For the Polynesian.
Mr. Editor, With your permission I will
avail myself of your columns to call the at
tention of the community to a subject which
yearly is presenting to us stronger claims,
for action. This town with a foreign resi
dent population, numbering above 500 souls,
has no suitable place of worship, for them.
Some may say that the Seamen's Chapel af
fords the necessary accommodation. If this
building were intended for this class it is too
small to accommodate half their number, but
it is not and we are credibly informed, and
is has also come to our own experience, that
the appropriation of the best part of this build
ing for pews by the residents and the num
bers that are in the habit of attending are
impediments in the way of seamen. They
view the building and labors of the chaplain
as turned from their legitimate channel.
The consequence with many is a repugnance
to place themselves, in a situation which
must necessarily produce embarrassment, for
although their right to a free seat in any por
tion of the building is undoubted, yet the
sight of a pew door, or a cushion implies a
private claim. These cushions are also a
source of perplexity to some of the residents
themselves, and under the present arrange
ment it is impossible always to ascertain
when and when scats can be taken without
offence to those who consider their claims as
better, on account of having furnished the
cushions. . I have seen a gentleman and lady
who were entering a slip occupied but by one
person, refused a scat because that person was
expecting some of his friends. The residents
have contributed liberally towards the Chapel
and the privileges of seats have been granted
them, but it is certainly neither wise or ex
pedient that this half and half system should
prevail. The chapel should be either free to
all or the slips transformed into pews and sold
or let. I know residents who stay away from
divine worship, on account of this irregulari
ty and because they do not wish to throw any
obstacle in the attendance of seamen, and it
is a fact that they are deterred from going on
account of the seats being so much tilled by
the residents. Now 1 ask, Mr. Editor,
whether a better arrangement could not be
made; in short, whether, considering the
present numbers and wealth of the foreign
residents, it would not be best for them to
form a church and sustain a clergymen for
themselves, and not be dependent longer up
on the means of others who perhaps arc no
more able to give than we.
Yrs. Respectfully, Querv.
In reply to this communication, we would
state that the same facts have frequently sug
gested similar ideas to us, and while we can
bear the highest testimony to the zeal and
fidelity with which the present chaplain per
forms his multifarious duties, and the respect
and affection with which he is viewed by all
classes, yet it appears to us that the objects
of the Seamen's Friend Society would be
more directly accomplished could the chap
lain be enabled to devote his pastoral labors
entirely to them. Enough visit this port to
fill the Chapel during most of the year, and
we feel assured that there exists among them
a strong desire to avail themselves of any re
ligious advantages which may be offered. It
is also to be considered that the manner and
diction which might most favorably afl'ect
them, would not be so suitable to the more
varied shore inhabitants, and if we apprehend
the matter rightly, the primary object of a
Bethel is for the religious instruction of sea
men. To remove then even the appearance
of any objections such as have been urged
by Query, we are decidedly of the opinion
that the time has arrived when the prelimi
nary steps should be taken towards the es
tablishment of a church. It will take consi
derable time and money to effect it, but until
a building could be erected, a hall might be
hired for a place of worship. It would not
require a large salary to induce a suitable
clergyman to settle among us, and one once
established, we feel assured that the number
of church-goers would be increased and his
influence prove an investimable benefit to
our growing community. A difficulty pres
ents itself, as to his denomination. Without
expressing our own opinion, we will merely
observe that having conversed with number
who have the accomplishment of this object
at heart, they have unanimously expressed
their opinions in favor of a selection from the
Episcopal Church; and this opinion is main
ly from those who are not of that faith them
selves, but consider her discipline and doc
trines as best calculated to unite a communi
ty in which so great a diversity of opinions
on religious topics prevails, as in this. This
is a matter for further reflection, and what
ever may be the result, we earnestly hope
that this subject will not be dropped, but that
some persons will take it upon themselves to
learn the sense of the community and to act
