M shoeing a respectable progress of the nation in
constitutional forms, were not characterized by so
much show and excitement aa those of tho 20th
May, 1843. The novelty of the spectacle is over.
The Hawaiian Government is now expected to con
duct all its relations in accordance with the civil
iacd forms they hive adopted, and the fear for tho
future must be, that they will not always bo judged
by the past in relation to them, but by the more
perfect standards of polity which they ocek to fol
low. Thi nation has much yet to acouiro amon
all its classes before it can meet the full desires of
its friends. In the meanwhile its humble endeavors
at organization and advancement, should enlist the
kindly sympathies and countenance of residents and
We are pleased to see that better, taste is begin
ning to prevail among the foreign officers near His
Majesty's person. The more simple their attire the
better. The unmeaning crowns on tho coats arc
banished we hope never to return. To be consist
ent to royalty, w e presume some mark of distinction
is necessary, if so, a star and riband are as little
objectionable as any that His Majesty can order for
the foreign gentlemen in his sen ice.
Business was suspended during the day, and al
though it was a national holiday, perfect oidtr pre
vailed. Indeed all tho anniersaries thu year, even
including the 4th July, have been quietly enjoyed.
This speaks better for the nation than if with more
noise and hilarity, more dissipation and casualties
g2gSlAN, SATURDAY. AUGUST l,
iCT We give this week the remarks of Commo
dore Stockton before tho congregation at the atone
church, on Sunday the 23th of June last, as they
were stenographised at the time. It is but justice to
the Commodore to bear in mind that they wcro made
off-hand and to a native congregation, whose tastes
would be more gratified and attention better arrest
ed by a redundancy of expression and ornament than
by a more condensed and less imaginative stylo.
One powerful "irgumcnt pervades the whole, that i,
happiness h the natural result of goodness and mis
ery of wickedness, whether in nations or individuals.
The Commodore found the only true guide to good
ness and escape from evil in the Bible. This ho ap
plied equally to man in every relation of life. It
wa clearly the drift of the Commodore to inculcate
virtue and kindness as bringing their own reward
with them, and an unshaken faith in the laws and
promises of the Creator. Theso require not the tes
timony of man to their excellence, for their author
chip guarantees that. But an address of this char
acter, coming from an. individual who may be sup
posed from his wealth, public relations and position
in society to have drunk deep of all the enjoyments
the world affords, cannot fail of making an impres
sion upon readers generally, and particularly upon
those who are striving for happiness in the accumu
lation of nches, honors or power. It is a worthy
tributo from the soldier to the Prince of peace, and
as such mada no inconsiderable impression upon his
hearers. From missionaries and professional relig
ionists such sentiments are expected, and their effect
is but seldom proportionate to their truth. But in
this instance it was unexpected both from the man
and occasion. Consequently' it was the more im
pressive. Commodore Stockton had been represent
ed as the officer who was to revolutionize this na
tion overthrow its government, and gratify reckless
private passion at the expense of justice None who
know how to appreciate the honor which character
izes American naval officers, and the kindly spirit
which prevades the general government, particular
ly towards the King of these Islands.could for a mo
ment have indulged even in the most distant belief
of such a consummation. And we venture to say
that however favorable on opinion the friends of gov
ernment had of Commodore Stockton as an officer
and gentleman.not ono expected a display of so much
that characterizes the philanthropist and christian.
Let those who are disposed to cavil at euch senti
ments consider the man, his rank and experience.
If in future naval commanders will follow this laud
able example, and instead of exciting the always too
inflamable elements of our social and political world
to a greater heat, as has too often been the case,
endeavor to spread abroad a mantle of christian
charity and practical 'usefulness, we all shall have
do: ble occasion to rejoice in the visit of the Congress
and ber kind-hearted commander. .

The government of this country has orcercd us to

but as they got over it safely enough, t he comparison

It is about as Moslem an n flair of sword or baptism,
as any since the Hegira. If William B. Ide had sub
scribed himself instead of "Commander in Sonoma"
"Commander of the Faithful," and raised the cres
cent instead of the bear, ho could fiave carried us
bodily back twelve centuries, and instead of Califor
nia we should have rubbed our eyes to see if we
were not actually among the ruins of tho 6evcn
churches, with a cloud of Arabs just sweeping from
out the horizon, preparatory to electrifying the lux
urious Greeks with a new faith and government.
Hut seriously this is a singular affair. Time and
circumstance give, we all know, a difij? rent coloring
to deeds. Success is often honor and failure dis
Had Mr. Ide appeared with his troop and procla
mations in the territories of France, they all would
havo been shot in less than a deck, as pirates; if in
Turkey not a reck would have escaped tho bow
string. In California, if successful they will be hail
ed as the gallant founders of a free and model gov
ernment tho apostles of republicanism, and patriots
of purest water. That California is destined to
Analo-Saxon rule and institutions seems to us as
palpable as its hides and tallow. Moreoter we be
lieve that both when once orderly established will
be an advantage to even the present-heretic-hating,
bullock-hunting inhabitants. The religious and po
litical views of the invaders and the invaded are so
widely different, that many years must elapse before
enmity and jealousy will expire. Tho political
movements thus far seem to bo the result ot private
machinations, strengthened no doubt by tho result of
affairs in Texas and the hostile attitude of tho U. S.
and Mexico. Should war occur, tho U. S. would
undoubtedly seize California, and relievo Mr. Ido of
much of his anticipated labors in gencrai-mp ana
statesmanship. If not, the U. S., unable to prevent
her citizens' crossing the western deserts, must cool
ly look on and not interfere. Annexation is less
probable there than in Texas, and it may be a daugh
ter republic may arise there which in time shall be
faircnoufhto be acknowledged by its parent, and
its illegitimacy oveiloked. If so, we of the Ha
waiian kingdom must cultivate amicable relations
with the now constellations ofcthe west, and bargain
off our coffee and sugar, for their lumber and w heat.
The invaders themselves throw the sword into tho
acale. On it they have staked the issue. For our
gelf we trust that out of the present chaos and the
.-..-.l.t ii to come, order and freedom will
arise, and that the political and social institutions of
California, under whatever government may be es
tablished will be of a character to refloct favorably
upon the destinic of this country in every point of
