to be alwent 3 dnys. Large rewards w ere offer
ed, and the most unremitting exertions made to
discover some clue to the fate of those we began
to mourn as dead. Four days thus passed away,
aid tbe worst fears of our hearts were confirmed
in our minds. We deemed it impossible that
human nature could sustain such suffering and
extreme imit ations as tbey must have undergone
for -five mnMKutive days. Hope fled, and the
dark hAdow of despair rested upon all hearts.
r our long weary days or toil and anguish fled
and no tidings rame! On the evening of the

It apieared from their narrative, that they
must have come within a short distance of our
tents, but, supposing themselves past them, had
retraced their stejis, and after SC hours constant
waiting, louiid themselves iu tbe same spot they
bad started Irom. They then struck the beach,
and walked entirely round the Uan.l a Katun

A short time after tbe party left in the boat for
the Ingoon, a new tent was commenced and fin-
wil off with a nice board floor, so that in this
respect we were, during the remainder of our
tny, very comfortable and w ell heltercd, by the
double canvas, from the sun and weather. Two
or three times it rained for a few hours quite
hard, but we always succeeded in getting a dry
place bomcw here.
'The four or five day immediately succeediug
the return of the wanderers was passed in writing
b tters to our friend in Honolulu and the United
Stater, to send by the long boat, w bich was near
ly ready to launch. Upon a desert ieland,cutoff
irom ail intercourse wiin tne worw, our minus
must have lieen peculiarly affected, and we found
it quite a difficult matter to write a n easy and
natural style, so as not to alarm unnecessarily
our friends. Finally, tbe letters were all ready,
tbe boat completedand we only waited the first
smooth tune to launch. 1 lus occurred upon a
Sunday, and notw ithstanding tbe sacred charac
ter of the day, we all ft It that the circumstances
of our situation would justify the seeming viola
tion of tho day. before launching the long-boat,
it was necessary to carry out an anchor, made
for the occasion, to haul her out beyond the reach
of the breakers. Accordingly, the anchor was
ecurctl in the whale-boat, men selected and
kt.tn.Iin9 rrwilv to iiunn in the boat. Tbe word
is given to above off, and with stout hearts and
luary strokes the little boat is impeled forward,
lireaker after breaker follow each other iu quick
mrmnHrii. like the sturdy blows of the smith,
w hit h ahe rides over in safety. But as tbe thief
which cometh in the night season, is the insidious
wave that begins to form beyond tbe breaking
water. At first, but a jierceptible undulation as
it apiroachea the reef, it acquires strength and
power, and comes thundering on as though con
scious of its fearful majesty and might. Vain,
oh, puny l-at and strong hearts alike, are your
efforts! Though the might of a thousand men
were there, still vain would be the struggle.
Nearer ami more near tbe dread enemy approach
es, rearing iu horrid form aloft, until it strikes
ibe liont, and its work is accomplished! With
training eyes, we watch the receding wave, and
right joyous are our hearts to see all striking out
manfully ami stoutly for tbe shore, or clinging to
tbe Utal for safety. All but one poor fellow
rear bra i he shore be still struggles with the an
gry ami fierce wrters, I nit above the maddening
war id" Ibe surf ami the shrill rry ,f the sea-bird,
ia hrard his shriek of wild despair and agony.
Aa oon aa an attempt to rescue him could le
made, three or four daxhed into the surf, and the
captain ucceeded in hauling him ashore. For
two boura, every exertion waa made to restore
him to conCHHiiie, but though he bad been
only 10 NiiiiHtrs in the water, and at no time he-;
low the aurfoce, all our effort failed. God had
eIU-d bia spirit home. The next day, the last
offices of man to his A llow man were rendered
lb licautiful service of the Church of England
read oter his remains, and with sorrow ful hearts
ami thoughtful minds, we left "the sleeper with
hia (od to reta." If honesty of piiroe, a con-,
cienlious discharge of duty and true generosity
of soul find merit in Heaveo.thy sins, poor Juan!
will be bghtlv regarded at tbe judgment day.
After this "fruitless attempt, we were oMiged
to wait for a fortnight ere the surf was sufficient
ly moderate to w arrant another trial. On the
morning of tbe 7th of February, the boat was
launched, placer! in charge of ber crew, consist
ing of tbe 1st mate and 4 men, and anchored out
ide of the reef in safety. Tbe rest of the day
waa pas-ed in getting on board water, w ood and
prorLiorm for tba voyage, but before this could
m entirely effected, tbe sea began to nse and
rendered it extremely dangerous to m through
tho aurf. The next day, however, by 9 o'clock
everything was oo board, and about half past 9
the link veaael weighed anchor, made sail to the
onrthward and eastward, and went gallantly on

Wk eDt n al,owance of 2 small cups a day,
which, among 7 or 8, was quite a small quantity.
Our allowance of water was from 2 to 3 bottles
a uay, enough ordinarily, though sometimes more
would have been accentable. We
meat of the booby and other sea fowls quite pal-
worn puruouea ior o or iu Hours, and
then made into a stew; but a good appetite to
enjoy such living is an essential, and this we
were all blessed with. During the whole time
we were upon the island, notwithstanding the
oppressive heat of the weather, which was at
times insufferable, not a single case of sickness
occurred wnich we could trace to the climate.
F our or five weeks after our arrival upon the
island, that part of it w here our ship and the
Mozart were wrecked began to assume quite a
civilized appearance, aud between the two places
frequent travel had worn quite a road. On one
side, our settlement consisted of 7 or 8 respect
able canvas houses, 2 of these large and commo
dious the rest suited to the wants of their own
ers. In front of most of them flag staffs were
erected, and on Sundays flags always hoisted
upon them, on which day the service of the
hpiscopal Church was always read, and many
of the crew attended. At the wreck of the Mo
zart there was quite a village, boasting of its
French Hotel, Restaurateur and other public
houses, w here man and beast could, according to
notice, meet ample entertainment with tbe best
the market affords. Among other notices was
one to tbe effect that volunteers were wanted for
Fanning's Island, "please apply at the Star and
Garter," aud a notice of a reward of $5 for re
covery of a snuffbox, lost or mislaid. After the
departure of the launch, we were anxious to send
to Fanning's Island, thinking that a ship might
be found there, but no volunteers offered, and
the expedition was abandoned.
From the time the launch sailed, scarcely a
day passed without our meeting together aud ex
pressing our opinion as to the chances of her
reaching Honolulu the time. when we should
look for a vessel, &c. As this time approached,
we began to feel apprehensive that the launch
would not reach Honolulu, but would be com
pelled to go to some of the leeward islands; and
our minds were about made up that we should
have to trust our fortunes to tbe frail vessel now
Thursday morning, the 16th of March, about
9 o'clock, a sail was discovered bearing about
North from our tents and standing to the south
ward and eastward. io one would believe the
assertion until convinced by optical demonstration
tnat tnere was no mistake. 1 Here betore our
eyes, moved gallantly ami gracefully, tbe fairest
object that ever met our gaze a sight which our
weary eyes had watched for, many a weary day,
and w hich w e might never again behold. What
a revulsion of feeling ! But a brief moment
since how isolated our condition--how unhappy
our hearts how filled with melancholy forebod
ings our souls ! Now the spirit of joy fills every
heart speaks in each eye in the flushed coun
tenance and the huht elastic tread. .As soon as tne
sail was discovered, a messenger was despatch
ed to : communicate the glad tidings of good
news" to those who were at the other wreck,
but it met them about half way, making all
haste to get over and launch the whale-lioat for
the nurnose of communicating with the ship.
Never was there such a scene of excitement, and
various and contradictory were the gurmises in
relation to the vessel. Some were of opinion
that she was a man-of-war come expressly for
us others, that she was a chance vessel, a
w haler. As she approached the island we were
satisfied from th manner of her reducing sail,
that she was a man-of-war, and shortly after, the
fl,. waa discovered. By the time the
mo fr.n tho nthor tpnts arrived the vessel had
rounded the eastern point of the island and w as
shut out from our view. In a lew momeiiis ue
ltaa 1 1 mnila) fill 1 and stood to the North,
and from these circumstances we began to tear
that she had not come for us, nor seen the sig
nals, and that after all, we should be disappoint
ed in our hone of heinff relieved. No time was
hist however, in getting the boat launched in
hope of overtaking her, and chase was given,
the men bending cheerfully to the oars, the cap
tain steering the boat. l ne wina uy iu
began to freshen, and as the boat drew her slow
length along and made but little progress, we
thought her chance of overtaking the ship a des-
a I . m tut nan
Derate one. 1 wo nours oi anxious 'r"
passed away in watching the ship till she was
hull down and still standing away from tbe island.
Everything wore the most discouraging appear
ance when some one reported two boats in sight.
After watching attentively and eagerly for some
time, every one was satisfied of the fact, and in
about an hour the boat returned, bringing us the
intelligence that Mr.'Jayne bad reached Hono
lulu in 2idays, ami was now ou Iward jhe bar
celle, w hich vessel had lieen despatched to our
...!.r i.r tho French Consul as soon as intclli-
iiiivi - f - " rm-va i
him of our disaster. The surf
w as too high to attempt anything this day, and
nothing was done. . .
The. next morning the Haablio hove in sight
and aliout 7 o'clock Capt. Jameson landed and
breakfasted w ith us, being the first guest we had
entertained. After breakfast Capt. Jameson
returned to the schooner, Mr. Hobson and Capt.
Curphev going with him and afterward on board
the Sari-elle for the purpose of interpreting be
tween Mr. Ten Eyck, who was on board, and
the officers, and making arrangements to embark
the ladies and baggage. About noon they re
turned with Mr. Ten Eyck and the first beu
tenant of the ship.- Mr. Jayne also landed with
a whale-boat, and two man-of-war Iwats were
anchored outside to take off the baggage which
wa sent off to them through the surf by the
i..i.jw..i Akniit A nVlock the first lieutenant
returned to'the ship, which had been standing ofll
and on tbe island, it navmg wtu
him that in case the surf would admit, the boats
should be anchored in the same place in the
morning, ready to take the ladles to the ship. 1 be
next day and the day after, the surf was so high
aa to renderlit impracticable to attempt anything.
During the time we had been upon the island,
nearly three months we had observed that at tbe
full and change of the moon, though tbe wind
did not rary in strength, and there was nothing
to indicate the proximity of bad weather, the

Ma. Editox, I was interested ia reading the ankle
aigaed "Joanea - in your paper of tbe 15th inct wit
that I fully approve the poaiiioa or criucism of the wri
ter but aa yoa justly ol.aerve, his remark epea a a-kie
held for discussion upon topics ef deep interest to tint
iBlaBt aauon " Aad may we aot hope that ike sane
wnier, or aoate other pmoa oa the sane aide of the oa
twn, will pursue the subject, Hid point out the precise
line of policy to he pursued by this government 1 A full
and candid discussion of this subject Iv those who hon
estly differ in opinion, Vould help to settle Ibe minds of
many, with regard to the true policy wbkh ought to le
pursued. There is no lack of complaints, but does not
justice require that these complaints should be put in a
ornmte torro, and tbe true course definitely pointed
out i .
There are evidently three distinct lines of policy advo-
vatm iu tun nine aiDgaum, io one or oiner oi wnicb, we
all more or less incline. The first is advocated bj those
who regard the native Inhabitant as "altogether a vul
gar, vile, disgusting, degraded set of animals," who con
sider it "no sin to steal, or he, or practice any kind of de
ceplion." These persons of course pay little regard to
the good of these "disgusting animals? in tbe policy they
advocate. They would open wide tbe door to tbe free in
gress of a letter race of beings, whatever their moral
character ; and allow all equal priviliges, naturalized or
not ; and free all foreigners from responsibility to native
courts and thus set up, virtually, a separate and aggres
sive government, which would soon succeed in extermin
ating the "animals," so "vile and disgusting" from the
land. This course of policy can le seriously advocated
only by those who adopt the maxim, that "might makes
right," aoa is worthy of no regard by any who- have a
spark of humanity, not to say benevolence, remaining in
But there are two other lines of policy open to those
who have influence ia tbe government, both of which
may be advocated by honest minds, and true friends to
this people. It ia the merits of these two systems which
we would rejoice to see discussed in your paper by tbe
honest advocates of each system. One of these is suli-
stantially the system, pursued by the present government,
of admitting naturalized foreigners to all the rights of
citizenship under tbe present sovereign, and to a share in
Ibe internal government of the islands ; and of urging
forward the cultivation of ibe soil ihe industry and civi
lization of the people by the aid and example of for.
The main feature of the other system, if I understand
it, is more exclusive, and would confine the administra
tion of government to native Ixirn subjects, at least so far
as official administration is concerned, excluding foreign
ers from the right of soil in fee simple, and attempting to
bnng along gradually the native Hawaiians to sustain
all the institutions of an enlightened, civilized and Chris
Much may be said in favor of both these systems ; a
ide field is here open for discussion. What does justice
require? What does benevolence requite? What does
expediency require? Are both systems feasible, and
which would result in the greatest good to the Hawaiian
race ? These and many other inquiries would come into
the discussion and miht lead to useful modifications of
