F ranee ha done, the sweeping claim before
Ilia Hawaiian Majesty to tbe contrary notwith
That the " system of labor tax" aJ ordained
by the sage counsels of Hawaii nei, for tbe ne
cessities of this people, is, m U$elf, a desirable
feature in tbe national policy, is not pretended.
Thi.t it would not lie adapted to such a state
of eoctety as exists in any well-civilized country
is equally plain. But tbat it has a positire fit
ness fur the present state of this nation is suffi
ciently evident to those, or many of those who
liest understand the social position which the na
tion now occupies.
But says your correspondent, it is the antag
onism of all that is equitable and righteous."
ill he ebow us how the proof of this confident
assertion ia to be got at? Is it " inequitable and
unrighteous" for this government to lay a tax of
$1 per annum upon every able bodied man fur
tbe purpose of educating the children or youth of
this nation? Will "Scribo"tell ws? The tax
may be high in amount, but that it is unrighteous,
be will not pretend. The "antagonism of that
is equitable" then is supposed to consist in lay
ing this tax in tabor at the option of the indivi
dual? We ak for evidence for lieht, bv which
this "antagonism" etc. shall appear, if indeed it
exists. Does it exist save in " ScriloV own
Again what are we to understand by the re
mark that the labor tax " more than any one
feature in the policy of the Hawaiian govern
ment tends to ezhaust its strength?1 Rather a
broad assertion and not larking in positivenes,
to be put forth without any attempt at proof!
Now we happen to know many good men, and
those too, of good sense, added to a correct un
derstanding of the operation of the "system of
labor tax," who differ toto ecelo in this matter
from your correspondent.
How further, this tax can be shoien to "par
alyse individual effort and enterprise," is an
other Mint, on which we would respectfully ask
information ;and until this is furnished, all we need
do is to express our utter disbelief in the truth of
the statement. Individual effort and enterprise
must needs be extremly feeble, if indeed an
amount of labor tax valued at $3 more or less is
sufficient to destroy it, even in the yet unfledged
For considerable time past we have had op
jKtrtunity for making observation the most thor
ough, upon the operation of the labor tax and its
influence upon the moral, social and physical in
terests of Hawaiian; and though formerly, enre-
lesslr holdinz opinions similar to those of
your correspondent, we have no hesitation in
saying that in our opinion there is not tbe slight
est objection to the tax in labor, ia the particu
lars so emphatically specified by him. It will
lie quite time however to prove a negative w hen
the proofs shall have been presented on the other
The feature of the labor tax which strikes
casual observer as most obnoxious, is the ap
parent oppressiveness of the system I say ap
parent. It is not real, tbe laborer being sup
posed to be trampled upon and coerced to toil
against bis own election in the premises; and to
a true-hearted freeman, no idea can be more re
pugnant than this point one may easily perceive
that the law provides for all, the largest liberty.
Tbe labor can be avoided at tbe option of each
individual, by the pre-payinent of lesa than six
Mt iter labor dayAir the school .tax: and the
same may probably I said of the land tax.
Pray where, in this system is the "antagonism to
equity?" The same alternative is granted to
individuals in partt of New England, perhaps
throughout all the States on the annual collec
tion of the highway tax. Whoever heard the
provision stigmatised as unjust or inexpelient?
Multitudes there gladly avail themselves of the
privilege on the contrary; it being easier for
them to work out the aforesaid tax than to raise
the amount in cash. What is just and wise in
the United States, we may safely assume, is not
unjust and inequitable here.
The idea that this labor tax involves a species
of slavery, is equally at odds with the truth. Tbe
law explicitly prescribes the days of labor, the
tteriods of each day when the work commences
and terminates and the distance beyond which,
men shall not be compelled to go to labor, and
appoints an overseer to superintend the opera
tions of those engaged. Around each and all,
thfjlaw throws its protecting shield throughout
tbe entire length and breadth of this process.
Now will "Scribo" point out, we again as

remote from tbe centre of trade on tbe islands, to
pay tbe school and land taxes in labor than in
cash." The latter commodity is to be had only
with the utmost difficulty and a sacrifice of time
which alone would keep the nation poor, were
cash to be demanded. The fact that so very
few of the people pay these taxes in cash or
goods (notwithstanding the government has re
duced the taxes to lesa than one-half, when paid
ia easn) is sufficient evideice that the people
would hardly regard " ScriboV proposed im
provement as an amelioration of the present con
dition whatever may be his own opinion of the
matter. ' .
In concluding these remarks, it mny lie said.
there are undoubtedly objections against tbe la
bor tax system. . But then of what portion of
national policy, in any country, can prefection be
affirmed? The Hawaiian government is young
in its cxicrience. As it gathers to itself fuibiess
of days, it may be reasonably hojed that with
God's blessing, it will also add to itself wisdom,
which shall anpear in the increasing maturity of
its counsels, in the gradual prrfcrtion of its in
stitutions and laws.

The U. S. S. of the line, Ohio, Captain C. K.
Stribling, arrived at Hilo, Hawaii on the 24th of
May, and for one month she has rested on our
On her arrival many of the crew were afflict
ed with scorbutic affections in consequence of
long confinement on ship board.
At Hilo each quarter watch has had two turns
of libertr on shore, of 48 hours each, and it is
remarkaole to see the rapid change produced on
have doubled in vigor, in cheerfulness and in
value by this season of relaxation. Fresh pro
visions, abundance of vegetables,ramblinga bath-
ng, sunshine, rain, a bland and salubrious atmos
phere and a luxuriant landscape, have all tend
ed to rouse the torpid system, quicken tbe vital
current and awaken tbe joyous beatings of the
We have no disposition to flatter or to "puff,"
but we can say in all honesty and truth, that we
have never had a less exceptionable visit from a
man-of-war since our residence at Hilo. Our
daily intercourse with Capt. S. and his intelli
gent officers has been of the most kind, courteous
and friendly character; and the conduct of the
crew, so far as we have witnessed or heard, has
been singularly quiet and orderly.
No drunkness, no quarrelling, no noisy and
boisterous mirth have disturbed our streets.
With about 150 men constantly on shore, our
days and nights have been almost as quiet as a
Sabbath. It is evident that tbe ship is under ex
cellent dicipline, and she does honor to her com
mander, her officers, her crew and her country.
May tbe noble Ohio never merit less praise.
Allow me to ask, what has secured such res
pect For this ship?
It is well known, tbat her present commander,
is a wise, upright, conscientious and competent
man; and that his officers do honor to them
selves ami to their profession. Further, her
crew may have been originally more moral and
have felt a higher self-respect than those of many
other ships. But after all, we ajqtretaenrt that
lb absence of alcohol, accounts for much, rciy
much, of the good order we see among this crew.
One barrel of ruin would spring a mine of fear
ful wrath among them. Through the blessing
of God, Hilo is flbt cursed with this fiery de
stroyer. We have a beauteous landscape, health
ful breezes, cooling showers, sparkling streams,
and hospitable hearts; but we do not furnish that
which distracts the brain, inflames the blood, de
stroys the character, consumes the body and
kills the soul. .
Capt. S. has twice very kindly sent his band
on shore, to play for the entertainment of tbe
natives and foreign residents. On one occasion
he delivered a short and pertinent address to the
native congregation, which was listened to with
great pleasure by all. . .
Through the politeness and generosity of Capt.
Stribling the following subscription by been
collected onboard the Ohio for the Iwrnefit of the
Seamens Chapel and reading room at Hilo.

Col. T. P. Allen, Post Office Aeent for Califor

California Mail from this city is of some two
tons weight, and that probably another ton will
be added from the Post Offices at Charleston,

Col. Allen goes nut as a sort of Postmaster
General for our Pacific Possessions, having pow

probably make san Francisco his head-quarters
for the present, though fretii the nature of his
service he will necessarily be ' in the saddle for
some months after his arrival out. ' He designs
making California bis permanent home, and his
family will follow him in January next.
The Government is fortunate in the choice of
Mr. Allen for this important station. He is a
gentleman of education, enterprise andrfhornugh
business habits, and has seen some service. He
graduated at West Point in 1834, served two
rears in the Florida War, and was subsequently
engaged as Government Engineer and Superin

much to the satisfaction of the friends of that
