lQWe devote this number one of a new volume
to clearing up. We have had a good deal of matter
in type for two or three weeks, waiting an oppor
tunity to go bcfors -the public. Amongst other
things, the note of the Minister of Foreign Rela
tions, addressed to us on the22d ult, and his Des
patch No. 12 to the Commissioner of the United
States, both of which ought to have appeared with
the Despatch No. 92 of the latter. But we had
no roo.-n fur them, and only squeezed in Mr.
Geeuo's communication by giving it preference of
a Term Report of the Supreme Court, some de
cisions of the Chief Justice, some statistics hand
ed us by the Minister of Foreign Relations, an ac
count of the cruise of the John Adams, and come
editorial items of our own. We alluded to this
preference when we spoke of an act of courtesy;
but that we were crowded and bad to lay aside
whit was of more general interest, there would
have been little courtesy in our inserting what we
were ordered to insert and obliged to insert.
Whilst on this subject we may mention having
heard that the brevity with which we introduced
that No. 1)2 has been commented on. Had we
taken up more room in calling attention to the
Despatch, the Despatch itself must have been left
out. To put the thing in a familiar way, we were
something in the position of a traveller who takes
advantage of a halt for a few moments at a railway
station to eat a little he mu.t cither make a short
grace or go without his dinner.
through Prince Kamehameha. The most interesting
discussion of the session then ensued, in which Prince
Kamehameha took the lead, and the House adjourned
till to-morrow, at 12 o'clock, making the acceptance of
of the Report th business of the day.

Address ta the Polyaesiaa.
Sah-taijos ! While dwelling within this Kingdom
in former years, your person was agreeable, every thing
in you was respectable, and honored by the public. Tbe
Government therefore coveted you and took yen to be a
first born and heir, wherein to expose in language the
tra nsactions of the Government.
Your former Editors were means of your being pop
ular throughout the Pacific Ocean, and your presence
among the wise and enlightened fathers was greeted
with Hurrah! Hurrah!! The North Star of Hawaii
Hurrah! Hurrah!! Hurrah!!! Tbe North Star of Ha
waii! The great fathers rejoiced at the eorruscationa of
the rays of light within this dark ocean, and the flag
of light was floating over the Hawaiian Government.
But now many abandon you: in tbe enclosure where
I reside (Pamoo) in Nuuanu street, there are about
thirty foreigners, who will take you no more; there are
others at Kawaiahao, and in other places.
Why do they abandon you?
Because your Editor (Kahu) supplies you with bit
ter food, the 11m, .4m1imAm and the colocynth, with fish,
the liziard, the mouse, and whatever is filthy and
loathsome, and he is picking about among the skins and
castaway bones; and tbe dogs feed you, therefore the
foreigners are disgusted with you.
How can you be purified 1 By the removal of your
Editor who crams you with evil and disgusting things,
and feeds you with the remains of the graves of Fatu
hiva, Figee, and the savage Islands.
- Moreover let him leave you, without being removed,
because of his incapacity in feeding you preperly. Let
there be a new Editor sought for, of suitable character
to feed you with agreeable things, that your stomach
may swell out with good things, and we children be fa
vored under your wings.
(Signed) S. M. KAMAKAU, Representative.
There is much real poetry in the above, but Kama
kau & a poet The allusion to the North Star is pretty,
but his imagination does not actually culminate till he
sees thirty foreigners in Pamoo who will take the Poly
netlan no more.

injustice to present them before your readers in so false

just half the price charged for single copies. 1 cannot
think that you would say that those availing themselves

regarded as " sixers at Cambridge and servitors at

I hav4 felt called to make these few remarks in justice
to the missionaries and ex-missionaries who are placed
by your editorial in so disparaging a position before
your readers, especially as I am perhaps the only one who
has been cognizant of the whole transactions from the

did had the facts in tbe case been before yon.

8. N. CASTLE.
Our correspondent is right in supposing that we did
not know of the understanding he alludes to. It ap
pears to have been a traditional arrangement of which
no written record was preserved among the memorabil
ia of this office. But we would ask whether the sys
tem of making a reduction in proportion to the number
of papers subscribed for, is not pursued to encour
age circulation in out of the way places, and more es
pecially as an inducement for news-men and agents to
exert themselves ? We can very well understand why,
f any body procured us a dozen or twenty subscribers
in San Francisco, Panama, Massachusetts or Sydney,
we might make a reduction in his favor. The more un
likely the place, we should say, the more the allowance;
such orders come as God-sends, as things not calculat
ed on. But when parties live in the place where the
paper is published there being, moreover, no rival jour
nal and make part of theTiome community to whom a
local paper is of more interest than it can be to people
living in distant countries and under different institu
tions, we hardly see the advantage to be derived by re
ducing the price in favor of those who enroll their
names at the office of a common friend rather than on
the publisher's subscription book. It appears upon
looking farther into the matter, that the 17 copies sent
direct for Mr. Castle to distribute were only charged
$3 each ; the twenty-two copies that were put into, wrap
pers and mailed were put down at $4 each. Neverthe
less, if iu the bluntness Which is characteristic of an hon
est intention, we sent our remarks too far home, we can
only say that we regret a certain want of finish that
marks the productions of our pen. Others might have
put forward as much, and no offense been taken. Our
plainness is our fau't. There are some men who mean to
sting, but convey their venom in such luscious words
that they remind us of Cleopatra's adder carried to her
in a basket of fizs. We cannot say to them with the
countryman who brought the reptile, " We wish you
joy of your worm!" But leaving the manner alone,
we should in any ease have made the change intimated
our last issue.
We cannot, however, part with so many subscribers.
and so many mre readers (forty names have been ta
ken off our subscription list since last Saturday, and
how many pairs of t yes read each copy it would be hard
to say,) without a passing expression of regret. What
ever differences may exist between us and the Missiona
ries, we have received frequent hospitality at their hands.
We do not care to injure truth by an exaggeration, and
assert that the rule has been universal, yet of the dead
we will say nothing, or speak welL The Missionaries
proved conversable, intelligent and anxious to hear what
was going on, its why and wherefore. If their ears had
sometimes a tendency to remould a little what entered
their portals, we blamed them no farther than to say
that, like printers' composing-sticks set to one measure
till the screws became rusty, their way of hearing eould
not be re-adjusted without the intervention of a little
force perhaps the infliction of an unwelcome shock.
We have found the head clear, and the eye, though
short-sighted, almost microscopically keen to objects
near at hand. Perhaps there was a little too much feel
ing that they belonged to the tribe of Levi. Had their
fold not been so high, it ia possible that nov and then a
stray sheep browsing on tbe outer plain, would have
mingled with their flock, and, going oat with them.
ave learned and remembered how pleasant it is to lie
down in their green pastures and stand beside their still
waters.- We would not willingly have missed them, but
being gone, we hope they may find a paper more worthy
of tbem than this has lately been, and that they will
encourage the sheet about to have' a place here, as they
did this, by securing themselves copies at half price.

But I assert that a faithful execution of the law will
still more and immensely diminish this crying evil. Let
us not stultify ourselves by supposing that nobody but
licensed rumsellers can cause it to be ao executed. Let
the government once be in earnest, and prick on our
police to the work, it will be done. I know our leading
officers of police in Lahaina to be capable and worthy,
and if their zeal has flagged in the discharge of a difficult
and trying duty, I have no heart to blame them so long
as they receive everything but encouragement from the
government. They have urged without effect the most
simple and salutary regulations to promote the end, sug
gested by experience. They have sought in vain a law linv-

a drunkard factory exists in that place I There is the
machine, there is the raw material, there is the din ef

To the Editor of the Polynesian :
la a previous communitatura I asserted the settled views
of the large and influential majority of the voters of La
haina, upon tbe question of licensing the retail of spir
its in that place. For non-residents to dictate to us
here our interests he, is impertinence. For govern
ment to act with disregard of our views, in respec to
matters concerning ourselves chiefly if not alone, is. be
it said with due respect, a species of oppression.
Your correspondent H represents that the object
of the new law which be so highly extols, is to combat
and put down tbe illegal sale of liquors not to dimin
ish their consumption, as I understand him, for in the
bast paragraph he avows his wish that men should not
be restricted by law from following their depraved in
clinations in this and other respects. We cannot dis
pute, then, since we have no common ground to stand
on. Such an avowal of principles is its own commen
tary. But U presenta some well-known facts which re
quire a different expounding from his, and in order to
be understood want a supplement of the rest of the facts
pertaining to the subject. No doubt there are thirty or
more pulperias on our beach. There are possibly twen
ty thousand dollars worth of wines and liquors taken
out of bond. Does this prove that rumselling though
illegal, is unrestrained ? Strange then that not more is
consumed by the masters, officers and crews of the
two hundred whales hi pa touching at our port, besides
foreigners and natives on shore. Thousands of seamen
are annually discharged at Lahaina, with considerable
amounts of money, which they freely laviah. Give a
free trade in liquors and IL's formidable $20,000,
would speedily be raised to $50,000. No man of can
dor and sense can deny that even the present law, with
its feeble provisions and execution does powerfully re
strain the sale and consumption of liquors.
Look at the criminal record. With us, in '65, there
were nine oon victims for illegal selling. In Honoluha,

This was an action of trespass brought to recover
the value of a certain horse, which the plaintiff al
leged the defendant bad sold in his official capacity
as Pound Keeper of Honolulu, without complying
with the statute. It appeared in evidence that tbe
plaintiff hearing that his horse was impounded,
rode to the pound to get him, but not finding him
there, supposed be had been misinformed; bnt that
subsequently, on attending the pound keepers pub
ic aale, he found bis horse, with other estrays,
about to be sold at Auction. lie expressed bia sur
prise to the defendant, and told him that be had
been to the pound frequently without being able
to find his horse. The defendant replied that the
horse had been kept in an adjoining pasture, and
that he could not deliver him up unless the plain
tiff first paid the pound charges, amounting to
$30. This tbe plaintiff refused to do, telling the
defendant to go on with tbe sale, and remained at
auction and bid upon the horse.
Chief Justice Lee charged tha jury, that pound
keepers had the right to take animals Irom the pound
to give them drink ; to doctor them ; and on Sun
days and other days, when no fbod could be obt lined,
they might tike them out for the purpose of feed
ing theia ; but as a general rule, they were bound
to keep them in the enclosure set apart by the
Governors, and of the location and extent of which,
public notice had been given according to law. If
the pound keeper wished to dedicate any pasture
to the use of a pound, he should first procure tbe
consent of the Governor of his Island, and- get him
to set it apart for such purpose, and give due notice
of the same in some public newspaper. He has
no power to set apart any such pasture himself,
and if he does, and removes the animal from the
pound, except in cases of necessity, he will be liable
to those who resort to the pound lor their animals
and fail to find them. If the defendant in this
case removed the plaintiff's horse, to an enclosure
not set apart by the Governor, and the plaintiff
went frequently to the pound, without being able
t) find h:s animal, then the pound keeper had no
right to demand the $30, as pound fees, before
he would deliver him up ; or to eell the horse.
But it is contended on the part of the defendant,
that the plaintiff was present at the sale, and gave
his consent to the same not only by his words, but
acts, and if the jury find that he was there, and
gave not a constrained, but free consent to the sale,
then he ought not to recover.
The jury found a verdict of $30, for the plain
tiff. R. G. Davis, Esq., Attorney for the Plaintiff.

In the matter of the Probate of the Will of Me
This was an appeal from tbe decision of Judge
Andrews, of the Probate Court, on the ground that
the will had not been duly proved, and was not
duly witnessed. The court ocafirmed the decision
of Judge Andrews admitting the will to Probate;and
remarkedthat.in the absence of any statute controll
ing the subject, two good witnesses to a will were
quite sufficient ; and it would not say bnt that one
good witness would do where his testimony was
supported by circumstantial evidence. It would
be time enough to decide the question of the suffi
ciency of one witness when it arose.

G. S. Wright v. Hawaiian Steam Navigation
This was amotion for a judgment by default, on a
promisory note for $20,000, given by J. T. Wright,
as Agent of tho Hawaiian Steam Navigation Com
pany, to the plaintiff, his brother.
Messrs. Rites, Montgomery, and Harris appear
ed on behalf of A. G. Jones and other stock hol
ders of the company in opposition to the motion.
alleging by affidavit, that J. T. Wright was never
the duly appointed Agent of the Hawaiian Steam
Navigation Company, and had no authority to ex
ecute the said promissory note to the plaintiff.
Chief Justice Lee said that he had little or no
doubt that a general Agent had power to buy and
sen ior tne company, in tbe ordinary course of its
business ; and perhaps he might give the note of
the company for purchases made on behalf of the
company within the scope of his authority ; but in
L . t 1 ... " .
ucn a, case, ine consideration ought to be set lortn
on the face of the note ; be otherwise shown ; or at
least, be stated in the petition ; but that in tbe
resent case, neitherof these things had been done.
Ic further said, that even though no one should
appear to oppose the motion for judgment in a case
like this, it would still be the duty of tbe court, to
compel tbe plaintiff to show,
1st That the maker of the note was the legally
constituted agent of the Company.
2nd That as such agent, his powers were suffi
ciently broad to giv him authority to bind the
company, by his promissory note.
After some conversation between the court and
the counsel for tbe plaintiff, the motion was with
drawn, and the suit discontinued ; it being under
stood, that tho counsel opposed t the motion,
would raise no Question as to tbe power of the
plaintiff's counsel to bring a new suit.
