SATURDAY. JANUARY 1, 1659.
According tu custom though not merelj as
a mattor of aaage, for we throw some soul into the
act we offer our readers the compliments of the
season, A Happt New Year ! Our readers, how
ever, make but a email fraction of those whom we
would include in our aspiration, for we wish a
happy beginning and a safe ending of this new
year that to-day has ushered in, to the great mass
and body of the nation, not one tithe of which can
an yet understand a word of this language that we j
write. And as before another New Year's Day j
comes round this vehicle of communication may be J
numbered among the things that have been, we i
will set forth briefly the character of some of those
beatitudes which we invoke, and which all have
an interest in that simple phrase, A happy new
year to you."
May as bountiful a share of the good things of
this world as even Princes dare to expect " bless
ings in mind, body and estate" be the lot of the
King and all the Royal Family.
May the Privy Council and the House of NJjles
(especially the latter) be augmented yi numbers
and wisdom ; and ns without an infringement of
the Constitution the House of Representatives can
not become more numerous, may it at least im
prove in wisdom, and in that sign of wisdom, taci
turnity. May the Judges of the Supreme and Superior
Courts maintain the character they long sines ac
quired of being possessed of patience, learning and,
metaphorically, a single eye ; and rauy dissenuions
among the people so decrease that the inferior
Judges, finding their time less occupied in deciding i
law in their turts, may Lave a little leisure to
study it out of hem.
May the Giant English Language, like a belted
Knight, triumph over that meaner tongue which
infests this country, and may the President of the
Board of Education act as its Esquire and follow
it to the wars.
May Azrael, the Angel of Death, whose wing j
throws that unmistakable shade upon the features
of the dying (according to the poetical belief of
the Orientals) here find his occupation gone. Or
rather, since that would be wishing this home of
ours converted into the Isles of the Immortals, may
he no longer be engaged in works of supereroga
tion, and in his place may a learned physician and
a gentle nurse hover about the sick Hawaiian's
bed not in a damp and musty hovel, but in a fair
and well provided hospital, with light and air, and
all uppliances to boot.
May the Virgin Soil (as they say at agricultural
meetings) be wedded to the plough, and prove a
fruitful mother. And (this is our own) may those
bastard productions which answer to the names of
Kikania, Hanoi and Wild Indigo, be banished from
sear the dwellings of men, like I&hmael the son of
the bondwoman, and may every mun's hand be
against them as they have hitherto been against
the work of every man's hand.
In fine, may our ports and harbors bristle with
Eid6t8, and our fields be heavy with cane and corn;
may our herds fear no new drought, nor our flocks
the pinched up, hungry dog that 6neaks among the
hills till the moment arrives for him to come down
upon the fold, like the Assyrian wolf ; may steam
ers bring our distant, places together; may our
whaleships be cumbered with the ppoil of the
ocean ; may our cups be filled with wine, not
' made," but manufactured, here, and, last not
least, may Mr. Harding be gifted to build us a
bridge or two that will not give way at the very
moment when they are most wanted.
' Although n unusually large aim.uut ot ship carpentering
and repairing has been going on in port durin the past tew
months, we have noticed a change for the bet'er in the effort
of captains to reduce the i-ipeiiT.es of their ship w hile in
port. These are always heavy, but the amount depends in
some degree o the disposition of a shipmaster. There has
been leu inclination among them to demonstrate the length
and heft of their purse, a well as tu make a show with Uat
iioree. This change baa been brought about partly by having
ageuts for vessel Here, and in part, perhaps, by the mode of
ending out capuibs rix the Latliruus to supersede those in
charge. In many cues this bai a good effect, though in norno
it seems hard to deprive a master of his benh on vague re
ports. The general effect of litis new plan is, however, un
questionably good." I foe. Com AdtertUer.
We copy the above from the P. C. Advertiser of the
23d ultimo. It is another of those singular misrepre
sentations of truth which have made that journal, with
all its fair outside and varied attractions, so totally
unreliable and rotten as to have become a by-word in
its own place and among its own community. It is
Slid to be one of the direst curses with which retribu
tive justice avenges the violation of truth, that the
habitual transgressor finally believes in his own lie;
still we are loth to think that the Advertiser believes its
own statements, as a general thing, and in this partic
The school of Journalists, in which our cotemporary
is no mean proficient, know well and act up to their
knowledge that a gimlet lie, a tortuous insinuation, a
qualified negation, or a reserved approval, seldom fail
of going farther, wounding deeper and sticking closer
to the object attacked than a direct falsehood which
seidom hits the mark, it is so blunt, so coarse, so easily
detected and refuted. .
m How far the Advertiser has acted upon this rule we
will now investigate.
It says: " We have noticed a change for the better in
the efforts of captains td reduce the expenses of their
ships while in port These are always heavy, but the
amount depends in some degree on the disposition of a
ship-master." This change, as well as the " less in
clination" for dissipation among the captains, Is attrib
uted partly to having agents for vessels here, and in
part, perhaps, by the mode of sending out captains via
the Isthmus to supersede those in charge."
If we take the kinks out of these sentences, they will be
found to contain grave accusations as unfounded as they
sxe injurious, assertions based upon exceptional capes, I
but to which the general experience of the whaling fleet
runs counter, and the endorsement of admitted indi
vidual wrong in furtherance of a plan that works upon
Tive or six years ago some ship owners in Now Bed
ford and New London, thought that the expenses of
their ships la Honolulu were too great, and that by
sending out stores and supplies and appointing an ",w ODi"er m any other walk ot lite, to
X . a .t v f.u t.- . 4 , th6ir "gious, honest and economical management
Agent here to do the business of their ships, they might ! abroad are chiefly owing the princely fortunes, the mar
economize, not only iu the price of the goods, but also j ble palaces, the rising cities, which stud tbe North
in the amount of drafts bearing a heavy rate of ex- j American coast ; that, like the majority of mankind,
ehange. Accordingly, we have had at various times j
from three to four agents, representing different firms t
in New Bedford and New London. But to understand
the working of this new system, it is necessary to un
derstand the working of the old. - We would therefore
say, that formerly a ship captain when he left home,
ntmsted with a valuable ship and the prosecution of a
long and dangerous voyage, felt hia self-respect and
J consequent responsibility raised within him; he knew
that his own interest, reputation and promotion de
pended essentially upon the manner in which he attend
ed to that of his owners; and when he arrived here, for
i xtistnnp. he made his own bargains wun me snip cnanu-
i 1 -
lers of the place, and knowing best what his ship want
ed and the least she could go out of port with, kept his
bills down to the lowest notch. The ship chandlers
again, supplied their goods at cash prices, without
charging either captains or owners for accommodations
furnished, temporary money advanced, or commission
on business done. And when they negotiated a bill for
a captain, they received their commission from the
buyer of the bill and not from the drawer, and thus the
Khip owner's interest was not affected by the operation,
Under the new plan of appointing egents to do the
business and assume the responsibility, which the cap-
tains formerly did and assumed, the working is or will
be this : the captain arrives here, and having neither
interest nor responsibility in the transactions done by
other hands, naturally feels but little inclination to
shave the market or stint himself or the ship in her re
cruits, repairs or general outfit, and consequently asks j
freely for many things which he otherwise might have !
contrived to do without; while the agent, with eventhe !
best will to study tha. interest of the ship owner and
economize expenses, is obliged to lake the captain's
word for what the ship wants, and thus really does not
mend the matter much, so far as the owner is concern
ed, while the latter has to pay the agent a commission
of from 2i to 5 per cent on whatever business he may
transact for the ihip an additional expense which did
not exist under the old system. That the plan of "hav
ing egents for vessels here " has really benefitted the
owners n't home to any perceptible degree, is a questiou
which we do not believe in, and which we think even
they are beginning to be skeptical about ; but that it
does not, aud in the nature of things will not, promote
the morale of the whaling fleet, or tend to elevate the
character or increase the ability of the captains or their
nearest officers, we are as confi lent as a full knowledge
of cause and effect can make a person.
We hope we shall not be inioUn Jerstoud or be obliged
to repeat, that it is the system of agencies we object to
and not the incumbents.
The Advertiser says: "There has been less inclination
among them (the captains) to demonstrate the length
and Left of their pur5es a3 Wfcll ag t0 niakc a show with
fist horses." Whit public or private good that jour
nal propose! to itself by the above expression of spleen
it malice, it 13 difficult to conceive. Perhaps it was
not intended for this latitude and longitude, but only to
take effect iu the far off homes of those on whom, as a
class, the imputation of dissipation is thus recklessly
thrown. Either the Advertiser assumes that amuse
ments are as incompatible with the character of a ship
captain as with that of a Methodist deacon, or it must
show that the inclination to and enjoyment of amuse
ments here, have, as a general thing, interfered with
the business of the captains, retarded their voyages and
increase j the expenses of the owners. If it is "the
length ami heft of their (owx) purses" that they make
a show of, can not the Advertiser perceive the imperti
nence of its remarks? unless it is prepared to give
voice and proof to the insinuation which floats like a
pestilential miasma over every Hue, real yet impalpa
ble, deadly yet intangible, that the disposition of the
ship masters to incur greater expenses in former years
stood in some undefined though embarrassing relation
to their inclination for lavish pleasures and 41 fast hor
ses." To see that journal sneer at the amusements of
the ship masters while in port, one might think that it
had dropped d ivrn blindfolded from So. 124 Nassau
street. New York, and knew no more about Honolulu
than it does about heaven.
We did not . xpe:t to find ourselves called xipm to
vindicate the business abilities and personal characters
of a class of men, who should have deserved better at
the hands of the Advertiser, had it in this, as in ho
many other instances, known a word of what it was ;
writing about. No sooner have their patronage and
special favors enabled it to sit square in its seat and
aspire to " extend the area of" printing by underbid
ding its compeer, than it kicks away the ladder by
which it mounts! and treits its former patrons as un
trusty business men and dissipated persons whom it has
required the special institution of Agents" to drill
into economical habits and tame down to the proprieties
of civilized life.
We have nor time nor space to argue the necessity of
amusements and recreations to one and all of the whal
ing fleet, from the captain to the cabin-boy. We did
not think that it required personal experience to com
prehend that fact. Six, eight, or ten months ut sea
midst snow and ice and storms imperatively demand
reaction and relaxation, and to deny or quarrel with
this demand can have but one of three results : either
to drive the whalers away from such a forbidding and
lugubrious community, or urge them on to excesses, or
make tliein precious hypocrites and eye-servants.
We would ask the Advertiser what idea the owners in
New Bedford, New London, Nantucket, etc., are likely
to iuaUc to themselves from the paragraph we have
quoted at the top of this article : How are they likely
to construe the demonstration of purses and exhibition
of fast horses ? Instead of looking upon them as edi
torial exaggerations or exceptional cases, are they not
likely to think that if such things can be confessed
against the shipmasters as a class, and under the very
ey.-s of their own agents, in a place too, whose mani
fest interest it is to bear with their extravagance and
covrr up their short comings, if any there be, then
surely the worst by far has not been told. And, in
order to avenge their misplaced confidence and protect
their interests, they will act on the Adiei liner's "vague
reports' and set the new-fangled guilloUne to work
" sending out captains via the Isthmus to supersede
those in charge'' at a rate and for causes that would
have astonished the Coffins and the Folgers, the Roteh
es, the Rodmans and the Howlands of thirty years ago.
The Advertiser's notice of " a change for the tetter'
is one of those silly little attempts to appear important
and consequential, whose very littleness saves them from
observation or- rebuke here, but which five thousand
miles away assume proportions the author little dreamt
of and grow into mischievous weather-breeders termi
nating with social storms, individual wrong, and a
' general effect" that is " unquestionably"-bad.
We have only taken up what meets the eye directly
in the aliove quotation from the Advertiser, but we have
not room this time to expose the inferences which lie
latent in every line almost, like poison 'ne.ith the ser
pent's oo:h. When next that journal feels a " dispo
sition" to meddle with the characters of other people,
it is kindly requested not to " demonstrate" the shorts
and shai'ows of its own, to improve its logic and pro
duce the figures and ficts to show that the expenses of
the general whaling fleet were unnecessarily greater in
former years, owing to the wint of " efiorts of cap
tains to reduce' them, than they have been this
The Advertiser having thus freely and, as we believe,
uncalled for, given its opinion uixm the past, present
and future transactions and character of the whaling ,
Bnipmasters as a class, we might also claim tne privi
lege of bearing witness in Court ia behalf of the tra
duced. And after nearly thirty years' personal ac
quaintance with the shipmasters as a class, we are free
to record our conviction that, with even a fewer num
ber of exceptional cases of incapacity and extravaL'nnce

to that effect so far as occasionally to incur the imputa-

with whose " length and heft " the Advertiser seems
disposed to finoV fault, were their own hard earned and
richly merited, and that the new system of agencies and
the guillotiue " via the isthmus," can not but have a
demoralising effect on the esprit du corps of ,the ship-
J roasters, snd loss of elf-rrspeet individually.
THE PAST WEEK.; v
Bloc Lawn n Rerlsed EJitien.
The community of Honolulu has jeen half amused
and half annoyed to see that the qpirit of Eyes-out
Sabbatarianism is still active in the House of Repre
sentatives. Everybody has a right to enjoy his own
opinions, but betwixt that and enforcing opinions upon
others there is a wide gulf fixed. If Mr. Chamberlain,
the member for Nawiliwiii believe in the strict ob
servance of the sabbath, he has a most perfect right to
believe in it If he prefers a cold dinner onSunday,
he has the leave of everybody to have his dinner cook
ed on Saturday, and kept in the pantry till called for.
If he dues not so much mind cooking in his own house
on Sundays, as allowing meats and vegetables to be
sold iu the market, nobody will deny him the right to
eat tainted beef, bought the day before, and vapid
vegetables to his Sunday's dinner. But if others, on
the other hand, believe that the Creator who neither
stops our appetites on the sabbath day, nor feeds us
with manna, intended us net only to eat, but to eat
wholesotue food, every day of the week, yet do not be
lieve that tainted meats are properly called wholesome,
why, my dear 6ir, iu the name of common sense and
coiuiuou parity, accord to them those privileges, or ra
ther those inalienable rights, which they leave to you.
Tiiereire many men, even iu this easy-goiug country,
who say truly that Sunday is the only day in which
they can take a little bit of comfort with their families.
After working all the week to supply the mouths that
their labor feeds, it does not seem to be asking too
much for them that they shall have one Comfortable
quiet day in seven to realize the results of their toil,
and to spread their table with such creature comforts
as cheer the heart and atrune the whole man to be
contented with that state of life into which it has pleas
ed God to call him. but leaving every more ethereal
and doctriiial consideration on one side, it becomes
a legislator to study the simple physical wellbeing of
those who invest him with power. He must not lorce
upon them the alternative of a compulsory fast, or,
what is about as bad, a table spread with fare which
has already become disfasteful to the palate and divest
ed of those qualities that counteract the process of ex
haustion aud waste which is as constantly the result of
moving and breathing, ns an expenditure of coals is the
Cost at which a blacksmith keeps his furnace gointj.
Did we live in arctic latitudes we might be able to keep

by a party at Mrs. Dominis residence which drew to

can bear, that bent its branches to the ground. After

We are glad to hear that a gentleman in Lahaina,
whose experience is more extended than that of most of
those who have tried the experiment of making wine
with a view to testing the probabilities of success, has
produced an article very much superior to any previous
specimens. We have not tasted it, but it is said to be
a pure aud pleasaut beverage so pleasant that our in
formant tell us he feels certain that were it in the mar
ket it would be used in preference to any of the wines
ordinarily imported, or rather ordinarily sold. We
further hear that the gentleman in question is so well
satisfied as to the quality of the wine he can manufac
ture that he is intending to go into the business should
he succeed in procuring a spot of land with the qualifi
cations that he desires, and that such a place is likely
10 be offered to him on very advantageous terms by
order of his Majesty, who wishes in this, as in other
movements that promise to benefit the public, to give a
proof of the interest he takes in such enterprises.
Cufchiiiji a Tartar.
On Tuesday last as Mr. A. Auld of Honolulu, hav
ing been on a visit to Kaiitii, was walking back home
a native bov on horseback overtook him on the road
and offered to give hint a ri le into town. The road
beiug very muddy and heavy by the late rains, Mr.
Auld accepted the offer and agreed to give the boy
SI 25 and let him ride behind. The parties being'
seated and under way the boy contrived to pick the
pockets tf Mr. Auld of two gold pieces (S8). Mr.
Auld beiug conscious of the robbery at the time but not
wishing to spoil his ride until he arrived in town, rode
on quite unconcerned until they came abreast of the
station house when he halted and give the by in
charge to the police. When the case came up before the
Magistrate he gave this modern Dick Turpin 60 days
hard labor for his trouble.
On Thursday night the lock-up in the rear of the
Station House was again broken open und four of the
men belonging to the whalcship Maria Theresa, im
prisoned for refusing duty, made their escape. This
time the fl.jor was sawed through and the escape effect
ed through some of the air holes of the underpinning
of the budding. One of the men has since beeu caught.
There were at. the time eight men in the cell, but four
say that they did not wish to get out iu that way.

Koyul Hawaiian Theatre.
On Saturday evening last Miss Caroline Ince took a
Benefit at the above Theatre, under the patronage of
Captain Montresor and the officers of II. B. M.s Ship
Calypso, before a crowded aud highly respectable au
dience. The piece produced was the celebrated play of
' Rob Roy," the principal characters of which were
well sustaiued by Miss Annette Ince as Flora Mclvvr,
Mr. Toke'y as Hob Rny, Mr. Wallack as Doujal, and
Mr. Beatty as Bailie Nicol Jarcie.- The latter gentle
man had a difficult character to personify, which he
sustained with great credit to himself, and which ma
terially added to the success of the piece. Mr. Wal
lack's Highland Fling was admirable, and received
This Saturday evening Mr. Tokely will take a com
plimentary benefit, on which occasion will be produced
Shakespeare's celebrated Tragedy of " Macbeth."
With such a caste of characters as Lady Macbeth by
Miss Annette Ince., Mncbtth ly Mr. ToKely, Macdujf
by Mr. Beatty, lianquo by Mr. Wallack, aud Malcolm
by Mr. Towusend, the play-going people of Honolulu
may anticipate a treat Mr. Tokely, who justly de
serves the Benefit tendered him, was the first theatrical
pioneer on the I-land, and from bis well known dra
matic abilities, we have no doubt the house will be a
very crowded one. As a proof of his determination
to have everything conducted on the above occasion in
the European and American style, he has solicited the
assistance of four gentlemen of this city, who have con
sented to act ns ushers in the boxes.
The whole of the music lor the above piece has un
dergone a thorough rehearsal, and from the vocal abil
ities of Miss Caroline luce, and the instrumental talent
of Mr. Pickering, assisted by about twenty others, we
may confidently expect a 6ucces8.
The above company performed at the Royal Hawai
ian Theatre on Thursday evening last, it being for the
Benefit of Mr. Ellis, their treasurer, but we regret to
say to rather a thin house. Mr. Pickering with his vi--.olincello
is a great addition to the company. If we may
judge from the laughter which was kept np, the au
dience mutt have been highly pleased with tbe performances.

Sheldon, Richardson and Kilanipoo.
To morrow being Thanksgiving day, the House adjourned over
TO THE EDITOR OF THE POLTXESIAN.
Sik : I hope I shall not Le supposed to be a carper
if I venture to otfer a fuw remarks upon Thanksgiving
Day. I believe I am as sensible of benefits received as
any other member of the community, but I cannot help
seeing that it is inconvenient to observe a Tlrinksgivinj
Day iu December. It is the busy time of the year
perhips I oupht to say the comparatively buy time of
the ye ir and when it is put off till near the end of the
month, it comes so nt'ar to Christmas and New Year's
Days tboth kept as holidays) that holidays stem for
the time to be ' as plentiful as blackberries." In these
remarks I have an eye particularly to the three princi
pal business ports, and so far as they are concerned I
must say that if their population could be brought into
a thankful frame of mind a month or so later, the rear
having'then really expired and time been allowed to
take a general review r.f it. it might perhaps have all
the effect aimed at, and by not interfering with what
little business there is stirring alout this time, it might
be more generally observed I confess that as a holiday
for the younger portion of those engaged iu business
the time now usually chosen by his Majesty in Council
could not be improved on, for a holiday iuvolves the
idea of a cessation of business, and this being about the
only time when there is a little business to cease from,
or leave undone, it is evident that this is the only time
when our young devo-ces to commerce could realize the
idea of a holiday ;wr excellence ; seeingthat nine months
of the year are to the greater part of them a holiday
in ertenso. During that period (commonly aud appro
priately styled the "dud season") they comprehend
the full meaning of the poet's lines (if they ever read
them) where he says
" The calms of life without the storms,
Were like a stagnant pool ;
One lotifr and listless holiday,
Kobbed of its jest the school."
And I really believe that a busy day somewhere along
inJnlyor August would he a real treat to them a
hohJay upon a reversed principle. In fact the only
way to make them enjoy the dull months, by contrast,
is to keep them going during the buy ones.
One more retaar.i and I will have done. At this
time of the year the merchants and store-keepers and
business men generally are busy with their account
books, striking balances, preparing accounts current,
sending out bills, and doing every thing else that be
longs to the season. Some of them might wLih to ob
serve a day so respectably recommenced to their notice,
but it may not be in their power to do so, and so there
is a reason why the day cannot be generally kept
towards the end of December.
I will subscribe myself with respect,
From Our Own Correspondent.
District of Kac, Island of Hawaii,
SOMEWHEEE IN THE VICINiTT OP THeVoLCAXO
Deo'r 21, 13G3,
TO HIS EDITOR OF TBE POLT.VESIAX.
&V; It is rarely, owing to the infrequency of the
Mail, caused by the depth of the gulches and the inde
pendence of the Mule lioys, who sometimes stop tin the
road and light their pipes with the newypapers they
carry (or rather that is the only way I can account for
it), that we get your valuable sheet and the Pacific
Com. Advertiser together. A week since, however, it
happened through the instrumentality of an overruling
Providence, tot budget came safe, and as I have always
been accustomed from childhood to 'take the papers,"
and irAen I get them read them, I sat myself down on
the verdant hills of Hawaii, with the cool breeze blowing
on my back from the snow-crowned summit of Manna
Loa, and perused their pages. Having, by dint of
strict economy, a habit inculcated in me from earliest
youth by an honest 2sew England mother, saved from
roy slender earnings a small sum, which since I have
been. up here I have, about the month of .November,
man.iged to have paid in Honolulu for investment in a
whaler's bill at a premium cf 10al5 per cent for my
dollars, for remittance to my respected parents, I natu
rally at this time sought the quotation of Exchange, to
learn how much my last $200 had realized, when, to
iay horror and astonishment, I fuund whalers' bills at a
premium, or about to be, and a threat to export specie
if they continued so. Now don't I wish I had that 300
back to invest in goat skins, hides, fungus, coffee, or
even pulu, notwithstanding the fluctuations of the San
Francisco market. I might even put it into sugir, but
I was alwaj's opposed to Joint Stock Companies where
I could not be President, Secretary, Treasurer, and the
whole board of Directors, and a long $300 in a sugar
plantation wouldn't stand much chance. As in all
probability my $300 has gone to myjarents in a whal
er's bill at the best market rate of tne day. for my in
structions were positive to invest at the best rate, on
the arrival of the Ochotsk fleet, in a good whaler's bill,
from the right parties, they wi'l only realiie S 2i7 C3
iu Boston, les i per cent f .?r out of town collection in
New Bedford, Nantucket or New London.
I've set myself to thinking how this awful result to
my slender finances has come about, and after mature
deliberation I have come to the conclusion, your Mer
chants in Honolulu and Lahaina. like those in New
York and Hamburg last year, have got tht terrible
"balance of trade" on the wrong side of their ledgers
that they are owing moie in the United States and
Great Britain than they can find safe channel of rcniit
tnce for. The "big bugs" among traders must keep
their heads above water, if the little bugs' do gr to
the wall. Such a thing as exporting specie ! Why,
when I was a clerk iu Wall St.. New York, about '27,
when the crash of that year took place, the bare men
tion of such a thing, even then, would have made
"Koine howl and Syracuse shake in its boots." I mean
the cities of Rome and Syracuse in the State of New
York. Yes, Mr. Editor ; I think you must have been
.Qjver-importingin Honolulu and Lahaina, and the recoil
reminds me of what a Yankee said of his gun to Lt.
Gen. Winfield Scott. U. S. Army. This Yankee had a
gun which would revolve sixty times in a minute, throw
ing from the mu2?le each revolution a 24 pound shot.
Ho was praising iH power to the General with consid
erable volubility of discourse, when the General inter
rupted him by saying, " that the recoil of such a gun
must lie tremendous." "Ah, General," said he; "that's
just where I've got you, fur the beauty of this 'ere gun
is, that the rtkiie, if anything, is a letlle fonard."
I think next year, before I remit to Honolulu for ben
efit of Exchange, I shall study carefully the imports of
the past year, or else make up my mind to deposit my
dollars in the Mother Bank, old Mrs. Terra. . She al
ways discounts liberally and makes good dividends. I
notice a suggestion in the " Commercial Advertiser,"
to put Dimes into circulation, or force them into circu
lation, by refusing to take the "realplata" Spanish
for more than 10c. What a blessing that would be tol
the Postmaster General. The franc pieces of wil
then go for only two dimes, and the dollars U. S. cur
rency, be worth a five fane piece and half a dime.
Happy day for Hawaii when drinks of good French
brandy fall to a dime, and Boston iee 3c. per pound.
Nothing new up here in our District. Mauna Kea
and Mauna Loa stand exactly where they did whCn
Capt. James Cook discovered the islands in 17 and (I
have not got ray Dictionary of Daii by me) both of
them, however, at present look a little older from their
heads being so white. The Volcano has suspended op
erations for the present. Like a bankrupt, its internal
affairs are in state of liquidation.
Yours truly. QUILL.

50 As the Fall shipping season for 1853 may now be consid
ered closed, as far as regards any further arrivals at these
Islands, it may be well, perhaps, to sum u , in a few intelligible
figures, the season's work, from our Whalemen's List and Ma
rine Journal we compile the following:
The above gives us as the average for the season's work
amongst those that have arrived here (excepting the six purely
sperm whalers from Japan), of 606,' barrel wbale oil, and 8,150
lbs bone per ship ; a little lower than that computed by the -47-
tej'fiWr, but we have reason to believe correcter. From the
different fishing grounds the average stands thus : from Ochotsk
t73 bbls ; from Arctic .''3d bbls; Trout Kodiak 516 bbls.
Last year the season's cairn was, exclusive of sperm, 124.4'vi
bbls, but there having been 53 siiijis less engaged in the fishing, the
general average was greater. Hy referring to th above figures
it will be seen that so far from a decrease in the amount caught,
there is a positive inertose. over last year.
We compile partly from the Adcrti-'r, but corrected by us.
the following table of the amount of Oil and Bone ta.-n on tbe
X. P. whaling grounds during the summer seasons of the follow
ing years, and brought into port at the Hawaiian Islands :

FortT-fonr vessels have left these Islands for home this sea

As our figures do not demonstrate a "tcrrtse" in the quan
tity of oil caurht this season, below that of last year, we do not
understand the dreams of the Adreriiner abnt "the influence
on the price of oil in America and Europe" which is predicted as
a "certain" consequence of a fact that has no existence, an effect
without a cause. .
Th Fessiiiork CoorML On Wednesday last the Am. Surrey
inrf Schooner F nnlmore Coor, Commander Brooke, left for a
cruise among and to northwest of the Islands. We understand
that, if the weather is in any manner favorable, she will make a
complete let of soundings between and around the Islands.
We hope that another edition of Lt. Maury's "Geography of the
Sea" will be enriched by the observations of .so able a collabora
tor as Commander Brooke. The schooner U expected back in
three or fear weeks.
