term' of reualtiy, intitiwrtf and lartmmy enjoying each other1
etmKifncf embittered by no foolish frt)wiio or dixtiHclum.
T ,i may be traceable mainly la the sincere and honest conduct,
die correct example of that band of men and women, our father!
a id mother, who considered the Hawaiian! their brethren, cl.il
u en of one common Father, heir! of the aame hn mortality.
We could only wish that as tho Hawaiian and
the missionaries are co-heirs, the former had been
allowed to learn the language of the latter, if it
were only fur the sake of talking over the prospects
liich they enjoy in common. And this brings us
to I lie point. At tho annual meeting had on the
2ith May, 1600. "interesting remarks were made
bv Fathers Thurston, Coan, Armstrong, Andrews,
Gn'ick and Baldwin;" su they mugt have been
there, but how many more of the seniors were on
the spot we do not know. Well, the Report of the
Recording Secretary (already quoted from) was
then read, and in it are to be found these remark
At the first regular meeting of the past year. Hie following
resolutions, ui.-e9trd hy one of the Father, at their last annual
tuttU.f. were proposed :
I. ' if rrtob , That it is the duty of each member of this
go.-ictT 10 learn the Hawaiian language.
" i .Vurf, That it be considered the duty of every member
of this Sx-'icty to endeavor to instruct one or more of the kanaka
The first of these was unanimously adopted bj the Society.
T'e second was lost.
Now, we are neither over fastidious nor hyper
critical, but we dislike that expression " kanaka
children." In thehrstplnce.it is a vulgarism ;
ia the second place it will not bear the test of
etymology, and in the third place it conveys to the
oiind an idea of superciliousness, as if the speaker
w ere looking down upon those to whom he alluded,
and regarding them in anything but the light in
which the " fathers and mothers" of the missiona
ry family are said to have looked upon the Ha
waiian race aa "their brethren." It does not, in
one word, recommend itself as being in keeping
with the " equality," " intimacy" and " harmony,"
and that absence of foolish prejudices or distinc
tions" which look so well in the President's Re
port. But the feature of the second extract which is
really worthy of comment, is that it lets us into a
very curious fact as to the present policy of the
missionary body. It was resolved to be the duty
of each member of the Society to leant the Ha
waiian language. Now seeing that they were
born here and dandled in the arms of Hawaiian
nurses, and served ever since by Hawaiian domes
tics; that in all their ordinary out-of-dour occupa
tions they must have had fully as much to do with
Uawaiians as with people speaking the English
tougue, whilst their fathers preached and taught
in the language of the country it certainly does
soein very strange that they should not have learnt
it before. Other children pick it uu readily
enough, some parents say too readily. From what
force of suppression, then, or through what inter
diction does it happen that the children of the
missionaries have now to acquire artificially what
other children have taken in the natural way?
The answer will rise to every one's lips. The Ha
waiian language was considered so impure that
they were studiously kept from having any knowl
edge of it. But now, every member of the Society
in question is to learn it, from the little Abhies
and Maggies and Hatties and Uettys, that arejust
beginning lo toddle, up to the young men who are
already at Oahu College. There must be some
change in the wind or some prognostical cloud to
account for this tack, for certainly there is no
change for better in the language. Is it that they
are taken with a desire to fit themselves for the
ministry and for teachers of schools, or for appoint
ments under Government, or is it'a simple act of
perverseness, that while the English language is
being called for at all hands, they are overcome
with this sadden zeal for the once proscribed ver
nacular? For this unexpected movement there
may be some occult reason which does not appear
upon the face of things, but it ought to be a very
good reason indeed to justify that pollution of
thought which it has been said the young mind
must necessarily acquire with the native language,
and that too at a time when the natie language
from the very nature of thing and from the efforts
which the Government is at last makinjj to dis
seminate, and substitute for it the English lan
guage, is becoming every day of less importance
and even a matter of less convenience in the every
day transactions of life.
But there was another proposition made at the
same time which must recommend itself to the
common eerue of every practical mind, and which
if adopted would have done honor to the Society.
It was to this effect, as may be 6een above : " That
it be considered the duty of every member of this
Society to endeavor to instruct one or more of the
kanaka children." Now, if it had appeared that
the children of the missionaries were to be allowed
to learn the Hawaiian language with a view to
imparling to soma of the little nttives such in
struction as even that lanzutgc ill convey, we
could have seen some justification, and argument
in favor, of the first resolution. But although that
resolution was 44 unanimously adopted," the pro
position to teach 44 was lost." So here we are
again, all out at aea, without any harbor into
which we may run for a solution of the puzzle.
Forourpart we would rather see a young Hawaiian
taken in hand by a missionary child who knew
nothing of his pupil's own language. The course
of instruction would then begin at the real begin
ning, and the child having mastered in his tender
vears ihat lanuare which is a key to all knowl
edge, whilst it is more generally used than any of
what are called the civilized tongues, would nave
been prepared for any finish of which his mental
faculties were capable, and provided with the
means of making himself understood in almost
every part-of the world. But the idea of instruc
tion, whether through this medium or that, was
thrown overboard, and the native children are not
to learn of the children of those who taught their
fathers. And so the matter rests, and all that can
be nude out of it is, that there is a counter plan on
foot fo perpetuate the use of the Hawaiian lan
gua?e, by making it less imperative on the native
youth to learn the English, for as the children of
the missionaries, already a numerous body and
every year increasing, are likely to 6pend the
greater portion of their days here, so far, at all
events, as they are concerned, the native children
will not be altogether incapable of communicating
with them if they do know no language but that
rude one of their forefathers.
If the annual meetings of the Society had been
attended only by the children, we should not
have mndethe foregoing remarks, but, as we have
shown above, several, if not many, of their fathers
were present, and the resolutions in question were
suggested by one of those fathers. The move
ment must therefore be looked upon as part of the
policy of tho body in general. We are. sorry for
it. By those who were not altogether prepossessed
in favor of the system pursued by the missionaries,
it has been said from time to time that they favor
ed the continued use of the Hawaiian language,
a means of retaining influence in their own
hands, they being better and more generally ac
quainted with it than other persons of foreign birth.
We wish we could discover anything in the two
resolutions in question that would give us the op- j
porlunity to refute that insinuation . j
The R. V. Wood.
Thia fine packet bark, which arrived here on Saturday
last, was built at Oldenberg to the order of H. Hack,
feld & Co., and named after one of our old and influen
tial residents, Dr. R. W. Wood. Her keel and most of
her frame was originally designed for another vessel,
but haviug the advantage of eighteen months seasoning,
she was purchased on the stocks and entrusted to the
hands of Johann Ahlers, a famous builder on theAi'eser.
To his son, a recent graduate of the Polytechnic
Institute at Rochefort, France, was detailed the care of
remodeling and drafting her, and the manner in which
he has done it is evident to every admirer of naval
architecture. To seafaring people, or those who take
an interest in ships or maritime affairs generally, the
following dimensions of this beautiful vessel may not
be uninteresting : Length of keel, 127 feet (German) ;
length over all. 133 do.; extreme breadth of beam, 27
do.; depth of hold, 11 1-2 do.; height of mainmast
above deck, G do.; foremast. 33 do.; mizzenmast, 3G
do.; bowsprit, 13 do.; jibUooo, 21 do.; from main
deck to main-royal truck, 107 do. There are eight
state-rooms, fitted with two berths each, and also room
for two more, and forms contrived so as to be easily con
verted into berths on an emergency. She is built of
German oak, in the most thorough and workmanlike
manner, and copper fastened throughout. Our limits
prevent us saying any more at present, but we advise
those who like to see a fine ship and a good sailer to
give the R. IK Wood a call.

II R. II. Prince Knuiebnuirha.
We know that it will afford our readers as much
pleasure to learn, as it rives us to inform them, that
II. It. II., Frince Kanwhameha. has now so far re
covered from his late severe 6ickness as to be able to
take some gentle exercise on horseback during the
morning hours. We leatn further that, upon the
advice of the physicians, the Prince has concluded
t try a trip to Victoria, V. I., perhaps California,
and the effects of a sea voyage and change of cli
mate, in order fully to re-establish his health.
That the prayers and best wishes of every inhab
itant of this land go with him, we need not assure
him, and that the kindliest reception awaits him
across the pond, we are equally certain. The l'rince
takes passage on board the clipper schooner Emma

The Hon. Geo. M. Robertson, Meruler of the King's
Privy Council of State, returned on the 13th instant
from Vancouver's Island and Puget Sound, and has
resumed his official duties as Associate Judge of the
Supreme Court, reinvigorated in health.
He was received at Victoria by his Excellency Gov
ernor Douglas. Chief Justice Cameron and others, with
the most distinguished respect, which, while extremely
gratifying to him personally, marked the high regard
entertained by the Government of British Columbia for
the Sovereign of the Hawaiian Kingdom.
And such was ever the rule of all the high officers
and agents of the Hon. Hudson's B iy Co., the with

A New English School.
By an advertisement in another column it will be
seen that Mr. D. Walsh will commence an English
School, on the premises belonging to the Catholi
Mission, in Hotel street, between Nuuanu and Smith
streets. Mr. Walsh comes well recommended, hav
ing for many years kept a mixed school in New
Zealand, and we cordially recommend him to those

. Cluge aad Insororemeals- '
During the past week Messrs. C. Brewer & Co.
have completed their alterations in the makai end of
the Market House recently vacated by Mr. James
L Dowaett knocked down the partition formerly
dividing the two portions of the lower part, and
thrown the whole length of the building open as a
store-house, making one of the largest, most com
modious and convenient business places in town.
By a notice in our advertising columns it will be
seen that W. A. Aldrich, Esq., has, after some
slight alterations and repairs, removed his business
from Makee'a block into those well-known premises
so long occupied by the Hon. Hudson's Bay Co., and
only now become vacant by the changes in their
business relations ; some account of which we gave
our readers in a previous number.
A framed building, 40 by 25 feet, to be occupied
jointly as a butcher shop by Copt. John Meek and
Mr. S. H. Dowsett, is being erected at the lower
corner of Nuuanu and Queen Streets. It will, when
completed, be a substantial and commodious pro
vision mart, partly filling up that lar;e, open space
on, and more clearly defining the southern side of the
last mentioned street, in that vicinity, especially as
we understand that the two small shops are to be
removed, leaving Nuuanu street clear to the water.
Messrs. Janion, Green & Co. have had built on
their large lot, corner of Queen and Fort Streets,
and immediately adjoining the stone building of
Messrs. J. Robinson & Co., a store house 60 by 26
feet and also a stable.
There are a number of other changes in contem
plation, which we will mention as they occur.
Ours are due to Messrs. Monsarrat & Almon, J.
Steward, and Capt Moore of the Jenny Ford, for late
papers from Victoria and Port Townsend ; as also. to
Messrs. McRuer & Merrill, Chas. Wolcott Brooks &
Co., and Capt. Morse of the Polynesia, for late news
from San Francisco, per that clipper.
TO THE EDITOE OF THE POLYNESIAN.
Sin : The following is a f;dr translation of a para
graph in a slip issued by the Editor of the Hue Ha
waii, on Thursday last, as a " stopper" on the Pros
titution Act :
Remember that man ia weak, and cannot of
himself remove the ills that come upon him. There
fore you.should look to Heaven for aid, as did the
people of Hilo, in the time of their trouble. Hilo
was saved, and why should not the people of this
nation be saved."
The Rev. Mr. Coan argued that the lava flow from
Mauna Loa, which at one time threatened to destroy
Hilo, was stopped by the prayers of the righteous
in that district. Here we have the same doctrine
put forward by the Clerk of the Board of Education
(Editor of the llae) as a reason why we should pur
sue a course of masterly inactivity" in regard to
the great evil of prostitution. Cromwell's advice
to his soldiers was " Put your trust in God, and
keep your powder dry" our modern would-be-Crom-wells
tell us to mind the first part of the advice,
and let the powder Fizz.
By tho arrival, on the IGth, of the clipper ship
Polynesia, Capt. Morse, from San Francisco, en route
for Baker's Island, we are placed in possession of
dates to the 3d of August, from that place, and four
days later news from the East per Pony Express to
Carson City. As the Polynesia wns coming out of
the bay on the evening of the 3d she met the moil
steamer from Panama going in. Probably we shall
not receive her mails until the arrival of the Frances
Palmer, which vessel made a very quick passage
over (14 days) from here, arriving at San Francisco
on the 1st. She is probably on her return passage
by this time, and may be expected all the latter
part of this month. From our exchanges we glean
the following items :
The U. S. sloop-of-war Cyane was at Mazatlan
July 7. H. B. M.'s ship Cyclops was at the Society
Islands June 23, soon to sail for Valparaiso.
The schooner Wamp was reported at Cape St.
Lucas about the middle of July. This is probably
the same vessel which brought the natives from
some of the southern islands to Kauai, six or seven
months ago, and last reported by Capt. Keyte of
the schooner Marilda, as committing sundry depre
dations south, carrying off the property of the
Guano Company at Christmas Island, &c, and
winding up by stealing a lot of natives from Hum
phreys' and Rierson's Islauds, and leaving for parts

The acquiescence of all the Powers in the proposed
conference was considered certain, and it will be held
in Paris during the month of October. The Powers
will be represented by their Ambassadors.
Fkom Italy. Nothing was further known as to Ga
ribaldi's movements against Messina. There were re
ports of fighting near Messina, but they lacked confirma
tion. The proclamation of a new Constitution was received
with indifference at Naples.
The royal forces for the defence of Messina were com
puted at 20,000 men.

sick, in consequence of vexation at the refusal of Na

The New Ministbt. The new Neapolitan Ministry

under date of the 27th June, publishes an article which
is looked upon as a reply to the confidential letters of
the King of Naples The article says that the victor
ious national movement of Sicily cannot be repressed
in the present circumstances ; that the King of Naples
has made his own destiny, and that the new Italian
kingdom cannot change its policy by protecting a throne
which is an obstacle to the unity of Italy.
The Expeditions to Sicily. The Government of
Sardinia continues to openly favor the expedition of vol
unteers going to assist Garibaldi. There were 10,000
troops in Genoa on the 2Sth June ready to start They
were under the leadership of students and some ex-officers
of the Sardinian army, who have resigned to j in
Garibaldi. Arms and ammunition appear as by en
chantment, when needed by Garibaldi. It is said that
they come from the Sardinian arsenals ; but this is an
assertion not proved.
Sicily. On the 26th June, by order of the Neapol
itan Government the tricolored Italian flag, the banner
of a United and Constitutional Italy, was hoisted ou
tbe fort of St Elmo, and saluted by all the artillery of
the fortifications about the city.
The King and his Ministers are very anx:.ous to give

because of the concessions made and provided by the
