can suffer. War is an ugly thing, but not the
ugliest of things : the decayed and degraded state
of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks nothing
worth a war, is worse. When a people are used as
mere human instruments for firing cannon or
thrusting bayonets, in the service and for the selfish
purposes of a master, such war degrades a people.
A war to protect other human beings against ty
rannical injustice ; a war to give victory to their
own ideas of right and good, and which is their
own war, carried on &r an honest purpose by their
free choice is often the means of their regenera
tion. A man who has nothing which be is willing
to fight for, nothing which he cares more about
than he does about his personal safety, is a mise
rable ereatare who has no chance of being free,
unless made and kept so by the exertions of better
men than himself. As long as justice and Injustice
have not terminated their ever renewing fight for
ascendancy in the affairs of mankind, huruun
being must be willing, when need is. to do battle
for the one against the other. I am far from say
ing that the present struggle, on the part of the
'Northern Americans, is wholly ot this exalted
character ; that it has arrived at the stage of bf ing
altogether a war for justice, a war of principle.
But there was from the beginning, and now is, a
large infusion of that element in it; and this is
increasing, will increase, and if the war lasts, will
in the end predominate. Should that time come,
not only will the greatest enormity which still ex
ists among mankind as un institution, receive far
earlier its coup de grace than there has ever, until
now, appeared any probability of; but in effecting
this the Free States will hav9 raised themselves to
that elevated position in the scale of morality and
dignity, which is derived from great sacrifices con
sciously made in a virtuous cause, and tho senaeof
an inestimable benefit to all future ages, brought
about by their own voluntary efforts.
SATURDAY. JUNE 23. 1662.
FOREIGN NEWS !
By the arrival, yesterday, of the schooner Fanny,
Cspt. Turner, in 17 days from S.-in Francisco, we have
received Atlantic American news (telegraphic) to June
7, European do. to May 29, and San Francisco dailies
to June 9. The news are highly important.
In the Shenandoah Valley, of Virginia, a succession
of reverses and successes had attended the belligerents
in turn. First, the Rebel General Jackson swept down
the valley, gaining a brilliant victory at Front Ryal,
and driving General Danks before him, who was greatly
inferior in forces ; but Banks having received a re
inforcement of 18,000 men from Washington, turned
the tables on Jackson, who, at last accounts, was in his
turn, retreating up the valley, and was probably cut
off from communication with Richmond.
Before Richmond a severe and bloody engagement
between portions of McClellan's army and the rebels
bad taken place on the 31st of May and the 1st of Jane.
Similar to the Pittsburg Landing battle, the rebels were
successful on the first day, but were driven back with
great loss on the (second. The latest account of the
battle gives the loss on the Federal side as 7,000, and
on the rebel side as 1 0,000. From the 1st to the 6th
of June no further advance on the Federal side in the
direct line of Richmond, but the attention of McClellan
was directed to cutting off the Southern exit from
Richmond by the way of Petersburg. Richmond was
being evacuated of citizens and stores, but the army
was fully resolved to hold its ground and try another
battle with McClellan.
Beauregard had evacuated Corinth, May 29, and
gone Southward. In his retreat he had lost from 7,000
to 10. COO men, who were cut off and captured by Gen.
Pope. Where Beauregard intends to bring up was not
positively known, but he was thought to have still over
80,000 men with him.
Fort Wright was evacuated June 4, and the Federal
flotilla moved down the river. Rumors up to the 6th
aay that the fleet had passed Fort Randolph and that
Memphis bad surrendered, but no postive information
as yet. The Federal gunboat flotilla from below, (New
Orleans), had not yet, June 5, passed Vioksburg, and
probably would have some trouble in passing.
It was reported that Commodore Dupont and Gen
eral Hunter were investing Charleston, S. C, baring
effected a lodgment at Stono Inlet.

Tahiti. It is interesting as well as instructive,
to notice the progress that is going on at the Society
Islands, and the care and attention bestowed by the
Protectorate Government on all those questions tending
to preserve the national life of that people and their so
cial and domestic advancement. From regular files of
the Messager de Taiti, we are enabled to keep somewhat
au courant with the steps taken from time to time to
develop agriculture, to protect industry, encourage
commerce, and elevate the common people in the social
scale. With all possible respect for the measures and
course of legislation, to the same end, pursued for so
many years by our own Government and successive
Legislatures, there are not a few things in which we
might profitably take a lesson from Tahiti, in adapting
those measures to the condition and capacity of the
people as it is, and not as we imagine it to be, nor as
we wish it to be.
As His Majesty the King, in his Speech to the Legis
lature, as the Minister of the Interior, in his Report,
have dwelt opon the necessity and piopriety of en
couraging the agriculture of these inlands, by premiums
and rewards ; and as hitherto the Legislature has not
apparently had time or disposition to attend to three
suggestions, it may not be amiss to know that tha1
principle has for some time been establish d and acted
upon in Tahiti, and with very good results. On the
15th of December last, the Tahiti.m Government issued
the following schedule of premiums :
50 centime each coffee tree, fur the Brit 40,000 trees planted.
430 fr. per hectare of cacao tree, for the tint 10 hectare's
100 fr. per hectare of cotton, for the first 20 hectares.
450 fr. per hect. of sugar cane, for the first 20 hectare.
100 fr. per hect. of grasses, for the first 10 hectares.
1(H) fr. per hect. of cocoanut trees, for the first 10 hectares.
350 fr. per 1,000 kilogr. of dried tobacco, for the 2,000 first
4 prises of 2,500 fr. each, payable in 5 annuities of 500 francs,
for herds of 30 head of cattle, hogs or sheep, properly herded in
fenced pastures or valleys.
250 fr. for 1,000 kilogr. of cotton, for the 8,000 first kilo
10 fr. per kilogr. of dry and merchantable vanilla, In quanti
ties of 10 kilogrammes at least, for the first 200 kilogrammes ex
ported. Among other things we notice that fencing and its
corrollary, trespassing of animals the eternal sore of
the hu.dindman in this country, and the bane of his
industry has received the special attention of the
Tahitian Government. Village is obliged to fence in
against village, individuals against individuals, and
the trespass law is more strict and expressive than it is

On notice of the death of the Prince Consort of the
Queen of England, communicated to the authorities by
the English Consul, G. C. Miller, Esq., the National

In the Messager of the 12th January, we see re-published
in French and English, the neutrality proclama
tion of Kamehameha IV., touching the civil war in the
United States. We look upon and appreciate the re
publication of that document in the official jcurnal of
Tahiti as an act of courtesy toward this Government by
the Imperial Commissioner, M. de la Richerie, whose
attention to, and interest in, the prosperity of this
country, is undoubted .and highly flattering.
How little do they see what is, who frame
Their hasty judgment upon that which eem$."
The Advertiser, in its capacity of a journalist, com
ments upon the eelehration of Corpus Christt day by
the Catholics in Honolulu, on the 19th inst., saying
that it was observed with considerable show," and
' partook very much of a theatrical exhibition." It
may have been so, especially to so superficial an ob
server as the Advertiser, yet common courtesy, if not
Christian kindness, might have suggested the with
holding of that public sneer, unless the observer looked
within the hearts of that kneeling multitude and saw
an insincerity in the devotion they professed.
The above journal further says : " These processions,
we are informed, are not customary in public except in
countries whose governments are Catholic." We doubt
the correctness of the information ; but grant it so,
are we to underst and that this Government is profess
edly Protestant or of any other anti-Catholic stripe?
If so, the sooner it drops the sectarian robe, the better
it will be able to maintain the constitutional principle
of religious liberty which it professes : but we know
that the Advertiser is as unjust in its insinuation, as it
is superficial in its conclusion.
Returning to first Principles. We
notice with considerable satisfaction that the Legislature
is recognizing the propriety and principle that office
holders under the Hawaiiau Government ouht to be
conversant with the Hawaiian language. The House
of Representatives added such a qualification to the
Attorney-General bill, and we understand that the
Minister of Finance has introduced a bill in the House
of Nobles, prescribing that, from and after two years
after the passage of said bill, no officer" shall be ap
pointed under this Government who is not com( etent
to read and write and converse intelligently in the Ha
waiian language. It seems to us a little singular, to
say the least, that this principle has been so long ig
nored in the administration of this Government. At
any rate, and most assnredly, should it be imperative
that those incumbents, whose offices bring them in con
stant and daily contact with the people, should be fa
miliar with the language of the people.
Launch of the Steamer "Annie
Laurie." On Wednesday hist, at 3 o'clock, this
beautiful little steamer was launched from the ship
yard of Messrs. Foster & Co., north of the old CustomJ
House. She is the property of W. L. Green, Esq., and
the ceremony of giving the name was performed by
Miss McKibbin. The vessel is about 80 tons ; was re
built by Messrs. Foster & Co. ; is a screw propeller,
and has her entire engines and machinery made at the
Honolulu Iron Works by Mr. T. Hughes. She is a
credit to the builder and machinist, a proof of Hono
lulu independence in mechanical matters, an assurance
of the continuance of inter-island communication by
steam, a subject of pride to her owner, aad another
evidence that the country is neither standing still nor
retrograding. Her machinery will soon be completed
and the Annie Laurie take her place among the insti
tutions of the country. With the Kilauea, or another
like her, and the Annie Laurie, we shall be well pre
pared to properly second the trans-Pacifio steam enter
prise now preparing in the United States or England.
For Laha in a. Understanding that the steam
er Kilauea is to be laid up for the next week, the own
ers of the well-known and excellent schooner Kekau
luohi will dispatch her for Lahaina, Maui, and Konu,
Hawaii, this afternoon, so as to convey the late mails
and the passengers bound to the windward porta of the
islands. When we say the Kehiuluohi, not another
word is needed in the way of recommendation of her as
a first class coasting vessel.
Acknowledgments. Ours are gratefully
tendered to Messrs. McRuer & Merrill, C W. Brooks

Volunteer Compsinies. We notice with
considerable interest, the increasing attention and adap
ted ness which the native Hawaiians evince for volun
teer military organizations. Though it is not over a
year since they first began, there are already three com
panies in Honolulu, one in Lahaina, one in Hilo, and
ooe, we learn, will soon be organized in Kona, Hawaii
Setting aside the physical advantages of such exercises
and, in view of that fact alone, and its bearing upou
the sanitary condition of the people, it is worthy of the
greatest consideration the benefits, in a moral and
sootal point of view, are not less striking and commen
dable. Such organizations tend surely and forcibly to
stimulate the self-respect of the individual member,
and to create that espirit de corps that makes men Work
together for a common object, and submits their con
duct to a tribunal of the public opinion of those, whose
collective frown fixes dishonor on the offender, whose
approbation is followed by promotion and encourage
ment in the conduct which led to it.
The drill and exercises of the companies which we
have witnessed, show a very marked progress in so
short a time, and a decided facility for learning. The
men feel a laudable pride in their organizations, and
the emulation between them is working well. All that
the foot-companies require is steady practice in the
field as well aa in the drill-room, and practice together
with each other and with the Regulars. But while
the individual drill of the riders in the Cavalry Corps
is perfecting itself admirably, and mar.y a full-fledged
dragoon would feel a tightening round the heart if op
posed to one of them, yet, beyond a doubt, they are
mounted on most miserable horses. The old saying
of " half a horse and half an alligator," is well known,
but, though we are willing to admit the alligator, we
look in vain for anything of the horse, except his sem
blance. A Cavalry Corps, without a riding school for
the training of the horses, as well as of the men, seems
to us like a military anachronism. We hope therefore
that some measures will be taken to procure such an
establishment, and, should private enterprise f ill short
in the meaus, we think it legitimate for the Govern
ment to come to its assistance. As long s, for the
want of proper and scientific training, the rider cannot
rdy upun hishorse performing its part of an evolution
with steadiness and accuracy, he will always be at the
mercy of the animal, no matter if individually he were
as brave as Murat. The Hawaiians are active, supple,
quick -eyed and fearless riders, and it Ht-ems to us a pity
and a great drawback that such excellent qualities
should be neutralized by the lider being obliged to be
stow more of his attention on his beast than on his
Fire. Last evening the alarm of fire was given
a little after 10 o'clock in the evening. It was soon
found to proceed from the burning of a couple of
thatched houses up the Nuuanu road, a little above
Mr. Wond's residence, belonging to a Hawaiian
named Kilauea. The Fire Companies were imme
diately in motion the " Hawaiian No. 4" leading
the van. Owing to the inflammable nature of the
houses, little assistance could be rendered, and they
were burnt to the ground. If there is anything that
Honolulu can take a justly deserved pride in, it is
its Fire Department, and the promptitude and ac
tivity which characterize it. Long may it wave, and
never be needed !
r7- Our contemporary is not well pleased, it seems,
with the programme of races got up by the residents
of Honolulu for the celebration of the Fourth of July
next, and says : If this is the best celebration Am
ericans in Honolulu can produce on their country's
birth-day, we may as well hang down our heads,
and allow the dny to pass by in silence." As a most
numerous and respectable portion of the residents of
Honolulu, irrespective of their birth-places, have
joined together to make a holiday of the Fourth of
July in Honolulu, our contemporary will probably
not be much missed, should it prefer to abset.t itself.
We cannot see, however, what cause a Hawaiian
subjg could have to hang down its head" on
account of what the Americans in Honolulu" may
do or not do on the 4th of July.

HOUSE OP NOBLES.
Monday and Tuesday the House had no business be
fore it; adj 'Urned.
Jpke 2oth. The bill for an act to provide an "At
torney General" in place of Uistrict Attorneys," was
received from the lower House. It provides th it this
officer shall be acquainted with both the English and
Hawaiian languages, is commissioned for two years, and
generally is charged with the duties now performed by
the several District Attorneys, iu which he may have
the aid of deputies, appointed by himself, and for whom
he is responsible.
Having passed to its second reading, Mr. Wyllie Raid
that it was a bill of important character, demanding
close and skillful exmiintion, and he moved that it be
referred to a committee consisting of the Prince Kame
hameha and Mr. Gregg referred accordingly.
The Prince gave notice of intention presently to in
troduce sundry bills.
Jcke 26. Mr. llaalelea, from committee on Mr
Wyllie's bills to suppress prostitution by a pa-sport sys
tem and to divide the kingdom into parishes, that while
they approved the objects of the bills, and hoped tbey
would be pursued by the House, they yet did not con
sider thesf bills expedient or constitutional.
The Prince Kamehameha re;orted on the Attorney
General bill in favor of its passage. Report received.
Mr. Bishop moved to strike out the provision that
this officer should understand English and Hawaiian.
He Said that it must be admitted that there was at pre
sent no native lawyer qualified by hU learning to hold
this responsible office. The incumbent must be a for
eigner, and it might be unavoidable to appoint one who
had not this qualification He would not have the dis
crimination made against this single office. He might
f.ivor a general provision applying to all officers of gov
ernment, requiring in them a knowledge of Hawaiian
after a o- rtain time.
Mr. li said he thought the native language was one
easily acquired, and he thought this law would be an
incentive to it. The new dictionary would be a great
aid to foreigners, and he thought they bad a disposi
tion to acquire it.
Mr. Wyllie said that while he knew that the only
Attorney General we had ever had, the l ite John Ki
cord, had served in that office with distinguished abili
ty and successy having everything carefully inter
preted or translated for him, he could not vote tot Mr.
Gov. Nahaolelua said, that now for the first time and
y this Legislature was the Hawaiian language taken
up and recognized as a necessary qualification in gov
ernment officers. He admitted that provision of the
Mr. Bishop said he fully recognized the propriety of
snch a requirement, but would have it provisional for
th- future say nfler two years hence.
Mr. Greg said that its provisions were not in every
respect satisfactory, especially this under consideration
and that which limits the tenure of commission to two
years ; yet upon the whole he was in favor of it, and
was iuclined to t ike it as it is and avoid the risk of
amendments which will send it down to the other office.
Furthermore, he intended to introduce a bill for a law
providing that in two years from date no one shall be
appointed to office in this kingdom who cannot read,
write and converse in the Hawaiian language, so as t
be able to communicate with any of the King's il.waii
an subjects, on any mat' er c nnected with his office.
Mr. Ii said he thought the law might be complied
with by an officer, who did not himself understand the
language, employing and paying out of his own money
a secretary and interpreter. The constant expense
would be a constant incentive to diligeuce to acquire the
Hawaiian. The Lnguage waa one which could be
Mr. Bishop's amendment was not seconded. The bill
by suspension of the rules immediately passed through,
its several readings.
The Prinoe Kamehameha introduced a bill for aa act
supplementary to an act in relation to the assessment
and collection of taxes providing that any person who
shall make a fale return of his property to the asses
sors, shall pay twice the amount of taxes be was as
sessed for the same year.
Also an act to provide for a boundary commission to
settle the bound iries of lands awarded in the "Mahele
Book" by name only. This provides that there shall
be two persons, commissioners, in each Oabu, Hawaii,
Maui and Kauai; requires tht all owners of such lands
shall file with the commissioners of the islands in which
are the lands, within four years from date of this act, a
survey defining their boundaries. Notice is given by
the commissioners to all parties in interest, to appear
and defend. The Judge of the district is umpire; in case
of a disagreement of the commissioners, appeal may he
taken to Circuit Court, and on Oahu, to the Supreme
C iurt, where the cause will be heard in banco. The
commissioners have the same powers of citation, pun
ishment of contempt, &0-, as Police Court.
Both these bills passed to their second readings.
Mr. Gregg gave notice of a bill reciting to the qnali
fications of office holders, such-as has been noted in his
June 27. The bill to amend the tax and assess
ment law was considered in Committee of the House.
Mr. Wyllie would insert the word " knowingly,"
making the law to apply only to cases of willful false
Mr. Gregg thought the general principles of juris
prudence would apply, and the insertion of the word
would not add to the force of the law.
Mr. Ii objected to this law as being oppressive to
the poor people. If a man should be guilty of the
venal offence of making a false return, he is subject
ed not only to the costs of Court but to the double
tax. He thought the House of Representatives
would never concur if it should pass here.
Gov. Nahaolelua approved the bill as one which
inflicted only a just punishment on wrong-doers.
The making false returns of property was a great
evil, as he had occasion to know in supervising the
collection of t xes on Maui.
Mr. Wyllie siid that we were not all lawyers. He
conceived that many who had the execution of the
law would construe it literally, and as it read with
out mention of the word knowingly," it might bo
taken to apply to all cases where error had been
made without intention. He had always urged that
the laws should be expressed with the utmost plain
ness. Gov. Knnoa thought the insertion of knowing
ly" unnecessary ; but he would umend lsewhere by
providing that the punishment of a double tax
should not apply to the whole hi list of the offender,
but only to that property which had been falsely re
turned e. g if the number of horses was falsely re
turned, double his tax on the number not returned.
Mr. Wvllie withdrew his amendment.
Gov. Kekuanaoa concurred in the amendment of
Mr. Bishop also concurred in it. There was much
need of some provision bv which those who returned
short assessments could be reached. He wished it
to be re erred to a select committee for consideration
Mr. Wyllie was strongly opposed to sending busi
ness of simple character to committees, as tending to
Amendment made to double the tax only on the
species of property in which false returns was made,
and bill ord- red engrossed for third reading.
Mr. Gregg introduced his bill requiring in all offi
cers of this Government, except Heads of Depart
ments and Diplomatic Agents accredited to foreign
countries, to he appointed after two years, to have a
knowledge of Hawaiian language. Aiso. a bill for an
Act amending Sec. 591 of Civii Code, providing that

for not to exceed thirty days, unless the time be ex

The bill to regulate the powers and duties of the
Second Associate Justice of the Supreme Court was
received from the House of Representatives. It pro
vides that the Second Associate Justice shall have

define the duties of the Second Associate Justice, but
did not define them. Further consideration put off

Moral. Equality in services in kind and degree, and

of equi'y in maintaining a sanitary equilibrium essen

first thing (not the last) is to remove any existing ob
