SATURDAY. SEPTEMBER 20. I8i2
The Legislature adjourned without making
the necessary reforms in the Hawaiian achool
jstenx. The necessity of such reform was either
beyond their comprehension, or they were appalled
by the magnitude of the subject ;- and, though suf
ficiently bold to attack financial mistakes, their
hearts failed them before the educational fortifica
tions and the ecclesiastical wrath with which such
Measure would have been received. The conse
quence is that the country will continue to be
blessed with a system of education that has been
weighed and found wanting-, that has been con
demned as inadequate and inappropriate by both
friends and foes ; a system which, a fur having
bad undisputed away over the whole of this people
during more than the time of an entire generation,
embracing ctery adult person under thirty years,
still leaves ever the smallest government offices in
the hands of foreigners, still leaves the people
tongue-tied on the world's thoroughfare, still has
made no provision for the erection of those domes
tic altars at which the coming generation may
learn to bow in reverence, obedience and truth,
still ignores the education of the conscience and
the religion of labor. A full and unembarrassed
treasury is a very good thing no doubt, but a
thousand intelligent, industrious and well-bred
Hawaiian children would have been worth more
than all the revenues of the country for more than
ten years to come. The one should undoubtedly
have been attended to, but the other not omitted.
But the blame of this neglect must not all he
laid on the shoulders of the Legislature. Had the
Board of education emancipated itself from the
fetters of tlte old system ; had the views of one of
its members, as expressed before the Legislature of
1858, prevailed ; had the Ministry taken common
ground on this question and boldly gone before the
country in case the Legislature had proved unman
ageable, they would assuredly have been forgiven
those petty financial mistakes, which then would
have sunk into absolute insignificance before so
momentous a subject, and they would then have
connected themselves in Hawaiian history with
something, whose very failure even, if such a thing
could be supposed, would have made them great
and regretted, and their names revered by every
upright, sensible mind that can see the moral and
social nothingness to which the people are now
We have no knowledge, while we are no-v writ
ing, of what changes may be made in the Cabinet,
the Board of Education, or the various other offi
ces now held at the pleasure of His Majesty and 1
the option of the Executive Departments ; but this
we know, that any and every Cabinet that does not
make an educational reform the first plank in their
policy, the constant unswerviog object of their in
fluence and activity, does ipso facta confess itself
incompetent to take a broad, comprehensive and
Statesmanlike view of the condition and destiny of
this people ; they may be as honorable, honest,
punctilious and exact as man could wish, but they
will not le the men to regenerate and redeem the
Hawaiians from the cvl dt sac of civilization in
which a faulty education has thrust them, in which
they are stifling, and from which there is no other
outlet than through a thorough change of system ;
they may put the house of the Hawaiian people in
the best possible order, but it will he for " execu
tors, administrators and assigns," and not for that
people itself, or its " heirs of the body begotten ;'
they Jiay make treaties with foreign nations, and
laws at home that will make the world tingle with
astonishment to its remotest shores, but unless
they substitute a better mode of education, the
only tingling in Hawaiian ears will be tho death
vail of their people, a suffocating sensation at
heart, as they recede in broken fragments before
the light, knowledge, energy and savoir faire of a
civilization, in whose outer courts they lingered a
while, but to whose inner temple the password
never was given them.
We all know that for 30 to 40 years the whaling
fleets exercised a paramount influence over the
moral and social condition of this country. In the
meanwhile, the people shrank in numbers and per
ished at heart, sri though during nearly the whole of
that period the world was regaled with frequent
accounts of the progress of education and religion
in the Sandwich Islands. Imagine from 10,000 to
15,000 sailors ashore every year, with plenty of
money in their pockets, and happy-go-lucky
dispositions ; imagine a people devoid of
nearly every industrial resource, set adrift by their
lawmakers to shift for themselves, intoxi
cated with a liberty tbej knew not how to use a
people sensuous and covetous at the same time
half heathen, half Christian and the effects of
that first collision need no description. That or
deal is past, and though diminished in numbers
and deteriorsted in condition, the people still in a
great measure holds its own on its own soil, and
in the mercy of Providence a breathing time is af
forded to prepare against the next inundation
whose shadows are already rising over the eastern
horizon, in the shape of projected trans-Pacific
team lines, with these islands at their converging
point. When that happens, there will be an in
flux of foreign wealth, energy, capital, luxury,
before which the Hawaiian element, as a natural
consequence of the meeting of unequal forces, will
be obliged to recede to the depths of its vallevs or
the tops of its mountains, and irretrievably deepen
the lines of caste, the sense of inferiority, and de
spondency that cowe exertion and lead to death.
And are we to accept such a calamitous result
as a judgment of Heaven, a decree of Provyce,
a manifest destiny, when in a great.vCiu're, if
no aitogemer, it may oe averted by timely and
energetic action on the part of the Cabinet, the
Legislature, teachers, philanthropists, and especial
ly the Press?
JJo! ten thousand times no ! Tho stream runs
smooth and placid on the surface, but the preci
pice is close at hand. There is no pressing dan
ger, we have baen told; such changes as we advo
cate, it is said, require time, caution, ample means
and gradual iotroductun; in the course of some
three iuadrtd years more', ihey'say, the Hawaii

that time the Hawaiians will only be remembered
in history as having once excited a lively interest
in the settlement of a long-standing dispute,
whether the Bible or the spade was the bent instru
ment for introducing civilization in a barbarous
land ; will only be remembered as another illustra
tion of national suicide, beginning with a surfeit
of political medicines and ending with political
What is past we can not alter; let the dead bury
their dead: we can not turn back the stream of life,
but we can lead it off from the precipice and the
abyss, and make it profitable to itself and others
for ages to come; and to do so, let us cut in as high
as we can reach ; let us begin with the young ; let
us reform our educational system.
The want of reform demonstrated and its urgen
cy conceded, let there be no delay. Let the Board
of Education take the initiative, and no longer
wait for the tardy action of possibly wavering or
inimical Legislatures. According to the C9Gth
section of the Civil Code, the Board has power to
" adopt rules for the internal regulation and gov
ernment of the public schools and schools support
ed by government, not inconsistent with any law
of this kingdom." A great deal, a good beginning
may be made under these powers, if undertaken
by men alive to the importance of the subject. And
if the necessity of the case and the breadth of their
system require them in any one particular to trans
cend the strict letter of Chapter X of the Civil
Code, let them courageously take the responsibili
ty and frankly apeal to the next Legislature for a
justification of their acts. Better that they should
go before the Legislature with indemnity bills,
than that the nation should suffer from a delay
which no indemnity could compensate for.
We have heard some men talk of the indepen
dance of the Hawaiian Kingdom, of the security
of the Hawaiian dynasty and the progress of the
Hawaiian people, with an applomh and assurance
as if there were no clouds in the political firmament,
noshadows in the social foreground. Let them re
consider the premises, let them undeceive them
selves. There can be no independence where
knowledge and liberty are not popular self-sustained
developments of the national mind ; there
can be no security while the population continues
to be depleted by ignorance and death ; there can
!o no progress where the nation receives every
thing and pours nothing back into the lap of civ
ilization. But the beginning and consolidation of indepen
dence, security and progress, lie in the education
of the people, in such an education of the young,
or so great a portion of them us will leaven the
other and give tone to the whole.
That that education is not furnished by the
present Hawaiian school system, we have abun
dantly shown on former occasions.
3T Our illimitable neighbor of the Adctrtlser was
kind enough to notice us last week after its own fashion.
It said :
" Our secession neighbor, the Polynesian, is welcome
to crow over ihe retreat of McClell in, and the expected
success of the rebels expected and wishetl for by him
but his crowing must tie done quick, for the hopes of
the rebels are uarrowing to a point."
We are grateful for our neighbor's permission to
" crow over the retreat of McClellan." But as we
never " crow " over the repeated defects and retreats of
our own opponents, we have no breath to spire upon
the opponents of others. Did the Adcertiter, as a for
eign, disinterested and impartial journal should do.
give both phases of the deplorable contest in America,
we should not while writing for the same community
feel obliged to supplement its accounts and make up
for its omissions. It knows but one section of the
United States the Northern. There, all virtue, light
and courage; beyond, all darkness, deviltry and death.
And yet, history tells us that for more than sixty years
those children of moral and social darkness ruled the
land and made it a rose in the de.-ert, a star of hope to
the oppressed of every clime, a flaming sword in the
horizon of their oppressors. Though the Adcertiter
m.iy be ignorant in history, quarrelsome as a bigot and
positive as a village granny, why should we be unjust
to either of the comb itauts and call things by wrong
names r We do not contempt .te. nor do we wish for a
restoration of the Union under the name of ' The
United Northern States and their Dependencies
South ; we do not wish to see the drams of the Roman
Republic re-enacted on American soil, governing the
world by Praetors and Pro-Consuls. We do not wish a
union of boundaries, if thereby the unit of sentiment
and feeling, which we knew in the days of old, and
which is the living force of every nationality, must be
sacrificed. The Union, without the underlying feeling
is a misnomer, an ignis fatuus, a red-hot iron in the
han ls of whoever attempts to grasp it, and our philan
thropy U net yet prepared, our higher law does not
command us, to temper it in fratricidal blood.
The Northern journals and their imitator here
have entirely overdone the thing, by their " crow
ing," arid their misrepresentations both of the facts
at issue and the events occurring. The South
was represented as beggared, starving, without either
arms, money or credit, its leaders as knaves, their
followers as savages; to suspect that a spark of hu
manity still lingered in the South, wss sympathy
with the rebels; to say so, was treason to the North.
And yet this beggared, savage, coward. South has
for eighteen months borne in sullen, silent and defi
ant attitude the whole enormous and united pressure
of Northern arms and Northern pens ; with clenched
teeth and pan tin? breath, fighting on its knees, but
fighting still, the South has kept the North at bay,
has pierced the anaconda's rings in many places ;
hemmed in by hostile fl?cU from all the foreign
succor that so freely flowed into the lap of its adver
saries, it has found within itself, and in its own in
domitable will, resources to carry on an even war
with a people of three times its number and ten
times it wealth. On more than one occasion the
South has amply vindicated its birthright of freemen
and its title to be called Americans ; and we hold
that name inferior t, none, whether the bearer was
born North or South of Mason's and Dixon's Line.
And such evidences of unflinching courage, of heroic
devotion and endurance for what they conceive to be
their rights and their duty, must not be whispered or
alluded to by foreign journals, who write history for
the sake of truth and not for party purposes, must
be suppressed, concealed or glossed oven under fear
of being called a Secessionist," a sympathizer"
and an abettor of the disruption of the Union !
just as if the abstract merits of the cause of the quar
rel have anything to do with the practical conduct of
the combatants; just as if Hector were any less
worthy of admiration or Pria-n of sympathy, because
Paris mas a "Chevalier d'industrie,' and Helen a
We can well conceive, and in a measure excuse, the
extreme susceptibility of the Northern States on the
question of sundering the Union. It touches their
material interests too nearly to be argued calmly by
men, to whom the South and Southwest were ali.e a
granary and a treasury. They had been so accus
tomed to the noise of S .uthern declamations and va
poring, that they were entirely taken by surprise to
find these threats carried into effect. They had been
lulled by reverend and irreverend f inatics and in
sidious foes into a false security and their disap
pointment add rage were proportionately intense. To
speak for the South was treason ; t look askance at
the possibility that the root of the quarrel grew in
Northern soil, brought ostracism on the audacious
culprit ; when they are told by calm and impartial
people that, in attempting to coerce bac?:to the
Union independent and unwilling Constituent, if
that Union, they are only crushing out the spirit thai
made it possible at first that has sustained it after
wards then they look upon it as an insult, a proof
of enmity and an approval of secession. All this we
can well understand and make due allowance for ;
but when a foreign picayune journal, in a foreign
land, without interest at stake or provocation to ex
cite, takes upon itself to carry th- quarrel out of
doors, so to say, and to blackball other foreign jour
nals as Secessionists, we can neither understand the
presumption nor excuse the irhpertinence.
CF To be impartial" says the Adcertiter, in dila
ting upon the state of military affairs in Virginia.
What a naive confession of former one-si ledness,
braggadocio and bigotry ; what an unusual emotion
in the Advertiser sensorium ! To be impartial"
not once, when no purpose can be subserved any
long! r by unfairness and partiality; but to be im
partial, candid and fair in recording events, as well
os advancing Conclusions, is what the Advertiser has
yet to lenrn. We hail its commencement, however,
with pleasure It docs well to acknowledge that the
rebellion is something more than a flea-bite, and
will require something more than cold steel to sup
In one thing, however, we see that our contem
porary still follows its old bad habit of jumping at
conclusions. It predicts that the general emancipa
tion of the slaves, by proclamation f the President
of the United States, is an event close at hand, and
that it will prove an invincible weapon in subduing
the rebellion. We fear the Advertiser's prophecy
will meet with considerable interruption in its ful
fillment, from the rebellious slaveholders, who are so
"terribly in earnest." and whose strength has hith
erto been so singularly underrated. We have been
led to believe though we mav be wrong that the
President's proclamations were not kindly received
at the South, and generally speaking, a dead letter,
unless presented at the point of the bayonet. But
it is the sharpness of that very point which the im
pending battle in Virginia will probably decide. It
therefore seems to us a little premature to build much
faith on emancipation proclamations until the authori
ty of the Federal Government has been restored at the
Sooth. General Hunter tried emancipation proclama
tions in South Carolina, Georgia and Florida, and the
foolish slaves would not avail themselves of the oppor
tunity so long as their masters had arms in their
hands to prevent them. The old proverb says : " first
catch your fish, then stew it," When the Federal
Government has re-established itself throughout the
length and breadth of Dixie land, it can dispose of
Dixie's servants as it pleases.
The Advertiser quotes the whole of the circular letter
of Doctor Doupanloup, Catholic 13ihop at Orleans, iu
France, formerly editor of Ami de la Religion, in Paris.
As Mr. Doupanloup tis well known, we believe, as a
sensation preacher, and we have not the space to quote
the various strictures which his letsthas received from
his own co-religionists, we refer tlTiertiser to the
'New York Freeman's Journal and C Register"
of June 7, 1862, as one of several reviewSjch that
letter haicalled out, and which "to be imnarutHjlr it

To be impartial," when speaking of the abolition j
sentiment in the Northern States, why not intimate
that journals i f so wide circulation as the New York
Herald speak of the abolition pressure" upon the
Federal Government in this wise :
As the reason for this indecisive policy of the
administration, the President says that the abolition
faction comprises many whose support the country
cannot afford to lose." There never was a sadder
mistake than this. The country can afford to Ioe
the support of every man who prefers the negro t
the Union. The abolitionists are so sm:ill, though
so noisy a faction, that the country would not miss
them if every one of them were hung. Their only
services to the country consist in the pressure upon
him,' of which the President speaks. The abolition
party does nt number one-tenth of the pe -pie of the
loyal States. The alwlitionists in the army and navy
are so lew and far between that they are never heard
of. Even in the Massachusetts regiments the con
servatives L.rgely predominate. The support" of
the abolitionists is a delusion. They talk much, they
write much, they fill offices, but they do nothing for
the Union. On the contrary, we have often demon
strated that they do much against it. Fir a few
weeks, ncently. abolitionism, through its intrigues
with Secretary Stanton and its majority in Congress,
had practical control of the war power of the govern
ment. Now. what possible go.d has it accom
plished? Where is the abclition Oenenl who won
a battle? Where an- the negroes who were to rise
against their masters at the issue of such a proclama
tion as that of Gen. Hunter ? How many negroes have
the abolitionists induced to join their blnck brigades ?
Geo. Hunter has obtained but four hundred negroes
from three slave States, though he has made his parnde
ground a camp meeting, and intersperses the military
drill with religious hymns, of which negroes are pas
sionately fin)'!. Where have the abolition plana for
th war succeeded ? Where has abolitionism gained us
a frieiil even in England : When has abolitionism
saj-fV-' State to the Union, as conservatism saved Ken-JW-3
and Maryland ? When has abolitionism won
rxick a State to the Union, as conservatism has won
Mis-'ouri and Tennessee, and is fast winning Louisiana ?
At Hilton Head, where the abolitionists h-ive had full
swing, what have they done to restore the Union ? Ab
olition intrigues have resulted only in defeats. Aboli
tion interference with recruiting nd with our armies
his killed volunteering, and the very men who offered
and were refused aionth ago now have to be sought for
and hired with extra bounties. Abolitionism has even
killed its own party, and driven such ol I fashioned
abitionists as Seward and Weed into a coalition with
conservatives. The scum of the abolition faction only
remains. Would gradual emancipation satisfy these
fanatics? Would they vote for the President's bill in
Congress? Is their support worth the trouble of
asking for it ? Is it worth more than the Union r
And to be still further " impartial' why not indi
cate that the Border States, through their Representa
tives in Congress expressed themselves in the following
" We have anxiously looked into this passage to dis
cover its true import, but we are yet in paintul uncer
tainty. How can we, by conceding what you now ask,
relieve you and the country from the increasing pres
sure to which you refer? We will not allow ourselves
to think that the proposition is, that we consent to give
up slavery, to the end that the Hunter proclamation
may be let loose on the Southern people, for it is too
well known that we would not be parties to any such
measure, and we have too much respect for you to im
agine you would propose it. Can it mean that by sac
rificing our interest in slavery we appease the spirit
that rontrphj that pressurecause it to be withdrawn,
and rkl the country of the pestilent agitation of the
slavery question ? We are forbidden so to think, for
that spirit would not be satisfied with the liberation of
seven hundred thousand slaves, and cease its agitation,
while three millions remain in bondage. Can it mean
that by abandoning slavery in our States we are re-
moving the pressure from you and the country, by pre
paring for a separation on the line of the cotton States?
We are forbidden so to think, because it is known that
we are, and we belie e that you are, unalterably op
posed to any division at all. We would prefer to think
that you defire this concession as a pledge of our snp
port, and thus enable you to withstand a pressure which
weighs heavily on you and the country. Mr. President,
no such sacrifice is ne.-essary to secure our support.
Confine yourself to your constitutional authority ; con
fine your subordinates within the same limits ; conduct
this war solely for the purpose of restoring the Consti
tution to its legitimate authority ; concede to e ch State
and its loyal citizens their just rights, and we are
wedded to you by indissoluble ties. - Do this, Mr.. Pres
ident, and you touch the American heart and invigor
ate it with new hope. You will, as we solemnly be
lieve, in due time restore peace to y..ur country, lift it
from despondency to a future of glory ; and preserve
to your countrymen, their posterity, and man, the in
estimable treasure of constitutional government,"
A friend writing from East Maui says :
During the last fortnight, trees several trees.
to mie number perhaps of half a dozen have been
driung upon, or past, the eastern extremity of this
islaMl of Maui. Some that have come ashore are of
very considerable size thirty or forty feet in length,
and two or three in diameter. Most of these are
quite fresh, and cannot have been very many months
in the water. One very lare tree passed by a few
days since. When seen from the shore it had the
appearance of a ship water-logged, and with jury
mists. Some fancied they saw men on it making
motions of distress. The deception arose from the
upright branches, some of which were swaying to
and fro. On the natives reaching it, they found it
to be a great California pine. The roots extended
over the surface of the water to the length of a large
canoe, and its own length exceeded by much the
longest line they had, which was twenty-four fathoms.
The trunk was perfectly straight, and from their ac
counts must have averaged over six feet in diameter.
The ronts were choked up with soil. No force that
c -uld be here raised could prevail on it to land on
these shores ; so it sailed away in triumph, bound cn
a voyage to the Equator and the coast of Asia. They
say that it was so high above water, that but for the
tediousness of the trip one would have heen
quit safe to have taken passage on it.
I dil not see it myself, having been mauka At the time
of its transit. I should have liked to have boarded it,
had it only been to have affixed to it a bottle with a
paper insMe noting the time nd circumstances of my
visit I should have liked still better, however, had it
been possible, to have devt-eJ means f r cutting short
its trips and landing it here ; for there must be over
5,000 feet solid lumber in it, or CO.000 inch boards,
which at one cent per feet would make $G00, a pretty
litt'e sum in these rarts.
These f icts are interesting, as giving solid data to
phow the force and setting of the currents of the Pa
cific. There can be no doubt that these drifting logs
were carried into the ocean by the Ca'iforni floods of
November and January. I had almost forgotten to
mention that the smaller end of this one was broken
abruptly off, probably in defending some fall.

Ma. Editor : Sir As the troubled waters of legis
lation have subsided on taking a review of results
the requisition of recalling the amounts of salaries paid
from 31st March to 30ih June beyond the new appro
priation allowance, stands out as an unqualified anom
aly in the general opinion of rijht and wrong, and
though some hard foreigners who have had the rule
think thev are right, it is not so in the juJgment of
some nobler native minds. The question is in one sense
a game of chance. The Government say in their bill,
we will continue to pay your pre-appropriated salaries
to 30th June, if a new hill before 30th June does not
lower them there is the only condition and that
event not occurring before the stipulated period the
employes win the game to all intents and purposes,
in meaning and law, and though the sum is considera
ble to the losing party, it is still in honor his loss, and
not to be compared with that of faith which the tide of
mercenary policy would compel. Moreover, retro
spective legislation in laws is not an admissible principle
in the Judicial Sanhedrim. An amount paid according
to law cannot legally be re-demn led on an after de
termination, without a proviso attached to the first
regulation. It may be asked, would the enlarged salary
be paid during those months had it been increased r
The measure ought to be as broad as it is long. Per
haps it would, as it appears obvious it ought, in that
case, but not as a necessity of right, and in this the
case is not parallel. It is usual in business transactions
to pay an increased salary two and three months back
before the date of its enlargement, and it has been done
here by Government heads when regulated by them
That is a principle of liberality though not needed as
by losers by reduction, retaining the surplus. Z.
