SATURDAY. DECEMBER 20. 1862 QT We bare read with much attention the lead ing article io the "Baafic Commercial Advertiser of thia week. It U not onlj very well written aa to its style, bat also courteous, liberal and even kind in its language and apparent intentions, things of most uncommon scarcity in the columns of that journal. We heartily congratulate the Advertiser on having found a writer who in the space of two columns does not once commit himself to the lead ing vices of that journal, who keeps bis pen unsul lied by personalities and his heart free from the pre sumption of judging other men's motives la speaking of the present liquor question, as it is commonly called, and the issue raised about the constitutionality of the present restrictive laws, the writer says : The first adviser of thia nation were very naturally from those who first came among them in the capacity of teachers, with doubtless pure motives, aod who won the confidence of the chiefs, by their disinterested efforts for their good, with an honest desire to benefit them, aod for a Ions; period of time their counsels were salutary, and were to a measure followed by the people with happy results. Bat in time the application of perhaps too ripd a code or morals to the foreign elements, which had rapidly in creased In the country, caused a powerful opposition to be formed against them. Perhaps a more generous and genial spirit of courtesy aod respect for the opinions of others might hare as suaged the bitterness of spirit with which they and their works hare since been pertinaciously and systematically assailed, but a lack of that ruavilrr in tmodo, which might have popularised their principles and opinions, does not surely warrant the indi criminate denunciation of their works without reference to their value, justice or adaptability to the wants of the nation, that has characterized the opposition to them. Mankind are ever prone to extremes, and, in endeavoring to prevent one excess, they are apt to rush to another; and now, from a perhaps too rigid code of laws, we are in danger of inaugurating a system of unhealthy laxity of rule The Reformatory spirit is but too apt to turn iconoclastic. From lopping off the excrescences, they seem to threaten the building itself, pinnacle and dome, capitol and base. Their furi ous seal would seem to aim at the total demolition of the whole structure of Hawaiian civilization and Christianity, rather than that a trace of the first plan should exist. From a government almost monastic in its tendencies, we are drifting rapidly to a still worse state of anarchy and Irreligion, when a gilded toy shall receive our homage, and the proper restraints of law be corned While we gratefully accept and fairly construe the admissions in the above extract, yet they only represent . one view of the subject. It is not altogether true that ' the application of too rigid a code of morals to the foreign elements caused a powerful opposition," &c., has been, or still is, the cause of the opposition evinced to the measures and the manner of conducting this people from barba rism to civilization. The dead need no defender ; we speak for the living, for what is. lor ourselves, as the exponent of those who desire as ardently, and strive as faithfully, to arrive at the same end, but by other means, as the Protestant Missionaries ; and we spurn the idea that the application of too rigid a code of morals " to us and our co-workers is the cause of our opposition, the stimulus of our reforms. The writer's sentence is well rounded and reads smoothly, but is only saved from the grossest personality by the general tenor of the article and the evident desire not to offend, while maintaining his own opinion. It is not the " application of too rigid a code of morals " to ourselves that we par ticularly object to we can bare our breast along side of the bravest or the proudest of the " advisers of this nation," be they lay or clerical,-but it is to the applieation of too rigid a code to those with whom it was attempted to supply the absence of moral sentiment by a surplus of statute laws. It was the closing of national wounds with legal sticking-plaster, driving the humors inward or to find vent in other directions ; it was the believing too much in the omnipotence of law, too little in the undertow of human nature ; it was not the rigid ness of morals per se, as principles of action, preached, taught and expounded, but the inflexibil ity of penalties andSheir disproportion to the moral sense of the offense, that have made us seek to re lax a system of legislation, a rule of political action, that has whitewashed but not regenerated, that has hardened instead of improved, that has wrought in jury, misery, death and contempt for the law in stead of saving, reforming, protecting and elevat ing. We admit fully the proneness of mankind to extremes," but warned by the past, and loaded with such clogs as the writer and his party, we expect to be able to keep pretty closely to that via media on which a true and healthy progress alone can be ac complished. The nation has given us instances of the excesses on both sides, but it is neither accord ing to our idea of right in the abstract, nor of hu man perfectibility in the application, to adhere ob stinately to one extreme for fear of falling into an other. The writer admits what we have contended for as a preliminary of any discussion the excess ; it is with him to prove that we are " inaugurating a system of unhealthy laxity of rule," and that we are " drifting" to a state of" anarchy and irrelig ion." . The writer accuses us of inconsistency in claim ing on one hand that this people are not fitted for any constitutional rights at all," and yet demand ing for them " an absence of legal restraints " which obtain among other people and has not even been asked for by them. The charge, besides be ing untrue in details, is more specious than real in substance. We have never asserted that this peo ple are " not fitted for any constitutional rights at all," but we do contend that they are not fitted for a Constitution so democratic in ita essence, as the one they have got, a Constitution so inconsistent with itself, as to presume the people competent to shape national policies of the most complicated na ture, and yet incompetent to transact their own county or provincial business. The writer who chides as for extreme tendencies should, himself have refrained from exaggeration in his charge, knowing well that an exaggeration of truth is as fatal to the argument as a suppression. It is just because we contend for constitutional rights, irre spective of the particular form in which those rights may be embodied, that we object to a law that die criminates between man and man on account of the color of his skin and the accident of his origin.. Again, when the writer says that we derri3U for this people " an absence of legal KBtjTjJ,-' 4c, w. Mr be inadvertently or ignorantlysswfil not be lieve it done willfully) misstates the truth and in vests oar acts in the shape which his own troubled imagination has conjured op. We demand the ab sence of no legal restraints which experience has shown to be judicious and effective for the end in view. But time and experience have amply shown that, for many years past, the prohibiting licensed liquor-dealers to sell to natives has practically be come a dead letter, or only been enforced at fitful moments for purposes which we care pot to analyze, but which certainly added nothing to th force of the law or the dignity of the government. Time bas also shown that in measure as thia particular re straint was relaxed, drunkenness baa not increased, and that at the present time or up to the late trials when every Public House sold to every na tive who could pay for his liquor, drunkenness has most materially decreased. We advocate therefore the repeal of that prohibition on the ground of its inutility, and on the ground of the moral injary which its secret, continued and unavoidable infrac tion must work to the consciences of the buyer, the seller, and the executive offioers charged with its execution. It is said that this people have never asked to finvA tflA urn hibitinn renealed. The assertion 18 a brutum fulmen, and, if it proves anything, proves too much. The people never asked for the repeal of the ancient tabus, for the emancipation from vassalage, for the distribution of the Crown deui" esnes and the fee-simple grants, for the Constitu tion and universal suffrage. Must we therefore conclude that all thoe measures are valueless, un just and without " adaptability to the wants of the nation? " The Constitution," says the writer further, "claiming that all are free and equal before it, prolaims not a license to all to follow their own propensities." Very true, but it does proclaim the right of all to do what one may do, and on the same conditions incumbent on all, to preserve peace, order, and public decorum, whatever the nature of the permitted transaction ; and it is the violation or the conditions that is punished, not the exercise of the right. The writer argues that the people have a right to be protected from bad habits. He is riht, as usual, but only right by half. The protection from had habits should come, and can only come effectually, from an an improved education ; and here the writer, unintentionally perhaps, but none the less effectually, places his friends, the teach era and advisers," in the painful dilemma either of asserting that after forty years' teaching the education of the people, its morals and habits. have not been improved, or else of proclaiming themselves political imbeciles who do not see that the limbs of the child have outgrown the dimen sions of the walking chair, and who insist on a disqualification based, not on the merits of each individual case, but on the sweeping distinction of race and color. There are some other points of social economy and public legislation, on which the writer's profundity " is equally remnrkable. They seem, however, to have been filtrated through the same mental stratum that has given character and color to the foregoing utterances, and as we have often combatted them before, we will not dwell upon them now. ForriXw News. The four or five days later telegraphic news from the American war, brought by the Kuig-Fulter on Sunday Inst, throw no more light on the situation of (he opposing armies in Virginia than we possessed before. The San Francisco journals confess that they are unable to make head or tail of the conflicting tel egrams transmitted over the wires. And some of them frankly tell their readers not to believe a word of them unless confirmed for three days consecu tively. The situation " in Virginia is a tangled yarn to our contemporaries across the sea, and if they fail to unravel it, we can not expect to be more for tunate. Nothing apparently advances but time and the winter weather. A grand battle has been immi nent every day since the rebels recrossed the Poto mac (battles always are in time of war), but a suita ble battle-field has not been found. In the meantime bth armies seem to be kept warm by marching on parallel lines up ar.d down. The San Francisco Ctill is very satirical in its remarks, saying that the log ical summing up of the telegraphic reports would be that the Federal army is advancing on Richmond, from which it is only 45 miles distant, while the rebel army is advancing on Washington, from which it is but 35 miles distant, thus indicating a contest of swiftness in which the rebels would have a start of 10 miles. But it is vain to speculate on the situa tion " in Virginia : when the battle has been fought, we shall know who fought it, though we may not know who won it till some lime afterwards. From Europe the news is more interesting. Eng land has positively declined the proposition of France to offer mediation in American affairs. It has acted wisely. Mediation should either precede a war, or only follow after exhaustion. Queen Victoria had returned from her tour to Germany. In France the Italian question had received a defin itely indefinite postponement, and as a mart that the Emperor's policy was to maintain the ttatu quo, Mr. Thouvenel resigns the Foreign Portfolio and is auc ceeded by Mr. Drouyn de l'lluys. From the Cor respondance Couailhac " of the Echo du Paeijique we copy the following upon the situation in Europe : The Emperor seems to have well chosen the time to make known his intenti- ns regarding Italy. The military prestige of Garibaldi is weakened ; there is a complete estrangement between Garibaldi and the King. The danger that might have been imminent from a concerted action between the King and the Dictator, is no longer possible. Italy is disarmed ; she must surrender to diplomacy, and it is by diplo matic, or at least politico-European, means that the Emperor Nap, leon intends to settle the Italian ques tion. He will return to his ideas of a federation, ex cluding Austria however. The rumor is generally accredited in Vienna that Napoleon III., King Wil liam ar.d the Czar Alexander have agreed to assume the direction of that great movement which at this time is agitating every nationality. The French Em peror has succeeded in making these two northern sovereigns understand that it would be dangerous and perhaps impossible ta resist that movement of the age, and that therefore tluir own interests strongly urged them to become the leaders and regulars of these tendencies of peoples. The recognition of the Italian Kingdom by Russia and Prussia, and the con cessions made by the Czar Alexander to Poland are the first results of this tripple accord, and the com mencement of a fixed plan regarding the European movement of nationalities. It is apprehended at Fi enna that other results will soon transpire to the detri ment of the Austrian Empire. Prussia is resolved to enter into the German question with all energy ; and Mr. de Bismark means to deprive the Union party, which baa hitherto acted in a revolutionary sense, of the direction of the German future. The Prussian Government will not hesitate to engage the conflict with Austria, or rather deadly strife, in which the two great German powers will contend for the scepter of the future German Empire. At the same time a pressure will be made by France and Russia, at Vi enna, for the purpose cf obtaining an amicable cession of Venice. Our statesmen," so say Vienna corres pondents, consider the question of the Roman tem porality as closed for the present Napoleon III. pur sues at thig moment a European solution, not only of tbe Roman question, but of the whole Italan question. Of this our official world is thoroughly satisfied ; and it is the Venetian question which will for a time sup plant the Roman question in the negotiations of the Cabinets and the attention of the public. France and Russia will attack us diplomatically on this ground, while Prussia will stuck as on German ground." There is, possibly, a great deal ot truth in the above surmises. The Prussian Legislature has been dissolved on ac count of disagreement upon the Budget. It is the second Legislature dissolved in the same manner jvd for the same e iuse. King William, by the graA f God," understands Constitutionalism one way, and subjects understand it another. Undoubtedly the Ger mans like an united Fatherland, but would hardly ac cept it in the form of a consolidated despotism, and if it comes to that, the choice between the Hohenzol lems and the Hapsburghs would be perhaps " six of one and half-a-dozen of the other." While Prussia seems to lean towards reactionary measures, Russia is preparing itself for a political re organization almost constitutional in its essence. The following are said to be the most prominent changes: The Assemblies of each Government (Province), to be composed of Delegates elected by the District Councils and representing all classes of the people ; the As semblies to meet annually for twenty-one days, and the District Councils for seven days ; each Assemb'y elect ing an Executive Administration for its own Govern ment (Province); the Judiciary to be remodeled on the pattern of Constitutional countries, with immovable Judzes, public trials, Juries, Courts of Appeal and equality before the law ; tbe Emperor relinquishes the power of confirming judgments and only reserves the power of pardoning. And, finally, martial law bas been repealed in the Polish Provinces. There is day light for the Sclave. The Emperor certainly com mences aright by laying the substnta of future Con stitutionalism before resigning the control of the general Government into the hands of the demos ; a course that ought to hive been followed in this country, but was not. Consequently Russia will be logically as well as politically consistent, instead of a hysteron proteron, an artificial flower without a stalk to support if. The late young Queen Maria of Naples, wife of Francis IL. and twenty-one years old, has entered the Convent of St. Ursula, at Augsburg, and is going to take the vows. In Victoria, V. I., the majority of the Prince of Wales was celebrated with great demonstrations, races. illuminations, dinners etc. The sport came near being spoiled. It is the custom in Victoria, as it is here, on gain uays, lor every one who chooses to hoist some bunting or other to help adorn the town and express his good will toward the person or event that is cele brated. Among the many fligs displayed on the above occasion in Vktoria was a Secesh fUg, which so irri tated the loyal American residents that they all struck their flags and the Consul sent an official note to Gov ernor Douglas on the subject. After flying his flag for a couple of hours the obnoxious Secesh hauled it down, whereupon the Union fligs were re-hoisted, and nothing further occurred to roar the pleasure of the day. In Governor Douglas' reply to the American Consul, afer stating that the only flags recognized by the English Government in that place were those of nations regularly iccredited and represented there, such as France, the United States of America, Ha waiian Islands, Sic, he goes on to say: It has hith erto been customary on fete days and anniversaries uot to prevent any resilient foreigner at Vancouver from hoisting whatever colors it raiht please him to d . Therefore ITis Excellency cannot but regret that on such an occasion the Consul of the United States of America should have conferred the jolue of a nntioiuij iierrea the jolue or i :ognized by Jov i ha inn. emblem on a flag not recognized by V Government" A large meeting .was held in the Court House on Thu.-swJJ 1th instant, the Governor of Maui, P. NabaoleTlifthecSSfr, to consider what prsajawatory steps should be taken for the reception of a branch of the Hawaiian Church, (Reformed and Catholic), in that Island. The Hon. G. M Robertson, Mr. Attorney-General Harris, Mr. Adams, Vice-Consul of the United States Dr. Hutchinson and other leading inhabitants of the place attended and took part in the proceedings. The Governor and Judge Robertson introduced, in native and English, the Bishop of Honolulu to tbe meeting. The Bishop briefly described the Constitution and principles of the new Church which he represented, and then traced out tbe origin of its connexion with the Sandwich Isles. He said that the application of the present King to Great Britain for English Clergy was only in harmony with what his predecessors had done before him, as in the instance of Kamehameha the First's request to Vancouver in 1794. The Bishop said he believed there was a great work to be done at Lahaina for the native people, especially in regard to female education. This would receive special atten tion. It appeared to him that enough stress was not laid among them on the acquisition of English not the language, merely, but the literatl; thought, and educational influences to whichPaat language was the key. Their new pastoryRev. Mr. Scott, would live among them and witSem, ever entering into the joys and sorrows of jh one of them. He would be their best friend pot onty in matters spiritual, but in also seeking tojoniote their temporal interests espe cially as they depended on industrial habits. The Church would be wholly free, bo far as any charge to aiian people was concerned. Whatever they do voluntarily to help on the Mission would be But they would not be solicited. And the ordinances of religion would be dealt out in no stinted measure, " without money and without price." In conclusion tbe Bishop expressed the most entire good will and Christian feeling to the religious bodies already existing in the Islasjds. AH he wanted was to be let alone, and allowed to do in the Church's own way, the great work still left on hand, that of improving the physical as well as moral condition of the people. Each paragraph of the Bishop's address was inter preted by Judge Robertson. Dr. Hutchinson, in moving a vote of welcome to the Bishop, expressed the pleasure with which he had list ened to his Lordship's remarks. As a baptized mem ber of the Church of England, he valued greatly tbe privilege of belonging to its communion. He believed a great centre of usefulness was opening at Lahaina. Especially did he concur in the remarks of the Bishop on the subject of female and industrial education. In this regard he did hope the new Mission would be ef fective. If bo, he thought they would succeed in elevating what still remained of the people and that so they would be preserved to take a worthy place among the civilized nations of the globe. Major Hoapili, after translating the resolution into Hawaiian, briefly seconded it. The Rev. W. R Scott, Judge Robertson, Mr. Attorney-General Harris, Mr. Webster and the Governor addressed each few observations to the meeting, at the close of which the Bishop pronounced the benediction. thp, fceived.
