THE POLYNESIAN.
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 .

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.
