Ma.' Editor :
"Sint unicuique sua premia."
Lever says : when a man stoops to, be kicked in
ihii world, he'll always rind some kind friend ready
to oblige him with the compliment." No sooner did
I stoop to vindicate my production from the aspersion
of vileness which the Rev. Mr. Green so gratuitously
put upon it, than the hue ancLcry 13 started after me,
as if I were some literary outlaw, some moral lepero;
and gents with names and nameless gents take up the
view-halloa in diapason fine. One, two, three ; two
leaders and a flunky set out "to do or die" and
make of me such an example to future evil-doers,
that none may dare to look askance at " non-resisting
pastors, nor doubt their spirit of meek forbear
ance.
M It is the wit, the policy of sin,
To hate those meu we have abused."
The staccato notes of Mr. Green's fish horn sound the
reveille ; the roulade of Mr. Bishop announces the
gathering, and Mr. Logic" (the man in the mask,
the ami de la maison, the volunteer in a private
quarrel,) performs the ouverture de la chasse on some
cracked syllogisms and spavined opinions.
And why this alarum?
" A defunct editor," a disbeliever in Missionary
politics and the three per cents of the Apostolic dives,
has dared to revisit the glimpses of the moon" and
disturb the snugly raked up ashes on the clerical
hearth. "I'll cross it, though it blast me," says G ;
let me not burst in ignorance," says B; "thou
comest in such a questionable shape, that I will speak
to thee, says Logic, and
Unless these b of eternal pains
wAre pardoned their bad hearts for their worse brains,"
no gentle spirit would ever stand a chance before
fluch claqueurs of an oft hissed drama.
I have battled against the political ascendancy of
the Missionaries, as inconsistent with their nobler and
holier functions as tending to draw disgrace and
public contumely on a calling, which none can re
spect more highly than myself when it is exercised in
eingleness of purpose and purity of heart and as
proving invariably injurious to the moral and mate
rial interests of the converts themselves. I combat
led the errors of a class which I believed and still be
lieve to be such, but I mercifully spared the individ
uals and never yet put my foot on a man's conscience
nor my hand on his private life.
This was unpardonable.
From that moment my picture was turned against
the wall of their imagination ; the public journals in
their interest were let loose upon me, and " Christian
pastors" stood by with folded arms and approving
looks while my good name and moral character were
torn to shreds. " What is the use," says Fowler, "of
painting moral pictures without we daub the shades
on thickly?"
It boots not now to recapitulate the strife ; their
bitter objurgations and their sore laments. " Time
at last sets nil things even." They commenced a
descent (malgre, bongre) from the political ladder
though some still occupy the highest raund and I re
tired from the public life of a Journalist. They could
not forego, however, the opportunity of having a
parting fling at my expense and put their rise on my
passport, Mr. G. steps out of their serried ranks to
perform the agreeable duties of sexton, chorister and
priest to a " defunct editor ;" but, alas for the dig
nity of the cloth ! he only verified the old adage, that
quarrelsome dogs get dirty coats." I admit that
in my reply to Mr. G. I may have failed in my usual
urbanity, when I called him and his " class of
writers" bigoted, stripped and fallen, forgetting the
amphibious nature of their pursuits and the delicate
ground of their position but men have sometimes
intuitive glances at the truth, and the sequel bore me
out in the assertion. Still from my soul I regret
having occasioned so great a rumpus among such nice
people.
Ere Mr. G., however, was aware of my re-appearance,
and his own wounds, the Rev. Mr. B. with
breathless haste corpus to the rescue and attempts to
cover me with a mantle of epithets more aromatic of
St. Giles than of Andover. He took the tub of Diog
enes for his model of literary architecture and, with
greater pride, he trampled on my own. If such their
weapons and their future play, there was no other re
source left for a gentlemanly writer, than to quit the
m n. 1ivmivVi V,o frffo?7 tha efolroa HT!f1 Hl TT1V
best bow and my blandest smile I made my salaam, and
even offered my hand at parting. Not so, however.
The proffered gage is thrown up and Mr. Logic bars
the door.
TTellbeitso .
u The hand of Douglas is his own."
and now for the last comer.
Mr. Losric has evidently not had the honor of
crossing pens with gentlemen, or he would not pre
sume to bandy my name about while he withholds his
own. From his style I am strongly inclined to be
lieve him an enfant gate of the peripatetic school,
vith a strong dash of wooden nutmegs in his constitu
tion, looking for an opening to pitch in.
I give Mr. L. all credit for not writing " a long
article." The sample before me is quite enough to
convince the critical student that Mr. JL. did not re
ceive . the honors" at Cambridge or Harvard.
Perhaps he had better try" again at Punahou.
Luck is all.
Mr. L. will oblige me and remember that " the ad
vocating the use of wine etc" has not yet been proved
vile, nor probably will it in his or my life-time. As his
major lerm then is not a constant predicate, an ad
mitted truth, ergo Mr. Green's opinion, as the minor
term , is not admissible before such strict logicians as
Mr. Logic and nfyself.
I appreciate the full value of Mr. L's compliment
to my honesty. My companions are declared vile,
and my honesty is appealed to not to deny the con
nection ! Have we an embryo Chesterfield or Count
d'Orsay among us ?
I wonder that Mr. L. should make Mr. Green's
confusion of mind dependant upon an ex post facto
fact; and did he not tell me that his name was Logic,
I should be inclined to think his nom de plume but
another illustration of " lucu3 a non lucendo."
" Messieurs, I have now picked up your gauntlet
and am at your service. But if you would only put
the Ancients out of the room, there might be pleas
anter sparring and a better clang from the grey goose
quill.
"Who plays next ? A. Fornander.
. To the Editor of the P. C. Advertiser. -
Sir: In your No. of Oct, lGth, it seems you" are
inclined to think that the " Bureau of Public Works
is not in the proper hands." Perhaps not. We, in
this remote region, have no means of knowing the
efficiency of that department, except by the liberality
of the appropriations, projected, doubtless by said de
partment, for worthy objects here and many other
.Trheres, and then ending in smoke. Under the old
teetotal, non-resisong, puuiic improving regime, a
little here and a little there were doled out betimes,
but always in the right direction, to assist ana en
courage public improvements. We were graceless
enough then tc think these little aids came from nig
gardly hands, and consequently hailed with delight
the high promises shadowed forth in the reports of
the becretary ftt war. I, for one, gave the Hon. fcec-
retary great credit, for so modest a man, for travel
ling boldly out of his legitimate duties to assail the
Bureau of Public Works. His motives, doubtless,
were good, as they always are, and he little dreamed
then, I trow, that the arduous duties of that Bureau
would ever be forced upon him. I rejoiced at the
change &nd confidently looked for better things,
though I must confess I was a little staggered at the
engineering lore evinced in the above mentioned re
ports, which savored not , little of Roman aque
ducts, military roads, .and Egyptian pyramids.
Pardon me, Mr. Editor, I did not take pen for the
purpose of lauding the Hon. Secretary's motives or
nis engineering abilities, however willing I might be
nnder fitaog circumstances to vouch for his industry
but simply to say a word or two about our improve
t raenta here. - Under the old teetotal administration
. re managed to get a bridge built here at one time
and a.bridge there at another a few tool3 now and
then to knock rocks out of the way and cut pathways
along tho palis.and last and not least a movement was
made to erect a bridge over the river of Destruction
(Wailuku.) But our war administration has brought
every thing to a military halt We, here, could have
endured all this nnd much more, for we are loyal,
and perhaps finally been led to admire the splendid
tactics introduced into the Bureau of Public Works,
had the Wailuku bridge first been finished upon which
we had so much set our hearts. This river, you must
know, skirts our lovely town and for many weeks
during each year cuts off all travel from the richest
portion of our district, on account of freshets, and
what is worse, succeeds in immolating a victim or
two during the same period.
There was ample appropriation made by the last
Legislature to complete the bridge, and we in the in
tensity of our desire to see it finished, cannot discern
the propriety of diverting all the public money to
other uses even to so important a matter as the mil
itary. For my part I'm sure I should feel consoled
under these grevious circumstances if I was positively
assured that the Jackass Artillsry, which played so
eminent a part in the Hon. Secretary's report, have
taken the field. Doubtless you have an abundance of
material in Honolulu for such a regiment if not, the
Legislature or that part of it which acted upon the
suggestion would be just the stuff. Please let us know
about this company of invincibles. Also the prospects
for the bridge We are intensely anxious about these
matters. Yours &c, &c. Hilo. '
P. S. Jake, one of my neighbors, with a haunted
hat, requests me to inquire if them " Ambulances"
have arriv. He declares that to be the awfulest sug
gestion ever made by man " why," he says, I
have dreamed a hundred times since I read that story
about the Ambulances of being piked in battle and
then trudged off in that vehicle with my body on one
side and my head on the other side. 'Twas plain as
daylight." I have advised him to apply to govern
ment for a pension. He feels consoled, knowing the
state of the treasury.
