c, Co:-0'iXATIT E VAIXB Of THE FkEP SCHOOI. No
'regular system of free schools was established by' the
orernraeet antil the ' year '1841. although each
ol tools' hi'l existed, and were supported, in prt by
tuisBknarie. but mostly br individual chief?, for
w era! years previews. Id. 1641, the first school law
was passed; in J 840, the system was remodelled and,
nun seme modincntions. has been ;n operation ever
s:nce. The instruction in these schools has been in
the native language, by native teachers, and has been
ueh a is rtxnmos in sach schools elsewhere, that is
U has been elementary, consisting of reading, writing,
gieographj, history, morals, vocal musjp, algebra, etc.
It may now be well, after a lapse of seventeen
years to look back, observe the working of the sys
tem, and xee v hat it has accomplished, and what
modifications, if any, are required.
Judging from the tone of a portion -of onr press,
kit free schools are, in the opinion of some, not
wotlh' wbat tliej coat tc support them; the system is
a carcassi." and of course onght to be buried
out of our atgat as soon as poatuble.
What then have our free schools accomplished ? I
nsTrer . . ' -
They have tanght the people to read their own
language. Tills will not be disputed. My lamented
predecessor, Mr. Richards, stated in his report to the
legislature of 1846, that probably more than 70,000
of the population had learned to read at that time,
twl'of coarse had" made Use of books in the native
language, which he estimated to consist of about
ghty different works. In my Report to that honor
able body in 1864, I stated on the most reliable data
rn my possession, that about three-fourths or the
population; could read their own language; and this
5s a crnater proportion, as was shown in that same
Report, than can read in several of the "jeric4n
State. . As a general thing too, those who tan read.
eaa ata write their own language, and acquire some
knowledge of ecru res. Hawaiians being expert at
imitation of any kind; are generally good writers
many of them even elegant; and there is no school
exercise. Hawaiian children delight in so much as
arithmetic It is aafe to say, that translations of the
works of that remarkable genius, Warren Colborn.
especially his mental arithmetic, pursuing as it does,
the Inductive method, has done more than any other
work, to awaken and discipline the native mind.
The amout of knowledge acquired in geography,
history and morals, has not been equal, nroportion,
to that obtained in the other branches mentioned;
thl it has been considerable, especially in those dis
tricts where schools have HoaruheJ most.
- Of what value the ability to read their own Ian
gosge, and acquire knowledge thereby, has been to
the Hawaiian people; now much it bas baa to do with
. their advancement in legislation, social improvement,
dosaestie omfbrt, agriculture, morality and religion ;
and in feet every thing that pertains to their civiliza
tion, the Legislature can jucQf; and there is no body
of men more competent to judge. For one, I think
they have bad a most important and beneficial agency
in all these respects; and the nation owes to them
much of its prosperity for the last twenty years, uur
legislation proceeds on the supposition that he peo
ple, at 'least a large portion of them, can read.
Otherwise there woald be no sense in giving them a
printed Constitution, and laws; nor allowing them the
Hght of suffrage, or to sit on juries; and the experi
ment thus far shows that they can be thus governed,
and well governed.
' A' comparison of this naden with others in this
ocean, may serve in some degree to show the value of
r-ur free schools. Place the Hawaiian people side by
side with others of the same color, similar language,
and habits; take, for instance, those of the S-jciety
Inlands, and which has the advantage ? The latter
enjoyed all the appliances of Christianity, for more
than twenty years, before they were intniluced here,
and professedly fcecame Christians, and many of them
have learned to read; but, if I am correctly informed,
i hey have had no regular system of free schools, em
bracing all their children ana youth, and giving a
i-oamori school education-to- all; and if I am at all
correctly informed, as respects government, wealth.
Industry, skill, intelligence and general prosperity,
they would suffer much in comparison with the in
habitants of this group.
'.; In" the Report fit the Board of Education of the city
of New York, for 18-56, an argument in favor of the
free school system of that city, is drawn from evidence
presented to the English House of Commons,tAken
from an able pamphlet by the Hon. Edward Twisle
ton, in which he attributes the superior skill and
'access of American seaman over British,. to the
superior elementary instruction the former receive in
the free schools of the Unite! States. .
After arguing that every" advance of the United
States in the education of their people, unaccompanied
by a similar advance among the English, distinctly
adds to the relative power of the former; Mr. Twisle
ton adds, But what I would press on the notice of
all Englishmen, is the effect which the superior educa
tion of the Americans now has, in giving an advan
tage to the commercial marine of the United States
rver oar own. It actually appears that American
ships, in consequence of that superiority, not only
maintained almost invariably, a decided preference
Tver British ships, but generally a higher rate of
weight." " But the really essential point is this,
that owing to judicious laws there has sprung up, on
the other side cf the Atlantic, another nation, of the
same blood, and speaking the same language as our
own, a race of sailors who are equally skillful in their
vocation, and who are at the same time, somewhat
more generally intelligent, and sober than English
tailors. And it is found by experience, that this
difference, together with somewhat of a similar differ
ence in the captains of the two nations, respectively,
tends to give a distinct advantage to their commer
cial marine. Now, fornis inferiority in the English
ailors there seems to be only one Adequate remedy ;
and this is to take care, that our own system of
elementary instruction shall universally, and in every
respect, be jnat as good as in any one of the United
States. (See AnnuU Report of Board of Education
fjr City ofifew York, for ISoG.) -
iSow, the same argument wm hold here in com
paring the Hawaiian race, which has had a svotem of
free school., for seventeen years, with others in this
ocean, as tur instance, the ?Vjc:ety IIanrs, Friendly
Islanders, New Zealandere, who have had I hristian
lty without a system oi puoiic echoois, not indeed in
respect to their skill as seamen, but in the general
scale of improvement. Wherein the Hawaiians have
the advantage, in comparison, is owing to the fact, in
s great degree, that througlour school system, all
the people ars taught, mot. -? less, to read and write
and cypher at least ; and nue the masses have been
operated upon largely through the press, and can be
governed by a written constitution and laws. -
TVat our free school system ,has contributed very
generally a'so, to the promotion of good government
is ndWiuable. .The very fact that the children, from
lour to fourteen years of age, are so generally collec
ted for, say two-thirds of the year, into the schools
and there not only taoght, but subjected to some dis
cipline, and mads to feel that there is such a thing as
law. prepares them to become a law abiding people;
and this is actually the character or our people.
Thev learn to bear the yoke in their youth. Who
bears of the natives taking the law into their own
hands, or breaking out into riots, or rebellion against
the authorities? When a native feels himself ag.
grieved. nis first thought is to have recourse to the
authorities. If be gains his case, well ; if not he stops
there, and bears his disappointment as well as he can.
He is fund of litigation it is true, but so long as he is
completely subject to law he is harmless. This law
abiding disposition is no doubt, in a great measure,
owing to onr free schools.
While in California, last year, I often heard our
Hawaiians, who are living there, spoken of in terms
. of high ceatmendation, as faithful laborers and peace
able, law abiding citizens; all able to read their own
lanajvage, mm never arraigned before toe courts.
Bat it may be a question whether a larger "propor
tion of the school revenue ought not to be appropri
ated vo teaching the people the Ijiglisb language
The Board is of opinion that it should : and if the
Legislature is of the same opinion, it will only be
necessary so to modify the taw, as to authorize the
. Board, to appropriate a portion or the school tax, in
this war, nnd the thing will be done. Without ma
terially diminishing the advantages the mass of chil
dren enjoy in the free schools, the Board is of opinion
that in some of the districts at least, a considerable
portion of the money derived from the school tax, can
be appropriated to teaching English schools for
natives. Bat the law requires to be altered in order
, is do this. ,.-
The aha of the government should be as it has been.
to impart at least an elementary education, however
kaetrfsetj to every Hawaiian youth, - and until this
can be done in a better language, let it continue to
. lie dsns in their own vernacular tongue, any direct
attempt to supersede which at once, would be as im
politic as it would be impracticable. Were the means
at par command, it would be an unspeakable bless
ing" to have every native child placed in a ' good
English school, sal kept there until it had acquired a
thorough knowledge of what is now, in fact, to a
great extent, the business language of the Islands,
and which would open to its mind new and exbaust
fcs treasures f moral and Intellectual wealth. : But
ac!k to not the fact. The means are not at onr dis
posal. - The entire revenue of the kingdom would
earccry store taan supply the youth of the nation
with good instruction in the English, language; and
the entire sekocl revenue would not more than sap
port throwgh-tfce year, fifty well conduced English
cLocls taught by suitable foreign masters; and these

- - -
even a tolerable knowledge of English; and what in
the mean time would become of the more than seven
thousand children that must be left without any
government provision whatever, for their education ?
The idea, therefoie, of abandoning all instruction
in the native language in the schools at once and
confining our educational efforts to the introduction
of the English language among the natives, however
well it may answer for newspaper talk, will not be
entertained by any sober minded man, much less by
grave and wise legislators, under existing circum
etances. . The language of a nation is a part of its
very being and never was and never will be changed
except by a very gradual process. That of Hawaii
ans is no exception to the general rule. .. r.
During my late visit to the United SUtes, I vLsited
the schools and colleges, wherever I had an opportu
nity; and collected some valuable statistics, and
other information in regard to them, which I intended
to embody here, but as it would swell this report to
an inconvenient length, I omit it; but shall insert it
in an appendix, or give it to the public in some other
2d, tub select schools.
The Sejiixary at Lahaixaixsa. Rev. John F. ,
Pogue, Principal; Rev. Claudius B. Andrews, In
structor; I Aholo, Tutor;. Trustees, 1. Nshaole
lua, C. S. Bartow, J. F. Pogue.
The annual reports of the Trustees for the last two
years, marked K 1 and E 2, and also the financial
accounts extending from April 1, 1856, to Dec. 81,
1837, marked K 8 and K 4, are herewith enclosed.
From the latter it will be setn how the annual appro
priation of 4,000 for that institution has been ex
pended. - The school year of this Seminary begins on the first
Monday in July; there are three terms during the
year, two f 13 and one of 14 weeks. The studies
have been about as formerly, consisting of civil and
church history, natural and moral philosophy,
chronology, Hawaiian Constitution and Laws, polit
ical economy, mathematics, astronomy, the Bible,
composition and declamatidh, and the English lan
guage. The number of students has varied from 70
to 80. They are divided into four classes.
The Trustees sp:ak of their progress as very satis
factory, and their general conduct as good, though
six were expelled during the last year for bad beha
vior, and one for indolence. The health of the pupils
has been generally remarkably good, but during the
epidemic last year the scholars suffered severely
although none of them d.ed; one only was removeu
from the school on account of sickness.
One great cause of the firm health of these native
youth is their occupation, for at least three hours
each day, iu he cultivation of the sail, for their own
advantage. The institution owns a nne tract oi saio
land near by, aud from this the pupils derive their
fool and a large part of their living, by the labor of
their own hands. The Trustees speak of these kalo
t-lats as in a fine state of cultivation. Iu fact, the
industry cf the pupils in thus providing for their own
wants reflects great credit upon tnem anu ineir
teachers, more especially as they generally work so
cheerfully, and iu this way find a pleasaut relief from
study and an invaluable preservative of health, to say
nothing of its effect upon their future characters as
practical men. The kalo lands were greatly injured
by a freshet lat year and were repaired by the stu
dents themselves, at great labor, under the direction
of Mr. Andrews.
As these native youths are generally poor and
obliged, in a great measure, to support themselves,
away from their parents, the Trustees think it ban!
that they should be obliged to pay taxes, and suggest
that they in future be released from such obligation.
The Legislature will no doubt take the subject into
consideration, not only in reference to these students,
but to all youth under age, especially those setting
A general catalogue of this institution from its
commencement is in progress or preparation, and l .
hope to be able to print it in an appendix to this re
1 he buildinis are in tolerably cood order, but need
some repairing to make them comfortable aud conve
The Trustees ask for only S'3,700 to carry cn the
school durine next year, as follows :
For pay of teachers, S-JJW.
For incidental expenses', loO.
For repair of buildings, SloO.
This is 6S0O less than the usual grant, but they
would like also a small amount to complete the stone
wall around the land belonging to the school.
This institution has furnished to the nation many
of its most worthy sons, and should continue to re
ceive a vigorous support.
The Rotal School. Maurice B. Beckwith, Prin- (
From the report of the Principal for the last two
years, ending on the 31st of March last, it appears
that durine that period the whole number received
in the school was 94; of these 72 were boys and '22
girls; 19 were whites, 8 half-castes, 67 pure natives.
The following table will exhibit the number in at
tendance, each term, absence, tardiness, &c.

The average number of pupils for the whole time is
40.75, the average daily fitteri-lince SG.88, average
absence 3.87, average tarJiness .94.
The teacher in his report says' " the ahsences ns
ahove recordel are in a greit part those of pupils who
entered the school after the commencement c f a term.
Were such absences deducted, the ftsregate would lie
re-luced more than one-half." " When it is un.lcr
fctood," lie also adds, " tlvit a larjie number of tho
pupils irside at a distance of one to three miles from
the school, there will be fotind but little cause for
complaint in repard to attendance. But a single case
of truancy worthy of mention has occurred during
the two years covered by this report, and that was ef
fectually cured soon after its discovery."
Of those who are now members of the school a con
siderable portion have been so during the whole two
years past, and a large portion almost two years.
They all had had more or less instruction in the Eng
lish language previous to entering the Royal School,
and were selected for this school because of their suc
cess in study and good promise, so that there has been
time to test pretty fairly their ability to acquire the
Enelish language and of its value to them.
The result so far is very satisfactory. The school
was publicly examined in June, 1867, and the ex
amining comOttee gave their meet unqualified testi
mony to the success of the teacher in imparting, and
the pupils in acquiring the English language, and
through it a well-grounded primary education. The
bet evidence the Legislature can have of this success,
however, will be, while in wsion, to visit the school
"either individually or by committee, and see for them
selves. The chnracter of the Royal School has been some
what modified since my last report. Finding the more
advanced pupils in the English schools for natives re
tarded in their progress by the want of a more special
instruction and thorough drilling than they could
have in those schools, where there are so many classes
and new besrinners, the Board of Education opened the
Royal School to such as were prepared to enter any
of its several classes, charging them only the same
amount or tuition that they paid in the primary Eng
lish schools, and requiring the parents to enter into
a written obligation to board them, furnish them with
books and stationery, and place them for the time
being under the control of the President while out of
school as well as in; also instructing the teacher to
aim, not only to give them the English language, but
teach them how to impart it to others, ana thus,
due time, to raise up a class of natives to do the worlc
which now can be done by foreigners only. This
gives the Royal School the character of a normal
school, ju.t the thing needed to insure success in
giving the English language to the Hawaiian nation.
This plao has been steadily pursued, and works well.
It has already remedied, as has been shownf the evil
of irregular attendance, and secured complete subjec
tion, on the part of the pupils, to the rules of the
school aa well as regulated their conduct while out of
Another object has been to prepare the more prom
ising of the scholars to enter the preparatory depart
ment of Oahu College, which is open to all who shail
exhibit the necessary qualifications for entrance.
Several of the boys do, it Is thought, possess such
qualifications now, and it is hoped they will enter
that institution next year. If they do not, the fault
will be their own, or that of their parents.
The Legislature of late years has made no appro
priation for this important institution, and the Board
has sustained it partly from the tuition fees, partly
from the rents of the old Royal School premises, and
partly from the interest accruing on the school fund.
The salary of the teacher is $1,800 a year, and the
incidental expenses have ben about $105 75 for tho

Teaciieb. The report of the Honolulu Sahool Com
mittee herewith enclosed, marked U, exhibits this in
stitution as having enjoyed its usual degree of pros
perity during the last .two yrtirs, ending Dec. 81,
1857. The average attendance during the year 1856
was forty-one; the number in the school during the
year 1856, sixty-four boys and twenty-three girls. -During
the year 1857. the average attendance was
fifty. The whole number received, seventy-six fifty
eight boys and eighteen girls.
The amount received from the parents for tuition
during the year 185G, was 120' 5; and the amount
expended on repairs, books, kc, during the same,:
was S11S H -
The amount received for the tuition, during 1857,'
was S7G 25, and tho expenses for repairs, 06 7U.
There was in the hands of the. Treasurer of the
school, at the close of 1857, $143 15. There is also
a mortgage on real estate amounting to aooutsi-vv.
How much will be realized from it is uncertain uui
whatever it may be, the income to be derived from it
will be devoted to the interests of the school.
The income from the local Honolulu school-tax on
foreign residents for the year 1856. was S1.610 43,
and foithe year 1857, is estimated at 81.350.
Important improvements have been made in the in
ternal arrangements of the school house, which con
tribute much to the comfort of both teacher ana
The annual salary paid from the government treas
ury has been 1,500, being the amount appropriated
by the Legislature.
There has been a ffood deal of complaint on the
part of some, on account of the bove school-tax dur
ing past years, and the Board of Education cordially ,
unite with the School Committee in petitioning the
Legislature to make some other suitable provision for
the support of this school, should your honorable
body deem the objection to the present law well
grounded. The great objection seems to be taxing
foreigners more heavily than natives. That the school
has, and is, exerting a great and good influence on
the community, there can be no doubt. It embraces
a class of children, many of whom could not obtain
even an elementary education in any other way, and
if neglected, caimot fail to exert a most deleterious in
fluence on society. .

The Panama Rail-Road Company takes this method
jKjiif of info.-ming those interested in the Whaling busi-3gg3L-
nesa, of the advantages offered y the Railroad
across the Isthmus of lanaroa, for the shipment of
Oil from tlie Pacific to the I nited States, and for sending out
fits and supplies from the United States to Panama.
The Railroad has been in regular and successful operation for
more than two years, and Its capacity for the transportation of
every description of merchandise, including Oil, Provisions, 4c.,
ha been fully tested. The attention of several Captains of
whdleships has recently been turned to the subject of shipping
their oil from Panama to New York during the present season,
and the Panama R iil-Road Company has made arrangements
to afford every f.icilitjj which may lie required for the accom
plishment of UiU important object. A I'ier, 450 feet long, has
been built in the bay of Panama, to the end of which freight
Cars are run to receive cargoes from lighters or vessels lying
alongside, and deliver the same alongside of vessels at Aspin
walL Vessels of from 200 to 300 tons can lie at the Pier with
