Mcch baa been said of late re-pecting the adapt
edne of Hakodadi and other Japanese ports
depots where -whale ships iaaj recruit. We
have made, frequent inquiries of captains who
have visited Japan, touching generally at the
shove named port, where the American Consul is
located. The impression generally received there
by shipmasters is a favorable one. They all
speak highly of the port of Hakodadi ; and the
treatment received from Japanese officers and
Others with whom they came in contact, was
courteous, and in no sense annoying. We judge,
however, from all the information we can gather,
that the pleasure of a sojourn there or a visit
arises more from the novelty of the scenes met
with than from any superior advantages offered
for recruiting ; for on this score it would appear
that there are many disadvantages.
Knowing that Capt. Asa Taber, of the whale
ship Adeline, of "ew Bedford, wintered in the
port of Hakodadi last year, in company with
Capt. West of the Rapid, we requested him to j
furnish us with some facts in relation to his visit j
there, which he has done. leaving Cape Eliza
beth in the Ochotsk Sea, in' company with the
Rapid, Oct. lst,lS57, they steered f-mth through
the Saghalien Sea for Perouse Straits, and in the
passaga encountered heavy gales and bad weather
generally. Passed through the Straits Uct. um
a thick fog, seeing no land espt a rock which
iios in the passage. "After passing the Straits they 'value impressed on them in Japanese charac
had the fame heavy weather and gales, mostly tern. Although one of the above gold pieces
from the S. W., which was dead ahead, and ar- j 3 rated in Japan as of the same value as
rived at Hakodadi on the 22d Oct.. after a pas- J the thirty-two cent silver piece, which is about
aagVof twenty-two days an averag passage I double its weight, the mint value of the gold
from the Ochotsk to Honolulu. Capt. Taber i piece in America would be about 2 50. The
thinks, however, that the page can be made in im-t singular feature in the Japanese currency is
from ten to fifteen days. We quote the letter : j the 1 w value of gold compared with 6wver. This is
"About twenty ruiuutes afier wo had anchoreJ.tUe : caused, we are told, not by any greater abun
Japane officials mtlensa risit, and I was quite ; dance of gold there than in Euro, but by the
surprised to e such a nolle and intelligent looking 'value being thus fixed by law, and sanctioned
people. Upon arriving on bonrl, tbe interpreter in- ; by usage. So long as traffic with foreigners was

beinstold that we can in lor supplies iur our amp
and people, he asked, What kind or supplies we
vanled ? I told him tbat wo should want wood and
water, fresh meat and vegetables, together with the
prod acts of the country generally. This was made
known by the interpreter to the high officer in attend
ance, who made known to us through the anae me
dium that we should hare ererTtbing we wanted tbat
the country affcrdeJ. and they all appeared much
pleased with our visit to their country, and quite as , iony cenia un a u "
much with their visit on bonr l our ahip. We were for trade, excepting Mexican dollars, which latter
therefor weired with a hearty welcome, and a free coin is about the legal'Japanese standard of fine
pass giren to come and fto whenever we liked; and I Dess; but as no foreign coins can pass, except by
would here say that the government, from the time
we arrived until our departure, did as they said they
would, all they could to make us comfortable while
there, and furnished us with all necessary supplies.
We found that we eoakl obtain most of the necea
nrf supplies that ships stand in need of. First, we
got fresh beef. bein. tbe first, as I was informed, fur
nished to any merchant or whale ship. Tbe beet is
tender and verr tweet, and costs about eight cents

abewt one-fourth tbe cost of oar goods, and when we

M There might be a great deal more said about tbe
Japanese that would appear strange to us; but t hope
to find them store enlightened, and less exclusive,
ahoold I visit them again, which I Lope to do." -
In regard to beef and other animal areata, Mr.
Heeko, the Japanese on board tbe Fennimert
Cooper, informs as that cattle are sacred. Ac
cording to the Japanese religion, all animals that
atter a sound are held as sacred, and never killed
for food. Hence faithful Japanese never eat beef,
venwoo, perk, veal, mutton, nor bird of any
description. Their food is confined to vegetables,
grains, principally rice, eggs and fish. Mr. II
informs us that be never tasted beef till he visited
Anterica. That, as well as other meats, is consider
ed as filthy, and viewed as we view dog and eat'
meat.' Tbe Japanese, however, will furnish cattle
and fowls to foreigner, but da not like to kill
any animals. 1 - '' :s'!'4.

abundant, and also the sweet potato. They have
also a vegetable of a long and slim shape, which
looks like some variety of potato, bat tastei
much like taro. The Iriah potato has been in
troduced only within a few years, and is cultivated
mostly about Eakodadi for the use of ships. The
climate of Japan being cold in winter, onr
whaleahips wnich generally touch in the spring,
visit that country in the worst season of the year
to procure -yegetables. However,-jotetoes will,
doubtless, be abundant in a few years... . .',
,PerhapB the greatest obstacle to a free exchange
of commodities with the Japanese is tbe currency.
The sacrifice or discount made on foreign coins
will prevent whalemen from trading or procuring
supplies to any great extent as long as it exists.
From Mr. Heeko, we have gathered some facts In
regard to the currency which may be of service
to captains visiting those ports. - The standard of
Japanese coins is regulated by the.. Imperial Go
vernment, while the Departmental or State
Governments are alone empowered to issue paper
money, which varies in value from 10 to 1000
cash. There are copper, silver and gold coins,
three of each kind. The copper coins are flat, and
of an oval shape, with a square or oblong hole
in the center, and are of the value of one, four,
and one hundred cash. The cash is the unit of
Japanese currency, and though only of the value
of l-10th of a cent, corresponds in their currency
system with our mill. -
There are three silver coins, of an oblong shs pe,
flat, and about the thickness of a half dollar. We
represent the sixes below, with their value in
Mexican or pure silver.
39 Cent a.
The largest silver coin above (called c-che-loo)
takes the same place in the Japanese currency
tht the dollar docs : in the American, the
! smaller coins being halves and quarters.
The gold coins are three also, v iz.
iThew cold, silver and copper coins have their
annovance would be felt in the standard ot gold and
' silver, even though they were fixed by government
at the same value weight for weight ; but as
1 soon as the European standard of the two metals
' is brought into contact with tho Japanese, it
J causes confusion and loss. For the present for
eigners have to bear the loss of eighty cents on a

The Japanese appear to be expert in refining
gold and silver. When silver is tendered, they
: will recoin it into their standard coins, and re
turn it to the foreigner, charging for their ser
vices six per cent. The foreigner, however, has
: to submit not only to this coinage charge, but to

Tone, AS it tarns a page in the Journal." in which
j tt,d business of the year ould be reviewed, old
accounts closed np, and debts paid off. Every
one ouht. if nossibie. to beein tbe new vear
J h rtlement or old debts, and let tbe ledger
bear a clean face. In a place where credits are
so common as here in Honolulu, this is of special
importance. A clerk, a mechanic, or a mer
chant cannot tell what bis expenses hare been
without a full settlement of bis accounts; and
not knowing whether bis expenses for the old
year have been beyond or within his income, bis
plans for tbe new must be very indefinite. No
person, no matter bow small or large may be his
income, can expect to succeed in life without
limiting his expenses within his receipts. There
are very few men who do not receive sufficient to
support tbem comfortably, if tbey regulate their
habits and style of living to their income. On
this subject we find some remarks in an annual
which may be seasonably inserted here :

ple who can't imagine why they don't prosper like
their neighbora, when tbe real obstacle is not ia basks
nor tariSs, ia bad policy nor hard tames, bat in their
own extravagance and. heedless ostentation- The
yowag ateehaate or clerk mariics and takes a boose,
which he proceeds to furnish twice ss expensively as
he eaa afford, and then his wife, instead of taking
bold to help him earn a Uvetihood by doing her own
work, must have a aired servant to help him spend
his Titaited earnings. ' Ten years afterward yon will
find him straggling on under a doable load of debts
and children, wondering why the lack was always
against him, while his friends regret his unhappy
deatitarioa of finaoctal ability. Had tbey from tbe
first been frank and honest, he need not have been so
aalncky. . , ,

NOTES OF THE WEEK.-
' CHaisraAS-passed ofiF iu the good old fashioned,
style.' The eve was ushered in by the assemblage,
about" 7 o'clock, of a large number of children and
their parents at Washington Place, the Mansion of
Mrs. Dominia, where Santa Clans had given out that
be would bold his -ooart, and distribute the gifts
which he had ordered for the occasion. A magnifi
cent 44 Christmas Tree" bad been provided in one of
the upper chambers, and the little folks, at they'
gathered about it with sparkling eyes and clattering
tongues, found it all lighted up with candles, and tbe
branches bending under the weight of gifts. Prom pt
as old father Time ever was, the bells were beard at
the windows announcing : - ' ; - ' '
44 A miniature sleigh witt eight tiny reindeer, ' ' ' ' "
With a little oil driver so hrdy and queer"
In a moment old Santa Claus was heard At the door,
and in a twinkling more he stood before the youthful
group, who greeted him with a volley of merry shouts.
He came dressed in the garb in which children love to
imagine the saintly old elf. ., . . ,
Me was dressed all In fur from his head to his foot.
And his clothes were an tarnished with ashes and soot
A bundle uftys L had Sung on his back.
And be looked like a pedJler, opening his pack.
Bis eyes, how they twinkled ! his dimple, how merry !
Bis cheeks were like roses ; his nne like s cherry ;
Ilil droll little month was drawn up like a bow,
, .. And his beard 00 his chia was as white as the soow. '
A wink of his rye and a twist of his h-ad.
Soon cava tbem to know they had noUiing to dread."
For an hour, or while he was bestowing his gifts
with princely lavishness among the hundred chil
dren present, there wasoueof the happiest groups
ever witnessed in Honolulu. He bid a gift for every
one, and bestowed it with a facetiousness that Added
much to the enjoyment of the occ ision and g-inel
him a hast of friends among the juveniles, who will
long continue to talk of Sjnt t Cltus of Washington
riace. After the tree was lightened of its burden of
presents, some of which we noticed were quite oostly,
the old s tint bid the little folks a hearty good-bye
and vanished :
u He sprang to bis sleigh, to his team he rare a whistle.
And away thry ail flew likt the djwn of a thistle ;
But I hrari him exclaim, ere be drove out of sight,
Merry Ciinstoi to ali, aad to all a rood night-'"
The whole affair was got up and executed with gool
taste. After the gifts were distributed the childreu
weie invited to a liberal repast prepared by the gen
erous hostess. As the little folks retired to their
homes their places were filled with an assemblage cf
ladies and gentleuien, and the evening was spent in
dancing. At 10 o'clock on Christmas forenoon the
Episcopal service was performed by Rev Mr. Arthy.
on board the Calypso, which had been gaily decked
for the holiday. At half past eleven Episcopal ser
vice was also performed by the same gentleman at the
Bethel, which was well filled. .. .

to observe the movements of American whalers.

j solely in private whaling enterprises, and his return
to Russia is for the puipuseef procuring one or more

excel, and that is ia the skill displayed in moving
buildings. We have frequently had instances of this.
One occurred oa Monday last, ia the removal of a
dwelling house, about 45x80 feet dimensions, from
tbe former Swinton premises on King Street to the
Catholic Mission premises. The building was raised
and placed oa four iron-wheeled trucks, and with the
aid of horse power and a gang from the prison, moved
through the streets in tea hours, without damage to
the road or the building. The job was executed un
der tbe superiatendance of Mr. Lewera.
