iC f assr MOMrf considerable Isaportance,
aa it oas Uta fetor eiMMKW prosperit of oar Wands.
rrted by mm that it ia difficult to procars
i to work on ear plantation, aad that aa there Is do
BtuspsU of resort setae ajsio,had to the importation of Cool Is
Ittoui, ear piamaUoos aad other agricultural Interests cannot
i iaereaat to any pal extent. Laborers ia every branch of In
4osry are aa absolute necessity. Hitherto, cor whaling inter
s have not sosered from any seareity, and we hare been able
bbbsi not only oar ova whaling and coasting fleets, bat also
pare aB the seamen called for toe foreign whalers, at the nsuR
wages. Ia this branch there has been no' scarcity, aad we are
1 - - - sjalta as confident that there will be none in other branches.
Tere are oa this l land alone Urge numbers of able-bodied men
--.'.1-. ViUmst steady employ stent, who, if satisfied as to their wares,
are ready to engage as laborers on oar plantations. In fact, we
hare heard it staled that natives about Honolulu in some eases
. i -. i arc starring tar want cf esnplojnvent. Their mode of Bring on,
- rather bearing their Bring from, their more industrious rela
tives, prevents foreigners seeing and bearing more of the destitu
tion that actually exists.
Bat a fcw weeks ago, the agents here of one of the Chinese
plantation at Ililo, engaged some thirty or more hearty laborers,
at from Ore to six dollars per month, for a term of two years,
they to he furnished with tenements. An sgent of one of the
foreis-n plantations oa that island, also, made a similar shipment
v ' . ' of bhorers by the last packet thither on similar terms, and we
are assured that no difficulty exists in procuring all the laborers
wanted. And where plantations are eoudoeted with judicious
aamcnoent of Ibm satire laborers, U is probbr that no trvuUe
can , arise in -the question of labor. Indeed, it is likely that
twenty new plantations could be supplied with all the workmen
The p-tst week has exhibited some of the activity of our re
tarninf busy season. Arrivals have been frequent, and the bar
ker has assumed it autumnal aspect. Two whalers arrived at
this port both with small fares and meagre reports from the
Kodiaek groond. Their reports will be found under our marine
I r " r ; r Cp lAit evening, no further arrivals at Lahaina or Hilo had
occurred. Two whalers are reported aa in the channel yester
day bound ia, and will probably arrive to-day.
The clipper ship Fifing Eagle arrived from San Francisco
oa the 10th, with a fcw days later intelligence. She comes seek-
lag freight and will probably load oil or take up a guano cbar
jwx," ter.
The Baduga, bow discharging cargo, win proceed to HUo in a
few days, there to load oQ and bone for the United States.
we notice that our contemporary ia busy opening up a new
branch of trade, and Investigating the market value of whale
skaletnna, which in the "refined state," are said to be worth
omewhere about 1400 per ton ! It seems strange that some of
or whalemen don't Jump at the opening, and secure their for
tune ia this new business, instead of making strrnwsy, blubber
x aarvey was held yesterday oa the whaling bark Caroline
ef Grace port, but the surveyors came to no conclusion in regard
teher. They ordered her cargo to be discharged, when the tur
rry win be resumad. She ia aa eld ship, bait about 1828. and
la fjoor condition. The probability is that she win be condemn

In the California Christian Advocate we find
published an extract from a letter by Rev. J.
Maclay, dated May 15th, 1859," in relation to
the Roman Catholic Mirision at these Islands ;
and as it is always interesting to know what peo
ple abroad hear of our institutions," we make
the following quotations :
The Romanists are making powerful efforts to
supplant the Congregational Churches of these Isl
ands. They have recently landed on these shores,
from Sooth America, ten Sisters of Mrcy of the
Sacred Heart, and two priests, which, cJdi to those
already here, make a pretty formidable corps. They
have a bishop residing here. Their mission has been
established and is supported by France. They have
an appropriation of two hundred thousand dollars
annually from France. With this they can carry on
pretty extensive operations in the way of establishing
schools and churches Their arrival at this time, if'
not previously arranged and designed, is very oppor
tune for them. The Legislature, which baa just
closed its session, has authorized the establiwh merit of
marine hospital for indigent natives.
It is apprehended that the management of this insti
tution may be given to these Sisters of Mercy, for you
know bow insinuating they are, and what a name
they have as nurses.
The government of these islands, or tne civil gov.
eminent rather, has changed its poncy toward the
Romish Church. Some years ago they were inter,
dieted by law, and their priests sent awaj; now the
daozer lies in the ether extreme. The government
seems to look with favor on their enterprises. The
Protestantism and Puritanism of the Hawaiian Gov.
era merit is not nnlikely to be supplanted by the pomp
ous and imposing worship of the saints. The sim
plicity and purity of evangelical worship is not suffi
ciently attractive to minds unaccustomed to spiritual
exercises; proscription for opinion's sake, however,
is bad policy, it is sure to react. Sooner or later.tbe
proscribed party will be io sympathy. Bitter experi
ence baa taught Rome a lesson she will not forget,
and which ber wily Jesuits are now using with tell
ing effect. Her martyrdoms were amon her gravest
errors. These female laborers of the Romish Church
Ibrro. the most efficient department of ber aggressive
agencies. They are quiet, unostentatious and unob
trusive. The sick-room they softly enter, around the
bed of death they gather, with the sufferer they
watch, the stranger they take in and feed. These
acts are not forgotten, they are like tbe silent, irre
sistaMa leaven east into the meaL Their educational
facilities are great, and io this department Bme dis
plays her wisdom. The Protestant Mission of tbe
American Board here committed a fundamental error,
io not commencing to teach tbe natives, from tbe
very first, the English language, and this ought to
be the ohject of every foreign mission.
The Romish Church, at tbe, very outset here, com
menced to teach to tbe natives the French language,
by this means they are almost certain to succeed in
winning their pupils to their church.
Bomanism would gladly checK and stop tne progress
of the English language; its stores of hUtory let in
too much light upon ber past deeds, its rich and sub
lime discoveries in nature and art, undermine ber
claims to a reasonable pre-eminence. They are bound
to contest here fiercely tfce claims of Protestantism,
and dispute inch by inch tLs road to dominion."
Tbe above passage; contain a number of errors
in fact ; and it is not just or proper that they.
should go abroad to the world wi;-:t correction. '

kingdom , not from the Government of France,
m has been stated, (although that Government
ha taken a lively interest - in its establishment
here,) but from a general Mission Society called
" The Institution for the propagation of the
Faith. This Society, which is established under
the auspices of the Holy See, has two Central
Committees, the one at Paris and the other at
Lyons, in France, whose especial duty it is to
direct the missionary labor, and to receive and
disburse the necessary funds. Branches of the
Society are established throughout the civilized
world, for the purpose of directly overseeing and
carrying on the work. As Oceanica comprised
too large a field for the efforts of a single branch
Society, it was decided, some thirty-one years
a v a. . - a
ago, to divide it into two icariaies Apos
tolic" called Eastern and Western Oceanica.
Western Oceanica was assigned to the Society of
Mary, and the evangelization of Eastern Ocean
ica,. including tne oanawicn isianas, was con
fided to the ' Congregation of the Sacred Hearts
of Jesus and Mary, known under the name of
The funds of the " Institution for the propaga
tion of the Faith" are raised chiefly by small sub
scriptions. In the English branch, for example,
each member is required to pay a half penny a
weekl One person is charged to receive the sub
scriptions of ten, the amount of which he hands
over to another, who receives ten similar con
tributions equivalent to a hundred subscriptions.
The funds thus raited, swelled by such voluntary
contributions as may be received, are transmitted
to the Central Committees in France, and by
them distributed among the fields' of labor
throughout the world, according to the necessi
ties of the different missions. In theyear 1858,
the total receipts of the Society were $1,366,013.
The amount paid out was $912,288, some of
which went to different parts of Europe, some to
Asia, some to Africa, and some to North and
S.nth Amcrimi TriA miaainna nf Onnnira.'n.
! ceived for their share. $80.821 or only about
3 two-fifths of the amount stated in the above let
ter to be paid over to the Hawaiian Islands alone.
The amount actually disbursed to the Hawaiian
Island Mission was about $14,000, some $6,000
of which were devoted to defraying the traveling
expenses of the Sisters of Charity and two of the
priesthood who landed on our shores a few months
since leaving but $8,000 for the expcn proper
of the Mission. The amount appropriated for
the Mission in the previous year, 1857, was
We have said that the ramifications of the
parent Society, under the auspices of which so
many Catholic missions are carried on, extend
throughout the world. They reach even to the
remote corners of the globe, including Cb.ina.and
Tartary. In the list of contributors to its treas
ury, and recipients of its bounty, we find the
names of most of the South American States, the
Ionian Isles, the Levant, Madagascar, Algiers,
Cayenne, Senegal, Ceylon, and the East Indies.
Oceanica pays in regularly about $600 a year
to the common fund.
Probably most of our readers are familiar
with the present position and progress of the
Catholic Mission in our group, it comprises
nineteen priests, at the head of whom stand the
Rt. Rev. Lewis Maigret, D. D,, Bishop of Arathie,
and- Vicar Apostolic of the Sandwich Islands.
Of this body, eight are on the Island of Oahu,
five on Hawaii, four on Maui, and two on Kauai.
Seven bisters of the bacred Heart also reside in
Honolulu. There are scattered among the isl
ands twenty-five regular mission stations liesides
many other stations, supplied with native chapels,
and visited occasionally by members of the priest
The " Institution for the propagation of the
Faith" is, we think, the largest missionary es
tablishment in the world. Its organization is
very perfect, and its working, managed as it is
by one central body, is very effective. The Soci
ety is a notable illustration of what ' systematic
benevolence" will do, when fully acted out. In
case a promising field of labor occurs in any part
of the world, men, selected with a view to their
fitness for that particular field, are immediately
sent to the spot. Devoted, as many of them are,
to the religion which they profess, and zealous in
the work of promulgating a faith which, from its
external surroundings, is peculiarly attractive to
the untutored mind, it is no matter of surprise
that they should succeed as they have done.
Religious proscription has been tried in some
cases, to counteract their influence, but proscrip
tion for opinion's sake, is, as Mr. Maclay says in
t his letter, " bad policy it is si re to re-act."
t Misrepresentation, too, is bad policy for it is
sure to be exposed in the long run , and in many
cases creates a feeling the very opposite from
what was intended,

Truth is the most effective
Patient pcrseveranco in
well doing is sure to receive its ultimate reward.

divergent religions placed before them, the great

f" Our readers may expect that we should
say something in regard to the melancholy affair
which occurred at Lahaina on Sunday last.
But there are so many vague rumors afloat, that
we forbear for the present giving any version of it.
A New Bcot. We learn that Capt. Barras, of the
I schooner ITalama, on his last trip to Hawaii, success
fully laid a buoy at the anchorage near Keawaiki,
(little harbor,) Kaupakuea, Hilo, and landed there
a heavy sugar-mill for Mr. Met calf's plantation,
without difficulty or damage, and that, too, in quire
rough weather. This conduct reflects great credit
upon Capt. B. as a skillful seaman, particularly as
he is a new cruiser on that route. The buoy is a
large cask, painted black, with proper fixings on top
to fasten to, and is about two cables length east of the
landing or harbor, and lays in seventeen fathoms
water. It is sandy bottom all round in the vicinity
of the buoy, and consequently good anchorage, but
the water deepens rapidly seaward from the buoy.
In mooring, it is only necessary to run a line to the
buoy, andive it 15 or 20 fathoms scope. A four or
five inch rope is all that is required, as there are no
strong currents or winds. There is a boat buoy at
the entrance of tbe harbor, to which a vessel may
moor astern by running a warp. The harbor is still
water, the table rock low, and a derrick rigged to
take things directly from tbe boat. Keawaiki is about
one mile north on tbe Hamakua si le of Makahanaloa
paint, tbe entrance to Hilo bay. We are happy to
chronicle this improvement, which wU be valuable
to coasters. In our last issue we unred the govern
ment's hastening such measures, and though this
buoy has been laid only in part by government aid,
it is none tbe less deserving of credit.
An Omnibus. We note the appearance in our
streets, having arrived by the Raduga, of an omni.
bus, for the use of the Punahou scholars. It isJight
and airy, has seats for ten inside besides outside pas
sengers, and is a great improvement upon the old
wagon. An omnibus arrived, gas coming, and a
steamer expected next spring ! We wait impatiently
to see proposals for an electric telegraph, a railroad,
a submarine tunnel or two, and a balloon express. ., ;

JfaTAU Honolulu baa been, this year, an nnnsu
ally long time without a man-of-war in port. Now,
however, the charm is broken, and as the busy sea
son has commenced, we may expect, before long, to

A Good Swimmer. The schooner Margaret from
Kauai, picked up, on Friday morning last, at a dis
tance of some six or eight miles from Barber's Point,
a native boy by the name of Kamoeone a deserter
from the whale ship Franklin 2d which left this port
. . . . ,
on tne preceding day. Kamoeone. it seems, naa
felt a little homesick when he saw the green moun
tains of Oahu growing dim in tbe distance, and at
about half past seven o'clock on Thursday evening,
he jumped overboard snd struck out for the land-
then about twenty miles distant, as he thinks. He
swam all night, and at daylight was within half a
mile of the shore. Here, however, . he was opposed
by a strong current ; and after buffeting the w aves
for a while in a vain endeavor to reach the beach, he
discovered a sail in the distance, several miles to
leeward. He accordingly changed his course for tbe
vessel, and at nine o'clock on Friday morning was
standing upon her deck, apparently but little the
worse for his fourteen hoars swim.
Congregational Singing. Rev. Mr. Corwin
preached a sermon upon the-desi nihility of congrega
tional singing in our churches, on Sunday evening
last. This is one of the best methods of social wor
shipthe way in which the hearts and voices of
the whole congregation can unite in songs of prayer
and praise to the great Giver of all blessings. Choirs
are entirely done away with now, in many churches
of tbe. States, and congregational music substituted
in their stead the congregation, or those of it who
care to, meeting round occasionally, at different
houses, fur practice. It should be remembered, how
ever, that it is not necessary that cougregatioual
singing should be unanimous- ouly general ; and
those who have neither ear or voice for music, should
leave the matter to others better qualified. We have
known the harmony of church music to be marred.
Sabbath after Sabbath, by the harsh voice of a single
man, who sang, not because he thought he could im
prove the music, but because he considered it a duty
to do his share.
Misplaced Sympathy. A laughable incident oc
curred in Kaabuiuauu street a few days since. A
gentleman passing through the street, observed
a fine looking terrier dog, lyin; prostrate and appa
rently dead, in the path. His limbs were relaxed,
his eyes closed and his tongue protruding a victim
evidently.to the ravages of strychnine. "Poor fellow!"
exclaimed our kind-hearted friend, giving him a little
kick in the side, when to his great astonishment the
dead dog came suddenly to life, with a hoarse growl,
and seized him firmly by the toe of his boot while
a merry laugh, and a cry of "Bold, sold,"from a neigh
boring corner announced that the would-be sympa
thizer, if not the dog, had been " victimized.'
Coolies of .1855. Some of the class of Coolies
which arrived in 1855, are claiming that their time
of service expires next .Monday, which is the date of
the signature of their agreements. Each contract
will, on reference, be found to contain the following
clause : .
'That I will, for and during the term of five years, to boirin and
be axcountrd from the day of my arrival in tbe Sandwich
Islands," Ac.
The bark IVhatcheer, arrived at this port on the
5th of February, 1855, from which date their term of
servitude must be reckoned.

MoosncnT Evenings. Few places can boast
more beautiful moonlight nights than Honolulu, and
there are few places where the moonlight nights are
more generally enjoyed. The moon, which is now on
the wane, has looked down upou riding parties, walk

many a pleasant little verandah group, it has intrud
ed itself into many a cosy little ttte a tile, and we
don't know how many sighs and vows it has listened
to ! There is a great deal of moonshine in Honolulu.

Remarkable. Our coteraporary, after three efforts,

San Francisco, Aug. 24, 1859.
Ma. Eoitob: Hon. Horace Greeley, the renowned
philosopher and patriot of the white coat," arrived
in our city on the 16th inst.. and was publicly re
ceived and conducted to the American Exchange,
where quarters had been provided for him by large
deputations of citizens; all classes and all public
societies uniting to honor him. Among the rest was
quite a deputation of printers, as Horace Greeley is
a printer by trade. On the evening of the 18th he
delivered a lecture before the Mechanics' Institute of
this city, on "Industry and the Mechanic Arts."
On the 20th he lectured on Great Men' in the
American Theater, to a densely crowded house; and
on Sunday he addressed the Dushaways" on the
subject of Temperance." He also addressed the
practical printers of whom there were250 or 800
assembled on the same afternoon. He has visited all
the principal towns and cities of the State, and has
formed a favorable opinion of California. He re
turns home, in a few days, by the southern overland
mail route, and will thus have an opportunity of
compariug the advantages of each route, 'He is a
firm advocate of the Pacific Railroad enterprise.
The political cauldron is Mill boiling and seething,
and there is no lack of fuel to keep the fires going,

on tne itia inst. to aiscussjne r. nanroai question.
There were five thousand persons in attendance; all
enthusiastic in the cause. Horace Greeley was the

unanimously adopted, urging upon Congress the
necessity of the immediate construction of the work,
and representing the dangers or delay. .

again. A battle had been fought between a large
force of Indians and a body of U. S. troops under
Major Armistead, which resulted in the defeat of the
Indians, with a loss of 50 or 60 killed. The loss of
the U. S. troops was very slight.
A singular case of murder occurred on the nisrht of

Keefe, with a pair of scissors ! Barmore was walking
home to his house on Folsora Street, when two men
drove up behind hm in a buggy. He stepped out of
the way, but they seemed determined to run over
him. Angry words ensued, and soon Keefe got out
of the bupgy to fijzht. Barmore says he did not re
member that he had the scissors in his hand; and
that he struck Keefe with them unconsciously.

Mr. Editor: I notice you published a communi

wholesale and retail, and sundry peccadilloes for
want of any license at all; and I second the sugges

on the subject, not in a solid mass among other
laws, but give us tbe law by itself, or if that is too
long, give us a synopsis of it, in brief, that all who
ell may do so understanding, and not subject them
selves to a fine for selling illegally.
There is a peculiar propriety, now, in protecting
those who honestly pay for their privilege of selling,
because the government is imposing a very heavy,
and hitherto unknown, burthen upou the business
community, in the shape of additional fees at the
Custom House, for entries, taxes upon merchandise
in store, an increase in the amount paid for licenses,
and, after a few months, an enormous increase 6n
duties. And if the government is not willing to
keep a close watch or those who sell illegally, and
thus protect the license-payers, if is not doing its
duty, and is not worth the cost of supporting tL

in this respect, but not by any means so badly off, as
this writer would have us believe,
But why have two English schools on that island
been suspended ? In part, from the want of funds
in the treasury during a portion of the year 1856, to
meet the drafts of the local directors, but more espe
cially from a failure on the part of parents to pay up,
A glance at the figures in the Report of the Board of
Education for 1858, will show this : The amount
actually paid in by private parties having greatly
diminished, and the government being restricted by
law tJ pay the same amount, the tcichers had not
sufficient encouragement, turned to other business.
and the schools of course were given up. This has
been the ease, not on Hawaii only, but elsewhere, and
here has been just the weak spot in this whole
machinery for supporting English schools for natives.
It is so still. So long as half of the support of any
school must come from private sources, it will be
precarious, and success douhtful. If our law-makers
are really in earnest to introduce the English language
to the natives, they must furnish our school officers
with money sufficient to place this most important
class of our schools on a permanent basis, and employ
that talent that will make them efficient. True, the
natives are not backward to kokua, as " Hawaii"
says. He should have rather said, they are not back

form, to pay up, is quite another thing, especially in
most remote districts. Even thoueh the amount re
quired of them is small, not generally over S10 a
vear, it becomes burdensome after a time; the child
ren too find it to be a long up hill, steady pull, as
many youth do who undertake to learn Latin and
Greek; they gel tired of the task and drop it.
As to the fling at the Board of Elucation for
devoting all its attention to keeping up tbe present
school system, we ask "Hawaii," to whose care the
law has hitherto committed our English schools ? To
the Board of Education i By no means, except to a
very limited extent. They have been placed under
local directors, a majority of whom were appointed bj,
the Loicer House, and not in any way subject to the
control of the central Board. Hawaii has had its
own local agents, and if they have not incited the
people to do their part, who was to call them to ac
count but those who appointed them ?
Under the Civil Code the case is different. These
schools come under the more immediate care of the
Board, and we already begin to see indications of life
and progress, in the preparation to erect a new and
fine school house on the Royal School premises, where,
are daily assembled 150 native children learning
English, under a corps of able teachers; in a similar
movement at Hilo; in the expansion of the English
school at Lahaina, and good beginnings in other
places. But we repeat, the weak spot in this part of
our educational machinery is the legal restriction
placed upon the government, to pay no more towards
their support, than private parties pledge and actu
ally pay down. Why not leave the Board free to nse
the avails of the school-tax for the support of English
schools for natives, without any other condition on
the part of parents, than to send their children regu
larly to them for a term of years, and furnish them
with books and stationery. Maui.

ua. editor: uear sir: We observed in the
Commercial Advertiser of the 1st inst, a communi
cation containing statements injurious to the charac
ter of the District Judge in Koolauloa making the
Judge out to be a stupid fellow, knowing no more
than a pig during the greater part of the day, and
wringing against mm, oesiaes, otner important
charges. Now, we hereby declare, in the presence of
all the world, that the greater part of the communi
cation alluded to, was incorrect and false, originating
entirely in the angry and evil thoughts of the man
who wrote it because the case was not decided ex
actly as he wished. The man who brought the
charges is a foreigner of a proud and haughty dis
position, who despises a native Judge, and he is not
only an enemy of this Judge, but also of those who
appointed him to the office.
