W; are well aware that it has always been
''nt'.i.l f-.r Mjin; j iiblic oilietrs here to engage
largely in j rivato businetd. Had the late Tor
eign S rrctary let alone fugar planting he would
have liceii more useful, and he might to-day
have letn alive. It i.-j not creditable to the
Crown or the Government to have any of itd
ofSeers d'--i!y involved in outide si-eculationg
that may occupy three-f jurth.s of their time to
the prejudice of their official duties to say
nothing of tho temptation to use public funds
whenever it can be done conveniently.
In other countries public opinion is very de
cided on thi.s subject, and requires a man, when
he accepts office, to relinquish his private busi
ness. This is right, for the good name of the
(ovcrnment is involved in the conduct of its
Eervantd ; and many a time have public men in
Knland and the United .States sacrificed a lucra
tivc business to aid the Government. The pres
ent Ssecretary of the Treasury, Hugh McCul
loch, was a private banker in New York,
receiving a princely income from his business,
when he was invited to become A'sistant Treas
urer and afterwards Treasurer, neither of which
situations pays him one quarter what he derived
from hid former business. "We instance this
simply as one out of many that might be given.
Tiiid is one of tho evils of our administration,
which can easily be corrected if His Majesty is
only firm. There is but one opinion on the
subject, and that id what we have stated above,
irre.-pectivc of personal feeling1. The rule
should apply not merely to Crown Ministers,
but to every prominent officer in the Kingdom,
and we feel confident that the standing of the
Government will be raised by its enforcement.
The appointment of all public officers should
be with the sole view of strengthening the
Government by bringing to its support the in
fluence and gKd name of the person appointed,
and not to provide situations for favorites or
hangers-on. Any apjointment that does not so
strengthen and add to the honor of the Govern
meut is an unwise one. Consequently the ap
pointment of any man to office who cannot
make a living out of office is a discredit to the
Government; and, an a general rule, those who
seek for office seldom add to the strength or
credit of anv Government.
L-vst Saturday was our first steamer day,"
an event which, we hoje, may often recur
again. It reminded San Franciscans of similar
occasions in their city. Two o'clock was the
advertised hour of departure, but owin to the
rush of freight, which continued to j;o aboard
till 3 o'clock, and to the want of passports for
passengers, the steamer did not t-tart till 3.J r. m.
We may say, iu pas-dug, that the law requires
a pa.--port to be taken out by every passenger
leaving for a foreign port, who has resided here
for thirty itaijs or more. In most eases, it is a
mere matter of form, but the jolice officers are
vigilant in seeing it carried out, to prevent de
serters and absconder?. About 2. v. m.. His
Majesty the King rode down, escorting Mrs
iSynge, the lady of the former I5ritish Commis
sioner, who, with her family, was leaving for
Xew York, and who came down in His Majesty's
carriage drawn by four horses. The escort was
handsomely and gallantly performed. There
wa a large crowd remained on the Esplanade
until the sailing of the steamer, and her depart
ure was lustily cheered, lvoth from the wharf
and from the vessel, as she backed off into the
stream, and headed out to sea. She started off
in beautiful style, and wc hop? to hear, had a
short and pleasant passage over.
The gentlemen most interested in the steam
enterprise feel confident of its success, and that
as soon as the Ajar reports herself back, the
Company will place on the route two good
vese!s, to run every twenty days. This will
give forty days for each round trip, allowing
ten for the passage hither, and twelve fur the
passage back, giving nine days in port at each
end of the route, which is amply sufficient ; or
what would le letter ten days here and eight
in San Francisco. The general belief is that
the Ajar is rather largo for the present trade
and that the California is nearer the size of
vessel wanted. The latter is a nac yroydhr of
1,000 tons burthen, and not the old Pacific mail
, steamer of 1S49, which is a side-wheel boat,
now stationed as a reserve at Acapulco. She is
sail to be very fa-it, having been built for gov-
..rruii. nt ervit

Our advices received this week from San
Francisco state that arrangements would be
made in a few days to place another steamer
i (probably the above) on the new line just in
augurated, to run between San Franci.-co and
Honolulu. Whether she would leave Kfore the
arrival back of the .lir is not eta ted, but we
think she will le ready to leave immediately
on her arrival, or else if not read, would follow
her. One of these vessels' may be expected early
in March, and the line will thenceafter be a
permanency. The increased life and animation
given to trade during the time that the steamer
Ajar was in port is only a f retaste of what
wet-hall witne-s often In reafter, for it is a na
tural consequence of steam everywhere. In this
connection, the following from a late PruUttin,
will be interesting :

The telegraph rer-orts that the cholera is still
raging in th; West Indies and in certain placed
in Furor?, and there seems to be a general be
lief that it will spread on the American ( onti
nent with the return of mild weather. Should
it reach the Pacific Coast, it will cross to these
islands, for no quarantine regulations can ex
clude it. Our chief aim should be to be pre
pared for it, should it reach us. If it carries
off its hundreds and thousands in the healthy
islands of the West India group, it will cer
tainly find victims here, particularly among th;
natives. Much can be done in instructing them,
and even if it hould not trouble us, the effect of
any reform in their habits will be beneficial.
The Hoard of Health, in Xew York, has pub
lished a brief statement to the citizens, laying
down some general rules to guard against this
disease. The suggestions are so practical and
sensible that we trust all will bear them in
mind, and we hope they will be translated for
the benefit of the natives :
.Vliatevcr diU'orenccs of opinion may exist in re
paid to the cause and mode of propagation uf the
cholera, all now agret in their observations in tins
acknowledged fact that its o-'-e:lH..xt ravages and
inot fearful mortality is among the lilthv. the
vicious and the destitute, and in fact it is a!mot
confined to the imprudent, the intemperate and
th...-e who injure themselves by taking improper
Cleanliness, therefore, is of the first importance
both of your person and of your houses particu
larly your yards, sinks, privies and cesspools,
where fresh chloride of lime should be daily sprin
kled, and th adjoining walls and fences surround-
iu'; ihcin repeatedly whitewashed.
He careful that there is no stagnant water either
in your cellars or yards, and if your basements are
damp, use fires in them frciiuently and burn up
the lonl air. and cans- more perfect ventilation.
Ucinove all garLagc at least mice a day. and
twice if poss'iLL. and permit nothing to remain on
the premises to undergo decomposition.
Keep your houses well ventilated.
He temperate in ail things, both iu eating and
drinking. 1'e temperate in exercise in labor, both
physical and mental. Keep good hours. Take
proper food, in reasonable quantities, at proper
times. Plainly cooked meats, with boiled rice,
bread, and thoroughly cooked potatoes, td.oiild
form the ordinary li,c of diet.
Abstain from all unripe food fruits and stale or
partially decayed vegetables. I Jut above all, avoid
excess in intoxicating drinks of every kind.
Wear llannel next the kin. and at all times main
tain the natural temperature of the body by a
sullicii-nt amount of clothing. Avoid all exposure
to sudden changes of temperature, and if accident
ally exposed to a storm, remove your v.ct boots
and clothing; as soon as pos.-ible.
The cholera is not the necessarily fatal disease
which it is commonly believed to be. but is a dis
ease that is preventable and curable. It is always
p :eeoled by symptoms of languor and debility,
wiih diarrhea, and m this stage is always curable ;
but if neglected at this period and the diarrhea
permitted to continue till collapse comes on. it is
then almost alvvavs fatal.
