Vcatu or Kit. Asa Thiiutox. Another t f the
American Pioneer MbKinrie to tbe Hawaiian
Lslknlj Laa pa"&-l away. Tbe Rer. Aa Tin r ton
wsa born in FitchLurgb, Muii., Oct. 1-Uj, 1767, anj
died in Honolulu, March 1 1th, ISGiS, at the advanced
age of years. He graduated at Yale College, in
New Haven, In 1810, and at Andovcr Tlieological
Seminary, in 11'.. Among bia clu-mite at An
dover, were Lis Associate, the Ilev. II. Bingham; the
Rer. Cynxs Byington, miasiouary to the Choctaw
Indians; the Ilev. Jr. King, missionary to Atliens,
Greece; the Rer. lr. Orville Dewey, and several
others who have become distinguished for their
talents as divines and scholars. Soon after leaving the
Seminary, he was marYied to Miss Lucy Goodale, cf
Marlborouzh. Mass.. who has ever been his faithful
wife and companion in all the toils, labors and priva-
tions of missionary life. They embarked at Boston,
Oct. 23d, 1819, with their missionary associates, on
board the brig Thaddeus, Capt. Blanchard. Before
sailing, Mr. Thurston made a farewell address in
Park Street Church. Tbe vessel reached the islands
March CO, 1820, and Mr. and Mrs. Thurston were
assigned to the station at Kailua, Hawaii, the old
residence of the kings of the Islands. There they re
sided for more than forty years, until, through in
firmities of age, they removed to Honolulu. Here he
baa spent the few closing years of an eventful life,
respected and estecired, honored aud beloved. As a
missionary of the American Board of Missions, he
has ever labored with great usefulness and success.
His knowledge of the native language aud character
was most thorough. As V preacher, he was ever
much beloved by the native Hawaiian?, as he spoke
their language with great purity and idiomatic accu
racy. In the early years of the mission, his labors
as a translator were arduous and successful In this
great work, he was associated with Bingham, Rich
ards, Bishop, Green, Andrews, Dibble and others.
It fell to his lot to translate parts of Genesis, Num
bers, Deuteronomy, and the whole of Samuel, 2d of
Kings, antt some other parts of the Bible. His
funeral was attended on Thursday last, by both
Hawaiiaus and foreigners, from the 1st Church in
Honolulu. The following was the order of exercises:
Prayer, iu Hawaiian, by Rev. L. Smith; Address, in
Euglisb, by Rev. E. Corwin; Address, iu Hawaiian,
by Rer. L. II. Gulick; Prayer, in English, by Rev.
S. C. Damon; Benediction, by Rev. II. Biugham, jr.
The absence of the. Rev. Mr. Parker, Pastor of the
Church, was much regretted. If spice would allow,
it would be easy to indulge in a train of remark, con
trasting the present with the pait. When our de
parted Father iu the Ministry arrived, all was one
wide moral heathen waste. Idolatry was abolished,
bat the work of reducing the language to a written
form, and the endless toil of a missionary's life, was
to be entered upon. Now, bow changed the moral
aspect ! The deceased leaves a widow aud three
chMren and numerous grand children to mourn Lis
loss. All who were acquainted with the life and
labors of the deceased, are ready involuntarily to

Arbival op tiIe Stonewall. The famous rebel
ram Stometcall arrived in our harbor yesterday en
route from New York to Yokohama, but last from
Callao. She is an iron plated vessel, built originally
in France for the rebels. On her arrival at Havana
about the time the confederacy caved in, she was sur- i
rendered to the Cajtain General of Cuba, who deliv
ered her up to the United States Government. About
a year ago she was sold to the Japanese government,
and ia now oa her way out to Yokohama. Being the
first iron clad war Teasel that has ever been in our
harbor, she will naturally 1 an object of curiosity to
the natives. In our nest we will give a full descrip
tion of her, and here merely a-Id a lint of her officers :

The Sloieicall has two Japanese naval officers as
passengers, and will remain in port about two weeks.
A IIixt to Capitalists. Some of the passengers
from Sydney who have touched here recently on
their way to California, assure us that thousands of
the Colonists wish to migrate to Cnliforuia, but the
lack of suitable convej-ance and the high prices
charged in sailing vessels prevent them. They say
that if a line ot steamers were established between
San Francisco and Sydney, and the price of passage
reasonable, the vessels would return filled with passen
gers of the upper classes as well as laborers. AVe
have no doubt that is so, and that here is a good field
open for American enterprise. The distance between
the two ports is 0,48-3 miles, viz, lf80 from San Fran
cisco to Honolulu and 4,40o on to Sydney. It would
be necessary to touch at this port to coal, and proba
bly at some port between here and Sydney. Holla
day's Honolulu steamship line extended on to Syd
ney, leaving San Francisco every fifteen or twenty
days, and employing four vessels, would find full
freights and passengers both ways probably. It is a
large enterprise, but will 8on b required. The ne
cessities of commerce Bcem to demand it, and the
sooner established the better.
A Hawaiian 1rophet. The atcamer last week
brought from Hawaii a native who has made himself
quite conspicuous in Kor.a as a prophet, preaching
to the natives that the end of the world is at hand,
and they must lie ready. He has succeeded in secur
ing some two hundred followers, who put full faith
in his statements. The authorities took charge of
him a year and a half ago and placed him in the In.
sane Asylum; but he was there so quiet and inof
fensive that he was released. On returning to Ha
waii he commence I preaching again, and has created
so much excitement that it was thought best to re
mand hiiu to the Asylum. When taken charge of, all
his followers, dressed in white robes and mounted on
horses, accvuij-anlej him to the beach, where he ad
dressed them, telling them to remain faithful, and
that the righteous had always been persecuted from
old times. Three or four of his disciples accompanied
him to Honolulu, as witnesses to prove his sanity.
He apicars to be a religious fanatic, who, aside from
his preaching, is harmless. Such fanatics are found
in older and more civilitcd countries, and it should
not be wondered at if they are occasionally met with
Unsfemlt Haste If ar.y additional evidence were
needed of the feeling of the Hawaiian Government j is malicious treachery, and bringing the courts of the
towards Americans, it has Ven afforded by the baste J country into contempt, how would a dealer in epi
with which the Government issued an extra from its ' thets stigmatize the deeds themselves?
Dress on Thursdav. civinz the full de-ails of tho When these events occurred I became convinced
unfortunate state of affiirs in Washington. -It is bad !
enough to have to publish this news in the regular ;
edition news which makes every American's head j peudence and rights of the people must be sought un
hang down with shame; but for a Government paper j der some stronger safeguard. This I believe attainable
and Government officials, adeeming to be friendly, to
make undue haste in publishing the account, shows,
to say the least, an anxiety to have it circulated as
soon as possible, and before any later advices might
soften the unwelcome points in it. Does any one
suppose that if the mail hail reported trouble in the
British or French Cabinet, the Hawaiian Government j
would have made sueh unseemly haste to spread the
i news, before waiting to see if it were confirmed or :
not? Never. j

Letter froua WatahiaiKlaai.
I Wauixuto.x, 1. C, Janury 20, 1S03.
II. h Wuitxsy, 1j., JUy dtar Sir.- At the
I urgt nt Solicitation cf Mr. llarrus, I came on to thi
; citr ou the Ctb ult., and renuiiurxl bcre till the 20th,
wbeu t'ougrc: a JjourneU on account of the approach
, ing huliilii till the Ctb of January. I returned to
Washington on the l"th instant. Siuce which I have
j letrn watching and awaiting the progress of events,
j General M't'cok and Mr. Harris have prvbabljr kept
your couiiiiunity in relation to their progress
iu behalf of tbe iUviprweity Treaty; aud I have only
! to reunirk that we have had opposition enough uc-
erft tnoufk to stimulate but not :o much of the one
or the other as to discourage or paralyze exertion.
As the telegrams will probal.'y have advised you
of the vaccess "or failure of the treaty before this
reaches you, an opinion from me at this time will
give you no information, and therefore I prefer not
to hazard one. 1 have generally spent my afternoons
in the galleries of the Senate, and it is only during
the evenings that we have opportunities cf access to
Senators. Occasionally we arc so fortunate as to find
t them at home in the moruine, but not after. Before
the session, and during my visit down East, I was so
fortunate as to secure the friendly regard of one of
our Senators, and since my arrival in this city, he
i has expressed himself very cordial to the treaty, and
will aid its passage should he find my statements correct
when the subject comes l-efore hiiu. I have not been so
fortunate with his colleague, who is now the only oppo
nent whom we fear.as he is potent in the Senate. Could
we have secured bis support, or evcu neutrality, in
either case the treaty would have been adopted, in
committee, with not more than tuo or three dissenting
The papers will probably have informed you that
during the late fall elections, the Republicans lost
heavily in two or three States. The reaction was
caused by the apprehension of negro supremacy in
the reconstructed States of the South. At the com
mencement of the present session of Congress, the
Democratic party were jubilant over the defeat of the
Radicals, aud appeared very sanguine that they
would triumph in the next Presidential election. But
for the last four weeks the party opposed to Congress
has been waning, and the congressional party gain
ing strength. The latter had remained on the de
fensive after the fall elections, waiting for events to
develop the course of policy to be pursued. Latterly
the Republicans or Radicals have exhibited a bolder
front and more confident tone. They have abandoned
their defensive lines, and assumed the aggressiveand
I have no doubt they will sweep down all opposition,
aud that under General Grant, as the now acknowl
edged leader of the Radicals, the Copperheads will
meet with aa signal a defeat at tl7 next fall election,
aa did the rebels during the late civil war.
The most telling speech of the session, in defense of
the reconstructive measures of Congress, and against
the President's policy, was delivered yesterday in the
Senate by ex-Governor, now Senator Morton, of Indi
ana. The galleries were deusely crowded. Paralyzed
iu his lower limbs, the Senator was obliged to sit dur
ing his speech, and for nearly an hour he commanded
the closest atteution both of a full Senate and of
crowded galleries. At the close of his speech, atiout
I a dozen of Lis colleagues left their seats and came
I forward aud gave the triumphant Senator their hands,
j in tokcu cf their congratulations for the unanswerable
demonstration he bad given that the reconstruction
acts of Congress were within the ' spirit and letter of
the Constitution, aud that the policy of the President
in his attempts to restore upon his plan the Southern
States to their orbits, was a palpable violation of that
Secretary Stanton remains in quiet possession of
the War Department, and the charges against Gen
eral Grant of Laving violated his engagements with
the President, in the manner of vacating the office
ami surrendering it to Stanton, are untrue, and have
been circulated without the authority of the President.
I forgot to remark that Senator Morton, upon
whom, just now, the mantle of thj late Daniel Web
ster appears to rest, is on the Committee of Foreign
Relations, and will support the treaty, which, if
there be no change of votes' since Tuesday last, will
give us a majority of one in Committee, and a very
strong support in the Senate.
The present is said to be one of the gayest seasons
Washington has known for nianj' years. The even
ing receptions are said to le (I have not yet attended
any of them) the most brilliant ever witnessed at any
General J. F. B. Marshall came on to Washington
with me at the close of the recess, and remained a
week, ne made himself very useful. The Hawaiian
Club have rendered efficient aid. They spent several

TrEsn.tr, January 28. The Committee of Foreign
Relations have to-day instructed their Chairman,
Hon. Charles Summer, to report to the Senate that
the Hawaiian Treaty of Rociprocity be adopted, and
no minority report will be presented.
To the Editor of the P. C. Adrertiser.
Allow me to repeat, I am an annexationist, because
I believe it will incre ase the happiness and prosperity
of the people. To advocate such a measure, without
such a conviction, would be wrong. To withhold
such advocacy when I believe this, would be cowardly.
As I have lefore intimated, I was not so convinced
before the revolution of 1SG4. Previous to that
cveut, the Government seemeJ actuated by a desire
to perpetuate the liberties of the people, aud every
year added prestige to the Constitution, and gave
promise of political stability. Nothing cau ever
again restore the prestige of Hawaiian Constitution
alism at houie and abroad. Regret it as we may, the
fatal step has been taken; the blow has been dealt,
aud by those who should have sought to protect,
rather than destroy. I do not pronounce upon the
motives which prompted them. Men who shut their
eyes to the experience of the past, and lightly violate
established principles, must make mistakes. I only
pronounce upon the fact.
If thus, with strict adherence to truth, to merely
lift the veil of history, and bring these facts to light,
that we must turn to some stronger support than !
Hawaiian Constitutional Government; that the mde-
only through annexation to the Lnited Mates,
Pondering upon the influences that seemed to tend
to such a consummation I believed it not only possible,
but inevitable, and, through the darkness I hailed
the dawn of what I believe will prove a brighter day
for this people. I am no alarmist. I point to a bet
ter and happier future.
Nations die, but peoples live; thrones decay, but
man is elevated; slowly but surely the elevation goes
on, and often the very blows dealt by those who
would check this progress, are those that lift the
incubi which press man down.
Thus I embraced annexation. I respect the love
which many of the natives naturally feel for Hawai
ian Independence, and did I not believe they would
enjoy more liberty and prosperity by annexation I
would not advocate it. I respect the motives which
lead that large claa, known as tbe missionary party,
to sympathize with that love, and to yearn for a
return to the principles of this Government, before
the revolution. But I feel that this is impossible;
that the time calls for more active working among
thoe that love this people. Let the dead bury the
dead." Vain regrets are useless, to continually point
to the unredressed wronjr is vain. It is better to
j fight for the good, than to rail at the ill."
To labor for the good of the nation is the highest
and nollest patriotism, even if you encounter the
sneers c f power, the reproaches of those who always
dread charge, and even be called anti-Hawaiian.
Let us trust that progress may not always be called
An editorial in the Hawaiian (Gazette lately assert
ed that the present Ministry had urged a measure,
though it might be called in a restricted sense anti
Hawaiian. What would be said of a German, or & British
Minister, who 6bouId advocate a measure in any
sense anti German or anti-British. Should we for
this reason stigmatize the Ministers as traitors, and
propose for them a trial by jury? By no means.
We know the Ministers were opposed to the treaty.
The editorial columns of the Gazette opposed it at
first, and it was so stated by the Ministers themselves
in the Legislative Assemb.yl They still show their mis-
givings, and style it in some sense, anti-Hawaiian, but
they have wisely yielded, and were obliged to yield,
to " the inexorable logic of events," to a pressure
that was growing irresistible. All the interests of
commerce and sgriculture; the prosperity of the King
dom, and of consequence its independence; all the
great interests of progress, commerce and of human
ity which cluster round this ocean centre; in a word
all the material interests which call for annexation
demanded some concession, and all accepted the
treaty as a progressive step to that end. That the
Ministry thus accepted it, is shown in the same edit
orial alluded to above:
" Nor can we deprecate the consequences of the
treaty, though it should prove vastly more import int
to our prosperity in the future than is apparent to
day, and if the onward march of time, and the con
tinued expansion of the world's commerce in this
ocean, should demonstrate that both California and
our Islands are naturally interested in its indefinite
Commercial treaties are necessarily for definite pe
riods. In no other way save by annexation could the
" indefinite continuance " of the benefits of the treaty
be secured. Thus I am glad to see that some at least
of the representatives of the Ministry in the columns
cf their organ have
" Dip't into the future, fur as human eye ran see,"
and, intentionally or not, have given honest expres
sion to the idea which all far-sighted men can see ex
presses the inevitable future of this nation.
But is the treaty, or is annexation, anti-Hawaiian.
in the truest sense ? It may be, in some such sense
as the opening of the ports to foreign trade bv Janan
was anti-Japanese; in some such sense as the whole
form of this Government might be said to be anti-
llawauan since it is borrowed in every way from
abroad. If Hawaiian be usod as a synonym for retro
gression, barbarism and national torpidity, then may

The Constitution of 1852 recognized the necessity
of incorporating the principle of progress in the Gov
ernment of this country. It was framed in accord
ance with the spirit of the age, and thus secured the
resect of other nations. It was admirably adipted
to the necessities both of the people and the age.
The iconoclasts of 18G4 thought they saw some in
congruities in its application to the people, and for
getting that the ieople ought to be, and were fast
becoming adapted -to these principles, necessary to
their continued existence as an independent power.

dial of Hawaiian progress, weakened the hold of the
Government upon the respect of all outward influ
ences, and now turn to a short-lived treaty with a
foreign power to sustain the nation, though they per
ceive its consequences to be the indefinite dependence
of the nation upon the United States. Accepting then
the situation, will it not be wise to legisl ite and gov
ern so as to prepare the people for the future that
awaits them T
The effort made to prejudice the native mind, and
lead them to accept with aversion this destiny, and
the epithets applied to any who hold these views, have
led me to do what was not usual to me, and place

Island or Kacla, March 1, 18G8.
To Mr. Squibob. J.Hjtlire. Honolulu :
Deer and Respected Scr : I've seed that yere
lettcr o yourn addressed to miself in the Cummerctal
Tizer of February loth, which were verry perlite of
you for shewing rcespeck to mi orfis in parspectiv
and a memter of the infloenshal family of the Smithses.
(I refers to the Mumferdses, them Mothses bein
amost burnt out.) As for the infermashun which
you impart to me in that yere letter o yourn about
the noo party, that, as the Government Gazeat says,
is a goin to " bodily dispose of the rest of the nation,
and ef they can git a hundred strong, will put the
hull C2,850 on 'cm, tales and bodies, bosses and dogs,
and kannibels, and all that blongs to 'em, Govern
ment press and Drekter, types and teeth, French
mustard, pills and casterile, etcetery, etcetery, into a
bag to make a big luau of," I'm muchly obleeged to
you, and I'm altera glad to'hear from you agin and
agin how that yere party, that's bin ptealin along for
SO years, is a goin it, and about that yere platform
and comporhensiv lanai for that big luau, and about
Jim and the bar, and who wipt the old lady ; but ef
you hav eny thort that I shood jine that yere noo
party, then mi deer and much respecktid Sur, I say
as Hamlet sed to the goast,
" Don't tech me!"
Kase I can't and I won't, and I shan't do no sich
thing, for 2 verry good resins, which were, fustly,
can' stummick that yere luau. I'm a Suthe.n Ohioan,
and I woodn't mind rattle Bnaiks, alligator or nigger,
but them kannibcls, false teeth and casterile is agin
mi nacher. I coodn't bare them. Sly Pni a Dem
ikrut, which all the Smithses, the Mothses, as well
as the Mumferdses, allers has bin and alters will stick
to. The Dcmikrattik party is the trew Government
party, and it's the party that's well pcrvided with
bread and butter, and thar never was a individooal
Smith that didn't stick to bread and butter ; and the
same as that yere moth will suck at the Government
friing pan till his wings stick to the fat and Cuzzin
Bumblebee will stick to Andy Johnson's sideboard as
long as the Demikrattik biveridge is kept streit, I'll
stick to the Government doktcr-shop for all its smellin
ruther rank, as long as the orfis of Deestrick Jcdge
of Kaula is in mi parspecktiv voo.
That yere Drekter's bin a riting in his noospaper
that he thinks that it will mortefi every American to
reed that yere famoos letter, and to hav it made nown
that our Miuister of Furriu Affairs is a French ad
vencher and a waifer from Californy, and that our
Minister of the Intereor is an English Dokter, what
tried to make a livin as a fonuast hand bi picsning
wales, but coodn't, and got discharged, tho for all
that, he mite bi this time bin praps a better boat
6teerer or mate than Minister of the Intereor ; but,
sez I, what's the orts cf them yere hi orfisers of etait
is French and English; ain't they as trew Deiuikrats
as His Hiness the Dook, and woodn't they travel on
the publik expense jest as well as any other Demikrat,
cf they cood find any kasion to do so? Ain't our
Fernandy as good as that yere Fernandy Wood of
New York, and a darned site taller than him, and
about the slickest to handle an elekshun without any
l'luguglies, only oy taKin siaes or naij siaes witn sucn
trew Dcmikrattic patreots as Bill Ragsdall and others
that's bin a workin thare best for the publik good
and thare ovrn benefit ? What's the orts, sez I, ef
that Jedgc of Elekshun was a lookin at them ballets,
ef he thort that thare was Fanians in it ; and what's
the orts ef them hi orfisers tuck thar fust start from
(the ash-p:t and from nowhars, ef they ar makin
money ; and don't the hull histery of Demikratsy
tell us th:.t thare never was a Demikrat bi in orfis
that wasn't koinin money as fast as a small mint, in
a hundred ways and meens unbeknown to outsiders?
Jest look at them brite lites of the galorius Demi
kratsy, Andy Johnson, John Morrisey and His Hiness
the Dook !
I'm bound to keep mi orfis in voo, and tharfore I'm
bound t uphold our galorius Demikrattik party
what's got the bread and butter. So no more from
