For the P. C. Advertiser.
Mr. Editor : It appears that the Dolores
Ugarte has visited Honolulu, with a cargo of
coolies, confined under gratings in a hold densely
packed, with decks guarded by cannon, barricades
and armed men ; that she has lost a number
(unknown) of her coolies by sickness and suicide,
and sent forty-three on shore. It also appears
that she lay for three days within the jurisdiction
of this kingdom, unmolested, holding her captives

floating Andersonville, with her hopeless bondmen,
festering, dying, and cursing us who did not
Our claim to be a Christian land is often
scouted because Ilawaiians are so far below the
accepted standard of Christian morality. But
what is to be said of the Christianity of the
whites? In what other port in the world inhab
ited by a prevailing community of enlightened
Protestant Christians, could the Dolores Ugarte
or any other slave ship have kept her five hundred
fainting captives under hatches a single day?
Where is your public sentiment, your indignation
meetings? Your resistless popular wrath ? Where
else would the hesitating efforts of generous men
to deliver the bondsmen be ridiculed by a govern
ment organ as Philanthropy on the Rampage?"
What Christianity is this ! " Behold, I was in
prison, and ye visited me not !" .
This affair leaves a deep and lasting disgrace on
Honolulu, and us all. It is made manifest that
our humanity has declined, and our consciences
are blunted. .Where are our declared abolition
ists? Where is our enthusiasm for the American
war against slavery? Now when a slave ship
comes to our own doors, some cry out, some
mock, and no one is alert to help effectively.
Had the souls on board that ship been in bodies
of European extraction, would they have been
left in that hold ? No sir, no power in Honolulu
would have kept you all from rising en masse to
release them. But they were only Chinamen, j
And you call yourselves enlightened Christians.
It is time for every man who cares for his own
moral condition or that of his townsmen, to in
quire what influence it is that has so demoralized
our sentiments on the subject of human bondage? j
Let me answer. It is cooieism. It is the system
of holding men in a bondage of any sort, subject
to our wills, under a penal enforcement.
damages master and eervant alike.
S. E. Bishop.
Lahainaluna, Sept. 7, 1870.
Remarks. We thank the writer of the above
for the manly expression of his sentiments, which
will find a response in the breast of every Chris
tian. Had wc among us more of such men, who,
when they 6ee a damning wrong winked at pub
licly, dare to stand up for the oppressed, we
should hear less of attempts to gag the press.
NOTES OF TIIE WEEK.
Aw Interesting Ceremony. On Thursday even
ing the Rev. M. Kuaea, one of the tutors of the La
hainaluna Seminary was married to Miss Tamar
j Makaike. The ceremony, took place in the Kawaia
1 hao church, in the presence of a large audience, Rev.
j A. O. Forbes officiating, assisted by. Rev. II. II.
! Parker. Mr. Kuaea is one of the most talented and
best-educated of the native race. His youthful bride
is also a full Hawaiian, who, under the tutelage of
Miss Odgen and more recently of Miss Bingham, has
received the best education obtainable in these islands,
and is an uncommon woman, reading and speaking
English and Hawaiian fluently, affording " an
illustration of the good which our female seminaries
are doing in educating the native race. The cere
mony was conducted in tbe same manner as is cus
tomary in our American churches. There were two
groomsmen (Messrs. Kawainui and Kalua), and two
bridesmaids, pupils in the seminary, dressed in white,
and decked with wreaths of orange and white jessa
mine flowers. The whole went off most creditably to
all concerned. After the services in the church, the
couple retired .to Miss Bingham's parlors, where
were gathered a larger number of foreigners and
natives than we had expected to meet. The newly
married couple stood at one end of the room, attended
by the grooms and bridesmaids, and received tbe
hearty alohas of their friends. It was a genuine
" fifteenth amendment" gathering, and proved to be
one of the pleosantest re-unions ever held here. Mr.
Kuaea with his bride leaves for Lahaina in the J"ellie
Merrill to resume his duties as instructor
of the Hawaiian branches in the seminary. The
happy couple carry with them tbe warm alohas of a
large circle of friends.
Who was he? Recently in overhauling an old
coral stone building on the former school premises
at Kulaokahua, evidences were found that the loft
had at one time been inhabited by some person of
either s very retiring turn of mind, or else one who
by the force of circumstances was compelled to keep
out of sight. In the loft were found a number of
copies of the New York Tribune, of the year 1857.
These had evidently been used to enwrap the food
which from time to time some one had passed up to
the recluse through a hole cut in the ceiling. Several
of these packages of food were found unconsumed,
save by the tooth of time, for the contents were re
duced to dust. Two tobacco pipes and two pocket
knives were found, and a soiled copy each of
Handy Andy and one of the Waverly novels-a
proof that the unknown was of A literary turn of
mind. Perhaps also, in his solitary condition he
was inclined to be bibulous, for sundry and divers
bottles, labelled "Martell's," "Pale Ale," &c, lay
scattered about on the floor cf his retreat. Whs he
was, where he came from, how long he remained in
concealment, and where he has gone to, are questions
which must, it is feared, remain unanswered, just as
much so as what was tbe mystery of Edwin
Drood. It forms, however, a good opening scene for
a local romance, which might be made to read well
if publiished. "
Alarm or Fire. On Wednesday evening last, at
nearly ten o'clock, the alarm was struck from the sta
tion house and bell tower, and it was soon ascertained
that the cause proceeded from the upper story of the
" Empire " liquor saloon, formerly the old National.
As near as can be ascertained, a kerosene lamp,
hanging by a nail against the wall, fell to the floor,
and the fluid at once burst out into a blaze. It was,
however, speedily extinguished without any note
worthy damage. The Fire Department turned out
promptly, but its services were not needed.
Police Court. In the case of S. H. Cooper
(Royal Hotel) under bail in the sum of two hundred
dollars to answer a charge of selling spirituous liquors
to a native, the bail was, by consent of the prosecu
tion, pronounced forfeit and tbe case .discharged.
There was another case of forfeiture of bail a matter
of assault and flaggelation the defendant not putting
in an appearance, the fifty dollars goes into the treas
ury. On Wednesday, a Chinaman was found guilty
of stealing a watch, and sent over to the jail for one
Rain. During the first part of this week there
have been during the night, and sometimes during
the day, brisk showers of rain in town, greatly re
freshing vegetation. The windward side of the isl
and, we are glad to hear, has been similarly visited,
and with a more ample supply.
Sailed. The U. S. steamer ITeartarge sailed for
San Francisco on Tuesday at 1 P. M., taking the
mails. During the ship's short stay in port, her
gentlemanly set of officers made many friends in our
Mark Twaiw. This roving traveler, whom many
of our readers will remember as a coarse and rather
sloveoljr but good-natured fellow, with an everlasting
cigar in his mouth, and his feet upon everybody's
desk or table, has become so noted a character, that
an occasional notice of him is not amiss. The Wash
ington correspondent of the Sacramento Usios,
under date of July 15th, has the following regard
ing him :
" Mark Twain is in town, and I had quite a chat
with him yesterday. He is here for three or four
days, on private business, and has given up lectur
ing for the present, although overrun with offers. I
suppose you known that $50 per night are the usual
terms of ordinary lecturers. Those of the " upper
crust " get $100 a night. But Philadelphia recently
offered our California humorist $2J5 a night for any
reasonable number of nights ! Mark is rich now,
and I presume can afford to decline even such terms
as these. Then, again, his father-in-law has been
sick, almost unto death, at Elmira. Mark appears
to be a very devoted husband. His old friends in
Nevada and California will remember how he used
to smoke pipes, and quaff lager and dress rather
slouchily. Well, all this is changed. He now dresses
with good taste, never drinks or smokes. Such,
alas ! are some of the results of marriage. Un
doubtedly he looks all the better for it, and perhaps
it is this that lends a finer quality of late to bis
humor, which used occasionally to have a touch of
grossness in it. But in all other respects he is the
same old " Mark " of yore. He is under contract
to write a new book, and wants to go ofl, as soon as
his father-in-law is well enough, to some quiet nook
in England or some other part of the world where
nobody knows him, and there write it. It must be
ready by next March. He is also engaged by the
Galaxy for a year, unless by mutual consent the
engagement is sooner closed. The other day, he did
some " tall telegraphing," as he rightly terms it.
His brother-in-law traveling, nobody knew where,
in Europe, was wanted home immediately. Mark
telegraphed to Monroe & Co , the American bankers
in Paris, to telegraph all over Europe and ascertain
his whereabouts. In eight hours after sending the
dispatch to Monroe & Co., a reply was received here
that the brother-in-law was in Bavaria. Pretty
sharp work, wasn't it T And I mention this so that
some of the Union's readers, in similar straits, may
hereafter profit by the information."
Rev. C. Searle's Lectire. It was a rainy even
ing and not so many out as were expected, but the
weather or small audience had nothing to do with
the merits of the lecture. The reverend lecturer in
formed the audience that the said lecture was pre
pared years ago for an Australian audience. It was
one hour and a quarter in the delivery, and yet the
time glided away pleasantly, for the speaker has an
agreeable voice and interesting delivery. His topic
was, " Men who have made themselves "a good
topic, and most of the illustrations well chosen,
although most decidedly English, but the lecturer
prepared the minds of his audience for this feature
in his opening remarks. He referred to " two dukes
and sixty earls," who had sprung " from the ranks,"
or rather according to his account of their ontrin.
from the ,owcst Btrata 0f society from barber shops,
coal yards, and all sorts of queer places. Such
i oeing me iaci, surety me aristocracy 01. rngianu
j have but little to say about " the pride of birth."
-a f a 1 i . . m -w fl
That portion of the lecturer's address would appear
rather strange in print, coming from an Englishman.
! Perhaps he would furnish a few paragraphs for some
i one of our numerous weeklies, the Advertiser,
Gazette, Bennett's Own and Commercial Herald.
His next lecture on women will take place on
I Tuesday evening, as per notice in another column,
I and we hope it will be more fully attended.
We understand it is Mr. Searle's plan to open a
school in Honolulu, as soon as arrangements can be
The Boat Race. Last Monday sftertoon the Es
planade was crowded with spectators to witness a
race between two fourteen-oared boats, belonging the
U. S. ships Kearsarge and Jamestown. The course
was from the seaward end of the Esplanade to the
bell-buoy outside and back. The winning boat
that of the Kearsarge, made the distance in twenty
six minutes, leading her opponent three minutes fif
teen seconds to the starting point. It is but fair to
say, however, that the Kearsarge' boat was much
the lighter of the two, and that her crew were evi
dently in excellent training. When the boats met at
the starting point on the return, cheers were given,
and bands cordially shaken between the boats' crews,
they of the Jamestown, saying to the winners
Well, boys, if we want to be beat you, we must go
home for another boat." Considerable excitement
prevailed both among the crews of the two ships and
people on shore, and bets were freely offered and
taken. During the race, Her Majesty Queen Emma
aod suite were the guests of Capt. Thornton and tbe
officers of the Kearsarge, which manned yards on
the Queen '8 arrival on board. In the evening there
was music and dancing on board the Jamestown.
All About a Paint Brush. Two natives, jour
neymen painters, got into a dispute last Wednesday,
after office hours, on the stoop in front of the Post
office, about a paint brush which one accused the
other of having stolen. The dispute ran high, and
so did temper, until, getting closer and closer, they
clinched each other by the hair of the head and
went down together, rolling over and over on the
pavement. Blows were interchanged freely, but
there seemed to be a tacit agreement not to hit one
another in the face, but heavy sounding whacks on
the ribs was the rule, varied by occasional stoppages
of respiration owing to the throat being clutched
rather roughly. At last, when a crowd of sight
seers had gathered around, one of the combatants.
who happened to be undermost, finding himself in
chancery, cried " nun," and the two walked off un
molested by the police, and leaving the paint brush
question undecided. It is not often that two natives
are seen fighting, and when they do, no damage is
Well Merited. In one of the New Bedford
papers we find the following notice of a testimonial
worthily bestowed on Captain Nye, whom most of
our readers are well acquainted with :
" When the rebel pirate Shenandoah made her
raid among tbe whaling fleet just outside of the
Arctic Ocean, in tbe summer of 1805, Captain
Ebenezer F. Nye, of New Bedford, whose ship, the
Abigail, had been destroyed, secretly escaped from
the ship Milo, which had been reserved by tbe
pirate to convey the captured seamen to San Fran
cisco, with eleven other men in two boats, for the
purpose of warning the whaleships in the Arctio of
their danger, and succeeded in effecting the escape
of several ships. The Atlantic Insurance Company
of New York, which had large risks on the fleet, has
recognized the servives of Captain Nye and his
companions by forwarding the sum of 3120) to be
divided among them. The New Bedford under
writers propose to double the amount.'
Patent Chocks for Whaleboats. Brewer & Co.
have received by the lolani, from Boston, a new in
vention for whaleboats, which is likely to come into
general use. It often occurs that after a whale is
struck, the line becomes foul as it runs out through
tbe chocks, and is jammed, either by a kink or
bight, in which case the line must be promptly cut
and the whale probably lost, or the boat will be en

contrivance of which we speak, "Adams Patent,
New Bedford," is a composition groove, over which
the line runs, and is fitted with a hinge, against
which any "foul" in the line must come, upon
which tbe hinge immediately turns over and throws
the impediment over the bows. By clocking the line
the hinge can be at once readjusted.
Water Rights. There is no more fruitful source
of quarrels and litigation in these islands than the
rights of different land-holders to their share of tbe
running water. Especially is this tbe case when, as
at present, the supply is short, and the taro planter,
even if he gets his fair share, finds his patches dry.

practice going on, particularly at sight time, and tBe
owner of a patch may awake in the morning and
find that his neighbor has diverted the stream on to
his own land. Then comes a suit for malicious
injury, and before they get through the Courts the
parties will probably find themselves out of pocket
for costs and lawyers fees, more than the taro was

A correspondent of 77e Dayton (Ohio) Jmirnal,
writing from tbe Fiji Islands, Is of opinion thut
"Fiji is tbe lost Paradise,' the only objection to it
being the Fijiaus, who will not cultivate It them
selves, nor yet make room entirely for those who
will. There are, however, abont one bandred cot
ton plantations in tbe group of Inlands, producing
long staple sea island cotton, within six months
after planting. The production gos on year after
year without replanting ; the cotton commands 3
9 4s per pound in tbe English markets, and if the
land is well cultivated the annual yield is from
600 to 800 pounds per acre. Ibor is imported
from the New-Hebrides group of islands, the
laborer costing $25 landed. He is to be fed with
yams and one piece of pork a week, and this, and
a musket costing $6.50, once a year, are all his
wages, except that you must transport him back to
New-Hebrides after three or four years. TW
Fijians prefer soldiering ; they are, however, yield

court etiquette that when a white man visits any
native chief be shall present him with a bottle of

The Ice ScprLT. On Wednesday morning last,
the ice gave out, and that without warning. A gen
tleman, who bad been in the habit of taking some
thing cooling every forenoon, dropped in as usual at
one of the places of publie resort where they keep
ice, and asked for his customary drink, ice and soda.
He was told that he was in luck, as the lant bit of
ice was slowly dripping away. He took two drinks
of iced soda out of one tumbler full of ice, and lin
gered long over the last. A freeh supply la shortly
expected, and arrangements will be made to keep it
constantly on band.

A Dakgkrouh Fall. Last Thursday afternoon, as
one of the native boys employed in the Custom
House, was reaching out of one of the front windows
of the second story in the act of closing the iron
shutters, he lost his balanoe, and fell headlong to
the ground, a distance of about twenty feet Singu
larly enough, the only injury he received was a cut
lip and considerable of a shaking. Had he fallen
squarely on his bead he must have been killed.

Mr. Editor : It will be remembered that the sci
entific adepts of Honolulu were put to their trumps a
few weeks ago, in trying to account for the breaking
and violent, displacement of a cant iron monument,
recently erected in ono of the cemeteries of the town.
It was satinfactorily explained, at least to tbe satis
faction of the writer, in your paper, and the excite
ment suddenly subsided, and no more has been heard
of the matter, from that day to this. But wonders
never cease. Science is again called upon to ezplain
a still more wonderful phenomenon, which occurred
in quite another part of the town within a week or
ten days, and cast iron is again tbe subject of the
Something like a year ago, a gentlemtn sent to
England for a cast iron lamp post, and on its arrival,
had it firmly planted in front of his valley remdenoe,
where, on dark nights, it has been lighted for the
benefit of the public, and his own convenience. And

But judge of his surprise, last Sunday morning,

ported itself bodily across the street, and had quietly
replanted itself in front of a gentleman's residence,
and stood ready for the first dark night to illuminate
the entrance of the favored individual to whom it
had taken a liking.
Here is a new question for tbe savans. Was it elec
tricity, natural expansion, or what, that acted upon
this lamp post ; and caused it to turn this remarkable
somersault across the street T
The gentleman to whom the cast iron lamp post
belongs feels a lively interest in knowing, because he
is anxious to have the same power applied to bis
neighbor's granite gate posts, in hopes that they may
be removed with equal facility, and substituted for
his wooden posts, which be regards as inferior.
Please bring this interesting question to the atten

new motive power, whose incipient development is so
Llter !- Right or Wrssgl
Mr. Editor : In reading over your article on the
morality of lotteries, under the bead of " Right or
Wrong? " it seems to me that you are rather run
ning into an abstraction and running that ab
straction somewhat " into the ground." Abstractly,
investing in a lottery ticket is trustiog to chance for
good fortune, and by your reasoning, whenever one
" chances his luck," he becomes a gambler. If this
be sound reasoning, bow few merchants, speculators
they all are, more or less, but would be classed as
gamblers? The sending of a cargo of goods to a
foreign market, like the celebrated invoice of warm
ing pans to the West Indies, is a "venture," and
the snipper, nine times out of ten, trusts to luck to
make or lose. This general rule applies more or lesa
to every avocation in life, hardly excepting even the
farmer, whose occupation may be considered the on
upon which all others depend even he trusts to the
chances of sunshine and rain for the maturity of his
crops. I do not advocate lottery schemes as a general
tning, dui mere are exceptional cases. Xne staid
and strict descendants of the Puritans, whose stern
principles of morality I am glad to see yon errulate
in many respects, do not disdain to ret up eames of
chance at fairs in aid of building a church, or some
benevolent purpose. But when so highly respectable
