FRIDAY, HOVEMBER 3, 1871.
DcrixO Ibe put week business has gone on quietly, and
thoufk the absence of oar usual foil 4 eet from the Arctic has
xaiaed much disappointment, btwI not a few flootny fbre
Wiiog yet we are pleased to Bote a determination on the part
v cor community to look the matter square in the Ctce, and
to meet the results with towage aud confidence.
That beay obligation hare been incurred amongst car mer
chants to meet the expected fall trade is true ; still loose re
speraibititKS) were net undertaken to supply a specniatire
market, bat were based upon sound premises and to meet a
kgttinsle demand; and though the loss of the whaling fleet
1 consequent disturbance in the movements of stocks of
g.x-' oj band, and ordered, will cause business for the next
six months to be skirmish, yet the balances between the im
porters and the retailors can be adjusted equitably and sStis
factari.y to both parties, provided the creditors are lenient and
prudent, fom goods may hare to be returned to the shelves
t4 If wholesale dsr, but as the stock is largely composed
ef notp-raUe staples, lime will enable the holders to work
ff the supply- At the worm our Importers hare merely pre
nticipaled the demand, fur no one, we think, doubts the lact
of a oer fleet rendezvousing here in the spring and fall of next
year. The tact that we have on bind a large slock wherewith
to ft out whalemen, will induce shipowner to send out their
row:ls, with orders, not only to recruit at the islands, but to
epply themselves with the goods that, ordinarily furnished at
home, can be pat on board here quite as well as in New Bed
ford. Our own merchants too have si mug inducements to lit
oat whalemen from this port, and as we know that there is
now as there always has been considerable money here seeking
paying investments, much of it can be brought forward to be
used in this manner.
While the commercial horizon does not look clear, we can
not think that its appearance foretells financial storn ; with
prudence and patience the exigencies of the situation can be
met, and by retrenchment in public as well as private affairs
the prosperity of the islands can be secured, and business ex
pand again with new life and vigor.
la this coaneetioo we have to congratulate oar citizena upon
the establishment of Ibe Chamber of Commerce in oar midst,
and with their counsels to guide as we have no right to de
spair ef the future.
The auction sales during the week have been very quiet and
confined to "scrub lots " principally. The Hawaiian bark
Mauna Lo, aailed oo Thursday with supplies for the Guano
Islands and to cruise. As the carries a large complement
of mea, and Li fully lilted fjr whaling, it is surmised that she

Tbe Versailles court-martial has convicted fewer
Communists. of crimes worthy of death than was
generally expected at first. Lallier and Ferre are
the only men so far sentenced to die. Ferre is yet
a younz man, being only twenty-Ore years of age,
but be bas a bad record, and bas always been a
champion rather of disorder than ot liberty. ITe
was indicted for setting fire to the Talace of Fi
nance, tbe Prefecture of Police, and other build
ings, ordering the assassination of the hostages, and
usurping civil authority. He was Procurateur
GetwraU and also Delegate to tbe Prefecture of
Police during the reign of tbe Commune. Lullier,
who is knows as "the mad lieutenant," took an
active part in the defense of Paris against the V er
aillists. and was commander of the artillery of tbe
Sixth. Eleventh and Twentieth LegionaV He was
con?picuous for his dashing ferocity, and was in
dicted for leading movements designed for tbe
pillage and destruction of Paris. The conspirators
whose crimes were not all proven, or were more
venial, have escaped with their lives and some of
them are probably surprised at their deliverance. ;
SATURDAY. NOVEMBER 4.
The question as to bow far and in what manner
the total failure of the " fall season" will affect
the business prospects of Honolulu, has been
pretty thoroughly discussed and is quite well
understood. While the pressure will undoubt
edly be heavy upon many, yet the "wise counsel
prevails of patiently and calmly doing the best
under the circumstances of bearing and forbear
ing under tbe unexpected general stagnation of
business. Practical and watchful economy must
of course more than ever recommend itself to
the study of all, as a 6tern necessity for a year to
come. Our importations of foreign goods during
the past summer and fall, have been unusually
heavy, and the balance of trade must consequently
be largely against us. But the customs receipts
are, as a matter of coarse, considerably in excess
of the previous year, and we believe will be
found to exceed those of the previous correspond
ing number of months in any fiscal year of the
past ten. And this brings us to tbe consideration
of a question of great importance to the country
at large. In what manner and to what extent
will the business reverses under consideration
affect the public Treasury ?
The customs receipta for the year 1870,
amounted to the sum of $223,815.75. In view
of the increased importations of goods which
have paid duties, it is fair to set down the re
ceipts for the present year from that source as
considerably above those of the last. We are
aware that there are large stocks of liquors in
bond in the Custom House stores, and considera
ble quantities of whalemen's supplies in the
same condition, but these do not in any way
enter into the calculation. The Treasury Low
ever, has received the cash for the duties on the
large stocks of goods with which the stores, both
wholesale and retail of our city, are filled. The
natural result of this hopelessly crowded condi
tion of the market will be to stop all importations,
beyond actual necessities, for a long period.
And in consequence, this source of supply for
the revenue will be cut off to such an extent as to
render the customs receipts for a year to come
comparatively nominal. As the public revenue
is largely, if not principally derived through the
customs, it will be seen that the Treasury, after
all, will ultimately feel the eflects of the loss of
the Arctic whaling fleet more sensibly than will
the public at large. So that the lesson of econ
omy should come home with extra force to the
Ministry, who must be held strictly responsible
for the prudent management of the public finances.
Just at this juncture it would seem that ordinary
prudence should dictate retrenchment of expend
itures in every reasonable way. No large or
costly enterprises should be undertaken, the
pressing necessity for which is not clearly appar
ent. It is proposed however, as the government
organ condescends to inform us, to commence at
once tbe erection of a large and costly building
for government offices. The outlay for this bas,
it is true, been provided for by the last Bill of
Appropriations, and under ordinary circum
stances, the Ministry would be justified in pro
ceeding with the work, and indeed it would have
been expected by the country. But under the
existing 6tate of things, and the prospective con
dition of the finances, coupled with tbe fact that
the pressing necessity is not apparent for these
new government buildings, the sounder policy
would seem to be to postpone for a year at least,
the proposed expenditure.
Another though not so serious a direction in
which the scarcity of money will affect the gov
ernment receipts, is to be found in the difficulty
which the common people are already experien
cing in raising the money wherewith to pay taxes
now duer With some it is always a bard task to
get' together the five or six dollars to meet the
tax collector's demand, but the present year, with
that class of the people, it will be more difficult
Unless retrenchment is at once made the rule
by tbe Ministry, the prospect is, that a year
hence will find us with two fine buildings to
adorn the capital city of the kingdom a grand
hotel and a grand government bouse, and an
empty treasury. Then, should an emergency
arise, we must borrow, on the best terms we
Whirlwinds, hurricanes and tempests, seem to travel on the
line of sight of annexation's eye. The United States did but
direct a gaxe once npon St. Thomas, and that unhappy island
has since been the sport of the elements ; and now the Sand
wich Islands, concerning which there has been some little pri
vate dickering, have been ravaged by a feartul wind and deso
We find the foregoing in a recent number of
the Pittsburg Weekly Dispatch, one of the lead
ing journals of tbe Great West. Dickering is
" American " for bargaining or trading. We
bad thought that tbe idea of annexing these is
lands to the Great Republic had been utterly ex
ploded since the war of tbe rebellion effectually
killed tbe slave power. Tbe pet idea of those
who formerly schemed for the absorption of
Hawaii, was to make it a second Cuba in the mat
ter of sugar and negroes, but now that the " fif
teenth amendment " precludes the " peculiar in
stitution," "annexation's eye " can surely ' see
nothing attractive in this direction. . Ilut who is
it that has been doing thi8 " little privite dicker
ing " on our account ? .
Tlie Lato Alexander Adams.
We briefly chronicled lost week the death of this,
by far the oldest resident on the islands. Bat Cap
tain Adams was a man of mark, whose exit from the
stage of Hawaiian life deserves more than a mere
passing notice. Gifted with an iron constitution,
tbe foundations of which were laid among the
heatber-cl&d hills of old Scotland,' he was vigorous
and strong long after the period when other men
succumb to the wear of years, and at ninety his in
tellect was unclouded and his memory wonderfully
retentive. His was indeed 44 a green old age," and
it was exceedingly interesting to hear the cheerful
old man, long after the light of his eyes had gone
oat, describing the scenes through which he had
passed in his eventful career, and " fighting his bat
tles o'er again.' Arriving at these islands in the
year 1810, he soon attracted the notice of Kameha-
meha L, who was then actively interested in getting
together a fleet of vessels. He became a great
favorite, with the King, who entrusted him with the
command of one of his vessels, in which he per
formed a voyage to China and back. He was also
appointed by tbe King as the first regular pilot for
the port of Honolulu, which office he continued to
hold for nearly thirty years. Since 1844, however,
he has mostly resided at his garden at Kalihi, near
the city, where until within the past few years he
occupied his time in cultivating fruits. Some
twenty-five or thirty years ago, he was induced by
the solicitations of friends, to reduce to writing the
leading incidents of his life, and it was printed in
pamphlet form for private circulation. We have en
deavored in vain to procure one of these pamphlets,
though we doubt not a copy could be found in some
library collections that of the late R. C. Wyllie, for
instance. Captain Adams was three times married
in these islands, and raised children by each wife.
His great grandchildren are numerous, and we have
among us tbe fourth generation; sprung from this
hardy Scotch pioneer. Thus bas passed away the
last link between the age of Hawaiian barbarism
and that of that of the Fifth Kameh&meha.
Another Critic on Hawaii.
We verily believe there never was a country of
its size about which so much has been written
and so little truth spoken as these islands. It
would seem as though there was something in
our climate, the air that surrounds our sunny
isles, that impels about everybody who visits
us and who bas an ordinary " talent " for com
position, to proceed to enlighten the world with
a book or a series of otherwise printed sketches
of us poor islanders and our surroundings. Of
course where 6o much is written from so many
different stand-points of observation, we come in
for a large share of misrepresentation and some
times of abuse.
About four years ago, a stranger arrived here
from California, and during a stay of a few
months became somewhat known as a speculative
purchaser of the rather unpoetical article cf
molasses, for shipment, in which business report
says he was shrewd enough to corner " to his
own profit, some thousands of dollars. In one
respect at least, resembling a countryman of bis
who once occupied a high official position here,
having made " a good thing " financially during
bis stay, be proceeds, on his return to his native
land, to write his " Hawaiian Experiences."
These are in the form of serial letters published
in recent numbers of the Boston Commercial
Bulletin, under the nom de plume of "A Cape
Horner." In these letters be is sufficiently per
sonal, abusing by name some of our citizens, and
praising others, and, aside from some futile
straining after wit, is creditably keen at ob
serving and noting down his observations. Ho
appears to have scrutinized the various aspects of
the Reciprocity Treaty scheme, and tells us
what some perhaps did not know before that it
was owing to a private pique of Mr. Harris that
pulu was excluded from tbe schedule of island
products proposed to be admitted free. He ap
pears to have imbibed a thorough disgust for the
whaling business and whalemen, and grossly
libels the latter. But taken as a whole, the let
ters are quite chatty and readable, despite their
generally depreciating tone.
In the Christian Union, Henry Ward Beecher's
journal, of the 13th of last September, we find
the same gentleman descanting on Sectarianism
in Hawaii," and to this, the least truthful and
just of his productions, be affixes his name
Julius A. Palmer, Jr. He commences bis
strictures on our sectarianism " by acknowl
edging that " a great work bas been accom
plished ; a nation iB redeemed from paganism ;
a community is under a system of laws akin to
those of all Christendom ; " and then insinuates
a gross libel, to the effect that liberty of con
science and freedom of form in religious matters
is not granted to all! What more ridiculous
than the following sentence :
The absurd devotion of the American element of Hawaii to
a barbarian language can be explained on no other ground than
that, by it, a virtual barrier is maintained against the entrance
of the various denominations of professing t;bristians.
Such trash is hardly worth attempting to an
swer, were it not that it will be believed abroad.
That the American missionaries did not, when
they arrived here fifty years ago, begin at once
the task of educating the nation in the English
language, may, by some shallow thinkers, be
deemed to Lave been an error. That they, or
any one else, have ever opposed or even failed to
promote every feasible attempt to cultivate that
language among the people, is utterly false, and
Mr. Talmer must have known it to be so when
he penned that sentence. He quotes the Hon.
Mr. Phillips, the Attorney General, as authority
to prove that the Hawaiian language is 44 one of
tbe most incomplete and impotent dialects the
world has ever known." Doubtless to Mr.
Phillips, who does not pretend to understand a
single word of Hawaiian, it is a most " impotent
dialect," as would be any other language with
which he had not either the faculty or the appli
cation to become acquainted. We are further
told that " the ordinary verb 4 to be, in its
various forms, is not found in the Hawaiian, so
that tbe most common expressions must be ar
rived at in a very clumsy manner." The mode
of expressing the verb 44 to be," so far from be
ing clumsy, when used by an intelligent and
educated native, is capable of affording the most
minute and varied shades of meaning. Prof.
Alexander, who is an authority, and who ex
presses an opinion as to the qualities of the lan
guage adverse to that attributed to Mr. Phillips,
says in bis Grammar, p. 28 :
u In European languages, when the predicate is a noun or
adjective, it is connected to the subject by the copula or verb
41 to be." In Hawaiian, this verb is expressed by the arrange
ment of the words, aided in some cases by certain aXHrmative
paruciea, wmcn are also used witb verbs."
, Nothing is easier, or more common than to de
preciate a language, of the construction and
peculiarities of which one has no knowledge
The few who have made a thorough study of the
Hawaiian, find that it has many and unexpected
A good portion of the letter before us is taken
up with a plea for the 44 mission " of the Eng
lish Church at these islands, which the writer
seems to have been particularly attracted to,
(although he goes out of his way to declare him
self 44 by birth and profession a New England
CongregationaliBt,") and which he asserts was
44 bitterly opposed by the Americans." Where
is his proof for this assertion, as well as for an
other, to the effect that 44 in a recent missionary
work, the English Church of Hawaii is reckoned
among the heathen influences which the mission
aries are called upon to controvert? "
. Mr. Palmer takes particular pains to let his
readers know that he associated in the highest
circles, and rather indelicately, we think, repro
duces what was perhaps casually said there in his
On the whole, we must class this new writer
on Hawaiian affairs with many who have pre
ceded him, as misrepresenting and defaming us,
either willfully or stupidly.
A. Winter- in the Arctic.
The whaleship Japan, of Melbourne, N. S. W.,
was wrecked in the Arctic Ocean, in the month of
October, 1870, and her officers and crew, with the
exception of six, who were lost at the time of the
wreck, spent the following eight months and seven
teen days among the natives of East Cape, at the
expiration of which time they were taken off by an
American whaler and brought to this port, during
tbe present season. The treatment received by the
shipwrecked mariners at the hands of the Esquimaux,
was hospitable and kind in the extreme. The never
abundant stores of food were always freely shared
with the strangers, and in tbe shelter of their huts
squalid and dirty, but . warm they were made
welcome. The life experienced during those long
winter months must have been monotonous and
wearisome in the extreme, and the return of spring
and 44 open water " with a prospect of a return to
the scenes of a civilized life, was hailed with joy.
Long journeys were frequently -undertaken, when
the weather would allow, on sleds drawn by dogs.
The following is an account of one taken near the
close of the winter, by Mr. Edward W. Irving, first
officer of the Japan, from whose journal we have
been permitted to copy it : -
44 Saturday,' April 1st, 1871 Weather clear with a
sharp cutting wind from north. Niminwakai, (my
host) and myself take a sleigh for Marcus Bay. After
passing a ravine several hundred feet deep, of very
wild appearance, we arrive at tbe South Head of
Marcus Bay, where we find a few natives located 6
houses and put up at tbe house of a friend of Nim
inwakai. Are treated very kindly, have a supper of
walrus hide and meat, putting me in mind of the
many, many meals of this kind I have been very
glad to get, although I eannot say it is a luxury.
The ravine, gorge or causeway for it is something
of each through which we passed this morning has
a very singular appearance. Tbe general trending
of it is about east and west. On the south side, the
rocks and boulders show their black barren heads
above the pale white sheet of snow that reigns every
where. Tbe north side is covered with overhanging
precipices of snow and ice, that seem already to fall
and bury you in one immense avalanche. In fact,
in several instances, we saw great boulders of frozen
snow, almost in our path, that no doubt, bad broken
from the mass above, comiDg down with tremendous
velocity. Making the descent from the east with
dangerous railroad speed, we get out of the ravine
and crossing a very stony country on a gentle de
cline, we make good time to the hut of a reindeer
man. He was sorting his herd, which amounted to
about 500, 1 Bbould judge. Tbey were all perfectly
tame and as docile as our domesticated cattle. I
handled several, and tbey seemed to court tbe ca
resses, and followed me about, rubbing their silvery
Doaes against my arm until driven back into their
respective places by the herdsman. Leaving this
hut, we make flying time over ice as smooth as glass
for several miles, then over a rather rough country,
reached the Sonth Head of Marcus Bay, after a drive
of 3.J hours. " Found the water entirely clear of ice
as far as tbe eye could reach to the southward. '
Tbe following is tbe record of tbe ship's company
of the Japan : Drowned at the time of the wreck :
Mr. Coles, 3d officer, of Hobartown ; the steward,
name unknown ; K Miller, carpenter ; and seamen,
as follows : Henry Collins, Svdney ; J. C. Martin,
New Haven County ; James Armstrong, Liverpool ;
Wm. Woolworth, London or Melbourne ; James
Muer, of Hobartown, was frozen to death. ..
The following persons were saved : Capt. Barker,
1st officer E. W. Irving, Australia ; 2nd officer Wm.
Limas, Portugal ; 4th officer Aaron Price, Norfolk
Island ; Wm. Lee, cooper ; boat-steerers Ed. Cook,
Bay of Islands, New Zealand ; Pedro Fornander,

t ONE AND A HALF CENT PKtt
The Mormon Question. We Bee no reason wbv
there should be so much venom in Salt Lake over
the Mormon qnestion. There are many causes for
uneasiness in tbe Mormon mind, but why Gentiles
become unduly excited is inexplicable. Polygamy
bas flourished in Utah for years, and Brigham
l oung ana nis ieuowers nave come to look upon
it as an indispensable institution. It is not at all
strange that men who have never committed mat
rimony should be loud-moutbed, and should be
come guilty of extreme acts and reprehensible
conduct toward tnose wno nave Been red to them
selves each tweniy-five or more women as wives.
The simple thoagbt ot a man being called "father"
by one, two or three hundred infants of assorted
ages and sizes, is sufficient cause for single men to
go to war with Utah, or any other country where
such a state of affairs exists. The preponderance
ot antJ-polygamists is so great in this country,
that Brigham Young and bis numerously-wived
people cannot reasonably expect to keep on with
the same selfish and iniquitous monopoly of females
that they have enjoyed for years. Tbe Gentiles
are not allowed to have more than one wife each,
and as they are in tbe majority, with law on their
side, they are certainly justified in trying to put a
stop to the monopoly in women, and in punishing
Mormons who have set at nought tbe laws. It is
perhaps but natural that the Mormon papers should
call tbe grand jury which is indicting them for
"licentiously cohabiting with numerous women,"
bad names, and term tbe United States Court
"Pontius Pilate's Court," as does tbe Salt Lake
Herald. There can be but one end of these Mor
mon difficulties, and that will be the extinction of
the system of polygamy, and tbe sooner and more
gracefully tbey accept the sitnation, tbe better it
will be for tbe Church of the Latter Day Saints.
There is no nse of fighting over it. because some
body might get killed, and the result would be all
the same. Alta. j
From the Fijis.
By the last arrival from New Zealand, advices
from Fiji contain the following of interest i
ATTACK ON A PLANTATION.
With reference to the late attack by the mountain
eers on the plantation of Messrs. Abbott and Gaol,
we have received further particulars from a resident
on the Ra coast. The natives who made the attack
were Eai Colos, and belong to the town of Kutten
gary. After the first attack Messrs. Abbott and
Gaul made every preparation, in expectation of a
second one ; and took the precaution of cutting port
holes all round tbe building. Tbe natives came the
second time, one carrying tire for the purpose of fir
ing tbe house, but when fired upon they hurriedly
retreated taking the dead body of the chiefs son
with them. The report of firearms, however, brought
up a lot of coast natives, on whose approach the
mountaineers made off, leaving the dead man (who
was shot through the neck) behind them. A report
was brought to the white settlers that the chief of
JSatipgary had sent a 44 tambu " to four neighboring
towns, stating that he was 44 hungry for white man's
flesh," and asking them to join him in an attack
upon tne whites on Saturday. That day passed over,
nowever, witnout any demonstration being made by
tne natives. -
TOTS- LABOB. TBAFFIC.
A Commission appointed by King Cakobau, to in
quire into certain queations and details connected
with tbe labor trade, met on Tuesday week at the
Council Chamber. J. he Commission have subsequent
ly sat morning and evening, and have examined
Captain McLiver, of the Nukulau ; Captain Freeman,
of tbe Swallow, and several other witnesses ; eliciting
many important tacts, wmcn cannot, nowever, with
out defeating the euds for which the Commission is
now sitting, be as yet made public. There can be no
doubt of the vast importance of the subject now un
der investigation, and, from tbe well-known ability
of the gentlemen who are pursuing this arduous
task, results aflecting to a great extent the future
prosperity and credit of t iji may be expected.
