SATURDAY, DECEMBER 2.
Public holidays, like Sundays, are supposed to
tie made for the people. The. 2 is nothing that
tends so much to arouse and foster a spirit of
nationality and a love of country in the people,
as the proper and intelligent observance of holi
days set apart to commemorate some important
"event in the national history. As an instance in
point, observe the immense influence produced j
upon the American character by the universal
and enthusiastic observance of their principal
holiday. There are those who assert, and with

veneration for Republican institutions would cor
respondingly decrease. The grand idea of self
government thus perpetuated is the underlying
canse, and & recognized alike in the squibs of
the school-boy, the roar of cannon, and the some
times bombastic utterances of the orator that
provoke our smiles. An occasional holiday is
tineful too, serving as a breathing spell, a relaxa
tion of the constantly bent bow of labor, when
both the employer and the employee can meet on
the equal plane of a common enjoyment. In
thin particular, holidays have a tendency to pro
duce the healthy sentiment of a common human
ity a sentiment that too often requires to be
stimulated in these days.
National holidays in Hawaii nei appear to have
arrived at a condition of tameness that entitles
than to bo called non-descript. Last Tuesday,
for instance, was neither a Sunday, a fast day,
nor apparently, a holiday, as such days are ob
served in other countries. Lias government no
duty to perform in this matter, beyond simply
closing public offices and firing a salute? Aside
from the anniversary of His Majesty's birthday,
the 2Sth of November is the only strictly national
holiday that we have, and the native race, pro
verbially fond of public shows and celebrations,
is reduced to adopt the gala days of foreigners.
Formerly, the 31st of July, the anniversary of the
restoration of the flag of the country, was a great
day of festivity and rejoicing throughout the
Islands, and we were wont to have public ora
tions, where thousands listened to the rehearsal
of the history of the past and were urged to
renewed hope and exertion for the future of the
nation ; there were grand processions, -with
badges and waving banners, a grand mesa dinner,
and the day wound up with a display of fire
works, and possibly a ball.- But the observance
of that day, has, unwisely we think, been drop
ped, because, it is said, that the historical recol
lections it evoked were unpleasant to some of the
King's foreign-born subjects. And so, for that
reason, the memory of ' Kamebameha the
Good," as Kauikeaouli was rightly named
which was inseparably connected with the ob
servance of this day, as well as that of the noble
chiefs now passed away who surrounded him on
those public occasions, must be suffered to sink
into oblivion. y
Something undoubtedly might be made of the
day which has just passed off " so lamely and
unfashionably," were any pains taken by govern
ment to instruct the people as to the real mean
ing of the celebration ; the history of the mission
of Richards and Ilaalilio to Europe and America,
and what came of it ; and the central idea of a
National Independence. If, indeed, our -rulers
deem the understanding of the people of any
importance in that direction.
"We publish on the fourth page of to-day's pa
per, a sermon preached by the Rev. Mr. William
son, of the Aogliean Church in this city, on the
lesson of the life and death of the Bishop of Me
lanesia, on account of whose murder we printed
in our last. This painful occurrence must pro
duce a profound impression wherever it becomes
known, and England particularly will be aroused,
and demand a prompt and vigorous exertion of
the Government to put down forever the infamous
traSc in human beings which has been the im
mediate cause of this calamity. The press has
often heretofore urged the necessity of putting a
stop to this nefarious traffic, in the interests of

We are glad to eee that our supplement of last
week Lad the effect that it was designed to have,
viz., to call public attention in a forcible manner
to the need that exista for eome energetic fore
arming of ourselves against a possible calamity
such as -sraa portrayed in the " 0'reat Fire in
It seems to ne, that in eneumerating the ad
vantages arising from the establishment of a city
.Government for Honolulu, the control of certain
nuisances, and abating of eome evil now existing,
might be made feasible. We know that effort
have been, and are being made to take proper
care of property, but what we most need is a
council, that, meeting every month eay, can take
immediate notice of complaints, and frame laws
and orders to correct abuses. The total abolish
ing of the building of grass huts within certain
limits should be insisted upon, and some provision
made for the removal of those now standing in
our midst. '
Th TVrd nf Health have done what they
could, we presume, to mitigate evils already ex
isting and to provide for possible contingencies in
a sanitary point of view. At the same time,
there are many little things of which property
owners have cause to cumpun
within the province of a city council, but which
do not properly belong to the health officer's de
portment. The officers to whom complaints are
now made, have their own peculiar duties to per
form, and we can hardly ask them to take cog
nizance of the little annoyances of every day life.
Our newspapers are open to correspondents on
these as well as other subjects; but the fact is
that notes addrestsed to the public through Mr.
Editor, though they may call public attention to
the exibtence of an evil, at the same time afford
room for the bhifting or responsibility in the
matter to the public at large ; and we know that
' what is everybody's business is nobody's.

cleaned out, and useless articles removed. Then,
when called upon, our Fire Department can give
full scope to their powers and show that their
claims to thorough organization and efficiency are
as we believe them to be, well founded.
It is the part of ordinary prudence to discredit
the gossip of common rumor, unless one knows
precisely on what it is founded -and then in
deed it ceases to be rumor and becomes fact.
Somehow this community is so constituted, its
elements are bo leaky, that the air is frequently
filled with rumors, of one sort or another, and I
the journalist, while he listens to all, ventures to
credit few or none for the purposes of his pro
fession. During the past ten days however, there
has been afloat a rumor of coming changes in
government that, first covertly and 6ccretly whis
pered by a few, has gone on increasing in tone
and volume until now it is openly talked of at
the street corners. The clianges that Madam
Rumor now insists upon as being on the tapis,
extend to the composition of the Bench of the
Supreme Court. But even the hint of a possible
change in the highest tribunal of the country
that sacred aegis of the rights of every man, wo
man and child invests rumor with an importance
that cannot but arouse public solicitude. Nor is
this natural feeling of solicitude 'at all allayed
when reflection brings to mind the vaulting and
unscrupulous ambition of some now in power.
Madame Rumor bath it, that the office of His
Hawaiian Majesty's Minister Resident at Wash-
I ington, is to be created ; and that the appoint-
to fill this post will be followed by a
change in the office of the Minister of Foreign
Relations. We would suggest that, in view of
these rumored changes, the Government embrace
the opportunity thus afforded, of recognizing the
importance and high standing of the German
element in this Kingdom.
.In any event, so far as the Cabinet itnelf is
concerned, a change for the worse is not among
.the probabilities, but we can well perceive that
the rumored shuffling of the cards would afford
an opportunity for "vaulting ambition " to
realize its life-dream ; yet caution suggests that
it may o'er leap itself."
A. Home Picture.
Mr. Julius A. Palmer jr., continues bis " Hawaiian
Experiences " in the Boston Commercial Bulletin.
In the number for October 14, we find a vivid de
scription of what the writer saw in the Legislative
Halts of Hawaii nei, which, although decidedly col
ored, is sufficiently to the life to provoke a hearty
laugh, and with that view we reproduce it here.
At the time we resided at Honolulu, the Reci
procity treaty was agitating the local parliament.
These putres conttcripti are chosen from all colors
and languages; there is every grade, from the full
blooded Caucasian to the swarthy native. ' How
llien.'" asks an incipient politician, how do they
debate?" "How proceed according to Cushing's
Manual ? " These questions are answered in the
name of one man.
"And who might that individual be," do you fur
Bill Ragfldale is the parliament, the king, the
people. Bill ' Uagsdale is the power behind the
throne. In fact,! could not see bow the Sandwich
Islands could be run at all without Bill Ragsdale.
ilr. Ragsdale would require the grand total of
the eight columns before you to do him full justice.
We can only allow ourselves to touch" upon a few
of the incidents told of this wonderful character.
As the pen is mightier than the sword, so the
tongue, which no man can tame, is mightier than
the pen. This is the secret of Mr. Ragsdale7s posi
tion. On an elevated platform, facing the nobles
and the lower house, stands a young, half-caste
gentleman, apparently about thirty years of age.
As fast as a European makes a speech, it is ren
dered without the least hesitation into Hawaiian,
and vice versa. I make bold to say that the world
h; never known a more fluent interpreter. The
kingdom of Hawaii recognises the fact, and no
royal scion indulges in freaks of fancy with more
impunity than Bill Ragsdale. His character i not
above reproach ; what matter? Parliament cannot
it without him. He has been in the prison and the
coain-gan more tban once. Tne Halls of State
have then attempted to legislate with other aid,
but it was no use ; debates flagged, members
snored, interpreters asked speakers to repeat their
phraseology, and the Hawaiian chariot wheels
dragged as heavily as did those of Fbaraob in an
cient days. At last a bold member would move a
free pardon to Bill Ragsdale ; carried ; the king
signs it at once, and a messenger is despatched to
the chain-gang. II r. Ragsdale is never disturbed
by anything ; he greets the messenger with perfect
self possession, and with the air of the physician
called at last extremity in an important case. He
exchanges his prison dress for a coat of white cassi-
-niore, (he is a very Beau Brnmmel in toilet) and
en uts me noiine. in a rusu all is changed ; bis
electrical influence has put life into the assembly ;
gifted with a wonderlul natural eloquence, he
glows with enthusiasm in the debate, and either in
English or Hawaiian inspires every listener. He
is not always impartial ; be can put through or
crush a measure at his will, control the native ele
ment at bis pleasure.
When the Reciprocity treaty was debated in the
Hawaiian Parliament, it was with difficulty that
the natives could be brought to ee wbalun advan
tage iu adoption would be to the Island Kingdom.
Bill Ragsdale bad bad his head broken in a drunk
en frolic It was a critical moment Mr was
to make next day Vie speech in favor of the treaty.
A select commitue labored " with Mr. Ragsdale;

eybags attended to bis pocket. When I next naw
Mr. Ragsdale he was eloquently interpreting Mr.
great speech. With a handkerchief bound
around his head, he was carrying the House with
his splendid pleading and bis graceful gestures.
As a wind-up to this writer's criticisms ou our Is
land community, read the following paragraph :
Will these islands ever fall into American hands?
I think not; thej were virtually g overned by
American influence for many years. It was a Jew
ish Theocracy, repeated by Americans. Tey have
thrown off the yoke. The government, all foreign
ers, excepting Americans, a great proportion or
the natives are now strongly anti-American in
eVTbo8Pe"re ' th? two parties, efn-esponding to the
Wines and Tories of other lands, although there
no exact analoey as to their respective principles.
Tne "are diSt to define in general terms .
they are mostly local issues. One is thorougly
and obtnisivelAmerican. the other consei vative,
with a leaning toward Eugland.
xr Edito : I know nothing of the management
and discipline of the Queen's Hospital. It appear,
to be a worthy and noble institution, and a credit to
the community. A little occurrence, however warf
noticed on the street the other morning, which gave
an nnoleasant impression, to say the least. t A hand
cart, containing a plain red coffin, came trundling
down from the hospital to the Kawaiahao Church
yard, gaily escorted by a number of Hawaiian " frail
sisters," of whom there seem to be quite a number
at the hospital, under the provisions of the " act to
mitigate." The street echoed, as they went onward, io
the light laughter so sadly familiar in other well
known quarters of town, and yet more did it echo,
when in a few minutes the same unhallowed convey
ance rolled merrily back, laden with one half of the
heartless troupe, the other half acting as trundlers to
the trundled, while the man with the oo, who had
served as an extempore sexton, strode mightily along,
using his implement as a stylish walking stick. Per
haps it was all right. It might have been expected
from the poor lodging places to the east of Kaumaka
pili Church. I have ouly described it as it appeared.
Nov. 29th 1871. Hawaiian.
The Lixe via Fiji. In the Southern Cross, of
Auckland, Oct 8th, we find the following :
" Mr. Hall has decided to withdraw his Californian
service pending the decision of the Inter-colonial
Conference at Melbourne." Such is the latest intel
ligence respecting the Fijian traus-Pacific service, as
r I O I A..1 ! Hn1t,..nn
rewiveu tyr oju, nm, .i .
occur was anticipated Dy all who permitted them-
selves to look dispassionately at the subject." The
lukewarmness witn wmcn s r. uau s proposals were
received by the various Australian Governments
j arose from the general conviction that the effort
I being made was too much of the nature of a venture,
not having within itself the elements that ensure
: success. That effort was sustained with great spirit
1 in untoward ' circumstances ; and Mr. Hall, not
i having received . that encouragement which he had
expected, and on which his venture depended, has
prudently retired from the unequal contest. It is
needless to say that this is the close of the effort, the
withdrawal of the service "pending the decision of
the Inter-colonial Conference at Melbourne " being
intelligible. This result is not to be regretted. Any
prolongation of the struggle must only have deferred
the settlement of a question that has been too long
pending ; and now that the people of New South
Wales, and of Australia generally, can have their
minds undiverted from a trans-racifio mail service
oapable of answering every requirement in the most
satisfactory manner, we trust that the overtures so
recently made by the Government of New Zealand
will meet with a satisfactory response.
