Foin iaR GovERNou. The people of Lahaina
were very 6orry to part with Governor Kapena,
and made quite an ovation (In which natives and
foreigners joined) on the occasion of his departure
to come to Honolulu to reside, as Minister of
Hotel Bonos. The present administration have
decided that the interest on Hotel Bonds most be
paid, Ministers coastrueing the "letter of the
bond " to mean that, and nothing else. Conse
quently the suit of the bondholders against the
Minister of Finance, whieb has been on the calen
dar of the Supreme Court for several terms,
awaiting a full bench of justices, will now be with
drawn. 1 Lis will be very agreeable news to
some parties. . - ,

Which come in the night-lime ot sorrow and rare, ,
And bring back tho features mlnos pie used to wear !''.

the turn of political parties, and It is therefore
uncertain whether we shall see Dr. Scott again.
Should be however return, in any capcity, he
would meet with a hearty welcome from our
Police Cocbt. During the past two weeks the
offences that have come before the Police Court for
adjudication were mainly dranks and smuggling.
There were in toto 13 druoks, of which one half hap
pened during the Merry Christmas Eve, so as to
afford the culprits a quiet and undisturbed time for
reflection vpon the past merry-making daring the
Christmas day in a secluded and cool lock-op. Also
four cases of fast riding were fined.. In smuggling
cases the past lew weeks Have been rich, and unfor
tunately lor tne smugglers, their ventures all were
failures instead cf bonanzas. There were seven
cases cf opium smuggling which netted to the Ha
waiian treasury, besides the forfeited opium, the
snug little Christmas present of $008; also two cases
or smuggling of knives in false trunk bottoms, which
netted $101. Thus it appears that the eyes of Mr.
Markham are as well gifted as his nose. One case
of assault and battery was fined 8 13. GO, which
shows that the fine art of painting eyes ia considered
an accomplishment of value.
Ax Old Resident Gone. Died at Ewa, on this

years, a resident of these islands for nearly fifty

wood in tbe boutu raciGc. One of tbe vessels,

Wednesday last the 27th intt., was the festival
of St. John the Evangelist, which has from ancient
times been observed by the brethren of ' the
mystic tie." In this city, tbe officers elect cf the
two lodges (Le Progres de TOceanie and Hawaiian
No. 21) were installed at half-past seven, in their
respective rooms, after which ceremonies the mem
bers of "Hawaiian" repaired to tbe rooms of " Le
Progres," and the two bodies numbering some fifty
persons, marched thence in proceesion to tbe Ha
waiian Hotel, to partake of a banqaet gives to
the fraternity by P. M. Kalakaaa, on the termina
tion of his tenure cf office as Master cf Lodge le
Progres tie l'Oceanie, No. 124. It was a circum
stance much regretted by the brethren that on this
particular occasion to which the King bad looked
forward for months with pleasant anticipations, be
was prevented from being present by illness. In
the absence of the host, the chair in tbe East was
worthily occupied by P. M. J. O. Domiois, supported
by W. Masters D. Dayton and D. K. Fyfe, while the
Wardens of the two lodges occupied seats side by
side in the west and south. The table was spread
with a profusion of delicacies and aobstantials to
tempt the most fastidious appetite, arranged in tbe
best style of that prince of caterers von'Ohlhaffen,
and for a couple of hours full justice was done to the
feast. The first sentiment propoeeJ was that cf
their Majesties tbe King and Queen and the mem
bers of the Royal Family, followed by the usual
regular toasts of tbe Grand Codies, of the presiding
and other officers of each lodge, and of Fast Masters
who were present. P. M., W. F. Allen gave
" Brother P. M. Kalakaaa." with appropriate re
marks, which was drank standing, with cheers. A
number of vol an tee r sentiments followed, eliciting
pertinent responses from P. Masters Fornander ana
Dominis and W. Master Dayton, and the very en
joyable reunion was brought to a olose about eleven
o'clock by the brethren singing in masonic circle
the time-honored and always appropriate, " Should
auld acquaintance be forgot," Sec. Daring the
evening the government band, stationed in front of
the Hotel, discoursed appropriate music.

It was now AprlL Tbe reply of tU t rench
government to tie cottaatjicatWai which 1, had
addressed to It could not be far off. Moc. Dr ooyn
de L'llujs, then VI in later for r'orrlgn Affairs, had
casdsn to b lalofoieJ that the EiBfSfSf had
issued a decrew, on vLe 24th ol the precding Feb

which the King bad conferred upon toe, without
losing my right ot French cltirenstlp. Another
decree, dated the 5th of March, conferred upon me
tbe Legion of Honor, so that thw Minister recog
nized my care cf French interest in the Islands by
Conferring upon me f isiingulsbed honor. There
was no teason. therefore, why I shcu) J hot set
myself Immediately to wotk, and pursue courage
ously th tak, the difficulties of which 1 could not
conceal from myM-lf. but which my ambitlou and
my youth made pleasant la prospect.
I had dwell in the Wands bin yvara, and I
can say without fal modesty, I had woiked hard;
not that I take to myself much credit fur that.. 1
had studied the country, It language, oiiglit, tud
history ; I had reckoned up well its means ol pro
duction, its natural markets, political tendencies,
and the administrative reforms which werw posal
ble. Like all men who labor alone, 1 had arrived
at certain conclusions, little nbsolnl, peihsp,
but which having become convictions In my mind,
gave me tbe necessary strength to apply them,
without allowing me to be deterred by the diffl-
eulliea of detail, la youth, one rarely doubt
oneself, and when pre conceived ideas are joined
to the result of persevering labor, confidence in
one's self quickly begets a like confidence In
others, and rallies hesitating men around him who
has often no other merit than to know clearly
what be wants, and to wish tor to-day what he
iohed for yesterday and will wish for to-morrow.

'yllie was its Chief. He had had the direction
of Foreign Affairs for twenty years. His age and
Us eiperience gave him great weight; but habit
uated not to meet contradiction, and to proceed
in his own way. be waa astonished, at the new
ideas of his new colleagues, and preached to us
often (without producing any effect) of the advan
tage of the system ol balancing ffecls, which bad
served him ao long and so well, but which, In our
opinion, lad had lls.day. Mr. Hopkins was 111. at
ease in tho Department of the Interior, -wLkh re

He was intelligent, but Idle, and relied entirely

Mr. Harrla, th Attorney General, on tho contrary
was a bard worker, very absolute In his views,
persevering to excess, unpopular, but always in
tbe breach, defending his Ideas foot to loot. He
carried his way by the strength of his convlotlons.
At the moment when I took charge of the
Finance Department, the balance of tbe Budget,
though still unbroken, was maintained with sliO
culty. The receipts were growing less, and the
expenses were increasing. Tho credit of the
Slate, which had been but little used, was good
euougb, but waa not much better than that vf a
solvent private gentleman. The last loan had
been negotiated at 10 per cent. The customary
rate of interest In the Islands was from 10 to 12
ner cent. The tax collectors, who had been

Every year the number of those exempt fioin
lazes increased, Irom one cause or another. . The
receipt front the customs were maintained at
about the same figure ; but the duties bore too
heavily on some things and not heavily enough
upon others. People bad grown habiluated to
this, and habit I all powerful. It was neeessary
however to change tbe state of things, whitU fate
us only a prospect ot constantly decreasing reve
nue, and a budget of expenses which the necessity
ot constructing roads and improving harbors
would constantly Increase. , Imports were dlmio
UUIng, and general export remained about (h
same. The receipt of tbe customs of Honolulu,
which had reached 8100,000 In 1850, had fallen to
$120,000 in J8C3, The number of wbalesblps,
which had reached 440 la 1851, wo only ft) In
18C3. Tbe exports of the products of tho soil bad
however increased, so that, from $300,000 In 1861,
it bad riuen to 8740,000 In I8C3C Sugar, molasses,
rice, bides, coffee, constituted the greater part of
our products. Agriculture was however In it in
fancy, and it waa to it that I looked, not only for a
considerable increase" of our ' cotnineVcr, tut for
the moral and physical regeneration of our people.
The time was favorable for directing tbe efforts of
our capitalist and agriculturists into this channel.
The decrease of the whaling fleet Is easily ex
plained. The discovery of oil wells in. Peonsyl-.
vania, and the substitution of a number of Inven
tions for - oil, as well as of steel for whalebone,
had considerably diminished tho demand for the
product of the whole fishery. The whales, being
pursued murderously in the sea of Ochottk and
Bhering Straits, were abandoning those localities
and forcing their way more and more Into tbe Icy
solitudes which surround the pole. Tho French
whalemen were the first to be discouraged, and
bad ent irely abandoned to the Amf lean this des
cription of enterprise. Thcso last in their turn
were getting discouraged, and every year the
number cf their slips was dIu.iniLji2. . The.
whalers, the principal sources of profit to our
merchant, threatened to fail us altogether f wef
mast need therefore seek other resource and
begin to cultivate, on a larger scale, product
wLich would yield a certain return. , ; ...; j !
Several kinds of cultivation had been succes
sively tried and abandoned, for one cause or
another. An epidemic which had manifusted itself
among the coffee plantation had discouraged our
planter. Cotton yielded a little belter, but the
end of the war of Secession In tho United States ,
ould soon restore to tbe Southern Bute tie
monopoly of which they had been temporarily
deprived. Rice culture had been timidly tried,
and for poor qualities the competition with China,'
where labor is very low, was impossible. We
produced a superior quality of rice, for which
California paid us a good prlqe ; but how would it
be when North and South Carolina should recom
mence their exportation?
Sugar was tbe only Industry which remained.
Our soil was admirably fitted for the cultivation
tf cane ; but labor was very ecarce and our equip
ments were not at all satisfactory. We had but a
small number of ateam engines, and capital waa
not abundanL The Arst dUlouUy waa the roost
serious, and that it was important to solve prompt- .
ly.' capital would follow where land and labor
were ready to make for it abundant returns. 'l b
experience which we had bad upon a small seal,
had shown to us that w could produce sugar at a -price
which would allow a sufficient margin for the
cultivator. There eould bo na doubt that wb-av- n
ever the plantations should increase so as to occupy
a large acreage, and should poesesa more perfect
equipments, this price wonld not fall. California
and all tbe coast of America offered us a sura
outlet. The competition with China was Inevitable J
but wa had tbe advantage of less than half the
distance to bring our sugars lo Fan Francisco
and the reduction in freight would enable us to . ,
meet tbe competition.
In our next chapter cf translations from Mr. de
Varlgncy's book, we shall show how that gentle
man prepared himself to meet the rmcrgoncy suc
cessfully, and bow thereby the tide waa turned la
our favor. Ed. P. C. A.) ;
