The great need of these istind is roj ulatton With an incomparable climate, and with an area; of cultivable soil capable of euf portiog a pojm-' lation of a mitliun souls, tre have odIj a little more than half a hundred thousand. Of coar?e it is rery evident that under these circumstance nothing like a thorough development of the re sources ol the country can be expected. With out the men to till the soil the boon of recipro city, for which we have striven for so many jears, will in the end prove of but meagre re sults, cold r,a red with what it miht be if we had the people wherewith to improve our grand op portunity. II jw shall we get the needed popula tion? should now be the all-important question with Hawaiian statesmen. And we are glad to think that in this view we are at one with those who are at the head of affairs ; that the rein of the pessimists is at an end, and that an honest and earnest attempt will be made to procure the immigration that we need. Unquestionably there are thousands of " men with email means aod families " in Europe and America who, if they could be communicated with, would gladly avail themselves of the op portunities for the comparatively speedy acquisi tion of independence and competency which would be offered them in these islands. We know of estates the proprietors of which stand ready to-day to give to actual settlers alternate sections of fifty acres of land, rent free for five years, with the privilege of timber for fencing, etc. We know of others who offer free rental of good sugar land, adjacent to a mill, for a term of years, together with the means for cultivation and support for a man and family, for half the crop raised. Better terms than these could not certainly be asked or expected. A few families of the right sort once here and fairly at work, with the handsome prospects that would open up before them, and they themselves would prove the best of immigration agents by the reports tbey would send back to their old homes. The circular issued last week by the Board of Immigration, which we subjoin, is the initial step in the right direction, aod indicates quite plainly that the slumber in which for years that body has been wrapped is at last broken. The Board is awake and alive to the duties which properly belong to it, and Bees the possibilities of usefulness that it may accomplish. We trust that those to whom the circular is addressed will recognize the spirit of enterprise with which it is inspired, and promptly respond with the infor mation sought, as well as by giving any addi tional hints of value to the Board which may occur to them. Hosolclv, Jasdart 3, 1877. Sir, The Board of Immigration would be pleased to know if, on any of the estates of which you may be agents or owners, on which sugar, coffee, rice, or wool or other products are raised, any facilities will be off red to agriculturists who may be induced to immigrate to these islands with families? If you can ortr sot lands to be cultivated on shares, or wage?, or any flocks or herds to be tended on shares or wages? will vou kind! advise the Board of the locality, the kind of produce to be rained, the share or wages to be given to the cultivator ; also what amount of capital, if any, would be necessary ? If you have or can prepare a prospectus of the proposed business with the advantages likely to accrue to the immigrant, will you furnish the Board with a another of them' for distribution abroad through the agency of II. II. M's. Consuls? Would you be willing to reimburse the Board fur any advances made to such immigrants as might be induced to come here and accept your proposals ? The Board of Immigration is in hopes by giving publicity to the advantages now enjoyed by agricul turists in this country to. induce the immigration of men -with small means 'and families from various countries, thus adding to the population, more of an intelligent class of agriculturists whose presence will improve the country socially, and add to the value of estates by creating a demand for lands fit for till age or pasture. It has been suggested to the Board, . that in Ger many and other countries there are agricultural schools, some of the graduates of which oJght be in- ddeed-to eome to this eountry if certain of employ, ment at moderate wages, for one or two years, thus furnishing a class of men who would grow into over seers and managers of estates, or farmers on their own account, and supplying a want which will grow greater as the class of common laborers increases. If any such can be induced to come, will you find em ployment for any, for how many and at what wages ? In view of the interests of this country and of all who are owners or cultivators of the soil, or engaged in raising sheep or cattle,'' the Hoard hopes it will have your co-operation, and that you will be able to offer some inducements to - Intending immigrants. The Department of Foreign Affairs, through the Consuls and Representatives of the Government abroad, will assist the Board in its endeavor to in duce immigration and render such assistance to worthy immigrants as the means at the disposal of the Board will admit. , - By "giving an early ' and careful ' consideration to this circular and communicating with either of the Committee in person or by letter, . You will oblige, ' 1 . 'J. r ": w I- Greek, -. : ' . II. A. P. Carter, Committee of the Board of Immigration. Osi&u. the islands except Oahu, goYenunenf provides travelling physicians, who are suppose ji to attend upon the indigent sick among the native population, and for which they are paid. a fair stipend. The existence on this island of a public hospital, to which the natives may bave ready access for treatment and advice, wouldj it was thought, preclude the necessity of a similar physician here. This does not however prove to be the case, lor although the prejudice which once existed in the minds of the natives against going to the Qaeen'B Hospital has to a great ex tent been dissipated, it is still evident that mul titudes neglect or refuse to avail themselves of its privileges. Honolulu being tbo centre of attrac tion from all parts of the group, it follows that we have coostautlj bere a large gathering of die native people. Now it is very evident that but few among these are able to pay for the services of a foreign physician, and so when they become sick, the majority " take the chances " without a physician, while a few are the victims of native kahunas or quacks. The result is sad to contemvl nl.i. 1 C- h ttw Tpnnrt nf Mr. J. II. Brnwn Honolulu agent of the Board of Health (which we append) it appears that oat of a total of 214 deaths of natives during the past nine months, 135, or nearly 63 per cent, are reported as having received no medical attendance whatever. Of course we can only surmise how many of this sixty-three per cent, might bave been saved to their families and to the country ; but we are met with the question : Are we doing our duty to this people when , we allow such a state of things to continue without an effort at reform? We are however aware that the subject is a somewhat difficult one to handle ; but we bave confidence that it will not fail to be duly and carefully con sidered by the Board of Health, under the Presi dency of the Minister of the Interior. Hkalth Officb. I December 30th, 1876. J Bis Excellency J. Mott Smith j President of the Board of Health. fcc. dec. Sir : In making my monthly report to the Hon orable Board of Health for the month closing this. day. I am ab to report tli gt-nral health ir tlx l'ople a goo'l a iinal. Ann-ng ib naiire portion of the population, us i always tb cim at ibis waS'-n of the year wbe-n th- clunges in the wratLer are Midden from hent to cold, more- or k-s coughs and k'vers ate foutid. Tiie s'.rtfts have bern twice ckaaed. I have conveyed tt the Queen's Hospital three tick and iaJijcnt native. On the 25ih last . I condemned a quantity of badly cured fish found iu possession of a Chinese dealer on Nntianu ttrret which was destroyed. All parts of th city have been frequently viaited during the month. With great respect I would call Your Excel lency's attention to that small piece of government land situated in Kikihale. which Is a receptacle for all kinds of lubbi.-h and 8!th from the adjoiniog lots. I refWrt-d to this matter in my report for March, 1873. So long as the native people refuse with persist ent obstinacy as at present to avail them.oelves of the medical aid so freely offered them, an increase in the death record (a statement of which will be found below) must be expected. Duting the nine months ending this day in which the regulation requiring a burial certificate before interment has been in force, the record reveals the fact that 63 per cent of all who die within the city are entirely unattended, and 16 per cent, of thoe who have any medical aid receive it from illegal practiouers. Under this state of things no one should be surprised at the decrease of the native people. Total number of deaths reported for the month, 37, viz: 21 males and 16 females. 32 Uawaiians and 5 foreigners. I am, your Exceilt ncy o Obd't Servant. John II. Brown, Agent Board of Health. Spots, da you say dark and unseemly spots? And, lot us ask, who can say that be is free from spots? The bright star of our system, the fountain of life and light, the sun himself is not free from spots. Every individual character, every nation, however exalted and intelligent, has had and will continue to have its spots. To bide is not to cure them; what we have to do as Christains is to prevent or ameliorate them, so far as in our power. The surgical operation of cutting out does not always cure the sore, but not infrequently kills the patient. Public opin ion is often a better cure than the severest law, and sometimes it is the wiser plan to influence public opinion to action and make the best of an evil, rather than to enforce harsh laws which bave the effect not to eradicate but rather to drive the evil into dark corners, with consequent accumulated evils and eventually crimes. We are led to these reflections in view of the apparently large increase of late years in the number of births of illegitmato children in these islands children that have mothers, but whose infant lips will never learn to lisp the name of father. This is a well-known fact ; and if a false delicacy should admonish us to keep silence upon a subject that may reveal a dark spot in the character of Hawaii nei, we prefer to listen to the dictates of humanity and 6peak the truth. It is not our purpose to particularly investigate the causes which have led to this state of things, although one of the most obvious of causes will be found in the reckless importation of several thousand male immigrants in a country where the female sex is already in a most unnatural and dangerous minority. But we may say, just here, that the fact of the large increase in illegi timate births, though abstractly an evil carries nevertheless a redeeming consideration, inas much as it indicates an advance in the feelings of humanity. The Burplus in the present number of fatherless children is balanced by so many less cases of abortion and infanticide murders of. the innocents. . Any one who has resided twenty-five or thirty years in these islands must be aware of the fact that the crimes which we have named were fearfully prevalent among the people, a result, in most cases, of the then strin gent and inhuman laws in this particular. Since the repeal !of these laws, many thousands of in fants bave been suffered to live, and hence in a great degree the present apparent large increase of illegitimate births. Nature is always true to herself. Our native females, reared in the soft climate of these tropic isles, have in their hearts the Same maternal in stincts as the women of other races and other, climes, alike with the lioness or tigress. In fanticide amongst the Uawaiians was more the reeult of fear than of other causes. Abor tion and infanticide are crimes so unnatural and so opposed to the feelings of a simple and kind-hearted 'people' like the Uawaiians, that, the fear of the law removed, it is not a matter for surprise that to-day they are rare, and are confined rather to the rich and the outwardly respectable. It is quite probable that the crimes of infanticide in almost any populous city of enlightened and Cbristainized Europe or America ' j - i j . i exceed; in number during a single Tear, tbe number of illegitimate births that happen oq tlipRA I(l&ndfl- Y We are far from desiring to apologize for illegitimacy ; but rather that, vrc Bay, than in fanticide, which means bo many women made mothers vrho fall so below humanity that a blush of shame (if euch ia left) must suffuse their cheeks to look in the eyes of the lowest animal suckling its young. Wo to a nation when its women fall so low. We hare deemed tbe present an opportune moment to introduce this subject, when the new and praiseworthy societies for hoola lahui pre servation' of the people are initiating their measures. And further, to make an appeal in the cause of humanity to those whose gentle hearts are ever open to appeals on behalf of the unhappy and unfortunate; and who, let us ask, are more unfortunate than those little waifs of humanity whom a bard fate has thrown upon the world a hard world, at the best. We appeal on behalf of these unfortunate little waifs of Hawaii nei, to the generous-hearted Christian ladies of the land ; to those mothers, around whoso knees the happy faces of their own little ones nestled so cosily but recently on tbe festal ere of Christmas we ask these to take into their kind consideration the fate of these little unfor tunates. We suggest no plan ; we advise no course to pursue ; we leave the fate of the father less ones for whom we plead in the hands of those wish to earn the blessing of Him who fent about doing good, and who said 44 Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy." The agent of the . Board of Health and tbe Deputy Marshal, on account of tbe nature of their official duties, are both in a position to give information on tbe subject under discussion, to inquirers who may be charitably disposed. There is room here for a good work in saving hundreds perhaps thousands of lives of those who may thus grow up to become useful members of society. . . New Govebsor. HVe note with pleasure the appointment of Mr. John Tvlward Bash, late a clerk ia the Department of tbe Interior, to be Governor of tbe Island of Kanai. Mr. Bash is a Hawaiian of foreign extraction, whose industry, respectability aud probity of character does honor to tbe class to which he belongs; and in selecting him for promo tion His Majesty has done a good deed.

Editok : Tie late heavy rains hive I hcpe sufficiently demonstrated to cur new, and let us hope, efficient road supervisor the necessity to pay sotne attention to the iicwa'ks, and to the crossings of the streets. A f'.'w flat coral stones laid down at the crossings woa'J permit foot passengers to cross from one stree t to another dryihod, and there can be no doubt that tbe roal supervisor has sufficient re sources to make the sidewalks passable, even daring the most rainy days. As it is. traveling; through the mai is very annoying especially to ladies. Respectfully yours, Kaxaai.ta. Mb, Eorroa : Permit me a small space to call yoor attention to a very bad and not less dangeroas prac tice prevailing ia the city cf Honolulu, which ought to be abated. I do cot knew if ia the absence cf a municipal government any body exists that has power to enact any laws in regard to safety cf life and limbs, but perhaps the Marshal, or the Privy Council, cr the Minister cf the Interior, who issues all licenses, may have such power. 1 refer to the practice cf express wagons and carriages traversing the streets cf Honolulu daring the absence cf moon light and on very dark nights, especially on late ar rivals of the Kihvea, at a rapid rate. Tbe softness of the road material very often makes tbe approach of a carriage inaudible till the horse's bead is near your shoulders. Carriage drivers should be com pelled to have lanterns on their carriages cn a dark night Ptbuc. FLORENCE SEWING MACHINES ! jrsr Received per ss.
