Oca next-door neighbor in his last issue, in
dulgea in a sneer at the "interesting cannibals,"
whom the Hawaiian government's agent. Captain
Mist, has so expeditiously arranged at the Fijis to
have conveyed to this port in a vessel chartered for
that end, and sent in quest of them to several
Paoifio Islands where they are likely to be obtained
so that they may be expected to arrive here
shortly. The scheme of inporting time expired
South Sea Islanders iraa first started by the Adver
tiser tome months ago, when the planters
were crying out on all sides for plantation
hands, at the suggestion of a gentleman here
well informed on such matteas. Oar enter
prising Minister of the Interior lost no time in
sending off an efficient agent to the Fijis, via New
Zealand and Sydney, on this business and in a re
markably short time, the result is as we have stated
the South Sea Islanders, if procurable, will soon
be on their way to our shores.
It is singular that those Kingsmill Island women,
of whose involuntary travels we published a narra
tive in our last issue, were brought on, we are in
formed, to their native island, on board the vessel
which was ohartered at Sydney by Captain Mist, to
convey thence the South Sea Islanders to this port.
The treatment of those Sonth Sea Island women by
the whites may have effect in inducing other South
Sea Island women to emigrate amongst whites, and
possibly may have tome influence on our own para
mount question the introduction of women into
This leads us to say something more about the
Maori scheme." The Gazttte teems with attacks
upon the poor Maoris of New Zealand, accusing the
men of laziness and crying down the Maori race gen
erally. Now, it teems to as that what people want
ed most here were women, or married men with their
wives and families, at least, so we understood the
case, when it occurred to us to suggest that some
married Maoris with their wives and families might
be glad to come here. Without admitting that the
Maori men are lazier than numbers of whites, who
never do a day's work in all their life, we think
that the advantage of securing for these islands mar
ried men with their wives and children, some of the
latter young girls, might very well compensate for a
lack of extraordinary habits of industry on the part
of the father of the family. When we say this, we
by no means admit that the Christian, civilized, set
tled and married Maori men are cne wbit more lazy
than "A Ten Years' Resident," who attacks the
poor Maoris in the last GaxttU. He says himself
that he was glad to earn his living as a wheelwright
amongst the Maori Kingitea in the Waikato country.
Thus he gives the lie to his own slanders, without
seeing it, as bis own statement proves how far the
Maoris were advanced in industrial pursuits. His
talk about slaves Tourikarika is all ncntense
There are no slaves in any land under the British
flag. However, the quest;n is now to far advanced
that by the last mail we are authoritatively informed
that " there will be no trouble about getting married
Maoris with families to go to the Sandwich Islands."
They can be got from Whangarei and the Bay of Isl
ands districts. All these emigrants would be Chris
tians. So far advanced are the Maori people of the
Bay of Islands that they are going to publish a Maori
newspaper at Whangarei, which we hope to tee ere
long in this office. We think that it will be a very
happy and promising day for Hawaii nei, whereon a
batch of say fifty married couples of Maoris, with
their children, shall arrive at these fast becoming
desolate shores. In 1800 there were 50,000 native
aboriginals on the Island of Tasmania. Last year
we had occasion to chronicle the death of the last
aboriginal of Van Dieman'a Land, as that island was
first named. It is with the rising generation of Ha
waiian aboriginals that the attempt must be made to
regenerate the race by intermarriage with kindred
stocks. Otherwiee the fate of the Hawaiian race will
be similar to that of the Tasmanian aboriginals, in
all likelihood. The want of women here is becoming
daily more glaring. We have suggested places
where women may be got to emigrate to these well
nigh desolate shores. We have pointed to the Maoris
and the Guaraais, and we may indicate native races
of the East Indies, such as the Tagalese; bat it would
seem that any proposal to make up for the deficiency
of women in this country only calls forth the sneers
j of addle-pated writers and the false-speaking mouth
pieces of a certain class of low-bred whites who hate
the colored races, like this wheelright, who earned
his bread amongst the Maoris, and now comes for
ward as their detractor.
In coDclnsion, we think that this government will
have co difficulty in engaging the services of an effi
cient agent at Whangarei, who, if so commissioned,
will undertake to charter a vetse!, losd it with mar
ried Maoris, their wives and children, and despatch j
it for this port, as au addition to the interesting j
cannibals," already cn their way for the proposed i
inspection of the physiological oracle of the Hawaiian j

Tub last issusj of the native paper ITa Luhui Ha

On No, we Never Mention it" is the refrain
of a song we remembered in childhood. The words
oocur to us again just now in connection with the
subject of a certain Commission appointed by the
King something over a year ago, for the purpose
of doing something for the increase of the Hawaiian
people. The idea was certainly a good one, but
the means appointed appear to have been quite
inadequate and there is no known result. We say
this without intending in any way to reflect upon
the Honorable Commissioners who are they ?
Oahu Collkob. The present term of this insti

classes will be examined on Thursday and Friday.
On Friday afternoon there will be Rhetorical Ex

vation of the physical as well us the mental
powers, the boj9 have of late engaged with great
zest in the game of foot ball. At the clone ol the

exhibition of their skill in a friendly match game.
It is hoped that the patrons of the school and all
persons interested in the education of young peo

Death of Noted IIawaiiaxs. It devolves upon
us this week to note the decease ol two Hawaiians
who have been prominent in the history of their
race, each in his particular sphere J. W. Makale
na, at Honolulu, a well-known government sur
veyor, a member of the Privy Council of State,
one of the Commissioners of Rights of Way and
Water, &c ; and William P. Ragsdale, at the Leper
Settlement, Molokai, who bus been for several
years past the real governor of that settlement.
The Bourd of Health, indeed the Hawaiian gov
ernment, has sustained a severe loss In the de
mise of Ragsdale, who ably and conscientiously
governed the leper colony for several years past.
We had occasion to note this fact on our visit to
Kalawao some three years since. Who will sup
ply his place? is the anxious inquiry of all who
take an interest in these matters. Who among the
unfortunates there Las the ability, the industry,
the energy, the intelligence, and love of country
displayed by William P. Ragsdale?

ers beyond sea, we have given the title-page in
tie muin and the price, of this very useful and
valuable publication, whose yearly appearance i
now familiarly welcomed by the denizens of these
Islands, as one of our national institutions."
For the outlay of the comparatively trifiing Hum
of half a dollar, or u few cents more for transmis
sion by post, the purchaser of this Annual can
obtain the most complete and reliable information
of a most miscellaneous character concerning
thes? Islands. The enterprising statistician and
compiler of this indUpensible publication is en
titled to the support of the community. As re
gards the mechanical execution . our Hawaiian An
nual, with its ornamental Title-page, its twenty
pages of advertisements referring to the general
movement of business undertakings iu our mercan
tile community, and in fine, its fifty-six pages of letter-press,
condensing so large an amount of statisti
cal and general information, may be considered as a
very creditable specimen of this country, which
can compare favorably with that of any other
civilized nation Before concluding, we must not
omit to allude to a very interesting History and
Description o! Hawaiian Postage Stamps," the au
thorship of which belongs to the compiler himself
of the Annual, and which we think will be read
with lively interest, especially by that class of the
public in all countries, who devote their attention
and money to the purchase and collection of pos
tage stamps a new taste which has sprung up
since the day of Roland Hill. Tbe accompanying
fac-similes of several of our Hawaiian postage
stamps of various values and periods enhance
considerably the interest of Mr. Thrum's remarks
npon this subject.

The Latest News.
The Sydney Malt of Nov. 17. in a paragraph on
the breakage of the cable via India, has the follow
ing : "One of our latest cablegrams informed us
that the Russians hal completely invested Plevna,
that supplies to Osruau Pasha's army bad been
stopped, and that the garrison hid been reduced to
great extremity. The sniie message al?o informed
us of the resignation of the French Ministry an
event of no small importance, the sequel to which
is being looked for with cousiJcrable interest."
Cable Communication between Australia
and Europe Interrupted.
We extract the following paragraph from the
Sydney Even ing .Yeu t of .November loth. From
its tenor it would seem that the Australians find
themselves badly off for a duplicate cable, and our
hopes are accordingly raised with reference to Lord
Normanby't proposed undertaking :
" Much dissatisfaction is expressed at the fre
quently occurring lengthy interruptions in our
communications with Europe. It is now fifteen
days aiuce our Uul telegrams were despatch from
London, and during that time events of great impor
tance were occurring. Short occasional nterruptiona in
such great lengths of wire may be reasonably ex
pected, but their is no excuse for the series of breaks
that have of late rendered communication with the
rest of tbe world impossible. News has been ami
outdy expected day by day, and us often hns there
beeu a disappointment. Affairs in both France
and in Turkey had reached a climax, and the results
were held to be of universal importance. But we
have been shut out from hearing this important
news. And this mainly arises from the want of a
duplicate cable. These defects might have been
provided against some months ago, when the ques
tion was raised of a second line. But the itnprartioa.
bility of our public men stood in the way. Most
assuredly the Australian colonies have cause to
mourn the present disarranged condition of colonial
political affairs "

To the Editor of the Pacific Commercial Advetiittr:
Sir : Tbe communication signed " Cosmopoli
tan ". in your last issue is a gentlemanly produc
tion, and as ntch is worthy of correction. Th
writer doubtless states his views candidly, but the
tenor of bis article fhows binifelf to be one who
after all would not like to see a nation without a
Sabbath. His reasoning throughout w not ao
cepted generally even by the most liberal scholars
It will be sufficient to point out a specimen or two
of his wrong conclusions.
The writer confuses two things, the moral and
civil Sabbath law. The former was given to the
race, along with marriage In the beginning, and
as put in the tables of stone along with other
universally binding moral requirements. The lat
ter was the civil statute, according it is true, with
the moral law, but with apecific enactments and
penalties attached. Tbe fltst chapters of Genesis ure
doubtleM the oldest inspired traditions of the race
and were as familiar to Noah and Abruham as they
were to Moses, and there is where we find the in.
angulation of the moral Sabbath. The Hebrew
also shows (Gen. 4:3) that It was regarded iu the
sacrifices of Cain and Abel. " At the end of days,"
the only division of time then recorded, they
brought their sacrifices." It is Hippof-ed ulso that
the various mentions of seven days in the account
of Noab has a Sabbatical reference. Traces of a
seven days division of time ate found among other
ancient peoples. Tho children of Israel kept the
Sabbath be'ore they renched Sinai. And the men
tion of it is in hiicIi a way nn to imply that it al
ready existed and was not newly instituted. All
the other ten commandments rue rnoial and are
made yet more binding in Christ's sermon ou tbe
mount. Why khould riot the fourth be moinl n1o?
Cosmopolitan refers to tbe fiflh commandment lis
showing tbat the ten commandments were not
binding on otbeis than Jews, but Pant in writing
to the EpheBiau Chi iMijin quotes this vrry com
mand as binding on them, who weie Gentdes
Eph. 6:2 3.
The writer aays that thejewinb Sabbath was
not enjoined as a day of religions devotion at
all." Just the contrary is true. Both the morn
ing and evening saciifices weie doubled on that
day. And by law the shew bread was frerhly
baked and put in place of the old on that day.
Double and more of the religious Cres glowed on
that day. And individual offerings ei sanc
tioned on that iluy. The Savior himself in bis
time approved them. Jeeus himself also was ac
customed regularly to go into the f) uagogues on
the Sabbatt day and teach. He and the apostle
were observers of the Sabbath. II Chib.t modified
any technical manner of observing it. he did it on
tbe ground that he was Lord of the Sabbath.
And "this, with bis resurrection and pentecosl which
wrs on Sunday, and the immediate practice of all
the disciples of making the first day of the week a
Sabbath, and the sanctiun that Christ gave it by
bis appearing are tbe principle and all sufficient
sanctions for the transfer of sanctity to the first
day of tbe week. It was the Lord's day. reli
gioMaly observed in all the early church.
In view of the position of Cosmopolitan on this
question, it is surprising that he fails to catch the
spirit of the New Testament to such a degree, as to
ask " why did not Chri.-t or Paul give directions
for such a day?" Christ laid down principles
and corrected spiiitual abuses, but did not enact
specific " directions." He said " the Sabbath was
made tor inuo," for mankind, not for the Jew,
and not for tbe bondage but for the good of man.
It is hardly necessary to say that Cosmoplitan
quite fails to apprehend the gist of Paul's reason
ing. Tbe question of the weekly Sabbath or
Lord's day was not involved. It was not a sub
ject of doubt or controversy. He was referring to
special observances practiced as grounds of hal
vation. Let me add t,bat statistical science affirms tbat
the need of a day of testis grounded iu our na
tures. And social, moral and pollticul sclenco
equally affirms tha.atnoral or religious Subbstb
is necessary for the best welfare of the nation and
It is not the province of the civil government to
enact a religious Sabbath law, but the national
well-being demands a civil Sabbath law ; and Iu
a christian civilization, a civil Sabbath law, though
not enacted on religious grounds, will yet unavoid
ably, not be in antagonism to the chilslian fncred
no of the Lord's day. Ll S.
Tuthe Editor of the J'acUic Connnti cint Adfertiner
Sir: 1 clotcJ my communication in tbe lust week's
Advlbtislr with the words " here is a repudiation
of all church authority." I proceed: Christ and
Paul do homage to tbe human Intellect, and to
human conscience, sud both are allowed thwir liUr
ly, the cue to believe iu view of all the tvidencs be
fore the mind, and the other to do as it feels it ought
in the circumstances. In Chrltt and Paul there is
no brow-beating, and ytt churchmen, anJ govern
ments, and legislatures held in the lcabh by church
mru dare agaiust the rights of Individuals and Chris
tian liberty to impose creeds and obsolete laws by
fiucs and iuipiisonmcut.
Paul and the primitive church constantly were in
tent on making a clean cut between Judaism and
Christianity. Re gardcJ as a holy day, J udaistn gats
one day in seven, but Christianity gives seven Sab
baths iu the week, for bow every day is a Sabbath
no day too profane to do a truly religions act, aud
no day too holy to do a good one.
When in the fifteenth century a fresh morning
glory of learning aud truth shone upon the dark
night of superstition and priestcraft, all the reform
ers without a single exception, took the view of tho
Sabbath as taught, aud illustrated by Christ an 1
Tyndul, the reformer and martyr, sayt, " Ws be
lords of the Sabbath, and may change ll into Mon
day or any other day, an we tee need; or we maka
two every week if It were expedient, and one no
enough to teach the people. Neither was there any
cause to change from the Saturduy, except to put
didcrence between us aud the Jews, and lest we
should become rervauts unto tbe day after their
superstition. Neither need we any holy day at all,
if the people might be taught without it." Calvin
in his " institutes " tny$, " He (Christ) Is the ful
fillment of the Sabbath. This Is kept, not by one
day, but by the whole course of our life," do. And
more than that, let me tell you uucircumcised disci
ples of the law of Moses, that would so readily tako
a bond in stoning any one who picks up sticks on
Sunday or takes a drive, that Calvin after church
service, which be held at an early hour aud only one
service, would join tho people in playing at bowls,
and shooting, and other games of recreation and
amusement. Vet, even Calvin, the suttere reformer,
did thaw out, and sweetened up when the Sabbath
came, and, good lord, here in Honolulu in the nine
teenth century, people are liable to be si rested, fined
or imprisoned for going iu a boat cu the sea to
breathe the fresh and balmy air with which a kind
GoJ scents another day of human life ! Such is
Christianity on the Sandwich Islands !
Luther, the prince of reformers, says, "As regar ds
the Sabbtth or Sunday, there is no necessity of keep
ing it, but if we do, it ought to be, not on account of
Moses' commandment, but because nature teaches us
from time to time to take a day of test."
Melanothon styt, "There exist monstrous dispu.
tations teaching the chtDgo of the Sabbath, which
have sprung up from the false persuasion that a wor
ship like tbe Lcvitical was needful in the church.
They who think thtt by the authority of the ohurch
tbe observation of the Lotd's day was appointed, in
stead of the Sabbath, us if it was necessary, ore
Tbe learned Urotius, commenting ou the fourth
commandment, says, " Tbcte things refute those who
suppose that the first day of the week, that Is the
Lord's day, was substituted in place of tbe Sabbath;
for no mention is ever made of euch a thing, either
by Christ or the apostles," cto.
Milton, Neander, Barrow, Pa ley, Dr. Gil, Bishop
Warburton, Archbishop Whately, all those truly
learned men and true Christians, and disciples of
their Master, declare one sud the seme doctrine.
Honest old Butiysn, the author of Pilgrim's Progress
quaintly makes the remark, " Nor bath the apostle,
one would think, left any bole out at which men's
innovations could get; but man bis sought cot many,
anl so many will be use." Yea verily !
The Hawaiian Hat tilt in criticising my former
letter says " we have but little respect for this gen
tleman's logic end difler radically from some of bis
conclusions." In answer I would only say that 1
from the first bad not the least idea that Melauothou,
Urotius, Lather and all the above mentioned lighte
could be on a par in their logic- and conclusions with
the editor of the Hawaiian Gut tilt. The Fritnd
in the article " a higher law " so perfectly exempli
fies Bunysn's above cited remark of having found
" a hole out at which men's innovations could get
out, yea verily 1" tbe very watchword which the pro
fessedly bumble servants of a glorious Master have
from olden times ur-ed to improve their Master's
teaching and correct God's own doings. " A higher
law," just so, the very thing that, although the
New Testament and all the glorious old reformers,
are so very clear on tbe subject of the Sabbath,
nevertheless made the ohurch go so far astray. It
wm that tame " higher law," which now appears to
King Kalakaua and the authorities, and clipped off
the bead of King Charles iu England, in those dark
days when Puritanism was rampant, aud was intent
on erecting a new theocracy opon the ruins of Juda
ism in tbe fair realms of England. It was the
higher law " that in the love of the Old Testament
disregarded the teachings of Christ and Paul and
ihe grand old reformers. It was their tame " higher
law" that bad taken possession of the assembly of
divines, envoked by the Puritan Parliament, to settle
the religion of tbe realm, that produced in the con
fession of faith, in 1C18 at Westminister, Chapter 21,
section 7, the following great falsehood and unblush
ing lie against Christ and bis word : "As it Is of
the law of nature, tbat, in general, a due proportion
of time be set apart for tbe worship of Clod, so in Ills
Word, by a positive, moral and perpetual command
ment, bindibg all men in all ages, be has particu
larly appointed one day in seven for a Sabbath, to
be kept holy unto him ; which from the beginning
of tbe world to the resurrection of Christ, was
changed into the first day of the week, which ia
Scripture is called the Lord's day, and is to be con
tinued to the end of the world as the Christian Sab
bath." In the answer CO, in tbe shorter catocbisui
to the question " How is the Sabbath to be sancti
fied T" ititdclsre J " The Sabbath is to be sancti
fied by a boly retting all tbat day, even from such
worldly employments aud recreations as are lawful
on other days ; and rpendiog the whole time in tbe
public and private exercises of Cod-worship, exorpt
so much as is to be taken up la the works of necessity
And this bold heresy of the " sanctity of the Sab
bath " this great falsehood, wbloh unlike any other
beiey in the world, has not one syllable, not one
iota of evidence in the whole New Testament, Is
raked and ploughed into the children's souls by
church and school, while the church and school
know, if they do know anythiog of what thry ought
to know, that it it a falsehood. The Friend talke
about the " hoodlum element." Compel your chil
dren by whip, according to question tiO of the
" shorter catechism " to spend the whole Sunday in
public and private God-worhip, end bine out of ten
will in their afterlives avoid the church door and
become the very "hoodlum element" from which
a " higher law " would save them. By comraoa
consent tbe Christian Churches have chosen Sunday
as a day of worship and teaching of the people. Let
the Sunday remain for this purpose, but divest
it of all superstitious sanctity. The great good
hepherd calls bis sheep, but does not drive them
with whip into tbe fold, and wherever tbe eatl of
bis servants is sweet and lovely tbe sheep will freely
gather, and of course those who join In church servi
ces have the rights of citizens, be they tnsjority or
minority, to expect, and demand protection, as far
as the law can give it, against all interference, mo
lestation and disturbance by unseemly noises, while
at the same time, as loug as it docs not directly in
terfere with private or publio worship others have
the Inviolable right to seek their happiness in their
own wsy. Traffic, opening of storee and saloons, if
not with publia worship, would In many Instances
perhaps interfere with private worship and feelings.
Tbe Sunday is invaluable as a day of rest. Sunday
is a bulwark thrown up by tbe law to protect the
interests of labor against tbe greedy exertions of
capital and avarice, and Sunday, as long as no con
stitutional government Las any right to curtail the
freedom of individuals, ought to be respected as a
day of recreation or amusements as long as those do
not directly interfere with tbe religious devotions of
those " who regard the dsy unto tbe Lord."
