SAT CUD A Y, JAXl'AHY 3. Letters have lecn receive! at the Foreign Office from the II u. Mr. Carter, our Enroy to the United States at:d Europe. In comr'anj with the Hawaiian Minister Heident. Judge Allen. Mr. Carter had visited Iio6ton and Vahington. At the former citj they found that there were man j fal-e ideas prevalent regarding the Reci procitT Treatj and its operation, and that it" enemies were active. Several days were fpeot in influential quarters in the work of correcting er- rjneou tiews as tu l:IanJ aSairs, and it was be l.eved that any organized oprition to tle Treaty such as had hen contcuiplated was thus J re- Tented. Mr. Carter alto Tifited Washington arid had interviews with the I'remdent and oieuihersoi hid Cabinet, e?icially with Mr. Sherman and Ab ietant Swrctarj French, who have been reported aa very hostile to the Treaty. Mr. French went into the subject quite thoroughly, and though it is thought that be has; teen led to view the matter ui favutahly than before, he waa not convinced that the Treaty waa commercially a desirable one fur the United States. He raid, however, tlrnt lie recognized the importance of friendly relations with the Hawaiian Islands', and eliould therefore oppose any attempt to do us an injustice. Mr. Sherman said emp hatically that he should wish to see the Treaty faithfully observed, though it was, in hie opinion, unfavorable to the United States commercially. He said, however, that when the time came to consider th termination of the Treaty, he should favor conferring with the Ha waiian Government in regard to the points which he thought unfavorable. As a rexult of Mr. Carter's interviews with leading men in the Government at Washington, it is to be expected that they will be impressed with the fact that reports of their unfriendliness to the Treaty are a positive injury to the Inlands, as tending to keep back i." .cstments and creating a feeling of uncertainty ; and that they will be induced, should any attack be made upon the Treaty in Congress, to defend its integrity, so that there shall be no doubt of the good intention of the Executive in the matter. Mr. Carter sailed Irom New York for Europe on the 3d of December. Ocr zsteeved coteniporary the Friend, devotes considerably space in its current number to the ' Domestic Chinese Question," meaning thereby the Chinese in Hawaii nei, and quotes from a letter by tbe Hon. Mr. Whitney, formerly editor of the Advertiser and subsequently of the Ga zette, but now a sugar planter on tbe Island of Hawaii. Mr. Whitney says he gathers from the words of the editor of the Friend, as contained in bis recent Thanksgiving sermon, that be is in favor of unrestricted Chinese immigration into Hawaii nei, which Mr. Whitney Bays be himself formerly favored ; but bis present view is that if we must have Chinese, let their numbers be restricted to those who are willing to bring their families, their wivee and children, to remain and become permanent settlers among as What has led Mr. Whitney to change his views as to the desirability of Chinese male immigration, is bia personal observation, since be removed from the city and became a resident of a remote dis trict, of their the CbineecJ corrupting influ ence on the native female population." And herein the one fearful fact is stated briefly which is either unknown or ignored by those who have advocated or excused tbe unrestricted immigra tion of Chinese. As has repeatedly been de clared in these columns, the future introduction of Chinese into these Islands at tbe rate at which they have come in the past, and unaccompanied by females, means nothing more nor less than tbe rapid extinction of tbe Hawaiian people. In regard to the inference drawn by Mr. Whit ... , - r . 1 xy T r JL. vv 1 rota me reaainz m mo , . xnuiou ThaD.-to.iAig discourse that the latter gentleman advocated unrestricted Chinese immigration," in the present issue of the Friend such a conclu sion is repudiated, and the editor says, " We hardly think the reader would be justified in drawing the inference from that discourse, or any other writings of ours.'.' " So far is this from being true, that privately and publicly we have urged the point, that not only Chinese immigrants should bring their wives, but also immigrants from Europe and America." We cheerfully credit our respected friend with this dkstvowel of views which we had certainly sup posed be entertained, and also, like our other friend, the quondam editor, after reading that portion of the Tliankegiving discourse which treats of the Chinese, and their unquestionable right to co wherever they may choose. Nothing was said in that discourse about their taking their wives with them. That immigrants from Europe and America are more likely to bring wives with them than Chincso, is too well known to be denied. We also cheerfully credit the Friend with hav ing suggested in July last that the time bad About come for the Hawaiian Government to take decided action about tbe introduction of so many Chinese immigrants, unaecompinicd by their wives. Would it not be well to convene the leading and prominent Chinese merchants of Honolulu, and let the subject be fairly discutcd ? Does not the magnitude of tbe subject demand the appointment of a Minister Plenipotentiary who shall visit China and confer with tho au thorities? If the Hawaiian Government sup ports a Minister at Washington, ought it not also to support a Minister or Consul-Goneral at Pekir Hawaiian affairs are as deeply involved in what passes in China as what passes in America. Tbe California watchword may be, The Chinese must go, but that of Hawaii is, The Chinese must come,' to work our cano and rice fielda..Now let us treat them fairly, and doall in our power to 'introduce' CTTincso families and diffuse among them Christianity." But it may well be doubted if a Hawaiian Min ister Plenipotentiary in China would succeed in getting the women to emigrate in anything like the same numbers as the men. It is something tantamount to losing caste for a Chinese woman to leave China, and generally speaking, none but the lowest classes will do so. But we must em phatically disagree with the statement that we in Hawaii are " as deeply interested in what passes in China, as what passes in America," or that any more Chinese must como here. -We have quite enough of them now and we shall look, in the future, to South Sea Islanders to work our cane and rice fields. In the meantime we hearti ly bid God speed to all efforts that may be made for the Christianizing of the" heathen Chinese that we already have among us, to the number or some 12,000; though with the Rev. Mr. Uap per, who writes from China to the Friend, we think the danger is that they will pagaaixe our own people. And the same evidently well-informed writer frankly says, There is a want of integrity even amongst Chinese Christians which you will have to guard against." The doctrine that all man have a God-given right to invade peaceably, let us sajr any country tbey may choose, and therein take up their abode without tbe consent of tbe original occupants, is one that will not stand tbe test of a fair discussion. A man's bouse is bis castle, says tbe time-honored English proverb; why ebould not his native land, inherited from his ancestors, be equally sacred? Japan and China undoubtedly had tbe right learned theorists to the contrary notwithstanding to endeavor to keer forci-nn out of their respective countries ; . e " 1 n , but iuiht made right, and they were coiBpeuea tj admit them. To-day, the Australians, to eave j therufielves from beinjr flooded with Mongolians, ! impose a tax on each immigrant from China which amounts almost to a prohibition vious to tbe imposition of that tax tbey were ar riving in Oueensland at the rate of seven thou sand a year ; eince that tbe cumber baa fallen to about two hundred in the same period. Some such measure will be a neceseity here, in eelf- jrotection. The New Palace. Wednesday bet, December Slat (the birthday cf . w 1 TT Qoeeo Kpio!ani) having been selected cy 111s Majesty cn which to lay the corner-stone of the new Palace of Iolani, the ceremonies were performed by the OrJer cf Free Masons in the impressive man ner prescribed by tbe ritaml of the ancient craft. Military d ! civic bodies took part in tbe procession. The Representatives cf foreign powers, ofScers of the U. S. war ships in port, Government ofnciaJs, and a large concourse of ladies, assembled under tbe spa cious tent which was erected for the occasion. Ia tbe centre of tbe raised platform were Their Majes ties tbe King and Queen ; their Royal Highnesses tbe Princesses Liliuckalafi and Likelike ; Her High ness R. Keelikolanl, and ladies of the Court. Uia Majesty and His Ex. Governor Domiois wore tbe insignia of the 33d degree of Masonry. The Palace grounds were filled with spectators, and the native population were out in large numbers, bent on mak ing a holiday. The procession, which made a very imposing display, was under tbe direction of tbe Grand Marshal, Hon. W. C. Parke, and formed on King street in tbe following order : Band ; " Poola" Society ; HuiOpiopio ; Knights of Jerusalem ; Red Men ; Knights of Pythias ; Honolulu Fire Depart ment ; Order of Oddfellows ; Mason io Fraternity, tbe whole escorted by tbe Prince's Own volunteer military company, 73 rank and file ; the Household Troops, numbering 29 ; and a detachment of ma rines and seamen from the U. S. S. Lackawanna and Ranger, 115 men. The procession, which was one of the largest seen in Honolulu for some years, moved at 11:30, and entered the Palace grounds at a few minutes before 12. Ample accommodations bad been provided for comfortably seating the largo audience, and the ceremonies were commenced by tbe Acting Grand Maater. The following were the Acting Grand Officers: P.-. M. David Dayton, Grand Master ; P.-. M. Wm. B. Wright, Deputy Grand Master ; P.. M. W. F. Allen, Senior Grand Warden ; P.. M. C. 8. Bartow, Junior Grand Warden ; P.. M.'. John A. Hassinger, Grand Treas urer ; P.-. M,. D. K. Fyfe, Grand Secretary ; P.-. M. L. Way, Grand Architect ; W.-. M.-. Alex. Mack intosh, Grand Chaplain. Silence having been commanded by the Grand Master, His Excellency S. G. Wilder, Minister of the Interior, addressing the former, said : " By command of His Majesty, and as Minister of the Interior of the Hawaiian Kingdom, having charge of the erection of this structure, I have the honor to request, Most Worshipful Grand Master, that you and your brother Masons will in a work manlike manner, with all the proper ceremonies of tbe Masonio Order, proceed to lay the corner-stone of this new Palace." Tbe Grand Master replied : " Your Excellency : On behalf of the craftsmen here assembled I thank you, and through you His Majesty our brother, for tbe invitation so courteous ly conveyed. We accept with pleasure the very pleasant task imposed upon us, happy that in tbe inaugural of so important a structure aa the future home of our beloved Sovereign, we may have oppor tunity to exemplify by operative labor the beautiful teachings of speculative Masonry." An eloquent prayer was then offered by the Lord Bishop of Honolulu, followed by an address prepared by Chief Justice Harris for tbe occasion, but in bis absence delivered by His Honor Associate Justice McCulIy. We have not received- n copy of Judge Harris address, but we publish in the Supplement with to-day's papers translation of that of His Ex cellency J. M- Kapena, which, delivered in Ha waiian, treats mostly of tbe same topics with the former. After musio by the Band and singing by tbe Royal School Choir of the Masonio Ode com mercing, .

Thereupon, while a strain of solemn music was played by tbe Band, tbe stone was lowered into its place by P.-. M. A. McDuff. The Grand Architect then presented the working tools the square, the level and tbe plumb to the Grand Master, who ap plied them to the stone, and declared that he found it to be woll-formed, true and trusty, and correctly laid, according to the rules of the ancient craft. Tbe elements of consecration were then presented, tbe wine by the Deputy Grand Master ; tbe corn by the Senior Grand Warden ; and tbe oil by the Junior Grand Warden, and duly poured upon the stone, whereupon the Grand Master made tbe following in vocation : " May tbe all-bountcoas Author of nature bless tbe inhabitants of this place with an abundance of tbe necessaries, oonveniencies and comforts of life ; assist in the erection and completion of thisbuildtBg; protect tbe workmen against every accident ; long preserve the structure from decay ; and grant to ua all a supply of tbe corn of nourishment, the wine of refreshment, and the oil of joy : Amen." Re sponse by the Brethren " So mote it be." Ilia Majesty then descended to tbe plaform, and taking tbe gavel, gave three strokes upon tbe stone, tbe brethren giving tbe grand public honors. Then followed tbe Masonio Ode by the choir Let there be light " the Almighty spoke." Tbe Grand Secretary, P.-. M.-. D. K. Fyfe, then addressed tbe assembly as follows : Men and brethren here assembled, be it known unto you, that we be lawful Masons, true and faithful to the laws of our country, and engaged, by solemn obligations, to erect magnificent buildings, and to fear God. the Great Architect of the Universe. We hsve among us, concealed from tbe eyes of all men, secrets which cannot be divulged, and which have never been found out ; but these secrets are lawful and honorable, and not repugnant to the laws of God or man. They were intrusted, in peace and honor. to the Masons of ancient times, and having been faithfully transmitted to us, it is our duty to convey them unimpaired to tbe latest posterity. Unless our craft were good nod our calling honorable, we ebould not have lasted for so many centuries, nor should we have been honored with tbe patronage of so many illustrious men in all ages, who have ever shown tbtmtelves ready to promote our interests and defend us from all adversaries. We are assembled tere to day in tbe face of you all to lay tbe corner-stone of a new palaoe, which we pray God may deserve to pros per, by becoming a place of conconrse for good men, whose earnest duty it should be to promote tbe peace and prosperity of this Kingdom, till time shall be no more." The following address was then delivered by P.. M.. the Hon. A. Fornander : YocbMajkstt, Ms. W.-. Gr. Master, Gr. Offi cers and Brethren of the Masonic Fraternity Ladies and GeniUtnen : Having had the honor of being selected from . . t . 1 WW i uui uuuuiuga .luiuicratuiumu uuomw on Accepted Masons is an old-time custom in Ecg land and America, and if cot without its prece dents even in thia country. If, then, the ceremony which you have juet witnessed, and which you have praced with your presence and attentfon, does not touch you as a novelty, it may poeBibly suggest thoughts and inquiries about tbe princi ples and foundations ot an Order which is so prominently honored in the aforesaid countries as to be almost always selected, on occasions like thif , to lay the corner-stone with its own pecu liarly impressive ceremonies. The association of persons for tbe purpose of mutual relief and of mutual improvement, for the cultivation of the moral and social virtues, for the discovery and expansion of Truth religious and scientific appears to have been a common char acteristic or mankind in all agea and under all stages of civilization ; the pages of history are abundantly dotted with the records of such asso ciations. They had their own peculiar modes of admission, their own peculiar modes of pursuing their objects. Some worked in open day, under flying banners and with the sound of trumpets ; others worked in secret, either forestalling or re membering the admonition of the Divine Master, " Let thine alms be in secret, and thy Father which secth in secret shall reward thee openly." Among these associations and institutions of the past, Free-masonry has a grand and an honorable record. Without going back to the Deluge, the Egyptian Pyramids, the Eleusinian Mysteries or the College of Architects in Rome, Free-masonry, as we know it and understand it, has a venerable antiquity to repose its foundations upon, and ol right takes the precedence among similar insti tutions, whoee objects are Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth. Olten misunderstood, sometimes persecuted in various countries, yet it has always emerged from under the cloud with greater lustre, and known how to vindicate its fair name from the aspersions thrown upon it ; so that in our days, wherever Liberty flourishes, there Free-masonry is not only tolerated but honored and sought after by men of all ranks and all callings, from the Imperial occupants of European thrones to the free-born eons of the quondam Polynesian savages. You may pertinently ask, whence cometh this remarkable vitality amidst tbe ever-changing cycles of time? It is neither owing to unex pected favors from without, nor to successful in trigues from within tho Brotherhood. Free masonry does not indulge in visionary schemes for the amelioration and regeneration of mankind, nor does it affect revolutionary methods for the realization of those schemes. Its vitality and its success are owing to the bappy equipoise of its principles with its practice. It is Conservative in all essentials ; it is Tolerant and Liberal in non-cesentials. These essentials, without which no man can legally become a Free Mason, or with any pro priety remain such, are Faith, Hope and Charity. Faith in God, Hope of Immortality, and Charity to all mankind. Wo believe in God, one God, the Great Archi tect of the Universe, to whom we are responsible for our actions, and without whose Grace no en terprise can permanently prosper. That faith is imperative before one can become a Free Mason. Ab our III.. Bro. Mackey expresses it, " We must first know and feel the universal Fatherhood of God before we can rishtlv arnreciato the uni versal Brotherhood of Man." But while we are believers, we are not thoolcgiane ; and we do not, as Masons, encumber our belief with the dicta or dogmas of councils or creeds. To each brother 13 lclt full and unquestioned liberty to think of the God whom we all believe in, and to worship Dim, according as his reason and conscience may prompt him. With a faith so simple yet so grand, and with a liberty so perfect, there can be no room for heresy or discord to disturb or sub vert our organization. The Hope of Immortality is another essential of Free-masonry, and indissolubly linked with the former. Without it the man dies as the beast dieth, and virtue has no stimulus and vice has no fear. The soal that sees no light beyond. the grave ; whose sunset knows no sunrise ot the morrow ; whose preecnt is the all in all, and who knows not hope or dares not hope that soul had better not been born ; wbate'er his lot in life might been he never could have been a Mason. A faith in God would be a barren faith without the hope of immortality, and life would be a waste of time, the grave a scene of desolation. How many a man has not deluded himself with the idea that death squares his ac counts on earth, and that, if there he a life here after, it will open for him untrammeled by the precedents of this ; thus foolishly ignoring the . m r- a VI V I - a I existence ot a uoa ana recsieseiy Draving toe conBcouences of bis own acts during this life.-. We sincerely pity such men for their blindness am foiIvYhut uch. are ?,UhejtufLJof -wT.'iVh'Fr'ee Masons are made. lth ub the hope of immor tality is a firm conviction or the soul and not a barely possible contingency. It quickens the eense of our rer.ponsibility to God and to our neighbor in times of prosperity, and consoles us in adversity. When enemies assail us, when for tune forsakes us, when our best laid plana mis carry, when our virtues are ignored and our fail ings exaggerated, when those whom we loved with our heart's holiest love wife, children and friends drop off in death and leave us a withered tree in a desert land, what then sustains us in the storm of life ? What makes us, courageously, rather " bear the ills we know, than (cowardly) fly to those wo wot not of"? It is this hope of immortality ; this perfect trust in Him who gave as well as took away our earthly blessings ; and the consciousness that in another life a firm but merciful hand will hold the balanco in which our merits and demerits will be weighed ; and that there, beyond tho curtain of the grave, the loved and lost will greet our coming. This hope of immortality is probably as old as the human race. It has manifested itself under various forms in all known nations of the earth. More or less clearly conceived of, more or less logi cally reasoned out, it was either a smouldering ember on ruined hearths, or a bright flame in happier homes ; but it was always there. Throughout what we call the ancient, classical, pagan times, many a brave and loving heart found consolation and hope in the sentiment which Horace, tho poet, so finely expressed in saying, non omnis moriar. (I shall not wholly die.) Chastened and purified by ages, that hope has descended to us, and has become one of the es sentials of our Institution, You may be an em peror or you may be a beggar, but without this hope you can not be a Free and Accepted Mason. Such is the Free Mason's Faith and such is his Hope or Immortality ; but these alone would be but empty words and an arrant delusion without the third essential Charity. Charity is tho last, but the greatest. It illus trates a Free Mason's faith, and it hallows hifl hope of immortality. The true Free Mason is ever duly sensible of his own short-comings and his need of charity and forbearance from others. He daily invokes the charity and forgiveness of the God in whom he trusts, and knows full well . I that only as he shows mercy and charity to others, T will mercy and charity be shown to him. Let us for a moment reflect on what that chanty is which is inculcated in our Lodges, and which it is our dutyeto practice out of them. No mortal man hos in more terse and comprehensive terms expressed what charity ia than the great Apostle when be said : " Charity euffereth long and is kind ; charity cnvieth not ; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinkcth no evil; " Rcjoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth ; " Bearetfc all things, believeth all things, bop cth all things, endureth all things. Charity never faileth." Charity is, then, not merely tbe giving to the poor from out of our own abundance, but also that disposition of mind which enables us to for bear and forgive, as we hope to be forgiven. It comprises something more than mere dollars and cents ; it comprises that forbearance, sympathy, time, attention and kindliness of heart which alone give the charity dollar its value, and withT out which it would be but an ounce of metal nj nothing more. Let us, therefore, never Jjrget that an open hand is not the 6ole criterijn ot a Mason's charity. It is good, it is necessrTi jt j3 obligatory, but it is not all ; and I lesve to each and all of you to consider how inexpressibly sad would be the fate of him, agaDe,J"wboeo name the Recording Angel would enr tbo remark : " He gave freely, but be never for,ave." Pecu niary charity wordly assistinceJlia n0 doubt peremptorily recommended ij, our Lodges, and during 27 years acquaintance with tho Order I have never known it to mJ e defauit : but spir itual charity that charft whicb tbinketh no evil, which speaketb which listenetb not to evil speaking from uher8 wbicb j9 not prone to anger, which has la rnt t0 BuDdue its passions and, in passing Judging OQ otherB, ia ever mind ful and merciful, is as ArncPtiy impressed on the mind of the tree Mason jnetir. These are among many oiner Dreiorcn 01 tee jianic trait, with better gifts and greater talent, to address u cu thia l a jour iDduj,eDCe ,or a lcvr jainutea. The 133103 the comer-etone of public and na- the two aspects under which charitv is considered ' by us, and the exercise of the one docs in no way ; excuee the absence of tbe other. " - j Such, briefly sketched, are tho principles and foundations under which and on which Free j Masonry has grown and flourished ; and, while j they remain acknowledged and honored by man kind. Free Masonry will continue t fl-mrisS un til time shall be no more. An organization that is founded in Faith, living in Hope, and practis ing Charity, is cot easily subverted while it proves true to itself. On you. Brethren, individ ually, and collectively as lodges, devolves the du ty of keeping Free Masonry in the Hawaiian Is lands pure and spotless. It is now well and fav orably known, and it is not for me, in thia place and before this audience, to enlarge upon tbe amount of good it has done. I leave that to others ; but this much I may be permitted to say and with just pride I say it, that no com munity could ever have shown a more kind and appreciative sense of our labors as Free Masons, than has this very city of Honolulu in which we are now assembled to lay the comer- tone of a new Palace for a King who is, himself, a Mason of great distinction in the Order. To him and to his exalted consort, Queen Kapiolani, whose birth-day has been selected to commemorate this occasion, to his beautiful city or Honolulu, and to this distinguished assembly, the Masonic Fraternity tender their sincere loyalty and best wishes. The Masonic Benediction waa then pronounced by the Grand Chaplain, Rev. Alex. Mackintosh, which closed tbe ceremonies. Then followed singing by the choir of tho Masonio OJe Hail, Masonry divine, Glory of ages, shine ; Long may'st thou reign r At the conclusion of Judge FornanJer's address, P.-. M. Jno. A. Hassioger advanced to the corner stone and addressed W.-. 11.: J. S. Lemon, of Le Progres Lodge, as follows : Worshipful Sir : By command of Bia Majesty, I have a pleasant duty to perform that of presenting upon this corner-stone, and in his name, to Lodge Le Progres de 1'Oceanie No. 124, of which you are Worshipful Master, these working tools of a Master Mason the plumb, level, square and trowel.. I feel assured that you will highly prize and sacredly guard in the archives of your Lodge, these beautiful jewels. To you they will be valued by a three-fold tie. liirst, that tbey are the principal working tools of an operative Mason, and as symbols, to speculative Masons tbey illustrate some of the most beautiful lessons of our Order. Secondly, they have been nsed to-day, both operatively and theoretically, in the cer emonies of laying this corner-stone. And, thirdly, they are to you the token of sincere aloha from your Brother, your Patron and your Sovereign. W.'.M.'. Lemon appropriately responded as follows: Past Master Hassinger Dear Sir and Brother : On behalf of Lodge Le Progres de 1'Oceanie No. 124. over which I have the honor to preside aa Worshipful Master, I receive through you from His Majesty, our Royal brother, these working tools of a Master Mason, and as used on laying this corner-stona of tbe build ing for a new palace on the 81st day of Deo. 1879. You will allow me to return to His Majesty our heart-felt thanks for this valuable and noble gift to our Lodge, of which His Majesty is a member and Past Master ; and I would say for my Lodge that thia Royal gift shall be kept for their good purposes and aa a remembrance of our Royal brother. His Majesty Ealakaua, the giver of such a noble gift. These tools that trowel now lying before me, Is used by operative masons to lay the cement which unites the building Into one common mass of strength but we, as Free and Accepted Masons, make use of it for tbe noble purpose of laying tbe cement of brotherly love which unites us into one band to do good towards all mankind. And I hope that this trowel will lay the cement of love and duty from tbe hearts of all here assembled toward His Majesty, our brother ; that we may under the Supreme Architect of tbe Universe guard and protect His Majesty through a long and prosperous reign to enjoy the comforts of this building when completed, for tbe great good of the Hawaiian Kingdom, our island home. Again, my dear sir, I would say on behalf of Lodge Le Progres de 1'Oceanie No. 124, 1 must return to His Majesty our heart-felt thanks for so beautiful and honorable n gift, on this 31st of December, 1879. Tbe procession was then formed in reverse order, escorted by the militaVy, and marched through the principal streets, the escort returning tbe several civic bodies to their respective lodges by two o'clock m eJJSJ"?-1 theseithaTtae"1:ree" .w )D8, which with visiting brethren turned out over seventy members. The military made a fine appearance tbe native troops, under command of Major Galick, with their new uniforms, and tbe American marines with their soldierly bearing, while tbe sailors carried themselves in a manner that did credit to their training. Altogether the cere monies and tbo arrangements were carried out in a most satisfactory and impressive manner, and worthy of the occasion. Tbe new Palace, plans of which have been ex hibited to us by tbe architect, Mr. T. J. Baker, is to be of four stories, including the basement and obser vatory, and will be built of brick and iron, the builder being Mr. Thomas, in the oruate style known as the ' American composite." It will be 140 by 120 feet on tbe ground plan, surmounted by a tower in the centre, the height of which from the ground floor will be eighty feet, and there will also be a tower on each of tbe four corners. When finished, (probably during tbe coming summer) it will be in all respects by far the finest and most imposing building on the Islands, an honor and an ornament to our capital city, and a fitting abode for Royalty.

These immigraats have leased some 600 acres of Mr. Sprecklea' tract at El Maui, recent ly brought under irrigation. Says the S. F. Bulle tin: "Spreckles id to furnish Ike material neces sary for buildings, which tbe Colonists are to erect. Tbe lease provides tbut tbe rent shall be paid tn kind. Tbe first year the rent absorbs aboat one-balf of the product, but gradually diminishes to about one-tbird, tbe product of the cane diminishing Irom year to year. It is stipu lated that tbe old cane shall be replaced with new at tbe end of every five years. About two miles from the colony Mr. Spreckles bos a ciude sugar mill, and will convert the cane raised by the Colonists into crude sugar. He agrees, in addi tion, to transport tbe cane from tbe borders ol tbe estate to tbe mill, bo that the Colonists will be re quired to devote their time and attention only to cane culture. An average crop is represented to be five tons ol crude sugar to tbe acre, bringing from $140 to $189 per ton. After the manufac ture of tbe sugar there are One facilities for ship ping it, a landing having been constructed not far from tbe mill. Tbe cultivation ol sugar-cane ia similar to tbat of corn, and tbe colonists take with them tbe agricultural implements that thy have used in this State.
