What the Election Mean.
Though there are no clearly defined par
ties ami the choice of the eopIe at the late
election may be said to indicate mainly
personal preferences, yet the views of the
people on certain questions may be said al
so to have afTected their votes in many in
stances. There has been commonly mani
fested at Hawaiian elections, a strong anti
ininisterial part3', bu! in this instance there
was but slight demonstration of any vspe-
i cial iti kuhiiut, or opposition to His Majes
ty's Ministers as a body. Hut there certain
ly was a good deal of adverse feeling towards
one minister. His Kx. H. A. P. Carter, now
abroad, and it was this adverse sentiment
that very heavily handicapped liia brother,
Mr. J. O. Carter, in soliciting the suffrages
of the people. Minister Carter has been
allowed a leading infiueuce in the manage-
; " ,
nieiit of the affairs of ( Jovemment, ami cer-
iH.rtions of his administration are
I Wy condemned. There has been a good
; deal of Complaint about his Slliall-MX mail-
, , . . - .......
! agemeiit, but the chief grievance, we .....
i derstaild, ill the liopular mind, is owing to
. ... , .. , , . 4 1 r I ..... I I.
the Wl thoIdlPg of fu lids I II tended for Ilea I til
purposes and app'y ing them to other ob
i Jts. The legislature of 1SS0 more' than
I doibI d the amount estimated hy ministers
ior me expenditures 01 me jwanioi 11ean.11,
aud iu addition, appropriates! 840,0K) for
liranch Hospitals. This fund was not ap
plied as intended, except a small portion at
a late dav. for amiarentlv noliticnl ohiects.
! . . - .. . 1
! Alld furthermore, Mr. Gibson, the fUOVef
riu 11 1 ijr iiii'iujii ..11. iyai 111 s iiiuuciivr
and was obliged to resign his seat at the
Board. These and other matters strongly
affected popular opinion, and we say advis
edly, that one significant meaning of the
lata ..l.li..n in t Inlinl 11 I 11 U'HS A POIll Ielll I1SI
'" " i ,,. . . , "
' till of the public policy Of Minister t arter,
... , e.t 1 . .1.
' Another meaning of the election through-
j out t j, . t.OUntrv, as indicated bj' a majont'
1 . . . .a ,
of the returned iiieinbers, is that the petiple
are favorably disMsel to consider the ques
tion of a loan for important public improve
ments mid aid to general enterprise.
And the election most unequivocally
ajiieaus a determination on the part of the
Hawaiian people tostaud by their independ
ence with the ballot in their hands and
to reject any iniiii who is supposed to
have a sympathy, or the remotest associa
tion with any one who has advocated or
syuiathized with annexation to a foreign
ower. The native Hawaiian w ho consti
tute nine-tenth of the voters of the King
dom, have a patriotic appreciation of their
nationality and will not consent t the sur
render of their autonomy under any circum
stance, and the result of the late election
is a pmof of this statement.
Oi'K lurxir system, which lias given occa
! s on to so iuti.:Ii animaii version against us
ahroa 1. will require earnest and thoughtful
attention at tin; hands of our legislators.
It must if dealt with in mo mo way or other
durino; the i-oinin session, and it is ear
nestly to be hoped that whatever may be
done will be ifone ertloiently. It U desir
able that a careful examination should be
made of systems which are being worked
elsewhere. It is impossible but that we
shall be able to learn something from such
an investigation if undertaken honestly,
and not uod?r the influence of foregone
conclusions. At the same time, it is neces
sary that the condition of things ia our
own -untry should have careful considera
tion. The sparseness of our population has
to be taken into account. We have here
no reserve of lab r upon which we can fall
back, aud we are therefore under the neces
sity of establishing restrictions which raay
not be neceary elsewhere. The law of
master and servant, as it exists in this
country, lias not tieen brought into its
present shape without much consideration,
and thoe who are resjxmsible for the form
in which we now find it made an honest
endeavor to do justice to both employer and
employed. The fact that among the nu
merous attacks that have been levelled
against the country, and especially against
our plantation owners and managers, of
late, scarcely any disparagiug reference has
been made to our statute law which con
trols the labor system, is proof in itself that
the law has been framed in moderation,
and that it is really the coutract system
and the personal conduct of individual em
ployers and their lunaa, against which a
cry has been raised. Now we cannot do
without the contract labor system, aud the
task before us is to render that system, as
administered here, acceptable to the class
of men whom we need its plantation
laborers. The measure which appears to
us most likely to quell the complaints
which have been put in circulation about
the treatment of our plantation hands is a
more active supervision on the part of the
Government of the condition of the laborer.
There stand in the way many hindrances.
It is a very difficult and delicate thing to
pry into the management of private con
cerns, lie who is charged with such a
mission must needs be a discreet and, at
the same time, a resolute man, one who
cau be trusted 10 allow no personal feeling
to warp his judgment either for or against
any employer. lie should be as Indepen
dent as it is possible for a human being to
be of all influences likely to warp his judg
ment, or to render him hasty in his way of
dealing with what he sees, or what is
brought before him in the way of com
plaint. To this end it is absolutely neces
sary that such an official be liberally paid,
and absolutely prohibited from following
any calling or profession. His services
should be given exclusively to the Govern
ment, and ought to be confined to the one
office of Inspector or Protector of contract
laborers. It will, undoubtedly, be a very
difficult thing for the Hawaiian Govern
ment to find such men, and an onerous
thing for the Hawaiian Treasury to pay
them adequately for their services. Yet it
may be doubted whether any other expen
diture for which a place will be found in
our .next Appropriation Bill will be as
truly and fully a reproductive investment
as this would be if agreed to by the Legis
lature. It may be doubted whether, at the
present moment, our position iu regard to
the future necessary supply of labor Is
really comprehended by the majority even
of those directly interested in the question.
We are sure it is not appreciated properly
by the general public. Our requirements
are continually growing, larger areas are
put under crop each year. We cannot get
on without a corresponding increase in the
number of laborers to cultivate and get in
the crops. Where are we to look for the
hands that will be needed even before this
time next year? How many newly-arrived
laborers did our employers absorb last
? Vrhat are even a thousand Portu
guese, if they be secured, to compare with
the numbers that came from all sources
in 1-Ss.l? Reflecting on what is before us
in this respect, everyone must confess that
whatever we c-tn do to make the country
more attractive to the coutract-laborer
ought to be promptly undertaken, and that
whatever it may cost will be nothing in
comparison with, the disastrous loss a short
supply of labor will entail.
All parties have observed and comment
ed upon the admirable order maintained by
the people during the election on Wednes
day the 1st insL Thero was an assemblage
during the day, In and around the grounds
of Aliiolani, of over three thousand people.
They were excited and demonstrative, but
perfectly good humored. "Not an angry al
tercation nor any act of violence took place
and not one drunkeu man was to be seen on
the ground. Could better or as much be
said of any European or American mass of
people assembled for such an object? It
was the opinion of many foreign observers
of the proceedings of our day of election,
that nothing like such good order and hu
mor could be, witnessed at an English or
American election, and it was said that
could the perfect report of the day's pro
ceedings be submitted for the consideration
of the enlightened men of the world, it
would awaken a universal opinion that
Hawaiiaus were qualified iu the most es
sential particular for the privilege of self
government. Of course in the late instance of election
some of the credit of the good order which
prevailed must be attributed to the unanim
ity of sentiment which prevailed. Had
there been any strength of parties and a
sharp contest between rival candidates more
altercation and acrimony might have been
awakened. As it was, one leading candi
date called forth the general suffrage with
out any show of opjaosition, and therefore
Mr. Gibson's widespread popularity must
be recognized as an influence contributing
tothe peace anil order of the day.
Or it neighlMir the Gazette, and one of his
kidney, a so called "Citizen and Thinker,"
say that "Honolulu is not represented." by
its representatives elect. Now, when a can.
tlidate ioIls l,l 3out of 1,4 1, or much more
than than three-fourths of the votes cast
if that is not a choice by a pretty respect
able majority, and the evidence of a full re
presentation, we want to know what they
call it. But they want to say that none of
their society or club or coterie voted for so
and so. Perhaps they did not ; and perhaps
none of the friends of a party who, on the
day of election at Aliiolani Hale, with a
list of forei f 11 voters in hand, sent off ex
presses to bring up laggards to the polls,
vot"d for a gentleman who, in tlieir opinion,
d n't " represent Honolulu-" But weknowf
on good evidence, that fully one-half, or
perhaps more of the f.ireign votes cast, re
presenting property and Influenoe, were
cast for this same geiitleinan, who holds an
important enterprise in the heart of the
city; aud who ruay be regarded as fairly
qualified to represent its business aud com
mercial enterprise ; but not its meanness or
its cant, or hypocrisy. A toady for social
recognition, may affect to ignore a man,
whom he does not meet, in some set. where
an appearance is the object of his ( the
toady's) especial ambition, and he will
hardly understand when the voice of the
people call a man to take a lead in the di
rection of public affairs.
On the day of election there were some
individuals of a profession and office that
usually commands the highest respect, that
were busy, not merely to promote the In
terests of a favorite, but to vilify au antag
onist. Their influence among natives,
much boasted of heretofore, was proven on
this occasion to be a nul.'ity by the bad
defeat of their candidate. Now, if they will
be content to acquiesce in the verdict of the
people against them and attend quietly to
their proper duties, peace will ensue ; but if
with continued discussion they see i to stir
up antagonisms they miy expect to be
handled very freely and fully. The people
have chosen await the action of their
A GREAT deal of thought is bestowed
upon, and much talk about the enactment
or amendment of laws; and nothing said
about the administration of law. In the
reform of police administration, there is
more to be done for the country's welfare
than In any new legislation. Could we be
assured of a perfectly wise and efficient ad
ministration of the laws we have, the Legis
lature of 1S82 need do little more than as
semble, pass a carefully considered appro
priation bill and adjourn. Of what use are
laws, that are become dead letters? Of
what use are prohibitory enactments in
respect to liquors, for instance, when
through laxity of administration, the peo
ple have an opportunity for more abuse
than if the sanction of law permitted the
use? And of what use are Sunday re
strictions, that may be violated with
Impunity by the well-to-do, and made a
burthen to the poor? There must be a
reform in executive work, otherwise legisla
tion is in vain. With a wise administration
a country could get along with stupid laws;
but with bad administration, the best of
laws would be of no avail. The task of ad
ministrative reform was taken in hand
during the sessions of 1S73 and '80 without
result ; it is to be hoped that it will have a
more successful issue in 1SS2.
"UlT would have been very desirable, had ;
two or three more foreigners of experience
been elected to assist in the work of the
legislature. The Finance, Foreign, Judi
ciary aud Education Committees need men :
0 especial qualifications and some ex- '
perience to assist In important work con
nected therewith. The real work of legisla
tion is done in committee and not in debate.
Therefore, the few In the Legislature of
1882, that are qualified for business details,
will have much on their shoulders, and
must address themselves to the task of pre- :
paration ; and endeavor by careful study
before hand and by wise organization dur
ing the session, to advance the business of
legislation. It may be said also, that the
return of certain foreign members, however
well-qualified, who represented mutual
antagonisms, rather than principles or
measures, might have served to retard
rather than advance the public busiuess.
We think that the composition of the Leg is- '
lature of 1882 promises well for a direct con
sideration of important public questions
and for a short session.
Birthday of Her Royal Highness Princess
Her Royal Highness Princess Ruth Keelikolani
celebrated, on Thursday last, her sixty-fourth
birthday by a luau, or banquet in native Hawaii
an fashion, given at H. R. H.'s new mansion in
Emma-street, followed on the evening of Friday
by a Reception and Ball. The occasion wa in
deed adopted for the "house-warming" the
handsome and beautifully decorated house being
only just ready for occupation. The event has
been long talked of, aud looked forward to, and
has been the chief'topio of conversation during
the past week, almost to the exclusion of all oth
ers, causing the exciting events of the previous
week to fall quite into the background.
The Mansion which wus the scene of these fes
tivities is situated on the land known as Kaako
pna, which has a long frontage to the Ewa side of
Emma-Ktreet. It is a handsome structure of two
main stories, on a hih basement with an attic
story and turret above. On the main floor on
the mauka side of the house, are two drawing
rooms which communicate with one another by a
wide arch. The dimensions f the larger room
are 48X ft. by 24 lt ft., and those of the smaller
?A ft, by 19J, ft. On the makai side of the
building are three rooms, two of which are bed
rooms, the other being apparently designed as a
boudoir. Between the bedrooms are two bath
rooms, fitted with every convenience of the latest
models. The rooms themselves are severally
Ult ft. by 21 ft., 2'4' ft. by 18,'; ft., aud 19 J, ft.
by 17 ft., and they are all 1G ft. in height. More
striking even than the dimensions of these noble
rooms, are their elaborate internal decorations.
A description of the ceilings with their moulded
centres and cornices, was published in the Pacific
Commercial ADVEffrisEB of 13th Nov., 1880, in
the following terms : ' One department of
the work has lately been completed. This
is the plastering, which, from the style of in
ternal finish adopted, assumes an important
place in the construction. The bnildinj is plas
tered internally throughout, and the piaster is
made the medium of orjiamentatiou of a very
elaborate character. In the hall, the keystones
of the arches which cross it, and the support
ing brackets at the sides attract notice at
once. The latter are of a strikingly handsome
pattern, the details of which are borrowed
from the capitals aud pediments of Doric ar- j
chitecture. On the wall line is a moulding of !
the egg and dart pattern, on the airop from j
the ceiling a ball ornament, and between them j
a wide ribbon of oak-leaves, while as a bor- j
der to the ceiling itself is a twining vine, j
These four lines of ornament make a happy com- j
bination, which is repeated throughout the low-
er floor. There are three elaborate centres in j
the hall, but those of the parlors throw the oth- j
ers into the shade, being 5 feet 8 inches in diam- :
eter. These are of handsome designs of scroll :
and arbesque work, with fruit pieces in the im-
mediate centers, the whole ceiling being panel- j
led iu plaster. The roof of the vestibule or inner ;
entrance porch is plastered iu imitation of a j
groined roof. In the bed-rooms and dining-room j
the ceilings are an elaborate as in the parlors.'' j
The dimensions of the vestibule are 10, feet by ,
13 feet, and those of the hall which runs through !
the whole of this portion of the building CO feet
by 13 feet. The ceilings have all been painted
in fresco by an Italian artist, whose work must
be prouounced to be admirable. In his choice
of colors for the various parts of the moulded
work, and of ground colors and jjesigns for the
flat portions of the ceilings he has been pecu
liarly hippy. A description of ths whole i f his
work would p.it.ve t- lengthy t j bo indulged in

M itt r.i. nt that it thoroughly siti-.ri.-a th" eve.
an t aeco'ds m-ist artistically wit'a th- r!...sj.ej, of
the plaster-w..rk which it decori.Us. At th:.
rear of the main building is anoth.-r ..J one i irv
divided from it by a wide verandah. Iu th.s .re
the dining-room, with the pautries behind it. and :
at the reitr the kitchen. Th dining-room, or ;
banqu-afcng hall as from its size and handsome ;
decoration we ought, perhaps, to call it is au !
apartment of feet by 24 feet, aud 14 feet in j
height. What we have said about the fresco work j
of the other rooms may be repeated i:i reg.ird to !
this on'. with the additional commentary that !
this the tirst effort of the amst is also' to our !
miud-. "he most successful ooe. The upper part '
of the maiu building eoutains only two lo u.us
intended to be utilized, and only extends over
the lesser drawing-room and the front bedroom of
the lower story. The rooms are nearly the same
size as those below them, and are handsomely,
though plainly, finished in plaster work. The
rooms on the attic floor and the turret ave
finished in wood, and r-j.ice in splendid view.
In front of thi house is u wide and handsome
verandah, with a covered baleouy over the cen
tral portion of it. The verandah is approached
by a flight of sreps suited in width and design to
the character aud proportions of the house to "
which they form the maiu entrance. Ou either
side and at the rear there are continuous veran
dahs 10 It. vide, which. do not, however, communi
cate with that in the front of the building. Thesa
terminate ou either side towards the front in
handsome staircases in the form of a ipaadrant.
The vei'auilah at the rear divides, as already
stated, the maiu building from the dining-room,
kitchen, fcc. That portion of the building which
contaius these apartments is only of half the
width of the front part of the house, and the
verandahs are continued on either side of it.
Tho dining-room is behind that part of the house
which contains the bedrooms, Thus the draw-ing-r.ioms
ure surrounded by the verandahs, into
which their shallow bay windows project an
arrangement which is repeated ou the makai side
of the house. When thrown opeu, as they were
ou Friday night, for Her Royal Highness' ball,
the drawing-rooms, the hail, tho boudoir and
one of the bedrooms form one large bull-room,
the communications between them being by
arched doorways 8 feet wide, the doors of which
slide away oiit of sight into the walls. The
detail of finish throughout the house is very
perfect. Each window is fitted internally with
folding Venetian shutteis. The bathrooms have
already been spokeu of. The pantry and store
room are models of what such .places should be,
and must be the envy of every good housewife
who is privileged to inspect them. The whole
structure reflects great credit upon the architect,
and upon Mr. Hardee, who had the superinten
dence of all the details.
The house is lighted throughout with patent
air gas from one of the Springfield machines of
the size known as a seventy-five burner machine,
but said to be capable of supplying one hundred
aud twenty-five burners. There are seventy-three
argand burners in the house. When these were
all lighted together .for the purpose of testing
the efficiency of the supply and the general ef
fect of the arrangement of the lights our reporter
was present and can vouch for the brilliancy of
the illumination and the remarkably steady char
acter of the light. The gasoliers in the drawing
rooms are of pure bronze and of very artistic de
sign, having six lights in each. There are two
of these in the larger room and one in the
smaller, and they are sufficient to flood the
rooms with light. In the dining room there are
two six-light gasoliers and in each bedroom one
of three lights. When all these lights are burning
together as on the occasion referred to, and on
Friday night, the effect is very fine.
Such is the mansion which Her Royal
Highuess handseled with her birthday party.
Large as it is, however, it would have been im
possible to find even standing room in it for half
the guests iuvited ou that occasion. To accom
modate the company which, witii an open-handed
hospitality becoming to hi r rank as a Hawaiian
High Chiefess, Her Royul Highness entertained,
a marquee had been erected on the makai side
of the house, more tii.ui one hundred aud fifty
feet long aud sixty ieet wide. This was hand
somely decii'ate t internally with ihr fronds of
the cocoa palm, maile, ferns, etc., and at the
ends and along part of the front of the tent walls
of the cocoa fronds hie I be-u artistically con
structed. When filled with au animated crowd
of both sexes, this great enclosure presented a
very striking appearance. Tables, in Hawaiian
style, raised about it foot from the ground were
set out in the tent, four of about one hundred aud
twenty feet each iu length, with a cross table at
the head, fifty feet long, reserved for the hostess
and guests of distinction. These tables were
supplied with the favorite staples of a Hawaiian
meal in great profusion. The fashion of the
huole had been so far followed that there was a
plate for each guest, and that the fish and various
minor delicacies of the feast were served on
earthenware dishes. But this defereuce to for
eign fashion went no further ; knives, forks,
and spoons were not in the programme and
it was amusing to watch the perplexed faces
aud bungling manoeuvres of some of the guests
who were present at a Hawaiian luau for the first
time, and seemed to be mentally resolving that
it would also be the last. Beside each plate
stood a ration of cooked meat tied up iir li leaves,
just as it had come from the oven, and weighing
at least three pounds ; evidently no one was to
starve at Her Royal Highness' table. Then
there was fish iu plenty, but for the most part in
an uncooked state ; poi too in abundance ; and
dishes of a curious looking compound of kalo
and cocoanut, evidently greatly relished by Hi
waiians aud pronouueed to be delicious by
htio'e who were adventurous enough to taste it.
Shrimps, timu or sea-weed, and a pounded pre
paration of kukui, or candle-nut, &c, were there
iu profusion indeed when some four hundred
guests had lunched from these tables they
seemed still to be as profusely covered with the j
good things of Hawaiian life as ever, the cooked
fish being the only thing into the stores of which
any serious inroad had been made. This dis
cription serves for the long tables which ran the
lengthway of the marquee. At the cross table
reserved for His Majesty and certaiu ether dis
tinguished guests, a far more elaborate meal was
spread. Here the dishes and bowls of native
wood, aud the handsome poi bowls made from
the shells of cocoauuts of unusually large size,
and standing ou tripods formed also of cocoanut
shell prettily carved, were very much admired,
and produced a fine effect. Here too foreign
ideas had been allowed little further sway, inas
much as for each guest was placed a napkin,
and on each napkin lay a card beariug the uauie
of the guest, the cards themselves being very
beautifully printed in richly-colored floral de
signs. The table was hmded with delicacies too
numerous to permit of description. The guests
present at it were His Majesty the King,
the Princesses Liliuokalani and Likelike, His
Excellency Governor Domiuis, Hon. A. S. Cleg
horn, Hon. Mra. Tauahi Bishop, Hon. C. It.
Bishop, Right Rev. Bishop of Olba, His Excel

Finance, His Excellency the Minister of the

called li.. i.tv;:iL:ui Club, .which was instituted !

As h.n already been s .iid. something like four J
hundred guests must have sat down together to j
partake of the luii'i; but, 5u addition to these, !
there were 'is many more who preferred to look (
ou or wandt-r about the grounds during the
repast. A large number of Hawaiians also sat
down to the tables after th4r first occupants had
moved away. Altogetti. r, little sh. rt of a thou
sand must hive paid th. ir resps-ts to Her Royal
Highness on h.-r birthday, many of whom were
personally unknown her, but to whom she
had generously extended a hospitality worthy of
the sister of Kings.
Immediately after the luau, preparations were
made within the marquee f.r a hula ku!j, and
the dance was comm-.-nced ; but, it being found
that there was not room there for the crowd that
desired to see the liul.i, an adjournment was
made to the opm ground overlooked by the
verandahs of the house, from which a good view
of the interesting spectacle could be obtained by
the guests. Tliis species of entertainment, and
the siugfug of imles in honor of the Hiih Chiefess
and her family were kept up throughout the
evening, end till more than an hour past mid
night; large crow ds being present iu the grounds
all the time.
Iuthe evening Her Royal Highness entertained
a select party of nlout twenty of her Hawaiian
lady friends to supper, which was served at the
table iu the large numpiee previously spoken of
as reserved for distinguished guests. No gentle
men were present.
Last night. Her Royal Highness held a
reception, followed by a ball at which it seemed
to those present that the whole foreign popula
tion of Honolulu wire present, besides a very
large number of la .lies and gentlemen of Hawai
ian birth. His Majesty the King was one of the
guests, and arrived at the reeeptiou shortly be
fore 0 o'clock. Dancing commenced soon after;
His Majesty having his hostess as his partner in
the first quadrille, with Governor Domiuis and
H. R. II. Princess Likelike as -n-rt. Other
members of the Royal family, with the British,
American, and French Ministers aud Mr. Consul
Schaefer aud their ladies, and a few other ladies
and gentlemen, made up the set. Subsequently
the programme which included sixteen dances
was faithfully gone through by tho lovers of
dancing, and the festivities were kept up till be
tween 2 aud 3 o'clock. We must defer any
longer notice of this splendid entertainment till
our next issue.

MAORI ES AS IMMIGRANTS.
Mr Editor: Some time ago there appeared a
letter in one of the Honolulu papers, advocating
the trial ot introaucui' iM nones I rum iNew Zea
land into this Kingdom. 1 1 is quite evident that
the writer c f tl.nt letter knows little or nothing of
the natives of New Zealand, in their present posi
tion, and, in brief, I will enlighten hiin. The
North Island is theybode of nearly all the abo
riginals of New Zealand, and, from an enormous
population fifty years ago, their number has dw in
dled year by year down to some thin like 4&,UuU
This is accounted lor by internecine wars, disease.

of gro6S immorality, drunkenness, and carelesnesB
of lile- The Maories and the Kanakas are of the
same parent stock and both see in to have travelled
downwards to destruction since their contact
with the pale faces of civilization. Notwithstand
ing the vast and unsparing efforts of worthy Mis
sionaries of all denominations lo stem the tide of
fatality. Now, the remnant ol the various Ilapus
of the Maoris are at the present time the owners
ol land of great value in their various Tribal Dis
tricts as well as pai ticipators in the enjoyment of
the revenues or occupation ol numerous reserves
ol land, wisely, Ironi time to time, tct apart and
dedicated to their ut-e, by a considerate and far
seeing Lcgii-latuie. Do you think, Sir, that un
der these circumstances any one eingle Hapu of
Maories would cross such a Ion; fci under the
Utopian idea of bettering tlieir lot? No. lean
a si ure. you Sir, that not one single man can be
pernuailcd io cut his connection with the land of
Ins ancestors, whose very burying-pluees, bones
and spirits he worships in his own way. A num
ber ot years ago, many Maories "went to Victoria,
(Port Phillip) to mine for gold thero. Many
died on Bcndigo, and 1 am inloriucd that the rem
nant soon ceased to exist. If by any chance a
few hundred Maories did wish to migrate hither
wards, 1 am of opinion that the Imperial authori
ties vvoidd hesitate in coinciding with such a wish,
it would look just is il the authorities wished to get
rid of theui finally, f.r it would mean the ultimate
acquisition to the country of t heir interests in the
lands set apart for them ; in addition to other
reasons of a more important political nature. I
may as well state that the Maories i the present
day tciV not work What use would ihey be
here ? Their waihcnas are of the miho disposition,
lollow their lanes from place to piace. well horsed
generally, smoking, drinking, and free to enjoy
life without restriction. How would that do
here m a country whore morality, religion, and
temperance are nought to hcent iictd by legis

migration. Yours, etc. PaTEA.
Mr. EniTon, It is getting to be quite the
fashi.m of late, in some quarters, to represent
the native Hawaiian us innately hostile to the
foreiguer, and us being ready, whenever an
opportunity may offer, to illustrate his evil dispo
sition by acts of violence. This idea has been st
forth iu a newspaper of this city, wherein the pub
lic was warned of coming " disturbance and revo
lution ; " that un antagonism of races may put
the foreigner's life in danger ; that he will be
forced to cry out for protection against the
native ; aud generally, in this connection, that
" the sky is not bright and the clouds hang low."
It is true that " conscience makes cowards of
us all ; " but it is also true that, however much
tne Hawaiian mav ie sinneu against, nis
nral disposition 'is not one that retains spite- j

me t'Ol viiesiaii is nuie.i as me most. I
naturally amiable and tractable the long experi
ence of voyagers and missionaries amply proves
this. It must be a deep and irreparable injury
that shall prompt the Hawaiian to raise his
hand against the life of the foreigner. And this j
assertion needs no proof, for it is patent enough
to all who have resided among this people for i
any length of time. No old resident, in any port '
of these Islands, has ever dreamed of going
armed for self-defense : and t j sleep with open j
doors and windows has been the rule with house- '
keepers, time out of miud. ' the great majority i
of the Hawaiians always have 1 ecu and yet con- j
tinue " content to live side by side with the for
eigner, trusting in all important matters to his :
superior skill, education and energy.' lhe ex
Mll" . w naii, ' DJ- -
ceptiona to this general rule will be found on 1
examination, to nri from some wrong or ro's
nian.iga raebt ou the part of the foreigner.
To publish to th- woild the statement that
the property or the lives of the foreigner resid
ing iu these Islands is now, oi is likely to be in
the future, in peril from disturbance and revo
lution " bv the natives, is a blunder. It is
worse; forthe Assertion is a libel pure and sim
ple on the nation, emanating from either gross
ignorance of the native character, or from the
dipths of aa envious mind, in which " lb wish
is father to the thought." H.toi.ic Kamuini.
