American Loyalty to tlie Monarchy.
One of the leading features of the faith of
the ancient Hawaiian was his absolute de
votion to his Chief; ant the Hero, Kame- j
hameha the Firt, concentrate! the loj-alty
of this nation iu himself alone as the Sove Y
reign Cniei of llie Arcnipeiigo.
When
fhndfMiprs ramp here t i seek fortune or
lortigners canu litre n seeK lonune, or
advance their interests, they found a strong
and well ordered, monarchical government,
firmly established by a native warrior aud
statesman.
The American teachers of Christianity
had no savage misrule, or lawlessness to
contend with, they were received and
afforded every opportunity to carry on their
missionary enterprise, ami they soon estab
lished themselves as the confidential advis
ers of the Hawaiian Sovereign, Chiefs and
People; and when they, with other, had
assisted the Native Government to organ
ize an administration of affaiis, in accor
dance with enlightened foreign ideas the-:!
chief adviser of the Hawaiian Kincf and
a member of the missionary enterprise;
the late Dr. G. P. Judd, a native of the
State of New York, placed this declaration
on record " I consider the support of Mon-
r, , . . , j ... j.
archy on the Sandwich Islands to be indis-
pensible to the preservation of the King,
Chiefs and the People." And again," I
... , . i-
consider it my duty to the King and his
Sovereignty to discourage all republican ten-
dencies and xpeciou attempts to level and
T t i i i,.:..
degrade him, are calculated to undermine
his influence and authority, and place these
Islands in subjection to the dominion of
whites." And this faithful American ad
viser of the Kamehamehas, when he visited
England in 1850, ordered, and had executed
under his direction a crown for his adopted
Sovereign Kamehameha III. An Ameri
can Attorney-General, IticonI, united in the
declaration made by Minister Judd. It can
be said that the municipal laws ami consti
tution of this Monarchy, under its various
chanires, have been
the work of Chief
Justice Lee and other American citizens.
RepresentatiVi'S of the Great Republc j
sent here from time to time, such as Allen j
of Maine, Gregg of Illinois, ami Pierce of j
Massachusetts, have at the close of their !
service for the republic, been ready and
willing to accept office and serve under the

ALIENS.
THE manner iu which certain persons,
claiming to he American citizens, used
the opportunity of the dinner to General
Comly and of the meeting convened to ar
range a reception to Mr. Daggett, to rail
against the King and our political institu-
tutions, was uot merely an ofleucc against
the country in which they acknowledge
themselves to be aliens, but was an olleuce
also against the Government of their own
country, which selects and appoints able
and distinguished men to represent it at
the Hawaiian Court, and is both able and
willing to obtain for American citizens the
redress of any grievance, properly brought
before it through the medium of its diplo
matic representatives, but which will never
tolerate seditious conduct on the part of its
own subjects against the government of a
friendly State. If Americans resident in
Hawaii have any fancied grievance to air,
the machinery fordoing so has been pro
vided for them by their own government,
which has always been ably represented
here. A suggestion, or a remonstrance, ad
dressed by an American Minister to the
Government of this, or any other country
is sure to receive a deferential attention ;
and for many obvious reasons this would be
especially the case here. Certa uly we are
not likely to hear of an American Minister
proffering to our Government a remon
strance based on the fact that we have "a re
publican structure with a monarchical roof.'
Until Americans, who are aliens here, and
who pride themselves on their intention to
remain ko, have some real grievance, which
will form a tit subject for diplomatic action,
they should hold their tongues and not
meddle in the politics of a country whose
institutions they profess to despise, .and
whose public affairs they delibr rately refuse
to take part in in a lejiitimte way.
Tir British Commissioner Major James Hay
Wodehouse and the Inspector General of Iia mi
grant Hon. A. S. Cleghorn returned in II. B. M.'s
Sappho from their tour of inspection in Eastern
Maui and Hawaii. Our Commissioner was on this
occasion the guest of Major Wodehouse at vlne,e
disposal the Sappho had been placed by the Ad
miral for the purposes of his tour of inspection.
We need hardly say that Mr. Cleghorn received
from Major Wodehouse and from Captain Clark
and his officers every courtesy that could be ex
tended to him. We understand that the geueral
result of the inection made by the Commission
era show that whilst none of the plantations visited
during this concluding trip are quite equal to the
host on Oahu and Maui in their provision for the
comfort and health of their laborers all are better
than the least favorable specimens of management
met with on those islands.

We record to-day the marriage of our fellow

Wiikx the Italian man-of-war Cristofuro Colombo

for a wlnle, and we are sure titat tiiey win te made
to fee themselves 'at home while here.
From a conversation with Mr. P. C. Jones, jnn.,
we learn that there is no foundation for the rumor
referred to by our correspondent ' Ubiq," to the
effect that he remained on board one of the Amer-
l icaii war vessels during the riot that occurred at
the election of King Kalakaua.
Thirty years ago the " Mission Church of Micro

turers of the implement, and Messrs. W. L.
Green aud II. Macfarlane, agents for the firm in
this country, were also preeent.
For a month pist the plough has been at work,
breaking up new ground at Spreckelsville. The
place choeeo for the experiment is soma four or
five miles south of the mills, about opposite Wai
kapu. The land here is almost lerel and verj
suitable for the use of the steam plough, except
certain stonj patches which have to be avoided.
Besides other weeds, the ground is full of the
e'ima, the roots of which are very troublesome
ia ordinary ploughing, spreading through tbe
soil, which is a highly tenacious clay.
When Colonel Spreckels and bis guests arrived
on tbe ground, the plough was at work. After
it had made a number of rounds, and all present
had examined it and its working, tested tbe con
di nn in which it left the soil, measured the
d . in of the furrows, and otherwise satisfied
themselves as to the quality of work the plough
was doio, it was detached and the barrow run
across the ground that had just been ploughed.
Subsequently the patent turning cultivator was
attached to the gear. The work of this imple
ment elicited a general outburst of astonishment
and satisfaction, at both its thoroughness and the
speed with which it was done. Some detailed
account of these capital implements will, no
d nibt. he ol interest to our readers. As the
roorce of power which enables us to utilize thee
laoor-s.ivin contrivances, we will take
TUE ENGINES
first in order. Ot these there are two, exactly
alike, between wtiich the cultivating implements
are pulled backwnrds nti.i forwards. This inno
vation ujion (he t-mlier svstcm id steam plough
ing, iu whicli - 1 1 1 1 ue engine, stationed at a
corner of the ri : I, used, is due to the dis
crimination ot Mr. Fowler, the head of the
present firm. lu clearly saw that this method
ol cultivation would not b -come popular until
some method in rtpid and requiring less atten
tion to details, whs devised. Lnder the old ss
(eui tiie engine was fixed at one corner of the
patch to be ploughed, and a np- was carried all
around it, the plough passing buckwnrd and for
wards between two frames, known as iho anchors,
which hud to be constantly chilled. Mr. Fow
ler's first improvement was to do away with one
ol these anchors and let the engine travel down
one side of the field. Bat every one who has
tried both systems has found (he double-engine
method so incompurubly the best and simplest,
that it is certain eventually to supercede all con
trivances for the use of a single engine.' The
engines supersede the anchors, and move
iheutselves; no long rope to pass round the
field is needed und the troublesome job of fixing
a pulley nt the further corner lor it to travel
round is d .no away with. When first used at a
competitive exhibition the double engine plow
had finished the whole of its seven acre test be
fore that worked with a single engine hd been
got into gear to make a start.
Tbe engines imported for Spicckclsvillu have
all the latest improvements; their special feature
however is that they are compound engines. Al
though the comjHjuud system has no long been iu
use (or marine engines and has revolutionized
steam traffic at .-ea, this is the first time that the
principle has been applied to portable engines.
The steam enters the cylinder on the right hand
side of the engine which is 8 inches in diameter
at a pressure of from 120 to 140 lbs and having
done its work there passes into the other cylinder
which is 14 inches iu diameter and is there ex
panded. The steam being thus used both at
high and low pressure the saving ol fuel is very
great, being estimated to be at least thirty per
cent. the engines at Spreckelsville are each of
24 h. p. but develop au actual indicated b. p. of
70, moving at the rate of 180 revolutions per
minute. The length of the stroke is 14 inches,
and when the engines are working at the above
named rate of speed, the eye almost loses distinct
visiou of the piston und valve rods.
The stroke gives direct motion to a
bevilled co wheel which fits to a simi
larly bcvilled pinion wheel on a vertical
shaft at the side of the engine. This
communicates its motion by a cog wheel to the
drum on whicli the wire rope is wound, whicli is
also placed vertically. The diameter of the
drum being considerable, it makes about one re-.
volution to five revolutions of the driving shaft.
The drum is fixed below the boiler, having it
pin wheel ou its upper rim. That part uf it on
which the rope is wound is nearly a loot deep
and easily accommodates the 400 yards of rope
used in ploughing, with a considerable spare
piece. An arm attached to the frame ol the
engine carries pair of guiding rollers through
which the rope runs in its course to and Irom the
drum. These rise and fall automatically as the
rope coils on the drum, thu -'laying" it
properly. The gearing by whicli this is aecoui
plistu-d in situated beneath the drum, and is verv
ingenious. It is an invention of Mr. Fowler's
and is patented.
The nr.iitntry pressure of steam used is as al
ready slated 120 to 140 lbs, hul the boilers have
been tested (o 250 lbs. Ttiey and the gearing
aud the steel wire rope will stand a breaking
strain ol 35 tons. Each engine weighs 16 tons
but even in soft ground they move themselves
readily and can traverse ground in which a horse
would sink to his knees.
THE PLOUGH
The plough itself is double, there being three
alinres with theirvnecessary name work attached
to each end of the carriage. The arms supporting
these -in- obliquely set so that when one end is
(re-cd down to the ground tne other is in the
air. Tne plough being ready to start the rope
is seiz-nl by a clip attached to the carriage and the
drum on the engine at the lurthcrcnd of the line is
put in motion, gently at first and then at full
speed, which means (us on - several occasions
timed by the writer of this notice.) rather mure
than 400 feet per minute or about 4 miles psr
hour. It requires two men to attend to tiie
plough. One sits on the carriage and attends to
the gesir, having before him a little steering
wheel with whicli he guides the plough, keeping
one wheel of the carnage in the outside furrow
ol the I. is; ploughing. The other man sits on
the outer side of the plough, and his duty is to
Keep it clear of the weeds and other matter which
m-iy clog the frame. As the plough moves away
the rope unwinds easily from the drum of the
engine it is leaving whicli is ungeared from the
driving shaft in a simple manner. When the
plough reichcs the end of the line the arm which
has been in the air is brought down for work.
u process which lifts tiie other clear of the grouud;
the shares are cleared of the soil adhering to
them ; the pleugh is shifted to its new position
and is ready to return. Meanwhile the engine
that is to pull it back has shifted itself the ne
cessary distance. A strip 3 feet 9 inches wide
and 385 yards long is ploughed at each opera
tion, and this, with the time necessary for
clearing and shitting the plough, appears to
occupy about five minutes. The depth of the
lurrows was 12 inches.
TIIE HARROW.
This implement is eighteen feet wide con isting
of six pieces each having three rows of five tyuos.
Only one man is needed to guide and manage it.
Being very strongly constructed it can be driven
at a high speed. As much as CO acres can be
gone over with it in a day. Its work ie very
thorough. When used in land covered as this
was with strong shrubby growths the branches
and roots gather in the harrow. To assist in
clearing, a lever is added, which when the engine
begins to pull the harrow back lifts the frames
leaving the rubbish behind. As soon as it i clear
the driver lets go the catch and the harrow t ikes
the ground. The frames can be removed trom
the carriage, and rollei or other implements sub
stituted for them ; and they are sometimes con
structed with one hall a harrow and (he oilier a
roller.
TUE TURNING CULTIVATOR
j Everything connected with the mechanism ol
j this implement is highly .ingenious, the beauty
ol the contrivances being theTreimplicity. Ihe
cultivator u?ed at SpreckelsvillellHnine tynes;
they are made with'us many as thirteen- They
can be set to work to a depth o" even eighteen
inches if necessary. The work done at the-CJ-
u..a.Wu was c,gnt incues id uepio, urcauiu o.

though tiiis implement doe not turn over the
soil, it leaves it so thoroughly pulverized that
the foot sinks in it. At the aume time the
-Ujeed of working is much greater than with the
j plough, partly on account oi the increased
j breadth taken, but chiefly because there is no
time lost at either end. The cultivator, is turned
work and moves forward tbe occeaaarv distance.
This is a Mgnal to the other engine to begin
winding. The first effect of tbe pull ia to drag
round the arm to which tbe rope is attached,
which by its motion lifts the tynea out of the
ground, through the medium of a crank in the
axle. The machine then rapidly tarns round,
being guided by the man in charge, who does uot
leave bis seat. As oon as it is in position a
catch is released, tbe tynes take the ground, and
tbe cultivator is off again at a speed of four or
five miles an hour. Thus thirty or more acre
can readily be efficieoLy worked in a day with a
machine of tbe size exhibited.
COafTlEISOXS.
In order to compare the cost of working with
a steam plough instead of with the ordinary horse
plough, many things have to be taken into con
sideration. In such land as is now being broken
up at Spreckelsville, a double plough cannot be
used, and it is considered good work, with a
team of five horsei, to plough two acres a day.
Two men or a man and a boy are required tot at
tend to the work. The steam plough requires
two engineers, besides tbe two men on the plough.
Situated where it is it keeps a mule cart and one
man constantly at work to brmg up tbe coal, of
which the two engineers consume from 20 to 25
cwt. per day. A man and a two horse team are
also required to fetch up the supply of water.
Expenses of this sort will ot course vary with
tbe locality in which the plough is working.
As soon as the water is available from the
Waihee ditch, it will be at hand for tbe engine
to take up its own supply. But the most
important element for consideration is the
quality of the work, and its effect on t:ie sub- .
sequent crop No horse plough could till the :
land as this steam plough does. That there will i
be a superior growth of cane, and possibly a su- '
perior quality of it, wiiere the steam plough ha j
been used may be taken as a certainty Al-
though a minimum of cultivation see-ns by some j
people to be looked upon us the .in : profitable
method with sugsr-cune, in greater mistake
could be made. No crop will better repay care
fui cultivation, the return lor it being far away
in excees of the expense. Toe comparative mer
it of the stexiu plough therefore cannot be finally
calculated un'il ( lie crop has been raised and
passed through the mill.

Mb. Editor: A system of indirectly subsidiz
ing monopolies is prevalent in this Kingdom,
and any person desirous of settling here in busi
ness as a merchant or storekeeper is at a loss to
account why private interests should be so
jealously guarded. Honest competition is the
life of trade, and iu those communities where
restrictions do not exist, trade has increased be
youd all expectation, profits more equitably dis
tributed aud the imports consequently pay t
proportionate increase of revenue iuto the pub
lic treasury. Concessions sanctioned by the
legislature for u term of years to the promoters
and executors of public works, such as harbors.
docks, railways, tramways are very proper, as
they are for the public use ami henetit aud ne
cessitate the outlay of i in men-., n.inis of money
aud these special privih'i-s so grauted are
carefully guarded for tiie public interest by enact
ments . mdiug these coiporatioas to manage
such enterprises pr.;i.rly. But it s-ems absurd
that no oue is to s I. ti-.li bur h tutive, hence it
is scarce aud l-ar:de-p sen tishiii is entirely
unknown, and consequently a staple- article of
food is very costly and inferior. Il this trade
wereopeu we should tiud e-iiploymeut for a great
number of people,' the supply of fish would be
unlimited, aua the cost reduced to oue-fourth of
it : present price, thereby enriching the entire
population by reducing the cost of a staple arti
cle of diet.
The cost of mt buctionee.'s license is au ludi
ruct subsidy to au individual, consequently this
branch of trade is represented by one firm only
we are, thcrefoie, at the rarcy of the holder
of this license; if you are obliged to sU your
goods by auction you " must employ tae ouly
channel available, no matter whether suitable
or not.
Now, Mr. Editor, I want to know what I am
to do iu face of au Act published in your paper
on the 31st ultimo, regulating the license of
commercial traveling agents. 1 was going to
repieseut three houses aud must pay a tax of
$500 for each, or $1,500 in all yearly, in this is
land only, riow, m spite of this Act ran I take
uu office for .10 a mouth, put overtho door a
neat sigu labelhd "Messrs. Knowevcry thing,"
pay $50 a year for a trading license iu all $170
per annum; represent nfty bouses if 1 like indi
rectly, aud swindle the country out of 8500 for
every house I represent? If I cau do thi-, and
I am unprincipled euough to test the Act what
need of such laws being passed? Every mer
cantile house in this commuuity very properly
represents auy number of foreign houses and
pays but 3d0 per auuum trading license for the
firm; therefore if this law is only to protect in-
uiviuuai mteresis u is wrong iu principle, nnan
cially impolitic, and tells the world in plaiu
language not to come here, and that we do uot
want your ousiucss or your company. X.
Mr. Editor, Please allow me through your
columns to call the attenliou of the proper officer
to the uuisauce at present existing on Lin ma
street, opposite the residence of one of our
proiuiueut citizens, and caused by a " perpetual
motion sprinkler, which compels foot passe n
gers to take the road during uight or day to
escape a thorough drenching and the mud. Iu
the daytime the jets of water cau be seen, but
at night they must be first felt. This is not ouly
a common nnisance, but a breach of our irrigat
ing law, and should be abated as well as the
vines that grow over the fence, and which also
obstruct the Hide walk by the same residence.

It.rrraiUs.
Mr. Editor. -I read with much interest the
letter of X." ou the subject of recreation. He
wi.shcs to kuow how it is that all sports aud
games are at such a discount in these Islands
and is puzzled thereby.
I do not thiuk it is hard to assign reasons.
The first aud foremost is the want of daylight.
the second want of time. A mau works hard all

already a qa.irtertsrt5-Ijet us suppose he is

out to Makiki, and waste another tweSlT minutes.
Then the stumps, balls, and bata havL to be

With baseball I am uot so conversant, but 1
believe the game can be got nnder way iu lens
time.
. The above conditions are a favorabl as can
be imagined, and necessitate a man dining iu
town. If he lives in any other direction, and
dines at home, it is impossible for him to come
to practice. Again, any one who haa played the
game iu comfort at home, with a deceut wicket,
net, pavilion to dre8Slu, ground, bowler, and
all the necessary etceteras of cricket, w.mld
speedily get disgusted with having to do all the
coolie " work himself.
Base ball player mast I should think agree
with me in the latter respect.
At for a gymnasium, we are told that is to
come, I wish it Godspeed, we want oue badly.
X speak9 of boating as practicable, so it would
be to a certain extent, if there were cot the
difficulty of the daylight again. However ve are
nearer the water than the cricket field, and au
attempt, if made, would no doubt, meet with
some succeafc. We have nothing of the attract
ive iu boating here, beyond the bare exercise.
We have no lovely rivers, uo charming nooks to
ateal iuto and flirt away au afteruoou ith your
pretty 'coseswain," no cool "backwaters," uo
weirs, no grassy lawns or "Eel-pie Islands" to
picnic ou. Iu fact, uone of the thousand aud
oue attractions that make boating so enjoyable
iu countries where such things eiist.
So you see Mr. X there is little that makes
boating acceptable iu the eyes of the youth iu
Honolula. Up and down the harbor round the
bell buoy, past the quarantine grounds aud
back to the wharf.
I do not think the young meu tere are indo
lent exuctly. Lassoing cattle, bullock driving,
and shooting are not gentle exercises, and there
are few meu who do not do one or the other.
Nevertheless, all who are interested in sport,
must be grateful to Mr. X fur veutilatiug the
subject. If he will endeavor to wake up the
gymnasium people from their lethargy, he will
confer a boou on the community. "Pwir..'

from Home to Hear News of Yourself
The following is a specimen of the way
in which news about these Islands is manu
factured in the States. It appears in the
Pittsburg Weekly Dispatch as a special
telegram from the Washington corre
spondent of that paper under the heading,
lie offended Kalakaua."
Washington. August 9. Among the
visitors at the Treasury Department to-day
was Col. W. II. Armstrong, of Virginia,
who is on his way to his farm at Hampton
afer a two years' sojourn in the Sandwich
Islands. Col. Armstrong was coaxed out to
Honolulu by the tender of the position as
Attorney-General, which he accepted and
held for about two years. While acting in
this capacity he wrote several letters home
giving a description of life among the sub
jects of King Kalakaua. and in one of them
he referred to the prevalence of leprosy and
other loathsome diseases among the natives;
that the extinction of the race was a mere
matter of time, and setting forth the grounds
for such an opinion.
The letter was shown to the editor of a
paper published in Virginia, und he printed
it in full. In due time a copy of the paper
containing the charges reached llonolulu
and was shown to the King. He hastily
convened his Legislature and It id the sub
ject before them for action. As a result of
the agitation Col. Armstrong was requested
to resign his position, which tie promptly
did, stating that he was glad of the opportu
nity to get away from the country. The
next ship bound for San Francisco found
him a pissenger. and he stated his intention
of sticking to fanning in the future. This
case is parallel with that of Commodore
Shufeldt, who h s recently been recalled
from a snug position on account of the publi
cation of a private letter.
Political Nosology.
'Yes," said the Government Physician as
he motioned his newly arrived medical
friend to a seat, and pushed over to him his
f . , .
dox oi cigars; yes, we nave some curious
ciises to deal with here, outside of our hos
pital and domestic practice, and as they are
all "chanty cases, and will not be denied a
hearing, they are more curious than profit
able.
There is the 'sorehead." He is generally
tne noisiest oi tne lot, and is sure to be ar
rayed against the existing order of thincs. He
belongs to the clique of 'outs." The parly
attacked by this disease needs plenty of air.
He needs it to v ntilat; his " wrongs'' and
to alleviate the sense of ' oppression" under
which he complains of laboring.
The atmosphere surrounding the Gov
ernment Ho.se is recommended in obstin
ate cases, and a .small ''sop'' has been known
to work wonders.
