At tho dinn. r given to tin- l.ri ijn IU -presuta-tives t tliH lJi.stnii Exh.i-ition on the evening of September 5th, Mr. Carter was tailed upon for a speech. We take the following report of it from the liostoii Morning Journal : "The foreign gentlemen who are iu Boston in connection with the Foreign Exhibition, which vr.s opi ned on Monday, became the guests of the State last evening, and were by its representa tives given t d.tiuer at the Hotel Venthmie. There wt le about seventy gentlemen seated at the trtt.les, presided over by lion. Geo. C. Crocker, President of Senate. has daily increased and the native soldiery Lave learned to sympathize with them. The rioters have even made demonstrations aitainst native officials. Fresh troops ag gravated the trouble and the natives have at last broken overall restraint. The Amer- ican Consul is not known to nave given oi-fen-e to the natives, as he took no part in tle recent demonstrations, but the Canton ites are up in arms against all resident for eigners and it is feared that the preseut riots will culminate in a war of extermina tion. No foreign nation has a naval repre sentation at Canton adequate to protect its interests or people there, most of the men-of-war being at Hongkong. The Marquis Tseng said to night that he feared the news about the assassination of Seymour was true and that a prolongation of the dispute between France and China was tending to inflame the Chinese beyond control in which case it would be absolute ly impossible for the local authorities any where within the Kuupire to afford protec tion to the lives or property of foreign resi dents. J.'p to the 6th of October no answer had been received to the dispatch of the Secre tary of State asking for information con cerning the reputed outbreak at Canton, and the assassination of Seymour. Washington, Oct. 8. A cable message was received at the Department of State to-day from Consul-General Denny, stating that quiet prevails in Cauton and that there is no truth iu the report of the assas sination of United States Consul Seymour, who is alive and well. This telegram was received in reply to one sent by the Acting Secretary of State yesterday morning, ask ing for Information on the subject. London, Oct. 8. A dispatch received here say9 that the rumor which was sent as a fact to New York, that consul ey moar of Canton had been assassiuated, was put in currency last night in a reading room In an obscure town in the north of England, but that it had then no founda tion in fact. The story is entirely uncon firmed. Paris. October 7th.-Negotiations be tween France and China arc virtually sus pended. Kmperor William of Germany has sent a telegram of sympathy to King Alfonso, on account of the recent insults offered to him whilst in Paris. Alfonso was furious and demanded that President Grevy's apology should take an official form. The telegram of Emperor William indicates that the in- Leprosy in Wisconsin- The Sanitary News has recently noticed in several foreign and domestic papers, statements as to the alarming prevalence of leprosy in Wisconsin, one of which even stated that uuless prompt measures" were soon taken the State would be " terribly af flicted." Doubting the accuracy of these statements, a letter was addressed to Dr. J. T. Reeve, Secretary of the Wisconsin State Board of Health, asking for the exact facts as regards leprosy in that State. The fol lowing is his rply : Editou of the Sanitary Ne ws, Your letter referring to a statement which has appeared in several papers, that leprosy in a highly contagious form exists and is gpreadiug with comparative rapidity in Wisconsin, is duly received. You ask for the exact facts in the case, which are as fol lows : The article referred to is wholly untrue and sensational. It appeared first in "The Milwaukee Sentinel," ami was published on tlie authority of a physician of that city, the editor himself, in a brief editorial in the same is-ue, expressing doubt of its accura cy. The truthfullness of the report was at once denied by myself and by others, and the physician who is responsible for the story was publicly requested to furnish to the State Board of Health, any evidence he had of the existence of any cases of disease in the State, that it might be fully investi gated. He has not only failed to do o, but he declines, when privately solicited by tlie editor ot the "Sentinel," to allow his name even to be given to the State Board of Health fur personal correspondence. The inference is irresistable that the author of the story that leprosy exists in Wisconsin has no evidence which he can present to prove hii ..sserlion. i So much for the sensational statement re ferred to, but I may add tlie following facts which, though it is known that leprosy has been brought into the North-western States In a few Instances by immigrants, chiefly Trom Norway, will show, I think quite con clusively.that there is no occasion for alarm therefrom, and which render it doubtful if there is now even one genuiue case of this disease in Wisconsin. 1. The whole number of cases that have been brought to us In this way is very small and none have originated I u this State so far as can be ascertained by careful inquiry. Dr. Hoegh, of this Board, who has an ex tensive acquaintance among Norwegians, and who so long ago as 1S89, instltued spec ial inquiry by circulars concerning the prevalence of leprosy among them, oould then learn of but two or three cases, and having ever since kept up an interest in this investigation, he has, in these fourteen years, seen but four cases, two at least, if . a .1 I TI f rnnirll'a not all of which, are now dead. Dr. Hoegh's opportunity for knowing whether leprosy exists iu Wisconsin or not, is therefore ex ceptionally good, and his opinion may safe ly be accepted as authority, yet is a recent article to a Norwegian paper he character izes the Seutiuel's story as utterly groundless. 2. Since the appearance of the article in question, there has been held a meeting of the district meuicai association wmcu em braces that section of the State in which leprosy is said to be prevalent and at which there was present a iuu representation oi the medical men, who, of all others, would be most likely to be well informed concern ing it, yet the subject beiug presented, not oneof them knew of a single case in the State, two cases haa Deen seen, iuoe five years ago, the other twelve years ago, but both were dead. 3. The State Board of Health of Wiscon sin has official reporters iu every county, and in nearly every township in the State, Mr. Crocker saia : Among the distinguished diplomatic representatives present to-night I will Kfclect the Hawaiian Minister, Mr. Carter to speak on their behalf. Hon-. II. A. P. Cartkr. Mr. President and Gentlemen I don't know whether I consider it a favor to he asked to speak after the eloquence of the Lieutenant-Governor and the Mayor of Boston and the representatives of the municipality of Paris ; but being called upon to sneak for the diplomatic corps, let me say for my colleagues that many of them hoped to be present at Boston at this time, but many things have prevented them ; some of them have been detained in Washington, others have gone to see the completion of that truly American en terprise, a transcontinental railway, which would hardly have been completed but for the ability, the energy and the probity of the man who put through the Union Pacific Kulway, and who is represented h r- to-night ly his son, your Lieutenant-Governor And this mention ot a trans Continental railway leads me to my own home. It is nc' dless for me tell the most of you of the relations between the Hawaiian Islands and tho United States commercial and political which are more intimate than those between the United States an dany other foreign State. And this, gentlemen, has grown out of the natural condition of affairs. The Hawaiian Islands, although a lonely kingdom iu the Pacific, are to the United States of wonderful importance. Some years since in Washington a gentleman holding a hi 'h position in the councils of your country, said to me: I said to the President, I take but little interest in t!.e affairs of Europe ; gentlemeM may r- present us there, but geuius must represent America in the Pacihc, tor the future of America is in the Pacific.' Aud, gen tlenien. we in our little kingdom there as au American colony, yet not au Americau depend eUev ever think of the magnanimity which al ways characterizes Americans in their dealings with other men. They havs given us what they most prize independence while extending to us their favor aud protection. The Hawaiian is lauds are your outpost (your defeuce if need be, for which I hope there may never be occasion), but your outpost of Americau civilization iu the Pacific, that will always be held by Americau statesmanship ; because one thing is certain, th American never goes backward. Applause. Gentlemen, I acknowledge, as the representative of the diplomatic corps, that it is perfectly prop er in your President to give precedence to tbo.-se who represi-ut the commercial and pacihc inter ests of th world ; if all the pursuits of the world were peaceful, there would bo no need of diplo matists Let me say that when your invitation went across the Pacific to the Hawaiian Islauds to be represented here in the Industrial Exhibition, His Majesty at once bethought himself that he could not do himself or his kingkom more honor or pay himself a higher compliment than to place at the head of the commission one who, us a Bo.,ton merchant, had held his place in State utr..-t for more than a score of years. I allude to tho Hon. Heurv A. P. irce. Our late family f Vinr,a wm culled K.iinf hauieha. which in Ha ... .- - aiian means the lonely one."' That was be stowed npon the family for their eminence and it applies well to our kingdom, it is a lonely one. But, gentlemen, it marks the division between the civilization of the East and the civilization of the West. We are independent; we propose to remain so, but this is certain, we must exercise an influence npon your Western coast, which, whatever may be the pride of the Eastern men of the preseut day, b-t me say, will yet be the great roHut of America. Whatever occurs we must ex ercise an iufln.ncc upon you aud you npon us, We usk of you and we propose to maintain the most friendly, the closest, and most generous, the most cordial relations we ask of you sim ply that affection, that regard, which in the past has been extended t-i us ; receiving it we are content. It is enough for us if we receive that which your late Secretary of State called " the American influence of the Pacific,'' that we should have American sympathy, th-it we should have American regard ; aud we will maintaiu as pare, as strong, as e irues? a type of American civilization as you mintain in this boasted though little Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the priceless city of Boston, Applause. i conference is to be held in Sydney in No- vember to consider a number of questions j of interest to all the colonies, and how joint action can be taken so as to prevent : if Ksible the formation of convict settle ! ments close to their shores, which would be a constant annoyance during times oi peace, and which would endanger their , nit I nu 9, i ii 1 commerce iii time of war.

Everyone present passed a most enjoyable evening. Kohala, Oct. 19, 13.1. The weather in this dis trict is unusually dry. Hind's mill, the Union and Halawa, are all bus ily engaged grinding. The ladies of Kohala are getting up a bazaar in aid of the new Anglican Church. There is only a small debt to be wiped off. The church will seat 90 persons comfortably, which is quite large enough for this dishict. tion. It was made in Ilonolnln. and. for general excellence of workmanship and design, will com pare favorably with much of -t cabinetwork. It is made of native woods i mahogany and black walnut. It is set . . . j.cainst the wall j at the head of the stairway. In the vicinity, on J the walls, are suspended maps of the Islands, and i showing tlnir central position on the routes of the I steamship lines from America to China and Aus- j trali. There arc also maps of different kinds. NOTES. The Sew Steamer, " The Planter." This valuable addition to the fleet of tho Inter- Island Steam Navigation Company arrived on Saturday mornimg, in command of Captain J. Sass. She made the passage in eleven days, having encountered some very heavy weather shortly after leaving San Francisco. Tlio Planter was constructed at Port Blakely. Her engine and machinery were put in at San Francisco by William Deacon. She is ICO feet long and 20 feet eam. The hold is 20 feet deep. The engine has a cylinder of lO'i inches and a 21-inch stroke, 19 by 21 feet high pressure, and 33 by 24 feet low pressure. The boiler is 11 feet in diameter, and there are hanging eaves under each deck beam. The boats, sails and other appurtenances are an hois.tod by steam. Her capacity is 405 tons. The Planter will take the place of the Iwalani on the Kau. Kona and Maalaea route. Captain Bates, the present commander of the Iwalani, will be promoted to the new vessel, and Purser Simer- sou will aho accompany him. A little work to be done on the engines will occupy about a weok, after which she will commence running. We bespeak for the Planter and her owners all the success they deserve.

The charge in the per sonnel of the Government involves no change of policy. During the the last mouth the subject of the proposed annexation of some of the groups of Islands in the Pacific by the colo nies has been further discussed. It is felt that owing to the extension of commerce, to the need of providing for the adminis tration of law and order amongst the Poly nesian islands, their being brought under British rule is an absolute necessity.

The Kingdom of Hawaii, commonly known aa the Sadwich Island's, has an altogether unique and interesting exhibit at the foreign exhibition. It is located in the northeast end of the Washing ton Hall upper gallery, and can be reached by stairway or elevator. The most conspicuous thing in this exhibit ia a splendid wardrobe belonging to King Kalakaaa, and loaned by him for this xhlbi- drawa by snub-uts of lolani College, the native university, which are very good specimens of school work; also drawings of the" volcanoes, showing the lava lake in the crater of the volcano Kilanea, Mauna Loa. with lava streams running down its sides, and a drawing showing lava jets. Then there are some line photographic views in the Sandwich Islands; of Honolulu from all parts of the compass, summit of the crater of Haleakala, in the island of Maui, the height of whose summit is nearly 11.000 feet above s a level. Then there are specimens of medicinal plants, tapper plant, the kapa plant, from which the native cloth is made, etc., etc. To the utilitarian, perhaps the most interesting part of the exhibition are the forty samples of centrifugal and other sugars from the various plantations in the islands. There are also several specimens of the sugar canes grown on the islands. There are several oil paintings shown, without frames, repre senting various scenes in the islands. Thesa are: ' Waialua. Island of Oahu;' ' Mouth of Hanalei River, Island of Kauai:' ' Mormon Settlement, Is land of Oahu;' -Waianae and View of Ewa, on same Island." They are not high works of art consider ing the prices asked for them. The first case reach ed from the stairway contains some very curious and historic relics, suggestive of the time not many years ago either when the natives of these Islands were barbarians, but whose civilization has been nearly altogether due to the efforts of Boston missionaries. These relics are mostly con tributed by King Kalakaua. They consist of shell j ornaments, ancient ivory aud and bead necklace, ancient ornamental belt or necklace of dogs' teeth, worn by Hawaiian das cers, necklace of "fcox" seeds with ancient ivory ornament, ivory and hair brace let, etc. In the case are thirty-six specimens of native woods, jars of preserved tamarinds and guava jelly. In the rear of this case on a table are canned pineapples, box of hard bread made in Honolulu, among them "Boston crackers" and saloon crack ers, three bound volumes of the Honolulu Friend, a missionary journal, a bound volume of a paper printed in the Hawaiian language called Ka Elele Poakoln, and a bound volume of the Pacific Com mercial Advertiser, both of which papers are issued by the same publishing company in Honolulu, in the next case are two hats and two fans, one of each lieing made of rice straw and of corn husks, and specimens of arrowroot and coffee beans, contrib uted by nenry May & Co. of Honolulu. In the next case are specimens of arrowroot in powder and prepared in dried or baked thin cakes for the table. Then thera are a number of clubs or bats of a black hard, heavy wood, which arc used for beating the native kapa, or bark cloth, is made into a pulp. They may, perhaps, be called hand-pulping ma chines. Suspended from the wall, near the dress ing cae of King Kalakaua, are to bo seen samples of the kapa cloth, both printed and plain. It bears a faint resemblance to tho paper cloth of Japan, though greatly inferior to it. Yet it is interesting as showing an original native production. Then there are shown specin-T i of soils, rice cleaned and in the car, a kind of ground uut which are very rich in oil, and have bejn used by the natives for candles, fibre of tlio pnlu plant, a kind of moss which grows around tho stems of ferns on the Is lands, and is used for stuffing mattresses; samples of sheep's wool from the islands, indicating that both long and fine staple can be grown there, a crab or shellfish which contains a deadly poison, olouaa, or native hemp fibre, samples of orange, cofl'eo and mango trees, paamohu, or material lor hat braid, three ancient stone lamps, evidently made of trap or lava stone, a chip hat, adzea and pounders of a hard and tough basalt stone, the edge9 having evidently been brought to a kind of blunt edge by grinding or rubbing on some other stone. Last of all, but quite characteristic, there are shown specimens of native sulphur and scoria from the volcanoes. Tho scoria looks like a black slag and bears evidence of having at one time been in liquid form. There is of course a good deal more t this Hawaiian exhibit than a more hasty description of this kind could be expected to give. It is, on the whole, very interesting and well worth seeing." In tho Boston Daily Advertiser of September 25, we find this : Tho following letter has been re ceived from the Department of Foreign Affairs at the Hawaiian Islands, bearing date of September 10, 1883: Sir, I have to acknowledge the receipt of yours of 15th August. By this time, I make no doubt, your great exhibition has been successfully open ed. His Majesty the King has, with myself and my colleagues, taken a great interest in the enter prise, an interest which has leen shown not only in the effort made to secure a proper representa tion of Hawaii, but in the appointment of the special commissioners, the Hons. H. A. Pieroe and Dr. J. Mott Smith and Edward M. Brewer. The people of Boston may always feel sure that any thing they undertake will be watched with deep interest in this country, which owes so much to Boston men and women, and numbers in its pop ulation so many who aro closely connected with that city either by birth, parentage or early train ing. We always remember with pride that there is in Boston a Hawaiian Club, and that our island affairs are watched with interest by many among yon. With high regard, and wishing the exhibition every success, I have the honor to be sir, your most obedient servant, altee m. uibsox. Minister of Foreign Affairs." Tlie report of the Boston Daily Advertiser of 6th September of the dinner given by the Legislature to the Foreign Commissioners at tho Inhibition con tains the following notice of Hon. H. A. P, Car ter's speech (a fuller report of which we shall pub lish to-morrow) : "The Hawaiian Minister.the Hon. H.A. P.Carter, spoke for the foreign diplomatic corps. The re latious of the United States and Hawaii are more close, said Mr. Carter, than Zare the relations of the United States with any other foreign country Hawaii is an outpost of American civilization, standing alone in the far Pacific. The King of Hawaii had heard that Boston was the Athens of America. One day the King happened to remark to a newly-arrived American, Yoa aro from Bos- tout" Now this gentleman happened to be a New Yorker, and he responded rather ungraciously that ho never heard of Boston before ho came to Hono oluln, "But I thought you were an American," said the King, Hawaii should have Amerioan sympathy and support." One who was for some years a resident in this city is thus referred to in the same report: " The commissioner from Italy, Mr. Jarves was called upon next as representing, perhaps, more fully than any one else the foreign -arts, ne responded briefly, excusing himself from making a speech." To Purser Sutton of the S. 8. Alameda, our thanks are due for special f avora received. The whalers seem to have had rather a hard time of it in the Arctic during the past season.

This .7 - C7 is dishonest, said the merchant; 'men in the same business should make equal division of the profits, vet vou have taken more than the half of all I had' mournfully contemplating his remaining gold coin. ' What ! said the robber; ' have yon still somethiii'-r lef t ? He then refell upon tho poor merchant and took tha other piece. " Tlie Board of Supervisors recently gave to the Railroad Gang a franchise of the people's park The Mayor vetoed the grant, imprudently pointing out that it was for a term of twenty-five years; whereupon the Supervisors, perceiving their error, unanimously sustained the veto, and at once made a new grant for twice the original term. 9 "Moral of both Fables: Iu protesting against a wrong it is unwise to introduce too much matter." A local application of this excellent moral may not be untimely. Certain parties who are, or think themselves to le. interested in having tho Recipro city Treaty abrogated, aro trying to steal that val .... uable thing from us. Now in the recently pubiisiieu report of the Secretary of the Planters' Labor aud Supply Company is to be found tho following para graph: "About this time, certain Chinese rice planters interested in the success of the treaty onereu to place the sum of $5,000 iu the bauds of tho trustees as a contribution towards the general fund of the company, to be used at their discretion. The mat ter having been referred to a committee, it was af terwards decided by the trustees that this sum should not be accepted, and tho Chinese rice plant ers were informed that the Company had used and would continue to use every effort to uphold tho rice interest if, by so doing, the sugar interest would be endangered." So far as we are aware, none of our enemies have proposed to modify tho treaty. They go iu for taking it away from us altogether.. As for the rice question, it has never boeu raised among them, except in au incidental sort of way in con nection with the allegations about fraudulent im portations. It would bo absurd for the rice planters to ask the sugar planters to fight their battle for them, even if paid $5,000 to do so, in the event of the fate of the sugar men depending on the sacrifice of the rice men. But that event will never happen, unless the sugar planters bring it abjut themselves by talking about it. The less said about it or any other " concessions" the bet ter.

The New steamship Alameda was eagerly looked for at daylight Tuesday morning, but it wbb U o'clock before she was telephoned to be passing Cooo Head. As on the arrival of her sister ship, the "Mariposa," everyone who could afford the time, flocked to the wharf to witness her docking and to welcome her genial and well known com mander, H. G. Morse, also to ofiVr their congratu lations to the several passengers on their safe re turn to their Island home, and to extend a hand of greeting to the few visitors that she carried. Ou the vessel approaching the wharf, those whe are not skilled in the mysterieB of naval architecture expressed their surprise and wonder that two r?i- sels could be built so much alike, viz: the Mari posa and the Alameda. Tho trim of the new ar rival set her off to the best advantage, her draft of water being 14 feet forward and 17 feet aft. Im mediately on the gangway being connected with the wha.f there was a general rush on board and there it was found that the internal fit tings were duplicate . of the Mariposa. In fact everything looked the same with the exception of the new faces, and one very familiar and well known faoo on these Is lands, that of the portly oommander. For the better information of our readers we take pleasure iq publishing the following list of officers: Cap tain. H. O. Morse; Purser, J. B. Sutton; Surgeon, H. W. Faulkner, M. P.; 1st Officer, J. C. Haw thorne; 2d Officer, V, G. Luoas, Jr.! 3d Officer, W. H. Ferguson, Chief Eagiaeor, A, D. Little, 1st As sistant, D, C. Martin; 2d Assistant, G. W. Wood; 34 Assistant, H. Fletcher; Steward. C. Dexter. The average speed tf the Alameda ou her trip from Han Francisco waa 300 miles per day, it being deemed unnecessary to "press her" in order to "disturb the peace of night" in , Honolulu, more especially Sunday night. She arrived in particu larly fine order, a tone of remarkable cleanliness pervading in every department. In addition to a large freight of general merchandise, the Alameda brings a mainmast for the C. Sot hard Hulbort. Throughout the afternoon large numbers of people- continued their visits to the new arrival, with a hope that when it la their lot to go East, they will alwaya be enabled to give a preference to the "Flyera of the Pacifie." .
