The Kind's message, suggesting a reconsideration of the Appropriation Kill, and a general reduction, begin ning with himself, was a graceful and :i kingly act. It was spontaneous, emanating from the King not prompted by legislative discussion, r not yielding to factional inipor vmit'es. To those who ha ve doubted Ivaiakaua'.- allect .ion for the people. ii , i tii i i a : and who have boldly insinuated that so long as his own comfort was secured, he was indifferent to the State, it is a powerful and effective reproach. To those who have ever be lieved in the King's earnestness, in his anxiety to see this Kingdom a prosperous State ; it is a still greater assurance, though indeed no assur ance was necessary, that no indi vidual in this realm is more anxious tor its well-being none more willing to niake greater sacrifices to secure that end than His Majesty the King. He has sliameil his detractors the narrow-minded, snarling crew who saw in the King's powerlessness to meet them ou their own grounds,an op portunity for defamation and slander. He has linked his friends still closer to him, and though there could be no loom lor admiration of the gentle man, increased their respect and de votion to the King. To him belongs all the honor and praise which this unselfish deed has called forth. It has no connection with politics or party : it is the King's, and the nation thanks him, as the King, for this noble and timely consideration. AN APPETITE FOR BOOT VARNISH. Before Colonel iSpivckeU arrival i here, our intelligent ami consistent j contemporary, the Hawaiian, had a J very poor opinion of him indeed. He ; vras a schemer, a monopolist, a man j to be dreaded and execrated. In its j edition of July oth the Hawaiian as sures us that Colonel preekels en- terea into a conspiracy with the Cabinet and induced the Ministers to violate the Constitution. We quote from the Jfawaiian's arraignment ot Colonel tjpreckels: " If will be seen that on th I Al.ll Ot i October lSbo, a lease for :i0 vears of : all the (iovernment lands and water.- , . . . ,.,,11,...,. ... 14J hi i Ivuig between the valles oi i oioiu i , " . . ,,, , f.k t,.

And now the vast importance of his interests are recognized by the lla waiian, and verybody lilies him socially. Praise from s?ir Hubert .Stanley is praise indeed. We have no terms in which to express our disgust at this double faced policy, and we can only hope that t he piquancy of the varnish on Colonel Spreckels' boots will agree with the palate of our variable, in sincere, and hypocritical contempor ar v. ADVICE TO YOUNG MEN. Now that we have all wisely con cluded to go in for retrenchment, we i cannot make the beginning too soon. Young men in the business houses who may be addicted to " putting on style " should descend from their lofty perches, live within their incomes, and endeavor to satisfy their creditors. They will find pedestrian exercise, and plentv of it, is much more con ducive to health than tearing about in expresse.--, or straddling expensive ..orses. We hear ! :i.e other Ci.'.y of Otli 1 i rOITl Kllii VOIU1" OUlliess mail OIlc liomiin0 )uunn IHt-1IlL ,1,,UI ! whose saiarv was 7., a montn, ant whose bills for the quarter amounted ; plump mullet, what a delightful sub to S150, or 50 a month, allowing 2.", j ject it would be for a historical paint- a month for board, lodging, clothes, and tobacco. That rash person is a fine subject for the retrenchment bill ; but of course he did not exist on this $25 a month. Quite otherwise. He placed his tailor, bootmaker, boarding-house keeper, livery stable-keeper in loco parentis, and made them indi vidually and collectively contribute to his support. They were not aware that this tax had fallen upon their shoulders until they presented their bills, and discovered that tho funds had been so transferred from one appropriation to another that it was impossible to keep track of them. For example, the fluids to meet the tailor, boarding house, bootmaker, and stable-keeper, had all been turned into the beer fund in a most improper and unconstitutional manner. The result was, that the creditors passed a vote of want of confidence in the clerk, which was unanimously adopted. When young fellows fall into this habit of putting on style, except they have a good deal of ballast on board, thev arc in a bad way. They have a saying on the Coast that the path of the " blood " is hard, nnless his father be a millionaire, and a fool at the same time. A young man can have lots of fun in a quiet way, without making a splurge, running in debt, or inducing the girl whose admiration he wishes especially to attract, to believe thai he is a wild, luxurious spendthrift, to whom the purchase of silk dresses is just as simple as an investment in calicoes, Wo should like to see a few good rowing clubs .... . ... .1,.. aen.. l uci iiinuiiij, iui o,iiiLivy Prt to keep young men out mis- chief, and draw ofl that superabuud unce oi viia.uv VIilCIl is ;uias iiun- - gerous.

Curious to discover how pre cedent stands in these matters, we examined the records, rind tve find that in the Leui-datur of lS7S, a vote of want of coulideru-e in the Ministry o: that period was indefinitely post poned by a vote "f ayes to ) noes. Yet in the same same .session a reso lution of censure on the Ministry was ad-. pled !y a vote of I'-l ayes to 17 noes. In i.uth instances the Ministry vot-d. Pkack spread oer wings over ih. newspaper arena last evening, and we have now well grounded hopes of a journalistic millenium in this town, when there will be no more wrang- ling; but all shall dwell together in a ; spirit of brotherly love.

With the arrival of the Alameda to-day we shall learn who is the man who will head the Democratic Presi dential ticket. We suspect Cleveland will get it, for we cannot believe that Ihitler would be accepted under any circumstances. Thurman would be a strong man, though all the energy of the corporatians would be united to beat him, but the weightiest of all would be the sage of Granmisry Park, if Mr. Tilden could be prevailed on, even at the last moment, to make the running. CORRESPONDENCE. We do not hold ourselves responsible for the tatements made, or opinions expressed by our correspondents. Iorlu;;-ncse Immigration. Mr.. Editou Dear Sir: As the editor ot the Planters' Monthly and some prominent white members of the Legislature have ex pressed the opinion that the importation of Portuguese should be discontinued, the public is in danger of being misled into the belief that the planters are of the same opinion. I am very certain that the ma jority of the planters are not. and that they would regard a suspension of Portuguese immigration as a grave misfortune. Plant ing operations, though in the main profit able, havo been for years p:st sadly im peded by the scarcity and uncertainty of the labor supply. This uncertainty has been mainly caused by the disjointed and spasmodic arrange ments of tho Government in regard to im migration. One year v.-e are led to expect a permanent supply from the South Sea Islands. A few people come thence, and as soon as we had got into the way of working thes.e,thescherne was abandoned. Then come Chinese in ship loads! Wages go down and our spirits rise. Immediately, however, the further introduction of Celestials is tabod. Up go tho wages again, and wo are once more dejected. Then Portuguese immigra tion sets in. We are promised thousands of them, but just we have overcome the dilVicultics alway.s to be encountered on the introduction of a new nationality, the Gov ernment concludes they are too expensive ami the supply is interrupted. Then come the iHt tchuu n from firemen. Kager for any kind of laborers, we receive them with ojei: arms. Ala.-l Our hair soon begin.- to turn gray, we are n the verge of iii-j .luuut.i uiuui o.i iciiii uiii.e hi .i ! reumotloii of l'ortugue-e immigration on ! more favorable terms than btfore. j Now we are promised Japanese, and are rlid to welcome a clus of labor so favorablv known. iut wn hould Portu.-cuese be discontinued.' Their tirst the men a. re is l.igu. ana to wages ol j hiih- out taumg the average ! Co-: th labor pet formed by the men, women and children, they are cheaper than j any other- clas now here. From the City ! of Paris it was my good lortune to get 11 families. The average wages of the 11 men are OS cents per head per day: to this must be added, sav 15 cents per day for .tirst cost, interest on same. etc., that makes the men cost cents per day. Too costly, no doubt. Fiut bo- sides the men we have an average of 2'J women, girh and boys, doing gool work. 7Al.

Kfcene pays the duties on the trophy, which is valued in England nt SoOOO. The cup would come under the section of the Tariff Act relating to manufactures of metals, and would have to pay 15 per cent ad valorem duty, amounting to $2"2o0. The cup was imported over a year ago by Mr. Keene, and has since been in public stores. It is constructed of solid gold, and weighs about nine pounds troy weight. The gold alone is wurth over 1G0). Mr. Keene will refuse to pay tho duties on the day of sale, and will probable send the cup back to England, lie says that if the Americans cannot afford to admit free of duty a prize won in England by an Ameri can horse, he can afford to send it back. The wrestling match between Joseph Acton andMatsacla, the Japanese wrestler, was won by the former. The first two bouts, catch-as-catch-can, were won by Acton. Sorakiehi then won two falls Japanese style, and the fifth and last bout, Graco-Iionian, was won by Acton. The purse was $1000. A JaraII. (FKOM THE GOSSIP ACCORUINO TO L UN II A.) And it came to pas that a certain rich man of 'Frisco, who for his many talents of silver that he desired to garner and multiply in a bank, was denounced as a Son of Belial by certain Sad-you-sces and .Soreheads, went into their city of Lulu, and there lie had diverse dealings with them, taking from their hands the sweetness of the land (which otherwise they could not dispose of except a long way off, and on long time), and he gave unto them great ease and comfort in their basket and their store. Nov.- it hap pened that a master among the Soreheads stood up in their midst, and giving voice to the gladness of his trib';, saith unto the rich man of 'Frisco: "Oh: Son of Cash! if thou will be perfect, only one thingthou lackest that prevents our taking th'-o into our fold, and unto w:r bosom. Give up Gibson and follow ami thou -halt have stock in the kingdom of the Cousin.-." And when the Son of Cash heard the' saying, ho went away sorrowful ior -wore, as a Son of Ik-lial hath testified.', saying that he would see them d ;irst. Then -aid the- Master unto the Soreheads : Verily I say unto you. it is easier for a Campbell to enter t he narrow circle of the Fort street ciiuue than for this Sou of Ca-h to enter tho kingdom of the Cousins."
