Thk foreign Dews presents several points
of interest as we glance over the progress
of events.
The political contest over the election
of a new President of the United States
is already absorbing general attention, and
displacing many other topics of interest
in less excitinsr times. The candidates of
the two great parties are nominated, and
the victory is already conceded in advance
to the Republican nominees.
The President, with the termination of
his office in full view, has proposed several
amendments to the Constitution in the
modes of electing the Chief Magistrate
his tenure of office, and ineligibility for re
election. The ideas involved in these
amendments .have for many years been
supported by tboujrhtfal and moderate
Americans, as a cure for the evils which
now flow from the modes of election, bat
that they will be engrafted in the Consti
tution" is extremely improbable.
The Parliament of England has been
prorogued, and the Disraeli Ministry re
main in power. An immediate dissolu
tion is probable, so that the elections may
held under the provisions of the Reform
Bill, and the sense of the new constituen
cies may be had on the political question
of the day before Parliament assembles,
in December.
The Queen has started on her proposed
continental trip, and at last accounts was
in Paris. She will visit Switzerland, and
be absent ecme weeks from England.
A revolution has occurred at Panama,
where the inhabitants found a new govern
ment, that of General Ponce, established
during the night without noise or blood
shed. In the elections the Liberals had
gained a victory only to find their triumph
annulled by a coup d'etat of the party in
office. No military opposition has been
raised against the new government, so that
it will quietly enjoy the fruits of its bold
nels and retain its hold upon the reins of
The first step of the new policy of China
has been successful. A treaty has been
concluded with the United States, which
wilt place the trade and intercourse of the
two countries on a more favorable basis
than hitherto. The ports of China are
made free to the commerce of the United
States, and all restrictions upon its citizens
for residing, travelling and engaging- in
trade, in any part of the country, are re
moved. They may also engage in the
coasting and liver navigation, and may
organize trade so as to buy directly from
the producer. Chinese in the United
States'are to receive protection of their
rights, have facilities of trade, may become
naturalized citizens and the United States
pledges itself, in connection with other
powers, to sustain what is known in China
as the co-operative policy. Mr. Burlin
game and the Embassy will proceed to
Europe in September, and the tone of the
English press indicates that a similar treaty
will meet with the favor of their govern
ment. The Suez Canal, it is now conceded,
will bo a success. M. Lessen has strug
"gled on through natural obstacles, and the
still more difficult ones of financial dis
trust, until the shares of his company find
ready sale upon the market- By reason of
assured success of the canal all the
shares, the last telegrams state, are taken
The saccess at Suez has drawn attention
again to Darien, and the possibility of a
canal through that isthmus. On one of
the proposed lines only 39 miles of cutting
is required to connect streams which
empty into the respective oceans. This
narrow, strip whatever may be the difficul
ties in its way, will be overcome whenever
ibis "thought Ibit' the canal will paj, and
is necessary to commerce-
Away in the Straits of Magellan there
is a stir of improvement and enterprise.
The Chilean Government has granted a
franchise to a company to run steam lugs
through the Straits, and establish there
the business of towing sailing vessels.
The government also are making liberal
offers to immigrants to settle in the Terri
tory of Magellan, not only givmg to the
settlers land, but providing even a part
of the passage money to steamers that
carry them.
The Pope has called a' general council
of the Roman Catholic Church to meet in
Borne, in December, 1E69. There has not
been such a council convened since that
of Trent, in 1545. All the religious world
will watch with profound interest the de
liberations and utterances of the council

Cuurcb, on doctrine and practice.
"The Aim California."
The Alia California probably prides
itself upon being a highly respectable
newspaper, the pink of propriety in jour
nalism, and the leader of good taste in the
quality and style of its articles. In its
own city and amoDg its own people, where
an offended public decency wculd tell upon
its profits, we presume the lack of editorial
discrimination in the admission of execra
ble articlespainted falsehoods, and vile
scandals, would soon be corrected, by
considerations brought to its notice in
tangible shape, and the gentlemanly in
stinct which ought to rule in the editorial
room, would soon be cultivated with an
assiduity refreshing to behold.
By what canon of taste ,lhe Alia can
stain its columns with such indecent letters
as its Hawaiian correspondents frequently
send, including " Sneezer" and " Ebenezer
Snickers," el id omnes genus, we are at
a loss to know, unless its editors believe
that all the twaddle, libels, and under-cur
rent scandal, picked up by its own and
specials" on these islands, are literary
gems of the first water. It is easy to cal
culate how the Attn would fall into quick
disrepute, if pursuing a similar treatment
of private parties in its own city, and pub
lic matters, it should publish the bar-room
talk and vulgar slanders picked up by a
silly itemizer in the purlieus of San Fran
cisco. We ore not surprised that ita correspon
dent, of the weekly of the 18th,-naively
say3, "I have more of the same sort to
send when properly axked!" cooked it
must be in order to suit the elegant taste
of the editors, to be given as interesting
matter to its readers.
Verily the Alta's correspondants are a
precious lot, or it may be that they cun
ningly know what sort of letters on Ha
waiian affairs will suit the Alia ; their idle
tales serving purposes not to be gained by
giving correct information, unvarnished
truth, and reliable facts. We pity its sub
scribers, so grossly treated with chaff in
stead of grain the Alia aims at being
Hun nllnii History, ly Ha
yyiiiiaas. The early history of all nations without a
literature. Is necessarily traditionary. That
of the Hawalians, previous to the advent of
the missionaries, Is of course derivable from
the traditions handed down from father to
son, of those families Immediately attendant
upon the chiefs, known by the term otiahiu
literally, body attendants. These body ser
vants constituted a class of themselves, and
it was their province cot only to wait on the
chiefs personally, but to carefully commit to
memory and to transmit to their successors,
everything connected with the birth and line
age of their lords quite after the style of
the bards and harpers of olden times In Brit
aln. On festive occasions, for the trratifica-
tlon of the chiefs or the amusement of the
guests, these melet'ia they were called ryth
mical chants were recited by the bards, and
thus became perpetuated from one genera
tion to another, the deeds and adventures of
the chiefs. Many of these mela, when prun
ed of the impurities so natural to an uncivil
ized people, are found to be highly poetical,
and are particularly valuable as presenting
the only medium ot ascertaining anything in
regard to HawaiUn history previous to what
we may term the conquest the conquest of
civilization over barbarism. Bat civilization,
with all its benefits, has not preserved the
nation. While. It gave them letters and en
lightened institutions of government, and
the religion of the Bible wa made to take
the place of the old heathen worship, the
people were taught to regard all ancient ens- j
toms and habits as antagonistic to the new
order of things, and to be discouraged and
frowned upon. The melts, those sole records
of the history of the race, were proscribed
and stigmatized as idle remnants of barbar
ism. So they fell Into disuse, wereforgotten,
oronlyrecitedinsecretbytheiaAtu. Among
the many donbtless fabolons statements of
these ancient compositions, there were un
questionably some grains of truth, which If
preserved might have rescued from oblivion
many Interesting circumstances to be woven
into the yet unwritten history of this Inter
esting people. It Is mnch to be regretted
that the early Christian teachers did cot, in
stead of discouraging, by ignoring If not in
terdicting these mtla, at least have had them
written down for preservation and subse
quent translation. Recently, that venerable
Hawaiian scholar and Ethnologist, the Rev.
Lorrin Andrews, commenced the work of
translating and rendering into English, some
of the most interesting of these ancient
poems, in which work he was assisted by
Mr. Samuel M. Kamakau, formerly a member
of the Legislature, and among the earlier
graduate of Lahalnaluna Seminary. Unfor
tunately, after the work bad been begun and
wa3 fairly procresslng. Mr. Andrews' failinir
evestrht compelled him to abandon it. and
it no w seems questionable whether any com
petent person with sufficient leisure at com
mand can be found to complete the under
takings In the native newspaper, the Kuoloa, Mr.
Kamakau has published daring the last two
yean in a series of numbers, sketches of the
history of the Kamebaraeba family, which
contain many Interesting particulars and In
cidents cot included- in any history hereto
fore published. Some of these we propose to
reproduce in English In the columns of

with the Government whereby they bind
themselves to run two steamers regularly in
consideration of free wharfage, water, and
other privileges, such as were formerly con
ceded, to the Pacific Mall Company. The
line will be extended to Tahiti, whenever a
fair prospect of success apiears.
A few days after the arrival of the Idaho
in San Francisco, the Montana will be dis-
5atched, to be followed In due time by the
iaho. The time-table will be made up so
that a steamer will leave San Francisco every
third Wednesday, arriving here on a Mon
day, and leave Honolulu the following Sat
urday, thus securing a most desirable regu
larity. '

The rUtljirocltjr Treaty
From the tcnorof your newspaper articles
and private correspondence, I infer that no
subject at present mooted, la pregnant with
half so much Interest to your people as the
fate of the Reciprocity Treaty. I am sorry
to be the medium of couveylng to you bad
news on this head, but tbe necessltv so or
dains it, and I simply comply with a disagree
able duty of my vocation. Congress ad
journed without ratifying the Treaty, and
unless some strong pressure can be brought
to bear upon its members, when tbat body
re-assemoies, uvoraoie to us endorsement,
there is scarcely a doubt of its defeat. We
have intelligence from 'Washington to the
effect (that a protracted discussion of the
merits and demerits of the Treaty occurred
in executive session of tbe Senate on the
24th of July. A correspondent, speaking of
mat event, says:
" The main objection to the Treaty was Its
reciprocity nature. Although there was a
considerable Influence In favor of the treaty

The Chicago' Ibtt has an article on the

Sir. Fessenden's opposition to the Sand'

the ground that the importation of rice,

son of the indisposition of the people to
work, is one thing; but reciprocity with
Cuba, having (ho power to give us all the
sugar wu can take, Is another. Tho treaty
will not be ratified.
Perhaps a change of opinion will take place
in the minds of Congressmen when they
again come together. In order to induce
that change the King's Government should
leave no effort untried. An active and Intel

The Sixth Industrial Fair of the Mechanic's
Institute opened for the first time on Satur
day night Not more than one-third of the
exhibitois have plaeed their goods, and yet
me scene was exceedingly orlillant the
Pavilion, located on Union Square, and occu
pying almost its entire extent, is oblong in
shape, 2S8 feet long by 160 feet wide, with a
transverse section at the west end, 205 feet
in width, for an Art Gallery. A spacious
gallery traverses the entire structure at a
height of 22 feet from, the floor, used as a
promenade, and from which the bird's-eye
view is dazzling and beautiful. Tbe whole
is lit at night by about 1.200 gas lets, and a
band of music performs during the hours of
afternoon aud evening. In the middle of
tbe bonding Is a fountain, with a circle of
nearly a hundred 'small jets, casting their
watery tribute towards ,a common centre,
from which proceeds a larger volume, rising
to the height of 20 or CO feet, as desired, and
falling in a shower of spray into the marble
tank beneath. At either end of tbe basin Is
also a water jet, emitting a volume only less
in dimensions man mat oi me centre the
whole constituting a most refreshing and at
tractive feature of the Fair; whlcb, I now

ever held In this city. It will prove worthy
of a visit even from the Hawaiian Islands :
and I promise yon, Mr. Editor, If yon will
come over to see it, your 'hat shall be

be safe to say that the number falls within
three hundred. There have probably been a
thousand cases of it, in alL No panic exists
in consequence of its presence, although tbe
parents of tbe poorer classes of children are
having their little ones vaccinated in tbe
City Health Office, and otherwise, as rapidly
as possible. As yet, I bare heard of no in
