They (the whiners) propose to hold the j
Government "strictly responsible," for
laws passed by the Legislature, many
years before aay one, connected with the
present administration, had any part in
the government of the country, and con-
tinned on the statute book by successive '
Legislatures, from a conviction of their
public utility. If a man takes a fever at
"Waialua. the Ministry are responsible. If
another commits suicide on the other side
of the town, the Ministry are responsible.
If some men get into an excitement on
Hawaii, and one is killed, the Ministry
must be held responsible before the people.
This reminds one of an incident at Salt
Lake City, where there was a crowd gath
ered, a short time since, when suddenly
tome one drew a pistol, fired at, and killed
another, then springing out of the crowd ;
elnded tbe pursuit which was immediately
started for him, whereupon a wag cried
out, " Charge it to Brigham, charge it to
Brigbam." The idea was that " Brigham"
was to be held strictly responsible for
every thing which, might occur in that
community, except benefits and they
were to be held as having occurred not
through him, bat in spite of him, " in
spite of the hundred and one obstacles
thrown is the way of their prosperity."
So likewise, if a jedge, on dse examina-
tion. ar after taking testimony, as by
statute provided, concludes to discharge a
man. wbo had previously been committed
to the asylum for the insane, tha Ministry
i is responsible for it, particularly if the
I man, subsequently, further develops synip

it. So Iiktmix-, if the ln.roor of Oahu

ence, who makes this priestly fling, at
what he wishes to make people believe is
the influence of other priests, knew at the
i time tha'. the article was published, that
; no priest has any mora individual influence
, over the Ministry, either individually or col
lectively, than he has himself, und it must
be confessed that is marvelouilv small, it is
sacrilege even to intimate that the state
ments, insinuations and deductions, sanc
tioned in the columns ot an " Independent
Hawaiian paper," are devoid of truth and
common sense, and why ! Because the edi
tor thereof is "acting Pastor of the Fort
Street Church," and acts, too, "to the

Me. Editor : There is not the slight
est doubt but that, should a sufficient
subsidv be offered, the North Pacific
Steamship Company and many other res
ponsible parties would engage to put
on a suitable steamer to run between the
tsUnds, and to make trips, which for
speed, promptness and length, would satis
fy any one. The only question seems
t0 wfcat maT be considered a sufficient
subsidy! According to some showing,
a proper subsidy would be about S4.0.000
per year. I come to this conclusion from
the statement that the KiUxuea has cost,
to run her, S2.",000 per year more than
she has earned ; and it being reasonable
to suppose that she has been economically
run, and has earned as much as a steamer,
running on the same route, can be ex
pected to earn, for some time to come ;
it will be necessary for the Government
to guarantee not only a sufficient subsidy
sibIj. that the Companr wouId at
some time desire to withdraw a vessel
from the trade, when, if she bad been
placed under the Hawaiian flag, she could
not again enter the American coasting

they insist that there are men in the

may become directors of Mis steamship

the powerful corporation in question, to
oar detriment. In fact, these old fogies I ported laborers, tbey should be Polynesians,

not wise to be carried away by the high
sounding prospectus of any foreign, would

them send their steamers all over tbe
Pacific ; let them call here, and we will !
treat them well ; we will give them every

to prove that he was at one time In favor of

that in view, we closed tbe article with the

Now, tbe oltener I read bis assertion, that
the article In question was " w rltten in favor
of the superiority of European Immigrants,"
or " maintaining that whatever efforts were
made should include tbe latter," the more I
I am astonished ; because. If tbe article was
written for that purpose, it proves that at
least, before his views had become "more
matured," he must have been a most
"unprincipled and unscrupulous" dema
gogue. Listen to what this lover of tbe
Hawaiian people, whose Wood bolls with
Indignation at the very Intimation that he
Is disloyal to his Sovereign, says In this same
article, previous to his remarks on European
immigration, and tell us if It looks like an
argument or a preface to an argument in
favor of such a measure :
" We cannot consider the question but as
one not a little embarrassing to the govern
ment, as tbe matter ot race goes for a great
deal in the ultimate solution of this pro-
blem ; for, should an alien people be Intro-

Would any one believe that any man would
be willing to stultify himself with the asser

lavor the Introduction of a race, which of
all others even his "unmatured" under
standing must have felt wonld have accele
rated tbe approach of that time, when tbe
" Kamehameha dynasty may be lelt alone,

It be believed that he wonld have the cool
effrontry, now to avow that he was advocat
ing a measure, which would " unite (strike
perhaps) with paralysis, the little vigor left in
this decaying people !" Xo Jlr. Editor, d"o
not let us, fora moment, believe that your
friend Is as bad as be would have us believe.
In fact, we have proof to the contrary; for
on tbe 23d of December of the same year, be
tells ns distinctly, that if we are to have Im-
x no nut prcicnu w say, such is uis
present opinion, for nothing is more likely
than that bis opinions in a state of " matu-
rity" should differ from those of his chaotic
Immaturity. Bat let us return to your
friend's article, of the 25th of February, 1S63,
and see if possible, who Is guilty of having
garbled" it. Iu fact, I think In thla article
, we shall find, who has done all the garbling
and dodging the question, In this discussion.
I Tbe Editor says besides what has already
been quoted, that there was a want of labor
that the law was amply sufficient to provide
for It that it bad not transpired what course
the Government would pursue In the matter,
except that It bad determined "to keep tbe
thing In IU own hands, Instead of leaving It
to Individual enterprise." That no large
choice for the selection of Immigrants was
then open; among them, were "Chinese
coolies, Indian coolies or Lascars, Polyne
sian Islanders, and Europeans." i'oir, let
cs see what he aayi of the Chinese In this
same article :
"Chinese coolies have already reached
these shorts, but we fancy an unfavorable
tlons. which the native of these Islands
would spurn with contempt
tVe should not, however, place too much
weight upon his remarks In regard to the
"1SJ3 coolies," because the epithets he
heaps upon them are " mild" ln comparison
with what he Is accustomed to use towards
our most respected citizens. Xorshould we
wonder that he was base enough, at that time,
to suggest that that Industrious and much to
be admired people, could be procured upon
terms which a native of these Islands would
"spuru with contempt," because you know
bis opinions on the labor question were not
at that time "matured." and be had not then
become elevated to the dignity of a " phi
lanthropist and a Chrlstlauj" but was "ln
the gall of bitterness, and bond of In
iquity." After carefully reading the article in
question, I have come to the conclusion that
It is nof an argument in favor of auy one
thing In particular, but rather a hopeless
"sloshing round" or an exceedingly "un
matured" mind, after something to say on a
very important subject, which It was and is,
pcrrectly incapable or comprehending. That
the " Instincts" or the writer were evident
ly In favor of Chinese Immigration. Is to be
presumed from what be says In this article,
as well as from the satisfaction he expressed
upon the arrival of the tlrst " lot or Govern
ment coolies." Wituess his remarks upon the
Immigrants who arrived lu the Mtrto; they
are really coniof, and do not at all agree with
a subsequent statement of tbe same authori
ty, to the effect that these " coolies" were the
most miserable, squalid and sickly set of
vagabonds who ever came Into the country:
Arrival of Coolies. The Chilean bark
Alberto arrived on Saturday last with the
tlrst lot of coolies selected by the agent or
the Board of Immigration, Ur. W. Hllle
bnind. This lot uuuibcrs -SO, of which 43
are women. Tbev were landed on Tuesday
last and quartered ln the premises formerly
occupied by A. Harris & Co., on the Espla
nade. A large proportlou have already been
delivered. The coutractsm.de with them
are for five years, at a monthly pay of four
dollars, and" a bonus of two dollars to be
given them ou the Chinese New Year's day.
They are to clotbc themselves, but In cases
of sickness they arc to be cared for at their
dursctnent. Tbe sum ot ten dollars has
alreadv been paid for three hundred and for
ty, aud new engagements are being made
dally since the first arrival. This lot were
all selected from the Canton provinces, and
there has been but little sickness among
them, but one death having taken place.
The British bark Hoscoe may be looked for
in a fortnight with the second lot of 270.
P. C. A., Ser. SO, 'C5.
I flatter myself that from these quotations
and remarks, It will be seen that if there has
been any "garbling" and "misrepresenta
tion" of the Adrertix r" article, it Las been
done by the Editor of the Advertiser himself.
In regard to the Law ; although your cor
respondent knows what It is, he Is quite
sure that be had nothing whatever, to do
with its passage, nor does he remember of
taking part In the passage of any other law.
He asserts thongb, that the action of the
Board of Immigration has been perfectly
legal throughout, and will say, that he has
the high authority of the Jfw(Icr for stat
ing that it Is so. He Insists that be has the
same high authority for stating. In addition,
that tbe action uf tbe Board of Immigration
has been wise, and In nothing more has Its
action been wise and just, than tbe expedi
tion recently fitted out, to procure Immi
grants from tbe Polynesian Islands, about
which, the present discussion, If yonr cor
respondent Is not mistaken, first arose.
I do not ask nor expect any apology from
tbe Editor of the Advertiser lor Ail part of
the " misrepresentation," because I believe
although lie is scroti?, and that bis course is
dangerously bnrtfnl to the prosperity of
every Interest of this country that in his
own narrow minded way, he never would
acknowledge tbe wrong. There is a class
of people lu tbe world, nbo are so bigoted, j
so puffed up, with self esteem so obstinate I
and withal, so narrow minded as to believe j
that all who disagree with them, do so from ;
the worst motives. They arc always "ma
turing" and never "matured." Everchang- j
Ing and always wrong. They prate of tol- i
eration, when tbey themselves are most I
Intolerant Tbey harp upon their phllan-1
thropy and charity, though they have not a i
sparK ot unman sympatny in their souls.
Fanatical and unreasoning, bigoted and per
verse, they take It upon themselves to be The
Irople, and violently denounce all who will
not be led by them. Constantly barplngupon
"Progress" and the "Spirit of the age,"
they are themselves the vestiges of the dark
and superstitions ages of the past. From
such people, I do nut expect apologies for
the past, nor dispassionate treatment in the
A FBIEXD OF THE ProPLE.
Mb. Euitob : It was with sincere regret that
I read in the last Adetrtiser, an extract from a
letter from the Honolulu correspondent of the
San Francisco Herald. I do not know who
the writer is, bnt it seems to me that his
statements are adapted to convey to the stran
ger abroad, and unacquainted with the real
state of things here, erroneous ideas of tho
facts, and injurious to the good name of the
Islands, and of individuals.
The writer, if he knows anythtng at all,
knows well enough that there is here no inch
system as that which the language ' forced
Coolie servitude" conveys the idea of, to an
American or English mind, an idea of cruelty
and abuses, and semi-slavery, such as existed
when the business of supplying laborers from
India and China was in the hands of private
parties, and in view of which the British Gov
ernment felt itself constrained, in the interests
of humanity, to interfere, and appoint agents
in India and China, and in its own Colonies,
to see, as far as possible, that no laborer should
enter into a contract for foreign service with
out a fall understanding of what he was ex
pected to do, and also of his own free and
voluntary choice, and to see that his tmployer
fulfilled his part of tbe stipulation iu the spirit
of justice and right. It does not seem possi
ble for hint not to know that there Is not one
I member of the Oovernintnt who favors any
j such system, and that the Emigration Board
i was established In JfM for tho express purpose
of preventing any such abuses as had arisen
In tho past, and must be expected to arise In
the future, if left to private enterprise. Ho
must also know that the law guards as rigidly
tho rights of the employed as those of the em
ployer: that it makes all cruel and abusi'0
conduct on the part of the employer towards
the laborer, pun!hable, and that if such abuse
sometimes occurs it is In spite of the law. Ho
must know that every immigrant laborer, able
to read, could also be a voter. If he chose to
become a subject, because his regular employ
ment brings to him, including his board and
lodging, moro than seventy-five dollars per
year. Ho must know that the Government
has used every precaution possible to see that
every laborer brought here under its auspices
has understood his contract, and entered Into It
of his own choice, and aimed to see its fair and
just fulfillment here. There is no such system
in existence here as the writer's language in
dicates, and if ho t really a resident of the
country of any length of time, he must havo
known it; and such statements If they havo
any influence abroad, tend only to do Injury
to the country that protects him.
The expedition of the J(ana ioa was fitted
oat on tho principlo before stated, to isvitk
emigrants to come here to settle, under con
tracts at first, and to explain, if possible, what
was desired of them. 2"o " forced Coolie
servitude" was contemplated, or desired, or
would be permitted. If they come. It must
If the Government favored a system of
Coolie servitude, would it have sought the
services, first of all, of the Rev. J. W. Smith,
JI. D., as its agent to conduct an enterprise
conceived in oppression and wrong a man,
who, for nearly twenty- seven years, as a Mis
sionary, has preached tho Gospel to this peo
ple, and as a physiciiua has administered to
their physical wants? Failing in this, would
it have sought Mr. Chamberlaui's services,
and accepted his conditions of nominating his
own Captain, who declined for personal rea
sons T Also, w ould it have sought the services,
in such a cause, of C. T. Gulick? Would it
have uamcd to me the Rev. H. Bingham,
whose health, I felt obi iced to say to the Board
of Immigratiou, was poor, and not equal to
the responsibility of the work? Would it have
sought such men to do an evil work, unless it
sought to defeat Its l'.sn object? Tbe ques
tion answers itself, Xo. Its duty was to carry
out legislative action, and it aimed to do it in
a way as honorablo as upright, and with as
much consideration for the rights of others as
tho most devoted advoi'iitca of human freedom
Again : The writer sa;;s tho Board declined
to take the AuYcrfiserand A'uoiiM. Is is true
that it declined to tako certain copies of those
papers, in which ground was taken calculated
to defeat the enterprise. If, after tho discussion
of the subject, the Mia isters or the Board of
Immigration still thought it their duty to obey
the Legislature and send the expedition, they
certainly could not, with any propriety, carry
papers whose only tendency would be to de
feat it. They offered to carry any letters,
papers, parcels, freight, or Missionary passen
gers free of ciurye, or, in short, to do any
thing they could do, to accommodate, which
would not injure the enterprise. Why spend
time, strength, and money to get up an expe
dition for a special objec t.and then takealoug
with It. instruments aJir4oted and designed to
defeat it? To havo done this, would have
been to be false to the trust committed to their
hands by the Legislature.
Mr. Editor. I deprecate such remarks going
abroad. As I see thinc.s, they give utterly
false ideas of the true state of facts, and so
far a they exert an influence, it must be to
our injury. I have written what I have with
great reluctance, but under the imperative
sense of duty. It is my desire to see every
interest of humanity zealously guarded,, but to
send statements abroad, in jnrious to a people
and individuals, unless tl tey are true, is sub
versive of humanity and .right It is "scat
tering firebrands, arrows and death."
Respectfully Yours, S au'l X. Custle.
Mk. Editok. I put myself much out of
my usual way, in writing anything for the
newspapers. But having observed that tho
purchaser of Puffcndorf Is nnder tho Impres
sion that tbe .Ministers are jealous that he
has become the possessor of a book " which
neither love nor money can procure In Eng
land," and that It Is a rare referenee book. It
occurred to ma to remark, that the pangs of
jealousy may well be assuaged witu the
knowledge that there Is a copy of Puffcndorf
la the Government Law-Library; that thongb
It Is a valuable book of reference, it Is by no
means, a rare one, being foi sale by almost
any law book seller, aud that old editions of
law books are not considered In comparison
with the latest, ir I were about to enquire
for law books such as Kent, Wbeaton, or
Puffendorf, I should look to tbe title page,
with reference to getting tbe latest, not tbe
earliest edition. If " neither love nor money
can procure" the precious volume In Eng
land, how did it get out here, to be sold for
seven dollars and a half?
