Since tbe New England whaleships
bare dwuged iLeir whaling grounds from
tbe South Atlantic and Indian oceans to
thetorth Pacific, they have made these
Islands tive principal depot for recruits,
enppUes and for procuring seamen for
tbe ardaous and perilous "seasons" North.
Daring this time thousands of Ilawaiians
have Won employed in the business, and
hare wtiferwly been found to be equal, if
not swperier, to any other class of seamen
for tbe jreeatiar business of whaling.
Fully as intelligent and as capable of
withstanding the hardships to which all
are subjected wlw engage in the-business,
their tractability and willingness to per
form their duties on the voyage, render
Uses favorites with many of the most ex
perienced and successful whaling masters,
-wb wtuld cbco'C, if possible, to have all
titeir foremast bauds Ilawaiians. It has
"become a matter of serious doubt with
aMNV, who have the interests of the Ha
vraitan people at heart, whether the policy
tit permitting Ilawaiians to leave the
country ou foreign ships is a sound one,
instiHHoh as the decrease' in the popula
tion of these Lslauds renders it more im
portant, from year to year, that every
able bodied and industrious man should,
if possible, bo retained at home. Those
vbo slrip on whalers are certainly the
aost industrious and enterprising of the
people, and although, as is argued on the
other hand, they may be the means of
bringing much wealth into the country, it
is questionable whether they now add as
laeeh to its general prosperity as they
wohW if they could bo induced to apply
tbeir?nergey and industry in producing
at heme. There are strong and reason
able arguments on both sides of this ques
tion. For the population of Hawaii to
-stand the steady strain upon the most
rateable of the population, caused by the
shipping of so many on whaleships, is
jHore than can justly be demauded as a
ribt even if it be In- those whose trade
has done so much for the prosperity of
tbe country. On the other hand, to throw
obstaoies in the way ol their procuring
men, would certaiuly take away from the
whalemen one of the principal induce
raeaU which bring them once or twice a
vear to our harbors for recruits; and
wodti do more than any thing else to in
duce them to seek new ports of supply.
So iar as any material benefit accruing
to those Ilawaiians who ship on board of
-whalers, it can hardly be said to be much.
We have never heard of any of them be
coming enriched in the business, or of en
riching their friends. To the prodigality
and improvidence of seamen, they add
that which is natural to their Tace; and,
as a consequence, no one, except perhaps
a few traders and shopkeepers, is in the
slightest degree benefitted by the hun
dreds of Hawaiian seamen who annuals
leave their homes to ship on the whal
ers. The only benefit derived from thfcir
engaging themselves on foreign vessels, for
a "season" or a Tear 's that s an 'n
daccment for those foreign vessels to visit
our ports. The question-, therefore, is
.are the benefits derived, on account of the
ifecilities of procuring men here, equiva
lent to the loss of the services of four or
WaUgka .
Jaatawae , ' ., ......
five hundred of our best men to our home
production or our own commerce? This
is a question upon which it would be well
to ponder. One thing is certain, if they
are permitted to ship on foreign vessels, it
is incumbent upon "those who have the
supervision 0 the shipment and the dis
charge of Hawaiian seamen here, to take
care that they arc fairly dealt with ; that
the articles of clothing and other things
furnished them during the voyage are not
exhorbitantly charged, and that they are
protected from maltreatment at the hands
of those under whom ther serve.
Italic .lltisic.
Some months since, 3Ir. Northcotc,
whose abilities as a musician are now fa
vorably known in our community, was
engaged to organize and instruct a Mili
tary Band. A number of Hawaiian youth
were placed under his care, from whom
to make selections, after they should have
shown by some-practice upon the instru
ments, that they had the inclination as
well as the talent to become good per
formers. Sufficient progress has been
made to indicate that the material for a
good Band is in hand, and last week,
therefore, the organization was perfected
by the enlistment of twelve permanent
members. These will be increased as op
portunity offers, until the Band blaster
shall have obtained his full quota of mem
bers. They drill regularly every day,
and are makiug such progress that we
may soon expect to hear them outside of
their drill-room.
At the last session of the Legislative
Assembly, it was determined to devote a
portion of the Military Appropriation to
the forming and maintaining of a Band.
It was believed that a sufficient number
of Ilawaiians might be brought together,
who, under a course of instruction by a
competent master, and the conditions of a
long engagement for thw service, could be
educated up to the creditable performance
of the best music, and, at the same time,
supply a deficiency that has" long existed
on militar- and civic occasions, when band
music is required.
A Band in Honolulu, as a convenience
on private occasions, and as a means of
enjoyment to the public at large, can be
easily appreciated, the more so, by the
remembrance of the out-door concerts that
have of late been given by the Bands
attached to war-ships that have visited
this port.
The Band of Kamchameha III, whose
performances at the levees at the Palace,
and on other occasions, have ,nov nearly
passed out of public remembrance, has
entirely disappeared, not more than two
members we believe being at present
alive; the leader Mr. Mersbcrg, is living
on Hawaii, where he is now engaged in
instructing a volunteer Band of twelve
instruments, with very great credit to
himself as band-master; the other. Patili,
is attached to the troops as bugler, and
is also employed as teacher of music in
in the common schools.
Since the dissolution of this Band, how
ever, the Ilawaiians have made considera
ble progress in the knowledge of music,
and Its practice, both vocal and instru
mental. Choir singing, and the render
ing of church music especially, has greatly
improved over that -ot old times, so that
now, throughout the rural districts, may
be heard in the churches, siuging that
would have been esteemed very creditable
in the sea-ports twenty years ago.
How great the improvement has been,
may be seen in the music regularly per
formed by the Choirs attached to the
Honolulu native churches ; and more es
pecially at the public concerts that
have been given by them, in which these
Choirs have not only pleased their au
diences, but have established a reputation
that ensures them a large attendance
whenever they choose to have a concert.
So also the music at the Roman Catholic
Cathedral has become a very pleasing
part of their services, and the music given
is that of the best composers.
We observe that a tendency is now
being shown among the Ilawaiians to
learn to play on musical instruments, and
to club together for the purposes of mu
sical amusement. This teiideney, in some
districts, has been fostered by private
parties. Instruments and music hate
been furnished, so that already, in several
country places, bauds have been organ
ized, which have attained to considerable
skill in their performances. The fashion
is spreading, so that these village bands
are likely to multiply, and will furnish to
their neighborhoods a means of harmless
as well as pleasing recreation.
It is not impossible that we may yet
see a spirit of musical competition spring
ing up, and, as in other countries, the
rural and the city bands joining their
forces on some gala festival in Honolulu,
when an appeal will be made to the public
judgment as to the merit and skill of the
performers, and the Editorial Critic will
be button-holed by the whole fraternity.
Later Foreign News I
Bv the arrival this morning of the clip
per ship Sonora, thirteen days from San
Francisco, we have dates up to the 25th
ult., being five days later than those re
ceived by the bark Theresa.
Affairs in Europe are in about the same
condition as reported by last telegrams.
The important action taken by Englaud
in taking a decided stand to secure an
armstice has created a profound sensa
tion throughout Europe. It is to be hoped
that peace will grow out of this action of
the British Government, although the un
expected nature of such action seems to
have taken all Europe by surprise. The
the French naDers are severe.
The military situation in France is the
same as reported by last advices.

pension of arms to allow the election of members of
the Constituent Assembly, which may make peace.
In thus acting does England listen to thegeneral In
terest, to considerations of policy and humanity, or
Is she secretly pushed by thebcligerents? Who has
had all her sympathy up to the present time! Many
persons Incline to the belief that the English Cabinet
Is not acllDE by-the advlte ofPrnsela, who, stopped
.imlefinltelr before Faris; has made known to Eng
land that the time lias come lor action on her part."
La Franc fays England was not solicited again
by France, whose application she at first refuted.
France asks not lor armistice, and has not author
ized Euglaud to ask for one since the failure of Favre.
France has thought only of organizing for delenct.-.
Whatever motive she may hate, England must no
lice the mustering f our Mobile Guards and tne
spirits of Paris, Lyons and other large cities. As
England now proposes an armistice, It must be be
cause she understands that proposals will be made
which ne may accept. We rtfuse toadmll thegood
iuUntlon of Englaud, and believe that she is acting
solely for Prussia, who at last finds she has under
taken an impossible task. England Is advised to
tell Prussia to muko the most reasonable Semands
else a war a'loutrance will only be the result.
Lo.inuy, Oct. 24. There are rumors hero that con
ditions of peace hare been signed between Bazaine

Lo.ndo.i, Oct. 14. Cable special dispatch to the
New York Herald. It i stated on good authority
that the intervention of England in favor of an arm
istice was induced by an apprehension of ulterior de
signs on the part of Itussia and Prussia to form a
close alliance. The fact that Russia is quietly arm
ing is well known, despite her oGcial denials.
England begins to see that the ntter prostration of
France would deprive her of the only strong ally to
be depended on for the frustration of Pus;ia'a polit
ical schemes in the East.
London, October 24th. Tribune Cable. There
is authority for stating that the negotiations thus far
are proceeding satisfactorily.
Granville proposed a meeting between, Thiers and
Bismarck, and both assented; that Bismarck .tent
Thiers a safe conduct, but no basis has been accepted
or suggested Granville expresses himself sat
isfied with the manner In which his overtures have
been received by other powers, as well as ,by the
belligerent;, but to-day, as J esterday, avoids express
ing any confidence in their success.
Nothing has been beard from Paris.
Rumors of peace abound. It Is reported that the
Empress is participating in tbe negotiations, and also
tbe Emperor, but it Is believed that nothing serious
14 proceeding except from Granville's initiative.

CsiciGO, October 18. The TVjtsnse'a Washington
special has the following in relation to the appoint
ment of a sacceiior to Secretary Cox :
"'it seems that immediately after the latter's resig
nation was received and accepted, the position was
tendered to Mr. Delano, who agreed to accent it, pro
vided he could hare the privilege of naming his suc
cessor for Commissioner of Internal Revenue, so as to
insure his nnmcrous friends sin the bureau, and espe
cially In Ohio, against removal. Mr.Bontwell very
naturally desired to be coasulted in the matter, and
it at once became apparent tbat bis ideas in regard to
a new Commissioner and those of Mr. Delano did uot
agree. The latter wishes the President to appoint
Gen. B. R. Cowan? now Supervisor la Southern Ohio,
and in consultation to-day the President was strongly
disposed to make the appointment. In cose he does,
the President's near friends assert that It will iniolve"
a direct break with Secretary Boutwell. They also
declare the President has already taken some steps
looking to a change in the Treasury Department be
fore the meeting of Congress.

Consul Adamson will be relieved by Mr. Mattoon, the
new appointee, in about a month.
