another thing, his one enterprise of securing a

tinguish him from all his predecessors. He
was no sooner fairly settled in his place than
he began SB work for the treaty. He went ab ut
the business in a sensible sort of way, corre
sanding with intelligent business, men collect
ing data, ami putting his facts into documents
in a way to have the best effect. Theu he had
the good sense to talk the matter up. Instead
of retiring out of sight, he chose to leave his
own country and to present his case in person.
It was a good stroke of (tolicy to make known
the intention some time in advance. There was
a Federal ship placed at his disposal, and he
came with just that degree of circumstance and
publicity which would best promote his ulti
mate purpose. His visit had a national char
acter. He went on change, talked with mer
chants and men f olitical influence. In short
he so managed that wherever he went he melted
down all antagonisms. Here was a King, and
something more. For, aside from this he was
a clever business man who knew exactly what
he wanted and pushed for that by the only
method in which it was possible to gain his

It lias been stated tliat the Hawaiian Trcaty
" will doubtless go into effect within the next
thirty days." This is not so. One clause
of it stipulates that it shall not go into
ojieration until Congress lias passed an act
making the revenue laws conform to the treaty .
This provision was inserted as a concession to
Congress, which some years ago claimed
that the Senate had 110 power, in a treaty
with a foreign nation, to appropriate mo
neys or to alter the revenue laws without
its consent in other words, that the Senate
alone cannot enact or reiieal revenue laws.
The Senate possesses two distinct functions
executive and legislative. The former, united
with that of the President, constitutes the
treaty-making power : The latter, united with
that of the representatives, constitutes the leg
islative power. The treaty, as it now stands,
is a law of the land, made and confirmed by
the constitutional treaty-making power, (the
President and Senate,) and the faith of the
American Government and people has been
solemnly pledged to Hawaii by the President
and Senate. There can be no doubt that Con
gress will, when it assembles in December
next, pass the necessary act, for no instance
has ever been known where it has failed to
sustain the treaty-making power. The treaty
will take effect after tlie law has been passed,
and proclamation thereof made. This cannot
be before January 1, 1676. Of course no Ha
waiian products can lie admitted free into
American ports, until this is done; nor can
American products be admitted here free till
When we last week referred to the rejection
1 by President M"Mahon, of tbe Duke d'Attdiffret
Pasquier as one of his Cabinet Ministers, we
j did not imagine that his triumph would come
so soon. He was rejected by the President,
I because too Rrimhlioan in his politics. But
1 the Xational Assembly did not think so, for
1 they have chosen him to be their president by
the most extraordinary vote of 598 out of 700 !
, He takes the place of Buffet, as presiding offi
j cer, and of course bocomes, next to Macmahon,
I the most influential man in France. He is evi
j dently destined to become the leader of the
coalition which has taken place between the
! Republicans and Monarchists. If he be the man
that we take him to be, a conciliatory and con
servative Republican, able to fill any position
he may occupy, it speaks well for the future
of France that he has been brought forward,
with so much unanimity, into the front.
At a late meeting of the San Francisco Micro
scopical Society, a letter was read from Mr.
Joseph Beck of London, which may interest
the Members of our Honolulu Society. He
says : "It is for those enthusiastic and ardent
workers with our favorite instrument, living in
new countries and surrounded with objects in
viting their examination, that we expect fresh
contributions to our stock of knowledge. In
microscopical apparatus there is but little new.
We have increased the angle of our Achromatic
Condenser to suit the purposes of those who
are still studying the ultimate structure of the
diatoraacese, and under the direction and with
the assistance of Mr. Sorby, are introducing
various novelties in connection with the spec
troscope, which is still claiming much atten
tion. The intricate natttre of some of these
investigations, and the uncertainties attending
some of them, have led some even to doubt the
value of results obtained ; but each new fact
is a step in advance, and I cannot bnt believe
that in due time the appearance presented un
der this instrument will be of great value to
science. We have yet much to learn, and I
think that one branch that may be of use
will be the ascertaining of the time re
quired for the absorption by vegetables of
certain substances, thus aiding both the farmer
and the fruit-grower in the cultivation of their
crops. Some of the most interesting lectures
we have bad over here, have been on the in
stincts and query reasoning faculties of insects,
by Sir J. Lubbock, and on the great discoveries
of submarine matters, resulting from the ex
pedition of the Challenger."

On Thnrsday evening last, the day on
which the mail steamer arrived there was an
impromptu demonstration consisting of a
torchlight procession to welcome home Hon.
U. A. P. Carter, the Hawaiian Treaty Com
missioner to Washington, who brought the
news of the passage of the treaty in the Senate,
by an almost unanimous vote of 51 to 12, as
well as the treaty itself.
It was proposed to visit His Majesty first
and congratulate him on the successful issue
of the measure. But on learning of the plan,
the King gave orders that the procession should
first visit the residence of Mr. Carter in Xuu
anu Valley, after which he would be happy to
meet the citizens, adding that he " considered
that the first honors were due to Mr. Carter."
The procession formed on Union Square
aliout p. u.. near the Engine House of Xo. 2,
j and headed by Berger's brass band of twenty-
four instruments, moved through Beretanta
ami Nuuanu streets, to Mr. Carter's residence,
bearing several hundred torches and a few
banners hastily got ready for the occasion.
Arriving in front of his dwelling, the band
played a national air, after which Mr. S. B.
Dole, on behalf of the citizens, addressed the
Commissioner. Kith standing on the verandah :
Mr. CtrtTBh t In the name of tbe citiiens of Hono
lulu, and indeed of all these Islands, we weleotne you
home again. We appreciate the sacrifice of personal
interest and comfort which you made in accepting tbe
difficult puat of Commissioner to Washington. Y'ou
bare fulfilled our higbest expectations. Tbo success
that has crowned tbe labors of yourself and your as
sociate, shows that Uts Majesty's selection of Ambas
sadors was wise and most appropriate. We bare
come to congratulate you upon your success and to
thank you heartily for your faithful and patriotic ef
forts in a measure which is full of bope and promise
to this nation. Y'ou bare accomplished the first great
step, aud with you. we look confidently for final suc
cess, and for the prosperity wbtcb as tbe natural re
sult will coma to all classes, and every man. woman
and child in tbe country. Will you, Mr. Carter, ac
cept this demonstration as a faint token of the feeling
of the whole people toward you 00 tbis occasion.
Hoping that you may long live to witness and to en
joy the blessings and national strength which this
treaty prumises to the country, we again welcome you
home to Hawaii Net. tbe laud of your birth, and as.
sure you that these yuur public services will never be
forgotten by yuur fetlow-citixcns.
Mr. Carter replied in the following words,
which were interpreted to the natives by His
Honor Justice Judd :
I thank you Mr. Dole, and all of yoa ray kiud
friends, for your cordiil welcome to mc on my re
turn from this service.
Tlie policy of makiug a closer commercial connec
tion with our near neighbors tbe United States, bas
been & Ba'aiian idea for nearly twenty years, and 1
am a wars that this demonstration la In gieat part
owing to patriotic pleasure at tbe success of a great
nttional policy. I accept your congratulations as
not only for myself but for the Chancellor of the
Kingdom, with whom I was associated, whose
strong faith In tbe success of such a mission bad
much to do with this attempt to make a successful
negotiation ; also for those wbose former efforts did
much to pave tbe way to success.
Y'ou all know how much was due to the very fa
vorable impression made in tbe United States by
His Majesty the King, whose good fortune It has
been to succeed in inaugurating tbe policy which
tiis predecessors have favored, from the days of Ka
mehameha HI. Very much, also, was dne to the
kindly feeling of the President, Cabinet officers, and
Senators of the United States, who were most gen
erously disposed towards our little nation ;fand their
action was the endorsement by American statesman
ship of tbe policy persistently pursued by tbe phil
anthropists ol America towards tbis nation for more
than half a century.
All of those influences combined to secure tbe suc
cess of our tniasiou, and I trust tbe operation of the
Treaty will prove beneficial to botb countries, and
believe that it secures the progress and prosperity
of Hawaii Nei.
As I am told it is now your purpose to proceed to
pay your respects to our King, I beg you to allow
me to jiiin you in this most deserved mark ot respect
to the Sovereign, who has done so much towards ac
complishing tbe object wbieb we have atl desired.
Mr. Carter's remarks were frequently inter
rupted with cheering and the discharge of fire
The verandah was crowded with ladies and
1 gentlemen, among whom we noticed His Ex
cellency the American Minister and the vener
able Mrs. Thurston, the only survivor of the
pioneer band of missionaries who landed on
Hawaii fifty-five years ago last month.
The procession then formed again, and mov
ed down Xuuanu Avenue, the numerous torch
es turning night into day. The streets were
lined with spectators, and some of the dwell
ings were illuminated, among them Dr. Hoff
mann's, Mr. Afong's, Daniel Foster's, Peter C.
Jones', Mr. Brewer's, Mr- Xott's and others.
The Chinese merchants and citizens had turn
ed out quite strong, providing torches of their
own, and in addition brought a cart-load of
fire-crackers and bombs, which were dis
charged as the procession moved through the
streets. At times, when whole boxes were
fired, the noi sc was deafening.
Arriving at the Government House, the citi
zens formed in front of the entrance, where
were assembled His Majesty, his Ministers and
other government officers, and many specta
tors. When His Majesty advanced to the plat
form erected for him, Mr. H. M. Whitney ad
dressed him in behalf of the citizens, in the
following words :
Sire: The 1; . :" Honolulu have taken tbis
mode of showing their appreciation of your efforts
to secure for Hawaii tbe benefits of a Keciprocity
Treaty with America. Tbe gratifying news has tbis
I day been received that the American Senate his, by
; an almost unanimous vote, approved the treaty. To
! you. Sire, more than to any other person, is due the
honor of its success. Tour recent visit to tbe
1 United States created a new aloka and sympathy for
your people and country, which bas culminated in
' securing for us tbe treaty. So long as it shall re
! main tbe law of tbe land. Hawaii's independence
I will be assured ; wbicb we hope may be for all time.
I Sire, we congratulate you that tbis result, wbicb bas
: been coveted by each of your predecessors, has been
reserved for you. We congratulate your govern
: meat and tbe people of Hawaii nei, for the welcome
j news tbis day received.
His Majesty replied in English quite briefly
as follows :
Gentlemen : It is with great pleasure that I
congratulate you upon tbe passage by tbe Senate of
the United States, of tbe Treaty of Reciprocity ne
gotiated between oar good friend tbe United States
Government and Hawaii nei ; and I trust that after
its ratification by me and tbe passage io tbe Con
gresa of the United States of toe necessary law to
carry it into effect, it may redound to the great
prosperity of our country. (Cheers.)
In Hawaiian he spoke at considerable length,
explaining the details of the treaty and how it
would prove a benefit to all the people, who
chose to be industrious. This, he added, is one
of the great measures desired to restore life to
Hawaii and to perpetuate our race.
His Excellency Wm. L. Green, Minister of
Foreign Affairs, having been loudly called for,
said :
It is now twenty years since tbis country first
commenced its efforts to obtain a Reciprocity Treaty
with the United States of America. To-day you
have received tbe news that tbe Senate has passed,
by a handsome majority, tbe Treatv wbicb His Maj
esty and His Envoys have made such efforts to se
cure. This question of reciprocity trade with oar conti
nental neighbors Is no new subject. I need not tell
you anything about the advantages wbicb must re
sult from it to every one of ns. Ton know tbem
as well as I do. I bare lived in tbis country and
been identified with its industrial progress twenty
five years, and I may safely say, that bo event Ibat
baa occurred in that time haa been ao full of promise
to tbe true Interests of this country as tbe passage
or this treaty by the U tilted States Senate.
I may add one fact more so long as this treaty
with tbe United States exists, tbe Independence of
tbis Kingdom Is secured, (loud cheers.)
His Excellency the American Minister was
also loudly called for, but declined to make a
speech, though he said he must congratulate
the citiiens on the receipt of the news of the
ratification of the treaty. Three cheers were
then given for the treaty, when the procession
returned to Union Square, and quietly dis
jierseil. irrom tbe Phil. North American. 1
The Ilsawnllun Treaty.
The Senate has done a very sensible thing
in ratifying the Keciprocity treaty with Ha
waii, and it is a little remarkable that after so
much talk in opposition there should have been
only twelve votes against the treaty. The
truth seems to be that there exists an indispo
sition to approve of any act of the present na
tional executive that is likely to be a distinc
tive and conspicuously successful measure of
national progress. It was this that defeated
the San Domingo treaty, that prevented the
acquisition of the Xavigator Islatids, and it is
this that prompts an immediate assault upon
every action of the Treasury Department, no
matter what it may lie. But in the matter of
the Hawaiian treaty, this senseless and gene
ral opjwsition seems to have overshot the mark
and defeated itself. For there on the one hand
was Senator Morrill, of Ycrmout, opposing the
treaty on protectionist grounds, and on the
nther hand free-traders opposing it because
" we do not want the islands." But the course
of the delate ex(Ksed the utter hollowness ot"
the oprxwition to such nn extent that a nuniWr
of votes were gained for the treaty as it ad
vanced : that in, the more the opposition talked
the weaker they grew.
The truth is that the stateniunship which is
in opposition to all further territorial afrgrnn
dizeineut and insensible to the importance of
commercial power all over the world is about
" played out." The halo thrown around this
order of public men by the opposition of Henry
Clay to the annexation of Texas and of Daniel
Webster to all further territorial acquisitions
has done a world of mischief in our national
politics. Sumner bad to contend against it
when he advocated the purchase of Alaska,
and he succumbed to it entirely when he op
posed the annexation of San Domingo. But in
the present instance no annexation was pro
! , I by the treaty, though it is well known
that if there were any show for the ratification
of a treaty of annexation we could get the is
lands at any time, as the American influence is
largely predominant there. With a keen scent
for positive and progressive measures, the
regular and determined opposition promptly
begun to array itself against the reciprocity
The same class of expert fault-finders who
can discover no permanent civilization or pro
gress in Xew Mexico, who think Colorado of no
account, and who seem to look for exact copies
of Xew England in every new territory, have
drawn discouraging pictures of Hawaii. It is
true that the islands have been civilized and
christianized entirely by Americans ; that their
religious devotion ia sincere and that the peo
ple are orderly, easily governed and progress
ive. It is true that American capital has es
tablished commerce at Honolulu und agricul
ture on a considerable scale in all the islands.
Hut the decrease of the native stock is kept
ever in the foreground, though if the Ameri
can population goes on increasing there we
really cannot see that the decrease of the na
tive stock is an argument that we should cease
to take au interest in the islauds. On the con
trary it is apparent that if the whole popula
tion were American the islands would at once
become ten times as important as they now are,
and that Honolulu would become a leading
commercial citv in the Pacific trade.
I From the S. t. Connaerdal Herald.
From all that we can gather out of the
Senatorial debates on the question of Keci
procity with the Hawaiian Kingdom, it seems
that the impelling cause fir a favorable deter
mination was the probability that if the Unit
ed States did not confirm it the opportunity
would have been offered to Great Britain, in
which case our Pacific Ocean commerce would,
in the event of war with England, be entirely
at the mercy of that power. Among those
who figured prominently in this view of tho
subject were General Schofield, of the army,
commanding the Department of the Pacific,
and Admiral Porter, of the navy. These gen
tlemen hold that with a line drawn from Brit
ish Columbia to Australasia and the Hawaiian
Islands in its possession, England would have
almost absolute control of fhe Pacific Coast,
whereas if they were held by us, either throngh
treaty or otherwise, such a result could not be
possible, because they could not then be used
as a coaling station for heavy British ships of
war. This national consideration appears to
be the one which carried the most weight, as
those referring solely to trade and commerce
were treated as mere appendices. By this
treaty the Hawaiian Government binds itself
not to cede or lease any bay or harbor, or any
portion of its territory to a foreign power
other than the United States. Some Senators
appear to regard the confirmation of the treaty
as a sort of entering wedge for a permanent
tenure of the Islands. However that may be,
it is gratifying to know that the subject has
been disposed of finally. The nncertanties
connected with it have been a source of irrita
tion for some years, but now that it is settled,
everybody will know exactly how to tiase his
business transactions with the Islands. As
there seem to be some grave misgivings in
reference to the conditions imposed by the
treaty, we have no possible doubt of its being
already a fixed fact, and will go into operation
at the period named in the instrument. The
House of Bepresentatives has nothing what
ever to do with the matter. It has already
been signed by the high contracting powers
and is perfected ; neither is it subject to any
tariff amendments, because it is in itself an
exception in tariff charges on all Island pro
ducts to be admitted duty free under its stipu
lations, and, moreover, it is a contract between
two sovereign powers, and not a mere domestic
arrangement to procure revenues.

Passage of tbe Hawaiian Reci
procity Treaty!
All Raw Sugars Free-Rice to be Free !
On Thursday morning last, tho Mail Steamer
Macgregor, Captain Grainger, appeared off
Diaruoud Head, gaily decked with flags, and the
international code signal, announcing the treaty
passed. On entering the harbor the welcome
news soon spread that the Senate had rati
fied it by a large majority of 51 to 12, or about
four-fifths of the Senators present. As the
mail ship passed the I". S. war steamer Pensa
cola, the vessels exchanged salutes, arid the
band of the latter played a national air.
The details of the discussion will lie found
on our fourth page, which were published in
extras on the day of arrival. Further details
are given in our columns to-day. It is under
stood that all grades of raw Hawaiian sugars
and rice, with the articles before published, are
to be admitted free in all American ports ; while
a large list of American products, specified
in tlie treaty, are to lie admitted here free.
The text of the treaty cannot lie published,
until the ratifications are finally exchanged, and
Congress has provided for its operation. This is
owing to a rule or custom of the American gov
ernment that no document laid before the Sen
ate in its executive capacity, can be publish
ed until after final action has been taken on it.
The only material amendment made by the
Senate was, that during the continuance of the
treaty, the Hawaiian government may not cede,
sell or lease any portion of its territory to any
foreign power. This was evidently done in case
an attempt should lie made by another nwer to
acquire au advantage or foothold hero ; though
it is well known here that the Hawaiian people
are strongly opposed to ceiling away any part of
their territory. This clause will only render
the treaty more popular with them than it has
been, and is, moreover, an additional guaranty
of the independence of the group, to secure
which has really been tho impelling object of
the American Senate in ratifying the treaty.
There is nothing iu the treaty giving privi
leges to American citizens or ships over those
of other nations. The reciprocity clauses apply
exclusively to goods and merchandise named
in it.
Hawaii has obtained this special favor, not
liecause the reciprocity between the two
countries will be equal, but because the Am
erican people feel a great interest in main
taining our national independence, and they
are willing to make a sacrifice, in a fiuancial
point, for this purpose. For this Hawaii owes
a debt of gratitude to America. To all tho
Senators who voted for the treaty, but more
especially to Senators Kelly and Mitchell,
of Oregon, Senator Cameron of Pennsylvania,
Hamlin of Maine, Sargent of California, und
Jones of Nevada, as well as to the President
und his Cabinet, the Hawaiian people will ever
feel grateful. The American press has also
shown the wannest friendship for as in this
effort to form a closer commercial union.
The visit of King Kalakatia, no doubt, aided
much in securing this boon for us, as his man
ly and modest bearing won for him and for us
an unmistakable friendship. The Alhi gays
very truthfully : " It is more than probable
that the recent visit of the Hawaiian King to
and through a good portion of our country
materially aided the passago of the treaty.
He came, although a King, democratically,
and us fur as possible, without any of the pon
derous formalities which monurchs aro so fond
of wrapping themselves up in. He proved
himself an agreeable, intelligent, well-behaved
gentleman, and in those characteristics we see
more of the qualities which honor the n?me
and state of King than can all tho form and
ceremony of Courts, even that most pretentious
one of China." The same paper atlds : " The
Hawaiian Treaty has passed the ordeal of tho
Senate, the telegraph says by a vote of fifty
one to twelve, a very decided majority. Wo
think that besides any prospective pecuniary
and business advantage which the Senate and
tho country saw in this troaty, there was a
strong feeling of sympathy for a weak people
and Government who appealed to a great na
tion for a favor. It may be that some see in
this an eventual acquisition of the Islands. It
may be so; but we think that idea hail but lit
tle to do with negotiating the treaty."
There is nothing in this treaty which any
European power can take exception to. The
principle of reciprocity by treaties has
been recognized by England and France, and
both these Governments will probably fully
endorse it in this case. The chief benefit which
Hawaii will derive under the treaty will be the
impetus which it will give to industry among
all classes, natives as well as foreigners. It will
be Hawaii's great opportunity a measure
that will attract immigrants from every
quarter of the globe, and speed her and her
people on the ocean of prosperity ; while
America will secure an increased trade in
lumber, flour and manufactures, the demand for
which will constantly expand as our products
and industries increase. In this way the ad
vantages will be mutual, though they may not
be equal in value.
