Rear Admiral Hekeage, the officer
commanding the British squadron in the
Pacific, is earning the epithet of "Sir
Joseph Porter." He has forbidden any
officer or man to walk on the poop of the
flagship while he is there, and insists
on the crew uncovering their heads as
long as he is on deck. He also requires
his officers to wear white kid cloves at
divisions on Snndays, and to have their
frock coats and tunics buttoned on all
occasions. We are not longing tor a
berth on his vessel.
A resident of Los Angeles, who had
become utterly disgusted with the Chi
nese, resolved that he would never em
ploy another one of them in any ca
pacity. Having laid in his winter's sup
ply of cord-wood, he accordingly em
ployed an Indian to saw it up for fuel at
a dollar a cord. The gentleman, having
occasion to go away for a few hours, left
the Indian sawing; but on returning he
"found that Indian sitting astride the
yard fence,, and bossing two Chinamen
who were sawing at fifty, cents a cord."
A libel suit has Just been ended in
Lancaster in which ; a. newspaper was
sued for stating that the plaintiff had de
serted his wife and children, and that
they were objects of charity. The truth
of the statement was proved on the trial
and the verdict was in favor of the de
fendants; but the: latter, it appears,
must pay part of the costs. An Eastern
paper asks, with some right, "If it is not
about time that the bummers who bring
frivolous libel suits against newspapers
should be made to pay the costs unless

The Commission to administer the af
fairs in the New Hebrides will consist of
a President and two British and two
French - officers. Each nationality is to
furnish a President monthly. The Com
mission is to assemble when any dis

military or naval measures can be car
ried on without .first , having obtained
the sanction of the. Commission. In
matters of urgency the nearest com
mander shall act in concert ; but, if that
is not possible, action may be taken
separately. Such action must be re

await the Commissioners' orders. The

J UrnFmm v. Je&a7.Cait.
1 Ed. P. C. A. Sir: The wording of
; the effusion of one John F. Smith in
I the "Bulletin" of the 13th of this month
compels me to rush into print, although
I don't profess to be as good a hand in
that respect as Mr. 8. does. Mr. S. has
answered my writing by no argument of
reason, only by one of force. He " has
not combatted one single advancement
I made for my countrymen in this King
dom. All he does is to declaim against
us for our national dress; says that we
are nasty, and that we make Honolulu
a spittoon. (This is what I am told he
means by his elegant word "caspidore."
This Mr. Smith must be a very learned
man.) But he says he is champion for
the voters -the f ranch ised citizens of
Hawaii and as such advocates the right
to kick us out of the land in which most
of us are employed by the leading people
in trade and wealth in it, without whose
generosity and kindness this very. Mr.
Smith and most of his envious country
men would not be here. Ihia he calls
"Christianity." It is so with a ven
geance. I don't believe thatlhe "Chris
tian" voters he would call on to do us a
manifest wrong would call it so, neither
will they, for they must have a better
opinion of the rights and duties of Chris
tians in this and every other country
'than he does. Christianity calls for
peace, good-will, brotherly love and
charity none of which Mr. Smith sup
ports as his special virtue. Let Mr. Smith
look in at the Chinese doings in their
church on Fort street and at their ad
joining institution and see for himself
what the Chinese advocate there. Let
him peruse the constitutions of bur be
nevolent and friendly societies framed
for promoting all the above virtues, and
then what kind of a face can he put on?
I am not the special advocate of any
form of religion Chinese or haole but
I am, and my countrymen, so far as I
know whether followers of their fore
fathers, great Confucius or Christians
are advocates of the above virtues, and
endeavor to practice them, whether Mr.
Smith does so or not. The free consti
tutional Government, so called (if there
be one) is v "' not likely to do
us a wrong by compliance with
Mr. Smith's urgent demands. The
law of this country will protect us in the
.right. Neither I nor my countrymen
can object to anything which may law
fully be done in repressing further im
: migration of my countrymen into these"
Islands to . help the leading industry.
But it is right for us here to demand an
equal justice with all other free resi
dents. Slaves, as you, Mr. Smith, have
: termed us, we were neither bought nor
'sold ; our sins have been honesty to as
great a limit as humanity will bear,
frugality, peacefuiness and advancement
in business ; not enviousness of others,
but law-abiding, quietness and non
: political. We think that you, Mr.
Smith, must know something of slaves,
perhaps, in another country, the eman
cipation of whom cost that country so
! much blood and dollars. If you think
we are really slaves why don't you
rightly start at once to emancipate and
elevate and enlighten us, as your coun
trymen did, instead of treating us to the
lash and usages bestowed on the real
slaves you so well remember? If you
did so you would meet with the support
you call on to keep us slaves, '-'born to
be slaves of the fields," as you write,
and not otherwise. As to our nastiness
and harming, the lrtter speaks for itself.
Thank you, 3Ir. Smith, for according us
some one thing clever as to the former.
There must always" be good and bad in
everything. Honolulu is not a clean
place, but the law-makers and those em
ployed by the Government for health do
everything that they can to keep things
clean. The Chinese, if out of order, are
subject to lawful correction, and so are
the natives, haoles, Portuguese, Japa
nese and other foreigners, who are equals;
if not worse, in their lines of uncleanli
ness, as officials will recognize.
Now, Mr. Smith, you have heard from
your "slave.'' I. have on my part been
forced into writing this. Anything un
charitable or unchristian which I have
written, please excuse, and in like man
ner I excuse you for anything in yours.
Yours, etc., Ho Fon.

' 31'mrse A Terrible
IXr- Edward WeftzeJ, of Detroit, formerly
advance agent for a popular theatrical com
pany; tells this story: " .
MVhile on my way from LamsriBe to
Nashville name three years ago I found my
self in company with the members of a
troupe Mrbo were going to Hemphis. It was
a nighl express, asd - preTioos to retir

Stage stagey, uatH cne of them varied it by
relating a personal experience that struck me
forcibly at the time. J " .
, When I was a call boy at the Chestnut
Street theatre in Philadelphia,' be said, a
celebrateii phrenologist, Dr. Simms, came to
that city to lecture. He was a great friend
of the manager of the theatre and wanting a
young man for an assistant he applied to the
manager. I was offered the position and as
the doctorwas about to start on a trip around
the world I accepted. We visited nearly all '
the crehzed countries on the globe, and at
the end of two years found ourselves in
Brazil. During our stay in Bio Janeiro the
cholera broke out and the old doctor (who
was a fine physician) determined to remain
and attach himself to the medical staff of the
hospital. He offered to send me away if I
wished to go, but I told him I would stay,
and stay I did, assisting him in his work at
the hospital. . '
" After a fortnight I was taken sick and
on describing my symptoms to the doctor I
received the cheerful " information that
cholera had fastened its grip on me. . How
ever, the doctor attended me so faithfully
that I passed the crisis safely and at last
found myself, convalescent. The nurses at
the hospital were mostly Sisters of Charity,
and the fearlessness with which they per
formed their difficult and dangerous duties
was enough to make those of the patients
who could appreciate their untiring devotion
regard them as almost divine beings. In the
same ward in which I lay was a Portuguese
sailor who was also convalescent. His bed
was but a short distance from mine, and one
morning: when one of the sisters entered the
ward alone he offered her an insult. The sis
ter hurriedly left the ward. One of the na
tive doctors attached to the hospital entered
a few minutes later. Going up to the Portu
guese, he asked him how he felt. "Better,"
he replied. "Yes," said the doctor, "you will
soon be able to leave the hoepital, but I must
change your medicine.'' And he did so.
There was something in his tone that struck
me at the time, and I wondered if the nurse
had told him of what had taken place. That
night, when the dead cart crove off to the
lime pits with its ghastly load, the body of
that lately convalescent Portuguese sailor
who had offered insult to a Sister of Charity
