This gentioiuan, although an old resident of llonolnki, who has since 18-49 boen prominently identified with its. commercial affairs, and who has always taken a deep interest in the progress of tho country, is, never theless, an enthusiastic American, of genuine Yankee Block. Mr. Cartwright is a strong up holder of the laws of the home of his adoption, and an admirer of Hawaii, s hero be has for nearly half a cen tury been happy and prosperous; and, where, having already passed tlu allotted "three score years and ten," ho will in all probability end bis days. So strong, nevertheless, are his lovo for and his loyalty toward the land of his birth, that ho has re fused to take the oath of allegiance, eveO in times past when it was, more than now, advisable for those having bu.iiness interests in this country to Income Hawaiian citizens. Notwith standing this fact, however, Mr. Cart wright has prospered in Honolulu, and is to day not only respected by all, bat enjoys a very lucrative busi ne.is and a liberal share of tbid world's goods. To pnMish more than an epitome of the eventful life of A. J. Cartwright is not practicable in a work of this character. He was one of the early argonauts of Call fornia, and his biography would, if exhaustively written, bo extremely interesting. It would indeed till a volume, and be an invalnablo text book to place in the hands of the rising gneratin to reflect upon and emulate. A ,!,rX ANDF.R 0ABTWB I0HT, Alerandfsr Joy Cartwright was bora in New York ('iy on tbe 17th day of April, 1820. He is therefore now in bffl 721 year, although still actively engaged in business. He is living example of the beneficial efTeeU of exercise and athletics, Of which he has all his life been fond. His step is still elas tic and his figure- erect, and being possessed of the greatly to bo-desired Ttn nana in r.orpore svno, bis years sit lightly on bis shoulders. The first twenty nine yeani of the life of tbe subject of this sketch were passed in the grt at Atftorj&n metropolis. He received a very good education, and ai the ago of abont -.ixfceen years hn efktore l the broker1 ofBoo, in WftJl street, of Coit & Cochrane, subse qnently becoming employed in the old Union Bank of New York. Bat wealth did not here come fast enough to snit Ijih being of r:n i ai ibitious detJf e. and ; d v e n I n to fl I d i ffKM i ti on , he d ci I( d to , iiu the hardy band of gold hunters who braved tbe dangers and hardships of a four months' trip to California aeroes tbe plains in search oi the proetOttf metal. Ac cordingly, i;s company with Capt. ffcos. S e!e;; and dpt. B. Frank Wolsey, b joined the party which left Newark, New Jersey, for the new i'A Dorado, nr.'lr tbo command of Or. D'Arcey, then president of the Camden mA Am!oy liailroad. The I party proceeded via Pittsburgh, Pa , where they pure baaed their outfits, which - - ..; ped to 1, pndfTjce, Mo , fr .m whfeb place tbe trip across the i;!air.s was begun. Tbe Cart- wright. party, however, left D'Arcey a! . r-oiBt, : ( .hr.nT as far as the Bine with Col. Uussel, from strn !v tiiern and arriv i for nil, on Mr. building mm b&i .: erected by Bar- ton.

Seoley and the subject f this sketch ir first attention to mining; - .ooking over .r 'id, they wisely decided that other openings offered greater inducement to men of their class, and they proceeded down hoSr. to rivet to Man Fran- ehsco. Here Mr. Cartwright met. his brother, Alfred, wbo had prec k!ifornia viCape Horn, Tho first business ventnre of A. J. Car'--- rigfcf was pnrchasin? with his brother interest, of 4. Ross Browne in n, mining enterprise which Wi being y t:. party wbocarao to a,an Francisco ir. the : hip Pacific. This ventnre did not result as was expected, and ??as s-K.n iven np. 3 mi Shortly after his arrival in .San Fradcisco, Mr. Cartwright was at tacked with dysentery, and was ad vised by one Charles Robinson, who had previously lived in Honolulu, to go to the Sandwich Islands, of which bo gave a glowing description. Ho nolulu was then tbe principal supply point for San Francisco for fruits and vegetables, and was also a ren dezvous for vessels in the Pacific Ocean. Mr. Cartwright decided to follow the advice, with the view of continuing, after recovering his health, to China, where he coirld se cure passage for New York. He ar rived in Honolulu on tho 17th of August, 1840. Here he mot Aaron B. Howe, a former acquaintance in New York, who was then engaged in the shipchandlery business, and who offered him a position as bookkeeper until he (Howe) should return from a voyage to California. Thi? he ac cepted, and upon Mr. Howe's roturn from " the Coast," the latter again chartered the brig Pacific, which ho loadod with sweet potatoes, and in duced Mr. Cartwright to go to Califor nia as supercargo. Mr. Cartwright had abandoned his idea of going to China, and had planned to remit to Mr. Howe the proceeds of the ven ture, and remain in America. He bad no intention of returning to Honolulu, 'but like most people who have once tasted tho delights of life in these Islands, ho soon changed his mind. Upon his second trip to Honolulu, which was made in the clipper ship Sam Itussell, he again entered the employ of Mr. Howe. Upon the death of the latter shortly after Mr. Cartwright engaged with Uicbard Cody as bookkeeper at a very remunerative salary, and dur ing tbe year 1852 again went to Cali fornia as snpercargo in tho bark Yankee, returning in the brig Isa bella. Since that Himo Mr. A. J. Cartwright has never left tbe Ha waiian Islands. He then sont for bis wife and three children, who arrived in the early part of 1852. This gentleman was married in New York more than half a century ago, to Miss Eliza A. Van Wio, a lady of excellent, family from Al bany, Now York. This lady has ilioe been bis partner and helpmeet. This venerable . couple ha? lived happily together in Honolulu for forty two year and moro. Tbe three children who came originally to Honolulu with their mother have since died. Two sons have been born to them here, Bruce and A. J. Jr, both of whom are married in Bono Into, and urn now in business with their father. After two years pent in tbo em ploy of Richard Cody, Mr. Cart wright went into business for him self as agent for whab ships. He was soon afterwards made the MOttt for tbe ('old Spring whaleships from Long Island, and although hi has never directly engaged in merchan dising, be has ever since been closely identified with commercial matters. After the whaling business left these Islands be engaged ineCOMfollj in tbo business which he now conducts.

He takes a deep interest, in history, in science ; and in social, religions and other ' problems. He is thoroughly in- formed on the political affairs of the entire world, and possesses a brilliant mind and a retentive memory for one of his advanced years. Althongh of liberal views this gentleman is of pro- nou need opinions, and is an earnesr. snpporter of any rnoaenre condncive U its political welfare. Fnrther than that, wo think it not too mneb to say I that in ease Hawaii were to become a portion of the United States, no man in the Kingdom would be more pleased than would A. J. Cartwright. Mr. Cartwright's home is on the lint iron block formed by tbe junc tion of Alakea, Beretania and I nion streets, and is one of the attractive residences of Honolulu. Here he takes life easily, and enjoys a well earned competence ; and here, on the pleasant porch of his residence, this gentleman may be often seen enjoy ing his favorite pastime, which is tho perusal of newspapers, magazines, periodicals and other literature. moral 2Umcneni mi, HONOLULU IRON WORKS CO., Steam Engines, Boiler.
