N 194 THE POLYNESIAN, SATURDAY, APRIL 17, 1847. THE POLYNESIAN. HONOLULU, SATURDAY. APRIL 17, 1847. fCT Publicity of procedure in judicial trials is favorable to justice. The public, however, cannot in general be in attendance at the court houses, con sequently the cases tried, to appear at all, must come through the medium of the press. In the in fancy of our judicial system, it is particularly desi rable that the public should be made acquainted with all its business details. Precedents, forms, rules and doctrines affecting the rights and interests of all, are being established, and it becomes the public not only to be jealous of the correct administration of justice, but to keep paco with its progress. Hence, although we gave an abstract in our last of the cases disposed of during the April term, yet as we have been able this week to procure a report more in detail, we give it to our readers. The remarks of Judge Lee upon opening the court are worthy the attention of every one. S...

1 THE POLYNESIAN SATURDAY. APRIL 17, 1847. Court of Oabu. April Tirm, 1817. Monday, 5th. Judge Lek on the Bench. After the opening of the Court the Judge address ed the jury in substance as follows : GiNTtiMiN, You have been impannelled and returned to this Court as jurors, to try the several is. suet joined therein, and to be tried at its present term. In the infancy of the courts of this kingdom, it may not be inappropriate for me to address a few words to you in regard to your duties. Your duty, gentlemen, in common with that of the court, is a high and holy one a duty which prescribes but one path to travel in, and that, the path of strict and im partial justice to all men. A duty it is, blind to all bias, uninfluenced by personal feeling, and uncon trolled by policy, self-interest, or any other motive than the desire 'to do that which shall bo strictly right between man and tnan. Every community, gentlemen, is more or less af fected by petty, personal differences and animosi ti...

198 THE POLYNESIAN, SATURDAY, APRIL 24, 1847. THE POLYNESIAN. HONOLULU, SATURDAY APRIL 24, 1847. ICP Mr. Brinsmade accuses (his Government of having reduced him to beggary. It is worth our while to put him upon the trial of fact for this assertion.. To do this we must recur to the early history of his firm (Ladd & Co.) and more particular ly to his agency in its connection with this govern ment as it existed from 1834 to 1841, when Mr. Brinsmade left for Europe. The missionary influ ence, as contradistinguished from the foreign resi dent, had then become paramount. That is to say, the chiefs, generally, were sincerely attached totheir religious teachers, and relied much on their judg ments. Without directly participating in politics, they undoubtedly had great influence in the general flairs of the nation. The necessities of the chiefs required instruction in the laws, usages and policy of civilized nations. It was natural that they should seek for advice from those they conside...

" 'ft' , CF What Mr- Brinsmade' course has been towards his creditors, we have in part shown in our previous numbers. With one hand he pretended to approach the government holding out an olive branch with which to treat amicably for the benefit of his creditors; with the other he was writing him self an apostate to his religion and a renegade to his political sentiments, as avowed whence was ' look ing for personal advantages through the spectacles of philanthropy and piety Whether he designed it or not, he has labored most diligently to undo all 'that' he once held as dear to him as his soul; and this to with with an exhibition of rancor, envy, false hood, and hatred, natural enough it may, be to icheming insincerity and religious hypocrisy, but painful for every well balanced mind to behold. We have already given the grounds on whjch this judg ment is founded, but that...

202 THE 'POL YNESIAN, SATURDA Y, MAY 1, 1847. This tho Minister of Foreign Relations has offi cially asserted in ours of March 27, ' to be " utterly false." Another instance of this propensity of his, will be found in ours of April 3, in which the Minister of Pub lie Instruction, Mr. Richards, in contradicting some of his statements, proclaims them false and mali cious in the extreme. ' We roost emphatically pronounce the following paragraphs to be equally " false and malicious in the extreme,'' and challenge him to produce even the shadow of proof i ' " The single idea of Independent sovereignty was, and is continued to be, used with desolating effect to to carry out a long chtrithed and implacable hostili ty towards allforeignert resident in the country, and towardiull thote interettt in the hand of foreigner which would be likely to become permanently connect ed with the interettt of the nation.
