Arr.rnT, ; ui . j . - n J- - -' ' - ' Such was the state of Chili when Don Manuel Rcngifo was called to administer its finances; and that one man, by the force of his genius, energy and fortitude, in less than two years dispelled the prejudices that beclouded the minds of his countrymen, gave fresh life to the mining, agricultural and commercial interests, filled the treasury, paid the troops and other servants of Govern ment, commuted and arranged for the claims of retired and supernumerary officers, revived .public credit, and totally extin guished contraband, in every part of the Republic. These great and really wonder ful changes were effected through an im mense reduction of duties, by removing . all the restrictions and shackles that pressed upon trade, and by encouraging the influx of foreigners, with their wares and goods, by declaring Valparaiso a free port. What has been the consequence ? Chili has increased in population, industry, wealth and c...

To the EoiTom or the Polynesia : Sir, Public attention has been called to the subject of Allegiance, which so far a9 concerns the meaning of the word, the duty, and the natural reasons which found the claim, I have endeavored to explain from books and from obvious deduction. We have also seen from the same sources, that all mankind, whether natives or domiciled persons, live under the obligation of obedi ence to some earthly Power, as under the force of an oath administered by the Almigh ty Ruler of the Universe. The country of his birth claims the sub ject or the citizen, by tics of gratitude and affection by the strong bonds of asso ciation and early prepossession. Archdean Paley asserts that " man is a bundle of hab its;" and so we find it in reality. Persons and objects, manners and customs, scenes and scenery, diet and fashions, laws usages and custom...

Mr. li is an orator by nature, and to native vigor of expression, adds the charm of polished and commanding action. We are sure, that none who understood the Ha waiian language, could fail of deriving great pleasure and profit from his remarks ; and those who were unacquainted with it, scarce ly less of the former from his peculiarly im pressive manner. The address referred to the great and glorious change brought about by the adherence to the tee-total principle by the chiefs and people generally, and the striking contrast between the former periods of wild mis-rule and intemperance, and the bright days of order and prosperity that are now dawning upon the kingdom. All spoke with feeling, because it was a subject that came home to their hearts bitter and sweet experience, both were theirs the former, past the latter, present. Dr. Winslow ad dressed t...

Of all the pangs that hero unite, To chase dear dreams of fancy's flight, And only wake us but to show, That bliss resides not here below, There's one reserved in constant store, To make the cup of grief run o'er. It is the sad, o'erwhetming power, Of the cheerless parting hour; It is whit rends the feeling heart, When bosom friends are doomed to part; Tis what is felt which nono can tell, Save they who once have said farewell. Oh ! why was mixed this dread alloy, In the o'erflowing cup of joy ? Oh ! why when swells the heart with gladness, Feels it this more prevailing sadness ? I've witnessed oft the last adieu, Of a faithful loving few, Who pirt to share no more again, Eich other's joy, each other's pain. High mountains rise deep oceans flow Between them, if they dell below Or, if by touch etherial slain," They part to mee...

To the above decrees are added many exceptions from the taxes impo sed, explanations, directions for collection, he. Sec. In the preamble to the decree, first quoted, His Excellency founds it upon the necessity of changing the old vicious system injurious to commerce, and mons trously expensive in collection, and the duty of every citizen to contribute to the support of government, according to his means. With respect to the "monstrous" charces of collection, under the old system, I think it right to quote here what Don Francisco Lombardo says in his "mcmoria" of 1039. While speaking of the injurious and demor alizing effects of the internal duties on com merce, he remarks: "The cost of collec tion may be calculated at 19 percent, which no civilized nation spends in the collection of its revenues, wh...

In monarchies, like those of Great Britain and France, the native subject cannot, so long as he contin ues loyal to the sovereign, and obedient to the laws, be expatriated or outlawed : but, when the political safety of the state requires it, such nations can reject from their bosoms the ingrate and the traitor ; and may, by attainder, even disfranchise him and his is sue. Such monarchies may, in like man ner, outlaw and proscribe the disobedient ; or, for the commission of crimes, transport to foreign imprisonment for life or a less term. Yet even then it depends upon the nature and avowed extent of the banishment, whether after all, the expatriated subjec t, will not still be an r2nglishtnan or a French ...
