A evening journal contain information of considerable importance have from various sources late Sclia Hie and important information in regard t the pending treaty for the annexation0 of tin Sandwich islands. Our readers will i Mem her the intelligence which we published of this subject a Low weeks since a a 1 hat s treaty had been informally agreed to 1 a tween the government of the islands on the ont hand and or. Gregg the american agent on the other that on the Transfer being per tested an annuity was to be Pai l to the Royal family and tie leading Nobles and that annexation was generally popular with Resi dents and natives and Only Streun u sly opposed by Prim e Alexander the heir apparent a few of his imm Diate associates an i a Pur Tion of the european merchants and residents of the islands. This up posit n threatened to defeat the project i he Prince was implacable the real hut not the avowed cause of his Hostil Ity being based upon the fact that while tra Velling in this country a few years since and when i Board of a new York and Huston Steamboat lie was not permitted to take a seat at the supper table on account of his color the officious Steward who passe l this indignity upon the Prince Little dreamed that it remembrance would constitute the chief difficulty in the was of securing a new state t tin Inion. It such is the fact and it is no secret in Honolulu. That insult still rankles in the breast of the Prince. He would prefer to have the islands pass into the hands of England where prejudice is less potent and from whom he could Hope to retain his titles and dignities which lie seems to hold in greater esteem than the annuity which annexation to the i United states would secure to him. I Bis also is Well understood although it has , probably been officially promulgated. Event have recently transpired however which will change the whole current of the Princess thoughts and secure his powerful support for the very treat which lie has thus far strenuously opposed. Iii bag the Early part of september the English us at Honolulu received a dispatch from his government directing him to inform the King that in the event of any disturbance in the islands he would receive no Aid from the English government whose entire resources were required for Tho prosecution of tin War with Russia. This dispatch had not been communicated to the King As late As tin loth of september a his majesty had lived too High during the preceding week to be presentable. But it soon would be communicated and it was believed that it would have an important influence not merely upon the mind of the King but upon Itiat of the Prince who had relied with great Confidence upon the assistance of the English government in the event of an Effort to compel him to acquiesce in the treaty. But As he was absent from t lie scat of government it was not positively known How he would be a elected by the intelligence. It had however produced a marked change in the View of the English Herman and other residents win like the i Prince. Had opposed annexation. Many of them we Are assured immediately became As strenuously in favor As they had Ben previously opposed to the treaty and they now frankly declare that if they cannot count upon the Protection of the Lin of England they Are ready to place themselves under the wings of the american Eagle. Thus matters stood As late As the Middle of september. The Only Point of difference remaining Between our agent and the hawaiian government appears t be in regard to the time and manner of admission. 1 hat government desire to have practical annexation Delorid for a year or eighteen months so that in the meantime a Republican form t government May be adopted so that at tin end of that Peri d the islands May me in As a full fledged state. But or. Gregg acting under instructions probably annexation to be immediate As a territory alter which a state Constitution May be turned by the people. He urge this Niode of annexation on the ground that it the other course should he attempted designing men might prevent the adoption i a Eon Statuti n embodying the principles of republicanism As understood in this country. This however is quite improbable. 1 he people of the islands Ami particularly those who conduct the government would take can no such apprehended result would follow. But after All. This is a Point of but Little importance and should it and will not. Probable be allowed to interfere with the Only real question pending the annexation in some form of the islands to the 1 in Ted states. / a � ii 1 lie Viii Israr of Riu Muce i. Maui. No was a Boston lawyer the minister of for eign Iolati in. Or. Wyllie a Scotchman and formerly merchant at Mazatlan and the minister of Public instruction or. Arm Strong formerly a Clergyman in a Pennsyl Vania. All comm with the King in their de Iro to have the islands annexed As a state principally to avoid the agitation of the question of slavery which they apprehend cum up it they have to to rough tie territorial Crucible. If i possible that tie motives of Trio a entertaining tip be Coli Elict Fig views arc not altogether disinterested. Indeed it is supposed that or. Gregg would lie Verv Well pleased with the appointment is of those who have a voice in the preliminary adjustment of this question May incline them annexation is deemed a fixed tact. This Lias been determined upon by the people and they will accomplish their wish peaceably if they can Lois ably it Thev must unless some other Power than the hawaiian government shall interpose t prevent what is so ardently desired. But no one supposes that it will be necessary to re sort to Force for the chiefs know very Well that if annexation should he preceded by a revolution they would lose not Only their promised Rich annuities but their vast land 1 de possessions now worthless but which in i the event of annexation would become to them mines of wealth. Just previous to our last advices the Brit ish Consul had secured an audience with the King and a messenger was forthwith Dis patched for Prince Alexander by his order Tor the immediate return of the Prince and everyone in the secrets of the government were confident that the treaty would be signed in a very few Days after his return be cause when he left on his journey the policy of the English government now developed had not transpired and As he depended up on the assistance of that government to Avert annexation to the United state.-, he will it is believed on seeing the futility of that Hope no longer combat destiny.
