Two of them, one drake and one dack,were four

pounds. Ths other duck wati accompanied with
24 duckings of frer hatching. The committee
award to Jas. I. Dowsett the premium offered Tor

been difficult for him to have been beaten whatev

There: was but one specimen of Butter exhibited,
which was accompanied with no statement of how
it was produced. It was of fair quality but not
superior to the butter frequently in market. It
va9 not thoronffhly worked and had it been neces
sary for the committee to ascertain ita weight, a
.liberal allowance should have been made for the
weight of the salt it contained more than necessary
lo preserve a fine specimen. Butter of the finest
i quality in color, taste and consistency may be made
upon the Islands, for such specimens have been
een by some members of the committee, bought
ia the market, and until they are produced at th
fair the committee think they will not be justified
in awarding a Premium.
Whether cheese uf first quality can be produced

specimen was found at the fair meriting a special
commendation, much less a Premium
The lady on Kauai, who usually has a specimen

. There being no basket of flowers exhibited, yonr
committee can only regret being unable to award
the premium offered for that purpose.
Your committee are decidedly of opinion, and
would suggest, that a hrger number of premiums
should be offered in this department; at least first
and second premiums for each of the collections
enumerated the present year; and would suggest
the propriety of one or two premiums for the best
Dahlias, likewise a premium for the introduction
of the Nympbea, or white pond lilly.
While but one premium is offered, there is a
feeling, and a legitimate one too, among the hum
bler class of floral cultivators, that it is entirely
useless for them to attempt competition with ama
teur florists upon an extended scale, the conse
quence is, competition is not induced, and the So
ciety loses the gratification anticipated, and fails
to promote the object designed.
Your committee also believe the society can well
afford lo offer an extended list of premiums in this
department when we consider the amount of sales
from this source yearly.
Although professedly an Agricultural Society,
we think its members and the community are ful

Refort or the Jcdges on Miscellaneocs
Among the various articles coming under our
observation, we noticed with the greatest interest
the samples of indigo, No. 47. The presence of
this article in our rair as an Island production, is
peculiarly significant, It points to a source of
wealth to this country, of incalculable value.
In different districts of these Islands, there are
many miles in extent covered with Indigo plant
growing in greatest luxuriance, without cult
tion. Why shouLx this source of wealth ren
undeveloped? Why should this plant, which is bet
ter than a mine ot gold to the country, remain
simply a pest to the grazier and agriculturalist5
We hope the time is near when the mauufacture of
.indigo shall become one of the important branches
"of industry upon the Hawaiian Islands.
We award a premium of $15, for the Indigo.
No. 71 is a very fine silver mounted Saddle, rep
resenting a branch of industry of considerable impor
tance, when we consider the large number of sad

Dissolution of the Legislature.

Majesty dissolved the legislature on the ICthinst.,

The history of the proceedings for the''' fast few
days of the session discloses the fact, that the two
bouses agreed upon the time when they would be
ready to be prorogued, and duly notified His Ma-
jasty. The time fixed was, Thursday the 14th, but
in consequence of the death of Paki, the period
was deferred by his Majesty to Saturday, the ICth
It also appears that on the Bubject of the appro
priation bill, the two bouses disagreed on a large
number of items, and that a joint committee met
and agreed upon a report which was respectively
submitted to the two houses. This report, how
ever, was not fully adopted by the house of repre
sentatives, whereupon the house ot Nobles request
ed another committee of conference, which the
house of representatives refused, contrary to every
principle of parliamentary law.' In addition to
this, the house of nobles proposed a joint session
of the two houses, witkthe hope of so uniting
their views as to pass the appropriation till, and
thus allow the wheels of government to be kept in
motion. But this proposition was rejected by a
majority of two, and thus all further progress was
At this stage of proceedings, the hour for proro
gation arrived, the house of representatives being
still in the midst of their violent discussions
without even having the grace to request His Maj
eslv to nostnone the dav of rroroeation, which
j t r - t -
they themselves, in concurrence with the house o
nobles, had fixed, in accordance with their views
of public business. No other course, thereforo, re
mained for His MajeBty, but to dissolve them, in
accordance with the provision of the constitution
for such an emergency, which is as follows:
44 Art. 29. The King, by and with the advice of
His Privy Council, convenes both houses ot tne
legislature at the seat of government, or a,t a differ
ent Dlace. if that should become dangerous, from an
enemy, or any dangerous disorder; and in case of
disagreement between the two nouses, or Deiween
His Majesty and them, He adjourns, prorogues, or
dissolves them, but not Deyona tne session vi yie
next year : under any great emergency, He may
convene both, or cither of them to extraordinary
In reviewing the circumstances of the case, we
can but regard the course of the majority of the
house as extremely inconsiderate, and to have been
dictated more by passion than judgment. In fact
there seems to have been a stubbornness manifested
by some of the members, that would have been
highly commendable had some great principle been
involved. But the fact is, the members were car
ried away by the excitement of the moment, and
were only brought to their sober senses again when
they found themselves dissolved, and their oppor
tunity for further factious opposition cut off.
This is proved by the fact that on Monday, the
18 tb, a meeting of the late members was convened
and a petition almost unanimously signed, praying
His Majesty to revoke his proclamation, by which
they had been dissolved ; virtually, if not in direct
terms, acknowledging, that they had been wrong
in standing out against every possiblo overture
made to unite their action.
Two members of the house were absent, and had
left the island, else all this delay and expense of a
new election need not have been incurred. The
majority, without the speaker, was but two. Had
the absent members been present, we have no doubt
their votes would havo been with the minority

news; although the details are interesting, we have
only room for the following:

creasing the duties on Sugars, Tea and Coffee; the

making th amount 9d. per'l on all incomes.

yNoBLEs asd Representatives :
The Legislative Session of 1855 is now about to close.
For some of your Acts I thank you in common with j
the meanest of my subjects, for they embrace the inter
ests of all.
Newlw admitted elements of action have operated up
on you, and given to certain or your measures a vitali
ty that authorizes mc to hope much for the future.
t or the relief you have given to the estate of my
Predecessor, for the feeling of respect and love evinced
by you in assuming with alacrity, the expenses of his
obsequies; and for the loyalty you have shown towards
me, and my faintly, I thank you.
Mixed with many circumstances that wnlal way make
the session of 1855 pleasant to reflect upon, there is one
that in it overshadow it forever in the minds of us all.
The death of His Excellency .. Paki, has stamped this
year, and, indeed, removed a pillar of the State. From
your own feelings on the loss of that high chief and
staunch Hawaiian, you may judge of mine. May the
Almighty have us iu His keeping, and bless, and per
petuate the Hawaiian Nation.

Rendezvous for Whaler?.
Governor lligler in his late Message to the LegislaJ
ture or California urges the importance of measure-
tending to render ban s raucisco a place of rendeivou
for the Pacific Whaling fleet. The Governor makes ma
ny favoring suggestions ou the subject, yet on the other
hand there are objections to the proposed project whicl
for the presept at least we think may outweigh the ad
vantage which he so fully sets lorth in an attractive
light. We give the material portion of the Messago iu
The above is from tho New Bedford Whaleman's
Shipping List of April 23.
Geo. Bigler as well as a portion of the San Fran
cisco press, have been driving away at the point of
tryiDg to entice the Pacific whaling fleet to the
port of San Francisco, as their general place of re
emit for a long time past; and in their zeal to ef
fect this end, they have outraged facts, and in many
statements, have endeavored to depreciate the is
lands and to exalt themselves.
We have not thought it worth our while to ex
pose what we have seen of an untruthful character,
not do we now deem it necessary. That "there are
objections to the proposed project," is patent to
all owners and captains of whaleships; and we im
agine the time is not very near, when whaling
owners will trust their ships in a port like San
Francisco, for more reasons than one relating to
crews. A whaleship without a crew, -or with a
crew at San Franciseo prices of seamen's wages,-
would soon wind up the business; and every captain
in the Pacific knows this.
