drew out to him a etrong attachment and love

t4 iruui uii vyiuj w iiim, which biiowcu llicil
fi whenever he appeared in public, where he was
invariably an object of special attraction. lie
has generally enjoyed very good health and shown
no symptoms of disease of any kind, till the at
tack which occurred on the 18th, and which is
thought to have been inflammation of the brain or
water on the brain, a very common disease among
children. The malady made rapid progress, and
t in the course of four day3 it became evident
?! that it would terminate in death.
i On Saturday, at 10, A. M., the child was bap
U tized by Rev. E. W. Clark, according to the
H Episcopal form, in the presence of the King's M
W household, cabinet and chiefs, and named Albert
H Edward Kacikeocli Leiopapa a Kameiiameha,
R Mrs. Synge, the lady of the British Commissioner,
H Htandingas sponsor for Queen Victoria of England,
Mr. Synge, for the Prince of Wales. Great tmt- p
jsfaction has been expressed with the baptism oft

the child frustrated the long proposed plan.
During his illness, the greatest interest has
been manifested by the public to learn the exact
state of his health, and bulletins were daily is
bued. The nature of the disease was such that
the little patient suffered the most intense agony
during his illness, which exhibited itself in
spasms, cramps and shrieks, which no treatment
could alleviate. On the morning of his death,
however, the pain subsided, and the child became
calm and his countenance the image of sweetness
and heavenly radiance. The King and Queen,
broken down with grief, stood by the couch
of their dying boy, and with the.n Mrs. Uishop,
Miss Paki, Mr. Wyllie, and some others. See
ing that the child was dying. His Majesty took P3
the prayer-book and requested Mr. Wyllie to f
read the prayer appropriate for the occasion.
This scene, as the roval croup knelt at the death
bed or Hit child, and joined in supplications to
j their Almighty Father, while the infant spirit
11 peacefully left the body and winged its flight to
its Creator, was one which can" better be irnagin- ti
ed than described.
The booming minute cannon, tolling bells and
half-raised flags announced, at 84 o'clock, to the H
anxious public that the Prince was dead, and
the gri.-f of the native population immediately
exhibited itself in various wajs.
Thus has clocod in one short week an event
entirely unlocked for, which has sent a pall of
gloom into the palace, plucking the chosen flower
1 from the bosoms of the King and Queen, and
destroying the fond hopes of the nation. The
death of no other person could have been so
severe a blow to the King and his people as that
of the Prince of Hawaii. In this youthful
scion were centered the hojies of his parents, and
to him the eyes of the whole nation turned as the
prospective ruler of Hawaii. In him, all the
plans of His Majesty appeared to center he was
the idol of all. Kut these plans are prematurely
destroyed, all these fond hopes are crushed by an
over-ruling Providence, inscrutible, wise and
good, whose way9 are not a9 our ways, and
j whose thoughts arc not as our thoughts." To
supremo will let us all bow, and acknowledge
that Ha is the Sovereign of all, and tho llulcr of
the Universe. How true it is that 44 man rro-
I poses, but God disposes."
1 Mot-t devoutly do we pray that this heavy afflic-
1 i i . i -
lion may ne accompaniea wun us oiessings, not
only to tho broken hearts of the bereaved royal
parents, who havo watched over their child with
a devotion which has never been surpassed, but
4 to the whole nation. What parent, who has
;j ever been called on to yield up to the summons
j of deathis idolized child, can fail to sympathize
with our afflicted sovereigns, or fail to offer up a
J prayer in their behalf, that this blow may be
sanctified to their temporal and spiritual happi-
3 ness, and to the good of their peoplo. We feel
J that they have tho deepest sympathy of all in this
trial of the death of one so dear to the whole
God thought it best to take him hence.
Or rise he'd not have died
Remember 'twas an all-g.od God
Who took him from your side.
Weep not for him who in life's morn
Hath from your circle fled ;
He wa too fair and good for earth,
Then why should tears he shed.
It seems as if Providence had selected this very
time for this sad event, for some wise purpose, 51
which may not be clear to us now, but of which U
the future may develope the meaning. Why it
should have happened just at this juncture, when
more than usual political feeling has been exist
ing, when His Majesty was without a regular
Cabinet, and just about the period which had
been sot for the arrival of Bishop Staley and the
baptism of the Prince with full ceremonies, may
appear inexplicable. Had it occurred a few
months earlier or even a few months later, it
might not have been accompanied with so many
circumstances indicating that Providence Las
some wise end in view.
rT There has been as jet no appointment of a new
ministry, nor could the public well expect one to be
in iJe during such an uu looked fur event, as has just
occurred. In due time tbe appointment will be an-

The great lesson taught by this Legislature is
the Responsibility of Ministers to the Peo-h
ple. This has for centuries been the practice
onrl rula in Tnrrluriit irir1 in niriut nrViff PAnntrttia
I where the ministry retire the moment they cease 3
'4 to obey or coincide with the people, who are in ga
I reality the source of their power, though ap-M
K pointed by the sovereign. Uut heretofore no E
r . sn - -1
Lliule has prevailed here, owing doubtless to the
rs fact that our system of government has hardly i
E becomo developed. It the responsibility of pub-
ofBcers to the representatives of the people
R has been demonstrated and established by this
i session's work, it is worth all and more than it
rs has cost. Not merely Ministers, but iudcres and
all other officers must now bear in mind that
they are directly accountable to the people, as in
other monarchical government, for their offi-
cial conduct. The result will bo beneficial in I

If this result follows the uction of the Represen-
K tatives, all must concede that they have done a
4-1 ' H
H good work, and that this body is one of the bul-
vyurKS ot miw;uiu.u rrecuom.
There appears to be a necessity for an increase

present during the late session has not been

a multitude of councillors there is wisdom
1 a truism that applies most forcibly to this
legislative body. As it now is, the number
is so slim that it is often difficult to gather a
Lj quorum, and when there is one, the attendance
is so small that tho tendency is towards indeco- li

J2T The deep interest taken by the pnblio in the
young Prince, was foroiblj shown in the closing of
all stores, and an entire suspension of all business
immediately on the announcement of his deiith on
Wednesday; a stillness and gloom appeared to possess
the oity. II. B. M.s ship Termagant fired a Royal
minute salute, and she, as also the other ships in
port, wore their colors at half mast. Passing the
engine house of Hawaii No. 4, of which the Prince
was a member, we noticed it draped heavily in
mourning, as were also the engine, hose-cart, and the
little chair in which he rode during the firemen's par
ade a few months ago. The other engine-houses were
also dressed in mourning. No arrangements have
been made for the funeral, and it will probably not
take place for some days.
