The Convention met at 11 A. M., His M.ijty Lciu g
Vic PresMent Kol.erton coromentcd upon the re
port f the proceedings of the Convention publishe I
in the ,i,lvfrtitr of that day, and asked the Secre
tary if he furnished that report, or if he knew who

rrport. Jude Robertson then stated that tome parts
of it were calculated to convey a wrons imprest ion,
specially pome emissions in it. The Secretary re
pliel that he triji thf? servant of the Convention and
if they considered that the positions of Secretary and
Reporter were incompatible with each other, he

be was responsible tor trie reports in the .f.rerner,
an 1 thought that this was not the place to animad

His Ex. It C. Willis siid that it was a delicate
and important position to fulfil reporting what wag
dune in Convention : he thought that the Secretary
ha I discharged hi duties as Secretary properly.

Hon. C R. Bishop wihed to insert in his amend
ment to Article 15th. the words "and of a majority
of the whole 1'iivy Council," after the words " con
currence of all the Cabinet."
Mr. Duwsctt moved to amend this amendment by
e'r'kin out the words the decease of the Sovereign
or Inher public disaster. The first phrase implied
fear that, at sj.ne time, there miht not be ia the na
tion uflicieut regird fr tiie King to bury him, and
the. latter clause was too broad.
tEs Ex II C. Vyllie did not approve of the Privy
Coaocil having a share in this matter ; all the re
sponsibility should be upon the Cabinet ; besides in
vasion or rebellion are sulleu a&iirs, and it would
fft;er the Minis'ry to have to assemb'e all the Privy
Cirtncil before any action could be taken.
Dr. JqU said he was astonished when the Minis
try preseuttd the article iu its present shape, and it
Defied amendment, but the phrase " public disas
ter.' im capable of bein: stretcheJ to cover a great
deL For insane?, if the Teachers aJvertised for
by the liiih -p of Honolulu had come out. would not
the Ministry feel obliged to appropriate money for
their expenses ? This Convention might be called a
public disaster" and a certain sum applied for the
daily pay of its members. We are seeking to guard
the Public Treasury" not the King's money, as it '
has been called
The .Minister of Finance siJ that Dr. Ju lJ was
not fair in his commenta. There was no occasion for
laughter. He explained that the Bishop was promis-
ed the office of l'resiJent of the Doard cf Education i
iu September last, and the notice hid been sent to
Ku;:'.an 1 on that expectation tut that was under
the late King, and the present Ministry are Dot re
possible for it.
lion C. IL Bishop advocated his amendment at
Hn. l Kalalciaa sail tht the members of the
1'rivy Council did not wish this burden imposed upon
them, an roost of them were also members cf the
Howse of Xobleu, and they would have to consider
ite same questions twice.
Hon. G. M. Robertson sail that Mr. Bishop's
amendment did not give the Legislature any power
to s inctiou these expenditures by a Bill of Indem
nity, lie IlLel the amendment, for it fixed the re
sp.ji .sibilify upon the Ministry.
H. IL II. the Kub'ma 'ni Bi.j the people should be
jealous of the public monevt, and this article did not
mu:? concern the Xobles. He gave numerous in
s'ai ce when ru Idea expenditures, unprovided for,
had Uea deemed necessary and bad been made, and
the Legislature bad always ratiSed them.
Mr. Bishop struck out the clause decease of the
Sovertiri, and Mr. Dowsettand Dr. Judd withdrew
the.r amendments, and Article loth passed, as

cusioii and passage, and .ifler n long .lrti vte on the
propriety of postponement, in whioh many iiit'inbers
of I Ii is Coiitinfioii took pail, the motion to do this
lul.- l, uud the article pas-id with the amendment.
Article 11.11 was read and lr. Judl ollerid an
amen laienl, to erae the words Every marriage kj
Contracted ahull be void, un I every person t-o attempt
ing 10 contract marriage," tin I read thus, " And the
person so contracting marriage may by proclama
tion," A.C. He did not wi-h the King to hate tin
power, by a mere word, to annul the sucred contract
of matt imoliy.
The Attorney General remarked that Hie marriages
of the King nnd the Royal Family concerned the
entire nation, and the object of this article was to
gitc the nation some control over these marriage.
I'nvate persons tuny dispose of their jersoi.s and
their pioperty us they please, but Kings mu-t coii
huit the wtl.'are of the nation in their alliances.
In England the Royal Family cannot marry subjects
or K.Miian Catholics.
J Hon. C. U. Uishcp favored the amendment ; if
those who arc to succeed to the Throne marry with
out the consent of he reigning Sovereign, lit them
f understand that ti ey thereby u nder themselves lia
ble to lose this right, but let the marriage be pre
Mr. Ivu iea opposed the article as it stoo 1, us it im
posed a double punishment upon those who sbull
Mr. Green said that the King should not have the
power to annul the laws of God and of man which
golt'iuni.e the contruct of marriage.
The Article, with the amendment, then passu ! the
Delegates and Nobles.
Article iMth. with the words ' before being pro
claimed" after the words "nu l His Successor shall,"
was then read.
Mr. I. II. Hitchct ck asked if the wording was as
close as could be made, and if theie was no chance
for some key hole being found in this Aiticle ns well
ns in article 'Jl of the Constitution of 1S.VJ.
The Attorney General asked how could this be
worded stronger ?
Mr. C. II. Judd said suppose the Proclamation be
not made, then could not a Convention like this
be called to make a new Constitution before the King
should lake oath.
Atl.-Gem ral replied that the King is not consid
ered ns dead until so announced by Proclamation.
If any one can devise language stronger we should
like to have it.
Mr. Green. "No one shall sit upon the Throne
until he has taken the following oath," would be
Mr. Koakanu thought that the King should be re
quired merely to approve of, not swear to support the
Constitution. The article was then put uud pa ssed
the I wo Estates.
Articles llith. L'Gth, L'7th. 'JSth, 20th and 30th
were then real and passed the Two Estates.
Article Slt was read and Dr. Ju Id remarked upon
it. that the ofHceof Kuhiua Nui existed from nucieut
time, that there had lieen three Koihu Miami's hold-
I ing the position. When Kamehameha III. created
ether Ministers with special Departments, he took
ic Kuhina Nut certain towers and responsi
bilities, leaving him only the name and a power of
Veto. The present King wishes to abolish this office
altogether, and I approve of it, provided the remain
ing share of responsibiliy is transferred to the Min
istry. '1 Le Convention then adjourned until to-morrow.
Wid.1)AY, August Sd. 1SG4.
The Convention met at 11 A. M., His Majesty
lcins absent. Prayer by the Chaplain. Minutes
J-r- Green moved to suspend the rules, so that
leave be granted hirn to read a petition, he stating
that this was in reference to a grievance which litis
lody and this body alone can redress. The Vice
President said that this Convention had no power to
entertain petitions and redress grievances, and there
was no provision for them in the rules.
Mr. Green stated that it was a petition from N.
Knna. in regard to the election of their Delegate.
i The Vice President said that this explanation al .
I tcred the case, and the inotiou to suspend the rules,
j was put nnd resulted in a tie, the rules requiring a
I two-third vote for this purpose.
Dr. Juld proposed this amendment to Article 31.
In the third line to add the words " for his nets"
after the word responsible," and in the seventh
line to substitute the words "by the Cabinet" in
place of the words " in the mode prescribed by law."
The Minister of Finance stated that the Ministry
believed in their individual responsibility in the de
tails of each department, and collective responsibility
as regards the policy of the government. The Minis
try are not responsible for this Convention, they did
not cill it, nor have they b?en asked to pass an opin
ion in it. His Majesty had stated in Convention that
I Lis Ministers were not responsible for his not taking
the oath, and H was here only that he has stated
that he would not take the oath, and that the door to
Legislative action was thereby closed. The Ministry
were anxious to proceed with the work and to forever
close in this couutry. the era of extra-Constitutional
Dr. Judd said that if the Ministry were willing to
hare the responsibility previously held by the Ku
hina Nut put upon them, they should proceed to pass
the amendment. He could prove to satisfaction, he
thought, that the 94th Article gave the Ministty, not
the King, no right to assume the position that the
taking of the oath was thus op'iocal.
Mr. Green approved of the amendment, as its
object was to transfer more responsibility lo the
Cabinet. In England, if any disagreement occurred
between the Crown and the Ministry, they resigned,
also when their measures were defeated in the House
r f Commons. Here either the Ministry must approve
of the measure, shoulder the whole responsibility
and retain their offices, or, if they disapprove of the
measure, they must resign.
The Minister of Finance paid that the House of
Commons had defeated the Ministry of England 1'2
r 15 times, and they have net resigned; they only
do to when n vote or want of confidence is passed.
ICepcatedly, the Ministers of this Vingdoin have re
tained their portfolios notwithstanding great outside
pressure. What was meant by the words " all his
acts' official acts or every act ?
His llx. II C. Wyliie said that the responsibility of
Ministers ought to be very strict, as laid down by
Blackstone and the written Constitution cf Belgium.
There must be responsibility for wrong somewhere
and as the Constitution holds the King incapable of
wroug, lhr Cabinet Ministers ought to be held respon
sible. He agreed with the Delegate from Honolulu,
iu the view that the setting aside of the cilice of Ku
hina Xui. should impose his duties and powers upon
the Ministers, except that of veto upon the King's
acts, which was an anomaly in a constitutional gov
ernment. This Convention could not be called an
injury to the nation, as most of those who have op
posed it have admitted that the Constitution was
defective. He had in 18G2, moved a Joint Resolu
tion to have three Corani'ssioners appointed lo revise
the Constitution, it passed the Nobles but failed iu
Mr. Koakanu wished to biTC the Ministry responsi
ble for their own acts of disobedience or wrong, as
Jonah" and Anauaiaa" were made responsible.
Judge Robertson approved of the article as it
tood. If the amendment was paNard, th King
could do nothing without thr approval of all ht
Cabinet, nt by law ho ran do many thing without
their approval, as the appointment of certain olncial".
Mrwfi Ckiko and Kahnlrauhu approved of the
article as it wa. Mr. Kepoikai thought the Minis
ter ahotil I aigti the law as wrll a tht King.
Hon. C. K. Itiahop liked the lant part of the amend
mriit. The King nhoul I not, ns now, be reKinlb!e
for certain npoiiitmrnt J, a that of l.'tm"er
Grnen.1, w herein the Collector General was nomin
ated by lb Minister of Finance. If the-e change
make conflict with the Civil lode, that can be regu
lated. Mr. Green look th cae .f the Governors c f the
Iland, which fficera are left out in thin revision
Ihey have the nominating of certain judge-; if, after
f liia. the King appoints idem and Ihey prove to be a
lisgrace, who can be binned ? Not the K ing, because
he is above law.

leaving out tho last pirl of the article, and thus
making the Ministry rcjKitiHihU. for all the official

This was put to the IMegitrs and Nobles, and
Article 32d passed without discussion.
Article 33d was read, and it was proposed by Mr.
Martin. In amend it by hating the regency composed
of native born chiefs," and by ad ling to the Cibi
net C.uiicil, the words "and Privy Council," and
the propriety of prescribing any limits within which
the ehoice of a regent or regency should bo made,
was discussed at considerable length, nnd also whether
the King ought to leave his kingdom iu any circum
stances. The amendments were tabled and tho article passed
the Delegates and Nobles without change.
Articles 3 Ith, 3"th, 30th were I hen passed in the
Article 37th was read, rnd various amendments
were proposed to insert the words " and Privy Coun

A Little Louie. I.oy ieull y Applicil,
To the Editor of the . C. Advertiser :
The Attorney-General accused an honorable Dele
gate of stigmatizing the profession of the law to
which he had devoted one of his hons. This was
e.iid with the usual air of triumph and lex arrogance
pertaining to those of a Harassing disposition. Let
us see if the stigmatic words uttered by the Delegate
were far from the real truth a9 generally understood
among men :
Law is usually styled n ' science" and the " per
fection of reason." That is, the science of law is
the perfectioa of reason." It is not a "science,"
but on the contrary is very far from it, as will soon
be seen; neither is it the "perfection of reason,"
though, in theory, there is more show of tb.lt. Hu
man justice is the ultimate object cf the whole
"science" nnd paraphernalia of the law. Divine
justice is never thought of ; indeed, the longissimus
membrum Icgis amongst us would not have the au
dacity to say that.
Well, what is Human Justice ? It is the art. or
'science" of applying the principles of common law
and the existing statutes to the affairs of men. Now
common law is not always the same in the same
country, and is very dittvrent in ditlerent countries,
and statute laws, constitutions included, are liable
to change every year. Human justice is always
shaped to conform to common and statute law, there
fore that justice is variable. Then, is law or justice
"science?" Established science an I truth are
convertible terms and invariable, but it is seen that
law is convertible with lie, or something very much
like it. A very little experience will teach any one
that the science and profession cf law, is, of all pro
fessions nnd crafts, the shortest remove from barbar
ism, and hence the lowest occupation of civilized
man. That great and good minds hive been devoted
to law-craft, no one will deny, and if they prove in
corruptible, they are said, fo honor their proftssion !
No person yet ever declared that Newton or Cuvier
honored science, or that Arkwright or Fulton honor
ed mechanics. Scienccand nnchanics uuder Divine
Wisdom created the Universe, and have existed since
the first song of creation, but law, human justice,
was born of the basest elements of mau and has becu
his principle torment since Cain escaped the law, or
justice. Husbandry, too, as the term goes, wan born
of man, but its success and perfection involves a
knowledge of every other science (except law) and
mechanical principle which tend to elevate the work
er; but law involves no science or mechanical princi
ple, nothing but cuteuess and sophistry; hence it
serves only to degrade the lawyer, unless he is brim
stone proof. Law, in its proper cense, concerns no
attribute of the soul, except the intellect, and has
no material relation except to the purse, uud whoever
steals that, "steals Iraah." Coos.'irnciousne.s. love
of truth, love of God, country or man, never prompt
ed a airigU individual to adopt the profusion of the
law. Whoever lias a Utile learning and mental
acutmr-tin may Micn d In thai prof.-u.iot), do honor to
l if he is to. hie min led, but he run never degrade if,
however base be majr be. Satan Could m l do that.

TWO WEEKS LATER
j By the clipper bark Onward, letnpfead, of the
Hawaiian I'.ickct Line, !." day? passage from San
Franf i-r.ii, we have received files fiom
San Krimei4:'i to July 10th,

The Oiiu ard had :i long passage over 'nn Fran
cisco, having left here on the Ifth cf June find
arriving nt that port on the '.th of July making
'M days. The l"inf Ili'dur had not arrived up to
the 10th cf July '3i days out.
The news by this packet is of unusual importance
and in In est.
The naval engagement between the Alalia ma and
A'earsarge, resulting in sinking the former ship, is
given iu full on our first page. Semmcs bonMs that

which is not at till improbable, ns be has smypa

Another Ilchrl It aid in Virginia.
On the 4th cf July, some 23,000 rebels under
Breckinridge, entered Maryland from Virginia, and
during the lollowing ten days nearly overrun the
State, tearing up railroads, destroying bi idges, burn,
ing houses and driving off cattle and horses for Lee's
unity. They made their headquarters nt Rockville,
a small village about 15 miles north-wcM of Wash
ington. On the Oth cf July, the Union forces sent
from Washington, under Gen. Lew. Wallace, met
l hem on the Motiocacy river, were defeated by the
rebels, and compelled to retreat towards Baltimore.
From the lengthy telegrams relating to the raid, we
i select the following :
UjH.TiM'iitr. July 11. The news from Washington is exciting.
Tin: Star says that skirmishing on the KnckviJc road coin-
meiiced at no early hour thin forriHK.n, mul whs continued ly
tin advance of the rein I force to a point aWout four miles w-st
of Teul3'toivii, where their proyn ji on t!iat road was stopped
mul th. y ilH:!piM'"rel in some other direction. Huhs-ueiitly
we hear of them sUirinishin between 11 and 12 o'clock on ami
around the Seventh street turnpike, near the Claret farm and
residence of F. P. Hiair. It is reported to-day that tin: reliels
had hurned the residence of Mr. Hlair. There were 800 infantry
in force tneainM-d al Itockville lat night.
Hundreds of panic-stricken refugees are arriving to day from
the vicinity of Kdward's Kerry, who report the rels-ls crossing
nortl.war.1 of that toint yesterday and to-day in lanie. tiuinVteru,
estimated at from 1'2,0jO V) S0.000. Ilrcckiiiridjre is believed to
lie in command of their advance in this direction, whilst
Iin' iMlen command the cavalry, now hatiin round the
fortification-!. All was quiet in front of our pickt-U Uon what
ii known a th; Kiver Koad up to no .n to-day.
The ,S7ir also saya that tie: numbers and purposes of the
invading force is confusing and conflicting. It is said the rebe
force is net of weight sullicieiit to ond'.-rtake a serious attack
upon the fortifications ut Washington, and that it is not their
purpose to do so. 1'rr contra, we have just received the
following from sources which, on repeated isrcasions, had the
earliest and mot accurate information of rebel movements from
Virginia. The information from this quarter is as f illows : Thj
rebel army of invasion marched down the vail- y 4i,000 strong,
including MOOO cavalry, under roiimsnnd of Itrcckinralire. Kan
fsom nnd ImHodeii. McCauslan.l and I.ongstreet were nt Gordons
ville on Tuesday last, w ith additional forces for the reb.-l army
of invasion, and for the purnge th it the army should attempt
the capture of Wawliiiigt.-ti by surprise. The Virginia Central
Uailroad is repaired, running frotn Richmond to Staunton.
A party of 400 or 500 ret Is d ished into U-irnstown, five mile
north of Kockville. ye-terday morning, and after stealing all th-j
cattle and horses they could find. 1 ft in the direction of Fred
erick. Before doing so, however, they sent to the Virginia sid
a!l the plunder. Persons from the. upper fords report the
relM'W as conveying a large number of cattle, horses, hogs nnd
stl,eep stolen troin farmers along the river across into Vir
ginia. Kvtry ford is held by a small rein I tore, and it is
estimated that they have already carried (iff several thousand
head of cattle and from S,000 to 10.000 horses. The relK-ls
plundered indiscriminately, making no distinction between
Unionists and Southern sympathisers.
lutes-t information it appears that Breckinridge crossed above
Ii trior's Kerry, and operated at his lfciure west i f South
Mountain, with the view of drawing our forces in that direction,
to enable the enemy, wi:h a large body of troops, t,o cross at
Edward's Ferry, so as to flank and capture our commands
advancing n Breckinridge. The whole reWl force united this
side of Frederick, and commenced operating on our lines of com
munication to and from Baltimore. Our cavalry in coming
to-day Iiom Leesburg, saw no rebels. A few guerrillas were
seen prowling alwut Fairfax. Leyal rc.-idents of that vicinity
still remain upon ther farms.
A despatch from Baltimore- today says the rebel cavalry
burned the residence of tlov. Bradford, this moriiinj-, four miles
from the city. A squad of rebels came to the house ami order
ed out the family, who were only permitted to take a few
valuables with them, and then fired the house. 1 he Governor
w as in the city ut the time. The rebels are now operating on
the Philadelphia road.
Si-. Yoiik, July 12. The World prints the following ex
tract i-on a private letter, dated Jiexington, June 12th : 1
terday marched from Midway, being quickened as
advanceoVjJhe sound of Crook's puns engaged with McCii
land, who his." place. They defended it with great obstimi
tract yvi a private letter, dated lA?xnvton, June 12th : es-
burning the l7SfMnd playing on the hill? as we came up.
with shell, and bushWefkers tired from Indnn 1 every tree.
This was madness on their part, as we had be :ten them lfore
leing joined by Gens. Cr.iok and Averiil, and now, of course,
were able to whip them again. It seems, however, that
McCauslau'l was waiting fr Breckinridge, who had been
detached with his divirdau from Lee's army to drive us back, or
at least to hold us between thern and Bicbmnnd or Lynchburg,
whichever we struck for. The supposed plan is to get the
broken brigades of the va'.ley under Imi-oder, Jenkins. Mn-fl.-ville.
J.-ickson, McCauandT Jones, etc., rallied together, and
j. lining with the division of Lee's veterans, give us another
trial for the valley. This morning we destroyed the Virginia
Military Institute. To-morrow we move at daylight, but have
ro idea in what direction, t'ur situation is pressing and critical.
If Ix-e is not fully employed by Grant, he can send down
troops enough i i the Lynchburg railroad to overwhelm us ;
but if Grant will hold all his forces in Bichmo .d, this column
ca.i make the rebel capital untenable iu a few day, by cutting
otr the last main artery of supply.
The raiders have destroy e 1 all the lines of telegraph on Ce
turnpike between Philadelphia and Baltimore.
Baltimore, July 13 Confidence has been restored here,
and the anxiety now is that the enemy may not escape fmin
the State without leirg punished. The destination of a large
force f.f retiel cavalry that crossed the railroad at Beitsville and
lt:.olensburg is not known. Kebel sympathisers predict that
they will move on Point Lookout and release the 20,000 rebel
prisoners oonSned there.
New York, July 13. The Evening i.f ha' been informed
by a gentleman from l'Hllimore. that the I att'e f.f Monocacy,
although a defeat, was invaluable in its results to Baltimore, as
it held the rclels in cheek tiil the authorities could make ar
rangements t;i repel the attack.
Gov. Bradford's call was rvspond-d to by thousands. When
the le!ls rung at midivght 6.000 men hastened to the pt.aoe f.f
Diceting. Among them were 14 veterans of 1S12, who had
aided iu repelling the British invaders.
BaLTIMOKK. July 134 P. M. The boat which left Washing
ton this in. Tiling h.l arrived. All doing well. Yesterday was
rather a gloomy day, and thre was a great deal of uneaitiess
among the citizens. Tin re has beeu fighting out on the
S-venth-sdreet road. The rebels were try ing to capture Fort
U.'ward. but we stiil hold it. This morning confidence was re
store.! and ail was C msidered perfftiy safe.
1'iiii.iPi i.rni a. July 14 special dispatch to the En-fuirtr
from Washington, tins morning, says : Th- enemy began to re
treat across the Potomac at midnight. They had held Kock
ville, five miles f:ni the IVtomoc, as their base of ojH'ratiotis.
This morning our forces started in pursuit. They are carrying
off tti.-ir plunder, as well as impressed citizens with them. Our
losses ultogethi r will not exceed 500. We have made consid
WASiusi.ro. July 10. A.ld't'onal alarm was occasioned on
the Virginia si te of the Potomac yesterday by report that the

y.-t verifled, l-ut it is not thought impossible. And also that the
designs of iho rebels are to con-.aiaii I the gaps and keep ej'ii
