at which much attention was ilrawn to the leni.nl

stated that tliere wa a preat outcrj- or protest from

nairnian of the rn. tiiin. p-jve a tril.ute of reiet to
William Thon.j.sMi ,ne of tlie i.rineii.al lea.l-M
the Maori " rel llii.n " who, he iid. had lovnie
iisuUivU-I to Lriti-h rule, lmu.-e he could not have
the j-.wer praiited for l.reventing drink l-ins con
veyed up the Waikato ; hence h:s desire to have a
kinp and laws of their own. so that the Maori rare
might not tiecome er.tinct by the partaking of strong
drink. Many tribe of aborigines were in-it..i.
who had laconic or were daily looming extinct 1-e-fore
the white man's drink. It was declared tliat the
f.n!y way to preserve the noble nice of Xew Zealanl
t rs was to keep tn.ng drink from them. These ob
servations will, in many re-jiects, apj.ly to the Ha
waiian.", a kiiflivl race. Tlie native meuiben of the
Legislature have invariably, almost to a man, leen
in f ivor of stringent laws against the sale of intoxi
cating drinks, but, unfortunately, the laws they have
enacted have, in a great degree, proved inojrative,
and strong drink, combined with other causes, in fast
doing death's work. It is stated that the Maori war
has ct tlie British Government over three millions
of jMjimds or S HjO.OOu!

and the only contest was lietweoii the rtsjiective par-
tin nominating the cuiulitlatea for the r option of
Fecund Assistant. Tlie excitement r.iu liih, mid a
band of music was in attendance, the performances of
which were occasionally varied by iuiirouiitu stump
epei-ches by firemen, advocating the claims of the
rival candidates. It Is to lie regretted that here out
in mid-l'acific, thousands of miles away from the
United States, the issues of party known there as
Liuoii and " fn-cexh " should li-re le made to
enter into a Firemen's election. In this connec-
tion it may lie asked why it is that in Honolulu an
occasion like that of .Mom lay night, wherein the pub-
lie are interested, cannot pass oi!' without the pouring
out of strong drink ? The practice is a bad one iu
all resiects, ami the cllects injurious.

Evanoklical Association. This body is now in
scssion at the Kawaiahao Church, having commenced
its laliors mi Tuesday last. One noticeable feature
in these gatherings of the clergy of late years, is the
increased nuuila-r of native ordained preachers who
take jiart in the declarations. At the present nieet-
ng there are some twelve or fifteen Hawaiian pastors,
and throughout the Islands there are about twenty
five native preachers of the Gospel. It was formerly
the firm opinion of many of the older missionaries
that the Hawaiian could never become enlightened
and stable enough to lie entrusted with the sacred
office of the Ministry, without necessifciting the per-
jietual sujiervision and watchfulness of his white
brother. A change of opinion in this respect has
Leon wrenght since then, and the receding generation
of the original missionaries now look to the Hawaiians
themselves for the successors in the pastoral relation

He was attended upon by Dr. Kennedy, whose office is
close by, and recovered sufficiently to lie taken to his
Lome, shortly after reaching which however, he was
taken with another fit ami expired. No post molten
examination was held, although iu almost any other
country there would have leeu one, and it is left to
supposition as to whether he died of apjvoplexy, con
gestion of the brain, heart disease, or oisou.

Capillary Attraction. A certain Captain of a
j coaster, who is well known in this community, has a
l.nl.1 rd:ice " on the top of his head, where th wool
; ought to grow." lie had tried various kinds of
, hair oil to resuscitate the expiring crop, but without
' avail, when some kind friend mentioned. to him Dr.
j Jayne's Comjioun.L lie made a straight wake to
: Castle & Cooke's, where lie obtained but did not
' purth:tse, and was presented with three bottles of
; the mixture. Half a Itottle was used on his head
j with surprising results, but aecidcntly the other half
was spilled on tlie lid of his chest. The skipper
! asserts, with a very plausible kind of expression of
! countenance, that the accidental application of the oil
' aforesaid has resulted in a fine growth of young hair
! on the chest, turning it into a first-class hair trunk.
We are half inclined to think that he made n mistake,
and that what he took for hair was fine-cu7 tobacco.

Should this be cntei tabled, another Congress will
probably assemble at Inidon to secure its for
mal adoption and universal observance by all tin
Great Powers; but it is thought that even this
proposition will be unsuccessful in securing the
maintenance of peace.
The llrruld's London special says the fortress of

In the House of Commons, on the evenig of the

accordance with constitutional usage in their min-
j were ready to vindicate to Parliament and before
j the country. The matter had become very critical,
and ministers were informed every moment, by
telegraph and otherwise, of the increasing gravity
of the case, lie (Lord Stanley) couldn't take upon
himself to postpone or delay a movement dreaded
by all interests and proposed in conference, when
by so doing he would most likely prevent alto
gether the maturing and giving expression to any
settlement with reference to the guarantee of
the neutrality of Luxemburg. He (Lord Stanley)
regretted to observe that the Commons should
show any susceptibility in regard to the action of
the Cabinet, for he also wanted guarantee. Mem
bers of the house were aware that England and
what was an uncommon occurence the remainder
of the great powers, who were parties to the Lux
emburg Beige-Holland treaty of 1831) had absolute
ly guaranteed the territory of Luxemburg to the
King of Holland at that time. What the Govern
ment had now done was merely to adopt that
guarantee to present the circumstances of the case
and render it efficacious in view of the changes
which had taken place in tho German Confedera
tion. Ministers had not extended, but, on the con
trary, had rather limited the guarantee incurred in
thirty-five, and by that action contracted the re
sponsibility which the country sustained under it.

closed on the 17th April by the King, whose speech
expressed infinite satisfaction at seeing around him
the members of the House, and congratulated them
upon having established upon a solid foundation a
Constitution, whose developments they would leave
to future federal authorities, finished with attributes
indispensable, but sufficient for the prosperity and
power of the Confederation. Individual States,
whoso future is guaranteed by the totality of the
Bund, have retained their freedom of action in all
departments, where variety of developments is in
dispensable, and a salutary popular representation
is secured by that co-operation in carrving out the
great national objects which correspond to tho
spirit of existing acquisitions of country, and the
necessity of the Government to see their action
supported by the agreement of the German people.
The time has arrived when the German Fatherland
is able to uphold its place and its rights, and its
dignity, by its own collective strength and national
self-consciousness, which has met with a powerful
echo from all quarters of Germany. None the less,
however, are all the governments and people of
Germany unanimous in the feeling that the retain
ed power of the nation has, above all things, to
uphold its significance by rendering secure all the
blessings of peace. The King closed by asking
God to bestow a blessing upon the Fatherland.
Count Bismarck then declared the session closed
amidst three cheers for the King. The statements
that diplomatic declarations have been made by
the Governments of France and Prussia in regard
to Luxemburg are semi-officially denied. In Berlin
-it is officially denied that Prussia is arming, and it
is stated that with the exception or the increased
organization of the line and Landwehr, began last
riti tn 111 a and now completed, which have been ren
dered necessary by new acquisition of territory,
no special military measures have been adopted.

cessions, and pueechfcv9 by Governor Otclesby smjcI
others.. The ni o of tho workingmeu is cijrht
hours' labor and nine hours' pay. Most ol Ihr
railrouds have notified tbt-ir employees that they
will be paid by the hour. Many large employing
firms declare that laborer mnst work as long as
required, and will not pay fall day' wagea for
eight hours' work. The prospect is that Aero will
be a serious disarrangement in the relations of
trade tor some time. Some workingiuen iustfct on
old rates for reduced time. Employers almo.it
unanimously refuse to pay at Imtbne. The res'iil is
awaited with much anxiety on all tides, not anly
in Illinois, but in other States.
Ciut'AOO, May 1st The worklagmen's demon
stration to-day, in honor of tbe commencement of
the operation of the eight hour law, was tho largest
i ? i t in 'l, : Til, i. ..
disnlav ever witnessed in Chicago. The number
in the procession is estimated at 20.CHM) to 30,00O,
representing nearly every department of labor. A
great many workingmen hold aloof, apprehensive
that the working of the law would not bo advan
tageous to the working classes. More than half
the shops of all kinds in the city were closed, tho
employers refusing to accede to. tbe demands of
the workmen. Whatever the ultimate result may
be, it seems probable that the immediate effect of
the law will be mischievous, and cause trouble be
tween employers and laborers. Similar demon
strations occurred in most of the principal ciliew

nois, as the workingmen s candidate for Tre-sklent.
Ciiicaoo, May 2d. Great excitement prevailed
in the city to-day. A mob of 500 eight-hour men
were endeavoring by violence to prevent trie
workmen in tbe various lumber yards, railroad
shops and other manufacturing establishments,
from going to work under tbe ten-hour system.
The mob raided throughout the west division of
the city early this morning, summarily closing
shops, mills, &c, and ejecting men w ho were about
going to work. Tho police encountered the mob,
but were too weak to disperse them, and finally
prevented the demolition of the Fort Wayno road
freight house. The police concentrated iu force in
vaiious parts of the city to-night, ready for .action
at a moment's emergency. It is not probable that
any violence or demonstration will be attempted
to-night, though the rioters went ofT threatening

curred last night- There are some anticipations of
more riotous demonstrations to-day. The Times n
very indignant on account of the feeble aotion of
the city authorities. Certain railroad officer bave
received letters threatening their Uvea unless they
agree to the eight-hour system. They refinw. to
make any compromise with the strikers. It is sakl
summary measures will be adopted . to-day if the
riots break out anew.
Ciiicaoo, May 4th Evening. There has been
no rioting to-day. Squads of police were stationed
at various manufacturing establishments through
out the city where trouble waa expected. No mob
appeared. A large elevator was tired this morning
and totally destroyed. The fire wa undoubtedly
the work of an incendiary, and is supposed to l
one of the strikers. Tho loss is about 8250.000.
The elevator burned was nearly empty, but it ad
joined two others full of grain. One was some
what injured by water.
Chicago. May 5th. Another Incendiary fire oc
curred at 12 o'clock last night. A machine shop
and foundry on Adams street were totally con
sumed. Loss, $0,000. It was undoubtedly the
work of some discontented laborers. Tho Mayor
of the city has issued two proclamations, warning
the citizens to keep the peace. The great body of
the workingmen deprecate the course of the rioters.
CificAoo, May 8th. Little change is reported in
the labor movement. Many men are resuming
work, but the strikers still hold meetings and as
sert their determination to hold out to tho last.
