The Attempted Ruing in the Prison. Accord

cerned in the disturbance last Wednesday, they were
incited aod encouraged to make the attempt to gain
tbeir liberty by several of the soldiers on guard.
This would seem to be confirmed by the actions of
the guard, who, when the shout of "all hands " was
raised by the prisoners, and the rush made upon Mr.
Fyfe, stood by looking on unconcernedly, with folded
arms. A pretty state of affairs this ! The military,

Ml FfiTva: A circular ia Hawaiian, with th
above beading, printed at lb Coveroiorut rwas,
nd distributed through the streets of flooolulu, rm
the night of the lUth, endeavor to prove that II. K
If. Prince William C Laaalilo U of bo higher rank
than other chiefs now living, and tberere has no
ui4rkr claims to the throne now vacant.
Tbe ancestry of Hawaiiaa chiefs is veiled in con
siderable obscurity, owing ia part lo the fact that
the ehiefesaes of high rank were, at different titr-c.
tbe wives of different chief. The rank of the mother
gave rank to the cflVprtrig. Thw chiefeavapa were
therefor sought after a wives, when their fwrmer
husbands died or forsook tbetu.
Tbe author of the circular, who is evidently a for
eigner, teems to have Uken Dibble's History as his
authority reelecting the genealogy of tbe Prince
mother. Now it is well known that Dibble's History
is siuip'y a compilation frost tha historical owe posi
tions written by tb young ttudeats of iAhainalasa
Seminary. Tbe narrative Is chiefly interesting a
traditions gathered from natives, and tend to mialead
tbe reader by sol giving the facts in full. Oa this
account, it is not wholly reliable. Dibble, in his
record of the chiefs, says t

There seems no doubt that Kekantuoh! was the
eldest daughter of Kaheiheimalia. alias Kalakua,
alias noapili-wahine, wife first of Kataehameha the
Great, who bad soma twenty wives, and afterwards
of Kaleimamahu, and lastly of Hoapili, Governor of
Maui. The facts that KaheiheimalA was one of the
wives of Kamehameha L, and that Kekauloobi was
her eldest daughter, are strong evidence that the
claim of Prince William of being the grandson of
Kamehamea I. is a legitimate one, and in tbe absence
of positive conflicting evidence, should be admitted.
All admit that Kinau was the daughter of Ka
mehameha I. Now both Jarves and Bingham say
that Kinau and Kekauluohi were sisters. Conse
quently, it must be admitted that Kamehameha was
the father of Kekauluohi and grandfather of Prince
William. 4 '

proclamation was issued in this city, commencing as
" I. William C. Lnnalilo. the son of Kekauluohi,
the daughter of Kamehameha I., to the Hawaiian
nation, greeting. "
" Let the genealogists see, and they testify this :
Kekauluohi was not a daughter of Kamehameha I
as asserted in the publication. But her line is after
this manner :
" Kaleimamahu lived with Kaheiheimalia. and
Kekauluohi was born thence ; and Kekauluohi lived
with Charles Kauai na, thence was born tbe chief
Wm. C. Lunalilo.
" On tbe other side, this is tbe real truth
Kamehameha I. (after the birth of Kekauluohi)
lived with Kaheiheimalia. thenoe was born Kinau
Kinau lived with M. Kekuanaoa, thence was born
the two kings now deceased.
"But in regard to tbe relationship of Kameha
meha I. to Kaleimamahu, it is as follows :
' Keoua lived with Kekuiapoiwa, thence was born
Kamehameha I. ; afterwards the chief Keoua lived
with Kamakahaikuli, thenoe was born Kaleimamahu,
the father of Kekauluohi.
"This also is the truth : Kamnliameha I. lived
with Kanekapolei, thence was born Kaoleioboku,
a male, the first-born of Kamehameha I.
"Kaoleioboku lived with Keoua female, thence
was born Pauabi, which female chief lived with
M. Kekuanaoa, thence was born the sister of the
late King, Ruth Keelokolani.
''Kaoleioboku further lived with Luabine, theoce
was born Konia; Konia lived with l'aki, thence was

Meeting of the Privy Council.
.At .the invitation of Chief Justice Allen,
Chancellor of the Kingdom, the members of the
Privv Council of His late Maieetv present in Ho-
olulu, assembled at the Palace on Monday last.
for tbe purpose of placing upon record rcsolu
tions ciprestiive of regard for the memory of tho
late King. We copy the following account of the
proceedings from the Gazette :
Tbe Chancellor said :
Gentlemen : In view of the overwhelming loss to
the nation, by the sudden death of our beloved Sov
ereign, and of the sorrow which this melancholy
event has especially caused to us, who have been so
long and so intimately associated with His late Maj
esty " in the consideration of mattera for tbe good of
the State, I thought it proper, in which tbe Cabinet
of His late Majesty concurred, to ask you to assem
ble informally, that we might give such expression of
sympathy and sorrow as the melancholy event may
In making a request for this meeting, I have as
sumed no authority, gentlemen, to ask you to assem
ble as a Privy Council; but it was the best mode
which occurred to me of asking the friends of His
late Majesty, who have been associated with him in
the public councils, to assemble together that tbey
might have opportunity to give such expression as
they thought worthy of the occasion, and to place
upon record a memorial of the very high appreciation
we have always entertained of His wisdom and patri
otic devotion as a Sovereign, and His noble qualities
as a Man.
Upon the conclusion of the Chancellor's re
marks, the Privy Councillors, after consultation,
unanimously agreed upon the following declara
tion and resolutions, which will be eigned and
presented for record when a new Sovereign shall
summon a Privy Council :
Tbe Privy Councillors of His late Majesty Kame
hameha V. having assembled, after receiving intelli
gence of his untimely demise, by invitation of tbe
Chancellor of the Kingdom, are anxious to have
placed upon the records of the Privy Council, some
expression or tbeir appreciation oi tneir ueceasei
Sovereign. Most of them have served tbe late King
during the entire period of His reign, and many of
them beld a seat in the Council during the reign of
at least one of His predecessors. They were thus
brought in contact with tbe late Sovereign before His
accession to the Throne and while he held a most re
sponsible position iu the organization of the Govern
ment. They therefore request His Honor the Chancellor
of the Kingdom, whenever any I'rivy Council may
awfully le assembled herealter, to present the foi-
owing resolutions, and to request that they may be
placed upon its records:
l:esAvel, iliat the i'rivy Councillors here as
sembled have received with profound sensibility
the intelligence of tbe untimely death of their late
Sovereign. King Kamehameha V.. in the meridian
of life, while they were eincerely hoping that His
mild reign would have continued for many years
to promote tbe welfare of His people and the dignity
and strength of His Nation.
Resolved, That we bow with reverence to the in
scrutable, decrees of Divine Providence, which
tempereth all things well, but we can not be indif
ferent to the great loss whiab this Kingdom has
sustained ; that we especially appreciate tbe moral
force, the sagacity and deliberate wi.sdom which
enabled our late lamented Sovereign to uphold
with so much dignity the authority of His Crown,
and tbe mild spirit which characterized all the
Sovereigns of tbe Kamehameha Dynasty, and which
wa. largely shared by the last ol the lin.
Resolved, That we sincerely respect His attach
ment to the people of His own native race, and the
pride with which be contemplated their position
among the nations of the earth ; the firmness with
which be always asserted their independence, and
tbe anxiety for their welfare which bad such acoo-
rollintr influence upon Iiis national policy. row.
that He is numbered with His Ancestors, we humbly
commend the people who are deprived of a father,
to the generous consideration of tbe whole world,
and the guardian care of Almighty God.
Resolved, That in this bour of personal as well
as public affliction the Privy Councillors tender the
expression of tbeir profound sympathy to all who
were connected w ith the late sovereign by any ties
of kindred or affection, and most especially to Her
Excellency Ruth Keeiikolani. the Sister of the de
ceased and the last of His immediate family, to
whom tbe Chancellor is especially requested to
communicate the feelings ot th Privy Councillors,
in such form as may seem moat appropriate in view
of .ber great bereavement.

vitality that gave it a living force for the time, lite
edict tbat temporarily suspended its operations did
not destroy its functions, and it remains with us
now to rcuaodcl tke structure oo the Crta fouodation
bequeathed us by Kamebatnvha HI.
The train of event tbat have led to our being
situated as we are, with the labor cf reoonstrectlng
the state a poo us, has been singular and yet logical
if we consider tbat at the time the Coastitutwa was
granted to us by our King with our lpreetttivee,
we as a people were not felly qualified to appreciate
or enjoy tbe tbe bleating. From the apathy with
which we looked oo when it was sweet aside to fit
place to tbe Decree, I am lead now to believe tbat we
ueeded a few years of absolute tuonarcby, aoder the
guise of " lUpreeentatioa " to arouse us to demand
w etagae cAerle. Tbe problem that we have to
solve Is simply this : Under what pledges shall oar
new ruler assume the functions of his olhceT Setting
aside as a secondary ooosideration who or what tbat
ruler shall be, let us carefully consider what shall be
the .measure of power tbat we. tbe 'people,-teow
sovereign, shall place in his bands. Experience has
shown us that we cannot leave this matter to tbe
caprice of the future head of tbe State. Starting out
with the proposition that tbe only Constitution that
we have, or ever had, provides for our needs la tbe
interregnum, how far short of our future needs does
it couie t And how well qualified is the present
Legislature to deal with the subject T
There are many reasons tbat suggest thntuaelve in
favor of calling a National Convention ta' order fo
deter mi oe upon the form of Government under which
we shall elect to be ruhd in the future. Such a
Convention would bring out all the me a of ability
we have amongst us, and woulJ admit of a more
intelligent expression of opinion than ootid be ex
pected of a Legislature, that, while it was fully
capablo of carrying out tbe requirements of the
Decree tbat gave it birth, was by no pie ins composed
of the material that would harmonize ia an effort to
give a Constitution to tbe country.
Let us then call a National Cou vent ion of (he peo-
le, at which a free expression of public tocliog can
nd vent, and thus prepare tbe way for a Legislature
chosen for tbe purpose of adopting a Constitution
and electing a rulor. Oxi or tub rfcorLX,
