excitement cf fear, the iwtitediate discussion cf the
CoDstitutional B.ll preparexl by Mr. Casimir Terier
for the consolidation cf the ron-descritt Republic
then existing into a well defined fjrea cf government
with 1 -tribal .Mc.Mition as President fur sven yers. :
Two ether bills had ten laid before the Assembly
one on behalf cf the " Septencat " lekving the pres- '
ent to take care of itself, and postponing all questions
cf definite legislation till after the expir ition cf the '
term of power of Mc.Mahon in l!vsO; the ether, in
favor of the .Monarchy and Count de Chambcrd, the 1
list cf the Honrbons. This last motion was nude by '
the Iuke do la Rochefoucault Disaccia, the Arobassa- t
dor of the French Republic at the Court of St. James, '.
who was using his influence against the very govern- j
meat he was serving in an official capacity 1
When the peril Is oier, the good resolutions, die- i
tated by the impending calamity, are soon forgotten, '
and the Coi.stitutional Dills, deemed S3 important cn '
the ICth of .Tune, were 3 weeks later in the pigeon- I
holea of the office of the Committee of Thirty, who
being mainly composed of Monarchist', refused to
adopt and endorse Mr. Casimir Terier's views. On ,
another hand the bill for the restoration of the Count j
de Chamber I could not be urged before the Assembly,
still less before the country. In this cruel dilemma J
the Committee framed a new bill, the provisions cf I
which tended to the maintenance of the equivocations :
of Marshal McMahon's neither-fish-nor-flesh-govern- i
In the meanwhile, the prosecutions were actively
rried on against the Bonapartist conspirators, and
so serious were the charges against them, that, had
it not been for the early prorogation of the Assembly,
some deputies, and Mr. Kouher amongst them, would
have been made answerable for the leading part they
took in the matter. Some curious facts have come
to light which I think may prove worthy of perusal.
Mr. Fictri ex-Prefect of Police and Mr. Ilouher ex
Prime Minister of Napoleon III., were the chief pro
moters of the plot; they live in houses situated in
different streets, but a secret door leds from one
dwelling to the other, so that a person entering at
Mr. Rouher's door can come out from Mr. Pietri's, "est India sugars ot the same color. Itie lmpor
and vice versa. The police investigations have long tance of these cases is such that it has been thought
been baffled by this ingenious arrangement. One of
the domestic attendants on Marshal McMahon had
keen bribed to send daily reports of the President's
actions. You will understand my abstaining from
expatiating on such private matters, where the sub-
lime and ridiculous play very amusing and promis-
But the last, not the least is to be told. You doubt
less remember that, in the course of Marshal 15 i-
zaine'a trial, emissaries of the French Government, i
declared having given to Colonel Stoflcl despatches '
fur McMahon, which the former never transmitted
and even denied having received
ing received. In those dis-
toid to disregard the advice of
r advUers and instead of pro-
patches McMahon was
the F lb press and of her
ceeding to Sedan, to rally his army nearer to Paris.
It was important for the Bonapartists to stop the
mouths of the indiscreet despatch-bearers, and they
tried, but in vain, to bribe them. A record of the
transaction and of the attempt made has, it is re
ported, been found in the
archives ot tne oecret
You can easily fancy the uneasiness arising from
those contests not anfrequenti disturbing the public
mind. MarBbal McMahon thought it advisable to
show to the dissatisfied that he had, at any rate, the
power to keep them down, if need be, and the means
of ruling with a firm hand. On the 28th of June,
he passed a grand review of troops (G0,(K)0 men) on
the race-course of Longchamps, and issued the same
day a proclamation to the army, in which, after
bestowing on them the usual encomium for the pre
cision of their movements he makes use of the fol
lowing significant language : " The national As
sembly has given me for seven years the executive
power, and has placed in my hands, for that time,
the safe-keeping of order and public pence This
part of my mission likewise belongs to you. We will
fulfill it to the last, maintaining everywhere the
authority and respect of the laws."
This document, much commented upon, created
no little sensation. Did the President aim at a Dic
tatorship? Was he tired of the evident reluctance
of the Assembly to organize his Government ? Such
was at least the construction placed upon it by one of
the leading newspapers cf Paris, the Figaro, and
many violent articles appeared in it to urge the
Marshal to adopt that course and dissolve the As
sembly as Napoleon had done in 1852. The news
paper was allowed to go on unpunished for a long
time, but at last overstepped the limits of permitted
controversy, and its publication was stopped for 15
days, which caused the owners a dead loss of 80,000
francs for a fortnight suspension ! I will give you a
specimen of the tone of the Figaro at that time:
"Leave all hope, you Deputies of the Assembly;
whatever you do, the Marshal is there for seven years.
Here I am, here I will stay. You took the hero of
.Magenta out of his sphere, and you thought he was
a man of straw, but he proves to be a man cf iron.
He is stronger than you. You are nobody. The
army knows none but him, shall obey none but him,
shall follow none but him."
After the President's proclamation to the army,
the Legitimists saw plainly that it was his firm inten
tion to hold the supreme authority for seven years,
and that he would dare to keep " the descendant of
St. Louis waiting at the door of the Septennat."
Then there was a concert of recriminations against
the Duke de Broglie ! "Such was not the under
standing; they had been deceived by the then Trime
Minister'a promises ! He had declared to the mon
archists, in order to get their votes for the Septennat
in November, 1873, that McMahon's would, be but a
sham-Government, under the protection of which all
intrigues could be carried on for the return of Count
de Chambord. The Septennat had been invented
merely to frustrate the hopes of the Republicans
aud to prevent a dissolution of the Assembly and
new elections which would but prove advantageous
to the Republican cause." You may well under
stand their disappointment, when the President's
declarations indicated that he, at least, took the

Right knew no bounds. Both Right aud Left, exas- ' liUilllj,
perated at the repressive, but now impartial meas-
ures of the government, combined once more in a:
spirit cf revenge, and a vote cf censure caused the
Cabinet, selected by Marshal McMahon in the month .
of May, to send in their resignation. We have our -
ministerial crises more often than in happy Hawaii.
The President of the Republic refused to accept the
resignations and sent on the 9th of July a message to
the Assembly. He reminded them again that they
had appointed him as Chief of the Executive for
seven years, even before laying the basis of durable
institutions by which he could govern. Having ac
cepted the trust he meant to keep it, during the
period mentioned, and was prepared to defend it
against all competitors. Now tbey must also do their
part and make the laws required, and he concluded
in insisting ou a prompt action on their part, point
ing out at the same time the evils resulting from the
This language was coinciding with the wishes of
the Republicans and Mr. Casimir Perier's bill at last
came for discussion, but was defeated, the Committee
of Constitutional Laws, composed mainly cf loyalists,
having reported adversely to its conclusions. The
republicans found a compensation in helping to crip
ple more effectively the Bonapartist party, and Mr.
Magne, Miuister cf Finance, who had held the same
position with Napoleon III., was obliged to resign, all
the financial schemes he had proposed being syste
matically opposed by the majority. Mr. de Fourton,
Minister of the Interior, soon followed Mr. Magne,
leaving the Imperialists without a supporter in the
Cabinet. An orleanist the General de Chabaud-Li-tour
succeeds Mr. de Fourton, and a republican, Mr.
Mathieu Bodet takes the place of Mr. Magne.
After the successive rejections of the various con
stitutional projects, a member of the Left Centre
brought forward a motion for the dissolution cf the
Assembly, and a general election in September, since
the Assembly was incapable cf doing anything but
counteracting all the solutions presented. Against
two motions for a dissolution, three motions were
made for a prorogation, a decision more likely to suit
the convenient ' f the two sections of the Monarchists

Decision ia the Sugar Cases.
Vak:oton, Aii?. 31. Following i the text of
: a h tter Irora the r-erei iry of the Treasury to the
Collector of the r.rt of San Francisco, about the
iigar cases mentioned in the dispatches last night.
; Alter acknowledging the receipt of the Collector's
letter. tranmittins ihe appeal of Falkner. F.ell t
('. a;aint the Collector's assessment of 1J cents
ir pound ou certain sugars imported lrom the
Kast Indies, the Secretary says the appellant claim
i that in each cae the rate of duty imposed on con
; ct-ntrated Melada. was the alternative assimilation
' t the rate on Impugned sugar. They allege the
'. article in question was brought in its present state
j solely by evaporation, and was never drained cf
; the liquid element. The opinion of appraisers and
experts of several leading ports has been taken,
1 also an analysis cf the samples by Professor
; Williams, of IJ.iltimore. The distinctions of the
1 law do not now embrace the term impugned sugar
as separate from other sugar, and the only point
! remaining i whether the term concentrated Melada
applies , to it. The evidence of the appraisers
and experts is unanimously against such iden-
; tity, all declaring that no form of Melada could be
j imported in the bags or sacks. Melada in any
i form is known only in the West Indies, and is
always semi fluid all the samples are sugar, both
by commercial and by technical distinction. It is,
however, claimed that the mode of preparation of
the sugar in question is by drying down without
draining, and that being impugned it is assimilated
to Melada. o conclusive evidence ot ttiis claim
j ia presented however. . and the presumption is
; strongly against it, the high saccharine qualities
leading to the inference that it was separated from
the more liquid parts by floating. The certificate
of Prof. Williams gives SO per cent, of cane sugar,
dirt excluded, and the same is practically affirmed
Tiy the certificates forwarded by the appellants,
with one exception. Twenty per cent, of saccha
rine matter at present gives 68 per cent, of cane
sugar, and 7 per cent, of grape sugar. The rela
tive proportions of cane and grape sugar constitute
the only proper test, and they give the proportion
of cane sugar, in the cases, higher than is Hsual in
! proper io state tne reasons tuuy luat. couiroueu

applicable to all parts of the United States.

There is a rrrowincr feelinsr throughout our
island cornmunity, that a Treaty of Keci-
.. , . A rT i
! procity between the United States and the
Hawaiian isianus, is uoui uesiruuie anu may
possibly be secured. Hitherto, we think,
the question has been viewed quite too much
from an Hawaiian stand-point, and not suffi-
i eicuuj num n mi ,.un, v, um , tun
be made apparent that it will, in a national
point of view, be more beneficial to the
United States than the amount of Custom
House duties derived from Hawaiian sugars
and other products, most assuredly the
Treaty cannot be secured. Our Hawaiian
Agents going to Washington must be able to
show that America is to derive a substantial
benefit as well as the Hawaiian Islands.
Here has been one of the errors of former
negotiations. As we view the question,
America, even in a pecuniary way, is quite
as much profited as our islands.
When the subject was up for discussion in
1SG9, we were in the United States, and
conversed with members of the United
States Senate upon this subject, and at
that period, they expressed the opinion, that
the Treasury of the United States must not
relinquish any amount of duties derived
from foreign importations. Times have now
changed. The national debt has been some
what reduced, the effects of the civil war
have partially passed away, and Keciprocity
with Canada is now under discussion. From
these and other considerations, it appears to
be a favorable opportunity for re-opening the
subject. The leading and influential men
in Washington are inclined to look abroad
and contract foreign alliances, which will
augment commerce and promote national
prosperity. Let now the Hawaiian Govern
ment improve this 44 tide m the affairs of
men," and it may lead on to fortune. As
for Annexation, it should not be mentioned,
for it will only perplex the question and
Ivnder negotiation. Its discussion Itcre
would only irritate the Hawaiian people, and
we are fully convinced that the United
States would not accept the little Kingdom
if offered. A Treaty of .Reciprocity would
secure all the benefits to both countries of
Annexation, without any of the complicated
questions which would attend that subject.
If now the Hawaiian Government will
i take firm and conciliatory ground upon this
j matter, we honestly believe the authorities
j atWashington would meet them half way.

The Revision of the Bible.
An article in a late cumber of the International
Renew gives some particulars of the progress which
has a!reJy been male in the work of revising the
B;ble. Three different crginirations are at present
engaged ia it an American, an English and a Scvtch
Association. All the associations are acting under
the most rigid rules. The concurrence cf two-thirds
of each bJy is required for aDy change. The object
is not so much tJ give a ne'W translation as to correct
the errors cf the existing version, whether arising
from original mistranslation, a change in the mean
ing of words, or defective grammar. Prof. Fi!her,
who is the author cf the article in which this infor
mation is conveyed, says that the American Associa
tion has progressed far enough to determine that the
words " fcr Thine is the kingdom, the power, and the
glory, forever and eTer," is an interpolation, and
prcperly no part cf the Lord's Prayer He furnisher
also, many instances where the same word receives
different translations. Thus, in one sentence in the
New Testament, the words pity" and "compas
sion ' are given as the translation of the same Greek
word. Th? ear cf the original translator may have
objected to the repetition cy the same word in a sen
tence, though nothing is more common where an
emphatic and lucid statement is necessary. It is a
favorite mode of expression with Macaulay and a
great many other writers of celebrity. Opinions ate.
as might naturally be expected, greatly divided npon
the subject of the revision. It is hard to give up even
phrases that one knows to be inaccurate in a book
which is so blended with Christian life everywhere.
But it must be said that according to the statement
of Professor Fisher the eystem of revision which has
been adopted is the one that is likely to be productive
of the least wrenching. It will make no changes
unless they are imperatively demanded.
