Still tiiet Come. By the D. C. Murray we have
recfired ia addition to the former lota, six more
of these fine thorough bred Spanish merino sheep
(pure Infantado stock) from the celebrated Ranch
of E. W. Wooteej, Esq., at Berkely Oakland Cal.,
-j here all our fine merino stock ha3 come from.
Two of thee fine animals are for our friend Col.
V. C Jones; two for S. T. Alexander of Haiku,
and two for W. M. Gibson Esq.; thU being the
second lot for the same gentlemen from the above
celebrated ranch. It is evident our sheep men are
waking np to the importance of improving their
.tock, which will pay much better than any other
investment that can be made here we hope to see
many more come thia way.
Not the Tuisa. I a keeping with the spirit that
pervaded his answer to the " Memorialists," the
Minister of Foreign Affair, w still wont to make
bis threats ; and the question as to the right of the
Ministry to vote, gave him another opportunity to
remind people of the power they (the Ministry)
bad reserved. The King (by, or witliout, the ad
vice of bis ministers.) can prorogue the Assembly;
but it is a question whether it is decent, or even
expedient, to remind them of that power, for the
mere influence that such a consideration might
have with the more debased of the Representatives.
14V - -3 v . ,
SA TV HDA Y. MA Y 13.
TiitKK ha been ciiiidcraole sj-arrin over the
question as to the right of Ministers to vote in
the Assembly, both in and out, of the II jusc.
and our contemporary, in an article which
merely U-gs the qux-ption, Las k-nt bis oar to the
Ministerial side, however valuable that might
be, in righting the rcputatation of men who
were so cbliviou to the common rules of deco
rum as t.j Lave cutiie out bare laced in support of
self-interest. Fancy a Minister voting llr an
increase of Li, own pay and yet voting for an
increase of Lis own prerogative is identical iu
principle. On this point it is useless to waste
words, as such actions can never escape the
observation of enlightened people, and the acts
are suggestive of their own proper criticism in
the minds of those who make distinctions in
proportion to the intellectual, as alo the poli
tical status, of individuals. Our correspondent
signed P. U., has labored to induce a belief in
the correctness of the decision of the Leis
lat ure; but against all that has beeu said in
favor of this right of the Ministry, we hope to
be pardoned for merely saying that we beg to
differ. We are of or.inion that there are other
clauses in the constitution equally as pertinent
as the 43d.
And in regard to the case of the British Min-
istry, being at all analogous to that in question,
we mean no harm when we say that, according
to our view, it is altogether different. The !
British Ministry vote by reason of their right by j
election or hereditary right as peers, and vote I
only in the house from which they arc returned j
as ministers. o peer votes in the house of j
commons although as a minister he may sit
there. The Constitution of this country die- !
tinctly states that the three branches of govern- !
ment bhall be kept distinct, and none of the
three functions, legislations, judicial, or execu
tive, shall be uiergnl.
Perhaps, our friends of the other side, may be
able to prove that the ministers form no part of
the executive, or that, expediency is altogether a
better guide than the obvious meaning of our
fundamental law. No minister shall sit on any ;
trial of impeachment it 6ays nothing of voting, !
and so there is no negative to strengthen the :
argument in favor and if not allowed to sit on j
an impeachment, being a personal matter, is it j
in keeping with this, that other personal !
matters of equal, or more importance, should be
subject in any way to their pleasure ? j
The number of nobles shall not exceed twenty j
brobably a provision against the possible
6wamping of the representatives in vote. Does
er officio carry with it an extra-constitutional
right, to make the nobles' vote twenty-four?
We are sorrg we cannot be persuaded, if we
are wrong, but being not naturally given to the
sway of mere expediency, we hope that our
friends with whom we agree to differ, will place
something more cogent before our eyes, or cease
to hope that they may persuade.
In reflecting upon the vote which was taken
on Friday, May 5th, upon the question as to the
right of the Ministry to vote, we were struck by
the very largo proportion of names that we had,
at some previous time, seen upon the lists of '
tax assessors, and collectors. As a general thing,
we believe it is sound policy to call for the ayes
and noes on any important question ; but in the
case above, the Opposition attribute their defeat
to this cause.
It is not in the nature of the average man to
fight against his 44 bread and butter," as the
common saying goes ; and this is the explanation
why one side of the voting upon this question
among the Representatives was bo largely com
posed of assessors and tax collectors.
We give but one instance of the way things
are worked by government, merely to introduce
the subject, as the long existing- and successful
system of (to use a mild word) conciliating Par
liament members, is too well known to meet
further illustration. Although the law requires
that the assessors shall be appointed "on or
before the 1st day of July, and that they shall ;
make their returns on or Detore the 1st uav oi i
September," yet the appointments are seldom
(perhaps never) made within that time, and cer
tainly their returns are never made " on or
before the 1st day of September," as required
Persons strange to the Legislative machinery of
our little country, might inquire why our laws
are not observed by those whose Constitutional
duty it is to attend to their proper execution. So
many and various are the short comings of the
Executive, in this wise, that it would be impossible
to notice them here ; but in regard to the tax col
lectors and assessors we will 6tate in the plainest
and nioet common place English, that : although
not so stated by law, it has been a fixed rule of
government to reserve these offices for such as shall
have served the Ministry during the Legislative
Sessions, i. e., who have voted on their side, anfl
supported their measures generally.
Common sense, common honesty, and a desire
for order, which shall certainly characterize tho
King's Cabinet, would demand that none but the
most intelligent and upright men be appointed
to assess the value of property throughout the
country, and that these should alone be the
criteria to regulate the appointment of assessors, i
But common sense does not invariably point
to the Representatives of the people as the
necessary representatives of either superior inf
tellience or unsullied character, as the Ministers
would have us euppose, and that the appoint-
ments referred to were the result of such ar
Were such tho case, however, it would not bof
necessary to 6tay the appointments until it were
known how this, or that man had voted ; neither
would it be a necessary inference that because a
Representative had supported the government
measures, he must necessarily be the more-intelligent
or honest. The cover is too thin ; the
disguise too naked to hide the deformity beneath ;
and if such a state of affairs must longer exist,
the injury to property holders and to the country
at large, will still increase its dimensions ; for
the time will come under suco a rule, that the
very name of these offices will be a by-word and
a reproach, and only the man of blunted moral
sensibilities, the knave, or the fool, can be
induced to hold them.
Another instance of the eratic nature of our
contemporary was given in the last issue of his
paper. Only a short month ago the editor gave
an opinion on the Constitutionality of the 40th
Chapter of the Laws of 1874 : An Act to
facilitate the negotiation of a Treaty or Treaties
of Reciprocity," arguing that it was sound leg
islation. At the time this opinion was given we
noticed it in a 6bort item, advising all other au
thorities to be silent, the Oracle having spoken.
Now the editor says : " The Act may or may
not have been Constitutional."
Our self-constituted expounder of the Consti
tution now proclaims that : " The Act of 1874
has lapsed, and all the powers conferred by it ;
and it will be the duty of the government, before
t!.c Treaty can lcme cj ratie. 1j cuLUf-iy with

We had not thought that the fores of certain"
Articles of the Constitution could be suspended,
as the by-laws of a fire company might be, when
fjund inconvenient for immediate action; but
Lad innocently imagined that the several Articles
our fundamental late could ' nly be repealed or
amended by the action of firo Legislature!. The
Act of 1374 alluded to, was a very questionable
piece of legislation ; was so viewed by many at
the time, and is o looked upon by sound thinkers
at this writing.
The preamble o! the Act gives the idea that it
was expedient to set the Constitution aside
because of the great udvantage of the Treaty to
the country, and also may be Construed to mean
what our contemporary would have his readers
believe, that i?, that the force of the law was
limited to a certain term, and by this limitation
is now of no force.
Reading the first Section of the Act itself, we
cannot accept the opinion of our brother editor
as altogether sound. The Section reads : ' That
1 any Treaty or Treaties of Commercial Reciprocity
' which may be negotiated after the adjournment
; tn8 ssion (1374) ot the Legislature and
! before the next meeting thereof is
hereby approved of, and the same shall go into
effect and become a law of the land, whensoever
such Treaty or Treaties may be ratified by His
Majesty the King, and proclaimed by him to the
people." The language is, that any
Treaty which may be negotiated in the interval
between Sessions of the Legislature, shall be the
law, alter ratification and proclamation. His
j Majesty's Speech says, that the Convention of
Reciprocity has beeu concluded. We take this to
j mean that the Treaty has been negotiated, in the
j sense that the Act will be held to contemplate
(and that, therefor, if news of its ratification
ehould be received by the incoming mail) that
His Majesty would be held to be fully justified
i in proclaiming the Treaty as the law of the
land, and merely leave to the Legislature the
details of a re-arrangement of methods for
making up the deficiency in the revenue.
We fear that our contemporary is a bad
adviser perhaps not wittingly so but never
A Currency Flan Again.
In an article published in the Hawaiian Gazette
cf the 3d inst. headed ' Inflation versus a Specie
Basis," the writer in pronouncing the plan for the
Hawaiian Government to adopt a paper currency to
be absurd, has evidently forgotten to point out where
in the absurdity exists; but it does seem absurdly
inconsistent and unapropos to the subject under dis
cussion, to bring into comparison the introduction, of
a paper currency with " an act to authorize a na
tional loan," &c , when one has not the least rela
tion to the other.
lie goes on to say that " the proposition made by
our contemporary is simply a scheme to issue paper
money without a specie reserve and to loan money
to agriculturalists at 5 per cent while borrowing at
9 per cent."
There is not a single word or sentence in the pro-
posals for the introduction of paper currency as
legal tender that could imply either, that the paper
currency would be issued without a specie reserve, or
that the issuing of it at 5 per cent would necessitate
borrowing at 9 per cent; but perhaps it would be as
well to explain how a specie reserve can be formed.
There are, it is believed, unappropriated funds at
present in the treasury aggregating $100,000 in
gold and silver coin, quite distinct from the $100,
000 deposits in gold, for which treasury certificates
have been issued, this would form the nucleus for a
bullion coin reserve, and as all payments into the
treasury on account of marine and internal revenues
from time to time, would bo made in coin, only these
sums would go to increase the amount in reserve, so
that by the time the $250,000 proposed to be issued
in notes had passed into circulation there would be
their equivalent in reserve specie. Again, u6 all
payments on account of salaries of government offi
cials, the military, police, &c, as well as for internal
improvements would be made in paper currency
there would be no drain on the specie reserve, which
must eventually accumulate until a demand for an
increase to the paper currency would be the result.
The government by granting loans to planters and
others at 6 per cent, would make a reduction of that
amount in the interest of 9 per cent, now being paid
on the national debt, thus by an effective working of
this system for a few years we might have every rea
son to expect that the incubus of a national debt
would be entirely removed, and as it has already
been stated, a new source of revenue to government
would be created which could eventually be expend
ed on such internal improvements as would prove
most beneficial to the nation at large.
In conclusion we would remark that it is probably
best known to the writer of the article under refer
ence, what he means when he asserts that " it is the
duty of governments to provide money for the busi
ness wants of their people," perhaps he can give a

There is litilo of any interest to report in rc-
gard to the proceeding of the Aembly, as the
time i a? been mostly occupied by the pretcnta-
ti n ol J t-titl Oil.
j We before mentioned that the question as to
i the riht of the ministers to vote was in their
fivor. To a person who cares enough about the
matter, the list of ayes and noes on this vote
afLrds matter lor study, the result of which will
be, that one will be satiified that the pop!e do
not consult their best interests when they elect
to represent them in the Assembly, parties hold
ing office under the government. The question
we are considering was carried only with the
assistance of five tax assessors, a pol 'ce magis
trate, and a head constable. We are satisfied,
however, that the people can only blame them-
! selves, and that the lesson which they might
j learn and profit by, will be unheeded or forgotten.
The fisheries bill, to make all waters free to
j- the i?ople, was placed before the Aeeeoibly hy a
i member from Honolulu, Hon. Liiikalani, and is
' nothing more than a proposition to take from
' certain parties a vested right, in proj-crty, and
; distribute it among the masses without compen
sation to the owners. This may be the outcrop,
j ping iu this community of an idea which bus
j wrought dire confusion in France on more than
one occasion. The Honolulu member may have
j aspirations to become the Rochefort of Hawaii,
j but we cannot let the full weight of our con
demnation fall upon this young Hawaiian, when
his colleague, the only foreign member for Hono
lulu, could so far forget himself as to vote in
favor of the bill in committee of the whole, and
then upon more matured consideration avoided re-
j sponsibility on a vote to refer to a committee, by
j absenting himself from the room.
We should certainly be lenient in our judg
ment of Hawaiians.
A resolution to the effect that the Assembly
vote by estates was introduced by the member
for North Kona, Hon. Mr. Pilipo.
The Attorney General in making his remarks
against it, said : That the resolution showed
childishness and could not prevail, "as it was
manifestly in opposition to constitutional provi
sions. The Hon. Mr. Pilipo in reply asked the As
sembly which evinced the most childishness, .his
resolution to vote by estates, or the Attorney
General's defence of the right of the ministry to
vote, when the gentleman claimed the right to
vote as the representative of the chief txeculice
of tho nation ?
With all due respect for the Attorney Geu
eral, we must say that we consider this no more
than a fair retort. Those who ridicule out of
mere feeling, ehould not be surprised to find
others ready to play the same game with equal
p." wo rather important resolutions were adopt
ed during the session of yesterday ; one by the
Uflon. Mr. Gay, inquiring of the Minister of the
Interior as to the number, extent and situation
of all lands belonging to government ; and the
other by the Hon. Mr. Preston, requesting of
the Minister of Finance, an account of the sums
received from proceeds of government lands 6inco
1SG4 ; also what portion of such eums has been
devoted to the purposes of a sinking fund, as
contemplated by the act of 1804. It is doubtful
if members of the present or recent administra
tions have been aware of the existence even of
such an net.

to sit each day at one o'clock (in order to give tbeir
committee men time for their committee work with
out necessitating them to work at night), the free
lunch system will probably be broken up, and the
nation saved a large expense, for the sustenance of a
large class, whose chief ambition was to fill their
stomachs, no matter bow empty their heads might be.
Flowkrs. A beautiful specimen of woman's han
diwork is now on exhibition at the wholesale liquor
store of II. Macfarlane & Co. It consists of a
bouquet of flowers made entirely of wax, and col
ored with such true taste and dexterity, as not to be
distinguished from nature by the closest inspection.
Among the flowers represented, are the rose, gardin
ia, alamanJa, blue bell, &c. The whole is the work
of Mrs. Sclfe, and will pay any who may wish to
Dark in Distress. We are informed by a person
from the spot, that the bark Universe from Callao
bound to China, was obliged to put into Kailaa on
Wednesday of last week, on account of injury sus
tained in a heavy gale, a few days before reaching
port. Her deck planks were badly sprang and the
vessel was leaking badly. The intention of the cap
tain (whose name is not given) was to make Kaa
waloa, but failing this be arrived at Kailua on the
above day, and sailed for Kaawaloa the same night.
His intention is to repair there and then proceed on
bis voyage, which will take a week or ten days. "
