On Saturday morning at 6 o'clock His Majesty
the King left Waimanalo on board the steamer
for Laie, td attend the cereinouy of the dedica

jesty was accompanied by Hon. J. 11. Cummins.
.The steamer arrived off the coAt of Laie at U:30
a. M., and a landing was effected at 10 A. M.
Over one thousand people had already assem
bled by the sea, awaiting the arrival of His
Majesty. Upon lan ling the King was received
by a committee, who tendered the following
Your Royal Majesty, Kalakaua I : We, the
Committee on Reception, beg to proffer to Your
Majesty and friends a kind welcome to Laie, on
the occasion of the dedication of our new church ;
and for this purpose we have come forth to meet
you, that we may skow by our acts our love aud

with the same good will and kind feelings that

Ever praying for Your Majesty's welfare, we
subscribe ourselves, yours respectfully,

His Majesty responded graciously and appro
priately, and was then escorted by the assem
bled multitude to the large, new and elegant
church edifice, and witnessed the ceremony of
the dedication, after which His Majesty made a
short address, which was received with the
most enthusiastic applause. Then there was a
luau given to His Majesty, and a1out 4 p. m. the
royal party set out to return. The immense

The entertainment at the Music Hall last
Saturday evening, given by a newly organized
minstrel compauy composed maiuly of foreign
ers, wa not very well attended. There was
many more gentlemen than ladies present. The
gallery was tolerably well filled, bat the parquet
was almost empty and the dress circle not over
half filled. It was uoticeable that the particular
patrous of the free cntertaiumant recently given
at the Y. M. C, A. Hall were not represented in
the audience, aud the popularity of "gratis"
entertainments over th e uiven for the cake of
'filthy lucre" was cert duly demonstrated.
The exercises of the evening opened with a
chorus by the whole company, arranged in a
semi-circle on the stagi. The four end men

The end men m mipulated boues aud tambos,
and Mr. Bcrger, the bandmaster, with two or
three assistants, furnished excelleut musical ac
companiment throughout th performance of
the greater portion of the programme. The
comic songs, "My Darling Colleen" and
"Shine On," rendered by Fisher and Hitou, re
spectfully, were received with loud applause, as
also were other songs of part first of the pro

ballad by F. Fisher and a Lancashire clog by
F Roach, were also applauded. Part third con
sisted of a farce entitled "Fun in a Doctor's

though some laughter was excited, the effect on
the audience wa3 not very favorable.

ARCTIC EXPLORATIONS. j
A Successful Expedition Into the Interior j
Copenhagen, September. 21 t. Advices from
Professor Xordc-nskj -Id's expedition to Green
land have been received via Thurso, Scotland.
They state tint the expedition started from
Antleikviek on the 1th of September and reached
a distance of 3tlo kilometers inlr.u I. attaiuiugu
bight of 7,000 feet above the sea. This is the
first time bumau beings have penetrated so far
into Greenland. The whole region is a desert,
proving that th' re is no water inland. Vcry
viluible scientific data was obtained. Along
the northwestern coast ii cold stream flows,
which induces a very low temperature, but ou
the eastern shore the weathtr is not so severe,
and that coast is accessible to steamers in
When the party was 110 kilometers east of
the glacier border the soft snow prevented them
from proceeding on sledges. The La landers
were, therefore, sent on with snow-shoes. The
rest of the expedition visited the northwest
coast, between Walgat and Cape York. They
were informed by the Esquimaux that two mem
bers of the American Polar expedition had died,
and that the rest returned to Littleton Island.
On the lGth of August the expedition sailed
south from Egedesmond, making a &hort stay at
Ivigtut. Julianeshaub aud Fredersdale, aud tried
to proceed eastward three times ttirough the
sound, north of Cape Farewell, and along the
coast, but the ice prevented. They went out
side the ice-field to latitude 6-3 deg., remaining
continually in sight f land. The drift ice was
forced south of Cape Don. and on September
0th they anchored iu a fjord newly visited by
Esquimaux, where remains of the Norman
period were fouud. This was the first time sine.
the fifteenth century that a vessel had suceeedea
in anchoring on the east coast of Greenland,
south of the polar circle. After having tried
vainly to anchor in another fjord to the north,
they returned aud arrived at Reikavik Septem
Philadelphia, September 21st. Professor T.
B. Maury says that if Nordeuskjold had suc
ceeded iu disembarking on the eastern coast of
Greenland, the probabilities of success in his
undertaking would have been much greater, as
the iutervtuing glaciers and saow-fiel Is existing
between Ivigtuk and the interior do not extend
from the interior to the eastern coast.
Loudon, September 21st. Stockholm advices
state that a letter from Lieutenant A. llovgaard,
commander of the Dijiuphn i, dat? I August 1st,
says if the vessel is not freed from the ice this
year he iuteuds to send home twelve men in
September and remaiu himself with the re
mainder of the expedition another Winter. If
the Dijmphna is freed he will complete the chart
of the Kara sea, and iu that case he hopes to
reach Norway in October.
The Dijmphna sailed from Copenhagen on
July 13, 1S32, with an expedition of Lieutenant
A. llovgaard, of the Danish navy, on Doaru.
The commander was a companion of Professor
Xordcnskjold in the Vega. He is a young man
25 years of age, and acknowledged to be a
thorough and accomplished officer, with a three
years' experience iu the Arctic regions. Lieut
enant Hovgaard's vessel is ouly 159 tous burden,
being 100 feet in length, 23 feet in breadth and
12 feet in depth of hold. She was strengthened
for the struggle with the ice both inside and
outside. Lieutenant Hovgaard's object was to
ascertain whether Franz Josjf laud really ex
tends to the neighborhood o f Cape Chelyuskin ;
whether the condition of the currents aud ice
are such that a basis for further explorations
can be reached here without too great a risk,
and whether the eastern coast of Frauz Josef
laud trends to the northward at this poiut.
They proposed to Winter n-vir Capi Chelyuskiu
or ou the south coast of Franz Josef land if it
could be reached, and hoped to return within
sixteen mouths. Observations were- to be taken
throughout the Wiuter, iu accordance with the
programme of the international expeditions.

Mb. Eoirou: In a well-governed, constitu
tional State the governing power should possess
a lar.'e share of mental endowment, adequately
represeut all classes, enjoy public confidence and
expenses and circumspection in the choice of ad
visers. Measures which give the people a proper idea
of their own rights, aud induce a love of country,
such as their employment in all positions they
are capable of filling, are commendable. The
erection in public places of the statue to the
memory of their greatest chief, the founder of
the Kingdom, must be gratifying to them. The
endeavor to create an interest in Hawaiian inde
pendence in the minds of foreign writers by
showing the civilized state to which Hawaii has
attained, her continued progress, and the advan
tages to foroigu communities the continuation of
independence is likely to confer, is patriotic.
Unfortunately, some other matters do not
present so j leasant a picture. The choice of a
Cabinet has sometimes been the reverse of

Tho Government here considered as distinct
from the Sovereign, is amenable to public opin
ion. It may be called to account and required
to answer for its acts. Ministers are responsible.
The person of the King is inviolable and sacred.
He may not be sued at law.
But it is not unlawful, aul may bo profitable,
briefly to consider the office of this exalted per-
consist, and the spirit in which they should be try would probably now have been overrun with
Uuinese coo:s, overwueuueu uy u n.- .
inextinguishable debt, and subjected to couse-
iag, as it did, the idea of a resolve to carry
Measures regardless of adverse opinions aud
It is difficult to conceive any other reason to
account for frequent dismissals, unless it be a
determination to try all sorts and conditions ef
men until some are found to support all meas

Had Mr. Moreno remaiued iu office, the coun-
The King should be the most sensible man in
his dominions. He should never forget that he
has been called to the throne not for his own
pleasure or profit, but that he might devote his
talents to the welfare of those under him. He
should hold aloof from all political parties, care
fully study the interests of his people, aud in
vestigate the motives of those who propose meas
ures aud schemes for consideration, sanctioning
nothing that does not in all respects conduce to
the public good.
Being liberally supported by the State he will
not embark in any enterprise having for its ob
ject pecuniary gain, r competition in business
with citizens of tho country of which he is Chief,
aud, having sworn to rule justly, he will refrain
from the commital of any act, no matter what
its prospective gain or advantage, of which there
is auy doubt as to its compatibility with strict

aside auy constitutional or legal requirement.
While avoiding entanglement in all political
factious, ha takes part, and bis utterances have
due weight, iu all Cabinet discussions. Iu case
of disagreement among Ministers his may be the
as ting vote.
Hence the saying "The King reigns but does
not govern," is iuaccur ite. He does govern with
the assistance of his Ministers. His duties do
not end with their appointment. It would be
idle to suppose that having indued them in office
be would entirely abandon the reins to their
If it bo proper for the Sovereign to avoid par
ty politics, still more necessary is it, both for
himself and those under him, that he harbor no

waste of public money, or dereliction oi uurj in
any department. But it is notorious that men
incompetent from waut of proper training and
business knowledge sometimes tiu 1 tiu ir vay
into the Assembly. Should Ministers, weak in
principle, or altogether corrupt, ally to them
selves such persons they would form a formida
ble party in the Legislature in apposition to pop-
ulur rights. Iu order to further tneir own in
terests that party would obey all behests of the

Crown, especially voting tor royal disposal an
such sums of money as might be asked for.
By discreetly taking advantage of their oppor-
tunities these weak.kneed members wouui iooh
for their reward when occasion arose. Aud oc
casions are seldom wanting. Ifiu no more di
rect manner they occur wheuever there happens
to be a vacancy in a public office from the lowest
up to the Cabiuel itself.
Giving the present Premier credit for his ap
parently earnest endeavors to perpetuate the in
dependence of the country, he has made himself
conspicuous by voting large sums for royal con
sumption. Those sums generally iuerease with
each session of the Legislature, at the last oi
have been ; still, if a crisis is to be avoided,
great caution in the conduct of public business
is a necessity.
A feeling of dissatisfaction and distrust pre
vails among the foreign-born element of the
community, which cannot be set down to an
tagonism of race, for men of foreign birth are
members of the Cabinet.
This unsatisfactory state of affairs alienates
from the Government men who entertain none
but the kindliest sentiments for the Kingdom
and its people. But men of spirit and energy.
accustomed to the civilized rule of Europe and
America, will not tamely submit to arbitrary
measures imperiling their undertakings or de
priviug th m of political rights.
Taken as a whole, for years the Government
has presented tho appearance of a sort of politi
cal kaleidescope, in which men of all sorts of
opinions, and of no opinions at all, have been
thrown indiscriminately together, each figure a
combination while it lasted, presenting some ap-
with bis approbation in a manner not at all in
keeping with a just and thrifty expenditure,
therefore with danger to the independence ne
professes to uphold.
The suras expended on the Coronation are
considered by some persons to be as profitlessly
lost as though they had been thrown into the
Hot so by others. Even if the costly cere-

There is little doubt that government by native
Hawaiians alone, or by a majority of Hawaiian
in the Cabinet, unless they give way in matters
of moment to their more experienced foreign col
leagues, is impossible.

Our esteemed correspondent proposes the es

Utopbian Government. He wants a ruler that

by thinkers and writers who arc not in oiueo, but
who, prompted by tho invariable vanity of human
nature, persuade themselves, mid would per

time. Mr. Treadway aetod a? umpire of the
game, and his decisions wero fair, aud in tho
main satisfactory. The heor at tho end of tin
game stood as follows :
viduals has boen, not to s iinort, but to subvert,
desire for absolute covernment, nor seek to make the independence of the country, but there is an
other which has exercised great influence m tne
formation of Cabinets and baa added much to
their instability. This is the appointment of men
mot endowed with requisite qualifications; many
admitting their honesty, innocent of business
knowledge, incaple of deteriug danger, or seeing
the weak points in proposed measures, anxious
to retain their posts for the sake of the salary,
and dependent on their colleagues for tho dis-
criavo-e of their official duties. Such men would
readily assent to the propositions of their chiefs,
Their easy subservience to his will would ac
count not only for instability of the Cabinet but
for a baneful growth of absolutism, and a de
plorable state of confusion iu public affairs.
There are two probable reasons for the appoint -meut
of such men to Cabinet officers. One the
not unnatural desire of the Sovereign te educate
and provide profitable employment for his fellow
countrymen the other the supposition that be
niio-ht command their vote and enjoy a larger
dummies of bis constitutional advisers by tne
endeavor to coerce or control them in the legiti
mate discharge of their duties. Arbitrary as
sumption of power is seldom happy in its re
sults. No Sovereign, however varied his accomplish
ments or great his powers, can be an Atlas. He
cannot carry on unaided the business of govern
ment, nor could any honorable man, able to dis
charge the duties of Minister, abdicate the rights
and responsibilities of his office for the sake of
its tinsel show and golden emoluments.
The Sovereign shows his judgement, not by
surrounding himself with men always ready to
cringe, fawn, flatter aud give way on every ques
tion, but by filling every office with men of the
best talent, energy, aud probity attainable, and
submitting to their guidance in all public mat
ters. He doe3 not trust entirely to his own un
aided judgement, however good aud patriotic his
iuteutions. He is but a man with sense and at

Ever since the Fishery Exhibition, when the
Princess of Wales appeared at the fair iu a
simple dress and small capote bonnet trimmed
by herself, the English milliners and modistes
every man and woman of them have experi
enced tne liveliest iudiguation. But this war in
their hearts will not produce a revolution, or in
the least offset the exi-.nple the royal lady
chooses to set. English women adore their
Princess, and will certainly adopt such styles
as she may introduce or acknowledge.
Nor will the effect of the simple toilets of the
Princess of Wales be confiue 1 to the clear-com-plexioned
daughters of Britain. With the grow
ing tendency among fashionable circles in New
York for everything English, it is safe to con
clude that English styles in dress will prevail to
a great extent here during the Fall and Winter
season. Of course our own dressmakers and
milliners will fight an innovation that maaus a
loss of dollars aud cents to them, but many
.i . ti a.1
ladies will welcome it just tor tne noveuy oi mo
thing, an 1 surely it will prove a blessed boou of
comfort to innumerable heads of families with
recent unpleasant Wall street experiences in
Ample proofs have been given since tna ad
vent of that innocent little capote boauet, which
first fired the English milliners' hear; with rer
volt that the Priucegs is determined on a new
order of thiugs. a i 1 tin: her exi uple is already
doing its perfect work. She appeared in a white
muslin dress. si.u;ly trimma.l with laca and
wearing a small whit- binuet, at the garden
partv "Iven bv the P.-i ioe and herself at Marl
borough. The la lies iu attendance, for the most
part, were attired in short morning dresses.
The Princess and daughters wore crimson cash
mere dresses, with Jersey bodices, black silk
stockings and hi,;h boots. At the Goodwood
meeting, where heretofore plain toilets have
been few and far betweu, the Princess wore a
dress of d iTk navy-blue silk, exceedingly plain
and devoid of ornamentation, and a black straw
bounet, simply adorned with a small plume of
bright scarlet feathers. Even when the occasion
is such as to demand au elegant toilet, simplicity
of style characterizes it. An instance of this is
the Unlet worn Dy tne same royai iaay ai mc ic-
.i.dinfT.room. where she presided. This
cent u..,. a - -
good-will is as necessary for him as his is for
Events, not stale, if not altogether recent,
have shown the danger of one man's trusting too
imnlicitlv to bis own judgement, also that if the
Sovereign do so and give ear to the representa
tions of strangers or adventurers he may be
duped, perhaps become the victim to designs
ruinous to himself and people.
What then is be to do, seeing that in either
case of trusting to his own judgement or that of
others he is equally liable to failure ?
The answer is.-He will be guided in the form
ation of his-Cabinet by bis own common sense.
He will truly exercise that almost cardiual vir
tue, and, on no account whatever, suffer any
other sentiment, in a matter of such moment, to
usurp its place. He will appoint men who have
made themselves a name for capacity and hon
esty, looking with distrust on all those willing to
abandon principle in their readiness to conform
their judgement to his will and pleasure, at once
recognizing that they are not the material of
which rulers should be made.
How great should be his distrust of him who,
under the pretence of increasing the privileges
and prerogatives of the Crown, should endeavor
to incite him, regardless of the unmistakable,
well-defined boundary, of his own constitutional
rights, to invade those of the people. IJe should
have as much consideration for that man as he
would for anyone surprised in the act of fraud or
soie other shameful action and no more.
Should a Sovereign appoint as Ministers, men
who are always ready to gratify royal tastes and
prodigal desires, universal execration would fol
low the appoiutment. Iu the event of misfor
tune they would meet bat scant commiseration.
Do Sovereigns always keep their Royal duties
in view ? Do they constantly study to promote
r. ha utmost the welfare of their people ? Do
if the Cabinet were filled by foreigners alone
Very little roflection is necessary to show that
these reasons if they exisl are equally un
sound, and likely to lead to national disaster.
At the same time no other preseuts itsalf .
The dissatisfaction that prevails among the
foreign portion of the community appears to be
based as much on personal dislike as principles
If money has beeu squandered and the treasury
is empty, that is the fault of the Legislature.
The public work is well done. The roads are
now, perhaps iu better condition than ever be
fore. There is a better supply of water now than
formerly. The separation of lepers from the
sound part of the community has been effected
in a more satisfactory manner than for years be
fore. More care has been shown in sanitary
matters generally, and immigration has been
carried on more systematically, a good class of
immigrants being introduced against whom no
fault has been found.
On the other band, the lower departments of
the iudiciary appear to be iu a defective state,
but not worse than under fanner Cabinets.
MTany men have been appointed tax assessors of
whose competency for the office there are grave
doubts. Business has been badly managed as
in the Madras and Flowerdew cases. Interfer
knee in the department of the Attorney-General
causing his resignation, and undue assumption
of power in other bureaux causing the resigna
tion qf members are hlarneworthy if nq worse.
The alleged chirge against some officials of re
quiring unnecessary sums of money to be paid
by employers of immigrants requires explana
tion. But the most bitter of all complaints
against Government, and from the taxpayers
point of view, a wroag admitting no palliation
or apology, affecting the Sovereign personally
as it is supposed to arise from his own arts and
tactics, is the appropriation to him of large sums
Who could undertake tho duties of Attorney-
General ? What Hawaiian has any knowledge
of International law ? or how many poor Ha
waiians possass the requisite knowledge to en
able them, without help, to fill with tolerable
efficiency either of the executive offices of gov
ernment ? Few, as appointed, it is useless .to
blink the fact, but must be elependent on their
foreign-born colleagues for assistance iu the
proper discharge of their duties.
No want of love or sympathy for Hawaiians or
appreciation of their amiable qualities aud char
acteristics has dictated this estimate of their abil
ities. It is the simple truta, wnicn every ap
pointment of a foreign-bom person as member
of the Cabinet tacitly acknowledges. The events
of years proclaim it. It would bo a hhame and
disgrace to foreigners if it were not so.
This being admitted, there were would be no
chance for wonder, should confusion ensue in
public "business under the mismanagement of a
Cabinet composed of men of inadequate force.
Such a contingency would endanger all, but Ha
waiians more than any other class.
What then is the remedy ? How can the dis
content that agitates the public miud be allayed,
and the commotion which seems prospective bo
One course of action promises to be effectual,
the following of which inspiring the hope of
safety, lies at the discretion of one head, one
heart, one will. If attacked, aul the Sovereign

to govern alone, if h act conscientiously, consti
tutionally, resolutely; call to his counsels the best
and ablest raeninhi dominions, and suffer them
to carry on the business of government without
interference, giving ouly the casting vote in mat
ters wherein they disagree, he cannot be far
