MONDAY, MAY 1, 1882.
The formal opening of the Sessions
of the Legislature, came off on Sat
urday in the order and the manner
pet foith in our issue of that morn
ing. The attendance on. the part of.
Uic publicwas larger than on any
previous similar occasion. By half
past eleven, -tlie-body Tof'tlic Hall
was nearly filled ,,itli 'fashionably
attired ladies and ge'iitlcmen, and by
12, there was only standing' room
left. On; the. Cou.rt side there was
also a large attendnnco of foreign
and government dignitaries' and
officials, with a brilliant galaxy" of
ladies. His Majesty, who entered
tiie hall vdy shortly after 12t was
dressed in full uniform, aud wore a
number of decorations. Immediate
ly following the King were Her Maj
esty the Queen and His Majesty's
sisters, their Royal Highnesses the
Princess Liliuokalani nud the
Princess Likelikc, accompanied by
His Excellency Gov. Domiuis and
tlie Hon. Mr. Cleghom. The
Princess Liliuokalani wore the Rib
bon and Ordor of Kolokauii, the
Star of Kamchameha nnd the Order
of the Rising Sun of Japan; the
Princess Likelikc wore the Ribbon
and Star of Kamcliamchn and the"
' Star of Kalakaua; Her Majesty
Queen Kapiolaui wore three Orders.
The ceremonies began with on im-
' presslve prayer, in Hawaiian, by the
,,, Rev. Mr. Macintosh, of the Anglican
'' Church! His Majesty then, in a
clear and distinct voice, read his,
Speech, in Hawaiian and English,
which occupied about fifteen minutes
- in jthe delivery. . It will bo found in
full in our present issue.
Speeches from the Throne are not
expected to bo particularly explicit
as to Government Policy, but are
' "' .usually made up of generalities. It
.may be remarked however of the
"--"present lloynl utterance, that parti-
cular 'prominence is given to ' the
-I'lH'vrisubjcet of " a thoroughly organized
" :x" system of immigration." And what
irr.A Jfi"Jevcr may he the public apprehension
!'I .r,J ' as to the much-talked of project of
"-Ta large loan, it will be with satisfac

VflVtVUtry as will be necessary for aiding

Nobles and Repiiesentativks :
Since the prorogation, of the Leg
islative Assembly in August, 1880, a
portion of My Kingdom has suffered
from the plague of Snmll-pox. Hap
pily, through "the unremitting exer
tions of the Board -of Jloalth, the
disease was confined to the Islands
of Oahu and Kauni, nnd in thclattcr
island it was by strict quarantine
regulations confined within narrow
bounds. It gives Me pleasure, to
recognize the exertions of the officers
of the Government 'in the perform
ance of their nrtluois duties during
this trying period1, "which, combined
with the wilHng'txHperation and
self denial of the people at large,
contributed so much to limit the
ravages of the pestilence. '
Our relations with Foreign Gov
ernments continue in the most satis
factory state. At the desire of the
Government of tho Emperor of
Japan, a revision of tho Treaty with
that country was unuertaken, but
certain political relations of the Em
pire with some of the Great Powers
induced the Japanese Government
to request that the final ratification
of said revised Treaty should be
postponed for tho present, nnd His
Imperial Majesty tho Emperor of
Japan sent i n Special Envoy to this
country to explain the situation.
During My recent tour around the
world, I was received in the most
hospitable and friendly manner by
the Ruleis and Governments of the
different countries' through which I
passed. I shall always look back
with pleasure to this trip, and I trust
that what I Baw and learned may
accrue to the benefit of My People.
The figures which My Minister of
Finance will lay lieforo you in Mb
Report, clearly exhibit the progres
sive and nourishing condition of our
Agriculture, Commerce, nnd
Finance, mainly due no doubt to the
Treaty of Reciprocity with our near
neighbor the United States of Amer
ica, with which country our main
Commerce has always been carried
What this Kingdom seems most to
require to ensure a continuance of
its present prosperity is a thoroughly
organized system of Immigration of
families from some country whcjsjj,
inhabitants win De congenial to our
soil, to our sub-tropical climate, to
our institutions, and abo'vjj all to our
own people. Whilst we welcome
industrious families .from all parts of
the world1, experience so far seems
to point'to' the ' Portuguese from the
Azores as those most readily avail
able nid likely to meet our require
ments, and' 'in view of tlio circum
stance that difficulties had arisen in
keeping up this stream of suitable
population, I despatched in Decern
hcrJastiMy Minister of Interior His
Excellency H. A. P. Carter to Lis;
ban, to endeavor to remove those'
difficulties and with full Powers to
make a Treaty witli His Majesty the
King of Portugal. I have eve;y
reason to believe that bis efforts v,ill
be successful. , , . .
"SucTr,atpystcm of Immigration,
and numerous public'improvements,
imperatively, called for .in. this pro
gressive Btiigq.ot'our history, will re-,
quire a considerable outlay .during
tbe.Vnext biennial periodyand' My
Minister of. Finance will,, ask you to
pass measures authorizing a specific
Lban for Immigration, and fof.eafeh
great public improvement ds ft may
be'approved by the Legislature.
