Tu constitutionally governed
ifiti.itrir: tho iiooiilu liuve the right
to petition Legislative Bodies. This
is n country with ti constitutional
government: the people of this
country possess the light of petition
to their law-makers in Legislature
assembled ; and they arc not slow to
recognize this right m.r backward in
its exercise. 'Witness the innumer
able documents, embracing an end
less variety of subjects, that have
been presented for the consideration
of the assembled wisdom of the
country during the past eight or ten
weeks. Some of these petitions are
reasonable and sensible, others arc
indifferent, whilst a large proportion
nre stupid and childish. To Biich an
extreme has this petitioning privilege
been carried that thoughtful people
arc beginning to regard it as a ludi
crous farce. It is surprising that
honorable members arc willing to
bring before tlio notice of the House
a great deal of the senseless rubbish
that their constitucnccs entrust them
Tuesday, "July 11. The commit
icb "on Foreign Affairs repotted on
the. petition from Mnkawao, Maui,
praying that the Heciprocity Treaty
be continued; and also on the peti
tion from Honolulu, that people who
would assimilate with the Hawaiian
race be the only kind of immigrants
to be sought for by the government.
The committee recommended that
their icpoit be. laid on the table for
considciation by the House when
ever brought up. Adopted.
Mr. Widcinaun, from the Finance
committee, laid before the House the
report of Mr. J. S. "Webb, the gen
tleman employed as an expert to ex
amine into the accounts of expenses
of .Board of Health during the smnll-
Mpox epidemic. The report stated
that a largo amount of money had
been used, and that a considerable
portion or the same had been paid
out without vouchers to show for it.
The committee asked that the same
inay be laid on the tablo for further
consideration by the. House. The
motion to,; print said report was
Mr. Pilipo read a resolution re
queuing the President of the Hoard
- of Health to report to the House
within three days, whether tlio re
port now current among Hawaiians
that Dr. Fitch had been dismissed
from his olllce of government physi
cian was true or fulrip.
Mr. J'iiipo made some very
lengthy remarks, and appeared to be
very excited. He said that if this
report was a fact, then the action of
the present Board of Health was
next to treason against the life of
the Hawaiian race.
His Kx the Premier and President
of the Board of Health made a few
'short remarks, stating that such a
report was not true, that instead of
dismissing Dr. Fitch, the Hoard in-
N tend to enlaigo the dispensary so
that he may do the work in a more
LiBatihfactoiV manner to himself and
to the people at large. The place

The Alta of July 1, says: Friday
night a terrible accident occurred
near Felton, Santa Cruz county, on
one of those mountain roads to
whose perils it seems strange that
more travellers do not fall victims.
iV coach drawn by four horses and
containing twelve persons, beside
the drivfrr, fell over a precipice two
hundred feet hierh, three ladies and
one gentleman being almost instant
ly killed, while some of the others
arc piobably fatally injured. Tlie
names of the deceased all from San,
Francisco arc George Scott, Kva
Hussey, Ida Cowdcry and Celia
A large number of San Francisco
people are camping near the town of
Felton, which is near the Big Tree
C4rove, and seven mil s and a half
from the town of Santa Cruz. All
went well at camp, until Friday nicht.
There was proposed a moonlight
ride to Santa ( ruz, where a danco
was to take place, but this was ob
jected to by mi ny of the party, 'as
the mountain ro..l was known to be
very steep and dangerous ; however,
a party of twelve started on the
frolic which terminated so fatally.
A hay wagon and four horses were
secured at Felton, in which a paity
of six ladies and six gentlemen left
the camp early in the evening. On
the way a slight accident happened
to the wagon, but it was patched up.
After the dance and a general good
time at Santa Cruz, another team
was secured and the paity started
on the leturn trip.
About two miles from the camp
on the county road, over which they
travelled, there is a particularly
dangerous point. ' The road has been
cut along the side of the mountain,
and at this poiut it is narrow and
made of planking. It runs also on
the verge of a precipice, several
hundred feet high, overlooking tl.o
boisterous stream known as San
Lenndro Creek. This roadway is so
narrow that there is room for one
vehicle only, provision being made
at stated intervals for teams to pass
It was about ono o'clock when the
party reached this place. It was very
dark, the moon having set, being
then in its first quarter. In some un
accountable manner the driver lost
ana backin-r wilrflv. ilu onilm nut.
pCe) (l (lUliini.-tj of about ninety feet,
, into the ravine below. Tim n(nrt
i " - ---o-
was ' demolished" and two of tlio
hoiscG weie instantly killed, or died
soon after, and four of the party
were also killed and several seriously
injured. Those of the party who
were uninjured crawled out from the
wrecked stage as soon as possible
and set about extricating their com
panions. The cries of the horses and
groans of the wounded person. were
terrible to hear. Two of the party
set out immediately to obtain medi
cal aid, but, not knowing the local
ity, wandered about in the woods.
About a half hour after the accident
two wood-choppers, encamped near
by, hearing the cries of tlio wound
ed, came to their assistance. One of
them, familiar with tho country, set
out for Felton for aid. Housing the
occupants of several houses ho se
cured their willing help, and, obtain
ing plrysicians a relief party reach
ed the scene of the accident about
four o'clock this morning.
When an examination was made,
it was discovered that four of tlio
party were killed, and the following
were found insensible, and it is fear
ed that their injuries arc fatal : Ben.
