At 11 : 15 a.m. the Band was play
ing a cheery march and " our brave

the enclosure in front of Aliiolani
Hale, notwithstanding the fact that
they had to

and that a general dampness over
the stocks of the muskets caused
them to hold them somewhat un
steadily. On the piazza in front, a
number of officials and invited
guests were watching the manoeuvres
from thuir coign of vantago and en
joying the spectacle of Professor
Berger merrily beating time in a
waterproof overcoat. If our soldiers
are not numerous they are at least
brilliant (with their overcoats off,)
and perhaps, in a few years, they
will learn to obey orders with mili
tary precision and to present arms
"with one accord" instead of in
twenty different ways. Insido the
building tho President,
Tilly HON. GODFREY IUIODES,
was making his farewell speech to
the Assembly of 1882, and congra
tulating them on the work they had
done, and what good boys they had
been, and, with a merry twinkle in
his eye, hoping to meet thcin all
rKKCISKI.Y AT 12 NOON,
a royal salute was fired, announcing
that His Majesty had left the Palace
and was on his way to the Hall. In
side the Assembly rooms, instead of
the usual members' desks and chairs
and other dull, work-a-day para
phernalia, the dais was decorated
with the Hawaiian flags and two ka
hilis, each in the care of a gorgeous
ly liveried kanaka, were placed one
on each side. On the throne was
placed the celebrated yellow feather
cloak of the Kameliamehas', and in
front of it a small table. On each
side of it were thrones which were
afterwards occupied by their Royal
Highnesses Liliuoknlani and Like
like, the former sitting at the right
and the latter at the left of Ilis
Majesty. Handsomely upholstered
chairs and sofas were placed round
the upper end of the room for the
Commissioners, Consular agents,
Ministers and their wives and the
Nobles. Amongst those present we
noticed the British and French Com
missioners, the oflicors of II.'M.S.
Sappho, the Consuls for Amotion,
Germany, &c, the Judges of tho
Supreme Court, the members of tho
Cabinet, and almost nil the Nobles
and Representatives. Whilst we were
waiting for His Majesty to appear
we had an opportunity to observe
the dresses of tho ladies, who were
in many instances as well-dressed as
if their dresses had been imported
from Paris. The most striking were
those of II.R.ll. Likcliko, pale blue
with whito lace ; Mrs. Bush, pink
and imincnso train ; Mrs. Hnyscl'
den, cream. color, and H.R.II. Liliu-
okalanf, black with ornaments in
led. Not being acquainted with tho
names of some wo are unable to do
more than mention one costume of
figured velvet which alt i acted
special attention. In a few minutes
everyone rose to their feet as

preceded by the Chambcilain carry
ing the King's speech, and followed
by the Ministry and Judge Judd, and
accompanied by II. It. II. Liliuokn
lani and Likcliko and Mr. Clcghorn.
After prayer by the Rev. A. Mack
intosh, in Hawaiian, who by com
mand of His Majesty, acted as tho
Chaplain of the day ; the King de
livered the following speech first in
Hawaiian and then in English.

MW.UII OF HIS MA.7F.STY THE KINO,
ON THE OCCASION OF THE PRORO
GATION OF THE LEGISLATIVE AS
SKMULY, AUGUST 7tll, 1882.
Nobles and Representatives:
The Session of the Legislative As
sembly of 1882 has finished its
labois, and I congratulate you, at
tlie.closo of your deliberations, on
the general prosperity of tho King
dom, and on account of a common
hope in which I cordially share, that
my Kingdom is assured a new de
parture in the way of beneficent pro
gress. I am happy to stalo that our rela
tions with Foreign Governments con
tinue to be of the most satisfactory
character. .His Excellency II. A. P.
Carter, my Minister Plenipotentiary,
at tho Court at Lisbon, has con
cluded a provisional convention with
the Government of Ilis Majesty the
King of Portugal, which favors Por
tuguese immigration to our Islands.
You have provided amply for the
best interests of the Kingdom for
immigration to promote re-population
; for the sanitary welfare of the
people! forth'ccaie of our interests
abroad especially the Treaty of Re
ciprocity with the Government of
the United States ; for more effec
tive police administration ; for the
internal peace of the country ; and
for the encouragement of its chief
industries. And I feel assured that
these liberal provisions will be judi
ciously administered, and faithfully
carried into execution by my Minis
ters. I thank you, gentlemen, for the
generous provision made for myself,
Her Majesty the Queen, and for
other members of the Royal Family.
I desire to express my appreciation
oi your legislation on various mcr-
sures calculated to promote the wel
fare of my people, especially in the
passage of Acts : to consolidate and
simplify our tax laws ; to provide a
loan for important measures of in
ternal improvements ; to provide a
more effective control of, the tr.ulk
in spirituous liquors ; for the settle
ment of certain claims against Crown
lands ; for the audit of public no
counts ; and for the coronation.
I trust that at the close of your
public duties, and on proceeding to
your several homes, you will, as the
result of your meetings and delibera
tions m the national Council, bear
with you a warmer love of your
country, and a ueepcr interest in
your nationality and independence,
and that in your several walks of
life j'ou will give assurances to your
several constituencies of the watch
ful interest of the Government in
their welfare, and that conjointly
with them you w ill strive for the
best welfare of my Kingdom.
Nobles and Representatives:
I pray that the Almighty will have
you in his keeping. 1 now declare
the Legislative Assembly of 1882
"With this the proceedings termin
ated, and the King returned to the
palace. Tho number in attendance
was comparatively small, the Hall
being less than three-fourths full :
probably U00 were present, but this
is accounted for by the state of the
weather, which remained wet all day.

be made to prevent the accumulation
of storm-water in the streets during
a henj' shower. A stone channel
about 8 inches deep next the curb

wide altogether) on each, side of a
street, if so arranged as to follow
the natural dip of the ground, and
whenever tho street crosses, gullies
that these be taken advantage of so
as to allow the water to flow to a
lower level, would wc believe go far
to obviate the trouble.
