Nothing can entitle men to posi
tions in the public service but their
own fitnesi for such positions. When
electors and appointors allow them
selves to bo influenced by any other
consideration they sully the sacrcd
ness of their trust. Ties of kindred
and feelings of personal friendship
should never lake precedence of the
question of Utiles'!. But what con
stitutes fitness V There can scarcely
be any wide divergence of honest
opinion in a matter of this nature.
No thoughtful and sincere man will
deny that integrity, ability for the
work to be done, and diligence in its
performance, are essential requisites.
A lack of either of these qualities
disqualifies for olllce. The brains
amiability of a I'kmaick are iusufll
eient, if not iisociiileiKwith the in
tegrity of a gentleman and the
diligence of a man of conscience.
Neither is the most upright and
incorrupt of human beings fit for
office, who is destitute of brain
capacity for the duties of that olllce.
We say, brain capacity for
duties of that olllcc, mean
ing thereby, aptitude for the
work peculiar to the position, what
ever it may be ; for a man may be
eminently qualified for some parti
cular sphere in life and totally in
adequate to sonic other. A lands
man is not the proper person to get
a vessel off a lcc-shorc, and a sailor,
accustomed all hisTifc to tho sen, is
the last man to apply to for instruc
tion in agriculture. It is just as
unreasonable to suppose that ordi
nary clerks, practiced in keeping a
, set of books and making out periodi
cal balance sheets, or that sugar
boilers, or poi-poundcrs, or plowmen,
however skilful in their several
handicrafts, are exactly the stamp
of persons qualified by nature or
education to conduct the important
business of government, or comprc-
bend the varied interests of a mixed
population. Jt is stupid lo attempt
to fill a round hole with a square
peg, and it is worse tlinn stupid it
is a wrongto put men into places
for which they arc Unfit. Kvcrv

backward in charging tho present
Administration with its perpetration,
and some thoughtful and intelligent
men assert in private that former
Administrations wore not invariably
faultless in this respect. It is a
.great pity that it should be so: the j
Jivjury is to the Kingdom.
POLITICAL AFFAIRS IH NEW ZEALAND.
By our Inst budget from New
Zealand we learned Hint IMnjor At
kinson's Ministry bad resigned owing
to the adverse result of tho elections,
.anil that .Sir Julius Vogcl, n former
"Premier, lmd succeeded in forming n
Ministry. They met Parliament a
few days after the steamer left and
on August 20th. after having been
in olllcc about ti fortnight, were un
expectedly defeated on a want of
conlldrncc motion by a majority of
52 to 03. Sir George Grey having
declined to foim a aliulsliy, Major
Atkinson tried Ills baud again and
, formed one on August 28th. On
1 September 1st this Ministry resigned,
having been defeated by !!) votes to
JIG, and Mr. Stout, a colleague of Sir
Julius Vogcl, lias undertaken the
i task of forming a Ministry. Should
i this Ministry fail in securing a majo
rity thcic is no alternative but to
, dissolve Parliament. It will be rc
! membered that the last session of
the New Zealand "Parliament lasted
i only six weeks. Things political
I mint be very mixed down there.
"After another inspection of tene
ments in Sydney further orders have
'been issued for pulling them down,
as unfit for human habitation."
Federal Australian. Similar action
is being taken in Melbourne, and if
our Boaid of Health choose 1c- do so
there are plenty of dwcllingsMn Ho
nolulu 1o be operated upon similarly.
Who says this climate is destitute
of seasons? The Kingdom is expe
riencing a protracted fall ( in the
price of sugar), ind most of our
people arc looking forward to the
springtime of good government.
When the former is past, and the
latter has come, then shall the winter
of our discontent become glorious
i Four Austrian cruisers arc about
J to be dispatched by the Government
of Austro-IIungary on a purely
pacific mission. They arc to visit
all parts of the world Australia
and the islands of the Pacific,
, among the rest in order to ascer
tain with what port and with what
eountrie- Austria can advantage
ously open up a trade. The event
marks a new departure in the his
I tory of commerce, and will perhaps
eive as n precedent to the naval
qiin(lrou of other countries. Hotter
1 far that they should be thus cin
I ployed than in battering down nrsc
i nals. shelling forts and burning vil
lager It is generally believed among the
sugar-planters in Queensland that
the supply of Kanaka labor is dying
out. Fast Indians, Italians, Portu
guese and Negroes from the South
ern Slates arc proposed as substi
tutes. Egyptians arc willing to take
service on the Maryborough planta
tions for $50 per annum and rations,
according to an Australian paper.
If this be so and Portuguese and
Japanese fail us, the Ministry might
turn their attention to Egypt as a
field for securing labor. No doubt
they could be got cheap enough and
they arc climatically adapted and
pel haps might be found easily as
similable by our Hawaiian popula
tion. An article in the Adcerliscr op
poses, on health grounds, the super
fluity of shade about Honolulu
houses. Similar views were expressed
by one of our recent correspondents.
A portion of the surplus shade might
beneficially be bestowed upon cer
tain lnuch-frcqucntcd streets that
badly need it. In the meantime a
general thinning out and pruning,
with the canons of esthetics in view-,
would woik a great improvement in
appearances as well as sanitary con
ditions. Some of the groves about
j uptown residences display the hand
i 0f the landscape gardener, and form
I good model to follow.

' castigation to the people who aro
perpetually sponging on newspapers
for advertisements, which thoy are
well able to piy fori " We fie
qucntly have posted to us some trashy
pamphlet or tradedist, and the peo
ple interested in these things always
modestly ask for an editorial. Some
times it is ' kindly notice this, and
wc may be able to send you adver-
Using by and by.' Lately wo re
ceived a trado- list, accompanied by
the usiinl request for a free adver
tisement. Wc thought, wo would
have our little joke, so wc icplied : ,
' Dear Sir, We send you a copy of
the 7icid Gazette ; kindly give us '
one of your best four-horse-powcr
steam engines. If approved on ar-
rival, we may be able to order for
cash a 10 shilling American applc
parcr.' Wc are now awaiting an
" loina," who has been shut out
from the Saturday Press since his
ignominious failure in the contract
to write tlic Dri.i.imx down, is given
a very brief space in to-day's issue
of our weekly contemporary, to
abuse, the editor of this paper be
cause our local reporter poked n
little good-natured fun at him in a
description of the Chinese theatre.
We should have expected to find
that time had assuaged his grief over
the discovery to which we helped
him, namely, that be could write
the Knglish language "but indiffer
ently well." He still, however,
evinces poignant anguish that even
the unadorned diction of newspaper
English presents insurmountable ob
stacles to his comprehension. If
nature had not been so stingy to him,
wc could give' him a key lo the diffi
culty so far as this paper is con
cerned. As it is, wc can only ad
vise him not to tamper with Knglish,
and it will not hurt him.
A Queensland paper writes as fol
lows of the Ministry there: "The
election of a convict as Speaker, the
prosecution of the Courier, the pro
posals to do away with homesteads,
and lo flood the country with white
slaves, the scandalous attack on Mr.
Ilodgkinson, the drivelling weakness
of Mr. Dutton, the ferocious bruta
lity of Mr. Miles, the sickening
humbug of Mr. Butledge, and the
glaring idiocy of such followers as
Mr. Brookes, have discredited the
Government most effectually. In
ten months they have succeeded in
turning the country against them so
much, that if a general election were
held to-morrow, they would not have
a majority in the new Assembly."
Honolulu newspaper writers can dis
count that style of expression any
day. Queensland will have to iin
poit some of them if they can't pro
duce stronger language down there.
