MEETING OF THE PRIVY COUNCIL.
As we go to press the Privy Coun
cil of the Kingdom is in bession.
CSreat public interest centres in tlii
meeting, as it is believed decisive ac
tion will be taken on the currency
question. There is also generally
believed to be a variance in the Min
istry upon this and matters of gen
eral administration, which intensifies
the interest. Jt is earnestly to be
hoped that thcjfmembcrs of Council
have conic together free from bias of
cither party, section, or interest.
There is evidently a determination
gathering strength every hour in the
community, to viand a temporizing
policy but very little longer. Sonic
thing must be done to lift the exist
ing embargo upon trade, and estab
lish more satisfactory relations be
tween the Oovcrnment and Hie

It appears the Pacific Mail subsidy
has s'till some hope in Congress. On
Feb. 23rd, the Senate decided that it
was not out of order to inscit an

the Post Oflice Appropriation bill.
In spite of dull times the circula
tion of. the Bru.KTiN is iiicrcsising
every day. It is now more vsilusiblc
as an advertising medium than it has
ever been. Merchants are given, for
very moderate charges, the advan
tage of announcing the goods they
have to sell to si majority of the
English-speaking population of Ho
nolulu every evening.
In view of the difficulties encoun
tered in eradicating any contagious
disease in these Islands, whether it
be in man or beast, we suggest that
the Island of Oahu be quarantined
for homes, to picvent the spread of
glanders to the Islands not yet
affected. The residents of other
Islands arc becoming alarmed, unci
it is only reasonable that they be
given this protection. The law gives
the Minister of the Interior all neces
sary power. t
LATEST FOREIGN NEWS.
TIIK I)imill I'Altl.IAMKST.
In tho Hritish House of Commons,
Feb. 2t!rd, Sir Slallbid Northcotc
moved a voto of ceu&uro upon the
Government, for its Egyptian po
lic3r. The resolution asscited the
necessity of establishing a good and
stable government of Egypt and
those portions of tho Soudan ne
cessary for its security. In sup
posing his motion, Northcotc said
tho disappointing result of the (Jov
ernment policy was clue, not to
particular fault? here ami time, font
to the gtnerkt spirit wherein the nd-
vlscr ot Hie Crown cnnduclrd mnt- I
tcr. He rlaimrd fulfilment of
the following word in Ociicrnl Gor
don's muMiigo of April llilli: "If
troops sue not cnt it will leae up
on the (invormuunl the indelible
disgrace of abandoning the jpirri
sons, wilh the certainly of their be
ing compelled eventually to Mtlmiit
to El iMaluli." Sir Stafford closed
as follows: Tho country has
heatd quite enough of the policy of
'lU'M'iic and retire.' In fact, we
have been loo much a slirw lo
phrases. Nicks Psisha's unhappy
expedition should have been pre
vented or made more effective. The
(lovcrnment ha conducted the
whole business with the fatal draw
back of having to proclaim that its
mission was only temporary. Now
ssoniB distinct announcement is de
manded. Is the war one of ven
gwancc. or for the purpose of all lull
ing 'Otnc useful object? It is im
possible lo retain confidence in the
Government with the fear always
uppermost that it would by its after
couie destroy by words the effect
of what it was doing. The Govern
ment must drop the habit of evading
troubles by the adoption of a few
smart phrases. Ye are getting daily
into deeper water and whatever the
consequence? may be. I feel com
pelled to summon the House to pro
nounce a verdict in our case, the
same as it has done on previous
occasions, with the additional ex
perience of the value of the Min
istry's pio'-e and the success of the
Ministry's action. It is impossible
for any Government to command
success when it is dependent on the
support of two sections, one urging
the abandonment, the other support-'
ing its policy of an advancement.
The greatest dilliculty among the
many England has to encounter is
in the hearts .of Uer Majesty's Min
isters." John Moiley (Liberal) oll'ered an
amendment in favor of the cvacusi
tion of the Soudan. He regretted
the decision to smsish the Mahdi,
and said the Tories were paitially
blsunablc for the death of General
Gordon through their impoi tuning
the Government with questions and
preventing a compliance with Gen
eral Gordon's request for the assist
ance of Zehehr Pasha. Something
might still be done., he thought, by
negotiation with the Mahdi, but the
Soudan must be left to the Soudan
ese. Mr. Gladstone paid a tribute to
General Gordon, saying his one ob
ject in life was to do good, irrespec
tive of race, color, or creed. He ic
peated what Morley had said lcgard
ing Zebclir Pasha, and denied that
the Government had any icason last
year to suppose thai General Gordon
was in imminent danger. General
Gordon's own dispatches, s.'iid Glad
stone, had led the Government to
believe he would retreat with the
garrison southward if possible. The
Government had not changed a
hair's-breadth from the covenant to
send General Gordon assistance
when necessary and when possible
t-o do so. Ho referred to the state
ments of General Gordon's Colonels
that under no circumstances could
relief have been timely, as Farag
had Jong ago agreed to betray Khar
toum as soon as the British arrived.
Mr. Gladstone ssiid he fully
shared in the regret for the loss of
the gallant olllcer, General Gordon,
but there was some comfort in be
lieving that no great effusion of
blood had occurred at Khartoum.
England's mission in tho Soudan
was tho safety of Egypt. The Gov
ernment might have committed er
rors of judgment, but throughout it
had acted with honesty of purpose.
He felt satisfied that no other course
was open to them. lie referred to
the better government and other re
forms established in Egypt, and said
there was no longer any danger of a
rupture with France, which had cor
dially assisted in a measure which he
hoped in a few days to see formally
completed, and which should save
Egypt from bankruptcy. If Sir
Stsiffoul Northcotc wanted to estab
lish a good stable Government in the
Soudan such a covenant was not
compatible with common prudence,
because it meant the establishment
of a British Christian Government
over Mohammedans This would
entail an endless struggle, for the
people were courageous by birth
Mid were ' made reeklws by fwiatl-
elrnii. The Government declined m
onlor into ituy rovt'imnl not rensona
bin nml puulent. Even without the
determination lo smash the Mahdi,
the Ntmkiin expedition wos neces
sary to scenic the ictiroincnl of the
troops. If the House thought the
Government had failed in its duty,
l he latter would cheerfully accept i
the verdict, but if they believed it I
hud acted with good intentions sind
with palpable errors of judgment, ho
hoped they would give expiession to
their confidence and tliui strengthen
the hands of the- whole country in
the face of the world. Mr. Glad
stone was greeted with prolonged
cheeiing at the close of his speech.
On a motion by Mr. Gladstone
the following day, to give the vole
of censure discussion precedence
oer all other business, the Parnel
lile members became noisy, and
upon a ruling of the speaker against
them William O'Hiicu, editor of
United Ireland, shouted out, "Wo
will remember this in Ireland." For
this he was named by the speaker,
and a motion of Mr. Gladstone to
suspend the named member passed
by 211 to 20. This speaker ordered
O'Brien lo withdraw, whereupon he
arose, straightened himself up lo
his full height, and exclaiming with'
great precision and saic.tsm, "Cer
tainly, sir; I will withdraw from the
House with more pleasure than I
entered it," strode out.
At a caucus ofjConservative Peers
and Commoners, that evening, the
Msirquis of Salisbury was fervently
cheered upon declining that ho was
confident of tho defeat of the Gov
ernment, and that he was ready to
assume the lcsponsibilitics of olllce.
In the House of Lords Baron
Wcntworth moved an amendment to
the vote of censure that had also
been moved there. The amendment
declares Her Majesty's forces should
not occupy the Soudan longer than
necessary, and, in the interests of
Egypt and the British Empire, it is
undesirable to prevent the Egyptian
people from exercising their right to
select their own Government.
The Marquis of Salisbury's motion
of censure w:is adopted by the
Lords by 183 to 08. Lord Noith
cotc's motion of censure was reject
ed by the Commons by ."02 to 2SS,
giving the Government a majority
of M. The vote was taken on the
27th ult. Mr. Goschen and a sec
tion of the Whigs, together with tiic
Parnellite members, voted against
Latest advices indicate that the
Ministry lias decided to remain in

A number of Gen. Gordon's des
patches have been published in Lon
don. From a letter dated Dec. 1-1 lb
it appears Gordon never said he
could hold out for years, but on the
contrary lie declared that food was
scarce and relief should bo sent to
him at once.
The Marquis of Lorne has depre
cated, in a letter, the British sul
vaucc against Khartoum, now that
Gordon is dead. "The British,"
lie' contends, "should be satisfied lo
tsike up a- position on the Nile to
block the Mahdi from advancing in
to Lower Egypt."
The Italian force at Massowsli
will be raised to ft, 000 effective
troops and eighteen cannons. Forti
fications there sire being greatly
strengthened by the Italians. The
Italian Government has sent 100,

of camels. This action indicates
that Italy intend to take steps for
the relief of Kassaia. Tho second
