Meeting .Stock Exchange, at 11.
A few days ago we rcf cried ap
provingly to a letter in our columns,
which suggested the names Of a new
Ministry for a fresh dcpartuic in
politics. It was not upon the gioilnd
of the weight pf the uarues presented,
upon which we offered no opinion,
that we wore gratified to have such
an utterance of sentiment from
among the people. The proposal
took us by sui prise, coming as it did
from a quarter in which it had been
complained there was no 'interest
taken in public matters. Apart
from all question of the names for
one time for discussing those has
not come yet it is a healthy sign to
'see that some people have the pio
pcr notion of' a basis for national
politics. Even supposing the pre
sent Administration to be able to
secure a iencwcd lease of power at
the next elections, of which it lias
increasing pioniisc the longer dis
union and inaction among its oppo
nents is piotiacted, it is highly im
portant that cvciy inch of the ground
should be contested. It makes a
great deal of difference whether the
Ministry enters upon a new
term without having been com
pelled to enunciate its policy upon
all impoitant questions or not.
The only way to make Ministers
have u' definite policy beyond that of
holding their places is to pit able
aspirants to power against them upon
a platform of well-defined principles.
Allow them to gel n fresh hold of
the reins of power without putting
them to the trouble of declaring
their intentions, and it would be
almost miraculous if their adminis
tration of affairs proved to be satis
factory. Even far more able and
virtuous men thau oven their friends
will claim them to be would be liable
to make many blundeiB if a systcm
ized, healthy lcstraint of public
opinion and wholesome fear of the
consequences of false steps are not
constantly before their eyes.
Everybody must be getting sick
and tired of the desultory style of
political warfare in vogue in thii
Kingdom. Every now ipw and then
there is n great rjzz over an act of
tho Government pi' a development
of its policy in.Boino ptuticulnr Hue.
The fizz generally ends in a fizzle,
and the Government is confitmed in
its course whether right or wiong.
Often the press, with the constancy
that should characterize tlmt potent
engine, continues harping away upon
an unredressed public grievance long
after one. of those spasmodic obtilll
lions of public opinion has tiled onl,
and the most listless cmia upon which
its tittctruicos full liclonc frequently.
lo nil appearance, to those wlio ueic
nt the brginniiij; the most jealous
anil uncompromising opponuntn of
the thing complained of. or advo
cate of that which was debited.
Why shouhl these things be fo?
What malefic spell is it that thus
paialyr.es devotion to principle, and
makes cffoit dioop on the vcigo of
triumph? Let thoo who complain
in the ear concerning the manage
ment of national affairs, dcclaic
from the housetops, if they know,
what sue the causes that conduce
to prevent the nation leceiving the
benefit of ptaclical politics to infuse
life and vigor into cvciy fibre of the
body politic. Our coi respondent,
whose second letter appears to-day,
has made a proposal that, at the
jcnsl, should bo sulllcicnt for a
stalling point in the now dcpartuic
which few intelligent patriots will
deny to be essential to a more cate
ful, vigorous, anil progressive gov
ernment of the Kingdom than it has
ever yet enjoyed.
The Friend gives no uncertain
sound upon the currency question.
It says : " Nothing is more certain
limn the fact that, unless some action
is taken by the Government by
which the present quantity of silver
Shall be largely reduced, and the
excess permanently withdrawn, Ha
waii's business must be conducted
upon the basis of our 85-ccnt silver
dollar. The lcsult is inevitable.
AVhen that result comes the great
loss and haidsliip will not fall upon
capitalists, and tradesmen, and
planters those classes in the King
dom best able to cnduic it but
upon the wot king men, and salaried
men, the veiy por.-ons least able to
Skating is no exception to the nilc
that too much even of a good thing
is injurious. Parents and all having
young people under their contiol
should insist upon the latter being
moderate in their indulgence in the
exercise. Plenty of air in the rinks
would do away with one of the most
valid objections to the amusement.
Every second or third board knock
ed out of closu rinks and lattice
woik substituted would fulfil this
object. It would not require great
inventive genius, we should think,
to produce a skate that would be
less of a strain on the ankle and
capable of more facile operation
.ithan the kinds now in use.
The Rev. A. D. Mayo, a Southern
clergyman, draws a lamentable pic
ture of the illiteracy of the Southern
States. In the sixteen States, out
of a population of -1,000,000 under
21 years of age, little more than
2,000,000 are enrolled in schools,
and not one-half of the 1,800,000
coloicd children arc upon the school
registers. The average attendance
is far below the enrolment. Many
schools arc only in session five, and
sonic even Unco months of the year.
Teachers receive beggarly pittances
lo requite their toil and stimulate
their devotion. Onc-thiid of the
voters of Kentucky can neither icad
nor write, and one-third of her child
rcn arc not in school. Thcic is a
counliy much older in civilization
which is far behind Hawaii in u most
NEW POLITICS AND NEW MEN.
Ewtok Buu.i:ri.v: As you very
properly stated in ono of your late
articles, the political tioublo of this
country is the isolated "chaotic"
existence of the political body, who
have had hitheito no life, no means,
nor shown any wish of meeting, for
expressing and discussing opinions,
anil for organizing any lcgular and
lawful action. Further, we lack men
of resolute standing to look out to,
as leadeis, counsellors, beacons if 1
could use the word, in the political
struggle. They must he of courso
men of ability, weight, and experi
ence, if possible, but they must
also above all have well-known and
decided opinion on political matters.
Now, the gentlemen which my
friends and myself in the communi
cation your valuable paper eo very
kindly inserted on March 19th last,
we designated as being, in our esti
mation, suitable men for assuming a
prominent place in our political
woild, wc choose on account of their
having expressed some very vigo
rous, decided, sound, and practical
views, on some of our most import
ant questions. Wc further hoped,
expected, tlmt our initiative might
hac induced them to conic out lie
foro tho public and oxpteas more
fully their gcncial lews, and stale
whether Ihoy would bo willing, if
limes came, lo stand for tho people
and lo serve the country . As no
answer from them has yet appealed
wo supposo that our nolo has not
been deemed worthy of attention;
pciluips from its being sttionyinoiu.
though I do not think tlmt our names
could give our idea any tnoie weight
if it bo good in itself.
Hut what wo lack in authority the
press might assume, and 1 have been
thinking that you might help tho
practical solution we are looking for
by having your reporter Interview
the gentlemen mentioned in my pic
uous note, viz., R. I Dillingham,
A. Marques, .1. M. lloincr, and S.
R. Dole, so as lo ascertain their
sentiments in the matter. If they
are not to be depended upon otliPi.s
might be suggested until some
specific names had been obtained, for
all men intercntetl in politics like
ourselves to be rallied, guided1' by,
names worthy of organizing and
uniting efforts for. With good
leaders, and unity of action, tho
victory is not doubtful, no more than
it would have been oven at the last
election, if the thou candidates of
"Opposition" had come out on a
broad, frank, resolute platform, in
stead of keeping such a prudent
silcmc, through which theyccitainly
lost a good man' sympathies.
A Future Voteu,
Colonel Elliott, who is the Texas
Commissioner at the New Orleans
Exposition, has got himself into
trouble. A Dallas youth, who
imagines that ho is an artist, brought
him a beautiful landscape he had
painted, and told him he wanted it
exhibited at New Orleans. "Certain
ly, sir ; certainly," replied Colonel
Elliott. "But I want a card put on
it stating that it is not for sale."
"I don't think that there is the
slightest necessity lor that, ' re
marked Commissioner Elliott, taking
another glance at tho work of ait.
Never judge a man by the umbrel
la he carries; it is laicly his own.
