as when it last arose, without being settled,
in the case of Whistler ts. Foster. It came
azain before tbe Court of Queen's Bench
last week, and that court held, that a cheque
which purported to be payable to order on
demand, was not invalid because post-dated.
It appeared in tbe course of tbe case Eman

bankers in tbe city of London not to pay any
cbeqnes drawn oy tneir customers ana Known
to the bankers to be post-dated. The action
having been brought against tbe bankers for
failimr to honor a cheque of tbls kind, they
were held exempt from liability, tbe custom
beinr part of the contract with customer.
Had no such system existed, tbe plaintiff
would have recovered damages, tne uonrt re

SnsGcxAR Phexomesox Dkttsg cp or a
Laez rs Michigan. A correspondent of the
Coldwaterf Mlchizan,) CaxttU gives some par
ticulars connected with tbe recent disappear
ance of the water from Ottawa Lake:
For some davs past Ottawa Lake, In Mon
roe county, has presented a very exciting
scene. The occasion was this. Those living
near the lake observed for some days previous
that the ice on the lake was (ailing. Soon
they discovered that tbe fish were crowding
to the holes in the ice where they watered
their cattle. They increased In numbers,
both lam and small, tbe former bavin? their
mouths wide open, and so exhausted that tbe
people caught them with their hands- As
many teams daily visited the lake, hauling,
stones from Its snores, for buDding purposes,
tbe news soon spread to a distance ail around.
The work of quarrying and hauling stones
wan soon abandoned, and in a abort time
scores of teams and hundreds of men might
be sees on and around me fake, ine men
with handspikes, crowbars and axes, were
busily engaged In cutting and raising huge
pieces of ice, and then stooping down and
lifting tbe tUh, some of which were dead.
some alive, and some frozen fast in tbe Ice,
for the water having departed from the lake
by some, subterraneous! passage, the vast
sheet of ice lay oa the bottom.' For three
days immense quantities of fish were carried
away, principallv pick era! and bass, while
vast quantities of white fish were left to rot
on the Ice and in the mud for del and Ice
are all that is left of Ottawa Lake. Numer
ous pieces of the Ice are left s landing 0 n edge,
iiKe so many grave sunea. ine nsr, rawer
it bed, or graveyard, presents a novel scene.
Some say the water will soon return by the
same source dv which it departed, brirzlr.ga
fresh supply offish with it for Lake Erie i
supposed to be its headquarters. It will be
well if it does, otherwise sickness may be
(cared in the viciritj ot the burying ground
of Ottawa Lake. In the meantime the far
mers is the vicinity will greatly feel the loss
of the departed waters. About seven wan
ago, I ara told, this lake departed ia the
same way, and old men say it departs and

Mr. E. Jones asked permission to introduce
certain bills, of which be had given notice.
An Act to provide for the erection of a Light
House ct Honolulu.
An Act to provide for a special Road Super,
visor at Lahaina.
His Ex., F. W. Hutchison moved to reject
this bill, because it conflicted with the exist
ing law, which was sufficient to meet tho re
quirements of the case. A Road Supervisor
was already appointed for Labaina, according
to tbe Jfaraitax Guitttt, of April 29, 1SSS.
BUI was rejected.
An Act to admit copper for Hawaiian vessels
free of duty.
Mr. Bishop asked permission to introduce a
new rule. Granted. Tho rule was, that in

Mr. Pilipo ottered a resolution, that the
House take into consideration the rights of a

and that tbe latter part of the report of tbe

in that district, be stricken out.
Mr. Hitchcock said that the resolution was

The bill passed its first reading.
His Ex., S. H. Phillips asked leave to in
troduce the bill to indemnify the Minister of

eent for twelve per cent.
Mr. Lyons gave notice of certain bills.
An Act to admit certain tanning materials
free of duty.
An Act to amend section 421 of the Civil
Mr. Keawehunahala moved a reconsidera
tion of Mr. Kalakaoa's Act to amend section
I, chapter 47, or the Civil Code. He thought
it great injustice that Hawaiiaus were not al
lowed to purchase liquor, while all foreign sub
jects of tbe crown eould purchase all they
wished for, and no restriction was laid upon
their rights. It was class legislation of the
most tyranical sort. If tbe distinction was
made on the point of color, where was the
justice of allowing the blaekest negro to come
here and exercise bis own will in regard to
this, while a tfori: Hawaiian subject was for
bidden the same privilege? 3Ir. E. wished to ;
have the restriction regarding the sale ofj
liquors taken c&. lie sua mat jiawauaa 100a
was such, tbat drinking liquor after eating
was harmless, but in l-c case of foreigners,
their food was hot cooked, and eaten just from
the fire, and tben drinking- liquors,- the two
hot substances united, caused destruction of
health, and death.
3(r. Lyons thought that tbe reasons brought
forward by the member from naialua were
worthy of consideration. If there were sound
reasons far discussing this BUI, let it not be
rejected, and all expression of opinion stifled.
The people eould not help calling op and con
sidering laws givinir ngbts to one, and with
holding them from another. Therefore, he
supported the recomideratiou of the BUI.
The motion for reconsideration was lost.
Obsek or the Oat. A Bill to provide for
reports of judicial business was read by us

tion, increasing the pay of Representatives,

Mr. Knudsen objected to this amendment.
Several years ago three dollars was the pay
for each member per day. The members did
not ear how long the Assembly was in ses
sion, because the longer the session, the more
pay they received. Then, to expedite mat
ters, it was made a law that $150 should be
the compensation for each member, not oaly
to shorten the session, but la reduce the ex
penses of the country. Vet hardly four years
had elapsed, and we have under consideration
an amendment to increase our pay, a thing
that will certainly be opposed by our constitu
ents and the country generally. Therefore ho
morecfto table this amendment.
Mr. Hopa supported the motion to table, and
went farther ; he wished to have it indefinitely
Mr. Pilipo supported the amendment to Ar
ticle 58, because be thought that the members
should be well paid as well as the Ministers.
$10,000 was thought to be only enough for one
Minister for two years, bnt $150 was to pay a
member for tbat whole period. Compare the
two $10,000 and 2150-r$600 woold cover tbe
entire amount paid to the entire Representa
tives. Therefore, be supported tbe amend
ment. Mr. Upa supported tbe motion of Mr. Ho
pa. He thought the Constitution was very
well as it was.

The House went into Committee of ths
Whole for consideration of the bill. Mr.
Boyd called to the Chair.
On motion of His Ex., S. U. Phillips, tbe
biU was read item by item.
U. II., W. C Lunalilo moved to amend ths
first item of $35,000 for His Majesty to $39,.
Amended by Mr. Judd to $50,000.
Amended by Mr. Hitchcock to $40,000. n
thought that the Royal State should be main
tained in some degree to compare with tbat of
other Kingdoms, and the amount now set
down did not compare favorably with th
funds controlled by tha Kings of other lands.
Mr. Knudsen thought that the members
should not amend the various items is ths
bUI, for they were all prepared by the Minis
ters with great care, and with th approval of
His Majesty. He probably knew what bs
needed for bis private expenies, and the
amount was fixed as now before us.
Mr. Judd thought tbat if w were able, the
item should be made $100,000, for we should
by all means uphold the dignity of His Majesty-
Mi. Hopa did not intend to support Mr.
Judd. He thought that tbe resources of tha
country would not allow of sueh an appropria
tion. He wished to uphold the dignity of th
Crown, but the Royal Stat should accord with
the financial condition of the land.
Mr. Koakanu thought that if we were able,
be would rote for $500,000, but we cannot do
it. If tbe Ministers wish to raise the salary
of His Majesty, let them do it out of their
own "fat pickings." He thought that $30,
000 was fuUy sufficient. We eould find plenty
of internal improvements on which to use any
surplus, therefore, he moved that ths item bs
fixed at $30,000.
Mr. Kaukaha said, that on examination, be
discovered tbat this item had beeh continu
ally augmenting for several years past, there
fore he opposed raising it. The country was
in trouble enongn at present, on account of
the fearful eruptions on Hawaii. If we bava
any surplus funds, let it be spent is aid of tb
Air. Jlabelona tbcught this was the most
important item of the bUI, and plenty of tim
should be taken for its consideration. As for
himself, he supported the appropriation as it
