The Act fromJtbe com. on Finance to reduce
the road tax was read a second time.
Mr. Fnnk moved to amend by abolishing
the road tax altogether. On the Island of Hawaii
the people were not able to make decent roads in
12 days, and if we reduce the days to 6 it was tan
tamount to abolishing.
Mr. Marshall defended the bilL The present
tax was too high. Would gladly accept a substi
tute if members would propose one better for the
Mr. Metcalf objected to the bill 1st, because
the present tax was not sufficient to ensure good
roads. 2nd, Because by it all rich and poor were
taxed alike. Had a new bill already prepared.
Mr. Rhodes was in favor of the bilL Thought
that with a small yearly appropriation the reduced
tax would suffice.
Mr. Funk repeated his objections on the ground
of the uselessness of trying to do anything with
roads on Hawaii in six days7 labor.
Mr. Robertson supported the bilL Thought it
wu too early to attempt to apportion taxes accord
ing to property.-' The present tax was too heavy
and the reduction proposed was judicious.
Mr. Wakeman thought the sooner taxes were
apportioned according to property the better, and
opposed the bilL

of in the usual manner.
A message was received from the House of Nobles

carrying of deadly weapons. Amendment concurred
The committee on Foreign Relations reported that
they had examined into the difficulties between IT.
II. Maiestv's Government and the Republic of
France. In examining witnesses the committee had
disagreed. Mr. Rhodes wishing to ask questions of
the Minister of Public Instruction, which the rest ol
the committee objected to as irrelevant. Mr. K. laid
the matter before the House, and asked its authority
to propound the questions which he thought neces
sarv to elicit the truth.
Mr. Funk explained His reason Xs one of the
committee) for objecting to the questions being put,
which was, that they (the questions) belonged to the
committee on Education, and had nothing to do with
Mr. Rhodes founded his reasons for wishing to ask
the qustions, upon Art. 2, of the treaty with France
of March 26, 1846. Asked leave of the House to put
all the questions to the Minister of Public Instruc
tion, required to elicit the truth.
Mr. Kaumaea, (as one of the committee,) stated
that he and two others of that committee had no ob
jection to the questions being asked, but thought
that the committee on taucauon snouia meet wiui
them and ask the Questions.
Mr. Marshall was in favor of the most searching
enquiry into this matter. But thought that it waa
the duty of the committee on Education solely to
make inquirr into matters connected with schools.
Oncred, as chairman ot tne committee on xiuui-auuu,
to ask any proper questions. .
Mr. Rhode? repeated that it was his place to ask
Mr. Funk, in a somewhat lengthy speech, went
into the matter of dispute between the Catholics and
Protestants. The Protestants Had lor a long series
of rears entirely supported the schools, and even
clothed the children at their own expense. Now
however, thev had nothine whatever to do with the
iirTort or control of schools. It was evident that
the catholics were endeavoring, by tvery possible
means to get the controlling power of th schools
into their hands. After much more in the same
strain he concluded by saying that the committee on
Foreign Affairs had nothing whatever to do with the
matter of schools. - ,
Mr. Sheldon supported the motion to allow the
committee to inquire of the Minister of Public In
struction. Wished to have the vexed question set
tled. It was not through fear of France but a desire
to see the matter settled, that he supported the mo
nT th committee instructions to make the
fullest inquiry of every one andinto everything
connected with tne subject. 3 ,
Several other members joined in the debate and
on the question being put, leave was not granted.
Mr. Rhodes then read a protest against the action
of the House in this matter, with the request that it
might be placed upon the minutes. .
On motion the orders of the day were then taken
UPThe bill licensing stallions was then taken up on a
second reading and debated in committee of the

bate ensued, and the bill was finally referred to a se
lect committee to amend, when the committee rose.
A message was received from the House of Nobles,
returning as rejected, the act from this House reduc

InpoaxAKx Correction. A very important er
ror inadvertantly occurred in the Report of the Min
ster of Public Instruction, as published in the Poly!
nesian of last wek to which we would call especia!
attention. The number of deaths is there reported as
5,792jrhe correct number is 2,792. Corrected, the
report reads as inthe original manuscript :
- - Births, during 1851, i- 2,424
Deaths, do do - 'V 2792
Excess of deaths, 359 "
or less than one half per cent of the entire popula
tion of 80,000.
If the above statistics are to be relied upon, they
afford evidence that the ratio of decrease is much less
than in years past; and also that the number of births
has greatly increased since 1849. The statistics for
that year, tasen in January, 1850, showed, that the
deaths during the preceding year had been 4,320
Births, - ... . . 1422.
Excess of deaths, 298
a rate somewhat over 7 per cent, reduced in 1851 to
less than one half of one per cent
Should this state of facts be sustained, even for
another year, the excess would be in favor of the in
crease of the aboriginal population at the rate of 5
or 6 per cent.
We most sincerely rejoice in the above hopeful ex
hibit of the tate of the nation. It affords an addi-
- a -
nonai stimulant to Uie friends and well-wUhers of
the Hawaiian people to exert every influence to re
vive the almost extinguished vitality of the race, that
can possiby have a tendency in that direction.

that two vessels seized in Chile by a band of des
peradoes, and which put to sea as it was supposed
on a piratical expedition, have both been taken by
H. B. M.'s war steamer " Virago." One of these
vessels was the American three masted schooner
M Florida," and the other, the English brig Eliza
Cornish," the latter vessel having a valuable cargo
on board, valued at $150,000. Mr. Shaw, owner
of the Florida, Mr. John Talbot, master ot the
