Below the woolsack is a table, and on each side
tre ranged the orators and partisans of two re3t
sections which, under some name or other, always
have existed, and always will exist in our national
history. The uninitiated call them Conservatives
and Reformers the wiser simply term them ' the
men who are in office, and the men who are not.
The Government for the tme being, sits on the
right hand of the Lord Chancellor, who acts as
Speaker, and who has a fr easier birth of it, than
Mr. Shaw Lefevrc. The Lords are nt lonir-wind-ed,
nor noisy; not passionate, and, like true Britons,
always adjourn to dinner. Hence no postpran
dial scenes arc visible. In the sni ill hours, no
patriots, sraeliinj strongly of whiskey and water
and cijars, expatiate to a wearied assembly on
:hit ever-fertile theme, the wrongs and woes ot
the Greeu Isle. The lords, likc'Mr. Wordsworth's

is on his le;s, and its long-resounding cheers when
o:r.e favorite partisan sits down. All is staid, and
correct, and proper, with the exception of a tirade
fa:a the Rupert of debate and some father in God
oa the Episcopal Bench. We would fain say a
ord about the Episcopal Bench. One could hard
ly exoect to find a minister of the self-denyinj and
lowly Jesus of Nazareth sitting in a gorgeous
nsuse with the proudest of the English peers.
You would expect to find these reverend frentle
mea by the bedside of the sick, in the hour's of
the poor, combating with the rice and infidelity of
the day; or else vou would look tor them in their
tudies, surrounJed with stately folios; or m the
midst of th :ir clergy, reviving the faint-hearted,
urging onthetimiH, counselling the young, and
girding up the energies and hearts of all. You
would expect to find them in the House of the
Lord, rather thin in the House of Lords. In short,
nywhere but ia the turmoil of party conflict.
This, however, is not the case. The bishops are
almost the first object that attracts th eye. They
it oa benches by themselves, on the Government
side, beyond the ministerial bench. In the dark
religious light of the Upper House, you can
"carceW make out what they are. You see vener
able wigs, and black robes, and lawn sleeves; and
f you loak sharp, you may, at times, catch the
outline of a reverend face most probably of the
deep lineaments of Charles James cf London, or
of Thi pug noe and plhcim prfi "f Samuel of

Coming lower down, our eyesre3ton the men

U as pert and -ready as any forward youth in a de
bating club, and has much of the appearance and
manner of such a one. He gives you no great
idea of hereditary statesmanship, the only quality
conspicuous in him being a tolerable amount of
modest assorance. perfectly natural to a peer who
is an author, and has lectured at mechanics' insti
tutions, and read papers before the British Asso
ciation. A strong contrast is presented by the
next illustrious ptrsonage a severe, well-made,
heavy, gray-haired man, who sits almost silent and
sullen, a3 if he had no feelings, as if the debate
was a sham, and ho should ba glad if it were over.

the best-abused man at this time in her gracious
Majesty's dominions, bat without whom, neverthe
less, it is questionable whether the Queen's Gov
ernment could be carried on. Unfortunately; Lord
Aberdeen is not the man for the public. The pub
lic likes to be gammoned, and his Lordship cannot
gauiui n. He is spare in words, cold and unim
passioned in delivery, and somewhat too indifferent
to party attacks. The other ministers sit below
him ; they are none of theiu distinguished for ora
torical power one of the best of them is the good-
tempered looking hurl Granville, who has managed
to succeed belter in the Upper House than he did
in the Lower. He is a better speaker than his il

On the neighboring benches are seated discon
tented Whigs, overlooked in the scramble for placo

therefore, view its proceedings with an impartial,
but vet a jealous eye. Prominent amongst such is

the House of Lords looks like a house of but'ers.
We think th-; satirist is tinj'ist. At any rate the
peers are well dressed. Hats, irloves, boots, and
frock-coats are all un-xeeptionable. We need not
say, in this respect, ihe House of Lords presents a
very different appeircnc to the House of Com
mons. Yet the Lords need not be so particular
about tiieir " jrorgeous array there are seldom
more than half-a-dozen ladies present to admire
and reward their display. The Lords are more
polite than the Commons. Such ladies as arc
present take their seats in the gallery, where they
can see and be s?ci; in the other house, as our
readers know, the case is different. Cut even the
ladies, we d ire say. would not mind being treated
as the Commons treat them, if the debates in the
Lords were ns ;c oil as in the Commons. If the
peers did not dess so well and were not si rxces
sively polite, but spoke better, no ureal harm would
be done ; but there's the difEcuIty. It is difficult
for a polite man to be ill-bred, and to lose his
temper, am' say sharp things. In the House of
Commons nothing is easier. Say something bitter
and you will hive a murmur of applause be sav
ajje, and at any rate your own party will cheer ;
but in the Lords you can't ifel up the semblance of
earnestness. The whole tiling seems too much
like play an apology for busings, and that is all.
No man can speak to twenty sleepy peers as he
could to four or five hundred eag2r partisans. No
man can be impressive in the bosom of his family
and the Lords are a family party, all connected,
or nearly so ; and if a stranger comes in, he soon
ajics the fashionable tone, and becomes as dull and
apathetic as the rest. And why should a lord be
otherwise? A lord is not more a lord for having
brains nor the less a lord for being without. In
tellect, skill, orato.y, are no helps-are unneces
sary in an hereditary institution. Sir Robert I eel
knew this, and lived and died a commoner. Chat
ham became comparatively a small man when he
took a pension and a peerage.. So was it with
Walpole, when, meeting his old rival Pulteney,
after they Lad both been raised to the peerage, he
exclaimed, "Here wr are, my Lord, the two most
insignificant personages in Europe." The Lpper
House but registers the decision of the Lower
the business of the country iscarried ou elsewhere.
But while we have been looking at the
house, the debate has closed. Lord Malmes
bury has asked a question, and made an at
tack. Lord Derby has uttered a few petulant
remarks, to which Lord Aberdeen has made a cold
and form .1 reply to which, some of the disappoint
ed Vhis have added a little independent criticism
on their own account. Two or three exquisites
have been discussing little matters of their own,
till they find that if thev stop much longer, they
will be too late for Rotten Row, and the house
merely waits for Lord Monteagle to sit down and
go home. Happily, his noble lordship is briefer
than his wont, and the Lord High Chancellor de
clares the house adjourned. Rushing outside, we
catch hasty glimpses of our bered.tary legislators
as they, m fashionable brougham or on a splendid
blood, stan for their purks or respective Belgravian
homes. We also, in more plebeian manner, do
the same. We .re sure the reader will have had
enough of the lords for one night. He will hav
found out that they are not much better orators or
speakers than other men that even lords stammer,
utter incoherent remarks, display poverty of ideas
and more, the great merit of a night in the ords
is, that it is soon over. If the lords be dull, at
at ony rate they sre short. '1 o be dull and lone

(L We announce with great regret the death
of Mr. Z. Kaauwai, on the 8th instant, in Maka
wao, East Maui. He was a Circuit Judge, and a
man of considerable importance on the island men
tioned. During Hoapili's governorship the de
ceased was considered as an active and capable
assistant in many kinds of business. Uf late years
he has been returned several tunes to represent a
district in the Legislature, and though not free
from peculiar views, he took a high place amongst
the members of that body. He was also a mem
ber of the Land Commission for several years. By
industry and thrift he had become a man of wealth,
and is said to have been liberal in supporting what
he thought was worthy of assistance. In conver
sation he was urbane and cheerful : and his loss
leaves a gap, not amongst the chiefs, but the old
class of chiefs' "right-hand men." He was about
fifty years of age, and whilst living could relate
much that was interesting connected with a former
state of society, of which our written memorials
are meagre in the extreme.
It appears that 3,215 bushels of wheat have been

At the late exhibition of the Native Hawaiian
Agricultural Society, Kt-kaha of East Maui was
awarded a premium of 1U for the best wheat ex
hibited, and Mikoa a premium of $S for the next
best specimen. The people of Mukawuo and Kula
will receive this year 12,000 for their wheat, and
unless the weather prove very unfavorable, or they
go very clumsily to work, there is no reason why
they should not get 25,000 next year ; 25,000
is always something.
It is very desirable that the people of other
places should try the cultivation of wheat ; no kind
of field labor is better adapted for the Hawaiians.
and it pays well. Kohala in Hawaii, and Kalae
in M dokai are supposed to be well situated for the
Coarse Wheat Meal fur Breud.
During the past winter I tried a number of ex
periments in making bread with hulled wheat
coars.dv irround. Wueat irround o that imn thi'i-,1
yp two-tnirds of it jwissed through a clutn wjtli
meshes ot twcnty-sevim to the inch, made good sweet
bread. A small circle of friends who partook of it,
said they would like to have some of it every day,
ou account of its excellent llavor und its healthful
nature. There is no necessity for grinding hulled
wheat so fine as is now dune in making flour, any
more than there is to grind quick-lime for mortar.
The way to make bread from the wheat meal is to
separate the finer portions from the coarser through
a bolt cloth ot the mesti named, tnen steep the coarse
part in wator at from IJO to 11UU degrees. When
use meal all becomes soft, the liner kind .mrf
yeast are added, aud made into a dough, and put
tntj cast-iron puns to rise ; these are ufterwi'rds
baked in the usual manner
My experiments were
t.rf,.rmed in ma&in? bread for the fumilr nn.l I
r - a - - - j , .
inked m a stove oven. In some cxnernnenr I mit.
ed tin salt with the yeast instead of with the meal
and water first, but the bread did not rise well,
f his may explain the cause of heavy LreaJ being
sometimes produced from the same llour and yeast.
Althougu 1 believe that hulled wheat ground into
coarse meal makes sweeter aud uijic healthy bread
than fine fl our, it will be very difficult to get most
persons to believe this : rejudice in old ways is a
great barrier to usjful improvements. I will cite
a case of this kind tliat came under my own obser
vation. A year ago last winter, I sold some meal
of hulled wiieat to a neighbor, who after taking it
home, could not get bis wife to try it, so he brought
it back and explained the difficulty. I invited him
to dinner, and served him with wheat meal brtad,
und a " minute pudding" made of the Same meal.
He liked them so well that ha took some of the
bread home, and his meal back again with him.
Cut it was ot ix j use ; his w ife ordered the children
not to cat it, aud ibey would not, and sho declared
it unfit to cat ; so he brought me back the meal
again, and I paid him b.clt his money. Such are
some of the difficulties which many persons meet
with, who endeavor to improve tnc condition of
Others of my neighbors, however, like it, and
have beeu willing to exchange their best smoked
ham for my brown bread. "
Ihe use ot meal inaue rom hulled wheat would
save millions of dollars to our people every year,
but the greatest gain would be an improvement in
health by removing one great cause of constipation,
so peculiar to those who use line flower. I have
made at the rate of ISO lbs. of good moist bread
from 1UU lbs. of hulled w heat meal. The wheat
was raised in Kentucky, was white, aud of good
quality. Ked winter wiieat, however, makes the
sweetest bread. The Mediterranean wheat hulls ea
sy,uiake8 good bread, is the most hardy, yields best,
and is not so subject to attacks of insects as other
kinds. Ejc. Pajter.
