Majorilr Report of Committee the A tMemd
mcuu to the Constitution.
Hoise of Nobles. Aug. 12, 18C
Tbs undersigned, your Committee to whom wj.s re
ferred the amendments to the Constitution p.is-ed by
the Hon. House of Representatives, and the muend
ments proposed by His Excellency the Minister for For
eign Affairs, b g respectfully to report that they have
carefully considered the matters committed to thenx,
and now recommend to the House of Nobles to adopt
the amendments passed by the IIou- of Representatives,
because they approve of them so f.ir as they go. And
your Committee are ot tke opinion that at this stage of
the session, wliic h they hope is near its close, it is not
xpeiicnt to take up for consideration any new amend
Minority Report or Committee Ijoa
menla to the Constitution.
The undersigned, appointed as a committee by the
House of Nobles, to consider the articles of amendrueut
to the Constitution, initiated and passed by the House
of Representatives,' August o, aud also the ar
ticles of auieudjivnt presented in this House by Mr.
Wyllie, on th 128 1 h ultimo, have the honor to present
the following report :
The present Constitution is a failure. It does not
meet the necessities of the iople, or the wants of the
country. Experience has shown its raauifold defects,
and the repeated attempts to amend it are but the evi
dences of universal dissatisfaction with its policy. It is
incongruous, aod in many respects absurdly incon
sistent. While it professes to recognize the principles of
Constitutional Monarchy, it attempts to sanctiou the
most radical ideas of Democracy. In other words, it
dovetails together two systems perfectly incongruous,
which have no sympathy with each other, and which
mut forever be at perjietunl variance.
These two systems may bs made to assimilate, but
th' ir extremes cm never work well together. There
will never be harmony ia the State," or perfect political
repose, until all these dicor Jant elements are properiy
blended and assigued to the condition they ought to oc
cupy. l iie Constitution of lS-2 was perhaps wisely con
ceived, but n one can ex inline its provisions without
noticing tint it isnar tided in its effects discarding the
ancient order of things, and founding upon theory a
system of govern raent which no actual Hawaiian expe
r.euce e -uM pretend to justify.
Systems of government are generated, not made by
arbitrary construction. They grow up from circum
stances of habit, of long-continued policy, or ancient
habit or usage. The oi l Hawaiian institutions were
feu lal, or, at least, semi-feudal, lhey admitted none
of the Republican ideas of self-government based upon
a full and unqualified popular representation. Here
was the grand mistake of the framers of our Constitu
tion. They seen to have fancied that Hawaii was a
part of the American Union, and that all the laws, in
s;itutions and usages of the descendants of Anglo-Stxon
freemen were adapted to a nomadic people just emerged
from a state of barbarism.
The Constitution is very good in its way. It is most
thoroughly republican more so than the Constitutions
cf many of the American States, and quite as well
alapted (perhaps somewhat better) to California or
New York than to the Hawaiiau Kingdom.
The prerog itive of the Crown is reduced to a shadow ;
the authority of the old Chiefs is obliterated, and pr.ic
tisally the welfare of the nation is controlled unwisely
by those who biennially assemble to make lawa as rep
resentatives of the people, elected by universal suffrage.
All this in theory, if we profess to be republicans, is
Correct. But the Government is a Mouarchy. The
institutions of the country should partake of the same
character. A Royal head and a Republican body are
wholly incongruous, just as much as the reverse wouIJ
ith all its good qualities, with the entire sum of its
excellencies, the Constitution of the kingdom needs re
vision and thorough amendment It does not suit the
times or the character of the country, it is unfit for
t he style of institutions under which we profes to Jive.
1 lie efficiency of the Government is impaired by its
cumbrous machinery, and the dignity of the Sovereign
bora of its chief j splendor. It is uot unjust to add thai ,
the prosperity of the people, the development of the na
tional energies, and the general good are greatly re
tarded by I he slow, uncertain, and inefficient adminis
tration of pnblio affairs, which now necessarily exists.
The amendments proposed by the House of Repre
sentatives are based upon correct principles, and may
generally be approved. But they do not go far enough.
They are defective in a want of extent more than in
The amendments pending in this House are minute,
well conceived, and well calculated to introduce salutary
reforms. If ia the sense of the last Article of the Con
stitution, it be deemed desirable to submit amendments
for the consideration of the people and the action of the
next Legislature, it will be well to consider them to
gether, and embody all their excellencies ia & siugle
But if the Constitution be radically defective, if it
be conceded that it fails to promote the highest welfare
of the people, and of the State, there is a more direct
remedy which can lawfully be applied.
There is a gradual and tedious mode of amendment
provided by the list Article of the Constitution itself.
Formerly, when there were annual sessions of the Leg
islature, there was no great difficulty. But now we
have biennial sessions, and four years are required to
institute even the most common r form. Fortunately
we are not restricted altogether, either legally or po
litically, by the terms of that Article Amendments
may be adopted in the manner pointed out by it, but it
docs not follow that they must be so established.
Almost all the Americau State Constitutions provide
as ours does, for gradual revision through legislative
and popular action, yet everybody knows that conven
tions are constantly culled to change the fundamental
laws. It is a sound political maxim that the power of
the State which confers the rights of government may
modify and regulate them so as to promote the public
interests and welfare in the highest degree. Thus, in
the United States, the people from whom all power is
immediately derived, often change the details of their
Here, popular rights and free institutions were the
magnanimous grant of the Sovereign. The political
freedom of the subject, and the forms under which our
liberties are maintained, emanated from his unbiassel
benevolence. He gave us nationality ; he established
permanent order; he laid, by divesting himself of
power, the foundation of popular liberty.
The inference t be drawn from these considerations
is, that the Sovereign may, if iu his opini n the good
of the country requires it, iuitiate a revision of the Con
stitution without being fettered by the special firms of
amendment prescribed by its terms. He can submit of
his own will, a new fundamental law for the consider
ation of the different estates of his kingdom, or call a
convention cf those estates to devise a modification of
the existing mechanism of government. The authority
of initiation is in his hands But at the same time,
either of the other estates are privileged to offer re
The Legislature is in session. The chiefs and the
people are present by representation, and may easily
agree upon Some plan of action to promote the general
It is proposed, then, on the part of the Committee,
that a commission be established, the same as in 18GT,
to review the Constitution, in view of the amendments
proposed by both Houses, revise its objectionable fea
tures, and present the plan they :dopt fr the consid
eration of the King, the Nobles of the kingdom, aud the
The proposed amendments of the House of Represen
tatives, aud those brought forward in this House, as
well as the Constitution itself, should be referred to
such commission, with instructions to give them a fair
and careful consideration, such as the dignity of the
subject, the interests of the people and the welfare of
the kingdom alike demand.
In vit-w of these reasons, as expressed in the forego
ing paragraphs, the following joint resolution is re
spectfully submitted for the consideration of the Leg
Iir it r fuil red by the King. the S'tMs and Refreartitatire of
Vie ll'itnuum lilana, in Legixlatire Council aml(tl:
That three Commissioner he appointed, one to he chosen
by the Kins, one hy the House ot Nobles, and one by the lloue
oi" Representative, whose duty it shall he to revise the Con
stitiitiun, unit on fir hefore the beginning of January, Irti-'t,
submit their anion to Ilia Majesty the King, for such consid
eration as ia his wisdom may be deemed expedient ; that their
project of amendment to the old Constitution, or such new
Constitution as they may devise, be published by them in the
public journals for information, in the Hawaiian and English
lanri!ie, and that the same in His Majesty's discretion he
submitted for ratification or adoption to the Legislature at any
special or regular session thereof.
The foregoing are the views of your Committee. They
are submitted w ith great deference to the Nobles of the
kingdom, with the full assurance that they will be con
sidered as having been dictated only by motives which
concern the public welfare, the perpetuity of free insti

The clipper ship Southern Cro arrived on Saturday last, 13
days from San Francisco, bringing papers from that port of the
27th ulL From commercial reports we gather the following, as
received by telegraph on the evening of the 26th :
Gold declining in value, and quoted in Sew York the evening
of the 55th at 144" per cent, premium, while many classes of
goods were still advancing ; and by telegraph from Eastern house
to their California correspondents, directing them to withdraw
their goods from market rather than dispose of them at anything
like rates ruling then. They say, however, that tariff changes
havwnuch to do with it. A large amount of money lately float
Iapfiout is being withdrawn from circulation, and ii being awal
! up iu customs for duties on goods upon which new and in
cased tariffs were levied on the 1st.
In domestic trade we have but little to notice.
SUGAR Sales of small lots ofbestgrales for shipment at 7
RICE About IU0 tons of Paddy and hulled rice goes forward
per Comet. We notice the hulling machine of Col. Prendergast,
adjoining the Foundry, is iu successful operation, turning out
daily about 3,iXmi pounds of well cleaned rice.
PI" IX No sales to report. About 300 bales goes forward per
Cornet on producer's account.
COFFEE tock small, aud limited to local trade. Held at 20
cents for parcels.
FUNGUS But little in market. Shipment or some 30,000 lbs.
per Southern Crown. If eld a: S.Hj'c.
HIDES Cometition amongst purchasers have advanced rates
SKINS Large, 4llc ; small. 30c.
In general merchandise, we quote all kinds of Cotton Goods at
an advance ; Cordage is in great uYmand at advanced rates .
Tar, 25 $30 bbl.; Pitch, $ j ; Cotton Duck, from 60cai5c'
per yard ; Tobacco is tobacco, and likely to be for some time to
come. We quote the following from llunt't MrrcJianVf Maga
zine for June :
44 The exports of tobacco from New York for four months of
the current year have fallen off from two and a quarter million
of pounds to less than one-quarter of a million as compared with
the two preceding years, and fir the reason the Tobacco is not to
be had in the country. Since the rebellion commenced not one
box of manufactured Tobacco has arrived in New York from
Virginia, and it is now over a year since any addition has been
made to New York stocks, while the consumption has been going
on throughout the country as usual. To tins we only add that
the stocks here are considered light white prices are daily ad
vancing." The Comet sails to-morrow with a full freight, consisting of
sugar, paddy, pulu. hides and skins.
The k'utliUrn, for Victoria, will sail in about a week, taking
molasses, snar, rice and pulu.
