of the Government in its good repute with other na

a cordial recollection of My lamented Predecessors, as
of the disinterested aud patriotic men who aided
them in enrolling this Kingdom among the family of
nations. It will be my endeavor and in this I thall

Tho leading article in the Gazette of 'ast week ia
an etlort, by an argument derived from the history
of our Constit itious from the time of their first
crude origiu and departure from absolute autocratic
control over life, liberty and property, to
show that the only safe and legitimate beginning of
the new reign aud Government, is by and through
the Constitution of 1SCL This, even if spurious ia
its origiu, must be sworu to by the Sovereign to give
him legitimate status. In order to reinstate a Con
stitution, never legally abrogated, be must subscribe
to one that waa never legally instituted. We think
the propositions by which this conclusion id reached
do not iu the least warrant it, quite the contrary.
Begiuuiug witii the recognition by Kamehameha HI.,
in 1K5'J, of the natural rights of man, this good King
grants a Constitution (18-10) "not to become final
until ratified by the people, which was never done,"
but though not finally compacted, it brought iuto
existence a House of Representatives of the people,
thenceforth to constitute one of the three members
of a Constitutional monarchical Government. And
a Legislature so constituted, it was, which, with the
Kiuir, passed the organic Acts, which gave our Gov
ernment substantially its present shape, and which
in 18o2 discussed, received and accepted the consti
tution. From that time, it was considered a com
pact, not to be varied by the arbitrary act of any
oue party to it. King, Nobles or people. It contained
ample provision for its own amendment, by deliberate
consideration and consent of the parties to it, and
in that prescribed mode, it was several times amended.
Kamehameha IV., a man of fine mind and of high
princely culture, took the throne without a question
of the binding force of the Constitution upon the
Sovereign, and as a coudilion of the Kingdom.
Never until the accession of His late Majesty, was
it doubted that the King who took tbe throne, took
it with and by the Constitution. By what sophistry
of argument and by what outrage to the obvious
obligation of the compact, it was theu claimed that
it was optional to the Sovereign to take or to reject
this Constitution, we all remember, as if but yester
day. But .it was even then admitted by calling a
convention of delegates of the people, that it was a
oompact of parties, not to be revoked or modified ex
cept by consent of both. How, under that admis
sion, was it defensible in one, the stronger party,
when new terms could not be made, to nunul the
compact, and afterwards give another, such as he
pleased? This act never was legally defended. It
was an net of power which might well Lave been
responded to by revolution. That it was not so
answered, does not affect the character of the act,
neither does the silent consent of a few years con
done, adopt and ratify it. The people, taking
what they could get, elected representatives who sat
and enacted Statutes under this Decree. While not
specially disturbed in their private pursuits, and
while the ordinary law was administered sb usurI,
there was a certain acquiescence, the consent under
moral duress. No oue was willing to hazard life
and fortuue in heading an attempt to regain political
rights. But such an ussent, for the brief period of
the late reign, cannot be claimed to have barred a
whole nation of rights. If in law an undisturbed
occupation of real estate for twenty years is required
to bar old rights, surely nothing less than the life
time of a whole generation will be sufficient to pre
scribe national liberties.
We take issue with the proposition that now, at
this day, the rights of the Hawaiian people are in tbe
arbitrary gift of any chief or any king. In adopting
a civilized polity in form, its principles have beeu
adopted, forever and irrevocably.
Says Vattcl ; A good prince, a wise conductor
of society, ought to have his mind impressed with
this great truth, that the sovereign power is solely
entrusted to him for the safety of tho state and the
happiness of all the people.
" The prince derives his authority from tbe nation.
He possesses just so much of it as they have thought
proper to intrust him with.
When the sovereign power is limited and regula
ted by the fundamental laws of the state, those laws
show the prince the extent and bounds of his power
and tbe manner in which he is to exert it. The
prince ia therefore strictly obliged not only to respect
but to support them."
Quotations to this effect, of acknowledged authori
ty in ail civilized governments, might be made to any
This doctrino that the king is for tho people and
not the peop'e for the king, is fully recognized in the
initial proclamation of our new sovereign. He sub
mits to them himself and bis principles, and the re
sponse is overwhelming in its loyalty to him and in
ratification of his declaration for the Constitution of
1852. We cannot believe that if he had issued a
manifesto pledging himself to maintain the Constitu
tion and reign in the spirit of the late government,
we should have witnessed this auspicious welcome.
Yet we do not desire to see this Constitution restored
by arbitrary authority. But these represent
atives now assembling, howev,- elected and how
ever sworn, are enough the rt-ojescntatives of the
people, and come here fully enough instructed to
take some speedy action, in concert with the Sover
eign, for bringing us back to legitimate ground.
Once upon that, the few needed amendments to it
can be made ; but let us not lose the vantage of
conservatism, let us start from this never abro
The Civil Code and the Penal Code, which form
the body of our statutes, were euacted under or prior
to the Constitution of 1852, and it would be far
lees disturbing now to revert to it, than to begin by
a temporary ratification of the present. Let a wise
and prudent legislature at once consider how they
niny lest accomplish the wishes of the Sovereign, aud
of the whok; people.
Mr. Eiitor The able article cf the Gazelle upon
" Constitutional Government " points out very
clearly, and in my view correctly the proper courte
to be pursued in the present crisis of afl tirs; every
thing can be gained by this course that can be rea
aonably u.vked for or expected. The whole judicial,
legislative and executive departments ef government
as now existing derive their functions frorn the
preseut Constitution, and the Legislature was called
in conformity with it, and iu accordance with its
provisions are about to elect a King. If the promises
of the Prince in case of his election could not be ful
filled except by his ignoring the form of Uw under
which he is elected, then a direct restoration of the
Constitution of 1S-j2 by decree might be justifiable
but this would be revolution, and what possible excuse
is there for revolutionary measures aud possible dis
order now. The King when legally elected can call
a special meeting of the Legislature forthwith for the
purpose of legislative amendment and the Legislature
so called can appoint a committee of revision to
report to the next Legislature to be chosen, and give
the committee such general instructions as it shall
deern wise. Such a comnrttec, without instruction,
would be likely to incorporate all the liberal provis
ions of the Constitution of 1852, for this has been
one of the important issues upon w hich the King was
to be chosen, the other being as to Lis right to the
Throne. But further amendments an needed which
are not in the Constitution of 18o2. Every depart
ment cf the government enn be so reconstructed as
greatly to diminish its expense without impairing its
efficiency or dignity, and it needs to be done.
The nation is small in number with little wealth
comparatively, the whole being less than that of
many single individuals in the United State and
Europe, and a wise and economical use of its revenue
with as light a taxation as pissible will tend to its
perpetuity as a sovereigu power.
Some of the points of amendment required to this
end iu my opinion are: 1st The King's salary
shoull be dimii.ishrd to nt to rawed il'2,(sijr
annum, thit in tny view tiring atnplo to maintain all
the Stale requisite for this little Kinylom. Tti
grnnt to Kaoiohameha III. ciiUjh bcmI with 8Wor

bad reached $r l2.t. This for this -oor and small
people i enough if economically used, as lb N-t
good i f the nation certainly require that it should be.
2nd The ministerial oloi nhou! I But be mbro
than two, a number quit equal to the llr auJ re
.onnb;i.tio. They Itave been nominally kept al
four because the Constitution called for tt, thou; hi
actually otic miuiater ha not nnfrvqueiitly had tkff
ovrrriht of two. 1 am not lone in my opinion h
two meu coulJ t-vcrtMe the four Uiinislrriid dpr1

two vpecial counselor might te appointed to bo
called upon in pecial caaea of importance, with a
reasouaUU per diem allowance for lime actually
devoted to coosultatkm. Tbe Privy Council as-Tving
without compensation, cannot be eipectcd lo devot
very much t'uie to government matters.
3rd The legislators should have a per diem stlow
auce, tbe pension; uot to exceed a CicM nuiuWr of
day, or if they abould excevd tbe nataber, the pay
to cease; a it i in New York. Neither tny time, or
your sheet, will allow tne to prolong this letter, but
these are only a few of the things In which the
organic law need amendment, aud which are not
provided for in either Constitution.
There should" tie some limit by law to tiprnae of
various kinds, as military, printing, &., which nee-1
careful thought of wise and competent men to con
tidcr, aud which cannot be touched upon here. But
the fact that if even tbe revolutionary carMof pro.
claiming the Constitution of 1862 is adopted, that
Constitution will still require amendment, at least iu
the opinion of many whose opinions art worthy of
consideration, forms an additional reason for taking
the lawful and temperate courno marked out la the
Uasttte, and which will accomplish, the same end in
a more unobjectionable way. At least, I hope that
the King will ak the advice of the Supreme Court
before be commits himself to tbe course indicated la
your patier of Saturday last, because, to many that
course does not seem necessary to accomplish the rnJ
desired by the uioatt liberal.
I write now, because it is a time when amend
ments, and it is to be hoped improvements still t-e
introduced iuto tho organic Uw, aud I hope that
those having the matter in charge ruay be practical
men, who will not think that the changes suggr-Mted
are not practical. They are, and may be made If
those in power, and holding influential porntioiis,
will set themselves to inquire what can be done lo
economize the income without diminishing the effi
ciency or dignity of the state; as well es necuring
tho least taxation with the greatest profperlty. The
sum named for the salary of the King ia certainly
ample for all that can be required to support the
state of the King of these Islands; but bcrudca this,
the coming King is in receipt of a haudsvme Inoouie
from his own private fortune. And certainly no
measure could lie more popular with his people than
to favor a reduction of his own salary,
In proposiug a reduction of tbe number of Minis
ters, I do not think that tbe work to be done can bo
s great, or perplexing or wearing, ns it was during
its organic stages, when everything was in a forma
tive process, and when tho Government was more or
less harrassed from without and within. Its members
were few in number, with hard work and little salary.
Mr. Richards, from 1&18 lo 1812, stood alone and
laid the foundation of the sujierstructurc, however
defective It may have been. He Worked too bard,'
and his salary then wns VCOO. In 1K42 he was
joined by Dr. Judd, and leaving immediately for
Europe, be was left alone till 1811, when Mr. Itioord
was added to tho working number. Iu 1845, Mr.
Wjllie took the portfolio of Foreign Affair, aud to
this period the salaries had only reached 31,5(X), and
this was the compensation first received by Chief
Justice Lee. For years, $8,000 became the measure
of compensation for Ministerial service; with an
advance in tho ease of the Chancellor to 84,000,
proposed by Mr. Wyllio to make St correspond to the ,
same office and dignity as lu England, after which
form of government the Hawaiian wns patterned.
Ultimately the ministerial and Chancellor's salaries
reached 5,000, where they cow stand. This I do
not propose to reduce, and it surely will command
tbe services of men able and competent to oversee
and conduct the affairs of any two of the ministerial
departments with certainly less labor and more py
than fell to the lot of the organizers of the govern
ment. I should not fear that even $4,000 would
command tho requisite service.
The judiciary department could be re-organizod, I
think, in the interests of economy, without diminish
ing its dignity or efficiency. I spoke of the legislative,
military and printing departments. Other changes
suggested by past experience might per hup be rnado
with benefit, which would not bo Constitutional by
either of the instruments named, without amendment.
It may be thought that these changes are sweeping,
visionary and impracticable. I believe they are
neither, and although my own views might bo modi
fied by discussion as to details, yet to make essential
changes for the better in the matters named, I think
quite practicable ; and if there is ihe will I believe
they will now be accomplished, or I should not bo
A CINCINNATI C1.EK0YMAN' EXI LAIN8 IT ALL AWAY.
Tho Reverend J. P. Stuar, of Cincinnati,
preached a sermon on tbe Deluge, lost wreck, in
which ho took tho ground that tho liiblo ncoount
is not to bo understood as meaning a literal del ugo
of water. There was no such thing. W quoto
frorn the report of his Hermon:
In respect to Noah's Flood," its it is called,
tlio npjmlling outbreak of wickedness tho dclugo
of evils nnd falsities was, after all, tho principal
thing. For what was tho ruin of forty days, and
the breaking loose of whatever pent-up roscrvoini
of water tltero wero, to tho fact that (od saw
the wickedness of man was grcnt in thecurth and
that every imagination of tho thoughts of bis
heart waa only evil continually, and it repented
the Lord that ho had rnado man on tho earth, aud
it grieved Ilim at His heart."
But why not believo tho etory in its literal
sense? IV by not believe that a universal dclugo
actually occurred, and that Noah nnd bis family
and the animals were preserved in tho ark? Wo
answer becuuso wo cannot believe theso things,
for they arc at war with nafTire and at war witfi
science; and consequently scientists cannot be
lieve the Htory until they Jmvo so modified it that
it is virtually abolished.
Mr. Stuart explained the difficulties involved in
the account, showing that theologians bavcyieldcd
to the pressure of these difficulties, nnd that they
now universally concur in the opinion that if tlicro
was any deluge whatever it was limited in extent
and not dangerously deep ! Wo can only catalogue
tho points that wero elaborated in the lecture.

2. The rain of forty days would only raise tho
waters a few inches. Indeed, rain is only the de
scent of water which bad previously ascended by
evaporation. ILain, consequently, could never
