enthusiastic Hawaiians cheered lustily fxr tbe Prince.
Long before the hour for tbe opening of tbe House,
the population cf the town began to move down to

o'clock there was a dense crowd in front and around
the approaches to tbe building, while up the stairs
the lobby was jammed full of anxious (spectators by
' eleven o'clock.
On the arrival of tie Prince, at 5 minutes before
I 12, the immense crowd outside tbe buildine snt up
lon;r and loud cheers, that spoke their loyal aspira

i ed at loluni Palace, in Honolulu, in the Island of
j Ouhu, upon the lorty-seeond anniversary of bis
birth, being the eleventh day of December, in the
j year of Our Lord One Thousand Eight Huudred
; and Seventy-two.
illis late Majesty left no heirs.
Her late Koyal Highness, the Princess Victoria
Kauiumalu Kuahumauu, to wuoui in tbe event of
j the death of His late Majesty without heirs, the
I Constitution declared that tbe Throne should de
! suend, died, also without beits, on the twenty-
ninth day ot May, in the year of Our Lord One
j Thousand Eight Hundred and Sixty-six.
j His late Majesty did not appoint any successor
in the mode set forth in the Constitution, with tbe
consent of the Nobles, or make pioclamation
thereof during his lite, inere baving been no
6iich appointment or proclamation, the throne
became vacant, and the Cabinet Council immedi
ately thereupon considered the form of the Con
sit ution in such case made and provided, and
Ordered, That a meetiug ol tbe Legislative As
sembly be caused to be bolden at the Court House
in Honolulu, on Wednesday, which will be tbe
eighth day of January, A. D. 1873. at 12 o'clock

1 lutive Assembly will take notice und govern them-
1 selves accordingly.
By virtue of this order you have been assembled,
j to elect, by ballot, some native Alii of this King
: dotu us successor to the throne. Your present
authority is limited to this duty, but the newly
elected Sovereigu may require your services alter

J blessings of Heaven upon your deliberations and
public acts. They have appreciated the responsi
bility resting upon tbem. and have striven tomain
! tain tranquility and order, and, especially, to guard
j your proceedings against improper interference.
Acknowledging the obligation to preserve all the
rights, honors and dignities appertaining to the
throne, and to transmit them unimpaired to a new
j Sovereign, it w ill become their duty, upon his ac
I cession, to surrender to him the authority conferred
upon tbem by his late lamented predecessor. I

On motion tbe House then proceeded to take up
the main business of the session, the election of a
successor to the Throne bj ballot
Each member upon taking bis Boat found the
following circular upon his desk, accompanied
with a neat ballot for the Prince :
SOBLES AND REPRESENTATIVES :
The voice of the People has instructed you to vote
for the King they have chosen ! More than ten
thousand Hawaiians on the first of January said that
Prince Lunalilo should be that King. Now the
People bear that you have been asked to tell your
i vote, to drown tbeir voices, chow them to-uay tnat
i you are true ! Make Prince Lvsaulo our King
Let every member write bis name on bis ballot,
so that we may know that you are not traitors to the
People who ask thatLcsAULO should be their King
Honolulu. Jan. 8, 1S73.
Hon. Mr. Kaai introduced a resolution to the effect
that each member write his name on the back of his
ballet. After some debate the resolution was adopted
and the members proceeded to ballot. All of the
members present, as well as the Cabinet, voted.
AVbile the tellers were callitg the ballots and reading
the names of the members cn the backs, the greatest
interest was evident in the audience. The people
outside got the news as soon as a majority was reached
and the cheering wa3 tremendous. At half-past one
tne vote was declared
for Trince William C. Lunalilo. The news was
received with enthusiastic cheering, and shouts of
applause. A Committee of five, consisting of Uia

Double Dealing on Kauai.
Pbixceville, Dec. 28, 1872.
To the Eilltor of Ute Pacijic Commercial Advertiser:
Dear Sir I deem it proper to inform you that
certain native flicials here in combination with
certain ex-officials, knowiug tbe unanimous wish of
the people of this district in lavor of William 0.
Lunalilo, have attempted and as they now believe
intend to show on getting to Honolulu that their
district is in favor of another candidate; and of
course expect further favors if their party succeeds.
A forced election was gotten up at Hanalei 011 Wed
nesday in favor of D. Kalakaua, and the whole affair
kept secret from those who were known to be opposed
to him a few days before this agents went around
with papers and natives urged to sign them; that
it would be all right if they did, aud at the place of
election large lists were exhibited with the same
names repeated and also women's names from this
Rev. C. II. Spurgeon, in one of bis latest sermons
I at the Metropolitan Tabernacle, has given the Ritu-
anst'5 a severe custigation.
It is miserably amusing," be said, to mark
the way in which our so-called national church tries
to win men to God. It has recently been stated that
in seven of tbe leading Ritualistic churches iu Lon
don the subscriptions to Foreigu Missions only reach-
i ed the sum of 7 13. '2d. for a whole year. It is
j fair to add that one of them contributed 5 12. lOd.
to a special fund for Honolulu, but even with this
extra etlort the total is not raised to 14, and the
average is not z apiece, lbcse seven hnely apos
tolic churches contributed between them 13 7s. for
Foreigu Missious, and yet the incumbent of one of
them, before the Ritual Commission, stated in his
evidence that the cost of his choir alone was ' about
1,000 a year.' O model church, with what wisdom
hast thou acted ! Behold, thou givest 2 for the
salvation of the heathen, and 1,000 for a box of
whistles and a set of singing men and singing wo
men to make music withal. Verily, this is a plain
index of the whole business. . Theirs is a religion of
sensuous gratification, and not of soul winning. To
charm ears with music, eyes with dainty colors, and
iiotej with incense this is their religion. Men pay
money for these delights, even as they would to the
opera, or any other amusement in which their tastes
find pleasure ; but for ttm winning of souls abroad
a few halfpence may suffice to show tbe lack of
zi-al. Dear friends, we know that souls are nut to
be won by music. If tbe world were indeed to be
conquered by chants, to be converted by sancttises,
regenerated by organs, and saved by little boys in
Biirplices, then it would be time for us to cease our
ministry and give place to choir boys, opera sing
ers, organists aud organ blowers. Then might we
set up a vast array ot pipes, lift up the crucifix,
wave the censer, and cry, These be thy gods, O
The Australian Gum Tree. The fourth an
nual report of the California Pharmaceutical So
ciety, just published, devotes much attention to
the remedial powers of the Australian gum tree,
Eucalyptus Globulus,) the general introduction
of which in that State has lately been urged by
medical and scientific gentlemen, in view of its
medicinal virtues, ornamental appearance, and
utility in the arts. This tree, a native of .Aus
tralia, is already introduced in various European
countries. It belongs to the order of Jlyrtacae,
the same that furnishes the clove and pimento
berry, also the Melaleuca Minore, which yields
cajeput oil, and grows often to gigantic t-ize. It
is impregnate in all portions with a peculiar aro
matic substance, most abundant in the leaves and
flowers, which yield by distillation about four
per cent, of fragrant volatile oil. Many of the
trees have already been planted in San Francisco,,
and a Gne specimen is growing in the garden of
the French Hospital. It is believed that the oil
will be an efl'ective remedy against malarious dis
eases of all types, and that the presence of the
trees, cultivated in gardens will contribute to
sanify tbe atmosphere from those emanations
which give origin to epidemic diseases. That the
parasitic insects which infest other plants do not
relish the Eucalyptus is evident from the general
cleanness of the leaves and the fact that the hy
drocarbon oils are fatal to animal life. Tne
balmy perfume, therefore, that exhales from them
must have an influence in destroying the para
Bites which frequent shrubs growing in their
vicinity, tending to diminish if not suppress
