II:s F-X. the Attorney General tben tulle the fvl-
lowing apology c a behalf of the Ministers :
The Attorney Genera! s vid that a there w.vs ncth- j
ins occupying the attention cf th llouie. he wlshel i
to avail hiaisvlf cf the opportunity to make some rc- j
marks in regard to the disgraceful riv t cf the 12:U iefct. '
Undoutteily his colleagues and himself would be j
blamed for not having foreseen that deeds cf violence j
would be committed, and fur net having proTiJed i
that an armed force te present to prevent their oo-
enrrence during the election cf a King. This hal
I been aoggested and discussed. The Cabinet thought
i that, as some cf their number had resided here fcr !
25 or SO years, and cne (the speaker) had been born ;
here, they were acquainted with the Hawaiian race
and that they were safe in trusting the people. The
behavior cf the people during the interregnum pre- :
ceding the election cf His late Majesty Lcnalilo. 1
and during other crises through which the people ha J j
passed, had led the Cabinet to believe that though j
there would be great excitement and loud words on I
the occasion, yet that would be all. That it was bet- j
ter to trust in the law abiding character which this
people had acquired during long years, than to have !
the presence of an armed force durinjr the election.
A display of soldiery would be readily misconstrued j
to be either an attempt at coercion, cr an appearance i
of fear when none really existed. In this view, how- j
ever, tne cabinet were mistaken, as tne murderous
assaults on the Hon. Representatives, and the mali
cious destruction of property prove!. A force of forty
policemen had been provided, also a Committee of
one hundred and seven of our best llawaiians had
been enrolled who agreed to remain among the crowd
and preserve order. This was deemed by all who
knew of the arrangement to be amply sufficient All
present know of how little avail their efforts were.
The Hon. Mr. Kaukaha replied as follows :
The Hon. Mr. Kaukaha (the Representative from
Hanalei, whose arm was in a sling) said he regretted
exceedingly that the Attorney General had seen fit,
on behalf of the Cabinet, to allude to this unpleas
ant subject, or to attempt to excuse or explain the
unfortunate and disgraceful occurrences of Thursday
last. Had the Ministry said nothing about it in the
Assembly, he and his brother Representatives would
have themselves kept silence; but since the Ministers
attempted to excuse themselves for their want of
precaution, he must speak. It was remarked
that the Ministers, from their experience of
our people, had felt that there was no danger of vio
lence or lawlessness. This feeling of security was
not warranted from the history of the recent past.
When last year the Assembly met for the election of
a King, it was notorious that the crowd which then
surrounded the Court House were prepared for deeds
of violence if their favorite was not clecUsi. This
was a fact known all over the Islands. The Minis
ters knew the state of feeling among a largo portion
of the people of this city immediately preceding
Thursday last, and ought to have been prepared for
trouble. There was the affair of the Barracks, last
September did they learn nothing from the fact that 1
the soldiers in mutiny were b&ckea up ty the pop
ulace at that time ? But on Thursday last, after the
Committee of the House had been assaulted and
divcn back, some of the members had then appealed
to the Ministers to send for assistance from the men
of war, but they did not act promptly, nor until blood
had been shed, and the house was in possession cf the!
rioters. The wounds that the -Representatives from
the other islands had received, he considered, were
owing entirely to the neglect of the Ministry
and ho repeated that he was sorry that they had
themselves introduced the subject.
Hon. Mr. Kaukaha then offered the following :
Resolved, That the Ministers are hereby author
ized and directed to provide medical attendance from
the foreign and native physicians of this city, and
also nurses, for the members of this House who have
suffered injury; and to pay for the same out of the
public treasury; and that the Minister of Finance
render an account of such expenditure at the next
session of the Legislative Assembly.
The House then adjourned to 10 minutes before 12
At twelve o'clock His Majesty, accompanied by
his Aids, left the Palace, under salufes from Tunch
bowl battery, II. B. M. S. Tenedos, and the U. S. S.
Tuscarora, and was escorted by the Hawaiian
Cavalry. On the arrival of His Majesty at the Court
House the foreign troops and tha Honolulu Rifles were
drawn up in front of the building and deceived the
King with the usual honors. He rodo down in the

Nobles and Representatives :
The vacancy of the Throne of Our Kingdom by
the demise, on the 3d instant, of Our much la
mented Predecessor, made it necessary for you to
meet in extraordinary session.
There has been no unnecessary delay either in
your coining together or in the discharge of the
important duty imposed upon you by the Consti
tution. f By your free choice I am now King, and 1 hope,
with your aid and that of nil my faithful subjects,
to mako'My Reign a blessing to my people.
The present session having been called for a
special purpose, which has been accomplished, I
have no other business to lay before you now, but
the regular biennial session will be convened in
April next, as required by the Constitution, at
which time all matters pertaining to the welfare
of Our Kingdom may be considered.
Nobles and Representatives : I desire again
to thank you for your partiality andf kindness to
wards Myself; and I pray the Almighty that He
will continue to protect and prosper Our King

Action of the Consular Corps.
At a meeting of the Consular Corps, held on
Saturday Ia6t, at the office of 5Ir. Schaefer, the
following resolution was unanimously adopted
upon the suggestion of one of the members :
Resolved, That the senior of the Consular Body,
Mr. Heuck. accompanied by Mons. Ballieu, who
joins to his functions of Commissioner those of
Consul for France, call upon the Representatives
of the United States and Great Britain, and convey
to them the sincere thanks of the foreign Consuls
for the promptness and impartiality with which
they, through their ships of war in port, assisted
the local authorities in putting an end to the dis
turbance of last Thursday, without in any way
interfering with Hawaiian politics. By so doing
not only lives and property of American and Brit
ish subjects together with Hawaiian was saved,
but such protection was likewise given to the sub
jects ol all other nations represented here by the
members of the Consular Corps, and gratefully ac
knowledging this fact, the fairness aud readiness
Of those who extended such protection is highly
commendable. The gallant and moderate conduct

The Committee immediately called upon Mr.

going message, whereupon both these gentlemen
expressed their fullest appreciation of this act on
the part of the Consular Corp-e, renewing the as
surance that at all times the interests of the sub

kingdom would be gladly and readily guarded by

By a comparison of the above with the record of
Capt. Daniel Smith for the same period, kept at Wai
kiki, it will appear that the difference Is not so great
as- had been supposed.
Americanized Hawaiian. There are some dozen
or more llawaiians who are regularly shipped on
board the U. S. S. Portsmouth some of them were
in the ranks last week when the forces were landed
from the ships, and it was amusing to notice the
glances of contempt they bestowed upon tho mob.
But still more amusing it is to note the air of inde
pendence with which these Americanized llawaiians
walk into a liquor shop and fling down their quarters
for a " square drink." They are Yankee tars, d'ye
see, not like poor common kanakas to be refused.
Not Fair. In the Advertiser office, six of the
printers are members of the Rifle Company. Five of
them were notified personally by the Captain at half
past 4 on the 12th to appear at the Armory, and
one, who was at work on the upper floor, received no
notification. Of the five who got notice, none went
through a misunderstanding of office regulations.
Three of the five were reported as having " refused
duty," as was the one who got no notice, and two
were omitted from the list of recusants, although
they stayed away like the other four.
The Police. We have heard it suggested that all
the native police who were on duty on the 12th
should be discharged. The question is pertinently
askcl, would we gain anything by exchanging them
for new ones? It appears to us that during the
riot, the native police were more frightened than in
fluenced by any sentiment of political preference, for
during the investigation that has been going on in
regard to the riot, none of the prisoners or the wit
nesses have in any way implicated the police. At 3
o'clock on the morning of the 13th, the whole force
reported ready fur duty, and have since been prompt
and zealous, as the large number of arrests made by
them will show. '
The Investigation. Every day this week since
Tuesday, the examination of the men arrested for
taking part in the late riot has been going on before
the Police Magistrate, holding Court for the prceent
in the upper rooms of the Station House. Up to
yesterday evening 74 of the rioters have been ex
amined, of whom 55 have been committed for trial
at the April term of the Supreme Court, seven have
been remanded for a further hearing, andfourtecn
discharged for want of evidence of their complicity.
A few of those committed have been released on bail,
but a large addition has been made to ihe population
of the prison, the locking ontfor which is a duty
not calculated to deepeu the slumbers of the jailor
seeing that the guard of marines placed there on the
night of the 12th inst., has been removed.
The Honolulu RYfles. This company of volun
teer soldiery was disbanded by the order of the Gov
ernor of Oahu, on Thursday last. Whatever other
circumstances may have resulted in producing this
action on the part of the authorities, it is only fair
to the individual members of the Rifles to correct
the impression that prevails that they refused to
serve in suppressing the riot cf the 12th intt. The
Gazette says that " Capt. Gulick reported ten or
twelve responses to his order, only six of whom were
willing to serve." This statement Copt. Gulick has
denied in the presence of his company. The truth
is that no written requisition was ruado upon the
members to turn out, (as required by their Constitu
tion) but only a verbal one, and that was ma Jo
upon some individuals by the Captain, and upon
some by two privates, in a very informal way, after
the foreign forces had landed. We repeat, that
whatever may be the real or fancied cause for dis
banding the RiMes, it is not true that as a company
they refused to serve in suppressing the riot.
