SiicnE or a Native. By letttrs from Kohala to
the 12th inatant, we learn that a lew days before that
date, an old native, supposed to have been insane,
committed suicide. He was founi tied by the waist
to a post in his house, with his throat cut from ear
to ear. We have not heard any particulars, but the
tying up previous to the cutting, might point to as
sistance. Gf Some of the Honorable members who spoke so
slightingly of " foreigners " vdiile discussing the
respectful petition yesterday froa foreign merchants
and others, asking for a hearing on the labor ques
tionmight have been judiciouily reminded of thtj
fact, that but for the timely interposition of foreign
bayonets last February, they themselves would have
not survived to air their eloquence to-day.
Di3Tisc.ti.sHKD Visitoks. Sir William Martin,
late Chief Justice of New Zealand, Lady Martin,
and the Rev. Dr. Lang of Sydney, N. S. Y, en
route for Europe, paid a visit to the Legislative
Assembly on Monday, and remained an hour,
listening with much interest to the debates. Sir
Will him expressed himself much pleased with the
order and decorum and the business-like style of
our Hawaiian Legislators.
Retces of tue Moknino Star. This Missionary
packet returned to port yesterday morning, after an
abaenco cf a little over eleven months on a cruse
among the islands of Micronesia. A fall report from
Captain Hallett will be found in our Commercial col
umn. We learn that the Missionaries were well and
prospering in their work. Five new stations were
established among the islands to the westward, where
the nativea gladly received the teachers. The brig
will return to Micronesia, probably In July. A
reinforcement for the mission is expected soon from
the United States.
The Sago Plant. A friend corrects our state
ment of last week about a sago palm. The plant
or phrub in question does not belong to the family
f palms, but would seem to be more allied to
that of pines. The botanical name is the cycas
revoluta, a wheel-shaped shrub, which yields the
sago of Japan and China. The sago tree of the
East Indian Archipelago (sajns farinifera) bears
very abundantly, ana furnishes the inhabitants
with a large proportion of their subsistence. 'Ihe
plant in Mr. Cleghorn's premises has not yet
flowered what was supposed to be a flower being
only a cluster of new leaves.
A si J vrEJJESTiNO Lainch. In the New Zealand
. i - .
Auckland, March 21bt, of a now missionary vussel,
built at that place, for the Melanesian Mission.
The new craft, to be known as Tlie Southern Cross,
is 220 tons burthen builder's measurement, and is
Otted with engines of 20 horse-power. The launch
took place in the presence of Bishop Cowie, the
clergy, Government officials, and a large concourse
of ppectators. Lady Martin, wife of the late Chief
Justice, named the vessel just as she started on the
ways, not in the old-time fashion of breaking
bottle cf wine oil the bow bat by marking with
chalk a cross on the stem, with tliB worcis, "I
name thee the Southern Cross, and may thy mis
sion be to carry the message of the cross amongst
the islands of tho sea.' The idea of a new vessel
for the missionary service, with auxiliary steam,
originated with the late lamented Bishop Patteson.

Ninth Day, May 9th.
Hon. Mr. Lane rose to a question of privilege.
The Advertiser of to-day in its report of proceed
ing', states that he (Mr. L.) seconded the motion to
Iiy a petition on the table, praying that the sale of
intoxicating dri..ks be forbidden. He would not
have introduced such a petition hisolf, but he did
not second the motion to table.

From Honolulu, that Dr. McKibbin be discharged

100 signatures because he makes some of the pa
tients work on the premises.
Hon. Mr. Koakanu offered a resolution to expel
the reporters of newspapers from the Hall, because
tj.ey l;d not correctly report the proceedings of
On a motion to postpone indefinitely by Hon.
Mr. Kakani. the Hon. Mr. Koakanu said that his
experience in past sessions was that he bad been
badly abused by the newspapers. If we don't
expel these men, then let them be instructed by the
President to report the truth. Look at the report
in the Gazette about the petition from Kaanapali,
which J.'J fiof ask that all foreigners be sent out of
the country. That statement, coing back to the
constituents of the member, will be liable to injure
h i ni .
His Ex. the Attorney General said that he did
not care to go into a controversy with the editor
of the Hiizette. who had incorrectly reported his
remarks on the- tivo House question, but he be
lieved that if the newspaper men would take care
and get, t"inga reported riht, it would be better
for the new.-papers.
Hon. Mr. Kaai thought the false statement about
a petition asking that all foreigners be sent out cf
the country, was an injurious one, and that the
newspaper which published it should be made to

The bill to fix the hours to constitute a day's j
work, came up on its second reading (nine honrs,
unless otherwise stipulated by contract). Con- i
sidered in Committee ot the whole, Hon. Mr. Ko- j
ruoikeehuehu it the Chair. '
Hon. Mr. Kaai said this bill was in the interests !
of the laboring classes, and he favore! Its passage.
At present, in some cases, laborer-- Leld under con-
tracts were worKcu more nours a tjay than was
i just or reasonable. It was necessary to fir a limit
beyond which masters could not keep their men at
Hon. Mr. Kaukaha opposed tho bill. It would
not be for the interests of the laboring classes. If
we limit by law the hours of labor, the masters
will get even. they will make the men work
harder, and besides" the wages will be reduced.
The sugar interest in this country is the paramount
one. and we must be careful how we hastily passed
laws that would hamper that interest
Hon. Mr. Kahai said that the severity of the
rules of labor and the length of hours, ou planta
tions, was the cause why it was so difficult to get
men to engage. Honolulu is to-day lull of this
class of men. but they won't go on the plantations.
He favored the bill.
Hon. Mr. Napaepao said that the labor system as
carried on at Lahaiua was very oppressive. The
men were worked like animals, without mercy,
from daylight till dark. He therefore favored the
passage of this bill.
His Ex. the Minister of the Interior said the best
plau was to leave it to masters and servants to Ox.
in the contract, the hours of labor. His experience
however was that when men were worked over the
proper aud usual time of nine hours, they were

ORDER OF THE DAY.
The bill to establish the number of hours to con
stitute a day's work, was taken up in Committee of
the whole, the Hon. Mr. Ahole in the Chair.
Hon. Mr. Kipi moved the indefinite postponement
of this bill. Its effect would bo to reduce wages.
Hon. Mr. Napaepae repeated what he had pre?
viously said about labor on plantations in Lahaina.
He was strongly in favor of passing the bill.
Hon. Mr. Kaai supported the bill in a speech of
His. Ex. Nahaolelua was in favor of the bill, as
was the Hon Mr. Haupq.
Hon. Mr. Wilder said that the friends of the bill
had not fairly stated the case, as to the manner of
carrying on work on plantations. When men are
turned out to work at 3 o'clock in tho morning, they
work ten houra and that only, except they are paid i
for extra time. Some years ago, ten hours were j
fixed by the Board of Immigration as a day's work, i
and that has become a rule with about all the planta- '
tions. Extra work is paid for in cash on Saturday
night. The bill however will result in nothing, for j
the number cf Lours can be fixed in the contract, j
He reminded members that all the prosperity of the I
country depends on the sugar growing business, and j
that business is not over prosperous now. Place a
few impediments in its way, and you will sink tb,c j
lion. Mr. Iscnterg said Lc had had ten years experi- !
once in sugar planting. Ten hours was the rule, i
but the men were often worked much over ten hours, j
for which however they always got pay. Laborers ;
wre scarce now and independent, if they are hardly j
worked they will leave. BesiJes, the Courts are al-
fays open to the laburer, if he is ill-used. !
His Ex. the Minister of the Interior thought that
the labor system as to wages and time, would regu- I
late itself best without legislative interference. The j
custom at present, which was much the same as law, ;
calls for ten hours labor. j
Hon. Mr. Aholo sai l that Le should be glad if the !
laborers in the district of Lahaina were treated as '
has been stated 'mother districts. Then there would
le np use to pass this law. But there was need of j
this law in his district, nnd Le doubted not that it
pas the same in some other districts.
Hon. Mr. Kakani opposed the bill.
Hon. Mr. Kaukaha said that it appeared there
was uo complaint as to the hours cf labor from any
pirt of the kingdom except Lahaina. Tnere are 2o
plantations in other places, anl two on'y in Lahaina.
Shall we make a law that may interfere seriously i
with the labor system all over the country, simply to '
please the fancy cf some people of Lahaina? Better !
nake the law apply to Lahaina alone.
His. Ex. the Attorney General did not favor the j
till. He did not believe it would be for the real
benefit of the laborer. An intelligent employer j
ouli know how to get the better c.f this law. The 1
less laws made on the subject tiia better. He did not
think it would work well fur either side, fur the law ;
to ttep in between employer an 1 employee, and say j
hat their contracts shall be. Better leave it for the I
Courts to say when an employer is harsh or unjust, !
and to annul the contract. I
Hon. Mr. Nawahi made a vigorous speech in favor
cf the bill. V ithout coming to a vote the Commit
The bill to regulate the slaughter of sheep and !
goats for their skins, was rea l a second time. (Pro- I

ORDER or THE 1A.
The Nine Hours Bill was taken up in Committee
of the whole.
Hon. Mr. Kipi moved to amend by inserting ten,
instead of nine, with one hour for rest at noon.
His Ex. the Minister of Foreign Editions sai l this
was a serious and diRijult subject for legislation. Ik
had uo interest in any suttar plantation, beyond that
which every man has iu the prosperity of the country
at large. Nine hours steady work in his opinion w as j
I enough for any man; that was what was agreed to
between employer and employee iu the Honolulu Iron
ANorks. Bat it is impossible to expect the same stead
iness or amount of work from hands in the field. The
matter of terms ought to be settled, lo t by law, but
between the men and the employers. Mr. Green
gave an instance in which the ship-building business
was driven away from the Thames owing to the com
bination of the workmen against the employers. We
must take care that the same result does not follow
here. The Fiji Islands are naturally capable of pro
ducing sugar quite as well as we. If we place diffi
culties in the way of agricultute, we may crush the
planters so that we shail lose the sugar business also,
lie strongly recommended this House to let this sub
ject alone. He would add, in other countries the la
bor laws apply to factories and large manufacturing
establishments, and not agricultural pursuits.
Hon. Mr. Kaukaha said that if we pass this law,
the next Legislature will be :t-ked to buy watches
for the field-hands, in older ili.it (hoy may keep iho
run of their time. In fact, this thing of just so
many hours of time, will be a lrititlu! nnd danger
ous matter of dispute between the men and the
overseers. If we undertake to tie up tho employ
ers with this sort of laws, the laborers will be llie
ones to sn!rer.
Hon. Mr. Kuikahi supported the bill.
Hon. Mr. Bishop naid there wus no question but
that everybody was interested in seeing the cugur
interest prosper, for it w as the one Inipo. taut inter
est of the country, w hich supports the government
and the people. And if this House does anything
that will embarrass the planters, it will strike a
blow at everybody's interest and welfare, through
out the country. Therefoie, this subject of labor
should be considered carefully. 1 ho burdens of
the sugar planters at this time" an? gn at, and they
are many of them in a struggle for existence.
This bill under discussion, would in his opinion,
be productive of uo good, but on Hie contrary il
would result in diflicHllies and damage iu tho
agricultural districts. He di precated the idea
that had been put forth here, that some metnbeiH
were to defend the interests oj employers while
others would defend tho-e of ll.e employees. Ik
hoped, t'iat as all tho members were here under
the iiaiiio obligations-, they would alike seek the
good and the advancement of the interests of all
classes and of all sections of the coiintiy. It
would be belter, he thought for both the employed
and the employer, to let this mutter ot the. hours
ot labor remain just ns it i-:. without iulei ferenca

Hon. Mr. Kaai read first time a till to amend Sec
tion 42 of the Civil Code. (Provides that pieces of
Government land in Honolulu, cannot be sol 1 with
out the cciiocnt of the Lcgislatuie.)
Hon. Mr. Wilder offered a Resolution instructing
the Committee on Printing to cause to be printed
such bills coming before the House as in their opin
ion are of importance to be carefully considered. He
explained that the public had expressed a desire to
know what bills were brought forward, and he him
self was at a less to understand some bills that Lad
come up, which would not be the case if they Lad
been printed fir information.
Hon. Mr. Kaai opposed the rsantution. We arc for
economy. The ''public' tpoken of were the public
of Honolulu, which comprised only a few, not by any
K.caL3 all the constituents. This House was itself
pnly coucerned as to what was done in this House,
and it was no concern of those outside the Houee.
Let the ILoncJulu public got their information about
bills from the newspapers, who publish reports of the
proceedings. The resolution was indefinitely pott
ponel. His Ex- tho Attorney General offered big Rule cf

Kuihelani in the Ch.'ur. (It-peals the provision that

Board of Health availed themselves of the provision
in question, and used the property of lepers to pay
their own expenses, and in those instances the amount
Lad been repaid. Passed to be engrossed.
The bill to furbil the manufacture and peddling of
bread and cakes, was rea l a second time, and after
