LtisE of Government Land. On Mav Cth the
three lots, before advertised, on the corner of Nuu
aou and Queen streets, opposite Nolte's coffee shop,
were put up for lease at auction by Mr. Bartow.
The term was five years, and the immediate corner
lot was leased for 11 per month by Capt. Howland,
while the other two were leased to Mr. H Crabbe
at 13 and 16 per month respectively.

Official Rcbeness. The Gasttte of Wednesday
speaks (if truly, which we rather doubt) of a very
rude reception given by one of our government offi
cials to " a titled officer in the service of a foreign
government." We think the public should know
the name of the barbarian referred to, but we cannot
endorse the assertion that such conduct is " char
acteristic " of our government officials. Few charges
of this sort have ever been preferred against them,
and we would prefer to say that urbanity, and not
swinishness, is "characteristic" of our officials.

Mr. Editor : There baa been considerable dis
cussion in the Legislative Assembly upon tbe consti
tutional rigbt or tbe ministers to vot upon questions
coming before tbe House.
Tbe advocates of this right rely upon the latter
clause of tbe 43d article of the constitution as clear,
ly conveying tbia right as well as others pertaining
to tbe legislative rights and duties of the nobles.
This clause of tbe 43d article reads as follows :
Tbe ministry bold seats ex officio aa nobles in
the Legislative Assembly."
Tbe plain meaning of this clause is that they are
clothed with all tbe legislative rights of tbe nobles
none are excepted. If so it would have been ex
pressly stated. When we see it stated that the Brit
ish ministry are required to have seats in ibe par.
liament in tbe one or tbe other bouse, tbe word seats
in both cases means tbe same, aud conveys the same
idea of the rights which tbe parties alluded to
v e nave no more reason to exclude them from
voting than from talking, and their rights are in no
way made dependent on the number or nobles. The
rights of tbe ministry remain tbe same in tbe House
Whether the nobles number one or twenty. But be
sides the plain meaning of the language, which is
not abridged or modified by any other article of the
constitution, tbe whole of the acts of the grantors cf
tbe two constitutions have conformed to this plain
construction by signing laws wbicb they must have
known to be illegal, if tbe assemblies which passed
them were made illegal, by the action of those who
bad no right to act. So tbe advocates of the rights
of ministers in the Assembly can iva to this clause
of tbe 43d article of tbe constitution, no other inter
pretation than the one affirming ihem, as the lan
guage itself plainly implies and which is clearly eon.
firmed by the subsequent long continued acts of the
As to the ministers representing the King in the
Assembly, tbey do not certainly represent in any
wise bis personal prerogatives, which are confined to
calling and proroguing the Assembly and approving
or rejecting tbe laws which it may have passed, but
in one sens they most clearly represent bim. Tbey
it there by virtue of the position to which be has
appointed them, and tbey bold this position only at
bis pleasure. It is a part of tbeir duty to represent
in tbe Assembly the policy of tLe government of
wbicb ilis Majesty is tbe bead. If tbey fail to do
this or act contrary to it, tbey must of course expect
to be superseded by some one who is in harmouy
with the views of tbe administration cf the Kiog. If
tbey cannot support bis measures or persuade bira to
change them, they muit resign nnd yield up their
seats, as certainly as tbe represeutatie who defies
bis constituents must expect that hu cannot again be
elected, with only this difference, the representative
ill serve through the session whilst tbe minister
can be summarily rejected by the King.
Ibus tne ministers in an lmiKjrtant sene do rep
resent tbe King in fact, however we may object to
the doctrine in theory, and their legislative functions
are the same as those of the nobles. The nobles can
only be unseated for disorderly behavior, however
they may vote for or against government measures.
but minister, may be unseated at the King's pleasure
however decorously they may comport th -uiseUes.
It seems clear I rom tne foregoing that the Uiinl-
ters are entitled to vote, aod also that in a certain
and in an important sense they represent the K'tJg-
Kamehameha V bad but fourteen nobles it is said.
Other reasons than reserving seats for ministers may
have influenced him, but if ministers are not entitled
to seats on other grounds, any such reservation could
not have given them the right for which no provi-
ion is made in the constitution, other than in tbe
43d article, in which it is full and unrestricted.
Une tbiug bowever sbould be remembered by min
uter, nobles aud representatives, and that is, that
tbey assemble to legislate for tbe commou good, and
what is really wUe anl good for one, is good for all.
King, nobles aud people alike; ihut is bad for one
is bad for all, and tbe common pood is what they
are bouud to seek. If they fail in this i hey fail iq
their duty whether they be ministers, nobles or rep.
resentatives. P. v.
We are requested by cur Cvrriipcndent above to
ay that in bis communication, the word Pats'
used '.a reference to the British members ia only to
illustrate the meaning of the tame word in the 43d
article cf tbe constitution, as be is aware the British
