QUEEN VICTORIA'S BIRTHDAY.
On the LMth May 1819 there was
born to the Duke and Duchess of
Kent it daughter, who lives to-day,
and who has the distinguished honor
to rule over a nation so extensive
and wide spread that it is truly
said "the sun never sets on her soil.'
Her Majesty Queen Victoria at
tains her sixty-lifth year to-day.
On 20th June 1S37, after just hav
ing completed her eighteenth year,
she succeeded to the throne of the
United Kingdom of Great .Britain
and Ireland, and from that time
until the present she has continued
to reign over the grand and heneli
cient British Empire. During Queen
Victoria's reign the prosperity, hap
piness and advancement of Great
.Britain have been unparallcd in the
world's history. It is too well
known, however, that during her
reign there have also been wars.muti
nies, revolutions and turmoils that
have literally made fhe whole
world uake, and in too many of
such troubles has England been in
volved, but never have her humble
subjects ceased to love, honor and
obey their ruler.
Queen Victoria, has, during her
long and prosperous reign, been
singularly fortunate in having at
the head of her Government, men
in whom she and her country could
place implicit trust. At her acces
sion to the throne Viscount Mel
bourne directed the a Hairs of State,
followed by Sir Robert Peel. Lord
John Russell, Earl Derby, Earl of
Aberdeen, .Lord Palmerston. Ben
jamin Disraeli. and last but not least
AVilliam Ewart Gladstone. Her
private life has not been uneventful.
On the 10th February. IsMu. Queen
Victoria married II. II. 11. Prince
Albert. Prince of Coburg and
Gotha, and had issue of nine chil
dren. On the Mth December. IStH.
Her Maiestv was left a widow, and
since, she has had family bereave
ments that have caused menial an
guish and sullering.bui with a true
Christian spirit. he ha- borne her
afllietions nobly. and in her hours of
trial she has received the svmoathv
of the whole civilized world.
On this dav. the sixtv-iit'ih auni
verary of Queen Victoria's birth
day her name will be in the mouth
of her millions of subject-1, who.
with their fellow men will not hes
itate to join in that short hut ja

The sunlit almond-blossom shakes
Take, Ma'lani, this poor Look of souk;
For tho' the faults were thick as dust
In vacant chambers. I could trust
Your kindness. May you rule ui lonfr,
And leave us rulers of your blood
As nohle till th'' latest clay :
May children of cur children say,
she wrought h-r people lasting Kood;
Her c ourt was pure; her life serene;
iol fjave her pe:ice; her land reposed;
A thousand claims to reverence closed
In her as Mother, Wife, and Queen;
"And state-men at her council met
Who knew the seasons, when to take
Occasion byjthe hand, and make
The bounds of freedom wider yet
15y shaping some august decree,
Which kept her throne un.-haken still,
I i road based iin he people's will,
And ceimpas-el by the inviolate sea."
The Police Bill which the Attorney
General has brought in bears the title
"An Act to Create Commissioners of
Police for the Kingdom of the Ha
waiian Islands, and establishing regu
lations lor the appointment and Gov
ernment of the Police and Constabu
lary Force of this Kingdom." It pro
vides for the constitution of four
Boards of Commissioners of Police,
one for Hawaii, one for Maui, Lanai,
and Molokai, one for Oahu and one
for Kauai. The Governors are to be
ex officio Commissioners and Chair
man of the .several Boards. The
other Commissioners are to be ap
pointed by the King in Privy Coun
cil. The appointment and removal
of police ollicer.s is to be wholly in
the hands of these Boards, with the
exception that ''removals" (i.e., dis
missals) are to be subject to the ap
proval of the Attorney-General. The
Marshal is to be cx-ofllcio Inspector
General and Chief of the Police and is
to report to the Boards of Commission
ers. The Attorney-General is autho
rised by this Act to make such ruies
and regulations for the "duties, con
duct and discipline" of the Police
Force as may make it effective and
serviceable. Quarterly returns are to
be made by the Marshal to the Attorney-General
as to the numbers and
elliciency of the Force with statistics
of crimes, misdemeanors and convic
tions, etc. In the Constitution of the
Boards only resident freeholders can
be chosen and each Commissioner
must be an actual resident on the
island to whose Board he is appointed.
The term of ollice of a Commissioner
is to be four years.
We must assume that his personal
experience in ollice has led Mr. Neu
mann to conclude that the arrange
ments contemplated by this Bill will
constitute a salutary change from the
existing state of things. It is quite
certain that the police force cannot
be made more effective by any enact
ment, and we think that the Bill im
poses on the Attorney-General a task
beyond any man's capabilities when it
obliges him to "make such rules, etc.,
as may make the Police Force ef
fective and serviceable." It is neither
by Acts of the legislature nor by the
most skilfully drawn rules, but by
training and constant inspection by
qualified superior officers that this can
be effected. The Bill is no doubt in
tended to lead up to and facilitate
such training and inspection, ami we
hope that it will, if passed which
there seems to be no reason to doubt)
prove a sucee-sful measure. The pro
vision that the Commissioners shall
be residents of the Islands on whose
Boards they hold seats is a sound one.
It is the first thing tending towards
local -elf-government that we have
noticed in anv Hawaiian law.

The Commercial Herald in its review of
trade for the week ending May 15th says:
The business situation in this, the second
week of May, remains, to a great extent, in
the same unsatisfactory state as that to which
frequent reference has been made in months
that are past, if anything, somewhat intensi
tied by the commercial and financial disas
ters that come wafted to us from the Eastern
Atlantic States. Wall street furnishes the
most exciting intelligence, the ground work
of which is based upon the continued heavy
shipments of treasure to Europe. Thirty
three millions of gold taken from the New
York Treasury House within the past few
months, is the direct occasion af a growing
stringency in the money market of the na
tion, that vibrates in every section of the
Union, and calls forth more or k-ss precau
tionary ft-elings from those holding the puipo
strings. The failure of James R. Keciie was
.-eon followed by that of Ward vv Grant. both
firms were heavy operator in Wall street.
Securities, and the combined looses of the
parties mentioned, sum up ten millions of
dollars. What is to follow we know not, the
clouds thicken, and there are whisperings
that forbode evils to cemc. With us, but
few failures have occurred of any magnitude,
although the leading export business of the
Pacific Coast, lias for two years past, been
more or less disastrous to these connected
therewith, yet. with two or three notable
exceptions the threatened torms of the pass
ing year nave been tided over, showing most
conclusively that the business of the years
preceding, in which thf- sam parties figured
txtc n-ivt ly ,uui-t have returned large profits
to th m, i'i' they could not have .- uce--fuliv
stemmed the l.ses that have bet n in-
evi table during i '
ast twelve months. An
other harvest year i at hand that promises
hi iv' returns of cereal-;, and of course more
: le-s anxiety i hown a to a paying mar
ket for the millions tons or more of wheat
that we will have to export. Ton n ago is
abundant with w hich to ship it or!" to Europe
-r elsewhere whenever a profitable door

SiiL-.:r arrives freely from the Sandwich
I-lands. uiid although well controlled by a
few capitalists they seem to bo powerless to
turn the screw upon consumers as in days
that are past.be it for cither sugar or syrup.
Rice i in large stock notably, Siam, com
monly called China, prices rule low, by rea
son of large direct shipments (in transit) to
marts heretofore ordering the same from
our merchants. Hawaiian table rice is in
light stock and is held with a good degree of
