ould be letter for the future that they liy the matter down in black and white. It afi'ectH the future management of the House aiid it i-i a necessity. The present Ministrv, uctiug free from pressure, will hay exactly what he had said. The principle commend.-, iteelf to their own common sene. Mr. Kaulukou moved the resolution be in tietinitelj postponed. Mr. Keau moved the previous question. Carried. Mr. Cecil Brown fcaid the reason he intro duced the resolutieiijwas to save a repetition in the Legislature of a scene which in itself was rather disgusting. That wa-j when four . cf His Majesty's Ministers decided by their ow, vote on their own capabilities of admin- ibtering in thi. Kingdom. In previous .Leg- islatures this had arisen, and it was better that the matter should be settled once for all. Aye and noes were called on indefinite postponement as follows : Ayes Gibson, Gulick, Kapena, Neumann, Parker, liush, J . .Yiott sirmth, ivaae, aiKer, Macsarlane, Kaulukou, Keau, Lilikalanai, ttaker, Amaru, Kaulia, Aholo, Kamakele, Gardner, Nahinu, Kaunamano, Palohau, j Kupihea, N'akaleka and Kanoa.

Brown, Dole and Howell. Total, 20. Mr. Nawahi ottered a resolution asking whether the Minister of Finance had iu Htructed the Tax Assessors to make the usual exemption of .'3U0. Mr. Kupena said the instructions given to the Tax Assessors are posted inside their booh. The resolution was linally withdrawn.

Mr. Gibson, in the Cabinet, the object of legislative investigation, may be criticised as lively as those opposed to him in politics may choose, but Mr. Gibon, as JTremier Minister of this Kingdom, inviting, in an official capacity, a foreign lrince to meet the representatives of their Governments ami the people of these islands, should be secure from scurrility, out of respect to Hi i?ov reicn. and the office he holds. This was not to be so. The organs of the Opposition could not be generous j enough to lose an opportunity of j iuixin" politics in a matter with which they should have had no con- j cern. Tlw Bulletin, that anonymous mud-scoop, takes charge of the entire business and not only says who ought to go, ami who ought to stay away, but has the audacity to give Prince Oscar himself to understand what the citizens of Honolulu feel like doing for him. The citizens must feel proud of their mouthpiece this lofty negotiator between a l'rince and nis hosts. This gall is rare ami wonderful, and it is a pity that like all the Bulletin's stuff, it is anony- raous. The Hawaiian assumes a more decent tone, but it is afraid that .some of the people who signed the petition may be tempted to drink the Minister's wine. Can it be pos sible that in the face of this desperate opposition the reception to the Prince will take place to.nijht? The Minister of Foreign Allaire had bet- tersend an apology to the l'rince, and declare that, since the Jiullctin and Hawaiian object to the reception the afrajr camiot possibly come on". IN THE SULKS. II it should please His Majesty to comr,iy wjtn the wishes of the Oppo- sition, if he should say to them, "gen tlemen you are right. I have no doubt but another Ministry would much i m,n the llIUir?3 of the 11Mf rv wll1 t n th i.,ow of the present Cabinet? What gen - . r. ... ' tleman of the Opposition would step , j . i . ... . , forth as a candidate for Minister . ,.. , , 0 CJibson's shoes? who would take the ... r, , . . , , shoulders would Kapems mantle j fall? Then indeed might we look for- ward to lively times. The patriots who made the longest speeches in the House, and who took the most active part in public meetings, would be entitled to crowd to the front, and crying ''Behold it iswe who have saved the country from a dangerous Cabinet, we demand that we be at once put in to prove how much differ ently we will do." We believe that His Majesty would turn a deaf ear to these deliverers, even were their sup plications chanted to the choicest church music. His selections would in all probability come from outside sources, which would give the Oppo sition an entirely new grievance. In the beginning of this fight we were in full sympathy with them. We de- precated the intense . personality of the campaign, but we respected the motives of many of the members of the anti-Ministerial party. We hoped that something good would come out of all this excitement, because there is always good in earnest healthy Opposition. But like many another I good movement, it was spoiled by the j rancor of a few nialignants who : worked not for a better condition of ! a Hairs, but for the gratitication of their juivate malice. So far nothing has been eftected to correct the I abuses the report of the Finance j Committee enumerated. The Depart- men t of the Minister of the Interior 5 , it was nvemoutns ago, nor nave we ofanychan-e having been made i e Auditor-fVenerars system of i heard of : m th j book-keeping. The vork of the I-eg-' islutuie ha- dr-i:gcd most painfully since the vote oo the ami-Ministerial resolution, as i." th'- Op;-os.ition were in (he Milks ;Ui(i had couclllileil to put in their time in o! u'li-'t ion and not io their duty towatds their constitu ents and the count.-.-, h Mr. Gibson and his colleagues :iiv not to i" turned out to please them, they make a wry face, and dei-iaie they shan't work any more, that they are not well treated, ami that they don't feel like going ahead with the business of the country. There should he an end to all this. Let '.hem keep digging away at the Cabinet just as much as they please, but gentlemen do not al low this amusement to interfere with vour sworn duties in this Assembly. AN ILL-NATURED SNAKL. We observe that our good friends ot the Saturday J'rts are not perfectly satisfied with the really very excel lent and bountiful supper served at the Fourth of July ball. The exceed- gums, and pine-apples, and other ingly moral and severely temperate fruits would cease to grow unless gentlemen of that journal probably there was a change in the Ministry, failed to liud among the many deli- or even if they did grow they would cacies spread before them, their cus- : be of no use to anybody, our coutem tomary porringer of muttou stew, or porary says that if the King throws plate of frugal fish-balls; but their real objection to the repast, they would have the sewing circle to which they belong understand, was that "a great ileal of wine was served in opposition to the s.-nse of the best American clement of the community, and of a majority of those who con tributed.'' The gentlemen, it seems to us, are somewhat indiscreet in thus challenging a comparison between the goodly nu:uLer Americans in this eommunkv who do not object ; to :i glass of wine on proper occasions, ami tho-e whose sniveling hypocrisy ; and fear of the puldic gutter comtnyn i them to confine their indulgence "To the privacy of their own closet-. It I is to be regretted that the publisher I and editor of the Press were not con- suited by the Fourth of July Commit- tees of Arrangement. Their familiari- j sider it just one of the biggest arti ty with the methods of civilization, j cles in the Palace furniture, and their many feminine virtues en- title their opinions to some weight, especially in matters relating to American respectability and man hood and the appointments i u Fourth of July lunch table. The ad vice of such authorities cannot well be disregarded: and it is es sential that they should be satisfied in advance with the arrangements of all public lunch tables, in order that theymay receive an indorsement of respectability from them, and that "best American element," of which they seem to be the major part, True, it may be said that the Fourth of July supper was not prepared ! t?I)eciaIIy for these gentlemen; that among the guests ot the evening, ! . , . , . i m addition to the ollicers of a .wed- ; . , , r ,. i" and an Italian man-of-war, were I . A . 4. His Majesty and the prominent of- ficials of the Kingdom, and that cold water would have been a niggardly beverage in which to exchange the national courtesies of the occasion; and, finally, that wine, in accordance with the customs of all civilized na tions, is an indispensable part of such entertainments, particularly when honored by distinguished guests, and cannot well be omitted without un pleasant comment. But these unim portant considerations should have no weight against the ripe judgment of the Press. Wine was there for the use of those who deired it, and to be let alone by the few who preferred lemonade or cold water. The gentle- men of the Press either got too much of it for the peace of their stomachs, or to little for the complete gratifi- cation of their appetites, and, there- fore, either in an agony of cramps from a surfeit of the beverage, or a moral spasm from a compulsory and distasteful abstention, they cry out against it in the name of the "best American element." Fie, neighbor! Stop snivleing. "Because thou art virtuous, shall titers be no more cakes and ale?" MHMHnMMMMMOIMaMH W'K.viiV of cajoling His MajeMy on the Ministry uestion, our evening contemporaries have thrown oft" all semblance of respeet for the King of these islands, anl diseuss him with a contemptuous disrespect most im- proper, and most unbecoming. The Bulletin declares that the petition couuter to tb Opposition is Minister Gibson's and the King's, fund the! JIaivatian ot last evening sneenngly remarks: Tiie King is said to be inditlert-nt. Most men are when their wants are supplied ami they are surrounded by present comfor;. This is the tone that lias character ized these journals for weeks past, but the lau':i'tt is usually more circumspect in speaking of His Maiestv. The King is not to be dis turbed by newspaper clamor coming j from the ranks of a i arty which has j shown little manliness in this con- ' test, lint these strangers who are: the guests of tiiis ( Jovernnient, and. who are enjoying all the benefits of. its hospitality, should not allow their personal animosity sneer and snarl at to leal them to the Sovereign of these generous Hawaiian people, and j insinuate that lie is not keenly alive ! at alt times to tlu-ir interests. Tin: Jlawaiian draws a melanchoiy picture. In the course of lugubrious editorial last evening, wherein we were informed that the guavus. and 1 the anti-Oibson petition in the waste basket he will see "the intelligence and worth of this community sitting silently waiting in anxious expecta tion of the first chance to fold their tents, and with a sad "Aloha' take themselves, their fortunes and their families to another land, where com paratively honest Government and fair dealing prevail." W ell of course i ' it would be too bad " to lose the honest, well meaning gentlemen who have signed this petition, and we bc- i lieve they have no intention of J parting-, but if the v0o Chinese who , j signed that petition were "to fold ; their tent.", and with a ?-ad 'Aloha' 1 j take them-elves, their fortune- and j their families to another land," we ; should give three ringing cheer for His Majesty's wa-te basket, and con- It seems odd that so Irirge aomantity of fruit should be allowed to rot on the ground. There arc mangoes -nough within " acre- of this island to keep a cannery engaged fr three month-. Pineapples too, seem to be going a begging for some one to put them up in tins and sell them at a profit to the epicure- of the Coast.

We suppose it does, because when members high up in the church, and strong iti their advocacy of temper ance principles, appear on the street day after day with bleary eyes, and blushing noses, we cannot attribute this physical phenomena to ice ; water.
