To him, personally, it would 1 a relief, but he looked on it as , a privilege valuable to the people.and of i which they ought not to Is-deprived be- 1 icause it was abused: abuses, however, should i- corrected, and that could be I neat done by limiting the privilege to jsi-tal weigbtag to one ounce and by the ; pn r, ration of a single compendium in I one volume of the public affairs most : necessary to the people. Senator Kdwai Is sjwike of the bill as an utter delusion. The abuses of1 the privilege ought to be tsor- leected, but the lienellls of the. privilege lieloninsl ti the ieople and not the niemliers, and the people should lear, as they ought to bear, the hurdeu of it. However, if it waa abolislied he was Iu favor of abolishing it honestly and completely, and not as proposed by the hill.

To give them the first, they liegan by hedg ing the children's lives w ith a system of rules, borrowed half from the Jewish laws, half from the theory of their sect. Strict morality, the keeping of Hunday as a iieiiodical day of nenitence and j wretchedness, the learning underpeual ty of dark closets and thrashing of the chief duty of man, Hull III was their religion. Lift' they were shown as a straight and hard path through a dark valley with the terrors of .Siuai behind, and the iraps and pitfalls of a flaming hell on either side. Even Jacob's wife, Mary, holding her darlings to her breast, than which no mother's ever ached or throbbed with more tenderness, had no other sermon to urea, h to them. It never occurred to her or her husband that it was into just such fields of grain i as those about them, under just such ; towering cedars, that Jesus led his dis ciples and taught them, by the sunshine and the rain, the tender mercies of God. The world grew green around them, faded again and wrapjied iUuf in snow, year after year: the river sang its mys terious song to the woods at their very I door; and overhead the stars that had I declared to the patriarchs of the old world the infinite secrets of Jehovah, I blazoned them forth still unregarded.

The committee will propose the emancipation of the slaves to be com plete iu four mouths after the promul gal ou of the passage of the bill. Varsbal (Serrano and the conservative deputies will decide to-day upon the course they intend to pursue. The members of the late Cabinet has published a declaration repudiating the idea that they favored the sale af the Island of Cuba. Honolulu i 'orrcsiKimtence Xe.r York Tritium The death of his late Majesty Kanie hameha V. has left the Hawaiian kinir.ioui wiihout a head. The .Sov ereign iust deceased was the liramison of tiie t;real Kamehameha, a famous warrior who, about sixty years ago, re duced mider his sway .ill tlie islands composing the group, and established a dynasty. The reign just closed had ex tended over a neriml of nine vears, the King expiring at the age of foitv-two. on the anniversary of his birth. Il has been known for mouths thai the Sov erein was in a very precarious state of health, but no official bulletin stating the lac's ,s-as allowed to Ik- published. On the morning of t'je eleventh instant he walked to his breakfast table, am soon afterward returning, lay down and expired without a struggle. ."Mime ac count of the ceremonies observed in this mid-occ-tn kingdom on occasions of death in the royal lamily will probably be ..I interest, it ,s the universal cus tom ot the natives to wail for the dead. Men and women join iu uttering a long- urawu, plaintive cry, broken into a quaver as by the striking of the hand against the throat. The cry was sent up by the household atteudauls as soon as the King was known to haveexpired. The royal .standard was lowered and forty-two minute-guns lired from the battery on Punch-Bowl Hill, an extinct ezatarjnat babtad tlie city. It is the custom here, when one of high in iik has died, to immediately prepme the body for lying hi state during the very few hours that this climate will allow. It is then inclosed iu tin ail tight . offiu, which remains for several weeks in the palace, surrounded by signs of honor aud accessible to visitors. During Ibis ieriod the native- resort nightly iu throngs to the premises and Dead the lime in wailing. In accor dant, w itli this custom the aunexed prochtmatioa was issued by authority of oue of the royal household: "A Command Thin iba command, a call, an invitation to the common people, the tribes, the families and divisions of the ancient subjects of the different islands, to tissemble and come, men, women and children, to attend upon and watch the OOrpse of our King and lord, to remain there every night until the day ol the funeral. The mauka gate of Ihe palace yard will be open tor you every evening una! me hour of half past seven o'clock lifter which it will lie tabu. Drunkenness and disorderly or bad con duct is forbidden. But the ouiet ex- pre.-.-ion of sorrow, and real songs of griei, is what is allowed. ' J was oue of the few foreigners who, by taking ad vantage oi the car hfest ounortunitv. gained access to the palace before tiie gate- were shut, which was done even before the expiration of the brief time appointed for visitors. The residence of the .Sovereign is a small and plain build ing in the center of a large square, in closed by a high stone wall. Passing through the gates, now draped iu mourning aud guarded by the police, we appioaclie.1 the palace step-, on either side of which a detachment of Hawaiian soldiers was drawn up, pre senting a line military appearance. Throngs of natives were pouring up the broad way, intent on taking a last look on their dead ruler. All the officers of the Kingdom, civil and military, were in attendance. The bodv of the late King lay upon a high dais, dressed in a uniform that presented an incongruous combination. There were red panta loons and a black coat; the hands were incased in white kid gloves. Three orders adorned the breast. To a stran ger in the kingdom, the most interesting of the surroundings were the large mantles which were limiwii over tiie bier. These are tlie famous feather cloaks, the peculiar possession of royal ty, l hey are made by fastening yellow feathers upon a network of twine, the feathers lieing procured from a bird that beiii- otic onlv under each wing. A vast amount of time and labor must lie expended to make oue of these mantles, wh.eh are large enough to cover the body ol a man and tall in folds about him. They descend from generation to generation, ami are never allowed to pass out of tiie royal family, formiug as thev do the .state robes. The ap- pearanee is exceedingly beautiful; a tine golden color is enhanced by the graceful lorms in which the flexible material naturally falls. At the head of the dais was a stand bearing the sword and hat of the deceased, and on other tables were flowers and a silver dish in which was burning incense. The ( 'abinet Ministers stood together at the head, while the sister of the late King, known as Ruth, the only surviving member of the race of Kamcbamehas, sat by the side of the corpse, the picture of sorrow. On each side of the body were two men continually waving what are called kultilin. There are staffs bearing feath ers, made to stand erect like gigantic plumes. The original idea in this custom is said to lie to keep evil spirits aloof from the dead. It is a general observance among the natives. The line of visitors passed by within view of the liody, and out into the palace yard. On the veranda of a house ad joining the King's residence stood a native woman, who has for many years exercised (windless control over the King. She han been known as bis "sorceress," and is said to have sus tained to him eveu more intimate relation.-. .She was uttering the wail for the dead at the top of her roioe. 8he had a girdle drawn tightly around her body to assist in the prolonged exercise of the lungs. Her misused power is gone, and she knows herself to be the object of universal aversion. The burial of the late King will not take place for several weeks. " Him. but both .'aimer and wife were deal and blind. ( iod was to lie ap proached only through a dog-eafll catechism, and lields and river were worth only so much fish and wheat per year. "The children's salvation lieing thus provided ior, the next thing o 1 insured was inoney. Husband aud wife worked and stinted as only a Scotch Irish family can work or stint. All produce that was saleable went to the market; the children were reared on the refuse, the skim-milk, jioorest bacon, ami watery potatoes. Their clothes were coarse and patched, their feet bare aud chilblaneu. The house grew barer year by year, the father's back more In-lit, his face harder, but the balance iu bauk increased dollar by dollar. As for the plump, bonny Mary, she had long ago joined that sisterhood of iean, yellow-skinned, toothless women who. with dirty calico dresses and wisps of hair twisted up behind, are sometimes found in farm lious.-s, like ghastly megrims, or daylight -jieetres of a wasted life. When "churning and sciubbing were done she would -it up until near morniug washing and darn ing their clothes, that tin y might look more "genteel'' than she, dragging her aching Ixsly to look at tlu in when they slept, praying for them with a fierce longing to have power to lie Wod Him self to lie able to protect and care lor them. The boys hud certain strong annual propensities and physical tendencies which required skill and knowledge to guide or restrain. One had a morbid imagination; another a tendency to alcoholic poisoning, against winch Ins diet and training from in fancy should have defended him. The girls, lift to themselves, were tilling their bruins with sickly, false fancies of life and their w orks in it. But what time had Mary to read or acquire in any way the power to comprehend or help her children'.' There was tne scrubbing aud churning lo lie done, the money to be saved. Hoys and girts were sent to colleges aud seminaries: every advantage thai education could give them was theirs; the only nnstaKe Jacob and his wife made iu this respect was not to educate themselves as weil. The children went forward: they sat dowu and grabbed. What is the end of it all'.' The daughters grew up dys peptic and sickly for the lack of early proper food; they married and died he fore middle age, brilliant, hard women, and neither of them in any sense reli gious. One sou went into politics, was successful, is now a member of Congress, one of the most influential of his party. Jacob and his mother read of his life in Washington, his wife's receptions, his popularity. Hut long ago he was a stranger to them. It is years since he rossed the old threshold. What is there ill common etweeu him aud the ignorant, lioorish farmer and his wife'.' A few weeks ago, the last of the sous cauie home to die; the one of all the children who had real power of in tellect; the only one who was not ashamed to talk of "mother" fondly to the last. He died in her arms a drunken, worthless .sot. The thin, haggard w oman closed his eyes without a tear. "I have lost all my children," she said. " I must have made a mistake somewhere in the I egiuiiiug. God knows." Is no other mother making this mistake?
