This is by far the most important outcome of the late rebellion. The document was drawn up by A. S. Unrtwcll at the request of the ex-queen, n.nA was presented ou the 2<ith ultimo to President Dole. The document, according to its wording, was executed freely and voluntarily. | Alttkra n Pli-ii for f.hc Hnbels. '. The queen macle a plea for the Ua- vraiians and others who took part, in the rebellion. She hopes executive I clemency will be exercised in ! their cases. She expresses a desire to live in. absolute privacy henceforth. .The document includes a copy of the oath of allegiance taken by her, and closes: "I have caused the foregoing statement to bo prepared . and drawu, and h:u-; signed my name wiUiout having received the slightest sug-gestion from the president of Hawaii concerning the same or any part thereof, or concern- -iujj any action or course of my own in • tho. promises." , .Think thw Quec'n Inslncerts. - The queen's abdication was not unexpected. In many quarters it islooked upon as . a ruse to secure clemency •when she appears before the military court now sitting. It is not generally ' considered that she is sincere in making her .protestation. Sinee last advices evidence - of very damaging character has been piled nround .her. She was arrested ou a military warrant on the JOth instant. .No protest was made whcu the papers were served OM her, aod without delay she was escorted to the executive building, and confined iu a room, where she now remains under guard.

The munitions of war consisted of thirty-four ritles, • eleven pistols, several swords, a large amount of cartridges .and twenty-one dynamite bombs. The discovery of this small arsenal caused-a. great deal of indignation among all classes and proved conclusively that the queen is in league with the rebels.
