Mr. Thackeray has hinuclf told us
how his "Vanity Fair" was hawked
about from publisher to publisher, and
its failure everywhere predicted. For a
long period Charlotte llrontc's "Pro
fessor" shared the same f.ite vgain,
Mr. Kinghlce's carefully composed
" Eotlien." the labor of several vears,
was destined to go the weary round of
publishers m vain, and it was only
when its author induced one of that
cautious fraternity to accept the classic
little work as a present, Inat he enjoyed
the gratification of seeing it in print.
The first chapter of " Hie Diary of
3 Lite Physician" was offered suc
cessively to the conductors ol the three
leading London magazines, and re
jected as "unsuitable to their pages,"
and " not likely to interest the public,"
until Mr. Warren, then a young man ot
threc-and-twenty, and a law student, be
thought himself of Illackwood. " I re
member taking my packet," he says,
"to Mr. Cadell's in the Strand, with a
suspicion that I should never see or
hear anything more of it; but shortly
after I received a letter from Mr. Illack
wood, informing me that he had inser
ted the chapter, and begging me to
make arrangements for immediately
proceeding regularly with the scries.
lie expressed his cordial approval ot
that portion, and predicted that I was
likely to produce a series of papers
well suited to his magazine, 'and cal
culated to interest the public."
Turning now for a moment to the
disciples of dramatic authorship, we
discover that their experience is similar
to that of many authors. Poor Tom
Robertson that indefatigable actor and
dramatistsank into his grave almost
before he saw the dawn of his fame ;
and John Baldwin Iluckstone, during
his struggling career, was in the habit
of pawning his manuscripts with Mr.
Lacy, the theatrical publisher, in order
to procure bread, upon one occasion,
when met by a sympathizing actor in
the street, he apiwared with scarcely a
shoe to his feet, and almost broken
hearted, declaring that all his earthly
anticipations were centered upon the
acceptance of a comedy, the rejection
of which would certainly prove fatal to
his existence. In the end, happily for
him, the comedy was accepted.
The following anecdote is connected
with the history of the Odeon, one of
the lirst theaters in Pans. One day a
young author c&mc to ascertain the fate
of his piece, which, by the way, had
appeared such a formidable package,
upon its receipt, that the secretary was
not posscsseu ol sufficient moral cour
ing, and to whom the great Newton. that wrote them, were thrown into his

and thoughtless, and being left atone in away"' Certainly, if but one line of
his study for awhile, she declared to that " mournful elegy " written by the
herself that she would "set his mines Immortal Hard could be recovered and
age to untie the tape that bound it.
"It is not written in the style to suit the
theater," he replied, handing back the i not generally known that Swift's "'
manuscript. "It is not bad, but it is! 0f a Tub" was introduced to the w

deficient irrintercst." At this juncture,
the younfj man smiled, md untying the
"roll, he displayed some quires of blank
paper. Thus convicted, the secretary
shook hands with the aspirant, invited
him to dinner, and shortly afterward
assisted him to a successful debut at the
Odeon. Another author once waited
upon the (wpular manager of a London
theater, inquiring the result of the per
usal of his manuscript; whereupon the
other, having forgotten all about it,
carefully opened a large drawer, exhi
biting a heterogeneous mass of docu
ments, and exclaimed; "There! help
yourself. I don't know exactly which is
yours, but you may take any one of
them you like."
Indeed, volumes might be written
upon the difficulties sometimes encoun
tered in climbing the literary ladder,
and whilst the more persevering have
ultimately achieved the goal of their
ambition, others have been fated to see
their writings consumed to oblivion.
and have themselves perhaps sunk into
an early grave, consequent upon the
disappointments and privations en
dured. When the poet Chatterton was
found Iving dead in his garret in Hook
street his manuscripts had been strewn
upon the floor, torn into a thousand
nieces. Thus much good literature
has often been lost to posterity. A
number of instances, too. might be cited
wherein persons have risen from their
deathbeds to destroy their manuscripts,
anil which task has either proved so
distrevsing to their sensibilities or fatigu
ing iu ineir pnysicai powers mat tney
immediately afterward expired. It is
placed upon record how Colardeau.
that elegant versifier of "Pope's Epistfe
of Rloisa to Abelard," recollected at the
approach of his death that he had not
destroyed what was written of a trans
lation of Tasso, and unwilling to intrust
,1111 uviivaic untie in ma tricnus, lie
raised himself from hi? bed, and drag
ging his ferble frame to the place where
the manuscript was deposited, with a last
effort he consumed it In, the flames. In
another example, an author of celebrity
directed his papers to be brought to his
bed, and there, the attendant holding a
light, he burned them, smiling as the
greedy flames devoured what had been
lus.vvork for ) cars.
Few authors willingly destroy any
manuscript that has cost them a long
period of toiland research, though history
recprds.nurncrous example where the
"VTrtatn manuscripts has almost
irremediable misfortune to
sc story of Mr. Carlylc
f the first volume
' his friend
to rights," with which words she de
liberately cleared the table, and swept
the who'c of his paers into the fire,
thus destroying calculations which had
rxn the work of upw?rd of forty years.
Without one word, however, the phi
losopher calmly recommenced his task,
with more pain than can readily be
imagined. Most readers also will re
mcmlcr the similar misadventure which
occurred to Sir Isaac Newton.
Of manuscripts which have perished
through the ignorance or malignity of
the illiterate, there arc numerous in
stances. The original " Magna Charta,"
when all Us appendages of scats and
signatures, was one day discovered by
Sir Robert Cotton in the hands of his
tailor, who with shears was already in
the act of cutting up into measures that
priceless document, which liatj been so
long given up as lost. He bought the
curiosity for a trifle, and caused it to be
preserved, where it is still to be seen,
in theCottonian Library, with the marks
of dilapidation plainly apparent, l lie
immortal works of Acobart were found
by Papirius Masson in the hands ofa
bookbinder at Lyons, the mechanic
having long been in the habit of using
the manuscript sheets for the purpose
of lining the covers of his books. Simi
larly, a stray page of the second decade
of Livy was found by a man of letters
concealed under the parchment of his
battledore, as he was amusing himself
at that pastime in the country. He at
once hastened to the maker of the battle
dore, but alas1 it was too late the man
had used the very last sheet ol the
manuscript of Livy about a week be
fore. Fire and shipwreck have at various
periods caused considerable havoc
among manuscripts. Many of our oldest
Anglo-Saxon manuscripts were con
sumed some years ago by a fire in the
Cottonian Library; and those vhich re
main present a baked and shriveled
appearance, rendering them almost un
recognizable. Hen Johnson on one oc
casion sustained the loss of the labors
of twenty-one years, within one short
hour, by lire , and Meninsky's famous
Persian Dictionary met with a like fate
from the effects of a bomb falling upon
the roof of his house during the siege
of Vienna by the Turks.
National libraries have occasionally
been lost at sea. In the beginning of
the last century a wealthy burgomaster
of Mtddleburg, in the Netherlands,
named I ludde, actuated solely by liter
ary curiosity, made a journey to China :
and after traveling through the whole of
the provinces, he set sail for hurope,
laden with a manuscript collection of
his observations, the labor of thirty years,
the whole of which was sunk in the
ocean. Again, Cluarino Vcrenese, one
of those learned Italians who volun
teered to travel through Greece for the
recovery of ancient manuscripts, had his
perseverance repaid by the acquisition
of many priceless treasures, Returning
to Italy, however, he was shipwrecked;
and such wa his grief at the loss of this
collection that his hair became suddenly
Returning to literature, it is perhaps
offered for sale, we should then have a
pleasing and memorable opportunity of
marking the estimation in which the
poet is held by mankind. Chamheri

with such cunning secrecy that the
manuscript was actually thrown from
a passing coach into the door-way of the
bookseller who afterward published it.
"Gulliver's Travels" was given to the
public in the same mysterious manner.
Of Defoe's world-famous " Robinson
Crusoe," published in 17 19, we are told
that it was only taken up by Taylor
who purchased the manuscript, and
netted one thousand pounds by the
publication aftcrevcry other bookseller
in town had refused it. In a similar
manner, one bookseller refused to give
twenty-five pounds for the manuscript
of 1-ieldings " lorn Jones; -while an
other bought it and cleared not less
than eighteen thousand pounds by the
venture during his lifetime.
With a few particulars touching upon
the value of manuscripts which have at
various periods been put up for public
sale after the death of their authors, we
will bring our paper to a conclusion.
When, some years ago, the manu
script of Scott's "Guy Mannering"came
into the market, the United States gladly
secured the precious treasure at a cost
of three hundred and eighty guineas;
and in 1867, at a sale of the manuscripts
which had belonged to Mr. Cadell, the
well-known publisher, the " Lady of the
Ijlce" was sold for two hundred and
seventy-seven guineas, and ''Rokeby"
realized one hundred and thirty-six
guineas, both becoming the property of
Mr. Hope-Scott. At the same sale Sir
William Fraser paidtvvohundred guineas
for the manuscript of " Marmion j"
whilst the same appreciative collector
ot literary antiquities paid, in 1875, so
high a price as two hundred and fifty
guineas for Gray's "Elegv in a Country
Churchyard," a composition occupying
no more than four quarto sheets of
Of Charles Dickens's manuscripts,
"The Christmas Carol" was purchased
by Mr. Harvey of St. James street for
the sunt of one hundred and fifty pounds,
anil resold by him for two hundred and
fifty pounds j "The Hattle of Life" is still
held on sale by that gentleman; and
"Our Mutual Friend" was purchased,
on behalf of Mr. George Washington
Childs of Philadelphia, by Mr. Ilotten,
tor two hundred pounds.
Not very long ago, the manuscript of
a shott poem by Hums brougnt seventy
guineas, yet this sum must be regarded
as but a small proportion of that value
which might be realized for only one
line not to sneak of one play written
by Shakeseare's own hand. In his

devote their energies, skill and capital to the
cultivation of Ihe soil.
The very existence of this country depends
on the land and its products I we hare no
mining nor manufacturing districts whatsoever,
excepting those of the latter, which arc directly
dependent upon agriculture, namely, the
making of sugar and the cleaning of rice.
Hint out those two enterprises referred to, and
the Hawaiian Islands still sink back Into a
mere historical name, a country interesting for
having been known for a century, and which,
among the nations of the earth, failed in the
struggle for existence.
Many will remember the rU)s when litis
community almost entirely depended upon the
successes of the whaling fleet for its subsist
ence, and remember the time when the cul

Vnow that after the decline of the whaling
fleet Ihe people turned their attention to the
raising of sugar and rice, and since the rati
fication of the Reciprocity Treaty with
America both sugar and rice have been our
staple articles of export, in fact, almost the
These two products, no doubt, have added
much to the wealth and prosperity of these
islands, but I doubt whether to the extent
which many have believed and are labeling
in. With small chance of improvement the
sugar culture here is now suffering the extreme
of depression from causes beyond human con
trol, and the prices obtained for rice have
frequently been below the actual cost of pro
duction, although this cttturc is carried on by
a people known for its industrial habits and
Considering the amount of capital invested
and the benefit this country had for some ears
from the reciprocit) treaty, the future prospects
of the industries alios e referred to are by no
The promoters of these enterprises, as far as
the cash advances are concerned, have been
mainly the. agents in Honolulj. Working
with capital partly foreign, partly gained here
commercially, and in latter ears partly by
profits on agricultural products of this country.
What proportion of the country's present
wealth should be accredited to agriculture
would be impossible to tell, but we know that,
th all the advantages we have had, agents
look to-day upon the presented drafts from
sugar and rice plantations with the same
dread as they did eight )ears ago.
This may be attributed to many causes,
some be)ond our control, but with sugar plan
tations in particular, I believe lhat the high
cost of labor, in many cases poor labor at that,
has brought about the present state of affairs.
The public purse has contributed immense
sums towards obtaining foreign labor, in 1876
$5,000, in 1S7S, $50,000, in 1SS0, $100,000.
in 1SS2, $500,000. Planters directly and in
directly also bear a large portion ol the burden;
they paid $209, 2S6 direct towards this purpose
during the last biennial penod alone.
At such cost men arc brought here in order
to keep the various plantations running ; they
serve out their contracts and then take to other
occupations or leave the country. Whether
for their own interest plantation owners have
done and a(e doing their duty by those people
whom chance and contract placed for a term
under their control, and whether they ever
tries! to make them contented in order to in
duce them to remain after the expiration of the
contract, I question very much.
Their pay, rations, houses and lands, these
laborers, no- doubt, received as per contract,
but were they ever assisted, and "being
strangers,"' instructed to make use of that land
for their own benefit ?
In my opinion, one of our greatest diffi
culties lies In the "barrenness of the lands
surrounding the laborer's cottages." Tell
these people what plants It would be to their
advantage to grow ; show thtm the way to
small industries, some of which the women
and children can assist In ; supply them
with the needed seeds and plants, and ou
will find that the majority of your laborers will
look upon the premises they have cultivated
as their home, they will with their growing up
children remain on the place and supply the
plantations with Ihe neetled labor for the fu.
To carry out this plan would not be diffi

has enough of them, but by employing a pro

are required but being a gartlnci by ptofesslon,

All I wish lo urge upon plantation owners

It Is surprising what an immense number of

this plan was adopted by plantation owners
and other owners of extensive lands, they

where the grape vine and the palm tree grow

in; now let us do what is in our power to

Our needs of agriculture do not lie solely in
the acquisition of cheap servile laborers, but
rather in raising their standard of intelligence,
in the acquisition of higher grades ofagricultur
ists, and of better methods of cultivation. In
order to a make beginning towards this end I
have urged the employment of professional
I further urge'the (and and plantation own'
efs to form a society for the mutual information
and help. If, for instance, every agriculturist
on these islands would give his experience, ob
servation and opinion on agricultural and in
dustrial milters, particularly pertainine to this
country, in writing, much valuable information
could in a short time be gathered. Even
clippings from newspapers may often be of
value; all this could be sent to a committee.
and if found to be ol sufficient interest, could
be published. Much more might be said about
mutual assistance. I have no doubts of the be
neficial results to be derived therefrom, but
joint action of those particularly-interested is ab
solutely necessary in order to secure success.

neighbors of fsapoleon Ul, at Compcigne, ap
pears the following as a factt Napoleon's fas
cination for the Mademoiselle de Monlijo, who
afterward became the Empress Eugenie, dated
Horn ine lime wnen thai sprightly beauty gave
him a sharp horse-whipping. The emperor
had inviicU Mademoiselle de Monlijo and her
mother tnCompiegne, and shots ed ihern much
attention at hunting parties. One evening when
the. hunt came home tale rsatsnleon anDeared In
Mademoiselle de Montlio's chamber, and this
so enraged the beauty Inat she caught up her
riding vthip and thrashes! hip soundly over
bis head and cars. This vxin brought about
an eiplanation, and in course ol tunc came the
famous letter in vthich Narulcon eapressed
his desire lo hare Mademoiselle Eugenie la
ife a letter which the mother lost no time
in making public, and which is now religiously
preserved in the archives of the family at Mad

empress was much persecuted by Napoleon be
fore he made her his proposal of matriage, am
it is related that on one occasion he was so
much enraged at some act which he considered
prudery lhat he put spurs to hit horse and
gallopea away, leaving her to find her way
home throueh the forest at best she coulJ. The
pool girl lost her way home, and did nut reach
