ON THE KING'S AHRIVAL FROM LAHA1NA.
Thin day let Honolulu's guns
Pour forth their deafening roar,
And welcome back our Kovul Chief
To Oaliu's verdant shore.
Hawaiian maidens dock yourselves
All in your best array,
And graciously bo pleased to smile
On thin great gala day,
And let the multitudes around
Raiss loud the glad huzza,
'Till Punch lluwl echoes back the name
God bless our gracious King, and long
May he be spared to reign.

Of Love's celestial chain. H.
On the first page our readers will find No.
1 of extracts which we have been permitted
to take from a friend's sketch book. We
selected his visit to the region in question
on Hawaii by the cast route, as it seemed to
be a more novel field than most other locali
ties on these islands. In fact they have
been pretty well used up by scenery hunters,
and to a resident there is not much that is
new to relate.
Extract of a litter from Tahiti, Dec. Q.
" I have seen Pomaro down at Raiatea,
living in a miserably unfit shed, watching for
the approach of any French vessel, on which
she means to flee to one of the two fortresses
which the Kaiatcans have constructed.
There are two in opposite bays, connected
by a valley. 1 have seen one of them, and
1 believe it could only be taken by the sac
rifice of lives."
tp By reference to our shipping intelli
gence, it will be seen that the French whale
ship Angeline, left the Mulgrave Islands,
leaving 12 men ashore, who it is conjectur
ed have cither been destroyed or reduced
to slavery, scarcely preferable to death.
Whale-ships and other vessels will do well
to be upon their guard when in those regions.
An KcvrriAN Mummy. Some years ago,
a chap arrived in Augusta, with one of those
great curiosities, an Egyptian mummy, which
he desired to exhibit. It was requisite then,
that before the exhibition, permission should
be obtained from the judge of some of the
inferior courts. Accordingly, the showman
proceeded to the court house, where the court
was in session, and applied to the judge for
a license, stating that the infinite trouble
and expense, to say nothing of the danger,
he had been fortunate enough to procure the
greatest curiosity ever seen in the United
States. What is it?" asked the judge. "An
Egyptian mummy, may it please the court,
more than three thousand years old," said
the showman. "Three thousand years old!"
exclaimed the judge jumping to his feet,
"and it the darned critter alive V

Madame dc (Jenlis, in a work on the subject
of Time, relates an anecdote of a certain
Chancellor D'Aguesseau, to the following
purport: " The Chancellor, observing that
his wife always delayed ten or twelve min
utes before she came down to dinner, and
being loath to lose so much precious time,
commenced the composition ot a work, which
he prosecuted only while he was thus kept
waiting. The result was, at the end of fif
teen years, u book in three volumes, quarto,
which has gone through several editions, and
is much esteemed." The anecdote is told
as an illustration of the value of time, and to
show how much might be made of the very
crumbs and parings of this valuable com
modity. Naval Monument at Mt. Aununv. Wc
learn from the Mercantile Journal that a
beautiful marble cenotaph has been erected
at Mt. Auburn, by the officers and scientific
corps of our National Exploring Expedition,
in honor of four gentlemen who lost their
lives in that service. These were Lieut. Un
derwood, and Midshipman Henry, who wero
killed by savages on one of the Figi Islands,
and Passed Midshipmen Bcid and Bacon,
who were lost at sea oil Cupe Horn. It is
an honor to the gentlemen who have erected
this monument, that they have thus remem
bered their unfortunate companions. The
j Journal savs: This cenotaph is an Egyp
tian obelisk, twenty-two feet high, and four
feet at the base, erected at the cost of $2000.
The design is by Mr. Drayton, of the Scien
tific corps, and is in the finest style of pure,
simple, monumental beauty. The execution
by Struthcrs Sc Son, of Philadelphia, is wor
thy of the design.
