edited by Huv. !.. Aii.MSTi;o.M. The see.ond
nmn!er of this useful paper has made its
appearance, and givws a good earnest by the
variety and inlere.t of its articles and its full
freight of political and general news, of the
, intention of the editor to make it a genuine
liiwaiian wirswpr. If it continues to be
conducted in this manner it will open new
sources of knowledge and information to the
indigenous population, and be the means
of giving them an insight into their own
political affairs, and those of other countries,
'flic following list of articles comprised
within the present number will best show the
diligence of the editor and the general scope
of the paper, Resides several communica
tions from natives, on general topics, it has
a summary of the political relations of the
country with the United States and England,
comprising a brief account of the difficul
ties arising from the Wiley case, the charges
of the U. S. Commissioner, the Charlton
land case, the report of II. M.'s Commis
sioner upon the case of If. M.'s late Secre
tary of State, the recent changes in the
cabinet, the letter of condolence from Ameri
can citizens to J lis Majesty, appointment
of new nobles, obituary of JIaalilio, a me
moir of Kapiolani, beside the local and
general news of the day. The paper is
highly deserving the patronage of the friends
of the nation.

We learn from a late number of the North
American Review, that there are cypresses
in Mexico, whose ages vary from to
4024 years, at the minimum estimate of sci
entific calculation; at the maximum, from
3130 to 5124 years, or almost coeval with
the creation. These calculations are based
upon inspection of the layers of the wood as
compared with the known age and relative
i ue girin oi me cypress ot Montezuma n

Maria del Thulc, the Nestor of the race, is
near the base one hundred and twenty-two
feet, or forty feel in diameter. Its height is
not given, but the tree as yet shows no signs
The Pinns Davzlasi attains an altitude
of from '200 to 300 feet : one specimen

Complaints have reached us in regard to
peddling of goods from whale ships about
the streets of Lahaina to the serious detri
ment of the business of the licensed trades
men. It is said that musters are given to na
tives who hawk them about and in that man
ner dispose of a considerable quantity. We
also hear that much liquor is "secretly sold,
and that Lahina without a License, is much
worse off than if there were a licensed grog
shop, which would put a stop to the unlawful
and irresponsible vending of alcoholic drinks.
If these things are so, measures should be ta
ken to put a stop to both practices, and to do
justice to the regular shop-keepers. Hut, as
it not uncommonly happens, that reports of
s'ich nature arise from very trivial and isola
ted circumstances, we should be glad to hear
more definitely upon the subject from those
who are in a situation to know the actual
state of the case.

HARM'S H. NICHOLSON rs. JOHN WILLY.
Cask ok Account i,'KTffKtiS Paiitnkrs.
The loin having MM,M dissohed ,y mutual consent,
Wiley had agreed t purchase "of Nicholson his
undivided half of all H, partnership property, in
cluding tlio choscs in action, book debts and other
available assets of the tin,., f.,r which ,c was to
pny Nieliolnon in a specified time. The anion was
brought to recover the purchase money of Wiley.
The items of demand wen: made, out from memory
of the book and other vouchers in the possession
of Wiley, n ml proved to be correct by the evidence
of a clerk employed by the. parties at the time
of the dissolution. The books tho highest evi
dence were in the defendant's custody, and could
not bo produced by the. plaintifl".
Tho Attorney General, by direction of (he Gov
ernor, read the following charge :
(irnthnien, The question before you is plain.
It is one of simple account between partners. The
partnership was dissolved by consent, and the
books were sullercd by Nicholson to remain in the
possession of Wiley. Whatever nny have been the
motives of the dissolution does not matter. It has
taken place; and now Nicholson, not having the
books, sues Wiley in whose possession they u re, for
a balance alleged l be due him, which he has
proven by a witness who had the books in char-re.
Wiley denies it verbally, but has not. proved his
denial, which if it was a valid one, he mig):t un
doubtedly have proved from the vouchers in his
custody, If he declines to produce them, it is a
legal admission on his part that the books would
not show a better conclusion in his favor. The
testimony of one witness is sufficient in law. It
will bo for you to say how much the plaint ill' is en
titled to, if any thin-'. Consider besides in your
verdict who is to be charged with the costs.
The non-iiot ideation of tho defendant to be pre
sent at the drawing of the jury, should have been
taken advantage of by him w hen the jury w ere em
pannelled, when the court would have considered
how far it disqualified the jury, lie was requeued to
make any objections he might have to them, and
ho waived all such objections. It is now too late,
and the jury are not the judges of their wn quali
fications. The Court decides that the jury are
Verdict. Wc? the undersigned, jurors in tl'c
case of C. 11. Nicholson rs. John Wiley, give an
our verdict, That, (no evidence having been pro
duced by the defendant of the incorrectness of tho
account rendered by the plaintiff vs. him, and the
jury having no evidence or proof in their possession
to doubt its being duo to the plaintiff to enable
them to offset it,) the defendant, John Wiley, do
