T t rough the politeness of Iloa. E. Perrio. IL L
M. Commis-ioner nt these island-, we have received a
copy of the Tahitiaa Almanac, Register and Directory
for 185'J. It is very creditably got up aui contains a
great deal of useful knowledge.
We learn that the French poS9;ons in the Pacifio
are divided in two grand divisions. East and West
Oceania. The former including the islands of Tahiti,
Morea, Toubouai, Meetia, Feti iroa, the Marquesas is
lands and the Tuatnotous group. The latter division
embraces New Caledonia, the Loyalty Islea and Kana
la nnd Bilade.
The present Governor over the French possess
ions, both E.wt and West, ia Mr. Suisset, Flag Officer
of the 1st class.
Her M ijesty Pomare Vahine was born in 1S13. Of
her family the Register speaks :
Tu, looked upon as the head of the Pomare f imily
was chief oT Pap.ioa, a district in the North of Tahiti.
His son was Vairaatoa who commenced the conquest
of Tahiti, Moorea and the other leeward islands. He
took the name of Pomare 1-t and after various vicis
situdes of fortune died in 1803.
Tu is considered as the patronymic of the family.
His son who also was culled Tu (commonly Otu)
succeeded under the name of Pomare II. He embraced
Christianity and terminated the conquest of Tahiti and
Moorea by the victory of Feipi, won in 1815 by Terii
taria, queen of Huahine and aister of his wifeTeremoe
moe. Teremoemoe was sister of Tamatoi, King of F.aia
tea, of a very ancient fami'y descending from Ferorohi.
By the marriage of Pomare II. and Teremoemoe
were borne Aimat a, the present Queen of Tahiti, anJ
a younger brother who reigned in 1824 after the death
of Pomare II under the name of Pomare III, and who
died in 1829 aged 11 years. His elder Bister Aimata
succeeded him from this year under the name of Pomare
Queen Pomare is then ia possession of sovereignty
since 1P29. She married in 1822Tapoa, King of Bola
bola, descendant of the Kings and famous warriors of
that name. This marriage was dissolved in 1S21, and
Qun Pomare married, as her second husband, her
cousin Ariifaaite, son of another s iter of Tamaton,
called Taave or Ttihotu. By this marriage Queen
Pomare has had six son9 and one daughter which,
either by adoption or by alliance with the Kings of
Borabora, Itaiatea and Huahine, will one day divide
the sovereignty of these islands.
Her eldest son Ariiaue died in ISoC, and the future
sovereignty of Tahiti, with the name of Ariiaue, has
pissed to Teriitaria, adopted son of the Queen of Hua
hine and presumptive heir of the Tahiti in crown.
The sixth son bora in 1852 died aged less than cne
In 1842 Queen Pomare accepted the French Protect
orate in virtue of the following Act of Protectorate :
" PtrEETE, September 9, 1912.
" Because, in the present position of affairs, we cannot con
tinue to govern by ourselves o as to preserve good harmony
witii toreivu govetiiment.-., without expoin ourselves .o tlie
loss of our inlands, our liberty and our authority; we, the
undersigned, Queen and principal biefs of Tahiti, write
these presents to solicit the King of the French to take us un
der hi protection on the following coudi'ions :
1st. The sovereignty ot the Queen, her authority and that
of the principal Ciiiels over their people shall be guaranteed.
Sd. All laws and regulations shall be made iu the name of
Queen Pomare and signed by her.
3d. The possession of the U'. ten's lands and those of the

exist, and the English missionaries shall continue their offi
ces without heing mole-ted; an. I the mine in regard to every
other worship : no one can be molested or contained in his
On these conditions Queen Pomare and her g eat chiefs will
seek tt e protec;ion of the King of the French, leaving in his
hands, or tu ihe rare of the French (. vtrnmeM. or to some
person named by him and approved of by Queen Pomare, the
direction of all aff.iirs with foreign governments, us well as
everything relating to foreign residents, regulations of the
country, &c, it., ic, and to take such other measures at he
nay judge useiul for the conservation of good harmony and
peace." Signed 1'omabe.
We copy also the following notice of Papeete :
"Tahiti, seat of Ihe Protectorate government, with Papeete
as its principal port. There are two channels in the r. ef
which fringes tha port, one called the pa of Taonoa, and
the other the pass of Papeete. Ihe pilots of Tannoa and Pa

Lectureof the Rev. E. H. Ciupin Social
The lecturer opened his discourse before two so
cieties of young nipn at the Cooper Institute with
ft picture of an Alj ine glacier, and the fact estab
lished" by science of its slow but sure motion, as
undoubted as that of the ne at its foot. So there
were vital forces by which eociety wns moved.
Scientifically speaking, there was but one force
the juiwer of mind lor physical matter was but a
phase of intelligence. These forces may be divided,
however, into Mechanical, Intellectual and Moral.
There is large scpe under the first for the agencies
of external nature represented by physical geogra
phy. IIt?nce, India, superstitious, Greece, rational,
the mind of Egypt, no less than her fertility, the
gilt of the Nile, and the characteristics of England
and of our own country, not the less affected by
physical position and circumstances. Machinery
represents another class of influences. Man,"
says John Stuart Mill, only puts things in their
right position." Machinery was itself a positive
power, and like all great agencies, its end must be
beneficial. There are people who look upon it
with distrust, liko the English coachman, who,
when he saw the first railway, thought it was all
over with Great P.riuin, and saw nothing but a
land converted into a gridiron and covered with
teakettles. But being an ally of great Nature, it
must, as the ocean does, serve the whole. Nature
is democratic, and always votes the people's ticket.
By the various mechanical forces, external nature
raised to a higher power, the Man of the Nine
teenth Century is a condensed Methuselah. " No
empire, sect or star," said Bacon, had influenced
the world like gunpowder, the mariner's compass
and the printins pres9, each of which was boldly
and happily illustrated or personified by the lec
turer. There were three stages of intellectual develop
ment, in Apprehension, Diffusion, and Adoption.
Intellectual movement was but an apprehending of
one integral universal truth, which existed from
the beginning. Every bar of iron had, in a sense,
been hammered on the anvil of Tubal Cain. The
play of Hnmlet was but a permutation of the al

De TocquvilIe's remarkable book on France be

this Public Conviction which tyrants had to dread,
and they knew it. Not long since Louis Napo
leon said, in one of his spiitches, that he was the
enemy of all abstractions and well he may be.
Conviction is a different thing from opinion, which
had been called knowledge in the making : if so,
there was often a great deal of ready-made error
mixed up with it. Common sense was wanted,
which hud been defined, by some plain man, " hit
ting it about right the first time." Respectable
men had been the bullies of society. The best of
men were liable to persecution, but their asseta
proved equal to their liabilities. There were old
politicians fossilized clear through from their back
bone to their conscience. There was hope from
conflict. A monolithic independence was to be
admired. St. Paul's charity was first pure, then

many, but a living power. It was the quickening

and society wa9 to individualize pursuit. The
best history is that which has most biographies.
This diversity of abilities was the life and evi

The moral power lay behind all. VTe cannot
prove this progress, for we have not the facts. The
influences which move us do not touch other na

know of the universe? But we feel by an instinct

The Almighty Dollar.
There was a good story told the otljer day, in
the correspondence of one of our daily journals,,
by a gentleman who was present, sitting alongside
of "a railway man," at the delivery of Mr. Ev
erett's Washington Address at Binghamton. The
admission h-e was fifty cents. When tha address
was brought triumphantly to its close, his neigh
bor turned from his rapt attention to the narrator,
and with serious emphasis remarked, 44 This ought
to have been a dollar ! " The railway representa
tive was right. He was appealing to the highest
test and sanction of emotion. When a crowd was
collected around a broken-limbed beggar in the
street, and was blubbering out its sorrow in various
ebullitions, a sailor stepped lorward and said : " I
am sorry five dollars now much are you sorry ? "
He was a practical man, and it is because Ameri
cans are, in general, excessively practical men that
the " almighty dollar " is so often on their lips.
It is a little singular, by the way, that we should
be indebted fr this phrase to one of the most un
selfish and genial of men. It is said to be found,
tor the first time, in a little tale written some fif
teen years ago by Washington Irving. He was, of
course, writing in a spirit of observation, not of
The dollar, as a coin, is advancing in its con
quests aoout the world. It is some two hundred
years since the word had a good Germanic origin
in Joachim's Thai, a valley of Bohemia, where the
Count Schlick established a reputation for his sil
ver coinage. So that the word has a pleasant ru
ral flavor m its etymology, which it is well to think
of in preference to the more tangible dolor with
which it is so often actually invested. It is near
er universality at this moment than any coin ia
the world. It is peculiarly a South American in
stitution through the great silver producing re
gions it is au object ot especial admiration in the
great eastern world of China. The Commerce of
all nations recognizes it at sight, whether stamped
with the Pillars of Hercules, the Lama of Peru,
the Crown and Globe of Brazil, the five Volcanic
Peaks of Central America, the Mexican Cap of
Liberty, the E.igle of the United States. There is
even a probability of seeing tie head of Victoria
upon it, for we have now before us a hint of that
coming re.-ult in the new ten cent piece of silver
just issued for the Canadas. If a dime, why not a
dollar? This new coinage is already welcomed on
our frontier, and must readily find its way in trade
through our country. It is a very welcome little
medal of her gracious Majesty, whom all the world
is delighted to honor as a lady, where she is not
reverenced as a Queen.
There has been a great deal of unnecessary and
illogical abuse of this " Almighty Dollar." It
does not at all follow that because the word is often
on a man's lips that he is a churlish, avaricious
miser, or that he may not be the most generous of
men. It is the word which, of all others, may be
expected to be the oftenest uttered since money
is the great representative idea, including pretty
much all the ideas, of modern civilizition. An
American, save, of necessity, in consequence of his
superior activity of trade and intercourse, does
not talk more of his dollar than an Englishman
of his) pounds or a Frenchman of his Napoleons
though the unaccustomed word may have been
more striking to English ears, thus giving impulse
to the silly complaint which John Bull is always
throwing in our teeth. Who does not need money
and have occasion to think or speak of it every
hour ot his waking day ? Nay, he could not even
bleep without it. The old hoarders, the worship
pers of coin, such as Quintya Mttsys painted in
his famous picture, lived before the days of banks.
Now, a very rich man may pass through life with
out handling altogether a bag full of the precious
metal. Ue escapes, at least, the consuming yellow
fever from contagious gold. The possession of
money is no longer, except in occasional melancho
ly cases, idolatry of coin : it is wealth, the op
portunity, use, and enjoyment of everything which
can lengthen lite, diminish its pains or increase
its pleasures, cultivate its intellect or its morality.
In itself. Dr. Lieher tells us that money is nei
ther good nor bad, and that it is bat a vulgar pre
judice to associate it so exclusively in the common
idea with meanness, insolence and avarice. It is
in s certain sense an end, it is in a far greater and
better sense a means to an end. It is after all
but a step on the road to fortune, for, after a man
has acquired money, his felicity depends altogeth
er upon what he shall make up his mind to do wita
it. We must admit, however, the general misun
derstanding of the text of an apostle, altering his
saying, that the love of money is the root of evil,
to' the assertion that the money itself is the root.
This unphilosophical estimate of a calm iinpassion
ate scientific object is not very complimentary to
human nature. It shows that the thing is oftener
abused to improper indulgence, pride and oppres
sion, than it is employed for the individual or pub
lic welfare, or that the tendency to this unhappy
condition of affairs is so great as to require con
tinual suspicion of the good conduct of money and
protest against its misetnployment. Man may be
defined as a protesting animal. Grumbling goes
before him as the herald of bis virtuous achieve
