On the whole it is but justice to say
that Mr. and Mrs. Cooke are worthy of
the confidence reposed in them by the
king and chiefs of the Sandwich Islands.
The station which they occupy is one of
great responsibility and difficulty, and they
thankfully appreciate the sympathy and

submit their plans of instruction to
any who will favor them with a visit.
It is confidently expected that enlight

ratio may we expect the increase of
liberal views, on the subject of govern
ment, and a disposition to regard the
rights of all classes of the community.
The chiefs now on the stage of active
life feel and acknowledge their defi
ciency arising from a want of early
training. They are therefore solici
tous that their sons and daughters
should be trained from their childhood.
To secure this object.thcy have made
laudable efforts, and they seem dispos
ed to persevere. Why should they
not be commended ?

For what is the noble and dear old frigate
reserved? I went upon .deck; a gentle
breeze was swelling our canvass from our
mainsail to our royal; the isles of Scilly had
sunk in the eastern waters, and the clouds
of tho dying storm were rolling in broken
masses to the northward and westward, like
the living columns of a beaten army.

storm for a space of time that seemed, to
my imagination, almost an age.
It was a trying hour with us. Unless we
could carry sail so as to go at the rate of
nine knots an hour, we must of necessity
dash upon Scilly; and who ever touched
those rocks, ami lived, during a storm? The

with the sweetness of May around mc,
on a week day, I have thought of the
millions of immortal creatures, toiling for
their daily life in factories and shops, amid
the whirl of machinery, and the greedy
carving of mercantile gain ; and, suddenly,
that golden interval of tunc has lam be

a perpetually recurring time, in which the
iron grasp of earthly tyranny is loosed

healthful freedom, on the one hand, a yd
coop man up in his work-day dungeons,
and cause him to walk with downcast eyes

desecrate all its sober .decorum on the
other. God, and the sound heart and
sterling sense of Englishmen, preserve it
from both these evils ! Let us still avoid
Puritan rigidity siml French dissipation.
Let our children, and our servants, and
those who toil for us in vaults, and shops,
and factories, between the intervals of
solemn worship, have freedom to walk in
the face of heaven and the beauty of earth,
for, in the great temple of .Nature, stand
together Health and Piety. For myself
I speak from experience, it has always

The lufl's were soon put upon the weather

them depended the masts, and upon the
masts depended tho safety of the ship; for

therefore slackened at every strain, and her
unwieldy masts (for she had those designed
for the frigate Cumberland, a much larger
ship,) seemed ready to jump out of her.
And now while all was apprehension, another
bolt 'drew! and then another! until at
last our whole stay was placed upon a single
bolt less than a man's wrist in circumfer
