The natives had previously heard .Hie
missionaries preach in the meeting house
which had -been built. -'At this 'periool
Mr. Bins:hstm ' iirged. LiholUip- to desist
from drinking. but he would hot consent.
He labored to persuade him to" bpcomo
a Christain, but in vain, for the king and
his men were intemperate. He .perse ve'r-
0i in hifc hrnnvrlnnt nfTorts to reform him. t
but without success ; the .king', prorai'singiof this matter in their -own. land,- but'

only that at the expiration of five .ydars
he would become rctormed.
In the third year of Liholiho's reign,
January 7, 1822, the. Hawaiian Pi-a-pa,
or spelling book, wa printed, which con
tained also small portions of the! Script
turcs. The natives studied this first-book;
Liholiho gave some attention to letters
and the acquisition of religious truth. On
leaving for England, he requested 'his
people to attend to instruction until he
should return. Previous to. his departure
the first reinforcement of 'the mission had
arrived. After he left,V the 'people, were
more attentive to books, and a few of the,
chiefs and people, had "faith in "God- as
a grain of mustard seed," and tliey-"began
to call on the name of the Lord'' ' For
the instructions of Mossra. Bingham and
Thurston were now intelligible. ; and they
were assisted in their work by Mr, - EHfis;
an English missionary, who came from
. the Society Islands hither, April 15, 1822.'
J He was accompanied by liatiye assistants
from the Society Islands, Trpm this time
lto the death of rKaumualii the. number
! learning to read was greatly increased.
! So also nrevioiis to the war on Kauai with
George Kaumualii; the' number was much
augmented of those who embraced Chris
tianity, and prayed to God. For : the

The speaker was a tall thin man, with
venerable white, hair, and a striking and
noble countenance, , He i was standing by
a.small tabl6 of ebbrry coVered with cards,
which hboccasionally shuffled while his
eyes were? fixed with a stern andmelancho
ly expression upon a velvet cap which lay
at his feet. He ' Vas dressed in the rich
gad of. tho times, but the gold on ' his
cmbroidprcd suit , was : ta'niishcd and the
velvet rusty with vage., There waf?. alto
gether an air 'of neglect, almost, amount
ing to poverty,! about tins old man,
strangely; at variance' with the massive
gold chain which .encircled his throat.
He seemed to. be almost in a state of
stupor, though now and then ' theYnamo
"Wolf," "Wolf," trembled upon his pale
and quivering lips. ,
"Catharine," said queen, Isabella bitter
ly, "that too is worse than death; Farewell, .
beloved one,' farewell ; virtuous or guilty, it

Farewell then to thpe, the only being I

my idolized child, promise me never to

As she spoke she clasped her daughter
