(:he tmy craii, more iikc a sea-bird, than a
Lork of man impatient ol its contents, its
Lvt'lling canvass filled by a favorable gale.
Horses are mounted, and the excited ex
pectants ride en masse to the beach. How
long the minutes are how slowly they
work! the boat is at last lowered, and Cap-
ftain Spankerboom steps ashore with all the
importance of nn ambassador extraordinary,
?;iiid delivers the packet. Now a revulsion
Vf feeling takes place. Expectation is suc
ceeded by possession possession , mouses
Inflection, and reflection irives oluee to lionp

nd fears. A mother, father, sister, broth
er, wife, child, to be heard from are they

greyed upon others in the mean while, why
jbhould they have been exempted? Has ho
liness prospered, or will this crush all those
Icar earned hopes. Each palpitating heart
Confines its queries to its own recesses, and
trembling fingers slowly unseal the dreaded
et welcome intelligence. A long drawn
ireath, and in silence each devours the pre-
ious contents and here 1 leave them this
a common experience to exiles, and all can
ppreciate its truth. After a storm comes
lunshine, and after letters come boxes oil
v the covers, and the contents are tumbled
ut with an eagerness of curiosity, that un-
Jcild treasures could not have drawn forth.
Hie box is from home the contents from
inrth's dearest relations. Each article.
ough thousands similar lie unnoticed on
ke shelves of many a shop, is praised, crit-
ised, and praised again, and a blessing
eathed for the bestower. That one word,
me, the centre of all that constitutes happi
ness in our mother-land, is the spell that thus
' elts the spirit, and revives long dormant
1 jfections. Thus it is here. Joy is dearly
1 xught and dearly prized. Apart from the
iorld, though in a paradise of natural heau
3 T, the foreign inhabitants form u communi-
sui generis. A Protocol of the allied
ewers of Europe brings no tears to them;
ihether Metternich regulates his vineyards,
rules empires, it matters not. The Grand
orte may' perish despite his sublimity, and
e Celestial Potentate get knocked on the
ate by an English marine; still, grass will
ow, water will run, and none the less su-
r be mode in Koloa. Its denizens will
tire to rest at eight o'clock P. JM. and rise
fore the sun. Mot but whnt there are ex
iting topics here, for there are enough of
em. The whole wisdom of the place is
lied upon to devise measures for repairing
bridge, or counteracting a'sudden strike for
gher wages on the part of the tawny labor-'
s. If any man wants occupation, and plen-
of it, let him undertakc( the surveillance
a dozen Kauaians Old Hays himself
ould be mystified. The kanakas 6heat andf
use their employers, and their rulers do
cir best to cheat both white and copper
ins. The old lady who now holds the
ins of government, keeps a shrewd eye to
e personal profits. According to custom,
hen His Majesty was to visit this island,
w houses must be erected for him and
ite. Amelia selected a sue, very conven-
nt to her own lands, but by no means so
ir the numose of the King. His men were
liged to build them; after the arrival, they
A. doubtless anticipated, did not suit him,
Id he slept elsewhere. As soon as he was
&ne, the wily governess appropriated them
her own use, and thus secured two good
ses at no expense to herself. It would
"wever be unfair to judge of all the rulers
f the nation by the specimens on this island,
despite all their cratt in perverting me
, a very general improvement has taken
ce. The taxes are exceedingly onerous,
Nunting to a quarter or more than a labor-
) can earn, should he have employment the
lole year. -t
The roads about Koloa are excellent, and
taJ oyer the island generally; the result
I . i i i
oi me moors ot those who from neglecting
to amend their own ways, are obliged to
mend the w ays for others. If all cum. con.
cases' were treated with tho same fare in
more civilized lands, we should hear less of
them in public-at least the male delinquents
would find it rather an unpleasant method of
Joolmp the damages.
I have often been amused nt the remarks
of strangers upon the bingulur vehicles, those
little fuur wheeled wheel harrows, in which
the fair dames of Hoik. lulu, cause them
selves to be transported about the dusty
streets. They have become now so numer
ous as to make quite a turn-out, when any
occasion calls them forth, with their biped
steeds, tugging before and pushing behind,
and no little ingenuity is now required in or
namenting their graceless sides. One even
has condescended to visit this place, and has
fairly driven the handcart in which 1 took
my fust ride here with. a lady, out of use.
'1 he handcart is now metamorphosed from a
lady's carriage to a carrier , of wood and
stone, while its lazy rival stands the livelong
day, like a pampered coach horse, under a
shed, awaiting its mistress's orders.
Experience is a stern master, and a some
what expensive one, as those who wound
their hoprs up in silk-worm cocoons, found
to their sorrow. Could the result have been
foreseen, the importing ot Moms Multicau
lis would have proved quite as ridiculous, as
the planting of Pearl Sago, by a former plan
ter here, who not realizing his crop (juitc as
soon as he anticipated, wisely concluded to
plant sugar cane in its stead. Fortunately for
bis purpose he had not roofs to root up, as is
the case with those who are now substituting
cane for the mulberry.
