lC3r.ti1.utJ from our previous iisue.
We are given to understand, on page SI, that
there was less cf the fearful practice of polyandry
and the corruption cf girls in the heathen than is the
Christian days of this people." A9 for the evidence
cn thl9 subject procured by Mr. Wyllie from a ven
erable native of Kaaal, in 1SG3, it would be prepos
terous to allow it to outweigh the concurrent testi
mony cf both the natives and foreigners who were
on the Islands in 1820. The?e have always testi
fied, with hardly an exception, that both polygamy
and polyandry were very common, and that licen
tiousness was universal &ud unblushing, in open
day. Facts are related by eye-witnesses in proof of
this, which will not bear description here. It is
probably true that under the ancient tabu system
there were some slight restrictions on this vice.
TLere is some truth in the statement that young girls
were guarded until they had arrived at the age cf
puberty, but for what purpose they were reserved
the Bishop can ascertain from the old natives. And
it must le remembered that even these barriers had
been ewept away before the arrival of the first mis
sionaries. Let the candid inquirer obtain from any
intelligent old native an accouat of the favorite na
tional games called ume and kilu, of their customs
relating to hospitality, to friendship and courtship,
let him study their ancient Kuaos ; and then judge
whether any chastity could exist in such a state cf
society. In fact, instead of being considered a virtue
at all, it Mas regarded as something niggardly and
unsociable, a teutiiueut nbicli the missionaries found
it extremely diflioult to eradicate from the tuinds cf
I am free to a linit that there wete grave defects
i in the laws firtt enacted to repress this vice, and I
rejoice that they have since been amended. It would
have been strange if the Grst attempts cf a barbarous
people to frame a criminal code h id not been imper
fect. And yet, with all its faults, their firtit printed
code was more humane and liberal than the Criminal
Law 01 Liiglaud was until reformed by the cilorts of
is'ir Samuel Iloimlly and Sir Robert Peel. I will only
mention that by the Euglish laws, fifty years ago,
there were nearly three hundred effeuces punishable
with death. And yet these Draconian laws were
sanctioned "by men of liberal education." The
gy3tem cf legisltitiou adopted here was substantially
the same as that adopted in most of the groups cf
Southern Polynesia. Nor is it true that theso laws
are considered unjust aud cruel by the people. Ou
the contrary, they will tell you that though such
J J J n
laws tuuy uul be suited to enlightened countries,
7 "e necessary for them. To make such crimes
Tuiii)lin.lile m erc-1 v Lv a civil suit for damaees. as has
)tr j -beeu
suggested, would have been perfectly absurd, in
j legislating for a people in the social condition of the
Hawatians. It was mcessary that such deeds should
! be braudeJ by the law as crimes. But, even on the
i fahe supposition that the missionaries framed these
! laws, if their moral eCect has been neutralized by
the example of foreigners and of Government officials
appointed to execute them, I do not see how the mis
sionaries are to be held responsible. As for infanti
cide, according to Mr. Ellis and others, who were
here in 1820, nearly two thirds of the children were
buried alive cr destroyed iu other way9. At present
that crime is probably less frequent f;ere than in
We are told that belief in the old heathen gods is
the rule rather than the exception. While denying,
emphatically, the truth of this statement, 1 would
not underrate the superstitions which are still linger
ing among the natives. It would be contrary to all
historical precedents if such did not exist. When
the races of Northern Europe embraced Christianity,
their ancient religious ideas survived for centuries,
and some of them to the present time. As Mr. Lo
gan says, in his "Ethnology of Eastern Asia,"
Observances are more easily abandoned than idea3,
and even when all the external forma of the alien
faith have been put on, and few vestiges of the in
! digenous one remain, the latter still retains its vi
tality iu the mind, and powerfully colors or corrupts
the former." The writings of Sir Walter Scott aud
' of Hugh Miller show how true this was even of the
' Scotch people a cei.tary ago. The remaining super
stitions of the Hawaiians are chiefly connected with
' the practices of the native doctors and the belief in
witchcraft, which latter is very similar to the dread
: ful superstition cf the "evil eye," so prevalent among
tv.o Italian rjcasantrv. The modern delusion of
" - s w
! Spiritualism," so-called, is closely akin toit.be
i iug founded on tho same fundamental principles of
I human nature, aud yet prevails extensively in tne
! most enlightened countries. If there has been any
thing of a reaction here of lite years towards the
ancient superstitions, it has beeu promoted by tho
system cf licensing the kahunas t or surcerers, and
by the encouragement given to the hulahula, which
is simply a part of their anoient idolatrous system
We need not dwell on facts which are already so well
understood by the public.
If I am not mistaken, the American missionaries
would rather glory iu the simplicity of their mode of
wojshipthan deny it. They believe it to be both
scrintural, aud conformed to the practice of the
primitive Christians. The system of Divine worship
described by Justin "Martyr, in the middle of the
second century, seems to me quite as simple and un
imr,.,sin(? as the " exercises" in Hawaiian Churches.
Although Mr. Dana's description was rather over
drawn, yet his criticisms were in a measure just, and
were made in euch a spirit as to give no offence,
which cannot be said of the Bishop's remarks on the
subject. It might bo expected that a half-civiliied
people like the Hawaiians would be deficient in some
.. - 1 - All
of the external proprieties ot puotic worsnip. jyu
that can be looked for is a gradual improvement in
this respect. The statement that " kneeling is dis
couraged as Popish" will provoke a smile from those
at whom it is aimed. I am not aware cf acy preju
Afe existing acainst it. and if that altitude is not
preferred to standing in prayer, it is for otbr and
obvious reasons. The assertion that " the principles
of tectotalism held by the missionaries have led them
to discard the use of wine in the Lord's Supper," is
a gross misstatement, as any one can easily ascertain
for himself. The plain dress of 9omc of the mission-
aries seems to have given great offence, and Mr.
Hopkins mind seems to be haunted by the idea of
their " alpacca coats." Now, does he cr the Bishop
... th Paul and Barnabas carried a set of
PUJ'J'V-a. - -
canonicals" with them cn their journey to Lystra
and Derbe? To come nearer home, I learn that even
Bishop Selwvn, of New Zealand, has the common
sense to dispense with tuch paraphernalia when on
his tours in the interior cf that inland.
Another calumny which I am obliged to notice is
that at the neek-day religious meetings, " politics,
the American war, the prices of cattle, 4c, are die
cussed " No doubt the great events of the day are
sometimes referred to, as tbey are elsewhere, and
even in the " Cathedral" itself ; and, at the monthly
concert for prayer, the latest mission&ry intelligence
is eiven and commented upon. The dramatic enter.
tainments which cur author says are given in the
meeting houses," are simply the common school
exannnatLDS and exhibition;, wlf.ch, Lr want cf
any other Ct building, are generally held in the
church. The more ignorant teachers in the back
woods districts are no doubt joinetitiies wanting in
good taste in getting up these exhibitions. One cf
the manager, if not the principal manager, of the
exhibition to which he refers as having taken place
in the "Stone Church," was one of the illustrious
personages mentioned cn page 64.
His Lordship Eaeers at the native churches, as
' oblong buildings, fitted up with benches, opposite
to which is a large unsightly stage," Jto. It is true
that the churches, with the exception cf a few lately
built, are extremely plain, but they nevertheless do
great honor to the people who built them. They are
.... .. nil
monuments of tod ana liberality, unparaueiea.
Built, as ihey were, in the deep poverty of the peo-
pie, without the aid of skilled mechauics, and with- j
out many of the appliances of the present day, they
show what difficulties may be overcome by indomita
ble perseverance, and devotion in a sacred cause.
Most of the misstatements noticed above may be
rardoned. as the Catholics eay. on the ground cf
44 invincible ignorance." Cut the manner in which J
Le sreaks of the great revival of 18C3 cannot be j
passed over so lightly. There were ample materials j
at hand to enable him to form a correct idea of the j
origin and character of that revival. The sneering 1
tone iu which he speaks of ho manifest a work of the
Holy Spirit, will damage him more in the estimation
of the Christian public than anything else which he
has written. Ihe Idea that Mr. Richards appoint
ment as 44 constitutional adviser" to the crown gave
any additional Influence to the missionaries in gen
eral is absurd enongh, but the theory that it had
any connection with the revival is unworthy of a
eane man. The very fact that io preposterous an
idea could be gravely entertained by him, seems to
indicate a total misconception cf the nature of spirit
ual religion. For there has rarely been a revival so
deep, so genuine, or so well confirmed by the test of
Vt. B . , ,. . ' n -f,
experience. Itsttlects are still felt, eeu now, after
the lapse of twenty-seven years. It began first in
the hearts of the missionaries themselves, in 1S2C,
and prompted them to ibsue that eloquent and eingu.
larly earnest Appeal to Christians at home. The
facts connected with the revival itself canuot fairly
be accounted for without supposing a supernatural
influence, so that ev-n opposcrs have been compelled
to fay, us did the Egyptian sorcerers, 44 Th'i9 is the
finger of God." The fact that but few had been ad
mitted to the Church previous to that time was not
owiDg to any want of applicants for admission, but to
the fuct that the pastors required sattsiactory evi
dence of a change of heart and life before admitting
any one to the communiou. It may be the practice
of the Church of England to receive men into her
communion in order that they may be converted af
terwards, but it is nut so with the l'roteetant
Churches here. The seventh chapter of Dibble's
History gives some idea of the innumerable decep
tions that were practiced in order to win the good
opinion of the missionaries and gain admission to the
Church. If tbpy had yielded to tne pressure nrougnt
to bear upon them, they might easily have had the
mass of the population as nominal Church members.
To be continued. 1
THREE DAYS LATER
By the bark Comet, of the Regular Dispatch Line,
which arrived on the 21st, 17 days from San Fran
cisco, we have three days later news from tho East.
The telegraphic news is to the 30th April.
The principal items are Johnston's second sur
render; Morgan's surrender; the whereabouts or
tha Stonewall, and European items.
President Lincoln's Obsequies.
Cleveland. April 28. All along the route from
Buffalo to this city, which we reached this morning,
the usual demonstrations of sorrow were witnessed.
President Lincoln's remains were escorted by a
large military and civic procession to a beautifully
nnstrriitl temnle. rreDared to receive them, and
soon thereafter the face of the honored dead was
open to thousands of spectators, who, in admirable
order, entered and retired from the enclosure. The
entire population of the city are all seemingly im
pressed with tne solemnity ot tne occasion.
Columbus, Ohio, April 29. Notwithstanding the
inclement state of the weather, crowds ot citizens
assembled at the depot in Cleaveland to take a last
look at the cofSa containing the remains of the late
President. At half-past 7 o'clock this morning we
reached Columbus, where an immense assembly
received us. Here the Committee of Arrangements
took charge of affairs, and between the lines of the
military ai d citizens the coffin was slowly carried to
the hearse, which was similar to those used in other
cities, flowers, contriouiea at piaces uioug iue
line, still lie on the coffin. The procession formed
with the 88th Ohio Regiment acting as the Escort,
and the Veteran Reserve Corps aa the Guard of
Spring field."? Hi nois, April 28. The time fixed for
the funeial of the late President is changed from
Saturday, the sixth, to Thursday, May fourth.
Day of Humiliation.
Chicago, April 29. In deference to the feeling of
mtnv Christians relative to Ascension Day, President
Johnson has issued a proclamation appointing June
the first as a day of humiliation and prayer, instead
of May 2oth.
Nfw York. April 29. A Washington correspon
dent savs that it was not generally believed that John
ston or any other leading rebels expected the federal
Government to accede to their propositions, unless
greatly modified. One evidence is, that prominent
civilians who accompanied the army, or were in its
immediate vicinity at the first conference, suddenly
disappeared soon "after. Another evidence is that
on learning that our Government had refused to
entertain such overtures, Johnston needed no further
time for reflection or for conference with the military
authorities. At 6 o'clock in the morning of April
2oth, Gen. Sherman notified Johnston that the terms
were not accepted, and that the truce would end in
48 hours. Later in the day he eent another flag,
demanding a surrender on the same terms accorded
to Lee. Johnston replied on the 25th, asking an
interview for modifying the previous agreement
surrendering the army. Sherman declined to dis
cuss the subject on the old agreement, but named a
time and place when he would meet him. They
accordingly met near Dunham's Station, 27 miles
from Raleigh, on the 26th. Johnston was out-spoken
and frank in arranging an agreement (or a capitula
tion. A few minutes conversation settled the pre
liminaries and terms. These were soon reduced
to writing and signed, and are the same as extended
to Lee, although not expresed in precisely the same
language. The negotiations were conducted in
Sherman's name. Johnston had no intimation of
the Lieutenant-General's presence, at Raleigh, when
Grant quietly put his approval on the back of them.
During the interview between Sherman and John
ston the latter uniformly declared that the war was
over; that to continue it a moment longer would not
only be wrong, but criminal; and that when the
Southern people learned that his army and Lee's
had surrendered there would be none to counsel
longer continuance of the contest. He stated openly
that his troops should fijht no longer if he could
obtain reasonably satisfactory terms, aud that he
would disb9ti 1 and send them home.
The armies were nearly sixty mailt apirt at the
time when the capitulation was s'gned. Sherman
had moved part cf his army far beyond Raleigh
before the truce was agreed on. After signing the
famous memoranda, these were drawn back to the
latter city, eicept Kilpatrick's cavalry, which pick
eted the line of country 115 miles beyond Kaleigh.
Johnston's troops were well back towards the Green
boro Railroad, which was between the two armies.
It was in running order all the time; and the
opposing Generals proceeded by rail to a point
nearly equally distant, where the interviews were
held. The telegraph was also in workiug order
through Johnston's army, to Selma, Macon, Mont
gomery, and ether Southern cities. Sherman's first
news cf Wilson's success at these places was received
over the wires running through the heart of the
reU?l army. Johnston went so far as to facilitate
the transmission of news to and from Wilson, and
begged Sherman to put an immediate stop to further
iLJ;CUt.4va txt ra u v V 'Uh U a UiMu i i
! devastation of the Southern country
The terms of Sherman's original memoranda, it is
reported, had the approval of his army commanders,
and many able and inSueutial cfCccrs. Geuerals
Blair and Logan were amoug the officers who dissent
ed, and who are reported to have done all in their
power to prevent the conditions of these proposals.
At the time the armistice was agreed to Sherman
had just teceived information of the general satisfac
tion that the terms of Lee's surrender had afforded
to the North. He believed that a greater spirit of
magnanimity prevailed than at any former period.
He had a copy of the Richmond IVkig in which was
a proclamation of Gen. Weitzel. couvening the
rebel Legislature cf Virginia. Everything conspired
to make him extremely lenient.
The same correspondent 6aya that from certain
indications it is probable that Je'J Davis will continue
bis flight iu the South, and endeavor to reach Cuba
in some small vessel or fishing boat, from a point on
the Florida coast. Rumor places a heavy sum to
his bank account iu Havana.
New Yoke, April 120. Newbern advices state
that Johnston attempted to obtain terms from Gen
eral Grant which would provide for the pardon of
Jeff. Davis and other leading conspirators; but the
Heuteu vnt General would listen to nothing cf the
kind, and Johuetou was satisfied with the conditions
graateJ t0 Lte
Nsw York. April 29 The Herald's Washington
.r 'w .k t ;i,fu.t
iu tne Torco surrendered oy jonnsxon is as iokows :
The military division of the West, General Johnston
commanding; the Army of the Tennessee; the Army
of North Carolina. General Bragg; the Army of
South Carolina, Georgia aud Florida, Lieut-Gen.
Hardee; and the Georgia militia, Maj.-Gen. Howell
Cobb. The only remaining rebel army east cf the
Mississippi which has not surrendered is that of
Dick Taylor, which also formed a part of Johnston's
com iu and, but as Jeff Davis is probably making his
way through that district to that army, Johnston
doubtless declined to surrender it until Davis could
get beyond the Mississippi.
The Herald estimates that CC general officers were
surrendered by Johnston, ranking as follows : Full
Generals, 3; Lieutenaut Generals, 5; Major-Generals,
20; Brigadier-Generals. S3.
Surrender of Morgan's Old Command.
Louisville, April SO. 10G officers and 1.000 men
of Morgan's old command surrendered to Gen. Hob
son, at Mount Sterling, to day. 1,200 rebels also
surrendered at other points to Hobson's troop9.
Several hundred deserters from the rebel army took
the amnesty oath. E etern Kentucky is now clear
of rebel troops.
New York, April 30. The Houston, Texas, Tele
graph publishes details of the conference between
Gen. Slaughter, the rebel General, and Gen. Lew
Wallace, iu which the former claims that Wallace
guaranteed, in case of the surrender of the rebel
forces iu Texas, protection to their property, the
vindication of the Monroe Doctrine, and the estab
lishment of a protrectorate over Mexico. A letter
from the rebel Major-Geueral Walker, however,
shows that the terms offered were that they must lay
down their arms, take the oath of allegiance, and
accept the terms of the amnesty pardon or foreign
exile. a9 the United states uovernment wouia ouiy
grant those terms. The rebel General indignantly
rejects them, and claims that, with 800,000 men yet
in the field , the rebels can achieve tneir independence,
New York, April 29. The Herald's Mobile cor
respondence says : Our forces captured 215 heavy
tfune. 10,000 9tand of arras, 80,000 bales of cotton.
besides immense quantities of corn and other grains,
It is also estimated that 20,000 bales of cotton and
75,000 barrels of resin are hidden in the swamps
alnncr the Alabama marsh, which are within reach
of our forces.
Jeff. Davis' Flight.
New Yohk. April 29. Intelligence of the arrival
of Jeff. Davis and accompanying fugitives as far
South as South Carolina has been received in Wash
iugton. It is thought he will be intercepted before
reaching the Mississippi river.
New York. April 29. The latest advices show
thr there is a eood prospect of capturing Jeff
Davis's specie and baggage train, if not himself and
The Herald's Newbern correspondent says the last
nnnitive information of Jeff Davis's movements was
th Vipnasaed throuirh Charlotte on hie way sooth

Further Particulars of the Capture and
Death or Booth.
New York, April 28. The following is the state
ment of Sergeant Boston Corbett, who shot Booth on
Tuesday afternoon : My superior officer, Lieut.
Doherty, received information that two persons an
swering the description of Booth and his accomplice,
Harrold, were concealed in a barn on the place of
Henry Garrett, three miles from Port Royal, m tbo
direction of Bowling Green. Near the latter place
we captured a man named Gelt, who ferried Booth
and his companion across the Potomac. At first he
denied knowing about the matter, but when threat,
ened with death if he did not reveal the spot where
the assassins were secreted, he told us where they
could be found, and piloted ua to the place. Booth
and Harrold reached the barn about dusk on Tues
day evening. The barn was at once surrounded by
cur cavalry. Some of our party then engaged in
conversation with Booth from the outside. He wit
commanded to surrender several times, but mad no
reply to the demand, save 44 If you want me. you
must take me." When first asked to surrender, he
asked, What do you take me for?" and a short
time after, in response to question as to whether
there was anybody else with him in the barn, be
said he was the only person in the building ; that
his companion, Harrold, had taken another direction
and was beyond reach of capture. At three o'clock,
or a little after, the barn was fired. Before the
flames kindled. Booth had the advantage of u in
respect to light. He could see us. but we could not
see him ; but after that the tables were turned against
him we could see him plainly, but could not be
seen by him. The flames appeared to confuse b!m.
and he made a spring towards the dcor, as if to at
tempt to force his way out. As he passed by one of
the crevices in the barn 1 fired at him. 1 aimed al
bis body, as I did not want to kill him. I lock de
liberate aim at the shoulder, but the aim was too
high. The ball struck him in the head, just below
the right ear, and passing through, came out about
an inch above the left ear. I thiuk be stooped tt
pick up something just as 1 fired. That may proba
bly account lor bis rcceivincr the ball in the head.
I was not over eight or teu yards distant from him
when I fired. After he was wounded I wcut into the
barn. He was lying in a reclining position on the
floor. He was then carried out of the burning
building into the open air, where he died in about
two hours and a half afterwards. About an hour
before he breathed his last, be prayed for us to shoot
him through the heart, and thus end his misery.
His sufferings appeared to be intense. Booth, al
though he could have killed several of our party,
seemed afraid to fir. Mine was the only shot firei
on either side. When he fell be had in his hand a
Bix-barreled revolver, and at his feet wa9 lying a
sven-shooter, which he dropped after being wound
ed. Two other revolvers were also near him. lie
declared that the arms belonged to him, and that
Harrold bad nothing to do with the murder, lie
did not talk much after receiving the wound. When
asked if h had anvthine to say. he replied : "l aw
for my country," and asked those standing by to tell
his mother so. He did not deny his crime.

New York, April 29 The Commercial Adver
tiser's Washington special dispatch says that the
surrender of Johnston to Sherman was regarded aa
marking the end of the war. It is not apprehended
that any great difficulty will be encountered in dis
arming the rest of the insurgents. Lieutenant-General
Grant, having virtually closed the war, will
return to Washington and apply himself to the re
duction of the military. Initiatory measures have
already been taken for a large curtailment of ex
penses. The policy to be adopted towards the rebel
in civil life who have not availed themselves of Pr4?!4
ident Lincoln's amnesty, begins to excite attention.
Probably they may soon find it to late too avail tbems
aelves of its provisions.
New York, April 29. The Poif's Washington
epeoial dispatch Bays it is estimated that Secretary
Stanton's order will dismiss from the military service
at least fifty thousand persons.
New York, April SO. Intelligence from the Shen
andoah Valley states that all Lee's paroled soldiers
going home in that direction requested to take the
oath of allegiance. Many of Moseby'a guerrillas
have come into Winchester with the paroled soldiers.
Among them is his second in command, Lieut.-Col.
New York. April 80. The Herald's Newbern
correspondence, of the 27th, says: The lamenta
tion of Sherman's army over the assassination of
President Lincoln was suddenly turned to rejoicing;
by the appearance of Grant. The terms granted to
Johnston embrace the surrender of the four armies
of the Military Division of the West, but excluding
that of Dick Taylor, lying West of the Chattahoochie
River. Among the Generals surrendered is Beaure
gard; the principal among the Lieutenant-Generals
is Hardee. Bragg, lately relieved of command, was
not surrendered. Wade Hampton refused to be sur
rendered, and is reported to have been shot by John
ston, in an altercation; but the most trustworthy re
nnrt in that h fled in comnanv with Davis. The
number actually surrendered is 27,400. although
more names are given. All the militia from South
Carolina, North Carolina. Georgia and the Gulf
States are included.
New York, April 30. The steamer City of Lon

The fall of Richmond monopolized all attention.
The cotton market at the opening was heavy and
irregular, only ld lower; but afterwards it be
came firmer and the loss was partially recovered.
The London Times thinks the loss of Richmond
might itself be perhaps sustained, but could not with
the defeat of Lee. It represents this inevitable catas
trophe as due to Lieut.-Gec. Grant, and that his
abilities should be recognized, ne did " fight it out
on that line," and the reward of fortitude is his at
last. The Times also pays a tribute to Generals
Sheridan and Lee. As regards the fature, it says
that time only can solve the problem. If the South
now prove powerless and desponding, the work of
the North will be easy; but if we have now arrived
at the end, not of the war, but of the first stage of
the political revolution, the real troubles of the North
are just beginning.
The London Star considers the Richmond catas
trophe as the end of the slaveholders' rebellion, but
thinks Davis and Lee may, however, attempt to car
ry on their concern for months longer in the Missis
The Daily Telegraph says it is now beyond hu
man probability that the Confederacy should conquer
itB independence. The fall of Richmond is the catas
trophe of the South. . . ...
The Post says : " Admitting the victories claimed
by the Federals, they must now be about to enter on
the real difficulties of their task."
In the Paris Chamber of Deputies, on the amend
ment to the address proposing aparagaaph on Amer
ican affairs favorable to the North, M. Eugene Pelle
tan made a speech highly eulogistic of the Northern
cause, rejoicing that the pro-slavery rebellion was
crushed by the fall of Richmond. He thought the
American quebtion ought not to be passed over in
silence in a speech from the Throne nor in the ad
dress. M. Pelletan was continually interrupted by
Southern sympathizers in the Chambr, and he was
finally compelled to desist, owing to the noise. The
amendment received twenty-four votes, but was, of
course, like all amendments, rejected. Many prom
inent members abstained from voting. The address
was finally voted entire and presented to the Empe
ror, who returned his thanks in a brief speech.
French official dispatches represent the pacifica
tion of Mexico as complete.

the Southern resistance to the United States Govern
ment is virtually ended.
