the Kinir'H voiej as above htated. The tone was
! one of excitement, and on going t J see the cause,
; he observed the King with a s-ix-f hooter, aiming
at the Hawaiian sailors. At that instant the
pistol was di.-charg. d, the ball going over the
missionary's bhoulder and striking one of the
sailors in the l ack of the head, coming out in
front. He fell at once, without uttering a word,
having been killed lnstaiitaneoiiMy. lho Kinjr,

who was endeavoring to escape to the boat, was
pursued nnd killed by a half-brother of the
King, named Teicntowa. Kanoa, w ho is a very
intelligent Hawaiian, sttw all throe of thee mur-d'-rs.
and dct-ITes that Jio rovocation whatever
had been given by the sailors-, or by any one eon-

! after having given the mis-sionaries iermi.-sion to
live on the Inland, open a school, and teach the
people, had, after the lapse of three months, be
come dissipated, drinking heavily, and discon
tinued attending the meeting- or visiting the
missionaries. No violence was offered t-) the
latter, but they were advised by the King's
1 brother, to leave the Island, ns the "alii" was
j in a state of frenzy from drink. At the same
j time, he told the missionaries that he would re
turn to their houses and protect their property.
(Jetting on board a s.all vessel belonging to the
! Island, they were next day transferred to the
! Pftil, and landed on Ebon.
j 'Ihe master of the PJ'til was desirous of in-

l-'oj.i.owiN.i Cory. Among printers there is an
old saying Follow copy, even if it goes nut of
the window." Nevertheless, the compositor is ex
peetcd to use common sense in following copy.
A funny instance of neglecting to use this valuable
quality occurred in the Knih vi last week. The
writer of an article, wishing to have the heading
put in large letters, wrote on the margin the words
"hua nui.v and then, to make sure, added the
English abbreviation "caps." Oddly enough, the
compositor set up these words, the blunder was
not observed, and the article was printed com
mencing "Una nui Caps." and went on with the
subject, leaving the native reader's miud quite
muddled as to what the writer was driving at.

Ksinox ami C"oii ii. Letters fr."m Paris state
that a great cbsug. will soon be made in gentle
men's costume, and that the ugiy stovepipe hat
will be discarded. A writer commenting on the
rej-oit. says : " The hatter who shall first bting out
a decent and really comfortable head-covering w ill
make his fortune. The soft hat is not dressy."
and the stove-pipe" is an abomination."" Of the
ladies dresses, it is said that " the beautiful Turkish
costume will soon be the fashion, as it has already
been adopted in Varis. and is likely to beci.me the
favorite style." Now it strikes us that Parisians
instead of going to Turkey, had belter come to
Hawaii, adopt the native hoU'k-a, and bring il
into fashion, as they actually have taken the Utile
stubbed hat of the old Haw aiian women, (which
has been their style for 20 years.) and made it

cm Mis." is an obi saying and a true one. The
same sun that clothed the mountains, the valleys
the sea and distant islands in such radiant light in
the happy time of spring."' shines still above us
and showers dow n his golden raj s ; but it is no
more upon "the young heart of spring." Time
has blanched and withered, and put its sombre
mantle of gray over the once so radiant face of na
ture. So in life's '-happy time of spring,' the
sleeping infant in its cot smiles its brightest, most
peaceful and purest smile, while the mother dreams
that guardian angels are whispering to her babe.
Never again in life that smile returns upon the hu
man face. Neither joy nor pleasure, neither hopes
fulfilled nor ambition satisfied, cau recall the radi
ant purity of the infant's smile. Time blanches,
w ithers and puts its dust of earth upon all alike.
Plow chilly winds, drop sere and yellow leaves,
vwther grass and flower, another '-happy time of
spring" is nigh. P.right eyes grow dim. wither
cheeks, sprinkle, frost, wintry snows upon hoary
heads, another spring is nigh, and when (but ah
how seldom) upon the silent bier, and only then,
that same pure and peaceful smile of the "young
heart of spring " returns, then spring has conic in
deed ; a spring that never lades.
And so in this last month of the year murky skies

sportive whirlwinds take up dense clouds of dust
and rush like mad imps over roads and fences, and
cart around corners throwing their big handfuls of
dust into out of the way places, chasing modest
maidens and sedate woman, scaring docile horses
and playing all sorts of w ild pranks. The wind
for whole days follows " my policy " by "swinging
round the circle."' blowing from east and west, and
