An Astronomical Legend.
Translated from the Hawaiian by Iter. A. O. Forbes.
This legend ia a sequel to that of the7acquisi-
i tion of fire, and runs thus : , Maui, iiaving at
last obtained the secret of fire from the - alae,
(mud hen,) returned and told his mother,
And she answered and said, "Where is thyJ
fire? Didst thou think it va8 nothing lor me to
be beating kapa for you all this while? Beating,
am I, and before the beater has once gone : the
width of the kapa, down goes the sun. ...So.it
goes -on till a week is past, and a whole moon is
past before one single kapa can be finished; Then
when it is spread out to dry, down goes the sun
before it has time to dry. So it is .all the time. V
The only way to dry the kJpa will be by the
fire." ' : . . .7 ;V: .
And Maui answered and said, " Better were it
then that I go and cut off the sun's feet, that he
move not so quickly." , .
Art tboi able to do it? " said she.
"I am able." ' V
AVhat are thy weapons with which to .over
come the gun?!' ' ' - ! .
' Why! myrowess, of course ! 'IIow can lie
help himself when am after him? ". ' "
lima assented to his jrrojHjsition, and said,
"Go! and; moreover, here are the' implements
by whoBe aid thou mayest bind thelsun." ',
' ' And she gave him fifteen cords, saying, " These
are not all, Go to tby grandmother for the rest,
and she will instruct thee how to proceed for
she has the care of the sun." ;
' J NOw the name of this grandmother was Wili-wili-puha,
(the hollow wiliwili tree). '
And Ilina further instructed him, " In thy go
ing, when thou' comest to where a large wiliwili
tree is standing, there dwelleth tby grandmother,
and the name of the house where she ; feedetb the
sun is' Ilaleakala." v " ; :;v ;'J i4'w il ' ; ! :
.She also further instructed him thus, "Abide
there until the first cock-crowing, and the second
cock-crowing, and" the third . cock-crowing, then
watch,. for the coming forth of a big old woman.
That is tby grandmother. When thou - seeBt her
kindle a firp and place bananas thereon, do thou
snatch away the bananas. And if site begins to
snuff around on that . side and on this, and to
'Bnoff upward, and inquire,' (4 Whose art thou, 0
mischief?' then answer .thou, 4 Thine.' Arfd if
she shall inquire again, Mine? mine through
whom? say thou, Tliibe through Ilina.' " : ' '
., Ilina "having thus .finished her instructions,
Maui -left bis 'home at Kipahulu, and went to
Kaupo, to the district of Nuu. Thence he com
menced .to ascend the mountain, until lie arrived
at the great wiliwili tree, as directed. lie set
down at the foot of the tree, and waited tin til
.the'first cock-crowing, and the second, and the
third. And thef name of that cock wa Kaao
helemoa. ; At the third cock-crowing, he was on
the watch, and behold the old woman crept forth
to roast the bananas for the sun's repast. Kin
dling the fire, she placed a cluster of bariatias on
it, when Maui slyly snatched them away for him
self. AYben the old woman turned to see how
her bananas wero coming on, behold they were
not. And she exclaimed " V-hwhu f where" can
those, banana 8 be; the bananas of my sun?"
Now the'old woman was blind, and tberefore it
wis that she had not perceived Maui sitting at
the foot of. the tree. She went and got another
cluster of bananas and 'placed them on the fire,
and again tbey . disappeared by Maui's hands.
So on and until soon all the old woman's bananas
were gone ; when 6h6 exclaimed, " This beats nil
mischief!" . Then she snuffed around on this
side and on that, and snuffed upward, and said,
"Whose art tLou. O mischief?" ; ';
" Thine," said Maui. t '.. , -.t' ' ,
i " Mine ! mine through whom ?" ,
Thine through Ilina.' ; ' v;
- Saying which, Maui came forth and sat in the
old woman's, lap. And the old woman said,
" What is the object of tby coming?" ;. : -.
, "I have coise after the sun, to kill him for his
going so rapidly, the kapa which Ilina has made
has not time to dry.' ' ' ... . . .
Then, the old woman gave hi:n a stone and a
cord, which, with the other fifteen cords ' madn
sixteen, and the etone was the seventeenth, oT
. . ' , . 1 . x . ,
tho weapons with which he should conquer the
6Un.- : .. i . :" "" -.
And now the . day was breaking, and the sun
was hungry after his bananas.-- And the ' old
woman instructed .Maui, 44 Station yourself at
the foot of this tree, and 'when the first' ray of
the sun conies up, lasso it with one oF the cords,
and fasten it to the foot of 'the tree. So ou with
the nest,' and the next,' until all the cords arc
.used. . Then use the stone that is for the body
of the sun.'! ' "
'' These instructions ended, Maui dug a hole at
the foot of toe tree, and hid himself therein. In
a little while the sun put forth his first foot.
.Maui lassoed it with the. cord, and made it fast
to the foot of tbe tree. So on with the next, and
the next, until fifteen feet were Bnared. Yet ono
foot remained knocking about below. Patiently
he waited uatil at last the sixteenth Toot also ap
peared, and was lassoed with the remaining cord.
And when the .sun perceived jthat all his feet
were fast, he attempted to go- down again , but
Maui took a turn with the cords around the tree1.
-' - . . j . . ' i . . ; . .-. .. . . . . . . '
and he tound it impossible to go back.. Gradu
ally he rose until his body appeared. Tlien
Maui seized the-stone to knock the life "but of
him." But the sun spake and said, 44 Let ine
live.V. .' ' . .,-.-1 -.('-
M Let you live; forsooth ! You are a traitor,
andj guess you will not live at my hands." .J'jJ
Xy, but . let me live, and I -will agree to
your conditions.' ;' " "
So they entered into a treaty, and it was agreed
that the eun should be allowed to quicken" bis

tbe largest income for that year of any man in tbe

a veritable Croesus in wealth, with comparatively

such men should do. all in their power to oppose
the manufacture: 'of ; sugar, from. anyi product

Wbal Had Ab-Sin in HIn Slcrre I A Csm
If the maker of a nation's pongs is' a great
benefactor, surely the man who disturbs or alters
them assumes a very grave responsibility.
America has several national songs. - " llail
Columbia," " Shoo Fly," Ihe fctar-spangiea
Banner," "John Brown,"" Yankee Doodle,"
nd The jjgatjjen Chinee," constitute hb chief
lyrics of this Republic. They are universally
accepted, recited, quoted, sung, and the people
care very little who make their laws, in compari
son with their concern about the preservation of
The most celebrated and popular of our na
tional songs is "The Heathen Chinee." In that
remarkable lyric, America pours out her ridicule
upon the' narrow" bigotry that would drive the
" pensive' and child-like ' ' Oriental from our
Ehores. It grasps the mighty subject of "Chinese
cheap labor " with a masterful hand, and scoffs
at the " ruin ." that General Thomas and Judge
Kelly profess to dread as the consequence of the
introduction of Ah-Sin and his unsophisticated
fellow-countrymen into the workshops of. the
United States. The " Heathen ' Chinee " . has
become a household god. With sudden bound,
Ah-Sin has . seated himself, " with " his sleeves
which were long," upon the throne of American
popularity, and he grasps in his taper fingers the
scepter of the national poet. Longfellow, Bryant,
Ilopkinson, Key, Drake, Julia Ward Howe,
Whittier and all the rest fall back respectfully,
as the Heathen Chinee comes. across the Sierra
"Nevada, with his '"'ways that are dark and his
tricks that are vain," ana " plays it upon tuat
typical American; William Nye, " in a way wo
despise,''. but-which we can got but "admire
likewise." ... -
'And now, into this song of the times comes an
audacious interpolator. Onerise up and " im
proves " 'upon? the Heathen Chinee. A new
reading of one of the most touching passages id
put forth, and it . remains to be seen whether a
great people will tamely permit its national lyrics
to r be" tampered with. The author of this
" emendation " is known, but we shall not now
expose him. t Ho ia already paying some portion
of the penalty of his rashness, and is shut .up in
his house, partly in.conscqusMico of a fall on the
ice, but principally on account of the febrile
excitement ioliowirg his treatment ot An-oin.
Truthful James sang of Ah-Sin: " "
" In his sleeves, which were long.
There were twenty-four packs."
But this, bold emcridator thus prints the passage
. ' , 't. - . " t - i r
' In his sleeves, which were long,
There were twenty -four jacks
and the worst 6f it is that this gloss has just
enough virtue in it to eo'mmendjt to a considerable
class of American people, and there must ine
vitably spring up a bitter. party division in the
world of song and letteYs, between the Packites
and Jack i tea.; - For there is 'niueh -to say in
defense ""of Jacks. LIkcAh-Siri7 we 'do"4 not
understand, "..euchre but jacks" are certain
cards which exercise such a. controlling influence
over the destines. of, that '. small game." that
there would have been nothing improbable in
the statement that twenty-four of them had been
discovered in the flowing sleeves of the deceased.
Ah 3Hn f Thoughtless Athenians, always desir
4ng to liear-Bome new thing, will plunge int this
new theory, regardless of. history, deaf to the
voice ol that Truthful James who gives us his
pledge -that-be states only fiiets. ' -Ah-Sin
might have . had . twenty-four . 44 jacks ," jn, his
olecvcs, bad be been so minded.. But it muBt be
remembered that Truthful , James was an eye-witnei-s
of the whole scene. Although not a
participant in the. combat between Mr. Nye and
Ah-Sin, he was present and assisted at tlie post
mortem examination, which-revealed the prosciice
of wax on the taper nails of the deceased, lie
was evidently a cairn, dispassionate witness, and
his testimony can not be successfully impeached.
He has- given that testimony, not only -through
the medium of the Octr land !Monthfy but in an
authorized edition of his work, just published
by that most reliable house, Fields, Osgood & Co.,
Boston, and he emphatically declares that
44 The floor It vtaa strewed.
Like the leaves on the strand,
With the cards that Ah-rjin had beeu hiding
. In the game he did not understand." -, . '
Here is the general statement of the very large
how carefully Truthful James collected the
material of the aggregate contents of the sleeves,
so rudely scattered by the oiiflaught of the manly
defender of high American wages j.-
' There were twenty-fopr JIQCkf" n
Truthful James anticipates the doubts of the
incredulous. lie admits that it seems coming
it strong," but he boldly asserts that he states
only facts," and these fancy commentators are
silenced, plausible aa their case. appears at first
eight, by the ofifeial: statement ot" the affair.
He would have ; pleased euchre-players; better,
.had,, lie,- spoken of jacks," but he preferred
103'alty to ni story aoove tlie allurements of lame.
! " ack8 ' would have preserved the unities, but
i " racks " pays honors to the verities. ' Truthful
James may be tampered, with. '.Ho may be
persuaded or bribed to declare that he wrote
44 Jacks." But it will be a base subterfuge and
afterthought,' and Mcsnrs. J." R. Osgord & Co.
