- A Thanksgiving Discourse.
Dtlivtrtd by the Rev If. Yrtrt Faor, intht
. Fort Street Church, Honolulu,; J op. SO, lcvf-
P.alms 147:20. - Hehathoot dealt so with any
and as for His judgments they have not known them, rraise
ye the Lord.n . . .
Though in a foreign kingdom, and on these mid
ocean islands, our heart to-day are in uoison, with
all those dear and loved ones, who, throughout the
broad fAtherland, are offering thanksgiving to the
one Great God of bounty and blessing. Gathered in
the same spirit, cherishing the same memories, bound
in the same old family ties, rejoicing id, and solicit
ous for the same national welfare, we with them,
unite iu the one national Thanksgiving, and praise
God lor His goodness, for His providence, and Ilia
grace to us and to our common couuirjr. vi c ure ,
still part of that great nation. ltd blood is.iu oui1
It love of liberty is in-our hearts. Its i
spirit of progress puahes us on. iu achievement. Its
interests are still our interests. Its prospeiity is our
joy. Its calamities are our sorrow. Ita causes for
Thanksgiving are ours also. Not only has that same
hand r,f hleasinz which has dispensed good to our
native land, let fall its profusion upon us, but ery
many of the blessings that we here enjoy, have
fallen upon us, from that Divine hand extended
out over us, as it were from the borne country.
Ia fact so much of tho civilization and religion,
and public spirit, that prevail here came from
that home country that we almost forget that we are
in foreign parts, and we can thank tur heavenly
Father to-day, for all these island comforts, and priv
ileges and bounties, and homes, almost as if they
were upon our native soiL We do thank Him to-day
for the blessings that He has showered upon us as
individuals, for blessings of life, and health, and
safety, and sustenance and all spiritual good. We
thank. Him for friends and for society. We thank
Him for our homes, and our hopes. We thank Him
fjr the state and the church. We thank Him for the
privileges we enjoy under the government in
this laud of our sojourning. We thank Him for His
word of life and salvation. And though many of us
have experienced heavy losses and severe trials, yet
we thank Him, that the blessings that remain are
more, and that our life is yet full of His. mercies, and
that His love appears even in the adversity as well as
in the bounty. There is not one of us who has not
reason to render to Him a public tribute of gratitude
this day for the blessings of His providential and
gracious hand to us individually.
But we are blessed, and may to-day feel ourselres
blessed in the great nation of which we are still a
part. As citizens of that favored country, we would
anew recall" to mind its worth, and think of the great
blessings in which we share in commou with all its
It is in the first place a matter for Thanksgiving
that we have a country, and a nation that we can
call oar own. Thougi in a foreign land, we are not
wanderers on the earth, every man's hand against
s, and ours against every man. There goes with
us a something of credit and of character, that makes
us more than the mere individual. There is a power
behiasJ us that wraps us about with its influence,
and throws the regis of its protection over us. We
have a country, and our feet may return and rest
upon its soiL Our homes may be under its sky, when
ever other climes prove insalubrious or inhospitable.
Its fields of ripening grain may be for our sustenance.
Within its safe borders our right, not mere privilege,
it is to follow the peaceful pursuits of life. Its ery
hills and streams court our love. The warmth of its
social life beats in our hearts, and keeps them,
though remote, from becoming cold and solitary. Its
virtues and principles bind us to walks of purity and
nobleness. Jfes, it is worth something to have a
country that we can call our own. It is good to love
it. Heathen poets have sung that it is sweet to die
for it. Many a hero has felt himself privileged and
honored ia giving bis life for his country. The pul
sations of the national life have beaten for the time
in him, and he has been exalted in greatness by the
spirit of the nation that has filled him.
To feel as we go forth in the world, that a great
nation is behind us, and that we belong to a noble
and mighty people, gives us a conciousness of dignity
and worth. Something of our government's strength
is in our efforts. Something of its dignity is in our
walk. Its honors rest down upon our heads, and its
achievements are our pride and boast. The poorest
lioman that trod the remotest strand of earth, felt
that he was the citizen of a mighty and glorious na
tion. There is thus something of his nation's strength
and greatness entering into every, citizen. His na
tionality gives him a character. "Not only do the
laws of his country give him protection at home and
abroad, but the fact that he belongs to a people and
! a government tends to make him more of a man.
And if that nation is great and noble, and free, if its
laws are wise, and its government good, if its
history is grand, and its position commanding, if it
has the spirit of greatnesss of achievement and pro
gress, so much. the more does it lend of itself to the
individual ; the blessing of citizenship is all the
greater. That our children may rejoice in the land of
our birth ; that they may love its institutions and its
government ; that they may feel noble and free and
strong on account of their nationality, is not among
the least of the blessings to be grateful for. And
while we rejoice in all that is great and good in other
lands, and while we would uuite .with those of other
States and "kingdoms in a heart-felt Thanksgiving
for all the blessings and honors with which the good
God has favored their countries, yet taking it all and
in all, we know of no country, and no government,
that we would exchange to-day for our own. We are
glad to be citizens of that noble realm, of that free
nation. We are glad to have our children grow up
in the spirit of its liberties. We rejoice in its history,
its conflicts, and its rising power, in its youth, and
vigor, in its uir name and in its broad scope of
If there ever was' a nation of which our text could
be truly spoken it is onrs. Israel was not a more
chosen people. Their beginning was not more of
God, and their history was not more under the shap
ing of His hand than ours has been. The Psalmist
saw that the Lord had not dealt so graciously and
grandly with any of the surrounding people, and
especially in this, that they had not known His judg
ments, i. e.. His revealed will. What he meant was
that Israel's greatness and prosperity and joy, were
owing to the fact that they were God's people, and
bad His truth and His laws. They had the true re
ligion of Jehovah, and as His people, God had dealt
marvelously with them, and in view of this Israel's
singer exclaimed, " Praise ye the Lord." God's
mercies to his nation was his song of praise. Have
not we, my fellow-citizens, a yet sweeter song to sing
in this respect? For is it not more true that he
hath dealt marvelously and graciously with us ?
Look for instance at the surpassing natural advan
tages that He has given us. No people has He blessed
with fairer and broader acres. For beauty of land
scape, fertility of soil, variety of climates, and pro
ducts, comprehensiveness of resources, great store
beds of metals and coals and oils ; for facilities for
arts and manufactories, and commerce, farms and
fisheries, forests and prairies ; and for all that can
lift up the mind to the noble and the grand, for great
mountains and stupendous cataracts, and great
rivers, and inspiring views, and scenes of every
kind He bath not so dealt with any people. The
promised land of Canaan was fair and fertile, and at
that time very central and commanding in position.
But in none of these respects can it now compare
with the goodly heritage which the Lord has given to
our nation. Is'o nation has now, and prospectively
so central and commanding a position. It is getting
to be more and more midway latitudinally and longi
tudinally in the great courses of trade and travel.
It is a land surpassingly fitted to be the seat of em
pire and influence. It is a country to be loved, pne to
which the generations of posterity will become most
fondly attached. A dearer fatherland than it will be,
no descendants of the human race have ever ojierished.
Consider further, that the Lord hath dealt with us
blessedly also in our origin as a nation. He gave to
us a royal beginning. - Abraham's call to go forth to
Canaan, and be the father of a chosen people was
not more divine Or grand than was the planting of
the goodly pilgrim seed on the wild shores of New
England. . The Puritans were the worthy founders
of such a nation. Their faith and righteousness
were the germs of a free and strong government
They were of blood such as greatness ia made of. They
were of a commanding race, and their character was
sterling and royal in its' strength and goodness. No
nation ever had an inception more worthy and noble.
God was laying the foundations of our free institu
tions, and of our rare progress, of our present and
future growth, when He brought to that new conti
nent our brave and godly and pure forefathers. It
was from out of their principles that he caused to
grow up our liberties and our power. He fitted them
and their eons, not only to- stand npon their rights,
not only to earn what they enjoyed, and pay for
what they got, not only to declare and maintain their
independence but also to form the freest, most equa
ble and best of governments. With rare heroism and
self-denial, standing up at the cost of life for their
rights, and for the truth, yielding to no adversities,
intimidated by no formidableness, they made them
selves a separate and self-governing people, and this,
with example and tradition and history almost
wholly against them. The experience of all na
tions was testifying that the common people must
have kings, that they could not govern themselves,
and yet our forefathers laid down principles of
law and government more wisely than all the sages
of the kingdoms, and they built republican institu
tions which to-day are the glory of the-earth. And in
consequence a new era of free thought, and respon
sible manhood and human rights has dawned upon
the world, and all nations re feeling it It is thus
with a noble pride that we think of the grand and
royal origin of our nation. It had a birth worthy of
all the after greatness to which it may attain. It is
a blessing to any people to be able to point to such a
i beginning, rather than to one in the lust for power,
i or in conquest, dishonor and shame.
Consider again, that God hath not so dealt witn
any people in the form of government that He baa
rerfectly fitted to secure
fht int oTthe governed." It has Jn aU

We have then great reason io v - -y
for the government He has given to our ns-2Q
opneuor'i heel grinds us. No key of know edge s
withheld from any. No door of truth is barred
aeainst the humblest. No cloud of ignorance keeps
the masses in superstition. No sword of terror
guards the way of life from the approach of any.
Each one may walk in paths of his own selection,
and climb to any eminence that he has the ability to
occupy. No shackle now binds the soul or body of
any except such as he himself may have forged and
bound upon himself. It is a sublime spectacle to see
such millions of free men covering our wide extent
of territory, great alike in peace and war, millions
of liberty-loving men standing up under the respons
ibilities of self-goernment, able to repel any foe
without, and to crush any traitor within, loyal and
patriotic from their own enlightened choice, and
ready ever under their convictions of right to make
sacrifice of life, and wealth, for the honor and welfare
and perpetuity of their country. We are blessed in
this perhaps above all the nations of the earth, and
we do to-day, not boastingly, but humbly give our
Thanksgiving to God for it.
See again, how, in giving us a rapid growth and
progress, God hath dealt witn us as He hath not
with any other people. While other nations have
trodden a slow and uncertain way through long
centuries, ours has come up into equal power and
position within the age of a single man. Young as
it is, all the. great nations of the earth are not only
recognizing it as standing in the front rank with
them, but are more and more looking to it for pre
cedent and example. Declaring itself a nation less
than a century ago, it to-day confesses to no superior.
It thinks of none as more mighty or prosperous, or
as having greater resources. It fears none as foe.
It feels called upon to arm itself against none. It
looks up to none 'for favor. It is itself drawing the
eyes of the world to itself. Bleeding France, in her
agony, gathers her hope from the strong and free
people of the new world. And as Seward is reputed
to have remarked the American, the world over, is
becoming the man of the period." In the arts of
civilization and peace also, our country stands among
the foremost' It leads all the kingdoms in the results
of inventive genius In practical mechanics, in
navigation, in applied arts, in, the results of military
sciences, it is second to none. The steamooat, and
telegraph, and reaper,".-aud sewing machine, and
multitudes of minor inventions, which have wrought
marvelous changes in the processes of business and
life, have been given to the world by it. It has torn
away forests aud planted homes and gardens and
cities over hundreds of millions of miles of area.
The yearly products of its soil are valued at over
2,000,000,000 of dollars. It manufactures to the
value of 1,200,000,000. The worth of its live
stock is estimated at nearly $1,500,000,000. It had
a commerce before our late war to the amount of
$2,000,000,000. Its rail roads add miles almost too
rapidly to be counted. Its common schools dot its
whole surface, and are reckoned by the hundred
thousand. Its colleges are numbered by hundreds,
and its academies by thousands. Its presses send
forth millions upon millions of sheets day by day
and week by week. The gospel is dispensed from
more than a hundred thousand places of worship.
And more and naare the country is btcoming full of
all those social aud educational and religious, and
artistic and literary fruits which are the heritage,
and joy and wealth of a people. Made up of all
these elements our nation's influence has gone out
into all the world. The isles of the sea, have caught
its spirit of progress. It has awakened the old
empires from their slumber of ages. It has aroused
the spirit of manhood and freedom in the old world,
and the other states of the new. For all this we do
thank our God to-day. -
Se again how God has dealt with our nation
marvelously and blessedly in bringing it through all
its great trials aqd tribulations, not suffering the
fi-uitn of its- Ktmtrrlea and victories to fall to the
ground, and bringing good out of the evil that was I
bred within it He has lifted it up out of its adver- j
sities. He has brought it forth out of its greatest '.
perils, as into a large place. In the crucible of its I
greaicst afflictions, He has seemed to consume away j
its besetting sins, its corruptions, and its slavery, j
which most of all, threatened its vital growth. For ;
long, long years, slavery was as a great cancer, j
eating into the very vitals of our nation. It was t
seuding out its strong roots, and filling with its
disease, every part of the national body. It was
making sickly the moral sentiment of the whole land.
It was rotting out our noblest thoughts and princi
ples of freedom. It was intimidating, and silencing
the press itself. . It was casting its baneful influence
over the pulpit It was assuming such power, and
imperiousness as to demand that it should no longer
be spoken of as a sin, but should be honored, and
considered as a badge of nobility. It was controlling
in the national councils. It was dictating in the
decisions of the judiciary. It was demanding to be
regarded, as national, and as the inherent strength
of our government, as the very basis of its prosperity
and strength. It began to speak contemptuously of!
free labor. It trod upon them that toiled, as but the i
mudsills of society. It arraigned itself against j
publio education, and finally it took up the sword to j
found for- itself an empire of slavery. This world 1
never knew a more perilous hour. The whole world j
had an interest in its issue. Had freedom fallen I
before slavery, anarchy and blood would have con- j
tinued ever and anon to roll their dark waves over
our land, and maukiud everywhere would have lost I
their best hope. But God saved us out of that sin.
He delivered us out oT that. bloody tribulation. He .
lifted from us the curse. He ransomed us with a j
fearful nrice. And He not onlv brought us forth in '
victory, but He is also giving us the blessed fruits of
victory. The .wound is healed. A truer unity per
vades the nation. The one great question in regard
to the nature of our government the question with
which the great minds in Washington's day had
grappled, which Hamilton and Madison and. Jay
wrote upon, which Webster and Hayne had their
great conflict over, which .Calhoun grew great upon,
and which filled the halls of legislation up to the
very hour of conflict the question whether our gov
ernment was a confederate or federal onion was
forever decided. That fratricidal blood, under the
mercy of God, cemented us into one nation, with but
one national - life, and common national interests.
Slavery everywhere henceforth bears its proper brand
of crime. The fields of the sunny south, stirred by
the hand of freedom, bloom with richer harvests to
day than they ever did under the curseful touch of
bondage. The crushing debt also, the awful price of
oneness and liberty, is being paid with providential
and unprecedented rapidity. : '
And now also, that terrible rot of corruption
which such a war ever breeds, is giving way. Unuer
the passions and necessities, and disorganization of
that fearful war, business and political corruption
spread wide and deep. It became a peril to our
country scarcely second to that of slavery itself, but
the present uprising of the virtuous people in the
city of New York, the very heart and core of the
great disease, gives us assnrance that, from this
deadly rot also, the nation will be saved. For thia
also we can say with David, Praise ye the Lord."
There is not a city, or nation, or individual in the
wide world, who may not well give thanks for this
Strong rising tide that is setting toward purity and
political righteousness in'oar country.
' Floating out from our late conflict, there was also
a threatening cloud of war, hanging uncertainly,
between England and our country. Diplomacy long
waa puzzled, and at any time, between these wo
noble, fraternal. Christian powers, there might have
been war, to the shame and disgrace of both, and to
the retarding of the world's hope of peace and to
the hinderance of the cause of Christ everywhere ;
bat under the gracious leading of the Divine hand,
the eky is now clear, and a truer,, better, more
brotherly feeling exists between the two countries
than ever before. For this also, we praise the Lord
to-day with cheerful heart and voice. In the afflic
tions also that .have just befallen our cities, and
villages, and counties, we have much reason for
Thanksgiving. While we recognize the scourge,
while we feel it as a chastening and as a rebuke to
the growing worship of riches, and to the worldliness
of us all ; while our hearts bleed for them that have
suffered so fearfully, yet, we see that in the wrath,
mercy is remembered. The loss equalises itself in
some measure over the whole country, and a purer,
holier feeling of humanity and brotherhood wells
up in the hearts of the whole nation. A larger place
has been made in the hearts of the people for their
fellow men. Narrow avarice and selfishness have
made room for generous love. Large streams of
good will, and sympathy and benefaction have flowed
even from foreign lands, and the world has a better
feeling of Christian regard to-day, because of these
chastenings. If tbey shall lead us to be less grasp
ing, less overbearing, less trusting m riches, we shall
have yet more reason to thank and praise the Lord
for His goodness. God so tempers His judgments
with mercies that there is doubtless as much real
the Jiuroest rliit or nis mu..-., -j ---calls
upL Him for responsibility, for thought and
cia j sun-it of intelligence.

of its terrible conflagration, and of the almost utter
ruin spread before us, she exclaimed, with a cheerful
face, " oh, we have a great deal here for which to be
thankful." And a gentleman coming up. also re
marked, that before the fire, they were all repining
at the dullness of the times, and uneasy to better
their lot, but " now, said he, not a murmur is heard ;
all are cheerful and plucky and full of hope." And

not forgetting also the favors and the blessings that
we enjoy here, under this constitutional and free
government, in thesj Islands, our adopted home.
Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His
, Kicked by a Mule. .
, Jake Johnson Imd a mule. There was nothing
remarkable in the mere fact of his being the pos
sessor of such an animal, but there was some
thing peculiar about the mule, lie the animal
could kick higher, hit harder on the slightest
provocation, and act aglier than any other mule
One morning, riding his property to market,
Jake met Jim Hoggs, against whom he had a con
cealed grudge. ' He knew Bogg's weakness lay in
bragging and betting ; therefore he saluted him
" How are you Jim? Fine morning.'
" Hearty, squire,", replied Jim. Fine weath
er. Nice mule that you have. Will he do to bet
on?" ' . . '. .
' Bet on? Guess he will that. I tell yer, Jim
Boggs, he's the best mule in this country. Paid
$500 for him." .
Great' 6mash ! Is that so?" ejaculated Jim.
" Solid truth, every word of it. Tell you don
fidentially, Jim, I'm taking him down for betting
purposes. . I bet he can kick a fly off from any
man without its hurting him."
"Now, look here, "squire," said Jim, " I am
not a betting character, but I'll bet you some
thing on that myself.'. ! ' ,'
"Jim, there's no use ; don't bet, I don't want
to win your money."
. " Don't be alarmed, squire ; I'll take such bete
a6 them every time."
" Well, if you are determined to bet, I will
risk a small 6take say five dollars.
" All right, squire, you're my man: But who
will he kick the fly off? There is no one here
but you and I. You try it."
"No." Bays Johnson; "I have to be by he
mule's head to order him."
" Oh, yaas,'.' 6ays Jim. " Then probably I'm
the man. Wa'alf, I'll do it ; but you are to bet
ten against my five if I risk it."
'" All right," quoth the squire. " Now, there
is a fly on your shoulder, stand still." And
Johnson adjusted the mule. .
" Whist Jervy," said he.
The mule raised his heels with such velocity
and force that Boggs rose in the aiHike a bird,
and alighted on all fours in a muddy ditch, bang,
up against a rail fence.
Rising, in a towering rage, he exclaimed:.
" Yaas, that is Biuart! I knew your darned mule
couldn't do it. You had that put up. I wouldn't
be kicked like that for fifty dollars. You can just
fork over them ere stakes-for it any way." -
. " Not so fast, Jim ; Jerry did just what I said
he could ; that is, kick a fly off a man without
its hurting him. You see, the mule is not in
jured, by the operation. However, if you are not
satisfied, we will try it again as-oftcn as you wish."
"The deuce take you," growled Jim. "I'd
rather have a barn fall on me at once than have
that critter kick me again. Keep the stakes, but
don't say anything about it."
And Boggs trudged on in bitterness of soul,
murmuring to himself. "Sold, by thunder, and
kicked by a m ale ! " f
An Eccentric Translation of the Psalms.
" Burleigh " writes to the Boston Journal:
We bid fair to have as many translations of the
Bible as we have different compilations of hymns.
Besides the organisations formed for the purpose
of translating the Bible, private individuals are
trying their hands at the work of mending King
James'. A distinguished but eccentric doctor of
divinity is said to employ his leisure on a free
translation. I was in a religious meeting last
week where specimens of this new work were ex
hibited anj read. 1 send you the translation of
the 23d Psalm :
Deity is my pastor. I shall not be indigent. -He
causeth me to recumb on verdant lawns.
He conducteth me beside the unrippled "liquidi
ties. - He reinetateth my spirit, he conducteth' me in
the avenues of rectitude, from the celebrity of his
appellations. - :'
Indubitably, though I perambulate the glen of
the sepulchral dormitories, I shall not be perturb
ed by appalling catastrophes ; thy crook and thy
wand insinuate delectation. .
Thou positest a refection for me in the midst of
inimitable scrutations ; thou perfumesfe my locks
with odoriferous nnguents ; mj chaliee exube
rates ; unquestionable benignity and commisera
tion shall continge all the denturnity of totality,
and 1 will eternalise my habitance in the metro
polis of Nature.
A Bot's Cojfposmoy. The following literary
gem we. believe was not written by a scholar at
any school in this city : A goat is stronger then
a pi" and gives milk. He looks at you. So does
the docter, but a goat has four legs. My goat
butted Deacon TUlinghast in a bad place, and a
little calf wouldn't do 'bo.:., A boy without a fa
ther is an orphan, and if he hain't got no moth
er he is two orphans. . The goat don't give m
much milk as a cow, but more than an ox. I saw
an ox at a fair one day with a cord tied to his
left ear, and he went in on a family ticket. Moth
er picks geese in the summer, and the goat eats
n-rcoa nnd iumns on a box. Some folks don't like
I had too much hair I would wear a wig, as old
Captain Peters does. ., I will sell my goat- for,
three dollars,.aid go to the circus and see the ele
phant, which is bigger than five goats. Father is
coming home to-morrow, and the baby has got
the croup bad, and to-morrow's my chill day. -
