the sea, and the disappearance of a Lake, loug
located near the centre of the town, leaving only a
Pond. These phenomena occurring so near the eclipse

rat-trap, that for cunning is bound to secure even
J the veterans, if the directions are followed. You
j must fix the platform so that it won't spring, and
j food the rats for a few days with corn meal and a lit
j tie rcdherring, and after they have got used to it,
j t.ike out the chock from the platform and you will
I bag the whole family. These traps have been tried

" Hoxok to Whom Honor is Dir."' The Gazette
of Wednesday, speaking of tbe lepers at Molokai,
says: " Vbathey need now are a faithful minis

i It imie. At Mr. Whitney's Bookstore may be seen
some samples of tbe Ramie plant in different stages
; of preparation fur manufacture. One sample was
raise 1 in London, probably in a hot-house, and
having been cleaned so as to resemble in appearance
i the finest flax, is stated to be worth there 56 per
; ton. Another sample wss raised in California ana (
! cleaned there by the " Hughes machine," and is said j
! to be worth in tho rough condition ns shown, $200 j
; per ton. There is another sample from Wailuku,
cleaned by hand, and also samples of native olona
and banana hemp. The Ramie grows in these islands
to remarkable perfection. It has been cultivated by
the Messrs. Hitchcock at Hilo, who hove expended
some S'300 or $400, as we are informed, but they ;
have not for some reason made it a success. It is
proposed by some of our prominent business men to
raise a fund by subscription, (a suitable portion of
land having been promised) in order to give a fair
trial to the cultivation and preparation for market of
the Ramie.' Government ought, and we are per
suaded the Legislature will, appropriate something
for this purpose from the public funds, as a proper
mode of encouraging the development of our re
sources. The Morning Star.
Speaking of the above named missionary packet,
the XhIioxi of Tuesday says that a large quota of
j the funds for the vessel are contributed by Ilono

tributed is spent herf. j For the year ending May

i New York, April 22. It is said that a clause
J has just been discovered in Section 119 of the new
I city charter, by which it is thought possible that
! Tweed, Connolly, and others of the Tammany rinr.
may escape tbe criminal prosecution begun against j
them. Belative to this Charles O'Conor savs he
had the matter under consideration, but the points
involved were so nice it would not be for the

" Some philosopher? hold theory, that erery cn
is insane on oine one or more subjects. This mmj or
j iaay not be but there certainlj is an insane strtAk
of sof;aesti in many of the Panahoa scholars. The
larger Lots and girls, with a tew most laudable cx-
' captious, are paired off into loving cup'.es who enjoy
as much of each other's cviety, anl fmiontly a
i little more titan tit ruh-s cf the sohol will allow.
' Often iarin? the .Isy, for instant, have we notioe-1
; ; 5ouie yoang man cf soft, smooth upper l'p, listlessly
leaning ngainst the verand poet and gazing appar
cntly at tha blank wall. We have often wondered
partieular lady was concealed in a doorway near by
and was the poor light that drew so shallow a moth.
; As we parsed they both held their silence and looked
j as though they deserved to be hung, or at lest bad
heard some very sad news.
In recess the boys are apt to be loafiog around the
girls room, cr. If from some unaccountable reason
they do make an attempt at a game of ball, a select
number of young ladies watch the game and smile
moat sweetly wheu their particular favorites make a
good catch, which, by the way, isn't often.
" In school, although open communication is not
allowed, still a world of love can be expressed by well
managed looks, and if the situation ia good an occa
sional cote can be passed.
"Evening meetings are most opportune for this part
of our society, and they attend them with clock work
regularity. Cousin and Sewing Societies degenerate
for them into long promenades and their longer walks
In fact, every possible chance for meeting ia taken
alvantage of, and the meetings are long and frequent.
We need hardly say what effect this sort of thiug
j has on hU study. When one-half of a person's time
' - ..a.. a a.
is spent in taking nonsense, even mougnuoe sweet,
and the other in as tsilly dreaming, there caa be but
little time for haul study.
But perhaps the worst feature of it all is the total
want of constancy. Every little while a misunder
standing or coldness arises, ending in an out and out
row. Young hearts are broken, or at least dun aged.
young letters returned, and a frigid silence ensues
i belweeu tlio parties.
All the love, if there ever was
1 any, is xurueu to uate, aim m jjrujjuiwuu a ic
former was tropical, is the latter now frigid, but
this teaches them nothing, for they are pig-headed
proof against both experience aud argument. Tho
very first chance they get they are into it again as
deep as ever. Well, such are Punahou scholars, or
perhaps we had better say Punahou children.
"We confess to have a slight contempt for a boy that
finds a girl's love a necessity of his sohool-boy exist
ence, and we should think that ho himself would
sometimes feel a little uummly, a little like not
looking a man in the l':icc.
" Give us the manly, etrong, energetic boy, over
boisterous perhaps, even a little wild if need be,
rather than the cringing, spongy one that has been
refined and polished by a gill's love."
You are rather hard on our gallant lovers. How
can they keep from loving? The world is full of love.
The poets were inspired with it. Nearly all the pro
ductions of the best authors of the present day are
In this age it would seem that man
was born to love. But we would suggest to our gal-
1 lant bchoolmates to be moderate and not let tiioir
; heart be stolen awav from their lessons and exercise
making. Let the cat ailair rest in oblivion, and ex
ercise your talent on this or some nobler subject.
r Of coiu bo we paw th eclipse last Sunday night,
end In spite of occasional parsing tradewind clouds
we had an excellent view of tbe thought-producing
phenomenon. As tho dark shadow of the earth
gradually crept over the shining face of the "full
orbed moon,'-' it was a fitting occasion to think and
speak reverently of Him who upholds tbe worlds
and guides them unerringly through space. It was
a time to tell the little ones of the family all about
Luna, and the queer beliefs that anciently prevailed
about her. Couant, in a late number of Harper's
j -VS;e, discourses interestingly on this topic, a
portion of which we will paraphrase here.
Among the illusions swept away by modern sci
ence was the pleasant fancy that the moon was a
habitable globe, like the earth, its surface diversi
fied with seas, lakes, continents, and Islands, and
varied forms of vegetation. Theologians and
savmits gravely discussed the probabilities of its
being inhabited by a race of sentient beings, with
I forms and faculties like our own, and even pro
i pounded schemes for opening communication with
them, in case they existed. One of these was to
construct on the broad highlands of Asia a series
of geometrical figures on a scaio so gigantic as to
be visible from our planetary neighbor, on tho sup
position that tho moon people would recognize the
object, and immediately construct similar figures in
reply. Extravagant and absurd as it may appear
j iu the light of modern knowledge, the establish
j ment of this Terrestrial and Luna Signal Service
Bureau was treated as a feasible scheme, although
! practical difficulties, which so often keep men from
making fools of themselves, stood in the way of
actual experiment; but the discussion was kept up
at intervals, until it was discovered that if there
were people in the moou they must be able .to live
without breathing, or eating, or drinking. Then it
ceased. There can be no life without air. Beau-
tiful to the eye of lhe distant observer, the moon i3
a sepulchral orb a world of death and silence. No
vegetation clothes its vast plains of stony desola-
tion, traversed by monstrous crevasses, broken by
I enormous peaks that rise like gigantic tomb-stones
into space; no lovely forms of cloud float in the
blackness of its sky. .There daytime is only night
lighted by a rayless sun. There is no rosy dawn
in the morning, no twilight in the evening. The i
nights are pitch dark. In daytime the solar beams j
are lost against the jagged ridges, the sharp points
of the rocks, or the sleep sides of profound abysses: ;
and the eye sees only grotesque shapes relieved i
against fantastic shadows black as ink, with none ;
of that pleasant gradation and diffusion of light, i
none of that subtle blending of light and shadow :
which make the charm of a terrestrial landscape. 1
A faint conception of the horrors of a lana day '
may be formed from an illustration representing a j
landscape taken in the moon in the center cf the j
mountainous region of Aristarcbiut. There is no
color, nothing but dead white and black. Tbe
rocks reflect passively the lisrht of tbe sun; the
craters and abysses remain wrapped in shade; fan-
tastic peaks rise like phantoms in their glacial cem
etery; tbe 8tars appear like spots in tbe blackness i
of space. The moon is a dead world; f-he has no j

j The Late Captain McGregor.
j It is our painful duty to record this week the

He may be said to have literally died in

I morning the 6th inst, shortly after the steamer had
nc nau prompt memcai attendance, uc conunueu to
i sink, and expired at his residence in this city, a lit
! tic after midnight of Monday last. Capt. McGregor
i was about G4 years of age, a Scotchman by birth
' and commenced his apprenticeship to tlio sea in those
j once celebrated schools of the sailor, the Lcith fish
' ing smacks. Subsequently he entered the British
: navy and was for some years a petty officer. Some
fifteen or more years ago ho came to these islands,
j and engaged in the coasting business. He was a
j thorough seaman, an excellent pilot among the isL.
I ands, and an eminently careful and skillful sbipmas

ever at his poet, night and day, and at length he
fairly broke down, a martyr to duty. He leaves a

Mr. Eoitor : The subject embraced by the cap- j
tion to this communication is one that baa more or
less interest to us all ; but it has been worn nearly j
threadbare and I should hesitate soinewha? before j
again making it a matter of discussion, were it not j
that I hope to open a new vein or rather make a new j
and perhaps novel application of the principles crov- !
erning such contracts
a a a a O
I think that all fair minded
persons will agree that it matters little what may be
, . . ' . . .
state or church of a party to a contract ; that the
same general principles, legal and
d moral, apply with
equal and binding force as to aristocrat or plcbian.
i Let U3 consider two supposable contracts. A plan-
tation laborer agrees with the planter, his master;
j that he will well and truly work for said matter or
j his agent or overseer for the terra of one year, for
i which the master agrees to pay htm one hundred
! dollars. This is the form of written contract with
' which we are the most familiar, and for the faithful
j performance of which, on the part of the laborer, wV
exact the pound of flesh.
j The other contract we will say is with a distln
; guished professional gentleman who has held posi
i tions of trust and emolument under a foreign gov
i eminent We might make a compact, a more solemn
j form of agreement, with this gentleman by which
' under the gravity of an oath of office be agrees to
' perform the duties of Chief Jastice of our Supreme
I Court and Chancellor of the Kingdom, positions cf
: great resp?ctability and greater responsibility. By
, this compact we agree on our part that we will not
i cancel the compact, unless for due cause shown and
satisfactory to the King and Xobles, but that the
gentleman may resign from office when he chooses,
and for the service rendered we agree to pay five
thousand dollars per year.
Quite recently we have had enunciated, ia certain
decisions, principles governing agreements, applied,
it is true, to tbe first contract which I have offered
for consideration, but which may apply in a general
way to all agreements, and I leave your readers to
deci le tbe degree of force with which they may be
applied to the last supposed compact.
As evcrv contract derives it effect from the intention of
the parties, that intention, as expressed or inferred, must be
! the c round and princijite of eery decision respecting its oper
' alien and ext'-nt, and the grand object of consideration in
everv question with regard to its construction.1 2 Folliier on
! Obligations, pp SO and 31.
I " The effect of tbe obligation which a tfrson contracts to do
; any ace, is that he ought to do what bo has engaged, and ih.it
to he condemned in damages tn the person In nhose favor he ia j
obliged1 etc 2 Pothfr on obligations, 5 144. -This is the
noIversrU rule, and there can be no doubt that in this case an
action for damages would lie. The defendant is legally as weU
ti ne ue not, alter u-i.int; ueeu piacea rs ar.mturt, ne ougnt

" Contracts of this character are usually made, conditioned
for an advance, and, if this construction of the law should ob-
j lain, it would be an inducement to make a contract, recetrc
the aiivance ship as a waman-e respondent did-remain
abroad nnul the time has expired, and then come into court
and claim an exemption ; or, if be preferred not to remain at
s-a so long at one time, be can do as the respondent did, desert
two or three times, ami, after short absences, the time will
have elapsed. He enjoys ids adTance, and complies, a it is
contended, with his contract. This could not liars been the
intention of the Leginliture the law una aids a man in a
dishonest purpose We regard this view of tha Statute as j
against a sound legal construction, aa well aa against the
; authorities. "
I But it is contended that it is in rpstraiut of one's liberty.
why more so than any other contract which a man makes
and booently fulfills. If a mechanic undertakes to build a
house, it occupies his time and diverts his attention from
other pursuits which, perhaps, he might prefrr. Every man
in public nfficr. it under obligation to attend to it duties,
and it is often in restraint of kit wishes, but no one thinks
tknl it impairs his liberty. Tbe Conrt is of opinion that it
ia Immoral to fail to fulfill a contract without a reason. The
man when he makes the contract understand perfectly well

were cautioned against entertaining an " astrono
