Chromos are made in pure Oil Colors, and are printed in 20
colors, and any description I might attempt to five of them
would not do tbem justice, yet I will give our readers a partial
description of tbem, in order that I hey can get some idea of
their loveliness :
No. 1 is a One Chrocno done in pure Oil Colors, in 20 print
ings, size 13 by 18 inches, entitled:
Beware ! for
She Is fooling thee,
8 he is fooling thee,
Trust her not
Oh, trust her not ! "
This subject is represented by a beautiful young lady sitting
fn a rustic chair, beneath the overhanging branches of a fine
old elm tree ; she is faultlessly dressed, with her long, golden
ringlets hanging down over her shoulders; in her lap ia a show
er of beautiful flowers. Near by is a beautiful waterfall, while
io the distance tower mountain peaks. Taken as a whole, it
is a lovely picture the beautiful lady in the rustic chair in a
thoughtful mood, luxuriant foliage all around, the beautiful
flowers, the landscape, with the blue canopy of heaven o'er
all combine to form ao enchanting scene, and one that can
not fail to satisfy all.

beautiful picture of childish beauty and innocence, and cannot
fail to find favor in the eyes of alL Tbe coloring of the land
scape is very fine. In the distance is seen the little one's
home. The picture, as a whole, is very beautiful and true to
nature. It is well worth the price of a year's subscription to

the VISITOR a year, and the five chromos lor the small

angel forms scattering flowers and blessings on the bead of

watching ber child, while her bands have paused in the fancy
needle-work on which the ia engaged. It is a beautifully
sweet picture, and will find a warm place in every mother's
bear! in the land. Tbe child sleeping ao sweetly with a smile
hovering around its lips, the angel forms o'er head, the mother
watching her dear one, the rich draperies and furniture ol
tbe room make a rare picture of loveliness. It is taken from
a rare painting by one of the bid masters, and cannot fail to be
appreciated by all.

a strolling player, is rarely beautiful the sweet, beseeching
expression of the face could but make the most sordid find the
wsy into their pockets, and give her a few pennies. It is one
of the richest pictures we have seen for many a day. It is

THE BIBLE LOOKING-GLASS!
Reflector, Companion, and Guide to the Great Truth of the
And illustrating tbe diversities of human character and the
qualities of the human heart. Consisting of Six
Books in One Volume,
Profusely Illustrated by Object-Teaching
Showing the pain and misery resulting from rice, and the
peace and happiness arising from virtue.
BY JOHN W. BARBER, and Others.
This is tbe most -original work, without question, in re
ligious literature ever produced in our country as unique
and quaint in its way as Uunyan's famous allegory:
Among the world of books, it ia the only one that Instructs
in Christianity and human nature on the principle of object
teaching People who would seldom open the Bible itself are
atuacteJ to ibis work, for ills a big picture-book in religion.
Every picture, too, enforces a principle. No book extant so
instantly represents the Gospel no, iwt even the Bible itself
as this, by its appeals through tbe eye.
Over one hundred and thirty topics are Introduced and en
larged upon with illustrative pictures, such as Repentance,
Vaiih. Hope. Love, Justice. Time brings np Truth, The Mem
ory of Righteousness. Thf Memsry of Wickedness, Brotherly
Kindness, The Selfish Man. Tbe Christisn Church, The Syna
gogue of featan. The Safe Bridge. The Unsafe Bridge, Tw
and False Principles, Carnal Security, Faith and Works, The
Heavenly Shepherd, The Joys ol Salvation. The End of
Human Greatness, ic.
Tbe author is now an old man. His life has been filled and
rounded out with good works, ne was born in the last years
of the last century. In tbe administration of George Wash
ington. In 1812 he was apprenticed to learn tbe art of en
graving. More than a half a century ago he began, in a
small way, as an author. A book about that time was pro
jected by him, under the title of tbe "Looklng-Ulass." con
taining the essential features of this volume. His earliest
publications were large emblematic religious engravings, one
f which, in the hands of our missionaries fifty years sgo.'.was
tbe main instrumentality in the conversion of the Queen of
the Sandwich Islands.
Tbe pictures in the " Bible Looklng-Glass" are all from his
drawings, and many of tbem engraved by him." They show
great Ingenuity in design. They are not meant to be artistic,
but to convey at a glance some principle of truth vital to
human welfare. The costumes are those of the American
people when Mr. Barber was young sixty years ago. They
are now old-fashioned. Tbe Christian religion itself, we be
lieve, is not considered aew-faahiooed.
Tbe work has great popularity, over 100,000 copies having
already passed from the bands of Canvassing Agents into
those ol the people, where, lying upon tbe tables of thousands
of families, it has acted as a continual teacher of the Gospel.
The Bible Looking-Ulass" being in quarto form, is a com
panion io shape and character to the Family Bible, which it
reflects and explains. W hile the work U thoroughly evangel
ical and orthodox, no peculiar denominational doctrines are
advocated; only tbe great cardinal principles of Christianity,
in which good people every 'where believe.
The mechanical execution of this work is worthy of its
literary excellence, while the low price at which It U offered
places it within the reach ofj aU.

tiBEAT STDRE DF HONDLULl)
SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 1831.
Supreme Court of the Hawaiian Islands
January Term, 1881. ;
James McGuire vs. The Union Fire and Marine '
Insurance Comany of New Zealand.
Before Harris, C. J., Judd and McCully, J.
OPIXIOX OF THE COCRT BT II ARRIS, C. J.
The policy upon which this action is brought
is one of Insurance upon the ecbooner " Eugenia
M. Briggs " in these words, Bj these presents
doth hold insured A. B. as well in his own name
as in that or those to whomsoever the same may
appertain, and whether lost or not loot, at and
from (the words thus far being in print) Decem
ber 6th, 1879 to June Ctb, 1880."
And the question at the trial was, whether this
policy expired at midnight of June 5tb, or at
midnight of June Cth.
The Court instructed the Jury that the policy
was in force until midnight of June 6th ; and
the defendant's counsel, who contended that it
expired at midnight of June 5th, requested the
Court to reserve the point for the consideration
of the full Court, to which the Chief Justice,
who held term, consented.
The policy in question insures the vessel to bo
employed in the coasting trade in this country,
that is to bay, to visit any and all landings in
this country for the purpose of carrying on the
coasting trade ; and yet in the succeeding part
of the policy, this sentence occurs in print, It
shall be lawful for said ship, during currency of
this policy to proceed and sail to, and to touch
and stay at any ports or places whatever, if
thereunto obliged by stress of weather.'
Ihe Court is of the opinion that the ruling
given at the trial was correct.
The only word in the policy that could possi
bly give coloring to any oilier construction is the
" at " in the phrase " at and from December
6th, 1879." But an inspection of the instru
ment ehows, as is above said, that this word is in
the printed part of the policy and evidently refers
to place and not time, of which there are other
instances, as "the adventures and perils which the
said company are contented to bear, and take
upon them in this voyage are of the seas, etc.,"
where the word "voyage" is not erased. This word
voyage " as well as the words hereinabove
quoted, and other paragraphs in the policy
which are left still standing, and have no rela
tion to the risk taken, show conclusively, that
the form used was not accommodated fully to
the present risk by the person who filled it out.
To say " at December 6th " would be incon
gruous, and this preposition would not be used.
The obvious intention of the form was that
"Honolulu " for instance, or any other port
should be written in, 6o that the policy would
read " at and from Honolulu." Obviously then
tbe words " at and " were simply not
stricken out of the policy, therefore with the
word " at " properly stricken out, as inapplic
able, it would leave the sentence thus " from
December 6th, 1879, to June 6th, 1880," and

London, January 17th. In the House of
Commons to-day the debate on the address in
reply to the Queens speech was resumed. Mr
Justin McCarthy, the Home Rule member for
county Longlord, Ireland, moved as an amend
ment " lhat the Government Bliould refrain
from uting the military to enforce the ejectments
of tenants until the Land Bill was made law,"
and he made a lengthy speech in support of his
motion. The Hon. W. E. Gladstone, in reply,
said that he deemed the proposed amendment as
an insult to tlie throne, and as an attempt to
obstruct the action of the Government. Ho
hinted that strong measures would be taken to
prevent any such obstruction. Mr. Parnell also
fpoke on the motion, and in the course of hia
speech admitted that the ultimate object of the
Land League was to secure autonomy for Ireland.
He deprecated the commission by Leaguers of
any act likely to lead to revolution, but added
that the first arrent under measures of coercion
would be the signal for a complete repudiation of
rents by Irish tenants. The debate lasted during
the whole sitting, and was further adjourned to
January 29th. The Irish Coercion Bill intro
duced into the British Parliament by Mr. Forster
on the 24th ult, empowers the Viceroy of Ireland
summarily to arrest and- detain in custody all
persons suspected of treasonable offences. It
further authorizes the. adoption of special
measures, limiting the sale and possession of fire
arms throughout the country.

Following the Chilean forces in Peru and
Bolivia are hundreds of Chinese, lately employed
on haciendas visited by the Chileans. This horde
complete the work of rapine and plunder begun
by the invaders.
It will cost the cotton planters of tbe Southern
States 40,000,000 dollars to market this season's
crop, of which 25,000,000 will go into the pockets
of negro laborers. This is better than slavery.
The schooner Mavis, Captain Rosen, arrived at
Sydney on January 11th from the Solomon Islands,
bringing news of further atrocities by islanders
in the Western Pacific Captain Marshall, of the
Sydney ecliooner Zephyr, and bis crew have been
massacred. The information is from native
report, tut Captain Rosen has no doubt of its
authenticity. The Mavis was trading at Choiseul,
one of tho large islands of the Solomon Group,
on November 13, when a party of natives came
off to the vessel at a place called Bobetana, and
stated that the Zephyr had recently been at the
island ; and when she touched at Vavissy or
Wonda, some 70 miles from the above-named
place, the natives attacked the crew, and put
them to death in the usual native fashion. After
plundering the vessel of trade and island produce,
they burned her. Another report stated that a
white man and two natives had escaped. The
Zephyr was a schooner of 65 tons register, built
at the Bay of Islands in 1867. She traded for
some years between tho Solomons and that
port, and was of late engaged trading among the
islands for Captain Schwartz, of the schooner
Leslie. Captain Rosen states that owing to the
success which the natives have achieved in their
attacks on European vessels and traders, scarcely
any part of the Solomon Islands is now safe for
vessels to visit, as the natives openly state that
they will capture other vessels, and that they
firld the business more profitable than the ordinary

capital of Peru, by the Chilean forces.after a most
desperate fighting. It is now announced that the
Chileans, following up their victory, immediately
advanced upon Callao, which is six miles distant
from the capital, and is the principal seaport of
the country, which place they alio captured after
a short resistance. It is now expected that tbe
war will be speedily brought to a close.
