shall eive THE FIVE FREE to every subscriber to
ihe FIRESIDE VISITOR ! In addition to this, I
shall not only keep the VIMTOR up to its present stand

Chromos are made in pure Oil Colors, and are printed in 20
colors, and any description I might attempt to give of them
would not do them justice, yet I will give our readers a partial
description of them, in order that they can get some idea of
their loveliness :
No. 1 is a flne Chromo done in pure Oil Colors, in 20 print
ings, size 13 by IS inches, entitled:
Beware ! Beware ! for
" She is fooling thee,
She is fooling thee,
Trust her not
Oh, trust her not ! "
This subject is represented by a beautiful young lady silting
in a rustic chair, beneath the overhanging branches of a fine
old elm tree ; she ia faultlessly dressed, with her long, golden
ringlets hanging down over her shoulders; in her lap is a show
er of beautiful Bowers. Near by is a beautiful waterfall, while
in 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 an enchanting scene, and one that can
not fail to satisfy all.
No. 2 is a fine Oil Chromo, in 20 colors, size 13 by 13 in
A beautiful girl of eight years is out gathering ferns she is
barefooted, with no hat on her head, the wind playing with
her golden locks, the hs her apron lull of ferns. It is a
beautiful picture of childish beauty and innocence, and cannot
fail lo find favor in Ihe eyes of ail. The coloring of the land
scape ia 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 FIRF.SIDE VISITOR, yet every aubsciiber gets
the VISITOR a year, and the five chromos lor the small

This Beautiful Chromo represents a sleeping child, a beauti
ful girl of three years of age. She is sweetly sleeping with
her doll clasped in her hands. Over and above her are seen
angel forms scattering Ilowers and blessings on the head of .
the dear one. Beside her couch is sitting her mother intently
watching her child, while her bands have paused in the fancy
needle-work on which she is engaged. It ia a beautifully
sweet picture, aud will find a warm place in every mother's
heart in the land. The child sleeping so sweetly with a smile
hovering arouud its lips, the angel forms o'er head, the mother
walchiog her dear one, the rich draperies and furniture ol

a rare painting by one of the old masters, and cannot tail to be
appreciated by all.

This subject represents a beautiful Italian girl, dressed in
her native costume. She is what is known as a Street Music

has played and song to the crowd, and has quietly folded her
right arm over and around ber violin, while her left arm is
outstrecbed, thus mutely appealing to the public to give her
what tbey may. It is a lovely picture. The girl, though only
a strolling player, is rarely beautiful the sweet, beseeching
expression of the face could but make the most sordid find Ihe
way into their pockets, and give her a few pennies. It is one
of ihe richest pictures we have seen for many a day. It is

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 2G, 1831.
Supreme Court of the Hawaiian Islands
January Term, 1881.
Yim Quong and Wong Leon, Assignees, vs
Conchee & Ahung.
Before Harris, C. J-, Judd and McCully, J. J.
Opinion by the Chief Justice.
A small Chinese firm, doing business at the
corner of Hotel and Smith streets in Jionolula,
were owing to one of the plaintifia in this
case, in the month cf October, a note for $115,
which they were unable to ray. The evidence
says, that the payee of this note extended it to
January ; but it does not appear by inspection of
the note, that the plaintiff did anything more
than simply to say, that as he could not pay it, he
would give him a month or two more ; so that
the note was no lees due than it was before ; and
its being due and unpaid, is just as much an act
of bankruptcy as though the payee of it had not
At the same time, the same firm owed these
defendants, tba sum of $1,500; and likewise
owed Chulan & Co. the eum of $2000. The
defendants had Chulan & Co's debt transferred to
them, and save their note for it and demanded
tbeir debt ; and told them if tbey could not pay,
to give a mortgage for it. They all admit that
Yim Quon had told the defendants that his debt
was due. One of the partners of the debtor con
cern left in the latter days of November, 1879,
taking with him $1,000.
It would appear from all the circumstances
that he left with the knowledge of his partners ;
and that the $1,000 was the main portion, or
quite all their ready money ; for their store, stock
in trade, lease and all, only realized $1,855 20
at the closing out sale.
Now, no ooe supposes that the leaving of one of
the members of the firm, or even the absconding
of a member of a firm, would necessarily be an
act of bankruptcy. But the circumstances of
this case, justify this Court in coming to the con
clusion that when this man left with debts over
due, much exceeding the whole of their means,
and taking with him a large sum of money, he left
with the knowledge of his partners. They all there
fore were combining to defraud their creditors,
and conniving at the absconding of their partner.
It is to be inferred from the testimony, that
Chulan & Co s debt as well as the dett due
Conchco & Ahung, and the debt due these plain
tiffs had been over due more than ten days ; and
it is certain that the estate was insolvent at the
time of making this mortgage ; and the
mortgage itself tends to confirm the knowledge of
the defendants in that matter, for the note was
taken in payment fdr the consolidated debt, Dec.
3d, payable on demand, and the mortgage was
taken on the whole premises, and all the stock in
tra3e with condition of entry in ten days after
demand, and with further condition of sale at
private sale. Surely it cannot be said that the
mortgage is a bona fide purchase for a good con
sideration having ne notice of the insolvency or
bankruptcy at the time of receiving the mortgage.
Tbey knew that this firm was insolvent. It was
the very reason why they sought the mortgage.
They appear to have known all the circumstances
just as certainly as they know it now. Tbey
gave no new sum of money to the mortgagor.
The mortgage was not given for the purpose of
enabling the insolvent firm to carry on business,
but on the contrary, it was in point of fact given
and received for the pnrpoBe of closing out the
business and vesting the whole property in the
Lands of the defendants to the exclusion of all
other creditors, and by the Statute, such con
veyances made under such circumstances are
Our judgment is that this morteaee is void.
and therefore, the judgment given at the October
term, losu, is alarmed.
We take occasion to say that all the noints
raised by the defendants were clearly a matter for
the jury, and therefore were as conclusively pass-
ea upon py tne justice, jury Having been waived,
as it (.nejury nau passed upon them ; and though
we have reviewed the circumstances connected
with this transaction, we do not desire it to be
understood that we will on any future occasion,

Hooks in Une oiume,
Profusely Illustrated by Object-Teaching
Showing the pain and misery resulting from vice, and the
peace and happiness arising from virtue.
BY JoHN W. BARBER, and Others.
This is the 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 is the only one that instructs
in Christianity and human nature on the principle ol object
teaehir.g People who wonld seldom cpen the Bible itself are
attracted to this work, for it ia a big picture-book in religion.
Every picture, too, enforces a principle. Ko book extant so
instantly represents Ihe Gospel no, net even the Bible itself
as this, by its appeals through the eye.
Over one hundred and thirty topics are introduced and en
larged upon with illustrative pictures, such as Repentance,
Faith, Hope. Love, Justice. Time brings up Truth, The Mem
ory of Righteousness. The Memory of Wickedness, Brotherly
Kindness, The Selfish Man. The Christian Church, The Syna
gogue of Satan, The Safe Bridge. The Unsafe Bridge. True
and False Principle, Carnal Security, Faith and Works, The
Heavenly Shepherd, The Joye ol Salvation, The End of
Human Greatness, Kc.
The 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 the administration of George Wash
ington, In 1812 heawas apprenticed to learn the art of en
graving. More than a half a century ago he began, in a
small way, aa an author. A book about that time was pro
jected by him, under the title of the "Looking-lilass." con
taining the essential features of this volume. His earliest
publications were targe emblematic religious engravings, one
ef which, in the hands of our missionaries fifty years ago, was
the main instrumentality in the conversion of the Uueen of
the Sandwich Islands.
The pictures ia the Bible Looking-Glass" are all from his
drawiogs, and many of them engraved by him. They show
great ingenuity in design. They aie not meant to be artistic,
but lo convey at a glance some principle of truth vital to
human welfare. The costumes are those or the American
people when Mr. Barber was young sixty years ago. They
are now old-fashioned. The Christian religion itself, we be
lieve, is not considered new-fashioned.
The work has great popularity, over 100,000 copies having
already passed from the hands of Canvassing Agents into
those ol the people, where, lying upon the tables or thousands
or families, it has acted as a continual teacher of the Gospel.
Tbe bible Looking-Glass" being in quarto form, is a com
panion in Shape and character lo Ihe Family Bible, which it
reflects and explains. While the work ia thoroughly evangel
ical and orthodox, no peculiar denominational doctrines are
advocated; only the great cardinal principles of Christianity,
in which good people everywhere believe.
The mechanical execution of this work is worthy of its
literary excellence, while the low price at which it is offered
places It within the reach of all.

Aiau vs J. Kujau and Alana.
Harris C. J., Judd arid McCully J. J.
Opinion of the Court by Judd, J,
This ia a bill in equity praying for a specific
performance, and alleging that on the 25th of
October, 1880, the respondent Kupau, executed
an agreement in writing, whereby he covenanted
to execute a lease for a piece of land in Waialua
to the plaintiff or a tvrm of fifteen years at
seventy dollars per annum. A payment of fifty
dollars was made aa advance rent aud, by the
agreement the further sum of two-hundred and
thirty dollars in all, four years rent, was to be
advanced on the let November when the lease
was to be executed.
The rcepondent on the lot Nov executed a
lease to the co-reepondent, Alana, for the same
land in the same terms except that a larger
advance of money was made. This lease was
recorded Nov. 5th. The main issue which was
contested, and upon which appeal was taken was,
whether Alana was protected by the Statue of
registration which prescribes that every convey
ance not recorded shall be void aa against any
euoeequeRi purcuaser m gooa laitu, ana lor a
valuable consideration not having actual notice of
such conveyance of the same real estato whose
conveyance Bhall be first duly recorded.
The evidence shows that three days after the
agreement with Aiau was made, Mr. N. Kaiai
kawaha who wrote and wtinessed the agreement
was met by Alana, ana he asked turn if Kupau s
ianu was icaeeu to -tiiuu i jvaiaiKawaoa replied
that it was and that the rest of the money was to
be paid in Honolulu, to which Alana nodded
There were two other witnesses who testified
as to conversations between themselves and Alana
between tbe 25th October and 1st November
when they told him that this land was leased to
Aiau, and that he had paid Kupau $50,00 on
account. This testimony is not successfully
disproved or rebutted.
This evidence shows to our minds that Alana
had the actual notice of the previous conveyance
which the Statute refers to ,and therefore the
prior record of his lease of November 1st availed
him nothing. Alana Lad actual notice on tbe
subject on which he eought information, and this
case differs in every respect from that of Wong
Euai vs Kamahalaau and Makue, decided by the
Chief Justice, wbich waa referred to by Alana 's
The decree of the Lower Court is confirmed. j
