LAKSAH A i A ;
THE GREAT HERO of tie MALAYS.
2j WALTS2 GI2S0!:.
In the ye-ar whilst publishing a small Li-
linmal uLect. the .VuAou, in the Kuglish aud Ha
waiian languages, I was urj;el by Hawaiian
fritndd to write a htory axut my eirrttnce in
Malaysia, an-1 illustrative of Malay manner and
customs. I published some incidents of travel
in the Inland of Sumatra, and a 3 I introduced
some fragro?t.ts of the legendary stories of the
Malay, especially in relation to the renowned
hero Iutainana, of Malay romance, I was
pressed and texupted to expand this subject,
drawing ou my imagination, as wtll a on the
tradition of the Malays and Javanese to which
I had listened, and the result wit tLt the story
of Laksatuana" was continned in tha .VuAou in
the Hawaiian language, in a succession of week
ly inane for a space of six months, and yet w hen
tbe JViihou had terminated itH career, the story
like thone of S-hehe7erale, was left unfinished.
When the eilitur of the .Vu&ou, and author of
Laksamaua, commenced the publication of the
Eltle Poakolu in 1H0, the Hawaiian very gen
erally expressed a wish that the story of Laksa
mana should be continued ; for the memory of the
interest that it had awakened in 1873 had not
abated in Hawaiian ruinJ-i, and the author re
turned the story in the Eltlt, publishing a revised
tilition of the .Whom series of Laksarunua le
gend. Thin is a story based upon legends, designed
for the entertainment of young and unsophisti
cated minds. It is a romance of the mythic age
of Malaysia and originating in the poetic inven
tion of Asia. Luksamuna, the brother of the
demi-god Rama, is a hero of the great Hindoo
Ijeiu the Itamayana.' ami in a later age ap
pears in the Javanese epic, the 44 Bratayuda."
The mythic Prince of the Indian epopee has giv
en the name that is so prominent in Malay story,
but there was, according to widespread tradition,
an actual Malay hero to whom was given the
name of Laksamana, as a title, as eertain poten
tates of Europe are styled Casar deriving their
title from the name of the great Roman who
founded imperialism. Laksamana has long been
a naval title in Malaysia, being the titular desig
nation of an admiral, or commander of a fleet of
Lnksamana the hero is frequently mentioned
in Malay song and Btory at this day, and he ap
pears sometimes a mythic hero working wonders
and sometimes a historic personage and the hero
of Malay achievements. There is no written his
tory, or series of stories, recording in any col
lective form, the myths or the achievements,
and the author of this story, designed for the in
struction and entertainment of native Hawaiians
has had no assistance in the preparation of the
romance but the memory of fragmentary legends
narrated to him whilst he languished in the Pris
on of Weltevreden, on the island of Java, and
which he arranged into this Hawaiian laao, or
romnutic tale, daring days of peaceful toil on the
island of Linai.
This story is now, presented to the English
reading public, through the columns of the Ad
vertise e, not ou account of any presumed liter
ary merit, but because it has been thought by
many friends of the author that it would be in
teresting to those desiring the welfare of the
Hawaiian People, to know what kind of litera
ture captivated their attention, and at the same
time it was thought that the romance of Laksa
mana, would at least interest the juvenile, if not
the more matured readers of the Advertiser.

The Malav Princess and Alexander the Great ISirth
and Death in a Sumatran Forest.
Lka in uia w a marvellous hero of Asia, and
of Hie urent Islands of the Indian Ocean. lie
was a chief of wuiiderlul achievement by land
and e-. and he became gd in men's minds.
The ancient rop!e or Hindustan celebrated him
as a demi-jtod in their jtreat poems, but the Ma
lay people claua him as a hero of tSeir race, and
their tirie. traditions and pantuns, or aongs,
make frequent relerence to him and to hisachiev
ments. He sa d by them to have been a de
scendant of Alexander the Great. Kin of Greece,
who conquered all Asia, and ol Marasara, a Prin
cess of Men mgkahau. the once celebrated Empire
of the M ilay. in the I-dand of Sumatra. This
Princes, who had expressed her desire to meet
the raihtj monarch hero of Asia, to Nearchus
and his Grecians. whoe galleys had been
driven by - stret of weather to the Sumatran
coat. was taken oo board by Nearchus
on his return to the continent, was cared
for with all respect and conducted into tbe pres
ence of Alexander the Great, who. it is said
and sunj; br Malay chroniclers, loved very much
the Malay "Princess ; and who sent her back to
ber own island on board a (treat Grecian galley
that carried many costly and wonderful present
to the Emperor of Menangkabau, her father.
And in the royal palace ol the Forty Towers of
Menankabau the Prince gave bitli to a boy, tbe
on f tbe Grecian Hero. At this day there
ate ro-.ny traditions and m muments in Sumatra
relating to the achievments of the Macedonian
cooqucror, and to his connection with the illus
trious royal Malay line of Menangkabau. At the
ancient city of Palembang, in Sumatra, which
I. the chronicler of this story visited in 1852,
there are the ancient tombs of the descendants of
Alexander, and in other parts or tbe island of
Sutnatrc.are inscriptions to celebrate theprowe6s
of Dul Karnein. or the Two Horned Chief,"
an ancient name or Alexander in India and Malay
sia. One or the elevations of the island is called
IJukit Iskander," or the Hill of Alexander.
And a descendant, after many generations, ol
the Princess Marasara, named the Princess Ko
mala, gave birth to a boy child in a wild forest,
being driven Irom the Palace of the Forty Towers
by her royal father. This poor lady bad greatly
offended her Imperial ire. Sri Pati, the Emperor
of Menangkabau. by loving a poor, though noble
young chier or Sumatra named Lakas. She bad
formerly been married to a Prince of high degree
and bore a Son to him named Sri Rama, and after
the birth of the yoang Prince ber husband had
been killed in battle. And when the angry Sov
ereign discovered that in consequence of a secret
marriage, the Princess KomaU was about to give
birth to a child, he commanded that she should
be conveyed into the midst of the great Utn, or
forest of Somatra, a long journey from her oome.
and there should be abandoned, and left alone to
What an agony for this unharpy and tenderly
reared Princess, to be left without shelter and
without any comforts, in a dreaiful dirk rorwt,
. i:.f.n rh annall and roar ol the terrible
tiger, and the shriek or victims that became the
r ik.mi.httMtur the M-ilav wilderness.
Bat the Princess was not altogether alone, as
the cruel and vindictive King had permitted her
to bavo the company or a female slave named
Peng- She was faithful and devoted to ber poor
nistres. but what could she do with ber weak,
womsnly hands, to withstand the assault of the
ravenous tiger should he discover their retreat.
She strove to encourage and console the Princess
with the hope that they might yet get out of the
forest alive and be hospitably received by some
Alas! the weeping lady had no hope. She
felt pains and throes that would not allow her to
travel any further, and she only prayed for death.
Now the faithful Peng prepared a couch of the
dry atang grass within a small cave and assisted
the suffering lady, and by-and-by a beautiful boy
baby was born. The compassionate slave wept
over the little Prince exposed nsied to the in
clemencies and terrors of the inhospitable forest,
and then she wrapped him to one of her garments
and laid him down while sbe devoted ber atten
tion to her suffering mistress.

My lather will weep w ?ien le s-cs it; he wi.I
recognize hi own hlo d and I, is l eirt wiil turn
to me wl.cn I am waited on by t!.e Wjdadiri."
The good Peng eottin!y rem jns-t rated with
the despair ol her mistrf r ; but while s'.e fpoke
she noted the paling cheeks and the glaring eye
of the Princess, and alter a slight xtruzgle of
the hapless l.idy, Peng wa? alone wiih the baby.
For a while the poor woman gave way to a
clamor of grief ; but looking at the eilent iorm
of ber onre beautiful ar.d beloved mistress, she
though: with horror of the beasts that iniht
come to tear and di6gure it ; and the felt that
she would b tormented by the rakehasha, the
monster giant w men under the power of Arjuno.
if she did not save the body of t.e rjyal K mala
from desecration. She had no implement with
which to make nn excavation ; but sr.e observed
that tdere were many large tfor.es r.ear by
the mouth of a small cave in the lorct. After a
time, when the body was ttiff and cld. bhe laid
it gently in the cave on a bed of the fresh leaves
of the fragrant champaka Then she covered
the body with more leaves of the od jrous plant,
and then she laid the stones in such quantity in
the mouth of the cave that it was completely
closed, and the body covered up fr m tilit, and
secured so that it could not he disturbed by any
And now the wail ol the babe touched the
motheriy heart of Peng. Ah ! what could sl.e get
for the nouribhment ol the little Prince ! But she
must go in quest of something ; and she lelt that
surely the celestial maidens, the Wid idiri of the
forest, would help her to save the life of the
royal blood of Menangkabau. She proceeded to
search for the pulpy duku fruit, whose delicate
juice would soothe the little throat; and she hoped
10 Dna a pungent durian with which to satisfy
her own hunger.
She placed the babe high up in a spacious hol
low of a large tree, upon a little couch of dry
grass, and with piteous tenrs and moaning pray
ers, she hastened in quest f some food. As she
wandered in the depths of the forest, she was
terrified by the grunts and screams of great apes,
called Orang Outang, or wild men, by the
Malays. They clambered up the lofty tree?, and
stared grinning at the brave, slave woman. And
after long search she found the fruits she hoped
for, and hastened back to nourish the little
Prince. Rut all was silent, as she returned to
the tree where she had left the baby. Its cry
was hushed. Ahl Could it be dead! She
rushed to the place where she had lelt her charge,
but do babe was there ! She cried out with the
agonized feeling of a bereaved mother but there
was no response to her wail, except the grunt of
a great Orang, who was leaping from limb to
limb, amid the dense foliage of a Sumatran
Alter rain search and lamentation for the lost
child, the poor woman set out in search of some
human habitation, and to get awny from the
gloomy and dangerous fore.-t. She had not gone
far when she heard the outcry of men and the
tramp of advancing horses, and in a little while
she recognized some of the retainers of the Court
of Menangkabau, followed by the great Emperor
himself. The poor woman fell prostrate at the
approach of the cavalcade ; and when the mon
arch. Sri Pati, cried out in an anxious tone of
voice: 44 Where is the Princess Komalu ?" the
poor slave answered, sorrowfully, and weeping
plenteous tears : Oh, dread Son of Heaven,
the Princess and a new-born Prince have been
called away by Arjuno!" 44 Never Never!"
cried the remorseful monarch. 44 Slay the slave
who says the Princess is dead. Oil! Kotnala 1
Kotnala ! How could my heart bo so hard
But say quickly, slave, what has happened to
the Princess?" And, Peng being entreated,
rose up and led the way to the cave, where the
cold, yet beautiful, corpse of the Princess Ko
tnala was found.
The grief-stricken monarch, now deeply an
guished by remorse, wailed over his lost dauah
ter. He cried out : 4 Oh. Arjuno ! thou that
rulest the spirits thou did'st well to take the
unhappy daughter awny from the cruel father.
I sent her to sleep with the tigers. jct them
tear me. Oh, Spirits of the forest, hear me, and
let my cry reach my child." But the sorrowing
King poured out his repentance in vain. No
voice eame back from the daughter, that he drove
away from her royal and parental home ; and no
trace was lound ol' the lo.-t babe.
After much search, in vain, this was said by
some forest men consulted by the King, that
some great ape, or orang, and no doubt, a female
one, had carried ou the habe. Ihey told how it
had happened : that a crying child in a Malay
hut had often attracted the attention of the
female semi-human cranes, and they hud in some
cases- seized such a child and carried it od'
not to injure it, but l nurse it with their own
human-like breasts. And cases were told of
children that had been recovered alive, after be
ing in the bands of Orans for some length of
time, which, indeed, has happened in modern
times. And the foresters went on to say, in
order to coraloit the Kin, that as there was no
trace of blood about the tree, it was evident that
the tabe had been carried off alive, by some of
the great Orang that abounded in the forest, and
that the illustrious Sri Pati might hope, if dili
gent search were made, to find his noble grand
son alive in the forest.
Then the King offered a great reward of dia
monds and firearms to nil the foresters for the
recovery of the baby Prince; and he returned in
sorrow with his followers, bearing the body of
the dead Princess KomaU hack to Menang
kabau. the Palace ol the Forty Towers, to place
her body in a crypt of ivory and gold.
