THE GREAT HERO of the MALAYS.
By WALTZ?. OTS2AY GIBSON.
Originally published in the Hawaiian
language, and written especially for the
in fraction and entertainment of Ha-
TLe Adventures of Laksaiuana and the I'rinc5S in
tbe Forests of Sumatra.

objects he oteerTed in the journey. In this be
proved the eupenor caaracter of bis nature.
The cljief portion of mankind ; whether civilized.
or uncivilized give their chief, if not their only
"Mention, to the acquisition of means for eub-
Met?nce, or display; and anything not connected
ith their pressing individual interests, they
pa(s by unnoticed. But euperior nutureu, not
entirely occupied witlj their own "cI6sh wants,
will examine with pleasure, plants, fljwers,
fern?, injects, bliells, and all the curious things
. the untural world ; so as to study somewhat
the deMna of the Intelligence that planned the
Universe. We will not suppose that Laksamana

nifiiofj nil tl.in-, and he wondered. Wonder

id tiny passed through what ap
;r..ve ot many trees, that covered
mile lon. .i
lienred a deuM'
more than an Here ol ground. But Laksamana
knew from t hud been told him by learned men
in Nia, that all this grove, was but one tree, tho
waringm, a species t banyan, which droops its
linibs", and a they touch the ground, the end of
the iimhs tuke rout ; and produce new stems
or trunks; pu Unit after a while, the first origi

rounded by several hundred other trunks with
tr.cir tops oi nrnnuiie ana leaves, all springing
tioin one parent stock or stem.
As they passed along by the edge ol souio
mnrsf.y ground, they observed an enormous
flower, like a mighty rose ; as big indeed as a
carriage wheel ; being over three feet in dia
meter. Its gigantic cepals were tinted with
various shades of purple. This great flower has
been, described by a distinguished Englishman
named Unfiles, hence this giant among the
flowers has been culled Rafflcsia.
Thus the Hero and the Princess journeyed
along, without noting the advance of time, or
feeling the fatigues, or inconveniences of the
But if love nnd the gratification of an iutelli
gent curiosity kept L.tksamana and Umbra in
good spirits; such interests and sentiments offered
no solace to the weary tramping and now hungry
escort. And they began to murmur like fagged
out men will olten do
When Laksamana observed the suffering of his
brave men, who had plodded through a difficult
and tangled forest all day, he began to look
around for a spring of a small stream of water,
near some place suitable for a camp for the
night. And alter a while observing a small pool
of clear water, beneath a large rock, which
stood in the shade of a grove of lofty trees, he
ordered a halt, and when his men noticed tbe
beauty of the place, and tbe cool freshness of
the water, they cried out with delight "O.what
a sweet place Let us drink and reet ! ' But
they had hardly spoken when they heard a terri
ble loud voice, crying out "Wo, you will not.
Umbra who had stepped out of her palanquin,
i-crcamed with terror Laksamana who stood
forth b-'idlv, looking around on all sides, shouted
defiantly ; ' Who ara you, that will dare to pre
vent us? " He had not ceased speaking when a
huge figure, a gigantic human being about eight
feet high, stepped forth from the dense part of
the rove. ihe creature showed a dark nobby
face, showing many warts or moles from which
tufts of coarse hair were pendent. A large
mouth wide and deep like a cavern, and from
which protruded long shining white teeth like
the tusks ol a wild boar. Coarse hair like wire
Jangled down on her shoulders. But this terri
ble huge body, with its forbidding aspect, was
enveloped in a rich robe of heavy silk, studded
with gold and diamonds, and as tbe breeze blew
upon a part of the vesture, female breasts were
revealed ; and then Laksamana knew that he had
before him one of tho terriblo giantesses of Su
matra, culled a Rakshasha, who was beleived to
kill and devour men
The fearful giantess approaching Laksamana,
with an immense spear poised in her right hand,
cried ut to him "Boy, bring thy girl forward
and cut her throat, and then make a lire to roast
her by, and serve her carcase to me to eat, and
then when I have had thee do my will, I may let
thee and thy people pass on. Make haste or I
will slay you all ! " Umba bad fainted at first
hearing the terrible words like one dead, and the
men stood aghast, gazing on the monstrous
woman, wich a look of terror. But Laksamana
had no fear and be faced tbe giantess.
Winn the Rakshasba saw that Laksatnana
stood ready to fight with her, she howled with
rage m l s.tid: "You stupid boy, I will tie you
ami the jin together lace to lace, ana roast you
boi!i a hve, over a slow lire. As she finished
sneaking, she hurled a spear at Laksamana, but
he jumped quickly aside ; and turned to make a
thrust at her with his spear; but she quickly
seized it in her strong grip, and broke the shaft
a easily as if it were a stem of straw; and at
the same time she had clutched him by the
shoulder with her mighty hand. Had he been
an ordinary man he could not have escaped ; but
the mighty hero, gave a sudden twist of his
body .unloosed her hold, and broke away from her
hold. Tiie giantess tore away at the time his
garment Mom his back. The baffled fury now
ru-hed upon the hero vuth both her outstretched
mighty brown hairy arms; but he eluded her
grasor. and turning swiftly struck her shoulder a
heavy blow with a force of a sledge hammer, the
sound of it resounding through the forest, as
though the tough hide of an elephant had been
struck by a cannon ball ; and the blow was
strong enough to have broken the jaw of a
horse ; yet it did not produce any noticeable
e fleet upon the body of the monster woman.
Then Laksamana aaw that he could not hurt
this terrible being with the strength of his arms,
or the force of his blows ; and he felt that he
must exercise cunning and agility in order to
buflk' her. Therefore l e ran, bs though over
come by fear, and seeking to escape. Now the
giante-s lauglwd with derision.as die pursued him.
By this" lime, some of the men, who had ro
covred from the effects of their fright, and were
too brave to allow their chief to fight with the
monster alone, rushed forward with spears in
hand, the foremost making a thrust at her
fhe tur:icd swiftly round, and seizing the man
who was not swift enough to elude her grasp like
his cliiel ; she lilted him up like a child, and
dashed his brains ont against the trunk of a tree;
and then kept on in pursuit of Laksamana.
The furious monster woman of the forest was
gaining upon the Hero, an J was about to grasp
him by his long hair, when he sprang, to catch
t!:e limb of a tree ai.d clambered up into its dense
; loliage : hut he was as swiftly " followed by the
j monster woman. L'p to the top of a lofty tree
I the hero climbed; and the fearful being was close
f behind. He crawkd out upon a limb, his pursuer
following, and ihelimb bent down sinking with
' their treiuen Jou-' weight, an f brvke with a crash.
pree pitating the Hero and giaetss to the ground.
Tiii - wn.il haic been the ler ninatiou of the
cir.er..! Lik-aoiata had thj Uikshasha fallen
i upon hiwi : but he was quick and agile as a mou-
k' y.imd again eluded the grasp of his terrible
! rV T'f P' "Th TV ,
; following. lut now it was evident tuat the
, ,.ir,tlss " was blowing hard, whilst Laksamana
j was eiili in good wind. Therefore fie had hopes
' to tire her out. As he ran he saw before him a
small lake or pond of water, the giantess rush-
,ng ... close upon his heels put she was breath-
ing hard and loud like a broken winded horse.
When they came out of the water together on
ti e opposite sh re, Laksaui in i sprang forward
with hi-i wonted celerity, but the giantess was
puffing and groaning with her struggles; onward
t e rus'.ied,ai.d before him w as a piece of soft, marshy
ground. It was covered with grass, but it was '
plain to anyone knowing that kind of country, !
that it was a dangerous and treacherous quag
mire. However our Hero was so quick and
light on foot, thai he sprang from clump to
clump where the ground was a little firm, and
skipped over tbe dangerous surface without mis
hap ; whilst the giantess.wbo bad rushed blindly
into the swamp in her rage, and being now
blown and fagged, missed footing on tbe firm
clumps, and at last sank in the yielding treach
erous sticky mud, up to ber great waist. She
floundered, she raged, and struggled in vain;
and only sank deeper ; till the engulphing mud
bad drawn ber down to her arm pits.
And Laksamana on firm ground turned round
to see bis great enemy completely entrapped in
the mud. His men who now joined him, pro
posed to make a firm pathway with sticks and
stones, and clods of eartb, to where tbe monster
was stuck fast ; and then they propocsd to build
up a fixe near by, and roast her to death. But
the Hero turned upon them with scorn, and said:
" o, tnougti sue is a savage mat wouia nave no
mercy on us, she is a woman ; and men should
never put to death a helpless woman.wbatever she
may have done."
He ordered however the firm pathway suggested
to be made through the yieldiug mud ; and when
near the now helpless female, he said to her in
the Malay language: -hy should I not kill
thee? '? And the giaDtess replied : " Thou art
too mighty and too brave, to kill one that cannot
stand up to fight thee, and a woman too. And
now I know, tfiou art of the great race, whom
the wildadiri love, and 1 w ill do thee more good
by letting me lvt- than by killing tue. 1 can
load thee and thy people with treasures." Then
Laksuuiana called to a man to gather a ebampaka
flower : and he, taking the fragrntit blossom in
his hand, held it before the face of the giantess.
who was in great terror, as he placed it near her.
and she cried out : 44 O, Master, do not invoke
Ariuno to slay me ! " '-Not so," said Laksa
mana. I place it before thy eyes, for thee to
swear to me now, that ll 1 will release thee, thou
wilt d no harm ; but will help me, as I believe
thou oust with what I need for my journey to
Menangkakan. And the giantess paid : 'i swear,
I am thv slave.
Then Laksamana ordered hia men to bring
many stones and sticks of dry wood, and clumps
of dirt and grass into the sw amp, so as to make
a larger area of firm standing ground near the
giantess. Then he cut two short poles of -tout
wood; and placed one under each arm ol the
giantess. Tbe men assisted with much lnw or
fear; and even cried out 4 () chief, beware, the
Rakshasba is treacherous, and will kill us all, it
rescued. Let ber die where she is in the mud.'
But Laksamana was angry, and bade them bring
more logs; and be placed the logs crosswise o e
on top of each other, by the side ol the gian-ess.
so that he contrivea a nnn support upon which
to rest ber hands. And then Laksamana pa-sed
cords under her armpits; and by setting up tooe
long poles lashed together at top he made a sort
of derrick over her; and then passing a rope
through a groove on top, made slippery by strips
of slimy bark, he and his men pulled away,
whilst some dug away mud from her flanks; and
she at tbe same time assisting hctsr-lf wiih
her own powerful arms resting on the logo, m a
little while she was got out of the mud and tlu
fearful giantess stood again on firm ground.
To be ccn'ir.ve.
A Peaceful Victory.
It is satisfactory and no less agreeable to
be able to close one's ears for a few mo
ments to the sounds of discord and of
alarm which re-echo from the East and
from the West, and to turn one's atten
tion to the welcohue intelligence that has
lately reached us from Central Europe.
Here human energy and perseverance,
more profitably employed than in perse
cuting Jews, boycotting" landlords, or
intriguing for power in Egypt, have ac
complished a really great work. Italy.
and Switzerland have been connected by
a line of railway, involving in its con
struction the perforation of the Alps by
no less than fifty-five tunnels, one of
which, passing under Mount St. (Jothard,
is upwards of nine miles in length.
Viewed simply as an engineering
achievement the new railway is the
most considerable work of its kind in
the world. Not only is the great tunnel
itself longer than the one under the
Mont Ceuis, but tbe innumerable via
ducts, bridges, galleries, cuttings and
minor tunnels, rendered necessary by the
difficult nature of its approaches, bear
witness to a constructive skill far sur
passing that called fort b by the earlier,
and we may say rival, undertaking. Al
though the St. (iotlmrd Railway is little
more than a hundred miles in length,
the amount expended on the works has
already considerably exceeded four
millions sterling, thT) original capital of
tbe company. J he number of men em
nlovcd during the eleven rears it has
taken to complete the tunnel has been
2.347 on the average, working day and
night. Belgian Sreic.
Narrative of the Bombardment of Alex
andria. We take the following clear and succint
narrative of recent events in Egypt from the
JYew Zealand Herald. 1 he account of th
circumstances which preceded the bombard
ment, will assist our readers to understand
the causes of what, when first heard of here,
appeared to be a rather sudden and uniusti
tied attack, "On the third inst. we published
s cablegram announcing that the Egyptians,
under Arabi Bey, were actively engaged in
erecting fortifications; on the same day Sir
Charles Dilke stated in the House of Com
mons that Admiral Seymour had received
full instructions as to the course to pursue
in every contingency that might arise. In
accordance with these instructions the
British Admiral sent an ultimatum to the
Egyptians, demanding the immediate cessa
tion of tortitying, and threatening, in case
ot non-compliance, to taKe steps to en
force his demand. So immediate reply was
returned to this ultimatum, and the work of
fortifying the h.r; or proceeded. The situa
tion now being considered extremely critical,
the French Government gave orders for an
ironclad fleet to be prepared for service. On
the 6th it was announced th;it Arabi Bey
had replied to the Bntih Admiral, refusing
to admit that he hid any grounds for com
complaint, but next daythe fortifying oper -tions
ce-ised. On the Sth the situation still
remained critical. At the request of the
Foreign Consuls, Admiral Seymour agreed
to give thern twenty-four hours' notice be
fore commencing the bombtrdment, should
it be necessary to open fire. On the 9th
the work of fortifying was resumed by the
Egyptinas, whereupon the British Admrral
notified the Foreign Consuls that the bom
bardment would besin in twenty-four hours
and lso demanded the surrender ol the
forts to the Allied Powers within twelve
hours. On the 10th the forts not having been
surrendered, Admiral Seymour announced
that the bombardment would commence on
the following morning, unless the Egyptians
in the meantime camp ied with the British
demand. It was nisi stated that the French
wo.ild not t ke p rt in the threatened bom
bardment. Everything was prepared for the
opeuing of hostilities; and official relations
with the Egyptian Government were sus
pended. On the same dy an important
statment was made by Earl "Granville in the
Mouse ol Lords.. Ihe Foreign Secretary
insisted upon the wcessity for Ihe surrender
qf the fam and s,jd thejr existence was
AnmTT.A a rv u:,.u .- .
deemed a menace to British interests. On
the 11th the bombardment of the forts
commenced early in the morning- the hour
being variously given as 5 and 7 o'clock
aud was continued until 3 in the afternoon.
The Alexandra Inflexible. Suli an. and i
Superb took part in the enrratretnont. In a !
short time three or the forts were silenced, 1
the shells from the British guns having ex- ;
ploued the magHzmes. The Egyptians re
turned the British fire with spirit, but tieir
guns were no mitch for the terriblf engines
ol destruction on bo-rd the ironclads. On
the 12th, the cannonade was temporarily
suspended on account of boisterous weather,
and on the same day an Egyptian envoy,
carrying a flag of truce, proceeded to the
Alexandra, and requested that negotiations
for the settlement of hostilities might be en
tered upon. Admiral Seymour, in reply,
stated, tht he could not agree to the request
unless the forts commanding th h rbor were
first surrendered. This demand was refused,
and the truce ended. It subsequently tran
spired that, under cover of the truce, the
Egyptian troops had evacuated the forts.
and retired from the city, which had been
set on fire by released convicts, and was be
ing pillaged by bands of marauders, who
had attacked the buropean quarters, and
mass-cred many of the residents. On the
same day, the 12th, a party of blue jackets
swam ashore and blew up the guns on the
forts, the Egyptians offering no resistance
Next day a British force was landed for the
purpose of checking the conflagration, and
putting a stop to looting; and a body of
British marines were stationed at the palace
of Ras-el-Tin to guard the Khedive, who,
after passing through much danger, had
succeed in reachiiur that Dlace. After the
collapse of the Egyptian defence Aram Bey
made his escape from the city in a boat,
having previously, it is said, given orders
that the Khedive should be murdered and
the city sacked. The army dispersed into
the interior without attempting to oppose
the British landing. On the 15th the forts
and city were occupied by the British, and
the other war vessels in the harbor, with the
exception of France and Italy, landed forces
to assist the British Admiral in restoring
Saint Louis' College.
