The article on "Sandwich Islands Coins"
copied from the Hew York Independent, and
which appears Iu this day's issue, is known
to have been written by Mr. Henry C.
Bowen, one of th most eminent financial
writers of the United States. He therein
expresses the hope that an international
coinage may be adopted, which, although
having diflerent devices aud superscrip
tions, will have the same standards of
weight and fineness and be of the same
value. This idea is not new and has been
expressed by differeut Europeau writers
from time to time, but evidently without
any hope oi a practical realization. It has
remained for Hawaiiau statesmanship to
take the initiatory steps to bring about au
international coinage and to propose a mon
etary convention between the great Repub
lic and this country, which will lead to an
international circulation of American and
Hawaiian coins. There is uo reason why
such a measure should not be carried out,
inasmuch as the same mint produces tbe
two coinages, which are identical in
fineness, weight and their decimal system
end denominational value. Should an in
terchange with Hawaii be established, then
Mexico, in pursuiug'the beneficeut idea of
recipocity, will see the immense advantage
of this international monetary exchange,
and -trive for its adoption. Then the Cen
tral American States will follow suit, and
after them the South Am -rican States, and
as the Dominion of Canada commonly cir
culates the dollar and the cent, it may
come to pass that the " Almighty Do lar,"
whether stamped with the lineameuts of
the Goddess of Liberty or those of the
Lady Sovereign of the S. a," or with the
portrait of the Head of the Imperial House
ofBraganza, or the profile of King Kala
kau, will, under whatever device or super
scription, freely aud interchangably circo

A Leader Wanted-
Our Wednesday confeiiijHrary declares
iu lis last is.siie that It represents "a defi
nite arty.'" Thai a patty 9hould exist iu
a state, representing differences of political
view and contending honorably for the ex
predion and realization of these views, isde
airable and indicates a lively and healthful
state of a couitiioir.v talth. We have had
to deal with much opposition that was bit
ter, mean and unscrupulous, and that
seemed to be animated solely hy personal
spite, aud contending only to give expres
sion to the rancorous spirit of personal hate,
but now a journal that has been devoted to
this personal acrimonious style of discus
sion declares that its lucubrations are all in
the interest of 'a definite party." We are
glad to hear this, because a party represents
wrne kind of organization and conse
quently a leader; and now we beg to be in
troduced to and to have introduced
to the public the leader of this
party. The journal which announces that
there is a party at its back has not failed to
signalize and mark with a dirty animosity
a leader in the administration of the Ha
waiian Government, who .stands out full
and prominent before the people. His acts
are arraigned and his person traduced in
every way to give a marked prominence to
his position. Nov. where is his opponent;
where is the leader that is to restore '"good
Government'' to a so-called misruled coun
try? The opposition party, if there is such
a party, must have a champion, who will
cross swords with the leader of the Govern
ment party. In the tourney, after the de
nunciation of an alleged wrong doer, and
after the trumpets of the heralds have
souuded, the name of the champion is an
nounced, who is teady to run a tilt
a 1' outrauce against the opposing Knight.
Our ioliticat opposition heralds have been
doing nothing else since the day the Gov
ernment leader went into office but sound
the bom of opposition aud clang the gong
of ho tility; and, as iu auoieut Chinese
warfare, throw their stink-pots into the
opposing camp, but as yet no champion or
general of the optositioii party has put in
an appearance. We want to sec the mau
who is going to lead the masses for "good
governmeut," and who is prepared to or
ganise tbe "regeneration of the Hawaiian
Kingdom." He should not be hidden away
in a newspaper office, or among the offices
on the "Beach," or be buried out of sight
upon a plantation, or, perhaps, he touring
abroad. He ought to be here aud known
of all men. He is needed. An avowed
leader will strengthen organization, will
give effect to party discussion and will rally
and animate followers. Then let him be
brought forth; whether he be Alkinson or
Mist or Godfrey or Thrum or Smith or
Brown, or Jones; let him be boldly an
nounced and let him "hang his banner
upon the outer wall." We wait for the
leader of the opposition!
A Daily Morning Newspaper.
In view of the fact that our daily coteui
porary has said that some of ourcomps. are
out on a strike, we think a few words of
explanation are called for. The publishers
aud proprietors of the Daily Pacific Com
mercial Advertiser have felt for some
time past that to properly conduct a daily
morning paper it is absolutely necessary
that some night work should be done. Our
patrons have aright to expect, when they
open their morning paper to find therein
the latest news obtainable. What with the
telephone aud other tire lens transmitters of
information, this commuuity is generally
well posted in the current uews items and
on dits of the day, aud if our forms are
closed at 5 or C o'clock in the afternoon, all
the evening news Luu-t be held over, as a
rule, for twenty-four hours. We have here
tofore had more or less difficulty in getting
compositors to do "night work" in addi
tion to their daily labor. Our manager has,
however, effected au arraugement by which
the forms of the Daily will not be locked
up until 2 o'clock in the morning of each
day, thus enabling un to report matters of
interest that may take place during the
evening. Our composing room is fully j Mr. W. W. Hall announced next months

Fine Imported Stock
Mr. Frauk Spencer of Waimea Hawaii
has sent in for our inspection a number of
samples of wool from pure pedigree South
Down Hoggett Rams. These rams were
purchased by Mr, Spencer at the Smith

An Interesting Lecture-
Professor Pratt's lecture lat Tuesday
night in the Y. M. C. A. rooms on "The
Deaf Mute" M as quite fully attended and
was very interesting. It goes without say
ing that th lecturer was thoroughly at
home with his subject he having for many
years had charge of a deaf and dumb asy
lum in the United States. And is now on
the eve of departure to fill the Presidents
chair at the Columbus, Ohio Institute for
The lecturer commenced by saying that
mention of the deaf is found in the very
earliest histories. But little if anything
was done for the education of tbe deaf and
dumb earlier than the 16th century.
Neither Rome or Greece everfounded insti
tutes for their care. In our day, China and
Japan take but little care of their unfortu
nates. In 1755 the French first founded an
institution for the the deaf mute. In the
United States the first was founded at Hart
ford in 1317. Unfortunately that was called
an "Asylum" instead of a school. The
scholars were looked upon as 'patients"
instead of pupils. .Since lsl7 the number
cf schools has increased until now hardly a
state but boasts of one of these schools.
"Day schools" have been established where
pupils are taught as iu our ordinary schools.
The lecturer read several extracts to show
how forlorn and helpless is the condition of
the person born deaf aud dumb. The task
undertaken by the teacher is very great.
Deaf-mutes may be divided into three
classes. 1st. Those who are born deaf and
dumb, this class embrace about one-haif,
scarlet fever almost the other half. The
second class are those who can hear but
cannot speak, the third those who have
perfect organs of speech but cannot hear.
It does not follow that a person born a
deaf mute cannot articulate. In the great
majority of cases their organs of speech are
the same as in others. Still, if born deaf
and dumb they rarely seem to talk well.
If semi-mutes they can be taught: There
are three methods of instructions: First,
the language of signs; second the use of the
alphabet and writing. The idea th t mutes
spell every word is incorrect. They use
natural signs. The third method is that of
articulation. The custom uow is to teach
those who show any indication of au apti
tude for learning, to articulate.
The lecturer then brought forward a lady
pupil who had been taught iu the United
States. The pupil illustrated the method
of teaching. By signs the lecturer gave
tbe lady to understand that he meant a cat,
dog, cow, etc., which the lady wrote on the
board as rapidly as the signs w re given.
The lecturer explained that the deaf mute
was very eager to learn. His pupil wrote
several short sentences from his signs. 'lie
then asked a few questions which were an
swered promptly. The next step was to
tell the pupils some short stories. The es
sential sentences required were very few.
A few symbols were shown representing
the parts of speech, aud very clearly showed
that a few signs enables the teacher to con
vey a clear idea of his meauiug. The pu
pils.are required to build up sentences from
the basis thus established. The labor is, of
course prodigious. Many of the idiomatic
expressions are extremely difficult to catch.
The great difficulty is to teach the mute
what to use and what not to use, hence very
few acquire a perfect command of language.
The lecturer illustrated the putting in of
parts of speech where they do not belong.
In closing, the lecturer said that in Greece
and Rome the untaught deaf mute was not
held to be responsible for their acts, aud
why should they be? - They know nothing
of their obligations to God or man. Hence
all must feel that the instruction of these
interesting pupils is a task that is, as it
were obligatory on all. There are uow in
tbe United States about 25,000 deaf mutes.
The institution in Ohio with which the
lecturer expects to be connected hus about
500. The mute when brought Into the
the institutions are generally wild at first,
but in a short half hour they become tract-
I able. The whole lecture, or pleasant talk,
was full of interest. At its conclusion a
i vote of thanks was given Mr. Pratt for his
j eutertaiuing and instructive lecture
One of those evei-recurring periods in
business which is called "settliug day,''
but which more properly might be termed
in mining parlance, ''a clean-up," is at
baud. The system of quarterly accounts
that has so long been in vogue here lends a
special interest to many to the last days of
March, June, September and December,
i and brings an immense amount of work
j upon our book-ke pers and accountants. In
"ye olden tyme," when bi-weekly
j steamers were unknown here, monthly
I sailing packets nominally regular, and the
foreign correspondence of merchants a mat
ter that could be deliberated over for weeks,
the getting out of quarterly bills was only a
matter of a day or two with then the largett
' houses." But now the increased volume
of business transactions between the differ
ent islands, and with other countries de
maud much more of promptness of all en
gaged therein, and briugs upon the clerical
force employed in carrying out its details
many more extra hours of labor. These ex
tia hours multiply as the end of the quarter
approaches, and all who keep books, and
scores of accountants, find no time for any
thing but hard work. If it were practicable
to adopt the Sau Francisco plau of having
monthly settlements of accounts here, we
think all would be benefitted. We are quite
sure there would he fewer debts incurred
that must be eventually written off as "bad."
The usual loutiue of business, too, would
be more uniform, aud everything would
move an smoother iu uur busiuess circles.

THE CONCEIT OF CHRISTIANS-
Ms. CftczAx's Lixtcbe-Room Talk, Wfdxks
pat Eve.. Jock 20th, 1SS3.
liy chxiiug tlie topic. I do not, for a moment,
iuUni to i&tiiaate that Christians are mrre
giv?n to conceit tlin other men. On the con
trary, the true Christian will obey God's word,
and "not think of himself mora highly than
ought to think."
Rat there is one direction in which Chris
tians are peculiarly liable to become conceited,
Tiz: iu regard to their work. We are apt to get
on the wrongj side of oar labor the self-side,
and not the Christ-side. A Christian prays long
and earnestly for a certain worthy object; he
gives it his time, money, anxious thought, in a
woid himself. Envious critics 9ay hard things
aboutim, sneer at his self-denial, and insinu
ate that he expects to make a gain cf all this
ap-"treat sacrifice. Now the poor human nature
of - ach a Christian hardiy fails to keep an ac
couat of these things. The man turns around
and pats himself ou the back and says, " How
much have I done!'' Aud then he commiserates
himself, " Why should I be so unjustly treat
ed? '' Now, there never was a person who did
anything worth doiir, who did not get uure
than he gave. This is pre-eiuineutly true fu all
moral and spiritual woik. No mnu ever gave
away a dollar, iu the right spirit and from a
right motive, but that dollar yielded him com
pound interest. No man ever watched with the
sick, bore burdens, shouldered cares and repoi
sibilties, who could not truthfully say, the hap
piness it gave me moi than repaid mei "
Take a mother, a ti n.- mother comes nearer re
peating the life of Chiist than any other person.
Hers is a constant lif- of self-denial. And the
child; however obedient aud loving, can never,
in kiud, make any udequate return. -But 'the
little one dots muke return. It leads that
mother into a Itryeiiess of heart, a nobility of
nature, unknown before. She who takes a child
into her heart is a uobler, truer, better worm
than ever before. Your Sunday Schools class of
unruly boys, if you are faithful to tlieiu, will
teach you more than you can teach them: they
will give you more than you cau give them, j
They will teach you patience, and self-control,
and Christ-likeness. There is no person in the
world who so uniformly takes his pay as he goes
along, as he who does good at the cost of his
own convenience and expense.
If we are tempted to be vain of our work, how
may we re.sist and conquer that temptation.?
Well, think how little, after all, you hive done,
in comparison with what you might auk ought
to have done. Compare your work witb the
work of some noble, zealous, Christian, no bet
ter gifted of God thau yourself; measure your
life of sacrifice by Christ's one day of sacrifice.
Remember that every truly great man is un
conscious of his own greatness. Iu au iutervi w
with General Grant, recently, Joseph Cook
asked him his opinion of the world's great men
Bismarck, Gladstone, Gortschakoff and Gam
betta. He seemed," says Mr. Cook, "utterly
unconscious as he thus talked of the world's
great men, that he was one of the greatest of
them all.'' So it always is. Greatness does not
pose before a mirror to see how great it is. It
does not fall down and worship itself. Its
thought is too much absorbed iu its work to re
member self. It is only as a man forgets him
self that he ever touches the hearts and helps
There may be dauger of error in the opposite
direction; don't think it uecessary, iu order to
escape seeming ruin, that you go about depreci
ating and decrying yourself aud your work, and j
advertising your humility. True humility is !
conteut with sterling manhood and right self
assertion. Self-depreciation is only another
form of vanity, and one of its most offensive
Reading for Sunday.
44 Remember the Sabbath day to keep it
holy." For centuries this mandate has been
respected by the true followers of Christ. . Oue
day out of the seven is ueeded for rest from the
toils of the week. But by the word " rest '' we
would not uecessarily imply that this day
should be given over to sluggishness or idleness.
There is rest in diversion, rest in reflection, rest
in anything that calls new or seldom used
faculties of the mind or body into operation.
Yet are we to understand that by resting on the
Sabbath ve fulfill the requirements of the pre
cept, 44 Kemember the Sabbath day to keep it
holy." Yes, for how can a day be kept holy
more entirely than by recuperating the faculties
which the Creator has given us for the con
summation of the duties of life ? During the
laboring days of the week our minds are usually
absorbed iu busiuess occupations. When the
Sabbath comes, it is fitting that we should lay
aside tht distracting and often aggravating
worldly thoughts that fill us with auxietv, and
turn to a contemplation of Christ and the condi
tions of our souls which we generally have little
or no opportunity to think of during the week
There is great rest iu the thought of heaven and
heavenly things ; there is consolatiou in the
prospect of ending this fretful earthly career
with the hope of a bright immortality shining
hefore us. Iu the promises that religion give
we should seek for true rest. This we may io in
public or in private, it matters not which, if we
are devout aud sincere in our endeavor to draw
near to the gTeat fountain of life, and peace,
and love. The city of Honolulu is blessed with
many public temples where the word of God is
faithfuiiy presented every Sabbath to those who
desire to be led towards the divine haven cf
eternal lest. Yet there is nothing imperative
about attending at public worship. We may
keep the Sabbath holy in our own houses, by
our own self-consecratiou to pure thoughts and
righteous study of the imperishable Word. We
should permit uo ungenerous feeling of unchris
tiau animosity, hate or envy to enter our breast
and ullow none of the unworthy jealousies and
oppositions that animate us in our days of strife
to coctamiuate the hallowed Sabbath. But
rather we should strive to forgive and forget
even as we expect to be forgiven by our Father
in Heaveu. Implacable hatred and acrimony is
not creditable ; much less is it Christiau. We
are ever liable to err, but knowing this, we
should be always ou our guard against error.
How peaceful, harmonious, aud delightful our
beautiful Island cupital ought to be ou the Sab
Lath day ! Yes, and on all days if Christian love
truly sheds its warmth aud light through our
hearts, tempering our every action with fraternal
concord and religious unity.

The Prisoner on Board tho Ejscx-
Frederiek W. Kerr, the prisoner on board ihe '
U. S. S. Esax, ii.-w lyiuij in th harbor of Hon- :
olulu, is au embezzler of no sinall cuhbre. He
was the ccufidmtial clerk of Messrs. Trer-iou, ;
Keen, fc Co., a leading hanking Irnnse of Chi
cago, 111. Eatl v iu F bi nary of this yeiir he j
suddenly absconded, and it was then assertAiu- '
ed that he had ctHiimitted a series of rohbeiiesj
nd defalcations of various descriptions against j
Lis employers and clients ; the whole amounting j
to no less thau about $150,000. Immediately :
after his dissappearance alarm was sent to the !
Pinkerton Detective Agency at New York City, 1
and descriptions and photographs were sent to ;
all parts of the world, but for some timo no '
trace of the embezzler coaid be found About a
uionth elapsed aud the detectives were unrsiait-
ting in their efforts to apprehend him. At
length it was ascertained that a mau auswennj
the description of Kerr had taken passage :
from New York to Aspinwail under the i
Uame of Alfred Perrot. This clue was
promptly followed up. Mr. Julian ou of the
most able and as it has proved successful and
sagacious of United States detectives was at
ouce se:.t to follow up tile tujitive. It was
plausibly prs.-umtd ihat Keir would seek a toreiu
couutry with which the United States has no ex
tradition tieary. Detective Julian, acting upon
.this theory, soon got onto the direct trail of his
game. He found that at Panama Kerr had
again adapted a new alias but by the
most indelatigHble uisd yet cautious investigation
the adventurous and active detective was enabled
to find traces that determined the course he
should pursue. After undei going much hard
slap in the search the detective fell sick at
Payta. but his sound, yet not over-robust con
stitution ioou got the better of the disease, and
at length he proceeded to Cullao wheie he soou
found the object of his long and ardu
ous chase. At one of the leading hotels
of tbe capital of Chile, Kerr was living
under the alius xof Stewart. Detective Ju
lian had si)ie difficulty in rccoguuiug the
tbscouder from the photograph at first, but he
managed to work into th confidence of Kerr by
adroitly proffering friendship, and obtained con-
j fessions establishing beyond a doubt the ideniity
j of the so-called Stewart and Kerr. The ueos
I sary papers were all inad out iu due course i
' time for the arrest of the embezzler. Meanwhile
1 Julian kept up his connection wild
Kerr. When everything was iu readiness
he was arrested and brought ou board the Essex,
I whichhas orders to transport the detective and his
; prisoner to San Francisco. Mr. Julian was
especially instructed not to attempt to biiiig
J Kerr across the isthmus of Panama, as ouce

Kerr is a well-shaped, intelligent and fine-looking
man, of sandy complexion aud fair regular
features. He would not be taken for a criminal,
but ou the contrary would give the impression of
purity and honesty. His ill-gotten gains were
mostly disposed of when he was arrested. Dur
ing the first few days of his confinement he was
completely "used up." He could not tat or
drikk hardly at all aud was thrown into a fever
Time aud good care, however, brought him
around aud in all probability he will soon be
back in Chicago, where Mr. Julian is ordered to
escort him, there to confront his accusers aud
undergo the penalties of justice.
Detective Julian is a most pleasant, amiable
ge'itlemau, rather under medium height and
rather delicah ly built. But his eye is keen aud
peuttratiug, although tull of cougeuial expres
sion. He wears a full beard and is
veVy attentive to his prisoner. If Kerr
honld escape here it would pio'-ably be
very hard to rearrest hnu, but, indeed, there is
no danger of that, with such a cartful expert
aud vigilant guardian as the detective, who is to
receive $10,000 for his services when Kerr is

The President of the Board f Health re
ceived letters by last mail per Suez, inform
ing him that theemiuent German Professor
A mini has been engaged by the Humboldt
Foundation, under the auction of the Im
perial German Government, to visit the
Hawaiian Kingdom, with a view to make
a thorough scientific investigation of the
disease of leprosy. We informed our readers
some time ago, that our Government on
being notified of the purpose of the German
authorities, aud being invited toco-operate,
promptly responded, an I agreed to bear
half the expenses of the German Professor's
visit and investigation. Hi preparations
are all made, and it is quite likely that he
may arrive by the July mail steamer. The
Professor brings with him a microscope of
the highest magnifying power that can be
procured in Europe, and as the President
of the Board of Health has ordered an
apparatus for instantaneous photography,
we feel assured scientific skill combined
with the most efficient appliances for ob
servation will afford tin opportunity for
having much light thiown upon the causes
aud effects of a malady, which, though
afflicting us especially, engages the atten
tion of enlightened and philanthropic people
Apathy or Ignorance-
The report reaches ns, through the M.trshal of
the Kingdom, ot a rathe! rtmaikable case of
apathy or stupidity on the part ot soai natives.
It seems thut abjut the first uf tnis month a
native boy nuuied Keouiiiiiii, 11 ytais ot ajje,
living near Hilo, was playing with a loaded guu
which was iu the bousej and an eider brother
tried to take it away from him. Iu tbe struggle
the gun went oil', aud the cLur'eof shot wouaded
the boy on the side of ihe hea.l, owi tbe left enr.
No one called iu a doctor, nor had Sheriff Sever-
euce any knowledge of tiif accident until the
11th, when, hearing something of the matter, he
went with a doctor, and found th- boy beiii
buried. He then had the wound examined and
investigated the circumstance which were as
we have related tlitu. TLeie was uo formal in-
tpuest held, as the Sheriff was satisfied thut the
wound was purely accideufil. The fact remains,
nevertheless, that the bov's hie was lost, prob-
atiiy, through his not hnvuig medical help, and
are to be censured f jr liut cainn
We have been lequetted by u lady of our ac
quaintance to say thut the tulie roses she so
carefully planted ou a grave iu the ceiu--tei
have been carried off bodily. S.jiue h jule has
i robbed a grave, probably i..r gum, hoping to
j sell the plants. We cannot imagine that a
heart Was so callous as to permit its uwuer to
wteal such flowers, could experience a single
emotiou ot pleasure at seeing theiu growing.
Hence we conclude that the theft was for filthy
lucre. Some meu will do anything for that.

In the matter of proof of the wiil of Her
Highness Ruth Keeiikoiaui, before the Chief
Funeral of the late Ptincess Ruth-
The futu-ral of Her late Koyal Highness
the Princess Kuth Keeliknlani took place
from her late residence Kaaknpuu Hale at
2 o'clock p. m. List Sunday. Shortly after
1 o'clock a multitude i f people began to as
semble from every quarter of th city.
Some gathered in Knima square, and others
took up stations along the roadsides where
the procession was to pas. At Kaakopua
Hale the relatives and friend. of the !
deceased assembled and promptly at 2
o'clock the colli n containing the remains of
the late Princess was borne from the mautet
room of the Hale by pall bearers wearing
feather cloaks, and placed in a catafalque
appropriately draped and decorated. The
coffin was made of koa aud kou wood upon
which there was a silver plate shaped like
a shield with the inscription:
Ka Mea Kiekie,
Kuth Keehkolani Keuuoluui Kauahoahou,
Kaikamahiue a Pauahi a me Kckuauaoa,
Hauau ma Honolulu. Oahu, Pepeluale 9, b'2C,
Make ma Kailua. Hawaii. Mei 21, 1Ss3.
Around this inscription a wreath of
uiaile and Kukui leaves and ferns was en
graved. The catafalque wasdrawn by over
oue hundred men. In Kmniu street the
procession was formed under the direction
of His Kxeelleucy the Governor of Oahu
and Maui, and moved to the Royal Mauso
leum in the fodowiug order at 3 o'clock:

As the procession moved along through
Beretauia and on Nuuanu street it pre
sented a very imposing spectacle. The rain
Saturday night had laid the dust nicely but
there was no mud. Nearly the entire dis
tance from Emma street to the Mausoleum
gates groups of spectators lined the road.
The catafalque with a guard of honor Ka
hilis and pall bearers appeared very stately.
The Kahilis were many in . number and of
several varieties, some being very gorgeous.
The line of soldiers, bands and carriages waa
almost a mile in length. Wheif the pro
cession arrived at the gates opening into the
grounds surrounding the Mausoleum the
crowd was so great and eager that it re
quired the exertions of the Deputy Marshal
and several policemen to keep the masses
from encroaching upon it. A portion of the
police force was distributed on either side
of the gate-way. The U. H. S.. Mniines of
the Hartford and the Hawaiian troops filed
through, and took up -a position makai of
the Mausoleum; the Honolulu Fire Depart
ment occupying a po.-itiou on the Ewa side.
The catafalque containing t he remains, and
followed hy the carriages of the chief
mourners aud others, wasdrawn before the
entrance to the Mausoleum when the coffin
was removed and, after prayer by the offi
ciating clergyman and a dirge hy the choir,
consigned it to the vaults. Then the spec
tators began to depart and the procession
returned and dispersed. All the detailsof the
solemn occasion were appropriately carried
out. The music by the bauds was exceed
ingly wed selected and well executed.
After the last sad rites the lemains of the
late Princess repose with those of her an
cestors. Diplomas and Cetiiieateg.

Mk. Eijitok: The lolluwiu quotutioua from
the work of If. Vandyke Carter ou leprosy, will
I think prove interesting reading.
''Rules for the treatment of Lepers, by Dr.
"The patients selected for treutinent should b
in an early stage of the disease, that ia to Ky,
should uot have been suffering froui leprosy
more than two years and only those should be
chosen iu whom the disease ih entirely confined
to the Hkiu, or has very slightly invaded th
mouth. If the laiyui has been attuAed, and
in uther respects the patient is eligible, he
should be distinctly informed, 'if treated at all,'
that it is only with a view to amelioration, aud
not to cine, that his case is undertaken. So far,
uo case has been absolutely cuied in which th
interior of the mouth or the larynx had been
invaded. The tighter the case the uioir eay
aud rupid the cine. I. nth aimet-thetic and
tubeiculous cases aie eligible " "
After directions tin treatment, follow thv
"The ti 'effluent debciil'iil above has been
adopted by me at Tuuidal, und hua in every on
of my cases more than answtred my expecta
tions. "All the casea have rapidly improved ; on
was so uearly cured aftei five months treatment,
but the latest news received fiom them ia of the
most encouraging description."
11. II. Pakewell, M.D., . edicid Officer of
Health, etc., to the Colony of Trinidud.
"My opinion of Dr. Betiupetthny'H treatment,
after a further ti iul of it, remain substantially
as it was expressed in my thiid report.
Its rapid and thorough action when tb
disease has uot attacked the mucous mtmbiane
of the nose eud .ii onth is unquestionable, und
its power of improving the condition of much
more advanced cases, and arresting the progress
of the disease has received additional confirma
tion. I have a case now under treatment in
London, which is in .uch a state that I only
undertook its treatment ou the distinct under
standing that I could uot give any hope of a
cure, and wheie all I expeel is temporary
amelioration ; and yet such is the effect of even
a simple application, that the patient eauuot b
convinced that he is incurable."
The above quotations are mude from a work
bearing on its title page :
" Published under sanctiou of th Secretary
of State for Iudia,' and printed by th Queen'
Sandwich Inland Coins.
The King of tb Sandwich Inlands baa made
up his mind to adopt the silver eoiua of th
United States ns Ihe currency of those islands.
Having no mints to produce the coinage, he has
entered into an arraugement with this Govern
ment to furuiah the coins, which, in size, weight
and fineness, are to be the equivalent of our dol
lars, half-dollars, quuiicr-dollars, aud dimes,
with his image and superscription stamped
thereon. The coins me to bo struck at th
Philadelphia Mint. The Oovernrueut of th
United States does the work fur the King of th
Sandwich Islands simply us an accommodation
at his urjent request. This is rather unusual
business for the (Jovei ument ; but w sew uo
serious objection to it, provided the elpens
thereof is paid by the Sandwich Island Govern
ment. The enterprise Will dispose of a small amount
of our silver, and this will be better thau to coin
silver dollars for hse in this countiy where they
aie not wanted for any practical purpose. I'her
will also be some convenience to bo.h countries

uoiAjuutions and value. ::.o fur .m it

mercial nations would areo to a system of c
age by which their coins, whatever might
tueir names in the respective countries, shoul
be assimilated in bulk, weight, and fienet,s,
ami, hence, in value, the exebauea of th
world would be greatly facilitated. We bhv
hat ultimately, the general common-bense of
the nations, iu the light of its great convenience,
will bring about this desirable change. Th
