THE LIFE AND TIMES OF MRS.
It is with the greatest interest we
' liaVe perused this book, treating, as
it does, of the life of the wife of one
1 of the pioneer missionary band to
tljetc islands. It is seldom indeed,
iti the early written history of a
- country that ;nuch can bo drawn
from authentic documents. Too
often the impoitnucc of these writ
ten evidences of occurrences is im
, der-estimaled, and they arc lost or
destroyed before their value and in
' ,,lcrcht becomes felt. Still oftcjier the
early explorers or' settlers of a
country have no thought of the rc-
i cord 'they arc to leave behind them,
and never make any preparation for
'".the history yet to be written.
' " "With Mrs. Thurston the case was
different. The following extract
from her preface will show what she
. has done: "In the very commencc-
.jnent of missionary life, my husband
strongly ndvised me to picscrve a
coin' of inv letters, and save me a
blank book for the purpose. Thus
I commenced, and under his influ
ence, formed a habit of so doing. I
.have, by the preserved copies of my
letters, noted in their circuit all the
hva of my pilgrimage."
' So that here we have spread be
fore its not only the valuable remin
iscences of a contemporary of the
early years of the introduction of
Christianity into these islands, but
also the historic evidence of con
Mrs. Thurston's book, as may
naturally be infened, relates chiefly
to her own experiences, but it alo
, contains valuable historic data and
allusions in almost every chapter.
It begins with the lccord of the
year 1810, in which year Mrs.
Thurston married and came out to
these islands as a missionary's wife.
On the 18th September of that
j'car her cousin, Win. Goodcll, came
to her and asked: " Will Lucy, by
becoming connected with a mission
ary, now, an entire stranger, attach
herself to this little band of pil
grims, and visit the far distant land
of ObookiahV" After five days of
consideration she was intioduced to
'Mr. Thurston, at' her father's house,
xincl the followiug day bho accepted
him, anil on October 12th they were
married, shortly after setting out
as members of the pioneer com
pany of Hawaiian missionaries.
It is not necessary to specify the
.discomforts of the voyage out or the
fears which beset them it sulllecs
to say th.it they lauded safely and
found the islanders ready to receive a
new relitrion, luwiii" but a fuw
months before deslioycd the old
one. The first incident of their
mission Avas the formation of a hew
ing circle, to provide a diess for the
(.hicen Dowager Kalakua.
Shortly afterwards this pioneer
band was separated, Mr. and Mr.s.
'Thurston and one oilier family slay
ing at Kailuii, the others going on to
Honolulu. Now began the domestic
privations and public discomforts
which invariably attach to those who
"llnnu, nnd ciifen, nail all the cultured
CimvciileiieeH, and del lento delight
Of iiiu MK-icty, in the peat can u
Of mini's wtluillon."
une oi mo duel ililliculucs was
Atihc i jury to health from living in
ftho grass hgufccs, built in native
lylo. Finally Mr?. Thurston pei
juuujed. the iviug to allow thcui to
build the lirst woodeir homo eve?
erected on the itlaado, Another
dllllculty was tho opposition of the
white men who were already on the
islands, and who spread the most
ridiculous stories of tho missionaries'
For twenty years did Mr. and
Mrs. Thurston labor in tho islands,
bringing up their children free from
contact with the, then, unformed nnd
vicious native character, and then
Mrs. Thurston took them with hel
lo tho Slates,to be educated. From
that time her strictly missionary
work may be said to bo over. She
still continued in tho field, but her
life work was already done, her
name graven on the roll of the carn
rst Christian civilizcrs of this King
Her work becomes more of a re
cord of herself and family deaths,
births, marilagcs, illnesses, "all
that human (lesh is heir to," until in
1870 it was said of her "lhat she
had finished her earthly caiccr,"
and she went lo the presence of her
Maker, taking with her the record
of a long and usefully spent life.
One .of the most important points
in the book is her testimony to the
healthiness of these islands. Hut we
will not infringe any longer on Jicr
story. Go and read it yourselves,
and if you leavq .it, filled yitli one
half of the pleasure and information
we have received from its perusal
you will bo satisfied.
The ladies of Fort street gac
another of their pleasant little' re
unions on Thursday afternoon and
evening, for the, purpose of raising
funds for the Gospel Temperance
work ,oil these islands. To the itn
iwpassioncd observer (that is, to
anyone who was not in search of a
freeze) the scene was charming,
bevies of young ladies and matrons
flitting about to provide the refresh
ments ordered nt their tables, knots
of gentlemen discussing the impor
tant probldm of the evening wheth
er to seek ice cream or safety in
flight, and the ceaseless friendly
causerlc from group to group. Qliit
to the seeker after knowledge in the
shape of lumps of coolness the scene
was just a little too busy at times.
The tables were crowded and as fast
as one party would get through ano
ther would take its place. But ice
cieani was not the only refresh
ment dispensed, delicious sherbet,
fragrant coffee, lemonade, cakes
and sandwiches were also on the bill
During the evening Miss Castle
and Mr. Yarndlcy discoursed sweet
strains to such .is could near enough
to listen in the bustle and loud ap
plause greeted their thorough and
At n little, after 0 the guests be

had contributed their quota to a
good work and received full value in
SHELLING THE NIAGARA.
At 10:10 a.m. yesterday, the first
shot was fired. An anxious crowd
had been waiting foi it since 0 :30,
and all the Jurymen had to go to
Court without seeing the fun. The
first shot was fioin the rilled
pivot gun and went over the vessel.
The best shots were Hied by Lieut.
Nelson in person. The 1 1th shot
was from the 8-inch rilled gun and
went through the mainmast. Alto
gether 42 shol'i were fired, being (5
rounds each from 5 broadside D-inch
smooth bores and 2 pivot guns, one
firing an 8-inch and the other a 00
lb. shell, ) shots were afterwards'
fired from a 23-inch rilled gun from
the poop. On board the Alaska it
is repotted that 0 shots struck the
vessel. The fuses used for the fl
inch sheik were Navy 7 second lime
fuses. Those for the pivot guns
were percussion fuses. Dr. McGrow
had the honor of firing tho last 3
ineli shot. The range- was from
1,700 to 1,500 yards, the actual
mcasiiied distance being 1,0313.
A parly consisting of Messrs. C.
B. Wilion, A. W. Caller and J.
Dodd went on board tho Niagara
immediately tho firing was over, and

Later in .the afternoon by courtesy
of the officers of the Alaska scveraj
of our leading citizens and press

to inspect the amount oi damage

seem to have accomplished the Ob

Wnii.r. on board the Niagara yes

the performances of a fine water
dog. At the command of its owner
it leaped into tho sea from the bul
waiks, and catching hold of the end
of a rope with its tcotli was assisted
to walk up tho side on to the deck.
Again, 'a pieco of wood was thrown
over, the dog leaped after it, secured
it in its mouth, and ihmlly was
drawn on boaul by its putting its
fore feet in the loop of a rope
thrown lo it, and being assisted qu

was Hat for miles and barren of
