"Thou luist lifted mo up. '"
" 1 will extol Thee, O Lord !"
says the Psalmist, " for Thou hast
lifted me up and hast not made my
foes to triumph over me. "
"We are accustomed to accomplish
the little undertakings of life by the
work of our own hands guided by
the circumscribed wisdom of our
" Yet to-day we feci that we have
cause to rejoice with the Psalmist,
not because we
of ourselves have
on account of
favor of the
Almighty and His
.Divine approval of our course
when spiteful, jealous, and disap
pointed foes have enveloped our
pathway with snares, and cunningly
laid pitfalls in the paths of our
rectitude that even in doing right
and executing noble works we may
not prosper according to the merit
of our ways. Surely we may extol
the Lord, because he has preserved
us amid a mesh of snares in the
hands of wilfully malignant enemies. ' '
" "Within the halo of the divine
influence and protection, we may
look upon the harmless beasts of
prey that infest the wilds of despair
outside the gates of rectitude and
knowledge ; wo may look in pity
upon those who rave and gnash their
teeth in envy and malice, and smile
in the consciousness of security.
And so, O Lord ! to Thee all praise
The above words and subsequent
remarks were used by the Sunday
writer of our daily contemporary,
under the cloak of religion. They
should be read by everybody. Is
theie one man in this community
who cannot see clearly through
every line and every word that we
have quoted. The " circumscribed
wisdom of the finite miud" of the
blasphemer who makes use of God's
name to show his ill-feeling towards
others ! If it were written by a
Christian with true Christian
feelings, he would remember
that no man is perfect in
God's sight. Has he ever heard of
Christian charity ?
" Spiteful, jealous and disap
pointed foes have enveloped our
pathway with snares, anil cunningly
laid pitfalls in the paths of our
rectitude. We may look
with pity upon those who rave and
guash their teeth in envy and
malice." Are these the remarks
that any Christian should make
about his fellow men ? Can anyone
for a moment believe that such an
article was written by a Christian
for purely Christian motives V No,
the veil is too thin. ' ' First pick out
the beam which is in thine own eye,
that thou may'st be able to see
clearly to remove that which is in
thy brothers eye."

On last Saturday night the resi
dents of Ilonokaa were treated to a
new and somewhat novel exhibition
for this part of the country in the
shape of a genuine Portuguese Fan
dango. The performance came off
in the Court House, although the
custodiau of that establishment, has
strenuously refused on former occa
sions to allow any entertainment
there. The performance was a com
plete success owing no doubt to the
quantity of Hop Beer of extra
strength served up by the caterer.
There was a large attendance of the
beer drinking element interspersed
with a few of the more respectable
part of the community and some

INFREQJENCY OF CRIME.
In the P. 0. A. of the 1-ith inst.
an article appears on the "lufrc
quoncy of Crime" and very laudators-
of our elhYicnt (?) Police, stat
ing that ''fewer arrests wcie mailc
comparatively in Honolulu, than in
any other seaport city in the world"
I cannot see why this statement
should be printed, surely every body
residing here 'and sea captains visit
ing here knows it to be true to their
sorrow how many prisoners have es
caped, how many men ot war-men?
how many are still at large Capt.
Erben of the Pcnsacola said publicly
"he should advise the Department
to prevent U. S. National vessels
coming bore, as the men were in
duced to desert and . could not be
found" no doubt some of the Po
lice are efficient, but there number
is small, very small iu many in
stances the law is interpreted to
mean that a complaint must be
made, by "an outsider" before an
arrest can be made else why arc
not parties arrested who daily vio
late the laws is it not the duty of
the Chief of Police to instruct his
men in their duties? I do not mean

invite the attention of the "aiious
temperance1 societies to these Sec
tions, which, taken in connection
with a recent temperance lecture,
inclines one to think the people of
this burg are very fond of taffy
but this is no joke I appeal to all
old residents for confirmation of
these facts, that there is now more
drunkenness, licentiousness, lawless
ness, and fewer arrests made for
these offeuses, than at any other
time within the past thirty or forty

blame who is? Trnmi.
THE MARTHA RIDEOUT.
Editor Bulletin: The crew of
the Martha Eideout object to pro
ceed to sea in her and have called
for a survey ; if the owners of this
antiquated relic were in the place of
their crew, they would probably ob
ject too. The Martha Hideout is a
vessel that apparently is and has
been for several years unseaworthy ;
she is ono of those old-time colliers,
a class of vessels now happily disap
pearing. She was virtually condemn
ed at Tahiti but was allowed to
proceed to sea after discharging
some of her cargo. Hut few of her
original crew remain and those now
on board demand another survey.
Wc have all seen a fire in a great
city, the crowd eager and excited,
swaying and thronging forward, the
hose man and his comrades ascend
ing in a glory of light from the
burning building, the crash of the axe
the hiss of the water, the blanching
smoke telling of approaching
suppression of the flames, the
cheers greeting the dying light and
the final extinction of the flames.
Yes, we have all seen that, but few
of us have seen struggles at sea
where there were no inspiring
crowds, no well lighted arena noth
ing but inky blackness a leaky ship
and a deluged deck, nothing but
. ceaseless toil, watching and iueffalile
weariness. The pumps that must
ever be kept going, the leak that
could never he gained' on. The
always existing wonder that she was
still nlloat, the unspoken prayer for
line weather, baiely escaping ot last
with life to bo how rewarded?
feted, dined medalcd 1 not exactly ;
you may possibly get your pay or
you may be sent to prison for re
fusing to proceed again in her. We
do not see the sufferings of those at
sea but they occur none the less,
we do not (all of us) know much
about ships, but wo can tell when
wood is rotten and ropes unsound.
If the ship is condemned it means a
loss of a few paltry dollars to the
owners possibly, but if uncondemned
it may mean certain death to the
crew. The gentlemen conducting
the survey cannot be too careful in
their examination and injuries.
The following conversation was
overheard between a passenger on
last Australian Steamer and a gen
tleman from the realms of the
" Golden West."
G. W. " Trees! well now, if
vou want trees, von must s.o to the
redwoods, I've seen eight of us, all
good men, take three days to put
the scarp in one tree, and two more
days to fall it."
Aust. My word, mate, that was
a middling good tree, and it reminds
me of some of the blue-gums we met
on the head-waters of the Yarra.
I was in a surveyor's gang and we
got blocked by a tree, the surveyor
said it had to come down and we
went at it, nine of us. Wc wprked
four days at it and on the fifth morn
ing Ave took a walk round, to see
how the tree looked, on the other
side, and I'm blowcd, sir, if there
'was not another gang there who had
been at work for a week,
had'nt even heard them."
