That the feandwich Islands
owe a great debt of obligation
to the American shipping
lines which have entered their
ports on their voyages to and
from Australia and China
and Japan, none can for one
moment deny or doubt. Com
merce has grown up won
derfully in this way, and
foreign trade been promoted
and established which tended
directly to the importance and
prosperity of the kingdom ;
and the excellent results, of
the creation of the mutually
valuable and desirable reci
procity treaty, the only one
of. that character heretofore
entered into by the United
States, are manifest. As the
nearest and most favored
nation, we should be kindly
and confidently regarded by
those independent islands,
nestling and sheltered under
our broad wing; and any
small request politely applied
for, in all friendliness, ought
not to be slightingly refused
in the haughty spirit of pride
and pique or denied in the
interests of vain bravado and
It is it question of present
speculation whether this ocean
country will eventually drift
in its sympathies and financial I
interests toward America or
Australia. Will the Hawaiian
Hag finally continue to wave
over the lolani Palace as it
does to-day, or will some
unexpected and vital revolu
tion in Pacific politics place
at the masthead the royal
cross or the republican stars
and stripes? The beautiful
standard of Hawaii is some
times thought to have had its
origin in a happy, peaceful
blending of thc banners of
both England and America,
for there are there to be seen
the corner cross of thc one
and the parallel stripes of the
other, harmoniously mingled.
May that choice little land
always- remain a pleasant spot
of socia ble reunion for both
of those great neutral sea
going people !
For over one hundred years that
famous conundrum, "Who struck
Hilly Patterson?" remained un
answered, though it was propounded
to thc world, and SI, 000 reward of
fered for a correct answer. Every
body asked the question, excepting
end men and circus clowns, but for
over ,i century the interrogation
point has stood out in bold relief,
and awaited a reply.
A few weeks since Thc Free JJress
announced that a Mrs. Jenny Covcrly,
of Athol, N. V., had answered the
question which was "heard round the
world," and claimed the reward.
She declared that her father, Ceorgo
Tillerton, was the culprit, but that,
frightened by his audacious blow, he
Hod the country, taking with him a
broken thumb that lie had cracked
against the pate of the burly butcher.
Mrs. Covcrly, now an inlirm old
woman, was believed to be justly
entitled to the reward, but there is
now another claimant in the Held,
and, as Billy only offered a reward
for thc discovery of thc author of
one particular blow, there must be a
mistake somewhere, and a chance
foi two lawyers to get 8500 apiece.
Brockclt & Hock's History of the
City of Alexandria (lfi(i!)-188!l), just
published, fetales that in Haltiinoro
there lived a big, burly butcher who
weighed 2 10 pounds, who could have
knocked slugger Sullivan clear out
of recollection in four rounds. Hilly
used to exercise iiis lists upon his
wife, and' this custom hiul caused
uLBiMjxa.tuntWfliaMiKiiMaanuMji a muff
liim lo have nil extensive acquaintance
ttli the police.
In the City of Richmond, on the
IslofMuy, 1852, the Medical Na
tional Convention convened, and was
in session several days. On tho niglit
of the 1th, Dr. Kol'icrt W. llnxnll
gave a champagne supper to many of
tho members, and they made a night
of it, breaking up about daylight.
The doctors made so mueli noise as
they passed along the streets Hint
Patterson, who had been indulging
in his favoiile pastime of gelling
drunk and healing his wife, rushed
up out of a basement restaurant
under the impression that the police
were coming. "With a roar like a bull,
he rushed at the medics and was
playing a. big game of ten-pins, when
Dr. Albau S. Payne, of Fauquier,
got in n beautiful left on Patterson's
right eye and a right on his chin,
"knocking him fifteen feet, and he
fell like u bullock."
This won't dol Dr. Payne's claim
is disallowed, with costs to complain
ant. That 1S."2 blow was loo late by
nearly a century. Claims, to be
valid, must ante-date 1'atlerson's
funeral, and not more than one claim
will be received from the same in
dividual. As yet, 31 vs. Covcrly has
the inside track and the best of the

lie began to eat witli his knife, as he
had been accustomed, and the young
people smiled. Painee Albert looked
round upon them, as if to say, "Stop
that!" and at once he himself began
lo cat with his knife, and did so to
end of his meal. After dinner one
of the children asked him why he did
so. Prince Albert replied:
"It is well enough for us to observe
the etiquette of the day ; but it is far
more important to avoid insulting
people. I wanted my old friend to
enjoy his dinner, which he could not

lie is accustomed to use his knife,
and it would lie quite dillicult for him
to use the fork instead."
This was genuine politeness. The
world would be happier and better if
there were more of it. Ex.
Sociality is the best corrective of
that serious and prolonged absorption
in business or thought or cares win cli
is so detrimental to many of our
busy people. The rest taken in soli

blazing lire may bo tempting to the
weary toiler, but they do not force
his thoughts into other channels or
compel him to lay aside the train of
ideas that lias for long hours been
work in his brain. Society, on the
contrary, forbids such unwholesome
indulgence. She insists upon a total
change of mind and manner during
her short reign. She calls for vivacity,
variety, imagination if possible, wit
and humor, oi at least a cheerful in
terest in that of others. She banishes
the' accustomed seriousness of mind,
the brooding over familiar topics,
even the earnestness of strong emo
tion. For a short time all these are
forced to give way to the lighter play
of fancy, the excitement of popular
interests, and the development of
sympathy with others upon unfa
niiliai and varied subjects. Thus the
mind is refreshed and invigorated,
unused faculties are brought into
exercise, and the lost balance restored
by a gentle compulsion that no one
desires to resist. JV. V. Almanac.
