LECTURE ON GRANT.
The Y. M. C. A. hall was brilli
ant with the American colors for
Major Dane's lecture last evening.
A line was imthureil archwi&c over
the street iloort the bannister was
draped with another, and the hall
was hung with flags enough to re
present the thirteen original States.
They were artistically arranged in
the form of shields and similar de
vices, and mottoes in every direc
tion, with a picture of the dead hero
above the platform, proclaimed the
theme of the lecturer. The pint-
form was screened with a splendid
display of potted plants. Mr. .lames
T. White, Vice-Commander of the
Geo. JW. Dc Long Post, G. A. K.,
vlio. was the decorator, must have
worked-hard to have produced such
effects, at only a day or two's
notice. Besides he sold 85 tickets.
Although not as large as.attended
Major Dane's previous lectures, yet
tlic audience was up to high-water
mark in point of respectability and
intelligence. Dr. Emerson intro
duced the lecturer, who prefaced
the treatment of his subject with a
cordial acknowledgment of tho in
ception given him in this kingdom.
He had travelled a good deal, and
was not given to flattery, but he
could sincerely say that, for warm
heartedness, the hospitality of the
people of Honolulu, and of two
other islands than Oahu which lie
had visited, could not be exceeded.
-His visit had resulted in the acqui
sition of an abundance of material
for presenting American 'audiences
with an account of the many attrac
tions of nature in this group, and of
the work effected for civilization
here during the past hundred years.
Beginning with General Grant as
a soldier, Major Dane sketched the
dark days of successive defeats to
the Union cause, which made up the
first year of the war. Grant, who,
for years, w as thought by his old
comrades of "West Point to be frit
tering away his life in the little
country store at Galena, had re
ceived a clerkship in the "War Olllce
at "Washington. At length he
modestly asked for a command, and
was given a division on the Cumber
laiufKivcr, under General Hallcck.
After waiting in vain for orders to
move, Grant took the situation in
his own hands, and Forts Donclson
and Henry were won. For his
temerity in disregauling the supeiior
authority, he was made a, prisoner
for six days. Then a message came
from "Washington, ' You had better
let that man out." And let out he
was, and he kept moving, a succes
sion of victories marking his pro
gress. Thus fighting away, harass
ed most by the aspersions and op
position ot jealous rivals, and the
s-hiachinations of venal army contrac
tors who profiled by the nation's
trouble, he won the staunch con
fidence and the unswerving support
of President Lincoln and Secretary
Stanton, until he was given charge
of the entiie foiccs of the Union.
General Giant commanded more
men, and conducted longer and
vaster campaigns, than any general
of history. The lecturer gave gra
phic descriptions of the stupendous
- advance, with forty miles front,
across the wilderness ; of the patient
investment of Yieksburg, when
"Grant waited and smoked the enemy
out; of Grant's change of base,
against vthe canons of military
science, from above to below New
Orleans; and of the discouraging
circumstances above which the hero
rose on the eve of his startling order
to the army, "Onto Bichniond."
Grant's senilis lay in his all-com
prehensive grasp of the most expan
sive situations ; in his self-command
and imperturbability ; in his keeping
of his own counsel, and his intensely
practical disposition. No one knew
what was in his mind, and he never
held a council of war in the strict
sense of the term.
As a man, General Grant was
clean-tongued : he was never known
to use profane language, and had a
horror of all indelicacy of speech.
His tenacity of friendship, and his
chivalrous regard for the good name
of, women, had been the means of
'- subjecting him to the fiercest criti
cism that beset his occupancy of the
presidential chair. Major Dune
authoritatively contradicted the
statements that had gone abroad
accusing Grant of intemperance.
During his incumbency of the White
House he was actually a total ab
stainer, turning his wine glass down
at the festive board. "When under
the influence of strong excitement,
tho General's face underwent stait
ling.changes that gave him the ap
pearance of an inebriate, and this
' accounted for tho slanderous reports
ns, to'' Iris-habits. It had been com
- jnonly remarked that Grant was a
great soldier, but no statesman. To
this the lecturer contented hinibclf
witli'opposing the word " Geneva."
The settlement of, tho dilllciilty be
.tween England and the United
States, during his presidency, by a
peaceful conference at Geneva, in
stead of by wholesale slaughtering
of men, was tho greatest triumph of
ii,..,nV,I.i in tViia ppntnrV.

At thCjCpncluslon of the lecture,,
which occupied' about an hour arid a
half in delivery, frequently evoking
applause, Dr. Emerson conveyed
the thanks of the W. 0. T. U. and
the G. A. K. Post, to Major Dane,
for so kindly according them a bene
fit. The receipts were about $150.

nPIIE undersigne'd, a Committee of Di
JL rectors ot the Equitable Life As.
surancc Society of tho United States,
appointed to formulate the views of the
Board on the advantages offered by the
Society to the public, report:
1st The Society ifsues all the approv
cd forms of assurance, including Ordi
nary Life, Endowment and Tontine po
licies. It is immaterial to the Directors
which form of policy is taken by in
2d The Life and Endowment forms
of policy provide for annual cash divi
dends and a surrender x'nlue; are indis
putable after three years and payable
immediately after proof of death.
3d Tho premiums on a Tontine po
licy are the same as on the Ordinary
Lite, but, "while the latter is only pay.
able in the event of death, tho holder of
the Tontine policy has the right to draw
the whole of the reserve anu tho accu
mulated profits in rash at tho end of a
stated period; thus, during his own life
time, after his producing years aro past,
ho can, without any larger premium
than on an ordinary policy, secure these
4lh Experience shows that the icturn
paid in cash on maturing Tontine po
licics nppioximatcs to or exceeds the
amount of premiums paid by policy
holders, so that the average cost of tho
assurance will be only about the interest
on the premiums.
Cth Tontine policies, like others, uro
paid in full in the ovent of death at any
time dining the term of the policy, anu
aio incontestable after tlucc years, and
payable immediately after due pioof of
Cth Experience shows that tho mor.
tallty is lower among Tontine policy
holders, as tho better lives seek this
kind of assurances, which is a consider
able source of profit.
7th Tontine policies will bo mndo
non-forfcitnble under the laws of the
State, if so desired at the time tho as
surance is effected.
8th The Tontine system is fair and
just; its accounts are accurately kept,
scparato from all other business, the
funds judiciously invested and improv
ed, and tho accumulated profits faith,
fully guarded and properly appoitioncd.
0th The Society has since its organ),
xution transacted a larger amount of
now business than any other company,
while its new business for ibo first hull
of tho present year is $l,7.r0,000 larger
than that of the first half of 1881. It
