IT IS THE WHITE MAN'S CAPI
TAL. There is, comparatively speaking,
an immense amount of capital in
vested in this little country in
business, buildings, sugar planta
tions, sugar machinery, rice planta
tions, etc. Probably no country of
similar area and population sur
passes it in this particular. The
great bulk of this capital is owned
by the white man more than the
casual visitor or superficial observer
generally supposes. Take away the
white man's portion of the capi
tal invested, and the balance remain
ing to the native Hawaiian and the
oriental races will be small indeed.
AUlinnnrh tho rice nlantations arc
almost entirely operated by China
men and nominally owned by them,
it is the white man's capital that
stands behind them and keeps them
going. The muscle and industry
of the Celestial have convcitcd
thousands of acres of swamps into
fields of grain, but muscle and in
dustry could have effected compara
tively little without the support of
the white foreigner's capital. The
same prop is placed beneath most of
those fine brick structures being
erected on the site of the late great
fire. A large amount of money is
being expended by Chinamen in the
restoration of what the lire destroyed,
but they have to rely largely upon
the white man for it. Jf dependent
solely on their own means, the
restoration process would be an ex
tremely slow one. Their trade
operations are also chiclly fed from
the same source. In short, the
business, the agriculture, the perma
nent improvements, and almost
everything of the country requiring
money, arc largely very largely,
almost entirely dependent on the
white man's capital. This is an as
sertion easily verified by anyone
caring to lake the trouble of investi
gate. And yet there are people here
stupid enough to think, or say, that
the country could get on swim
mingly without tlie vliite man and
bis coin. It can't be done.
l'resciit Condition of the Jla
ivniiitn. The pastor, Rev. J. A. Cruzan,
presided at the Port Street Church
monthly conccrl last night. The
main feature of the occasion was a
paper by Chief Justice Judd, on the
-present condition of the Hawaiian.
The paper, although not professing
to deal exhaustively with the sub
ject, has the merit of coining from
one whose thorough knowledge of
the Hawaiian his language, his
habits of thought and life, his entire
"character constitutes him an au
thority. The Hawaiian's moral and
religious nature was the particular
phase of the question dwelt upon.
He (the Hawaiian) is naturally dis
posed to believe in the supernatural,
and finds no dilllculty in subscribing
to the miracles of the Scriptures.
He never troubles himself about
licnan, Straus dr Spencer. Tho
writer had never known a Hawaiian
to be a professed infidel. The Ha
waiian is, greatly interested in Sun
day School exhibitions, but has
little idea of the importance of his
moral life being consistent with his
religious professions. Ho is strongly
averse to incun ing enmity lor the
sake of principle. He is charac
terized by hospitality and a readi
ness to forgive. The most baldened
criminal is received on coining out
of jail as if nothing had gone wrong.
Tho Hawaiian is so impressionable
that he could be easily led back to
idolatry. Ilnwniians arc now on
their trial as n civilized and Chris
tian community, and how they will
stand the test is haul to predict.
SUPERSTITION AMONG SAILORS,
i. As most peoplo are well aware a
Beajnan.'s life is anything but an ap
parently pleasant one, and has a
peculiar monotony attached to it,
calculated to inspire him with an
extravagant amount of thought,
honoring on the supernatural.
The following narrative is penned,
not for its authenticity, but simply
to show to what a high degree- of
imagination Bailors' minds in general
It was some seven or eight years

"Liverpool to Salt Francisco, on
board of nn Knglisli ship, wo had
just crossed the equator and entered
the waters of the mighty Pacific.
The sun had gone down and everj
thiiic was Bllli, save an occasional
splash created by tho motion of the
vessel and the officer's mnrtial
tread, as ho paraded the poop deck.
Tho watch had just been relieved,
and nothing being required of us
we congregated "under the poop
deck, vhich extended three or four
feet forward from the cabin bulks
hend, and began the invariable yarn
a sailor delights in. After snugging
ourselves down, one of tho oldest
began the following:
Well, boys, what I'm going to
tell von now hannened Just as I'm
going to relate it, and its solid
truth. It was on board of the ship
Hope. Perhaps some of you have
seen or heard of her. Anyways I
happened to bo one of her crew
when this experience befell her, and
what's more, I was the principal
It happened in the North Atlantic.
"We had just scudded clear of one
of her famous b'isters when the
thing occurred. It was my turn at
the wheel, and I had just spun her
round once or twice and was steady
ing her on her course, when all at
once, I was startled by the appear
ance of a delicate looking hand
stretched across the face of the
compass and the first finger pointing
to cast-north-east, and on one of the
other fingers, a brilliant diamond
ring was displayed. Boys,' I just
let go that wheel and dropped all of
a heap on the deck. My hat, which
had strings fastened under my chin
to keep it from blowing off, just
raised itself under the pressure of
my hair, until 1 was nearly choked.
Well, I cut it loose and got things
shipshape, when I heard the skipper
coming on deck to see what tnc
noise was, he meant when I dumped
myself. I told him as well as I
could and pointed to the hand which
was still visible and pointing in the
same direction, namely: east-north-cast.
He looked and looked and
told me I was dreaming. I politely
begged to differ irom him, and after
a lot of questioning and a consulta
tion witli tho chief officer, ho de
cided to alter her course, which he
did. "We kept her cast-north-east
for a couple of days, and the skip
per was just thinking about putting
her back on her old course, when a
vessel was reported in sight, and
sure enough there she was. The
captain saw thiough his telescope
that 'lie had distress signals flying,
so we changed our course again and
weie soon alongside of her. She
proved to be the French brig Ivan
hoe, bound from Odessa to New
York. Everything went well on
board till they encountered a hurri
cane of ureat violence, whioh dam
aged her so that she became water
logged. The captain aud both officers were
washed overboard and lost, the cap
tain leaving behind his wife and two
children, who were making the voy
age with him.. The poor wo
man wont frantic with grief and
fell into a swoon, which lasted
until the time we secured her
and the crew. After she recovered,
which she quickly did under our
care and treatment, we related the
circumstances connected with the
rescue of her and the crew, and my
expciience at the wheel, She showed
us the diamond ring which I at once
recognized, and frankly admitted
that in her swoon she had recognized
the appearance of our vessel, and
described the appearance of the man
at the wheel, which coincided with
myself and the results already made
known. A. W. II.
The Betrothal of Murie
On the 22nd of November, 1809,
the Due de Cadorc, then Minister
for Foreign Affairs at Paris, wrote
to the Due de Vicence, French Am
bassador at St. Petersburg, to ask
whether Napoleon's proposal for the
hand of the Emperor Alexander's
sister, the Grand Duchess Anne,
would be favorably received. An
immediate answer was required. At
that date messengers took a fort
night to reach St. Petersburg from
Paris ; tho answer to the dispatch of
tho 22d had not, consequently ar
rived when, on the JiOth of Novem
ber Napoleon's divorce was finally
settled. On the ICth of December
Josephine held her last reception at
the Tuilerics, which she was about
to (piit forever. "While waiting for
their carriages a remarkable conver
pation took place between M. de
Scmonville, who was then high in
favor at court, and M. de Floret,
one of tho Secretaries of tho Aus
trian Embassy, in which it transpired
that the hand of the Archduchess
Mario Louise would not bu refused
should Napoleon ask for it. This
news was at once communicated to
tho Emperor and, as the answer
from St. Petersburg was delayed,
negotiations were broken off, and on
the 7th of February, 1810,' Princo
Schwarzenbcrg signed the contract
of marriage with tho Archduchess
Mnrie.Louiso at tho Tuilerics, and a
messenger was at once dispatched
to Vienna. Marie Louise consented
with resignation rather than pleasuie,
and when Count Mcttcmich, then
Minister for Foreign Affairs, came
to ask her consent, her first question
was: " "What does my father desiro'r"
"The Emperor," answered Mat
tcrnich, "has ordered mo to ask
your Imperial Highness' opinion
with regard to an event upon which
the future of his very existence
dopends ; but do not ask what the
Emperor wishes j tell me frankly what
you wish yourself." UI only wish
what my duty commands," answered
Marie Louise. "When it is a ques
tion regarding tho welfare of tho
Umpire, yon must consult that and
not my will. Beg my father to obey
his diity as a sovereign, without
consideration for my personal feel
ings." When this answer was
brought to the Emperor he showed
no surprise, but said: "My consent
to this marriage will at least secure
a few years of peace and prosperity
to my unhappy country, which I
must employ in endeavoring to heal
its wounds. I owe myself wholly to
the welfare of my people, and there
fore I must not hesitate." The
THE BRAZILIAN GIRL.
Girls arc sometimes married so
youngin Brazil that the' become
mothers at twelve or thirteen years
of age. A certain count was mar
ried to his cousin when neither had
yet reached their teens, the little
bride being only seven years of ago
when the ceremony was performed.
This was done by the parents to in
sure their fortunes remaining in the
A girl is never permitted to go
out, not even to church, unless
chaperoned by one of the family, or
some other lady, generally of mature
age. Nothing could be more color
less than the life of a young Brazil
ian woman. She has no taste what
ever for reading; her education is
of the most meager description, it
not being considered wortli while to
educate girls. The necessity for
educating boys is understood by
parents, and those who are able to
do so, but a girl, what need has she
for an education? They would
laugh at such high-flown ideas
should any one suggest that their
daughters be given the benefits of
an education as a resource at band
for their own amusement, or that
they might be intelligent compan
ions, capable ot stimulating the in
tellects of their children, and hus
bands, loo, for that matter.
A very large majority of the
Brazilian girls could not tell who is
the Emperor of Germany, or that
President Garfield and the Czar of
Russia were assassinated ; the Soudnn
or Gen. Gordon are riddles to their
minds. They are even ignorant of
some of the most important histori
cal facts relating to their own land,
and of the thousand and one other
topics that the women of America
and other countries arc generally
conversant with. They embroider,
crochet and study music, but usually
lack the patience and application
necessary to excel in the latter. If
they want a drink of water, or their
shoes changed, they call a slave to
do it. Many can sew, and do their
own dressmaking, being very skill
ful with their needle, their natural
antipathy to work being overcome
by their'lovc of dress. Their con
versation is utterly frivolous, and
when with familiars they talk very
loud, and in the most animated
manner, gesticulating and beating
the air with their hands and arms,
all talking at once, with seldom anyt
hing worth saying. If the Brazilian
girl does not marry at the age when
she ought to be playing with her
dolls, she frequently continues to
play with her dolls until she does
marry, ihe writer rememuers see
ing a young lady about eighteen
years of age in a street-car, in tho
city of Bahia, with a doll in her lap,
which she cared for and handled the
same as a little girl would do, and it
is no unusual thing for young mar
ried women to own and play with
these and similar fixtures of the
nursery. One young woman, named
Marie, had live or six dolls, upon
whoso garments she spent much of
her time. "When she married she
insisted upon taking them to her
new home, but when this home he
camo invaded by less tractable
babies, she was finally obliged to
bury bcr inanimate, quondam friends,
with all their finery, in a trunk, pro1
bably to be resurrected by other
little Maries, when thej' will again
be nursed and made confidants of.
