Tbe following choice bit of word painting
occurs in Hawthorne's Maihle Faun:
" Women be they of what earthly rank
they may, however gifted with intellect or
gonius, or endowed with awful beauty, have
always some little handiwork leady to fill
the tiny gap of every vacant moment. A
needle is lamiliar to the lingers of them all.
A queen, no doubt, plies it on occasion; the
woman poet can usu it as auioitiy as tier
pen; tho woman's oyo, that has discovered
ti new star, turns from its glory to send the
polished little Instrument gleaming along
the hem of her kerchief, or to darn a casual
fray in her dress. And they have greatly
the advantage of us in this respect. The
slender thread of silk or cotton keeps them
united with the small, familiar, gentle In
terests of life, the continually operating iu
lluencesof which do somuchfortho health
of the character, and carry oil' what would
otherwise be a dangerous accumulation of
morbid sensibility. A vast deal of hiimiiu
sympathy runs along this electric line,
stretching from the throne to the wicker
chair of tho humblest seamstress, and
keeping high and low in a species of com
million with their kindred beings."
Housewives, while you ply tne needle,
have you ever rellected on the vicissitudes
of life? See to it that your husbands pru-

and tlto uofvorsion of tho Alabama

too, that tho Executive and Sonnto
fastoned upon a reluctant country
tho indefensible treaty with Hawaii,
which, in tho name of reciprocity,
gave a munificent bounty to a hand
ful of sugar planters; that, in the
name of bimetallism, tho first movo
was made by Sonator Jones for a
bounty on silvor mining; and that
Congress began its endeavors to
rival tho unconstitutional and abo
minable laws of California directed
against the Chinese, both resident
On what theory of democracy,
solf-govornmont, or homo rule has
tho tender of tho Hawaiian Islands
been made to this country and on-
tertained and recommended by tho
Executive? Notoriously, tho "pleni
potentiaries" represent tho merest
fraction of tho inhabitants, whose
wishes have not been manifested by
n plebiscite or even consulted. The
natives, whoso hereditary dynnMy
has just been overthrown; the great
mass of tho laboring population,
Chinese and Japanese; the largo
Portuguese contingent, and tho rest
of tho European colony, are to bo
taken over without an opportunity
to bo hoard in their own behalf, and
without ono word in tho treaty to
guarantee them (if thoy wanted it)
"tho enjoyment of all the rights, ad
vantages, and immunities of citizens
of tho United States" and "tho free
oujoymont of their liberty, proport-
aucl religion as was clone in tho
case of Russia's subjects in Alaska,
"tho uncivilized tribes" excepted.
Was thero anything tho parti
tion of Poland, or tho successive an
nexations of Alsace-Lorraine to
Frauco and to Germany more un
American than this?
Wo all know that tho Declaration
of Independence and tho Constitu
tion contemplated white men alone
in their glittering generalities, and
that it cost us a civil war to incor
porate black Americans among "tho
But that was a hundred years ago,
and are wo now to shut our 03'es on
all but a little group of solf-oxiled
Americans who have effected a coup
d'etat, and to see no other "people"
in tho archipelago?
Are we to do moro, and worse, by
stigmatizing in the very terms of tho
treaty, one largo and indisponsablo
part of tho Hawaiian population
the Chinese, namely and through
no act of theirs, upon no consulta
tion, subjecting them to an oppres
sive statute which cannot bo main
tained in our courts, and which
is in flagrant disregard of our treaty
stipulations with China? It is ac
tuallj' true that the United States
has been committed by its executive,
with tho approval of tho Foreign
Affairs Committeo of the Senate, to
tho forcible seizure of a kingdom,
with tho express intention to make
moro intolerable tho condition of
ono specific class of the inhabitants,
and that a tailing class introduced
by tho planters. This is one of tho
tender mercies of tho wicked; and if
it is to be carried out in tho spirit of
our unchristian attitude towards tho
Chinese on this continent, tho coolies
of Hawaii must be marched up be
fore tho camera, as if for the rogue's
gallery, registered and docketed, or,
failing that, or on loss of their
"passports" bo liable to be kidnap
ped and doproted to China.
Yot tho Chinese aro not an "un
civilized tribe" like tho Aleuts, and
thoy aro superior, in hereditary civil
ization and in all that goes to make
tho stutr of ompiros, to the Hawai
ian aborigines; whom evangelizing
has but helped on to extinction.
Nevertheless, thoy will not bo
allowed to become Americans, and
in tho most liberal measure of solf
govornmont accorded to tho Islands
by any Congress wo aro likely soon
to have, thoy will bo denied tho suf
frago tho badge and defence of
freemen. Life, liberty and tho pur
suit of happiness will, for them, bo
wholly at tho morcy of despots seat
ed either at Washington or at Hono

their extraordinary pains to settle at
:MX) miles' distance from our western
coast and MKX) miles from our capi
tal, not knowing, poor lioatlion!

"naturally" extends to thorn by rea
son of their "geographical proxim
ity," while their brethren in Cuba
an island which is to tho United
States continent what Long Island
is to New York aro secure from any
such high-handed oppression, thunks
to Spanish gunbouts and similar aids
to rolleclion and deliberation. Tho
President's precipitancy hero, as in
tho case of Chili, has its spring in
that spirit of caste which ought to
find no refuge in the bosom of a
Presbyterian elder, much less of tho
head of tho Grand Old Party which
enfranchised the degraded product
of American slavery.
Contempt for Spanish Americans
ns "dagos'' led him to play the bully
to a small South American State
just rid, after a fearful struggle, of a
tyrant and usurper; contempt for
orientals repressed every natural
scruple in him against making an
exception of the Chinese Hawaiians
in the treatiuont to be accorded to
tho population generally, 011 bring
ing it under the protection of (ho
American Hag. Add to this a per
gonal deficiency not only in the
judicial spirit, but in common jus
tice, which now for the second time,
to our national disgrace, hurries
him into deeinivo action before the
other side has hud a chuueu to bu
hoard. Such experiences can but in

Fnrdon of an American Ghargod
With Boing a Robol.
Washington, March 10. In tho
case of Captain Pharos B. Brubakor
of North Dakota, imprisoned in
Spanish Honduras, tho Prosidont
transmitted to the Senate yesterday,
in compliance with its resolution of
the 3d mst.j a report from Secretary
Grosham giving all tho information
in the department relative to tho
case. The papers show that Secre
tary Foster on Septombor OOth tele
graphed Minister Paeheco to look
into tho matter. On October lGth
Paeheco forwardod a tologram from
Secretary of War Alvaracto of Hon
duras saying that Brubakor was ono
of those who took up arms against
tho Government and captured Trux
illo, Juno 2.")th. Whon tho uprising
was put down Brubakor was ctip
lurod, tried under Honduras laws
and sentenced to soven years' im
prisonment, which ho is now under
going at Ouroa.
Foster replied ho did not soo how
tho Government could do anything
more, but as ho had assured Frank
J. Thompson of Fargo that tho Min
ister would do all ho could for Bru
bakor he wished Paeheco would act
accordingly. On Novombor 25th
Paeheco replied that ho had asked
tho Honduras Government for full
Lancaster (Pa.), March 10. A
brother of Captain Brubakor, who
was imprisoned as a rebel in Hon
duras, has received a letter from him
saying that ho had been pardoned
and is now on his way homo.
Tho Shirt Maker's Revenge.
Hold your orders for Jolinon is coming
The shirt maker is on the way
Look out for his whiskers for they are lcak-
Till you bear what be has to say.
Respect to Johnson the binder justly paid
And noble shirt maker honored bis joblots
But whence this being? that a namo so
Should join with Johnson the shirt man,
on a tomb be seen.
Tlii-. Johnson would better far proclaim,
To future ages humble his job lots name,
Johnson and shirt maker had been well
The city collector and the city bard.
Now import all your so called shirt makers
To take my honest living awav if you can
I canio to these Islands to work liko a man
Here will 1 stay in spito of vour teeth
For all kinds of shirt will f make to look
"last but not least."
I do all the shirt cutting that is
done at my place of business and in
case tho shirts don't give outiro satis
faction I will alter them, make now
shirts or refund tho money. All
