THE HOPE OF AYIl.
nv nu.ru turner.
For weeks an ominous calm hung o'er tho
tranquil summer sea,
Like n shackled dovll of latent storm that
strovo for liberty:
And tho snblo pall of low'ring clouds that
shrouded tho mountain height,
Spiead slowly under the azure sky till day
seemed merged In night;
And the llltorcd suubenms, pala and wan,
liko tho callow moon's rays seemed,
And on many a noontide festal board tho
lamps of ovcnlnc gleamed:
And the crescent bay's bright, laughing
waves grew sulluii and still with ilrcmt.
As the demon storm King's cohorts massed
their forces overhead.
Yet tho merry surf sang a canzonet as It
swept o'er the coral bar.
And tho channel beacon, day and night,
shone bright as the Pollux star.
On the quay at mid-day a merchant stood
and scanned the troubled sea:
".May tho Hod of tho mariner shlold from
liarm tho Hopo of Ayr," prayed he.
The Hope of Ayr is Indian teak and swift
and stanch and true;
She has weathered tho Indian Ocean's
gales with half of hor present crow;
She has sailed tho Tagits and Amazon and
Behring's lev seas,
Braved Polar tempests and hurricanes that
rago round the Hebrides.
Yet my heart is heavy with nameless dread
as that storm-illled sky 1 view,
For tho Hone of Ayr, my star of Hopo, Is
live weeks overdue.
Yot not for the wealth the vessel bears arc
my hopes and fears to-day,
Tho' laden with costly merchandise from
the marts of far Cathay;
Thero are silken fabrics from famous looms
and porcelain service rare,
And jet veined marbles, and antique
bronze, unit jewels a queen might wear.
Quaint ivory trinkets from Afric lands and
curios In gold,
A ruby's perfumes and Ceylon spice all rest
in my vessel's hold;
Yet not for all this princely wealth are my
anxious fears," said ho,
"For she bears the Kose of Womanhood,
my bride that is to be.
Her starry oibs areas softly black as the
fur seal's gentlo yes,
And her cheeks have stolen the roseate
tints of Aurora's blushing skies.
Her hair like the heath-cock's sable wing,
or the ebon plumes of night,
Is a jet black lustrous coronal o'er a queen
ly brow snow-white;
Hor pure lips shame tho brightest hues of
a rubv coral snrav.
And her voice is as low and sweet and
clear as tho Porsian bul-bul's lay;
And tho modest grace of the palm that
bends to the South wind's coy caress,
Is Stella's own, but more to mo than her
Is tho pure and fervid and constant love
my darling brings to me,
May God, in His mercy, shield from harm
the Hope of Ayr," prayed he.
A sullen murmur of rushing wind and a
dash of rain from tho clouds,
And the sea's wild waves came sweeping in
in their eerie foamy shrouds,
Came shrieking over the coral bar and

through the crescent bay
sheets of -nowv spray,
And madly plunging upon
the strand in
And llercor the wind each moment blew
and the rain came driving down,
Till the wreck of plants and the limbs of
trees lay thick in the startled town.
And the surf on the bar like u raging Mend
.screamed out its wild despair,
As the warning peals of the beacon's bell,
storm voiced rang through tho air.
Far on the horizon's murky verge a dim
and trembling light,
Like the ignix-jiituiis' spectral ray, now
seen, now hidden quite,
Came faintly Hushing its message dread to
the anxious eyes on shore;
Then the pilot, bent with tho weight of
years, said: "The boy my dead wife
The pride of my prime and the hope of my
age is voyaging over the seu,
In an o'er duo frigate The Hopo of Ayr
(iod grant it is not she."
Like the van of an army beaten hack a
Hock of phaetons How,
A snowy host presaging death as they
swiftly swept from view;
For the pilot said: "When the phaetons
fly to tho hills from the sea's mad
Tho sharks shall banquet on living men
and noiio may count the graves."
And be turned his glass with a troubled
gazo to tho light on the ocean's verge,
For the surf on the bur and the beacon's
bell seemed chanting a funeral dirge.
As the fated ship still nearer drove before
the fearful nale
The pilot staggered and dropped the glass
aim ins cneoK grew ueatuiy
And the merchant shrieked:
you see? Speak! Speak, man
"My God," cried tho pilot, "I fear she is
lost 'tis the Hope the Hopo of Ayr.
Her masts are gone and a helmless hulk
she is Hying before the galo,
As swift as though every yard was set and
crowded with snowy sail !
Straight cm and on as if demon hands were
grasping a phantom wheel
And steering the slop where the foaming
surge tho coral reefs reveal!"
"Out with tho boats!" the merchant cried,
"And a thousand guineas are thine !
A thousand guineas apiece to the crew that
takes to the Hope a line!
And thrice a thousand to that brave crew
that brings my brido to me,
Safu from tho perils that round her rago on
that storm-lashed angry sea!"
Said tho pilot: "My son and his wife uro
there on the fated ship wo see,
And dearer far than tho wealth of Ind is
my dead wife's hoy to me;
Hut never a boat that ever was launched
or manned by a human crow,
Could live for an hour in that raging sea
and bring your love to you,
And nanght can your golden bribe avail
You must bow to tho chastening rod,
And trust your bride as I trust my bov to
the care of a merciful God."
By this tho night was coining fast and tho
cloud-draped westering sun
Wui nearing tho Occident slumber land
where tho Orient dawn had begun;
And straining their eyes through tho deep-
ening gloom thoy saw the Hope of Ayr,
With a shuddering thrill of hor strong teak
frame In human-like despair,
Plunge on tho reef where tho billows broke
into clouds of snowy foam,
Tho prey of tho sea alio had braved so long
und only u league from home;
Only a league! And strong men wept in
helpless, blind despair.
As the waves swept over tho battered hulk
that once was tho Hopo of Avr.
At last, liko a vail tho mercifuf dusk hid
tho stranded ship from view;
Hut stormier still through the night's long
hours the frenzied ocean grew,
And when from tho mourning eouch of
Night the dawn crept cold and gray,
the wreck of the bonny Hopo of Ayr
strewed the shores of tho crescent bay.

Tho Advorlisor of tho 15th insl.
has tho brnzon chook to inform its
readers or rathor goos into details
of what ho would hnvo us beliovo is
"arch treason." Ho winds up: "Ono
word from her (tho Queen) would
stop thorn all. Sho will not speak it,
because sho opouly defies tho Gov
ernment, and bocauso sho is an
avowed protondor to tho vanishod
throno of Hawaii." It is news in
deed to bo told about tho vanished
throno of Hawaii. May I ask sinco
whon? Can ho prove beyond a rea
sonable doubt that it has vanishod
East recall? Why, I thought that
ad to bo sottlod yot by tho United
Statos, which declined to accodo to
tho offor of this country by tho Pro
visional Government, until that
Power had investigated tho titlo
with tho prolTorod gift.
By tho way, what constitution are
wo living under? It surely cannot bo
tho "bayouot ono" promulgated in
1887, if wo are to judge by the whole
sale appointmonts of our law-makers
to offices of "profit and emoluments"
under tho Government, which that
instrument "strictly prohibits."
What Constitution have wo then? A
now ono? If so, out with it, that wo
may know something about it, and
not bo kept ignorant of such an im
portant fact. By so doing, it maj
bo tho moans of altering our opinion
of tho men who are presuming now
to bo tho heads of Government.
Othorwiso wo aro forced to look on
their acts as revolutionary. For tho
Constitution plainly states that any
alteration in it must bo done by con
stitutional moasure only (which that
instrument provides), and, as far as
wo know, those people have not
complied with. So much for tho
Constitution. I will proceed to dis
cuss somo of tho treasonable acts
quotod by tho Advertiser.
When tho Advertiser utters that
expression, "Ono word from hor
would stop all this," ho does not
know what he is saying. Tho peoplo
(outside of thoir loyaltj' to her) have
cortaiu rights which must bo heard,
which tho Queen herself could not
stop. Thoy have claims which must
be respected. If tho Advortisor is
to teach us what wo must say or do.
then, to use a soafaring term, "We'll
postpone tho cutter and speediato
tho bargo." If tho Advortisor and
tho cliquo ho represents aro ou tho
right tack, why don't thoy stop thoso
treasonable acts he speaks of? Is it
because they feel guilty thomsolvos?
What is to provont thorn from act
ing, if thoy are confident thoy aro
on the right track? Ho must, know
the blustering and intimidation he
resorts to is too thin and don't scare
worth a cent with us. If ho will
come down to business, and tell tho
Queen and tho Hawaiian whore they
aro in the fault, and prove it, then
"that would bo a horse of another
color," for wo aro all liable to make
mistakes. Wo may think sometimes
wo aro right when wo aro not, for
being human wo aro apt to err, but,
until it is proved boyond a doubt wo
aro wrong, wo shall still go on in "tho
ovon tonor of our way" and all tho
intimidation of tho Advertiser will
not alter tho courso wo aro pursuing,
keeping quiet and peaceable, wait
ing patiently, with tho assurance
that "our good neighbor" will nieto
out justice to thoso who dosorvo it.

Respect; to Johnson the bluHer justly paid
And noble shirt maker honored his joblots
But whence this being? that a namo so
Should join witli Johnson tho shirt man,

This Johnson would better far proclaim,
To future ages humble his job lots namo,
Johnson and shirt maker had been well
Tho city collector and tho 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
Hero will 1 stav in spite of your teetli
For all kinds of shirt will I make to look
