possessor of a book ontUlod1 "TJh

London: Printed for P. C. and
J. Rivington, No. 62, St. Paul's
Ohnrch-yard, and No. 3, Waterloo-Place,
Pall Mall. 1822." In
tho department of Geography and
Statistics tho following bit of
Hawaiian history is given. Tho
phonotic attempts at tho names of
tho king and his successor, as
well as tho namo of tho largost
island of tho group, will bo noted
with intorest by our historical
"St. Petersburg, Juno 30. It
is announced in letters from
Kamschatka, dated November 10,
1819,that Jammeamoa,King of tho
Sandwich Islands, died in March
of tho same year. Tho following
account respecting tho event iB
from somo American seamen.
"Previously to tho King's doath
a remarkable circumstance oc
curred. "Within an interval of
threo hours, tho Ocean, on tho
coast of tho Sandwich Islands,
roso to tho height of six feot, and
aftorwards fell to an equal depth,
so regularly, that not tho slightest
injury was dono to tho shipping
on tho coast, or to tho villages
adjacent. This was regarded oy
tho inhabitants of O waihi as a prog
nostic of tho king's approaching
doath. Tho governors of tho dif
ferent islands, which ho had re
duced under his dominion, being
assembled round the couch ot
Jammoamea, ho exacted from thorn
a promise of observing religiously
all his institutions, for which, ho
said, they wore indebted to tho
whites who visited, and took up
their residence among them. He
desired, thoroforo, that their pro
perty should bo respected, and
that they should contmuo to en
joy all tho sarao rights and pri
vileges, as undor his reign. Ho
appointed, as his successor, a son,
named Reo-roo, twenty years old,
who received a European educa
tion, and speaks English well. It
iB apprebendod.that ho cannot suc
ceed to his father's power, without
tho oilusion or blood. He is, how
ever, at tho head of a strong party,
and tho Americans being deter
mined to assist him, tho general
belief is that ho will bo ablo to
maintain his authority against
any competitor that may start up.
Jammoamea loft half a million of
piastres, in his treasury, and to
tho amount of another half million
in morchandiso and trading ves'
sels, well equipped. All this was
amassed aftor Vancouver's visit
to theso islands in 1795. Jam
meamoa, sinco bocorao bo cele
brated, was then but an ordinary
chieftain, and nHsisted tho seamen
in filling their casks. Within a
space of 24 yoars ho subdued tho
whole of tho Sandwich Islands."

INN OF DEATH IN PARIS,

Minted on Colfluc iud Surrounded by

Among tho most riotous and no
torious of streets in Paris i tho
Boulevard do Clicliy, tho haunt of
every kind of wickedness and a
place suro to bo visited by tho
foreigners looking for fun of tho
spiciest character, says tho S. F.
Chronicle. Just at present tho
most extraordinary exhibition to
bo Been thoro is tho Cabaret du
Noant, which may bo frooly angli
cized as tho Inn of Death. Its
chief "attraction" lies in tho as
sociation of death and its most re
pulsive attributes with tho fovor
ish gayety of Parisian life.
Two largo and sickly groon
lights, making everything and
everybody ghastly and deathlike,
notify you of its presence. It is a
small, dismal building. Through
a door draped with dead-black
curtains edged with silver, such as
aro placed on church doors at
funerals in Franco, you outer tlm
unholy resort. Tho room is vault-
like and filled with coffins. These
aro really tho tablos from which
you aro to drink. Waitors dress
ed as undertakers' men, in black
clothing with long streamers of
crepe hanging from their big hats,
flit about tho cafo. Thoy aro
choson for their cadaverous aspect.
'Iho poor wrotclies aro working
for a living and have no responsi
bility in the ghastly farco in
which they ore concerned.
' Tho undortakor-waitors call out
in sad tones: "Welcome to doath,"
and "Choose your coffin."
Having chosen your coffin and
orderod your poison (probably
boor), tho waiter brings it to you,
ropeating somo such formula as:
"Hero is something to finish
you off a drink mado from mi
crobes and grave worms."
Thon ho sots down your class
.and places a ciorge, a funeral
Eaper, by tho Bido of it. It is
ardly necessary to Bay that you
pay very high for a drink amid
these, surroundings. All around
you hoar tho undortakor-waitors
repeating their dreadful phrases:
"Welcome to death." "Horo is
something to noiBon you." Tho
doad cannot laugh," "TliiB will
make you rot quickly."
On the walls aro what appear to
bo paintings representing the
"Walpurgia Night," from "Faust;"
"A Night Fete at tho Moulin
Rougo," and other subjects. From
time to time all tho figures in tho
pictures change into skeletons.
You aro invitedto takoyour ciorge,
and, in company with other visit
ors, aro led through long, vault
like corridors. At last you arrivo
in a largo room, draped in black,
with no relief whatever. A man
dressed as a monk, with a largo
cowl ovor his head, stands at tlio
door and calls for silenco. At the
end of a long, narrow passage
leading from tho room an upright
coilin is seen. A chorister in rod
robeS'ConioB forward and invites
somo visitor to placo himsolf or
hordelf in tho coilin. There is nev
er any difficulty in finding a volun-
toor. Tins is in fact,an important
part of thoamusomontfor many of
the visitors who havoBoou tho show,
boforo. Tho volunteer passes bo-
hind a curtaiu and reappears in
