Oar fishing at Mali went on Terr sac-
cesiMIv for about three treeas,bat through
tae coadoct of Brown, j tie Portunese
wba bat tie principal raaBaement, it was
tatier Esddeclr brogat to an end. like
rainy other specimens of poor erring hn
manity, when dothed ' with a little brief
authority, Brown was indlned to be peto
lint and OTerbcaring. Be had freqneat
snd petty quarrel? wits the natives, in tra
ding, and althoagh I did' not thorooghly
understand everything that was said, I saw,
plainly enongk, that a feelbg of exaspera-
tion against him, was.exinin araonj the
people. I export elated with hira on
his eosrse, bat his invariable answer was,
that he knew these people better than
did! that a hostage was os board of the
brig, and therefore, we were perfect safe.
I spent, however, some very pleasant days
at Mali. Every morning, early, women,
and boys and girls, fiocted arcand the trade
house with fruits, vegetables and fish, in
re tarn for which, they wanted some trifling
article, bat oftener, they brought their frnits
as a present, and only wanted the privilege
of bein? allowed to sit and look at the
tangane papshngi" the youthful son o!
the skies as they termed rse. The peo
ple of this part of the coast of Vacua Le
va, were generally ranch lighter colored
than those of 3! baa and Eewa, and this
was ascribed to the mixture of Tonga
blood. Still, there were all shades of com
plexion among them, from the almost Afri
can blackness of the Fijnaan of the origi
nal stock, with his imniense head of hair,
which, while it was not veritable wool, look
ed very ranch like it down through the
different degrees of light and shade, until
frequently, one might meet with a face
that would pass for that of a quadroon, in
Sew Orleans, and with yellow flowing
locks. There mast have been, in some re-
mole period, a considerable of a mixing np
of different tribes and breeds on those is!
asds, to produce so many divergent types
of humanity, Yet, they are all the same,
in point of character all r-nniKil sava-
I met a Hawaiian at Tarea, who was
known among the foreigners as "Oaha
Sam," and who had probably run away
from a whaler. He was living with
the chief, in high favor and affluence, and
was said to be almost ar much of a can
nibal, savage and bigamist, (if we may ap
ply the term to Fijii Alonnonism) as any
of the people among whom he lived. He
made a call on me at the trade house, and
made me quite a Iog speech, on present
inz me with some verr tine sh. The
speech was in broken English, but so ex
tremely broken, that I could not compre
hend his meaning. He then essayed the
vernacular of the island!, but here again,
his inability to pronounce the sound of the
numerous consonants of the Fijii language.
and my then limited knowledge of it my
self, rendered him almost unintelligible.
At length, by tigns, he made me under
stand that he wanted a shirt, and one of
the kind denominated hickory." Thi3, 1
happened to have at hand, and gave to
him. I did not see Oaha Sam for months
afterwards, but eventually met him at Ee
wa. just before oar departure from the isl
ands, when he, attired in the afore-men
tioned shirt, and a maro, of coarse, urged
me to enter his straw-thatched mansion
and see his family. I did so, and found a
fine, healthy young- Fijii woman, whom he
claimed as his wife, nursing a little babe,
somewhat lighter than herself, while with
the disengaged hand, she held cp to the
light, the recently issued catechism. She
was pondering over the first question
What is God!" In the native toogoe
Sa thaba Ibovaf The answer ws
Ihova sa kala" "-God is a spirit." Dur
ing my wanderings and sojourning?, I have
somehow lost tnr copy of the Fiju cate
chism, which was really, very neatly print
ed, and, &3 1 was afterwards informed, very
accurately translated into the vernacular,
and in consequence of the loss, cannot give
any more specimens of the written lan
guage.
After thi3 digression, which I trust will
not offend my readers I revert to my
experiences at Mali As I said at the
cofRmeBcegent of this number, my partner
ia the shore trading business, was Drown,
the Portuguese. The chief of Mali, bar
gained with as for a musket, and the
price of the ten casks of ndrte was agreed
The chief brought one a day, for
ten days, and then claimed his pay. Brown
who was ray ssperior in the bostness
iaajted that he had only brought nine, aad
that nstil he brought the one required to
cooptete the complement, he could not
have the EBSsket. A creat deal of

the chief acd La people seemed calm asd

or k it Bet?" I eoy Bot bst giva ray de

Brown, aad be asd 1 had seae hitter
words. TheBaAives,wbileIw3 dttpeirBR
with my companion, suddenly disappeared,
and we were left qske aloee. I did not
think much of it at that time, bat I have
aace learned eaoacfc ef the nabUs of the
Paci&c Islanders to knarr, that seen a sad-
den and sullen departure, is a token of evil i bsyself repeating the words
intent. It mease revenge. And so it j "iSJS"
meant in oar case.
Daring the next two days, ao fishing
was done, and not one of the natives came
near our station, but remained in their ' breeze. What a relief! In the first trass
moantain fastnesses. Instead of the pleas- port of excitement. 1 levelled ray Biasket
ant scenes of previous weeks, when our
house was all day long sarrounded by men,
women and children, chattering and glee
ful, there was, what the Hawaiians call
neoneo desert. Aside from the squalling
and screaming paroquets, and the whistling
and pee-peeing of other birds, we were
like the -Deserted Tillage." Brown took
everything very comfortably, bat I felt that
from the absence of oar fishermen, there
was reason to think that trouble was brew
ing. About three o'clock, one of the chiefs
men, whom he had been in the habit of
sending down to me with little presents of
roast pig, fowls, or fruit, came to the house
the first native of Mali that we had seen
for nearly two days and crawling in, on
his hands and knees, through the door,
presented me with a basket, neatly plaited
with cocoanut leaves. I of coarse, thought
it was one of the usual presents of pork,
and accepted it with all the dignity of a
chief. Bat in looking into the basket.
what was my surprise, to see the thigh of
native woman, nicely roasted! As soon as
I discovered its real character, I shouted,
-ilbacolo P the meaning of which, may
be rendered in English, "Deserving to be
eaten" and then threw the basket after
the retreating native. Then rushing into
the trade-house, I seized a loaded musket
and pointed it at him, as he rapidly disap
peared in the surrounding boshes.
At a short time after sundown, a half-
white, one of the numerous scions of an
old Irishman, who had lived on the islands
a great many years, and had Heaven only
knows how many children in all sections
of the country came to me and said
"Kugn Turanga, I wish to warn yon of
coming trouble. The chief and his people
are all very angry with Brown, about the
cheating of the extra cask of fish, and
they are bound to kill and eat him. They
are not so angry with you, but they are
somewhat angry because yon so contempt
uously rejected the present sent yon in
tended as a peace-offering the thigh of a
woman, nicely cooked. So I am fearful,
nugn toranga,' that they will kill yon also.
Ton have been very kind to me, and that
is why I have been all day skulking through
the bushes, to get a chance to tell you.
They will come down here some time to
night." Putting his finger on his lips, he
added, "If yon don't want me to be killed
also, never reveal that it was I who warned
you." I was too stupified with a sudden
overpowering feeling of impending danger
to make him any answer, and he glided off
and disappeared in the shades of the forest
My emotions were Tarious and conflict
ing, after the disappearance of Patrick
the younger, as he was known by the m
tives. The first idea that suggested itself
to my mind, was resistance. We had, in
the trade house, a rack containing several
muskets, always loaded, and two belts, each
contaiuinga dozen of ball-cartridges. With
these, I thought that Brown and I might
drive off the savages, who we knew, had
bat few fire-arms. Full of this idea, I en
tered the trade house, and found Brown
lolling on the mats with hi3 wife. When
I told bin my news, he became very much
excited at first, getting np and walking
about. On his wife asking him what was
the trouble, he threw himself down on the
mats and burst into a flood of tears, and
sobbed like a whipped child. I saggested
to him the idea of using oar arms aad sell
ing our Eves dearly. But I could get
nothing ost of him but ejaculations like
this 'Oh.Dioa, we shall be killed! Oh.
why did I come to this horrible country!
Oh my poor wife! we shall die together."
Seeing him in this cowardly and helpless
condition, I took a loaded musket, asd
strapping about me a belt of cartridges,
walked oat in the moonlight, down the
beach.

"Hallol" was the response, in Capt. Wal-
lis well-known tones. "Send a boat ashore
at once, or we will be all murdered."
mediately there was a boat lowered, and
the mate and six men, well armed, palled
to the beach. Telling him the whole story,
as shortly as I could, we proceeded to tho
trade house. There we found Brown, in
the same maudlin state of childish terror
in which I bad left him, weeping bitterly.
It is needless to add, that tho natives
did not come down from the town to at
tack us, they having seen the brig daring

TnRiE Soubczs or Wealth. In one of
his splendid speeches, lecentlyuttered, the
Demosthenes of the mighty West, George
u. renuieioo, eaia:
There are three sources of wealth. I see
around me gentlemen, who, like mytelf, be
lon: to the persuasion of the law : we are
jealous of our profession; but, gentlemen,
let me tell you, that no lawyer that everllved
in pursuit of bis profession ever added one
dollar of wealth to the country; no pbrtlcUn
ever did; no preacher ever did; no banker
ever did. We are all useful, I trust, in our
several vocations In life; but it Is our busi
ness to tike advantage of the misfortunes
and follies of other men, and when they have
earned tne aouir, to put it in our pockets.
LaughterJ There are three sources of
wealth. The man who roe down Into the
mines and labors there, and brings np from
tbe bowels of the earth the gold, and the
lead, and tbe tin, and tbe silTer, prod aces
wealth. Tbe men who, like most of yoa,
from early in tbe rooming till late In the-eren-ing,
and from June till December, toil upon
tbe surface of the ground, and make It bring
forth things necessary for the support of hu
man life: and the man who. with his skill
and labor, takes these things that are brought
np from tbe bowel of tbe earth, and culled
from tbe surface of the earth, and binds and
fashions them for tbe use of men Into tbe
implement of civilized life these are tbe
three producer! of wealth, and labor Is neces
sary to mem ail Ana it l the man wno
makes tbe wealth who pays tbe taxes. Toa
do not go to the treasurer' office to pay
them; but let me tell yon what yon do.
