A Tojrajrr to the Fy
TTrittea tr tie Osiette,
Leaving Livouia, we procetJed rrmnd
the east end of Oraha, and aodiored off
Mbaa the placa tfct then domioateU over
aad stilt does rale tka triocipal part of the
gronp. As I hare -before stated ia tbtee
sketches, the island oa which the town mil
built was merely a sand excrescence of the
reef, and scarcely anjthin; grew npoa it.
Yet rich, eitettiire and fertile districts
were tributary to it, and daily, whole fleets
of canoes were Brririnj from the other isl
ands with food, tapaa, mats, etc, for the
consumption of the Mbaa people. In com-
pony with the captain, I spent another day
and night on shore, vith Thalxmbaa. We
were entertained, as may be snpposed, in
a princely manner, and were feasted with
all the Injuries of the satire cuisine. One
dish, which I can never forget, and which
makes myraocth water, even now, to think
of it, was tnrtle soap, a la Fiiti. It was
served np in the upper shell of the tnrtle,
and consisted of the green fat, the liver,
cnt np fine, mealy yams, well browned, and
seasoned with a few red peppers. For
spoons, we had the shells of a mollnsk,
that abounds on the islands, and much re
sembles a ckm in shape. The dish was
brought in smoking hot, and the chief, tho
captain and I, sitting cross-legged around
it, enjoyed tho savory mess with great
gusto. The nsoal dessert of choice fruits
followed, chief among which, was a basket
of unusually large and One "ndawas," a
delicious fruit, which I hare heretofore
In walking about the town, early next
morning after a refreshing sleep on soft,
yielding mats, beneath a spacious "tau ca
ma, or mosquito bar -Tscama to the pub
lic square. Here I saw an unusual sight
in those islands : A fine looking bull, a
cow, and two half-grown heifers, tied to
cocoanut trees, each confronted with a pile
of freshly cnt grass and "ti" leaves. These
animals, the first of the kind that had ever
been brought to the islands, were looked
upon with admiration and astonishment by
the natives. Th? king had set apart a
separate servant for each of these bollocks,
whose duty it wa3 to see that they were
daily fed and watered. I suppose that by
this time, twenty and more years hating
elapsed since then, the bovine species must
have largely increased in the islands. If
th ey have not, it cannot have been the
fault of the climate or want of pasture.
That morning, after my stroll around
llbaa, I returned to Thakombau's bouse
for breakfast, and saw a singular sifrfat:
The king's barber was getting his break
fast, consisting of yam and broiled fish.
But what attracted my attention was the
fact that the barber's hands were clasped
across his knees, while the food was being
pnt into his mouth by a young man sitting
in front of him. On inquiring the mean
ing of this strange proceeding, I was in
formed that the barber, or body servant of
the chief was a tabued man, and could not
touch any food with his own hands. I was
interested and amused in witnessing the
process of feeding, and could not but ap
preciate the skillful and discriminate man
ner in which the feeder popped the morsels
into the mouth of the hungry barber. The
breakfast was wound np with a copious
draught of water. But the barber's mouth
must not touch the mcuth of the jug.
The vessel was held high up, while the
drinker, with his head laid back and his
mouth wide open, swallowed the fluid, as it
was poured out.
Sailtng from Mbaa, an hour brought ss
to Mbiwa. the residence of my friend
France for, after several months of close
intimacy, I had learned to consider this
amiable young chief in the light of a friend.
Here, however, we were to part, perhaps
never to meet again. Before going on
shore, France asked of the captain leave
of absence for me for a day or two, to ac
company him to his horn e. This wa3 readi
ly granted, and for two days and a night I
enjoyed the hospitalities of this "gentle
savage." I am sorry to say that J learned,
about tea years ago, by a vessel from Syd
ney, en route for California, which had
touched at Iivouka, that France had been
treacherously killed by the people of Rabo-
rabe, because he had become so decidedly
"Iota" Christianized. He was this, un
doubtedly the first, bat unfortunately act
the only, Christian martyr of the Fijii3-
Tbe Burfat that I staid oa shore with
France, we spent in the "vale mbure"
house of prayer situated, as is always the
case in their villages, on an eminence.
Here a fire is constantly kept burning, and
awa drinking goes oa all night, while the
old men and chiefs discuss the affairs of
"the nation." No females are ever allow
ed to enter this sacred place, and the awa
chewing was carried oa ia a "vale ca sle
ws" woman's house near by.
Oa the expiration of my leave of ahsesce,
retsraisg oa beard, I was detailed with
ethers, to proceed ep the river to Rewa to
bey tortoise-shell, of which there was said
to be a eoeeriderabJe qaantity at that place.

order to escape from the heat of the sun,
uanuxj uib tocg putt saicn was ueiurc us
some sbrteen railes we did not start from
the brig until late in tho day, and it was
sundown as we entered the river. There
was a pier of a moon, and the river, though
. -v . ,
not more than twenty yards wide, was deep
"iMiwu, ukouiKuwo, uut wiuuiug.
Alternately rowing aad sailing, as the
breere favored us, at about ten o'clock, we
got within a few miles of the town of Re-
wa. The town was a close collection of
houses, of about half the siie of Honolulu,
but there were many scattering hamlets
for several miles on either bank of the
river. In passing the first of these, we per
ceived that something unusoal was goingon.
The thick mangrove bushes that lined tho
bank, prevented our seeing beyond them,
but the light of great fires illuminated tho
background and flashed on the calm bosom
of-the river, while singing, shouts and
laughter rang out from the vilbgo which
was hidden from sight. Resting on our
oars opposite the position of one of the
brightest of the fires, and which seemed
to be within a few yards only of the river's
bank, the noise of yelling and singing was
almost deafening, while the monotone of
the war-drum rose high above the din.
While we lay thus, wondering what all this
wa3 about, suddenly we saw, tossed high
in air, just beyond the bushes, in the full
blaze of tho light, first a human arm, then
a leg, and then a head 1 It was a cannibal
saturnalia they were having. They had
got an t'mbacolo" a man to be eaten
from the spoils of Jlbeoga, the town which
they had sacked and destroyed, and were
making merry over it. We had a Rowa
man in the boat whom we were returning to
his home, he having been with' U3 through
out the cruise, and had alwaS'ap'peared'to'
be a quiet, well-disposed fellow. As we
pulled away towards the town, I expressed
to him the horror with which such scenes
were viewed by the foreigner. Ue laugh
ed, good naturedly, and merely said, usa
vinaka" it is good.
We arrived at Rewa, opposite Phillips
(Thaukananto's) house about eleven o'clock
that night. He received us very kindly,
and in a short time a smoking hot supper
of pork, fish and yams, was put before us.
I confess that I looked with a good deal of
suspicion on the viands, for I could not for-
ti pusaium iiiai uiey mignt attempt no
smuggle on us some of their horrible food.
Bat it was veritable pork, and I managed
to make a hearty supper, though Phillips
came near turning my stomach, by remark
ing, in good English, "I would rather have
a piece of baked man, than the best pig
tbat ever squealed."
After a refreshing sleep under a spacious
mosquito bar about twenty feet long by
fifteen is width, with aheight of ten feet
I got np about sunrise the next morning
and proceeded down to the river side to
tske a bath. Just outside of the enclosure
of Phillips' house, I observed four Fijii
men, sitting on the sand in a row, in the
usual native style, their knees drawn up,
and their hands clasped over them. They
all faced towards the river, and seemed to
me to be deeply absorbed in contempla
tion, for as I passed by them they spoke
never a word. At the same instant, I was
sensible of a delicious odor of cooked meat,
which I can compare to nothing but roast
ed bear-meat, which I afterwards smelled
and tasted in California. Proceeding to the
river, I had my bath, visions meantime
passimr through my mind incited by the
smell of cookery which had crossed my
olfactories of a good breakfast in store.
As I returned towards the house, I walked
up face to face with the four men, who
were still sitting on the sand in the same
positions in which I bad first seen them.
On drawing near, -what was my horror to
perceive that they were dead, yet warm
from the oven, and that the delicious odor
that had excited my appetite for breakfast,

girls, captives in tho lata raid. They
were both apparently of the same ago
about fourteen and very prettily featured,
with long, and almost sandy colored locks
of hair, which hung down on each side of
their foreheads. While w sat in the
house, aloorsido of Charier, the cirls the
price of whom was two whale s-tee th apiece
were brought and seated just before us,
for his examination and approval. Tbey
were simply clothed with the "Jiku a nar
row strip of the inner bark of the tapa
tree, djod various colors and tastefully
braided. The one who sat nearest to me,
was quite light complexioned.and had reg
ular and acquiline features, but what struck
me as most singular, was that her breast
exhibited a growth of hair that many grown
men cannot boost of. This merely shows
tho hairy nature of tho Fijii race.
I, naturally enough, pitied the poor
young creatures, torn from their homes,
their parents slain, and they themselves
sold as slaves to the will and the last of a
foreigner. There they sat, before their
prospective purchaser and tho chief, to
whom they belonged by right of capture
their heads inclined and their eyes bent
upon the mat before them. .They were
beautiful young animals. The humanity
that was originally implanted in them had
never been cultivated, and so it was dwarf
ed, and indeed crushed, to that extent
that it would have required tho skill and
the tact of an angel to bring again to life
the heaven-born spark which we designate
The bargain was soon concluded, Char
ley giving the chief some gun-flints in ad
dition to the whales-teeth, and tho two
girls were sent to the "harem," in the rear
of the main house, and confided to the caro
of tho "marama" matron of tho establish
Xangariungio, after taking a doso of awa,
then entertained ns with an account of his
expedition to Mbenga. As usual with the
tho Fijii fights, it was a case of treachery
and stratagem. Sending first a whale's
tooth to the people of Mbenga, with an
invitation to them to go on a fishing expe
dition for bicheJe-mer, which it was pre
tended was about being planned from Re
wa, the war party crept upon the town at
night, when they knew that the chiefs
were in consultation in tho "vale mbule,"
and the major part of tho men, women and
children asleep. Token thus unawares, the
populace fell an easy prey to their assail
ants, and the men, almost to a man, were
slain. The woman and children mostly
escaped death, and were taken to Rewa,
to be apportioned out among the chiefs of
the victorious party, as slaves. So the
lately happy and flourishing town of Mben
ga, like that of Muthuata, on the other
extremity of the group, was wiped out.

The following account of a mysterious
murder, committed seventeen jean ago, and
the recent discovery of the murderer, is given
br the London DtUvXcK. It would furnish
a wonderful theme for elaboration as a sen
sational novel of the period:
The lapse of seventeen years and a half has
not erased from the recollection oftbe inhab
itant of the city of Norwich the frightful
sensation which they experienced in the year
of the Great Exhibition. On Saturday, the
Slst of Jane. 1S51, a young man named John
son was ont walking In a lane about a mile
from Norwich, accompanied by his dog. The
og was ranging a neighboring plantation
nd found there a piece of carrion, which he
brought out on the road, and with which he
Immediately ran home. On Johnson's arri

How to riT Collars to Horses' Soocv
rmti It la very Important to have a collar
flt nicely and snugly to the shoulders of a
horse. It enables him to work with a great
deal more case, and to apply a great deal
more strength. It prevents galling and
wounding, a the friction Is avoided. Collars
are made, or should be to made, as to throw
the chief force on the lowerpsrt of the shoul
ders. The horse can apply bntlittle strength
on the upper part, and for this reason breast
collars are coming greatly lato vogue; as tha
strength is exerted on the lower nartnrtho
shoulders. But weatarted out to tell our
readers bow to make a new collar St the
shoulders of the horse. The collar tbould be
purchased of the proper site They are
usuallr too large. If obtained ot tho proper
site, just before, putting It on. the firtt time,
immerse it In water, letting it remain about
a minute, and Immediately pnt it on the
horse, beln carefal to hae the hamta to
adjusted at the top and bottom as to fit the
shoulders, and then pnt the horse to work.
The collar, by being wet. will adapt llteirto
the shoulders, and should dry on the horse.
When taken off, It should be left la the same
shape it occupied on the horse, and ever
after yon will have a snng-fltUng collar and
no wounds. JoScy farmer.
