As we lay side, by side tbat nicht in the
"vale mbare," Phillips commenced tbe con
versation by whispering in my ear ""Well,
my boy, how yon like this here- Fijiil"' I
replied that I was delighted and fascin
ated with everything I saw, except the
practice of cannibalism, of which I ex
pressed tbe most unmitigated disgust.
"Oh," Baid he, "B'pose you live with me,
yon no see too much of that thing." I
said, " What do yon mean by living with
you?" rutting his hand over my month,
he whispered, " Don't you speak too lond,
the mate will tear us." There was not
much feat of thaV for the individual in
question had taken a strong dose of an
gona, and was at that moment sounding
all tbe notes of the gamut on bis nasal
organs snoring loud enough to be heard
at tbe distance ot half a mile. Phillips
went on to say, that he had taken a liking
to me, and wanted me to remain in tbe
islands and live with him. He would give
me a large tract of the best land in Rewa,
with all the "kaisi3 " equivalent to the
term " serf" in Kussia, formerly build me
a fine house, and give me as many wives
as I wanted. I would have nothing to do
but to eat, drink, and bo merry. How
much more agreeable would this be, said
he, than the life of a sailor, which at best
was a life of privation, hardship and dan
ger. The proposition was to me, of coarse,
a thoughtless and romantically inclined
youth a very agreeable one. But, I sug
gested, I belonged to the brig, and tho
Captain would never let me go. " I fix all
that," replied Phillips ; " You B3y yes,
that's all. 1 get you ashore. I help you
run away. All right. By and bye you
big man in Eijii." So saying, he rolled
over on his side and was soon fast asleep.
But not so I ; the thoughts of deserting
from the ship and thus abandoning, as
it were, my native land and friends at
home for on indefinite period, and perhaps
forever, to live among savages, were alter
nated with pleasant musings on the happy,
easy and luxurious life I might lead on the
islands ; so I got but little sleep that night.
Towards morning, Phillips awoke, and or
dered one of the ever wakeful attendants
to see that angona was prepared. Turning
to me, he whispered a warning to the
effect that I must be very careful not to
say a word to any one on the subject of
the prevoius night's conversation, and en
quired whether I had made up my mind to
accept his proposition and desert from the
vessel. I replied that it was a '-big thing,"
and thit I had not concluded yet as to
whether I should do so or not. ""Well,
plenty time," said he. "I hear, the brig be
at 2fukulau" the eastern outlet of the
river, on the opposite side from Mbiwa
"in a day or two, and then you and I go
oa board and we havo some more talk."
And so we dismissed the subject for that
time ; but I brooded over it in my waking
moments, and dreamed of it in my sleep,
for days and nights.
Returning to Rewa on the day following
the conversation related above, we found a
letter from the brig, stating that she would
sail that day for Nukulau, as Phillips had
previously stated she would, and so we had i
a few days more "liberty" before returning
on board. They were very pleasant days. '
The cannibal saturnalia was over, or per
haps bad hidden its diminished head in
some obscure retreat, and we spent the
time in rambling over the country and ob
serving the manners and customs of the
One morning, a canoe urrived from the
island of Kaatavu, where Phillips bad large
land possessions. On board the canoe was
a white man a runaway sailor, years be
fore who had been trading 'at Kantavn
for tortoise-shell. He bad a young native
woman with him, whom he spoke of as
"My Moll," and who had been presented
to him by Phillips. She was a native of
Kactavu, and while the "beach-comber's"
canoe was anchored near the shore, wish
ing, no doubt, to see her relatives, she
slipped into the water one night and swam
ashore. During the day, the chief of the
place, fearing Phillips' anger, brought her
back to her "man." He had now come to
Rewa, to make complaint of the abscond
ing of his "Moll." Phillips heard the story
through, and then said "All right ; I fix
that gaL She no trouble you any more."
I naturally supposed that these sententious
utterances portended some very condign
punishment to be inflicted upon tbe poor
"gal," but Phillips, beckoning me to where
he Gat, cross-lCgged, in savage majesty,
said in a very low tone "Tbat fellow d d
fool. He don't know how keep a woman.
You see, I make him scare." The woman
meantime was sitting a few yards in front
of the chief, with bent head, and her arms
crossed oa her breast. She was, for a
Fijii woeuaa, quite good-looking, light com
plexion, with yeBow b&ir, and would pass
in Hawaii-aei as an "ehn." Phillips, ad
dressiag the owner of the "Holl," observed
Tery cooly, that be was satisSed that they
two cooed not live together comfortably
and qatetly, after what had happened ths t
the "gal" would' be of -no farther use lo
any eae, &b4' tsSevt conjcqabntily, he had
H 31, 1869.
given orders to have her cooked for din
ner, as being tae beet use he could put her
to! The oven, he declared, was being
then heated for this purpose. The "beech
comber" eat for a moment or two, in silent
astonishment, staring first at the chief, and
then at his "Moll," and at last exclaimed,
beseechingly "Don't, for God's sake, Mr.
Phillips 1 I I've got nothing agin tbe
gal ; she's been a good gal to me, and I
don't want for to go for to see her scoffed,
all on account of a little bit of a lark as
she has been and cut up. Oh, don't, Mr.
Phillips 1" But the chief pretended to be
determined on the sacrifice of the woman,
and called one of his men with a dub, with
which, at a signal, he was to deal the death
blow. The man stood over the woman
with the club raised ready to strike, with
his eye on Phillips, awaiting the signal.
Our heretofore petulent and complaining
beach-comber was now all tears and en
treaties. He crawled on his hands and
knees, native fashion, up to Phillips, and
begged for the life of his "MolL" After
some minutes, daring which Phillips did
not utter a word, keeping a very stem look
on bis face, but occasionally giving me a
sly wink, he said to the man "Well, I no
eat him this time, but spose you come
again and make talk about that woman, I
knock him on the head, sure. You go
now good bye." Then, as the fellow and
his "Moll" went ont of the door, Phillips
rolled over and over on the mats, laughing
very heartily,' and saying "Didn't I scare
that fellow, eh? He big fool. Why he
no knock that gal on the bead himself, if
he no do right?"
In the afternoon, the chief and I paid a
visit to Mr. Jagger, the "Wesleyan mission
ary across the river. We were received
very cordially by tbe reverend gentleman
and his wife, and I enjoyed a pleasant half
hour's conversation, in the course of which,
the missionary, learning that I was ac
quainted with "the art preservative of all
arts" that is to say, that I was a printer
observed, that if possible, he should very
much like to have me remain on the islands
and carry on the printing of the Bible,
which, he said, had long ago been com
menced by the "harum-scarum" typo whom
I mentioned in a previous portion of these
sketches, and who it appeared, only work
ed when he wanted to make a raise, which
was, so to say, semi-occasionally. The de
lays were very vexatious, for the natives
were clamorous for books, having proved
to be very apt at learning to read. Here
was another and a very strong inducement
for roe to endeavor to remain on the isl
ands. I told Mr. Jagger, however, that I
did not think Captain Wallis would con
sent to my leaving the vessel, although I
should like very much to do so. He did
not attempt to persuade me, but merely
said that if such a thing could be brought
about, it would be very agreeable to him
and his brethren. During this conversa
tion, Phillips sat on a chair near by, appar
ently very much engrossed in perusing the
catechism in Fijiian, which he had picked
from the table when we entered the room,
but in reality, intently listening to what
was said. As I rose to go, Phillips said
to the missionary "You like have tbi3
boy make books, eh? I get him for you
by and bye," with a significant leer at me,
the meaning of which I, recollecting our
previous conversation, understood perfect
ly, but which wa3 not so clear to Mr.
Returning down the river side towards
the place whero we had left our canoe, we
heard the sound of loud singing in English,
proceeding from a large house near the
river bank. Listening for a moment, Phil
lips said, "I know all about that That
house belongs to Sydney Bob, and I pretty
sure he got some rum ; let's go and see?"
And so we went, and sure enough, there
was "Sydney Bob," the mission printer, and
one or two other beach-combers, discuss
ing the merits of a keg of old New Eng
land rum, which the Sprinter aforesaid, had
brought with him from a recent vi3it to
oar brig. We received a boisterous wel
come, and Phillips and 1 were immediately
furnished each with a tin cup full of the
fiery stuff. Phillips took hi3 dose down
as kindly as a babe would take to its
mother's milk, but it was most decidedly
up-hill work with me to swallow the burn
ing potion, a little of which I did manage
to get down, although with a wry bee and
a disturbed stomach. Bat to see those
men pouring down one tin pot full of raw
rum after another, was to me a perfect
matter of wonderment. They soon began
to. get garrulous, but the printer and Phil
lips held their senses better than tbe rest.
The latter informed tbe typo that I bad
been a "book-maker as he styled it, aad
of coarse the Free-masonry of the ''art
and mystery" of Faust and Gotten berg
brought us at once on friendly terras. He
remembered having met me before at Mbi
wa, but did not then knew that I was a
typo. Bat now, takiag me aside, he ex
patiated on tbe delights of a printer's life
in Fiji!, compared with a life in a dviKzed
country. "Why," said be, "in Losdos or
'ew York, in order to get a bare living,

Here was a aether stmsg iadnceaoct
thrown out for me to cosamit whtvt I mtf
almost designate as the criae, of desert! sg
the ship aad the captain, who bed so uei
formally treated me with kindness.
Phillips, although he had drank several
huge potations with "Sydney Bob," did
not appear to be much affected, and after
an hoar's stay at the scene of the debases,
which was by tbat time getting to be fast
and furious, he, at my earnest request, bid
good-bye to the bacchanalians, and with
some difficulty we got away and embarked
on our canoe to cross the river to Phillips'
house. As we neared the middle of the
stream, a long double canoe hove in sight,
coming np stream and rounding a bend of
the river. At a signal from the chief, oar
rowers paused. As the other canoe came
up, a few words were passed after the
usual salutations and then both canoes
proceeded to the landing in front of Phil
lips' house. The new-comer was deeply
laden with hogs, yams and fruits, intended
for one of Phillips' brothers, who lived
farther np the river. Tho produce was
sent as a tribute to him from one of his
lands. But Phillips unceremoniously gob
bled up the whole and had it stowed away
in his own store-houses, sending his broth
er's people home again empty-handed.
This proceeding, I took the liberty of say
ing to Phillips, appeared to me as rather a
high-handed one. He laughingly replied
that it was Fijii fashion that whoever was
the strongest did as he pleased with tho
weakest. My subsequent experience in
the world has proved to my satisfaction
that those islanders did not differ much
from tbe rest of mankind in tho applica
tion of the doctrine that "might makes
A day or two spent in this dolce far
nienie style of life, when we received in
telligence that the brig had anchored at
the mouth of the river. So one fine morn
ing, we hoisted sail on our boat, and with
Phillips on board, proceeded down the
river to join our vessel. We were pretty
deeply loaded with tortoise-shell, and one
of the chiefs canoes was similarly laden.
Altogether we had about four or five tons
of tortoise-shell, and about a thousand
pounds or sandal-wood. The captain was
well pleased with the results of our trip,
and made Phillips, who had been mainly
instrumental in securing our success, very
welcome on board. He remained with us
three or four days, and enjoyed his regular
grog and pipo with all the gusto of on old
Oar cook was a very black man, quite
old, a native of Salem, who having been a
number of voyages with the captain, was
a great favorite with him, and consequent
ly was allowed extraordinary liberties.
Phillips and tho cook got quite familiar,
and the former used to spend a good deal
of his time at tho galley door, spinning
yams. But this sort of pastime was sud
denly cut short one day, by Phillip3 gravely
asking the old darkey to show him his tail.
The cook opened his eyes to their fullest
extent,and asked what he meant by "tail."
"Why," said Phillips, quite seriously, "I
have always heard that you black men are
nothing but monkeys, and have tails all
the eame as them ; but you are bigger and
can talk, and wear trowsere, so we can't
see your tails. Come, let me see yours."
The cook paused a moment, and tben his
rage burst forth in a perfect torrent of pro
fane invective, and seizing a dipper full of
hot water out of his coppers, dashed it at
the retreating Phillips, who however, suc
ceeded in reaching the quarter-deck, on
scathed, where sat tbe captain, convulsed
with laughter. It was himself who had
pat Phillips np to playing off this joke on
the cook. '
After the lapse of about a week from
tbe time when we left Bewa-town, Phillips
being still on board, tbe king, his brother,
and Kangariungio, his younger brother,
paid us a visit in state, in three immense
double canoes. None were allowed oa
board except the chiefs, their families, and
their immediate attendants, and the ca
noes with their crowds of occupants were
veered off astern, hanging bylines. We
had no reason to suspect any violence from
the natives, but tbe captain deemed it pru
dent to take every precaution against gar
prise. Our guests were entertained in the
cabin to the best of oar ability, aad appar
ently much to their own satisfaction. The
fat old king, and Ms eqaaffy (at fair ami
forty" queen, drank their glass of rata, and
munched their bases! t and salt beef, as
though they liked it hagely. Their twa
children, a boy of seventeen aad a girl of

adds nothing to tbe evidence In the point at

Ilumbolt, "has not yet been resolved, wheth
er tbe savage state, which even In America
Is found In various gradation. Is to be
looked upon as the dawning of a society
about to rise, orwbether it is not the rather
fading remains of one sinking amidst storms,
overthrown by overwhelming catastrophe.
To me tbe latter seems to be nearer the trath
than the former." Max Mailer says: "JUftr
