Boston, Sept. 1st, 1SC9.
En. Gazette: There is little left for tjs
who are forced to pass the summer months
in the city, bat to strive to be contented
with oar lot, and to seek all the respite from
active labor that we can. Physical labor is
out of tbe question, and mental industry is
quite as Impracticable. The crowds who
i make their summer liegira to the sea-shorc
and tbe mountains, are, many of them, kind
j enough to send back plowing accounts of
j thclrfunand pleasure, their cool breezes, nnd
their rapidly Increasing stock of good health,
with an evident desire to make us as uncom
fortable as possible. But tbey can not carry
everything with them. They must leave us
our long, delicious twilights so seductive
In wooing us from all our cares and labors
and a good share of cool, crisp mornings,
while a dash of east wind one of Boston's
specialties cools our fevered brows, from
time to time, when thedog-starrages. Tour
correspondent acknowledges a remissness In
the performance of his duties, but pleads tbe
enervating effects of summer Id extenuation.
The tide of travel is setting homeward now.
and tbe city, which has seemed quite desert
ed, is being rapidly re-populated. The door-
plates, which have had a lasbionablc discol
oration for months past, are being furbished
up. Bright faces peer from the windows;
and the nut-brown complexions one meets
attest tbe health-giving influences to which
their owners bavu beeu subjected.
Tour correspondent managed to get a few
days' respite for a run down to Cape Cod, and
greatly enjoyed bis visit. The town of Den-
tils, divided into several villages, Is pleasantly
situated on the line of the railroad just where
the arm of Massachusetts bends at tbe elbow.
Her hardy sons plow the seas, the most of
them leaving at home bevies of pretty girls
almost entirely unprotected! Nor do tbey
seem to belong to that "anxious and aim
less" class, whose existence Gov. Andrew
thought he could render less burdensome by
legislation. Bright, cheerful, hearty, and
self-reliaut, tbey Infuse even Into the city
belles who flock there much ol their own
naturalness and good humor. Perhaps tbe
air may have a favoring Influence, but certain
it is, jollier girls and hardier sons than Cape
Cod produces, it would be hard to find. The
town itself, with its clumps of trees and neat,
white houses, has a serene, contented air,
that " has power to quiet tbe restless pulse
of care," and is very grateful to one tired
with tbe hustle of city life. The soil Is
sandy, and quite unlike that which Jerrold
described, which, "if you tickled It with a
hoc, laughed with a harvest." On tbe con
trary, the crops extorted from the unwilling
earth are quite meagre. I must not forget,
however, that delicious edible which adds
such a zest to our Thanksgiving Dinners,
and which Is exported to remote parts of the
earth. Tbe cranberry crop thl6 year, accord
ing to present indications, will be cuormons,
I left the Cape and visited the Island of
Nantucket. Very many of the Inhabitants
of this town have visited your Islands in
years past, and some of tbem made a perma
nent residence there. I remember the place
when the whale-flsbcry was very active;
when the ceaseless sound of tbe hammer and
the anvil, was heard from morning to night;
now, there is an almost unearthly stillness
about the place. Tbe wharves are, most of
them, rotted away; the streets seem quite
deserted, and although the houses are neat
and-trlm, there Is an air of desolation per
vading the town, as if the life bad been
quietly crushed out of it, that Is painfully
suggestive of a more than Rip Van Winkle
sleep. The people are very hospitable, and
warmly attached to their native place. Tbey
move in one accustomed circle from day to
day, while the arrival and departure of their
little steamer Is the only ripple that disturbs
tbe placid surface of their dally life.
Changes In Boston.
We have been making many changes In this
city during the past few months. Tbe widen
ing of Hanover Street, from Court to Black-
stone, is nearly completed, and will make a
handsome avenue out of a homely street.
Tbe present design is to carry it tbrough to
Commercial Street, thus opening a broad and
direct thoroughfare from the North End to
the centre of the city. Trcmont Street Is
quite finished, and a few days since the Hotel
Pelham was moved back into line. It Is a
stone building, seven stories high, and was

building, together with a massive granite
sidewalk, some fifteen feet. Tbe moving
cost tbe city about $25,000, and took weeks
of preparation. Myriads of small Iron rollers
were placed underneath, and when tbe build

removed, but secured with cement. Wash

Tlie Prohibitory Law.
There is some little excitement with refer
ence to the Prohibitory Law passed by the
last Legislature. It is expected that it will
exercise quite a strong Influence In politics,
this fall. Strong efforts are making to Induce
tbe Republicans to put a prohibitory plank
In their platform at tbe coming Convention,
while equally strong Influences are at work
to suppress any allusion to the temperance
question. Tbe State Constable Is actively at
work suppressing open bars,,and tbe subject
has never been so thoroughly canvassed be
fore. Our present Governor Is in favor of
prohibition, and will be a candidate for re
election. The Democrats have held their
Cocvention, and nominated their twice
defeated candidate John Qnlncy Adams,
grandson of tbe old President. Tbey de
nounced the prohibitory law; declared in
favor ol negro suffrage; and Indorsed, or,
rather, accepted as an Inevitable fact, tbe re
construction policy of Congress.
The staid Old South Cbnrcb, which has
kept tbe even tenor of Its way for so many
years, and stood as a beacon light of uncom
promising orthodoxy, bas met with a dis
turbing element. Some fifty young people,
who, regardless of Paul's injunction that the
6.00 PER YEAR
women should keep silent In the churches,
and of the frowns of deacons and elders,
openly asserted the right of women to speak
and be heard, and their Innovation meeting,
with no favor with the older members, have
finally seceded and established a meeting of
their own. A new church Is talked of, in
which this new element shall find ample room
An amusing incident occurred a while ago.
A young man had been doing a thriving
business In the illicit manufacture of small
stills, and in informing on those who used
them; thus reaping a double profit, and
eluding, himself, for a long time, the officers
of the law. He was finally arrested, tried,
and sentenced to jalL Just before the loca
tion of his future residence was fixed, be
stated that he bad a request to make of tbe
Court. On being allowed to proceed, he
wished to know If It made any difference to
tbe Court which jail he was sent to. Tbe
Court thought It would not. He then re
quested to be sent to Dedbam Jail, as his
family lived near there. The request seemed
reasonable, and was compiled with. It now
turns out that the brother of the prisoner is
jailer there, and that be bas been very com
fortably entertained at tbe expense of tbe
State for some time. .

Supreme Court October Term,
The King is. Apuna.
Complaint for selling opium without li
cense. The defendant appealed to the Cir
cuit Court of tbe Fourth Circuit, from the
judgment of the District Magistrate- Two
witnesses, Pabiba and Kcliipakaun, testified
for the prosecution that they saw the pris
oner, at his own house, tnrn some opium
from a large box into a smaller one, which
be gave to one Asii; that they saw AsII then
pay the prisoner 3; and that they arrested
Asii after he left the house. Tbe man Asii
testified for the defense, that be was at his
own house smoking opium when he was
arrested and very roughly treated by the
witnesses for the prosecution, while he was
smoking some opium which he got from
Honolulu; that he bad bought no opium ot
tbe prisoner, and was not at his bouse tbe
day he was arrested. On his cross examina
tion, he testified that he bad given tbe same
evidence before tbe Magistrate, and that be
did not say he got the opium from the pris
oner; whereupon, tbe Attorney-Ceneral pre
sented to the witness a paper purporting to
be a sworn and witnessed statement, signed
by the witness, that the prisoner sold blm
the opium. The witness said he never saw
the paper before, and that he did not know
what he did, tbey beat him so. The defend
ant's counsel objected to the Introduction of
this paper, as extrajudicial, upon a collateral
matter, and neither written nor properly un
derstood by tbe defendant, and to tbe intro
duction of evidence relating to it; but his
objection was overruled, and the paper was
allowed to go to tbe jury as evidence only to
affect the witness's credibility. To this rul
ing, exception was taken. The witness tes
tified, on re-examination, that he was hurt
and stunned; did not know that be signed
tbe paper, or what be did ; and that Pabiba
held his hands. Other witnesses for tbe de
fense testified that they saw Asii arrested
and dragged off roughly by the policemen,
Pabiba and Keliipakaua, Asii calling out for
lielp while the policemen were " banging"
In rebuttal, Kaukaha testified, against tbe
objection of the defendant's counsel,, that tbe
paper was sigued before blm by Asii, will
ingly; that after Asii was arrested, be asked
him if he bought tbe opium of the prlsouer,
to which he answered, yes, whereupon he
wrote the paper, and read it to Asii, who said
he understood it The Sheriff of Kauai,
Fyfe, testified that, at tbe first trial, Asii bad
testified that tbe Chinese figures on tbe paper
were his name, and that be got tbe opium
from the prisoner ; also, that Asii answered
him in native very well.
Tbe defendant's counsel asked the Court
to Instruct the jury "that the fact that tbe
witnesses, Pahiba and Keliipakaua, did not
arrest tbe prisoner and seize tbe large box of
opium, is a circumstance tbey may take into
consideration, to affect tbe credit of said
witnesses, as It regards tbe testimony of the
alleged sale of opium," and excepted to the
Court's refusal to give the instruction.
The Jury returned a verdict of guilty. The
defendant's counsel moved for a new trial,
and his motion was denied. After sentence
was pronounced, tbe defendant moved as
follows: "And now comes Apuna, In bis
own proper person, and offers to give bond
and sccnrlty for tbe fine against him under
the judgment and sentence of tbe Court, and
for the costs of the prosecution In the case,
and for the payment of all costs in tbe Su
preme Court consequent on bis motion for a
new trial, and tbe exceptions filed herein,"
which motion was denied. Tbe defendant's
Bill of Exceptions was allowed.

The following are defendant's points:

because extra jndicial, written In a language
Imperfectly understood by him, translated
and read to bim, and marked by blm, while a
prisoner, beaten and confused, and not know.

& Payne, 4S3, 487; 11 Aid & Ellis, 803.J
2. The Court erred In allowing tbe Attor
ney-General to cross examine Asii relative to
bis statement before tbe Magistrate, without
informing him of tbe nature of the statement,
or reading tbe written statement to blm, or
exhibiting its contents to him, before such
cross examination on tbe evidence contained

4. The Court has the right to modify and
correct the judgment of tbe Circuit Court In
exceptions, and if the exceptions are not
sustained, the Court, in assessing the punish
ment of defendant, can take Into considera
tion tbe two months' Imprisonment the-defendant
has suffered, and the one month's
hard labor, without authority of law, which,
has'been Inflicted on him.

8. H. Phillips, Attorney-General, for "the
Tbe Attorney-General made the following
1. The writing signed by the witness Asii,
was competent evidence for tbe purpose of
contradicting him upon a material point, (for
which purpose, alone, It was admitted.) 1

alere vs. Case, 1 Wash., C. C, 413.
2. Tbe previous inconsistent evidence of
Asii, before tbe Magistrate, was legitimately
admitted, to discredit bim upon a material
point 1 Phillips on Ev., 293, and cases
cited in Cowen & Hill's Note, No. 633.
3. A Court is not bonnd to give Instruc
tions In the words of Counsel, or to single
out detached facts, and give them undue
prominence, at the request of either side.

ill vs. Roscbeck, 15 Conw., 359; Den vs.
Wintermute, 1 Green, 177.
4. The verdict was warranted by the evi
The defendant's motion for a new trial, as
already decided by tbis Court in Tbe King
vs. Cornwcli, was not properly before the
Circuit Court The refusal of the Court to
give tbe instruction prayed for, could not
bavu injured the defendant, the weight of
tbe evidence and credibility of tho witnesses
being left to the jury alone, There Is no
ground In this case to set aside tbe verdict
as without evidence. Tbe question of set
ting aside verdict on conflicting evidence is
so clearly settled, that it Is unnecessary to
comment upon It The prior admission of
tbe witness AsII, and the evidence of the po
liceman were sufficient, If believed, to sus
tain the verdict.
In regard to the Introduction of tbe writ
ten statement and of evidence thereto, alter
the witness had testified, with corroborating
evidence, that he knew nothing about the
papers and that it was obtained from blm by
violence or misunderstanding, It Is enough
to say that such evidence Is always admissi
ble for the purpose of discrediting a witness.
Tbe witness's attention should first be called,
as was done here, to tbe contradictory writ
ten or oral statement alleged. Tbe fact that
this written paper was sworn to, and only
signed by tbe witness docs not affect tbe
general rule, admitting evidence of previous
contradictory statement, In matters perti
nent to the issue. It was In the discretion
of the Court to approve or not, the security
offered for a bond conditioned to pay the
floe and costs. What that security was, does
not appear, and therefore we cannot regard
the refusal to approve the bond as an abuse
of discretion. Tbe fine of three hundred dol
lars Imposed Is within tbe limits prescribed
by law and is not to be set aside as excessive.

The Court after remarking tbat in strict
ness the demurrers of tbe defendant admit
