Beniamina vs. Thomas Clarh.
Exceptions to the rinding of the Court nt Nisi
Prim, aa not Bn3taine3 by law anil evidence,
judgment having been given for the plaintiff in
the Bum of $100 and C03ls. The exceptions
wore over-rnled and tbe judgment was affirmed,
but the Court rendered no further opinion. The
following is the statement of the cause.
S. B. Dole for Pl ff.
It G. Davis for Deft,
" Appeal by the plaintiff .from the Police Court
The plaintiff claims $150 damages'to his land
by the defendant's trespass in entering and de
stroying strawberry Tines and trees. The de
fendant defends by claim of title in himself of the
portion of land in dispute. The time laid for the
alleged trespass is in 1868 and 18C9, and tbe
land in question is known as Paahiki, situate in
Honolulu. The plaintiff's title rests on a Royal
Patent dated in 1855, in which the land is de
scribed by metes and bounds, and directions. S.
P. Kalama testified for tho plaintiff that he sur
veyed the land according to the original Patent,
and brought the disputed portion within the
same, the line passing directly through the tree3
which wcro felled, and that he bad survoyed
lands for many years. Tbe defendant's title rests
on a deed from 11 is late Royal Highucss, il. Krj
kuanaoa, dated in 1850, and according to a surrey
by Capt. Pease, the disputed portion lie within
the defendant's land, Witnesses for the plaintiff
testified that be, with his father, had been in
possession over twenty years, undisputed- until
the defendant's claim in 18G8 ; also, that since
that time, the defendant had destroyed n straw
berry bed on the land claimed by both parties,
the proceeds of which the previous year had
been $100, and also felled and used some, thirty
one trees, the value of which ono witness testified
to bn $12 for each tree, for purposes of fuel, but
there was no definite evidence of tho quantity of
wood contained in tho trees. Thcro was also
evidence that tho defendant refused to allow his
own deed to be used by Kalama in surveying the
plaintiff's lot. The original deeds were in
evidence. Jury was waived by agreement, 'and
tho caaso was argued and decided in vacation as
of the Term.
The defendant's tille by deed frpm Kckuanaoa
dated in 18")0, docs not necessarily conflict with
tho plaintiff's title by Royal Patent dated in
1855, although if there were any conflict, tho
latter wocld prevail. Rut on hearing the evidenco
of tho surveyor, Kalamn, who explained hia modo
of making the survey in clear and exact terms,
and on noting that the bounds mentioned in tho
later dped are of a more fixed and permanent
nature, being natural landmarks like rocks, than
in tho earlier deed which refers for several of iu
bounds merely to adjoining taro patches, I have
no hesitation in finding that Kalama's survey lias
ascertained the truo limit3 of tho plaintiff's
lot. The evidence also satisfies me that the
plaintiff's strawberry bod, of tho value of $100,
without deducting cost of cultivation and selling
crop, and also the trees, wero destroyed by tho
defendant. The evidence is somewhat unsatis
factory as to whether tho pliinliff or his father
planted tho trees, or whether they were set out
by another person, not connected with them,
Tbe line of boundary fell in this line of trees.
The defendant at best bad only tbe rights of an
adjoining tenant in a partition wall, and ho is
liable in trespass for destroying the trees without
the plaintiff's consent. II is conduct in refusing
tho use of his deed to tbe surveyor Kalama
shows that ho was not confident of his own tille.
There was no evidence of tho skill or experience
posscsed by the surveyor Pease. Tho evidenco
ia not sufficiently exact concerning the measure
of damage to enable me to assess it at tho full
extent of tho testimony, but I am satisfied that
damage was caused to the strawberries and to
the. plaintiff's interest in the tress, to the extent
of $100. My judgment then is "For the
Plaintiff," and 1 assess the damages at $100, with
Alfred S. IIartwem.,
Justice of the Supreme Court.
Honolulu, II. I., Nov. 30, 1370."
From the Lond Saturday Review.
From tho common talk about courage, one
might fancy it was a 'fixed, permanent quality; on
tbe contrary, thero is nothing so fluctuating and
so dependent on varying external circumstances.
There are not only many degrees, but many kinds
of courage : individual and corporate courage,
the courage of Btupidity and of intelligence, of
hope and despair. And not only are there all
these varieties of courage, but tbe same man
may possess, or be possessed by all of them at
different moments. It was tho surviving Zouaves
who fought so desperately at AVorth, who ran
away so disgracefully at Pari3. In the same
joumiJ we read that tbe Mobiles with Garibaldi,
in the enst of France, are skulking in ditches,
scampering off across fields, or flinging thom
selves on the ground in abject terror, while other
Mobiles, at Brie and Champigny on tbe Marno,
are attacking the Germans with impetuous and
persistent daring. Vet in both cases tbe Mobiles
were drawn from the same stock, and if their
positions had been exchanged, would doubtless
have behaved in the same way. Indeed, many
of tho very Mobiles who ran away from Orleans
in tho first instance, displayed great bravery when
first led oack to Orleans by D'Acrellfv bnt again
lost heart gradually in tbe three days' fighting.
The behavior of a body of troops is by no means
an accurate measure of the personal bravery of
tbe individuals composing it, or even of the ma
jority of them. Tbe courage corporate, which
" drags tbe coward to heroic death," is a familiar
feature in the private history of armies. It may
require more audacity to run away under the eye
of comrades than to stop and fight ; bat beyond
this, there is an infectious spirit of bravery which
is irresistible, and of which a very little leavening1'
may at a propitious moment be sufficient to leaves
tbe whole mass. Fear is equally caaUgiqta ;,aa4
just as Bany a poor creatare baa been (tarried
forward, helpless, and nswilfing, by the mere
force of the surrounding enthusiasm, into some
heroic exploit, so have brave men been e-imikrly
swept away in a tide of panic. If the plain, on?
varnished history of any war wera'wrjtteo, not
the least startling page weald be tact which rei
corded the large and continued desertions which
are always thinning an army in tbe field. In tho
Crimea, numbers' of men used to break away
from our own regiments, sometimes with their
sergeants at their head. In all armies it is the
same. The truth is, that personal courage, in
tho ordinary sense of not being afraid, is by no
means so common, nor, where it does exist, is it
necessarily so noble and respectable a quality as
it is nsaally reckoned. AVhetber'n man is or is
not afraid at a particular moment may depend
not at all on his permanent character? bat on
quite accidental and temporary circumstances.
Dutch courage is genuine and effective enough
while it lasts, though artificial in origin and ofi
brief duration. Perhaps tho commonest kind of
courage is that of sheer stupidity, tho blind
man on the edge of the precipice trudging gaily
along under tbe impression that it is a safe high
way, and ignorant of the yawning gulf beside
him. "What is called presence of mind u often
no bethcr than this, though in its true form, in
cluding a full appreciation of the dangers of tho
situation, it is one of the highest kinds of bravery.
It was a favorite boast of the First Napoleon,
that he had the"2-oclock-in-the-inorning courage,"
that nnpreparcd, impromptu courage which U
never disconcerted by any startling event, but
maintains a perfect capacity to decide what is
best to be done. With Napoleon this was an
established Mbit of mind, a second nature, duo
in a great degree to his faith in fate. He backed
his luck, as it were ; believed, as a matter of
course, that there was for him, if not for other
people, always some way out of every difficulty
and danger, and so gave himself timo to think
what steps to take. Whatever fitful resemblance
thero may be between Napoleon III. and his
uncle in audacity of conception, nobody who ha3
studied the character and career of tho former,
can doubt that ho has none of that presence of
mind which is essential to success in the critical
moments of a daring adventure : as witness bis
utter collapse on tbe first strokes of evil fortune
at Worth and Wissemburg.
While, however, there are all theso different
varieties of courage, they will be found on analysis
to rest on the saino basis, and that busis is mental
conviction. Courage, in fact. Is much less a moral
than a mental quality, it is only a more or less
instiuctivo and unconscious process of reasoning.
Tho degreo of courage with which u man throws
himself into any enterprise will always depend on
his confidence that the object In view is quite
within reach, and of a value commensurate with
the effort to attain it. When you say that a man
is brave, you do not mean merely that ho is
utterly reckless of his person and life ready, for
example, to jump off tho roof of a house into
tho street, or over a bridge, on any trifling provo
cation, if he were of this character, he would
bo not a bravo man but only a madman. It is
assumed that his bravery i3 reasonable that is,
to say, that it will bo exercised according to tho
dictates of reason, and for objects which, from
his point of view, seem worthy of tho peril he
encounters. And here it is that the mental
process come3 into play. What is a rcasonablo
object in such a cnsuT Some, will decide ono
way, soino another; and of courso there is
courage in answering tho question as well as in
acting upon tho conclusions arrived at. Moral
or physical conditions will naturally affect the
judgment in such a matter; a dram of rum, or
ruki, a rousing bulletin, a fit of fanatical fervor,
may produce a slate of mind which makes light
of danger, and magnifies the importance of the
object3 for which it has to be faced. Low diet
and a cold mood of reflection will operate the
other way. According to one definition, courago
is only a synonym for hopefulness, and no doubt
the more sanguine a man is the more courageous
he will be so long, that is, as bis sanguine, con
fident state of mind endures, the besetting danger
of this mood being that it is apt to give way
suddenly and utterly, just in proportion to its
prevjous enthusiasm. Bnt so long as the san
guineness lasts it is a powerful stimulant, nnd
may, if a quick dash will do it, achieve great
Strange Domestic Romance. One of the
parties to tho following strange story has just
made us acquainted with its particulars : Thirty.
three years ago, tbe second son of a family in
which thero were three boys, being desirous of
bettering his condition in life, left England for
this country, with an indefinite idea as to where
ho might settle, and only once thereafter, in a
letter from Now York, had his family any in
formation that ho was alive. Four years after
wards, the elder brother came to this country,
and has since been reputably known in this city
03 n member of one of the most active professions.
' We aro precluded from saying more on this head-
The week beforo Christmas, our Boston friend
had occasion to visit Harrisbuxg, Pennsylvania,
from which place he took a night train for New
York. An obstruction on tbe railroad a few
miles west of Philadelphia caused a delay of some
hours near a small way-station. Some of the
passengers became tired of sitting in the cars,
and went out to exploro tbe locality,-particularly
with the view to the procurement of refreshments.
In th'13 accomplishment there was littlo chance of
success, as tbe place could not even boast of a
grocery. There are men, however, who are not
to be foiled In their intentions if any means can
possibly be found to carry them out, and some of
these people happened to be among tbe delayed
passengers ; and a respectable-looking farm-house
being near, that class of foragers invested it,
called up the inmates, who were enjoying the
comforts of their last morning hour's repose, and
prayed for a supply of anything Said, from cold
water to cider, tea, coffee, Bourbon, or apple
jack. The owner of the house good-naturedly
opened it to his "clamorous visitors, and dispensed
bis hospitality in variotu'ways with bo" unatinted
hand. What seemed singular to many was tbe
fact that he would not accept of any compeasa
tion whatever, although he bad entertained at
least twenty rather extemporaneous guests. They
were all. prodigal of gratitude, and, of offera to
reciprocate at any time.
Our Boston friend was one of the farmer's '
guests, ind after thanking his host with gennioa
feerisg, be ha bi4oiI ttte tueem his awd, kWtUta
that a bed, knife sad fork, ad ape. we ready
for hia whenever he shoald v'teH Bcettm. The
farmer rooked upon the card, aad tlveb al the
presenter thereof, gazed agatB aed again at oee
and "the oter,aad havieg apparetly at (strt'sade

- Why, Willie, is this" really yoa ?"
The peculiar smile that accompanied the in
quiry tbrew-Ahirty-three years aside as"6ne would
fold back a curtain. Two brothers had met ufter
this longintarval, tSenaineon tbeeard being
the direct cause that led to the discovery. When
the train left, a short time aftenvajds.Jt caided
one passenger less to Now York, ,Qf. coarse,
the brothers had a pleasant time, in exchanging
their respective reminiscences .
Bnt a yet more Interesting featnro or"onr story
is to come. Our Boston friend bad tho company
of his brother to New York, on his way Some';
Having some hours to spend in the city prior lo
the sailing of the Stonington steamer, they took
a saunter around the streets' to nota the tempta
tions spread out for Christmas pseata. A.
lady's reticule hit the tasto of the Boston brother,
and he determined to buy it and tend it 'to' Lis
sister-in-law, in Pennsylvania. TJwx entered
store to mako the purchase, and a" nice Russia
leather portemonnaie was- added as a Christmas
remembrance to Joe, which was the name of the
Pennsylvania, brother. Thc. proprietor said tho
names of the parties who were to receive tho
gifts could bo put on the satchel and wallet at
but little expense or delay, and tbe suggestion
was hailed as an improvement on tho toIuq at
tbe articles. The names were written out oad
handed to the proprietor ot the store, whova- .
marked that he also owned tho samo snrnawa
This led to conversation, to explanation, and,'
finally, to the discovery thatlhrce long-separatoi
brothers had there and then met face to fhco ! It
would require an abler pen than ours to describe
the feelings entertained by tbe trio.
Wo are permitted to explain things thus far;
The third brother had been a little wild ia hit
youth, and hod entered the service of Queen
Victoria, in which he had remained for eleven
years. His regiment had been ordered to Canada,
and, being desirous of tasting freedom, he had
improved a chance of stepping over the line. For
fifteen years past ho has been in business in New
York, nnd has had worldly success'corresponding
with that of bis elder brothers.
Tua Wealth of Pbixck Honp.xzofJ.KBX.
Probably the reigning Prince of 'llohenzollorn is
tbo richest man in the world. Even in 18-18 his
wealth, both in lands and investments, was im
mense, and since, then, tho increase has been in
calculable. In 18-19, the prudent Prlnco resigned
his sovereign rights and so mada his fortune safe.
At tho critical timo when Bismarck and the
Prussian Parliament wero at variance, and the
great game of conquest was likely to be stopped
by tbo want ot funds, tbo Princo of Ilobcnzollero
replenished tho coffers of his Royal cousin, and
the King, Bismarck, nnd tho Prussian pcoplo
know how much they are indebted to tho oppor
tune loans. When Prince Charles went to Rou
mania, very knowing folk said tho enterprise
would fail for lack of money. Hie command of
tho Roumanian army was offered to tbe ex-Confederate
General Beauregard. The offer was re
fused, and the General is reported to have said
"Tho terms aro truly liberal, but ILero is no pay
master." The General was wrong, for Princo
Charles could draw largely on the exhanstless
richess of his father. It may be extremely doubt
ful if I'nnce Leopold will becotuo King of Spain ;
but, if ho makes the attempt to pby puppet to
Prim, bo wilt not altogether dependend upon
Spanish taxes for bis personal revenue, and for
hi3 father's sake alone he-will have tbe good
wishes of Prussia. London Figato.
Child ns . As for children, It Is aJmltleJ that
they ato barbarians. There is no exception auooi;
them to this condition of barbarism. This Is not to
say that they are not attractive ; but they havu the
virtues as well as the vices of a prbnativo people. It
Is held by somo naturalists that the child is only a
zoophyte, with a stomach, and feelers radiating from
It In search of something to fiU it. It Is true that a
child is always hungry all ovur; but he is also curi
ous all over ; anil his cutiotltity Is exeited about as
soon as his hunger, lie immediately begins to pat
oat his moral feelers into tho unknown and the iaS
bite to discover what sort of an eiistence this U into
which he has come. His Imagination is qnite as hun
gry as his stomach. And again and again It Is strong
er than his other appetites. Yoa can easily engage
his Imagination in a story which will'make him forget
his dinner. He is credulous and superstitious, and
opea to all wonder. In this, he is exactly like the
savage races. Iiorth gorge themselves on the mar
velous ; and all tho unknown is marvelous to them.
I know the general impression Is that children mast
be governed through their stomachs. I think they
can be controlled qnite as well through their cariosi
ty ; that being the more craving and imperious of the
two. I bava seen children follow about a person who
told them stories, and intereited them with his charm
ing talk, as greedily as if his pocktU had beta full of
Ion tons. Jfy Sunmer fa a GardiC J. Want sr.
