AS IJIDEPKNDEST JOURNAL,
DEVOTED TO HAWAIIAN PROGRESS.
The world is indebted to M. Qaaterfsges, the
eminent French naturalist, for a knowledge of
the life history of the Teredo nivalis, properly
cslled the ship-worm. This destructive little
animal makes its home in submerged wood, which
it perforates with tubular golleries, where it spends
its life alternately tunneling and feeding on the
fine raspings or chips it makes. It abounds in
the sess, and its ravages are so extensive and so
rapidly effected that all submarine structures c
wood are liable to be riddled by it unless care,
folly protected against its operations. Planke
and timbers oi bridges, piers and ships, that ap
pear outwardly whole and perfect, will often on
eimination prove to be internally farrowed in
every direction nnd ready to crumble in pieces
under the eliirhtesl weight. A piece of deal has
been found completely riddled in lurly days after
its immersion. M. Q'laterfngea relates that a
boat raised lour months after it had foundered on
the coast near Port Sl Sebastin was so worm
eaten that it was utterly useless.
The curious part of the Teredo's tunneling is.
that, although its galleries mny perforate every
part of the wood and destroy its entire substance,
they never communicate. Some instinct informs
the little miner when it has reached a furrow hol
lowed by some other individual, and it instantly
changes its course and literally worms its wsy in
a new direction. It generally moves with the
grain unless it meets with tome obstruction.
Karly in the eighteenth century the leredo at
tacked the dikes of Holland, and for a time threat
ened to annihilate the country by consuming the
piles supporting the sea walls, and thus letting
the ocean roll in upon the land. A vast sum uf
money was expended before the imminent danger
was arrested. Hut protection against the l eredo
has been found in iron rust. Timber exposed to
its gnawing' is rendered saf- on being impregna
ted with oxide of iron. Copper sheathing is em
ployed to protect ships, or the timber is driven
full of short, broad-beaded nails, the rust of which
covers it with a coating which is to the Teredo
like an armor of mail. Its little teeth never at
tempts to peuetrute a material so spoiled for its
Although the Teredo is called a worm, it is re
ally an acephalou3 mollusc, and wears from its
birth a little bivalve shell. Bat in the progress
from infaiicy to maturity it undergoes singular
Iraueloriualions. It is hatched from a small,
round, yellowish-green egg. and is at first naked
and moliouleas. It id soon covered with vibra
tile cilia, after which it swims about for for'y
eiglit hours. At the end of this lime the cil.a
disappear, and the young Teredo sinks to tl.e
bottom. Here, in the course of five and a half
days, it develops a ahell that utmost entirely in
closes it. Then it gradually put forth a long
slender foot that projects far beyond the shell,
an l by which it can propel itself. At this stae,
it is the size of a grain of millet, is spherical io
foim. and brown io hue, and can swim freely
again, or walk by means of its foot. Now it hunts
about for some fixed or floating wood that is to
afford it food and shelter, that is to be at once its
castle unJ its larder.
When it has found the material necessary to its
existence, it creeps along the surface of the wood
until it discovers a part sufficiently soft and po
rous, when it begins boring n gallery Tor its future
home. After the tunnel is deep enough to con
tain it, the little round mollusc rapidly effects a
metamorphosis. It covers itself with a slimy
coat that at the end of three days becomes quite
solid. A new and larger shell is next secreted,
after which the Teredo changes its spheroid form
for one elongated like a worm. It requires about
three weeks for this singular transformation to be
completed. I'rof. Verrili states that on the coast
of New Kngland the Teredo nivalis produces its
young in May, and probably through the greater
part or all of the Summer. According to Quat
erfages, tho Teredo's life is rounded in a single
season. It perishes during the winter succeeding
Among the numerous products of the vegeta
ble world there are, perhaps, not many which are
more largely employed for useful and and scien
tific purposes than caoutchouc, considering, more
over, how primitive, in most cases, is the method
of its preparation, end how very wasteful, it is a
fortunate circumstance that the trees which yield
it are numerous and widely spread over different
countries. But, notwithstanding these many
sources of supply, fears have been frequently en
tertained that the substance in question will be
come scarcer and scarcer and ultimately fail al
together. Though we do not share in this appre
hension, it is gratifying to find that the Indian
Government have, for some lime past, had their
attention turned to the possibility of a scarcity
in the supply, and are not only endeavoring to
introduce from other countries the trees which
yield the best juice, but are taking steps to place
our indigenous trees under proper regulations
and to adopt the least wasteful methods of ob
taining the milk therefrom. Already Beeds of
the Para Caoutchouc tree have been introduced.
This tree is supposed to yield the best rubber, as
being more tenacious. purer, and more durable
than any other kind, and is therefore more largely
employed io the manufacture of articles in which
elasticity is required. The caoutchouc tree
of Mexico (known to botanists as CasliUon elas
tica and Markhamiana.) and a valuable kind
(Vuhen) found in Madagascar, have, we under
stand, been applied for. Some of our indigenous
plants, especially that fonnd so commonly in As
sam the Ficus elastica yield excellent rubber;
and a climber in the Straits, known as lbs Ur
ceola elastica, which attains an immense length,
though of an inferior quality, yields its juice
abundantly. In addition to these and many oth
er India rubber producing plants, several new
ones have recently been brought to notice. In
those interesting works, " The Naturalist on the
River Amazon," by Bates, and Kingston's " Nar
rative of the Banks of the Amazon," allusion is
made to Massaranduba, or Cow-tree, which yields
a juice stated to be aa rich in caoutchouc as the
best Para, and obtainable at about one-half the
price. The wood of this tree is also considered
one of the most valuable in the npland regions of
the Amazon lor resisting decay under alternate
exposure to air and water. Bat, coming nearer
home, we hare lately bad an opportunity of peru
sing a little brochure by Mr. Strettell, the
Deputy Commissioner of Forests in British Bar
mab. on caoutchouc obtained from a climber re
joicing in the long name of Chavannesia esculenta.
The exudation of this climber was it appears first
brought to notice same 40 years ago. and then re
ported on as nearly equal to the best South
American. Bat, like many other new products,
no steps were then taken to utilize it. The rub
ber, by chemical testa, would appear to be purer
than the Assam product Mr. Strettell has lound
this creeper "growing in prolific abundance all
over the forest, a large proportion of the trees be
ing entwined by it." In respect to soil, he writes,
the difficulty would be to name class ansoited
to it, for it seems to luxuriate everywhere. The
Hurmans, to Mrs trouble, lop off the branches,
and collect the milk from the amputated extremi
ties. From the estimate introduced by Mr. Stret
tell of the cost of cultivating a given area of this
creeper, and the probable oat-tarn, taking the
market value of the juice as guide, it woold seem
to be well worth the expenditure of the small
cam named to give this new Burmese product a
lair chance of competins with other kinds of
ladia rubber. Calcutta Englishman.
The Revolution. I. lt off he Battiest.
While all parts of the United States are pre
paring to celebrate the centennial of American
independence, it will be well to bear in mind the
principal battles by which that independence was
achieved. The following will be found to com
prise all the battles that took place in the fight
for freedom. They began April 19, 1775. They
closed Oct. 19, 1781 six years and six months,
the British sent 134,000 soldiers and sailors to
this war. The Colonists met them with 230.000
Continentals and 50.000 militia. The British
let loose Indians and equally savage Hessians.
The Colonies bad for their allies the brave and
courteous Frenchmen. The leading battles of
the war those particularly worthy of celebration
are Concord and Lexington, Banker's Hill,
Long Islaod, White Plains. Trenton, Princeton.
Ilenoington. Saratoga, .Monmouth, King 'a Moun
tain, Cowpen, Kutaw Springs. York town. These
are of natiooal interest. Many of the others
are especially local. The disposition is to cele
brate them all, victories and defeats, to recall
the deeds of oar ancestors, and hare a good time
generally. Our readers will do Weill to preserve

A Noble WITe.
During the revolution wbicb followed the rev
olution of Thaddeui Kosciusko, many of the
truest und best of the sons of that ill fated coun
try, were forced to flee for their lives, forsaking
home and friends. Of those who had been most
eager for the liberty of Poland, and most bitter
in the enmity aguinst Russia and Prussia, was
Michael Sobieski, whose ancestor had been king
a hundred and fifty years before.
Sobieski bud three sons in the patriot ranks,
and father and sons bad been of those who had
persisted in what the Russians bad beep pleased
to term rebellion, and a price had been set upon
The Archduke Constantino was eager to ap
prehend Michael Sobierki. and learned that the
wile of the Polish hero was at home in Cracow,
and he waited upon her.
4 Mudum,'' he said, speaking politely, for the
lady was beautiful and queenly, ''I think you
know where your husband and sons are billing T'
' I know, eir."
" If yon tell me where your husband is, yonr
sons shall both be pardoned."
" And shall be safe 7"
" Yes, madam, I swear it. Tell me where
your husband is concealed, and both you and
your sons shall be both safe and unharmed."
" Then, Sir." answered the noble woman, ris
ing with a dignity sublime, and laying her bund
upon ber bosom, " be lies concealed here in the
heart ol his wife and yon will have to tear this
heart oat to find him."
Tyrant as be was, the Archduke admired the
answer, and tbe spirit which had inspired it, and
deeming the good will of such e woman worth
securing, he forthwith published a pardon for the
father and sons.
Crimk ik England. Knglish journals are dis
posed to regard what there ia distinctive in
American civilization as something like excres
cence, sbonld take a critical survey of the field
nearer borne. Certainly in the matter of crime
tbe United States do not approach Great Brit
am. The infinite variety und alter brutality of
crime in England is to as astonishing. The Liv
erpool Weekly Albion of June 12th. contained
four columns filled with the details of terrible
crimes, many of them distinguished by some in
genious contrivance in the way of brutality. One
candidate for tbe gallows is charged with placing
fagots of burning wood under bia wife's clothes,
as she lay in bed in a state of intoxication. An
other husband, who had depended for some
months upon his wife's earnings for support,
found bis supplies growing shorter and shorter in
consequence ol ber failing health, and proceeded
to punish ber for presuming to be sick by a pro
cess of strangulation, wbicb throws "Othello's"
feats in that line into the shade. If these were
exceptional instances the deduction to be drawn
from them would not be so bad ; but they only
exceed in ingenuity scores of others. Altogether,
as an Eastern contemporary remarks, the crimi
nal record of England appears to be alarmingly
on the increase.

The most perfect home I ever sew was in s
little house, into tbe sweet incense of whose fire
went do costly things. Six hundred dollars serv
ed for a year's living of a father, mother, and
three children. Bit the mother was a creator of
home, and her relations with her children here
the most beautiful I have ever seen. Even a
doll and commonplace man was lifted ip and en
abled to do work for souls by the atmosphere
which this woman created. Kvery inmate of her
house involuntarily looked into ber lor the key
note of tbe day, and it always rang clear. From
the rosebud or tbe clover leaf, which in spite of
her bouse work, she always pat by oar plates at
breakfast, down to tbe essay or story she had on
hand to be read or discussed in tbe eveuing.
there was no intermission of her influence.
the always has been and always will be my
ideal of a mother, s wife. If to ber quick brain,
loving heart, and exquisite tact had been added
the appliance of wealth and the domain of wid. r
culture, hers would have been tbe best I have
ever seeo. It has been more than twenty years
since I crossed its threshold. I do not know
whether she is living or not. But as I see house
after boose in wbicb fathers, mothers, and t hil
dreo are dragging oat their lives in a haphazard
alternation of listless routine and unpleasant col
lision, I always think with a sigh of that little
cottage by the sea shore, and the woman who
was the light thereof, aud I find in the face of
mauy women and children, as plainly written
and aa sad to see in the daily newspaper columns
of " Personals " Wanted A Home." Exchange.
RoWino AOAissr tor Tidk. About thirty
miles above Wilmington, North Carolina, lived
three fellows, named respectively, Barbara, Grey,
and Stooe, on the banks of the North Kast river.
They came down to Wilmington in a small row
boat, aod made it fast to the wharf. They bad a
time of it in the city, bat lor fear tbey would be
dry before tbey got home, they procured a jug of
whisky and after dark, of a black night, too, tbey
embarked iu their boat, expecting ts reach horns
in the morning. Tbey rowed away with all the
energy that three half-tipsy fellows could muster,
keeping up their spirits io the darkness by pour
ing tbe spirits down.
At break of day they thought tbey must be
near home, seeing through the dim grey of tbe
morning a house on the river side. Stone said :
" Well BurbaiD, we have got to jour place at
' If this is my boose," said Barham, " somebody
has been putting ap a lot of outhouses since I
went away yesterday ; but I'll go ashore and look
about, and see where we are if, you will bold ber
Barham disembarks, takes observations, and
soon comes stumbling along back, and says :
' Well, I'll be whipped if we ain't at Wilming
ton yet ; and what's more the boat has been
hitched to the wharf all night."
A Sunday Scnoot, Incidkxt. A Vermont pa
per tells the story : " In a Sunday School, not a
hundred miles away, last Sunday, a young man
we won't call his name, as he is unusually mod
est made bis appearance, probably for the first
lime in years that he hud been in such a place,
and was invited by one of the teachers, a deacon,
to take a seal with his class. In tho cour.-e of
the lessons the question came up 1 Who were the
Sudducees?' No one in the class answered it,
and finally the teacher turn 'd to oar friend and
said, 1 Brother, can't you tell us who tbe Suddu
cees were ? ' Well, we suppose no question coald
bo a.-ked by mortal lips but what the individual
referred to would have some answer ready. This
however, was a poser, as bis acquaintance with
Scripture personages is not very extensive. How
ever, after a moment's thought, be replied, 'I
don't exactly know, but as near as I can recollect,
they were a bard set of dncks.' Tbe good dea
con pondered a moment, and then clutching the
meaning of tho slang phrase, replied, ' Yes, broth
er, I believe you are right, they were a bard set
worse than the Universulists.'"
Gkt Closer Togstnisr. Tbo men met who at
first sight hated each other. There was a mutual
repuUiveness between them. Neither would ever
consent to be introduced to the other, or remain
in his company under any circumstances. Both
ate at ths same table where perhaps twenty oth
ers dined, but they were always at opposite ends.
At some fancied grievance, one day, one threw a
dish at tbe other's held, and it required the inter
position of friends to prevent what olherwise
would doubtless have been a tragical scene.
Things went on this way for months, the hatred
of each growing more intense, and must navecul
minated in serious trouble to both if it continued
much longer. Circumstances, however, threw
them together in each a way, one day as to com
pel them to recognize each other. Immediately
the scales of prejudice fell from their eyes, and
each saw in tbe other what always had existed
congenial spirits and they became ever after and
are to this day firm and true friends.
Sue Coct.dn't Rrsisi It. The Elmira Gazelle
givea the following acene in Eldbndge Park :
" Ob, do be mine," be said, attempting to draw
her a little nearer to bis end of the seat. She
made herself rigid and heaved a sigh. " I'll be a
good man and give up all of my bad habits," he
urged. No reply. " I'll never drink another
drop,'' he continued. " Aod giva up chewing"
No reply. " And join the church " She only
shook her bead. " And give you a diamond en
gagement ring." he esid in desperation. Then
the maiden lifted ber drooping eyes to bis, and,
leaning ber frizzles on bis shoulder, trembling,
murmured into bis ravished ear : " Ob Edward,
yon yon are so good 1" And here tbey aat and
sat until the soft arms of night that dusky nurse
of the world bad folded them from sight, pon
dering, planning, thinking she ol the diamond
ring, and be of bow on earth be was to gel it.
To Avoid Valuations. Sembiios overheard
two scientific gentleman in a private conversation.
One says, " Doc, I Bee you have yonr shingle
oil as a regular family physician ; bow is that 7
I thought you were intending io practice the
veterinary." " Well, I'll tell you. Colonel : I did
practice at that, and expected to keep on at it ;
but it'a so awkward, sometimes, you know ; a
valuable horse dies oa your bands, aod there's a
devlisb sight of talk about it everybody specu
lates upon what the bone was worth, and bow
be might have been saved ; tod there's a chance
for a snit of damages malpractice, and all that ;
bat in this family physician line, if a child slips
tbe hooks, or somebody's wife or mother-in-law
dies, the ground is dag up and turned over on the
whole story, and there s none of that foolish talk.
