Jamea llaairer Trustee, ts. The Union Fixe and
Marina Insurance Company of New Zealand.
April term, 1831.
Bs it remsmbsred that on the 2Lst day of April
of this present term this class came on for trial
and was triad bafore the Hon. Lawrence SIcCally,
presiding Jmticj, and a foreign jury, when after
crideacs hid been adduced on both sides, notes
whereof are hereunto annexed and mide a part
hereof, and after connsel had addressed the jury,
the presiding Jade instructed the jary that they
would find a verdict for the defendant unless the
eridaaea satisfied them that the Tessel was n total
losi on or before midnight of Jans Gth, 1330 ; that
the qao3tion of total loss or not was one of fact
for tne jary to fiod an the evidence ; that a Teasel
was a total loss whan she was no longer of use for
the purposes of a Teasel, bat that " total loss" did
not necessarily require " destruction" of the Tessel.
The jury found a rerdict for the t)lamtif, to
which defenlant's connsel excepted as bainz
against the law and the etidenoe, and oa the 25th
day of April moTjd the Court that. the said verdict
be sei aside and a new trial had oa the aforesaid

To which ruling the defendant excepted, and
such exceptions being reduced to writing and
found conformable to the truth, are hereby certified
Dated this 30th day of April, 1831.
Signed Li whence McCcllt,
Presiding Justice of Term.
Kaunhli, one of the crew of the Eugenia Brtgjt:
Ljft Tessel because she was fall of water. Could
not pump her onL It came in faster than we could
do so. l'arnped from Saturday p. si. to Sunday
r. sr. ill niat. Vivi down and she was settling
forward. looks 1 down forecastle. Siw she was
fall ; all fall. Via left because it was dangerous to
remain on board.
Cross-examined: She was about At
' 6 o'clock took our own things ashore. Cams back
and waited for captain. Paraped again. Left
finally after dark. She was anchored fast. AVe
slept at landing. Mists and rigging all right.
Sills furled. Went aboard lion J y morning early.
VesssI was still afioat, but the dscilo id of lumber
had floated away. She was loaded for Hilo and
Houokaa; some freight for Oakala. Machinery
and general merchandise ; iron wire, railroad iron,
mid machinery. This was princip il part of freight.
She was full of water when we returned on Monday
morning. L? ft anchor .and moored to buoy.
We anslacked cable and cat ber loose from baoy
and let her drift ashore to save freight. Went to
pieses soon after she went ashore.
Keliikalaea, another of the crew, gave evidence
to the same effect.
Ferrier, mate of the Teasel: On arriving at
Haelo wind was blowing on shore from K.E. and
N. Shifting on the Tuesday, blew so hard we
could not land. JI03I water came In on Friday.
Kept pamping. Water kept gaining nntil evening
of Sunday. Crew refused to stand by, as the vessel
was sinking. Captain did not want to leave.
Asked crew to stay as long as they could. Captain
refused to go oa shore before dark. Vessel sinking
ana water gaining ; lour or nve ieet oi water in
her I and captain went ashore in last boat. She
wis opjain; for and nfr. Balk-heads opening
and shotting. Baams all working from Friday
morning; worked athwtrt ship. Hid got thacoal
oat; pat all lumber below that wa could, to ballast
and get load o3 deck. Stanchions all working
every time she rolled. Thought we were justified.
ShiD good for nothing when wo left on Sund.iv
evening. Flanks and seams open. Abreast of
fore-rigging a seam was opsa about f oar feet long,
just above water's edge. Saw that from below ;
about half an inch wide.
Cross-examined: There was some lumber on
deck on Sunday night. Not there on Monday
morning. She would have sank if lumber in hold
had net kept ber up. She was loaded with
railroad iroa, mils, and iron wire. She-was
anchored and moored to buov; one anchor
down. Wd cat rops and uislackeu chain s) as to
let her go ashore to s ire c trgo. Took a short lime
to drift oa shore ; about ten minutei. Ma3ts were
iii-exazlned: Coall not havo got her off. Had
disehirgad her Haelo a trgo. Did not know if she
was insured. We wjre delayed by ctlim.
Daniel Foiter: Have lived nmitaaa years in
Honolulu. Am a ship carpsntjr, auJ owner of
coasting vessels. Used to impact vessels. Have
heard evidsaco of previous witaess33. In my opinion
they were parfectly jastified in abandoning
IieroaSaadiy evening. -Who was not worth much
mir3 oa Sanity evening when they left than oa
Mond ty morning. S'aoald call her a wrecked
that Sunday evening.
Sis was not a total loss as
long as anything was in sight. Think I would havo
cat her adrift to go ashore for benefit of all concerned.
: I do not regard tho vessel as of
any uaa for the parposej of a vessel after Sunday
evening if the evidence I have beard is true. If
there had been no cargo it would hare been for
the benefit of tho ship to beach her, for she was
worth more on tho beach than in tho condition
Captain Jackson: Retired commander Royal
Navy. Heard the eridenco of Ferrier. Should
call her a wrecked Tessel. Derelict on Sunday
evening. A proper case for abandonment.
Cross-examined: Equally derelict on Monday
morning, and proper to be abandoned.
Tho defendant's connsel put in and road tho
protest and rested.
'Wasted Effort to lis Fanny.
Take, as a very simple illustration, Ibe case
of the young man who li.nl been offered a sail.
cer of delicately salted ico cream by-two young-
ladios, who waited in convulsive glee lor tlio
first grimace and its attendant remarks. Not
a gesture or word betrayed ho had noticed it
at all. Still talking lightly of last night'
gorrain and to-morrow's tennis, lie finished
the ontiro saiicerfnl, then, bowing slightly,
left tho room. Was ever "Inn" more delicately
spoiled ? Tako again the caso of a certain
college professor, who had almost
practical joking on tho faculty, not by
punishing, but by foiling- tho intendod fun nf
tho students, intormcd one night that tlio
students were painting tho avails of the
chapel, "very well," ho itaid quietly, "let
them paint; but tell mo ivhen they are
through." Dressing hastily, ho wont about
tho town, rousing every painter in tlio place,
and as the last student went out of tho chapel
n dozou artisans went in. Noit morning when
there was an unusually large attendance at
prayers, behold the calcimined walls as fair
as ever 1 The dignity of the collcgo had nut
been allowed to bo insulted, yet never a student
was ever questioned, blamed, marked or
expelled. In the same mantior, when tho
tongue of the bell had been removed one nighl,
another was in its place before d iwn, nod the
astonished students were summoned to their
devotions at tho usual hour. Again, when the
wheel of the organ disappeared and tlm
organist had been secretly informed that his
services would not be required the next day,
one of tho very delinquents avas called npon to
take his place, finding, to his chagrin, that the
keys responded dniifully to his touch If it is
the "silent organ" that " loudest chants tho
master's requiem," in this caso it was certainly
the organ's rnnsic that chanted loudest
tho humiliation of the guilty. No wonder that
the students at that institutiun havo about
decided that what may be called hazing the
professors does not pay. Said tho boys nt

lie, for ho always believes His I"

Bevivino Kxd Gloves. To revive old kid
gloves, make a thick mucihigo by boiling n

Spasisit Stomachic and Cordial. The
well-known fragrant garden favorite, the
swecrscented or lemon verbena, seems to havo
other qualities than those of beauty and odor,
for which it is usually cultivated. The author
of a recent avork, "Among tho Sinisli People,"
describes it as being systematically
gathered in Spain, where it is regarded as a
hue stomachic and cordial. It is cither used
in the form of a cold decoction, sweetened, or
fivo or six leaves are put into a teacup and
hot tea poured- upon them. The author says
that not only is tho flavor delicious, bat that
if it be used one need nover suffer from flatulence,
nervousness, diarrhoea or loss of appetite.
How to PnxvEST Glass rnoir. Crackixo.
A Leipsic journal, avhich makes a speciality
of matters relatjng to glass, gives a method
which it asserts will prevent lamp chimneys
from cracking. The treatment will
not only render lamp chimneys, tumblers, and
like articles mora durable, but may bo applied
with advantage to crockery, stoneware porcelain,
etc. The chimneys, tumblers; etc.,
are put into a pot filled with cold water, to
which some common salt has been added.
The water is well boiled over a fire, and then
allowed to cool slowly. When she articles
are taken out and washed. tllOV will bo found
to resist afterward any eudden changes of
temperature. Tho process is Bimply uue of
annulling, and tho slower tho cooling pari oi
it is conducted the moro effective will be the
