1844. THE POLYNESIAN. 23 At the request of Mr. Pelly, we most cheerfully make room for the following cor respondence, and , we cannot refrain from expressing our own high sense of his mag nanimity in releasing Mr. Charlton from the sum awarded him by the Jury. In this in stance the scripture precept, "do good to them that hate you," is duly honored. We sincerely trust that the lesson may not be lost upon the offender, but that he will fully appreciate the motives which have actuated Mr. Pelly in this step. While some may doubt the expediency of not allowing justice to take its full course, none can withold their commendation of the generosity from which it sprung. Verdict of the Jury in the Case of Pelly vs. Charlton. The undersigned Jury, have come to the following verdict: that the charge brought by Mr. Pelly against Mr. Charlton, is sustained, and the defend ant guilty, but in consideration of Mr. Charl ton's pecuniary circumstances, the Jury have assessed the damages at three thousand, four hundred and fifty dollars, with costs. Robt. W. Wood, (foreman,) William Ladd, Robert C. Wyllic, Lawrence C. Gray, Jno. R. von Pfister, Hiram Grimes, 'John xMunn, Edward H. Russell. General Miller: Dear Sir, You are aware that I can have, at this time, no communication with Mr. Charlton, but must request you, as our nation's representative, to communicate to him, that if he will pay my lawyer, Mr. Perkins, his bill, amounting to Five Hund red dollars, and the cost of Court, which Mr. Ricord will doubtless communicate to him, and make these payments by, or before 12 o'clock, at noon tomorrow, I will remit the balance of the verdict which I received against him. I know that you, my dear Sir, will appre ciate my motives, and feel that I was influ enced by any other than pecuniary motives in instituting my suit against him. I have the Honor to be, Dear Sir, Your Obedient, Humble Serv't, Geo. Pelly. Honolulu, June 20, 1S44. General Miller: Sir, I am greatly obliged to you for your kind communication of this date, in forming me that Mr. Pelly generously re mitted the whole of the judgment obtained yesterday by him against me, except the costs. Permit me to say to you, and through you to Mr. Pelly, that I very much regret having ever made those charges against him, which were so injurious, and which I now no long er believe to be true. The justice of the verdict I cannot dispute, and 1 shall do noth ing to disturb it. Please communicate to Mr. Pelly my thanks for this very generous conduct, and believe me I shall ever entertain sentiments of high regard to you for your personal kind ness. I remain Your Obedient Servant, (Signed) Richard Charlton. Honolulu, June 20, 1844. The foregoing is a true copy of the orig inal, archieved in Her Britannic Majesty's Consulate General. (Signed) William' Miller, Consul General. Honolulu, June 20, 1844. George Pelly, Esq.. : Dear Sir, I have great pleasure in handing to you the enclosed copy of a letter from Mr. Charlton, after the full vindication of your character, by the verdict of the jury yesterday. Your spontaneous offer to remit all the pe cuniary damages, does you great honor, and fills me with satisfaction, for you well know that long before the trial was instituted, the calumnies circulated against you found no credence with me, and that I gave public proofs that they did not. Perhaps it may be said that the verdict of the jury itself, affords you little triumph, for it was only what was just, but your generos ity in remitting the damages, under all the aggravating circumstances of the Trial, is a triumph of the highest order, and a trait in your character, which more than ever rec ommends you to the respect and esteem of, Dear Sir, Your Obedient Servant, k (Signed) William Miller, Consul General Received of Richard Charlton, by the hands of George Pelly, Esquire, Five Hun dred Dollars, being in full of my proffession 1 services in the case of Pelly v$.

I In this town, on Tuesday the 25th inst., of inflam mation of the brain, Miss Sophia K. Marshall, aged 30 years. Death, amid the crowded circles of our native lands, snatches his victims, and they pass from be fore us in quick succession; the young and old, in fancy and manhood, the high in station and the low ly and humble ; wealth, intellect, and genius, all alike sink from our view; and the grave hardly clo ses over them before their places are fdled, and the human pulse beats as strong and hopeful as before. Not so with us. One from our number leaves an unfilled chasm. And when that one is drawn from the circle of our lady-rosidents, the void becomes the more drear. The subject of of this notice had been but little over two months among us, but in that time she had endeared herself to a warm circle of friends. Her character gave assurance to the bright anticipations of those w ho well knew her, and it may be permit ted to one who enjoyed an intimate acquaintance with tho deceased, briefly to allude to it. To her friends she was the soul of affection. Of a most self-denying disposition, her constant aim was to be useful to others. Active in the charitable and benevolent circles of her own town (Charlcstown) had her life been spared, she would have been none the less so here. Her mind was well stored with knowledge, and her influence over the young pecu liarly happy. A devotional spirit attended her in hor daily walks; indeed her thoughts wero early giv en to religion, and she embraced its truths with a quiet faith and steady hope, so that when near her dying hour, she was enabled in earnest eloquence to exclaim, her eyes lighted up with peculiar brilliancy, as she contemplated the happy change that awaited her: 44 1 know that my Redeemer liveth." Her death-bed was a beautiful illustration of how calmly a believer dieth. The following beautiful lines of poetry were ad dressed to her by a sister, upon her leaving the United States. Ho w emphatically was the wish breathed in the concluding versos, answered ! TO SOPHY FROM LIZZY. With love, and hope, and pleasures pure, Dear sister, may thy life be crowned, And Time, in his unstaid career, Spread health and joy thy footsteps round. But yet I would not have thy days Wholly to ease and pleasure given : I would not that thy bliss on earth, Make thee forget thy hopes of heaven. But I would ask for one I love, As much of fortune's dazzling gear, As many of this earth's fleeting joys, As thou canst well improve, or bear. And I would ask a spirit firm, To aid thee in affliction's hour, To bear thre through ills thou canst not shun, And shield thee from Temptation's power. For though the world seems bright and fair And all is joy and beauty now, Troubles will come and sorrow shed Its heavy gloom upon thy brow. And when that hour shall come to thee, ' As come to all we know it must, When thy light footstep shall be stay'd, And thy loved voice in death be hush'd, May'st thou thy last dread summons hear, With humble hope, and steadfast eye, And with a firm unshrinking heart, Wait thy appointed hour to die, SHIPPING INTELLIGENCE FOR THE PORT OF HONOLULU. 1814.
