sanctuary of God ? The only other remark
which I will make turn ihe thought ju sug
gested. Who can estimate the value of a kind
word to a stranger? Whocan foresee the effrrt
which it may have on a youth in this city ' W ho
know how furh a word would go to the heart ;
how gratefully it would be remembered ; what
an influence it might have on future life? Such
youths ofiener walk the Vtreets of the city, dis
pirited and sad, heartless and discouraged, than
we are aware. Everything scemsdark to them.
No one knows them. No onc'seems to care for
them. No one would enre if they w ere pick ; no
one cares if they can find no employment; no
one woulJ weep if they should go heavy-hearted
into some miserable cellar and die. They hare
left father and mother, and home, and here they
can find none whose sympathy. they can gain, or
who have any concern in their weal r woe.
Let me say to you, Christian friends, that kind
nessshown to n stranger hoy, or any other stran
ger, is never forgotten. Let me further express
tor what it is worth, the" deep conviction of my
own soul, that among. the ways of doing good,
which would be most "far-reaching in its influ
ences, and most favorable to - religion, and most
acceptable to our 'God, would be appropriate
Christian interest in the great number of stran
gersespecially youths that visit this city.
And let me, finally, remind you of what the
Saviour will say to the righteous in the great
day "I WAS A STRANGER, AND TE TOOK ME IN";
and of what he will say to the wicked "1 was

The productions of the islands could be aug

And not only would the"al.origine be" unmolest

of industrious alorers from other countries, and
the nietiing of plantations in all the "Islands,

sumed, (or .rather employed, for they were de

are glad to find that our reasoning is regarded,
.by the most thoughtful men in the community,
as sound, and the facts staled incontrovertible.
Since our last issue, we have received a com

want of laborers, giving some reasons why that
destitution exists. A crowd of matter obliges
us to defer the publication of "Justus" till next
We fully agree with our correspondent in the
belief, that one reason wby there is so great a
want, in. this respect, is to be attributed to the
late recognition, on the part of the government,
of the right of the people to a fee-simple in the
soil. And were the nation increasing, rather
than rapidly diminishing, it ,wouM be no cause
for discouragement, that, for the preseur, the
number of laborers on the Islands was inadequate
to the labor necessary to meet the wants of an

Throughout the week there has been a politi
cal calm in all parts of the continent. In Paris
the only subject of interest is, the discussion in
the Legislative Assembly, and in "the places
where men most do congregate," on the proposed
grant to the President. The commission a
pointed to consider this matter are still in delib
eration, ami some days will pass before their re
port be made known. In another column we
have referred to Louis Napoleon's application,
and commented upon it in the spirit which, pnong
all right-thinking men, it has called forth. The
President is evidently on the lookout for popu
larity. In the early part of the week he visited
St. Quentin.on the 'opening of the railway ,and
gave away in sums, to workingmen and chari
table institutions, nearly 20,000 francs.

Duke of Holstem-Launburg, (the King ot Den

had to ileal wun tne special interests oi ine utr

The Ostee Zeitung states that the unfavora

Austria, as by a caiise personal to himself. The

The probability is, that, without some such
guaranty, the leading European governments
will combine to secure the independence of coun
tries contiguous t. the American continent, which
may not be strong enough to protect themselves.
Even now,umors prevail that France and Eng
land, disgusted at the lawiess proceedings per
petrated in Cuba, will secure, by a treaty, the
continuance of that island to Spain prompted
thereto as much by a feeling of self-interest for
their own possessions in the West Indies and that
of St Domingo.as by disgust at the events which
have recently been witnessed. Such a treaty is
by no means improbable, ami, however slistaste
ful it may be to the American government, they
must attribute it lo their own lethargy or indif
ference in not sooner adopting measures to su
persede exterior aid. - If the people of Cuba had
evinced any dissatisfaction with the condition of
things in that island if they bail made an un
successful attempt at dissevering the Spanish
yoke the European powers would have paused
before adopting such a policy as the one to which
rumor refers; but, in the absence of all provoca
tion, they will think that what has teen done in
Cuba may be perpetrated elsewhere, and that
prevention is better than cure. This will be held
to justify their inteference; and the natural
quickness of instinct, where self-interest is con
cerned, in which the Americans excel, might.by
anticipating the necessity of such a step, have
prevented it. It may not yet be too late.

Revolution in Lighting,'. Heting, a.i
Motive Power. -A contract has been made to
light and heat the Astor House in this city, hy
the apparatus invented by Mr. Henry M. Paine,
of Worcester, Mass. .We ..learned some tiw '
ago that xMr. Paine had been successful, ap
plying his invention to the printing office of the
Baltimore Clipper, and if he fully succeeds in
the application of the new principle to the satis
faction of the proprietors of the Astor House, a
revolution'will be the consequence in our whole
system of lighting, heating, and driving ma
chinery. We have no knowledge of anything
respecting the invention, more than we have ob
taiued from disinterested parties in Massachu
setts and Washington ; but we are prepared to
believe, from our reports, that Mr. Paine has
now overcome all bheiacles, and is about to ive
to the world one of the greatest Messing ever
known to humanity. Parties in this city nave
entered into bonds to give the inventor one
million of dollars for his invention,, wun a vjew
to have it generally applied to practice ; anu a

The "Courier des Havre" states that Mr.
Judd, the Envoy from the Sandwich Iislands,
who had visited Paris with the object of demand

for the damage done to the Fortifications of
Honolulu and the capture and detention ot sev
eral steamers has left without succeeding in bis
mission except that both parties had accepted
the good offices of the English Government.

Louis Napoleon had made a speech at the in-

received from the Pope a superb M usal, deco-

gold cross which once belonged to Charlemaspie.

differences between France and England upon
the Greek question had been amicably arranged.

This augmentation results firorn an increase of j
