TIia fniinwiiur anecdote of a confidence man, told by M. Pasquier, who was a prefect of police in Paris under tJie first Emperor : A magnificent carriage drove up one day to the door of a rich jeweler in Parin, and a well lookin?, important, and not over dressed gentleman alighted w-m I - 1 1 t ... .1 from K, lie saia inai ue woniea a i-umpiew: din" vamre, consisting of a lady's et of diamond ornaments, trie price limuea to w,uw irin. equal to $40,000. From several designs, which he examined with the evidently practised eye of a connoisseur, he selected one, which he desired mifrht hp printed within five days, and insisted on leaving 4,000 francs with the jeweler as a de- nosit. He also selected a Tins, worth IW trancs which he beoed might be sent to him the next . . F? . r. - : li... I day, givin? his address ai rrince uargarm, noie lloliande, Hue tie la raix, wmcii was a more lusu ionable house in 1805 than it is in 1862. The jeweler's messenger called at the appointed lime, and was shown into an apartment in the se cond storv. There were five or six liveried lackeys in the antechamber, one of whom escorted him to the Prince, who received and examined the ring Daid for it and presented ten francs to the mecsen get, who returned home, joyfully congratulating the jeweler on having 60 weaitny ana uoerai a cus tomer. On the fifth day. as agreed, the jeweler carried home he diamonds, and found the Prince in his study, sittin? before his cylindrical secretaire His Highness minutely inspected the jewels with a glass, and suddenly one of the valets announced "Prince Dolgorouki." "Ah! my brother-in law," exclaimed his Highness. " I do not wish him to see the present with which I intend surprising his sister. Request him to stay in the drawing room, and I will immediately join him." Touchin? the table, the cylinder moved and the secretaire closed. The diamonds were within it but on the table was an open box filled with plumb leather bags, and numerous rouleaux of louis were huddled together confusedly. On his arrival the jeweler had noticed all this treasure, and more es pecially a large llussia leather porttolio, well lined with bank notes, the rough edges ol which were visible. The Prince quitted the room, saying that he would immediately return. The polite jeweler begged him not to hurry himself. Iwenty minutes elapsed, which seemed like three hours to the jew eler, over whom a vagne apprehension crept. The door opened Oh ! here is his Highness, he thought No. It was the master of the hotel, who asked if he was waiting for any one. " For the return of Prince Gargarin." the jeweler answered. I have just sold him a set of diamonds for 200.000 francs Are jou his secretary ?" The maitre d? hotel shook bis head and sadly said, 44 1 am his dupe, and so are you, I suppose." Impossible ! The diamonds are shut up in that secretaire. Besides, look at all this money. Alas, the leathern bag which he seized was filled with nails. The rouleaux were of wood. The Russian leather portfolio contained scraps of waste paper. However, there was one consolation the diamonds were safe. A locksmith was sent for, the secretaire opened, and found empty! It stood flush up against a wall, in which a hole had been made, and there being a corresponding hole in the back of the secretaire, the jewels had readily been removed to the next room. The jeweler, as he well might be, was in despair. All the servants were his except the valet de chambre, who was the confederate of the Prince. Ihey had decamped without suspicion at the door of the hotel. All efforts to discover them were ineffectual. The poor jeweler, nearly ruined by this robbery, had to remove his much diminished business to another part of Paris, where his name was sunk in that of his partners. Many years after he re ceived a message from one Monsieur Teron, de scribed as a gentleman holding an official situation, who desired to purchase some rin.?s. Instead of sending a clerk, he went himself, and was shown into a partially lighted bed-chamber, where, in the invalid in bed, he recognized his old customer the cidetant Prince Gargarin. The recognition was not mutual, and the jeweler held his tongue and bided his time. From the rings exhibited, a few were selected to the value of 6,000 francs, and M. Teron, dec lar ing that he had not the means of paying in cash, asked if the jeweler would exchange against a curious old snuff-box, which he declared to be of great value. This was an octagon shaped china snuff-box, ornamented with ten miniatures by Clinchsleil, 6et in gold and rubies. No one knew its value so well as the jeweler, for it was one which had been stolen from himself shortly before Prince Gar?ann s visit. Moreover, he knew, what few others did, that it had a secret spring, by means of which all the miniatures could betaken out of their settings, and their reverses exhibited, on which were painted subjects treated, with admirable skill, in the indelicate style peculiar to the age of Louis XV. Without any hesitation, the jeweler valued the box at 50,000 francs, which was much more than M. Teron expected. The jeweler, on the other hand, said it was probably worth even more, and made this proposal : 44 Take the rings yon have chosen, and put the box in an envelope, stating it to be my property, it it does not bring more than 50,000 francs, you shall have the rings for noth ing." Gratified at the idea of being able to obtain the rings without opening his purse, M. Teron assent ed. Two of his neighbors, one of them & notary, were sent for, and the invalid asked, 44 Who shall fix the price of the box?" 44 You, sir," said the jeweler. 44 1 will lay a wager that you will value it at 500,000 francs. Let ine tell you in private a circumstance connected with this box, which will enable you to perceive its real value." M. Teron, curious and anxious enough now, gave his consent, and the two referees retired. Then the jeweler said, 44 Sixteen years ago that snuff box was stolen from me, when I traded on the Boulevard des Italians a few days before I was robbed of 200,000 francs' worth of diamonds by yourself under the assumed name of Prince Gar garin. My evidence relative to the loss of the box is on the records of the police. You now declare the box to be yours. I hare already sworn that I purchased it at a public sale. The man who sold it to me is still alive. I know a secret about the box which will further prove my ownership a se cret which you have not discovered. Unless you fully repair all the wrongs you have done me, I shall at once have you arrested as a thief. I give you five minutes to determine." Within that time, thus driven into a corner, M. Teron, who really was an invalid, handed his keys to the jeweller, and bade him open a drawer, in which he could find 300,000 francs in billets de banque, and signed a check for 200 000 francs more, payable at his banker's that same day. This done, the witnesses were recalled. 44 Gentlemen,' said the jeweler, exhibiting the bank notes and check, 44 You sec that M. Teron has become aware of the value of the box. He baa purchased it back from me for fiHiundred thousand francs. Is it not so T 44 Yls," sighed M. Teron, 41 1 have given him that sum." Then, said the jeweler, 44 here is the box, and I will let yon have the rings into the bargain. You may explain the mystery as you please ; for my part, 1 promise eternal secrecy ." The jeweler retired, leaving the witnesses in amaze and M. Teron in dismay. The notary was unable to keep silent, and the police eventually unraveled the mystery, though the jeweler observ jed his promise of secrecy. M. Teron, who was so immensely rich as to leave three million of francs to his heirs, never recovered from the mor tification of having been detected and compelled to refund, with compound interest. 05 Always bequeath to your wife as moch money as you can.

Mr. Armstrong, of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, invents rifled ordnance that will knock any Bhip to pieces. He is knighted and the Admiralty is benighted. 1801. The Admiralty recovers, and invents iron ships that resist uny known cannon balls. 1862. Sir William Armstrong invents a gun that smashes the iron ships into blacksmithereens. The Admiralty collapses. 1803. The Admirlty re-expands and invents platina ships, fastened with diamond cement, and air William Armstrong's balls fly to pieces like bon-bons. Mr. Gladstone doubles the income tax. 1804. Sir William Armstrong invents brazen thunderbolts (supposed to be the original Jupitcrs) and in a pleasing experiment sends the greater part of the British beet to tne bottom ot the sea. 1865. The Admiralty invents torpedo vessels which sail under water, and below any range of guns. Sir illiam Armstrong tears his hair and swears in the Newcastle dialect. 1806. Sir William Armstrong invents a vertical run that discharges Greek fire straight down, and a second time he destroys the greater part of the British fleet. The Lords of the Admiralty are about to hang themselves, when a thought strikes them, and they don t. Mr. Gladstone again doubles the income tax. 1807. Dr. Cumming, who has for some weeks been having in his coals by the sack only, suJdcnly proclaims the Millennium. As there is now to be peace everywhere, the Admiralty does not invent anything, but waits to see. In order to test Dr. Cumming's veracity, and to find out whether lions will lie down with kids, the Zoological Society (against the advice of their ex cellent Secretary, Mr. Sclater) lets loose their biggest lion while a charity school is in the gar dens. As the lion, instead of lying down with i kid, only lies down to digest him, the Admiralty thinks there is Borne mistake somewhere, and de termines to invent a new fleet. Mr. Gladstone once more doubles the income tax 1868. The Admiralty invents u stone fleet, with cork keels, and denes Sir William Armstrong. 1809. Sir William Armstrong invents the Han nibal, or Alp-Shell, which contains the strongest vinegar, and melts the stone ships. Having for the third time destroyed the British fleet, he is raised to the peerage as Lord Bomb. 1870. The Admiralty invents an aerial fleet, which sails in the clouds, out of shot range, and the First Lord takes a double sight at Sir William Armstrong. Mr. Gladstone a fourth time doubles the income tax. 1871. Lord Bomb invents a balloon battering train, and in an experimental discharge brings down all the British fleet into the German Ocean 1872. The Admiralty, in desperation, invents a subterranean fleet, which is to be conveyed by tun nels to all the colonies, but Mr. Gladstone blandly suggests that as everybody now pays twice his in come in taxes, the people may object to further im posts unless some proof of economy is given. Government, therefore, stop the pensions of t hundred superannuated clerks, discharge some extra nijrht porters at the Treasury, and bring in estimates for the subterranean fleet. 1873. Lord Bomb invents his Typhseons, or earthquake shells, and suffocates the British fleet in the Jasrnania tunnel. Mr. Gladstone a tilth time doubles the income tax. 1874. The Emperor of the French proclaims the Muennium, which of course immediately occurs ; no more war ships are wanted, and the collectors remit the quarter's income tax not yet due. Lord Bomb invents his Volcano Fireworks in honor of the occasion, and by some accident burns up the public. (7 What color does flogging give to an unruly boy ? It makes him yell oh !

Minixter of th Interior, Jte , dV., oV. We the undersigned, hare, at your request, examined the Ho tier on board the steamer Kilacea, ana now make the rot lowing retiort : In the first place, we consider it to be a tittrvt and itrong well built Boiler. In fact, owing to the great quantity of Uny and bmee inside, to give It additional HtrengtJi, has caused, in our opinion, unequal expansion and contraction, which has caused the I'Uite of the fire to eraeJk, and the necessity of putting on several patches, which make it as good and strong if not stronger than ever. .Many may suppose that the cause of patch ing arose from thin pi ares, burnt thin on account of the large quantities of scale and sediment in the Boiler, but such is not the case, as the Boiler now is clean ana clear or all scale and sediment as it is possible for it to be, and we have no hesita tion in giving our opinion that, with the same g'Kxl care it has hitherto received, it will last good and strong several years longer. (Signed) THOMAS HUGHES, Engineer. 3 tf JACOB BROWN, PROSPECTUS. THE HAWAIIAN STEAM AND GENER AL INIER-ISLAND NAVIGATION COMPANY. Capital $100,000. IT IS PROPOSED TO FORM A NEW COM pany. under the above title, on the following basis : 1st. The Company to consist principally of all the Sugar Companies, Planters, Merchants and FreiKbters on the different Islands. No one of which to hold a preponderating iotereMt in the Company, or if they do, to have only the same vote as share holders, with less interest. 2d. It is proposed to purchase the steamer "Kilauea, as well as the charter privileges, buildings, Slc, of the Hawaiian tea in Navigation Company, at a fair valuation. 3d. To apply to the Legislature now in session for a new Char ter, extending the time of the present one to fifteen years ; and to grant the new Company a subsidy for carrying the mails, and the privilege of having steamers of a size to suit the trade, and to be allowed also to own anil run schooners if they choose ; hut the schooners to have no special privileges. The Company to for feit all their privileges should they fail for twelve months to run a steamer of not less than led tons. 4th. To run the "Kilauea" in the meantime, as long as she pays her expenses, or until she can be sold, when a suitable boat is to be purchased or ordered, such as the Company may decide upon. 5th. To purchase clipper Schooners, or admit them into the Company at a valuatiou. The Company to run them until they find by experience, whether it will be to their interest to replace them with, or convert them into steam vessels. It will be seen that on this principle, the Planters and the Public, as well as the new Company, place themselves in an absolutely safe position, for they will have it in their power to command the freights, and to run steamers or sailing Vessels, or both, whichever proves to be must profitable and most to the general interest, whilst the planters will never be left without vessels to bring their produce to market. The object of dividing up the shares is, besides the evident one of interesting the whole community, that the boats can be run without insurance, as the interest that each erson holds being small, and also each share holder owning a share in a number of comparatively small ves sels, one insures the other ; whilst should their large steamer be lost, the schooners or steam-schooners would do a good business and pay interest ou her cost and their own, until a new vessel could be obtained. With regard to the Charter to be applied for, no delay need take place in applying for shares in the new Company on that account, as until it is obtained the purchase will not go iuto effect, unless by consent of the Shareholders. No cash advances will be required by Shareholders, as the ap proved notes of any Merchant, Planter or citizen, will be taken for the property to be purchased. No one applying for shares will be bound to take them nntil he approves of the steps taken, and resolutions passed at the nrsi meeting or tne subscribers, the date or which will be duly advertised ; and if he does nut approve of same, he can withdraw his application. Application for shares will be received by the undersigned in the form hereto annexed. It is proposi ti that no one firm or in dividual be allowed to take more than ttMHI interest in the new Company, or if they do, that they will have the same number of votes as a shareholder holding spOOll stock. All applications for shares will be granted in the order they are received by the undersigned. W. L. UKKE.V, Secretary to the Hawaiian Steam and General Inter-lslaud Navigation Co.
