X Day Anion? Cannibals :
Or Adventure of n Whaleman at the
n. American whalcship Congress, Capt.
gtraaburg, sailed from New Bedford in June,
1503, on a cruise fur' the North Pacific.
After touching at Sydney, she called at Ilivaoa,
or Dominique, one of the Marquesas Islands, to
attain water and fresh provisions. Arriving be
fore the harbor ol Puamau, Jaquarjr 13, two
boat were fitted out with articles of trade, such
,s kniven, flints, hatchets and muskets, to ex-
jrfiangi for what thej might wish to obtain.
; When the boats had anchored in the harbor,
Lnother boat, manned with a chief and crew of
fiative islanders, came off, who apr-eared erj
'riendlv and anxious to trade with the strangers,
;Uting that thej had hogs and potatoes in abun
dance. Mr. Whalon, first officer of the whale
bip, who had charge of the ship's boats, then
raaferred his trade into the natives boat, got
j and went ahoTe with them, leaving his own
motored off in the harbor. .
Upon landing and proceeding up the valley,
the natives commenced chasing pigs, caught one
and tied it- While they were chasing the ani
mals through the valley, the chief and Mr. Wha
lon tood together, and the natives were ehout
. ing, evidently for the purpose of calling
the people, for they came rushing from all
parts of the valley, armed with hatchets and
' knives, which at least looked suspicious. Mr.
W. fearing that they meant no good, proposed
t) the chief to return to the boat ; upon which
iLe latter stepped up to him', suddenly seized his
hat and placed it upon his own head. This he
thinks was a.well-known signal among them, for
he was instantly seized by a score of natives,
thrown down and stripped caked, his hands and
feet bound with ropes, which the chief had in
hu hands, but which he supposed were intended
to tie the pigs.
The natives then proceeded. . to tear up his
clothes into small pieces, and cut the buttons off,
making a distribution among the crowd. After
thia they paid their attentions to their prisoner
by pinching him severely, bending his fingers
sod thumbs over the back of his hands, wrench
iig his nose and torturing him in every imagina
Ih way. They would strike at Ins head and
limbs with their hatchets, always mining him
t v a hair's breadth. For about three hours they
continued to amuse themselves and torment him
ia this manner. He supposes thi3 was the custom
preparatory to being killed, as it doubtless is.
iowt of the natives tried to entice the ship's two
boats to come to the ehorei and Mr. W'b. boat
steorer was on the point of landing to find him,
rhen tlny were warned off by a young Marque
aui girl, belonging to the family of the Hawaii
an missionary Kekela. This girl shouted pull
away," it being all she could Fay in English,
leckoning at the same time to leave the shore.
The loats returned to the ship without their offi
C t. Had they gone on shore, it is not unlikely
tiiit there would have been a coinbat, and all
1en massacred, as they were not prepared for
i.ny attack. This same girl had tried to warn
Xr. W. not to go inland with the chief, but he
riiJ not understand her, and when he was seized
!e used her utmost endeavors for him among the
natives, weeping all the while that they were
A Hawaiian missionary, whose name he did
not learn, having heard of the trouble, now ap-'
proached him, but was unable to converse with
hioi. S)on after a German carpenter arrived,
and being unable to release him, told him he
would remain by and do what be could to
save him. At night the natives piacea meir
prisonsr in the house of a chiefess who had tried
unceasingly to secure his release from the chief,
and no doubt her efforts alone saved him from
death during the day. The German remained
by him through the night, which to the prisoner
vm a long and dreary one, anticipating as he
did every moment that the natives would break
into the house, ana carry out their design of
murdering him. He afterwards learned, that
aceordinrr to the native customs, the house of a
chief L sacred, and no native can enter it with
out permission, under pril of death. Morning
dawned, and the natives began to reassemble and
bme noisy for their victim. All his hopes
: of relief had now fled, and he began to look for
j death as certain, as the chiefesa would soon be
called on to release him. About thin time, which
1 as early in the morning, the German heard the
: natives speaking of the arrival of the Hawaii
r an missionaries, Mr. Kekela and wife, in the
neighborhood. Upon hearing this, the German
diatched the other Hawaiian for him, and the
natives finding that Kekela had been sent
for, hastily untied the hands and feet of their
Kekela and his wife are Hawaiian mission
aries, gent OUf from tne Sandwich Islands, and
upported by the Hawaiians. They live in a
neighboring valley, but at the time of the
capture of Mr. Whalon, were on a visit to
; another island. Kekela soon arrived with the
chief under whose protection he lives, and in
: tantly commenced remonstrating with the
natives for their inhuman treatment, and be
- sought them to release" him. They demanded
a ransom a3 the only terms for his release.
After a council among themselves they decided
release him for a ichaleboat and six oars,
f npon which Kekela told them to take his
r-ut. At this oSr. huwwer. Kekela's chief
demurred, as this would deprive their settlement
of their only boat. The discussion now waxed
warm between the two chiefs, during which
Kekela declared that he was ready to give up
anything and everything he possessed, if he could
but save the foreigner's life an instance of
di.-interefeted philanthropy, which the annals of
missions can not equal. After some further
parley, it was agreed to give a musket and
some other trade in exchange lor Mr. Whalon,
which was immediately done, and he was led
beyond the boundary which separated the do
main of the two chiefs, and across which to
recapture a person would lead to open warfare
between the two tribes. Mr. W. hesitated when
they wished to lead him farther inland, as lie did
not know what the new chief intended to do
with him'; but upon being assured by Kekela
that he was to go to his own house, where he
would take care of him, he gladly went.
Upon arriving there, Mr. Whalon was aston
ished to find a pleasant airy cottage, furnished
in a neat and tasty manner, much alter the
style of a New England farm house, surrounded
by a garden where flowers, trees and vegetables
greV abundantly .
The boats had returned to the ship on the
previous afternoon, when warned off by the
Marquesan girl. Thursday and Friday, Mr.
Whalou remained with Mr. Kekela and wife,
during which time he was a witness of thd
daily. routine of a Hawffiiun missionary's house.
Morning and evening a bell was rung for
prayers, which were attended by about fifteen
natives, male and female, who seemed quite
orderly and attentive to the exercises. Meals
were served at a table after the European style,
and consisted of meats, sweet potatoes, and
bread fruit. While here natives belonging in
the same settlement brought fresh bread fruit
daily for the foreigner. Mr. Kekela a.ured
Mr. W. that- had the natives demanded all he
had, he should have given it to release him. In
conversation with Kekela regarding the progress
which Christianity was making among the
people, Kekela states it as his opinion that his
efforts among the adults were almost useless,
but that among the youth he had promise of
great success, having now forty regular atten
dants on divine worship on the Sabbath. Mr.
Whalon bears testimony to the upright Christian
character of Kekela and wife, and of the great
influence which they have over the natives in
their settlement. Kekela is a most industrioue
man, thus setting a worthy example to the
islanders. He has more land under cultivation
than any other one man, and more sweet pota
toes than the whole of the rest of the settlement
together. They have one Marquesan girl (before
mentioned) that lives with them, who fhows
unmistakable evidence of improvement, being
very domestic in her habits and an apt scholar.
Saturday morning, Jan. 16, the ship appeared
off the isdand, and Kekela and the chief made
preparations to take Mr. Whalon off to her, in
their own boat first sending a native ahead to
see that nobody was in ambush for the purpose
of shooting any of the party. Finding the coast
clear, they embarked and soon reached the vessel,
where they were welcomed on board by Capt.
Mr. Whalon's emotions on reaching the ship
can better be imagined than described. He had
been rescued from the Bavnges and returned to
rh the efforts of a native Hawai
ian a stranger, who had ten prompted to act
in his behalf by tho teachings of the Christian
religion, of which he gave the most exemplary
evidence. - During 23 years voyaging around
the world, he says he has never passed through
a more eventful cruise than this one, nor
any where met with strangers who have won
his gratitude and affection as these humble Ha
waiian Missionaries, living on the Island of
Ilivaoa, to whose efforts alone, he owes his life.
Nothing that he could give to them could cancel
the debt he owes, and he says that whenever
Kekela stands in need, let him know and he
shall share with him. Of course, both Capt.
Stranburg and Mr. Whalon rewarded Kekela
and his chief with such gifts as they had at their
disposal, and they returned to the shore.
Speaking of Mrs. Kekela, Mr. Whalon said
he was surprised to find a native Polynesian, so
courteous, kind and polite, and so well educated.
Her manner and conduct at all times were lady
like. It is the best commentary of the trans
forming power of religion. Kekela and his wife
could speak broken English, just enough to be
understood, and supplied all his wants.
After Mr. Whalon had been released, and
escaped to Kekela's house, he inquired the cause
of his seizure by the natives, and learned that it.
was done out of revenge for the kidnapping of
Marquesans by the Peruvians, who had stolen a
cargo of men and women from this and the
neighboring islands. Some of these kidnapped
natives had been returned by the Peruvian Gov
ernment, but many had died on the passage to
or from Peru, while others had had various dis
eases including the small-pox, which they brought
back to the group, and was spreading over the
islands. The Marquesans were so incensed with
these outrages of the Peruvians, that they took
vengeance on any foreigners that might fall into
their power, regardless who they were. Had
not Kekela been away, they would probably not
have maltreated Mr. W. in the manner they did.
Kekela does not live with the tribe, into whose
hands he fell, and has but little influence with
them. They are frequently at war with the
other tribes on the island. Still he is known
all over the island, and the day may come when
through his teaching, wars there may be ended,
and the tribes dwell together in peace, as they
do on our ninre favored Hawaiian group.
