An Infamous Trafllc.
The San Salvador ship Dolores Ugarte, is lying
outside oar harbor, having arrived on Wednesday
last, from Macao, with five hundred and eigbty
fonr coolies on board, bound for Callao. We
learn that the Captain requests permission to land
his cargo in squads of fifty, for the purpose of re
cuperating them. It seems that the last 6hip
which stopped here, the Henry 1th, lost two
hundred and Beventy of her chattels between this
port and Callao, for this reason this Captain de
sires to air his cargo.
This ship, like the former, haa all the parapher
nalia of the old time slaver ; grated hatch ways,
barricades aft, eentries, &c., &c. A few of the
unfortunates are allowed on deck at a time, for
exercise, and in order to accelerate their move
ments men with cat-o-nine-tails stand at conven
ient distances to keep them moving lively. Im
agine, reader, five hundred human beings cribbed,
cabined and confined between-decks in such weather
as we have had the past 'week. The poor
wretches crowd to the main hatch gratings for air ;
the strong succeed, the weak must stand back
and die. Imagine, if you can, the charnel house
tho Henry 7th mu6t have become with six or eight
men dying daily. Of course her cargo did not
pay. Shall we help the owners of this cargo to
line their pockets? The first promptings of a
humane heart would be to let this cargo land,
but is it not better to refuse the right to these
five hundred and seventy and thus prevent this
hellish traffic, by making it unprofitable ? Better
thus than let thousands be sacrificed in time to
come. The question is, shall tbe Hawaiian Islands
become the half-way house for the South Ameri
NOTES OF TIIE WEEK.
Family Jabs. Having occasion to visit the Court
House last Tuesday morning, our attention was at
tracted by an unusual crowd of epectators gathered
in and about the doors of the Police Court room.
On inquiry, we were informed that it was a case of
malicious injury committed by an irate femme covert
on the property of her liege lord, wherein she had
smashed up sundry articles of crockery and other
domestic utensils, and sloshed around generally in a
very promiscuous manner. Whereupon the " head of
the family" caused madame to be arrested and
ignominiously locked up. On the trial two very
able counsel appeared, one on each side, and in
justice to the counsel for the defendant, we should
say that he was called upon to defend after the case
was in Court, and consequently had but little time
for preparation. As the trial proceeded the hu
band's case was proved to be much the strongest, in
fact his experience was a hard one, he evidently
having married a virago. Counsel for defence had
no chance to clear his client, and so resolved to get
her off as easily as possible. Now commenced the
sparring of counsel interspersed with a deal of dry
humor, which was hugely enjoyed by the audience,
and even the grave Magistrate was compelled more
than once to pucker up his mouth in a vain attempt
to repress a smile. It appeared that Benedict had
suffered, times innumerable, from the violence of his
spouse, who is a native woman. Sticks aod clubs
had played about his head ; shoe brushes had been
hurled at him, in fact every indignity had been per
petrated upon him, when he hit upon the expedient
of installing a foreign lady as house-keeper, think
ing perhaps that his spouse would behave Letter be
fore company. Fatal reasoning, jealousy was the
natural result. " Hell knows no fury like a woman
scorned," and hence the rampage and destruction of '
property for which she was on trial. j
Some of the incidents of the "family jars," as
brou"ht out on cross-examination, were sufficiently
ludicrous. It was testified to that on one occasion
the virago had shied a shoe brush at Benedict for
presenting the house-keeper with a new bonnet
certainly an error of judgment to say the least ; that
the violence of the spouse had been a regular dish
for nearly the whole of their married life, three
years ; that during the first six months of the union,
the husband had delighted in applying to his wife
the endearing terms of " my dear," " my love,"
and had endeavored "to take her into society,"
which may of course be considered the normal con
dition of matrimony. Sad to say, however, the sub
sequent examination proved that the abnormal soon
succeeded to the normal state and epithets more
emphatic than endearing were applied to the fair
defendant It was a matter of doubt m tne minus
of the learned counsel whether this change in the
mise en scene was properly attributable to the shoe
brush, the new bonnet, or the advent of the afore
said house-keeper. But the " most unkindest cut of
all " was the statement of the plaintiff that the
lady's character had not been of " lily whiteness "
before the hymenial knot was tied, a fact which he
learned too late. Defendant's case was certainly a
desperate one ; but her counsel, never dismayed,
brought up his reserves of wit, humor and pathos,
and made a stunning appeal to the Court. The line
of defense being temporary insanity. The eloquent
counsel for the traduced lady in commenting on the
evidence said that in his opinion it was a singular
fict that if the lady was all she had been painted
before her marriage, that plaintiff had not dis
covered it during the balmy hours of courtship.
But as Toots" said, in those halcyon hours of
bliss, " it was of no consequence." The attention
of the Court was called to the fact that in the early
months of marriage the husband had applied the en
dearing terms of "dear" and " love," in "fact,
your Honor, he exhausted the vocabulary of matri
monial endearments of its choicest flowers ; but in
the lapse of six short months a change had come
over the spirit of his dream, and instead of my
dear ' he now addressed his spouse with the com
mon, cold, formal appellation of 'Marier,' and this
of itself your Honor was sufficiently harrowing to a
sensitive mind. The Court is perhaps aware that
the Harries' of this lady were of an unusual
character. In her frenzy she broke everything
within her reach that could be broken, evidence of
uneomnion cerebral excitement The plaintiff, an
intelligent man, having a literary reputation, was
guilty of a grave error when he consulted a lawyer
instead of a physician. Spats are not rare even
in the best regulated families, as the Court knows,
but they are far from being undesirable in the long
run. They are often like the thunder storm in June,
tfcAw r.liar the atmosnhere. and the sun of domestic
felicity bursts forth smiling after the rain and the
beauties of nature bloom afresh." The Court however
could not " see it," was too old to be caught thus.
and cruelly sentenced the fair Aspasia to nna Dau m
the sum of $100 for one year, and keep the peace
towards her lietre lord, which was promptly given iu
consideration of the fact that she was not to go near
her husband during that period. We congratulate
The Reduplication or Names. The New York
City Directory for the year ending May 1st, 1871,
contains 15,000 more names than its immediate pre
decessor. Two hundred of these personal appella
tions have been gained by the Smith family, who
now muster 1,800 strong in Gotham. The Greens
foot np 900, and beat the Joneses who Btopped at
650. JJeatn, matrimony, or emigration bcvujb iu
have seized upon the family Robinson (not the Swiss),
for, contrary to the usual exhibit, they have receded
to 280. For some unknown, but possibly very
excellent, reason, the statistics of the Browns ana
Whites have been omitted. We hope that the worthy
members of those ancient and honorable families will
cherish no malice toward the compiler.
Cbotoh Oil Nuts. A day or two since a party of
young folks taking a stroll oat of town, came opon
s croton oil tree. Curiosity prompted them to taste
the nuts, and finding them sweet, several of the
nartv ata of them, luckilv however but sparingly
Aa it n-as. thev were nrettv sick for a day. Croton
oil ia well known as a violent cathartic, croton
tiglium is the botanical name. The tree is neither
ornamental nor useful, and parents would do well to
eradicate them whenever found growing aDoui me
France ts. Prussia. A Frenchman in New York,
owns a store on Broadway, which he rented to some
Germans for 1,800 per annum. They asked for a
redaction in the rent, and proposed that if the
Prussians whipped the French they would pay $150
less than before, but if the French were victorious,
thev would cav the 81.800. The Frenchman how
ever said that Lf the Prussians won, the rent should
be $300 less, but if the contrary was the result it
should be 1,800 as before. This novel wager was
clinched by a written contract. ,
Home Again By the Wonga lVonga, from
New Zealand, arrived two Hawaiians, who return to
their native land after an absence of thirty years,
most of which time they have spent in New Zealand.
One is a half-caste, his father, as he says, having
been a mulatto, who came to these islands in the same
Bhip with Capt. Alexander Adams. The men say
they left Lahalna in a whaleship, the name of which they can
not remember, but the Captain's name was May new. Desert
ing from the ship at New Zeiiland, they lived alternately
among the Maories and the settlers, and learned to speak Eng
lish extremely well. When they landed here from the steamer,
everything seemed strangely unlike the Honolulu of thirty
vein leo. and it is doubtful it thev can find any of their kindred
alive. Like Enoch Ardeu. they are strangers in their own
Imported Birds. By the last steamer from Aus
tralia, was received a number of cockatoos, love
birds, and other birds peculiar to the antipodes.
Amontr the rest are a pair of emus, or New Holland
cassowaries, allied to tbe ostrich family. They stand
about three and a half feet high, and their means of
defense is said to be. kicking up behind." An
enthusiastic Australian, in describing their kicking ',
powers, asserted that they had been known to knock
a man over with one blow of the foot They are
famed for their speed, outstripping the fastest horse.
Irk New Word. Every now and then some news
paper writer coins a new word, which, after going
the rounds comes into general use and is looked upon
as legitimate. Thus originated "telegrams," com
prehensive for " telegraphic message." And now we
have " paragrams," as a standing newspaper heading
rr, 4t,nu clmrt narao-rarjhs of dipP"H H
sorts," which make such agreeable desultory reading.
Complimentary. A friend haa handed us a copy
r Ttnrlinirton flowat Gazette, the editor of
which makes his acknowledgements to Mr. J. R.
Fayerweather, for copies of Honolulu papers, and
adds They are papers that would do credit to any
country." The Mr. Fayerweather mentioned Is a
brother to the late Abram Fayerweather, who resided
here for many years, and left children and grana
children. J" A Paris paper vauntingly says the present
war is " God's intervention to put a check upon
Protestanism." Is it not as likely the means by
which a "jealous God " intends to punish a church
which is responsible for the impious dogma of infalli
bility, which was publicly proclaimed about the same
time that war was declared. Let the future decide.
All Right Now. While the Jljax was waiting.
long after the hour Bet for her departure, an anxious
nRssensrer inauired the cause of th delay. " Oh
nothing but to get ready some important despatches from the
foreign oBice, notifying France, Prussia, and the rest of Euro)

A Shower. On Thursday, quite a smart shower
fell on the hills back of the town, and reaching to
the suburbs, but did not reach to our parched and dusty
streets. The "hot term" still continues, and day ader day
th wind hnntinnea from the southwest qa rter. Strangers
newly arrived pronounce the weather delightful, while old res
ident sigh for a return of the bracing trade winds, which are
just aettiug in again.

T.nvimv. Anc A. The Paris corrc-podent of tho
Kews writes on Tuesday that tbe enthusiasm has
entirely disappeared in Paris. It Is now evident
that war witu Uermany means a preiongeu airuK
gle against one million armed combatants determ
ined to defend their own country, and If pomib1ft,
give the Emperor such a lesson that hereafter bis
peculiar mode oi making ins reign au era oi pvuw
by attacking his neighbors will be renuereu im
possible. The announcement that tbe fortification, ol Paris
are to be placed in a condition of defence, and the
Emperor's admission that the war will be long,
have singularly dampened the ardor of those who
imagined that within a fortnight a glorious peaco,
which would reestablish the supremacy of tbo
French arms, would be signed In Berlin.
We are still told that the Germans are dreading
the Idea of encountering tbe Milrailleurs and Turcos
but tbe legend has not tbe desired effect.

Belgium was now assured ; me t owers now at war

London. Aug. 8. The Times says the French
are in a critical position. The momentous question
arises whether the Emperor's health leaves him in
possession of his ordinary faculties. The war is
marked by bis usual hesitation, to which is attri
buted tbe random and purposeless strategy and
the puzzling inaction which probably brought ca
lamity to tbe National arms. Tho Emperor is now
bound to accept battle instantly. He has entire
lack of the power or controlling lorces and restor
ing spirits to a defeated army, and this while tbe
enemy Is concentrating at tne neart or Loraine.
Circumstances will soon exact the reappearance or
England in the character of mediator.
London, Aug. 10. Our special Paris correspond
ent writes : " From what I hear of tbe feeling among
tbe people and tbe army. I tbink It more than pos
sible Napoleon will never re-enter Paris. Tbe army
is sick of bis amateur Generalship. Ponnibly he
bas already been forced to resign. His factotum,
Lebceuf, will also retire. BazMne will command.
ThH Btatement of a Becret alliance between Franco
and Italy, and the expected reinforcement of 100,
000 Italian troops, is certainly false. No matter
what tbo King of Italy may have promised, tbo
troops would not trarch to France."
A special cable despatch from London, says tho
letters from Metz speak most undisguisedly of tbe
calamitous and fatal incapacity of tbe Emperor.
Marshal Labccuf and all tbe military leaders, com
prising the Imperial staff have utterly lost tbe con
fidence of tbe army, and a change in command was
an absolute necessity to prevent mutiny.
The Prussian victory made a great impression
here. Tbe Daily Kews to-morrow remarks :
"Henceforth we may look for an exebango of
bard blows ; the French Emperor cannot atford
under tbe circumstances, to consult merely military
interests in tbe movements be orders ; tbe moral
effect of this defeat at Weissenburg must be wiped
out at whatever price it may be necessary to pay.
It is understood that Marshal McMabon was just
returning from a long and serious conference with
tbe Emperor, when this unexpected blow was
struck, having carried away with bim a plan of
campaign. It is uncertain whether this untoward
event will interfere with that plan or not All that
is known of tbe French army bids us look for a se
rious attempt to avenge the defeat"
London, Aug. 8 Ships still enter the Elbe and
Weiser, notwithstanding the blockade. A French
ram is cruising off Dover.
Pleasure traveling continues in Switzerland, de
spite the excitement caused by the war.
Bets are offered here that the Prussian army will

Telegrams from Paris.
