NOTES OF THE WEEK.
Hawaiian Legend. For an interesting legend of
olden Hawaiian times, beautifully rendered in verse
bf our esteemed correspondent 44 La Pax," see fourth
Quick Dispatch. The bark Comet, of the Regu
lar Dispatch Line, which arrived on Wednesday
noon, has been discharged and re-loaded, and Bails
to-day on her return to San Francisco.
Electro-Silyer Plating Fluid. We have seen
! some old and tarnished silverware that was made
to look just as good as new by the use of this com
pound, for sale by Crowell & Co., Fort 6treet.
Skating Rixk. The Rink at Bnffam's Hall will
be opened to-night, under the patronage of Her
Majesty Queen Emma, with a Grand March, the
Lancers, Quadrilles, etc., all on skates. We antici
pate a full attendance. See notice.
Caustoga Tribune. This is the title of a neat
little weekly, the first number of which was pub
lished in Napa County, California, June 15th, by
Thomas McGeorge, who was formerly connected with
the Daily Herald of this city.
Reisterhed. Last Tuesday, the bodies of James
Muer and John Andrews, two of the seamen of the
Saginaw, who were drowned at Kauai last year,
and buried at Hanalei, were brought up in a
schooner, and reinterred in the Nuuanu valley
A Treat in Prospect. The Rev. Dr. A. L. Stone,
now on a visit to Hawaii, has promised on his re
turn to lecture before the Young Men's Christian
Association. The rubject will be 'Symptoms of
Character." and we anticipate a rare intellectual
treat. See advertisement.
Let Off. A sailor belonging to the brig Fran
cisco, which came into port in distress on Monday
last, was arrested and locked up for drunkenness
on Thursday night. As the nian?s voyage is a
broken one, and he promised faithfully not to of
fend again, he was let otf by the Magistrate wilb a
Good foii Napoleo.v. Napoleo n Nihi. the well
known Csh dealer, formed a resolution, one year
ago, to spend no more money for strong drink. He
procured a tin box. and every time he felt, an in
clination to smile, he dropped the money in the box
instead of spending it for grog. When the year was
up, and tbe box opened, it was found to contain
Oahc College. We beg to call attention to the
notice of the Education Committee of this institu
tion, which will be found in our advertising col
umns. The next term "commences 011 the ith of
September'next. Under the arrangements as spec
ilied, parents and guardians may be assured that at
the College may be found all the facilities for im
parting a thorough English educatiou.
A Law unto Himself. A very singular bill has
been presented in the Senate at Harrisburg, Penn
sylvania. It proposes to grant permission to persons
to record before a magistrate a pledge to abstain
from drinking intoxicating liquors, and punishing a
breach of the pledge so recorded by imprisonment.
This might perhaps cure those unfortunates who de
clare that they cannot resist temptation.
The American Peace Society have in contem
plation to celebrate at an early day, the ratification
of the Treaty between the United States and Great
Britain, by a grand Jubilee meeting in the Boston
Music HalL It is proposed to have some of the most
distinguished statesmen and others to give utterance
to the general feeling of gratification experienced at
the prospect of a permanent peace between the two
great Anglo-Saxon nations of the earth.
Sand from the Old World. The North German
ship Terpsichore has landed some 500 tons of sand
ballast, previous to her departure for the guano
islands. This sand comes from the banks of tbe
river Elbe, about thirty miles above the city of
Hamburg, and is excellent material for building
purposes, for wbicb it has been secured by tbe gov
ernment. Thus tbe sands of old Europe are by the
vicissitudes of commerce .made tributary to build
ing np ot Young Hawaii.
A Supposed Cure for Leprosy. A friend sends
us a slip cut from an English paper, headed "A
cure for Leprosy." which is said to have been dis
covered and practiced in India. It consists in the
application of carbolic acid and oil alternated with
plentiiul washing with soap and water. This treat
ment is by no means new, but bas been extensively
practiced by our physicians in these Islands. The
application of carbolic acid is found extremely use
ful in the treatment of Bores and eruptions, re
moviug diseased skin, etc., but in a' cose of real
leprosy, it only goes skin deep.
Waujoator Pear. Tbis fine table fruit, (the bo
tanical name is Persea gratissima) which is be
coming somewhat plentiful here and atIlilo,isnow
in season. Eaten at breakfast with a little pepper
and salt, or butter, they are delicious, and by many
I jpreferred to eggs, mis tree was ursi nuruuuccu
T; ti, iciomk f.v h ninnepi. Don Francisco de
Paula Marin, and planted in Pauoa valley. Sub
sequently another variety distinguished from the
first by its brown skin, and said to be superior, was
brought here from Peru by an officer of the Ameri
can navy. It is known in South America as tbe
Avocado, or Palla.
Two Barrels and One Demijohn. At length it
is announced in ;the Gazette, that there is such a
thing as liquor in Lahaina. The Sheriff of Maui
has made a seizure of two barrels and one demi
john of spirituous liquors, about enough to last ihe
moral town of Lahaina. with its present popula
tion, about how long? It was found on the prem
ises of the Hon. Edward Jones, a member of the
last Legislature, and the Sheriff naively remarks
that these liquors are supposed to have been ille
gally distilled in that district Anybody is at lib
erty to make proof to the contrary and claim the
stingo, or otherwise it will be appropriated by the
government We can imagine the grand rush of
" provers to the contrary " that will be made on
the Sheriff's office, when this notice appears.
Supreme Court. The Court, Chief Justice Allen
and Mr. Justice Hartwell on the bonch, is still in
session. The following is a resume of the proceed
ings up to yesterday :
West Maui Sugar Co. vs. Campbell & Tarton. Con
tinued by consent of counsel, until to-day.

judgment for plaintiff in the sum of $1,666.98.

F. II. Harris, Esq., execution of judgment issued to
the Marshal was allowed to be auspended in bis
hands, the defendant having made an assignment.
. For Micronesia. Tbe brigantine Morning Star,
having been detained several days for tbe arrival of
the mail, will sail this afternoon oc her voyage, with
the missionry families previously announced.
Counterfeit. We do not often see counterfeit
money in Honolulu, but the other night a Peruvian
dollar of date 18C6, was taken at the Panorama,
which was lead, and nothing else. Aside from its
feel, and absence of tins, it was an excellent imita
tion. The Calendar. Tuesday, July 25th, St. James,
surnamed the Great, apostle and martyr. He was
originally a fisherman, brother of St John ; he is
the patron saint of Spain, where, after the death of
his Master, he is said to have preached the Gospel.
On his return to Jerusalem he received the crown of
martyrdom, leing beheaded by order of Herod the
Great, a d. 43. He was the first martyr of all tbe
apostles, and is regarded as the patron of pilgrims.
Wednesday 2Cth : St. Anne, mother of the Virgin
Mary, was daughter of Matthew the priest and
Mary his wife ; she married Joachim, and after 20
years was made happy by the birth of a daughter,
who has been called 44 blessed ' by all generations.
Legal Notices. The following appear this week :
In the matter of the estate of Peter Smith, late of
Honolulu, deceased : Application of W. C. Parke,
administrator, for examination of accounts and dis
charge, and final distribution of property. Heariug
set for Wednesday, August 9th, before the Chief
Justice. Application of P. H. Treadway for probate
of the will of Francis A. Oudinot, late of Lahaina,
deceased ; ordered for Saturday, August 12th, before
Hon. A. Fornander, Circuit Judge, at Lahaina.
Application of Sophia II. Pease, that she be ap
pointed administrator on the estate of her husband,
the late Wm. II. Pease, of Honolulu, deceased ; or
dered for Wednesday, the 2Gth inst, befoBethe Chief
In Memoriam. A nent and appropriate marble
tablet, recently erected on lot No. IS, In the new
portion of Nuuanu cemetery, is thus inscribed :
44 Iu memory of
Peter Francis, Quarter-master,
John Andrews, Coxswain,
James Muer, Captain of Hold,
Who were drowned at Kauai, December 19th, 1870,
on the termination of a boat's voyage from Ocean
Island, nobly undertaken to bring relief to their
wrecked shipmates of the U. S. S. Saginaw. The
body of Peter Francis was not recovered from the
sea. The others are interred here."
The remains of Lieutenant John G. Talbot have
been seut to his relatives living in Kentucky. He
was executive officer of the Saginaw in chargo of
the relief boat and was drowned with the others as
Asparagus. This delicious plant is seldom seen
in Honolulu, but there is no reason why it should
not be grown in abundance. We were treated to a
bunch this week, which was grown on the enclosed
ground known as Emma Square. The appearance
of the Square at present, (the dryest season of the
year) with its evergreens and luxurious growth of
trees and shrubs, is the admiration of all observers,
and is a fair illustration of what may be accom
plished by persistent and intelligent industry. The
soil of the Square, as some may be surprised to
learn, is not ove. two feet in thickness, and is un
derlaid by an apparently bottomless strat of black
volcanic saud. By a constant system of working in
of mulch and manure, and liberal wetting down
with water, the place has been made what it is, a
beautiful ornament to that part of the city. And
now Judge Montgomery has demonstrated what an
amateur gardener can do on such a spot, by success
fully raisiug the delicate and rare asparagus. This
is an example for others to follow.
Scraps by our Rhymer. We have a poet among
us at least a rhymer who makes some desperate at
tempts to mount Pegasus. In these long interims
44 between mails." (no allusion to hours of feeding)
the scissors are frequently brought into requisition,
and on breezy days the accumulated clippings some
times take to themselves wings and fly away. Where
at Quirk thus discourseth.
44 When dusty zephyrs round the sanctum.
Are flying 'a it the old boy'd spank'd 'em,
Iho' not like Shakespeare's. eager nipping,"
Yet still they cut away with "clippings."
A lady of Quirk's acquaintance apologized at break
fast for any fault that might be found with the
cookery, as her Chinese Cook had gone off. Quirk
" My Chinese cook has left me,"
The liusy house-wife cried ;
"And I must try to take his place,
Until again supplied."
" If you would strive to lake his place,"

In cooking, praise as he has done,
You'll take the cue Irom him."
Historic Names. Christian Lopez and Louis
Gonsalez were before the Police Court on Wednesday
last, the former for assaulting the latter. Both are
Portuguese, employed on a milk-ranch in the neigh
borhood of the city, and both are of unmistakable
African descent Lopez has a bad record, having
been twice mulcted in the Police Court for furious
and reckless driving of his milk-wagon. Gonsalez,
the darkest complexioned of the two, had a native
woman for a wife, and he wns jealous of the atten
tions of Lopez to the fair Desdeniona. His jealousy
reached the climax when he discovered her handker
chief in the possession of this Iago. But unlike
Othello, instead of going for Dcsdemona, and put
ting out her 44 light," he complained to 44 the boss,"
which caused Iago to get into trouble. The latter
promised the jealous Moor that the first time he got
a chance, he would 44 put a head on bim." This
occurred one night when the iron tongue had told
the hour of one, just as Othello was beginning his
morning task of milking the cows, when Iago
attacked him and literally 4 mashed his jaw."
Othello halloed 4 haul-in," in jaw-broken accents,
and Iago was taken to tbe station-house. The result
of this tale, (which resembles Shakespeare's, inas
much as there is a handkerchief in it) was that
Lopez paid Gonsalez $100, besides paying the doc
tor's bill and for lost time, and was sentenced to be
imprisoned twenty days at hard labor, for the as
Kead this. There is but one infallible preven
tive to the intemperate use of intoxicating drinks,
and that is total abstinence ; for tbe lesson of ex
perience has been, that where their use is general
some do fall, yes, many in the aggregate, and we
have no reason to expect anything different in the
future from what has resulted in tbe past. And as
no one can say iu tbe beginning what the end will
be to himself or any one elsts it follows that cer
tain safety can only be found in Total abstinence.
But as this does not prevail, and as many are suf
fering, and will do so in consequence, we publish
below the following Drunkards cure " from a
foreign paper, which we are credibly informed has
been used with success, in at least one case, here :
The Drunkard's Cure. Some months ago a gen
tleman advertised that be had discovered a sure
specific for the cure of drunkenness. He would
not divulge the secret of what compounds he used,
but lnrnished tbe medicine at so much per bottle.
He did not have so many applicants for cure as was
expected, considering the extent of thedisease. In
act, the more malignant cases did not seem anxious
for relief. They rather appeared to enjoy their
malady. A few. however, placed themselves under
treatment, and some were cured whether by tak
ing the medicine or not taking strong drinks, we
are not prepared to say. One of the cured ones
had laith in tbe medicine, rigidly carried out tbe di
rections of the doctor, and now has not the least
taste for intoxicating drinks ; whereas, one year ago
he was an inebriate, and could not get along with
less than a pint to a quart of whisky per day. He
said that he had, at some tronble and expense, pro
cured tbe recipe for the preparation of the medicine,
wbicb he had published for the benefit of suffering
humanity. It is as follows : Sulphate of iron, five
erains : peppermint water, eleven drachms ; spirits
of nutmeg, one drachm once a day. Tbis prepar
ation and medicine acts as a tonic and a stimulant,
and so partially supplies the place of the accus
tomed liquor, and prevents the absolut physical
and moral prostration that follows a sudden break
ing off from the use of ptimulating drinks. It is to
be taken in quantities equal to an ordinary dram,
and as often as the desire lor a dram returns. Any
druggist can prepare the prescription.
For the East. The mails per City of Adelaide
will close at the Post Office at 4 p. m. to-day.
jZS The Wonga Wonga, it is now conceded
will not be due from San Francisco before the 7tb.
A Shark Story. We beard a story of a shark
this week, that somewhat staggers our credulity. It
runs this wise, as related to us by a policeman : A
native man and woman were out fishing on the reef
at Waikiki, when a shark appeared, and attacking
the man, in successive bites took off his arms and
legs. He then attacked the woman, who was making
for the shore with the limbless trunk of her hus
band, but the shark's teeth getting entangled in tbe
woman's chemise, he gave it up and retired. At
j last accounts, the man (without legs or arms) was
! still living. .
A Raid on a Pork Barrel. Last Wednesday
night, the 44 harness-cask " on board the bark
Atalanta, lying alongside the Esplanade, was by
some person or persons unknown, emptied entirely
of its contents, the same being No. 1 American salt
pork. From the cask along the deck and over the
wharf, a trail of brine showed the course the pork
had traveled, and the trail was lost. But won't
somebody have numerous 44 blow-outs " on luand
pork ! Nice corn-fed American salt pork naturally
constitutes a temptation to almost anybody, when
left 44 lying round loose," and the moral to ship
keepers is lock your harness-casks.
By the arrival at 6 o'clock P. M. last evening of
the steamer City of Adelaide, 21 days from Sydney,
N. U. W.. via Fiji, we have dates from the former
place to July 1st, and from Livuka to the 8th. In
our commercial column will be found memoranda
and report of markets. In general news, we Cud
nothing of importance to note.
The Government of 2ew South Wales had 44 inti
mated ,r that they would sustain Mr. Hall's line of
steamers till the end of the year, and will, iu the
meantime, invite tenders, they having been author
ized to grant 15,000 a year to the service.
From the Fiji Times of the 8th inst, we gather
that the government of King Thakombau was pro
ceeding successfully in its work of organization.
The " Supreme Court for Fiji." had its first session,
lasting one week, and appears to have given satis
faction, being composed of native and foreign
judges and jurors. Three murderers had been tried
and condemned to death. The Lovoni tribe, on
Livuka. who had bet-n in rebellion, had been con
quered, and to the number of 1,000 souls had been
parcelled out among tbe foreigners as servants for
fire years, by way of punishment for their rebellion!
The total value of exports for tbe six months end
ing June 30, 1871, amounted to $215,175 ; imports
ure not stated.
Symptoms of dissatisfaction to Thakombau's rule
have been discovered on several of the islands.
Who Controls tlio Streets?
Mr. Editor: Now that the market for the sale
of tibli, etc.. has been built and placed under prop
er regulation, with ample accommodation, I would
ask, why it is that the streets, especially Marine
street, in tlie neighborhood of the Foundry, are
still allowed to be so obstructed by dealers in all
sorts of commodities? On a Saturday alternoon,
the locality named is impossible for horses and
vehicles, and a pedestrian gets along with difficulty.
Whose business i it to keep the streets in a passa
ble condition ? The Road Supervisor, or the Police ?
Or perhaps the Clerk of the Market is authorized to
compel these itinerant traders to take stalls in the
new market. Who knows? Yours. Enquirer.
The offering for sale of Hawaiian produce on

"Wanted - A Hlioe-makcr
Mr. Editor : The other day my wife descried
the need of re-shoeing her girls, and on such ma
ternal designs intent, she went a-shopping. For be
it known unto you, sir, that the honest and ancient
institution called shoe-maker is unknown, or to use
the new English word, ignored in tbis 44 section of
the country," and the good old custom of 44 getting
measured," and indicating the bent of your taste
and desires, seems to have slipped away. Well,
what do you suppose she brought home? (The very
sight of Buch abominations ought to have knocked
her clean aback out of the shop!) Heels! O
shade of sober Saint Crispin ! Wing-footed Mer
cury ! And all ye immortal gods and graces who,
from Olympian shoe leather, first designed the grace
ful sandal ! What things are these ! Infants as
we were, in the days of now prehistoric conserva
tism, taking our first flights ti fancy and romance
with the hooked-nosed rider of an tereonautic
broom-stick, softly sighing in the kitchen with slip
shod Cinderella, sailing to the moon with Mother
Goose or visiting the profitless cupboard with old
Mother Hubbard, high slippered ancient ladies of
our King Arthur's time, little did we dream that
the wardrobes of our fairy friends and childhood's
diablery would ever be ransacked for the resurrection
of their weird whimsicalities, and be brought, (one,
two, buckle my shoe,) to suffer the familiar handling
which has bred the contemptible mockeries of tbe
modern snob ! Is there then no region safe from
tbe sacrilege of this hateful hankering after novel
What pesky new naughtiness may have been per
petrated by the daughters of Eve in these latter
days to bring this infliction and torture of the still
heeled boot upon them, is post my speculation,
though it is all of a piece with the rest, and there
they go a tip-toe through the world, shams alas !
from bottom to top.
That hideous Afrit, who first gave this vitch-hag's
horn-like heel a local habitation and a name on the
firm ground and the infirm sex of this 19th century,
maliciously christening the ugly thing a fashionable
boot, 'twere better that he (and the devil also one
might think) had never been born, or born, out
lawed, excommunicated, Anathema Maranatlia !
Leper ! Pest ! Pedalic Prig ! Beast of Abomina
ble gender ! Sycoraxian begetter of unmitigated
Ugliness ! Would that this very heel were thy only
Achillean vulnerable point through which I might
poison thy pestiferous veins with a pen full of ink !
Not a bit of it. For, (Solomon says it,) though
you take this thing and bray him with a pestle in a
mortar, you'll find precipitated the surviving Fool,
and Fashion is her name, for whose implacable
sake what won't a woman venture !
So let the coming generations suffer, whose feeble
knees, mis-shapen calves and in-elastic gait, shall
but poorly represent our precious souvenirs of saucy
eteppings, and bewitching revelations ancle high, of
the breezy morning and fluttering garments of
youth! Sic transit gloria! In the meanwhile, I
shall chop off these heels with the wood axe.

Tbe question as to whether the spirits of the
dead can and do revisit the earth, and if so in
what manner they are permitted to communicate
with the living, is one that will never be satis
factorily settled until we shall all pass tbe shadowy
boundary that divides us from that other world,
peopled by those who have gone before. While
we instinctively shrink from the idea of the dis
embodied spirits of our dear friends performing
the antics ascribed to them in any "spiritual"
seance, where a miserable juggler, with a knack
of throwing bis or ber vulgar joints out of place
with an imperceptible movement gravely an
nounces with the unblushing effrontry engendered
of ignorance and bad gin. the presence of some
one or more of the famous dead still, there are
times when events take place that fill us with won
der and awe, and lead us to ascribe to ghostly
(i. e., spiritual) agency the otherwise uoexplaiu
able occurrences. Of such a character was the
following incident tbat took place withiu our own
observation on these islands.
While my wire and I were living at with.
no neighbors near us, we were interrupted one
day while busy at home by the arrival of a
mounted messenger, who dashed up iu hot baste,
and informed us tbat a Mr. T., living some few
mile3 distant, had been injured by the premature
explosion of a blast that he had been tamping.
Hurriedly collecting a few necessary articles, we
had our horses saddled, and sending the messenger
on for the doctor at K , we hastened to where
Mr. T. was lying. We found him with his right
arm terribly shattered, and his face much dis
figured the sight of both eyes beiug destroyed.
From'the time that the accident occurred until we
reached him, he had lain on the f-pot to which he
had managed to drag himself before becoming ex
hausted by pain and loss of blood, and our first
care, after stopping the effusion of blood as well
as we could, was to have him removed to a small
house near at band, where we watched by him
until tne doctor arrived, lie decided ai once tnai
amputation must be performed, and though Mr. T.
was alarmingly weak, still as the weather was hot,
and he seemed to suffer terribly, we administered
chloroform, and removed tbe mangled limb. The
chloroform did not produce the effect desired, the
patient being sensible to the knife, but it some
what deadened the pain, and after the stump was
properly dressed, and the other injuries attended
to, the doctor advised that a little more of the
aesthetic be applied occasionally, to keep down the
pain and consciousness of the dreadful loss of
sight, that depressed the spirits of poor T. more
than the loss of tbe arm.
Towards evening he seemed to be more at ease,
and as my wife and I watched by him, he spoke :
"Are you there. II?7' and when I answered, he
said in tones of anguish, ' II., I must die. I can
not live, crippled and blind ! I cannot live, my
eyes are gone, I am blind. Oh! let me die let
uie die ! " In vain we both tried to comfort and
soothe bim ; the idea of lingering on in darkness,
and a cripple, was too terrible for him to over
come, and he rapidly sank, and before the doctor
could reach him again be died.
Shortly after, we returned to our home, and after
taking a bath, and changing all our clothing, sat
down to tea with a sister who lived with us.
We had been talking over the occurrence of the
day, and during a paune in the conversation, while
each one was thinking sadly of the sudden fate of
poor T.,the strong sweetsmell of cldornform filled
the room. We looked up in surprise, and my wife
remarked tbat the clothes we hud taken off must
be lying somewhere near us. and the sudden light
breeze that we all felt had carried in the odor of
the chloroform that bad been spilled over them.
But our sister assured us that she had given all
tbe clothes to the washerwoman, who had carried
them off to ber house some distance up the valley.
Even as we spoke, the scent was gone, being dis
sipated as quickly as it came, and after wondering
at its sudden appearance for a little while, we left
the table, and during the rest of the evening were
engaged iu our usual household occupations and
After we had retired for the night, and while in
our first deep sleep, we were suddenly startled
broad awake by the sweet penetrating odor of
chloroform, th&t swept by our couch, borne on the
swift wings of a cold breeze, that even as we
shrank from its chilling influence, was gone. Be
fore we could summon resolution shall we say?
to speak to each other, our sister tapped at the
door and inquired if any one was ill. For," she
said. I thought you were using chloroform, the
smell of it is so strong in my room." I en
deavored to convince her that 'twas only her im
agination, but she insisted upon it that if we had
not been using the bottle, which she knew was in
our little medicine-chest, then it must by some
means have been upset or broken, and the vapor
of its subtle contents spread through the house.
Throwing on a dressing robe, I went out Into
the hall to the chest and opened it As I knew
before, the chloroform-bottle was empty and dry,
I having used the last some weeks previous.
My sister still insisted that the odor was almost
overpowering in her room, and I went with her
to satisfy myself. As we entered the room fhe
exclaimed "Why! 'tis all gone I" and there
was no trace of its presence left.
As we stood and talked and wondered, my wife
rushed in with the cry "Again ! in our room, the
chloroform I " and immediately we were chilled
by the cold unearthly breeze that swept by,
accompanied by that same sweet overpowering
scent tbat was gone us quickly as it came. Per
plexity gave place to anxiety, and this to a
vague indefinite fear, and during all that long
night we watched and waited with strained nerves,
for the return of that strange unearthly presence,
for so it seemed, as ever and anon it was wafted
by us on that chilling breeze. And we could not
but believe tbat T.'s poor perturbed ghost wan
dered near us from the spirit world.

complications have arisen between Germany and
England, and several despatches are passing be
tween Bismarck and Granville. The Gover nment
observes an impenetrable alienee on the subject of
the present difficulty, but I am informed that Lis
marck bas addressed a note to the German Repre
sentatives in London, informing them that the
Imperial Government desired to acquire Heligo
land, and empowering bim to make propositions to
the British Government lor the purchase of the
Island. Earl Granville replied in the same man
ner, saying that England will not part with Heli
goland, and that the British Government could
entertain no propositions looking to the cession of
that Island ; upon which Bismarck again addressed
the British Government through Count Bernstoff.
declaring that the acquisition of Heligoland was
necessary for the protection of the German coast,
reciting as an instance the falieitics for coaling,
and immunity from attack, which the French fleet
enjoyed at Heligoland, by which it was enabled to
blockade Hamburg and paralyze the commerce of
the German coast, lie looked upon Heligoland
on account of it close proximity, as German ter
ritory, and its possession by any foreign power ns
a standing menace to Germany. Earl Granville
again replied that England wan only bound t
consider her own interest ; that the wish of the
German power to acquire Heligoland did not con
stitute her right to it, as the Island had never been
under Germau rule.
