In the same paper in which we find the above, is
au account of a schooner fallen in with at sea recently,
near the coast of Australia, and towed itito port by
II. 15. M- ship Basilisk. She was waterlogged and
completely " gutted " of everything. No clue to the
name orplace where she belonged could be discovered.
On board were found fourteen South Sea Islanders, in
various stages of starvation, and also three dead
bodies. The white crew had evidently abandoned
the vessel and their wretched captives, to go to the
bottom. There was neither food or water on board.
When the schooner was brought into port, the mag

Koukou was cut. with a Ion- msh behind her
ear
right ear, on the hack part. I saw no one at the
house that night after Kuheleaumoku left ; he left
id. .lie. I crawde-1 out of the house by m3'self towards
the house of Kekolohe ; Kekolohe found me and took
me to his house ; I was crawling on the road ; I told
Kekolohe and others that Kuheleaumoku had as
saulted us and set fire to the house.

THE MVItl.tRKlt PHfcTEXPS TO COXKFSS.
I After the girl's testimony had been taken, ou the
i same evening Kuheleaumoku the prisoner stated to
the Pistrict Justice of Wailuku, Henry W. Daniel,
: 11-ip, acting as coroner, that he wished to make au
open and full confession of the crime. He was
', warned by that official that whatever he said would
be used tis evidence against him on the trial, but he
presi.-te 1 in his wish to confess all that related to the
murder. His statement was accor lingly taken down
at length. Iu it he declares that one Kahoaa com
mitted the murders and the assault on the girl, and
that he (Kuheleaumoku) set fire to the house at
Kiihoaa's request. The motive for the murder by
Kahoaa he sai l was because the girl Kaiiieelehiwa
would not cohabit vvith him.
ST.VTKMKN T OF Sl'RUKO.V HERAT.
The testimony of l)r. Beratz is lengthy and de
scribes in a professional manner the appearance of
the bo-lies of the old people, Kanalu and Koukou.
Of the former, "nothing was wanting: the head.
wanting : the head,
general appearance'
tried up, and black ;
legs, and arms were there ; the
of that body was mum mi fief I dr
through the (-fleet of the fire. The face was more
or less damaged by the fire, so that it would be im
possible lo distinguish the features : there were no
clothes on the bodv only a necktie or handkerchief .
on the neck, which did not get burned : it was very i
tight around the neck. On the neck of this body,
above the handkerchief was a long cut, 5 inches in
length, mid '2 in depth, on the right side of the neck.
Kelow that straight cut was the only part untouched
by tire, being covered by the handkerchief, which
protected it. The handkerchief when touched fell to
pieces, il being charred. The body was stretched out
straight, but the arms and elbows were drawn up
towards the neck. The other body said to be that of
Koukou consisted of head, arms, chest and abdomen,
the rest the pelvis, legs and feet, were wanting.
There was a cut in the left temporal bone, perforat
ing it, and would let the brains (.ut ; the edges of
the bone on both sides the cut were very smooth, in
dicating it was done with a sharp instrument. There
was also a long hole, 1 inch long, 1 inch wide, and '2
inches deep on the same side, iu the region of the
carotid and jugular vein. The wound ou the neck
of Kanalu was sufficient to kill him instantly. The
worn in Koukou was ceitainly killed by the blow on
the temple."
In regard to the girl, the Poctor said : " I exam
ined the girl Kaiiieelehiwa, about 13 years of age
I found on the back of her neck five large cuts, all
nearly parallel to each other, and of the same exten
sion in length anddtpth from I to . inches long
and IA in depth Lvery one struck the vertebral
bones of the neck. They appeared to have been in
flicted with a sharp, keen cutting instrument. My
opinion is that with the greatest medical care and at
tention the girl may recover from her wounds, but
she certainly will die if brain or wound fever should
set in, through neirleot."
A number of witnesses were examined at the in
quest, the result of which was that Kahoaa, charged
by Kuheleaumoku as being the murderer, was dis
charged, their being proof positive that he was in
another place at the time, and in no way connected
vvith the atlair. Kuheleaumoku, however, was com
mitted fi-r trial on the charge cf murder, at the next
term of the Circuit Court for the island of Maui, to
be holden in Lahaina, on the "J I Tuesday of June,
next.

Kuheleaumoku was brought to Houoiulu on Sat

of about 114 years of age apparently, and so far

It is the general belief that the Savior was cru-
ciried on Friday, but in an article of 2S pages in
I'ihliotheca Sacra, of J.ily. 1 STO Kev J. K. Aldrich
1 proves to his own satisfaction that the cruciQvion
1 occurred on Thursday. His reasons are : First
lie must have ieen crueitieu on ihursilay in oid-r
to the fulfillment of the prediction that he should
be three tliis iiit-l da te niijMs in the heart, of the
earth. Matthew 12:10. Second If he was cruci
fied on Friday, there is a plain discrepancy between
John and the other Evangelists.
It he was crucified on Friday, his body could
have lain in the sepulchre only two nights, and
hardly, if any more tiian two days, as it must have
been about sundown when it was placed there
Kvidentl v. therefore, it must have been on Thurs-
uav mai ue was cruciweu
1 1ut what about the apparent ittscrenancies be-
tkVl.,m .,,, atl(1 tllt. other Evangelists? According
to Matthew. Maik and Luke, our Lord ate the
passovcr with ins ili-ciples on tli. evening of the
fourteenth day of Nisan, which was the first day ot
unleavened bread. Put John describes the last
supper of our Lord with his disciples as before the
passuver. John 13:1. He also declares, 1 8:8,
that the Jews went not into the judgment hall, lest
they should be defiled : but that they might eat the
T.-issoe.-r h'rom this it iconbl ueem th:it thev bn.l
1 not v..t eaten th nassover. And n.rain John ealla
1 the day of crucifixion, the prtparatUm of the piss-
1 on-r. l!hl4. '
; How are w e to reconcile these eniing differ-
enees? If C.'.nst was erusilied on Thursday, then
' ate the passover with his disciples on YVcdnes-
; ll V evening, as tt.e passover was to be killed on
1 t!"' f""' teenth of Nisan. Wednesday must have
been the lourteenth. As the Savior came to fulfill
ttie would eat the passover on the day
; S'cified by the law. Five astronomers have cal-
dilated the passover full moon in the year of the
; crueili.vion, and they all agree that it fell on
Wednesday.
- aw vuiw iv. vv o o.iv llic I ' i
,' ? ut ibi' "' ot always appear the first j
I ,1:,v ' i,ml w1''"" ,l dlJ not appear, the Jews would ,

! aW.KT froI .Jvriter that there was a con-
t.rv t ii nm.iiinr tii .liiu'Q nhonr t hi nucenrup tiin
I tention among the Jews about the passover, the
i year of the crucifixion. Hence it is probable that I
i the Savior and his disciples observed the passover
; on the day specified by the law; and that the Jews, !
not having discovered the new moon on the first '
day. observed it one day lately. Matthew, Mark
and Luke, speak of the passover according to the
true
time of the moon, while John speaks of it
ding to the reckoning of the Jews; or rather, !
accon
aceorditur to the decree of the Sanhedrim
Hut there are objections to this view of the sub
ject ; for John speaks of the day of the crucifixion
us li.-inir the nrennrnfion for the Sahhath ? 10:31.
how then could it be Thursday ? He also speaks succeeded by those attendant on a scanty supply
of it as hems the preparation of the passover ; of food and shelter, have been happily dissipated.

' V lew evenings since I called at a well-known
place of business where a great many persons ,
resort during the early part of the evening, not
oulv to leave their orders, but also to gossip upon
the events ot the nay wuu me jovial individual
who conducts the establishment. Several others.
with in v. so If. were discussing the subject of news
papeis. and the manner iu which they were con
ducted in this city as one of the party was l eading
the paper oi that day's issue. Alter he had got
through vvith it. he gratuitously gave as his opinion,
that the newspapers here, for all that was iu tueui,
were not vvoitli reading. One ot the others Hi
ipiired how lt was that he made a practice of
borrowing them so regularly if he had such a poor
opinion ot their merits. ills answer was that he
didn't mind reading them as Ion as it didn't cost
him anything. 1 hardly credited that there was so
inu-.'li meanness in any one's composition, especially-
a man who was in steady employment and
earning good wages, with no one lo support
but hiuiseif, and also was more able to pay lor his
leading than those he borrowed lrom. 1 here are
plenty ot others in this tominiiuity, euually as ;
mean, however, aiuiougn uiey are peruaps not so
devoid of modesty as the individual alluded to :
and they not only impose upon people who are
subscribe; s but iijure tbe publishers of a newspa
per also, by their meanness in more than one
lespeet. My candid opinion is, that any one- who
is foo mean to pay for their reading ought not to
be encouraged by tho.-e w ho do pay for it.
A veiy interesting accident occurred tbe other
day a a" young lady, of rather elegant appearance,
accompanied by an elderly escort of the opposite
sex. was passing a private residence in town,
where shtuhtiery at-.d trees overhang the sidewalk
quite extensively. The lady was ou the outer edge
of the sidewalk, and just as she was passing
beneath the tites. a mischievous gust of wind
cau-ed one of the branches to bend sufficiently low
to become entangled with the beautiful golden
i; esse- which hung in rich profusion around her
shoulders. Had the gentleman been younger. I
should have been inclined to judge Li
rather b.usbly and harbor a suspicion that he was ;
in some way to blame tor that naughty limb play
ing such a trick. 1 could not beip envying nun
the familiarity which circumstances had favored
him with, but I don't think he enjoyed it in broud
daylight. Whether he was realiy bashful or
green." at such a delicate piece of business, or
whether it was because his actions were exposed
to the vulgar gaze ot myself and several others
equally inquisitive, I cannot say. but I thought he
occupied a much longer time in extricating those
fair curls, than was necessary, although it may
have been owing to nervousness. Hut to be cbari-

Vanderbilt , if he buys it, will plug up the hole
and leave the tunnel as it is. Hence their terrors.
The first of November, was a memorable day in
the annals of the ISritish army. The system of ap
pointment and promotion by rurcha-e expired on
that day, and a system of appointment by the
test of capacity, and of promotion according to
degrees nt' merit, takes its place. To many
worthy veterans the change will nr pear as revo
lutionary as if, by the decree of Soine English
Gambetta, all the nn-commissioned officers had
been raised to the command of regiments, or the
choice of cdoiicls had been fubmitttd to the
universal suffrage of the rank and file.
If long hair be the glory of woman, then
there is a glorious young lady in Iloston. She
wa persuaded tlie other day to give a private ex

black hair. Her bight is five feet three inches,
and when she is standing erect her hair falls to
her feet, and trails a quarter of a yard on the
floor, lt is seventy-five inches in length. Here,
indeed, is a favored young person. No need has
she of chignons, nor of tricophc-rous compounds ;
and Eve herseif, the primal and perfect woman
nobly planned, had probably no greater wealth
of tangled charms.

Judge Smith, of Fauquier county, Va., presid
ing in Loudon, has divided that a party giving a
note hearing interest at ten jht cent, lor a cci
lied time (alter date.) if the note is not aid at
the expiration of the time specified, the holder id
the note cannot demand after that date more than
six jht cent, as ten per cent, was a subject of
Contract, and the contract expired at the expira
tion of the time htated on the face of the note.
Parties should be eaieful in taking notes after
stating the amount agreed upon, if it ho more
than six K-r cent, to add on the lace of the rote

Sunn of the Lnglish newr.apers do not hesitate

leelnig of dislike toward tbe Prince which they
affirm was rapidly growing in the minds of the
Lnglish public. We can riot think this state
ment possible. To suppose that an attempt had i
been made to represent the severity of the disease !
under which the Prince is siiffi ring would ini ly
a depravity on he part oi tiie g.ieen oi wh.eh,
whatever may be her failings her previous irre- !
proachiible bearing would prove her incapable.
Such a coiir-e would also cast lasting disgrace on
the Prince's medical attendants, who are men of
honor; audit would likewise implicate a large
circle T persons who pride themselves on their
unsullied reputation. The Koal Family's move
ments and actions are closely watched, and the
discovery of such a trick would hi ing down upon
them the di-like of even that portion of the Eng
lish nation who have hitherto been most loyal.
The Captain-f ieneral of Cuba hns taken the op- ;
portunity of showing his contempt for the re-,
monstrances addressed to him. in favor of con
ducting warfare according to the dictates of civil

in its terms than any that has preceded it. Val
lnaseda tip jK-ars to have resolved, that the bar
barous practices of his military subordinates
should be no longer .'onsid. -red irregular, from the ,
lack of official sanction. He accordingly declares
that ( very in-urgent captured after January lo
shall be shot, and that every one surrendering
shall be condemned to perpetual imprisonment.
Negro no n arc to be treatetl in th same manner

what a tj-pical modern Spaniard thinks to be the
proj-er way to stamp out a revolt.
A New York despatch says : Mr. Comer, .
Colonel f isk's private secretary, is the adminis

Grand Central Hotel, and demanded the jc-rsonal
property taken from the Colonel's person after '
the shooting. This property includes Fisk's iui- '

his tiianiond ring, and 1,500 in bank notes, i
