This Is th most original work, without question, in re
Ugiou literature ever produced in our country as unique
aod quaint la Its way as Banyan's famous allegory:
among tne world or books, it is tne only one mat instructs
lo Christianity and bam an nature oa the principle of object
teaching. People who would seldom open tbe Bible itself are
attracted to this work, for it is a big picture-book in religion.
rsrv picture, too. enforces a principle. No book extant so
instantly represents th Go. pel no. Dot even tbe Bible itself
-as this, by its appeals through the eye.
Over one hundred and thirty topic are introduced and en
larged upon with illustrative pictures, such as Repentance,
faith, Hope. Lore, Justice, Time brings p Troth, The Mem

of UM last century, lo the administration of George Wash

graving. More than a half a century ago he began, in a
mail way, a aa author. A book about that time was pro-
jeciea ay mm, aoaer to title or tne "Lookiog-GIsss." con

pubUcatiooa were large emblematic religious enrravinirs. one
of which, la the hands of oar missionaries fifty years agojwas
th main instrumentality in the conversion of the Uueeo of
the Sandwich islands.
The Picture iu the " Bible Looking-Glass" are all from his
drawings, and many of them engraved by him. They show
great Ingenuity ia design. They are not meant to be artistic,
bat to esavey at a glance som principle of truth vital to
human welfare. The costume are those of the American
people when Mr. Barber was young sixty years ago. They
ar now otd-Caskiooed. The Chnstiao religion itself, we be
lieve, ia not considered new-tsshioned.
The work has great popularity, over juu.ooo copies having
already passed from the band of Canvassing Agents into
tbos of tbe people, where, lying opon tbe tables of thousands
of families, it ha acted a a continual teacher of the Gospel.
Tb Bible Looking-Glass" being in quarto form, is a com
panion in hp and character to the Family Bible, which it
reflects and explains. While the work is thoroughly evangel
leal and orthodox, no peculiar denominational doctrines are
advocated; only th great cardinal principles of Christianity,
la which good people everywhere believe.

Extract from Speech of His Excellency Governor
Pope Hennessy, C. M. G. at the Tung Wa
Hospital, 8tb February, 1878.
Many years ago, the attention of the Govern
ment was directed to a scandal, which also at
tracted the notice of my gallant friend, Admiral
Hillyar, tbe evils of the coolie trade, and one of
my predecessors called the attention of tbe Secre
tary of State to tbe facts that the communications
from the Tung Wa Hospital were those which
gave him the first intimation of the evils prepetrat
ed in that trade. While the Government of that
day had to thank tbe Committee of the Tung Wa
Hospital, it is my duty now publicly to do the
same. It is not many weeks since you drew the
attention of the Government to that which un
doubtedly was a grave abuse. You brought to
my notice the fact that it was the practice to
issue tickets to Chinese Emigrants in this Colony
for a certain sum of money ; tbe tickets purport
ed that tbe Bum was paid in full, whereas, as
you pointed out, in reality but a very small sum
was paid, and the emigrant was expected to bind
himself for so long a period as two years, to work
off bis passage, in the sugar plantations of the
Sandwich Islands. That was an infraction of
our law. It was you who drew our attention to
it, and it is my public duty to thank you, as I
now do, for the valuable information you thus
conveyed to tbe Government."
Extract from Letter dated Honolulu, July (1878),
from Her Majesty's Consul-General, James II.
Wodebouae, to Governor Pope Hennessy,
C. M. G.
With reference to the enforcement of service
alluded to by Yonr Excellency, tbe following ap
pears to be a true statement of the course pursued
on tbe arrival of a vessel with Chinese immi
Tbe agent of tbe Hawaiian Government before
whom above contracts for service under the Mas
ter and Servant's Law can be made, goes on board
with an interpreter ; tbe immigrants who have
bad their passage money advanced to them by
Chinese firms in Honolulu, sign a contract for
service with some employer of labour for two
years, receiving in advance the sum of Billy
dollars, of which forty-five is for their passage.
No contract is sanctioned by the Hawaiian Agent
unless agreed to by the immigrant ; but the lat
ter understands, as it appears from the statement
made before Captain Thompsett, that on his
arrival at Honolulu he will be required to enter
into an agreement to serve for a sufficient length
of time to enable him to pay off his debts.
If tbe immigrant were allowed to land before
paying his passage, the charterer, or person who
advanced the money for it, would be urjable to re
cover tbe amount, as the laws or these Islands do
not allow of arrest for debt.
No contract is valid unless made before an
agent of the Hawaiian' Government in this
It was formerly the practice of the Hawaiian
Government to guarantee the passages of immi
grants, but it was found that the men took ad
vantage of this and refused to refund the money.
It was then decided to eend a well-known and
respectable Chinese merchant from this city to
engage men, who are much wanted for the de
velopment of the resources ot these Islands.'
Extract from letter dated 30th August. 1878 from
His Excellency Governor Pope Hennessy,
C. M. G., to Her Msjesty's Consul-General at
tbe Sandwich Islands, Mr. James II. W ode
house. The authenticated facts stated in the latter
part of your letter show that the emigration in
question is, in reality, contract emigration, and
under Rule 4 of the Emigration Regulations of
Hongkong, such Emigration is not permitted
except to British Colonies.'
Extract from Despatsh dated 1st November, 1878,
from the Right Honorable Sir Michael Hicks
Beach, Bart., to Governor Pope Hennessy,
C. M. G.
I fully appreciate your anxiety to detect and
prevent any abuses, and 1 think that there were
good grounds for refusing to sanction tbe con
tinuance ot Chinese Emigration to Honolulu,
when the Chairman of the Tung-wa Hospital
directed your attention to the proceedure which
was being followed in tbe Islands after the arri
val of tbe Emigrants.
" I shall readily support and assist you in
your efforts io this direction."
