Now the experience of all new countries .settled by j tuple pottered of what we call '-Western Civilization" M entirely opjOted to the i lea of the-e people. Tiiey are fwud of quot ing l-iyypt at a warning examplean l tell us that all the recent trouble- of that country have re-ulte J from its National Debt, and from the interference of foreigners in the j;ui-e of creditors. Ii would take too long to show that this hypothesis is an unfound ed one and that the troubles of Kypt are now, as they have been for centuries, the result of mi-government by the descend ants of alien conpueror. Neither is it neces sary, becaiite when put to the te.-t the sol- emu witiacn-s who tell lit that the fate of Fgypt mu-t be our-, if we run the country into debt, can find no ioiut of analogy be tween the condition and circumstances of Fgypt and those of this Kingdom. There i4 none. 'I lie clott-t analogy that can be drawn between this country and any others is witli those colonies of (treat Britain which jxe.- -s indedependeut constitutional governments and which are by the aid of the capital th.-y are continually importing from abroad developing with rapidity the natural resources of the countries in which they are loc ited. The people who live in those cjloni's und'.-rstau 1 well the wisdom of not delaying the progress of their coun tries by the fear of running into debt. The ( 'anadians are building a rail way across the continent from the Atlantic to the Pacific and have spent huge sums 4111 other means of communication and on their harbors. Auttralians nud New Zealanders follow in the.ime line. Kven the little colony of Mauritius lias ventured to borrow the mon ey needed f-r public w rks. The results in all thecountries haveamplyjustilied the policy by which they have been guided. This country is precisely in the iosition of these lands newly settled by f'.ritisli colon ists. New resources are being developed by colonists from abroad issessiug the same civilization and tin same arts and industry as the men who are now developing the long neglected wealth of Canada Australia and New Zealand. Hut, iy the wiseacres, these colonists haVo the prestige of the liritih name to back their bonds and if they did not pay them laiglaud would. There never was a greater fallacy. Colon ial bonds hive hi I to be sol i in Knglaud on their own merits from the earliest days of colonial borrowing. They are iuii after at securities now because the moneyed classes know by experience that the bor row ing colonics make vat protits both di rect and in l.rcet by the iis they make of borrow ed millions. Time was when such bond-, bearing interest as high as eight per cent were negotiated with difticulty and.-old a long way below par. The relation cf the borrowers to the Mother Country was ju-t the same then as it is now and the lenders had simply to look to su h security as the lriover.s could give them. This country tuily desires to borrow for purjNises w hich aie directly or indirect ly reproductive and for ju-t such purposes as the-e other countries newly settled by w iiite men have been borrowing. Its ex perience will be the same as theirs. Its progress will be so greatly ejH-dited by the ju licit- it expenditure of the money it may borrow that t txatiou instead of being iu creattJ will be lightened, ami the whole community will be rendered more pros-Jj-erous. Senator Miller. We dee;i it a fortunate t iieuuirtunce for our small lalt that at this juncture we -liuiiM have a personal vi-it from a gentle man to eminent in the councils of our great neighbor and friend as the Honorable J. Miller, Senator uf the great State of Califor nia in the Congress of the l.'nitcd States. He is a sdute-iuaii who e experience as a public man, who-e noble war record and general probity inspire the highest confi dence among the hading public men at Wa-hington. Uefore the Congress ,,f the I'nitcd States we h ive uov en ling a question of the mo t vital impcrt.iucv to our Hawaiian in t retts. and we do not think that we could present our case to a gentleman of more in-tlueii.-e and prominence in the (S.vat Ite puUlic than the visiting Seuatoi. Vt trut bathe will h ive abuiil.ini opporluuitieK during his shrt stay in thecountry to nike those obtt. vations w hich w ill assist him to form a fully enliirhlt-ned opinion in regard to Hawaiian affairs.

He has warmly recogujeij that Hawaii ha-s Ail tilled her part in her iv cir riH'al relations with her mighty conti nental neighbor, and u we have nothing to ear but are only anxious that the atl'airs of our King loin shall be know 11 and thorough iy know 11, wtt trust that Senator Miller will 1 Lave the most ample opportunity for obser vation and informatiou, feeling a convic tion that in him we will tin. I a ju-t and air-iuinded observer who will present the uJfaLrs of our country with iki feel 1 nil it aud fair-uii u iedxjess. Hawaiian Education. The recent public fcchool examinations prove conclusively to an observing stranger that our public instruction is in the hands of very competent teachers. The system of instruction adopted not only of a most advanced ebaracter, but it is manifest that a Jarg- portion of the teaclers have their hearts in their work ai-d regard the text hooks merely as a certain basis of operation, calling largely upon their own mental re sources and capabilities of observation and analysis for leading the minds of he young into the path of know ledge. The exercises for the young reasoning jowers are excellent, and the juvenile mind is awakened by diiecting its attention to every day topic- and to siinoundiug object. This method of in-tructioti, i- like the teach ings in ancient groves, w hen the philosoph ical mind sought with kindly and sympa thetic approach to awaken the daw ning in ched, and to lead it forward so that the w eak and halting intelligence of youth was happy to accompany the firm march of the mind of inaturer years. It is well when the strict relations of teacner and pupil are somewhat lo-t siht of and their relations become those of kindly senior friends lead ing onward their confiding juniors. Much of this pleasant and confidential kind of re lation seems to exist between our teachers and their pupils. It will ensure an educa tion of a most thorough and valuable char acter, and we fc-l assured that the future of the Hawaiian will, thiough such in struction as is now allorded them, be both creditable to our school system and to t he eountrv. The Opposition. An opposition writer calls upon the King "to do right and that his subjects, native and foreign, will be as one with him. Never was there a time when the King of Hawaii was more popular among his peo ple, native and foreign, thau he is at the present time, and this sort of talk of an op position, about ' the people sorrowing over evil counsels, ' and "let a certain glamor of evil influence be removed,'- ami the King will become a " nonular monarch'' is abso lute balderdash. In view of the present prosperity and the satisfactory condition of the country, we ask who has got a grievance, who has been invaded in his rights, who has been unjust ly taxed and who has been pievented from carrying out any legitimate enterprise? The industry of the country has formed itself into organizations, the I overnment aiding such enterprise in everv nroner wav ; iunu.s provided according to the revenue have been applied ftr legitimate objects and all is lroinir well in Hawaii. 1'lierefore all this how ling of an interested and subsidized op lMsition go- for nothing and is absolutely of non-eft'eei. This opposition discussion.es- i-eciallv airainst .Mr.Uibsoii, is merely llieoiu rant of jealousy and ill-will which was just as .strong before he went into ofllce as it is now that he is iu olliee. Let anyone look back at the files of the opposition press of Honolulu and he will see that all thistrong representation of dissatisfaction with the (iibsou Ministry is precisely the same kind of talk that was uttered when Mr. Gibson was a leading opposition member iu the legislative Assembly. The opposition is mere personal prejudice and it is appreci ated as such. It is without result and can accomplish nothing until it becomes a fair and argumentative discussion of principles and measures, and not a mere expression of prejudice and hate agxiiist an indivi dual. ThelMariposa. The arrival of the steamship Mariposa marks an ejoch in the maritime commerce of this c untry. She is the first steamer built expressly for the trade between these islands and the I'nited States of America that has entered our harbor. Her large size, her splendid outfit and her remarkable speed indicate at once the actual import ance of the trade for which she is a coin pet itor, and the enterprise of those men whose interest iu Hawaiian commerce has led them to make so resolute a venture as the building of the Maritosa and her sister ship. We have had steamer communica tioii of what we may call an accidental kind, with the Pacific Coast of America for many years. But the Mariposa is the pio neer of what we may claim as a domestic line- Well might the (iovernmeut tender to her and to the worthy representative of her owners a true Hawaiian Aloha when she appeared olfour coast. When she ar- lived after the unprecedented passage of five days and twenty-one hour-, strains of music, the acclaim of a thousand voices and the booming of guns were ji'-t the proper an nouncements of an event which signalizes a complete revolution iu our means of com muuication with the Coast. Not often in the history of these islands have we had so important and at the same time so welcome a visitor as the steamship Mariposa. We hail it as an event of the highest import anee to the couutry. With the Mariposa we are glad to wel come back again the genial friend wf Ha waii to whose enterprise and enthusiasm we owe this important addition to our com mercial facilities Col Claus Spreekels, and among other visitors whom the Mariposa has brought fo our sea-girt realm, we may specify another fur a hearty welcome (Jen era! Miller, a Senator of the United States, a man of eminence iu the political world of that great country which is our neighbor, our most interested ally and our most stable friend. Coming -s he does to see for him self what we are ami what possibilities are before us, he w ill bo able to note, not only the progress we have made and the certain ties at which we have arrived, but also the public spirit with which everything that tend to our advancement is applauded by the Havijijti people.

We make the following extracts from a dispatch in relation to the movements of lini-ter Curtis Iaukea. v" At Alexandro the ojVi. ialt were very deferential in their attention to Colonel Iaukea and Secretary I'oor. At all the sta tions along the line they were met by olli cials who were profuse in their courtesies and attentions. Arrived at Warsaw, they were waited upon by the Aide-de-camp of the Governor fieneral who had already re served places lor them 111 the conneci-ng traiu and who showed them all the otlieial attention that is only accorded to Ministers wi ttt 1, -v " Mr. de (tiers, the Itlisjuu Foreign Minister, said in conversation with Colonel Iaukea that a great many excellent reports concerning the little 1' i.-iiic Kingdom had been brought to Russia by their naval of ficers who were enthusiastic in their praise of the Hawaiian King and his people, " Uy order of Mini-ter de ( Jiers the Ha waiian Knvoy was placed by the Arch (Jrand Ma-ter of Ceremonies in one of the most honorable positions 011 the occasion of the coronation. " IN skkvia. Minister Iaukea and Secretary Poor have been received with the most distinguished consideration in Bjlgrade "the city of pal aces, " In accordance with the etiquette of the Servian Court, .His Majesty King Milan addressed Colonel Iaukea in the Ser vian language to which the Hawaiian Knvoy replied in the Hawaiian language, the two discourses being subsequently translated into the Knglish language. The reception of the Hawaiian Knvoy at the Serviau Court was of a most interesting and complimentary character owing to the interest awakened abroad in regard to Ha waiian alTairs. It ha- been stated at many points in Ku rope that a passport from the Foreign ofliee of the Hawaiian Kingdom is a valuable credential for travel in Kurnpe. The Islands of the Pacific. The annexation proposals of the Austra lian Colonies appear to have excited a great deal of attention all over the world. Kng land may refuse now to listen to them just as she did on the first instance in regard to the conversion of the Fiji Islands into a liiitidi colony. Hut unless some other ar rangement be made about the 1111 ippropri ated islands of the central and western Pa cific thechances are all against her and she will have to give way and take up the un desired responsibility :n she did in the case 01 riji. mere is nowever no g.o.i reason why the islands of the South Pacific shouh become appendages of distant power- nave not in tiiem ttie etc m-uts ot 111 uepenuence mat exist Here, au-i n.e caused Hawaii iu spiteof her small territory ami uuiiieu population to lie recognized as nn integral Mate and to be respected as such. But that is no reason why they 111 lit a . a a snouiu need tue protecting Hand ot any single Kuropeau power. Why should not their independence be as earefuily, guaran teed to them as is that of Hawaii, and that too in a more formal manner, and with witler range of consenting parties, than has ever been needed in our case? The sub ject is one well worthy of consideration by the people of this country. If any one is to interfere to prevent further aggrandization of foreign and distant powers in the Paci :ie, Hawaii ought to uo it. a mere -com pact between Kngland and France that neither will be the first aggressor, is hut a slender guarantee of independence. Langtry Goe3 in Swimming. The World nays: She walked dow n to the beach in a pair of tightly fitting knee breeches and a jaunty jacket belled in around the waist.

Amusements and Fashions on the Coast Probable Visitors for Honolulu. The Mariposa leaves to-day, carrying a select party, besides a large number of pass emrers. The arrival of this steamer will un doubtedly cause piite a stir in Honolulu so cietv, th-j Spreekels family you already know and of Senator Miller's family you must often have heard. They are seldom at rest; they hardly get home aud somewhat settled before they are on the wing again, bound for some other quarter of the silobe. Of Miss Dora we hoped to see more during this summer, now we have to commend her to the care of your beautiful city of which such flattering accounts from time to time reach us. We have heard of your salubri ous climate, your excellent band, (which by the way, we are anxious to hear; when are they coming?) your cocoanut groves, sea bathing, excellciit rides. Apropos. I saw a stylish and pretty riding habit the other day. I will describe it below. Two excursion parties are booked "or San Francisco this year overland, both from Boston; it is not unlikely that they will ex tend their journey to your islands, now that the accommodation for travel is so excel lent and there are prospects of a quick voy age. What caii you oiler if we cooie? How can you accommodate us? vVhut amuse ments can you oiler? Have you nice drives and good streets? Are there any music par ties, conceits, or lawn tenuis parties? The newest amusement for ladies -here is rille shooting and nearly every eveuiug finds the young ladies aud their visitors at tlte rifle rauge; they have become quite pro ficient aud "the boys" had better look out. San Francisco has beeu nearly deserted idling ttie last mouth. Thomas and his grand opera have gone. Of course you have heard all abnil Thomas' Festival, how peo ple went because it was fashionable aud how few were really pleased. I think the feelings and peculiarities of the audieuces at these concert might be tabulated about as follows: Per C'eut. Mtru. Women. Pleased 5 Shakily bored 10 JJoiv,l. but iiretciulrd to be pleased, 10 15 because it was t he correct tuiU, Awfully buieJ. Mtid thev were awful ly bored, aud don't care who knows it 80 0 100 100 The next grand event in musical atl'airs is to he an operatic festival with Nilssou, Sembrich ami Valleria as soprauj.s; Mad. and Mile. Lablache ascoutraltos; Campaui ni and Tomauya, tenors; Del Pueute and Kaschmau, baritones and Maram, basso. Mr. Mayer is making arrangements for a season of thirty operas, and a subscription list is now open. ' All light transparent stuffs are made with numerous puffs aud draperies. A bow of ribbon iu many loops is worn on the left shoulder of evening dresses by young 1 alies. Tan, stone-color and black are the popu lar color for the Jersey silk gloves, wofu with .summer dresses in the street. The standing Knglish collars with turned over points in lr.:it iiave never gone entirely out of use and are generally worn in warm weather. Hiding habits are made just long euough for tiie front to reach the ground when the wearer stands, and the longest breadths measure but ten inches more. A collar of plain liiu-u, with a small embroidered vine gives the only touch of white to the dress, for the sleeves are too tight for cuffs. A black silk hat, with a curved brim, is the proper head gear, and the gloves may be cither slate or tan color. Hair dressing is becoming more elaborate. The fashion of arranging the hair quite on the top of the head is gaining favor, and the frout is parted on the left side. Twists, coils, loops and braids are gathered up on the crown of the head, aad fastened there w ith long shell pins or jeweled combs. New yachting costumes are of dark green flannel, with ecru kid for the vest and col lar. Terra eotta serge dresses have a white sailor collar, with gilt anchors, and navy serge dresses have many rows of white braid, with white anchors on the collar, which is deep enough to serve as a cap?. The gayety of striped and checked fliu nels for tennis wear is now very striking; some ardent players will wear them en tirely, and others will merely utilize them as scarfs and haudkerchief knots to cos tumes of the new oatmeal cloths, aud a fresh manufacture known as the Russian fibre brocade, which is, iu reality, white Turkish toweling, with its looped meshes arranged iu floral designs, leaving the foun dation bare. Long Spanish l ice scarfs with flue silk meshes a-id hand-run figures both iu black aHd white are frequently seen drawn down the front of the basque, then carried ofl on each side to form paniers, and finished off with lo ps aud ends behiud. This is a pretty way of utilizing the scarfs that are not now'fashionably worn around the neck. The basket bonnets now represent great rushes braided together, and one of the ca prices is to trim these with bunches of wheat or straw, some of which is ripe and the remainder partly green. Sax Fkancisco, July 2j, 1833. A Lawn Tennis Tragedy. London, July lbth. The town of Bedford is iu great excitement over a lawn tennis tragedy. A party yesterday were playing lawn tennis near Ship Inn at St. Cuth bert's in the centre of the town. Among the players were Mr. Davere, an army offl cer, and Miss McKay, an exceedingly pretty young lady twenty years of age Suddenly, without provocation, Davere pulled out a revolver and shot Miss McKay dead. He then blew out his own brains. Both victims are well known in society and in both cases the only surviving rela tives are widows, ft is believed that jeal ousy was the motive 01 tue prime.

I have the honor to propose the heal tli of His Majesty's honored guests. Senator Miller responded to the toast. Ho spoke highly of the uoLle steaui-diip which had brought him to these shores. It was indeed, as His Majes ty's Minister had just said, a most noble specimen of naval architecture. It was a result of the recip rocal relations betveeu the United States and Ha waii. He was a cordial supporter of those recip rocal relations. He dwelt upon tlu; fact that his great couutry was receiving a full share of the benefits growing out of these relations. The Reci procity Treaty is not a mere contest between sugar refiners, but au exercise of wise statesmanship, binding contiguous states with mutually valuable commercial bonds. He rejoiced that more of his countrymen began to see the wisdom of reciprocity . The United States began this beneficent reciprocal relation with Hawaii. She will carry it out with Mexico aud other con tiguoas states. Tiie Senator spoke lengthily aud warmly in this strain and con cluded witli the seutiiiu-iit that the present friendly relations of reciprocity b-?twe.-n Hawaii and the United States be perpetual. Afterwards Mr. E. L Steele was called upon aud made a fw remarks, as President of the Oceanic Steamship Company. He said it was customary to speak of corporations as being without souls but the Oceanic Steamship Company was an exception as having a warm generous aud auimating soul iu the person of Mr. Claus Spreekels. When he came here and saw the beautiful mansion of Mr. Claus Hpreckels he understood the strong feeling that an imated him and that bouud him to the islands, and the steamship line would be a most active and fruitful expression of the good will of Mr. Spreek els and his associates towards the islands by pro moting increase of travel aud mutual confidential relations between the two countries. It had been said, had the numerous northern railroads run throughout the South there would have been uo war, aud so if there are frequent, swift aud comfort able communications between the- islands aud the O-iutiueut, their relations of amity aud reciprocity will lo perpetual. Mr.'J. D. Spreekels said he had hardly yet got orer the surprise of the m t cordial aud enthusi astic reception extended to him aud his associates of the Oceanic Steam Ship Lin. Hi- felt assured that there would be uo occasion to regret the high hopefulness uow awaiting them. Mr. Wm. G. Irwin said that he was proud to have x part iu this matter, and s.iould endeavor to the best of his ability to meet tue expectations of the public in the mauageni -ut of tue line 011 this side Senator Miller rose again to say a few words in reference to the action of Colonel Spreekels at Washington. He had changed opinions there, he had obliterated prejudices and awakened the high est confidence iu his purposes aud his statements He recognized that C-lonel Hpr.vkeU was a bene factor to this Kingdom, a credit to the United States aud a geueral benefactor to maukiud. Colonel Spreekels spake again. He regretted that he was not au orator like Senator Miller, or his friend to his right, Mr. Gibson, but lie cuiild state a few facts iu a plain manner. lie had met the President of the United States aud had discussed this country with him. , He had supposed that un due protits and advantages were realized here but he had pointed out to him how SI.2 j0.00i) had re ceutly been spent iu Philadelphia for steamships on island account, and he showed the large proportion of business of the carrying trade aud of cash ex pended wholly in the United States. When he bought sugar in Manila the money went to Eng land, when he bought sugar iu Honolulu the mou ey went to America. America was receiving her full share of benefits iu her relations with the is lauds and the President of the United States aud his Cabinet now appreciates as much. Hon. H. A. Wideniauu inadj au earnest speech setting forth the mutual benefits of the relations between the United States and this Kingdom. Mr. Samuel Parker and Mr. Bald.viu made a few- remarks and His Majesty rase from the table in the banquet hall and adjourned to the Green Koom at 10 p. m. The grounds of the Palace were lined with torch es which, with the brilliant illumination from the interior of the apartments made a most picturesque sceue.

In the August number of the Friend a list cf subscribers to the Chiuese Church at K-hala is given and the cost of the building is said to le $3,400, of which il.(Hh) still remains unpaid. In. this Kingdom where there are suioj l-VOj) Chi nese, upon whom the sugar planters and mill owners are to a great extent d-.p3ii.ljnt for their labor, it would not be at all out of plac? for the planters to contribute and a' -i-t the a iu tle-ir en deavors to supply themselves with the npaus of re ligions instruction. The wages of the ordinary Chinese laborer are not very large, an 1 conse quently his contribution caunot bj large?, bat the Chinese merchants and storekespc-rs have asdsted liberally and will b? only too grateful for any ont- lde assistance.

Her Arrival before Dawn- Yarns and Yawns- The Smash. The Dash. Her Departure. At midnight on Snudav the news was tele phoned through the twu that the Australia was coming, and by twos aud threes the people were Ljathored together ut Nolte's wuernthe inner mmi was revived with a cup of coffee, hot. By one o'clock about a huudred people hiul assembled ou the dock, the pilot had goue out and there was nothing to dy but to wait. Conversation, which was at first hrisk, gradually flagged, yawns, aud blessings on the pilot followed. One party went ou board the Pele, whL-n got adrift some how, to find a seat, as thev were not of the fa vored few who had secured chairs. There were present the man on the lookout for opium smug glers, the men and they wre many ou the ookout for the undiscovered lirowu, lured out of their bunks by the hundred dollar bribe; there were the uewspaper men, eager for tiles, the haekuieu jiud expressuu-u seakiug for 11 job, the fruit veudor with his brightly polished products of the soil, the harbormaster, the representative of the house of llackfeld, the joker who kuoeked od hats and the p.isHengers anxious to secure their berths f ji Frisco. Who, iu shu t, w is u t there' And still thc steamer came uot, neither did she move till tour o'clock when the joyful sound "she's i-omiug"' was heard. Au interval 01 hail au hour aud she loomed up through th -darkness coming eud ou to the wli irf, closer aud closer, till at last the cry ''Look out!" and crash she went into the timbers which were shattered aud splintered every where. "Back her; full speed astern,'' and hack she went. Nobody was killed aud all could breathe once more. The tines were got out uud made fast, then Came the tedious uess of the "hauling iu" the slack which was too much for the "gazeteer, who slid down the wharf piles into the Mirsh il's boat Mi l w is soon aboard. A few minutes that seem.fd like hours, for the rim of publication for our daily was drawiug near, a joyful yell "I've got Vm, send a boat.'' The boat was s.;ut, the tiljs and repoits came and then a dash was 111 ide to hunt up two sleepy eouips" and get it all iu type. Success! success! another adjournment for cof-fe.- aud again we tfot ahead of the little one. The departure of the Australia took place yes teiday afternoon, but moreauon. Exploration? On Maui. Professor Alexander who has just returned fr. iiu Maui where he has Wcii making some fn-sh explorations with Mr. Douglas Monsarrat reports some very import ant discoveries in the region east of the great crater of Ifaleakala, which hail hitherto been almost unexplored. The party made the ascent from Makawao and w.jut across the crater and up the north side. Tiiey camped four nights about two miles east of the great crater towards Haua, uear a small lake named Wai Ale. Beyond the crater and separated from it by a low ridge is a large valley which was probably a second crater, from two to three miles wide aud from l,r(X) to 2.000 feet deep heavily wooded with n dense im penetrable forest, This ancient crater belongs to the Kipahulu district, and is said to be the property of Oaptaiu Thomas Clark, it had evi dently discharged itself through a gap known an the Alae uui valley, and formed the district of Kipahulu where Captain Clark's plantation is. A low ridge separates the Kipahulu valley from the islaud basin of liana which is perhaps a continuation of the great crater of Kipahulu, just described, aud had its outlet iu the laud of Kakio. To the northeast is a large plateaw cov ered with craters, all of which are heavily wooded, aud the natives say there are more mountain lakes besides those seen by Professor Alexander. In clear weather the scenery at this point is not surpassed iu graudeur by anything in the islands. The weather was at times too rloudy for making observations, but sufficient information baa been obtained, to clear up the physical geography of east Maui, and a map of this islaud will probably be published at the end of the year. A party of ladies recently went across the Ilaleakala crater, and expressed themselves as h.iing well repaid with what they had seen for all the dilli -ulti s they had en countered aud successfully overcome iu the journey.

Mr. A. Christian, master of the schooner Nettie Merrill, reported on Thursday on his arrival from Lahaiua that he left there Wednesday evening and that before his departure news had beeu received that Mrs. U. J. Agnew, wife of Mr. Aguew, the proprietor of the Enterprise Feed Company, iu Honolulu, who was a passenger by the Likehke leaving here on Tuesday last, had jumped over board at half-past seven on that evening when iu mid-channel between Oahu and Molokai.

Mrs. Aiie only arriv ed 011 Monday morning from the Colonies where she had bseu visiting so in -4 friends. .No rea-tons whatever can be assigned for the mournful act by those who were well acquainted with the deea-e 1 and know her to have been a most hospitable, good natured and kind woman.
