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

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.

The Hawaiian Envoy Abroad.
IN RUSSIA.
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.

gazed ami gazed, while others ran down
from the hotel, as the word passed from
mouth to mouth that the Idly was about to
take 11 plunge and a swim
She waded out slowly and yet more slow
ly, the water creeping up on the little km-e
breeches by inches, and gaining slowly on
the belted brown jacket. Suddenlv the iv
ory Jarms gleam for an instant, and she
plunges out of sight.
The billows roll iu upon the beach and
the white arms shine out again, shaming
the foaming surf. The brown locks fall
heavy on her back. The knee-breeches and
the jacket makv a plunge.
This was the Lily's first dip. She will
bathe no more.

OUR LADY'S LETTER.
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:

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.

We all Udield on last TaesJay at noon, one wf
the noblest specimens of naval architecture enter
ing the harbor of Honolulu, and couiin-j t these
islands ou a beueticieut iiiiisioti to promote, its ag
ricultural and commercial development, and tlu
general prosperity of its people; and we have here
before us, and are honored by th? preseuce of the
animating spirit, tins eulighteued promoters of the
great maritime enterprise, so eventful iu Hawaiian
afl'airs, the Oceanic Steam dnp Line, iuitiated by
the splendid and unprecedented trip of the Maripo
sa. whoe swiftly markod ocean track will bind like
a magic chain the great Golden State with the cor
al bound Kingdom of the Pacitic. 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. The table in the amiug room was most
tastefully arrauuged the intermingling of flowers
with the massive plate being particularly pleasing
and attractive to the eye.

this Kingdom where there are suioj l-VOj) Chi

THE S. S- AUSTRALIA.
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.

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
