The -ymptoin- f recovery of trade c- stated in these columns last week are but -lowly manifested. Another reported tail of 3-10ths of a cent in -ujrar ha- a tendency to cause would : e speculators from making any ex tensive investments. The monotony of the week lias been somewhat re lieved by the arrival of the S. S. Mari posa on Tuesday, the meeting of the Hawaiian Bell Telephone Co. on Wednesday, the meeting of the Mu tual Telephone Co. on Thursday, the arrival of the S. S. Arabic from Hong kong on the same day. The rival telephone companies have started a war which will be fought to the bitter end. judging from the firmness to vhien eaeh party adhere- to its principles. A -ummary f their de liberations and the resolutions they i-a--e'i have been fully reported In these column-. file Arabic " brought 00 Chinese laborers who have been permitted to 'and, and are now at the quarantine -ration. The landing was allowed in :his cae becau-e it was found that the notices and warnings which had been u'iven to the Pacific r-. .S. Co. on the -ubject of Chinese immigration, had not been conveyed to the Oriental and Occidental .S. S- Co. the owners of the 'Arabic.' The Arabic r brings in telligence that the 44 City of Peking " will not call here, and it may be presumed that there will be no fur ther arrivals of Chinese in large quan tities. The "City of Paris" with - ortuguee immigrants should come :o the relief of the labor market next month. Tiie rec'-ipts or" -ugai by inter-i-land Tr.ir- have amounted, during the wek to L''-,"))t bag-, an 1 the ieport from other districts are favorable for -imilar, it' not larger, out-turns lor -ome week- to come.

Tiie S. ity of Paris sailed from London lor 1 lonoluln via Madeira and A -ore-, on the .'VUh March.

The supposed miraculous conception: the bringing down of Buddha from the Tu-ita heaven: the Iev;ts acknowledging hi-.-upremacy. the presentation of the 1-m-ile, when the images of India and other goods thrtw themselves at his feet: the temptation by Mara which legends ate tubellished by the modern writer I have already quoted, under such, phrase- as 'Conceived by the H iy CrliOst, ' 'Born f thr Viigia Maya, 'Song of the heavt nly Lo-t," 'Presentation in the Temple and temptation in the wilderness' none ot these is found in the early Pali tet-. dk: simple story of ancient Buddhism that an ascetic, whose family mime was Gua tauiu, prenched u new doctrine of human sutl'ering, and ;i new way of deliver mce from it. There is no thought in the eariy Buddhism, of which we read in the Pali tests, of deliverance at the hands of a god: but the man, Gautama Buddha, stands alone m hi striving after the true emanci pation, from sorrow and ignorance. The accounts of his descending from heaven, and being conceived in the orld of men, when a preternatural light shone over the worlds, the blind received sight, the dumb sang, the lame danced, the sick were cured, together with all such embellish ments, are certainly added by latter hands; aud if here we recognise some rather re markable likenesses in thought or expres sion to things familiar to us in our Bibles, we need not be astonished, when we re flect how great must have been the inilu ence. as I have before, hinted, of the Christian story in India in the early cen turies of the Christian era, and, perhaps, longjisubsequently. This is a point which has been much overlooked; but it is abundantly evideut from, among other proofs, the story of the god Kriehna, wdiich is a manifest parody of the history of Christ. The liiaravat'O ita, a theo sophical poem put in the mouth of Krish na, is something unique among the production.-, of the East, containing many gc-ius of what we should call Christian truth wrested from their proper setting, to adorn this creation of the Brahman poet, and indicating as plainly their ori gin a.- do the stories of his life in the Jfaia-JJharatcc so that it has not unrea sonably been concluded that the story of Krishna was inserted in the .Mciha-Jlhfi -at(( to furnish a divine sanction to the Bharfacut-Gita . If, then, as theie is the stronge.-t reason to believe, the Christ ian story, somewhere between the first and tenth centuries of the Christian era, forced itself into the Hindu epic, and was at the foundation of tin- most remarkable poem that ever saw the light in India, can we he surprised if we and similarly bor rowed and imitated wonders in th-- latter Buddhist stories also Several Home and Colonial application- to join the In stitute a- guinea Subscribers were received, ami its object being to investigate all philosophical and scientific questions es pecially any said to militate against the truth of the Bib'v a discussion eusiiMi in which Mr. Hormu.d llassam.

Dr. Leitner brought a large number of photographs of early Indian and Tartar sculptures, showing the nr.-t introduction of the Christian story into those monuments betn-een about the. second and tenth centuries, and he po inted out the vaiue of such additional coiiiirnia tioii of Mr. Collins' statements.
