THE HAPPY ISLES.
Continued from hi Popf.)
thai I would horo spunk. Tho day
wlioii 1 ltnd tho honor of last, seeing
hor Majosty nt tho Hoynl town rosi
dont'o in Honolulu was a typical ouo
of Ihoso dolioious latitudos. It was
at tho beginning of March, in tho
bygono yoar, tho worst of all our
Northern seasons for bittor winds
and uhilling skies; but (hero, tin
usual, a woathor of I'arndiso prevail
ed. Tho islands lay under tho azure
vault n pczzo di virlo ctiduln in Irrrn
as if indeed they had themselves
fallen from Heaven. Those higher
Archipelagoes of tho Pacific do not
exhibit, indeed, that lavish richness
of vegetation which marks tho moro
southerly groups. You will not, see
on tho slopes of Hawaii, or of Oalui,
or of Molokni, tho dark-gieon thick
ets which climb tho hills of the islets
clustered nearer to tho Equator.
The volcanic ridges of tho Sandwich
Islands riso in most places, severe,
bare, and yellow witn llio glow or a
perpetual sunshine upon their
grasses and dwarf-bushes. Nature tit
Hawaii does not overpower tho
sonses with her lloral and sylvan
luxuriance as she does in the groves
and lanes of Ceylon or tho gardens
of Singapore JJiit sho girdles these
lovely isles with a Cost us of wonder
ful beauty; and wherever tho rains
have washed fertile dchrix down into
tho gloiih and valleys, thoro she em
broiders ovory hollow with (lowers
and foliage; and makes oven the
herbage wonderful with plentiful
vnriotj' of blado and blossom. Once
clear of tho somewhat too American
looking streets and tramways of the
little city, tho soft and stiliny coun
try commences with a delightful ab
ruptness. Tho ugly side walls change
into tall hedges of hibiscus and
milk-bush, iutorlncnd with passion
vines. The unpleasing stono stores
and oilices are transformed into
pretty rural houses or picturesque
native huts. Tho palms, which could
hnrdly bo banished oven from the
streets and wharves, riho now in
clusters and avojiues, all leaning to
wards tho ocean as if thoy could not
live without, hearing that perpetual
voico of tho sea's thunder upon tho
circling roof, and without catching
tho salt breath of tho sea in their
feathery and over-rustling branches.
Tho commonplace awnings anil
"piazzas" of tho town are replaced
1)3 overhanging curtains of tho pur
plo clematis, tho largo blue-and-white
convolvulus, and of tho splen
did Uourgainvilliors this last, being
tho well-kuown Indian creeper,
which has a mass of colored leaves
for blossoms, and sifts tho sunlight
down through a myriad fingers, all
translucent with lilac light, as when
a delicate hand is held up against a
lamp. Tho gardens are all full of
(lowers, somo familiar, some strange;
and every house possesses its gar
den. Tho roads aro lined with mas
sive shado-troes, man- bearing largo
blossoms; and underneath them the
banana waves its long green (lags,
the champak fills tho air with per
fume, from delicate blooms of croamy
white and gold; and a slender,
smooth-leaved plant with tiny ver
milion ilowors climbs evo'whoro up
tho stoms of tho breadfruit and pop-por-trees
and iron-woods. Uoses aro
growing on all sides, and mingle,
woll acclimatised, with tho red' hi
biscus blossoms and tho silver trum
pets of tho datum. Nobody regards
Ilowors as a luxury in these lovely
islands. Thoy aro an accepted neces
sity of daily life, like rico and bread
and fresh water. Tho Kanaka, go
ing down to fish, winds them round
his grass hat. Tho Hawaiian girl,
riding astride to market upon hor
pony, has twisted a spray of shell
llowors, or some pomegranate buds
in hor black hair; tho brown-skinnod
clerk sticks a "morning-glory" behind
his oar along with the pen; and your
coachman carries a bouquet in his
waist-cloth. On ono hand, as you
drive, aro always tho mountains; on
tho other shinos always tho sea,
with, between tliom, tho narrow but
verdant lowland and fore shore,
whoro rice-fields spread, wit h patches
of banana and sugar-cano, and where
amongst flocks of wator-fowl, tho
mynas and rico-birds flit ami chir
rup. Abovo and around spreads al
ways tho charm of tho soft, warm,
benignant Heaven, which seems to
brood in peace over theso bright,
islands; an air breathes which is
like balm to iuhalo, fresh and crisp
and salted from tho neighboring
waves, and j'et sweet and mild with
tho flowers and tho sum-hino,ho that
anew pleasure aiises in tho simple
act of breathing. 1 imagine, too,
that all this has been thrown up
prunovall' from tho bottom of tho
ocean in some fiory convulsion of the
iiarth's crust, and has slowly, by
silent magic of Nature, developed
into such grace, and peace, and
beauty. Whon 3-ou walk along the
seashore botwoon Honolulu and Dia
mond Head, you sinilo at the dismal
and timid astronomers who think
tho beautiful life of this uni verso is
coming to an end simply because a
few planets nud suits hero and there
bum themselves out, and have to
begin again somehow or other. Tho
way to tho loveliness of Oalui was
by lire and earthquake.
Yet, perhaps, tho strangest and
fairest feature about these and
similar islands is tho encircling reof.
From where we sato with the tjueon,
not at tho loliini J'alaeu, but in a
garden room of hor house in tho
suburbs of Honolulu, one could see
through the palm-stems and the
banana-flags to tlint marvellous sea
picture. Along tho southern face of
Oalui, and following tho curve of
tho shore, tho coral insects, always
at work, have built up a submarine
barrier, which shuts tint ocean away
like a harbor wall, it is true that
tho groat billows of tho outer 1'acilic
sweep over tho hidden obstruction,
but their roots aro arrested and
broken, and only their crests roll
harmlessly over the reof. Thus you
see two distinct belts of color round
tho islands--ouo tho dark blue ex
panse of the sea, and the other tho
smooth nud lender green of the in
ner waters, encircling tho shore as if
with an emerald bafdrio. In ordi
nary weather theso inner waters lio
in profound cnlni, marked off from
the bluo and silver ocean by just
one lino of milky foam, whoro the
swoop of tho sea'strikeq against tho
coral rock. Ships pass into this
quiet lagoon by a passage in the
roof, very well designated by colored
buoys. Hut the light native craft,
canoes, and proas come gaily on top
of the subinarino wall, or through
shnllower ontranceSj and pretty it is
to watch tho Hawatians shoot, their
boats like arrows over (he barrier.
With loud nud well-harmonised
songs, flashing paddles, and (lower
garlands on tlioir black hair; their
brown, shapely bodies standing out
against tho unbroken blue, they
mount upon tho roller, as if it, were
a lingo sea-horse, and coino (lying
over in a swirl or foam into the in
stantaneous peace and safety of tho
Queen Liliuokalani is about fift'
fivo roars of age, of pleasant and
dignffied presence, with the island
comeliness in her placid and gentle
features, and tho dark, soft, brown
island oyes. Sho is a descendant as
well as a represent ativo of King
Kamehninohn I ho First, who
louiHied llio dynasty, being the
sister of Kalaltaua tho Fust, a
grand nephew of Kainohainoha.
Her husband, tho Hon. John O.
Domini, since deceased, was not
of American blood, as is said,
but of Spauish or I'ortuguonQ. His
portrait, in the Queen's sitting-room,
presented an intelligent and I houglit
ful face, dark enough to bo almost
of the island complexion. Their
daughter, nioeo tho Princess Vic
toria Kaiulani, born in IS75, was
proclaimed heir-apparent in ISitl,
and enjoys a right to the succession
which cannot bo put aside by sugar
filibusters, or revolutions "as a strict
ly cash bais." Charming in appear
ance and manners, nud of high and
cultivated intelligence, she must bo
sull'ering much at present for her
lioytil mother's sake and for tho sake
of her people, whoso rights and
wishes have been apparently thrust
aside. A beautiful portrait, of tho
Princess was in tho Queen's reception-room,
side bj' hide with
ono of King David Kalakaua; but,
her Koval Highness was then, as
now, staving in Europe. Wo talked
of 0 Lono'x, Captain Cook's first
visit to the islands, andof ilowors
for the conversation naturally
turns to them in this' Garden of
tho Sea. Her Majesty had on her
writing-tablo a carved "poi" bowl
full of pretty bluo water-lilies, the
Indian lotus, which led to speaking
of India and the Empress of India.
Queen Liliuokalani talked with en
thusiasm of our Sovereign's kindness
to her at tho time of tho Jubilee, of
her happiness to sit near to hor
Majesty in Westminster Abbey, and
of tho memorable siglfts ot that
groat historical occasion. Site speaks
Jiiiiglish not only fluently, but with
the utmost grace anil correctness,
having a solt and musical voice,
especially noticeable when sho was
pleased to say to mo about England
in Hawaiian, "Ho aina oluolu ko ou
kou,"' which .signified, sho graciously
said, "You hao indeed a delightful
If, by any hard chance, this inter
esting kanaka dynasty is to come to
an end, it. is very unlikely that tho
United States Government will wish
to break its political tradition by as
suming possession of tho Hawaiian
Jicalin; and equally unlikely that tho
Maritime Powers could accept such
a seizure of tho Key of tho Pacific.
Queen Liliuokalani will probably bo
restored- -but failing this, there is
a solution of tho problem which
might meet favorable consideration
from all tho Powors concerned.
There aro now upon tho Sandwich
group not less than 16,A00 Japanese,
immigrants who have come from
Yokohama and Nagasaki to work on
tho sugar plantations. They aro
orderly, industrious people, and have
done inoro for tho prosperitj of Ha
waii than tho Chinese or Portu
guese The latter, who aro also
resident in considerable numbers,
nail clnelly lrom the Azores, and aro
a poor and feeble folk; while tho
Chinese visit tho islands only to
make dollars and to ret urn. "Tho
best possible "Protector," therefore,
of the Hawaiian Archipelago, in the
ovont of tho surcease of the rightful
Jioyal House, would, bo his Imperial
Majesty tho Emperor of Japan.
Yokohama is distant only (en days
from Honolulu. Tho Japanese Gov
ernment has tho necessary ships,
men, and materials; no Power would
bo jealous of it, proper regulations
boiug agreed to beforehand as to
native rights, tariffs, and all other
conditions of the Protectorate. To
gether with a largo Japanese immi
gration, and under tho mild and con
scientious administration of Japa
nese ollicials, the islands would reach
a prosperity hitherto undreamed of,
while there is allinity enough be
tween tho people of Dai Nippon and
tho native people to ensure that
thoy would got along wiry well to
gether, as, indeed, is now tho case
wherever the Japanese and the Iln-
waiians live side by side.
