First Anniversary Ball atti.e Hawaiian Hotel It was
reaily a very creditable affair and passed off pleasant
I v The “beauty and fashion” of this tropical city was
well represented, Mrs. M. Raple (wife of tl.e editor ot
the tin zette) being acknowledged as the most hand-
some lady present. W. L. Sheldon (editor of the P.

and interesting address, reviewing the history of the
Eieursi.n to the lolcmio.
The steamer Kilauea left on the 2d instant with
large number of excursionists, bound to the scene of
tlie new eruption of Moku-weo-weo, summit of Mauna
Lm Hawaii We have news that the crater is unusu
ally'active at present, sending a pillar of fire several
hundred feet above the edge and visible from all points
of the island during tbe night, while the atmosphere
around At aui and Oahu, for the past week, has been
very thick and smoky.
On thefMth of August we experienced a slight sen
sation in the shape of a tidal wave Iu Honolulu, (by
I r.'t Clark's patent tide-register,) it raised only
twenty inches above high watermark; but on Kauai
it raised Nearly four feet.
By letters from Hilo last week tliecrater of Kilauea is
reported as being very much stirred up about some
thing, (probably the change ot Ministry,) and the ex
cursionists expect to be highly rewarded for their trip
Among the number are H. M. Whitney, former pro
prietorof the P. C. Advertiser, who will no doubt furn
ish the most graphic and interesting account of the
phenomena that is possible to be obtained, and his

BY JAMES m’aKTHUR.
Farewell to tiie Jewaharp that long I have tinkled
In tones sad or merry as suited my heart I
Farewell while yet hopeful, with care all nnwrinkled
My brow beams with youth—we are fated to part
No more shall the numbers of glee, or ofsaduess
Vibrate on the air from thy swift-stricken tongue—
I lay thee aside, deep in gloom,not in gladness—
If I utter more numbers O, may I be hung I
In the days of the past I did chant the full praise
Of Lindrnm, of Garrett, of Quitm and all sich,
But experience teaches that harping scarce pays,
And poets in Milledgeville never grow rich,
And the finest ot strains tiiat my jewaharp poured out
Never brought a potato vile hunger to stay ;
•So my Jewaharp! go hence I l'jl not travel your
But I’ll grabble for goobers in a more cracker
O harp of my heart I When on Governor Smith
Thou didst lavish thy music, fat office methouglit
By thy full (lowing numbers, and wittiest pith,
For tliy master, most surely an office tliou’dst
But thy strains all unheeded, the finger tiiat smote
All feeble from hunger, fed not even with praise,
To silence forever I now do devote thee,
Farewell—oil, forever farewell to thy lays!
Western View of Inter state Transportation.
The above is tbe title of an extremely interes
ting article in tbe September number of that ablest
of American monthlies, the “Atlantic Monthly.”
Tbe whole contents of this, and other numbers
of “Tbe Atlantic Monthly” are possessed of the
highest interest and literary merit. The number
before us is replete with other interesting articles:
but the leading article to Georgians, in value, is
the one mentioned above. In it, the argument is
presented, irresistibly, in favor of Water transpor
tation of the heavy agricultural products of the
GreatWesttothedor.se populations of the East'
eru or Atlantic States. It is from the able pen of
Charles Seymour of Wisconsin. By Canal trans
portation, the heavy agricultural products of the
West can reach the Atlantic at one sixth of the
expense of transportation by rail Great Canals
are, therefore, advocated at the National cost.—
No better or wiser investment of a.few millions of
dollars could be made. The great canal through
the interior of Georgia, advocated by Col. Frobel,
and the great seaboard Canal championed by
Col. Raiford of St. Marys. are parts of this grand
and beneficent scheme. We hope to see these great
projects pressed ou the attention of Congress, and
crowned with success. With a grand Seaboard
Water-Route, crossing the Peninsula of FloriJa,
through Okefenoke S'vamp, and bringing millions
of tons of Western produce aiong the South-Eas
tern border of Georgia : Htid with the great Ten
nessee River Canal through the interior of Geor
gia from the Northwestern to the Southeastern
border of the State ; the day of our rapid prosperi
ty will dawn. And dawn it will.

The Romance of Arithmetic,
The singularity of the title copied above led ns to
read it atonce on receiving the September number of
thatbestof Monthly periodicals, “The Eclectic Maga
The article referred to is mainly devoted to the
very singular properties of the figure 9. Well may
tiie article in question term it “the most romantic of all
Tiie first of these properties is, that all through the
multiplication table, the restiltnnt figures where the
figure 9 is one figure, if added together, make tiie sum
of nine. Thus, 9 + 2-18; and I ♦ 8-9, 9 * 3 27; and 9 + 79.
And so, except inthe case of 9x11, the product of
which is simply the figure nine repeated. This property
w as first remarked by Mr. W. Green who died in
M. deMaivan discovered that if yon tako aoy row
of figures, andireversing their order, make a substme-
tiou sum of it, the total is sure to bo 9; or a multiple
of 9. Take 5071
Reverse the figures 1705
Sum of these (3 13161 6)-18. The article is replete
with other curious properties of this mysterious figure,
and will richly repay perusal. The other articles in
this number ol The Electic are overflowing with in

On • he morning of the 2d, tho usual quietness of the
oity was enlivened by a shooting match which occurred
on the l’all of Nuuanu, (about seven miles back of the
town.) It seems that a Portugese had been making
love to a half white daughter of a man named Watson.
The papa did not approvo of the intimacy, haring
more ambitious views for the young lady. However,
the syrup colored pair concluded to recede from the
neighborhood, and about midnight started for town
with the intention of patronizing a priest. While as
eroding the Ball they were disagreeably surprised b\
meeting the angry parent and a tierce brother. A col
lesion was the consequence, and the result was that the
brave knight received several charges of buckshot.
'1 In- maiden started for tbe town during the melee, and
informed the police of the interesting state of affairs.
Arrests have been made on both sides—one for abduc
tion, ami the other for attempt to murder. A hearing
was had before the Police Magistrate yesterday, but
as the wounded man was unable to appear, owing to
the severity of his injuries, the case was postponed,
and the father and son released on bail to the amount
of one thousand dollars each.
Iu a Bad Fix.
The department of onr city morals, which is presided
over by the Police Magistrate, has been somewhat
neglected of late,owmg to the fact that the commission
of that official Imd run out, without any new appoint
ment being made for nearly a week. It was expected,
owing to,the many changes that were going on, that
the aforesaid official would have to walk, as he is not
as popmar either with the authorities or the public as
he might be. In consideration of his grey hairs, and
his unfitness for any other position, he has received
the necessary documents again to enable him to dis
pense justice to the uulortunate wretches that usually
attend his morning receptions.
The small pox has entirely died oat, and the pest-
house is without an occupant. All efforts to prove
that the steamship Nebraska introduced the disease
here has failed, as it did inthe Colonies.
Among the usual amount of gossip which assists to
keep us alive, the most talked of is the marriage of
S. G. Damon (connected with the banking house of
Bishop & Co.) to Miss Hattie Baldwin (a daughter of
one of the pioneer missionaries, and a very distaat rel
ative ol your corrospoudent,) which takes place this
evening at Fort-street Church. Everything is to be
haul Inn, with five bridesmaids and the corresponding
number of groomsmen, and an unlimited number of
invitations issued to witness the ceremony.
Shipping in Pori
Is very light at present. The Aberdeen clipper George
Thompson, from Newcastle, is discharging coals. She
is a magnificent vessel, and it is really a pleasure to
visit her and bee with what perfection in nautical mat
ters they do things in the laud of the “Canpa Scot.

Valparaiso with a load of sugar, arrived on the 1st,
leaking seriously, and will behove down for repairs be-

fearful force for twelve hours, during which the ship
was severely strained, besides losing a portion of her

The English ketch lno left to-day for Storbiick and
Navigator Islands, with an assorted cargo, and several
passengers for the latter place. On her arrival from
th Navigatois, she brought a cargo of cocoanuts
thousand to his sea side residence at Waikikai,
The Guano Company’s supply schooner C. M
Hard,arrived August 2Uth from a cruise among the
various Islands, and sails again to-dav. She reports
the following vessels: U- S. S. Narragansett touched
at Baker's Island, July 28tli, and proceeded ou her
cruise *o the southwest. American ship Sardis was at
Howland’S Island August 2d, with 1,000 tons guano on
board and expected to flail in a few days. American
ship Jonah 1. Hale arrived at Baker’s Island, July
31=t 102 days from Hamburg, and was loaded for Eu

btig Kamehameha returned August 31st, from a two
months’s cruise among the Islands to the westward,
having taken a Bperm whale making 40 barrels, etc.
She discovered the wreck of the German brig Wander
er on Lisiansky Shoals, which went ashore some time
iu Muy last, while on the passage from Saa Francisco
to the coast ofTartary. From appearances, it is sup
posed that the cre w must have left the scene of the
wreck in one of the boats.
A portion of the Hawaiian navy lias been laid up for
want of funds. Cupt. Brown’s iron-clad Scooper lias
been withdrawn from service and lies in statu quo,
much to the satisfaction of her commander, who re

in souudiug the state of public opinion.

Senator Sumner in Europe.
Mr. Sumner was in London for a few days only
and is now in Paris. I had a good deal ofconver-
satioc with Mr. Sumner during his visit, and
thinking, from his peculiar position iu regard to
the Presidential contest, that his view* might bo
of interest to your readers, 1 send, with his con
ent, some statements which he made, though
they were not uttered with the expectation of theii
being printed. Mr Sumner had not seen the com
meets which certain journals had made upon his
sudden departure for Europe, and was indignant
that any one should suppose that it was from in
clination tiiat he is not now heartily engaged in
urging the election of Horace Greeley upon the
American people. He declared that he consented
to go abroad only after bis old friends, Dr. Dow
ditch and Dr. Howe, declared that it was impossi
ble for him to make a single speech without in
curring serious danger.
Mr. Sumner said ho regarded the Liberal nomi
nation as an eminently good one It has placed in
opposition to one of the most ignorant men that
ever held office in the Unitod States a man of es
tablished literary reputation ; a man whose whole
influential career has been achieved by the unaid
ed power of his intellect and tbe honesty of his
character. Tbe nomination has placed in opposi
tion to a merely selfish, commonplace person, s
man whose history is a salient feature of the time
and is characteristic of the country. Some of the
attacks upon Mr. Greeley, by men who ought to
honor him, are such as he, Mr Sumner, believed
would be bitterly repented by those who have

The newspapers of Sweden are discussing tbe
alarming decrease of population in that country,
which they attribute, directly to emigration, es
pecially emigration to this country.. In 1868, the
number of emigrants had reached to 30,000, more
than half of whom were able-bodied workmen and
mechanics. In 1809, the exodus was still greater,
38,500 having ha\ing left the country. At the
date of August 20th, there had left tbe town of
Goethebog r aione 20,463 people for America, and
they left regularly after, i.t the rate of 100 and
200 per week. This drain haa been since perpet

The Pennsylvania Election.—Al
exander McClure’s statement as to the
result of the Pennsylvania election is
that, while 20,000 Democrats refused
to vote in the State, 50,000 illegal
votes were cast for Hartranft in Phila
delphia. The first ward, he says, gave
Hartranft 23.600 majority. Two hours
later, alarmed at their own work, they
reduced the majorities below IS,000,
and sent them on as revised returns.
In no ward in Philadelphia did Hart
ranft honestly run ahead of his ticket.
I had hourly returns from many parts
of the city, and he was almost uniform
ly behind—never ahead. Mr. Eng
lish, a Federal office-holder, and the
most expert election arithmetician in
the city, was President of the Election
Board, with Lane as Secretary. The
returns were read off and papers sign
ed before the figures were footed up.
The Cincinnati Enquirer has this
consoling paragraph : “The temporary
back-set received in the late election
may be calculated to shake faith ,in
the honesty and good sense of the
American people, but the Liberal par

thieves and corruption.”
Tragedy in Savannah.—On the
1th inst., a terrible tragedy occurred
Savannah. Alexander Dillon, son
of Mr. David R. Dillon, Banker, en
tered his father’s office pale and evi
dently laboring under some mental ex-
tement. He entered the backroom
of the office where his father transacts
his private business. On seeing him
his father began to reprimand him
severely. The young man swore he
would not put up with such language,
and in the excitement of the moment
drew his pistol and fired at his father
three times, one balling taking effect
in the right arm, one in the head and
another in the thigh. After commit
ting this act he shot himself in the
breast aud expired in about twenty
minutes. Mr. Dillon’s wounds were
dressed in his office.
The Mother, on hearing of the fatal
tragedy, rushed out of her house and
ran down the street to the office,
screaming, and lamenting, abusing and
threatening the father for what she
supposed to be his own act. On
reaching the office, she endeavored to
get in the room where Mr. Dillon was,
but was refused. She then entered
the room where the dead body of her
son lay. All the agonized feelings of
a bereaved mother were given free
vent to. She wailed over the lifeless
body of her son. and with tearful eyes
and heavy groans kissed his cold lips.
Do, Christians be cheerful! You
say you have too many cares. Then
you have no business to have so many.
You were not sent into the world to
worry and fret. You are carrying im
aginary burdens. Take a pencil and
write down some of those coming evils
that are just ready to darken your life,
and which you are so exercised about,
as to how shall you meet them—aud by
and by look up the list, and see how
many of your fears were grondless, and
and how many others were in no way
modified by your brooding over them
Wouldn’t your affairs get along just
as well—if, doing the best you could,
cheerfully left all to a wise ordering
Providence? We could plead espe
cially for a cheerful ministry. Noth
ing helps a minister so much as a
great fund of humor and good nature.
It will prove a social magnet attract
ing to him a multitude who could nev
er be reached by habitual solemn dig
nity. There are a few exceedingly
proper people, who tire much concern
ed about ministerial proprieties
Their ideal of a minister is that of one
who is ever abstractly and profoundly
solemn; as if such themes as death
judgment and eternity were never for
a moment out of his mind. He fears
to smile, lest he should lose an oppor
tunity of saving his soul. What
some one, deeply concerned for his
salvation,* convicted of sin and only
needing counsel to lead him to the Sa
vior, slhoud in such a state see the
minister enjoying a laugh or carrying
a countenance wreathed in smiles!
Dear Mrs. Propriety, if your obser
vation had been extensive you would
have discovered that sinners are more
easily approached, influenced and led
to Christ by one whose faith takes on
forms of radiant joy, rather than of
severe and perpetual solemnity.
We plead for a cheerful ministry
not only because of its better and
broader influence but in behalf of the
preacher himself. He is called to
deal with tough problems. Hard stu
dy tends to draw fixed unyielding lines
in his countenance. He is called to
frequent contact with sickness, trouble
and death. Funerals make large drafts
upon his sympathies and feelings
More than almost any one else, he is
called to walk where the shadows fall,
md pain and sadness darken the way.
These things may tend to a habit of
gloom and depression almost uncon-
He should learn the art of quick re
lief from the influence of these things.
He should learn to take all cares, his
own and those of others, to Him who
says.- “Come, and I will give you

Character.—An established busi
ness house, whether the enterprise of
one person, or under the control of an
association of several, appropriates to
to itself a certain individuality—a
character depending, like that of an in
dividual, very much upon the motives
and principles governing the actions.
The desirable possessions of individu
als come under the head of two princi
ple classes—the one material, and pur
chased with money; the other intangi
ble, and only attainable by a strict ad-
herance to the path of duty and up
rightness. Both are of uncertain ten-
re, and have to be watched and guar
ded, each according to its nature, by
the possessor, if he will retaiu them ;
both are needful to the enjoyment of
life. In the same way a business firm
needs, besides the necessary capital for
pursuing the business, a reputation—
something to inspire a certain amount
of confidence; in one word, a charac
ter. And as an individual’s character
is not so much dependent upon the
prominent actions of life, but is made
and built up from his everyday trans
actions, from the apparantly little-
noticed small events of everyday
life, so the character of a house
will be established, not from the
rules and regulations held out and pro
claimed to the community, but from
the common business traq^ptions of
each succeeding day. As the man who
fails to establish a first-class charac
ter had generally pure enough hopes
and aspirations in the start, and only
lacked the requisite steadfastness to
withstand the pressure of temptations
and bad examples, so almost all busi
ness enterprises are undertaken with
fair intentions regarding the manner
of their dealings. It is the waut of
sufficient integrity and unyielding op
position to all overreaching, which
draws many into practicing what some
call customs of trade, but what should
be classed with, and shunned like dis
honesty. Hence comes the great dif
ferences in the way that our feelings
and sensibilities are effected in dealing
with different houses; for character
will proclaim itself and cannpt be dis
guised. In some houses we could
mention, whatever assertion is made,
for instance regarding the quality of
goods, or the lowest possible price,
we invariably look for further varify-
ing evidence, and even if convinced
that what is said is true, we feel reluc
tant to admit it; while in other firms,
do such misgivings assail us, our confi
dence needs no refreshing stimulus; an
assertion is felt to be the truth, and
our sensations, in all our intercourse
with such houses, is altogether pleas
ant. In no small degree are employ
ees instrumental in forming the appa
rent character of a house. A looseness
or levity in conducting their business
transactions, or the slightest deviation
from the truth, will often bring a good
house into disrepute, though the firm
may be innocent and utterly ignorant
of any attempt to deceive or impose
on their customers.— The Carpet Trade.

. The waning meon shines pale and still:
The winds in russet branches die ;
Day faints upon the darkening hill,
And melts into the days gone by.
The vanished days I now dim and far,
Yot none so dead they cannot wake
And stir in me, as yon high star
Quivers, deep-visioned, in the lake.
They glimmer down the moon's long beam.
They rustle in the russet trte ;
They fade in twilight's melting dresm,
Aud slide in starlight down to me.
I feel the hush of brooding wings-
Tiie warmth of tender joys far flown,
And little flights and Batterings
Of blessings that were once my own.
Bnt O most sweet, and O most sad.
Of all these lost delights that thrill I
The blessing- that I almost had,
But life can never more fulfill.
And yet ’tie strange, bnt these are more
My own, to-night, than all beside,
Glad s ars upon a dii taut shore,
That draw my sails across the tide.
Fade, golden evening, fade and sink I
Burn, crimson leaves, burn out aud fall I
For life is greater than we think,
Aud death the surest life of all.

IF WE KNEW.
If we knew the baby fingers
Pressed against the wiudow pane
Would be cold ami stiff to morrow—
Never trouble us again—
Would tbe bright eyes of our darling
Catch the frown upon our brow 1
Would tbe print of rosy lingers
Vox us thou, as they do now 7
Ah I those little, ice-cold fingers,
How they point our memories back
To tbe hasty words and actions
Strewn along our backward track I
How those little bauds remind us,
As iu snowy grace they lie.
Not to scatter thorns—but roses—
For our reaping, by aud by!
Strange we never praise the music
Till i he sweet-voiced bird has gone!
Strange that we should slight the violets
Till the lovely flowers are blown I
Strange that summer skies and sunshine
Never seem one-half so fair
As when winter's suowy pinions
Shade the white down in the a ; r I
Lips from which the seal of silence
None bat God can roll away,
Never blossomed in such beauty
As adorns the month to-day—
And sweet words that freight oar memory
With their beautiful perfume,
Come to. us in sweetest accents
Through the portals of the tomb!
Let us gather up the sunbeams
Lying all around our path ;
Let us keep the wheat and roses,
Casting out the thorns and chaff;
Let *is find our sweetest comfort
Iu the blessings of to-day,
With a patient hand removing
Alt the briers from our way !
Farrow and Conley Call for
United States Soldiers.—The At
lanta Herald says:
1 The guilty fleeth when no man
pursueth,” is a truism which a sane
man cannot doubt who has observed
the conduct of some of the Radicals of
late in this State. The climax was
reached yesterday by Conley and Far
row, when they had put their little
brains together to devise some manner
by which their nefarious game of ar
raying the white and colored people
against each other, culminated by
them in ostensibly taking counsel of
theii fears; that calling upon the
commandant of the military to furnish
them protection while they discharg
ed the duties devolving upon them
in the further investigation of the char
ges against some of our citizens for the
illegel offense of having violated the
A squad of twelve soldiers were
marched from the barracks to Commis
sioner Conley’s Court Room, under
command of Capt. Wra. Mills, Second
Regiment United States Army, where
they were held for the protection of the
Court. Maj. Smythe, the United States
Marshal, made the requisition for the
soldiers only upon the order of Conley,
at the suggestion of Farrow, who pro
fessed to be greatly alarmed.
The counsel for the prisoners, des
pairing of accemplishing anything’ for
the relief of their clients before a Court
determined to bind them over, and in
view of the presence of the soldiers in
the Court room in a period of profound
peace, waived further examination, and
elected to give bond for their appear
ance at the next term of the United
States Circuit Court. The Commis
sioner fixed the bond at $3,000 in the
case of each of the following prisoners :
P. Wells, S. E. Morris, J. G. Braz-
