PKiruEsyr? and Pobtic Cannibals?How mtfY Eat thbir Esukiks.?Tho nineteenth century has been carried to the Islands of the Pacific by the Missionaries. and one of the best of our '-Western exchanges is the Honolulu Advertiser Its principal contents are whaling reports and advertisements of a commercial and marine ehara<-ter. but wc find tbe follow ing iu a late number. Thin* of sending a rc K?rter to a cannibal battle and feast! Its very eraldisb: llauaveve Valley, which lies opposite tbe Bay, does not resem'ule our Hawaiau valliee. It is not a gentle slope between two hills, but a ravine with steep sides, apparently split out from tbe mouutaiua. It is, however, oue of tb * largest, mo-t beautiful and productive of the mauy g'.ens of Fatubiva Tbe valley has re cently been tbe wane of a protracted war be tween the neighboring tribes One of these ewoteats la?t?*d nine days, at the cl jse of whieb tbe bodies of tbe captured dead were eaten. This cannibal custom prevails throughout the group 1 hey <lo not have a great least over these human bodies. u? is generally supposed to be the case, but the body is cut to pieces on the battle field, and earh warrior takes his piee*? an arm a joint, a rib, according to bis merit? r*i*es it on his gun over his shoulder, aad marches home, There he calls his relations together, and they devour tbe flesh?some cook ing it iu slices like pork, but most eat it rav Tbe motive which induces them to eat the bodie4 of their enemies is revenge; tbey feel that their revenge is not satisfied until they have tasted of tneir blood and flesh. When their hatred, anger, and revenge are at the highest point and their anemy lies dead before t'aern, then it c.iluminates in the fiendish act of eating human desb. and we may easily imagine tbe quivering heart that cringcs and grates be tween their bloody teeth, is tne sweetest morsel thata heathen warriorean Utste. Thiscannibal i?m is confined mostly to the older natives. The younger people agpear to be ashamed of tbe practice, and it is probable that before many years it will be extinct amotig the Maranes w This famoa? battle of Hanavere. Keketa tolls u*, lasted nine days. It consisted rather of skirmishes, though shots enough were fired to have killed a regiment. It is <jaite likely tbat these simple warriors dU their flriu' with eyes shut, as during the entirecontest. but one Of two persons were killed The heathen party <n this terrible scare entered into a compact wiib their dou^uerers, in which bostagea were riabarred, but tboee of the vannuisned ran ^?a/, \fr-m fear of being devoured, perhaps.) and returned to thelt tribe, wbo immediately, ta the m<^t secret m .nner, took "bag and bag gage" fr?ui tbe soil of their eneectors, aud made a b&st^ retreat to the Island of Tahuaka The victor* having gained more than they an ticipated. but just what tbey desired, took poe aession and divided tbe spoil. ThU contest was ao ancient lead. There were but two points of approach to the valley, one by the moautaiu paaa and oue by tbe sea. Never'be fore had the enemy been able to force this nar row paaa age?a fasinoa* of nature. They had been farced to staal through aa aperture worn by the wave* through the northern point ol the island from wheuee they discharged their flre-arm? upon their enemies and retreated. Il is bow said that the exile* are home-riak, thai they desire to return! and tbat thara are thoei afjhe conqueror* who would welcome them THE B ASCII K?SH ALL IT GO Oil OF fashion? The dressmakers say that the basque is pass ?g out of date that it is not *> much KHi ?ardid nTh l-\Dd th*t U wiI1 *>on be dis mn? g r C,re,e9 We ,h? first moment to enter our protest against this movement. W e gave our heart to the basque >ears ago We made the surrender publicly in these columns We recognised the eternal fitness of things in which the idea of the basque finds its basis. The trunk and chest of a woman have a distinct honor, and perform a peculiar office, in the economy of her existence They contain her heart, her breath, her life and the fountains of other life It is fit there fore. that this portion of the frame be dressed by itself, as it were?that it be honored as the se?t and centre of life. The skirt is another thing entirely. The limbs are used only for the purpose of locomotion, and they are simply to be ignored by graceful falls of material from the waist. Now we protest against this rubbing out of all. distinctions. There is just as much pro priety in attaching the hat to the neck of the dress as there is in fastening the skirt to the waist; and the whole idea of the old-fashioned gown can only be carried out by making the bonnet and shoes a part of it. If we are to lose the basque, let us go the whole figure fas ten everything together, jump into the re!iult and see how pretty we shall look. Let the gentlemen imitate the ladies, and revive the earlier patterns of breeching which filled all the offices of clothing between the neck and heels But such an operation as this would be impossible The c.*at is a sacred vestment. It is to man what the ba>>que should be to woman. I erhaps we shall be accused of meddling with that which does not particularly concern us. I?on t we have to pay for the dresses' Don t we have to sit with them evenings' Doe? not every caress of wife, or sister, or cousin, or sweetheart embrace this great ques tion of ba?ques or no basques ? Docs not the abandonment of the basque involve the aban donment of all those pleasant varieties of dress pr<?curahle by the simple change of skirts ' Is it none of our business,? For whom are these dresses made we should like to know ? \\ hose admiration aro they intended to excite ' What do ladies wear hand some dresses lor except for the purposo of pleasing " the brethren ?" We, therefore, take this early occasion to declare that we shall hold ouriNelve? bound to admire no woman who dis cards the basque, and adopts the idea of the incal bag. \\ e will not place our arm aroum the waist of any woman who may happen to be in danger of falling unless she wear a basque. W e are determined to frown down this threat ened change with all the power of a severely corrugated countenance. So, dressmakers be ware !?Spriujiel<l Republican. Plajis or Exrrpstonists.?Preparations cf sorts are making in many quarters for *11 sorts of sport next summer. First, there is a party which proposes to start in April to hunt lions, tigers, and other wild animals in Africa. It is to be composed of gentlemen of means and leisure in fcurope and America, who delight in Vie sports of the tented hunting ground. They go out fully equipped wiih tents, dogs, horses, and attendants. Their landing place and head quarters will be Algiers. Of this proposal we eannot speak very ap provingly; for if any one desires to hunt Hons and tigers, they can do it to much bettor ad vantage in India, tskere just now there is, be side. much other entertainment. A trip to Cal cutta, or better still, perhaps, Bombay, is just now one of the most interesting excursions imaginable and the most desirable to those who have time and means to make it comfortably. The second project is an excursion to the Mediterranean in the steamer Kricsson. leav 'D? New \ ork about the 1st May, and arriving about the 1st of August. According to the pro gramme. she will touch at Gibraltar, Malta. Alexandria. Jaffa (for Jerusalem.) Constanti nople. Athens and Naples, remaining at each place a sufficient time to enable the passengers to see the sights. The number of passengers is limited to ISO. and the fare of each, if adults, will be $75u. Other expenses of the voyage it is calculated, will raise the whole cost to about f900 This will do pretty well, but any one who has the time and ?900, one would think, could tra\el more to their taste by ordinary convey ances. But a still more attractive excursion isofferod to Americans, across the plains with the army to be sent to I'tah. * "Besides the journey in pleasant company at a delightful season of the year, they may witness the military operations of which Salt Lake is likely to be the theatre during the current year, and which may be memorable. Thearmy wiil begin to move about the ls'| >f May, and det tchuients will keep leer ing until late in June ?.V. Pott. The America* Horse-Tamer?The Ameri can horse-tamer has been busy during the week at the Royal Mews, and on Tuesday he com pletely mastered a wicked little mare of Lord Derby's, to the great delight of her nobleowner, who had hardly a quarter of an hour to wait before she was brought yut by the magician, as docile as a lumb no is an active looking man, of somewhat about 11 stone, and seems to ride and turn his pupils rather by an indication with bis hand than by touching the rein. It remains to be seen whether the secret can be applied impromptu in the hunting-field to in corrigible " pullers'" and ''rushers.'' Mr. Karey has determined to open a subscription list at ten guineas each for persons desirous if learning the now method, and when the sub wribersi amount to 500. classes will be iortned to receive the necessary instruction, (under certain conditions to be agreed to at the time of subscribing.) nt the riding-school of the Duke of Wellington, who has kindly placed the building at the disposal of Mr. Karey We have ourselves seen sufficient to be convinced of the humanity and efficaciousness of this mode of subjugating one of our most useful animals, and believe that very soon the plague ot a restive and unable horse will be unknown.
