And the music floats- down the dim Valley.

That to men, like the doves of the Deluge,

But far on the deep there are billows
That never shall break on the beach.
And I have heard songs in the silence
That never shall float in the speech ;
And I have dreams in the alley

A LEPERS' VILLAGE.
A Curious Totcn in the Sandicich Islands.

as follows a "Leper Village."
"mere is leprosy; in me Hawaiian

sent In tne lepers village,
"To visit the settlement on Moloka:,
which is about thirty mites east of Houo
lulu, we embark on in clipper-schooner
bound to windward touring down a cargo
of sugar from Lihaiua a towu ou the
inland of Maui, where Jepers may be seen
in its oue broad street
"After rollins: to stsiboard and rolling
to larboard all night )ong, the schooner
'heaves to' nt sunrise off the southern
coast of the i.-land, aiil we are set ashore
from a small boat iu the Utile harbor of

This is our programme. But before put
ting it into execution it is necessary to
purify society, a bleeding is accessary,
but a great, an extraordinary kue:, It is
necessary to cut off the rotten branches of
the social tree, iu order that it may grow
up lusty and vigorous. You now know

Whipping Tost. According to the
new fa: gird notions of humanity the
whipping post" is a relic of barbarism,
but we submit tbe question, whether it Is
more barbarous to keep a convict all win
tcr in a cold jail without smelling a fire,
or to try him b fore a magistrate and if
found culty, take him to the whipping
post and give him ' f r:y lashts, save one.
v c contend that there is a deal more bo
manity in the latter not to say auythiag
of the vast expeue that attaches to feed
in" convicts iu tbe jail at public etpense.
