Gush. —There was a hi" divorce case n Levuka recently, over which the Fijian Attorney-General had to pay Li,ooo damages. The Fijian Argus felt it an in cumbent duty to say something, and this was its gorgeous utterance ; —This national sanctuary has been invaded, that venerable divinity has been violated, and its tenderest pledges torn from their shrine by the polluted rapine of a landless, heartless, prayerless, remorseless adulterer. With all the grossness of vice, a mean muffled, dastard incendiary, in lac silence of sleep and in the shades of midnight steals his Ephesian torch into the fane, which it was virtue to adore, and worse than sacrilege to have violated. With the serpent’s wile and the serpent’s wickedness, the adulterer stole into the Eden of domestic life and turned her virtue into pitch and out of her goodness made the net that should enmesh her, poisoning all that was pure, polluting all that was lovely, defying God, destroying man ; a demon in the disguise of virtue, a herald of hell in the paradise of innocence ; with just head enough to contrive crime but not enough heart to feel for the consequences. Holloway’s Pills. —These Pills arc more efficacious in strengthening a debilitated constitution than any other medicine in the world, fficaons of nervous habit of body, and all who are suffering from weak digestive organs, or whose health has become decayed by billions effections, disordered stomach, or liver complaints, should lose no time in giving these admirable Pills a fair trial. Cough, colds, asthma, or shortness of breath, are also within the range of the senative powers of tin's very remarkable medicine. The cures effected by these Pills are not superficial or temporary, but complete and permanent. They arc as mild they are efficacious, and may be given, witconfidence to delicate females and young children.—ADVT.
