NEW YEAR’S DAY.
"The year is born ! the year is born!
The past is numbered with the dead!
What thoughts arise on New Year's morn!
What days—what friends— what hopes are fled!
New time arrives—new works to do—
New cares—new dangers are in view."
"The world's history commences a new chapter to-day," proclaimed The Friend, published in Honolulu, on the first day of 1856. "Individuals commence anew the journey of life. It is a fit season to break off old and vicious habits, and make good resolutions for the future."
