THE present Governor of Fiji, Mr. Des Voeux, who succeeded Sir Arthur Gordon, is, we believe, an Irishman by birth, but his ances- tors were Huguenots, whom persecution drove from France, and they found an asylum in Ireland. Partly in consequence of his descent, and partly on account of an affection I of the liver, engendered by the hot and unhealthy climate of St. Lucia, where he was located for a number of years, Mr. Des Voeux is quite as swarthy in face as any native Fijian. "When he arrived lirst at Levuka, and was entertained at dinner by one of the Government officials, the Indian man-servant of the latter expressed his indignation at the effrontery of a dark man having a seat at his master's table. He was not aware, apparently, that the gentleman of colour" was the new Governor.
