and often very lieggars. Time is money, said

in order to bring about, in a shorter way, the results
at which they are aiming. By this means, it seerus,
they luve failed ct their object, and brought depop
ulation and ruin upon tlie islands. No wonder the
London Quarterly thinks that something more auJ
diflerent must be done to save the people.
Now what are the real faets ? We venture to
tssert that no body of Christian missionaries, cf
whatever denomination, placed in the same circum
stances, would have interfered less in making laws
and regulating state affairs, than the Protestant
missionaries in these islands; and for the very goi.J
reason, that no body of Christians, by principle and
training, are mure opposed to the uniou of church
The rule of the former chiefs of these islands waj
despotic, but patriarchal. It is not strange, there
fore, that these chiefs, when they embraced tli
Christian religion find adopted the moral principle!
of the Uible, should sometimes attempt to enforce
these principles by their own authority, much in the
manner of a father of a family rather than a ruler if
a nation. This, of course, would eive oflense n

j The true state of the case is, the clergymen of the
i mission, almost without exception, have continued tc
preach the gospel to the masses, to translate the
Ilible and other books, to teach parents and children,
; male and female, in the house and by the way, to
i UlCU,c'l,e in-Justry, p:tty and morality upon all, t j

Oru New Year's wish, thoui-li warm, is briefly told :
May the " Xew Year" be happier than tie- " 1 M ;"
May Sot lies of Pkaok succeed to those of lilo.xl ;
May Commerce spread her white wins o'er the Flood ;
May t..sl Men live: but every Tyrant Knave,
Who rules to curse his Country, litid a Oravo !
May all, who Tli.h Tin: Suit, on hill or plain,
Heap rich Reward, of hitnUreJ Jtl in nain ;
And, as the Copious l'.ain ."rom Heaven doth fall,
So let the Heart's rich Oratitude arise from all ;
And, as our Years, with lHessines freighted, fly,.
So let our tlratitude be sent on High :
For as these lUe.-sines are the seed that's jriven,
May we so Plant that we may Heap iu Heaven !
Plantation Salh. The sugar plantation of C
Titcomb, 11-sq , at Ilaualei, Kauai, was last week
purchased at private sale by His Excellency R. C.
Wyllie for the sum of S 2'J ,000, one half on time.
The plantation comprises some 700 acres of land,
j about half of which is suited to cane culture, and
j about 100 acres ard now planted with cane. The sale
i embraces only the land and buildings, the stock aud
i other movable effects bcim? reserved. The nurrdinsor
l3 tstrt.uiely fortuI1ate in securing this valuable
addition to his estate, which now constitutes, per-
haps, the finest Bite for a sugar plantation to be
fouud any where on these islands. The soil is as
rich as it is possible to make it, and produces cane
which astonishes the sugar boilers from older coun
tries. Then the facilities for carrying ou the estate
economically by shipping ofT the produce and other
freight to and from the will by means of tha Ilaualei
stream, are supeiior to any possessed by other plan-
I tations. Mr. vine has just received from Scotland
lhe shiP Galilei, a very large and powerful mill.
manufactured for him by .Messrs. Mirrlces & Tait, of
don llxhibitiou, has been much commented on by the
Kngiish paper?. This mill for the Hana'ei Planta
tion is planned on a scale for manufacturing tmhi
tons of suzar per diem, or 2500 jer annum, should
the capacity of the estate ever require it, i thing
not at all unlikely, if the yield should turn out four
or five tons per acre, as is anticipated. With good
management, this may in the course of a few yens
become the largest and most profitable sugar planta
tion in the group, and afford iudustry not only to
hundreds of natives but to many foreign artisms.

Tatioca. A correspondent cn Kauai informs us
that tat ioca has been successfully raised at Koloa
during the past year, and as the quality of the
article has been proved to be better than the import
ed, lie expresses the hope that it may soon be
a i led to our list of exports. Tapioca is a prepara
tion manufactured from the root of the yucn, in the
same manner as arrowroot, and is grown mostly in
Central America, where it is indigenous. It has
been planted here in Honolulu, and also on Hawaii,
as noticed in this paper some years since; but
whether it can be raised and manufactured so as to
make it profitable for export or even for home con
sumption, is an experiment we should like to 6ee
