The recent Bale of -cnool-l iad at Waikipu, near
the mill of James Louziia, E-.j , which realized i&0
per acre, shows the nd vance 'h it h as taken place in
real estate in that neighborhood within the past
twelve-month. This land lould have been, or one of
ahr.'it the sime size near it, wi? pnrtthased some
eighteen or twenty months since for So'X), or about
$'2 per acre. The ancestral lots and k ilo patches,
which Lave not lieen secured ere this, will now take
th-ir complexion, as to price, from this figure, and I
Tcnfure to say that SI 00 per acre fir quite a number
of acrea of suitable cane-land would not Le long Cnd
ir.g a purchaser. One of the rusti cus-seg. in a letter

Wailuka end Its People.
I Lvl the pleisure, some three week9 since, of
traveling over Wailuku aud Waikapu way, and in
company with Mr. Langford, the miller, who turns
oat the splendid Wailuku flour, which tempts the
palates of your lovers of good cheer when it is made
up into hot caked of a morning, I rode over the
fields of Wailuku, Waiehu anl Waihee. On the
right-han I side of the roal from Waikapu to the
church at Wailuku, about opposite the large cactus
enclosnre belonging to TL Bailey, Esq., there is a
fine lot of about 0 acres, 1 should j idge, fenced in,
cJ under cultivation. It belongs to the Rev. Mr.
Alexander, an 1 extends from the road to the sanL
hills. To one nccutomc-d, like the writer, to the
wi le space between the rows of cane, say seven feet,
which prevails on the Makce and Makawao planta
tions, the close contizuify of the rows in this piece
appears strange, but the owner tells me that it is not
any closer than experience has showo tbat the land
will 1-eir. The space between Lis rows is only three
to three and a half feet. And here, ti pissa it, let
me pay a just and deserved tribute to this worthy
pa?tcr : It bas been tny lot to Lave wandered for the
p it twenty years in nearly every portion of the
habitable g'' be, and during my peregrinations have
wen some of human nattir." I have never gone
so fir into Sumatra ns Mr. Walter Gibson, only upon
the threshold, and Live yet to see his princely pan
jangs. In these my peregrinations, I have rarely met a
man who, I thought, was doing nmre good in a quiet
wir than Mr. Alexin Lr. A native of Kentucky, he
hn all the g)-aheada:iveness of a citizen of the State

ples-ire t be iti his society and be is one of those
who have the h ippy f ic alty of conveying information

on the sugar question, and sweetened up '.as high as
a burnt buot." If ail the missionaries were like him,

kt i- cultivating, and down the ro.a 1 from Havek 'st,
the Catholic priest has a nice field of cane. Innu
merable little patches here and there, have sprung
tip. sin-'e I last visited Wailuku and every one was
busy with an implement of husbandry, doing some
thing. Across the river, the company, of which J.
Fu'Ier, Esq., is the managing resident owner, were
bard at work, and the w ly the ploughs and oxen
were doing duty was a caution to field mice. They
have 130 acres, so I understand, at present ploughed.

pueo in Kula and perhaps even beyond, about twelve
miles lot g by an average wid'h of one mile, perhaps
more 70SO acres. But over a part of this, the sup
ply cf water will always be scanty. There is how
ever in this titdt a goml chance for two and perhaps
three more sugar mills than it now owns.
" In the vic:ni'y of Ulunal tkua there are about
?2t00 acres of sood cane land
" A belt of cane 1 md commences at the termina- t
tion of the great pilisot Kaupo, and extern

or equivalent to that 51l!0 ncies.
" The wafer taro or rice lan 1 from Hamakualoa

dry side of Kaupo, a rerion about forty miles long,
may le about 150') acres in actual cultivation. But
I suppf.se some 4'M.V) acres may tie cultivated to water.
" There m:iy be 1000 acres of kalo or rice land on
West Maui, froru Kahakuloa nround by Lahaina to
Papalaau, perhaps 1'0. The cane land for the
same region, or land on which good cane might be
grown, inny be about tJoOO acres. In nrrtny of the
places included in the above estimate, although cane
i might be grown, it would be hardly feasible to estab
lish a plantation.
There are then by this estimate -G.C10 acres of
cane and rice lands on the Isl ind of Maui. Allowing
J.j.Oin) acres in round numbers, and capable of pro
ducing one an l a quarter tons to the acre per annum,
we have 5I0 tons of sugar or d2,0r0,090 pounds.
The L'nifed States naval allow ince per man is two
ounces ;,cr diem, and estimating that he consumes in
bonbons, cand'es, and the thousand and one articles
which tempt his t-1-oe on shore, four ounces per

The riRTL A lab vma am the British Govekx
mknt. The latest news by telegraph gives the
Livtrp-il Jour mil of C'jwucrce as authority for
saying that the British Government has issued
orders that the .lla'-ana be warned off from all
British ports, and notice given that if any more
British property is destroyed, the Government will at
(nee tike steps to destroy l.er; all cf which the
Shii"Z G tziHe denies. However that may be, it
inav be set down as a fixel fact that the British
Government is becoming uneasy Concerning the
pirate. And why ? Because, on November S, ISt'J,
Secretary Seward wrote to Minister Adams, saying :
"The telegraph announces the destruction if an
other half dozen American vessels on the high seas
by ti e steamer "'.". The President is obliged to re
gard these destructions as l-ting mad? by British
.vm ' ;, t a ro.'.!'.Vi of the l.iw f nations, after re
peated and ample notice, warning and remonstrances
had been given by you to the British Government.
It is presumed that you have already brought the
toil j.'Ct in that light to the notice of Her Majesty's
Government. The legal froots in support of ii clitirn
for indemnity u-ill be collected and transmitted to you
us sj-eedily as 's$ilde.
The Removal of MlClei.lax. It will be remem
lerel, says Mr. Siuu-ntoii of the Bulletin, that
McCiellan was displaced because he would not bring
on a battle when the Washington authorities deemed
it advisable. He was voted " too slow." Well,
what is the result ? Two months have elipsed, the
military position has changed, but our army to-d ly
is acknowledged to be iu worse condition compara
tively for advance than it was before Gen. Burnside
took command. Thus again the Government in
refusing to " make haste slowly," has lost us valua
ble t i iii-"- It is worthy, too, of note that the respeu
Mi.bity of Burnside's delay rests with the Quarter
master's Department just where McCiellan saw the
cause-1 that prevented his own advance from the line
of the Potomac. But I cannot at this time dis
cuss, ad it deserves, the causes of McCiellan' last
removal, or its policy. His friends have a strong
argument iu his behalf, in the fact that .Secretaries
Seward and Blair sustained him to the last, voting
against bis removal even at the Cabinet meeting
which decided the question. It is to be feared that
thecouutry will yet see the impolicy of the change,
although nobody expects Burnside to prove himself
the cousumraite ass that Pope proved to be when at
the head of the Potomac army. Burnside and
McCiellan contiuue the best of friends; and the for
mer has never failed to express his earnest Conviction
that McCiellan was by far the best man for the man
agement of our armies iu the field.
