As the 5e:ison approaches lest adapted for
planting cotton as well a.s other field crops, we
must again urge the cultivation of tliis staple, as
one of the producte Lest adapted to persons of
limited lu'-ans, and especially to the natives.
With simply a few aerc-9 of land leased or owned,
a plow and team, and a few implements, any
person can plant a crop which will be sure to
yield hint 7o to ,"100 per acre. Of course
this is not so profitable as a sugar plantation ;
but it mut be remembered that the latter re
quires an outlay of from $40,000 to $100,000
before the first dollar of income is received, and
frequently requires the owners to run into debt
and remain heavily involved for years. The
advantage of cotton growing is, that a native
or foreigner can raise on ten acres a crop worth
$St'0 to $1 ,000 without any great expenditure
except bis own labor, for one man can easily
take care of that number of acrei. Perhaps
thoe lemarks apply t rice with equ il prospect
of success, but the latter requires taro lnnd.
while the formei- grows on dry or pasture land.
The lust number ef the Government Gazttte
lias .i long rigmarole about the apathy ot the
people in sustaining the Agricultural Society.
The truth about it is, that eo long as the Agri
cultural Society well managed by such men
as Lee, Marshall, Makee, Wood and Wyllie,
the p'iblie did sustain it liberally and felt that
they received an ample reward for tluir gener
ous contributions. But when the name, eredit
iind funds of the Society served only to adorn pri
vate garden! and residences, the public felt it to
be useless, and veiy justly withheld its coopera
tion. Hud the funJj of the society been appro
priated in premiums to encourage the cultiva
tion of rice, wool, cotton, tapioca, as also the
manufacture of castor and other oils ; or had
the government offered a liberal bonus or pre
mium for the largest amount of any of these
articles raised by any native, as we suggested
some two years ag j, does any one doubt that
we should now have natives annually clipping
wool by the thousand pounds, or raising rice
and cotton by the ten thousand pounds? Had
a premium of $1,000 been offered in 1S04 or
l!'0o for the largest amount of paddy raised in
one year by any one native, of not lesa than
25,000 pounds ; or $1,000 to the grower of the
largest amount of wool or of ginned cotton of
not le?s than 10,000 pounds, produced by any
native, can any one doubt that there would have
been a mo.'-t healthy impetus given to each of
these industries ?
Our ideas government's as well as the so-calh-d
Agricultural Society's are altogether too
picaiunish in these matters. We can see thou
sands of dollars lying idle in the treasury, while
thousands more are drawing interest out of it,
we can nee foolish expenditures for many things,
but view with too little importance the real
springs that actuate our social progres-s. We
should copy the example set by our neighbors
in offering premiums. The Melbourne Parlia
ment some two or three years ago offered a pre
mium o f 1,000 for the first 100 bales of cotton
raised in that colon. And last year the Legis
lature of California, with that liberality which
ought to characterize every government, offered
a bounty of $3,000 for the first one hundred
acres of cotton, and another of $3,000 for the
first 100 bales of cotton of . not less than three
hundred pounds each. As a result of this gener
ous fostering of its industry, more than a thou
sand acres of cotton have been planted in that
State this year, and us a necessary consequence
a cotton mill is being erected at Alameda to
consume it. A little judicious help from the
State would have done fully as much in Hawaii
as it has in California.
A late California paper, in an interesting ar
ticle on cotton cultivation in that State, gives
some -taticlics relating to the cost and income
from cotton on tho farm of Jose Rubio of Los
Angeles. lie has fifty acres planted, and the
expense of preparing his ground, cost of seed
and cultivation for six months were $400, or
less than $10 per acre. He estimates the yield
at 550 pounds ginned cotton per acre, worth
in San Francisco, 25 cts. in gold per pound, or
$7,125 for the crop on his fifty acres. Con
sidering the small outlay for labor, this certainly
is an enormous profit, but any farmer here can
realize the same. The article further sa-s :
" It reijuires four months for cotton to attain its
vrowili. under the most favorable conditions. The
bloom cmes out in the morning, and is developed
by noon, when it is pure white : the next morn
ii'p ii is a clear pink, and falls otl Ly noon ol the
second day. The Idoom of the Sea 1-d.uul vaiieiy
i yellow at first. The seed should be thoroughly
vet with a biine made liy steeping stable manure
lit s.dt and w.uer : the M-eds are then dried with
ash.---, lime or planter, before planting. The rows
should be six te.t apart, and the phtnts three feet.
This tnu.-t depend ou the quality of (he soil and
probable -ize of the plants. The 1 arrows should
Vs. tis straight and narrow a-, possible, as the scraper
or bir-, can be inn clo.-er. diminishing the labor
of hoeing. The plant should be topped when it
attain- the height of six feet. In the Mississippi
aibl lied River plantations it frequently grows as
hit;!; a- ten feet, if not topped. From nine to ten
acres to the hand are usually cultivated, besides
the provision crop. The yield of the short staple
is from I.Vjij to ".50 pounds of seed cotton per
acre, l'o ;ir hundred pounds of ginned cotton is
called a bale, and about l.oOO pounds of Feed cot
ton will make a bale. Cotton has a tap-root gener
ally two or three feet in length, and needs constant
moisture and continuous sunlight. The climate
that suits it best is an atmosphere filled with moist
ure, w ithout clouds to obscure the sunlight ; and a
soil that can seize, hold and appropriate the heavy
dews and fogs. Any good land with a saline at
mosphere, will produce fine Sea Island cotton,
bur without it no soil will."
Mr. Xebeker, of the Mormon settlement at
Laie on this island, who has been engaged in
raising cotton, informs us that his land has pro
duced about 1200 pounds of Sea Island seed cot-
j ton per acre this year, and as it is still bearing,
the yield will be larger. One advantage of cot
ton culture at these island. is that, being a per
ennial, when it once begins bearing it will con
tinue to bear without stopping for years unless
the plant is cut down, and allowed to grow up
again, which should be done in the winter.
An enterprising native on this island, who has
ten acres of Sea Island cotton growing, gathered
from his farm up to October about 5,000 pounds
seed cotton, and thinks he will obtain 5.000
more before the close of this year, making ten
thousand pounds, which is the largest quantity
we have heard of any native producing during
the present year. His crop will be worth to
hiru at lea't $70, and thin without any instrue-
tion Imt soch as lii own liiaitM kn.wledge and
Taking into view the small capital required,
ve would urge both natives and forcijjticrs of
liuiited means to engage in cultivating cotton,
or, if they have ln-th wet and dry land, raise
rice and cotton. Both will pay well for the
labor expended, and both will grow anywhere
on the Islands. If cotton is raised in large
quantities, a gin should he purchased, and the
Cotton ginned and haled before being n-nt to
market. Any merchant will t: en buy it and
jvty a fair price for it. We recommend planting
the Sea Island variety, Kvause it is more val
uable, and the price iu England and America
is more likely to remain t-teady, for four or five
years at least, while that of the short staple, or
upland cotton, may decline.
e understand !
that Mr. Titcomb, of Kauai, intends to plant j
one hundred acres this season, and to follow (
it up as a business, confident that it will pay j
better than cane. Foreigners on Hawaii pro- j
jtjse to engage extensively in the cultivation ;
of cotton, as it has been sufficiently proved to j
be a paving crop, on a large scale. Should the '.
cultivation of it increao, as now appears likely, j
it will not be long before a cotton factory and
a paer mill will be needed here, to supply our '
Besides its fibre, cotton is valuable for it j
seeds, from which oil tun be made, good for va- ',
rious purp.ibco. Previous to r.nd during the rebel- j
lion, almost the only oil used by the farmers and j
country-people at the South was cotton-seed oil, i
which serves equally well for burning, for muchin- :
ery aud for a table oil, though for the latter pur- i
pose the seeds requite to be pressed without the :
hulls. When btraiued or refined, it is not but- i
passed for burning in lamps by tho ve:y best '
periii. - ;
We will supply the Sea Island cotton-seed

Persona engaged in the culture of it should

- ' Cotton Premiums.
Our readers may not be aware that the cost
of printing and writing papers, as well as the
cost of cotton rags, from which they are matte, de
pends very much on the price of cotton. We
are therefore directly interested in Becking to
increase the cultivation and eupply of cotton,
well knowing that every bale raised of any
kind will tend to reduce the cost of printing.
Owing to the increasing consumption of pa
per iu our printing establishment, amounting
to a thousand reams more or less, and from a
desire to furnish the best material for the man
ufacture of our supplies, (rags and shoddy not
being good enough for our patrons,) the pub
lisher of this paper projioses to take the initia
tive in the matter of premiums, and, with a
view of increasing the cultivation of cotton and
reducing expenses, offers the following premiums
to native Ilawaiians for the coming year :
Premiums for Cotton for 1800.
1. To any unlive who will plant ten or more acres
of Sea Island cotton, and produce, between
Jan. 1 and Dec. "1. 1SUC, ten thousand or
more pounds of good cotton, a gold premium
will be awarded of SlitH) 00
Should there be more than one claimant for
this premium, it will be awarded to him w hose
skill and industry have produced the largest
amount of cotton, in the period named.
2. For the second laigest amount raised by one
person. $100 00
3. For the third largest amount raised by one
person, - - - - - - 50 00
4. For the fourth largest amount raised by one
person, - $10 00
5. For the fifth largest aniouut raised by one
person, ------ $:'o 00
G. Tor the sixth largest amount raised bv one
person, ----- $v() 00
7. For the seventh largest amount raised by one
person. - - - - A COTTON GIN
8. For the eighth largest amount raised bv one
person, - - - A COTTON GIN
9. For the ninth largest ninouut raised by one
person, - - 4 bound vols. KL'OKOA
10. For the tenth largest amount raised by one
person, - 4 hound vols. KUOKOA
These premiums will be awarded in January,
18C7, and amount to :
In gold S440 00
Two cotton gins. - 80 00
Fight volumes Kuokoa "bound, $3 each, 24 00
A total of
5ft l OO
In ease of any dispute about the premiums
or the right of the claimants to receive them,
the decision will lie left to three disinterested
gentlemen, viz. : Jas. W. Austin, O. P. Judd
and Bobert Moflitt, Esq. The conditions which
govern these premium's will be announced here
after. It is said that practice is a more effective
argument lhan preaching. If the above reward-
.shall result in stirring up Ilawaiians
living on their own land, which now lieu almost
barren, and creates some emulation among them,
or helps, even in a omall degree, to reduce tho
price of printing-psiper, cotton cloth, and the
expenses of living, we shall be satisfied.
The Fpit-oopal General Convention is in session at
Philadelphia. But one Southern Bishop is present,
who was cordially received. The " encyclical" or
pastoral letter from Bishop Potter to the Episcopal
clergymen of Southern NeT York, is producing un
wonted fruit. Iostead of being accepted with en
forced submission, as in the days of Hobart and Mill
nor, the Low Church clergy are treating it with open
contempt, llev. S. II. Tyng, Jr., who is a chip of
the old block, invited Br. Storrs to preach in his pul
pit on Sibbatb evening, September 17tb, the vener
able Dr. TyDg reading the services in full canoni
cals." The Church Journal is highly indignant,
and announces that punishment must fjllow.
Taxes in England are profitable to the Government.

from which they ought to make C25.00'' gallons -of
