The sun id" May reminds us now by sending some
f i: hottest ravs upon our "many hilled isle of
the iice.tn." "that spring js g.ne and sunnm-r time
is cimi::j." Ve have had some seorching days,
tliut have changed the green of mountain sides and
plains into lighter tints, notwithstanding there have

lieneiicial to vegetation in general and to the young
cane, the planters hope, in partioular. Some poo-

That annual curse of our islands, have committed
their usual depredations, and ou some plantations
stripped the y oung cane of its leaves. At Maka--,i.
from out of the small quantity of wheat that
lias been sewn, some fields have sutTerod severely
and but few fk'.ds look promising. Wheat culture
b.'oom- s less wii'.i every year. It is to le regret
ted that in the indu-try of wheat, larmrs find so lit
tle encouragement. Sugar is and wil always re
main the n!- crop for export, till the rich lands
of the ll tb akala are in possession of a more indus
trious and numerous population. There is room
tor many thousands of small fanners, and a climate
an l s;il" genial for a variety of products. Of
I learn that the liana plantation is still grinding
and will continue some six or t ight weeks longer.
The high winds that swept some months ago over
the inlands, did much damage, but the crop turns
out nevertheless tolerably fair. A larger mill and
better facilities for taking elf the crop more rapidly
would greatly benefit his plantation. At the East
Maui plantation ten natives are at work to plant
each t -a acres of can", to bo ground on shares at
the plantation mill. The llobron plantation, which
had stopped grinding lor a short time, to reset the
trai;). is at work again. The mill of Eugene I!al A
(o. is grinding still, and may continue Air some
time. The Wailuku plantation mill has stopped,
and are adding to the h-ght of their chimney. The
Wi hoe plantation has discontinued grinding, hav
ing finished the present crop. At Waikapu. the
mill keeps steadily at work. Mr. James Louzada,
the pioneer of the" Wailuku mountains and its valu
able sugar enterprises, has returned from a tour to
the United States, having renewed a long lease of
life and bids lair to see Wailuku, which owes to
him its present and prospective prosperity, rise
into a town of importance. At I lupalakua. the
mill has taken a resting spell and may not start
again for some six or eight weeks. Some time ngj
there happened one of the most singular and per
haps unique instances of
Thai would puzzle a conclave of the most learned
chemists. It appears that part of the molasses
leaking out of the underground cistern had been
absorbed by the surrounding ground, composed, as
the soil of tin? llaleakala is in general, of volcanic
cinders, earth and lava stones. From some im
knotvn cause the intermixture of the different ele
ments created a combustion, a kind of infantile
i volcano, under the snurar house. A creat degree
of Leat had been observed a long time previous,
but when the cistern was opened and the wall
broken down, a dense column of smoke issued,
stones were found to be burning hot. the earth
bin ii",l ii, something like red ashes and the danger
to lie considerable. A plentiful supply of water
thrown into the place of danger by a liue of labor
ers passing baskets from baud to hand soon quench
ed this novel sort of contlagration in the bowels of
the earth. Could any means be devised to safely
pack this little monster right side up, it might have
been worth the while to have sent it to the cart; of
the Minister of the Interior to be forwarded to the
French exhibition. Hawaii nei would have been
certain of a gold medal. A new source of vexa
tion to sugar planters, and every body else has
arisen from the
Scarcity of Food
or their laborers. A bundle of jxiiui that usually
sells for twenty-five cents is at present valued at
fifty cents, and scarce at that. Beef also has gone
up very rapidly in price, and costs eight cents a
pound. A crisis in poi is not to be wondered at,
and might have been expected, while the young
men are at work on the plantations and the old are
dying, and while kalo-patches that have yielded a
crop run waste for want of labor, or are planted
with sugar cane to bo ground on shares. It will
not be long before natives will have to learn to
live like the 4-haoles, " a change that I think will
lie beneficial in the long run to both parties. laborer
afvwell as planter. o mote it be.
Kauai, May 18, 18CG.
Jlt:. Lnrroit l
Itcnr Sir : 1 have seen in a late
number of the O'tzctle a letter from Dr. Ilillebrand,
in which he says it is his purpose to introduce
snakes into these Islands, as an antidote against
the destruction of rice by rats. In order to allay
any unpleasant excitement or prejudice the public
may have against their introduction, lm says they
w ill not consist of the kinds w hich are venomous.
New. Mr. IMitor, I for fine earnestly protest
against the introduction of any kind of snakes
whatever. Next to the introduction of the incar
nate Old Serpent himself, I should deprecate that
of any kind of snakes.
A snake is a .sf. c. whether venomous or not ;
and there is a deadly hate against it implanted by
the Creator in the human breast, which has existed
ever since the Fall, and ever will exist toward all
Now. if they are brought here, and shall increase,
as no doubt our favorable climate will cause them
to do filling our marshes, forests and jungles, in
festing our premises, and crawling into our houses
horror of horrors ! then farewell, a long farewell
to all happiness and comfort! for strangers I am
sure they will be to these Islands. No more pic
nic parties no more rambling abroad for pleasure !
As Jericho was straitly shut up because of the

I have always considered that we are highly
privileged in having no snakes of any kind ; and
though venomous snakes can do more hurt than
those called innocuous, yet all are nearly alike re
pulsive : and the good it is claimed they will do,

What is the loss of a litlie rice compared with the
sacrifice of people's comfort? And cannot ti.e rats

whether they can or not. is it right that the pecuni
ary interests of a handful of rice producers should
be made paramount to those of the great mass of
the population? Ought not the majority to be con
sulted and their wishes respected?

none but rh-vrr snakes; and so also was it his pur

entailed upon their inhabitants, a great calamity
and curse: and I think the Legislative Assembly
should take such immediate action on the subject
as will put an effectual stop to their introduction.
We never supposed the Doctor was really seri

sane man would ever attempt to introduce the
cursed reptiles into any country where they do not
exist, or the attempt would lie speedily visited by
public retribution. Kr.
