TUipectin? the reported cruelty practiced to
wards the coolies and laltowrs on Stewart's Planta
tion, ct'pittl 1'V us a few weeks since from the San
Francisco Times, we learn that there is not the
slightest foundation whatever for the Matemeiit. The
storj- w:is pot up hy an ignonuit fellow who went to
Tahiti for employment, and on his return, disap
pointed anil vexed, narrated in San Francisco a yarn
which he had heard while at the Wand, the origini
tors of which were tried and sentenced to three years
imprisonment. Capt. AVood visite-1 the plantation
several times, ami assures us that a more orderly and
well regulated establishment was never stvn. The
1 coolies are engage-1 for five years, at four dollars per
; month, are provided with good houses, food and
j clothing, and required to wmk only nine hours a
j day. Out of work hours they cultivate small garden
I patehe-s where they raise for themselves the finest
j of vegetables. He never saw a finer or healthier set
of lalxrers anywhere. The regulations are strict,
; and no one is allowed to leave the plantation without
leave. All offenders are turned over to the local au-
! thonties for puntsliment, and any overseer who
, abuses his men, is dismiss -d instanter. In short it
j is a motlcl plantation, will regulated, and is now
, . , C. ft e ,
I paying a handsome profit. This refutation of the
j San li aneisco statement is due to those engaged in
j the plantation, and we trust the Timtt will copy it.

j If these industrial tendencies of the native women i

grass that grows on the hill sides; sugar cane bios- ;
soiiis; rice straw; a deep brown colored shrub called I
iicttiwn, which grows in highly elevated Fpots on the !
