of stealing a half-dollar from a Chinaman, and on
tbe 9th of that month waa sent to the Reformatory
School for three years. Recently, hid sentence bar

informs us that he is cow in that city, having since
he was here traveled extensively in Formosa, British
India, the Dutch Islands of the East Indies, Abjssinia
and Egypt, in the execution of various scientific and
government commissions. ' He was in the expedi

amohair Goods. At Jamestown, N. Y., the firm
ft Hall. Taylor & Co. are larze manufacturers of
iiress goods, and have lately begun to manufacture
mohair cloth, from the wool of the Angora goat, bred
in California. A sample of the first lot thus made
waa received in California a month since, and is
highly spoken of, as comparing favorably with foreign
manufacture of the same material. Tbe cloth is
firm, and presents a very fine lustre, but it is thought
that with more experience high perfection will soon
be reached by the manufactures. With this success
will come an active demand for albino-mohair ..that
may be produced in California. This one firm alone
proposed to consume 200.00Q pounds of Angora
wool per annum, and doubtless other manufacturers
will go largely into the business. Some attention is
being paid to the raising of Angoras in these islands,
and we learn that the graded bloods are succeeding
well on Ilawaii and Maui.
A Dat of Accidents. Such was last Saturday,
when, at about the same time in the afternoon, a
series of collisions of carriages occurred on Fort
street, and vehicles were upset at either extremity of
the district. The accident on Fort street, was caused
by a carnage coming in contact with an express
wagon left carelessly standing without a driver, and
in the runaways and general smash which ensued
Mr. Alexander McKibbin, ton of the Doctor, was
thrown violently frpm his carriage and badly stunned
and bruised, but happily sustaining no serious in
juries, other pa rues wno were on tne street at tne
time had narrow escapes; bnt altogether, consider
able work was laid out in a very few minutes for
wagon and harness makers At Moanalua, at about
the same mdment, a buggy belonging to the hotel
containing a lady and gentleman and a child, rolled!
off an embankment and down a steep incline some!
fifteen or twenty feet, but without serious injury ta
the occupants; and a wagon full of passengers cap4
sized at rTaikiki, also without injuring any one.

' The following Is from the Alta's telegraphic dis
patch from Washington, dated March 4th : . V
In an editorial of the National Republican to-day
on the Hawaiian reciprocity, it is asserted that the
sugar refineries of San Francisco : have, made a
strong opposition to the last treaty. . But a careful
investigation has shown their objections based
npon a misrepresentation of the producing capacity
of the islands, which all writes agree in stating as
very small. Mr. Wells, who investigated the mat
ter ia 1867, puts the possible product of sugar,
under the most favorable circumstances, at S0.O00.
000 pounds, which is a large estimate, but would
then only amount to two-thirds ot tbe. annual im
portation of tbe port of San Francisco alone, while
others put it at much less than that. Tbe Govern
ment is in possession of all tbe information gathered
by Diplomatic Agents at the' Islands, and the
Senate will doubtless be furnished with correct
data. - - - ': -
Tbe treaty - probably will be the first business
for consideration. Its friends urge that It ta, in
every way, an exception to the general reciprocity
treaties, and bears no analogy to the Canadian, as
it provides a free market for American manufac
tures, in which tbe manufactures of other countries
will pay duties, thus protecting American manu
factures in Hawaii, and gives admission only for
Uhose products that do not compete with any eimi
har products of America. The sugar of Louisiana
can never reach the market of San Francisco. Thus,
ithe only sugar interests affected will be that of the
Dutch, British, or Spanish East Indies, which send
sugar to San Francisco.' Statistics of trade show
that these countries altogether don't buy as many
American goods as Hawaii. The figures in regard
to tbe treaty have been greatly overstated, but tbe
political importance of tne measure is fully appre

It is stated that the treaties with other nations

From the St. Louis Republican, f ebruary 26th
The Sugar Duties.
One of the features of Mr. Dawes' additional rev
eunne bill is a provision increasing the sngar tariff
twenty-five per cent. It ia one of the most objection
able features in a very objectionable measure. Tbe
tariff on sugar is generally thought to be intended as
a protection to our home sugar-growing interest in
the South; we cannot raise engar as cheaply in
Louisiana as it can be produced in Cuba, Porto $ieo
and other tropical regions; and, therefore, it is de
clared, we most lay the tariff on the article so as to
foster and protect the cultivation of it in Louisiana.
Tbe truth is, however, that the sugar duties are so
adjusted as to proteet, not tbe home sugar growers,
but another very different class of gentlemen the
home sugar refiners. There ia very little foreign
sugar that is used in a raw state; it ii too coarse and
too full of dirt to admit of its being used in that
state. It is imported to this country to be refined,
and it is imported almost exclusively by the refine
ries. While there is a moderate tariff of two to three
cents a pound laid on the raw sugar, there is a heavy
tariff of three and a half to five cents a pound. I&.id on
refined sugar the object of the 17 being to allow
tbe refineries to import raw sugar at moderate prices,
and to sell it when refined at high prices. The result
is that we do import and consume sn immense quan
tity of foreign sugar, bat it nearly all passes through
tbe refiners, and does not reach consumers till the
refiners have exacted and received a heavy tribute.
This is the way in which, according to the census of
1870, fifty-nine refining establishments in this conn
try, with a capital of $20,542,000, made a net profit
of $9,000,000. or over forty per cent. Sugar is an
article of universal consumption, and it is, for that
reason, a favorite subject fr taxation. It is perfectly
fair to tax it, and thus force tbe entire population ef
the country to contribute to tbe government reve
nues; bnt it is most unjust to so adjust the tax that
the country shall not only pay tribute to the govern
ment, but contribute, also, to an .interest that does
not seed nor deserve the favor.

From (be B. P. Daily Morning Call, March 7th
r.D A ,Tiie,Hawaiiao Treaty, j z
The treaty with Hawaii will probably be the moat
prominent subject of consideration before the Uuited
States Senate is eitra session, at Washington this
weekjJudging from tbe previous course of some of
tbe ablest debatora in the Senate like Morton in the
West, 'and Edmunds in the East there will be strong
opponents of --the treaty. : Morton, fays that now.
"when tli time bas come far the ett to develop
itself, and for the establishment cf our industries
ftpen gore' foufio,tiona. we are met yith tta iC Sane
Cry of free trade. In bis opposition to tbe Canadian
reciprocity treaty, this Senator assured the whole
Northwest that it had nothing to gain by the adop
tion of such a treaty. Edmunds, of Vermont, the
great opponent of free trade, said the country's re
cuperation from lha effects of the pAnie was largely
due to the protective tariff, and he will doubtleas
oppose tha Hawaiian ireaty.. The opponents of these
men on tbe tariff question will antagonize the treaty
for other reasons;. Thfc Hon. David A. Wells, of Nor
wich. Connecticut, the free trade anoBtle. at the
request ef tbe Senator Jones,-of Nevada, has given a
written opinion respecting the bearing of this pro
posed treaty upon the revenues and commerce of the
country, in which he argues' that the treaty would
give a subsidy of $500,000" a year to twenty-five
Amerioan plantation owners in the Sandwich Islands,
and that annexation of these Islands would be de
ferred by it Mr. Wells, w lid presided at tbe recent
Democratic Nominatibg Convention of Connecticut,
at which he made a trenchant speech in favor of the
doctrine of taxation for revenue only, says the only
element of importance in this treaty is sugar, "ihe
duties upon ' the importation of which artiole now
constitute. xbe ..largest and most reliable source of
gold revenue under our customs." He gives the
estimated annual sugar product of the , Islands, as
80J0O0.OOO pounds, " moat of which finds its way to
the Uuited Btatea." Bat he says the annual subsidy
which the free, admission of (bis would be equivalent
to voting tbe twenty-five American planters, wonld
be increased from 500,000 to at leaet 81,000,000
before' the expiration of seven years, through . the
temptation of increased profits Sn tbe sugar business.
The New York Timet, io opposing this treaty, throws
out a hint that as tbe sugar refineries of San Fran
cisco draw their chief supply from Hawaii, it is barely
possible that the proposed treaty,' favoring the im
portation free of duty, is simply' 4" little business
devioe of the refineries. Tbe truth of this supposi
tion has, of course, been negatived by the letter sent
ten days ago by these refineries to tbe Congressional
delegation pf the Paeifia coast at Washington, giving
their reasons why tbe treaty snouid not receive the
sanction of tbe Senate. They, say the Islands are
capable of producing annually at least 150,000,000
pounds of an gar, or 81,000,000 pounds more than
the entire consumption of tbe Pacific coast. But aa
they say the coast would take but 80,000,000 pounds,
this would leave 120,000,000 pounds to be shipped
elsewhere. But our San Francisco merchants take
quite a different view of this treaty, both from that
of the refiners and from Mr. Wells. A half a hun
dred firms, whose names were given in yesterday's
Call; have signed a communication to Senators
Sargent and Booth, requesting their support of tbe
treaty... They say if the treaty be ratified, it will
give the Doited States a foot ho 'd in Ilawaii, which
will prevent any. other nation from controlling those
Islands; and that the benefits of releasing duties on
these Islands products will eon re to consumers here
as well as to tbe planters its Hawaii, who are mostly
Americana. If the merchants have any stocks of
sugars on hand, they are arguing against their inter
ests, if the doctrine is true that the price of sugar to
the American consumer will be reduced. Mr. Wells
argues that it will 'not be reduced. Congress has
just been legislating against tbe interests of consum
ers of sugar in the passage of tbe new tariff bill, and
in favor of individual holders of this commodity. As
an illustration cf the effect of tbe sugar duty, it ia
stated that a single establishment in St Louis would
gain about $46,000 by tbe advance of a quarter of a
cent per pound in the value of sugar which that firm
has now on hand.
THE LABOR TRAFFIC IN THE PACIFIC.
In tbe Weekly fret of Canterbury, New Zea
land, we find an interesting account of a public
meeting convened in that city during tbe past
month, for the purpose of listening to the reports
of Clergymen recently returned from the Church
Mission of Melanesia. It will be remembered
that tbe founder of that Mission was the lamented
Bishop Patteson, who fell a martyr to his eeal
some two years since. The natives on some of
the islands of Melanesia are perhaps the most
savage on the face of the globe, but yet they have
been proved by tbe Mission to be capable of being
taught. The "labor trade," however, was stated
by tbe missionaries to have been a constant source
of anxiety and a great hirdrance to their work;
and those of the natives who went away as labor
ers and returned from "civilization," came back
greater savages than when they left.
One speaker at the abuve mentioned meeting
(the Rct, Mr. Jackson boldly epoke of "the
slave traffic which was carried on under the guise
of a labor trade, not only in Melanesia, but
throughout the Pacific Islands."" We append a
summary of his remarks, whereby it appears that
in spite of tbe efforts of tbe British Government
through its cruifeers, the iniquities of tbe labor
traffic still continue :
"The rev speaker read a letter he had received
from the P,ev. Mr. Selwyn, relating a cage of kidnap
ping that had recently come to hia knowledge; also,
from the Rev. Mr.'Codriogton, who had learnt of a
case of kidnapping under the guise ef labor. It was
often the case that while one of II. M.'s ships was at
one side of the island a slaver was at the other side.
The natives did not understand the meaning of a
three years' engagement, as they could not look so
far ahead. And complaints had been made to him
that when these men had been taken to Fiji, they
would not work. -The fact was, that in their own
country they were not, used nor required to work, or
to restraint; and when compelled to work under au
thority they naturally "demurred. A respectable
planter had told bim in Fiji that tbey (the planter)
were compelled to use the lash pretty freely and that
was what was sailed fr labor. He had heard of
horrible atrocities committed upon the natives by
overseers and planters in Fiji, and when any of tne
men did return to their 'native place, they could
hardly bkme. them &r being filled with a desire for
revenge upon the whole race of white men. He
eould ipeak with certainty of the atrreliiee f rtifl
la FijT, but of the natives taken to 4"iwti!ard be
could net speak as positively, but wbm iir. Codring
t4n vrpnt there to enquire Into Ibelr 'ttvatneat. every
obetaele was courteously 1 Taeed in his way. and tbe
frw natives he via eaaXil to sprak to tuM bim, la
tbe tPtNBcef a J erfcear, teat lv had 00 idea
where they were being taken t. About three eat of
every 100 taken away returned, and those who did
were thoroughly detnvralived tbrrtsgW contact with
Ctviliiation. Buys, girl. t.M , and sm tn who
could work were cairied away, and ba a native
vrss returned to hia island be fouod bia native vil'.sp

vilTSge, Ulil t rile might be at war wt b it, ha wer.t
o4 to lha ecl baart-fcrt t ar prepared to be
taken anvwheie. Ia confirmation f ibis Mr Jack-
sen read a letter received by hi at frt.in a native boy
who bad been returned to hia island, at tbe time
fruitful and populous, to find it desolated aed with
out vestige of cultivation When taken away the

C at vie avt3i. tkftioaalrrs Ju Baotaeat if vlaj i?
tiveness, after this treatment, could tbey be blamed f
Tbey could not sufficiently diacriminats that when
avenging themselves it waa on Innocent men. Mr.
Jackal instanced eM where an tree Vollock bad
been stolen from a boat, and the captain of tbe v easel
was about to flog a native bo was on biard tor tbe
theft of others; and also a captain of a mao-cf-war,

under their protection, and to put an end to Ibe slave

any of those present."
Fijian ProipecU. 3
There are a good many New Zealanders (says the
Auckland Star) who east lcngleg tocis towards Fiji.
To the consideration of such we would comrornd the
following extract from the letter of a resident in
Levuka : " Should there" be a great ruah of people
here, as many persons think there will be, numbers
of new arrivals will find themselves grievously dis
appointed. There is not, nor is there likely to be for
a long time to come, any kind of employment for
tnecliaalcs And artisan ft nVre hre'notiadrl or man
ufacture carried on, cr likely to be, at present.
Provisions are excessively acarc ami dear; bouse
rent is very high, and all tbe available land for
budding purposes in and about Levuka, is already
in the hands of private Individuals, who will not sell
except at enormously high prices, or let only on
aberf building leasee at heavy ground rental; and as
there is no brick or stone fit for build!Bg larposes,
there is no work, or very little to' be obtained for
either masons or bricklayers. There are some
bricks now makingat the IUwa tat the clay used Is
by no means of good quality, being lo tnuob impreg
nated with mundic, which bursts into bulbs and
hofes during tbe process of burning, so that tbe
bricks are of no great value, and not liksly to be of
a lasting character."
That "Anglo-Saxon Alliance.'
The suggestion made by W. E. Forster, the dis
tinguished English statesman ia hie speech at' the
Union League Club reception in the city of New
l'oik, has something Vast and Imposing in it, which
appeals powerfully to the imagination. The Idea of
a great Anglo-Saxon : alliance 1 or confederation be
tween Great Britain, tbe United Slates and all the
English-speaking peoples on the face of the globe may
be Utopian and incapable of realization, but Is never
theless grand In onceptJoaVarHicoalJ it be actually
consummated in such a way as to secure harmony of
feeling and co-operation cf action among all the
members, would probably prove a blessing to the
world. ' When Mr. Forster delivered bis address he
could hardly have expected that the suggestion thus
thrown nt en' airocla! oecBsioD,?iii' an apparently
off-hand manner, would call fortlj such general eom
tner4..pd .'criticiffta m it W lean the sui:t of In
the press on both sides, of the Atlantie. And if It
were not for the faot that the speaker enjoys the rep
utation of being one f the most nractioal jpf Jyighah
men, and of fitly representing that " passion for
utility " which Emerson says ia the bias of the
nation; Lis remarks 4a fgaf tw " grand allU

person would have commanded. i And whether or
not such an alliance 1 Yd be regarded. In view of 'all
tbe difficulties in the way; as a practical thing, it la
at any rate gratifying lo observe in bow friendly and
cordial a spirit the matter has been diacuaeed by
leading journals ef both countries. The London
Timet, the Ttltgrapk and tbe W'tw speak favorably
of the project Tbe Spectator, alludes to it in the
same spirit, but is incl;ned to doubt its feasibility.
Tbe Standard, m Tory ;orgai, and fhtXaturJaf He.
view tbrow eold ' water upon it, as might have been
expected the latter, of courae, indulging io some
characteristic sneers both at the United, States and
Mr Forster. ' The Cronemfrf thinks" that a serious
obstacle to any such project is to be found io the fact
that the United States favors a protective policy, and
it also expresses the Opinion that, even if practicable,
it would be dangerous and.kauce usesirable. and
An Anglo-Saxon League wonld establish a eosmo
politaa Jyrappy. No, sace is fit. to. be rested with
irresponsible And uncontrolled power over other and
weaker races; least above all a race like euv wn,
which, in spite of all its splendid qualities, Is, in its
relation to type cf humanity ' which dtfler from It,
coarse, domineering, and often cruel.
On this side of. the water the proposed Leagoe "
has for obvious reasons met with leas favor, though
it has been spoken of In" terms of approval by the
New Tork Tribune and Mr. Bryant's ttnng Pott.
The fact U, it la' nai obvious what advantages the
Unite! States could derive from such an alliance.
Isolate! m we are from the neighborhood of other
great powers, we are equal to any emergency that is
likely to arise, and we experience no need of being
strengthened from abroad. England, on the other
hand, perplexed by grave domestic problems if not
actually menaeed by domestic perils, and hampered
by her dependenciesmight feel it for bcr interest to
enter into such an arrangement. .Complications are
liable to ariae at any' moment which wit! endanger
her Eastern possessions or embroil her with her con
tinental neighbors. Upon tbe whole, we are Inclined
to agree with the Economist, that the project is not
feasible, and that so far as the United States ate eon
cerned it is not desirable. Let us cultivate close
friendly relation with England, and avoid by all
honorable means a rupture with her as one cf the
greatest calamities that could befall either nation.
But anything that could be properly termed a
" league," or an alliance " anything beyond an
Implied and unwritten good understanding Ii we
feel confident, quite out of the question ia tbe present
condition of human affairs. S. F, Ckraniel.
