haps not over three days old and of white parentage,
nnd from inquiries instituted it came to light that
it had been brought to the woman who claims
to be the wife of the colored man on Thursday even,
ing (Oct. 19) at Makawao, taken thence to Wailuku
and from there to Honolulu. The man says that Le
adopted the child. A rather strange if not suspicious

It is often remarked that the native possess no
genius for business and speculation. Mr. Nahlnu
biula gave a striking refutation of this before His

he had driven his wagon to th whaif and tber
started quite a novel, ingenious and highly profitable
enterprise, the only drawback to which was that th
balance sheet turned out in favor of a party who bad
not been at all considered to L entitled to com in
for a lion's share. Th new enterprise consisted in
swspning a lot of gold-fish with a Chinaman on
board the steamer for a lot of opium, which -was
carefully stowed away in th wagon, but when our
trader was inwardly rejoicing at the splendid tpec,
he was unceremoniously arrested, aud opium and

facturcd from cano this year is onl v nlout 1 ,520,
000 tons, fchowing a falling off of 234,000 tonis,
or a little more than thirteen per cent. Tbe rati,
mates for this year's bect root crop are not yet
completed, but a small incrcano is anticipated.
Our market, however, is not materially afloclcd
by tbc bect root crop of Europe, ns very little of
that production is imported into this country.
Cuba has boon and still is tho rrindf al source
of supply of raw enjar. We tako about tight j
per cent of that Island' produco of this article,
and there is no probability that our market
would be supplied nearly as cheaply from any
other quarter. The present high prices of raw
sugars da not attract to this country nny increas
ed imports from other uear-producing countries,
nor docs the condition of fore ign markets warrant
the assumption that wo can make good our dim
inibliing, supplies from Cuba, except at a tcry
material advance in present prices.
Thc decrease in tho sugar products ol Cuba is
principally owing to the war. Havana papers
estimate the deficiency this year compared with
last at atxmt twenty per cent in sugar and twenty
six in molasses. A great many sugar-producing
estates have been destroyed in the past year, una
others, which were permitted to reap Iheir harvest
under a promise of paying to the Cuban iovcm
merit the taxes hitherto paid to thc Sjianish, hnro
since been destroyed, in consequeneo of thn rro
inibc not being kfpt. It is said that fcincc Jan
uary last thc Cubans have destroyed on) hundred
and twenty estates in thc district comprised in
thc Vt'eatcrn Department of tbe Inland. As
many of these estates contributed their quota to
the product cf the last year, the decrease tho
coming year will iu all probability Ix even more
bcrioub. Another causo will operate t'j decrease
production Hitherto, as ono estate was destroy
ed thc field hands would be removed to others
further from the scat of war, and in this way the
aggregate of production waa in a lucaHirc sus
tained. At present, however, with the rinks at
tending tbc business and the high taxes imposed
by tho Government, the profits nre so small that
both tbe value of the land and hands has materi
ally depreciated. It is (dated that a good field
hand who was worth twelve hundred in 1808,
would bring at present not more than four hun
dred. The outlook for sugar from Cuba is not
therefore encouraging. Their is no immediate
proepect of the war being brought to a close.
The planters in the Western Department oT tbe
inland who were induced to break faith with thc
Cuban leaders in the matter of taxoa, on thc as
su ranee that the Spaniardd would drive tho
Cubans out, now find themselves at tlie mercy oi
these leaders, the Spaniards being unablo to pro
tect them. The tnitcd States therefore, while
still receiving large supplies from Cuba, will look
to other sources to make up tho deficiency. The
beet root crop can Le almost without limit in
creased, if the assurance is held out that the de
mand will be permanent. The amount received
from the Hawaiian Islands will doubtless be some
what increased, but the wholo pomiMo product of
these islands is but trifling compared to the an
nual importations of sugar and molft'icf into the
Vnitcd -State ,
