JVEDNESIUY, JULY 20, 1882.
WEST INDIA NEOHOES.
The stuU'iiiL'iit luts more thau once
been miido in our hcaiing by persons
who have refilled in the West Iudia
, 'Islands, that if proper government
measures were undertuk'.n, a supply
of desir.iblo laborers could he obtain
ed in Unit dhection for our agricul
turists ; mid the Island of Jamaica
y.t.s particulaily spoken of, where
the colored population were leady
to emigrate. We liavo iceently re
eeied several copies of newspapers
piinted nt Kingston, Jamaica, in
which we find fiequcut allusions to
paitiea of laborers leaving that
Island for engagements abroad.
One paragraph says that 31. do Lcs
ecps will tequirc 8,000 men to woik
on the Panama Canal, and assures
the Canal Company that they " can
find all the laborers rcquiied, from
the Islands, at very reasonable
rates." Again, we quote "Another
natch of laborers arc now getting
ready to proceed to Tampico,
Mexico ;" " Seventy Jamaica labor
ers eainc back from Colon by the
mail steamer;" " One hundred and
thieo deck passengers left on the fith
for Colon, and ten lnboierb engaged
for the Canal Company. The labor
ers arc the last of a batch of 500
contiaotcd for by the Company."
These West India negroes, natives
of a tropical climate and brought up
as tillers of the soil, would bo just
the men for our plantation work.
One of them would do more, and
better woik in a day than four or
EESTBICTION ON CHINESE.

and referred to a special committee
TO UF.STKICT Till: IMMIRItATIO.V

AsoTiinu Giant Powdek Houston.
Wo hear from Haiku, Maui, that
on the 5th instant four natives went
fishing at that place, with giant pow
der. One of them had thrown a
cartridge which, exploding, had
killed a lot of fish. One of the men
leaped from the canoe to secure
these, and just as he did so, another
of tho men throw another cartridge,
which also exploded while the first
man was in the water. Ho soon got on
the canoe again, apparently not in
jui cd. On reaching the shore, how
ever, ho lay down and seemed to be
faint. Soon he began to vomit
moon, sum in a iew moments ex
pired. Doubtless tho concussion
iiipiureu a uioou-vessei. will our
legislators awake to tho necessity of
something being done to put a stop
to these giant powder horrors?
, Cum: Koit Blight. The so-called
blight on orange and coffee trees, is
declared by those who have made it
a study to bo duo to an insect gener
ally known under the name of Para
site. Mr. J. II Bostwick,' of New
York, one of tho U. S. Inspectors of
Customs, in his annual report on the
foreign green fruit trade of that
port, has the following: "The
great value of tiic means offered to
tho public by the writer for the
effectual extermination of the Para
site, and published in his annual
fruit export for 1879, would soon be
made manifest by a faithful applica
tion of tho means, viz., the thorough
scouring of tho bodies and larger
limbs of the fruit trees with common
soft soap and sharp sand. If any
of the bodies of the trees arc cover
ed with rough bark they should be
first scraped smooth with a scraper
similar to that used by butchers.
Tho writer knows whereof ho treats
In presenting this remedv from
actual aud successful experience of
many years." Will some of our
readers try this remedy, and report
the result ?
Lawn-tennis. The edict has
gone forth to lower the net in lawn
tennis, and that for tho future, in
single matches, the correct height of
the net will be threo feet six inches
at the post and three feet at the cen
ter. Tho new rulo will be adopted
in the contest for tho championship
at Wimbledom. It seems a very
great pity that so many alterations
are mado iu tho game. The end
will be to spoil it. This lowering of
the net was not nt all desirable. The
height kept down tho experimenters
