Sia Referring te oer eooversatioo of tbis

the pts4t positMm of tbe Australian Steam--ship
cjaestioa. asd tke perfect uoderstasdin that
bar bea arrived at between the Xortb Pacific
TrSBSporlatioo Co;or asd Wm. II. Webb, of
Xew York, by which a line of powarfitl steamers
will be pat into operation between San Fratxasco
and Aotraba as soob as the neeessarv details as
! to ports of ealL coaKog stations, etc., can be ar-
raaeed. to efieel winch parpose. I am at present
oa ay way to the Colonies.
I now have tbe honor to submit, in accordance
with yoor Excellency's sopcestion. one or two
points on which it is requisite I sbouid be inform
ed prior to ay departure, and without which my
iostraetiOBS wilt sot permit me to make dffinUe
avraapMBesU in the Colonies, to provide that
rJonoMa shell be a permtttent port of call for
tbe reception of passengers, cargo, mails and coal.
In so important an undertaking, involving tbe
expeodhBre of a large immediate outlay, it is of
conree essentia! to ray principals that they sbooid
know apon what they have to depend before
taking action. IJhat being so, may I ask your
Excellency to be pleased to say il it is nnder-
. . . , . , , , , . ,
win Jie eosssioerea to be pleeged to the peviog of

a QfSeeat kneth of time to take on board all the
carro that rany be ready for sUipu.eot.
I aa aware that Bsder the terms of the law,
Yoar Excellency caaoot definitely promise the
sobady lor more tbas two veers. For the rea
sons which I folly explained to yoa, it will be
.obvious that the f obssdy from tbe various Gov
ernments concerned should all be granted for a
similar period. As oer contract with the Colo
nies will be for five years, it is. I very respectfully
sabtait. a reasonable proposition that yoar Gov.
ernaieut sbooid agree to propose and cse their
infioener to carry a measure to extend tbe subsi
dy to 25.000 per annum lor a further period of
three years. It is of course understood that yon
will be prepared to (apply all the accommodation
ia respect to wharfage, daes. lights. etc which
have hitherto been so liberaHr promised by year
The fraak and satisfactory verbal explanations
which I had with Yoor'Excetler.cy tills morning-,
give me the assurance that His Hawaiian Ma
jssty's Government will soon have to coDgratn
fete themselves opoo tbe establishment, on a
pererDeat basis, a Hne of first-ebss steamers sach
as have aever been seen in tbis port, and which
will speedily create a irzSp which will be fruitful
of important results to the future of these Islands.
By the credentials which I presented to Yoor
ExeeDescy. yoa will ot coarse o rulers land that I
am acting in this matter ia the interests of the
Xorth Pacific Transportation Co. and Wm. H.
Webb, which are now consolidated.
I have the honor to be Yoar Excellency "a

The Insect Pest.
From different parts of the islands we
hear deplorable accounts of the destruc
tion of growing crops from the ravages of
insects, unknown in former years: The
cauc-borer on Kauai, especially, attacking
as it docs our principal means of raising a
revenue, first attracts our attention. From
a gentleman who recently visited Kauai,
we learn that this insect is rapidly increas
ing on that island, and bids fair to he
come a most serious drawback to the
prospects of the planters. In one instance,
an apparently thirfty stock of cane, some
fourteen feet in length, when cut down
was found to be perfectly hollow iuside,
and full of the injects and their larva?.
Cottonit was thought at one time, was
likely to become one of our most reliable
and easiest as well as cheapest of produe-
In the secoud vcar after the atten
tion of the native farmers was directed to
its culture, the cotton (in seed) brought
to Honolulu for sale amounted to from
seventy-fivc-tbovisand to eighty-thousand
pounds. Since then, however, owing to
the ravages of caterpillars, known in the
Hawaiian language as anttii, emJii, and
p&iua, the production has greatly fallen
off) aml tbe of lasl ycar dM 1IQt
exceed 30,000 pounds of seed cotton.
, , ,
j Formerly the season for the appearance of
i the caterpillars was quite distinctly marked
ont now" 11 appears that, owing to the dis-
tribution of the rains throughout the year,
these pests are almost omnipresent. The
cotton raised here, is of the sea-island or
long-staple variety, the most valuable for
commercial purposes. It is as remarkable
for the length and firmness of its fibre as
for its ilky softness, and ranks fully equal
to the best boulh Carolina sea-island.
The best quality sells in England for about
two shillings per pound, and is employed
for spinning the finest yarns, and making
laces as well as spool cotton. The climate
and soil of these islands are peculiarly
j adapted to its growth and it hecomes
j perennial, hut here come the insect
j plagues. In the district of Kau, in one

oy tne withering Diast ot a simoom, and
the savings of vears and the lahor of
months were swept away. Can no scienti-

lor these insect pests ?
While speaking of cotton we notice
the enterprising agriculturists of Califor
nia have commenced its culture, for which
some localities of that State appear to he
-well adapted. Last month, some speci-
