To' discourage this'by obstacles m obtaining
lands, tabcr, by false valuatioiMr or any tbmf ,
that operates as a check upon laudable enter
prise is unwise. The foreigners pay by far the
arcest amount of taxes. They indeed mamiy
sustain the government. By foreigners, we mean
oil vhite$, naturalized or not. If they leave, n
revenues must suffer materially. Even the king
and chiefs would be puzzled to support what of
state they now have. This is easily shown.
At least three quarters of the specie revenue i

&c. The liquor duties, derivable wholly from
foreieners, rive about $20,00O-the S per cent,

to the native consumer, $40,000 tarop for en
tries, business documents, 8tc., among foreign
ers, at least $3,000-4icences, harbor dues, etc.,
912,000. Say out of 100,000 annual revenue
the whites actually pay near $80,000 directly,
besides mnch indirectly, for the benefit of the
country, in private subscriptions to churches,
schools, and public improvevicnts. This, then,
being the case, the foreigners are entitled to inucn
from the government. Their in
terests should be nurtured and thry be encour
a Ted still further to settle and invest capital here
The selfish interests of the chiefs theinsel?es ue
mand this. The native population require it.
What would be the result, if half this $90,000;
say $40,000, should be deficient in one year
owing to withdrawal of business and capital.
Could the natives make up the sum? Their
means would be lessened proportionately for pay
ing their own taxes. King, chiefs and officers
alike would lie obliged to live upon one-half of
what they receive now, besides being compelled
to purchase their foreign supplies at a dparer
rate. For the greater the market the cheaper
the article to the consumer.
We do not write this in the spirit of censure
but that the subject may receive the attention it
merits. " If the whaling business drop off, as it
probably will, from a variety of causes, some
thing permanent should take its place. Provi

CThe spring season it will be seen was a re
markably poor one for whalers in comparison
with preceding years. This fall was 'much bet
ter, still the decrease of I9t whale ships in twelve
months is somewhat remarkable and the rea
sons are worth inquiring into. ' It may be that a
much fewer number were-fitted out from the
United States and Europe in the fall of 1846, or
they may have sought other ports to recruit.
The present year will decide whether it is owing
to a natural decrease in the business or to the su-
nroftpred bv other ports. . It
V g - .
is generally supposed that a large fleet will col
ect here in the autumn, but that in spring many
ships will recruit at Guam, Hongkong, and Ma
nila, for Japan and Kamschatka. It is evident that
no permanent reliance can be placed upon the
whaling enterprise as a source of business for this
kingdom. At the best it is a mere chance, and mer
chants in importing goods must do so in reference
to the fact, that at any moment, the whaling busi
ness is liable to diminish very materially, and in
fVw vonra tn tw n low as it was in 1840. In
U V 'I J u w - -
that event, unless a wise and liberal system is de
vised to encourage the cultivation of sugar, cof
fee. &c., a large proportion of the present busi
ness and capital here invested will be compelled
to seek more favorable openings, and Honolulu
m-civfi a serious check in its prosperity.. The
government have done all that lays in their ptv
er to encourage the visits of whale ships. F.et
them do as much to promote the investment of
capita in agriculture, and though the wbalTng
business decrease, in a few years the country
will be producing an amount of natural products
for export to Oregon, California and tlsewhere,
far more than sufficient to compensate for the
loss of the precarious whaling business. Agri
culture is the only sure reliance of the country,
It will not be sufficient to permit after long and
difficult negotiation certain individuals to obtain
lands even at fair rates, but if a market is to be
created for native labor and products, foreign
capital must be invited hither. It is well, un
doubtedly, for industrious white men with
out means, to be encouraged to transfer to this
country their talents and energies, but it is far bors, California and Oregon
more important that capital and men of known coffee and sugar, those countnescan turni-.li each
