In respone to the inquiry of "A Subscriber" in our lait, as
to whether it is held that the increase of wages paid to laborers
is equal lo the increased value of eujir from the remission of
duties we bg to present a few figures to show the negative
of the question. In previous years, the average cost to the
planter was $100 per annum for ea'.li laborer employed; it is
now about $150 per annum. The produi t of sugar per man
may be iairly estimated at three tons. Not the production of
a ton of sugar coats the planter abvut f -7 more to-day, in the
increased rate of wages paid to laborers than it did two years

In view of the approaching session of the

at the aspect of tLis question abroad, to show
the light in which the perils connected with it
arc regarded, and thus, by the experience of
others, gain eome knowledge of the proper course
for u! to pursue in order to guard against the
dangers that lie before us. We repeat what we
have so often said, that, in our case, the great
and, indeed, principal danger lies in their great
disparity of sexes, with the consequent rapid de
crease of the aboriginal population, attendant
upon the probable absorption by the Chinese of
a large proportion of the marriageable native
females. A very little reflection is sufficient to
convince us that this peril is not a fancied but i

Maui, were lavored during December with
several copious showers, the pluvial gods have
1 withheld their favors elsewhere. During the
! past six or seven weeks there has been an intcr
j ruption of the icgular trades and a constant
j succession of light airs from the West and
I North, with cool nights aud warm sunshiny
t days. There havo been a few light, misty
ehowcrs, but the whole amount of rain-fall
since the first of January, lias amounted to only
I 44-lOOths of an inch. During January, rain '
j fell on three days only, to the amount 17-100ths; ;
j and up to February 14th, there were light
i showers on three days, to the amount of I
; 27-lOOths of an inch. This, however, was in j
the city; there was more rain iu the upper part of i
, the valley. It may be that the coming spring J
; and summer months will compensate for the !
winter's lack of water tmpply. But in the ,
meantime, although the reservoir thanks to the I
i removal of cattle last vnar frntn tln lintd nf
! the vallev-conth.m to Ut,r,lv the needs of th,; I a8 a luablc addition to the population
, city, yet the pastures:, particularly on the lec
side of this Island, are dried up, and cattle arc
! starving and dying in many localities. The
making of butter is ultuet entirely discontinued,
and the price of frcth beef has advanced.
In looking over our exchanges we observe that
, the weather iu the Eastern States has also been
unprecedented. L'p to the first ol January,
instead of the usual severe cold, it had been as
warm as though it were the middle of May.
; In the neighborhood of New York City, cherry
trees were in blossom, the blue-birds had re
turned from their winter trip to the South, and
the graad was growing green again. The news
papers had taken up the subject, and long
editorials were devoted to discussions and con
jectures as to the cause of this singular conduct
on the part ol the weather. The philosopher of
the New York Times calls to mind that during j
the mouths of October and November the planet
Mare wan more brilliant than either Venus or
Jupiter. It was apparently double its usual
size, and its two satellites, which had previously -escaped
the observation of the best telescopes, .
were easily discerned. The astronomers oflered j
no explanation of this phcuoiucnon. W'c could
readily understand that Mars would appear un- j
usually large and that its satellites would become
visible, if the earth had approached closer to '
that 1'Ianct than it had ever approached before,
seriously affected by their contact. Iu the East
ern States, the question has heretofore been
regarded mostly from a philanthropic or religious
stand-point ; but on the Pacific Coast it is looked
upon by the mass of people, and especially by
the poor and laboring classes, rather from a
material and worldly point of view, and the
eventual conversion of the Chinese to Chris
tianity is there regarded with a good deal of
It cannot bo denied that Chinese cheap labor
has built up various local industries in California,
and led to profitable employment of capital in
difl'erent ways ; but the feeling is so general that
this has been done at the expense and to the
injury of the poorer class of citizens that but
little allowance is made for the benefits received
from the cheapening in price of many articles of
prime necessity formerly imported at high cost.
In Peru the Chinaman is desired and welcomed
intermarries with the lower class of natives, who
do not appear to have any prejudice against him
on account of race or color, and once married he
easily becomes a citizen, and thus mingles with
the population ol the country. But in Calfornia
and Australia he keeps himself aloof from all tics
tending to bind him to the country, and as his
numbers arc increasing so rapidly he is fast
becoming a menace to the community. Already
the people of (Queensland have adopted a measure
to check the overflow to which they are opposed
on very much the same grounds that obtain in
California, by laying a tax upon all Chinese on
arrival, intended to be nearly if not quite pro
hibitory, and the Home Government has sanc
tioned it. California cannot do this, lor such
legislation would be a usurpation of Congres
sional power, and consequently unconstitutional,
and which would bo at ouce set aside by the
Federal Government on that ground aloue ;
besides, if we arc not mistaken, it would violate
one of the clauses of the Burlingame Treaty.
The class of Chinese so much disliked iu Cal
ifornia and Australia is warmly welcomed iu
Peru, aud the Government is making strong
efforts to Tostcr aud encourage emigration from
China. It is estimated that there are already iu
Peru about SO.00O Chiucsc, who are now well
treated, aud the absorbing capacity of that
country for labor being almost unlimited, this
