MADAGASCAR AS A NEW FIELD FOR
The Standard says : uThc letter
from our special correspondent in
Madagascar gives a picture of the
industrial resources of the island
which is not leks replete with in
terest for our merchants and capital
ists than f et tile in suggestion to our
statesmen. A land of such promise
ought to attract settlement. On the
vast and untouched store of mlncinl
wealth which lircstlio immngination
and excites the hopes of the Creoles
of Reunion, our correspondent docs
not care to dwell. Sugar-planting
was first attempted on a serious
scale four years aco, and already
the estates yield annual profits of
fifteen, twenty, and even thirty per
cent. Here, surely, is an opening
for British capitalists who look with
nil but despairing anxiety for safe
fields of investment. Practically,
there is no limit to the urea available.
The plantations which our corre
spondent visited, and which lie de
scribes with such enthusiastic ud
( miration, form but a speck of the
' western coast land 'awaiting settle
ment ; and on the eastern side is a
similar belt from twenty to forty
miles broad and several hundred in
length. In more than one respect
the island enjoys advantages denied
to other sugar-pioducing climes.
The deej) rich virgin loam forms an
ideal soil. The cyclones w Inch dev
astate the ciops in the islands to the
west never touch Madagascar. The
rainfall is so abundant nnd so certain
that no artificial irrigation is neces
sary. There are all these things to
fill the mind of the planter with
pleasant anticipation ; and further,
the scenery is of a kind to soothe
and delight the eye."
600 KNIVES LOST.
Passengers on the Peninsula and
Oriental steamer Jflalica were placed
in a strange predicament lecently.
An Indian knife-cleaner on board
got drunk, tied all the table knives
(upward of GOQ in number) round
his waist and jumped overboard.
The ship was stopped and turned
round, but all efforts to rescue the
unfortunate man with the much
needed table knives were unavailing,
and the passengers were compelled
to eat with penknives and other sub
stitutes until the vessel reached
Alexandria. Melbourne bulletin.
"If I rest, I rust," is a German
proverb. "If I trust, I bust!" is
the American version.
