The Mm gar Crop of tlx World And Ita More
Next to the importance and magnitnde or the pro
duction of cotton, stands the growth and supply ol
?sugar. From having been little known to the Greeks
and Romans, except by small samples brought from
China, in the form of candy, which they believed
were derived from the extraction of a species of
reeds, we find its actual cultivation was first intro
duced 4oy the Saracens into the Islands of Rhodes,
?Cyprus, Sicily and Crete, in the ninth century. In
the "twelfth century the Venetians derived it cheaper
and more abundantly from Sicily than from Egypt.
The march ot the Crusaders into the East caused
'them to become better acquainted with sugar, and
on their return they spread a taste for it over the
-west of Europe. Venice had imported it as early as
996, anterior to the Crusades. The process of re
-fining R is a modern discovery, made by a Venetian
about the dose of the fifteenth century.
When the Saraoens Obtained a footing in Spain,
?they soon after introduced the cultivation of sugar
into<that country, which spread over the southern
provinoes. and was carried into Portugal. From
'these countries its cultivation was introduced into
the Canary and Madeira Islands in the early part of
the fifteenth century.
It has been doubted by some whether the sugar
cane is a native of the American continent. The
weight of evidence, however, is in favor of the
? affirmative, supported by the opinion of Baron de
iHnmboldt. It is also said to be a native of the
Sandwich Islands.
The oldest English settlement made In the West
Indies was at Barbadoes, In 1C27, and in 1647 they
commenced exporting sugar to England. In 1656 she
attained her maximum, and employed 400 vessels in
'the trade, averaging 150 tons each. Jamaica,
wrested from Spain by Cromwell, in 1656, contained
at the time only three small sugar estates.
The first cultivation was commenced in Hnyti in
1506, and was found t> succeed better there than
any where else. Being at first in the hands of the
Spaniards it for a long time was the sonree from
which Europe derived its chief supplies. Previous to
its desolation by the madness of abolitionism in 1790,
there were no fewer than 65,000 tons, or 130,000,000
pounds, of sugar exported from the French portion
?of the island.
With the destruction of that island, its culture
was spread to other portions of inter-tropical coun
tries, where labor could be had on favorable terms.
A large number of French refugees from St. Domin
go settled in the then colony of Louisiana, where
they established sngar plantations, and greatly ex
tended its cultivation. The culture was also
rapidly increased after its purchase by the United
States, aided by American skill and enterprise.
By the fall of St. Domingo Jamaica was greatly
enriched, and reached a high stage of prosperity;
bat by tbe abolition of the only labor suited to its cul
ture, it, too, is following St. Domingo in its relapse
and decay.
The Venetians, in the fourteenth and fifteenth cen
turies, imported small parcels of sugar into England
and France. Prior to that period, and for some time
after, honej, as with the Greeks and Romans, formed
the chief reliance with the people in the north of
Europe for sweetening their food. Early in the
leventeenth century it was only the rich who could
afford to use sugar. In 1700 England only imported
10,000 tons, or 22,000,000 lbs.
The taste for it gradually spread, and with the in
crease of the consumption its production was aug
mented by the large accession of African labor car
ried from the continent of Africa to the British,
Spanish and French West India Islands, and into
Brazil and other localities. The production and
consumption mutually grew together until ail parts
of the civilized world have measurably ceased to view
it as a luxury, but consider it to be a necessary aliment
for food, as cotton is a material for clothing. With the
overthrow of, St. Domingo, its cultivation was trans
ferred to those intcr-troplcal countries where slave la
bor was cither perpetuated or fresh supplies were al
lowed to be introduced from abroad. Some of the
largest fortunes in England, in whish New England
participated, were made by the same trade, and by
the sugar culture and rum distilling in Jamaica, of
whom their descendants are to be found in Massa
chusetts, and in the west ot old England, including
the great Gladstone family.
We have since seen the culture of sugar extend
from small beginnings in the West India Islands to
the Mauritius, the Brazils, Bengal, Isle of Bourbon,
Java, Siam, Philippines, Ac,, which, with the
French, Dutch, Danish and English West India
Islands, including Demerara and Berbice, produced
in 1833 600,000 tonB, of which 203,060 tons were
imported into England; while France, in 1830, with
about 31,000,000 population, consumed 67,250,000
kilogrammes, equal to 12-126 kilogrammes per
head, or about 4$ to 5 lbs. each. This
consumption, however, was exclusive of that
derived from the indigenous production from beet
root sugar, and that which was smuggled into the
country to avoid heavy duties, which in 1832 was
from 16.00o.000 to 18,000,000 lbs. Thus, allowing
for the quantity fraudulently introduced, with all
ether supplies, the total consumption of France at
this period was about 103,000,000 lbs.; and the
population being about 32,000,000, gave a consump
tion of about C lbs. per head; while in England the
estimated consumption, at the same period, was pnt
down at about 24 lbs. per head. In the United
States, for the same year, the estimated consump
tion was about 70,000 a 80,000 tons, or 140,000,000 to
160,000,000 lbs., thus giving from 10 10-13 to 12$ lbs.
per head. Of the 80,000 tons consumed, 12,000 tons,
or 24,000,000 lbs., were produced In the United States.
The total production of the world in 1833, exclusive
of the United States, Ac., was about 1,120,000,000
lbs., or 560,000 tons, and the consumption at the
same period, in Europe, including beet root Bugar,
amounted to 1,108,000,000 lbs. Since 1833 to 1856
we shall find by the following tables, that, not
withstanding the production of sugar in the twenty
three years has enormously increased, the con
sumption has gained upon it. Tho application of
the London Exeter Hall principles, or the war o
abolition upon African labor, tirst in St. Domingo
then in the British West Indies, and then on labor
in the Spanish colonies and in Brazil, has had the
effect to cause consumption to overtake the lftbor o
production and the white populations of the teiii]>e
rate climates must, for the future, expect to pay
largely enhanced prices for the tropical products of
<iotton, sugar and cofTce, so necessary to their coin
fort and well being.
The miserable attempt to revive the slave trade
under the disguise of the coolie trade, must prove a
failure. It is a trade which possesses all the hor
rors of the slave trade without its benefits. If the
foimcr was condemned as piracy, the latter should t*
doubly condemned. The feeble Mongolian coolios,
occupying a position between the Africans and the
Europeans, or whites, are neither calculated to per
form the tropicnl labor of the blacks nor to riso to
the civilization of the whites.
As far as sugar and coffee are concerned, England
?can look on the decline of production in the Western
world with perfect indifference, because in India,
?where half the produce of the natives is exacted as a
land tax by the Honorable East India Company, the
sugar of Hindostan and the coffee of Ceylon can be
made to repair the exhausted resources of wealth
hitherto poured out by those countries to Britain.
But in regard to cotton the question is entirely
different. This we have shown in a former article.
We have shown that she must annually have large
supplies, and that she cannot obtain them in suffi
cient quantities from any part ol the world other than
the United States. Hence, she cannot consistent
ly with her own preservation, destroy slavery in the
United States, or suffer others to do it. Not only
F.nglnnd, but all Europe, Is interested in the pre
servation of the cotton culture of the South. In
British India the culture of sugar and coffee is in
? reusing. The writer,saw sugir machinery building
m London some few years since, for Mr. Gladstone's ,
sugar estates in British India, which was to cost
about $150,000. Yet Brazil and Spain are persuaded
into the adaption of the belief that the English
crusade against African labor, in the New World, is
for their interest. We come now to the tables giving
the production and consumption of sugars of the
world, brought up to the year 1856:?

The crop of Cuba for 1855 was 1,900,000 boxes,
and, calculating five boxes to the ton, 380,000 tons.
For lk56 it was estimated that it would exceed the
last by ten per cent; it is now found that it will
hardly eaceed that, and by some it is computed at
ten per cent less, but we may put it at 400,000 tons.

We thus see that the production of sugar has not
increased in the same ratio as Its consumption?the
latter stimulated by the low prices ruling for several
j ears past. Now that prices have for nearly a year
been remunerative, production will soon be again
stimulated. By the table of production above, we
see that the production in 1854 exceeds that of 1856
by 57,000*tons.
By the above tables we find that the following has
been the large increase in the consumption of sugar
in twenty-three years :?

Conaum'u, iae'g beet root, lbs 1,248 000,000 2,762,000 000
The apparent production in 1856, gives only a
slight excess over consumption, but it is believed
that the actual consumption in 1856 will be in excess
of production. In other words, with the improved
means on the part of the people, by the greater diffu
sion of wealth, from the influx of gold from the min
eral regions of California and Australia, the con
sumption must rapidly increase over the civi
lized world. This increase of wealth also en
hances the value of labor devoted to its cul
ture, and to a corresponding advance in other tro
pical productions, which will tend to divert labor from
its production. Hence, the consumption of the
world must soon, if it has not already done so, out.
strip production. For twenty-three yiears the pro
duction and consumption have struggled on to
gether, and been pretty regularly balanced. When
labor was destroyed in St. Domingo and Jamaica, it
was augmented in Cnba and Brazil by the African
slave trade, and the balance of supply and demand
kept up. But now African labor has been checked,
and must diminish in those countries, and gold in
troduced to increase both consumption and the
value of labor employed in the production, we
must expect, in the next period of ten or twenty
years, to sec the production fall far short of the de
mand, at d which can only be met at high prices.
Our figures are derived from the most respectable
ana reliable sources. Those for 1833 are chiefly
taken from English statistics, which differ with
those given by French writers?hence we have
given them in general terms, as approximately cor
rect, from the conflicting statements, and which
may not prove absolutely exact, but afford a good
general idea of the result.
Previous to the revolution in Hayti, or St. Do
mingo, the French had 793 sugar estates, 3,117
coffee plantations, 3,160 cotton do., and 677 miscel
laneona plantations. In 1789, the year before the
revolution, she exported 145,192,043 lbs. sugar,
71,000,000 lbs. of coffee, 6,000,000 lbs. cotton, and
about 1,000,000 lbs. of indigo?of the total annual
value of about $25,000,000.
In 1836-37 the exports of Hajdi had dwindled
down to 16,199 lbs. of sugar, 30,845,000 lbs. of coffee,
1,000,000 lbs. of cotton, and of indigo none. These
reduced exports, with some mahogany and tobacco,
are the results of abolitionism on that island, in
about forty or forty-four years after the massacre
and ruin of the whites of that once flourishing
and beautiful island.
We have not space, or we could show from offi
cial documents that abolitionism has, in the same
manner, worked the ruin and desolation of the
British West India Islands. But fanaticism heark.
ens to no reason. It ignores the commerce,
the common sense, and the life, liberty,
happiness and comfort of the whites, for
the one black idea of sinking all for the less than
doubtful benefit, or we might say for the ultimate
ruin, of the negroes themselves, and with them the
common ruin of the whiteB, to accomplish the work
of their insane crusade.
From small beginnings of the culture of sugar in
Louisiana by refugees from Hayti, we find by the
census of I860 the whole production of sugar
in the United States, including 34,253,436 lbs. of
maple sugar, to have been 155,100,800 lbs. The
value of cane sugar was $12,878,186, and of maple
sugar $1,752,671, and the value of molasses was
$2,540,179. There were 2,681 sugar plantations,
embracing 400,000 acres devoted to its culture.
Since the late census the supply of maple sngar
has greatly diminished, while the culture of the
cane in Louisiana and Texas has been greatly ex
tended. Although the crop grown last year, or in
1855, was only 379,197 tons against 385,298 tons in
1854, showing a decrease of 6,107 tons. The pre
sent season has been backward for planting, with
some scarcity of seed cane, and hence feare are en
tertained that the present year's yield may again
be short. Texas last year supplied 8,977 hhds.
From the annual statement of M. P. A. Champo
mier, of New Orleans, we learn that the number of
hhds. produced in Lousiana last year wore 231,427;
number of horse pawrr sugar mills, 361; number of
steam mills, 938; number of sugar bouses, 1,299.

By a native vessel which arrived yesterday we
learu that Captain Jones, the Resident at Rushire,
has hauled down his ting and left the place, and
that the port has been placed in a state of blockade.
Our informant is a Persian merchant of respectabili
ty, who has connections and relations at Ihishire,
and we therefore believe that this may be relied uir
on. lie informs us, moreover, that Persian troops
were rapidly pouring into the town, and that the
general impression was that war had become immi
nent. He also states that the feeling of the inhabi
tants, not only of Bnshire, but of Persia generally,
woh decidedly in favor of annexation, inasmuch as
the oppressions of the present government have lie
come intolerable. As an instance he cited to us his
own esse. He has been deprived of property valued
at some five and twenty thousand rupees within the
last few months, on one pretext or another, and he
assures us that his is by no means an isolated case.

tacked by about ons hundred and fifty of ths latter, wh?n
two of his msa were killed. A second conflict was as
panted, aid the meeseager thinks that if It'bappenel
the probability is, that all of Mr. P.'s party, which num
bered forty or fifty, were killed.
We learn from Mr. James Chorn that three abolition

TrssoAY, June 10?6 P. M.
The stock market oootinues firm end active. The dally
transactions are;to about the same extent, and holders
have the ability and the diapociition to oarry stocks. At
the first board to day, Illinois Central Bonds advanced X
per cent; Canton Compmy, Cumberland, X\ New
York Central Railroad, ^Reading, yt \ Michigan Central
Railroad, X; Michigan Southern, X; Galena and Chicago,
H\ Cleveland and Toledo, Cleveland and l'lttsburg,
M; Mil waukic and Mississippi, It appears by this
that the improvement 10 day was pretty general. Erie
opened and closed steady, with large sales. New York
Centre! and Reading were quite active. All the Western
railroad stocks were better, and in demand. The money
marktt la almost hourly getting easier. The banks are
fairly overwhelmed with money, sod already find the ac
cumulations rather uneomrortable. Private bankers are
dally making personal applications to the brokers to loan
money, and rates as low as five pet cent have been ac
ceptable. This ahnndanee and cheapness of money must
work oat most favorable results In the stock market.
Capital will be foiced into stock securities for
employment, or other wise remain Idle in the
banks. Oar people are not likely to let money
remain unproductive; and aa thsre is no more feasible
way to make It active than temporary investments in
good, dividend paying stoeks, the probability Is that be
tween this and the middle ol Jnlr there will be plenty
of outside buyers, at prioes considerably above those
now current.
At the second board the market was comparatively
quiet. Illinois Central Bonds fell of X per oent; Nicara
gua Transit >?; New York Central, and Nsw York Erie
X each; Reading %; Cleveland and Toledo X- 7118
transactions were oaly to a limited extent. The bears
occasionally make an effort to get the market down by
putting small lots out at iowsr rntes. Such operati >ns
this season have not worked well, and the sellers have
generally corns In the next day and bought back at high
er prioes. Holders will not submit to lower prioes as long
as It continues so easy to carry them. There can be no
stocks pressing for sale as leng as call bonds can he ne
gotiated at five per oent.
The steamship Africa, from this port tor Liverpool to
morrow?Wednesday?will not take ont more than half a
million of specie. The steamer from California has been
oat twenty one days and must be near at hand.
The stock of the Academy of Music has bean on Wall
street for some time, bat has only been sold at ths auc
tion stock sales at the Merchants' Exchange. It is not,
we believe, on the books or the Board of Brokers, and
can therefore be considered the worst kind of a fancy.
It has never paid a dividend, and from the financial ope
rations now going on, we should judge that it never
would. It is a fancy stock of a more modern character
then those which have for so many years been on the
market. The old ones have lasted a long time, and some
have a little Ufo in them yet; but this Academy of Muslo
fancy la Uke'y soon to disappear. It Is about the last
up ax d probably will be the first down. Its market value
has not been much from the beginning. The first sale
was at 80 per cent and the last at 20 per cent. This
company originated and has been carried on like all fancy
stock operations. Ths original intention of the origina
tors is, in all such stocks, to ultimately extinguish the
shares and leave the entire property in their hands.
The money paid on such stoeks is suppose 1 to be suffi
cient to prolect the bondholders and other creditors
against all contingencies, and give them a good In
vestment at the rednced cost. In all atock companies
the stock guarantees the bondholaers against loss,
and It Is therefore particularly necessary In all
fancy operations that there should be suffiotent
stock for that purpose. In the Academy of
Musie Company we think this contingency has been
pretty well provided for. There are two hundred shares
at a par vain# of $1,000 each, which makes an aggregate
of $200,000. The debt of the oompany is $160,000. This
the stock guarantees, and it strikes as that $200,000 in
stock is jnst about sufficient to proteet the bondholders
against loss. It will not do much more, considering the
peculiar character of the property. The stock is full,
paid up, and is not therefore subject to assessment. A
sail has peon made for $126 per share, and ths probabi
lity is that It will not be responded to. The payment o
that sum per share would produce only $26,000, which
would he absorbed at ones by the payment of interest in ar
rears and other floating liabilities, leaving the sharehold.
ers, subject, at no distant day, to another assesement for
the same purpose. So far a s the stockholders are concerned,
it was a fhncy speculation to start with, and vill doubt
less end as they all do. The only way to plaoe the stoek
brMers in a strong position, to provide against all future
contingencies, is to eall for the payment of $1,000 per
sbare (the original prlos), and pay off all debts at onoe
The Interest on the debt Is about $10,000 per annum, and
so long as that debt exists so long will the stockholders
be compelled to pay assessments or lose the whole of
their Investment. Either the stockholders or the bond
holders must be sole proprietors.
The circular of De Copper k Co., prepared lor trans

i?tes. In city bonds we have stlU ao return of animation
to notice. A few sales have taken place of Chicago 6's
end St. Ixmis City and County 6's. Prioes remain without
my material change. Railroad bonds, at private sale, ooo

Commissioners, are whe and judicious.
There are elaren of then* institutions, of which four
are iu Hartford, and t?-0 of the aleran (In Norwalk and

The old class ot savings banks are represented as pros
perous, paying six per eent to depositors, and doing a
safe business, though there is too great a disposition In
acme of the larger odss to Invest to bonds and stocks.

Flour and Grain market.
[From tbo Circular of Kdward BUI.]
Aa yet wa are without any receipts from the main per.
lion of the krie canal, owing to a sucseaaion of breaks,
end other delay* cause 1 in n measure by the severity of
tbe late winter. The chief article to ome forward la Indian
corn, o! which a considerable stock has ascnmulatod at
Buffalo, and Is in progress of shipment. There is but
tittle wheat there, and the flour has already been sent
lot ward by railroad. From tbe Oswego btanah w* are tm
dally receipt of considerable queoti'iog of all kinds ot pro
duce. Our market for lit ur, during the fortnight past,
has iiuetuated with th* supplies, which hare been quit*
sufficient for tbe demand. The foreign markets, by lata
sdvices, show more animation, and orders to acme ex
tent here been recefred, confined ohiefty to a better elans
ol brands than formerly. Prom this cause, and the ap
proach of warm weather, the receivers of oommen kUohi
gan, and other low trades of Western and State breads,
have been ready seller* on arrival, and tha q notations
are about 60 cents per barrel lower, whilst theme alum and
better brands are more leedlly disposed of- at a lens
sacrifice, being wanted tor the olty and local trale. There
is a good shipping Inquiry for prims wheat, aad that de
scription has bean of ready sal*. A large portion of ihs
dally receipts consist of common Western red, and ship
pers find It difficult to procure qualities suitable to fill or
ders, except at prioos above limits. As the home miUern
are unwilling to carry much stock at present ratse, the
turn of prices are in buyers' favor. The arrivals from
the Sonth ape quite moderate, aad will so continue uatoi
next harvest, and from the west, It is generally under
stood, will not be large, although the reoalp s by Erie
cansl, at tide water, to 81st May, show 160,604 bushels
In excess of last year, at the same period. Rj e ooutlnueu
in light stock, and Is a few cents lower. Indian corn la
in leas demand, and with in creating reoelpts here, and fan
prospect from the West, has declined 4c. or 6c per
Duahel. A considerable portion dally arriving is damp
and unfit for shipment. There is a decrease of 608,278
bushels in the canal supplies at tide water this season, to
31at from that of last year to the same period.
