Ninety-nine years ago si* hundred and eighty specimen* of the geuns i homo were embarked on board of one i of Her Brilauie Majesty's.brigs at the | isla'nd of St. Vincent, the scat of gov ernment for the English Windward Is 1 lands, and transported across the whole width of the <Carribean Sea to Ruatan. a small island then hut little known except to the buccaneers. 1 The main land, the north coast of Honduras, is from the island distant about twenty-five miles, nnd the Span ish planters soon learned of the suffer ing people upon Ruatan, and gave them employment upon their plantations and this island, which was only a rest ing place, and a final one to many of'; the fiSO, remained unoccupied for sixty years or more, and now it has a popu- j lation of about 1,500, but not a dcsccn- | dant of that cargo of Cnribs brought lYom St. Vincent in the British brig. That race has expanded to near 15,000,! and tlicv arc now found over about three hundred miles of coast from tiie i Cape Gragias a Dios westward to the' port of Omoa, in the Gulf of Honduras. ; And it is here with these people that ! every hater of work and believer in , the degradation of labor should immi grate. These Carlbs retain many of their old customs, and the Mohammedan- 1 Mormon institution of polygamy is one. i This peculiar institution carries with i it the inferiority of woman as a neces sary consequence, and the Cnribs be-: lieve with Mr. Ruskin that labor is de grading, which naturally leads them to impose the greater burthen upon the already degraded portion of commu nity, the females. When a young lord i of creation becomes too large to yield : to the control of his mother, he takes his canoe, and, hunting up a good lo cation fora homo, proceeds to clear the j trees from about an acre of ground, and. building a cabin, is, In his own estimation ami in tho opinion of the j whole people, deserving of a wife, which secured, lie is relieved by her from further euro. She attends to the garden, which produces tl.DUi ample food, and also makes the shanty cloth ing they require, or else by fishing, or [lie gathering of sarsaparilla, which irr>nra n'catlflltlV Ut til* fO ITMtf-. jMwI firv which rendv market is found in the United States—procures the means of i purchasing cloth, which, of course, tlifid degraded lnvlf convert* into ganiicnU-’! The young lord of creation is thus relieved from all labor until such lime is he again shall tire of his slave wife,, when he again take* his canoe and aunts another situation, where he re peats the clearing and building, and when done he chooses another wife,1 who takes possession of this new home ind divides the labor of entertaining [he husband with the first wife. IV lien liis lordship is tired again of liis inae-j :ivity, this same labor of clearing and Pome building is repeated, sometimes [ill one man lias five or six wives upon is many estates, usually so distant one from the other that t&e various wives . never see each other. When the number of wives is sufli rient for the ambition of the husband, liis days of labor are ended, and his life is spent in equal periods, with each, ind he troubles himself not in the least with the cares ol the family, or for his : food, but his days can pass in that bliss- j full state of indolence so landed by many, but achieved-by few. It is to this paradise for tho man en- j nobled by a healthy disgust tor de grading labor that we confidently re-; commend all the lary to start, for the starting is easy, but the journeying will j not be found so, as it is one of the pe- j cnliar results of this state of society that the great advantages of modern civilization do not extend to such peo ple ; if cheap and rapid communication extend to the Mohammedans, Mor mons, or the Caribs of Honduras, it will bo duo to the efforts of other pco nlc not to the cncrsrv and enterprise developed by that peculiar institution J which condemns one-half of the race to a state Worse than A frican Slavery.

His only power of interference was in the removal of the j commanders when they failed to exe cute the law in accordance with his views of their legal construction.
