With (he evacuation by tlie military
of Sau jinan and adjacent islands,
seriolis tremolos are apprehended by
the settlors. Jt is well known Uiat
these Islands contain some ofttie finest
agricultural lands on tlie Hitter coast,
parts of which have been for years
held, occiipied and cultivated by thrif
ty settlers. Owing to the anqmalons
status of the islands, no legal steps
could be taken to perfect title to any
of the siime. consequently the tenure
by which these lands are held by the
squatters, is very frail and slender,
and we are informed tliat numerous
land grabbers are ready to pounce np
on and appropriate to themselves the
fields and homes of these men, who
for years have htdustrimisly pursued
their humble but honest calling under
all the adverse circumstances induced
by military rule, and unprotected try
