--Owing to the devastating effects of the late severe drought in the island of Cuba, where provisions are scarce and high, the Government is said to be about taking off the duties on corn, rice, beans, potatoes, rye, flour, hay, hams, becon, fish, and lard — all of which articles are plenty enough in the United States, and may be sold to the distressed Cubans at fair but remunerative prices.
