I ht the intervale of Cabinet-making our grave and revMild Senators indulge a'esprit, as for The election of a chaplain was the only novelty m leg islation on Monday, if legislation called.

Mr. Colfax d1d not catch at the bait, but smilingly responded, "The Chair would inform the ge'!tleman from Iowa .the of the previous qaeet10 does not operate 111 this body. Whereat there was a laugh all around the chamber from tbo11e w-ho bat\ heard the Bally.

'lbe exportation of twisted tobacco bas dewHbill the last year fully one-third, and that of leaf tobacco baa ioorebed to the same otent. The .Prenaa advocates the system of export duties, and attributes the fallihg oft' to the free trade a.t declares t.bat the !Bland of C'uba calinot compete if;lrJbor With Empe, where employment is so much 'I'be difFerent oommittees of the late meetPaltu!e to discot1s abd adopt for the relief of the letand, have at last made then report, and in compliance therewith General Dulce has decreed from the lilt of March new export dues of 50 cents on each box of sugar, $1 50 on each hhd., $1 on each bale of tobacoo exported, and 50 cents on each thousan4 cigars. Also, an extra charge of 5 per cent. on the value actual import dutiee, and 25 per cent. upon I 'the both htdustrial l and commercial, save twa& p.y.leas than t250 taxes." J r I 11 ( f { "1 0 1 To on the crop of American tobacco for 1868 from II. London circular dated Feb. I, is of in terest: "It would be entirely a new feature if the fu ture course of the market is not alfected by anticipation ; hence it is patent to all, the crops of la8t yt>ar in. North America were large, the Western alone bemg estimated at 123 000 hhds., the :M:arylande over 30,000 hhds., and Ohio a'bont 16,000 hbds., whilst the crop of Virginia is placed rather above that ot 1867, making a total in all of about 220,000 hhd3. for the supply of the world; and, knowing full well thal 'substitutes, enter largely into the eirculation of supP,ly, that a lower scale of rates must eventually prevail, and were agen'ts in the mariets AJf supply in America and also. in !lf to endeavor to lessen the sangume antic1pat1ons of weold be speculators in the interior of the United States they would in the long run be the best friends to the1 actual growers, who otherwise by out of proportional>le rates for 1868 crops, migllt be mdueecl to plant as largely this season, the result of which eventually under such circumstances must be disas trous; these remarks are made as already ad vices have been received of high having been paid for Westem leaf suitable for stemming purposes, in consequence of which holders in this country of present stocks base their on higher rates, bUt they may depend that the trade neither ot this country nor e1sewherer will be guided otherwise tban by the question of supply and demand. It may be_l'roper to note, in particular izing the quality of the Western crops of 1868, that fullv one-third IS estimated to consist of low grades euitable for the Continent of Europe onlr, hence no rise in such qualities can possibly be llXpected. We refrain from giving any estimate of the make of Westem and Virginia strips, but it may be remarked that ehould the lowest estimates only be realized, the supply will be more ample than for years past. The stock inN ew York 1st Jauaary, being 15,911 hhds., the total stocks of other ports in the United States and open markets in Europe may be estimated at that date at 55,000, total 70 911 bhds., showing a decrease of 20,000 against the aa:ne period last year. The imports to this port during the past month were 348 hbds., the deliveries 1,108 hbds., and the stock is 15,909 hbds. or 5,'731 hhds. less than at this period last year." Wnn regard to the gas swindle, the following testi mony of Hon. Charles P. Daly, First Judge of the Cou.rt of Common Pleas, im th1s city, before the Legis lath-e Committee, shows uP. the rottenness of the system. His Honor s experience is neither nor singular : "I wish to state a circum stance in connection w1th my use of gas .. In the year 18117 the house I now occupy, No. 84 Clmton-place, was undergoing repairs, and trom when the house was locked up, I went with my fam1ly into the country. We returned some time in October.

The sales of Western were of cigar leaf for the north of Europe-good brown luos and low leaf at 7t@l0c., and up to 14c. for good wrappers. There will probably be a large demt\dd tor this kina th" care iJ!.taken in assort ing. Thin leaf, IHilall 'lbre, and uniJOI'il brown color are the requisites. Of business during the month of February, the Cir cular of Messrs. c. B. FALLKlfSTJI: & SoN, cated March 5, says: Our receipts last montll, as wm be seen from statistics belo :w, exceed thoJ!e of. the same time last year by abo9t '7QO, hhds., thq.s O!tCe point towards the crop. The 9-oality and condi t i o n, althou00 to 2,000 bhds Buyers tl>,e pest. tion, whenever desirable lots are at a reasonable pncE', this accumulation, no doubt, due t9, the i 'rl.feri ority of the bulk of the receipts. 'All well bought and well ordered consigntnlllltlf will, we dar\! !lay, be di)l posed of quick ancl wqilst premature shipments may hang or l!lell rat a sacrifice. 1 Late ad vices from the spea.k or'a ment in both quality and order, ( arrd also ihdicate a somewhat eaRier dis:poeiaion. As will lie seen below, Virginia is figuring lD oaar reeli,. to an eneut. oftlWt? fifths, rec;koning frpm t.be 1st Jauuary .Jaat, but 1t will be borne iu mind that one-half has through here in transit. On the other han a, it IS eri dent that our trade in Virginia tobacco is strtnl{ly on the increase, and several eliv and old houBell have made it their specialty. 'l'lae 6 tilt\ larger trade, so far withbeW, r ;wogld. a good proportion of the V'rginia crop to our doors. To judge by samples the late crop doE:s not vary mnoh ft.om tlie preVIous one, and seems to take the lower Our February foot lip the hse of 2,000 Iibil!t.', two thirds of which to the trade "<wrappers, llllpeciallywlien of bright or bright mahogany color. New shipping be gina to establish its own buill, which for good leaf of quality is at an advance of -!c. to 1c. above similar old atock, and for the common run of lugs and low leaf, 1c. to 1!c. below it. Our market is Marly .destitute of those decided and fine Clarksville and Western distnct lugs, and to judge by daily for such, we are satisfied that uniform, nioo parools would meet Ill willing market. In order td satisfy at onoo a large correspondence n the subject, and correct ettoneous lmpre!IIIIOns, we sub join all we know about the different Regie contracts : 1. Spain has awarded a fresh contract to the well known Mr. Verheyden, of Btussel8, Belgium, to begin with the first of May ne.J:t. Its fgr the current year to be from 10,000 to 11,000 bhds. of Ky. tobacco, of a. character better and more leafy than in former years, discarding, at we bate trashy logs en tirt>ly, but running on mlml' 'sbowr, lengthY', and leafy lugs, low and medium leaf in' aBIIOrted lots, the exact prop01 tion of which, and tlie prioe at ifhiclii the contract wat! obtained, not having transpired 7et. Nor are the exact terms of delivery known, bot It is thought likely that bf. the first of March next the year's codtract has to be filled, and that htis 'be contractor may find it good policy to finish out inside of t'b.e present year. Be sides this, 1t is surmised that the old contractor is yet in arrears to the exteat of at leaet 11500 bhd8. of sim ilar tobaccos, giving to Splrin1 about 12,000 hbds. from our incoming crop, old supplies of requisite qual ity being entirely exhaust4d. 1 2. France has, as usual, pubhshed her terms and wants. 3. Italy has not spoken yet, -but it is. supposed that the new ass0ciation, having entered on its business with a no doubt reduced stock, may allot liberal eupplies to the diftcrent subd1visions of tlfe Italian Regie, and make its shortly. W abstain from any est1mate on the wants ofltaly, but we state that last year the Italian Government, iu view of the new rangement, issued ver7 light orders, not amounting to more than one-third o 'tv hat that country took from us in 186'7, and also, that according to om best informa tion, a portion of former contracts remains unfilled. The three Regies together, uudQUbtedlJ want fully half of the W este1 n leaf going to New York and New Orleans on sale this season. Our manufacturers, under the new tax law, are aiming at their full proportion the Medi terranean, Antwerp, Sweden, and Bremen will call on us handsomely. Africa and the West Indies will take their usual proportions; and old stocks are, or are being, exhausted to -almost annihilation On all of this we base onr hepes that there will not be much trouble to dispose of OW' crop at satisfactory rates, the more so, as tbe portiOn reaching the sea coast, in the shape of leaf, wiU.be considerably reduced, by the full amoun' of stemming going on West, amounting to probably 20,000 bbds. in the leaf, and by the retention of likely 35,000 hhds. for the Western trade. Nor is the crop any larger than our early es timates indicated; for the almost total failure of Mis souri is not to be overlooked, when we otherwise speak of a crop equal in size to that of 1866. These are facts, but notwithstanding all this, it behooves our Western friends to bear in mind that tobacco is raised nearly every where, and that as quick as we put up our figures out of proportion the consumption of Ametican tobacco di mimsbcs, and substitutes take its to a less or larger degree. W c must keep withm moderation, and by all means avo1d all such excitement last year proved so disastrous. The gold question is of much and deserving importance; for, say what we please, the pt e minm bas much to do with our currency prices. The heavy d e cline of late being based on the improvement of onr bonds in Europe, prom1sing to he permanent, should make us all attentive We take occasion to wa1 n our fdends against putting up or shipping to this ma1 ket any tobacco in less size than 1,000 lbs. net per hhd. Formerly, therufe ofourmarketwas o. deductiOn on all short weights of tc. per lb.1 this being no equivalent for the attending proper valua t10us of average lots, so'Ntc of ou1 most tHominent ship 15c., and 9 hhds do. old, at from 12-!c. to 15-!c.; 6 hbds. prii,ne qld Mo. at 12!c. a manufacturer hhds. old tow !eat, at 9fc. for Spain; 'l5 bhds. co4mon Mo. dry leaf, at ll}c. for England; 21 hhds. of old Mis souri fillers, at llc. to a manufacturer; 21 hhds.

We quote: 1l1 cases 1867 Ohio at llc.; 4'7 Clj.ses 1866 Connecticut 25c.; 45 cases State o" private terms; 22 eases State at 8c.; 150 cases 186'7 Connecticut at 50p.@60c.; 39 cases 1868 Ohio on pri vate terms. Spanish.-There is still considerable doing in Ho. vana, the sales for the week being 92 bales Remedios at 92c., and 500 bales of this anrJ other 'tyles of H.a vana at 88c.@81 01. The only transactions in Yara was a sale of 950 bales on private terms-being the to tal' receipts of a Beaver-street boose, sold to a leading firm. Manufactured.There was some activity in bonded goode last week, quite a numbe r of brigut pounds and ,quarters ljaving been disposed of. The mal'ket for fine, btlghts is said to be looking up. .'J;here also some 240 pkgs. of new da1k work sold for ex)>ort, a portion being made from new leaf, the remainder from old stEick. The eudden fall in gold. made quite a difference to exporters, but the prices were fair notwithstand ipg., ?'hflse new goods IIJ'e wanted for home con and the sa,les are, therefore, confined exclu sively to exporters. The si!6c ks of bonded goods here are growing "beautifully less," ami the receipts are ne-xt to nothing-only one skamer having arrived last week, and that not bringing more 200 pkgs. There is also considerable demand for medium bright aumm11r-made pounds, but the prices at which purchasers afe willinq to buy are very, very low. This shows the influence 1Jf the blockade goods, which, although they 1oom to .have disappeo.red altogether from this still abundant in the Southwest and the MississippL We understand that any quanti ty of bright work can l>e bought in those localities at' 40c.@45c : "tax-paid." The influ ence of the illicit goods is also seen in the conduct of the country merchants who come to this market. Those of this class who were formerly large boye. rs of tobacco during their annual visits, now seem to invest in every 'th\ng but tobacco. Groceries are indulged in but tJae weed is hardly touched. The reason is obvwus. These merchants will not pay freight on an article from N-&w York when they can buy the same g9P4& pheaper r.t their very doors. It is evident that the trade cannot experience an7 decided prosperity until the stock of blockade goods 1s entirely exhausted, So long as a merchant in New Orleans, or Memphis, can buy tobacco at 40e. per pound, professedly tax paid, without going ont of those there is not the alighest prospeo't that they will pay freight from New York on goods, of no better quality, that cost them in fmm 20c.@30e.-:-equal to 52c.@62c. tall: paid. Thus it will be seen tllat it behooves the plug trade to put forward every exe1tion to confisca"e and otherwise decrease the stock of illicit ROods. One -way to do this, is to urge on the passage of the bill passed by the Honse last session. This could be done by the trade sending on a deputation toW ashington. Two good men would be sufficient for this object. Or, what is better yet, the Treas01rer of the National Association, Mr. be empowered to act for the trade here. As he in Washington, the expense would be trifling. Bot in whateve.r way it is done, something should tainly be done to secure the issue of free stamps for tax-paid plug tobacco at once, and the putting into eft'ect the provisions of Section 78 immedJately J at\er their issue. Yfe published last week a very intelligent letter from our correspondent at Danville, V a., to bacco interest of that place. It wss ei'Idently written by Gne who understood what he wa's writing about, and contained several facts of importance to the trade. Our h\ls since boen called to ano.ther letter from the same town, published in theN. r: Herald of the 7th inst. What the writer says about a reduction of the tax is all very true, but he makes 'an egregious blunder with reference to in BroOklyn factories. We quote: "Dan ville, v a., March 4, 1869.After a mild winter we have a prospect in this latitude of a propitious spring and an early resumption of our chief industrial pur nits, preparations for the coming crops aml the handling of the great roont>y staple, to bacce. Danville is growing to be a quite important mar ket for the sale of leaf tobacco, though the manufac\llr ing interest here is not nearly of 11ucb magnitude it was from 1850 to 1860. The enormous tax: of thirty two cents per pounJ on the manufactured article has resulted in transferring this braullh of the bosines8 to other localities. Our people lack the necessary capital to succesafully manufacture the weed un1er the exist ing system. Consequently the great bolk.of the raw roatelial brought to this market for sale from the coun ties of Halifax, Charlotte, Pittsylvania, H>nry, Frank lin, and Patrick, Va.., and from Caswell, Rockingham, Person, Guilford, and Stokes, N. C., is reshipped to be worked at New York, Hrookl,Y,:n, Louisville, St. Louis, Augusta, or Columbus, Ga. fh1s is the heart of the fine tobacco-growing region of the United States. The season having fairly opened, the weed is coming into market in great quantities from the 11nrrounding country, but of the thirty to fifty thousand pounds daily sold here, nl)t one-fifth is held to be manufactured in this place.

Now, I am not going to say that or any other theory is incorrect, but I wish to examine this "bug" theory, and see if it will stand theoretical or practical examination. If it be correct, why does not the rust show wherever the bugs are found numerous, and why is the rust found to come where none of these insects are found? One would think in the case of some fields that these tiny blaek bugs" must be indefatigable ,pr that they ex isted in immense numbers, and were enormous eaters for so small bodies. Speaking of this theory, to1 an ob serving tobacco grower, this season, be told me that be bad a piece of'tobacco, on sevel'll.l rows on one side of the piece, next some potatoes, that were qovered with large numbers of these "tiny black bugs," et scarcely any rust was to be found, and that wher ever "the leaves were they did not turn this rust color, but a more whittsb and that in another part of the field where there -.,-v. re no bugs, and the plants were of ll ciiseased1growth, nqt' strong, there was plenty of met, The author of this thMry says he bas observed the11J. in the' .Wa.Pt bed, and that by sprinkling guano over the plants dri:res them away, and that where gu.auo was ap_plied in the! ,field thertl they wor'ked least, and the least rust was found. a;Jso peaks of a field io East Windsor manured wttb dilferent .qf fertilizers, and tb&t the growth was poorest, and the plants of tba't yellowish weakly growth, there the most rust oceurred, accounting for it that this "tiny black bug" preferred weakly plants, put that he would take a btte t'robl a $tQng growing one, althoug4 distasteful, for a reason that the inveterate tobacco chewer wou]d occasionally take a distasteful quid of for the want of better. Now, I think this theorist, and all oth who closely observe this rust, agree on one point ; and that is, fllst is uot as liable to if it does attack at all, healthy, strong, growing plants, as those of a more weakly or u healthv growth; therefor& wo'!11d seem that io or der to prevent rust, a11 preTention is better than core, that we should plantour tobacco oa eoil that is healthy, of even quality through the field, be deeply worked, well fined, well drained, and full of good, well-fined or gaoic manure ; and that we should set only good strong plants stimulated into an early and continuous growth, from the time they are set till matured, and that as sGon is maturity: 's reached be immediately harvested, as rust more general!>.' comes on near maturity Q{ the plant. Well! you w1l say, all this may be very well, but you have not give'n us our theory of the rust, 8t yet. True my idea of the e&iiAe of rust is, that tbEl.l same cause that brings r1,1st upon the wpeat and o h'er grain causes it on tobacco, ana that it is a fungus, largely dependent upon the weather and the state of health in the plant; (or all observing naturalists agree that fnogi attack the more weakfy plants, while a strong and healthy one is better aOlc to resist the at 'lck, and more frequently goes free; the eakly one seldem escapes. Th1s fungus theory would seem the more rational, ad fungus growth often J":rfects itself in three da1 and thus we often aee our fields of tobacco well developed with rust after a few days, when it w!'ls entirelf free. Good authority says that the seed of a fungi JS a minute cell, and that these cells being de from their plant are borne about in the air seeking a congemal resting-place, and that when a congenial plant is found they immediately take root and eat eut the life of the plant, as their life and growth are derived from the plant on which they fasten, fungus plant growth and atudy is an exceedingly in teresting one, and might be profitably followed almost unlimitedly, but I here leave it, as my limits are al ready extended, that the reader will find much ofioterest concerning it in two lectures delivered before the Board of Agriculture for the year 1866. the let.t.41r of' rod 11tio ; e spoke to Freer from decisions-which dispose of the matter in contro &bou the!Je clAiftls, anct be l!lrid be ould li vi to convel'8y, is tiKI pest: of our judicial system.

A SINGULAR ToBAcco FLAVORING.-Last Tuesda,r night there was a "corn sh11cking" party at tbe resi dence of a German named Theodore Schultze about two miles from Fosttrburg, in Madison 'county. Schultze was formerly a tobacconist in Alton and while in that business had been accustomed to use "the extract of peach ker s," hatever they be. to flavor his tobacao. ome oftbis stuff he took witl him to the country, and, on the evening mentioned, concluded to mix it whiskey and, make ,...00 brandy for the delectatioq .of his guests. He did so and himself, George Griffint and Frazier drank horrible compound to test Its and effects. Ia tbree beul'B Griffin was a corpse, and the two otbera fearfully ill. They will probably recover but are likely to try Schultze's "peach brandy" a-dymore.

As to any dilfereoce in quality when grown in different latitudes, I give the assurance of those better qualified to judge from taste (as I have no experience in the taste of the weed) that the "Connecticut Seed Leaf" is equal, if not identical, with the "Virginia Seed Leaf." The weed commonly called "tobacco" only becomes such after having passed through. a fermentation or sweat pecul' r to previously, it is elYJrely unfit for smoking, chewing, etc. This fermentation take!' place only when there is a suitable quantity together, and packed closely to prevent drying out, etc. Manu. facturers sometimes hasten this process of sweating by the tobacco in a small, tight room for from five to fifteen days, at a temperature of 110 degrees Fahrim beit. On a s alrseale u may be dOhe in an out-door bake-oven bytieating a piece of iron br a stone, and changing two or three times in twenty-four hours. In these cases t6bacco'is t'agbtly compre18eu in boxes, and should on no account be opened till the tobacco is cooled off. In common farm operations the tobacco goes this stage naturally, if kept in dry build ings, packed in bulk or boxes usually the following summer after atripping. 1t also goes through a second ary fermentatil,)n the second year. These usually free it of that green, rough taste, and make it "tobacco." No tobacco raised in a northern climate "'ill ha e as fine flavor as that grown on the islands of the tropic zone. Tobaeeo to a certain degree with age, if properly kept pressed in boxes, etc. There is a dilft!rence in quality of the same variety raised on dif ferent soils: also a difference with different va1ieties oo the same s01l, and no after-treatment entirely over comes this difference. Cuba tobacco grown in this climate will not have the flavor which we Ji.pd in th imported, be the treatment the best and. most tho10ngh. Undoubtedly, Cuba plants, started to be ready to sr>t as early as possible and avoid frosts, would mature bet ter than when set later, as that vatiety reqmres a some-hat long_er season than the Uonneoticu seed leaf III.
