Business Manage r .of "The Tobac c o L e a j :" SIR-Some time since I subscribed for your paper of a man named Bird, who professed to, be a regu larly authorized agent for your paper, and, upon his representation, paid him three months in advance, but ha-;:e not, as yet, received any paper from him or you. I have since found that the man is a fraud aRd im poster, and that his right name is Eugene McDonald. yours, JuLIUS KuNERT Loc k Box 3 STAFORD, Ct., March r8, I872 AI'I'AD\S AT WASDIKGTOII'. The action of the Senate last week in voting to put tea and coffee on he free list, has giv e n a new and unexpected aspect fO the tariff legislation of the session, w hile rendering a thorough revision of the system, or any considerable reduction in the revenue derived from other items, at present imposible If t e a and coffee are hereafter to pay nothing tow ard th> -;upport of the government, it is estimated that Uncle Samuel will be out of pocket about nineteen millions f r o m thi s r e duction alone. When it i s remembered that the Sena te F inance Committee reported in favor of a total tariff reduc tion o f only $ ; 1 ,ooo,ooo leav ing the re m aining $29,ooo,ooo out of the $so, Qoo,ooo t o be d r a wn fr o m internal revenue sources, it will be seen that the s ecuring of what i s call e d a free breakfast table will practically absorb the margin allowed for tariff r e du cti on It is poss i ble, however that additions to the free list may still b e m ade to th,e extent of from five to s ix millions, in which event, of course, the internal reve nue reduction would have to be proportionately cur tailed It was rumored that on Monday, the 25th inst.,-" Bill day "-a resolution fixing the tax on tobacco at sixteen cents uniform would be introduced, but we are glad to see that the design, if any existed, was abandoned. As we have before stated, we consider such demonstrations a waste of strength, and calculated to unfavorably affect the final vote when the measure now being per f ecte d by the Committe e of Ways and Means Shall be called up for aCtion. It is also said that Mr. Sherman, in the Senate, favors the abolitioh of the stamp tax, the revenue from which [$r6,ooo ooo] is self collecting and is c o nstantly on the increase. Of course if this suggestion prevails, we may bid good bye to the prospect of any re duction in the tobacco tax. But we hope for better things The common sense of our legislators must certainly show them tflat the stamp tax is the least op pressive of any now imposed. Why, then, abolish it when so many other industries claim consideration and redress ? Let us hope that to the whole subject will be brought at least a moderate amount of political intelli gence and an average degree of statesmanship. If these pevail, the stamp tax will certainly not be repealed. A CONGRESSIONAL STRAW. We have called the attention of our rhders to the fact, that the .tobacco trade to-day a more advanced position in legislative esteem at Washington than it has ever done before. The wants Of those engaged in the manipulation of the weed receive an attention and discussion never vouchsafed in the past. The claims of the trade are even preferred on the floor r!lf the House to the views of the Commissioner of Internal Revenue and the reported decisions of the Committee of Ways and This, although the practical results are not as y e t great, must be acknowleqegd to be very encouraging. It was not so very long ago when one favoring any reduction of the tobacco-tax,: or any allevia tion of trade burdens, was looked upon with but 1ittle more favor than the highwayman who demands, pistol in hand,. Your money oryour life." Certainly! "we have changed all that" by persistent trade effort, and \l(e now see the fruits of our labor almost daily In the Senate, where the Finance Committee has just reported in favor of getting thirty-six millions out of the .Jveed during the next fiscal year, we still seem tb have friends, althoug'h the most of our energy in ri:Jakipg verts has'been expended on the' fl,.,or ofthe Hous e.

We are a ,sound philos.ophy, would be promoted by willing to cheerfully pay our proportion of the taxes an adoption of his suggestion. All. we ask are the privileges enjoyed by other branches Senator Hill's remark may be a straw," but it clearly of mdustry in this free and happy land. We therefore 'Points "which way the wind blows" at the National your 'Qodies for the' repeal of that por-'tal' non of the law relaong to the bond system, and the cap! amendment of that clause relating to the special tax APPEAL FROM rB.ADE. THE CIGAR t;pon of cigars, so that it may be propor tionate accordmg to the number of persons employed or the number of cigars manufactured." On. the 21st, inst a deputation representing the cigar makers was heard before the Committee of Ways and Means. They asked to have the whole of 82 of t_he of July, I868, abolished, or so amended as to make it less onerous. In its present form it bears very hard on the small manufacturer, and the practical cigar maker. In further urging their tequest they said : "The small manufacturers find the greatest difficulty in procuring bonds, such as the law demands, and comply ing with the other requirements of the law, arid a great number of them are in this way debarred from practising their business as independent men. This law relating to giving bonds seems to be supediuous. Of the many millions of ciga,rs manufactured by the many manufacturers in this country last year, we have not heard of a single instance where the Government had to call on the bondsmen to satisfy its demand s for taxes. The license or special tax upon manufacturers of cigars has also been levied very unjustly. A manufadurer who employs one or two hundred men pays a special tax of ten doUars !The practical cigar-maker These complaints are well founded, and we trust that the Committee in revising the law, will give heed to them. It certainly can not be the wish of our legislators, in their passion for heaping burdens on the weed and its manipulation, to re-enact the' part of the Egyptians in their oppression of the Israelites, ans} compel those who are so unfortunate as to be cigar or tobacco manu fact'.Jrers by occupation, to make their tale of bricks without the necessary straw. The trade doe!l' not ask to be entirely relieved from but it ask that the tobacco industry shall not be singled out for legisla tive proscription and persecution above all others. There sense and c<1m.mon decency to be observed in this matter. The poor cigar-maker has rights as well as his more fortunate neighbors Espe cially has he, above all legislative right to rescind, the right to liberty and the pursuitof happiness."

At lleast, here IS one great fact, that many kmds of busmess-tl).e tobacco busmess ill eluded-are at nearly a stand-still," and that very many men of all political creeds, say the reason 1s, No body knows what Congress IS gomg to do w1th the laws touching their business, The sales of !eat, last week, amounted to over Ioo cases seed, go bales Spamsh, and a few hhds of Ken tucky.

A correspondent of the Petersburg (Va ) Rural Messenger wntes: Mr Edt/or-Having attained to some success m the ot fine yellow tobacco, I have constant inqmries made of me by my agncultural fnends for mformatlon m connection w1th this -crop. To save the time 1t would reqmre to answer each separately, I have thought 1t not 1mproper to make a general reply through the columns of the Messenger, more espec1ally as it bas aR extensive circulation throughout the tobacco-growing region in this State and North Carolina, and is generally, as far as I can hear, held in high esteem I have, for the sake of those who have not had the benefit of much practice in raJsmg th1s crop, tried to be as exphc1t as possrble, indeed, to be still more servceable, I hav.e ventured some remarks on the cultivation of tobacco in general. The&e results of my expenence, I subm1t w1th the utmost diffidence, and will be gratified if they pr,ove of ser.vice in advancmg the great interest on wh1ch all others depend, namely, thatojthe ttllcrs ofthe sot/. -ABOUT TOBACCO IN GENERAL But a few years ago tobacco was successfully culti vated m only a few States of the now, according to the Reports of the Department of Agriculture, it is grown m twentv-five States-from Massachusetts to Texas, and from Vllgm1a to Cahforma. In V!Tgma and the adJOmmg States, 1t grows m the highest per fechon. It 1s a paymg crop when successfully grown and properly managed. To' the mexpe1 ienced, the wnter would offer a few practical sugg-estwns. To bacco luxuriates m a uch, qmck soil and h1gh culti vation. The crop usually grown in Virginia is divided mto three vtz Sluppmg, Sttn mred Ftl!ers, and Brzgltt C oal-cured Wrappers and Smokers The first may be g10wn on any good soil, up-land o r alluv1al the latter two on dry, well dramed upland onl y All reqmre thorough preparation of the so1l to msure good crops The work first necessary for th1s c1op IS to burn a suffic1ency of plant land. The old way of burn in g 1 s the, best. Lay down a bed of wood the entire lengtn of the plat to be burned, first raking clean the su1face, and placmg small poles four feet apart to secure the bed of wood W1th hghtwood or kindling wood set th1s bed on fire and let 1t burn till the land is suffictently burned to brown and blacken the surf.i'ce a little, then, w1th or old hoes on long poles pull forw a rd the fire s1x feet, fill up Wltil wood and liurn as before Continue t1ll the whole plat IS burned over. Another mode rs, to rake off the plat and cover w1th brush and set' the whole on fire and bur n the patch at on ce Any mode that wlil secure proper burning will suffice To prepare the bed for sowmg, take off all the brands and coals, but not the ashes, as these act as a man me, then w1th coulters run across the bed each way-crossmg the plowmg, then w1th grub hoes chop fine the s01l, removmg the roots, but not reversmg the sOJI, and make fine, by repeated chop pmgs and rakmg, the seed bed. Sow seed mixed w1th ashes, a tablespoonful to every one hundred square yards, whip over the patch with, brush, or rake over lightly with rakes, and then cover with brush and en clnse Nf'w lands, w1th south or south-east exposure, are best for plant beds Burmng and seedmg may be done any time from November till ut of March, the soonet the better, as the dner the land tbe less burn ing IS requ1red. I have used w1th good results GJ! ham's Tobacoco Fertilizer and Peruvian Guano on plant beds, and would recommend the use of from one hundred to one hundred and fifty pounds to every five hundred square yards, chopped into the bed before sowing The Tobacco Fertilizer is a 1110st capital manure to hurry along the plants of a cold, late season Use th1s as a top-dressmg when the plants are dry. If the plant fly (bug 1t should be called) appear, satu rate rags m kerosene oil and shr these m ground plaster, lettmg them remam m the plaster for some hours, then sow the plaster on the beds, covermg up the plants and every bug will leave. Repeat the application after every rain Plantmgs for yellow tobacco sh culd be made as early as posstble after the I oth of May, the zoth IS soon enough to plant for shtppzng. A few words on the preparation of the s01l. Here there IS a great diversity of opimon and practice. The writer has no pet the01y to support and no new 1deas to mculcate He has succeeded m the mode he offers to the inexpenenced, but does not cla1m 1t supenonty over all others. The world moves, sc1ence advances, and with 1t agricultural knowledge. Lands mtended for tobacco should be fallowed m the fallthis refers to old lands. Haul out and spread domes tic manures while the ground is trozen or dry and plow m dunng winter and spring Wheat straw and tobacco stalks plowed under early to rot are good manures. Of all the commercial fertihzers I have ever tned on this crop, and my experience ts extended, I have,never used any that answered so well er that produced such good results as G1lham's Tobacco Ferhhzer I have grown good crops from land, too poor to pay for cul tivation wtthout the atd offered by ths fertihzer. Use from one hundred to three hundred pounds per acre m the drill. When used m conjunctiOn with farm manures a smaller quantity may be applied Put the land m fine tilth, then mark off with a shovel, plow furrows three feet to three feet four inches a part,. and mto these furrows sow the ferhhzer, then w1th turmng plows, bed the land on these furrows, and to fac1htate the h1lhng cross these beds three feet apart w1th fur rows by a shovel-plow, and the hills are made, except to pat them w1th hoes H1lly lands w1ll seldom admit of th1s cross plowmg, and the beds must be chopped into h11ls. On new ground apply the fertilizer broad cast; I have found 1t to act as well, and for fine yel low to pay better, on new grounds than any other lands The culture is essentially the same for all claases of tobacco. Stir the land up as often as neces sary to pro mete rapid growth of the plants and to keep down grass and weeds To enter mto every detail would lengthen th1s essay much beyond its practical hmits. "Shtppmg" tooacco may be plowed later and worked longer than fine yellow For coal curing we had best sacrifice pounds for color. Top for "shipping" from eght to ten leaves, for coalcuring" from ten to twelve, according in both cases to strength of soil and time of doing the work Keep the plants clean of horn-worms and suckers, and use short smgletrees when cultivating to prevent bru1ses. CUT NO TOBACCO TILL PULLY RIPE. '' Shipping" should be hung seven to nine plants to the stick four and a half feet long Barns should be so constructed as to,contain four, five or six rooms four feet w1de, so that four and a half feet sttcka may fit all ahke. Log barns are beat for coal-curing. All should be bUJlt h1gh enough to contain four firing tiers under joists, covered w1th shingles or boards and daubed close. Fire w1th h1ckory all ncb, heavy ship ping tobacco To persons begmnmg the cultivation of tobacco, I would recommend sun-curing or air-cur ing as the sim_plest of all modes of curing, and the one most hkely to prove successful, On th1s head I will make one suggestion, vtz : place the tobacco on scaffolds near the barn-door so that 1t be readily housed in case of ram. "Bright wrappers and smokers" pay so much bttter than dark tobaccos, that I would advise, when ever practicable, to coal-cure all that npens of a uni form yellow color. To do th1s properly, requires some experience, great care, and much attention. It is impossible to l'.ly down any uniform system or give sppcli]c instructions. General prmciples Will be sug gested to gUide the planter amtd the changeableness of seasons and vanableness of material to be .Operated upon The successful coal-curer IS an artist, and all engaged in the business are experimenters m nature's great laboratory. The details which follow are founded upon ex penence and are gven wtth d1ffidcnce Remember that they refer to mediUm tobacco, and govern your selves accordmglv Don't be m a hurrJ to cut your tobacco bll 1t 1Sfully rtpe. Be careful to select plants of a umform sze, color and quality, putting SIX or seven to the stick Let the plan,ts go from the cutter's hands on to st1cks held in the hands of women 01 boys; and as soon as the sticks are full, place them caefully on wagons and carry them to the barn. Place the sticks on tiers about ten inches a pat t., and regulate the plants on.. the sticks. As soon as the barn 1S filled kmdle small -.fires of coal or h1ckory wood, about twenty fires to a barn twenty feet square, four under each room Coal1_s best, but hckory saplings, chop ped about two feet tong, make a good steatmng heat. AN OLD-FASHIONED TRADE -It IS unnecessary, says an Enghsh paper, to lead up to th subject of th1s ar-1 ticle by any mgemous periphrasis, fqr there are but few trades m the world wh1ch own -an undisputed trtle to be called old fash 3 oned Reckomng by the passage of years, the tobacco trade owns no great anttqmty Its records are not lost m dusty folios, or smothered m a heap of legendary verb1age "\Ve know where tobacco first came from, who brought t w1thm reach of the luxunous, and what 1ts h1story has smce been There ts hardly a smoker, a snuffer, or chewer, whose name has been worth recordmg, who has not figured tl}lle out of mmd m newspaper paragraphs, and II} the off season, when pubhc top1cs flag, and agncultural monstros 1t1es are scarce, the same old anecdotes make the1r appear ance m the pubhc prmts. In th1s way there IS really very little to learn about the tobacco trade-at least no th mg of an anttquanan character. Its old-fashiOned c h ar acter, therefore, does not anse from age, but from the undevmtmg steadmess with which the trade has pursued the same track through all these years of commercial change and actrvity Scores of busmesses have flour 1shed, had the1r day, and gone to the dogs long smce. Others have altered m obed1ence to the fashwn of the times or to the exrgenctes of supply and demand. The tobacco trade alone stands out, a sort of business sole cism, joggrng along pretty much as 1t has done any time these hundred years. It is true some fltghty people make a show of galvamzmg the trade occasionally by a weak -mmded dash mto cheap advertismg or an inven tive genius shmes forth comet-hke w1th a no v elty made from tissue-paper and mild tobacco; but these are mere straws on the stream, soon burned out of s1ght by the tide The trade looks w1th qmet contempt on any such puny attempts at revolution, and sleeps on as before In this respect the tobacco tra for the first four months of the fiscal year endmg June 30, r87o, and r81;I 1870 1871 July-Oct July-()a $2,175,6!14 31 $2,512,092 97 39,152 59 46,988 96 7,'246,79! 21 7,839,815 47 76 1,736 956 fl 29,332 Ml 28 351 27 82 418 36 96,608 73 332,366 38 404 268 46 -=---5.:..,7_89 95 8,095 36 Total $ll,461 ,437 78 $12,673,18 7 73 .....

SOME NEEDED REFORMS. [From the Petersburg (Va.) Index. It can hardly be out of place to point out to-day a few of t!te objects sought by the tobacco trade of this com munity, and of Virginia at large. For the delegation from the tobacco laborers to-day goes to Washington bearing the petition of those most directly i nterested in that manufacture, begging that Congress will act at once toward lessening and !)laking uniform the tax our chief staple That delegation, as is concisely ex pressed in the resolutions creating it, is appointed to ask that the tax be made uniform at sixteen ceuts, and their efforts are to be mainly directed to this one object. Yet, it would be well for the members of the delegation to consider that our tobacco interests labor under many disadvantages besides this one of the unequal and op pressiye taxation. First among these minor evils is the lack of bonded warehouses. Under the enormous tax -enbrmous even if it is reduced to sixteen cents, double the capital really is req_uired for the manufac ture of tobacco. The bonded warehouse is intended to meet this dijficulty, and to allow the manufactured article to be handled, shipped and held as a basis for credit without the pre-jdyment of tax. This beneficient inten tion the whole trade Tec'ognizes. Yet, so far, the law allows bonded warehouses only in New York, Boston, New Orleans;-San Francisco, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Richmond, with the privilege of one remove. To the countless other pointS of shipment of tobacco, no shipment can be made without prepayment of tax. This is so plain a hardship and so plainly falling on the small dealer that it needs no argument 1'he universal desire of the trade is t!wt the law should allow bonded warehouses to be establislud wherever 1/u trade desires them. As it is, tobacco is subject in every direction to harrassing exac tions which result only in depressing the trade, in mak ing rich men richerand poor men poorer, and in multi plying the fees of Goyernment officers without adding one cent to the Government revenues. Let us have bonded warehouses wherever the trade amounts to a certain (and small value), and we will be rid of the op pressive necessity of duplicating the capital required for the trade, we will be rid of double inspecrions, made at the place of shipment and repeated at the place of de livery, and we shall find an impetus giyen to the culture, manufacture, and sale of which will add millions to the Governmentrevenues and give profitable employ to hundreds of employers and thousands of em ployees. The insurance usage is also a hardship upon the tobacco trade, whose folly and injustice it is hard to understand and. impossible to justify. Under recent decisions it is held that tobacco lost by sea or fire or either cause while in must pay its tax to the Government just as if it were still in the hands of its owner. In qther words a shipper must lose his insurance unlesshe insures for the tax as well as the value of his goods ; or, to another expression, be must pay to the Government a tax on property which has ceased to exist. The manifest wrong of this can not fail to strike the most careless observer, and the obvio!.IS need for a now gives the cutters the exclusive privilege of putting a tobacco upon ths market under a sixteen cents tax which, although said to contain all the stems and sold as smoking tobacc, is found to answer satisfactorily for chewing, and is largely used for that purpose instead of plug or twist, because the latter has to pay one hundred cent, mote tax. No wonder that plug manufacturers complain; for this law, in giving the exclusive priv ilege of putting upon the market a tobacco under a sixteen cent tax to one class, is gradually breaking down another cla$S who pay a tax of thirty two cents, and should be corrected at once by the adoption of a law fixing a uniform tax on all tobacco that enters the market for consumption; or, if a graded tax is adopted, it should apply to the material used, whether by cutters or of plug or twist. The same tax on the lame matenal, no matter how manufactured, would be unjust to none. The experience of the Government has shown that a uniform tax on cigars is more easily col lected, more productive, and more satisfactory to the tax-payer. The grading of the tax on plug and twist was abandoned also. Experience has created a ten dency to uniformity of taxation, and it should be applied to smoking tobacco, as it has been to every other kind. There is no more reason for a difference in the tax on the different grades of topacco, than for a different tax on high wines and old Bourbon. Reason enough for uni formity is found in the easily demonstrable fact that the present tax operates to the advantage of one class and the disadvantage of another. One simple test will show that to be the case. Let the proper committee in Con gress see iLthey can get the manufacturers of smoking tobacco to ag ree to a uniform tax of even sixteen cents. W r; venture to assert that they won't do it. They will oppost. any uniform ratE;. It is the duty of Congress to make its laws just as far as possible to all interests. Uniformity of taxation is the way to it as far as tobacco is concerned. Whatever Congress proposes to do about this matter should be done speedily. The present un certainty is depressing the trade very much. The retail dealers and jobbers are afraid to buy more than a few boxes at a time, and men whose usual purchase is one hundred packages at a time now take a half dozen in stead. The revenue is suffering as well. Let th:e mat ter of the tax be settled speedily, and if possible justly, but let it be settled speedly anyhow.

Taking the above table as a basis, and abolishing aU taxes save those on whisky, beer, and tobacco, we should have a total reduction of JJ,?So,ooo which would leave only $t6,zso,ooo to be applied to tariff reductions and would not suit the free-traders. The abolition of all the miscellaneous taxes is, therefore, at present im practicable. Indeed the stamp is the least burdensome and most easily collected..of any at present impoied on the American people. Taking, however, the totalpro posed reduction of the Internal Revenue at $291ooo,ooo and striking off the income tax-estimated by Mr. Sher man, at $6,soo,ooo-and about $8,ooo,ooo from tobacco. leaving the income from that item hs,ooo,ooo, we have left just Jr415oo,ooo to be applied to reduction on other items This would enable us, with the proposed tari1 reduction of $2 r,ooo,ooo, to make the following compari son: Estimated Revenue Customs-----------.-------------.--$zz6,ooo,ooo Internal Revenue.-... -------------__ -I26,ooo,ooo Sale Public Lands, and miscellaneous sources 21 ,ooo,ooo Grand total.-----------------------J10oo,ooo Reduced Revenue.

A!>fOTHER SPECIMEN BRICK.-Another must be added to the long lists of dishonest Government officials dis covered within the past few months. Gen. Daniel S Stanton, who for the last three years has been Collector of tiuternal Revenue for tn Fifth Maryland District, Is now reported to be a defaulter, and was last week t"e moved from. office by the President, who nominated his successor. The amount of the defalcation has not been ::.scertained, but it is believed to exceed $so,ooo. An investigation of his accounts was commenced yesterday by Supervis9r Fulton, and several days must pass before the exact loss of the Government can be ascertained. It is said the defalcation has been covered up for the past two years by false entries. Gen. Stanton served in the Maryland volunteer force during the war, and had the reputation of a good soldier. His bond is said to be comparatively worthless He was arrested in Baltimore and held in $2 s,ooo bail. The latest reports concemin11: the defalcation of Collins, the United Statys Pension Agent in this city, discovered a few weeks ago, are that the deficiency will amount to about $6o,ooo, instead of $zoo oo or $Jo,ooo, as at first reported. The investigation of his accounts at the Treasury Department is not yet completed. TOBACCO IN LoGAN COUNTY, Kv .--Says a local paper : The Logan farmers are preparing to pitch a large tobacco crop. They seem disposed to 'fight it out in this line,' notwithstanding the fact that the bugs and wonns have ravaged their plant beds-for two or three years past." EXTREME PRO'TKCTION IN FRANCE.-France one of the largest purchasers of our tobacco, it is not encouraging to growers to find that the National Assem bly have decided to advance the price of the common kind 25 per cent.. The French Government monopolizes the sale of this article, which gives a gross return of $so,o oo,ooo, leaving a net profit of $36,ooo,ooo to the revenue. It has now been decided to raise the Go:ern ment price from $z to ,$2. 50 per kilogramme (z I-Io The extent to which this may diminish the consumption is, of purely a matter of conjecture ; but it is significant that the advance in price is not expected to realize as large a revenue as if the present demand for tbe fragrant weed continued.
