As and New Year's fall upon our regular publication day thi s year, we are compelled to issue our paper this week one day earlier-on Tuesday-and thus deprive our columns of some of that variety of Iftatter for which our readers feel they have a right to l ook. We are thus forced to go to press wirhout sev eral valuable market reports, among others that from Cincinnati. Some of those appearing next will thus be 'somewhat stale, but our excuse must be circum stances over which we have no control." OUR DIRECTORY AT THE WEST. We forwarded to-Cincinnati, Louisville, st. Louis and Chicago last week, a of the latest edition o Cour DIRECTORY, and our friends in those cities will now be able to supply themselves this interesting and valu able work. While our book is not all we could wish, we may safely assert that we have successfully, according to the common testimony of the trade at the East; laid the basis for a very important undertaking. Our next issue, which we hope to present to the trade early in I87.4, will contain many improvements-notably the classification of all bninches of the tobacco interest in a certain State under a single heading and not scattered through the book as in the present edition. By the latter .arian. gement, we have brought together all the toba. cco manufacturers undt;r one heading; all the cigar manufacturers under another, and the remaining div i sions of the trade under a third. In practice, however, we find this to be too complicated for ready comprehen sion, and shall, therefore, in our edition of the DiRECTORY for 1874-75, follow the of inserting the in alphabetical order, and make each.State complete in it' self. We 11ave taken particular pain's with those portions of the j ssue devoted to the Western trade, and doubt not but our friends in thnt section will find q1em measurably complete and satisfactory. ') A LITTLE COMMON SENSE. ------As. i pendant to our remarks last week on the subject of the injustice of making the luckless dealers in, and ( manufacturers of tobacco pay so large a proportiOn of the national revenue, while the rest of the community ingloriously shirked their duty in this respect, we. print the following sensible remarks frow the New York World. The proposition to abolish imposts so easily collected those levied by Qteans of stamps (other than tobacco and. spirit-stamps) is certainly .one of the -FRED'K De BARY c (SUCCESSORS TO DE BAR! & XLING), 02 and 50 New Streets, New York.

Smythe, Tobacco Comm1ssion Merchant: In the Dock retuma annexed it will be seen that the stock of the Un1ted States tooacco in the Warehouses here on the rst inst. was I9,12I hhds agamst 2o,oo7 hhds, at same tte last year, exhibitmg a decrease of 9,886 hhds, which is to be accounted for as a result of reduced 1m ports during the past ten months, but uot as an ind1cation of greatlymcreased consumption, which, on reference to Board of Trade returns to ut October, as below, appears to be only 2 65 per cent, more than the quantity taken for home use in corresponding period of 1871. The supply in the two ch1efports m the Umted Kingdom was as follows: Liverpool, 2,548 vi; I,786 vs; 7,072 kl; 6,328 ks; mds, total I9 121.

All the stnps and dry leaf made from the 187r crop and received at this port (except 18oo hhds) have been inspected, but on examinatiOn of sample s some parcels do not appear to equal, in point of dryness and sweetness, the imports put up from the crop of 187o. Tbts remark, however, can only apply to parcels prized before the wh1ch commenced m the early part of May. It is further noteworthY' that more of this year's receipts are of the spinmng sorts, and the less of them are suit able for cultmg purposes, wbtle there is a remarkable abse nce of bright colory tobacco. Throughout all Octo ber the transactions in th1s tobacco market have been of more than 01dmary magnitude. The stock of having become matenally reduced, and almost dispro portionately dearer than le af, cu stomers showed a decid ed diSpositiOn to supply themselves with the latter_, generally speakmg, sa!es have been large and at fuller prices for stnps, moreover, although pnnted quotatwns for leaf are not higher, they are p1 acllcaiJy stiffer.

Western leaf has had but a moderate amount of attentiOn ; there are, however, numerous inqumes for Mediterranean classes and bright home descnptions; stnps continue in good demand and continue to sell at full pnces. V1rgmia leaf has been fairly sought arter ; bright sorts bring extreme rates; sUips, m consequence of being held at extreme limits have been but httle dealt m.

WisCONSIN ToBAcco.-There seerr.s to be some move ment in the I872 yteld of W1sconsin seed leaf. As to the quahty thereof a lively d1fference of opinion is man ifested. The WISconsin growers complam ol the con duct of certain dealers in dep1 ec1ating the character of the crop for selfish purposes If this is true, all the growers have to do 1 s to refuse to sell to the parties m question. They w11l find many houses here who will purchase the1r goods honestl y at their full Our own opmion, however, is that the growers have peen humbugged, as the dealers mentiOned-one of the most respected of our city houses-are quite incapable of the conduct charged. TOBACCO AND THE JESUITS.-The learned society which in the reign of James I. valiantly defended to bacco in the Antr-Misocapnus, observes an English co temporary, st11l compnses a large number of votanes of "the herb." The rector of the Jesutts M1ssion in England, Father C--, IS perhaps the greatest orator of the order, and the most Immoderate snuff-taker. It is remarkable to see the consumption of scented Scotch snuff which this intel l lectual and laborious man manages to consume during a conference, and the way in which each snccess1ve pmch produces a new corus cation of ingemous combinations of thought. What ever may be said agamst the J esu1ts, nom: Will allege that they are a dull, lazy, or stuptd soc1ety; and the consumption of strong tobacco in its most pungent ferm by the commander in England does not detract from the learnmg and whtch are h1s character istic attributes. AN INVRTEJII.ATB Sl'IUFF-TAKER.-Says a wnter in Cope':. Tobalcc Plan/ "All anthropologtsts remember the late venerable Mr. John Crawford, F.R.S. who for ,o many years was the persisltent Prestdent of the Ethno logical Society. He waa an enormous consumer of acotch 5nuff, and told us that he never had a snuff -box in his hfe. Both his waiStcoat were lmed w1th chamois leather, and filled with htghly-dried Scotch snuff ofwhtch, perhaps, an ounce or two was in each pocket. This he would pour mto his nostrils by the handful. He died at the age of eighty six, personally respected for hia brightness and cheerfulness by all h1s friends-even those who was oppo.;ed to h1m on many subjects. It is only right to say that the wnter incurred odtum and con tempt on one occasion from lh1m for having inadvertently offered a pinch of brown rappee. "Str, I desptse a man whose brain is so weak that brown rappee can stimulate il." ToBACCO IN 16o6.-Says a quaint writer of this periA. Tobacco Mayor of Liverpool. 'Ve don't mean a Mayor composed, or manufactured, of the fragrant weed, but one who m It as a means of hvelihood Mr. Edward Samuelson, of the firm of Samuelson & P1ke, 54 Hanover Street, Liverpool, was recently elevated to the mayoralty of that flourishmg town. Of the auspicious event, Cope's Toba1co Plant, under the title "Tobacco in Htgh Places," thus gentally dilates : Smce our last issue, tobacco has reCf:IVed a fittmg recognitwn in the h1ghest honor the town of Liverpool can bestow: Mr. Edward Samuelson, representative of the tobacco craft, has been elected to the CIVIC chatr. As our modesty will not allow us to assume that the electiOn was designed as a tnbute of admiration to the "weed," we look upon the Corporati on as entertainmg an angel unawares. Somebody will some day write somethmg worth readmg about Influence, and as Mayor Samuelson's mfluence can be exerc1sed only for good, we look forward to the months of his power with hvely antic1pat10n of his leaving a bright example to shed lustre on that somethmg which somebody w1ll some d::.y compo se Suppose h1s Worshtp were to introduce smoking mto the Council Chamber of \he loc al Parliament!

Such thmgs have been done, and w ould not have been done If C o un cilmen had b ee n blowing fragrant, heaven asptring cl o uds mstead Q E D Mr. John Murphy, Secretary oi the Ratepayers' AssociatiOn, m1ght not be exhilarated by a report of thts kind : "The Town held its adjourned monthly me etmg on Wednesday. After five hours' smoking, a further adjournment was voted by consent" Or, "At the weekly meeting of the Improve:nent Com mtttee, etght hours were o ccupted m the endeavor to select cigars for the annual excursion of members and their fnends Mr. Raynor, the TownClerk, who attended the s yrnposmm to affC?rd the Commtttee hts ad vice and assistance, is of opmion that the average con sumption by each member present was thirteen. Home made HenryClays, and warranted Cuban Partagas, with English and American Regalias, were in great favor, but the Committee declined to dec1de questiOn of choice until further tnal, whtch was arranged to be made at the next meeting. The Chairman left suddenly; and Alderman --, who took the vacant chair, was sh01tly afterwards earned out and tesuscttated at Eberle's Alexandra Hotel-' as is hts custom of an afternoon.' Nevertheless, the ratepayers might, m the long run, find the Committee's cigar-bill less expensive than Its improvements The new Mayor mtght also use his influence to con fer upon the studious public the permiSSion to smoke, snuff, and chew in the Free Ltbrary. The Curator of the Museum would have pleasure in preparing the mull& and p1pes of the Mayer Collection for general use. The Smoking People would then flock to W1lliam Brown Street "in thetr thousands," as the Odentes, D1lkites, and other Bedlamites express it. Merely 'to 1magine the delirious ecstasy of taking a pinch out of the Et trick Shepherd's mull, or smokmg the commonest Shag m the pipe of the penultimate Chocktaw, is a dehght beyond the average plea,ure of life. The world mtght stand in mute but approvmg adflliration at the specta cle of (Mr. Alderman Picton's puffing of a two-foot Broseley, which would greatly assist him in the loving contemplation of the Blue Laws of Connecticut. Colo nel Stebel, smokmg a damty cigarette, or Major Bous field consuming one of "those cigars" which Marie Wtlton used to tell us about, while those veterans were puzzhng over Jomml on the Art of War, would be a sight for the gods. Or, again, in the matter of dinners; now that Mr. Lynn, is no longer among us to make his unnvalled turtle soup, and 1t is not one of the first duties of the Mayor of Liverpool to encourage and dispense that soul wsp1ring compound, hts 'Vorship mtght economi cally and pleasantly subs t1tute tobacco sederunts for the awkward, stiffiy formal dmner parties which !]ave ceased to be jolly ever since Gardner was Mayor, m the Mtddle Ages. 'fh1s IS the kmd of commumcatlon we shall be happy to receiv e from his worship : "The Mayor requests the company of the Edttor of Cope'f Tobacco Plant at a Smoking Party at the Town Hall on Fnday evemng next at seven o'clock," The invitation would be all the more welcome if accompanied by a card of thts sort .-MENU.

The concession mtght be opposedwhat great reform was ever unopened ?-but the objectors could not he numerous. If such a tara avrs as a non-smoking reader ever d1ps his beak m thP. fountam of knowledge in Wtlham Brown Street, he would be sure to object, as to be m iseable is the normal conJi tion of an Antt-Tobacc01te; and he knows no enJoy ment save m seemg others as miserable as himself. Therefore it Is ,that he (croaks-" Put out your pipes I" At all events the Library Committee might prov1de a separate room for smokers. If this were done we would publish the 'Tobacco Plant' weekly dunng the period of his Worship's mayoralty, and so provide interestmg and pleasant hterature of a congenial kmd. If that is not sufljcimt temptation, we don't know what stronger inducement to out. We shaiJ watch his Worship's career with mterest; and in concluston, we congratulate a brother Tobacco-man on his elevation to a position which he is sure to dignify and adorn.

The tobacco houses are made so that they can be closed up tightly, or small narrow side and end doors can be thrown open to apmi.t more air if need be. New beginner5, however, often put their tobacco into buildings entirely unsuited to the curing of the leaf.

PRENTICE, General Agent, Near the western extremity of the Island of Cuba, on the southern coast, we find the most fragrant tobacco in the world. Within a space of seventy-three miles long and eighteen miles wide, grows the pl:mt that stands as eminent among tobacco plants as the lordly Johannis berger among the wines of the Rhine. In this favored spot, long before Columbus was born, there dwelt an Indian Cacique, loved by his subjects; for him they constructed a dainty hut, built him a log canoe, and wove him a hammock, wh:re he swung at his ease, un touched by mosquitoes, untrO"Ubled by the rise and fall of stocks, or unmoved by fatal indulgence in railroad speculations. His aerial garment of coarse cotton knew but one cut, and his mind was not worried by question of sackcoat or pegtop pantaloons. The coo ing of ringdoves in groves of palms was not than the voices uf his wives, and a copy of "Whately's Logic" having never reached the island, argument was unknown Still the Cacique was not happy; something was wanting to fill th e cocoanut bowl of lime or lemon ade. Was it a spoonful of rum? No! It was a gen tle narcQtic ; not stimulant, that he needed. He was unhappy; he could not find it In the unusual state Of activity to which his mind was thus aroused, his atten tion one lovely morning was awakened to the fact that a weed that had for a long time been growing around his hut finally threatened to completely cover it up, unless an exertion were made for its removal. He therefore calleq together many of his faithful subjects, and bid them tear it up root and branch, and utterly deliver the ground adjacent to his habitation. The men went towork w it h a will, and soon it was torn up and thrown in a large pile to wither and waste away. TIT FOR TAT.-Musi a mal!l who a widow cure and strip tobac. co.

But when we propose to be responsible for the Inspection, the origina l sample mus t show:conclusive ly that it has not been culled and is just as we delivered it to the hands of the auc tioneer : We always advise farmers not to,'nes t tobacco' and if it becomes necessary in winding up a crop to put good and lugs in the same hogshead, we advise them' to put them each to them selves, and state to board buyers how much of each quality is in the hogshead. We have appointed our own inspectors and selected them NEW YORK. with reference to integrity Weeks passed; the weed, dried up by the tropical sun, tumed from green to a shade of delicate brown pleasant to look at. It happened that the wife of the Cacique, regarding its dry leaves, thought they would make a pleasant bed for her lord and master, and bring in g armfuls into his hut, soon arranged them to suit his recumbent tastes. The Cacique, hanging in his ham mock, watched his with wondering eyes : her task completed, the exertion he thus made caused him to sink into a slight slumber. In dreams, he wandered through palm woods, watching the brilliant -plumaged birds, and drinking iu the perfumed air with rapturous seusations of bliss; at last he came to a cavern where stood a lovely woman, wearing lily flowers in her dark hair, while all around her a light blue cloud diffused a slightly aromatic flavor, stimulating the iadulge in deepest thoughts fancies; soothing, tranquil izing the Cacique until he felt as if he walked on roses, fed on cocoanuts, and heard only the waters of distant f o untains, and melodious notes of birds. But one cloud thicker than the rest blew around his head; he sneezed; he awoke. Still, in his aroused moment, the light blue cloud was around him an d looking towards his hut, he saw two of his wives hastening "'ith fear in their features, toward his habitation; from it poured forth the blue smoke, growing thicker each moment.
