LIVERPOOL, .c. lht l1lracco NEW YORK, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 4, 1873, ON HIS TB.A VELS. The scamp who some time ago defrauded a number of the trade in this section of the country, and who then hailed fr o m an office in Ann Street, this city, according to the.Ieceipts he gave for subsc, riptions, and which .Jretended to be dated at the office of this journal but were not, appears to be again on his travels and engaged in nefarious calling. We have heard of him in various parts of Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey, and though the amounts obtained do not appear to be large in any one instance, still we -regret exceedingly that our friends should be subjected to the infliction. We are using every effort in our power to cut his career short througn a arrest,, and shall be greatly in debted for any information which may lead to this desir-able consummation. He is represented as a tall man, of light complexion, and his latest alias seems to be H. F. RODGER, although he is not particular about signing the same initials in every case, one correspondent reporting him as H. J. Rogers. Another name he adopts is H. J. NELSON, c.

A manufacturer's ann-ual record is taken from the ledger, hereafter to be kept in the collector's instead of the assesor's office, and compared with his purchases of leaf tobacco as shown by the records of leaf dealers ; when their is an approximate agreement between tne accounts of tobacco accounted for and sold to the The proposition to furnish these record books gratis to is, we think, a commendable one, and differs fro m the practice of the past two years only in the agents manufacturer, nothing further is to be done i when by whom they are to be aelivered.

As operating in this district, so would be the operation of the regulation in all, there being not more than a half dozen leaf dealers in some of our city districts. To make this Wf?rk practicable and agreeable to manu factur e rs and the Revenue Department, there should .]:>e but one depository for these books, and that one t!l.e of. fice of the Supervisors of Revenue. The Supervisors should be the agents for the exchange and collection of the books and for the examination of the annual ac counts of manufacturers, and once the Supervisors have passed upon accounts, subordinate officers, collectors or their deputies, should not be allowed to re-open them; as n1anu facturers do not want to be, and ought not to be, harrassed by frequent investigations. Manufacturers do not object, indeed they prefer,if necessary, to have a critical_ examination of their revenue records once a year, but when that has been made they would also pre fer to be let alone in the interims. The Commissioner has wisely, we believe, provided in the instructions under consid.eration for making as sessments for deficiencies in the office at Washington. This arrangement will secure manufacturers from the harshness or over zealousness of subordinate officers, and is likely to be a gain in many ways ; and if in addi tion to this, Supervisors are invested with the exclusive control of the leaf record books, there can be no rea son to doubt that much satisfaction will be experienced by the -various branches of the tobacco trade under the new dispensation. The Supervisors must in any event, or should in any event, as heretofore, excJtange leaf records among one another; otherwise the country district records can not be made available to the Government, and if they do this they must have charge o( all the records of both town and To leave the interchange to

The papers most uregalar in the ttme of their reaching this office, are the New York ToBACCO LEAF aud the two papers published at L1bertv, Va. The Appeal must do as we do, hope for better thmgs of Uncle Samuel. THE BosTON FIRE.-So far as can be inferred from all accounts to date, the great fire m Boston, wluch broke out on Decoration day, and destroyed so much valuable property in the business part of the city, spared our fuends m the tobacco trade, and spent 1ts fury m consumn:\g the frmts of other's labors. TO PAY Hrs DEBTs.-One ,of the cutest and most characteristic operations we have heard of says the ( Va ) Cll1ztn, was perJJetrated by a fellow in this country a few weeks ago. He was destr0us of paying his debts by going into b;mkruptcy, and being short of the necessary funds for the purpose, he borrowed the amount a fnend, and returned the amount among the debts he owed to be discharged. A NEW LIVERPOOL FIRM.-By reference to our adverUsing columns, it will be seen that Ml". F. W. Smythe, our able LIVerpool corre$pondent, has admitted tp partnership in his busmess, Mr. James Derbyshire Wtlson, and the firm htle w1ll be F. W. Smythe l!c Co. We happen to have met Mr. Wtlson, who has been for some time in the office of our fnend, Mr. Smythe, and can testify to his sterling business quahttes The new firm has our best W1Shes, and will doubtless secure a hberal share of trade patronage, as it now pre sents the energy and enterpnse of youth combmed wtth the conservatism and large experience of maturer years SEIZURE oF FmNE CIGARS -The Collector of the port Loutsvtlle,Ky.,aetzed a portJ.on of the cigar stock of Edw'd Peynado & Co., a few days since, for a"!Jeged fraud ulent entnes At the Galt House stand about $5oo worth of ctgars was setzed, and at the wholesale ware' house m the Louisville Hotel a lot of cigars worth $3,000 shared the same treatment. The ciga rs se1zed were the remamder of the 'three last impcrtations made by Mr. Peynado from Havana, and consisted of the fine!lt brands. They are now stowed in the cellar of the custom house, where, we are told, they will remam until the Government 1S satisfied in the matter. Those who know the firm are confident that, if there IS any thing it IS techmcal and unintentional. '!!CHIGAGO RECREATED -Not a restoration merly, but a recreatiOn our Business Manager assures us Ch1cago 'has vndergone at the hands of her resolute and enter pnsmg Clltzens w1thm the brief space of time that has elapsed smce the awful conflagratwn of October, IS71 1 which cons tgned the fairest and nchest portiOn of th(f city to ashes What were once small and poorly-eon structed stores and residences, hav e been succeeded by the most ornate and 1mposmg structures, and the bmld mgs which grace the prmcjpal thoroughfares and busi ness sectwns of the ctty., are m many mstances unusally spacious and attractive Our fnends m the ctgar and tobacco trade have evmced thetr charactensttc taste and in the selectJOn of their present and future C{uarters, the tern tory occup1ed by them embrac mg the 1:-.:st locahttes m the busmess part of the city, bemg bounded on the n'orth by Water Street, on the south oy Randolph, on the East by Lake, anii on the writ by Lasalle. In thts locality and vicmtty Mr. Graff found the gre:j.ler part of our staunch old friends and patrons resident in that truly remarkable-ctty, and what IS equally:, or even more fortunate and sattsfactory, found them, each and all, with every sign of indtvtdual and collective prospenty about them, and as ready and wilhng as ever to extend the1r accustomed favors to THE LEAF and its ever welcome representallve. BuSINESS AFFAIRS.-It affords us pleasure to announce the new firm of Gunther & Stevenson, tobacco factors and general commisston merch01.nts at N ew'Otleans. As 'Will readily be mferred by many of our readers, th1s firm ts an offshoot of, and under the protecting. regts of the well-known tobacco commtsswn house of L W Gun ther, Esq., of Baltimore, who Is the father of Mr M H. Gunther of New Orleans, and from these favorable cir cums tances, not less than the busmess capa:tty of both members of the firm, 1t 1s safe to anttctpate a success ful and prosperous career for them in the field they have chosen Though a new firm, the l.msmess to which the young men ts an old one, It havmg been establtshed before the war by Mr. L. W. Gunther, under the firm name of Gunther & Rodewald When the war de stroyed, for the ttme bemg, the tobacco trade of New Orleans and other Southern markets, the finn of Gun ther & Rodewald d1ssohed partnershtp and came North but not, however, it may be saicllto the1r stgnal credtt, until they had settled every dollar of thetr Western and other tobacco obligations, and not in con federate scnp, but tn good hard gold and greenbacks. In this c1ty each of these gentlemen formed connec tiOns m wh1ch they became very favor a bly known Mr. Gunther jommg, or rather assoc1atmg htmself with Mr. F. W T01.tgenhorM, now of No 68 Broad st. Wtth the return. of pe.ace the New Orleans house was revived by Louts Gunther, brother ofL. W. Gunther, and by htm very sat1sfactonly conducted, unttl a 'shor*tme smce, when, as previously mentiOned in these columns, he d1ed, and left the bl!smess wtthout a head, to wh1ch Mr. M H Gunther has succeeded. Mr. Stevenson had been 1cl'entified wtth the establishment, and after the death of the proprietor assumed control until the firm of Gun ther.& Stevenson was orgamzed. We bespeak for the young firm a contmuance of all the old patronage of the house, with as large an mcrease of new busmes as they can find time to manage. We note sales of wrappers an" d fillers and an 1m proved mquiry for good small wrappers for fancy work The market may be descnbed as bemg moderately good for leaf of quality, but qmte mdifferent to the negati'le attractions of other Jescnptions. Lugs are singularly slow of sale, as compared with the demlVld of previous seasons, but the cucumstance ts chiefly due to the early and free inquiry for Western vaneties, and the backwardness of shippers. Dtrect ad ices from Rtchmond show increased breaks and offenngs, but net a correspondmg Improvement m ch1tracter of assortments. B1ddmg there 1s hvely, and even eal'!r for desirable the minor gr,ades being more or less neglected the same as here. As was to be expected from the weather of the past five or stx weeks, the "fly" mdulged hts perntcwus pro pensities in the plant buds to a considerable, though not, of course, trremedtable extent. Destructtve as. 1t has sometimes been, the fly, we belteve, has yet suc ceeded in matenally curtatlmg productiOn, so that, ll the season be prop1t10us, we shall probably have a full crep of tobacco this ylar despite the efforts 1t has thus far made to prevent it. From abroad there ts no news of an encouragmg na ture London advices alone, bemg shghtly prom1sing, and these only to the effect that there was a httle more I!lquiry for Umted States tobacco dunng the first half of May German and Spamsh news as gleaned from 'pn vate letters reported to us, IS even less prom1smg m one or two particulars. Seed Leaf-.n. moderate busmess only was done last week m seed lea( Wah the exceptton of a few small parcels, m all2oo cases, of new 1872, 't"ltsconsin at @6c, mostly for the West Indies, the sales were princi pally confined to 1871 Connecttcut wrappers, of wh1ch kmd some 500 cases were taken at 45@6o. Bestdes the above, so cases of I87o Connecticut and about 150 cases sundnes on pnvate terms changed hands Of busmess for the month of May the c1rcular of Messrs J. S. Gans & Son speaks as follows :-There has been a sltght improvement owing to the fact that manu facturers have bought more freely, and although we have no large transactions to mention the prospects for trade is more cheenng. It must be admttted that the residue of the crop of I87I, and the whole of that of 1872, contains not enough real fine tobacco to supply the home demand until the crop of 187 3 \\til be m workmg and we believe, whate,vel" may be the final result of the low medmm and common grades, that every case of fine wrappers of the crop of 1871, and all that ts really fine m the crop of 1872, wtll be very much needed The transalltions in new crop have been hmtted to 300 cases Oh10, and 6oo cases Wisconsin, both at 6@6 all for Gtbra ta r and the West Indteo, 300 cases Connecticut seconds and fillers for the VI' est and 300 cases Pennsylvania for New Orleans and Sad F1anc1sco Sales of all growths, crop of I87o, 6oo cases; Connecticut and Massachusetts crop of 1871, r,zoo cases; New York, crop of 187 r, 400 cases ; Pennsylvama, crop of r871, zoo cases; Oh10, crop of 1871,400 cases; Wisconstn, crop of 1871, zoo cases; Pennsylvama, crop of r872, 300 cases; Oht o crop of r87z, 300 cases, Wtsconsm, crop of 1872, 6oo cases, Connecticut and Massachusetts, crop of 187z 300 Export of seed leai smce January 1, r873, 7,905 cases. Same ttme last year, 36,243 cases Export of seed leaf from Baltimore smce January r, I873, 235 cases. Sales m the mtenor are reported to a moe sati s factory extent In Connecticut and Massachusetts qutte a fatr busmess has been done, mostly though m cheap goods We notice moderate sales m Ohio with a sprinklmg here and there of a better parcel. In Wtsconsm there has been an acllve ousmess done, prices rangtng 2c. for fillers and to sc. for wrappers We are mclined to thmk;that the bulk of the crops of the latter States wtll finally be dtsposed of m harmony wtth and proportion ate to the rates of hght Kentucky lugs : There 1s, un6ler prevallmg cucumstances, no prospect for htgh pnces for low graded seed leaf, but it is in our opinion equally certam that still more rumous figures, such as ant1c1pated by some, are not hkely to be established. The Janesvtlle (Wis ,) a well mfofiod that Per, uv1an guano mJures the soli, may I ra1se whatsoever crop I choose Spamsh-Havana has been qutet; with sales of only 300 bales at and ex)nbitmg but one feature of woment, namely, a highe1 range of pnces than the usual recent average, a fact due, 1t 1s to be presumed, to the higher character of the stock sold. Wtth the ex traordmanly large proportiOn of medium and common sorts in our present supply of fillers, full rates for all destrable goods would seem to be one of the mdtsput able probabihttes of the near future Messrs. Gans & Son, report :-Owing to one of our !arge c1gar manufacturing firms havmg latd in thetr annual supply of Havana fillers, the sales have been m excess of those of the preceding month In the aggregate the transactions have been ltmttea to 5,500 bales, otherwise our market has offered no change. The sates of Yara have been 300 bales. Messrs Rader & Son remark:-Of Havana l'obl\cco s,soo bales were sold at well mamtained pnces for de strable grades, hut somewhat lower on commoner sorts. Of yara 300 bales were taken mostly from JObbers. The ctrcular of Messrs. M. Rader & Son, observes.Although there has been somewhat better demand for this article durmg last month, a full revtval of this trade can not as yet be reported, Pnces for fine and good oid crop are well mamtained, but m new ,.crop, there is but very httle domg and thts only at very low figures I ManufacturedThere has been a fair demand for Cavendtsh tobacco reported, wllh possibly a sltght m crease of sales for in tenor trade and consumptiOn. The local mqutry was not percepttbly dtfferent from what tt has latterly 6een nor, so far as we have heard, was the call for shipment. Both for c1ty and foretgn trade t1 ans fers of the average bulk and eharacter were made, those for the former probably preponderatmg. Our export trade wtll not and can not be what it 9ught to be unt1l our merchants are enabled to enJOY the factlittes of an export bonded warehouse. Every day that the effort is made to do l:usiness w1thout th1s necessary adjunct to commerce, confirms dealers m the optmon that 1t must sooner or later be granted to them ; or tf not, that It IS scarcely worth wh1le to try to preserve th1s trade to the country And such, we learn from most unimpeachable authonty, 1s the vtew now entertame!!l by a greater num ber of manufacturers thon could have been enumerated a while ago. We shall recur to thlS subJect at length m our s'!cceedmg issue Smokmg-A regular, though not active demand, for smokmg tobacco IS reported as the result of the week's movement; in th1s branch of business. Stocks are vaned and inv1tmg m the hands of the wholesale deal. ers, and the tightness of money alone prevents small dealers, m town and country, from profitmg to the full measure of the1r asptrations by the opportumty thus afforded.

When Columb us landed at H1spamola he saw the natives beneath the palms and 'the mangoes uckng through long reeds and puffing aromatic fumes out of the1r m.ouths antr nostnls. Others were seen who, havmg twirled the tobacco leaves into a cylindrical form, truncated at one end and acute at the other, puffed as they strolled to look at the new arnvals. That was a savage smoker' s paradioe. Fancy a smoking car, gomg from the Htrald buildmg to Harlem, embowered in trop1cal plants, w1th luxunous couebes to stretch upon, and smart little colored boys, dressed say in Arab cos tume, to fumtsh the smoker with a ltght, refill his ehi bouk, or hand him a fresh ctgar, when the orchestra neaF the dnver paused for a moment in breathing forth deltcwus melody. If the smoker felt a htt\e too languid the Negro boy would bathe his temples with eau de Co logne from the fountam m the centre. The dnver would never swear at draymen on the track ahead of him, and the-conductor would hand the smoker his change out, a three cent piece, on a s1lver salver The car would be started and halted by a little cb1me of s1lver bells. Every known brand of superfine tobacco, from the m1ldest Latakia to the most pungent Perique, and c1gars from M:amla or Havana could be had for the askmg.
