THE REPORT OF THE SUB-COM 1 tMITTEE OF WAYS A!fD MEANS The Report o the Sub Coouui4 of W ap1 and on the subject of the tobacco tax, which with the aid of a Supplement sheet we recently made public with its to the CoUlmittee o,f '\Vays and Means, was a document of uncommon merit. It fai led of adoption after it was submitted, for the that long before its completion it was decided that there should be no change at th i s session in the rates of tax on the manufactures of tobacco. The members who prepared this report l abored under the disadvantage of knowing their work would be disap proved by the majority of the Committee of Ways and Means on the ground of inexpediency, and by a portion of the trade in whose interest they advocated a reductioll of the taxes, on account of the derangement to business which a change in the tax-rates would produce unless effected as soon as proposed. Bu t they did not, it appears, allow this discouraging prospect to affect their industry or zeal. In the face of thts and other impediments they continued their labors without abate ment, embracing in their investigations nearly every thing of interest to tobacco-growers and manufact urers, and as a result or their persisteRcy and diligence the Govern ment and tobacco interest both are put in possession of a volume of facts that otherwise might not have been collated, and that hereafter will be of great service in the of legislation to the requi rements of the revenue and the tobacco trade. The aim of the Report is to show that. the present taxes on tobacco and cigars, but especially on the former, are too high; being oppressive both to the producers and the manufacturers of tobacco. The rt!port discusses, however, other phases of the tax question; some of them, we think, with less ability, or, perhaps we should say, discrimination, than is shown in considering .the oppressiveness and inequality of the tax. Thus, in commenting on the shifting within a few of the burden of the tax from sections of the country heavi l y fre i ghted to sections lightly affected, nei ther the cause of the change, nor the assumed advantage resulting from it, is indicated. In the same counection;moreover, reference is invid i ously made to the fact that the debt ot the country is held, untaxtd, chiefi.J in the Eastern States; much less of it in the Wes tern, and scarcely any at all in the S outh." To this qualified insin uati o n several pertinent responses might be made if d ee med advisable. We shall only remark that the committee could not have been immindful of the fact when making that allusion that the havi n g of a debt t o hold is a misfortune that might arid ought to have been averted; that the West and South were not the privilege of holding as much of it as they chose, and that it is a commenda ble thing, since the holding of it somewhere was made necessar v 1hat a section of. the rountry was found in the hou; of need and able to hold the larger portion of it : Z.U.f Tobacco.

Lynchburg ( Va ) ;{uty 3 I, 1876.-EDJTOR TOBACCO LEAF -I thougltt I would wnte to you from tb1s large tobacco-growing section of Vtrgmta, and g1ve you the prospects of the growing crop. We had the most protracted d routh in this section since the year 1845, and some even go back to I 838; in many respects thts drouth has been more disastrous than the one m 1845' (on account of the intense heat) to the growmg crops of corn, tobacco and vtgetalales. The early crops. such as wheat, oats and, grass, wh1ch were nearly all matured before the dry weather set in, were good. For s1x or seven weeks the ground has been intensely hot and dry, for there has been no ram, except m small localittes, for that length of ume. The early Spring was cold and the first tobacco plants were nearly all destroyed by tbe ms e cts, and those resown were generally too small to plant before the drouth set m, and consequently m th1s State not over one-half crop was set out before the dry weather commenced and scarcely any since, as it was too dry and hot to water and plant-very little has been planted since Much of that which was planted has d1ed m the hill. I have seen plants 12 tnches high dead and dying from the excessive heat and dryness. Under these Clrcumst!l.nces, I put our Vugima crop at one-half. I have traveled some myseLf and consulted with the planters from all sections of our State and all agree with me, except wtth. a secuon of the State near the mountains where there has been partial rains. We have had some good rains wtthin the last three days aAd I waited for it to ram before I wrote this letter, it will take good seasonable weather from this time out to make a half crop.

AUG. 9 THE TOBACCO MARKET. DOMES riC. NEw YORK, AugustS The footmgs fo.r the week 1ndtcate a fatr l y acuve bus iness m the tobacco market. For Wcstem leaf the de maud was, as usual. ch1efly for Regu; account, and the sales aggregated, as reported, about I ,ooo hogsheads, whtch IS a substanllal exh1btt for the commencement of the month. We note the absence of cutters from the market, and ltght sales to manufacturers, but jobbers operated wnh average freedom. The home trade on the whole, not1ceablv dull, and but for ll:he transactiOns of the Regie buyers-there would be httle worth men tionmg to report. Just what 1s the cause of the apathy in the home trade IS difficult to determine, un less, for one thing, 1t can be satd the home buyers are ant1c1pat ing more favorable terms through the fullness of re ceipts. But this conJecture, even 1f entertamed, w?uld be but a poor attempt at a solut on of the matter, smce shippers do not appear to be mfluenced by the receipts, nor any other Clrcum.tance, apparently, except the range of pnces, wh1ch now seems sattsfactory to them, as, for aught we have observed, it also IS to buye rs for domestic use. The purchases m the Western matkets for home account probably afford the true explanat ion of the seeming lethargy here Rece1pts continue hberal, but so do exports, of one kmd and another, and 1f the la1ter are kept up to the late month l y averages, stocks will not largely accumu late at the seaboards, even 1f the former reach by the end of the season, as 1s now sometrmes '13o, ooo, and, possibly, 1 4o,ooo h ogsheads. That, owever, is the uncertain element in the case. The for the French contract are satd to amount already to two-thirds of the reqUirement for that purpose; Bremen has taken over 8,ooo hogsheads wh1ch, w1th only seven months of the year el apst>d, IS a pretty full complement, viewed w1th reference to the annual average-I2,ooo or IJ,ooo hogsheads-of that market; and the other European buyers-Reg1es and open markets-have all been purchasmg latterly with more or less liberahty, and 1t 1s, consequently, not imposs1ble for exports to fall off somewhat, m whtch event stocks must accumulate if r eceipts contmue as full as at present. Messrs Sawyer, Wallace & Co. report:-Western Leaf -The sales reported amount to 998 hhds, but 1t is supposed thlt about half of thts sold last month and not reported till now, and the market ha, been apparently quiet We note 34 to manufacturers, IIS to JObbers, and S46 to shippers, mostly to Regte buyers, w1th a few lots for Bremen. lst week 2d week Jan __ 473 I,o68 Feb __ 2S6 645 March 300 694 ApnL 947 May_x,382 I1274 June_ 192 946 Ju1Y--73I 862 Aug._. 998 Sd week. 720 66z 847 936 2,246 470 1,348 4th week 792 345 476 1,934 2,457 412 4.0S9 5th week 347 Total. 3 2 soo s,ooo 4,8oo S,soo 3,200 7,oo o 99s The cucular of Messrs. M. RaJer & Son observes:Kentucky Tobacco-The of th1s season's crop seems now to be settled to that effect, that in the South ern secllons but a small crop 1 s set out, and that 1ts quahty wtll much depend on a favorable season, wh1ch so far has not be en very proml!ung. The previOusly reported firrpness of pnces has been fully mamtamed, and substanl!al grades of leaf are held h1gher, as the supply is but hmited The demand dunng last month has been heavy, as exporters, and particularly Regie buyers, showed a d1sposlllon to secure all that w a s deemed su lt able, takmg about 6,ooo hhds, wllule to the home trade only about r,ooo hhds were sold. The cucular of Messrs D J. Gart11, Son & Co., states:-We have to record an active market dunng the past month, the sales reachmg a total of 7,ooo hhds. Transactions were restricted mainly to two demands-France and Italy-the former t2kmg the largest propor tion. Outs1de trade IS yet qu1le langutd, though at the close of the month 1t was somewhat more pron.ising, and glVmg s1gni of increased business dunng the present moDth. Several httle l ots of lugs and leaf were taken up for the Mediterranean :and the North of Europe. Stnctly German types are in small supply, and transactions m consequence rather c1rcumscnbed. Bremen sh1ppers, takmg advantage of the known defi Ciency of decided leaf in the crop, have been ltberal competitors at Western breaks. Home buyers d1d but httle dunng the month. New Orleans sold nearly 4,ooo hhds, princ1Fally Regie account. The general crop ac counts from the growing distncts to latest dattts are of such character as to confirm estimates of a short planting m the aggregate, and to justify the 1mpress1on that the extent of tbe croj) under cultivation in the distncts wtll hardly reach threefourths of a hght aver age. In the Clarksville and Western 'districts a half crop is now regarded as an outside estimate, and from Tennessee our advices lead us to infer that the area under culnvat1on shows a larger defic,ency tbau m Ken tucky. The cutting-tobacco counties are satd to have secured an average planting In the absence of complamt from Indtana and Ilhno1s we are led to that the crop cond1tions m those States are favorable, and that they have secured an average plantmg. latest mformallon from M1ssoun represents the crop Sit uation as less than was md1cated durmg the early part of the month, and late estimates pomt to a result about equal to the crop of I87S It IS our opm IOil, judgmg from our present stand-pomt of observa tlon, that, wltb favorable weather, cond1t1ons from now out, two-thirds to three-fourths of an average Western crop wtll be made-The sales o( the month were d1s tnbuted as follows.-Export, 6,I27 hhds, manufacturers, 632 do, jobbers, 7 I do; var10us, 170 do.

The Western markets, wh1ch are reported as considerably htgher than ours, have had the i r vanous fluctuatiOns dunng tke month, but close some what off from their h1ghest penod. New Orleans sold several Important lots for France and Italy at, as reported, better figures than ruling here. The accounts of the growmg crop are of a coJJfllcting nature and It is yet rather difficult to determine m how far too coptous rains m some places and too excessive heat and drouth m others have mjured the same. The subsequent weather wJII, tn a great measure:, dec1de tfns quesuon, and 1f the same should only be moderately favorable a three-fourth average crop would not be to0 h1gh an estimate.

In the absence of good assortment of old tobaccos the demand for home trade continues more or less to supply Hljmed1ate wants, w1th a d1spostl10n on the part of dealer to defer purchases until more of the 1875 crop is being off ered by stnpped samples.

Manufactuted-There has been some actiVIty in this department of trade since our last, a.nd better pnces have been realized. An observer writes us as follows. "I would report a good demand for 1 I-inch bright quar ter pounds and Iz-mch. Nearly every thmg low -pnced was taken up as soon as offered. Such goods would still me e t w1th ready sale. The d e mand seems to be for goods at 3S@45 c for II-tnch and goo d to fine quarter pounds and fine bnght pounds. 'For export there have been some good orders whtch were not entirely filled, owmg to the advance in tob a cco and parties b em g hmtted with respect to price. Some very common goods were quitted at a l o w pnce, about 300 packages. It IS smgular that our Connecticut merchants Will not antiCIpate the trade that always comes m July and August, and have stocks to store and sell. For the last three years the trade has been gettmg away from here, an'd 1t 1s the fault (no denying it) of our merchants m not providmg for the of the1r customers, thereby dnv mg them elsewhere."
