From all sources we are in receipt of communica ticns rendering praise of our new ToBACCO TRADE DIRECTORY. Special praise is accorded the improved classification, by which any address sought may be found in a moment. As in Philadelphia, given the number, it is pos&ible to tell the exact location of a house in any given block ; so in the Directory, tr e name known, the page upon which it will be seen can be determined nlmost before the book is opened. The hinding, typography, and comprehensiveness of the book are also favorably referred to by all those from whom we have beard since its delivery commenced on Saturday last Thi5 uniform appreciation and prompt acknowledgment of the merits of our work are circum stances that are very gratifying to us, as it is thus made wanifest that' our efforts to produce a serviceable Trade Directory have not been expended in vain. Non sub scribers will do well to forward their orders to us at once, as we can not now tell how soon our entire edition will be exhausted. Sent hy mail the cost of the Directory will be $4.2 per volume; when sent by express it will be subject 10 express charges to distance INTERN A.L REVENUE RECEIPTS FOR THE PAST SEVEN :MONTHS. Through the courtesy of the Commissioner of Inter nal Revenue we are enabled to collate and presenl herein f0r the benefit of our readers a statement of the monthly and total receipts from the of tobacco and cognate sources for seven months of the current fiscal year. This is the fir!it time the tobacco trade bas been afforded an opportunity to ascertain the actual extent of its monthly contributions to the N a tiona! Treasury, or the aggregate amount of money paid in so long in advance of the annual report of the Internal Revenue Commissioner,and the favor conferred upon us at our request by Commissioner Raum in placing us promptly in possession of such timely in. formation, will be duly appreciated by those for whose contemplation the informa1ion is designed.

How T o BLUE GLASs.By cutting off his cigars :and saving half his car-fares every man may fill his bouse w1th blue glass windows. By a strange paradox, blue panes mak.e life supremely bhssful. CoRRECTION. The advertisement of Mr. D W. De. Forest, c1garette manufacturer, as pub!tshed last week on our fifth page, should have read, Pnce ll.oo, less 10 per cent. per M instead of $ro. oo, less 10 per cent. IN PARis.-X. lights a c1gar, then to his valet, with a horrible gnmace; "Jea.n Baptiste, where in thunder did you get that cigar ?" 'In the Qlue porcelain box, -s1r." "You illimitable 1diot! How often have I told J'OU that the c1gars in the blue box are for my friend!> ?" PROSPECTIVE PARTNERSHIP DISSOLUTION.-Messrs. Frischen, Roess & leaf tobacco dealers, 17 5 Water Street, are reported as contemplating a change in their firm by the retirement of Mr. Schultz, who will engage in busmess on his own account. TRULY SAm.-When you go to a book auction, don't 'bid on an old Greek work just because it is going dog -cheap. A Greek book to a man who does'nt understand the language, is of as much use as a meerschaum ptpe and a pocketful of smoking toeacco is to a yellow dog. ROBERT HuRM.-We have the pleasure to announce that this gentleman, member of the firm of N a term ann .& Hurrn, leaf tobacco merchants, Bremen, is now in this city, where he w1ll remain for a short time, and then make a of the tobacco 5ectioos of the West and Southwest. BRISTOL, EAST TENN.li;SSEE.-The planters of this new town of 4,ooo inhabitants have commenced within the past two years to raise tobacco, and believe the soil of that section is capable of yielding excellent wrap pmg workmg and shtpping leaf. The yellow wrappers grown there they claim are unexcelled. REJALL & BxcKRLThis popular firm who, as eur ;readers are aware, are manufacturers of meerschaum and amber goods, and importers of smokers' articles, at No. 99 Chambers Street, have bee'? by their m creasing patronage to approfnate to thear use the en tire upper portion of the estabhshment now occup1ed by them. ToLLAND CouNTY, CoNN.-A Somers ..vrites us that Messrs. ---, of Spnngfiela, Mass., have bought a few lots of tobacco in Somers at 10 cents for wrappers and 4 cents for fillers. In Tolland," adds "most of the old tobacco in the south part of the town' has been sold to parties in New York at from 4 to u cents a pound." ToBAcco.-We are assured by those who ought to know, says the that IS a large quantity of tobacco m thts section awattmg sh1p111ent to market. The crop last year was a good one, and very little comparatively has been sh1pped. The sale of th1s tobacco will reheve very perceptibly the present finan ..cial depression. CHEATING IN SPIRITS AND TOBACCO -The Commis sioner of Internal Revenue says he will try to d1mmish the fraud on the revenue in certam secttons of the South m spuits and tobacco. To this end he has increased the number of spec1al deputy collectors in the places where the frauds are perpetrated. Will this effect the object sought ? STK:MMERY AND RE DRYIIfG EsTABLisHNENT.-From Mr. William Davies, aJgent for Messrs. George Camp bell & Co., of London, Liverpool and-Glaagow, we have received two tutefully framed photographic views of the new tobacco Stemmery and Re drying establishment re cently erected his ffirm at Henderson,_ 'ky. Judging ,by the illustration sent us, the stemmery IS well adapted to the purposes for which it is mtended. The building was erected in fifty days, is 180 feet long and 90 feet in breadth, and has a capacity for drying I,ooo,ooo pounds -of strips at one time. THE TOBACCO LEAF. MARCH 28. UNITED. Mr. Edwm Etnstein, the accomplished partner o t Mr. L. Hirschhorn, of the firm of L. Hirsch born & Co., ciga; manufacturers of th1s city, was recently united in marnage to M1s s Fanny Hendncks, the beautiful daughter of Mrs. U. Hendncks of Ftfth avenue. The honeymoon trip of the happy conple will embrace a tour of Contmeutal Europe. They Will leave York on April 25, and the best wishes of their hosts of fnends will accompany them unlll they return to us again. MEETING OF TOBACCO FACTORS.-A meeting of some of the Broad Street leaf tobacco factors was held on Monda} afternoon at whi c h matters relatmg to the Western leaf tobacco trade were buefiy dtscussed. The meeting was by calling Mr. Murphy to the cha1r and Mr. Garth, Jr. to officiate as Secretary A committee conststmg of Mr. Blakemore, Mr. Pettus, Mr. Taylo r and Mr. Garth was appointed by the chair man to prepare a paper expreisJve of the object of the gentlemen 10 attendance to be submitted at the next me e ting. In our next succeedmg issue we shall be able to announce the subject under consideration, the transactions thus far bemg only prelimmary to possible future Important action. --How TO RAISE ToiM.cco PLANTs.-r Corr e spondmcc of the Rural World]-Take some of the seeds that you want to sow, and throw them on hve fire coals, and, if they pop, they are good; then burn a b1g brush pile, or log heap, about the ume t3e ground is thawing out in February or March. Then d1g up the ground and pulverize 1t well; rake the bed level, and sow the seed; th e n brush in the seed with a brush by hand ; then tramp the ground hard, and smooth and cover the bed thm with fine brush, to keep off the frost and reflect the heat of the sun If any leaves or trash blow on the bed, take them off. After the frost IS over, take off the brush also. If the ground gets too dry, water it, and if any gra,s or weeds come up m the bed, pull the 'll out.-Knox county, Ill. WM. EssEx. THE PROPOSED GERMAN ToBACCO TAX.-The Spei rer Zulung says:-"The prOJeCt or the German Govern ment to ra1se the duty on fore1gn tobacco in order to cover a deficiency of 25,ooo,ooo thalers in the Reichs Budget, is assuming a substantial shape and has be come a subJeCt of animated discussion m the press. We are in recetpt of a South-German newspaper, the Speiur Zeitung, which contains a leading article upon the matter strictly in favor of a higher duty on fore1gn tobacco. ')uch a proceedmg, as a necessary conse quence, w11l result ultimately m the raising of the tax on domestic tobacco, and this will, without doubt, pre vent a great many small farmers from growing tobacco any longer, and lead them back to a regular farmer's occupation, which will tend to tke imJ_Jrovement of the agi iculLure of Germany. SMALL TALK IN THE COURIER-JOURNAL.-There is a pleasant way of meeting the annoyaoce of tobacco smoke. Non-smokers, by da1ly partaking of onions will find that they can emit almost as much as the pipe-wagglers and the cigar-burners. Irt cases where there are five smokers to one non-smoker in a room, garlic is more useful than the onion, and close conversations will sufficiently discover Its merit!l. The onion has been too much neglected. It is healthful, and no one is ever so rude as to complain of it. Raw, and d1pped m pure vmegar, it 1s delicious food. Fried, its flavor and aroma are even more distinctly brought out. It wouldn't be much additional expense to the railroads te provide onion cars" for the onion-eaters, aad the street-cars could easily post a notice directing persons with onions to occupy the platforms. CoMPLETED ...: A visit made du1 ing the week to the nearly completed extension to the cigar manufactory of Messrs. L1chtenstem Brothers & Co., :a68 and 270 Bow ery, fully justified our anticipations of its perfect adapt ab1hty to the purposes for wh1ch it was inter.ded, as desen bed m THE ToBACCO LEAF last Autumn, when ground was first broken for the erection of the structure now added to the former main buildings occupied by the firm. Some slight accessories have yet to be adjusted, when the establishment will be thoroughly eqUipped and m running order. Several hundred operatiVes are now employed on the vanos floors, and there is ample room for as many more. The manufactory proper is five stories high, and in l e ngth embraces the entire depth of the block from the Bowery to Ehzabeth Street. It is supphed w i th every apphance for service and comfort, having engines, elevators, hot -air heating apparatus, and allother modern ) mprovements. DESIDERATA IN SMOKING.Accord:ng to Dr. Ber thaud, in the 7 n6une Metii c ale, whatever be the mode of smoking, direct contact of the tobacco with the "mu cus buccalis "-mucous hmng of the cheeks-and the teeth must be a_voided ; should be smoked in an amber, ivory or enamelled porcelain mouthpiece ; to smoke, by relighting them, of cigars that have been extinguished, together with the system of black ened and juicy pipes, must be avoided, as it is the surest way of bemg affected by nicotine ; every smoker would cio well, if practicable, to rinse his mouth after smoking. and it would be well to subject pipes and bowls in wh1cll tobacco bas been burned by frequent washmgs either with ether or with water mixed with alcohol or with vmegar. The cigarette is preferable, by reason of its slight quantitative importance and the paper, which in terferes with the contact of -its contents with the buccal mucous membrane; but to reahte all the desiderata in this case 1t would be necessary to have the papelito" made of flax thread and to abstain from the practice which has become so universal-o! retaining the aspira tion at the back of the mouth, so as to pour It out of the nostrils afterward. THE NATIVES OF LAPLAND. -The men are physically a fine race, and are generally honest and iudustrious, with an air of independence and straightforwardness. L1ke the poorer Swedes elsewhere, they are greatly gtven to the use of tobacco in all forms, and besides smoking and chewtng in the usual approved methods, they actually eat large quantities of snuff, helping themselves, as the Highlanders ts and large hands and feet. The older women look worn, but never have the haggish and almost bru talized look which ts not uncommon in old women in other countries who have led hard, out-door lives. The general expression of countenance is somewhat pathetic, though they seem contented with their strange, solitary and joyless hfe, and we could never get any of then, to confess that they would care to chanie it, nor even to complain of what, as it appeared to us, must be the terrible monotony and hardship of the long, dark winter. MIGHT HAVE KNowN lT.-A desolate looking man appeared oa Market Street, Philadelphia, Friday, with a cigar box under his arm, and murmurmg at intervals, "It's too bad; 1 might have known it, though." Then he unbosomed himselt to a bystander, and the facts were ehc1ted. The man had come from Burlin&ton County, N. J., and was met on WatP-r Street by a fellow having the appearance of a sailor. The latter had smuggled, he said, a few boxes of cigars, bad one con taining roo left, ana would aell it cheap, especially as his craft sailed for the West Indies at noon. The Jer seyman tried one of the cigars, found it good and then handed over for tbe box, s upposing he was getting genuine Havana s He carri e d It arOL:nd and probably shook it somewhat, as when be opened it a gain about three layers of cigars, and those very Inferi o r, were found, the layers being ker;t up by a p t ece of card board, past ed m the box about two inches from the top. The balanc e of tke interior was filled with-air. The ruralite took the afterno o n train for home, assertmg that every time he visited Philadelphia he would w a tch for that fellow and have him sent to )all if 1t cost a whole year's crops. ON THE STRASSE.The Ring Strasse writes a V1enna correspondent of the New York World, pro rotses to become the handsomest street in the world It is twice as broad as Fifth avenue, with a bndle path on one side. It encircl e s the entire city prope r hence its name. Tll.ere is a new univers1ty buildmg gomg up. a Pahas de Jus !Ice, a Parhament house, a royal museum and two other buildmgs. They are to be of solid stone, and not of stucco whtch m Germany is so common The Ring Strasse is the fashio!lable afternoon promenade, and the people are remarkably nice-look. ing.The chief types are the Jewish '' swells, the officers, and the mothers with marna geable daughters. There are very few of the less respectable lad1es of the city to be seen on the Ring Stras s e. They swarm m the streets around the Graben, however, in large numbers. Whether the mamageable daughters are pretty or not is a subject wh1ch has been much dis cu!sed. The girl who IS above the average here in the matter of good looks has generally pretty hair, pretty eyes, a good complexion and a good figure, but it is hard to lind a pretty mouth or a gtd who dresses iu good taste. These fam1ly p:uties oi th1ee are very amusing. The savage old mamma walks in the middle w1th a daughter on e1ther side. Notwithstandmg the old lady's vigilance, I think the giris are apt to cast side glances when a brilliant umform passes by. The men affect the English style, and some of them succeed tolerably well, as there are good tailors in Vienna. Almost every man smokes whether he is with a lady or not The fashionable "weed" is what is called here a" Virginia," kind of long thin cigar, with a straw running through the mic\dle. They draw very badly and last a long t1me. The highest price paid for them is 24 kreuzers, or about 10 cents, and a man who can smoke a pipe all day and feel no bad effects will ordinanly succumb under a "Virgima." Business Changes.

GJt.0WlNG l'ORVIGN TOBACCO IN TH& CONNECTICUT VALLEY. WINDSOR, Marek 20, 1877. EDITOR TOBACCO LEAF:-There have been several attempts made here to ra1se Spanish tobacco, wh1ch IS a very neat and delicate looking plant m the field, as every plant is very heal t hy looking, and few mongrel plants are to be found in a whole field of it. It was thought by many that It would be the most profitable kind to ra1se for the following reasons :-The grount;\ leaves do not drop down into the ground as those of the Connecticut Seed leaf do, but stand erect thus avertmg bruises, tearing and ground sweat, and as the whole of tbe leaves grow in th1s manner, the grower would have an opportunity to hoe and work the tobacco at any time, not being prevented by wilting down in the warm part of the day. Then, we could set the plants about twice as thick in the field as the old Seed plants, and the leaves would grow a great deal thicker on tbe stalks. Spanish tobacco cures of a nice even colOI', each leaf curing of one color from bottom to top, and generally dark brown, unlike the Connecticut Seed, which some times has many d1fferent colored leaves on one stalk, thus giving a very large proportion of wrappers. The texture of the leaf is, very nice, it having a good prominent grain, and it also contains a good deal of elasticity. lt was thought by the growera here that they had found something supenor to the old Seed, the pioneer growers having sold some Spanish Seed crops a s h h as so to 65 cents per p o und for w rappers. The firs t growers hereabouts were Wm Hoskins, Thrall Brothers, and M Dunn, and the1r crops w e re sold In 1874-some to Messrs. Clark & Samiels, and some to Messrs. wood & B1rge, and tnese buyers hoped they had got somethmg really desirable. They bought 1 t 1n a green s tate. Now, I will tell you what they have to say about i t at this t1me. Their observations tend to di s courage 1ts growth, and thetr reasons are very good ones. I chatted with Mr. Birge, and I learned that h1s opinion was that the sweat is imperfect, the leaf look l ng when swea t ed as though it had been varnished. When first wrapped on a c igar it looked very well, but in a few days 1t would begin to crack and sp01l the smoke of the c ;gar; this bemg a senous objection to the manu fac t urer. I next saw Mr. Clark and he said the same, with the addition that one case was enough to satisfy any manufacturer for ever So the growers can not sell it 1f they ratse 1t, and wtll have t be contented with the old Seed leaf and take the market as it may be, for we have all got enough of Connecticut Seed on our hands with o ut trying to raise something we can not sell, and s o we content ourselves with calhng the attempt to ra1se Spamsh a fa1lure, although the growers, so far, have received the est of growmg the crop.

It 1s a common thing for the g 1 rls employed i n the factory to support a family by their labor, and the par ents will driv:: them out to work when they are really mcapable of doing so. In all such cases the girls are sent home and the physician prescribes for them free of charge. ll"he report of this physician, for the last six months, shows that among 450 hands in th1s vast there were dunng the t1me mentiOned only four acc1dents, s1xteen sick applications, five days lost by sickness, and not one death. This, certainly, is a most excellent showing of how a first-class factory, properly conductec\ on sanitary and common-sense pnnc1ples, may be made, not a task house, but a place where 01en and women may earn their daily bread wtth the cer tamty that they will be well looked after. It must be borne in mind, however, that this is the description of a firs t-class cigarette factory. Would there were more hke it, and our first art1cle need never to have been wntten, to attract the attention of those who are being poisoned by cheap 1ll-made cigarettes.

His view about an official career was, that it was like a sea voyage-a proper thi ng to under take and a good thing to have accom plished, in safety, though full of dis com! arts and annoyance while in progress. The snuff-box that was presented to him he always afterward used. It traveled with him in his voyages, and at home occupied a drawer in his writing desk when not carried in his pocket. Taking snuff, however, could hardly be' said to be a habit of his at this period. An oeca sional pinch m the course of conversa tion or of work was all that he indulged in, having been advised that it was useful as a preventive of catarrhal affection to which be had formerly been tubject.

On reachiug their destination the cigars were all gone. Each acknowledged that be had smoked a dozen, but each insisted that the other bad smoked the odd one.
