Most c of the "speakers opposed the tobacco tax, but fav-:>i-ed the reform of taxation and the appointment of a responsible Imperial Finance Minister. Prince Bismarck stated that an increase of indirect taxes and duties h8.d become a necessity. The present bill was only a temporary measure. The .real aim was the establishment of a tobacco monopoly. The debate soil the facts that the best horse does not generally win when. professional jockeys have control of the course, that the pea is not always under the thimble they are certain it is, and that it is almost an impos sibility to pick up the right card when thrown by a three-card-monte sharper. These truths were about all that could be learned from such instituons, and they cost the learners a great deal of cash in acquiring them. ; Of those societies which adhered to the oripnal plan upon which they were founded, some have flourished and have been the means"of doing a, great deal of good. They have held their meetings and have discussed the better methods of growing crops, how best to improve their cattle, and other kindred subjects; and the bene fits of such interchanging of opinions is to be seen to day in better cultivated farms, finer stock, and th increased circulation of newspapers advocating in an way the interests of the huebandinan.

VIEWS OF A CONNECTICUT TOBACCO GROWER. An mtelligent Connectwut Rtver Valley tobacco ,grower favored us m an interview withm a day or two wtth the followmg personal v1ew of the situation and prospect m the Valley-''The busilless of growmg tobacco is now a very poor one with us Prices have got so very low that none of the growers can raise tobacco at a profit, and further more, thetr present condition 18 generally bad, owing to the system of gambling which they have indulged in for the past several years, and which has nearly ruined them financially. By gamblin,; I mean that farmers have been m the habit of raising, we will say, & crop of tobacco one year, and not gettillg cost pnce for it, have turned right around the next year and got into debt to raise another crop, thinking to recover the losses of the previous year. When they raised good crops they were so stimulated they would at once seek to enlarge their business by buying land, erecting sheds, and experimenting in commercial fer tilizers, etc., purely on speculat10n. There are two classes of growers who are going to abandon the grow ing of tobacco in the Connecticut Valley, and probably elsewhere as well; one is the capitalists that in past years have been raising from fifteen to fifty acres. The prtces have so depreciated m consequence of the large supply that has been grown and held by them in the hope that they wo111ld get what it cost to grow it, that they are completely discouraged, and at present they are throwing thetr tobacco illto the market at almost whatever price they get. Thts clas8 say they have got through w1th the growing of tobacco. The other class comprises the lllll8ll growers who, w1th a few acres of land, have grown all the tobacco they could and have got mto debt in domg so, and have had to sell their tobacco for the last three years at less than cost prices. They have parted with their tobaccos at a sacrifice in order to meet their habilities, and now many of them are compelled to leave their busmess and places. Heteafter the tobacco to be grown will be mamly grown by the regular class of farmers, who wlil raise a few acres of tobacco each year-makm:g and usillg chtefiy their own manures-and cultivate .sufficient other farm produce to maintain themselves, and set as1de their tobacco for theiimoney crop. All the tobacco that w1ll be raised for the coming few years will be growl). by that class, and will be put ipto the market and sold green. They w'tll not try to make themselves dealers by boxmg and casmg the1r crops, as has been done m the past few years, greatly to the InJUry of both the growers and dealers. I don't thmk the tobacco market would have been in nearly as bad a condition as It IS at the present time if the farmers had sold their tobacco directly to the dealers mstead of boxmg it. When the dealers bOught the tobacco in the Valley, prices could be set upon It and 1ts pos1t1ve value known. After It was sweated, when one dealer had his tobacco sampled he knew what each class of goods was worth in market; and if a manufacturer went to A to buy a bill of goods, and the dealer had in his warehouse the goods the manufacturer wanted, whatever price was set upon these goods, the manufac turer was aware that if he went to B's warehouse he would have tO pay the same price for the &am.e quality of grades there that he would have to pay A. But, as the market ia now, with this vast amount of sweated tobacco in the growers' hands, there can be no regular prices established on any quality of goods, because the growers are not good enough JUdges of sweated leaf to know what the tobacco is worth when it is sweated; and the manufacturer, taking ad vantage of this, starts right out into the country and goes round among the growers and ptcks up his stock sometimes very ch!lll.p. He w1ll go riding around until he comes to some one JVho is offering his tobacco for less than it 18 worth in :#file market, or else he will find people that are hard pread for money and have got to sell, and, of course, m that way he often gets his stocks cheaper than he of a dealer. One reason why so much poor to --bacco is left m the country is because it has been held UJr the growers and there has been no chance to export it. The trade has not had control of It. In years past when the dealers handled the tobacco, any of it that was poor, after it was sweated, was shipped right out of ihe country, and that kept the market contmually drained of the poor grades. But smce the grower has tried to make himself a dealer, a gJ:eat deal of the poor tobacco 18 per81118ntly held in the growers' hands, and left here in thecountry as a drug in the market. If the growers in the Valley had never been tempted to save a dollar by boxing their tobacco, it would have been a gJ:eat deal better for them, as there would not now be much, if any, old tobacco left in tbeir posses-" &ion."

LOTTI EI'R,' OUR W ASHI:NGTO:N LETTER. From Our Own Correspondent. WASHINGTON, February 23. The Committee on Ways and Means have only par tially completed the Tariff bill The prospect now rs that they wtll not reach a final vote on the measure for ten days at the outside. They are now considering the sehedule in regard to tin, and have many other articles of im:portance to dispose of, which will con sume more time than was at first expected. Thetr time until recently has been occupted in the considerat10n of memorials and ltstening to addressee from :parties representing various interests, bu.t the comrmttee has deCided to close their doors agamst.any delegations whatever, and are now conductmg the1r deliberations in the strictest privacy. Notwithstand this, the enterpnsmg reporters have invaded the prtvacy of their proceedings and liave laid all their 1mportant transact10ns before the people m the morning pnnts. These news.Jl&P6r men are accused of having telephomc connect1on with the committee room, whereby they are enabled to listen to all that IS sa1d therem. But I am inclined to think there is a somewhere m the committee Itself, and that it consrsts of one of its own members. As yet nothmg has been done by the committee with the tobacco tax The internal revenue wtll be liift to the last, and will not be taken up until after the Tariff bill 1s entirely drs posed of. The duty on imported cigars will probably not beehanged from that gtven m Wood's original bill; and the schedule relatmg to liconce and other ingredi ents m manufactured tobacco will not be altered, un less 1t be to make the prov18ion general as recommended in the bill proposed by the Sub-Committee on Internal Revenue allowing such ingredients to be trans ferred free to all factories..f91' home as well as foreign consumption. There IS qmte a dtverstty of views tobacco men as to the matter of attachi!lS the intenial revenue me8sure to the Tariff bill. In my Ofinion, based UJlOn my OW!l Observations and study o the subject, It will largely depend upon what kind of aninternalrevenuemeasure ia recommended whether or not it will be best for the tobacco mterest to tack that subject to the Tariff bill. If It is desJ.rable to have the recommendation of the committee on the sub]ect of internal taxes !'Pq\liesced m and become a law, then I should say worst thmg the com mittee can do will be to incorporate that subject in their Tariff bill. I doubt yeey much if the Tariff hill becomes a law this session of Congress There 18 such a variety of opinions on the subject of tariff, so many mterests to be satisfied, that it will be impossible for the committee to report a bill that will meet the views of a majority of either House of so that when the bill comes out of the legislat1ve .mill-if it ever does-it will have scarcely any resemblanceto that reported by the committee. It will be amended m almOI'It every schedule. There are scaroely two men who believe. exactly alike on the details of a bi,l.l, although they may be together on the general policy of free trade or of a high protective tariff. So you can see the great difficulty of gettmg a majority of Con gress to agree upon any bill, whether it be for a high or low tariff, although certainly a mttjonty of Con gress are for one or the other. One thing IS certaitr. Wood's bill unamended by the conumttee would .not pass the two branches, as there are large majont1es m both against the low rates he proposes on some arti cles wh1ch are the products of some of our largest industries. If, however, the committee should raise some of these rates, as they seem dlSposed to do, these majorities would be somewhat reduced, but perhaps not sufficiently to insure the passage of the bill High as the rates may be on many articles as the la.w now is, it IS very dtfficult now to reduce them. The great industries of the country whose busmess has been made to conform to these rates, cry out aga1nst the reduc tion. If the present rates had never been establ18hed, the clamor to have the rates raised would have amounted to_ but little compared with the cry now raised against reduction. Whatever reduction is recommended by the committee will have to encounter these difilculties; and if the bill passes the present Congre88, I doubt very much if it be the present session. So I regard it as equtvalent to no effort at all to have a change made in the internal revenue law and taxes if this attempt is to be fastened on at the tail-end of a tariff bill. On the contl;lry, if the recommendation is agamst the interests of the growers, manufacturers and dealers throughout the country, it may be a veq desirable thing to them to it placed there, for 1t is, better for tllelh to have the present law than a wbrse one. There are no new developments on the tobacco ques tion th1s week. The subject slumbers in the commit tee, and awaits its act10n. Appeals and memorials are stlll sent m to them from the various tobacco dtstncts asking for a reduction. The National Congress of Agriculturalists the other day passed a resolut10n ap pointmg a committee to Upon the committee and ask for a removal of what they claim is a great oppres sion upon oue of their most important agricultural pursuits. T this end a reduction was asked on the tax on tqpacco. Col. Burwell addressed the convention and used one of his best arguntents in favor of reduc tion. It was received well -by, the IU!fiOCil'tlOnl who adopted the resolution with but a smgle dissenting vote. This waa b;r. the secretary, who stated that they ought not to hastily pas8 a resolution affectirig so ImportAnt, a quest10n as taxation. I have no reason as yet to waver from the opinion I have already expressed that the full committee will agree to report a reduction to sixteen cents, the vtews of others to the contrary not withstanding. I have had a easual conversat10n -.yith Mr. Kimball, of the tobacco dtvision in the Treasury Department, whose letter in THE ToBACCO LEAF has attracted a good deal of attention this week. While in his letter he gives facts and figures, from whwh hts posit10n on the question is 'readily inferred, he says nothmg regardmg the pros}lect of reduct10n this Con gre88. He says that he is ratherinlllined to the opm10n, from the present asvect of matters, that th1s Congr.ess will not make any cba.nge of the tax etther on wh18key or tobacco; yet he says no one can tell exMtly: what Congress will do_ He believes that the Sub Committee will report a reduction to 16 and even 12 cents a pound, which vtew accords w1th what has been uttered by others all along. But the questiOn, said he, mvolves the whole field of revenue. Changes in the_ revenue Ia w are always experimental. The Government knows what revenue 1t wants, and it is 'unportant that It should have it. It 1s impossible to tell what effect changes in the tariff will have on the revenue. The country, he continued, has come to learn one fact, and that ::s that from tobacco and whiske.y they are sure at the present rates of about a hpndred milhons. A man likes to be sure of a revenue that he can depend upon; and the Governn1ent in this respect is Just like the individual. It 1s sure of so much, and it ,is not likely to give up that certainty for an uncertainty by launching u:r.on a sea of uncertainty. He added, "My idea IS that If the Government had an income tax that was sure tor. eld it a revenue of forty millions; If 1t was sure o a certain amount from Custom House duties, then it would be in a condition to reduce the tax on tobacco and whiskey. But it has no income tax, and the receipts have been falling off largely from the customs. The only certain source of income to the Governn1ent has been the internal revenue, and that has depended mainly upon these two sources-tobacco and whi!(key,. Its other sources may fail, but there is not much likiili.hood of failUre from those two sources. I have no hesitation at allm My:ing that the consum{> tion of tobacco in this country at the present time IS about as much as it can be. Men consume about all they want. The Government gets the tax on the greater part of 1t 0f course tf a man wishes to raise a small patch of tobacco in his garden for his own con sumption, he will do that whatever the tax may be; but this is not done to a very great extent out&de of the tobacco-growinfi States. This does not affect the revenue very materially. That being the case, my own opinion is that whatever rtlductiol;lS are made they will reduce the revenues; and if, as proposed, the tax on tobacco is reduced to 12 cents on manufactured tobac co, including all kiilds of snuff, and a corresponding reduction in the tax on cigars to $3, which there must be m order that the two branches of bu.smess may be on an equality1 then all the,revenue the Goveriunent can expect to aerive from tllat source will be about 25 millions." I suggested that of course his interest in the whole subjeQt was in the direction of keeping up tlie revenue, waile those who were more direetly affected by the tax were the ones_ who complained of what they clrum is an unfair and oppressive burden. He made no direct reply to this remarli:, and proceeded to call attention to the various points he has already given in THE LEAF. Feehng a curiosity to know what amount of tax each State paid the Government on the article of tobacco, I requested him to furnish me a statement showing what I wanted to know. He very kindly did do, and I annex it as follows: REVENUE J'ROJl MANUI'ACTUUD TQBACCO IN 1877. XaiDe, New HamDOblre, Vermoat aDd llhode Ialand, 110110.

EDITOR ToBACCo LEAF -In speakmg of monopolies in the tobacco business, and the tendency of the tax to foster and facilitate the same, all that can be charged m th1s regard to the tax system ts.this, that m conse quence of the Government tax 1t requires a larger amount of capital"todo a given amount of manufac tunng when the sales are made on trme. In the manufacture{)! tobacco and as in the manufacture of any other goods. wares, or merchandise, large finns and corporations wtth cap1tal at command have, and always wtll have, an advantage over small manufacturers, and this is irrespective of the Government tax. Thts advantage follows from the abiltty of large firms procure and use new and 1:nproved machmery; the mtroduct10n of new processes; m a greater div1810n of labor, and consequently d1mimshed cost of productiOn ab1lity to purchase matenals at the most t1mes; to hold goods when prwes are depressed and sell when the market 18 quick.; to seek dtstant and foreign markets. In all these respects the large manu facturers have and wlll have an advantage over the smalll'ir. I am not aware that there 1s one lesa manu facturer of tobacco and ctgars to-day than there was fifteen years ago, and It is doubtful if the number of regular fnanutacturers would be increased 1f all taxes on tobacco snuff and cigars were taken off and the busilless left open and free for any and every 'man who chose to engage in 1t. Half the present number of manufacturers wtth the capital now at their command With the factories they posse88, the machinery and fixtures they own, and the men they do or could em ploy, are capable of producing all the manufii.Ctured tobacco, snuff and ctgars which the country demands for home consumption, or the dealers and jobbers m 1obacco1 etc., could find a fore1gn market for. One hundrea and twenty-five million pounds of manufac tured tobacco annually, with two thousand million Cigars, would be an ample supply for all the consumers of the country. More than th18 quantity would be a surplus, would overstock the market, reduce pr10ee1 and, by the law of demand and supply, regulate ana hnut productiOn. Now what 1s true of manufactured tobacco is equally true of leaf tobacco. The two States of VIrgmia and Kentucky, s1tuated m the so-called belt of tobacco growmg States, bas land enough, if put under proper cultivation, to ra1BC all the leaf tobacco required tor the consumpt10n of the whole country_ Less than 200,000,000 of the 500 000,000 pounds of leaf tobacco annually ratsed m the country 1s manufactured at home. The balance of the 11rop 18 exported to foreign countr1et1. To ,the fore1gn demand the, farmers and planters-growers of leaf tobacco-have to look for the Bale of three-fifths of these crops; and It 18 the foreign demand, m a large degree, that determmes the prtce of leaf tobacco. But there ill a lim1t to the demand of leaf tobacco for export, as there 1s a hm1t to the demand for home manufactures. And whenever the supply exceeds the demand, as 1t almost always does m years favorable for a tobacco crop, then pnces fall, and the farmer fails to realize remunerative pnces for hts labor. Such is the natural, the inevitable result of over-productiOn of any product the consumptiOn of which IS limited. I have-said that the two States of Kentucky and Virguua were capable of producmg leaf tobacco m quantities sufficient to supply the home consumption of the entire country. If, to the capacity of these two States, there be added the capactty of the other States where tobacco 18 now made an a.gncultural product to a very considerable extent, to wit the States of Mary lana, North Carolina, Tennessee and M188ouri, with parts of Ohio, Indiana, Illinms, W1sconsin, New York, Penn sylvarua, ConnectiCut and Massachusetts, and you w1ll have a supply equal to demands of all Europe, If not of the world. Tobacco as an agricultural plant differs from cotton m this: only a small proportion, comparat1vely, of the populat10n of th18 or any other country makes use ot tobacco in any form, while cotton enters mto the domestic economy of every household, and can be and IS used almost umversally as a materinl 'in dress. Reduced prices may follow large crops of cotton, but the cotton planter never fears that he will be unable to find purchasers sooner or later for all the cotton he can produce. The same 18 true of wheat, corn, and the other cereals'. 1 The entire population of aU the civillZed nations of the world are consumers. Abundant harvests may depress pnces, but low pnces mcrease consumpt10n, and the world's population IS better fed. 0 Ice, hke tobacco, 18 a luxury, and not a tenth part of the populat10n of this country uses it. Therefore the demand bears no adequate proport10n to the supply that 18 poss1ble. Milhons of tons could be cut and housed every winter upon the lakes and nvers of the frtgtd North-the ICe-belt of States-to coin anew ex pressiOn. But, cons1denng the limited demand for Ice durmg any season, and constdermg another fact which does 110matun88' occur, and may occur any winterthat a cold cycle from the North, settlmg down upon the Potomac, the James, the Ohto, the lJumberiand, Tennessee, '"and other Southern nvers, may congeal the1r waters mto Ice and fthus enable the inhabitants bol:'dermg on and commumcatmg with Mid nvers to gather theu own supply-It would be a hazardous venture to cut and store 1ce at the-North to the extent that 1t rmght be done. Equally hazardous w1ll 1t be for the various tobacco-growmg States which I have named to cultivate the tobacco plant to the extent of the1r capaCity to produce the same. The demand 18, and always will be, limited. Of the several States I have named, and others"lhat mtght have been added to the hst, undoubtedly some are by chmate and soil to the of tbe tobacco plant than others. In this respect they have an advantage in makmg It a money crop. Its growth 1s proh1b1ted by no State or natJonallaws, and IS open to tree competitiOn by all. No State nor number of States can claim a monopoly, except such as depends on natural causes. Each ta1mer and planter, w determmmg h18 crops, will study h1s own pecumary mterest alone, and experience will soon teach htm whether It is safer to rely on a s1ngle crop of wheat, corn, toba('CO or cotton, or to dtver&fy h1s e1ops. where the soil and chmate will permit 1t to be done, so that 1f one product fads to be remunerative, all will not. And the farmer or planter who rwses tobacco has sufficient mtelhgence to understand that his chances for securmg a. remunerative pnce for h18 tobacco 18 greatly dlilllmshed 1f the supply 18 a hundred hogsheads, while there 1s an Immediate demand for only ten. ] or four years, from 1861 till1865, the entire North and West were cut off from their accustomed supply not only of manufactured but of leaf tobacco trom those States whtch, prior to that trme, had furmshed the prillCipal portiOn of that supply. But the people must have the1r tobacco. The demand contmued the same, and, to supply that demand, farmers m other States commenced more largely to cultivate tobacco, and, for a number of years, and unbll the South re covered Its former pos1t10n, renewed w1th zeal 1ts wonted agricultural and manufactunng operatiOns, these northern found the rrusmg ot tobacco profitable. Durnrg the same tnne tobacco factories sprung up m the North, where before such factones were unknown. These factones mcreased m numbers and grew m rmporta.nce. From the manufacture and sale of one; two, or threel)undred thousand pounds annua.1Iy they soon manufactured and sent out as many IDlllions. Owmg to the liiDlted supply of stock everythmg in the shape of tobacco was worked up and sold etther as chewmg or smoking tobacco, snuff or Cigars. Stems, scraps and refuse tobacco all took shape as manufactured tobacc;o; all found consumers, all paid a remunerative prwe to tbe manufacturer, notwithstanding the Government tax. This state of thmgs has now become entirely changed. There is no longer a hm1ted supply of leaf tobacco. The farmEif!l and planters of V:trglllla, North Carolina and Tennessee who m 1860 are reported to have raised 200,269,659 pounds of leaf tobacco, are agam competitors m the market w1th the farmers of Maryland, Kentucky, Pennsylvama, M1ssour1, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and other tobacco-rwsmg States There18 no longer a necess1ty for the manufacturer to work up his stems, scraps and refuse tobacco. These now, to a large ex tent, are sold by the manufacturers to farmers as fertilizers, or are s1ored away awrutmg the tune when a short crop of leaf w1ll brmg them mto requis1t10n, or perchance It may be with the hope that when the Government tax shall be removed or greatly reduced1 there may be a demand for these stems1 scrape ana refuse for manufacturmg purposes, and tne manufac turer may agam manipulate them and sell them at a profit for consumpt10n. That the crop of leaf, under the impetus which has been gtven to Its cultivatiOn, will soon be so short as to require the working up mto manufactured tobacco these stems and th18 refuse tobacco, 18 exceedmgly doubtful. That the removal of the tax would create a demand for such cheap and tnfenor tobaccos is ent1rely problematical. And, admtttmg that such would be tlie case, It then wonld be a quest10n how far, m a physical and sanitary pomt of FEB. 25 v1ew, the use of such low grades and inferror tobacco should be encouraged. These are matters of great mterest at the present t1me, not only to the farmers and planters who preference to the tobacco plant over other agricultural products as his money crop, but to the manufacturer and the merchant, and particularly to the Congre88 of the Umted States whiCh IS now rev1smg 1ts tax systems; and too much dlBCussion tending to throw light upon these subJects can hardly be given them.
