The town is thronged with strangers, and the streets have a holiday appearance. The weather is all that can be desir ed, and a greater success has never crowned the work of any similar exhibition. Visitors from all sectioll!l of country a.re in, and with our rich agri cultural_ mtelhgent farmers and skilled mechamcs g1vmg such attention it is not a matter of wonder that while in some neighboring counties the agricultural societies are in a languishing condition w1th fairs, ours so richly repay the labors of 1ts managers. "In connection with the Fair, while so many of our tobacco g!Cowers in town, in response to a call, they met m _conventiOn fo. r tp.e purpose of organizing themAelves mto an assocutt10n for the promotion of the tobacco-growing i?terests of York County. About fifty growers were m attendance, representing an acreage of about 400 acres, and about forty signatures were record_ed, together with the acreage of each. Ad dresses pertment to the occasion were made by several tp.e present, and the officers of the pre hmmary meetmg were appointed a committee to draft a constitution for the association and to select perma nent officers. The Association then adjourned to meet on Saturda:y-, October 18th, when the committee will report. It IS expected that the tobacco growers gen erally will be present.

The next meetrng w11l be held in the same place." THE JURYMEN AND THE CIGARS. I s there any man, be he lawyer or layman, who will calmly and knowingly affirm that he is certain .in his mind that such a verdict will be given by the twelvo men, good and true, who form a jury? Of all tho institutions handed down to us from our forefathers the jury is the most peculiar. In these days of honest jockeys and tracks which lack much of being a mile, horse r aces and walking matches are very un certain things to bet on; but betting on the nature of a verdict to be rendered by a jury offers opportunities for the better to go what is termed "blind, such as are never offered by the horse 'race or the walkin&: match. The judge may charge, and the counsels may talk and talk as is their wont to do, explaining this thing. and that until every one is positive that the verdict of the jury will be a correct one, when the jury will astonish all by bringing in a c

What the tobacco manufacturers of New York City and VICimty have to say about the condttlOn and pros pect of thetr br-anch of busmess will be seen in the annexed mtervrews had with them the past week-Jomr ANDERSON & Co. -Busmess IS good. Orders have been commg lately larger than USUI'l, and we look for a continuance of good busmess. We have made no change m PI'Ices of our goods, and do not an tictpate doing so, unless the price of leaf shall contmue to advance, m which case we may advance our pnces BUOHANAN & LYALL-Busmess wtth uS IS as brisk :as ever. We don't seem to overtake our orders, on the -contrary, we are behind them all the time Manufac turers, It may be Said, are not bemg paid for their goods m proportiOn to the advance m leaf, both fillers .a.nd wrappers, and especially the white or Mason County fillers. The advance on that vartety of leaf ..has been nlmost 100 per cent. The reduct1on m tax 'W&S 8 cents, and the advance for good fillers was, on -the average, more than 8 cents ThiS ctrcumstallce, together with the scarCLty of good, brtght wrappers, has enhanced ,the cost of productwn very matenally, so much eo, m fact, that no manufacturer can figure out .a.ny profit on fine goods You take bright wrsppersat 111 cents and white fillers at 17 cents a pound, and It will be found dtfficult to discover a margm for profit; as carefully as one may Manufacturers are .really entrtled to a still further advance, say of 3 cents per pound, at least on first-class standard grades of goods-bnght, fine Navies partiCularly. we are of .the opmit'n that :manufacturers may be compelled to mcrease thetr prices to get cost of thetr goods As to our own trade, we may, perhaps, be excused for saymg that we have not been able to keep up wtth -our orders, and have had to refuse many customerS wantmg goods m a hurry The prospect for our bustness is favorable beyond a ll precedent Even when -our adilttipnal factory-the ground for whtch IS broken anii the architectural studtes pertammg to plans almost 'completed-IS ready for occupancy, present m 4wationB warrant us m behevmg that we shall be obhged to still further enlarge our facihties m order to meet the reqmrements of our patrons D. & Co. -Busmess1s pretty fatr wtth us, we ate goJIIg about all we want to do. We would like..,to raiSed on fine-cut tobacco, as leaf Is so high as to prevent the reahzatron of any profit As yet smoking tobacco ts not cut down so much as fine r cut chewmg Apparently there IS no likehhood of an advance m the price of manufactured tobacco as so1ae manufacturers are domg JUSt what they did awhile ago, a:ud in a more aggravatmg way, that ts, they are mak mg up cheap grades of goods as low, even, as 33 cents .a pound. GooDWIN & Co .. -So far as our own traders concern .ell, we feel sattsfied wrth the past and present season. Undoubtedly, there will be a better demand than there has been, and the prevailmg confidence m larger sales .and better prwes IS JUStified by the Circumstances. Certrunly, neither we nor anybody else can expect to make money at the present tlllle on low prices though, for our own part, we must say we have manufactured no cut goods for less than 45 cents for the past three years, and we sell very httle of that grade Most of our fine-cut ranges from 55 to 60 cents a pound. We make no effort to sell low priced goods There IS a _general rev1val m busmess all over the country, and the Improvement will be felt m the tobacco trade, as m .averythmg else Consumers are reqmrmg a better class of goods than they were, and feel better able1 to pay for what they des1re The demand for our specml brands contmues as good as ever THOMAS HoYT & Co -We have been and shipping very lively durmg the past few months, mcludmg September and thus far 1p October The prospect ahea4'appears to be farr People are now em ployed who previously were tdle, manufacturmg mdus tri&a, such as Iron and others of Importance, have agam started up, and these favorable conditiOns create a market tor our goods as well as others Prices are ..too low fo r manufactured tobacco, made so probably ,.by the competitiOn of so many who are aUXlous to sell iWtth reference to the future of pnces for leaf, It IS cer .tam that there IS a large crop of tobacco back of us, ;and though they may be held firm for a httle whtle longer, we do not percetve anythmg m the SituatiOn

A larger proportwn even than usual of the sh1pments destmed for foreign forts are enclosed m the coastw1se sh1pments, for all o the direct shipments, except 1,458 hhds, were made m the first quarter of the fiscal year and were yet of the 1877 crop The crop as foreshadowed proved to be of a better quahty than we had for several years, and consequently brought out a more active competition for It than we otherwise would have had. The final settlement of the tobacco tax quest10ns, domestic and foreign, gave also a health ier and more regular tone to our markets. Of the Re gies, Austria took a larger supply than for some years past, while the reqwrements of France and Italy both of which awarded contracts, the former for 2,800 hhds, and the latter for 2,800 hhds, are only;PW'tlyfilled yet.

The market bemg, however, pretty well stocked, the unseasonable ness of the wet weather has been a matter of very small annoyance to our dealers and manufacturers, exceptmg m so far that the constant dampness has shghtly retarded the curing of the new leaf. On the whole, however, cons1derable progress has been made, and the number of seasoned "vegas" now offermg are steadily mcreasmg. The sales reported m the country are "few and far between," and as f11rm.ers are most an:nous to realtze their crops, 1t can be safely presumed that purchasers have had thetr own way. Anumber of the early seed plots have been destroyed by the continued downpour of the first month. Partidos-This descr1ption of leaf, although on the whole less cured than the Vuelta AbaJo, has now at tained the apex of populanty w1th speculators and purchasers for the Umted States market. The culti vators, as well as the owners of selecting houses, are now transactmg a hvely and profitable busmees and we ant1c1pate that nry shortfy there will be litile or nothing remwmng m first hands The great predilec tton so suddenly developed for leaf of this description 18 m a large measure to be attributod to the expected "fiasco" of the Remedios tobacco, entailing a consider able defiCLency, wh1ch wlll have to be by a more suitable leaf. The Part1dos tobacco selected for th1s purpose w1ll no doubt fully answer the require ments of our Northern neighbors. who 1t seems have a pecuhar fancy for the SJZC of the Partidos carrots, which, durmg th1s season, w1th few exceptions, hardly exceed a hand and a quarter. The pr1ces allow ed_ for assorted lots, smta6Ie for the U mted States market ,been steadily advancing, and as th1s leaf will yet. suffer a very constderable loss of weight be fore 1t becomes fully mal'ketable, we thmk It probable that 1t may be po8Slble to sh1p Vuelta AbaJo leaf at about the same rates Th1s competitiOn can hardly result m anythmg b11t the defeat of the mfenor article/ and holders of Partidos may find to their cost that there is a lnmt to the price of th1s article over whiCh 1t 18 dangerous to pass when there is abundance of superior leaf in the market. RemediosThe leaf so fa.r rece1ved from th18 district can only be CODSldered sample lots consequently are no fair cntenon of the general resuit of the crop. Ac cordmg to all accounts, however, the tobacco is too "tardido ;" the growers, moreover, continue pretending $110 per bale, which Qf Itself would be su11lcient to curtail operattons. Gibara-Nothing of special mterest has come to our knowledge from this department. Yara-As alread:y reported, the whole crop of this has Jl8ll8ed m.to hands of specuia:tors, and consequentlv we have no further remarks to offer Market.-There has been some litlle act1vity for Vuelt& Ab&Jo gQOds, manufacturers havmg commenced to lay m stocks; as yet they operate on a very lumted scale, only taking such "vegas as contain temprano leaf, the lower classes of wh1ch can be made available at once For the export trade there has also been some movement, good cured fillers bemg in de mand at from $U to $30 gold per qtl, according to quahty. For Partido leaf there 18 great excitement speculators and sbtppers for the United States have pretty nearly cleared out the 11tock offenng; the prices allowed range from 186 to $43 gold per qtl. Semi Vuelta AbaJO 18 also m request at from $38 to $45 gold per qtl, Blld low fillers contmue to be taken by our c1garette manufacturers at from $14 to $i2 gold per bale, according to bulk and quality.
