/ FEB. 18. Reaaona Why New AppralHn' Sterea aud a New CaatoDJ. Houlle Ia Dealred. WASHINGTON, Feb. 15.-In reporting favor ably Rep esentat1ve Cox's bill appropriating $1,500,000 for the purchase of a site and erection of an Appraisers' Warehouse Ill New York city the House Comm1ttee on Pub he Bulld1ogs says that the prMent warehouse, while conveniently located, 1s a leal!ed build ing, poorly adapted f.'lr the appraisement of imported goodP, and the rental is equal to eight per cent. on an appraised valuaLion of the property at $810,000. The Custom House building, over a mile distant, should be lecated near tbe Ap pra1sers' Warehouse, as delays of twenty four hours now occur frequently, owing to their distance apart. The Custom House ts too small for the business and a new budd ing 1s now necessary. In case s1tes are pur chased for both warehouse and Custom Hause the sale of the present Custom House would, in part reimburse the Government for ltR outlay, as the ground on whiCh it 1s located is extremely valuable. The amendments to the or1ginal bill recom mended by the committee relate s1mply to deta1ls. We say, and judge every Importer in New York city w11l say, all the above is true. Our importers want a new Custom House and new Appraisers' Store3, and prefer to have them closer together than they now are. PHILADELPHIA NOTES. The difficulty existing at A. R oi g & Langs dorf's fine Cigar factory, on account of the tirm]l1efusal to allow the workmen the unfair hab1t of takmg 'thretl cigars each day per h11nd, has been adJusted to the ent1re satisfactiOn of both parties, so that the full quota of old hands have now resumed work as usual. The firm of J. D. L ehr & Co .. tobacco nnd eigara, Market st1eet, above Second, were closed out by the Sher1ff on the 9th mst. to satisfy a JUdgment creduor. The many fr1end of the courteous gentle man, Mr. Wm C. Hermann w1ll be -pleased to hear that he ha3 b ecome assoCiated wlth the rehable Cuban c1gar manufacturers, A. Roig & Langsdorf, Arch street, below Seventh. Th1s IS undoubtedly an advantage <>US connection for both p!lrties, and must result beneficially to buyer and seller. The manufacturer of fine cigars at 22l3 North Front street, in the peroon of Mr. Frederick Wambach, 1s meeting w1th un usual success 111 the mtroduct10n of his new brand of straight five-cent Cigars, "leland Queen." They freely go, and orders follow. Tho "Danealia" brand of cigars, manufactured by A lien & Marshall, 135 Arch street, are certainly all that is des1red for a nickel. If the steady demand for the brand is any criterion, an increased force of hands 18 necessary. Mr. P. C. Fulweiler, the fine cigar manu facturer, Arch street, ha.s returned .llome from Cuba, after a sojourn of seTeral weeks. He looks the picture of aealth, and reports the. purchase of Havana lea.f just the thmg for appreciative smokers. Mr. M. Leopold represents trade brisk for the different brands of hard tobacco manu factured by John Fmzer & Bro., Lomsvllle, Ky. Venable's brand of "Vmco" seems to have become firmly roo.ted in this market. Go where you wlll, the brand of hard tobacco called "Vmco" holds a promment place. The trade is waiting patiently the abolis'h ing of the internal tobacco tax. Not m vam is the hope. NEWS PHO!ll CVB.t, (Spencer's Price Current, tO ) Leaf-Busmess bas been qu1et dunug this week, owmg to the dull staoo of tradlillll all the conswming markets. Some demand is prevailing, however, for cutters at pr, u;es rangmg from $18 to $22 per qtl., accordmg to quahty and Bl.Ze. Stocks of all kinds of goods are at th1s t1me but insigmficant, espeCially 13ne leaf, and prices are 1u consequence fully maintained. The crop prospecLS iu the Vuelta Abajo dietricts are very gratifying, and a fioe though not abundant y1eld may now be loolred for. The late showers of rain have also somewhat 1mproved thecond1t10n of the leaf raised in the Part1dos, but on the whole' the favorable change of the atmosphere came too late to make up the great damage caused by the prolonged drouth in said district. The tobacco grown 10 Remedios 1s re:ported to have suffered severely on account of the absence of ram, consequently the chances for a light and leafy growth smtable for the German markets m this region are for the time being exceedmgly poor. On the other band the capaduras may lurn out to suit the requirements of the Umted States trade. Cigars-The demand continues dull, and ()n the whole manufaclurers have been <>bhged to reduce their work. In accordance w1th the petition presented to the Government several weeks ago by the AssociatiOn of the Havana C1gar .Manufac turers, 1 t has been resolved that Bald assoCiation should be consulted before grantmg the mscnpt10n of any new cigar or cigarette brand. According to last ad vices from Sagua the erop in that locahty is considerably reduced -on account of the prolonged drouth that has prevalled. AccorEling to a colleague, the crop at Re medios added up 47,753 bales, of whiCh 1,062 were exported to New York, 42,458 were sent coastw1se to Havana, and 1,037 remam stored at said place. The benefit received by the leaf in the Vuelta Abajo, from the showers which fell last week, coufirmed, and though reduced, the crop 1s expected to turn out of excellent .quality. CJonuectleut Valley Tobacco Markel. Assortmg contmues, and some of the grow -ers have nearly fimshed th1s part of thell' work. Our correspondent at Deerfield wr1tes, under date of Feb. 13: "The growers here are assorting the 1887 crop. All say that 1t weighs very light, some lots lesa than 1,000 pounds to the acre E'rom 9 to 12c in the bundle don't pay very large profits." Th1s corresponds with the statements of two other correspondents from Shelburne Falls aud Amherst. Whately-The work of assorting is well under way, w1th the same complaint as to the lightness of the crop. There are some ti ve or six lots of old goods remaming in the hands, and two or three lots of '86 goods.

Western Leaf-The raported sales for the week amounted to SOO of which 130 were for export. A letter rece1ved Friday from the West assumed that 500 hogs beads had been sold here for Spam at 5).4 cents per pound, the same to be delivered at the West. Inqu1ry among the commission merchants of our market d1d not just1fy the assumpt10o. Neither d j d the same proce dure verify the rumor wafted on breezes from the West that large lines ftom the-in fact, the whole of the-syndicate had been taken. Papa," said the boy, I neal'ly sold my dog to day." "Yes!" eagerly responde:l pap11. "How near, my boy," papa inqu1red, "did you come t'l a sale! Boy-" Why, I asked a man if he wanted to buy a dog, and he said No.' If he had sa1d I would have sold him. l'he market is firm, and prices a1e higher than on the first instant, but big transfers have not been effected he1e in the past week or two, all rumors to the contrary notwith standing. Manufacturers are buying &par ingly they are awaiting the solution of the tax quest10n; and the R eg ie buyers, It is said, can, for a ehort t1me, leave the bal ance of their reqmrements unfilled. A month hence, it is believed, the latter will increase their purchases both for current needs and to get a httle ahead for th11 1888 contracts February lB moat always-dull, and trade usually improves in March, when the foreign markets commence buying mor.e freely. Dark tobaccos seem hkely to advance within the next few weeks. 1 For the weBk just ended E. A. Stoppel, to bacco broker, 24 Beaver street, reports as follows:RECEIPTS. Week. hhds.

Both sales were made at a good living profit. Other and smaller sales were made, and the footing is pretty fair. A Maiden Lane packer sold, just as we go to press, about 300 Pennsylvania Seed, and a Water street broker 150 cases Little Dutch. Messrs. J. S.

Since the 1st of Jan uary there has been much weather unsuitable for the work of delivery, but almost cont1nuonsly su1table for handlmg m the barns. Hence while deliveries are light the crop is in a forward state of prepare.twn for dehvery, and as soon as conditions become favorable a much freer movement will begin. The loose tobacco market is qmet, and I have l:.eard recent transactiOn.

For eight years the g1owers of domestic Havana tobacco in Onon::laga and the adja cent counties have made rapid etridea in tne right duectwn in producmg Cigar leaf. The old style of Connecticut Seed leaf has been discarded, and Havana Seed tobacco has taken 1ts place. Grand results have followed. The farmers have learned much and have advanced 1n a most commendable man ner in the new methods of assortmg. Fillers are now put up neatly; bmders are rnade to appear almost like wrappers; wh1le the modtJrn wrappers are as neat and cleanly 10 appearance as though they had been taken out of a bandbox. The grower has learned that 1t is for his interest to assort and care for his tobacco as well aR he can and m ac cordance wlth the moot modern and approved methods. The success of Onon-:laga growers has been marked durwg the last eight years, for 1t 1s now admitted by the trade that the Havana tobacco pro(luced and packed in this section is as mcely and cautwusly cared for and assortea as any Cigar leaf ra1sed m the N ortbern tes. The Pennsy I vama, Con nectiCut and Massachusetts growers do thmr wor k well, no doubt, but no better than the Onondaga producer The barns and assort ID"" houses here are, in most mstances, well to promote success 1n assoriog and packmg leaf, and the sheds are well for curmg 1t.-Baldwmsvbacco from the H.iver to Black water.
