Consumption of Beer.
There is reason to b-ilieve that the con.
sumption of this beverage is rapidly in
creasing in tbe' United States. This is
owing, in part, to the great increase among
us of uermans and other foreigners, wnosa
chief drink is beer,. in part to an increasing;
taste for it among Americans, also (par.
to its cheapces, when compared with
other drinks. While domestic spirits pay
to tbe revenue two dollars aiscal on and
foreign 6pirii are heavi y taxed both by
the tariff and tbe cost ot exchange while
tea pays a duty of 20 percent, and coffee
one of nearly 50 per cent, etc , beer fays
only a tax of about 3 cents a gallon. This
very low tax is an ..anouutiy in cur
internal revenue system, . since bier
treated nti'.her as an Intoxicating
liquor like spirits, nor as a nutritive)
and gentle! stimulant like tea and cofiees
The tax upon tbis drink is too light to ef
fect trie price of it, and tha consequence is
that those who use it gat nearly as large a
quantity of it for the same money, as they

raged one barrel per head, or 6,000,0000
barrels, in laju, tne consumption was
8,000,000 barreli, or an average of two
thirds of a barrel per annum to each per
son. But in 1864, tha consumption rose to
20,000,000 barrels, or an avurage of one
barrel to each person, the present popula
tion being 20,000 000.
