Sales of Tobacco.
Roos Hu., S. C., Nov. 12, 1875.
To the .Ed. News and Courier :
Please let the public know
through your valuable paper wheth
er it is right and legal to sell tobac
co by the box, (in other- words an
unbroken package,) and cigars the
same, by the box ? Several parties
are desirous of knowing the law on
this subject. We all have $5 licences,
and the question arises whether we
can sell by the box ; also, aan farm
ers sell to hands without license ?
Your prompt notice of this will give
a great -deal of satisfaction, in this
part of the State any way.
Yours, truly,
R. T. Mar.
AMSWER.
Any person or firm who has paid
a special tax, or license, as a dealer
in manufactured to'acco, is author
ized to sell tobacco, snuff or cigars
in any quantity, no difference being
made between wholesale and retail.
The package must be marked, brand
ed and stamped as required by law,
and when the goods are retailed they
must be kept in the stamped package
until a sale is made. The law de
fines a dealer in tobacco to be :
"Ev'to.ry person whose "business it is
to sell, or offer for sale, manufac
tured tobacco, snuff and cigars ;"
and, in case of farmers, the depart
ment has decided that ,when they
make it a business to keep tobacco
for sale to their workmen, or to issue
as rations, receiving pay therefor,
either in labor, in produce, or in
any other manner, they become lia
ble as dealers. The law also makes
it the imperative duty of every such
dealer to destroy the package and
stamp as soon as it is emptied.
This information is given us by Col
lector Ransier.
THE THara Trau MOVEMENT ---The
fact that Forney's Sunday Chroni
ce, the Sunday .Nationat Intelli
gencer, and Col. Fitzgerald's Phila
delphia Sunday City Items all came
out on Sunday last in favor of the
third term is looked upon by some
of the guidnunos a. indicatmng the
formal braing of ground in that
movement. Quite likely, however,
the three papers opened voice to
gether on the same note by accident.
The Washington special of the Cin
cinnati Commercial, however, pro
fesses to have "solid foundation for
the statement" that the demonstra
tion means business. He says in
this connection that "there are ten
open and avowved advocates of the
project to be met with now, where
there was one prior to the elections.
Many Republicans apparently accept
the result as indisputably establish
ing the fact that the party cannot be
successful next year if Grant is not
their candidate for President, among
those who are most positive in this
belief in General Grant himself.-.

.A PnoroSITIon.-A wvriter in the
Christian Intelligencer agrees to
pay all the bills to support the
home and foreign missionaries, with
a magnificent remainder, out of the
waste in tobacco used by professing
Christians, and proposes that the
whole of this wasto be"aman
cent offering to the Lord." gi
The New~Orleans' iicayune says :
"The truth is, that the people will
- alwaya add to or substract from a
measure, the moral weight of the
men who propose it. In other
words, they must have confidence
in the law-makers before they will
y'ield respet and obedience to the

The sum awarded y the English
courts for pars onal injures on rail
roads during the year ending June
last, amotdnted- to $1,600%0^0) ed
for loss and damage to goods iu
transit, $1,310,000, a total of mioro
than two an4,ahajf millio s ox 1ol
lars, %ear' o-h'alf *h' avbrhgo
dividend. The August sums paid on
both considia Ione were by tho
London and Northwestern, $760,340.
The Great Eastern paid, nearly
$200,000 as - .a btoher's bill, but
only about $40,090 for goods. One
line alone, the Maryport and Carlisle,
which is probably a mineral railway,
had nothing to pay for killing and
maiming, and t4lo netrqpolitan 'dis
trict shows a similar blank, for a
similar reason, as to goods, although
the return does not include those
losses which pass through the eloak
room. The two underground lines
paid between $45,000 and $50,00,0 as
compensation for personal injuries,
although their liabilities are rostrie
ed by a remarkable provision intheir
acts to $500 in the case: of third
class passengers.
Is IT LAwFUr-"Justice," Writing
to the Marion S. 0., Merchant and
Farmer, cites an instance of the
marriage, at Mars' Bluff, of an elder
ly gentleman to his own niece, the
daughter of his sister, and asks
whether it be lawful &c. The Mer
chant di IFarmer replies to its cor
respondent by quoting the State
statute on this point which includes
this very relationship in its prohibi
tion of marriages, and deplores the
lack of morality, evinced in the
transaction, both on the part of the
contracting persons and tho minis
ter who officiated at the ceremony.
Gen. Jubal A. Early, president of
the southern historical society, says
that this association possesses a
nearly complete set of all the reports
printed by the Confederate depart
ments, including . the . president's
messages, reports of. battles, acts of
the Confederate congress an ' state
governments, etc. It also has a
full set of manuscript reports of Gen.
L ,ngstreot's corps, the papers of
Gin. J. E. B. Stuart, all of Gen. S.
D. Lee's corps, and many other
valuable reports of Confederate of
ficers, besides a number of federal
official reports.
For the fiscal year ending June
80, 1875, North Carolina paid inter
nal revenue taxes to the amount of
$1,629,984, nete-that is, after asses
sors, collectors, gaugers, weighors,
tasters, smellers, samplers, watchers
informers, and the whole brood of
them, had their share, which, no
doubt, was a good round sum.
An Englishman was boasting to a
Yankee that they had a book in the
British museum which was once
owned by Cicero. "Oh, that ain't
nothin,'' replied the Yankee ; "in
the musem in JDostons, tIpy've got
the lead pencil .that Noah: used to
check off the animals that went into
the ark."
Jacob Benjamin, aged fifty five, a
rich pawvnbroker of Baltimore, died
receiitly from erysipelas, which was
produced by the use ,of hair dye.
The 'deceased used the hair dye or
his whiskers, and it irritated his
throat, He then sha'redlbis whiskerE
off, when erysipelas sot in.
