The tobacco crop of the States
South and West of Pennsylvania is
sot down as having been 29-1,000
hogsheads in the year 1873, and
114,000 hogsheads in 1874, in re?
spect to which it is, observed that
the prospect of so large a reduction
in 1874 naturally: led to an active
speculation, and prices, in a very
short time, advanced fully 100 per
cent., which has been maintained
to the present, time, the price of
Kentucky leaf tobacco having been
14 to 25 cents per ponnd April 30,
1875, as against 7$ to 12 cents per
pound May 1, 1874, which extraor ?
dinary advance checked exports,
and reduced purchases by home
manufacturers to the lowest limits.
This reduction in the crop was
caused by the prolonged drought.
In 1873, Kentucky produced 118,
000 hogsheads, and in 1874, only
30,000. In 1873, Virginia produced
02,300 hogsheads, and in 1874 only
35,000. In 1873, Ohio produced
25,800 hogsheads, and in 1874 only
4,000. Indiana and Illinois de?
clined from 37,000 to 10.000, and
Missouri from 20,000 to 10,000.
Maryland, suffered less than any,
only declining from 31,500 to 25,
000. The exports of leaf tobacco
this year -have been 20,087 hogs?
heads, (as against 33,355 hogsheads
in the'.same time last year. The

The symptoms of Liver Comphiint'are
uneasiness und puin in the aide. Somn
times the puin is in the shoulder, nnd is
mistaken for rheumatism. The stomach
is affected with loss of appetite and sick?

sometimes alternating with lax. The
bead is troubled with puin, and dull,
heavy sensation, considerable loss ot
memory, accompiuiicd with painful sen?
sation of having left undone* something
which ought to have been done. Often
complaining of weakness, debility and
low spirits. Sometimes many of the
