be out ot place, and perhaps be of some
information to tho board, I complied tbo
JoUowing trpm what Information I could

to obtain much front the Cubans, on ac
count of their dialect, conflicting some

poslble from aaiRcnite awirc, and Pn
them hurriedly and somewhat peculiarly;
as It were; being on the ataaraer In mid-

blllty of pen and Ink. Ihopo you wilt
excuse pencil scratches and blame the
itcamt r and not your humble servant lor
ail nips and. rudely constructed words.
I bavo cited the Havana flour market as
nearly as possible, which brings all other
merchandise In their ratio under the earn
Segglug to be excused lor shortness of
letter, Yours respccclully,
Tbo census pi 1371 ahows tho popula
tion of Cuba to be 1,600,000, of which the
city of Havana elaiini 280,000. We have
then a large population knocking at our
doors tor sustenance. Cuba Is In reality
on tho very doorstey ol our country, yet
abo calls upon us tor buUvcry little.
Why ? For the very reason of the enor
mous protective tariff Spain has imposed
upon her. Could a commercial treaty
be acconipllijla-d between America aud
Spain, we should soon bo called upon
for mill ions ot dollars -worth of our pro-
ducts; and the Mississippi Valley, on ac
count of, Its geogrsphl.td position and
outlets, would be the principle exporter.
The duty all told on one barrel oi Hour
amounts to 0 89. It la unnecessary to
quote all duties levied on general mer
chandise hi the same ratio, aud for brief
ness, aqd to glvo you.a general idea, we
will take llour alone and clto the con
They Import, from America annually
.$15,4efl,139 worth of various kinds of
merohandiso. While they, export to ns
to the value ol $71,304,37 annually. I
merely cite this to show low the scales
Flour Importations for 1877 were 269,
010 barrels, of which only" 20,610 came
from our country, and the balance irom
Spain. Tho Spanish flour we tind a very
much interior flour, In fact they are com
pellcd to mix a certain portion ot our
flour with theirs In orucr to make mer
chantable bread. The duties on American
Hour In American vessels is :
Per barrel 35 01
War tax 1 3S
Total $8 89
SpauUh Hour in Spanish vessels:
Ptity : $2 25
War tax..., , 50
Total $2 71
Making a total against us ot $1 07, In
favor of Spain. Wliilo on tjie other
hand If we ship via Spain In Span
ish vessels Irom our country, we tind
it to be $4. CI. Spanish flouf in Am tri
es n vessels 4.50. We havo here then an
arbitrary principle, brazenly showing
itself on every hand, and making us cry
aloud for a commercial treaty. Dealers
In subjugated Cuba of course are as
loud as we are ia our wailing, and desire
some sort of an arrangement whereby
they can import directly from us for all
tuerchandltw. Tho duty, if it Is ever
equalized,, we shall find instead ot being
railed up jn for $159,876 worth of mer
chandise annually, It wo a Id read much
better, something not less than $1,471,-
Ol Cuba's exports we get P0 per cent.,
Europe 8 per cent., and Spain 2 per
cent., showing again repetition ol
Havana' exports. For example we
submit below an account of sales ob
tained from a rclluble dealer In Havana:

have the government lights moved

Below we glvo a number ol reasons
why peoplo should buy their groceries
from I'ettis A Bird: !
1st. Because thelrstocka Is the largest!
troshffft and choicest In the city. .
2ud.ltccause Vhey tell goodsof every
kind cheaper than any other house In the
3rd. Recatifo they deliver goods more
promptly and In better shape than any
other house in the City. ,
4th. Because they keep the most eool
pleto stock, and persons ' desiring to
purchaso 1iuerent kinds ol goods are net!
compelled to go elrewhere because
Messrs. P. A B. have not got tbo goods
Tbeso we consider substantial reasons
why our readers should buy their goods
