Themnrkct has been very inactlvo slnco
our last report, owing partly to tho pecu
liar stato of tho atmosphere, It not being
fuvorablo to the handlirig of tobacco. Tho
receipts thercforo bavo been light. Tba
past week, howovor, has boon moro favora
bio nnd tho breaks show a pretty fair sup
ply with satisfactory price nnd a littlo
more animation than for torno tlmo past.
Nothing has been developed 'to causo us to
chango our views as stated In our report of
March 18tb. Wo cannot seo from tho
lights before us, and wo havo certainly
used every means la our powor t kocp
woll up with tho tobacco trade, that there
can bo any material change from" present
prices, and still advlso a conversion of
the present crop Into money as early as
Wo are pleased to seo that tho planters
havo taken Jadvantago of our luggertlont
and aro handling their tobacco with moro
care, and aro now sending it to market in
a more attractive style, as regards cooper
ngo and prizing. Wo again say that too
much caro cannot be used In preparing
tobacco for salo.
As to the cominc crop, wo are desirous
that each planter, for his own benefit,
suouid tako particular pains in tho culturo
and housing of tho crop of '71. Roduce,
if possible, tho quantity, nnd -iinprovo
tho quality, forltli In tho powor of the
planter In this Immodiato vicinity to pro
duce ns good tobacco as is raised anywhoro
in tbo world. It Is an exploded Jdea that
good tobacco cannot bo produced only In
certain localities. It Is in tho knowing bow
to cultlvato and handle tho crop as much
ns in tho soil. Tobacco is now cultivated
i.i thlrtystates of tho Union ond It do
volvc upon you'to dotcrmino whether our
section cannot produco a tobacco that will
class favorably with other tobacco, In any
By a very careful comoarison of tho dlf.
fcronl homo markets, wo aro moro fully
convinced than over of the suporl
or advantages wo possets, .and
buyer aro' avail In e themselves
of tho. cheap rote of freight offored at
this market, to ail points, caused by a lecl
timet and healthy competition of the var
ious lines or transportation centering here.
We regret to soo Now Orleans evident
ly trying to "bull" tho markot. In their
reports of April 29th they aays "Advice
rom Kentucky concerning the growing
crop are quito unfavorable. In many lo
calities tho plants havo been nearly all
killed by frost or eaten up by the bugs,
"fills will retard the crop and of course
expose it to greater vicissitudes." That Is
a bull. Again they soy, saraodato: "Thftro
has been no demand whatever for tho now
crop. Wo quoto ns follows, etc.," giving
quotations nt higher figures then tho samo
grado has cotntnnnded in any other local
market; then "receipts nro increasing
rapidly and a liberal stock will soon bo ac
cumulated." Whon that markot is stock
od wo prcsumo they will commence sell
ing, and plnnters will then reallzo tho dif
ference between quotations and actual
sales, in a market whero thero is "no.Jde

of 1871, il is simply a mnttor of imnossl-
