MOSDAY. ......MARCH IS,' 18T8. :--4\ ; ...?": ?'? ??? 11 I I'll- ... I ? 1 ? - N&w Hampshire. The cesult in New Hampshire is not to be Interpreted tnto a B teefc Republican vic tory. II is a triumph for President Haybs. Chaxdlkk, the mad bull, who bss been so bitterly assailing President Hay m and de claring that if Kellooo svas not elected Hirsswas not, has labored in vain. Cdani> lbs'8 exertions were fruitless. His suc cess could only result In the breaking down of the Republican strength in New Hampshire ; whereas the damage to the Bepublicans has been very slight. The Administration could nerer hold a party together sate by Its own popularity. If President IIates had lost the support of the party.; to which he nominally belonged the party would have been scattered and defeated. President Ratks's Journey through New Hampshire was a steady ti iumph from be Kinning to conclusion. The- people, not only in New Hampshire but in all parts of New England, displayed the kindest feel ing* towards the President, and in all elec tions in that section of the Union the Pre 'sident has triumphed wherever there has been an !&ue bearing upon his popularity raised. The President's conciliatory policy has triunSphcd. Even in Maine the followers of Mr. Blaine have shown their smartness by repressing the issue, Hates or no Hayes. Nothing in aDy of the New England States has occurred to prove a want of faith in the President and his policy. It Is good to see the determination with which the people have stood by the 'President. It fortifies his resolution and encourages him in his policy. It is time enough to determine upon the line of policy that leading men and parties shall pursue. A steady sup port of the policy which is fast uni ting ail sections promises better than anything else. After the establishment of the administrati/e policy, together with the peace and harmony of the people and the States, matters consequent may devel opc themselves orderly and successfully, with no disturbance and no detriment to the country. Politicians and partisans will have accommodated themselves to the peaceful condition of things, and there will be no exploitation of sectional malignity and ferocious partisanries. The Moffett Register. There is a serious falling ofl'in the revenue? of the Moffett register. This is not at all an indication or fault in the register itself, but of dishonesty in some liquor-sellers. If the judges, commissioners of the revenue, and police will now discharge their duty the returns will improve. Certainly cases of evident disregard of the law should not be passed by in silence by a judge and sworn officer, whose duty is to enforce the Jaws of the Commonwealth. Delinquency of the State's officers should no more be connived at than should delinquency in re porting honestly the tax of the register. The Legislature failed to pass the bill for enforcing more effectually the collection of the MoFFETT-regisfer tax. It was a great neg lect of duty by that body. We suspect that there was an indisposition to do anything to increase the revenues from that source. There was a minority who wanted to do this, but the large body of the General As sembly had no such desire, and, as we pre dicted, the bill being put off very unneces sarily only received a flirt of an Impulse at the heel of the session, and that being j soon exhausted it lies like a fish out of I water dead upon the shore. Nevertheless, if the judges and ether ? officers use proper efforts the register will yield a handsome revenue in spite of un toward influences intended to clog its ope rations. That Indomitable agent and genial gentle man, Major Hotchkiss, is indefatigable in - his efforts to advertise Virginia and the Chesapeake and Ohio railroad. We find the following reference to him in a laie Dans ville (New York), Advertiser: The Chesapeake and Ohio railroad, grow ing better year by year, is proving one of * Virginia's great blessings. It not only ad vertises the great mineral and agricultural wealth of Virginia and West Virginia, but it offers a short, cheap, and pleasant route . to all who wish to see this wonderful coun try for themselves. Any one who will ad dress Major N. H. Hotchkiss, the general travelling agent of the road, at Staunton, Va., will receive full particulars of the road and the country through which it runs, and if they ever'meet the genial Major on their travels they will learn more about Virginia matters than they ever knew before. England is in tbe " chip mood," or affects to be. Sussia says she is willing that any clause in Ibe treaty with Turkey tbat is ob jected to as bearing unfavorably upon the interests of any of tbe Powers shall be sub ject to the consideration of tbe congress. England demands that all the clauses of the treaty be submitted to tbe congress. An. impartial observer would think that Eussia's proposition ought to satisfy the parties represented in the congress, but England thinks some act of daring needed to recover tbe ground which she fancies she has lost by being too yielding to the ad-' vanccs made by Kussia. So she mounts the chip upon her head as a taunt to the Czar. Well, we conjecture that it matters not. The congress will settle the question whether tbe whole Kusso-Turkish treaty shall be laid upon the dissecting-table or only one clause at a time, and that one to which objection is made.' Senator Smith.? The Conservatives of Virginia owe a deep debt of gratitude to Senator C. T. Smith. It Is not too much to 'say the exertions of Mr. Smith have re sulted in tbe preservation of tbe party du - ring an alarming crisis. Possessed of rare abilities as a party, manager, clefir-beaded, shrewd as a political leader, industrious and energetic, cultured and practical,' he proved himself to be the man for the hour when Badicals and Independents were abontto assume control of the Conservative organi zation. The triumph mf the Lee caucus in the matter ef tbe State offices was the triumph of Senator Smitb, for be originated and engineered the whole of tbe proceed ings of the Conservatives.?

You surely can find space enough in your valuable paper to enlighten the tax-pay era on this subject; for nothing is more certain than that half a crop of good and Use tobacco will enable them to dis cbarge tbeir duty as tax-payers far better than a full crop of the miserable stuff now offered in our market. It is true our manu facturers are comparatively idle, awaiting the action of Congress on the tax question? and we believe it will take them until June or July .to determine whether it is proper to relieve industry at the expense of indo lence; but should toe tax be reduced we do not believe the price of leaf will be ma terially affected. The moment an advance takes place here in leaf the large crop and i cheap freights will flood us with western i tobacco, so that our only hope? buyer and seller? is a small crop t A letter Justr re ceived. dated England, 2d .March, has the following; "Things are intensely dull, but we don't tbink this is owing so much to the excitement ?about war as to the fear that your farmers are going to grow an other laroe crop of tobacco, which must in evltably send prices down to a very low level indeed. If they could be content to grow a very little, and take pains to wake that little pood, they would be public bene factors. We are sadly disappointed that tine tobacco does not yet turn up at Rich mond. Our people iong for really fine, rich strips." We repeat that, in our opinion, if our planters do not return to the old fashion (old fogy, if you prefer the term) mode or cultivation we almost despair of sendingour English and Scotch friends these '?fine, rich strips." Another letter, dated Scotland, 26th of February: "We earnestly trust this mis erable Eastern question may be settled peacefully, but wc have uo great fear, though war should be the ultimate issue, that it will affect our tobacco market in a material degree. We, however, are still ap prehensive thjit our market may be glutted by shipments of strips wbich are really not required." By "strips which are not re ally required " our friends mean common and medium strips, of wbich there are enough now in Great Britian and going forward this season to supply the demand for the next two years. Let the planters of Virginia give us a small and tine crop, and they will not only benefit us who buy, but tbey will very materially benefit themselves. Tobacco-Dealers. The following is an extract from the Monthly Report of John C. Mailer & Co., London. It is dated March 1st : " Great curiosity is now felt as to the probable action of the planters; should tbey again aim to raise a large crop, heed less of the low prices which tbey will have to take, tbe effect will undoubtedly be still further to depress the value of tobacco in tbe various markets of the world. We feel quite sure that it would be better for them, and all others interested in tbe tobacco trade, to grow less quantity and make greater efforts to cultivate better tobacco." THE OTHER SIDE OF THE QUESTION". Louisa county, March o, 1878. Editors of the Dispatch: Dear Sirs.? In jour issue of the 1st of March I find an article from tbe tobaceo?dealers, ad dressed through your paper to tbe planters of Virginia, in which there is some good advice; but I must say that I do not agree With them in all they say. ?? That the reputation of our Virginia to bacco is not as good as it was twenty years ago I freely admit; but that it is owing en tirely to the inferiqpty of its quality I am not disposed to admit, and will say a few words in defence of tbe planter who raises a good article of the old staple crop of Vir ginia. To tne numerous class of tobacco raisers wbo come not under this head I would say. Listen to tbe advice of the deal ers given iu the article of March 1st. Twenty years ago the tobacco-dealer of Virginia was a " different manner of man v from the dealer of the present day. Most of that honorable class have passed away, and others, from difl'erent causes, l^ve ceased to be dealers, and with them bas gone the reputation of tbe Virginia leaf. They sacredly guarded that reputation by dealing exclusively in Virginia leaf. Did tbe Thomases, Bardgroves, Cosbys, or any other manufacturer of tbeir day, work into tbeir famous brands such vile counterfeits as are now poured into our market from the West ? Is the quality of a No. 1 "Western hogshead better than the same quality of twenty years a?jo ? Or is the quality of a good Virginia filler of a given standard inferior to the same quali ty of twenty years ago ? No ! Then why is it that the prices paid for our sun-cured fillers are so far below what was paid for the same article twenty years back ? Because tbe dealer of the present day has no Virginia reputation to guard. More particularly is this tbe case with our manufacturers of to day. Very few of them have a brand which is made up exclusively of Virginia tobacco. They have put upon the market a mongrel brand, made up of the Virginia filler and a porous, slimy nondescript, which has to be subjected to a dose of gum-arabic to give it the appearance of tobacco of natural stami na. With this kind of a brand they have fed the consumer until his taste has become corrupted, and he now wants nothing bet ter, and could not appreciate a good chew if it was his good fortune to taste one. The manufacturer buys our tiller now for about one third less than he paid for the 9ame article before the. war, and he pays for a -western filler to work with it at least dou ble what it could be bought for before the war, which reduces the demand for our filler, ana consequently tne price 100. The dealers say:_ "The West, with its comparatively virgin soil, can and will pro duce the quantity, let Virginia produce the quality." 2*ow, -gentlemen dealers, this is good advice. Every planter would do bet ter to raise a good article tbanJie would if he raised an inferior one ; but when you put his good article upon a level with one which is intrinsically far inferior because it resembles it in appearance, and can be dis guised so as to pass for the genuine Vir ginia chew. You do the raiser of good Virginia leaf a great injustice, and take away the.incentive which naturally follows good prices and a fair shake. You advise the plauter who has been rais ing twenty hogsheads to make ten, and he who has been making ten to make live, and even to make a greater reduction. How are we to make a living if we make only a half crop and have to compete with the western planter, who has '? comparatively a virgin soil," and makes a full crop; for which he gets nearly as inuch on an average as the best raiser of the best Virginia sun-cured fillerp Give us better prices lor our sweet sun-cured tiller and pay less for the western . bull-faced, slimy, coarse-fibred nondescript, which every" judge of the article knows bas no pretensions to a tine article of chewing tobacco, and your brands will stand higher with the consumer, which will enable you to pay us the higher prices. Our strips do not stand as high in foreign markets as they did formerly, but I do not charge the planter with the depreciation, and feel confident that the dealer is more to blame than the planter, us many, of tbem have passed the western strips for Virginia production. ' 1 freely admit that there is a large proportion of the Virginia crop ? raiBed by , careless white planters and ne groes? which will not compare with the ciops of twenty y ears ago; but there are ji number of planters who raise a No. 1 arti cle, and oughtto get better prices for it if the quality was appreciated by the dealers of the present day. ; ! ; The wilter, Jkh no complaint to make against the dealers except the? one already made, and feels under obligations to many of them for their appreciation of liis crops when offered upon the market, but feels jtontiLgeqt tb4 the gun-cured fillers raisedin tity counties ot.kouisa, Spotsylvania, Caro line, FUiv*una,v and portions of S several $#?& ^oantles, are not appreciated as t bey rw.er* IB UitJV jioniy auu , . n,? tribute to the working of 2 western Jeaf with the Virginia article, which twenty years a^o stood far in the front of.^gxmt rafted in any other part of the world; and it deserved to stand in the' front rather there is no other place known to man where tobacco for chewing purposes has the natural sweetness and grows to such perfection as It doe* in the portion of Vir ginia beforeiaentiened. '-"-Micas. Jobs X. Gllllat A Co.'s Circular as to I \ : i; *, . Tobncco. ?'?f' f London, 4 Cbosby Sqcake, ) March 1, 1878. .) The dullness In our tobacco market no ticed In our la?t circular was even more de cided during the past month. The sales of American tobacco are fully estimated at 400 bogabeads, and if we except one transaction of about 100 hogsheads Kentucky stripts of good class, reported sold on easy terms, the business done was entirely retail and mostly in low-priced grades. The reasons for this inaction are very ob vious, and so long as tbey are in force we can look for nothing more than a bare con sumptive demand at irregular prices. , The latest advices from tbe western States, al though rather disappointing as to tbe quali ty of the crop now in hand, confirm, we think, tbe expectation of a large make of stripts, and at a cost which looks reasona bly safe. From Virginia we regret to have very poor accounts of tbe quality of tbe crop, and should recommend much caution in handling tobacco that may be unsuited for our market, and at prices apparently above. those current in the West. John K. Gilliat & Co. The Tobacconists Excited.? PAi/adeJ pAte, March 15.? A meeting of retail to bacco-dealers was held to-day to take action relative to an order recently issued by tbe eollector of internal revenue requiring re tail dealers to sell manufactured tobacco from stamped boxes only. The retailers contend that as they have stocks on band of tine-cut and smoking tobacco not in original packages, but on which tax has been paid, tbe sudden enforcement of tbe law, which is an old one, would seriously in jure the business of many of them. A committee was appointed to consider the subject, have a conference with the col lector and commissioner, and report to an adjourned meeting. MARRIED. Married. March 12th. 1878, by the Rev. J. A.
