Tho Baltimore Commercial a few days ago
made some sensible remarks upon tho trade
of that city, and which will apply with cqnal
force to other trading commnnlUes. The
Commercial alleges that the citizens of Bal
timore relied confidently npon getting a
large proportion of the southern trade when
the war was ended, on account of their south
ern sympathies, but that they havo been dis
appointed in this expectation, that even the
Southern Aid Society has failed to bring
southern favors in tho shape of business pat
ronage. Our Baltimore contemporary sayst
"Anil not alono haa Baltlmora baan deluded
with laeh a belief Our city baa iharad It to ft
rraatar or laaa derrea with Norfolk, Charlatton,
Sftraaoab, and mndry otbar placai alonj tha eoMtj
for,wbI1a tba roTolaUooUti of Booth Carolina wara
proclaiming It u ona of thalr chlafaprlDg of
tlon bafora tho eofifliotbecaD,alI know bora that
It hai baan a marTalloai ill malm to oar city In III
movement! to ktap In good ttrma with tho wholo
rrflon tonth of nt.'
Tliis illusion having been dissipated, the
Commercial counsels the merchants and
business men to abandon tho plan of thcJ
Mutual Admiration, Mutual Congratulation
Society, and mako it for the interest of south
ern tradors to stop fn Baltimore, instead of
pushing on to New York and Boston for
their goods.
As certain as water will run down hill,
men will buy their commodities where the
greatest inducements are held out In the
way of cheap prices and a pleasant sojourn.
Look at Richmond; that city sacrificed every
tiling to the southern cause, and ) et southern
merchants would no more think of making
their heavy purchases there, when they can
buy cheaper in northern cities, than they
would of biting off their own noses. People
will buy where they get tho cheapest and
best, and Richmond may die, so far as Dixie
is concerned, unless Richmond can mark
down goods to New York prices.
In our own city tho law of trado Is violated
by merchants and lousiness men to their self
Injury. Kven In retail trade a person can
bay in Baltimore a smull bill of goods enough
lower to "mako it an object" to make the
trip to that city. Not a day posses but some
yonng men are going oer to Baltimore to
purchase a suit of clothes, saving money
enough by the operation to pay expenses and
have a good time. This ought not to be so ;
it is tho resnlt of an old-fogy, cfleto policy,
unworthy of enlightened business men.
dicourugcmciit or KnterprIo tu
VlrglulK.
Tho spirit of enterprise manifested In Vir
ginia under the new regime Is aptly illus
trated by tho experience of a showman who
has just returned from an "exhibition in
Alexandria. In addition to the United (States
license for a gift show, vhich costs $10, a
United States license for juggling, which
costs $20, a United States tat of two and a
half per cent, upon the gross receipts and
tho general income, tax, ho was compelled to
pay to tho corporation of Alexandria $5 per
night, and to tho State of Virginia $2 50 per
nigh Tor city and Stato licenses, with the
trilling addition of the cents per head for all
who should purchaso tickets. Of course tho
class of bJiows which get only moderato rt
ceipts, and lcavo a large portion of tho same
with the hotel-keepers and tradesmen of the
tonn. will bo kept away entirely, and Vir
ginia will enjoy the circus and other grand
shows, which sweep money out of the State
by tho bushel
Another brilliant Bpiclmcn of Virginia
policy is tho prohibitory tax imposed by the
legislature upon the ojster trade. By it any
person who shall take outers from any of the
creeks or inlets of the State without permis
sion of the owner, shall bo confined in the
penitentiary for not less than three normoro
than the years. I'ersons planting ojaters
for the purpose of Bale, shall pay a tax of two
per cent, upon the gross sales for the year
ending February 1st; penalty, a lino not less
than 3100 nor more than $500. Ecry per
son catching oysters must obtain a licence,
for which he shall pay four dollars; penalty,
a fine not less than 3100 nor more than
$500. Every captain or officer of a vessel
carrying oysters from Virginia must obtain
a UcenBC, for which ho shall pay a tax of three
dollars per ton for every ton said vessel may
measure; penalty, a fine of not less than
$500 nor more than $2,000 for each otTence.
The Inspector has power to attach the ussel
In case of a refusal tu obtain a license.
I will bo obscnedthat If a steamer of one
thousand tons, for Instance, carries so few
ecn as one bushel of oj stern, tho captain
must get a license, for which ho shall pay tho
sum of $3,000.
Tho result of this is, that Virginia oysters
aro allowed to rest quietly in their beds, and
that oysters for tho market and for planting
aro procured in Man land waten-, which will
furnish a supply for ears to come. Mean
while, Virginia will lone the advantages of
trade with ojster vessels, which has been of
great benefit to tho people that mo on her
shores.
Tho Virginia legislature evident! thought
tho Northerners would sweep down upon their
State and fatten upon its spoil, and lhere
fore they did what thoy could to shut it up
liko an ojster, and compel it to live like u
lubcrnating animal, by Bucking its own cluws.

I-or. bo mo time a Question of treat im
portance has been pending between the com
raercial houses of this city engaged in tho
foreign trado and tho Imperial Govern
ment By Maximilian's decree of February
10th ultimo, an additional duty of 30 per
cent, was added to tho tariff then in force.
The merchants of the nort claimed, and
with reason, that this could not annlv to
merchandise in store which had been im
ported months, and some of it 'even ears,
beforo the publication of this decree; Unit tho
very laci mat such merchandise was on nana
and had been kept ao lone was a proof that
it was in but little demand, and would prob-
aoiy nave io do so hi ai a loss, ana tnat now
to force It to pay an additional duty, not
contemplated or known at the time of its im
portation, would be to Jnvolvo in ruin many
of the merchants, and to expose them to
losses as unjust as injurious. It was also
urged ttiavsuch a measure Was In violation
of tho organic law of the empire, which estab
lished the principles that no law ever should
have retroactive force.
1 or these reasons the question has been a
verv .rraTO one between tho commercial
honses and M, llollan, (a French subject,)
tno director oi mo uustom jiouses oi me
Gulf. lint Maximilian, at the petition of the
latter, and overriding the express provisions
oi me organic law, nas oruerea not oniy mat
the merchants must pay this additional duty
upon their cITccts now on hand and previ
ouhly Imported, but that if they do not de
liver a lull a'ceountof all merchandise on
hand within tho term of three dajs, they
shall be obliged to pay sixty per cent, addi
tional duty in place of tho thirty per cent.

raary. It therefore follows that not only are
ri'iiuirvmi'iiifi i'SLuu..M.ru mat arc cui.in.ry
to all tho principles of justice recognized
throughout the world, bnt suddenly and on
the moment there, are established, and even
in cases of doubtful interpretation, now sys
tems of penalties under an arbitrary legisla
tion heretofore unknown. Th,cse are entirely
new occurrences for this country, and have
caused a profound sensation throughout the
commercial community.
The tariff has been suddenly raised or
lowered before, and merchants have been
exposed sometimes to serious losses and at
other times have gained upon their Blocks on
hand ; but they have never before been ex
posed, in addition, to ret roacth e law s and the
i.i.jui.i.u.. ui jirniiuv us nuw aim unriuin-
.led as they are arbitrary nnd unjust. What,
lowcver, makes this case more remarkable is
that It Is a matter of public notoriety that
both tho Minister of France and Maximilian
recognize and admit the justice of tho post
tion taken by tho commercial houses of this,
tho principal port of tho country, and pro
nounce tho measure an iniquitous one ; bnt
their fear of Napoleon is so great that they
are unwilling to act contrary to any measure

lieio Into the greatest uncertainty. No mer
chant knows now what to calculate upon or
what to expect, and the belief Is that this
measure Is only tho beginning of a course of
simiiur exactions uesigneu to meet the extra
ordinary necessities caused by the pecuniary
embarrassments of Maxumhan's govern
ment. Tho ordhnry revenue from till sources is
not sudlcient to meet even half the present

possible-means of extorting ftindi wherevtr
they can bo found. As tho only class that
has availnhle means it tho commercial com-
m unity, ft follows that upon this class theso
exactions arc likely almost exclusivity to
fall. How it will bo possible to continue im
portations under these circumstances it is
not'easy to see.
Tho Knghtih minister, it is said, has already
interfered in tho nutter; but thero is little
hope of anything being done so long as the
pecuniary necessitus of tbo situation aro so
great and the rnnih inntmuo to treat this
count rj as the bpaniards did as a place to

The United States naval squadron ordered

In addition to these there will be a reserve
force consisting of several vessels now fitting
out at the IJrooklyn Navy Yard, and the
summer practice squadron of the Naval
Academy. "
The seven vessels composing the fiyinir
squadron are now ready for service, and will
rendezvous at Kastport, Me., during the next
week. They will remain in that vicinity until
the 1'cnfan excitement subsides, when they
will visit various points on the coast of Can-

boats Don and De Soto were ordered to the

Nations that hav e al wa) s confessed to a policy

Tb. Choler. on th. Virginia
Tho following particulars havo been ob
tained respecting the cholera on board tha
steamer Virginia :
The irgmla sailed from Liverpool on tho
4th instant. The German passengers had.it
is saiu, occn at tbat port only a aay or two
previous to their embarkation and departure!
und thero was no sickness that was noticed
among them. At Quecnstown, Ireland, moro
passengers wcro retched, making tho wholo
number reported.
It did not appear that there was cholera on
board until tho 12th instant, when the vessel
nas eight davs out from Lherjiool. On that
day u man wno had had diarrha a suddenly
grew norse, and died. When the man died
the ship's surgeon doubted whether the dis
ease was cholera ; but on the same day two
other passengers were attacked.
Afterward the epidemic extended, and on
the passage the number of tho sick was ocr
one nundred. Tho cholera broke out on tho
Virginia in about the same place on tho
ocean at which the passengers of tho steam
ship Kngland were attacked.
At prcmnt there aro 21 or 22 of the stecix
age passengers prostrated with cholera
Kim en of them aro doubtful oases, and thrco
or four of theso aro in a state of collapse.
Nearly ull the other passengers are reported
convalescent, though there aro indications
that moro of tho passengers will bo attacked.
'1 here is no panic on the Virginia, and uo
fear whatever is manifested. The steerage
passemrers aro rmito cheerful, and it is not
expected that many more of them will die.
Tho sick passengers of tho Virginia wilt
iro givtn quarters on mo uaspiuu suip ruiiuu,
which Is at lied Hook. She will go down to
quarantine. One or two hulks mil be sent
to quarantine for tho accommodation of con-
alesccnt passengers.
