OCTOBER 2. Proprietary stamp Decision Im portant to all Meal- as well as Manufacturers. The following decision and instruc tions ot the Commissioners of Internal Kerenue has just been received from Washington. AH parties interested will please read attentively and comply at once with the requirements of the law. " The stamp duty referred to i 3 as fol lows : Where the retail price is 'lb cents or less, 1 cent. Where the retail price exceeds 2" cfls. and not over 50 cents, 2c. Where the retail price exceeds 50, and not over 75 cent, 3c. Where the retail price exceeds 75c, and not over $1, 4a " Where the retail price exceeds $1, the amount of stamp is 2 cents for each 50c or fractional part thereof. Ws. E. French, Collector. decision no. 126. Treasury Department Office of Internal Retinue Washington, Oct. '63. The stamp duties imposed in the first paragraph of Schedule C, in the act of July 1, 1862, having been deemed by many persons to apply only to proprie tary medicines, it becomes necessary to call the attention of manufacturers and dealers to the true interpretation of said schedule. In section 99, the subjects of the duty imposed in said schedule are spoken of as "proprietary articles;" in section 107 they are described by the words " drugs, medicines, preparations, compo sitions, articles, or things ; " in the pro viso to section 109 they are described as " medicines, preparations, and composi tions;" in section 110 they spoken of as "articles or commodities." In the first paragraph under Schedule C the articles or commodities made subject to stamp duty are distributed into four classes, as ; follows : 1st. Any preparation or composition whatsoever wherein the person making or preparing the same has, or claims to have, any private formula or occult secret or art for making or preparing the same. 2d. Any preparation or composition whatsoever wherein the person making or preparing the same has, or claims to have, any exclusive right or title to the making or preparing the same. 3d. Any preparation or composition whatsoever which is prepared, uttered, vended, or exposed for sale under any letters patent 4th. Any .preparation or composition whatsoever which is held out or recom mended to the public by the makers, venders, or proprietors thereof, as a pro prietary medicine, or as a remedy or specific for any disease, diseases, or af fections whatever affecting the human or animal body. The descriptions contained in these four clauses of commodities, and the first three are by no means to be treated as a mere limitation upon the fourth. The fourth class is limited and qualified by the provisio in section 107, which must be construed as heretofore explain J TV XT- 11 I mi ed in Decision No. 114. The mere fact of the publication of a formula, in one of the text-books or journals specified in that section will not exempt a prepara tion, compounded according to such for mula, from stamp duty, when the fact of publication is ignored, and the claim to a private formula or occult secret or art i3 distinctly set forth upon the labels and wrappers accompanying the preparation, as is usually the case in such prepara tions as Godfrey's Cordial, Betton's British Oil, Turlington's Balsam of Life, Lee' Bilious Pills, &c. All these articles belonging to either of the first three classes, such as inks, blackings, cements, sauces, flavoring ex tracts, polishes, culinary preparations, or compositions of any nature whatsoev er which purport to have been prepared under any private formula or occult se cret or art, or in the making of which the maker cairns any exclusive right or title, or which are prepared under any letters patent, are as fully subject to the stamp duty as those in the fourth class. From and after Oetober 1, 1863, none of the articles named in Schedule C, in cluding perfumery, cosmetics, and play ing cards, as well as articles in the above described classes, whether they are of foreign or domestic manufacture, can be lawfully offered for sale without hav ing the requisite stamp affixed. By the 27th section of the act of March 3, 1863, any person who shall offer for sale any of the articles named without the same be ing duly stamped, whether he is the man ufacturer or a dealer, is subject to all the duties, liabilities, and penalties im posed by the act of July 1, 1862, for a sale. All persons, whether dealers or manu facturers, are required to affix and duly Qancel the stamps at once upon all such articles as are offered for sale by them. Unstamped articles in the hands of per sons other than the manfacturers, which are merely 3tored in the original packa ges, and not offered for sale, will not be liable to confiscation: but all goods which are found exposed for sale upon their shelves or counters, or which have been removed from the original package, are subject to forfeiture under the pro visions of section 109, unless the requi site stamps are affixed and cancelled. It is not proposed by this office to re quire that the penalties of the law shall be enforced on account of the sale of un stamped articles in the original package prior to the first day of February, 1864, where such sales are made to dealers who purchase to sell again; provided, that in all such cases the purchaser shall be furnished by the seller with the requisite amount of stamps, which must then be affixed and cancelled as soon as the package is opened. The penalties of the law will be strictly enforced for any sales of unstamped articles, whether the same are of foreign or domestic manufacture, when such sales are made on or after the first day of Februarv, 1864. ! J' Every person who offers any such ar ticles for sale, will be required by the Assessor of his district to take and sub scribe, monthly, the oath No. 34, which, together the affidavits of manufacturers of proprietary articles. in the office of the collector, instead of of being transmitted to this office as heretofore. If the manufacturer of proprietary ar ticles, or the wholesale dealer in the same, acting in good faith, and upon ; such information as he can obtain, affix es a stamp answering to the retail price ! in the market where he deals, or in the vicinity thereof, he will be exempt from proceedings tor a penalty, even though L J?; u ru- in other parts of the country such cles may be Sold at enhanced prices; prepared to make up to itHk on the most reason -hot if ariv anMi arf ir-lp arp suhspfiaentlT able terms.

When any manufacturer of proprietary articles, who has paid to this office a sum ofmomey in lieu of the stamp duties, upon articles manufactured and sold since September I, 1862, without having the requisite stamps amxed, shall turn- ish satisfactory proof to this office that he has actually affixed stamps to any of ; the identical articles upon which the duty has been thus paid heretofore, the I amount thus affixed will be refunded in j stamps; prodded they are thus affixed ! on or before the first day of January, i 1864.

The Missouri Democrat of Friday says: The river fell half an inch yesterday. but will be rising to-day. The upper riv- j ers are improving. There was rare sport in St. Louis yes- ' terday. Snowballing was one of the principal amusements; and we don't ! know but that sleighs jingled along the ! streets by moonlight. At all events, there was an unprecedented snow storm. It set in gently at first, and continued gen tly all day, but the snow increased in volumes until so dense did it become that a steamer's outline could hardly be distinguished two hundred yards from shore. The snow continued falling all i day, and filled the streets and the levee to the depth of six inches or more. This put an end to steamboat business almost universally over the wharf. The little snow HaKes clung to tne steamers, so that they became each a separate ava lanche on its own account The military guard remained on duty at the levee through the day and in the storm. Their blue great coats, buttoned to their chins, were turned to white, and their muskets were shaded with snow. We heard of no attempt yesterday to burn a steam boat The snow would have quenched the flame The river will certainly rise, from the great amount of snOsr that has fallen. Much of it will, however, sink into the earth, which is warm and unfrozen. We presume the river rose two inches last night. There is at least 4 feet 10 inches perhaps 5 feet in the channel to Cairo. There is probably 10 feet below Cairo. To Reokuk there ia 3 feet in the chan nel In the Illinois there is 30 inches scant from the mouth to Peoria. There is 30 inches in the Missouri from the mouth to Miami, and probably 4 feet above that to Leavenworth. At the last named place the Missouri rose a foot from Saturday to Monday last We look, therefore, to hear of 4 feet all the way out. in the course of two or three days. On the 19th there was 8 feet of water on Harneth Shoals, and rising fast at Nashville and below. On Monday the Upper Mississippi was rising slowly at Davenport, having swoll en 3 inches there, and more at Du buque. Captain James Hughes, of Nashville, purchased of A. Hamilton & Co , last Monday, the steamboat J. H. Baldwin for $30,000 cash. Captain J. N. Cor bitt is going to take charge of her, and Ben Egan goes as clerk on her. We trust that these fine fellows will come along this way soon with the Baldwin. They are old navigators in the St L'ouis and Nashville trade, and we should like to see them restored to the yearning bosoms of their St Louis friends. We regret to learn that the steamer LaCrosse struck a snag at King's Land ing, on Sunday, and sunk. She was in Government employ, and bound up the Cumberland river. We are without par ticulars. The Cincinnati Enquirer of Wednes day says: "The Pilots' Association, we learn, have advanced the price for piloting boats to Nashville and back to $200, al lowing thirteen days for the trip. They are to receive $10 for each additional day. " Shipments are made to Nashville at $3 50 per hundred, and to Memphis and the lower Ohio at $1 25." The Louisville Journal of Saturday says: The river at this point was at a stand last evening, with 2 feet scant in the ca nal. It will doubtless be rising to-day. There is a rise at Pittsburg, and steady rains there Thursday night and yester day. Private advices inform us that the river commenced rising at Cincinnati . J 1J ri, yesieraay evening, mere is also a re ported rise in the Scioto and Muskin- fum. The Monongahela is rising at Irownsville, and there is a rise of 3 feet in the Youghiogheny, a tributary of the Monongahela The rains of Thursday mght and r riday appear to have been general along the Upper Ohio, and there is some reason to hope for a coal-boat rise. There are at present over four millions bushels of coal, in barges, above Pittsburg, awaiting a rise to descend the river. The Tennessee river Is rising very fast, having already swollen over ten feet The Nashville Journal of Friday says: The river ia rising again gradually. Its water is becoming more turbid. Those familiar with its depth, at various points, say there are about five feet of water on tne snoaia snouid tms depth continue a few days, we may anticipate a fine fleet of steamers and great activity at the landings. Those fleet and elegant steamers, the Jacob Strader and Telegraph No. 3, have undergone the most complete re pairs at Mound City, and, as soon as the river rises, will enter the trade from Lou isville to Memphis. There was quite a fleet of steamers in port here on Saturday. The Hetty Gil more went to Rumsey with a magnificent trip, but being unable to pass the locks she returned to this city and discharged her freight, and left in the evening for Louisville. Capt. Combs was in com mand. The Colonna arrived on Saturday morning, and was pressed into Govern ment service and will go to Nashville. The difficulties of navigation render it impossible to announce with accuracy what packet will be here for Louisville to day. Either the Colossus or J. T. Mc Combs may be expected. Both are great favorites with the traveling public r The Colossus arrived from Louisville yesterday morning, and returned in the afternoon. The J. T. McCombs will certainly be here this morning, and leave at noon for Louisville. The May Duke is due to-day from Cairo, and may be expected to go out with the mails at 2 o'clock this afternoon. The Emma is loading here with Gov ernment freight for the Cumberland. She left last evening. The Charley Bowen, tv learn, has been pressed into the 0-'-"riiment ser vice at Paducah. The news yesterday from above is very inspiriting to steamboat men. Capt. J. B. Hall's new wind-mill was put into operation yesterday, but the wind was too light to determine its work ing capacities. J. B. used a different kind of a wind mill a few years ago, when the Enquirer was in existence. The James Gray leaves for Bowling Green this evening. REGULAR PACKETS. LOW Water Arrangement.
