COMMERCIAL MATTERS, Etc.
Recently, at a creditors' meeting in Eng land, the man in trouble expiaintd - that not «▼en the ghost of a dividend was to be ex pected. One creditor bent on having some thing, oalled npon the bankrupt for a song It was given, the words being " Then you'd remember me." Probably they will. In consequence of recent decisions by the Courts of New York and New Jersey, holding seed dealers liable for all damages to custom ers through failure of crops, the seedsmen have agreed to print on all their packages, bill-heads and circulars, a notice as follows: •*< It is mutually agreed between ourselves and the purchaser of this package, that we do not warrant the same and are not in any respect liable or responsible for the seeds sold by us, or tor any loss or damage arising from failure thereof in any respect." It remains to be seen if the courts will consider this binding on the purchaser, as it has been decided that similar notic s on railroad tickets were of no nvail in protecting the seller. Blacklns. Polish is Undoubtedly a fine thing, whether -on our boots or on our minds, and we should all of us use it The kind of polish of which we speak, however, has not always been in use. One hundred and fifty years ago, or so, men of fashion were particularly careful not to have their elegant turned-up-toed footgear •defiled by the slightest speck of blacking. Day & Martin were the first men who de veloped the blacking trade to any extent that we have any record of. Mr. Day, it is re lated, was a barber in Eastcheap, London, or that vicin.ty, when one fiue day a soldier, who was dilapidated to the last degree, and had just been mustered out of the service, name into the shop and begged to be shaved, saying he had nothing to otfer in return but the best receipt for making blacking in the world. More out of good nature than any thing else, Mr. Day accommodated the poor fellow, and took his receipt in payment for the "scrape." This incident was the corner stone of Mr. Day's fortune. He manufactured some of the blaoking according to his receipt, and soon found that he had a good thing. After a while he succeeded in getting a partner with money, and they went into the manufaetur ing business. It was found difficult to intro duce the ertiole at first, in spite of its excel lenec, and Messrs. Day & Martin had reoourse to an amusing and ingenious expedient which waswcrthyof our latest days of advertising dodges. They would dress a number of men np in a smart and natty livery and then send them around to the neighboring stores to in quiro for Day & Martin's blaoking, instruct ing them to mention incidentally that their masters, " Lords -, could not possibly exist any longer without it." And this was the beginning of the immense business that they afterwards bailt up. The manufacture of blacking is one of the most simple that can be imagined. The ma terials of which the mixture is composed are molasses, bone-black, oil, and one or two miucr ingredients. The bone-black is, of •comae, ground np very flue. These materials -are pat in suitable quantities into a revolving tub. By means of machinery the mass is rapidly stirred in the opposite direction to that in whion the tab revolves, thus insaring the thorough mixture of the several ingre dients. In order to make this process still more thorough, the mass is afterwards ground iu a mill, after which it is all ready to be packed in boxes. CummpdoB of Imported Articles Dutlnc 1873 [New York Grocer.] The report of Mr. Edward Young, Ph. D , Chief of the United States Bureau of Statis tics, showing the com sumption of all imported articles daring the fiscal year, ending Jane 30, 1875, i3 a wonderfully oomplete and valuable book of reference. Taking a tew of the items most interesting to our readers, we may mention respecting salt, that within the year, notwithstanding the immense quantity of domestic need, the people of this country -ooDsnmed 719,913,406 pounds of foreign, which paid a duty of $703,967 24, gold. Of this, 110,249 440 ponnds were used in the Eastern S ates and the city of New York, for -caring fish. The consumption for this pur pose, it is shown, has increased from 57,830, '4)29 pounds in 1872, to the figures given above for lsst year. Then, again, the patriotic element was less demonstrative in 1875 than in 1873, as only 198,173 boxes of firecrackers were consumed against 225,193 boxes in 1873, but as each box contains torty packs, and the duty is 2£c. per pack, the boys contributed the sum of $198, 173, gold, to the revenue of the country last year. Thin comes the little " fish boiled in oil,' tbe sardine, of which 945,585 quarter boxes, 100,509 half boxeB and 1662 boxes were used, and these paid into tbe Treasury, for duty, the sum of $35.610 88, gold. The extent of the foreign dried fruit trade is shown by the consumption of 19,334, 458 pounds of currants, 2,826,577 pounds of dates, and 19,361,980 pounds of prunes, all paying a duty of lo., gold, per pound. Aiso, 30,501,361 pounds of raisins, valued at $2,443,155 and paying a duty of $672,532 gold at the rate of 2Jo. ■%) pound. Of Aborts and nuts 5,901,907 pounds were demanded, and of almonds 3 945,896 pounds. Figs to the extent of 4,659,860 pounds were used, and at 24c. per pound dnty, paid into Unoie Sam's big pocket book the sum of $357, -824, gold. Of foreign rice the statistics of consump tion show 50.231,223 pounds cleaned, 495,740 pounds uncleaned, and 563,392 pounds paddy, yielding to the government $1,274, 146 34 doty. The opinion is universal that immense •quantities of chicory are used for mixing with -coffee, yet in tbe year under consideration only 3,758,268 pounds were withdrawn from the custom-houses of the country. • Another point which furnishes food for re flection is that the invoice value of all the pick Its, sauces and capers imported during the year amounted to only $336,632 54, against $397,286 27 in 1874, and $605,883 91 in 1873. At the sworn valuation given for 1875, the average is only about one dollar's worth for each retailer in the United S ates. Where, then, do the pickles seen on every retailer's shelf and bearing, apparently, the labels of foreign manufacturers, oome from? Of spices, about half a pound was used by each and every person, as follows: Cassia or cinnamon, 1,700,909 pounds; cinnamon proper only 7132 ponnds; cloves, 1,282,384 pounds; mace, 67,912 pounds; mustard, 493, '710 pounds: nutmegs, 882,913 pounds; pep per, 8,160,326 pounds, and allspioe, 1,722,014 pounds. Of the staple groceries, 43,220.696 gallons molasses were nsed, or an average of one gal lon to each person, and of sugar, 1,575.889, '967 pounds, or abont 37 pounds per head. The withdrawals of tea from the custom houses are put down at 64,708,079 pounds, valued at $22,644,840, gold, and of cofl -e 317,017,309 pounds, valued at $50 448.851, gold, and of cocoa, all kinds and descriptions, 5,910,706 pounds. The United States House of Bepresenta tives has passed a bill relating to tba execu tion of custom-house bonds, providing that where any bond is reoeived by law te be exe cuted by any firm or partnership for the pay ment of duties upon goods, wares or merchan dise imported into the United States by or for the nse and benefit of snch firm or partner ship, the execution of such bond by any mem ber of suoh firm or partnership shall biDd the other members or partners thereof in like manner and to the same extent as if such -other members had personally executed tbe tame; and any action or suit may be instituted cn inch bond against all the members or part •P the members lartaen kid scented tks The New York Eercdd believes that the country has not altogether gone to the "dezn nition bow-wows." It says: "But we are profoundly convinced, no matter what corres pondents may write, and no matter what mere politicians may do, that this Bepublio will never dishonor its centennial year by electing any man to the presidency for a third term— tnat it will never see in Grant a man who de serves the honors to which even Washington did not asp ire." _ Note, Passengeb9 and Shippers.— The new and fine steamer Bennie Lee leaves to-day at 5 P.
