Although the of the . country lias increased during the mean- j while, there in not hall as much chewing 1 tobacco sold as ten jears ag:>, not u third as much as twenty years past. The only explanation is that coiistum attacks on tobacco elietving are forcini: it out of use. A score cd years ago, when came to ihi ennntry, they always dwelt upi n ties -u! »j-i. and the American habit of ohewing to- ! hacco and "expectorating intn co | - dors," as we cleg intly led it, si-ei.•• d f • arouse their IIO.S! inUMiso disgust.

Ilowevet that be, tobacco chewing lus fallen off to a great extent. There was a time when Congress locked like a convention | of chewors, and when the halls af the j Senate ami House were littered Willi , spittoons innumerable. I'o-duy it in said that tobacco is his ing it hold in the world. It is consuin- ' ed ill as large qunntiiie» as ever, but it is reserved almost altogether fwr smok ing purposes. - 11mcs-Democrat.

It is a very crro- j neous idea that the Ncw Orleans paper has taken hold of. Chewing is not on ■ the decline, but it is most assuredly on J ' the increase.

I RUING TilK WRONG THING. 11 The toleieco crop in Nin th Carolina and Virginia is short, the crop in the Western States is almost •» complete failure. Tobacco will be high for at hoist two years on tliia* account Far- j mcrs will do well to prepare to plant a j tiig crop next yen, and cure it well, for , good tobacco will firing a good price, | when poor tobacco will not bring much. Work in tobaeco pays better than any other work." The above extract is taken from our valued con temporary, the Salisbury Ileraltl, but we .cuuuot believe that it cxpiesses the real sentiment of tho edi tors. Tim sentiment taut prices are likely fo rule high for time conic is very true in one particular, provided the j preparation for the next year's indicate ] another short acreage. Tobacco sells high at present and why ' Simply be cause onr farmers were compelled to j plant a short crop 1 isf spring. As soon tin there was a crrtainty of such shortage ' prices wen up and hive remained so. The coec|Ucnce is, the farmers* who have devoted more time to their other crops, will have a bountiful supply on hand for the coming winter, and iu ad dition will get as much for their I diacco as Iney would had a largo crop been planted. N "v It !s see what our friend' advice would cause were il heeded and carried out. So suou as preparations are made lor a "big crop," so soou will pricesd - o'i'ie—ong bel'uro a single plant has liucn sef. Thus wo gru it would mate rially reduce Ihc farmer's income from j tlie crop already housed. A large crop, if planted—say somt'liing like the IS fi orop--would glut Ihc market next fall, and this hi# crop, haitily planted, poor ly cultivate?, and Still more pnoriy cur ed - natural consequences id a "big j crop"—would bring even less iu real ! money tbac thecr p that is now being I marketed, tlerc we see the farmer ac- I tually loses the extra labor required in ] making a big crop and besides finds | himself with no grain supply on hand I w i'li which to support his family. Hence the roasons are plainly against j tbo planting of a big tobacco crop We ] think lirothers Bucrbaum and Kames ; stuiply made a lapsus tingui. and did not intend to advise their many farmer readers to plant tobacco on a big scale the coming year' Our planters have plainly teen and felt tho foolisbuess of such a course during few years. By all means plant less tebacco and make it better. This year's crop and prices are a standing testimonial in fa vor of such a policy. And the press of tho two States must tahe hold of this matter aud push it, ar tho nigh prices that are now ruling will induce the far mers to fail iuto their old errors again. —>Southern Tobacco Journal.

I have been at a number of ditinor parties where cigarettes were passed round to the ladies when the cigars wore brought to thi gentlemen. I am talking about the best people now, and not Bohemians. If the waiters of Delnionieo's or the Brunswicke would would tell you, you would be surprised at the number of private parties where cigarettes are smoked by ladies.
