Blakeman, Taylor 3 Cy NEW YORK ' OUR WASHINGTON LETTER. SOME INTERESTING FACTS AND FIGURES FROM OUR CONSULAR REPORTS. Republicans in CaucusPostal Notes- Route ChangesPersonal ItemsThe Distillers' Men Looking After Their Interests, But in the Dark as to the Result of the Proposed Tax Measures, &c. Washington, April 16. The current number of the consular reports, ex tracts from former numbers which have been made in this correspondence, is an unusually interesting document. At this time when the attention of American commerce is directed South ward to the almost unknown regions, commercially speaking, of South Amer ica, the reports of consuls in that part of the world possess much interest. Consul Baker, stationed at Buenos Ayres, the capital of the Argentine Republic, contributes to this number an interesting article in which he treats of European vs. American trade meth ods in that Republic. The foreign com merce of the Argentine Republic he says now amounts to about $100,000,000 per annum, the imports being $44,000, 000 and the exports $56,000,000. Of this amount the countries of Europe have control of about $80,000,000, the imports from that continent amounting to $34,' 000,000 and the exports thither reaehing $46,000,000 annually. The amount of trade with the United States is now about $8,000,000 annually, sayN$5,000,000 for exports to and $3,000,000 for imports from that country, or only about 8 per cent, of the entire trade. He attributes the commanding posi tion which Europe enjoys as a competi tor for the trade of the Argentine Re public to three causes, viz: regular steam communication with Europe whereby the receipts of merchandise can be computed to a day ; second, the fact that mercantile houses there have branches in the business centres of the old world, and third, that the English, Italian and other European nations have branch banks there which greatly facilitate exchange and contribute largely to their success in rapid trans portation. The value of these banking institutions to their respective coun tries Mr. Baker thinks can hardly be overestimated in a commercial point of view. An American bank or banks would, he believes, not only be paying institutions but would do much to re vive or establish trade with the United States. As it now is payments to Americans are made out on London or Paris banks. Leaving the subject of banksConsul Baker comes to treat of the interior commerce of the country and sheds such light upon the subject as must cause surprise to those who have formed the impression that that far-away coun try is but semi-civilized. The lumber ing builock carts have given way to steamships and railways. Of the form er some of the vessels are as magniQ cent in their appointments as are the palaces that ply upon the Mississippi. These steamers penetrate the inland by means of the Uraguay and Parara riv ers, and make trips even to Matto Groso. Brazil. During 1SS0 the foreign and domestic commerce of the Republic amounted to 4,198,030 tons, over one half being employed in the interior navigation of the country. Of the ton age so employed 84 3 per cent, was un der the Argentine Hag; 7.4 percent, un der the Euglish flag; 1.7 per cent, under the Paraguayan flag; 1.4 per cent, un der the Uraguayan flag; 1 per cent, un der the Italian flag, and 4.2 per cent, under the flags of other nations. England and Italy here figure in the commerce of a sister republic, but the Stars and Stripes float not over a single vessel. Nine railroads, aggregating 1,500 miles m extent and mostly center ing at Buenos Ayres, also form no in considerable part of the means em ployed in the transportation of the in land commerce of the country. These roads are rapidly extending in all di rections under the fostering care of the national government. Vice Consul Henrique, at Rio Ilacha, United States of Colombia, reports that commerce with the United States is on the increase. Owing to the complete want of the few agricultural products of the coun try, several American schooners pro ceeding from New York, and loaded with provisions, have visited this port. American provisions have been intro duced via Curacoa. The custom house returns show the value of imports for the fiscal year to amount to $324,364, of which there were American goods imported to the amount of $106,000. The value of exports for the same time was $502,851, and invoices have been certified in this consulate for the sum of $212,105.58 destined to New York. To this sum should be added $18,000 worth of products exported via Curacoa to the same port in the United At Para, Brazil, Consul Backu3 re marks that the statistics are not as re liable as he would like. The duties received on imports in 1879 were $1,750,114.53. The duties re ceived on the imports in 1880 were $1,499,873.08. By comparing the duties received on imports during the year 1879 and the duties received in 1880, it is seen there i3 a balance in favor of 1879 of $250,240.85. The duties on exports in 1879 were $876,617.60; the duties on exports in 1880 were $828,553.18, showing a balance in favor of 1879 of $48,064.42. The total tonnage of American ves sels entering this port during the year 1879 was 95,969; during 1880 was 92,642, showing a decrease of 3,327 tons. Business for the last year has been considered very good among all classes, produce of all kinds being in abund ance, and bringing fair prices. Trade between the United States and this port of Brazel is undoubtedly on the increase, but is to a great extent done through the medium of English, French, Portuguese and German houses. The consul cannot understand why the United States should not be better represented among business houses in this city. , , t In 188Q there was bought $6,847, 302.70 worth of produce in this pro vince. There was sold a large amount of manufactured goods, an immense amount of flour, kerosene, a very small part of which was imported by Ameri- CaAfter referring to the fact that there is a much greater demand for Ameri can than English goods at Chin-Kiang, Asia, Consul Smithers shows up some of the means employed by our English cousins to drive American manufac tures out of the market. He says : "The increased demand for American cottons has undoubtedly incited unprin cipled dealers to introduce a low class of English goods marked as American. Circulars have been received at this port during the present year offering to supply any brand of American goods, with their distinguishing trade-marks, the shipments to be made at Mancnes tcr "I have been informed that a con CHARLOTTE, N. C, WEDNESDAY APRIL 19, 1882. signment of Erftrlish drills, with Ameri can marks, recently reached this port from Shanghai, and was forwarded to the inferior under transit pass.' Should this practice be continued, it cannot but be detrimental to American trade, for the ignorant consumer will be in many instances decived in the Durchase of a different kind of goods to that ? t- v ! a jj nr m mi wmcn ne lnienuea. ine suojecc win be brought to the notice of the Com missioner of Customs, with the view of having, if possible, all goods bearing fraudulent marks returned to the coun try of their production." In view of the veto of the Chinese bill, will this predeliction of American goods continue ? Consul-General Merritt, of London, England, in a highly important report on British exports to the United States, goes into many interesting detals. For the fiscal year ended September, 1881, it is seen that the United Kingdom ex ported into the United States $158,786, 061.90 worth of products, as follows: District.

The condition of the mechanic as com pared with his" fellows in "bonnie" Scotland is likely to inspire a fresh love for. bis native or adopted country. "Lives there a man with soul so dead Who ne'er to himself hath said, This Is my own, my native land?" The Republicans had a caucus Friday night of three and a half hours dura tion. It was wondered at the time what kept them engaged so long but it is. known now. It will be remembered that several weeks ago they threatened to change the rules of the House so they would deprive the minority of the few rights they now possess. A rule to that effect was reported, but as the Democrats gave notice thatthey would filibuster until the end of the session, and as the Republicans had not the numerical strength to force it down their throats they desisted. The rule in question they intend to change is one that places bills on the calendar and brings them to the attention of the House in the order they stand. The Republicans want the rule so etraaged that the majority can pick out any bill they desire, thus passing over bills that are evidently deserving- and;jusfr :In this way, with a majority of th& House, they can prevent any bill frorii being taken off the calendar. It was there fore decided in caucus, that as soon as they put out the Democrats now-holding seats which are contested, . they would force this rule down the throats of the minority. The men to, be put out include Dibble, of South Carolina ; Chalmers, of Mississippi; Wheeler, of Alabama and others. When the mat ter comes up it is expected a fight equal to the one over the force bill in 1S74 will ensue. POSTAL NOTES. A new office has been - established at Adamsville, Marlborough county, S.

PERSONAL NOTES. Gen. Cox made his maiden speech on the tariff. It was a well-considered ar gument from the standpoint of free trade or a tax for revenue only. Dur ing its delivery he commanded the at tention of the House and at its conclu sion received the congratulations of his colleagues. While not an orator, Mr. Cox has a pleasing, insinuating delivery and is quite effective. Mr. Cooper, who took a rundown home, has returned to light again&t a forlorn hope. W. P. Cannaday, of Wilmington, is still here. Congressmen Vance, Armfield, Lath am and Shackelford, were before the committee on commerce Friday, in be half of improving the -rivers and har bors of North Carolina. Dropping in at the Ebbitt House, a popular resort of statesmen and others, 'o day, I found some of the others. '1 nere were Dr. Rush, of Chicago, secre i ry of the distillers national associa tion ; Mr. C. H. Kellogg, a heavy Cin cinnati distiller; Charley Mills, a Ken tucky distiller, who lives at Cincinnati ; andMr.Wm. Henry Smith, an Indiana distiller, with headquarters also at the Queen City. Near by sat Collector Wilson, of the Louisville district, whose head the executive is now trying to re move, having appointed Col. Buckner in his stead. Seeing so much whiskey talent congregated in such locality led me to suspect that some movement must be on foot for the good or other wise of the order, and I immediately made inquiry. Inquiring of Mr. Kel logg I was referred to Dr. Rush, who Mr. Kellogg assured me to be always full of information, so much so that you have but to question hint and the facts are forthcoming, so I asked him "What the formidable gathering meant, ana received lor reply the information that the bill extending the bonded pe riod on distilled spirits was likely to "come up in the Senate soon, and that the distillers naturally feeling anxious about it had thought it proper to be on 1 md to see that it is fairly treated. "Do you anticipate any opposition to i then, doctor?" "You can't tell about those things. Yes, I presume it may meet with some opposition. It did in the Hoose,-you know ; Mr. White of Kentucky opposed it." "You don't think the opposition likely to be so great as to endanger its pass age?" "Well, I hope not; in fact I may say I presume not. I think the bill will pass and will become a law." "Do you look for any more legislation on the subject this season, doctor?" "Can't say, as to that. It's not impos sible, however. Yet I don't know that there will be." "You don't anticipate any reduction iu the tax do you?" "Well, we hardly expect any. Yet it is not improbable the question may be agitated and possibly may yet come to a voting point in some vfay. There are many Republicans not pleased withjhe caucus dictation in the matter." "Yes," chimed in Mr. Mills, of Cincin nati, "for a handful of Republicans, less than a hundred of them, to have gotten together in caucus and by an agree ment of that sort controlled and con tinue to control the action of the party, and the action of the country on so im portant a subject don't seem to have been exactly the thing. Then we were asking nothing unreasonable and noth ing that would have been anything but good to the community. Everything we have asked and obtained thus far has resulted in great increase of the volume of this manufacturing inter est," "Yes?" "Yes, indeed. For instance the man ufacture of whisky has grown from less than a million gallons per annum eight years ago to sixteen million gal lons per year, and is still increasing. By this we proposed a plan by which the whiskey manufactured may be held un til it ripens and comes of good quality by the natural process, instead of being "aged" artificially as it must be now. Whiskey really ought to be five or six years old before it is used for drink ing purples, while at present most of What becomes of the sixteen million gallons er year made, Mr. Mills? Is the country consuming so much more whisky than it used to ?" "A great deal is being held for this very improvement by age, of which I am speaking. There are. between fatty and sixty million gallons of whisky held in bonded warehouses now, and this amount Will ddubtless increase largely ir the bill extending the bonded period is passed." y "Yes?" "Yes. Then beside this quantity now being held a large amount has been shipped abroad during the past four years. Several millions of bushels of corn are annually iurnisnea a market abroad in this form, and the money has come back here for distribution among the corn growers of the country." Turning from the abstract question of whisky manufacture to the more re alistic one of office-holding, I asked Col. Wilson, of Louisville, if he was going to be able to hold on to his collector ship and defeat Buckner's nomination. "Dont know,- he answered with a foughFmriot gbmgto give it up with out a fight. Tell you better a little la ter." i If .You jure Rained in health from any cause, especially from the use of any of the thousana nostrums that promise so laelyKV long fictitious testimonials, have no fear.
