were, respectively, as iww.
S250.7SS.1S4 in 1SS1, 227,330,
137 in 1SSH, and 5205,060,070 in
1S70. The customs receipts at
thth port for the seven moots end
ing January 31 increased from
,227,700 in 1S79 to 871,231.758
in 1SS0, and S0,1G0,101 in 1S81.
These figures speak so eloquently
that any comment is superfluous.
The foreign trade of New York
alone has reached in seven months
a total amount of more than $573,
000,000, which is larger than the
total foreign trade of the United
States in 18G5. It must be borne
in mind that, during the last ten
years, this city has also grown to
be the largeat manufacturing
centre in the country, the value of
the annual products of her fac
tories being now more than $400,-
Upon this they left him and you 1 000,000. As regards her trade
see the result.
Much interest will be felt bv
the tobacco grower of this country
in the .progress of the scheme de
vised by Prince Jjismarck for the
establishment of a tobacco mo
nopoly in German'. Should he
succeed in carrying'out his project
in spite of the vigorous opposition
which he must encounter, it is
claimed by some that the trade of
this country would be injured.
The argument advanced in sup
port of this opinion is that Ger-
mauv takes more of our leaf
with the interior, we must await
the census returns to give correct
Jijruros, but we may conceive an
idea of its extent from the fact
that she occupies, as distribu
ter of domestic wealth, a po
sition scarcely less command
ing than as an agent of inter
national exchange. Uefore leaving
this subject, we must observe that
the severe winter has greatly af
fected the movement of goods.
Considerable quantities of grain
were prevented from reaching this
port by early closing of navigation,
Mother Shipton's predictions and
Professor Smyth's Iwok entitled
"The great Pyramid," all pointing
to this year as the termination of
terrestrial life, which he says seri
ously frighten children and credu
lous adults. The Tribune sooths
the lady as follews: "Astronomers
if tlie higliest reputation have pro
noun cod tlie predictions based up
on planetary conjunctions as ar
rant moonshine. Professor Smyth's
book contains no prediction that is
not based on approximations so
elastic as to be little more than
systematic guess work. The pyra
mid weight and measure can be
made to prove anything which an
imaginative calculator wishes. For
instance, one of the latest treatises,
after interpreting a verse from the
Old Testament as distinctly fore
shadowing the I 'nitcd States, with
the national flag accurately symbol
ized, makes one of the pyramid
measures tlie base of the 'dollar of
our daddies Our correspondent
probably roads her New Testament,
and can find in the gospels the
distinct declaratien: Of that day
and that hour knoweth no
man; no, not the angels which
are in heaven, and can surely
satisfy herself and her children
that Mother Shipton's prophetic
intuitions are as the aerial flights
of the old woman in the nursery
rhyme wla sweeps the cobwebs
from the skies.' The Tribune
The last issue of the London
Graphic contains a 'picture of a
man in Ireland sltowing hi wife
'now to slaiot with a revolver. It
is a pity some one would not show
Americans hmv to work that uni
versal instrument in this country.
A man in Chicago shot a burglar
and took oft' two of his own fingers.
A Philadelphia man fired at a mad
dog and hit an inoffensive police
man sleeping in a doorwav. A
man in Galveston, Texas, tried to
shoot a runaway liorse, but hit a
bricklayer working on the second
story. A Baltimore man shot at a
cat and shattered a 150 plate
"lass window. A New York man
sliot at a woman three time, hit I
her once, took a spectator in the
leg next time, split a kerosene
lamp at the third shot, setting fire
to the building and giving three
fire engines two hours' work.
Won't some one teach the vounsr
idea how to shoot?
The Shoe and Leather Reporter
says: "Of course, as Christians we
ought all to hope that it is not
true that the statistics of the
Dominion fisheries were deliber
ately and systematically falsified
for the purpose of swindling the
people of this country in the
award, but it would be expecting
too much of human nature to ask
us not to chuckle inwardly with
the hope that it is true. From
time out of mind our British
cousins have amused themselves
with the idea that a certain callous
and cynical dishonesty which prides
itself in, over-reaching honest peo
ple in nuking bargains was a trait

proportions as with German v for!
the. simple reason that the fragrant
weed among the peasantry is not
so much in favor in the first as in
the last country, and that the
French soil is better adapted to
the growth of the inferior grades
of leaf tobacco. 13oth in propor
tion to its amount, it is certainly
more profitable. However that
may be, it seems certain now that
Prince Bismarck will carry his
point, the necessity of raising taxes
by' indirect methods overcoming
any obstacles that a powerful in
dustry, supported by large num
lers of the German people, may
ndeavor to interpose.
i-STfeoine say that it is no use for them
toadvertise, that iliey have been in the
.place in business all their lives, and
everybody Knows theui. Such people
.seem to forget totakt in consideration
that our country is increasing in popu
lation nearly 40 per cent, every ten j'ears.
and no matter how old the place may be,
there arc constant changes taking place:
some move to other parts,and -strangers
fill their places. In this ago of the
world, unless the. name of a business
afinn is kept constantly before the public,
some new firm may start up, and. by
lilwral advertising, in a very short time
take the place of the older ones, and the
latter rust out, as it were, and be forgot
ten. No man ever lost money by judi
specie, the total imports at this
j)ort were still nearly five millions
less than in January of last year.
What has become of the prediction
that the balance of trade would
soon turn airainst us? The flow
of precious metals from Europe to
America is as great as ever, and
since our mines are constantly pro
ducing, there will soon be in this
country a plethora of money which
will afford the alarmists an oppor
tunity to give vent to their elo
quence in a direction somewhat
contrary to the usual one. The
singular phenomenon should, how
ever, be noted, that the reserves of
our baYiks do not reflect the extent
of this increase in our metallic
treasure. Most of it apparently
finds. its way into the pookets and
stockings of old women in the
'western and southern states, and a
few years will find our people as
well provided with a circulating
medium out of circulation as the
