The Commissioners of the Inland Revenue, in a report issued on Monday, express some surprise at the great increase of the consumption of spirits in Ireland as compared with the quantities consumed in England and Scotland. The proportionate increase in England is 0*544 per cent. in Scotland, 3'44 per cent. and in Ireland, 8'68 per cent. The export of spirits from England has suddenly been diminished by nearly 2,000,000 of gallons. The distillers attribute the fact to the very low prices of Prussian spirits made from potatoes and roots, and which," says the commis- sionerf, "though extremely coarse, and in every respect inferior to the productions of this country, are taken in large quantities for fortifying wines, and for naxkig with such ■pint* and liqueurs aa hare sufficient flavour to disguise Are unpleasant taste of the" adulterating material. They are much u*ed in this country for fortifying wines in bond." The commis- sioners <g>me to the conclusion that in England there are consumed two bushels of malt per head, and about half a gallon of spirits in Scotland, seven-tenths of a bushel of malt per head, and more than a gallon and a half of spirits; and in Ireland, four-tenths of a bushel of malt, and eight-tenths of a gallon of spirits.
