FOREIGN TRADE OF THE UNITED STATES. The report about to be issued by the bureau of Sta- tistics in the Treasury Department shows that, down to the close of the eighth month of the fiscal year ending the 30th June, 1872, the country was consnming foreign merchandise at the rate of 18.75 per tent, in- crease on the previous year, which year showed an in- creased consumption of 16 per cent. over 1870. The increase of domestic exports, other than gold and silver, produced in the Pacific States and Territories, is over 7 per cent. In regard to the remaining four months of the fiscal year, the increase in the actual consumption of foreign merchandise, judged by the Customs paid at New York, will be very slbàn. The Customs at this port barely come up to last year at the present date but the increase in gross impOltB for these four months will tell upon the vast accumulation of merchandise in bond at the close of the year, "d will also be felt upon the consumption in July and August under the revised tariff. Near the close of the last fiscal year we ventured the estimate that for the ensuing year (the fiscal year now drawing to its close) the Tteasury would receive 216,000,000 dollars in gold for Customs, or an average of 18,000,000 dollars per month, as against 108,000,000 dlilars, or q,n average of 9,000,000 dollars per month, required to \e paid by way of gold interest on the outstanding Funded ♦Gojd) Debtr.exclusive of the demands of the siuk- ing fund. Our estimate will be full realised, the gold interest on the Funded (Gold) Debt is now reduced to 8,ti00,000, dols/per month, and the average of the year is about 9,000,000 dols. per month. In the eoming fiscal year, the average gold interest on the Funded {GoU) Debt in the hands of the pwblie and in the Banking Department of the Treasury, there is good on to hope, will be brought down to about 8,000 000 tiGrs. per mouth, and the Castom-s receipts, with another prosperous trade year, will average 16.000,000 dols. per mouth, or 192,000,000 dols. fcr the year, notwithstand- ing the repeal of the tea and coffee duties and the re- do tiou of one-tenth on other important porticos of the tariff. The reduclion on internal taxes is placed at 22,154,000 (los. (also oji the basis of the receipts ot 1871); so that the whole difftrence in the tariff and tu Ietema is 55,823,250 del-Setv Yorl; Tribune, i
