boilery at Berchtesgaden; a boilery and refinery at Reichenhall; and boileries at Traunstein and Rosenheim ; 2 in Unterpanken, (Wurzburg district,) Kissingen and Orb; and 1 in the Pfalz, at Durkheim; the last three having boiling apparatus and refineries.
According to an average of several years the annual product of salt from these sources is 920,980 zoll-centner, of which over 800,000 zoll-centner are brought to market as kitchen or common salt.
The remainder, being the waste or coarse products of these establishments, is sold for agricultural purposes, and is used as manure and for the feeding of cattle. Tobacco culture in Bavaria reached its height in 1857, when it occupied 20,179 tagwerks (or Bavarian acres,) and produced 152,9754 Bavarian hundred weight. From this time declining prices and a diminished foreign demand have reduced the breadth of land planted at an average annual rate of 2,500 tagwerks. In 1861 only 9,096 tagwerks were planted, the product being 56,2663 Bavarian cwt. The increasing inquiry and advancing prices occasioned by this diminished product caused a slight increase in 1862, when 10,067 tagwerks were planted, producing 83,538 Bavarian cwt. This was an average product of 8.03 Bavarian cwt. to the tagwerk, the most fruitful year since 1856.
This culture is found mostly in the Pfalz and Mittelfranken (the Nuëmberg district,) 60 per cent. of the land devoted to it being in the Pfalz, and 30 per cent. in Mittelfranken. The average prices per Bavarian cwt. for the best and poorest tobacco of the crop of 1862 were :
The entire crop produced f. 1,198,604, being f. 560,000 more than the crop of 1861. The following table will present a general view of the tobacco culture in Bavaria, and its product for the last seven years :
The amount of land devoted to tobacco in the Zollverein in 1861 was 55,885 Prussian morgen, (1 Prussian morgen = 0.74 Bavarian tagwerks,) yielding 354,335 zoll-centner of cured leaves.
The latest general report of the agricultural statistics of Bavaria was published in 1857; but even these were made up in 1854 from data of 1853. In other words, the following agricultural statistics are ten ycars old, but are the latest of the kind obtainable, or even extant !
