Virginia tobacco Abroad. --Foreign nations begin to feel the lack of a supply of the Virginia weed. The Official Gazette, of Turin, publishes a report addressed to the King by the Minister of Public Works, stating that the Virginia tobacco leaf has risen to such a price in consequence of the civil war in America that it has become necessary to seek for a substitute. The Minister, therefore, recommends the King to offer a prize of ten thousand Francie for any kind of tobacco, whether home-grown or foreign, which shall possess all the qualities of the Virginia leaf. The report is followed by a royal decree to that effect.
