Georgetown, Del., Feb. 19. --  The new government bonded warehouse for the storage of brandy, etc., located here, was opened the early part of this week and already there are a number of barrels of peach brandy in it for storage. Ira H. Melvin of Laurel has bonded fifteen barrels of peach brandy and L. A. Levy twenty-five barrels. The new warehouse is complete in its furnishings and is well adapted for its purpose. It has a capacity of many hundreds of barrels. Applications have been received from numerous other distillers and it is supposed that by the middle of March the warehouse will be filled.
