REPORT OF THE COMMISSIONER OF
The Report ol the Comm'ssioner of Internal
Revenue is an interesting and important document.
The Commissioner speaks iu favorable
terms of the patience of the people under
the burdens of taxation, and shows from eta
ubmcb mat tne aggregaie receipts nave lor tne
past fiscal year been largely above thoee of the
previous year. The following statement exhibits
the amount of receipt* from internal
revenue for the past three years:?Receipts
for 1HJ3 (ten months). 84L,0U3,1W; 1^64, Sllfi,.
b50,fi72; 1*65, 8211.120,.WP. The Commissioner
says the actual cost of assessing and collecting
the internal revenue will amount to two and
three-quarters per cent, of the receipts.
The actual annual cost for the collection of
the customs amounts to three and one-half per
cent, of the receipts, which is much below the
cost of collecting the customs in Great Britain.
Among the articles from which the internal
revenue of the United States is derived it may
be interesting to enumerate the following;?
Bank dividends, 83,967,200; railroad dividends
and interest on bonds, 53,258,4(4; insurance
companies. 81.726,1(30; salaries of persons employed
by the Government, 82,*J6,333; revenue
stamps, 81 l,l(i'2,3iri?being more than double
that of the previous year; licenses, 512,595,691;
incomes, *20,667.340, or about six millions more
I than in lw?>4.
Of the amount collected frem incomes in 1HV3,
8279,333 were returned at five per cent, upon
income* above ten thousand dollars 8174,770 at
three per cent, cpon incomes of less than ten
thousand dollars, and ?3,G37 upon incomes from
l'nittd States securities. Of that collected in

u j?\'?nv? v? uic irpwi to explaining
vrby the receipts from distilled spirit#, witu
a tax of two dollars per gallon, are so much
lets than they were when the tax was but sixty
cents per gallon.
The reoeipts for the current fiscal year are
estimated to reach SttT^OUUXiO, or about sixty
millions more than last year. The Commissioner
suggests an alteration in the mode of
appointing assistant assessors, and urges an
increase in their compensation, as well as in
that of the clerks employed in the Internal
Revenue Bureau. An additional allowance
tor^iftlce rent is also rec?mmended. The Commissioner
suggests several amendments in relation
to stamp duties, the duties of the Tax
Commissioners, and other changes in the law,
whereby doubtful points can be definitely

opened a co-operative store in that city. The
Gazette says: "Besides the articles usually
termed groceries, the co-operative store sells
butcher's meat, sausages, poultry, &.c., cedar
ware, hollow ware, crockery and glass ware,
and a great number of other articles, all at very
moderate prices. The rule ia to purchase good
and pure articles, and sell them at a moderate
profit. They have but one price for each article,
and that is paid by stockholders as well as
others. In other words, a person who is not a
stockholder can buy just as cheaply as a per.
son who is. The business is conducted precisely
as in any other well regulated store, although
the co-operative store intends to charge
smaller profits than those generally exacted by
dealers The stockholders have no advantage
in their purchases, but they share the profits
among them on settlement."

Uro1 her hood in New York are having
wnn1 internal troubles. On tbe t?th a card app?a
red in ilie New York papers, sicned by ten

tbe proposed issue of Fenian bonds
as unauthorized, and the bonds invalid, alleging
at a reason that the ap nt whose name appears

submitted by the President (O'Mahoney) for
confirmation. In reply to ibis, O Mabwy
publishes a card characterizing that of tb?
Senate as "the self-written and self-published
condemnation of ten long-timed malcontent*,
who have met in this city without legal authori*yfc"
and says that "the Brotherhood, by a
congress to he held in January next, will show
its capacity to overcome domestic faction instigated
by corrupt motives or by British goid, ,
as it has demonstrated already its power to resj*ct
law and further human freedom."'
The trouble antes in connection with the
new bond* of the Irish Republic. The Philadelphia
Convention established a regulation
requiring that such bonds should bear tb?
name of an agent nominated by President
O'Mahoney and confirmed by the Senate. But
Colonel O'Mahoney, so tbe "malcontents"
allege, nominated himself lor agent, unanimously
confirmed the appointment, and forth- .
with proceeded to issue the bonds and receive
therefore the greenbacks ot Patrick and
Bridget, whereupon, ten of the Senators publish
a card warninc bondholders that the scrip
id question is valueless. Tbe latest development
is in tbe shape of the follow in* notioe,
posted on tbe doors of the Fenian Headquarters,
in Union square:
"It being deemed advisable to keep dishonest
