Upon the subjeot of taxation a num
ber of important decisions havo recently
been made by the Supreme Court of the
United States, One of thorn denies
the right of the State to tax imported
goods in the original packages, on the
ground that the-right of importati?
earricu with it an unrestricted right to
sell the goods. Another deouion demos
the right of tho State to tax national
property or the national credit in the
form ol the public debt, tho grouud U
keu being that tho right to tax implies
tho right to destroy. Another decision
dcclures that for purposes of Stato taxa
tion the port of registry is the domicile
of the vessel. The power of a State to
tax bills of hiding, or any form of com
mercinl paper passing between the States
is denied, hence it is a restriction on
domestic commerce. Another decision
denies tho extra territorial operations of
tho tux laws oT the State, it boing do
dared that a S ate has no right to tax a
corporation ou its shares, bonds or cou
pens which are held outside tho State.

vits, alleging the utter unconstitutional!
ty of these scrip, on the ground that
notwithstanding the confession of avoid
ance endorsed thereon, their issue wan
against the constitution of the State and

receivable in payment of tuxes, and upon
that assurance a lurgc amount of it bus.
we understand, beeil recently bought by
our citizens ut prices varying from
eighty to ninety cents on the dollar. K
the injunction ^i? finally sustained then
all who have bought this scrip will, in
plain english, have been swindled out of
their money. Of course our remarks,
huve no refcieucc to Judge Cooke?he
has but to decide what the law is not
how it should be.
The law levy:rig the tax for thn pre
sent year was passed but a few days ago.
Under the old law, passed several years
ago, but still of lorec. a penalty of 20
per cent attaches o all tuxes which arc
u t paid ou or before the 15th instant ?
just five days from to day. Tho Legis
lature has adjourned and will not re
convene until the 20, so, that before
any law can be passed to help the tax
payers out of iheir difficulty the penalty
will have already accrued.
Wo trnst that this condition of things
was an oversight nn the part of our law
makers. It it was they can soon con
vince us after the 20th, by providing
for the refunding of tho penalty to
those who havo paid up, and by
rebating the penalty and giving a
reasonable extension of time to those iu
Mr. Duncan of this County hus, we
learn declared his intention to introduce
a bill in the Lower Iloust for the pro
tection of the taxpayers in this matter,
and we sincorly hopcu that he will.
The poor, hardworking men of tho
Republican Party arc opening their
eyes gradually and we intend to help
them all we can. Does the Legislature
moan to stand by them or uot ??wo
shall soon know. Are they to havo a
penalty of one ??h added to their high
taxes j without having a fair opportunity
to kuow when the taxes are to be paid
and without 'having hud half an oppor
tunity to raise tho money ?
This is a fair, square fight between the
Legislature and tho poor man?the
ordered man especially. Aud we mean
to stand by tho poor man through the
wholo of it.
Many of our taxpayers are unable to
read?many livo in quiet parts of the
Country nt distance from the Towns-?
aud it takes a long time for tax notices
and suoh matters to reach them.
If the Legislature intoudt to com
pel these peoplo to pay a heavy
additional tax for not knowing what
thoy aro unable to know?in other
word if tho Legislature docs not meau
to give the unoducotcd and poor man as
fail a showing as it gives to the rich and
educated land-owners?why then we
have to say that every man from this
county who votes fin tLat way will do
woll to look for a living olscirhcro than
in politics. Ho will be politically dead

A Happy New Year.
Northrop of tho Uuion-Hcrald is as
clever with his pun as ho is with his
tongue. A ready writer, and fluent
speaker, he has often entertained us to
our heart's content. He has just put
us under obligations, which wc grateful
ly and publicly confess, by writing the
best New Year editorial wo have seen
yet. As such wo reproduce it and with
the more pleasu/o, whithal, because bo
has exactly anticipated what wc wanted
to say. Hear him : "This is tho grc at
visiting day, when everybody is out
visiting, and we shall be out too, com
bining business with pleasure, and
loaded, not with fancy cards, but with
certain antiquated b'.lN, over which
the pusillanimous spider has ku kluxed
the fugacious fly ; for lo ! these many
days. Some of these bills we have sent
to the blacksmish, to have the barna
clcs, knocked off, viel armis, others of
them aro curious specimens of "hope
long deferred," and as such, will bo ap
preciated by the amateur debtor. All
of them will bear theimniom orial greet
ing, "A happy New Year," and an auto
graph which we hope will be worth
something before the noxt timo. While
wc grimly meditate on theso things, the
o'.d year, with whom wo have spent
many a jolly hour, and whoso friondly
baud we grasped iu its freshest niau
hood, is dying away out thcro in the
moonlight, with uo hospital steward
about him, aud no one else to make him
afraid. It is sad to think that th e gen
ial old follow has come to die. Ho, who
brought us iu his generous hand the
warm spring, and laid it, like a blush
flowers, at the door of all of us, rich and
poor alike. He who brought the l ab ?r
ing summer to mature the waving grain
aud make tho bountiful harvest, an 1
whose sweltering brow he cooled at
eventide with the dolioious breathings of
the mountains. He who brought t he
autumn, and poured into her broad lap
flowers and leaves and fruits and pro
ducc of tho earth. Hut he mado an
awful mistake when he brought us tho
winter, with the puuic aud bard times,
its cold cloudy days, its dreary rainy
nights, its floppy slipshod ways, its
want, suffering and crime, and nobo
dy but old Kris Kringle to comfort us
withal. If, therefore, tho old follow
will insist upon dying iu this style, we
will have to go back on him, and turn
to meet the stranger?tho Happy Now
Year. W c hope he brings joy and peace
to every lr arthstonc.?Aiken Tribune.
Polyandry in India.
There is a tribe inhabiting tho Nil
girbi hilts in India called Todas, who
see ms to have presscrved thomselves
unconlaminated freni the rest of the
world for thousands of years. The Pall
Mali Gazette, says thoy appoar to be an
inoffensive hill tribe, devoid of all
decency and morality, who have been
driven from the lowlands by tho con
stant wars. Among their other pecu
liarities is tho practice of polyandry
which prevails among them, and appar
ently works to tho satisfaction of all
concerned. A husband and wife aro
betrothed, dowries being exchanged bc
twectl the husband and the father of th?
bride. After marriage, without any
rites or ceremonies, but with the appro
val of parents, and in full cognizance of
the villngo community of relatives, tho
wife accompanies her husband to his
own house. If the husband hasbrothors
or very near relatives all living together,
thoy may each, if both she aud he con
sent, participate in tho right to be con
sidered her husband also, on making up
a share of the dowry that has been paid.
Younger brothers, as they grow up to
maturity, and other brothers, as they
becomo widowed, uiny each cither take
separate wives or purchase shares in
those already in tho family. Any do
grco of coinplicntioh in perfectly lawful
wedded life may now bo met with?from
the sample of the single man living with
a singlo wife to that of a family of rela
tives married to a group of wives. All
their children are hold to bo brothers
aud sisters. In poor districts several
men have to be contcut with one wife
between them, but? as women bocomo
more numerous a greater proportion of
tuen arc able to procure a wife apiece.

Tho National Lire. Stock Joun a'
explains that tlic word "wnrrented,"
u?ed in the sale of a horse extends only
to soundness, and "warranted so ind"
goes no further. It is a common prac
tice with deilers to use the terms "war
ranted all sound anil rieht." As it is
uncertain what such nn expression
would cover in law, it would, te avoid
possible controversy nud misunderstand
ing, be best to use forms more definite
and oomprohensive; for instance, the
following: "Received of A. B. S2rtf)
for bay mare Kate, warrented only six
yenrs old, sound, free from vice, and
quiet to drive." The warrunty, to be
valid, must of course, be passed ut the
time ol the sale, and constitute part of
the transaction. A warrant after the
sole is void, for it is given without a le
Eove at First Sight.
The Troy (X. Y.) Whig gives nn ac
count of a singular elopement by two

hoes for a walk to a place a mile or two
oast of ('oho -s. When about half way
thoy met a boy, aged fif'teon years.
Miss Farley at once fell in love with
him, snd be with her. Thoy approached
each other, and after a briet couvcrsa
tioiiBhe resolved to accompany him to
his father's farm, in tho tovn of Wcs
tervliet, where thoy would be murricd.
The parents of tho girl became alarmed
at the absence of their daughter, but
afterwards they received a letter from
her, in which sho said, "I will be home
