WASHINOTON, June 20.-The Secre.
tarv of the Treasury, in a communica
tior' to the Iolse, expresses an opinion,
based upon his observation of the law of
18f1, that an additional enactment. Ru.
thorizing resumption by the Southern
States respectively, of the remainder of
the direct tax due from each, would, in
vi(w of the present impoverished con
dition of their people, prevent much
liardship in individual cases, and save
from confiscation the property of many
'persons again st whom the Government
has no grounds of complaint, while no
public interest would be injuriously ef.
fected by the change. He states, that
should this policy be adopted, the col.
lection of taxes under the present sys.
tem, might and ought to be discontinu.
ed, until an opportunity for assumption
Whether the amount realized from
resales of property bid in for the Govern
inent, should or should not be allowed to
the States respectively, in computing
the taxes still due, is a question well do
serving of consideration, which is sub
initted without comment. -
