From the 10-centsa-pound tax on
tea, the Government expects to realize
about $20,000,000 annually in the
country. New York's share of this,
based on the importations of past
years, will be about $5,000,000. There
will be no tax on tea imported before
July 1, of course, and by that time
importers hope to get in some 20,000,
000 pounds. This, however, will
only be about one-fifth of the amount
usually imported each year. The im
porters and retailers will never stand
the tax themselves. Tea will simply
jump up 10 cents a pound after July

Real estate men in this city, who are
familiar with the revenue bill, are
wondering what the effect of the sec
tion which imposes a tax of 50 cents
per $500 or fraction thereof on deeds
and conveyances where the considera
tion or value exceeds $100 is going to
be. For years it has been the prrotice
to insert nominal considerations, gen
erally $1, in deeds, the object being to
keep secret the amount of money in
volved in a transaction. Hereafter a
nominal consideration mentioned in a
deed will not release the parties inter
ested from stamping the deed at the
rate of 50 cents for every $500 of value
of the property involved over $100,
which will, of course reveal the real
From real estate transactions in this
oity the Government will probably
derive about half a million dollars an
nually. The revenue from tho country
from this item of the bill will prob
ably be between $15,000,000 and $20,
A very large part of the war tax
will come out of Wall Street. The
tax of 2 cents on each $100 of stock
and bond sales is a heavy one, but
the brokers are not kicking. Busi
ness on the Stook Exchange has
averaged 400,000 shares a day lately,
and if it continues at that rate this
daily assessment, will be $8,000. On
the total sales of stock last year the
revenue *"ould have been a million
and a half dollars, and there is no
reason to believe that it will be any
les3 than that after- th? revenue bill
gets in working order. The figures of
the Consolidated Exchange last year
would bring its revenue up to within
$200,000 of the Stock Exohange
assessment. The Produce and Cot
ton Exchanges are let off with a tax of
1 cent for $100. This would bring
the former's contribution to the war
fund to about $150,000, and the lat
ter's to about $50,000 a year.
About the biggest item down-town,
however, will be the tax on bank
checks. In 1871 the revenue from
ibis source was $2,318,455 in the
country. The tax on bank checks in
this city alone will probably run up to
$3,000,000 a year under the war reve
nue law. From the bank capital tax,
the tax on foreign bills of exchange,
the tax on the capital stock and funded
debt of all corporations and from her
taxes in the financial centre, . is
estima ted that $1,000,000 a year will
be realized. Altogether Wall Street
will contribute something like $13,.
000,000 a year to the war fund.
The tax of 1 cent on telephone mes
sages costing more than 15 cents is
put on pay messages, of which there
were 9,000,000 sent in this city last
year. The telegraph companies have
planned to get even on the tax on
messages by compelling senders to put
a one-cent stamp on all messages.
The telephone companies are casting
around for some means of making the
public share the added expense, but
they haven't devised any' scheme
The tax on tobacco has beeu raised
to 12 cents a pound. Some dealers

"Most of the old Confederate sol
diers have been ardently in favor of
the present war from the beginning ;
but even those who, like Gen. Hamp
ton, have believed that difficulties
might have been averted are profound
ly loyal to the Stars and Stripes, and

Here arc two reckless statements.
In the first plaoe, if Georgia may be
taken as a fair representative of South*
orn sentiment, 99 per cent of the Con
federate soldiers believed that the war
could have been honorably averted,
and therefore it should have been
In the second place, since it is on
us, nevertheless, they are solidly in
favor of upholding the flag and fight
ing the war to a quick and successful
finish, not to "exhibit their fidelity,"
but because this is their oountry as
much aB it is anybody's country.
We are sick and tired of this sense
less and apparently endless effort on
the part of certain effusive youog jour
nalists to parade the old Confederate
veteran as an anxious seeker after an
opportunity to "exhibit" his desire to
prove that he is loyal, as though he
felt that he is resting under suspicion.
The Confederate veteran has no
apologies to make and no stains to
wipe out. He does not have to eat
any humble pie. Even the President,
a Republican and Union soldier, re
cognizes this fact, if some of our
Southern newspapers do not. The
appointment of Lee and Wheeler, and
in our own State Hugh Gordon, J. O.
Varnadoe, Henry H. Carl ton, Dr. W.
F. Little, George C. Stewart and oth
er Confederate veterans or sons of vet
erans, fully establishes the position of
Southern men and ex-soldiers of Dixie,
without any profound attempts to
show that they are "eager to exhibit
their fidelity upon the field of battle."
The Ex-Confederates are getting
old?the youngest of them. They are
beyond the service age. Neither duty
because of a pressing need, nor the
sterner demand for a reparation for
any past wrongs, calls them "upon the
field of battle." If some cf the
younger ones can secure positions of
honor compatible with their tastes and
inclinations they will, no doubt, ac
cept and do themselves credit and
their country gallant service. But
the old veterans, bending under the
weight of years, do not have to should
er again the musket and maralt & the
ranks to "the field of battle" in order
to "exhibit" their regret at anything
they have done or to prove that they
are now "profoundly loyal."
The young men can and will do the
fighting. They have already respond -
ed to the call of the President. They
can and will illustrate the South "on
the Seid of battle." It is not neces
sary for the old veterans to enlist.
They do not have to prove a valor that
is already written in imperishable his
tory. They do not have to sacrifice
any more of their blood to atone for
any sins. To intimate that they are
"eager" to do it to "exhibit" their
"loyalty" is to slander them I
No, God bless them, let them stay
at home. Their sons can uphold

this emergency. Let the last days of

I promised I would report him as

She was also seated on a rock, and in

the water she was throwing sticks at
an old blind goose swimming about.
She called out "Howdy" as I came up,

The Sins of the Tongue.
The ..ins of the tongue all point to
the necessity and profit of self-mast
ery. So evident and so important did
this appear to James that it occurs
again and again in his Epistle. "In
many things we all stumble," he writes.
"If any stumble not in word, the same
is a perfect man, able to bridle the
whole body also." If this confession
of failure and magnifying of the office
of the tongue be then exaggerated, let
any one sit down quietly and think of
the sins and cruelties of human speech.

promises which it has cost us so much

I was in the army at the time of the
civil war.- But my purpose in sleep
ing in a hammock was not to guard
against malaria or dampness or any
thing of that sort, because we were at
that time in a settled camp that was
tolerably salubrious, and where we
had beds raised off the ground, made
of barrel staves, cracker box covers,
and one thing and another; my ham

where wo were then, and we, that is
the folks iu our tent, had set up a
couple of tall, stout posts about six
feet apart alongside of our tent and
strung a line between them to hang

posts for hammock posts. I took
down the clothes line and tied a piece
of good, stout cord around each end

on each, and then I made these ropes

They were bad enough in the tent,

A F8W Worfls of Warning.
Persons who maybe exposed to yel
low fever and others living in districts
liable to be infected by it will find that
timely and intelligent preparation is
the best means of keeping this dread
ful malady out of the family. Sani
tary regulations in the household arc
of the first importance. Clean up all
refuse matter, decaying vegetation or
cesspools. Drain off ponds, pools and
siuks. Burn vegetable offal from the
kitchen. Eat nothing but light, whole
some and easily digested food, avoid
ing green or over ripe fruits and vege
tables. Lastly, be sure that the blood,
stomach and bowels of every member
of the family is in healthy condition.
Irregularities in the system, such as
indigestion, constipation, torpid liver,
invite disease to enter the body, and
in the case of yellow fever, renders
its progress more virulent and deadly.
This condition can he speedily remov

regularity in the bowels re-established
