\ .inil; Taxes?
| From !'. I'hi\id<iphiii Press.]
There i.s n doscriptitn of taxation in England
which, in a manner, is molly unknown hon?. We j
are as vain, us n peuple, |t< ?my upon the in?:?' of
tin- earth, but their is ii^ i?iliviilual vanity from
which wo in nearly fine. Tito gentleman who
was offered a pinch ?if snliiV. ?mil responded, in ?i
dignified manner, thai li?; hid no small -ficen, mimt
have liml American blood "n bin veins. Wo, an a
people, imvc no small viiui?-s, tluum!? it may bo
alleged Hint wo deal in the article, t-rnolcaak*. ?
As every one knows, nlinit tme-tbird of Hi?*1
whole British rovonne in pbtaincd by Uutation
iovicd through tbo custom boose. That third
amounts, in ?.ach roar, to almut 893,000,000, ami i?
roalised from u Vow principal imports, chiefly <>r
migar, tea, tobacco, win??, spirila, coffee and corn.
The internal roTOnuo ariaon from stamps, excise,
hind and assessed taxes, pbatage and the property
tax.
They aro not so uttoriyjmean a?rons the water as
to tax lucifer matelios, pins and needle?, thread and
cotton, and mich necessary tritios in ordinary use;
butthuyiax superfluities? and particularly auch
a?, adimniutor tu the poriMpal vanity of those who
enjoy them. For instance, any one scaling a lut
ter with hin crcat ?ir full armorial bearings, must
pay $4 a year, and $11 if ho ia chargeable with the?
duty of asnease?! taxes for nny carriage. Where
thcro ia a carriage there must tic a servant to look
after it?perhaps another to mind tho horse <?r
horses. Now, aa people can generally dispense
with carriages anil tliinT-ics, it is right that each
should pay for liis particular vanity; therefore the
duty is $5*u your upon evory male servant over 18
years old, and huff that for malo servants under
that age, or lor undcr-gardonors, or as undor
gamc keepers. If a servant be of tho ol?l school
and wear powder on his head, there is an extra tax
of $5 each man. This, yielded $5000 last year.
The duty upon carriages varies, according to
size and grandeur, from $J, when drawn byapony
not exceeding thirteen hunda in height) to a"full
grown carriage, drawn by two or more horses. If
a person, wishing to play tho lauded gentleman
and sportsman, desires to shoot grouse, partrid
ges, or pheasants, at the appointed season.?, lie
must not pull a trigger until lie has lirst ''stepped
up to the captain's olliee," and taken out a game
license. Tho price of this is SIS a year, and if lie
has a keeper, S10 extra must be paid for him.
{"hooting is not much good without a setter or re
triever, and the annual tax upon each dog used in
the pursuit of gamo is $_.. If a man keeps grey
hounds, the tax is $-15; and if he keeps a pack ?if
hounds he may have to pty $197. Shooting und
hunting are luxuries (us well a? vanities, hi very
many cases), and tlmse who indulge in them must
"nay for their whistle," as sngaciousFranklin siiid.
There cannot he bunting without horses, and tin
?lealers in tliem must take out an annual lleuneo,
costing $127 in London, and half ti:at amount in
the country.
Tho ani:iia.la themselves, a?> often kept for show
ami from mora ostentation, ?lo not pass Bcofc-fren.
If a man keeps a fast horse, the public revenue
benefits by his pride <?r vanity, according to the
creature'., rank m equine aristocracy. For a pony,
11.50 per annum; for the same, if kept for riding,
or drawing a carriage chargeable with duty. $2.50;
for a horse over thirteen bands high, $'2.r>0; for a
horse of the same height, kept for ruling or car
riage use. $5.50; anil for every horse kept or used
for racing, $20.
A parliamentary return of ?he proceeds of the
British financial year ending March, lsii.., shows
how these various subjects of taxation contribute
to the revenue. It is not worth while to go into I
details, hut We may say that, in tho.ycura lMfri-'t??.
the sum ?if $837,900 ivas derived from armorial
hearings; $l,O5(J,220 from servants; $1,051.515 from
dogs, and 1301,830 from the duty on gold ami sil
ver plate. We add, for the information of the cu
rious in such matters, that, within the same finan
cial year the national revenue of England was
benefited by tho tax on uninhabited lioiisea to the
extent of $4,..H4,(S01; by probates on wills, admin
istrations, legacies and successions (on which tin re
is no local impost whatever), $17,2.5,770; by the
stamp on bills of exchange, $;.,84C,?i45; ami by
the penny stamp on receipts, drafts, Ac, $2,501,*
250.
However, theso last items arc digression al.
What we wanted to show was, that English taxa
tion is baaed upon two simple principles, namely:
to lean heaviest upon luxuries, superfluities and
vanities, and, as far as practicable, mit to lean at
all upon mere necessaries. Tho last do not yield
much, but their collection is cumbrous as well as
costly, and they irritate the minds of the masses,
who cliiefly have to pay tbo taxos upon them. The
rich are tbo proper objects for taxation, and tbo
less wealthy classes ought to be dealt lightly with.
A clerk or small tradesman will be taxed if l?e wear
a watch to show him how timo passes; but a mil
lionaire expends large sums on paintings, statues,
bronzes, rieb carvings, stained glass, marqueterie,
bijouterie and articles of vertu, and is taxed very
lightly indeed, comparison being fairly made, for
the gratification of his taste- which may bo real,
but ia just as likely to be only ostentatious.
When our system of internai taxation is remod
elled (it is likely to be permnnont, and therefore
ought to be just), let us hopo that rich men and
poor men will not bo taxed alike. The necessaries
of life should be free of taxation, as far as prac
tical; tho superfluities, on tbo other hand, and,
above all, the can ?ties, should bo dealt strongly
with. Of this there cannot bo any doubt, except
in tho minds of tho wealthy, who ought to be
Bqueczed for the benefit of the l.opublic and for
the reliof of their poorer and humbler and strug
gling fellow-citizens.
