Washington News.
. WASHINGTON, January. 4.-The message veto'elng :
the 'District. Suffrage Bill, will' be .Johnson's most
elaborate State paper.
Commissioner Wells, in Iiis report on tho reve?
nue, recommends a $1 per gallon tax ou liquor.
He opposes a reduction in tho cotton tax. He
says that the average advance in the price of labor .
has been 60 per cent.; in commodities 90 per cont,,
the effect of which advance is a decrease in pro
duction and consumption, thereby checking de?
velopment. The facts he sets forth about
shipping, machinery and the book trade are dis?
couraging. Tho tonnage in tho foreign trade is
$1,500,000, against $2,500.000 in 1860. Instead of
building ships for other nations, the people of
Nova Scotia and New Brunswick build Tor us. The
publishers have books printed, bound, pay 20 per
cent, tariff, and undersell home work. Machinery
of nearly all kinds is profitably imported.
The immense profits of manufacturing, during
the war, is attributed to the enormous advance in
the raw material. Its present depressed condition
is owing to the scarcity of 6killoa labor, an irre?
deemable currency, n ?el a heavy burdon of taxa?
tion. -He suggests, as remedies, increased immi
graaon and a speedy return to specio paymont. A
j?ductioli of thc tax on sales and manufacturing,
industry to three per cent, is recommended, and a
corresponding reduction on analogous branches of
Industry. Ho advocates the entire removal of the
tax on bar plates, sheet iron, and artioles entering
into their production; also tm sulphuric acid and
salt. A reduction to half the present rates on re?
fined sugar; an abatement on the raw material, and
the admission froe of certain tropical products.
. The report says that legislation for special inte?
rest has been our bano. He argues against a
higher tariff of duties, but suggests as a measure
of temporary expediency some increase on certain
articles ; but says that Hie new Tariff Bill intro?
duced into tho House is excessive. He urges that
there be no change in the duties cn tea, coffee and
?pices, and an <ad-valorem duty on wines of 50
cents.per gallon.- No change in jsegars. A mode?
rate- reduction on the coarser staple goods. The
substitution of sp?cifie for tho ad valorem duties.
Opposes the change on printing and writing pa?
per : suggests a large increaso oh cured meats and
malt ; recommends a large increaso of the free
list, embracing articles that enter into manu?
facturing.

To-dav's Star has the following communication
received at the Freedmen's Bureau from an officer
at Raleigh, N. C., calling tho attention of the Bu?
reau to the whipping of negroes by the civil au
- tborities ostensibly las a punishment tor petty
crime, but in fact for the purpose of disqualifying
them from using the elective franchise under the
law of North Carolina, should that right be grant?
ed them by the law of the -land. It is stated that
this practice is carried on in many counties of the
State, over sixty negroes having boen whipped in
one county. During a recent session of the Court
a conversation was overheard at the State Bouse

Our Washington Letter.
[FROST orn SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT.]
WASHINGTON, MONDAY, Decouibcr 31.-The last
day of thc old year sixty-six has mantled itself
with snow, and old Father Time has his retreat
sounded iu a chorus of sleigh bells. This is the
first snow of tho soasan, and a most extraordinary
fall within tho memory of half a dozen seasons.
Washington woke up to-day and found tho sleigh?
ing primo, but hod no faith in remaining; hence
haif the day went bj" before tho first horse and
cutter appoarod upon the Avenue; but this after?
noon tho town is wild over runners and bells, and
everything available is brought out. Twenty dol?
lars per hour is the moderate sum charged by tho
hiring stables for the UBO of their sleighing turn?
outs-a sum so considerable for young, spendthrift
Department Clerks working at $1200 per annum,
and of whom many arc among the cavalcade, that
it will bc hard work keeping ur.dor the twinges of
conscience, even, while thev handle tho reins most
deftly.
You. sec that General Sherman is in no hurry
about getting to Washington to report on Mexican
matters, and makes himself as comfortable at St.
Louis as though stationed there in rotiracy. The
fact is, just what I intimated in one of my previ?
ous letters to THE NEWS, that tho whole mission
turned out such a broad, indubitable "sell" that
both projectors and executors are each in a tift at
tho other for having had anything to do with it.
Tho President is mad, and Seward growls c ntin
nally to himseP. Meantime, Campbell, the duly
acer 5dited United States Minister to the Republic
of Moxico, takes tho brunt of the general ?ll-hu
mor, by adhoring to tho tenor of a very laconic dis?
patch from the State Department, which bids him
seek for tho mythical republic to which he is ac?
credited, until hb finds some vestige of ita life or
undeniable demise.
It is well, perhaps, that Sherman does not come
to tho Capitol on the wings of tho wind, as he is
tho most aggravated of them all. A private lotter,
written to hie brother. Senator Sherman, indicates
Iiis intense disgust with tho whole affair, and his
intention of forever washing his hands of similar
service in future. Tho fiery temper of the Gene?
ral could not brook tho system of trifling and de?
ception thnt was practiced upon him in his fruit?
less chase after Juarez, and he is now prejudiced to
an extont that causes him to regard tho natives
as wholly irrcclaimr.bio and unfit for self-govern?
ment. I do not know that the General will come
at all to the Capitol on this business. Tho Gov?
ernment has no wish to rouse Sherman's wrath,
and will, therefore, let things rest for a bit. The
only thing that can mar so poaceful a solution of
tho difficulty would bo a Congressional resolution
of inquiry into the mission of Campbell and Sher?
man, and the data of tho expedition. The whole
affair is of so delicate nature, and palpably embar?
rassing to the President ana Mr. Soward, that tho
Radicals will hardly lose a momen' in its introduc?
tion immediately after tho resumption of tho ses?
sion. In this event thcro will bea very protty ket?
tle of fish, which will get itself into voryhot water
the moment Sherman throws in his report of ope?
rations on tho Rio Grande.
It appears-that tho grand mass welcome to Con?
gress, which signalized tho proceedings of the
first day of tho session, is destined to live and bo
corao an object of litigation. The keeper of a
local restaurant had been engaged bv tue mana?
gers of the "welcome" to furnish a banquet for
twenty-fivo hundred dollars, and under such con?
tracts were tho edibles produced to regale tho radi?
cal stomach. Tho caterer has since made every
effort to get the sum promised or a discount, but
always with failure. Now he goes to the law, but
it is scarcely orobable that judge or jury will be
able to oxtr?cf twenty-firo hundred dollars out of
a score or two of clerics to Congressional commit?
tees, who have nothing but then: four dollars per
diem during the session, and have so slim a hold
on that, that they find it necessary to got up a
grand feed for their returning masters, in order
that they may hold the clerkships more socurely.
They havo had some very sharp diplomatic play
over" at Paris-our Minister;and the French Gov?
ernment-if we' may believe-Mr. Seward's "shad?
ows," and they ?re tho bnlv'sources from which
news can be extracted in the State Department.
That famous dispatch of old Seward's, in which he
notified Louis fi. that "next spring" would'nt do
for the departure of the Franco-Mexican army,
while his imperial promise remained on record to
take them off sooner, it seems was shown to the
French Government, which immediately returned
it in a huff, with a complaint at its "gross lan?
guage." The French Minister of Foreign Affairs
finally did receive the dispatch in question, but the
moment he ascertained that Matamoros had been
occupied by Gen. Sedgwick, up went Napoleon's
minister's hands in rage, and back came the "gross
language" and its parchment, to Minister Bigelow,
who has had to retain the custody of it from that
time. This is the reason that the Paris Moniteur,
and other Parisian journals swear that their gov?
ernment knows nothing of such a dispatch as that
that which it refuses to entertain on paper, and
returns to the party or government asking such
consideration, is wholly unknown tc it. ana may
bo ignored, though every line was conned previous :
to its return. '
With tho festivities of to-morrow, New Year's,
will open the gay season in the capital-that is to
sav, nommcdly "open the gay season." The capi?
tal of late years has fallen strangely into the habit
of not having gay or mirthful seasons, and outside
the stupid weekly receptions of the Cabinet Minis?
ters, that will last nearly up to the beginning of
Lent, and the regular fortnightly crushes at the
Presidential mansion, wo aro pretty tolerably cer?
tain to pull the winter through without an event of
social jollity, such os used to comport with the
dignity of tho olden time. In the way of amuse?
ments tho bill is not so bad. Two theatres, one
starring Jo. Jefferson, and tho other Frank Chan
frau, are taking all the spare change there is left
in tho town, which isn't much; since Ria tori and
her tromendouB charges flitted mercifully from us.
In a few days more comes Max Marstzsk Trrth his

[FROM OCR SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT.]
NEW YORK, December 80.-Hundreds of news?
boys, running about in every direction with extra
wildness m their countenances, and "Extra"
papers in their hands-hundreds of little newsboys
with big voices, and big boys with little voices, all
bawling, screaming, yelling, as though their lungs
would burst-such sights, such concerts excite no
surprise here, for they aro things of every day
occurrence; they are not, however, things of every
night occurrence also; and so, when the sight is
seen at ten o'clock at night-when the concert is
heard at a time when other concerts are going on
-when the theatres are open; and when some good
folks have gone to bed, then there is somo ex?
citement, ana every one who has a few pennies in
his pocket invests eagerly, that he may learn the
news thus proclaimed at this unseasonable hour.
Last night such sights were seen, such bawlings
were heard-newsboys crowded the cars-news?
boys besieged the theatres-newsboys stood on
your door stoop and called you up from your beds,
till looking out from tho window of your chamber
as Brabantes did when Iago and Rodrigo awoke
him with the cry of thieves-you listen to the cry,
and listening hear, and hearing leam, that there is
nows of the great yacht race. A moment-more,
and a newsboy is a" few pennies richer and yon a
few pennies poorer ; yet; you- grow excited and in?
terested as yon read that tho throe yachts have ar?
rived safely out, and that the Henrietta is the win?
ner, ha^TOg'mado "the nm- in the unprecedented
time of thirteen days and twenty-two hours.. Had
the war been going on, tidings of a great battle
could hardly have created greater excitement.
James Gordon Bennett io in. au:ecstatic state of
beatitude, and so is the gentleman who laid wagers
to tho amount of one hundred and fifty thousand
dollars on the result, backing the Henrietta, which
has won.
Brooklyn was the scene of a very extensive and
destructivo conflagration yesterday, in ? which
three oil refineries and a distillery were consumed
A thousand barrels bf such inflammable, materials
as parafine. and gasoline in ablaze at one time,
caused such o volume of smoke and flame-that the
fire waa distinctly, seen even as for ss Newark, N.
J. The loss- is -estimated at about twenty-five
thousand-dollars. - -
Ono of -the- most - extraordinary theatrical per?
formances'that has ever taken place in thiB city,
and I certainly may add one of the best, came off
last night at the Winter' Garden, where Othello
was presented,' Dawison impersonating the dusky
Hoar in German, Edwin Booth as Iago in English,
whilst the gentle Desdemona (Madame Scheller)
played in German in the scenes with Othello, and
m English in scones with the otbor dramatisperso
nau Long before the hight of the performance every
seat had been sold at prices' advanced one hun?
dred per cent. About three-fourths of tho audi?
ence were Germans, who, during the first act. ap?
plauded Dawison till the rafters rung, and did not
pay much attention to Booth; but as the play pro?
gressed the transcendent genius cf the American
tragedian grew: more and'moro manifest, and
stirred up even the Germans to such a pitch of
honest enthusiasm that cries of "Booth 1 Booth 1"
arose from every month, and he was called before
the curtain after one of his great e?brfca. Dawison
was also called out several times: in fact, the
two great tragedians were for the most part
called ont together, except where Booth's
acting was so magnificent that it produced the
result I note above; and then, as he bowed
and retired, the 'German was also compli?
mented as he deserved. I say as he deserved, for
Davison's Othello pleases me much^-for whilst
I do not consider it aS fins as Forrest's, there is
much originality in bis conception of the charac?
ter (with some faults; however) and many beautiful
points in bis acting. Booth's Iago was a master?
piece-ho ist, beyond all doubt, the greatest Iago on
the stage. Madame Scheller acquitted herseli
handsomely, and the other characters wera well
performed. The entire affair was a drarnatio treat,
such as is seldom enjoyed; and, strange to say, tba
; beauty of the performance ? was not matoriafiy
, marred hythe circumstance that it was not au
given in one language. Ira Aldridge, the .great
. colored tragedian, has delighted many a European
audience by his magnificent acting, although he
always perfonm> ia .KiigHah whilst the rest of the
play ia givqp-inr the language of tho country
wherein he appears. The performance of'Issi
, night was ridiculed beforo it came off, bat now the
ridicnlers have naught to say, for it is acknowl
edged to bo ono of the greatest dramatic enter?
tainments over witnessed since thc davB when Eeau
and tho eldor Booth appoarod together.
A moat curious aflair happened a day or two
ago in Greenwood Cemetery, which could bo ap?
propriately called after a cclclvatcd Gorman novel,
''Tho Contest at tho Gravo." A young widower,
whose first wife has been dead but threo months,
took unto himsolf a second spouse a few day? ago,
and on tho very day after tho knot was ?.?ed toole
wife number two to Greenwood Cemetery, to visit
tho gravo of wife number one. Standing over tho
gravo, the grief-stricken mon indulged himself in
a burst of sorrow, and remarked to himself that
no woman lived who could comparo with her who
lay beneath the grass-covered sod. Tho livo wife
took oxception at thc spirit of tho remark, as woll
as at the remark itself about tho spirit. She d?nicd
the truth of the statement, and added that she
considered herself far superior, in all respects, to
the dead woman. Tho ox-widowcr assured her
that she nattered herself, and that sho could not
begin to compare with tho defunct ladv either in
physio."., mental or moral oxoellence: whereupon a
quarrel arose-tho live wife beat hor bosom's lord
about the bead with an umbrolla; the man showed
fight, and there was a veritable contest at tho
grave The twain havo separated; tho lady hus
gone homo to her parents, and the ex-widower is,
practically speaking, a widower again.
A most mysterious murder was committed hero
last night;-mysterious, inasmuch as no clue can be
obtained to the motive that prompted the. perpe?
tration of the crime. A white man and a negro
wero seen to oater tho boot and shoe store of one
Christopher Church, in Thompson street, and
after tho lapse of about fifteen minutos, ono of tho
young journeymen employed in the establishment
rushed out, and pressing his band to his heart
exclaimed, "lam stabboa." On some one inquiring
by whom, he repliod, "That nigger," and poon ex?
pired. "That nigger" was then making off as fast
as he could, but tho detectives arc on his track,
and he will soon be caught.
There was fine skating on the Park ponds yes?
terday. There had boen a good cold spell and no
?u?W, au tl the ice was in tho best condition.
Thousands of persons availed themselves of thc
opportunity, and enjoyed a good day's sport. The
old year ia d' awing to a close. You will not hear
from me again till next year. MOULT WI-:.
Tho State Tax.
Mr. Editor:-The business men of Charleston
are filled with alarm upon the subject of Taxation,
and the matter requires their attentive considera?
tion.
Previous to the war, the State offered a "bonus"
to importers, by exempting from taxation all goods
of direct importation. At thc last session of thc
Legislature, the prosperity of tho State seems lo
have been lost sight of, and every effort appears to
have been made for the purpose of crushing thc
onergios of tho merchants of Charleston bv unjust
discrimination and a retrospective Tax JiilL Thc
income of the merchant is taxed at S3 on tho $100 ;
that of the professional man at $2 on tho $100.
The salea of the merchant are taxed at 60 cents on
the $100 for the year 1866. Thc large quantities of
goods, wares and merchandise shipped to this
market have been sold, and thc proceeds remitted
to the shippers. Can the commission merchant
be required to pay this tax, when the amount of
benefits ho has received from said sales are con?
fined to a small commission ? Y7e think not.
Tho merchants and business men of Charleston
are making a desperate- struggle to regain a por?
tion of her former prosperity, but if business is to
be taxed aa a crime, they must give up in despair.
To render the isolation more complete tho Legis?
lature have recently chartered railroads which de?
prive Charleston of tho trade and business of our
ora State.
Moy we ask, what class of emigrants will bc in?
duced, by the "Act to Encourage Emigration," io
settle in a State whose residents are taxed so ex?
orbitantly ?
Charleston has alw?,ys paid a large proportion
o? the taxes to the State, but for tho past vear they
will bo unbearable.
This is not a matter in which tho commercial
man alone is interested. It is one which vitally
concerns every interest ia tho city.
The owners of roal estate, and every department
of industrial pursuits, have as deep an interest in
ibo release from* such burdens aa oppress and
weigh down tho commercial prosperity of the city,
aa the especial vocation which appears to bo more?
ly the actuary for carrying out commercial pur?
poses.
We therefore suggest that a public meeting of
all of our citizens may bo forthwith called, in order
that the voice of Hie ichoie city may be heard in re?
ference, to a matter which strikes so deadly a blow
at all th tir hopes. "CHARLESTON."
[FOE THE CHABLESTON DAILY NEWS.]
GAS CONSUMERS aro retested to examine the
charges made by that corporation in regard to
Government Taxes. It will be seen that, in addi?
tion to their monthly bills, the consumer is .oU?j&c !
ed a per centage tor taxe?. By tuts extortion t jfeV
Gsa Company will be ablo to declare au additioifn
dividend to the benefit of the stockholders, but \
the expensa of their customers. All corporrtions
and business men have been in . tho habit of in?
cluding all incidental expenses in the charge of
their goods, and there is no reason why thc Gas
Company should make themselves an exception,
and enrich themselves from the pockets of tv
public. That tho Government Tax ia heavy ai;
onerous no' one will deny; but that the whole bur?
den should be shifted from the shoulders of tl ose
taxed to on innocent public, is both unjust and un?
generous. Tho Gas Company is a monopoly, and
iti receipts aro amply sufficient to pay all denian.-!--.
The public hrve been bled enough; but to bo com?
pelled to pay the taxes of a corporation is the last
b?ir which will break the camel's back.
GAS CONSUMEE.
EXECUTIVE PARDONS.-The Attorney General has
just completed and sent to the President for
transmission to the House of Representativos a
list of the Generals, members of Congress, Cabinet
officers, and other officials of high rank in tho
Confederate service, who have neon pardoned
under tho Amnesty Proclamation of May 29, 1863.
The hst contains between two and threo hundred
names, and in connection with each name is stated
the exception of the Proclamation under which tho
owner came, the names of persons recommending
his pardon, and tho date of issue. The number of
persons recommending each pardon is between
ten and fifteen. *.*
In the case of William Aiken, ex-Governor of
South Carolina, the list of recommendations reach?
es three hundred, and Geo. A. Trenholm, who was
Secretary of the Confederate Treasury, has nearly
one thousand names appended to bis petition. A
list of all the persons who have received* pardons
will be made out soon after the convention of Con?
gress, and when that is completed the House will
have received tho information in regard to the
clemency-which has been extended by the Presi?
dent to repentant rebels.-N. Y. Herald.

Seasonable Suggestions.
Winter, in this climate, is a trying season. Its un?
steady temperature greatly aggravates dyspepsia, and
acte very unfavorably upon that sensitive organ, the
liver. Tha .alternation o?. frost and thaw keeps the pores '
of the bod}' continually omening and contracting, and the
result is a condition of the system favorable to the action
of the atmospheric virus which produces Intermittent fe?
vers. Hence a PBOTECTIVE MEDICINE like HOSTETTER'S
STOMACH BITTERS is especially needed in the winter
months. Tho effect of this great CONSTIXUTIONAI. INVIQ
oRAITT, in rendering even the feeblest frame impervious
to all malarious influences, is a grand fact demonstrated
by tho uniform experience of a quarter of. a century. As
a stomachic, an anti-bilious medicine, and a preventive
and cure of Fever and Ague, lt ls tho ONE TBTNO NEED?
FUL, which none who value the preservation of. health
can afford to do without.
THE SICK, WHEN AT DEATH'S DOOR,
regret that they did not take the right antidote at the
right time. ? Thousands who are now suffering from the
early twinges of liver complaint and dyspepsia, will be
prostrate on sick beds a month hence, if they do not ar?
rest the mischief at once. Nothing is more easy. A
course of the purest and best vegetable tonic and alte?
rativo known in modern pharmacy-HOSTETTEB'S
STOMACH BITTERS-will restore the digestive organs
to their foll vigor, and bring the disordered liver into a
condition of perfect health, as certainly as sunshine dis?
sipates the morning vapors. Fever and Ague, too, is at
once broken up by this powerful antidote to all miasma?
tic diseases. Strengthen the system with the Bitters, end
yon may fiery oil tho complaints which prevail at this in
dement season. : G December 81
