(says the Wilmington Dispatch), that negroes in

And on the other hand they prefer to work for
wages without a manager than upon shares under

SATURDA? MORNING, JANUARY 5, 1867.
COMMERCE OF THE PORT.
Notwithstanding the dullness that pervaded
our market during nearly the whole of the first
month of the quarter ending December 31,
I860 (occasioned chiefly by tho sickness pre?
vailing at that time), yet tho imports and ex?
ports of this quarter compared very favorably
with those of the corresponding three months
of tie year 1866, and exhibit such a marked
improvement as to indicate the revival of our
former commercial prosperity.
On a careful examination of the figures of
the last three months, as shown in our tabular
statements of this morning, we find that in the
foreign and coastwise exports of cotton, tho
increase of tho fourth quarter of 1866 over the
same period of the year 1865, ia nearly 20,000
bales, while a comparison of the total value of
exports for tho same time shows an excess in
favor of the fourth quarter of 1866 of over
This is certainly a source of congratulation,
as it indicates that, if under the most adverse
circumstances, the trade of our port exhibits
such an improved condition, what we may not
anticipate when capital sufficient shall be cen?
tred here to give an additional impetus to all
branches of commerce and manufactures.
The following figures show tho business
transactions of the last three months :

THE NEW STATE TAX.
A communication in another column, directs
attention to the recent enactment by the Gen?
eral Assemby of South Carolina, of a Tax Law
for 1866 and 1867. The merchants and business
men of every grade will doubtless move at
once in this matter, both in their individual
and corporate capacities. We do not know by
whom this Tax Rill was drawn, but it is clear
that it was hastily prepared, and is as far from
an equitable apportionment of the burden as a
Tax Bill well can be. We know nothing of its
history, but from the internal evidence, should
say that it was tinkered up in the committee
room to the last possible moment, and then
rapidly smuggled through the several readings
into the dignity of an "Ait." How strange
that the most important of all laws should al?
ways be thus ushered into being. The Legis?
lature spendsTiours, days and weeks, discussing
unimportant questions, tho Tax and Appro?
priation Bills being loft entirely to the Com?
mittee of Ways and Means. The House, to all
intents and purposes, never passes on them at
all. The Clerk reads them in a formal, mo?
notonous manner, no one listening ; and whee
committee knows what the Tax Law is ; and we
never can have a well digested Tax Bill until
the time for the meeting of our General As?
sembly is changed. What are Tax and Appro?
priation Bills when set in the balance against
visions of Christmas turkey and smoking plum
The Act just passed is open to objections on
various grounds. In the first place, insofar as
it relates to a tax for the year 1866, it is
clearly an ?x-post-faclo law and canuot be exe?
cuted. Commission merchants, auctioneers
and others are taxed from two to ten per cent?
?n their sales for 1866, the proceeds of which,
in many'cases, have long since been returned
and the accounts closed. There are houses
here, for instance, selling whiskey for parties
in Cincinnati, Baltimore, otc, on which they
charged, say from two-and-half to five per cent,
commission. They have made return sales for
the past year and paid in the money. The
two-and-a-half to five per cent, commission is
now all they havo to show for the transaction.
And yet the State now asks these commission
merchants to pay $10 on every $100, or from
one to three hundred per cent, more than the
total amount of their commissions. This is
robbery, not taxation .'
The tax on real estate is thirty cents on
every dollar, and this is the only low tax in
the whole schedule. The system is iniquitous,
and especially detrimental to all the inter?
ests of our city. Whether or not oil the appro?
priations made by the Legislature were neces?
sary, is not to the present purpose. We
might have* grumbled at heavy taxation, no
matter how equitably the burden had been ap?
portioned, but we would have had no special
grounds for our objections. As it is, the fact
of a discrimination in favor of the agricultural
and to the prejudice of the commercial interest,
is so palpable and so oppressive that it natu?
rally rouses all the opposition we are capable
of. This discrimination, together with the ex
pott-facto character of its provisions for 1866,
in our opinion, offers sufficient ground for a
general resistance to its execution. The Cham?
ber of Commeroe and the Board of Trade
should lead the way in the matter ; other'cor
porations will follow. Our correspondent sug?
gests a general mass meeting of citizens at an
early date. Perhaps that would be best.
That our citizens should be sensitive to an
additional onerous tax now, when they already
pay a heavy tax to the United States, and
another to the city, is hardly to be wondered at.
We regret that our delegation in the Legis?
lature did not find time to examine the Act
before they came down. And this, too, with a
member from Charleston in the Speaker's
chair. It seems they bad first to be in?
formed of its unjust enactments, by our
citizens, who read the Act with great attention
upon its first publication in Charleston. As no
redress can be expeoted, therefore, from our
legislators, will not our leading merchants take
the matter ia hand, and rouse the public mind
to a full understanding of the case. It may
suit the narrow prejudices of certain up-country
representatives to make Charleston pay for the
entire government of the State. To tell them
that such a policy is short-sighted is of no
avail. We muBt see to it ourselves, that no
such unjust burden is laid upon our shoulders.
In old times, "when all the world went ont
to be taxed," it was understood that the tribute
required was equitable, and duly apportioned
to the means of the several individu?is who
were to pay it. There i8 ?0 reason why it
should be otherwise now. If ever there was a
time when a generous State might grant an ex?
emption from taxation to any of her citizens,
euch discretion should have been exercised at
this time in favor of our poor, charred, weather?
beaten, bombarded, and ruined city. We are
struggling to recover our lost ground, and by
way of helping us to accelerate our speed, our
alma mater (a stop-mother in this instance)
loads ns with this grievous burden.
