-The water supply In New York" City ls
Ortfeng much "anxiety. The engineers in
Charge of the Croton Aqueduct report that, on
Saturday. September 25th, the water was five
feet seven Inches below the top of the dam.
and was falling at the rate ol seven Inches
every twenty-four hours, and that, consequent?
ly, the flow of water in the aqueduct was re?
duced to less than 13,000,000 gallons a day.
The quantity of water in all the city reservoirs
on Saturday was 230,000,000 gallons^ The daily
consumption of water in New York ls estimat?
ed at 68,000.000 gallons, or 50.000.000 gallons
more than the 18,000,000 gallons a day now
flowing through the aqueduct to the reser?
voirs. On Saturday, therefore, New York had
leas than five days' supply of water. Newl'ork
is entirely surrounded by salt water, and her
condition would be pitiable in case of a total
failure of the Croton works to furnish the daily
That Terrible Taxation.
The State taxes now collecting, for the
year 186S, amount in the aggregate to about
$1,200,000, and the Slate taxes for the year
1869 are due and must be paid on or before
March 1st, next. It is not likely that the
expenditures for 1869 will be set down at
less than $750,000; so that the people of the
State, within a period of less than nine
mor tbs, will be called on to pay into the
treasury at least two million of dollars.
And this is without taking iuto account the
taxation of the. cities and counties, which
will swell the total taxation to the neighbor?
hood of three and a half million dpllars.
Of this enormous sum, the chief part will
go into the pockets of Radical officials who'
hold their positions, not for the public g^pd,
but for their personal aggrandizement; and
it is no wonder that our people should cast
about for some means of equalizing the tax?
ation and of making every class bear its
share of the common burden.
The State Constitution forbids the levying
of any poll tax except for educational pur?
poses, and if it were not prohibited by the
organic law our niisrepresentatives In the
State Legislature would not be eager to di?
minish their waning i>opularity with their
only stay and support, by imposing a tax
upon the colored people. From the State
Legislature we need not expect either econ?
omy or equity, and tho taxpaying citizens
must look to their own efforts for redress
One suggestion made by a country con?
temporary is, that the land tax be equalized
by making the colored laborer who works on
shares pay a proportion of the land tax
equal to his interest in the crop. Under the
existing arrangement, the laborer's one
third of the crop is net profit, while from
the two-thirds of the land owner must be
deducted the expenses of the farm, in order
to show what is made by the year's risk and
troubl?. The Mea is that he who shares in
tlieprofit ought also to share in the expense;
and if the planters in the different neighbor?
hoods act with unanimity, they can undoubt?
edly make the laborer bear his part of the
load of taxation.
The whole question is a ven- simple one.
As the expenses of the farmers increase their
profits decrease. They expect to pay State
taxes; but when the amount of the tax is
four and five times as much as in any pre?
ceding year, the probability of profit be?
comes particularly small. Their corn crops
may fail ; their cotton may be cut down to a
third of a crop; but the tax-gatherer goes
his rounds as usual, and makes no difference
in his demands, whether the season i>? gwU
or bad, successful or unsuccessful. The
planters, then, when they find that exces?
sive taxation eat? way their profit, must
increase their man or the coming year by
reducing their other i xpenses. Labor, as
an important element of cost, first demands
attention. The planter first carefully es' '.
t?mates his working expenses, on the bash) of i
a crop of the average of the last three years, i
to be sold at the average price. If he finds .
that in consequence Of the increased taxa?
tion he has little chance of doing more than i
make both ends meet, he must in some way ,
reduce his outlay without diminishing bis i
expectation of a crop. There is no room :
for making less his personal expenses ; they
are small enough already. All that he can
do is to call his han?ls together and tell them
frankly that they mast accept less compen?
sation for their work. The hands can be
made to see that this Is done In no spirit of
grinding or oppression, but because the
planter cannot pay more and make money.
They will understand this readily enough;
nor will they fail to comprehend their situa?
tion. They will see. that it is the Radical
Legislature of the State which injures them;
while the planters desire to give the
laborer the highest compensation they can
afford. The 3um.e course of action applies
to laborers who are hired by the month ; and
the result of the plan must be to convince
the laboring classe? that their only hope of
higher wages, and more comfort for their
familiefi, is in electing to office upright and
capable men, in the place of the knaves and
tricksters who now impoverish whites and
The value of labor is determined by the
demand, and the demand is determined by
the profit to be derived from its.eraployment.
Excessive taxation, therefore, in diminishing
the profit of the emptoyer.. Jessens the do?
rn md for labor, and forces the laborer to
work at a lower rate or stan-e. We hope to
see wages advance; for than this there can
be no better sign of a solid improvement in
our position; but while taxation, is as high
as it is now, the laborer, however worthy of
his hire, must exj>ect to see his yearly profit
grow steadily and suroly less. .

THE important letter from our able and

position of the high officials in regard to the
P'\ posed tax on cotton, together with preg?
nant hints about Virginia affairs and the
policy of the administration.
THE negroes in Laurens are stealing cot?
ton at agreat rate. The only present remedy
is great vigilance on thwart of the plant?

The strike of the Longshoremen; under,
the auspices of the "Longshoremen's Pro?
tective Association," lias doubtless caused
great embarrassment to our shipowners, and
has certainly retarded the deliver}' and ship?
ment of the produce-and merchandise which
cumber up the wharves of thc city. But
the Longshoremen have the clear right to
combine to obtain higher wages; it rests
with them to say at what rate they will or
will not work. On the other hand, the ship?
ping agents must determine for themselves
whether they can afford to pay the price de?
manded, o.- whether they can get the work
done at a lower rate. It ls their right to
employ whom they please, at whatever price
they may agree upon, and when the Long?
shoremen endeavor to prevent any p?rsons
from working, because they take less than
the standard price of the association, they
commit an unlawful act and expose them?
selves, we should judge, tb the severe penal?
ties of the law.
The whole matter is lucidly explained in
the following extract from a note in Mr. Mc
Culloch's edition of Adam Smith's "Wealth
"If any number of persons choose to com?
bine to refuse to work, except for 41 certain
amount of wages, or for certain hours per day,
or week, to forbid them would seem to be a
most oppressive interference with one of the
distinguishing privileges of free laborers. It
was found, too, that, practically, the laws
against such combinations were good for noth?
ing, and that, instead of putting them down,
they gave them a secret character, and made
them be easily perverted to other and more
objectionable objects. But when workmen
have power to refuse to employ themselves on
terms of winch they disapprove, they have got
all, In this respect, to which they arc entitled.
None of them have any right to dictate to their
fellows, or to say that, because they object lo
certain stipulations in the terms offered by
such and such employer?, no one else shall be
allowed to accept them. A pretension of this
sort strikes at the very foundations of society,
and, If tolerated, might enable juntos of de?
signing Individuals to Inflict Irreparable Injury,
not only on the employers of labor, but on the
manufacturers of the country, am? consequcnt
ly-on the lasting Interests of the laboring class.
We need not. however, be surprised to learn
that this ls what numbers of workmen In vari?
ous places have attempted to do; and that
combinations have been formed, not for the
legitimate purpose of refusing to work except
on certain conditions, but for preventing other
workpeople who may disapprove of or not
choose to insist on these conditions, accepting
thc terms offered by their employers. The
measures taken to enforce this most unjustifi?
able pretension have, in some Instances, been
of a very obnoxious description, and have
evinced thc existence of a very dangerous
spirit. Nothing should be omitted that may
serve to root out and suppress combinations
for such illegal ends. They are completely
subversive of that security essential to the
prosecution of all indastrlous undertakings;
and are, at bottom, as hostile to thc interests
of those that enter Into them as they are to
the interests of everyone else."
But tho Charleston Longshoremen, nearly
all of whom are negroes, are now striving
to compass their ends by brute violence anti
intimidation. On yesterday, they attacked
and wounded a white man, not a member,
of course, of the association, who was
working on] the wharves at the old rate3 of
uml later tn tue <tRy they htrrtprt brick?
bats at the laborers who continued to work,
bruising them slightly. Encouraged by
the impunity which attended their first on?
slaught, tliey made a second attack; and
to-day we may look for a more serious dis?
turbance unless our pusillanimous Chief
Magistrate plucks up the courage to do his
duty and protect the working laborers from
Lbe violence of their black assailants. If
Mayor Pillsbury will not do this, the men
who desire to work must take care of them?
selves without his help; but we cannot for?
get that tito same official who now sends-a
contemptibly .small squad of policemen,
armed with their staves, to save from harm
a body of industrious laboring men, could turn
out the whole police force, with Winchester
rifles anti fixed bayonets, as well as a batta?
lion of United Stutcs troops, when there
was a likelihood that a number of Georgia
gentlemen, with their Charleston entertain?
ers, would resent, as it deserved, any in?
dignity that a colored mob might offer
Gold Below Par :
Perhaps the most irregular phase of the
recent agony among the bulls and bears of
the New York Gold Room is the apprehen?
sion that, we are told, was at one time seri?
ously entertained that gold might sink to
par, or even-be quoted at a discount. Thc
New York Ilerairf gravely alludes to thia as
one of tlie "terrible consequences" of the
panic, which were averted by the timely
suspension of the operations of the Gold
Board. It says:
"Had the Gold Byard gone into regular ses?
sion, it would have been necessary to foreclose
the outstanding accounts of every member in
default. From fifty to sixty millions of gold
would thus have been brought under the ham?
mer, and the singular spectacle would have
been witnessed of gold selling down to par. if
not below it. This would have been the Indu?
bitable result of the forcible eulo o? so much
gold. The mistake waa discovered in time and
prevented. Every member of the Exchange
would have been bankrupted, for the heaviest
capital-could not have withstood the pressure
of such Immense sales."
SOMEBODY in the Postotfice Ring wants a
fut job; and so, we are told, the newpo3tage
stamps ure to be discarded and a complete
new set is to be furnished to the exacting
public. Tlie next issue will be ornamented,
like those formerly in use, with the vignettes
of Washington, Franklin, Jefferson. Jackson
and other statesmen ; and it is to be hoped
that a phrenological examination of the
heads of these historic worthies will show
their bumps of adhesiveness to be reasona?
bly well developed. They should, at least,
be made to last until the eud of the present
administration of General Grant.
THE printers made sad work of a para?
graph in the special telegram from Wash?
ington which we published yesterday. The
paragraph should have read thus: "Promi?
