Secretary Boutwell and thc Ineomc
Tax-An Important Question in the
Court of Claims.
WASHINGTON, April 2.
At the Cabinet meeting to-day it is under?
stood thc President read his proposed message to
Congress for tho removal of disabilities. The
message met with favor amone thc members of
the Cabinet.
A strong pressure is brought upon the President
oy senators and representatives to induce Secre
tary Boutwell to desist from his advocacy of the
income tax. Letters are pouring in npon Con
gress from all parts of the country against the
extension of what they pronounce a most odious
SJRU inquisitorial law. Thc President has prom
ised to call thc attention of Secretary Boutwell to
this measure, and Indicated his willingness to
abandon it if deemed advisable. Secretary Bont
weU, however, ls known to be favorable to this
tax, and will insist on its extension without re
duction. He maintains that it is the most equita
ble tax in our whole tax system, as it bears
principally on the wealthier classes, and not upon
the industrial interests.
There ls an important question pending in the
Conrt of Claims, as to when the President's proc?
lamation, dated June 24th, isca, regarding com?
mercial intercourse and removing restrictions in
certain portions of thc South, took effect. Thc
24th of June of that year was Saturday, but thc
proclamation bearing that date was not promul?
gated until Tuesday following. Meantime thc
Treasury agents made many Important seizures.
The intention ls to appeal the question to the
Supreme Court, In order to definitely determine
when the proclamation took effect, whether on
the 24th or the 27th. If the conrt decides in favor
ef the 24th, the proceeds of much cotton will be
restored to the original owners.
The best opinion is that the recent legal tender
'tecUlon by the Supreme Court will be reversed.
The French Government has withdrawn Us
monopoly regarding cables, so far as the United
States ts concerned, and full reciprocity has been

both Mayors on the streets to-night. The United
States Marshal served a writ on Ellyson to give
op possession of the City Hall and other property;

will continue as Mayor. This ls done with a view
to get the matter before tho Supreme Conrt.

clusion that it will become a law. Although
the result of the contest. R6 thus shown, is a

THE CITIZENS' COHORT. I
AN UNITED PEOPLE AND UNITED
PRESS.
MAKE READY FOR THE CONVENTION.
Bear it in Blind.
[From the Union Times.]
Every paper in the 8tate has expressed its
views upon the resolutions recently adopted by
the Press Conference. They arc almost unani?
mously endorsed.
We must bear Jn mimi that the Convention of
anti-Radicals assemble:-: in June, only two months
on". Some preparations should be made to secure
a proper representation In tho convention from
Union.
It ls purely a convention of antl-Radlcals-of
men opposed to the corruption and dishonesty
of the present State ottleials, executive and legis?
lative.
Thc Plan Proposed.
[From thc Orangcburg News.]
The plan proposed ls simply tills: Upon the full
and unreserved recognition of thc civil rights of
the colored people of the State, an effort ls to be
madero unite all thc citlzcus in thc endeavor to
secure nonest and good mc.? as our rulers ami
representatives. A meeting of thc Silixens is to bc
called in each county, of black and Tait* Demo?
crat and Republican. That meeting ls to endorse
the policy recommended by the unanimous press,
and to select delegates to represent thoconuty ut
the convention of citizens to bc hold in Columbia
on thc loth of June. Thc day for these county
meetings will bc suggested and recommended hy?
the press, lt ls thc sentiment and suggestion of
the press, and tliey utter the voice of Hie people,
that colored men shall bc choseu as delegates
from each county as well as white.
In some counties, this great movement will be
a Buccess. The day will have come when thc
colored citizens will reason together with thc
white citizens, and take counsel as to thc best
met? and best measures for thc good of their
common country.
Heaven ?rant that this may bc in Orangeburg !
In order that this shall bc the case in our county,
there is a vital and pressing necessity that our
citizens should each one do his part.
*******
Men or Orangcburg, you know that thc course
advocated by the press ls the >nly one that has
one shadow of promlw of success. We aopeal to
you now, In no vague and eloquent generality, to
be more practicable, and to accept Tacts which
your opposition cannot change; but we appeal to
you for thesakcof honesty, purity, for toe sake of
vour State, your altars, homes and ht le ones, to
"favor, to work for this movement. Away with
the lethargy of despair I. Say not to yourselves,
we have made so many efforts and they have
failed, therefore we shun make uoother! You
have never yet made a sensible practical effort
upon the basis of facti
This ls the first one which ls being Inaugurated
now by the people of South Carolina. Oh I let
none stand off nor shrink from thc performance
of his part in this grand effort. * * ? * *
And to our colored citizens we would speak In
favor of this movement. Thc facts or your citi?
zenship is recognized and admitted by thc white
people of your State. They greet yon as as rel
low-ciiizous and ask you to come and reason to?
gether for ti e welfare of their common State.
They arc willing to nominate and they will
nominate anil vote for thc honest and won hy of
yon to hold ?nices lu thc State.
Do you ask more than this! Docs thc party
that control.? and enslaves your vote give you or
promise you more tlinu this? Do you ask or
promise yourselves more than this?
This ls what wc recognize and guarantee to bc
your rights. And we ask yon simply to exercise
your rights and prerogatives as citizens of this
State, not to continue this rule of corruption
which ls as revolting to your sense or decency sud
honesty as to ours, but to secure the gove rnmcnt
to those who arc worthy, whether they arc white
or black.
We ask you to unite with us in thc great effort.
When the meeting ls called in this county, come
to lt and consent to be delegates to represent the
honest and worthy citizens or ymir State who
would redeem their State from Us vile durance cf
dishonesty and unworthiness.
Integrity our .Standard.
[From thc Lancaster Ledger.]
lu many respects, wc arc suffering Irons mis
rule and misgovernment, and which should bc
ihe purpose of all, Irrespective of past differences,
LO improve. The legislative body recently uti*
mimed is characterized as the most corrupt ever
Assembled. All good citizens, white amt black,
?hould see to lt, that our next Legislature ts com?
posed of different material, or, ut least, those mem?
bers who proved themselves unworthy or the trust
corniced should not bc allowed to again impose
upon thc people. Much has been said against thc
executive branch or thc State Government,
sr which, personally, we know nothing. In all
Icpartments, State and National, wc presume,
personal advantages ?ire taken, when opportunity
affords. This bas been thc case, generally, willi
ill administrations, and we suppose will bc, so
[outr as republican form of government lasts.
Thc main Issue now before us, and which should
rulo in the rail elections, is simply between bad
?nd good government. The past lins settled Itself,
ind UK issues arc living luc?s which no sane mind
will attempt to refine. Ignorance and corruption
nott be thrust mit or the law making power or

TUE raren HIT-SOME OF RAI NEV S ADVEN
TURES IN WASHINGTON REV EA CED.
Whitlemore, as lias already been briefly stated
in Tut: NEWS, addressed lils Republican constitu?
ents at Georgetown on thc Ski ult. Ills attempted
?ustl?lcutlon of thc corruption of which he had
Licm Convicted was of th* same character as that
lie has uttered elsewhere. At the conclusion of
Iiis remarks he was answered by Ralney, thc col?
ored senator, who, in thc course of his speech,
sahl:
He would answer to thc call ma le from no ill
trill to Mr. Whitlemore, but from a sense of duty
-that When he was lu Washington bo was in?
debted to linn lor many courtesies, which ren?
dered the task he was about to cuter upon of ex?
posing I he falsities of his statements and Hie
sophistries of his address au un pleasant and
painful one. Yet that duty he would discharge
without rear, ravor or affection. That Mr. Whi?
temore had been guilty of conduct lu bis repre?
sentative capacity in (,'ongress that mude him un?
worthy (?ra seat iu that body, could not success?
fully be controverted or denied by any one who
knew any i liing of thc charges made against him.
He said that Whtttemore denied that lie was ex?
pelled from his seat. That he was not actually
expelled was thc truth, but that he was
virtually expelled was equally true. A vote
had been takeu lu the House by which lt was
absolutely certain that thc two-thirds necessary
lor expulsion would bc obtained-he as Daddy
Cain once said, saw Hie Sirocco comliig and dod?
ged its blast and force by resigntng. Let those
herc present bear lu mind, that this cry raised by
him or persecution, Ac. has no. foundation.
Who are lils pretended persecutors? Arc they
Democrats and enemies tn thc party to which he
is associated? lu fuct, are thc? not Republicans
ami Radical Rcpullcans of whom he complains.?
Who investigated thc charges made again-1 him.'
Was it nut a committee made up almosi exclusive?
ly tu'Radicals? Who passed a unanimous vote
Hint he was un worthy iff u seul In the National
Legislature! Was ll not by a body ut men, more
than three-fourths of whom belonged to tile party
with which he ls Identified? If there had
been any palliation or excuse for his
conduct, do you suppose that thc party
or which he ls a member would have inflicted
upon him a disgrace which. In somedegrce, would
act Injuriously to lt? Un the contrary, lt ls no;
reasonable to suppose, and do you not bel.eve.
that il it hud not been u ilagrnntcuse of corrup?
tion on thc part of a member of Congress, that
Hutt ra?ntberofCongiess, associated and tdeati
ded arti h the great majority or the body or which
be was a member, and whose political opinions
and sentiments were In perfect accord with that
majority-do you believe he would have been
sent home, stamped by them willi the Ignominy
of having degraded aud disgraced his position"?
It is Impossible for you tb so believe. Depend
upon it, il'there had been any plausible pretext
to let him escape it would have been resorted to,
for it is not thc habit or interest or partie* tu turu
on Its members, nnd the Republican party
forms no exception to the rule. Hut he says
his zeal lor the welfare and Improvement
or the ignorant colored men who had but lately
emerged rrom slavery to a condition of rrcedom,
aud who were poor and unable to help them?
selves, induced him to take the money ror the e.i
detshlp. Now, what evidence have you for lt. or
what proof have y ou that he ever spent that mo?
ney for that purpose ? You have nothing but his
word fur ii, and vou must remember and keep it
in mind that tne word of ft man who has dis?
graced thc high position to which he has been
elevated, and, by lils acts, has been deemed un?
worthy iff holding lt, must have corroborative
testimony toentltiehim to belier. Senator Ralney
said that he did not believe that he ever spent one
dollar i>rhi8 own money in erecting the many
schoolhouses o.' which he made such, boasts
that, on the contrary, lie had mnde money out
or all these jobs. Willi regard Ki the regrets of
General Logau and other mernb?rs of Congress
of Iiis virtual expulsion ami their desire to wel?
come him back as a member of the House,
he did not believe a word of it. If GeneraFLogan
expressed any such regret and desire, lie acted
more like a child than a man, aud had Justly for?
feited thc opinion that had boen entertained for
his firmness and honesty, but lt required better
proof than the word of thc ex-member of Con?
gress to convince him that a man who, according
to his account, had pursued him with bitterness
and illiberality which amounted to persecution
and cruelty, should so stultify hlmseir as to ex?
press thc hope or soon seeing In thc hall of thc
House of Representatives one whom he had so
solemnly and earnestly denounced as being un
wort hy of a seat In that body.
senator Ralney went on at some length to show
the emptiness or Mr. Whlttomorc's pretensions to
credit ror the many benefactions he claimed to
have conferred .on the colored race, anti cautioned
Hiern to beware how they trusted one who had
disgraced the high position to which he had been
elevated by their conlldence and votes.
As soon as Rainey had finished, he, In turn,
was ai tacked in lively style by one of his brother
colored Radicals, Representative Jones:
Thc flrst charge, he said, he had against the
senator, was that with all lils pr?terions of love
to thc negro race, he had, on a very Important
occasion, Ignored them by attempting to pass off
as a Spaniard. The most of the meeting would
recollect that last winter, thc senator and
hlmseir were appointed delegates to a labor con?
vention lu Columbia-that thc convention in Col?
umbia appointed delegates to attend a National
Labor Convculiun in Washington, and that J. H.
Ralney, thc senator who had Just addressed them,
were with others oue or the delegates. Ile
charged that when Senator Ralney got to
Washington, he lound that thc boasted equality
which ls represented to exist at the national
capital did not extend to everything-that there
were certain sights he wished to sec. Unit were
not accorded to those who had African blood lu
their veins, and he forthwith assumed witta
Vt'imbush, tho senator norn Chester, to pass on*
as spaniards, one calling himself as lion Rodrigo
and the oilier as Hon Alfonso.
Senator Italuey (interrupting.) That ls a He, a
barefaced He.
Representative Jones, Keep cool, senator.
That is not a circumstance compared to the
charges I am prepared to make and substantiate
against von. He continued by saying that he
niude thc" charge on lils Individual responsibility,
and that he could prove lt. That he had en?
deavored to keep In accord with the senator, hut
found it impossible. The split was now made be?
tween them, aud when "Qreck meets Urcclc, then
comes the tug <>r war," aud he was prepared ror
that "lug." He went on to describe, in a very
ludicrous manner, the adventures or th? senator
passing orras a Spanish don at Washington.
He proceeded to charge, thal ll came with bad
grace from the senator to denotmcc H. P. Whliic
inore, who for three years and ten months had
braved his breast to rebel bullets-had stood be?
fore rebel batteries-had endured all that time
thc hardships and diseases of the camp, and
breasted thc dangers of the Held-all for thc eman?
cipation of thc slaves, when the senator was en?
gaged in the lucrative business or running the
blockade, by means whereof the rebels were sup?
plied with cannon, rides, muskets and ammuni?
tion to con linne the war, and to prolong the
shivery of thelicgro. That there was no excuse
in saying he could not get to the North, and Join
the loyal army, for each successful trip or thc
blockude rtiuuer placed him at Nassau or Burmu?
da, where, ir he had wished to juin the loyal
army, abundant opportunities were presented to
him by which he could havegottcu to New York.
Thc speaker pressed bis point earnestly and
vigorously against thc senator, more than inti?
mating that his pretended love for thc negro was
a nev; burn /.cal by which he succeded lu getting
position, and hoping to gel still higher.
He further charged lliat thc senator had a great
contempt for tuc Ignorance of tuc negro, and
said that he held In hts hand ii letter written by
him loan internal revenue collector, saying that
there was not a colored person lu Georgetown
County cupatsle of lining the humble otllce or
county collector: that, having a lighter race, he
looked down upon the 11 J ck man with contempt.
Ile enlarged considerably upon this point. lu
conclusion, he said lie had many more charges
against the senator, much more serious in their
nature than those he had brought against him,
but lie would not press now.
Ralney. llrlng Hiern out. ir they ni e as raise
and uusubstaiitlal as those already made, I have
no rear or them.
Jones. Don't get excited. You will and your
hands full when you attempt to answer thc charges
made against you.
Upon Junes retiring from thc stand, Rainey
rose, und was proceeding to reply to thc attacks
made upon him, In a capital and telling speech,
when Joues Interrupted hun by asking him ir he
would permit him to put a question tu him?
Ralney said certainly.
Jones. Then 1 ask the senator to Inform this
andlenco whether, when he was in Washington, as
a delegate lo thc labor couvention, he passed off
as Don Rodrigo and Wimbush as Don Alfonso, or
whether he played the part or Don Alfonso and
vrimhtish figured as Don Rodrigo? I think the
question important.
This question brought down the house, and was
too mncb.for the senator, who quit the stand with
animated disgust pictured on Ins countenance.
TUE CONFEDERATE DEAD.
REMOVAL OP TIIR1R REMAINS FROM GET?
TYSBURG.
"Nothing from South Carolina.''
Tho accompanying letter and circular ex?
plain the work proposed to be done by the
Hollywood Memorial Association, in removing,
to Richmond the neglected remains of tho
Confederate soldiers who (ell at Gettysburg.
So fur. only a miserable sum has been collected
for the purpose, and it will be noticed that
there is "Nothing from South Carolina."' The
suite which poured out lier blood like water in
thc cause of the South has, up to this time,
given nothing for preserving from insult nnd
pollution the mouldering bones of the gallant
men who fell in thc mighty conflict In Penn?
sylvania. Now that the truth is known, this
reproach will not be allowed to rest upon our
people:
LuxixirroN", VA., March 8, 1870.
2iij Bear Mrs.-: I have felt great Inter?
est In the success of the scheme of the Holly?
wood Memorial Association of Richmond for
the removal of the Confed?rale dead at Gct
tysburg, since learning of the neglect of their
remains on thc battle-llelJ. I hope that sulli
clent funds may be collected hythe association
to accomplish this pious work. I f ?el assured
that lt will receive the grateful thanks of the
humane and benevolent. May I request you
to apply the enclosed amount to this object.
* ? ? * , * *. ;
With great respect and esteem, I am your
most obedient servant. R. E. LEE.
"To Mrs. -, Richmond, Va.".
The above letter was received In Richmond
by one of Hie directors ot the Hollywood Me?
morial Association enclosing a very handsome
contribution from General Lee to aid In the
removal of the Confederate dead from Gettys?
burg. As" It was a private loiter, lt was not
published until permission was granted by
General Lee. In a subsequent letter, dated
lTtli Mut ch, 1870, he says : '-.My former letter
was written for your own eye, and I nm always
reluctant, to be unnecessarily brought before
the public. Still, if you lliiuk that Its publica?
tion will be of any aid to Hie cause which the
Hollvwootl Memorial Association has so kindly
undertaken, I cannot refuse Hie slight assis?
tance within ray power."
We are Informed by tho president of thc
National Cemetery at Gettysburg-David Wil?
lis; Lsq.-that Hie charter incorporating the
association in charge ol that national cemetery
provides only for the "interment of the re?
mains ol* I hose who fell in defence ot the
Union." It is estimated that 7000 Confederate
dead were hastily interred at Gettysburg, (?00
alone haring limit graves marked. The marks
on these COO graves, Mr. Willis informs ns, ure
fast becoming obliterated. The remains of
Hie 7000 of our kindred wno there offered so
willingly their lives for ns and ours are con?
stantly, weare lold, being thrown out from
their shallow sepulchres "'as the farmers culti?
vate their fields.'1
An appeal has been already made .to thc
Southern people by the Hollywood Association
to aid in the removal of what we once esteem?
ed "our beloved and honored dead," from Get?
tysburg, a work which General Lee terms "a
pious work," and of which he, In the letter
ubove cojiied, says: "I feel assured that it will
receive the grateful thanks of the humane and
benevolent." This appeal went forth more
than a year ago, and abouUionc thousand dol?
lars have been received by the association from
Ihc following sources:
From Norfolk, Va., about.$450
From Uichittoad, Va., about. ??W
From General Lee and his family about.li".
From a lady in Louisiana. 2S I
From the State or Alabama. 85
From thc State or Georgia. 4B
These figures require little commentary.
We would simply ask: Are they a irue indica?
tion of our estimate of what we fought, bled
and died for, during these memorable venrs
between April 18GI and April I8G5 >. Is ike so
cheap In th's our land of chivalry, orl3 a name
and a nation but nn empty sound ? The Legis?
lature of Louisiana has recently-nobly, we
would say-authorized $5000 to be paid from
her public treasury for the protection of her
dead at Fredcricksburg. It was a righteous
act on her part, for it ls her solemn duty
to guard thc graves of her children where
ever found. They rest, however, In Virginia,
where the grave of the Southern soldier who
fell under Lee and Jackson will ever be a hal?
lowed spot. Bot our dead at Gettysburg And
no resting-place. Their bones He scattered
on that terrible field, exposed to every insult,
polluted and cast out by North and South, by
friend and foe. The Soldiers' Nattonal Ceme?
tery has no place for them, as it is only lor
"the remains of those who fell In defence of |
the Union;" and they arc thrown ont of the
shallow sepulchres In which, in our haste on
the field of battle, we Interred them, exposed
to every insult "as the farmers cultivate their
fields."
If there is indeed any one thing that makes
us tremble most of all for the future of our
country, lt is thc quick oblivion that covers the
past. The nation that never remembers the
past, will never be mindful of the future. Thc
present alone will be its God.
We ask, shall this be so in the South ? Shall
the North provide for its dead, and have we
no thought for ours ? Where is our boasted
pride and chivulry ? Eighty-five dollars from
Alabama and forty-six dollars from Georgia !
Nothing from South Carolina ! Nothing from
Tennessee ! Nothing from Mississippi ! Noth?
ing from Texas I Nothing from Arkansas !
Nothing from Florida! If this had been told
in their lives to the seven thousand men whose
bones now lie on the field of Gettysburg
the "seven thousaud who have not bowed
thc knee to Baal"-do you think they would
have so willingly offered up their lives
for us and ours, to make us a nation, to
give us liberty, if they had been told
that we would let their bones bc thus
thrown out of their graves "as the farmers
cultivate their fields?" In the name of our
country, in tile name of our kindred, in tho
name of honor, in thc name of bare humanity,
wc ask the Southern States and Southern
people, one and all, to come forward and res?
e?o our name and the cause for which so many
died, from this infamous reproach, that, unless
immediately removed, will be a lasting re?
proach to the latest day to us and our chil?
dren forever. Individually and nationally.
VIRGINIA.

?Sr- CAUTION.-AUDACIOUS COUN?
TERFEIT !-Thc reputation which for many years
has attached to HOSTRTTER'S STOMACH BIT?
TERS, as thc standard Tonic of thc agc. and thc
large demand for the article, not ouly In the Unit
cd States but elsewhere, have provoke I thc cupid?
ity or the counterfeiting tribe, and lt has been ex?
tensively simulated and Imitated by unscrupu?
lous sharpers.
Tue most daring counterfeit of said article
which has been attempted, has recently come to
our knowledge. The engraved steel label on bot?
tles containing thc genuine bitters, with Its beau?
tiful vignette or St. George and thc Dragon, Its
shield, containing a warning against counterfeit?
ers, and its note or hand ror "one cent" at the
root, sigued by our firm name, has been copied so
closely that the fraud can only be detected on a
minute Inspection. Tua dark label ls also well
counterfeited, and tlie wording on both the imita
talion and genuine are precisely the same, the dif?
ference being simply in lite execution of the work;
that ot thc Imitation being somewhat coarse
than thc genuine, oilier counterfeits arc cb. thc
market, which arc tu all particulars the same ns
described above, with thc exception of a slight
difference Ul the spelling or our name.
In addi! lou to I lie above, these counterfeiters
have gone so far in some Instances as to place a
strip of paper over Hw cork and fasten to the neck
or the bottle, on which ls a vignette, and other?
wise printed to resemble the general appearance
or our proprietary U. S. Revenue stamp, but upon
Inspection will disclose the absence or the figure
"4," aud the words ".'our cents," also "United
