-Colored persona in the Northern States arc
Already sending ou complaints to Washington
that they have not seen a?owed to vote In town
elections since the Fifteenth amendment was rati?
fied. The reason generally assigned by officers
who conduct the elections is that they take an
oath to obey the State laws relating to suffrage;
that although these are rendered nugatory by the
amendment, they have no official notice or the
fact through the Governor or the State. A memo?
rial was presented to the Senate the other day
trom 137 colored men or Cinciunaii. Ohio, willi
every sighature in thc same handwriting, repre?
senting that they were prevented from voting at
an election just held: i hat it portions or the wards
offlci ; whose duty lt was to hold the election re?
fused to serve, and their places were supplied by
persons irresponsible in any way for injuries that
might bc Indicted on them. Under the second
section or the Fifteenth amendment Congress can
pass appropriate legislation enforcing colored
suffrage, and this memorial wa3 referred for that
purpose to the Judiciary Committee.
?.Stand and Deliver:"
The dominant party is in serious danger
of foundering under the weight or thc in?
come tax, which Mr. Boutwell persistently
demands, and fur wlio3e re-establishment in
some form Mr. Sherman threatens to bring
in a bill.
The tax is unpopular, and oven odious, in
all parts of the country. Petitions for its
abrogation have been poured in from every
quarter. Our whole people agree with Mr.
Bright ;n his opinion of this kind of tax-"it
"is hateful beyond all ochers, because it is
'.unjust beyond all others." Many aman
who receives a thousand dollars per year
makes more and saves more than olhors
who receive double that amount. Yet the
government wrenches from a city clerk, who
can barely live and feed and clothe Iiis fami?
ly, fifty dollars a year; while a "canny
"countryman who thrives and saves from a
"smaller amount goes scot free."
The income tax is odiously inquisitive. It
gives the assessor the right to examine, if he
sccs fit, books and private papers. But it
allows him to sec only one side of those
books. It ignores the citizen's necessary
expenses. It ignores his debts. It ignores
his family. It simply says to him: Sir, you
have had so much money in your hands
this year; the government demands such
and such a proportion. You may not have
a cent left of what you received. You may
not be able to save a cent, month by month
or year by year. You may have debts and
expenses upon you that arc crushing out
your lite. No matter ! The government
wants $100,000,000 of extra capital every
year, and you must pay your part or bo sold
But what adds to the monstrous injustice
of this tax is the fact that it was accepted by
thc people as a necessity arising from a
slate of war, and that the government, by
the bill imposing it, pledged itself that it
should only cover the incomes of 18C9. Jt
is a breach of the public faith to extend it
any longer. It is no longer needed. The
war is over. The credit of the government
Im been re-established. The treasury is
rall What occasion i3 there for a war tax
now ? What occasion for sucli a tax-the
most inquisitorial, lite most unequal, the
most oppressive that can be devised ?
And further, as we have had occasion to
show in a previous issue of THE NEW?,
the tax itself is an infraction of thc consti?
tution-the instrument from which Congrc3s
derive? the power of taxation. It is a direct j
tax, and a burden ol this sort must bo ap?
portioned, as tlic income tax cannot be, ac?
cording to thc population of thc States. A
direct tax must be levied upon States, not
as haring so much money, but as having so
much people. That this regulation would
produce unjust discrimination in some in?
stances is clear enough; but iri3 equally
idear that it would bo infinitely better than
the system that now prevails.
For our part we almost consent to surren?
der our o?ijoclions to the in como tax when
we contemplate its result in the Connecticut
elections. The Shermans and Drakes of
Congress cannot play their m id antics for?
ever. Tho people are willing to sustain tho
government in the discharge of its legiti?
mate functions. Tlicy have not yet recov?
ered from the sentimental extravagance
which, ignoring st ttcm.inship and peaceful
councils, squandered so much blood and
treasure for th3 maintenance of thc integri?
ty of the republic. But they will not con?

most unscrupulous political gamblers that

always money. And they begin to say, let

THE birching of young ladies in boarding
schools is still a subject for detailed discus?
sion in the English magazines, as will be
seen by extracts we publish elsewhere. The
exposure to which these English girls sub?
mit with such an humble grace, would of
itself be considered au outrage upou our
American daughters, and yet we are contin?
ually told that tho class which these birched
young ladies represent does not yield inmod?

GREAT REDUCTION IN PRICES.
QUALITY STILL FURTHER IMPROVED.
Wc beg leave respectfully to call the attention
or thc public to dur Superior Flavoring Extr?fto.
AK ten years have now elapsed since we first in?
troduced them lo the notice of the American pub?
lic, wo deem lt unnecessary at present to enter
Imo a lengthy description of their merits, kc
There ls hardly a city or town or any note in the
country into which they have not found their
wny. Thc reason of this widespread popularity
and dnlly Increasing demand is owing entirely to
their peelina1 ?*-eellence and Intrinsic worth.
Being doterai? to make Hiern thc Standard Ex?
tracts or the day, we have still further improved
their quality, and now wc firmly sud honestly be?
lieve that they stand without a rival. Our Vanilla
Rx trac, cannot be surpassed for richness and
delicacy of flavor. His a strictly pure and high?
ly concentrated Extract of Vanilla Beans. In
short, we think lt thc best that is made, at least,
this ls i he decision of thc best Judges tu the coun?
try. We don't pretend to compete in price with
many of thc so-called Flavoring Extracts of the
day, which are really, but worthless compounds,
undeserving of the name.
For quality and style, we defy competition.
