Charge. No more useful occupatiou could be
found for a thousanrt-consnlar agents than tim?

-It will be remembered that last summer
the ice companies ol New York bought up the

short weights. The largest sufferers were the

ers and bluchers. These organized the Con?
sumers' Ice Company, and during the pusl
Winter have built aud lilied with the best
quality of ice the largest ice houses ever
erected in the count ry." The crop hus been
large, t he ice houses along ihe Hudson alone
containing upwards of 1,250,000 lons. Tue

quantities, aud to families 35 or 40 cents per
week, receiving fifteen pounds per day, und
double ihe quantity on Saturday These a e
maximum prices, the design being tu realize
a profit i<l $1 per ton, and uo more. The large
consumers above indicated have bound ihem
selves to light the monopolists, aud claim
that they are entitled to popular support.
-In his early manhood, General Molike
served under the Sultan Mahmoud. When a
Beuten int in Hie Prussian service he was no- j
ted for a real, or an affected, cynicism toward |
the fair sex. Biographers stale that he pur?
sued this course lu order not to become loo
much interested in any one woman, as he did
not choose to ve.ature upon matrimony with
nothing but the pay of a lieutenant. Alter he
became a general, however, he married a lady
much younger than himself, the stepdaughter
of his sister. Hin young wile accommodated
herself entirely to Ids mode of lile, writing war
dispatched at hh; dictation, and riding by his
side as a cavalry officer. But about two years
ago she became suddenly lil" from exposure
during one of i hese rides, and died in conse?
quence. Von Moltke ls now unmarried and
childless. Berlin gossip is, however, busy
with his-naine in connection with matrimony,
notwithstanding his advanced age, and is.
constantly announcing his betrothal to some
body. During the war the pestilent spirit ol
talk weni so far is to .iay that a lady to whom
he was engaged was in Paris, which account?
ed for the length ol the siege. In other
words; Vein Moltke, with 800,000 raerr at his
back, did not bulge a foot in four.months in
an effort to get at his lady-love, whom cir?
cumstances had shut up in Paris.
Ou - Tax Systems.
Last year tie Assembly of the State of
New York authorised t*e Governor of the
State to appoint, three suitable persons to re?
vise the laws fo: the assessment and collec?
tion of taxes. Thereupon a remarkable,
event occurred--the Governor appointed aa
one of tho thre? the most suitable person for
the position to be found in the United States,
viz: Mr. Daniel A Wells, whilom Commis?
sioner of the United States Revenue, and
now victim of tae uurepublican honesty and
ability with whbh he performed the duties of
that office. Mr. Wells has lately made to
the Assembly ol* New York a report, which,
whether we regard the facts stated, the dis?
cussions upon them, or the concisions pre?
sented, is of the highest interest and impor?
tance. We tnuice, therefore, no apology for
laying before our readers a synopsis of thi3
In the Stale of New York, taxation ha3 in
the last ten years advanced from twenty
millions to fifty millions; in Massachusetts,
from seven to twenty-one millions; in Ohio,
from eleven to twenty-two million.?. Taxa?
tion is heavier in Massachusetts than in aoy
civilized community in the world. The tax?
ation it. New York is SH 55 per capita, in
Massachusetts SI i 35, in Ohio $8 72, and in
Vermont S5 2?. The aggregate per capita
taxatiou in the United States is on one cal?
culation $21 83, and on another $16 09, the
last figures representing, probably, the min?
imum, which is greater than any modern na?
tion has borne continuously in a time of
In the State of New York the rate of the
aggregate taxes of the State, in 1869, was
2 43,. in Massachusetts 3.33, in the City of
New York 2.27, in Rochester 6.70, in Bos?
ton 1.53. lu Eogland it was 3.87 per capita.
The tax systems in the United States, be
si .es being defective in imposiog burdens
ou production, are further so in respect to
the valuation of property, real and personal.
In New York i he State tax is apportioned
among the counties on the basis ol their re?
spective valuations of real estate, and tho
natural consequence follows that the valua?
tions do not represent the values. lu some
counties tho real estate is reported at 20 per
centum of iU3 real value; in the majority of
counties ut fr?.rn 25 to 35 per cent, of the
real value, and in the cities possibly at 60
per cent., which last rate is the maximum.
The only lauds correctly valued are those of
The valuation of personal property is still
more irregular. A careful study.of the nature
aud classification of property has confirmed
n fptAiM-i- h -.-mr-?--, i? ? -??.CTCUilJ
''the market value of the aggregate of land
"and that of the aggregate of productive
"capital aro equal;" aod that further, tn
highly civilized aud densely populated .-tates
the aggregates of property, usually classed
ander the two heads "real" and "personal,"
are either equt.l or closely approximate to
each other in actual value. Accept this lest,
aud arguing from the known value of real
estate, the conclusion is inevitable that a
large portion of the personal property of
every State entirely eludes taxation. In
Massachusetts mid Connecticut, all personal
property is hy the terms of the law subject
io taxation, ai d the tux act has ju those
?tuiee be?n"mo3tsuc'c^roily-enforced. Yet,
in the former State, it is believed that full 'i
oue-thiid, and ai the latter forty percent, of I
tiio personal property eludes taxatiou. The '
valuation of personal property in New York 1
is a mere semblance.
In Massachusetts, in the year 1869-1870,
the personal property was valued at five hun- i
dred and threw millions, or (3 45 per capita;
of Ohio at four hundred ami sixty millions,
or $1 89 per capita; and New York at four
hundred and thirty-four millions, or $1 00
per capita. An approximate vulualion of
the personal property of New York ou inde?
pendent data gives a total of a billion and
a baif, and otter estimates reach a larger
amount. Tlie inadequacy of the ussessed
value is made still plainer by a statement
made in tho Sew York Convention, by a
member, who said that he could name thirty
men whose aggregate wealth exceeded ibu
whole assessed value of the personal proper?
ly oj the State. The conclusion is that only
one-liftli of the personal property in the
Slate is subjected lo taxation. What, then,
is the remedy fo- this great evil? We are
interested in the answer to the question, for
change utiuies and-de nob's fabula narra
The \e-.T Eugene Aram?
The case o! the philological murderer,
Rullnfl, who, ?is th? telegraph tells us, yes?
terday expiated his crimed upon the gallows,
w tr, indeed, an extraordinary one. But
sumo of the newspapers assume that this is
the only instance on record where a devoted
student, with considerable pretensions to
learning, has committed u capital crime and
suffered the penalty thereof. They must
surely have forgotten ihe melancholy hero of
Bulwt r's romance and Tom Hood's poem,
who was really a far more intellectual, as
well as a more interesting, character than
the man whom the Tribune wanted pardon?
ed in order that he may finish his treatise
Eugene Aram was boru at. Ramsglli, in
Yorkshire, in 1704. His lather wa? a gardener
In straitened circumstances, ami could' afford
to give him but limned educational advan?
tages: but he learned eagerly aud rapidly, pur?
suing his Studie* even while engaged iu man?
ual labor. He married early, and settled first
at Netherdale, and afterwards ut Knuvesbo
rough. us a schoolmaster. During his resi?
dence at the latter place, in 1745, he had an
Intimate friend named Daniel Clarke, a shoe
maker by trade. This Clarke bought a quan?
tity ol goods on credit in the year above
mentioned, and soon afterward suddenly
and mysteriously disappeared. Aram was
suspeoted, not of murdering Clarke, but
of assisting him to swindle his creditors ;
his premises were searched, some of the
goods found, and he himself was tried, but
acquitted for lack of evidence. Here the mat?
ter dropped; the belief being that the missing
man had fled the country to avoid paying his
debts. Aram leit his family at Knavesborough
and went to London, and thence to other
parts of Bogland, still following his profes?
sion of schoolmaster. He acquired a good
knowledge of botany, heraldry, the Chaldee,
Arabic, Welsh and Irish languages, and was
engaged In the preparation of a great etymol?
ogical work called "A Comparative Lexicon
of the Engllsb, Latin, Greek, Hebrew and
Celtic Languages''-when one c'ark, miBty
morning, two officers moved away from Lynn
Academy in Norfolk.
"And Eugene Aram walked between,
Wiih gyves upon hts wrists."
This was in 1759, fourteen years after the
disappearance of Clarke, and the circumstances
which led to Aram's second arrest were these :
A skeleton had been accidentally discovered
near Knavesborough, and the community,
for Borne reason, inclined to think that it be?
longed to the departed shoemaker. Aram's
wire had beeD heard to say that her hus?
band and a man named Houseman knew mor<*|
about Clarke's affairs than they cared to tell,
and the latter was accordingly confronted
with ttK" resurrected bones and accused of the
murder. He denied that they belonged lo
Clarke, but Anally contessed that he had
seen Aram and one Terry, kill Clarke, and
could show where the remains were burled.
Another skeleton was dug up, which House?
man pronounced to be that ot the missing
man, and Aram was arrested as we have de?
scribed. His trial began at York. August 3,
1759, and he conducted Iiis own defence in a
most masterly manner, attacking with won?
derful skill and erudition the doctrine of cir?
cumstantial evidence. But he failed to con?
vince the jury ol" his innocence and was con
demned to death. While under sentence he
acknowledged his crime; wrote an apology for
suicide, and then tried to pul his theory into
practical operation, but did not succeed, and
was executed three days afterward.
