-The latest East Indian papers teem with
accounts of Lord Mayo's fuueral at Calcutta.
The whole city, literally, was in atteadance]
and the procession contained not only ali the
Civil officers but also all the military, from far
and near. The utmost grief was manifested
by the whole assemblage. The coffin was on
a gun-carriage, drawn by twelve horses, and
covered wilh the Union Jack. As it ap
preached the Maida?, or park, where the-mul
tltude had gathered in the greatest numbers,
every head waa reverentially uncovered; the
Blow, mournful Btralns of the bands mingled
with the boom ol the minute guns; the sailors on
the tops ol the vessels stood cap in hand; the
crowds, native and European, outside the en?
closure seemed like people spell-bound, while
the vast procession tell silently into the allotted
piaces. The greatest sympathy was univers?
ally shown for the late Viceroy's little Bon,
aged seven years, who followed the hoarse as
one ot the chief mourners. Addresses of con?
dolence have been sent to Lady Mayo irom all
public bodies, not merely in Calcutta, but
throughout Iodla. The Maharajahs Sclodia
and Jeypore, among otherp, telegraphed their
sympathy, immediately, and Scindla counter?
manded hlB Intended camp of exercise. The
King of Oude ordered his household into
mourning; the Mahomedan and Hindoo festi?
vals were entirely suspended; and the Brah?
mas decreed a fast, and prayed for the repose
of the dead, and tor a blessing on his family.
The County Auditor gives notice that he
is preparing bis list of delinquent taxes for
the years 1868, 1869, 1870 and 1871, and
urges those persons who desire to avoid the
penalties imposed by the tax laws to pay
their arrears at once. We have no reason
to suppose that this notice, here or else?
where, is an empty threat. The General
Assembly, at its last session, increased the
stringency of the general tax law. Amongst
other amendments were the3e: The redac?
tion of the period within which real estate
sold for taxes may be redeemed, to thirty
days, instead of one year, without penalty,
and to ninety days, instead of two years,
with a penalty ol fifty per cent ; a provision
that the County Auditor be required, on be?
half of the State, to warrant the titles to all
lands sold for delinquent taxes; that the
State shall become the owner of all delin?
quent lands offered for sale upon which the
amount bid is not equal to the taxes and ex?
penses; that if any purchaser does not pay
forthwith the amount of his bid the lands
shall be immediately resold, as If no previ?
ous Bale of them bad taken place. Bat the
severest section in the whole law is that
which relates to the delinquent laxes of
1868-1871, which amount, we believe, to
abont eleven hundred thousand dollars.
The section is as follows :
"SEC. 4. That all lands and real eslate with?
in this State, whereupon, or in respect whereof,
any sum of money remains due or payable
after the sale provided for In section 15, chap?
ter 13, title 3, of general statutes, or which are
Kable to be sold lor, or on account ol. any tux
laid by or under the authority of this State,
for State or county purposes, In accordance
with the provisions of either of the several
acts, for the purpose of asses-log and levying
taxes for the support of the government ol the
State, and ot the several counties thereof,
parsed ID the years 1868, 1869, 1870 and
1871, shall be exposed to sale and sold for Hie
payment of such taxes, and all penalties, costs
and charges thereon accrued, on the ?rst Mon?
day in June, 1872. and from day to day there
ifter, Sundays only excepted, until the whole
thereof shatt te sold, at the place or places,
on tue terms und In the manner hereinalter
provided; such sale shall be by the county
treasurer of each county, al the county seai.
who shall exp.ise and offer ihe said lands nt
public pale, to be sold and conveyed in fee sim?
ple without the right of redemption for the pay?
ment thereof. Ii no person shall, at said sale,
offer to purchase or take a less quantity of the I
lands so charged and offered man the whole i
thereol, at, and for the amount so charged, for
the l axes, penal lies, costs and charges, the said
county treasurer shall declare that ihe Stale is
the purchaser thereof, at and for the amount
so charged, and thereupon the Stale shall be?
come Invested In fee B.mple with the lille to
Baid landa, and ih? appurtf nances, and all the
ImDrovemenlB thereon. If at said sale any
per.-on shall pub icly offer to take a less por?
tion than the whole of said lands, for ihe said
laxes, penal:les, costs and charges, Iben the
said lands sha 1 be sold to such pet son as c)m 1
offer to take the smallest portion thereof, and
pay the same; and, upon ute payment of the
amount so due io ?be county treasurer, Faid
officer shaii execute and deliver to Ibe said
purchaser a certificate setting forth ibe fact
of such purchase, and the payment of the
amount bid. and thereupon the said purchaser
shall be entitled to the grant from the Slate of
the undivided right, title or Interest, in fte
simple, loithout redemption, in and to all the
lands as Bold, and alt lands belonging to any
person or persons, or corporation?, against
whom such tax was levied and assessed, equal
to the proportion which the amount bid holds
to the whole of said lands BO purchased, and
the purchaser shall be entitled to demand par?
tition thereof according to law, and on such
partition the Bald purchaser shall be entitled
to a proportional share and interest in all im
I pro vernen ts thereon. In addition lo the sums
! now assessed and chargeable upon said lands,
there shall be added at the time of said sale
five per centum of the amount of said taxes,
penalties, costs and charges; which said sum
is hereby appropriated for the payment of the
expenses ot said sale and the collection of the
moneys thereon. One-half of one per cent, to
be for the use of the county, and the balance
to be puid into the State treasury. If any per?
son to whom such lands shalt be struck off
shall fall forthwith to pay the amount bid
therefor, Bald Counly Treasurer shall imme?
diately expose and offer such lands for resale as
if no such previous sale had taken place. The
County Treasurer t-hall make weekly remit?
tances of all lunds received, according to the
provisions ol this act, to the S:ate Treasurer,
and shall forward monthly accounts for said
funds to the State Treasurer."
We do not see any way of escaping from
the penalties contained in this section. All
real estate, upon which any State or County
tax for 1868, 1869, 1870 and 1871 remains
unpaid, will be sold at public outcry on the
first Monday in June. We have no reason
to believe that there will be, or cao be, any
remission of penalty or postponement of
sale. The State authorities are resolved to
enforce the payment of the arrears, and
one of their arguments is, that they will not
levy L 1Jitional taxes upon the citizens who
. have paid regularly, in order to provide for
the deficiency caused by the tardiness of
those who have not paid at all. We only
hope that every citizen will retain his tax
receipt, as a constant and cogent reminder
that a purification of the government, in
the interest of honesty and economy, is in?
dispensable to the very life of this Common?
wealth. High as the ti xes are, they must
be far less than the iotriosic value of the
property which is taxed, and the only choica
now is between paying the taxes and losing
the property. This is the point to which
tho tax question i3 narrowed; just as the
only point for the conservative voters to
consider next October is, how to obtain au
impartial and upright government which
will reduce taxation, as far as practicable,
and see that the State obtains the full worth
of eVery dollar which is spent
The Orphan's Home,
We are requested to lay before the public
the objects and claims of the Orphan Home
of South Carolina, at Spartanburg Court?
house, in this State.
The institution is not expected to open
before next October; but applications for
admission may bo sent to Mr. R. C. Oliverat
Spartanburg. No sectarian distinction is
made in receiving orphans. These, howev?
er, mu3t be born in lawful wedlock, should
have lost both parents, and should be in
needy circumstances. Orphans who have
th"se quah?calions will be received from
any section of the State, without regard to
the religious belief of their parents or tb the
religion of the persons through whom appli?
cation may be made. It is also stated that
the orphan children of Free Masons and Odd
Fellows will have an equal chance of admis?
sion with others.
The object of the Orphan Home is the
physical, mental and moral development of
the children, and the agent and bis assist?
ant, Rev. J. H. C. McKinney, are hopeful
of abundant E access. Tbey inform us that a
few liberal minded men united their contri?
butions, purchased a plantation and mansion
near Atlanta, and gave it to the Orphan's
Home of Georgia, And, they ask, why can
not as much be done in our own State ?
A Complete Vindication.
In these days committees of inves ligation
are rife. Charges of corruption are constantly
brought against men in high places, and of
gross mismanagement on the part ol corpo?
rate bodies ef high Btandlng. They are so
often true, that when such accusations,
whether insinuated or openly made, are boldly
met and refuted, it ia both fair and'Just that
those whose character has been aspersed, or
whose Integrity has been called In question,
should have ihe evidences of their vindication
laid before the public.
The Equitable Life Assurance Society, whose
principal office Is in New York, bas done what
every corporation ought to do which ls the
depository of an immense trust, and ls depend?
ent on popular confidence for the prosperity
of its business. Statements having been made
In one of the Sunday papers of New York,
which, if true, would not only have seriously
affected the good standing cf the Equitable,
but, by their reflex action, would cast suspi?
cion on the whole system of Life Insurance,
the directors promptly decided to lay their
affairs before a committee composed of the
Insurance Commissioner of Massachusetts,
Professor Dwight, and a number of other gen?
tlemen, some of whom are policy-holders, and
others well-known merchants. The report of j
this committee, which we give elsewhere, rep?
resents the company to be not only free from
all taint of mismanagement, but in reality (as
stated by them) to be "most faithfully and
"successfully managed." Every charge made
against the Equitable has been taken seriatim
and emphatically denied ; Its business, though
enormous, has been conducted, lt ls declared,
with care and circumspection, Its assets care?
fully invested and no undue expense Incurred.
Finally, the committee say that they "take
"great pleasure in bearing this unanimous
"testimony to the faithful and successlul man?
agement, by the trustees and officers of the
"society, of the great trust reposed In them."
We have rarely seen a more complete vindica,
