STAMPS ON CONVEYANCES, BONDS,
NOTES, ?fcc.-The following extract
from a recent letter of the Commis?
sioner of Internal Revenue contains
useful and important information:
OFFICE OF INTERNAL REVENUE,
WASHINGTON, Jan. 30, 1866.
SIR: Your letter of the 22d instant
to the "Proprietors of the Intelli?
gencer," has been referred to this
office. I reply that the law requiring
stamps upon conveyances, bonds,
notes, &c, took effect October 2,
1862, and that no stamps are neces- i
sary upon instruments issued prior to
A bond for the payment of money
?3 subject to stamp duty at the rate of
five cents for each $100, or fractional
part thereof, as "writien or printed
evidence of an amount of money to
be paid on demand or at a time desig?
nated ;" a personal bond, given as se?
curity for the payment of any definite
or certain sum of money, exceeding
$100, and not exceeding $500, is sub?
ject to a stamp duty of fifty cents,
and to fifty Cv .os additional for each
additional $500, or fractional part
An instrument subject to stamp
duty, but issued and used, unstamped,
prior to August 1, 1864, may be made
valid by stamping it as required by
section 163 of the Act of June 30,
1864; if issued since that date, the
case falls under section 158 of said
Act, as amended by the Act of March
3, 1865. Very respectfully,
D. C. WHITMAN,
TRIAL OF MR. DAVIS.-We feel
warranted in stating to the public
that the revelations of the last ten
days will justify us in announcing
now that the Government has decided
that Jefferson Davis shall be tried for
treason and other high crimes before
a military commission. The signifi?
cant summoning to Washington,
therefore, of such distinguished
Generals as Sherman, Sheridan and
Meade, and the recent arrival there of
Burton N. Harrison, who was the
private secretary of Davis during the
rebellion, may now be understood.
The pirate Semmes is also soon to
be tried by a naval commission at the
Capitol.-Wilkes' Spirit of Ute Times.
"Perlcy" telegraphs from Washing?
ton as follows:
Senator Howard spoke at length
to-day in favor of his resolution re?
commending the trial of Jefferson
Davis and C. C. Clay for complicity
in the assassination of President Lin?
coln. It is understood that Judge
Advocate General Holt has been
placed in possession of important evi?
dence sustaining this charge, since the
execution of the other conspirators.
THE NEGRO CONVENTION.-The se?
cession of Fred. Douglass aud others
from this convention is the burthen
of a long letter in Monday's Chronicle.
It appears that the Virginia negroes
had one white delegate; that they aro
not clearly opposed to being settled
in a colony of their own, somewhere
in the South; and that they are dis?
posed to consider themselves fit rulers
for their colored brethren. None of
these things suited Fred, and the rest.
Consequence-secession and the Vir?
ginia negr?es lef?\to themselves.
ALL, FOR Two CKNTS.-The Trea?
sury Department, in settling a balance
of two cents due to Erastus Foote,
sent a draft to him worded and num?
bered as ?0II0W8 :
"Draft 2,950 on Treasury warrant,
Treasury of the United States. No.
1,954. Washington, January 8,1866.
At sight, pay to Erastus Foote, Col?
lector and Disbursing Agent, or order,
two cents. F. E. Spinner, Treasurer
of United States. Recorded Janu?
ary 8, 1866. S. B. Colby, Register
of the Treasury, Assistant Treasury
United States* Boston, Massachu?
setts." On this important document,
there were seven signatures, and all
foi; two cents. The gentleman who
owned the draft was offered a dollar
for it this morning, but said he would
not sell it for five dollars.
[Boston Traveler, ld.
FREEDMEN.-We have taken es?
pecial pains to inquire, and have been
informed that the freedmen through?
out thc District are entering into and
making contracts very readily for the
year; and, too, are working a* as?
siduously as could be expected of
them. We know this, that the signs
are in their favor; for Ave have much
fewer idlers and wood-choppers about,
the streets than formerly; and the
pig-styes and chicken-roosts do not
complain as they have been wont to
do. The masses of them seem to have
some faint idea of their real condition,
and are acting accordingly, blank
forms of contracts being in demand.
It is said that if the bill for giving
Gen. Grant the rank of full General
becomes a law, it will be followed by
another bill conferring the rank of
Lieutenant-General upou Sherman
and Sheridan. Admiral Farragut will
likely be made a full Admiral, the
Vice-Admiral in the navy being equal
to the grade of Lieutenant-General
' in the army.
I About 1,00!) tons of shot and shell,
thrown into the forts at the mouth of
Cape Fear River (below Wilmington)
by the navy, during the bombard?
ment under Admiral Porter, have been
collected, and will be sold at auction,
February 15th, for the benefit of the
of the Government.
