InvWialHlcN lu (hr ll?'venue Liftwa.
Among the Washington iteniB?j>ub
- Dabed iniVruesday's issue of theP??;
?rix, were noticed some decision* of
j Conitmaaioiier et-- Infceraai Bm*
venue,-tfhioh deserve some notice, aa
bein? in bur opini?n, unequal and
unjust. " ;
ORO of these decisions is, that pro?
m?t?, br income, rather, derived from
stocks pr otKer ?astable securities
will be regarded as 'fisted incomes.
aflrya ia manifestly unjust, the income
* from such a source being precarious,
- ?aid, in no sense, can be regarded as
fixed. The income from a similar in?
vestment in real estate, bonds, 'lots,
houses, ?ko., are "fixed," and being,
as must bo assumed, generally in?
sured and protected, are fairly liable
to a fixed rate of taxation as perma
<v nent incomes. The rentals of Toni
estates, in a series of years, fluctu?
ates very little, -while the income from
other sources is liable, by any revul?
sion in politics or trade, to become ?
n o tight-nothing.
Bnt the second decision, to which
we particularly desire to call atten?
tion, is that of taxing "salaries" as
income from business. This is the
^inost onerous tax that could be in?
flicted on the mass of the people. As
we understand it, the term "salaries"
embraces wages for labor of all kinds,
whether for clerical duties or the
weekly pay of journeymen iu any
' trade, craft or calling. Tho injustice
of this must be apparent. There is
not, in the whole country, a salaried
man (and especially is this true at the
present time of depreciated remune?
ration and high prices for all the ne?
cessaries of life,) who receives more
for his labor than is barely sufficient
to provide food and raiment for his
family. The employer pleads the
stringency of the money market and
the dull state of business as his justi?
fication for reducing salaries to the
starving point, while the poor sala?
ried drudge has to pay from fifty to
one hundred per cent higher for
every article he consumes than what
he hail to pay when salaries were
.equally as high ; iu fact, higher than
they are at present.
Is not a tax on such a slender in -
c?mo a bnrden that is unequal coin
pared to that which is derived from
business? The merchant makes, we
say, for the sake of illustration, in a
small business, $1*500; the indus?
trious clerk or toiling mechanic
makes the same amount; the former
has his stock always on hand upon
which he is trading; the latter's
1 'stock" may be annihilated by sick?
ness or lack of employment. The
former buys his supplies at whole?
sale or reduced prices; the latter must
pay for the same that price, with the
ret? lier's profits added.
E in addition to this inequality,
there remains another consideration :
to show that this tax is unequal. The !
only guarantee the clerk or mechanic j
has for support, should he be stricken
with illness, is his ability to save a
slender surplus to lay by, as the or?
dinary saying is, "for a rainy day."
But on his narrow income this tax
is inflicted, and swallows up that
which might be otherwise laid aside
tor the contingencies of want of em?
ployment or sickness. In short, such
a principle of taxation is wrong, and
bears that inequality on its face which
tends to make the rich richer and the
poor poorer- an unfortunate admi?
nistration of the laws for thc people
of any country.
Thc whole principle of ta\iug in?
dustry and labor is based upon erro?
neous premises, and is cruel, unjust
and oppressive. "While the landed
proprietor can receive and enjoy his
income and lead an idle life, pays his
medicum of taxes, tho salaried man,
the artizan and mechanic, must pay
the inevitable tax, while, at the same
time, he is daily contributing, by the
sweat of his brow, to the wealth and
prosperity of the conni.ry, because he
manfully does his part in developing
her resources. Any measure which
tends to cripple these productive ener?
gies and efforts is inimical to the best
interests of the general community
and the wealth of the country.
Eight or ten millions of logs are
blocked up on the Allegash River, in
?Maine, for lack of water, and will
probably not be got out this year.
What a pity the poor deluged peo?
ple of Mississippi and Louisiana
could not transfer their surplus to the
bed of the Allegash stream.
1 Tine Cotto? T^x^?t?r?<??**.?^.rirt*-'
We see it stated in ^rexchafige*
that the people of New JS?gland, es
penally of Boston, jirte/ioud and vio?
lent iu their oppodtion to the pro"/
po^d cotton tax. - They-?ny it will
discourage the growth of the staple
%pc<n whick ?they ate much more de?
pendent for bread than are the South*
ern people. This is ?ll true; the
pocket nerve has been agitated, and
radical legislation on the subjeet will
have to take a step backward.
But the most amusing exhibition
of alarm on this subject comes from
those whom the Tribune calls the
Northern cotton planters, now ope?
rating on plantations in tho South.
A telegram informs us that Brig,
?on. A. Ti. Gurney, now at Selma,
Alabama, has sent to Washington a
remonstrance against tho tax, signed
by the Union officers and soldiers en?
gaged in planting in that State.
They say that cotton cannot be raised
at a profit under the weight of such a
tax. Well, if these officers-most of
them, we presume, attached to that
delectable institution, tho "Freed?
men's Bureau," with its superior ad?
vantages of procuring freed labor at
a cheap race-advantages which are,
in tho majority of cases, denied to
the Southern planters-cannot culti?
vate cotton with any profit under the
proposed tax, what is to become of
those to the manor born who are try?
ing, with broken down mules and
patched up plows and wagons, to
raise it on their wasted and impo?
verished plantations? But the evils
of rampant legislation are thus com?
ing home to roost. So be it.
But the capstone of the argument?
used by these official Northern cot?
ton planters, as specified in the tele?
gram r-eferred to, is that, if Congress
levy this tax, il will tlriee out 50,(XX
Northern emigrants, noir there, ano
prevent Northern emigration, with
out which these loyal cotton planten
say the Southern States cannot be parget
Well, we must confess that tin
dose of the Bureau, as aualyzed bj
Drs. Gens. Steedman and Fullertoi
is sufficiently powerful to ??urge tin
"Southern States of anything obnox
ions to their social and political well
being, but wi; imagine we see sign
of the medicine being disposed of
a different operation. But, seriously
are these men crazy, or are they de
termiued in persisting that the South
ern people are not acting in goot
faith towards the Government the;
have pledged themselves, now am
hereafter, to sapport, simply for thei
own emolument? It is wrong, per
niciously wrong, thus to misreprc
sent the people of the South. Ther
is not an intelligent and candil
United States officer, now at the Soutl
on duty, or who may have visited il
from General Grant down, but wh
knows such statemerts must be mad
from interested motives, and nx*e no
bused upon the truth. These repr?
seututions, however, may have th
effect desired-to stop ultra legislatio
as regards this cotton tax.
Foo WING vp THE REMAINS OF TH
CONFEDERATE DEAD.-While th
noble and benevolent women of th
South, are engaged in strewin
flowers over the graves of the Cor
federate soldiers who fell during th
war, the negroes are busily employe
in plowing np tho bodies of "th
brave Confederates who fell upon th
battle-field of Franklin ! The Buffal
(New York) Courier, in noticing th:
fiendish atrocious barbarism, sayi
"The Freedmen's Bureau, preside
over by a radical, whose pretension
to extra jue ty have been used t
throw a cloak of respectability ovt
the iniquitous Bureau, has turnee
with fiendish maliciousness, th
battle-field of Franklin, Tennessee
where thousands of Confederate den
from every quarter of the South la
buried in shallow ditches-over t
tho negroes of the Freedmen
Bureau. The ground is being plowc
up, and the bodies of the dead ii
humanly disinterred and abuse*
Such brutal vandalism should 1
rebuked bj' the people of tho Nort
in somo public manner, or they wi
forever be disgraced in the eyes ?
the civilized world.''
In contrariety to tin; above, tl
Augusta Cons, :tioiuilisl learns from
gentleman of that city that the Co
federate dead who fell in the thr
engagements about Franklin ha
been carefully re-interred in the nf
cemetery near that place, to the sn
dening number of 1,511.
NEOKO MUTINEERS. -The 57th rej
ment negro troops mutinied lately
Fort Smith, Arkansas, and refused
start for New Mexico. They wc
surrounded and disarmed by the
(white) cavalry, and sixty of the riu
leaders put under guard for trial.
Tnt* President's Or g on on the Final
We made some extracts on Tues?
day from the final report of the Re?
construction Committee; with run?
ning comments thereon. The Wash?
ington Republican, the acknowledged
exponent of the President's views
and opinions, has ? trenchant criti?
cism on the reporti from which we
make one or two extracts :
'This Government has boen a
monstrous engine of wrong and usur?
pation; this war has been a crime of
unparalleled atrocity and infamy ; and
every American soldier has been a
murderer of his fellowman in fact
and intent, unless every Amerioan
State is an integral part of this
Union, and every person born and
residing in them is an American citi?
zen. Under the great charter, of tl ie
Constitution, our armies went upon
the territory where revolt existed to
make the rebellious citizens submit
to the laws, and enable the States
disturbed by individual insurgents to
resume their functions and exercise
their rights, or else the national pre?
sence there was unjustifiable, and
eacli mon who upheld the flag on that
soil was an invader. Yet this astute
oommittoe does not consider the de?
bute on this question 'necessary.' lt
dared not face the issue; for to admit
that the eleven States were over out
of this Union would be to confess
that either their act of seccssiim was
legal, or their act of resistance suc?
As to the slanders on the people of
the South, and the denial of their
fidelity to their obligations to thc
Government contained in the report
from which we quoted "and comment?
ed on, the Republican is very severe.
"The report, iu its opiuiou of the
loyalty of the Southern people ami
its canvass of Southern affairs, seems
to have sunk all respect for truth and
ali claim to statesmanship. Accord?
ing to it, there is throughout the
South 'an evidence of an intense hos?
tility to the Federal Union.' We
pronounce this false. The organic
law of every Southern State recog?
nizing its fealty to the National Go?
vernment, the almost universal quiet
and order of the Southern populace,
the unexceptionable teaching of the
Southern press and pulpit, which now
inculcates obedience to the laws, the
example of the conspicuous civil and
military leaders, all stamp this state?
ment of the committee without foun?
dation and without excuse. We also
deu3r tlie right to interpret dislike to
the thirty-ninth Congress and its dis?
organizing influences, whether at the
South or North, as 'an evidence of
hostility to the Federal Government'
It is love and revereuce to tho Go?
vernment that causes us at least tobe
hostile to Congress."
This is the truth fitly spoken, and
shows np the rump Congress in its
true but offensive and repollan i co?
IV o Backer?-\o Precedent*.
The radicals have no backers,
among all the statesmen, lawyers 01
writers on national law to sustain
them in their present attitude of hos?
tility to those whom they please tc
call former "rebels." Montesquieu,
one of the ablest of the French wri?
ters on these topics, says:
"As soon asa Republic hits com?
passed the destruction of those who
wanted to subvert it, there should be
an end of terrors, punishments, and
oven of rewards. Great punishments,
and, consequently, great changes,
cannot take place without investing
some citizens with an exorbitant
power. It is. therefore, advisable in
this case to exceed in lenity, rathol
than in severity; to banish but few,
rather than many; and to leave them
their estates, instead of making n
vast number <?f confiscations. Undei
a pretence of avenging the Republic's
cause the avengers would establish
tyranny. The business is not to de?
stroy the rebels, but the rebellion.
They ought to return as quickly m
possible into the usual track of Go?
vernment in which every ono is jun
tected by the laws, and no one in?
This opinion of an aldo lawyer nut;
statesman is peculiarly applicable al
the present time when confiscatioi:
and disfranchisement, test oaths am'
military commissions, arrests ato
persecutions are the. tactics of th?
radicals. After a year lias elapsed Min-,
tho termination of thu effort to sub
vert this Republic, there is not ye
quite an ?'lid of "terrors" or "pun
ishments." Rut this radical faetioi
will not heed thc teachings of an;
jurist, statesman, ortho ablest pt ?lit i
cal writers.as we heard a legal flinn
onco say, in another sense, however
"you might as well try to spout clo
quence up mi elephant's trunk" a

' Tho New York Herald, nf the llth
instant, professes to have private ad?
vices from Washington, but we are
inclined to doubt that thc President
will heed the intimation or sugges?
tion of the Herald, that kio "will not
think worth while to push the war
with the radicals to extremities."
?'rom all we read in those journal?
supposed to bo in his ooufideuoe, we
believe he will, unless they recant
their heresies and como over to his
policy. The Herald, on the faith of
ita '"private ad vices," says:
The constitutional amendment, as
it has passed the Senate, designed tc
cover the reconstruction and re-ad
missiou into Congress of the lately
rebellious States, will probably, with?
out further modification, be passed
by the House to-day under the pre?
vious question, in order that this
amendment may be submitted with?
out further loss of time to the States
We understand, further, that an
.extra session of our Legislature may
bo looked for to inaugurate this work
of ratification, and that it is supposed
this exainplo will be followed by other
States. The Republicans in Con?
gress, we are also informed, aro san?
guine that the requirer! ratification of
three-fourths of tho State Legisla?
tures can bc secured to this amend?
ment in season to restore to their
places in Congress most, if not all,
of the excluded States during the
next session. It is believed that the
bill which is to follow this constitu?
tional amendment, giviugthose States
ten years credit on their share of the
national debt, will have a decisive in?
fluence over them, ready cash being
an article of which they are now
We are not advised whether in
those movements tho co-operation of
Congress and the President is ?.\
pected; but as Congress has aban?
doned ils main issue with thc Presi?
dent-negro suffrage-and has adopt?
ed his policy, he will not. perhaps,
think it worth while to push the wai
with the radicals to extremities on
the issue between Executive anil
legislative usurpation. There is som t
generalship in tho idea o? a specia
session of our State Legislature am
of others, to ratify this amendment
as it will clear the decks and give thi
Republicans the actual occupation o
the field in advance of the coming
fall elections. In this view, weawai

We hayo another piquant article
from the pen of "Mack," the wide?
awake and intelligent correspondent
of the Cincinnati Commercial, in the
sketch of the "Dead DuckV quack?
ing relatives and immediate family,
which we publish below. "Mack"
deserves credit for this interesting
notice of the "house of Forney:"
toKNKy, THK nisrOTKBBerntD i ATBIOT.
Every once in a while the great^
American toady, John W. Forney,
speaks of the party which supports
tho President ns made up of "hire?
lings," a word which he borrows
from the vocabulary of the late
Southern masters. The public may j
like to know how purely disinter- j
ewted Forney is, and has been, in
support of the Republican party- j
how much self-sacrifice he displays in ?
the premises, in fact.
Firstly, then, there is John W. \
Forney, the dead duck in jrropria \
persona^ Clerk of the Senate, at ?
$3,500 a year and stealings.
Secondly, there is D. C. Forney,
publisher of the Chronicle, cousin of;
the dead ?luck s, in pay of the Senate,
drawing a salary of about $2,000 u]
year for work which he never per- ;
forms-a clear swindle.
Thrrdlv, there is another Forney, j
a brother of the duck's, mail agent'
between here and Philadelphia?.
Fourthly, then? is another brother, i
mail agent on flic Pennsvlvania Ccu-:
Fifthly, there is a junior Forney,
who all through the war was a staff!
officer, on duty in Philadelphia.
Sixthly, there is another sou of the I
?lend duck's who, early in the war,
was gol a commission iuthenavy,
under a solemn covenant never to be
sent to sea, nor exposed to the rude
fire of rebel guns-and he never was.
Seventhly, Forney is carried about
the city of Washington in a vehicle
owned by the Government, drawn by
a horse owned by the Government,
and driven by a man paid as a labor
er in the Capitol grounds. All of
which may bu strictly patriotic, hut
it is not legal.
Eighthly, Forney has for a private
servant a man who is paid as a la?
borer for the Senate, which is con?
trary to the law iu such eases made
Ninthly, Forney gets the Chronicle
edited by men who are pani as clerks
of the Senate, which may be patriot?
ism, but looks like .swindling.
Teuthly, Forney will employ no?
body as clerk or messenger in the Se?
nate who will not help t?> edit either
tho Chronicle ot the Press; which is
good eeonomv but bad morals in the
Eleventhly, Forney wrote a beg
giug letter to the President about six
months ago. The President did not
giant the prayer of tin; petitioner,
and the Chronicle immediately came
out against Andrew Johnson and his
policy; which may be disinterested,
but doesn't look that way; looks
rather like an unsuccessful attempt to
t ii.i/h thc pregnant hinges of ttic knee.
