As a mutter of fgreat interest to
many Of our renders, we subjoin a
portion of the last part of Commis?
sioner Rollins' instructions for tho
assessment of tho annual taxes of
1867. They have been prepared and
printed to answer tho questions most
1. Section 71 requires all special
tax receipts (except in cases of auc?
tioneers, produce brokers, commer?
cial brokers, patent-right dealers,
photographers, builders, insurance
agents and pcdlers,) to specify tho
place at which tho business is to be
done, aud tho word "pince," as hero
used, is construed to mean tho pre?
mises occupied by the tax-payer in
the prosecution of his business, who-1
ther the placo be a single room in a
building coutaiuiug mauy rooms, or
whether it bc several buildings stand?
ing upon tho same premises and used
for a common purpose. But there
are certain branches of business
which are not restricted to such pre?
mises, as it is provided iu tho Act
that lawyers, physicians, surgeons,
dentists, cattle brokers and horse
dealers may do business at any place
whatever without being subject to
additional special tax. Proprietors of
circuses, jugglers, ?fcc, must pay a
special tax for each State in which
2. The special tax of dealers must
be assoBsed upon the basis of all sales
made, either by themselves or through
others, except those through other
wholesale dealers on commissiou.
3. Manufacturers may, without
additional liability, sell their wares at
the place of manufacture, or at their
principal office, provided no wares
aro kept, except as samples, at such
office. But if a manufacturer sell at
his factory, or at his office, goods uot
of bis own production, he must pay
tax as a dealer if such sales exceed
$1,000 annually, and such tax will bo
assessed upon his sales of such goods
only, and not upon sales of his own
4. Special tax receipts are not
transferable, but in case of removal,
the tax-payer is liable to additional
tax unless tho fact of removal is regis?
tered, ns provided in section 75.
5. The tax required under the pro?
viso to section 76, for all or either
two of tho classes of business therein
named, is $25.
6. The special tax of a bank should
be assessed upon its chartered capi?
tal; that of a banker upon tho
amount of capital used or employed.
7. Whenever a retail dealer is
found to have made sales 'exceeding
$25,000, ho should bo assessed as a
wholesale dealer from the dato of his
liability as a retail dealer. The col?
lector should endorse upon his tax
receipt the amount of re-assessment
8. The liability to special tax de?
pends, in many cases, upon the ques?
tion whether tho party makes a busi?
ness of doing the acts specified.
Occasional acts do not render a per?
son liablo to special tax, but it is not
necessary that tho business should be
his solo business, or even his princi?
pal one, iu order that ho may beheld
liablo. If a person bolds ont to the
public by advertisement, by words,
deeds or writing, that he is ready to
transact any kind of business subject
to special tax, ho must pay such tax,
although tho business in qnostiou
may not bo his chief or exclusive
occupation. lu tho following named
occupations aud professions, oven
occasional acts do not appear to be
allowed by tho terms of the law with?
out liability: Wholesale and retail
dealers in liquors, lottery-ticket deal?
ers, ( list il Inn;, brewers, rectifiers, coal
oil distillers, insurance agents, ped?
iera, photographers, circuses, jug?
glers, bowling alleys, proprietors of
gift enterprises and lawyers.
? 9. Wholesaloand rotail dealers may
do business as confectioners and
apothecaries at tho same place with?
out the additional special tax.
10. Under the Act of March 2,
1807, a retail liquor dealer may sell
liquors in quantities of moro than
three gallons at one time to the same
purchaser, without being thereby
rendered liable as a wholesale liqnor
11. YVholesalo dealers in liquor
may sell liquor at retail, and both
wholcsalo aud retail dealei-s in liquor
may sell other merchandize, and may
sell liquor to be drunk on tho pre?
mises, without payment of addi?
tional special tax, but all sales must
be included in the basis of their spe?
cial tax as dealers.
12. If thc sales of a retail dealev in
liquors exceed $25,000, ho shall bo
re-assessed as a wholesalo dealer in
liquors. The collector should enter
the amount of re-assessment paid
him upon tho tax receipt.
13. Hotel-keerjers may feed the
horses of their guests without paying
tax as livery stable keepers.
14. If a produce broker's sales ex?
ceed $10,000 annually, he should bo
treated as a commercial broker or a
dealer, as the case may be.
15. Pedlers may buy up produce to
sell agnin, as pedlers, without liabili?
ty as produco "brokers. Produce
brokers cannot pcddlo produco from
house to houso without incurring
liability as pedlers.
1G. Original or unbroken packages
or pieces, ns referred to in paragraph
32 of section 79, are held to bo pack?
ages or pieces sold just as they como
from tho manufacturer, wholesale
dealer, or importer, without being
broken or divided.
17. Brewers and rectifiers may sell
their liquors nt tho brewery or place
of rectification, in largo or small
quantities, either to be drunk on tho
premises or not, without payment of
other special tax. Brewers and rec?
tifiers may also deliver their liquors
I upon orders previously received to
their regular customers about tho
country, without paymenL of special
tax as pedlers.
j 18. Farmers and others who fre?
quently furnish food and lodgings to
travelers for pay should bo taxed as
hotel-keepers. Yet au occasional act
of that kind should not be construed
as rendering any person liable to such
19. Persons engaged in tho busi?
ness of preparing legal papers in sup?
port of claims ngaiust tho General
Government, who do not present the
claims personally, or by letter before
tho departments, should bo taxed as
conveyancers, unless paying special I
tax as lawyers or special agents.
PnosrEcnvE VOTERS.-Tho loose?
ness of language indulged in now-a
days by Congressmen aud news?
papers is destroying all exactitude
of knowledge and thoughts among
tho American people. A radical
statistician tells us that the "recon?
struction law is revolutionizing tho
South, because in creating a mliiioa
of black voters, it has made," etc.,
etc. Now, this may revolutionize
the South, but it will not create any?
thing like a "million" of black
voters. Tho entire colored popu?
lation of the ten excluded States by
last census was 3,370,000; and wo
know by the statistics of General
Howard that it has not increased
since that time. Tho actual ratio of
voters to tho population, even in
populous and drfnselv settled white
States like this, is (as near ns may
be) one-sixth-though a somowhat
larger proportion is legally entitled
to vote. But oven on the estimate
that in very exciting elections, ono
fifth of the population may vote, wo
shall bo very far indeed from gotting
anything like a million voters among
the Southern blacks. On no reason?
able or intelligent calculation what?
ever can wo find over a half a million
of voters among tho black population
of the ten excluded States. So thr t
tho estimate of a "million" may be
6aid to be wrong only by the tritio of
500,000.-NtJio York Times.
COTTON GUOWTNG.-Throughout tho
cotton region thero is a general feel?
ing of depression, largely consequent
upon the political prospect of its
future, that inevitably tends to and
foreshadows a decrease in the pro?
duction of tho staple. Already, it
is said, the feeling among planters
obtains to a great extont that tho
main consideration should be, and
will be, to raise provisions for them?
selves and those dependent on thom,
and to regard tho raising of cotton
simply as secondary and auxiliary,
limiting its production ta tho extent
of merely providing necessaries of
living that cannot bo producod at
homo. A poor show toward reviving
and invigorating that commerce
which languishes now for tho nou?
rishment u thrifty cotton region here?

DESTITUTION AND STARVATION. -The
Mayor of our city is informed that a
death occurred in a neighboring dis?
trict in this County very recently,
from starvation. It is sinted that
two widow ladies aud their families

were reduced to such destitution as

IN AID OF THE
SOUTHERN ORPHAN ASSOCIATION !
(Incorporated bg the Legislature of Vir?
ginia, January 30, 18C7.)
TO BE GIVEN AT THE
Maryland Institute, Baltimore,
" APRIL 30, 18G7.
THE profits of thia Concert will bo given
to tho Southern Orphan's Association,
to tlic subjoined address from tho officers
of which wo call tho attention of tho public:
Wo, tho ofticera of tho Southern Or?
phan's Association, for tho maintenance
and education of tho destituto orphans of
deceased Southern soldiers and sailors,
earnestly solicit tho sympathy and co-ope?
ration in our Grand Presentation Concert,
of all who desiro to seo tho
"HOME AND SCHOOL"
Enabled to receive and caro for all tho
needy ones who seek its shelter and pro?
Thanking our friends for their past con?
tributions and assistance, we again appeal
to them to help us in a moro extensivo en?
terprise. It is tho design of this Associa?
tion to erect a "HOME AND SCHOOL" for
tho orphans of tho South, both malo and
female, on an extensivo seato, in tho city of
Richmond, Virginia. As an inducement to
havo tho building located there, tho Com?
mon Council of that city havo guaranteed
a sufficient lot of land, in an elevated and
healthful location, and will increase tho
quantity of land if needed.
It is with a ionlident hope ?n a favorable
responso to this appeal to a public which
has never yet failed to sustain a charitahlo
institution, that we havo entered into an
arrangement with Mesar... L. T. PALMER
fe CO., No. 13 Holliday street, Baltimore,
to organizo a GRAND MUSICAL .PRE?
SENTATION CONCERT for its benefit,
and earnestly solicit tho kindly aid and pa?
tronage of thc public to insure its success.

It may scorn unnecessary to add a singlo
word to tho above address", but calls upon
tho institution havo been so numerous and
pressing, and tho struggle through which
it is now passing to widen thc circle of its
charities, is of such an arduous nature,
that the management cannot too strongly
urge upon the humano and pathotic every?
where an activo participation in this addi?
tional attempt to alleviate the sad condi?
tion of great numbers of helpless children,
rendered thus by tho terribie war through
which wc have passed. And, assuredly,
whatever may havo been tho relative po?
litical views of ladies and geutlomcn here?
tofore, all must agrco that tho children
referred to could not. by any possibility,
havo had any agency in bringing about
their present deplorable and destitute con?
dition, aud aro euitablo objects for tho
charity of all persons, of whatever shade
of political opinion. Tho "Homo and
School" which they now moro particularly
seek to establish and endow, will bo of in?
calculable benefit, by providing not only
food and raiment for these helpless ones,
but likewise solid and thorough education;
thus qualifying them for future usefulness
to society at large.
In order that this appeal may be effect?
ual in enlisting tho active interest and co?
operation of all classes of persons every?
where, wo have concluded to issue for the
Grand Presentation Musical Concert 500,
