THE TAX ON LIQUORS.
I'npkr the head "a aatirce of ravoririe,"
tome inw wks ainvs w published an Ar
ticle on tho propriety of heavily taxing all
kinds of alcoholio liquors, and all persona
who troft'w- ih it- W them aUUd tha ii
como derived by tho Ilritiah from that source
to lo equivalent to one third of thoir onur
innua rovouua. From recent report of the
British Ooveiiient we perceive our aUtc
tuout to havo boon under tlio mark.' The
returns for 16C0 standi aa follows : .
Tobacco and Snuff-
Making in our currency tho aiitn of 8l"3,
000,000 or about $10,000,000 more from
those Hourcct alone than tho Tariff Conitnit
tou export to raise from all sources under
thoir new bill.
Tho tax on British spirits is $2,0 per
gallon. On common and unmanufactured
tobacco 40c. por pound, on cigars $2,30 per
pound. Tho maltstor must first obtain a li
conco before he can enter on the nianufuc
turn of malt, after which every bushed of
malt tuado by him is boavily taxed. The
distillor, the .brewer, the retail doalor in
strong; drink, all havo to pay for thoir li'
cense to engage in tho tralllo, and by this pro
co.js Uio Urge aggregate is acquired. Wo
duciu thin systom of taxation to bo both
ruiiMotmble and just, and as ubly stated by
th Now Yord Trihuno, ami the Now York
liitl'.ptnl?nt, we affirm that "taxes should
Lo so laid M to bear on tho yIluj of tho
community rather than its virtues, for many
luunotitf. 1st. It is vice, not virtue that
renders covornmout necoBnary. , 2nd. It is
tlio avowed end of government to protect
virtuo and discountenance vice, and, 3rd.
vico doi 'H not mind expense, but id Killing
to pay for iU gratification." We must have
u law which shall bear heavily upon ovury
thing which promotes or stimulates vice,
immorality, or extravagance. 1-ot tltono,
who livo iu luxurious indolonce, pay tho
prupor penalty for their indulgence and,
idleness. This is a fitting tinia for our pol
iticians and law makers to think of mich
matters. Wo want all the help now which
m pure morality can give us. Wo want a
basis w hich is sound, healthful and high
toiicil, und one which skall make .ood men
strong, and influential, and wicked men
weak and powerless. Wo have now a
chanco to meet an enemy, more destructive
than w ar, more desolating than pestilence,
That enemy is iubnupcrancc. War has
tilaiu iu thousands intomperance its tens
of IhouHauds. Wives mourn the los,i of
bu.baiidu, and children deplore tho loss of
parent- who havo sacrificed wealth, honor,
bunltu, life, said eternal happiness, to grati
fy thin debusing passion.
How then shall vro rectify tho ovil? Hindi
it bo douo by calling thoso engaged iu tho
traffic, hard names T Hliall it bo done by
the enactment of legal prohibition from the
use of strong drink? Wo apprehend not.
Such modes of operation must of nccoKnity
in the present state and condition of socioty
utterly fail. Men will not bo reformed by
Itnrd language, or bruto force. It is educa
tion. It is moral restraint. It is the en
liulliug precepts of Christianity adono that
cuu accomplish it. Wo believe that what
ever rational plau can bo adopted to limit
and restrict the prevailing use of alcoholic
diUiLtf, will prove a blessing to our people
uud nation. At the present time and iu tho
present condition of socioty, wo can con
ceive of no plan, more certainly tending to
such results than that of levying heavy tax
-on every class of. alcoholic drinks nmtiuf-
tuied, or sold. The high prieo of liquors
will thus of necessity place a very large
clans of the victims of intemperance in a
puiitl.m of comparative sobriety iu which
habits uf tsmperanco may be measurably
acquired ; and thus afTord cop to Chris
tians uud pkilantropbists for tho exorcise of
the poteut influences of sympathy, kind
ness, and the teachings of Christianity.
Tims may wo hopo by force of nuetissity,
and education to redoom many victims from
this blou;;li of misery and vice. To thus
debar the poor trow an uucotitrolliiblo hab
it s pernicious and destructive, will bo
to teach them the art of self control, t' aid
them in a regard for the blessings of nodal
life, and thus elevate ibidr thoughts to the
bijher destiny of moral ond intellectual
Tho nuai of means, the wealthy victim
td' iuu-mpcrancc has no other resource than
c!f determination for his deliverance from
this dire curse; but how weak and futile
docs the force of Labit, make this pow er of
ihe human character. Witb an appetite for
drink in man j money inspires au inwtiable
desire to gratify it, and in the majority ut
kucsi cases, the only hope of thoir deliver
unco from this gigantic national evil, ia in
tha sleep of death. We now repeat, what
v e uftirmed in a previous article! on the sub.
' ject. Intemperance is a curse to individuals,
a curse to families, a curse iu society, it is a
tiutionkl uud an unmitigated curse. It has
' been a fruitful aource of uiWry, crime, and
uf bloodshed. In this mannor it has bur
dened our township, counties, aud states
' w'uh taxation. ' All interference with the
cause, of these evils, in the shape of pro
hibition, baa been designated by certain
judges and lawyers as unconstitutional aud
from the recent action of Congress iu re
gard to l!.o importation, niaiiuactmo and
ule of Honors, we may well conceive that
tlu b'gal Matus, given thin liailic. by nut
Jiij-Ju-st legislative authority wiil ciuho all

all times shall have free access. It will tint
do to nmko every man, woman and child an
officer of customs with a law hanging over

cal extent of our country, tho cost of collect
ing taxos on many of tho ni tielos specified
will bo as great as the revenue derived; il
licit trade, and coiitrabandism will spring

of the rich, and less on thoso of tho poor.
DOWN ON NEWSPAPERS.
Evan since the commencement of the
present war a marked hostility to newspa
pers has characterized tho acts of many of
our military and civil officials. Tho first at
tempt was an endeavor to placo restrictions
upon them through tho posi-Oll'ice Depart
ment, but tho bill failed to pass tho House.
Then a military censorship was established,
which, however dosirablu an inntitution, and
just iu iU intentions, acted very harshly to
wards some of tlio newspaper fraternity.
Lator, the tax-bill, now pending before tho
House, imposes burthens upon the newspa
per press which can only result iu the
deuth of tlio majority of the papers now
published. All tho block in heavily taxed
which enters into their composition, and
which muul o l'ol by the publishers, and
then tho tax upon their advertisements and
(therwise, makes tho proposed burthen
very heavy, and unjustly so, in iow of the
fact that no branch of business lias siill'erod
so heavily from tho condition of tho coun
try. Very jnairy papers havo simply been
running at a loss for months pust, or only
making current expenses, without tha most
remote prospect of a healthy and comfort
Tho militaiy havo viod with Congress h)
animoHity towards uowspapcrs, and havo
regarded with an uii;uo)intollj horror the
presence wilhin the lint'H of their corrcs
poudouls. Ceu. Htone, und Cen. Fl.erman,
(of 'Uio,) particularly, evinced a decided
antipathy to that ohtss of persons, und sub
ioquenl events showed that they had every
reaaoii to avoid homw inquiry into their
acts. This feeling has always been ibomoro
marked 31 their own unpopularity with the
public became inonjipparcnt.
Lastly, our irlrenchini; l,egiU!yro, (rii
the Adjourned session,) in its cagorucNS to
delude tho jviipjji into tl.u belief that they
were economizing in tho Ijuverimietit, took
up llio strain, und by dint of repealing the
provision for tho publication of tho laws,
(with tlio idea, no doubt, that the people
would know thi by intuition), decreasing
the number of insertions uf iho luli;joueiit
list, reducing the fees for advertising hher
ilTs Bales, and cutting down generally tho
already paltry iucomo they receive from
the county and State, have succeeded in
saving C Jho people, by depriving them of
necessary informutu.)!, f about one-half
tho amount that has been paui for IimmIu-
tiv holidays this wiuter. This hostility is )
rather nowj, us ninety-nine out of every
huudrcd of these nieii ov !:(ir military or
civil positions almost entirely to Hw ptuJj. j
rorhaps they fear Unit the power which
made thtuu, can aud will uiitmiUo them jln(t
as readily, and are, therefore, attempting,
by " unfriendly legislation," to dceieaso tho
number of their arbitors to as small a fig
ure ft possible.
The Columbus Jovpnil closes a w ell writ
ton article on this subject ii tJi, following
KXprossive language: "The people are ev,
orywhurt) beginning to look at this business
of retrenchment..! ajd f" give expression, iu
terms more emphatic than titiul,Li( to their
conclusion that these professions of lOr
trenchment are all humbug. They will de
mand and uphold a judicious economy in
Klate expenditure with firmness and fidelity;
but they will scathe and scout tho men
whoso mouth proclaim retrenchment while
their hands squander the people's treasure."
GEN U. S. GRANT.
It is to bd hoped that Cen. tirant, the
Comniander-in-Chief hi tlu. .".-Id, will have
at leant iho credit of having gained vic
tory in tho greatest battle that has yet been
fought probably the greatest of the pres

In this instance a gmwrpiis public senti

Job pot would fiot'dara impose on Ida cn

ing, nay revolts, vve nhould'wittioss against
tint fxuCtion by atithorlty of such Imposts
as we yield w ith cheerful alactry to luxu
rious upprtit)s. The r-yo demands its
shows, exhibitions, peorrle t the ear, all
Mtudied and exquisite hawnunics ; the palate,
dainties' from all Ocas and frm all lands ;
f'.sfrlltnttrttSR vanity must Iks bedecked with
pearls from the Orient, and gems from
' Ormtis or the Ind." The humblest and
poorest pays his tribute to artificial but im
perative v:untt which the grandees of olden
timo never dreamed of.
Napoleon is reported to have said that he
found vices very good putriots. "He got
live millions from tlio love of brandy, and
tie should be glad to know which of the
virtues would pay him so much." Waldo
Emerson nays, " tobacco und opium have
broad backs, ami will cheerfully carry the
load of armies, if you choose to nmko them
pay high for such joy as they give, and
hiicIi harm us they do."
Wo have before onr eyes h good illustra
tion of the operation of indirect taxes, iu
the old tariff revenue system. Until the
insurrection broke out, tho problem wus
how to assess the duticn so us not to pro
duce u largo surplus in the treasury from
Custom House duties. Yet what porportion
of tho consumers knew tho diffcrciico be
tween free and dutiable goods 1 Or in pur
chasing an article of luxury or of necessity,
how many rcllected whether they were
virtually contributing a dollar, a dime, or
nothing to the treasury T
The pending tax bill affrights not a few ;
they discover on all sides tqiccific or ad
Buluvum rates that have a formidable aspcot.
Wore any ono to reflect, however, upon the
daily anil voluntary tax ho pays, and con
sider how small is the proportion of the
public burthens even uudur the heaviest
war t.ix, computed with thoso which appe
tite and vanity, in some of a thom;and
forms, exact from thoir votaries nay from
the uliHtemioilK, the exact and tlio prudent,
who have nu vices, and pamper no artificial
want, he would perceive wtut bi ihijifj are
he.ivicBt, and what power is tuout exacting.
The theme is one for the moralist, and the
tax bill miht furnish the text.
HARD FIGHTING YET.
WimnrkR suppoou tlio hurd lighting is

and if it bo possible, with the means they

Miy point, w'hutever other poiuly uj'o loft

strate this. The fedural troops ore gradu

It is evident that some uf Mit lidlit fight
ing remains yet to be douo.
SANITARY STATE OF THE ARMY.
Invkstkiations in roferoneo to the sanita
ry condition jf the army, it is said, have
determine 1 the following important' facts;
that much tho largest percentage of sick

is assigned for this comparative condition
of the troops as to health, but the fact is an
important and significant one.
