THE INCOME TAX.
Taxation is a necessity on which
national existence is consequent,
and objections are tot bo much
agaiast a necessary increase thcro
cf, aa the mode . and ' manner in
which it is increased, and the " jus
tice with which its burdens r fall
upon the taxpayers. The history of
England and of Ibis country
demostrate that the most unfair and
unjust mde of taxation ever adopt
ed in eitUtir, was that of the income
tax. . , .-.
Th9 first income tax ever imposed
in Great Brltian was imposed only
as a temporary exigency, " and
against the judgment ofSirKoBEBT
I'ekIh who, with all the aid he couH

equalizing, it, ibund that, it could
under no circumstances be thtrr
than an unjust, eppreaslve and ex

resolved that only upon extraordin
ary occasions should it be resorted
to, and never relied upon es a per
manent source : of revenue. Not
only U it an expensive and genera
lly oppressive' mode-of taxation,
Itutone that carries with it "every

Texation, and leads '.directly to
falsehood, evasion and perjury, and
the creation of a host of spies and
informers, whose creation in any
department of the government ser

forms of corruption, putting vice ai
it dues at a premium, and virtue at
a discount. When the English in

theUouse ct Commons otiJJioj
adoption of the firdi income tax,
Sir Robert. Peel - eaid: "Nothing
tint a political necessity of magni
tude and emerpeny would ' justify
its imposition." and that it fell with
peculiar severity on those who are
determined to act honestly, and
was in its very nature a bounty to

under the English law were all the

ne-fourth ' of the number who
should pay, pay anything at all;
and, of those who do pay, not one
fourth of the amount to which they
fcretonestfy liable assessed or
collected. We-have before us a
return of the British assessment for

number assessed under this, sche
dale was 256,891 persons. No less
than 212.610 of these were charged
upon incomes less than Z0") a year.
Now according to this return
there were less than fifty thousand

he was snred by the French
Embassador , that . the , proposals
originated in Berlin, and were do-
dined by France. The Prussian
Embassador to England yesterday

France, in" 1866, offered to- lend
Prussia 300,000 men to use against
Austria it Prussia would bnrrender
to France the : territory between
the lhine and iloselio. . The re
jection of this1 proposition caused
the Emperor's sympathy for Aus

ha declined to allow foreign mili

that although legal means and the

may well be reported to for aid in

The Success of Prohibitory
As the opposers of Prohibitory
laws, are constantly railing out
about the inability of them . to ftc
complisb the desired object, we
cite the iollowmg article from the
Lewistown (Me.) Journal, for their
consideration : . ....
We give our Chicago correspond
ent the facts in this city and conn
try, in a very brief compass. We
have no knowledge of the existence
in this city of 12,000 inhabitants,
of an open, undisguised liquor
saloon, selling whisky, gin, brandy,
&c., from day to day, with the
knowledge of community, for the
past twelve years, or since Prohibi
tion became the settled policy of
the state. These liauors have, of
com so, been sold to a greater or less
extent just as other crimes have
been committed during this time,
but rarely in any other than a se
cret manner. To-day, even the se
cret sale is confined mainly to the
drez of population, in dark holes,
in horels, where the stock ia trade
consists of nry a few gallons,
surreptitiously smuggled into the
city, and concealed in some secret
place. Even this kennel safe is so
restricted that it is very difficult
for any outsiders to purchase a glass
of liquor. In the adjacent city , of,
Auburn a citv of 12,000 mhabi-
tants the same state uf facts exists.

A5CE. Wendell Phillips made a
speech on temporance, lately, which
is reported by the Boston Daily
Adrertiscr, as follows:
. '"There is one singularity about
the temperance movement, and it
19 this: .AH that class which arro
gates "to itself the name distinctly
of the educated clasn the rich, or
upper ,n4 influential class looks
down on the temperance movement
as something not only vulgar and
narrow, as confined to tho very
warm zeal of a f w unthinking men
and women rather ignorant than
otherwise of the limits of legislation,
presuming that law can do a great
deal more than it ever did or can ef
fect men and women that never
studied sfrience; have no' acouain-
laiice with tho human body, its
weakness or its needs; and alto
gether the children of their own
excited imagination, . who exag
gerate a superficial etil into a great
bocin! disoase; alarming themselves
with an overdrawn picture of its
strength ' and of . its . evil : results.
