Our Taxes.
Citizens of Vinton, now is the time
to select men in your difl'erent Town
ships, for the purpose of serving you
another year; this is the time to raise
the question, Will these men that I am
going to vote for, be cautious in levy
ing our local taxes? By recent legis
lation the local taxes are raised to a
considerable, extent by our townslupiacteristie

s these, and other which might be and

trouble, we repeat, is very far from the
proper purpose. Such a controversy we
shall not court; but if truth should ren
der it necessary, we shall nut hesitate to
bear such a share iu it as we may deem
due at our hands.
We believe, let us say frankly, that
the taxes are too heavy that the mur

ng such departure,
ed with contempt and we further be
lieve that a remedy can be found. We
believe that our people are taxed far
more than is necessary; and we firmly
believe that the causes are both consli
tutional and legislative; whether ad
ministrative or not, is a matter for fu
ture consideration. The time is at hand
when the subject must be taken tip, with
candor and with courage. This is de
manded by men of all parties, and of
every degree of fortune. It cannot lon
ger be evaded, arid that party which re
fuses to grapple at oace the questions
both of the necessity and character of a
reform, will find itself far in the rear of
popular action. It is time for the Dem
ocratic masses to look the ciisis fully
and fearlessly in the face, and to treat it
with the seriousness becoming its digni
ty and importance. Il will be our task,
from time to time, to talk with our rea
ders upon it, fully appreciating the dif
ficulties which have been made to un
necessarily surround it, jet feeling in
those very difficulties in additional in
centive to its solution. We shall talk
plainly. No good purpose can be sub
served by approaching the subject with
timid steps.- Wherever an unnecessary
addition has been made to the tax list of
. tbe citizen, in our opinion, we shall say
so, end furnish whatever has operated
on our minds as proof, as a reason for
lopping off so mnch of the burden. It
is in this spirit alone that the subject
should be treated, and will be treated, in
our columns."
Court of Common Pleas.
This Court commenced its Spring
Term, for 1855, on last Monday, the
Hon. W. V. Peck presiding. We
notice in attendance the following gen
tlemen of the Bar: Hon. J. E. Han
ma, ol Morgan; Hon. J. Welsh, of
Athens; Bokdy rJ Huffman, Esqrs.,
of Jackson, and J. Eradberrv, Esqr.,
of Meigs; all apparently in good health
and spirits.
There were no important cases dis
posed of during thia Term ; the busi
ness of tha Court mostly consisting ol
collection?, and, questions incident
thereto.- . ;

The editor of the Athens Messen
ger charges our correspondent, "An
Old Acquaintance," with garbling tlie
jacK t language, (iow, certain wings
in McAilhttr, and all others, who read
his paper knows that the language was
not garbled. It is a little singular tint
this thing should tell such defaced
lies, when the evidence to contradict
stares him in the face; why not say it
was an error of the pen or types? We
can only account for this lying propen
sity by the fact that Jack got Wx'brol
en vp' in the defunct Whig party and
that he has now gone over, soul and
body, to Know Nothingism, thus ex
hibiting all the characteristics of tl
t-rue Jack by stubbornly holding on to
evil. We hope for the best; but pres
ent indications lead us to believe that
Jack's associations with the lather of
all lies will be Ions and uninterrupted
through one eternity at least. We don't
wish to have it understood bv this that
Jack will go to the devil if he don't
reform; we only wish to call his ntten-
non to the present indications. Come
Jack, dofl' the w oil's garb and put on
one half as holt as the one vou urcteni:
to have stripped oll'our correspondent,
and our word for it you will live an
honester man by virtue of the change.

Grand Council of Know Nothings
OFFICIAL PROCEEDINGS.
CINCINNATI, Nov. 1, 1854.
We shall, lrom time to time, publish
such part ot the cUkial proceedings of
the Know JNothinss as we deem most
important to our readers; we are sorry
that we have not room to publish the
proceedings entire. Imagine, reader,
that you see these scoundrels puling liic-
novitiate in a kneeling position, caus
ing him to gtasp the glorious Stars and
Stripes, to swear that his country shall
no longer protect the oppressed, and
that free America shall no longer Le
the hon ol the talented and brave ol
other lands. Imagine this and you
have the picture before you; then read
the following part ol their proceedings:
Bro. Schuyler offered the following
resolution:
Iieaolved, That we reccommend to the
National Council so to amend the rule
regulating the qualifications of member
ship in this order, thai persons of a lor
eign birth, who are not of the Catholic
religion, w ho have given satislacto rv
evidence of attechmeiit to American in
stitutions, and have resided in the Uui
ted States twenty one year3, or havr
been naturalized fifteen years, may be
admitted to membership.
To which 1'ro. Lewis D. Campbell
moved the following amendment:
Provided, That no person shall be le-
garrlrd as included within the provisions
of this order who has not resided with
in the jurisdiction of the United Slates,
from the time he arrived at the age ol
ten years.
On motion, the resolution and amend
ment were laid upon the table by tote
of 64 yeas to 4 nays.

Mr. Eqitor: I see by the last is
sue of the Athens Messenger that tlie
.AirA' eais are really up again; he
gives a bah-lnw-yah, and utters the
following: "A miserable scullion of
this place, whom we have heretofore
been compelled to strip of his holy
garbs and hang u'p before tho public in
all his native 'deformity and hideous
ness, has again been writing lo the
"Corn Whiskey Orgtn," at Mc Ar
thur, in which lie garbles our language
of a week or two since in reference to
a case of larceny before the Probate
Court of this county, as if to keep tip
tact prominently belore the public that
.ie writer is a most ungodly knave and
hopeless simpleton." Garble yourl
language, Jack, untrue here it is just
as it tell from vour own i)?:iTi.Jeveii
most important case on 'the docket was
the Male vs. Joseph t lowers charged
with bei.,.r ... Promi.liri. !,. cr.iH.,',.1

is the garbling, the truth is, you are
too varied and "hopeless a simpleton"
to nndei stand your own lan-nurT. or

The report we cave last week of

Court, i not true it seems.
We are authorized by Judge Bartley
himself, says the Mansfield Shield and

by the Wayne County Democrat isicAof

decisions. It might be well that some
little caution should be used by edi'.on

sition of the practical atheism of the

ligion, uud a reality 1 in the Faith of
Christ can conscientiously call in the
aid of secret sworn societies to put down
wtiat they think a False Religion. If
they believe that true religion is incap
able of sustaining itself without un
christian aid, they can huve little con
fidence iu Chiistianity. ' If they think
God needs such aid to keep Ilia worship

His existence, What' is wanted among
religious professors to put pown. false
religion we are not disposed to. deter
mine w hich seel is correct and which is
not is a bei'.er exem plification in their
lives, of their being Christians, and not
hypocrities, of their loving God and
not Mammon of their practising charity
and not hatred under the cloak of reli
gious sanctity what is wanted is more
real and intelligent religion and then
Christian men would not feel the heed
of making pitiful appeals-to Know
Nothingism orany other outside influ
ence to keep up the true church of God.
A church and a religion which only pro

is scarcely worth having or professing.
We trust that the sober sense of our
religionists that the intelligence of
those uutsied the church will yet unite
to crush and put pown an order of poli
ticians w ho require secrecy as a meins,
and darkness as a cover, and who while
making good professions can have no
