There are n very few people aware of
the richness of tlic mineral depot-its iu
South in Missouri, though the lead mines
of Washington and vrntiklin counties
have been in operation orer half a cento

rivals the celebrated Oalcna lead in qua!

ty and parity of tho ore. while those of
Granny have acquired a world wide ccl
ebriety, but what miy appear strange to

The Committee of Ways and Means, in
Congress, have framed a bill embodying
in part the ehanges in the revenue 'which
havo alaeady Wen agreed upon. The
tax on incomes has been fixed at tVe $er
cent, on all over ono thousand dollars.
The taxes in schedule A, which compri
se a great variety of articles, such as
Watches, carriages, 4c. have all been
thrown off except upon billiard tables
ani carriages worth over three hundred
dollars. Cotton is taxed five cenU per
pound, payable not by the planter, but
monthly by the manufacturer who recei
ves it, or by the exporter at the rime of
sh.pnient. The tax of one dollar a bar

in other counties sent none but Union

gave 46T votes against it and 14 for it, o'f
whom only one was a Gerniau. Kerr
county voted solid against it, ani other
counties did nearly as well.
