carriage struck against the middle compart

horses of course freeing themselves and con
tinuing on their way. They were ut last cap
tured and were found to be uninjured. The
gentlemen are not in so much of a hurry us

Warren, April 19th, 1870.
Dear Jocbnal :—A short time ago 1 saw |
in your paper a list of fifty-seven persons in i
the town of Thomaston, who had att lined to I
the age of seventy years and upwards, and i
it « as remarked that the number w.\ large
for a town of 3000 inhabitants, but in the ad
joining town of Warren, with a population
one-third less than that of Thomaston. there
are one hundred and twenty, who have ar-j
rivi d to the age of three-score and ten years.
Now at the same rate, Thomaston, instead
of having hut fifty-seven over Seventy years'
of age, it should have one hundred and eighty.
Of the one hundred ami twenty over - -venty
years, twenty-eight have passed their four
score years.
The oldest person in town, Mrs. Elizabeth
Hotl'ses, is ninety-six, and still hale and
hearty. Mrs. Mary Page diedyesterd v aged
ninety-five. Mrs. Jcrathniie! Leach is ninety
one, and Mrs. John Roakcs, ninety. Mr. |
Charles Mink is over ninety, but hi** exact
age is not known to the writer. Six have
died within the past six months, their ages
varying from seventy to ninety-five. This
remarkable longevity is to be attributed first
to the healthy location of the town, ai d sec
ondly to the temperate habits of the people
One in every twenty of its inhabitant" have
attained to the age of seventy years or up
wards. and we challenge any town in t! State
to beat this. Z.
4 Fraud.
Waterville, April 22 !, 1S70.
Dear Jocrsal:—The following far ts may
not be devoid of interest to many of your
readers, and perhaps some may learn from
them that they are not the only victims of the
parties here named. The facts are as fol
lows : Some time last January, a man ailing
himself Henry Whitney, engaged lvoird ot
a Mrs. F , >;f (hie place, for his wife and
child. He claimed to be from Michigan: said
he did not know just when his wife would
come, hut expected her at once. In due
time she came j was regarded a quiet -ort ot
a lade, whose husband was a hard-working
man. He claimed to be an agent for E. C.
Allen & Co., and to be canvassing for "The
Literary Compaaion.” He also state d that
he was a Life Insurance agent. He visited
his wife a few times ami stated then that he
was at work for the M. C. R. IT at Kendall's
Mills. Afier a w hile he began, as he said, to
canvass, and then he and his brother made oc
casional visits to the woman. She told the
folks that her maiden name was Taylor, and
that her folks lived in Stetson. While be was
gone she once said that she got a letter from
him and that he was at her father’s. II • soon
returned from there, and with his brother:
started for Farmington to canvass and work !
at Life Insurance. On Thursday the brother
returned, said he was siek of canvassi. g, and I
was going West.
r ridav the woman complained of a head
ache, and immediately after tea she " nt to |
her room. Her room-mate went to r lire at
ten. but finding the door fa*t decided not to dis
turb the sick woman, so came hack and slept
with some member of the family. In the
morning Mrs Whitney did not appear, the j
door was tried, found fast and finally burst
open. Alas! the poor sick woman and her
little infant had taken all their baggage ami
gone through the window, neglecting to leave
the sum of twontv-fivc dollars which was due
for board. It seems by report that some
seventy subscribers were obtained for toe pa
per at Kendall’s Mills and a number here.
Wlf.le at Newport, report says that he insured
one Mrs. Fisher who made at his request
some three or four payments. It came out
afterwards that Mrs. Whitney told her room
mate a Miss 1)-that there would be a
friend to sec her that evening so she would
feign headache and retire early, leaving her
(Miss D.) to see that tlie folks did not visit
her room. Her chagrin on hearing that she
had helped Mrs. W to retire and leave her
board bill unsettled may be imagined.

Washington, April 23.
House. Mr. Schenek of Ohio, reported
back the %enate amendment to the Income
Tax bill, and moved a non-concurrencc, stat
ing. however, that he would not ask for a
Committee of Conference. The Senate had
sent back the original joint resolution, which
had passed the House w ith a good deal ol
unanimity, with an amendment by way ot sub- j
Htilute which provided for the collection of a |
tax on some dividends and kept up the tax on
salaries, but b t everything else go.
The Committee on Ways and Means was ol
the opinion that patch-work and discrimina
tion was not lair: that the income tax ought
to either stand or to fall as entire with such
amendments as Congress may choose to make, !
therefore the Committee recommend non- 1
concurrence in the Senate amendment.
Mr. Schofield ol l*a. inquired what would
be the effect if the bill was laid on the table
and no other passed.
Mr. Schenek replied that the whole subject
of the Income tax would be left in its present
cloudy and uncertain state, and in reply to a
question from Mr. Archer of Md., sai<i that
the Cmmissioner of Internal Revenue had de
cided to go on with the collection of the tax
ing on monthly reports and on salaries, and
to claim the* income tax for ls7«) next spring;
but he (Schenek) did not know any means by
which the Commissioner could accomplish it.
Mr. Lynch of Me. inquired whether the
wuole matter could not he settled by a bill
abolishing the Income tax.
Mr- Schenek staled that the w hole subject!
would come before the House in the General I
Revenue bill, which was the next special or
der in the Com. ol'the Whole.
Mr. Wood of N. Y. thought that this was !
the appropriate time to take some action for
the entire and absolute repeal of the income 1
lax. If Congress desired to carry out th**
universal public opinion, the sooner it got rid i
of this unjust tax the better.
Mr. Schenek wan not at all surprised that J
the gentleman from New York should us ;
such wholesale and sweeping assertions in
reference to the tax. All over the country
they had through the newspapers, by letters [
and by various means, and perhaps by Con- !
gress, tried to make them believe the income
tax was a most atrocious, infamous, unequal,
unfair law.
The whole number ot persons who paid the ,
income tax was 272..-43. and of this number
over 107,WO paid $20 or less, and if exemp
tion was raised to two thousand that class
would bo cut off. The second class, who paid
between $20 and $50 number O'J.lfil; the
third class that paid between $50 and $100
number 41.100; the fourth class that paid be
tween $100 and $200 numbered over 45.000.
and those who paid over $2w number 0,404.
After further discussion, in which Messrs.
Vooihees. Coburn and others favored the eon- '
tinuanee of the tax, the House refused to lay
the bill on the table and then refused to con
cur in the Senate substitute, leaving the Sen
ate to ask for a Committee of Conference if it
chooses. ;
The Speaker announced the appointment
of Messrs. Garfield. Allison and Cox a Con
ference Committee on the Census bill.
Mr. Dawes ot Mass, appealed to the House!
in behalf of his colleague, Mr. Butler, who
had taken his family home on account ot ill- j
ness, and asked that like the other absentees '
last night he be charged SI, and that he have 1
a leave of absence.
Mr. Strong presented a petition of the citi- ,
zens of Hartford for the abrogation of legacy
