Tittt-Loek at tlia rigaraa Intelligent tneu seldom give vent to their spile or prejudice when it can only resnlt in injuring themselves. We sometimes hear of individuals willing to cat off their nose to spite tbeir face, but are confident that not many of that class are visible in this latitude. We are very sure they are too scarce iu Evansville to afford Mr. Johnson the slightest hope of beiatr elected. The balk ot our voting population are property holders, owners of small homesteada, who work for tbeir livelihood, and are vitatjy interested in having the city taxes reduced to the lowest possible limit, and yet furnish funds necessary to meet the liabilities of the city and sustain the public improvements required by its growth and expanding pros perity. To these men we offer for their consideration a few figures, that they may r-.aliza what they are to gain or lo3e 'by a change of ll-yor at this juncture of affairs. As a general principle, the taxes imposed upon a community, are a fair commentary upon the manner in which the financial af fairs of that community are . managed. When we see a eity, county, or State burden ed with excessive taifi-'im" vutoir t).u h cVjrg eta Wight to be said of a peeple, however, who would thrust aside a man proven to be competent and faithful for one whose only recommendation is a pleasant exterior and oily manners t The city has bean presided over by two Mayors each of whom held "the reins of goveromeat three years in succession. The Administration of Mayor Hewson, we have no hesitancy in asserting, may safely be taken as a sample of what may be expected of Mr. Johnson if the city should be so un fortunate as to witness his election. We honestly believe this, for the same influen ces acd men that controlled and guided the clinr, .sf t n u : -u, cumu. ,o defeat Mr. Baker and secure the election of Mr. Jobneon. Besides, Mr. Johnson has never given evidence of possessing that fi nancial tact and energy which would lead us to place bis qualifications for that posi tion much above those ef Mayor HewsonJ 1 The taxes for 1856, Mr. Hewsen's iirst term, amounted to 59,845 42 ; the rat. of "uuu ueiuK one aouar ana nrtv cent an every one hundred dollars' worth of prop erty assessed. The taxes for 1859 Mayor Baker's first term was $51,54145; the rate being one dollar and five cents on every hundred dollars ; or forty-five cents per hun dred dollars less than ia 186. The whole amount of taxes was $8,303 97 less ' In 1859 than in 1856, although the wealth jf the city had undoubtedly" largely increased.

Is not this fact sufficiently clear to conviBCB the people whom they ought to support for Mayor if they regard tbeir own beat in terests? This may seem strange to soaae, when the difference in the amount of (axes levied as set forth in the report of the Clerk is only $3,530 16, but the difference cao.be accounted for by the large increase in value of the property of the city, which the report of the Clerk doe But take into considers- L, Uoa. For instance, nearly as much money was raised oo a levy of 80 cents on the hundred dollars Uut year, as was realized in 1858 on a levy of $1 05, bat the saving to the 'tax payers is the sam because the am burden ia divided among a much greater number. . Bat what went with the money ? - How was the $164,991 83 of taxes assessed dar ing Mr. Hewson's administration disposed of, and how baa Mayor Baker spent the $161,461 92 collected daring his term? We have examined the records in; the Clerk's office with some care, besides look ing through the city, and the following are the only permanent , improvements -made daring Mr. Hewson's term of three years of which we can find any evidence. -What we mean by permanent improvements, may be comprehended from the-table which we give below. The ordinary expenses of the city of coarse are not taken into considera tion. We find credited to Jf ayor Hewson's administration- Franklin Engine House, costing... $1,992 80 Union 2,549 97 Street Crossings.... 7160 117 60 1,238 37 198 00 7,408 82 leet street Calvert. City Lock-Up at Brushy Fond Ditch ) ft sewerage Total .....f 13,576 64 We find on the other hand the following items as credited to Major Baker's official term: "':' '" ' Sewers $32,298 07 School House - ... 20,000 00 Engine House (Lamasco) ......... 1,938 33 uecreaaa ta wharf bono......,... 6,380 00 . Total, ............. $60,614 40 Thus we see that while, in 1856, '57 and '68, out of a revenue of $164,991 82 only $13,576 64 were invested ia permanent city improvements; in 1859, '60 and '61, six'y thousand, six hundred and fourteen dot kxrs and forty cents were laid out in improve ments that will last for years out of a reve nue $3,530 16 less than that assessed dur ing Mayor Hewson's term. But it may be urged that the improvements credited to Mr. Baker are not all paid for. This may be true, bat we are assured that more bonds issue! daring previous administrations have been paid by Mr. Baker than those issued by him and now outstanding and unpaid. We commend the above facts to the tax payers of the city. We are aware that their passions acd prejudices have been ap pealed to in every shspe and form to induce tbem to vote ngniost Mr. Baker, bnt we cannot Ik- . it their prejudices will carry them so far as to induce them to do an act so prejudicial to their own interests. : We have given them facts and figures for their consideration, as they are found in the records of the city, which are open for their inspection if they think oar deduc tions are incorrect. - We doubt whether We say again, let the friends ' of good and economical government devote some of their time to secure the re-election of this valuable public servant- i Bnnkn V .
