BALTIMORE, Jane 6.-Judge Bowie, chief justice 2:

Stant decision under the civil rights bill, in the case
, of commonwealth against Somers for beating a
Snegro. It was contended by the counsel that ac- B
cording to the laws of Maryland a negro was not J
a cmpetent witness against a white man. The
Smagistrate decided that said law was null and j
void, having been abrogated and superceded by
0e the civil rights bill, and required bail, which Som
ers refused to give, and he was committed. Ap
plication was made to Judge Bowie for a writ of
it albeas corpus, which he declined to grant, giving S

ct WAsoTsoTON, July 6.--Mr. Fessenden, in the
Senate to-day, reported the tax bill as agreed
upon by the conference committee. The report
I1- gave rise to a considerable debate, especially the
to item fixing the tax upon cotton at three cents
ck per pound. The confereence committee of both
ad Houses agree to a tax of three cents on cotton.
and having agreed oa the minor amendments, the
bill now goes to he President.

ce fcrence committoo was qgr-ed to,but ý:au-d 4 su
debate. Mr. Saulsabry said he uricrto,.l thtl
when this bill came frwom the House the re was a
tax of 5 cents per pound on cotton. 'he cuom
smiLtn of w onhertences s ad reluced it to 3 cHrts. I
was glad of that ; but, considering the sitiation of
the people in that it.;on where cotton was grown,
reduced as they were to abject poverty, h crs ely
able t h get bread for t·hir families, unrepresented
in Congres, he thought ih t uSnjsi to singl e out olne
article of agriculture for taxation. Ile was totally
r opposed to taxing cotton, unles. other prlduct
oi the farm were tiaxee. The bill, as presented by
by the conference committee, was more favorabcl to
of the planters than as it cam frome the House, yet
the as the single artcle of cotton was selected of all
te agricultural prodats for taxation, he could not
vill vote for the bill.
Mr. Hendricks said the Senate was informed
early in the session by th proper departments ot
will the government that th itrdistion of the flonacer
rds lwas such as would allow very large reduction in
taxation. He was informed by Mr. Sherman that
the revenue from internal taxes might be reduced
$75,000,000. He hoped then to see a reduction in
s. thetaxes that bear upon the agricultural interests
of the country, but there wasno such relief. There
lay was an extraordinary tax on whisky, although he
)go, thought an experience of two years had shown
that that tax defeated revenue. He then spoke in
eret opposition to the cotton tax, and characterized the
to bill as unfavorable to the interests of he country.
o- Mr. herman said the agricultural interests were
ard better cared for than any other in this bill. Nearly
re all the burdens of the bill wore put upon wealth.
ell Articles of luxury were taxed heavily--agricul
rom tural implements were left free. Hle doubted the
and sincerity of Mr. Hendricks, when he said be did
ad not oppose the bill from any sectional spirit. It
would be within bounds to say that if Ohio paid
an- $10,000,000 of tax under the last bill, she would
ited pay bat $5,000,000 under this. Indians would pay
ty $1,000,000 or $2,000,o00 less under this than the
r former bill, and so of other States.
t Mr. Wilson spoke against the tariff bill now
tirt pending in the fotse. It was a Western measdre,
s" hlasseahusotta was e*tibtied with thie present tariff,
and he would vote against the bil if sent to the
Seatnte without modiicatifon. Masiachoseadth
protection enough. They had enough of this n
thing of potting on heavy taxes to protect iron
and other interests of Pennsylvania and the West,
and then charging it all to New England. V
Mlr. Hendricks would ask Wilson who was the I
author of the House tariff?
Mr. Wilson caid Mr. Morrill reported the bill, but b
men from the Northwest in the wool interest orig
inrted it. Whoever said the present tariff came o
from New England, said what was not true. P
Mr. Hendricks said that after the remarks of Mr. 1
SWilon !e felt sure the tariff bill would be defeated.
I le hoped it would. Ile would join Mr. Wilson in ti
0 !borin,' for its defeat. lHe would join with New c'
englaond in demanding a rervenue tariff that would
affird prodi-te'in enough rndeir the presentsystem
M. Wlr'con rsaid the high douty on wool 3ndd irron
