KDITORIAL OPINIONS OF THE LEADING JOURNALS UPON CURRENT TOPICS. OOMriLKD KVKRT DAT tOTi EVEMNO TELEGRAPH. The Rniao-Pruulan Alliance. from the Tribune. ConBlderable excitement has been produced all through Europe by au editorial article in the Tana J'rcsse, on tbo conclusion of an offensive and dofeuaive alliance between Trussla and Russia. The article speaks of the alliance, not aa something probable, but as an accom plished fact. The main point of the alliance is eald to be that Prussia will give aid to Russia, If the latter power, in undertaking to solve the Eastern question, should encounter any Other obstacle than the resistance of the Turks; while, on the other hand, Russia will assist Prussia, If any foreign power should step in to prevent the solution of the German question. The report of an, actual conclusion of the alliimce Is not yet confirmed by our advices from 8t. Petersburg and Berlin, but the bin guapeof the official press of botli Russia and Prussia, for several weeks, leaves no doubt that negotiations for such an alliance have been actively carried on, and that the best under tandiug existed between the two groat powers A recent nuinoer ot a Polisu paper asserted tua It knew, irom the most trustworthy source, tna Russia had offered to the Government ot U'-r lin 10 cede to Prussia so much of the territory it i he kingdom of Poland as lies we3t of the 1 Utula. provided Prussia consented to the :.mi"xatlon of Eastern Gallicia to Kus-ia, and jil nwedthe Cabinet of St. Petersburg ireedom ir the East. The Polish paper defies the ofli-c- I papers of St. Petersburg and Berlin to di it the report il they can. Tnm tar no denial br. 'been given. Ou the contrary, the cable !m- miormed us that the report of a failure of ? alliance is unlounded. 'he olliclal papers of St. Petersburg and Berlin hi nifid in open threats ot disintegration asrainst bo.h Austria and Turkey. An organ of the renin Government says, in plain language, that in consequence of the appointment of the Buron von Beust as Austrian Minister, Prussia will make haste to complete the work of German unity. The Russian papers, with equal plain ness, state that as the woik of German unity is hems cariied through under the lcadershin of Prussia, it is becoming that Russia should unler take the task of uniting all the Sclavi under the rule of Russia. Of all the many Sclavic tribes which are now governed by Austria, nons In terests the Russians more than the Ruthcnians (or Russinians) ot Oallicia. Tbey are more nearly related to the Russians than to the Poles; they have, encouraged by Russia, of late begun to emancipate themselves from the influence of the Poles; they constitute an actual, though opi re-t-ed, majority of the population of Gallicia. The Russian alreudy talk of the Ruthenians of Gallicia asaEusssian Venetia.and this sentiment spreads with great rapidity all over Russia. The interest that 1 taken in the annexation of the Buthenians to R issia U the more profound, as it will be the heaviest blow that has yet been struck at the Poles. Thus influences are at work at St. Petersburg and Berlin which irreprcssib.y push the two Governments towards an alliance and towards the further disintegration ot Austria. Though it may be dillicuit to lind out what result the negotiations for au alliance have thus far had, we believe it highly probable, and almost cer taiu, that the foimal announcement of the alliance will soon be made, and that poor Austria will, before the lapse of mp.ny months, find herself m the mWst of another war, with no hope whatever to tome out victorious, or to escape without large terntorial losses. The Democratic Party. From the T tmes. The Chicago Times, which has been for years the most zealous and unscrupulous organ of the Democratic party in the country, now urges that party to insist upon "impartial suffrage," which means negro suffrage, in the SDutuern fctates. ' Its reason for this measure is purely partisan: the negro question, It says, must be got out ol the way before the Democratic party can hope to regain its lost ascendancy; aud the only mode of getting it out of the way is by granting suffrage to the negro. Therefore the Times declares itself in favor of this measure. We have more than ouce alleged that the Democratic party sacrificed all public interests and measures to its own success; that it judgpd all policies and all principles by their bearing upon that speciie cad. It s.ipnimed President" Johnson, not that it cared a siraw tor him, but because it thought he mialit be made useful in rertopnc it to power. It professed to favor the Philadelphia Convention aud platform not lhat it cared lor either, but because they seemed to con, nun. (1 public confidence, and thus promised to be of senii-e in restoring the Democrats to oflice. So pi rtecilv palpable were the mnives ot the party in tb'n matter so openly indeed were th'-se motives avowed by their words and in their actions, that ihe people utterly refused to place any confidence in the party, and over whelmed it and its candidate with defeat. Now that the euine ot the Democrats has failed, the mink is thrown aside. Precedent Jonnson, having failed to help them ta power, is unuesitutiuuVv riptuliateil. and all pretence of fupportina liiui is discarded. The Chicago Times, the leading organ of the Democracy in the West, and fhe moi zealous champion ot the President's policy, now demands that th." Demo crats shall "cut oofMr(m the Administration of Andrew Johnson, aud leave that hybrid concern to float on the tea ot public contempt." This is noi the language which Democrats have lately been in the habit of u.sini towards th? President. The Times still concedes that his policy is right, and claims that iu supporting it "because ot its rigiiteousiies," the Democracy has exhibited "a patriotism who.-e purity was never excelled;'' but now thnt it has tailed to give them power, It holds that they shoull support it no longer. They must hunt up unother policy ono that wu'M Mve them votes and victory; and it hits upon 'Impartial sunrage" as just the thing for the occasion. We do not dream that the Democratic party will act upon any such advice. We leav the World to express the p iny horror at this be trayal of its principles, and this shameless espousal ot the leading heresv of its enemies. The World has been thrown "ir.to distressing spasms of shocked and iniiienant virtue already, by the suggestion that the 8otuh would do well to reeaiu its Hiatus in tue Union by so small a saeribce aa aiiootina the Constitutional Amend ment ; what will be its at'ouy on bndinz nesro Biillras! recommended to the South by a leading Democratic orean, as a Democratic measure, imagination fails to conceive. But the article of the Chicaso Times is signifi cant as betraying the absolute conviction ot the Democratic party of its own utter and tinal overthrow. It shows thai it ice's its defeat to have been complete and tinal. Us only chance of recovery i by taking the extremes! ground of the extremest radicals. Even this would not help it. The Democratic party could never be lirmiuht ta suooort negro suffrage wild n- thing approachiug nuauimlty, and the attempt wnnld onlv still turther disirust and revolt th great bodv of the people of all parties. It would roanlt. nrectselv as tiie attempt Ot the Democrats in this State did last year, when they adopted a Republican plat orm and nominated Repuhll. fun rnndidates upon it, in the hope of carrying the State. It matters very little what the imnriftta do: so.loug as thy do it as a party. tinder their old party organisation, with their i,i nrtv l"aders. aud for the avowed purpose of feeainin'-, their lost ascendaucy, they will never gain the public confidence essential to juccms. - v THE DAILY EVENING TnjEGRArn.PniLADELPIIIA, FHIDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 18G6. The Internal ftevenutt Commissioners' 11 port The Income Tai. From the Herald. Commissioner Rollins, of the Intornil Reve nue Department, is preparing his report tor the Secretary of the Treasury; and it is to be pre sumed that, in addition to a complete history of the working and condition of the depart ment, ho will recommend some modifications In the Internal Revenue law for the consideration of Congress. The opera'ions oi this law have been successful in an extraordinary degree In providing a vast revenue to the general Gov ernment; but at the same time it has been, and is now, more than ever oxcessively oppres sive upon the people. The most objectionable feature in the law is the income tax, an impost which enn, under any circumstances be only justified by its absolute necessity. Wow, the question arises, whether It I. any onger a necessity for the maintenance or tue Govern ment in view of the immense returns coming i.,?o the TreSwy, under all provisions of the Internal Revenue law, amounting to over a million dollars a day, and the large accumula tion in the Treasury, which amounts to hun dreds of million. It Is decidedly the popular opinion that no necessity exits for the continu ance of a tax on incomes. It involves in the lirst place a large expense to collect it. It is iraiigtit with difficulty in the collection, and is a constant source of nnnoyanco to the tax payers. It is Inequitable, too, inasmuch as it is in many cases interpreted in' favor of the man ot large means, and against the man who earns little more than o bare subsistence, out of which, beyond a certain limit, he has to. pay five dollars out of every hundred which he works hard to get; and lastly which is the strongest argument of all against the continu ance ot this obnoxious tax it is not required tor the expenses of the Government. The Internal Revenue law was enacted In time ot war, and the returns under it uow largely exceed the requirements of the Govern ment in time ot peace. The modifications made during the last session of Congress were inade quate to the changed condition of thinirs, and it is to be hoped that it will be altogether re modelled at the approaching session, and the lrrcomc tax abolished entirely. Every con ceivable thing which we use is taxed, frou a lucifer match to a pianoforte and the watch we carry in our pocket; from a silver spoon to a carnaire or a yacht. The bread we eat, every thing we drink, the medicines we are compelled to consume are taxed; the very doctor who pre scribes ihem, end who brings us into the world, is taxed in the shape ol a license, and the un dertaker who buries us after the nostrum, fail is taxed also; so that the Internal Revenue law follows us to our very graves, lucre would be no obiectiou to this system of taMn? early and taxiuz often if there was any necessity for it. No one complained ot high taxes during the war; they were paid cheerfully; but the opinion has taken strong bold ol the public miud that the present rate and method of taxa tion the income tax especially is not requi site for tue maintenance of a peace establish ment. It will be well for Commissioner Rollins to take these things into consideration when draw ing up his report, and also to make some reier ence, iu a comparative way, to the tariff. Though not exactly within the limits ot his department, yet, as a source of revenue, it bears somewhat upon the question he has to deal with. It should be a paramount duty ot the forthcoming Congress to reduce taxation in every shape to the minimum essential to carry ing on the Government on a basis of peace. They will not be doing Justice to the country if they overlook this important measure. Amnesty auil Pardon. From the World. The thirteenth section of the act of July 17, 1862, defining the penalties of treason aud insur rection, is iu the following terms: "The President is hereby authorized, at any time hereafter, by proclamation, to extend to poisons who may have participated in the existing Rebellion in any State or part thereof, pardon aod amnesty, with such exceptions, and at such time, and ou such conditions, as he may deem expedient for the public welfare." The power to grant pardons is conferred on the President by the Constitution, without any limit or restriction, and perhaps the authoriza tion contained in the foregoing section of the Confiscation act was superfluous. But evidently Cougiess did not think it so, or at least con sidered the question as open to doubt, or they would not have made such nu enactment. The power of the President to gtant pardons in indi vidual cases cannot be ahndeed by Cougress or questioned by anybody; but a general amnesty by proclamation previous to (rial or conviction, limy seem to have a difl'ereut character. In oie mode ot viewing it, it i a repeal of the law oidiiiuing the penaltiee. But the repeal of las, like their enuctuient, i3 pro perly a legislative function. By a stretch ol the oardouins power all criminal legislation might be deientcd by the extension of executive cle mency to tillotienders. Of course, the pardoning power wa3 never designed to be used lor such a purpose, but only to operate in exceptional ci.ses, wheie the regular course ol justice would be inexpedient. The termination of a rebellion is a case call ilia tor a wholesale deviation lrom the ordinary methods of criminal procedure. Congress, thcretoie, took care to relieve the President fiom any delicacy or doubt about trespassing on then prerogative ot lepealiug laws, by ex piessly authorizing him to pa: don by proclama tion, in advance of any trial, aud to any extent be might think expedient. Moou alter the close ot tbe war, f'usident Johnson exercised tuis power by publishing an amnesty which included the lank and tale of 1 he Rebel aiuiies, aud the ereat body ol the inhabitants of the Southern stales, but reserving lor separate and subsequeut coiifciiii rat ion certain enumerated classes, con sisting of officers ot rani and men of wealth. These he has since been pardoning at intervals ou ther own application: but it seems to us that the time has come when he ought to exempt himself from tho trouble an l annoance ot such applications by a new amnesty, including every body except the very few individuals who are to oe tried lor tieason. We cannot doubt that tho President intends. and the country expects, that all, or nearly all, ot the excepted classes w ill sooner or later be pariionen. ir tins is to be the ttnui result, tue sooner it is consummated the better. The per sons yet unpardoned aie tbe men of wealth, the men of enterprise, the men whose capital and business capacity are needed to reiiere the Hi uth from its industrial stagnation, and reno t its prosperity. How can these men put their pioHerty to prolitahle uses if they know not yvbetner it is meir owur now can ruevseii plantations or warehouses while the liability to confiscation prevents their giving a title? How can they uorrow money when the security thev would ofler is sub ject to the same liability? The great want ot tho Soum, tor tue revival oi us prosperity, is the introduction ot Northern or Kuropeau capi tal. But such ventures will not be made with out security, and the men who should naturally give it cannot hypothecate their property for the payment oi loans so lontr as they are unpar doned. The cases are all so nearly alike tbe crime la so precisely the same not diliering at all in nature and but li'tle iu degree, that there is no good teason why everv caae should receive a separate examination at tho hands of the Pre sideut. A new amnesty proclamation for tbe Immediate relief ol all ciaB.e is one of the fittest things the President could execute. Another reason for wetting the whole busi ness ot pardons off his handa is, ttiat it reudors tbe President obnoxious to damaamg chrge by his malignant and unscrupulous enemies. The tact that there is a great body of wealthy men who could afford to pay baudsomely for pardons, expohes b m to the suspicions ot the captiou. A situation which acorruptroan would naturally covet, and could easily turn to great profit, is one in bich an honest man should not wlsli to be placed; and. yetja the present case, it is one which it requires n ore coursse ro abandon than to hold.- Ir the Present had, at any time previous to fhe elections, oabliched such an amnesty ss we now recommend, the radicals viould have pursued Lim with a unlay line and cry tor his leniency to Rebels. But 'tbe time when such an outcry could do nv mischief is past, an t tl.e President ought at oute to rollee himself lrom all the embarrass ments resulting from applications for individual pardons. They consume his time to no purpose; they delay the revival ol Southern prosperity; and they afford occasions to hts enemies to charge upon him abuses which may be practised by the intercessors ihiouch whom pardons are sought- He can act, in most cases, only on the representations of others, and it is impossible that he should know lhat. their services have Hot been bought. The very possibility of a brokerage ot this kind, of which ho can know nothing. Is a sulllcient reason for setting the radicals at defiance, and precluding all applica tion by a complete amnesty. We deem it important thnt he should publish such an amnesty now, before the meeting of Congress, lest that body should repeal the sec tion above quoted, and then deny the authority of the President to takf any further action. The radicals want to keep the remaining cases, as the only means they nave left of terrifying the South'lnto a ratification ot the pending, or some more obiectionnble, Constitutional amend ment. Tho President should piomptly take this weapon out of their hands. Ills authority to do so now is undoubted and incontrovertible, for Congress itself has ex- fiessly conferred It. If that permission should be repealed at the beginning of the session, his authority would be open to question; and if, after a repeal, he should act it manifest de fiance of the will of Congress, tbey might make it a ground of impeachment.
