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
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

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

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
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.
