TI1ENE W HE VENUE DISTRICTS. At the last session of Congress a law was passed authorizing tbo President to consoli date contiguous revenue districts at his dis cretion, as it might appear expedient. This was a measure of reform, and its purpose was to cat down the immense for jg of revenue offi cers who are now living on the publio treasury, and thus effect a material reduction in the expenses of the Government. It is scarcely necessary to state that the execution of this law has been strongly resisted by the vast army of collectors and assessors who are under the direction of the Internal Kevenue Bureau, and all sorts of gerrymandering has been re sorted for the purpose of retaining certain individuals in office who would otherwise be obliged to earn their bread and butter in Some other fashion. It is not too much to say that the income tax has been continued mainly for the benefit of the internal revenue officers, and that the same influences that Lave been exerted to burden the people with an unnecessary and inquisitorial tax have prevented in many instances the law autho rizing the consolidation of the internal reve nue districts from being carried into effect as it should have been. The manner in which the consolidation of the districts in this city has been managed is an example in point, and is highly suggestive of the influences, the reverse of economical, that control in many important particulars the actions of the ad ministration. It was at first proposed to consolidate the First and Third and the Second and Fourth districts. By this arrangement one-half of the revenue officers in this city would have been retired to private life, perhaps to their immediate disadvantage, but certainly not to that of the public Under date of January 21, Commissioner Tleasanton wrote to Mr. W. S. Stokloy, Assessor of the old Second district, informing him of this arrangement, and notifying him that the exigencies of tho situation required' bis retirement from the internal revenue service. General Plea santon bore testimony to Mr. Stokley's faith fulness and efficiency as an officer, and re gretted the neoessity that existed for his exit from office. Mr. Stokley, for his part, ap pears not to have admired the arrangement in the least, and he has succeeded in pleading his case with such effect at Washington that we are now informed that the President, having reconsidered his first arrangement, has concluded to consolidate the First and Third districts and to permit the Second and Fourth to remain as they are. Tho impropriety of this arrangement will be apparent from an inspection of the following faots and figures: During the year 1870 the infernal revenue from the First district amounted to $2,910,305-47, and from the Third, $818,003-75, which would make the amount for the new First district $3,731,-309-22. In the Second district the amount collected was $ 1 , 7 14, G90 "CO, and in the Fourth $1,401,737-00. The total of tho two amounted to $3,11G,427-(JG, or considerably less than that belonging to the consolidated First dis trict. The tax on gross receipts has been abolished, and the income tax is likely to be, so if we deduct what they realized last year, under the presumption that the internal revenue for the cuirent year will be about the same as it was in 1870, the great impropriety of the actios of the President will be more than ever appa. rent. In the First and Third districts last year the tax on gross reoeipts and incomes amounted to $909,000, which leaves"$2,770, 80922 as the receipts from other sources. Tn the Second district the tax on gross re ceipts and incomes realized $911,000, which leaves the sum of $803,090 as the receipts from other sources. In the Fourth district the tax on gross reoeipts and inoomcs amounted to $073,000, which leaves $728,737 as the receipts from other sources. The in ternal revenue taxes in the Second and Fourth districts, less those on gross receipts and in comes, amounted to $1,532,327, or only a little more than one-half of what was collected in the consolidated First distriot. That this arrangement is a great wrong to the overburdened tax-payers i.-j apparent at a glance, as is also its why and wherefore. Mr. W. 8. Stokley desired to retain his position as Assessor of the Second llevenue district, and he had sufficient influence at Washington to induce the President not to carry out his original plan of consolidation. In other words, the Second and Fourth districts, with all their officers, are to remain as they are, although if united tbey would only do about half the business of tho new First distriot, in order that Mr. Stokley may be ablo to draw a good salary from the United States Trea sury. President Grant commenced his admin istration with many promises of eoonomy, and bis reputation as President rests pretty much on what he has done in that direction, but if be does not do better with the other revenue districts of the country than he has with those of this city, the people will begin to lose faith even in his economical principles. We lave no doubt but that the President had a vague idea that by retaining Mr. Stokley in offioe he would in some manner, benefit the Republican party in Pennsylvania, but we ean assure him that in this he has made a very great mistake. It is possible that Mr. Stokley might do some good service about election times, but the Republican party will be stronger if it can point to aotual reforms effected by Presi dent Grant's administration than it will be if it is forced to rely npon the electioneering talents of certain Federal office-holders; and the President commits a grievous blunder when he refuses to effeot a reform that will save thousands of dollars to the Government for the nake of Rtrenglhening the party by keeping certain individnals in office when their services might easily be dispensed with. WOMAN tiUFFllAGfl. Tin: most imposing demonstration yet made in the country in favor of female suffrage is the movement which has culminated in the minority report of the House Judiciary Com mittee, advocating the broad doctrine that women have a right to vote by the common law of England, and furthermore that "this right is included in the privileges of citizens of the United States, which are guaranteed by seotion 1 of article 14 of the amendments to the Constitution of the United States, and that female citizens, who are otherwise clas sified by the laws of the States where they reside, are competent voters for representa tives in Congress." It is true that a majority of the House Judiciary Committee unequivo cally condemned this doctrine, but the fact that a minority, consisting of burly Ben Butler and Representative Loughridge, have favored it, is no small feather in the eap of the female suffragists. They have tricked out their hobby in a semi-offioial dress at last, and they will now ride it harder than ever. We do not know thit General B a tier has been a special favorite with the ladies heretofore, as it is quite certain that Socesh damsels have not admired him overmuch, but he has now established such an irresist ible claim to the gratitude of the strong minded portion of the weaker sex, that if they do acquire the right to vote he will be enti tled above all other men to their suffrages when he runs as a candidate for President. Ben always did keep a sharp eye open for the main chance, and a controlling influence over half the votes of America is well worth look ing after. Even the colored vote will be cast into the shade by the proposed now consti tuency; and the only thing left now as a novelty is a soheme for making voters out of the school children and the babes in arms. The virtuous Josephs was severe on the newspapers yesterday in a reference he made to the Bteamship company bill. With lofty dignity he declared that the newspapers were wrong in censuring members for refusing to pass the bill under a suspension of the rules, and that if the newspapers wished business to be done in this hasty manner, he could not agree with them. It is astonishing how ab solutely Spartan the virtue of Josephs is, considering that his reformation is so recent. At the last session he was somewhat noted for doing a largo amount of business in just the very Btyle he now condemns with such lofty scorn. Circumstances alter cases, and it just so happened that the particular bill under consideration was likely to be made the object of "tricks that are vain" by the Josephs of tho Legislature in case it was re ferred to committee, and as there was' no good and sufficient reason why it ought not to pass without controversy, the newspapers of Philadelphia advocated it as a great publio measure in which every citizen of Pennsylvania had an interest. If it had been some little matter about salting the tracks, there would have been no great effort made to refer it; and if the virtue of Josephs would not permit him to vote for it, ho pro bably would just step out for a moment "to see a man," and thus avoid the neeessity of opposing it. The virtue of our friend J osephs can hardly be considered a first-class article; but then it is necessary to remember that he is a beginner, and it is scarcely possible for us to expect him to reach perfection until he has had more praotioe in playing the role of an immaculate legislator. The loweb branch of the State Legislature yesterday unanimously agreed to the appoint ment of a committee of six to superintend the printing of the wrappers for the Legisla tive Reoord. When the proposition was first made it was objected to as too small a matter for legislative supervision, but it turned out, on inquiry, that $13,888-00 had been paid for printing these wrappers in 1808, and $12,083 in 1809; that is to say, the State has been taxed about one hundred dollars for the wrappers used by each member of the House and Senate in sending Legislative Records to his constituents. The trae value of the paper and printing actually consumed for this pur pose would be muoh more nearly represented by an allowance of one hundred cents for each member than one hundred dollars, and tho extra ninety-nine dollars is made np mainly of pickings and stealings. Really, this is too heavy a percentage even for HarriBburg thieves ! They ought to be satis fied with charging the State ten dollars for what costs them one, and some people would even be satisfied with a bare profit of "one hundred per cent., and we are not astonished that a charge of one dollar for what costs about a cent has at last shocked even the dull legislative sense of justice and propriety. However, while Bergner continues to flourish at the State capital what can the people expect ? Congress yesterday agreed to modify the test oath so as to let up on the Rebels. Since the iron-clad guarantee against treason has thus been destroyed, it would be well to have additional guarantees against dishonesty and peculation creatod. Let each member swear, for instance, that he never ha's connived at, and never will connive at, a swindling mis appropriation of the publio money, and let him be punished for perjury by imprison ment, if it can be shown before a proper court that this oath has been violated. The people need at this moment, above all other things, better protection against robbery by their servants in Congress and in executive offices of various descriptions; and if any form of oath can promote this desirable end, it cannot too speedily be devised. We are safe enough against treason, for a time at least, but in perpetual danger of unnecessary taxation. , It ArrFAns by the report of the Philadel phia Gas Works IhRt it paid out about fdx hundred thousand dollars last year as wages to laborers, mechanics, men employed in laying mains, inlaying pipe, netting meters, etc, and to stokers and others employed in' manufacturing gas. It would be curious to know how much of thin money was used, in cidentally, to reward layers of political pipe, controllers of delegate elections and conven tions, etc; but the Gas Trust is too close a corporation to blab such secrets. The Empbkss Euoenih disdainfully and indignantly refuses to consent to the dis memberment of France. We scarcely know whether to laugh at her folly or to admire her plucV; but it is quite certain that the Germans will not take much pains to sooure her ratification of a treaty which is at onoo acceptable to them and endorsed by a French National Assembly. Eugenie and her son must take back seats, for tho present, with the Bourbons and Orleaaiuts, for, in a political sense, there are none left to do them reverence. Gamhetta still lives, if we may judge by the proclamation he is said to have issued on the 1st inst., calling upon the people of France to continue the instruction of their young troops and to resist a shameful peace. If verbal appeals could have driven away the stubborn Germans he would have Bent them whirling back over the Rhine long ago; but martial deeds, not words, are needed, and nothing short of a miracle can now rescue France from the unchallenged dominance of the invader. SINATOR HILL. The Flrnt Krcoimtrnrted Henntor from (irnraia lion. Joshua Hill, who was rjestcrday admit ted to a scat in the Senate, after a loop- period of tabulation, is a native of South Carolina, and was born on January 10, 1313. Ia 1857 he was elecUd a member of the House of Repre sentatives from the Seventh district of Georgia, by a majority of 275. lie was the candidate of the 60-called American party, his Democratic opponent being Linton Ste phens, the brother of Alexander H. Stephens. In 1859 he was re-elected, and during his second term, which expired on March 4, 1801, served on the Committee on Foreign Affairs. In January, 1801, ho withdrew from the House with his colleagues, on the secession of Georgia. He did not, however, take any part in the Rebellion, but suffered during the war a great deal of persecution on account of his opposition to it, while el ill maintaining his ground and refusing to leave his home. In 1800 he was appointed by President J ohm on to the position of Collector of the Port of Savan nah, for the acceptance of which he was thor oughly abued by the unreconstructed Rebels. On the 29th of July, 1808, he was elected to the United States Senate lor the term ending March 4, 1873, his competitor being ex-Governor Joseph Brown, and the vote standing 110 to 94. The action of the Legislature 60on after, in oustiug tho colored members, served to retard tho reconstruction process, and Mr. Hill failed to obtain his seat until yvstcrday", or more than two years and a half after his election. When tho State was taken in haHd by Congress, and again subjected to the reconstruction process, the election of Messrs. Hill and Miller to the Senate was Ignored, and In February, 1870, another set of Senators was elected, II. P. Farrow being selected for the term for which Mr. Hill had been elected. The Senate has, however, recog nized the first election as valid, aud only refuses Mr. Hill's colleague, Dr. II. V. Miller, a seat, be cause his political disabilities have not been re moved. Senator Hill will doubtless bo found acting in harmony with the Republican ma jority. OBITUARY. ItfV. Thomas II. feklnoer, l. D., 1,1 II. This distinguished Presbyterian divine died at his residence In New York city yesterday, having nearly completed his eightieth year. He was born near Harvey's Neck, In North Carolina, In March, 1791 ; graduated at Princeton College, New Jersey, In 1S09; and was licensed to preach the Gospel at Mor. rlstown, N. J., on the 16th or December, lfiia. On June 10, 1813, he was ordained and Installed pastor of the Second Presbyterian Church of thi3 city, as colleague to Dr. Janeway.

The Imme diate cause of his death is said to have been a severe cold, caught on the occasion of hla recent visit to this city, to participate in the funeral services of the late Rev. A lbert Barnes, his life-long friend, whose Illustrious pastoral career commenced, like his own, In Morrlstown, N. J. Dr. Skinner was a profound theological scholar, aRd contributed largely to the literature of the Chnrch.
