?fffllTtrr* ok THE TAX LAWK
Below tlio first instalment of pcYeral
Ihousinii names of prominent New-Yorker*
wj,o, bfiRf ass-ssed ?PO* th* ir pt rsnnal prop?
erty, have shown to the satisfaction of the
Tax Commissioners, that, under the provisions
the iiiiincmiis ami conflicting; laws of thi?
ll hj and Nation, they do not 1? -jrriliy owe
gay jMTsonal tax. This list will he continued

,,f tho taxpayer* who accept the -s

Tinier the laws of the Stale of New-York the
issessnic.it and taxation of |'fsm,a) proper! v me
nnder u very dilten nt svlnn frmn that employed
in usx^siiu: real estate, und it happen * t hat the hur
cVn of taxation falls largely on realty, while por
MMialtv in a great measure escapee. The basis< t
Bs.essnu nt in real esinte is s() fixed and di finite
that an equitahle assessment is possible. More
r.ver. thr> possession of real estate cannot
bj eono-al ??!, since the Register's boohs ol
i!e?da reveal both the own -rsbip and probable
vain" of ?11 real estate, Personal proper! v on t hp
rtl.iv haml < annul he assessed upon ?in* thing like a
fcaewi or lix?-d value. It is half " guess work."
It is easy ajap to rom-oul tin poreeesion of it. since
m>' rVOB the tnv-sathcror can enter one's house tn
ranke inventor) of one'i ?ll'ects, or compel dis
lasreri <<f one's business nfttirs and l?ook?. Hut.
fin flier, the liws which do not exempt real estate
df individuals in any particular, do exempt per
t.o.il property for a dozen or more cansc*. The
cbii f eh" pm af personal property thus exempt are
as follows:
!. f ii-ign capital of ngeiits here.
II. Foreign vessels.
III. Mo k of iucoi ;>orat?d mpanies lialdc for
taxation on their capital.
IV. Prodarta ai other States sohl her-?, if the
proceeds are relui ned to other Stales.
V Honds.
VI. Mori cages.
VII, Proanaeory antra,
VIII. Bow da. moriL'.ices nnd notes af non-r?si
deate eeal to thia State for eaUeetl m,
IX. Capital luTeatad in loans In other states
ttpoa sceuntns held hy noti-resident
aawaaa
\. Tinted States bonds.
\ l. Untied Stated Tien.- urv notes.
Ml. National bank shares.
Mil. Propeitv of pne?ts and ministers to the
value ol SI ..-old.
X'V. Savings deaoaite due depositors.
XV. A'ciinnila!ions for Um bucht of insured
pereaai ia Ufa laaaraaee companies.
It will he seen tliat niativof the persons in the
lit below escape the assessment under some one or
ntote of these manv cl iuses of the laws. They are
at p"tfeet liberty, morally as well as legally, to
claim exemption, as the laws now stand : and it is
primarily the laws which are at fault m fiiruisliing
so man v loopholes for ess-ape.
1 hen appears to l?e tin impression that some de?
gree of odium attaches to the fact of "swearing
off" o.h-'s personal tax. as if implies concealment
pi the truth nnd deception of the Tax ('om?
ni >ssion'>rs. Such is nof the fact. Il is ihe general
opinion of the present Commissioners that the
('?inn of exemption is not really put for?
ward iu as many cases as the laws author
i. I and that many conscientious men
pay large assessments when tliey could legally
claim that, though ow..ing the personalty assessed,
HsV) ar- legally nn taxable upon it. The ease of the
Hea, William E. Podge is cited ns an illustration.!
II was assessed on $.?00,000, which largely ex- !
et sded his personal property, but he voluntarily
paid on $.>0.000. though puttinp, forward, merely
as a matter of record, that he whs wholly and
pajallj ixetnpt from nnv nAscssment what
i\.r. WMliam H. Vanderhilt pays this year
d:i f.MKl.OOO of personal property, which he
doubtless owns in hors.ss, palatines, furniture and
:>thei personalty, hut the Commissioners recognize
thtit if he chose haftaaaat eat tae Itajal construction
if the law he would he wholly exempt. Doubtless
the lists to follow will show numerous other, though
i t each (.daring illustrations ai the inconsistencies
sf 1 tie tax laws as they now htand unreformcd.

Till YKAlt <?F II0B8,
From the time of tbeflfs/anlntkrn of flic Anicri
run Anti-Sluvry Society ia lSH'l. to tlie end of tlio
following year, tho anti-slavery agitation prcw
moie and nmre intciis;-. until ut last it arrc-ted tlie
attention of tin* whole country. 'I lie Liberator
in Unstop, ::"(! Lmanripntor in New-York had

out ijs agents ami sealt. i ing its tracts and other

ministen here ami ihere ventured to prearh iigninsl

indeed iu smaller places as well. Anti-slavery ineoi -

gaiiixed ami to k part iu them, hut upon tho Abo?
litionists, who, it WM allege 1, p.Tsiste I in jlaoiaj
iug a subject with which they had no right t> it,
lenneildle. The enemies of tlp-calls.i fli)|ieared to
be mull r th" ill It'simi that it could btj CTBSbad <ni*
by asrmeatioti and violence; that the men who had
undertaken the abolition of slavery were so wanting
in courage that they would fl y from the liold M MTV
their property and their persons troin harm, 'these
men had somehow contrived to read the lessons of
hisluiy backwards, imagining that the way to stop
a conflagration was to pour oil upon tho tlames!
Such was the state of things at the IstdJIUIllagof
the year l is.t.", wbieb has often be.-n deeeribedaa
picei.iiiieiitly the " mob year" in the history of the
cause. True tba pin-duvcty mobs licit Ipt begM
nor ended within that j'ear, b it they were more
numerous then than at any previous or subseipieiit
time. Tho social, ecclesiastical n-id cnminercial
pressure brought to boai upon leading Atjulilinnisis
during that year was tremendous. Arthur Tuppan,
cspocially, was beset by leading tin roipna* and
moneyed men, presidents ot banks and insurance
companies, and by influential mcinb-rs of the
churches, who besought him, bv his regard for his
public ami private reputation, as well as for Ills
business intercuts, to resign the rflh e of President
af the American Anti-Slaver}* Society and withdraw
himself from the agitation, " You ask me," he said
in reply, "to betray mv principles, to be false to
God and buiiNiinty. I will be hanged drat P The
BaTi Banne!J. May, wh?esitting aaoatlrt platforn
at tbo anuivi rsary of the American Anti-sl .y. iy
Society in 183.*?, was called to the door by a paitu-r
in one nf tho most prominent inercanlilo houses in
New-York who said to him, "Mr. May, we arc not
such fools as not to know that slavery is n great
evil, n great wrong. Hut it was. mean ted to by tin
founders of our republic. It was provided for in
the Constitution of onr Union. A grcut portiouof
tbo propertv of the Southerners is invested under its
sanction; und the business of the North as well as
the South has become mljiisaa-1 to it. I In re uro
millions upon millions of dollawrduc from Southern?
ers to the merchants and mechanics of New-York
nlotie, the payment of which would be jeopardized
by any rupture between tho North und the
SoikIi. Wo cannot afford, sir, to let yon
and your associates succeed in your endeavor to
overthrow slavery. It is not a matter of principle
with usi it Is n matter of business necessity. We
cannot afford to let you succeed ; and I have eellod
you out to l.-t yon know, nnd to let your fellow-la?
borers know, that we <)?? not mean to allow pop to
succeed. We mean, sir," said he with increased
emphasis,?" we mean, sir, to put you Almlii km iota
down?by fair means if we can, by foul means if
we must." [Mr. May's " Kecollcetlons," p. 27,
Beyond all doubt, this merchant expressed tho
feelings and purposes of Ids class. Tho virus of
slavery ut thut day poured In a strong
tide through every uvcuuo of coinmerco be?
tween tho North und tho South. North?
ern men, many of them prouiiuent ia the
church and liber ?1 contributors to benevolent socie?
ties, took security for debts owed tlu-m nt tin?
smith in the ship-? of mortgages upon the "slaves
and souls of men," and in caso of foreclosure, sold
the human chattels and put the pftSOeeda In their
pockets, with as little feurof censure as they w ould
have experienced in selling so many sheep or swino.
In many instances such men occupied the most el?
igible pews in churches, and frowucd upon minis?
ters if they even dared to pray in public for the
slaves. In Northern colleges tho whoii power of
faculties and trustees WM exacted to prevent agita?
tion among tho students. In some of these col leges
were bodies of Southern young men, who Btood
ready to display the " manners of the plantation"
upon such of their fellow-students as dared to
whisper a word against tho divinity of slavery,
rublisucrs at tho North, in reprinting Lnglish
books, erased from their paean tip- pa-sages likely
to give offcticn to tbo trailkkois iu human flesh.
Even the American Trait Bot ety and tba Metho?
dist Book Concern engrtged iu this work of
mutilation, and hardly had the grace to be ashamed
of it when they wore exposed. At the very time
when slavery wus thus obtruding Itself into every
Noitiiein ltiter.-rtt and relation, ilcnuiii'ling of us the
meanest of all services iu its bohalf, we were told
that it was none of our business, and that tbe
discussion of tho subject was nothing less than
treason against the (Jovcinniciit.
Tbe rpiritof the South at this titns is indicated in
the following paragraph from Tht jftsaaaead \\ h>g,
one of the most rvspcctablu and influential journals
of that section:
LM the bc*J haaiaa nt fie North beware. Let them
not feel too much security in tiu-ir homes, or imagine
that they who throw tnhfeBde, ultliouuh from, us they
think, so safe a dlstu., vv.ll he pernillte.l to eseapo
with impunity. There nro thousands now animated
with a spirit to brave every danger to briug these felons
to Justice on ihe soil or the Poutheiu (States, whose
women und children they ban dared to endanger by
their hed-concocted tdota. We have feared that la?aa>
ern exasperation would seire mune of the prime eouspir
a tors in their very beds, aud drag them to meet the pun
Ishment drte thetr offence*. We tear It no longer. We
hope li BMPJJM so, and our applause aa one uiau shall
follow tho successful enterprise.

"At the approa? fling statt d meeting of the Pres?

Several other Northern Abo!itioni?ts were honored
in a similar way, and lite |ppj of |mgam utum burned
fiercely. In ?laich. 1KI."?, the Noycs Academy in
Canaan, N. II., was opened tor the n option of

been required oa the score of principle us well as
courtesy. Seeking the abolition of slaveiy, not by
external force, luit by appeals to the reason and
judgment as well as the conscience of the masters,
the Abolitionists desired nothing so much as to
have their movements fi oroiigiily understood at
the South. They would glui'lv have sent thither liv?

possible, persuade them, not only for tbeil own

pecuniary interests, to give freedom to their bond?
men, lu the beginning, indeed, it was their ho|ie
that tho Southern people would shortly become
reasonable enough te permit, if not to invite, tho
presence of such agents. Meanwhile, t he least 1 hat
they could do was to aetid their puhlicul u ns to men

obtained from private sources. This they ?lid
openly, availing themselves of the p >-lal *? rvice of,
the United M ites. Not one of then doriiinente was

they had nothing to say, sum i.treat him never
to attempt to redress his wioni,-s by violence, but

In the Summer of ISRR, large psnPAtittse fitmwkm
slaveiy puldicatioiis were sent thnuigh the mails
to citizens of the South, from the aiiti-slavciy othce
in New-Vork. A tremendous excitement in that
putt of the country was the cons? ?luenee. If. in?
deed, the Society had furnished every sla\<> with it
hawie-knife, and advised him to cut his. muster's
throat therewith at the earliest possible moment,
the rage of tho South could hardly have bc.-u
greater than it was. The documents were pro?
nounced incendiary, and though they were ad?
dressed exclusively to white men, and generally to
the foremost slaveholders, it .Il\ assumed, at
the North us well as at the South, that they ajepp
intended lo excite an insurrection and deluge the
South in blood! Fresh torrents of mteswagBOePj*
tat ion and abuse were I hereupon heaped iijmiu tho
heads ot the Alxdi ionists, whose voices of explan?
ation and protest were drowned in a worse than
Niagara roar of calumny. In Charleston. 011 tho
29th ot July, the post-.-llice was broken epoa by a
mob, and the iiuti-slavitv puhlicul ions that had sc
cumulated therein, and w hu h tho postmaster hud
obligingly icft in a pile for I he coin cnieiice of tho
rioters, were taken out and burned in ihe presence
of mi exultant crowd, shortly altei ward a public
meeting was held to deitotim e the " incciidariee* of
the North, ami to complete the work of the mob by
(circling out and punishing any Abolitionist, or

poem entitled " Ch ru al Oppressors," a few stuuzsa
of which are here copied :?
