It will be devoted to the interests of the Grand Army of the Republic, and will pay particular attention to naval and mili tary matters. It is octavo in form, is filled with excellent reading matter, and presents a good typographical appearance. WE HOPE none of oar readers will fail to read the correspondence on the Poor House question in this issue. We hope to lay other communications before them on the same subject from various parts of the couDty. We prefer that the people shall discuss it for themselves as far as possible, and we are glad that a beginning has been made this week. • 11,657,793 39. The Secretary of the Treasury reports the above amount as the payment on the national debt for the month coding April 3ntb, and *67,933,066 82 as the sum total of the reduction of the national debt since May Ist, 1869. Such figures are the strong est recommendation that can be given as to the integrity and ability of the Republican administration. REDUCTION OF TAXES.— It begins to be definitely understood that all the internal taxes, except on tobacco and whiskey, and the stamp duties and incomes, will be abol ished. The income tax will bring out a spirited contest in which the tax will most likely be retained and the rate reduced to three percent and the exemption raised to *2OOO. This would then be the most easi. iy borne of all the interna! taxes, as it would not faL upon more than 100,000 people out of our 40,000,600, and they would all be of the wealthier classes, on whom it would be a very light burthen. THE Gazette denie3 that the western people horned their corn far fuel under free-trade, and charges that it was done un der the present tariff. We have always given the Gazette credit for a reasonable amount of intelligence, hut it certainly has not forgotten that the burning of corn for fuel in the western states occurred before tho war, under Jimmy Buchanan's adminis tration and a comparatively free trade rate of duties. Neither can it hare forgotten that the present tariff was not enacted until more than a year after the rebellion had began and that grain was one of the first things to rise in price. The Gazette there fore is wofully ignorant or deliberately false in its statement in rertrd to this matter. It can take whichever horn of the dilemma it likes. We told the truth and the Gazette knows or ought to know it Free trade has always reduced the price of all kinds of agricultural productions unless in times of famine or war. We now make the assertion that a comparison of prices will show that the average price of grain for a succession of years has always been higher under a protective than under a free trade or revenue tariff, when there has been no out-side disturbing influence, such as for eign wars or famines. It is clear to the mind of every sensible man, tLat the pro tection that boilds up home manufactures and gives employment to large numbers of laborers must make good Lome markets. They know :l here from practical experi ence, ever since our Broad top eoal region has been developed, and they now declare it every day in their anxiety to have fur naces bui It and the iron ores of our ('uanty worked in our own neighborhood. THE NATIONAL GUARD OF PENN SYLVANIA. The supplemental military act of the late session of the legislature styles the active militia of this Commonwealth, "the Nation al Guard of I'cnneyhalua." At the breaking out of the late rebellion, tho patriotic response of the arms-bearing j-ortion ofour people completely disbanded all existing military organisations and con verted the militia-num into the disciplined soldier, the thoroughly tried veteran. There is not a county in the Commonwealth that could not, if called upon to day to guard the national honor, fill its quota with acrom pilshed soldiers, who learned the stern les sons of war in actual service, and whose discharges are their diplomas of honor as graduates from bloody fields. Of such ma tcrialwati the new military organizations of l ~* ® ute oow being, in good part constitu ted—schooled soldiers, organising to prac tice the discipline and drill, tha military knowledge already acquired, that they may be prepared again to respond to any call that may be made upon them, to meet any emergency that may demand their service, whether it be to prevent or repel invasion, or to suppress insurrection, tumult or riot "h great propriety, therefore, does the new law style the active militia of our Com monwealth, as now being constituted, the -\atioHal Guard of Prhnzylcauia" —and as contra-distinguished from the compara tively undisciplined organizations of the old ' uni/ormed militia" pf this and other Bfa'-.—TV-. r n ~' r% THE CESS*A BILE, Hon.

K tILROAD AID Mf*lH PKOS PECTS OF VIKGIJIIA, Virginia is among the first of the States to receive the impetns of the wave of immi gration now rolling southward; and at this time, her material prospects • fast bright ening. Travellers through the State de scribe a large percentage of the passenger travel on her railroad trains as being com posed of incoming settlers and those who are prospecting over the country with a view to purchase. Her large land holders have reversed the old policy, and arc now willing and even anxious, to sell their estates in small or large tracts, and are extending a cardial webrme to the immigrant, whether from the Northern States or from Europe. Thousands of acres of the best agricultural lands on tbe continent are daily changing hands, and the territory of Virginia is fast filling up with an industrious and thrifty I class of yeomen. The mineral wealth of Virginia, although known as far back as the Revolution, is just beginning fo be appreciated. The iron work" ers of Pennsylvania, whose ore-beds are every year becoming more expensive to work have been securing large tracts of valuable ironbearing lands, in the region between the Blue Ridge and the Greenbrier river. There is an area of 20H miles in width by 120 in length, through the middle of which pascss the Chesepeake and Ohio Railroad, which, probably contains iron enough to supply the United States for the next thousand yearn Beyond it, in the Kanahwa Valley, are de posits of coal especially adapted for iron smelting and steam purposes, upon which a thoosand years demand will leave scarcely an impression. The extension of the Chesa peake and Ohio Road is now building through this valley. With her system of internal communica tions completed, Virginia will be able to reach with iron bands, northward, to the lumber and grains of the Lakes. Westward, to the Mississippi, with its stores of provis ions, and southward, to the cotton fields of Tennessee and Arkansas. She will then be enabled to unite upon her own soil, the va rious elements for great agricultural and manufacturing eminence, and be raised in her activity, as she is already politically among the progressing labor-inviting Staets- The Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad, which for many years received the support and aid of the State, is rapidly being completed from its terminus, at the White Sulphur Springs, to the Ohio River. Upwards ot 6,000 men are at work on the line. Messrs. Fisk k Hatch, the reliable Bankers of New Yok, who are the Financial Agents of the Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad Company, report very satisfactory sales of the Loan. The Bonds as will be seen by their announce ment elsewhere, are still to be had at the same rate, and exchanges of other Securi ties for these Bonds arc made at the best [ market rates. CORRESPONDENCE. Hon John Cessna. In February last, the Republicans of Bedford County, Pa. assembled in Mass Meeting, and, among other things, unani mously recommended the gentleman whose name heads this article "to the Republicans of the District for re-nomination." This, viewed merely in the light of jus tice, is nothing more than they were bound to do according to paity custom, usage and procedure. But, underlying, or over and controlling the assemblage, was the graver and more important principle that, in this age, honesty and moral worth, together with ability, efficiency, decision and energy of character, owing to their firm hold on the public miod, demand their due appreciation and cannot be disregarded with impunity. Genial Jack Cessna, as he is fondly called bv those who love him most, althongh a new member, is quietly, but certainly, mak ing his mark in Congress; and the heads of the various Departments of the government acknowledge his great worth hy the de ference and respect they show him. They know full well that he is working zealously and successfully foT the welfare of the great party that now controls the political inter ests of the country. The people of his district have great reason to be proud of their Representative. I hope they fully appreciate his worth. He deserves, and should receive, the friend ship, good-will and hearty support of every one. Reared a democrat—a recognized leader in the democratic party—enjoying high political favors at its giving—obtaining and retaining a no common celebrity among politicians and statesmen everywhere—pos sessing the rare quality of adapting himself to every class of mind, and by his eloqnenoe, tact, and power, commanding alike the learned and the unlearned, he was a rapidly rising man in the party which, ere its over throw, ruled the country almost to its ruin. When the rebellion came, and the prin ciples of human freedom were assailed by physical force, the energy of the man be gan to folly develop itself, and his amazing practical power to be felt. He joined the Republican Party. Honest and patriotic, he could Dot do otherwise. It was not in bis nature to falsify his past record; and therefore, with an honesty that was prool against the blandishments of power and the plottings of demagogues, he yielded a cheerful obedience to the law of moral ac tion which is inseperably connected with the highest usefulness of man to man— threw himself into the breach, and stood among the foremost in resistance to the wily and menacing doctrines and despotic acts of those who would have ruined the government and its institutions, and reared in their stead the unhallowed temple of a corrupt party. We have thought, and still think there is much in the individuality of Mr. Cessna, calculated to impart instruction to tho young Statesman and politician. A modest simplicity—an unvarying sincerity—reliance on Provide coo—a manly assumption of trust—faithful execution of duty, and a foil 'emembraooc of all the relative duties of life, make up bis character, and establish his oomraanding worth, im perishable as honor itself. These are attributes well befitting a christian Statesman and pelitusiao; and be who has such a foundation to rest the superstructure of his political aspirations upon, will not be found ''wanting when weighed in the balance." Poeacasing these attributes, we never find John Cessna trencluog upon right— never detect him in sacrificing his manhi>od —forsaking consecrated truth, justice, and right, nor abandoning the principles livid down fur bis own government To these attributes, in a high degree, we must at tribute the unvarying success which mails the political career of this gentleman. True, this success has not been obtained without a struggle. The friends of error and wioog ate at all times powerful, and deal tasty blows; and when he ficd from the party whose natural balance is the practical re pudiation of aU that is great and good, while it falsely claims for itself superior virtue, he was maligned, his motives questioned, his character assailed—his vir tue defamed, and time and again he was subjected to the scurrility of political black guards who make slander a part of their profession. Nor was this all. Interested partizans too, for selfish purposes, did what they could, safely, to crowd down and keep back the man whom they should have hailed with joy and nphcld with might. But all this proved to be no "lion in the way," and Mr. Cessna has gone heedfully but boldly ahead, coming forth from the trial as gold with twice his former value, and with a consciousness of power to which he was before a stranger. If he bear subsequent trials with the same spirit, and follow resolutely in the path of upright duty, and, (judging his future by his past,) we have no doubt he will, then, every question of his advanc ment is forever settled, and settled in his favor. Men are thinking beings, and not raeic pieces of mechanism —or, what is I little better-, the mere creatures of habit or ! slaves of custom. They compare those to whom they delegate trust and power, as re gards their end and aim, to the good which is likely to flow from a general exercise of that trust and power and if after making due allowance for the fallibility of human nature, they see that the common weal will be promoted by the actions of their public servants, the disappointments of the place hunter, jealousy, personal hatred, tbe plot ting of faction, and intrigue, will not be al lowed to violate and crush out the high re gard in which they hold those servants; but, that power behind the throne, and which is greater than the throne—the people, uniting at an altar of common in terest, will throw around their worthy ser vants the mantle of their protection, and defy the envious, and the disaffected, to do them harm. To specific facts in the political career of Mr. Cessna, we have not alluded in this paper. We did not intend to do so. But, with your permission. Mr. Editor, we will, at some future time, refer to them in detail for the information of those of your readers who have not had the opportunity of knowing fully the history of him who so ably represents them in Congress. BONA FIDE. New Oxford, Adams Co. XLlst CONGRESS-SECOND SESSION. In addition to the questions which have been agitating Congress the past few months, the following other business was disposed of during the past week. SENATE. —WASHINGTON, May 4.— The House concurrent resolution for adjourn ment *>W die July 4 was discussed—a motion to table it having been rejected, 15 to 14— until the expiration of the morning hour, when it went over. Mr. Morrill, of Maine, from the Commit tee on Appropriations, reported a joint resolution to amend the act of April 20, 1870, relative to deficiencies for earn ing out the reconstruction laws. Passed. The calendar was then taken up when the following bills were passed: To aid the construction of the Oregon branch of the Pacific Railroad. Authorizing the Southern Minnesota Rail road to connect its line with the Northern Pacific Railroad. For the relief of pre-emption settlers in Nebraska. House joint resolution to pay the widow of the late General Rawlins one year's salary as Secretary of War. To allow the settlement of the accounts of disbursing officers of the army and navy. To define the intent of the act to allow deputy collectors of internal revenue acting as collectors of internal revenue, the pay as such. ' House bill to amend the bankruptcy act relating to its operation in territories. A joint resolution donating .condemned cannon to the McPheraon Monumental As sociation was passed. Mr. Conkling introduced a bill to incor porate the International Society of the United States for the protection if immigra tion. Referred to the Judiciary Commit tee. Mr. Harlan moved to take up the bill for the sale of the Great and Little Osage In dian Reservations and the removal of the Indians to tho Indian Territory. Messrs. Ramsey and Howe insisted upon proceeding with the special order, the Frank ing bill. Mr. Harlan's motion prevailed, but pend ing consideration of the bill the Senate went into executive session, and soon afterward adjourned. THE OSAGE INDIAN RESERVATION. The House Osage Indian Land bill came up in order. Mr. Morrill, of Me., moved to take up the Legislative, Executive and Judicial Ap propriation bill. Mr. Edmunds made an ineffectual effort to get up the bill to enforce the Fifteenth amendment. Mr. Howe argued that the Franking bill should take the precedence, and several Senators insisted upon adhering to an al leged noderstanding on the previous day to take up Mr. Morrill's bill. The Osage Indian Land bill was then pro ceeded with, the question being on the amendment of Mr. Ross, to take the land from the Indians at twenty cents an acre, and give them to certain railroads in Kan sas at specified sums, giving settlers on the reservation the right to purchase one hundred and sixty acres each at f 1 25 par acre. Mr. Morrill, of Maine, spoke against the bill, the passage of which, he said, would be a legislative scandal. He moved to recom mit the bill, with instruction to report a bill for the removal of the Osage Indians to the Indian Territory and the sale of their reser vation for cash, as other public lands are disposed of. The bill was laid aside without action, aod the bill to abolish the franking privilege came up as the special order. . Mr. Stewart moved to pass over the bill, in order to take up the next special order— the bill to enforce the Fifteenth amend ment. Mr. Ramsey called for the yeas and nays, which were ordered, and the motion was lost—yeas 25, nays 30. Mr. Morrill, of Vermont, moved to pass over the present business aod proceed with the Legislative Appropriation bill. Carried —26 to 21. Adjourned. The bill granting a pension to Mrs. Lin coln was discussed by Messrs. Trumbull and Sumner favorably, and Mr. Edmunds id op position, the latter gaying the Committee on Pensions would report a bill accompanied by evidence upon which Senators could form their judgment this week, and was then laid aside. Mr. Sherman reported favorably upon the bill to authorze the settlement of the ac count* of officers of the army and nary __ Mr. Trumbull reported adversely oa the bill prescribing the rules of evidence in cer tain cases; also, with an amendment the bill to amend the bankrupt law; also several bills on the same subject with a recommen dation that the/ be indefinitely postponed. Mr. Drake introduced a bill to promote the greater efficiency of the navy and regu late pensions in the navy and marine crors, and for other purposes. Mr. Harris introduced a bill for the relief of the inhabitants of the city of Black Ilawk Colorado. Thyoint resolution appropriating $25,000 out of the funds of the Freedmen's Bureau for the benefit ol the Wilberforoe Universi ty was discussed and land over. BILLS PABSED. Changing the place of holding United States COUI ts in .the Northern District of Mississippi. For the survey of a railroad route on the west bank of the Potomac river near Georgetown to Harper's l'erry. The Omaba and Northwestern land grant bill. Mr. Conkling submitted a report from the Census Conference Committee and in reply to questions, made a statement to show tnat the compensation provided for the census takers was alike adequate in the populous and sparsely settled districts. The report was adopted. The bill limiting the.number fspecial agents of the Treasury Department to fifty* three and fixing their compensation was amended and passed. NORTHERN PACIFIC KAIBOAD HILL. The Senate bill authorizing the Northern Pacific Railroad Company to issue its bonds for the construction of the road and to se cure (he wtme by mortage, comming up, Mr. Wfceetar raovod to put the bill on its passage and addressed the House in advo cacy of it. Mr. Ha winy proposed to offer an amend ment requiring all the land granted to the company to be sold to actual settlers only, and in quantities not greater than one hun dred and sixty acres to any person, and for a price not exceeding two dollars and a half per acre, and made an argument in support of that proposition. Mr. Wilsou of Minn., opposed the amend ment, and denounced the bill and the land grant system as wrong in principle and an outrage on the taxpayers. This road bad already received 45,000,000 acres of public land, and this bill proposes to give it 2,250,- 000 more. He supposed, however, that it would be passed, for he thought he saw in that provision of it which required Ameri can raits to be used in the road, a combina tion between land speculators and Lifb pro tectionists, and he estimated that Mr. Wheeler, Chaiiman of the Pacific Rairoad Committee of the Whole on the Tariff bill, leDt his aid to that combination. After some further discussion Mr. Wheel er demanded the previous question, which was seconded —78 to 59, excluding all the amendments. Mr. Stiles moved to lay the bill on the ta ble. Negatived—yeas 58; nays 85. Dilatory proceedings were continued there after until 4:50 when, by a vote cf 76 to 67, the House adjouancd to Monday. GEORGIA. Mr. Wells, from the Committee on tLe Decline of American Commerce, reported a bill authorizing the mail steam-hip service from New Orleans, monthly, to Tampico, Vera Cruz, Tobasco, Sisal and Ha vain, Recommitted. Mr. Lawrence offered a resolution oalling on the Secretary of War for all reports made by Brevet Major General Terry relating to Georgia, not ntready communicated to con gress. Adopted. The Civil Service bill was discussed by Messrs. Finkelburg and Cobb, of New Ctro lina, in its favor, and Messrs. Mavnard, Pe cets, Bingham and l'ayne in opposition and went over. GENERAL JORDAN—THE Ct/li AN SITUATION. A full and authoritative statement frim Geo. Jordan, for more than a year past commander in chief of the Cuban patriots, gives as a clear comprehension of 'he situation in Cuba and an explanation of the difficulties surrounding the struggling He public. General Jordan has returned to this city, but not, as has been charged, in abandonment of the cause of the patriots. On the contrary, he comes as the agent ot their Government, and hopeful of their u ti raate success through their present guerrilla like operations, even though unaided from abroad. He declares that there is no lack of patriots eager for service under the Re public unable to obtain arms, and that the negroes and Coolies willingly tight under the banner of revolution, and make soldiers not inferior to the best. The countrv is fully supplied with provisions—amply able, indeed, to support an army equal to all the requirements of th'e Republic. The Spanish troops, with great barbarity, have destroyed many valuable plantations, and, with unpar ulleled ferocity, butchered hundreds of the inhabitants; but they can hope to cut off neither the supplies of soldiers nor food. What Cuba lacks is material of war in the shape of arms and ammunition, and this only. To obtain such supplies is the main purpose for which Gen. Jordan returns to this country. He has no doubt that if arms end ammunition are had, an army of patri ots fully adequate to cope with the 40,0)0 Spanish troops on the island can soon he raised, and with them he believes Havana can be besieged in three months. It is clearly evident—not so much from the statement of Gen. Jordan as from othjr general information—that the affairs of the Cuban Republic have been mismanaged, it home and abroad. Its army has been di vided; military operations have beencarri'd out upon no general plan, and the discipline is plainly not as commendable as the bravery displayed by the troops. But there has been dereliction of duty elsewhere, and all the more to be condemned because tie difficulties of performing well that duty were less than on the immediate scene of strife. The business of the Republic, fcr instance, has been mismanaged by the Juma which sits in this city. We have given th*t body, and do still give it credit for the zeal which it has displayed for the cause of Cu ban liberty and the energy employed in furthering it. But the Junta has not been as discreet as it was zealous, and much ofits effort has been wasted in ill-considered en terprises. Perhaps we shall see a. improve ment in this matter, should Gen Jordan, who is acquainted with both countries and peoples, assume the direction of Cuban matters here. Arms ought to be furnished the struggling patriots, and we have not a doubt that UDtier Gen. Jordan's direction they will be obtained and forwarded. To this end, as to the most pressing and im portant need, tbe Cuban patriots in America ought now to devote themselves. — N. Y. Triljonr. SUPREME COURT PROCEEDINGS.

NEW YORK, May 6. —General Thomas Jordan, late commaoder-in chief of the Cu ban insurgents, arrived in the MOITO Castle from Havana this morning and proceeded to the residence of Henor Lemus, the Cuban Minister to this country, to deliver impor tant dispatches. Gen. Jordan is accotupa nied by Col. Costillo, Maj. Betancourt and other officers of the Cuban army, and after a visit to Washington will return to Cub*. His stay in this country, which has reference to procuring munitions of war. will be brief. Gen. Jordan reports that the Cuban cause is in better condition than at any previous stage and the success of the revolution de pends only on time. The Cuban army now numbers 10,000 men. well armed, equipped and supplied with artillery and mountain howitzers sufficient for the present needs of service. The season is now in favor of the revolutionists, giving them what they most need, time for organization and collection of supplies. There are not over eighty for eigners io the Cuban army. Gen. Jordan says that the Cubans are in no way discour aged at the prospect, and that the Spaniards have lost their opportunity for putting down the revolution. Gen. Jordan left Cuba in a small sloop, and, when three days out, was chased by five steam gunboats, but a storm arising he made his escape. WASHINGTON NEWS fMuetioh of Internal Taxation. WASHINGTON, May 6.— Secretary Bout well, in conference with the Senate Finance Committee, was informed of their proposed tnode of reducing internal taxation, and was asked for his views thereon. It was agreed to repeal the tax on a'l articles except whisky tobacco, statu ps and incomes. It is believed the repeal ol the tax on articles enumerated in the bill, which includes sales, licenses, gross receipts, special taxes of all kinds, manufacturers, Ac., wi l redue the revenue about forty millions. Secretary Boutwell said he would not object to the increase of exemption from income tax to two thousand dollars, as it would not reduce the revenue more than four or five millions. The Com mittee favors a reduction of the tax to three per cent, but it is opposed to any reduc tion of exemption. The proposed bill, it seems, does not meet the views of the Ways and Means Committee. They will not eon sent to allow the income tax to remain at the present rate, and have virtually agreed to reduce the tax to three per cent., and in create the exemption to two tnousand dol lars. This will be strougly foughl when it comes up for consideration in the House, but the impression prevails that it can be carried. GENERAL NEWS ITEMS. THE Boston Advertiser reports that at Maehiasport, Me., in the harbor opposite the wharves, there is frequently an uphea val, by some power altogether unknown, of vast quantities of water, mud and stones, to the distance of many feet, and with a fu rious rushing noise. This phenomenon occurred quite a number of times during the last Summer, and once as late as a month ago. A POWDER TEST. —A Canadian didn't believe a keg of powder which he had just received was good, so he threw a coal of fire into it. Several ef the shingles of the roof wen: found, smuggled across the river into America. It is also bellieved the man has emigrated, as he has not been seen at borne since the occurrence, although one of his legs was found in Lower Canada. THE leading Canadian papers now seem to think that Canada has been imposed up on in regard to the Fenian business. They have come to the conclusion that there was no' invasion projected or intended, and they charge the Dominion Government with hav ing stirred up the wai like fever for their own purpose. The Canadian papers are probably right in this matter; and we think the people ought to hold the Dominion Government responsible for raising a false alarm which might hrve produced extreme ly damaging results. IT seems reasonably sure that an Indian war is impending, and that active hostilities will soon be begun. The Administration has promptly taken vigorous action, and ordered all the available military force to the plains. If we are to have trouble, a vigorous policy is undoubtedly the wisest, and will prove most human in the cud. The old story of justice and bad faith to ward the Indians by the whites lies at the bottom of the present trouble. It is a sad commentary upon our boasted civiliza tion that we should be so constantly ag gressive toward so feeble a race, and that we should be continually exasperating them to acts of retaliation and revenge only to make it necessary to chastise them. The process has been going on many yeare, and it is time some statesmanlike policy was at tempted. CAPTAIN KIDD'S TREASURE.—WhiIe ex cavating for the foundations of a new bridge over the canal near Trenton, N. J., on Tues day afternoon, a quantity of treasure in the shape of old coins of much value was uneath ed. One of the workmen threw up eighteen pieces of gold, vaued at #IOO, and, overjoy ed, threw reigns, and all the idlers from Trenton are watching the laborers. Many of the poor diggers have been quite lucky. One of the coins bears date of 1732, and all of them seem to be Spanish. A piece of very pure metal has two castles on one side, and two lions on the reverse, with the letters S. B. V. and P. V. A. Under them are the figures 7,4,1, and over the V. a figer 8. Some think that the coin was buried by the Hessians; but, from the coins beiDgSpanish that seems impossible, and it may be a part of the long-sought Kidd treasure. SML'UUU.NU OPICM.—A letter has been received at tbe Treasury Department from the Collecter of Customs at San Francisco, triving an account of the methods adopted by the Chinese to smuggle opium into this country. Every crack and crevice of a ves sel, as well as every particle of clothing not likely to be examined, become receptacles for tbe great narcotic of commerce. It is twisted iuto the forms ot roots and nuts, and sometimes is ingeniouslv put up as packages of agricultural seeds. It is also packed in tea lead, and made into balls with strings attached. These are sunk near the ship, and when the sails arc drawn up, hidden on board. When the last steamer arrived from Hong Kong tbe revenue officials went fishing for these spheres of somnolence and captured a case of them containing seven hundred of these balls, encasing four hun dred pounds of opium, TAXES.—The amount of reduction of taxes aa proposed by the bill introduced in the Senate by Mr. Sherman k aa follows: On incomes, $14,000,000; sates, $8,753,- 000; groan receipts, $6,632,000; article* in schedule A, $895,000; salaries of United States officers, $683,000; passports, $27,- 000; legacies and successions. $2,848,000; miscellaneous, $448,000; special tsxes. ex ©ept spirits and tobacco, which includes liceme taxes and all taxes on employment. $9,311,000.

FOR THE RENOVATION OF THE HAIR. THE GRF.A T DgSfPFRA TVU OF THE AGF A dressing which is at once agreeable, healthy, and effectual for preserving the hair. Faded or gray hair it toon rettorcd to ilt original color and tic glott and frtrhnctt of youth. Thin hair is thickened, falling hair checked, and baldness often, though not always, cured by its use. Nothing can restore the hair where the follicles are destroyed, or the glands atrophied and decay ed. Bat such as remain can be saved for useful ness by this application. Instead of fooling the hair with a pasty sediment, it will keep it clean and vigorous. Its occasional nse will prevent the hair from torning gray or falling off, and conse quently prevent baldness. Free from those dele terious substances which make some preparations dangerous and injurious to the hair, the Vigor can only benefit but not barm it. If wanted merely for a HAIR DRESSING, nothing eise can be fonnd so desirable. Contain, ing neither oil nor dye, it does not soil white cambric, and yet lasts longer on the hair, giving it a rich glossy instre and a grateful perfume. Prepared by Da. J. C.
