CORRESPONDENCE. Our Wa—lnmon Letter. Washington, Juno 21, IS7I. To the Edit")- of Ihe State Journal. A WORD ON TIIK TARIFF. What is the tariff? A mode of taxation, j There are three modes of taxation. A di■ ! rect tax which falls almost exclusively upon land ' } an excise or internal revenue tax, or , a tariff or tax on imports. In times of war a fourth method is adopted. It is a system of forced loans, which is represented bj our irredeemable greenback, currency. All civili7.ed governments derive their revenue from these four sources, of which only three arc resorted to in times of peine. The source of direct taxation is the moid ancient, but most oppressive, as was dis covered when Congress, in the beginning of the war, tried to raise but twenty millions of dollars from this source. The tax is not : all yet collected, and could not be without ] selling a large number of homesteads in ! violation of the homestead principle, which exempts these from distraint. The constitution of the United States, moreover, provides that taxation and rep resentation shall be equal. When the con- ' stitution was adopted and all sections of the country were agricultural this seemed fair, but now it would work the greatest injus tice. Lor instance, the wealth of Rhode Island is at least thirty times that of Mm- j nesota, bnt under this system both States would pay the same taxes. The internal revenue system is also very cumbersome and therefore unpopular. Tux es on vocations, receipts, deeds, wills, and j other instruments of writing are vexatious, i nnd public opinion demands that the opera- ! tion of this system of taxation shall be re stricted to tobacco and liquors. The tarifTor import tax is the niosl pop- j ular and the least oppressive and inquisito- i rial, because the amount of (axes paid, de- ! pends very largely upon the will of the tax- ! payer. He who buys foreign products but sparingly pays but a small lax, while he who can afford to purchase largely, is gea- j erally able to pay the duties thereon. If, then, we must have n tariff or import ! tax as the easiest means of sustaining tin- \ government, and of paying the principal and interest of the public debt, the only j question which can come up for legitimate discussion is upon what articles shall the j tax be assessed. The question of how much duly shall be imposed upon each article is one of com- j promise and of a view of the whole field. j This cannot be settled, by any abstract resolutions passed either by Congress or a town meeting. There are, however, eer- ' tain principles which should be applied in j the assessment of duties, and which ought . to be incorporated into the State and Sa- j tional Republican platforms, because tliey would silence all cavils. And as a speci- j men of what 1 would think will meet the j views of Western men I give it in the form j of resolutions: Resolved, The tariff of impost on im ported articles is a mode of taxation which ! has existed since the foundation of our government, and which is indispensable for the support of the government and the dis charge of its obligations. Resolved, That in the assessment of I ihese duties upon particular articles, cer tain fundamental principles should be ap- First. That all articles, whose duties pro duce only a nominal income, shall be placed on the free list. Secondly, All new products and articles of prime neccssiiy slum mill yoj »miiA duty as Is absolutely necessary to procure a sufficient revenue. Thirdly, All articles of luxury, like largely contributory to the public revenue. Lastly, That subject to the above prin ciples, the duties shall be so adjusted as to afford incidental protection to our manufac turing interests on the one hand, and to guard against undue taxation of the con sumer on the other. In my opinion, the people of the United States are not children who can be deceived with unmeaning phrases. Plain dealing and honesty are the proper means of dis arming opposition. A taritl resolution in substance like the above is defensible in every part of the country, and can be accepted alike, by the protectionists and the free traders. THE ACHUCULTUKFI DEPARTMENT has received returns from nearly three hun dred counties in districts of the South where cotton is most raised, showing com parative average and condition of the crops at the present. With the exception of Florida, there are in every State a falling off in area, as follows: Virginia, 30 per 13; Georgia, I*2; Alabama, lit; Mississip pi, 15; Louisiana, 16; Texas, 11; Arkan sas 16; Tennessee, 12. The general aver age, as compared with last year, will make a reduction of about 15 per cent., or a mil lion and a third of acres, there being be tween seven and eight million of acres planted in cotton. One hundred and fifty pounds to the acre for several years past, with the exception of last year, which yielded two hundred, has been the average The spring in the South lias been wet and cold, and in consequence the condition of the growing plant is below the average.— Many of the plants have turned yellow and died; but the vacant places have been re tilled with new seeds, and it is not impossi ble that with favorable weather an average may be attained. THE EFFECTS OF COLFAX'S EXAMPLE, AND ITS RESULTS. Cigar stores are complaining bitterly of dull times sines the recent illness of Vice- President Colfax. Heretofore we have been accustomed to seeing almost every other gentleman walking our streets pulling a cigar ; and even ladies (or those deigning to call themselves such) have been often seen aping the gentlemen with cigaretts in their mouths. Notwithstanding the Vice- President's denial that excessive Smoking was the cause of his recent illness people believe it was more owing to it than any other abuse. There is much talk among the reformers of instituting an anti-smoking society. REPORT—II COTJ N'T) ■: It 1 -I-: ITS. Secretary Boutwell, tearing that there might perhaps be some truth in the report that among the bonds, amounting to some sixty millions of dollars, lately purchased by the government, that there were innu merable counterfeits, appointed on Tlhu's printiiig bureau, a committee to CXimSM all the bonds hitherto prepared by the de partment. Thus far during their two days researches the committee have been unable to find one spurious bond, and it is general ly believed by those intimately connected with the department that their search will only be fruitful in allaying all suspicion that the rumor, so well circulated for tin past few weeks, has any foundation what ever.

The crops in this county are first-rate, es pecially the com crop which promises to be an abundant one, which is cheering to the farmers who, in consequence of the diouths for the three successive years past, tegethci completely (liscouragoii. 'I'lic wcatl this vicinity is perfectly delightful. Our county court, Judge Leake presi 'liinr, was in session on last Monday, and was engaged in hearing an infanticide <-n-i., in which Susan I'.oyd, together with hor lather and mother, were charged with the murder of the infant child of the lirst named. Large numbers of the colored population were in attendance eager for ihe conviction of the alleged offenders. Hector Davis, lis.)., assisted li\ Maj. I!. <i. Banks,and Colonel T. 11. Tutwilor, de fended Hie accused parties, and succeeded in obtaining the acquittal of the father and mother, hut ihe mother of the deceased child complained ol' being too feeble to lin dens the excitement and tatigue of Ihe trial. She was examined by order of the court by Dr. O. W, Kcan,who pronounced her too unwell, whereupon her case was continued. Don .lew THE STATE JOURNAL. The Sta-it.

C. li is evittent to all Intelligent minds that the time Ims come when those engaged In rural put suits should have an organization devoted entirely to their interests. Such it is intended bo moke il.e Order ot Patrons. It was instituted in ISU7 ; it? growth is unprecedented in the history of secret associations, and it is acknowledged one of the mOKI useful and powerful organizations in the Putted States, its grand objects are not only general improvement iv husbandry, but to in crease lhe generaly happiness, wealth, and pros perity of the country. It is founded upon the i- tlint the products of the soil comprise the basis ol all wealth ; that individual happiness de pend- upon general prosperity, and that the wealth of a. country depends upon the general In telligence and menial culture of the producing da wee, In the meetings of this Order all but. members are excluded, and there is iv its proceedings a symbolized ritual, pleasing, beautiful, and appro priate, which la designed not only lo charm thi fancy, but to cultivate and enlarge the mind an< purify the heart, having; at the same time, strict adaptation iv rural pursuits. The secrecy of tho ritual and proceedings of tin- order have been adopted chiefly for the par ikose of accomplishing desired efficiency, exteu ■JOB, and unity, and to secure among its mem bers, in the Internal working of the Order, confi dence, harmony, and security. Women are admitted to full membership, ant we-olicit the co-operation of women because o a conviction that without hor aid success w ill 1m loss certain and decided. Much might be said in this connection, but every husband and brothel knows that where he can be accompanied by his Wife or sister no lessons will bo learned but bhosj of purity and truth. The Order of the Patrons of Husbandry wil accomplish a thorough systematic organi/.atioi among Farmers and Horticulturists throughou the United States, and will secure among them iiuimate social relations and acquaintance wit! each other, for the advancement and elevation o their pursuits, with an appreciation and protec tion of their true interests. 11 v such means ma\ be accomplished thai which exists throughoi ihe country in all other avocations and anion all other classes—combined co-operative assocli turn for individual Improvement aud comiuoi benefit. Among the advantages which may ho derive from the" Order are systematic arrangements fo procuring aud disseminating, In the most exped ii«.us manner, information relative lo crops.de mand and supply, prices, markets, and transpor t a tion throughout the country ; also for the pui b and exchange of stock, seeds, and desire varieties of plants and trees, aud for the purpoti ni procuring help at home or from abroad, an situations for persons seeking employment; als for ascertaining and testing ihe merits of newl. Invented farming Implements and those not i general use, and for detecting and exposing thow that are unworthy, and for protecting, by al available menus, therarmlnginterestsfrom frai Slid deception, and combinations of every kind. We ignore all political or religious dlscussioi in ihe Order: wo do not solicit the patronage ■ ni\ sect, association.or individual, upon at grounds whatever exoepl upon thetotrtnsicinej of tho Order. The better to secure greater benefits to o members we desire to establish Oranges every city, town, and village in the Culled Stat.
