ft Is announced that s new proposition
in rotation to Virglntu la to be
brought forward, on the reassembling
of Congress, by a mombor of the Re*
construction Committee. It la spoken
cil as n " compromise " between those
who would admit the State tit once and
those who would remand her to
tho condition of Georgia. The bill
which has been drawn by this gentleman,
and which Is said to meet the concurrence
of some of his associates In
the Committee, requires all the State
olUcftrs and members of tho loglslatnre
to take an oath that they are not debar*
red from holding oflloe by tho XlVth
article of the Constitution of the United
States, and requlros the Legislature to
pledge Itself by solemn act neyor to
prohibit negroes from voting, holding
olflce, sitting on Juries aud sharing tho
school money. Theso fundamental
conditions being accepted, tho State is
to be admitted.
TheXIVth Article provides that no
|)ttrnutJ,!]iivi!iK |iruviuuBijr lar.uu uu uniu
to Hiipport (bo Constitation of tbo
United StuteH i?h a murbber of oilbor
liouho of ConRroeH, or us an ofllccr of
Hie United Mates, or na a member or
Htato IV'glffhiture, or na nu executive
or judicial oQicerJof auy State, wbo
whh ongagod in tbe robellton, ahnll
hold auy otlloo, civil or military, under
any Niate. It follows tbat If tboro are
auy Virginia Htate ofllcora and members
of the Laglalaturo wbo aro Inimical
to tilts XlVth Article, they
caunot assume the ofllces to whloh
I boy hava boon elected; bnt whether
thorn aro any mail bo nHcertalned.
TIim Virginia Constitution should pro*
vide for this; for the reconstruction
acta require that constitution to conform
to the XI Vtb artlclo In this particular;
but It aBually takes loglalatlon to
mako constitutional law operative, and
thore can bp no legislation by the Virginia
Assembly until the Slate has
been admitted. It Ib, doubtless, thororore,
necessary?as It 1b clearly proper,
if necessary?for Confess to require
conformity with tbe XlVth Artlclo lu
the act whereby Virginia is admitted.
It is proposed, therefore,
tbat they shall tako what Is
known as tbo Fourteenth Article
oath. This Is not what 1b tormed
the "iron-clad" oath, the requirement
of whloh was submitted to the people 1
or Virginia and rejected. Tbe "Iron- 1
clad" oath exoludos all who lu any way '
participated in tho rebellion. It is tbe
more creature of lngialation. The other <
simply excludes those whom the XlVth j
Article designs to exclude?rebels who ,
had nnnn hnlri nnrtnln nfllnAM. nnd
bad sworn to support tho Constitution
of tbo United States. Under the reconstruction
acts this olass of persons
was excluded from tho franohlse, while
all other rebels were permitted to Vote.
The oath applied In making tho registration
may bo found In the supplemental
act of March 21.1,1867. This Is
the oath which it Is now proposed shall
be applied in Virginia; and we do not
nee how It can bo avoidod. At loast the
object to be effected by It, viz: to excludo
portions Inimical to the XlVih
Article, if Uiero bo any, must be
tooChed .In sorao way, unless that pro*
vision of the Constitution Is to be iguored;
and Congress has no moro powor
to ignoro it than Virginia has. *Tl?o up*
plication of this onth In therefore neces
Httry and judicioun, while tho requirement
of the "iron-clad" oath would be
nnithor.
In regard to tho othor condition, viz:
ilint tho Legislature "pledge itself by
solemn act" nover to amend theuoiHtltutlon
so as to Impair tho rights of tho
negroes, we do not see clearly what a
pieuge oi iubi Kina wouut oe woriu. ir q
It would bind (ho present legislature, It t
would uot bind their successors. The J
rights of the adored peoplo Hhould be
protected by something Btrougor than
pledges by solemn act of Leglalature, t]
for be they ever ho solemn ihey are re- n
pealable. Their rights should l>o so- t;
cured against future enoronchnient by a
positive and fundamental law. They i
would have that security, w? conceive, c
If the XVth Amendment were a part ?
ol tho Constitution; and the rest hitch In y
reconstruction Is, the dnngerlfrom read- j,
mlttlng the still excluded states bofore it v
has become such. Yet their ratification v
Im neoesHary to mako up the two-thirds. w
Only two course*, therefore, appear 8i
to be opon: lit, to admit them hh rap* c,
Idly aa they comply with thoconditions &
laid down, and take tho clmncea of get- p
ling the rntlQcatlon of the other States n
afterwards; and 2d, to keep thorn out )
till enough others aro scoured to inake w
tholr admission complete the work.
Hither course Involves risk. In the
first It might happen that all tho Sonth- jj
ern Htatea would be ropresentett In Con- U{
gress before there were nny ponstltu- oi
tlonitl guaranteea (or tbe block*, and In
the second u clamor may be raised that
Congress la trilling with Uie exoluded
Htatos, and a reaction brought on that
would result la glvloc the Democracy
control or the House of RepreaontatlYM.
There In, therefore, an obvloua neoeeslty
for a npeedy completion of rooon*
structlon, and yet danger to the fatnre
tranquility of the country tf,the XVth
Amendment la not first ratified. It la the
realization of thle that makes Congress
hesitate. The question whether all
houeat men under the Jurisdiction of
this government are to bo citizens and
all oltlzena equally protected by the
laws, Is one that must be conclusively
settled uow, If we are to have ponce
hereafter. The war was fought by the
Government to settle It In tho affirmative
i and all the loyal people In the
United States who stood by the Government
through the struggle are
reeolved that It shall bo settled In the
afllrmatlve. Congreaajwlll, therefore,
be sustained In doing whatever la neod
ful to make good that resolution; bat
thoy should be oareful to go no farther
than In dearly needful, so as not to give
color to, much lees justify, thoohargo of
being animated by mere party purpose.
Virginia has apparently compiled
with the requirements of Congreasi
and baa a claim to admission; but we
do not think It jnst or aocnrate to
speak of the present hesitation of ConKress
as ''bad faith" towards her, as
somo of our Republican exchanges
have done. Congress is responsible to
tho wholo country, and must be the
solo Judgoof when it is beet to admit
a .State, although there may be no legal
obutaclo to Immediate admission. This
would curtalnly bo true In referenoe to
auy new Territory, and It has quite as
much forco In referenoe to old territory
whoso immediate admission
might uudnnger the establishment of
funduimmtal principles of Government.
In common with others, we
have rejoiced for months past at the
manifestations of good feeling and good
citizenship in Virginia, and in the prospuot
that a speedy closing up of reconstruction
was near. It hus appearod
as if the rifteontb Amondment would
be ratified at au oarly day;'but U is now
evident that the measure is not yet out
of the wooiIh; uml the manifestations in
Georgia show but too plainly what
might happen in all theSoutbern States
if they were restored to their ancient
powers itnil privileges without constitutional
protection for their black
people.
Wliili*, therefore, we have beou lnollned
to fitvor the admission of Virginia
without further conditions, wo
do not feel like eeusurlng Congress for
lis hesitation, believing as we do that
it arises (except possibly In a few coses)
not from nny wish to Interfere' with
mere local politics, or to promote the
fortunes of any particular set of local
politicians, but out of geuuiue solicitude
as to the effect of hor admission
at the preaent juncture on the settlement
of gravo national questions.
There is one oxpodlent touching the
preaent dllllonlty of oompletlng reconstruction
which appears to have been
overlooked. At least it has not been
discussed, no far tut wo know, either In
Congress or by tho press. The reconstruction
act ol Maroh 2,18(37, in laylog
down tho conditions under which the
robel States might be admitted, provided
amoog other things that when
the legislature of a State "shall have
adopted the amendment to the Constitution
of the United Stales proposed
by the 30th Congress and known as
Artlolo Fourteen, anil whcii said article
shall have become a part of Me Oonsti
tution of the United States, said State
shall be declared entitled to representation,
Ac." Would It not have beeif tho
shorlost way to tlnal reconstruction to
make the sume Condition in reference
to the XVth Amendment ? Would it
uot be the dlrectest way yet to make
tbe complete raUilCAtlou nt that measure
the pre requisite to the admission of
any more States ? Say that whon it has
become a part of the Constitution they
shall all come in. That would place
before tho country a square, unembarrasped
issue. Tho four oxcluded States
would ratify of course, and the respon- J
sibllity of keeping them out longer
would then rest with tho States that
hayo thus far failed or refused to do so. f
We believe If the country were brought 0
thus fairly faoe to /ace with tbe qnos- J
tion, it would be speedily decided by a ?
ratification, and tbe prolonged resistunce
to a tiual settlement of the quee- *
Lions growing out or tbe war, on a basis
Df equal rlghte, would be ended. r

POOOU.
From the New York Tribuco.
A correspondent writpe ob to say
that,! while we insist on the retention of
Fedoral taxes In general, wo urge the
abolition of the Income Tax. Ilia letter
Is not remarkably courteous, If even
civil; but wo would not mind that, if It
were only true. We flavor the repeal of
of no Federal taxes whatever. The Income
Tax, which la essentially a Wartax,
explrasfby limitation within the
year 1870; and wejdo not favor Its relm* |
position. That Is the exaol trnth,
We object to the renewal ol this Unpost
tbat It Is the most unequal, unfair,
oppressive tax this country has ever
known. It Is nearly all paid by a hundredth
part of the community; and
they by no means th4> most uble or I
woalthy. The writer hereof has paid 1
more than f1,000 nor annum as Income
Tax lover slnoe it was imposed, and
could not have |honestly paid less; yet
he sees persona around him who live,
and entertain, furnish their houses and
maintain turn-outs, as ho cannot afford
to do, yot either pay no Iuoomo Tax or 1
pay but a beggarly hundred or so each.
In fact, he 1s requlrod to pay their taxes
In addition to his own; and that he cannot
contontedly abido.
All taxes are more or loss snbjoot to
nl.lontlnn that lliavillannnraan hnn.l
esty HiiJ favor fraud; but no other
stimulates rascality so widely and generally
aB this. The importer who undervalues,
or returns false quantities,
or smuggles, Is one among ten thousand;
his avarice may demoralize him,
but does not demoralize the whole
body politic. A tax on visible, tangible
property may be unfairly assessed,
so that one Is mado to pay twenty or
thirty per oent, more than bis fair proportion;
but this Is nothing to a tax
whioh many relatively poor mon pay
In full, while very many richer men
don't pay at all. We havo not a doubt
that there are In this oonntsy at lonst
One Hundred Thousand richer men
than we are who haven't paid ono cent
ot Income Tax slnoe the law imposing
it was enacted.
This tax would be unfair If it were
correctly asaessod. A farmer in Vermont
or Iowa, whose income, honestly
computed, is 92,000, is in better circumstances
than the merchant in this city,
Boston, New Orleans or San Franolsco,
whose Income is #6,000; yet, after deducting
the $1,000 exempted by law, the
farmer is oalled on for 950 and the merchant
for 9200. The widow and orphans
who have but91t000a year in all, must
hand over 960 of It aa income tax if
their property happens to be investod
in railroad stock or bonds?no 81,000
exemption for them ! He who lives at
ease on his rent-roll, secure against
reverses, and he who earns an equal*
t... .1 1 n|,MA
auiu ujr untu nutn, uuu nuuuo uroui
to-morrow would leave his family destitute,
are required to pay fivo percent
of their respective lnoouiew In satisfaction
of this tax,-when there la no
parity in their cases. This tax pots a
premium on absenteeism; many in*
vesting their property bo that it cannot
bo reached by the tax-gatherer, and
living idly iu Europe on (he amount
which, hud they remained at home,
they must have contributed to the support
or the Government us Income Tax.
If this tax is to be revived, we insist
oa making every one pay it. Repeal
all exemptions, no matter on what pretext,
and make every one swear to an
annual return of his lnoome and pay
his equal percentage thereon. Thus
Levied, the tax could not atand u second
year. It Is now opheld simply by
Lhe connivance oi those who regard it
as a clever devlco for saddling their
own taxes on their noighbors. Make
nil pay share and aharo alike, and it
would soon.bo kicked into oblivion.
