Wo ate indebted to Col. T. J. Pickens, the
j very efficient Comptroller General, for a copy
; of his excellent report.
j The aggregate of the goneral taxes for both
I divisions amounted to $591,799.58, which is an
j increase of $717.53, as compared with the aggre- j
j gate of 1859. The tax on all the lands in tiio !
| State is only $82,015.51. which is less than half :
a cent per acre. Col. 1'ickens very properly j
insists, in his report, on an improvement in the
tax system of the State. Long ago we favored i
the ad valorem system, and on every proper oc- i
casion shall urge its adoption. It is just to nil. i

The reports for the fiscal year show the stri- J
king fact, that the Banks, without any apparent
cause, retired nioro than six millions ami a half j
of their circulation in a few months. These I
frequent and ruinous collapses in hank circulation,
make it questionable, whether the progressive
prosperity <>f any country can be safely
fostered and sustained by a standard and measure
of value so uncertain and fluctuating as a
paper currcncv. when it. hoenmna ? i l

j monoved corporations to extend and contract
the measure of valuo for all property, in utter
| disregard of the recognised truths of political
economy, is the most anti-republican principle, I
which has been developed under our system of I

A Southern Confereno.fi.
It is significant that nil tho papers, says the
Carolinian, that a shirt tima* since were most<
denunciatory of South Carolina und were niosy
abject in their professions of Uniouism, are no/
urging (strenuously a Southern conference/?
Their policy is plain. They have only yir^lled
I *o the pressure of tlic times, and have changed
ground a little to effect the same end./ They
me.xn the South to remain in the Union at ali
hn/ ?"-ils, and they think if they get a conference
at.'I postpone action, they will give the
Abolitionists an opportunity of patching up
some rotten lender of a compromise, whicli the
"conservatives" will bo al "o to beguile the
South to accept. In the ^oantime, homestead
i bills, Pacific llailroatH*?l!s. Tariff bills arc be'
ing hurried throu^tt Congress, while freesoilcrs,
Abolitionists, protectionists, anil Pacific Railroad
plunderers and speculators arc applauding
and urging forward the " conservative co-operationists"
in their effort to procure a conference.
On the other hand, every letter that
monies from true resistance men in North Caro'
lina, Virginia, Tennessee and Kentucky urj^e
I South Carolina and the other States to press forI
ward. They want the cotton States to secede,
and then they will co-oporate by following.?They
will not make the issue now, because they
can press it more successfully through the alternative
of alliance with a Northern or Southern
Confederacy. They say if the cotton States
move promptly, the bortler States can be carried
easily for Southern co operation. But if
i uiey wait, ior co-operation by simultaneous
! movement, then co operation means submission
to Black Republicanism. If the cotton States
co-operate with the border States, then tho Itofiubiicans
will rulo over overy Southern State.
Jut if tlioy change tho issue and act for themselves,
then co-operation means resistance, and
I the government of tho South by the South.?
j Tho cry of co operation of all the Southern
| States through a genoral conference is a device
! to prevent the movement. This, Sou'h Caroli|
nn is determined to defeat. She is hacked by
i a party in every Southern State, anil she can
j ami vi 111 defc.it it, oven if it takes tho issuo of
I war to ctiect it. Sho knows no danger equal in
that of .submission, and that danger she will
peril every thing tc. avert.

to give it an emphatic denial. No man in Maryland
is more bitterly opposod to Lincoln than
