In the Ohio House of Representatives, Wednesday, March 28, 1866, on Welsh's Bill. Repealing Mr. Welsh's Bill. Repealing the Fifty-Dollar-Exemption- Mr. Welsh's Bill. Repealing the Fifty-Dollar-Exemption-Clause in the General Tax Law. The bill Introduced into the Ohio Ilouse of Representatives by Mr, Welsh, repeal ing the FIFTY-DOLLAR-EXEMPTION-CLAC8K In the tax law of thU State, came up for oontiideratrou in that body, on Wednesday, March 28th. It elicited an animated and a spicy discussion, which was participated In members on both sides of the Ilouse. REMARKS OF MR. BLOOM. Mr. BLOOM said he desired to call the attention of the Ilouse to the pro visions ot the bill and give bis reasons for opposing It. llie Dill cnanges ine present inw uy Binn ing the exemption ot fifty dollars, and churglng the Door upon every dollar's worth of property they possess. It would but encumber the duplicate, and cost more for collection than tue tax wouiu amount to. . . It introduced an arbitrary valuation ot property, lie preferred to swear to tne valuo of his own property, rather than submit to the judgment of others. He might add as an additional reason mat it would iustlv bring odium upon this Legis lature for neglecting to bring upon the tax duplicate the wealth of the rich man, be cause of the character of his investments in Government bonds, and then reaching down to the poorer class subject to taxa tion every dollar wortn or property iney noAHPHg. He was unwilling to assume any such responsibility; and hence, called at tention to the provisions or ine oui, wmcn he hoped would alone bo sufllcient to defeat its passage. REMARKS OF HON. W. D. HILL. Mr. ttit.T. aiilil hn was oi) nosed to the rms- saire of the bill for several reasons, and he desired to call the attention of the House to some of the arguments advanced in favor of the bill by its special advocates. It was claimed that under the present law, allow ing parties to swear to the value oi their own property, many frauds were practiced, hut it was also true tnat unuer tne law as It now is, Assessors were authorized and re quired in all cases where they had reason to suspect tnat persons were evauing a cor rect return of their property for taxation, to renort such persons to the Board of Equali zation, and to make out a list themselves; and any person had the right to report such persons to tne county Auuitor; anu uie Auditor. ut)on such Information, has power to send for witnesses and ascertain the true value of property iu such cases, and place the same upon the duplicate for taxation, with a penalty of fltty per cent, attached. The existing laws were sufllcient to Insure a correct valuation of property, if it was only enforced. He was also opposed to re quiring Assessors to put a valuation on every man's property, ueioreuoing uim imsuuuiu want to be assured that all Assessors were honest, and men of good judgment as to tne valuation of proper ty. lie was also op posed to the blil because it repealed the law which allowed every man $50 worth ot property exempt from taxation. If srentlemen desired, as they claimed, to sub ject all the property of the State to taxa tion, let mem JOUI wiuu Hie iuiiiutiaiiu members of this body in urging some legislation to make the wealthy bond holder pay a little taxes. He thought it came with bad grace from gentlemen on the other side of the House, to urge the passage of a bill here subjecting the last dollar the poor man had to taxation, while thev were sustaining a policy which had consolidated nearly half the wealth of the country into the hands of the rich bond-holder, and had exempted them too from bearing any of the burdens ot the very Government, the advantages of which they were enjoying, and whicli by its laws protected them in person and property. If these gentlemen wanted all the wealth of the country placed on the tax duplicate, why do they not favor the taxation of the bond-holder as well as the mechanic aud the laborer? Mr. BANKING, of Knox, hero asued if the gentleman lrom Defiance believed that the law creating these Government bonds was constitutional ? Mr. HI LiL replied that he did not profess to be an expounder ol constitutional law.but if there was any clause in ine constitution empowering Congress to pass laws ex empting the wealth ot the rich army con tractor, the sutler, the quartermaster, and others, who had fattened on the misfortunes of the country, during our late troubles, . .. -i . . . i i ... . . and saddling an tne ouruensoi tneuuverii ment upon tho laboring poor, he had yet to see it. He could say to the gentleman from Knox, however, that whether constitutional or not. It was in direct antagonism with the very genius and spirit of ourrepublican Institutions, and he would never, by any voteof his, sustain thepolicy or the men who had inaugurated this odious system of class legislation, It was but a short time ago that it was claimed all over the country thatshares in National Bauks wereexempt from taxation, but the hupreme Court of the United States had within the last few days decided that stocks in these banks were taxable like other moneys and other property, notwithstanding the dissenting opinion of Mr. Chief Justice Chase, the father of greenbacks. He repeated, if gen tlemen were so anxious to have everything taxed, why don't they put themselves on the reeord in favor of taxing the bond-holders; why dodge so important a matter and smother resolutions onEhe subject in their caucusses and committees ? Let gentlemen show their hands on this bond business be fore seeking to increase the burdens of the poorer classes. His attention had j list been CP.Hcd to the fact that this bill exempted gold and silver watches irom taxation. Whv was this so? He had recently read a report In the newspapers that Mr. Pike, of . ' . .. . t i. 1 .. . i (JlUClnllflU, uuriUK mo iulu vuiuuiimjus uio there, had his pocket picked of a gold watch worth a thousand dollars, and he re membered that a citizen of his own village possessed a gold watch reported to be worth that sum. Here then was a proposition to exempt the thousand dollar watch of the millionaire, and at the same time tax the blacksmith' anvil, the shoemaker's ham mer and the widow's cow. He was opposed to all such legislation,, aud hoped the bill would not pass. ...... . . Mr. WELSH, of Meigs; replied, renewing r.hH old charges of disloyalty against the Democrats in opposing, the Government during the troubles of the country. Mr. HILL replied that he was sorry the gentleman from Meigs had not confined himself to the bill before the House. This howl of disloyalty was the stock iu trade of that party, and without it, their occupation, like Othello's, would be gone. It was with great reluctance, at this late period ot the session, that he felt constrained to notice the charge ol that guntlcmaa- that Demo crats had fought Government during the war. Go to the rank and me oi tne army. examine the muster-rolls and even here in these Halls were found true Democrats who had fought the rebellion from the be ginning to its overthrow. This charge that Democrats were disloyal was not true, and gentlemen knew it-when they made tne charge. But who are the loyal men now? Who supports the Government now r w ny, sir, this Republican party had to go down to Nashville, Tennessee, almost to the very heart of rcbeldom, to select a candidate ior Vice President. Well, they found Andrew Johnson there, held him up to the people d urlng the lute campaign as a paragon oi loy altr aud virtue, and now what do they think oi htm, and what does he think ot fhew? Only a few weeks ago this loyal Union President felt it his duty to ap pear before what they call a crowd of Kabble, and denounced the leaders of this Republican organization R3 traitors, while they in return say he wa drunk on thatoe caslon. He hoped If President Johnson was drunk, that he had a good supply of whisky on hand, and would use jt freely to the end of his Presidential term. If gen tlemen desired to ascertain who had fos tered rebellion and who had given aid and encouragement to the rebels, let them go over to the State Library, and there read from the files of the New York Tribune, which advocated peacelul separation ot the States Immediately before the beginning of the war, which said, "the Union wag not worth preserving iu connection with the South." Let them look at the Cincin nati Commercial, another one of their orgaus, which was opposed to coercion and in favor of letting the South go, and also take a peep into the Congressional Globe, and see where Mr. tStanton, whom they afterwards nominated and elected Lieut. Governor of Ohio, claimed that thU Union could not be held together by mili tary force. Don't they remember when Garrison denounced the Constitution as a "covenant with death and a league with hell," when Wendell Phillips boasted In r. public lecture that he had labored for nineteen years to break up this Union, under the very nose of the President and Congress, and on the next day was welcomed to the lloor ot the benate Dy tne presiding olllcer of that body, while others were banished the country, because ol their devotion to the Constitution and the Union ? If . that won't do, go back a ittle further, when Wade and Glddings' speeches were sent into South Carolina and Khett's Into tne lteserve, uy tnese men, to widen the Dreacli between, the two sec tions. You held out the olive branch of peace to the rebels in the beginning, told them to eo: theV took Your advice and tried to go. You whipped them back and are now trying to kep them out after you nave whipped tnen in. Jio regretteu ex ceedinglv this discussion had turned on national politics, and would pursue the subject no further. GUR GUEST MARGARET. "Ho will never care for me any more!" Elizabeth Bayton exclaimed. She was the spoiled and petted child of a rich West In dian proprl tor. Mrs. AiarKnam looKeu up irom tier em broidery work In some surprise. "Lizzy, mv dear," said she, "when will you learn to control In some degreo your excitable nature r ' and the quiet old lady looked really grived. "Who will not like you? and what is the cause ol oltensef ' Lizzv could not help laughing when she found how imperfectly sue uau expressed herselt. "Oh! you know what I mean," she said in her impulsive way. Indeed 1 do not," airs. Alarkham re piled, quite gravely; and then she went on with the brown leal that she was working on the canvas. Lizzv had been three years at Mrs. Mark' ham's school ; and, although much im proved, she was the most troublesome of thutiauys pupus. sue uiu not care mucn for any of her companions, yet site always took the lead among them. Lizzy had not a very humble spirit. She was a clever girl, but sue need not nave pi lueu nerseu on tier cleverness. There were many in the world around her aye, and at her very doors too of lar greater intellect than herself; but Lizzy, poor child, did not know this. It was rather an unfortunate tiling, ior her that she was at the head ot every class in that seminary. "You are all very foolish iris I ' she would say when she was very much put out, and then In a little while she would be very repentant, and present her schoolmates with a peace ollcring ol tarn arinds of Guava jelly. This was her wav aud she did not want for friends, though she never took them earnestly to her heart. The masters were all delighted with her but she was so eager and sensitive and pas sionate, that sometimes he forgot her good breeding witn tiiein. it was a sneer im possibility to go on quite smoothly with the girl. Yet there were many worse girls than Elizabeth, and I sometimes used to think Mrs. Markhnm did not quite make allowances for her quicksilver tempera ment; she did i ot consider that the poor child was ureauiuuy grieved anu worried by what would have been loherno kind of annoyance; ana now, in her inuignan outburst, when she said, "lie will never care lor mo any more!" Mrs. Markham only thoughtot her pupil's want ot control over herself, so prejudicial to her as the head ot that estabiisiimeut. "You know what I mean, Mrs. Markham," the impetuous girl exclaimed. 'Tana is go lug to marry again. He will marry that horrid widow, Mr. JJaUtou : and then will stay with you for the rest of my lile "now you jump at conclusions!" Mrs, Markham said. "Let me see the letter." Lizzie handed it to her. The expression that called lortu the wayward girls resent lul alarm ran thus : "On my way to St. George's I stopped Mrs. Dalstou's. She gave me a change horses. Mine were quite knocked up. She has been a widow for three years, yet still she leels her loss deeply." Mrs. Markham could not help smiling on seeing that eager, angry face. "There really no cause lor alarm that lean dis cover," she said. . Almost before the words were out of her mouth, Lizzie interrupted her. "You will not sympathize with me, but only laugh at me!" she exclaimed. I tell you papa means to marry ; aud you who go on so . smoothly don't know ' what, is to be thwarted and vexed like this.". Mrs. Markham thougiit she did notal ways go on so smoothly, and that her spirits were sometimes sorely chafed ; but she did not tell Lizzy this, for she had burst into great fit of sobbing and crying. . She only kissed her lorehead, and begging her be In a better condition to meet her friend whom she was expecting that evening, and compose herself and to wash her face.so as who was to be ner guest ior some -weeks Just like a child, ana in truth she was scarcely more, being only sixteen years age, in a lew minutes juizzy naa tnrown her trouble concerning ner iatner s mam age, and was listening with interest to' Mrs. Markham had to say ot Margaret Mean motit, the expected guest; and this did more towards brightening up her counten ance than all tne wastnng in tne world By the time Margaret arrived, Lizzy was Quite cheerful, witn ner nair smoothed prettily back from her forehead, and a soft ness In her clear eyes that wag. not usually there, like tue Bpriug say aiter a ram storm 1 of is to to of on all When In a proper mood, no one could br, . have better than Lizzy; and now gs she sat with crotchet, looking smilingly at the' guest, she really was a pretty girl, and I could not help thinking wnata pity it was e sometimes so dlslixurcu herself by her wayward passions. Margaret Beaumont was five and twenty. The gate of girlhood had just closed on her, but the sun rays of that time were flicker-. ngonher through its bars. Young and old alike were delighted with her, ior the oyance of girlhood was still In her face, mingled with a sedate cheerfulness that was very charming. , i Before two days nau passed., wzzy was asking her how she managed to Jo her back hair so nicely, for she could never ar range the bow. And then Margaret show, ed her how the soil, long ends were wound around a piece of entanglement, called a frlsette. I think, as far as Lizzie wax con cerned, this went a great way toward' es-, tahllshlng the pleasant understanding tnat. almost on tlrst acquaintance sprang up be-, tween them. It was very little Mrs. Mark- am had told Lizzv about the new comer. In other matters she often gave in most ad-' vised ly to her, to keep her iu a pretty good mood. "How oft',n am I to tell you, Llizabeth," she said, quite gravely, "that this lady with whom you are so charmed is our guest Margaret?" T And very soon the two girls were so In timate together, that Lizzy used to play upon the words, aud address our iriend as. "our guest Margaret." sue never talked now ot the stuiriditv of her companions, of the dreadful school-girllshness that enfold ed them all; she was always praising Mar garet, who was an angel, a love, a darling lit her estimation. 1 am afraid there was something ot the school-girl in all this; but we are blind mortals as regards ourselves, and Lizzy could not recognize it. She seemed to see with Margaret's eyes, and to think with her thoughts. However, Mar gartt dealt honestly with her little friend when she expressed her opinion in any un thinking, domineering way, about her fath er's marrying again. "I slupuld hate him, I tell you, If he did," she said iu indignation, and somehow when Lizzy was lu these moods, her hair seemed all at once rough and untidy, and the pret ty look passed away out ol her lace. Margaret put her hand on the girls mouth to check the sinlul words, and the river of years between them seemed to ex pand aud grow wider, and, as she rebuked Lizzy, a kind ot maternity fell on her, as if she were speaking to her child. She told Jlzzy that her father had a right to marry, and that all she could do for him, n repayment of his love and care for her, was to endeavor to overcome her antipathy to a stepmother, and be, under any circum stances, a dutiful daughter. "It is very easy lor you, Margaret," IJz- zy said, "to be good tempered and happy when you have nothing of the kind hang ing over you, ami when you have that nico cousin John to come aud see you and to care for you." I cannot tell why Lizzy blushed ns she spoke. In her own mind she had set down this tine, blank whiskered fellow, John Langton, as Margaret's admirer, and I ex pect she had a quiet kind ol conviction that she liked him too much lor the lover of her friend. In school-girl fashion she used to think to herself, "Ah! I shall have no such good luck as to marry such a charming man, and thus get away from a stepmother al together." It Is not very often that a young ladles' school is allowed to have such a fascinat ing inmate a9 John Langton. ne was a man of the world, with a graceful, easy manner, and always had pleasant things to say to the excitable Lizzy. I am not the least surprised tnat tie became ner Deau ideal ot manly perfection. He took more notice of her than of any of the other girls. Lizzy knew it was because she was Mar garet's friend- but still It was very pleas ant to be thus distinguished. And so the weeks went on, and then the months took up their places with the past. The school girls were much more bearable to Lizzy now, sraiply because she never even thought of them. On her short life calen endar, a new era had been opened, and the "new style" dated lrom the arrival ot "our guest Margaret" at the Lienswood House. She had not overcome all feelings of re pugnance nt tho thought of her lathers marriage; hut her outbursts had grown milder, and were less frequent since our guest Margaret's influence had been upon her. It was astonishing how much Lizzy's beauty had to do with the expression of her face; and cousin John always sawlier under the most favorable circumstances, for her eyes positively danced with delight when he made his appearance. "What a sweet pretty girl she Is!" he had said more than once to Margaret; and he was quite right, for she was pretty when the good influence was upon her. But Margaret's visit was coming to an end, and no'one knew how to tell Lizzy of this. The first thing that gave her a fear on the subject, was the great black port- mauteauvthat Margaret had brought with her being put out to air in the little garden. "What does it mean?' she inquired oi Mrs. Markham. "Yon would never be so unkind as to smuggle Margaret away from me?" "Certainly not," replied Mrs. Markham calmly; " but we have both been afraid to tell you that la a very short time she must go." Lizzy was in a rage. She rushed np stairs to Margaret, who was dressing for dinner, taking it very easily, lounging in the arm chair in ner pretry pink oressing gown and brown velvet slippers. Pushing open the door without so much as knock ing, Lizzy told her she was in league with Mrs. Markham to deceive her. "I can not live with you forever, my child." Margaret said, smiling very gravely; " and it was my dread of some such behavior as this which made me try to conceal my approaching departure from you as long I could." ' Lizzy softened down. She could never be defiant long with Margaret. ; "Oh! take me with you!" she cried; I 'shall be heartbroken when you are gone!" She really was. in, a sad plight, poor child. ,-...,. .. ,..... . . , ; "For my sake," Margaret, said, "will you be gentle and obedient to Mrs. Markham when 1 am gone? and then I pray God we may meet again in a year."' . 'I will try," she answered quite in a sub dued way; "but I am afraid I never shall get . on, without you; and I shall never see ' Cousin John when you are gone of course not," she added with a bitter smile. "Don't be angry with me, Margaret," she continued, "but you know he is so kind, and understands me so much better than any one else, that It will be very dreadful to go back and be a dull school-girl again," ; And so they parted. .. -t: j, ..' vi Poor Lizzy! for the first few weeks she was an unhappy, broken-spirited girl, going softly about the house, and speaking only in short answersJMrs. Markham acted very , wisely, and took no notice of the surly manner and melancholy face.. The monot ony ot Lizzy's llie was horrible to her. She sat for hours at her bedroom1 window looking at the stile under, the beech tree, where she had lost seen and taked . with John,'' " , It was all over now. fane wouia have . .. s vi . . ..',.'.,,., uii r more pleasant speeches; no one would think of her now., . . , ,But youth stid healta Jrlump'b over1 il great deal' of discomfort. 'Lizzy lotnid ht room so very lonely,, that she joined, of her own accord, In the i-tiuliei of the school room. She scarcely ever thought liow vt her father's marrying sgaln. , . Margaret's visit had buen of the greatest . use to her iu this respect. All her fears, were now lerit Margaret should forget tlie promised meeting In about a year's time. And while she was worrying and fretting about tills, she received a letter from her father, arranging for her the very, racket by which she was to leave England. His letters lately had been full of plans for her happiness when she should return to him? a finished young lady. 'I am sorry to sayi she entirely forgot her desire to see.
