A Tremendous Burden of Taxation.
The county of Alleghany, Pa. is strug gling under an enormous railroad debt, which, added to that of the cities of Pitts burg and Alleghany, is sufficient to utter ly ruin any community less fortunate in tb posession of mineral wealth and in dustrial resources. At the opening of the December term of Quarter Sessions for that county, the . presiding justice, Judge Mellon, in his charge to the Grand Jury, made a full exhibition of the financial con dition of the country, hoping it might ena ble them to devise and suggest some p!.n to lessen the burden of taxation. From this charge we ascertain that the entire psaessed value of taxable property in tbe county and two cities is $27,655,092, divided thus: Rural district.... i... . -$13,615,C8C. Pittsburgh 10.C34.783. Alleghany 3.703,641. The iudebtments of the county amounts to- $3,321,061, of which $2,300,000 is railroad debt, and $2,124 costs on railroad suits. That of the city of Pittsbnrgh -mounts to $3,375,620, of which $1,800, 000 is railroad debt, $540,000 interest due ' on it, and $3,000 cost of railroad suits; and that of Allegheny City to $983, 053, of which $400,000 is railroad debt, $94,000 interest due on it, and $311 costs incored in railroad suits. The grand aggregate of indebtedness MiiounU to $7,602,642, so that, in fact, about one-thirtieth part of the .taxable property of the county, one-half part of the city of Pittsburgh, and one-third part of the city of Alleghany, belongs to the creditors of the county and municipanlies! And this, too, without including in the estimate what the Judge calls the "locn', township and boroogh debts, on the an nual tax for county and city expenses. .Taking $27,000,000 of the valuation bassis, the lax for the ensuing year foot tip the tremenduous aggregate of 62 mills, to which roust be added in each city a special assessment on its own railroad debt.- The aggregate tax for all purposes for the ensuing year is, therefore, estima ted, on a close calculation, as follows: For the Rural Districts 62 Mill. City of riltBbnrgh 102 " -' City of Allegheny..... 92 " '. .This is about as unpromising a picture as can be presented by any country or mu nicipal corporation in the world, and we are not surprised that it should be a mat ter of the gravest consideration to the prop erty owners of that community. . : There is no longer any hope that the fayment of this great debt can be evaded, t was incurred through the foolish credu lity of the custodians of the peoples inter ests, the more sanguine of whom, accord bag to the subsequent admissions, believed that tbe dividends would so far excede the interest lobe paid on tbe bonds that a sur plus would, flow into the county and city treasuries- sufficient to meet the current expenses of bothj and thus do away with taxation altogetheri When the inability Of the roads to meet the interest simply was demonstrated, the indignation was as great as the illusion has been strong, and an ittempt was made to repudiate the ob ligations by legal quibbles about the way the subscriptions bad been obtained aud imperfections in the letter of the bond. Suits' were cariied from court to Court with the almost unanimous result of a verdict against the country and cities. The Coun ty Commissioners refused to obey the or der of the Court and were put in prison, where they remained, we believe, till the expiration of their terms. But all this time interest was accruing and cost in creasing, so that now the interest in ar rears amounts to $1,352,390, and the costs unpaid to $5,985, The treasuries of the cities and county, are practically in the hands of the Sheriff aud U. S. Marshal, and as fast as the claims of one creditor are satisfied another comes forward, pros ecutes, obtains judgment, and puts his gent at the door of the treasury till the lust dollar is ji.-iid. The course pursued by the county and cities has made the bond-holders inexorable. A Tremendous Burden of Taxation. "What to do with the Darkies" A writer in the new Continental Month ly has new plan of settling the question of the disposal of the negro. He would eot-eoloirtae litem according to the sugges iron' bribe "President's Message, because "eight and a half Great Easterns, each -tefekng cite tap per month, could only ex port the annual increase of our Southern slaves. ii ,ts;proposed that they be at . liberty to nil .centre in one btate and mat Ttate be South Carolina! In showing the justice of the 'proposal, it is said that if the .present occupation by our troops continue juuch longer, there will be no while men left rn that Stale, neither is it likely that they will ever return. Terror aud pride compined will ever keep the native whites from re-poppmtjng that region.-- And, as SoelUr Batoliua was .especially the. State j which brought about this war for the ex ' press purpose of making the black man the basis of tbe society of that State, there would be a wonderful propriety in -carrying out that theory to perfection, and making the neero not only the basis of the society of tnat State, but the whole structure of society, top, bottom and sides. South Carolina produces cotton and rice and would, therefore, furnish the negro population with the means of life ' and leauisftes '-of 'trade. The harbor of Charleston having been sealed up by the Federal bulks, these articles would have to be exported by way of Beaufort, but thisj if we can judge from the Cocking of the negroes to that port since its occupa ' tion by Federal troops, would not be dis tasteful to the citizens of tbe colored State. ' All the warehouses which are left 'from the great fire, could be usee for sto ' rage, and if these were not enough, Forts Moultrie and Sumter, rendered useless now by the snnken ships, could each -contain vast quantities of the reservi crop. , The Charleston Mereury might be improved by having colored editors and publishers -.Whilst ' white offenders against the laws could occupy the tails and tbe cells wbicb have shut in the groans and sufferings of tbe slaws. : How does south Carolina like therpicture f , , . , Pittsburgh Matters.

Western Virginia News. Secession has been scotched in Western Virginia, not killed.' The rebels lose no opportunity of mischief, and will not as long as they are sworn and let go. The V beeling lntewgenctr of ibe 4th says: Information was received in the city yesterday that a day or two since a train of Government wagons, fifty in number, were captured between Weston and Sut ton by the secessionists. The information is that fifteen of the drivers were killed. Tbe rebels took all of the valuables from tho train and burned the wagonst ' . It Is also reported that the Norton Cav alry, Capt. Wes. Rowan, of this city, were recently captured at Sutton by a superior force of rebels, and that the town of Sut ton was.destroyed. - O ther rumors of secession depredations in thalconntry are also prevalent, and it is evident that a large forte of rebels have found their way into this comparatively unprotected country, and are making a desperate effort to repossess the Urritory. The rebel raid upon Sutton is confirm ed by later accounts.- It has been consid ered safe from rebel attack since the flight of Floyd, and was held by a single cavalry company, the Captain and ' First Lieuten ant of which were absent. The assailing party was 500 strong, and the Second Lieutenant held the fortifications about six hours against the superior force. Ammu nition giving out, the small Union force retreated and the rebels burned the town, sparing but two or thre horses. The rebels followed on towards Weston, and burned the two churches at the fiat woods, eight miles from Sutton. All the Government property at Sutton was destroyed, e aw The War Madness in Canada. Tne Toronto Globe of the 28th gives unmistakable evidence of the great military activity in the Province. Two of its largo columns are nearly occupied with notices of local military movements. The sedentary military of Toronto composed of seven battalions are preparing for reg- ular pdrill. Volunteers companies ' are springing up rapidly aud parading with drum and fife. Tbe employees of tbe Grand Trunk Railway, the Students of tho St. George.s Society have each formed rifle companies. A naval brigade cavalry sappers and miners and field batteries aie among proposed the organizations. Tbe papers on tbe opposite side of our lake talk wat like, aud speak of fresh activ ity in military matters. Gen. Williams Cninmander-in-chief in Qnnnady has re cently visited the principal towns for the purpose of looking after and locating for tificatious and he war fever has been fed by his presence. Nearly every town puts in strong claim for appropriations ana troops and extra zeal and loyally are re garded as potent influences to secure the eoveled Government patronnge. Gen. Wil liams has decided to make UolUngwood a naval depot for Luke Huron. He has given directions for the constrncticn of two batteries for the protection of the har bor, one to be located at or near the old Hurontario Mills, about a mile to the cast waid of the town, and the other on one of the group of islands known as the "Hen and Chickens," about three miles from shore to the westward. 'It is stated that the Canadian troops in the snowy regions of the Lower Provinse have had a new addition to their arma ment in the shape of gun-sleighs and that a contract to furnish them has recently been awarded to n carriage builder firm in Motitieal. News From Secesia. We lea rn from rebel sources that the fire at Nashville Tenn., the night of Dec. 23d destroyed property to the value of nearly million of dollars. It originated in the ordinance department owing to the negligence of a subordinate. There was an immense amount of shot and shell and fuses of the superior French pattern con tained iu some of the departments destroy ed. Several hundred heavy guns were also rendered vnlueless. Forty -eight Union prisoners were sent from Knoxville to Tusoaloosn, Ala., Dec. 28lh. . They were mostly East Tennes seans who have stood by the old flag which unfortunately failed to afford protec tion. That it did not, is due to the "mas terly inactivity" of officers and not to the lack of will on the part of privates. The Charleston Lighthouse on Morris Island which for many years had guided the mariners to Charleston harbor, was blown up by the rebel military authorities, Dec. 26th. It is a heap of ruins'. The blowing up looks as though tho rebels feared the city might be blown down. Tne Charleston" Courier appears to look upon the sinking of the stone fleet in the channel to the harbor very complacent!'. It supposes the fifteen vessels sunk will blockade 3,000 feet and states that (Jhar- leston harbor has a water front of about six miles, with numerous passages to aud from the sea. The first heavy north-easter it savs will dissipate the obstructions. lue using oi teunessee, at xtasuviiie is issuing notes from one dollar down to five cents! Lane and Gen. Phelps. The member of Congress Mr. Clark from the Jefferson District, N. Y., in a letter to his paper, the Wntertown Jour nal. dated Christmas, says: Senator Lane has left the benate and has gone home to resume bis comronnd, with Major General's commission iu his pocket This act on the pa'rtof the Gov ernment, after nis inie aoie spcecu iu i-ju Seate. in which he declared that he would prosecute the war with a view only to crush out rebellion, letting Slnvery take care of itself, indicates pretty well that the Administration is not as tender-footed on that subject as it has been. We think the time for relurniojE fugitives who come into our camps has gone by. liven tren. Phelps has not been recalled, and Secreta ry Cameron said two or three days since, that be would not be, and tunt nis doctrine met his approbation. We learn, too, from a reliable source, that Gen. Lane submitted his plan of the campaign to tha President, the Cabinet and Gen, McClellan, and it was most cor dially approved by them all. This he de termined to do that a perieci understand ing of bis policy might be knowu. The Pittsburgh Gazette of this morn inrr (3lUavs: Geo. Lane, has been assigned a com mand in Kansas and Western Missouri. It is undirstood that he will, with the ap probation of the Government, make tbe exptarnm-nt of employing slaves. of rebels in his military operations in the West, us ing them iu the transportation aud com missary departments mainly. By taking band-mills, it . is thought that slaves can grind corn enough daily to subsist the ar my anywhere in Arkansas or Texas. - Champion Vauchan will lie. on Gen. Lane's Staff, with the rank of Colonel. He is a South Carolinian, but for many years a noted Anti-Slavery man. When Lane was confirmed a Brigadier General by the Senate, the other dav, Vaughan sent a dis patch to Leavenworth in these words : "Lane is confirmed. Glory to God ! Let tbe rebels hunt their holes ! - -- The Allotment System. The folowing is the new law appointing Commissioners to pot the allotment sys tem in operation through the army. The third section abrogates tho Sutler's lien We observe that in some portions of tho army the law is being acted under and that liberal allotments of .their pay have been made by the soldiers to tlWir farui-4- lies or friends: ' " " An Act to provide for allotment certifi cates among tbe Volunteer forces. Be it euactei by tlie Senate and House of Representatives of United States of America in congress assembled, That the Presideut of the United States shall ap point for each State having : volunteers in the United States service uol exceeding three persons who shall be authorized by the President's commission to tisil tho several depailmenls in the army in which volunteers from their repective Slates may be, and there procuce from said volunteers, from time to time their respective allot ment of their pay to their families or friends duly certified in writing and by them or some commissioned ofieer of such Department attested in pursuance of such orders as may be made for that purpose by the Secretary of War and upon which cei lified allotment the several Paymasters shall at each regular payment to troops, give drafts payable in the city of New York to the orderof such persons to whom such allotments were or may be made. Sec. 2. And be it further enacted, That each of the persons appointed as Commis sioners to carry into effect tho preceding section of this act shall receive no pay or emoluments whatever, from the. Treasury of the United Slates. Sec. 3. And be it further enacted, That the 5 lb section of the act -of June 12, 1858, giving sutlers a lien upou tbe sol dier's pay, and tbe same is hereby repeal ed, and all regulations - giving sultlers rights and priviliges beyond the rules and articles of war, be and the same is hereby abrogated. . Rebels Going to Europe. The Slate Department has been inform ed that a route exists through Canadnb by which emissaries from the Confederates escape to Europe. Measures have been taken to cut off this means of communi cation. .Tames trom ftecessia, it oniy nine to reach Chicago or Detroit, and thus get into Canada, proceed by the Grand Truok Railway to a point where they lake a colo nial mail route, not much used, by which they reach Dew Brunswick, whence they go direct lo Halifax. It is comparatively easy to get into Canada through Illinois, Ohio or Michigan, and once within the British provinces, the rebel travels to Eu rope unmolested. SPECIAL NOTICES. RAILROAD TIME TABLES.
