In the last, tbe writer, like another Miriam, taxes

the Money Go?—Hoira u

Change 2
In a recent article under the above caption, wo
gave a briet exhibit of the financial condition of
Chicago: among other things showing the valua
tion of the real and personal estate of this city;
the percentage of taxes levied for the five ‘years
post, nrd the amoont realized from snc hlevy.
We showed that the valuation of property for the'
yearlrCS was $42 022,821, an excess on the average
orthefonrjearsprecedingof $3^540,M5. We showed
that the levy for the year 1663 was twenty
mills on the dollar against an average pf twelve
mills for the preceding four years, on tne Increas
ed vacation, and that If the levy had been assess-,
cdon the old valuation of $30,774,779 the per cent*
ape v. onld have been over twenty-three mills on the
dollar. We showed in dollarfi.and cents, that the
expenditures for municipal purposes had leaped
from $£73,339.92, the average of the four preced
ing years, to £352,455,43, a difference of $373, >
116.56. We gave the Copperheads credit for
the one mil! and three' quarters excess of the War
Fund Tax, and showed that there still remained an
excess of $298)520.62 In favor of Republican
management, and challenged them to show in
what respect the city had been better governed or
benefited by this excessive expenditure. . Wc
showed also that the cost of conducting municipal
affaire was five dollars and seventy cents per aa
. ncmforcach'mas, .woman and child of the one
hundred and fifty thousand which go to make np
our population.
Let us see whether. In respect to the cost of this
luxury of city government, we are not a great dis
tance in advance of cotemporary cities. In 1833,
in Philadelphia, with, an estimated population Of
COO,OOO the amoont nald for taxes was $2,331,000.
With a population fodrtimes greater than Chicago,
Philadelphia requires a tax only two and three
quarters times larger. If she paid a tax equal to
that imposed l>y the Copperheads oi Chicago, the
amount would reach $3,309,825.92. Philadelphia
spends more in a single month in keeping her
streets dean than Mayor Sherman expends daring
an entire term of office. >■ - •
In Cincinnati, the population in 1860 was 162,009.
Her annual tax list reaches $671,911. With 12,000
more population than Chicago, her taxes are leas
by $181,911.48.
In Boston, that Puritan city, that centre, of all
Republican abomination, that cesspool of Aboli
tionism and miscegenation—as the Copperheads
arc pleased to denominate it—the chief city of that
State, which, when the South shall have conquered
her independence and peace with healing wings
shall brood over the nation, and the Union is re

168% with on estimated population of 190,000, the
tax was nine nulls and three tenths on a dollar.
Equally favorable results will be reached In the
examination of the eta tie Lies of Detroit and Buf
falo. In New Tork where the Copperheads have
bad the control of the city government for seven
years, the expenses have Increased from $7,000,000
to $15,0(0,0' 0. an advanpc almost, If not quite pat
allelcd by the advance In this city. There is rea
son for this increase. Copperheads as a general
thing, are tax-eaters, not tax-payors, and bare no
interest in keeping down expenses. ' '
We have said that the taxes raised for 1563 were
in excess of those of . previous years,'
and It becomes a question of some Importance to
know where this money has gone., If the city is
any better governed, if-the police force is more
efficient, if tbc streets arc cleaner, if the officers of
the city do their duty better, if the sidewalks and
improvements of the city are better preserved, re
paired or extended, there is then some reason for
this extraordinary expense. On the contrary, if
In all these respects the city is worse then tuere
le no excuse for it, and the citizens can justly hold
those in authority to a strict rcsponslbilltr. Let

average Lamp tax was $40,832,50, and this be it re
membered was assessed npon the real estate in the
lamp district benefited by the lamp-posts —that Is,,
the real estate within a radius of SO') feet. The
new charter authorizes a maximum tax of two
mills on tbc dollar for lamps on all property In tbo
dry, real and personal. When this provision was
Intcried, it was not supposed that it would be nec
essary to levy the whole of that tax for many years,
but It was thought best to have a margin sufficient
for the time when the city should have enlarged
her borders, and attained a population of 600,000
souls. As we have said, the average of the Lamp
tax until the year 1863, for the four years preceding
was and the dty paid the cost of tie
lamp posts, in 1863, the entire two mttt tax upon
thera'uaiionof t42,*Si£siicai levied, producing
$85,245,050, This year what lamp posts were
ordered were paid for by a special assessment npon
the pro pert v benefited.
Comptroller Bayes in his sixth annual statement
of the receipts and expenditures of the city of
Chicago gives the following as the cost of the
Lamp service for the fiscal year ending April Ist,

no Increase in the price ofgas; very few lamp posts
have been located—about a dozen In an—-and
the expense therefor Is met by a special as

for lighting.and cleaning have appreciated bnt a
trifie, if at all; repairs nave not Increased, and
vet (85,245,65 has been expended upon the

according to Comptroller Hayes'; report.. There Is
no reason why the expenses <rom April Ist. 1863,

[From Our Special Correspondent.]
Military Items arc on the decline. A small
skirmish with, guerillas Is reported In the
Southeast, the particulars of w uich.ypU had
by telegraph. It Is evident that the rebels
are bent "on plunder ln that section. - Free-,
man, the big-gun of-the guerillas-, prudently
remains south of the State'line, and may_
maintain himself by concealment in tbejOzark
.mountain region for some lime yet. He k
there without any special design beyond
harassing the Union , troops, and making *
dash occasionally upon -small bodies of
troopa in exposed localities. By his presence
however, ho compels all Union commanders
to keep'on the alert, and to divert a large
'force-whichmight be otherwise employed in
driving the rebels southward, to merely 'pre
vent Freeman from doing damage to Union
men's property in- Arkansas and Missouri.
Our own jcavalry are; scouting around *in all
parts of southeast Missouri, but they seldom
.meet any of Freemen's men, and it seems
pretty certain that: we have nothin" to fear
l;om the depredations of this rebelgang to
any considerable extent. ' ;
Affairs iu North Missouri are already more
tranquil than they were prior to the advent
of Gen Fisk. The return of “amnesty rebels,”
however, is causing some trouble in a few
counties.' In Putnam and Livingston coun
ties the people have informally resolved that
no rebels returned from the Southern armies
shall reside in their midst, amnesty or no
amnesty, and in -several instances this reso
lution has been carried oat with some show
of violence, caused by the resistance of the
parties. The Copperheads ere very much
moved because some veteran soldiers, on a
furlough in the interior, have participated in
these so-called “outrages” onxebels. A man
who was Indicted, in. Kentucky for helping a
fugitive slave to escape, and was about; to be
taken from Lewis county, in this State, -for
trial In' Kentucky, under the requisition of
Gov. Bmmlette, was:rescued by some sol
diers in., citizens, clothes, and the Deputy
Sheriff who had him in charge was ducked
for his pains. This Is another terrible; out
rage according to. the Cops, and of coarse
meets with the!/ unmlngled Indignation.
A lari© number of incendiary Arcs have
occurred lately, at various points in the' inte
rior. and some of the finest dwelling? left
In the State have been destroyed.. *As the
property has almost Invariably belonged to
Union men, the .inference Is that the fires
have been the work of Secessionists., The
inauguration of this secret house-burning
practice is eminently .worthy of rebels.; Bat
tbc lesson willnot be forgotten. Afewinore
examples of this sort will witness the
wholesale extermination of secession sympa
thizers in some counties, and the good thus
accomplished will repay the cost - Yet It is a
just revenge, as boa happened la several
cases in Boone and Saline counties, that the
bwners Of valuable bulldlsga thus destroyed,
have been the very men who .have tried to
carry favor with both sides by calling thenw
selves Union men rind yet favoring every
secession measure thathas come - up. They
have seen the beauties of secession by losing
their houses and ought to be confirmed by
such experience in their Unionism.
Since the city election, no event of impor
tance has occurred in the political history of
the State. Everything goes to show that
there will be a strong fight In the radical
ranks, when the State Convention meets, up
on the question of sending delegates -to the
Baltimore Convention! - The Germans are al
most unanimously opposed to such a coarse,
but tbc Americans, with some exceptions are
in favor of it. Both sides are urging the Re
publican National Committee to postpone
the National Convention until September, in
ordyr to see what turn.the war will take du
ring the summer and to endeavor to reconcile
the differences In the party, although the rad
ical Germans, through their newspaper or
gans, and meetings, and orators, declare that
it makes no difference, -„they will support
Lincoln, excepting in an almost impossible
contingency. ...
Tbc Democratic or Copperhead' party In
this State, Is os inharmonious us everywhere'
else, with this addition, that here the ene
mies of the Government avow themselves se
cessionist* openly, whereby in otherplaces
they prate loudly about the Constitution and
the Laws, and tbc Nigger war. The soces-’
slonists comprise at least two-fifths of all the
null-radical party., The so called War Demo
crats who support Gen. McClellan! for the
Presidency, constitute .another two-flflhs.
They possess . strong -hatred for Yallandig
.liozn, Fernando Wood, ana the secession
Democrats.. The other fifth of the Anti-Rad

Emancipation party, Ireaded by Frank F.
Blair, Jr. These varions elements- are ready
to*fight each other sep irately on the Presi
dential question os they have unitcdlyfooght

State in the Union whose electoral vote is
more in doubt, than Missouri. Parties are
so thoroughly mixed up that it is impossible
to tell with, any degree of confidence how

The disloyal clergyman qncstion-is again

'School Presbytery of this district, in deciding
that a minister named Mitchell, who had
been a Chaplain in the rebel army, and re

is stronger still, bn account of a second reso
lution ot the same body that Her. 8. B. Me-
Fheeters, of this city, about whom snch a

giving a license to .Mitchell, whose treason

Bcmoval of the Pennsylvania Capital

A till has passed the Pennsylvania Senate,

of the bill becoming a law. The Pittsburg

Harrisburg was selected as the capital of
the State at a time when it was about mid

was a week's journey from Pittsburg to Har

leading cations of ancient or modern times
to locate their scats of government, at their

Os UoAJtn I. C. R, TV Packet Lite. )
PsssxKQßa Steakxb “Mollib Able.” V
April X 4,1631, : J
It has been my good fortune to travel on
tbc new and magnificent steamer “ Mollle
Able'* on her first trip from Memphis to St.
Louis. Ilesm tbat 1b the Intention of the
owners of the steamers “Mollle Able,” “W.
R. Arthur,” and “Atlantic,” to establish a
line of boats to rnn In connection with the
Illinois Central R. B. to Memphis, Vicks*,
berg and New Orleans, thus adding another
link between our large and thriving cities on
the lakes and New Orleans, the great com
mercial mart of the South. Since the power
of steam has been subservient' to man there
has been no portion of tho vast Western
waters where the steamboat has become the
great requisite for trade and travel as on the
Mississippi river between the porta of Cairo
and New Orleans. Captain Able who Is the
projector and principal in this new organiza
tion, has long been identified with tho Mem
phis and St. Louis Packet Line, and bnllt up
a large and increasing trade between those
two ports, but now the steady increase ol
trade and travel over the great thoroughfares
of the North, has induced Captain Able
.to extend his enterprise by building
much larger and more mignlflcent
boats to' run In connection with the great
railroad artery of our noble State. The en
ergy and perseverance shown in the building
and outfitting of these elegant boats should
give him the well corned title of Commodore,
and will earn for his newline a still higher
reputation, a sure fortune and the worm
thunks of the traveling public.
The requirements oi tho trade demand large.'
strong and fast boats, and the “Mollle Able,”
the subject of this notice has been built ex
pressly for the trade. She has just made her
first trip, and proved an entire success, com
bining all the qualities requisite for the New
Packet Line between Cairo ~ ■
ci,i, u nnn nf *» - r«ew Orleans,
w ■ one or **«» most magnificent of the
—pc neet of river palaces that now floats on
the Father of Waters, the pride and adml
ration of her owners,and credit to her builders,
wbo can justly point to the steamer“Mollie
Able” as their chief work of art. The owners
have thejproud gratification of presontlugto
the. pauilc one of the finest specimens
of steamboat architecture that has
yet floated on Western waters. She combines
strength of material with graceful model,
making her light and fleet* while her great
size and capacity enables her to easily carry
a burden 01 1,200 tons. The cabin and upper
works are built in the most modem stylo,
pleasing to the eve and attractive, with an
elaborate arabesque finish, n<*at and durable,
mekieg her remarkably beautiful as she floats
on tbc waters replete with animation and life.
9«r magnificent cabins can accommodate 120
passengers with state rooms, and 100 more
cun be furnished with largo.donble cots—
while her guards and spacious lower docks
can accommodate an army of emigrants and
their moveables—l- avlng abundance of room
for freight, stock and fuel, and also for the
crew to perform their du*ies. In her con
struction and outfit no expense bos been
spared - to insure safety with comfort, speed
with capacity, beauty and durability combin
ed with elegance and substantial build, tho
boat costing the round sum of $130,000.
The cabins are neat yet gorgeous, with
tbc most superb furniture and outfit,
all in the most sumptuous style and costly
material, bnt conducive to comfort and lux
ury, case and beauty.' There arc ninety-six
’arge state-rooms, richly famished, with cur
tains and hangings of rich lace and satin bro
catcile, hair mattresses on Hawes’ patent
rprinp berths, linen sheetings, washstands,
wardrobes, and all the appliances and com
forts necessary for tho requirements ofpis
sengers. In addition to the state-rooms,
ore two exquisitely arranged bridal chambers
most superbly fitted op with costly : ond rare
.materials, huge mirrors, marble washstands
and bureau, largo mahogany and walnat bed
'slcds, heavy drapery and hangings, downy
pillows; in fact, everything that the most
fastidious bridal party require or desire. Tho
ladies cabin Is covered with a rich velvet car
pet of. rare beauty, corresponding In fine
taste with tho rosewood furniture. The main
cabin carpet is a cholto EngUsh’bruescla. and
in the outfit of the main cable, it Is but little
. inferior to the ladles department. The chan
deliers and pantry were selected in New
York,. by Captain Able, whose taste and
‘ judgment is unquestioned. The most stri
king feature of attraction is the magnificent
full length mirror that adorns the ladies’ cab
in. Ills French plate gloss, 11 feet high and
feet wide, set in a massive frame of gilt
and rosewood combined. This mirror Is a
splendid design of the German gothic style,
taken from a sketch in the •athedral at Co
logne of the tomb of the three great kings of
ot the Goths. This mirror is of the richest
design, rare beauty and magnificence, resting
on a console tabic with a marble top, tho
whole filling up the entire after part of tho
cabin.. It was. designed and pat np by J. V.
Escott, of Louisville, Ky. Confronting the
mirror stands a full toned rosewood piano.
This unique packet is provided with a well
fitted np nursery, a laundry room, wash
..rooms, and servants’ rooms, together with
bitli rooms for ladles and one also for gentle
men, a ladies dressing room, a sitting or
• withdrawing room and ladles’club or lunch
room. The gentlemen’s bar, clerk’s office,
barber shop, pantry and pastry rooms, are
all as complete as could bo conceived,
and supplied in. profusion with all the varied
•requirements of each department. The di
mensions of this clcgantpackct arc os fol
lows: extreme length, 2S3feet; 78 feet ex
treme width; 8 feet depth of*hold. Her
machinery Is large and massive, with power
well applied. The driving engines are two
In number. Cylinders SO inches diameter,
with 8 feet stroke. Working water wheel 33
feet diameter, 15 feet length of backet. The
steam Is generated in five huge boilers, 40
inches In-'diameter, with 21 return fines in
each—an improvement which secures expe
dition In raising steam and economy in fuel.
In accordance with this progressive age,
steam is applied and used in ail departments,
doing tbc manual labor by means of a steam
freight holster and steam capstan. Also,
steam fire engines, and an abundance of pipe
and hose for but and cold wider, for use or
case, of fire; in addition to which she is
abundantly supplied with all other requisites
for safety in case of accident —life boats,
buoys, life preservers, etc. Tbc painting of the
boatdtimandsparticnlarattcntioD, ositis done
in a most satisfactory manner, and adds ma
terially to the beauty of her appearance.
The cabin is painted a glossy white of virgin
purity, without stain or blemish, aud pre
sents a rich and beautiful contrast to the dark
carpet, and the rosewood and mahogany far
.niture. The painting was done by a St. Louis
bouse, Thornburg & Co., famous for their
good work. The boat is commanded by Cap
tain Chas. P. Warner, Wm. H. Rhodes
chief Clerk, and officered by skillful, compe
tent boatmen, and has already mado a very
successful trip, fully realizing the expecta
tions of her owners and the public, ihave
been lengthy in my description of this fine
boat, but 1 have enjoyed many comforts on
board, and received every attention that a
trader could expect from her agreeable and
gentlemanly cmccrc, and I hold It to be the
dty of all travelers, whether at a hotel or
on a steamboat, that when they find that
everything comes np to oil the requirements
and necessities of tho traveler, they should
make a note of It for the benefit of those who
follow. Nobthwest,
Death of John C« Civet.
[From the Congressional Globe.]
Died, at bis residence, near Washington,
on the morning cf the 10th instant, John C.
Rives, editor ot the Congressional Globe, in
the sixty-ninth year of his age.
Mr. Rives was a self-made man.' Without
the means to obtain education in schools, be
became well verted in Lthe business of the
world by his aptness for observation and'
readiness in applying his faculties. He was
sbillfnl and successful in the various pursuits
to which he devoted hU laboriously useful
life. * ♦ **
, He made no ostentation ot largesses, but
his books show that In a single year he paid
out $17,0W to support the wives of soldiers
enlisted in the District, besides innumerable
aids In smaller amounts to individuals. He
was a devotee in Ids friendships—gratitude
was a religion with him—and in all the rela
tions of social life he indulged those around
him with the most affectionate kindness,
overtasking no one but himself and parting
with none worn down in the service ot his
establishment, but making them its pension
ers when no longer suited to arduous exer
tion. He would not even dispose of aa old
horse incapacitatefffor use, but has hod as
m&nv as five at one lime on his hands kept in
good condition pb Incapablea tor what they
bad done when able. W Ith a bosom fall of
tender affections, be '■ns so averse to preten
sion that none but those in most Intimate re
lations with him could see through the dis
»TilsC his blunt manners and sturdy exterior
put over them.
He came to Washington more than forty
, cars since and engaged first as ejerk In some
printing office, and afterwards in some of the
Departments, finally laying hold of the
Globe which he lifted out of embarrassment
and supported ever after like aa Atlas. His
management was unexceptionable as the
besides partner- He was never a partisan,
fied althoueh on. great national .questions
f.greclnginthe main with Jackson’s policy,
he saw much merit in portions of that urged
by his. great antagonist, (Mr. Clay,) whose
patriotism in maintaining the country’s
rights over the Union and in its foreign rela-’
tiers, be' always held in.profound homage.'
Els partner,, a more vehement party man,
was held in check by his sound
ai'dtcmperate judgment. •
-It.was on Mr. Rives’ suggestion that the
scheme ot having all sides heard fairly in de
bate by publishing Impartial reports of Con
gressional proceedings, was adopted. = The
editor, combatted guch views of the oppo-
the Administration in Congress as
he thought assailable; but it was Mr, Rives ;
core to see that no report should do injustice
to - a 'speaker. At first but the outlines of a
discussion were given, in the X?206«,- . It was
ft and'that epitomes were unsatisfactory, and
Mr. Bivee, bv degrees, brought the reports
to the perfect state which havo rendered the
debates of Congress, for more than & quarter
of a century, an atuiumtic record. 7
Thifi multiplication ol copies'enabled Mr.
Blves to execute.the work ol reporting and
printing for less than one-third of the price
for which similar work hpd ever been ob
tained in England or the United, States.
Ch: ngea Lave,however, been made in respect
to thewamber of the reports disseminated,
which,' together with the Increased price of
material ami labor, have, it is ascertained
by the Printing'Comipittccs? made reporting
a. losing business for the last few years', to
such an extent as to render its contlnn.nee
impossible .unless the,6rig|nal terms of the
' contract. *hc nld he restored, or some other
provision, made to matniftin Che establish

« K<lncoin Is Elected and t am Free.**
At the serenade of Ooveruoril-uiu, at New
Orleans, Judge E. 2L Darrel, in responding
to * toast to the Governor, said:
The first thing that brought Mr. Lincoln to
his personal knowledge wqp his election its
President of the United States in 19S0. He
knew that he was elected fairly by the popu
lar vote, When, the morning after the elec
tion, the news came of hi* election, a little
negro came to him while he was vet La bed,
ana with all the enthusiasm of which young
Africa was capable, exclaimed; “Lincoln is
elected and 1 am free.'* He believed then,
and he had 'since that time no reason'to
change his .opinion, that, the negro under
stood the contest In the length and breadth,
its width and depth, os well os we did, and
from that moment he had labored with a cer
tainty In bis own mind that God bad resolved
that through this great contest slavery should
cease to exist. That, as Inasmuch as the
white man was the first slave, the black man
should be the last.
; The Diamond Wedding.
Our readers bare Dot forgotten the famous
“Diamond Wedding,” in New York at which
aMlee Bartlett bargained herself away to the
highest bidder—who was a mulatto ffom
The Editor of the Milwaukee THwonrire
writes from Havana as follows:
It will be remembered that when the Ca
ban Oviedo married Miss Bartlett of New J
York, it was termed on account of his lavish
.gritts’ “The Diamond Wedding.” Has the
wedding resulted happily? As I was in the
cars by the Guinea route to Matanzas. it oc
[ enrred to me that Senor Oviedo, had planta
tions near that famed Pan of Matmzas. i For
tunately I found people who knew some
thing ol the Senor. One thing Is certain be
is immensely rich—not so wealthy os Aldo
ma, but sUU Ids property Is counted among
the millions. What of him? We do not
hear much good. He la reported to.hare an
extensive harem of his slaves and Is the pu
tative father of 25 or SO yellow plccannlmues.
To speak in brief—he was called an “old
wretch,” His yonng American wife is repre
sented under different aspects—some say shq
is contented—others that she Is miserable.
My own'conviction is that she baa plenty of
money to spend, and Is not likely to b<j yeyy
miserable—as sue married ' er money, anil
Ehc Las-for Ovlcdi’fi planta
lions arc superb. She has no child of her
cun-bat c.n tnrri her attention to Ovlado a
yellow children. From what I learned, I
came to the conclusion that Oviedo's social
position Is not equal to his wealth—tliat Is t
even his enormous wealth docs not assure
him or his wife a cord al reception among
the first society of Cuba.
