Mr. Dawes, from the committee on ways and means, reported a bit abolishing the offices of assessor and aasistint assessor of internal revenue, and tramfrrlng their duties to collectors and deputj collectors. Alter the bill was read Mr. Dawes of ferred an amendment fixing be time it should go into operation on tbetst of July He proceoded to explain the bil He said that the law of tbe Cth of Jun, 1872, di rected the commissioner or intrnal rev enue to reduce, on or before thditof Jan uary next, tho whole number ofcollection districts to 80, and to diicbargiall collec. ton and assessors except one 1 each of thoso 80 districts. The bill nw propos od, was a substitute for that provision, be. cause it was evident that thn rduotlon of collection districts to one-lhirdof the ex isting numbar, would enlarge ae area of them three-fold; and would, wth a dimin ished number of officers, presot too great a temptation to frauds upon pvenuo. By passaro of this bill, the svings which would bo effected over the 4an providod by law In June last, wouli'bo $1,700,000, and over tbe existing sysUn,300 ,000, Mr. Myers of Ponnsylunia, called at tention to the fact that this bill would turn out of offlcn assessed, men who bad tbe most administrative uperlonce in con nection with internal re'entis, and retain II the collectors. He thouglt the govern ment should be authorized t) select men from both classes of official, and there fore he gave notice an ameidment which be would offer, legislating jut of office the assessors and collectors, aid providing for tbe subsequently appointment of tew col lectors. This, be said, would give the de partment a chance to select its best offi cials. Mr. Dawes moved the previous question, under operation of wiich tho amendments were agreed to, filing tbe time for the bill to go into operation July 1, 1873, and requiring the ctllectors to give additional bonds for their new duties, andjth bille passed.
