Th Internal Bey.nu Tan. -How th.aew Bill AffdOti iiffarent Int.rtiti. j The exposition mado by Mr. SchpHck in tbe House of Representatives, on Mon day, of tbe new internal revenue bill re ported from tbe Cummittee of Waya and Means, waa very full; and a it affords light as to the proposed taxation upoo lbs various interests to be affected, we give, in addition to what has heretofore appeared in onr regular congressional re port, the annexed interesting statements : Mr. Schjenck proceeded to Bbow what effect the bill would have an the cost of collection, and stated that tbe bill pro posed to abolish tbe system of whisky and tobacco inspectors paid by tbe distillers and manufacturers, and to have their duty performed by storekeepers to be paid by the Government. The saving in the aggregate out of collection ha esti mated at $689,970. The committee bad matured a system of supervision. In stead of special agents, tbe eommittee proposed that in every judicial district there should be a supervisor of internal revenue ; but, instead of being a Wander ing officer, he should be a responsible man, properly paid by the Government, having a fixed office, and whose duty it should be to supervise, look after, attend to, and report upon tbe conduct of all local revenue officers within the district Even he, however, would havo lo refer tbe case for final action to tbe Commis sioner of Internal Revenue, who ia to make all the appointments; and thus the system of responsibility, from tbe head ol tbe department downward, was to be maintained. .. " As to manufactures, be said that the policy of the committee accorded with the general policy indicated by Congress in the passage of the act of 31st of March last, and with tbefonrih resolution ia tbe Chicago platform. That act, however, exempted bread sto Us end unmanufac tured lumber; but this bill omitted that exemption. The committee had made the tax on gales as to the great body of manufactures one-fifth of on per eent. Exemptions that were to be made ia manufactures would be a matter to be discussed thereafter; lut they had az emptedfrom the general tax the one-fifth of one per cent, on manufactures of cer tain luxories, as, for instance, the manu facture of fine confectionery. Those were charged aix-lenths of one per cent. ob all over $5000.' Ornamental jewelry, one per cent, on all over $5000, and oa gold and silverware, firearms aodiianoi tbe committee had charged half of on per eent. j -1 In regard lo special taxes, the special tax oa betel was graduated ao that large hotels like tbe As tor House, the Fifth Avenue and YYillard's Hotel should be taxed much larger in proportion than small hotels. la regard to foreign broker. Ae aid thero ia a class of gentlemen . waa con from Europe and tak rooms at som hotel in New York or Philadelphia, wh have no office where, they can be taxed, but who, with .empire, aeiotiate for tbe aaln-of millions of property. 'These foreign commercial brokers shall pay for their tax $5000, and shall be pal into th poiteaUary if they are found exercising (heir vocation without paying tbe tax. . I now, taid he. touch briefly cpoa th subject of tax oa distilled spirit. W have provided that rwtailer aball bla 1 ified, and aba.ll pay, acrordine to th amount of their hoaineaa, $23, $50, $100, $200, $1000, severally, for their licaoaes, 1 and w aev defined a reul dealer t be, ! nt c:e who eli a rertsin imcist of liquor, but who tells tquor Ia quaotitiit itti MEMPHIS. n i"' a .

We propose that wholesale liquor dealers shall pay. two and a half per cent, twenty five times as much, and shall pay on all sales over $2000, Instead of over $50,000. : , V U I have made an estimate that from this source we can obtain about $24,000,000, judging by the statistics of the trade., I come then to the special tax imposed upon tbe distiller himself. We have made it $100. and $1 on each barrel pro duced. We have also added this system of taxation of sales. .We have also added to that tax a tax upon capacity.' We provide that there shall be $3 a day paid on the capacity of each distillery that mashes and ferments one hundred bushels or less, and. "an 'additional $3 a, day for each additional hundred bushels mashed and fermented. We have re tained the tax1' of $2 a gallon as a direot tax on whisky ; but I take occasion .to say here now that it is not the expecta tion,' I believe, even of the committee, that that amount of .direct tax will be retained ly the House or by Congress. If we had let it be known four montliB ago that whisky wag to be taxed only one dollar or seventy-fiver cents a gallon, we would: have Icmt about $4,000,000 of revenue. iu. "-"' ' '" I But I have come -'to 'tbe conclusion that keiping this tlx at two dollars t gallon will eventuate in continuing tbe rule of the whisky reign in this con u try, and that the tax, therefore, bad better be reduced.'' ! ' believe that - sevenfy-'five cents is about tbe standard at which the tax can be collected, and which' will make it impossible for illicit distillation to be carried on with piofit . Illicit dis tillers cannot carry on their business in concealed places, in cellars and garrets-r in Chicago and Philadelphia, the two great points at which most of the enorj mous rascality is carried on with any advantage at all, if we can beat them ip the market. . " . ' I From a number of calculations that have made, I can come to no conelugjpo but we shall get at least seventy millions out of whisky in the coming year, instead of thirteen millions, to which we are now reduced. - '. ' : ' ;k ! Iq reference to the income tax, it was lo be retained at five per cent; but sala ries from the Government, on which no' allowance was now made for house rent, bad debt, etc., were henceforth to be ac counted for as Other incomes, instead of having the tax deducted on tbeir being paid. i ..-!. v 'i ) In reference to the' tax on railroads, particularly horse railroads,' they were no longer to be allowed, under the reve nue law, to exact from their passengers that tax, or rather eight times the tax, but would have to apply for relief undar that bead to the local or municipal gov ernment. vr j : j v-.. I In reference to mineral oil, it would have to be put on the footing of general manufactures, or the present tax of one tenth of one per cent, would have to be dispensed with altogether. ' ' 1 As to tobacco, the committee had made a great many amendments in re gard to the collection nf the tax. - It had' endeavored to make the law rigorous, certain of execution, and to have the eollectian made through the medium of stamps. '''.'."; i Instead of th three classes of taxation, 40, 30 and 15 cents a psnnd, th com mittee now recommend only two classes at 40 and 16 cents. The committee also provided tbat smoking and chewing tobacco should be put up in small pack ages, and the tax paid with stamps- " 1 . Al to cigars, - the ' committee - had thought of doubling the present tax of five dollars per thousand; but that, per baps, would not be insisted upon. His own opinion was that thev ought to re duce the larifTon cigars, as not affording tbe protection which was intended for bomav manufacture. 'Taw -taxoa in putted cigars now averaged $76 on the thousand ; and the conaeqaence was that smuggling wacrtid on to n alarming extent- t Mr Schenck then red a statement of the financial condition of the country. A resume of his estimate give as the total anticipated ravvoae for lh next fical yar: Customm, $165,000,000; internal r-vanoe, $:10,5CO,000; puMic lands, $1,000,000; tniacwllaaeoas, $-K, 000,000; total, $106,560,000. Supposing bo increase of receipt from distilind spirits and tobacco over the recap's far ' th aecal year fnding Jaae 30, 1867, tbe alv-ve e.timate would be. reduced to $160 560.0CO.

The Govern ment would be able to pay bounties, to pay tbe interest on the public debt, and to pay all other expenses, and come out with tbat surplus at the end of the year. Jv . Th. Commercial Situation. : ' Business (say the New York Daily Bulletin) is probably in a better oondH tion to-day tbao it was a year ago; we bear fewer complaints of extreme dull ness, and failures are less imminent than they were during 1867. The csuntiy is each year settling down to a condition of uffairs in which the suspension of specie payments is regarded as an evil which cannot be remedied in a short time, and tbe expression of the opinion of the busi ness men of the country to day would re sult, wo believe, in showing a majority who believed that the full resumption of specie payments in the United States will .not occur in less than ten years. This conviction that we shall not reach a gold basis for several years to come has only become settled in the minds of the .'community wilhin tbe past twelve mouths, and its effect has been undoubt edly beneficial, i Uncertainty, as to the future is tbe most pernicious cause of e dull state of trade, and we congratulate ourselves tbat with the removal of all such chimerical ideas as that of an im mediate return to specie payments, or a pajmeut of the national debt in five years, or, on the other side, that further issues of greenbacks would bo a blessing, tbe commercial situation is vastly improved It is possible to find still further cause for rejoicing in tho prospect that the Southern States will presently bo recon structed in some way ; and once in tbe Union, no political party, of whatever opinion, will try to put them out again. The questions of suffrage, disfranchise ment, representation,: etc, will adjust themselves after a few years according to tbe majorities in the States themselves. In a commercial point of view it matters nott so much on what plan tbe Stales should be brought into tbe Union, as that they be brought in by some means, that military government should be with drawn and the future civil status of that large section of the country ahould be settled. This must be done before any considerable degree of business prosper ity ran prevail in the Southern States and this 1 long-expected event' is ap parently soon to be accomplished. How ever differently persons may look upon tbe means used to accomplish the end, it ean hardly be doubted that the event itself will favorably affect tbe condition of business..- t n i i '' j Where th. Mean Rebels ar. Absorbsd. i The "reddest-handed," most blood thirsty and merciless rebels dcvoloped by the recent war, are sow members of the Radical party. Look at Gantt, of Arkansas. Brown, of Georgia, and Hooper, of Texas I All of them fiery and original rebels, tbey were for hang ing, gutting and quartering every man in the South, who '.etrayed even moder ate. Union nmnlivitiea. Brown, of Geor gia, turned a deaf ear upon the cries of the thirty thousand starving Union sol diers in the Andersonville prison pens, and, as Governor of his 8tate, favored living the last man and the last dollar. Hooper lead a gaog of desperadoes during the last year of the war, and made it his boast that hi own hand had cut the throats of ixteen Union prison ers. These men, condemned, and even disowned, by the rebels who bravely took tbe field and fought the war to a close, ar now shining light in the Radical party. Tbey denounce Demo crats a "copperheads," and have an nncouquerable love for the flag they tried to disgrace, and the people whom it afforded them marvelous satisfaction to laughter! Decent rebels do sympa thize with the Democratic party; bat characterlees, baa, treacherous and vil lainous rebel belong to the Radical party, ta a man, and took a prominent part i a tbe nomination of Grant, aed the preparation of a platform for Northern Radicals to stand and operate upon. Uoqueationably, mean rebels are all ab sorbed hy th Radical party. Cairo DtmotraU ' tstu aad Her Fath.
