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

Wholesale1 liquor dealer pay at this
lime one-tenth of one per cent, on all
sales above $50,000. 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. Estimate of (upend it ore '

at the conviction that, if this bill became
a law, and if the revenue derived under
it from whiskey should amount to $70,
000,000, the receipts of the Government
for the year would exoeed by $43,000,000
all needed expenditures. 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
