THE LEGISLATIVE TICKET.
We place at the head of wr columns
this morning the names of the gentlemen
yesterday selected by the Democratic
Convention as candidates for Senator and
Representatives in the next General As
sembly. The ticket is a good one, and
will givovery gencralsatistacuon. .it is
composed of representative menjtand
beingacombinationof. lawyer, fanner and
mechanic, it cannot be said that either of
these interests will be neglected. In
another respect, too, the nomination will
be acceptable inasmuch.as.thc gentlemen
are not confined to one locality the
Senator being from the Southern portion
of the county, and one of the Rcprceen
tativcs,fromt(cUyA and the other from
the north side of the river.

The Canadian authorities are busily'en-
gaged collecting and arranging the claims
for damages growing out of the last ,Fe-
nian raid, with a view to its formal pre
scntation to this government thiough the
British minister at an early" day: The
claims, it is said, aggregate about $5,000,-
000. The Canadians will likely have a
merry time in getting this little sum.
One Julius A. Palmer, Jr., has broken
cround in Boston with a Chincso house-
servant agency, and proposes to furnish
families with their cooks, and house
servants. The Philadelphia Press says
maliciously: "When this desirable , con
summation is achieved, the ladies of that
intellectual centre . can devote themselves
entirely to Emerson and his attractive
mazes of speculative .philosophy."
The New York Democrat says
"Stokes, the ex-secessionist, of Tcnncs
see, who turned scalawag in order that
he might be defeated for Governor of
Tennessee, is now trying to get ,10 Con
gress, lie will take anything he can
get." Very true, but the people of Ten
nessee or of his old congressional district,
do not intend to give him any office.

whom are, of course, of the Republican
faith, is frightful, and the worst feature
of all this is that the people seem not to
fully appreciate its enormity. In 1840,
says an exchange, the Democratic party
lost its power because one man, Simon
Swartout,. was a defaulter in the sum of
$40,000. Now we are informed offi
cially, by Executive Document No. 267,
that there arc 340 defaulters, ten of
whom togcther.are for six millions dollars
Let the people read and reflect.
The New York Herald says famine
and pestilence arc following close in the
wake of this bloody and destructive war
in the fairest departments of France. An
area of that country equal, perhaps, to
that of the State of New York has been
laid waste or exhausted of its cattle,
sheep, swine, brcadstuffs and forage, by
the great hostile armies operating therein,
and still the work of desolation goes on.
From the Rhine to the Seine, the inhabi
tants, not by thousands, but in .millions,
areleft destitute, or very nearly destitute,
of everything in the way of subsistence.
Thousands are roaming, about, not only
breadless, but houseless, and the summer
is over; nothing more can be produced
this year from the soil, and the winter
approaches. Famine is already among
those suffering people, and fevers, result
ing from war, hunger and exposure, have
already appeared in the fearful form of
an epidemic around and in Mctz and other
battlefields. There is every reason to
apprehend a great loss of human life
from famine in the French departments
ravaged by this war should it continue
even .a month or two longer.
TV ILL. HE ME WITHDRAWS !
It is charged that the nomination of
Gen. Woodford over Mr. Greeley, as the
Radical candidate for Governor of New
York, was secured by the free use of
money in buying up delegates pledged to
vote for Greeley. The nomination ap
pears to be any thing but satisfactory to
the(IUdicals.- The New York Herald
states that a document is being circulated
throughout the State, demanding the
withdrawal of Gen. Woodford, as the
only hope of keeping the Radical party
together in the pending campaign. The
New York correspondent of the Cincin
nati Gtoctfcwritcs under date of the
16th inst. as follows :
"Our political campaign promises to be
the mosr bitter which has been known in
this State for a long time. Many Repub
licans arc dissatisfied with Gen. Woodford
as the candidate for Governor, and a
movement has begun for his withdrawal,
though it is not likely to succeed. Dark
hints arc thrown out of bad conduct while
he was in the army, and .it is openly
charged that he obtained his nomination
by bribery, partly in promises of office,
and partly in cash payments. At a meeting
of thu Republican Associationof the Six
teenth Assembly District one member de
clared that Horace Greeley had been sold
out in the Convention by Mr. Lush and
his clique, and another member of the
Association loudly averred that there was
more damning corruption in the Saratoga
Convention than had ever disgraced
Tammany Hall. Altogether, there is con
siderable disgust at the present state of
the ticke', and the party vote will be di
minished. If Woodford withdraws there
will be a new convention immediately,
and the contest will be between Horace
Greeley, Gen. Robinson ond'Marshall O.
Roberts. Probably Mr. Greeley would
decline being a candidate for nomination."
Woodford has already stepped into the
mire so far that "returning were as tedi
ous as to go o'er."

Tlir. TAX OX DIVIDENDS.
The decision of Judge- Strong, in the
phia pn the 14th inst., in the case of the
Philadelphia and Reading Railroad Com
pany! againstEarns, Collector of Internal',
T- . . t J 1 ? 1 l. ' t J

toe tax on the dividends of .that. company,

Igjaicn. eu due ana were payable alter
Jan. II, 1870. to be roid and uncolleclable,
is of more than ordinary importance. The
plea' of the plaintiff sets forth that the
company declared- a uividena on me
capital stock on the 23d of December
last, on the earnings accrued between
- " il . ... -i . . e . .
July i, 186U, ana mo uaiu oi iuu
declaration; and made payable on and
after : Jan. 17, 1870. A return of
this dividend was subsequently made to
an Assessor of Internal Revenue, and a
tax of five per cent of the amount of the
dividend was assessed thereon and de
clared payable tin or before the 31st of
March; that Notice of the assessment was
duly given, and a demand for payment
was 'made upon the plaintiff by the dis
trict, collector; that the tax Tvas not paid
in response to the demand, whereupon
tho defendants, who were the collector
and deputy collectors, on the 5th of May,
1870, made, a distraint for the, tax, to
gether with five per cent additional there
to, and tfic interest accrued thereon, and
that this was the supposed trespass. The
real question involved in tho suit is
whether the net of" June 30, 1864, as
amended, authorizes tho collection of a
Wvernment tax upon dividends' declared
by railroad companies in 1869 and made
payable to stockholders in 1870. Judge
Strong held .that the tax in question is a
part or tho five per cent tax imposed upon
all incomes which, under the 116th sec
tion of the act, were to 'be assessed and
collected for the year "ending the 31st
day of l)ecember next preceding the
Yime of levying, collecting and paying
'said duty."" After carefully examining
land commenting on the several sections
of the, law under which the tax on divi
dends was assessed by the officers of tho
Internal Revenue Department for the cur
rent year, Judge Strong says in conclu
"Is, then, a dividend, declared Dec.
23, 1869, but declared to be payable Jan.
17. 1870. income of law or or laTO,
within the meaning of the act of Con
cress? I think it must be income of the
latter vear. True, it was earned by the
Company in 18691 but it was not available
to the stockholders. The act speaks of
income derived from any kind of proper
ty, etc It seems to contemplate a tar
upon income received or receivable, some
thing out of which the tax can be paid.
if it were not' so, tho tax might De ex
acted for that which never came and
never could come into the hands of the
taxpayer. The language of the 122d
section is also significant In speaking
of the eonpanics therein mentioned, it
declares they 'shall be subject to and
pay a duty of five per centum on the
amount of all such interest or cou
pons, dividends or profits, whenever
the same shall be payable.' In
other words, tha duty arises when
tho dividend is payable. And such is the
construction that has been given to the
act, in accordance with which the taxes
have been collected. Prior to the act of
1854 there was a tax on dividends at the
rate of three per cent., and when by that
act the rate was raised to live per cent,
the Commissioners of Internal Revenue
issued a circular, dated July 1, 1864, de
daring that 'all dividends payable onand
alter July 1, 1864, no matter when de
clarcd, arc subject to the duty of five
per centum.' I am not aware that any
different construction of the act has ever
prevailed. My opinion, therefore, is that
the dividend declared by the plaintiffs
.must be regarded as income of the stock
holders for the year in which it becomes
payable. It follows that the assessor was
without authority to assess a tax upon it.
and that the plea of the defendants docs
not justify the distress they made to en
force its payment by the plaintiffs, to
gether with the paj'ment of a five per
cent additional penalty. Judgment on
the demurrer is therefore directed against
Although this decision was only in the
case of a single railroad, it involves and
affects the validity of all the income taxes
save that known as personal income. Iu
other words, it decides in effect that all
the taxes collected since the first of Jan
uary last on the dividends of railroads,
banks, trust companies, savings institu
tions, insurance companies, canal, turn
pike and slack-water, navigation compa
nies and interest paid on tho bonds of
said companies and the taxes retained on
salaries of Government officials for the
same time arc invalid, and if sustained by
the Supreme Court, will have to be re
funded. It will be remembered that Con
gress, at its lact session, passed an amend
ed tax bill, section seventeen of which
construed the internal revenue act of
1864 to extend the collection of the tax
on these items of income to and for the
year 1870, but . also provided that they
should cease on the 1st of August,
1870. There had already been
much controversy between the
Revenue Bureau and the tax
payers a3 to the validity of these taxes,
and Congress, instead of reimposing the
income tax, passed an act construing
former laws on the subject Judge Strong
gives Congress a sharp rap for this kind
of legislation, and contending that con
struction of the law is a judicial func
tion, he construes it the other way. As
the taxes were to terminate absolutely on
the 1st of August, 1870, as provided by
the act of July last, the effect is to wipe
out the whole seven months' tax. The
taxes from these sources in the fiscal year
1869, amounted to $9,076,780; for the
fiscal year 1870, unofficial but very nearly
accurate, they were $10,100,000 Toler
ably accurate computation made at
the Internal Revenue Bureau lately
makes the total amount which would bo
open to reclamation, if the decision should
be sustained, nearly if not quite six mil
lions of dollars. The Internal Revenue
Bureau will appeal the case to the Su
preme Court, but it is admittlcd that the
position of the Judge on the law is very
strong. Judge Strong is one of the new
Judges of the United Stales Supreme
Court, appointed by Grant during the last
session of Congress.
The Newark Advertiser, referring to
the appointment of Hon. O. P. Morton
as minister to England says : "The foreign
affairs committee of the Scnato is the
diplomatic college of the United States,
and the shifting politics of the country
are the training school." Hence, it is
only here and there that mere politicians
have not been appointed, says tho Balti
more Sun, and when, in the case of Hon.
Revcrdy Johnson, an exception to-this
rule was made, and 'an important diplo
matic worlc effected, it.had to be nullified
in the interest of party !
EFFJJCT OF PEACE ' OIV THE
The financial articles inthc London.
journals of Sept. 13, betray not a little
uneasiness at what they call the disturbing
influences, of a "possibly sudden peace. n
"If there should "be a sudden peace,
and if any government wererestabliabed
inrParis" in which Europe felt, we--will-not
f ly complete confidence under the
circumstances that js impossible but
tolerable confidence, mucli money would
'leave London, and what remained would
rise ia value.. And this we say lor . sevt
cral.reason3. First, af it is, money "would
cp to Paris according to all common ex
change calculations: iut in lact it aoes.
nnf : irn Tipr:iiio tlie'ordinarvTiasis of ihose'
calculations is at an end. These calcula
tions universally assume that .there is no
danger from war or civil commotion "to
the transit of bullion. And just
now there is extreme danger. Bat
if the war and the commotion
should cease, this exceptional va
riation would be at an end, and money
woijld flow from us as usual. Secondly
there is a considerable sum cf money
(though how large no one knows) sent,
here for security, because of the war and
because of the revolution in France. . If,'
therefore, the war should on" a sudden
cease, and if a fairly strong government
should arise in Paris, tho reason why
this money was sent "here would be over,
and in alilto while it would bo. siiro to
leave ub. Thirdly, we have been buying
goods in France, incited more or less by
the low prices there consequent upon the
war. Some of the purchase .money ia
now left here for safe custody, .but all
woidd go at onco if Franco .became 03'
safe as usual-or at all like-it Lastly, as
soon as the. war is over, Franco certainly,!
and perhaps Germany also, must begin to
borrow largely. As yet most of the war
has been made on credit Receipts are
given to the persons whoso goods the sol
diers take, and these receipts are to be
cashed when the war is over.""
The inference from all this is, .that a,
sudden and marked rise in the rate of
discount must attend the restoration of
peace. The inference is probably cor
rect, but it cannot be that considerations
of that character can restrain a universal
wish that the conflict should end as
speedily as possible, no matter what the
effect may be in Lombard street, or in
Wall street Money in London, as well
as New York, is almost a drug in the,
market the supply is in excess of the
wants of legitimate business and even' in1
tho event supposed, there is no probability
of such an extraordinary demand lor it as
would advance the rate of interest beyond
tho point where it usually stands in sea
sons of universal peace.
It will interest many to. know that the
father-in-law of Dr. Livingstone, the
African explorer, told an audience at
Manchester, on the night of the 25th inst,
thht he felt sure that his son was safe.
