Thy ahowa that we are not tho only Bepublio that baa now and then a little conflict of opinion. But in Trance such an event is more liable to produce excitement than in this country, where on an emergency, tho people could carry on the entire business of govern ment without a delay of more than twenty-four hours. On the proposed amendment to the Consti tution of the (State, raising tho salaries of the Circuit Judges from lifteen hundred dollars to twenty-five hundred dollars, the vote in this Congressional District was as follows : Rcrrien County, Vote not canvaeBod. Cass County, Yes, 521 No, 2,303 Kalamazoo County, Yes. 2,465 No, 1,08 Joseph County, Van Daren CouDty, Yes, 780 No, 1,213 Yes, bOl No, 2,235 Casa, St. Joseph and Van Baron gavo major ities aggregating three thousand six hundred and forty-six agamst Kalamazoo's majority of one thousand throe hundred and seventy-seven. We have heard it said that Berrien County gave a majority of about two thousand against the proposed amendment. Iu the Lansing Republican of November 21, 1870, we find the table of the ofheial canvasa by the State Board of Canvassers of the votes cast for I'rcsidential Electors, the various State officers, and the three proposed amendments to tho constitution, at the recent election. In the table of tho vote on the amendments we notice that the returns from nine counties were not reported, and in tbo table of tho canvass of the votes for stale oncers six counties are not reported. lha vote, as exhibited by tho table, on the salary amendment shows an aggregate of sixty three thousand ono hundred and fifty b'ix votes in favor of tho increase, and an aggregate of tfimicsurl airrVti himrlro1 nnrl nitty " o- seven votes against an mcreae;, maiuuii hundred and seventy nine majority in favor of the proposition 44 as canvassed and declared by the Board this morning," (Nov. 21 th). Now, we would like to know why tbo Board was in bo much haato to. declare the result in the manner they appear to have done, without first sending for the returns of the counties which had failed to send them in, as the law requires them to do. Berrien county is said to have given a large majority against the amendment, yet there are no returns from that county on the proposition in question, although its vote for Electors and State officers were canvassed by the Board, This, on its face, looks very much like sharp practice, and raises a suspicion that all was not fair. At this present writing we are advised that if the vote from the nine counties not can vassed had been counted the amendment would have been defeated. We are aware that the "ins" are anxious to have the salaries raised, but the 14 outs" the people who pay the salaries by taxation aro averse to any, increase. In this county, the vote on that amendment was eight hundred and four for it, and two thousand two hundred and thirty five against it or an adverse majority of one thousand four hundred and thirty one. The people want no unfair tricks played upon them. If the amendment has not been fairly carried, the best thing that can be done is to re-canvass the vote and declare the result fairly. CvT Since tho above was m type we have re. ceived the Lansing Republican, which states that the vote on the salary amendment is to be re-canvassed. Washington, 1). f. Dec. 1. Congress coa venod at noon to-day. YASHINoroN, D. C, Dec. 4. Samuel J Randall, of l'ennsylvania, was nominated for Speaker of tho House of Representatives by the Democratic caucua, receiving 73 votes to G3 for Mr. Cox, of New York. The Repnblican Senators ia caucus to-day appointed a committee to revise the standing committees and report at a meeting to be called hereafter. No other action was taken. It was understood, by common consent, that nothing should be done at present in regard to tho elec tion of a President of tha Senate pro tern., nor was any diepoeition manifested to take action for the present concerning existing political complications. The Cabinet is in session, and the President is reading his Message to the members. The document is complete, but will not be sent to Congress today. It maybe that tome addi tions will be made before it leaves the Execu tive Mansion. l'rorn tbe Landers' Magazine for Nov., 'TG. The Imci icon Jlaiikrra' i90Cial ion. In financial as well as in political history we often tad that iu distant places similar move ments begin at tho same time without any con cert or mutual knowledge. The operation of this principle is illustrated in the organization of tho American Lasers' Association at Phila delphia. A similar association has lately been formed among the baoas of Great Britain, and there is little re two a to doubt but that both these societies have their origin in necessity, and are capable of rendering great services to the cause of sound banking. Several attempts have been mad in past years to establish a union among our banks. We believe tbe first of these attempts began as long ago as the year 1838. In may, 1937, all tho banks in the Unitoi States suspended specie payment. When the panic bad abated, some of the bank in New York and elsewhere took measures to sum mon a convention, and on tbe 11th of April, 1833, one hundred and fifty-eight bank dele gates, from eighteen States, assembled iu this aty for the purpose of united action in regard to the currency and tbe resumption of specie payments. We need not detail tbe proceedings of this convention further than to say that it voted by a largo majority to resume in January 1339, and that to its deliberations, in part, waa due the establishment of that celebrated system of banking which was created br the New York Legislature, in the act of 1338. This system, as is well known, was not only commended in bi-h terms by Sir Kobert Peel and by other English banK reformers during tbe Parliamentary de bates which preceded thepaesago of tbe I!ntish Bank Act of IS 11, but it was tbe basis on winch were modeled the chief features of our national banking system, as organized by Mr. Chase and Tho second convention was held in this city Sir. McCuIlooL in 1?') an! 1 e34 under tLe na tional currency law. in 1865, two yaari after the national banking system bad been set up. Like the first conven tion, it waa largely attended by bank oflcen from all puts of the country. It was, however, restricted to the officers of the National hanks and the plan of uniting these institutions to gether in a national association proved abor tive. The foundation and the principles on which this union was attempted, proved too narrow for the supemtructure which waa de signed to rest upon them. Last year a third convention was held at Sar atoga, under much more promising circumstan ces. A large and influential body of bank offi cers and bankers assembled, but as mature de liberation was necessary, all that was done waa to prepaie the preliminaries for a permanent organization, and final action was postponed till the present year. On Tuesday, October 3d, the Philadelphia convention assembled, and its Bossions continued for three days. Dunng that time a constitution was adopted, officers were chosen, and a permanent association was crea ted, having for its executive committee bankers prominently known in the chief cities of the United States. Among the features of this as sociation which commend it to the confidence of tho bankiDg community, two or three aro , or, worthy of special notice. It is hmited to no sin gle class of banks, but it includes trust compa nies and savings banks, as well as National, State and private banks. It has, moreover, a definite practical object in view. It aims to spread among the banks, and to make accessi ble to them throughout the country, such infor mation as will be of general utility in regard to legislation and other questions. For example, there is the subject of taxation. It is well known that our banns are suffering from exces sive fiscal burdens. No less than one hundred banks, in various parts of tne United States, havo Kuccumbed within a few months. The pro fits of legitimate banking are, for obvious rea sons, so much diminished that the banks are no longer ablo to pay as heavy taxes as formerly. During the war, and while the inflation of paper money values was at its height, a stimulus was given to all kinds of business, and the profits of : banking and of commerce generally were much i larger than they are now. War taxes wore im posed both on commerce aud on banking, and, i notwithstanding tha pressure cf these burdens, ' they were endured until tho close of tho war, when most of them were graduallv removed. Nearly all tho war taxes, of every description, have been repealed, and those imposed upon the banks alone survive. Under these circum stances the American Bankertt' Association deems it wise to make its first movement in op position to these taxes. It is circulating peti tions for signatures throughout the country, and it has Usned various documents in aid of the effort to be made at the coming session of Congress for removing the war taxes from the banks. Three reasons are given why these taxes should be repealed. First, they aro inequitable, excessive and unjust. The banks cannot afford to pay them. They are suffering under the pressure of these and other burdens, and they are looking forward to the still heavier burdens which will be imposed upon them by the ap proaching resumption of specie payments. In view of the present and prospective burdens which are incident to tha banking business, they declare that, except the relief asked for be granted, they will be compelled to go out of business. The next reason assigned is that the taxes in question belong to the system of war taxation, aad should have been repealed with the rest of that system years ago. As scarcely any other vestiges of specific war taxation remain now upon the statute book, the banks contend that it is a demand of simple jus tice that all the war taxes on the business of banking should be at once removed. Finally, they point to the fact that in no other country in modern times is the business of banking se lected for taxation as in the United States. Of course there are many other subjects, some of which we have already ventured to sug gest, as adapted to occupy tho attention of the Association hereafter. But they have doae well to take up in the first instance a question of so definite and popular a character as that of op pressive taxation. It has been well said that there is no bond so likely as a grievance to bind groat bodies of men together. When the banks become accustomed to act together for this com mon object tbev will the more easily form the habit of acting together for other purposes. La union they will not only find strength, but many other benefits conducive to sound bank ing. The Amencan Bankers' Association, under its vigorous management, is full of promise, and its permanent establishment on the basis of broad and liberal principles should promote tbo growth of our banks and the strength cf our financial system.
