T1X TUfSX Pursuant I a call made by a number of the leading eitiaeus of the county, a very large meeting was held at the Court House in the town of Greenville on the 16th instant, to consider the interests of the tax payers, and if possible lift the load of taxation that other wise must prove ruinous to the property holders of the entire community. . On motion, W.'E. Hunt was made temporary chairman, end on whose motion Charles T. Worth ington was called upon to preside over the meeting. On motion, the following Vice Presidents were chosen front the several magisterial districts: M. F. Johnson, W. W. Stone, Augus tine Chew, James Stone, W. P. Montgomery and S. Archer. On further motion, D. L. Stone was made Secretary or the meeting. A desire beiug expressed to bear the views of members of the meet ing as to what means could be de vised to relieve them of the taxes so soon to be collected, Messrs, Taxton, Frank Valliant, Trigg, Percy, S. Archer and Bolton were called for, each of whom, after stating the wrongs inflicted upon the property owuers, and the caus es of such a general inability to meet auy taxes at this time, urged npon the citisens of the eouuty to stand ns a body, and if necessary and prudent to resist the collec tion of any taxes whatever. On motion, the Chair appointed Messrs. W. A. Percy, M. F. John son, S. Archer. L. B. Valliant, J: C. Estill, - Cowan and A.J, Paxton a committee to draft reso lutions ; aud Messrs. B. T.

Bolton were in like manner appointed to wait upon the Board ot Levee Commissioners unit UMG their efforts to secures lotltictiou of the tax of one cent per pound on cotton and ten cents per aerq oil laud, and If possible to dUpi-iiso"' entirely with these taxes. ' r, 6 n fifi titer mdlioh a committee 6f tlu'co,' couipol 'of Messrs. W. It. Trljrg.VT. G. Yergcr,and C. AV. Lewis, was appointed by t'lu t'lnilr to call upon the Board of Supervisors (then in session) and nnk of them a reduction of the county tnges to tho extent of (heir lawful authority. On motion the mectiug adjourn od till tho following day (171 b), to give tic illfleront coinniitteos am pic time to make their reports. Tuksoav, Nov. 17, The meeting reassembled at the limo appointed and reports from coniniittccf were prescuted. The Chairmau of the Committee who waited upon the Levee Board reported their inability to secure but a slight reduction in the taxes mentioned as levied by them. The committee to wait upon the Board of Supervisors to ask a re ductiou of county taxes met with a like response that they were unwilling to assume the responsi bility of reducing said taxes. ' The Chairman of tho Committee on Resolutions proceeded to road Ui6 resolutions, as follows : ' Whereas, for the past five years, iu spite of our earnest pro tests and persistent efforts, the rate of taxation imposed npon us, and which we have been forcod to pay, his steadily grown greater year by year, whilst the values of property have as steadily decreas ed and in about the same ratio ; and whereas, all effort to reduce or check the same has been una vailing, and the protests of an in dignant and cries of a despairing people, have been alike unheeded by our corrupt and rapacious ru lers ; and whereas, we do earnest ly believe that the power of taxa tion has been subverted from its true purpose that of maintaining a pure and well-ordored govern ment, administered in the inter ests of tho people into a source of wealth for corrupt officials and venal politicians; and whereas, taxation for all 'of its legitimate purposes has proven an utter fail ure, and is a success only as a moans of bankrupting the State, and impoverishing the people; and whereas, the taxes for the pre sent year amouut in the aggregate to a sum so enormous as to render their payment a simple impossibil ity, and to induce us rather to see our property forfeited than 16 at tempt their paymeuti therefore, Be it resolved, That we, the tax payers of Washington eonnty, In mass meeting assembled, do here by bind and pledge ourselves, one to the other, to refuse and resist, by all legal meaus, (be payment of auy and all taxes levied for the current fiscal year upon real estate of which wo are the owners, or GUEEW'ILLE, WAHIIirVCwTOTV CO., which we have under onr eoutrol. Resolved, further, that we nrge and invite the co-operation with ns of every tax payer, white and colored, iu Washington county, in this effort to save ourselves from impending ruin. Resolved, further, That we rec ognize the fact that a certain am j oont of taxation is necessary to the maintenance of all govern nientti, and would cheerfully pay of the present taxes what would he necessary for that purpose, were it possible to do so, but we have found it impossible to obtain any. redaction in the levy, and through the tax gatherers macbi. nery must pay all or none, . Resolved, further, That we take this step in no spirit of re sentment, with no intent to produce discord ' and civil com motion and with uo purpose of ob structing the State and County Governments In the due aud llglti niste exercise of their powers, but as the result of mature and earnest thought, with a full knowledge of the ouo sequences and a steady de termination to abide them, and as the shortest road out of utter ruin, and the ouly means left us with which to secure safety for the present and relief for the future. Resolved further, That In union and organisation we must find our strength and for that purpose we Invite the co-operation of the tax payers t each county in the State and urge the WKanlsaJ.'an of the Tax-Payers Leagues toaot iu oont cert for the preservation' of our com mon fights and interests. Resolved further, That.lhe Chair man of thia meeting appoint active and efficient men in, each neighbor hood of the county for the purpose of securing the signature of every tax-payer upon real estate to these resolutions, and that for that pur pose the Beoretary of this meeting be required to furnish the requisite number of copies.

Resolved further, That this meet ing now adjourn and that we pro ceed forthwith to the organisation of s Tax-Payers' league for the county of Washington, Resolved. That a copy of these resolutions tie furnished to the Greenville Times aud the V'cks burg Herald. W.A.PERCY. MATT F.JOHNSON. HTEVENSON ARCHER, A. J.PAXTOX. I., B. VALLIANT," J.C.ESTILL. The , same were adopted with but one dissentiug voice. On motion a committee compo sed of Messrs.

S" ii. , The New York Tribune consid ers tho late elections the verdict of the country against Grant, and says i " There were only two great questions before the people at this election. One was whether the Administration deserves the public confidence, aud the other was whether it ought to bo per petuated, They havo both boon answered iu the negative so loudly that even the President must hour the verdict." The sandbar across the river is made melodious now with the songs of wild geese, but they arc the hardost animals In the world to gef a shot at. Although thoy are there by multitudes cyory wiutcr, and onr sports aro eager in the bunt for lliem, very fr " killed, MISS., 8ATUHDAY, ISTOV, 1, 1H71. A Terr Xotable rrrforaUH(f It U instanced as perhaps the most striking of the 'many proofs of the enormous brain power of the great Napoleon, that he could dictate npon different subjects to several secretaries at the same time, or as fast as 'each could write, and continue such dictation for an indefinite time. The mat ter is stated as a fact in several of the lives of Napoleon, and I have never seen it questioned in priut ; indeed, I believe that something very similar Is narrated of one or two other celubrated characters. .During one of his visits to his vast possessions in the northern comities of New York, several persons were with Gouvcrueur Morris in his office one day, when the conversation happened to turn npon tho remarkable power of Napoleon to which I have alluded. Some one remarked that the abili ty to write on two different sub jects at the samo time with a pen in each baud." That is true," wns tho ro ponso, "but I never heard of any one who could do that." " I think I can," remarked Mor. ris. "Lot mo try." Turning to his desk he arranged two blank pieces of pupor boioro him aud took a pen in each hand. " I was about to fill out a descrip tion in a deed," be said, " and I must, also write a letter to the grantee to accompany the deed, Now lot us see If I can do it all at once." Aud to the amazement and ad miration of all present, each of whom we may be sure scrutinised tho performance with critical watchfulness, he did it as cleverly and rapidly as though he had been writing cither separately ; and the task was performed with excel lent penmanship, without blots or erasures, and without a mistake or confusion in expression. From tin Sew York Triliniie. Immigration Bureau. The thousands of surplus olll ciuls who wear purple and flue linen aud fare sumptuously every day at tho expenso of tho people, is ono of the most fruitful sources of discontent on the part of the property owners. No wonder that taxes aro enormous when such an army of utterly useless officials are quartered upon tho people. Ono of these eating sores is tho Bureau of Education, with its county superintendents, drawing not less than one hundred thous and dollars for services that can bo performed for nothing by the citizens of the different counties Another fester is the Bureau of Immigration established for no reason on earth but to pcusion a party favorite. Immigrants need no " hired man" to guide thorn to the country. They po where the laws are Just, tho land is good, and the burdens of government light, The New York Tribune draws this picture of the Bureau of Im migration and Agriculture: The Commissioner is ono Griggs, a person of dusky color, who doesn't at all trouble himself about immigration and doesn't know anything about agriculture. The only official function in the exor cise of which ho is at all respited cut is that of drawing bis salary, which he docs monthly with great spirit aud persistence. Compas sionating tho fatiguing nature of this service, the last Legislature voted him several "assistants," who receive each Hie neat honorO' rum of $125. per month, Ono of them, known lo his familiars as Charley Bush, was a hackmati, who has dcscrlod tho box for the bar, and employs his time in ab sorbin f ardent spirits and playing at all-fours. Once in thirty days he appends his name to a receipt for his salary ; and that is all tho writing tho ex-Jchu does iu the Department of Agriculture. An. othor "assistant" is one Shadd. who is nlso Speaker of the House Another is Little, who is a State Senator. Another is Spelman, who ii also a member of the Leg islature Such is tlio Department of Agile ii 1 1 ii re In a State which sorely needs the very wisest aud most conscientious care of this in terest. The whole thing is a fraud at once luuhablu aud shameless. What the great Grlgg gets wo are not Informed, but there arc flvo "assistants" drawiug annually from tlio Treasury 12,MK) of the most easily earned dollars in the world ; if, indeed, so much ss one of tlicin can bo said truly to be earned at all.

BoLfYAHg Miss. Nov. 12, '71. I thought it H'llit interest you and your subscribers id Uiov bow Captain A. L. Pierce, lcvce tU- tractor, who by his low bids saved this levee district ten or twelve j thousand dollars, was getting on. He landed at Neblctt's 31st of October, with a hundred convicts, and broke ground on 2d Novem ber, The heaviest station, 17 feet, he has completed one section aud begun another. Ho has sub-let a portion at ow figures, and seems full equal lathe heavy responsi bilities resting upon him. I hear he landed a few days since with a force of white labor at Bolivar, and is going alieid with the work expeditiously. How he has disap pointed tho higVprlco men who thought lo make a fortune on their contracts iu ouc season. A now era has dawned upon us, thanks to Captain Pcarce, and taught the lovee board that earth can bo moved as cheap now as be fore the war. The vast number of competitors has brought things to a level. Wo are not bound lmi.d and foot and sold to largo capital ists, as wo were soon after tho War, when tlicy took largo con tracts at 60. cents per cubic yard, and built levecs at a cost of about ?0 cents per cubic yard, thus ma king 15Q per cent, ou their con tracts. ' I thank you for tho expose of tho taxes paid by tho country since 1867-8. We can scarce rcallao that wo havo become so powerless as free citizens, holding tho inesti mable (?) boon of clectivo fran chise, as to permit our public ser vants, (ho !.cgisltu,re aud Boards of Supervisors., to oppress us in so outrageous and scandalous a manner, Our officers were well paid be fore the war, and wliat wero the taxes J four to four ami a half mills on tho dollar. - A hundred per cent, is a large advance ou the expenses of an administration; but wliat would we have said if in 1860 some seer or prophet had told us in a few years wo would bo paying tkn jiunuhkd or (1000) per cent, inoro taxes than we then paid? Tell it not in Oath! lest tho pcqple rebel and fall upon our extortioners and thrust them from the land. It is well for tho peace of the country that tho largo majority of voters pay no taxos, or nominal ones, or the exposition in your paper of 17th October of the heavy burden of taxes borne by us would produce a revolution in 30 days. A revolution in public sentiment is going on, if not in arms. Wit Hess tho Democratic victories, and let Mississippi officeholders tnito warning.

It is fitting that at statodjporiods we should cease from our accus tomcd pursuits, and from tho tur moll of our dally lives, and unite in thankfulness for the blessings of tho past, and lit the cultiratiou of friendly feelings toward each other.
