RATIONAL BAKKS AND TAXATION. ;v The Democracy, true to their propen sity for misrepresentatton, are "busy with thecry.bf Banker! Banker! against Mr. Moore, tbmking thereby to arouse some of &e old, dead : issues that went down to oblivion with their defunct Pendletonian greenback; dodge of . last Fall, at the New York Convention,awlule aeovTheV say the i National Banks es cape taxation the stockholders do not . bear their share of the public burdens, and fliat Mr. Mo'oxe;las a banker, enjoys immunities from taxation not enjoyed by - hia fellow citizens, generally. Now ' we are happy tasay to, our readers that all ,thia is not only false, but further, that stockholders in the National , Banks pay a much larger per cent. ; of tax than al- - most any class of capitalists in the coun try. ' .': ", -. ;, ., To illustrate, we will take the National Bank ot Athens, of. which Mr. Moorc is President. In the first place, the capital stock of the Bank is 850,000, sectired by the deposit jof $50,000 in Government Bonds with the Treasurer of the United States. Upon this, the Bank' pays the ame rate of State taxes as any individ ual pays upon money capital. This tax amounts to nearly $1,400. So there is no exemption from tax on its capital, though that be represented by Govern ment Bonds. This is in accordance with the decisions of our own State Su preme Court,, and the Supremo Court of the United States. . The ,Bank next pays to the General Government, by direct taxation : : -v e . ;1. 'A license tax of 8100,- V. -; 2. One-half per cent, on its deposits. . 3.- One-half per cent, , on so , much of its capital as is not invested in Govern ment securities. ; ' .-" " ,:r ' ' 4.' One per cent on its circulations i ' 6. r Five per cent on its earnings. I Certainly, then,; the National , Bank stockolders do not escape taxation,either from the State or General Government, but on' the contrary they are very heavily taxed far ' more heavily than any other : class of persons in this community. The tax paid, by this Bank, to the General Government amounts to nearly 82,000 a year, besides, as before, stated, nearly 81,400 paid as a. State, tax under State laws.,. Where is the'man in Athens Coun ty that pays as' proportionately large a tax as. the stockholders of the National Bank at Athens "We have several far mers in the county worth 825,000, a sum equal to one-half the . capital . of this Bank-' "Which of them pays a tax of 81, 650, half the tax paid .by the Bank ? And, in view of the fact that this Bank pays a tax- of. nearly 82,000 yearly, to the General Government, we would ask, how .many, even of this class of farmers, pay any. tax at ' all to the Gerieral Gov ernment ? -We defy any .one to contra dict the facts and figures we give above. 'The demagogue who, in their face, will repeat his lies deserves to be set down " where ; he belong among those who wilfully and knowingly falsify for parti Ban1 purposes. We have not space for further notice of this subject this week. We wfll revert to it again. . The following circular was forwarded to County Auditors the fall of 1867; by the Auditor, of State. . It explodes- the above' completely. ' ' ' V l- We extract from a" circular of; Auditor of State Godhak as follows : r v 1 T I'Aumtor 07 StAte's Office,) ; : ' v ' "Colcmbcb, O., Dec, 30, 1867. f - - "Gkhtlemen :' The Supreme Court of this State, in accordance with decisions of the Supreme Court of the United States, haver decided; that the taxes as sessed in 1864, ; 1865 and 1866 on shares . in National Banks," were illegal, the Gen eral Assembly passed ia Joint Resolution (see 64th O. L., p. 331, ) authorizing rer payment to the shareholders of the seve rrl amounts illegally collected of them, ' by the remission of future taxes assessed on the duplicates against them." " -"If further efforts are made by this Class Of our eitizens to evade taxation in ' the future, we shall have the privilege of dispensing with the system of National Banks, if we think best" t The Auditor of State "knew when he penned that last paragraph that he was a villain, because the Radicals iu power have no intention of lightening the bur dens of the people by abolishing the Na tional Bank swindle. With them and their influence they expect to control and beggar the tax-payers and hold power. SXonroe County Taxation and " Gen. Wildes. ,' At Brownsville Gen. Wildes made the statement, based upon figures furnished by Mr. Wakbem IIolmster, of Woods field, that the taxation in Monroe Coun ty for 1868 was 8103,000. He appealed to Commissioner Mcetht to substantiate his base falsehood. iMr.MuRrnYdid no, know the facts, therefore did not assent The facts are,' si taken from the Audi tor's books, that the total county taxes for the year 1868, including debt, expen pen, infirmary, bridge and road, amounts to only 829,553. - r t. The total tax for all purposes in 1867 was 83J,662, which shows a decrease in one year of 86,109. ; '' ' ' 1 ' The above proves Gen. Wildes and his Aids, tools of Moore, to be wilful liars,' for party purposes. ' ' . ' ; i '.

Marietta Register, (Radical.) : - ' The Visible Admixture Bill, passed by the last Legislature, was to "preserve the purity, of the elections" by prevent ing Negroes from voting. The Radical press of this District shouted lustily for their Negro Ravishers. Read: "By the passage of this bill the Dem ocratic Legislature of Ohio have placed the cap stone upon the column of infamy which they have been erecting since their Convention in January last" The above is from the Athens Mes senger, an intensely Radical sheet, whose editor, in ' his salutatory a short time since, said: '"What in deed is Republicanism ? It is a term that wants no positive signifi cation. It is that form of government which is expressly lodged in the people. It is the legitimate faith of the friends of equal law and equal rights ( political) for all men." ; . From the Meigs County Telegraph comes another wail; which means, if it means anything, that the editor is sorry he was not born a Negro, or at least one the hue of a tanned hojj skin : "The Visible Admixture Bill," as it has been called, has passed both branches of the Ohio Legislature, and for pure, devilish malignancy it exceeds anything that even before came under our ' notice, dignified with the name of a statute." , The Marietta Hegister mourns the loss of suffrage to its "Man of 1867."' as the: whangdoodle mourns over the loss of its first born : .

The Arkadclphhi ( Dallas county ) Standard of the 20th ultimo publishes a report that a bloody tragedy occurred last week iu Louisville, Lafayette county, in the extreme southwestern portion of the State, which resulted in the death of seven negroes and five whites. A negro had committed a horrid out rage upon a girl thirteen years old, and a number of the citizens executed sum mary punishment upon him b' hanging him. A brother of the negro went to town alter the execution, and behaved in a very insulting and riotous manner, using threats against those who had hanged his brother. The people, after bearing his insults for some time, hang ed him also, whereupon the negroes of the town and neighborhood collected together to the number of forty or fifty, and made a general attack upon the town, and was met by the citizens with the above result NEGRO OUTRAGE UPON A WHITE WOMAN ATTEMPTED.

Her screams brought the neighbors to the spot who succeed ed in arresting the entire party and bringing them to the city. Simpson is not expected to live. ,: FIENDISH OUTRAGE. Bridgeport, Conn., September 14. The most intense excitement was created here "j-esterday by the discovery of a hendish outrage on a highly respectable young lady of this city, by a negro. lhe negro was arrested shoilly after the commission of the outrage, and it was with the greatest difficulty that the au thorities could protect Ahe scoundrel from the fury of the excited people. He was ' finally committed to await his trial. ' ' ' ' KEGRO RIOTS. The Charleston Courier reports an at tempt On the part of the negroes at Wat erboro, S. C, to lynch the foreman of a plantation for striking a negro boy. Military assistance was called for, and the Courier proceeds to say: Colonel Welch, the commandant of the post, thereupon repaired to the 6ccne of the disturbance, accompanied by a detachment of colored soldiers. Arriving there, the negro rioters retreat ed to the adjacent woods. One of the ring leaders, however, remained upon the ground, and, coming up to the Colo nel and using violent and abusive lan guage, was by him arrested. At this time the negroes, who were assembled in the surrounding wood, fired several vol leys into the troops, wlip then retreated a few paces. The Colonel then scut out a detachment of five men to attempt to disperse the mob : but these were met on the road b' a negro preacher named . Sol omon Spears, in command of a detach ment of about fifteen armed negroes, who ordered them to fire on the troops. The rest of the troops, some twenty m num ber, now came up, and, after the ex change of several volleys, succeeded in dispersing the mob, and capturing Spears and twenty-three .of the rioters, whom they carried to Watcrboro. We learn that warrants from the civil authorities have licen issued for the arrest of the others who were implicated in the dis turbancc.
