Washington, Dcceiub Sin: In answer to Tour letter of November 1.1. in relation to drewes, 1 blu e to say that tho tax on clothing, or articled Of dress for the wear of men, women mid children, is six per centum n r'l'irmi, that is, six cents on a dollar of $ on c cry $100 of the taluc of the clothing or articles. A cai incut worth, or which sells lor 10, U to bo tuMil sivty cents. If it sells for $31, tho tax Is $d at; if l'orio.'tiix $2 10; ami so on, Tho tax. in all cases, is on the vaiilue of tho garment, and not iiiiiily on the cost of making. Whether a dressmaker furni'lies the material, or mnkes up material furnished by others, tho tax is the same on the entire vaiuoof the articles made. In the bitter case, however, the tailor has the right to collect the tax from the owner of,tuo matcriul or party lor whom he makesthe articles The law provides the following exemptions: 1. Any dresa-iniiker, whoo product docs not exceed the rate of six hundred dollars per annum, or titty dollius per mouth, and shall be inado by her own labor, or tho labor of her family, is cx oiupt from duty. "!. Any dress-maker exclusively engaged in uiiiiiufacturing clothing, or articles for tho wear of men, women or children to order, as custom work, ami not for sulo generally, who shall mako affidavit that the entire amount of her manufac tures so made does not" exceed the' sum of one hundred dollais per minimi, is exempt from duty. These arc the provisions of the lnw on this sub ject, nnd tho officers of Internal Kcveuuo aro bound to enforce them until altered rir repented Iff Congress. On no single subject have inoro let ters been written to this office than on that of tho nubility of tailors, milliners, dress-makers, etc., nnd the Commissioners is well nw.iro that there Hi n. v bo uppnrcnt inequality and cases of real hardship, l'uturc legi-lntion will doubtless apply a suitable remedy until such eases.

A British Kmissary named Thompson, a member of Parliament, perlia"- twonty 11 vu years ago, was Mint over to lecture this country on the sin of African slavery. His main political purpose was to destroy the production of cotton, which would thu' 1k made, in its growth nnd manufacture, an nn, Knglish monojilv. lie secured Grco leyls co-operation ntul has accomplished, for tfio jircent, his purpo-wis. That peace may not Ic restored and immigration diverted from tl:? South, another British orator and diviti" is lecturing in New York on the ab solute necessity for the equalized liftal and civil rights of whiten and blacks, The pot is kept boiling by'Kugland, and Greeley, jn cverliKting "hot water," Irt delighted with this preparatory training for his future state. Not Mtisfml vitli (i million tvhitc and black people slnughtervd at the bloody altar of fanaticism, another Jlritfsh prcacher Iras, of late, leen engaged in the business of san guinary philanthropy in Jamaica. His name is Lnderhill. l seems that Gordon, the lender of the negro outbreak, was Un derbill's dujic and agent. ltriti$h kindnurs to Atuerici is very like New JJngland benefia-nce to the South ; b(dh operating in Jamaica, the once prosperous island is converted into a veritable hell. "The negro" was nt the liottoin of the war which for four years spread the pall of death over the face of this onco iree and happy country; and "tho negro" is to-day the pre text made use of by party fanatics ngntn-t declaring the war at an end and restoring the Confederation ruptured by It. AVith this thought in view, have tho goodness to look at the status of "the negro" in the free city of New York, as docrilK-d by a friend (if "the negro" no less partial than Horace Greeley, of the TViltHne: "To-day a black man is not allowed a li cetife to drive his own hotvc and oart, and work for such ascluHweto employ him, right here in Xcw York. He has li.nl a hard ftruggle for the right to ride in our city in hote cars, bv- p-Mnr-Mii fare like other jKMiple, and has Iwrolv secured it, if it 1k securni, after years of insult and outrage. If a black builder were this day to take a contract to erect a house or store for somo (me who chose to employ him, and F-hould employ black carpenters and masons on the job, we lsrlicvc they would rlio MontxT off bnfcrt the week's rtid." " And those are the people who denv jio litical freetloin to tho whites of the South, le-d they should le wanting in tender mcrcv to " the negro."

J 2Vi'iHf- Itn Kenl Condition Opinion of (lie Gov critor nnd Colon Inl Council Kugllsli I'oimiientH. 3Ir. John jlright and oilier Aboljtionists, both in England and America, affect to dis believe that the insurrection in Jamaica was either a concerted movement or fonnid able in character, ouch is not the opinion of the Governor and Legislature of thai Ig' land. We append an extract frpm the ad dress of the Legislature, as well as com' ments from the London Taut. .TheVLcgisJatore1. indorsed lherigoroua measures taken by Governor Eyre to sup press the insurrection of the negroes, and says in the course of the address : We desire to express our 'entire concur rence in vour Excellency's statement that to the misapprchention and misrepresentations of jiseudo-philanthropistain JEngland and this country, to the imflaolmatory ltarangues and seditious meetings of political dema- gogues:,to fhe' .personal, scurrilous, ryindic ;a iv,a ,t:ixi ::"i r . .i;.,:-... ana unscrupulous press, and to the misdirect cd effort? and misguided counsel of certain miscalled ministers of religion, is to be at tributed the present disorganization of the colony, iTcsulting .in rebelljon', arson, and munlcr. e cordially aprec with yourtx- cellency that this great wickedness cannot he attributed to any just grievances undcrwlncl; it can be said that the peasantry sutler in this country. We entirely coincide with. your Jixcellcncy in the opinion that thev have advantages which the peasantry of no other country enjoy; and that it is to the causes to which your Excellency alludes that they'havc failed to xeap the benefit of their position. Deeply imprewed with 'the. "full conviction that nothing but-the existence of a strong Oovernmcnt can prevent this island from 'lapsing into the condition of a second Hayti, we shall carefully take into considera tion any measures recommended by your lixcellency. The London Times, of December 1, com' mcnting on Jamaica affairs, says : The speech of Governor Eyre to the Ja maica Legislature may convince our readers that we did not speak at random when wc de clared that in the opinion of the best in- lormed persons m the island, there had been a conspiracy amonj; the necroes, with no less an object than the murder and despoiling of the white people, and those of the colored who sided with them. That opinion may, of course, he entirely erroneous, it is iwssiulc hat Mr. Eyre, the Council, the House of Assembly, the General in command, the Custodes, Magistrates, and other people in authority in the colony, have all gone stark inati, ami nave uecn in mai siaic lor monins. It is equally pos.-ible that there has been no rebellion at all, and that the outrages com mitted in the eastern part of the. island arc a pure allusion. ThcsctWo propositions will have to be established by those who have constituted themselves the apologists of the negroes and the denouncers of the "eolo- nial Government. The second, sieht which cah give 'them a better" knowledge ot the events in Jamaica than the peo ple who arc on the siwt wc do not affect to share; our own course has simply been to take the best lulormation winch was to be obtained, to compare it with what was known of the state and past history of the island, and to judge accordingly. The result is that therq is not a single "statement wc made which has not been confirmed on the highest authority. The dangerous designs of the negroes, the treasonable spirit that prevail ed, the pernicious influence of certain poli ticians and preachers, and he necessity for a strong Government for FOinc considerable time, if life and property were to be saved and civilization upheld, have now bccn.pos itively announced by the Queen's lepresen tativc amid the assent and applause of the Legislature. So strong is the conviction that the only hope for the island is to place full auihority in a few hands and to prevent an ignorant and barbarous race from being excited by the machinations of demagogues, that it seems almost likely the ancient insti tutions of the island will be abolished, and the chief Uritish settlement in the West In dies revert to the condition of a crown col our. Governor Eyre opened the session of the Legislature on the 7th iust. At that time order had been restored in the disturbed dis tricts, but it seems that Kingston was still crowded with the white inhabitants, that the estates were deserted, and apprehension con tinue to prevail, llusincss in the island had just begun to revive after the panic of the preceding month, and it was thought that the proofs the Government had given of its strength would be sufficient to check any re bellious intentions in other parts of the is land. Wc.arc speaking, wc beg to observe, strictly of tho opinions of tho .Jamaica peo ple themselves, who may tiossibly be shown 7 n f. 1 ,1 r. 1 ,? io stnicr irom an naiiuciuauon in oeiicviug that there are any such intentions at all ; and f-o of the Governor's speech. His Ex cellency having been personally on the scene of the disturbances, having full infor mation of all that had passed, and was pass ing in the island, reiterates, in the t-trongest manner, the, opinions expressed in his late .snatch, and in the presence of the Com mander-in-Chief, the Commodore, and the principal officers engaged against the ne groes, declares me colony to no in i-crious danger. He speaks of the " wicked and un provoked rehellionr As to the cllcct of it, he declares that "a large amount of property Ima been destroyed, an im mense expense has been entailed on the country, and one of the richest and most productive districts of the colony has been left without a resident proprietor or manager to reap tlic abundant crops now ready for the harvest. As to the nature of it, he says further on, "To this prompt and ectsive action 1 hrmly believe wc owe it, under God's Providence, that wc arc able to meet hero this day. One moment's hesita tion, one single reverse, might have lit the torch which would have blazed in rebellion from one inland to the other.' There is scarcely a district or a parish in the island wncre disloyalty, sedition, and murderous intentions are not widclv disseminated. Nor docs the Governor hesitate to speak of "this mot dialiolfcal conspiracy to murder the while and colored inhabitants -of this colo ny." The speech from which wuhave made these extracts was delivered on a solemn oc casion a tortnigiit alter tlic rising Had been virtuallv suppressed ; it was addressed to the Legislature, in the presence of the chief nulitnrv nnd naval-olhcers On 1n6 Matirtn, and was immediately published. Arc we to lielicve that a man in his seizes would in this formal manner utter a tissue of absurdi ties, or make statements which any one of the ninny present could contradict? More over, we find that the ICgislature was en tirely in accord with the Governor; his ad dress was praised in the highet terms bv sevcral menilers, and .Mr. csttnoreland, a inemlicr of the Executive Committee, at once introduced a bill to carry out the prin cipal of its recommendations. We rencat that we hone the dav will soon return when the .negro population maybe intrusted with free institutions, and may meet and peak nnd voto without danger to nnyltody. Hut for their sake, as well as that of the whites, it is the duty of the Home Government to support to the utmost the authorities in the island. We regret as much as nnv one can do the recent severi ties, the accounts of which, however, have evidently bctiti preposterously exaggerate!. Hut for some time to come there must lie a firm Government. There is, wc fullv be lieve, a good deal more to lc learned about . ' " . T . ... tlic purposes oi uic Jamaica negroes, r rom nil parts of the island it is Tcported that their lancuat-e. behavior and bearing indi cate the deepest animosity to the white?, and their Itelicf that a day of triumph is at hand. The confessions of some of the prisoners Iwar witness to a definite conspiracy. Doubt less, among the great majority of them the purpose is of tho vaguest and wildest kind, but it is not the less dangerous. The late convulsions in Anieriea, the vibration of which has extended to Ireland, have d1m lecu felt In the West India Islands, where the negro has been most independent and most ill-advrsed. Maroon wars; lavoinur rcctioti't, and the St. Domingo revolution makeup tho historical learning of the Ja maica peasant, and antngonism to the white man is his only political conception. On silch n nature the tales of ronquering negro armies, dividing Louisiana estates, and dis persing white men's meetings, Join with the influence of the ngitators of the island in producing Ihc worst effects. .For the benefit of nil the Government should be adminis tered for a time 'with a strong hand.
