It is now propoied to increai this enormous debt to such an extent that tb annual Interest on th addition will b nearly equal to on fourth of th average annnal expenditures of th wholo QoTernment during th deoad prior to th commencement of tb rebellion. Th Iirgeit amount of revenue ever drawn from tb British popt in any one year irreipec live if loans has nrr exceeded three hundred and seventy million dollars, while tb amount of reve nue which tb United States has drawn daring th first tbre quarters of lb current ncalyesr by tb rartous forms of direct and lndlreot taxation-, has been four hundred and tea million, or at th rat of upward! of fir hundred and forty million per annuo. This immense sum, in opposition to tb settUd policy of all other nations, and in deflano of their xprInoo, bas been taken mainly from tb Indurtry of th country, Tb present larg receipts of revenue cannot, however, bo accepted ai sny sure indication of th future, and so long as they ar drawn mainly from taxes on Industry they ar no satisfactory indications of th prosper ity of tb country. For th next fiscal year, moreover, a larg falling off In th receipts, arising from diminished importations, changes in ralnes and quantities of Industrial products, and from other causes, may b expected. This deficit can not now be easily estimated, but that It will be larg cannot b doubted, especially If tb country, u now seems probable, ts to b T lilted by pestt lene It would seem as if tb mere statement of these facts ought to suffice as an argument against any Immediate lncreas of our enormous burden of debt and taxation. If, however, we further consider the manner and distribution of the taxation by which the nation Is at present raising its revenues, th argument be comes even more oognt and unanswerable. As is well known, tb exemption from taxation at present In tb United States of any form of cap ital, or any process or result of Industry, Is tb ex ceptlon, rather than the ml. This system neces sarily Involves a moat extcnilr duplication of taxes, and Ibis In turn entails and maintains an undue enhancement of prices; a decrease both of production and consumption, and consequently of wealth a restriction or exportation and or foreign commeroei and a larg Increase in the machinery and expense of the revenue collection. It needs no gift of prophecy or traloed financial Intellect to de termfn th result of a persistency In such a policy; for nations, like individuals, have limits to their resources; and nations, Ilk individuals, may bare their patriotism even taxed beyond endurance. A reduction and equalisation of national taxa tion bas therefore become not merely expedient, but Imperative. Circumstances will not, however, admit of a reduction sufficient to give all the relief demanded by the nation being made at once Hitherto, as has been already stated, a very large portion of the revenue has been derlied from the taxes on Industry, or th capital nhioh directly supports Industry) and comparatively small part from spirits, tobacco, liquors, legacies and suacea slons, and other sources, which all experience has demonstrated may be taxed most heavily without In any way arresting th progress of national de velopment. Indeed, It may be asserted that laws sufficient to Insure tb collection of any larg rr enue from theie latter sources have not yet been enacted the existing laws being In many respects Inoperative upon th statute book. Until, there fore, new laws can be enacted, and their efficiency proved by experience, many of th worst features of the present revenue system must be retained and endured In order to at present rati by taxation a sum sufficient to pay an annual Interest of six per cent. on an addition of two hundred and fifty millions to the principal of the public debt, vis , fifteen mil lions, tb present rate of taxation must b main tained on the following articles, or their equivalents the receipts for the fiscal year 1803 being as sumed as the basis of the estimate llats, caps, bonnets, coats, Tests, pants, over coats, shirts, collars, stookings, gloves, mltUnr, boots, shoes, moccasins, salt, cheap soap, paints of all kinds, paper of all descriptions, books, msga- slnes, pamphlets, maps, engravings, and all printed matter, plows, harrows, cultivator, rakes, winnow ing mills, bay and straw cutters, trunks, harnesses, Urn, cements, building stones, brieks, stover, pot tery war, and window glass the revenue from the direct tax on all these articles, for the fiscal year ending June SO, 1805, not baring been In excess of fifteen millions of dollars. If, however, it is urged tbat the Government can afford to relieve all th abore-e numerated articles and many others from taxation, and still pay tba lntereat on th proposed addition to th debt, I reply, that tb oonditton of tb revenue will not at present allw of at xmpti 4f all th neowaltWi of Jif and all tb common ferms of Industry from taxation; and that no prinelpl of political economy ta bettor Mtabllsbed than that a tax upon on of the necessities, or indispensable forms of Industry. ts In fact a tax upon alt.

Those who judged, as most persons outsido the organi sation necessarily uiu, oy me parauu ui num bers, by tha apparent accumulation of money in considerable sums, by the openness mlh which preparations were made and the purpose avowed, by tho running to and fro of ugeuts, by the loud v aunts of irresistible resources, by intimations or connivance on the part of the Wellington authorities, and by tue confessions roado that failure would entail personal disgrace on the leaders and lexvo a whole race open to impeachment and imbecility and cowordkc, that a serious de monstration vas concerted, and would be so executed as to cvinte tho highest quaUtiesof . manhood, have had occasion to revise their judgments, nnd to conclude that Fenianism did not embody anv of the elements by which great actions arc produced. It is fair to infer, from tho facts as they no stand rovealcd, that tho Executive De ' partraent at ' Washington understood tho whole caBC perfectly from the beginning, and that its attitude was superinduced by indif I fuencc rather than by acquiescence. ' Hut a sense of the ridiculous mixes with the predominant feeling of contempt. When I Gen.

All this statily painting has tanlshcd from the canvas. Instead of a million of men eager for battle, a few straggling hundreds gather on tho border, with siouly prepara tions, without spirit, without courageous leaders, without a directing intelligence, fho grand drama that was promised sinks Into a petty comedy, and this so wretchedly acted that frequent hisses mingle with derisive peals of laughter. l'Utthurg Gazette.
