Again I hear the creaking step !
lit rapping at the door !
Too well I know the boding sound
That ushers in a bore.
I do not tremble when I meet
The stoutest of my foes,
Rat Heaven defend me from the friend
Who comes liot ocver goes.
He drops into my easy chair.
And asks about the news;
Aiid peers into my manuscripts.
And piics his candid views;
lie tells me where he likes the fane.
And where he's forced to grieve;
He takes the strangest libertief
But never takes his leave.
He reals my daily papers through
Befote I've seen a word;
He scans the lyric (that I urote),
And thinks it ,uiic absurd;
He calmly smokes my last agar.
And coolly asks fi r more;
He opens every thing be sees
Except the entry door.
He talks shoot his fragile health.
And tells rue of the pains
He Buffers from a score of ills.
Of which be ne'er coiuplaias ;
And how he struggled oaee with death
To keep the fiend at bay :
On themes like those away he goes
But never goes away !
He tells me of the carping works
Some shallow critic wrote.
And every precious paragraph
Familiarly can quote.
He thicks the writer did me wrong.
He'd like to run him through !
He says a thousand pleasant things
But never says "Adieu."
Whene'er he comes that dreadful msa-
LHsguise it as I may.
I know, that like an Autumn rain.
He'll last tbroti-liuul the day.
In vain I speak of urgent tasks,
In tain I scowl and pet ;
A frown is no extinguisher
It does not put him out :
I mean to take the knocker iff
Put crape upon the door ;
Or 1 int to John that I am gone
To stay a month or more.
I do not tremble when I meet
The stoutest of my mas ;
But Heaven defend me front the friend

AUiut Un years aftir the close of the
wai of American indt ptudence. Jonas Green
removed from Connecticut to a fertile farm
in the State of Sew York, near the bound
ary line of Vermont. It was not alone the
productiveness of the soil that had induced
turn to buy this farm ; the whole neighbor
hood was rife with stories to tlic cffitct that
large sums of Money were buried m some
part of the land. When the war broke out,
many of the settler in that region were
Tories, who were forced to fly from the
country. A few of them were reputed to
be wealthy, a great portijn of whose riches,
in the shape of gold and silver coin, rntaor
aid, bad been secured in pola and buried
till bucli time as thev could with safety re
turn and repossess themselves of their tasti
ly hidden treasures.
While Jonas (i recti, with true Yankee
thrift, cultivated his productive acres, lie
searched carefully and constantly in every
part of the farm for the buried treasured.
Sometimes, to escape the dVrif-ion of hi
neighbors, he wonld carry on tbo work at
night, with the help of a faithful negro
servant, perhaps not quite uninfluenced by
old Peter's assurance that it was only by
night that the buried money could be
Jonas Urcen himself, reared in the Puri
tan faith, was little troubled by supersti
tious fears, though subject to mcch incon
venience by reason of those which beset the
mind of Piter. Time and again, while both
were industriously digging, would Peter's
lively fancy sec the gi -tit form of Satan with
flaming eyes and huge home coram;; lrom an
adjoining wood. It might If a cow, or a
shadow cast by the moon ; whatever it was,
away would go the spade from Peter's
hands, and crying out
"Dcre he come de dcbbil, dc debbil : I
tul you so, masea ;" he would run as fast
as eyer be could, uttering fearful yells, till
safe in doors.
Often Jonas Green uoikcd alone, grub
bing away with spade ar.d hoc through tiall
the nigbt. It is no stretch ol Fancy to
imagine him at such times as bearing a
literal likeness to "the man with the muck
rake," in '-Pilgrim's Progress," and as bis
infatuation grew upon him, the figurative
resemblance was compete. In course of
time, hi" affairs would have fallen into fad
disorder if he had not l en blessed with a
prudent wife and a goul daughter, who
never put laith in the story of tlie pot ol
money. They looked wi ll "to the ways of
the house ,and .as farasciuli be dooe,attend
ed to the cattle crops, and other out-door
matters : trying, not without mie flight
eucecHi. to divert the old man's thoughts
and efforts mto a more h ful channel.

Jonas was by nature taciturn, and the
trait did not become weaker with the lapse
of years. He bad hut little to say in reply
to his wile's sensible words. Possibly lie
might have rained in nioroscncss not so
much, if he had been the only seeker for the

by finding on his land traces ol the work of
others who had managed to secure an op

dig for the coveted prize. The injury to his
property troubled hiai 'far less, howcvcr.tlian

ITS IMS&2CK BY THE HOCEK.
The passage of tne Constitutional Amend
ment recommended by the Committee of
fifteen, iu the Homc, by the solid rote of the
Itepoblican phalanx in that body, is a cheer
ing event. It was of coutee impoMke that
there should not be many minds on points
which have to many-aided a bearing; and
the ircdictions have been tuwiy that no
scheme presented could pass cither bouse.
" Congress has no policy" lias been the cry
of the Democrats and tbo John-on men a
declaration which we shall near lew of in
future probably. The only serious division
of opinion on the amendment was with ref
erence to the third section, which disfran
chises the rebels till 1970. Apparently
enough republicans were ready to vote
against that section to have voted it down
with the aid if the Democrats, who. of
course, opposed it. Seeing which the Dem
ocrats suddenly changed their tactics. I're
f erring .as one of the democratic correspond
ents states, "that tin measure should go be
fore tlx- country in a objectionable a shape
as 4sitle," the democrats caattbeir votes on
ordering the prevuns question in such a
manner as to prevent the taking of the ques
tion on altering that section, thus forcing
up n the Republicans the alternative of
adopting or rejecting the whole report.
Thus brought to a square contest on the
amendment as a whole, the Republicans did
as they did on the District of Columbia suf
frage bill accepted the issue, and, in solid
ranks, (with the exception of two Harder
State men) went for the proposition.
The fate of the amendment in the Senate
is in some doubt ; but the unanimity with
which it passed the House, we trust and be
lieve will carry it through the other body.

Cholera is generally a prevcntible disease,
and in the early stages can bs arrested, if the
habits be good. Study, therefore, temper
ance in eating and drinking. Do not believe
that alcoholic stimulants are useful in guard
ing you against an attack. Let the food be
nutritious, and keep the digestive organs in
a healthful condition. Use no stale or un
cooked vegetables. Let your meat be fresh
and your vegetables be well cooked, and all
fruits be fresh and ripe.
Cleanliness of the body is of the Erst con
sideration. Keep the skin in a healthy state
by bathing the whole body, with a free use
of soap. Cold bathing is beet used in the
morning ncTcr before just going to bed.
Dry frictions or the warm bath may be more
safely used just before going to bed.
Cleanliness in your house is of ccjual im
portance. Let your apartments be efry nev
er damp. Suffer no decayed vegetables or
stagnant water to remain in your cellar or
yards. Any disagreeable smell from rrrivies,
cess-pools, or sinks, is a proof of their un
healthfulccss. Remove tbein by necessary
repairs, lime, chloride of lime, or white
washing. Ventilate well your louses and
apartments, Expose your bedding to the
air and Bun. Avoid excessive fatigue.
Keep regular hours in eating and sleeping.
Wear fl innal next to the skin. A good plan
is, if the bowels are at ell diddered, to
wear a broad band of flannel (a flannel Ik lly
band) around the body, reaching from the
hips to the ribs. Maintain the natural tem

amendment by striking out the clause mak

the cause of removal to the next session of
the Senate, which was agreed to.

thing was necessary to be done in this mat
ter, he would yole for it attached to an ap
propriation bill only if they were at the heel
of the session and no time was left to make
other proviaon But such was not the fact.
Tbcy had ample time before theta.
Mr. Trumbull said there was no probabil
ity tbat a separate bill coo Id pass, even by a
majority. Of course it would be vetoed and
a two-thirds vote could not be secured.
Mr. Sumncrfcaid be concurred with hk
friend from Illinois in the propriety of not
withdrawing the amendment. It was high
ly necessary that a check should be placed
upon the unconstitutional power of the Pres
ident to remove.
Mr. Wilson prcLrrcd a general bill, lie
had voted for the reconsideration with great
reluctance, and regretted to see this division
among his friends.
Mr. Trumbull said'hs did not know what
hopes the Senator from Massachusetts (Mr.
Wilson) could have of pasting a general
bill. His Democratic allies, with whom he
was now acting, certainly would not vote for
it. No ! the Senator had deserted his friends
and was now acting with his enemies. The
simple intention aud cfloet of this amend
ment was to prevent ixrsons unconstitution
ally appointed to ofEcc from lcccivinjr pay
Mr. Wilson indieatid that it was from no
special friindhip for the President or ap
troval of hi- -olicy, that he voted for recon
sideration, lie said:
When the PresiJcnt commenced his plan of
reconstruction last summer, we were told that
all woubl be right. Well, to-day those States
were as completely under the control of the reb
els as they were the day Jeff. Davis was eaptnr
ed. What kind of delegates have they elected ?
Three loyal men in Virginia, not one in any of
the States diwn to Texas, with the exception ol
one in Miss'ssippi. In Texas, the patriotic Ham
ilton's efforts will be unavail ng, and the same
kind of men will there be elected. He (Mr.
Wilson) knew that there were men in this Cap
itol tvho had besought the President to use the
Federal patronage to build up a party in oppo
sition to Congress a party n bich died before it
was born. There were men goinc; around this
town promising the kingdoms of the world to
the supporters of the President's policy. He
meant the Blairs. There was this man Soovel
ot New Jersey, who came here blustering that
no man should be sent here from New Jersey
who weald oppose the President's policy. What
do you think of a letter written to n govern
ment officer saying that "the Secretary of the
Treasury directs me to request yon to appoint"
such a man "at the tagnhon of Mr. Soo
vel f" Ibis mm geovel now struts over New
Jerty claiming to control the patronage of that
State, and appointments nie now on cur table
made by bis influence.
Mr.WHsrn went on to remark that he thought
tbe present aspect of affairs the result cf the
policy of the i 'resident was causing more
trouble and distress than the whole four years of
ar. He honestly believed that tbe present ex
ecutive bad caused more anguish and heartfelt
sorrow to the millions of loyal men and women
of the country than any man that evr lived.
Mr. Howe f-aid no President was ever un
der greater obligations to the party that
elected him, than the present Executive. He
vras raade the candidate of a party to
which lie bad been opposed all his life, and
ought, above all other Presidents, to be tol
erant of opinions differing lrom his own.
Mr. Doolittle defended the President, and
said that he (Doolittle) had lost confidence
in the newspapers and ceased to read them.
If the President bai erred at all, it had been
in being too lenient in tolerating tho vilest
of personal abuse from newspapers whoso
editors or proprietor held office under his
administration.' Tho President would not

ter who might leave it or who might come
into it. The Democratic party had been

South prosperous, and we make them our

Importations, be said, must be checked or
financial disaster must follow, ne may
expect something from the States lately in
rebellion though not an amount in pro por
tion to their relative cumbers. Never fruit
ful in taxable resources, they have less now
than ever. Taking all things into considera
tion tbe Committee of Ways and Means' felt
willing to report the bill as it stands, which
will reduce taxation the present year in
round numbers about $73,000,000.
In reference to the exemptions proposed,
Mr. Morrill taid :
With reference to reconstruction of the
government. I admit that the policy of the
ucmocraiic ooay is a simple policy. It is a
policy in which, for ten year', within my
observation, they have been consistent. It
is a policy which they laid down as early as
VSM. in the platform made at Cincinnati,
wherein thev declared suletantiilly. that it
was tbe right of a territory to he" admitted
into this Union with such institutions as it
ehose to establish, not even by implication
admitting that the rvpresrntativc of the ex
isting govemmrnt had any right to can vacs
those institutions, or to consider ttv ngb: of
the territory to be recognized as a Sute.

. . I.. . -. 1 or I 1 .1 ,1 : . 1 : .1 ' l i 1
nuutc vi Mick policy to int-, uiy i:u legiti
mately followed. First wc saw its results in
tbe doctrine ol Mr. Buchanan announced in
IsGO that while tho Constitution did not
provide for or authorise the mission of a
State from this Union, thin was no power
in the existing government to compel a State
to remain in the Union against its own judg
ment. Following that doeti in tbey eome
legitimately to the conclusion of to-day, in
which they are supported, as I understand,
by the President of the United States upon
the one side, and as I know, bv the testi
mony of Alex. H Stopbens, late Vice Prcsi- j
dent of the so-called Confcderacv. upon tha
inner ; inai aucinnc is that tnc-i- eleven
States have to day. ea-.-h for it Ii, nn i list
ing and unquestionable right of representa
tion in tbe government of ,l!.is country, and
that it is a continuous right which lias not
!een interrupted by any of the events of tbe
war ibis is a simple policy : it is a direct
policy ; it is a policy which can be comprc-"
bended ; it is a policy ol the Democratic
party. Now, whether, the Prtsid. nt of the
United States or the humblest citizen ot the
country accepts or avows it, be hus no right
whatever to call it his policy. It is the
policy of tbe Democratic party.
I wish to lay before the House a proposi
tion, and 1 beg tbe attention of Democratic
gentlemen to it. The propositi in is this :
Virst, tbe Democratic party maintain that a
State of tbe American Union canu t by its
own acts separate use it trout us associate's.
Secondly, that the events of this war. in
cluding the public acts of the pit pic and
governments ol the eleven rtU Hi u.- Sutes.
have not in any way changed the c institu
tional Klnliotit. which, previous M the war
SUDsuteU between tnosc people and States on
the one h:,nd. and the national gnv rnment
on the other. Thirdly, that tho-e States
reflectively, and the loyal tropic thereof,
have nn immedi'.tr and uinpus:i mabic right
of iepriKiitation, pronltd uImuvs that
each person elected i,oW is and heretofore
has Km loyal to the gotcrciin n: und a sup
porter of the Constitution ot the country, of
which fact c .CM House in the s-.le judge on
the ipicstiun oi the riht of a claimant to a
siat. And, therefore, fourthly, that no
legislation or amendment of the (Voetitu
tion is neccx;ary or even proper, a .i prere
quisite to the full exercise ul tbe right of
representation in the Congress of the United
Slates by the people and States lately in in
surrection. 1 do not say that every man who supports
the proposition which I have stated here
to-day gave aid and comfort to the rebellion
and participated in treason. The converse
of this proposition is true, but the country
ought to notice tbe fact. Tho instincts of
men are higher than tbe leason of men ; for
throucb tbe instincts God teaches, without
tbe intervention of l.iilillc logic and theo
ries of reason. The instincts of men arc
right on all these matters. Tbe affirmative
proposition that I lay down is that, as far as
there is any testimony Itforc the county,
every traitor ol the South, and svmpatbixer
with treason in the North, sustains the poli
cj of the Democratic party and the Presi
dent That is an alarming fact
First we traverse the Dcmicratic proposi
tions by a resolution now before this House
in this particular. Wc admit equality ol
ret reecntatiun, based upon the exercise of
tho elective franchise by the people. Tho
propositi'in in the matter of suffrage falls
short of whit I desire, but so f.tr as it goes
tends to the equalisation of the inequality
at pro-en t existing ; and while I dc-mand,
and shall continue to demand, the franchise
for all loyal male eitisens of this country
and I cannot but admit the iss-ihility that
ultimately those eleven States may lie re
stored to representative power without
acter of which is well sketched in the I
answer of an ex-rebel officer who was an

" The bill proposes to wholly exempt from
taxation many articles and to largely reJnce it
upon others, and among those will be found
slaughtered animals, salt, sugar, starch, coal,
soap, vinegar, saleratus, clothing, boots and
shoes. These cxemptirus and reductions will
lessen family expenditures and be a rein f to all
classes of the community. Isreasmakers and
milliners, wielding a potent influence as tbey
do, will no longer be treated as men sutject to
taxation, but as deserving of fivor. Though
tbey may tax os, we do not propose to tax them.
It has hern the policy from tbe start (and its
wisdom has been only exceptionally questioned)
to keep free from taxes all fertilizcis, draining
tiles, and many of the more expensive imple
ments of agriculture. It is now also proposed
to relieve freights, perhaps one of the mott in
defensible taxes wi have bad, perpetually
checking commerce, and adding to the price of
purchases, as well as diminishing the price of
sales. It will be seen these arc to be utterly
abandoned, as are all Ike articles in schedule A,
except gold watches, silver plate, billiard tables
and carriages valued above $300, as by the tes
timony ot tne collectors, tbe tax upon all tbe
other articles as are therein embraced amounted
to less than the cost of collection, while it im
posed domiciliary visits alwiys obnoxious to a
spirited people. It has been considered import
ant not to eheck any enterprise for building for
repairs of buildings, and to this end building
materials, such as brick, freestone, marble,
slate roofing, elate, lime, and cement, have
been placed on the fiee list The tax imposed
upon paper, books, and binding, entertained
with little hospitality from the first, is surren
dered at the first opportunity withHit regret. Tic
tax on KDonieugc, as it nas Men often styled, if
it ever existed, it is to lc hoped will be now
abandoned. Tbe tax upon all repairs, always
indefinite and of dubious propriety, may also
well be removed. If a horse runs away with a
carriage, or a locomotive gets smashed , It seems
oppressive lor tbe Government to seize the op
portunity ot sucti misKrtanc lor levying a fresh
As to the income tax, Mr. Morrill said he
questioned if ever a people paid a tax more
bocestW and accurately than they had this.
Ifitvjcrc tq be a permanent feature it
would need fundamental cbangis The ob
jections to such a tax were forcibly presented,
in view of which the committee proposed to
lessen the weight by exempting the first
$1000 of inch jiers n. How much of a re
duction this will make iu the receipts cannot
be estimated, but probably not over from 10
to 15 prr cent., while it is likely to diminish
the number of persons taxed nearly onc
Lalf. The committee also propose to make
the income tax after this year uniform at
five per centum upon the annual gains,
which will make a lass of about $17,000,000.
In oar list cf exemptions, said Mr. Morrill,
we strove to reach earliest those articles upon
which a reduction cf cost coald bring relief to
the masses of our people. It may very likely
lie true that many articles cot now relieved can
man whose disloyalty cannot be proved..
When we oasn the doors ot the S- nato and

Tax Ixoume tax. The reason given by Mr
Morrill for taking off m tbe new tax bill,
the additional tax of 5 per cent on meoates
above $5000, was that " in a republican
bra of govermajnt tbe true theory is to
make no dtstisrtione as to persons in the
rate of taxation ; recognizing no class for
special favor, we onght not to create a class
ol special burdens."
We can see but little force in that reason.
Mr. Raymond's view of the case seems to us
more sensible. He said :
I know that alt theoretical writers insist that
it is unjust and impolitic to impose a graduated
income tax, that every man -h .ald pay the
same per crntagr on his income, whatever its
annum may be: but there is this fact, which it
stems to me ought n l considered that the
secind five thousand dollars of a man s ii come
is generally much mere easily earned tL m the
ftrt five thousand. Certainly a man can better
afford to pay a second tax on all ever five than.
sand than to pay a heavv tax on the fint she
thousand of his income. 1 confess that I do nut
thtnk it wise, in the nicsent state of tbe coor-
try, to eiemrt the second Sve tbouan 1 of a
man's income from a second tax. I know that
this may fall heavily upon portions of the com
munity; but. fortunately, they will be those
portions of the community which can best afford
to bear it
