TIIE STATE TAX. — The following card Isaac B, Gara, Deputy Secretary of the Commonwealth, fully explains itself: JJAHISLI R, PA„ April '23, 18(17. Editors Goseiir, — Many of the journal of the State have given currency to the 1 following: • " The Legislature ha< passed an act abol ishing tiie State tax ou personal property, a -dsiibsfitiiiing thcrcf'oi, a ievy apportion- j ed am -tig the different counties according i to the population." Allow me t<> say,thai no such act haS been wet to tins Department for examination j and approval at.d that consequently no such j a't eouid have received the concurrent 8 tnc-1 lion o'. the two Houses of the Legislature, i As it is desirable that the pi evading er- ' icaenus impression in regard to the matter should be cm reeled, I would respectfully | r<-quest the mention ot the above slated tact . in your columns. Yours very truly, Isaac B* Gara, UXDEKWOOD. —The following is a por tion of ("ndri wood's testimony before the . Rump Judiciary Committee, not many j months ago: Question. Could either Davis or Lee be convicted of treason in Virginia ? Answer. Oh, no, unless you had a pack ed jery. Q. Could you manage to pack a jury there ? j A.I think it would be very difficult, but I it could be doae, 1 could pack a jury to 1 convict them. The jury which this "judge" now has w i h lnm at Richmond, and wuh which ho is extremely anxious to "try" Davis, was ! drawn by a I nited States marshal who is i either bis son or nephew, and it numbers a- i •ti'M.g us member five negroes, with John ' Minor Botts as foremen. Comment is un- Lecessary. JCW A Virginia negro, according to an exthange, on hearing that Congress was going to give lands to the darkies, said: < "Land de debbii! l's free now, and don.t want no iand. l's gwine to git worms and . go fishing." Give him a vote. i Inhuman Treatment of a Child. ... We clip from the Scranton Register, the following account of an outrage, com mitted ou a little child in that city week before last, which seems to have its only parallel in the case of the Rev. Joel Lind sey, who murdered bis infant child be cause it did not say its prayers. Blake, the inouster spoken of, is said to have spent the evening in question at a prayer meeting, where no doubt, he prated loudly of charity and chanted ; '•That mercy I to others show, That taercy show to me.". A case of this character took place in this city, which if the statement of tlie child is credited, is one of the most inhu man acts we have ever been called upon to record, and stamps those engaged in it r.s monsters void of the common instincts of humanity. An interesting little boy aged eight vears, son of Mr. David Bailie, living in thejEighih Ward, went into the store of George Biake Co., dealers in Sewing Machines, No. 322 Lackawanna avenue on Wednesday, for tiie purpose of getting a ball. What transpired after that we prefer to rairate, as near as we can, as it was told ns by the child and his parents, who are intelligent, pious ank respectable people. THE CHILD'S STOUT. lie said he took two balls from a box ! and was going to show them to an older playmate to know w Licit one was the ! kind to get. Gergc Biake, or a cletk by the name of Hoigate saw him with the halls, feud Blake took tiiem from him, cuffed and shook him very hard, dragged him down cellar where it was very dark and shut him up in a stone hole, and Blake told him if he cried he would put a stick in his mouth. lie said he begged and a.-ked them to let him go home and his father would pay for the ball. It was muddy and dark, anu water falling on me in the hole, and I crL-d. A boy came down and struck me in the face and hurt me. I was afraid, but did not make a noise for fear they would put the stick into inv mouth. In the night the rats run over ine and made queer noises. I got a stick and struck thein and nia !e them squeal. 1 knelt down and prayed to God not to let the T'ttx eat me up. and I guess lie scut a good angel to keep theui away. This is the substance of the child's state ment. Mr. Bailie searched for the lost child till midnigdt. Mrs. Bailie, a nervous wo man, was nearly crazed on account of her Charlie's absence, and at four o'cloek the next morning was searching for biru.— About five o'clock be crawled out of his prison through the coal hole in the side walk and started for home. His mother saw him coming down the avenue and calhd him He seeun*d bewildered and did not know her, She spoke to him again when he recognized her, and with a cry of agony sunk to the ground, the ef fect of exhaustion and fright, She took her pale and trembling child ail covered with mud ai d filth and carried him into the house, and after beisg washed, warm ed and the pioper restoratives admini.-ter ed, he became calm enough to tell h s ter rible sufferings alone in a >toe vault dur ing the long and dreary hours of that fear ful night! We shall make no comment'', for if the child's tule is true they are not needed ; if untrue, the Kgal prosecution about Iteing commenced against George Blake and his man Ilolgate will bring the facts to light and exonerate the parlies. But we will ci e with tbereai'iik made to us b}- the lather. "My son is subject to the chronic Croup. Had he been taken and died with it and his litile body mutilated by the lats, my God, would it not have been aw— fulj" We have subsequent information that the above very strange and unfortunate case has been settled for ?/>OO and the suit withdrawn. It will be seen that we have the story upon one side only, with out explanation. LATER. We have since received through the Register, Mr. Blake's explanation, as fol lows : To the Editors of the Daily Ryister: An exagoratcd account, entitled ''lnhu man Treatment of a Little Child," having appeared in your columns, you will confer a favor by inserting a few lines from me iu reply. The bov in question, having been de tected stealing, and charged with the act confessed the tact. Thinking tnat a slight putiishlncni would do him good,ftertalking with him, he was shut up in the cellar, and to impress him still further, a stick was given him, and he was told to defend him self against the rats. This is probably what made the boy rupposejbe was overrun with them afterward. There was nocutfing or shaking whatever. This occurred after eight o'clock in the evening, and I left word with Mr. Ilolgate, to release the boy at nine o'clock. Mr.lJolgate did bring him up at the time directed, but thinking that he did not appear at all repentant, confined him again on his own responsibility, where he lemained til! he escaped. In the morn ing. the parents being informed of all the fo ts, expressed themselves entiiely satis li d with the proceedings, had they been informed of the whereabouts, of the boy. This all occurerd on Wediesday and Thursday morning,*an(f would have ended fere tut that some persons with whom I have had difficulty, excited Mt 'Bsilie and induced lnm to commence an action against Mr. Hoigate and myself without sayicg anything to us on the sul ject Wishing to avoid a suit, and knowing that I had no right to punish another person's child to the slightest extent, I had an interview with Mr. Bailie, and settled with him on his own terms. No one can condemn the protract ed punishment more than myself; still, as the act, however wrong, was an error of judgment, which he deeply regrets, and was only intended for the good of the child, wet feel justified in retaining Mr. Hoigate in ou r employ. The boy was not struck a any time, nor denied water, Scranton, May 6:H. GKO. BL/KC, Bear thU la Hind, The Democratic party was organized in ] 1800, says a contemporary, and came into power in 1801. With brief iutervals, it continued in power np to 1861. During all this time, no nation was more prosper ous than this; no people more happy; no government less burdonsome. Taxes were lighter than under any other govern ment in the world; labor was better re quitted, and political and religious liberty was more universally enjoyed. There was nnion between the States, happi ness and prosperity among the people. — When bad men sought to destroy the Un ion, their first blow was at the Democratic party. They only hoped to accomplish this through the defeat and destruction of that party. By dividing its counsels they secured its defeat. That was seven years aero, and what have we to-day ? A broken Union; ten of the States under a military despotism; political and religions liberty a by-word; the burdens of government more crushing than those of any other on earth ; labor is remunerate! with depreci ated promises to pay, and the necessaries of life are at famine prices; crime has in creased a hundred-fold, and vice is clothed in purple and fine linen ; the food ws eat, the clothes wc wear, the colfius which en compass the last remains of the dead, are all taxed to the last point of endurance— and what have we gained? Nothing, in finitely morse than nothing ! Is it uot time that the memory of the awakened the people to an ambition for a glorious future ? What the country was, the Democratic party made it; what it is, is the work of the enemies of that party. Is it not time that the peopie bc gau to reflect upon the necessity of restor ing that party to power, asd with it, re storing the country to both national and individual prosperity ? The signs of the times indicate that reason is resuming its throne, a..d passion, preju.lice and hatred are passing from the hearts and minds of the people. The day of remuneration i§ dawning. Parilons--tVho Asked Them f J One cf the greatest crimes laid to the charge of President Johnson, says the Pittsburg Post of the 12th ult„ was his having pardoued so many rebels—"red handed rebels', we believe, is the phrase ot the halulntins when they speak upon this exciting theme, The Radical Sena tors have abused him tor this exercise of the paidocing power; Ashley has become indignant, Builer has grown furious —and the lesserlights of the Radical party have so wrought upon, tbat no tongue can tell their indignation. Some fool in Congress, who didn't know all this fury was make believe, got up a resolution of inquiry, and for he purpose of impaling the President upon his own weapon —compelling him to commit hari kari called on him for a list of pardons, and a statement of the names of those who had advised their issue; the document was forwarded lately, and we want our Radical friends to sec it: At the request of Wiliiam G. Brown low, Radical Governor of Tennessee 63 On advice of the Radical Governor Wells of Louisiana 256 On advice of the Radical Governor Murphy of Arkansas 125 On advice of Jack Hamilton of Tex as, who is held up by the Commer cial Gazette aud Dispatch as the bean-ideal of a Southern Rodical. 525 On the le'commcndation of Radicals 2,109 On request of Governor Bramlette of Kentucky, 64 On request ofGovernor Fletcher of Missouri • 48 On recommendation of Governor Bradford of Maryland 94 On recommendation of Governor Marvin of Florida 97 AH of whom, although not Radicals, have always been regarded -as sound and patriotic friend# of the Union.* On recommendation of Hon. A. A. Kmg of Missouri 55 By the President, on his own motion 121 We trust the Radical press of this State, will have truthfulness enough to publish the facts; and take back their slanderous charges. IRISH WIT. —At a seizure of illicit whiskey in lieiand, all the "native" was destroyed with the exception of a small bottle full which was preserved by the officers, to be used in evidence against the parties charged The day of trial at length arrived; the bottle was produced, and handed to a witness whose power of dis crimination between the "parliament" and real "mountain dew" were considered un rivalrd. After the oatu being duly aJnrin istered, he was ordered by the attorney for the prosecution to take the bottle, taste the liquor, and say if what it contained was "poteen." The bottle was raised to bis lips, then again raised and completely emptied of its contents, thus destroying all evidence against the accused, he remarking ai he laid it down : "Well, your honors, I won't swear it's poteen ; hut, faix, it's a beautiful imitation."

The National Intelligencer of May Ilth is before us, containing the proceedings of the Second Ward (Washington) Republi can Club, on the evening of the 10th, upon the'nomination of Ward Candidates for the municipal or city election to be held on the first, Monday of June. The meeting was coraposwd mainly of darkies with a sprinkling of radical whites, and among the latter the Reverend Benjamin B. Em ory, well kuown to many of our readers. Benjamin was a preacher in a small way before the war, and an editor in Wyo ming County, but obtained an office in one of the Departments at Washington, about 1861, and has since resided there with his family. But he has cot altogether neg lected his duties as a former citizen of this State. On two or three occasions he squatted in the Fishing Creek election dis trict in this County, and swore in his vote as a resident Benjamin! had peculiar ideas upon the laws of doinietl, and upon his rights as a citizen, and he conformed his conscience to them. While retaining his doraicii and office at Washington, (and returning at or.ce after playing elector) he conceived he could squat down ten days any where-in Pennsylvania and thereby secure the right to vote. This was a grave error, but it belongs to the past.— We lire too rapidly in these days, under too much of pressuie, to turn back and re view small events in our career as a peo ple, and therefore a great many of the performances of political preachers among us in recent years, will soon pass out of memory, will be forgotten if not forgiven. Time is, itself a statute of repose, for it brings for getfulness even where it does not excite charity. But Benjamin now emerges frcm bis late obscurity in a Washington Cleikship, to become adviser, prompter, guide and friend of our new "fellow citizens ot Afri can descent" at Washington, in their clum sy attempts to exercise the right of suf frage with which Congress has endowed tht'm. Hear him at the Club meeting: "The name of William Rutherford (as a proposed candidate for Common Coun cil) was next called up. [Cries of "Who is he !" "What is he ? ' "We don't know him. and we don't want him !"] Mr. Lew is, (colored) Chairman of the Committee, said that the name of Mr. Rutherford was satisfactory. Rev. Mr. Emory said, he (Rutherford) was a sound Radical. [Voice, "He is a bully boy !" "The name of Mr. Rutherford was en thusiastically endorsed." It is satisfactory to know that Benjamin is in the line of duty, and it is to be hoped that he will in due time obtain, with or without the aid of the "colored brethren,'' an office still belter than ihe one he now holds. Such merit his should not be overlooked ! — Colu'itbinn. Deacon A., while passing through his lot the other day, stpoped down to tic his shoes. A pet ram, which the boys had tamed, among other things was taught to regard this posture as extremely offen sive: lie instantly pitched into the old gentleman's undefended rear and laid him full length in a mud hole. Picking him self up, the Deacon discovered the cause of his overthrow standing in all the calm ness and dignity of a conscious victor.— Ilis rage was boundless, and he saluted him with the energetic language ; "You damned old rascal!" ' At that moiuont he caught a glimpse of the bor.ign face of tiie "minister"' peeping through the fence, and he instantly added: "It' I may be allowed tba expression," DEMOCRATIC VICTORIES, —At the muni cipal election in \Villiam<port, Lycoming county, on the 15th, Dr.W. \V. Logan, the democratic candidate for mayor was elected bv 87 majority—a gain of 10 i votes. Last spring the Radical canidate had 104 major ity. This is a most signal triumph, and entitles the Democracy of that little city to unbounded praise. On the same day the Democracy of Wilkes Barre, Luzerne county, elected Hon. J. B. Stark to the mayoralty over Col. E. 11. Ilarvey, the present inavor, by 08 majoritv-a gain of 408, Last year Ilar vevs majority was 400. This is certainly a surprising and gratifying result, and from it and siinilat victories elsewhere in the State, we feci confident that Radicalism will fall irrecoverably at the next geueral election. Aud so mole it be. A couple of old bachelors out West who lived a so it of c-4 and dog life togeth er fur a goQd many years, having been to camp-meeting, were sl'ghtly ennverted, and both of them concluded to refprm: " Brother Tom" says one, when they had arrived at'home "let us sit down and 1 II tell you what we'll do. You tell me of all my faults, and I'll you of all yours ; and so we'll know how to get about mendin' 'em." " Good" says brother Tom. 44 Well, you begin." '• No you begin, brother Joe," •* Well, in the first place, you know, brothc Tom, you will lie." Crack goes brother Tom's big fist be tween brother Joe's blinkers; and a regular scrimage ensued, until in the course of about ten minutes, neither being able to' come to tiuie, reformation was posponed. READING TIIEM OUT OF TBE PARTT. — A late number of the N. Y Tribune says; "Men who hold that none but Whites should vote may be well enough m their place, but there is no room for them in the Republican party. Every one who stays in it keeps at least ten voters out of it." There are some Republicans in this countrv who have always said they could Dot stand negro equality, political or socid. Are they ready to be read out of the party for not embracing cuffie ? Dou't all answer at once. A young lady of Urbana, Illinois, who was recently caught smoking a cigar by the "local" of the Gazette of that place, gave as her reason for the-?ct: "That it made it smell as though there was a man aroaod." Another Negro Riot, Bill Kelley, the Radical demagogue and malignant, seems to bs "peddling" blood shed and murder to the Southern people. After inciting a riot and bloodshed in New Orleans, he to<>k his evil way to Mobile, Alabama, and there spoke on the night of the 14th iu such a manner as to cause fur ther rioting, bloodshed and murder. The following are the telegraphic particulars : A large number of negroes and a few whites assembled at the corner of Govern ment and Royal streets to hear Kelley's speech. The meeting was very qniet, un til Kelley, finding the thing tather tame, commenced abusing the whites, and de claring that he came to discuss and claim the rights to which the negroes were en titled, and that he "bad fifteen regiments at his back, and if these proved inade quate the whole United States army would not." After continuing in this strain for some time he was interrupted by a white man in the outskirts of the crowd. The latter was immediately ar rested by the police. A shot was then fired at that point, (it is not known by whom,) when the negroes, who were all at once opened an indiscriminate fire upon the whites, who, as a general thing, were upon the outside of tbs crowd. A l.rg e number of shots were fired, chiefly by the negroes, as the whites were not armed, having gone to the meeting merely to bear Kelley's speech. The rioting lasted about an hour, but was finally quelled by the po lice before the arrival of companies of the Fifteenth Regiment. Three white men and two negroes were killed and a large number wounded, among them several policemen. In this riot we Vave another example of the workings of the Radical plan of "re construction."' White men shot down by niggers because a single white man dared to taise his voice against the vile calumnies of a Radical demagogue whose ; falsehoods and black guardiau long ago made him notorious throughout Pennsyl vania ! Are the whito masses of the Northern States prepared for this? Are the Southern whites to be disfranchised, despoiled of th<>ir property, driven under the lash of Radical blackguards, and, alter being subjected to every indignity which malice can invent, are. they to be made targets for lazy, vicious, Bureau-supported negroes! It is high time for the North ern masses to take some action in this mat ter, and that speedily. — Patriot A. Union. The .Military Reconstruction Bill. Hon. Henry Clay Dean, of lowa, in a receut speech. said: The Reconstruction Bill is the most mon strous crime of the Christian era It is a crime against free government in this—that it disfranchises, without indict ment, trial, or any process of law, the learned, intelligent, and highly culti vated citizens, representing the busi ness, manufactures, commerce, navigation and property of eleveu millions of people who, from time immemorial, have been free. It is'a crime against civilization in this— that it transfers the powers legislation and administrtion from the violently disfran chised intelect of the country to the will, passion and violence of the African barba rians, among them, who" will trample down those glorious landmarks and eminent tri umphs of progress which have cost centu ries of labor, and celebrate tLe genius of ages. It is a crime agiiast Christianity in this -that it trauslcrs the governmen of a Chci.-ti in pi ople to the control o: a degrade 1 imbecile race of Heathen, who yet retain the idolatry and superstitions of Heathen worship. It is a crime against reason in this—that it places bayonets in the bands of the un reasoning rabble, to destroy life, liberty and property at will, in violation of that estab lished custom, among savages and civilized men of commiting the rule of trioes, nations and kingdoms to the nble3t and purist men. It is a crime against human nature, which commits its preservation to its most elevated and superior races and the most eminent and trustworthy of every race ; in this, that it degrades the highest type of the human family to a subordina tion to the lowest species of the race of man. This reconstiuction Bill is, in its details and execution, more atrocious than any usurpation ever exercised by Great Brit ain over Ireland, bv Russia over Poland, by Austria over Hungary, cruel and abom inable as they have beeu, in this—that the rulers ol these conquered people ware of the same general race, customs, habits, re ligion at:d color, while the voters to whom is committed the rule of the people of the excluded States, are of a different race, with uo common sympathies, interest*, destinies, or hopes. COULDN'T TELL. —A negro witness was examined in a Washington city court, to prove the identity of a white mau, the oth er day: District Attorney—"Did you Bee the man ?" n "Yes, sar, I seed him •" "Was he a white man ?" "Don't know, sar !'' "Do you tell me you saw the man and can't say whether he was white or black ?"
