A com:hiss:ol h h'ben al>pOinttid
to;revise the tax laws of the State
and said commission will report to
the present Legislatnre. We await
with interest their report and the ac
tion of; the Legislature in reference
to the same. It will require wise and
judicious legislation to meet the re
quirements of the situation without
resulting in hardships to the tax-pay
ers. The Governor recommends that
the ame of making returns and col
lecting taxes be changed. Great
trouble and iicouvelnience and fre
quent mistakes occur from the fact
that we are one year behind in the
paying of taxes. To overcome this
will require an extra levy or the col
lection of two years ax in one year,
either of which would be very hard
upon the taxpayer in the present
condition of the country resulting
from the short crops of the last few
years. The treasurer ought not to
be required to open his books before
the first of October and be required
to keep them open until the 15th of
November of each year.
The Comptroller General estimates
that there are 2,000,000 acres of land
in the State not upon the tax books
at all, and as a consequence no tax
is paid upon it at all. It is also esti
mated that the total taxable prope:ty
in the State is abou?t 51m;XtflR)UC0
while the tax book, sl,ow that only
$150,000.00 are ass ssed. This es
timate shows that nearly half the
taxable property in the State escapes
taxation altogether. This should not
be. The burden of taxation should
be equally borne oy all the pt operty
owners. In addition to this the ine
quality with which the property is as
sessed makes the burden bear une
qually. It is a fact that some per.
sons give it. their property at its full
value, while others assess it at half
or less. These are only some of the
evils, and their adjustment. if adjus
ted at all by legislation, will require
judicious action by our Legislature.
A bill has been introduced in the
present Legislature providing for hie
redistricting of the Judical Circuit s
of the State and the creation of two
new Judicial Circu s. and conse
quently the election of two new ('ir
cuit Judges. Some measuore Es need
ed to bring about u tr.ore speedy
tral of issues. P'ersons who are
forced to c-arry cases into the c-ourts
have frequently tu suffer great in
convenienCe and ex~penlse from long
waiting on account of the slowneCss
with wnlich the~ judicial machinery
moves, and the conbuenjiIt de'ay of
justice. 'I he doecets ig all the coui
ties are cro-wded and more cases arec
put on each court than are di-sposedI
of as a rule. It seems to us it would
be out of the quetion to require
more work from our preser.t jud(ges
than they now perform. anid o.f course
to perform more work the number
will have to be increased.
But there ig anothe'r want~ fel' in
this mastter which the er-estion of two
more judgc-< with twp additional cir
cuits will not Supply. la the e-vent
of the sickness of one of the juidges.
the judicial machinery of a w h
county or circuit should not he stOl)
ped. It not only works injury to
httiat', but the accusedi are en
titled to a speedy tria!. It fregnent
ly happenr, that they hav to
lie injail awaiting a h:eang as
long as their sentence wol4uld be, ini
case they are guilty if they could
obtain a 5pe edy triisl, Simple justice
demandls that they shouldI be speedli
iy tried guilty- o- innocent. In o:.r
county we have had no criminal
court since June and will have none
till next spring. owing to the sick
ness of Judge Presley -at the time of
our regule-r term. Some rovi~sion
*should be made to supply this want.
While legislating on this subject
we think it wouid be a good idea to
hae our judges elected for life or
durig good behavior. Then select
the bet and purest men in the State.
and then lift them as it were, above
the necessity or even possibility of
stooping to meddle with politics a

W: reoice to say that the day set
apart by the President as one of
thanksgiving and prayer was oh
s(rvetl in a manner reflecting credit
on our citizens, and in a way which
s:owed that they rightly appreciated
the miercics anti the blessin.:s and
the inca:cul:e1v t enefits b^stowed
ulpon then by an all-wise cre:itor. Of
much that has calle I for grief in
other sections of the country we in
i this community have been spared.
We are thankful for this. The gen
ral health has been good-we thank
God for that. As an entire people
we have great cause for tihanksgiving
in the e'e tiou which has helped us.
The land ot God was in that. like the
children of Israel we have been led
out of the wilderness, and out of
the bondage of Radicalismn-how
great the cause for thanksgiving here;
we are thankfu. blessed be the name
of God. An! Li:t this community
and thz- whole country rightly ob
served the day gives us cause for
deep thankfulness.
Mere intellectual education is not
the panacea for all ills that one might
suppose. We long since cane to the
conclusion that the highly educated
intelligent man is no better morally
than the n:an whose mind has re
cieved but little knowledge of letters.
The intellectrLal edlucation quickens
and enlarges the muind, so that the
man la rus to know his own value in
the world and is not so liable to be
come the dupe of others. In other
words he becomes better able to take
care of himself and is more worthy
to be a freeman. But so far fron
being a better man he may be a
worse one in consequence of his in
tellectual training and culture.
1)r. John Ellis of New York, him
selt' a New Englander. in his essay
on the causes, of the decline of the
descendants of the Puritans, .gives
some terrible facts in regard to the
eifects of culture, so called. upon tie
morals of the women of New Eng
laml. HIe says that the practice 4i
fot:tichie prevaiits to an atr1iing ex
telnt amtong"-t the educated. refincd
and -ultureiI' women or' that see
tion, who ought in the caise of un
ture to be mothers. It comes, he
thinks. as a lesult of the refining
process of intellectual training with
out the corresponding process of
high moral and religious educa
tion. The result then of intel
lectuial and esthetic traiining, with
out the moral and religious, would
appear to be to -!raie men and wo
men devils instead of angels.
Let the friends of education pon
der this subject well, and let aHi well
wishers to humanity look to it.

General Assembly is called to that
portion of the Comnptroller-G eneral's
Report which refers to the year.which
was lost in the collection of taxes, in
consequence of whiclh loans have to
be obtained from the banks in order
to meet the necessities of the goveru
inent. The pressure in the money
market during the last suummer forced
the Comptroller-Genlcral to suspeud
for a time the issuing of warrants to
all charitable institutions and gene
ral claimants. coipeilling them to
(iiscount their ci :mills and thus entail
ing upon thcmn losses which should
properly belong to the State.
It is estimated that it will require
) 2.195 to m;eet the ordinary e:gei
ses of tie government for the tiscal
year 184-5. and $391,337 to pay the
intere-t on the public debt. The phos
phate royalty should yield $150,000,
and there will be in the treasury an
estimated surplus of $124,255, leav
ing but +489.7G to be raised by tax
ation, and requiring a levy of 3
mills. This amount will probably be
increased by appropriations not in
eluded in the estinate for c'rrent ex

not exceed that of last year. Amount

I do not believe it wil he wise
or jiditcious to pass wi legislation
at th.s tim - looking to the repeal of
the Lien Law. In the present state of
the country our farmers are most
obligel tc have some system of
credit. No doubt the law is abused, a
but -iv credit syst-m will bte abusa(d.
b i-s re'peal it will driv"- the sial
farmer with no property other than
his labor to sim 'ti.in.~ eIS,. To rIpeal
it, we cannot stt" where the l nefits
will come in. We bt lit_ve the far
mers are ende: vorin, to chanze their b
modlC of farming and a'' e(ndeavor
ing to r:Lle heir o-.,n si; plies a
homl, and by so doing We liope.they
will soon become independent of the
Lier. Law, and then they will repeal
it by their own aits to all interests
and purposes.
