Tbe members of tbe Ways and Means Commit tee appear to be about equally divided upon the subject of contracting the currency. Tbe proba bDixy Is that the committee will adhere to the present monthly rate of contraction. Mr. McCnl loch's plan U for a more rapid contraction, hut the committee will hardly report i& Caror of such a comae, as the temper of the Boose Is such that were the matter to come up in that shape a strong attempt would be made to withhold t&e power to withdraw even four millions per month. The opposition of the House to contraction Is quite marked. BAAS CttCTXATIOX. It seems improbable that there will bo anr meas ure passed by the House looking to as increase of thv circulation. There seems to be a desire to take from the Secretary the power to tamper vrith the currency, nor do they believe in his use o( the currency to regulate prices. In short the indications are that the House will favor the finan cial policy of the Treasurer. IXCOSX Til AJO> SCATS WAB DXBTS. The report of Mr. nnihouse, of New York, in regard to settle g apart the revenue tax lor the paying of State war debts, has been made pnb> Uc. ■ It attracts much attention and causes a good deal of dlscnwlon in Cougreselonal circle#. The concluding portion, after au argument in favor of arranging for the payment of the war debt*, is as follows t •* Should tbo policy of providing for the war d« bts ot the States be favorably regarded by Coa ercss. It would not be impossible to devise some nar in which it could be fairly and equitably ac complished. A plan, which appears free from any lonsidable difficulties, is that relinquishing to ine States some particular source of revenue now nndtr the control of the General Government, to be appropriated and used by the Stales for this ernre-a object. In this mode there appears to be rodlilicet tax that could more properly be devot ed to Ihl# purpose than that on Incomes. Uit lUtscS'a tax cornea wlihia the meaning Sfthe term “ indited” as used IntheConitlta- UonTandlt “direct” it should be enforced under thernicof apportionment instead of Iflcladed Ip a avetem of Internal duties laid in the rule of nn|. f.irriliv The receipt# from this source forth® K year «ding Juno 3Wh.IBM, amount to a stun sufficient W accomplish the oh YOL. XX. ject in view, and jet not larger than ran Id be spared without seriously Impairing_tha National resources. It Is confidently believed they would still be ample for the wants of the Government without this particular tax, and if not its joss wonld be supplied by the annual increase of other revenues, or the system could bo extended so as to embrace new subjects. In ibe practical working of the plan, titatei that contracted no debts dor- Inc the «ar or have already paid them, would be able lo discontinue the tax altogether, and thus aSord present-and substantial relief to the tax payers. Oilers not so favorably situated, would nave to continue it for a longer or shorter penod. according to the amount of thtir outstanding debts. ultimately It might be reduced ip three percent, relieving people in Stares so situated from a portion of tbelr burden, and providing ror a more rapid payment of their debts on a dimin ished rale ot taxation. .... “ jn ccnclnsiou. It may be observed tbit the par ticular plan proposed Involves neither as assump tion of any of the liabilities of the States, nor-heir payment tn any form by the Culled States. bach elate would pay us own obligations from the property of Its own citizens, and tbe Genual Cor ciniDvnt would simply suspend the cxcrcue of Its Jurlidictlon over a single source of revenae, that It m'ght be appropriated by the b’ales c or the purpose specified. It Is doubtful wnether. with the currency In a natural circulation, any revenue that can be drawn tram taxes levied on the value •! real and personal property, will more than sulllce to meet the ordinary ex penses of the Stale Government, and pay the debts they have contracted for objects of state concern. Taxes cf this dercrlptlou bear unequal ly on land which pays the larger portion, and thus reach an interest which cannot ba depressed •without auccung the propery ot all, outers. Should the state.’ extend their concurrent Jurisdic tion over the ndd of Internal taxation, they wou'd be entering on a domain already occupied by an o-ber power, which may find ll necessary or ex l>cdlcnt hereafter to Include In Us ay-icms new sources of revenue, asd l*i case of conflict assert the supremacy of 1U own laws and regulations. It appears href, thcr, that this virtual partition of resource* should be respected at least until the wants of the General Government arc supplied.
