TAXiTIoN OF COVEttIVHENT BONDS, Letter from S. 8. Ilnycs, Esq., to tho London Times, Mr. S. S.

In which 1 am strongly censured for having re ported to Congtere lu lavor of a proposition to lew an additional tax upon the Income from properly in the Government luuds. The limit has not tho fairness to mention the purpose, conditions, and limitations uu dcr which tho lax was pmjKMed lo bo levied, or to set forth the general plan of which it vns n par .

Illinois is a State in the North, and Illinois lias uniformly paid the Interest uu her btcrling bonds In coin—not in a depreciated currency. Other States have probably done the same thing, but one instance Is enough tu refute the statement so broadly made. * * • • The Time* admits that the bonds arc not exempt, by law or bv contract, in terms, from taxation by Congress. Yet tor Congress to impose upon them a tax equal to the State tax from which they are exempt, it pro* uounces to be a disregard of the sanctity of a contract, “observing the promised im munity in form, but taking it away in sub stance'.” It docs not condescend to explain how or w hy this is so. Neither argument nor illustration Is resorted to. It is enough to pronounce the dictum ex cathedra, and to fol low it up with denunciation and abuse. However acceptable such fulminations may be to some oi its readers, I presume thinking nen will demand something in addition, to enable them to verify the conclusions put f rlh with such an air of infallibility. If it be permitted, in tuis remote part of the world, to question such high authority, let me ask. how would a tax by Congress admitted to be lawful, take away the promised immunity iu substance, while ob t-.rving it io form. The promised Immunity is exemption from State taxation, not from Tcderal taxation. How is the exemption from State taxation taken away in sub stance by Federal taxation ? Can the TVrne* answer without exposing the absurdity of lit position? Without waiting for its argument, I will prove the negative of its proposition. I will show that the exemption from State taxation is not taker away, in substance, by Federal taxation. The proof of it lies in- - fad, with which ihc 7X‘ncx aiionlJ Lave been acqunuHcd, b‘-iore undertaking to enlighten the 'j-crpl* • f these StaU« up on their moral uu<. unai<. iai obligations. That fact is that tLj lax >• •Icin'and rove ••uv-r of the States have t-- connection what ever «ith ibi* tux vrsteat and revenues of ! the Gotenil Government, except that the General Government la superior, aud in case - r f coniiict, has priority of right. The State Governments, and their subordl*. xale comity and town corporations and mu-' uicipaiilies, collect distinct funds for distinct purposes, with which the Government of the Tcit'J «.vl’niug w do. >.‘-c -le:.- friil < : ovvrnmeal 11V *•'•s colSwW-a-i-trnrrr; •talc «, % .. a orporations ex - ring and actinC , State authority, nave nulhmg to do. It follows that the dcU that a Stale Goveromeut is prohibited by law Irom taxing a species of property, places the General Government under no obligation to refrain from taxing that spe cies of properly. On tbe contrary, the pre sumption would be in favor of exercising the power, because the property, being free from r.tber burdens, would more readily and justly bear it than would other property, jiot fo exempt. For example: a piano, worth five hundred dollats, Is taxed annually— tay tire dollars— under u State Government. The revenue de rived is paid, in certain proportions, Into the Slate at.d Comity Treasuries, to be applied in expenditures lor State aud couniv purpo ses; as for making and-administering the State laws, constructing roads, etc. At the same lime, tbe General or National Govern ment collects a tax of six dodara upon the same piano, which Is paid into Stales Treasury, to be held arid expended lor National purjoses; that is, frr the ex penses of the National Administration, maintaining an army and navy, preserving peace with foreign nations, and guarding the intciisls committed bv the Constitution to Ihc care of the General Government- Sup pose that by a State law. or any other law, the State tux of live dollars should be dis continued and the piano exempted from State luxation, would that exempthmoriaimuuiiy ?•« taken away In substance by the continu ance of the levy of the six d dlars tax by the General Government! Would the bcnciit of the exemption from the State tux ire at all lessened by tbe collection of tbe United States lax? And would It make any differ du e that the United Stales had previously imposed a lighter tux? Clearly mi. Anil it is equally clear that the exemption of properly In the turn)* fr-Mir Stale taxation would not he lost or lessened by the rnllec- Doiiniof an additional United Slates tax; flic promised iiumutilly would not betaken a «u> either In form or sulMtuiioo. I think I have shown the auumpllou of lire Timt* to be groundless, ifmi hie*, pnlrlc of I’t’llig MiftnriM'd by utgutncril.

I>«en jllslieo require It? li> It just that thu hobdtioiJcr* should pay no tux, or n tax merely tiomltml, when their industrious neighbors me heavily taxed hy noth the GVmrui und Btato Govenmu-nt*? Is the oh ligation to support the Government and con tribute to lu revenues Icra strong on the «>w net s of bmiJn than on other citizen* and the owners of other kinds of properly? I answer tm. Why do not the holders of Statu Ixuids claim an exemption Irom Bla\c taxa tion? Because common sense and e».umon justice forhicHt. Common sense and com imm justice equally lorbld any claim of the holders of United States bonds to be. exempt bom United States taxation. When our country, with a total canltal of about eighteen thousand millions. Is paying live bundled millions lua jear in raxes to the General Government, besides all the State, county und municipal taxes, is It unreasona ble to ask that the retired capital in the funds, amounting to over two thousand mil lions, should pay the trilling sum of about twenty millions perannam, when free from oil the other taxes for State, county and mu nicipal purposes, and when the money so to lie ]>aid i? proposed to be bcld in trnst, os « sinking fund, lor the protectioS aud payment t‘f the securities, from the owners of which It Utobederived? 1 think most honest men, all over tbe world, will say It Is not unreasonable, what ever the opinion of the Loudon Time* may be. The only reason that can be given a ir alnst the tax, with any show of plauaibUltv, la, that freedom from taxation favors the public cteditor, although unjustly, and would tend to Induce eapUaiiris to Invest in the tunds it they believed the exemptions would con’ limit* to be submitted to. As they know that human nature revolts at outrage and wrong—that the d*y of submlfsion will pass away some time, and that a convulsion may follow, the end of which they cannot fore see, the attempt to discriminate unjustly tu their lavor, has Hie opposite effect, of excit ing their distrust, and depreciating the securities. But It the effect were to enhance the value of the Fccuritics, aud facilitate the burrow ing ol money by the Government, these ends ate not of sufficient Importance to justify so great and palpable a wr.'ng. 1 wish it were v iiticniu letters of fire in tbe view of the rulers of all nations, that they are trustees for their tax payers, as-weli as for their lax consumcis and creditors ; that the Govern ment that oppresses the m&ssufitssabJccLß,to give unearned riches or advantages, toa priv ileged class. Is a robber and a tblcf. no mat ter under what pretext tt may cloak itself; that tbe right of the producer to tbe fruits of his toll isos sacred as the right of the capitalist to the interest on his bo-:ds; oud that justice must be done by tbe few to the many, as well as by tbe many to tho-few. I do not mean by tills to advise that the poor should .neglect Uuir work to run after the i;jhia Jatuu* of social equality*, or the parti tion ol estates among the needy, or the dis regard of legal rights aud financial obliga tions. 1 mean that those-who are rc*pon tilde for the government of their follow-urea, t. ould tcck to do justice to all^illkc—taking and giving everywhere what is due, neither more not less; acd protecting* equally the ju-n-nn. the property, aod the .sins of all. With due deference to the Times , I sub mit that “ the equalization of taxes" Is con sidered an important object by all enlight ened and honest statesmen. lu relation to the tax under consideration: Ibe question, fairly stated, is whether or not al.erita imposition, the owner ol the prop tri) taxed will pay more than his just pro portion of the taxes. I demonstrated, in my repoit, that after the levy of the tax pro- J"Kd. the lK>ndholderb wou’d pay no more thuu their Just proportion, and this conclu dnn llioTW. lion nnl. ycclnrcj io dispute. As 1 bad previously aliotto that no I.w or rErcemrot forbade ruch a Ur, the argument in Ha favor was conclmhrc. I refbr ihe public lo the report itself for lbo fec t», U exrtfwo.

I am willing to be held responsible by the readets of the Timet in Europe as well as by tbe people of tbe United Stales, for the pro visions of this hill. I am also willing to bear the responsibility of the other propositions advanced in my report, vir: The adoption of a specie standard foroar “legal tender” currency, upon the basis of its market value at the time of the passage o! tbe act for redemption; aud the gradual abolishment of all taxes on industry and consumption, and the substitution of direct taxes, to be laid uniformly throughout the United States, in proportion to the assessed value of property. It is true that the wisest legislation can only be an approximation, often a slow and distant approximation, to what is absolutely right. Complex relations, important and diverse, are to bo studied, understood and treated. New exigencies are to be met. And often, amidst present difficulties, reforms of groat value must be left Incomplete for an other generation; yet none the less should Ihc statesman seek continually to know and to reach the highest and best standard. In the management of tbe public finances, I believe the following conclusions should be accepted os true, amt applied' Is tattle*: ‘ 1. The normal condition of every well governed State la freedom from debt, a condi tion which should not bo left but under the most urgent necessity and should be returned* to as speedily aa possible. , 2. A neither a-ißyteMPJF'ft luccnlator, but an administrator, and la bound, when it has incurred debts, to exhibit fairly Its condition, and use honestly and Emily its assets. of Which the power aud re sources of taxation arc the chief. It is bound to compel contributions from its subjects open- principles of equality, to the extent necessary to pay those debts, without dls additions or abatement. It bas no right, while exacting such con tributions. 10- diminish the relative valEft'Ot propertr, or deslrnv productive industry, by withdrawing or arbitrarily contracting the currency. 4. Us financial as well os political system should be domestic, and Independent of foreign Governments ard capitalists. Sell respect and safety equally lorbld it to solicit moneys from abroad, or to make Its securi ties payable outside of its boundaries. As lar ns the liabilities of the United States are concerned, they seem to me quite within our means of payment, without impoverish ing oar people, and without wronging our creditors. 8, S. liatss.

The Deatli of Gerard, die «,ion Tamer, About two year* ago, the newspapers an nounced the ncath ot Jules Gerard, the fa mous lion killer, during an exploring visit in Central Africa, but gavd no Account of how U occurred.

Huchard, a French merchant, established In the Shuboro. nod by Ali-ben-Mabonicd, Ger ard’s Interpreter, the hardy explorer fell a victim to the cupidity and ferocity of the negroes whom ho had engaged as his guides and protectors. . Ills baggage and provisions were at first pillaged repeatedly, during his journey from Sctaboo to Mama, by the chief ol the former village. Being thus deprived of all that was'necessary lor liltn to continue his route, Gerard sent back his Interpreter to Sierra Leone for a fresh •apply. On his way back to rejoin Ida muster, he learned h( the village of Nlo ■lujiaD that he hail been drowned bv the Kom)* who had conducted him from frooln to Muktilay, und that his body was found In theßiver Jong, which (lows on the terri tory ol Shuboro. According to All's nc eount, the body when found was quite naked —the anus tied behind his Imek, and a piece of wood, with a large stone attached, was ('listened to hi* waist.

A Lclpric correspondent writes the follow ing about a visit to Auerbach's cellar, which I* noted for its connection with Goethe and Faust: Dc.cctidlnp eight or ten Elens from the level of the street, one enters the cellar which is still occupied aa In Goethe’s davs* and In fact since lime immemorial, a* a res’ laurant. The front room is a vaulted cham ber of considerable size, with Its walls well adorned with pictures illustrating Goethe’s writing and representations of Faust’s feats,. these latter being said to have been painted ,in the sixteenth century. The room In which Faust astonished the atndcnisljy his feats of magic and where Mophlstophilea sup. piled them with the choice varieties of wlnos through holes which be bored la the tabic is further to the rcarofthc building and still dcet-cr under ground. Nothing can bo seen in this cafe without alight—and it is In every way adapted to the midnight orgies of such fast young men as Gucthc has depicted. The very cask on which Dr. Kanstus, after performing bis feats, rode out of the cellar, Is still to be seen In Ibis room, and it is ap parently as sound and strong as It was three hundred years ago. If any one doubts that it is the same cask he can setfell doubt- at rest by reading the Inscription which is written upon It asserting Its Identity, and which bears tho dale of 1535. In ibis room Goethe Is esld to bare sat with his compan ions by the midnight lamp, drawing Inspire lion for fats work probably from that same casket.
