The iMialhgtne-r takes from the Joum~t oJ Commerce a synopsis ef the proposed tax iff bill of the Committee of Ways and Means which, we in torn take from their colamns, as follows: ' The basis of the change proposed is a re dmot inn of 30 per cent, from the rates estab lished %j the ?*ri?of 1M0. This would change the schedules to %, 32 24 10. 16, 11, 8, and 4 per cent, Instead of 106. 40 SO, 15 20, 15.10, and 5, aa now established.

A Good Man Go-? "The death of John W. Maury it an event that will fill more than one heart with sorrow. He died at bis residence in this c.ty yesterday morning after a brief illness. He was not yet forty-six years of age, aud leavos a widow and twelre ohildren With all his abundant means, well earned daring a life of useful net* and honor, tfod has deprived them of their greatest riches on earth?the hortani and the father. His real wealth however, in him self?in that simpla, chaste, and harmoniou character, wM?*a made bis presence like a blessing, and his progress through life one calm summer's day There was a beauty in the even consistency of bis nature?in the tub deed grace of his action??in his qnie; ohari ties?in his ealarged and unostentatious pub lie spirit, that marked him out, even amotg statesmen and scholars, as a distinguished man?showing that even in the unobtrusive ehade* of ptivata life a man m\y grow into greatness by other qualities than those which ehiue bett whoa seer and heard by the pab lie. At home, in the hallowtd atmosphere ?.f bis ta:aily, whom h? worshipped with on bounded affection, or in the avenues of the world, or while a candidate for the suffrages of the people, or io the expression of his opin ions, he was the sane gentle, tolerant, and generous spirit." The above remarks are from tbe Uhw.-i cf this morning We think we recognise ia them the pen of the e-roi>r'?thed Forney. A Cciapiiic.nt Appreciated.

The Patent Law* -The bill for the amend ment or reconstruction ef the patent laws, reported at the last session, we believe, by Senator James, is a measure of great public importance, and. as such, is entitled to proper consideration at the bands of Congress It was matured only on consultation between tho?e member* of bo*h Houses mm distin guished by their familiarity with the wants of the country and the public service in suoh conection. We learn at the Patent Buieau that its enactment is regarded there as being vf prims public importance. Such, we under stand, is the opinion of the Commissioner of Patents, with whoee assinanoe the measure iu question ha* bean arranged. There is no doubt that general lagi.'lation on the subject ?reatly needed both for the interest of the public and that of patentees and their ai signets. All are losers by the existing condi tion of the patent laws, which is more prolific of law suits and violations of pub;ic and pri vate rights than result from the condition of the laws of the United States Government on any ether sebjact of business interest what ever. The Commissioner of Patents having proved, by his adminlrtration of his office, that his judgment on all matters appertaining to its du'ies is eminently reliable, we feel it to be our duty thus to urge prompt compliance with his earnest recommendation ia this m atter. Private Business.?The House deserve great credit, indeed, for their business-like worh of 'Q disposing of their private oalen dar We never saw matters conducted more efficiently or sensibly in their ball Their d.*y s session forcibly exemplified what they L?ii do in the way of driving business ?p, so private individuals of business habits do, when they est their Honorable heads ami hearts earnestly to the worh in hand. No speech of more than five minutes' duration was made, and everything said was clearly understood and appreciated by all the mem bers present. Thousands of heretofore deso late hearts will, donbtless, rejoice over their dsy's work, wherein nought was done but jus tice, so manifest that not a single member was found to object to any portion of their favor able action The Proposed Inereeee of the Army In all garter* of the federal metropolis, active preparations are already being made to apply for commiasiona ia the four new regiments to be raised (if the Monse assents) under the Senate's amendment to the army appropria tion bill. This being the point at which the influential politicians are now assembled, the preparations are heing made her? by persons on the spot, for themselves or in behalf of others. For every oSoo in oonnection with them, from ooloneloies dews to lieutenaafcrfes, it is very etcar that there will be one hundred applicants tor each post to be awarded. It make* us fairly sick at heart to witness the general propensity to get into public servioe, as exemplified by the eagerness, industry, and pertiascity with which the work of getting ready to apply for theee places has been com menced, already, in Washington.
