Xash exile Union, August 7. Licenses ior "General Business.1' Among the provisione of the new Internal Tax law, in regard to ?'licenses," is one which was rot in tbe original bill or in tbe House amendments, but which was put in by the Sen ate and adopted by the House. The sections in regard to license specify variousemployments, trades and professions for which license is re quired. But tbe new provision makes a whole sale sweep by declaring that a license fee of ten dollars shall be required ?.K>f every person, firm or corporation engaged ill any business, trade or profrssion whatever, for other li cense is required, whose gross annual receipts therefor exceed one thousond dollars." Tbe application is so extensive that it would seem to take in all classes of persons prosecuting business, and render nnueccessary all Uiose portions of tbo act which specify the parties requirt d to take out license at the rate of ten dollars per annum. As the words appear above quoted they are extensive in their signification, bat a decision or commissioner Lewis, just published, ren ders ibem so general in their operations that they would seem to embrace the case of every person who makes more than one thousand dollaisayear by bis own labor or industry. In tbe lirst place, be decides that where a per son licensed to follow a particular business, also follows ar.otber which yields him more than one thousand dollars a year from, that source, be must take out an additional license If bis combii.ed profits are more than the sum named, but neither occupation produces one tbousand dollars, no license is required. So v ltb members of a firm wbo prosecute other business than that for which the firm has license. We do not think we could do better than to submit the following extracts from the de cision : ? ??A license, though procured by a firm, will not protect a person belonging to tbe firm and prosecuting an Independent business, nor will a license to a corporation protect its corporate members or employees. A man may be one of a firm requiring a license, one of a corporate company requiring a license, and, at the same time, a clerk of the same or of another firm or corporation, and be compelled to pay a license fee as snoh clerk. His business as employee is sepai ate lrom that of the firm or corporation so lar as concerns Aim individually. The 11. cense fee is the purchase of a personal privi. lege, or rather, perhaps, a tax on the personal employment of tbe tax-payer, and Inures to tbe benefit of no third person, whatever lp?y be tbe relation between the parties. The act regards corporationsin their legal character as artificial persons, and partnerships aa,quasi corporaiions having a legal existence separate and distinct from the individuals by the aggre gation of whom they are respectively consti tuted- Instates where the local law allows a married woman to acta# a femme sole she will be subject to the license doty if she purw sues a business which y ields the prescribed amount. Minors ill frailness incur thi liabilities for licenses as adulta. "Second. The business trade, or profession mentioned in the act is limited to sueh as no other license is required lor. Bat if a person already licensed for cme business pursues another, which yields him more than ens r+* , XI thousand dollar*, be U oblired to pay a ??par i%??rsr?fl,KS; of iUelx fields over a thousand dollars. If a pet?ou should carry on two vr?<j?*-_0ne of * taller, for instance, 8?a one of a shoemaker? or should pursue the profession of actergv man and at tfie ssule time teaofc school, from each ol which pursuits his receipt* nhotrtti not exceed one thousand dollars, lie would not be requirfd to pay a llcenae lee. For, though the licence is to the is for the basioese, and ihe business which demands it most, without aid from other sources, produce a sum in excess of that Mentioned in the statute. I> iff ?? rent varieties, or branches ol the same Mid of business, do not come within this prin ciple, and cur* on the part of tte revenue o^l nac?*ary tocbsliuguisb between wbat is, ai d wbat i* not, a kind of business different from seme otbtr kind. ' Among those persons who may be liable to take licences under this pari-zraph may be ean me rated ibe followtnr, as example*, to wit: Clergymen, teachers, farmers, ar lists, board ing house keejtera, boobkeepers, gardeners, i umry men, express men, t^mrters. truck man, bricklayers, bank tellers, presidents and cas biers of hanks, substitute brokers, painters aid blacksmiths (when not manufacturer*) persons carrying on saw-mills, clover, grist or other mills < when not manufacturer*); super intendents, managers, areata or officers of comjaiiies or corporations; tirms, companies or corporations organized for any busioeas not requiring any other license, such as railroad and insurance companies, Ac , ice. "An office held under the Federal or under & State Government is not either a business, trade or profession, in the meaning of the act. The <xn.mission which the offlaer Golds of the executive authority, or appointing power, is bis sufficient iioense." Tbe decision is somewhat obscure, we think, in regard to an Important question, what is "a t.usii ess trade or profession." Ikies tbe law apj ly to every person who attends to the bust, ress ol another, or follows a trade, or ia a-?ist f nt in a profession! One who is engaged in a business, in the popular idea, Is tbe principal person, for whese benefit the business is con ducted, aDd not his subordinates or workmen to whom he pays wages. XetMr. I>ew(s speaks of clerks and book-Beepers as coming under this bead. They are certainly not la business fur thensflvft any more than a journeyman car penter. Tbey are on ly assistants, and although the law may bear tbe strict construction pat upon it, it is very doubtful whether those who passed it imagined that It would be carried to ihe extent indicated in the decision of the Com missioner of Internal Revenue.?-Philadelphia Inquirer. From Mobile Before the Fight. Chief Engineer I?atimer, arrived from the fleet iff Mobile, reports that when he left ac tive preparations were being made for imme diate ac'lon by Admiral Farragut. He de scribes Fort Morgan as a brick structure on the Snmter plan,.and banked up as an addi tional precaution with sand, so that from the front it is considered impregnate, but that being once passed, it can readily be reduoed by an attack from the rear. Admiral Farragut having succeeded in passing tne fort we shall doubtless bear of its capitulation or evacuation in a day or two Pknracola Navy-Yard, Fla., July 27.? News in this region is of trilling importance at present, as compared to the stirring events transpiring in Virginia and that vicinity; and yet were all told that might be, much of & deeply interesting nature could be given to the public from this direction. I left tbe blockading fleet oft Mobile on yes teiday nocn. The health of the squadron was good, and all were on the qui vtve for prises. On Monday night Lieutenant Watson, of the flagship Hartford and Mr. McKinley, the Ad miral's private secretary, made a reconnots sance of the entrance of Mobile Bay in a small boat trom the flagship. Under cover of tbe darkness tbey pulled quite into the harbor, and moved about among Buchanan's fleet of three iron-clads, which lay close inside Mobile Point, with impunity. Much valuable information of the nature of tbe defences, tbe disposition of ihe Rebel iron-clads, and tbe bearing of their forts was obtained by this daring adventure. The boat returned to the fleet at its leisure, not having been discovered by the Rebels, though frequently in so clwse proximity to them as to hear conversation among their officers and men on tbe decks of their vessels. The Monitor Manhattan has arrived, and is stationed within easy range ot the Rebel forts, watching the movements of their iron-clads. The Rebels seem perfectly indifferent to her presence, cr else are averse to disclosing their weight of metaL, as they bave thus far re frained from firins a shot at her. She has also been satisfied with being let alone, and haanot troubled the enemy with her guns.
