NEW YORK HERALD New York, Wednesday, February 38, 1844 5(7- H. W. Morris k our Agent for the vale of tin lleraM at Poughkeeptie. Erik Railroad?Sad Misma.vaoi.ment.?Th< new Directors of the Erie Railroad have publishec n report of the present condition of the road, and u more sad ex osition of mismanagement of affairs, has verv seldom been presented. However' regrets can be no of service. Only a fifth orsixth part of this road is fit for use, and the Directors say thai they will require seven millions more money before it can be completed to Lake Erie, 6o as to be of any value to this city. They propose that the city in its corporate capacity should lurnish three millions and the citizens a like sum. Hut we doubl vty^j much the right of the city in its corporate capacity to do any such thing. The manner in which this company disposed of the money received from the State does not furnish much guarantee that an additional amount could be well asked. In Massa chusetts all these roads are constructed by private enterprise, and then the stockholders, having an in terest in the concern, take care to guard against mis management. We believe this would be the besi system for the completion of the New York ant Kne Railroad. New York Letter Writers.?We insert in cui papei to-day, in another column, two letters writter from New York to distant parts of the countryone by Mr. N. P. Willis, published in the Nationa, Intelligencer; and the other by Mr. Jules Janir Smith, we suppose, published in the Boston Transcript, as specimens of a new description of literature which has sprung up recently in connexion with the periodical press of the country and the movements of fashion, humbug and every thing else in this city. It seems that the various leading papers, in many of the States and large cities throughout the Union, do not think their newspaper airungements complete, unless they have a New York correspon. dent," who furnishes them with the fiddle-faddle, chit-chat, and other small balderdash, which can be picked up in Broadway, at the bar-rooms, lobbies of the theatres, and other places of public resort in this Babylon. Amongst those who first attracted attention in this line was Mr. Willis ; and his letters, published in the Intelligencer, ure certainly sometimes rather amusing, and contain, amongst a great variety of other equally important matter, some ot the very best pull's of shops, bootmakers, tailors, oyster-saloons and others, ever published. We have no doubt this is a far more profitable business than writing poetry. This is not a poetic age?it is the age of puffery. Besides Mr. Willis, we notice Mr. Somebody, or Mr. Smith, in the Boston Transcript, who wrttes very good letters. Mr. Tasistro dips occasionally, it is said, into this species of literature ; but we don't know where he transmits me result 01 ins iauors in mm line. Some of these letters, like those we give today, are rather amusing and good-natured; hut others are very spiteful and splenetic; and, amongst this latter class, we observe the correspondent ol the Charleeton Mercury, who contrives to compress into his ignorant little paragraphs as much folly, malignity and falsehood as any man could reasonably do in the same small space. There is, however, one exception to this description of / iterat curs who ought to be mentioned. We allude to Mrs. Maria Child, of this city. Iler letters, published in the Boston Courier, take a much wider range than those of any of her fellow-laborers. They are filled with tragedy, sentiment, philosophy, poetry, philanthrophy, eloquence, and every thing else ot the higher order of mind and thought. The manner in which she dressed up Olc Bull and Ame lia Norman was equal to any thing we have read in German metaphysics or German poetry, and we doubt whether Goethe himself could have surpassed heron these subjects. She is the very Pythoness of Broadway literature?an matured goddess? and as far surpasses the others as tue Venus de Medicis does a sickly modern boarding-school miss. Progress of tiik Foreign News at the South. We have heard from the south of the progress of the recent foreign news towards the Ciulf of Mexico, and the effect thereof in the different markets.? The advices by each packet followed on in rapid succession like the waves ol the ocean?the last swallowing up all others. First went the news by the Montezuma; that had reached New Orleans. Then followed that by the Republic and the floscius, which had been received in Mobile. Then the Kuro|ie's news, and then the big wave of all, that by the Ilibernia.? This last arrived in Charleston on the 23d ult. and annexed is the effect it produced .? [Krom the Charleston Mercury, Feb. 34.] Later vro.m Errnuiui?Cottos.?The Mail yesterday brought, in a neconil edition of the New York Herald of Tuesday, the arrival of the Hibernia at Boston with dates from Liverpool to the 4th inxt. No foreign letters came through and the hurried selectionsof a newspaper could not ofc.ourre he made the aale basis of transaction*. The news therefore produced more of conversation, conjecture and flutter, than ol business; hut its ufl'ect when we get full accounts, cannot fail to he considerable. The sales oi cotton during three weeks before the departure o: the Hibernia had amounted to near '160,000 hales, ant though this was principally en speculation, it appearthat the manufacturers too had shared in the excitement and purchased considerblv beyond their weekly con sumption The stock of American cotton in Liverpool was reduced to within about 100,000 hales of what it was last year. It will he a grave matter to holders on this side to determine what they shall now do We cannot but consider the further accumulation of the crop in our ports as to some extent hazardous. At present a general disposition to ship, would probably be attended with an immediate rise in freights, and the longer the accumulation goes on the greater will he the rise at last. And not withstanding the acknowledged shortness of this crop, there is eveu now danger of its pressing on the next, tc the injury of the planting, as well ax the commercial in terest. On every account it seems to us that present pri ces should he sustained, and the crop allowed to go for ward. All these advices, which were most important it their character, were sent over the entire south ex clusively from this office. No other papers witl the news by either ship had been received in anj of the southern cities. This fact will be taken int< consideration by every merchant in the country. Libel Suit.?John Jones, the Bitton Maker ?When this journal a few weeks ago made a po lice report ol the case of Catharine Costello, Johr Jones, the button-maker, by advice and counsel o his lawyer, commenced a libel suit against us anf several of our contemporaries, with great fierce ness.l as if he was going to swallow us all up Finding, however, that it wan a ioolish step, ant that he had caught a Tartar in Catharine, his law yereame to our office, and offered to withdraw thi libel suit upon paying him $8?we believe it was This we refused to do ; and the result has been thn John, who has now fairly got his neck into th< kaan nrtrttl I nt n( n VlPAtttlv nfTon/iu uuogr, anu i/ccii wwm?*v?v? ? ? - ; ~..v?v,v and will be punished therefor, has sent by the hand of his lawyer, the following notice of discor tinuance of the suit:? Si rrnioK Court?John Jon ft vi. Jnmn O. J}fnnKI.Sir? Pleaae take notice that a rule hai been entered disc.m tinning thin *nit, and the aa.-ne is accordingly diacontini ed. Yours, Itc , ROBKRT If LLOYD, Attorney for Plaintiff. To B Oai.rraith. K?i> , Att'ny. Defdt. February 2tt, l?44. Now, it is very probable, that if John Jones i this bad business had taken better advice than thi which instigated him to commence libel sun against the whole of the newspapers for a simpl police report, he might have escaped. The obsci nty of his name might have saved him ; but bein determined to make a great man of himself, h raised up friends for this unfortunate girl, wh ascertained the revolting nature of his offence, an assisted in bringing him to justice. This shotil be a lesson to all John Joneses and to all butto makers, to be careful how they are advised b lawyers of any kind. It is much easier for lawyei to get men into difficulties than to get them out r them. A single particle of common sense is ofte of more ine*timable value than all the law in twent tomes, lettered and bound in calf. FonKifiv Mails?The letter bags of the Ilibei nis, which leaves Boston on Friday, will close n this citv at 31 o'clock to-morrow afternoon MaacANTii.e Library Association.?Last even ing the Rev. Dr. Channing?one of the chiet apos. ties of the Fourier revelation?gave a lecture before the Mercantile Library Association on "Pauperis ism " Dr. Channing is a very eloquent speaker on the new and transcendental system of philosophy. . Occasionally he is very visionary, but when facts I become the substratum oi his thoughts, he is often | sound, judicious, and eloquent. The selection of . his topic last evening was, however, more a matter of imagination than anything else. "Pauper'srn" in the United States is in some degree a poetic condition of lite. With the exception of the large cities, we believe pauperism is almost unknown in this country; and even in the large cities, wherever it exists to any extent, it is produced by indiscretion,'folly, and drunkenness. In Europe, pauperism is altogether a different thing. It is there a sad and solemn fact, coexistent with the system of society, and never to be eradicated but by a complete revolution in the framework of the social fabric. However, on this topic, Dr. Channing, at all events, was very eloquent, very transcendental, and somewhat Fourierite. This was, we believe, the closing lecture of the Mercantile Library Association for this season, t Thus far this institution, which formerly was so 1 flourishing, appears ;o have fallen into the "sere and yellow leaf." We perceive that in consequence of the great diminution of the regular members, r they have been forced, in order to meet their ex1 pauses, to throw the reading room open, and turn the library into a common subscription one at $5 ' a year. This mu9t soon terminate ths existence 1 of the institution. The chief causes of its decline, ' we believe, have been bad management for the lust few years, and the promulgation of visionary and dangerous doctrines by many of its lecturers. It appears to be in the hands chiefly of a set of trunscendentalists, Fourierites, and Materialists, who j are floating about on the wide oceun of thought and 1 opinion, without chart or compass, and ignorant of ' what port is going to bring them up either here or hereafter. Sorry are we that it i9 so. Eternal, Universal, and Everlasting Philosophy.?The celebrated Professor Bronson intends to deliver a new course of lectures, which will knock the transcendentalists, Fourierites, and charlatan philosophers of all complexions into u | three-cornered hat. The Professor proposes? " To show by the c ley re it analysis and logical induetinn, the absolute and necessary connexion between , > things natural, spiritual and celestial, in successive order , especially the great truth, that man is a microcosm, 1 or epitome of the world-universal. Man is therefore con- 1 tudered in his physiological, individual, social civil, mo- 1 i ill, inteliectu.il and religious character ; his fall and re storatiou will be explained according to spiritual-natural science, ami in strict conformity to the word of God. In , this analysis, sectarianism in all its shades and varieties, will pass as through a winnowing process, and the falses and evils he separated from the good and the true whether of popery, or protestantism in all its ramifications into tripersonalism, unitarianism, and universalism ; while the philosophy and science of the universal trine.or | true trinity, will lie demonstrated in the natural, intellectual, and celestial things of creation ; to that faith and 1 science may go hand in hand, as they ought." I This sounds like good philosophy?clear, attrac. | live, and inviting. The Professor is bound to go ahead. Revival of Business in Ohio.?We perceive by the reports made to the Ohio Legislature that the Penitentiary of that respectable State has cleared #10,000 during the past year. This is ?ne of the I best possible evidences of the revival of business | in that State, and also of the marked amendment of moralsin a portion of the community. We believe this is more actual profits made on honest principles, than all the banks in that State for years past have been able to realise, and we do think that, contrasted with them, the State Penitentiary of Ohio is immeasurably superior in point of morals, worth and respectability. We have observed that in those States where the Penitentiaries pay their debts and afford a surplus, repudiation is generally scouted; and we therefore not unreasonably conclude, that Ohio means to adhere to honest principles hereafter.? When a people and a Legislature and a State have introduced such a system as enables the respectable characters in thei- Penitentiary to pay their debts and afford a surplus, we have certainly reason to expect that the State itself will pay its debts nnd have a surplus. Fulton-street the Gkeat Centre of Business ?Fulton street has within the last year or two become the grand centre of active business in NewYork. This is readily explained by reference to its locality. It bisects the city about the centre of its business portion, and constitutes the grand thoroughfare from Brooklyn, Long Island, the East River, on the one hand, and New Jersey and the North River on the other. It is crossed at nearly eijui-distant points by Broadway, Nassau, Pearl, and Greenwich streets. In the very centre of this bustling thoroughfare our immense establishment is located. Here news is daily received from and transmitted to all parts of the world ; and from tliis point, as from the great nervous centres in the human body, tone, energy and life seem to be communicated to the most distant extremities of , the Union. i Cheat Excitement in tiie Millineuy Line.? 1 The patronage of Madame Damoreau, and now of . Md'lle Borghese, extended to the new French modiste, Mad. Le Brun, has created a good deal of a sensation in fashionable society, in relation to dress-making and the philosophy of costume. Heretofore the great modiste of New York was Mad. Lc Fevre, who was first brought into notice by Fanny Elssler, and has ever since been the reigning empress, until the appearance of this new \ female conqueror, Mad. Le Brun, recently from Paris, and who now threatens to usurp the throne. ' She intends opening a magnificent establishment near Broadway on the first of May next, which will surpass even the celebrated Victorine's orCammille's, in Paris. The critics in dress already begin to investigate the relative merits ot Le Brun and Le Fevre. Some say that the one is a Victorine and the other a Camille? that Le Fevre has the most genius, and . Le Brun the most taste?that Le Fevre gives the . mos. poetic air to her ligures, but Le Brun the t most classical. The great contest, however, will f not commence until the first of May, and then I there will indeed be a struggle tor the empire of the fashionable world. i P?i.vn's Complimentary Benefit.?We under stand that the friends of Signor J'alnto intend to get up a complimentary benefit for him next Thursday week. This is nothing but what the enterprise, tact, und liberality of this little Napoleon deserve. He has brought into being, after a great many fruitless efforts by his predecessors, an opera and an opera house, which bid fair to be permanent . in New York, and in the process of time to lay the foundation of a new movement in fashionable so piety lie has done this at vast expense?a great J; deal of l.tbor?and amidst the most overwhelming discouragement. The present engagement with this company, although the house is crowded every night, turns out not so profitably to him as some n may suppose, tor they get the lion's share of the it proceeds. Hut the public, and particularly the ^ fashionable public, is so gratified by his enterprize and liberality, that we believe they will give him one of the most thumping complimentary benefits * ever given to any mnnager in New York?and not complimentary merely, hut substantial. We trust ' the preparations will he immediately made. jj Ci.ay I3au.s?Dancing and Singing Campaign.? Clay balls are the rage all over the country. Wc have had several of them in this city, and the ^ bright eyes of the women have been enkindling a ^ terrible enthusiasm for Harry of the West. At ! their public meetings, ulso, songs are introduced : with great effect. It seems, indeed, that the Clay men have monopolized all the spunk, and spirit and I gaiety, and unless the locofocos wake up, and bej gin the dancing anil singing excitement, the wliigs 11 1 will have danced to victory before their antagonists I are aware m^mmrnrnrn Latest from South America.?We have received advices, but no papers, from Rio ta the 31st of December. The Monster Paul and Herr Cline were performing at Rio up to the last accounts. There were a great many American vessels in port, and freight very low. Our correspondent gives the naval news:? U. S. Ship Savannah, ) Rio Janeiro, Dec. 19,1913. J We came to anchor about two hours ago, and found here the IJ. S. ship Columbia, Captain Chetard. We have had an awful time in getting here; only sixty days from New York. On or near the Equator we were becalmed some twenty days, and rain ing all the time?indeed we have had u head wind almost ever since we left your city. As I intend writing you frequently during the cruise, I think it will not be out of place to introduce you to my shipmates.

That tall red whiskered gentleman that is addressing our loquacious Surgeon^ is the fifth lieutenant, lute of the grand Exploring Expedition. He is decidedly one of the best sailors r?n board, and there are few better ones in the navy, Sec. See. A brig arrived here this forenoon, 57 days from Boston. The Levant, Commander Page, was 80 days from Norfolk. She sailed on the26tn of last month for the Pacific. The Columbus is at the river; the John Adams has gone down there also. We sail as soon as we can fill ui>, for the Pacific ? Our ship is very fast, and one of the very best sea boats that I have ever sailed in. We had a great deal of trouble in getting thingsfor her while in New York. She is worse found than any ship that has gone to sea before or since the war. The 9-15,000 lhat was appropriated for her was expended,$15,000 upon the isomers and the remainder upon the Missouri. Again, not a single officer that was ordered to her applied to get off, though she whs going to one of the most unpleasant stations, and she got sff sooner than ship ever did since the war, and with as little fuss. Dec 20?The Warren, Comd. Hull, arrived here yesterday; she sailed from Norfolk, Vir., on the 19th Oct She experienced heavy weather north t>f the line. Them Pigeons?Have they any connection with the American Museum 1 Yesterday afternoon, about the hour of the drawing of the Jersey lotte ry, we ouservea a group 01 individuals, wun spyglasses in hand, on its top, as intently engaged as though they were striving t? get a peep into fu'urity ; when suddenly stopping, they made seven upward and downward motions with their hands, which reversing, were succeeded by two of a similar character. A Millerite would have connected these men and their evolutions with the discovery of signs showing the coming of the end, as the number seven corresponded with the typicul horns of the prophetic bea6t, had it not been for the succeeding twoj; but a knowing lottery vender translated them into 72, which afterwards prov.-d to he the first drawn nttmhff in the lottery. Did them pigeons assist in spreading " the news 1" Rah. Road Fares from New York to Phii.adei.phia.?This railroad is owned by three companies, ea?h acting under different charters.

Yet, we believe, by law, they are only entitled to $2 75. Would the Legislature of New Jersey and that of Pennsylvania, inquire the reason of the extra charge of #1 251 Would the public generally inquite 1 New York Vocai. Society.?It has long been a matter of regret that so many fine compositions for h combination of vocal voices should remain unknown to the lovers of music in New York; a Society has therefore been formed, consisting of resident professional vocalists, with the intention, by unremitting practice, to be enabled to place before the public, vocal music, in a manner hitherto unattempted. The society embraces many of our most celebrated vocalists, and has'already given, we believe, two concerts, with distiagushed success. The next concert will be given in Washington Hall, on Thursday evening, and great attraction is offered on the occasion. Plain field Currency.?A few days ago, the agent for this concern sent five kegs of small specie to Flainfield, to meet the demands of the public. The brokers in Wall street will exhaust this in half an hour. The agent here has, however, a large quantity of the precious metals on hand, to redeem here, principally in the shape of severul old double cylinder printing presses?a st^am engine?a quantity of old type?and a large lot of old stove pipereal specie of the Plainfield order. Mkktinci of the Grand Jury.?The Grand Jury of the Court of Sessions meet, we believe, next Monday. The selection of this body is very important. It ought to consist of the most influential and respectable men in the community, for we believe that some very important investigations will come before it, in relation to the monied incorporations, which have ruined so many of our citizens, and disgraced the country.

Police.?'Tuesday, Feb. 46- -Koaeuvo A Bi.ri.rtaOn Monday evening Captain Joshua Bennett, of the achooner Thorne, now at the foot oi Hammond afreet, entered a porter houae kept by a man named Montgomery, at 309 Water street, in a state of partial intoxication, and continued to ply himself with liquor and treat the company, until he was excessively intoxicated. During the time he was seen by James Hopkins,who was iu the bar room, to exhibit a large sum ol money, amounting to about }300 in bank notes. Alter night, he retired tO|bed, und,according to the statement of Hopkins, a coasting sailor named Forman J. Gilford, soon after want up stairs also. In a few minues Hopkins followed and says he found Oifiord iu his stocking feet in the room whete Bennett was asleep, who appeared startled, and said he was looking after u pair of slippers. Gilford then went to ills own room, which is occupied by himself and Hopkins, and the latter returned to the bar room. Suspecting that all was not right, hujwent up again in a few minutes afterwards and liiund Clifford in the act of leaving the room iu which Bennett waa still asleep. Soon after Gilford came down stairs, and went out. In the meantime it was ascertained that all the money had been taken from the l<ockets of Bennett, and when Gilford returned, shortly after, he was charged with stealing the money. This he denied, and offered to be searched, and then went with Montgomery to the watch house, where he delivered himself up. He stands committed for examination. A Ilt'RRi.sR corrcKAiED.?On Monday night, watch man W. N. Holmes, while passing the grocery store of Henry P.

He followed the track of the rogue and urrested him, when he gave his name as John Moore. Moore stated, in his examination before Justice Parker, that ho casually walked into the store before it wns closed in the evening, got fd9t asleep among some barrels, where he had quietly laid down, and when he awakened, not knowing where he was he struck alight totind his way out of the store,|when the watchman thus unceremoniously pouueed upon liim The Justice could scarcely swallow all this for truth; and as John could not explain what prompted him to break the panel of tke window, he was fully committed to explain it to a jury of his country. A Dctcii Receiver Asrested.?The houso of John T. Shultz, of 03 Kosevelt street, has heen under the observation of olticers Smith and Welch for some months past, on .suspicion of being a place of resort lor the selling of stolen goods. On the 30th of December, on elegant ladies' gold watch valued at $S0, was stolen from the house of Samuel House, IS Cliff street, and subsequently a colored boy, named Daniel Jones, was arrested on suspicion of the theft, and confessed that he had sold the watch to Shultz.

Tuesday, Feb. 27.?In Iht Cait of John F. Peck? His Honor was engaged a considerable portion of to-day, examining into the case of John K. Peck, son of Curtis Peck, who was arrested some time ago, and committed to the Tombs, in default of bail, on three criminal charges ; but who was subsequently transferred to the Lunatic Asylum, at Bloomingdale, by a precept given by the Recorder and Justice Stevens of the Lower Police ofttce. The circumstances areas follows : on or about the 17th ult, this unfortunate young man, was brought before Justice Taylor, of thu Upper Police office, charged with having uttered and passed to Benjeman K. Starr,a forged draft for $25.purporting to be the draft of his father, Curtis Peck?with nav. ing obtained, by false pretences, from Samuel I) Rockwell, a gold watch, chain and seal, valued at $100 ; also, from Oliver Ketchem, the sum of $5, by false pretences.? Justice Taylor upon these charges committed the accused to the city prison on the l!)th inst, in default of hail in the sum of $10<>0. On the 20th, it uppears that the city prison Physician was called in to see the accused, who it was thought exhibited strong symptoms of lunacr. Dr. Rogers was also summoned to the consultation, anil on their certificate, a discharge wus granted by the Recorder and Justice Stevens, and Tie was transferred to the charge of Dr. Wilson of the Bloomingdale Asylum. As soon as tidings of this proceeding came to the ears of Justice Taylor? whr is ever ready and prompt to discharge his duty as a mngistrade?he sued out a writ of habeas corpus, returnable before the Mayor this afternoon, and gavo notice to the parties interested that the transfer was illegal and he was pre pared to dispute it. Accordingly Mr. Loverige attended as counsel on behalf of the Iriends of the accused?Dr. wiisMpurnmng wnu nn cnargc. JuAJee Tavlor having proved the regularity oi the commitment, proceeded to state why the accused should be remanded to the prison, out of the custody ol the officers of the asylum. He contended that under the 3-2d section of the act of incorporation of the State Lunatic Asylum passed in session, 1842, the proper magistrate to take cognizance of cases of lunacy, occurring with persons charged with criminal offences, was the 1st Judge of the county, (Judge Ulshoefler) who was empowered to hold a fnll and complete examination, to summon jurors to try the case, to compel the attendance of witnesses, and if the charge oflunacy was established, to discharge the lunatic from prison, and surrender him into the care of thr State Lunatic Asylum, specifying in the precept that chsrares ol a criminal nature were existing against the lunatic, so that upon his ivwtvly uuUCC nilKhl In- gtvsni tu 'theauthorities, and he should bo re-committed to answer The Recorder and Justice Stevens had no power to dispose ot the lunatic, and that the wholepfoceeding was ir regular. Mr. Lr.TKHinoc in reply, contended that the 1.8th sec tion of the act referred to, which provides that notice shall he filed with the Clerk of the county, that the asylum is ready to receive lunatics, had not haen complied within the county, and consequently that act was inoperative, and tho Revised Statutes must prevail, until such provisions shall have been complied with. By these sta tutes it is in the power of two magistrates to commit tc any asylum adopted by the Supervisors of the county.? This body had adopted three, viz : the Bloomingdale, Dr McDonald's?and the asylum on Blackwell's Island. Th< two magistrates had adopted the Bloomingdale Asylum ir th s case, and the commitment was perfectly in accord ance with the law. The Mayor decided that the Recorder and Justice Ste vens had no authority to transfer the accused to the asy lum. He therefore discharged the accused from tho care of Dr. Wilson, and recommitted him to the city prison. Decision* In ChancerjrBy the Vice Chancellor. TunsD.iv, Feb. 27.?Montague fVard, vt.

The exports have not been so limited since 1839, as they are this year, ootton has been shipped to the north part of this country for speculative purposes. Advances having been obtained in this city, at a small margin, speculators at (he South preferred sending it here than to Europe. Speculators in this city were induced to advance on as much as possible held at the South to prevent its being shipped to Liverpool, and creating a decline in that market. Sometime since we stated that the Committee of Ways and Means in thp lower house of the Pennsylvania Legislature, would soon report a bill for the purpose of raising a revenue to pay the interest on the public debt. The bill as presented does not materially differ from what we then represented. It is called "An act to Recure the revenue of the State, and to redeem the publio faith." The principal points in it arc distinctly stated to be for that purpose. The 1st section names the species of property subject to taxation, which comprises nearly all the personal and real estate, investments, lie. "* Section 2nd taxes all shares in banks, and other incorporated institutions. Section 4th provides for an equal assessment of taxes, by the apjiointment of seven commissioners, to meet at Harrisburg, within 90 days from the passage of the act, to proceed to ascertain and determine the fair and just valuation of the property in thi- several counties made taxable by law, so as to make all taxes bear as equally as practica. ble upon all the citizens of tho Commonwealth. Section Sth stipulates that the County Treasurers shall nav over the taxes collected semi-annually, viz.: fifteen days before the 1st of February and the 1st of August in each and every year, to tho Stato Treasurer. The amount remaining unpaid, after deducting such commissions as are or shall be allowed by law for the collection of the same, shell be charged against the county or counties delinquent, and shall bear an interest of six per cent till paid. Section 14th we give as reported in the bill, as it provides for a certain class of creditors, in preference to all others s? "It shall be lawful for any person, or persons, or bodies corporate, whose claims am ennmerateu in this section, on delivering up of any certificates or other ?vidence of indebtedness of the State held by them, to receive for the amount ol their respective claims certificates of stock as hereinafter provided, and the Governor is hereby authorized and required on the application ol' such person or persons, or bodies corporate, to cause certificates of stock transferrnble on the books of the Auditor General to be issued as aforesaid, which certificates shall be signed by the Auditor General, and countersigned by the Slate Treasurer, and bear an interest of per centum .per annum, payable half-yearly, and redeemable on the first day of March, 1349, or sooner, at the pleasure of the Legislature, viz : for certificates issued by the commonwealth, for interest due on the Duhlic debt, now due and payable for en pmpriations, and balances of appropriations, unpaid on the first dav of December, 1843, not exceeding one hundred and twenty-nine thousand dollars, fcr c?rti6c*V-s "1 domestic creditors not exceeding two hundred Kd4 six thousand dollars, for payment of fifty-six thsuMBd and twenty-two dollars, the balance 01 a loan due the Aral of June, 1841, and for. a loan of sixty-two thousand flvelmndrrd dollars, negotiated the seventh of December, 1833, und due May 1st, 1841." Section 13th levies a tax offone dollar on every hundred clear value of estate, real, personal, or mixed, of any kind whatever, of any person who may die, provided the estate is valued ovur Ave hundred dollars. Section 16th makes it the duty ol the registers for the probate of wills, and granting letters of administration, to see that the conditions of the 14th section are carried into effect according to law. Section 18th states that the total amount of the revenue raised, and to be raised under the provisions of this act, and the acts of June 11th, 1840, and July 37th, 18-13, are to be appropriated to the payment of the interest on the public debt, and no part of the same snail be used for any other purpose until said interest shall have been paid in full. I This last section is the most pointed of th? whole eighteen. Its provisions are just and proper. The rave' nue from this bill will meet the annual interest on the I total public debt. Great dissatisfaction has for a long time existed in all pans 01 rennsyivniim, in tuuKcqucubc ui the unequal mode of taxation. Not mnre than two-thirds the taxes levied have hecn collected on this account. This objection is guarded against in the proposed bill, by causing the county commissioners of the several counties to make a valuation and assessment of all taxable property in their respective counties, and return the same to the State I Treasurer, to be laid before the seven commissioneis . appointed under the 4th section, for their revision and i decision. Inequality of taxation, under any form of ' government, creates trouble and dangsr. AVhen the ' burden falls on all according to their ability, the require- * ments of the law are cheerfully submitted to. Difficulties have heretofore existed, that have now been obviated, and judging from present movements, we should think the Legislature of Pennsylvania did not intend adjotimingt > sine die, without some assurance to their creditors h '4 jig their claims were not wholly forgotten. Still lie/ i.tvSP ' 1 n great load to carry, and merely passing nets ttrro h th V wr Li-gislatnre, will not instantly wipe oiit the r?p' .iLfl||ajr e principles that still exist in the minds of many.
