1 THE nWAHiren OP COMMERCE. BfMitl Meeting?later ntal Taxntioa, as Pvopeted by Caagresa?ltcport ot the Boston Board of Trad# on the Nubject? Tits Certificate# of Indebtedness Issued by the Uoreramest? Keport ot tlte Harbor Defease Committee?The Next Osr. eruacat Loun, die., die. A special meeting of the Chamber of Commerce waa bald st one o'clock yesterday, Pointish Peril, Esq., iu the chair, for the purpose of taking Into consideration the report of the Hoetou Hoard of Trade on internal taxation, prspared by Messrs. E. B. Bigelow, Thomas Iamb and Charles 0. Naxro; take action ou the certificates of Indebtedness issued by the government in payment of debts dne by it to individuals l'or services rendered and supplies fhruished. The reading of the minutes of the last meeting was dispensed with, and the call of the present meeting having been read by the Secretary, Mayor OroTss said that the call of the meeting Jus' read mentioued the consideration of the internal tax bill, and as one of the signers oT that call ho would state that hs had signed it at tho request of the comtniltse of tbe Boston Board of Trade, which body bad matured plana very much better than tbe bill now before Congress. The subject of taxation had engaged his attentions me iiu, aui omy m ma proseiu, uui iu iu? r?-?. Tba bill before Congress bad not had sufficient examinettoa bom bin to enable him to speak clearly of Its prorisioas. He was satisfied, however, that the exigencies Of the present war required a very large taxation, very much beyond what they could raise within the online-y UmiU of taxation. At the extra session of Congress in August last an additional means of taxation was pressed, in tbs anape of a direct tax and a tax on incomes. Those together would not Increase the revenue of the govartinient over $25,000,000?making altogether less than $100,000,000. Ills own estimate would be $200,000,000, which would bo sufficient to pay the interest on the debt. That, in his judgment, was as fur us they could go. It waa not proper in a matter of this kind that the jicopie of the present day, whou their business was very much prostrated, should be cotnp?ilod to pay a very considerable portion or the principal. h they paid the ordinary expenses of the government he thought that was all that ought to'be required of them. Tlnm the question, how should the tax be raised beyond the nn ins already provided?namely, the duties on imports and tha direct ' laxf The tax on income was a most injudicious measure and should be abandoned. It would lead to a great deal of misrepresentation, and probably to something worse. In the next piece lie did not believe in this immediate taxation ut all. It was Ibe most improper measure ever adopted. Hut Congress had taken up the subject and end avorou to raise a fuud by which they could obtain $150,000,000. 1u order to get the additional revenue the) had iruiucd a bi.l Uut was very comprehonsU u in its plan and v<>ry complicaUd In its provisions, it occupied, ho bolievcd, over one thousand pages of foolscap. He know that one of the consequences of that bill would bo to send committee after committee and individual after individual to Congress in order to protect specific branches of business. But a more serious objection to it was this: that boittg so comprehensive in its scope and so complicated in it.s details, It would require an army of assistant collectors that would cxcoad in hunt,the large aimy now p itting dowu the rebellion. Ho therefore held that the true method or raising that mou- y?the true method of taxation in itself?was undoubtedly, to place the tax on pro * direct lax on visible property, add thai would supply tho ordinary wauu of the government. It seetucd to him that thc-ro was no means by which thoy coold reach nil classes In proportion to their I means so directly and equitably as by the plan suggested .by tho Board of Trade or B.ston, and that was by a tax upon all sales of me: chaudisc and products. In Ihi.i view of the case the consume: i would have to pay one per cent more for everything ibo.v consumed. That would produce economy and spread the tavairn jis every family in the Unitod States would have to pay its proportion. Now, in proposing tbi- o. e pur cent, tho Boston Board of Trade hod estimated the aggregate of sulci at ten thou .and millions per* annum, and tho lues at ouo hundrod and thiee millions ot dollars. By a vory close examination of these Statistics he was satisfied that tlie aggregate productions of the country were very much underestimated by the report of tho Census Bureau. One per cunt would give one hundred aud titty millions of dollars, and that, ho thought, was more than wc would require with the duty on no ports, the direct tax ation,and the tax on every artlc<e of consumption, such as tobacco, he. H- believed th_t one-ball or threequarter per cent on sal s would be ampl for the require incuts of the government. A great thing to he taken into coneid-rat ion us regurded this plan wng, that it would require but very lew officers?perhaps n t one-fifth of the number gtic hill now before Congress would require. They all knew the Inolitiee with which mouuy was collected from the cnorcmtilo rloasor, and the result would lie that there would not be lerv than forty or fifty million* ot dollars collected from that source in this city. In every view of the subject he thought this u.xaai improvement on the plau now before Congress. He hoped the subject wo-ld go to a committee of the Chamber, t<> report on it at an early day, is th-re was do time to be lost. He would suggest that s memorial be drawn up expressive of tho views ol the merchants In the matter and aunt to Congress. His proposition would be to put a specific duty ou very lew articles. Mr.CUAKf.Kn (incur suggested that when the committee should b? appointed they would also consider the subject of liuame. sud try sua do .something ahoCit the bonds of tbo Erie Ikiilroad. lie ssid thst one gonileinan hud a claim against the government of $1,000,000 in Erie bouda sad $760,000. Mr. Toojrr opposed the suggestion of Mr. Gould, on ths ground thai the matter of taxation should he doalt with by itself. lie offered an amendment to thai effect. Mr. b. B Rsooimi advocated Mr. Gould's proposition, to havs both subjects licked together. The French took that cours? in alt such matters, and found it to work well lie then enter#J into a description of bow France managed her financial matters. The mnluu, without the finance clause, was then put sad carried, and tlie following were appointed a committee to take charge of the matter Mayor Opdyke, Messrs. Gould, lambert, Griffith and Thomae. rut. cbbtimcstss oh iKnewncDNSss. Mr. Tuosas drew the attention of the Chamber to the certificate,- of indebtedness issued by tbo government to difforent individuals, and said that the holders of such certificate-, nbould. he paid interest by tbe .Secretary of tbe Treasury, as the certiorates were now sold in the market at a heavy discount. Mayor liretii was not in ravor of the Chamber taking any action ui the matter, as tlx, 10 issues were seiliog within a fraction 01 the amount they involved. Mr. Toi kst boyad such a resolution would not pass in the Chamber, at least until there was a fuller attendance. It struck him that many of those contractors bad played tha part of fcbylerks, and that they were receiving mora sympathy than they were entitled to. In fact, the I soldiers who fought" our battles were receiving less Ha did not sue Why these contractor* should gat any interact at all. They ought to be satiated wtth the principal. They were better off than (be soldiers thomae Ives, who did not get thuir pay when tlM|r might, and who get no interest whatever, ll those | contractors wars entitled to extra interest it ?ecinod to him to apply with as much forca to tha soldiers, who wars without pay for months and months. If that resolution was pa-sod by the Board ho hoped to see some member MRreducing a resolution bringing the same nrin eiple to bear on the soldiers. H? bad been mid that government paid $ioo a day for th# u?i oi ft rut re wasbtub of ft thing?ft steaming?tlial could not cam that much iu ft whole year. It Um claim against tho govurnraout was fcood for iM-incipal, and these cortlOcataK ouly servo.) oa vouchers for tliat olabn, the holder ot each tia'im could at any future limo reoovcr inter cat thereon, without any endorsement from the Chamber; and, thurelore, La hoped that it would not paa?. Mr, 1noses offered a fraamMe and resolution* in favor of the payment of InUie-t by the l ulled State* government to the holder* of cortilcal'-s, at a similar rate to thai paid on itr late loans, from the tune of aala to the is*u* of said certificates.

The aggreguto value of the domestic produce of the couutry which enters into trade is $2,000,000,000. If " to this we add tha imports?say $800,000.000?tve have " fd.ObO,000.000 as the total ?m>umi ol oxcuangablo com- . modifies. Assuming that ;ho.-e are sold to average / three and a hair ilint-a bufore they roach the consumer, .. lh" tout annual.''.mount of sales would be$10.320,000,000. g The rate of duty to be imposed on sales Would of course tj vary according to the amount required to be raised from , this source. If, however, the rate first fixed upon t should, on trial, produce too much or too liitl" revenue, the amount can be ra sed or lowered at pleasure, without ' disturbing the machinery of colloct.un. The change j, might be accomplished without the trouble and dolay of ailduioual legislation, as the act might meet future exigencies of the Treasury by providing for a change in the (( tuto, to be made known by the proclamation of the Tresident. Should a duty ou sales he adopted u3 a leading s urce of rovenue, the forms of taxation in the prssonl.biil . most likely to embarrass production, and to prove cosily am! troublesome in their collection, in ght bo dispensed* 0I with, ar.d the whole system of interna! laxatiou greatly Simplified. If the first oh,set, which is revenue, enu bo 6| made certain, ull should rojoice to he relieved fi om ai>- u prehensions which have been so generally swaheued by ^ the more obuoxious provis.ons of liio proposed act. The ,, committee also rec.'iumeud that all mleriial dues shall , be collected by the sale of government stamps, t" bo dts- g. tributcd und obtainrd through the Post Olllca DepartBiout. Two modSS of a;q>ly;ug the stamps luva beeu ?. considered?ono, wliereby a stamp should bo affixed to ?... e?ch bill of sale, such affix being necessary to jierto? t (he / title <>f the buyer to his purchase; aud the other, in h wh ich the stamps should be affixed to periodical returns i , oi the amount of bu->iu>HS done. Asa ro.-"rt toother forms of taxation than a duty on sales will be necessary to produce tho required amount of revenue, the lattor u, mode of Uoing tho stamps would doubtless be preferable ,j' to tho former, as it may be applied to the collection of all internal tax<.s, however levied, thus making tho system of col,eel.on uniform. Luder this plan -it it proposed that every person or company subject to taxes in and from under the act shall tualco periodic-41 rot urns of g, the amount or business, subject to tax, which has bo.-n c0 done by them, and shall make payment of said tax by affixing to their returns stamps of the required value. #* This mode of collecting internal reveuue by staini swill require a certain force of oxciaO officers but th i number t <?f such officers needed on this plan will ba much smaller than the plan of tho House bill; aul tho ox; ensu of co ^ lecti >n, consequently, will bo much less, it s, as iu tho House bill, a Commissioner of Internal lb-venue, , ! a division of tho country into inspection district?, and the appointment of iusiwclor* for each district.

Business of all kinds was paralyzed; mcr- j chandise could not be sold at any price; people svere unwilling to buy any paper whatever; ex- < hange was at a dead lock; stocks had been falling < itcadily for some time, and were at extremely low igures, though there was no panic, and erroneous iopes were still entertained that Virginia would idhere to the Union. The imports of March, 1861, j bowed a great falling oil' from the average in 1 general merchandise and a marked increase in the import of bullion?an unwholesome indication, i March, 1862, shows an increase of importations of general merchandise, though the aggregate is still considerably below what it would have been in time of peace; and the specie current is outward, the export being nearly $2,400,000 in excess of the import. In March, 1861, we were exporting large quantities , of breadstuff* and provisions, likewise cotton, tobacco. rice, turpentine and other Southern products: the aggregute for the month was, with one exception, the largest for the year, la March, 18G2, we were importers, not exporters, of cotton, rice, turpentine, tobacco, Ac.; yet our exports of brcadstuCTs and provisions fell but about a million and a ball Hhort of those of March, 18C1, and if we add our exports of specie they show an increase. , Had no rebellion broken out both the export and i the import figures would probably have been j nearly doubled. . j Glancing at the tables for the last nine months of the current fiscal year, we notice that our im- j ports of foreign goods are steadily on the increase, while our exports of domestic produce are steadily on the decline. The former reached their < miuimum in September, 1861. since when tbey ImvA Kaan inpraauinff pvarv month- the latter reached tbeir maximum in November taxi, since when they have been falling off evory month. There ia every reaaon to believe that thia will be I he coarse of trade for some time to come. The ountry wants foreign goods, and will have them, whatever the tariff may be, and whatever the state >f the foreign exchanges: white, on the other hand, the fair harvest piospeots in Europe, and the difflnilties which stand in the way of a revival of ] hipmenls of Southern staples, presage a steady lecline in our exports of produce. The conscluenie will be, of course, a revival of specie ahipnents on the old scale. Our shipments of coin nave been increasing steadily ever since August last. In March they did not amount to * ts much as was expected, from various lccldental causes. They will be heavier in Aprilttill heavier in May, and by midsummer will pro- t tably be as heavy as in 1857 or I860. The only i hing -.hich can prevent the revival of copious s pecie shipments to Europe is large rcmittan-os of ] money from the other side for investment in oar < lecurities. Whether this w ill occur soon enough 1 o prevent the drain is a question which admits of i tome debate. 1 The money market was very easy to day, the rate for call loans being 5 a 0 per cent, and good . mercantile paper soiling at 6 a 7. Certificates of < indebtedness are quoted f>7*? a ' Largo amounts < ure being deposited daily with the Sub-Treasurer ?t 5 ner cent interest, under the law of M.irch. i Yesterday he received over IkOO.OOO. We pre- 1 iiime that the deposit* will soon rca< h the limit ] fixed by the law, and we recommend that Congress enlarge that limit to one himdred millions of dollars, and authorize the Secretary of the Treasury to give legal tender notes for the amount in addition to those already ufloat. This will have to he don sooner or later, and Congress may an well act upon the subject now. Nothing was done in money or exchange to-day. (>old fluctuated between 101% a %, closing % b'd. The stock market continues firm, and the amount of business shows a emu II inereose. Gen. (taint's official report dissipates the lying stories which the bears had set afloat with regard to the battle of Pittsburg, and deprives them of a considerable portion of their capital in trade. Governments advanced % per cent, the coupons closing 03% bid. There is a good deal of comment in the atreet on the subject of loans on government stocks, to which we NMNi this morning. Tlie impression prevails that it is as rnoeh to the interest of the hanks themselves as to that of the government and of the pnblic that f? per rent be adopted as an oxtreire margin for loans on government*, and that, in ordinary transactions, where the borrower it otherwise responsible, a margin of 1\\ per cent ought to suffice. It would require a very overwhelming ealamlty indeed to i i?yae government sixes to fall 1v/% per cent in a day. By exacting a margin of 10 per cent on governments, the banks arc discrediting a security of >hich they are themselves the heaviest holders. Pacific Mail rose to-day to 104%, closing 104 bid. It Hcams to be understood that the bears have been cornered in this stock, and hnva psid pretty smartly for the privilege of selling it. By and by, perhaps, they will learn an eqnally useful and not less expensive lesson in Ceu ( Iral. Toledo and Kric. The general rail* \y list i f |c-cd -tc idy at about the best pr ce? of yest rdar.
