if AILY PRESS. PORTLAND. Thursday Morning, December 27, 1866. The Maine Niale Prf«»» Published this morning, contains Mr. Fes senden's remarks in the C* S. Senate on the condition of the Southern States; Gen. How ard’s defence of the Freedmen's Bureau against the charges of Generals Steedman and Fullerton; an interesting description of the birthplace of Benjamin West; communica tions Irom -‘Traxi” and others; together with ilie usual variety of foreign and domestic | news; tire shipping news for the week; mar ket reports, <Sc., &c., not forgetting Mr. Nas oy’s last letter and other miscellaneous ar ticles. Itelief IVuin Taxation. Some of the Western newspapers have been rather obstreperously complaining of the tax on advertisements, and calling for its abroga tion. We are not anxious for a continuance of that tax, but we have not felt that the ex emption of any single interest could fairly be mged at the expense of others. The experi ence of the last year, however, has demon strated that a considerable diminution ol' taxes is entirely compatible with the sure and reasonably speedy payment of the public debt. We have paid a national tax of $300,000,000 during the year, and it cannot be denied that on many branches of industry, the taxes now levied are excessive. This was to be expect ed. A system of internal levenue, organized on so extensive a scale, could not fail to bear hardly on some interests. There is need, therefore, of a general and special revision of the internal revenue laws—of a general dimi nution of the burden, and of special relief for special industries. If newspapers derive some benefit from the general reduction of taxes, we shall be well satisfied. There seems to be a satisfactory harmony of opinion with regard to the general policy to be pursued in this respect. “A farther dim inution of internal taxes and a modification of the tariff,” says Secretary McCulloch, “will oe required, in order that production may be increased.'1 Commissioner Wells declared in bis preliminary report, that he was unhesi tatingly prepared to recommend “such a re vision oi tue present internal revenue system as trill look to an entire exemption of the manufacturing industry of the United States from all direct taxation—distilled and fer mented liquors, tobacco, and possibly a few other articles excepted.” In the same spirit, we observe, the Housu of Representatives has adopted a resolution instructing the com mittee of ways and means “to inquire into tire expediency of abolishing the five per cent, internal revenue tax on manufactures and the products of mechanical skill.” We trust the policy indicated by this reso lution will be adopted. Here at least, pro tectionists and tree traders can agree. It is plain that our manufacturing interests are iufiering; the proposed mode of relief is obvi ' ous and unobjectionable. Let us compete with England by making our own goods cheaper and nobody will complain. If the example of England is worth anything, it should be considered, too, that she has no such impost as this, her uniform policy being to cheapen the production of her wares in every way possible. If she can carry her debt with out it, so certainly can we carry ours. Wanted—a market. The oil wells of Canada are now capable of producing about 500,000 barrels of petroleum annually and new wells are still goiDg down. The only demand as yet is for home consump tion. The sales at Petrolia and Bothwell during the year ending Sept. 1,1860, amount ed to 77.000 barrels.- The entire demand ior < anadian consumption cannot exceed 150,000 barrels, or 50 per cent, of the entire product of the wells now in operation. None of them are working to their full capacity, under these discouraging circumstances, and the prospect is that many will be obliged to suspend alto gether. It cannot be that a valuable product, for which there is a sure and steady uiaikel in Europe, will long bo kept out of that market. The Bothwell oil yields 75, the Petrolia oil 66 2-;i and the Pennsylvania oil only 60 per rent, ot refined oil. It is furthermore claim ed that the Canadian illuminating oil will last one filth longer than the Pennsylvania article. These advantages must ultimately tell in its favor. In addition to its uses for illumination and lubrication, the opinion prevails in some quarters that it will become available as an article of food. This, we are told, is the opin ion of Prof. Brackett of Bowdoin College, and if the theory is coirect, that the oil is deri red I'vnm on A.mmwoun ..LaII fir.L i«. tn not perhaps so improbable as would at first appear that petroleum may contain nutri ment. The demand tor established uses how ever is active enough to ensure a movement sooner or later. The oil is wanted and will not be allowed to remain in Canada. One cargo of crude oil was sent abroad a lew years ago. It was the first attempt to es tablish a foreign trade, and has not been fol lowed up. Prices have dwindled to §2 50 or $3 at Bothwell and $125 to $175 at Petrolia in gold. A steady demand at a barrel in Bothwell and $2 or >>2 25 in Petrolia would set all the pumps-at work. Such a demand is sure to make itself felt, sooner or later. The St. Lawrence will not afford an outlet for this new trade. It must pass through New York or. Portland, and Portland merchants ought to be on the lookout for it. The crude oil would probably be hrou ,ht in iron tanks to thi3 city. It would then be transferred to casks for shipment. This business would nat rnaliy tall to us here, and ought by all means, when the time comes, to he secured lor Portland. An Iiagrnious Puzzle. If the Star would drop its conjuror’s tricks, stop biting its own head off in public and in fil ing charges against the Press take reasonable precautions to see that they are consistent with each other, it would perhaps be as well. But the public must be amused. Look at this: AVe complained that a communication iu the Press was an act of gross injustice to General tfhepley and other honorable and worthy men, and we did “’suggest a responsibility’’; and since the Press has utterly refused to disown or explain it, we take it as a virtual endorse ment of that article, and a consistent part of a whole studied plan of ignoring all men and ail things riot in the list of the idois of its worship. It is true an editor is not personally responsi ble for opinions expressed in communications, but when injustice is done, and when outside and personal matter enters into them, we sub mit that the general rule of propriety and truthfulness demands a different course lrom that pursued by the Press ^ The Press is responsible for giving eurency ‘ a a covert manner to an idea that such a man as CTeneral Shepley was not to be trusted as a Law officer; for it ought to have said that it • supported Mr. Webb, for being avowedly what General Shepley is assumed to be, and Mr Peters, too, for that matter. And more than this it should notallow anybody to assume that this is a legitimate issue by the party. We merely repeat that this is only the old story of allowing and encouraging an unfriendly course of conduct towards those who have incurred the displeasure of the Court where other inter ests wait aud worship Iu the opinion cf the Star it appears that the Press by refusing to disown an article which it never owned has endorsed it, just as a man by retusing to erase his signature from a note which he never signed, would become its en dorser; that this very peculiar endorsement is part of a studied plan of ignoring certain men and things, which process of ignoring involves personality, as if one could ignore a man by calling him hard names; that an editor is not responsible for opinions expressed in communications but that the Press is responsible for the opinions expressed in a certain communication; anil that this responsibility was incurred by giving currency to that communication, in a covert manner by publishing it so that every body could rea l it. Here are tour flat contra diction's in just lour sentences. The other two inform u . that we ought -not to-“allow” people to hold and express tlielr own opinions. As this last is the only point whicn the Star has not obligingly answered for us, we shall consider this aloue. I'ulik" the Star we be- | Ueve that people should be “allowed” to as- j sume anything they choose. We believe a ; newspaper does not perform its full duty to the i community unless its columns are open to sug gestions from all quarters. The first question respecting a communication touching any matter wliicli has been editorially discussed in the Press, is invariably, whether the article agrees or disagrees with the views advocated by the Press. If it dissents from those views, that fact secures its insertion. What we chief ly des ire is to know all that can be said on the other side. If our opinions cannot stand the test of discussion, so much the worse for the opinions; let them go down as they deserve. We havo published lately communications from New Orleans denying that Northerners are ill received there, from advocates of the im peachment of the President, and troin persons who hold that none but Protectionists should receive Republican votes. From the views of these writers we respectfully dissent, but they have a right to be heard. With reference to the distribution of State offices, we have expressed no preference. If a man plainly unfit for any office were put for ward as a candidate, we should certainly op pose turn. Good and capable public servants we want. The candidates for the several offices are none of them, so far as we know, objection able. Our corresp indent “E.” does not agree with us. He regards it as an objection to Gen eral Shepley’s election as Attorney General, that he is not a believer in the Maine law. It seems to us that Gen. Shepley, having just been elected to the legislature by the Republi cans of Portland, is not in any immediate dan ger of being ruled out of- the party. Ii any body thinks he is, the columns of the Press arc open for the freest discussion o/ the propriety of the thing. It is perfectly proper that the political opinions of any candidate for office should be canvassed. The Maine law is a part of our politics. “E.” had a perfect and indis putable right to write about Gen. Shepley’s opinions on this subject, if he chose, and the Star simply misuses the English language when itcalls such writing “personal.” In per sonality—by which we understand criticism not of a man’s public acts and political opin ions but ot his private life—the Press does not deal. In respect for Gen. Shepley’s public ser vices and professional attainments we yield to uu mau. v* e ueuevu uiox ue, nice won. t aam berlaiu, will find that his noisiest are not al ways his best triends. The Star accuses the Press of “gross injus tice,” and of conduct inconsistent with “the general rule of propriety and truthfulness."— This language is totally unjustified by the cir cumstances. We prefer to believe it was used without a full sense of its meaning. In anoth er passage we find the statement, that owing to the “frequent, persistent and indiscreet men tion” of one of the candidates for the guberna torial nomination last summer, “he felt called upon to write a note to the Press, and beg, as they loved him, they would refrain from furth er use of his name.” This is a silly lie, with which somebody has imposed upon the Star. Unless our neighbor is willing to give currency to a declared falsehood, —and we do not believe he is—he will correct that error. The Kailuoaus again.—The Augusta cor respondent of the Boston Advertiser writes to that paper as follows: One of the questions most likely to engross the attention of our legislature, soon to meet, has been several times alluded to in this correspondence,—a proposed act to enable the railroads east of Portland to consolidate into one large company. These railroads embrace the Maine Central, the Portland and Kenne bec, the Somerset and Kennebec, and the An droscoggiu companies, with well nigh three huudred miles ol' track, and with a consolidat ed capital of several millions. The scheme will meet with vigorous opposition this year, as it did last; and yet our shrewdest business men regard it as advantageous to the State of Maine, taken uji as a whole—securiug the most economical administration of the railroad in terest, yielding the largest profit to the com munities and individuals who own it, and es pecially enabling us to dictate terms to the Boston roads, instead of being dictated by them as has been the case in past years. Tbe steady improvement in the finances of the Maine Central and the Portland and Kenne bec insures a very strong corporation if the consolidation takes place, and the Androscog gin, which of itself is not a strong road, has powerful aHd peculiar inducements for unit ing its fortunes with either of the other roads, and overwhelming reasons lor uniting with both. Probably the greatest gainer by the consol idation would be Portland, as it would render that city emphatically the head, limbs, and body of the railroad interest in Maine. Ban gor warmly favors it, because the consolidated corporation would be able to extend great aid in building the road to the Aroostook region and the lower Provinces. Generally when Portland and Bangor are united they can car ry any ineasuae they favor and lichee the probability of the consolidation scheme being adopted by the legislature — The points from which the most vigorous oppo sition! may be anticipated are Lewiston and Waterville, which, having now the advai.tage arising from the competition of two roads on freight and passengeis, are loath to see what they denounce as a giant monopoly thrust up on them. The election of representative in , \Vatervilie turned upon tliis question, the opposers of this scheme mak incr a slid Itnlt. frrtm mmilnv nominee, wliore opinions were not to pay, and electing the old representative, who’ is a staunch opposei of consolidation. Lewiston Is particularly hostile to the measure, hut her local shlf-interest will strip her opposition of a large part of the influence which it might otherwise possess, the question is a most im portant one, perhaps the most important which will come before the Legislature,—and I shall keep you advised of the various phases of its discussion. Winter Fashions.— The new-fashioned walking dress has taken firm hold. It is inva riably composed of a double skirt, the under one just long enough to escape contact with the pavement, the upper one varying in length witli the style and taste of the wearer. The under petticoat may be made in folds at the edge, or maybe plain and hemmed in any fan tastic style. It is frequently of colored merino or cachmere, the color adopted repeated in the trimming of tho bonnet or in the casaque.— Young persons are permitted bright colored petticoats if the# always go out attended by their mamas or a femme de chambre, but I would not advise an American girl, who wish es to do her own or her mother’s little commis sions, or to go to her lesson unattended by a ho<ly guard, as she is in the habit ot doing at home, to venture into the streets of Paris with anything more showy than black, blue, or violet. This cn passant, feminine young Amer ica is free to wear crimson or scarlet if it pleases, if it stays on its own side of the water. To finish onr costume—the upper skirt is cut, I believe, in six pieces straight in front aud at the back; no folds at the waist, and almost no fulness at the lower edge, which is subject to a thousand capricious variations, plain, scallop ed, pointed Greek and Roman patterns, and what not; the edges and thereabouts set off with either jet or ribbon or galloon or in fringe —in fact, in anything ever heard of or dream ed of in what our facetious old friend of the Vicar of Wakefield school used to call the do main of eat-gut and gauze. According to Beau Brummel’s high authority in the matter of dress, the best dressed person is the one who attracts the least attention to his personal adornments, but who so harmonizes with the rest of the world that lie passes on unremark ed. Plain, every-day sort of folk who share the Beau’s opinion may wear their upper and under skirts of the same material—plain blacks or brown—and he admirably well dressed. The casaque is the covering most worn with this style of dress, hut it is no longer invariably cut in the well known sack style. The pep 1?"IV from Mile. Schneider in La Belle Helene, is among us with divers varia tions and modifications. The peplum proper is straight in trout aud in the back and point ed at the sides. Garments pointed at the back and in front, aud garments made up of points all round, have their admirers and wearers al so their grace depending upon that happy com bination of a graceful figure and a skilful eon fectiouneur (the name of, the artist who makes cloaks of all descriptions, be it known). Large, hanging sleeves for walking gaimentsare again coming up, but have not taken generally as yet.—Paris Letter. Entkrpbising Youth.—The San Francisco Times relates the following: ‘‘The manager of one ot thn most popular theatres in (his city is the father of a four-year old boy. John excels all the other boys in the State in enterprise,— His exploits afford amusement to the neighbors for several blocks near where the family re side. His greatest achievement was accom plished yesterday, when finding a poor misera ble mustang grazing on a vacant lot he caught the animal and lea it to his mother’s house took it up stairs, and was trying to tie it to a bedpost, when the mothor, having heard the elatter of the horse coming up the stairs, went to see w'hat was tho matter, and was horror struck at finding such a brute in her boy’s bed room. It required the servicesof three men to get the adimal down stairs. When asked what lie meant by such conduct, the little rascal said that he wanted to play circus, and, find ing a lost horse, he brought it home to prac tice on.” Law and Medicine.—H»n. David Paul Jones, of tlie Philadelphia I*ar> relates the fol lowing good story in a late work of his: A quack had instituted a suit for medical sen'icuiilgaiust one of his neighbors and the bein,r brought for the use or another, oc eanic himself the witness. A Mr. Williams, who was employed to defend the suit, and to expose the quacky aud worthlessness of the services rendered, subjected the docter to the following cross-examination: “Did you treat the patient according to the most approved rules of surgery?" asked the counsel. “By all means, certainly I did,” replied the witness. “Did you decapitate him?” inquired the counsel. “Undoubtedly 1 did—that waa a matter of course,” answered the doctor. “Did you perform the Caesarean operation upon him?" “Why, of course,” answered the witness, “his condition required it, and it was attended with very great success.” “Did you then,” still further queried the counsel, “subject his person to autopsy?" “Certainly, replied the witness, “that was the very last remedy I adopted.” “ Well then, doctor,” said the counsel, “as you first cut off tlie defendant's head, then dis sected him, and he still survives it, I have no more to ask; aud if your claim^survives it, quackery deserves to be immortal.” SPECIAL NOTICES.
