HILL, DYER 4 ROBINS. ftblftUwliaS DAILY PRESS. Portland. Wednesday Morning, Pthruary 20, 1867. The Death Feaalty. I* is a little more than a hundred years since Bet-caria asked, “What right have men to cut the throats of heir fellow creatures?” and followed up the enquiry by another which has never been answered: “If it is so, how shall it be reconciled with the maxim that a man has no right to kill himself ?” In 1705 Tuscany, influenced by his efforts, abolished the punishment of death experimentally. In 1780, after twenty-one years trial of the re formed code, the Grand Duke Leopold de creed its perpetuity. “Instead of increasing the number of crimes,” said Leopold, “it has considerably diminished that of the inferior ones and rendered those of an atrocious char acter yery rare.” Almost fifty years later, in 1830, M. Berenger reported to the French Deputies, that “the mi'duess of their penal legislation had so far improved the character of the Tuscans that there was a time when the prisons of the Grand Duchy were nearly empty.” And now the Kingdom of Italy has adopted the principle of the Tuscan philoso pher, who being also a marquis was able to secure a reasonable consideration for bis the orizings, and capital punishment is abolished throughout the Italian peninsula. Throughout Europe, where the death pen alty lias in past ages been assigned to every crime from larceny up to murder, there is a marked tendency towards the goal which Ita ly has reached. In France, in the last four years of which the statistics are accessible, little more than one-half of 04 death condem nations were carried into effect. Out of 127 sentences lor murder in Prussia, from 1858 to ■1802, there were but thirteen persons execut ed. In Austria, during ten years ending with 1804, ninety-five per cent, of death sentences were commuted. From 1830 to 1863, the whole number of death sentences pronounced in Belgium was 819, of which only fifty seven were inflicted, or less than two for every year. In Portugal the last execution occurred in 1840; in a large part of Switzerland theie have been no executhins for thirty-five years; in Denmark, Sweden, and Holland, the com mutations have been ninety per cent, or more. England, witli the ftnost crusl of criminal codes, condemned annually to death in the ten years ending with 1832, nearly 1,280 per sons, out of which number the annual aver age of sentences carried into effect was not more than 59. But in the decade ending with 1802, the annual number of condemnations fell to 60, of which only about 11 were exe cuted. In this country the spectacle of a public hanging grows more rare. In Massachusetts the twenty years ending with 18(56 show only 10 executions out of 28 convictions for capital offences. In Maine the law remains upon the statute book, hut the responsibility of ordering its execution devolves upon the Governor and the result is a practical abolition of the penalty. Gov. Chamberlain very properly calls upon the Legislature to settle the matter defi nitely, by either making it the duty of the Ex ecutive to order the execution of condemned ciiminals or abolishing the penalty altogether. We trust the Legislature will accept the latter alternative. The carnival of crime which ap pears to be prevailing in this State and else where cannot be justly attributed to the laxi ty of the present practice. Another and suf ficient cause is to be found in the demoraliza tion which attends and follows war. It is not confined to this State, it should be observe!, but extends equally to States where the gal lows still bears its shameful fruit Except on the point just mentioned argu ment on this question has been exhausted. Commutation of the extreme itenuity of the law has long been urged by some of tbe best and ablest men of every country. The argu ments of Iiobert liantoul before the Legisla ture of Massachusetts, of Livingstone before the Legislature of Louisiana, and of John L. O'Sullivan in 1841 before the Legislature of New York, have been spread abroad, repeated and reconsidered by tbe public press until there is uo man of mature years who has not become familiar with them. The simple fact that the experiment has been tried in a single province o ' Italy for a hundred years, with re sults so satisfactory as to warrant its repeti tion ou a larger scale throughout the kingdom, is worth a ca tload of treatises on the subject. Let us abolish the death penalty altogether, or if we are not ready to do that, let us abol ish the barbarous gallows, adopt the instru ment which Ur. Guillotin recommended to the French Assembly in 1789 and despatch onr criminals bumhnely. The Revenue front the Nalioual Hank*. It has bee l repeatedly suggested that by withdrawing the notes of the National Banks from circulation and substituting United States notes, the country would in effect obtain a loan of $300,1X10,000 without interest, thereby sav ing annually some 18,000,000. The suggestion has been received with favor in various quar ter's. Newspapers as far apart as the Inde pendent and the Argus have treated it as a wise and economical measure. Mr. McCul loch’s main objection to it was that the levy ing of such a forced loan was only defensible as a war measure, and that the government is bound in honor to recall the greenbacks al ready afloat Instead of issuing more. The distinction which the Secretary makes in this argument between the government and the people has not been generally regarded as well taken, and Mr. Kandall, of Pennsylvania, in troduced a bill In the House of Representa tives a few weeks ago, to effect the substitu tion named. This bill has been elaborately reviewed by Mr. George Walker, in a pam phlet published at Springfield, Massachusetts Mr. Walker has made these topics a subject of special investigation for the last ten years, having for nearly tour years held the of fice of Bank Commissioner in Massachusetts, and having more recently been connected wtth the Treasury Department of the United States government. In the summer and fall of 180T>, he was in Europe on business of the Department, and was specially instructed by the Secretary of the Treasury to look into the questions then and still under investigation in France, respecting banking and currency. He was then brought into communication with some of the best authorities on these subjects iu France, as well as in England.— As a result of these enquiries he declares that the United States have now the best banking system in the world, and adds that this opin on is shared by some of the soundest French and English thinkers. He opposes Mr. Ran dall's bill, on the ground that it will destroy the present system of banking. The contem plated saving of eighteen millions, Mr. Walker regards as wholly illusory, since a revenue ex ceeding that sum is now derived from the banks and would be saciificed by the change. His treatment of this branch of his subject is \ especially instructive. We copy from the pamphlet, as follows: We have thus far attempted to show, that without the privilege of circulating their own notes, the majority of banks in the United States could not do a living business, and that the suppression of these banks would be a blow to the industry ot the country, which has always been promoted by banking facili ties, and is dependent on them. We have al so shown that the weight of this blow would tall upon the country districts, and that the cities, though not intrinsically the caiuers by the suppression of the National banks tvoulil lie relative gainers by our loss. We have hitherto l>een silent with regard to the econo my of Eighteen Millions, which the nation is promised out of this movement. But we are now prepared to assert, that no such econo my can, in fact, be realized, and we think we can establish, by indisputable figures, that the nation will not be a dollar richer lor the change. If the National banks are to be au]> pressed the Government will, ot course, lose all the’ revenue now derived trom them. What Is that revenue? Let us see. The taxes paid by the bankers are as fol lows. Except circulation, which has now reached its maximum, the items are trom the t’omptioller's report: Circulation, 300 millions at 1 per cent., $3,000,000 Deposits, nos millions at 1-2 oft per cent., 2,830,000 License on 417 millions capital, at $2 a thousand, - - - - 834,000 Dividends and surplus, 3 per rent., on say 10 per oent. earning*, - - 2,086,000 Total Direct Taxes, . . 18,748,000 But besides these Direct Taxes, the "overn ment get-s the use of the Reserve of legal ten ders held by the banks, liy tbe latest returns reported by the Comptroller, these amounted to Two Hundred and Six Millious, which are worth to tbe Government Twelve Million Tl r e Hundred and Sixty Thousand Dollars a sum which added to the Direct 1'axes maltes a total of Twenty-One. Million, One Hundred and Nine Thousand Dollars, as the revenue which the nation now derives from the Na tional banking system; being upwards of flwee Millions more than the saving, which the people are promised by their suppression. it it is said that a considerable part of the ‘‘galto.ders, uow held by the banks as a re whinh Sf® /h* ComjKJUud Interest notes,on answer * VhTT'1®"1 *9 interest, the and be nJ Ti tbc9e notes will soon mature, f.e obUrat T °ftonverted into bonds, while ders will stm^holrta of legal ten tbe luture pll!le7of*tt! *° tbat’in dUcus8iu!’' lie assumed, that mu^i2°,“ry* “ may ,air,y cie payments, tl,e banks ' XT,*01} ° .8^' lawful money not bearinc* i * e to ,l° ln twenty i>er cent, of their ^gregamcV “‘i ,fast and deposits; (twenty-five m?em in » °D demptlon cities, fifteen per cent In’ ,e ty.) In point o( tact, tile moment £ redemption of National bank notes TV,;, they will have to hold a considerably iaro«r sum, as they cannot trench upon the reserve itself, without suspending the right to dis count. But it we take only twenty per cent, on their deposits and circulation, and these be assumed at only eight hundred millions (sixty-six millions less than the actual amount last reported by the Comptroller.) tbe amount of lawful money to be held will be One Hundred and Sixty Millions, on which the interest realized by the Government will be Nine Millions, Six Hundred Thousand, which added to the Direct Taxes, given above still shows a revenue of Eighteen Millions Three Hundred and Eorty-Niiie Thousand, or more than the contemplated saving. In point off act, this whole revenue of more than Eighteen Millions is paid by the banks for the privilege of circulating about One Hundred and Forty Millions in notes, which is the difference between the authorized cir culation, and the required reserve. Burial ef Maiae Saldirra. The following correspondence has been for warded to us by Colonel Robie lor publica tion: Hdqrs. Dep’t of the Tennessee, t Office Sup’t of National Cemeteries, j liouisvillc, Ky., Jan. 19,1s67. J Con. Frederick Robik, Gorham, Maine: Dear Sir:—Having recently returned from a tour through Georgia, from Chatauooga to Sa vannah, following the route ol “Sherman’s March to the Sea,” 1 hasten to communicate to you a few facts, in regard to the condition of the graves of Maine soldiers at Savannah. These soldiers arc buried in the Laurel Grove Cemetery. I visited their graves and found them in good condition. I have rcommended the establishment of a National Cemetery at “Thunderbolt,” live miles from Savannah, to which all the dead in the vicinity of Savannah and the neighboring islands shall he removed. I have suggested that the dead from the islands as far as Hilton Head be also brought to the Cemetery. No action has as yet been taken in the matter, and it will not be decided for some weeks. As soon as it is, I shall take tdeasure in informing you on the subject. I eave for Washington this morning to endeavor to get Congress to take some definite action in the matter of the National Cemeteries, and to make appropriation sufficient to do the work as it ought to be, and as it must be done. I send you herewith the names of such Maine soldiers as I copied from the Headboards in the burying-ground at Savannah; also the names of Maine soldiers reported from other parts of this Drpartmeut.

Notwithstanding the great depth of mnd on Thursday evening last, the splendid hail at Ligonia Village, Cape Elisabeth, on Main, near Lincoln street, just finished liy their pub lic spirited citisen, Mr. Henry Dodge, was well filled at an early hour not only hy members of the Order, but by those wishing to witness the dedication by Ligonia Lodge, No. 138, I. O. of G. T. to the sacred cause ol temperance. The occasion, the interest manifested, anil the generous representation of other neighbor ing Lodgos. failed not to fill the boarts of all with pride and satisfaction. Promiuent among those present, were Br. Sawyer, G. W. <». T.; Bro. Rich, G. W. T.; Bro. Thompson, W. C. T., of Atlantic Lodge, Bro. Hawkcs, Bro. Chase of Knightville Lodge, and other true and tried friends ofthe great temperance reform. Let us not pause for a description of the era of good feeling, and congratulation which swnyetl the entire collection, when as if regardless of the monent W. C. T. Haskell called the meet ing to order. After the usual impressive cere monies of dedication had been passed through, the W. C. T. announced as the Orator of the evening, Prof. D. G. Harrimau, of Portland.— To those who had the fortune to listeu to this address, comments are unnecessary. The character of the man, and of his brilliant, ele gant address, made this the prominent feature of the ovening. Sufficient is it to soy, that the entire address from the opening to the conclud ing remarks was an earnest, burning uppeal to the lovers of temperance and the friends of reform,and to those in power, to strike, strike hard, strike earnest and sure, against the dead ly foe, intemperance; not by moral suasion, not upon bended knees, but by stern legisla tion and tlic halter. The Prof, is destiued to rank high among temperance writers, and the friends of teui|ierauce may well rejoice that so brilliant and efficient a supporter has been added to its number. Bro. lvich, the genius oi good humor and em bodiment of wit, was then callod for. Like the sage of old, he is always ready, and the en tire audience were soon convulsed in laughter. The audience insisted upon the Brother taking the stand, hut he quickly excused himself— which the audience were as quickly will ing to allow—by exhibiting to the as tonished audience, all covered with mud, the mammoth boots which like •“ ancient armor encased him. His remarks, a. usual, produced mueff good feeling. rt”* Chase of Kuightwell, and Thompson of Arca na Ledges, made interesting »nd remarks. The floor was then subm.twd to the W. Chaplain of Ligonia Lodge, Bro. yer, the faithful and inucb-esteemedpastor of the Methodist circuit, whew eentae the Lodge has fortunately secured. From first to last he hnrl.nl upou tlio audience a continued volley of side-splitting jokes and anecdotes, which resulted in tremendous bursts of laughter and applause. Closing as it did the speaking of the evening, it left the audience in great merri ui"nt and much good feeling. Let us here ex tend the thanks of the Lodge to those who so generously assisted in entertaining the audi ence with such much-commenled-up on and much-needed music and singiug, which mado tho occasion so pleasant and agreeable to all.— Ligouia Lodge is yet is in its infancy, but with untiring ambition and ceaseless efforts it ad vances to the front rauk ot the great Order of Good Templars, and she points with pride to her record, knowing tbnt her efforts are not in vain, that her teachings are not without effect. __W. 8.

A special commission has beeu named to consider these demands. —Alas for our illusions! One of those terri ble Gradgriuds who are always grubbing up the green, flowery turf of history and romauce in search of “ facts,” has discovered that William Tell is only a myth, and that his story is no more than a feeblo copy of one which has beeu repeated regarding men of many lands, remote from each other, during the past eight centu ries or more. One Mr. ‘-Baring 8. Gould, M. A.,” undertakes to show that the same story as Tell’s was current far antecedent to the date of the popular one, and thereon rests a theory of his own that Tell Is not a historical charac ter. Another of these matter-of-l'aet fellows has just given a damaging blow to the story of Pocahontas. What are they likely to leave us?

His nose was also burned, as it by coming ont of his nostrils, and his clothes were stiil burning wben found. No other part of the body save the air passages was burned.
