Equal Taxation. • L.'ave has been granted in tle House of Delegates to introduce a lull tots* all property except churches and thirty fret adjacent there to. This w ti e tub thrown to the whale by Know-Nthitigisii. to satisfy the clamour raia ed by itsell, cm account of the exemption of church, n lijiiuiwJTjtariUible, and literary prop erty from tirttanrsr. Some Huc*h dir?pntal>le suburtinge was to hare been expnofled from the* HutboCs <€ *tiie hmulatg from ifae lie^iumnf.

Such cxciuption was in the stature of a compromise bctv.Lxu the various parties iuteneted, who 1 said to each other. **wo will not tax the prop erty of yonr chared, provided you do not tax f that of ours.'’ and as long as such common' frdmt 'existed, uf oource there wax do com plaint.

It is not “equal taxation 1, to assess cer tain p*>rtins of pm]erty and permit other* to escape. It i not “equal taxation” to endeavor by law to oppress one portion of the communi ty. It is not “equal taxation” to strike at one church. “Equal taxation" means, if it means any thing, tltat all property shall be taxed, and that every person and thing, individual, body corporate, or politic, shall contribute to the support of the government, in proportion to , their worth or estate, real, personal or mixei. Tills is * equal taxation.” It moans this or it means nothing. We sliall see if it is carried out, and every- seminary, academy, convent, monastery, orphans’ house, hospital, religious, charitable and literary institution, chnrch. par sonage. graveyard, cemetery, awl every kind of property be taxed. We shall believe' it when we see it.

Its searching eye, independent of sweeping denunciations, has so far penetrated into high place* a* to. superia | duce the initiative of investigation, in order to ascertain, if possible, whether grave legislators, : or members at Congress, can recede from the * dignity and honor of their potation so as to be come subjects of bribery and'corruption. The necessity even of intimating that such pliant material can, by any pitssbtUiy. tarnish the good Mine of an America!) Congress, is at Inwfc, Cutful. U is, therefore, an imperative duty wiring upon those conscious of their own innocence, to feret out this alleged corruptiDn and part company, or associations, with colleagues absolutely guilty. More than this— they owe to-ihfer constituents and the country a ple*lge of fidelity, to maintain sacred trusts cmumiUcd to their charge. In our natiumd archives rts the swnstitrtioti.

No sacrifice is too great to purge, purify and j place our national administrative conclave iu a ; position, not only above all suspicion, but in j such attitude before the work! as to ccminand j its fullest respect and confidence.

To the complication of modern politics, the aggnualiahig spirit of self-ambitious dema g igues, the inordinate desire fo# position, nower 1 a id wealth, without suilicieat houtaly of pur- 1 I pose, |unity of motive or patriotism, may, iu a j •; crcat measure, be traced most of the evils and ’ , | corrupting influences which, of late yean, have r + entered (ingress, tarnishing it with disgrace. ;! The incipient mauueuverings of partizans, who i themselves liave base ends in view, often be comes instrumental in pKtdng dishonest men 1 in a p nation by and through which thffy are heedlessly swept along tltc popular current to high places; and thus public evils are fixed | upon us without knowing scarcely whence or i hour they came. It would be well in future for i the sovereign masses to apply the corrective at: this point. If we want a pure, honest, up- | right Cougress, we must see to it in the outset,, ; ami send men there whom characters partake l of these virtuous qualities. It is desirous,, [ however, to see the alleged corruptitnis at pre- • ■ sent charged against Congress fully expore I, j | and those having the slightest tinge of bribery f resting unou them, made to feel that tliey can neither defy the scrutiny of an intelligent : pre<s, nor the just indignation of a free, eu- ! lightened people. sliall look with fervent solicitude, to see Eow, where, or to whom, the eighty-seven thousand dollars, charged upon the books of Lawrence, Stone & Co., agents of the Middle sex and Bay State Mills Manufacturing Co., as having been given to Congress (except 8,000) for the modification of the tariff on wool, were disposed of. If it can be shown that any Con gressman or Senator bartered their votes for 1 money, thus taming to personal account the ! . legitimate property of the nation, sacrificing it for base ends, the dignity and sacred reputation [ of our national councils require an expulsion 1 of all such from furtlier participation in the 1 honors and offices of a free government. The Mormon Harems. The columns of the Deseret News are nearly I filled with the sermons of the elders, consisting 1 of tirades against backsliders, anathemas upon , gentiles, and lectures to the women, oommand ! ing subserviency to their husbands.

Maryland has the honor of being the seat of rine of the hart institutions in the United States. We refer to the naval school at Annapolis.— No location for such an establishment can be ; finer. It is chiral as relates to the Atlantic coast, nearly equidistant from the two extremes of our naval stations. It is on one of the most beautifril bay* in the world. It is near the capital of the nation, and qgceanble iu a few hours to the head of the department to which I it belongs, and to Congress, who has over it a i supervisory control, Annap< *lis is large enough to furnish the I test society, without the tempta tions to reckless dissipation which arc afforded Iby an overgrown city. The climate of Mary land ia unexceptionable, hardly surpassed by any part of tlie world. It- has not the rigor of the Northern States, so pinching and trying to the natives of the extreme South ; nor is it af flicted with the bag ami hot summers which are so tedious and debilitating iu the Stales Nv dcring on the Gulf of Mexico. But if the mnl ! r ol supplies is to be taken into a ■count where wr every thing tliat sustains human life be found in greater abundance or jK-rfretion I than in Maryland and on the Chesapeake bay? There are many reasons why thn school ought to be a prime object of interest to the American people. Oar nary should stand the i first in the world, le*ause the time is m t far i distant when American commerce will )*.- greater, not only than that of any other nation but greater*than all other nations put together.

Anecdote of Tristam Burge**. Oliver H. Smith, of Indiana, in uuo of his * , Renrinisetncos, published in the Indianapolta Journal, tells the following story.

Its object was to choke off the northern ; members, and indirectly to kill the bill. The moment the amendment was announced by the chairman, in committee of the wh-lc, Mr. Bur gess, of K. 1., arose and implored the mover to ; withdraw it. He showed Us effects upon the i trade between the eastern States and tho adja- 1 j cent islands, in timber and the return cargoes of mola-scs, which was the daily food of the j p*xr. His speech was short audio the punt., As he took hi* seat, Henry Daniel, of K< muc ky. sprang to his feet and roared out at the top 1 uf his voice ‘Mr, Speaker, let the constituents of the gentleman from Rluidc Island sop then . bread on one side in molasses, and they will ! pay the some duties they do now,’ Mr Bart lett, of New Hampshire, remarked to me: ‘Nuw ' Kxk out for Tristam, Harry will ca c i it.” Mr., Burges* aruw with tire l>eamiug from his coun tenance. and nddresved the chair.
