With the greatest natural advantages ever vouchsafed a nation since the inauguration of the first human government; with a variety of climate adapted to the production of almost any plant, fruit, or flower; with mineral riches boundless and incalculable ; with millions oa millions of acres of thll most fertile of Sllils waiting to be occupied -'-with th"' t lin:,,..i t ....... "Y r and with no r;Jasou on earth why we ahould be poor, the country is to-day in a mO!lt d e pres sed condition-her commerce para lyzed and her industry a t a s tand-still, simply becaus e t h e in capa ble men whp undertook the revi s ion of our finapcial system miserably failed, not only through nat ural inability to rise to the level of the great argu ment," and comprehend the exceptio n a l position in which the country found i t self, but through their ob stinacy i n s t ead il y rejecting the wisdom of others who were thoroughly ve rsed in the sc i ence o f which they had not even mas t e r e d the a lphab et. Thus we find t hem increasing the number of articles taxed in the m ost s h or t-sighted manner, when the ex perience of e very other portion of Christendom w as .a unit i n f avo r of co nfining the imposts to a few articles, and in con stantly diminishing rather than increasing the numb e r. Thus our taxes have become like the locusts of Egypt, and are found everywhere-even in the bit of bread and sup of drink which the poor man puts to his mouth. In view of these legislative errors, and the present depre ss ed condition of the country, we propose to say a word about a possible remedy. This remedy, to our thinking, con s ists in the substitu tion of direct, f or the pre sent system ofindirect, taxation. In Europe, where government is studied as a )lCience, direct taxation is daily growing in favor, not only among statesm e n, but with the masses themselves. For the poor man can readily see how greatly he is the gainer, if, instead of payiug taxes to an indefinite amount on his food and. clothing, he can discharge all his obligations to the government by the payment of a certain moderate s um, and purchase the nec es saries of life at greatly reduced prices; nor doe s it need mllch arithmetic to show that our countrymen to day could better afford to pay even a large rate per capita in the way of a direct tax:, than they can afford to pay twice the amount indirectly. The only difference is that between an open, fair transaction, and a blind, hypocritical one, in which the tax-payer is absolutely cheated by a large impost un{le r the pleasant impression that he is 1 )aying none at nil. Of course this is the most absurd of fallacies. The whe els of gover.nment need to be frequently oilecl to. be kept in motion, and no citizen who enjoys the advantages resulting from the keeping of this administrative machinery in good repair, can a;void contributing toward the ne cessary ex pense. The question for him to decide is not whether h e will pay, but how he will pay, toward the support of the Government. He may pay as we are paying now, by indirect taxation, which, in our opinion, and in that of others more competent to jndgc than -we is the most extravagant and unsatisfa ctory sys tem ever invented. It is, as we have hinted, hypocriti c al, for while it does not call upon us to pay a cent into the common Treas ury directly, it collects a fraction not only whenever we l?ny a cigar, or drink a glass of ale, but also when we purchase food and raiment for ourselve s and fam ilies, and these fractions amount, in the aggregate, to a much larger sum than is required by the aetual necessi tie s of Government, and only a portion of which finds its way into its coffers. For wheneyer a tax-of one per cent. is laid upou any article of general consumption, the cost of that article is enhanced to the consumer near ly two per cent. Thus we see a tax of one-eighth of one per cent. levied upon our street-railway companies for each passenger carried, but the unfortunat e pass enge rs rors of either. The American Union 1s but pay not only the actual tax levied, but s uch advance as after all present s a less complication of peril than is visithe d ea l e r !fees fit to demand, and thus consumption is ble elsewhere ; hence we may expect to see within the diminished, business injured, and the entire commercial twelvemonto, the heaviest system put sadly out of joint. Contra t this with the. 81!'-ce toe days of the settlement ofLows1ana. Thetlde d will, :fut many reasons, flow toward New York, New a vantages flowmg from d1rect taxes. 'I he general Orleans, and. B'altimorc. The South will, Government needs so much money-.say :11300,000,000 a lily, reeewe the largest share, but there are districts of annually, if you please:for administrative purposes. It the West-Indiana and Mi880uri, for instanoe-tha.t computes the receipts from customs, and, for the balance, ?Ontain populations of French descent, e t irua< es the total population of the country, and diwh10h will aliiO be remforced by the new comers. vides that balance into so many portions per capita. In order, how ever, to avoid the necessity of the main tenanc e of a large army of officials for the collection of the tax it is found best to divide the gross amount into portions to be distributed for c ollection among the various States. Thus New York would be charged w ith so many millions, and Ohio with so many millions, for which the State authoriti es would be to the general Government. The collection of this amount by the States would be very simple, as it could 'be as sessed u pon the real property, and paid together v.ith the State and county taxes, and be collected by the same officials. To this plan, however, there would arise the objection that the o\rne1s of real estate would pay all the taxes, and that all others, howeve r wealthy, would go free. The inju stice of this arrangement is manifest. To obviate this, then, we would retain the present income tax, but make it more progres sive-that is, having no $600 or $11000 exemption, but making all recei of income s pay at least a small percentage of it into the public Treasury, increasing the rate progres sively with the wealth of the as now the poor man pays nearly as much in proportion as the citizen who se income crowds hard upon half a million. By an income tax thus made le ss unequal, and upon a per tax if al8o necessary, together with duties, we would rely for the support of the GoYern ment; and we venture to say'that the adoption of such a policy would be followed by an instant revival of trade, and a sensible a melioration in the circumstances of the large majority of our citizens. Abolish, we sa the taxes on whisky, tobacco, manufactures, and items now relied upon to raise, but whi c h do not afford, a. sufficient amount of revenue, numerous as they are. Let us simJllify the system upon the plap. we have proposed, and, our word for it, our :financial evils would epeedily disappear, like the early clond and the morning dew. W arp sirk of tll esc fl.'auds, arul tbP temptationq which our rotten sys t e m of' taxation constantly holds out for their com missi on The whisky trade i s corrupt to the core, and t he tobac co trade is rapicUy becoming so. Let us h ave an end ofhypoc riti cal shams and the attainment o f our ends by tor t uous and dishonest ways Let us c ome o u t squa r ely a nd say to eac h c itiz e n, You m ake so much money i n your avocation, what ever it may be, annually, and you are protected in your pursuit by an organized a nd costly government. We therefore assess you so much in proportion to your in co me, and we pl e dge ourse l ves not to impose taxes upon any article which you co n s ume, or to l eyy further trib ute npon yo u in any other way. In short, we consider the payment of this proportio n of your annua l income, as a full discharge of all c l a ims Government may have .against you !" This -would be clealing fairly with the citizen, and to t hi s complexio1,1 must we c ome at last." We have had enough trickery and chicane: l e t us now try a little honesty iu t he administration of public affairs I MINOR EDITORIA.LS. A'ITEN'l'IVE readers of T!J.E LEAl doubtless re!Ile!Ilber that the con cluding sect ion of the proposed law ado-pted by the Convention at \Vash ingtou last winter, cont .amed this provision: "And the eotmterfeitil}g of stamps be regarded in law as an oHEmce eq ual to the counterfeit ing of Government money, and b e similarly punished." This is one of the best provisions of the proposed law, and one rendered inevitably necessary by the adoption of the stamp Ryst(m at all. In yiew of this we were glad to notice t h e following telegram in the daily papers last week: April 29.-Wiiliam Wilson, a: stencil-cutter, wa s imprisoned to-day to answer before the Unite d States Grand Jury for cutting counterfeit United-States tr that there is something in them. This lit what is now ta.k ing place the1e in the matter of beet-root sugar. When England w en t to war with Napoleon she cut off the.. supply of West-Indian sugar by blockading the Frencl1 ports; but the great Frenchman tried the beet, found that he could make sugar better and cheaper tha.u that imported and made from the cane, Britain amazed, but could not learn. When the famine brok!.' out in Ireland twenty years ago, a learned chelllif'.t, showed Sir Robert Peel that beet-root sugar would rc establish the prosperity of the country, stop the flow of emigration, and support a heavier populatton than an v: other branch of agriculture; but the EnglisJ, statesman put off the 11ubject for consideration to" a mon' convenient season." Since that time many beeH induced to make experime11ts on a smallecale, but witl so little earnestness and savoir faire, as to have comll' to the c onclusion that" it could not be done." Recently however, an adyertisement in the London 1imM ha.<; op e ned the eyes of John Bull. A Mr. Duncan makes thrf'!> hund:-ed tons of eet sugar per week, and 11Dderselh the cane s ugar. This being done in England, hones t John is bound to believe it ; and when Mr. Duncan a11 norlnces that he will bui six thousand tons of beets an(l pay eighteen shillings (*4 50 in gold) per ton for them, John does not know what to think. One thing he know, that he has grown thousands of tons of beets an nually for stock-feeding purposes, which by the economical management have never been worth thnt price ; and the next few years, therefore, will see a great tride in the sngar-h<'< peciall y, as being most in need o f it-may derive soin., consolation from the reflection that they are not muth worse off than their fellow-snfterers in France and Gnat, Britain. This satisfaction, however, may be by the fact that in Englancl the period of depressi ou has apparently passed its climax, and that having for -a sum equal to $82g,ooo,ooo I! Vast as was this it was surpassed in the following year, when, by then viv a l ot' the cotton manufacture, caused by the increaser! supply of that staple consequent on the cessation 1 -t hostilities in the South, the exports reached the tot" I of ,917,53, or $944,000 ,000! Had this increa.'l>.:' continued throughout 1867, the export!! would have ex ceeded one thousand millions of dollars in value ; but instead of' this tley diminished, and the total of the ex ports of the year is only $906,000,000, or, to be exac' (, ,1S3,971. It is quite true, however, that this d crease is rather apparent than real. In 1866 there we r,, imported by Great Britain 1,377,040,000 lbs. of ra..w cotton, at a cost of '76,500,000; and in 186'7 the im ports of cotton were 1,262,464,000 lbs.,at a cost of only ,000,000-in other words, the decrease in the quru1 tity was 8 per cent., while the decrease in the cost wa..; 32 per cent. The ex}lorts of cotton fabrics in 18>7 were in value onlr, ,869,000 less than in 1866-that is to say, that wh1le the raw materialcost ,000,00 l less, the sales of the Illllnufactured material were not quite ,000,000 less. This is not by any means a brul showing, and it may be said that the cotton manufue turers in England have done better in 186'7 than in lLllY year since 1861. The decrease in the trade with tk' United States alone accounts for nearly the whole deti ciency in the exports of 1867, although the exports t" Australia were mtich emaller than in 1.866. But in th, face of this falling off, the British manufacturers se e lll now to be taking fresh courag _e. THE vintages of the past year on the continent c.l' Europe, can now be estimated both as to quantity quality, and although the season was not considered em. inently favorable to grape culture, the result is gene-t ally more satisfactory than had at first been anticipateout one-thud of the grapes. Th<> production of the year is estimated at about 45100H pipes, against 60,000 in 1866, and of 96,000 in 1860 About 10,000 pipes of 1867 may be considered of su perior quality, 20,000 good and medium, and the. mainder suitable only for the 8t ill and home COD.SWDf tion. In Champagne we ha ve to record a medium vin: tage. The grape was at :first affected by the unfavol able weather, and although the latter part of the sum mer was fine the vintage was oot ushered h unde r propitious Circumstances. At the close, howevel' fine weather again appeared and enabled those who ba<[ deferr e d gathering to produce a very good wine, b u t at the present mom ent .the vintage is doubtful, and mav in the end produ ce about an average. It is geyeralir


thought that the 1865's will be among ever produced. Claret is reported defietent m yu:ld, althouh it is satisfactory to learn that the new wme IS of a "'o-eod useful qu!!.lity, which will probably com pensate"' the 'growei s by thte price.s they will. realize the great falling off in the quantity. Made1ra IS factory both m quantity and quality, and although steadily on the increase is ill rat1o With the enor :mous strides of the two preoedmg years. The tion, however, will never equal what 1t was pnor to 185'1, when the annual average was 30,?00 p1pes, as a great portion of the land then cultlVated IS now devoted to the g1owth of sugar cane and cereals. On the Rhine and Moselle little sun and l1eat w1th too much wet and cold, have a most vintage. The unfavorable weather that accompanied the vintage precluded all chance of the grapes maturing, and pre vented their perfect fermentatiOn, thereby leavmg .an unusually large remnant of saccharme :matter which will cause the wmes to be m a most un condition when the beat of the spnng ap proaches. Owino to the vintage of 1866 also havmg -been so bad, the"' fine wines of 1862 and 1865 have greatly augmented value. WB give the following important rumor from ington for what it is worth, and may have something o:lfer about it in future. Almost any change would m this case be an improvement, it the c;e ation of more worthless and vemal offilIals Without m their efficiency : It is reported fi:om Washington that the Ways a.nd Means Committee have ao-reed to report in favor of making the Internal Reve Bureau an independent establishment, net under the control of the Secretary of the Treasury. They provide for one one and five deputy commissioners, besides a. The com missioner is to be responsible for the entue management --of the bureau and for the collection of the revenues, and to this he is to sole power of and appointing collectors,, and .their ass!st ants. The measure throughqut 1s of th1s sweepmg character." THE operation of the fifty per cent. clause of the General Bankrupt law cannot but prove beneficial both to creditors and debtors. It must make persons who -are operating upon credit careful about contracting bilities to such a.n extent that they cannot see their way clear out of their difficulties should they become un1ortunate. The great that the:y shall so husband their estates that they will be able, m case of trouble a.nd inability to pay, to show a balance sheet which w1ll enable them to realize fifty per cent. of tbmr debts from their remaining aesets, before them with the force of a. momtwn. It will make them careful, econonncal, and vigilant. As the la.w stands, it offers a premium to the prudent, a.nd cer .:tifies to everyone who has a watchful desire to be rea.dv for the worst that he must proceed slowly, but with certainty and' that he must not risk too much. It will rel!train that headlong ambition to "make or break" which has been tlle bane of business i.n this country, :md the cause of encouragmg over-indebtedness, similar in consequences to over-trading, and producing muc_h misery and unhappmess. The present law IS the most sensible one that we have ever had l,Il this --country, and will prove of vast. advantage to and commerce. It will control busmess and mould busmess customs with direct reference to its provisions. The sections which relate to involuntary bankruptcy, place a remedy in the hands of every to be used a!ninst an improvident debtor, the latter m a of wild experiment, and compellmg h1m to bear in mind the fact that there is a restraining power which may at any moment be exercised against him. The fifty per cent. clause was to have gone into effect in one year after the passage of the act, but as the appli cations under the latter were slow, and many worthy men sufferin.,. under past nnsfortune had not yet ap_plied for the "'benefit of its provisions, it was thought to be both liberal and to the penod dUf!Jlg which the favor of a discharge m1ght be allowed, w1th 'tlut reference to the fifty per cent. regulation. As a. .eonsequence, a. movement to this end was made some time ago. Mr. J enckes, of Rhode Island, who had of the bill, brought. forward in the House 'll. motion to postpone the ttme when the fifty per cent. should go into operation until June 1 1869. There was some objection, and finally a was ari"ived at, by which it was agreed to postpone the period until January 1, 1S69. In that "Shape the amendment passed. We can sca rcely expect that there will be trouble in relation to the matter in the Senate. The only point in doubt is whether there -will be such speedy action as to render the subject free from all uncertainty, so that the public may clearly un -derstand the extent of their privileges under the law in time to avail themselves of them. THE recently-published pamphl_et of :Mr. Ja.y Cook.e, setting forth the grounds on wh1ch he pronnsed com payment in his advertisement as Government agent for the sale of the first series of the Five-twenty bonds, is very clear and convincing, a.nd is deserving of special attention. Among other forcible arguments, he lays great stress the fact that no question of paying Five-twenties in any other standard than tba.t of com, was ever raised until several years after the loan had been sold that if in 1S63 or 1S64 such a question had arisen bonds could not have been negotiated; that the su'ccessive Secretaries of the Treasury have all declared that the bonds would be paid in gold ; that the bonds were bought by the people in reliance upon this declaration ; that the contract. was so understood and accepted by the whole country, a.nd that Congress al lowed the Treasury to make these repeated promises without giving any warning or hint of a. claim to modif7 or invalidate the contract m after .,yean. Fmally, he claims as a principal is bound by the acts of his agents, so the nation IS bound by -these acts of its Congres'! a.nd other repre11entatives, and that the contract must be interpreted and fulfilled in the 1'l6llBe understood on both sides when it was first made. He meets the objection that the bondholders are a j>rivileged class of capitalists, by the statement already made in the columns of TnE LEAF, that out of three millions of subscribers to the Seven-thirties, nine-tenths -were persons of small means; and he adds, The West took *32.0,000,000 of the tB31,000,000 Seven-thirty loans and this is as large a proportion as could be ex pected from a new and enterprising regwn, wheie money always commands higher 1-ates than a.t the. Ohio alone took over $9o,ooo,ooo, and Ilhno1s over *'70,000,000. The West was also a large taker of the Five-twenty and other loans. I ca.n substantiate these statements, for I have taken the trouble to analyze each day's subscriptions with the above result. Again, how "Can -the bondholders be considered a privileged class ? Du1ing the entire sale ofthese bonds they we1e offered freely, at par, to anyone. Even the owner of but *50 .:was not excluded, but hundreds of thousands of these Km&ll investors came forward from all p&rts of the land and were gladly welcomed. The small premium to which our bonds have advamced 1s no rmpediment 10 the way of anv one who really wtshes to obta1n them, and even now the dally demand from this class ofinvestms JS far greater than that any other class. What becomes then, of the assertion, that the ma.n who hold!! bonds is a. pnv1leged person?" Ix is evident that buf)iness activity is based upon the nmount of capital a commumty may be able to command together with the productiveness of Its employment.' All permanent prosperity and sion is, therefore, referable to these as a. cause. It IS 11seless however, to deny the fact that many if not most of the momentary panics, for the tune most del HE TOBACCO LEAF. struct1ve to the interests of trade, often arise from causes m which actual capital bas little or no concern They are not traceable to any derangement or lack of wealth, but rather to a derangement in the means by whJCh It is exchanged or made available. Money, though an mdispensable requisite to commerce, may be brought tempornrily into antagonism to it, and, in place of pro seriously derange the active interests of the coun try. This arises f10m the in:fiuence wh1ch tt commands as an independent power ill society Even in the form of a me1e representative of value, 1t carries with it for the time being all the force of actual capital. So true is this that Jt is found by experience that a. few capitahsts m Wall st1eet ma.y perceptibly aftect the business mtetests of the whole country, through specula tive operations in relation to the currency. But mdependcnt of premeditation or design, the most seuous results, pe1haps, have been occasioned through temporary msuffic1ency m the cuculatmff medium fiom accidental causes and sudden expansi"n of trade. It IS a well recognized fact that the requirements for money vary greatly at difl:"erent penods of the year, and 1f not panics at least gt eat inconveiDences often ensue detrimental to business m the extreme, f10m a want of the proper facilities to supply these demands, the inadapt ability of our financial system to the exigencies of the occasiOn. It is claimed that the finanCial system possesses an' advantage, an elasticity, in this respect, not existina in our own, through the power of the Bank of England to afford temporary relief on occasions of unusual monetary stringency.

Gold opened this morning at 139-g, and at noon had f..'\llen to 139s. .&change.The market in the fore part of the week was weak on account of the mcreased supply, and rates favored buyers, but towards the close, as the supply became low, rather than through any mmeased demand, It became firmer. We clip the following from the New Odeans Price Current, whiCh will not come amiss to many of our readers. Those who do business directly or indirectly with England understand what is meant by sterling exchange: also, why It IS that when it is quoted at 9f p1em. IS but really at pa.r. It bas been often ex plained, but still the question is often asked, Wbat 1s sterling exchange, and bow can the relative value of English and American money be ascertained?" The following are the whys and wherefores of the whole matter. The dollar formerly in use in the United States was the Spanish dollar (m silver), the value of which was 4s. 6d. sterling. 'l'his was taken, and has since been, a.nd still is used as the basis of exchange ; and to this cause may be attributed most or much of the miscon conceptiop as to sterling exchange in the United States. If $1 be worth 4s. 6d., what is the value in dollars of or_20s.? 4s. 6d.=4i shillmgs. 20 40 Then-= =4, or 4 dollars 44 cents, 4! 9 and 4-10 of a cent, or 4 mills. Now, supposmg the standard of American currency to be still the Spanish dollar, 1t is clear that $4 would represent, at par, the value of sterling. But that standard has been changed-first, by' a. United States silver and then by a. gold one, so that now the par value IS about 9t per cent. above $4 4, or $4 S6 per Hence, when exchange is quoted, say 109! to 110 in New York, it is about par-i.e., it is just as profitable to buy exchange at that price ffn a I emittance as it is to send gold. If the price be 111 to 112, it would pay expenses and 1 per cent. to 2 per cent. in addition, to send gold ; but if below 109!, there would be a loss in shipping gold. All exchange is calculated upon a. gold basts, but at the present time the usual business of the Umted States being transacted in currency, this has to be taken into account in settling any prwe, or sending remittances for payments ; and this IS done in the following man ner ; for instance What is worth in cunency, with exchange say at 109-h and gold at 40 per cent. premium? -4. Therefore -444. And 444 at in gold. Which at 40 per cent. premium=$6S1"31 m cunencv. The same process gives the true result, let the rate of exchange and premium on gold vary as they may .And, vice versa, to find the value of a g1ven amount of currency in sterling : A in New York wishes to pa.y Bin London the value of S,600 cuiTency in sterling. Gold is 136, and ex change lOSt. How many pounds, shillings and pence must he send h1m ? $4 at lOB! gives say $4 m gold. Which at 36 premium-$6"558 per sterling $8,600 Therefore-=,311 7s. 6cl, amouRt to $6 558 be 1 emitted. .And so again: What is the value in sterling of $1,000 in United States 5-20 Bonds, when quoted 11lf m New York, w1th a?ld at 134, and exchange at 108? rrice of bonds-111!, z. e, 11! premium. Then $1,000 at nt, premium-$1,115. 4 at lOS-say $4 SO in gold. Which at 34 premium=$9 per sterling. ,115 Thcrefmc ---_ 7s., value of $1,000 $9 432 in sterling. \V e quote sixty days Commercial Bills on London, 109-!@109-i; Bankers', 110@110-k; Bankers'; Short Sight, Antwerp f.5.17t@f.5.12t; Hamburg, 36@36-!; Amsterdam, 40!@41i; Bremen, 79-H-@ so.
