A recant decision by the Internal Revenue Department states that tanners in the country, who receivo hides from merchants lu cities to bo tanned on loniinl.'Si. n, are liable, under the act of June 3D, ISM, to return all filch leather, and pay tho duty thereon, w hen it h aves their tanneries and ceases li bo nnilcr their custody or control.

In n mini to leuther manufactured nil r to June 3i, the same rule will apply In determining its linbiliiy to tho increased tax imposed by the new law us ynu applied to ilctcrmino the iiiuount roturnable to the assessor from month to mouth.

Its t Heels upon the human frame are miraculous, and in nil eases where vitality enough is Islt to react, a speedy cure, it It claimed, can be effected. Th reason given lor tbo repealed failure of tbe old medical systems of practice, is that the diseases have their orion in ibe pelvic viscera, and enn liot lie reached under such treatment.

The new bull movement In stocks is btghtiins to develop Itseir, and, In New Y .rk especially, shows great strength. Thousands of shore change hands hourly, and to large are the treat actions on the street, beyond the printed sale,' tbat we hear of one bear opemtor who sold 10,009 shares of Erie alone, seller thirty days. Frosa this some idea may bo formed of the character and strength of the fight now going on between the bulls and bears for the snprem icy. We think that the "heaviest artillery" is on the side of tha bulls, who deserve success for tbeir manliness in coming forward with large means to pre rent panic at this crisis. Of eoerse there are many persons who would be glad to see a financial crisis just now, that the Government might be) embarrassed ; but the vast body of the people) would be the sufferers. , , Lost evening, at the Flfh Avenue Board, (hsf market was very stormy. Illinois Central sold np to 1 18, a rise of & per rent. ; Erie at 94. a rise of 2 per cent. ; Eesdlng, 1231-or 61 J, -and the whole) list was firm at advancing prices. Gold was) higher, selling at 97. It ts stated, in welUn fotinrd circles, that the rise in gold, )ust ow4 lsl based npon Saturday's demand for European shipment. It Is stated that some of the Geraa&a bankers who bought onr cV20s when gold was selling at 275, are now reselling them here, wUk gold at l'.)o. This would be a very nice financial stroke for Mciuhecr, and we have nodoabtthat to tha remittances of tho proceeds of the tale) of these 5-20s we aro Indebted for the present Hurry in gold.
