The Secretary of the Treasury reports
the above amount as the payment on the
national debt for the month coding April
3ntb, and *67,933,066 82 as the sum total

REDUCTION OF TAXES.— It begins to be
definitely understood that all the internal
taxes, except on tobacco and whiskey, and
the stamp duties and incomes, will be abol
ished. The income tax will bring out a
spirited contest in which the tax will most
likely be retained and the rate reduced to
three percent and the exemption raised to
*2OOO. This would then be the most easi.
iy borne of all the interna! taxes, as it would
not faL upon more than 100,000 people out
of our 40,000,600, and they would all be of
the wealthier classes, on whom it would be
a very light burthen.
THE Gazette denie3 that the western
people horned their corn far fuel under
free-trade, and charges that it was done un
der the present tariff. We have always
given the Gazette credit for a reasonable
amount of intelligence, hut it certainly has
not forgotten that the burning of corn for
fuel in the western states occurred before
tho war, under Jimmy Buchanan's adminis
tration and a comparatively free trade rate
of duties. Neither can it hare forgotten
that the present tariff was not enacted until
more than a year after the rebellion had
began and that grain was one of the first
things to rise in price. The Gazette there
fore is wofully ignorant or deliberately false
in its statement in rertrd to this matter.
It can take whichever horn of the dilemma
it likes. We told the truth and the
Gazette knows or ought to know it Free
trade has always reduced the price of all
kinds of agricultural productions unless in
times of famine or war. We now make the
assertion that a comparison of prices will
show that the average price of grain for a
succession of years has always been higher
under a protective than under a free trade
or revenue tariff, when there has been no
out-side disturbing influence, such as for
eign wars or famines. It is clear to the
mind of every sensible man, tLat the pro
tection that boilds up home manufactures
and gives employment to large numbers of
laborers must make good Lome markets.
They know :l here from practical experi
ence, ever since our Broad top eoal region
has been developed, and they now declare
it every day in their anxiety to have fur
naces bui It and the iron ores of our ('uanty
worked in our own neighborhood.
THE NATIONAL GUARD OF PENN
The supplemental military act of the late
session of the legislature styles the active
militia of this Commonwealth, "the Nation
al Guard of I'cnneyhalua."
At the breaking out of the late rebellion,
tho patriotic response of the arms-bearing
j-ortion ofour people completely disbanded
all existing military organisations and con
verted the militia-num into the disciplined
soldier, the thoroughly tried veteran. There
is not a county in the Commonwealth that
could not, if called upon to day to guard the
national honor, fill its quota with acrom
pilshed soldiers, who learned the stern les
sons of war in actual service, and whose
discharges are their diplomas of honor as
graduates from bloody fields. Of such ma
tcrialwati the new military organizations of
l ~* ® ute oow being, in good part constitu
ted—schooled soldiers, organising to prac
tice the discipline and drill, tha military
knowledge already acquired, that they may
be prepared again to respond to any call
that may be made upon them, to meet any
emergency that may demand their service,
whether it be to prevent or repel invasion,
or to suppress insurrection, tumult or riot
"h great propriety, therefore, does the
new law style the active militia of our Com
monwealth, as now being constituted, the
-\atioHal Guard of Prhnzylcauia" —and
as contra-distinguished from the compara
tively undisciplined organizations of the old

PECTS OF VIKGIJIIA,
Virginia is among the first of the States
to receive the impetns of the wave of immi
gration now rolling southward; and at this
time, her material prospects • fast bright
ening. Travellers through the State de
scribe a large percentage of the passenger
travel on her railroad trains as being com
posed of incoming settlers and those who
are prospecting over the country with a view
to purchase. Her large land holders have
reversed the old policy, and arc now willing
and even anxious, to sell their estates in
small or large tracts, and are extending a
cardial webrme to the immigrant, whether
from the Northern States or from Europe.
Thousands of acres of the best agricultural
lands on tbe continent are daily changing
hands, and the territory of Virginia is fast
filling up with an industrious and thrifty
I class of yeomen.
The mineral wealth of Virginia, although
known as far back as the Revolution, is just
beginning fo be appreciated. The iron work"
ers of Pennsylvania, whose ore-beds are
every year becoming more expensive to work
have been securing large tracts of valuable
ironbearing lands, in the region between the
Blue Ridge and the Greenbrier river. There
is an area of 20H miles in width by 120 in
length, through the middle of which pascss
the Chesepeake and Ohio Railroad, which,
probably contains iron enough to supply the
United States for the next thousand yearn
Beyond it, in the Kanahwa Valley, are de
posits of coal especially adapted for iron
smelting and steam purposes, upon which a
thoosand years demand will leave scarcely
an impression. The extension of the Chesa
peake and Ohio Road is now building
through this valley.
With her system of internal communica
tions completed, Virginia will be able to
reach with iron bands, northward, to the
lumber and grains of the Lakes. Westward,
to the Mississippi, with its stores of provis
ions, and southward, to the cotton fields of
Tennessee and Arkansas. She will then be
enabled to unite upon her own soil, the va
rious elements for great agricultural and
manufacturing eminence, and be raised in
her activity, as she is already politically
among the progressing labor-inviting Staets-
The Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad, which
for many years received the support and aid
of the State, is rapidly being completed
from its terminus, at the White Sulphur
Springs, to the Ohio River. Upwards ot
6,000 men are at work on the line. Messrs.
Fisk k Hatch, the reliable Bankers of New
Yok, who are the Financial Agents of the
Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad Company,
report very satisfactory sales of the Loan.
The Bonds as will be seen by their announce
ment elsewhere, are still to be had at the
same rate, and exchanges of other Securi
ties for these Bonds arc made at the best

Hon John Cessna.
In February last, the Republicans of
Bedford County, Pa. assembled in Mass
Meeting, and, among other things, unani
mously recommended the gentleman whose
name heads this article "to the Republicans
of the District for re-nomination."
This, viewed merely in the light of jus
tice, is nothing more than they were bound
to do according to paity custom, usage and
procedure. But, underlying, or over and
controlling the assemblage, was the graver
and more important principle that, in this
age, honesty and moral worth, together
with ability, efficiency, decision and energy
of character, owing to their firm hold on the
public miod, demand their due appreciation
and cannot be disregarded with impunity.
Genial Jack Cessna, as he is fondly called
bv those who love him most, althongh a
new member, is quietly, but certainly, mak
ing his mark in Congress; and the heads of
the various Departments of the government
acknowledge his great worth hy the de
ference and respect they show him. They
know full well that he is working zealously
and successfully foT the welfare of the great
party that now controls the political inter
ests of the country.
The people of his district have great
reason to be proud of their Representative.
I hope they fully appreciate his worth.
He deserves, and should receive, the friend
ship, good-will and hearty support of every
Reared a democrat—a recognized leader
in the democratic party—enjoying high
political favors at its giving—obtaining and
retaining a no common celebrity among
politicians and statesmen everywhere—pos
sessing the rare quality of adapting himself
to every class of mind, and by his eloqnenoe,
tact, and power, commanding alike the
learned and the unlearned, he was a rapidly
rising man in the party which, ere its over
throw, ruled the country almost to its ruin.
When the rebellion came, and the prin
ciples of human freedom were assailed by
physical force, the energy of the man be
gan to folly develop itself, and his amazing
practical power to be felt. He joined the
Republican Party. Honest and patriotic,
he could Dot do otherwise. It was not in
bis nature to falsify his past record; and
therefore, with an honesty that was prool
against the blandishments of power and the
plottings of demagogues, he yielded a
cheerful obedience to the law of moral ac
tion which is inseperably connected with
the highest usefulness of man to man—
threw himself into the breach, and stood
among the foremost in resistance to the
wily and menacing doctrines and despotic
acts of those who would have ruined the
government and its institutions, and reared
in their stead the unhallowed temple of a
We have thought, and still think there is
much in the individuality of Mr. Cessna,
calculated to impart instruction to tho
young Statesman and politician.
A modest simplicity—an unvarying
sincerity—reliance on Provide coo—a manly
assumption of trust—faithful execution of
duty, and a foil 'emembraooc of all the
relative duties of life, make up bis character,
and establish his oomraanding worth, im
perishable as honor itself.
These are attributes well befitting a
christian Statesman and pelitusiao; and be
who has such a foundation to rest the
superstructure of his political aspirations
upon, will not be found ''wanting when
weighed in the balance."
Poeacasing these attributes, we never
find John Cessna trencluog upon right—
never detect him in sacrificing his manhi>od
—forsaking consecrated truth, justice, and
right, nor abandoning the principles livid
down fur bis own government To these
attributes, in a high degree, we must at
tribute the unvarying success which mails
the political career of this gentleman. True,
this success has not been obtained without
a struggle. The friends of error and wioog
ate at all times powerful, and deal tasty
blows; and when he ficd from the party
whose natural balance is the practical re
pudiation of aU that is great and good,
while it falsely claims for itself superior
virtue, he was maligned, his motives
questioned, his character assailed—his vir
tue defamed, and time and again he was
subjected to the scurrility of political black
guards who make slander a part of their
profession. Nor was this all. Interested
partizans too, for selfish purposes, did
what they could, safely, to crowd down and
keep back the man whom they should have
hailed with joy and nphcld with might.
But all this proved to be no "lion in the
way," and Mr. Cessna has gone heedfully
but boldly ahead, coming forth from the
trial as gold with twice his former value,
and with a consciousness of power to which
he was before a stranger.
If he bear subsequent trials with the
same spirit, and follow resolutely in the
path of upright duty, and, (judging his
future by his past,) we have no doubt he
will, then, every question of his advanc
ment is forever settled, and settled in his
favor. Men are thinking beings, and not
raeic pieces of mechanism —or, what is
I little better-, the mere creatures of habit or
! slaves of custom. They compare those to
whom they delegate trust and power, as re
gards their end and aim, to the good which
is likely to flow from a general exercise of
that trust and power and if after making
due allowance for the fallibility of human
nature, they see that the common weal will
be promoted by the actions of their public
servants, the disappointments of the place
hunter, jealousy, personal hatred, tbe plot
ting of faction, and intrigue, will not be al
lowed to violate and crush out the high re
gard in which they hold those servants;
but, that power behind the throne, and
which is greater than the throne—the
people, uniting at an altar of common in
terest, will throw around their worthy ser
vants the mantle of their protection, and
defy the envious, and the disaffected, to do
To specific facts in the political career of
Mr. Cessna, we have not alluded in this
paper. We did not intend to do so. But,
with your permission. Mr. Editor, we will,
at some future time, refer to them in detail
for the information of those of your readers
who have not had the opportunity of
knowing fully the history of him who so
ably represents them in Congress.

amendment of Mr. Ross, to take the land

and give them to certain railroads in Kan
sas at specified sums, giving settlers on the
reservation the right to purchase one

Mr. Morrill, of Maine, spoke against the

amended and passed.
NORTHERN PACIFIC KAIBOAD HILL.
The Senate bill authorizing the Northern
Pacific Railroad Company to issue its bonds
for the construction of the road and to se
cure (he wtme by mortage, comming up,
Mr. Wfceetar raovod to put the bill on its
passage and addressed the House in advo
cacy of it.
Mr. Ha winy proposed to offer an amend
ment requiring all the land granted to the
company to be sold to actual settlers only,
and in quantities not greater than one hun
dred and sixty acres to any person, and for
a price not exceeding two dollars and a half
per acre, and made an argument in support
of that proposition.
Mr. Wilsou of Minn., opposed the amend
ment, and denounced the bill and the land
grant system as wrong in principle and an
outrage on the taxpayers. This road bad
already received 45,000,000 acres of public
land, and this bill proposes to give it 2,250,-
000 more. He supposed, however, that it
would be passed, for he thought he saw in
that provision of it which required Ameri
can raits to be used in the road, a combina
tion between land speculators and Lifb pro
tectionists, and he estimated that Mr.
Wheeler, Chaiiman of the Pacific Rairoad
Committee of the Whole on the Tariff bill,
leDt his aid to that combination.
After some further discussion Mr. Wheel

was seconded —78 to 59, excluding all the

GENERAL JORDAN—THE Ct/li AN
A full and authoritative statement frim
Geo. Jordan, for more than a year past
commander in chief of the Cuban patriots,
gives as a clear comprehension of 'he
situation in Cuba and an explanation of the
difficulties surrounding the struggling He
public. General Jordan has returned to
this city, but not, as has been charged, in
abandonment of the cause of the patriots.
On the contrary, he comes as the agent ot
their Government, and hopeful of their u ti
raate success through their present guerrilla
like operations, even though unaided from
abroad. He declares that there is no lack
of patriots eager for service under the Re
public unable to obtain arms, and that the
negroes and Coolies willingly tight under
the banner of revolution, and make soldiers
not inferior to the best. The countrv is
fully supplied with provisions—amply able,
indeed, to support an army equal to all the
requirements of th'e Republic. The Spanish
troops, with great barbarity, have destroyed
many valuable plantations, and, with unpar
ulleled ferocity, butchered hundreds of the
inhabitants; but they can hope to cut off
neither the supplies of soldiers nor food.
What Cuba lacks is material of war in the
shape of arms and ammunition, and this
only. To obtain such supplies is the main
purpose for which Gen. Jordan returns to
this country. He has no doubt that if arms
end ammunition are had, an army of patri
ots fully adequate to cope with the 40,0)0
Spanish troops on the island can soon he
raised, and with them he believes Havana
can be besieged in three months.
It is clearly evident—not so much from
the statement of Gen. Jordan as from othjr
general information—that the affairs of the
Cuban Republic have been mismanaged, it
home and abroad. Its army has been di
vided; military operations have beencarri'd
out upon no general plan, and the discipline
is plainly not as commendable as the bravery
displayed by the troops. But there has
been dereliction of duty elsewhere, and all
the more to be condemned because tie
difficulties of performing well that duty
were less than on the immediate scene of
strife. The business of the Republic, fcr
instance, has been mismanaged by the Juma
which sits in this city. We have given th*t
body, and do still give it credit for the zeal
which it has displayed for the cause of Cu
ban liberty and the energy employed in
furthering it. But the Junta has not been
as discreet as it was zealous, and much ofits
effort has been wasted in ill-considered en
terprises. Perhaps we shall see a. improve
ment in this matter, should Gen Jordan,
who is acquainted with both countries and
peoples, assume the direction of Cuban
matters here. Arms ought to be furnished
the struggling patriots, and we have not a
doubt that UDtier Gen. Jordan's direction
they will be obtained and forwarded. To
this end, as to the most pressing and im
portant need, tbe Cuban patriots in America
ought now to devote themselves. — N. Y.

Arrival of the JhxloubtaMe General at Keto
York on a Brief I 'Uit—Hi* View of the
Situation in Cuba.
NEW YORK, May 6. —General Thomas
Jordan, late commaoder-in chief of the Cu
ban insurgents, arrived in the MOITO Castle
from Havana this morning and proceeded to
the residence of Henor Lemus, the Cuban
Minister to this country, to deliver impor
tant dispatches. Gen. Jordan is accotupa
nied by Col. Costillo, Maj. Betancourt and
other officers of the Cuban army, and after
a visit to Washington will return to Cub*.
His stay in this country, which has reference
to procuring munitions of war. will be brief.
Gen. Jordan reports that the Cuban cause
is in better condition than at any previous
stage and the success of the revolution de
pends only on time. The Cuban army now
numbers 10,000 men. well armed, equipped
and supplied with artillery and mountain
howitzers sufficient for the present needs of
service. The season is now in favor of the
revolutionists, giving them what they most
need, time for organization and collection of
supplies. There are not over eighty for
eigners io the Cuban army. Gen. Jordan
says that the Cubans are in no way discour
aged at the prospect, and that the Spaniards
have lost their opportunity for putting down
the revolution. Gen. Jordan left Cuba in a
small sloop, and, when three days out, was
chased by five steam gunboats, but a storm
arising he made his escape.
fMuetioh of Internal Taxation.
WASHINGTON, May 6.— Secretary Bout
well, in conference with the Senate Finance
Committee, was informed of their proposed
tnode of reducing internal taxation, and was
asked for his views thereon. It was agreed
to repeal the tax on a'l articles except whisky
tobacco, statu ps and incomes. It is believed
the repeal ol the tax on articles enumerated
in the bill, which includes sales, licenses,
gross receipts, special taxes of all kinds,
manufacturers, Ac., wi l redue the revenue
about forty millions. Secretary Boutwell
said he would not object to the increase of
exemption from income tax to two thousand
dollars, as it would not reduce the revenue
more than four or five millions. The Com
mittee favors a reduction of the tax to three
per cent, but it is opposed to any reduc
tion of exemption. The proposed bill, it
seems, does not meet the views of the Ways
and Means Committee. They will not eon
sent to allow the income tax to remain at
the present rate, and have virtually agreed
to reduce the tax to three per cent., and in
create the exemption to two tnousand dol
lars. This will be strougly foughl when it
comes up for consideration in the House,
but the impression prevails that it can be
GENERAL NEWS ITEMS.
THE Boston Advertiser reports that at
Maehiasport, Me., in the harbor opposite
the wharves, there is frequently an uphea
val, by some power altogether unknown, of
vast quantities of water, mud and stones,
to the distance of many feet, and with a fu
rious rushing noise. This phenomenon
occurred quite a number of times during the
last Summer, and once as late as a month
A POWDER TEST. —A Canadian didn't
believe a keg of powder which he had just
received was good, so he threw a coal of fire
into it. Several ef the shingles of the roof
wen: found, smuggled across the river into
America. It is also bellieved the man has
emigrated, as he has not been seen at borne
since the occurrence, although one of his
legs was found in Lower Canada.
THE leading Canadian papers now seem
to think that Canada has been imposed up
on in regard to the Fenian business. They
have come to the conclusion that there was
no' invasion projected or intended, and they
charge the Dominion Government with hav
ing stirred up the wai like fever for their
own purpose. The Canadian papers are
probably right in this matter; and we think
the people ought to hold the Dominion
Government responsible for raising a false
alarm which might hrve produced extreme
ly damaging results.
IT seems reasonably sure that an Indian
war is impending, and that active hostilities
will soon be begun. The Administration
has promptly taken vigorous action, and
ordered all the available military force to
the plains. If we are to have trouble, a
vigorous policy is undoubtedly the wisest,
and will prove most human in the cud.
The old story of justice and bad faith to
ward the Indians by the whites lies at
the bottom of the present trouble. It is a
sad commentary upon our boasted civiliza
tion that we should be so constantly ag
gressive toward so feeble a race, and that
we should be continually exasperating them
to acts of retaliation and revenge only to
make it necessary to chastise them. The
process has been going on many yeare, and
it is time some statesmanlike policy was at
CAPTAIN KIDD'S TREASURE.—WhiIe ex
cavating for the foundations of a new bridge
over the canal near Trenton, N. J., on Tues
day afternoon, a quantity of treasure in the
shape of old coins of much value was uneath
ed. One of the workmen threw up eighteen
pieces of gold, vaued at #IOO, and, overjoy
ed, threw reigns, and all the idlers from
Trenton are watching the laborers. Many
of the poor diggers have been quite lucky.
One of the coins bears date of 1732, and all
of them seem to be Spanish. A piece of
very pure metal has two castles on one side,
and two lions on the reverse, with the letters
S. B. V. and P. V. A. Under them are the
figures 7,4,1, and over the V. a figer 8.
Some think that the coin was buried by the
Hessians; but, from the coins beiDgSpanish
that seems impossible, and it may be a part
of the long-sought Kidd treasure.
SML'UUU.NU OPICM.—A letter has been
received at tbe Treasury Department from
the Collecter of Customs at San Francisco,
triving an account of the methods adopted
by the Chinese to smuggle opium into this
country. Every crack and crevice of a ves
sel, as well as every particle of clothing not
likely to be examined, become receptacles
for tbe great narcotic of commerce. It is
twisted iuto the forms ot roots and nuts, and
sometimes is ingeniouslv put up as packages
of agricultural seeds. It is also packed in
tea lead, and made into balls with strings
attached. These are sunk near the ship,
and when the sails arc drawn up, hidden
on board. When the last steamer arrived
from Hong Kong tbe revenue officials went
fishing for these spheres of somnolence and
captured a case of them containing seven
hundred of these balls, encasing four hun
dred pounds of opium,
