It combines all the advantages of the best

By reason of its greater concentration, we re

Hence its economy,.

flour, which adds 100 per ct. to its value. It
is es rick and active as acid dissolved bone,
hence its, value Is vastly greater, becaise it
contains neither acid nor water, which neces
sarily add weight, and reduce the ogantity of

to him an official copy of the proceedings
of the convention, headed by a band of
music, reached the 'White House about 1
o'clock on the 18th ult. They were con
ducted into the East Room by Marshal
Gooding, and so arranged as to form a
circle. The delegates to the convention
who Were in the city were thou ushered

Raverdy Johnson. of :daryland, who had
been selected as seaman of the com
mittee, then advanced, and, in an elo
quent speech, presented the President
with an authenticated copy of the pro
ceedings of the convention. President
Johnson, in reply, spoke as follows :
Tab: COMMITTEE:—Language is inade
quate to express the emotions and feel
ings produced by this occasion. ePerhaps
I could express more by allowing silence
to speak and you to infer what I ought to
say. I confess that, notwithstanding the
experience I have had in public life, mid
the audiences T have addressed, this occa
sion and this assemblage are well calcu
lated to, and do overwhelm me. sks I
have said, I have not language to convey
adequately my present feelings and emo
tions. In listening hi the tuldres% which
your eloquent and distinguished chair
man has just delivered, the proceedings
of the convention, as they transpired, re
curred to my Mind. Seemingly I par
took of the inspiration that prevailed in
the convention when I received a dis
patch sent by two, of its distinguished
members, conveying in tertns the scene
which has just been described of South
Carolina and Massachusetts; arm in arni,
marching into that vast assemblage, and
thus gieing evielenee that the two ex
tremes had come together, and that for

been in the past, for the preservation of
the Union. When the dispatches in
formed me that in that vast body of men,
distinguished for Intellect and wi4dom,
every eye was suffused With tears 00 be
holding the scene, I could not finish
reading the dispatch to one associated
with me in the °Mee, for my own feel
ings overcame me. (('heers.) I think
that we may justly conclude that we are
moving under a proper Inspiration, and
tat we need not be mistaken, that the
finger of all Overruling and Unerring
Provijenee is In this matter. (Loud
cheers.) The nation is in peril. 'We
have passed through a mighty, a bloody,
a Momentous ordeal, yet do not find our
selves free from the dillieulties anti dan
gers that at first surrounded us. While
our brave men have performed their du
ties, both officers and men (turning to
General Grant, who stood at his right,)
while they have won laurels imperisha
ble, there are still greeter and more im
hortant duties to perform; and while we
ave had their cu-operation in the field,
tve‘noW need their support in our eflbrts
to perpetuate peace. (Loud eheere.)
far as the Executive Department of the
Government is concerned, the effort has
been made to restore the Cuion, to heal
the breach, to pour oil into the wounds
which were consequent upon the strug
gle, and, to speak in common phrase, to
prepare, as the learned and wise physici
an would, a plastery healing in character
and co-extensive with the wound. (Loett
cheers.) We thought, and yet think,
that we had partially succeeded, but as
the work progresses, as reconciliation
seemed to be taking piece, end the coun
try becoming united, we feline a disturb

In alluuiee to that 4-lenient f shall go no
further than did your convention mid the
distinguished gentleman Who has deliv
ered to the the report of the proeeedeugs.
I shall make no reference to it which the
the time and the occasion do not keel fy.
We have witnessed ht one departmeut of
the Government every effort, as it were,
to prevent the restoration of peace and
harmony in the Union. We have seen
hanging on the verge°, the Government,
as it were, a hotly called, or which as
sumes to be, the Congress of the United
States—but, in fact,- a Congress of only
part of the States. We have eceu this
Congress assume and pretend to be for
the lJniou, when its every step and act
tended to perpetuate disunion, and make
a disruption of the Statee inevitable. In
stead of promoting reconciliation and
harmony, its legislation has partaken of
the character of penalties, retaliation and
revenge. This hes been the course and
polite- of one department of your Gov
ernment. The • humble individual who
is now addressing you stand-, the repre
sentative of another department of the
Government. The manner in which lie
was tailed upon to oecqpy that position,
I shall not allude to on this occasion :
suffice it to say that he Is hereunder the
Constitution of the country, anti being
here by virtue of its provisious, he takes
his stand upon the eh: - ter of our liberties
as the great rampart of civil and religi
ous liberty. (Loud cheers.) Having
been taught in In) , early life to hold it
sacred, and having, practiced upon it du
ring the whole or my public career, I
shall ever continue to reverence that
Constitution,e-the. Conetitution of the
Fathers of our Couutry—and to make it
my guide. (Cheers.) I know it has seen
sqd, and I must be permitted to indulge
In the remark, that the Executive De
partment of the Government has been
tyrannical. Let rue ask this audience of
distinguished gentlemen around me here
to-day to point to a vote I ever gave, to a
speech I ever made, to a single act of my
whole public life, that has not been
against tyranny and despotism. What
position have I ever occupied, what
ground have I ever assumed, that it can
be truthfully charged that I • failed to ad
vocate the amelioration and elevation of
the great masses of my countrymen 7
(Cries of "Never," and great applause.)
So far as charges of that kind are eon
corned, I will say that they are simply
intended to deceive and delude the pule
lie mind into the belief that there lissome
one in power whaes usurping and tramp
ling upon the rights and prevertiug the
principles of the Constitution. It is done
by those who make• such charges for the
purpose of covering their own acts.—
(Cries of "That's so," and Owens.) I
have felt it my duty', in vindication of
principle and the Constitution of my
country, to call ettentiom to these pro
ostedinge. When we come to examine
who has been playing the tyrant, by
whom do we find thateleepotisna has been
exercised? As to myself, the elements
of my 'nature, stile pursuits of say life,
have not made me, either 411 My feellnge

ken my stand upon the broad principles
of liberty and the Constitution, there is
not power enough on earth to drive me
from it. (Prolonged cheering.) Having
placed myself upon that broad platform,
havtenot been awed, dismayed or in
timidated by either threats or earoach
meuts, but have stood there, in conjunc
tion with patriotic spirits, sounding the
' tocsin of alarm whenever I deemed the
citadel of liberty in danger. (Great ap
plause.) I said on a previeus occasion,
and repeat now, that all that was IleCeS•
sary in the greatstruggle against tyranny
and despotism was, that the struggle
should be sufficiently audible for the
American people to hear and understand.
They did hear, and looking on and see
ing alto the mute-Aunts were and what
the struggle was about, they determined
they would settle the question on the side
of the C'onstitut ion and mil kelpie. (Cries
of "That's so," and applause.) I pro
claim here to-day, as I have on other
occasions, that may fau lt is aidding in the
great mass of the people. in the darkest
moment of the struggle, when the clouds
seemed to be .roost lowering, my faith,
instead of giving way, loomed up through
the dark clombilar beyond-1 saw that all
would be safe in the end. (Cheers.) My
countrymen, we all know, that in the
language of Thomas Jefferson, "tyranny
mind despotism even can be exercised and
exerted more effectually by the many
Than the ruled' We have seen a Congre:,
gradually crtroaeli, step by stein, upon
constitutional rights, and violate, day
after day, and month after month, the
fundamental principles of the Govern
ment. (Cries of "That's so !") - _We have
seen a Congress that seemed to forget
that there was a Constitution of the Uni
ted States, and that there was a limit to
the sphere and scope of legislation. (Re
newed cries of "That's so.") We have
seen a Congrem in it minority assume to
exercise powers which, if allowed to be
carried out, would result in despotism or
monarchy itself. (Cries of "That's so,"
and enthusiastic cheeni for the President.)
This is truth; and because others as well
as myself have seen proper to appeal to
the patriotism and republican feeling of
the country, we have been denounced in
the most severe terms. Slander upon
slander, vituperation 'upon vituperation,
of the most villainous character, has made
its way through the public. press.
What, gentlemen, has been your and
my sin ? What has been the cause of
our offending? I will tell you—daring
to stand by the Constitution of our fath
ers. (Loud cheers.)
The President here approached the
spot where Senator Johnson was-Aft:au&
ing, and said :
I consider the proceedings Of this con
vention, sir, as moreimportant than those
of any convention that ever assembled in
the United States. When I Intik with
my mind's eye upon that collection of
Citizens, coining together voluntarily, ant)
sitting in council, with ideas, with prin
ciples and views commensurate with all
the States, and co-extensive with the
whole people, and contrast it with the
collection of men who are trying to de
stroy the country, I regard it as more
important than any convention that has
sat at least since 1787. (Loud cheers.) I
think I may say, also, that the declara
tions that were there made are equal With
the Declafation of Independence itself,
(cries of "glorious," and most enthusias
tic and prolonged applause), and here,
to-day I pronounce it a second Declaration
of Independence. Your addre4;s and dee
rations arc nothing more or less than a
re-affirmation of the Constitution of the
United States. (Cries of "good," and
cheers.) Yes, I Avill go further, and say
that the declarations you have made,
that the principles you have enunciated
in youraddress, are n seeond proclamation
of emancipation to the people of the
United States—for in proclaiming and
reproelaiming these great truths you
have laid down a 'constitutional platform
upon which all can make common cause,
and stand together for the restoration of
the States and the preservation of the
government without reference to party.
(Cheers.) The question only Is the sal
vation of the country, for oar country
rises above all party considerations or
Mr. Chairman, I have said more than
1 intended ti Hay. For the kind allusions
to myself contained in your address and
in the resoiutions adopted by the conven
tion, let me remark that, in this crisis,
and at this period of my odd lc life, I hold
uisive all price, and shall ever recur with
feelings of profound gratification to the
last resolution, containing the indorse
ment of a convention emanating. sponta
neously from the great mass of thepeople.
I trust and hope that my future action
may be such that you and the convention
may not regret the assurance of confidence
you have expressed in me. Before sepa

At the conclusion of the President's
remarks, three cheers were enthusiastic
ally given for Andrew Johnson, and
three more for General Grant. The
President and Gen. Grant then retired
arm-in-arm, and the committee and the
audience gradually dispersed.

Tem/fury Department, Washington,
Aur.4 ; 1860.-81 r: In answer to yours of
the Ist insL, I have to say that the tax on
cigars, &c., is to be assessed upon the
price they are sold, if such price is esta
blished by a bona tide sale ; if not,'•upon
an appraised value, or the value at which
cigars, &c., of like quality, are selling in
the market.
If the cigars are sold for $8 per \f. the
tax is 82 per M.; if they are sold for $lO
per M. the tax is $4 per M.
Cigars sold for more Riau $l2 per M. are
liable to $4, more than 011 e-filth of the
price they are sold for, - as tax. Cigars,
&c., soil for $lB, 82), 821, 830, $5O $BO
or 8100 per M. are liable tos7 60, $B, £+B 80,
$lO, $l4, $2O, 824, respectively, of tax.—
The excl,e law does not recognize a

which excludes the tax. Yours, respect
