of bribing liim, so as to allow her hus

The Times Almanac We nogloct

If thj reader will run bis eye ovor
tho table, he will observe thut the ex-
tromo viows of the Assessors, in tbo
boroughs, moot in Houudale and Lum
ber City. In the formor,tho averago is
30 per cent. Mow, and the other 8-1 por
cent above the standard fixed by . the
thirty-fivo Assessors. In the town
ships it culminates in Boggs and Chost.
Tho former is 31 per cent, above, and
in tho latter 36 per cent Mote tho rate
fixed. It will bo noticed that but two
of the Assessors Clearfield and K art-
bans "hit the nail on the head," while
a number of others fell a few dollars
below and above.
Moro : It tho Commissioners accept
tho Assessors work as a finality, the
owners of tho forty-four horses in Lum
ber City would be compelled to pay 64
per cent, moro county tax than tho
owners of a similar number in Iloutz
dalo. But tho Board will roduco the
former 34 per cent, and raiso the lat
ter 32 por cent., and thereby produce
equality. Tho cont-rate botwoen Boggs
and Chost is still greater, being about
67 per cent.. In othor worje : If the
Board of Revision would allow tbo As
sessors work to pass, the owners of the
144 horses in Boggs township, would
bo compelled to pay 64 17 county tax,
while tho owners of a similar number
of horses in Chost township, would on
ly pay 137, or, if wo take a single
horse, tho tax in the former township,
is fortisi ornft por htMil, and in thA
lattor, twenty-five cents. Now, what the
Board proposes to do, is to mako each
pay about thirty-five cents., by raising
thoono,and lowering the other "grad
ing" the assessment like thoy do a rail
road track, bringdown the highland
raise the low.
A RATIONAL LXSULT.
Grant's administration was potent
enough to intimidate the witnesses and
tamper with tho St. Louis jury, and
thoroby secure the acquittal ot Grant's
bosom "butty," Babcock, but it had
not the power to overawe and defy a
Democratic Congress and koep in high
position that national scoundrel, Gen.
Bolknap, who deserve to be bung, in
stead of being morcly disfranchised
and disgraced. We are opposed to
hanging mon for personal crimes ; but
when an ofBcor of this Government
takes an oath to dischargo bis public
duties faithfully, and then turns around
and botrays every trust confided to
him, he deserves hanging. The Sec
retary of war did not commit a person
al offence like those of tho ordinary
blackguards, or highwaymen, but ho
has wickedly and maliciously robbed,
insulted, and disgraced every man,
woman and child in America, and for
this crime against tho pooplo, ho do
servos to suffer death. Thore is no
atonoment for high crimes nnd misde
meanors, such as this culprit has com
mitted, except annihilation. Some
thing of this kind is noccssary to put
a stop to this wholesale system ot offi
cial corruption, If it is not stopped
soon, this nation will never soe another
Centennial. The entrusting of tho of
ficers of Church and State, to such
men as Boochor, Grant, Bolknap '& Co.
fifteen years ago has well nigh
wrought our ruin, morally, financially,

cle in detail will be found In our issue
of last week, for which,. Hon. Goorgo
A. Jonks, of Brookvillo, is entitlod to
ten thousand thanks, for discovering
and exposing tho frauds committed in
tho Pension Bureau.
The economy feature of Grantism
will be understood when wo state tho
fact that tho Bureau omployed only
175 officers and clerks in 1866, and
that that number adjusted 50,000
claims. Now, in 1876, 4t0 are em.
ployed, and that number succoodod in
ad ins tin if 12,000 claims. Jlow is that
for. oconomy f Tho Government pay
ing 420 mon for doing less than ono-
fourth the wqrk 175 men did ton years
ago! Suppose a farraor, or any othor

holiest people, and its lessons areas
valuable now as thoy were then. Ho
took up the subject of th debt of
Great Britain, and demonstrated thut
it was that and Its vicious manage
ment that caused the wide spread pov
erty 4.hat then pervaded Knglund. Let
mo quota some of his teachings, for be
wo a true friend of tho puoplo, be
cause he was ono of them himself, and
was punished for speaking iu tboir de
fense. Ho first shows tno increase of
tbo national debt ; then tho incretise of
the expenses of the Government, and
thon what necessarily follows tlio in
crease. of the taxes to pay these ex
penses. Ho thon says:
"The tendency of taxation is to orento
a class of persons who do not labor,
to take from those who dolubor, tho pro
duce of that labor, nnd to give it to those
who do not lalftr. Tho produuo taken
away is in this case totally destroyed,
but if it were expended or consumed
amongst thoso who labor, it would
produce something in its stead. There
would bo moro or butler cloth, moro
or bettor houses, and these would be
more generally distributed ; whilst the
growth of vico, which idleness always
engenders and fosters, would bo pre
vented. If, by tho gripe of taxation,
every grain of tht-iurplus produce of
a country bo taken from the lowest
class of thoso who labor, they will
have tho means of bare existence left.
Of cotirso, their clothing and tboir
dwellings will bccono miserable, t'leir
food bhd or in stilted quantity ; for
that surplus produce, which should go
to tho making of an addition to their
meal, and to creating of things lor their
use will bo annihilated by those who do
nothing but enl. Suppose, for instance,
a community" to consist of a farmer,
four cottagers, a tailor, a shoemaker,
a smith, a fuincnter and a mason, and
that tho Itiiu produced enough lor
them all and no more. Supposo this
little community to bo seized with a
desiro to imitato., their bolters, and to
keep a siDocuro placeman, giviirr him
a tenth of their produce, which thoy
formerly gavo to their shoemaker.
Tho consequence would bo that poor
Crispin would die, and they would go
bare footed, with tho consolation of re
flecting that they had brought them-
selvos into t hi state, from the silly
vanity of keeping an tdlo man. lint
suppose the land to yield enough food
tor all ton ol mora, anil enough lor two
moro besides. They have this, then,
besides what is absolutely necessary to
supply their wants. Thoy can spare
one ol their men from tho Held, and
havo besitles food enough to keep him
in aomo olhjr situation. Now, which
is the best, to mako bim a socond car
penter, who, in return fur his food,
would give thom additional and per
manent convenience and comfort in
their dwellings: or, tomnkobim asine-
ouro placeman or a singer, in either of
which placos be would bo an annihila
tiirofcorn, at tho samo time that, in
enso of emergency, he would not bo
half so able to defend the community ?
Supposo two of the cultivators hecamo
sinecure placoman, then you kill tho
carpenters, or some ono else, or, what
is mora' likely, nil tbo laboring part ol j
the community ; that is to say, all but'
tho sinecure placemen, live mora mis
erably, in dress, in dwelling,' and in
food. This reasoning, applied to tens,
applies equally to mdliuns, tho causes
and effects being, in tho lattor ease, on
ly a llltlo moro difficult to trace, nucb
is tbo way in which Uixes operate, the
distinction botwowu wkiob operation
and tho operation- of rents being
this, that in the latter Caso, you receive
something ol which you havo the par
ticular enjoyment, wbat you givo, and
in the former caso, you recoivo nothing.
It isTy no moans to bo understood,
that there should be no person to live
without what is generally called labor.
Physicians, parsons, lawyor, and oth
ers in the higher callings of life, do in
fact labor, and it is right that there
should be a person of great estate, and
without any profession at all, but then
you will find that them pontons do not
fine upon the earnings of others, thoy all
of thom give something in return for
what they receive Those of the loam
ed professions give tho vse of their tal
ents and skill, and the landlord gives the
use of his land or his houses."
"Nor ought wo to look upon all tax
es as so much of tbo first of our labor
lost,ortakon away without cause. Tax
es are necosaary iu every community,
and tho man, whethor ho be States
man, Soldier or Sailor, who is in the
service of the community, givos his ser
vices in return lor that portion of the
taxes which he receive. I am not
talking against tares in general, nor,
indeed, will 1 stop here' to inquire
whether out taxos, at their prosont
amount be nccossary, or whether by oth
er counsels, they miijht, in qreat part at
least, have been avoided. These ques
tions which, for the prosont, I will
wholly pass ovor, my object being to
come at a correct opinion with regard
to tho effect of heavy taxation upon tho
people who have to support It, reserv
ing for another opportunity my re
marks abd opinions as to tho necessity
ot such taxation In our particular caso."
By national prosperity the writers
above alluded to moan somotliing very
different Indocd from thnt which you
and I, who have no desire to live upon
tho taxos, should call national pros
perity. They look upon it, as, at least,
they would have ns look upon it as
being demonstrated in tho increase of
tho .numbor of chariot nnd of fine
dressed pooplo in and about the purl
oins of tho court : wberons, reflection
will not fail to teaoh us, that this Ii a
demonstration of the increns of tbo
taxes, and nothing moro.
Nationnl prosperity shows itself in
very different ways : In tbo plentiful
meal, the comfortable dwelling, the
decent lurnlturo and dross, the healthy
and happy countenances, and tho good
morals of tho laboring classes of the
peojiio. I noso are tho ways In winch
national prosperity shows itself: and,
whatever is not attended with these
siirm, ia not national prosperity. Need
1 ask you, thon, if heavy taxation bo
calculated to produce llioso effects T

1800, was but sixty live million dollars
