To oiR SUBSCRlßEßS. —Subscribers to the
REPORTER will hereafter receive their papers
with the address printed thereon, with the
date of the expiration of their subscription.
This is done by means of DICK'S Patent
Newspaper Addressing Machine, a simple,
but very ingenious instrument. They will
ou the reception of every week's issue, be
informed at what time their subscription
expires, and be enabled to renew the same,
if desired, before the paper is stopped
We shall hereafter stop all papers at the
expiration of the subscription, unless other
wise ordered. The price at which the RE
PORTER is furnished, but barely cover the
cost of the paper upon which it is printed,
and to lose one subscription is to sink the
profit on a dozen subscriptions received.—
Subscribers certainly cannot complain that
they do not have fair warning as each week
they receive notice that at such a date their
paper will stop.
We noticed, lately a capital illustration
of the folly of attempting to publish a pa
per on the credit system, which our farmer
friends will readily understand and appreci
ate. Suppose a farmer raises two thousand
bushels of wheat, which he sells at $2 per
bushel, to 2000 different persons on credit.
How would he come out, in the end, when
he attempted to get his pay of his two
' thousand different customers scattered all
j over the County? Would any sensible
j farmer do business in this way ?
Similar is the position of the publisher
who attempts to print a newspaper nowa
days on another plan except that of advance
TRADE BETWEEN THE STATES.
The Constitution confers on Congress the right
to regulate commerce among the several States. It
is of the first necessity, for the maintenance of the
Union, that commerce should be free and unob
structed. No State can he justified in any device to
; tax the transit of travel and commerce between
i States. The position of many Stutes is such that,
if they were allowed to take advantage of it for
1 purposes of local revenue, the commerce between
; States might be injuriously burdened, or even vir
j tually prohibited. It is best while the country is
i still young, and while the tendency to dangerous
monopolies of this kind is still feeble, to use the
j power of Congress so as to prevent any selfish im
j pediment to the free circulation of men and nier
! ehandise. A tax on travel and merchandise, in
th ir transit, constitutes one of the worst forms
j of monopoly, and the evil is increased if coupled
i with a denial of the choice of route. When the
vast extent of our country is considered, it is plain
! that every obstacle to the free circulation of com
j merce between the States ought to be sternly guar
ded against by appropriate legislation, within the
■ limits of the constitution.
Among the many good things said by
President Johnson in his first Annual Mes
sage to Congress, none is more worthy of
note than the foregoing on the Internal
Commerce between the States. This para
graph is especially applicable to this local
ity at the present time,and is indeed,worthy
| of serious consideration over the entire
j country now that the question <>f interchan
ges, of reciprocal rights and duties between
the respective States of the Union, as to be
entered on anew. Let all causes the least
calculated to interfere with the future pros
perity, or the relations of amity between
the States, be now removed as far as pos
sible, su that, each may he led into the ha
bitual policy of consulting the interests,
and the good-will of all the others. Then
indeed, will we be strong and glorious,
and united in perpetuity.
Bu; that which gives especial interest to
the citizens of this senatorial district in
this brief extract from the President's Mes
sage, is the fact that the Tonnage Tax,over
which wo have had a warm controversy, is
one of the measures which the President
considers inconsistent with the provisions
of the constitution of the United States,
and dangerous to the best interests of the
Union That Tax was imposed for the pur
: pose of replenishing the coffers of the State
Treasury : and at the time of its imposit
ion no question was raised as t< its effects
. upon the commerce of other States, so in
different were we both to their interests
and good-will. Nor did we care to learn
that it infringed upon the Constitution.—
The State looked only to her pecuniary in
terests in the matter. She had constructed
a line of Public improvements along the
projected route of the Pennsylvania R. R.,
at a monstrous expense, crippling herself,
and burdening the labor of the State with
an almost insupportable tax. It was tho't
the Rail Road would interfere with the bu
siness of the State Canals, and thereby re
duce the revenue from them to the State.
Accordingly, almost ill the people of the
State acquiesed in the measure of imposing
i a tax upon the tonnage, or business of this
new Rail Road. \\ hen however, this Rail
Road company purchased the State canals
for the purpose of getting rid <>f the t<>n
nage tax, and the State had entered into a
positive agreement to this effect, the direct
cause for the imposition of this tax ceased
The Pennsylvania Kail Road was con
structed for the express purpose of carrying
tra de and travel from the west, and south
west to the Atlantic sea-hoard, and the ton
nage tax the company was compelled to pay
the State was levied upon the business of
the road,thus taxing the commerce between
the States to that extent, just that which
the President so much objects to. It is to
be hoped his salutary advice upon the sub
ject, so well calculated to beget her money
and promote prosperity, will be closely fol
lowed up, at least by our State. It is the
evident path of duty, and the dictate of
enlightened liberality. Perhaps the Presi
dent had in his mind's eye the corporation
of a neighboring State, whose power and
tendency to wrong-doing,lias been a source
of alarm to the people of the adjacent States;
and it is to be hoped, that it the Company
does not, of its own accord, now relinquish
the one, and stop the other, Congress will
fix its status for all time to come.
A Charleston paper takes satisfac
tion in saying that Gen. GRANT, on his re
cent visit in that city, "was quietly receiv
ed by the military authorities. The ne
grocs and Northern citizens turned out in
! considerable numbers to see the General,
but native Charlestonians all turned their
! faces persistently toward the business parts
of the city as the hour for his arrival ap
| preached. A few merchants, mostly "Yan
kees" invited the 'distinguished guest' to a
dinner at the Charleston Hotel, but he de
j clined for want of time."
&6F In the Alabama House, Mr. SMITH,

AN OI'TRACEOCS CASK OK DESERTION. —One
of the most cruel and outrageous cases
| of desertion that we have ever been called
! upon to chronicle, has just come to light
in this villiage. Miss Nancy Laytou, a
I lady recently employed as a seamstress in
the clothing store of C. M. Woodward A Cc.,
was married on Friday night last, to a man
| calling himself Harry Harris, who lias been
t employed about the villiage for six months
past as a carpenter. Harris had been very
assiduous in his attentions to Miss Lay ton
for some time past, and she supposed him,
as did others who knew him, to be an lion
> orable. industrious man. The lady had
about SISOO in the hands of friends in this
section, that had been left her by her fut'n
fer. Over eleven hundred dollars of this
| money had been collected in since the mar
! riage, in greenbacks, and drafts payable to
the order of Harris. Yesterday (Wednes
! day,) the couple took the afternoon freight
train for Elmira, with all the money and
i drafts safely in Hams' pocket. The os
tensible object of the trip was to visit Pliil
-1 adelphia. where Harris pretended to have
friends. Arriving in Elmira Harris diieeled
his wife ro remain in the cars while lie
i went out to attend to checking their hug
j gage, telling her they would go on in the
j same train. She did so, and that was the
last she saw of her husband. The train
was switched off as usual, and she s-on
learned that she had been deceived ; that
i to go to Philadelphia by either route it was
necessary to change ears at Elmira. The
' baggage was found upon the platform,
Harris' trunk with her own, but Harris
j himself had mysteriously disappeared, and
i all efforts to find him were unavailing.—
The deserted wife was left without a cent
i of money to pay her fare back to this place.
: Some of her friends went up to Elmira to
day and returned with her on the train
this evening. The matter has been plao-d
in the hands of the Police, and $.">0(1 reward
lias been offered for the arrest of Harris

A SHARK TRICK.— The Washington cor
respondent of the Philadelphia Ledger, of
the 27th inst., sends the following :
The Commissioner of Customs has jusi
received.intelligence of the detection and ar
rest of a party of female smugglers on the
j Canada frontier, engaged in the whiskey
traffic. A few days since the revenue (le
i dectives on a train coming from Canada
had their suspicious arroused bv the unusu-
I al number of women and babies on board,
and noticed that out of thirty-two babies
. but two evinced the ordinary signs of ani
mation. On arriving at a station on this
side of the river, where several of the sus
picious females left ue train, the detectives
with their usual eouitcsy, insisted on hold
ing the "baby" until the*lady alighted, and
at one.- discov red that it wus uncommonly
heavy. An investigation immediatelv took
place, when the 'baby' was found'to be
manufactured of tin, and to contain from
three to five gallons of whiskey. These
'babies' were ingeniously constructed and
clothed as to exhibit a tiny foot and ankle,
encased in red shoes and white stockings!
The Commissioner of Customs is making
every effort to suppress similar smuggling
operations along the Northern frontier
V& A recent paragraph in the National
Inteligencer stated that Mr. Greeley had ex
pressed himself in favor of the reconstruc
tion policy and against any division of
the majority in Congress. * .Mr. Greelev
thereupon replied, stating that he had la
bored, and was still laboring, for true and
lasting peace ; that no good could result
from alienation between the President and
Congress, and promises to do all lie can to
avert such an event He does not claim to
be the advocate of any especial plan of re
construction, but that the subject should
be earnestly and carefully discussed. The
novelty of the position is the stumbling
block complicated Ly the questions relat
ing to the freedmen and the part borne bv
them in the rebellion. He expresses an
earnest desire for the reinstatinent of tin-
States in all their original rights and 'lib
erties, without sacrificing those of any
portion of the American people.
