ASSESSMENT OF TAXES.
We are glad to notice that our
County Commissioners are taking a
step in the right dircction,;by giving
assessors peremptory' orders to assess
money. It was undoubtedly the design
of the law
. regulating taxation that
:money should bear its just propor:
tions of the burthen of supporting
the government, but practice has.not
fulfilled the design of the law. Here
tofore in this county but a very small
portion of the money at interest has
been returned by the assessor. The
injustice and inequality of such a
course will readily be admitted. Mr.
A purchases a farm, • and borrows
$5,000 from B to:pay for it; :;the as
sessor returns the farm as the prop• 7
erty Of 11,. and Mr. A, who .actually .
owns it, not only' evades paying any
,tax, but gets interest on his money,
whereas A is made to pay both inter
est and taxp4. No candid man will
for a moment claim that such a sys
tem is just. There is undoubtedly
over $300,000 at interest in this
county untaxed. Should this be so ?
We answer, emphatically, No! The
Commissioners should be. commended
for their efforts to relieve real estate
of the taXes which should rightfully
be paid by those who enjoy the ben
efits afforded by the laws of the COM
monwealth and whose property con
sists in money,—too often employed
to oppress those who pay the taxes.
TUE LATE MPEAKEE 'JEWEL
• The. House on Saturday last spent
most of the day in the delivery of
eulogies on the late Speaker KERR.
Appropriate speeches were made- by
Messrs. hAMILTON, lIAY3IOND, Cats.,

Virginia, and McCnAttv (Rep.) of

Mr. KERR as a whole-heaWd and
courageous man, who never practiced
but loathed the arts of the deuia-
COx stated that, when
( 7 0crUe
by Mr. KERICS• death-bed, he- asked
whether he was ready to meet the
terrors of death, the answer was that
death had . no terrors for him. lie
believed (Mr. Cox said] that a just
`life on earth would give him his re,
ward. What, he asked, did Mr. Kim:
believe, irliregard to the great future?
Ms faith was in his works; his re
ligion was to be lionest ;
that his integrity and conscience
were the sum of pure, undefiled re
ligion..jle did not-accept the dogmas
of the Church, or any Chuich ; he
did not accept all that was written
or' said about tile Saviour ; but he
did make the teachings of Christ a
model for his own life. lie believed in
"ThAt•t;hl crecd of creeds,
, The loveliness of I,n - rect deeds.'
With him laborare was orare : Work
was his orison. And when he left to
pass gently through the portals to
the other seethed as if noth
ing incarnate *as left of him. He
was a devotee of the peculiar class of
'philosophers known as' Positivists.

A PATRIOTIC ADDRESS.
Our • Democratic friends who are
just now attempting to ferment civil
war because they have been defeated
at the polls, , and who are loud and
bitter in their denunciations of Pres
ident GRANT, should occasionally pe
ruse the following patriotic farewell
address to the soldiers, issued to:the
soldiers at the close of the ;wat.in
180 : - i
SOLDIERS OF THE ARMIES OF
UNITED STATES: By your ,patriotic de
:votion to your country in the hour of
danger and alarm, Your magnificent fight
mg, bravery, and endurance, you have
maintained the supremacy of the Union
and the Constitution, overthrown.all arm
ed opposition to the enforetment of the
laws and of the proclamation forever
abolishing slavery, the cause and pretext
of the rebellion,and opened the way to the
rightful authorities to restore order and
inaugurate peace on a permanent and en
during basis on every foot Of American
soil. Your marches, and sieges, and bat
tles, in distance, duration, and resolution,
and brilliancy of result, dim the lustre of
the world's past military, achievements,
and will he the patriot's precedent in de
fence of Liberty and Right in all time
eqine. In obedience to your country's
call, you left your homes and families,
and volunteered in its defence. Victory
has crowned your valor and secured the
purpose of your patriot hearts ; and ith
the gratitude of ybur countrymen and the
highest honors a greai'and free nation
can accord you will soon 'be permitted' to
return to your homes and familieS, con
scious of having discharged the highest
duty of American citizens. To achieve
these glorious triumphs, and to secure to
yourselves, your fellow-countrymen, and
posterity the bleskingsof free institutions,
tens of tht:usaud of your gallant comrades
havel'allan, null sealed the, priceless legacy
with their lives.. The graves of these a
gratefUl nation bedows with tears, honors
their memories, and will ever, cherish and
support their stricken families.
L. S. GnANT,
Gen. GRANT is as true to his obli
gations as Executive of the nation
as he was in his allegiance as a sol
dier, and it Pi the very height of im
pudence for those who aided treason
and rebellion to.aecuse the President
of 'wanting patriotism. The country
has the same eause .forthankfulness
now. in the fact . ' that Gen. GRANT is
President, that had in the darkest
period of the rebellion that he was
at the head of the army. Their,faitb
and confidence in him are unshaken,
and will never be disappointed. •
A NEW STATE.i
The Elmira Advertiser proposes a
new State, to be organized out of the
Southern'tier of New York and the
northern tier of this State. Here is
the way it talks about the matter :
" Talk about new States, how'4.
this? Take the counties of Chau - tan-.
qua, Cattaraugua. Alregany, Steuben,
Schuyler, Cheuning,, Tompkins, Tioga
and Broome, in this State ; and the
counties of Wayne, .Wyoming,Sus
quehanna, portions . of Columbia,
Montour and Northumberland,Union,
Clinton, Cameron, ,Potter; Elk, Mc-
Kean, Forest, Warren,. Venango,
Crawford and Erie, , and , see what a
stin ,, State that would be, with El-.
mira for its Capital ! U; would be
much more- naturally divided from
both Pennsylvania and New York,
than those two States are now divid
ed from each other, and then those
now living in Pennsylvania wouldn't
have to go out of their own State to
get to their capital. This is some
thing worth thinking,about, 'and our
neighbors over the border would be
the ,tast to object to th'e prOposition."

Senator Morton's sudden departure for
Indiana last Thursday &ening caused no
little commotion anions;; Washington poll.
ticians. A dozen diflbrent theories of the
object of his visit have been advanced.
The public meeting which he was to ad
dress last evening was undoubtedly ar
ranged after his purpose to visit Indiana
polis became known, fur it is hardly pos
sible that he would have left his place in
the Senate at such a critical timF, simply
to fill an engagement of that kind: The
generally accepted theory of his visit has
been that the Administration believes it
important that he should personally as-.
certain the real object and extent of thcl,l
Democratic movement in his State, and
whether' its purpose is simply to arouse
public opinion in favor of the inaugura
tion of Gov. Tilden, or is in reality nub
tare in its character. If the latter should
be found tube the fact, it has been sup
.posed that the Administration wouldeen.
bider it desirable to provide for 3 count
er organization strong enough to meet it
on its own. ground.
Another theory has gained credence to
day, and seems to have originated in .high
Administration - circles. It is said that
the collection of munitious of war fourth
in size in the country is stored at Indiana
polis and in view of the mass meetings
Which the Democrats haVe called at that
time and other points in the State, and
the suspicion that they may not be en—
tirely peaceable id their purpose, it was
deemed by the President awl his Cabinet
highly important that measures should be'
taken to protect them iu case any emer
gency should arise. -
In this connection it may be said that
the Chairman of the National Democratic
Committee denies having any knowledge
of a military organization by the Demo
cratic party either in Indiana, Ohio, or
any of the Western States. The Mass
meetings which have been called are nut
to be held, so members of that commit
tee a: sett with its saection. / i The ques
tion Of issuing amaddress to! the people
asking them to assemble in mass meet
ings and give expression to their feelin
has been repeatedly raised in the meet
ings of the Democratic National rommit
tee, and on , every occasion it has been do
feated. At the last meeting of the com
mittee a resolution was submitted provi
ding for 'a call for mass meetings to be
held on the Sat of January,

The committee, after sonic discussion,

and immediately proceeded to gnarteraat
the arsenal, where 'two inure companies
are expected by mit Friday.
The information received here by va
rions leading i llepublicans leaves no doubt
that the attempt has been made among
the DemocraCy in several localities to
form secret organization. It is not be
lieved, however, that any such stift:ess
had hem achieved as to make the attempt
f serious appreheusior. Some
Democr have undoubtedly tAideayored
quietly o extend the inr?ression that
large or anizations had b , !en. formed, on
the supposition tlmt i;,' would, create a
a panic among Repe,blicau !politicians.
So far as Indiana is concerned, a gentle
man from that State expresses , the confi
dent belief that the mganization will not
be more exten••;ive than that of the Sons
of Liberty during the war, and he also
makes l'oe prediction that when the truth
is di..:overed the pettonnel and character

Tho *nation in South Carolina, and
the attemp t of Wade Hampton to play

erainfrit interest here, and are not evenl
subjects, of frequent political discussion.
There Is ne longer reason to fear any, dis
turbance,of the peace; in Columbia, and,
while ,the: , present situation continues
there is not likely to be any action by the
Government lOoking to any further re
cognition of one party or: the other than
has already been given. In any event,
the questiorts of law that are raised will
come before the Senate when Mr. CrOnin
presents his eredent als at the beginning
of the next session, and there will bo.of
necessity a Senatorial investigation and a
decision in that body which will practi
cally determine the legality of the Chain,:
berlain Legislature. It is stated among
Republicans from South Carolina that
Senator Robertson's recent course was
dictated by a Ituowledge that he stood , no
chance of re-election 'by the Republicans
of the Legislature, and they think that he
was hopeful of re-election by the Ilatnp

no new developments in the political sit
uation,' and as one of the people, 'I regard
it a duty of good citizenship to give ex
pression to opinions formed upon the
crisis which has befallen the co.,ntry.
But as there is nothing of great moment
in the sophistry and technical quibbling
connected with the result of the Presiden
'tial contest to redeem the Democrntie
`twists in favorof that party of "Reform,"
there is but little satisfaction derived by
; Here, as elsewhere,Detweer ,ts

and activities in trying to defeat the soy

kortutie tb the country that the, Prenden
tiarelection snoniti hale been so chze,
and especially to have the result depend
upon a few of the Stat.lS south of Mason's
and Dixon's line, where it was possible
for disputes to arise such' as Las excited
the public mind since the 7th of Novem
ber. It is net a gaol thing for a people
to remain so long in doubt and suspense.
I with the result undetermined, The busi
ness of the whole land labors iindv.a de

activity httratle. Southern Democrats in
Congressfare entitled to praise and adnii
ration for their behavior; the example set
by them Northern Democrats would do
well to follow, instead of returning to the
same argument:sand threats use .1 by them
I sixteen years ago. Democrats request to
be let alone ; ~.that past issues of their,
t party's history- should be by-genes, anti
therefore blotted out; yet felony'. murder,
mutilation, threats of war, and bull-dozing
(systematized under the 'elastic head of
intimidat bm) are tolerated Within their
patriotic organization, and by' these milans
they purpose to foist into the Executive
chair a President who as S-rarely ./-ustitied
3-reason. as did the arch-traitor Jeff Da
vis himself. The notoliety of Orep•on's
son Cronin, in the Electoral College of
that State, shows conclusively to what
extreme measures these dignified Consti
tution huggers resort to carry the cher
ished plans of their armor-bearers to ma
turity. Admitting that Cronin was', an
elector as far as Governor Grover's cer.iti-•
cote could make him, his action alone
defeated the treachery and created - a
vacancy which the other two bad a right
to fill. Recognizing this fact to be rea
sonable and sup - ported by law, the Repub
licans can give no reason why they should
accept any proposal for a compromise.
The only proper way to obviate a dilemma
is to inaugurate that Candidate who has
received a' majority of the electoral votes
as they have been returned. Democrats
should remember that the vapularanajoie
it y, of which they nit e so loud a noise,
is composed of voters who were- formerly
Republicans, anti should there be la'
:wined resistance to law and authority,
there would unquestionably be an upris
ing of the loyal people as suddenly as
followed Fort Sumpter. TIM Southern
members have already taken a practical
view of the situation. awl they do ntit,
seem to be inclined to t adopt an experi
