THE Democratic party has formally 40
completely committed itself to the principle
of equal taxation of all property. None of
their Conventions have yet specified the
proper rate to be levied,
.but leading Demo
crats in Congress, having suggested two per
cent. as the rate for bond-takation, this is
perhaps the figure intended to be applied to
all property. The farmer will therefore
pay, after that party attains the control of
affairs, f a tax of two dollars on each one hun
dred dolhirs of valuation of his land. • Real
estate in town and country will thus yield
an immense revenue—quite enough to justi
fy the, party in following up their favorite
poliey at 'once, by taking off all duties from
importatious, throwing open the ports, get
ting foreign goods cheap, and, destroying at.
one blow all our domestic industries. The
people may like ,the prospect, but for our
own part, we prefer things as they now are.

PITTSBURGH ;GAZETTE : _MONDAY. .SEPTEMPTIt. 21.
DEMOCRATIC LOVE OF DigthY.
The framers of the Democratic National
Platform manifested a deep concern, in the
first place to deliver the rebel leaders from
the punishments and disabilities to which
they were justly amenable, and then to re
store to their hands the political control of
the States that participated in the rebellion.
This appears conspicuously in the first and
second demands embodied in that docu
ment, and which are in the words follow
"First—lmmediate restoration of all the
States to their rights in tho Union, under
the Colistitution, and of civil government
to the American people.
" ,, S'acond—Amnesty for all past political
otfens , s, and, the regulation of the elective
franchise irilhe States by their dwu citi
To appreciate aright the meaning of these
two demands, it is essential to consider that
the relations of the loyal States to the na
tional Government are , precisely what they
were before the war, and that the rights and
immunities of the citizens of those States,
and all classes thereof, remain - unchanged.
It follows, therefore, that the solicitude
exhibited is not for the loyal States, or any
portions of their inhabitants. No thought
is bestowed upon them; upon the sacrifices
they were compelled to incur in order to
preserve the Union; or upon their just
right to be made reasonably secure against
the necessity for similar losses and hardships
Not yet is this anxiety displayed in behalf
of the loyal inhabitants of the States that
embarked in Rebellion. No fear is ex
pressed that the political authority
States may revert to the same men that
held it during the war, and who are as host
tile to the Union now as at any former pe
riod. No care is evinced to , protect loyal
alists in the enjoyment of their unquestion
able rights, and to ensure to them that de
gree of influence which is essential to the
restoration of concord, and consequently
to the perpetuation of peace.
The solicitude is altogether in behalf of
the rebel leaders. They alone are under
disabilities, and their relief therefrom is
prompted to by sympathy with their
principles and conduct, and by the mutual
advantages which would result from the
renewal of their ascendency.
Let us scrutinize these demands some
what more closely.
"The immediate restoration of all the
States to their rights in the Union under the
Constitution." Seven of these States have
already been restored, and the remaining
three will be as soon as they shall comply
with the' conditions exacted of them. In
the purview of this demand those seven
States are not yet restored to their rights.
The conditions laid upon them are held to
be in derogation of the • Constitution. The
Democratic idea seems to be that any num
ber of the States may,L at any time, wage
war against the Union as long as they can,
and when conquered may slip. back into
their old places unchallenged and witl:out
giving any guarante,ps whatever for good
behavior thereafter. The purpose is to get
them back as •(key were before they went out.
At the least, that implies a good deal, and
may be construed to mean even the restora
tion of Slavery.'
But the same clause of the Platform goes
farther and makes a parade of demanding
the restoration of "civil Government to the
American people." Now, the American
people are not aware that they have been
deprived of civil Government. They have
a deep consciousness that they are in as full
and absolute possession of that boon as they
ever were. Certain rebels and rebel States
are under military supervision; and that
grieves the Deinocrats everywhere. Their
grief does not surprise us;
_but the attempt
to convey the impression that thode rebels
constitute the American — people, would con
found us if we did , not know that Demo
cratic audacity in' that line is unbounded.
The second demand, of "Amnesty for all
past political offenses," indicates the same
complicity and fraternization with Treason.
The Republicans are ready to pardon all
citizens for 'sharing in the revolt who now
sh+ they are repentant; but in view of the
loud threats made of a renewal of the
strife, and of the terrible tragedies perpe
trated by the Ku-Klux, they are not ready
for Universal Amnesty. Only the enemies
of the Government are anxious for that. In
the present state of affairs at the South, Uni
versal-Amnesty means encouragement to
disloyalty and to the most infamous crimes
against the peace and well-being of society.
It does not commend the bemocratic party
to popular support that they are eager to
cover men who are as much rebels now as
heretofore, with an act of otilivioiE
But this second section advances a step
farther and demands that the rebel States,
restored to their rights under the Constitu
tion, as the Democrats expound that process,
shall have "the iegulation of the elective
franchise" within their respective borders.
This means that - the rebeli shall have the
power to disfranchise the loyalists, and take
matters exclusively into their own hands. In
Georgia the Democrats have been putting
this idea somewhat into practice, and what
they have done, in flat violation of the Civil
Rights act, and their own State Constitu
tion, shows how much farther they would
go if the Democratic demand in their behalf
which we are considering should be granted.
It is natural the Democrats should let
out what is in them, and we thank them for
their candor; but it will be to their ruin
at the November elections, to the permanent
welfare of the country and genuine civil
liberty the world over. -

.BRITISH NATIONAL DEBt
From official documents 'the following
stcttistics of the national debt and commerce
of Great Britain are gleaned : .
At the close of the financial year on the
31st of March, 1855, the funded debt amount
ed to £752,064,119; the unfunded debt was
£23,151,400; and the estimated capital of
terminable annuities, £26,763,244; making
the total amount of the National Debt
£801,978,763. A year later, at the corres
ponding date in 1856, at the close of the
Crimean war, the amount was £829,579, 708;
at the like date in 1 57, £841,722,963; in
1858, £826,124,640; in 1859, £823,934,880;
in 1860, £819,070,310; i 1861,4818,048,896;
in 1862, £817,389,290; 1 1863, £817,559,322;
in 1864, £813,230,134; i 1865,4808,189,398;
in 1866, 4802,842,949;1 1867, £800,848,847;
and on the 31st of Marcii, 1868, £797,031,650;
-viz: 4741,190,328 fit:Lied debt, 47,911,100
unfunded, and 447,930,222, the estimated
capital value of the terminable, annuities,
which in that year am unted to £3,447,270.
Since 1855- the increa., of debt incurred for
the Crimean war has eon wiped out, and
the proportion of debt ayable by termina
ble annuities has been aterially increased.
The total gross rev nue of the country
for the year ended Mar h, 1868, amounted
to £69,600,218 sterling Of this sum $22,-
650,000 was derived from
. custems, and
£20,162,000 from excise duties, £9,541,000
from stamps; £6,177,000 from property and
income tax, and £3, 509,000 from other taxes;
$4,630,000 from the postoffice, £345,000
from crown lands, and 22,586,218-from
miscellaneous receipts. The charges of
collection of revenue amounted to £4,883,-
294, and the total expenditure, after deduct
ing charges of collection, to £66,343,038,
which is thus epitomized :—.£26,571,750 for
interest and management of the National
debt; £11,193,757 for the civil list and civil
charges 'of all kinds; £15,48,582 for the
army, including' ordnance and all other mil
itary charges; and £11,168,949 for the navy.
The customs revenue was derived—from
duties on sugar and molasses, amounting
to £5,582,473; on tea, to £2,827,317; on
coffee, to £390,181; on corn, meal and
flour, to .£869,823; on spirits, to E4,298,-
403; on wine, to £1,468,993; on tobacco
and snuff, to $6,542,250; on other
imported articles, to £581,481; and on mis
cellaneous receipts, to 4104,580. The ex
cise duties consisted of £10,511,530 derived
from. spirits, £6,302,419 from malt, 42,640,-
238 from licenses, and 4736,152 from other
receipts. By an abstract of alterations of
taxes from 1853 to 1867, it is found that tax
es were repealed or reduced to the extent of
£40,292,904, and were Imposed to the extent
of £28,448,596, causing at the end of 1867
an actual diminution to the extent of 411,-
844,308 sterling. The total value of im
ports during the past year was 4275,249,853,
or 49 2s. Cd. per head of population, of the
United Kingdom. The total value of ex
ports (British, foreign and colonial produce)
was £226,067,136, and the total value of im
ports and exports represented £l6' 12s. sd.
per head of the population. The actual re
ceipts at the Exchequer fell short of the sum
estimated in the budget by a sum of £369,-
782, and the actual payments out of the
Exchequer _(excluding fortifications) were
less than those estimated in the budget (in
cluding supplemental votes) by 450,785.
THE MAINE ELECTION
- - F I. Returns from 840 incorporated towns,
mostly official, give CIIAMBERLAI. a ma
jority of 21,214. The one hundred small
precincts to hear from will probably swell
that majority above 22,000. Have our Dem
ocratic friends any later news ? One of
their editors, BRICK POMEROY, says :
"The. State election in Maine has been
held—the smoke has lifted—the Republicans
have ovre 20,000 majority. We are defeated
there and do not like it. We met the enemy
in Maine and are theirs. They whipped us
there worse than we supposed they would
or could, and It hurts, Duty to our readers
—a desire to speak truth—makes us admit
a defeat there—a stronger Republican vote
than we looked for. We did not expect to
carry the State, nor to make heavy gains
there. Some editors have bragged on the
great prospects there, and told their readers
the Democrats were to carry the State.
And now they tell us we were not worsted
in the Maine fight : but we are!"

THE following extract from a private .let
ter is published in the Cincinnati Commer
cial. Its author is a Mississippian:
"I am a Southern man by birth, education
and feeling, and wish only the peace, quiet
and prosperity of my country, and as such
feel no hesitancy in saying that the election
of Grant and Colfax can alone give us these;
while the election of Seymour and Blair
will bring greater discord and a more un
settled state of affairs with us than now ex
ists. With Grant and' Colfax elected, our
people will cease to follow the behests of
our wild politicians, and will realize that it
is wise to accept the situation, which they'
will cheerfully do, and our peace , and pros
perity will certainly follow"
This is the literal truth. The worst thing
for the Southern people that could happen
would be the triumph of the Democratic
party at the November elections.
GEN. FonnEsm, the eminent Democratic
leader, thus explains the Fort Pillow
"There were with me many citizens who
had been wronged, and, I think, without
waiting for, the surrender of the men who
had wronged them and their ihmilies, they
shot them down." •

THE Philadelphia Morning Post gives the
following excellent recips for making Dem-
ocratic gains :
To get at the Gain you must take the
Standard Democratic Arithmetic, published
at the World office, and for sale at the office
of the Age. This classic volume should he
in the hands-of every Democratic voter. It
is what is called a vade MECUM. You will
see by this invaluable work that you must
always subtract the larger number from the
lesser, and then average the remainder by a
strict comparison with the election returns
of some old almanac,' and the older it is the
better. Now, if you will please recollect
that four times five is fifty, and that twice
two makes ten and then that ninety-four
into seventeen goes six times, and that
thirty-four from twenty-five leaves eleven,
you will easily comprehend that the Demo
crats made great gains in Maine. You have
first got to deduct from the so-called Repub
lican majority of 22,000 about 30,000 illegal
votes, and to add to the Democratic vote
about the same number to cover the tare and
tret. Then you must take the per centage
of the gain of the majority of the vote of, the'
Democracy in 1808, just fifty years ago, and
see how the square root can be extracted
from the difference.

you are forced to remain in this here free
and enlightened country of ours for FIVE
years before YOU are permitted to exercise
the right of suffrage; but what do we sEE?
What do we HEAR? In one fell swoop,

four million of black nuggers are authorized
i l i
to exercise this precious privilege, which
was intended oily for the white man."
Regular De ocratic yells followed this
outburst of eloquence, showing that the
audience appreciated the orator's effort.
When we remember that there are only
"four million"iblacks all told, men, women
anti children in the South, and that they
were all born and raised in this country,
the force and beauty of the extract can only
be seen by A TANNER BOY.
