The Lady's Book for December has

was liable to be prosecuted under the

county purposes. The following is the
decision of the Court, as delivered by one
t d, -r j
of the Judges:
j ue qucsuoii acre is, are suaies Ui
Bank stock subject to taxation for county
purposes? By the law of 1844, section
32, 'shares of stock in any Bank' are
made taxable for State and county pur
poses,' and section 33 prescribes the
measure of the State tax and mode of
collecting it. But all this was changed
by the law of 1S50 regulating Banks.
By its section 21, the tax on dividends is
considerably increased, and by section
20 a direct tax is added on the stock it
self, with a-proviso that the fctock shall
not be subject to taxation for any other
purpose; and tins provision remain? in
a, a-
the supplementary law of 1552, pamphlet
laws, page 443, which repeals this direct
tax; and the result is that the 21st sec
tiou oi tuc act or ioou is tne only run
for taxing Bank stock, and it is not taxa
ble for county purposes. We cannot ap
preciate the distinction that would make

other than State taxes. The State needs
this source of revenue for its own purposes
aud it may not suit to leave it open to
general taxation. Moreover, banks are
not allowed to deal with their money as
they please, and fix their own rate of dis
count, and with such restrictions on tbem
it might not be just to impose upon them
the same burdens that can well be borne
by the wealth that is unrestricted in the
mode of its employment. Resides this,
the burdengpf such taxation is very une
qual, most of it escaping taxation by fa
voritism, concealment, or carelessness.

Murder by a Madman in. Perry o
On Tuesday the 8th inst., our commu
nity was thrown into an excitement, by
the report that a madman, who is a pau
per in the Perry Co. (Penn.) Alms house
near this place, had perpetrated a most
horrid murder. On going to the spot
the terrible report proved only too true.
The following arc the circumstances con
nected with the dreadful scene: In the
afternoon the Steward of the Alms House,
Mr. Balthazer, sent three of the paupers
into the forest to cut wood, two Irishmen,
and a German who is not considered a lu
natic, though subject to fits of ungoverna
able irrasibility. This man had been
troublesome on former occasions, though
latterly had behaved pretty well; he was
a man of great strength. Soon after they
commenced work, without any provoca
tion whatever, indeed not a word was spo-
on au? 0f rals?d hiS s'iarP nntl
ueuv v uau auu unu uuu uuiuuuuuus uiuw
hurried it in the body of the unfortunate
Irishman, who stood just before him.
The axe entered the right shoulder bone,
pased through the ribs, divided the right
lobe of the lung and separated the aorta;
instant death of course ensued. After
the deed was done he took up his axe and
went home, where he was put in irons,
and will be tried. An inquest was held
over the body of the murdered man, and
the verdict rendered in accordance with
the facts stated. Yours, &c, 11. Wcisor.

Whole Story,
The Albany Knickerbocker under the
"Independence and Progress, '
tells the whole story of our nation's birth
and progress in a remarkably short par
agraph for a theme so comprehensive.-
The style is rather racy, but decidedly
"to the point. '
It is seventy-seven years ago to-day
since Uncle Sam was born, aud what an
eventlul seventy-seven years they nave
been. Seventy-seven year3 ago, the U-
nited States was a remote circumstance;
they now compose the second commercial
nation in the world. In three-quarter's
of a century they have revolutionized the
world, built up an empire, lieiced our
mother, and lenced in a continent, in
less than it took Methuselah to get out
si -lit . 1 1
ot swaddling clothes, wo have made more
canals, tamed more lightning, and bar-
nessed more steam, and at a greater
cost in money, than tho whole revenues
of the world could have paid for the day
he got out of his time. In seventy-five
years we not only changed the politics of
the earth, but its wearning apparel cot-
ton shirts being as much tho offspring of
the united states, as baiiot-uoxes and
democracy. Since tho fourth of July,
177G, the whole world has been to school,
ana wnatis nettor, nas learned more com-
mon sense than was taught in tho previ-
ous four thousand years. Tho problem
of sen-government has been solved, and
its truth made immortal as Washington'
or yellow corn. Its adaption to all the
wants of tho most aspiring nation has
been made most signally manifested Un-
dcr its harmonious working, a republic
has grown up m an ordinary lifetime that
'would have taken another system of gov-
eminent a thousand years to have bro't
about. Yes, in less time than it has
taken some green-house plants to arrive
at maturity, we nave bunt a nation that
has spread itself from Maine to Mexico,
from the Atlantic to the iJacihic a na-
tion that has . caught moro Mexicans,
planted more telegraph posts, and owns
more steamboats, than any nation that
ever lived or ever will live. For all this.
wo again say, thank God, aud praise
Thomas Jefferson."
