Assent of Telegraph OfficiaLs to Pay
Tax on Messa.ges i 'Svc,
WomargroN, Feb. 3
The representatives of telegraph interests now
here, have suggested to the Committee of Ways
and Means their readiness., to pay tax on mes
sages, and thus contribute to the support of the
Government: .
The chairman of the Committee on Ways
and Means, (Stevens,) will endeavor to bring
the House to a vote on the Treasury Bill on
;Representative Hooper's speech to-day was
listened with marked attention, it being a clear
exposition of. the views of the Treasury Depart
ment on the financial question. The Secretary,
in a letter, to the Committee, says the general
provisions of the bill seems well adapted to the
end proposed. That the provision making the
notes a legal tender was doubtless well consid
ered by the committee, their reflections hadcon
ducted him to the same conclusion. He felt
great fears as to making anything but gold and
silver legal tenders, but owing to the large.ex
penditures and bank suspensions, the..provi
sinus is indespensible. The Secretary has sug
gested amendments providing against counter
feiting, and directing the manner in which the
notes are to be executed. 'the Secretary
addressed a note to Spaulding to day, in which
he says "Immediateaction is of great impor
tance. The treasury. is nearly empty. I have
been obliged to draw for the last instalment
of the November loan. Su soon as it is paid I
tear the banks generally will refuse to rt ceive
the. United States notes. You will . see the ne

indefatigable devotion to its interests, with his
own sterling integrity and general abilities,
