THE ToNNA.GE TAX
it cannot be denied that the Pennsylvania
Railroad has preserved to the State a vast
amount of commerce and trade, most, if not all
of which would have been lost, if the road
had not been built. Every one, who will can
didly examine the facts and statistics of the
carrying trade between Pittsburgh and P biles
delphia, can not deny this. In the words of the
memorial to which we have already alluded in
a previdus article, the annually published
statement, made by the Canal Commissioners,
show that "as far as the business of the Main
Line was ever reduced, the reduction was
caused by ;he rivalry of highways beyond our
borders. It is not reasonable to suppose
that, with its two detached canals, two separ -
ate railways and with its three transhipments
between Pittsburgh and Philadelphia, the re.
stilt could be otherwise, and we have high au
thority (that of Governor Bigler,) for saying
that but for. the intervention of the Pennsyl-.
vania Railway, the business of the Main Line
would have continued to d•minish."
An examination of the figures and facts will
show that the rivalry of tla; Pen- sylvania
Railroad increased, instead of dimftishing, the
revenues from the Public Works.
But the Main Lino 11 - .3 been sold to the
Pennsylvania Railroad Company, and the
State should at once release a tonnage duty
which was originally levied with the avowed
pm pose to commute its revenue from that
line. Why should the Commonwealth con
tinue a tax upon a property which she has
sold, after the teasel] for the tax, admitting
that it was a sound one, hasceased to exi at..
But in the end it is certain that the State
Treasury would be the gainer, instead of the
loser, by the abolition of thin clog upon our
. ( commerce, The following extract from the
Philadelphia memorial is sound political econ
emy—sound common sense—and fully accords
with the experience of the citizens of New
York, where such drawbacks as "tonnage
taxes" upon their own Public Works are now
regarded as exploded doctrines The inenio%
rialists say :—"lt is further represented
the citizens who o ri stock in the Pennsyl
vania Railroad—many of them—advanced their
money to make the improvement, mainly for•
the important benefits they expected to de
rive indirectly from the developed resources'
the augmented trade. and the stimulated in
dustry of the State. And this is the object
they still cherish, and for which they are so
licitous to have the duty taken off the ton
nage of a road which is the chief means by
which we can reasonably hope to withstand a
tierce competition with rival communities for
the carrying trade between the Atlantic cities
and the West.
To secure a fair share of that commerce
would vastly increase the prosperity of all
our people, whose productive powers would be
aroused, and whose commercial activity would
be stimulated as well by the copious influx of
'trade from source . beyond our borders, as by
the cheaper and freer intercourse secured for
traffic between themselves and the people of
other States. And, in the event of the repeal
of a tax on the business of the great Pensyl
vania highway, would the treasury of the
State sutler ? We;uld not it:, revenues from
the greatly enhanced taxable value of land
and other property, consequent upon stimu
lated productions and commerce, far exceed
the sum it receives, or can ever receive, from
an oppressive buithen upon so important a
thoroughfare! W by, then, tax the tonnage of
a highway which augments the general busi
ness of the community, enhances the wealth
of our people, and greatly multiplies, in the
only legitimate and salutary form of taxation.
the revenues of the Commonwealth ? Though
imposed directly on the transporter, the tax
is not in fact paid or borne by him. It falls
ultimately on the consumer of the article trans
ported, who finds it added to the final price of
the thing consumed. Thus while a road or
canal may be required to pay a tribute assess
ed upon its business, the sum comes directly
out of the revenues of the highway, but in.
directly out of the pockets of the people."
This is sound:, doctrine, and the relation to
the people is of the same nature as that of
landlord and tenant. The former complains
of the taxes, the latter pays chem. Increase
taxes, and the landlord at once increases his
rents. Those who consume the articles car
ried upon railroads, must pay the original
cost of the article, and the cost or carriage.
Reduce the price of freight, and exactly so
much you reduce the price of articles to the
consumer, arid not only h e ° bu the increased
supply induced by cheap transportation tends
to cheapen prices, and all for the consumers
benefit. The increased amount of business
would enhance the value of property, and the
Commonwealth would also increase its reven
ues derived from mercantile sources. Thus
the abolition of this duty upon trade would
manifestly benefit the citizens, and at the
same time the coffers of the State would not
sutler. In a day or two we shall probably
have something farther to say upon this sub
FICA NUE AND GI. ND
The recent attempt to assassinate the French
Emperor has resulted in again arousing the
feeling of enmity, which, for the last eight
hundred years has existed—sometimes active
sometimes dormant—between these nations
For a lew years past, the interchange of-cus
toms and of royal visits between these coun
tries, has seemed to break down the watery
barriers which surround the British Isles, and
at least between the governments, if not be
tween the people, there has been a fraterniza
tion. But questions have arisen which seem
likely to bring the two countries into serious
conflict. The French Government has no pa
tience with the English notions of freedom in
regard to political refugees. Louis Napoleon
himself who enjoyed the benefits of this freedom
seems in the pride of power to have forgotten
the lessons of his adversity, anti permits ad'.
,dresses from the army to be presented to him,
,offering in terms which cannot be mistaken, to
invade the "per/ide Albion." In England, the
Government would not have received such ad
dresses, in France the obnoxious portions of
them are omitted to be published. The French
change their Government on an average about
,once in ten years. The army and Paris are
France. He who would rule must control the
soldiers and thecapital. The French soldiery
tight for glory, and glory only. They will not
be satisfied with peace, and if they cannot fight
a foreign foe, they will be very apt to get up
a revolution for the sake of excitement. Eng
land complains of the police espionage of
France within her own territory, and also of
the revival of the French slave trade under a
different name. The French government say
this was rendered " necessary in consequence
of the British Government having through
jealousy interdicted the recruiting of coolies
for the French West Indies," and that in
1862 - they notified Great Britain that if this `- 10 °"eit thkt g'"
interdict was continued, resort would be hud )) ) I))
African emigration. If this be so, deeper age. H. Idi ..1 ri Ver ,uspecßa
alienation may be looked for between the two ;the hs.cl "traveled" with the Niter b .ys, !1a3,1
governments, and open rupture may come at
any time. The French Army is immensely
superior to the English, and upon the water
her forces aro not what they were in the time
of the tirA Napoleon. The English press ex,
ercises a powerful influence in France—more
powerful than their own Non-intercourse
between the nations would seriously endan
ger the throne of Napoleon the 111. and if he
justly appreciates his position, he will avoid a
collision with England at the present time,
even if it requires some sacrifice on his part.
Several weeks ago, at the time of its intro
duction we published in the Post a complete
abstract of the bill, making a change in the
License Law. As the bill seems likely to be
come a law, we briefly recapitulate its features.
It takes the licensing power from the Board of
Liconsers,but gives it to three Commissioners,
instead of the County Treasurer; compels
persons taking out license to file a bond in
the Quarter Sessions' Court for $5OO, condi
tioned for the preservation of order, and for
not allowing minors to drink—the Clerk of the
Court to get one dollar for furnishing the
blank used in filling up the bond:; those living
in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, who sell, $lO,-
000 worth per annum and upwards, are to pay
$2OO ; those selling $5,000, and under ten
thousand, are to pay $2OO ; those selling $2,-
500, and under $5,000, are to pay $5O ; those
whose sales do not amount to $2,000 per an
num arc to pay $3O ; in the country and
boroughs the last class are required to pay
only $25 . per annum. A list of persons in
the liquor business shall be prepared and clas
sified by the Commissioners, and furnished the
County Treasurer, &c.
Selling a Drunken Irian for Dissection
Some nights ago, says the New York Tribune,
a number of young men, while on their way
home come across a seedy looking individual,
perfectly insensible from the effects of liquor,
stretched at full length upon the hidowalk Their
funds wore quite exhausted, and how to "raise
the wind" had for some time been a matter of
discussion A proposition to bag the drunken
loafer and sell him to the doctors at a medical
college was agreed upon. A bag was procured,
the inebriate slipped into the sack and borne
upon the shoulders of the party to the college.
The doctor answered the summons at the bell
and demanded what was wanted, when the
spokesman said, Doctor, we have got a "stiff'
for you." The dooter asked but few questions,
and paid $6 for the " stiff" that being the sum
required. The sack, with its contents, was de
posited in the hall, and the fellows had taken
their departure, when the loafer, who hod been
thrown in rather an uncomfortable position, at
tracted the attention c f the doctor just r s he
wise about closing the door. He at once pc r.
ceived that the man was alive, and again open
ing the door, hallowed to the young fellows,
who lingered on the walk, telling them that the
man was alive. " All right," said the spokes-
man •` you've got him. now, and you ono kil
him when you want htm." The doctor saw that
he hild been sold, and pocketed the joke.
A correspondent of the Hamilton Spectator
gives a full account of the situation, condition
and prospects of Ottawa, the new capital of
Canada. The town was handsome, the streets
broad, and the buildings mostly of stone. The
water power furnished by the Rideau and
Gahineau rivers is said to be immeanse.
Chats Rapids, also, the water power is almost
unlimited, so that Ottawa promises to be the
manufacturing centre of Canada. The inhab,
itants of the place are indulging in the antici
pations of building up a great metropolis.
" Already," says the writer, " there is, in one
of the public halls of the - city, a painting re
presenting Ottawa as it will be, with stately
buildings on every eminence, on the river a
British man-of-war at anchor, and a threes

late attempted assassination of Louis Napoleon,
It is reported that one of the prisoners, Radio,

very smiling prospective for the Emperor. Ac

SUCCESSVUL IMITATION OF DAMASCUS BLADES
it is well known that the Damascus blades are
distinguished for presenting upon their surface t.
variegated appearance of watering, as 'white,
silvery, or black veins, in firm lines or fillets--
fibrous, crossed, interlaced, or parallel, &c. They
are brought from the &Ist, being fabricated
chiefly at Damascus, whence their name, and
their exoellent quality has long been proverbial .
The oriental processes have never been satisfac
torily described ; but of late years methods have
been devised to imitate the fabric very well—the
most notable being the processes pointed out by
M. (Monet, viz: that of a parallel fillet, that by
torsion, and the mosaic. These blades, inde
pendently of their excellent quality, their fiexi
bi'ity, and extreme elasticity, have an advantage
over the oriental blades, in that they exhibit in
the very substance, the metal, designs, letters,
inscriptions, and, generally speaking, all kinds
of figures which had been delineated beforehand .
But to M Breant belongs the credit of having
solved the real problem involved in the watered
designs of the true Damascus article. He has
demonstrated that the substance of the oriental
blades is a cast steel more highly charged with
car bon than other steels, and in which, by means
of a cooling, suitably conducted, a cryStaliza
ion takes place of two distinct combinations or
,-arbon and iron. This separation is the essen
tial condition—for if the melted steel be sod
dently cooled iu a small crucible or ingot, then
is no Damascene appearance.

THE CHEMICAL OLIVE ERASIVE
SOAP, manufactured by B. C. & J. 11. Sawyer, re-
receives the preference over all other kinds ever offered for
Its advantages over other Soaps are:—let. It is cheaper
to use, one pound being equal to three of common rosin
Soap. 2d. Half the time need only be occupied in washing
when this Soap is used In place of other Soap. 3d. Lab. r
In washing can be nearly dispensed with, ad the clothes
will require little if any rubbing, thus avoiding their wear
on the wash-board. 4th. thuling the clothed is unnecessary
when this Soap is used, and hard or salt water answers
equally as well as soft. sth. Printers, Machinists, Paint••rs
and others, find it far sop -rior to other Soaps. It speedily r
moves grease, tar, paint, printers' ink and dirt from the
hands, leaving the skin soft, and free from chapping.
To avoid the labor Si rubbing the clothes, and the 1:13,, of
the wash-board, the following directions should be followed :
For the washing of eight or ten of a family, take ono
panid of Soap, cut it into shavings, and dissolve In one
fallen of hot water; put the clothes into a tub containing
about ten gallons of warm water; pour in the disdolved
Soap, and stir thoroughly. Let tl em soak twenty to thirty
minutes, wring out, and rinse in warm water once, cold
water twice. A very dirty wrist-band, or seam, or grease
sprts, may require a slight rubbing, but otherwise the
clothes will come out clean and white, without rubbing or
boiling. Cold water may be used in place of hot, requiring
about double time in soaking.
