THE PITTSBURGH POST. ➢:O tt:S. P.ii.d t to r A.111(1 Proprietor PITTSBURC hi T IitTRSDA) 7%1() RN I 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 ,that 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 ject. 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. FEBRUARY 26 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 masted vessel from Liverpool in full sail en route to Chicago, via the ship canal which is in contemplation."

Interest Deposits. The practice of paying interest upon de. posits will be continued by the New York city banks as heretofore, the Bank of Commerce having refused to join with its associates in discontinuing the practice. The lessons of the past in respect of this most dangerous practice are already set aside,and the banks are underta king to again run the hazards which they'have found to be's() poorly paid for in these coun try bank accounts and other interest drawing accounts, which are always forced from them at the time, when, it' ever, they are worth paying for, and mightjm useful.

It certainly seemed strange that l was present at neither the Philadelphia nor New 1 - theetini.;. There is a very well lee eel rutelr afloat that a re uoneiliutien been effected in part between him and Mr. Duelianan, and I heir it asseuod that the late tioverrior ..1 Kansas will n , d be found prominent any longer in opposition to the President's policy with reference to that Terrin , ry. Another rumor is that Mr. Walker is likely , to go into govern• went serviee again after his domest', - • affair: become little more settled." The commissions of sixty-two Postmasters, princi pally in Maryland and the Wei.tern States, including Cincinnati, expired yesterday. Many of the locum. bents here are looking after re appointment, while a larger number are seeking the places. The Cabinet had the subject under consideration, but have ar rived at no conclusion, as the expectants were in formed this morning at the Post Office Department. Senator Green will make the opening speech on Monday, on the Kansas bi;I; he will bo foih, we 4 by Mr. Collamer in reply. Mr. Seward will speak n Tuesday. The President to day sent to the Senate, for con lirmatin, an unusually large number of no m i na lio, to various offices, the appointments nearly altogether having been made during the reces, , of Congress. The administration has not yet received any inti mation from Mr. Dallas of his intention voluntarily to vacate his mission. Alexander M. Robinson, of Missouri, has bean ap pointed to the Central Superintendency of Indian affairs, vice Governor Cumming. The challenge having been withdrawn, and the seconds having retired, Messrs. C,ittendati, Toombs and Mason effected a settlement of the difficulties be tween Messrs. Clay and Cullom, who had returned to Washington. Funeral or the Vletlunts of the Pacific Hovel Fire ST.

Ac emiling to Radio's confession, the c.) aspirators wore live hundred in number. They are bound to their work by a terrible oath, and their ob jo:t is the assassinaton of Louis Napotesti.

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.

Li 02.3 THE CHEMICAL OLIVE ERASIVE SOAP, manufactured by B. C. & J. 11. Sawyer, re- receives the preference over all other kinds ever offered for family use. 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. SW Observe our nano on each bar.
