No-Property Ertmpt from rcraii'on
Ihold to the same doctrine now which I
have always contended for hi the Senate ;
that neither the State nor the Nation can lacy=
fully exempt any species. of property from
taxation. If one species of property ran be
exempt from taxation, the same power can
exempt another, and another, until all sources
of revenue of-the State or Nation, are dried
up ; and the doctrine that one Legislature or
Congress can enact laws exempting proper
ty from taxation that will be binding upon
and fetter the hands of a succeeding Legisla
ture or Congress ' is still more abhorrent and
carries national Leprosy in its spinal marrow',
and is surely at this time inflicting a panty;
sis in-every limb of labor. The sin of ex
empting property of the most profitable kind
from the burthens of the government, and
placing it upon the shoulders of business and
prdduction, is so abhorrent to evert , principle
of justice, morality and public policy, that I
do not believe it lawful. , this nation has

Robert J. Walker Rapped• over the KnyekleA
If I understand the lion. Robert J. Walker,

which he negotiated aboutif paid in the man
ner designated by act of Congress, and the
face 4)f the bonds, would be an act of repudi
ation With all deference I differ with that
gentleman, and all others, who hold that we
are compelled by our own contract, or in
good conscience, to pay the principal of the
five-twenties in gold unless it is entirely con
venient for us to do so; and I contend that
it will be convenient, if we take the - Shackles
off the currency and put them on the Seem
tare, and let the Government issue the whble
currency, redeemable at her own treasury,
and that redemption will come when we ap
ply our means and ,credit to its best use.
You will here notice that before Mr. Walker
visited Europe, our liabilities were all paya
ble in what Congress termed "good .aild law
ful money ;" and every one who took our ob
ligations looked upon the face of the instru
ment we gave, and the act of Congress au
thorizing the issue, and saw that the word
"gold" was not to be found in either of them,
except for the interest ; leaving plainly the
inference that the principal of the five-twen
ties was not so to he paid. Mr. Walker.says
that he told them in Germany that they were
payable in gold. The price -which Ole
bonds sold is the best evidence that they did
not believe Mr. Walker. Bat if he did ri.II
them so, it is not known that he ever . exhib
ited in Europe or in this country. a power of
attorney to legislate for Congress, and it is
evident that in making their purchases they
were governed by their own interpreter. If
these men with whom Mr. Walker dealt in

Mr. Walker a commission for converting them
into gold at present rates, they- would still
Make out of the investment a sum sufficient
to gratify the cupidity of any white Jew, or
black hating Gentile; and his doctrine, that
the way to get out of debt is to borrow More
money, has not even the merit of originality
or plausibility to rest upon, and is a sugges
don that prodigality always acted upon.
A Dollar is a Dollar-L-ia Alper or Gold.
The Government asserted that for all put. :
poses a dollar of its greenbacks was equal in
valuelo a dollar of its gold; and those bonds
of the Government which were sold as paper
dollars, and at the purchasing power of a
paper. dollar, should be so paid, unless stipu
lated in the bonds that they should be paid
in gold. The-principle-is recognized through
out Christendom, and by all practice, as a
war necessity, that nations have the right to
coin money and regulate the valne thereof.
This Government asserted that right, and the
whole world had notice of it, and tbreign and

liabilities. When it is not thus just—when

of retiring the national bank promises, and
supplying their place with the issue of the
Government? What can be the- injustice of
saying to the holders - of the five-twenty
bonds, as they become due, "here are green

• ing, tax-paving, selisupporting, government
sustaining bond. Choose ye which ye will ?"
!The country, the Congress and the courts
said that our "greenbacks" were "good and
lawful money" before you bought them from
us, and in these, or their lawful equivalent,
you paid for the bonds, at a time when more
depreciated—at a gold standard—then they
are now. Gold has been made an article of
traffic by speculators. They have hoarded
it up, and have succeeded in fixing it to a
fictitious value .Is that any reason why the
Government, which alone has the • lawful
power to regulate all values, should be forced
to purchase it from these conspirators at fab
ulous prices ?
Th.e. Shyloeh Shown CP
In . the darkest hour that ever dawned up
on This nation ; in the :midst of an intes
tine war, ntiParalleled for the wickedness of
its purpose, the Shylocks of the land con
spired together. They :practically demand ,
of the Government her life or her gold bear
ing bonds for their own 'unredeemable cur
rency. They,got the bonds. Here, if capi
tal had conscience, it would have been satis
fied ; but it was not. It demanded ninety
per centum more in a currency better than
they gave, and they got it ; and they got
ninety per centum too much, which the Gov
ernment should retire from their benefit to
its own. Not satisfied with this double ex
tortion, capital demanded that its wealth,
much of it made out of the necessities of the
Government, should be forever exempt from
taxation—Government, State and local—and
the promise, so thr as taxing bonds for Gov
ernment purposes is concerned, is against
public policy and void. They demand more;
they demand thgl. a charter be given them,
exclusively, to monopolize, for their own un
paid benefit, the currency of the nation—an
inalienable boon, and which, if not inailenti
ble, but perpetually transferable, was worth
more than every honest- dollar expended' in
the war. History will record that, in this
last exaction, Shylock over-reached himself,
for the goose' in every machine shop, that
was to forever lay for him the golden egg,
was plucked to death by avarice. And the
egg in` het abdomen was swallowed by greed
:before it tOok shape. Mark you, Senators,
history will so record it.

An Emehtial
The principle of the right to tax all pro
perty for the staiwort 01 the Government is
as essential in vindicating a principle as its
execution may be in swing a country. Its
practice is as old as any government on earth.
Have not all nations made use of the tax
levy to reduce the rate of interest for money
which was borrowed at extravagant rates in
peace to save her life in war? History will
reproduce herself. One Congress did, in an
evil hour. release property from taxation.—
Those who received our bonds knew that it
was the right and the duty of the next Con
gress to inflict what the last released for na
tional purposes and national preservation.
The Government has a right to live, and it
cannot live without taxation, nor can this Re
public exist upon unjust taxation. Pennsyl
vania, and nearly all the States in the Union,
'and nearly all the governments on earth,
have been compelled to yield to the princi
ple that what one, Legislature. or Congress
may do another can undo. The principle is
indispensable in a Republic, and a Republic
cannot, I contend, live but in name, that does
not exempt labor, in all forms, from direct
taxation, but it must go turther and also pro
tect it bviarKs. Labor, in this Republic, is
the only soverrip who is above taxation.
A PrenibinA a Feend and Perjury
The exactions upon toil under our 'financial
and revenue :,ystent..s are loathed and feared
by every honest man who has studied them
and witnessed their workings Our system
is loathed because our revenue laws are pre
miums on fraud and perjury. Both the rev
enue and banking systems are feared, because
they stand upon the point of a musket's bay
onet while the breech rests upon sweat and
saltpetre.. The bulwarks of a republic are
within the hearts iaf its. own people.. Our
whole system of currency and finance (I tell
Congress in sorrow) has not patriotism enough
in it to convert one rebel, but enough rebel
lion to resurrect the Democratic party, unless
every principle in the internal revenue law
and currency leprosy is revised.

which rocks men to sleep at high twelve in

Greenbacks for Bonds—D4larAq-
The Government, in my humble judgment,
should make her own bonds the basis, mid
issue all the curreqy that any one may de
mand upon thetni'dollar for dollar. Timid•
men, who have not reflected on this subject,
tell us that if we let all who want currency
for bonds have It, to much would find its way
into circulation that its value would depreci
ate. The effect, from the nature of things
and the value of timings, will he just the re
verse. Currency cannot now purchase Gov
ernment bonds at par. The effect would be
to increase the value of greenbacks to the
value -of gold bearing bonds—an essential
step towards resumption—it will make all
our obligations equal in value, and the estab
lishing of the nation's own sinking fund
would enhance their -value to such an
extent that all out secunties will soon be
equal to gold. Let those who want cum - mcy
purchase it by depositing the bonds of the
Government •, -let the Government cut off the
coupons of all so deposited, in exchange for
currency, and put them in a sinking fund._
Give the Government the benefit arising from .

The ; Short Road to Glory
_ The shortest way, in my opinion, to re
sumption, as well as to the country's rescue,
is to make the currency free to all who will
pay for it in bonds of the Government, or in
bullion. I would go further and retire di:-
currency-when asked to do so. in exchange
for the bonds, until vecia payment came at
its own accord, enrcting six per cent fur the
time the currency was out, and adding it to
the sinking Alibi. I cannot see why this
would not give confidence that we had nrac
tically determined to pay our debts. It would
give confidence that all could have the. best
and safest circulating medium upon the earth
at six per cent. to all who had Government
securities or gold. It would not only regu
late values, but be an anchor to the anul of
commerce against expansion and contraction,
aud in no way interfere with individual and
associated - private banking. except that the
Gnvernm.'nt would issue,all the currency for
its own benefit, that bonds and bullion want

which, under the national banking system,
she give4 - to others. Let those national banks
now in existence do business like other peo

NO. 37
In lttltS4 did not all the Republicans and
part of the Democrats in both brandies of
the Legislature vote, from dire neceisity, that
our interest then !idling due in gold, for gold
borrowed, should then and in futtire-time be
paid in greenbacks? Did we not. .by act.of
this Legislature, require gold-bearing bonds,
payable in gold, both principal and interest,
fur gold borrowed, to be paid in green
backs ? And the Ryment on the principal
and interest of our public debt is going on
every day under this law ; and has not nearly
every State in the Union been compelled to
do the same? And all this talk about
ed faith," and this matter of conscience to
pay debts in a better currency- than we re
ceived or promised to pay, comes with a bad
grace Rom us, and the people will be very
likely to believe that its source is from other
motives than genuine integrity and public
policy. -
Let the Mother haw her OluTd.
This systemat does appear to me, if adopt
ed by the Government, would restore confi
dence, because it is a mathematical certainty
that by it we could arrive at the final liqui
dation of the debt, and that without taxing
productioiis. It would not be long until gold
interest bonds would be offered to the Iloy
irnment for. greenbacks; and when this is
done, specie payments will have taken a long
step in the only way that I can discover in
which they oug4t to travel. Confidence is
now more valuable and indispensable to re
sumption - than coin. If specie payments
were attempted with a difference of even ten
per cent. between rrapertmd gold, a spasmod
ic abortion and • discreditable Kral& would
be the result, and our last state would be
worse than the first. Let the creator and re•
deemer of our country's cdrrency have the
benefit of the labor of her own child, and let
her hold all who would deprive her of it as her
public enemy.
In the schemes betore Congress, I know of
no proposition as monstrous as that which
would seem to recognize the right of munici
palities or states to tax the credit-of the Gov
ernment. This is one of the most dangerous
phases that State rights ever assumed ; and
any attempt by Congress to make the Govern
ment liable for the local wants of the corn-
Munity, by allowing them to tax her bonds,
can have no sympathy with reflecting 'peo
ple. The- true policy of this country is to
keep her debt in the hands of her own pea •
pie, and-not to drive the Government debts
beyond the smell, of ward or township asses
s.or. No man would purchase n security of
the Governinent, if he for a moment believed
any local al thority had power to render them
valueless. The Government alone has the
right to. tax her own necessity—a right fund- •
•imental to a Republican form of government.
Let local property pay local taxes ; and Until .
this principle is well established, confidence
will not wash her feet within our doors.

So Hulk! from Cimoresa.
I have given my views on this currency
question at greater length than I intended,
but I had not time to make them more brief.
The eyes of the people.of the whole land are
riveted upon. Congress. Had I seen a rain
bow of hope from that quarter: I would not
have spoken. Congress, I fear, looks upon
national banks, and cowers before them.
From these banks, in my judgment, must be
.taken a right which is denied to all others,
before our Govertiment will sit firmly on 'a
pinnacle in the Synagogue of nations.

Senate as far as they gn; they are sound up

Third. The inalienable right to make ex

for our undivided benefit.
The tburth is the keystone to them all :
the practical enforcement that all men shall
stand before the ballot bOx as they stand be
fore God—equal.
