Taros—How tin Poor unit pays
It is a favorite theory of the. Radical
partytlmt tho poor mail pays no taxes;
that because lie docs not, nt nnimnl
periods, draw a check for so much
utnficy due tho government for income
tax, or tax on real estate, tlmt, there
fore', he is free from all burdens of this
character. This view is proclaimed
by Radical orators from the stump,
nnd repeated in the Journals of that
party. But there never, was a more
erroneous position assumed or stated:
In point of fact, the poor laboring man
pays as much, if not more tax, in pro
portion, than the rich man. To lie
sure tho tax is not direct, hut it is
unite the less certain and burdensome.
As taxation is imposed .upon land amt
money, the price of all kind of goods
advances. Tito laborer buying them
nt the retail store, has to pay not only
tho original value of tho tiling, hut all
the tax on it that lias been paid nt each
stage by the manufacturer or Importer,
tho wholesale dealer and tho retail
store-keeper. Tito tax is shifted froth
one to the. other, with additions at
each stage, until it comes to the custo
mer—tho ono who buys tho goods to
use and not to sell. And liuro the bur
den rests; lie must pay the whole ac
cumulated amount of taxation, and
get none of it back. As long ns tho
goods are being sold nnd transferred
from hand to hand; so lung iheiitxis
kept shirting from one man to another;
but when tho article ceases to bo turn
ed over'nnd becomes applied to the use
for which it was designed, then the tax
enn ho no further shifted. The man
who wears the shirt pays tho tax of
tho slore-kocper who sold it, of tho
wholesale dealer who supplied it to tile
store, and of every man who has hand
led it, back to the cotton-factory m 1-
lionnire in whose mills it was wovon.
As .Tctrersqn says: “Taxation Is likon
ball rolling down stair?, it bumps on
oaclt step, but it finally rests on the
lowest." That Is the working man,
and ho therefore is the most deeply in
terested in having un.lioncst, economi
cal government iu order that taxation
may not enhance the volume of all he
uses and supplies to ids family. The
Radicals are wasteful, extravagant,
corrupt. They linvo increased debt
nnd taxation, nnd will continue to do
so. Is stiuli a party entitled to the
support of working men ?—Philadel
Sensible.—In his brilliant Portland
speech, Richard O'Gnrmnn hit the nail

n turn, they were to he forwarded .to
Little Rock for distribution. . That
similar shipments liavo been going on
fur months past there can be no doubt,
Not many days since n miniature ars
enal was discovered in a privato resi
dence in Memphis, nnd broken up by
the authorities. This led to the fur
ther revelation that ono Iiarhcr Lewis,
county commissioner, and chairman of
tlte Radical .county executive commit
tee, was tho duly, appointed nnd au
thorized agent of tho leagues of West
Tennessee, for the procurement of nruis
nnd other warlike munitions from the
North, for tho blacks. Only the other
day some hundred stand of muskets
and several kegs of powder were found
in tho cabin of an old negro limn, in
tho villago of Raleigh, in tho same

perado, captured by tho officers of the
law, on the highway, was found to linvo"
in itis posscsssion ono ot these mus
kets, nnd confessed to haviugTcccivcd

All this simply points to the fact

going on, not only in Tcnncsseo and

tho use of tlte most dishonest and de

Hie next trial comes let us be better
prepared to guard tlio purity of the

The conduct of some nr the Radical
election-hoards in this city was ontrs-
