X fc-md Character,
A good character is to a young man what a
li'ia foundation is to 'he artist who proposes
to erect a building on it. lie can build with
safety, and all who behold it will have con
f] lento in its solidity. A helping hand will
never be wanted, t ut let a single part of this
be defective, and you go at hazard, amidst
doubt and distrust, and ten to one, it will
tumble down at last and mingle all tbat was
built on it, in ruin. Without a good charac
ter, poverty is a curse; with it, it ig scarcely an
evil. Happiness cannot exist, where a good
character is not. All that is calm and blissful
in the sober scenes of life, ail that is soothing
in the vale of tears, centre in, and is dirived
from a good character, Being first and most
valuable, its acquirements should be tho para
mount object of youthful ambition.

This Internal Revenue. —The Commissioner
ot Internal Revenue has decided that all ex
penses for insurance upon property, and all ac
Inal losses in business, may be deducted from
tit- gross income of the year ; but losses sus
taine i after December 31, 18ti5, cannot reduce
the income for that year. Losses incurred in
the prosecution of one kind of business may be
deducted from the gains in another, but not
from the portions of income derived from fixed
invtstmtnts such as bonds, mortgages, rents
ard the like. The Assessor should also be
careful not to allow the deduction of amounts
claimed to have been lost in business, when in
reality they should be regarded as investments
or expenditure, as when merchants expend
money in burning or gardening, for recreation
or adornment rather than pecuniary profit.
Persons travelling about the country as agents
of manufacturers for dealers seeking orders for
goods as agents for one person or firms only
such as salaried clerks, or men hired by the
month, should not be required to take licenses
as commercial brokers.
Ail parts oi decision number 139 inconsistent

Points of a Goon Uoo.—The mere name
(breed) of a hog, says the Rural American, is
not always a criterion ot its excellence. Early
maturity and a tendency to take on flejh, will
do more towards making a,bcg valuable, than
any virtue contained in the mere title of Berk
shire. Suffolk, &0., for it may .‘possess more of
the valuable qualities of the breed. •
In the true*Berkshire, the result of a cress
between the Chinese and Neapolitan varieties,
we find the nearest approach to a desirable
staudatd. the chief points of which are as fol
lows: the breast and loins should be broad,
the bone anu joints small, and the legs just
long enough to prevent the belly from touch
ing the ground; the feet should be firm, even,
upright and sound: the head should be btoad
and thick: the snout short, and the ears light,
thin and inclined slightly forward.
N'or is color to be overlooked in determining
the breed ot the animal. A dark skin and thin
hair shows‘Neapolitan blood; a white skin and
medium size indicate the Chinese breed, while
a light or reddish hue, with dark spots, denotes
Pskips cf Criscl’Ne.— The other day a man
got entangled in the crinoline of a woman who
was walking along Ludgate Hill, London, end
was thrown to the ground and so severely
injured that death ensued from effusion of
blood on the brain.
The most serious obstacle to'the speedy re
vival of business in the t?ouih and the efficient
development cf her resources, is the want of
both capital and labor. These have been
wasted to feucb an extent, by four years of war,
tbat the supply available within our holders is
entirely inadequate to our wants. If every dol
lar and every arm were applied to th‘ thou
sand avenues of profitable invedment, which
our diversified resources present, the effect
would be barely the opening up of the way to
the grand achievements which constantly beck
on us onward. Our labor system has been
sadly disorganized, and the result thereof is
seen on every hand.
The demands of trade require ail the capital
that is left us. There is but little to move
tbe arms of artizans to new industrial enter
pi:ze. Money and muscle are the great prac
tical necessities of the times. These must be
introduc'd from abroad. The artizan and
thrif y laborer of the new and old world can
undoubtedly better their condition in this sun
ny sphere. Unfortunately the spirit and tem
per of our people have been so greatly rnisrep
resented as to divert the tide of immigration to
the West; while, a f the same time, tbcße re
ports have a tendency to deter investment of
Northern capital among us. Sensational re
ports are industriously and purposely circu
lated which lead those not familiar with the
facts in the cage to believe tbat we are still re
bellious ; tbat owing to passion and prejudice,
Northern men are not safe in our midst; that
from the jealousy of the freedmt-n, Europeans
would be in danger. And thus it is that our
fields are suffered to lie comparatively idle,
and the hum of industry is but feebly heard,
if at all, amid tbe desolation which broods over
our once beautilul land.
It is no easy work to make headway against
these ban iers to our future progress, there
;s so much of passion naturally intermingled
with the memories of our late struggle, on
both sides, that it is difficult for either to form
a correct estimate of the other. Especially is it
difficult for the South to suosessfully and effec
tually combat the countless emissaries cf mis
chief who are bearing false witness against her
in and out of Congrqgs, in pulpit, press and par
lor ; in fact, everywhere a convert can be made
to tho leveling doctrine which rule the hour.
Our only hope is in bearing cur heads aloft,
showing ourselves to he os citizens what we
were as soldiers—devotees of principle, un
swerving advocates of constitutional law and
liberty. By continuing strictly conservative
our enemies’ statements will be exhibited in
their true light, and we shall find a remedy for
and a happy deliverance from the troubles
which environ us.
foutbern (QMsdppi) Railroad.
We bad the pleasure of a call from M.
Emanuel,'Esq., President of tbe above Railroad,
and were gratified to learn from him that the
affairs of the Company are about being placed
upon a satisfactory footing. Ho has just re
turned from Europe, whither he bad gone to
effect an arrangement with the foreign bond
holders, to get an extension of time on the
Bonds due or falling due in a short time. We
Biro glad to learn that bis mission was entirely
successful. All the foreign bond-holders
teadily assented to the substitution of the
Conpanj’s bonds falling due in 181)0 and bear
ing interest at. the rate of 7 per cent, in lieu of
the present bonds now held by them. The
holders of these bonds in this country, so far
as they have been heard from, have unani
mously consented to this arrangement, and
thut the Company are relieved from the em
barrassments growing out of the necessity of
making immediate provisions for tbe payment
of the bonded debt now and past due.
Tho Company being thus left free to appro
priate its immediate earnings in repairing the
road and reconstructing bridges, and in pur
chasing rolling stock, to refit the road, the
work has been and will be pushed with vigor
Tho cars now run over its entire length from
Vicksburg to Meridian, a distance of 146 miles.
There is a break in the transit at Big Black
liver, near Jackson, at present, which will be
overcome in a few days, by the completion,
over that stream, of aspendid iron bridge.
This is an important link in our Southern
Rairload system, bringing this place and the
cities of Charleston and Savannah in direct
communication by rail with the Mississippi
river at Vicksburg. The only break iftvv in
the line is the gap of forty three miles between
Montgomery and Selma, and which is now in
course of construction, and will be completed
within a year. With the completion of our
own road to Macon, we will then have a con
tinuous and almost an entiie rail communica
tion with Vicksburg via Macon and Columbus,
through Montgomery, in addition to the one
already in operation by Atlanta and West
Point, Selma. Meridian and Jackson, and cars
loaded with produce at Vicksburg can be
brought through to this city without a single
chango. This line will be a strong competition
of the Memphis and Charleston, and Louisville
and Nashville routes for the great Western
trade and travel. The low grades o' the
Southern line and its exemption from sharp
curves wili enable it to bring merchant;ise from
Vicksburg at a much lower rate than at pre
sent demanded by the roads connecting with
Memphis and Nashville.
We chronicle with pleasuvo these indica
tions of returning prosperity iu our Southern
country, and hope ere long to see al! uur pub

The Income Tax.
It should be remembered by tax payers, says
the New York Evening Post, that the Ist of
May is the time fixed by the internal
law for the return of schedules of incomes to
the as-istant assessors. The amended law of
March 3, 1865, is still in force, and it is offi
cially announced that the assessment cf this
year will be made in accordance with its pro
visions, regardless of any action of Congress
on the new tax bill just reported to the House.
The Senate refused to concur iu the House
resolution providing for an extension of lime
for two months, in order to permit the new
law to go into operation.
The duties on incomes are payable within
sixty days alter the return of the schedule to
the assessor— that is. on or before the 30th of
June. The income must be reckoned lor the
year ending December 31. 1863, and the tax is
5 per cent, on all sums between S6OO and
$5,000, and 10 per cent, on the excess over
$5,000. The deductions permitted are :
1. The snm of S6OO from all incomes.
2. All national, State, county and municipal
trxes paid within the year (including the in
come tax paid last summer.)
3. The amount paid for rent, or the rental
value of any homestead occupied by the tax
: pryer or his family, iu his owu right or iu the
right of his wife.
1. The amount paid for nsual or ordinary
repaifs, taking the average of the preceding
These are all the deductions that can be
The income tax is a lien upon property if not
paid within the time fixed by law, and the col
lectors are invested with lull powers to take
legal proceedings sot distraint and collection.
The proper observance of the time and man
ner of paymeat will therefore save the tax
payer much trouble.

Liverpool, Friday, April 13.
Cotton.—The course of the market during
the past week has been uninterruptedly down
wards with extreme irregularity of prices. On
Wednesday morning there was an increased
demand, but it did not last the day out. The
influences alluded to in our last report all con
tinued with great force against the market,
and have caused the very serious decline of
about per ib in American, and of 31 or
more in the other descriptions of cotton, and
we close without perceptible indication of a
rally. The transactions in cotton to arrive are
numerous, at a fall in prices in proportion to
those for cotton on the spot. The demand for
sea islands has been very freely met, and prices
of the medium qualities have been rather ir
regular at a decline of Id to 2d per lb within
the fortnight; sales of the week, 360 bags.
The following figures are from the Liverpool
Cotton Brokers’ Association Circular of last
Sales of the week, on speculation, 3,560
bales; to exporters, 13,140 bales; to the trade,
32 400 bales-total, 49,100 bales; of which
2,150 were American. Imports of the week,
65,191 bales, of which 25,116 were American.
Estimated Stock. 676,220 bales, ol which 306,-
920 bales are American; against 600,530 bales
same time last year, of 62,070 were American.

- Money has been in very good demand at
about bank rate, 6 per cent. The reserve ol
the Ban* ot England is £7,188,763, which, com
pared with last week, is an increase of £269,-
Manchester, April 14.
The market is very much shaken, and prices
have the same downward tendency which
characterizes our market, and it is not likely
that much steadiness will be found until things
right themselves here.
Cotton continues in the same deplorable state
reported above; yest-rday the market fell
from 11 to £ 1 per lb; Middling Orleans at
about 15Jd; sales 7,000 bales. To-day there
is a further decline, increased irregularity and
quotations quite nominal ; buyers name very
low prices, which, in some instances, are accept
ed; the sales may reach 5,000 or 6,000 bales.
The following is from a large and reliable
Liverpool, 14th April, 1866.
la addition to previous causes of decline, we
have this week had a pressure by holders hard
up for cash, and a change of wind has brought
us about 100.000 bales of cotton, a large por
tion ol which having been sold, to arrive, will
require prompt providing for.
Our additional troubles are the uncertainty
of German matters, and continued free receipts
at New Orleans, a.l of which alarm holders
and danse distrust, both with home and foreign
FpiDUtilf# . ,
Nothing whatever is doing m Manchester,
buyers and sellers preferring to look on until
they find out where the decline is to end.
