CORINNE DAILY IpURNAL. Wednesday Horning, Hay 3f 1871. Jr HISTORY. One of the Salt Lake dailies, professedly discussing the attitude of parties, holds, that if the Republicans continue the policy of high taxation, and exercise the bitter and implacable power of a conqueror without magnanimity, over the States lately in rebellion, they will be unsuccessful in 1872, etc. the Republicans shall continue the policy of high taxation, is altogether incomprehensible in view of what the Republicans have done. About ten years ago the country was torn in two by a gigantic revolt of one section of it against the established government. The party which stood by that Government in the four years war which followed, was obliged in so doing to tax everything and everybody. To do this, required a system of laws and officers almost uuknown to civilized man A conscientious government. eouhl- - neither eat, drink, sleep, work, walk, ride, drive, nor die without finding it necessary to pay a tax at every turn. There was a tax on every horse, mule, sheep, ox, cow, and on all they produced. Taxes were simple and compound, plain and involuted, rectangular, circular, and quadrilateral. They enveloped every man and every industry. The war for the Union ended ago, leaving us with a liquidated debt, with accrued interest, amounting to a little more than $2,S00,000,000, upon which the annual interest payment was $ I til, 832, 051. On the 1st of April, 1871, the principal of this debt had been reduced $531 ,683, 760, nearly $100,000,-00per annum, and the annual interest payment to about $114,000,000. Part of this reduction of interest was due to the refunding of bonds bearing 7.30 per cent. into. bonds bearing G per cent. These C per cents, are now being refunded in 5 and 4 j per cents., and when it shall have been done, the interest will fall below $100,000,000 a B - si-rea- rs 0 pay-xnen- ts jear. Meanwhile, taxation has been steadily reduced and simplified. In July, 1866, Congress repealed taxes which had the year before $66,000,000. In March following, like taxes, to the .amount of $40,000,000, were repealed. In February, 18G8, there were $25,000,-00- 0 additional repealed, and by theacts of March and July, same year, $45,000,-00- 0 more. Finally, by the act of July, 1870, $50,000,000 more were taken off, making a total reduction of internal revenue taxatiou in about four years, of $226,000,000, besides the repeal of about $30,000,000 of tariff duties, by act approved July 14, 1870 in all, $256,000,000. . The last reduction only went into full operation on the 1st of May, for which cause the country does not yet feel it, and many intelligent persons do not even know it. After this date no .special taxes are levied except ort manufacturers of, or dealers in distilled and fermented liquors and tobacco. There remains the income tax it is true, but with the exemption doubled and the rate halved, and divested of its inquisitorial features, since no one not having a' clear incomq of more than $2,000 a year is required to make re turn at all.. It. was retained by Bou-wel- l, Sherman, Schenck, and the to strengthen its credit sufficientlt, to enable the Government to refund ity 6 per .cents in 5s and 4Ls, and thus operation having been at last successt fully inaugurated, the income tax is sure to be repealed at the next session of Congress, so that it will never have to be paid again that is to say, tor any year subsequent to 1870 hut a Senate committee has been constituted to examine the whole question of taxation, including that oT the . reduction nud readjustment of the tariff during the congressional recess of this Summer. As the Result of that committees investigations, there is little doubt of the d pro-duce- rest-solel- y not-oul- y abolishment; of the internal revenue bureau altogether, and the readjustment of the tariff to the satisfaction of th class known as Revenue Reformers. So much for the financial policy of the Republican, party, taken as a whole. No Government was ever administered on earth more judicioulv, considering the circumstances, than that of the United States during the last ten years, viewed from a financial standpoint. That a system of high taxation was forced upou them by the rebellion, is true; that they have continued it longer than was necessary, or misapplied its proceeds, cannot be maintained at all. 0 It may be said that paying off a year of the principal of the debt, was had policy. But it was necessary in order to fund the 7.30 bonds, first into 6 per cents, and now into five and 4$ per cents. The compensation lies in the fact that, by this payment on tin principal and this refunding, more $100,-000,00- than 150,000,000 per annum interest money will be saved from this on. TELEGRAPHIC!

It has never ceased urgin' it, and six years to a day from the date of Lees surrender the House of by the decisive vote of 134 to 46, passed an amnesty bill granting full pardon to every one engaged in the rebellion former Congressmen, members of State Conventions who voted for secession, army and navy officers alone excepted. After one of the most stupendous, dangerousj desperate, and most causeless revolts of history, costing the country half a million of men and ten thousand millions of money, there was not an execution, not a trjal even, the principal actors were simply debarred from taking an active part in the government of the country they had so nearly destroyed for six or seven years, until foreign influences should have thrown the protection of great andjust laws around rich and poor, black and white, high and low, alike. They were only debarred from power that this humane end might be reached, and after showing that it must be reached, if at all, without their ageuev, and in opposition to In all this; where is the want of magnanimity, where the wanton exercise of the power of a conqueror, where indeed any hut the most beneficent exercise of power? Those who mouth such stuff as this of our contemporary that we have been consider-ineither know not or care not what they say. The Republican party will go into the Presidential campaign of 1872 with a record that will ensure them success a brighter, purer, more gallant and glorious record, it is impossible to conceive of a popular party. It vindicates and justifies popular institutions beyond question or cavil. Repre-sentative- s, .
