He did, however, ob

jcertain manufactured goods,; and argued that
it would disturb all tho interests of the country
while it would only produce $6,000,000.
Mr. Banuing, of Ohio, opposed the bilL and
particularlv the proposed increased tax on
whieky, which he thought would have the ef
fect of increasing smuggling and illicit distill
ing, and so reduce the revenue. He stated
that the revenue was greater when the tax was
70 cents a gallon, than when it was $2.00,
. Mr. Chittenden, of New York, considered the
bill erroneous, and characterized the fifth sec
tion as a bold and glaring fraud, like the "lead

: Mr. tjox, oi rsew lorx, in nis speech m
opposition to the bill, stated that the people of
the country had paid $7,000,000,000 in taxes in
the past two rears, which amounted t about
five per cent, per annum on our whole taxable
valuation. He quoted Gov.! Tilden, of New

In 18G4 spirits were tax'd twenty cents per
gallon, and the receipts were $28,431,000 ; and
when a year later the tax was increased to $ 1.50,
the receipts fell off to $10,000,000. In 1866
the tax -was raised to $2.00, and the receipts
ran np to $29,000,000, and in 1867, under the
same tax, dropped to- $28,000,000, and in 1S63
went down to $13,419,000. Theu the folly of
a high taxation was seen and the tax reduced
to fifty cents, and that year the receipts were
doubled, amounting to $33,285,000. In 1870
the same tax gave $38,000,000 ; but a rise to
seventy cents in 1S71 gave but $30,000,000.
Mr. Niblack, of Indiana, had thought for
years that the tariff should be revised ; but

Major Powell, in his very interesting
Scribner sketches of his voyage through
the Colorado canyon, tells us of a very
narrow escape from death he had. He
says: "We come to a place in the river
which seemed much worse than any we
had met in all its course. A little creek
came down from the right, and another,
just opposite, from the left. We landed
first on the right, and clambered up over
the granite pinnacles for a mile or two,
but could see no way by which we could
get down, and to run it would be sure
destruction. Then we crossed to examine
it on the left. High above the river we
could walk along on the top of the
granite, which was broken off at the
edge and set with crags and pinnacles, so
that it was very difficult to get a view
of the river at all. In my eagerness to
reach a point where I could see the roar
ing fall below, I went too far on the
wall, and could neither advance nor re
treat, and stood 3srith one foot on a little
projecting rock, and clung, with my hand
fixed in a little crevice. Finding I was
caught here, suspended four hundred feet
above the river," into which I should fall
if my footing failed, I called for help.
The men came and passed me a line, but
I could not let go the rock long enough
to take hold of it; then they brought two
or three of the longest oars. All this
took time, which seemed very precious
to me. But at last the blade of one of
the oars was pushed into a little, creVice
in the rock beyond me in such a manner
that they could hold me pressed against
the wall. Then another was fixed in
such a way that I could step on it,' and I

cutting off branches they should be cut

The American Rural Home says that
in western New York the medium and
marrow are most planted, and the white
kidney and early pea to a limited extent.
The medium is considered the most re
liable, as, from its early ripening, it is
less affected by the vicissitudes of the
season. It sells for less, however, than
the other varieties named. The marrow
is quite a popular variety, and on a
! . . . .
Buruug bou is very proaucuve. it is
quoted thirty-five cents a bushel higher
than medium in the Rochester market
now, and the name as kidney. The
white kidney has larger stalks, requires a
longer season to bo matured in, and is
more liable to be spoiled in ripening.
When everything, however, is favorable,
it will produce large crops. It will,
of course, make a difference in what way
the beans are planted as to the quantity
of seed required, but farmers generally
use about a bushel of . the marrows and
mediums to the acre, rather more of the
kidneys, and about half as much of the
