THE DEFUNCT STAMP LAW.
NO MORE STAMPS.
The End of a-PuWe Nuisance -When
Stamps are Required and When
. -Not- Hote to Redeem Tlum
IMPORTANT FACTSFOR MERCHANTS
AND BUSINESS MEN.
The repeal oftbe,Stamp Act, which
went into operation on the 1st October
is an event that will bring rejoicing brer
uie entire countiy. Everybody knows
and rejoices that the onerous, and extreme
ly troublesome bete notr has been effaced
from the statute -books of the land. Stamp
duties have always been obnoxious to the
American people, and the fact of their
oaving submitted to it tor such a length
of time iii an evidence of their patriotism
and good nature that does credit to them.
It is not our purpose to enquire into' the
reasons that induced the last Congress to
repeal this obnoxious law ; ft is sufficient
thai it has been repealed at least in
many of its ratit obnoxious features and
for the imformation of the readers of the
Courier, we propese to-day to give a brief
explanation of the changed law, as well
as the modus operandi of redeeming such
sumps as may be on hand after to day,
and tor which there is no farther use.
THE EEPEAIXG ACT.

which repeals the Stamp Act, is as fob.

! HOW TO KEDEEM STAMPS.
;Of course there will still leraiin in cir
culation a large quantity of stamps wliich
will after to-day be useless.
J The Treasury Department of the
United State has m.ide arrangements for
ihe rodemptioni of al such stamps, and
has issued circulars with the neeeesary
instruction to the assessors and collectors
of Internal Revenue. I
The following circular will be found to
contain the directions, for redeeming use

partment : !
. The first Comptroller of the Treasury

laws, to which our country looks, for its
revenue, should be dictated wholly by
rules of equity and justice, and so as to

interests and all classy. Take off the
party whip, allow the members of Con
gress to consult the general interests of
their respective constituents in framing
the tariff laws, and I believe we would
find every interest much better served and
protected than it now is.
There is something reassuring in the
significant remark of Governor Curtin in
