Republicans engaged in this good work.
When the income tax was first enacted as
a war measure, the representatives of both
parties voted for it; and now that it is to
be repealed, the measure should uot have
anything of a partisan character.
The income tax is clearly unconstitu
tional. It ia most odious because of its
inquisitorial character,. Jt is uftjajtbe
cause it is not levied on nil in cornea alike,
and because it does not bear equally on
all psrts of the country. It should be re
pealed it once. That is the true revenue
reform, and there ought not to be any op
position to it, in Congress or elsewhere.

Generation: A generation is the in
terval of time that elapse between the
birth of a father and the birth of his son, -and
wss generally used in computing con
siderable periods of time, both in sacred
and profdiiu history. The interval of a
general ion is consequently of uncertain
length, depends on the standard of hu
man life, and whether the generations are
reckoned by eldest, middle or youngest
sons. Thirty-three years have usually
been allowed ns the mean length of gen-
ciation, or three generations for ever,
hundred years. In compiling pedigree,
great attention is necessary to the number
of generations in sny given period, is
tbey form a guide to lira probability of
persons having sptung from any particu

to subject it; when done, to a careful re
