nut Pope hitd blamed a Union General
who had done hisduty nobly.
Mr. Negley, of Penra , and Mr. Fuller,

The Committee then rose and at 4:13 .

Sknath Feb. 16. Mr. Brown pre-1

objection to the bill was that it was un
constitutional. If this was well found
ed that ended the discussion. The bill
did not compel the State to takes to take
the money. The action of each State
was voluntary. He contended that
Congress had the power to appropriate
fumis for educational purposes. He
showed that millions cf dollars had
been appr jpriated ;for that purpose ia
the States, and declared that none of the

measure might fail, but he esteemed it
a great personal privilege, as well as a
high and patriotic duty, to gire it his

resumed, and pending a vote on the .
bill, the morning hour expired, and the '
Fitz John Porter bill was laid before the '
House in committee of the whole.
Mr. "Wheeler (Ala.) made a long
spee-h in favor of the bill, declaring!
that Porter, by his skill and intrepidity,
won more distinction than any other
officer of the Army of the Potomac.
In conclusion. Mr. Wheeler, speaking
of the attitude of himself and other ex
Confederates who supported the bill, i
"As gentlemen, we are obliged to do
frankly and fearlessly what we conceive
to be honorable and right: as servants
f the people, we roust strive to secure
this tardy justice to one who so ably ;
served them, and as citizenslof this :
great Republic, it is our duty and our
pride to cherish ;and defend its honor, !
and we therefore seek to efface this-1
blot upon the fair fame of our country. " ,
Mr. Cutcheon (Mich.) began his
speech i a opposition to the bill by say-1
"Mr. Chairman or. perhaps, I should
rather say "if the court please' the
tuprerae court-martial of the army is I
now in session. "We are now engaged j
in rewriting history. If history has'
been w ritten erroneously, it should be i
rew ritten at a time and under circum
stances which ensures greater and not '
less accuracy. '"
Mr. Cutcheon did not believe that
Congress had the constitutional power (
to revise the findings of a general oouit- :
martial when confirmed by the Presi-'
dent and executed by his orders, and '
w as opposed to the bill for the addition
al reason that ho was profoundly oon-1
vinced that the courtmartial hud ar- .
rived at a just conclusion at the time
when facts had been justly represented
that the verdics had been righteous and i
the sentence mei ited. Hethen reviewed
the operations oi' the Federal and Con-
federate forces on the 29th and 30th of
August, and argued that Porter had ,
been guilty of disobedience of orders. !
Grant had before him everything that I
would exculpate, nothing that would
c.ndenin. One of the reasons which j
had impelled Grant to change his views,
was that he had become convinced that
there had been no battle on the 29th.
Mr. Cutcheon proceeded to read from
reports made bv Pope. Sigel, Lee. Jack--on
and other commanders to shbw that I
a tierce engagement had taken place on .
licit day in which eijjht d i visions of the
i riion army and six divisions of the

lands adjacent to the uncompleted por
tions of the road, but Mr. McRae, of
Ark', offered as a substitute the bill of
the minority of the committee forfeiting
the entire grant.
Pending the discussion the morning
hour expired, and the Houses went into
committee of the whole, Mr. Springer
(111.) in the chair, on the Fitz John Por
Mr. Laird (Neb.) made a carefully
prepared argument in support of the
bill. He maintained that Porter was
innocent of any disloyalty either to
Gen. Pope or his country and said in re
gard to the preferences mads to Gen,
Grant that an argument which depend
ed on a ghost for its validity was already
undone. Mr. Laird concluded as fol
lows: "TV hen the roll should be called
he trusted he would be found Btili fol
io wing the leid of his old commander,
and do what Grant 'would do if living,
by voting for the restoration of Porter.'
Mr. Kelley of Pa., opposed the bill.
He quoted from McClellans "dispatch
to Porter, asking him not for the sake of
his country he knew his correspondent
too well for that but for "my sake" to
co-operate cordially with Gen. JPope.
Mr. Bragg ("Wis.) asserted that that
dispatch was written before Pope had
come within the lines of "Washington
and it had been answered from, the field..
Mr. Kelley replied that Pope was
falling back and his troops were coming
within the defenses of Washington.
'Think, "he exclaimed, inconolnsion,
"of Phil. Sheridan being where Porter
was; think of Hancock, think of any
soldier that you and I and all of us are
ready to honor, living through the 27,
28, 29 and SO of that month of August,
and then appealing to the country to
obliterate the findings ef a court which
Abraham Lincoln in his humanity was
constrained to approve."
Mr. Kelley asked leave to have printed
within his speech the review of the evi
dence given beforo the court-martial,
ptepared by Judge Advocate Holt, but
Mr. Bragg objected.
Mr. Thomas (III.) opposed the bill.
Mr. Oates (Ala.) made a speech in
support of the bill, and he was listened
to with great attention as he based his
argument upon his personal knowledge
of the incidents of the 29th of August.
Mr. "Weber (N. Y.) earnestly sup
ported the bill, and regretted that upon
this question he parted company with
many political friends whose motives
he did not impugn, but wbose conci
sions he could only explain as being
based on the theory that a favorable
consideration of the bill would reflect
on some whose names were the herit
age of the country.
The committee then rose, and the
House at 5:10 adjourned.
Erncl P. O. Feb. 10.
Editor Journal: Having heard that
the board of commissioners have al
lowed the chairman 5 per cent, of the
back taxes for collecting them, I desire
to know if there is any law empowering
them to pay him more than his per diem
It seems to me that the act imposing
such collection on him as chairman of
county commissioners implies that such
duty shall be performed as a commis
sioner whose pay is fixed by law at $2
per day: and if he was unwilling to as
sume the duty for the pay, he should
have resigned. How much is 5 per
cent, on back tax? How much does the
State pay for collecting her part of the
Is Craven county willing or able to
pav for collecting State taxes?
In response to your invitation I have
propounded the above questions by an
swering which you will oblige
A Constant Reader at Holly Hill.
The board of commissioners at the
January meeting, we believe, passed the
Ordered, That the chairman of the
board be allowed as compensation for
his services 5 per cent of all monies col
lected by him for the county, under the
act to enforce the collection of taxes due
the State passed by the last General As
sembly of North Carolina.
"We understand this to mean that the
chairman is to receive five per cent of
the funds he collects for the county;
whether or not the State pays anything
for the collection of her portion of these
back taxes we are not prepared to an
ew er. As to how much is five per cent
of the back taxes we can not answer for
the reason that we don't know how
much has been collected. When the
chairman reports to the board the
amount collected we will take pleasure
in publishing it for the information of
the tax-payers of the county.
As to whether there is any law for
making such an allowance, we know of
none. It was undoubtedly the inten
tion of the act that the board of com
missioners should receive these taxes at
their regular meeting without extra pay ;
and in nine-tenths of the counties in
North Carolina they could do this
without interfering with their
regular routine business. But
in Craven county there were several
hundred of these delinquents whose
lands had been deeded to the State, and
the short notice they had from the Sec
retary of State rendered it impossible
for the board to receive these taxes,
many of them running back several
vears. causing considerable trouble to
ascertain the amounts due, at the regu
lar session, consequently it become
necessary that either the whole board
should remain in session for this pur
pose or to appoint one of their number
to remain at the court house from day
to day until the rush was over. The
commissioners displayed good judg
ment in adopting the latter plan. But
w as not five per cent an extravagant
allowance? This is what our correspon
dent thinks and doubtless what every
other tax-payer of moderate means
thinks. But still it is not so extrava
gant as paying bills where no service
has been rendered.
We are truly glad the tax payers are
becoming aroused on the subject of
their county finances and taxes. The
county commissioners think to ignore
the subject and let the people forget it:
but they will learn sooner or later that
the people are in earnest. There are
two tilings that Craven county needs,
and she needs them badly:
Fir-t. a rigid enforcement of the law
iu regard to listing and collecting taxes,
Second, the most rigid economy iu
disbursing the cour.ty linnnces.
