national debt of thou sands of millions of we could BHUUU ui ait ever pay even the interest on the Capitalists in Europe did not imagine that republicans would voluntarily tax themselves to redeem a mountain of debt which would stagger the most powerful monarchical government in But we are paying the in terest BO and even portions of the by the result of direct that this exhibition of faith and sacrifice begins to raise our just so surely as water rises to its Figures are because they concentrate facts in their plainest and most direct The subjoined table which exhibits a comparative statement of the receipts and expenditures for the years 1865 und could be studied with benefit for for it is literully full of re Our receipts iu were less than our expen whereas in onr receipts were greater thau our ex What a magnificent bal ancesheet this is to show to the world We may say it is How grandly onr people stand up under a bur den of taxation that would crush almost any other It is because we are intelligent and that we can bear these sore repudiation is pcorned as the basest of all methods to clear the nation from its debt nies of Wisconsin with the Chicago for that would manifest ly tend towards making outside of our the centres of our business and And as we could not sub ject those cities to taxation we would therefore be deprived of considerable taxable pioperty by other and different would grow up within the limits of the Therefore we hail with pleasure the bill now before the which pos itively forbids tbe consolidation of the Milwaukee Prairie du Chien railroad or the Milwaukee Paul railroad with the This question is now occupying the attention olittte and we trust at this time jit will be settled so that here after there can be no ground for the which has so extensively that a plan has been on fobt among railroad managers to consolidate the Milwaukee Paul and Milwau kee Prairie dn Chien with the Chi cago i The Madison Journal has affected a horror for any such but we doubt whether it will favor this decisive i Suggestion 10 the The republican union members 01 the Legislature are well aware that un der an act of from the army and the have

C 46 98 8T 8 The West Virginia The report that President pending the Congressional canvass in in West had pardoned one huudred and ninetythree desert ers from the Union under the promise that they would vote the John son was an act of so outrageous u that there were none to defend for it further appeared that by the order of the these deserters drew seventyfive thousand dollars of pay and bounty from the Soldiers Asylum In defense of the it is now stated that these pardous were not granted until after the hence the deserters could not have voted for the Johnson We are gratified that the mat ter has assumed this because the iniquity of pardoning a under the promise that he would vote a certain political is beyond all The establishment of such a fact would be without fur ther evidence of other criu MO justify the impeachment of the patriotic people naturally abhor to be ruled by yet it is highly probable that the municipalcopperhead tickets in Madison and Ke have been elected by the YOlfcB OF This s so unjust and so discreditable to the that good citizens naturally ask a remedy from a republican If it requires an amendment to the State the Legislature should take immediate measures to sub mit it to the and it will be adopted by an overwhelming The sestion will continue for another and we trust that this matter will be attended to Fairchild is known to be
