It is understood that it was resolved in caucus last night that the first step of the convention would be to declare All state offices vacant and to fill them with appointees acceptable to the Radi Al party. The recent appointments by general Mower with one or two exceptions do not satisfy the members of the convention. Or. Avery the newly appointed sheriff is in quiet Possession of Bis office. This morning he swore in most of his deputies. The courts proceeded to business which had been interrupted by the late confusion. Washington nov 23.�?the feeling regarding the impeachment is feverish. The Elee. Tion committee will not report on the Kentucky delegation until after the in Beachmont committee reports when unless the interests of the i peachers require their exclusion Tho delegation except major Yoang trom Mckee a District will doubtless to admitted. Washington nov. 24.�?general a. P. Howe of the freedmen a Bureau South to sell the Bureau property turned Over to it at. The close of the War for school purposes. Tho first Sale occurs on the 1st of december at Augusta. Tho following is Kelly a Resolution relative to the Cotton tax .1 resolved that the welfare of the people Tho maintenance of the Faith and the credit of Tho government requires the repeal of the tax imposed by existing Laws on Cotton an the productions of mechanical and manufacturing Industry. It is said that the Wool interest will oppose the repeal of the tax. A Washington nov. 23�? commissioner Wells report shows that when Cotton was based to oreo Centa per Pound the Pii amp of was forty cents and when taxed two and a half cents the Price was Twenty five cents Tho Cotton tax was called for and Only defended on the ground of necessity and was to be repealed when its continuance should prove a serious impediment to Homo production or an undesirable stimulus to foreign cultivators.1 these contingencies Are now imminent. The value of competing Cotton Baa been increased by improved machinery for working Itji More care is observed in handling it and by improved seed is yielding a better Staple. Whatever May be the caused India Cotton which formerly Boro the relation of one half to two thirds now bears Tho relation of two thirds to three quarters the value of american while a portion of the crop is fully equal to middling Uplands for heavy fabrics. Evidence exists showing that the present tax is equal to a Premium of at least 30 per cent or India Cotton Byr some authorities it it Alln jiul to. even greater. After quoting statistics of former years the report proceeds a in considering the subject of Cotton production in the a United states with reference to the influence of the tax it is desirable Quot Ioia Wolarge rather than a Small estimate of the present crop and we assume therefore the product of the year to be 2,770,000 Bales of 450 pounds each. If from this we deduct one million of Bales for Home consumption and for an addition to the Small Domestic Stock to be held Over we have one million seven Hundred seventy thousand Bales available Lor Export or two millions one a Hundred Ami Twenty live thousand Bales estimated at four Hundred pounds each. If now other countries shall produce As much Cotton As in 18g0�?and there is Rio evidence As yet of appreciable decrease the Quantity from other countries United states estimated in Bales of 4c0 pounds each will 66 2,485,0,00 Bales making v total available Cotton Supply to Europe of 4,010,00 Bales. Such will be equal to that of the year 18g0,when the re was undoubtedly a sir plus but of this Quantity the a United states will now furnish less than 1 o try cent instead of eighty five per cent As in the year referred to. In Short a under Tho stimulus of High prices the world has produced More Cotton than it can consume at the prices of the Day. To cheapen prices May greatly Exton d the Cona Pimption after recovery from the first Shock of so great a change but in this fall of prices the profits of the producer resting upon Tho higher prices which invited his outlay has to a very great extent and for the time been lost. When tie american crop was in its supremacy Tho aver age prices of Surat Cotton in Liverpool for Tho Twenty years from 1841 to 1860 ranged from 3d. To 54d. T j la when it was 3d. In j845, the import to great Britain was Only 155,000 Bales when it was 54d. In 1857, Tho import was 680,000 Bales. Thus it appears that Price regulated the Quantity imported and neither Tho import to Europe nor the Export from India was any measure of the production of that mysterious country though in annual average had been Only about 500,000 Bales Aud much of that to China. When Tho american War made its sudden Call for. Cotton in 18g1 and 18g2, India contributed Moro than Ono million Bales that is no evidence that there was any larger or More successful planting that year than previously Only that prices called it out and Tho Stock left for Home Uso was by so much the less doubtless in Tho succeed ing years Cotton planting in India was increased As elsewhere by Tho stimulus of wonderfully remunerative prices to the producers and forwarders. It. Is however Safe to say that Tybera has always at least in modern Days been a latent capacity in that country to throw upon the Market an extra and perhaps unexpected half million Bales of. Cotton in any year when the prices should offer sufficient inducement. And an equal Ca parity to consume at Homo Tho whole production when at so Low prices it Coull not be exported to Europe or China. Since the Conj Cletion of Many Hundred Miles frail ways i India that Power of adding promptly to Supply of Cotton has Bee if greatly increased. It therefore becomes evident that Low prices for Cotton must to anticipated fou a considerable period during which Tho Domestic productions should not. discouraged by the continued imposition of a direct tax. But with Tho Relief that will to offer ii by the prompt removal of the existing tax the commissioner fully believes that the uni Ted states will speedily regain control of the Cotton Market and again Supply by far the largest portion of the total demand of Europe for consumption. In this opinion moreover i10 finds himself sustained by what May be regarded As the Best authorities on Cotton in this country and particularly by the late commissioner of the United states to the Paris exposition the Hon. E. R. Mudge of Massachusetts to whom As chairman of o. Committee on the subject of the future Supply of Cotton was especially referred for investigation by his colleagues on the commission. Tho conclusion of Tho report of this Coxa Mission not heretofore made Public is follows 1 having carefully observed what has of Choei done and is doing by other nations the committee present the following conclusions 1. That Cotton growing in the a Southern. States if untaxed can be conducted profitably and successfully against All competitions elsewhere.2. That if burdened by a tax sufficient tags be Worth to the Treasury the Cost of collect Tion it cannot at present if Ever to such Esau fully produced. Quot a 3. That already familiar to. Our people Ira All its details it is the Only Industry immediately available and practicable to the great body of the Labouring population of Tho Sontz for the profitable employment of the suppl Ngy labor that is beyond the necessities of crops for subsistence in the production of Somo a thing Saleable and exchangeable whereby wealth can be regained., 4. That the importance of a Large production of Cotton As the chief Export Oil the country in adjusting balances of Trad iraqi Exchange and especially a its bearing upon the Publio debt held and to be Selcik abroad cannot Well be Over stated and so far transcends the value of the present tax that to preserve the latter at the Cost of losing , would to a half pc Nily Worth of Wisdom to a Pound of Folly. The whole amount of internal Revenue cute Rived from Tho tax of raw Cotton for Tho Fisak year ending june 30,1867, was $23,769,078 8o7, and although this sum comprises nearly Al amp the Revenue derived from the Southern Section of the country and constitutes an amount. 7 that can ill to spared from the Treasury Yei it under All the Ilia commission or has no hesitation in recommending to Ionia. Mediate passage by Congress of an. Act repeal 1 ing Tho entire tax upon raw Cotton and the amp same to take effect on its passage. As yet a amp a Small Quantity of the new crop of Cotton has been marketed list if the repealing not to delayed. To a later period it will Evide atly wools. Injustice to the producers who May be forced to Seii tither crop3 Forward immediately unless the removal of the tax should to take effect at the close of Tho present co Tola year sept. 1868. If a repeal of the tax to Tako effect Cimma Diatel should to enacted by Congress it i amp important that one contingency should a effectually provided against. Contracts it 22 understood Are proposed and possibly already made for. Tho Purchase of Cotton Tori unpaid 10 be held in store until the repealing legislation of Congress has taken effect this insuring to the Speculator or exporting flu Var a gain equivalent to the amount of the tas. It seems desirable therefore that the act of. Repeal should to so worded As to relieve irom. Tho payment of tax Only so much Cotton As at the Dato named in the act remained uns Omi by the producer. All Cotton having passes out of the hands of the producer to pay tha tax if it has not already done. So. Only in 1 this Way can the Relief go where it is intended Viz to the impoverished cultivator. Lit a May be interest Rig in this connection to mention that Tho committee of Ali commissioners to the Paris exposition assisted by b. K. Nourse esq., of Boston have collected and caused to to suitably arranged a series e a samples of Cotton from nearly All the Zottoli growing districts of the world which collection they proffer to Tho government with Tea suggestion that it be placed for preservation and reference in one of the Publio offices Washington in which Tho special commissioner cordially i am sir jars most respectfully David a.
