Pcrhips tor realfiIs above fated, notnotion
was tlaile fir a dry tax but a cliimmiltae was rai
fitl to consider genetilly of ways and means to
apply the tr al'ury. Their report conilincd of two
mc.laurcs, the one, i bill inmp.(fig duties upon
lic, nfed vellum, parchment ahld paper I the other,
ba bill for granting an impo'lt duty of five per cent.
to the United States, to be in force wherever
twelve States in the union Ihould agree to it t and
granting likewife an annual tat of a4.4l7 dollars,
being the State's proportion of the remainder due
for the Intetlft of the public debt, after dedbllfing
the proceeds of the impeft, for the term of twenty
five years, agreeable to the recommrindation of
Conerefs of April it, l783. *
The pafllin of a Stamp-At was found to be one
of the moll difficult measures that could have oc-
curred. The weight of the dutiie was adt etccf-
five, nor ;he mode of colleclng infeafible. The
right of levying the tax was not unconftitutlonal,
and eCcifte have been found tobe an afrymode of
raising p revenue. But it was the mcalure that
Britain had adopted to cicrcile her pretended
right of taation; in he. hsadl it has been pollut-
ed, and it was to be feared, that the name had
become too infamous to allow that credit to itL


principles, which peihaps they in fat dlefrrved
.uch were faid Iu be the prejudices ofthe people I
Uoder tLhf ciit"mlftainccs, many members were
for refrr, ing it to the opinion of their conflituent
previous to its completion But others opposed
this fep, as the effect of a timidity unworthy of
legillators. They well recollcbted the unpopula-
rity of the cxcic laws at the bIginning, which
hail now lIecome a favourite tax with the people.
Ikidule, the very proposing of the guellion would
imply a diltrult ofthe bill, that, in all nrobahility,
would be decisive against it. The difficulties at-
ending the hitlfinln were not corfned to this pint:
The citablilhing of theduliedarticle-and Ihe rates
of payment, was alfo greatly embarrafTed. The
jealolify between the commercial and landed in-
terefla contibuted not a little ta this; a jealotfy
crr to be lamented, and shilh we will venture to
fay it is equally iljurions to both intercis, whetr
wel; underflood. The bill, neverthichcf. was held
up by a finally, though firm majority ; and having
hcin contneled in Fcry flare, was now fuflfred to
rift on the table, while the lloufe turned their
attention to the fecond part of the report of the
committee of ways and meann. This confined of
two nolijti, the one, a giant oi an Impof dtty to
the United Statcs, by It States in the union; the
other, a dry tax for the fumr afore-mentioned.
for the pace of Is years, in order to dirchargc
the national debt. The merits of the former flb-
jit had been large'y taken up in the bill already
defetihed, Mr taxiig articles imported from Slates
which were delinquent in a like mrafure, and par-
fed without oppofitiln: But tite latter fubi r met
with a very different decision -Whether it was
from an idea that the impoft duly alone would be
a fufficient li. king fund fur the life nf the union,
though it was not calculated at more than a million
of dollars annually, or whether the dificelties of
railing moaits by a dry tax, imprrefed the Houle
with a firongtr idea ofthe rragnitude ofthe grant;
certain it i, that the latter part ofthe report wan
rejaftcd by a iumecrous majority; while the for-
mer, though founded on the fame recommenda-
tion of Cooagrefi, and forming a part of the fame
fylem, was adopted without a division. Thus
partially accepted, the bill was transferred to the
Senate, but did not aln their conclrrence. The
rigour with which thisbill was handed, however.
in all probability. laid the foundation of a better
fortilne for the Itamp bill. It was now confidently
affected, that genllemen could not fit till, and
with an inflexible obfinacy rjr every means that
were offered for racing the moticLs. If our cre-
ditors in Europe anl at home. were to be denied
their demands, lill the civil lift furely were not to
be fta ved. In the present ate of things, fo trifling
was the produce of the land tax, that without
further resources, lawq cou'd neither be made ntr
executedl: Andto withhold the grant, was in fad.
to flop the wheels of oervmriit.-From wfaltever
motives it might have arifcn, the bill now galned
additional ftpporters, and was canied to the e-
ate for their eonctrrenee. After fCme alterations
in the rates of the tax on federal articles, it was
finally agreed to by all branches of government,
ard Is now become an ad.
ALong the memorable events of tbis fteiin,
Iay be reckoned the grant ofCharlelon Ferry,
during the term of forty years, to the propriety
of the bridge, proposed to be built overth river h
that place. A measure afifeng to aterjaal an l-
teration iT the alue of ciates,lhould not be fop
poeid to pafs without oppoltion. Orat efforts
were made to throw the bridge overtbe riverfrom
Barton's pnlntin BOlRan, lo Leehmere'a point ea
the opposite mAr. lBt after accurately furey-
log the roai and founding the river, government
were deci dly In four of the former paffage.
One good effr that will arie from the decfion,
and which poSbly had fome weight in hanging it
about. It, that the unfortunate Inhabitants of
Chareftdn will receive a benefit, that may ferve
in fome degree, to wipe away the recolletioa
thclr fuffrlnas in the war.
