And if ye do good to them ' which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do ovea the same. And if ye lend to them of -whom you hope to receive, what thank have ye ? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as ranch again.

%\t Ipnss, TUESDAY, AUGUST 18, 1857. THE PHILADELPHIA CUSTOM HOUSE. We have frequently heard the remark, that the operations of the National Government were by no means so tully understood and appreciated by a large portion of the American people, particularly those residing in the interior, as the movements of State, county, and municipal organizations. Whatever truth there may be in this opinion certainly applies with additional force to the collection of the National revenue. The taxes whiah. defray all local expenditures are direct, and every taxpayer is brought info communication with the tax-gatherer. The large revenues of the General Government are obtained in a very different manner. We hear of annual receipts and annual,expenditures of some $60,000,000 to $70,000,000, but the agents of the Goneral Government never apply to us individually for any portion of that sum. TVe have had terrific agitations on the tariff question, in which it has been very elaborately discussed...

OMMUNICATIONS Editor Press : Your admirablo, just, philosophio, and woll-sustaioed " leader" on our " Past. Prosent, and Future," in the Pbe-is of Saturday, the 15th instant, prompts me to offer a few remarks relative to one or two of the more salient points therein. The atrocities perpetrated by the Castllian and Lusitanian advonturers aro emblazoned on the hiBtorin pngo—indisputably—and, ergo, recognised by all nations. Tho result of their tyranny is exemplified by the rotributional justice of the Almighty nowhere more emphatically than in tho degraded and polluted dons of courtly intrigue in Madrid and Lisbon, than in tho blighting influence almost appronohing, if not surpa&sing, the dark, gloomy, revolting, and dissoluto relapso of the Ro¬ man Empire, which pervades the Spaniards and Portuguese of the present day. Vour remarks, sir, on the Anglo-Saxon raoe, are more congenial nud welcome to tho renectsnt mind, beoaugo they carry with ttiBm an amount of virtue, en...
