Dixon's Apology for *» Iiord" Bacon. * Mr. Bepworth Dixon, editor of the Lon don Jlthenceum has just given to the world a volume in which, with _oonsiderable ability, much earnestness, and great labor, he endeavors to show, not exactly that black is white, but that Chancellor Bacon's black is not quite so dark-complexiQned as, for two centuries and a half, all the world hasbeMeved it to be. In a word, Mr. Dixonhas taken great pains to whitewash Francis Bacon. ; ; In doing this, he severely commenlimpon the poetry of Pope, in which Bacon had been handed down an t,h_« " Wisest, brightest, meanest of _ma.nki_^ i upon the prose of Lords Macanlay and (lampbell, which has related or commented_|npon the corrupt conduct of the disgraced arid degraded Judge; and upon the contenmorary evidence which had so completely hedged in Bacon with proofs of moral tnrpitude«r corruption, by money-bribeo, in office—as to leave Mm no chance, at last, but . foU confessi...

\ Letter from _Harrisburg. {_Correspondence of The Tress,] _HARBiSBUiia, February 13. A modest proposition is before the Legislature fram;the Delaware and Hudson Canal Company—an improvement of one hundred and eight miles in length, twenty-five of which are in Pennsylvania, and the balance in the State of Sew York. It Is for the State to repay $26,478, which they claim is an overpayment in the amount of taxes paid into the State Treasury. It is claimed on the ground ef equity, inasmuch as it appears the State is not legally bound to do so. Under the general law of 1840/ taxing corporations, demanded at that time by the .languishing condition of the credit of the State, all th«f Improvements chartered by our State cheerfully paid their proportion. The Delaware and Hudson _Compaay resistedand under the legal technicality that it was chartered by the State of New York, and that the transfer of the corporate privileges by Maurice Wurtzto , whom the Pennsylvania portion of the improv...

The Georgia Guns. The New Yerk Tribune of Tuesday says: Notwithstanding the vaunt contained in the telegram of Qov. Brownthat the objeot of the seizure of the New York vessels lying at Savannah had been accomplished, and the rights of the citizens of Georgia vindicated, the fact nevertheless remains that the portion of muskets seized from on board the Monticello, belonging to parties in that State, is still ia the possession of Mr. Kennedy, superintendent of the police. Oar reporter called at _headquarters last evening, when Mr. Kennedy made the following declaration: " I still hold the tea oases, and am determined to do so, until compelled to deliver them up by legal process." The matter may be thus summed up in a single sentence : The 28 oases of _moskets consigned to Alabama were delivered up last Thursday en a writ of replevin, but the 10 oases consigned to Georgia have never left the custody of the superintendent of poiloe. They now await a claimant. The Georgian view of the ...

To the Select and Common Councils of Philadelphia. [For The Press.] It may be late to make any suggestions regard-Ing the " tax levy "of the present year, (1861,) or I would urge upon your notiee, as deserving of consideration, the propriety of establishing a more _jasv and uniform mode of valuations. To my certain knowledge, property in some of the wards of this city is not valued by the assessors at half the amount that other property, having no greater selling value, nor producing any more rental, in other localities of the city, is assessed at. The same discrepancies may, and doubtless do, exist in the same ward between properties owned by different individuals. As I onoe was told by a knowing individual to whom I had expressed surprise that his property was worth more than twofifths of the value of mine, and yet his taxes were less than one-fifth of the sum whioh I was required to pay* his reply was, " I always manage to keep np a good understanding with the assessor. " I p...
