\ LKXANpRIA. '.".'M'ICSDAY EVENING. APRIL 5._ The Richmond Dispatch doesn't like the Gazette's advice, that tho coming Slate democratic convention should repudiate the platform adopted by the Iloanoke conven? tion. th? chief features of which are the abo itionofthe tax on whisky, and the reten? tion of the taxon the necessaries of life. Why that i.latforiu should be sacred is hard to tell. Certainly few men who are democrats from conscientious convictious can endorse either one of the two features referred to. Then, too, nobody seems willing to assume tho responsibility of the authoiship ol that platform, Mr. Barhcur doesn't hesitate to deny that he is at all responsible for It. And, it is said t>> a delegate to the conven? tion that adopted it, that it was passed nearly in the gray of the morning, after a \ rolong ed night session, when only a few members wer.- present, and I hey loo tired to take much interest in what was going on.

? ^^^^ FRIDAY EVENING. APRIL 6. From the dem :crats North and South, E>*Ht and Went; indeed from every where, except from a few In Virginia and a haifa dozen in Congress beaded by Mr. Randall, comes tbe democratic cry for a low tariff on the necessaries of life, and that the requisite revenue ?>- derived from a tax on luxuries. The.State democratic convention of Oregon on Wednesday last adopted the following democratic resolution : "We most earnestly and unqualifiedly in? dorse the policy of tariff revision and reduc? tion of the s-urp!u3 revenue to tho needs of tbe government's economical administra? tion, and believe that such a resolution is dictated by a B( und policy, and that unne? cessary taxation is unjust taxation and op? pression, and that the public revenueahould as ftir as possible be derived from taxes levied upon tho luxuries rather than tbe necessities of life."

But such an assertion can uot be substantiated. Let the war taxes be returned one at a time. To return the fifteen million direct land tax wou'd not cripple a treasury containing a surplus of a hundred million. Take that much out now, and return tho cotton tax subsequently. But even if both taxes wero returned at once the treasury would uot bo at all embarrassed,for even then there would be left io it fifty million more than enough for the current year's expense*, and the Mills bill would collect more than sufficient for any sub-sequent requirements.

Then they put their thinki:.^ cap* ou and ask, Why can't we build mills of our own and pocket the profits of manu? facture ourselves? The answer came in the abape of two well equipped establishments ia New Orleans. It was an experiment of course, and the dollars went into the specu Iation with some timidity. But toe spirit cf competition was vigorous and the love of nu honest penny honestly earned prevailed. Then a big building was put up in Wesson, Miss., for the same purpose. Well, tbe ven? ture wns an admirable success in tiotb in? stances. The Wesson company is going to put up another mill because the demand Ijr its product h...
