WEDNESDAY, MAY , The Confession of Pfobst. If TnonHT had died persisting In his story of an accomplice In the murder of the Dkah Ingk, the theory that he had no confederate in the crime would have prevailed In the pub lic mind; and yet there U a solid satisfaction in having all doubt on that subject com pletely removed by his confession. Even the faintest apprehension that an undetected murderer was abroad in the land would not have been a pleasant tiling for any on'! to walk the streets or do down at night with, while there is something consolatory in the reflection that, whenever a great crime is committed, justice has overtaken all who were concerned in Its perpetration.

The Consolidated Debt BllL1 ., lira only serious objection which seems to be urged against Secretary McCulloch's plcn of funding the Interest-bearing portion of oar national debt into a long five per cent, loan, la to that feature of it which pro poses to make the stock entirely free of all taxation, municipal, State, or national. If this were wholly a new feature, it might be expected to encounter opposition; but it is not. Not a dollar of our national debt is now subject to municipal or State taxatian. It has nevor been the policy of the Government to subject its obligations to the uncertainties of such burdens, for the simple reason that 1: would tbereby'put itself completely at the mercy ol the States. A United States stock, subject to State or municipal taxation, might have- its entire Interest eaten up in that way, and thus become utterly valueless as an in vestment. The mo...
