THE WAB TAX. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 12 March 1862

THE WAB TAX. The general Tax Bill has been presented to Congress by the Committee having it in charge. It provides for thorough and heavy taxation, and imposes its burthens alike upon all classes, professions and callings. Nobody is exempt, and everybody is expected to "face the music." Even printers, who have.heretofore been taxed little or nothing beeause it was found impossible to collect more than a shilling at a time off of the poor devils, are compelled, by this bill, to shell out eagles and halfeagles without number and without a grunt. Where they are to come from, this "deponent saith not, and cannot say."— Perhaps some sympathizing friend will lend us a handful now and then ? We find printing paper is taxed 3 mills per pound, all advertisements are taxed 5 per cent., while all incomes above $600,00 are taxed 3 per cent., besides probably other forms of taxation of which we yet know not. This will take the greater part of the profits of every paper, and will injure the...

TUBBING THE WAB TO PABTIZAH PUEPOSES. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 12 March 1862

TUBBING THE WAB TO PABTIZAH PUEPOSES. The "Harrisburg Patriot" asserts a truth, warranted by facts, when it declares that the enemies of the Democratic party have sought to turn the excitement growing out of the war to the basest partizan purposes. While constantly insisting that the Northern people should be of one mind and heart, they have labored unceasingly to produce discord and division. Every man who is a Democrat, and insists upon maintaining Democratic principles and an organization which shall make those principles effective, is pointed at UB a traitor or a secret sympathizer with Secession by those who insolently arrogate to themselves all the patriotism in the land. If a Democrat cries out against the fraud and corruption, by means of which a gang of patriotic cormorants have made collossal fortunes, he is attempting to distract the people and embarrass the Administration. Public plunderers must not be disturbed in their infamous vocation. They must be permitted to...

-» ^ ^ » THE COMMISSIONERS AND THE ASSESSMENT. By an advertisement in another column, it will be seen that the Commissioners have considerably increased the valuation of real and pereonal property in several townships of the county. The propriety of correcting palpably erroneous assessments, with a view to equalizing the burthen of taxation, is too apparent to require defence or apology. No reasonable man will condemn the course the Commissioners have felt themselves constrained to take in the matter. On the contrary, we trust all will commend the step as obviously proper and just.
