Comraission has made its 'firstTeport.
The changes they propose are numerous;
impdrtaht.and, we:believe,' in the main,
judicious.- Amocg them are the follow
ing: il- :
1. An exemption of all incomes below
$1,000 from. the Incoqse tax-. : - rr.i
2. A reduction cf .tax. on Distilled
Liquors from $2 to SI psr gallon. -; z

These modifications are proposed to
take effect on the first day .of July next,
or at the commencement of the next fis
cal year ; and . their, general, effect will
be a reduction of our present burden of
Internal Taxes by about one-fortht Yet
even wiih these meliorations, they: cal
culate that our Internal, Revenua will
amount, for the year ensuing, to no Jesj
than 8237,000,000, and our Duties cn-
Imports to S130.000.000, making an.ag
gregate revenue of 5367,000,000. ; If,
then, the cost of supporting our Govern
ment shall be S100..000.000 (and it cer
tainly oyght not to be more) and the in
terest on our Public Debt . should reach
8167,000,000 (which it will not,) there
would be left $100,000,000 to apply .to
the reduction of the principal of our Na
tional Debt, at which rate . it would be
utterly extinguished within twenty :to
twenty-five years. -Si. Jqt fitarld. ,

Df.,fackenzilie tells us -viih good hu
mor, an anecdote in the New York tJn
jon, which we have before heard verbal
ly related. It( was all about ascertain
Lady Middleton, who, contrary to her
most anxious wish, was unblessed with
any children. . After an absence of sev
eral years with her liege lord in Eng
land, the returned with, bim to reside for
a time on one of their Irish estates.-
As the carriage drove up. to the man
sion, she not ice" d several fine looking
children about, and having learned that
their mother was the wife of a great por
ter, she determined to interrogate her,
reJatiya to the cause of her fecundity; she
therefore, next day made her way down
to the porter's lodge, and commenced her
inquiries r '': "' - '
Wipse phildren are these, :ray good
wcrnen ?" ' ''
"All my own,' my good lady."
"'"Ah. indeed!" 1 :'
Yes's." ' '"' "'
"What I tn'ree infants, and all of the
?,, T . r ,
"Yes, ray lady, I had thre? the last
time." ; " : ' ' "
'"How long have 'you been married?"
'Three years, your Iaadship." ;
"And how many children 'havs yaa?"
"Seven, my Lad y." ; ' 4 ''7 ' ' ' V'
At list came the question7 of questfons
bow she came to' have the children ?
The poor woman, cot well knowing S7h'at
this catechism meant.and fcorwell know
ing how to Wrap up in delicate ' words
her idea of cause and effect, blushed and
orew confused, and at last, for want of
someihing tpsay replied : "I think it
must be the potatoes, m'y lady."
This" unfolded a theory of population
quite new to Lady Middleton, who ea
gerly demanded . "'The potatoes ! Do
yea eat much af thara V
"Oh, Yes, lady; very seldom we have
tread, and so take potatoes all the year
round." " .'
Greatly agitated with her new- infer
nation, the lady asked: "Aad whsre do
et tha potatoes V '. . t .,T
: .MWe grow iheu. ia cur littli girian,
my lady; rure. Pat tills it."
