The tariflfon eugar raises the pnce at least one cent a pound, so that the legislation of Uncle Sam takeB out of the pockets of the people of the United Ctates $8,500 annually, and puts it into the pocket of Bishop Polk. Very kind to the Bishop!flrPettons are in circulation, praying the Legislature to ntnend the charter of the R. R. Company, by prohibiting the running of care on the Snbbnlh. Such a provisión, wo think, wonld be rfesirable and beneficial to the ommunity, and of no pecuniary detriment to the company.
