HISTORY AND PROGRESS OF TAXATIONâOne of the most important publications ever issued. On SATUR- DAY, MARCH 31, will this day be presented a Supple- ment to the STAND\RD OF FREEDOM, uniform in size with that journal, comprising thirty-two columns of closely-printed matter, which will at one view demon- strate the necessity of an immediate and thorough Financial Reform. The History and Progress of Tax- ation will be developed in its relation to 1st. The CROWN AND ARISTOCKACYâ2dly. THE PEOPLE-3rdly. THE EXECUTIVEâ4thly. THE ARMY AND NAvy-5thly. THE DIPLOMATIC STAFF-6thly. THE NATIONAL DEBT -7thly SINECURES, PENSIONS, AND RETIRING SALA- RIES; and--8thly. To LOCAL TAXATION. It is intended thus to exhibit to the nation, in one striking view, the wonderful GROWTH OF TAXATION in Great Britain from its simple and necessary scale to its present exorbitant and ruinous excess.âThe STANDARD OF FREEDOM is one of the largest papers allowed by law. Price 5d. or 5s. 3d. per quarter. To prevent disappointment, as the applications are very numerous from all parts of the kingdom, order without delay at the nearest newsvender in town or country. A ROYAL PRESENT.âMr. Joseph White, the emi- nent ship-builder, of Cowes has received a superb gold snuff-box, covered with brilliants, value 1,000 guineas, as a present from the Emperor of Russia, for services ren- dered to the imperial government, by having furnished the Emperor of Russia with some drawings for ships for the Russian navy. Mr. White is the builder of the finest brig in the Queen's service. "Boz" IN A NEW CHARACTER.âAt the Maryle- bone Police-office, a man named Heane, was brought up, having been captured by Mr. Charles Dickens and Mr. Mark Lemon, in the act of picking the pocket of the lat- ter. Mr. Dickens stated that he thought he had seen the prisoner in the House of Correction, upon which, the fellow exclaimedâ" Your worship, he must have been in quod himself, or he couldn't have seen me. I know these two gentlemen wellâthey're no better than swell- mob men, and get their living by buying stolen goods. (Laughter.) That one (pointing to Mr. Dickens) keeps a fence and I recollect him at the prison, where he was put in for six months, while I was there for only two." Both literary gentlemen seemed to enjoy ama- zingly the honour which the prisoner had, with such un- blushing effrontery, conferred upon them but, as may be readily imagined, neither of them confessed to having any connection whatever with that" highly respecta- ble" body, the swell mob, or to obtaining a livelihood by dealing in stolen goods.âThe prisoner was sent to goal for three months. THE NAVIGATION LAWS.âAn answer has been re- ceived by the English Government from the Court of Stockholm, extremely favourable to the views of the Ministry respecting the repeal of the Navigation Laws. His Swedish Majesty is ready to abolish all the existing restrictions on British vessels on the condition of reci- procity. THE ATTORNEY-GENERAL CHARGED WITH BRIBERY. -At Leives Assizes two cases were tried on Wednes- day and Thursday, both involving charges of bribery to promote the return of Mr. Jervis, son of the Attorney- General, for Horsham. The one action was brought against Mr. Edwin James, the barrister; the other against the Attorney-General; in both the juries re- turned verdicts fur the defendants A CALIVOUNIAN DEATH-BED.âThe California Herald abounds with stories of the privations and' wretchedness of many a long-eared Midas of the Sacramento. There is a stern moral in the subjoined :â"Many are dying from want of attendance and the ordinary comforts of life. while their haul earnings lie under their pillow (if pillow they have) in the s hape of from 1 to 101bs. of gold dust tied up in a dirty rag. Two of these cases occurred yesterday, and two more to day." To die from want of attendance and comforts," with gold for a pillow, is to die hard indeedâPunch
