A committee of conference appointed, consisting of Senators Sherman, Morrill of Vermont, and Hamilton of Maryland, and Representatives Schenck, Kelley, and James Brooks.

"Calculated upon the basis of the receipts of the fiscal year ending the 30th of June, 1869, which was at that time the only complete report we had before us, I made out by a close analysis of the bill, and as accurate a calculation as I could furnish to the House, a reduction of the internal taxes to the amount of $45.000,000, and of import duties to the amount of $20,000,000, making in the aggregate $65,000,000. After the bill had passed the House, however, and before any action upon it or change made by the Senate, the complete returns of internal revenue, but not of imports, were obtained for the year ending the 30th June, 1870, and the increase has been such that trying the bill by that standard it was found that the reduction of internal taxes as compared

import duties $27,000,000, making a reduction of $77,000,000, in the aggregate. By the striking off of some other taxes, including an additional deduction from the income tax, the tax on passports, and various other matters, I do not hesitate to say that the reduction by this bill, compared with the receipts of last year, will be to the people of this country an alleviation of the burdens of taxation from these two quarters, the internal taxes and import duties, of over $80,000,

000."
