The Tax Bill which passed both houses of the Legislature, in 1844, has received the signature of Gov. Porter, and has consequently become a law. It levies a tax of three mills on every dollar of the valuation of real and personal property in the State, which it is estimated will exceed $600,000,000. The tax, of course, will amount to over $1,800,000. The revenue derived from other taxes will amount to $400,000, and the net income of the public works, is estimated, at the minimum, at $550,000, making an annual revenue, in all, of $2,750,000. The interest on the public debt of every description, is about $2,000,000, and the expenses of government, including appropriations to the public schools, less than $600,000. Ample provision is therefore made to enable the State hereafter to meet its engagements, and for the restoration of the public credit.
