EQUALIZATION OF STATE TAX. In pursuance of the Act of the Legislature approved April 1 1854, the State Board of Equalization assembled at the Capitol on the third Monday of September:

Present, the Governor, Lient. Governor, Secretary of State, State Treasurer, Attorney General, and State Superintendent.

On the 21st an equalization was established, a statement of which will be found in tabular form in the document annexed marked "T”.

The board were somewhat embarrassed in their efforts to arrive at an equitable apportionment of the tax to the several counties, from a failure on the part of about one half of them to make the returns required by the Act. Taking the imperfect returns of previous years, and such as were made for the present year, (the latter not all made in conformity with law,) as the basis of their action, they were obliged to draw more largely than they desired upon the diseretion allowed them; and from these and “the best sources of information within their reach," an apportionment was determined which if not strictly just to all the counties, they hope is as nearly so as circumstances wonld permit.
