Among our telegraph dispatches of Thursday morning occurred the following extract from the Washington correspondence of the N. Y. Tribune:
“It is known here, that a secret organization exists at Dubuque, Iowa, to resist the collection of federal taxes. The ringleaders in this movement are known to the Government, and its eye is upon them.”
This is one of the direct consequences of the treasonable teachings of the Dubuque Herald. If the names of these “ringleaders” ever are made public, we predict that Dennis A. Mahony and George W. Jones will be found to figure conspicuously among them.
