competitor, down with the duty. If a
s'loemaktr or a hatter, by making belter
or cheaper hats or shoes, had got posses
sion of the market, the eye of this free
trade system was fastened on him like a
vulture. The Secretary found he was
doing too well, and the duty mu.t be re
duced to let in the foreigner. Such was
the plan of this Administration. The
mechanic, finding his protection thus di
minished, and having, no oilier resource
but his business, would go on," to work,
to work harder than before, and when by
working out of hours, he had contrived
to gel over the opposition of his Govern
ment, and began to get tcgeihcr a litlle
profit, the same doctrine would repeat the
process; the duty would be evidently too
high down with it! The "poor man"
would now take his children from school
end bridg them into the shop. They loo
would now work, while the man himself
worked and harder. Hut what would be
the result? It would only bring him un
der the Secretary's rule; the duty must be
again lowered, and still go on to be low
ered, more and more, till at last this free
bora American must be'ground down by
the action of his own Government to he
degraded and wretched condition of an
English pauper or Russian serf. The
moment an American laborer succeeded
by his exertions in shutting out foreign
competition, the foreigner must be let in
and put over him. What sort of a rule
was this? For whom would one suppose
it to be made made? For the American
manufacturer, or the European? Clearly
it was a rule for the benefit of the foreign
er. And could an independent and intel
ligent American consent to live under
such a rule: I he moment the American
rises to his feci, in his struggle with for
eigners for the American market, he is to
be knocked down by this Executive
roKEE, and walked ovkr by his Secreta
ry Walker. A laugh. And this was
their American systk.m. Mr. S. insisted
it was a British system. It was just
puch a system as Sir Robert Peel would
have recommended, could behave spoken
through President Polk as his trumpet:
its practical, its universal operation, would
be what he had just now described. And
would the House endorse a system like
this? This was the far-famed tree
trade system," now for the first time
promulgated by an American fiscal offi
cer. Oh how this tender-hearted Secre
tary did love the "poor man!" His love
was so great that he would bring him
down to a level with the British paupers!
Since the improvements in steam, the
cost of transportation was comparatively
nothing. Take ofl" the duty, and the Bri
tish workshops would be brought to our
door. Suppose these British loborers
were in Alexandria, working at twenty
five cents, was any man so blind as not to
sec that they must soon break down the
workmen of Washington? The employ
er would soon begin to talk to them in a
very intelligible language. My com
petitors in Alexandria get labor for twenty-five
cents a day, and yoa must t?ke the
tame or quit." Now where was the dif
ference, whether the distance was a liule
greater or less? The practical operation
of the system would bejust the same.
And this was the blessed system of free
trade! The workmen of England and
France could work cheaper than ours, and
free-trade doctrine held that we must buy
wherever wc could buy cheapest. Down
vent the dutv, in came foreign goods, out
went American money; and out and out it
vent till we h;id no more money to .send,
and the people and their Government be
came bankrupt together. Tins was the
blessing which the compassionable Secre
tary had for the "poor man!"" Oh,
how he loved him! lie brought in "die
poor man" ten times in two paragraphs!
But his love would be very apt to oper
ate like the love a certain h?ar once had
for a "poor man," when he hugged him
to death. A laugh.
Mr. .S. had seen Mr. Walker's name
announced for the Presidency. Now, an
uncharitable observer might perhaps any
that Mr. "Walker was looking to be the
"poor manV candidate. If so, he pro
posed a wise plan, for his system would i
toon make all the people poor, and then
lie would go in by acclamation. Much
. I lie Secretary s system might not m-
be termed a plan to manufacture
'poor men. Such would be its prcati
cal res lilt, and there Mould be no escaping
it. Lei the the gentleman from Alabama
("Mr. Payne) examine the report as long
sa he pleased, and see if he could make
any ihiag else out of it. And now Mr.
S. M ould ask the members of this com
mittee and Siis countrymen generally
whether the adaption of such a plan
would not he equivalent to passing a law
that henct forth no further capital should
lc invested in manufactures? It was in
the natnre of a cotiec heibcehand, and it
ran in tin's wise: "Gentlemen, you may
Invest your money in such way as you
deem best, hot we here notify you that, as
soon as yoa shall have supplied the Amer
ican market, and we find that in canse
ejeence of v'gut success imports begin to
diminish, the duties must be reduced, and
foreign goods must be let in until we grt
Tevcnue enough to pay all Government
officers." With such a noilce before
.him, Mho would engage "in manufactures?
W.he wovld invest the capital he had re
ceived by inheritance r accumulated by
his own enterprise and toil, with the cer
tainty before hi? eyes lhaijusl as soon as
lie began to gather a little strength, to ac
quire greater jkill to improve the modes
o( labor, ana to realize its reward by get
ting the belter of foreign competition, he '
must t knocked down, and the foreigner I
1st in toruiahixn? This might be called
iu certain ports of the country, "legging
for the British." Gentlemen from the'
"West understood what was meant by the 1
term Merging."- The doctrine was'thisi j
-we must have revenue; our salaries must
bfipvui,end Tevenu must be had; and
"yoalhe people must not manufacture, be-
causc, if you do, wc shall not gel as much
revenue. He put it to gentlemen to show
him w hether this would not be the plain
operation of the rule. r' '
But the Secretary of the Treasury had
made other very wonderful discoveries in
finance. What did he tell us? Experi
ence proves that, as a general rule, a du
ty of twenty per cent, ad valorem will
vield the largest ain't revenue' Ycs;cxpe
'rience proved that an ad valorem duty of
twenty per cent, would yield the greatest
amount of revenue. Twenty per cent,
vield the greatest of revenue! Why,
what was the great, broad, universally
known experience of the country? We
had a tariff of twenty per cent in 1811-'2
and what was our revenue? - Not one
half of what it is now. The whole a
mount of revenue from imports M as then
about thirteen millions, and this year it
was twenty-seven millions. Was thir
teen more than twenty-seven? If so, the
Secretary is right; if not he was wrong.
And what M as the effect of their twenty
per cent, horizontal duty? Under its op
eration the country was prostrated, the
Government itself M-as bankrupt, and the
people were little better. Yet this man
could say, in the face of these well-known
facts, and of the American people, any
one of whom knew better, that an aver
age duty of twenty per cent, yielded the
highest amount of revenue. The Secre
tary had even gone further yet than this;
in his famous circular he had assumed
that twelve ane a half per cent, horizon
tal was the true revenue standard. Some
Western scribbler asked him, through
the press, how much revenue 12y per
cent. M ould give on one hundred millions
ofjmports? (that being more than the
average amount.) The answer must be
twelve and a half millions; then deduct
three and a hajf millions, the expense of
collection, and but nine millions of nelt
rvenue Mould be left to pay twenty-six
millions of expenditures. To make up
the revenue, yon must add more than one
hundred millions to your imports, while
your whole specie has never been esti
mated at more than eighty-five millions;
then all your spheie goes for your first
year, and where will you get money for
the next year? These questions, being
rather troublesome, were never answer
ed. The trnth was, that the revenue result
ed from the tariff, and followed it. When
the tariff was low, the revenue was low;
when the tariff M as high, the revenue was
high. That had been the uniform expe
rience of the country, and he challenged
gentlemen to show the contrary. It
must be so;it could not be otherwise. And
why? Because the result of protcc tion
M as to make the people richmd taking off
protection made them poor. When the
people were rich the Treasury was full;as
the country became poor the Treasury
M-as impoverished. The condition of the
Treasury M as, in fact, a political ther
mometer, to test the prosperity of the
country. According to the national pros
perity, so would the revenue ever be
found. When men were impoverished,
could they purchase goods freely? Cer
tainly not. When prosperous, their
wives and daughters could purchase cost
ly clothing and rich furniture, and then
many goods were always imported. But
when the country M-as impoverished,
men Mould wear their old coats, then
wives and daughters stayed at home and
mended them, merchants could not get
money to import goods, and the Treasu
ry was impoverished.
Under the compromise law the duties
ran down till they reached the point
of twenty per cent.; then was the
gentleman's Uptopia; then, according
to the Secretary, the revenue ought
to liave been abundant; but who
has yet forgotten, or could ever forget,
M-hat had been then the condition of the
Treasury, and of this entire nation? The
Treasury was so perfectly bankrupt that
it could not borrow one hundred dollars.
The States were every where rcpudia-1
ting their debts, and the National charac
ter lay prostrate, and bleeding. That was
the condition, and every body knew it, to
which a twenty percent, tarifl'had brought
this land; and yet at this day the first
fiscal officer of the Government had the
front to recommend a return to that state
of things. In our great humiliation and
distress the tariff of '42 came in like a de
livering angel; it raised and restored the
revenue;it replenished a famihsed Treasu
ry; it brought repudiation into disrepute;
it made a bankrupt law useless; in a
word, it struck the whole country as with
the wand of an enchanter, and brought
back plenty, and credit, and enterprise,
and hope, and public character. Why
then distub it? What mischief had it
done? The Secretary deprecated agita
tion, but who agitated the country? It
was the Secretary himself and his friends.
The friends of protection every where
cried out, "give the country repose,"
Give the country prosperity and peace
