repeated favors conferred in furnishing .us
with the late daily of that city.
JWe hope he will repeat the &Vor often in
(future. .

A Protective tariff.
the rccedf financial crlsifc, which has
prostrated commerce add manufacture in
this country, has induced the thinking por
tion of the American people to consider the
cause. A very slight'examination will
bring thorn to the conclusion that it is in
-a great measure, if hot Entirely, attributa
ble to the limited Protection now afforded
-to American industry by onr government.
We have tried a Protective Tariff and
found it to result in the building np of
all the industrial interests of the country,
giving work to the laborer, establishing a
sound currency and creating general con
fidence in all departments of business. —
Wchave tried a Free Trade Tariff also,
add iho result has been the embarrassment
of cup country—banks breaking—mer
chants'breaking—furnaces Out of blast —
mines abandoned—railroads failing—rol
ling mills idle—silence among the spin
dles—workmen idle —ships rotting at the
wharves —debtors absconding—sheriff’s
hales—and a general despondency among
all classes. How different the Results ?
Can any one look upon thorn and not be
convinced that the present Tariff is detri
mental to the interests of our country?
Much' as the advocates of a Free Trade
Tariff would like td ignore the question,
it is daily becoming more and more appa
rent that Protection to American Indus
try, Will be one of the prominent issues in
the coming Fall elections, as well as in
the Presidential campaign of 1860, for
which the political parties are already ta-
king the initiatory steps. Indeed, from
present indications, this question will over
ride aU others, so far as Pennsylvania is
concerned. “Coming events cast their
shadows before.” * In every section of the
State we find the Opposition journals—
American and RcpflbGcan—unfurling the
Protective flag ; and. Opposition leaders,
fmd in many instances men who have
hitherto acted with the Democratic party,
planting themselves upon the Protective
platfotm. Aspirants for political promo
tion arc .also trimming their sails to catch
the popular breeze, and talk boldly and
enthusiastically for Protection. The mas-
ses of the people-farmers, mechanics and
wmkinjgmen—the rt bono and sinew of the
land” who do the voting, begin to feel the
absolute necessity of having their industry
labor encouraged and protected—and
from the centre to the circumference of
‘ our Commonwealth, there is a
fltern, determined jmrpoee manifested,by

Is .fawt wi^ v direct reference to this ques-
ponc bet open and avowed friends
ofProtcction to American Industry, will
receive their support or be elected to Con
gpeas.. Tbe Republicans of Allegheny
County, in their address to tbe people, re
ferring to this question of the Tariff, says,
trllibinuoh truth, that “ a serious matter
to the people; of this country is to be
found in the fact that while the revenue
of tfcc government has fallen off, owing to
the, revulsion which took place ill 1867,
<md distress has fallen upon the nation in
ionsequence of tbe prostration of all
branches of industry, the party in power
absolutely refuses to revise the tariff,.either
ftp increase the revenue or restore prosper-
ity to the people. It finds the govern
ment unable to get along without borrow
log, yet will not take any steps to increase
the revenue; it sees every branch of na
tional industry paralysed, yet refuses to*
remodel tito tariff, so as to afford, at pnoa,
protection to workingman and increase rev
enue to the government. In this emerg
ency it behooves the people to show then
selves equal to the crisis by demanding
such a revision of the tariff, as will afford
protection to American Industry, restore
activity! to our workshops sod furnish
employment to Ate suffering thousands to
whom a pitiless and unworthy govern*,
moot has turned a deaf ear. This .is a
great national question, andjone demand
ing the immediate attention of the peo
ple: and the only sure way of obtaining
the desired relief and accomplishing a re
turn to the Protective principle is to re
turn to Congress such men as will give
heed to the popular; cry and minister to the
public wants.”
Resignation op Ctbus W. Field,—
Wo understand that since Mr. Field has
sent in his resignation as active manager
of the Atlantic Telegraph Company, a
feeling of strong regret has been very gen
erally expressed among the stockholders
in this country, and many letters have
been addressed to him begging of him to
withdraw his letter. Btrt, owing partly to
his impaired health', add partly to the
pressure ofhis private business affairs, Mr.
F. has, we understand, felt himself com
pelled to persist in his course. *

A Sad AccidEstJ- — A very serious accident
happened at the Halting Mill yesterday morn
ing, which nearly proved fatal to a number of
persona. For somp time past workmen have
been engaged in putting up a brick cornice oh
the outside of the null/\nnd 'to enable them to
do so a scaffolding had been erected after the
usual plan. Soon after the workmen had com
menced their day’s jfobor on this scaffolding yes
terday morning-, a portion of it gave way, pre
cipitating those whq were on it to the ground a
distance of some twenty feet. Four men; named
John Sanderson, Jeremiah Mahoney, James
M’Keever and William Williams, were seriously
itgqred, while several others received painful
contusions but were able to go
about after tho Sanderson had both
legs broken, and was otherwise Seriously hurt.
Dr. Bramwell dressed his wounds,' and he is
doing as well *as could be expected. Mahoney
had a rib fractured, 7 one hand cru&ed, and was
considerably cut about the head and face. lie
bled profusely it the ears, nose and mouth, and
became delirious. The Dr. thinks he is injured
internally. Williams bad no bones broken, but
was much cut and bruised in the head and'face.
Dr. Teagley . ministered to their relief.
M’Keever had one; ankle joint dislocated hud
received other, injuries requiring the aid of a
physician. Dr. ; Hay attended him. Mis hot

■ln looking, over the! Blair County Whig, of s
ith© lith inst., I npticean article nnder the above
-naptioa, on the presentation of a gold watch and
ehain to Mr. Jonathan Rhule, the worthy Su
{pervisbr- of the Divisiori between flollidaysburg
sod Huntingdon, ‘ in which tho motives of the
*donoraarequestionedj In regard to which I
jritih tpmake * few remarks. -
A ssort time since, the men on Mr. Rhnle’s
Division held a consultation on the propriety of
presenting bun with a token of their respect,
and finally agreed upon a gold watch as the ar
ticle through which to convey it They presen
ted it {to him fearlessly, disregarding anything
that might be said disrespectful Cf it. This
privilege granted to allj American, eitixens of re*
warding a faithful benefactor or friend, ha|t ex
cited the ire and disturbed the .honesty of tho
editori of the Whig so much that be has stooped
low enough to chastise the poor laboring man
for exiercising his right as a freeman, and im
pugn bis motives. The money thus, spent was
,onr own-learned honorably —and in our humble
opiniqn it is dene of the Major’s, or any other
persons business, to what purpose wo appropri
ate it. We generally make use of it as best suits
our purpose.
But Mr. Whig, there appears to be a mighty
sight of difference between the laboring men on
the railroad rewarding their Supervisor, and the
directors of the Bank of Pennsylvania donating
to the President thereof all the silver that was
in its vaults, in the shape of a silver service,
for his services in mismanaging its affairs to the
loks of money to many. The times were hard
then, and they are equally hard now, but not
withstanding we see our friend Jonathan com
ing along regularly, qh the fifteenth of every
month, touting his tin box loaded with the “ ri
no,” redeeming all his promises to pay. This
we consider is very eminent service. But we
would ask the Major of the Whig if the poor la
boring men of the country have not as much
right to manifest their regards for a benefactor,
in their own simple way, as he has to boast
through his paper that A Vbwbinkle gave him
two tremendous tomatoes, some one gave' him
some fine corn for supper, or another gave him
a huge turkey for his 1 Christmas dinner. We
thihk we have and will use it as suits us best.
If we were as suspicious of the purity of other
men’s motives ns you ore, or at least appear to
be, of ours, Mr. Whig, we might justly say that
the above presents were either bestowed unwor
thily, or were unbecoming the conductor of an
American journal, or because of the poverty of
the recipient. Touching the charge that we get
very little more than will support our families,
let it bo said to the credit of the Company, that
whatever they promise to pay us, they pay reg
ularly in good money, and under the auspices
of the times we are content, knowing that upon
the return of prosperity to the country our wa
ges will be raised to their former standards We
therefore request yon, Mr. Whig, for the future
not to meddle with oar business unless you arc
interested personally, for whatever we have to
give we will give cheerfully, to those who are
worthy, regardless of anything you may dic
tate. A R. R. Man.

Has Ibk American Party of Blair
County been Sold Out!
Messes. Editors :—Tho above is the anxious
inquiry of the day. Rumor says that it is true.
Rumor tolls many queen stories, and among the
rest that a “satisfactory arrangement” has
been made between a prominent candidate for
Congressional honors and his friends of the first
part, and two of the American Conferees of the
second part—an araangement highly satisfactory
to all parties—and hehce arises tho momentous
question, “lias the American party of Blair
county been sold out?” “We pause for a re
ply.” In the mean time, let it be known to all
the parties to this contract, that this satisfactory
arrangement is fully understood, and that when
th,e proper time arrives it will be made public,
that the American party may know in whom
they have reposed their confidence. More anon.

The Folly or Duelling, —Punch says a wise
thing now and then. He has struck the sensible
view of dueling—its unfairness. Count the re
sult of hostile meeting certain, and it is murder;
countit hazzard, and the stakes ore unequal.
Quoth Punch; j ’
Now, in England wh have put an end to this
kind of thing. Without reference to tho bru
mal folly and wickedness of the duel, we have
put an end to it simply as rational beings who
can do a sum in. substiraction. We have—after
a good many years, y?e confess of Montague
House and Wormwood; Scrubbs—arrived at the
conclusions that duelling is unfair, because
men are unequal in value.
We now agree that in educated, intellectual,
working citizen, the mainstay of a loved family,
the adviser 1 of trusted friends, a useful recogni
sed man, with life assurances that would be
vitiated if he feU in wilful fray, is no match for
an empty headed younger son, with just brains
enough for drill, palf ale, and Skye terriers,
who has been put into! the army to be got rid
of, and who may ohahee to find room in his
narrow skull for an idea that he has been in
sulted. Arithmetic hjas settled the question,
and Cocker forbids his! pistol cocking.
We have got rid of the duel, because we can
deduct Enrigh Featherheaa from Mr. Golds
worthy, and note the difference. So, if the En
sign, in an accession of martial fire, were to
challenge Goldsworthyj be he the author,'lawyer,
doctor, merchant, or anybody else who used to
coine within the degree of consangoinity, (that
is, might be asked to shed blood with somebody
else,) Goldsworthy would select policeman as
his second, and the Xojrd Mayor as the umpire.
