Why do not Free Traders Make Iron?
We hiVe, for years, pressed this ques
tion-upon the public attention, insisting
that it deserved an answer. Here are
nearly gall the American people. who are
led to Believe that enormous profits are
daily realized by the' "American makers
of Irori,,espeeially of Pig Iron. But this
branch of industry is free and open to
all; and it is a simpler businesi to run
an iron -furnace than to wit* a farm.—
The raw materials-ore, Coal, Lime—
abound:on, every side,• and in almost
every State; they have little or tto, pecu
niary :value; and they are owned by
Free-liaders as well as by Protection
ists. a very simple matter to build
a furnace or stack; thousands stand
ready to do it promptly and well; or, if
you choose, there are lots of furnaces
now out , of blast that can be bought for
less that their cost. Suppose it to be
true that the duty on Pig Iron ($9 per
ton) effect, a bounty to the pro
ducer,-oabling him to sell his Iron for
nearly 9:f quite that amount over the cost
of prodlibing it, why don't tins Free Tra
ders ruA into the business, share the
profit, end ultimately reduce the price.?
What i4-the reason that Iron is •an ex
ception to the law of Supply and De
mand, which even Free Traders recog
nize atriiperative with regard to every
thing n.ei affected by the Tariff ?
We have at length driven one of them
to answer, thrugh The Evening Post,—
Here It1:-What he says, and all he says,en
the Main Question:.
' , The amount of capital which must be
investt?l in the production of iron is
enormous, if it is to be made profitable,
It should possess an iron and coal-re
gion, and erect works that would cost a
very in.47.ge sup of money. These who
have the disposition to 4L' 't;
capital from other profitable employment
have been often told by Proteetionists
that the business cannot be pursued
withonlpositive loss, unless enormously
protected . hyduties upon imports ofiron
that are 'gamest prohibitory; and that,
even witi2 Such Protection, the iron mas
ters cats' rely sustain themselves. We
do not believe this impression is correct.
There4e many facts which tend to throw
discrei*upon it; among which tho great
facilitWfor its production named in Mr.
GreeleY!s article, above quoted from, are
prominent. Yet, as their capital is all
profitity invested, and they hive meth
ods of.. producing iron by exchano a ing
American agricultural productions for it
in - for-sign lands; where 'cotton, rice,
beaf, pork, 'cheese,,,flour, and
'tither". 'Aln - prod u cc, are as , tutieh -wanted
as iron is wanted in this country, they
prefer to keep 'their capital employed as
'it is, rather than divert it to other uses,
the profit of which depends entirely upon
the patronage of Government. if they
should .be persuaded, " coaxed, jeered,
shamed or driven into making American
iron,' by so diverting. their capital from
its present proper, profitable and judi
cious uses; they feel no assurance that
the childish and iniquitous policy of the
Government, which, according to Mr.
Greeley, would have to be their sole de,
peudence, and which they deem unjust.
could be perpetuated. They would have
to become the advocates of a Protective sys
tem which they detested, and they have too
much confidence in the intelligence of
the American people to believe that they
will be - the dupes. and victims of such a
policy lcng enough to enable them to
make much profit out of the delusion."
Comments by the Tribune.
A. O. FURST
We defy any candid man to say that
the substance of the above is not exactly
this : The Free Traders do not believe
what their own oracles tell them with
regard to the profits of Iron-niaking,and
do believe the statements on this point
of the Protectionists. Read the above
extract once more, very carefully, and
see if it does not amount to just that.—
Free Traders own millions of acres of
Coal and Iron Ore; they would like to
make money out of them; yet they hold
off, and allow millions' worth of Pig
Iron to be imported annually. in addi
tion to all that is made in the country,
because they know that the Free Trade
clamor affirming the enormous profits of
making Pig Iron is a swindle; and they
prefer to be swindlers rather than
But they don't choose "fo divert their
" capital from other profitable employ
" ment.. Certainly not, unless into cne
more profitable; and this they do not be
lieve Ircm-making to be. Here is Mr.
A. T. Stewart, a zealous Free Trader,
who returns an income for 1868 of over
Three Millions of Dollars. This he in
vests mostly in city real estate, Hemp
stead plains, &c., as he has a perfect
right to do. He might have invested it
in Ore, Coal, &c., and run up a row of
furnaces with all the , latest improve- .
ments, from which- he could have turned
out two:or three hundred thousand tens
of Pig Iron per annum; but he chose to
invest his money very differently. Do
you suppose he would have done it if he
believed there was $lO per ton profit in
making Pig Iron? Do you believe he
couldn't have made that if any one
Here is Com. Vanderbilt who, every
year, requires for the railroads which'
he substantially controls several Mil
lions of dollars worth of Steel and Iron.
It has been practically settled by a gen
eration's experience in running European
railroads that each great Company sho'd
roll . its own rails, make its chairs, &0.,
not so much with an eye to profit as in
order to be sure of uniform excellence
in its material. A flaw often costs a
company half a million dollars; and it
can't afford to take any risk of flaws that
can be avoided. We hope to announce.

and concentrate its mterials over its
own lines cheaper than, any other iron
maker could. Rims a beady market and
assured pay for every pound of Iron it
can make. Yet, up to:this hour, so far
as we know, Com.yafiderbilt has • made
no Iron. Why "?,,Yo'liknow exactly why.
He believes he_dan:tise, his money to bet
ter advantage. • And what he don't know
b in the matter of money-malting, it isn't
worth while 'to undertake to tell him.
. . . . . . .
Whether we ough t erought not to make
Iron when it costs more (in &oilers) than
w e e could buy it for (in the absence of a
Tariff) abroad, is a question on which
we are not likely . soon to agree with the
Free Traders. They, think it a losing
business to make Pig Iron that costs
$4O per tun when we might,.by taking
off the duty, buy ;it` England a n t $3O to
$35 per tun. We, other hand, be-.
lieve it would cost its far more in our la
bor or its products than it now does,that
the fruit's, grain, meat, vegetables, but
ter, weed, &c., &c., that we now sell to
our Iron-means would not be worth
nearly what we now get for them if our
Iron-making were transferred to Europe.
That issue remains to be fought ; out; but
we submit that the Free Trade outcry
agaitist "monopoly," "exorbitant pro
"fits," &c., in iron-making, is an expos-.
ed fraud—an exploded delusion.

going,, to bed, as "a night-cap." One
night an unusual press of company pre
vented the bar-keeper from carrying up
Mr. Fletcher's usual night dram. The
'Squire didn't regard it as quite the
thing for him to go to the bar and get
his grog, and so he went to bed without .
his " night-cap." But to sleep, he could
not. All night long he tumbled about
for lack of his accustomed drink. And
as he did so, hi:s active and discriminl
ling mind worked most diligently. The
fruit of his reflections appeared next
morning, when, on getting up weary and
worn by his hard and restless night,
Mr. Fletcher went directly to the bar
keeper: "Mr. —, you didn't bring
up my_brandy 'and later last night, and
as a cbnsequence - I.; have:slept aittle- or
none all night."
The barkeeper was very sorry. This
neglect should not occur again. " Not
so," rejoined Mr. Fletcher, "never bring
me another drop of liquor unless I order
it. If it has come to this, that I can't
sleep without the help of a tumbler of
toddy, it is high time that I stopped
drinking, and brake up the dangerous

thorough-going temperance man,—Bos

Ax aged Boston lady, whose failing
sight rendered necessary a prayer book
of great size,recently called on her friends
on her way to church, and upon starting
again unwittingly picked up a small
music box instead of the prayer book.
During the sacred ceremony the old lady
attempted to open her prayer book,when
to her surprise and the astonishment of
the congregation, the roguish machine
struck up "Lannigin's Ball" with great
clearness and force.
OLD Bill W. was dying. He was an ig
norant man and a very wicked one. Dr. D.
an excellent physician and a very pious
man, was attending him. The old fellow
asked for bread. The Doctor approached
the bedside, and in a very solemn tone
remarked ; "My dear friend, a man can
not live from bread alone." "No," said
the old fellow slightly revived, "he's
'bleged to have a few vegetables." The
subject was dropped.
A gentleman once thus addressed a
letter to his bride:
"My dearest Maria." Thelady replied:
"My dear John, I beg that you will mend
