A Rare Chance to Secure the Leading
Literature of the Day !
Every head of a family, in the country, should
subscribe and pay for his county paper. He
that attempts to raise a family without giving
it the advantage of a newspaper, in this en
lightened and christian age, is criminal y neg
ligent. We think that every man, without
exception, raising a family, should spend from
MN dollars to TWENTY-FIVE dollars a year,
according to his means, for this kind of edu
cation, and we hope to live to see the day
when there will not be an exception to this
rule in Huntingdon county.
We want every body in the county to sake
the JocatreL, we don't care what party you
belong to—Republican, Democrat or Temper
ance man. If you are a Republican, we are
with you heart and soul; if a Democrat, you
ought to know what we have to say about
you, no that you can act and vote intelligently,
and if you are a temperance man, we assure
you that no one will administer severer blows
upon the whiskey business than the JocasaL
will, and if the whiskey men don't like it, why
let them do as they do with whiskey that is
distasteful, take the less of it. We believe
newspapers, like preachers and school teach-
ars, should be on the side of moralityand good
""-order. But the Jounxat. will uphold only that
which we, in our humble judgment, think to
be right, regardless of consequences.
The development of the county, in every re
spect, will be its constant and undeviating aim,
Aug in this respect it will be to every ma 'a
interest to subscribe for it. We want to build
up Manufactures, Mechanics and the Arts on
every hand, and by subscribing for the Joon-
NAL you assist and encourage us in our design.
T:ie next year will be an eventful one;
President, Vico President, Governor and Con
gress arc to be elected and a Constitutional Con
vention will be selected to remodel tho Con
stitution of the State. We have outgrown the
old one, and if you want to keep posted you
must have the papers. Take the JOURNAL first,
and if you won't take it, in the name of intel
ligence, take some other one, but don't be
without the news.
For the purpose of distributing good Litera
ture, in connection with the JounsaL, which
we think good enough of itself, we have ar
ranged to furnish the folloring-natued leading
periodicals, jointly for the remarkably low
price stated below:

If any young lady or gentleman will

to make the person doing so a present of

The third annual message of President
Grant, which we to-day lay before our
readers, may be regarded as a model State
paper, and is favorably received by the
press of the country. It deserves, and
will well'repay a careful perusal at the
hands of every citizen of the Common
wealth, containing as it does, the most
flattering exhibiti ,, n of the condition of the
For his bold and decided stand on the
question of Protection, the President is
entitled to the thanks of every Pennsylva
nian, while his recommendation for a re
adjustment of the Tariff, so as not to dis
turb home protection or reduce the wages
of the American lab,,rer, commends itself
to the kindly remembrance of the tailing
millions of the land.
Every - law-abiding citizen must admire
his platform of the enforcement of the laws,
regardless of local custom. passion or pride.
His already well known policy of re
treachment and economy is forcibly reiter
ated. The national debt has been reduced
during the year = i[ , lity-six millions and by
this reduction of price p tl and the refund•
ing of a portion of the loan the annual
interest account has been lessened nearly
seventeen millions.
His recommendation of the ab,dition of
internal revenue tases, at once dispenses
with the whole system, together w:th all
its cumbrous and expen-ive machinery.—
In short the entire document is one of
which the country may well be proud.—
Another term of Republican rule, with
such a leader as Grant, and the entire
legacy of•national debt, bequeathed by the
Democratic party, would be wiped out.

The Revenue Reformers and Free Tra
ders have, for some time past, kept up an
incessant cry against the duty on salt.—
When, in 1861, the duty Was raised from
6 cents per bushel to 24 cents per 100
pounds, or abdut 14 cents per bushel, there
were only 12,000,000 bushels produced
per annum in the United States, and 25,-
000,000 bushels supplied from abroad.—
Under the new tariff these proportions
have been reversed. The home product is
now 25,0 0,000 bushels per annum, and
the quant ty imported during the last fis
cal year 13,340,259 bushels. This result
comes from protection, and affords a signi
ficant illustration of the beneficial effects
of that policy.
Now what is the extent of the burden
of the tax on salt, of which the app ments'
of protection so loudly complain ? It is a
fract:on over two-and a half cents per an
num, to each individual in the United
States. Belore the duty was raisad Eng
land supplied two-thirds of all the salt
consumed in the United States. Beyond
th ) Syracuse Salt Works there was but
ittle produced in this country. When
the duty was increased salt works b,gati
be established in other localities, and now
salt is made in large quantit:es in very
many of the States. We are at present
producing two-thirds of the entire con
Another fact of great importance in the
:argument that the tax is not a burthen is
th a: The price of salt is trit to-clay, in
gold, higher than it was in 1860. There
is great competition among American pro
ducers. The Syracuse and Saginaw salt
works are pitted against each other; and
these, with the less extensive, but expand
ing manufactories in Pennsylvania, Vir
ginia, and many of the other states, are
lab:piing to reduce the cost of production,
so as to compete successfully for the trade.
Another important achievement has been
made : When England supplied the great
er quantity. she controlled our markets and
established the prices. Now our own m to
ufactureis, by supplying two-thirds of the
whole consumption, are masters of the situ
ation, and are enabled to control the mar
kets and establish prices. England, there
fore, in order to reach the American
markets, is compelled to pay the cost of
getting there, including the duties, and is
obliged to sell at the prices established by
American manufacturers. The duty is no
longer paid by the, American consumer, but
by the foreign producer. It is not a tax
upon us, but upon the foreign shipper, who
pays it in order to secure the privilege of
selling Ws goods in the markets of toe
United States. In fact the cry against the
duty on salt, from which the Goverment
receives annually over a million of dollars,
comes from shippers and their
Commission Agents iu New York. Our
manufacturers are ruining their trade in
salt, and they feel it. 1 . 04 conies from

capital, while the ..heathen Chines" has
no representative in America to operate
in the interests of his country and against
the duty on tea.
We dannot produce tea, coffee, spices,
&c. , Therefore if we can reduce the tariff,
is it not beat to begin with these articles,
instead of salt, which, under the present
duty, we can and are producing in large
quantities. thus giving employment to our
own people, and retaining in the country
the money formerly sent abroad to pur
chase foreign salt?
ISince writing the above the annual Re
port of the Secretary of the Treasury, just
submitted to Congress, has come to hand.
Mr. Bontwell recommends a reduction if
one-half of the duty now imposed on salt.
Th's will increase the importation, and
keep the annual aggregate of receipts of
duties about the same as at. present; but it
will seriously paralyze and check the man
ufacture of that article iu this country.—
Under the present protective tariff new
salt works have been opened, and success
fully operated, in many parts of the coun
try. These new enterprises will suffer;
some of them will be closed up, and the
home supply will decrease, while importa
tions will increase. The reduction of duty,
if made, will be found to be premature.]

WASHINGTON, D. C., Dec. 8, 1871.
The President's annual Messa k e to Con
gress is brief, comprehensive, and practi
cal. In Washington, and among all shades
of politicians, it is spoken of in terms of
commendation. The only solitary objec
tion made to it is by the Daily Patriot,
(Democratic), and the fault at tted is that
"the message is too sh , .rt." The Patriot
probably longs for the good old days of
Democratic Presidents, when Innmil mes
sages filled ten or fifteen columns of a news
paper in small type. As your readers will
pram to examine the full text of the mes
sage, I will not undertake to epitomize its
important contents, It slionld be carefully
examined by every reader, as it treats of
questions in which every citizen is more or
less interested. It also indicates a degree
of national prosperity never beti,re reached
in this country ; a condition of peace and
amity with all other nations, and gives
reasonable evideLe.: of years of national
prosperity in the future.
I notice that the message is praised xnl
our country congratulated by The Tines
and other London pipers.
The work of the session has been cons
moored in good earnest. The Committees
of the Douse have been re-organized, and
the new appointments and .changes give
satisfaction generally. Dawes of MaPea
eliusetts is chairman of the House QM
wittee of Weya and Means, one of the
most important, as it prepares the ehangus
and naJdifications proposed in the tariff,
There is g od reason to b , Ife%e that no
radical chmges are contemplated; and it
is more than probable that the committee
agree pretty generally with Mr. Boutwell
in the stiggestions on the tariff made in
his Annual Reprt, now submitted to Con
While there are no great leading ques
tions demanding the prolonged attention
of Congress, there are a large number of sub
jects requiring legislative consideration
and action The general sentiment among
members is to give close attention to busi
ness, and if possible get through with the
work of the session some time in April.
Secretary Boutwell's Report is a most
gratifying state paper. Its figures show
that the revenues are more than ample, and
may be reduced some forty million dollars
annually, and still leave a surplus of' about
fi.ty million dollars, to be applied each year
in reducing the public debt, by cancelng
outstanding bonds.
Mr. Boutwell suggests that the duty on
coal be reduced to 50 cents per ton, in jus
tice to the New England States, where
there is no coal produced and a very large
amount consumed. He also suggests that
the duty on salt be reduced about one half.
This will not seriously effect the extensive
Salt Works at Saignaw, for they have the
cost of transportation front the sea board
to the west. in their favor, affording on that
bulky article a large item of protection in
itself. Saginaw salt will be in great de
mand in the west, even with the duty on
foreign atilt all removed. So too the Syra•
cuse Sate Works, during the last decade,
have grown to enormous proportions, and
can stand a reduction of the duties, though
that will seriously reduce their supplies to
New York and other sea board cities. It
is the comparatively new and weak manu
factories springing up all over the country,
under the present protective tariff, that
will suffer. Many of them will probably
be compelled to close up. The true policy
in rt.ferenee to the duty on this industry
would be for C ingress to continue the duty
as at present until the home supply comes
up so as to equal the demand of the coun
try, which would be in about three years,
judging from the annual increase of the
last few years. Then the duty could with
safety be reduced about one half. This
would prevent prohibition, which is not
wanted, and afford healthy competition be
tween the domestic and the foreign articles,
both of which would continue to be fur
nished at the lowest possible prices.
Mr. Boutwell also recommends that a
portion of the duty on bides be removed,
and that certain articles of raw materials
and drugs be transferred to the free list.
His policy is decidedly protective, but as
there is room for a reduction of the reve
nues, he names those articles as least cal
culated, in a reduction of duties. to affect
unfavorably the manufacturing interest and
general industries of the country.
