The Tariff and the Monopolists.
Should the proposed tariff bill ho
como a law, the groans of the people
will speedily bo turned into impreca
tions. They have endured taxation
for tho purposo of sustaining tho cred
it of the government without a mur
mur, und will endure whatever burden
the national faith and the national
honor may require. From, being the
most lightly taxed people upon the
earth, we are fast becoming thomost
heavily taxed. Tho revenuo of tho
United 'ata3 is not exceeded by the
revenue of any other people, and is
already larger than tho burdens of the
public debtand the ncccssarj-demands
upon the public treasury require. Tho
income from tho internal revenue for
the year ending 30th June was S315,
000,000, and that from customs $170,
000,000 in gold, reducing this last
to paper, at tho premium of only CO
per cent., wc have a gross income for
the fiscal year of 8MG,000,000. But
there are other receipts from lands
and miscellaneous sources which cany
the gross amount to over five hundred
and fifty millions. Now, in tho face
of these enormous returns, the Amer
ican people are called upon by the
advocates of tho proposed tariff to
increase the present scale of duties
upon every articlo which comes in
competition with American manufac
tures. For what purposo f Not to
pay the debt. Tho present revenue
provides amply for that, but to swell
the profits of the manufacturing inter
ests. There is a great clamor among
tho immediately interested for thej
protection of domestic industry, and
to prevent our manufactures from be
ing destroyed by tho competition of
foreign productions. But t ho simplo
minded farmer of Maryland or of the
Wet will not comprehend tho neces
sity for further protection at his ex
penso of manufacturing enterprise and
capital, much of which within the past
year have declared dividends of fifty
and one hundred per cent. Let us
tako one item, which will servo ns a
samplo of the insatiable appetito for
protection which has prepared the
dish of oppression of w hich wo are
As stated by Mr. "Raymond, of New
York, tho duty on railroad iron was
raised last your from $12 40 to 515 75
per ton in gold. Thero was last year
an internal revenue duty that has been
taken off for tho benefit of the manu
facturer, and yet tho pending turiff
bill proposes to raise tho duty on im
ported railroad iron to $22 50, which,
added to tho freight and insurance,
all of which are to bo paid in gold,
makes tho proposed tax on railroad
iron $48 a ton in currency over and
abovo its cost abroad. There aro two
railroads mentioned by Mr. Kaymond
the New York Central and the Eric
railroads each of which consume
about 20,000 tons of railroad iron an
nually. At the proposed rato of duty,
the roads together, will pay nearly
two millions cf dollars for tho sako of
protecting this one manufacturer.
These rouds, with tho Baltimore, and
Ohio and tho other mads of tho coun
try, aro to transport tho product) of
tho farmer, and thus tho cileot comes
homo directly in increased charges to
the producer. Other articles of hard
ware, cutlery, clothing, carpets, from
tho ladies' needles to trie blacksmith's
elcdgo, from tho coarsest blankots to
jtha finest Wilton carpet, must pay
tho fame tnbuto not merely lor pro
tection but for tho overwhelming ag
grandizement of manufacturers, who
are already enjoying privileges and
advantages for wealth beyond any
other interest in tho country. As if
the duties wo now pay wcro not
enough; as if tho difference between
tho price of gold and paper, (all duties
being payable in gold,) now at 54 per
cent., were not enough ; as if the enor
mous prices at which tho American
citizen now has to purchase every
articlo, whether of luxury or necessity
winch lie consumes, did not entitle
him to some consideration at the hands
of Congress, as well as tho manufac
turer who revels in overgrown wealth ;
as if the present convulsions of Eu
rope, which will roiao to tho wnr stand
ard the price of every commodity we
import, (probably adding from twen
ty to fifty per cent, to the prices ot
all commodities ) were not a circum
stance to bo taken into account in
mitigation of the burdens which the
laborers and mechanics and farmers
who consume manufactured goods
have to beai .
What will the great aricultural
States of tho Webt say to his most
flagitious attempt togrindthem down
for the 6ake of the manufacturing dis
tricts of a section ? Will they look
around in this emergency for their
natural allies, the representatives of
the bouthern blatee, in this fierce war
which (sectional interests is making
against tho general prosperity of the
land ? Will they consent to be made
much longer the tools of interested
combinations; first, in excluding the
representatives who have tho same
stakes with themselves, and then be
sectionized under the false pretense of
protecting American industry? tve
have spoken of the large revenue, al
ready 6uperabundent,w hich the treas
nry derives under the present revenue
tarifflaws, and this, it will bo remem
bered, is almost entirely exclusive of
the eleven bouthern States which have
been too much exhausted by, the war
to consume merchandise or to contri
bute to the revenue of the country.
One crop will put them in a different
situation, and, it is fair to assume, in
another year, under proper treatment
and legislation, they will swell the
revenuo by another liundred millions.
There is, then, no pretext of reason
for adding to tho tariff generally, but
rather is there reason to dminish the
existing rates. 'A tariff for revenue
which incidentally gives a fair chance,
whero needed, to the starting of any
particular interest which ougnt to be
developed, is not tho thing objected
to; but it is tho constant effort to
double and treblo rates in behalf of
those things which have already be
come strong and profitable. But the
wily managers of this tariff move
ment know that this is their opportu
nity. Now or never, while tho South
ern representation is excluded, must
they press their scheme of plunder,
injurious to commerce, oppressive to
tho people, odious and unjust in every
sense. It is lamentable that they
should attempt such sec tional domina
tion ns to render it incumbent for
other sections to bo specially invoked,
even for the good of tho whole coun
try ; but let tho West and tho South
bo reunited on tho floors of Congress,
as tho hnvo been separated in interest
or inmost feeling, and tho reign of
class legislation, prescriptive, selfish
rule, with all its corruptions, win, it
is hoped, speedil- be terminated. As
to how this class legislation, leaving
out of view tho great interests ot the
masses of tho people, is accomplished,
a prominent journal at tho north, not
identified with party, illustrates as
Tho most curious feature in the
affair is that these important questions
appear to ho exclusively from the
point of view of class interest. When
tho internal revenue on tobacco is in
question, committees aro heard repre
senting tho tobacco-growers, tho cigar-makers,
and the tobacco venders ;
no one represents the smokers. When
tho tax and duty on iron aro on trial
gentlemen appear who represent tho
mining interests, others who repre
sent the importing interests, others
who represent tho rolling interest ;
nobody at all seems to represent con
sumers of iron. When tho tax or duty
on wool comes up delegations appear
before the commitleo to argue the
question from tho roint of view of
manufactures of woolen cloths, and
vet other delegation which represent
tin porters of foreign wt ol and wool
ens ; nobody seeks an audience on be
half of tho groat community which
wears woolen clothes. Every bolly, it
seems.has his fay beforo thccommitti e
and beforo Congress except tho pub
lio. Tho public has no delegates and
friends. When tho newspapers toll
us that a hard fight is being waged in
commltteo on tho wool duty, wo know
that the question at isstio is whether
wo tho poor,helpless public shall bo
mulcted by the wool-growers, or by
tho woolen inanufr.clurcr,or by tho
importers. It isnot a question wheh
or or no we ahull be mulcted, That
SERIES - VOL. VII. NO. 1.
is a foregono conclusion, and we are
used to it. So we care very little
which of the rival claimants for the
plunder, of which wo aro Bure to bereft,
wins tho day.
It is a nico question how long this
sort of thing will last, and how it will
end; but when election day comos
round, tho chances aro fair that wo
shall draw the attention of the regular
j nominee to the subject.
It is a striking fact that while tho
New England manufacturers ore

cd anything moro than a nominal duty
on soft coal, while it was claimed by
the Middle States and 'Western inter
est that $1 50 or ?1 25 per ton, at least,
was necessary to keep their mines in
operation; and finally the rate of
$1 50 proposed by Mr. Francis Thorn
as, of ild., was carried only by tho
casting vote of tho Speaker. Tho
character of coal in question being
needed in their manufactories, they
desired the foreign article to como
into them from tho near point of the
British provinces at a low rato. Bal
The Postal Monet-Order System.
The new law of Congress in relation
to the money-order system was put in
force last week, and all tho offices aro
now operating under its provisions.
The working of the S3'stem is changed
in several respects, and orders of $50
and under are now sold, while under
tho old system the maximum was $30.?
The fees for money orders haTO also
been changed, orders from $1 to 520
being now issued at ten cents, and over
S20 to $50, inclusive, ot twenty-five
cents. Under the old law, when it was
necessary for a duplicate to be issued,
an affidavit with stamp was first re
quired, for which the party had to pay,
as also a fee for the new certificate.
Under the new law, post-masters can
administer oaths freo of charge, and
the certificate is also furnished with
out cost the only expense to the par
ty being the five-cent revenue stamp.
Besides these changes, quite a number
of other objectionable features have
been removed. It ia vtated that on
the 2d of August thrco hundred addi
tional money order offices, mostly in
tho South and West, will bo put in
operation. Tho Bystcm is daily in
creasing in popularity.
TriK German Conscription. Thero
aro now in Germany, actually under
arms, more than ten hundred thousand
soldiers, and forced levies are being
made every day in tho Prussian States
and the States Prussia lately seized
upon. Luckless Hofstein, as a reward
for her German proclivities, which
prevented her from remaining quiet
under Denmark, is condemned to fur
nish, in throe weeks', time a contin
gent of forty thousand men. Saxony,
only invaded the other day, will bo
forced, should Austria not by that
time have gained some signal victory
in tho North, to contribute half as
many more within u specified time,
which is too short to enablo tho mili
tary contractors of King William's
army to clot ho the new regiments."
Orders have been given to press into
the service of Prussia the young men
of Hanover and tho two llesses.
TiFLF.ASE or Major Gke. The Con

Geo ivho, for the last four months, has
been on trial beforo tho court-martial
at Ealeigh, N. C, for alleged cruelty
to Union prisoners at Salisbury, was
last week released from arrest by ord
er of tho War Ihipnrtmcnt, the court
having acquitted him. Tho above
trial will cost tho povcrnment about
825,000. Major Geo was a resident of
Florida, and universally looked upon
as a Christian gentleman.
