On the 6th of March, Ix7B, the late

In I HtV t the burdens of national tux a
tion were light. All our revenues, in

000,000, and our whole public debt but
(65,000,000. In the year 1860 the ton
nags of our ships upon the seas was
5,353,868 t'ins, which wits more by 140,-
POO tons than in any other year of our
history before or since. Two thirdi of

of (400,000,000, which was #13,500,000
more than during any previous year
' >tir import were(.'lo2,ooo,ooo decidedly
more than any other year. And I make
this statement on the authority of Da
vid A. Wells, that in 1860 we were ex
porting to foreign countries more
American manufactures than in any
other year of our history. In a table
printed on page 1(1 of the rejiort of the
special commission! r of the revenue for
1860, it* up pears that in 1860 there came
to this country 179,000 emigrants,

As an exhibit of the activity and in
lustry of our people, forty eight hun

at the patent ofliee in iB6O, eleven
humlred more than the average number
, for the three years preeeding. In that
' yeie we built 1.846 miles of railroad.
The people of the I'nited States con
sumed 332,000 tons of sugar in 1871 and j
in iB6O they ronutned the enormous
amount 46*4,000 tons: more than ire any
othor year of our previous history. The !
. mean annual consumption of tea in the j
, I'niteil States, which was 16,000.000
pounds in the decade ending with IXSO
was 27,000.000 in the decade ending
with 1860. This is certainly an indica
tion that the jaoplc hud something to

(553,000,000; in 1860 to (1.009,000.000,
an increase of 90 per cent., while the

He spoke of the iron interest in that
year. lart mo toll him what the iron
and steel aaaociationa say in theit report

there were brought from lake Superior
to our mill* in the east 116,000 ton* of
ore, 51,000 ton* more than in any other
year of our history.
On page 47 of the same report I learn
that the production of anthracite coal in
Pennsylvania in 1860 amounted to 9,'
807,000 tons, almost 800,000 ton* more
than in any previous year.
On page 12 of the same report I find
that the production of bituminous ooal
and coke for 1860 amounted to 122,000
tons, which waa 38,000 tons more than
the greatest product of any preceding
year. And how much pig iron did wa
produce in that year? I quote from
page .102 of the volume, "speeches and
addrsaea" by William P. Kelley—a
speech made by him here, January 11,
1870, in which he gives the products
for seven or eight years; and according
to his spech in 1860 the total product
of pig iron in this country was 913,000 !

This is an old debate between the
gentleman from Pennsylvania and my
self ; a debate that we had eight years
ago, when to justify his extreme views
on the tariir (which 1 do not hesitate to
say have done the cause of real protec

the extreme free traders), it waa nece*
aarv for hi* argument to make it appear
that because we then had alow tariff
1860 was a year of distress.
a rKkiisirs POSITION.
We can find ample gyound for the
sufficient protection of American inanu
facturers without distorting the history
of our country. The gentleman's posi
tion lays him ojwn to this dnugerou*
reply that if the low tariff and insuffi
cient volumeo 1 " currency of 1860 caused
the alleged distress of that year,
how will he account for what he admit*
the great distress of 1877, with a much
higher tariff and three time* the cur

The fact is the decade from 1850 to
1860 was one of peace and general pros

More Podta.l Reform.
Representative Hingham ha* intn.
| duced a bill making letter postage two
centsan ounce, instead ofhalfan ounce,
a* at preaent. There is no question but
that the ounce is a much better stan
•lard for letter weight than the half
I ounce. A very large proportion of
letter* vary *o slightly from the half
ounce weight that a reasonable doubt
usuallv exists whether a single or double
stamp is required. Letter scale* are
not a convenience which every person
ha* at his or her elbow, and to teat the
matter at the post office involve* con
siderable trouble. To adopt the ounce
• tandard for singl" letter* will not un
pair the postal revenue* greatly, while
Jit will save people much bother and
1 vexation.
A similar charge i* m ej. 1 in regard
to newspaper postage. The rate should
be one cent for three ounce*, instead of
two ounce*. A seven oJumti paper.

than two ounces. Most people think

Fleeing From Marriage.
William 11. Reed, recently of Frank
in township. Hunlingtori county, has
fled to avoid marriage wiih Miss Kllen
Kinch. The day for the nuptials had
been fixed, and the proa|Krtive bride
had made extensive preparations for
housekeeping, which duty she expected
to enter upon immediately after the
wedding. Heel, instead of keeping his
engagement, wont on the appointed day
to the nearest rail road station and took
the car* for the West, as is supposed,
since which time he has been unheard
of, so far as is known in this county.
He left behind him, however. a vain
able limestone farm, out of which Miss
Kinch hope* to secure satisfaction for
her disappointment snd injury. She ha*
brought an action for breach of promise,
and, upon a writ of foreign attachment,
has had the farm levied upon. The
amount of her damage* is yet to he leg
ally ascertained, hut when the matter
has been abdicated she will have ample
security by virtue of her attachment
for (10,000 at least. Reed is doobiles*
ignorant of the proceedings against him
and when he learns of them will lie under
•trong inducements to come beck and
make a defense.
