which might have been Induced by an expanded
state of the currency here. When priCes here rise
under the influence of an expate'deil paper curren-
cy, inducing inordinate importation, the operation
of the tariff, exacting cash dinies,,and accumulating
the coin in the Government vaults, would be aim,
ly to deplete the currency, reduce the prices and
diminish imports. The present state of the curren
cy in the United States is not inflated as compared
with those of the countries with which we deal.—
If the imports have been large it is because the ex
ports have also been large, and the payment must
be received by a gold producing and exporting
country in the shape of goods The rise in prices
which has actually taken place, it would seem, has
prevailed as well abroad as bete, growing out of
the general Mlle 3008 of a larger supply of precious
metals to the world's 'commerce. The large ex
ports outdo United States involved increased imports
at the higher price* which taxed ad valorem have
carried the federal revenues to an extraordinary high
level. The surplus has become inconveniently
large and requires remedy, that is to say, the rate
of tax should be reduced to correspond with the in
creased Lupines& The supposed relative rise in
the value cif silver to gold induced Congress to re
ducethe quantity of silver contained in the coin
The relative rise in the value of goods ought to be
met with a corresponding reduction in the rate of
tax; an average of 25 per cent. on the present value
of goods is a far more onerous than..4o per cetif. a
few years since. It is possible, however, that many
articles have not risen so much in yalue, and are
therefore relatively taxed less than other goods, and
this operates unequally upon the production of dif
ferent countries. The linens of Ireland, for instance,
bare risen to a less ratio than the silks of France;
hence the latter country is taxed On its products
more than Great Britain by the mere operation of
It is, we believe, very generally admitted that no
interests now in this country, requires that govern
ment to support it by bounties drawn Irom the con•
sumers; that is to say, all those persons who, by
the false' action of the Government, were induced
to invest capital in any branch of manufactures un
der the implied assurance that they shotild be sus
tained in a losing business, by Government inter
ferance in their behalf, are now in a condition to
help themselves, and do not desirethe Government
by its mischievous interference, to induce more
capital to compete with th6m as well as others. By
this repeated lolly of the Government the manufac
turing indarry of the United States has been retard
ed in its developement at least half a century.—
Struggling against this oppressive protection, the in
genuity and skill of the people have at least so far
developed manufacturing productions as to make
the competition of foreign articles less detrimental
to individual interests, than the enterprise of do
mestic capital, spirited on by the false action of the
Government to embark in the ruinous competition
With established concerns. It is, therefore, the
case, that raising the duties to a prohibitive. point,
in order to reduce the amount of revenue would
find very little favor from any class, and would be
most detrimental to the existing manufacturers.—
Some mode of proceeding in order to give greater
latitude to trade and less funds to the treasury,
seems imperative, and experience, both here and in
England; indicates that mode. When the " black
tariff" of 1828, by its oppressive action, drew the
country to the verge of civil war and developed
nullification, the compromise of in'erests was of
famed by Mr Clay and carried on. in the tariff of
1832-33 By those laws a very long list of articles
was declared free of duty and biennial reductions
made upon those still taxed, until in 1842 the whole
should reach a common level of 20 per cent.
The financial revolution which rolled over the
face of the civilized world so reduced the revenues
of the government that, in 1841, it was thought ad
visable to impose 20 per cent. duties upon alt the
articles that had been made free by the acts of
1832-33. The general level of taxes up on all the
other articles was raised by the tariff the following
year The present tariff of 1846 substituted ad ea
&rens for the spectfie taxes, but did not in effect re•
duce the duties. On the other hand, under int op.
oration the taxes are now higher than ever. The
obvious want now is to remove all the duties oil the
articles made free by the compromise of 1833, and
which were relaxed in 1841. The list comprises
the articles which do not come in competition with
American production, but which, as raw materials,
eater into American manufactures. The English
policy since 1842 has been identically with this.—
The number of articles which paid duty in 1842
was 1,097, and the revenue produced was/13,821,-
488. Danes amounted to /13 893,355 have since
been entirely removed on 631 artioles, and the re
maining 466 gave £22,312,513 in 1852. The et
lect of this large redoctien of duties was to stimu
late the exports of England's products, by enabling
them to be made at lower cost. The larger exports
required greater returns in the taxed articles sus
taining the revenue.. The compromise is as fol

The exports here are the " declared," or the true

nearly in value, while the imports have increased
60 per cent. in quantity. The true valuation of
these articles would show a rise probably equel to
that of the aggregate exports. It f dlours that the

ground for believing that in some articles we at least

beyond a mere personal to a general interest, as
ample as the bounds of our county; and an enter

to be personally beneficial. It is to be hoped, then,
that those having articles of superior growth or qual

THE TEMPERANCE MOVEMENT.
The Temperance Conventiam—clits Candi
• dates-cand Its Castroism.
The proceedings which we have already publish
ed have notified our readers that a new element is
to enter into the canvass this fall—or at least that
element has assumed a new and somewhat •tugs.
lar form. We allude, of course, to the Temperance
movement, which now has its candidate* for the
Legislature in the field, for whom the friends of •
prohibitory liquor law ar• asked to cast their votes.
Thai the course adopted in this County, is ill-ad via.
ed, uncalled for, and that the intentions of the hon.
est and conscientious Temperance men have Weil
made to answer the ends of Vl'higgery—it is our
purpose to show.
Let us remark, en rascal, that nontcan have a
higher estimate of those endeavors which are di
rected to the amelioration of the evils of intemper
ance, which seek to lessen the burdens brought up
on society by the traffic in intoxicating drinks, and
which would assuage somewhat of the misery and
poverty which are its concomitant evils, than our
selves. To forward the exertions of the philanthro
pic and benevolent individuals who are giving op
their time and talents to this great work, shall al
ways be oar pleasure, as we will ever be ready to
uphold the banner of Temperance We say this
much, (if so much is necessary,) that what we shall
remark herreaher may not make us obnoxious to the
charge cil hostility to the cause of Temperance.
There are many sound reasons why the Temper
ance cause should be kept distinct and nee from
the political parties and movements of the day. In
our judgment its Iriends never committed a greater
mistake, than when'they brought into the arena of
politics that question, which is properly auxiliary
to the cause of Truth and Religion, which should
be emblazoned on the banner of the Gospel, and
which is attainted and contaminated when ex
posed to the petty squabbles and contentions of pia.
lineal warfare. It is not, not can it ever be, legiti
mately and properly a party question—it can never
serve as the rallying cry for • party, and the only
easel of its introduction into politics will be, that
the party who can make most from it, will be loud
est in their professions of friendship, and the first
to repudiate it, when it best suits their interests. In
the end the Temperance cause will be immeasura
bly the sollerer—losing its identity, and retrogading
as it is used for selfish, dishonest and interested
purposes. While we are arrayed under the Tem
penance banner, and have a voice to cry aloud, we
shall protest against the delusion or Jeceit which
seeks to attach it to this party or that party.
Perhaps the best evidence of . the truths we are
endeavoring to display, is found in the action of
those who have set themselves op as the exclusive
friends oltemperance in this County. A slight ex
amination will show how successful have been the
tricks of politicians, and how the true friends of
Temperance have been betrayed into a movement
which will do infinite damage to the cause they
have at heart On the 27th of August, we publish.
ed a call signed by some twenty names, for a Con
vention of the freemen of Bradford County, in favor
of i law prohibiting the manufacture and sale of
spirituous liquors, to be held at the Cant House,on
Monday evening, September stb, "for the putpase
of taking suck measures as shall seem bat calculated to
save the desired legislation."
In this call no indication is given that nominations
are to be made for Representative, and the Con
vention met, as Temperance meetings are usually
assembled, composed of numbers of the friends of
the good cause, but few towns being regularly rep
resented by delegates. A motion was made to no.
minate candidates for Representatives, which was
adopted, and Zesurni Fiume, of Orwell, and .1
V DANIELS, of Burlington, were selected We ven

The Priem:air of these Delegaies at both Comma
lions is something laa should be glad to have ex
plained. It is not customary to place upon a De
legate the onerous duty of attending fun conven
lions—and these gentlemen have now the difficult
task of supporting three candidates for Representa
tive; all of their own selection, or to stand convic
ted of juggling and duplicity. We also wen that
the prominent.MOM in the Temperance COMOD
lion, were also the busiest in the Whig Convention,
endeavoring- to effect the nomination of Mr. Fats
' The Whig Convention, as might be expected af.
ter this exposure, at once selected Mr. Fats= as
the can idate of the Whig party, and the plot is
lolly carried out. We know there are many hon
est democrats who are sincere in their intention to
support the men whose election they deem best
calculated to advance the cause of Temperance.—
We know they are not disposed by their action to
er.courage double dealing, and we appeal to them
inhey can conscientiously lend their aid to a plan
the dishonesty of which is so apparent! We mitt.
take their intelligence, and place a false estimve
upon their integrity, if they do not signally rebuke
this unwarranted attempt to lake advantage of their
devotion to the Temperance cause, fur the purpose
of propping up the tailing fortunes of Whiggery.
If Temperance men deem it their duty to place
in nomination candidates to be supported solely up.
on that ground, we have no quarrel with them. It
is a matter of judgment—a question expediency
If they keep aloof from the political divisions of
the County, guiding themselves by this single ob
ject, we at feast shall give them credit for sincerity,
however much we may differ as to the etilny of
the movement. tt , is a great mistake to suppose
that the question of a prohibitory liquor law, as im.
pon.rit as it is, can override and merge the politi
cal issues of the day Experience has proven the
contrary, and evidenced that all moral questions,
relating to the social condition of the country, lose
by contact with political parties
If, however, the Temperance men of this County,
deem it would advance their cause to nominate
candidates for Representatives, as ill.advised as we
should consider it, they still bad a perfect right to
do so. But they should have taken care not to play
into the hands of either party, as thereby the morale
—(the only effect such a course could have) of the
movement is entirely destroyed and men come to
look with suspicion upon the cause, and to douta
the sincerity and disinterestedness of its movers
That Zeman' Femur. was to be the candidate
of the Whig party, was as well known on Monday
as it was on Wednesday evening, and ii was the
duty of the Temperance Convention to have refused
to nominate him, notwithstanding the efforts of the
Whig delegates, who were attending and voting
two days in advance of their regular time.
We cannot but Consider, that this movement is
ill-timed and onealled for. What good is to be el
fecaed for the cause of Temperance t And why the

candidates selected by the Democracy, represented

is before their constituency. Has it in any manner
been assailed! Is there any reason to believe that

as in that of any of the candidates named
Theis can be no arguments urged against the re
election of Messrs PAININoRC and BARTON. They
have already proved themfelves faithful and hon

before the people—let them be scrminized--and
upon those votes, as representing the wishes and
interests of their constituency, let them stand or
We appeal to every Temperance man, who is a
believer in the principles of Democracy, to pause
and reflect before he caste his vote for the nominee
of a Whig Convention. Let him carefully consider
if he will thereby advance in the slightest degree
the great reform for which he is laboring. Has he
any more reason to trust ibis cause in the hands of
ZEIIIIILON Faints, than he has with Messrs BARTON
and Pssamoae, whose Legislative course is the best
evidence of their sincerity. Mr. Farms has the
reputation ol being an upright, honest and intelligent
citizen, but we are not aware that he has ever in
any way been particularly prominent in advocating
or encouraging the Temperance cause, that he
should now be selected as its champion. Mr. DAN
me, is a Democrat, likewise of good teputation,
and placed in nomination only to complete the tick
et, for he will not be voted for by an) number of
Temperance Whigs, whose desires would be en
tirely gratified by the election of Mr. Faints.
By this amalgamation and manceuvreing, all the
moral influence of a vote for Temperance candi
dates is entirely lost—Temperance Democrats are
lett without a single reason for supporting the tick
et—and Temperance Whigs, as partisans, have
everything to gain. They ask Democrats to help
elect a Whig Representative, while in torn they
will not even cast their votes for a Democrat,
who has been nominated upon the same issue, and
give him the comfort of a respeCtable vote ! We
ask our Democratic friends to observe if such is not
the course of the Whigs in every township : they are
anxious that FRISEIZ should be well supported. (be.
cause they hope to elect him)—but they refuse to
vote for DANIELS. for the reason that there is 'no
prospect of his success ! By such management, no
demonstration can be made at the polls, of the
strength of Temperance principles, and the goes-
lion narrows itself at once to a mere choice between
men. The Democratic party are not afraid to trust
:hie, with all other questions which may arise, to
Messrs. Bt artal and Passmoss, and all attempts to
draw off ibeir votes by raising the question *from
penman, is too shallow and flimsy a subterfuge to

The first annual Calle Show and Fair of the
Bradford County Agricultural Society will take place
on Thursday and Friday of next week. The Plow
ing Match will come off on Friday.
We are gratified to observe, by the indications,
that the farmers of Bradford are fully awake to the
advantages resulting from such exhibitions, and
that the display though dot what may be expected
