_Tss Irish Cllirch bill, which passed
proudly and triumphantly through the
House of Commons, will be savagely as
sailed in the House of Lords, and in all
probability •refected. - There trouble
brewing in. England, if the voice of her
masses for reform be unheeded by the
arrogant and aristocratic Peers. The
disestablishment of the church is a pro
gressive step the people hive decided to
make, and the spirit of democracy aroused
cannot be set at rest by the illiberal policy
and conduct of a body already odious
and despised. Oat of the Irish Churel
question may arise larger trouble than
any now anticipate. The system has
long been a galling chain forced by des
potic rule on an oppressed race, and
never in the centuries through which
worn were the people indifferent to the
hardship Imposed. The time has been
reached for reform, and the people de
mand a hearing. Should their expects-
Ilona be not realized, revolution may fol
low, and out of it, who can tell what will
not come?
.. —.... _
A reporter for the New York Times has
had a long interview with the ei-lin:fister,
and narrates the conversation very filly.
Mr. Jonsson was communicative con
cerning his official career in 'England. Of
Senator Sinimani, he made this remark
able debleistion :
Mr. Sumner wrote to Ur. Bright on
the 19. h or 20th of last January that the
rotocol which I ent here would hae
been almost unanimously it
approved if it
had been received three weeks sooner.
The fact is. the incoming President did
not want the question settled during the
administration of. Andrew Johnson, and
the Republican party did not want it set
tled by me. They did not want the eclat
of having the most difficult question,
short, of the Auestion of &anal separa
tion, that has arisen between the two
countries, settled by a Democratic ad
mtnistration. That was the point of ots•
jection to my course and to my protocol.
Mr. Sumner said to my colleague, , Mr.
Vickers, that a month earlier .it would
• have been as welcome as c hampagne.'
Bright denounces Buninergs speech In
the strongest terms:-
In the following, he charges upon his
own government a •practical change of
front, the inferencea being that the new
Administration, looking about' for tena
ble ground on which '.to stead in'opposing
a ratification' of the protocol, was inclined
to find it an earlier claim suggested by
Mr. SEW BD in '661 but which had been
suffered to remain in abeyance. , Mr.
Jourison is reported, on this point, as fol
lows: • .. ..
"This question of , belligetency was
covered in my protocol, and ea much
reparation was •thereinade fur it as ever
the English Government will consent to
make. Why; Prance recognized the
Booth: Spain did it: Russia did it. Why
is England, alto be held accountable
for it? They wiU never tolerate the Idea.
By the way, how about the diplomat°
correspondence? Has it all been pub

protocol?after the treaty ,
was negotiated, on the 14th of January, {
I wrote s letter on the treatykgenerally„ ,
and on the 17th I sent , a long dispatch
vindicating and explaining it, which has
not yet, so far as I have eeen, been pub.',
fished. Mr. Seward wrote me at the
time that both he and Mr. Johnson were
satished with all that I had done, and
that the protocol was satisfactory. After
thee,reat was sent here, I, for the first
tim - saw, that the United States Gov.
einment was disposed to think that it had
claims of its own, distinct from the indi-
Vidnal elellne of Its citizens. This mada

I wet not - instructed ages arising under Os ptesent'a - bin for
thatfalleged: offence. ,-When I ilearned
the fresh demand of ,the 'United States,
'went to see Lord' Clarendon. I had a
conversation with him and expressed my
willingness to • sign' a Supplemental
Convention,- If the claims were pressed
by the tuited States, in which it was
agreed to aubmit the claims that either
Government might hive against the
other to arbitration. Clarendon did not
exactly reject my offer, but asked me if
I did it under special instructions. I
Said not under 'special instructions, but
'I thought my general instructions cover
ed it. Clarendon and I parted without
arriving at a satisfactory conclusion so
far as the point was concerned. I then
telegraphed to Secretary Fish that
could get claims that either Government
'may have upon the, other submitted in
the same way as the private, individual
Alabama claims, if instructed.' Will
you instruct ? ' Mr. Fish answered me
that Convention' was in the Senate,`and
he did not know. That would have let
Mr. Sumner's claim in, but now it will
not be considered in the shape Presented
because it is extravagant.
.'But ; suppose , it is insisted - upon."
'President Grant will not insist upon it,
lam confident. If he should do it, war
will be the result." •
During the greater part of the dark era
of the domination of slavery in the poll
tics of this country, the Southern States
adhered, through their representatives in
Congros and elsewhere, with increasing
tenacity, to the principles of Free Trade.
In this matter, the leading men of that
section were wiser than they thought.
They proceeded upon the assumption that
their people had a monopoly of cotton,
both as to quantity and quality, so abse
lute and enduring that it could not be
broken or evaded. In this they were mils
taken, as the developments of the last
eight years have abundantly demonstra
ted. Their wisdom was not here. It
consisted rather in unconsciously es
pousing a commercial and revenue
system in consonance, .with the
social and labor structure_ of their
society:. Slavery, in all' its essential
elements, was barbarism. •It was the
rule of the few, through superior Imowl
edge, over the many, who were neces
sarily held in such ignorance that it was
iiiiposeible for them to acquire familiarity
with the higher industries pertaining to
ripe civilization. Hence, only the more
primary, industries were congenial to
such a:condition of social organization,
and those existed only in their ruder
foods:: In this state of satire, Frei'
Trade was nntural, perhaps hevitable.
This adaptation of governmental meas
ures to social arrangements was undount
edly wise, though they' who who insisted
upon it were not aware of the real
sources of the , impulses by which they
were actuated. •
With the return of peace the Southern
people instinctively returned to their
former industries, mad to the production
of cotton, as the chiefest among *then.
They were at once confronted by several
facts of high significance. The first, that
during the rebellion special efforts had
been made to grow cotton in other coun
tries, and that a better and cheaper staple
had been produced in abundance. India,
Algiers, Amstralla and various other coun
tries have embarked in cotton cidture
with extraordinary emcees. Then, top,
the freemen will not , work at as low rates
as they were compelled to when held in
bondage, and that e*:ery step in their in
tellectual and moral elevation will cause
a still further relative increase lathe com
pensation they will demand and obtain.
Moreover, this question of wages is com
plicated with that of the Inflation of the
currency. In all the higher industries
wages have ruivarmed, and those engaged
in the ruder employments cannot get oust
all *Mout insisting on higher pay. As
the trades are now organized, it is difficult
to see.where this increase of wages will
ultimately end. Even; advance tri - the
departments of skilled labor compels an
advance in all other forms l of work; and
this action and reaction seems destined to
go ow until specie payments shall be
reached, when wages and commodities
will alike be measured by the natural and
intrinsic standard.
Meanwhile there are indications that
the Southern people will renounce their
devotion to Free Trade and lean, more or
less decidedly, to Protection irk one form
or another. The movements of Southern
Legislatures and commercial conventions
for national aid in restoring the levees
which were broken during the war, may
be resolved into this category,
b By the
reclamation of the Mississippi ottoms,
and the use of them in growingeotton,
it is believed that a yield will be secured
so much larger than is known elsewhere
sato more than Make up for the higher
cost of labor What Congress will do
with the applications which will be
pressed upon' it, cannot even be conjec
tured. With the restoration of the So
Stites to representation in the two
Houses, they will possums formidable de.
gree of power, and the urgency of the
case may enable them to supplement their
own force by accessions of strength from
the East and West. ,
This much is clear, that the Southern
States, having had a domestic system co
incident with the best modern civiliza
tion, incorp o rated th ereon without their
consent, and in virtue of the war power,
they will, of necessity, he constridnei to
support a governmental policy which
shall give the amplest measure of-vigor to
that system. If they had been free to
choose, they would Italie blindly rejectcd
that system, but as they can do nothing

of which, for many , years, it has eneotm
tered only the fiercest opposition.
Nor is this all. l likilled worimen, par
ticularly, comprehend that the present
scales of wages in this country, or scales
in any reasonable degree proportionate
thereto, can only be maintained by a-gov
ernmental breakwater against competi
tion from without. Free Trade in the
products of any or all the regular and
common branches' of industry,
that, making allowance for thedifferences
in freight and exchange, the remuneration
Of labor shall be reduced to substantially
the same level in all countries„ and this
not by the proCess of incre asing where
compensations are lowest, but by lestice
ing where they are highest. . This cannot
be otherwise. If the produceis in the
same line, should be situated on "opposite
sides of a rivet' or street, and one should
have the advantage of cheaper Cipital and
labor, all-other conditions being equal, it
would folio* necessarily thatithe opera
tor having this advantage woe d drive his
competitor into bankruptcy, or else force
kis workmen to accept wages so far re
duced as to make up the discrepancy.
Nor would it make any odds if these two
competitors should be located on oppo
site side of a continent or ocean',
This tendency `of Free Trade to sup
press particular industries: in the less
populous and opulent communities is de
serving of special consideration. In what
does civilizstion consist? o i n the mate
rial side it certainly consists ! in a knowl
edge of the higher industries! Other
conditions being the sane between sev
eral nations, that one •has the highest
civilization in which ,the )inost arts are
understood and , prosecuted to the greatest
perfection. In exact ratio as one art is
broken down and practically lost, from
any cause whatever,- In a nation, is its
civilization impaired. Tisl3 is why Free
Trade tends necessarily to barbarism.: It
is time to talk of resorting to more primi
tive employments when theniore scientific
recondite fall; but it is not so nay to
do, nor so profitable either l to the indivi
duals direelly concerned or to the nation
itself. '
Whet industrial art hs
the United
States which it can afford to spare ? If it
has one, we do not know , how to describe
it. To our apprehension it seems much
wiser, instead of letting go ,any knowl
edge we have; to concentrate here
all the industries Alult exist else
where in mederate climates. We have
all needful natural resources. Oar phys
ical and political circumstances invite to
augmented population, to be drawn from
both Europe and Asia, bringing the in
dustries of those countries, and thus en
riching the civilization existing here.
The prudence of this4ourseis so•obvious
that the republic will be slow to reject it.

The Coinnutrcial, in alluding to an
aquatic blunder in the GAZETTZ of Mon
day, corrects tut follows: Hamill had no
race with Brown last Season. The last
race between those parties was at ew
burg, New York, in September, 11367 N, for
a purse of $4,000, and.was won by Hamill.
So it will be seen that Waiter never
wrested the. championship from our
townsman. Hamill, however, _after his
last race with Browp. resigned the cham
pionship, and the Portland oarsman then
proclaimed him self champ

Henry Coulter challed him in due
time, and , the race for the championship
last season, to which the aszsrro no
doubt alludes. was, between Brown and
Coulter. the former winning."
