A man named Von Vliet was convi'ted
there, at the last term of the General Ses

Mrs. Hoffineister. who swore that he came
to her hinise to buy an old watch—was
left alone for a few minutes in a room
where the sovereigns were in a bureau,
and that immediately after his departure
she discovered that they were gone also.
Her evidence -was confirmed by that of one
Moore, who said he was a clerk to Von
Vliet at ,the time, and swore that on the
day mentioned by Mrs: EL Von Vliet
showed him a bag .containing 470 save

evidences Von Vliet was convicted. But

actually belonged to Von Vliet, he having

' It is the settled, pulley of our govern
ment to provide for its wants by a Tariff.
of duties. It is incredible that the doc—
trines of Free Tiade can , win extensive
public favor, unless some other mode of
raising revenue can be devised. None
other, as a substitute, has ever been hin
ted at, except a system of direct taxation.
Were that plan suggested iu the public
councils. the whole south would rise up
against it. They could not nor would not
agree to tax the immense amount of slave
property. But if the south were ready
for this scheme, no 'statesman who values
his position or reputation would urge it.
It is Manifest, thin, that we must have a
Tariff for revenue,—a Tariff as permanent
as the public necessities are lasting. To
what extent duties should reach, must be
measured by our wants.
Connected with this subject, is that of
protection to our home industry. And if
our wants for revenue are lasting, and re
quire permanent means for relief, and
this relief is to be sought by a perma
nent tariff which shall discriminate in fa
vor of home Productions—there will be
found in such a system what the labor and
industry of the country demand. With
less than this the public mind will not be
satisfied—ought not to be content. Such
a system is in keeping with the national
habits—the national expectations—with
all our necessities, public and private, and
must be perpetuated, if public sentiment
is to rule, or past experiettce be any guide
for public men.
The doctrines of Free Trade are beautiful
abstractions to us. To us, we say, they
are beautiful abstractions, for they are not
abstractions to all nations. Switzerland
is the-most prosperous county in Europe,
and she has not a single custom house•—
But we are hot Switzerland—nor can we
deduce from her past history, her geo
graphical position, nor from her ptesent
example. any confident course of policy•
We commend the course of Messrs'
Buchanan and Sturgeon, on the subject of
the Tariff act. They did the best they
could, and acted wisely. It would be ah
stud to suppose that the bill of duties ig
not susceptible of improvement. But we
protest against any departure fron: its es—
sential featwel,and against agitating its re—
peal. We concur entirely with the views
expressed by the' New York State Con—
vention, (which recently met to nominate
a Governor, &c.) in their seventh'resolu-
Resolved, Th we are the friends or a perms'

burdening the agricultural and planting interests;
and while we disapprove of some of the provisions
of the present tariff, as being so high as to be pro
hibitory, and thus preventing revenue, we approve
of the vote of our Senator, Silas Wright, jr., he be
ing compelled to vote for this till or none, and his
negative vote would have continued the horizontal

and the linurt , s of the rich, and have hilt the
trovernment wuhnut adequate means to pay its
debt., and the people of this great nation would
have been disgraced in the eyes of the civilized
We have no doubt that the above reso
lotion expresses substantially the views of
the Democratic party, on that important
subject. New York and Pennsylvania
will have no discord between them re
specting the Tariff. Our friends in the
South will finally concur in such expedient
measures of political policy, as will at once
secure the pubic interests, and harmon
ize the views and feelings of the democrat
ic party—a party, which, with the control
of the government soon to be found in their
hands, will not be wanting in disposition to
administer it wisely. Indeed, whatever
party may rule, they will not be able to de
part from the duty and of safety, marked
out in the resolution which we have copi

sed from the field of party contest; arid as
the President very properly sets forth in
his veto message, should be placed on such
grounds of general approval as to be last

mote no views of political aggrandizement

And if it would, we are free to declare that
we should join in no such clamor, believ

accident. Let a suitable reward he off:red for

it, they will be ferreted nut. Justice and decency
require that they should be made an example of;

The !tiadrid advises are to the 25th ult., at
which date there are vague rumors of a dissolu.
Linn of the Cortes, and of a war between Spain and
Portugal, becau4e the troops of former•country
were approaching the Portuguese frontiers. It is

The Paris papers of the Ist inst., are barren of
news. The leading topic of is the de
cree of the King of the Belgians, extending to ti.e
German wines and silks the same advantages as
those lately conceded in the French treaty. The
opposition prints attack the Cabinet for its want
orability and foresight in not preventing Belgium
from thus fityoring Germany. It is remarked that
the French treaty c iinc. int f.ree on the 12.11,
and the ordinance of King Leonel I OFI the 28th
ult. The right of Belgium is not denied, but her
ingratitude Is strongly urged. The Courier Fran•
cais recommends the formation of a Custom
house union with 13t:vurn, and thinks that the
German wipes bnd silks-can stand no competititm
with the French, a position, however, which the
Presse does not admit.
The Chambers were prorogued on the 301 h ult.,

spoke, when the law was put to the vote, and
passed by 163 votes against It.
CornmarpriorLs, Aug- 17 —The Grand Vir:er,
in spite °fall.prognostications to the contrary,
continues to maintain himself in his place;—all
his official props or partisans having been remo

es a usual, and necessary consequences of this
process-411 himself. Mnstapha Bey, who through
his interest had farmed the customs of Constanti
nople, was last week made to relinquish them to
their `ci-devant' director, Fahir .13ey. The tact
was, that after the expulsion of his relation, Izzet
Bey, from the Mabein, lie lost
,his credit with the
Sarafs, who refused to be responsible for him any
longer. The Grand V:zier; however, seems sub
sequantly to have made his peace with Riza Pa
sha: he is ;known at the Porte to have bad n. noc•
tornal interview with him last week, and, judging
from the result their reconciliation appears to have
been complete. -
Prince I Stephenalti (Vognrides) having been
charged by the Porte with the negotiation of the
treaty with Greece, is occupied in a daily exchange
of notes with M Mar ~ ocorciato. f lt la to-be feared
this diploauttic tug between two Greeks. equally
