it is in perfect keeping with Mr. Clay's'
ettli.that he should have opposed the late bill.—
And ire,appeal to the friends of Home I odustry,—

'Oink have favor ably influenced Domestic Men-'
Ufacturee, including all the interests of labor.—
While to Henry Clay's compromise we aro in
debted, for the horizontal plan of a reduction of
duties to 20 per cent. We see then, thaqwhile,
for party purposes, the whiga set up clairrik to be
the exclusive friends of protection, they are in
fact hose who, by the compromise, practically
waived the policy of discriminating duties in fa.
vor of home industry. We do not say that the
Compromise, at the time and under the circum
stances, was wrong, for it was the work of both
parties, for peace. But we do say, that if the po
sitibn-of the country on the subject of the Tariff,
from that cause, has been disastrous, it is more to
Henry Clay than to others we owe that position,
,inasmuch as the measures which placed us in that
position wore his niresures. Ile introduced the
Compromise Bill and cffzeted its passage, and for
that very measure he has been lauded by the
Whigkof the South: and by them, at least, lie is
still held up as its advocate. We do not now intro
duce these remarks so much as a reflection on Mr.
Clay himself, or on his friends, as to show that
hazards and injuries to American labor had a
whigorigin. Every one knows that no party in
the South will be found to advocate the protec lion
of home industry. We ad.nit that some of our
prominent men in the South opposed it, but then
that portion oft he Democratic party in the South
which opposes a proper discriminating tariff of
duties, has not }et had, and is not likely to have
sufficient influence to hinder its existence. On the
contrary, a discriminating tariff originated with
the Democratic party, and was sit aside by the
concessions of Mr. Clay to those who oppnvd
Everyone, observant of the past, and capable of
noting the signs for the future, must perceive,
that. if a permanent tariff shall i xist in this coun
try, the Democratic party must keep it in being.
- What hope can the country have from a party
every where beaten down, (as are the whip) and
incapable, from causes inherent and self destrue

T:t wilt satisfy the reasonable expectations of the
friends of hone Industry tht' ti cir essential in.,
threats will sow] b. io hands haling the will and

Courage, like other qualities, has ,its va
rieties. Some men are born brave, oth
acquire intrepidity from example, and
even a timid spirit may be stimulated by
action, until personal apprehension is o
vercome. Amidst the crush of battle the
dullest soul catches a glorious impulse,and
for the time, casts off its natural torpidity.
To exert, however, that mental calmness
which conveys in brief and lucid language
the details of plans of action, requiring the
agency of many, and whose success the
misconception of an individual might des
troy; this demands a philosophic concen
tration of thought which many, found fore
most in the fight, never can obtain. This,
the most important quality of a general,
Napoleon and Wellington posiessed ex
tensively, and when the fate of battle hung
upon a hair, both were calm and self col
lected, and the order, upon which victory
or defeat depended, was issued with
coolness that approached insensibility.—

said, give us your hand. A word, however, at
parting as to your peculiarly sarcastic taunt on
the tariff. In the first place, it is presumed that
there is not naw, arid that there never has been
an anti tariff man in the United States. Even
the nullifiers were satisfied with a tariff for reve
nue. And, as to the Democrats, they are now.
an I always have bean in favor of a judicious tar ,

and so adjusted as to afford protection to the me

The cost of the last Congress.—Many
of our exchange !papets are enlightening
their readers on the cost of the last Con
greas. In round numbers the Madisonian
puts down the amount, for the 'House of
Representatives, at one million and a half
of dollars. If this amount was all that the
people have to pay. great as - it-ie, it would
still be-but an inconsiderable item. To
form proper estimate of the cost to the pen
ple,we must take - into the account the con
stant Jo=s by the suspensitin of almost eve—
ry kind of business. W ' e= do not doubt
that a eum ten dates greater-that; that ob.,
