otlu r year of human txisteiiL-i-. "'liv
ery eve we pilch our tout a day's
m:irvli nearer lion.'.'."' Happy are we
if in the retro-poet of the year and
the day our conscience bears tis wit
ness that wc have KXIiKavohcd not
withstanding many failures to In;
liuiiilde ulToic (!od ami ! lie ju.-t
w iih man. Yet, in view a'i the many
sins of omisr-ion and of coin mission
which a rigid self-examination lnu-t
disclose, we sliould each le.-oive, in
the help of Him whose aid is st;lli
cient, to lio r.Ki rF.u for the f.muc, in
whatever may he our vocation, or
whatever relations we may sustain to
our fellow men.
Kleven years of our connection
with this paper, have now elap.-id.
Many of itsfn-.-t patrons still remain,
l.tit, yearly, wo have to erase the
names of those whom death has
claimed as his own. Those vacan
cies have licen more than made t rin
jiunilier, Imt the real loss we and .
their more immediate friends feel can
never be fully H i'i'UKi'.
Again we thank those (not all of
our own party) whose cordial appre
ciation of our labors has continued a
patronage now better than any ever
enjoyed by any newspaper in this
county. N e shall seek to Le worthy
lishing a prompt, reliable, home uews-
paper, advocating such measures and
met, ns We believe t'.lC tUlblio 'rOod rC-
quires, and denouncing such men and
measure as we believe exert an iu
lluence hostile to the best interests of
our land and of our race.
Should we continue to be favored
as at present, we intend to present
the Cmtoxtci.E printed on new tyjic
before the year closes.
The Advance System we shall prac
tice as on the whole much the best
for both patrons mid publishers. We
are not particular as to a day or a
week, when we know a person to be
honest ami reliable, and know that
lie desires our paper ; but we wi.-h to
force it upon none, and can not wait
for and run the risk of recovering
small sums scattered over thousands
of miles.

contend. All that is needed is simply
that the Kplo's indorsements on their

not be? Who has any right to forbid

Referring to the Secretary! report, it
will be seen that tbe average price of pig
iron for 12 years, from 1846 to 1857, in
clusive, was 829,00, and that, at 30 per
cent, tbe duty would have been C,i0.
From 1848 to 1852, tbe average price was
$23,54, and at 30 per cent., the duty was
$0,76, and yet the total consumption of
iron and steel, and tbe manufactures there
of, imported, was, during these five years
of low duty, but $84,326,254 ; wbereaa,
during the next five years, from 1S53 to
1857 inclusive, tbe consumption wag
$134,432,328, although the price had ris
en $33,20, and tbe duty at the same rate
would have been $9,00, instead of $0,70;
showing, conclusively, Ibat a low price
ports or the revenue. It follows, that this
low rate of duty is not tbe tevenjest.n

Th tables furnished by the Secretary

it is alike opposed to the interests of the

when the manufacture of iron languishes,

Tbo reason of this is given in a letter
of Mr. John A. Wright, who says :
"The average number of men employ-
ed at a charcoal furuaee making 1000 tous
pig iron per year, is not less toan o, ma-

We find from the Secretary's table, that
tbe production of pig iron, which, until
1820, was but 20,000 tons, had in 1855
risen to 1.000.000 tone. If we ar.plv the

would be the efftct on tho price of gn-
iulfitrii nrriiltietfi. la the interior and cs-
pccially in tbe remote parts of the great
West, if there wcro do railroads or
steamboats to cheapen transportation ?
And bow are the railroads and steamboats
built ? Are tbey not the result of tbe
surplus profits, and the credits resulting
from the profitable employment of our
labor ?
How can 350 persons, dependent on
tbo manufacture of 1000 tons of pig iron,
consume $8000 worth of merchandise ? Is
it not because tbe 70 men who are em
ployed in its manufacture earn at least
$21,000 per annum, a part of wbicb pays
for tbe merchandise, and a part for the
agricultural products which they consume?
bo gentlemen wbu advocate a mere reve
nue duty take into consideration tbe fact
that by diversifying labor we give employ
ment to many men in agriculture, who, by
the supply of iron workers, kc, with pro-;
visions, ic, obtain the means of eonsum-
ing foreign imports, and thus contribute So he hoped that if bis arguments in re
their proportion of tbe revenue ? Dj the spouse to them seem to be addressed to
opponents of an increased duty upon iron the Senators from the Atlantic States, they
lake into consideration tbe fact that unless j will do him justice to reflect that it is only
the duty be so increased as to enable our
iron masters to compete with foreign iron.
the pcreons now dependent on tbe iron I
manufactures must become agriculturists? j
and Ibat tbe effect must be redundant
supply, and tbat the value of the whole
agricultural produce, increased as the
quantity will be, will be diminished in the
rate of the excess? For there will be an
increased quaulity without an increased
consumption. This, then, is tbe solution
of tbe fact that tbo consumers of iron
find tbat tbeir business is less profitable
when foreign iron is abundant and cheap.
It ii because tbe introduction of cheap
foreign iron at a low rate of duty ruins
tbe home manufacture, and, by depriving
the farmers of a borne market for their
surplus products, deprives them of tbeir
ability to purchase.
This memorial embraces other impor
tant facts. Wo find by tables given oo
pages 99 and 100, tbat tbs price of pig 1
I iron in filasgow has varied from :J3 75
of to $10 30j, and that the price of bar iron
has varied S09 50 to $25 ; and that the
best iron was charged at from $') 25 to
8S 50 extra price. Con any cue of the
advocates of a low ad vulortm duty ex
plain the reason why the price of iron
nhould Buctuate so much in the 13riti$b
market? or can any one justify a system

The memorial presented by Mr. Cam- i
eron was ordered to oe printed J
Senator Seward on the Pacific Railroad. 1
Washington, Dec. 21, 1S58. The i
Pacific Railroad Bill came up. j
Mr. Seward, of New York, addressed
the Senate. He said tbe descendants of !
tbe Dutch colonics of New Tork keep for j
ever bright the memories of their Father- ;
land. Whenever, however, be traveled ;
in Holland, be could hardly find there one .
lingering tradition of tbe settlement of the I
New Netherlands. It is always so. Tbe I
aflcction of emigrant for their Dative
country is ever stronger than tbe sympa
thies of that country for its exiles. The
Senators from California as yet tbe only
representatives bcre of society on the Pa
cific coast are committed to this great
measure, and are earnest in it support
on this side of tbe liocky Mountains that
the snow and ice of indifference and pre-
judicc resist conviction.
lie would not say much concerning the
details of this bill. If he were allowed to
prescribe a route, and the policy of con
structing a Pacific railroad now, be would
choose a path which would be a continua
tion of the road tbat our great northwest
ern emigration bas hitherto followed. Ue
would discard all employment of compa
nies, and all grants of public lands, and
would build tbe road as a military, postal,
and national highway, with the money
and credit of the Federal Government,
and surrender the lands along its route
to tho actual settlers, free of cost. He
would increaso the revenue by increasing
the tariff on imports, and create a siokiug
fund to absorb gradually the public debt.
But be bad concurred ia presenting tho
bill now under consideration, because it
was tbe only alterative. He adci.'t.
At $l,-0 Per
bill. But it is time for deliberation to
end, and for action to begin. So, boing
earnest in bis desire for a l'a ific raiirja'i,
! he would accept the bill as it stauda.
Mr. Reward then answered, fucccs.iv-
ly, the general ulijcctious sgnitist the con
struction of the road. Coiiiuierce.he tuid,
is only an incidental interest in connection
with the road. It is wanted, first and

taio, and all our ren

flicts are so many manifestations of the
energy and ambition of the Americans
It is obvious that this activity must
take either a m irtial or a civic direction, !
and that, if it du not receive the latter'
from tbe bands of the Government, it will .
force the Government to guide into tbe :
former. How, otherwise, can we explain .
the constant agitation of tho Filibuster!
movements, the O-teud manifesto, and the
Monroe doctrine ? To him it seemed clear '
tbat this peaceful acting is far more useful ;
than military activity ; is for every nation j
more safe, cheap, frugal, saving, and in- '
creat-ing coutiuually the number and i
wealth of tbe cation. War is bazirdoni, i
desolating, and its greatest benefit obtain- i
ed at a fearful cost. :
History teaches us that the constant j
practice of war is incompatible with tbe '
permanence of a system of self-government. I
If he were asked why the British race on
this continent is republican, he would say j
it is because tbe national activity assumes ,
a peaceful character, as monarcbial coun- j
tries assume a military one. If the na
tional activity is to have a peaceful direc
tioD, it must be confined ia its energies !
chiefly witbin our own territory. Uur !
domain is already irovnf enough, and the
opportunity for our activity commensurate
with it. The Pacific Railroad with its
connections and linea of telegraph are the '
cngines by which this consolidation must 1
be effected. !
Ile did not shrink from the enterprise
because of its magnitude. Were it hss :
formidable, it would be less adapted to the '
spirit and genius of the American people.
Tho enterprise is not really formidable, '
considered in relation to the benefits of
peace, wealth and strength, to be derived
from the agr.eultural, mineral, manufac-
turing and commercial resources of tho j
rCg,I0D' , v , , , . i
In conclusion, be would say that, if the
... J ' ;
uaibiousti atuviij is u i.o ittecmi mu.
beneficial direction, tbe responsibility of;
directing it belongs to Congress. It can '
not be left to the States. Tbe revenues
belong to tbe Federal government, and it j
alone has power to act within tbe territo-!
ries. Ida called on every Senator to earn j
