THE QUEEN'S SPEECH
In rel.ition to this document, we fin , l
the knowing paragraph in the European
Our paper went In press, and
was de•patelted by the last stentner, on
the day that the Cl.teen opened Parliament.
As the Royal Speech has, ere this, reached
America, we deem it superfluous, at this
Maumee of time, to repeat it here. Like
similar loyal documents. it contains a few
paragraphs, the weaning of which. is suffi
ciently Wisc. re, and the elucidation of
which remains with the Minister as the
WAYS AND ME ‘NS—THE REV.
ENUE REDUCTION OF 1W
Sir Robert Peel estimates the revenue of the past
:year as follows:
This is his estimate of the income and expendit
ure as they will stand on the sth of April next; but
the Income-tax will expire, together with the
Chinese compensation money, in the present year.
Supposing, however, the Income-tax to he renew
ed, as it will be, the matters will stand thus:
Estimate above, £51,100,000
Half-year'. Income Tar,
Total Estimate for the year, £53,700,000
From this, however, lie deducts the £600.000 of
Chinese compensation, as it is an accidental income,
ao that it will be—
The reductions to be effected are--
Import duties on raw materials, including7_
Total loss to the Revenue, £3,358,000
which will nearly absorb the estimated surplus of
it will be seen that the whole of dm
programme is based upon the renewal of .
the Income-tax, which brings in a revenue
exceeding five millions.
& Smith oar, in the European
'Times There is no part of the lino--
ical scheme which has _i• en so much sat
isfaction as the abolition of the import
duty MI COMM ‘N out. This lax has been
'keenly felt by the Engli-lt manufacturer,
for it saddied him, on the coarser descrip
tion of goods, with ten and twelve rt.
cent. more than his Continental or Amer
jean competitors, and in the same degree,
it has prevented hint in the open markets
•of the world from competing with his ac
tive a•nd energetic rivals. It was a tax
ron the,productive power of the country,
and every one rejoices that it has been
swept away. The abolition of the duty
-on Collo,' will hardly he less popular in
America, from o hick we detive nearly all
, our supply, for what little extraneous
competition the manufacturer of the Nor
thern States may sustain will be more than
counterbalanced by the advantages accru
ing to the Southern planter.'
THE OREGON QUESTION
, Mr. Roebuck, in the (louse of Com
avows last night, wilted Sir Robert Peel
for full information regrruling the present
state of negotiations with the United
Staves tiovernineit on the Oregon clue.-
Lion, justifying f►is question by the recent
proceedings in the American noose of
Representatives. Sir Robert, in reply.
refused to give the information required,
stating that her Majesty's Ministers haul
not to deal with the House of Represent•
atives •in the matter. Another Mem .er
stated, that a work now publishing in
Paris by M. de Moroi, was decidely in
favor of the British claims.
THE PENNSYLVANIA INTEREST
Willi:ter* Smith say:
Few things have given more satisfac
tion in commercial circles than the intelli
gence which came to hand by the last
packet, that the State of Pennsylvania
has paid the interest of its debt for the
current six months. It is devoutly to he
wished, fur the credit of America in Eu
rope, that the payments for the time In
come may be punctual. There is one re
gret to mar the satisfaction—poor Sydney
Smith is dead. Pity that he was nit per.
mitted to see the restoration of American
credit and character, which it is thought,
he was mit a little insti umental in bring
ing about Ihe remittances on the div
idends have already come to hand."
THE DEVI 11 OF l'IlE REV. SYD

made that the people of Dublin, and in
all quarters, were indifferent about the

800 ! Who's afraid 7—Reading Dem.
Every man who knows what war is, is
afraid. Every man who regards the mar.
ale of the p• ogle, and the prosperity of
the nation, is afraid. Not afraid of the
cannon's roar, not afraid of loss ol limbs,
or lose of lite—these are not the objects
most dreaded by those who oppose war
but men who lived through the War of
1812, fear the awful demoralization which
is consequent upon war in its mildest
forms: the revolutions in business, the
disturbance of its channels, and the des
truction of so great a portion, as to send
thous Inds Into the ranks of the army,
who, instead of dying for their country's
good, return and make a costly peace bit
ter, by the exhibit:on of immorality re•
suiting from the changed lives.
Men fear war, because the pathless sea,
the home and highway of the mariner, ac•
quires dangers beyond those of the bils
luwe and foam—dangers compared to
a hick the shipwreck is a blessing.—War
bet ween commercial powers brings on pri •
vateering, that species of legalized piracy,
which is only the last step to the black
thg and death's head. The time of peace
that follows such a war, is, for a long sea
son, of slow improvement. The madden
ed passions of the buccanier are not sat
isfied wit i the comoom occurrences of a
seaman's life, or gratified with the ordi
nal), emoluments of a seaman's occupa •
tion. Ile must still give by his plunder;
he must rob to maintain himself, and
murder to prevent detection. We appeal
to the experience of meh who have a rec
millet:lion of the last war, and the state of
'mine of the West India Islinds, and the
indentations of the coast of the bolt of
Mexico: fur years after the peace of
Ghent, what are the effects of such con•
tests. %% e appeal ID those who received
back trims the armies of the South and
West, those relatives who went forth en•
listed tor the war, what was the state of
morals. We go not now allu.le to officers,
but to the far more num altos soldiers.—
Let experience teach in these matters.—
When war is threatened as the conse
quence of a violation of the customs of
nations, the expression of 800, who's
atom?" denotes ignorance of the very
character andcoo-rquences of war—con
sequences by no means to be overlooked
in our calculatens of evil, because Mex
ico happens to he a small nation compared
to the U, ited States: for that small na
ton has poser to sell cominissions for
privateeriog against our comtnerce, for
money enough to lore a very strong army
to invade our new ly acquired territory—
but tile horrors oil' privateering and piracy,
the destruct on of numbers, and the the
tor':iinces of regular business, and waste
of morals, are what citiz•ns should con
sider, when war is talked or; am i d a par
ty measure is too dearly purchased that
brings with it the occasions for such evils.
We would be the last to advise the
withholding of means from, or weaken
ing the hands of an administration of our
government when iovolved in war: but
we would do all that could be done to
preserve peace, and save our people from
the greatest scourge inflicted on nations.
--C. S. G
The following caseof domestic infelic
ity is till) directly in point to be lost, and
is too well depicted in the language (tithe
newspaper in which we find it, to be int
loosed by our hands :
A young planter in the upper part of
I the State. lately inatried to a beautiful
and intellectual lady, aler the honey
moon had passed, was 'mined to observe
that his young bride looked thoughtful at
1 1 times, and appeared to suffer much limn
enitui. Thitoking this tiii;:ht be caused
by the absence tif female companions, he
induced several young ladies, 'datives,
to make his house their home, in hopes
thereby to render het completely happy.
This arrangement had not the desired
fed. His beloved, though apparently
joyous and cheerful while conversing with
him, as conversation lagged relapsed into
that melancholy mood. Surprised at this
Le fell to pandering the cause, and atter a
lengthy reflection, he came to the conclu
sion to send to New York for a plant), to
be forwarded by the first ship bound for
Natchez, Vicksburg, or Grand Gulf.--
Well the musical companion at length ar
rived—anilla splendid one it was--of beau.
Will mahogany, ornamented, and polished I
to the value of a five hundred bill. And
then it discoursed such ravishing melody,
as the snowy fingers of the young bride
pressed the keys. .1 he young planter
was in raptures, and coagratulated him
self tin having procured the identical one
thing needful to his angel's felicity. Poor
man !--he paid but a poor eumplone tit to
his amiable parmer's intellect it he thought
.he could contentedly pass her lei-ure
hours in ihru taming over a forte
lie teas mistaken. Though music
bath chums," like love, it is not the only
distderatunt .n the world : for a while it
pleases the ear and touches the heart, but
ministers not to the mind 1 . The lady
seldom courted Apollo, and her husband
had the mortification of feeling 4 that he
had not yet made his domicil a paradise
to her he adored." At last to solve the
riddle of her discontent, he asked if she
did not at times regret having entered the
marriage state. Olt no, indeed," she
replied with great earnestness—" never
tar a moment have 1 been other than
your happy wife but 1 sometimes,—
sometime what, dearest P '• If
I must tell you then—somet:ntes I do re•
Bret that you do not take the newspeper,
Papa, takes a hull a dozen."
Let every young husband who loves his
wife, and who would keep her happy, and
thus preserve an amiable temper, remem
ber the case here cited, and steadily avoid
the error pointed out.
NVe perceive that our neighbors Gotley,
anti Graham, have both taken out a copy
right for theft respective Magazines.—
This is rather new, but on looking at the
matter carefully, we think it entirely cor
rect. The articles in each Magazine
costs, we suppose, from 300 In $500.
These are frequently taken nut bodily,
and before the Lady's Book, or Grahlm's
Magazine, reach 11;111 their subscribers,
their contents have been made familiar to
the community through the daily or Week
ly papers. Not to give offence to any
body, we will state a Net. Graham gave
us fifty dollars for a story, and we publish
ml the same article in the United States
Gazette almost as soon as it appeared in
the Magazine. We, of course, asked
