Darr ON PAPER.—The.Republican edifors
Who, In: the recent Editorial Convention held'
at,Harrisburg, advocated' the., repeal of duty
on paper, ought to be discountenanced by all

itors, do .not: represent the...principles of Re
publicanism. That Democratic editors, who
Uphold European In preference toAmerican
inturest, should Introduce and support sueb
a measure, . we are not surprised at, 'But
shame on the Itepub I idlin,editor„ who, to save
biinself a few .pctinies, which, by the way, he
would not do if the duty Wa removed, would

kIArE WE AN AMERICAN CON
. • GRESS 7
rpo THE, humiliation of the American
_L people a:transaction 'took place at Wash
ington; -which ought to mantle the cheei, of
every American citizen with shame: The
Committee of Ways and. Means a short tithe
age - heard the Zargurnents c the American
pvltiol , rs, of Bituminous oal, and , they
voted to maintain the presetit duty.to protect
and develop this home trade... During this
week this same Committee insulted the
American people by permitting a Foreign
Agent—au emissary froth Nova Scotia to
giVe testimony before Said Committee aim/n.4
Qmetienti producerS,—and after hearing this
Foreign Agent, reversed theie former de
eision 'and resolvedao favor Foreign interests
. against American interests;i:: and take about
half a million collars out Alf. the National
TreaSury anti put it into the pocket,/ of Nova
• Scotia Cant 'speculators. prestime the
nexi step will be to send to-England and im
port ForeEign . manufacturers to give testiniii
ny also against other American interests.'.:—
If this decision is poi reversed, 'every tnem- ,
!her of - that Committee who done the bidding,
4 this'foreign emissary, ought to be brand
before the country a, having betrayed the
interests c our own country to betieilt for
eign interests: •. We speak warmly on this
' 'question, because,•we feel that the American
people have beeft grossly insulted through
the iteti4t.Of the Committee. •
par Slincie the above was in type, we learn
'that the committee of Ways and Meats have,
revemd.their decision. Glad to record it.
Gen. Jackson said in , his letter to Mr.
Coleman '"It: it tithe that the country be-.
comes -a little more -Americanised, and not

The 14111 relative to the publication of the Lua- - . -
IsLATIvE RECOan pass , .'d the Senate, but being
brought tip in the House, was yeste;day, after a
wearisome roar of words and a world of stußing,
defealed by. a vote of 16 to 76: . So the public will
not have to ondure a publication, which, owing
to the'. time or making its appearance, was 'of
littleo9 to them. The meuMers and people
will now have to rely solely4l n the published
journalstof ettChi Aay's proeeWinga,. and upon
the reporta of the neWspaiWs.
So ihir, the tilde of both Houses has been frit
tered atteay.in useless L 11800404 and very little
"of Legislative wisdom bas - been displayed by
th'e majority•of members.. There is a want of
unanimity of action between the Executive and
the co=ordinate brancheli of: the government,
and entirely too much political feeling evinced
to allot - one to hazard the opinion that the corn
munitY at Urge will be any More benetitted by
the ketton of this than that of previous Legisla
tures. ;:Thole is a great hue and cry about re
trenchment and reform, - and there is some dait
ger, atpresent, that those desirable objects will
be pursued to'the verge of niggardness. , • Lately
several of ourleading "Ring' politicians who
have been for years past latching pap through
the mune quill, have their pleaaantrelatiops
destrofred, and the result is that the
bat laughing public have been treated te I d Mry
of dirty, filthy linen with which they have for
years past been clothing' their political rotten
ness Trout the world. Greve' illenatentere mixed
