Mrs. Wlnslow's soomtng syrup.
Rev SylvanusCobb thus writes In the Boston
Christian Freeman: We would by no means re
r, mmend any kind of meniclne which we did not
know to be good particularly for Infants. But of
Mrs Wlnslow's Soothing Syrup we can speak from
knowledge; in our own family It has proved a
blessing indeed, by giving an Infant troubled with
llc pains, quiet sleep, and its parents unknown
rest at night. Most parents can appreciate these
blessings. Here is an article which works to per
fection and which is harmless; for the sleep
which it affords the infant Is perfectly natural, aud
the little cherub awakes as "bright as a button."
And during the process of teething, its value Is
tnnlculable. We have frequently heard mothers

has the following :
"The merchants of North Carolina
groan under a tax of H of 1 per cent, on

chase. We appeal to the good people of

Legislature net fail who will vindicate
the fair fame of the State by a prompt
repeal of the vile law."
To all of which we say amen. The
merchant should bear his pro rata of

government, but he should not bear
more, and when he has paid his tax on
valuation, like everybody else has to
do, ho shouldn't be required to do more.
By all the rules of fairness and justice
the purchase tax clause in the "Ma

THE CITY FATHERS
Hold up the Hands of the City Graded
' School Commissioners, Sit Down
Hard on the 20th May Celebration,
and Transact Sundry Other Business.
The regular monthly meeting for
April of the board of aldfermen of the
city, took place yesterday afternoon at
the mayor's office, and upon a call of
the roll a quorum was found to be
After a formal reading and adoption
of the minutes of the preceding meet
ing of the boarfl, the mayor announced
that a committee representing the
graded school commissioners was pres
ent and desired to be heard, whereupon
Mr. Armistead Burwell, the chairman
of the committee, stated the difficulties
which had hitherto prevented the com
missioners from carrying out the act of
the Legislature, under which they were
elected, which in, substance was that
shortly after the graded school act had
been carried, the city tax collector had
been enjoined from the collection of the
taxes levied under the law, which in
junction was not finally removed until
the official opinion of the Supreme
Court was received December 25th,
1881. At that time the commissioners
found that the regular free schools un
der the State larw had been put into
operation. The graded school commis
sioners found themselves, for the first
time having an official existence which
was not disputed, but without any
funds. They declared it was best
to postpone the operations of the graded
school act for the present. They now
appeared before the authorities of the
city government to ask
1st. That the board of aldermen
should decide whether they were to be
continued as commissioners until the
next regular city election as contem
plated in the act, or whether a new
election was to be ordered.
2d. If continued, they asked that the
tax levied last year, of ten cents on the
one hundred dollars' worth of property,
and the tax on the poll for last year as
well as the present tax term for this
year be collected and turned over to
the treasurer ol the board; and
3d That the 85,000 interest owned by
the city in the "Charlotte Male and Fe
male Academy" be assigned to the com
missioners with authority to dispose of
it as might be deemed best, in rder
that a fund might be raised for the
erection or purchase of suitable schoel
Mr. Burwell stated that after a suc
cessful school had been started, the
commissioners had assurances from Dr.
Curry, the agent of the Peabody fund,
that substantial encouragement might
be expected from that fund, which en
couragement meant, he thought, from
81,500 to S2.000 per annum.
At the conclusion of Mr. Burwell's
remarks, both Gen. Johnston and Mr.
D. W. Gates, the other members of the
committee, addressed the board in the
same line of argument, at the conclu
sion of which the following resolutions
were unanimously adopted:
Resolved, That the board of school
commissioners for the graded schools of
the city of Charlotte, elected on the
day of June, 1880, be continued in office
until the next regular election or a
board of aldermen, on the 1st day of

BEFORE A NEW YORK AUDIENCE.
Senator Vance Portrays the Evils of
Protection, as Compared to the Vir
tues of Free Trade.
On the evening of the 14th inst,
Governor Vance addressed a large au
dience at Chickering Hall, New York
city, on the subject of the tariff. We
clip the following synopsis of the pro
ceedings from the New Haven Regis
ter, and publish it for the benefit of Ob
server readers :
Chickering Hall was well filled last
evening upon the occasion of the public
meeting neln under the auspices or the
New York Free Trade club "to consider
the necessity of an immediate reform
in the unjmt unequal and iniquitous
system of taxation called a protective
tariff." Inasmuch as political economy
is not a science much affected by the
fair sex the large number of ladies
present is noteworthy. The speeches,
however, were not dry and statistical,
and were listened to with as much in
terest by the ladies, apparently, as by
their mde escorts. Senator Vance's
speech, in particular, which was pro-
tusely illustrated by droll anecdotes,
seemed to meet with general approval.
lhe semi-circular railing in front of
the balcony of the hall was decorated
with free trade aphorisms; or, as a pro
tectionist would perhaps consider
them, sophisms. The following legends
were conspicuously displayed:

port of the government?

llow all -these incongruous results
are to be secured, men bound down by
the ordinary and illiberal rules of logic
fail utterly to discover. If. as is claim
ed, protection confers equal benehts up
on all, it is useless, leaving all people
exactly where it finds them. Calling
prices by big names does not increase
the nation's wealth. But if cne man is
benefitted at the expense or another

ought to look ashamed every time he
spoke the words. If protectionists were
honest men tney would take down
their false banners and put up the truth
'free trade in flesh and blood, and pro
tection for striped flannels.
Workingmen should know, that pro
tection invited, the fiercest competition
in all they bad to sell, and added heavi
ly to the cost of all they had to buy.
Senator vance spoKe or rne strikes
and lockouts now daily occurring and
said one cause of this condition of af
fairs was over-production stimulated by
hieh duties. This over-production could
not be carried on without loss to some
body, and that somebody was, the wofk
ingman. Protected manufacturers kept
crying out to the workingman : "Never
helping on a great cause. Protection is
for the benefit of the American labor
er." But the moment it became the
manufacturers' duty to sustain losses
they declined to do so, and down drop
ped wages. Why should they not ex
hibit some little sacrifice themselves
and not put it all on the working men ?
The fact was figures showed the profits
of protection all went into the pockets
of the manufacturers. The pretense
that protection benefitted the consumer
by enabling the manufacturer to pay
higher wages and prices, the Senator
continued, had nfl bearing on any one,
except, possibly, the farmer. The fal
lacy of the claim lay in the implication
that the manufacturer would pay hieh-
er wages and prices, simply because he
could do bo, the truth being that he
would tav the market price for labor
and no more. As to the allegation that
protection benefitted any otner class,
I neither a protectionist nor an army
mule of twenty-three campaigns could
muster "cheek" enough to claim that it
was so. Them was, indeed, one view
from which orottctiou might be con
sidered a ben-jfit. Wealth was very
often a soui-j of pride and conceit.
Wealth enabled a man to get a good
dinner, and a &od dinner often made a
man feel too independent. rovartv
provided no good dinner, and a hungry
man was apt to be blessecrwith humili
ty and a proper respect for wealth. In
this respect it might be a good thing for
nine-tenths of the people to be kept
poor in order to enrich the other tenth.
That protection added to the national
wealth was nonsense Senator Vance
contended. If a person could buy an
article for Si and the government made
him pay $1.50 for it, no logic outside of
a lunatic asylum could make it out a
benefit to the government. The manu
facturer got the extra 50 cents, and the
government's wealth was that much
ess. Manufacturers got rich, and the
question for protectionists was. "where
did their wealth come from?" Was it
not taken from the people by taxation ?"
If so, then the gain of the manufacturer
was the loss of the consumer, or all
ogic was useless. Massachusetts, with
its bleak climate and sterile soil, was
wealthy. North Carolina, with its
splendid soil, was poor. Where did
Massachusetts get her riches? From
N. Carolina and other States. "I don't
blame Massachusetts," said the speaker.
Id do it myself it 1 lived in that
State and you would let me. I'd make
every cent I could out of you, with the
help or protection, it s an honorable
kind of thievery. But I blame the peo
ple or my State and other States tor
submitting to it." Business, he contin
ued, was controlled by selr-interest.
There was not a man in New "York
who would pay a merchant ten dollars
because he was an American, or a Re
publican or a church member, provided
he could get the same goods trom an
other merchant for nine dollars. Pro
tection was compelling men to buy
lrom the ten-dollar merchant. The
Senator then asked why the majority
submitted to such an imposition, and
permitted the manufacturer to buy his
material and labor in the cheapest mar
ket and sell his products in the dearest
market made dear by protection. One
reason, he continued, was because the
minority was organized, while the ma
jority was not. T ie minority was in
dividually rich, wh) e the majority was
individually poor. The minority was
grouped together in cities and commu
nities, while the majority was scattered
all over the country. Sectional and
party prejudices were brought to bear
by the minority to prevent the majori
ty from rooking at their interests in
the true light. The protectionists
owned Conjressmen, newspapers, poli
ticians and Judges by the thousand,
and by those means they had girdled
the land with laws for their own pro
tection. Like sharks, they fed upon the
unresisting multitudes of the unorgan
ized majority. The protectionist en
tered the hut of the poor man, demand
ing a duty on the door-latch, and called
tor a duty ot 56 per cent, on ms salt.
He crept into the hovel or a lever-
stricken laborer and, by the bedside of
the dying man, demanded 100 per cent.
duty on his medicines. In conclu
sion. Senator Vance said he reared
long years of agitation would be
needed before the great majority
iCt together, but he believed the day
was surely coming when, forgetting the
prejudices of the war, the western
farmer and the southern planter would
recognize the fact that they were fel
low-sufferers and clasp hands together
for self-preservation. belt-interest
would yet triumph over prejudice, and
the majority would yet control, as it
ought. In the progress of free trade
principles New York city and its mer
chants should take the lead. The gos-
oelof tariff reform, looking toward
tree trade when the c-untry was out of
debt, should begin in tlm Jerusalem
and be preached to every country.
