The following interesting story from the 6a
jwaak Mercury is recommended to our reulcn,
ssa ahte illustration of the great principles of
iWkmcna SYstem." .
For the purpose of illustrating the
idea, that h is sometimes cheeper for
. 9 community to pay nominally higher
WWts for many articles of consomp-
"than to bring the ame arttcle-from
,r,t 9 leg cash Price, we will
short sletch of the history l

cannot at this moment tell wheo or
" Ae the" history goesf wthe mte
"of we will say Massachusetts thtre
existed timet past, very flourish
ia a remote corner oi itotti
bet fittle foreign trade, and the villa
gers were consequently in the habit of.
rsiaufacturiog almost all articles for
doanettic use among themselves. Jilr.
Reran supplied bis neighbors with
-. ills, Mr, Snip the tailor made coats,
:z. di5tr.T, Crispin . iriade" shoes.- In
short, the blacksmith, the carpenter,
the cabinet maker, eilver-smith, all
found - employment, and - supported
their families W ease and competence.
The school matter, the doctor, the
lawyer, the barber, the printer and the
parson, , found 'T sufficient . pafrooage
arjsoogtbemt and all together gave a
profitable business to the grocer, and
to the dealer in fancy , articles. " The
farmers also for twenty miles around,

the productions" of her loom, lor cash
esugar and ieaj of whac'cbindshliff,
if she happened to prefer these arti
cles, as some good women will and
was never at a loss for a new bonnet.
But time effects changes every
where. The lawyer went to Boston,
and found that he could obtain a coat
for a less sum than he was in the hab
it of paying Mr. Snip, the village tai
lor. It was his interest, he thought,
tat bmr on the eheaneat trrm. So hi.

instead of purchasing them at hereto-
fore, at the village. Dr. Pestle said
be could buy better and cheaper shoes
in Boston than could be furnished by
2Ir. Crispin. Thus one after another,
the mechanics lost their business, and
so left the place. The shop-keepers
cooavfoUowed. their customers. At
length' the barber found that, saving
the lawyer, the doctor, and the parson,
be hd no chint to scrape so, in a fit
of the blue-devils, he drowned himself
in his own suds. What became of
the raitTia, we could never exactly
aaceruio. The d'Ktor, finding none
left to tale his pills, shifted his quar
ters. So did the parson. And in the
end. the lawyer, having monopolized
U the real estates of his neighbors, by
foreclosing the mortgages, found him
self the sole inhabitant of the skeleton
of the once flourishing village of Fair
"town"" and himself totally ruined" By
the otter worthlessness of the property
vhich he had acquiied.
The farmers in the neighborhood
bo longer found a market for their corn
raise over and above their own con
sumptioer, became worthless because it
could not be sold. The good woman

'payment of fheir taxes, their medi

xner indulgence had rendered neces
sary.. .They became poor; run in
debt ; theii land sunk in value ; and,
fit illy, those who were able, moved
away to some new purchase, perhaps.
Sucb is the history as we heard it.
If it is not authentic, il is no fault of
ours f but still it is just at good for
'CSX argument a if it were title. And,
farttitTmove.if it is fcot true, it may
become so, io a dozen instances, if our
citizens do not look better to their
own permanent interests.

Mr. Adami. The result of the wes

Mr. Adams' re-election,, worse than
hopeless. It is useless for him to con
tend any longer with the settled deter

he withdraws from the contest, the
better will it be for his own reputa

chance of success, he ought to give his

Mr. Adam a murderer. Since Mr.
Adams has come into office, he has
suffered six men to be executed, whom
he might have saved by granting them
a pardon. JThe:j:harge against Jack

the execution of the six militia meof
rests upon his failure to pardon them,
