utterly disregarded the fact that increas
ed numbers cause increased production.
This is another of the mysteries which
nrelop this subject ; indeed it is full of.
mysteries and contradictions that the
Senator from Verment thought propero
intimate iu an Indirect wajr that protec
tion is not an exact science, Iu fact it is
' necessary to warn reasouable people that
there are many things connected with ij;
not reconcilable to the law of truth, nei
thei indeed can be. There is no end to
' the wonders performed by this remarka
ble doctrine. It cheapens production of
course byjidding say 50 percent, to the
price of the article over aud above first
costr-a species of economical legerdemain
which passeth common, understanding.
It does not, however, pass' in strangeness
the next proposition,. which is that it in
creases wages. Now, if it increases wages
Jiow can it cheapen production T Aud if
it cheapens production how can it in
crease wages a large part of the cost ef
I production f , Finally, how can ii do both
! and protect mauufactui erg, and why do
)by want it T Another wondeifui thing
performed in the name of this doctrine
and by its power is that, while it is the
cause of all oar prosperity , it is never
under any circumstances tlie canseof an5
of our misfoi tunes. Nothiug but blessings
ever come from it. Pious old .Job com
forted himself in the midst of his afflic
tions when the Chaldeans had levied a
high protective duty on his amels and
asses by exclaiming submissively, "Shall
we receive good at the hand of (iod and
. shall we not receive evil V but the vener
! atiou of the protectionists for the doctrine
under which they fatten on the industry
f others admits of no such ; impiety as
this, - All is good that comes from protec
tion, and the vil that we sufier arises
simply from want of more protection. ,
A larorite-form of pntting it, which ; is
a kind of affirmative jpregnant, is this :
,They do not say that protection lias done
all these things directly, but they say
that, "under the protective system'" thus
and so has taken place, leaving it o be
inferred by the casual or the ignorant
-, that the relation of cause and effect ex
ists between, the tariff and those events.

A Great Triumph.
Senator Vance has had at last his op
portunity, and has made a speech which
ranks him as one of tho first in American
oratory and statesmanship, j II is great
speech on the tariff question places him
in -tue same relation to national reputa
tion that he has heldtwith such long tin
questioued ppwer in, State politics; and
and tho name of Zebulon iB. Vance will be
indissolubly aud authoritatively associut
edjwith the great national question of
dajy. For it is clear that the other ques
tions so long agitating the public mind
are temporary iiv their duration, involv
ing heat and temper, the ebullitions of
-aBsions created by tho war, kept" lashed
uo fury by tins necessities of party, but
1 1 I
Heritably to subside as the cool judg
ment of the people assei-ts its influence.
Tle tariff question ou the other hand, is
one above ail others, which imist imper
atively exact popular consideration aud
8oticitude so soon as other vexed subjects
sink into their natural insignificance. It
is la life long struggle between tho lordly
anjet millionaire manufacturer, in the
plntitude of his suffocating wealth still
puttiug up the plea of infancy for the
protection of his adult iudnsitries aud
ths people, the producer and.
iug men determined no Ion
ground to powder or kept to
sustain the sentimental idea
tion to American manufacturers, when
those manufactures have not; only be-
coome able to protect themselves, out
are turned into grievous engines of op
pression to the people. i
Senator Vance places himself in hearty
accord with his constituents.: They en
dorse every word that he has spoken,
they echo every sentiment he has ex -
pressed, they realize every burden he
ha& pictured. They deihand -relief from
an oppression only patiently borne when
national necessities seemed jto demand!
manly; forbearance under suffering, liut
when the national treasury I is able to
bohist itself or. munificent surplus; when
it Is able to enter upon ai measure of cx-
trqvagaut charity, and Vote its millions
to the enrichment of fraudulent pensions
agents; and when the manufacturers
have become so rich thai they! can com
bine to defy the govern tnent, and tram

and while Mr. McAllister read the ser

THIS MACHINE is a plain wooden tank lined with copper or galvanized m,
with perforated; pipes in the bottom for the admission of steam, with corrugated Roler,
made of same mettle, and of sufficient weight. This Roler gathers the air while cv
ing back and forth over the cloths, forcinir
time the steam is thrown up through the perforated pipes underneath from the bottom
ef the tank. There are wooden strips between the pipes so as to protect them and form
a smooth bottom in the tank. '
The" process is simple : any one can operate the machine. Pirst, soap the cloths jod
distribute them evenly about four.br five inches thick in the tank. Turn on enough w-
ter to cover them turn on steam, and mover the Roler back and forth untl the wit
is colored. Turn the valve and let the water pass off. Add fresh water, and repeat tli
three or four times, and. you find the clothes are thoroughly washed withoutjhe slight
