! On the 29th and 30th there ; is to
be a Tariff Convention in New York.
It is to be a raeeting of Protection- j
ists. They are'not satisfied with the
present burdensome,' unjust and , un- j
equal war tariff, but they; want
further protection, they say, : for
American industry, and like Oliver
Twist they are resolved to "ask for
more." As impudence pays they will
succeed probably in j their demands
It is said the High Tariff advocates
have grown strong with a very un-j
common insolence. ? They think j evi4
dcntly that the form of government
under which we live was devised

as upon the movements of political
parties, it is prbclarmed in advance
boldly what they expect to do. ; Says
the circular: ! j" i
"This, convention is expected to super-;
sede the weakness and timidity of a merely
defensive stand by the vigor and onward,
force of an aggressive policy. Manufac-'
turers should now assert their right to pro-.
with both hands and demand the full and 1
uninterrupted guarantee of the laws. Power
to protect home industry was put in tne
Constitution by its founders in pursuance.
of a set purpose to put it there. Pro-'
tection is right; it was intended to be guar-i
anteed by the orgaaie;-law of the . Union.;
The right should stand erect upon its feet,;
demand its honest duesand fearlessly defy;
the wrong." ' j'. ; i : ; . :

It is mentioned by the New York
correspondent! of the Philadelphia
Ledger that there is a well under
stood purpose among the Protec
tionists of the country to form, a
grand combination and makfa uni
ted assault upon ! the Congress foY the
purpose of capturing it. He says
"that, foreseeing that the tariff pro

legislation of such a-ehaaeeT 9& at
