We publish on our first psge this week
the important law in relation to Laudlord
and Tenant, except the firms of procedure
in cases of summary before a justice of the
peace, which we will publish uext week if we
can make room for them. This act is one of
general importance, and our readers would do
well to file this number of the paper iu order
to preserve it.
" 'We see it stated that a paper is to be es
tablished at Boston upon a capital of $50,-
000 for the purpose of advocating free trade.
We are not at all prepared to hear this. Tin
position of the two sections is bound to change
on tins question. Ten years hence the South
will be a unit in favor of a tariff for revenue
wiili incidental protection while the North
will generally favor free trade. A tariff for
revenue with incidental protection, would
be a fair compromise between those who for
merly favored a tariff for protection, and who
were for free trade and direct taxation. Snch
was tlie object of the Democratic platform ;
adopt' d at the New York C.uvention on the
4th of July last. The amount of fraud per
petrated iu the Internal Kevenns department,
under the present system of excises, has done
more to explode free traU ideas in the South
than all the arguments ever made against it.
