From the Baltimore American.
THE U. S. TREASURY REPORT;
. We sball Ivfer to-day. to tnaf portion
only of this document which relates to the
Tariff. The Secretary is a special plead
er, acute and ingeniouson particular points.
His scope of vision does not seem to cover
la large field atone view:, he looks at ob
jects in detail. His faculty of analysis
appears to he greater than his power of
combination. He uses a microscope well ;
hut a larger instrument would he rather
un wieldly in his hands.
-The basis of th Secretary's reasoningsi
aKainsi uie .protective system is stmptv
this: that protective duties operate, exclu
sively for the benefit of a particular class,
the manufacturers, and that they are con
sequently a tax upon the rest of the com
muiiity. If this position he sound there
may be deferulers .f tjie system, but we
are not or the number.
The position is not sound ; it is without
foundation; it is utterly fallacious. i
Let. us hear the Secretary state his as
sumed axiom. At least two thirds; of
the taxes," says the report, imposed hy
the present tariff are paid not into the trea
sury, but to the protected classes. The
revenue from imports last year exceeded
twenty-seven millions of dollars. This. in
itself, is a heavy tax; but the whole !tax
imposed upon the people hy the present
tariff is not less than eighty-one million of
dollars ot which twenty-seven millions
are paid to the government upon the im
ports, and htty-four millions to the protec
ted classes, in enhanced prices of similar
Again the same view is presented ; If
the Marshal," so runs the phraseology,
were sent by the federal government to
collect a direct tax upon thewhoIe people,
to be paid over to manufacturing capital
ists, to enable them to sustain their busi
ness, or realize a larger profit, it would
be the same in effect as the protective du
ty, which, when analyzed in its simplest
elements, and reduced to actual results, is
a mere surjsiraciion ot so much money
from the people, to increase the revenue
of the protected classes.
We are further told that the number
of manufacturing capitalists wjio derive
the benefit from the heavy taxesextracted
by the tariff from twenty millions of peo
ple, ooes not exceed ten thousand.
Against the protective system, then, as
thus defined, the Secretarv makes unre
lenting war. - He arrays himself as tht
advocate of the many against the few, of
the poor against the rich, of the laborer
against the employer ; and with such odds
of numbers on his side, if he only had sense
and justice and reason, he would be invin
cible. j$ -. y
Has the Secretary ever considered the
(.question how or why protective duties
hrst came to be laid in this country?
Were they established by the influence of
the manufacturing interest? There was
no such interest. When the first memo-
rial went from the city of Baltimore to theLte
First Congress," sfgned by mechanics andl b
artizans, asking for protection, did over
grown capitalists prompt the movement ?
Was G eorge Washington the dupe of a
moneyed few when he recommended en
couragement to domestic Industry and
signed the first hill extending protection
to manufactures ? Is no sentiment of pat
riotism, no principle of sound policy to be
imputed to Jefferson when he declared
that our manufacturers must be put side
by side with our farmers? Or in 1824
did General 'Jackson jspeak as the mouth
piece of monopolists, when he wrote to
I)r. Coleman that the best way to benefit
the agriculturist was to extend his home
j market by rearing up a manufacturing
population on our own soil 7
, No ; that patriotic teeliug. that senti
ment of independence, which prompted
t hestruggle, for political freedom in Seventy-six
gave rise to the first prganiza
tion of the policy of protection to Ameri
can industry. Ve were free in name on
ly Avhije the shackles of commercial sub
jugatipn hung around us. . What was the
lesson taught us by the warof 1812?
Let the tariff of 1816 answer. The wars
opt he French revolution and of Napoleon,
involving all Europe; had thrown a' large
carrying trade into our hands; our mea
sures of protection for home industry, suf-
ncieni io lnuicate ine policy, r.were yet
slight and imperfect, because -the condi
tion of the European world rendered fur
ther measures of that kind unecessary.-
But the experience of three years of - hos
ti lilies; -end ing in 1815, and the T cessation
of war in Europe, demonstrated in a man
ncr too forcible to be overlooked the true
policy of this Republic in that particular.

Mistaken interpreter of the public sen

of the American People. Your appeals
to social prejudices, to class jealousies, to
the pretended rivalry of interest the com
mon staple of demagogues on the build-
nigs win oe overpowed and hist in the
grand resounding tone which rises, as rise
it must, when the true patriotic chord in.
the heart of this nation is struck. The
time is at hand when the American Re
public must stand on a basis all its own,
and be sure of every part of it. It can

. .1 1
Europe : n musi journey aione on ine nign
road to its destiny. Let us then beware
of those dangerousalliances of trade which
would entangle us in the meshes of for
eign policy; which would establish our
workshops in Europe and render us de
pendent on foreign labor for articles of
daily use. which our own artizans and
manufacturers can furnish as well.
; But we need not refer merely to the ex
perience of our country which prompted
to the establishment of the protective pol
icy. We have had experience the other
way also. The beau ideal of Mr. Secre
tary Walker's fancy, the full consumma
tion of his theories and abstractions, has
been realized in all its beauty and excel
lence. .. Fortunate indeed I The indefati
gable zeal which prompted the restless
Secretary to collect information from all
quarters, except those where he could get
the best as to the probable consequences
01. ine oven n row -01 protection, may oe
gratified by a slight retrospect. All his
interrogatories sent through the post office
to all parts of the counlry, may find their
full answer in the annals of Mr. Van Bu
ren's administration.' What need of the
ones, doctrines, deductions when one can
have realities and facts ? Whence came
the prostration of the country during that
memorable epoch of low duties and free
importations ? What caused the indebt
edness of our merchants abroad to the a
mount of hundreds of millions for which
specie was drained from the country ?
How came the present national debt into
existence ? Why were the treasury notes
issued hy millicns to meet the expenses of
the Van Buren Administration ? How
happened it that drafts of the government
for inconsiderable sums lay unpaid and
dishonored because of an empty treasury ?
Look back to that period of humiliation
and shame, we beg of you, men in power,
and contemplate it well before you en
force measures to restore its abominable
features again. The same party now
holds the reins of government. Are they
not satisfied with having once destroyed
the national prosperity 1 Are they in love
with ruin? Mr. Walker says that the
wages of labor were not increased by the
tariff of 1842. Does he mean that asser
tion to -be believed ? Will he tell how
many laboring men there were, just be
fore the enactment of that tariff, without
any wages 1st all ?
When the secretary ararues mat me
rest of the community are taxed for the
benefit ot the manufacturers, to the ex-
ent which he pretends, his reasoning is
based on the assumption that the duty is
added to the price of the import and also
of its domestic rival. 1 his is a favorite
dogma of the Bundlecund" school of po
litical economists, and it might be a very
good one if facts did not contradict it a
misfortune which attaches to most of the
assumptions of that school. Instead of
adducing instances in which the above
maxim is not true we beg to know a sin
gle instance in which it is true. Do we
hear any complaint of the high prices ot
goods caused by the tariff ? Or is all the
nation, as Mr. ISarnwell Khett assured his
constituents they were I he most oppress
ed people under the sun, yet they did not
know if. The Secretary is kind to give
lectures on misery to awaken the people
to a knowledge of their own sufferings,
which he feels more keenly than they do.
He is like the eloquent lawyer who re
counted .the grievances of his client in
such touching words that the latter burst
into tears and declared that he had not
before known he was such a miserable
M The occasional fall in price," says
Mr. Walker, of some article after a ta
riff, is no proof that this was the effect of
the tariff, because, from improved machi
nery, diminished prices of the raw mate
rial, or other causes, prices may fall even
after a tariff, but ihey would in such ca
ses have fallen much more but for the ta
riff." , . ;
It might have occurred to Mr. Walker
that the fall in price of protected articles
not " occasional merely, but the natural
result of protection if he had considered
the true principle upon which our protec
tive system is (based. , That principle is
hot to build up artificial interests for the
benefit of monopolists ;.it is to build up
no interest ior wnica mere i in

ductions of the country, j It presumes a
confidence in native ingenuity and indus
try, that when the raw material is at hand
we shall he able in a short time to man
ufacture so well and so cheaply as to ren
der the protective duty no enhancement
of the price at all. That this result has
followed in many instances is known ev
ery, where except at the Treasury Depart
ments ,1 X.'
The Secretary affirms that the State
of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, if cultivated to
their fullest extent, i could, of themselves,
raise more than sufficient food to supplj'
the entire home market. Yet he would
have the manufacturers turned into far
mers. The exuberance of our agricultur
al productions is one - strong reason why
other pursuits should be encouraged. We
may get access to foreign markets in ca
ses of great scarcity abroad, but for the
most part our farmers have to rely upon
the home market. Even when England
imports flour, the Baltic countries, near at
hand, can supply her before we can- un
less there be a scarcity, as at present, in the
latter. But we have not rdom for farther

Though supported by the common judgment of

of France. M. d Bourqueney had signified
in an official note his intention to withdraw
himself to some distance from this capital, and
there await the further instructions of his Gov.
ernment, in case his demands were not com
plied with ;and as he was really on the point
of putting the threat (having received a third
refusal from the Porte) into execution, the' Min
isters of the Sultan consulted with Sir Si ration!
Canning and M. TetofT as to what was to be
done in this emergency. Both these Ambassa

of conduct the rorte bad pursued on ine ques

Porte could not hold out longer. The French
Ambassador, being thus Jully satisfied, agreed
to modify one of his demands. The Druse
