that he put on h:s locomotive tacks and

of Paris, the Sheep Pegs of London, oi
the Circassian Bazaar of Constantino

American habits, could not imagine
that an unattended lady might be re-
spectable, for they had taken Paris as

she flies in despair to her husband's

now appears in the drama, and though
a short man, was full of spirit and well
knit in his frame, and ready to do the
thing needful. He accordingly ' vert
leisurely fastens to the door, and tells
the intruder to prepare for punishment.
Fisticuffs are resorted to; the tall man
was levelled to the floor. A good cow

in the establishment to asist, the offend

This beiug conceded, as from the obvi

interest and policy of the State to fos
ter and encourage a direct foreign im
Pursuinz this inquiry, it i. in the
first place, to be remat ked that Virginia
has a large export tra Je, large when
compared with the aggregate export of
all the States. Her exports for three
year ending with December, 183r,
averaged 35,265,461. This, ol course,
gave her that amount of foreign rapi
tal, ready to be employed in whatso
ever mode that was profitable. Vet,
whilst she had it in her power, through
the medium of her exports, to obtain
,tiirtv ami at a oil.iro.l rnst !.
foreign productions d
emandrd by her
se of trade hither-
consumption, the course
to hasbcen to-b.ain those productions '
in northern .cities, thereby receiv.ne
them through a circuitous channel anil
at an enhanced cost. The average
import for the period just referred to,
has been less tltsn one seventh of her
exports; and assuming that the differ
ence between those two amounts has
been expended in procuring at the
north thuse foreign supplies, which her
exports would have enabled her to pro
cure directly from abroad, and assuming
further that the augmented cost of the
former operation is equal tu fifteen per
centum, and we detect an annual loss
.1 n.AA wtrt I .
of about R700.000 incurred by -the
State from her neglect if the" import
trade. Hut that sum is far below the
actual annual loss for fifteen per cent
um is an under estimate of the addi
tion to. the
supplies coming through (he indirect
channel referred to, and the sum assum
ed to be inveited in those supplies, is
below the actual amount. The loss to
the consumer of foreign supplies, so
obtained, is equal at least to fifteen per
cent, upon the amount of his purchases.
Now if any thing be needed to rouse
the citizens of our State from the su
pineness which could overlook so enor
mous a tax upon its industry snd re
sources, or reconcile them to it, it
would seem to be the consideration
that it is with their own sterling money
the importation is made, which they
submit to receive at second hand at an
ruinous a sacrifice. Again the tonnaee
