IND AN A STATE SENTINEL
The late message of President Fillmore, in the main,
is a very creditable State paper. It is a general review
of our foreign policy and domestic ff.nr. Mr. Fill-
more was the authAV of the onerous and oppressive ta
nil syst. m ol 142. which wa repealed in 1S-I6. The
. ... ... I
P. evident seems still t enteiiain strong sympathy for
his deceased banlling. ami recommends a return lo the
protective pdicy. This is whin doctrine, and as a whi"
President, such recommendations are very naturally to
to boked for. Any other view would argue a change
of i" '
Dcsirinc to uproot ihc present system, we are not b

d.,.,t .akes th famine year of 1S47 as the Use of his
calculations, when we exported sixty-eight millions, and
hows that during the l ist year we only exported ten-ly-one
millions, but he l.u bears to tell us that this tweu-ty-one
millions is lai above the average exportation of
brea.lst.ilfs dm ing the ici iod of high protection. Like
a lawyer, he rga. s oim; side of the question, instead of
tak.ng a broad, statesman like view of the whole sub-
He shows that the tailing off in the exportation of !
rice and tobacco exceeds one million In value as com
pared iah the I. r year. A fact accounted tor by the
shod supply and not by the diminution in price, for both

p. ices and q uck sa'es. Fioin these facts tl.e President
labors to p ove that the present n venue tariff has oper
ated unfavorably 10 the lannino int rests. Eveiy farmer
in the land has now an o.-cular demonstration of the ".
alsity of th -theory, that protection is beneficial to
riculture. Let him take the prie s of pork. beef, corn,
wheat and flour fr.-m 143 to H47. which was rhe peri-
ol of a lugh tariff, and compare them wil l the average
prices maintained on the same articles since 1347 under
the system of low duties, and the President is answered,

the first quarter of the present fiscal year, the amount ; sonable fanaticism for treason to my country is rebel
exported was fourteen millions; hence he infers that the ,OD i
amount for the present year will be the enormous sum
of fifty-eight millions. This is another pettifogging ar
gument unworthy the hi-ad of a great nation. Mr.
Fülmore well knows that according to all experience
drawn from the past, and by the fixed laws of trade and
cooimeice. when the crop lor the present year goes
forward lo market. th exportation i.fsi-eeie will cease,
if the current is not ch.mgcd in our favor. With our
heavy iarrign debts of States and corp. irat ions, this re-
suit must continue for v. ais. Our b.nds have lKen
sold in foreign markets and the interest must annually
be paid, tariff or no ta.iff. This debt, the teeming soil
of our rick va'leys, and the productive mines t.f Cali
fornia and Oregon will soon pay.
