certain that Brazil may not soon be
added to the number.
"Such an unparalleled succession
of untoward events is indeed menac
ing to our manufactures and foreign
commerce, and demands the anxious
Attention of Government. '
It is proper to observe oh tins' re
markable series of hostile tariffs, thnt
they bear no evidence of confedera
cy against us. Te only exception
is in regard io France and Uclgium,
where the feebler power obeys the
orders of the stronger. ' Russia,
France, Belgium, United States, Ger
many, and even in some degree Por
tugal, have been influenced by'a'de
sire to protect their own manufac
tures. The United States and Por
tugal have been additionally moved
by the hope of relieving their finan
cial embarrassments; though the plan
has certainly not succeeded in Por
tugal, and is not l.kely to succeed in
America. Brazil acts in a spirit of
retaliation for the prohibitory duties
imposed in this country on her su
gar." What has befallen England, w ill
unqucstiojably happrn to the Uni
ted States. Already France begins
to talk of retaliating upon us for
shutting out her silks from our ports.
Other nations (as we may understand
from the statements in the extract
we have given) are ' not too wise to
follow the example we have set'them,
and attempt to cut off the remaining
branches of our -commerce, at the
