We proceed now to show that the Democrat
' party, in the days when its name was not so point-,
s edlv contradictcd by its acts, was foremost in the
advocacy of Protection. It is a matter of nototi
ety that the Tariffs of 181b" and 1824 were im?
posed by a large majority of the Democratic votes
in Congress in opposition to a large majority of the
Federal votes. But let us come nearer homo:
The Tarnmany Party were originally the friends
of the cause we advocate. Even in this city, the
locus rif foreign influence, the Society of Tammany
in the days of her strength deliberately and openly
avowed the principles of Protection even to pro?
hibition, in October, l<i\'J, the Tammany Society
sent forth to the Public an Address drafted by a
Committee of Seven, which was twice distinctly
lead at two several weekly meetings, arid d?-!il>.
rati'lv considered and discussed at four several
weekly meetings previously duly notified]. It wa?
addressed not only to its own members, but to the
members of its several branches. The Country
was then suffering sorely under the effects of the
Last War, and the consequent influx of foreign
manufactures after the Peace. We quote from
this Address t
" As to the inundation of the country by foreign
goods, that ii a subject of wide magnitude a:.d
most nidienl interest to the American people. A
remedy for this evil would be precious as rubies to
him who values the institutions of Iii? country and
?.?lories in its indigenous greatness.''
" The remedy for all this is one most gratelul la
the American ear and neatest to the Amerii an
heart. It is the encouragement ol our own manu?
Another extract will show the remedy, and here
?s?, have it:
" The remedy against our being surcbai Tr,> I with
foreign goods and the means of introducing manu?
factures, is to forbid entirely the importation "i
articles which can be, mi any tolerable tern:--.
manufactured by ourselves."
La case of a deficiency is die Revenue, ihe Ad
" Let the Public Lands ?upply the deficiency.*'
Aftct combating the idea thut employment in
factories is unhealthy, and iceurring to the inde?
pendence it would secure, the Address goes on a*
"Another benefit, not among the least, would
be the exclusion of all foreign agent*, whetbet
Scotch, English, French or German. Tins species
of cormorant character holds in his hands the cap
ital of some man abroad who never intended lo
step his fool on our shores, and with this capital
extracts from the country its traffic on a perfi I
commercial equality with the American cili/.cn."
"As the United State* arc inhabited by mote
foreign agents than any nation on earth in propor?
tion to their population, it will appear, upon caleu
lation. that thi* is a very improvident modo ol
palling with the national treasure. Banish the
foreign goods as far us our manufactures under the
magnanimous raro ol Congress can brinish them,
and the visits of those vultures would soon cease
In their place would stand the poorest manufa tu
rer, receiving a fair profit for the fabrics ol bis
Commerce, it i? contended, would not essential?
" The commercial eupitul would shift to other
objects of direct ?r circuitous commerce not affect?
ed by manufactures, and mach increased by our be?
coming carriers; and a portion of our merchants,
who have been tossed on the precarious ocean ol
foreign commerce, might bugled of an oppottunity,
sanctioned by the pHtinnage of the government, ol
vesting their capital in manufacturing institu?
The rapid increase of out agricultural popula
tion, and the ample vent they would afford for out
mnnufiictnres, is also referred to. The perfect in?
dependence we might secure in war and peace?
our country, in the language of the usldtc--.
"seems to be in itself almost an epitome of thi
world." We conclude with one more quotation :?
"The warn of reciprocity, or rather the wise in?
ternal policy of other nations as to the rights ol
foreign agents, ihe aonsumption of foreign produc
tion, and the discouiagenient of foreign manufac
ture, are to us loud warnings to draw te ourselves
and cheiifh the indigenous strength with which
providence has blessed us."
These are some of the official doctrines, publish?
ed and circulated as correct by the Tammativ Se
eiety. It will no doubt be asked, why is it thai
this venerable Society has been represented by tiicu
of directly opposite principles i" We answer,
through the influence of British agents. William
Coleman, former editor of the Post, was notori?
ously all his life the advocate of British inteicst*.
Through his influence over the importing mer?
chants, mostly Whigs, C. C. Cambreleng, the lat<
Member of Congress, who had, by tliu aid of the
British interest, obtained a nomination, was elect?
ed. The importing interest went in a body foi
him, without which he could not have been elect?
ed with principle* *o directly opposed to ihe par;;,
which he was to represent. He has signally rc
paid lite importing interest of our city. The wholi
occupation of importers is now nearly extinct, am
by means of the policy which be advocated. I i?
was a native ot another State, a south era er in feel?
ing, and the sympathy uniformly manifested to?
wards the city to which he was indebted for all thi
distinction he lias ever attained, we leave hi* acts
To our knowledge, those principles liave nevei
been disavowed by the Tammany Society: the)
Hie now its recorded creed. With what face does
the young tyro in Democracy who wields the pci
of the Post denounce principles which the veterans
of ihe Society have made sacred I It cannot In
aaid that there is an excuse for the abandonment
ot these principles by these unfaithful servants ol
Tammany, for since the Address the cords ol
foreign rctiictioa against us have been drawn
closer and closer. The practical effects of the
Corn Laws?the Colonial Regulations?the mo?
nopoly of the direct trade by Great Britain, as
evidenced by the disappearance of nearlv even
American importing merchant?all show that thei'i
promise, of reciprocity have been wholly delusive
It now only lemainj to speak of the Conserva
lives, who, as far as we have observed, have been
generally on the side of American interests. With
the influence of a large majority of the three great
Faroe* of our Slate?with the combined interest
of all Last and West down to the Cotton States
bUrectij favoring a wholesoma protective law. it
remains to i> seen whether the exertions and
money of comparatively a handful of foreign
??vnts. seconded by tb? Niillificrs, are destined
to keep us tributary and in a worse condition than
when we were Colonies. Are we to continue
our open ports when the staple commodity?the
Grain?of ibree-fourths uf the L'aion is excluded ?
Ar" we to continue to be amused with imported
free trade homilies until every Bank in our countrv
is bank: apt. and our Currency utterly annihilated !

'. day week, and the Message of Gov. Bigger was
: delivered on the following day. He states that
the aggregate length of all the lines of Internal
Improvement-in the State is 1291 miles, and the
I estimated cost of the same $19,914,424. Up to
I this time only 231 miles have been completed, at
: an aggregate cost of $3,164.628. And yet the
; State i- now involved in debt to the amount oi
$15,088,146 i The excess has been created by
borrowing to pay interest, and by selling the bonds
of the State to those w ho have not paid for them,
or entrusting them to unfaithful agents. The
'suspended' debt thus due the State from the
Mortis Canal Company is $2,146,000 : from othet
Companies $894,000; property taken from the
Cohens $341,000: in all $3,331,000, which is
pretty nearly a dead loss. The annual interest
which must be paid by the State amounts tc
$615,000. This heavy liability, the Governoi
says, the State is unable to meet at present. Het
revenue for the current year is estimated al
$459 884 : and her ordinary expenditures tor ne\i
I year at only $92,750. We are confident she wili
work out yet: but she ought to lay on the taxes ai
once, and pay her interest promptly.
ARKANSAS is prubablv about to follow the lead

the N. Am. Trust lias gone out: th?' Real Estate
Bank and the State of Arkansas refuse to pal
either principal or interest, nlledging in bar the
frauds of their agent, the N. Am. Trust! Ol
course, if this ground be tenable, no paper security
can ever be considered safe or negotiable. His

MuTLSl and Mtrder.?The New Orleans pa?
pers of the -ith contain the following account of a
revolt of Slaves at Sea: it is said tkat the partics
iir- are confirmed by the commander of the ves?
sel. The brig Creole. Capl. Enson. from Rich"
morrd :o New Orleans, wiih tobacco, 13j Siaves
ar.d several passengers, was seized on the 7tii ult
by die Slaves, who killed and wounded stveral of
the whites in the contest. It appears that at about
! 9^ P. M. after the passengers and crew had re
; tired, the Slaves mutinied and murdered a passen?
ger named Heweil, owner of part of the Neerees:
They wounded the captain and ene of the
; hands dangerously, the chief mat eand another of
, the hands severely. But littue defence could be
? made, as the victims were totallv unprepared tor
an attack, and hod bot one musket on board, while
the slaves were armed with pistols, knives and
; bluigee-ns made by cutting up handspikes. There
is reason to behave that the whole plot was ar
I ranged before they left Richmond, Having ob
i tained possession ot the vessel, they broke open the
I trunks and ransacked the whole cargo. They
spared the lives of ths mate, passengers and a
part of the crew, on condition they should be taket
immediately to Abaco. an English island. Forced
to ober, the crew set sail and arrived at Nassau.

On landing, a guaid was placed *vn board the
vessel bv the Governor of New Providence, a: the
request of tho English Consul, to prevent the
slaves from going ashore; and upon an investiga?
tion, nineteen slaves were identified as having par?
ticipated in the murder. These were placed in
confinement until further orders, the Governor re?
fusing to send them to America. The remainder
were ->'t tree.
The Report of the Slcretart of the
Nsvy.?This document, which we receive this
morning, is very long and elaborate. It occupies
above seven columns of the Intelligencer, and
gives a full and detailed account of the cendtiion
? t" o;:r Navy and many suggestion* and recom?
mendations as to its increase, Of course we can ]
say but little concerning it to-day t we shall merely j
note some of its- prominent point*.
The Secretary recommends an increase of the
vessels employed in suppressing the slave trade on
the Coast af Africa.?the revision of the law- and
regulations of the service.?the reorganization of
the Navy Department by increasing the nuaaier t.t
clerks and in other ways, and the rapid increase ot
the Navy as fast its mean-will aimit. With refer?
ence to this latter recommendation we make from
the report the following interesting extract:
A war between the United States and any con?
siderable maritime Power would not be conducted
at ttiis dav as it would have been even twenty years
ago. It would be a war of incursions, aiming at
revolution. The tits: blow would be struck at us
through our institutions. No nation, it is presumed,
would expect to be successful ov>r us tor any
length of time, in a tuir contest of arms upon r-ar
own soil t ami no wise nation would attempt it.?
A more promising expedient would be so iitht. in
arraying what are supposed to be the hostile elc- ;
menu of ?cr soc:hI system against on" another.?
An enemy so disposed, and tree to land upon any
part of our soil which might promise success to
nis enterprise, would be armed with a four-fold
power of annoyance. Of the ultimate result of
?.uch incursions, we have ao reason to be afraid;
but, even in the best event, war upon our own soil
woul i be the mote expensive, the more embari
sins, and the more horrible in its effects, by com?
pelling us at the sam-- time to oppose an enemy in
the field and to guard against attempts to subvett
' our s'-cittl -ystems.
Heretofore we have found tn the shnl'iowness
of many of our waters security, to a certain
extent, ag-tinst invasion by sea. So long as ttia-t
time war- were conducted in vessels of large size
and great draught we had little to apprehend from
? them axsept at a few point-, and these were sus?
ceptible of adequate defence on land But this -e
eumy can no longer be relied on. The application
of steam pow er to vessels of w ar, und the improve?
ments which have recently been made in artillery,
are destined to change the whole system of mari?
time war. Stenmboutsof light draught, and which
may ea-ily be transported across the ocean in ves?
sels of a larger class, may invade us at almost any
poii.t of our extended coast, may penevate the in?
terim through our shallow rivets, and thus e\p"-e
half our country to hostile attacks. The celerity
with which these movements could be made, the
facility with which they could change the point of
attack, would enable an enemy, with a compara?
tively small feree. to harrtss our whole seaboard,
and to cany all the horrors of w ar into the secure
retreats of our people. The effect of these incur?
sions would be terrible everywhere, but in the
southern portion of oar country they might, and
probably would, be disastrous in the extreme.
It is obvious that a war thus conducted must be
successful to a very great extent, in spite eiiall the
defences on land which we could contrive. Nothing
less than the conversion of half our country into a
militaty garrison could protect us against it. Such
is the exposed condition of oar country, such is the
character of our institutions, and -uch the position
of our people, that a population of tw ice our pre?
sent number, under tho best possible military or?
ganization, would avail us but little. Whilst the
combined Powers of the world could not subdue
us, even a secondary naval Power could avoid mir
land defences, set our armies at defiance, and pro?
secute against u? a war intolerably harresting and
The single question, then, which we have to de?
cide, in reference to this subject, is. where Hud bv
whom shall those buttles be fought, which may
hereafter become necessary in defence of our pro?
perty, our institutions, our honoi, and our lives.'
Shall we meet the enemy upoH the ocean, with
men trainod and disciplined for the contest, or -ut?
ter him to hind upon our shores, trusting to a scat?
tered and harassed people to expel hirn from their
farms and their fuesides .' This question udrnits
of but one answer. But it is worse than i.lle to
suppose that all those high interests to which 1
have alluded can be adequately protected by our
present naval force. Four thousand mdes of ex?
posed sea and lake coast, a foreign commerce scat?
tered through the most distant seas, and tt domes?
tic trade exposed alike upon the ocean and upon
our interior water,, are, it. effect, surrendered to
tfie enemy, when they are entrusted to the ?protec?
tion of some tw enty ships in commission.
If these views bo not altogether deceptive, the
policy of increasing eur Navy, without further de?
lay, is obvious. How far it shall be increased, the
wisdom of Congress will decide. Looking to it as
the chief, if not the only adequate defence of our
cwumry against those wars of incursion from which
so much evil is to be apprehended, I respectfully
suggest that we cannot safely stop short s?f half the
naval force of the strongest maritime Power in the
woild. Our policy is peace, and we do net pro
nose to ourselves a war of aggression in any en*'.
except so far as may Be necessary as a measure of
defence. It is not probable that any nation could
detach from other service more than one-fourth of
its whole navai force, to attack us upon our ow n
coast; so that, after deducting such pan. of our
force as we could not employ ut all, aad such part
j as we should be compelled to employ elsewhere,
we might reasonably hope to repel from our shores
any maritimo Power, with only half its force in
?hips. With less than this, our fleets would serve
only to swell the triumphs and feed the cupidity of
our enemy. It is better to have none at ail than to
have less than enough. I am aware that this great
increase of our naval power cannot be effected in
any short lime. I propose it only as the object at
which our policy ought to aim. and towards the
attainment of which your measures ought to be
steadily directed. An annual appropriation, as
iiberal a* the mean* of the Treasury will in a few
years accomplish all that is desirable.
Tte Secretary thinks that no new l.ae ot" battle?
ships are needed, but recommends a large ad?
dition to our frigates of the first class. Ho urges
also the establishment of higher grades in the
service, and the creation of the rank of Admiral.
The Marine Corps, he thinks, should also h*i in?
creased. He suggests the propriety of estabiish
! ing a Naval School?of revising the laws for the
' government ot" the Marine Corps, and asks appro?
priation* to support tie Squadrons.
