lt is fully acknowledged that all dutfcsUiould bc

licccssarv for an cconomical administration of
thc Government. But wilhin these limits,
and as incidentalto thc raising ofsuchreve

and Lcttcr prcparcdif forcign war should
conic upon us. Thc principlc of discrimina
tion has obtaincd from the period of thc fouu
i!al:on of thc Government. In many cases
it tnay bc found to bc indispcnsablc to
thc iiitcrcsts of thc rcvcnuc, if in fixing a
systeni of duties it it consUts with lhe
truc pohcy ofthc country so to apportion
them among thc various spccics of imports as
to favor our own manufacturcs at thesamc
limc that tlic rcvcnuc itsclf is bcnefittcd, and
noinjusticc done toany. it would sccm propcr
-and wiso to rcject nrbitrary limits and thc idca
of a forccd and unnatural uniformity.
Thc undersigned feclt no difFicdty in ad

bc a ratc sufficicnly liighfor tlic bcncfit ofthc
rcvcnuc and also aflbrd rcasonable encourage
mcr.t to home producers of the articlcs. As lo
lhoe, thercfore, the object of the act of 1S33
will bc accomplished, if its provision for home
i-alualiou bc carried out by Congrcss. But ho
still supposcs that there arcseveral descriptions
ot imoried manufactures and producc, which
would well bcar a higher duty tlnn twcniy pcr
rent. upon thc home valuc, and thus yicld n
grcater revenue, to tho Government, white, in
regard to somc of thcir., it will bc found thal,
wilhout such incrcased duty, thc labor oflarge
classcs, engagcd in producing similar artic'cs,
will be greatly deprcsscrf, if not cntirely sun
nlautcd. It is niiqucstionably true. anu well worthy of
inmarl;, that tlic act 1833 uas avowedly con
