of Wejbridpc Vu" wluch could not be bea

HOW THE Y LOVE THE TARIFF.
Van Buren himself in a lctter to thc Rich
mond whig, has openly avowed his hostility
to the prescnt tariff in principle and detail.
The Globe, Richmond Enquirer New York
Post and other organs of the magician never
issue without furious attacks upon its princi
ples and misrcprescntation of ils priuciplcs
and effects. Calhoun and his partizans are
equally vociferous in their assajts upon it.and
British capitalists have rccently aided Dufl
Green an uncompromising partizan of Cal
houn in cstablishing a Frcc .trade press in
the city of New York. With some excp
tions of membcrs in congress from Pennsyl
vania and New-York who dare not repudiate
it.evcry branch of thc loco partyin the Union,
are signalizing their zeal against thctariff,and
we trust will soon succccd in convincing the
people of their cordial hatrcd of this abomi
nable whig mcasurc. Even in Vermont Ioco
focos leaders and prints, aliho they assuine
the garb of friendship for a tarifT which is
daily enriching the people, and euhancing the
value of every mans labor in community, by
disengenuous attacks upon it in detail, are
cndcavoring to rendcr it odious and unpopu
lar. A latc number of the Globe denouncesthe
tarifl" with morc than ordinary bitterness,
charactcrizing it as an cnormoitsly opprcsshe
concern, a hontd Clay mcasure, by which as
one of its corrcspondcnts asserts, betwecn the
"Kr.ates of ihe mills on the one side cnd tlie
Knaves of congress on the oOitr, the people are
Jletced andpeeled most unmcrcifully. In the
same papcr the Globe lauds with most hearty
good will the late speech of Mr. McDuflce
against the tarifT, fillcd with the most falla
cions rcasouiugs, and dcclaring if'uujustin
iquitous and oppressive withfalsehood stamp
cd upon its face."
The cvidencc of hostility to protection,and
a determination to repudiate the prescnt ta
rifT, is as strongly niauifcstcd by the follow
crs of Van Buren aud Wright in the legisla
ture of Ncw-Yotk, as it has bcen by the
northern man with southcrn principles him
self. Wc annex a skctch of a reccut debatc
in this body. Scvcral olhcr locos besidcs
those whosc spccchcs wc havc givcn in part,
took the same grounds. The question was
the policy of rclying solcly upon a tariff for
the support of thc govcrnment in timo of
pcace, v.hkh whcn lested by the ycas and
nays was distinctly condemncd by the major
ity, and by a strict party vote. We have ad
dcd an cxtract from the sjitcch of Mr. Lee,
whig to show the faliacy of Iheir arguments
Mr. Johnson (Loco) procccdcdtorcply to
Mr. Hard's strictures upon thc Governor's
Mcssagc for omitting all allusinn to the Ta
ilT. Mr. J. could not scc any force iu thear
guineut that the Uuited Statcs ehould adopt
a l'roteetirc Tariff bccause England, France
aud other couutries with which wc trade had
dore so. Hc refcrred to the cxample of
Eugland to prove the mischief of a Tarifl"
systcui. Hc contcnded that the TarifT was
a ta iniposcd upon the many to enrich the
few. It had becn said, iudecd, that our du
mcstic manufacturies, which were protectcd
by thc opcnition of thc TarifT, gave employ
mcnt to thousands of our citizcns. Well, it
was beggarly cmploynient at the bcst, and
jiot given lo the opsrativc for his 6akc, but
for the bcnefit of his rich emplojcr. Auy
one with half an cyo could sce that this Ta
rilT was designcd to fostcr thc rich iiianufac
turer. All the children in the strects who
mnnched gingcr bread orsuckcd candy,were
taxcd to support the sugar rcfiners- The
hard carnings of thc poor wcrc takcn from
ihem by this TarilT, and transpoi trd to thc
pockcts of the wealthy capitalist. It was' an
unequal tax an unjust one rcpugnant to
thc laws of God and nature and in violation
of the Constitution itself, whichdeclarcd that
all mcn were "frcc and cqual." He protest
cd again"t it. It was coutrary to natural law
and uatural risht, and the crcat objcct of it
was to eicvate Hcnry Clay, " the mill boy of
thc Slashes." to the I'residential chair. Bnt,
said Mr. J., it will prove a dclusive hope.
Mr. Davezac loco said in rclation to the
challengc made to his party to come out aud
show thcr hands on thc question of protec
tion. that he thought hcliad sufliciently de
fined his posttion. "I," said he, "long since
hoistcd my frec trade flag, and I will never
pull it down."
Mr. D. urgcd that as England 1iad mani
festcd a disposition to mect us half way, that
wc should not repulse the cun of friendship.
Mr. D. Lce whig said thc genlleman had
spokcn feciingly of the disposition manifest
ed to repulse the cup of friendship ofl'cred to
us by Eugland. He (Mr. L.) only wishcd to
state two plain, simple facts, to illustrate the
value of this cup of friendship. By returns
made to the nroner Dcpartments, and pub-
lished, it appeared that upon $100,000,000 of
cxportsortheprouuctsoi imcncan inausiry,
forcign nations imposed a tax of 8127,600,
000 or l27perceut. During the same t'une,
upon about 100,000,000 of imports, there
were levied undcr our "caormously high"
Protective Tariff, the sum or SIB.UW.UW,
oronly 18 per cent! Admirable friendship
Again, he would cite another "instance of
the remarkable friendship manifestcd towards
! us by Grcat Britain. Upon about $4,000,000
! value of tobacco, which we export, Great
j Britain collccts a tax of $37,000,000! The
' gentleman referred to exports of our Flour,
our Wheat, our Cheesc, kc. He (Mr. L.)
would inlorm lnm tbat during the last scason
1,000 000 pounds of fresh bultcr were landed
at the port of Buflalo. and he had frequently
purchased for his own use thc bcst of table
buttcr for G ccnts per pound. But yet that
same nuality of butter was selling in Livcr-
pool for 22 cents per pound. One and a half
cent per pnund, or acostof 7 1-2 cents, would
have nlaced this buttcr in Livetpool. Whence
then thc higb price at thc latter place? Be
cause Great Britain in her great liberality and
friendship sees fit to impose a tax of 1G ccnts
nnnnd brousht from this country!
Durins the last season, 24,000.000 lbs. of

Great Britain should throw open her ports to
receive this article free. How much taibute
would the Erie canal receive from this article
None at all.
Vcsscls of 500 tons burthen could load at
Buflalo, pass through the Welland canal to
any part of thc world and return the same
way without payine one cent tribute eitherto
the city of New York or the Erie canal. Let
gentlemen dccide how much richer the State
would be by the adoption of the free trade
