PROTECTION AND PRICE OF
The Editor of the Patriotlabors lustily to
prove that the rtso in the price of wool is no
way attributable to the present tariff. It is
hard. even for this copyist of Amos Kendall
and the Globo to Uck against thc pricks. It
is indced a tremcndous tax upon his higcnu
ity, to show that the present tariff which dis
criminates nilh so much care between coarsc
wool and fine, in the duties on tho importa
tionof thelower gradcs, with a vicw of sub-
jecting allne wools coming in compctition
wilhourownto the highest ratc of duties,
should not have had any infiticnce in check
iug the introduction of SoulliAmerican wool.
That the importation of this staplc has dc
crcascd from 10 millions in 1642, to 4 3-4
millions in 1843, i3 a fact which cannot bc j
dcnied. Public documcnts prove it as sccn

But in these results, thc Patriot allows no
cfScacy to the Tariff, but ha3 not the ingenu-
ity to devise any other causo. This it lcaves
to conjccturc. Bnt wc would ask, if South
American wool costing 7 cents ,abrqad, and
paying but a few inills of duty, or the lo west
rate of duties, is such wool as the American
manufacturerwants, why in thename of won
dcr do not ourmanufacturcrs continue to im
portit, rather than give 40 cent3 for the do-
racsticfleecc as they have done since the pas-
sage of tho Tariff? Thetrutb isthissortof
coarse and burred wool is very little wanted.
and nevcr so much as to pay thc fifty and sev-
cnty-five pcr cent duty imposed upon it, and
which is nctnally paid, if theCoIlectorof New

eign wool used for ncgro clotbs, blaukcts,
ic. the less the duty the bctter. It does not
come in compctition with any which any sane
man in this country would wish to raise,
The difficulty with the cditof of the Pat
riot is, and ever has been that he Jays down
false premiscs, and of coursc his conclusions
are all delusive. AII South American wool
which comes at all in compctition with our
own, pays from 50 to 75 per cent. duty in-
stcad of 5 millsand no fino Europcan wool
can be sold in- our market at Icss than 45 cts.
per pound. It costs from 25 to 28 cents a
broad which, by the duties, the freight, insur-
ancc, commissions, mterest, and moderate
profit, is enhanced to 45 cents as the Iowejt
