THE ELECTRO-MAGNETIC TELE
GRAPH. The Baltimore ratriot gives the following
very interesting accountof thc practical work
ingofthis telegraph. The almost absolute
anuihilation of time and space, in thc trans
mission of intclligcncc is astonishing, and
must Iead to thc most remarkable rcsulu :
Morse's Electro Magnctic Tclegraph, now
connects betwcen the Capitol at Washington
and thc Railroad Dcpot in Pratt, bctween
Charles and Light strcets, Baltimore. The
wires wcro brought in yestcrday from the
outer depot and attachcd to thc telegraphic
apparatus in a third story room in tbe depot
warehousc building. Tho hatteries wcre
charged this morning and thc Tclegraph put
in full opcration, convcying intelligeuce to
and from the Capitol. A large numbcr of
gentlcman wcre prcsent to see the opcrations
of this truly astonishing contrivancc. Many
admitted to the room had their names sent
down, and in lcss than a sccond the apparatus
in Baltimore was put in opcration by the at
tcndant in Washington, and bcfore thc lapse
of a half miuute the same names were re
turned plainly wriltcn. At half-past 11
o'clock, A. M. thequestion being asked here,
' what the news was at Washington J the an
swcr was almost mstantancously returncd
'Van Buren siock is rising' mcaning of
coursc that his cbances werc strengtbening to
reccive the nomina'tion on Monday next.
Tho time of day wasalso enquired for, when
the response was givcn from the Capitol
'forty-nine minutcs past eleven." At this
pcriod it was also asked how many persons
were spcctators to the Telegraphic experi
mcnts in Washington ? the answerwas 'six
teen.' After wbich a variety of namcs wcro
scnt up from Washington, some with their
compliments to their friends here, whosc
names had just bcen trausmitted to them.
Several items of private intelligcnce werc al
so transmittcd backwards and forwards, one
of wbich '-was aa ordcr to the agent here not
to pay a ccrtain bill. Here, bowever, the
clectric flnW proved too slow, for it had bccn
paid a few minutcs bcfore.
At half past 12 o'clock, the following was
sent to Washington, "Ask the reporterini
Congress to send a dcspatcb to tbe Baltimore j

It is, then, known what quantity of land

roots, will be grown from ycar to ycar, aud
tho amount of produce is subjcctto no uncer

aud tbe causcs being known, it is safe to ar

of inaccuracy. Thc modes and objects of
our husbandry, and all our mdustriaicmploy
mcnts, are incessantly fluctuating. New
sourccs ofproduction are opcningevery hour.
Thc amount of any givcn articlc produccd in
one year 6carcely furnishes ground fora plau

statcsman must throw down his pcn in dcs

I rcpcat tben, sir, with us all cxpcriment is
but aloap into the dark. Let us be content
with prcsent prosperity, and sufTer not our
selvcs to be bcwildcred by the fears of cvils,
which may he fancicd but cannot be fore

that, wbatcver the praclice of England may
bc, the teacbings of berpopularwritcrs tend
to the verv doctrines incnlcatcd by this rc-

dccd, so uncquivocally is the bill charactcr-
ized by uurclcnting hostility to American in
duslry, that it in gencral rcduccs thc dutics
imposcd by the tarifTof 1842 ou forcign maii
ufacturcs just in proportion tn thc nmonntof
foreign labor cxpcnded upon tbcm. Thi is
a point ofso great iniportancc that I dcsire to
draw to it the spccial attcntion of thc Com
mittee. By the tarifTof 1842, the highest du
tics wcre imposcd on those warcs iu v bich
the valuc of thc raw tnatcriul borc the Iowcst
propottiou to thc amount of the labor rc
quircd for their f.ibricntion, and so far thc
duty opcratcdas atax on forcign and abouuty
upon domcstic labor. Thc bill now under
considcration proposcs toabolishtbh just and
salutary discrimiuation, and in cfTect to give
a pscmium to the forcign laborcr. Thus, the
the duty on raw silk is rcduccd thrce and a
halfpcrccnt.; thc duty ou silk goods from
five to forly pcr cent. The duty on irou four
pcr ccut., 011 manufnctures of iron from four
to onc hundred aud scven pcr cent. Tbe du
ty on commonwool, thrce ccnts pci pouud,
on woolen goods from live to fifiy-scvcn pcr
cent. Thc duty on the simpler glass warcs,
onc pcr cent.; ifpartially cut, sixty-lo pcr
cent., if cut from one-third to one-half the
length, one hundred and lifty-six pcr ccut.,
and upon tbe larger sizcs of crown rIies two
hundred and thirtecn pcr cent. To what
priuciplc, but hostility to domcstic labor, can
we rcfera system of dutics which favors tbe
adinission of foreign warcs, in proportion ns
thcir value has been incrcascd by the cm
cmploymcnt of forcign capital and forcign la
bor? Thc avowcd principle of tbe bill, that,
