"Evcry duty is a protectivo, as

In either of these cascs, the protectiou to the

i iu tirae of peace, such a systera sbould not be

not stop to considcr that it would bc quitc as
well when it como to that point to have the
market gluttcd by homc compctition as by
the importations offoreign wool, which must
result in a double depressiou of pricc. Ilotv

when uuder the prescnt tarifT wool has risea
from 31 to 40 cculs duriug the year, and huy
ersare at thcir doors to purchase tbeirwool

IIc was willing to extcnd to tbe American

Was it not as strong encouragement as tbe
busincss would warrant, without inviting so
many to it as to overstock our markets, and
rcndcrthe protection uselss? forall would
see that, when they should bc corapelled to

thought this degree of protection would bct
tcr promote the interests of our wool-growers
than a bigher, or more prohibitory duty; be
cause it would he stable, the revenue bcing
necessary; and because, admitting a moder
