The Tar Adt.-We publishes last week.
the Tariff Act, which is now the law -of the
-land. This is a mitterlofsincere congratula
tion, andI one for which al who so long'battled
in. the eause.o- Free Trade.. have just reason
'to rejoice. It is the triumph of the great prin
ciples of,.iberty and equality over grasping

For a long terms of .years, tho South groaned

were failing them, and grew sink Ciomi "hope

certain period,- crissseetued -iihpentling over
our beloved country. .A gloom had gathered
upon every brow, at.l "hope for -beason bade
the South farewell."
Some of our best and purest men''had esuthe
to the mournful ct nclusion, thamt a ieparation
of the Southern from the Northern State-s, wvas
-preferable to Union with them, if the late
Tariff~-'vith its 'aetislity, and its oppression
were to continue the settled policy of ihe conn
try. But the hour of deliverance came at lihtt
and the banner-of Free T~ade is once more
floating triumphantly aloft. To our Chief Mag.
istrate, to the Vice President, and the other no
ble spirits who stood should >r to sh -ulder in
battling for our interests, we owe a de bt of the
-most heattfelt gratitude, and they will surely
receive their reward at the hands of their
We have said that great points have been
gained in the passage of the prcsent Tariff.
;We have reference to the abolition of the min
imum and spe,:ific dutiws. In order that those
of our reat'ers who have not particularly at.
tended to the matte', may have a clear appre
hensiona of it, we will repeat what we said in
-a former number.
"The abolition of the .minimum principle.
by which low priced goeds -have an arbit-rary
value txed on thorn by government. of four
- times their value, and taxted acordingly, and
the abolition a'so, of all specific dinnes, -by
which a tax is levied on an article, not acltord
ing toits valuie,-but with an exclusive reference
to the home interest to be protected, are great
p ,ints te be gained in the legislation -ot the
-country. At-lies beena by means of these frand
ulent modes ef-taxatieni, that our country has
been kept ignorant, to a great extent-, of the
oppression that has been perpetrated uipon us,
-for the last tweoty years. There can be nio effi
cient tariff for .protection without mi'nirnm
and specific daities."
We think-it notimplroper, on the presenlt oc
casion, to <quote an extract froim the ap'eash of
the Hoa.-D.-H. Lewis, upon the Revenue biell,
as we find it reported i the Newv York Globe.
On the subject of ad varlorem duties, Mfr.
"Ad valorem duties always bear the same
proportion to the cost f .the imported article ;
but a special duty of se muclh per pound or
yard, waseometimes a fourth sometimes a half
of the vilie( that article, ats its price fluctua

goods were cotinusdly declining in price from

that business were rascals. But--the great ob
jection'to specific duties were.:that it fell the
most heavily on the poor. The present tariff
duties on flannel, for instance, were specific
say 12 cents on a square yard.: A poor person
uses flannel that cost abroad say 30 cents per
yard-the duty is the same as on the flannel
that cost G0 cents, which the.rich consne.
The poor man's tax is 40 per cent. on the value

The enactment of the present Tariff teaclher
us the important lesson of patience and.for

The Slares oftetfeon. Joln Randolph.-T ho
people ofthat portion of Ohio. where the moan'
umitted slaves of John Randolph had intended
to settle. -rose up against them, and had not,
at the last date, permitted them to reside a

had been shamefully swindled out of nearly
all they possessed'in Ohio. and in all probabil

Newspaper in Oregon.-The first newspaper
commenced in Oregon has been received at
the office of the St. Louis leveille. It is lated
February 5th, 1846. Its motto is "Vestward
the tar of'Empire wends its way." It contains
a -copy of the Constitution, passed by the legis
lature of the Territory. Also an act to prevent
the introduction and sale of ardent spirits in
Oregon. The editor is Democratic, but says,
that his paper will be -neutral in polities, and
devoted to the.general interest of the Territory.
For the A drerlisr.
Mr. EIrna-As a report has gone
abroad over a portion ofthis District, which
I think is calculated to injure the election
of DA.xtEL HOLLAsn, Esq.. saying that I
should havesaid, that I had heard Holland
say. :that. hewas-in favor of a Poll Tax, I
'feel it a duty which I owo to Mr. Ilol'
lanti, and myself, to state to the public the
origin of the said report.
The report grew out of a conversation
that took place between myself, and Da
niel Mtheny, Seur.. in which we were
speakirgg:of,4he c.auidayl&sWeu .imn-,
thonghtfully-(withou' explaining myself to
him, as I might have done,) said Hollain
was in'favor of a Poll Tax, when he re
pliet .howr do you know ? I answered, I
thought that I heard him. say so ; well.
said he, if he is. he has lost one vote, a. I
(he) i3tended .voting for him. I then sta
ted thIt I was not positive enough, to say
for~certaie. that I ever had heard Iolland
say, that he was in favor of n Poll Tax.
What gave rise to my saying so. was a
conversatin that took place bsetween me
and Mr. Holland. concerning the proprie
ty of taxing retad hands, to kecp tup the
roads, ins-end of wrorking them, to which
I thought Mr. Holland assenwrd, but I in
tended no illusion to a State Poldl Tax.

dicatiotns of another chai~nge in the.BIrit

the markets evinces the sense of iniste
rial instability which pervades the -com
mnercial cotmmunity itn Englaind. It is ev
ident thattihe continuance of Lord Johno
Russ'ell's rule hinges on a single question,
the Sugar duties, anid it is also evident
that he has to encounoter a formidable op.
position froin the fragments of parties
which have now united, and ivhich rarely
coalesce. The anti-slavery party, of tot hi
the free trade and protect ionist divisionh,
have avowed their itentiont to resist the
equailization of the Sugar duties, andI, al
though there is an obvious absurdity in: the
discrimination, it is clung to fur some pur
pose which is inscruitable to a distant ob
server. Parliamentary action on the bill
was post poned to the 27th tilt , andi we

Adjournment of Congress.-Both How
--s of Congress adjourned on Monday
tier, at 12 o'clock. the day designated by
he joint resolution of the 16tb ult . being
the Iongest and most eventful session in
. history of the Government. The two
most important acts of the session have
been to close, by a treaty, a boundary dis
pote, which was ready to ripen into war,
and by enlarging, through a reduction of
the tariff, the limits of commercial inter
course with foreign countries, to strength
en the securities of peace. A largo amount
of necessary business has been left undone.
Some of the party and personal squabbles
which have occurred certainly do not
adorn our parliamentary annals. But on
the whole. the public good which has been
accomplished far outweighs the evils of a
protracted and expensive session.- 'has.
Even. News. 121/h inst.
Important Arrests.-For some time past
the ci:izens of our town and the-surroun
ding country have been somewhat excited.
owing to the disappearing of several
negroes. and vague information received
from other negroes who had been tampered
with by some white men. A few days
ago a white man was apprehended in
Cheraw, and subsequently, upon his con
fessions and other circumstances, another
white man was apprehended in Marlho
rough District. Both of them have been
committed to jail on charges of decoying
and stealing negroes. So far as circum
stances and the direct evidence already
before the minds ofthe community go, we
are led to believe that a nest of Murrell
men has been discovered, and our citizens
saved from further depredations, at least
for a time. Great exertions were made by
several of the citizens of this town and
some gentlemen of Marlborough District,
to detect some of the leaders in this nefarious
husiness. and their efforts have been
crowned with great success. In addition
to the too white men above alluded to
two negroes were arrested and comm;tted
to yil, not, however, upon ray charge
against them, but as witnesses against.a
negro, named Arthur, who is said to belong
to the gang of land pirates, and an agent
in decoying others. It is said that Arutur
hias gone to Guilford county. (N.-C.jwith'
ties fero meh'anid a'womadt;t'stilen frm
Marlborough District, placed under his
charge. and that he has a pass to convey
them off. The negro woman belongs to
Charles Irb.v and one of the negro men
to .luseph Dixon, of Marlborough Di.'
trict. -It will be well for the people of
Randolph and Guilftrd to keep a look out
for these negroes.
Believing that the actors in this piracy
are norse than abolitionists, as they steal
to selI for eain, and har the countr -y and
this nei:;hborhood int particuhar, have at
least for a time got rid of a scourge, a
