THE OLD ORY.
Ir. Chairman, there is another
feature about the iron. indubtrics of
oul coun1try worthy of attention.
ion manutieturers never admit, that
a redouction of the Lairiff will injire
their in vestmen; they always awsort
that it will complotely destroy them.
A way back in 1785 the iron mam
facturers ot Pennsylvaida politioned
the Goi'oral -Ass-embly to rovent
te ipurtation ot foreign iron by at
roh ibitory tariff, "or there woulId
be a Lo:ail stoppage and destiuction
of that, very usetul and beneficial
manuIacture" in that province. From
that day to this the echo of that up
peal has been reverberating through
the'se halls, growing louder and
more p)otout as Lime rolls on- - A
few years ago. when the duty on
cotton tics was reduced from 70 to
35 per cent ad valorem, we were as
