The tree Trade Movement,
On Wednesday last thirteen hun
dred of the most prominent citizens
of New. York issued a call for a mass
meeting to bo hold on the next evening
in the hall of the open Board of Bro
kers, to yrotest against the present un
just and intolerable tariff legislation of
the country, and to advocate a strictly
revenue measure. The signers of the
call were men of all professions, and
of both political parties. Could we
republish the list, which is headed by
Brown, Brothers & Co., and Duncan,
Sherman & Co., our readers would
see that it comprises an enormous pro
portion of the wealthiebt and most
iufluential citizens of the floancial
and political metropolis of the Conti
neut. This unanimity of sentiment
may be taken as a fair illustration of
thegodral opinion of the country on
a question which is now exciting
popular attention to an unusual de.
gree. 'The meeting was a most im
posing demonstration. Jackson S.
Schultz, Esq., presided, and among
the vice-presidents were such promi
neat gentlemen as Samuel J. Tidden,
John J. Cisco, Wilson G. Hunt, W.
B. Duncan, John Bigolow, Stewart
Brown, Henry Grinnoll, &c. Speech

H. Marshall, and a letter was receiv

industry," it has, in fact, fettered and
crippled the industrial energy of the
nation. It has destroyed the pros
perity of those great branches of
manufacture which were formerly en
gaged in the production of articles for
export to South America, the West
Indies, China and India; it has prov
ed ruinous equally to the wool-grower
and the manufacturer of woollen
goods; it has so Iocreased the cost of
iron, coal and raw materials as to im
pose needless and oppressive burdens
upon all Ameridan hidustry engaged
in manufactures; it has added enor -
mously to the expense of railroad
construction and transportation ; it
thus defrauds American labor by
needless obstruction to the exchange
of its products, and it adds to this
oppression by enhancing the price of
every article which the American la
borer may wish to purchase in 'ex
change for the products of his soil.
Reolved, That the present tariff
has destroyed our shipbuilding inter
este, while our unjust laws prevent
the American shipowner from coinpe
ting with the English, the French and
Germans in the ocean-carrying trade.
Our shipowners need no subsidies,
but they .have a right to ask for the
abolition of legislation which places
them at an irretrievablo disadvantage,
comoparred with their foteign rivals,
by preventing them from .purchasing
ships in the cheapest mnarhet.

Yesterday it was reported by tele

down the Charlotte, Columbia and
Augusta railroad, on his way to
Florida. Soon the report spread from
mouth to mouth, and by the time the
train was due, 5 .clock p. a., Col
umbia wos alive with the joyful
tidings. One and all were eager to
look again up on the noble featureo,
the commanding mien, of the mighty
champion of the South-the greatest
inan of the age. Thougi torrents of
rain had been falling all day, and oQn

coach, no that all might' see. The
noble hero stepped forth, and. was
greeted withstoh a shout of Joyous
recognition as no other living man of
the age could elicit, 'Shoqt after shout
arose, so that the introductory re;
marks by Col. Haskell; appropriate
to the ocoadon, were almost drowned.
"Our first in war and in peace" he
was styled, and upon this the excited
throng burst forth again into prolong

raised his hat and bowed, and re
mained for a minute or two with his
venerable bead -uucovered, then
quietly withdrew Inside the coaoh.
He was, evidentlyj deeply touched

PLEAsURE.-Soeiety is not, and
ought not to be, devoted to serious
concerns. The beneficent Creator of
the universe would not have adapted
human beings to the enjoyment of His
gifts unless He intended that they
should be enjoyed. With the law
which enjoins industry comes the- law
of fruition. Why should the eye be
formed to perceive natural and artifi
cial boAuty if it is not to be used for
that purpose I Why has the capacity
to make instruments capable of emit;
ting sweet sounds been given if such
sounds are not to be heard? Why
should the human structure be eapa
ble of the sweetest melody, and of
graceful action, and of the delightful
expreesion beaming from innocent and
heavenly eountenanees, if the pleas
are from such sources were forbidden
us? Why does the grape ripen, the
silk.wori, the annual fleece return,
the diamond sparkle, the marble yield
to the chisel, and the canvas catch
and preserve the inspiration of genius,

Louisville, Ky., the Southern manu.
facturers can now make yarn cheoper
than those North by Do. upon each
pound of manufactured cotton. Yarns
can be manufactured and delivered in
Europe at 41c. cheaper than the cot.
tin can be exported and manufactured
in Liverpool or. elsewhere. Thes<
statements are supported by fgures
and minute statistics as to the price
of wood, labor, cotton, and by actual
showing of books in different facto
ries. Au ordinary crop of cotton is
worth to the. South . $225. 000,000.
Were this-cotton crop, however, man.
ufactured.into yarn, it would give the
South $100,000,000 morb'of revenue.
As the matter now stands, the South
has only 199,772 spindles, where the
Northhas .5,848,477. Were the
whole crop manufactured here, it
wou,1'ay t!teiabotetg, ablefly wo
men and ohildren, $36)000,000. It
would pay this sum to theolass that
are ordinarily .non-producers. Spin.
ning is comparatively simple, and but
little Northern capital is invostcd In
this pritnary oeratiou. It is in the
odriiplioated labo- of waving, dyeing,
etc., that the heavy demand for copi
tal begins. Were these operations
performed, as they will be some day
the amount of wages paid and labor
ers employed would be immensely in
creaseda Col. Palmer's suggestion is
that the property holders and planters
of the South band together and occu
py the field with t'eir own factories
and s ladles. Once these are esta'
lished, his proposition is to ship direct
for Europe, and drive other yarns
from the market. The cost of a
spinnirg-toill, giving employ ment to
ejgby-seven operatives, and consum.
ing 887 bales, ought to be $50,000.
T~he esthnated not profits of such *a
factory, at Northern prices, would be
$117,748. The foregoing statisties are
