' -Th? fads of the affair of iheflringofa
Spanish Government ship npon the Florida on
the high seas, are ?aid to be substantially
these: "After the Florida had sailed from St.
Thomas, a Spanish man-of-war followed and
fired? blank cartridge at her. The Florida j
continued on her way, and the man-of-war
then fired a ball cartridge. The Florida was |
then stopped and a boat sent from the Vasco
Nunez de I lal bo?, the officer in charge having
orders to examine the Florida's papers. As
no fault was found with the papers, the Flori?
da was allowed to proceed on her voyage."
It,la believed,that if this act.was, dont? by the
order of Spain, or - ls upheld by^heiy whjen
brought to her notice grave consequences may
eDsue. The probability is, however, that she j
will disclaim ail responsibility for it. The rule
ls that ootslde^the. marine jurisdiction there,
can be no forcible vlsitlng on the high seas by
one nation of the vessels of another in time of I
peace for any sort of inquiry. This well-un?
derstood principle of international law bas!
boon so often vindicated by this country that
Spain can scarcely be expected to violate lt In j
the present instance with impunity.
..-Krupp's great Iron works at Ewen, Ger?

ing forty tons hare been made several times I
In these works, and (en arid twelve-ton blocks
are every-day sights; There are' forty-nine j
.hammers in the works, of which four or five '
are twenty-five tons, three or four fifteen tons,
and a large number five and ten tons. The
greatest of all the hammers ls a wonder, and
cost five hundred thousand dollars. Its founda?
tions are one hundred feet deep, consisting of
three tl em-the first constructed of solid, ma?
sonry, the second of tbe heaviest and stoutest
oaks to be found In all Germany, and the third
of cylindrical segments of cast iron upon which
the anvil block rests. The bead of the ham?
mer weighs fifty tons. Its face ls of steel, and

while It was molten, cast iron was poured-into
lt from tbe back. Everything th at belongs to
lt, and to the engine that operates it, is in
^duplicate and triplicate. Four steam cranes
serve It, and these are each tested to bear two
hundred tons, and are intended to bear forty
ton ingots, which are the largest cast. In
1866 sixty-one thousand tons of steel were
turned out from these works.
* -Lowrey and his gang of outlaws continue
to rule .Robeson County, North Carolina, un?
disturbed. The fruitless campaign waged
against them by the State and Federal troops
. only served to render the desperadoes more
desperate and daring. A correspondent who.
paid a visit to the locality recently found the
inhabitants in such a condition of abject fear
that they, with one or two exceptions, absolutely
refused to converse on the subject of the out?
laws', and thereby risk their lives. The cor?
respondent, by dint of considerable Ingenuity,
managed to extraot a few statements from the
wretched citizens. They told him that, on
some occasion?, Lowrey and his men had
waylaid passenger trains at the smaller sta?
tions, armed to the teeth, and abundantly pre?
pared to engage in combat'with thrice their
own number. The plundering of freight
trains was a very common occurrence. The
farmers' houses are Invariably besieged for
bread and meat as often as the outlaws got
out of provisions; and such a reign of terror
exists that the citizens, 30 far from dreaming
ol; informing against Lowrey, or opposing him
In any way, actually send him, word on the
approach of any danger to, him or his band.
Those who have found lt possible to dispose
.-of their property have done so, and have left
a neighborhood where neither their persons

State or even the Federal authorities. -
-The trial of Mrs. Wharton, charged with
the murder pf General Ketchum by poison, i3
progressing slowly In Annapolis." The minute?
ness and. technicality of the.main poru. ol,
tbe evidence which thus far has been a?uaced
is very remarkable Indeed, and bas given rise
to. quite an- animated discussion between
soma of fae leading chemists of this country.
The attorney' for the Commonwealth, with a
zeal and energy hitherto unparalleled in the
criminal annals of the State, has brought for?
ward witnesses for the Commonwealth who
have declared upon scientific grounds, after a
long and painstaking Investigation, that ihe
poison found in the stomach ol General Ket
chum was antimony. The counsel for the de
lence, on the other hand, have Introduced
witnesses, embraciog some of the'leading
chemical experts of this country, who, after
a diligent and careful examination, have
declared that the results arrived at
by the witnesses for the Common?
wealth are "Inconclusive and fallacious.?
The evidence will probably be concluded
by the end of the present week. The counsel
for the prisoner are exhausting all their ef?
forts to secure an acquittal, aud the prevailing
impression in the community where the trial
ls going on 1B, that if the counsel for the de?
fence rebut the evidence ol the Common?
wealth in regard to the antimony the jury will
render a verdict ol "not guilty." The case is
everywhere attracting attention, and ls likely
to become one of the causes celebres cf this
country. . The prisoner ls a woman of good
address and affable manners. Her manner in
the court-room ls very natural and composed.
In jail she is not forgotten by ber friends, who
are constantly sending ber "something good ?
to eat." _,
The Import Duty on Rice.
The Chamber of Commerce and the Board |
of Trade of Charleston have entrusted to
special committees the duty of considering
the propriety of memorializing Congress, in
opposition to the proposed reduction of the |
import dnty of two and half cents a pound
on foreign rice. These bodies represent
every branch of the mercantile interests ol
this city. Among the members are the
bankers and merchants who are relied on
for active help in every matter of public con?
cern. The formal resolutions of the Chamber
and of the Board are accepted as tbe deci?
sion of the mercantile community. It ls
most important, therefore, that these organi?
zations move with prudence and delibera?
tion. They cannot afford to be pledged, by
a minority of their Dumber, to any policy j
wbicb is not clearly wise and just.
The rice trade is of great value to j
Charleston, and we can understand that
they who are engaged in it sbonld earnestly
oppose any measure which is likely tc? i
diminish tbe yearly yield. And tbe rico j
planters, who suffered terribly by the war,
anet are, by degrees, restoring their broad
acres to their former condition, are ready to j
make a hard fight against any legislation
which will lower tbe market value of their
crops, and reduce their rate of profit. We
believe that the rice planters are agreed'in
declaring that they cannot afford to grow [
rice at all, if there is any serious falling off
in tbe Beling price, and they, and their
friends, are disposed to use every means |
within their reach of preventing so unpleas?
ant a result. Tbe full force of this proposi?
tion must be felt in Charleston, where the j
losses and heavy burdens of the. w-coun try j
planters are only too well known ; bot the j
question is, whether this city, acting through
the Chamber of Commerce and Board of
Trade, can properly take active steps in favor
of the identical policy of Protection, for
which Pennsylvania and New England battle
bard, and which is expected to be overcome
by the united efforts of the South and West ?
Tbe plea of the South Carolina rice-grower
is the plea of the Pennsylvania iron founder.
Whatever the superficial difference, their
substantial merit is the same As tbe rice
grower may ask that be shall not be brought
Into competition with the pauper labor of
Asia, until the damages caused by the war
are repaired, so the mill-owners and manu?
facturers of New England ask that they be
protected against the pauper labor of Eu?
rope. Tbe Rhode Island mill-owners, who
point to their huge buildings and costly ma?
chineryr and bid representatives in Con
gres a remember that Free Trade in cottons
will make the property valueless and throw
thousands of persons ont pf employment, oe- j
cupy the same ground as the South Carolina
rice-planters, who fear that a reduction of
Lhe duty on rice will cause their acres to lie
idle and deprive their negro laborers of the
means of gaining their daily bread. Pro?
tection for the rice-grower and Protection
tor the manufacturer of cotton goods or ma
shinery is one and the same thing-as eco?
nomically false in the one case as in the
other. There is as much wisdom in de?
manding a high import duty on rice as there
is in demanding a high dnty for the encour?
agement of orange-growing In Florida. A
bandfull of bananas may, with good luck,
be grown in Charleston; but this is not held
bo justify the claim that a prohibitory duty
sbonld be imposed on tropical fruit. Absurd j
as the comparison may seem, the case of the
mill-owner, of the rice-grower, of the orange
grower and of the grower of bananas, is, in
principle, the same.
We appreciate fully the force of the argu?
ment that a reduction of the duty on rice,
however correct in principle, would inflict a
?erious ipjury upon the planters. .. This, in?
deed, suggests one of the main difficulties
with which the advocates ot Free Trade
have to contend. The benefits of protection
are sensibly, felt by the persons for whose
advantage the high duty is imposed; The j
blessings of free trade are distributed the
whole country over, and are shared by all
its people. Bat if it be borne in mind that
a duty on cottons is a tax levied upon every
consumer of cottons for the profit of the
mill-owner and manufacturer, lt will be
understood at once that Protection considers,
the well-being of the few, while Free Trade
consults the well-being of the many. It is to
the interest of the rice-growers and rice-mer?
chants that the product should, in conse?
quence of a Protective dnty, sell at a remu?
nerative price. It is to the interest of every
consumer of rice throughout the United
States that it should be obtained at the low?
est possible cost Against the temporary
harm done the rice-grower by Free Trade
must be set the permanent advantage real?
ized by every consumer of rice throughout j
the country. It may be said that a Protec?
tive duty on rice is only demanded as long
as New England and Pennsylvania demand]
a protective duty upon the manufactures in
which they are interested. But two wrongs
do not make a right. The fact that an
American citizen pays daty upon every arti- j
cle of clothing, upon every pound of iron,
and upon every implement with which he j
werke, is no reason why he should also be
taxed opon every pound of rice which ia
bought aa food for bis family. .
There is another point which should, not
be forgotten. The Sooth is the:na.*,.ural ally
of the West, which ia the mainstay of the
Free Trade movement Free Trade la a car?
dinal doctrin? of the Democratic party, and
is opposed by the majority of tbe Republican
party. The Free Tratare o? the North* the
Sooth and the West will be able, before long,
BO to control the legislation of the country
that every man will buy whatever he needs
wherever it cari be had cheapest. So rapid?
ly is the movement gaining strength that the
Republicans are already preparing to throw
a tub to the whale in the shape of minor re?
ductions of import duties. Upon this ground
they are willing to reduce the duty on rice;
a generous concession to the Free Trade sen?
timent, at the expense of Georgia and the j
Carolinas. There is behind this the hope that j
the Southern'States may be led to commit \
themselves to Vie doctrine of Protection,
We say that, if the City of Charleston, out
pf consideration for the unfortunate rice
planters, petitions Congress to retain the
Protective duty on rice, we shall be abso?
lutely debarred from taking part in aDy agi?
tation for the removal of the import duties
which enrich New England while they im?
poverish the rest of the Union. Ifwea?k
Congress to remove the duty on cottons,
woollens and iron, wbil? we urge that body
to retain the duty upon rice, we say, in effect,
that South Carolina is only a Free Trade
State in the sense that she is unwilling that
any Protective duty should be imposed ex?
cept Jor the benefit of her own people.
The dnty on rice was raised to the present |
rate (two and a half cents a pound) in 1864.
In 1861 the dnty was only one cent a pound,
and from 1857 to 1861 the duty was fifteen per
cent. It will probably be proposed to reduce
the duty to the rate obtaining before the war.
We had t?o objection to retaining the present
rate, which was imposed without the consent
of the South, and was continued withonther
request. Rut when the question, stripped of
all disguise, is, whether Charleston, through
her.commercial representatives, shall array
herself on the side of Free Trade or of Pro?
tection, we unhesitatingly place THE NEWS
squarely on the side of Free Trada And we
cannot believe that the mercantile commu?
nity, when they ponder the matter, will
make a different decision. We heartily wish,
however, that no public action had been
taken in Charleston upon this subject.
