Bonday Morning, April 24,1870.
Bound Views- I'I'rcttction."
Referring to an able speech of Mr.
Marshall, Democratic member of Con?
gress from Illinois, on the subject of
"proteotion," the New York World thus
explains the principio of "proteotion:"
"The principle of 'protection' is this:
that, whereas ia aa untrammelled stale
A can sell a certain article for $1 und B
can only afford tb sell a like article for
$1.50, some power exterior to A and B is
to step in and Say that, while B muy sell
at $1.50, no one is to boy from A eave
on condition of paying $1 for tho privi?
lege. Under these circumstances, as A's
wares are made to cost $2, ($1 cost and
$1 privilege,) and B's only cost $1.50,
the customer is necessarily forced to buy
of B. Tbi#* is 'proteotion,' and the
process indicated the one wboreby B is
'protected' Against A. The price of the
protection, or that privilege tax which
the exterior power prescribes in its in?
termeddling with A and B's business
transactions, falls, of course, actively on
O, the consumer, and only passively on
A, since the effect of 'protection,' quoad
A, is merely to keep A from selling nt all,
but, quoad O, to force G to pay $1.50 to
B rather.than $1 to A, Under penalty, if
he io i ll boy from Ai of paying fifty cents
more than is asked by 13. "
Mr. Marshall takes the proper ground,
that all taxation should be limited to the
necessity of providing means for the
support of, tho State, and then BIIOWS
that "proteotion" is a matter alien to the
necessary/; end of taxation. He next
shows tbai,"proteotion" or a protective
tariff, is the enemy of commerce.. The
World, analyzing Mr. M.'s Bpeecb, goes
on to say:
"Oommeroe is ordinarily held to sig?
nify business intercourse between foreign
countries.. That this intercourse should
be as easy and full as possible-that the
tropics, for instance, sho lld send us pine?
apples, and we send the tropics icc-has,
the wide world over, been held as an ap?
proved maxim; and yet 'protection,' or
the hampering or shuttiug out of this
exoh an ge, is, as Mr. Marshall very well
says, the 'antagonizing of commerce.'
As snob an opponent of free interna?
tional exchange, it subserves the same
ends os do mountains, or marshes, or
dangerous and rooky seas; that is to say,
the ends of hindrance, delay, obstruc?
tion, and exclusion. With the use of the
compass, the steamship, tho submarine
telegraph, the ease of commerce has been
wonderfully served; and yet, if inimical
legislation forbid the just fruition of these
great discoveries, the world, so fur as
suoh legislation operates, is put back
iuto that condition of commercial pupil?
age which existed before the mariner hud
the needle to guide him on tho wave, or
the potenoy of steam to mock the vola?
tile humors of the water and the wind."
? ; * * * * * *
" 'Proteotion' hides itself under the
necessity of raising taxes for the sup?
port of the Government; but this is the
way the thing really works: Of every
dollar paid out by the people for cotton
fabrics, 30 cents go to the 'protected*
monopolist mill-owner, and 3}4 cents
only to the Federal Treasury. On every
dollar for woolen goods, but 10 ceuts go
to the Government and GO cents to the
monopolist; on refined iron, 5 cents to
the Treasury and 52 cents to the 'pro?
tected' forge; on men's wool hats aud
women's bal m orals, on all our ordinary
blankets and carpets, iron, steel, woollen
goods, and oigars, every Bingle cent of
the tax goes to the 'protected' classes,
and not a dime into the Treasury. Hore
there is not even a bare pretence of the
money going to the support of the Go?
vernment, but those who nestle in the
fat places of 'protection' get all."
TBUK AS GOSPEII.-The great aim and
end of reconstruction, outside of plun?
der, is an attempt on the part of the
radicals to divert attention from the
North to the South. So long as the
Northern heart can be fired by Ku Klux
outrages at the South, tbe day of reck?
oning will be postponed. But nausea
will come out of these times and with it
enlightenment. Then let the Sumners,
Drakes and Mortous prepare for execu?
< ? -
THK Tann "LOYAL."-In a recent de?
bate in the United States Congress, thc
following point was made. It is well
Mr. Eldridge declaimed against tho
word "loyal" us a word he despised and
hated. It always reminded htm of a de?
finition of it given by a contractor dur?
ing the war, wheu pressed to explain
what he meant by suyiug he felt loyal.
He said he felt us if ho wunted to bteal
something or somebody. For himself,
ho was patriotio, not loyul. The word
did not belong to this country; it only
belonged to Massachusetts.
COUNT US IN.-The Charleston News,
in a somewhat impatient comment upon
tho dignified and manly announcement
of its position by the PIIO?NIX, says:
"The Citizons'Party is not actively op?
posed to tho ad minist rut i on of Grunt."
We rejoice over thia announcement. If
tho Juno Convention will adopt ns its
Federal policy tho following resolution:
(since Federal policy it must have) "Thut
the Citizens' Reform Party is not orga?
nized in opposition to Gen. Grunt's ad?
ministration, but in opposition to extra?
vagance and corruption in State taxation
and expenditure," wo, as a Graut jour?
nal, promise it onr most cordial support.
Never let a day pass without an effort
to make some one happier.
THE CONVENTION.-Tho press confer?
ence recommended that the decent and
honest pop?lo, black no weil IM whitey
of Sou tb Carolina Bhorild bold a con?
ven tion ia June. The resolutions did noli
say "decent and honest," but we alt
know that tho whole movement meaun
to unite and harmonize the decent and
honest of the laud. As regards honesty
and decency among the blaoks, the
difficulty ia not that they are cither dis?
honest or iudeoent themselves, but that
they are-or have been, at all oven ts
very prone to tie to leaders who are both
dishonest and indecent. If the resolu?
tions of the press conferonco, uud tho
subsequent action of the convention,
can induce the blacks to leave off
supporting; these rascals and plun?
derers, and live in harmony and
good understanding with the white
people among whom they were born
and raised, they will bavo wrought u
good work indeed. The effort is
u?e, honorable and praiseworthy.
We mean the effort inaugurated by the
gentlemen of the Press, who met in Co?
lumbia some weeks ago. They met to?
gether to exchange views, to encourage
our ppoplo in their efforts to oppose their
oppressors, and to work unitedly in that
path which presents the most certain
means of defeating tho common enemy,
and of restoring the State to tho hands
of those who respect ber material inter?
ests aud who honor ber dearest memo?
ries. This is the long and short of the
matter. And we do not see how any un?
prejudiced man or journal cnn view it
If tho Convention is to bo held in
.Tune, is EdgeQeld to be represented? We
ask if it is to be held in Juuo, because a
number of the papera of tho State have
seemed to think it would bo wiser to bold
Lot us make baste slowly, and in what?
ever we say or do, let us remember thut
that mission of the Convention, if ouo.
be held, will bo to restore good govern?
ment, reduce expeuditures, abato taxa?
tion, encourage public improvements,
and establish harmony between labor
and capital. To obtain a good State go?
vernment is the paramount need. The
means by which it may be obtained is of
secondary importance, provided we deny
no principle and resort to uo deception.

poars in tho Observer this morning-Heinitsh's
"QUEEN'S DELIGHT." There must bo some?
thing in it, for wo hear it spoken of as a pr??
parai iou of much merit, and one prepared by
Dr. Heinitsh himself, of distinguished phar?
maceutical reputation. The euphonious sou?
briquet, "QCEEN'S DELIOIIT," has in itself an
attraction which t-hould commend it to our
lady friends in need of so excellent a medi?
cine, and wc suppose all would bo benefited
by ita use. For eulo by FISUEU & HEINITSII,

December ll, 136'.), says:
"fhis medicino is rapidly gaining confi?

medicine, leaves no doubt that it is a safe and
reliable remedy for IMPCIUTY OF THE BLOOD,

Roskoo to the practitioners of medicino.
This is, wo believe, tho first instance whore
such medicinen have boen officially endorsed
by the Faculty of any of tho Medical Colleges,
