The Morrill Tariff Bill.
The New York Evening Pest, a strong Re
publican journal, denounces the Republican Tar,
iff bill now pending li th0vUnlted States Sen
ate, without ttint, and calls upon the Republican1
id Congress to vote against it and. save the Chlca
go piatrocna e quos some or usjaaiarss
"The mercbanta of this olty are thrown into
consternation by tbe probability that Congress
will casa the tarin bill or Mr. Morrill, with
all the amendments tt seems likely to receive,
it Is a measure which, if carried through Con
gress, will ruin thousands and seriously dimin
ish tbe trade of this city. Those who are not
ruined by the destruction Of the' Varehouseing
system will ne ruinea ny its promotions.
"There are many who auppose that the bill
Mfn- th Senate la merelv a nreieet for mod
araUly Increasing the duties, that we may de
rive a larger revenue from our importations.
This la an enure miataxe. me dui, oesiaes
the obstruction It places in the way of the im
norter.bv the repeal of the warehouse system
plaoea so heavy a duty on many artioles which
are Imported and used in large quantities, that
U prohibits their importation altogether. t Os
these aame articles, and on some others "loss
heavily loaded perhaps with duties, the mode of
assessing and collecting tnem is so complicated,
that, besides the perplexity and delay which
the Importer must encounter, the expenses of
collection to toe government must 0 more man
doubled The importer la worried at an exor.
biant cost to tbe treaauryr. It' would he better
to make the goods contraband at once.
"We will give an example or two of the in
trioaoiea of , tbe. proposed tariff. .Beaver and
pilot cloths, and the like used for overooate, to
gether with woolen blankets costing one dollar
or leas the square yard, -are charged "With fit
teen cents doty on the pound and fifteen per
eent d brm, which Is equal, to from thirty
to ninety-five per eent d talorm on these com
modities. Druggets, Dockings and felt carpet
Ices are ehanred with r fifty cent; tbe sonar
yard, wbioh equals from forty one to a hundred
and eleven per eent ad valorem. Cloths, cassi
mera, doeskins and ladies cloaking, valued at
twenty-five cent and not exceeding seventy,
five cents the square yard, are -subjected to a
duty of sixteen eenta a pound and a duty of twen
ty per cent md valorem, which is equal to from
forty-one to eighty-four per eent. In all these
cases the great bulk of importations are of the
lower and cheaper qualities me finer and dear
r come la small quantities. , We may fairly
state, therefore, that Morrill's bill raises tbe
duties on wollens from twenty-four per cent, as
they stand at present, to an average of some
thing like seventy or seventy-five per -eent. A
tax so exorbiant must out off the importations
almoat wholly. If tbeee goods should contin
ue to be imported and the duties paid, the bur
den would fall upon the least wealthy claes. tr
"Yet the "woolen manufacturers dot not aek
for these Increased duties. Oreviously as thev
will oppress the consumer, and greatly as they
threaten to diminish the income from customs,
they are a gratuitous perversion of the powers
of legislation. Neither the owners of woolen
mills, nor -the consumer of woolen, nor the
United States treasury are1 considered in their
insertion in the bill. They are put there for
tbe sake of making- the- system umformfo
the sake of giving Mr. Morrill and hi! con
federate an apology for levying similar exac
tions on those who import and consume com mo
ditiea of the tame khvk as .those 'manufactured
in Pennsylvania. Tbe owners of the woolen
mills are perfectly satisfied with tbe present
tariff, and would regard a change In it as a mis
chief done to their Interest. ; They want ao
tariff enaoted tbia year which In three or four
year will be oettainJy repeated. ,'yT'r
Oa glass 4be duty wbioh' the-Morrill'bill
propose to levy is enormous. If we look at
the census of: trades and professions in the
Daited State, taken in 1850, we find that the
number of glass manufacturers In tbe United
States, is 3,237, and that nearly half of these are
in Pennsylvania- To enrich these Mr. Morrill
proposes to pat, not revenue doty, but a pro
hibitory one, on ordinary window glass. It
will be made to pay a duty of from one to three
cent a (foot, varying according to dimensions,
aad then an md uuormi duty of twenty-five eent.
Roueh plate glass of email else, one-eighth of
an ! men ; tniox, wiu ne everwneimea wiu a
duty estimated at toe iundrtd tnd ainrty fit ptr
ernt v Polished English and French plate glass
it let off with a duty amounting to only etw
hundred per cent.' on the value.' 'Mr. Morrill
and hi friends will not surely pretend that du
ties like these can bring any revenue. Tbev

tlon,wbloh it too much to- be hoped for, our
national treubles woold aooa be terminated:
Whixiab. The Confederacy oT tht States it
now menaced bv imminent daneer, threatening,
not 'only a disruption thereof, but a civil war
between its antagonist sections; ana wnereas it
is ths duty or all political organisations 10 ex
ert their utmost influence 'to preserve lntaot
tbe Union f the States, and to restore that
spirit of fraternity -and brotherhood whioh once
'characterized our whole people; and whereat it
Is due to our brethren br each and every State
thai a full, frank and firm expression of our
views should be enunciated therefore. "
Retolved, That it is the opinion of the De
rnanripr' of Connecticut, in convention assem
ble, that' this government Is a confederacy of
independent States, based and founded upon the
quat rights of each, and any legislation trench
ing upon the great principle of their equality is
a wanton violation of the spirit tnd letter of the
coostitntioual compact. -
1- Retolted, Thai th present lamentable condH
lion of the country, finds its origin in the- un
constitutional seta and sectional spirit' of a
great ' Northern 'party! the principles of whose
organisation' deny ' the people of one class of
States the enjoyment and exercise of the same
political rights claimed and demanded by an
other Class of States; tbes Ignoring and destroy
ing the great political truth which is tbe foun
dation of bur government and the vital princi
ple of the Constitution of the United States. "
Reiolvtd, That the pernicious doctrine of .co
ercion Instead of "conciliation", to be applied to
the aecediag States, which Is now advocated and
urred bv the leaders of tbe Northern sectional
party. Is utterly at war with the exercise of
right reason, matured judgment, snd the princi
ple of the Constitution of the United States,
and should be strongly resisted by eerv lover
of ouroommon country, by every well wisher to
tbe best interest of th human race, as opposed
to th progress and civilisation of the age, as
the sure precursor of' an internecine war in
whioh would be sacrificed the lives of hundreds
of thousands of our fellow eitlxtns, tht expendi
ture of countless millions of treasure, the de
struction of the moral and oommerolal Interests
of our people; and not only utterly fail of its
avowed object-i-tbe restoration of tbe Union
but defeat forever Its reconstruction. '
1 Retoited, That a restoration of good feeliog
between the inhabitants of our common country,
should be.and is, tbe paramount retllng in every
patriotic heart; to that treat' obltct should be
saorifioed sectional" prejudic and lh spirit of
partisanship; therefore tbe Democracy of Con
nection t earnestly eom mend to the attention' of
Congress tbe proposition or in venerable and
distinguished Senator from Kentucky; believ
ing that the adoption thereof, or loot of a sim
ilar okaraoter, would greatly coodooe to har
monize the opinions of the North and South,
stay tbe progress o,f secession;' and to tbe re-
eooetrucnea ol a aow dissevered union: ,:
Rt$oloed, That tbe Senators and Representa
tives from Connecticut in the present Congress
ef tbe United States being pccially charged
by virtue of their office, with tbe duty of proiec
liar and Dreaerrin' the Union in it Integrity.
have utterly failed to meet tbe rrquiremcnte of
their high position iffl thi time ef imminent
danger; that they have manifested aa inexcu
sable indifference to the welfare of the people,
by steadily refusing either to present ou their
own part any proposition looking toward! com
promise and peace, or to vote for any seen otter
when presented by outers; and have disappoint
ed the just expectations of the people of this
State, who had boped that their Representative

It iS true a haa been said b the, Prnaidsnt of

upon me In the position to which the votac of
the American peon e have called mm. I am
duly sensible of that weighty retnonsibilltv.
can but know what you all know, that witbont
a name, perhaps without a reason why I ahonld
care a name, mere naa fallen upon me a task
such as did not rest even upon the Father of
his country. And so feel ine, I tan only turn
snd look for those supports without which it
will be Impossible for me to perform that great
task. I torn, then, and look to the American
people, and to that God who hat never forsaken
the American people. Allusion hat been made
to the interest felt in relation to tbe policy of
tus now AomiuiBiraQoo. in reierence to mis,
I have received from some aouroet some degree
of credit lor having kept silence from others,
some degree of deprecation! J stjl think I
wat right. In th varying and repeated! v shift

by tbt past, it bat teemed fitting before speak

Mr.JtOBINSON From the Judlolary Cora
mlttP. remrted back Senate Bill 224, author
izing the guarantee of United States Bands
without amendment, wnen tne out was reau a
third time.-r '.- ' " ' '2
Mr. CONVERSE moved to amend the bill
by striking out of tbe Preamble, tha words "to
sustain we autiiuriij ui wo gcuvini iviwmiii",
Mr. PLANTS laid if the bill bad patted the
Senate In thit form, be ahould not be particular
about it; but he thought that striking out, the
words at this time, would teem like reiusmg to
sustain the authority of the government,
.Mr. WRIGHT, of Hamilton, thought the
expression sustaining trtdit wat more appropri
ate . than tusiaining auwonty- jj woum no
more acceptable to many members with the
ohanire. and it would receive a larger vote; and
he would for this reason advocate the change.
Mr. WOODS ; favored tbo amendment, as
proper, and appropriate. .
Mr. FAGG said that while he would not Vote
against the bill on account ot any such preamble;
yet he thoughtlt nheceeeary to reiterate on de
votion to the Union at every breath. This ia a
business matter tnd it it best to treat It limp
ly in business style
Mr.' Sleadman thought these were timet
when we could not reiterate a great truth or an
expression of devotion to it ctnnot be to often
made. ' - r - "'--,
Mr. FELLOWS objected to the bill for two
reasons. He did not want to put me uenerai
Government in the attitude of asking ut to en'
dorse for it. It wu too humiliating a petition
for the dignity of the nation, and be wat op
posed to the principle of endorsing. He would
rather borrow the money, or raise a tax and pay
the surplus revenue back to the Uenerai uov
eminent at onoe. . , , - ,..
Mr. SCOTT, Of Warren, alluded to the bad
economy of the Administration, and then're-
marked that the State of Ohio could not well
afford tb pay thit money; and it would be a po
litic proceeding to comply with the provision of
this bill rather than tax the people at thit time
to pay np the loan. He contended that sustain
ing the authority of tbe United States wat tbe
mott important matter btfore ut. (To ttrlke
out that term now would, appear like retreating
rrom the lormer position 01 tnu Atsembly. ' -
Mr., y OH13 taid be did not reel particular
about toil amendment. If we pass this bill,'
we shall do ai much toward tustalolng tbe au
thority or credit of the government, aa if we
tty it ever to strongly in tbe preambles-. -
Mr. . FLAGQ advocated the passsge of the
bill, and deprecated any party discussion of the
tubiect. He laid it waa very desirable that the
bill should pass with as little discussion fcnd aa
much unanimity as possible. It would help the
sale of the' Bonds to pan if nntnimouelfi -
Mr. JONES, of Hamilton,' moved to farther
amend the preamble, by ttrlklng out the words
"in th present diiturbed eondiiiooof the ooiu)?-
try."
Mr. DEVORE opposed the bill and the pre
amble, particularly at looking to coercion of the
couth. He thought tuon guarantee at tbe bill
contemplated would violate the constitution of
Ohio. i'i 1 ..i .'
Mr. BROWNE, of Miami, pointed out the
fact that the turplut revenue wat received by
tbe btate, betore tha present Constitution was
adopted; and therefore the present Constitution
cannot bar any proper provision for its payments.
He thought tbe preamble wat altogether prop
er; If any man waa opposed to its language.
because he was opposed to sustaining the au
thority ot the United States, he would like him
to tay ao; for be could not think there were any
such In the State. He said thit bill wa not a
party matter at all; and It ihould not be to
treated, t-'-t"1" ' ' , j".r:; - .-; -;tt'i
Mr.ROBINSON suggested that as the pre
amble wat no part of the bill, that the bill be
voted upon at once, and therefore demanded tbe
previous question, whioh wat sustained.' '
1 he vote wat then taken nnon the amend
ment offered by Mr. Converse, which was .disa-
greedlto yets 45, naya 52.
-1 be bill was then read a third time, when tbe
bill wat passed yeaa 74f nayt 25. ,
Tht previous question being exhausted, the
question turned upon toe preamble, wheo T 1
Bit. iuaAo moved to amend tbe preamble
by inserting the word "constitutional" before the
word "authority."
Air.. UU.L3 tuatalaed . tbo . preamble. He
would not take out any portion of it, at it would
beaaother back down, It we lustaln the authori
ty of the Nation we sustain its authority; and
mat is wnai we ougnt to ao. j( it secession
that hat caused the necessity for thit bill, and
it wit not Improper to promise to f attain the
anthority ot the tovernment,. .1
Mr. PLANTS laid be felt tbt importance ef
pasting toil Din at once, and would tbertfore
move tbe previous question, whioh wat sustain-
ed, by Si yeu, 4t nay
Tbe vote waa then taken on tha amendment
of Mr. Jonas, oa which the yeet and naya were
demanded, and reauited, yeat 44, nayt 64

-Ue says, judging'from the activity of tha peo
ple and the extensive preparations which art
being made, that they will present a pretty for.
midable display, and make a mott desperate ef
fort to takejthe fort. He ia fully prepared.
In a very ibort time after the attack ia made,
the government will attempt to throw rein

Major Anderson ia of opinion that he ean
maintain hit position and resist an attack for
an indefinite period..; He hat been Informed by

be will be immediately reinforced. Thati ail
he desires. .The Secretaries of War andjof the
Navy bavt been engaged for tomelini in, ar
ranging mattert for that end.
It ii rumored that the President hat received
intelligence from Charleston stating that Gov.
Ilckeua had referred the question jol Fort
Sumter it having now become a national
question to the government of the Southern
Confederacy at Montgomery, and that no move
ment would be made looking to an attack until

. Siat I have the honor to acknowledge tha re-
oeipt of your letter, requesting me to inform
you now tne- Duainese -ot mu oiuoe, ainoc n
passage or me urainanoe oi Decession tu tue
present time, compares with the busineai durin g
the tame period in omer yean. , (
- Tbe Ordinance or oecession passed on me
20th December, but the Custom House, aa you
remember, waa not taken possession of by the
State until the 27th of that month. In replying
to your inquiry,1- therefore, I will assume this
last date at the proper period at which to com
mence the comparison.
I enolose you a statement showing the
amount of duties received in cashi and secured
by bond on warehouse goods, for the two pe
riods mentioned; also tbe value ef foreign ex
port, and the number ofjarrivalt and clearances
of vessels .? v H i i 'tt
You will observe' that, to far as the duties
are concerned, tbe amount received in caah and
secured by bond, since tbe lecesslon of the
State, exceeda that for the tame period of the
previoai -jeer,, with the -.explanation I hare
given in relation to the cargo of h Emily St;
Pierrot' "" -J
No record hat ever been 'kept in the offioe of
our eoaatwise exports, and I caunot, tnereiore,
give you any official information ontblahead.
That Information mutt be sought from tbe
newspapers.' ; As to our foreign 'exported you
will observe a considerable decrease ia the last
period. This is owing to several causes, and
among them to the fact that an unusually large
amount of cotton and other merchandise wat
ibipped just previously to tbe Ordinance of Se
cession, and since, that time much of our ex
ports bav gone forward to Northern port, to be
ibipped from theie. The cotton crop hat also
been very alow in coming forward.
In regard to our prospect of business for the
coming season, I would submit the' following
Mm,lr, jfTnrlov an ntrnnmntannM. the busi
ness of the aooroachine season would be com
paratively,- light, In consequence of the short
provision crop in several of tht States which
trade with us. 'What amount of business we
may do, In this state of things, will depend
very Diuoh upoo the question ofpeaoeor war.
If we have peace, we will have a fair amount
of business, but not aa much aa lu the years im
mediately preceding this. The shortness of tbe
provision crops, to which 1 hart tlluded, will bt
one cause: and in addition to thltf the credit of
our merchants ha no doubt been effected by tbe
change in our political relations. I am informed
that the orders of merchants bare been reduced,
and in tome esse countermanded, and , at a
general result," we may expect a considerable
deduotlon in our business for tbt coming season
On the other band, if. we establish a new Gov
ernment, and maintain peaceable relations with
all other States and pationa, we may confident
ly look forward to a vervex!ended increase In
out trade and commerce.-, w" C. v J.ju ' -'
