To lit'.' editor of the Alexandria Gazette :
The word luritf. is of Spanish origin, and
derives i:s use from tho name of a town sit
uated at the entrance of the Straits of Gi?
braltar, called Tarjfa. At this place, duties
or customs were formerly collected on goods
intended for sale ; and lroru this usage, the
word tariff came to be used as synonymous
with lbs words duties, customs and im- I
ports, therefore the word fr.rifi mean3 a toll
or tax paid to a government for the privi?
lege of bringing ia und sending out goods to
be sold in a home or foreign market.
Tho origin of I ho necessity for a tarifl',
duties, customs and imports, on goods to be
sold within or without a country, was for
the purpose of raiting money or revenue, to
defray the expenses of the government of
such a country. Heuce, a tariff is divided
iuto one of two varieties, viz : A tariff for
revenue to pay tho just expenses of a gov?
ernment, and a tariff for protection ol tho
manufactured articles of a country againrt
the sale of foreign goods in such a country.
A tarifl'for revenue is purely for tho welfare
of the government making it. A tariff for
protection, is to protect the manufacturer of
one country against the competition in price
of ciinikir articles or goods produced or
manufactured in another country.
When oue government fixes a tariff or tax
on goods ol another country, at very high
rates of duty, imposts-or customs, it ia called
a hig.h protective latiG'; and this variety of
tariff, in many instances, amounts to a pro?
hibition of the sale within such country of
such goods ao are prejudiced by a high pro?
The right of a government to levy taxes,
or tariff, for the purpose ci' righteous aud
economical support, cannot be denied; but
when tho legislative department of a gov?
ernment undertakes to levy taxes and tar?
iffs, with the intention of protecting tho bus
ite.-s of one class of its business population,
against, and at tho expense, of another class
of il3 business population, it became a mon?
strous and liefuricus example of class-legis?
lation, and cannot, under auy circumstances,
bo enforced without great injustice to a large
majority of the population. It is simpTy a
fraudulent combination of the legislative de
partme_t of a government with n few man
iacturers, to enable them to filch from the
consumer a part of his earnings to be paid
to such manufacturers, ivs a sort of royalty
on tbeir manufactured goods.
Taking from the many to benefit the few
is not a figure of Bpe<: h. when received in
connection with the legislation on tho sub
ject of :?. protective tariff. Tho specious
appeals of cupidity a:.il the cunniag designs
of the avaricious mauofactureis, have so dis?
torted, confused and tutored the minds of
the people on tho BUbject, that the meaning
and intent of the word tariii", ate almost be?
yond tho comprebc-nsicn"and undi n landing
of the. masses, while the peculating charac?
ter of the question blunts their
sensibility, and leaves them almost
without i< conscience to feel the
covetous inequality of the operations
of an act oi Congress creating a protective
fariir A rsau is almost iost to his pecunia?
ry welfare, wbon he will, without the pro?
test of his vote, allow a majority of Conetess,
to pass a law which takes at least twenty
five per cent, of his hard earnings to enrich
the sordid manufacturer, without tho slight?
est or most distant prospect of cornpensa
tiori; and in this way, a protective tariff is
nothing more than a legal license to plund?
er and rob the consumer to gratify the greed
of the manufacturer.
A tariff oil goods for tho purpose of rais?
ing a revenue to pay governmental expenses
has degenerated into r. vicious and corrupt
protective tariff ia order, at great cxpouse to
tho consumer, to put enormous profits into
tho pockets of the manufacturer; and so
powerful have these business men grown,
whom a protective tariff benefits, that they
have not only the power to control tho prices
of article.*) of ordinary consumption, but
with (be prowess of imperial sovereigns,
can, and do proclaim, months iu advance of
a demaac^, what shall 1>:> the prica of Such
A plunderer must be allowed to pursue or
be assisted in pursuing his own plan of ob
tainiug dishonest gains, or he will desist for
fear or detection and punishment in tho at?
tempt to get that which bo does not honest?
ly cam. In his pursuit of unjust gains the
beneficiary of the protective tariff has been
most openly and amply assisted, not only
by al! the power of a monied iutluence, hut
by all the force of cunning and dishonorable
machinations, aided and confirmed by a ma?
jority of the votes, of members of Congress.
Avarice will bo always enthusiastic when
encouraged by the act of making money,
and it is easier to coax a cormorant from its
meal tban to expect the beneficiary of a pro*
tective tariff to cease bis efforts to bribe and l
deceive Congress, until tho large consuming
class calls into legislative action representa- ;
tives who will scorn class-legislation and re- j
peal every law that prevents the consumer j
from exercising the pecuniary right of buy?
ing articles where he can get them the i
cheapest, whether of native or forcigu man- ;
ufacture. -lost respectfully,
