THE AMERICAN MERCANTILE MARINE.
A few days ago the President sent to
Congress a special message on the subject
ot the decline of American commerce,
especially as indicated by the failing oil in
our mercantile tonnage, aud the necessity
of some legislative measures to revive it.
There are two points on which the Presi
dent insists with considerable emphasis—
one that the freights paid to foreign vessels
are absolutely lost to Ihe country, as much
so as if the m :ney were cast into the sea
and the other, that a mercantile marine is
so importaut. an auxiliary to the navy that
it renders a costly naval establishment to
some ex cent unnecessary. In illustration
of the second point he refers to some con
spicucus and suggestive facts. At the
commencement of the late war the navy
consisted of leas than ouo hundred ve^sois,
Oi about 130,0(/0 tous, and with a force of
bOIJO men, while the government drew
from the mercantile marine six hundred
v-sseifa, of more than a million tons, and
carrying about 70,000 men. These facts,
the President says, "demonstrate the value
of the nn reliant marine as a means of
national defense in time of war."
la this view there can bo no dissent
from Ihe President's opinion. The mer
chant marine is the nursery of seamen as
well for the peaceful pursuits of commerce
as tor the conflicts of war, as well of the
bold and enterprising mariners, who dare
the tempestuous seal* and steer their
prows across the extended ocean to bring
from distant lauds the products of alien
industry, us of the great discoverers who
have linked their names with the wonders
of geographical exploit, aud of the heroes
who have made maritime warfure illus
trious iu history. The countries which
have obtained the empiro of the seas, have
always been those countries in which the
commercial spirit has been most highly
developed, and in which a commercial
navy has furnished the seamen who have
triumphed in time of war. This is the
history of Venetian aud Genoese suprem
acy during the middle ages, of the brief
but brilliant episode o( (he Dutch mari
time domination a few centuries later; of
the preponderance England on the seas
for the last two hundred years, and of the
marvelous naval efforts made by the
United States during the recent war.
So far. therefore, the President is forti
in his views by history, and by theory
generalized from the facts of history. It
is true, likewise, that a country in which
the commercial spirit is in a state of
decadence, aud in which the carrying trade
is in procession of transference to the
hands offoreigners, is in a fair way to lose
whatever of maritime strength and energy
it may have possessed, and ot risking de
feat in any encounter with a first-class
naval power. And this, according to the
testimony, is now the position of
the United fc-lates , whereas, before
the war two-thirds of our foreign trade
was conducted in American bottoms, now
the foreign tonnage preponderates and is
daily assuming larger proportions. The
fact has been notice-d and commented on
by the press; it has been ably discussed
by Mr. Wells in his late report to Con
gress; by a committee of the present
House of Representatives, aud is now
made die subject of a special Presidential
message. The questions which force
themselves on the attention of Ihe country
are, then, is this Stale of afljirs an evil,
and if so, what are its causes, and how
can they be removed ? Here we regret
that the President has contented himself
with ascertaining the facts and adopting
ihe suggestions of the committee without
inquiry how far the causes which have
operated so disastrously on the American
shipping interest may be removed, and
whether the remedy proposed by the com
mittee would not be rather an aggravation
than a mitigation of tho evil.
It is undeniably true that, in a certain
sense, the money paid for Ireights, wheth
er to foreigners or citizens, is lost, inas
much as it adds to the cost ot the article
carried, without increasing its exchange
able value. But the fact that Ihe money
i-i paid to foreigners proves simply that
foreigners now build nud sail ships more
cheaply than we can build and sail them,
and, consequently, it is to our interest to
ship iu foreign rather lhaa in American
bottoms. If this were (he normal result
of natural causes, it would not, justly, be a
source of complaint, and would not call
for special remedy. But the truth is, it is
the result ol abnormal aud artificial cadses.
The decline of Amerioan commerce and
the decadence of American shipping are,
primarily, due to ihe protective system,
w hich taxes every article entering into the
construction of a ship to such an extent
that American ship building has been
virtually destroyed It is cheaper now
to Luy a ship iu the British provin
ces than to build one in Maine or
New York, and it is still cheaper
10 ship our products in foreign bottoms.
To adqpt the subsidy system would only
aggravate the evil by multiplying the pb
jects of governmental intervention, Ly in
terfering with (be results which necessa
rily flow from tho system we have adopted,
and which furnish a partial escape from its
pernicious consequences, and by taxing
the general industry of the country to re
establi-h a special industry which has be
come unprofitable. The true plan is to
resort to the plain and simple principle of
non-interference, and to abandon the
repressive system which lias ruined our
shipping interest, and paralyzed so many
other branches of enterprise. Let us have
free play for the energy, and industry, and
enterprise of the country, and we shall
again see the American flag predominant
in our ports, and again point with pride
to a commercial marine which, in case of
foreign war, will give us the mastery of
the ocean. _ %
A LUMINOUS JUDGE.
Judge Cooley, of Ihe Sixth District
Court, has coolly given an "opinion,"
making nearly four oolumna of the Pica
yune : and, although set in small type,
that is no evidence that the "opinion" is a
small one, or that the people should have
a small opinion of the Judge that could
write four columns to sustain his right to
ignore and set aside a law of the Legisla
ture before it has been declared unconsti
tutional by the Supreme Court cf this
State. Tho gratuitous "opinion - " of Judge
Cooley, therefore, inasmuch as his court is
not a Supreme Court and he is
not a Supreme Judge, becomes su
premely ridiculous, not to say
anything worse, from the fact
that he is giving an opinion"
'•as :s an opinion," without beir.g asked
for it. It may be, however, that the
Judges of the Supreme Court, when the
matter of the constitutionality of the law
in question, establishing the Eighth Court,
is brought before them to be passed upon,
feeling gratelul for the flood of judicial
light thrown upon this great constitutional
question by the veiy !u< id and lengthy
"opinion" of the very able -Judge who
presides with so much dignity, judgment
anil coolness over the Sixth District Court,
wiil at once proceed to pass him a vote of
thanks and recommend his judicial
promotion. The very fact that
Judge cau write four columns of
an " opinion " *• as is an opinion," sus
taining his right to ignore a plain duty in
his own court, and to usurp the powers of
another and a h : gber court, is enough iu
this age ot Democratic progress to estab
lish him as a bright light—one that should
be followed—and if the Supreme Court of
this State fails to see Judge Cooley iu this
light, it will no doubt be said it is be
cause its judges are Republican, and are
incapable of keeping up with (lie spirit of
the age. But whether the Supreme
Court accepts this ''opinion" or not,
we are satisfied will make very little dif
ference with Judge Cooley. He is not a
man, like potter s clay, to be moulded into
any form that man would have him lake.
He is made of sterner stuff, and whon his
stroqg and luminous mind has formed an
" opinion," and he has giveu it to the
world, he means it shall go for what is
worth and nothing less. If, therefore, the
Supreme Court should decide that the law
establishing the Eighth Court is constitu
tioual and that Judge Dibble and Clerk
Lynne have a valid existence, we shall
be prepared to hear that Judge Cooley
still maintains his "opinion," the Supreme
Court to the contrary notwithstanding, for
be is just the kind ot a man to stick up to
his "opinion."
The idea tbal the judiciary power of this
State shall be vested in a Supreme Court,
and such inferior courts as the Legislature
may from time to lime order and establish,
does not seem to have entered info Judge
Cooley's head, and, therefore, must be
wrong. For nobody would suspect the
Judge of being wrdtag. And the
idea, too, that the Legislature should
undertake to remedy the vexatious,
and to the State, costly conflicts of
jurisdiction that have constantly arisen
between the courts for want of law pro
perly defining the same—so that judges
claiming to have equal jurisdic ion could
not interfere with the acts of one another
and set them aside at pleasure—is some
thing that evidently confl cts with Judge
Cooley's notion of right. This matter of
contention and the law's delay seems to
please him. if not the people; and he evi
dently thinks they have no right to have
such a lamentable farce in the courts
remedied, if the remedy conflicts with the
interest ot the Sixth District Court, which
iu fact is JudgeCooley. It is to be hoped,
however, that if the Supreme Court, in its
wisdom, should conclude to clash against
the "opinion" of this most learned judge
by deciding that the iaw establishing the
Eighth Court is valid, that he will ac
knowledge there is something of the court
left, and respect it accordingly.
DEATH OF GENERAL THOMAS.
The telegraph yesterday announced the
death, by apoplexy, at San Francisco, of
this brave defender of our flag in many
Lard fought field? in the late war.
Major General George H. T'homa? was
born in X lrgiuiu, from which State he was
appointed to the Military Academy at
West Point. He first entered the army as
second lieutenant of the third artillery,
on the first ot July, 1840.
When the clouds of civil war hung over
the couutry in 1861. this brave officer,
noble patriot and pure-minded man re
fused to be seduced from his allegiance by
the specious considerations that influenced
so many ot the officers of Southern birth,
ana he unhesitatingly espoused the cause
of the Union in which he remained a
staunch defender to the end.
His first exploit of note was at Mill
Spring, in Wayne county, Tennessee,
where he defeated a force of Confederates
five thousand strong, commanded by
General Crittenden, who had just super
seded Zollicoffer. General Thomas had
himself been ordered to supersede Gen
eral Shoepf, on the seventeenth January,
1SG2, and had scarcely done so when he
was furioudy attacked by the enemy,
who were repulsed, after a vigorous con
flict. with the loss of the popular
General ZoIIicoffer. This gallant action
first attracted the attention of the
country toward General Thomas/
and inspired a confidence in his
ability, judgment and bravery, which
every subsequent event of his honorable
career only served to confirm. He was
one of Rosecrans' most efficient command
ers at the hard fought battle of Stone
River, on the thirty-first December, 1862.
Wherever the name ot Thomas appears in
the history of the conflict it is always with
honor and the signal of success. His last
great warlike exploit was the battle of
Nashville, where he shattered Hood's
army, cheered the whole loyal population
of the country, and compelled the admira
tion of President Lincoln, who had pre
viously disapproved of some of his plans
of campaign. "Y'ou were right, and I was
wrong," wrote the great man to his suc
cessful general.
Near the close of the war, on the fif
teenth ot December, 1864, President Lin
coln conferred upon him the rank of Major
General in the regular army, which he
held till his death. Recently he was
transferred from the command of the de
partment comprising Tennessee, Ken
tucky, etc., to California.
General Thomas is described by those
who knew him as a man of fine physical
appearance, above th^average height and
ON CAEONDELET STREET
For the last two days affairs have been
very dull iu Carondelet street. The prin
cipal activity is displayed in State war
rants. which have run up to 95J. At, this
point it does not seem as it much more is
to be got out of them, aud yet they are
freely taken up at that figure. The rise
has been so rapid and so great, that it has
amazed many of the operators, and dis
gusted others who hid madt haste to sell
in the neighborhood cf 80. One well
known Si. Charles street broker is iu a
good deal of tribulation because he missed
making an extra §20,000 by selling at 70.
Pneumatic stock was in a state of col
lapse yesterday. Early in the morning

some active brokers were trying to get Olf

officers, kindly toward his men and terrible
only to the enemies of his country.
that a lamentable accident had happened
the night before—in fact, that one of the
famous air tanks had exploded, and made
a great smash of a good many 11 utering
hopes and promises. We don't know,
however, that this ought to create despond
ency. Other things than pneumatic air
tanks frequently burst. Steamboat boilers
burst very often, and yet we do not despair
of steamboats. Banks burst, and yet we
establish other banks. We trust, there
fore, that the panic in pneumatic stock
will subside. The holders may yet become
great capitalists, and live to see a thousand
mrial cars rushing nmleless through the
streets of every city in the laud.
, ,
Petroleum stock seems to be almost as
badly off as pneumatic. It3 course is daily
downward, as the prospect for the expect
ed State aid grows vague and dim. It is a
pity that so many fond anticipations
should be dashed; so many bright hopes
darkened; so many visions dispelled; so
many chateaux en Espagne demolished
from "turret to foundation stone,'- simply
for lack of a flourish of the Executive
pen.
Ship Island was very firm yesterday, but
buyers aud sellers came pretty close to
gether. The stock was ottered at 192J,
and bid for at 100. The President of^the
company, Mr. George F. Brott, has return
ed to the city, and it is believed that he
has been very successful in accomplishing
.he objects for which lie visited the
North.
Slaughterhouse fell off slightly yester
day. It was sold on Saturday at '22(a 22\,
and yesterday at 21'. The decline is at
tributed to the delay of the Supreme Court
in rendering a decision ia the pending
case.
Gold was a trifle firmer yesterday, rulio,
in New York at 111
the publication of Mr. Boutwell's April
programme would have the effect of stiff
ening the market, but this view seems to
have been incorrect. Perhaps any effect
ot that nature is more than compensated
by the anticipation of 5-27,000.000 of gold
interest to be disbursed by the government
on the first ot May.
The following, iu relation to Southern
securities, is from the New York Herald of
