Proiu the Chioajo Brpuhlir-cas Listening to the everlasting grumbling of tbe frct-trmle theorists, one would be lei to believe tl.at the policy of protection had never yet accomplished anj -thing either temporarily or permanently for the good of the country, nor ever could. Nevertue.le.s3, whenever we revert to the history of legislation, from the foundation of the Union until now, we dad abundant proofs of the va-t advantages which the United States have derived from high tariff enactments. For instance, if any one will bo at the trouble to examine the official report of James Guthrio, President rierce'B Secretary of the Treasury, as made for the fiscal year 1814-45, the following very signifi cant statement will be found: "1 et it bo considered that we manufacture all our furniture, a'.l our carringrs waiorf, steam-engines, luai Inncry for our factories and machine-shop, most of our leather ami shoes, hoots, hats, door butts and liolts of all descriptions, bells, balances, buckles, brads, wood-sawn, horse-cards, cairors, curtain pins, curtain buuds, met it cocks, Jack screws, curry-combs, coal-nods, candlesticks, (fas fittings and burners, coiree-mllls, caldrons, heavy i dge-ioois, hay and manure forks, gimlets, hat aa 1 oat wardrobe-hooks, harrows of all kinds, hoes, 1 oilow-ware, planes, ploughs, sad-irons, tailors' Irons, door-knobs, furniture-knobs, brass kettles, locks of 1 11 kinds, iron latches, Hues, lanterns, lamps, levels, lead, cut nails, clout nulls, plus, pumps, punches, pokers, sand-paper, rulers, Iron and copper rivets, ropes, rakes, oil stones, wrought-lron spikes, wood-i-aws, door-springs, wiudotv-sprlngs, Bteelvard, t-calea of all descriptions, steel and brass scales, trowels of a'.l descriptions, spoons of all descriptions, thermometers, tacks, vises or all descriptions, axes, wrenches of all descriptions, Iron, brass and copper wire, with a long list of other articles, to the exclu sion of the like articles from other countries." This is the more valuable as being Demo cratic, free trade, admissions and testimony. What a profuse variety of the neoessaries of life does the foregoing paragraph represent as produced by home industry for home rise, with a geodish margin for exportation to for eign countries! "What a vast number of laborers, artisans, and other employes must earn a livelihood by the fabrication of such a numerous list of articles, entering into dailv consumption in all parts of our widely-ex tended country! What a contrast doe3 such a diversity of productive forces and internal resources oner to the pinched wants and call ing insufficiency of the days which tried f i 1 1 . . i -. . , .. ixiKuo noma me aays oi ine lievoiutionary era, when our patriotio forefathers marcha 1 barefoot through snows, leavins benini bloody tracks! What an advantage it must le to be thus independent of foreign nations to be thus able to retain within onr own bor ders the vast sums that otherwise would go abroad to purchase and pay for indispensable articles oi constant use; to thus utilize our own immense stores of coal, iron, copper, and other metals and minerals! "What a bless ing it must be to the farmer to have raised tip, almost at his doors, at least within the boundaries of his own countrv. such a Dro digious number of customers persons who proauce notning ne grows, and who. while consuming his crops at prices which leave a handsome margin for profit, in General, heir. supply him with needed commodities, imple ments, and utensils at a cost which, as the years move on, gradually progresses more ana more nearly to the cost of the raw mate rial. Here the free trader frowns and says "No," dogmatically and emphatically. To his eyes there is no real, healthful, genuine prosperity in a system which creates and fosters such results. I he free trader would repeal the laws which have made such surroundings practicable, and let in upon us a flood of foreign products to be purchased for a season at lower prices than now; and then, when the nres oi our lurnaces nave been extinguished; our forges enforced into silence; our machine shops rendered unprofitable; our mines left to daikness, solitude, and ruin, and the laborers who therein found employment and the means of subsistence dispersed in all directions, to till the soil or. crowd the avenues of other occupations; and we left, as a people, helpless before .the grinding exac tions of transatlantic monopolists, who will not buy five per cent, of our annual grain crop, and not any of our turnips, potatoes, beans, and other bulky products of the soil formerly so profitable thus, we say, the free- c icaujr WW luauguraie a nurricane of hand-clapiiines over the Paradise of hia Utopian imagination, thus roduced to prao- ( i n M 'I. 1 i. . . .

The Honorable Secre tary of tbe Treasury sitting at Washington surrounded by huge mountains of green backs and other papyrus currency, is sur prised by the receipt of a box from San Fran cisco, upon opening which he discovers to his horror drie,d snakes and centipedes, and flies and bugs, which, having been entered as drugs and medicines at the San Francisco Cubtom House, have so puzzled the Collector of that port that he has sent on these specimens of an entomological pharma copefia to Mr. Bout well, and has asked for instructions as to the legal ity of admitting such frightful poisons into the country at all. One might imagine, from this fastidious reluc tance, that the learned leeches of this en lightened land never gave nasty doses and never "exhibited" anything in the least de gree poisonous.. It is highly disgusting, of course, for a Central Flowery doctor to use dried flies; but we appeal to all who have been tormented by a cantharides blister to say whether dried flies are such a medical novelty after all. Tincture of centipedes isnt any worse, we should suppose, than even a homoeopathic dose of rattlesnake poison. Hugs look bad in print; but how many infants have taken cochineal for that distressing juvenile affliction, the whooping cough? And as for nastiness, if there be any. thing furnished by the Chinese pharmacolo gists nastier than castor oil, epsom salts tincture of rhubarb, and four html died and forty-four other tinctures which we could name, many of which, for our sins, when in no condition for self-de-tense, we have been compelled to swallow then all we tan say is that, if prostrated by anything likely to render ns incoherent or speechless, we shall leave pinned upon our pillow a written direction "not to call in a Chinese doctor, under anv cir cuniKtances." I'niuektionably it is very absurd for John Chinaman to fancy that he can ,b9 cured of an illness by taking bugs, and snakes, and centipedes; but how long is it since respecta ble and highly civilized doctors of our own had full faith(or pretended to hive) in simi lar absurdities? Read, for instance, the ac count in Macaulay's history of the treatment to which, in his last hours, poor Charles tha Hecond was subjected his fixed taoth forced open that a salt extracted iron dead men's bones might be administered to him. Heal any old book of medioal practice, and bob what monstrous mosses our ailiug grand parents were compelled to swa11ov. Indeed, we have ourselves seen a prescription for a bolns written by a highly respectable physi cian still living (unless he has been taking hs own medicine; which contained a dozen in gredients, two-thirds of which must have been pernicious or inert. Bead the fun with which Dr. Holmes, only the other day. enlivened the annual dinner of the Mass. Med. Soc. the treatment by which Kip Van Winkle, M. D.. didn't cure the Squire: The Doctor sent for double quick ho came; A nt. Tart, nraii. thto, and repeat fie same If no, et cetera. Third day nothing new ; Percussed his thorax set him cussing too l.utig fever threatening something of the sort Out with the lancet let hlra bleed a quirt Ten letches next then b'i.stcrs to his sidii Ten grains of calomel just then he died." Does the reader suppose that Dr. Lieu Chi Fum can do anything more miserably absurd than that ? We do not kuow how it may bo in China, but wo do know that empiricism iu our own enlightened land has been carried so far that even the professional associates of those whom it would be high heresy to c ill quacks have protested, in prose and versa, against any nioro blind and blundering exneri ments. Look at the innumerable bottles, iars. gallipots, and drawers of a druggist's shop and then remember that one of the most venerable physicians of Boston declares as the result of his observation and experience that tuere are no more than two articles of the vv'teria midka of the precise operation of w nicn we know anj thing with the least cer tainty. Yet, until the infiuitesimal dosos of the homu'opatbists came to amuse us, our physicians (with some praiseworthy excep tions; went on with thoir dosing and drug ging and drenching with their emetic3 and purgatives and venesections aud blistering and salivations the patients dying or getting better according to their luck aud the strength of their constitutions. Look at the way, for example, in which typhus was treated imrty years ago. rresu air was excluded from the sick chamber: the paor patient was denied cold water, the very thin" wmcu ue needed most; ine main reliance was upon persistent doses of mercury, when, in point of fact, the siok man wanted nothing but fresh air, plenty of water, and the most careful nursing at the crisis. Of course, this heroic and horrible treatment has become pretty nearly obsolete, but it is not so long it. .. i j i v mce mat we can anord to laugu or sneer at Dr. Chinaman's medical notions. And whila the people of this country continue to swallow every year thousands of bushels of patent pills and hogsheads without number of cheap (iTlf tnvnu nailrl 'tK:ffAia ' 4-.-. u r iL. v .... v. unvoin, t,v LUg 1 1 1 1 Li Ul tUUlL own insides and the exceeding emolument of unmitigated quacks, we respectfully sucrcrest that it does not become us to oppose any ob- Biucie io me importation oi tne medical snakes, flies, bugs, aud contipedes of the PEACE OR WAR IN EUROPE ? from the N. Y. Time. There is nothingmoreproductiveof eanarih than a great international quarrel. It be comes necessary, therefore, at a juncture like luopcooui, iuwh me European telegrams very carefally, and reject that very recog nizable class which is the mere expression of current and idle rumor. It is obvious, for example, that very grave significance might have been given to the announcement of an Austro-French alliance, while it is equally obvious that its truth is quite irreconcilable with the later intimation of a strict Austrian neutrality on the question at issue between France on the one side and Spaib and Prussia on the other. The, moat noticeable feature in the comments by the French press on the situation is-the strong sufgestion of the characteristic vein of "Bombastes." The Libtrte, under the management of M. de Girardin, was never very moderate in its tone toward Prussia, but under the new proprietorship it appears determined to outdo its contemporaries in the loudness of its threats and the marvel lous extravagance of its demands. A "guar antee not to interfere in the affairs of other nations" would probably be a very desirable thing to extort from all the great powers of Europe; but it is difficult to see why Prussia alone should be asked to furnish it, and still more difficult to understand the logical con nection between a seizure of the Rhenish frontiers at any cost, and a remonstrance against the accession of a Hohenzollern to the throne of Spain. Talk like that indulged in by the Liberte can onlv be tnlrn na o,nirt. cant either of a very unhealthy sta t of public sentiment, which seizes the opportunity to fan inrn n ft . bUD smouldering ashes of national animosity, or of a smarting sense of political humiliation which burns to have for revenge. The attitude maintained by Prussia, whether warranted by the circum stances or not, shows no evidence of that swagger ana bluster which have been so freely exhibited in France. The position taken by the Cabinet nf iwUn ;a intelligible and consistent Th c 1 . w iau Ul nnce Leopold being a member of what is mcic.jr a junior Becuon oi tne junior branch of a house from whie.h th pmaU;on - i family have sprung, is made the occasion for disclaiming any direct responsibility for his candidature. The onus of his AWtb.n So ar with the representatives of the Spanish peo ple, and the significant addition iu made that should the Cortes elect a Hohnnntlo n,.,,., sia will support him. ' inere is no disguising the fact that if this declaration has been corrae.tlw rm.nrtn t auu ii mo present, temper oi the French gov ernment aud people continue, it means war It is difficult to beliAvA that j:u - vjijau.au leaders did not anticipate the opposition of France to their newly-selected candidate and it is probable that in resolntnlir v,..i.;.' . -J IU1- ward his claims, they are acting in pursuance of a prearranged programme. In either case, the responsibility of war, should war arise, has been left with France. It may be assumed that Prussia will n,io si. refusing to acknowledge that her posi tion on the question constitutes, in anv sense, a casus belli. It is, at the same time, oertain that any movement which Franca mav mskn t frontier in pursuance of a self -elected paiioy ui icmuuwou wouia nna tne Confederation inarms. The rumor of an nllinn Spain and Prussia must be received with cuuuojj, aa u is me oovious policy of the lat ter power to keeD clear of Anv nr,;.. . . , . j " " na initia tive in setting up German prince in the peninsuia. lue iNoiin uermun States will be found united. irresneetiv of u disablement, to repel any pretensions ou tbe xiart of France to dictate their nation il policy. Count ' Bismarck is too wily a diplo matist, and has too thorough a knowledge of his countrymen, to permit Prussia to i?cnpy a position in which she would appear to chnllengv opposition, and needlessly to excite tilflim. It is altogether premature to specu late upon the proportions which an European, struggle might assume if entered upon at the present moment. Tbe contingencies are too bttmeronsby which the awpect of the question may be materially changed, to admit of any suth prognostications. The statesmen who control the springs of the quarrel may them selves be still uncertain as to the course.of that public opinion and international senti ment which play so important a part in modern European politics, and it is certain that even without some such decided indica tion of national sentiment among the nations most immediately concerned, there will bo abundant opportunities fouad to avert hos tilities. A BARON FOR GOVERNOH. From tlit Wilmington lcl ) Ctinmf trial. 'lhe Democratic candidate for Governor will, of course, be formally nominated by the State Convention of that party, but he h is long since been agreed upon. The choice has been mude by the Sanfsbury brother.. Lli. Gotc. and 'illard. and has fallen upon their brother-in-law, Mr. James Ponder, a wealthy gentleman of Sussex county. This near rela tionship to the Saulsbury family presumed to be Mr. Ponder s primary and conclusive qualification, and considering the fart that he was selected for the place many years ago by his brothers-in-law, it is fair to presume that he will serve their political purpose quite as fully as they could serve themselves, though, as the people of Delaware can testify, they are all adepts at that. Concerning Mr. Ponder we have, ns yet. no great amount of information, except that among the working people, aud especially the tax-payers of his own county, he is variously known as "Lord Ponder," and the "Baron of Broadkin," his tastes being of the feudal sort, and his progress in the monopoly of real estate resembling that of the English land owners. AVe should infer from this that, if he is not one of the pure aristocracy, ho is at least the choice of that particularly exclusive circle, his own relatives, aud will be, most decidedly, the real candidate of a very refined and narrow class. The party machinery to formally state to the Democracy that Mr. Ponder is their una nimous choice for Governor has not yet been set publicly in operational Dover,' but will be very soon. The Three Brothers will promptly be heard from, and the luxurious Baron will appear on the scerje of action, in a few week.-., to state his aristocratic claims to the succession of his brother-in-law in the government of the people of Delaware. As he is the first of his name in the Saulsbury dynasty, he aspires to rule, of course, as James the First, and this would be a gratify ing ascent from the titles he now enjoys. As he cannot be elected, however, by the same authority that nominates him, we fear his lordship will not be acceptable to the people, and that he may still have to be content with tbe honors of his present baronial position, and make up his mind to dispense patron age over it, rather than from the seat now filled by bis fraternal director, the Governor of Delaware, Govo the First ami last. So may it be. FIGHTING RESOURCES OF THE EURO PEAN POWERS. I'rcmthe N. T. Herald. "To cook a hare catch one" 13 nu ancient and trite but very practical recommendation. To get up a war is easy enough, but to carry on a war is another thing. Neither indi viduals nor communities will long go about through the world "blue moulded," like Pat at Donnybrook Fair, "for want of a batin'," without being accommodated first or last. Such seems to be precisely the state of mind that Prussia has reached with her enormous military establishment, and such, too, the humor of France laving down tha law tn nil Europe. But how are they and their allies. oh either side, prepared for the issue ? Ay, there's the rub. . France, the military Colossus of the West, has, according to the latest and most accu rate advices, under the new laws recently carried into effect, 414,032 soldiers on the peace footing, (i47,271 of a field army, or 1,50,000 men in all for her entire ordinary war strength. Of these 370,000 men are ready to march at the tap of the drum on the outbreak of hostilities . Austria ml,;v . ...... nu,vU Ull rectly or incorrectly, is regarded as the inevi table ally of France, has 27is,470 men on the peace establishment, 8utf,7O0 of a war strength, or ;(M),000 fully prepared to move. Could the South German Confederation, or group of States, be secured on the same side, they have (!,5I0 men on the peace or 184,40(5 on the war footing, with 107,000 of these prepared for instant service. Such a coalition would give France the control of 777,000 fighting men at once, with a reserve of l,."!M!,i(K! trained soldiers. On the . other hand. Prussia lma 7n non men on the peace or 1,2(5(5,000 on the war footing, with JiOO.OOO now ready for opera tions on her western frontier. North Ger many, eoint' with Prussia.

France has seriously angered Italy, and the latter is reported to have formed a defensive if not an ofl ensi ve alliance with Prussia. In such case the latter being attacked by France, the Italians, out of a force of 370,721 on a war footing, with l!i7,000 of a reserve, or r7:t,7 l in all, could Bpare possibly 200,000 men to operate on the French frontier or hold a hostile corps in check. The direct and open partici pation of Russia is hardly to be expected unless circumstances should force her into the melee. In that case sha could dispose of about 2.-.0,000 men from about 700,000 com posing her army in Europe, including the Cos sacks. She could take no other course by f amil y alliance, position, and the recollection of Crimean wounds than to aid Prussia. Sweden and Denmark would, if they dared to move at all, have to go in the same direction, with about .'.0,(H.O men. Thus Italv, the Czar and Scandinavia would bring King William :o' Oim men a force that, with South German 'aid would place Lim 4::o,(n. ahead of France' allowing Engbud, lithium, Holland. aal pwii'erland toi renuJu ncmral i protio" dlfflenlt to admit in wioh a universal cnPJct. As for Hpain, l U tlear that, should, she crept the HohcnvoUern prince, she utild cast all the little atvength she has for Prus sia.

Wo -escrve that branch it th.tnbjft for auosr. dy. but may, in the meanwhile, louit: t!iit the French navy is unite eiUtl to sJl th rest of Europe (excepting England combined, in a fighting point of view. Tbe general deduction fi-.Mii this nnsn of far ts is plainly that shorll all Germanv go with Prussia, and the other powers stand aloof, France, even if aided by Austria, would have to make up by du- ipUno. enthusiasm, and j.llantiy for a beavy discrepancy of nmnber. Shonld she. however, lival iu these daja the wild energy of tho revolutionary li loctoiy, which hurled fourteen nrmies against the itm.ding strangers and lumtod them back to their own capital, sho mi jht still reap In sU trinu pis.

Agiiu. ou the other lisnd. should Russia. Italy and Scandi navia, too. be forced ngsinst her. then, in eevd. tho odds w ould be alarming. Sucb. then, are tho military aspects of the case, so far as mere numerical array is con crntd, w ithout considering the revolutionary tlervesccnce now rife all over Western Europe, the great trades union movement, the general drought in Franco and Spain, aud the peculiar condition of finance. Each of these elements mint bo carefully and separately we'ghed, but in the meanwhile the spectacle at this moment presented to the world is an other convincing proof of tho folly, wicked ness, and continual danger of maintaining enoimous standing nrmies in the very centre of Christendom.
