Jj* The Journal of Commerce says it is M not
accustomed to shrink because of close quarters,"
and yet consumes half a column in evading our
test question. That paper had selected Brass
Kettles, Loaf S.igar, and Linseed Oil as three
articles on which the present Tariff i nposcs a tax
of some fifty per cent, on the American consumer.
We disputed this assumption, and aeked the Jour,
nal to "be good enough to state how much higher
these articles are than they were before the pre.
sent Tariff was imposed." Here is a question
easily answered by referring to the Journal's own
files. But no?that would upset its whoie argu?
ment, and so the Journal refuses to answer at all,
but goes on to figure up that all these articles
might be cheaper in the absence of a Tariff. Of
course, it is easy to say this, and even to asseit,
as the Journal in effect does, that, in the absence
of a Tariff, we might have abundance of good
Loaf Sugar at?ve cents a pound. But what na?
tion in the world now obtains its Sugar from
abroad at this rate ? Tell us!
The Journal reiterates that Linseed Oil might
alio be bought 25 cents a gallon and Brass Kettles
L2 cents a pound cheaper, in the face of a public
flipoeurc of its mistatcmcnts of the price of Ket?
tles. Why, then, were they never half so much
cheaper? The Journal might just as well have
claimed a saving of the whole as of only half the
cost of these articles, if the Tariff were taken off.
The 'lastcard'of Loco-Focoism is to stir up
a fetid between the Farmer and the Manufacturer.
To this end, the Journal asHcrts that the Tariff is
entirely Protective to the latter at the expense of
the former?as though the farmers could be duped
by Puch trash. It pretends not to sec how a Pro?
tective duty increases the price of raw materials,
(which are the product of simple, uncombined
Labor, without requiring any great accumulation
of Capital,) while it diminishes the cost of Manu?
factures, which can be made cheaper and cheap,
er a? the business becomes older, the demand
steadier and the market more extensive. All this
we have explained again and again, yet the Jour?
nal, never attempting to refute it, always pretends
not to see our explanation, and discovers its
mare's-nest over again at every new point in the
The Journal insinuates, without asserting, that
Linseed is admitted free of duty; yet such is not
the fact. It is charged o per cent. Docs the
Journal wish it higher ? We certainly have not j
the least objection. If it were an article of any
importance to the producers?if it were one which
is produced for its own Bake, so that the produc?
tion would be increased by increasing the duty?
we would urge it. But the assumption of the
Journal that the Farmers are only bcnefittcd by
duties on Agricultural products, while they are
injured by that fostering of Manufactures which
affords them their best and principal markets, is
worthy only of The Plebeian and the bar-room
demagogues whose importance and influence de- J
pend upon their success in inflaming one class )
of Society against another. It is not worthy of
a journal in the position of the Journal of Com

is wholly unwarranted. Hear whnl the York

" We announce the result of the receut election for mem?

The Democratic candidate, Dr.Alkxanpmi SMALL, has

We perceive that some of our Democratic contemporaries
Lave been misled as to the political character of the success?
ful eaudidate for Congress iu this District, and class him
among the Democratic members elected. We hope the)
will correct the eiror, as the Democracy of York entirely
repudiate him. The Federal organs of tins District, during
the late campaign, made authorized sta'ements of the seuti
menu of D.'. Nks, and they were sumcieutlv anti-Demo?
cratic to secure the whole Federal vote of the District, with
she exception of about oue di>7Cu peraoual fiiend^of Dr Small.
The Federalists elected him, and we beg that they be per
muted to take hitn wholly aud solely, to themselves. He
has cast himself \Mo the arms of Federalism?ther- let him
repose. \W msut upou bavins: it understood, clearly and
unequivocally, by Democratic F.ditors here and elsewtiere,

that the Democracy of the 15th Congressional District have
no affinity with him.

It does seem tough, when a State has been so gal?

of our late victory there mainly from Loco-Foco
" One of the Whig journals proposes a division of the
Whig party from th* Abolitiouis?, on the ground that

So says the last Evening Post. Will the Post

From Africa.?By the- arrival at Philadelphia
j of the schooner Kathleen, Capt. Taylor, we have

j communicated by our Philadelphia correspondent.
I A considerable British squadron was constantly on the

I extensively, and very few captures made.
Tin I'. S. Gazette lixs learned from Cap'. T.ivlor that

Abolition Meeting at FiszmL Hall?The
Abohttonists held a meeting at Fancuil Hall
Boston, on the evening of the 17th. The Boston
Advertiser says:
?? The C?tre Of attraction, and the principal speaker, was
Mr. Buney, the candidate of the ? Liberty > partv for the

Laie from Canton?
Bv the arrival of the ship Paul Jones at this
port last evening, we are in possession of Canton
papers of the date of 17th June, which is con
stderably later than previous advices. For the
Marine intelligence we refer to that department
of our paper. We learn from the Canton Press
that the Imperial Commissioner, Keing, was to
have met the English Commissioner at Hong
Kong on the 10th of June for the exchanging ol
(he ratification of the Treaty, but that he failed
In meet at the time appointed : and it was ru
mored that Kdng was about to insist upon meet?
ing Her Majesty's Plenipotentiary some where
mid-way between Hong-Kong and Canton. He
was at Canton on the 4th. In Hong-Kong even
thing was prepared for the reception of the Im?
perial Commissioner. A spacious hall had been
erected for the exchange of the important docu?
ments ; and preparations for a splendid entertain?
ment were in progress.
On the 11th of June the Roman Catholic
Church of Hong-Kong was opened for public
worship, and the' ceremony of consecrating the
Church was performed by the Prefect Apostolic
of the Roman Catholic Mission ; and donations
were received to the amount of ?6,012 from
English, Portuguese and Spanish gentlemen.
The export of Tea from China to England
in the month of May, 1843, was:?Of Green,
1.891,131 lbs.; and of Black, 4,061,956 lbs.?
And the total amount from the 1st July, 1842, to
31st May, 1343, was 46,201,251 lbs.
There was considerable sickness at Hong-Kono;.
particularly in the Garrison and among the ship?
ping in the harbor.
Fair at Niblo's.?Among the useful articles
now exhibiting at this Fair we notice a large and
beautiful Church Bell, manufactured by An?
drew Meneelv, West Troy, N. Y. The Bell is
not only a beautiful specimen of workmanship, but
it is likewise remarkable for the richness and vol?
ume of its tones. It has also a Cast Iron Yoke,
with a moveable arm or journal, which is entirely
original and of great usefulness. Upon the whole,
we have seen nothing equal to it. and we take
pleasure in recommending these Bells to churches
and public institutions. From the same factoiy, we also no?
tice a Town Clock, with dead heat escapement, which we
think possesses decided merit.
We noticed yesterday a bundle of Cotton Batting, put np
in rolls by a machine invented by Mr. Kellogg, of New
Hartford. By this useful machine, any Cotton Ticker aud
Lipper can be set to work aud paper its own bats, and by
taking an endless sheet or roll of paper, it is wound up with
the bat of cotton like a roll of carpet to any size required.
FaiRBanrs's Patent Platform Scales deserve the at?
tention of all who have occasion to use any thing of the kind
The manufactuie of these Balauces is brought to a very
great degree of perfection, and their adoption on all the prin?
cipal Transportation Lines in the United States, and in the
best warehouses in England and this country, is the best evi?
dence of ?Vii accuracy and superiority. They are manu
actured only by E. St T. Fairbanks & Co., the patentees, at
St. Johusbury, VC, at Pittsburg, Pa. and Liverpool, Eng?
land. They are for sale by Edward Field, 1 Platt-street,
I New-York.
The Great Western and Princeton.?This I
1 race, if it may be called such, came off yesterday
afternoon, in the presence of a large crowd assem?
bled on the Battery. The Great Western first
came in sight, emerging from the Must River, and
slowly unrolled her canvass to the breeze. As
she moved past the Battery, she looked as if con?
scious she was entering on too grave and serious
an undertaking, to engage in a frivolous run down
the Bay. Many a warm and generous wish fol?
lowed her, as she floated away. She is a noble
ship, and has won the confidence, and indeed the
affection of all. Through calm and storm?amid disasters
and Wiecks of other vessels, she 1ns held her uniform way,
faithfully preserving all who have committed themselves to
her Cure. In a few minutes the Princeton .-hot out from the
Hudson, showing no paddle wheels or pipe, and moving as
if carried along by a swift current alone. As she passed I
Castle Garden, she was greeted with a shout?and no won- j
dert for in the clear aunlight her beautiful model and long
taper masts presented one of the finest specimens uf ship ar?
chitecture we have ever seen. The Great Western appa?
rently waited her approach, when they mored oft together.
The Princeton h Id her own, altogether beyond our expecta?
tions; for she had not a vag of canvass up, while the Gieat
Western thiew out sheet after sheet. On such a smooth
sea, with the wind fr.ir abeam, her canvass alone must have
taken her five or sir knots an hour. If the Great "Western
did her best, put them on equal footing, and the Princeton I
will undoubtedly outsail her. She certainly proves the
practicability of the ' Submerged Propeller. Perhaps we
an- not able to judge, but the Princeton did not seem in per?
fect trim. Her bow dipped too much.
[LT The National Guards from Easton, Pa., i
Capt. Yohe, leave here tins morning at 9 o'clock

terday at 9 o'clock they visited the Arsenal on the

Storms and his Staff, in a manner which did
them much credit. They were then escorted bv
! the Third Company National Guards, Captain
Mount, to Castle Garden, and taken on board the
United States ship North Carolina lying off in
the Bay. and partook of a collation with the offi?
cers. After which they visited Governor's Island
and were received by the garrison with military
honor. In the afternoon a splendid dinner was
given them by the Third Company N. Guards
at the Apollo Saloon.

Rksiduk of the Da.ho Robbery.?As the readers ofthe
daily papere will remember John P. Darg, of Arkansas,
when in this city some four or five years a?;o, was robbed ol
between $3,000 and $9,000 by his servant for life, a colored
man named Tom Hughes, who tied, was secreted for some
time and finally arrested, convicted and sent to the State
Prison for two years for the theft. As several 1 irge sums of
monev were obtained.from and found ou other persons, which
they finally surrendered over, they were arrested aud in?
dicted .as accessaries after the fact, but none of them were
convicted?all ol them, four in number, asserting that they
recovered the money only to restore it to its owner, for the
purpose of procuring the" liberation from Harvey of Tom
Hnghes, the person who stole it.
A colored man, named William Henry Clark, who also
wu indicted with the other four, fled, and was not arrested;
but long afterward returned to this city. On Tuesday night
this Clark, while practicing"sparring at a match in Chapel
street, had his coat 3tolen by a colored man named Isaac
Jacklyn, and, going to the Police, told Officers St-ikely,
Cockefaire and Freame of his loss; stating to them that
there were $1,500 in bills sewed up in the collar of his coat,
to inducp them to recover it. They arrested Jacklyn, and
recovered the coat?but found uo money in the collar, nor
did it appear that any had ever been there. The result was
that Jacklvn was committed for stealing the coat, and Clark
held to bail in $1,00,0 to answer as an accessory after the
fact for the larceny of Darg's money,?Mr. D. C Pall be?
coming his bail.

great fidelity and sound judgement. If. consists
' almost wholly of the author's own words, and
embraces those parts which arc of most promu

Ms. Ryan, -vne of the Commissioners of Illinois, came

of the holders of the Canal bond*, including Messrs Hopei
Co., Messrs. Rothschild, Me.urs. Baring, Brothers Si Co.
and Messrs. Maguire, Jardine & Co., agree to advance to Il?
linois I2j per ceuu on the amouuX of Canal bonds they hold,
provided an agent sent out by them shall verify all the sute
meats of the Commissioners: that is, that the Canal debt
does not exceed ?,6,000,000; that tile cost of completion will
not exceed $l,til'.0,000, and that it will be completed in thrw
years; that the. estimate of its aau U3l income would be at
least sufficient, to meet the principal and interest of the loan
of $ 1,600,00ft, and that the terms of the proposed trust detdi
shall be satisfactory. It is also stipulated that the* Governor

We noticed yesterday the run upon the Farmers' Bank at
Warwick, Orange County, in this Stau>, aud mentioned ?V
fact of the protested bills being promptly paid at Albany.
So far as the community is concerned, they are perfectly safe
in taking the bills, as they are secured by State atocks in the
hands of the Comptroller. The. difficulty is with the
Brokers anil the owner: the laXter requiring a shave of one
half per c-nt. on all the. bills. The only person known to
the public as having any thing to do with this Bank is a Mr
M. W. McChesney, who at present, it is said, resides at
Brooklyn. His name is signed on the bills as Cashier,and
that of II. B. Lord as President. We are not acquainted
with the latter gentleman, but we are informed that he is an
industrious carman residing at 256 Madison-street, and in ?II
probability never saw Warwick in his life. It is but fur,
however, to state, that over the door of a miull country store
at Warw ick is placed a sign with the w< >rd BANK upon it,
hut, with the.exception of a single note discounted some time
in the month of July or August last, We believe no banking
business was ever transacted in the p'iace. This note wm
drawn nt 60 days to [he order of a very respectable mechaaic
of the place, Mr. William Crissy, for the. sum of rightw
and three-quarter cents! and was c ashed by Mr. Cowdnrj
who is the accredited agent of the. Biauk. The only thnij
which appear? to have been wrong about thin discount \c1?
the fact of its having been discount id w ithout going before
