The Tariff is In Danger!
So sajT letters from Washington, yet we can?
not believe it. It seems to us impossible that it
should be so, but, on a matter of such vital im?
portance, we dare not rest on our opinion alone.
The following extract from a private letter from
a well informed friend in Congress is corroborated
by many other advices :?
Hoi se of Representatives,)
March li, 1844. $
My Dear Sir?I perceive from The Tribune that
you express the opinion and encourage the people
to believe that there i.s no probability of the passage
of the Tariff bill pending before the House. My
own belief is that the bill will be arrested in the Se?
nate, but many of our friends apprehend more dan?
ger than you seem to suppose. In the first place,
there is no doubt the bill will pass the House. Ii
is ingeniously drawn as u party measure, and Mr.
Van Buren's men are committed to go for it. In
framing the bill, McKay was in constant consulta
lion with Wright, Benton and others; and one of ?
the Committee informs me there is no doubt that
Mr. Wright is ihe principal author of the Report.
Its passage is the price stipulated to the South for !
the support of Van Buren. The specific Duties on -t
unmanufactured Iron and Sugar are intended to
propitiute Pennsylvania and Louisiana. '
We will suppose the bill to have passed the s
House and reached the Senate. Mr. \\ risht will ,
vote for it, and possibly the Senators from Pennsyl?
vania. Suppose three or four Southern Whigs ?
should desert us in this extremity?what would Be <
the result ? 1 declare to you my belief that the ma- i
jority in the Senate will stand united mid compact
in oppo.-ition to the bill. At the same time, the '
possibility of danger is sufficient to justify some j
alarm : and instead of encouraging a sense of secu?
rity, you should call upon the people to rally, re?
monstrate and avert the danger. '
We have never intended to favor the impres?
sion that the Tariff would be saved without effort
on the part of the People?we have believed that
it would be saved because the People would rally
around and preserve it. True, it seems to us in?
credible that the Pennsylvania Senators should
vote for this bill, but what will not some men do
for the sake of Party ? And Silas Wright, too,
whose vote was claimed as having passed this
Tariff, which vote was specially approved by one
of Mr. Van Buren's Syracuse Conventions, is now
the grand contriver of destruction to the manu?
factures of Iron, Woolen, Cotton, Salt, &.c. of
our State! What madness of party ! what reck?
lessness of public interest and of National Pros?
perity !
Freemen ! Laborers! Farmers 1 Artisans !
Your vital interests are at stake ! awake 1 arise !
assemble 1 and from every quarter pour in your
petitions to the Senate for the stoppage of this
destructive measure 1 Prepare a petition at once,
ask your neighbors and townsmen to sign, and
despatch it to some Senator at Washington as
soon as it can be got ready! Call on your Van
Buren neighbors who say they arc Tariff men,
and ask them to sign, or remonstrate separately
if they prefer it. The form of the memorial is
not at all material?we throw out the following
as a sample, which you can alter as you think
proper :
To the Senate of the United States :
The undersigned, citizens of -, respect?
fully represent?that since the enactment of the
existing Tariff, the condition of the country has
been steadily and visibly improving, and is now
far better than for some time before the passage
ofthat law?that Labor finds readier employment
and in the average a bett c reward, while there is
on the whole a quicker demand and larger mar?
ket for nearly all the productions of our Home
Industry. This state of things your memorialists
apprehend would be disastrously changed by the
passage of the bill to reduce and transform the
Tariff proposed by the Committee of Ways and
Means of the House of Representatives?where?
fore we earnestly entreat you to arrest and prevent
the passage of the same, or any similar measure,
into a law.
With deep respect and confidence.
Wc remain your fellow citizens.

The Plebeian tells a pretty good story about
a recent visit of the Editor of The Tribune to
Connecticut, and the anxiety of his friends that
j he should not come there to speak any more.
; The point of it, however, is rather duilcd by the
' fact that, while the Plebeian man was writing
! his quiz, the Editor of this paper was in Conncc
! ticut on a second visit, at the urgent request of
j his Political friends, and addressed a lar^e con
course of both parties on the Tariff question at
Watcrbury on Thursday uight. He has now ur?
gent requests to visit other sections as soon as
possible, and hopes to comply with some of them
before Aprii.
Now for a story from our side, which shall
match The Plebeian's fairly, and have the ad
vantage of being true :
We learned yesterday and the day before in
Connecticut that the most effective electioneering
weapons our friends could lind?decidedly better
than our Tariff Speeches?were the Anti-Tariff
Tracts issued Inj The Plebeian. They had been
for sonic time buying up all they could find to
circulate in that State, to unmask the Loco-Foco
professions of half-and-half friendship for Protec?
tion?till they were all at once brought up by
the supply being cut off at the fountain-head?no
more of 1 Plebeian Tract No. 1.' could be got at
the office for love or money ! They tried their
best, but were informed that the edition had run
out, and they didn't think they should print any
more at present!?As the Tract is copyrighted,
our folks could not reprint it, and so a most
flourishing trade was brought to a dead halt!?
We cite the following corroboration from yester?
day's Ne w-Haven Pa IIa d i u m :
As Incident.?While .Michael was at the steam?
boat wharf this morning, selling " Plebeian Tracts
to make young Whi<:s of," a Loco-Foco passenger
got out ofthe ears and inquired the prit e ofthe Jot.
Michael named the sum, when a bargain was struck
lor the whole. The purchaser had no sooner got
possession of them than he stepped to the side of
the wharf and threw them all. into thewa/er, saying,
"They are not just the things to circulate in Con?
necticut" ! We had those facts from a person who
witnessed the whole proceeding. When will our
opponents learn in politics, as well as in every thing
else, "honesty is the best policy"? How con?
temptible do they appear in trying to conceal, until
after the election, their real principles!
Hon. N. I?. TaUmadge.
We have been asked by several friends why
we did^iot take some notice of a recent savage at?
tack on Senator Tallmadge by ? J. W. W.' in
the Courier ij- Enquirer. Our answer has uni?
formly been that wc dislike, extremely to appear
in constant collision with any journal which sails
under the Whig banner, and that we have an abi?
ding conviction that such attacks as this on Mr.
Tullmadgc can do no possible harm except to
the assailants. Wc have differed with Mr. T. as
to the propriety of some of his votes to confirm
what wc regarded as exceptionable nominations
for important offices by Mr. Tyler, but wc never
thought of assailing him therefor as a traitor to
the Whig party. These Tyler appointments pre
sent questions of extreme difficulty, and the cer?
tainty that the rejecting any one will not give us
i better man, but only enable the Executive to
strengthen himself by extending the evidences of
his disposition to reward adhesion, should ever be
considered. Wc can very well see how a good Whig
may say, " Let him have whom he pleases; it is
'hut a few months, and then all can be made
[ right; meantime, the first nomination is proba
'bly quite as good as any future one would be."
We should have voted against some of Mr. Tyler's
appointments, but on grounds very different from
any party consideration.
Mr. Tallmadge has been for six years a Whig
U. S. Senator, and the only representative ofthe
225,000 Whigs of New-York in the most digni?
fied Legislative body in the world. During all
that time, he has been a most able and efficient
advocate of Whig Measures in Congress and
(whenever needed) of Whig Principles before the
People. An ardent personal and political friend
of Henry Clav, he is able and willing to do
as much toward his election as any other man.
Is it wise, is it just, in any journal laboring to se?
cure a Whig triumph to assail such a man ??to
attempt to weaken his influence and excite dis?
trust of his integrity ? Wc think not. Mr. Tall?
madge, wc arc sure, cannot be repelled from do?
ing all within his power for the Good Cause and
its Champion, but the efficiency of his efforts may
be greatly impaired by attacks on him from any
Whig quarter.
[LTThc Worcester Spy contains a long letter
from Mr. Wehster, on the subject of the Annex?
ation of Texas, written in reply to a request front
many citizens of Worcester county, requesting
his views in relation to the matter. He takes
strong ground against the measure.
O* The Whigs of Indiana will have a great
gathering at Logansport, Cass Co. on the 12th of
April, being the Birth-Day of Henry Clay. We
hope to send them good news from Connecticut
to fill the measure of their ardor and confidence.

Importation and Manufacture uf Salt.
The advocates of Free Trade have dwelt, at
different time?, on the subject of the tariff on Salt,
as affecting an article of daily and extensive con?
sumption. To their arguments, attempting to
show that the protective duties to encourage the
manufacture of this important article have en?
hanced the price of Salt brought from foreign
countries, wc have on former occasions replied
that the price has not been increased in conse?
quence of the duties.
Wc arc now enabled to present the following
important statements, relative to the importation
and manufacture of Salt, and the effect produced
on prices, by the increased supply arising from
the competition of our Domestic Manufactured
Salt, which from the inconsiderable quantity made
previous to the last War with Great Britain, has
increased so that it now furnishes one half the
supply for the consumption of the United States.
Comparative prices of Turks' Island Salt for
29 years.?The first table which we give below,
shows the cargo pries of Turk's Island Salt, per
measured bushel (of about 70 lbs.) in the New
York market, on the 1st of December of each
year since the last war?being 29 years.

The average of the above prices from 1315 to
1825, in which latter year the Erie Canal was
opened from Lake Erie to the Hudson River, was
03 cents per bushel, and the duty on importation
20 cents per 5b' lbs. From 182G to 1S30, when
the market for Domestic Salt, in consequence of
our Canals, became greatly extended, the average
price of Turks' Island was 53 cents, although the
duty remained at 2" cents, the same as in the
former period. In 1831, when the duty was re?
duced to 15 cents, the price advanced to 62
cents, when, according to the Free Trade theory,
it should have declined. It is worthy of remark,
that in the same year there was a great falling
off in the previous annual increase of Salt manu
facturcd at the Onondaga Salt Springs in this
State, and the amount paid into the Canal Fund
from the State Duties on Salt was little more
than in 1830. By the Tariff of 1S32, the duty
was reduced to 10 cents per 5b lbs., and by the
Compromise Tariff of 1833 there was a pros?
pective reduction from that rate, until it reached
7 cents and 0 mills per 5G lbs. in 1841, and last?
ly, 20 per cent on Home valuation in July, 1842.
As the present Tariff, which fixes the duty at 8
cents per 5G lbs. went into operation on the 1st
September, L842, the 20 per cent duty lasted only
two months, during which the price of Salt de?
clined to 23? cents per bushel. From 18.32 to
1841, the average price was 39 cents, and the
average duty about 9 cents per 5G lbs. Finally,
ourlast quotations, for December, 16-13, show the
price to have been 30 cents per bushel, a small
advance on the previous year, and the duty was
8 cents per 5G lbs. in both years.
If the price is controlled by the duty levied
on the article, as contended for by the free tra?
ders, wc ask them to compare the price in 1815
With that of 1629, the latter being one half that
of the former while the duty remained the same.
How do the free traders account, fur this ? We
know very well that prices arc affected by the
supply of the article in market, and the latter by
competition, but this does not accord with the
free trade theory. Again, does any one believe
that the price of Salt would have been as low as
it is at present if the article had been admitted
free of duty from 1815 to the present time, and
if the Erie Canal had not. been constructed, as it
would not have been, if Loco-Foco counsels had
prevailed in this State, thus leaving our people
to depend entirely on foreigners for a supply
of this necessary article ? Now, our Onondaga
Salt Springs supply about one-fourth of all the
s ilt consumed in the United States, while nearly
another fourth of the consumption is supplied by
the Salt-Works west of the Alleghany mountains.
During the last War, Salt was sold in the interior
for four dollars a bushel?a heavy burthen on
the consumer, which early and efficient Protec?
tion would have prevented.

The amount of duties paid on the above into
the United States Treasury, exceeded six millions
of dollars.
Onondaga Salt Springs.?The salt manufac?
tured at these Springs, pays a duty to the State
of six cents per bushel, (formerly 12^ cents,) be?
sides a large amount of tolls to the State for
transportation on the Canal. The amount of Salt
Dulles paid into the Canal Fund, from 1517 to
July 18, 1^3o\ was ?2,055,453. Since that
time, and up to January, 1844, there has been
paid into the General Fund of the State, from
this source, (instead of the Canal Fund) about
5875,000 over and above all expenses, which
added to the above, makes .$2,930,458 as the
amount derived by the State from the Salt Duties.
The millions which have been received bv the
State and the United States from duties on salt,
the Free Traders would hive thrown away,
leaving prices probably with little if any reduction
from the old rates, when we were dependent on
foreign countries for supplies of this indispensa?
ble article.

Coarse or Solar Salt. 318,105
Ground or Dairy Salt. 76,531
being an increase of ?27,597 bushels over the pre?
ceding year.
By an Act passed in April, 1543, the State
gives a bounty on Salt when delivered at Tide?
water on the Hudson, or on the Lakes, at Buf?
falo, Oswego, Sec. or on the Ohio and Indiana
Canals. In consequence of this act, 908 943
bushels were delivered at different points last year
entitled to a bounty of ?47,304, but still produc?
ing a gain to the State Revenues of about ?50,
000. Of this quantity of Salt, 536,954 bushels
carne to Tide-Water, against 156,500 bushels last
ye-.r, while in 1334, only 56,890 bushels came to
Tide-Water. The Superintendent of the Salt
Springs says, inhts report, that the system of boun?
ties adopted "has had a most salutary inlluence,
not only in reviving an important branch of in?
dustry, and adding largely to the internal trade of
the State, but has increased its revenues. Na?
ture has been profuse in providing at this point
all the elements for the production of an unlimi?
ted quantity of Salt, and in fact, it would be diffi.
cult to locate these Springs more favorably for
cheapness of production, and where the conven?
iences of transportation to every desirable point,
arc so great as those selected by nature."
"Several establishments (the Superintendent
and Inspector say) have been erected 'or the ex
elusive purpose of drying and grinding Salt ?
From the extensive preparations that are making
for supplj ing this article, which competes so suc?
cessfully in the Eastern markets with the Liver?
pool Sack Salt, wc entertain no doubt that from
one million to one and a quarter million bushels
of Onondaga Salt will be sent to Tide-Water the
corning season/'

Zephyr was bound to Bombay from Canton for a
cargo of opium, and had 5000,000 in specie on
She was taken in the China Sea by pirates and
all hands murdered. I have not heard the parti?
culars about the Anglona, but understand that
all her crew were murdered."
The Z. was sold to an American in Canton,
and the A. to a foreigner.

to be despotic and arbitrary,but are tolerated with
exemplary resignation.

the Broadway Tabernacle on Tuesday evening
next. This is in truth a scientific entertainment,
although wc have our doubts whether the use
made of it will serve to advance the cause of sci?
ence. People generally prefer to laugh rather
than to learn. But here is an opportunity where
tht?y can lannh and learn too, if they will. It
will unquestionably be an amusing entertainment.
We wish the exhibitor success.

Washington, March I?, 1844..
Dear Sir : At last the Wolf is come. To-day
the Texas question was broached. Holmes, of
South Carolina, in opposing a proposition to abol?
ish the Military Academy and dismiss the super?
numerary officers heretofore educated at that in?
stitution, warned the House that we might soon be
involved in a war for the Annexation of Texas. He
said that the British government was watching
our relations with Mexico with a keen eye,
and that we could not effect the annexation
winch he took to be the settled policy of this
' o-ovcrmnent;. without fighting steel to steel. He
adverted also to the great imp utance of having an
efficient force capable of doing the business quick,
before all the pirates of South America could take
' Mexican commissions, and prey upon our com
! merce. He said much more, but it is too late at
j night to enter into further detail Mr. Winthrop of
I Massachusetts, said he couM not suffer th;s
! amazing avowal to pass without notice. He was
called to order by Black, nf Georgia, who you will
recollect moved some weeks ago to tack the ad?
mission of Texas to the Oregon bill. The Speak?
er, of course, decided that Mr. W. was in order.
He then said that in view of the rumors which
were abroad, the declaration of the gentleman
from South Carolina assumed the most serious
character. How did he know that the annexa?
tion of another nation to this Union " was the
settled policy of this Government ?" The peo
pie of the United States did not know it, nor did
this House. But there was too much reason to
believe that a secret and stealthy negotiation was
actually going on. He did not rise to enter into
an argument, but simply to declare that the
scheme referred-to was utterly abhorrent to the
feelings of the people he represented, and big with
danger to this Union. Friendly as he was to the
Military Academy, if it could be made subservi?
ent to such a scheme he would go with its ene?
mies and level it to the ground. The House was
in great commotion, and Holmes and Payne of
Alabama, declared, aside, that the South wanted
the union with Texas,\n\t if they could not have
that, then Texas without the Union. Tiiis, you
may rely upon it, is the determination of the
former nullifying party.
To-morrow a resolution will be offered, calling
upon the President for any correspondence which
has passed on this subject between this and the
Texan Government. It is expected that this
will test, in some degree, if not decisively, the
sense of the House on the whole project.?
.My own opinion is, that this question is to be
carried to the polls in the coming Presidential
Flection. The opponents of Annexation say,
li Let it come in any shape: the sooner the bet?
ter."' Yours, Ajiicus.

We hear (says the Newark Advertiser) of no
dissent from the Compromise from any part of
the State, except Monmouth?where we learn
by the Inquirer that the Tyler and Johnson dem?
ocrats prevail. At their Convention Mr. Ryall,
it is said, advocated the Compromise, but was
opposed by .Messrs. Ilartshornc. Parker and
Thomas E. Combs. Whereupon the Convention
repudiated the Compromise and selected a whole
party ticket. The Whigs, desirous of avoiding
any party feeling or acts in reference to this im?
portant matter, have wisely abstained from any
party selection of a ticket.
The Election for the Convention will be held
throughout the State on Monday.

Vv*A*HiNGTo?f, Thursday, March 11.
In the House of Representatives, to-day, the
Rhode Island question was further discussed dur?
ing the morning hour by Mr. Caleb S.mitii of in.
in a sensible speech in opposition to action upon
the memorial and unqualified condemnation of
Dorrisrn both in principle and in practical opera?
tion. He alluded to the oft-repeatcd outcry
against the old Charter of Rhode Island?of its
being a grant of kingly powers, referring in reply
thereto to the simple historical fact of the charter
. having been drawn up in Rhode Island when a
coloHy, and after having been sent to England
and returned with the sanction of Charles II., of
being adopted by a deliberate vote of the people,
by virtue of which since the Revolution it has re?
mained of binding force as the Constitution adopt?
ed by the people?which there was no evidence
had been repealed or superseded by any Constitu?
tion of a legal majority.
He replied to various arguments of Messrs.
Rathbun and Kennedy, of la., and exhibited
quite to the discomposure of the Locos, Mr. Van
Buren's recorded speeches and votes in the Con?
vention for revising the Constitution of New
York in decided hostility to the principles of uni?
versal suffrage, and to the election by the People
of Justices of the Peace, and in favor of establish?
ing as a requisite qualification for a voter not only
. the working on the highway but his being a house?
holder?the glaring inconsistency of all which,
and the principles now professed by those who
were soon to go into the Presidential contest un
. der his banner, he commented on.
Mr. Harden moved to suspend the rules to of?
