tea ui.a Coflee, iwr the reason that tho?e arti
?lee were in competition with no branch of
American industry, (which, in thftir vocabu
lary, means northarn industry.) that ?hey are
of universal consumption, and. consequently,
that every person would pay tho tax in pro
portion to the quantity ho consumed. We do
not suppose that any one of onr readers is ao
ftolid S3 not to see that these arguments
against the duty make tho strongest possible
demonstration that it would be just and proper
under such a system which makesi commerce
the great source of the support of the Govern
ment.
" Our theory of Government is, that all men
derive an ad vantage from its protection. The
people have created it for that purpose, and
they consent to taxation for the solo end of
refilling that object. Every article of taxa
tion, therefore, which is of universal use, and
the consumption of which is a comfort and ad
vantage to all, is, in an especial degree, prop
erly subjected to its proportionate contribution
to the support of tho Government. The con
trast c>f this proposition is one that has long
been contended for by the North : that no tax
ought to be levied upon any article of com
merce, unless a oariain body of their capital
ist3 can make fortunes out of the exactions of
tho Government In short, tbey claim that
the taxing power of the Government, exercised
in the most odious manner, and to tho ex
tremest extent, shall only be made the maans
of enabling them to exerciso a still more ex
acting and intolerable power of taxation over
tho whole people. Such is tho history and
the ethics of the Protective party, and boreiu

The New Frescocd Boom in the"Capit?l
Extension ?In the Senate Naval Committeo
room of the Ex.ecsion will be f-und a series of
six pictures illustrative of our naval history,
painted by George R. West of this place, viz:
Battle of the Constitution and Grrriero; Per
ry's Victory on Lake Erie ; Cutting oat of Uio
Philadelphia in the port of Tripoli by Dcea
tur ; Violation ?"'f the neutrality laws by Great
Britain in tho destruction of the Privateer
General Arm str ing in the port of F<yal; lin*
gagement of the Bon Homme Richard and
Serapis; and tho Launch of tho Minnesota at
the Navy-Yard.
The space allowed the artist for the execu
tion of these pijtures is too small to do the
subjects justice, considering the naturo of the
paintings and tho point from which they aro
to be viewed ; and the style of the decoration
(P< uireiian) is entirely t<<o gaudy in color to
allow the fine points of the pictures to bo fully
appreciated; but in point of Historical Cor
rectness, nautical accuracy, position of the
vesfcols. details of tho rigging, and color and
effj.t, brdh naval men and artists criticLc

Indian Agent Dodge?Indian Tioubles.
We have information from New Mcxico saying
th.'.t iu the last of November Capt. Dodge, 1'.
S. Agent of the Navajo Indians, wascaptured
by the Gila Apaches, a quasi hostile tribe?
r.nd is now a prisoner among theci. He w&3
hunting, accompanied by a few peons, and
was taken prisoner fifteen miles the other side
of Z ini Frotn the story of one of the escaped
peens. it ii inferred that he is well treated.
Several parties had le'.t Santa Fo to endeavor
to ransom him, if possible He ia sail to be a
eon of tienator Dodge, of Wisconsin.
Not long since, Mr. Bent, of Bent's Fort,
high up on the Arkansas, killel tw > kiawas
in a difficulty with a portion of that tribe.
The Chiens. among whom Bent's Fort is situ
atcd, interfered and protected him. As our
informant was coming Eaat ho met a party of
?00 Kiawas on the Cimerone river, who said
that they were cn the way to attack the Chi
ens and Bent s people.
?,The Political Parson.? For the following
pertinent remarka upon that now so prevalent
genus of (so-called) ministers of the gospel, we
are indebted to a late number of the Boston
Post:
The " political parson" said to every Demo
crat or national W big who attended his church
and paid him for preaching the gospel?" My
politic? is rthqion,. your politics ia ai//, and
therefore it is my duty as a minister of Christ
to preach politics iu tho pulpit, and you are
bound, ns iuv parishioner, to sit quietly in
church Sunday after Sunday and listen to mj
denunciations of your principles, your party
and your candidate for the presidency, and to
pay me besides for abusing you, because this
1* my 'religion.' and 1 am an ambassador for
Christ, and in bis stead I exhort you to be
reconciled to FremontNot as St. Paul
hath it?" now then we are ambassadors for
Christ, as th' ugh God did beseech you by us,
we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled
to God." Such was the blasphemous perver
sion of the commission of heaven made by the
?4 political p8rwms."
Presuming upon the just reverence of the
people for tne pulpit, these political priests
pretended not to see themselves as others saw
them; the mereprTtiians of Fremont, ami not
