the stranger then went towards Mr

Uars wliicu led from tbo potato patch
into the Itine.
Mrs. Cutts flew into tbe bouso for
lior sunbonnct, to follow tbem j but

rapidly down tbe road.
Tho strong minded woman shouted
after he husband. " You'd bolter ooine

tho wrong way, and carried her words
into tbe potato patch. .
' Sir, said the gentleman to honest
Cutts, " I bsvo a very simple question
to ask you, but I shall have to ask you
in couudenco. I will give you five
dollars if you will promise not to re-
poat my worda until to-morrow."
' Well, eir,"-v replied - Cutts, "I

tbat would make trouble among my
neighbors, I have my bands full, I
can tell you, to keep out of aorapea
now ; but I've dor.e it, snd balnt an

" Hut. sir you needn't reply to my

Cutts knew bis wife's " standing''
loo well to feel very sensitive, and tak

"I will go witb you to look out

" Uooil man," ssld the stranccr,

The boy was sent with tho messogo

Ms'am Catts discovered tho wheru

All tho way homo and far into tbe

Hut Cutis yielded himself up to a
" dumb spirit'' for the night ; and no
measure could induce bim to talk on
any subject, lest tdio should pry tbo
mighty secret out of him.
Ab nit midnight sho woro herself

" You'll never eat a tuor.ud in my

Here was a point giiued.

" Ho wanted somo todur pot,"
replied Cutts, calmly, without looking

A Distinction Wituoot a Dif
ference Rift tbe matter 1o tbo hot
torn, and but littlo difT,erenco la prin
ciple will bo found between tbo free
tradors who aro operating tinder the
specious gu'mo of rovenuo reformers
and the out-and-out repudiatora. As
the Government is situated there can
bo no such issue as free trade for years
to come. We have a national debt on
which the ittereat must ba paid, tl
we do not repudiate it. We cannot
rose tho nocesaary revenuo to pay
this interest without a high tariff ;
sod a high tariff that docs not discrim
inate in favor of American manufac
turer. A tariff levied at a given per
centage on nil imporU without refer
ouce to tbeir charuetor or the condi
tion of the market, would, in many
instances, be one of tbe most oppres
sive measuros that any Government
ever adopted. Even England, with
hor ftee-lrado palaver, would pot ven
ture upon suob a course. Her tariff
discriminates, and Is leviod bo as to
favor ber cwn interests as a nation,
and tbe interest of her citizens meet
effectually. W must, therefore, not
only have a tariff a protective tariff
as woll ia a revenue tariff. Thoso
who talk otherwise are simply work
ing in the interest of England and a
aelthdi few, or aro repudiators at least
of tho first water who would voto for
" Young Groenbnck" or anybody els
who would embarrass our finances and
and force repudiation upon th coun
try. It manors very little to which
class tbey belong. Their works all
tend th same way and to lb iuo
end, and can result io nothing but
mischief, if the amount to anything
at all. In a word, toe muo! inijt ow
dbt. Before w do tbat we must an-
nuslly pay th interest oa It. To do
tbia we must have a high tariff. Aoi
a high tariff, to furnish tbo greatest
amount of revenue aid prove lb least
