In all tilings that have beauty, there is nothing to
nun more comely than Liberty." Miltoji.
When the dance of the shadows
At daybreak is done,
And the cheeks of the morning
Ars red with the sun
hen he sinks in his glory
At eve from the view,
And calls up the planet
To blaze in the blue
There is beauty. But where is the beauty to see, j
more proud tnan the sight of a nation when free f
When the beautiful bend
Of the bow is above,
Like a collar of light
On the bosom of love,
When the moon in her mildness
Is floating on high,
Like a banner of silver
Hung out in the sky
There is beauty. But earth hath no beauty to see,
More proud than the front of a nation when free.
In the depth of the darkness,
Unvaried in hue,
When the shadows are veiling
The breast of the blue
Whon the voice of the tempest
At midnight is still,
And the spirit of solitude
Sobs on the hill
There is beauty. But where is the beauty to see,
Like the broad beaming brow of a nation that's free!
In the breath of the morning,
When nature's awake,
' And calls up the chorus
To chant of the break
In the voice of the echo
Unbound in the woods
In the warbling of streams,
And the foaming of floods
There is beauty. But where is the beauty to see,
Like the thrice hallow'd sight of a nation that's free?
When the striving of surges
Is mad on the main,
Like the charge of a column
Of plumes on the plain
When the thunder is up
From his cloud-cradled sleep,
And the tempest is treading
The path of the deep
There is beauty. But where is the beauty to see,
Like the sun-brilliant brow of a nation when free?
From the New York Plebian.
Meeting of the Shoemakers against the pre
sent Anti-Protective and oppressive
Quite a numerous and highly intelligent bo
dy of shoemakers convened last evening at
Mager's Concert Hali, to take into considera
tion the effect of the present tariff upon their
branch of industry. They were organized by
the appointment of Mr. ROBERT WAL
KER, as President; David Kilmer, Daniel
Witler, Samuel Kohler, Enoch Granger and
William Mackee, as Vice Presidents : and Ira
C. Munson and Henry Beeney, as Secretaries.
The committee appointed at a previous meet
ing reported the following Address and Reso
lutions: Fellow-Mechanics: An important crisis
in national affairs has arrived. A right under
standing of the great questions now agitating
the public mind is of vital importance to all
classes of the community ; and to none more
so than to us. We earn our living by follow
ing an honest and a useful occupation. The
happiness and welfare of ourselves and fami
lies depend upon our daily labor. We have
been told that a hicrh tariff was necessary to
protect the mechanical industry of the coun
try, and particularly that branch of mechani
cal labor in which we are engaged. We have
been told that the present high Tariff would
enable us to command better prices for our la
bor, make us less dependent upon the power
of capital and capitalists, enable us to increase
our supply of the necessaries and enjoyments
of life, increase our ability to feed, clothe, and
educate our sons and daughters, and thus fit
them foi that high and holy destiny for which
they were designed.
Protection to American Industry is the ho
nied phrase that has been run? in our ears for
the last twenty-five years. Thousands of our i
From the Pi
fellow craftsmen have been deceived and de- npon the agricultural industry of the country,
luded into the support of taxes, restrictions, I nas an injurious effect upon the mechanics, by
and prohibitions upon the trade and industry lessening the demand for what they produce,
of the country, by the fake use of the term pro- j The tariff confines the farmer to a home mar
tection. Protection to the mechanic, protec- 1 ket ana having a surplus of wheat, beef, and
tion to the laborer, in the shape of restrictive ! pork, he is forced to sell at prices that will not
and prohibitory taxes noon everv article of remunerate him for his labor, and thus his a-
food and clothintr that is consumed in his fam
ily, has been echoed and re-echoed throughout
the length and breadth of the land.
But is the film at last removed from our
eyes; our understanding is captive no longer.
The so-called protective system has proved it
aelf oppressive to our interests. It has failed
to increase our ability to clothe and educate
those dependent upon us. It has increased
our expenses of living, while it has not in
creased, but rather decreased the wages of our
labor. We are compelled to pay more for the
cotton and woollen goods we consume, while
it requires everv exertion in our Dowertocom-
raand from our employers former prices paid i
1 -
fof our labor.
Prices paid us were never low-
er than now ;
though under the reduction of
duties effected by the act called the Compro
mise act they were much higher.
Wre ask you, fellow-citizens, where is the
protection that was promised us under the pre
sent high tariff If we receive no more for
our labor, and are required to pay more for a
large portion of the necessaries of life consum
ed by us, are we protected by the tariff? If
we are to be taxed for the purpose of increas
ing the wealth of a few capitalists and weal
thy manufacturers, in the name of justice and
truth we protest against calling it protection
to our industry ! Call it injustice, call it op
pression, call it plunder, call it robbery, or by
any other and more mild term, so long as the
name indicates the effect produced.
it industry is to be protected or benefitted
by acts of Congress, we demand our share of
the benefits, while we are willing to contribute
our proportion of the expenses of government.
Equal protectiomto all classes of men, to all
branches of industry is -the only system of
protection that can long be endured by a free
and intelligent people. No prohibitions of
the productions of foreign climes can be bene
ficial to us. Light taxes, and as little restric
tions upon the trade and commerce of the
world as is compatible with the wants of the
Government, is the only method by which the
industry of this great nation can be protected
and made most prosperous.
Even hQuJd a heavy tax upon foreign shoes
enable us as a class to command higher wages
(which it does not) it could only produce this
effect by increasing the price of shoes when
made, and thus injure the great body of the
consumers. If such should be its effect upon
the produce of our labor it would not benefit
at. For the same cause that increased the
price of shoea would increase the pries of eve-
ry other article ; and we should suffer in the
purchase of onr hat, and our coat; our sucrar,
and our salt; besides numerous other articles
of consumption.
The great principle that forms the basis of
the science of political economy is the art or

can produce the cheapest will always hare the
advantage in the market of the world. A
ti on that possess the facilities of growing or
making an article cheaper than another, needs
no taxes or prohibitory laws to lessen foreign
competition. A sound, uniform, and unfluc-
tuating currency, light taxes, and as muck of
free trade as is consistent with 3n economical
support of the Government will do more to
protect American industry than all the prohib-
itory tariffs that ever were enacted.
The present high tariff has been in opera-
tion two years; ample time has elapsed to test
its effects upon the branch of business in which
we as a class are engaged. And we now ap-
peal to you, to the great body of shoemakers
in this city, and throughout the Union, whe-
ther they have experienced the promised bene-
fits that its friends said would result.
We know your reply fellow-citizens. There
is not an intelligent shoemaker in the United i
States who will say that he is benefitted by the j
tariff unless he considers low wages tor la-
bor and increased taxes upon what he con-
sumes a benefit. ;
Let us take another view of the injurious
effect of the present tariff upon the mechanical meanors and after a patient hearing was fi
industry of the country; and particularly upon na)y convicted and sentenced. The following
that branch of mechanical labor in which we details of the trial will not, we think prove un

The great and most important interest of i most particularly to his numerous personal
this and all other countries is the agricultural. fr;P,ia whn etnnd hv him and nheorfid him du-
This is the primal source of man's happiness.
It is this interest from which all other branch
ed industry receive their chief support.
When this interest prospers, all others pros-!
per. W hen the tanner receives remunerating
prices for the produce of his labor, the me
chanic and the artizan prospers. Fourteen
millions of our people are agricultural ; they
are now oppressed beyond endurance. The
tariff affords them no protection. Their wheat,
beef, butter, pork, &c. &c. wants a market.
If they can sell at fair prices they can increase
their purchases of what we produce. Secure
to them good prices for their labor and you
will secure good prices for our labor. Re
lieve them from the burdens of high taxes,
and you relieve us. Protect them, and, as a
natural and inevitable consequence, you pro
tect us.
Fellow-Mechanics, the age of ristrictions
upon the industry of man is fast passing away.
Freedom in all legitimate pursuits is the pre
vailing sentiment of the age in which we live.
Protect each and every man in the enjoyment
of all those natural rights guarantied to him
by the Constitution of our country; leave him
free to pursue, that business in life for which
he is by nature or education best qualified for.
Remove every unjust restriction upon the na
tion's industry. Give to intellect and genius
their widest held. Divert not the natural chan
nel in which the labor of our people would be
directed when unobstructed.
If we ask protection, it is protectu n from the
present high taxes upon a large proportion of
the necessaries of life. We ask that our labor
should not be unnecessarily burdened with
high duties on what we eat and drink. We
are willing to contribute our fair proportion of
the burdens of government; but we ask a fair
proportion of its benefits. We desire no mo
nopoly in our vocation ; but we are unwilling
to be taxed for the sole benefit of the manufac
turers. Equal protection to all classes is our
motto give us this, and we are content.
Of all the fallacies of the day we consider
the promised protection to the mechanics of
the United States, under the present tariff, the
greatest. At all events the shoemakers have
had enough of it. We ask that it may no lon
ger be afforded.
Be it therefore Resolved, That the present
tariff is a burthensome tax upon the industry
of the country, and particularly upon that
branch of industry in which we are engaged.
Resolved, That our untiring exertions will
be U6ed to procure a modification of the pre
sent tariff, by which our taxes will be light
ened and our labor better rewarded. We be
lieve that a sound currency and light taxes
upon the necessaries of life, will protect us
infinitely more than the present tax of about
100 per cent., on sugar, cheap cottons, and
flannels. Remove this burden upon our in
dustry, and our wives and children will be
better clothed, fed, and educated.
Resolved, That the effect of the high tariff
bility to purchase the produce of our labour is
Resolved, That as we regard the welfare of
ourselves and those dependent upon us, as
well as our brother mechanics throughout the
Union, we deem it our sacred duty to do all
in our power to effect the election of James K.
Polk, and thus secure to every branch of in
dustry, agricultural, mechanical, commercial,
and manufacturing equal protection.
Resolved, That the great interests of the
country, agricultural, mechanical, and com
mercial are as much entitled to protection as
the manufacturing. Next to agriculture, the
mecnanicai industry emoraces, in its diversi
tied pursuits, a large majority of the working
classes. We demand that this numerous bo
dy of useful citizens receive their just share of
the protection of Government, which can only
be accomplished by a modification of the present
Resolved, That we recommend to the work
ing men of all trades to unite with us in our
efforts to procure the repeal of the present un
just tariff, and the enactment of such an one
as will not only protect the mechanic, but the
whole industry of the country.
This report and the resolutions were ad op-
tea witnout a aissenung voice, iney speaK
the intelligent sentiment of the working clas
ses, and agree tothe letter with the doctrines
this paper has long promulgated. A shoema
ker by our side says that no duties upon shoes,
however high, can protect him. If you im
port foreign shoes, you must import foreign
feet to wear them. Wre have our own style

contend that the present tanffis in every sense natural death, which will be in Novem
ofthe term an anti-protective tariff, & especially I vmif noo. defunct bodtf . be
in the case of the shoemakers. We will re-
iterate the argument we have given before. :

be made in Pans for 50 cents a pair, and to

it is desirable to protect our shoemakers, and
wilh this object we lay a duty of 25 per cent,
on imported shoes. The protection afforded
would be just 25 per c't., nd our shoemakers
would be benefited, though the consumer of
J shoes would be injured. Bat suppose we go
a little turtner, ana oy a duty ot 35 per cent,
on the stock imported to make the shoes, what
would be the result ? Why the dvrr -ooihe
stock has destroyed the protection afforded
the shoemakers by the duty on shoes ! The
shoemaker who imports his stock must pay 25
per cent, in the supposed case, and he has a
Drotection of 25 oer cent, on his labor, which
! leaves him no better off than he would be if
there was no dutv. Indeed not so well ; for
the price of shoes is increased to the consumer,
na-jand thus he is compelled to purchase less,
: AL the shoemakers ask is, that government
will not interfere with them the mechanics
generally ask no other favor. This meetin?
gave evidence of the rapid progress of correct
notions on the subject of political economy,
and is proof that the special pleading and
nonsense of such anti-protective papers as the
Tribune are of no effect. The meeting was
ably addressed by several journeymen shoe-
makers and employers, each speaker, by sound
practical argument, maintaining the doctrines
laid down in the address and resolutions.

of a Great Criminal.
Qn tne 5th of September, " That same Old
Coon," of whom the people of the United
States have heard so much, was arraigned be-
rorA - National Imam fftr hia crimes and misde-
ring the last trying scenes.
The Hon. John M. Clayton of Delawaie,
wa eeneiallv encracred as enrmsel. hnt was
preventea from attending owing to an impru
dent overdose of Brown iV mixture, taken
lately to overcome a pulmonary affection pre
valent with his party. Mr. Tommy Temple
acted as friend and counsel, assisted by seve
ral distinguished whigs.
The Jury being erapannelled, the trial was
about to commence, when his counsel submit
ted an argument upon the pleadings, which
they wished settled by the Judges "in Bank."
But the motion was overruled.
We are sorry to say that the culprit display
ed very little feeling, indulging himself in
wild and grotesque actions, indicative of great
natural levity of disposition. His favorite at
titude was that so graphically depicted at the
Whig Club Rooms, to wit: with his hind paw
or claw touching the end of his longr nose in a
very effective, crafty and imposing manner.
As he sat in the dock in this his favorite posi
tiont you saw at once that it was M that same
old coon:" the conclusion was irresistible.
As "Solitude" Ewing said, "there was no
argument in the poor beast," to deny the fact,
he therefore, though repeatedly questioned,
stood mute, now ogling a.id coqueting with
an abolitionist, then winking to a Native, and
occasionally when the evidence bore hard up
on him, crying out for a tariff for protection.
The first witness called was the editor of
the F , to prove the identity of the pri
soner. The witness appeared very sullen and some
what subdued. Witness Knows that same
old coon, knew him in 1840; was intimate with
him; thought him endowed with great princi-J
pie; worshipped him; have drank cider with
him; considered him therefore the fit emblem
of the whig party; have smoked pipes with him
and spun long yarns with him; but don't know
if that is the same old coon or not.
Some sharp questions were then put to the
witness, which were replied to very equivo
cally, whereupon the Judge said the witness
must answer, but at the same time he was not
to be Badgered. Upon the last word being ut
tered, prisoner cried out in the most pathetic
manner, "Don't you know me 1 Look at me.
Oh ! give me some cider and a pipe of Clay!"
The effect was irresistible, the Judge told the
witness he might sit down. "But stop," said
he, "I'll put one question to you before you go.
Were you intimate wilh hat same old coon be
fore the Bank of the U. States burst up? Wit
ness "No, we had money enough then from
the Bank, it was only after Old Hickory burst
up the Bank that we began to worship the
Here the prisoner began to sing in a wild
and melancholy strain, "Hurra for Tip and
Tyler too."
Some of his friends clapped their hands up
on his nozzle to stop the song; loud and sup
pressed sound 8 were uttered as if humming
the air, and when the fingers werj relaxed to
give him breath, "Tip and Tyler too-oo,"
burst forth with great energy, in spite of all
their efforts to choke.off the Tyler too.'
Many other witnesses were called, who all
corroborated the fact of the prisoner being that
'same old coon;' others had seen him in com
pany with Mr. Webster, Mr. Clay, Jos. R.
Ingersoll, Doleful Billy and Joy Monis.
The counsel for the prisoner now opened
the defence by eulogizing his client. Said
that by his aid they (the whigs) had carried
on the war of '40. Said that he had several
letters from Henry Clay which he wanted to
read, but upon exhibiting them, they all, one
after the other denied the preceding assertions
so that no one could tell what was meant by
any of them. One time out and out coon,
then for hanging him; now for protection, then
abandoning the principle, at one time offering
to fight any man that talked of Texas, then
"very glad" there was such a place, and con
cluded with a round assertion that it they did
execute that same old coon, he'd go to Texas
himself, and raise h 1 there with a fifty
million fiscal agent, backed by his friends
Featherstonehaugh and Lord Ashburton.
Finally the orator concluded with a magnifi-
nant nor.nrotinn nnH a Hot ot tin Hn lore in tl WO

Although the "Journal" will be a political paper, yet, in order that it may also be agreeable to the general reader, its columns
will always be open to such items of intelligence as will be interesting to the Farmer, the Merchant, the Mechanic, &c. Agricul
ture, Trade, the state of the Markets, &c, together with a slight glance at polite literature occasionally,will receive our attention.
We hope we will not be considered too " personal in our remarks" when we offer a few suggestions to our friends touching
the necessity there exists for keeping on foot a Democratic Press in the Town of Wilmington. .
In the first place, Wilmington is a place of the greatest commercial importance of any in the State : it is situated in a Demo
cratic District : there is a great deal of intercourse carried on by the citizens of the lower portion of the State with this place,
and consequently a Press here would be calculated to as much good, in diffusing information, as perhaps at any other point iD
the Slate. Again, there are, we believe, three Federal to every one Democratic paper in the State, and this we feel confident, U
the reason why North Carolina placed a Whig in her Gubernatorial Chair at our recent election: for we feel assured that it onlj
requires a fair comparison to be instituted between the policy of the Federal and Democratic parties lo ensure for the latter the
most triumphant success. Well now, it is impossible for a Press to be kept up unless our friends will patronize it by subscribing
themselves and inducing others to " go and do likewise." For, gentle reader, we suppose you are aware, and if you are not, we
will tell you, that Printers and Editors are so far like other mortals that it requires something more than air to feed and kind wish
es to clothe them. Therefore, we hope that every Democrat into whose hands this Prospectus may fall, will do all he can to in
sure the success of the " Journal and the cause of Democracy. DAVID FULTON.
