the room. Jn this box there were five draw?

-An interesting case bas come up before
toe New York Court of Common Pleas, In?
volving the disposition to be made ol an In?
sane Parsee merchant ol Bombay, India, who
tur several months past has been in a lunatic
asylum In New York. This person is named
Bourangee Byrangee Colah. He arrived in
New YorK with $100,000 to enter upon the
brokerage business. One night, some months
agr. """e soddenly became insane while attend?
ing a theatrical performance, creating no little
confusion among the audience by Iiis strange
demeanor, and was arrested by the police.
When his condition and identity were discov?
ered, the British consul at New York took
steps to have him properly cared for. and
custodians of hi3pereon and properly were
appointed. Inlormation wa9 sent at the
same time to his relatives in Bom?
bay. . Lately his lather-ln-law. Mr. Wadea, a
Parsee of Bombay, came to New York, armed
with a power of attorney irom Colah's wife-a
mere child by the way-and now makes claim
for his person and estate in order to take
them back with him to India. Byrangee's
custodians in this country, however, oppose
this application under a protest sent by the
patient's brothers against such a removal.
These brothers allege that Byrangee's wife is
too young to have anything to say in the mat?
ter; that if he should be removed it should be
under the care of his own relatives, and that,
as a matter ol law, the court cannot remove i
lunatic out of his own jurisdiction. The Par
sees to whom these Indians belong are a class
known as Fireworshippers. They are the pos?
terity of an ancient emigration ol' Persians to
Free Trade-Revenue Reform.
The October cumber of the Atlantic
Monthly contains an article by Mr. Edward
Atkinson, of Boston, written in answer to
the demand of a leading protectionist Tor a
plain statement of tbe principles of the Free
trade part}', and of tbe effects those princi?
ples are expected to have on American in?
dustry. All that we can do, in this place, is
to indicate the line of Mr. Atkinson's argu?
ment, with the hope of encouraging the
public to an investigation of the principles
upon which it is based. Although the sub?
ject is one of importance to every person
who consumes materials, or makes use of
roauufactured articles of any kind, it ie, un?
fortunate.;/, a closed questioa to the great
body of the people. The very A B C of Free
Trade is unknown lo tbose who are most
concerned in the overthrow of the Protective
system. There is always, therefore, the dan?
ger that a political economist, however sin?
cere and disinterested, may write above the
heads of his readers, or give them what
seem to be fine-spun theories in place of vis?
ible and tangible facts. Weare glad, then, to
find that Mr. Atkinson's paper ?9 clear in
statement, sound in reasoning, and directed
to a practical end.
In answer to the first part of the question
submitted to bim, Mr. Atkinson savs that
the object of the free-trade economist is
"the most ample consumption of every arti
"cle called for by men, at the cost of the least
"possible effort to obtain it." When, how?
ever, capital interposes a tax between the
producer and the consumer, "for the pur- j
"pose of causing a more rapid accumulation
"of capital," consumption is diminished,
ana, in the case of the poorer classes, almost
stopped. Thus the rich are made richer and
the poor poorer. "The theory of protection |
"is to enforce temporary scarcity and a dis
"tribuliun of annual product under the force
"of law, in such a manner that a few are
"supported at the expense of the many.
"The theory ol free exchange is to promote
"lite greatest abundance, and a distribution
"meddled with by statutes only so far as the
'protection of the ignorant from fraud makes
Abundant consumption can only be se?
ared by a free exchange of commodities.
'The most extreme protectionists admit that
'some foreign exchanges are reasonable and
'proper; the free-trader claims that all for
'eign exchanges are expedient and protit
'able." This limit3 the question to this:
J some exchanges which men make are fit
ind profitable, why are not all exchanges
iqual'yso? The protectionist replies that i,
ve want to make our country independent in 11
:aseof war. But iron, coarse clothing and
ood are abundant in this country, irrespect
ve of a tariff, and these will supply our
leeds in war. The protectionist rejoins that
ve must have a diversified industry. That
3 very true, but the entire force of the pro?
active argument consists in substantially
imiting the term "manufactures" to the
jroduction of iron and steel in their crude or
primary forms, and to the production of
.extile fabric* from cotton, wool and flax.
These constitute but a very small part of the
industry of ihe country, and the whole num?
ber of per3ons to whom they give employ?
ment is "less than the number of immigrants
"who annually land upon our shores." But
ihe many, according to protectionist doc?
trine, are of le83 importauce than the few.
For instance, the locomotive-builders, boiler?
makers ami car-makers-all whose materials
bear a high duty-far outnumber the iron
and steel makers and owners of the forests.
A.nd yet the former find that their consump?
tion of material is obstructed by a tariff im?
posed in order that the latter may be sup?
ported. One effect of the tariff is plainly
given. If the railroads of the United States
could obtain a year's supply of steel rails at
what they now cost in Canada, "the savin:
"would constitute a fund more than equal to
"the capital invested in steel-rail mi!!?, and
"nearly if not quite tqunl to the entire in?
vestment in all the steel works of the Uni
"The next argument of the protectionist is
that, because wages are high in this country,
the cost ol all our product "must be also high,
and, conversely, that the labor ol* other coun?
tries is pai-per labor, and therefore the cost of
their product must bc low. Heuce, it is alleged,
we must exclude the product of pauper labor
lest our own be degraded. The tree-trader
may admit all the alleged facts, but must den;
the conclusion, since ll is almost universally
true lhat high wages are patd only lor that in?
telligence abd skill which results in low cost ot
products, and also that pauper or ignorant
labor is costly and dear. We pay for the pro?
duct of pauper labor, when imported, with
commodities produced by our mo^t skillul and
best-paid laborers. The further rejoinder to
this argument is, that even If the skilful for?
eign laborer receives such low wages ns to
make it flt to call lum a pauper, it does not fol?
low that the thing he produces will be at low
cost, since wages form but an uncertain crite?
rion ol" cost."
Here is an example of the influence of I
"pauper labor." IQ a yard of cassimere
sold in the United States at $1 65, the cost
of the labor of manufacturing is about 22
cents. Admitting that the wages of the
operatives in our woollen mills are one-fourth
more than those paid in Europe, the differ?
ence in cost would be only 5i cents a yard;
and before the foreign goods couid be sold
hew ibe expenses and charge? would absorb
the larger part of this Bmall difference. The
true disadvantage of our woollen manufac?
turers, at this time, is in the oppressive pro?
tective tax upon wool, dyestuffs and oil, and
upon all the supplies entering into the cost
of goods; and, also, in the duties on the
materials entering into the cost of machine?
ry. A skilful German manufacturer of cas
8imeres lately gave the opinion, that if the
Ehode Island manufacturer had h?3 wool
and other materials free of tax "it would be
"more likely that American cassimeres would
"be exported to Germany than that German
"cassimeres would come here, the use of ma
"chinery and the economy of labor being
"much greater here than there." Taking the
case of cotton doll), we find that the ad?
vantage of England in the lower cost of |
labor is but six-tenths of a cent a yard upon
goods worth 12 cents; from which must be
deducted, as before?, the cost of transporta?
tion and other charges. On the other hand,
we have the advantage of being nearer the
cotton field, which, in coarse fabrics, gives
ns "the advantage over England even in
"her own colonies." The real advantage
of the English spinner is in the absence of
taxes on the materinls of his machinery; in
the absence of tariff taxes upon food, fuel
and clothing; and in his freedom from any
local taxes upon his machinery. The whole
tax-system of Great Britain is upon ,tbe
principle of avoiding taxation upon tools or
maDhinery, or upon processes of labor.
Heuce, our foreign competitor has the world
fora market; while "we are restricted to
"the home market almost entirely, by the
"obstruction which a high tarifl interposes
"to foreign imports, and, therefore, to foreign
"exports." As to the absurd allpgatioa of
the protectionist that our cotton mills will
all be stopped, if British cotton goods are
admitted at very low or revenue rates of
duty,. Mr. Atkinson says :
"Of course, an injury would be done !o the
cotton interest or to aDy other, ll the duties
were exceptionally removed; but let us at?
tempt to foretell the effect upon colton indus?
try ol the enactment of a general revenue
tariff at low rates. We spin nearly two-filths
as much cotton in the United States as 1B spun
in Great Britain. Even now (July, 1871.) when
her existing mills are on tull spetd. operatives
are scarce and the tendency is to a rise in
wages; suppose we shut up our mills under the
compulsion ot a tree-trade tariff, and ask Eng?
land to splu and weave up into cloth another
million bules of colton on seven million new
spindles, In the construction ol which she
must first expend about one hundred million
dollars, and to operate which she must find
one hundred and twenty thousand new opera?
tives. What would be her reply ? Should we
not Hod ir, at the first moment, in such an ad?
vance in English wages to a par with our own
as would forever equalize the-n, and then for?
ever alter leave unimpaired our great ad?
vantage over Great Britain in being ihe pro?
ducers within our own borders of a supera?
bundant supply of coti on and of food? Wei!
and truly did an Englishman of eminent sagac?
ity once say lo me : 'You will find the best
protection to your manufacture i to consist in
free-trade; and we have only to dread your
rivalry when you adopt that policy. While
you persist in your present system, you do not
succeed in excluding us from your market, but
you do succeed In limiting your own exports
to the crudest forms of raw material.' "
The next plea for protection in the United
States is based on the high rate of interest
upon capital, and the alleged very low rates
in England. But the high rates in this
country only prove that capital is well em?
ployed. Shall it then be diverted to employ?
ments which require great concentration of |
capital, like colton and wool mills, to the
detriment of all the other employments
which cannot be protected, and which pay
such high rates for its use ?
"The last plea of the protectionist which WP
sball attempt to state is, that this is a new
country, possessed ol' enormous natural re?
sources which need lo be developed. Let us
put thia plea In a different form. In old times,
iboutone hundred years since, Great Btitain
ntempted lo put a stop to the rapid Increase
in the product of iron and steel and of wool?
en cloth (the cotton-gin had not then been in
rented) in the colonies of Americu, and this
iltempt was one of the causes of our War of
Independence. Her manulacturers then urged
Parliament to protect their old and well-estab?
lished manufactures against the stalwart in
innt Just born here. Then our natural re?
sources were considered a power and a loree;
sow, forsooth, we must believe them to be a
lonrce of weakness, and cannot be developed
except by means of a bounty granted at ihe
cost of those who own no share in them; that
Is to say. at the cost of that great preponder?
ating mass of the community who work for
wages, and as producers and consumers pay
nearly all the taxes on comraodli les, whether
levied under a tariff or under any other sys?
We have now followed Mr. Atkinson
through his explanation of the principles of
:he American Free-traders. His exposition
jf the expected effects of Revenue Reform
apon American industry must be postponed
to another occasion.
