Shipping Iron to t^igiand.

Yet during the |*si year, been I •iiipp^l from the Uuit'd 8tat*, 011! 'K. orders of British denies, not on-J Enplnnd but in large qnant!• *'jW to oth®r wctionR of the globe on account. And, now, atfle-j r.1(n from informs »w that •"•therein quit* a demand inE:g-j ,n«l for American iron," and one of I lie largest manufacturers In i !Vnn?ylvKnift ways the «hijmiont ofj (n from this country to England! H!i U-couie a profctable branch ofj wlc. I If xre frsqftlre for the eatw ff thfa 'tnarkahlo change in tho u-ual juweof trade, it will bo found to proceed directly from the system ofj protection to horue Industriort." I y tills the importation of iron was! lWked, t| and the. investment of capi- jn our own iron industries made profitable. Development* followed ith n rapidity never before known. Millions of capital were employed in uikli'ig new furnuctnin Pennsylva nia, Michigan, Miibouri, and other -tutts. The aggregate product ofj ron was, in consequence, largely in-J reased, while at the same time, pri-i •os weir reduced, until competition] in the English markets has been made profitable. As a single, but at the eame time inost forcible illustration of tho re mits of protection, take the article of »teel-faced rails. Formerly the trucks on our railroads were laid with iron rails. In 1858 to 1860 tho supe riority and tho economy of steel rails were established. Just then i'rufeSHor Jles^mer ha-l completed, most sucepafully, Ills method of con verting iron into steel by a new and lipid process, and at a much less cost than waa formerly required. Eng land reaped the benefit of the discov vjy, and went largely into the man ufacture of steel rails, not only for her own railroads, but for shipment to the United States. .But British j"t*!ol rail* cost $200 per ton yet ooe of the gfeat railroad men of this coun try remarked that "he would rather pay that price for steel rails than use iron rails if they cost liim nothing." In 1862 and 1863 capitalists in the United Htates purchased the right of uning the Bessemer patents, and im mediately commenced the erection of establishmonts for the manufac ture of steel rails. Congress put a duty of one cent a pound on import ed rails, and in 1803 rails of American manufacture were supplied in limi ted quantities at $175 per ton. The price of English rails was immedi ately reduced with the view of con tinuing themonoply of the American markets. But our product of steel r»iIs had increased in 1*64 and 180o and the price was further reduced to $loO per ton. The English competi tors fell even below that figure in the price of their rails, and the com petition continued until our manufac turers reduced tho cost of rails to $10Q |*r ton for largo contracts, and $112 for «mall lots. Yet at that price they assert that the business under the pres ent tariff can be made entirely suc dftwfuJ. Without the cent a pound duty, no American capitalist could have been found to invest in an enterprise that could not possibly have succeeded in it* infancy against British competi tion. —lirpuMie.
