Free Trade I'nlTersal. ' Direct Taxa
atlon to Support the General (Jot
A distinguifhed political economist,
Quesney, cnys: "The policy moat
sure, most true au'l must profitable tt
the Nation and to tiie people, exists
iu entire freedom of competition.
. Without liberty of trmle nil other lib
erty is mockery." Allusion in con
. elusion of last article was made to our
deprivation of shippii g accompani-
, ments, by protection. And we here
remark thnt so long a revenue tuiifi
continue?, it heinjj the cmiae of this
deprivation, we can, comparable to
our requirements, have no efficient
' exporting facilities. Confirmation of
. this is the fact that revenue tariff is
ah' ' avowed enemy of imports and
exports, and combats all competition
'. successfully, controverted , by none.
( Djoes enrichment of monopolies to the
impoverishment of lulxirers. com
! pal)sut0 Tor' these national requisites?
; Why this boast of matchless springs
of wealth--of unconceivetj resources
of aggrandizement, uud far-reachiug
' possibilities, maintaining' meantime
, a policy that in its, whole nature wars
- against their developments and their
' exportations, the standard sources of
. individual and national, prosperity ?
We export to import; as imports are
increased so will exports be increased;
, as imports are decreased so will ex
ports be decreased. Statistics prove
' that in given number of years we
. will export no more than we import.
Revenue tariff taxing imports, do
creases imports, and therefore decreas
' es exports. .'
Exports being the life-blood of this
nation, hopes of future progress will
fix the status of its destiny. How
pressing then is the necessity that ev
ery weight be removed that revenue
' tariff, the disturber of natural laws of
' trade, the destroyer of equilibrium
between industrial departments, pro-
. ducing plethora of investments in one,
to the detriment of all others, the
undisguised enemy of exports of the
' nation's wealth, be abolished without
delay. In proof, that as revenue
tariff or duties are raised exports will
. be decreased, and as duties are reduc
ed exports will be increased, we re
fer to tables of high); protective tariff
of 1824, and to tables ' of . much re
duced tariff of .183' viz: In 1825,
$66,944,745; 1826 853,055,710, 18
27, 858,921,691; 4834, $81,034,162;
1835, 8101,189,082 and 1836,. 8106,,
" 917,680. How-rapid the rise when
weights are taken off! Exports of
manufacttu-jid articles observed the
J same law of increase , onreductiou of
duties, and this' under great derange
ment of currency! The more pro
ducts a farmer exports from his farm
the more prosperous he is; so the
'' more a nation exports from its bor
. tiers, the gieuter its prosperity. Au

'.'al progress and . wealth, s.liould meet,

', states, and mode ,'of " suppTeiuenting

would meet prompt and general con.

stratiou of the effects of free trade

would convince all, that reall
J zatioii of free trade between this aud
other inli iilnal nations wouM lie at- !
tended by -parallel effects, and thou!d I
be all prevailing in determining our j
future policy. Violations of this nat
urallaw of trade produced the tlis-j
cor lances which crop forth in trade
unions, farmers conventions, the
smugglings of the people to protect
themselvesagainst another class which
class legislation has elevated above
labor. Who can thus witness the
hemorrhages of a great people to free
their industries from tyranny, and
not be nip veil. , '.'
Over thirty thousand custom house
officials, with interminable envimn
ments, kept up at the people's great
expense, to canopy this violation of
the constitution til t the masses pay,
give to monopolies three., times the
amount tbey pay to their government.'

(From the Cineinnati Enquirer.
The Louisville, New Albany and
Chicago Railroad refuses to run Sun
day passenger trains from Lafayette,
Ind., to Battle Ground, whereat
many vigorous howls came from the
Camp-meeting people. They express
their gratification, however, at the
efforts of a corporation to practice
morality and Sunday observance, but
regard it a failure, since the rbatl does
run freight trains, and also two pas
senger trains slip through Lafayette
every Sunday morning early, one for
Louisville and the other for Chicago.
They can not see wherein the theory"
aud practice of the road are consistent.
From the Indianapolis Journal. .
Win.' R. McKeen,' President of the
Vandalia, has come out flat-footed
against running any pecial train on
the system on Sunday, going so far as
to decline to run a special train Sun
day next to the Acton camp-meeting.
The Illinois Central has in , the
course of construction at Jefferson ville

with a capacity for nine thirty feet
oars. The machinery will be of the
most approved description and very
powerful; cylinders 27 inches in di
ameter and 9-feet stroke; wheels 36
feet in diameter. There will betwo

'How to Drive FlIi' Out of a Room.
Observations made Uy M. Raflord, a
memlitr of the Society of Horticulture
at Limoges, show that a castorM.il
plant having been placed in a room
infested with flies, they disappear as
if by enchantment. Wishing to find
the caue, he soon found under the
castor-oil plant a number of dead flises,
and a large number of bodies had re
mained fast to the under surface of
the leaves. It would therefore ap
pear that the leaves of castor-oil plant
give out an essential oil, or some tox
ic or some principle ' which posesses
very strong insecticide qualities.
Castor-oil plants are in France very
much used as ornamental plants in
a rooms, as they resist very well varia
tions of atmosphere and temperature.
As the castor oil plant is very, much
grown and cultivated in all gardens,
the Journal d' Agriculture points cut
that it would be worth while to try
decoction of the leaves" to destroy the
green flies and other insects which in
summer are so destructiv to plants and
fruit trees. Anyhow M. Raflord's
observations merit that trial should
be made of the properties of the caster-oil
plant both for the destruction
of flies in dwellings and of other
trouble some insects.- British Med
