Io view of the Interest Just now attachlrg tolhequcsUonof the revision of tho tariff, wo give pUce to ihe following communica tion, which has been addressed to Special Commissioner Well! Wis.rwoir. hSSffVvn't uEkn biri 1 presume there Is nothing eo complicated and Intricate a a proper ad justment of the tariff. New IntcresU are consUntly arising wtlh which the old Uriff act conflict! and by the lime we adjait It to the reqnlremeuU of the hour new compli cation will arise. It doubtless will continue to be to a long a we continue to be a Pro gressive psople. Thcro are those who ar clamoring loudljfor free trade, but do not top for 000 moment to consider the almbet InsurmounUble barrier that Interpose be tween us ana tne adoption of such a pun. The great desire and pride of our people I that they may become the competitors. If not the proud arbiter, of the manufacture of the worll. This can only be done by a fareeeieg adaptation of wise mean to wise endl. o.vqvAxiriRi-1 ran TftlDi U at present, ta ray opinion, a thing Jmpot tlble with ui. Tho enormoui freveotte re quired to be raised annually to pay tbe In terest on our public debt, the protection thai U necessary to throw around tbe lndui trial InteresU of tbe country, la order td strengthen 1U sU&uUctures until experience and the influx of cheap Ubor shall have enabled us to lacceaifullj compete with (he older countries of Europe, teem at preaent to forbid It. Wearealwara readv to com plain of tbe high price we pay for that waica we consume, but we are never reaoj to Uke the Initiative In reducing the price of that which we otter for tale. The Uborcr complaint that he doe not get a proper re muneration for his toll, while the farmer and the manufacturer compUlns that tho price they get for their commodities at th present illy prepare them lo pay the coat of Us production! nd as Ubor must of ne cessity always precede the productions ot Ubor, tbe article produced must of necessity continue to be high until tucb lime a the preponderance of Ubor over It demand compels lu price to sink to tbe orlloary level. tbi irncr or rata raibt upoa our home manufacture, If there mtt no other obsUcIe In the way, would forever preclude such a thoegbt. The great pres tige that England ha gained over all other nations of the world U due lo her former systems of protection aad a wise adjust ment of her Urlffif and we, by a wtseap. precUtloa of the accumulated wisdom of past agoe, and lu effect npon other nations of the earth, may learn lessons of great In terest to ourselves, aad discover the practi cal fact that tho mighty f area of slmlUr causes lhat brought tato existence the mag- nlfloent manufacture of the Old World, will by a wise application produce the same effect ln the New. The effect of free trade upon the agrlcnl- lural InteresU of the country would, lu my Judgment, be damaging beyond all calcula tion. By throwing open tho gates to free trade we invito tho competition of all the ' n-tfUta Ua.Mll.auai .. w.vt .a Cheap bnmdstaSk are desirable; bat WhM It U to be obtained at the expense 01 !? best IntcresU of tnose sturdy yeoman, those pioneers of oar country, who have scorned the teml pauperism of dty life In the East, and have gone Into the far West to procure a home for themselves aad family. It is nor to desirable after all raoTtofioit. What then U the true tyttem of protec tion t What measure ought we to adopt In the adjustment of oar Urlff, lhat will equally conduce to the Interest of tb pro ducer, at well at the consumer f Thete questions are all asked tn one other, and are the most complex questloosot tbe age We all have our flew at to what the an-. swer thonld be,but most 6f us differ .and con tequently, cannot aU b right. One says, let ut Ut all articles Imported from foreign countries! another sty, noi let us Ux alt foreign manufactures, aad throw open our port to the free Importation of all raw material Add a third class tays, let u throw open our port to free trade, aad In vite au tne texnuiacturet or to woria. Neither of thete proposition la my judg ment It right. What then It the true tyt bmt TtnTaUBlTltKU. Tbt true iyttem of protection, la my Jadg meat, It flrtt the free importation of all raw material, both Of mlaa ind forest, when eaeh material cannot be furnished In sum dent quantities to meet the wants of the country here. Second'?, the Imposition of a salable Ut inch at tho industrial Inter est of the country would teem to demand upon all manufactured articles, whether of fabrics, wool, or Metal, except inch aa are an absolute necessity, and cannot be far nlshed here, ta such case I would admit och, article .tree. The effect of the former would be to attract to our shore the raw material of other coun tries j encouraging lu manufacture here, and discourage It abroad, It would Induce Immigration, and would brieg the elperienced Ubor of Europe to our shore, tt heed no very large gift of prophecy td determine the effect that inch a course would hate upon tbe condition of onr country.

Then, let vt have, by all meant, a wise adjustment of our UrltTi, keeping la view, at all time, the Interest 1 both of the producer as well aa Iho consumer, Foreigners, then, will flock to our shores, tbe prlco ef Ubor will soon resume lis normal condition ouagricnl, taral aad manufacturing lnUrcsU would soon grow up to enormous proportions) onr marine would toon assume lu grand posi tion once more on the high teas, and Our flag and country would toon be honored aad revered by the people's of every land.
