Nature vs, Protection.
'I believe in the evolution of Nature; in other
words. 1 believe in absolute free trade."-T. L
In regard to this view of things Mr.
Gerritt Smith (len. makes the following
remark., that are quite apropos in re
gard to the sentiment expressed above:
We wear clothing to protect us from
the and cover our nakedness We ire
in houses to protect us from the outside
elements. We build fences around ourI C
dwellings to protect our families from
oetside invadlers. We entrust our chil- BR
dren to the care of older ones to protect
a them from harmt during their minority. BR
The birds of the air have wings with
which to fly away and thereby protect CH
themselves from the quadrupeds and
animals. The bees protect themselves W
with their sting. Animals some of them Bu¬
with their horns, others having strong
teeth, with their bite. others are made Sur
fleet on their limbs. Mo
The ears of corn, in their incipient Cul
growth, are protected with husks that
wither and die as the kernel comes to Deg
maturity, and becomes enameled or gla- Bar
zed to protect the finer particles within
from decay. The chestnut is protected Tin
by a rough prickly pod or cover, which
expands with its growth and bursts and -
falls to the ground when no longer
needed. The rose, growing low on the
ground underfoot, protects itself with
- its thorns.
To follow out, every order of creation
after its kind has individually its shield
A Democrat responds: But we are all
of us men and brethren,. descendants of
Adam. Why should we draw the line
against each other?
Are they to have as to understand
that they build houses for other families
to live, to the neglect of their own? That
they labor to feed and clothe other fam+
ilies to the neglect of their own? That
in the acquisitton and disposition of
their property they make no preference,
but labor for others equally in common -
with their own?
Do the birds and fowls of the air make I I
use of their wings equally to protect
others of the same species? Or the bees
their sting to protect other bees? Or
animals their horns, teeth or limbs to
protect their fellow animals from harm.
Or tile husks of corn, chestnut pods, or
thorns of the rose, are they not used
each to protect its own? D
Protection due from parents to their
families is necessarily circumscribed or
limited to their authority and juriedie
tion; that is to say, their own families, O.
and within their family circle.
Protection due from communities to,
their individual membere is likewise, tf -
necessity, circumscribed or limited to
their authority and jurisdiction; that is
to sayj within the geographical limits
accorded to them, the exereise of which,
outside, would make them disturbers of
the peace, but if undertaken outside. It
would be peaceable and practical only
through reciprocal action.
What is true of heads of families and
communities, made up of Individual fa
milies, holds good as to a township,
country, State or nation.
Self-protection. or selfish protection,
as Democrats characterize it, is the first
law of our existence, and applies equal
ly to the animal as well as the vegetable
The head of a family undoubtedly has
the right to enforce free trade relations
between the members thereof. The go
vernment of a community within the
community, of a State within a State,
and a nation within its boubdaries; the
I GOd of heaven only throughobht the uni
verse governed by Him.
If Democrats (like our friend T. L.) de
sire to usher in the milieullinim at once,
i let them practise individuallyV What they
