drill on last Saturday
waa attended by about 70 of the sov
erslgns, of this Beat. There are, we

waa made in the way of arms, lome
had shotguns, rifles, muskets, yaw

. > Let the world
be studied as a means of living <
It would be cheaper and much easier1
to let its trade go free, nor demand
any duties to enhance- prices to the
consumer. Hut not alone is the means
of living to be considered, man has a
superior Intelligence to be cultivated
necessary to his fall development and
Divided by language, by different
organized governments, arising from
the distinct character <ff the races
who now inhabit it, each a climate
and soil adapted to it wants, where
is the necessity for supplying foreign
nations with proftise and bounteous
means of living 7 not only needed for
its own people bat absolutely neces-
,sary to complete their development
either as national beings or as means
offensive and defensive for our secu-
rity and peace.
For nature intends the productions
of all countries tq be the means oí
employment and progress to fill of the
same organized community who dwell
on its surface, nor can it fajl to do so
when thua employed.
Therefore manufactures are. a ne
cessity, to form the minds and rouse
the dormant faculties of our people,
even though it becomes necessary to
add a tariff to onr financial system.
It will£e seen from tbu that Eng-
lands froe trade policy is right where
circumstances and a protective policy
would be equally right in ours, as op-
posite circumstances demand oppo-
site modes of action. R. B. H.
