Much excitement is nnnlfcsled in the United

For tie Red- lander. I
I bare slwars ben taught to think that in a
Republican form of Government tho laws enacted
and Urn policv pursued by tbat government were
intended for tho benefit or the people govern eo
and not fW ihusc thai covern; but for my life 1
cannot see the benefit arising to the people of1
Texas from this thing called the Tariff and we
must suppose the coders of the Treasury have nel
received much benefit from it as ibey arc empty
but somebody must have received a benefit from
it; for as the saying goes His a bad wind that
blows nobody any good. Then if there be a ben

rule in bric that sav. thit if a thing reaUy exists
bo-vever diScull (ofioJ if you can macuic
whire it i nott y" tniy find where it is.
For instance if we know for certain thit there
be a dollar in one of three !ntand we find by ex-
tmlna'ion it is ool in two oi mem u micu .u
in liie thtr 1 one. By this rule if no benefit arises
from the Tariff to the penp'c cr the Treasojy tt
must accrue to third pjrsn?.
I was arguing after this rainner to one of ray
neighbors the other day on tho subject oftlie Taf-

also admitted that wc paid at least 100 per cent

Thcss op.n.ons of iheirswcro imbibed and nurtured

to this. J: or instance we havenodo-nasiicrminu

fore our Tariff is laid with the solo view of revenue
and it is apparent to the weakest "capacity that it
cois iCMlo collect thetevenue by one set of
omcerrtnan uy two; ana one of the evils otour
government against which tho loudest complaints
raised is the having loo miny officers of govern
ment quartered upon and drawing their support
from iho pcoplo.
And sirs I I hire long been of tho opinion that
the Icist oppressive and most impartial mode of
raising a revenue fur tho support of government
was to Tax every citizen according to the amount
he is worth without any rcfcrcnco to the specific
kind of property he possessed and thereby leave
trade and commerce untrammelled. By this
means sajs Ittho burthen of government would
fall on the .right shoulders as one of the primary
objects of government is the prelection of property (
therefore (Lose tbat have property protected

pcraims rccivo from gOTcmmcof could bo paid for

We would respectfully invite the attention of
these who arc fond of stock raising to ihe advan-
tage! Texas assesses over any other country
perhaps on the Globe fur raising sheep; and wp
give it as our opinion that there is no species of
stock the raising of which would yield a greater
ptifit. There is an Englishman in Bjcnos Ayrcs
who is the owner of one hundred thousand sheep.
He began in I$3J with a fljck of sixty. The

There arc vast tracts of our own country hnVy

as high up as the maintains. Tho prairies are ex-
tensive; and in miny places there are salt lakes
hch supersede the necessity of hiring salt to
buy for thi flock.
Ha who Is able to b'iy a few hundred sheep aid
