This r.,r Sn,n, strnn-re rnnson. Ihnv "have lie- , lected, and still refuse to do; and the world i left as profoundly ignorant of Mr. Polk's public speeches and acts, as though he had not been fourteen jw. in the U. S.

And yet, strange to say, not one of these speeches is quoted by Mr. Polk's supporters here, nor a solitary sentiment he ever uttered previous to his nomination, permitted to see the light ! How is this? Why is it? Could a man spend some twenty years in active public life and not say something worth repealing ? Something which would furnish a safer indication of his real seiilimenls on any given subject, than what he might say when called upon as an inter ested witness? It seems to us so; don't it to you, reader Hut thin it is. The question of PUOTF.C.TION, is one in which we all feel a deep inlererest. The supporters of Polk say he is iniror uf protection. We ask them for the evidence to refer us to the speech in which he advocated the doctrine. They decline'. We ask them to publish any one of his speeches on the subj"ct. They refuse 1 Finally, we chal lenge the Sentinel and Democrat to refer us to nny act, vote, or sentiment of his, previous to his nomination, which would warrant any such in terpretation ; nnd they tell us Ihey " are sicl, of Ibis everlasting twaddle about protection" ! Well, wo will trouble them no more ; but to the law and the testimony. ITc will resort to Mr Polk's public speeches and acts, and faithfully report as we there find him. Judge ye. In Ihe session of lSlW-'33, Mr. Polk was a member of the Committee of Ways and Means, who reported a hill, (which did not pass.) greatly reducing the duties below those adopted by the tariff act of the preceding session (tariff of 1S3Q). lie made a long speech in favor of the new bill, and ngaiint the proterlice system, which will be found in the Cong. Deb., p llfi'J. As a specimen of that speech an extract will sufiice : " It appears from this testimony that the duties upon woolens (now fi My per cent ) nny not only he reduced, lot that tieenly-fire p-r rent will bi a sufficient protection, provided there be a corres ponding itnDucTioN on Tin: raw ma- Ti'iim .i i. .i..,,. l, f..u.. ,,.,,! r..ri. i. lecteil; nnd Hint the manufacturers of cottons, and efpecially nf cmre cottons, would he able 10 continue their business projitalily at lite re duced dutij of tieclre and a half per cent, on the rival foreign nrticle." " I propose next to establish, by testimony equally entitled to credit, the third proposition, which is, that the manufactures of ihe United Slates were in a prsperotn condition under the costing more nnd far the right icars intrrrcning between the years HKinnd li-J I, and also that theactof It'll!, afforded them ample imidcnlnl pro tection."

Ihe compro mise act, under the pretext of reducing the duties down to what was called ihe " necessary wants of the government." Hut this failed, 115 to 0 ). Mr. l'olk shortly after retired from Congress, and entered the lists for Governor in Tennessee, where he was called out on this question, nay, sought discussion and has left on recoid the moit ample and satisfactory testimony. We quote first from a Synopsis of Gor. Polk's speech delivered at .lack son, on 'tlie'.U of .Ipril. loi:!," leriltcn out hi) Guc.l'. himsrlf, iu published ill pamphlet form.

Mr. l'olk says he is in favor of going back to the principles of the compromise aet. The compromise act was predicated on the fact that the proceeds of the public lands had been disposed of by distribution, and were not to le turn to the treasury as a source of revenue. Now listen to him in reference to the public land,, lie is for the compromise act; but, mind ye, how determined he is to return the land innn ey to the treasury, for the AVOWED l'Ull POSi: of robbing protection of oven the little ''incidental" aid it might get under the !J0 per cent, horizontal duty of Ihe compromise act, that he talks of returning to! Note how constantly he is haunted with the idea of a " prolcelire ta-l' J rift". " Vermont," and her "pecuniary inter est" in the luids thu" manufacturing states," and N. Hngland generally ! Hut read. We copy from his ".Udrcss to the people of Tennessee, March 25(i, 1811."

'I,el South ; in EVERY VIEW OF Till'. MF.AS URE, it is nu auxiliary to the PROTECTIVE policy. It is presented, it is true, in the soduc-1 live, but at llie same tune, deceptive and tli-- j giiised form, of giving money to the Slales out of 1 the Federal Treasury, when it is, in truth, laying ' new burdens 011 the people. The MANUFAC TURING Stales so understand it, and hence llie Legislature of VERMONT, Rhode-Island, Con. necticut, New-York, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and some other States, have, during the past and present year, passed Legislative resolves instruc ting their Sen iters and requesting their Repre sentatives in Congress to advocate Ihe measure. The State of Connecticut publicly declares tint such is her object by pissing Resolves, at the same lime instructing her Senators and Repre sent ilives in Congress lo " resist by all constitu tional means every attempt to destroy or impair the protective policy," :ind to use tbeirexertioiis lo procure llie pissige uf such 1 iws as will efl'ec tn illy protect the labor oflhis country, ' the man ufacturing 1 ibor, ' of course, is meant. The Legislature of Pennsylvania, in the month of January list, avowed in direct terms that an in crease of llie tariff was their object. They pass ed a Resolve instructing their Senators and Rep resentatives to advocate and vote for the distribu tion, mid passed a second Resolve in the follow ing words, vi. : Hi solird, That our Senators be further instruc ted, and our Representatives requested, to vole for such modification or adjustment of the tarilf iu may increase the revenue derived from hu ll irts equ il to thu wants of the N itiou il Govern ment, so that at no time hereafter, under any pretext whatever, shall any money, arising from the sales of the public lands, be used by the General Govern inent." "All the Resolves referred to were passed by Legislatures, a majority nf whose members were the political friends and supporters of the pres ent National Administration, They have all been officially communicated to the Executive oflhis Slate, fas 1 suppose th-y have been to Ihe Executives of all the SlalesJ with a request that the same may be laid before the next Gene ral Assembly of Tennessee. The states nf All buna and Mississippi have passed resolves re sponsive to the Resolves of Connecticut, in which Ihey maintain llie OLD GROUND of the South AGAINST the " PROTECTIVE POLI CY." Tint this Stale will miintain SIMILAR ground Willi her southern sister States, when the Resolves of Connecticut come to be considered by her Lglilalure, I CANNOT DOUI1T; in Ihe face of this evidence before us, none can be so I1LIND as not to see that the measure to ihs. tribute the proceeds nf Ihe salesofthe public lands ninong the States, is hut tho pioneer step lo the revival of the " protective tarifl'" JAMES K.

" ' ' uir wooi, is, now ever, a miner, in our uuiuuie opinion, ot no sin ill moment to thu wool grow ers of this pari of Ohio; and to tho whole State, the aggregate receipts for wool will swel to very great sum. In speaking of iho same subject tho St. Loins iNew fc,r.i lias llio lolloiving Wool. Yesterday morning wo noticed above thirty bales of very line wool that arrived in the Jas-per Irom the Counties of Fulton and Greene, in Illinois, It was owned by a Mt .More, who lias extensively engaged in thu Im-i tiess of raising and in inuf.icliinng wool. He h is one thousand sheep at his fold in Illinois and says that the prairies of the Wet are much better for rai-mg sheep and wool than the agri cultural lands n I'eniisvlvruia and Ohio Their wool is cleaner, their fleeces are le-s torn, and do not roniaiti so much oil, and on that account the wool is much holler lor niaiiufactuiiug pur poses. His wool is principally from Mexico or .Saxon sheep, and would cnmtnmd U7 1-2 cents per pound in this mirket. lie states that uiiiiy farmers are going ex'tensively into Iho sheep and wool business in that part of Illinois ; that farms aro opening for that purpose, and that mm sheep have been recently brought 011 from Ohio, some droves numbering as high as one thou, sand ; and that it is likely to become a very ex. tensive and lucrative business on the prairies. All tint can he mid in favor of Illinois, as a wool-growing country, is equally nppl cable to Missouri, and when wo will lnvo 111 my factor c for the purpose of making cloth in our own States. So long as we dep 'ti led on Great Ilritain fur our woolen cloth? rod clothing, we h id little iiso for wool ; but since our Whig Tariff h is af forded a fair protection to American wool and lo our woolen manufactories, a new impulse has been given to the business, and a wide and prof liable field has thus been opened 1' r the labor and enterprise of our farmers and manufacturers. Wo can conceive of nothing inoro absurd than for the people r.f the United Stales to send lull lions of dollars to Iviglaud for cloth mule of llritish wool and by British laborers, when .t can be raised and manufactured so advantageously iu our own country. It must he a Uritish party that would advocate euch a policy. Wo might fill our paper with similar testi mony to tho tieneficient operation of the TiirifTupoii the Wool-growing interest ; but we must for tho present content ourselves with the following additional article from the llli.ica (N. Y.) Chronicle : Ithaca Wool Market. Our village is bo. coining a great Wool Mart. Wool growers aro flocking iu with loads and parcels every day, and liiiding ready sale, for cash, at good prices. Sumo of our merchants are purchasing on their owu'accniint, and others as agent for eastern houses and manufactories. Some S70,0()U to 100,000 perhaps a larger sum will bo pud out for wool hero the present season. Tho pri ces of coarse grades aro full filly per cent, above tho prices of last year. Co.irso wool is especu ally in demand. The reason of this is to bo do. rived from tho operation of tho present tariff. Under the former tariff, wool costing less than 8 cents per pound was duty free ; and it impo. sea nosiitficiont guards against tho fraudulent introduction of fair grades; mixed with impu rities to reduco its cost to tho free rate. Hut under the presont larilT all wool costing ovor7 cents per pound pays a duty of 3 cents a pound specific, and 30 per cent ad valorem ; and all wool costing 7 rents or under, pays a duty of five per cent, and guarded provision is made to provent the fraudulent introduction of fair grades F.nding. Sept. 30ih, ia io, IStI, 1812, 1313, mixed with inpuritics nt 1 lii rate, by cstiin it-1 ing Ptirh wool nt what it would nxt Ireed from 'lnpuritic., and imposing upon it the higher rate f July. The effect has been tn restrict the importation, so tltitt it has fallen oil more than two. thirds, and Ihe deficiency has to !)? siippli- cd by ihe of American wool. Hence the i unl demand, and high prices. The finer grades of wool, though not ailvanc-' nd In prico last yearns much as the coarser, , are yet advanced from 2.) to !i3 per cent, with 1 i brisk dem tnd, ami ready cash ual Now, suppose you strike off this protecting duty on until, and the cqimalent tne on woolen good.--, ami admit Ihe importation nt both duty free, as the Hriliih free trade I'olkilrs desire, what effects would result ! Would the Ameri can manufactories continue in activity 1 Would the brik demiiul and cash payments for An cri can wool continue ? Would the valuable hutite market for other productions of the farmer his whoit, pork, butter, cic, which the prosperous condition of niatiufacturiii!? teenies, remain lo him 1 When American tmnufarJuring was prostra ted by Iln'ish free trade, could clothes be pur chased any cheaper! And when the maiiiil.ic. turers were driven Irom tho work shops to tho field, and employed in rai-ing wheat and pota toes for their own su-tcn nice, where would be the market for the's surplus ! Not in En nui, certainly, Irom wlionio the llritMi cloth would com-.' frco of duty. Huglai.d pro'ee.ts her- 11 n v heavy duties upon such articles, nnd tin specie, not the farmer's produce, mut go out ol llio country to pry lor llritish rlolh. im the farmer's ready and profitable mirket wou'd be lestroytd. v hy the manufjcti ries in tin: sin gle Slate of Massachusetts, if not in a single town in tint State, now ti--u more Xew-Vork and estern Hour in the .siiiule article of starch than all uur ex.iorlatiotts of the arliclo ! Those exlnicls show conclusively, what tlto Farmers themselves think of the opeiu lion ol'tho Turilf of ISlii upon their pecu liar interests. Thev have been taken, in euch case, fioin papers published at tho ve ry places ol which Ihey speak, mm give facts which come under their own obseivn liun.
