' Bui, Mr. Gayland, Kale and Irene (lliev were Ivvins) are now lucnty-lvvo years of age, and ulier they are (Imposed of llicre is Lucia and Florence, who tiro now even old enough to marry.' ' Yes, anil you forget my svveel L'tllie, lipre,' said Mr. Gayland, stooping lo a pale, sotier looking girl (bat sal by his side. A look of conii'inpl was cast on the iuof. fensive child bv beroiolber, as she nnsuciiil. Pshaw! I will keep Lillio lo lend the kitchen ; sho is too homely over lo gel a husband.' This was the most unfortunate irmark Mrs. Gayhmil could have made, fur Lillio was her f ilher's pel. lie loved tier bettor than either of his grown-up dnnglilets, and for ibis simple reason she best deserved bis love. Mr. Gayland was a very gnnd-tempeiod man, but one word against bis (billing child, Was enough lo exrile bis auger a long lime. On Ibis occasion, ho jumped up, walked tbe floor a few minutes, tbeii silting down and taking Lillio on bis knee, he said to his wife in a voire of stern calmness ' Maria, hmv cm you bo so unna'iiral a mother as lo hato your youngest boin, be cause she is weakly and not handsome 1 I (oil you,' be continued, Mi-ins bis voire, ' her heart and mind am priceless (.'ems in comparison with the vain beamy of Kale, Irene "nd Lucia.

A torrent of abuse dmve thn unhappy child to her f ilher's study, and with him sin: found Harvey Lestou. ' Lillio, my love,' said Iter father, go call Florelte.'

Lillio was divesting herself of her travel ling dress, ami Florelte, instead of assisting her, was gazing out upon tho lawn.

' Indeed, Flurelle,' answeied her father, somewhat sadly, ' I bupe you have mil lost your bearl. I know that gentleman well, and ho is engaged to a young ladv of ibis vil lage.' ' Engaged ! impossible, papa,' said Lu cia. ' He only visits here, and his eyes are alwavsno Florelte ; but hark, be rings.'

Any attempt to disturb or ilt'-lroy llie-e comprourscs, being lerois of ihe coiiipictnf Union, cm lead to none other than the must ruinous and disastrous onscqticnces. It is a source ot deep regret to it, in some efe government, consists in llio ndjusttr onl of our revenue laws, ami the levy of llio taxes neces sary for thn support of government. In the general proposition, tint no more money shall be collected lliinlhe necessities of an economi cal administration shall require, all parties seem in acquiesce. iNur docs there seem to bo any material difference of opinion as to the absence Jif right in Ihe government lo lax nne section of country, or one class of citizen", or one occu- patmn, lor the mere profit nf another. "Justice and sounil policy forb.d tho federal government tu footer rino branch nf Industry tu (he detriment of another, or to cherish the interests of one portion lo the injury of another portion of our common country." I nave heretofore declared to mv fellow citi zens that, in my "judgment, it is the duty of the government lo extend as far as nnv l,n nractica- hlo to do so, by its revenue laws, and all other means union its power, fair and just protection te all Ihe i-.-eat micfests of tho vv'mlo Uni 'ii. cm- bracing agriculture, manufactures, the mechan ic arts, commerce and navigation," I lino also declared my opinion lo be "in favor of a lariff fur revenue," and that "in adjusting the detuls of such a tariff, 1 have sanctioned such moderate discriminating duties as would produce the amount of revenue needed, and, at the same tunc, aflnrd reasonable incidental protection lo our home industry," and tlu.t I was opposed lo a tnnir for prelection merely, and nut fur reve nue." Tlio power " lo lay and collect tax's, duties, imposts, and exorcises," was an indispensable one lo bo conferred on llio federal government, which, without it, would possess no means ol providing foritsown support. In executing tins power, by levying a tanffof duties for lie' sup purl nl government, Ihe raising nfi-cmme should be the o(c,and protection Ihe incident. I o re verse thus principle, am in ilea vrntrction the oh ject ami reirnnc the incident, would be lo inflict mindct injustice upon all other than the pro- iccieu interests, in levying unties tor revenue, it is doubtless proper lo make such discrimina tions within the reicnue principle, as will affird incidental protection to our home interest. Within the revenue limit, there is a discretion to discriminate ; beyond tint limit, Iho rightful exercise of tho pmver is not conceded. The in cidental protection alf aded to our homo interacts by discrimination within the revenue range, it is behoved will be ample. In making discrimi nation, all our h itn" intcr'-sts should, as far a practicable, be equally protected. The laigest portion of our people are agriculturists.

Upon the s.itna principle that they would re' fuse to form a perpetual union with 7'exas, b cause of her local institutions, our forefathers would have been prevented from forming our present Union.
