JVKW YORK HKRAL1)New Vork, *lon?l?y, Ortohtf tf. 1H43 CK?- Mr. I. Willard ii onr cnly autboi ia-ed sg?nt for Uir Mlt-oi ttif lift <l>i in Trov, N Y. All jwsoni wishing the paper iu that city will apply only to him, at 480 Kiver ?.-?> t _ ft mplnynieiil ?? Kcina 1< - It >i t noil* Kffrrt* of Paper Money. There is, perhaps, at this moment no pari of the community which is Flittering more Irom the ttfecta t>l the overaction ot the paper system, and the incon .derail' interference o( lawyt-rs with commercial pursuit*, than that portion of our female community who have supj>ortcd themselves and their dependents by their needles. The extraordinary low prices which ?tre now paid for all descriptions ot needlework, reuder it a!iuost impossible for females v. ho have no other resource to provide themselves with necessaries. A female can now with the utmost diligence and economy, scarcely sustainjher current weekly expencee, even at the low rates at which the necessaries of lite are now to be procured. The immediate cause ot this is the great number of those who seek such employments, causing the supply of labor greatly to exceed the demand. The remote cau8<*, or that which increased the supply of labor, was the overflctiou of the paper system. In the f?w years preceding 1836-7, when speculation ran so high, and any <|unuuiy oi guuut< couiu ue purcnasea in Hie Atlantic cities upon credit, the trade in ready made linen and clothing, was pushed to an extraordinary extent.? Facilities were easily procured lor th# purchase of i otlis, and tor their nianulacture into clothing which was sold on long credits to the south and west, for notes which are discounted at the banks here, fur* u.?hing means lor fresh operations. One house, which tailed in 1837, in this line ol business, paid out . >'80,000 per annum to lemdles for their laoor. .Heady made linen, stocks and all branches were pushed to a similar extent. This created a demand for labor aud caus*d high prices. These prices brought into the city numbers from the country, to take advannge ol them, caused girls to quit service to engafie i i sewing, and induced vast numbers living under the paternal roof to undertake sewing in order to dress with greater extravagance. All this produced aa immense increase in the supply of labor, and its results were sold on credit to persons who consumed it and ne\er paid for it. When the revulsion came, all these great employers stopped, and thousands of girls were thrown out of employ. In 18-10, the num> ber of females in New York was as follows ^V'hite females, 10 to 16 years ot age 13.6o4 ix au 10 700 " " JO " 80 " " 40 6 U ?' " 30 " 40 " " it.'252 Tolal 93,140 Ol these 93,140 lemales between 10 and 40 years, at least 20,000 live by sewing. Of those,probably sew lor iheir clothes only. Now when the business was diminished by failure ot the houses engaged in it, and reduced only to that trade which furnished only the actual cash demand, at least one half of the 20,000 females were thrown out of employ. Those who worked the cheapest and best, continued to get employ. This latter class comprehends precisely those who work for their clothes only, and are not obliged to support themselves. Hence 10,000 needy and destitute femeles, who were tolled into the city, and from other employments, by a fictitious bank movement, are without resource. Legislative sanction having first produced the evil, now enhances it. Nearly all the linen ana clothes made in the city are sold to the agriculturists. The means ol those people to buy depends U|>on the sale of their produce. This produce, under the low range of the compromise tariti, they ?.\changed for foreign cloths, which were manufactured by the females in cities, and sold to the farmers, the home price of whose produce, was increased by the surplus having found a foreign market. Hence they could pay higher prices to the ' females who made the clothes. Under the present tariff, th?*y cannot send the surplus out of the country but to a limited extent ; because the law forbids ihetn from bringing home any thing in return. Hence it is that flour is but $4,30 per barrel. The farmers cannot, therefore, buy city made clothes, but they spend and wear their own flax and wool and make their own garments. The extent to which this is done may be estimated from the census returns, which gives the value of the home made goods in farmer's families at $25*,023, !N|| Kr? i inr rtrm utnr than oil *? "W, wvitig Qivatvi IIIUII UII Uiw i*'l' l^il tlUUIB 111 I. ]>orted. The value of these goods made in the farmers' families of New York was $4,636,547. If these goods were made in the city of New York, as they probably would be under a system of low duties, it would give $1,500,000 per annum to the feniales here in those employments. Nearly all theee tamily goods are made in the western count.re, the value an the northern district being $'4,273 713. These are someot the effects of unwise legislation, producing that depth of distress among the gentler ?ex, which results in the demoralizing scenes of Broadway of an evening. The same results are brought about in a greater or less degree in all cities and in all parts of the world. 1 he state of the working classes of England at this instant being the recults of the "protective"system, presents scenes of horror to which this country happily is yet a stran Ser In illustrat on of what we have been siyin*? ubout the employment of females, we will confine ourselves to that business in Lond?n.

The operation oi this brought out testimony of Messrs. Silver At Co. in relation to prices, as follows:?

The poorer quality of shirts are made at regular establishments at 11 cts. per piece, and in the work house three ihirtu are made for 2 cents! Beside this, ?'th< r testimony appeared, as follows.? And on this question what, in 1841, said AniVForeinan, a widow,at that time in Wapptng workhouse, ?md u |iMi>d workwoman * " When I have made a! plieati< n at the wnrehouses for work, f have been i-i)d that thi y could get the articles made at the workhouses at hull the price." Again, " He I ore I 4 Htne here, I i r.deavored to support myself by shirt making. Shirts for which 1 used to receive Is 4d. M-cre reduced to 9d each, and other things in proportion.

Why the fe males are making three shirts lor two cents, and the men are rioting and starving. This is the result of the " protection of the lawyers." The same system will produce inevitably the san e results here. The matter manufacturers will swell in wealth and importance and become rich and powerful, and the masses ol the people will starve. County Nominations.?The Democratic County Convention to nominate candidates for Sherttt, County Clerk aud Coroner, meet to-morrow evenins, by adjournment, to conclude the business entrusted to their charge. On Friday night, after nine ballotings, they were still unable to make any choice, the last ballot being for Henry Atwood, 34; John Kmmans, 20; John J. Westervelt, 17; and Wm. C. Seaman, 11. In thispositionof affairs they adjourned until Tuesday evening. The total number of delegates being 85, whoever is nominated, must receive the sanction of 43, oi a majority of all present. This delay of four days will give such an opening lor the accomplishment ol private intrigue and trade between the delegates that a nomination will most probably transpire at their next meeting. The pre. sumption is that a portion ol the Iriends of Atwood and Westcrvelt will unite, and as the Seaman men will throw their strength into that scale it is most probable that Atwood will be nominated for Sheriff, with an understanding that Westcrvelt is to be re luincu in me present piece as i naer snerill The f riends of one of the three prominent men must give way, and we thick this result more probable than that the friend* of Emmans and We6tervelt will unite. The great disadvantage under which Westrrvrlt works is, that the present Deputy Sheriffs are neatly ail ins advocates, and the presumption, therefore, is, that if he 16 nominated they will be retained in office. The other candidates being not bound by such trammels are free to promise as many deputy, ships as there are delegates in the convention or ad* vocates in the street. This " tickle me" sort of position has a wondrous influence among a body of men selected as the delegates to this convention were. It is a great point in the game, and if well played by those who are in pursuit of office, will effect much. The next trick is the playing off for the offices of Coroner and County Clerk. Many a delegate will be seduced from his path of duty to his constituents by professions of deep, shrewd designing and dishonest men in the delegation, who will "honorably promise," if he will support their candidate lor sheriff, they will go for his candidate lor Coroner or County Clerk, or perhaps for both. They will thus secure vote after vote, and when their end is accomplished do as they please in perfoiming the promise made that produced such a result, as the secret system of selection by ballot instead of a viva voce vote effectually secures them against all detection. It becomes this convention to select as candidates for these impor i lam viiiucs iiiV11 vnioer n'|>uiuuon, wnose sterling | integrity, whose intelligence and firmness of character, will be unquestioned, as none other can ever be elected by the people of this proud city. The offices of Sheriff and Coroner are brought in Buch immediate counexion with the people, that unless the names of such men are recommended, party trammels will be thrown aside, and the candidates of the Whig party elected. No two offices within the gift of the people are so liable to corruption by temptation, from dishonest and corrupt men, and as no legislative principle is to be effected by their election, party usage will not be adhered to if the candidates are men unfit or incapable of performing the duties of the office. The "Whig delegates elected on Friday last, meet on Monday next to recommend candidates for these offices, as ulso for members of Assembly. The present candidates for Sheriff are Col. Jones, of the Sixth ward,late Keeper of the City Prison; and Captain Alexander H. Schultz. For County Clerk, MorrlsFranklin, Esq , late Alderman of the Seventh ward, and present State Senator, and Get rge Eichells. For Coroner D*. Griscom, and some dozen otner physicians. The Whig Senatorial convention, meets at th e Broadway House to-morrow at 12 o'clock, and if Senator Franklin refuses a renomination for Senator, he will probably be recommended for County Clerk at the Convention on Monday next. The Presidential delegates from each Congressional district, chosen on Friday last, being all Clay men, meet on Monday of next week, to select from each district to represent this city in the Whig National Convention to be:,held at Biltimore in May next. The delegates of the American Republican party, meet this evening at the Fourteenth Ward Hotel, to nominate candidates lor State Senatcr, Sheriff, County Clerk, Coroner, and Assembly. This party, professing a strict adherence to nothing but pure and unadulterated Americanism, have increased at an astonishing pace within the past few months in this city. The result of their proceedings will therefore, be eyed with interest by politicians. This will be an exciting week in politics. Presidential Delegates.?'The leaders of the Caihoun party in this State have concluded to recommend elections to be held in the several Congressional districts for delegates to the National Convention, in the month of March next. We understand, also,that the Van Buren men, fearing that delegates thua sent, fresh from the ranks of the people, will be accepted by the Conven ion, and those selected at Syracuse rejected, avow an intention gi running delegates in opposition tothe Calhoun party, in order to secure a nortion of the second set in favor of their candidate. John Kef.d, alia*Clinton.?Oliver M. Lowndes, Eiq , who went to England with officer Benjamin F. Hayes, to recognise Reed, who is supposed to Wc the person who commuted the extensive forgeries on the house ot Jacob Little & Co. and the southern batiks, returned in the Great Western on Saturday. Officer llays remained until the 4th of this month, in order to obtain the decision of Lord Aberdeen, whether Reed was to be given up or not under the new treaty. The impression of the offi* Cf-r is that such will not be the case, and he will therefore be compelled to return without him. The evidence agains: Reed 11- scarcely sufficient to hold h.m in custody, and the offence was also committed previous (o the ratification of the Ashburton treaty, that compels the delivery of escaped rogues. Sound Steamers ?The Mastachussetts left on Siturday afternoon lor Stonington, with a large number of passengers, but before getting into the Sound broke some trifling part of her machinery, which obliged her to return. The Worcester, about the same tune broke her shaft, and was towed to the city. The passengers of both bsats were transferred to the Xurragunsett, which bont left yesterday afternoon lor Stonington The same northeast gale on Saturday prevented the departure of the Rhode Island from Stonington at the usual hour, and Mie had not arrived whea we went to press. The Massachusetts and Rhode Island will soon be withdrawn from the line, and the Nnrrngansett and Mohegan be substituted. The Massachusetts will be overhauled, and a new engin* put into her. The Rhwde Island is to be lengthened und remodelled, so as to increase her "peed. They will be in order to take their places again early in the sprinir, and will, without doubt, be the most splendid boats in the country. Stbkkt L<iafkts ?There can be no greater nuisance than the collections at street corners, ol rowdy cigar smoking boys < >n Sunday,enjtecially, these idls vagabonds obstruct the passage way, insult la dies, and awault way-fur*-!* with perfect impunity. This is particularly the race in (hand street?every corner, from th?* Bowery to the past river, ha* its own separate riot. The oflicrrn of the ward are i exceedingly remise The Great Fair at Niblo's and the Vaijxhai.l Gardens.?The Sixteenth Annual Pair of the American Institute opens on Tuesday next, and nothing else will be thought of by our citizens, old aud young, for the next two weeks. The Fair will be the all-absorbing topic. Politics, Tylerism, Van B irenia:n, Calhounism, Mesmerism, Mormonism and all other i-me, must give way before the American Institute-ism. Every thing will be there, and every one will go to Bee every thing?all wiil be competition, crowding, crushing, and rushing. Not a young lady in New York, or a hundred miles around it, but will be certain to visit the Fair, to admire and to be admired. Beaux will be in constant requisition, l'apas, uncles, sweethearts, cousins, and thirty-first cousins, from the grandpapa ol seventy to the interesting darling little brother ol ten summers. Statesmen, Governors, Congressmen, politicians, musicians, physicians, dentists, wig makers, and makers of every thing from a penny whistle to a steam engine. All will be busy, bustling, and benevolent, and all are sure to be delighted; for tiiis Fair will (ar surpass any and every one ol its predecessors, in the number, variety and beauty of the articles of American skill, ingenuity, and handcraft; and cannot fail to establish the preeminence of American citizens in all that appertains to science, arts, agriculture and manufactures. The managers, among whom are some of our most enterprising fellow citizens, have Bpared no eilorts to discharge their duties faithfully. The moment me rair 01 iM2 cioeea, me preparations lor 1S43 were commenced. Letters were sent to every Governor, Senator, and distinguished citizen of the Union, urging on them the great benefits which must result to the country from sucli exhibitions, and inviting competition in every branch of American industry. Replies have been received, giving the latest, the fullest and the most interesting reports of the exertions making in the several States?the whole forming a most valuable collection of documentary evidence of the increasing progress of our noble Republic in civilization. Samples of manufactures, mechanic arts, improvements, inventions, and agricultural produce have been received from all,and will establish for this Fair a character, and an interest never before possessed by any other, either here or in any other State of the Union. The Silk Convention, the assembling of the State Agricultural Society, the Plonghing match at Paterson, N. J., and the great Cattle Exhibition at the Vauxhall Garden, are all items of the deepest importance to every patriot. The Machinery department has been considerably increased, and the number oi working models will exceed that on any previous occasion. A bag of cotton in the seed has been sent from South Carolina by an enterprising cotton grower, and a number ol product8 from seeds, exhibited at the last fair, and distributed among the members, will be shewn A new feature has been added in the livestock depart" nient, which will excite no small attention among the female visiters. A poultry pen has been laid out in the Vauxh&ll, and an active competition has been going on for the past year among the farmers' wives,as to who shall bear home the premium for the best turkey,rooster and Michaelmas goose. Twentyfive premiums are offered in this department. The horticultural department has received numerous additions to its list of contributors, and the committee are most sanguine in the result of their ef~ forts. The variety, richness, beauty and high perfection of the productions promised, as well by professional as by amateur floriculturists, (among the latter, we notice a number of ladies as competitors,) will entitle the horticultural room to the cspecial attention of the visiters. In this and the agricultural department, the following premiums are offered :? 4 goM medals, 30 silver cups, 36 Bilver medals, and 101 volumes of standard works, appropriate to the different objects?besides numerous discretionary premiums for supplies of flowers, or for such other articles in the department as the judges may deem entitled to especial distinction. .The Board of Agriculture, have been most liberal in their arrangements, and the exhibition ot pure blood, improved, native stock, at the Vauxhall, will surpass everything of the kind ever before offered to the public. In every department the utmost activity prevails, and all anticipate a most glorious result.

Benjamin Rathbun .returned to Buffalo, says the Gazette, on Tuesday night, and was visited the following day by many of ihe citizens.

The true excellence of the representation ef the favorite ot Bellini's opera at Niblo's is Signor Valtellina's Oroveso; it is the most graphic picture of true tragedy we ever remember seeing. The malediction and response of the high priests at the end of the firrt act is truly sublime and most powerful. Whatever may be the result of the varied opinions of Signora'e Cor&ini and Majocchi,and previous Norma'sand Adalgisa's, but one conclusion with regard to the original talent of Signor Valtellina. Since Fnrnasari we have had nothing approaching him. Siguora Majocchi is to give a Cavatina from Bellini's opera of " Romeo and Juliet." Bellini is the most popular of the "by gone" composers. He wrote eight operas, but three of which have ever been heard in New York, however; we are to have them, we perceive, by instalments?the first to night. Mr. T.

Scovi I, Strong, Works The Court adjourned until 10 o'clock on Monday I morning lor want of a quorum. Kcsski.i/s Plamtakiitm ? De. Lakdnke ?On Saturday morning Dr. Lardner made a personal application to the Vice Chancellor, laying belore him the extreme hardship anil injustice with which the injunction granted in this case on an eiparte application operated, and succeeded in convincing his lienor of the propriety of granting a speciEl order lor hearing the motion to dissolve the injunction, without wailing for the regular day, which would be the 16th inst. The Vice Chancellor has accordingly appointed Wednesday morning for the motion. The circumstances of thin case seem to be pretty nearly as follows:?M. Gouraud, a French gentleman, who practised the art of Daguerreotype, and gave lectures on mnemonics or " phrenotechny," as he called it, was engaged last tall by the proprietors of the planetarium, to exhibit that inetruinent> and explain it to the public. After lecturing on it in this city last winter, he discontinued the exhibition in March, packed up the instrument, and deposited it, as his own property, in a warehouse or >u. fi : 1 e 1 a ciuuiivuov iu me ly. x uric n rrmuiuru tur tiuuui six months. The proprietors, meanwhile dissatisfied with Gouraud's proceedings during its exhibition, aid still more indignant at seeing the instrument shut up and allowed to remain so long unproductive and useless, applied at length to the Courts lor redress, and recovered legal possesion ol it,giv. ii:g the security ol two wealthy citizens for #24,000 each to satiety any claims which Gouraud might es. tablish agamst them. They then agreed to sell to Dr. Lardner more than half the propeny in the ap. paratus, the I)Jctor agreeing to use it in illustration ol his lectures on astronomy. M Gouraud, now, without making any demand on the proprietors, or giving any notice ol his intention, or in short making any complaint whatever, filed a bill in chancery, and upon an affidavit verifying such bill, made an exparte application to the Assistant Vice Chanceller, upon which he obtained the present injunction, being required to give no oiher security except his own bond for $700. M. Gouraud, it is sworn, is, or was recently an applicant for the benefit of the bankrupt act, yet in this case he has sworn himself to be worth $1500 over and above all just debts. The injunction was 6erved on Dr. Lardner on the 28.h September. By the rules of court a cepy of the bill ought to have been served within six days afterwards. It appears by the affidavit produced on Saturday that no copy of the bill had then been served The defendants are therefore kept in the dark as to the nature or grounds of M. Gouraud's complaints.

Dr. Lardner has proved that the proprietors of the planetarian have already incurred a loes by this proceeding, amounting to not less than $1500, (double the amount of Gouraud's bond,) and that their loss will rapidly accumulate by delay. We are informed that the value of this splendid piece of illustrative mechanism, with all its appendages, is estimated at little less than $20,000. In the hands of a man of extensive scientific attainments, endowed with the power of presenting science to a popular assembly in an attractive and intelligible style, it is haid to say what such an instrument may not be worth. From the reception which Dr. Lardner's lectures have met with in every part of the Union, during his late tour, he expresses much confidence that he will be enabled to render this instrument of very great public utility to the nation, in a sequestered corner of which that mechanical ingenuity and spirit were found which produced the finest piece of illustrative machinery (as we are assured it is) that can be found in any part of the world. Newark, N. J. [Correspondence of the Herald.1 Newakk, N. J., Oct. 5, 18J3. Family Jars?Progress of Partisanship?Approach, oj the Crisis. Dear Ben.nett :? Since my last letter to you, the political sea of this district has continued " to cast up mire and dirt," with tenfold more fury ; and its wavee iu their upheavings, appear to have thrown on the eurface al the scum and froth which had settled to the bottom during their long calm. A most uproarious political meeting was held last night in Stewart's Saloon. This meeting was called by the Pennington clique, but the Pet Halsted clique, nothing daunted, attended in large numbers. It was as " ring streaked and speckled" an assemblage as old Tammany could ever boast ol in her most palmy days? " Mongrel, puppy, whelp and hound, And cur of low degree," assembled to bark and yell at the good and bad things about to be si id to them. Comparative or. der being finally restored, a president and half a score of vice presidents were duly elected, together with three or four secretaries. Resolutions were drafted, and read, and all things appeared to be going on smoothly, when Io!high above the heads of the audience, in the little gallery appropriated to the musicians, which had hitherto been entirely vacant, suddenly appears the immaculate 'Pet." Not more surprised were Saint Cuthbert's monks when " Stood Herold, the dauntless, in midst of the hall," than were the,leaders of the opposing clique. But like those venerable monks, they soon recovered their self-potsession. The air was rent with hisses, yells and groans, mingled with cries of " carry him out." But ne, having very prudently drawn up the ladder by which he had obtained his elevated position, laughed to scorn the nunv threats and] jeers of the ignoble crowd ; and, like the stately Juno, high above the sea of heads, i-talked in awful grandeur that "god-like mun " Having exhibited himself lor some time, amid the maledictions of our clique, and the cheers of the other, he proceeded like the velliant Mike Walsh, on a similar occasion, to seat himself on the bannisters, and taking front his pocket pencil and paper, commenced taking notes of the proceedings of the meeting. The first speaker was Chas. Kiag, Esq., formerly editor of the N. Y. American, whe is an adopted member of " the family." He spoke for sometime, endeavoring to throw nil the blame from his own shoulders, and from those of his constituents, on to the other clique. In the course of his remarks, lie said somethinr derogatory to the gentleman in the gallery. That worthy youth slowly casting his eyes Irom the sheet on which he was writing, with the greatest tang froid, informed the audience that it was "a damn'd lie"; after which spirited remark he once more resumed his labors, uamindful of the commotion! which he hadjereated amongthe crowds below him After several other speeches were delivered, among the best of which, was that of the Secretary of the famous Patterson Delegation, in which he iried ?o make the peeple believe (hat all the nice operations of the. clique at that place, were purely accidental, the meeting was nddrtssr-d by Mr. A C. M. Penninptou, who answered the accusations of Mr. Hulsted, made against him at a public meeting a few evenings since, fir-coming excited, lie Rave the "lie direct" to the little gentleman in the gallery. "Pel" did not know how to resent this insult exactly, but alfr considering a moment, he 1'iaccu iuc illume in iiih iigui n&na upon inc exiremity of hip nose, and pointed all the fingers of the aforesaid hand directly towards his honorable opponent, which deed of noble daring, drew tremendous cheering from his clirjur, and turned the laugh upon his enemy. In the course of the evrning, Mr. Kiauey was presented to the audience amid the most obstreperous noises ol all kinds. He gave his hearers his confession of faith, thanked them lor theii kindness, and departed. He does not appear to have the slightest idea that he is but the mere foot hall Ol a cltqut? "O w?'1 wmr pow'r the giftie gie ?> To nee ourscl'* an others ?ee u,?" thought I, as I saw him stand before nennble men, attempting to make them believe that he was a freeman, w hile the ineanett ol his auditors, if hey could butonceenter into his feelings, would not have changed situations with hun. The meeting finally adjourned when Pet attempted to make a speech to >i few Btra^glers who remained.

Decisions, Oct. 1?Janet Ludlow vs. JIustin Otis ? This woa a motion for a i.ow trial, upon a bill of exceptions In 1811, the plaintitt, by agent, made an arrangement with the defendant to import from Liverpool a bill of crockery, to be delivered within lour and a half months from dnte of order, at the defendant's store at Truxton Cortland county, N. Y?terms cash, on delivery. The goo ts were ordered and delivered ; meantime Otis had sold out to a Mr. Sage, and on demanding payment, Sage gave his note at 60 days, payablw at the Bank of Syra cuse for the amount, $2 .'8,52, which note was protested at maturity ; Otis subsequently naid $100 on it, and promised to puy the balance when ue came down to New York. The defence set up was that the plaintiff', by his agent, ha 1 accepted Siige as his debtor tu the place of Otis. Judge Uhhoeffer charged that the note of a thirl party is not payment of a previous debt, unless it was so expressly agreed, and if so expressly agreed to take the note at the risk ef the creditor, it was a binding agree merit, and that taking a note without such agreement merely suspended the right of action during the time the note wai to run.

This startling fact is evident, from the im. ports into the whole United States for the year ending September 30,1943. They amount only to $50,000,000 !! A smaller amount than any year during the present century with the exception of the two years of war, 1813 and 1814. They are less than under Jefferson's embargo, notwithstanding that the population, wealth and resources ol the United States liave increased so prodigiously. This inct is the moro interesting to the citizens of New York, XrHpn if is ennsi^nror) that r*t ?lio ?/?? ???? ??? ' the Union centres here. What will become of our navy, our marine, and our national character, if this worse than Chinese policy ii persisted in ? How frequently do the advocates of commercial ruin, appeal to the oil restrictive policy of England, as the moans of her greatness. At what period of the world was the English protection confined to one branch of her industry at the expense of all the rest 7 The first care of her government his ever been to fjster her shipping interest; for that was the navigation act passed. It was a mistaken policy, which she has nearly abandoned, although while Europe was continually at war, and the United States were her colonies, she became great in spite of her restrictions. At this age of the world, when all tne nations of the earth have come into the field of commerce in competi' tion, and the greatest success depends upon the greatest skill, industry, and economy, the United States hava roluntarily destroyed their own commerce, in order to benefit a class of manufacturers, who to thejwhole population, are as one to 1 to 20. In the midstof a commercial community surrounded by 350,000 persons, whose business has been lessened $50,000,000 in one year, tho Courier calling itself a commercial paper, stated as follow* on Saturday What in this is most gratifying to the patriot, is tho fact th?t the evils which the Kree Trade Party predicted would follow, have not resulted from the adoption of that wise measure; on the contrary, all the good has been accomplished that was anticipated by the most sanguine advocateofthe protective policv; if we except only the shipping interests, which although suffering, is gradually adapting itself to the new state of things. This is consoling, ibdued. The shipping interests of a great nation?the nursery of our navy, on the efficiency of which alone the political isfl 'ccice of the Union depends, is doing the best it can under hostile legislation.? Yet we'are told that "all the good has been accomplished that was anticipated from the tariff." The customs receipts (or the year for the whole Union are short of <11,000,000! while the ordinary expenses have been $23,000,900. The necessary result has been a large debt and a deficit of $6,000,000 in the means of tlio Treasury between now and the 1st of January. Thii perilous condition of the Federal Treasury, is the in< evitable result of the embargo on commrrse, it is, which alarms those who have brought it about. To supply the doficit there exists authority to issue Treasury notes bearing an interest not exceeding 6 per cent. The projected movement of the Sacretary in issuing these notes at a nominal interest and making them payable on (lorn and, is an evil which has necessarily grown out of the present tariff. The Government was deprived of its revenues by the tarifl, and allowed to issue Treasury notes bearing interest. The same tariff, by ruining commerce, destroyed the demand lor money. The Government is obliged to borrow, and the Secretary takes advantage of the market to do so on the best terms he can, and this is to borrow the money, not of the banks, but of the people at large. If the notes bearing a high rate of interest are issued to the banks, the banks will issue their paper money to the people. The operation will then be tor the* Government to.pay the banks $300,006 per annum, and the people will hold as a circulating medium $4,000,000 of bank paper money. By the proposed project the peo pie hold the Gjvernment paper directly, without expense to the Treasury. If the banks took the notes they might issue any quantity of their own bills they please.? The Government cannot issue more than $4,000,000? Thus the worst feature of paper mo ley, unlimited hsue, is removed. The Richmond Enauirer is in error in sun posing that we advocate government paper money as a general thing, any more than we advocate public debt ? But the debt has been created, not by the Executive, but by the infamous tariff, which has crushed commerce, ruineil the business of thousands, and deprived the Government of revenue. One object of the tariff party is to create a national debt, which has already awollen to $ < 000,004, at an annual expense of $1,2.~iJ,000 Now we advo cate the movement of the Treasury on the ground that it is the best and cheapest mo.le in which a debt, created by party iniquity, can be contracted, and to exist only until the people have remedied the matter. When the public debt bears no interest it Ml'jrds no plunder to the stack jobber. On Friday we published the imports of free articles. into the United States for the years 1943?1843.
