The correspondence having ceased, we have, at the soli citations of many of our readers, concluded to give he last letter, remarking that so far as the princi ples therein contained are concerned, we give, them without comment, considering the statistical facts mportant to both political parties. Bostox, Feb. 23,1840. My Dbab Sir?When I wrote to yon on the 10th of lent month, I proposed to present in another letter some facts in regard to the progress of the spinning of cotton sines the Brat high protective tariff in 1810, to the cotton year, ending 31st of August, 1816. These I shall offer for the special consideration of those who inhabit the cotton growing region of our country ; and of those who brought forward and carried that law through Congress. The tariff of 1818 was founded in wisdom, and I am ready here to make my acknowledgments to those dis tinguished statesmen of the cotton growing States, who successfully consummated an act that has done so much to promote the prosperity of the whole Union. The primary object on the part of those members of Congress representing the cotton planting States, in es tablishing a high protective tariff, was to extend the consumption el their great staple in this country, by excluding foreign made cotton fabrics, and substituting a domestic article manufactured ol American cotton ? I think the authors of the tariff law of 1810 may con gratulate themselves end their countrymen, on the com pleto success that has followed from the adoption of the minimum of twenty.Ave cents the square yard, oonteia ed in that bill. Under its beneficial operation we have been enabled to supply our own population with cottons of tho coarse and middling qualities, and to export to foreign countries to the amount of four or Ave millions of dollare annually?for which wo receive in payment tee, coffee, auger, bides, copper. Icc. 1 heee goods, the pioduct of our own labor, hare become a substitute for coin, in the several countries to which they are shipped. It would seem that tho founder* of this system of high protection to labor, oaght to be satisfied with its results, as the quantity oi cotton now spun in the United States is far grsatsr then tna most sanguins of Its friends snti cipatod in 1818. According to a statement made up by Mr. P. T. Jackson, and Mr. John A. Lowell, for the use of the tariff convention held in New York, in 1832 the home consumption of eotton prior to the passage of the act of 1810, was eleven million* of ponnde, being about ihrea-eighto of the quantity now spun at Lowell. Tho quantity spun in Great Britain in 1810,was eighty eight millions of pounds. There are no data to be relied upon tor continuous returns of homo consumption, be tween 1810 and 1898-1896. In 102A-*37, the returns were mads in a New-York pries currant, and they have since be?n continued, and are deemed to bo as correct as the nature of tho case will admit In 1820-*27, the amount spun in the United States was 103,483 bales, which we may estimate at 330 lbs each, [net of tars] equal to >4,149,390 lbs. In the same veer, the quantity spun in Great Britain was 197,300,000 pounds. Krom 1828 to 1830 was a period of embarrassment and distress among manufacturers; consequently the consumption ot 1829-*30 was only 120.812 balsa, of about 343 pounds each, amounting to 43,040,040 pounds; while the consumption in Great Bri tain was 347,600,000 pounds. At this period some of our Southern mends, who had been foremost in advocating hum* manufactures, and had counted largely on the benefits anticipated by them in 1816, from the operation ?i the protective policy, (as grssiUy eugmsmiag the con sumption of their staple,) began to maniiaat dissatisfac tion, with what they considered the alow pts^iais of our cotton manufactures. The idea entermaMd, end put terth, was, that we should nover require so much, as to bear any considerable proportion to tho consumption of Great Britain. Thia, as will be shown, was a false view ot th* case, and Ui prorad a capital arror. In 18IJ "33 the quantity tpun at home reached 104,413 bale*, averaging parhapa WtO pound* each} in 1834- 36, 334,783 balai; in 1-37-TJti. 346,063 bale*} in 1839-'40, 304,103 bale*-, in 164i-'43, there waa deep commercial and manulacturing diatreaa, and conanmption receded to 367,840 bale*. In the latter part of the year 1843, and in 1843, after the present tariff law went into operation, a revival of bnainea* throughout th* country took place, and brought np the amount apun to 316,139 bales. In 1644 44, (year ending Slat of Auguat last,) the amount spun waa 380,000 bale*. Thar* i* a quantity of cotton consumad In th* interior of the States,, never having ranched th* eaaporte, is not included in tha New York statement, that has bean estimated to be at iaaet 41,000 bale*) we shall tharalor* estimate the total quantity at 430,000 bales, of 410 pounds each, net, making a total of 176,300,000 pounds a* the consumption last year, against 11,000,000 pounds in 1316 - being a pe riod of twanty-iiinsjrears. Th* consumption in Orent Britain has gone an steadily increasing, but not in so ratio a* in the United hlsles. The retnma fer 1644 have been received,* and ?mount to 440,000,300 pounds against 173,300,000 pounds in the United Males. Thus the inoreese in the Uoitsd 8tttss,iroa 1010 to 1344, has extended from 11,000,000 to 176,300,000 pounds in 30 years, being an augmentation of ?ixteenfold. The increase in Orent Britain in the same period of time has been from 88,700,000 pounds to 640, 000,000 pounds: being an augmentation of less than sevenfold, against an increase In the United Mates jf sixteen/old Tease are not only striking, bnt Important facts, and pre asm n viaw of tho ease, wnicli refutes the anticipa tions of those who entertained different opinions of tho fatnro increase of tho spinning of cotton in this country Atteaa years ago. 1 cannot but hop# that tha viaws and ?pinion* ot so mo of th* prominent men of the South may undergo n change, when they examine this question dispassionately; and that they wiU come to the conclu sion that Ihty are doaply intonated in the spinning, as wall as in tee producing of cotton, at home. As regards the latere, if the general peace of the wotld be main tained, and the leading business concerns of the coun try an not disturbed by the legislative aotion of the fed eral government, than is no reason why the increased homo demand for cotton should net go oo in as npld a ratio as during th* paat. This wouia bo doubling th* present consumption in a little more than eight years. Than an new an immense number of apiadies under construction in a majority of tho States, (probably not less than 400,000,) all of which are intended to be in ope ration befon the first of January, 1840, and tha probabili ty is that at that time the quantity of cotton spun will reaoh *40,(00 bales, of 410 pounds each, or 360,600,400 pounds. Then will, also, be a great incnate in Ureat Britain, but not in too same proportion , as wo possess some advantage* in the manufacture of heavy goods, which en not enjoyed in bogiand.

Upon a review of this branch of industry, it appear* to me that it* fature proapecta are excellent, if not disturb ed by bad banking, and (what i* (till more pernicious to all branches of basin***) unstable and unwise legisla tion. The tariff has already been altered letreral time* (1 believe six or seven) since 1816. If the present n ovement ngainst the act of 1843 shall succeed, in accordance with Mr. Walker's plan, it must be followed soon by a counter movement; if not on the part of the people, the government itsell will recommend it, for revenue. It may be truly asserted that the coarse cotton fabrics, such aa are worn by the laboring classes, are sold as cheap here as in England, or in any part of the world. Of course there is no further burden imposed on the Con sumers of this description of home made goods. It ha* been said that the existing duties on cotton goods pre vent importations of almost every kind. This is so far ftora the fact, that for the last three years, the amount of Cotton, and mixed cotton and worsted fabrics, printed and plain, imported, have been larger than in former years, having ranged from 610.000,000 to $13,000,000. Tail large amount is of the finer descriptions, and such a* are worn by the fashionable and rich. We shall continue to import largely of these luxuries, so long as our peo ple have surplus mean* to expend in dress ; and the per manent revenue, under the presenLsystem, will be much freater than under that proposed by the Secretary of the reasury. The question has often been asked, why not reduce the duties on cottons, if you can sell them so low 1 I answer, that the duty now is nearly inoperativa, entirely so, on tome kinds, inch, for example, as are exported in large quantities If the duties were reduced materially on the coarse goods, 1 should intorposo no objection, provided ample protection was maintained on the mid dling and fine qualities. This is a matter to bo carefully arianged by practical man Wa have now certainly nothing to fear in the manufacture of yarns as high as No. 14; so far, we can go on without protection, hot the higher numbors require protection, and it should bo s specific duty. The law, as it now stands, although ino perativa on coarse cloth, gives confidence to the invest ment of capital in machinery, for the manufacture of finer fabrics; in fact,* very large amount ia already invested in mills, which produce yarns end cloth as high as No. SO. Without protection, and that in the form 01 specific du ties, there will he no increase of machinery adapted to the middling and fine fabrics. The great amount ol printed calicoes require protection, and will suffer se verely without it. i wilt not dwoll longer on this sub ject of cotton. 1 trust 1 have presented lscta enough to ?atiily the cotton plantar, that his interests have been promoted by creating another market, and a larger one, too, for the spinning of his staple. We actually con sume [wear] mora pounds of coltou in this country than in Great Britain?since nearly mora than two-thirds of the quantity spun in that country is exported in the form of yarn* and cloth. We work up more than Franca, and quite as much as 60,000,000 of German*. Our con somiug ability of this, and all other comforts of Ufa, is beyond that *f an equal number of persons ot any other country, and five times as great aa that of Russia. The factories of only Messachusstt* and a neighboring State, spin annually 180,000 bales of catton. We received one million of barrels of flour (more than the whole export of the United 8tales to foreign countries) the last year. The amount of products ol 8tates out of New England, taken by Massachusetts the lart year, amounted to $40,000,000, in ootton, load, wool, angar, coal, iron, flour, grain of all sorts, pork, beef, lard, tobacco, rice, fcc. kc , for which we have paid in the products ol our labor; and this it a steady ana increasing market for the articles I have named. In fact, tha State of Maseachueetts (not to speak of tha other New England States, which are all laurga consu mer") affords greater support to the agricultural aDd planting States, south end west, than any othar in tha Union, and greater to the strictly agricultural States han all foreign countries The tariff of 1049 was enaot than all foreign ed as much for tha benefit of the Southern and Western States, as for Massachusetts, and they have derived as much advantage from it in proportion to their capital. Of the truth of this declaration, they will be satisfied, after a year's experience under Mr. Walker's plen of low ad valorem duties. The notion is prevalent, I am fully aware, that tha Northern and Eastern States, those engaged In manu facturing, enjoy tha principal benefits from the present tariff. But this is not the case. By reference to tho fol lowing quantitos of protected articles, produced out of New r-ngland, almost wholly, you will see that there are othar great protected interests in the oeontry be sides the manufacture of cotton and wool. Tha duties on these are from 40 to 100 per cent, and on spirit* to a greater extent. There are produced from 440 to 600,000 tons of iron. 990,000,600 pounds of sugar. 90,000,000 pounds maplo sugar. 0 to 19,000,000 gallons of molasses. 4 to 7.000,000 tons of coal. 60 to 60,000,000 pounds of wool. 10 000,000 bushels salt 00 to 70,000,000 gallon* of spirits, mostly from grate. 13 to 14,000,000 yards of cotton bagging. 90,000,000 pounds ol bale rope and twine. ft) to 00,000 ton* of hemp and flax. To this list might be added twenty miner articles, worth, in the aggregate, more than the wnole amount of cotton fabrics produced ia the United States. Iron, we still import 70 to 80,000 tons, including near ly all used on ruilroads, which can and will be pro duced at home, as soon aa increased capital is acquired. W* now produce more iron than Franc* or Rossis, or any other country save Great Britain, whose produot is now 1,400,000 tons. Within a few years there oan be no doubt that tha pro duct uf iron will bt doubled, provided that the prospe rity ol the country Is not interfered with by experiments made by Congress en the labor and currency of the country, which is s greater discouragement to branches of business requiring large fixed capital, than ia imagin ed by many 01 our legislators who make end unmake tariffs. It is estimstad that at the present price* of "U^sr, the cultivation, in a very briaf parted of tima, will be ax tended to the required home consumption, now about 600,000,000 pounds, which in ton yoers may be 600,000,000 pounds, i nave no doubt that the best interests of tho nation raquiro that tha preaant duty on auffar ahould ba maintained, with othar protective dutiea. Thl" exten sion of sugar cultivation will amploy a lsrge amount af labor now devoted to the production of cotton. It would soorn that savaral States of this Union might with profit multiply the occupations of labor. It ap pear* to me, tboy require now sources of support, end the progress and condition ol their population, with tha amonnt of pnduotien, preaant to tha reflecting portion of the people a strong argument in favor of snoh now sonrcaa; 1 will state a few facta. . The Stat* ol Virginia contains <4,000 squaro mites, had in 1840,1,130,797 inhabitants, being less than 16 to the square mile; gross products, according to Professor Tucker, $76,760,043. New York contains 48,000 square mil**; had in 1840, 3,198,617 inhabitant#: products in the same year $103,? 806,433; add the prodact of navigation as distinct from commerce, which ia omitted, on 040,000 ton* shipping, $30,000 <W0; making in the aggregate $913,000,000. In 1790, by the first oenaus, Virginia had 19 peratns to the square mile, and New York 7j; now, Virginia con tains 10, and New York 43 to the square mite. Is 1390. Virginia had a papulation of 1,065,179; in 1830, 1,911,404; in 1840, 1,230.797. Now York, in 1830, 1,373,. 919; in I860, 1,918,00$, la 1S40, 3.438,931. In 1840, New York will prebably contain aaarly 6,000, 000, and Virginia say 1,300,000. That* facta, ona would suppose, wera sufficient to induce the people of Virginia to introduce aew branchoe of industry, and to establish tha modern internal improvement* for transportation, that the rich reaourcea of the State map be developed. The condition of the two Caroltnai are much the aaae aa Virginia. The population of North and South Carolina, in 1030, 1,310,173; in 1840, 1.347,817-increase 3} per cent in ten years, (pnnciptlly in North Carolina ) MCven in Ureat Britain, the increaie in the aaae time waa 11 percent. In Maaaachuaetta, although there were Sl| to the tquire mile in 1830, againat 17 in the Caroli na*, there waa an iacreaae ol 31 percent from 1930to 1840. Too aggregate product* of the two Carolina* in 1840, waa $59,593,731, with a population of 1.347,917. The product* of Massachusetts, with a population of lea* than 800,000 people, amounted at the *ame time to 4100, 000,000, and now the product* of labor and capital are more than $130,000,000. I have introduced theie itatemant* for the purpoae of exhibiting fairly the true condition of una of the old nd to awa States,and to awahon the public mind in thoie Statea to the importance of bringing out their productive labor, *r brancne by introducing new branches of business, in order that the industrial classes may be profitably employed, end to show that the three State* named have as great a stake in protecting the labor ot the country as any other in tha Union. They have now but little else then soil and physical power remaining. You posses* but a small amount of productive power, in the form of railroad* and labor-saving machines. You have a deep interest.In common with ail the States,in upholding the labor of tha country. You seem to ba satisfied that the time has come when something should be done to improve the condi tion of your people. The people of Virginia, with South and North Carolina (particularly the two former States) have pursued a policy that ha* brought 'hem, so fa- as population is concerned, to a stationary condition; and from present indications, I should not be surprised to sea Eastern Virginia and South Carolina with a less number of people in 18.50 than they contained in 1810. If you propose now to enter upon those pursuit* that are certain in their operations to give employment, end that of a profitable kind, to your people, and to create a irsrket at home for your agricultural products, what ob ject can there be in transferring our workshops to Great Britain 1 The South and West have every motive to give efficient protection to the labor of the whole Union: First, because those employed in the mechanical and manufacturing arts are the best customers for your agri cultural products; and secondly, because you desire to engage in those department* or labor yourselves. I say, Uien, look well to this project, now under consideration at Waskington, to change our whole revenue system. There is one principle upon which every government, aad every commercial community with which I am ac quainted, agree throughout the world; and that is, to es tablish specific duties, or a valuation of their own. Mr. Walker has reverted this decision, and recommends ad valorem duties on an alleged valuation abroad. I daam this featare in the bill a violation of sound principle, and such as must be condemned by men of all parties, whose experience and knowledge ura of value. It is no other in practice, than to drive from our foreign trade a large number of honest importing merchants, and to place their business in the hands of unscrupulous foreigners. Time may reveal the truth of this prediction. The President and his Secretary of the Treasui y have ?fated that the operations of tha present tariff law op pressed tha poor. 1 confess this assertion surprised me coming from high functionaries of the government, who hsve the means of obtaining correct information. I as sume tha responsibility ef stating, that a laboring man may be, and is clothed with American manufactures from the crown of his head to the sole of his foot, as cheaply as alaboring maa in Great Britain, or any other part of Europe, who wears ss comfortable garments; and that the revenue is raised principally from articles consumed by those classes of society who are in easy pecuniary circumstances. I beg to refer Mr. Walker to the reports from the customs, and ask the favor of him to present them to the President, and he will there find the only article on which the poor man is taxed to any extent, is sugar, and that cannot be deemed very oner ous when he obtains his tea and coffee free of duty, and with a favorable prospect, if the present duty be main tained, of very soon being supplied from our own soil with sugar, at a price much below that now paid. It is an error of the President and Secretary to put forth a statement that the tariff of 1343 opprosses the poor man, when the principal part of tha reVenue is derived rather ha luxuries, than the neci from tha luxuries, than the necessaries of life. When we hear irom high sources of transferring our workshops to Manchester, Birmingham and Leeds, I should Ue glad to know if it be proposed to transfer our intelligent working men with them, and whether a far mer in Ohio can be made to believe that these men will eat mora of his beef and pork in Old than in New Eng land. This is a strange doctrine, and sounds to ms quite anti-American, and are Just euch sentiments as were ut tered by the old tories previous to the Revolutionary w?r. There is one other point to which I shall allude in the report of the hon. Secretary. He says that the wages of labor are lower now than previous to the tariff of 1843. If hemeensthe wages of labor in the manufsc tnriDg portions of the country, I will state ? fact which, hi t, complet I think, completely illustrates the incorrectness of his assertion. In the State of Massachusetts, the institutions for sa vings are obliged by law to mako returns to the lagisla tuie.

[From the Cbemingo Telegraph.] The rain commenced felling on Friday afternoon, and continued to pour down throughout the night with great violence. On Saturday morning the hi 11a presented to the eye a perfect sheet ol wator, and the roar of furiona waters that mat the ear, gave evidence of a freshet of no ordinary occurrence Immense damage has been done in thia regiou of country. We hear that there is scarcely a bridge sta ding on the Otselic oreek, and that tba mill ol Chandler sustained some injury ; the bridge over the Canasawacta in thia village was awept off, together with that n mile above, near tne rasi dence of D.

The new bridge at Bainbridge, over the Sus quehanna. has shared the same late. This structure was completed only u lew weeks ago, and we understand it cost upward* of (MK)0. It ii also reported that Evan's mills, a few rods above the bridge, ware swept down the current. The new bridge, six miles north of Bing hamton, over the Chenango, is on ita "winding way."? We hear it will not be rebuilt. The Susquehanna bridge at Bingbamton has also been carried off. end one on Big Creek, near that place.

The shop was ?towed full of expansive patterns, very faw of wbioh were saved except in a damaged condition, and a large portion entirely lost. The blacksmith shop attached to the furnace is almost entirely undermined, the floor fell out, and the building only kept from falling into the wa ter by the use of stays.
