TH NO. 5396. The New Cabinet and the Protective Pulley. iKruiii lb* B-uioe AUM, Vitrei 18 J The 8|i?-ci)Uiroii8 upr.u the course*, which will bs tfufrtt o by G# n-ral Taylor and hia cabinet, arc aa many > nd almost an varied a-i the number and the opit tone of nil 'he patties in the Union, great and mm all. The free trade paity?cum>>oeed ot the foreign itniMirting merchants ol New York, and a ftuiteu of the Southern cotton growers?atf-ct to ?ee, in 'he selection ot Mr Meredith a9 Secretary ot the Tieaeury, a strong lenong to their favorite theory; and iheir oi|>an, the Jmrnul of Cnmmrr e, is chuckling over what it d rim the disappointed expectations ot thoae who think that the country tit laige has some interest in other things than cheap calico and dear cotton. We ha'e not the least desire to disturb their complacency on the occasion, hut we apprehend that they will be sadly disappoint'd if they expect, as they evidently do, to sec ihe new Secr<:t.:ry lol owing in the footsteps of his''illustrious predecessor." A writer m the J.ur*<W draws comfort fiom the fast that General Te) lor gives the precedence 10 agriculture, when he speaks ol protection to all the great interests of the country; but doeB he suppose, or do hts party auppoae, that when we talk of protection as a whig prtuciple, we mean protection to oue interest to the injury of another 1 It may be a question whether any amount ot protection afforded to one branch ot industry is not, in (act, protection to the whole; but that is a point which we do not p opose to discuss at present. The protectiou that we contend for?that the whig party contend for, ua<, demand at the hands of government, as a right? is, protection lo our own labor, not as employ# d in agriculture alone, or commerce atone, or inainilacturrs alone, but ia all combined. Tae man ol money, the capitalist, can take care ot klinai.ll I'nr him uio nuiilms uaulr nor nob u n n other lav or th?n he cau derive from th? general pros partly ol the whole jieople; but we do seek and ask from the government such measures as will pionuce that general prosperity. And we aay tltal that ih a |ioor policy which drives all classes of jnt-o into one occupation. Agriculture is the great interest of the couu'ry, the base upon which all the others rret; and our idea of the true method to protect that niterest is, so to raise up other iut>*rexis that it shall find a better market for its raw productions, and shall not be overdone by producers. II foreign tonnage is to carry our produce foreign manufacturers are to supply us with all we consume otmuiuiuctured fabrics, then it is clear that we shall be reduced to two classes?one great class employed in cultivating the soil, and one very small classernoloyed in importing and vending foreign tabacs As we are situated relative to other nations, this is tree trade cairied to its ultimate result; and, we ask, is this protection to any bodv except the very small class employed in importing foreign rti-rchaudize 1 Hi derthis scheme, will not the products of agriculture b'come so abundant, and the prices so cheap, that the whole labor ot the country will be depressed to the lowest possible point at which men Can live 1 We advocate then the protection ot commerce, our fisheries and manufactures, not on the g-ound ol protrcingany one ol these interests tor itself, but because sucn protection en ires to the bent fit of the whole labor of the country, however it may be employed. And, therefore, we would shut out foreign tonnage from our great coasting trade: because, by so doing, we lurnith an immense amount of employ tor a great number ot hands wno ate thereoy turned into consumers, instead ?-,< producers, of all that our soil can yield. This putting out is protection to commerce; without it foreign competition in the shape oi cheap foreign labor, both in building and railing ehipv, would render our coasting navigation worthless in five years, and insi?ad ot being onr own carriers, and keeping the money paid lor carrt nig among ourselves, we should become dependent on loreiuaers lor this labor, and pay away millions unuualiy which woula go to enrich others, while it would make us poor mdtfd. On the same principle, and (or the same reasons, we would shut out foreign tiah from our markets. No man in this country works s<> hard, endures so much, encounters ro many perils, as the hardy anti adv< mutous fisherman; no man, in the best state ol the tithing business, gets lees pav for his labor; arid yet tor two years past that labor has been Mill fuither depressed by the almost free ad* mission oi loreigu fish, caught on the mores of the Br tibh ptovinccs, at an expense ot outfit, so small in comparison with ours, that it the same system is pursued, we muBt ultimately abandon the business, and turn our "nursery for seamen" .into a nur-ery tor tarmers. The same reasoning applies to manufactures. Politicians may split hairs about high tan lis, aud low iMiifl*, but we care not whether a tariff is called high or low, it it protec Ameiican labor. Whatever is sufficient fjpr that purpose gives all we a sit, far it produces that salutary divisiou of labor winch prevents one branch ol industry trom being crow ded to excess, while others are abandoned. It enables us to use our own raw productlouK, with a saving ot all the labor which ta requisite not only to produce them trom the earth, hut also to coiiveit them into the various torma which are necessary to prepare them for consumption and use It protects ihe rnasa ot the people? stumps a value upon their daily toil, which euables them to live us Ireeinen ought to live?prevents the unw hobs*me aggregation ot wealth in the hands ot the few, and the approach ot poverty to the homes ot the many; and finuilv, it makes us, as a nation, too# pendent ta lact as well as in name. With such a system ot p otrction as we have thus hastily and crudely lined out, every interest in the country will flourish, and none mote than that threaten of all our interests? egiicultuie. With such a system well established, the balance of trade would no longer run Bgstnet us, and we should cease to look lor the arrival of each steam packet with feverish anxi?ty tor the e fleet her tidings may have upon our business affairs and our money market. We could stand alone and walk alone. It would be a matter ffilir?lv MHPiinHHrv in nttr Pfinai^rtarinn u/hpfhor England would or would not buy our bread, or lake our Slocks mi pay onnt lor calico. Wedioild have a great .secure, growing home market lor all the productions ot our labor. t-uch ih our ideas ot projection, and we are well eiiislitd ii>Ht tren Taj lor and the ab:e mrii whom he has called to his council, will exert their iull i?nee le give lite and v t^iiy to this idea. We have no Par that ihry will udopt or recommend any plan which will close our workbhope,*<ii mutactore e, and mini e, loin our commerce and destroy rur fi heriee, and drive oiii" WnoS population tuto the two classes we h-ive before named.

He finally came to the usual conclusion at those who represent the government, (as they call b it,) to wit, that he would act as he pleueed in ih? n matter, and let the government be responsible for ? it. Accoioingiy, the vessel was,yesterday, brought *> to 1 he whart, and a party put ou board, who hav?

They seem disposed to delay doing so, until they can get their squadron to the wind waid, lest a United Stales vessel of war bhould come that w ay and inquire into their piratical conduct.
