I EVILY I'l* ESS. l’< >KTU AM). Monday M*>r«mg, Deo. tuber 10, 1066. Koi ixioii »f the Tul ill. it is a uotewortliy tact that (lie Itepubii cau party, as at present constituted, tolerates tin1 widest difference of opinion touching a question of policy on either side ol which not very long since two great parties rallied. Free traders and protectionists are enrolled alike in the Republican ranks. The leading advo cates ol Iwth theories continue to repeat, the well worn arguments, but the gieat mass ot Uie party listens with an eulirely unaffected indifference. The occasional attempts on one side or the oilier, to read the opiwsing section out of the party, are merely variations of the otherwise monotonous discussion. If one writer denies the litness of George William Curtis to represent the Republican State of New York in the United States Senate, be cause lie believes in free trade, another wiih equal force demonstrates the unfitness ol Hor ace Greeley, because he believes in a protec tive tariff, and both candidates colitiuue to be recognized as in good and lcgular standing. It becomes ail interesting mquu j. »miner any good cause can be aligned tor tiro gener al intli(Terence to a question ot such magni tude and importance. Is tliete merely a truce between tbe warring (actions ? Is there mere ly a tacit understanding, that this element of discord shall be kept out ot sight, until the weightier matter of reconstruction is settled? Is this question, like all other questions of mere policy, so insi . uilicant compared with the restoration of the national power and pres tige, that it has passed out of men's minds and is well nigh lorgotteu ? The last solution is probably nearer the truth than either of the others, but there is something more to oe con sidered. The policy ot the country in this respect has been shaped for us not in uecoid ance with any theory hut by the unalterable dictation of facts. Piactic:U and busy men, see ing our policy so settled,, have no relish left for theories which under other circumstances might be extremely interesting and useful. These facts are, 1. That the country needs and must have a revenue proportioned to Us debt. That to secure such a revenue, a heavy tax must be imposed niton our annual earnings, d. That not to defeat its own purp tse, the imposition of the tax must not he allowed (o diminish the gross urnouut of our annual earnings. -I. That the effect of taxation, it not counterbalanced by an in creased tariff, will be to drive large amounts of capital out of husi ness in width it is al ready invested, o disturb the industries and thereby check the product ion of the country, and that accordingly a heavy tariff is and is likely to he, tor sometime to come, aiindispen sable as a heavy lax. This is no time ior building up petiudustiiea on the one hand or trying tree trade experiments on the other.— With our present occupations we know' what we can expect from year’s end to year's end, and the problem foi practical statesmen, is to make the weight of taxation, direct and indi rect, bear as eqnally as possible upon all our varied pursuits. So bearing, we can carry it, with tolerable ease and steadiness. After we have paid our debts it will he time to consid er theories again; just now they are out of se a’on. The duties collected under the present tar iff amounted to more than $170,000,000 din ing the last fiscal year. It provides thereloie an abundant revenue. These duties however are collected under eight different acls of Con gress, passed at different times,to meet the in creasing exigencies of internal taxation. The hi II passed by the House of Representatives at the last session would have been a ninth.— The confusion arising from this int ricate mass of legislation is extreme. Importers find it difficult to ascertain with any certainly what duties they will i<e compelled to pay; the da tes assessed iu one pint differ from those at another. In many cases also, it happens, through the accidental duplication of taxes, that tbe duty on raw material and the tax on the finished article together exceed the ditty on the finished article imported Irom abroad. The removal of such inequalities and the sub stitution of a single act for the eight which now encumber the statute hook, constitute tit substance of the revision which the tariff now needs. Jf the burden of indirect as well as direct taxation can he safely lightened, as (secretary McCulloch believes, it will probably he thought best to reduce the duties first on raw materials, which are produced mainly by semi-barbarous countries ami for which we can advantageously exchange our manufac tured products. Tiif- Fmwloiu of fin PriMH. Suppose that by writing and publishing, a man should, in the language of ,Judge Story, ‘ disturb the public peace, or attempt to sub vert the government.”—Press. Yes—suppose that case. What then?— Wliat should be the punishment? Give us your own opinion, neighbor. We have always entertained very decided views on the subject, and wc should like to know what the Press thinks—should like to kuow the true light in which those should be regarded who burned the Constitution at a public pow-wow on the 4th of July, wlio declared that constitution a covenant with death and an agreement with hell, who declared that they were bound to disobey that constitution and wlio advocated a dissolution of the Union in preference to Union under the constitution. There is no doubt as to the light in which tliose who took up arms against their government should be regarded, and it is desirable that it should be equally well settled bow the other classes re ferred to should be regarded. Perhaps the Pres.'t will give us a little light on the subject. We shall see.—Argws. On a certain occasion, Mr. it. W. Sherman, in the course of an argument before the late Judge F-, of Connecticut, made a point which the Court did not at first comprehend.— “Mr. Sherman,” said the judge. who was not remarkable for quickness of apprehension, “Mr. Shcrmau, I would thank you to state the point so as I can understand you.” Bowing politely, Mr. Sherman replied in lus blandest manner, “Your Honor is probably not aware of the task you are imposing upon me.” The opinion of the Press on this subject of treasonable writing and publishing is no se cret. We are willing to try to “state the point so as the Argus can understand it,” but dis tinctly refuse to lie held responsible for the re sult. Treason against the United States con sists only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. Treasonable publications, according ly, are such as in time of war adhere to the cause of a public enemy, and afford aid and comfort to forces arrayed against the United .States. There can be no treason without war. Free discussion of the principles of our gov ernment and of the public acts of our public men is and should be encouraged so long as the nation is at peace. It is and should be ev ery man’s priv ilege to bold and to utter Ids opinion*, no matter howslrange, novel, or un popular and th * law should and does protect him in the exercise of that right. A state of war is another matter. A battle field is no place for conundrums or verbal ar guments. Silence and unquestioning obedi ence are required of the soldier, and some thing of military rigor touches every citizen.— We would not have, even under such circum stances, any censorship of the press. Its es sential freedom should remain unimpaired; but if it lapses into treason, if it aids the pub lic enemy by furnishing information, or com forts him by encouraging him to believe that he has to do with a divided people, then we believe, as we have repeatedly said, that a press bo offending should be amenable to the laws for its offence. The press will still be free, but it should l> _ held responsible for the use of its freedom. Daring the receut war there were two meth ods of dealing with newspapers which over stepped the bounds of a legitimate opposition to the administration. Either they were ar bitrarily suppressed by the military authori ties, or they were summarily dealt with by the people whose sacrifices and losses were in creased by their malign influence. We like neither metho.l, but would pivl'er to sec the civil authorities enabled by duo legislation, it legislation is ..I'd, t" take .such action as will insure the public safety. It lb- Argus ; does not agree with us, it can take theoretical ground in favor of mob law, or military law, or no law at all. The practical alternative, ill j nmny cases, is lietween the Legislature and | <1 udge Lynch. Which does the Argus prefer? .VlaiiM* iniih| Aihcriisc. Mr. Editor:—Some years ago there came in to my bauds a pamphlet, issued at the expense of the State ol Minnesota and endorsed by its chief officials, setting forth the claims ot that region as a Held for immigration, it was not well executed in point of style or digestion of facts, yet. its influence upon my mind was such, that if there had been any agricultural capacity in me, coupled with a desire for change of place, very likely I should have struck out for Min nesota. The document w as widely circulated as indicated in the fact that a copy reached one so little known as myself. It cannot ot course lie proved, hut it is cer tainly not improbable, that quite an important part of the growth of that remote northern re gion, is due to the influence of this State ach er tisement—a growth during the decade 1850-00 of not far from 50.000,000 dollars in the valua tion ot the State, or one-fourth of our total (Maine) valuation; and that consequently the expense and trouble incident to the publica tion and diffusion of the document, have been repaid a thousand fold. Not the same but the equivalent thing has been done for Illinois by the advertisements of her great Central Railway, that for so many years have occupied a prominent place in al most every paper and publication in the coun try, and to soute extent in Europe, setting forth the advantages offered the settler in that fertile region and especially on the line of the Road. Accordingly (1 do not venture to say conse quently) the valuation of the State, during the deeennium above referred to, went up from 150 to 870 million dollars, and its population from 850,000 to 1,700,000. Examples to the toregoing effect might lie cit ed to considerable extent. We tried advertising a i.-w years ago in ref erence to our Aroostook lands. The masterly reports of the Secretary of our State Board of Agriculture and the press of the whole State engaged together to celebrate the capabilities of thisnew agi icullural El Dorado. The effect was quite perceptible. Immigration set decid edly into the region, and the Aroostook was the only purely agricultural part of our do main, that made any noticeable increase in its populution during the last census decade. The results, however, as a whole, fell far short of our hopes. The impression seems to he by no means confined to a lew, hut to bo very wide-spread, that the inducements to agricultural settlers in Maine, are quite limit ed as compared with those offering in other accessible and extensive districts; an impres sion persistent to a miracle, unless it be found ed in fact and corroborated by experience. The impression, moreover, seems to prevail in very high quarters, since that accomplished statis tician, the Superintendent of the late census, declares the New England States, Maine in cluded of course, to he already peopled be yond their capacity tor support by their own tillage, at least in the present state of agricul tural science, and in fact, to have passed the point of sell-support lung since. The impres sion, moreover, is justified in quite a disagree able manner by the indications of the last cen sus, oy which it appears that our increase of pop ulation in the last decade was only 7 perceut., nearly all of which is referable to manufac turing and kindred industries and not to ag riculture; justified, further, in the well-known fact that yv-e import a very important part of even the staples of our food, for which our ex ports of agricultural produce iu other forms, are by no menus an equivalent, so that the conclusion seems hardly- avoidable that were we reduced to the tillage of our laud alone for employment, our progress, if not decidedly retrograde, would he for a long time and until the more lavored agricultural regions should have been occupied, tardy if not absolutely nil. In other words, our population appears to he stationary so far as respects any increment from agriculture, readily attainable for the present, and our advertising enterprise, there fore, nearly nugatory because not iu the right line. But, Sir,our water power remains. This, if anything, is to be to us what her coal mines are to Pennsylvania, her prairies to Illinois, her sea-islands and lice su mps to South Carolina. This is the thing to advertise. But beforeweat tempt to herald our capab ilities to the world, we must know better what and where they are. What we need, then, is a thorough llydro yvaphic Survey of the interior waters of the State: a survey undertaken at the State’3 ex pense, conducted by the most skilful attainable engineers, that shall ascertain the volume, ve locity, slope, Constancy, lacustrine connections, rapids, falls, channel and riparian conditions where dams would have to he built, the abun ance and accessibility- of building material, and all other features of our Hu via tile waters and their territory, of importance in a manufactur ing point of view. The survey should embrace not only the great rivers hut also their princi pal affluents, and in particular all those tribu taries by which they are connected with lakes and pouds; which latter, a so, in all their di mensions, should he comprehended iu the field of the investigation. Tin* materials thus acquired having beeu care fully digested, should be published by the State; published just as they are, with none of the vagueness or extravagance ol ■ tutement, which deform and destroy the efficiency of so many similar publications. Information of such pre cise character, given to the world under such auspices, qnd in such a form, could not fail to he in the highest degree influential, and if duly circulated, as it should be determined to be by a suitable commission, could hardly fail to at tract capital into the State, for tile appropria tion and utilization of our grand staple, water power. To some extent and in particular localities the work above referred to has been done, and if well done would not ner d to be done over. But the results of such desultory efforts are not before the public in combined, authentic form, and exert but little influence; all the less because complicated with individual and some times speculative interests. There may be difficulties in the way of, or objections to such an undertaking, which your correspondent, with his limited knowledge of business and of forms do£ • not see. But as at present advised, he can see no such difficulties, and no reasonable ground for apprehending any other than remunerative results from the enterprise. One word inoie. The appropriation of Con gress, which in our State has been devoted to the establishment of an Agricultural College, was given for the furtherance of mechanical art as well as agricultural. Whether nnvthing mor* than the agricultural can he attended to, with the means at command, I do not know. But it would seem to promise well to establish a short course of study on Practical Mechanics, in which, in particular, attention shall he giv en to all the methods now in use and approved, fur the use and economical expenditure of wa ter power. The mechanics studied in colleges are bodies of abstract principles, general theo ries, couched in algebra, calculus, etc., just as they should hi: fur the purpose there in view. But the practical knowledge to which I have reference, and which scores and perhaps hun dred-of mechanics in our State have need of, whether they remaiu with us or go abroad, could In* communicated in the mechanical de dur Uncut of the Agricultural College, appar ently with propriety, economy and facility. Going forth into the State with adequate knowledge and skill, the graduate mechanics would in multitudes of communities stimulate to the use of available water power, which now lies idle from ignorance how to use it. Several other collateral matters ought to bo presented in this connectionbut perhaps not at this time or by Yours truly, W. Wells. Sand Plains.—Dr. True writes in the Maine Farmer concerning the plasn lauds in Oxford: We recently spoke of the immense sandy fdain in this town. We leajn that a gentle man in Boston has recently purchased 300 acres of this land and is negotiating for 500 more. This he intends to devote to cultivation, md we expect to see the time when this now trarren waste will be under a good state of cul tivation. We have learnod one. lesson about .griculture in Maine, and it is this; that there ire few spots in Maine south of the mountain j anges which are not capable of being brought j o the highest state of cultivation and produc tion. li a person had told us twenty-five | pears ago that a garden could have been made j >u what is now Auburn village, we should ; Uavc laughed at the idea. Now, any number I ,f them may be seen. So it is over the State. j SPIXUL NOTICES. NEW BOOKS FOR THE HOLIDAYS ! WllOI.l»ALIi AND RETAIL !
