S. Minister to Mexico, on his de pa) ture from Washington; the Congressional proceedings for the week: together with mar ket reports, shipping news, Ac., Ac., as usual. The Decline in «hlpbuildin*. We reprint in another column a noteworthy passage from the recent report of Secretary McCulloch, touching the surprising falling oil in American shipping and ship building dur ing the last six years. Mr. McCulloch pre sents the fact,as he says, in illustration of the following propositions: “No single interest in the (United States, fostered although it may be by legislation, can long prosper at the ex jjense of other great interests. Nor can any important interests be crushed by unwise or unequal laws, without other interests being thereby prejudiced." To one who considers the intricate network of relations which binds together a civilized community in these days, no proof is needed to show that a part or class in such a community cannot suffer alone. It is not as a proof, but as an illustration of his propositions, the that Secretary instances the decUre in ship building and declares that if commerce is permitted to languish other great interests must also suffer. Plain as this principle is, it is too often for gotten. There i> a tendency, natural enough, since to err is human, but strictly to be guard ed against, to overlook ail but local interests, and by pushing these into undue prominence, to leave them with uo safe grouud of general prosperity to stand upon. Illinois Congress men are too apt to he ncglecttul of the inter ests of commerce, forgetting that the wheat crop needs a market just as much as the mar ket needs the wheat crop. Pennsylvanians are constantly tending to sacrifice every other interest to coal and iron; yet railways and steamers and millions of agricultural imple ments are brought into use to feed our for eign trade. The wool growers are petitioning Congress lor additional protection, and wool en mills are lying idle because the raw mate rial is already too high to pay a fair profit to the manufacturers. The only sale rule in this maze of clashing interests, is to remember that no department of industry can long prosper at the expense of others. It is not only true that our ship-yards are virtually transferred to the British Provinces, but onr trade is taking the same direction. Vessels leave this port lot- St. John to take in -stores, because our- greenbacks arc worth more goods there than here. into the causes of this state of things the Secretary makes no elaborate enquiry. His own opinion he states very succinctly. The causes which prevent shipbuilding and ham per all other occupations are in his view, a re dundant currency and high taxes. Whether the cur rency is really redundant or not, is a matter of opinion. Strict demonstration is impossible, and assertion on the one side or the other avails very little. With a specie basis, the currency would regulate itself. The superfluous paper, if any, would be presented for payment; the superfluous gold, if any, would flow off to foreign countries; prices would adjust themselves to the common stand ard of value; and the currency remaining in use would be the proportionate amount re quired tor the transaction of our part of the world's business. These principles are admit ted by all reasoners who meddle with the sub ject at all. Whether the currency is redun dant or not,it is desirable to resume specie pay ments as early as possible aud put ourselves once more en rapport with foreign nations. Vi hether the currency is redundant or not, prices in our markets are relatively higher than abroad. Mr. McCulloch thinks they would he diminished by a curtailment of the curren cy, and inasmuch as under a different policy they have held their own remarkably, his rec ommendation is certainly entitled to a caie tul consideration. He also believes they may be diminished by a judicious reduction of tax es and duties, and. to this proposition there can be no valid objection. Our revenue is ample ar.d will not suffer materially by changes which promote the general prosperi ty. To sacrifice our shipbuilding and with it onr commerce, is not the way to serve any branch of industry. A wise statesmanship will not overlook any measure which promis es to bring prices nearer to the point at which our products will seek a foreign market and make us again a creditor instead of a debtor nation. The Mliuaglf in Mexico, The rumor that the Church party in Mexi co has offered to raise $30,000,000 to support the Empire is not at all unlikely. The Church, which long ago fastened its greedy clutches upon every source of wealth in that unfortu nate country, which stirred up the revolt of 1821 because the', Spanish Cortes undei took to make her disgorge a portion of her booty, and which has since hung like a millstone about the neck of Free Mexico— that Robber Church has everything to lose if Juarez comes in. She may well offer Maxi milian her $15,000,000, and carry around her contribution boxes to the capitalists for $15, 000,000 more. The Liberal Congress, elected by the people who elected Juarez, voted to ‘ nationalize” $200,000,000 worth of Church property. Seven and a half per cent, i s not a very high rate to pay for insurance against such a loss. It is altogether likely that this proposition or something like it has been made. With or without Maximilian the Church will fight desperately. With or without him, the Church will be beaten, thank God. It is in Mexico a system of organized robbery, to be suppressed and punished. Miramon, who has returned after some years in France, devoted it is said to military studies, was the so-called President installed in 1859 by the Church party, without the formality of an election. He was beaten in battle in 1880 by Juarez, and left the country. After six years ot application to the art military, he returns to try hia fortune once more, aud is to command the department of the Guanajuato. If Maxi milian withdraws, Miramon will be put for ward as President by the Church party. Our government has uniformly and consist ently recognized Juarez os the President of the Republic of Mexico. Officially, we know no other government mere. uuarez was elect ed by the Mexican people and governs now by authority granted by the Mexican Congress.— A Mexican protectorate is not an inviting of fice. But because we do not choose to as sume that task, it by no means follows that we are bound to treat adventurers like Miramon and Santa Anna, on the same footing with the friendly government which alone we recog nize. We can furnish arms, ammunition and stores to our allies. We can and must refuse them to its enemies. So far as Mr. Campbell’s instructions contemplate such just and proper exhibitions of our preference, they are entitled to and will doubtless receive the ap probation of the whole country. Whatever advantage rightfully belongs to an established government, Juarez is entitled to and must have. —A London publisher announces a reprint us a gift-book, of Mr. Whittier’s “Snow' Bound,” to be richly illustrated by photo graphy. (t 'I'rmiU ktaHwan To lUc'Kluxoll or THE 1'itEss: I closed a former communication on this sub ject, by urging the business men of Portland, interested iu the Hour, grain and other western produce trade, to unite as oue man to obtain damages of the Grand Trunk for late and pres ent most unreasonable detention of their property, and outrageous disregard of their rights on this public highway. Without such united action nothing will probably he done; with it much may be accomplished both for the past and tuturc. Let a meeting be cadcd at once to con sider the situation, and let us asceitaiu wheth er after all our expenditure of time, labor and money to build our part of this road, we have any right iu it, or to it, which its Canadian managers arc bound to respect. If we have not, then lias the road forfeited its charter and the sooner its rails arc legally torn up the better. The lights of the citizens ot Portland and the whole State, as well as the rights of this cor poration, are bound up together in that char ter, and they should stand or fall together. I canno' find that the Grand Trunk lias any chartered right,—from mere whim or caprice, from fear or favor,—to take one man’s goods and reject another’s; or having taken goods for any given place, to leave them by the way for mouths, taking other goods daily by them and in advance of them. That this Company does this, let the forty thousand barrels ol Portland flour locked up in its sheds for the last three months, while Canadian flour has been moving forward treely, bear witness. But if this Company has no such chartered right to thus make fish of one and flesh of an other, then is it one of our reserved rights, founded on common sense, common justice and common law, not to have them do it; and if any new legislation is needed to compel them to respect this reserved right, let the in coming Legislature be appealed to to provide it. The whole State is interested in the sub ject. Scarcely a town or village that has not been more or less injured by this same disre gard of their rights. Their few hundred bar rels of flour or bushels of grain locked up at Sarnia, are as much disappointment and damage to them, as Portland’s thousands to her. All necessary legislation can be easily obtained, I doubt not. But another remedy, and perhaps a more sure and effectual one, is at hand The Grand Trunk is notoriously bankrupt—bankrupt to the very people whose rights it is trampling on. Its over-due bonds and obligations secured by mortgages on the road—the original Atlantic & St. Lawrence bonds and mortgages—are now held by our citizens, in gieat forbearance; they should be held in terrorem. Let the mortgage to secure the overdue Bonds, be put upon foreclosure, and let the Trustees of that mortgage take immediate pos session of the road to Island Pond and manage it for themselves, doing equal justice to all.— Let them meet all freight at that point, and there proclaim that not a barrel of flour nor a pound of merchandise shall pass into or over our part of the road out of the regular order and time of shipment (unavoidable accidents and detentions of course excepted); and that all freight on which a discriminating tariff has beA laid, in favor of the lower Provinces, Eng land, Boston, or any other place, and against Portland and the State of Maine, shall remain on the other side of the line till the Canadian managers of the Grand Trunk shall learn that others have rights as well as they—rights that ought to be, and must be respected. And I am, at this moment authorized by the Trustees to siy that whenever they can be assured of the united support of the people of Portland— those interested in the subject—they will forth with take possession of the road and protect our rights. They understand full well our wrongs, and their own duty in the premises; and let me add they are men who knowing their duty dare to perform it. Again, then, I urge union and action,—give the Trustees im mediately, the positive assurance, the pledge of our cordial co-operation, and the next new year will find them in the full possession and managemeut of the old Atlantic and St. Law rence Railroad with all its privileges and ap purtenances. 1 liaa intend,HI to suggest ouier remeuies mr our grievances, s ich as opening another and competing route to and from the West, by com pleting the Portland and Rochester Railroad (which ought to be speedily done,) or by con necting a line of steamers at New York with the Erie road—or by way of Buffalo and Al bany or Ogdensburg and some of the Vermont lines, either of which routes may be secured on favorable terms if dealers in Portland will unite and pledge them all their business. But the Grand Trunk is our natural, our chosen, our rightful channel of communication with the AV'est, and we must have it, and have it so managed as to be a Reliable dependence, and answer the great ends 'for which it was project ed and built, and I now have confidence to be lieve that in connection and co-operation with the Trustees we shall he able to effect such management. I rest the ease here for the pres ent. Should all efforts in this direction fail, and the supplies of Portland and this State still be held at the mercy and caprice of the foreign managers of a foreign road, running mostly ov er foreign territory,—then indeed will it be come a serious question whether Portland can retain her business aud her business mcu. A season’s trade has just been lost—driven away to Bostou and New A'ork by tlie miserable, treacherous aud wicked management of the Grand Truuk. Other seasons before have been nearly lost by the same cause. Merchants a naturally and necessarily follow their trade,— their business—as water seeks its level, aud unless something effectual is done now, it may soon be said in truth, as it has already been said in derisk n, “Portland is wilting" and the grass growing evqgi on Commercial Street. Diiuinutieu of American Tonnage. The following extract from Secretary Mc Culloch’s report sets forth very clearly the present state of things in a department of in dustry in which Maine is especially interested: The people of the United States are natural ly a commercial and maritime people, lend of adventure, bold, enterprising, persistent. Now, the disagreeable fact must be admitted, that, with unequalled facilities for obtaining the materials, and with acknowledged skill in ship building—with thousands of miles of sea-coast, indented with the finest harbors in the world— —with surplus products that require in their exportation a large and increasing tonnage— we can neither profitably build ships nor suc cessfully compete with English ships in the transportation of our own productions. Twen ty gears ago it was anticipated that ere this the United States would be the first maritime power in the world. Contrary to our antici pations, our foreign commerce has declined nearly fifty per cent, within the last six years. The tonnage of American vessels engaged in the foreigu carrying trade which entered Uni ted States ports was— In I860.6,921.286 tons. In 1865.2,913,661 “ In 1866.3,372,060 ■< The tonnage of such vessels which were cleared from the United States was— In 1866.6,166,924 tons. in 1865.3,(25,131 “ In 1866.b,38.),176 “ foe tonnage of foreign vessels which entered our ports was— In I860.2,353,911 tons. In 1865.3,216,967 “ In 1866. 4,410,421 The tonnage of foreign vessels which were cleared was— .“»»• V*!886.« j^-j^^Bssssss,S“i-ai merchant vessebby tShslSSwSZSSStof American vessels ought to have produced, and but for a redundant currency and high taxes would have produced activity in our ship-yards and a rapid increase of tonnage: but this has not been the case. The prices of labor and ma terials are so high that ship-building cannot be made profitable in the United States, ami many of our ship-yards are being practically transferred to the British Provinces. It is on ly a few years since American ships were sought after, ou account of their superiority and cheapness; and large numbers of vessels were Duift in Maine and other States on for eign account, or sold to loreigners, while, at the same time, our own mercantile marine was be ing rapidly increased. Now many of our ship yards are abandoned, and in others very little activity prevails. It is true there has recently been some increase in our foreign tonnage, hut a good part of this increase is apparent only, and is the result of the new rule of admeasure ment. It is an important truth that vessels can be built very much cheaper in the British Provinces than in Maine. Nay, further, that timber can be taken from Virginia to to th * Provinces, and from these Provinces to England, and there made into ships which can be sold at a profit; while the same kind of vessels can only be built in New England at a loss, by the most skilful and econ omical builders. But the evil does not stop here; if the only loss was that which the coun try sustains by the discontinuance of ship building, there would be less cause of complaint. It is a well-established general fact, that the people who build ships navigate them, and that a nation which ceases to build ships ceases; of consequence, to be a commercial and maritime nation. Unless, therefore, the causes which prevent the building of snips in the United States shall cease, the foreign carrying trade, even of our own productions, must be yielded to oilier nations. To this humiliation and loss the people of the United States ought not to be subjected. If other branches of industry are to prosper, if agriculture is to be profitable, aud manufactures are to be extended, the com merce of the country must be restored, sus tained, and increased. The United States will not be a first-class power among the nations, nor will her other industrial interests continue long to prosper as they ought, if her commerce shall be permitted to languish. * SPECIAL NOTICES. nr E W BOOKS 10K THE HOLIDAYS !
