Concerning Spike*. Mr. J. N. Ayres writes from Stamford, Con necticut, to the editor of the New York Trib une, to say that he has observed the sections in the Senate tariff bill allowing a drawback of duties on all imported articles used in the manufacture of tanning tools and in the con struction of sailing vessels, and that in his opinion “some branches of our industry may suffer seriously by this favorite legislation for the agricultural and shipping interests.” He proceeds as follows: Now take, for instance, a little rolling mill in this vicinity, manufacturing some 1,500 tong of spike rods last year; these were made into spikes, mostly for shipbuilding, and this draw back on iron can be applied to the spikes used as above mentioned, and those using them will import some direct from England, where the labor is much less than bere, and thus save du ty ofl l-!ic. or 1 3-4c. per lb. as the case may be, on the rods, aud the 1,500 toug before mention ed were but a small portion of what were used in your city and elsewhere last year. This 1,500 tons paid an internal revenue, when made into spikes of about #7,500, be sides giving em ployment to some eighty men and supporting 6J tamilies. The above do ;s not Include reve nue paid on clothing, food, &c„ consumed by these operatives, which might increase the sum to $10,000. The consumers of spikes, &c., will not get them for any less price than if supplied by the home manufacturers, for you are aware of the fact that when the English had control of our markets iu supplying nails, screws, spikes, agricultural tools, &c., that they made prices to suit themselves, and that lower prices were only reached by encouraging home pro duction. Further, the shipping and agricul tural interests are not in their infancy to re quire any fostering care that other interests do not need, at this time, when all branches of in dustry are partially paralyzed waiting for a smaller currency basis a little nearer the coin value to work upon. If we favor the above uamed interests, other branches of industry will teel their needs, and press their wants to the same end, and I fear that when all branch es are served with apparent, uot real, prosperi ty, that there will uot be much left but free trade, without revenue to pay interest or prin cipal on our national debt. It will cost to import spike-rods to day in currency, including duty on same at 33 1-3 per cent. prem. #107 50 If made to spikes, dednet duty on same 4180 Total £()■_> yo Add cost ot making spikes hero by hand 30 qo Total $92 70 It will cost, to make spike-rods at pres ent cost of iron, coal, labor and with Government Tax at mill $80 00 Add for making spikes 30 00 Total $Uo 00 Thus giving the English an advantage over us of some $17 per tun on spikes used in tlio construction of vessels, if the whole duty be allowed as a drawback, beside their profit in makiDg rods and spikes. II we adopt Mr. Ayres’s conclusions, the al ternative is presented of sacrificing the spike manufacturers or the shipbuilders. There is no room for doubt that the shipbuilding inter est, though not “in its infancy,” is in great danger of being strangled by the operation of injurious laws. If now Congress should de cide, as Mr. Ayres proposes, that spikes are of more account than ships, it would next become an important question where a market is to found for the spikes. They are designed, it appears, “mostly for shipbuilding.” There is now just one vessel on the stocks in New York. If Mr. Ayres could legislate for the country, he would have none next year, and his “little rolling mill” would be compelled to go into other business. There would be a market to he sure in the shipyards of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, but our manufacturers would be less able to coiupete with the English arti cle on equal terms there than at home, by ex actly the additional cost o( transportation. In any event therefore, tilt manufacture of spike rods must esase. It cannot be saved, even if Congress were willing to sacrifice our ship ping. Mr. Ayres may as well submit to the inevitable with a good grace, unless he can get his iron and coal at prices which will en able to turn out the rods at the miil| as cheap ly as cheaply as they can be laid down there from England. As to the assertion that “consumers of spikes, &c., will not get them tor any less price,” we beg Mr. Ayres to refer to his own figures which show a difference of $17 a ton I He probably means that a heavy deman i from this country would raise the price in the Eng lish market, which is not unlikely; but he must see that whenever the English manufac turers ask $80 a ton for spike rods laid down in this country, they will no longer have any “advantage” over American ironworkers.— He can take either position he likes; hut he cannot consistently claim that the allowance of a drawback will give the English an advan tage, while at the same time the consumer will not get his gosds at a less price. If the American manufacturers can supply the market, they will certainly continue to do so unless the English article is cheaper. The roiling mill gives employment, we are told, to eighty men, more or less. But If spike rods were the only product of the mill, and these eighty workmen were to be thrown out of employment by legislation which will impait a new activity to our shipyards, we do not see how the country would lose by the change. If cither the Ironworkers or the shipwrights must be idle, what prerogative can the iron woikers claim ? Is their product of superlative importance ? Of what use are these spikes,except to build ships? Mr. Ayres tells us they arc “designed mostly tor ship building.” Suppose we put a stop to ship building, how much better off will the iron workers be ? In point of fact they will go to work on railroad iron, on nail rods, Ac. What difference will It make to them, whether, ships are built with English iron in New England or New Brunswick ? That, on Mr. Ayres’s showing, is the only choice which Is left to us. The country will lose something in revenue, but the loss will be more apparent than real. The attempt to raise an excessive revenue overreaches itself by restricting production and destroying the sources of revenue. The conviction is very general that the excessive taxation under which the industries of the country now labor, is killing the poultry which would, with better management, afford a store of golden eggs. It is the deliberate purpose of the government to reduce its reve nues as far as will be consistent with the safe ty of the public debt, in order to stimulate production and develope Its sources of reve nue. It is not good economy, as even Mr. Ayres ought to see, to destroy our shipbuild ing interest in order to save the revenue to be derived from the manufacture of spikes. I,oak to your (Stable*. In this piping cold weather, a good husband man will not only have bis thoughts about him as to the comfort of the human beings dependent upon him in the house, but he will also be merciful to the dumb and needy crea tures in his stable. This should be so tight as to exclude all noticeable currents of cold air. His horse should be covered with a good blanket adjusted and confined to the body so as not to fall off, and we are not sure that the same protection for his milch cows would not be equally merciful and beneficial. It Is well known that animals which are well sheltered and kept warm, will not eat so much as those which are suffered to stand in the cold; ana the saving of food in the course of a single winter will more than pay for these simple means of keeping them warm. .Some persons neglect to clean out their stables daily. In cold weather large masses collect, which are not only offensive and unhealthy—for animals need sweet air—but they render it difficult tor the animals to lie down upon the frozen ma nure withou*pain. In cold weather, if horses and cattle stand in their stables, they shonid have their droppings removed twice a day— night and morning. This will afford them a smooth surface to repose upon, besides pre venting a large accumulation by freezing. No stable, however, should be allowed to freeze manure hard upon the coldest winter nights. This may he prevented by having the apart ment assigned to the stalls under the stable— an apartment sufficiently dug out on one side for this purpos,e with a southern aspect, or by having It on the main floor directly above a warm barn cellar. In this case the floor will be kept warm by the warm air beneath, and' the droppings will not freeze to the floor If horses stand upon the bare earth, as they can In the former case, some of the diseases in the feet will be obviated. Horses and cattle should he well littered every night, so that they may epjoy a soil bed to lie upon. They should be carded and kept clean, that there may be a healthy action upon the skin. This will prerent certain diseases which the want of such action, or tilthy habits, are apt to generate. They should be tumish ed with salt frequently, and every day or two be allowed a mess ot potatoes, carrots, mangold wurtzels or ruta bagas. These will keep the bowels loose and in healthy order, and impart a lustre to the hair, which indicates thrift. Or dinarily a horse for family use, unless wonted tery hard, will keep in good plight, with a proper allowance of well cused hay and a peck of potatoes or other esculent roots daily. The stimulant ol grain, largely given, is not favor able to long life. Suiler not your stock to be fed to satiety, lest they waste their food; but neither should you stint them; give them as much as they will eat without wasting; this Is the best economy, besides being an act of humanity. Treat your dumb animals kindly, and they will he much more docile and manageable therefor. Even the brute is susceptible oi the power of kindness. He who would neglect or abuse a faithful auirnal that cannot speak to tell Its wants, or to coiuplaiu, deserves uot to be the owner ol one. Horses particularly are sagacious beings. They have great memories, and soon become so attached to a kind mas ter that they would never Intentionally harm him. We have had many certain proofs of this. Beating and whipping are a poor way to trach an animal. Such cruelty may cause them to dread your presence, but will never make them attached to you or care for your accom modation or safety. Oxen, cows and horses soon become attached to the hand that feeds 1 them; and if their master or mistress Is kind, they may always be managed by them more suiely and safely than a stranger or rude own er can handle them. It occurs to us in conclusion to say a word ai to the best mode of confining a blanket to a horse's body, so that it may not be misplac ed. The common method of a surcingle will hardly answer this purpose, and a crupper is unhaudy on such an animal. Take a piece of saddler’s webbing long enough to go round the body, and sew this to .he blanket just be hind the tore legs; let a leather strap on one end come round to meet a buckle on the oth er. This will make it convenient for buckling without stooping under the horse's belly. Take another piece oi webbing and attach it to the first at the point where it crosses the back bone. Let this be confined to the blanket iu the direction of the breast, having a strap and bnckle on the end of it as just hinted. A like piece of webbing should begin at the same place and pass down the other side to the breast with a strap fitted to the buckle. As those meet on the breast let them be buckled. At the other end of the blanket attach a large string, say a piece of clothes line, to the cloth, by confining the ends a third of the distance from the bottom of the blanket on the oppo site sides. The string should be about two feet long. This, forming a sort of loop, will tall below the haul cbes, somewhat like a crup per, and the hair will keep it ifom allowing the blanket to forsake its original position over the animal. Thus it is confined at eveiy part of the body and will not become displac ed. It is but a moment’s work to put it ou or take it off. As you throw it upon the horse, the straps and buckles present themselves to each other, and all you have to do Is to buckle them loosely and the work is dona; your blanket is safe, and the animal stands or lies warm without disturbing it. Xsaxi. Mazzini’* MnaUnia. Joseph Mazzini, the Italian Moses, whose restless spirit will not permit him to enter in to the Promised Land,<he free and united It aly of his dreams, who remains by choiee in exile in order to enjoy the largest liberty ol criticising the government of King Victor Em manuel, takes that liberty in the last number of the Atlantic Mouthly, under the title ol “The Republican Alliance. ’ If the throne ct theKiugcould.be overthrown by magazine articles, this paper bombshell might to mere harm than is usually accomplished by lire crackers. As the case actually stands, it will probably have no greater etTect than the new bulla from the Pope, which is daily expected. It is a singular circumstance that at the very time when Pio Mono is filling the earth with the noise of his lamentations, In view of the Liberal tendeucies of the King of Italy, Maz zini hits his voice in woe because of the Con servatism which sits embodied upon the throue, and which in his view has irremedi ably disgraced Italy. Here is his arraignment ofthe Government which, whatever its short comings, has achieved the liberation of Italy— a substantial fact which Mazzlni's ardent but too explosive patriotism could never quite compass, as it Is well to remember: In a case like ours, a national republican government would Lave accepted the vast and holy mission set bclore them, blesslii" and adoring the God of Italy. A national govern ment would have felt that Italy only exists in virtue o. the right of revolution; that she had naught to do with diplomacies, uaught to do with treaties and alliances, save with those peoples called, like herself, to the conquest ot their own freedom; that her banner is the ban ner of a prineiplt—the principle of national ity—and they would have boldly raised that banner in the face or friends and ioes. A national government would have under stood that, hi order to preserve the country from rain ol repeated wais, and to vanquish Austria, not once, but forever, it was necessary to dismember her, and that this necessity for the dismembermeut of the Austrian em pire pointed out the Danube, Vienna, and .Southern Slavonia as the objective points oi the war. A national government would have in stantly couvoked au Italian parliaments had none such been aireuly assembled—and bade them watch over the internal security or the country, and keep open every path through which aid might reach the holy war, saying to them, AVatch over us, and see that ucither from weakness nor incapacity we lad in our sacred mission. A national government would have issued a proclamation to the Italian people, saying, Hold yourselves in threatening readiness as our restrve force, so long as we do our duty and go forward; and be also ready to punish us should we oiler to draw back while one inch of Italian ground remains to he conquered. A national government would have address ed another pi-oclamalion to the peoples now subject to Austria, saying to them, Arise 1 the Italian army is your army; yours the ports along the eastern coast of the Adriatic— oeyond Ist-ia, which we shall set free—across which sea we will form the alliance of free men with you. A national government wonld have opened unlimited registers of volunteers ; would have organized the Hungarian legions, and the thousands of Poles—sons of the last insurrec tion—now wandering over Europe; it would have placed them with their national flags in the vanguard of our army; then, leaving two intrenched camps behind to guard Lombardy and the extreme Po, would have sent two hundred thousand regulars to push on by wav of Laybach and Udine to Vienna, would have given the command ot our fleet to Garibaldi, and, when he had destroyed the enemy’s fleet, would have poured tilty thousaud volunteers beyond the Adratic Into Croatia and Hunga ry Had this plan appeared too daring—which, however, it was not—a national govertmont would have arranged to have an insurrection ary outbreak precede the war along the 7one of the Alps, and first occupying the Trentmo to its furthest frontiers by the retruiar troops, would have brought the main body of the ar my into the field between the QuadrUateriai and \ enice; in either case contriving a sim ultaneous movement by the volunteers in Southern Slavonia. The monarchy, however—as if desirous of proving to Europe that Insurgent Italy would have uo other allies than the agents of despo tism—chose tor its sole ally liismarck. who, being decided to make war upon Austria lor his own purposes, would have afforded Italy all the aid she requited from the mere iorcc of things, and without any ctlort on her part. The monarchy—as if dreading above all : things that the people should acquire the con sciousness of their own strength—elevated distrust into a system; dismissed the parlia ment ; sanctioned exceptional laws against the press, and against all public meetings or asso ciations. It first refused ail aid from the vol unteers, and then, when compelled bv the public excitement to accept them, limited their number to twenty thousand; then urged again by the threatening attitude of the peo ple, agreed to accept double that number, but j r,ehlsed to allow either riflemen or guides (in dispensable elements of every army) among i them: then-once more compelled to yield— 1 stipulated that they should provide their own \ horses and rifles. The monarchy purposely introduced an un , worthy element amo_g the volunteers; gave i them unpopular and incapable superior ofli i cers; armed them with old muskets, carrying only one-tourth as lar as the rifles of the eue^ - iess'amt i or,'fr 10 make them appear usc amid^hn *C.apab *’ flrst 3ent thera t0 1,0 battic i abrunn^r^ lif*fW3Sible mountains, and then when6he*asked* Garibaldi’s request l of the fleet; re ed all insurrection in Venice*!^ j tino before the war; abstained imf*# Tten ! lug Trieste, though’it w^talTe nZSi' ment well knew tor more thaJ* 1 without a single soldier, in the sotekSSi d“yS< 1 the National Guard, thm.fo.rth,^pb " °‘ ; were Italians; declined the movement oTfcred I by the Southern Slavonians: held Wk the fleet in absolute inaction, and then as if in mockery of the outcry raised by the country ; seut it to sea unprovided with the most necos sary stores ol war, and under the command of a man aiready notorious lor his utter Incuna city, to the meaningless enterprise upon Lis a which ended in defeat. The monarchy, rejecting the advice of Prus sia and of the best military men of Italy in order to follow suggestions from Paris, scut a I»rUon ol the army, under the command of the author of all the disasteis of 184g, upou au impossible enterprise against the Quadrila-” teral, which combined with the fabulous dis order ot all the secondary operations, and the total want of ensemble In marches ami in the throw °f A,t.er thi3’ whether from coward ice oi some unknown cause, exaggerating the importance of the defeai, the m^bTin^ plicahly rested on Its aims, until, when Already u treaty for peace, it dispatched ^Cialdini to invade where there were no cuemics and re called Medici—the only onoot the regtilar "en crals who had attempted any serious opera tion—lum the Trentiuo, when he was within a few miles ot the capital. The iniquitous flight trom Milan in 184.8 Novara, Custozza, and Lissar-such havchetii the results ot the ODly wars out monarchy bus undertaken without foreign aid. Foreign rul ers—we say it with a grief that passes woids —though at times guilty of crime, have at least sbtuuk trom dishonor. It was natural that the peace that followed should be upou a par with the war, but the monarchy contrived even to surpass the uoiul of disgrace already reached. The monarchy submitted to hear Austria declare: I do not give hack tills Italian terri tory to those who are unable and unworthy* to conquer it for themselves. I fling the now useless incumbrance at the feet of the despot who has already wrung an Italian province trom your cowardice, and who still deprives you of your own metropolis. Take it as au aims from him, if he chooses to bestow it up on you. 1 llic monarchy has submitted to hear the usurper of Itome and Nice declare: J a for eigner, bestow upon you as aims this Italian province which you arc incapable ot winning •or yourselves by force of arms. You shall henceforth do homage as vassals, not to Aus tria, but to me. And the monarchy has swallowed the dou ol<? Insult. Had it uota low ycun be loro upon grouud yet teeming with Italian blood, swal lowed the insult of a peace concluded by an ally, who, though but a lew steps distant irom the King, yet deigued no word to him—1 will not say to ask counsel, but not even to Inform him 01 tlie abrupt decision? And this peace—though this U of small mo ment compared to dishonor— this peace is ru inous to Italy. Intrenched withiu the Alps • master ol istria, the key ol our eastern fron tier; master ot the pour betrayed Trcntino, the key ot Venetian Lombardy; master of all the passes through which he has been wont to descend into Italy—the enemy can lie in wait to seize the lavorite moment, which the em barrassed position of Italy will surely Oder to tall upon us. A peace such as the present carries with it the necessity of another war—u war which (it is needless to deceive ourselves) will find Austria stronger than before. Iteject ed by Germany, she will be compelled by the foiee of things, and by the numerical superior ity of the Slavonian element, to trausloim her self into a Slavonian power; and the Southern Slavonians, uespairing henceforth of Italian aid, and certain of preponderance in the Lin pire, wiii at length rally round our enemy aud become enemies in their turn. Meanwhile, the certainty of having sooner or later to engage in a new war wdi compel Italy to maintain her army undiiuinislwd, place her in the necessity of making ficsh preparations, and render any important reduc tion m her expenditure impossible. It will force upon her a progressive iucrease or'liabil ities. threatening the Slate with bankruptcy; reduce her to a constaut condition ol com mercial uncertainty, alarm, and consequent inactivity ol capital; compel her to new loans, new taxes, and the iudelinite interruption of every great industrial, agricultural or commer cial enterprise. Ruin and disgrace. A monarchy which, with a people Use ours, with ball a million of men under arms, with an army of approved courage, with soldiers and suitors such as those who sank in the r’aiestro, crying, ‘‘Viva fltr aiial” coldly brings this vassalage, poverty anil dishonor upon the country, may yet exist lor a briel period upon the eoiTuptioD and cow ardice oi others; but, before God and man, its doom is sealed. -—— — M _ VABIKTIEM. —The Stewart divorce trial—the caso in whicli a wife leit her husband because he did not write his own sermons—has commenced in Chicago. —A Mormon preacher in England has been sentenced to one year's imprisonment for big amy.
