The principal iutcrest which Maine has in the passage of the Tariff bill now before the House of Representatives, beyond the desire to have some settled policy, turns upon the twenty-second section, allotting to ship builders a drawback of all duties upon the prinepial materials used in the construction of sailing vessels. We publish in another column the debate in the Senate upon the motion to strike out this sectiou. The debate will lumish a history of this fea ture of the bill Ironi its first appearance in the Finance Committee to its adoption by the Senate iu its present tbrni, and will give a suf ficient notion of the only arguments which are likely to be urged against it. It is to be hoped that the House will amend the projio sitiou so as to include steamers, according to Mr. Fessenden’s intention, and will then pro ceed to carry out the ftdl intent of Mr. Lynch's resolution by remitting all taxes as well as duties upon materials employed for this pur pose. Nothing less will afford auy relief worth mentioning to this important interest. In this city, Mr. Dyer's yard is deserted. Mr. Law rence had one large ship on the stocks last year, but sees no prospect to warrant him in laying another keel. Mr. Winslow !s about to stop the business. In Yarmouth, Mr. S. C. Blanchard is preparing to abandon the business. In Bath not a new keel has been laid for a year. In Kennehunk.Capt. Thomp son is working against hope; had three ships on the slocks last year and three flames which he intended to put up this spriug, proceeding leisurely and fully aware that there is no sale lor first-class vessels, at present prices. Mr. Titeomb is building coasters, lor which there is a moderate demand. From Boston, Chel sea, McdlOrd,New York, Williamsburg, comes the same monotonous report. And mean while our foreign trade is actually increasing. And last year out of 438 millions gold value of imports 327 millions were brought over, and out of 505 millions currency value of exports 35g millions were carried away, La foreign bottoms. Nothing can bo plainer than the teaching of these facts. Unless something is done, the art of shipbuilding will be lost to us, and with that goes our carrying trade, unless that por tion of the navigation act of 1793 which virtu ally forbids American merchants from running foreign-built ships should be repealed, which is unlikely. Close upon the decay of our nav igation follows the decline of our naval power, for the merchant marine is the reservoir which feeds the navy. Sailors cannot be improvised like soldiers. But why dwell upon these ar guments, which have been urged by our own shipbuilders in tbeir recent convention, which have been presented to Congress directly by tbe Legislatures ot Maine and New York and indirectly by tbe Legislature of Michigan in its protest agaiust further registry of British vessels in the United Stales! It is thought in some quarters that the pro posed relief will not be adequate. That point deserves to lie considered. The cost of a Maine-built ship of 1327 tons, in currency, as taken Irom tbe builder’s bocks, is for Wood $20,950 Iron 12,4C0 Sheathing 2,000 Cordage and duck 11,000 Other materials 5,000 Materials $57,350 Labor 25,100 Business charges 8,7oO Other expenses 3,4C0 Labor 37,200 Internal revenue 1,500 Local taxes 000 Direct tax 2,100 Total, ready for sea, $90,050 The total cost of this vessel, ready for sea, was accordingly about $74 a ton, which is less than the average, Our neighbors in the Brit ish Provinces are said to build vessels of this class for $40 a ton in gold, which is also a moderate estimate. Witli gold at 140 this would be equivalent to $50 a ton in currency. The relief which must he granted accordingly, to give our builders an equal chance, must ■ amount to about 25 per cent, of the total cost of the vessel. The measure of the relief af forded by Mr. Lynch’s proposition will be found by deducting the tax of $1,500 and the duties on $57,350 worth of materials from the total cost. The present tariff averages about 40 per cent. Itoughly then the drawback on $57,350 will be $22,940 which added to $1,500 comes to $24,440. The drawback would not probably Teach quite this figure; but it is evi dent that it will afford a measure of relief suf ficiently near the requirement to save this im portant industry. Is there any good reason why it should not he granted? The remis sion of taxes as well as duties is a necessity, unless we choose to discriminate in favor ot foreign materials, which would be needless fol'y. __ Coast survey Bf.1‘Ot:t.—We are indebted to the Ifon. John Lynch for a copy of the offi cial report just issued of the operations of the United States Coast Survey in 1S94. At that lime the survey was in full co-operation with the blockading squadrons and with the Union armies ir the field. Four parties were acting under the orders of Admiral Lee, lliree with as many vessels under Admiral I)ahlgren,aud two under Admiral Porter; six parties were employed in military surveys in Western Vir ginia, two at Knoxville, live at Chattanooga, ooe in Louisiana, one in Texas, and one in Florida. Meanwhile the regular work was proceeding on the Northern Atlantic coast, without interruption, and was only retarded on the Pacific by the serious depreciation of the paper currency of the Government, The appendix to this volume contains the last three parts of Prot. Boche's elaborate dis cussion of the magnetic oi'servatlons made under his direction at Girard College in 1840 45. Prof. Peirce has a note on fhe progress of the computations for the longitude of American stations from the European merid ian, by occultations of the Pleiades—a meth od a liich is already superseded by flic laying of the Atlantic cable. Dr. Gould reports briefly on tire telegraphic method of determ ining longitudes. Assistant Schott presents Gauss’s solution of the problem of determin ing a position by angles observed upon any number of stations, “the n-point problem,” as Mr. Schott appropriately names it, with an example. Mr. Schott’s report on the geodetic connection of the Epping base line with fbo primary triangulation in the Eastern Stales, furnishes an instructive example of the pro cess ot reductiou followed by the Coast Sur vey. Under the head of developments anu dis coveries we notice the determination of the position of Birch Point ledge in Wise asset bay, of a rock near Clou's ledge in Sheepscot riv er, and ot the White Head ground, about eight miles to the eastward of Cape Elizabeth. Among the charts are Easlport harbor and approaches, Rockport and Camden harbors, and Boothbav harbor in this State. Positions in latitude and longitude are given in Passa tnaquoddy bay and the St. Croix river, Goulds borougb, Naraguagus, Pleasant, Chandler’s, Englishmen's aud Macliias bays, Penobscot bay and river, St. George’s river, Muscongus bay, and the Damariscotta, Kennebec and Androscoggin rivers. The tide tables are en larged and improved. We are not surprised to learn that a large demand for these reports is springing up arnoug practical navigators. Tiif, Intkemaiuuagk Bill.—On Wednes day, as lias been before stated, the House re lused to reconsider the vote whereby the lull was indefinitely postponed, the vote ataudmg for reconsideration 17 against 17. lue rress this morning in publishing the ayes and nays, uses the following very delicate aud generous language: “Members who did not regard them selves as standing in any particular need ot legislation to prevent them from marrying ne groes, voted aye: members who wanted all the safeguards ot' the law, voted no." The people will be glad to see this discussion prolonged. —Star. Why don’t you prolong it then ? Cra.miMi.m-r ... the Fn-nrh Cx p„.iliail lias aj.|Mi|nted Jtlenry li. Humphrey, is*,. i,„ some time a resident ol this city, lo represent tliat State as Commissioner to the Worlds Fair, to he held in Paris this summer. This is a deserved compliment to a true gentleman Mr. Humphrey, or as he should now be rail ed, Col. liumphiey, tor he has been attached to the Governor's stall, is a native of Huston, where lie is well known lor iiis literary tastes and his interest in the line arts. For several past yean he has resided in Thomastou, Me., where lie, in a remarkable manner, proved his loyalty to his country by tendering to Gov. YYuoUburn|au entire battery of light artillery, to he furnished at his own private expense, lie has served the Government acci ptubly as consul to Alexandria, and is now about to visit Europe lor the purposejof intending the | lair, and lor making investigations in science and the arts. V\re wisli Him a happy and sue cfNdlul toui1.—Sumluy Timex. We think the selection of Col. Humphrey as Commissioner to the French Exposition, is a very fortunate one. No man, perhaps, could he lound who is belter qualified for the posi tion. A former resident in Palis, associating in the first literary and diplomatic circles, lie is quite at home in that metropolis, is famil iar with its institutions, and lias a perfect commaud of the French language, which must give him a great advantage in his intercourse with the managers and exhibitors at the Fair, and in his means of collecting facts and ideas of use to the (State lie will represent. Col. II. is a literary gentleman of ample pecuniary means. In an interview which was enjoyed the other day at the house of the writer, who was Commissioner of the State to the London Exhibition in 1851, \ye were somewhat sur prised when he described to us the extent ol' his Library, on which lie U.is insurance by live dillereut companies to the amount of sijrty thousand dollars. In rtply to our question as to its value, he replied that disinterested parries, he supposed, would apprise it at oue hundred thousand dollar's It embraces works of great antiquarian interest, besides almost every thing valuable in American or European literature. He has recently given six thous and dollars towards the Memorial nail at Cam bridge, in honor of his brethren of the Alumni who fell in the late rebellion. Whilst IT. S. Consul at Alexandria, lie availed himself ol the opportunity to visit all tire interesting points in Egypt, Palestine, Syria, Ac., and, al ter the French Expos itiou, he proposes to spend, with his wile who accompanies him, a year or more in visiting Austria, Prussia, ltus sia, Swcdeu and Denmark. In the language of the Boston Times, “we wish him a happy and successftrl tour.” Ex-Mayor Shaw ot Bid deford, we believe, is the only colleague of C >l. Humphrey to Paris. He has given us encour agement, that whilst attending the Exposition in Paris, and during his travels in central and northern Europe, lie will favor us with occa sional cotrcspoudcnee iu which case we shall take pleasure in laying it before the readers of the Press. __Tuaxi. Knrourngrnirnt to Shipbuilder-. The twenty-second section of tlie Tar iff billl as it passed the Senate, provides, That on and after the 1st day of April, 18(17, there shall be allowed and paid a drawback equal iu amount to the import duty paid on ali lumber, hemp, .MauiJa, copper, nuu upon ail iron not advanced in manufacture beyond rods, bars, and bolts which shall be brought up into the construction of rigging or equipment ot sailing vessels ut the Unit'd States, or used in repairing vessels of foreign build, documented iu conformity with the provisions ol the act ol 2:kl December, 1852, less five per cent, on tin amount of suc h drawback, which shall be re tained for the use ot the United States under such regulations as the Secretary of the Treas ury may prescribe. On the last of the ten days during which the bill was before tlie Senate, Mr. Uoudcrson of Missouri moved to strike out the section. We copy trom the Globe the leading points of the debate which followed: Mr. Henderson—It will be observed that this section as it stands is an absolute discrimina tion in favor of a certain sectiou of the coun try, and 1 desire to know whether the Senate in passing a Tariff bill is disposed to discrim nate iu tuvor of vessels built in any particular section ol this country . 1 wish to call the attention ot the Senate and the attention of tbe country to the tact, and il gentlemen then wish to put their names on the leeonl on the subject, they can do so. Mr. President, I shall content myself with the opposition 1 have made to this bill. 1 liave other amendments but 1 shall not oiler more than one or two; perhaps not even that many, for 1 see that it is au utter impossibility to move this bony. We are told the tiling lias all been examined, it has ali been looked into;” and quietly, silently and calmly, all propositions that come trom a certain direc tion are voted down. It avails nothing that an interest in my section suffers; but if the woolen interest of Massachusetts suiters. ! modification! are made,and all the opposi tion that was threatened trom that quarter, 1 apprehend, has passed away to he revived no more, fl the bill is to hustrate the great shipbuilding Interests ol Maine, bow is that to be avoided ? It is to be avoided by return ing every dollar that is paid to the foreign munulacturer lor the articles entering into the construction of the vessel. That is to be returned as a bonus to the man who makes the vessel. Yet, if I were to propose, with regard to vessels built at St. Louis or Galena or Louisville or other points along the west ern waters, that tlie same bounty should he returned to the builders, how would the prop osition be leceived iu this body i* Mr. President, let the fate of the few amendments I iiave offered answer the que ry. You know what would become ot it. Am I to he told again “this tiling has Lccu con sidered iu committee; we know how it stands; and the Senator from Missouri is ignorant ot he talks about ?” Perhaps it is so; but I only crave the privilege of easting my vote in fa vor of striking out that section from this bill. Mr Johnson—It by no means follows that because a diaw back is uotgivcu to vessels that are built on the Mississippi and on tlie Ohio it ought uot to he given to any other vessels. If you cannot get it lor the West, give it to the East. Mr. Henderson—I ask tlie Senator if lie is in favor ot giving it lo the West. Mr. Joliusou—I would be. Mr. Henderson—Will you vote lor a projios itiou to i hat elleet ? Mr. Johnson—Well, let it come before us. Mr. Fessenden—I w ill say just one word; 1 do not wish to make an argument on this question, for 1 suppose it is ery well under stood. ill regain 10 tuis particular turn I put in steamers as well as sailing vessels; I had an amendment made to that effect. 1 thought I was authorized by the committee to offer it; but my friend from Ohio [Mr. Sherman J thought 1 was not, at any rate so tar as lie was concerned; and to Settle the question I moved to strike out the words “or steam” from the section, stating at the time that I should vote myself to retain those w ords, my ohj'yct in making the motion being merely ti> la-in's the question before the .Senate. My friend b paa Ohio, who is iroin the West, ex plained lire reasons why lie thought it would nut do to apply the section to steamers, and so satisfactorily to gentlemen that a large ma jority of the Senate voted to strike out thosr words against my vote and my opinion, j tliiuk that is a sufficient answer in relation to that jioink With regard to the thing itsell. 1 can only say that alter a great deal ol deliberation, for several days at times, thinking it ail over and looking upon it in every light, the committee were unanimous in agreeing that it ought to be done# because they thought, as the honor able Senator Irotu Maryland has expressed it, that a CQUUivircial marine rvas of some conse quence to the country; that it was of some consequence to the coiintiy to preserve the sea-going men; that k was ol consequence to the country to presetves.be art of ship-budd ing'to some extent, which has given us so much renown. The eoiumitteee thought ibis was ir great national interest, as much » as a factory or anything else it being rvmm ret, or rather navigation, a branch ot commerce, and this seemed to be the on .v^way navigation in its now cwuuuon m"arePpmUcnla.ly interested ip, my sec tion ot the country, because we live light aJongsidc the Uriiish Provinces, where they build*vessels at ball ot tin* rate we cau; and so lar 0 my State is concerned it is uIkjui the onlv thing in this hill in wt. ich it has auy very considerable interest, and there are many oili er sections of the country tiyat have alt o a large interest in it. I have stiu'ed the reason why it was put in, after carelul deliberation, as t said beiore, by the unanimous consent of the committee, and l hope it will b>-‘ rctaiued by the Senate. Mr. Henderson—I wish to call tin* atten tion ol the Senator to one tact, that in lids bill every stick of ship-timber that goes Into the vessel is free, being put on the free list. Mr. Fessenden—Then there will be nothing to be returned for the timber. Mr. Henderson—You get the timber tree. I and then you get a drawback upon all the other materials in the ship: upon the iron, the hemp, the cordage, the canvas, aud every thing ot that character. Mr. Fessenden—We get it upo n nothing that has gone into a slate ot magiutacture. We get it on raw materials. ' Mr. Henderson—Tot; e,,f «J1 the timlM r free*; but if we build a fence In the West we pay an increased price, because ot the increas ed duty, it there it; anything in duties. Mr. Fessenden—I suppose every Senator understands the matter; an I ii the reasons for patting in the section are not sufficient they will vote down the section; otherwise they will retain it. Mr. Jiavis—I'here is a large amount of steamboat tonn ige built at ( Ineinnati, Louis ville. and New Orleans, 'i'here is a large amount ol foreign louuagc in the form of saii ing sh'ps built at FortlunU and oilier ports r mill m the Last and N ml liras;. New, sir. I repeat the question of the Ncnator from Mis souri. as there are many articles of foreign import upon which duties are paid that enter into the construction of both classes of ves sels. how IS it I hat tin- bill authorizes a draw back u,nn all the foreign articles that cuter into the mannlucture of sailing ships, a d ‘tuliolds it only from all the articles oi lor eign mauulacuire tlialentcr into the const! uc tinu of steamboats ? The Senator from Mary land asks whether, even though it be niiicst that there should In* ibis discrimioatiou, tin* tael ot ties drawback not being allowed upon tin* construction of Western steamboats is a sufficient rea-ou why it should not be allow ed upon the const ruction of Eastern sailing vessels. 1 say lliat the system ought to lie one ol reciprocity; that there is no justice, there is no wisdom, there is no ktatesiiiansbiji in a system that makes such a discrimination and wiicn that discrimination is established i; is a sufficient reason to me to Vote against the whole system. Mr Fowler—I wish simply to state a few reasons why I cannot support tiiis ameinl nient. in the fust pl,u*c l am in Isvorof the section in, it stands, provided oiu interests are protected also. 1 do not sc** any good rea son why the interest of the ship-builders should lie protected at the East and those of the West should not l>e. 1 am in tavorol ex tending this protection alike to both, and I should like it amended so as to give that pro tection. I cannot nppmf exactly the meas ure ot the Senator from .Missouri, because I am in favor of extending protection to this class ol interests; neither could I support a hill that would discriminate so improperly agaue.t other interests. Mr. Fessenden—l will say to the Senator there is nothing sect ional about it. Solar as steamers arc concerned, we bull I s(earners at the East as well as al tin* \\ ext. We build steamers all along the Atlantic line, large steamers and small. I was lor includin' them all in the section; hut tin* Senate decided,and not by Eastern votes particularly, lint on mo tion of the honorable Senator Ironi < iliio, that it was not advisable to extend it to river-go ing steamer.*,. Mr. Fowler—1 do not wish to he under stood as charging anything sectional. Mr. Fessenden— The see.ion covers ail sailing vessels built anywhere in the United States. Mr. Cattell—I wish to say that this was the unanimous opinion of the committee. That is not very important, nor are their opinions in the view ol the Senator trom Missouri of very much weight; nevertheless, I desire to relieve the .Senator fix m Maine hum the ap parent ini|iutation that it may have proceeded from him. The committee were entirely unanimous on this subject. It was shown to the committee that a ship could he built in -N ova Scotia at very nearly titty per ciut. less than it could he built in Maine. There was no possible w ay of protecting it that could be seen in accordance with our laws and treaty regulations, save by a drawback, And it was unanimously agreed that it was one ot those interests worthy to be protected in the best form we could, and 1 believe lbe committee were entirely unanimous in the opinion that this craw back eught to be given. Mr. Henderson—i desire tusay once for all that if Senators imderstood me as imputing anything wrong to the Senator trom Maine, they arc very much mistaken. I have alto gethet a dilferent opiniou of that Senator. I apprehend that the Senator from Maine de sired to protect his own jieople. as 1 desire to protect the interests of mine. 1 do not Idame him lor that. He was sent here lor that pur pose;—not to look after their interests alone.
