Protected Coppeb The New York Times very pertinently calls attention to the protection given to American copper. By the existing tariff all imported copper, "in plates, bars, ingots, pigs and other forma not manufactured, pays a duty of Ave cents per pound, whilst rolled and manufactured Copper pays a duty of forty-five per centum ad valorem. The Lake Superior copper mines are the richest in the world, and copper is mined there in such quantities and in such native purity that even if foreign copper were admitted free, American copper, from its quality and comparative cheapness of production, would drive it out of the market. The proof of this is in the fact that American Copper is shipped to England now and sold in open market in successful competition with the foreign product. The condition of sale is that the purchaser shall give a bond, whereby he contracts to destroy the package in which the American copper was shipped. "The reason for this caution." savs the Times, "is apparent, for, unless prevented, the buyer might send back the coprter to the United States, and, claiming free admittance for it as a package of American goods which had never been opened, sell it in New York at an increr.se "6umcient to pay a handsome profit. In other words, American producers of copper can make money by selling it in Europe at some forty per cent, less than the price they obtain here. By having an enormous duty placed upon the article a duty obtained by the skillful manipulation or members of Congress all foreign competition is excluded, while home rivalry is prevented and the price kept up by a strong and well-arranged combination of the producers." The result is that the mining company in whose name the copper is shipped has grown enormously wealthy by charging American purchasers forty per cent, more for copper than the company is selling the same articie for in England. Its stock has risen in value from-fire dollars to from one hundred and fifty to one hundred and eighty-five dollars a share, and upon the latter valuations it has been paying an average dividend of not less than fifteen dollars a share. This is but one of the scandals of our tariff. There are other special industries that are equally enriched at the expense of the American people. And yet. whenever it is attempted to simplify the tariff, so as to make it what it ons-ht to be. a tariff for revenue purposes only, with the incidental protection to American industries which such a tariff would give, so great is the power of the lobby, and so strongly intrenched are the firms and corporations in whose interest the tariff has been framed, that neither committees of revision nor Congress itself seem capable of withstanding the influences that are brought to bear upon them. Hkating Cities with Hot Water The Prall Company, represented by William E. Prall, Wm. H. Webb. Frank E. Trowbridge and others, have applied for permission to heat public buildings and private houses in New York by hot water. At the same time General Spinola is pushing the Holly plan for heating the city by steam. It would seem also from tentative movements in some directions as if gas were to become a competitor with steam and water for heating purposes. However this may be, the Prall Hot Water Heating Company disavow any intention of interfering with any other system, but believe the Prall system will be found the best. They are willing also to pay the city for the privilege of using the streets five per cent, of their net profits, or a fixed sum fpr each running foot of pipe. They also offer to famish heat to the public buildings for forty per cent, less than the present cost, and to enter in bond for $50,000 as a guarantee that the street pavements torn up in laying the pipes shall be replaced in a proper manner. With electricity producing heat, light and power, with coal gas capable of being used for similar purposes, with steam for beating and as a motive power and water for heating only, we seem to be entering upon a social and industrial revolution. New Publications From Baltimore News Company: "Hannibal's Man," and other tale?. By Leonard Kip. Albany, N. Y.: The Argus Company. "The series of stories, six in number, forming this book, were, with one exception, contributed to the Albany (New York) Argus, and have for their sub-title "The Argus Christmas Stories." They are all very cleverly written, and will be found quite enjoyable reading, whether at Christmas or any other time. "The Shadow of Hampton Head." By Mrs. Van Loon. Philadelphia: T. B. Peterson & Brothers. This novel, by a Southern lady, i3 dedicated to Wade Hampton. The sceue of it is laid partly at the South and partly in England. The plot is made up of the fortunes and misfortunes of three families, and the incidents as romantic and sensational as the most exacting novel reader could wish. How the story develops itself and how it ends must be left to be discovered by the readers of it. But as the vicissitudes of the principal personages take them from their Southern plantations to what are styled "an earl's palatial home in Lancashire and an ocean-washed castle in Cornwall," it can be safely said that it covers a wide field, and gives a fine opportunity for the exercise of the descriptive powers of the author. From Cushinsrs fc Bailey: . "The Return of the Native," by T. Hardy; "The First Violin," by Jessie Fothcrs-iil; "A Century of American Literature," by Heury T. Beers. The three volumes of which we give above the title constitute the latest aclditious to the Leisure Hour-Series, published by Henry Holt & Co., New York. "The Return of the Native," by T. Hardy, has been running through Harper's Magazine for several months, and its merits are consequently very 'well known to quite a number of readers. Among the later English novelists Mr. Hardy occupies a distinctive place, at once quaint and original. In one sense he may be styled a realistic writer, so finely trained are his descriptive powers iu all that relate to Enslish country life and to natural phenomena. The speech of hia English peasants is almost Shakspearian in its quaiut-ness, whilst he delineates rnral scenes and rural objects with a minuteness of detail that can only be compared with the pictures of the old Dutch painters. The novel under notice touches a higher social plane than some of those by the same author that preceded, it, but there is enough of country life in it to give it zest, whilst in point of plot and effective contrast of character it ranks with the best Mr. Hardy has written. Among the musical novels in course of publication in the Leisure Hour Series "The First Violin" will take its place with the best. It is a well-told story of German art-life, told in the first person, and permeated throughout with' music and the sayings and doings ot musical people, their professional troubles and vexatious, their friendships and their loves. In "A Century of American Literature" Mr. Beers has given a series of selections from the published works of prominent authors and humorists, besinnicg with Philip Freneau and ending with Artemus Ward. An introduction to the book covers the colonial period, and gives brief extracts from some of the writers of that period. A biographical sketch of each author precedes the selections from his works, and thus adds to the value of the book. The compilation has been made with skill and judgment, and in these days of rapid reading and condensation will probably fill a want that has been felt by many who have neither the leisure nor the inclination to make researches for themselves. We have from Tnrnbnll Brothers a neatly printed volume of poetry, entitled "A Dream of Arcadia, and Other Verses," by Lawrence B. Thomas. Mr. Thomas is of a well-known Baltimore family long connected with the Society of Friends, and in some very interesting biographical sketches he has already taken some pains to trace back his relatives and their affii-ations by marriage. In the poetical venture under notice he discloses an easy talent for versification and a tender vein of sentiment. From Lane A Hart, publishers, Harrisburg, Pa., we have a "History of the First United States Flag,v by Col. J. Franklin Reinhart. It does not occupy more than eight royal octavo pages, and resolves itself into a brief biography of Mrs. Betsy Ross, the maker of it, and whose portrait in colors graces the title page. Magazines and Reviews. "The North American Review" for January. The most prominent articles in this number are "The Fishery Award," by Senator Edmunds; "Cities as Units in Onr Polity," by William R. Martin, and "The Solid South," by Henry Watterson. Ex-Secretary Bontwell has also an article on "Finance," which is better than most ol his lucubrations on the subject.
