The aame disgraceful ecane are to be act ed over and over again, to the deep reproach of tne conn try. u tne prevent maanractorte are raSared to foil, the government will look in rain tor mean to avert those calamitiee. Surrounded with many embarranmenta, government, during the war, aaw fit to enfloorage manufacturing ettabMuoent ; and thoee who embarked their capital, it i humbly conceived, were warranted in the expectation of each continuing tupport of government a ahould protect I heir interact a - gaiaat that foreign rivalahip and hottility which m now operating to their ruin. They had a right, a they conceive, to expect !hif from what the government owed to ttaelf and to the independ ence and beet iatemta of the country, a well a from the example of other oation in Lke cir - - In reviewing (he dieetutlon o thit great qoet - tum, your petition en feel (haoualve juatified in aaying, that the queation ha not baan it all time &triy mat on iU true merit. We have been conatrained to witneat alarm aoanded, a though anew principle wa to be introduced, and the ; coon try now, for the firrt time, taaod (or the - mere oeoent or maauiactoriea, wtiat can be more untrue and unjust? We need not remind th honorable the conrree of the United State of what it known to all, that from the Bnteetab - . lUhment of the government, tpe - ial regard ba been had, in laying impost and taite, to the protection of domestic maaufactHret, by increatinj th duties on imported article coming in competition. ' Again, the tariff, in prolectinz manufac tares, ha bean represented as taxing the farmer and planter for th benefit of the manurictnrer : and hence, attempt have been made to excite popular prejudice asainst the latter. We need not dwell oa thit topic, in showing how unjurt to fauriduak and injurious to (he country the cnarre m. a it respects toe manufactariugdi - . tricla of the United 6 tales, tuers is no distinct ckus of mannfacturara, no tta ration of the ma nfaotomr and fanner t It, it th tanner himself who m the manufacturer t he Invest hi money . m maaafaoturittg stock. With the exception of a n w lactones, in or near tne great towns, by rar the greater part of mann factoring stock will ba lonad m u iiaaj ef the rarmcr. Between different district or ilntes. one ma - , noJacturing and the ether not, a different ques tion arise, wtucn resolve itself into a mere e - qnality or apportionment of iaxe on th differ ant part ef the Union; and here it will be seen, on a view of the whole system of impost and taxes, that no injustice ia done, a th mauufac taring district have, and still do, contribute .. their fall proportion to the public treasury. Oi the internal taxes, it will appear, that they have paid an amount greatly beyond th numerical standard or rut of apportionment prescribed bytn conttitatjoa. The tact is not hare men tionsd for th purpose o( complaint, but to show now fallacious it w to select the duty ooapartt - . eular article, to settle th question of equality in the general apportionment of taie. We might again coo&Jeatir appeal to the tariff of impoita. andaskif the duty it not greater on many other article than en Imported cloths (with tu ex ceptioe of Certain coarse and almost nselew cot ton of the East - India. ) Thi is believed to be the case with most of the specific duties, and emutentiy so in some mstance.

That cation xsamet to mns:ctsr sor a.i oa. tiomv but will receire the manufactaree ef none, So tenacious, so jealous k aba of the first dawning of maanfacture elsewhere, that the binds even the bands of her own colonist. Th Jea lousy of parliament wa excited, nearly a century ago, try tha petty hat manufactory of Massachusetts! and an act of parliament actually passed, in lb reign of George the second, prohibiting ihe e reel ion of furnace, in British Ame - nca, (or slitting irjej. The treat Chatham, the least bostil to Bri tih America of Dritish miuistert, in bis speech in the house of lords, on Ihe address to th throne in 1770, expressed his atmost alarm at the first efforts at manufacture in America. Mr. Brougham, adistinroithedmemberofthe British parliament, recently declared in hit place. that it wa well worth while, at the close of tha late war, to Incur - a lorn en the ex nort a Lion to the United State, in order to stifle in the era - die our rising manufacture. It bin vain for any man to shut hit eye against the active rival snip and perse verm r nostilitr of British mann (actor s and when the capital, th deep - rootod esiaoiisnment, the improved machinery, and lb kill of th British manufacturer, protected as no always is Dy tn government, are considered. it ought not to excite surprise that the American manuiacturer, witliout the. support of bis government, it found unequal to the contest. But jfclding to mannfactories reasonable support in their infancy, the government will, at no distant penou, find them lle to defend themselves gainst foreign competition and hostility, and at me same tune make ample return to the nation tor its protecting kindness. It wa th opinion of Mr. Hamilton, former secretary of the treasury of th United Stt te. a well u of sir James atewart, that no new ma nufactory can o tablished. in the present state of the world, without encouragement from go - It cost the English parliament a rtrumrle of 40 ! vtwmraciug m uie retgo oi bawara intra, to get the belter of the established manufactures oft lander. It is believed that much less n couragement from government would place (he manufacturer of th United 8tate on a secure foundation. While the writers of (hat nation are teen to hichly commend the principle of Ad am Smith, that industry ought to be left to pur sue it own course, without tb interference of th legislature, th government has. at all time. and uudr every vicissitude, turned a deaf ear to Ihe lemon, a thoneh it were intended for other nations, ana earned legislative regulations into every department ana avenue of industry. Tb Bntitb statute book rroatu under those renin tion. Th policy of ihe rovernment ha proved triumphant immeasurable wealth flowed in up on the nation, giving it a power and control ever oiner nation atver before attained, and to long enjoyed by any people to inconsiderabl in num. oers. But let no one marine that a rentral tvstem manuiacraret u now proposed te be introduced into the United State. . We would be nndar. stood a limiting our view to tb manufactories already established t to av (hose, which have hot already fallen, from the ruin which threaten them. ' - After all that the present manufactories ran supply, there will remain to foreign importation an amount, it is believed, equal, if not exceeding the mean of the country to pay (or. nai importation, let it be remembered, will be mostly from a country which shuts h er ports gainst the production of the United State. and keep them so, unlet the necessities of her manufactories, or hunger and (edition open them , and then the fatal suspension of ten prove, as tba experience of the ill - rated hipper ef bread stuffs, the present year, will attest, a mere denoy to ruin. Lord Sheffield, the year 1783, declared that, except in time war, mere never wa a market (or American wheat in Great Britain, exceeding three or lour years inmewnnie. ; There wa a time when the balance of trade, believed m both countries to be generally asrainst the United States, was, in some degree, satisfied counter balanced by a (avoralil trad with West Indies ; but a recent change of policy the Britiih councils ha cot off that resource, and th parent ttate prefer exposing hr colo nies to iiarving, ratnar tnan open her porta to amenrau commerce. ' It is obvious how mnch that government pre sumes on it advantages over us. oa the predi lection oi our citizen ar unum manuiacturaa, and th influence of toe liberal purchases in the south of the material for her cotton mfiniifar - turet. ... . . t We hope to be excated in repelling the nn warrantable imptitalioa bestowed on mannfac tories of woollen and cotton as being injurious to me neaiui ana moms oi tne community. On this point we may content ourselves with referring to the healthful site of our factories, the spacious work - rooms (req'Ured by tb neot machinery,) and appeal to every man who vuntea a lactory, tor tesumony agamtt. th imputation. What is th experience eo the ub - ject t Scotland manufactures not only what is required lor it ni habitants. Put about five mil lion of dollar annually in tb article of cotton atone, for ef portal ion, and yet, in both it phy sical and moral character that nation sustain a high elevation.. Wa look in vain for evidence that the arms of Scotchmen" have been withered their manufactories, nor do w recollect th field of battle in Europe where the arm of any nation war found stronger in conflict. To swell the tale of prejudice against manu factures, it b said that unreasonable price for goods were dsmwvled at th period of tb late war. . 1 o reason with sncn objections would be mere wast of time. We might ask what mcr - thint, mechanic or farmer, in any age or coon try, ever forbore to raw hi prices according to the demand in (he market I It enter into, first principles. Did the importer treble hit first coat Lis cloths, even on smuggled goods, and doe make the charge of extortion against saaau facturers ! The war unhinged every thing, and chawed th whol order of 'society and course bii - toe - s. It mieht have been expected, that the pre sent (alien condition of manufactures would have (ootbed prejudice and disarmed hostility With all their alledred war profit, there are now none so poor. .
