The public good is the rule by w hich we s-hould be guided in the per-iormance of relative dunes; and to ibis central point the legislature ahould invariably direct all its deliberations. At an early day, I took lessons iu the school of Simon Snv-der on this very question of protection to the infant manufactures of the Union ; and time has had no effect to change my view and wishes, w hich have been expressed in the Senate, in fevor of a permanent establishment ol a home markef.as the only solid basis ol national propurny : And here I nn ad ), it is very re-nai kalile thnt all the Democratic Governors of this Common- in- i tv.n!ih ttt.urr. ta f'-.iv- Shotilt have n-sio. 1 ained ground in favor of prolecl.on tvj hOn.e lubor.

And as a free man, born upon the soil, I may be permit ted to regard, with no ordinary t-olicitude, the onward prosperity of ihe iron, coal aud agricultural interests of this State The new settlements being ot-ened up in ihe far W'rst, embracing ihe Territories 01 Texas, California and Oteon, must of ne- cessity increase ihe surplus produce of the soil. Upon foreign countries our farmers can never depend with ecrlauity, tor a per ma nent, profitable market. It is then lore thesafest nd wisest policy lo create a home market for ihe Ihrmer, by encouraging do mestic manufactures, ui.tier Hii-.li revenue laws as shall secure to the American n.e chanicthe rewards of his labor in his own market. Let the pauper labor, of Europe continue nut a lew years 10 nood our coun try with ihe productions ol foreiu work shops, and it the past history cf the wor'd by which we may be guided m our dttii?. rations on this subject, then I Venture t predict that all the leading interests ol Penn splvania and of the Union the iron.
