Since the days of Tyre and Sidon, commerce and manufactures have been regarded as sources of greater wealth, ag riculture of least profit. In Europe tariffs are made to protect the farmer; commerce and manufactures are able to protect them selves. With us on the contrary, the far mers are not only richer than the trader, the merchant, the manufacturer, but tar iffs are enacted to protect the latter Agri culture not only protects itself but '"carries on its shoulders commerce .arid ' manufac tures. In despHte of oppressive legislation, we find these agricultural, slave-holding States, in wealth, far in advance of New England, with its unequalled commerce, its unrivalled manufactures.'

The woman of the house had jUTt placed a large tea machine, full of boiling water, in the court; "the bear smelt of it and burned his nose; provoked at the pain he vanted all his fury upon the kettle, folded his fore paws round it, pressed it with his whole strength against his breast to crush it, and burnt himself, of course, still more and more.
