Operation of the .present Tariff "What's in a: name!" is an old saying, and one-which tn^prbjectors of a tariff must have well considered, before they gave Ntlie name of "protective tariff," to laws" building up the rich, and depressing'the poor. There is something in this name at leasUwhich' at .first prepossesses the casual reader and observer in its favor. The idea of fostering and encouraging home, manafactores, of being' dependent on no foreign country, is a patriotic and American feeling, and those who do not; trace cause aud effect are very apt to fall in with that unjust and oppressive measure, a high prolectiv e tariff, as being most likely ~~ to-e*fTect -this.' They look upon it merely as an enactment which •hall shut out all foreign commodities, and supply their place wi*h articles of j horaemanufacturest' But in doing this they do. not reflect that the duty must be paid by the consuming class of community, who are principally., the ones (least able to pay it, jan...

Right side of tne Question The whigs ^are asserting with more than usual confidence that they have the rjght side of the question. The Argus asserts it more than once in the last riumber^and therefore encourages the hope of an easy victory. Now if the whigs with similar assurance should assert that they were on all sides of the question, the history of their party would sustain it. They have been distinguished ;by some dozen or moVe names, and have sailed under as many piratical flags.— Were they on! the right side of the-question in 1798'when they sustained the Elder Adams withUiis alien and sedition and gag laws in opposition to Thomas Jeffetson I were tbsy on, the tight Side in opposing the election of Jair.es Madison ? were lhey on thexright side, when opposing the declaration of the last war, and congratulating the British on every occasion of their success? were they on the right side when by a corrupt/ bargain and sate with Henry Clay, they succeeded in defeating) Gen...

The Biabt of Petition. Henry Clay is making use of his cunning and craft to secure the abolition vote. He is determined, if possible by any assurance he can give, to flatter and coax the abolitionists inta bis support.. Mr. Garland, in a recent speech, made at jOberhn, Ohio, read.a letter from Mr. Cfay, highly lauditory of Mr. Garland and his labors in the cause of the aboli tionists. (The people at Obeilih were not to be feoaped in this way, and some of them have come out against him. . The Bradford Argus is piping the same tune, {although it attempts to make capital in another way. In its minutes of the proceedings of Congress they say that when the question was. taken on the 2tst; rule "affecting the right of petition." the whigs axl voted for it and those who votetl against it are aix Iocofocos. Intimating thereby that the whigs are in favor;t)f the right off petition and the Dej mocrats are all against. It is by ,thisj kind of misrepresentation and falsehood that the-wh...
