We then, under " the benign influence " of that policy, which had in the brief period of five years raised the nation from Ihe lowest depth of g loom and despondency to a smte of hi gh prosperity, were enabled to infuse into the circulation of the country no (ess than ttcenty-tiro millions of gold—and the reason why we are enabled lo do this, was, that, by help of the tarifFof 1842, we were supplying ourselves wiih home-made iron, home-made cloih, and home-grown sugar. The revenue tariff of 1840-42 hud given us shin-plasters., but the protective tariff of 1842 gave us gold and silver.
