Revenue and Protection. ; 1 The federalists tell oa that our manufactures ought to be protected against the* ruinous competition brought about by the introduction into our markets of foreign fabrics. That Arnerican industry cannot be sustained without protection. — That without it the maufacttires must beg or submit to the pauper wages of England. They' say also, that nothing short of this will prevent our country from being drained of its specie. All this sounds well, appears plausible, and is food for popular excitement. But why do not the federalists stick to their text ? Why is it that they have, so generally abandoned the protectivs doctrine and now clamor for a revenue for protection !| What has induced the change? can it be anything else, than the certain impracticability of the doctrine,'and its unwelcome reception by the people T : Having, * as we believe successfully driven the federalists from, the protective tariff doctrine, they now present us with something en ...
