Tbe TarHFof 1843. ! The federalists arc pretending to take the field upon the tariff of, 1843, anil to make that the issue, They would have the people believe that they are the fathers of this law, and that its perpetuity depends on the election of Henry Clay. This comes with poor grace from those who laid every obstacle-in the .way of its passage, until compelled to sustain it. They made virtue of necessity, and submitted to what they had not the courage to oppose anyi. longer. The artifice and management employed by the federal'members of Qongressi to defeat this bill; is fresh, in the recbllectiod of every one. Their opposition to the bill, they pretended was fit consequence ofthe striking out of the distribution clause. It was in the power of. the federals in the House to have passed this bill at any time; they had a large majority; But instead of showing then the attachment for the tariff that they now do; instead then of making it the issue between the democratic and f...

Clay on tlie Tariff--]*ew Euition. Our readers may hereafter expect from Mrs Clay until the election, a new arid different set of opinions on the tariff.—- He is deteimined. to be on the right side. The last given by him we find irt'ljis letter to ihe citizens of Pittsburg of .Dec. 2d. He says that the revenue " should be raised exclusively by duties on foreign imports, and that in arranging a tariff of those duties reasonable, moderate and certain protection should be extended to our domestic interests." From a high protective tariff, Mr. Clay in order to keep peace with public opinion, has, dwindled down to a reasonable,' moderale and certain protection. We hope to hear nothing more from the federalists about Gen'l Jackson's judicious tariff. We hope the Argus will stick the above clause in their standing, article on the tariff affix^ tbe date, as.it ought the other extracts on Clay's opinion. We suggest that the editors leave the balance of the divided column blank, to be f...
