On this subject I will let him speak for himselfr September, 184 1, he said, "He should vote for the tux on tea and coffee. Tt Was necessary under 'his calculations, and as he found he wni 'to lie deserted by it portion of his friends, (tariff men,) he trusted that some of Mhnse opposed to him, (tree trade men of the South,) would vote for th's tax. If they did not, "the result would inevitably be that at the next ;ev!ion the 'tax would be certainly imposed, or a higher duty than is authorised by the compromise '-act levied on other articles.
