Mr. Bbephard of Texas, a wool grower, spoke of the aH’ity of the borne grower to supply Hie home iimrket with car|>et and Other wools.

The call for free wool was made bv only a few manufacturers and he knew of no grower who want**! it, but on the contrary, if wool should be admitted fits* he knew it would drive them all out of the business. An address prepared bv Mr. McDowell of IVnnsyivania favoring protection to woo! in all forum was read. SOMX WOOL STATISTICS. Hon.
