The resolutions of the Senate assume that the Tariff of is per cent the amendment of the gentleman from Westmoreland leaves the subject open neither denying or admitting Ibe Amend ment of die from Bradford lakes the Broad that the Riff of 1842 13 adjust oppressive and Par tial its provisions and thai ought to be modified thai is Ibe whole question and a wide and Broad question it that i con fess i do not feel competent to investigate As it should be investigated it has been Here on this floor that this was a subject not Uii Hin the of his House and that any action which we might Lake Here would have Little or no effect on the general question i admit sir it is a question a bib we cannot decide ,00 Mailer what the Vole of the House my be whether for of against the amendments before us it does not decide the question should uie resolutions As they came from the Senate be passed by his House unanimously it would not in my opinion prevent a modification nod alteration in Ibe present Revenue jaw bul As the question is before us it is right in should be decided and i for one am willing to Lake whatever share of responsibility May rest upon myself in deciding this question now i shall Vole in the first place for the amendment of the gentleman from Bradford. Why because i believe my is Correct because l believe that in the language of that Resolution the Tariff Law of 18-12 is unequal is unjust and that it is partial in us some interests at the expense of oth ers that brings us to the question i know sir in is a very difficult thing Load just the Revenue Laws no Aslo operate equally on All , Anil upon All Sec Lions i know the quest on has occupied the Lime and Ibe attention of the Ablest men in this Union in attempting Solo adjust the Revenue Laws As to effect All in the same manner 1 repeat that it is a Ijnar lion which Baa agn aled the whole Union and which threatened to destroy us Unity break asunder Liose Bonds which 1 Trust May never be severed. I deem la proper Here to deny the charge which has been made on ibis floor against those who Are in favor of the amendments of Ibe gentleman from Bradford we have been charged web being lit favor of Southern principles. We Bare been charged with being opposed to the interests of ibis being anti Penn Stu Anian in feeling i deny the charge come from what Quarter it May i claim to be a. Pennsylvanian i am a Penn Sylv Man by birth i am a pennsylvanian by education and every feeling i have la in favor of a in Sylvania i rejoice in her Prosperity and or Juru Over her adversity and shall it be said because we Are not willing to go for the Tariff of 1812 with All us Imper i fictions thai we ate anti be Nav iranian in i feeling another threat if held out that if any attempt is made to the act of i 1s13, that we Are at once ruined and the interests of Pennsylvania Are destroyed is of i or chairman is True it is to say so it is easy for gentlemen to Rise in their places and proc aim it but if it be True it is also Irmo that gentlemen who represent this state and other states of this Union Al Washington Are totally unfit to represent their several unfit to legislate on a subject which by the Constitution is placed within their province and their exclusive jul Ris fiction and he same objection May be made a Seneier an attempt is made to Correct ony in i will say that so far from Bein a a free Trade Man 1 us to a cer Tain extent in Lavor of the protective policy but the difference Between myself and other gentlemen on his door is Hal whilst i Wou cd make Revenue he principal Stan Dard in adjusting the Revenue Laws they would make Protection the principal and Rev Enue the incident i hold that whenever a Banff so Lair upon any article Aalo amount to a prohibition of Bat article that the Tariff if per in Junt oppressive and partial in its provisions and ought to be modified the prohibitory policy is not the policy of this state of of any other state it is not the policy of the democratic parly of Pennsyl Vania any More than it is of so Tajh Carolina or the Whit of Georgia the Revenue Laws should be so adjusted As to protect the Amer ican manufacturer so far that he should real ize a fair fur rns investment but sir i would go no further i would not pro Hibit the article but allow the Market to be open to reasonable foreign Corn petition. I propose to examine the Tariff Law of 1842 it May be Well for m to inquire what the circumstances were which the prese a Tariff Law was enacted How did it become the Law of the land in such a manner a to warrant Ibe Assumption Ibal it was to re main the permanent policy of tha country was it the intention of any demo Cul in at to led in favor of that act or did they sup Pofi at the time the Law was passed that it a to be permanent and not to be modified or altered on the contrary it was expire sly stated by senators Buchanan Wright and others that it was grossly defective should soon be changed or.
