3018. FISHERIES, Protection of.—[continued].

The ex parte regulations
which the English have begun for mounting
their navigation on the ruins of ours, can only
be opposed by counter regulations on our
part. And the loss of seamen, the natural
consequence of lost and obstructed markets
for our fish and oil, calls in the first place,
for serious and timely attention. It will be
too late when the seaman shall have changed
his vocation, or gone over to another interest.
If we cannot recover and secure for
him these important branches of employment,
it behooves us to replace them by
others equivalent.—
