8263. TARIFF, Excessive.—[continued].

Congress has done nothing
remarkable except the passing a tariff bill
by squeezing majorities, very revolting to a
great portion of the people of the States,
among whom it is believed it would not have
received a vote but of the manufacturers themselves.
It is considered as a levy on the labors
and efforts of the other classes of industry
to support that of manufactures, and I wish it
may not draw on our surplus, and produce
retaliatory impositions from other nations.—
To Richard Rush. Ford ed., x, 304.
(M. 1824)
