Wi: have recently noticed several
critb:i-ms upon Mr. Paruell, the
acknowledged leader of the Irih
cau-e in the English parliament by
journals who either did not understand
the man and his caue, or clso their
bia-5 and prejudices against tho Irish
cause were so great ihcy could not dis
cuss the issue presented dispassionately;
be this as it may, Mr. Parnell has made
a record in the English Parliament
which his friends need not be ashamed,
of and which his enemies cannot oblitor
ate. He has been a consistent, straight
forward advocate of the commonest
riirhta a . people under any form of
civilized government ure entitled to.
He is not now, nor never has been, an
advocate of separation from the Eng

Mr. Comely I wish you may; but
what do you want exactly?
Mr. Parnell A parliament of our

natural result liberty. You had bet

the English have?
Mr. Parnell We would not cease to
be subjects oj tlie United Kingdom.
The Queen would be our Queen; she
would be tlie link that would attach
Ireland to Great Ilritain. We would
consent even to be coverneu by a
Viceroy, provided there were no excep
tional laws, and that the Viceroy had
no more rights, no more arbitrary
powers over us than Queen Victoria has
over her English or bcotcli subjects.

ports are taxed more heavily there than
here. But the quantities of these ar
ticles imported into tho United States
are so much smaller than the quanti

even if our duties were as high as the
British duties, the amount of revenue

The following we clip fiom a cor
respondent of the Liacolu Journal
from Fail bury, Jefferson county:
A good deal of iuterest is mani

niouth and & Southwestern railroad.

Denver Iin9 of tlie B. & M. was built
we were promised that the road should
pass through Fairbury if we should
give the company bonds. The bonds
were voted, but lor some inscru
table reason the road made a crossing
six miles below us and left us in nearly
as bad a plight as before. A railroad
is needed on the line tlie v. S. W .
proposes to build, and we have strong
hopes that one will soon be built there."
The HfIuald can assure its readers
that this correspondent voices the sen
timents of the people along the. entire
route of the proposed Plattsmouth
and Southwestern railroad.
Tiie FaTTs City Journal does not
often get off of its base, but iu its com
ments on our Nebraska courts, wo are
surprised at Bro. Pepoon's course of
reasoning, and can only account for
his exceatricjogic upon the theory that
he has been exposed, and caught the
disease from the Gazette-Journal, of
Hastings. The Falls City Journal says:
"These reversals by the Supreme court
merely show that the Supreme judges
disagree with the District jirtlges in re
gard to the construction to be givcu to
statutes and upon these points any
two lawyers are likely to disagree."
This is a remarkable conclusion, and of
itself ought down any Supreme court
in the land. The same objection ob

The following article from the
G obe-Demo'Tat is well worthy the
per.--.ual of all persons interested in
the ?o-ca'le t tariff issue:
ENOLIi-n AND A2IEKICAN TARIFFS.
The British government has during
the l ist ten years raised Ju-;- al out
?100.uou,000 of revenue ann rally by
duties on imports. Oar government
derived 8200,000,000 from customs last
year, 8108.000,000 in 1831, $186,000,
00o in 1S80, and an average amount of
about 8l40.o00,000 during each of the
five years next preceding 1880.
Whether wo have a tariff for revenue
only, or one for protection only, or one
for revenue with incidental protec
tion, or one for protection with inci
dental revenue, we shall for many
years to come be oblidged to collect
upon imports much loss than $200,
000,000 per annum. It is obvious
therefore, that a great deal of the talk
of the Iroquois clubs and the Henry
Wattersons about free trade is all
humbug; and it is equally obvious
that some of the friends of protection
are needlessly alarmed over the ex
pected advent of a "free trade Con
For, though the adoption again at
some future day of a strictly revenue
tariff is conceivable however un
likely it is to happen for many years
the exigencies of the country are
certain to be such that considerable
protection must continue to be af
forded to various industries. It is
impossible to collect all the revenue
that must be paid, upon articles not
produced in this couutry. Tea, coffee
aud sugar apart, there are not suffi
cient importations of articles produced
abroad exclusively, or almost exclus
ively, to yield, whether at a high or a
low rate, anything like "the total
amount of revenue from imports that
must be had.
A tariff for revenue mu3t afford in
cidental protection, because, in older
to yield the n-eded amouut of revenue
duties must bd imojjjd 0:1 ta my im
ported art icles such as are also pro
duced in this ouatiy. Tiu republi
can party, as we uudv.rsliinJ t.'i-s cise,
advocates not a tariff for 1.10 io:ioly,
but a tariff for reveuu-j with inci lea
tal protection. If $203,0 Jtf.OJJ ii to be
collected a inu ily, t ie oh-'t.ic ; for
an honest diffvrr't nj of o;:-ii;i lain
relation, t:i the. a lj 13111 ml of duties
and the stdooti i if nl litil-a t i bj
given incidental pro'-soUou. Th? ne
cessity for projection cao not be de
nied, however vehemently its pro
priety may be declaimed against by
professors of pure economies.
A little examination, cf the British
tariff will bring to light the fact that
3200,000.000 can net be collected iu
this country by duties on imports
without giving much protection to
home industry. In raising 8100,000,-
ta,riff JpetLjiritain ceis $42,
The British rates are presumably ad
justed to produce the maximum amount
of revenue. If our rates were the same,
the quantities imported remaining un
changed, we should derive, say, $ 11,-
00'7K)0 fro n tobacvo, $1(),')U0XX) from
t-, " ( 0.),() )0 from -pirits. and $2,750,-
000 from wines Thesis iten
make a total of MJoO.OOO-
The above estimates, though
rough, are close enough to show that
while Great Britain raises 90 per cent
of her customs revenue from four com
modities, the same rates applied in
this country to the same commodities
would produce not 15 per cent of our
There is, moreover, no prospect of
the reimposition of a duty on tea or
coffee. Both parties appear to be com
mitted to the "free breakfast table'
idea though, by the way, both parties
support the tax on sugar, which is
more important as an article of fcod
than tea and coffee are together with
several other things thrown in. The
point we wish to make is that there is
no danger of the adoption of the Brit
ish free trade system here, bscause it
would bankrupt the treasury. It is
true our tariff might be so adjusted as
to produce more revenue and give le: s
protection than at present; 1 ut, what
ever the adjustment, it must resemble
the present tariff much more closely
than the British system, and must give
no small amount of protection to many
