taiii , as they attained empire , all ex
acted heavy tribute from their de
pendencies in taxation , rents , in
terest , and profits of commerce ; but
our political and commercial rulers
generously share their profits with
their foreign customers , in order the
more securely to fleece their own
This state of things cannot long
continue. If it is not ended by
abolishing tariff laws which have
now become so hurtful , a tremendous
deus business and financial panic ,
coupled with a political deluge , will
end it amid wide-spread disaster.
In the coming contest for commer
cial supremacy we shall need all our
strength , and must avail ourselves of
every possible advantage. Our in-
vasioii'Of the world's markets is forc
ing other countries to copy our in
ventions and machinery , educate
their artisans , and adopt our im
proved methods of organization and
production on a large scale. Our
protection policy , by depriving them
of access to our markets , only makes
it the more necessary to hold their
trade in other markets , and thus in
tensifies the competition we must encounter -
counter there. To successfully moot
this competition , it is indispensable
that our people should have the right
to gather their supplies from the
four quarters of the globe wherever
they may be had best and cheapest ,
and to market their products whore-
over most in demand , absolutely free
from the strait-jacket of protection.
Entering upon a new realm , America
must discard the swaddling-clothes
and adopt a policy suitable to the
new conditions and worthy of her
aspirations. No cheese-paring reci
procity will answer. She must
wholly throw aside .her defensive
armor so obsolete and cumbrous , and ,
under the banner of free trade ,
fight berserk , like our Viking an

The following letter on catalpas.
from the secretary of the Interna
tional Society of Arboriculture , will
bo of interest to all friends of that
handsome and useful tree. Mr.
Brown is now in New Orleans ,
where ho is putting in 110,000 catal
pas for the Illinois Central railroad :
"Prepare the ground by plow and
harrow , as for a garden ; make shal
low and broad furrows , three feet
apart ; sow the seed in these drills ,
about twenty-five seed to a foot or
row ; cover very slightly as fast as
the seed are strewn , else wind will
scatter them. The seed cannot push
their way through much more than
one-quarter inch of soil ; sandy soil is
best. Preferably , nearly , level laud
is to bo selected. Keep down all
grass and weeds from the start. If
once choked with either , it will bo
very difficult to cultivate the young
seedling. Hoe the young plants ; af
ter the second pair of leaves appear ,
they will be quite hardy and may bo
plowed. If very strong growth is
desired the first year , give greater
room by sowing loss seed in the
rows , while if for transportation long
distances small plants are desirable ,
strew seed more thickly. An early
start in spring is desirable , plant as
soon as ground can be worked well.
In autumn , after frost has cut the
leaves , take up the trees , tie in
bundles of one hundred and heel
them in that is , bury them in the
ground to remain until spring , in a
location free from standing water.
Never plant in autumn where frost
is liable to heave them out.
When planting in forest , use one
season's growth of trees ; set them
about 8 by 8 feet , or (580 trees per
acre , and within eight or ton years ,
thin to 10 by 16 feet , or 170 trees per
acre. Circumstances may require a
different method of planting , in
which one's judgment must be used.
By all means do not crowd them.
At New Orleans I am planting in
an old sugar plantation , the old cane
rowsTbeiug seven foot apart. Hence
I'set ] the trees eight feet ap"art in
the ] row , and take only alternate
rows , fourteen feet. Often farmers
wish o plant trees in single rows
about the fence lines. Tins ma.y be
done'but it is far better to have the
trees'in a solid forest.
