The minority report IB oignad by
Senator Voat and Rjpreaentatiros
McEano and Ooz. The report de
clarer that the war which began in
1801 waa not in any aaziso tha cause
of the a.nnmorsial phenomana under
consideration. It wai aooelorited by
the COUIBB of events which , if the cir
cumstances existing from 1855 to 1861
had continued , would htvo bon inev
itable oven hid there been no war. It
would ba a'great miatako to infer ( is
many thus have glvon the testimony
baforj j ) int cointuttsea oaem to Infer )
N that if ull obatruotlous and barduiii
upon the iujtrumantatity of no mujh
of the commerce of the United States
a ) purtaitm to the ocean were removed ,
wo should bj a iiu at no distant d.iy
a great ship building and ship us'ng
nation. Such a result is impossible.
If all obitrustioas were removed , and
if the s vi of the moat improved
pattern and modern construction and
fully equipped were aiven us and
placed aa fro a gifts at our wharvoi , it
is doubtful if our ocean cominsnip and
shipping wonld be materially relieved
and developed , One reason of a general -
oral nature against auch a revival ia
the preoccupation of our people In
ether more attractive and ramunarn-
tlvo omploymenla. It ia not likely
that ary gruit iaoroajo or ravival of
our ahip-buildiog and shipping inter-
esta will tuko plaoo until wa have
rofcbod a maximum production in our
lines of labor , especially in ngrioul
turo. When that point ia
reached and our energies are
devoted to oth'jr pursuita the
ocean may have ita olden attrao.ion
atni remuneration for ouv people.
Another more practical and tangible

he who will not sell cinnot buy.
Again , shipi have baon truly called

The tnerahnnt mirtna languishes for
lack of libjrty. Its revival must oomu
from onlarrfement ot our freedom.
The minority , whllo o > ncurring with
the report as to measures reported by
the committee , dpairo also to present
two other propositions ; firat , for ad
mission tree of duty of all materials
finished and perfected and ready to b )
put together in a ship , and bocond ,
forfreo admfasion to American registry
of ships built abroad.
