The speech of General Sherman to
the Society of the Army of the Ten

frank. Dogmatic an J erratic as he
is, his iv. in J is incisive and alert, and
he is too arder.t and sincere to trim
or prcva-riea'ta. If any body, there
fore, has regarded Genera! Sherman
as o. possible successor of General

The general average is 190 acres to

involving a capital of hundreds of
millions, and underlying the prospcri-
ioan agriculture in a de-
appreciated by farmers ,
has been saved from
annihilation bv the action
in i lacirg a duty upon
the foreign article equivalent to the
internal taxatkn endured by the
wool growers, though not until the
commercial class, taking advantage of
the tardy progress of the measure,
had inflicted a heavy blow in the in-
, -i r -t -i.
trounction of more woolen goods in a
single year than were imported in
three years ( f the hjle war. It is to
be hoped that a premium will never
agim be given to a foreign produc
tion, either of wool or woolens, by im
posing a higher tax upon American
than upon foreign wool-growers, and
that the present moderate, and har
monious adjustment, barely saving
the two classes of producers from loss,
and consumers from becoming the
ultimate prey of foreign monopolists,
may long be undisturbed, even by
the th'-eat of agitation of repeal.
