Of these, 6,278 were from Denmark,

due to heavy imports from Australia.
Tho Uoston Daily Advertiser, March 21,
has the following: "In the last three
.lays two Amerioan ships have arrived
in Boston from distant foreign ports.
On Monday the Great Admiral oame
into port from Melbourne with 5,840
bales of wool averaging 500 lbs. per bale,
and tbe Exporter from Melbourne with
5,800 bales. The value of these two
cargoes, duty paid, ia about $1,600,000,
and the duty on them at 11a per lb.
imount to $000,000. Three more cargoes
ire now on the way to Boston from Mel
bourne." These oargoes amount to
ibout 1,800 bales of 500 lbs. each, or
3,000,000 lbs.'. In addition to the forego
ing, there are 8 vessels en route to Bos
ton from foreign ports with onrgoes com
posed principally of wool, and these
immense supplies arrived and on pas
sage are chiefly responsible for the de
cline. Seven mouths ago these wools
would have fetched 71o uer lb. sooured,
while tbe price today is b'5o, causing a
loss to purchasers of 3 to 4c per lb.

All people are loyal to the principles

The partisan press are assiduously at

The peoplo's party is under great obli

The republican papers are proving with

"Whon, in the course of bntnau events,
it becomes necessary for one people to
dissolve the political bonds which have
united them to another aud to take for
themselves tbe fiee and equal itutions
among the nations of the earth to which
tho laws ot nature and nature's God en
title them, a decent respect for the rights
of others demands that they make known
the causes which impel them to the sep

action by the Amerioan people to day is
as great as it was when the ringing
quotation above were peuned. The oppres

no greater, no more unjust, ho more uu
indurable than is the oppression of the
triumphant plutocracy and its hirelings
upon the wealth producers of this last
decade of the nineteenth oentury.
These are no "piping times of peace."
