Senate, February 27, 1832. of Pennsylvania--a life-long Democrat and anti-Abolitionist, cautious, conservative, conciliatory — replying to one of Mr. Hayne's eloquent and highwrought portrayals of the miserable state to which the South and her industry had been reduced by the Protective policy, forcibly and truthfully said:
What, Sir, is the cause of Southern distress?
Has any gentleman yet ventured to designate it?
I am neither willing nor competent to flatter.
To praise the honorable Senator from South Carolina would be
To add perfume to the violet — Wasteful and ridiculous excess.
But, if he has failed to discover the source of the evils he deplores, who can unfold it?
Amid the warm and indiscriminating denunciations with which he has assailed the policy of protecting domestic manufactures and native produce, he frankly avows that he would not deny that there are other causes, besides the Tariff, which have contributed to produce the evils which he has depicted.
