The New U. S. Tariff.

--The Morrill tariff is creating much dissatisfaction abroad. The Paris Moniteur, speaking of its provisions, says:

‘ "This retrograde reform has been very badly received in England, and will be no better liked in France; for our silks, which used to pay nineteen per cent., will pay a tax varying from twenty to thirty per cent., and our wines, taxed at thirty per cent., will be assessed at 33½ per cent., If a reconciliation should be effected in the United States, which does not yet appear to be beyond hope, it is proper to surmise that the abolition of this tariff will be one of the compromise clauses obtained by the South. If the Union be not re-established, the programme of free trade proclaimed by the South will open to our trade and agriculture a road to fruitful intercourse and large returns.
