Origin of Article: Louisville JournalFull Text of Article:National Debt
Though the manufacturers of the North are rapidly making money, yet they are clamoring for the imposition of high tariffs to protect them. If the North impose high tariff, the people of the South should avail themselves of the benefits of them by going to work to establish factories of all kinds. The Louisville Journal wisely suggests that the best way to attack the manufacturers is to imitate them, and establish manufactories of our own. If they grow rich by manufacturing, we can do the same. If they have the advantage of a greater populations, they got the population by establishing manufactories, and the workmen came. They would come to us of the South for a similar reason. Slavery, which formerly kept them away, exists no longer, and if we furnish them congenial occupation, and hold out to them the prospect of competence, they will come. If New England has power to keep up a tariff upon domestic manufacturers, we can get the benefit of it by establishing manufactories of the articles taxed. This is the surest kind of protection.
