Dear »r—I received yours oftho '28th ult. with a sam* pie of Uie "Essay on Agriculture"—1 now double mjr former order, and request you to send me one thousand copies. I have the pleasure to say, with confidence, that the "American system," which you so ably advocate, is gaining ground rapidly in North Carolina. But a few years ago, I stood almost alone in this part of the state, as the friend of domestic manufactures:—now I know many gentlemen of considerable influence, who are strenuous advocates for protective duties. I think the day is rapidly approaching when the south will no longer move hi "Macedonian phalanx"against tho centre, the east, the north and the west, in opposition to protective duties. North Carolina would reap more benefit from one large manufacturing establishment,than from all the gold mines- which will ever be discovered in her sod. The manufacture of bricks for the forts at Boiqne Point, and Oak island, will circulate about two hundred thousand (2!J0,000) dollars on the sea-board of North Carolina— Here is occular demonstration of the benefits of the system. These manufacturing establishments give profitable employment to more than three hundred people. The ship-carpenters are employed in building vessels to transport them—these vessels require sails, iron work, cordage, See. Carpenters are employed to make houses, sheds, tables, brick-moulds, &c boatmen are employed in transporting them to the forts—nil is life and activity- all is supported by the manufacture of t'tau. The seaboard of North Carolina is well adapted to the manufacture of salt, equal to St. L'bes or Isle of May. A very considerable quantity is now made near Wilmington and Beaufort These manufactories would, no doubt, be greatly extended, was not the repeal of the duty on imported salt yearly agitated in congress. Some honorable member, anxious to make a speech, and gain a mushroom popularity in his neighborhood, gets up and moves for a repeal of the duties on imported salt. He particularly laments the hard lot of his constituents, who probably buy each one bushel of salt per annum, on which they pay twenty-five cents to the Crated States. This is an inlollerabic burthen—his poor constituents must have salt, free of duty, to put into their cakes and dumpjingai The hon. gentleman does not consider how many poor people are employed, profitably, in the establishments, carrying on the manufacture* of salt. It is an incontrovertible fact, that, where sail-works are established, salt has sold, for a long time, at least twenty-five per cent, lower than it did previous to the establishment of facts and to demand proof. Tt is on this ground that I these manufactories. During tl.e war, when our enemies I •-liave always desired to meet our opponents; but in- • teitl of argument with ns anil descending lo particulars ' ".« truth might he made manifest, they either throw -t fulmination* as "plentiful as blackberries," or so **l in general* that it is impossible to grapple with ^"•u. This practice will do for a while—so long as ftftr- \ local or political, can be brought to bear upon the wjeet—but there are times when men's heads are cool -"•I iliserimifiating; anil then truth, mildly and modestly >'*scd upon them, is kindly received, and they wonder ■tdie delusion which has prevailed over their minds— ; "■"»Tukes and misapprehensions are removed, and the I >*'':»'.ant discovery made that there is less difference of : principle between them and their opponents than they ould not let us have salt, it sold at the eoormtua price of from 5 to IU dollars per bushel, in North Caroliua, and many other parts of the United States. I intend to forward you all the statistical facts, on this, and other subjects, which I can possibly collect, before the session of die next congress. Let the assembled .v.s.'om ol the nation have all the light which it is practicable to concentrate at the capitol, before they decide the momentous question which will then come before them.
