PROTECTION. - Among the beauties of the present tariff and revenue system is the following: "Repairs of vessels, 50 per cent." If an American vessel receives injury on a foreign voyage, and gets herself repaired in a foreign port to the amount of $100 gold, she must pay $50 gold to the the Collector of Customs in the next American port she enters, because, forsooth, she is importing "pauper labor," or something of that sort, in contravention of the great principle of protection to home industry.
