An X on th e wrapper of tUis p a p er aigmfles that tbe sabecription baa ex­ pired, and unlew renewed T h i R ay will be diacontinned. TO OUB BSADEBS. I Le editorial and bnaioeea m auage- luent of T eb K ay will be under the '' • I anperriHon and contrCM of the c.:. arity PablU b ing Ajaocialiou of I'r N . Y-, and will be conducted X >ioly in tba Intereits of the Kuigbts oi I. ,Dor. Oorreepondence Is solicited, but tJC management of T b i R at is not |<ouible for the new s expressed bj I -.xyninbaton. Jam es J . Reilly, bum- ncas m anager of T b j R at , is the onb person antborised to collect moniee tor th is paper. T bb largest re a il store in 'I.c L'niUd States h a s just been opened in Brooklyn. It is stocked in a curious way. A Poitou street oacdy man eelh the candy, a Bro-<d- way (New Y o rk) J.ipaneso coucetn eellh the bric-a-hric, a New York shoe hou>e sells the abocA and so it go a. The owners o f the sV re sell notliiug Imt the dry goods, and the r e - t of the c<.'Oceru is made np of two score separs'e establish ments, which pay a oommiraion or rental to the owners T hbbs is quite a fuss made about the tariff those d>jA and while k II agree (to diaagrie) that there ebonld l>e aometbinc doue to rednee the sorplua in ibetrrasnry by resrrauging the tariff on im p o rts, or reducing the internal rercnaA none ao far ban offered a good plan by w hich to redoee the tax on our own people with, ont eetablUbitig some system w h ’cb will in the end w ork to our detrimt-nt. The etatesmea of the two great political par­ ties hare all, or nearly all, bad th e n say on the matier, and yet none of them seem to have bit upon a plan tbai strikes the public forcibly as the proper remedy. Some of the members of th e Democratic p a rtrfiiT o r a moderate reduction of the tariff • n lom g n go da coming into this oountry a n d S' me a redne ion on internal taxation, while some of them favor the total a b olition of the tariff. The Re­ publican party leaders favorlhe reduction of the iuiernal U x atiou, but all agree th a t there should not be any reduction oi the tax on Importatiooa from forei,;u countries. Now before off-ring w h at 1 ooosider a good plan l<y which to reduce th e revenue, s n l a t the aame time red ice the furplus in the treasory, I wish to call your atleotioo and also the a ttention ol yonr readers to the very peculiar p-ople that are firiiuiD g every nerve to f-rmu late some judicious tariff regiilatioas for the b n ietit Ot the people (i. e., tbem - aeltee). A. B . H ew itt wants the tariff doubled OD ucSnisbed iroo, and lo would 1 if I was an iron manufacturer, but I do not think It fair for him to aek th a t all tariff b e taken off ores a nd pig Iron becan<e be wiahee to get itobeeper, and regard- lees o f the inuresta of oar miners a n d all others in blast furnaoew and other branebee of the raw iron industry. Tha sugar growers and refiners want h igh tar­ iff on their goods, and they ere ouly as a drop in the bucket'as compared with the rest o f th e population, who will have to pay the freight by buying bigb-prioed sugar just to eniicb the few who own plautmioDS a nd refineries. T h ere is one other parly I w ill call yemr a tieutm n to, wbo is a t pn a e n i whimog alioul ibe great injury that is being done the peop’e of our own c ity by tb e im portation into this coontiy o f foreign-m sde collars.
