[Wheeling (VA): Curtis, Printer, 1827]. 16p. Disbound. Caption title as issued. First leaf has a corner fox blotch and a small tear at blank lower corner, else scattered mild foxing. A scarce and interesting plea for federal protection from ruinous foreign competition in the production and sale of agricultural products. Absent tariffs, "the greatest and most important branch of business, the agricultural, will fail to produce a reasonable profit to land owners and those who till the soil; and a comparative state of want, (in the present condition of society,) become the portion of this chosen and peculiarly valuable people-- the free cultivators of their own lands-- the best depository of the morals, the rights and the liberty of their country-- the class which must mainly defend our institutions at arms." This call for federal intervention to protect the idealized Jeffersonian yeoman was at odds with the free-trade position of much of the South, which opposed the protectionist lobbies of northern manufacturers. In good condition.

John Covode (1808-1871), was a member of Congress from Pennsylvania, who on March 5th, 1860 introduced a resolution in Congress to appoint a committee of five congressmen to a broad investigation of the Buchanan administration for alleged corruption. The investigation centered on "public buildings and public works," namely "abuses" at the Chicago post office and the Philadelphia Navy Yard and an inquiry into the use of "money, patronage, or other improper means" to make Kansas a slave state, and to "coerce elections" in Pennsylvania. The concluding document was an embarrassment to the administration.
