"Edited by the author of The Olive Branch," this periodical was "A weekly, published as a vehicle for the regular promulgation of arguments in favor of legislation to promote national industry and diminish the negative American trade balance" [Lomazow]. The first issue is dated January 24, and the final one May 1, 1824. The periodical is devoted to advancing Carey's program for protecting American industries from foreign competition in order to foster their growth and create home markets for their products. Carey zealously defends his views and is impatient with those of Southern free-trade advocates.
