An unusual magazine, published from 1869 through 1872, devoted to the themes of commerce and protectionism. The first article explains "Why Irishmen should vote for Protection," reminding that 'free trade' means "British free trade;" and argues that even Adam Smith would support a policy of protection for the U.S. Subsequent issues elaborate, and assert "The interest of the South in Protection," as well as that of the West and "the colored man."
