Tariff policy was placed in the hands of Congress, not only to ensure an equitable system of taxation but as a means of uniting the disparate regions of the former thirteen colonies into a large and viable free-trade area with power to promote American foreign policy aims.
Tariffs began to rise as early as 1861, as the southern coalition exited Congress, leaving the Republican Party, long a supporter of protectionism, in control of the presidency and at least one house of Congress for most of the period until 1913.

 Niles and the New South

Although the first reaction to the tariff of 1816 was muted, tariff proposals of the 1820s and '30s elicited wild outrage.In outline, the argument ran something like this: Many Southerners believed nothing could be manufactured in the plantation system, and they feared a diversion of capital to Northern factories.
He supported the sugar tariff -- not as a way to protect planters, but rather "as a means of advancing the prosperity of the United States." 58One only has to open a copy of the Register to find examples of Niles conciliatory and moderate tone on the tariff question in the 1820 - 1828 period.

 USA-Presidents.Info - Andrew Jackson
High tariffs (the " Tariff of Abominations ") on imports of common goods were seen by many in Southern colonies as unfairly benefiting Northern merchants and industrial entrepreneurs at the expense of those who had to buy the goods subject to the tariffs, mostly Southern farmers.
Although Jackson sympathized with the Southern interpretation of the tariff debate, he was also a strong supporter of federalism (in the sense of supporting a strong union with considerable powers for the central government) and attempted to face Calhoun down over the issue, which developed into a bitter rivalry between the two men.
The crisis was resolved in 1833 with a compromise settlement which, by substantially lowering the tariffs, hinted that the central government considered itself weak in dealing with determined opposition by an individual state.

This tariff was a response to the earlier tariffs of 1828 and 1832 designed to pacify the tensions growing in South Carolina over the issue of nullification.
Calhoun, staunchly Democratic and lauded opposition of Henry Clay on many measures was convinced to vote for this measure and in so doing, by virtue of his influence, allowed for the quick remediation of the South Carolina crisis and the ultimate result was the repealment of the nullification ordinance.
It is also important to note that Clay’s compromise tariff is an adaptation of an earlier proposal put forth by Verplanck but the earlier bill did not carry the weight of Clay and Calhoun’s influence so it was unsuccessful.
