What was the position of the Southern states on the issue of tariffs?

The Southerners were feared that Great Britain might place its own tariffs on agricultural products grown in the South, and the Southerners argued that tariffs would increase the cost of manufactured goods that they bought from European nations.
The Southern states had fewer citizen than the Northern states and the Southerners were afraid that they would be a minority in Congress. So the Southerners thought that they might have less power in the new national government to decide on the issues on the trade, so Framers that came from the Southern states opposed to giving the national government power to regulate trades.
