They are discouraged from a due expenditure of capital, not only fur the permanent improvement of land, but iveu for Ihe ordinary cniirse of husbiindry, by apprehensions.arising from the immense importalioiis of grain and wopl.

The Reviewers observe, " we would appeal lo his i''M.. Owen's) subei*-ti)inded cunsiileraiit>ii, whether the diviiliii,;r the country into districts or farms of a Ihunsjiid acres.e.irb, could improve the qilaliiy uf those iiiferinr soils, In nhuii we are obliged lo resort for the supply of fuoil." Tn n-hi'jii we most unequivocally reply', that a few years of spai/e labour would must certainly convert many of our int'i-iiur intw very good aiid )>roductive soils, while it cuutd scarrtly l*� applied tO any uf them, wiilioiit greatly impri.ving their qua. lity. But lb(? spirit in which the Reviewers have wiiiten, may begatiiered fiOm the following paragraph: *- We would enlreat him to explain in wh-,il way Ihe erection of villag.-�, in the form of parallelogram', could repeal those euici. ments against foreign trade, which are a disgrace to the .-ige we live in;" II has seldom fallen lo our lot to remark on a more flippant or a more misplaced sneer than this; is there any thing ridiculous in tha form chosen by Mr. Uwen for his projected villages? or has he had any part in enacting tbe statutes complained of?-Statutes, God knows! many of Ihem highly absijrd, and seriously injurious to the country, but most uf then) adopted at Ihe special instance and entreaty of our merchants and mauufactnrers.   . " For ourselves, we do not despair of our country," say Ihe Reviewers; "and we have no objection lo siaie \i-!ni, in our opinion, would restore llie kingdom 10 its onee fltui-rishiog (roiidilioo.   Give freedom to commerce, an^ tigbleii the pressure of taxation, aud we shall have 110 coniplaininii; ill our streets.  As commerce is always an exrhaMgi- of eqiii-valeals, a nation that will not buy cannot sell, anil resirii--. lions  upon import are prohibitory duties upon export ; on the contrary, the more we admit tbe productions of foreign countries, the more extensive become Iheir demand for onr commodities.   Let the absurd system of our Cum Laas bp cautiously aud gradually abolished, and allow the cheap agricultural pi'od,HCc of the Noiih of Europe, and of Ibe Continents of America and Africa to be freely inlrodurert, and we shall obtain an nnlimiled vent for our manufactures ; the profits of stock will be restored lo their level in oihrr counlrtes, and the coiisci|ueiil accumulation of capital will cause the increasing demand fur labour to bear a nearer propoi-.^on to Ihe increasing supply of labourers."   We ae, liltle (jespair of our country as the Reviewers possibly can do.   We conceive tliere is refpiisite only a liltle coinmo-i sense, and a liltle common honesty, in cuiiilnding llie ail'aits of this mighty kingdom, in order 10 carry it lu a degree tf power and of prosperity which it has m-ver yet appronebcil. But, allboogh we consider A perfectly fr&e TJIABE, sccoinpaniid by its necessary aliemlanls, a total abol)lio.r, of Ihe Excise and Cusloms, wilh their numerous officers, -ai a necessaiy step towards its ultimate prosperity, yet we consider it as one which ought to follow, but by no means to precede, a total change in our syslein of taxation,   Tho commercial peiiliun.s, which so nearly advocate the principle.s of the Edinburgh Kcview'eis as to make it not improbable that they origiuated wilh ihem, hold out as the grand pan.n. cea against all our evils-A free trade IS cotiN; but they would not disturb the existing duties, because they would not cripple the revenue. Yet we,011 the contrary, con �' ceive, that corn is the very last article to which this free trade ooghl to be extended; because the wages of labour, and Ihe profits of industry, are so heavily taxed in this country, that^. if our farmers had their lands free of reut, still they could by no means generally compete wilh the foreign corn, even in our own market; those only who occupied the superior qualities of land,could in sucb case continue Iheir cultivation; and' the inferior qualities,amouuting to perhaps half our territory, most lie relumed to grass.   But what must be Ihe nnavoid-able consequence of onr coming to depend for a large pro-. , portion of onr subsist'ehce on foreigners?   That the first year of general scarcity in those countries, from which've' commonly drew our most considerable supplies, would shot their exportation against us, and we most be subjerlfd ii> famine instead of scarcity.   Tbi.s is not a casualty uohkf-ly lu happen ; seldom have iwemy years passed away wiiliuut producing more than one ieaaon of general scarriiy I'vei-Europe, which has not unfreqiieotly extended (O North America.

But this is nut the ooly risk, we should run in adopting sucb an improvidejil sysiem ;. we have had recent experience that even " a Heaveo.Boni MiPisler" could not keep a small proportion of tti^ ports of Europe open to our-eoramerce,'aiid thai liis succ�*sut8 Wrra equally unsuccessful with regard lo those of America.
