frmtfoloefs of the and other they raile fugar per cheaper than the Englifh planter can do and they find a vent for that article on the continent of North where they have and will continue to make a rapid pregrefs in the increafe of and the French would be enabled from that fource to encreafe and gather ftrength from year to to improve their rich uncultivated from whence to fupply the that in fifty years may probably be as numerous as Greyt and ftand fair for engrofiing that rhple which alone at this time employs more hipping than their and this at the expence of the Britilh who at prefent make more ftigars than Great Britain and Ireland can confume as will appear by iipnual exports onthecuftomhoufe books to which may be the cedel under en may within feven years make forty thoufand and thereby greatly augment the immenfe revenue produced by the Britifh Weft In dia iflafids but fhould the confumption of French fugars be permitted upon the would aflc where a vent can be found at a price to the expence the greateft part of our planters are at in carrying on their The natural confe quences the throwing up Anti and other of the Leeward as well as the poor wornout lands in whofe cultivation is carried en at fo heavy an Now the lofs of the former weuld be moft feverejy felt by theNorth as thofe lauds beingemployed for the cultivation of fugar lays thens under the unavoidable iwceflity of depending upon North America for all their mpplies of to a much larger extent than any other fettlement The large and opulent planter would be able to continue the and the fettling the rkh lands in the ceded iflands would go but could extend no farther for want of land but all the final 1 who from their number make by far the greateft quantity of would of necefiity be obliged to throw up their Now fuppofe the Englifh planter could nst cultivate fugar under three per when the French could do it at twenty would it he good policy to confume the which could not b obtained of thesn but for or materials they cannot do and for which they muft pay had they not goods to exchange in barter By which means to throw up the Britifh fugar iflands to aug ment the or te encourage the plan though under fo exorbitant a and by that raeans to keep and Mjpport the number of Shipping and augment the and encourage the confumption of Britifh manufactures the natu tural confequence attending the profperity of the Britiih To avoid therefore the confump of French big with evils not fo eafily feen at it is propofed that all Britifh plan tation imported into North mould have an affidavit made by the planter or of the place of its quantity and quality of with a certificate and clearance of the whole and on the default of fuch to deemed And that all fugar imported into North mould be reftricted to the ports of New and Charles Town there to be lodged under the Kings locks and bond to be given for payment of ten hillings per on mufcovado and fifteen killings per on clayed for what may be confumed and that is not exported in a li mited time after And even under this when the Englifh iflands happen to fall fliort their the French fugars will have a preference of the It will alfo be neceffary to prevent tbe fugar going otherwife the fmuggler would iatroduce French fugars into the ports as Biitifh At firft light this may appear a hard hip on trade but then when the number of ports at a mall from one end of the continent to the that every port carries on a trade to and from the Weft almoft every man of pro perty and credit being a as alfo the eafy conveyance by land vchen thole are duly attended the feeming hardfhips in a great mea fure The Americans as well as Great Bri tain and with of the high price of fugar but when the importance of the fugar colo nies from whence the annual imports into thiskingdom alone amount to two millions and arid the exports of manufactures con ftantly increafing in proportion to cultivation it is to be they are decreaiing ta America that there is no other method to lower the price of confiftent with the extenfion of the vending our or en creafe by encouraging the planter to the preference of fo important a for whoever can bring it cheapeft to will un doubtedly have the preference At the duty on molafies paid by is liable to many therefore there mould be Itrict regu in hating the cafks as is runi in Althougii the NorthAmericans deem an internal laid by any bu HS a direct breach of thfcir freedom as Britifh yet they never attempted difpute the right of Parliament lay a duty on their exports or as alfo to regulate their and upon which the very being and exift enceofthis kingdom asamaritime power immediately thereforeis of theutmoft importance to pre ferve this rightful in its fulled but at the fame time exert it lenity and moderation for hould it once be difputed or that rightful belonging to this would be transferred to though this power is yet hath it encreafe the cultivation t the utmoit extent of the unlettled lands in the ceded and the interior parts of the ifland of With refpect to the the extenfion of and perrniffion of importing the feveral will expand and open a field of cf which they them felves had no idea or conception and it is highly probable the exclufwe of will be more than fufficient to pay for all the being bulky and offmall value that they can find vend for but mould it prove other they have a recourfe to French as a re mittance for the manufactures of Great and that free of all duty or incumbrance And is h not highly reafonable thar they mould fub niit to a regulation fo effentially neceflary for eficou raging the fugar encreafe of confumption of Britifh and encreafe of revenue And is net this the moft likely period for the Americans being difpofed to receive it j ef pecially if the prefent duty of eighteen pence per j on Britifh plantation fugar be taken which raifes little more than per and never anfwered the end It would alfo be neceflary to fubject all imported into Great Britain from North to the Duty on to prevent French from j being introduced as Britifh plantation alfo all gars into to be firft landed in Great Brij tain and that the total prohibition of foreign rum I nto North America being continued and likevvife to Guernfey and where large quantities have been lately imported from to the great prejudice of the fugar and the revenue of this With refpect to it is the moft efFential manwfactoiy in America for carrying on the fifhery and African and being bulky employs a great number of veflels with a fmall capital j none of the Britifh iflands furnifh this article except and their annual produce doth not exceed 5000 or 6000 which is generally fold there at twelve pence per it being fought for as bal laft whereas the import from the French illands is near kogfheads at the price of feven pence fo that laying a high duty on it cannot affeft the Britifti The prefent duty of three pence per hath not raifed above per annum in North the chief part being fmuggled one penny per gallon on all would raife a of an nually And it is confefledly that the ex pence of landing fo bulky a commodity in obfcure baysand with the carriage from thence to the place and to market exclufive which is confiderable is not lefs on an average three farthings a gallon fo that it would be their intereft to pay the and import it into legal ports of and fale whereas two pence a gallen would be a tempta tion of to continue fmuggling But a ftronger motive arifes from the French ftl being open for the fifhery and African trade flvuld a duty be laid upon it in equal to the difference of labour there and in the Weft the French iflands would be enabled to underfell the and would fail to avail themfelves of fo beneficial a manufactory for the extenfion of their and thereby make fome amends for the lofs attending the lofs of their fettlements in North The prefent method of North American trade to is by carrying a load of rum on the where they ex change the greateft part thereof in baiter for Eu ropean to make an aflbrtment to purchase which are generally carried to and South Carolina fothat thequeftion I is not what moiafles can bear at but the al whether France or the colonies hall have i tj i u j been hamefully and too effectually evaded by fmug j therefore the only method now left for efta i blifhing that and fubordination to fo j lential for preferving law and funplicity of and eafy conftitutional taxes therefore the lay ing fmal taxes upon enumerated piect muft have had a very different tendency to the plan by laying hackles upon creating unneceflary and officers veiled wjiii or trifling to give interruptions to trade whereas a penny en as and their inereft to pay fo it is moft likely to raife a gioeno temptation to and bring them into a habit of fair andadopting right With refpect to the or rather prohibition of the confump tion of French it may he faid the temptation to continue and promote fmuggling remains but this is an article fo very eflential to promote the profperity of the fugar the encreafe of the and commerce and confumption of Britifh and the augmentation of the as to be well worthy the moft erious examination and attention of the It may be imprac ticable wholly to prevent the fmuggling French fugar into North America but it is likely to be done more effectually there than for the other goods in Great where it is moftly carried on in finall crafts and boats from ports near hand of a few hotfrs or days by well killed in every method to evade the law in North fmug gling muft be carried on by veflels of after a long voj age over the great Atlantic ocean there it is to be that a reafonable number properly ftationed by making fome cap they being would foon difcoursge the unfair finding the trade attended with lofs and would naturally drop it and when once the fpirit of fmuggling and a due obfervation of law and government the number of cutters might be leflened j Hot it may be that even this would prove inerfechial to prevent In that cafe t will be pru dent and requifite to take every poffible method of eitabling order and though artended witli the difagreeabie method of more
