eradi cating this evil out of In making a proper judgement of this affair of fo general we mult always keep it in our that the natural channel of this trade that t raw fugars mould be dirsclly feld to the refiner by the While this trade continued to be car ried on in this the public had nothing to com plain and fugars in general were lold almoft forty per cheaper than The refiners were then men ef property and who fcorned unfair But the monopolizing purchafers of fugars have entirely perverted this branch of commerce from its natural into a new and unnatural mode of They have alfo introduced

pernicious trade of forellalling in this branch commerce was then in its infancy But fince that time the practiceof monopolizing has apace in this branch of bufinefs that I believe I can name one in

iiftiair of feven is equally without taking in any other per no two things in nature are more different in value and to the pofTeffor a more different income or whether that income is confi dered as coniilting in fplendor or or any other fbiid The diftinguifliing value of moft we ail arifes from their difFerenr Hardly confiding of the number of acres differ more in value from each other than two houfis of the fame number of windows in diffe ent fitua A houfe of feven or ten windows or n one hundred yards of the Exdiange of s as if not wore different in value from a of feven or ten windows in fome parts of as the richeft field of feven or ten acres in differs in value from the worft ield ofthe fame extent in Norfolk or And in the fame town or nay in the aroe quarter of the fame a different

num jer of to the indelible difgrace of our na tional Can any abfurdity be than to collect for the ufe of the public the fame duties from objects of fo very different values To plan tlis raifmg of taxes in this manner is to plan the eftabiifiiment of iniquity by a law and to plan the of a tax of this fort in to plan the enlargement of To this uijexceptionable argument againfl the tax on or an extenfion of i hat it may pro bably be that the fums levied by this tax sire fo that neither the inequalities above taken notice nor any other that maybe merit confideration that if every circumftance was in this cafe to be minutely the trouble and expence of reducing all thofe differences to a nice equation would exceed the profits accruing to the public from the tax in queftion for it orren hap that houfes of the fame number of adjoining to each differ greatly in va lue from each efpecially if one of them fronts a great f tree tor an acciftomed and the Other ftands in amoreretired fecreted frjm view and Opportunities of commerce that thofe va of circumftances which alter the value of houfes of the fa menumber of both in town and country are fo that it is hardly pof frble to pay a juft attemion to them and ihat for this reafon becaufe there is no other way of elud ing an infinity ef contefls which never could be The moft eligible method in this is that already fixed which is to compel the fame payment from all houfes of the fame number of win after an allowance of fome of fsnall diisenfions with fewwindows for tfee habitation of he A very eancifeanfweiy inbehalf of an in jurioiis doth not the whole of this fine ftory amount to this plain That the injuftice obfervablein planning this ought to be either becaufe the though ge yet very little hurts each or be caufe it would take a great deal of trouble to rectify it And is not that argument eafily refuted Have thofewho reafon in this manner forgot that the obfervation of the invariable laws of juftice is never to be neglected on any account whatever That the correction of general iniquity can in arry be confidered as an unimportant objcfl That the diftribution of jufiice is the as well as the main end of Government That every Govern where this great objeft of fbciety is deviates into tyranny That the profpefl of obtain ing one common protection for on pay ment of taxes proportioned to its value iathe of the is the great enducement which en gages mankind to fubmit to be ruled by their and that to difappoint this hope is a moft open attack an the fafety of mankind in an nfTociated Who has a legal power to compel fubmimon to injuftice The law of nations forbids iniquity of every fort and certain I that no man is authorifed by any exprefsly revealed or implied in to commit Ariglit to do wrong
