this which now unhappily prefides in Ever fmce the late happy treaty of peace put an end to the ra vages of the fword in thefe raerrilefs de ftroyers of the have exerted their united force over every ufeful branch mercein a moft unexampled By their per nicious we have loft the foreign corn and our foreign fugar trade lies bleeding of the wounds inflicted by teir voracious Naught can fatiate the hunger of thefe cormorants no en treaties can prevail on them to flop their relentlefs They deny food to the fugar to and plunder this kingdom without To the Ihame of they find every where too many defenders and even among your there are fome to be found who have fo far bid adieu to the feelings of as to attempt in public to palliate cruelties which nvritthe laft Among thefe of I mult reckon

were for per brought 40 or by the hun dred and that this rife in the price of fugars was owing to and not to Inert crops hi the Weft is becaufe our iftands always groduce more than fufficient tor home confumption and it is certain that wehave had no foreign trade during thefe if Sirj the Weft Indies always producemore than enongh to ferve our and there was then alfo on hand a Urge refidue of what our while we had no foreign trade in fugars It is plain could not be owing to real fcarcity in that for there was more thanenough in the markets for home confumption and is as that an artificial created by was the only pof fible caufe of the then raifed prices of No other caufe could be productive of this effect while there was enough for confumption till the enfuing crop would bring a new fays fmce the crop in was it wnsbat juft that the planter fhouidreceive an advanced price for his order to make up for the deficiency in the Here is a new fort ot confifts in fleecing the public for the fuke of tie opulent and extravagant planter of the fugar cane And was this motive J believe it would bs hard to make that our great monopolifc who purchafeth one and fome fry a third of the fugars that are imported at this would employ his magazines far hoarding fu in order to create a fcarcity in the that the Weft India planter plight have the benefit of the advanced prices arifirig from this artificial Neman who knows any thing of raonopoliits will give credit to fuch a But if it was that the planter was to receive this who conftituted our monopolifts judges between the public and the planters of the fugar cane We all know that their and that profusion fo perceivable in the ceconomy of thefe gentlemen of the Torrid are inconteftable proofs that bufmets of fagar planting is attended with fufhcient to enable them to bear the cafual lofs of a fcanty crop without taxing this in order to gorge their The regular and fair way of trade that every commodity fliould bear a price

polizing in the fugar We have fugar land enough in the Weft enough I mean to ferve and ail the nations of Europe who have no plantations in the Torrid Zone ana if engrrlfing could be banimed out of
