TO THE RTOHT HONOURABLE F. J. ROBINSON, PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF TRADE. .Sir-There is no subject of deeper interest to the com-mnniiy than that on which I presume to address yuo, and' as it will very soon occupy tlie attention of both Houses of Parliament, I shall endeavour to lay before 'you, with as much brevity as possible, Ihe reasons why I think the pre-, sent Corn Law better adapted to the interest uf the farmer than any other which shall have for its basis a ayatem of protecting; dntiea. By the present law Ihe farmer has a monopoly of the bome-mdrbet till Ihe price of wheat shall have maintained SDs. on the average of the six weeks preceding any of the four periods of tlie year which govern the import. Expe. rience has shewn, that the price exceeds the import mark, be that 6&s. or 80s, it 'proceeds from a deficienry of the boow sappty, aod-ittDportalimi immediately takes place. It is of this the farmers complain; their monopoly is then broken through, and they canuot submit patiently to competition with the merchant. On examination, how. ever, it will be found, that in point of fact.they have no aubstantial ground of complaint, for instead of the import lowering the market, Ihe very reverse hasost was QIs. 6d. Here then is a clear proof that an import does not take place hut from necessity, and that then it has very little influence on Ihe price, except so faras-it extraordinary and tnsuJferable advaiice. � In the above-named periods the country was visited with bad crops, and but for this supply no inconsiderable yortioo of itu inhabitants most have perished by famine. The advocates of protectiqg duties say, v.'e admit the deficiency and the necessity for a supply, b'ut this is the very reason why a duty should have been levied; it would have been only 410 much taken out of the pockets of the foreign farmer, aod put into our own Exchequer; this, however,! apprehend is a complete fallacy, as the quantity which the foreigner sends depends upon the price he receives.. A certain price'will drain the coasts of Europe and America; hilt if we requjre more, we must have it brought down from the int'ei-lor, and then the cost ii increased; It must he brought further and further, every increase of the distance increasing Ihe price. Wheat, within the period named, wua hrouglitdOO miles down the. rivers to Danzig and Petera-burgh, and flour 1,500 lo 2,000 miles to the sbippiqg ports of America. What brought this supply but the wanta of this country,and the high prices we were willing to pay for-it ? Surely it will not be a�serted that if by any duty we had abridged the price received by the foreigner, Ibe supply would have been as great, and as we undoubtedly wanted all we obtained, it is.quite evident tbat if a duly had .been jmr posed, the consumer must have paid it. An import of 17 millions sterling requirexl an average of 91.s 6d. '.and it will hardly be contended that an average of 80s. would harj: briiughl as much, or that if we had wanted 25 millions we muat not have paid 959. to lOOs. It is the price wjiiich de,. termines the quantity imported, and the price is te^nlated hy the quantity required, and the expense of obtaibing it. If then. Sir, I should have succeeded in proving to. you, that the duty imposed must eventually he paid by the co;n-sumer whenever the wants of the country fire very large,. I will in the next place draw your attention lo the consequences uf protecting djnties, when the crop of our. own rountryii adequate to. its consumption. It usually h,ippeus that when'Ibe crop of England is good, tbat of Europe is good also; a good crop in England, it will not be denied, is equal to the conaumptiuti. Now if with such a crop we should be exposed to importation, frifm any scale of duties lo which the country is Irkely to siibmit, the-price must be depressed wretchedly low, and a succession of bountiful harvests would annihilate the agriculture of the kingdom. Even Willi defective crop's in Enrupe,we'liive seeu whatimmense quaiitilies' spared, and w'tth proactive ones it is hard to say how low the growers would be wUliiig to sell, sooner thaii hold a redundant produce which could scarcely btt-said lo possess any exchantjeahlr value, '^ The present price of the wheat;, in some of the lower ports (jf'the B,iliir,' isabbirt 32s,'per quarter, aud I am an-tjsfied'it would still ho lower, bitt fconi the cuuviction which rests on the minds of the. farmers, that if they only persevere in holding tbeir stocks/they will certainly obtain pretty near our import price, for it should l1eVemetiibeire boiid 'ami-.....

It is a iibtorious fact, that on thel-t day uf October last, which was about the time ibe .new crop began to press upon the market, the stock nf free foreiR . grain was less tban Ft had been known at any period tiuc-; 1813, and 1'am persnailed tbat the ports Would not tiav/-closed in February ISI9, had not the discussions on tlj>-subject of the-Banic Rrstrictidnt shaken lo its found', tioii the whole cororaeiTialfabric. Agriculture was not c-empted frum the consequences of that disciissioii, mid e^^f since there has been more grain thrown upon ilie imkiIi-riian the immediate dinnaod retired.
