Daily Advertiser (Newspaper) - February 21, 1943, London, Middlesex Ntimb. j 'i M O N D A Y, February 21 *743- P U B L I C K. TjE pay about 20C000I. yearly for the ufelefs Article of Cambricks, which in part may be fupplied from Scotland and Ireland, and the Deficiency made up with Bengal Goods, which will ferve all ^arpofes full as well, and not coll the Nation above one JtKtb Part of the Money which we pay to France for that Commodity, befides the political Consideration of enriching by this Folly the greateft Rivals we have, who would forbid immediately the taking from us any ufelcfs-Article, were it ever fo trifling a Drain from them. They are fp fmfible of the Advantage they reap by felling ni this Article of Cambricks, that not one Yard of it is even io'mueh as wore in Frasce, in lieu of which they very Vifcfy "fe Muflins from the Eaft-Indies. Every Body here is fenfible of this, and that a Prohibition would be moil �popular md agreeable to the Nation. A Prohibition of the il'ear of them is meant; for if the Import only is forbid, or a higher Duty laid on them, they'll be fmuggled, and confequently as much wore as ever. �.��"If it be afk'd, how will the 120001, be made good which the Duty upon Cambricks now brings in yearly ; the yk.fwer is, that the Duty on the India Goods which will be wore in their ftead,, being about 40 per Cent, will bring in four or five times that Sum. It fiiould be remember'd, that if the Legiflature-fhould not think fit at this time to let this Prohibition take Place,'it's in the Power of a few in high Rank, by their Example, to do it efrsctualJy, by difcountcnancing the Wear of them. N. B. The Duty upon Cambricks brings in 18000I. a Year, of which about 60001. is drawn back on what is exported to our Plantations, &c. The Importation of Cambricks has gone on increasing fince the Year 1727, and amounts now to above double what it did then. SIR, IT was with Pleafure I faw the above Letter ; fince the publifhing of which fome Objections have been made againft the Prohibition of French. Cambricks, which fo greatly concerns the Welfare of this Nation, that I could not help defiring you to infert the few following Remarks. It it faid, that a Prohibition will hurt our Friends as well as our Enemies, Cambricks being'imported from Holland, Silcfia, and other Parts of Germany. In Anfwer to which, the Cambricks brought irom Holland are none of them manufactur'd there, but in French Flanders, and fent from thence to Holland to be vvhiten'd : What comes from Silefia, and other Parts of Germany, are Linnens and Lawns, Commodities as different from Cambricks as Muflins are j thefe Linnens and Lawns are in great part fent alfo to Holland to be whiten'd ; fo that it is a great Error, to imagine we fhall prejudice the Dutch, or any of our Friends in Germany, by fucn a Prohibition. It is aliedged, that the Duty upon Cambricks is appropriated ; which is allow'd ; but if we have a Mind to favour this Prohibition, won't it be very eafy to appropriate part of the vail Increafe of Duty (which mull neceffarily arife upon Bengal Goods) to fulfil the Purpofe-s of the Duty upon Cambricks; efpecially as the beft Judges are of Opinion it will bring in three times as much. The next Objections are, that theBritifk and Irifh Manufactures of Cambricks mail ceafe, or elfe under thefe Denominations the French Cambricks will be brought in in as great a Plenty as ever, and that the Bounty given laft Year to Bvitifh-made Linnens, anting from the additional Duty on Cambricks, will be loll to chofe Manufacturers ; both which are admitted. The Manufacture of our Cambricks is in its Infancy, very fmall Quantities being hitherto made, fo that they would iuffer very little in being fupprefe'd, or converted into Manufactures of Linnen, irom whence they lately fprung. The additional Duty.upon Cambricks given lait Year for a Bounty, amounting to a very few thoufand Pounds, might be iupphed from the Duty upon Bengal Goods, as above. But if thefe Trifles are to be regarded, preferably to fo great a Saving as zooooo 1. yearly, this Country will ever groan under inextricable Difficulties, and the incefiant Complaints of a People who would rejoice to fee themselves freed from the Dread of France, and to have io beneficial an Act as this done for their Relief.__ Lttji. February 19 9 ARRIV'D, the Tartar Bomb, from a Cruize, and remains, with the Granada Bomb. Wind W. S. W. Since our laft arriv'd the Mails from Holland, Francf, and Flanders. Peterjburg, Jan. 28.
