The general rate of duties against' the world has teen reca.st. There aie more elTectiyo aKcncy in transferring trade from foreign countries to British .merchar.ts and manufacturers. In many IntiMrtant lines of trade the British preference is now ntorc than one third of the general tart'lT. Inihis s|>oerh, too. Mr. Fielding said tho right woni about the attrtudo of Canada towards the larger scheme .�f n reciprocal proformco. Canada mam tains tho prcfcrcBoe for her own Iwn-cfit and as a mark of affection and regard tor Oroal Britain: and with no inteirtion ?>f nuktog it an iustru-mcnt for tho coercion of the British people. The intermediate sot of rates is a now dotmrture. At presmt it docs not go Into cRect: and lias been put into the tariflf to afford a b�.sl8 for negotioition with countries that desire to enter into reciprocal tradi* arranipemcnts with Canada. It is midway between tho British tariff and the general.tariff, thus ensuring that in any ever.t no foreign counirr, will ever iia\'� tho right to ship its goods into Canada upon as favor -able terms as those which apply to importations from Oreat Britain and her colonists.
