THE REVENUE.

Abstract of the Nel Produce of thc Revenue in the years and Quarters ended

5th January, 1917, and 1818.

[blocks in formation]

Thus the receipts of the Consolidated Fund were better in the last, than in the preceding year, hy 2,008,715l.; and the annual duties were better, by nearly 200,000. The War Taxes were happily less by about twelve millions and onethird, and would bave been so by thirteen millions and a half, if there had not been arrears of Income tax to be received. The receipts of Peace Taxes in the Jast quarter were better than those in the corresponding quarter of 1817 by 752,0251. If from the total produce of the Peace and War l'axes we deduct what was received for arrears of Income ax, leaving the War Duties upon exciseable commodities to the possibility of being rendered permanent, the Revenue may be estimated at 46 millions per year. What the Expenditure shall be will depend much upon tbe ensuing Session, and more upon the New Partiainent.

Emparison of the Produce of the Revenue (exclusive of the Arrears of the War Duty en Mall and Properly), from October 10 to December 26, 1817, with the tirresponding Period 1816.

MEMORANDUM. - In the period of 1916 is not included the receipt upon the general articles of Excise nor of the Stamp Duties for the last week, the receipt upon these balances of revenue not having been paid into the Exchequer on account of the holidays, till the subsequent week; therefore, from the above increase sbould be deducted the sum of about 320,6941. leaving the increase 290,6691.

IN PORT DUTY ON SUGAR.

The import duty on Muscovado Sugar will from this time be 30s. in place of 218. per ewt. The merchaots were so convinced of this event happening, that at the Custom-house the amount paid for sugar-duties only, for the week ending on Monday, 5tb Japvary, was 851,7971. sterling. The duty of 338. has now coinmenced; the aggregate average of the Sugar for the four mooths preceding 5th January, was 508. 84d. exclusive of duty.
