produce and manufactures at ￡38,000,000. In 1840 these sums had respectively increased to ￡67,000,000, ￡13,000,000, and ￡102,000,000, setting aside odd numbers. From 1831 to 1840 the average annual export of British produce and manufactures was ￡45,000,000, while in the nine subsequent 杭州水磨会所滨江 years it was nearly ￡56,000,000. From 1830 onwards the value of our exports to France increased sixfold, notwithstanding the jealous system of protection that prevails in that country. The sphere of our commercial operations was being continually enlarged from year to year, and the enterprise of our merchants was continually opening up fresh markets in distant parts of the world. The value of the exports of British and Irish produce in 1820 was as follows:—To Northern Europe, ￡11,000,000; to Southern Europe, ￡7,000,0杭州419论坛 00; to Africa, ￡393,000; to Asia, nearly ￡4,000,000; to the United States of America, nearly ￡4,000,000; to the British North American Colonies and the West Indies, ￡5,750,000; to Central and South America, including Brazil, ￡3,000,000. The total value of our exports to foreign countries, and to our colonies in that 杭州桑拿水

In 1840 we exported the following quantities, which, it will be seen, show a large increase:—To Northern Europe, about ￡12,000,000; to Southern Europe, ￡9,000,000; to Africa, ￡1,500,000; to 杭州洗浴小姐性息Asia, ￡9,000,000; to the United States, ￡5,250,000; to the British North American Colonies, ￡6,500,000; to the foreign West Indies, ￡1,000,000; to Central and Southern America, including Brazil, ￡6,000,000; total, ￡51,000,000: showing an increase of ￡15,000,000 in the annual value of our exports to foreign countries 杭州夜网狼女 during twenty years.
In 1821, 7,250,000 lbs. of coffee were consumed by fourteen millions of people in Great Britain. In 1824 the consumption of coffee in the United Kingdom was 8,250,000 lbs., and the duties were—on foreign coffee, 2s. 6d. per lb.; East India, 1s. 6d.; British West India, 1s. per lb. In the same 杭州爱情故事spa飞机 year the consumption was—of foreign coffee, 1,540 lbs.; East India, 313,000 lbs.; West India, about 800,000 lbs. In the following year Mr. Huskisson reduced the duties on these several kinds to 1s. 3d., 9d., 杭州保健按摩上门 and 6d., respectively, which caused a rapid increase in the consumption. In 1840 the consumption was—of East and West India, 14,500,000 lbs.; and of foreign, 14,000,000 lbs. In 1841, 27,250,000 lbs. were consumed by eighteen and a half millions of people.

During one hundred years it ranged from 2s. to 4s. in the pound excise duty, with a customs duty of 14 per cent., down to a total minimum duty of 12? per cent. The former duty was estimated at 200 per cent. on the value of the common teas. The effect, as might be expected, was an enormous amount of smuggling. The monopoly of the Company was abolished; it was made lawful for any person to import tea by the Act 4 William IV., c. 85; and the 杭州夜生活西湖阁 trade was opened on the 22nd
