Abstract of the Net Produce of the Revenue in the years and Quarters ended
5th January, 1817, and 1818.
Thus the receipts of the Consolidated Fund were better in the last, than in the preceding year, by 2,008,7151.; and the annual duties were better, by nearly 200,000'. 'The War Toxes were happily less by about twelve millions and onethird, and would have been so by thirieen 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 Taxes we deduct what was received for arrears of Income l 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 ensuiug Session, and more upon the New Parliament.

MEMORANDUM.-Io the period of 1816 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 should be deducted the sum of about 320,6941. leaving the increase 290,6691.
IMPORT DUTY ON SUGAR.
The import duty on Muscovado Sugar will from this time be 30s. in place of 278. per cwt. The merchants were so convinced of this event happening, that at the Custom-boose the amount paid for sugar-duties only, for the week ending on Monday, 5th January, was 851,7971. sterling. The duty of 338. has now commenced; the aggregate average of the Sugar for the four months preceding 5th January, was 508. 8 d. exclusive of duty,
