The Earl of Westmorland to the Earl of Aberdeen.(Received

November 15.)
My Lord,

Berlin, November 8, 1842.
I HAVE the honour to transmit, herewith, to your Lordship, copy,
in duplicate, of the Tariff of the German Customs' Union for the years
1843, 1844, and 1845, as published in the Prussian Collection of Laws,
from which it will be perceived that, with the exception of the anticipated
increase of the import duties on mixed woollen and cotton printed goods
from 30 to 50 dollars per cwt., but few changes in general, and those
not likely, materially, to affect British manufactures, have been introduced
into the new tariff, as compared with that for the three preceding
years.

I likewise inclose the translation of a Cabinet Order, addressed by the King of Prussia to the Minister of Finance, (of which the original will be found in the above-mentioned Collection of Laws) "directing an augmentation of 50 per cent., from the 1st of January, 1843, and until further orders, on the rates of duties, as fixed by the new tariff, on several articles of small ware, leather gloves, cognac, and paper hangings.

This measure, of which I announced the probable adoption to your Lordship, in a former despatch, is intended as a retaliation upon France, on account of her having raised her tariff on linens, and having established discriminating duties respecting them, in favour of Belgium, by the convention of last July, but its application will be general to the same manufactures of other countries.

I have, &c., (Signed) WESTMORLAND.

Inclosure in No. 19.

King of Prussia's Cabinet Order respecting the increased Duties on some

Articles of the Tarif for 1848. (Translation.)

UPON your report of the 9th of this month, and in conformity with the resolution taken by the Governments of the Customs Union, I order that the following import duties shall be levied, upon the articles mentioned below, from the 1st of January, 1843, provisionally, and until further orders, instead of the rates of duties prescribed by the Customs Tariff for the years 1843, 1844, and 1845, which I have this day sanctioned.

1. On wares of gold and silver, of a mixture of fine metals, bronze (gilt) real pearls, corals or stones, or mounted with gold and silver ; further wares out of the aforesaid materials with alabaster, amber, ivory, mother-of-pearl, tortoiseshell, false stones; perfumery in small glass bottles, or stone bottles, &c., coming under the denomination of fancy articles; table clocks, except those in wooden frames ; lustres with bronze, gold or silver leaf; fans; artificial flowers; ornamental feathers, (No. 20 of the Tariff, 100 rix dollars (175 florins) per cwt.

3. On leather gloves (No. 21 of the Tariff), 44 rix dollars (77 florins) per cwt.

3. On cognac (No. 25 b. of the Tarift), 16 rix dollars (28 florins) per cwt. ; and

4. On paper hangings (No. 27 c. of the Tariff), 20 rix dollars (35 florins) per cwt.

You have to make this, my order, publicly known, in the Collection of Laws, simultaneously with the above-mentioned Customs Tariff. Berlin, October 18, 1842.

(Signed) FREDERICK WILLIAM.
