Customs' Union. .
The Earl of Westmorland to the Earl of Aberdeen.—(Received
Berlin, November 8, 1842.
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.
