In September, 1836, a great reduction was made in the dock dues; and they were then entirely taken off all goods arriving coastwise, or from Ireland.

It is extremely difficult, or rather, we should say, quite impossible, to form any correct estimate of the total amount of the trade of Liverpool. in 1850, however, the real or declared value of the produce and manufactures of the U. Kingdom exported from Liverpool to foreign parts amounted to 34,891,8471., while her imports, inc. the coasting trade, did not, perhaps, fall short of 30,000,0001. The following statement is probably not far from the mark. Exports.

The vast preponderance of Liverpool in the cotton trade is obvious from the following statement taken from the comprehensive and valuable table published by Messrs. Holt and Co., cotton brokers. Account of the Quantities (in Packages) of the different Species of Cotton imported into Great Britain

from 1840 to 1850, both inclusive ; specifying the whole Quantity imported into Liverpool.

'The mercantile marine of Liverpool is inferior only to that of London ; there having belonged to the pori on the 31st of December, 1850, 1,715 sailing vessels of the aggregate burden of 503,224 tons ; manned by about 17,000 seainen: of these 218 vessels of the burden of 7,192 tons were under 50 tons each. There then also belonged to Liverpool, 93 steamers of the aggregate burden of 11,411 tons.

The gross customs revenue of Liverpool, in 1849, amounted to 3,474,2021., and in 1850 to 3,356,57(4., while that of London, in the latter year, amounted to 11,095,1461. But it would be an error lo sup. pose that the trade of ihe metropolis exceeded that of Liverpool in this proportion. Cotton wool, and other raw materials for manufactures, on which no duty is paid, form the principal part of the fort in imports of Liverpool; whereas Loudon imports comparatively few of these articles, ber trade being principally in articles of direct consumption, as sugar, tea, coffee, wines, &c., on which high duties are paid. "This circumstance accounts, in part at least, for the comparatively large amount of the customs revenue received in the latter ; and, allowing for it, we doubt whether the foreign trade of London exceeds, or even equals, that of Liverpool.

The following table gives a view of the distribution of the foreign and domestic trade of Liverpool in 1819. An Account of the Number and Tonnage of Vessels which entered inwards and cleared outwards at

the Port of Liverpool, in 1849 ; specifying the Countries from which they came and for which they sailed.

Lines of Packets. --- Few things have conduced more to the progress of the trade of Liverpool, and we may add, of the empire, than the establishment of a regular communication, by means of packet ships, between this great emporium and other British and foreign ports. The intercourse with the former is principally carried on by means of steamers, which are daily leaving for and returning from Dublin, Glasgow, Belfast, Bristol, and other ports. But the regular intereourse between Liverpool and foreign ports is principally carried on by sailing vessels, which in point of security, expedition, and accommoda. tion for passengers, are not to be surpassed by any ships to be elsewhere met with. New York being more intimately and extensively connected with Liverpool than any other foreign port, no fewer than 24 packet ships, distributed into 5 lines, are engaged in the trade with that city; and there are also packet ships which sail regularly for other ports in the U.S., and for Rio, the Havannah, &c.

The packet ships for New York sail from Liverpool on the 1st, 6th, 11th, 16th, 21st, and 26th of each month throughout the year. And they sail on the same days in each month from New York for Liverpool.

Cabin passage to New York, 201.; from New York, 75 dollars, which includes provisions, beds, &c., but neither wines por liquers.

The ships, which vary in size from 700 to 1,000 tons burden each, are all American property, and built chiefiy in New York, of beautiful workmanship, and fitted up with every convenience for passengers, and in a most expensive and splendid style. Each ship has a separate cabin for ladies ; each state-room, in the respective cabins, will accommodate two passengers : but a whole state-room may be secured for one individual by paying at the rate of 1 passage, that is, 301

Packets for Philadelphia sail from Liverpool on the 12th and 26th of every month ; and from Phila. delyihia for Liverpool on the 12th and 2 th of each month. Cabin passage to Philadelphia, 201. ; to Liverpool, 80 dollars.

Sailing packets for Boston leave Liverpool on the 20th of each month ; and they leave Boston for Liverpool on the 5th.

The American MAIL STEAMERS sail. for eight months in the year, from Liverpool every Saturday, alternately for Halifax and Boston, and for New York, leaving America on the return voyage every Wednesday. But in December, January, February, and March, the mail steamers only' sail once a fortnight. Cabin passage to Boston or New York, 351. ; to Liverpool, 120 dollars.

The rate of stierage passage varies considerably in the course of the year: depending on the number of ships and the number of passengers going at the time. By the packet ships, it is at present (1848) 31. 10$. ; by casual ships it varies from 31. to 31. 10s., current rate, 31. ; it rarely pow exceeds 41. For these rates the ship provides nothing but berths, fire, and water; the passengers provide their own provisions, bedding, &c. The expense of provisions for a poor person, who mixht wish to be as economical as possible, for the voyage out to the U. States, would not be more than from 40s. to 50s.

The cabin passage by the common traders (many of which are little inferior to the packets in equipment and safety) varies from 12. to 201.; no wides being provided at these rates, but provisions, wedding, malt liquor, and spirits.

The rates of freight to New York, are -

Fine goods, per ton measurement of 40 cubic feet
Hardware
Coarse low-priced goods
Iron, per ton of 20 cwt.
Coals, do. do. (not taken by packets)
Crates of earthenware, per ton of 10 cubic feet
