IRELAND. The Trade between Great Britain and Ireland is no longer considered as a foreign trade, or as trading to parts beyond the Seas, but is solely governed by the regulations applicable to the Coasting Trade of the United Kingdom generally (see page 203); but an anomaly exists in this trade, which is much to be regretted, viz. : in regard to what are termed “ Countervailing Duties.” It has been the object of the Government, for some time past, to afford every facility to trade, and to that end, they have frequently directed their attention to the assimilation of the duties on the native produce and manufacture of Ireland, to the duties levied on the like articles in England, and the result has tended, from time to time, to reduce the number of articles in the table ; but it is strange that these duties should have escaped revision, (I ought rather to say, abolition altogether,) up to this present time ;-the duties levied under this head are wholly Excise duties, and are payable to that department; although an entry of the articles is required to be made with the Collector of the Customs.-Ed.

The foreign trade of Ireland is placed on the same footing as that with Great Britain, and the Regulations and Duties, in the preceding tables, apply equally to the whole of the United Kingdom ;-the only difference existing will he found in the duties and dimensions of four articles of wood goods, when imported into Ireland, viz., Battens, and Batten Ends; Deals, and Deal Ends.-Ed. See pages 177 & 180.

Foreign Goods. As a difference of duty still exists on the importation into Great Britain and Ireland of deals, deal ends, battens, and batten ends, the officers are directed to proceed, on the removal of such goods from England to Ireland, in strict conformity with the Treasury Order of the 26th Dec., 1823,+ and to permit all articles of wood to be shipped for Ireland under the usual coast regulations.—Mim. Com. Cus. 27 April, 1826.

* 6 Geo. IV. c. 107. + The Order alluded to runs thus,—“ The duties and drawbacks upon all wood goods are to be continued, and the coast officers are to require a warrant inwards and a cucket outwards, for wood goods, in addition to the ordinary coast
