+ See“ Spices,” +7 Geo. IÙ., c. 48. (6 July, 1826.) This is an implied, rather than a positive duty. The Act 6 Geo. IV. c. 111, levied a duty of 4d. per lb. on this article, which was reduced, by Treasury order of 19 Aug. 1826, to 2d. per lb. on the several parties engaging, (though not by bond) on the entry of the article, to pay the existing full duty, (viz. 4d. per lb.) provided the reduction should not be confirmed by Parliament, which has never yet been done. The Act 7 and 8 Gev. IV. c. 56, reduced the duty on Castor Sced from 4d. to 1d. per lb.; and since this took place, it has been stated that Castor Nats and Castor Seed (although hitherto legislated upon as distinct articles, are one and the same thing; and as Castor Seed is now rated at ld. per lb., a higher duty should not be taken on Castor Nuts than on the Seed.-Ed. 19 Geo.

# The merchant will perceive that under the head of Chemical, Essential, or Perfumed, there are Six descriptions of Oil rated by the Act 2 and 3 Wm. IV. c. 84, and that all other Chemical, Essential, or Perfumed Oils are by the same Act rated at ls. 4d. per lb. Now if any of the Oils rated by former Acts, the names and rates of which are here preserved, should prove to be Chemical, Essential, or Perfumed, it will be his duty to state to which description they belong, and pay the duty accordingly; if belonging to neither, then the rate of duty placed opposite to the article will be that to wbich it is liable. I have preferred stating it in this way, rather than do that which the Act has not presumed to do, that is, to define what other Oils are or are not Chemical, Essential, or Perfumed.--Ed. | Min. Com.
