the-tV States,-- it was thought irapossiblo
that statesmen could listen to an application
for rendering the supply of half a million of

::- Although the. expectation of the InhabW
tants of Nova-Scotia, New-Brunswick and
Canada, were completely defeated, : it' must
be acknowledged that the profit of the carry
ing trada betwixt the United-States of North-
America and the British V. India colonies
waa for a time secured to the British ship
owners. . they were computed to get about
2 43,000. sterling annually, and perhaps, the
inhabitants of this country only': paid about
double the freight which the articles would
have cost if import vd in American vessels,
This, however, was during peace.
When the late war with trance commen
ced, not withstanding the immense juperiori
ty of Great-Britain by sea, and the advanta
ges of an establinhed and regular intercourse,
the national shipping gradually disappeared.
The. increasing exigencies and diminished
supplies induced the, right honourable the'
earl Halearras to assume the responsibility or
providing fir the wants of the country conn
ded l? his care, by openinj; the ports of this
island to American shipping. w

It U our painful duty to represent, that by
recurring to the system of restriction former
ly tried, the same consequences must follow
T.iiji Inevitable certainty. The capital and
labour employed in raising Maples for expor

applied to raise food for our subsistence, and
in certain situations, to procure substitutes
for lumber. ' s

practicable in ihe-best cultivated districts,
