The New York papers of the
28ih ult. contain the proceed
ings in extenso of the Conven
tion of Manufacturers recently
assembled in that city. The
Convention adjourned on the
27th. They adopted the Re
port of a Committee which was
appointed to enquire into frauds
alleged to have been committed
on the revenue, and to recom
mend measures for their pre
vention in future. Thev nln
adopted resolutions to establish
' a National Association, with
branches" and nominatinc a
committee to invite the manu
facturers to appoint dcWntns
to meet in New York, in Octo
ber next, lor the purpose ofor-t
gamzing mat national institu
tion. 1 lie Kcport of the com
mittee on frauds embodies eve
ry ease, real or imaginary, of
attempted evasion ot the law,
which their industry or ingenu
ity could discover. The coun
try and the government nrn
certainly deeply indebted to
tlieir disinterested exertions
and researches on this import
ant subject. Paying no taxes
themselves, the manufacturers
have patriotically determined
that those who are taxed, and
very onerously taxed, shall not
escape a single tittle of their
tribute, levelling themselves
