prcienting the question in 1 more prac

pose that general excise were imposed

sential, indeed, to the perfect equality of
taxation, that all indirect taxes should fall
precisely alike upon all the production!
of domes'.h industry, mad br manufac

If the planter is called upon to pay a cer

whether the tax ultimately fulls upon

to tlfb principle of equality would require
that all the producers and all the consu

Il the value of the cotton exported by
the planter is to bo regarded as (he mea

principle, the value of the grain sold by
the farmer, or of the cloth sold by the
manufacturer, ahould be regarded as the
measure of his income, and the duty im

Novr Sir, it will be found upon exami
nation, that a general system of impost
and- excise duties equally applicable .to
all -'corn m ef ci il e xc hah gei, w he t h er for-

to the very same result as an income tax
The advocates of the prohihi'ory sys

of our foreign, when com
pared wi'h our internal commerce. In
the well known address of ihe Ilarrisburg

to 8500:000,000, being nearly ten times
1 he amount of our for ign commerce.. I
think this ''estimate extravagant.; and will
no', therefore, use it, even against the
manufacturers .themselves. It may be
safely assumed, however, that the inter
nil commerce of the Union amounts to
two hundred and eighty millions, exclu
sive of the coisting trada in freign
merchandise. It fullo therefore, that
