AMERICAN IMIOVIKIONS I lS.-Wil.AND.
London, July 27, 1843.
Mr. Editor In a former letter I com
municated somewhat respecting tlie anti-
corn-law league, and the efforts which the
friends of free trade are making to tiled
the repeal of existing icstrictive laws in
respect to trade. I am well aware that
the people of Illinois have a deep interest
in the slate of the provision market in this
country, and as it is important that they
possess correct knowledge in respect to it,
I have taken considerable pains to obtain
such information as they may rely upon
I have been greatly aided in these inqui
nes by the polite attention and aid of
Messrs. Phillips & Co. and Geo. W. At
wood & Co. provision merchants of this
city : to cither of which firms, I would
here say, that the merchants- in the west
may conseign their porvisions with the
utmost confidence that the same will be
attended to and disposed of at the best ad
vantage that the stale of the markets will
allow. Mr. Phillips, who has been in
the provision trade fo twenty years in this
country, was in America last year, and
directed the packing of poik for this mar
ket. Mr. Atwood is from New York,
where his partner now resides, lie has
also been in the provision trade for twen
ty years, and is intimately and extensive
ly acquainted with the business and with
those who are engaged in it.
Through the assistance of these gen
tlemen 1 have visited the provision estab
lishments, and personally examined the
pork and beef which is now in this mar
ket form the United States. It has..ol'ien
been published in America, that pork
must, not be put up for this market as it is
usually put up for the homo market.
Thtre are the strongest prejudices here
against toe American provisions, in part
owing to the bad state in which they have
frequently been received. This was the
occasion of Mr. Phillip's visits to Ameri
ca, ami when I came to ibis country, I
determined to ascertain the condition of
the meat which had been put up under
his direction, and in accordance with his
instructions. lie kindly afforded me
every facility, went with me to his ware
house, and caused several of the casks con
taining different kinds of meat, and which
had not been opened since they had left
America, to be opened and entiiely un
packed in my presence, by which I was
eiflibled particularly to examine its con
dition. Tho pork was in very good or
"Tir, perfectly sweet and clean in ap
pearance. I could conceive of no reason
why it should not command as good a
price in this market as the Irish porli, but
so strong are the prejudices against it,
that it cannot be sold so high per bbl. pro
bably by from 3 to 4 dollars. The beef
was also sweet but was not in so good a
condition as the pork. Ii is of too high
-a color lo suit the market. As to the
manner in which it was put up, Mr. Phil
lips could not infona me, as he was not
concerned in packing it.
The pork was put up by Mr. Wright,
of Louisville, Ky., in the following man
ner. It was first cut in pieces of six
pounds each for India pork, and in piece?
of i lbs. each for piime mess bbl. pork,
and placed in large vats in pickle, where
it remained about two weeus.
It was then taken from the pickle and
packed in casks of pure salt, and suffi
cient water to cover the pork. It was
then ready for exportation.
Fifty-three pieces of cix pounds each
make a tierce of India pork of 318 lbs.
Fifty pieces of 4 lbs. each make a bbl.
of prime mess of 200 lbs.
It is not to be supposed that each piece
will weigh precisely 6 or 4 lbs. ; but, in
taking them from tho pickle, 53 pieces
are found for India, which well weigh 318
lbs., and they should be cut as nearly
uniforn in size as they can be. consistent
ly; and fifty pieces are taken in like man
lier of the 4 lb. pork, which together weigh
200 lbs. There must bo no departure
from the number of pieces.
Of beef, 42 pieces of 8 lbs each, make
a tierce of India beef of 330 lbs.
Of beef. 38 pieces of 8 lbs. each make
a barrel of prime mess, 304 lbs.
At the present price of provisions, nei
ther pork nor beef from America fan j
come into the market for domestic use on
account of tho duty, which is equal to;
$2 perewt, or 112 lbs.
Both, however, can be received Mid I

used for tea stores and are sold to mas-!

The following are the prices at which
American provisions are now selling, sub
ject to no duly.
Beef, India, tierce of 330 lbs. at 107s.
6d. sterling per tierce ; equal to 7i els.
Beef, prime mess, barrel of 301 lbs. at
87s. 0d. eterling per barrel ; equal to C
cts. per lb.
Tork, India, tierce of 318 lbs, at 71s.
sterling per tierce ; equal to 5 cts. per lb.
Pork, prime mess, barrel of 200 lbs. at
4r. sterling per bbl.; equal to 5i cts per
Transportation to New York averages
about 5s. to lis. per tierce Ss. Cd. to 4s.
per bbl ; which is about equal to 45 cts
per 100 lb3.
Transportation from New Oteans is
now about Cn. per bbl. and may be expec
ted as low as 5s. sterling, which is about
50 per cent, higher than freights from
New York. This maybe calculated on
at 75 cents per 100 lbs.
Cheese may now be quoted at 40s. 'o
56s. sterling per cwl. for very poor to ve
ry fine American. On this a duty mus,
be paid of 10s. per cwt., and 5 per cent,
additional on the duty paid, which is equal
to from 5 to 7 J cents per lb. after paying
From these statements calculations may
be made by American shippers, whether
they can, with a fair prospect of profit,
send to a foreign market while the duties
remain as they are.
I would hero state that all kinds of pro
visions are now extremely low. Higher
prices may be calculated upon lather than
lower. Just at the present time ihere is a
considerable apprehension in respect to
the coming harvest. For several days we
have had rain, and wheat has risen in
price 9s. per quarter, but no reliance can
bo placed on the prices of grain as a
ground of direct trade in i sequence of
the operations of the sliding scale ; but
there may be a greater demand for wheat
for the Canada trade. The harvest will
be late this season on account of the ex
treme coldness of the summer and there
is yet time enough fur the crops to come
forward to maturity, and, provided ihe
weather should be favorable for a month
to come, there will doubtless be au abun
The prejudice to which I have referred
as existing against American provisions is
abating, but time alone can cure it. An
impression has obtained that American
pork wastes more in cooking than the
Irish pork, and great pains is taken to
keep up this impression. Mr. Phillips
informed me that the cook of a certain
vessel which he had supplied with provi
sions, had been tampered with, and in
duced to cut oil' a part of a piece of meat,
and then having boiled ihc remainder,
showed il to the master as evidence that
American pork would boil away. These
Iricks, however, will not always avail.
The pork thul is now in this market will
commend itself to those who use il. Let
those who send provisions here put ihem
up wiih care, making use of good salt,
and American brands will soon be in bel
ter repute. In haste, vours truly,

The eccentric John Randolph of Koan
ol.e, was by no mer-ns ihe friend or favor
ite of Henry Clay. His bilter sarcasm
and invective, hurled so repeatedly and so
efleciivcly at ihe 'vindictive demagogue,'
caused Clay much uneasiness. In giving
his opinion of Clay, Randolph said, "he
is talented and utterly corrupt, and stinks
and shines and shines and stinks like a
rotten mackerel in moon light." That's
a neat picture !
