from a speech in Congress, of Mr. (iriuuell
of New Bedford. In regard to the method of
levying duties, ho says :
1st. I am of opinion, and I believe all
bunnies men will agree with me, that spe
cific duties are better, in all cases where
they can bo collected with convenience, than
ad valorem ; particularly when assessed on
tlitf value ot goods whence imported. My
experience ol twenty years in mercantile life
in the city of New York, has taught me that
there will always be a set of men ready at
nil times to defraud the government of the
mines wherever there is the least opening ;
at the same time they wrong the honest im
porter. To such an extent was this carried
at one period in that city that nearly if not
every American importer of woolen goods
from England, and of French manufactures
trom b ranee, were driven from the busine:
it went into the hands of foreign agents, ma
ny ol whom were detected in their frauds, as
the public documents and records of the
courts abundantly show. It must be plain
to all, that there is very little, if any chance
to defraud the revenue when the duty is so
Tahiti Affaius. Our dates arc month
later. Wc learn that great activity prevails
nnong the public works, and many private
edifices are being erected. The editor ol
the Tahitian Journal remarks upon the gen

Admiral Ilainclin arrived Dec. f21st. in
the frigatu Virginic. Nothing definite had
transpired in regard to his mission, up to
the departure ol the Inez. We learn how
ever, that ho was surprised not to find the
Protectorate flag waving. He left France
July 27, before the news of the battles of Ma-
hahena and Hapape had been received, and
finding upon his arrival such an unexpected
stateofairairs.it is presumed that he will
wait for further orders from France. The
conduct of Pomare renders this course ne
cessary. She appears firmly bent upon com
ing to no terms with (iov. Bruat, unless he
restores to her in full, her land and property
and re-hoists her flag. To this etlect she
addressed a letter to him in October last.
Her people remain perfectly tranquil within
their entrenchments, awaiting the move
incuts of the French ; but every day adds
to the difficulty of withdrawing their estab
lishment, and it appears to be the general
impression that it would be permanent; the
Queen being induced to accept of terms,
t'ither entirely to yield the sovereignty, or
t reside peaceably under the Protecto
rate. There were lying in Papeite harbor, frig
ates Virginio and Uianio ; corvettes Ivhin,

erence to the minutes of the meetinr of the

augurs well for the renewal of the scheme
when circumstances become more favorable.
Jt appears to be the general opinion that a
successful fishery can be carried on from
this port, if suitable vessels and skillful cap
tains can be procured. A few small but
successful expeditions led to the present
flourishing condition of New Bedford, Nan
tucket and other American towns. The an-
vantagesof immediate vicinity to the ground
arc with us, and markets annually increas
ing and opening about us. The Oregon
will shortly consume much oil. Yearly the
advantages towards fitting out vessels from
this port are becoming more ample, but per
haps the be.ter plan at the commencement o
the enterprise would be to purchase and fit
out a ship in the United States.
