The statement [B] exhibits in detail the seve

From the returns a'rea.ly received for the
three first quarters of the present yeai, and fiotn
the general knowledge of the irnj
made dining the two last months, it is believed
that ttie gross amount of duties on mere handue
imported during the whole year will, after de
