The event long expected,of the opening of the '
Ports for the admission of foreign grain has at;
length occurred; and n Friday the averages at
tained to such a height, that it was announced that i
wheat was admissible for home consumption upon '
the payment of the minimum duty of one shilling |
per quarter, barley at three shillings &. fourpeniC, t
and oats at seven shillings and nincpcnce.
Mere than ten yeav.i have now elapsed since the 1
ports were opened, unlimitedly, for the importation J
of foreign wheat. Since the year ISIS, this coun- ‘
try, with very few exceptions, has produced its!
own supply, and fed its own population. On two
c three occasions, indeed the foreign wheat irn-*
ported and warehoused, and which was spoiling!
under the King’s locks, has been let into coustimp- j
tion upon the payment of duty. This bounty thus j
conferred on trade, to thy injury of the fanner, and I
the vory small profit of the consumer, took place
during Mr. Canning's short Administration, & the •
Revenue received nearly half a million tiom the j
measure. But, according to the geneial law, the *
ports have been shut to wheat since 1817. The a- !
vorages never attained eighty shillings per quar- j
tor, which, until 1:22, was the maximum price;and
therefore the experiment, under the new Bill ot ■
the Marquis of Londonderry, in the period ot
1822, was never made. We are now, theiefore,
commencing a new era in our corn trade, and fo- !
reign wheat is at present in the market at the low !
duty of one shilling per quarter. This is the I
Duke of Wellington’s Bill, and, since 1817, the a- j
\eragcs have never been so high as they are now I
ITo.- far the market.-"will be affected by the'ad
mission; of foreign corn, it is very difficult to say
'I here is every reason fo believe that the granaries
of Earope have been pretty nearly exhausted bj 1
the cotemporaneous demands for corn, both for j
England and France; and prices are, at this pre-*
sent momcn*. so high abroad, more especially in
iMntzic and the Baltic ports, as to afford very lit
tle prospect of remuneration to the importer. But
Jet it be remembered, that the corn now let out
for consumption was purchased up in cheap time*
The indication of a failing harvest was sufficiently
obvious in tbe month of July, and speculation was
at work in every foreign port in the purchase of
wheat, from 'he moment the wet season commenc-.
It is, however, worthy of observation, that the
c/jrn market seerns to have been managed with so
much skill, that Government has been defeated in
it3 expectations of revenue. Gambling, indeed, ap
pears to have deserted its old position in the A1-.
Jay, to have taken up its quarters at the Corn Ex
change; for novrr, we believe, has there been
kfiown a season of more trick and chicanery thati j
his lately occurred in the great staple of life. j
In considering the question of tho opening of
the ports, scarcely know what class of his Ma
jesty’s subjects to congratulate on tbie event; and
•we very much doubt If any das® will share in its
T***nefifs. The furm r, whose crop ? .os been reduc
ed and impaired in value by an unfavorable
»on, will see the fore'gn importer availing himself
of those profits which naturally belong to himself,
-^rihnneed hy the prof t of tv« merchant, who, h.1
•he gainful traffic whfoh hr has pursued, will h ivr> I
Orr.rjy doubled the COSt pr:ce which he W» paid 1

v\ih it at tail to observe, upon the payn eat of cee
shilling duty only to tho Government. Hut it may
he said that the consumer will benefit by tbe re
duced price of grain occasioned by the foreign im
portation of wheat? That he will beuofit tor a time,
we make uo doubt, but whether the advantage
will bo permanent, or not, is the only important
Whatever teaches us to depend too much upon
forcigu supplies, abridge# the spiiit of agticuHutal j
improvement, and contracts the outlay of capital i
upon land; and though manufacturers may obtain I
sorr.o assistance from a sudden demand for then j
commodities in " foreign market, the reduction of!
tho home consumption, which inevitably follows
upon tbe low price of corn, aflbrds but a poor com
pensation for a abort season of active trario abroad.
Cut wo are not disposed, to enter into tbe question i
ot the Corn Laws, or to discuss*the policy of the :
existing system. V c have often given our opinion 1
upon it, and have considered it a reasonable com- :
promise between tho two contending interests of
society, the landed and the finding interests. Our
object in the pi event tcmarV is to evil attention to
tho manifest injury which arises from the average
and warehousing system.
Government has found this system f* re-act1
upon itself, and instead of gaining revenue, as was j
expected, it has been defrauded in the very mo-1
ment ot piouiise, by the natuial tendency of the 1
late law. Tho truth is, the average and ware-}
housing system, which we are sorry io condemn, j
as we scarcely know what to aub'-titutc, has a
manifest tendency to encourage, what is already j
n great evil, speculation in corn. The mai kets j
in Britain are very much, indeed almost wholly, j
iu the hinds of professional corn dealers. They
can in many places raise or lower the averages at
their pleasure, and play w ith them according to
their own interests, iu a manner most mischiev
ous to the public, and particularly injurious to
the corn growers of this country. They are able,
under the present system, to withhold their corn
from the market, until, by deficiency of supply,
they have raised the pi ices to tiio-c rates when
they can enter their imported corn at a low du
ty-—though they may still withhold that corn from
tho market, or bring it iuto consumption as may
best suit their interest. Now, it is scarcely possi
ble to imagine a more active temptation to fraud
and extravagant speculation. We will repeat a
gein—that, during the last six weeks, the traffic
amongst stock jobbers in the Alley, during the
most sordid and scandalous periods of lmv gaming,
has been innocent in comparison with some of the
late events on the corn Lxchauge. Two inter
ests, however, have been the sufferers; one, for
which no sympathy, w as ever yet felt, the far
mer; the other, for which as little sympathy is as
ordinarily excited,—the public revenue.
But the economists hold, that speculation is the
life of trade—that the gain ot all traders, except!
com groweis,canuot be too great, whatever con-i
suiners may suffer. It is the maxim of this class. 1
mai me oniy crane wnuau prom ougni ro nc nrougnt j
as low as possible is that of the landlord and farm-1
ei; whilst the denier iu foreign corn, the merchant, I
the jobber, the factor, and all the mongrel tribe
which intervene between the com grower amt the
consumer—(we except the miller, whose profit?
us a manufacturer are always kept to the just level)
—arc left to enhance the price on the Consumer■”
by every art and contiivance.
V. c do not mean to express any regret that the]
Worts have been opened. The havest was defi- •
rient, and supplies must be had from some quar-'
'er. We would rather have wished that the ex-:
tended produce of our country had supplied the]
deficiency, as we are most certain it would have j
done, if due encouragement had been given to do-'
mestic agriculture. But the opening of the ports
must teach an important lesson to Government. I?
shows ia a strong light, the necessary frauds of the
average and warehousing system. The averages
purport to be struck upon actual sales, tl.e law .iocs
not compel, and cannot compel, actual bona fide
delivery upon those sale?, particularly of ware- ;
housed corn. The sale is often a nominal transfci,,
without any real delivery, a sale for the purposes!
of speculation, and not for actual consumption. It,
may not even ba a sale on speculation, but a!
mere contri vance to raise the avcragejnnd ibis may ;
be contrived even if a ’ual delivery should appa- ]
. 4. fitly lake place. lathe gi cat markets the corn]
may tie, and often ha? been, sold, and thus entered *
into the average ten limes, under dttlerenl names,:
before it passes to the consumer. No regulations'
can prevent this. Requiring actual delivery by
the stronge-t provisions would not prevent it. It
might be actually delivered by one speculator to!
anothei several times over, with or without bona j
fide sale, before it might come to tho hands of the '
consumer. This now tskes place t^a great extent j
iu home grown corn,in it? passage from the grow- j
cr to the market
4 hus.for the supply of any of our great manufac- j
taring towns,a corn dealer purchases of the farmer j
on credit by bills; & then sells, at the first stage
of his ti.insit to the destined market,at an advanced j
price, to another corn dealer, on similar credit, j
The corn travelling another stage towards the
place where it is to be consumed, is sold at the se
cond stage, at an advanced price, to a third com
dealer, ail on credit; and it may pass in the same
way to a third stage, and be sold in like manner,
,nd sent by the last purchaser to the market,where
it may be finally sold to the consumer, or even then
it may be sold two or three times before it coincs
to tiie consumer. The diifcrence between the
pi ice paid to the farmer, and the price for which
it i° sold to the supposed consumer at the place of
final destination, has been calculated, upon an
average, to be at least five shillings upon a quarter
of wheat. The actual consumer, indeed, pays still
more; lor he pays also what is called the miller’s
profit, but which is, iu reality, the corn dealer’s
profit, in a great degree; for the greater part of tho
mills i! those districts which arc districts of con
siderable consumption, are in the hands of coin
dealers; «nu the pi ice of bread is not regulated by
the real price of corn in any market, but by the
manoMivre* of corn dealers iu all.
Now, under such a system which we have
shortly sketched, who i? likely to profit by the
opening of the ports' The consumer, we believe,
very little; Government, as the recent event shows,
not at all; whilst the factor and the jobber gain
every tiling. _
