Coals.—The export duty on coals, culm, and cinders, has undergone considerable reductions within the last three years. It is now in no case higher than 68. 8d. per ton, which is on being exported to foreign countries in foreign ships, not belonging to States with which we have treaties of reciprocity; and is only half that amount in other ships. The duty on small coals, culm, and cinders, is now 28. per ton, in British ships or ships of States acting under treaties of reciprocity, and 4s. per ton in other ships. When exported to any British possessions, the whole are duty free. Under the previous scale, during part of 1831, small coals and cinders were subject to the same duty as coals. The following are the exports for the last three years, with the amount of duty thereon.
