LO

Mr. Mann, member of Parliament, South Shields, has procured another return respecting the shipping interest, which was made public, April 1st, 1846. It embraces returns of sailing vessels registered at each port of the United Kingdom, including the Isle of Man, &c., in 1846 ; of vessels entered and cleared coastwise in 1845 ; of number and tonnage of vessels registered at each of the ports of the colonies; of vessels built, registered, sold, wrecked, and broken up in 1815. These returns, comprised in one, extend to twelve printed pages. It appears that in England, Scotland, and Ireland, the sailing vessels registered on the 31st of December last, numbered, under 50 tons, 6,216, and 10,952 above that tonnage, in England; the tonnage of the former was 182,429, and of the latter 2,093,409 : in Scotland the number under 50 tons was 1,294, and above 50 tons, 2,187 ; the tonnage of the former was 38,114, and of the latter 484,615 : in Ireland the number under 50 tons was 1,004, of which the tonnage was 28,312, whilst of 1,056 above 50 tons, the tonnage was 178,518. The vessels and tonnage of those of Guernsey, Jersey, and the Isle of Man, are given. There were of steam vessels on the same day, 357 registered in England under 50 tons, and 337 above 50 tons; in Scotland 30 under and 109 above, and in Ireland 8 under and 71 above 50 tons. Of vessels that entered and cleared coastwise in the year ending the 31st of December last, there were in England 109,570 inwards, with a tonnage of 8,357,366 ; and outwards 122,763, with a tonnage of 9,136,731. Of steam vessels in the same category there were 10,358 inwards, with a tonnage of 2,056,921 ; and 10,253 outwards, with a tonnage of 1,957,061. In Scotland the number of sailing vessels inwards was 19,680, the tonnage 1,185,507; and outwards 19,758, the tonnage 1,720,118. And of steam vessels 2,889 were entered inwards, with 748,674 tonnage ; and 2,862 outwards, with a tonnage of 713,009. In Ireland of sailing vessels there were 17,839 inwards, with a tonnage of 1,260,567; and 10,564 outwards, with a tonnage of 684,611 ; whilst of steam vessels there were 3,653 entered inwards, and 3,797 outwards, of which the tonnage of the former was 923,021, and of the latter 956,121. The three next branches of the return show the number of vessels and tonnage to and from the colonies in the year, embracing several thousand ships, as well as those from and to foreign ports.

A document of considerable importance to England and the commercial world generally, moved for by Sir Robert Peel, was presented to Parliament during the second week of March, 1845. These statements were made up at the Statistical Department of the

Board of Trade, from Custom-House returns, and are designed to show the operation of some of the chief free trade measures which have been adopted by the British Government during the last twenty years. Our object in transferring them to the pages of the Merchants' Magazine, is to give our readers an idea of the extent of the commerce, &c., of the British Empire. The first return it contains is of the number and tonnage of British shipping belonging to England in each year since 1820, and of the amount of tonnage employed in foreign trade in each year since 1832. The second return is a statement of the real or declared value of British exports from 1827 to the present time ; distinguishing the amounts exported to Northern Europe, Southern Europe, Africa, Asia, United States, British America, and the West Indies, the foreign West Indies, and South America. The third is a statement of the nett revenue of the customs in each year from 1839 to 1845. The fourth is an account of silk, distinguishing raw, thrown, and waste, taken into consumption in each year since 1814, with the rates of duty payable in each year. The fifth is an account of the exports of silk goods in each year since 1826, distinguishing the amount exported to France, other countries in Europe, the United States, Mexico, South America, and the foreign West India islands, British Possessions in America, and the West Indies, Africa, Asia, Australia, etc., etc. An Account of the Number of Vessels, with the Amount of their Tonnage, and the Num
