OBSERVATIONS.

-1. The consulado of Vera Cruz publishes " these states of its commerce annually, for the “ information of merchants respecting the “ consumption of New Spain, and to guide " them in their speculations; and they regret " that it is not in their power to give a more “. detailed account of the value of the woollen “ and cotton cloth, linen, and silks contained in " the chests (caxones and baules which are not “ opened at the custom-house. It may in “ general be observed, that the caxones arpillados contain silks; the caxones toscos hard

ware, drugs, crystals, glasses, deif ware, hats, “ shoes or boots; the tercios arpillados, woollens “ and cottons, linen and baize; and lastly, the baules, silk and cotton stockings, blond and «. bone-lace, handkerchiefs, robes, and other “ articles of luxury.

“ 2. In this balance has not been included * the merchandizes and productions imported

on account of the government (para la real

hacienda), and which would have increased " the sum total of the importations twenty

one millions and a half of piastres ; for the “ government receive 150,000 'reams of paper for the manufacture of cegars, 34,000 quin“ tals of mercury, and other articles amounting 6s in value, to two millions of piastres. The ex“ portation in coined gold and silver on account “ of government, amounted to nineteen mil• lions and a half of piastres, of which twelve 6 and a half were sent to Spain, and seven " and a half to the other Spanish colonies “ of America. .

“ 3. The produce of the home manufactures, “ have been in great request, and all the de“ mands could by no means be satisfied, which " ought to excite the manufacturers to increase 6 the activity of their workshops. , .6 4. The importation of European brandy si would have been much greater, if it had not “ been for the increasing consumption of rum “ manufactured in Mexico. The wines of “ Xeres and Rioxa are in the greatest re“ quest.

“ 5. We have still to complain of the losses “ occasioned by the insufficient package of the “ goods sent to South America : the example “ of Cadiz is far from being imitated by the .“ other ports of the Peninsula. .
