I HAVE the honour to transmit, herewith, to your Lordship, copy,
in duplicate, of the Tariff of the German Customs’ Union for the years
1843, 1844, and 1845, as published in the Prussian Collection of Laws,
from which it will be perceived that, with the exception of the anticipated
increase of the import duties on mixed woollen and cotton printed goods
from 30 to 50 dollars per cwt., but few changes in general, and those
not likely, materially, to affect British manufactures, have been introduced
into the new tariff, as compared with that for the three preceding
ear’S.
y I likewise inclose the translation of a Cabinet Order, addressed by
the King of Prussia to the Minister of Finance, (of which the original will
be found in the above-mentioned Collection of Laws,) directing an
augmentation of 50 per cent, from the 1st of January, 1843, and until
further orders, on the rates of duties, as fixed by the new tariff, on several
articles of small ware, leather gloves, cognac, and paper hangings.

This measure, of which I announced the probable adoption to your Lordship, in a former despatch, is intended as a retaliation upon France, on account of her having raised her tariff on linens, and having established discriminating duties respecting them, in favour of Belgium, by the convention of last July, but its application will be general to the same manufactures of other countries. I have, &c.,
