• V* The General Advertiser. a— ,.. MONDAY, FEBRUARY JQ, 1745- 6. REASONS Duty against laying any New on SUGAR, THE Point in Question has undergone a strict Examination in one House of Parliament, and after a most solemn Debate, the Duty was dropt the last Session but one. The same Reasons that were then so justly alledged against it; founded on Facts still subsisting, remain in _ their full Force. And whoever will take the Trouble to compute the ac- cumulated Charges brought on the Sugar Colonies since the War began, will be convinced, that they are at tins Time equally unable to bear any additional Duty. For it is apparent, that Sugar hath been less profitable t0 the Planter for these last two Years, than it has been at a Medium of 20 Years before the Commencement of the War, and then it yielded but a small Recompence for the Planter's Labour. This last was so acknowledged a Truth, and so well- known to the Legislature, that several Acts of Parliament passed within that Period of Time for the Relief of the Sugar- Colonies. The accumulated Charges upon Sugar, occasioned by the present War, will best appear by stating the Facts. 1. The Rate of Insurance Homewards, which used to be at two Pounds ten Shillings per Cent, in Time of Peace, from Barbadoes and the Leeward- Islands, is now at twen- ty- six Pounds five Shillings per Cent, without Convoy, and fifteen Pounds fifteen Shillings per Cent, with Convoy. From Jamaica, Insurance used to be at four per Cent, k is now at twenty- six Pounds five Shillings per Cent, without Convoy, and twenty Guineas per Cent, with Convoy. 2. Freight Homewards, which used before the War to be from three Shillings to four Shillings for every hundred Weight of Sugar from Barbadoes and the Leeward Island;, has been since the War from seven Shillings and six- pence to ten Shillings per Hundred ; and from Jamaica, from ten to twenty Pounds per Ton. 3. Freight and Insurance of Ships Outward- bound to the Sugar Colonies are increased in full as great a Pro- portion. 4. The Price of Negroes is risen since the War full fifty per Cent, nor is there a sufficient Supply to be had at that Rate. 5. All the Necessaries of Life, Lumber, and all Mare- rials for carrying on a Sugar- Plantation, together with the Taxes paid to the several Governments abroad for their extraordinary Defence and Security, besides a most severe personal Service, and the Labour of the Negroes at the Fortifications, are all of them greatly increased, and most of them in a double, and some in a treble Pro- portion. 6. Besides the Facts before enumerated, there is another considerable one behind : Several Planters have made large Insurances on the Whole, or the greatest Part of their Possessions abroad at a very high Premium. 7. And in the last Place, the additional Duty on Home- made Spirits, which sunk the Price of Molasses from Thir- teen Shillings and Six- pence to Nine Shillings and Six- pence per Hundred- Weight, is another particular that ought not to be omitted, in order to close the Account of the heavy, and almost insupportable Burthens brought on the Sugar- Colonies by the War: But if any new Burthen should be laid upon them, their Ruin and Destruction must unavoidably be the Consequence. For it may be averr'd, with the greatest Truth, that the Planters in general are not rich, as some Persons suppose, but that three Parts in four of them are largely indebted to the Merchants of Great- Britain. Therefore no Argument can be drawn in Favour of an additional Duty from the present Price of Sugar, more es- pecially when Search is made into the Causes to which it is owing. They are these: 1st, The Failure of the Crops in the Sugar- Islands, for the last two Years, by Hurricanes, the Blast, dry Wea ther, and other Accidents. And 2dly, The great Number of Sugar- Ships lately taken by the French in the Mouth of the Channel. It would therefore be a very extraordinary Way of Rea- soning to urge the Consequences necessarily attending the Distress of our Sugar- Colonies, as a Foundation for laying further Distresses upon them. If the Circumstances just mentioned, together with the success of Admiral Townsend, and a Demand for Expor tation to Hambourgh and Holland had not concurred to quicken our Vent, let the Appeal be made to every Mer- chant in Great- Britain, whether Sugars would have yielded . a Price sufficient to have paid the present Duties and Charges attending the Making and Importation of them to Great- Britain. Another Point strongly insisted on is, that all Taxes fall upon the Consumer. Every Dealer in the Kingdom knows that this Supposi- tion is founded on a Mistake. It is so in the present Case. For the Sugar Merchant has been never able to force a a Price upon the Buyer for a Course of Time within the Remembrance of any one Person now concerned in the Trade. 1. Because the Price of Sugar is governed by the Plenty or Scarcity at Market. 2. Because the Importation of that Commodity, taken one Year with another, hath been greater than the Home Consumption. This is so true in Fact, that when the Sugar Colonies did not make half the Sugar they now do, there was still a Surplus remaining, and no Complaint of a Scarcity. Thus the Use of Sugar has been growing with the In- crease of the Colonies, and will most certainly decline when that Commodity lies under Discouragements by high Du- ties, or from any other Cause. For Sugar is not of absolute Necessity for Life, but the Bulk of the People may, and do in a great measure lay it aside, when Reasons of Frugality require it. The advanced Price for the two last Years has had this Effect, the Consumption of late being greatly diminished so that whatever enhances the Price, serves, at the same time, to abate the Consumption ; and when the Consump- tion abates, there will be a greater Surplus at Market. Therefore, if it were in the Power of the Sugar- Seller to throw the Weight of an additional Duty, as the Main- tained of this Opinion suppose, upon the Consumer for a time, the Planter must bear the Burthen of it in the End If an additional Duty on Sugar be considered in another Light, and as a Security for the Loan of Money, it will be found not to answer. For, It has been already observed that last Year our very Pos- sessions in the West Indies we re insured, and Insurance at one time could not be done on some of them for 6 Months only under 10 per Cent, and at another Time the Insurers would not underwrite such Policys at any Rate. What has been may be again. Therefore additional Duties, arising from the Produce of Places, so precariously held as our Sugar Islands are, and laid upon a Trade already taxed in various and innumerable Shapes beyond what it is able to bear, when brought to Market, must be supported by some other Security, out of which the Deficiency must ultimately be made good. And in Fact the double Duty on the Molasses Spirits laid in as a fund in Part for raising three Millions of Mo- ney towards carrying on the Expences of the present War, does not yield so much as the single Duty did before ; and, tho' a real Hardship on the Sugar- Colonies, Refiners, and Distillers, has not proved of any Use to the Government. Nor can the Exigency of Affairs justify the laying an additional Tax, which must deftroy that Trade from which it arises, and with it not only the additional Tax it- self, but all the other Taxes formerly laid upon it. This would be running too great a Risque, and paying too dear for the Shadow of a Security only ; and instead of answering, would serve only to encrease the Necessities of the Government by the Destruction of Trade. t Upon the whole, the laying an additional Duty on Sugars will be in effect, yielding to the French not only all the Advantage, which by the Superiority of our Naval Force, we have lately gained over their Sugar Colonies, but will be also raising them up higher for the time to come, on the Ruin of our own. , On the contrary, it is the constant Policy of France, instead of loading, to ease their Sugar Colonies as much as possible, and in some Cases, even beyond the Mother Country itself: For, it is very remarkable, that tho' they have in the Compass of the present Century put in practice every Measure, just or unjust, that Arbitrary Power could suggest, to drain the Purses of their People in Europe, yet upon Sugars they have laid no new Duty since the Year 1698. * The amazing Progress and Increase of their Colonies be- yond ours since the Peace of Utrecht, is without doubt to be ascribed chiefly, if not solety, to this Cause. In the last place, Experience has taught us this melan- choly Truth, that the French Sugar Colonies and ours can never flourish at the same time ; for whatever depresses the one, tends immediately to the Advancement and the Pros- perity of the other. * Vide the Arrets of Louis the, XIVth. Deal, February 8. SAIL'D Yesterday after Post his. Majesty's Ship Mary Gally, to the Northward. Arrived from a Cruize the Eagle Privateer, who has brought in a French Fishing Boat ; also the Cholmondley, and Lisle ; and remain with the Princess Louisa, Admiral Payne; Defiance, Ruby, and Norwich, with a Dutch Man or War. Wind S. W. byS. The Friendship, Battershall, from Newfoundland, - is arrived at Barbadoes-. LONDON. From the London Gazette. Berlin, Feb. 8. N. S. His Prussian Majesty continues here in good Health M. Klinggraff set out on Sunday last for Dresden, where he is to reside for the Future After the King of Prussia's Departure; for Potsdam, which is fixed for the 15th Instant, the Winter Diversions are to end. Copenhagen, Feb. 5. N. S. The King of Denmark, who has relied very little for several Nights of late was more out of Order Yesterday, than he has been at any Time yet and for that Reason the Council was omitted. But last Night his Majesty slept pretty well, and finds himself To- Day much better. Willemstadt, Feb. 8, N. S. Upon the 3d Instant the Hessian Hussars were embarked. On the 4th the Regiment of Grenadiers, 1 5th-, Prince Maximilian's Regiment; and their Horses 6th; Lieutenant General Mansbach's, J 6th, Six Companies of the Guards: In the Night of the sixth it blew so hard, and the Tide was so high, that the Platform on the Head was washed away, and all Yesterday Morning was spent in- Repairing it it. It being so late before we began to embark again, only six Companies could be got on board with the Horses of General Wolfe's Regiment, and twenty- five belonging to the Artillery. If the Weather had continued moderate, this Day would have compleated the Regiment of Guards, and we should have embarked Donop's Regiment; but in the Night the Wind sprung up at East, and blew excessively hard with heavy Snow, which continues, so that all stands still. If a Frost should succeed, the Snow will occasion so much Ice, that it will greatly disconcert the Embarkation, and the Troops already embarked, be obliged to put to Sea. The Men of War, Yatchs and Transports were seen off the Hender a few Days ago, and all except the Yatchs were obliged to go off the Coast again. They are now got in near Brewer's Haven, to the Westward of Goree. Willemstadt, Feb. 10. Captain Barker, on board his Britannick Majesty's Ship the Gibraltar Man of War, and two others, arrived at Helvoet Yesterday, with 23 Trans- ports from England. Prince Frederick of Hesse. and the Earl of Craufurd, are arrived here from Antwerp, in order to embark with the Hessians Troops, which are commanded by his Highness. Willemstadt, Feb. 15. The Fleet sailed Yesterday After- noon about Three o'clock, and it is hoped will be near their destin'd Port by To- morrow Night or Thursday Morning. The remaining Transports are all gone from before this Town to save themselves from the Ice, fo that the Embarkation of the British Cavalry is re- tarded.' Antwerp, Feb. 10. We have Advices here, that james's Regiment of Irish Cavalry, with their Horse Furniture, and two Regiments of Irish Troops, were embarked at Ostend in six large Tranfports for Scot- land. Hague, Feb. 15, N. S. By an intercepted Letter from a French Engineer, employed before Brussels, to the commanding Officer of that Nation at Louvain, dated 12th Instant, it appears, that the Trenches were opened on the 9th Instant. That on the 12th there were but Six Mortars, and Four Pieces of Cannon in Battery. That the Garrison kept an incessant Fire, having killed in that Space 180 Men of the Enemy ; and had made several small Sallies which had retarded their Approaches. ThiS said Engineer adds, that from the Countenance and Be- haviour of the Garrison, and the bad Management of his own People, Brussels was like to give them much more Trouble than they had imagined ; and he did not expect to carry the Place under Ten Days more. Letters from Mechlin of Yesterday say, that the French had then got up a second Battery of 14 Pieces, and that they had formed but one Attack between the Gate of Louvain and Scharbeck. As soon as the Austrians, who are said to have past the Maese on the 10th Instant, join Prince Waldeck, he hopes to be in a Condition to give the Besiegers some Disturbance. / . v ADVERTISEMeNTS are taken in for this Paper, at LLOYD'S COFFEE- HOUSE, in, Lombard- Street, 4 Helvoetsluys 14. The Embarkation of the Hessian Infantry and Hussars was finished Yesterday Morning, and the Transports are new all here ready to sail with the first Opportunity, which it is hoped will be this Evening. His Highness the Prince of Hesse is in good Health on board the Gibraltar Man of War. Helvoetsluys, Feb. 15. This Morning at Six the Men of War, with the Transports having on board the Hessian TroopS sail'd from hence with a fair Wind for Scot- land. A Letter from a Gentleman at Edinburgh to his Friend at London, dated Feb. I. ' I have the Pleasure to acquaint you, that his Royal Highness the Duke arrived at this City on Thursday Morning about three o'Clock, which was finely illumi- nated for his Reception. He went immediately to the Abby of Holyrood- house, where he lodged; and about Noon he received the Compliments of the Burgesses of this City, of the Presbytery of Edinburgh, and of all the People of Distinction here, and in the Evening there was a Drawing- room for the Ladies. His Royal High- ness is as much admired by the People as he is beloved by the Army, and that, I dare say, is as much as any Ge- neral or Prince in Europe. His Presence had an imme- diate and visible EfFect on those Regiments who were damped by their unlucky Retreat at Falkirk. All the Army is encouraged by supplying them carefully with their Necessaries and Provisions ; I am told, that the Earl of Hoptoun caused them to be acquainted, that he will give a Largess of a hundred Guineas to every Regi- ment that shall have the Duke's Approbation of their Behaviour in the next Action, Early on Friday Morn- ing the Duke marched all the Force; about this Place Westward to Linlithgow and Borrowstonness, excepting the Remains of Legonier's and Hamilton's Dragoons. He would have no Volunteers or Low- Country Militia to go along with the Army, nor even Officers whose Regi- ments were not there, tho' a good many such are here, and in Consequence ordered the Earls of Hume and Glen- cain to remain here with the Regiments raised in this Place. The Argyllshiremen under Lieutenant- Colonel Campbell, he took with him. It would delight you to see what a Figure they make ; I think they look to be the cleanest and best made Men I ever beheld, and I am persuaded they'll behave gallantly.— It is said, that about 600 more from Argyllshire joined the Duke this Morning, and now there are from that Quarter more good Men than might have been sufficient to quell the Rebellion, if they had been armed some Months ago. ' Tis now 11 o'Clock at Night, and the latest Accounts we have from the Duke were dated about One o'Clock, when his Royal Highness was marching briskly on Foot at the Head of the Army near Falkirk, and ' tis said, that Numbers of Country People about Stirling were come with Intelligence that the Rebels were moving West- ward toward to the Ford of Frew, about four or live Miles above Stirling, in which Cafe ' tis hoped, that the Duke will have a Detachment in Stirling this Night.— We have got in here this Evening Blyth's Regiment of Foot from Berwick in two Days, having been carried by the Country Horses from Dumbar this Day, besides 600 armed Militia from the Parishes near to this Town. Yesterday and Thursday have been as favourable Weather as could be wished for in this Season, a hard Frost, clear, without Snow or much Wind, and the Roads as good as in Summer. Yesterday Morning arrived an Express from Scotland, which we hear brought Advice, that his Royal Highness the Duke of Cumberland had certainly pass'd the Forth on Tuesday last, and was march'd in pursuit of the Rebels, who ' tis said have divided themselves into two Bodies, and are marching from his Royal Highness with the utmost speed. We hear, that the Lord Lewis Gordon, who has been very vigorous in raising large Sums of Money, under Pain of Military Execution, from the poor People of Scotland ; upon his being applied to by the Pretender's Receivers, for the Cash, declared he would only pay a Part of it for the present, and when their Cause had a better Face, he would deliver up the Remainder ; for it was now high time to think a little for himself.—' Tis said he has col- lected together nigh 30,0001. Letter from Deal, Feb. 8. Capt. Beazley, in the Eagle Privateer, has brought in a French Fishing Vessel, bound to St. Valaries; the Master of which gives an Account, that he met with 40 Sail of small Transports, from Boloign, bound to Dieppe, but had no Men on board, except those necessary to work the Vessels. We arc just now inform'd, that Capt. Beazley drove 14 of the above- mention'd Transports on shoar.' The Hawehorne, Gray, from Lisbon for London, is re- taken by the Jamaica Sloop of War, and brought into Plymouth. The Italian Merchant, Dowglass, from Jamaica to Lon- don, is taken by a French Privateer, and carried into St. Maloes. The Privateer was afterwards lost, and all the CrEW perish'd, On Saturday last his Royal Highnefs the Duke of Cum- berland's Baggage, & c. was brought back to Town from Gravesend. Yesterday the Rebels, taken at Carlisle, were at En- field, and will certainly be brought to Town this Day about 12 o'Clock. Yesterday was married at St. Paul's, Mr. Ambrose, an eminent Attorney in Bishopsgate- street, to Miss Clark, Daughter of Mr. Clark of Grays in Kent, a beautiful young Lady with a considerable Fortune. Yesterday Morning died at his House in Shroedith, Mr. Thornton, advanced in Years, reckon'd the oldest Velvet Weaver in England. Last Tuesday John Franklyn, John Cozins, and Anne Hipson were committed to Salisbury Goal, for Counter- feiting the Coin of this Kingdom, several Pieces of false Coin and Tools being found upon them, diligent search is making after several others. SCOTLAND. Edinburgh, Feb. 4. We are inform'd that the High- landers are dispersing in fmall Parties, and that they are forcing the Country People to exchange their Habits for their Highland Clothes.— The Duke has caused his brave and loyal Highlanders, to pass the Forth as Yesterday, along with the Horse, and this Day intended to follow, and allow the Rebels no Time to rest. Last Week the Hazard Sloop of War taken at Mon- trose, when the French landed under Lord John Drum- mond, and now in the Possession of the Rebels, sail'd from that Harbour, with the Person stil'd the French Ambas- sador, and some others of Distinction on Board. The blowing up of the Powder Magazine at St. Ninians, was attended by the Death of several who were too near when the Explosion happened ; and even some of the Highlanders themselves perished by the rash Attempt. Yesterday the recovered Invalids of the Army march'd to join his Royal Highness. The Officers taken Prisoners at the Battle of Preston, and who were retaken in the Absence of the Rebels have by his Majesty's Order, put on their Swords and Coc kades. P. S. We are just now inform'd, that the Pretender's Son with the Clans, are march'd to the Highlands ; and that the rest of the Rebel Army abandoned Perth Yester- day Morning. On the Flight of the Rebels. A Savage Race rous'd from their howling Dens, Issu'd tumultuous o'er our happy Plains, With lawless Rapine vex'd Britannia's Isle, And check'd her generous Force with brutal Wyle ! But WILLIAM comes, the just Report of Fame Lo, they are scatter'd at his awfull Name! As conscious Guilt from Goodness shrinks away, Or as the Darkness flies before the Day.
