Book Description Rarebooksclub.com, United States, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 246 x 189 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1842 Excerpt: .of the long wool of Kent and Lincolnshire, a better article is manufactured; so that in proportion to the increased application of that wool, and to the increased demand, the price will probably increase, and the profit in labour to the country will be much greater. Whilst upon this head, it does not appear necessary to take much notice of Earl Stanhope s letter. It is true that his lordship s insinuations are intended to convey his want of credit in those who have given such evidence as did not accord with his lordship s preconceived opinions, and it appears it might be most difficult to change them. In acknowledging the honor which the Duke of Richmond and Earl Stanhope have done me in noticing my omission of any mention of deterioration in 1819, I trust those noblemen will admit that I have now amply made up for that neglect, having endeavoured, chiefly with a view to their gratification, to trace the history of wool from the time of Julius C-esar, and its deterioration from the reign of Queen Elizabeth; and as Lord Stanhope justly observes, facts are stubborn things, it is probable the facts mentioned by the woolsorters, and confirmed by the Earl of Sheffield, Mr. Culley, and others, will be so stubborn as to convince every one in the kingdom that British wool is deteriorated. Passing over the sixth, seventh, and eighth divisions, upon which no observations are called for, beyond what have been already stated, Mr. Bischoff proceeds to the ninth division, --the effect of duties in this, and in foreign countries, on wool and the woollen manufactures. He says-- This most important point has not, in my opinion, been either sufficiently investigated by the Committee of the House of Lords, nor has the inquiry been directed in such a way.

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1842 Excerpt: .1824, and the quantity of wool imported was considerably less than the average of an equal number of years prior to the high duty, which decrease was undoubtedly in consequence of that duty; although, unfortunately for the agriculturists arguments, a simultaneous depression took place in the price of English wool, which it has never since recovered, and which forms a striking evidence against the validity of their objection to free importation. In 1824 the duty was again reduced to one penny per lb., and importation increased prodigiously; in 1825, 43,795,281 lbs. were imported. The financial embarrassments at the end of that year gave a very considerable check to importation, and created a permanent alteration in the consumption and value of English wool, which languished so long as the agriculturist insisted on the same price he got in 1825, viz., 18d. per lb., and was only beginning to find new channels of consumption in consequence of its cheapness, now the indispensable requisite for a demand, about the period when the appointment of the Lords Committee took place. From these data it was argued by the agricultural interest, that in respect to the important difference in the price of the present day, as compared with that which preceded the French revolution, it could not be accounted for from the ordinary causes which operate on prices generally, such as the increased value of money, c, because any such general rule must obtain equally with every species of farming produce; whereas, taking the average prices of all those articles for the two periods, it will be found, that notwithstanding the excessive depression which took place in the value of produce in 1825 and 1826, yet all else except wool are dearer at the present day than they were.
