herireopporiedbyhi boo colleagooaod si others on morion of mr morris the houso went into commmiticio on certain resolu tion respecting iho timber trade mr morris said the resolution which ho wm nhotit to submit fr the couiidera lion of the committee became necessary for the protection of ft most important breach of tho trail of ihis country the imperial parliament arc it is said ahouf to alter the duty on baltic timber uod un less the people of this colnuy take imme diate slept to convince hi majesty ml oisterthal flay material change affecting the timber trade of the canada will cause its ruin and the bankruptcy of many per son who have embarked their fortunes with a confident belief that no sudden chan would take place ho stated thai the expensive voyage to canada and the high rate of wage to labourers and sea raoo put it out of the power of the canada raetchaot to compete with the baltic trade unless some protection is afforded he eootended that tho importance of this trade to the empire ought to induce hi majesty government to listen with cau tion to representation which would drive 700 ship out of a trade that employs thou- aoda of british seamen and cause the consumption of van quantities of the ma nufactures of our countrymen nod thereby jive employment to foreikners another advantage of tho trade with canada he thought to he the mcaos of removing vast number ef emigrants to the colony who could not leave home but fur the cheap pas sages afforded by the ships arriving at que boc in ballast these persons become r- pectable settlers and thcrchj relieved the natioo of a most serious burthen it had been argued that the lumber trade was in injury to the country as it diverted the far mer from agricultural pursuits but this opinion he could by no means agree to the thousands of persons employed in that business consume vast quuuuue of ttiu flour and pork sent from the western part of the province and arethe means of iu- traducingao extensive circulation of mo ney which could not otherwise exist he thought akn that the timber was injured materially by the duty of one peony per foot on all timber of a certain description which i cut from the waste lands of the crowu this he thought ought not to bo exacted as it operated as a direct tax on the raw material and was as injurious ns if it met a duiy in the home market- he- ide he knew of no advantage derived from it collection for the public were kept in total iguorance of its application here mr morris rend hi resolutions as follows resolved that h the latest accounts from england the imperial parliament eouteinplate sotno alteration and reduction ii the present duties on timber and deal imported iutu great britain and irclaud from the north of europe resolved that the timber trade nf up per and lower canada in consequence of the protecting duty imposed on timber im ported iuto great britain from the north of euroc ha oflate years induced capt talits tv invest large tuni of money iu the construction of expensive sawmills and other works necessary to eusore a regular anil extensive supply of all kind of timber deals and staves fur the british and west india markets revived thai any material dimiou lion of the duties will probably exclude ca- aida timber from consumption iu the bri tish market to consequence of tho exten sive vnyitet iu north america aiul tin higher rate of wages paid for labor iu these colonics as well as its british seameo hushvcd that the employment of ma ny hundred ships mauned with british sub jects is h iijrlf h consideration which in the opinion of this comtnitteo ought to induce the imperial parliament to conti- nue a regulation to important to tho wet fare of hi majestys north american co- ionics nod the shipping interest of the empire especially as the nature of that trade euables the colunists to consume vast quantities of the manufactures of the mother country while at lh same the re- dundant papulation of the kingdom fiud au easy method of being conveyed to a country where industrious families have a ccrtrtin opportunity of earning a livelihood and thus relieve the uaiiuo of a most alarm ing hurthen besides the expense of their removal as a national measure resolved that beside the long and expensive voyage ami the high rate of wa ge which operate so injuriously against the canaihau timber the recent regula tion which impote a duty of one penny per foot ou timber rti from the waste land f the crown in this province is not the least of the many decncouragements which fet ter and blight fhtj efforu of those who pro secute this interetiug trade resolved that an humble address be presented to his majesty in pursuance of the foregoing resolutions and beseeching hi majesty to continue such duty on tim ber imported iuto great britain from the oorlh of europe as may he thought ttoffiri- ent to protect te tim her trade of his majesty faithful canadian subjects ami also tu remit tho duty flintgod on
