At present Bohea tea pays a duty of 12 cents a pound, while all other black teas pays 25 cents. The great difference in the duty paid by these kinds of teas, and the difficulty in disiin - guibiug but ween them, have, it i believed, led to the commission of frauds upon the revenue, by importing under the name of Bohea, every ircie of black lea. A the whole of these teas, in common with Bohea, have grown into gcueral use among the poorer classes of Ihe community, the propriety of considering them all to be of the same class for the purpose of duties, and of laying upon them, eighteen rents a pound, instead of the duties now imposed, is respectfully suggasted. By the present tariff, Madeira, Burgundy, Champaign, Rhenish, and Tokay w ines, pay 100 cents a gallon, and Sherry and AX Lucar, 60 All other wine when imported in bottles or cases, pay 70 cents a g - .illon. This last duty principally afl'ects the claret wines of France, which, at the principal port of shijv ment, do not generally cost 10 emu a gallon. A small portion, however, of these wines, sell a high in, as Madeira wine in the United Mates. The small quantity of this quality of wine produced in France, and the great demand for it, produced by thenecessary supdIv for the tables of the neb in that ami the neigtibot ing countries, will never admit of anv conmaiTaDie imporiauon ui u muonc w mtcd states, lo aeeernuiie inc ui u(i claret, with a view to ihisi inconside able por tion of it. does, not appear to be judicious Considering the cheapness of Uie co - nmoti clarets, and Uie sjluty e.Tect produced by them, compared with mot Oiher wines, the expediency of reducing the duty o a more reasonable proportion to the cost of the" snicle, .. rpsnectfnllvMir. - esterl A d ity of30cenU a gallon upon all claret imported in boUiM, or of li cents w uen im:it ted in any other manner, would be higher Uian thed ity now imposed upon Madeira w'nul ia proportion lo their respective cost. Smuggling, by the introduction of articles clandestine and without entry, is principally confined lo the eastern section of tlie sea const ; to points of the coast bordering on east and west rionua, io the coast west oi urn nioutn oi uie Mississippi river, and to the inland frontier. The vigilance of the custom houses with Uie aid of revenue cutters and of some additional provisions which have been suggested ty experience, will be sufficient to repress practices of this kind, which are necessarily resorted to, only by r - uii. iu uieraiecircuuisiances, ana consequently, are carried on upon a coutracted scuta, com - pareu wnn tne great muss tr lnqior'ation into the country. Tne multiplication of small pot1' of entry in the Cliesnpeake Bay has Probably, and oertainly according lo public opinion, given rise to more smuggling than any advantage lairly resulting to the inhabitants ol those poits trout their establishment, will compensate. As a measure well calculated to aid in tepressing this kind of smuggling, it is proposeil to nuthonze the commanders of the revenue cutters to require the production of the mam tests of the cargo oi all vessels hoarded by them, when an officer of the customs is not present, and that they may be empowered to perform all acts which an inspector or other revenue officer would he permitted to pt - riorm. in relation to the manifests to produced. It it also respectfully suggested, that provision be made for requiring of all pilots licensed under the state laws, to report under the sanction vt an oath, every vessel piloted by them into any port or placs, to the collector of the port to which they belong, as well as to the rniieelor of it ems trict into which the vessel is piloted within after such vessel is conducted to its place of des tinution. On failure to ronmlv with this urovi noil, lo be fined dollars or imprisoned months, aim upon second conviction ol the same oflence, to be rendered incapable ol exercingthe (unctions of pilot, in addition to the penalties prescribed for the first offence ; or the pilots might be tworn not to pilot any vesstl arriving Irom any fomign port, into any other Jian a port oi entry, and bonus migni i required io tnat t i feet. The difficulties which have been experienced fn the execution of the commercial convention betwf en this country and Great Britain, lesull ing Irom the entire independence of this class ol men, ol tlie laws ol the Union regulating lor eign commerce , and which have produced serious reclamations on the part of the British go vernment, may suggest the propriety of extend ing the authority ol the federal government over them, still further than the safety of tlie revenue may require, More effectually to guard against smuggling upon our inland frontier, it is necessary that pro visions of the following nature be adopted 1. That all boats, skilfe, and other craft of every size aud description, be compelled to enter and clear in all the waters bordcr'ng upon the Rrilidi possessions, and that for every violation of Ihis provision, and for unloading without su li entry, the boat, skin, or era II, with tackle, rigging, and cargo to be forfeited. 2. That every wagon, sleigh, or nny oilier vehicle, in which gooods are found subject to duty which have not keen entered, shall, with the team by which they are respectively drawn, together with the goods, be forleited, and the party shall, moreaver, forfeit and pay double the value of siM - h goods. 3. 1 hat it rhall be lawful for any person im porting foreign merchandise by land from the British dominions in America, to enter such goods at the office of the nearest deputy collector, to the road by which they are imported, and in all cases where goods to imported, shall be found not being entered after having aiMd by such of fice, they shall be liable to seizure and coudem nation, as being illegally imported. Upon thewho!e of our inland frontier, border' in upon thf Brilith iwsessinns, an impression generally prevails, that iiijuslice it suffered by the inhabitants, from being subjected to a hiirhe rate of duty upon all merchandise ioiportod from these possessions, than is paid by that portion of their fallow citizens who receive their supply ol foreign merchandise from (he AtinnUn urU - 1 his impression has enlisted tho feeling and sympathies of the people, in favor ol the illicit introduction of foreign merchandise, by which Ihe revenue is greatly dclraudcd, In proportion lo the imiwrlatioui made from the British pot - sessions. I ho lost ol the revenue, however, is but a secondary object in the consideration of this subject. The influence whic h the rootiou ation of this ttate of public feeling, must neces sarily have in corrupting our citizens, and pro ducing an habitual disrespect for the laws, de mandj the peculiar attention of the legislature If the inequality in the contributions paid by the consumers of merchandise imported Irom Cana da, can be destroyed, there is just reason to be lieve, that public opinion will, upoa that fron tier be enlisted on the side of the laws, and that smuggling will be considered as disgraceful there as on the Allautic coast, It is, therefore, resctful1y submitted whether it is not expedient to provide t hat in all ears of imiiortatjons into thn United States, irom Quebec, Montreal, or any other commercial town in the British territories, the duties shall be estimated upon the cost of the articles at the place of original purchase, under tlie following regulations, vit : 1. The merchant from wliom the goods are bought in the British dominions shall, before the mayor of the city, or a Judje of a court of record, and in the pretence of the purchaser and importer into the United Mates, produce a cn,y of the original invoice aud swear that it contain an accurate statement of the price given Ibr the goods described in tlicir then ttate of manufac ture. 2. The Importer into the United State shall produce the copy of the original invoice so veri fied, also a copy of Uie invoices of Uie goods pur chased by him, accurately exhibiting the cur rent value of the said articles at the place of mrrhase, and which has been paid, and shall upon oath declare, to the correctors of the lat er, aud that tne lormer was vcn&ed in bis pre - seuce. The adopt'on of regulations of this kind it it believed, will effectually guard the revenue a - gaiut bauds and evasions arising fioin attempts to enter merchandise below its real cost, and may have the happiest effect in discountenancing smuggling of the most flagrant character, and in restoring public opinion upon this impor tant subject lo a sound and healthful state. The district of Chamnlain exteuds Irom me shores of Lake Champlain lo the river St. Lawrence. The waters f illing into the former, are separated from those falling into the latter, by a mountainous range which, in great measure insulates the one from the other. , It it therefore deemed expedient to form a - nother collection district of that part or the Champlain district which lies west of that range, incleding Uie northern part of the district of which Odeusburg is Uie port ol eutry. From information obtained from the gentle men who traversed the lake during the summer AitJ autumn of 1816, a tar at Lake Superior, for the puniore of determining the bonndarir ot the United State, according lo the provisions of 'he treaty of Ghent, H is believed that the puV lic interest requires, that a collection district should be formed, comprehending the shores and waters ot that pkrt of Lake Superior lyi'.g wilb - iu the United Slates, and Uie western shore of I.aktHuTw; the port of entry of the district to he the fal'.s of SU Mary, on the water Mtnou t. teat ion between thoee laket - A aot her collection district also appears to be necessary in the western et'muitf of the ttate of Louisiana Tb - t sec ion of ll - roi otry bat lately been tl sr ene of Uie tnott active ttnacslmg, 't - peciallylo Afrisn slaves from Gatyestowa. Al - though the suppression of that establishment mar for tome lime clieck the smuggling practices nhicfi have been carried on in that quarter, yet there i just ground to apprehend, that thty will be resumed from other points of Uie tame coast, unlets suitable measures of prevention are adorn - . ed. . . The act of 1799, in the 6ftth section. Gxes the tare which shall be allewed upon packages, cask ing specific duties. The enumeration, however, it, by practice, found to be imperfect. The defects have been supplied by regulation, which is . win, .m.u, uui ulC OI,ICV iO, - . probably not tmilorm in all the parts. The state ment a. hereto annexed, presents a list oi the principn.1 items embraced by those regulations. The act of the 27Ui March, 1804, wmch im poses specinc ounes upon a great variety ei article! which belbre paid ad valorem duties, has made no provision for ascertaining the tare of such articles, when imported in packages, caiks, Ac. Statement B. contains an enumeration of" those articles, with the tare allowed by regula tion. The propriety of establishing those rates hy law, is retpectiully suggested. Under the i.avigation act, vessels rznpinyen in the coasting trade are subject to a duty ol fifty cents, unless the rflicert and three - lourtht oi me crewt are American citizens, j nit uuit it to be paid upon every voyage by registered vessels, and ouce a year by licensed vet els. Tho proof it to he made by the collector, to whom the duty it pavahle. This proof it much more easily made nt the port to which the vessel belong, than at the port to which it it bound It teems, therefore, to beexcdient that the proof oi citizenship snouin ne teuiieieo to ine coikrior of the port from whence Uie vessel tails. The certificate ol the collector should be considered a satislactory evidence by the collector ol the port to which the vessel it bound, unlet where the contrary should be made to apjienr. Every change, in the officers or crew, should be certified by Uie collector of the port where tuch change it made. It it only by recording inch, changes, as they occur, and certifying the character of the crew at often as they happen, that it it possible for a licensed vessel to exempt lttell' from the pay ment ol fiity centi per ton. The act of 1793, lor rcgittering and Keen, bing vessels, It considered defective, by reason of not defining, with sufficient accuracy, the condition upon which the bonds shall be forfeited. It is understood that the courts have declared them void. , ' The bond for delivering - the register of a vessel, told to foreigners, does not fix the time within which the register shall be surrendered, and is, therefore, generally nugatory. There is no remedy against the discharge of American seamen in foreign ports, where the vessel is sold If the bond should embrace Uiis ob ject, and should be forfeited in six months tf - , t . - . , i . i ? i i. ter i nc ttie oi tne vessel, u me register tiiuuiu not be delivered within that time, where the sale was made in Europe, and twelve, in countries beyond the Cape of Cood Hope, the ob ject contemplated by requiring the bond,' might be secured, ine parly might be per - milled to send the sailors home at his own expense, and avoid the penalty of the bond, to far as Uiat condition was concerned. The forfeiture of four hundi ed dollars, for departing from a port to which a vtssel lias cleared, and in which it has arrived, without entering, it believed to be inadequate to the object. . , I he act of congress, intended to secure to the United States a priority over individual creditors, iu the recovery of debts, in all cases of the insolvency of its debtors, has been found to be inadequate te the object for which it was enacted. 1'hit hat arisen, io some degree, from tha provisions of some of the state laws, by which" liens are tbtained, by taking out attachments, which are levied upon theprojierty of their debtors, when upon the brink of insolvency, or immediately after tuch insolvency is known. At no doubt it entertaiucd of the justice and propriety ol securing this legal priority, in all cases counei led with the revenue, or with the tenure hy which offices are held under Ihe Uni ted Stater, the expediemy. of revising the at t M.l.l.n I. tl.! - in mvln fr, rlnlr if '..1. fectual, is respectfully suggested. It may be proper, in closing this report, to bring into view subjects, which, though lint strictly embraced by the resolution, may he con - , sidered as fairly iwideutsl to it. Among there may be mentioned the inconvenience and loss to which Uie treasury is subjected, by sofleriug, in particular states, landed property to be set or to the United Slfites, upon apprniiements, in discharge of debts, ari - ing from custom - house bonds. The property is always appraised fur more mail it will tell ; it has, therefore, been generally retained, with a view to realize the sum at which it has been received. In the mean time, for lh want of proper agents, or indeed agents of any kind, it remains uot only unproductive, but ge nerally becomes lest valuable. This principle seems to have been adopted from a respec t to Ihe state laws. Its inequality is, however, a suf ficient argument against itt continuation, independent of the lots which the treasury suffers from it. In some of Uie states, where Uie United States are subjected lo this inconvenience, the states have taken better care ol their own interests, by exc epting them from the - operation, of it. If the law, in this regard, is not changed, t will be necessary to authorize the appointment of agents in those ttalet, to take charge of the real property of which the United Slates are already, or may hereafter, become the owners or else it will be necessary to make sale of them. with as little delay as possible, without regard to the loss which may lie incurred. If it is judged expedient to legilafe upon the subject, it inay be proper to authorise the tale ol those lands by the marshal, with the owers io make lilies to the purchaser. Under the existing laws the practice is, for the secretary of Uie tre&rurv to execute the titles. Sliould the principal provisions wlucli are re - , commended be adopted, the iuifioriance bl pub lic warehouses will be greatly increase.!. The appropriabon which was niaua lor mat. object, in Uie year 181U, was applied, by tbe l .i.rrfarr of the treasury, to the purchase of custom - houses and warehouses, in Boston, New - York and I'hUadclphia.
