COALS AND COKE. A Parliamentary Paper of importance has been just L piinted, containing an account of all dues, duties, and taxes, local and imperial, levied 011 the importation and ea- i portation of coals and coke in any part of the Uni'ed King- dom, in each of the years 1851 and 1852; and also a similar re'urn of dues and taxes on all coals and coke i brought by railway to any port, town, or city of the United r Kingdom for the same period, in continuation of Parlia- mentary Paper, No 689, of session 1851. As the interest 1 in the several returns under the first head is peculiarly r 'ocal, we must refer those who feel interes'ed in any par- ticular locality to the document itself; but we cannot avoid noticing in general terms, the great disproportion wtJith the local and municipal dues collected in certain placet present, when contrasted with those cofectcd in others. The total "mount returned as levied on the exportation of coals and coke from the ports of the United Kingdom, so far as can be ascertained from the returns, appears to be as foHows 1851, £48,483 12s lOd 1852, £47 291 19s 2d. The total amount of local dues on coals and coke brought by railway into the ports of the United Kingdom during tie same years are thus returned :-1851 £17533 4s 7d 1252, £26,516 16s 5d. The total amount of local dues collected in the port of London on coaLt brought by ayron enn^nt0J,laVeA bf;en-l«51, £ 12,227 19s 6d m? U ? 1^1 we ™ay anticipate that this Will be greatly increased during the present year.
