INDUSTRIAL DEPRESSION AND I ITS CAUSES. I Under this heading, Mr George Potter has addressed a letter to the Times, in the course of which he says :— The letter which you formerly inserted for me upon the above subject has brought me many letters from all parts of the country, nearly all of them confirming the fact that the present depres- sion of trade is of an alarming and serious character, aiid is causing great uneasiness and apprehension. In the shipping trade things grow worse. In the port of Liverpool there are now laid up 44 steam vessels, representing a ton- nage of 69,000 tons, as against ten, representing a tonnage of 18,000 tons, at the corres- ponding period of last year, thus showing an increase of 34 rteamers and 51,000 tonnage laid up in these docks. The distress among the Liverpool seamen and dock labourers is very acute. The Trades Council of Liverpool, which consists of delegates from nearly every dustry in the town, lately held a special meeting to consider the cause of the depression, and after full deliberation passed the following resolution, expressing the opinion that the causes were :— First, the impetus given to Production by the inven- tion of machinery séconùly, the enormous amount of wealth in the hands of capitalists, who, in the endea- vour to enrich themselves, stimulate production to its ¡ utmost extent, thereby glutting the warket thirdly, the anomalous state of the land laws, which prevent the production of the necessaries of life, and necessi- tate the payment of 150 millions per annum to foreigners. Other towns have passed resolutions of a similar character.
