(Circular 10 Collectors, Varal Officers, and Surreyors ]

Treasury Department, Comptroller's Office, Dec, 26th, 1835. Sir :-As some diversity of practice may obtain in relation to the manner of deducting the one tenth part of the excess of duties in all those cases in wnich the duties on goods inported from and after the thirty-first of the cur. rest mouth shall exceed twenty per centuai on the value thereof, and as to ühe manner of ascertaining whether the specific rates of duty imposed by the existing laws exceed, or fall short of, twenty per centum on the value thereot, it is deemed proper, in reference to the act of 20 March, 1833, entitled *** An act to mouily, the act of 14th July, 1832, and all other acts inpusiug uuties on imports," to communicate the following views upon these several points:

Supposing the dutiable value of goods, now liable to an 'ad valore a dury of 25 per cent., to be $500 00, the duty thereon, at that rate, would be $125 00 But the duty thereon at the rate of 20 per centum, would only be 100 00

Excess, One tenth partof such excess is 82 50, which being deducted from $125 00 leaves the sun of $122 50 as the amount of duty to be paid in the case.

Or Thus: Deduci one senth part of the excess of 5 per cent., suy one hall per ceut., from 25 per cent, and there remains 24 per cent., which rate on $300, produces $122 50, as in the preceding example;

[ocr errors]

In relauon to the specific rales, it will be supposed that an importation of four hundred pouds of sugar be made, ine duy on which, at the existing rare of 2 cents per pound, would be

$ 10 00 The mvoice and correct value of the sugar will be supposed to be $6 00 per one hundred pounds, making the value of the four hundred pounds to be

$24 00 To which aud dutiable charges,

2 00

$ 26 00

The duty on $26 00 at twenty per cent., would be

$ 5 20 Excess of the specific over the ad valorem duly,

$ 4 80 One tenth part of the excess is forty-eight cents, which being devucted from $10.00, the amonnt of duty at the specific rate, leaves $9 52 as the amoun of duty to be paid in the case.

With a view to facilitate the transactions at the custom-houses the form or an entry to be made by an imorter of goods is subjuined hereto, and forms of the following returns will be vansnitted as early as it will be practicable to prepare them :

1 Form of the quarter-yearly abstracts, to be rendered by the Collectors, of goods paying ad valorem duties.

2. Similar abstract of goods now liable to specific rates of duty. 3. form of a bond account.

From the item of forty bales of blue cottons, in the form of the importer's entry, it will be perceived that, in conformity with the decision of Mr. Secretary McLane, in his circular to the officers of the customs, under date of the 201h April last, the calculation is madı: on the actual or l'eat foreign cost ur value, instead of the assumrd value, under the ininimum principle.

In acordance with the usual practice of this office, I avail myself of the occasion also lo conmunicate the decisions which have been made since the last circular, in relation to the following questions :

The act of the 14th July, 1832, in imposing duties on blankets, not defining the particular sizes, has given rise to sunie difficulty in their classification ;those the cost of which does not exceed seventy-five cente eacht, berrig entitied to an entry at an ad valorem duty of 5 per cent., whilst those costing more ihan seventy-five cents each, are made liable to an ad valorem duiy ol 12, per cent.

Under these circumstances it has been deemed the more advisable course, instead of prescribing by a Treasury regulation wiat size an article shall bor

to constituie it a blanket within the meaning and intention of the law, to leave that point to be determined by mercantile usage and customi, ker ping in view that the gcods must be of such sizes as will render them suitable for the common and general purposes for which blankets are used.

Io relai.on to bonds given on the exporiation of goods for the benefit of drawback, it is deemed proper to direct that, in future they be noi cancelled until after the expiration of the time allowed by the 81st section of the Cold llection law, os 210 March, 1799, for the produciion of the prescribed proofs of landing abroail, although such proofs my be produced before the expiration of such time

In relation to the following articles, it has been decided,

1. That bootakins oi bootees, having what is calied a hosiery top attached to a leather sole, are now liable to $1 50 per pair. 2. That bags made of linen are now liable to an ad valorem duty of 25 per

" manufactures of hemp or flax." 3. That gunny o grass bags are free of duty.

4. Thar cast iron stays or studs, (so called,) lised in making chain cables, are now liable to 3 cents per pound, as parts of iron cables, manufactured in whole or in part.

5. That liks, manufactured in whole or in part, suitable for chain cables, are also now liable to 3 cenis per pound.


[ocr errors]

6. That chain or warp, made of tow, for manufacturing carpets or carpe.. Jing, is now liable to 25 per cent ad valorem,

7, That floss silk, or tram, is entitled to an entry at an ad valorem duty or 5 per cent.

8. That cam lets, composed entireiy of goat or camel's hair, are free of duty. 9. That haliers, for horses, made of sizal grass, are free of duty

10. That round iron, for axles for cars on rail roads and locomotive ei. gines, are not entitled to the benefit of the act of 14th July, 1832, in relation lo iron for rail roads or inclined planes.

11. That all those linens which are specified in the 3rd paragraph of the circular of the 121h of August last, imported after the 31st of the current month, will be entitled to an exemption from duty.

12. That marrow is free of duty.

13 That men's hats, made of silk plush, are now liable to an ad valorem du y of 30 per cent.

14 Thai anticorrosive lithic paint being a compound of lead and carbonate of lime or stone, is liable to 15 per cent. as a "manufacture of lead, not other. wise specified, or of which lead is a component material.".

15. That shawls of worsted, embroidered with silk thread, having been deci. ded to be now entitled to an entry at an ad valorem duty of 10 per centa, will be free after the 31st of the current month.

16 That stei eotype plates are now liable to an ad valorem duty of 25 p cent.

17. That stretchers, for umbrellas, completely manufactured are now liable to an ad valorem duty of 25 per centum

18. That tips and tops, of bone, for canes and umbrellas, are free of duty.

19. That an article called tinsel stuff, is now liable to an ad valorem dury of 25 per cent

20. That worsted stuff goods, being embroidered with worsted yarn, does not affrci their classification.

21. That webbing, composed of cotton and gum elastic, is now liable to 25 per Icent.

22. That an article called "pyrolignite of lead," composed of acetic acid, fle id, and empyrumatic oil, being, in fact, an impure sugar of lead, is hable fro the duty imposed on sugar of lead.

(Circular.) Treasury Department, Comptroller's Office, Jan. 15, 1834. SIR :-In giving the instructions in the circular of the 26th ultimo, in rela tion to the item of 40 hales of blue cotton cloihs, I was under the impression that, according to the views expressed by the Secretary of the Treasury, in his circular of 2012 April, 1833, the recuetion of duties provided for by the act of 2d March, 1833, was to be ascertained by calculating the duty of 25 per cent. imposed by the act of 14th July, 1832, on the actual or real value of this description of goods, instead of the minimum, or assumed, or artificia' value of 35 cents per square yard, when costing less than ihat sum

The Secretary of the Treasury has, however, decided, that such was not the intention of the circular of "ibe 2016 April, 1833, and has direried thal the duty of 23 per cent. imposed by the act of the 14th July, 1832, is to be calculated on the minimum principle, or assiimed value of such goods; and that be duty of 20 per cent. under the act of 20 March, 1833, is io, be estimated on the real or actual foreign cost or value of such goods-he difference beween the two amounts thus produced constituting the excess upon which thru one-tenth is to be deducted.

You will, accordingly, be pleased to make the alterations, and additions, in relation 10 the item of 40 bales of blue cotton cloths in the form of the im. porter's entry, subjoining to the circular from this office of the 26th uliino, in the nuanner specified in the accompanying statement
