tends, by the charter, to the Straits of Magellan, full two thirds of the terraqueous globe; it embraces the whole empire of China, with its two hundred millions of population, and takes in one half at least of the continent of America; Banca and China are therefore India. But then, what has tin to do with ship-building? why nothing; but very inuch to do with the present bill. Indeed, we should not be surprised if it be the means of throwing it out altogether. Already we have little doubt the cry has been raised through all Cornwall — there is tin in Banca ;'-nay, the island of Anglesea has learnt with horror, that there is copper in South America. A skilful tactician always takes care to create an alarm in those interests which it is necessary to bring over to his view of any question--in the present instance, we find a direct attempt to alarm the landed interest, by holding out a reduction in the price of oak timber, in consequence of using teak--and the mining interests of Wales and Cornwall, by the discovery that the

ese prefer thetin of Banca, and that the Hindous may pro cure copper from South America.'

Our observations have been extended to so great a length that we are not sorry to be relieved from

any
discussion on that part

of the question, 'how far a restriction should be imposed upon the introduction of India-built shipping, as a question between this country and her foreign possessions, as Mr. Adolphus has not only declared his aversion from entering into discussions of this kind, but has waved them altogether. For the same reason we gladly forbear combating the notions that some of the directors seem to entertain

with regard to the colonization of India; for the writer of the Remarks' talks of that event being accelerated, one does not exactly see how, by the building of teak ships, and refers to some excellent letter of the Court of Directors on the subject; yet as no evidence was brought forward on this point, and the learned counsel, in summing up, has abstained from it altogether, we most willingly follow his example. We may observe, how ever, that if the population of our happy and prosperous island goes on increasing as it has done in the last half century, the time cannot be very distant when it may be thought wise policy to encourage emigration by a bounty; and it may then become a question to what part of the world it will be most expedient to allow the superfluous population to expatriate themselves.

We now take leave, we hope for ever, of the present question, and of the ship-builders of the Thames; and while we most heartily wish them and their establishments all possible success, we as earnestly hope that none of them in future will ever be employed to build ships of the line for His Majesty's service.
