It is the boast of the partizans of the late minister, William Pitt, that the Commerce of England was doubled during his administration. When he became minister, the interest of the National Debt (paid annually out of the taxes) amounied to something more than nine millions of pounds sterling ; and, at the close of his administration, it amounted to more than twenty four millions of pounds sterling --During his administration, he added five-fold to the Assessed Taxes; be created the Income Tax; and, by what is called the land Tax Redemption Act, he made that tax perperual, and caused the alienation for rives of a considerable part of the property of the Church and of all charitable foundations. During the year after be became minister (1783) the money paid on account of the Poor, in England and Wales, amounted to 2,004,238 pounds, the average price of the quartern loaf in that year, being sixpenæ three farchings; and, during the year 1803 (two years before the end of his career), the money paid on account of the loor, in England and Wales, amounted to 4,267,965 pounds, the average price of the quartein loaf, in that year, being vinepence farthing. -During his a ministration, the pct of “ Habeas Corpus," or personal-safety act, was suspended for several years together. When he died, in January, 1806, the parliament came to an unanimous decision to cause his Dcbes, to the amount of 40,000 pounds, to be paid out of taxes raised upon the people; and, further, caused him to be buried at the public expense, and voted a monument in honour of his memory, in Westminster Abbey Church, also at the public expense, and that too, upon the ground of the services wbich he had rendered the county. 1)
