I have the honor to inclose herewith a list of duties on articles of French origin or manufacture imported into Italy as established by the treaty of commerce concluded between Italy and France November 3, 1881, and put in force the 16th ultimo.

The duties on articles exported from Italy to France, prescribed by the fourth article of the treaty, are also contained in this list, though they do not differ from the Italian export duties previously existing.

In my dispatch No. 46, of the 11th of March last, I inclosed to the Department a schedule embracing the duties on imports into Italy both under the Italian general tariff and the treaty concluded between Italy and Austria-Hungary December 27, 1878.*

That schedule, together with the list herewith inclosed, comprehends the whole régime of Italian import and export duties.
