TRANSMITTED TO THE DEPARTMENT BY CONSUL-GENERAL STANTON, OF ST.

PETERSBURG.

I have the honor to transmit herewith a copy of the new Russian tariff' which came into force on the 15th of July, 1882. The translation is by Edward C. Froom, esq., and is said to be very correct.

In connection herewith it may be said that this new tariff has greatly reduced the “free list” and largely increased the duties generally.

EDGAR STANTON,

Consul-General. UNITED STATES CONSULATE-GENERAL,

St. Petersburg, August 30, 1882.

TARIFF OF CUSTOMS DUTIES LEVIED IN THE EMPIRE OF RUSSIA FROM

THE 1ST (13TH) JULY, 1882. .

(Translated by EDWARD C. FROom from the official Russian.] *

NOTE BY THE TRANSLATOR.

The following tariff is, as nearly as possible, a translation of the Russian original, with all the changes and corrections which have been made, up to the 1st (13th) July.

In the conversion of the Russian values and measures into Euglish, every care has been taken to insure correctness.

The duty in Russia has to be paid in gold; thus, in converting the Russian values in these tables into English equivalents, the rouble has been taken at 38d, metallic, to give a sterling value.

This tariff came into force on the 1st (13th) July, 1882.

1 rouble (100 cop.)=38d.; 1 pood=36.08 pounds; 1 pound (Russ.) = 14.43 oz. avoir.; 1 arshin=28 inches.

N. B.-Poisons and strong reagents can be imported only by persons who have a license to trade in them.
