Flour, whether of wheal or oiiti>, is subject to dut'es
proportioned to the above-mentioned duties on grain. In
this respect also our North American colonies have a pre-
ference, which to them is a point of considerable import-
ance, since the shipments on the opposite shore of the
Atlantic take i)lace more frequently in the shaj)e of flour
than of grain.
