An Irishaman's reception in London; or, The adventures of two days and a night. [electronic resource] : The necessity of supporting the exigencies of the state should be impressed on every mind.- much clamour, and perhaps, justly, has been excited, against the shop-tax; as not less partial in operation than oppressive in collection, to the retail traders and shop keepers of London. A mode now is suggested of a substitute for that tax; or, If the pressure of the times will not suffer the premier to abandon an established tax, the chancellor of the Exchequer is now enabled to raise annually and that without the expence of a single new office, by a mode no less productive to the treasury of the nation, than promoting decency, and enforcing law among stock-jobbers and stock-brokers, well as preserving the morals of the most useful part of the community, the faithful domestic and industrious mechanic. By J. Magee, licensed lottery-office-keeper, in Great Britain and Ireland.
