Commercial Compromise-

The Commercial Compromise allowed Congress to regulate interstate and foreign commerce; including placing tariffs (taxes) on foreign imports, but it prohibited placing taxes on any exports. This is because the northern states wanted the central government to regulate interstate commerce and foreign trade. The South was afraid that export taxes would be put on agricultural products such as tobacco and rice.

Slave Trade Compromise-

When the Founding Fathers were writing the US Constitution, they came across the issue of slavery. They decided that it would remain legal until 1808, 20 years later. Basically, they were saying "Screw it! Lets not waste our time trying to entirely outlaw slavery or not; we've got better things to get on to. Let the politicians 20 years for now deal with the problem."
