MONTHLY COMMERCIAL REPORT. · BRITISH TRADE AND MANUFACTURE9. The failures of several houses of the very first respectability, both at London and in different provincial towns of Great Britain, have, within the last n.onth, been unprecedented in number and importance A West India breker, who has long been considered the first in bis line, was, we are told, the prime cause of the stoppage of a banking house, whose credit was previously unimpeached. The several banks in the country, connected with the London liouse, of course shared its fate, and from them the evil spread to merchanis, manufacturers, traders, and in short to the very servanca and dependants of these, numbers of whom are throwii out of employment, and their families deprived of bread. Speculations in Spanish wool, an article which has fallen about 50 per cent, are considered as the origin of those unlooked for disasters. Five Manchesterhouses have stopped payment in the city, and we are sorry to add, have involved numerous industrious persons, both in town and country, in their ruin. The demands upon the five houses are said to amount to two MILLIONS; but it is supposed that their real property will ultimately cover all deficiencies. Speculative exports to South America are the rock upon which these houses have split. In consequence of these unexpected events, public creo dit is at the present moment as low as ever it has been in the memory of man; the fluctuation of price in the money market is unprecedented, and the depression so considerable, that omnium is fallen to 25 per cent. discount. We understand that some respectable mer. chants bave waited upon the bank directors in order to solicit their aid towards the allevi. ation of the burthens with which our internal commerce is at present borne down. The fesult of this application is not as yet publicly known; we trust it will prove favourable. The renewal of our intercourse with the United States of America has in some sort henefited the manufacturing interests; but this felicitous effect is almost swallowed up in the vortex of those calamities which it has been our painful duty to record.

EAST INDIES.-- We turn with a certain sensation of pleasure from the foregoing to the present head of our report ; under which we have the satisfaction to announce the safe arri. val of the following vessels, on account of the East India Company, viz. The Carnatic, Lord Castlereagh, Walthamstow, Lord Melville, Lord Duncan, Metcalf, Henry Addington, Devonshire, Ocean, Tottenham, Retreat, and the Penang frigate, from Bengal; the Baring, Lady Castlereagh, Castle Eden, Surrey, and Marquis Wellesley, from Bengal and Fort St. George; the Dover Castle, Marchioness of Exeter, Europe, Devaynes, Northampton, and Voion, from Bombay; and the Streatham, from the Cape of Good Hope. The cargoes consist of the following compodities. Bengal piece goods : muslins, 34,574; calicoes, 72,924; and prohibited goods, including muslins, calicoes, silk and cotton hanaksrchiefs, &c. 121,486 pieces. Madras piece goods : calicoes, 217,545; muslins, 2,690, prohibited goods, 46, 460 pieces Bombay piece goods: calicoes and muslins, 93,327 pieces. Company's Drugs, 66.. saltpetre, 131,400cwt., raw silk, 263,939; coton, 17,167 bales; hemp, 166 ditto ; pepper, 2,181 bags; cinnamon, 3,911 bales; sugar, 2,124 bags ; cochineal, 9,40016 ; opiuin, 4000 ditto; barilla, 1,036 bags; Tinnevelly spices, 59 packages; Keemoo shells, 48 packages; rope, 5 coils; carpets, 5 bales; Bamboo machinery, 1 box, hemp, (on account of government,) 10,917 bales. Privilege Drugs, &c.indigo, 1,569 boxes and chests; cotton, 1,925 bales; raw silk, 103 ditto; shellac, 20 boxes ; sticklac, 2 ditto; lac lake, 188 ditto; gum animi, 5 ditco; gum assafætida, 16 ditto; olibanum, 16 dicto; mastich, 4 ditto; cama phor, 243 ditto; sadlower, 147 ditto ; lac bolor, 15 ditto; blue galls, 119 bags; gall-nuis, 60 ditto; munjeet, 41 bags ; castor-oil and dry ginger, 170 boxes ; star anniseed, 33 ditto; nu(megs and cloves, 5 ditto; books, 2 ditto; bandannoes, 5 chests ; saffron, 3 bitco. Besides several other parcels of goods, the particulars whereof are not yet known. From the advices brougbe home by the fleet we learn, that in consequence of the rains not having set in til August last, the crops of indigo throughout the district of Benares were very short, that there will not be one-third of last year's produce, and that the manufacture of the artidle will cost 60 per cent more. This is unpleasing intelligence, for, as we observed in a, former report, the East India indigo becomes daily more valuable. The statement of the cargoes has occupied so large a share of our limits, that we can only quote che prices of a few of the East India and Chinese goods. Bohea tea fetches from is 8d. 10 28. 10. congou, from 3s. Sd. to 3s. 8d, j and hyson, from 3s, 6d. 60 55. 60. per Ib. Hemp, 501. to 601.
