On Friday a public sale of 355 hhds. 20 barrels Muscovades were brought forward ; the middling and good qualities went off with inuch briskness; low browns sold heavily at a farther reduction ; middling Tortola sold freely at 65s. to 68s., Trinidad 66s. to 68s., good St Lucia 64s. to 60s. The refined market has also become heavy, and purchases can be made lower in that and in foreign and East India sugars. Molasses are in brisk demand at 32s. Cotton. – There has been lately an extensive demand for Pernambuco cotton and Bengals for exportation. For the lat. ter 6d. would readily be given for fair shipping quality, but the holders decline selling. There are, in consequence, no parcels in the market.

Coffee. The market of Britain, not withstanding a recent improvement in the prices at Antwerp and in Holland, remains in a depressed state, and the prices are in a great degree nominal. Rum.- This article is also heavy in the market, and the prices, in consequence, nominal.

Tobacco.—The deliveries of tobacco fronı the warehouses during the last month have been considerable; 1322 hhds. for exportation, 455 hhds. for home consumption. The stock is in consequence decreasing, and no prospect of further supplies for some time. The demand for tobacco, however, contipues limited, and several parcels are offering at very low rates.
