MONTHLY COMMERCIAL REPORT.

BRITISH TRADE AND MANUFACTURES. The consternation which has, for some time

past, prevailed in the commercial world, is gradually subsiding; and we perceive, with no small pleasure, that the gazettes of the last month do not present us with such swollen cao talogues of bankrupts as have lately alarmed the trading' part of the community. In the provincial towns confidence appears to be on the revival, and the banking-houses which have "weathered the storm," are in as high credit as ever. The manufacturing interest has not received any mclioration since our last, and in some towns, more especially Manchester and Birmingham, considerable distress still prevails among the working classes. Some consid-a sable failures in the West India line, have taken place at Liverpool; but these have long been anticipated, and it is hoped that they will not ultimately prove detrimental either to the provision dealers of Ireland, or the manufacturers of Lancashire and Staffordshire, who are the principal creditors of the defaulters alluded to.

EAST INDIES AND CHINA.-The Earl Howe, Lady Lushington, and Sir William Pultsey, East Indiamen, from Bengal, and the Charles Grant, from Bombay, arrived within the current month. The cargoes of these vessels are well assorted, and consist of the following commodities : 'viz Bengal Piece Goods, 10,594 pieces of muslin; and 50,943 pieces of calico. Prohibited cottons, calicoes, and silks of sundry descriprions, 30,331 pieces. Com Pasy's Drugs, &*c. Sugar, 5,171 bags, saltpetre, 11,378 ditto. Raw silk, 766 bales, hemp, (an account of government) 1,149 ditro. Bamboo machinery, 2 boxes, and kemoo shells, 6 ditto. Privilege Drugs, &c.

120 bales; 120 bales; long pepper, bags; tortoise-shell, 4 chests; rhubarb, 58 ditto; raw silk, 56 bales; sadower, 153 chests; Cambry stones, 1 cask; castor oil and dry ginger, so cases; piece goods, 18 bales; ditto, 3'chests ; rice, 7 bags'; sticklac, so chests; hartall refined, 2 ditto ; mother o pearl-shells, 583 packages; cotton thread, 16 bales; gall nuts, 115 bags; shellac, 78 chests ; bees' wax, 3 ditto; gům mastic, 1 ditto ; ditto Arabic, 85 ciito; ditto olibanum, 14 ditto; ditto animi, 8 ditto ; ditto copal, 1 ditto ; myrrh, 10 ditto ; and Madeira wine, 137 pipes. Little, if any, alteration has taken place in the prices of oriental merchandise since our last. Singlo and twankay teas are higher ; the market price varies from 3s. 6d to 35. 10d. ; bohea fetches from 1s. 9d. to 2s. 2d.; congou, Ss. 3d. to Ss. 74. ; souchong, 3s. 78. to 45. 4d. ; pekoe, 4s. to 45. 64 ; and fine hyson, 5s. 61. and upwards, per 1b. Sugar has fallen; its prices now are from 31. 14s. to 41. 16s, per dwt. Cotton-wool, 1š. Sd. to 1s. 6d. per ib. Hemp, 501. to 601. per ton. Camphor, unrefined, 331. to 35l. per cwt.; ginger, 31. 153. to + guineas, per cwt. ; gum Arabic, 21. 185. to bl. 183. per cwt.; and ditto olibanum, 31. gs. to 101. per 15. Madder roots, 51. 10$. to 61. per cwt. Indigo, according to colour, 6s. to 13s. 9d.; and cochineal, 6s. to 8s. per lb.

WEST INDIES.-- We have the satisfaction to announce the safe arrival of a large fleet from the Islands. The cargoes do not come to the best of markets, but if the old proverb be true, that " when things come to the worst, they must mend," the holders of West Indis goods may indulge in hope. Tlie raw sugar market is unusually flat at London. At Liverpool, however, good and fine sugars are in regular enquiry, and a few lots of very fine qua. lity have lately gone off there at improved prices. Our prices are, for Antigua, Si. 148. to 4 guineas ; Barbadoes and Tobago, 31. 1.5s. to 4 guineas. Dominica, Mentserrat, and St. Vincent's, 31. 15s. to 41. 6s. ; Jamaica, 31. 16s. to 41. 5s. and Barbadoes, clayed, 41. 9s. to 51. 8s. per cwt. Rums are scarcely in demand ; Jamaicas fetch, 4s. 4d. to 6s. 6d. and Leeward Islands, 3s. 10d. to 4s. 6d. per gallon, Jamaica mahogany, 1s. 6d. to s. 20. per foote T'he demand for dye-woods is becomie dull: Jamaica logwood, chipt, scils at prices from 301. to 321. per cwt. Jamaica fustick, 201. 105 to 20 guineas; and Cuba ditto, 241. to 261. per ton. Cotton continues pretty steady both in the London and Liverpool markets; in the lacter, 7000 bags of all sorts have been sold within the last week. The market prices at London are, Tobago and Barbadoes, 1s. od. to 13. 9d. ; Jamaica, 1s. 5d. to 1s. 60.; and Grenada, 1s, 7d. to 1s. 104 d. per 16.

NORTH AMERICA.-Our trade with this part of the globe is pretty steady; and, as the following quotations will evince, American commodities are well esteemed in the English markets : Georgia cotton brings from 1s. 2d. to 25. ; New Orleans ditta, 1s. 34. to 1s. 6d.; Maryland Tobacco, 5d. to 16d. ; and Virginia dicco, 6d. to 844. per lb. Tallow has been selling at an advanced price. Tar and surpentine are in brisle demand; the former fetches from 25s. to S0s. per barrel, and the latter from 18s. to a guinea, per cwt. Pitch, 13s. to 13s. 6d.; black rosin, 10s. $0 12s. ; and yellow ditto, 13s, to 153. per cwe. Oak, 41. to 181 105.; ditto plank, 111. 10$. to 151.; pine, 71. 10s, to 81. 12.; and ditto plank, 111. 10. to 151. 10s. per last. Wax, 131. 55. to 141. per cwt. Linseed, 41. õs, to 41. 10s. per quarter; and Carolina rice, from 26s. to 288. per cwt.

SOUTH AMERICA. --The chief ports of South America are still glutted with British ma. nufactured goods, and the only articles which find any sale in this part of the world are Irish provisions of every description. Under a commercial regulation adopted by the Junta of Cadiz, it is now permitied to export thence to South America silk and cotton manufactures in Spanish vessels, and for Spanish account. Before, silk could only be exported, if of foreign produce, with a certain proportion of the native silks ; and cottons were wholly prohi. bited. The following are our market prices of South American goods : Buenos Ayres hides, 7d. to 9d.; Guatimala indigo, 8s. 6d. to 16s. ; Carraccus ditco, 8s, to 15s. Id. ; garbled cochincal, 11, 14s. to 11. 18s.; Brazil roll tobacco, 7d. to 8d.; ditio leaf, 5d. to od.; and Brazil cotton, 2s. 2d, to 28. 6d. per lh,

BALTIC There have been considerable arrivals from this sea in several of our ports, particularly that of London. The cargoes of the vessels principally consisted of corn, of which there is now a large quantity in the market. By the letters which che vessels brought home, we learn that the ships detained in the ports of Prussia, on suspicion of being laden with English property, are likely to be released upon paying 50 per cent. We understand that government intends Llockuding the Baltic, and that orders to that effect have actually been sent out to the admiral cominanding on the station ; we trust that this report is not correct, as the adoption of such a measure would put many fair traders to infinite inconvenience.

FRANCE.-In our last report we specified i be terms upon which the French government was inclined to admit of a commercial intercourse between the two nations ; we have now to siate the conditions required by our lords of the council before they will grant licences to trade with France ; ! All vessels not bearing the flag of France, may cake exportable goods, cotcon excepted, from Great Britain to that country; and in return sball be allowed to bring back grain, meal, Aour, burr-stones, seeds, and olive oil. A vessel is allowed to bring one-third of her cargo in wine, provided she shall have taken from this country British

manufactured
