COMMERCIAL REPORT.-April 10th 1818. Sugar. The demand for this article, for the last ten days, has been limited, notwithstanding the stock on hand is very much reduced, and there is a certainty of no considerable quantity of new Sugars reaching the market for some weeks to come. Still there is no depression of price, and the holders confidently anticipate an advance. The excessive bad weather in the Islands has rendered the crops very late, which has retarded, and must yet greatly retard, the arrival of fresh Sugars in the market. In London, an advance upon Refined Sugar is anticipated from the extensive exportations about to take place to Russia. At Liverpool, some East India Sugars, brought forward by Auction, were withdrawn for want of purchasers. In Glasgow, some new Demerara Sugars sold by public sale, at 89s. 6d. and 93s. per cwt.-The demand for Molasses continues extensive. -Cotton. The demand in Liverpool continues regular for this article. The sales, for the week ending 4th April, amounted to 6200 bags. Very considerable importations are daily expected in the different ports. In London, the demand for foreign use is very extensive for Bahia Cote tonş, an inconsiderable quantity could only be obtained. Though the demand is less brisk than formerly for other kinds, still the prices are steady. The price of Cotton abroad is now very high, so much so, that the importer cannot, in many instances, realize the sum paid for it. The East India Company have declared a sale of about 15,000 bags, on the 24th of this month.-Coffce. The stock of this article is very much reduced. In London, the demand has of late been more languid ; the high prices are however maintained, and the holders anticipate a further advance. Great part of the limited stock now on hand is held by speculators. In Liverpool, the demand has lately been extensive, and about 400 casks and 4000 bags have been purchased by public and private sale, principally for home export and upon speculation.-0il. The arrival of three vessels at London, from the South Seas, with about 1000 tons of Oil, has considerably lowered the market. T'he depression on Southern Whale Oil may be estimated at £4 per ton. Greenland Oil has, in consequence, given way in price. The Cape Oil lately at market has all been disposed of. Cod and Seal Oil are merely nominal in price. In the Liverpool market, Palm and Turpentine Oil remain steady. Olive Oil moves off slowly. Rape Oil is dull, but Linseed is in request at 4s. 6d.---Tobacco. The inquiry for this article continues to be considerable. The principal part of the reduced stock in the London market is held by spec-, ulators, who anticipate a considerable advance in price. The demand in Liverpool has been limited, but prices remain unaltered -Rice. For some days the demand for this article in the London market was considerable. It has however again subsided. Considerable quantities of East India Rice were offered for sale, but withdrawn. The qualities, however, were of inferior descriptions. In Liverpool, Carolina Rice has been sold at a reduction of ls. to 1s. 6d. per cwt., and which was cccasioned by the supposition that the new duties would only be 10s. instead of 20s. Ofd. per cwt. Upon the whole, the market for this article may at present be considered as very heavy.- Corn. The price of grain has rather advanced. The supply at the London market has lately been more limited, and the demand considerably increased. The expectations, however, of considerable arrivals of foreign supplies may probably prevent any material advance. The abundance of the last harvest on the Continent, as well as in America and Ireland, is far more than sufficient to make up for the deficiency in Great Britain. The demand for Barley for shipping has been considerable. Beans, and gray Pease, and white Boilers, are in good request. The principal advance took place on the finer qualities of Wheat.-Irish Provisions. Prime Beef continues in fast demand. The inquiry for India and mess Pork is increased. In Bacon there is no variation. The Butter market has of late been heavy, and a depression in price is expected to take place. In Liverpool, the stock of Butter is small, and the demand regular. Pork is in good demand.--Naval Stores. Spirits are not so much in demand, and the price rather lower. In Pitch and Rosin there is no variation. The purchases of Stockholm Tar have been made at a small decline. An arrival of rough Turpentine in London is said to be disposed of at 19s. without any allowance. In Liver. pool, 500 Barrels have been sold at 18s. to 18s. 6d. per cwt. and 300 barrels Archangel Tar, 21s. 6d. per barrel.--Hemp, Flax, and Tallow. In London, the demand for Hemp has given way, but the price is little varied. The sale in Liverpool is very dull. Flax is in limited request, at former prices. There is not much business doing in Tallow; and the limited purchases of yellow Candle are a shade lower. In Liverpool, the stock of Tallow is much reduced, and therefore the article is inquired for.—Shumac, fc.-This article has been in great request in the Liverpool market. 1500 bags were lately sold at 21s. to 23s. 6d. per cwt. Brimstone from Sicily has been sold at £27, 7s. 6d. per ton, and higher rates are demanded. 3000 bags of Saltpetre were disposed of on the week ending April 4th, at 41s. to 4ls. 9d. per cwt. Several lots of New York and l'hiladelphia Flaxseed were sold at £5, 5s. per hhd. but upon which an advance of 53. is now demanded. Rum, Brandy, and Hollands. In the London market, the demand for Rum, which had becn considerable for exportation, has again subsided, and purchases may therefore be made a shade lower. In Liverpool, the business done on this article has been consider. able. From 600 to 800 punchcons were taken in the wesk ending April 4th, at 3s. 7d

for 16 O. P. and on which quality the demand chiefly Rum. Geneva continues dull. The better kinds of Brandy, being very scarce, maintain their former prices, inferior qualities of which there has lately been considerable importations from Naples, Spain, and Bourdeaux, may be quoted on the decline. The latter is used for adulterating the real Cognac before it comes to market, and the price of which, in France, is at present uncommonly high.-Wine. By the last advices from Oporto, a great rise has taken place on Port Wines. There is little doubt but it must continue to bear a much higher price than it has for some time done. Sherry, by the last advices, is also considerably advanced. The other descriptions are expected to follow.–Dyewoods. The demand in Liverpool for Dyewoods has rather been languid. Jamaica Logwood was sold at £9, 10s. to £9, 12s. 6d. off the quay. Nicaraqua Wood, at £30 per ton. 140 tons Parafustic at £6 per ton, and small parcels of Cuba, at £16 to £17 per ton, Honduras Mahogany, lately imported, sold at 143d. per foot. About 1500 Buenos-Ayres' Hides, of good quality, have been sold at 9d. per lb.

In our previous Numbers we have had occasion to notice the increased activity of our
Cotton Manufactures. This activity fully continues. During the three first months of
this year, the importations of Cotton amount to 146,881 bags, and the export only to 7001
bags, which clearly points out the vast and increased consumpt in this country. The exa
cess of importation in Liverpool, during the period we have just mentioned, is 37,633 bags
more than for the corresponding period of 1817. From the first of January to the 1st of
April, there has been paid, at London and Liverpool, the duties on the following articles
for home consumption, viz.
Sugar,
727,742 cwts.

Duty is £1,091,610
Coffee,
18,312 ditto

ditto 65,923
Cocoa,
276 ditto

ditto 2,612
Rum,
424,181 gallons, allowing for strength, 275,700

£1,334,845
It is not one branch of our manufactures only which have increased, every one has felt
the invigorating change. The following is a correct statement of the great increase in the
Woollen Manufactures of the kingdom, viz.

Narrow cloth milled during 1817, 132,607 ps. 5,233,616 yds.
Increase in 1817,

11,706 ps.

1,582,907 yds. Broad cloth ditto,

351,122 ps. 10,974,473 yds. Increase ditto,

25,673 ps.

839,188 yds. Making a total increase of

37,379 ps.

2,422,095 yds. The increase also of the Revenues of the country have kept pace with the most sanguine expectations. During the quarter ending the 5th instant, the excess beyond the preceding quarter is £739,009, and the excess beyond the corresponding quarter of 1817, is no less than £1,589,507. This excess also has taken place after the immense payment made for duties on Sugar, at the end of the previous quarter, and immediately before the additional duties took place, and which amounted to £500,000 or £600,000; and yet, after all this, we find the Customs, for the last quarter, increased nearly £200,000.

METEOROLOGICAL REPORT.

The month of March has been unusually stormy and inclement. It commenced with violent hurricanes of snow from the west, and for tive days continued to present all the appearance of the most unsettled winter weather. On the evening of the 4th, the wind shifted to the south-east with a heavy fall of snow and sleet, but by the morning of the 5th had again returned to the south-west. On that morning the Barometer sunk lower than perhaps was ever known in this part of the country. At 8 A. M. it stood at 27.970, and must in all probability have been lower, as it was then rising. It has been stated, that at the time of the earthquake in Calabria, in February 1783, the mercury at the Edinburgh Observatory sunk below graduation, that is 28 inches; but as the elevation of that Observatory is upwards of 300 feet, the mercury must have been at least as low as 27.8, to equal the depression on the 5th of March. It is worthy of remark, that on the night between the 4th and 5th, the tide rose unusually high in the Tay; and what renders the circumstance more extraordinary, is its being the first only of the stream or spring tides. Both these phenomena correspond, in point of time, with the violent hurricane experienced at London, and in various places of the south of England. On the 22d, the wind again blew strong from the west, with heavy snow at very short intervals. This was perhaps one of the worst days ever known at this advanced season of the year. The weather after this cleared up, and the month concluded with brisk dry winds from the north and northLast, a circumstance that accounts for the depression of the mean point of deposition below
