Sugar. THE demand for Muscovadoes has been rather limited, the market dull, and prices may be stated without any material alteration. The request continues chiefly for good and fine descriptions. The prices for low lumps has rather been improving, and the demand has been considerable. Generally, however, the refined market may be stated as heavy. There are few sales of foreign Sugars. East India Sugars go off at various prices. The advices from the West Indies in general represent the crops as very backward, and the weather very unfavourable for making Sugar, owing to the continued rains. The crop must therefore be very late, and no great supply of Sugar can be expected before the month of June. Molasses are declining, and meet a heavy sale.-Cotton. The large arrivals of Cotton, announced some days ago, had the effect of depressing the market. It seems to be the general opinion that the prices must yet decline considerably. The quan

tity imported continues to be very great. About a fortnight ago, above 30,000 packages were imported into Liverpool in the course of a few days. The total quantity imported during the first quarter of the present year amounts to 194,277 packages, which exceeds the corresponding quarter of last year, in the port of Liverpool alone, by 27,095 packages. Unless the consumpt continued to be very great and increasing, this immense importation must have sunk the price uncommonly low, which has not hitherto been the case in all the superior kinds. Considerable purchases have lately been effected for export and on speculation, which have given the market a firmer aspect, but this is believed can only be for the moment. Coffee. There has been very little business done in the Coffee market for some time, either by public sales or private contract. The prices remain stationary, and at the latest period may be stated a shade higher than at a previous period. For foreign there appears few buyers.-Corn. The market for all kinds of grain continues dull and greatly depressed. Wheat continues to fall in price. Barley is in such a complete state of stagnation that no sales can be effected. Oats, Beans, and Peas are also dull and rather lower. The demand for East India Rice continues considerable. The appearance of the Grain market is altogether very unfavourable for the holders. The present fine seed-time and early spring affords the strongest prospects that these will be succeeded by an early and abundant harvest, which will be a great relief to the manufacturing classes, suffering from dull trade and low wages.-Tobacco. There is no alteration in the price of Tobacco, several considerable shipments are making to France.-Tallow. There is little variation in the price of foreign Tallow.-Rum, Brandy, and Geneva. The market for Rum is again become heavy, and prices on the decline. Brandy and Geneva remain without alteration, and the market may be stated as heavy.-Wine. A very considerable rise has lately taken place on Port Wine. The vintage of last year fell very short from the expectations formed of it at an early period, and the quality is also, upon trial, found to be of an inferior kind. Higher prices therefore are anticipated. Madeira is also advancing in price, owing to the great demand for that kind of wine.

In the other articles often enumerated there is no alteration sufficient to merit notice. Notwithstanding the great importations of timber from different quarters, this article may be stated as scarce. The demand is certainly very extensive.

The public funds, which were greatly depressed, have recovered considerably, and still looking upwards steadily though slowly. Money is more abundant on the Stock Exchange than at the date of our last Report. Still a great stagnation remains in the manufacturing and commercial world. This is likely to continue for some time longer. The causes we have formerly endeavoured to point out. One of these, the great losses by Cotton, continues to act, though in a lesser degree. The loss also upon Grain must have been very great; the importation in 1817 amounted in value to £6,403,893, and in 1818 to £10,908,142. The amount of all this is money on the produce of our industry sent out of the country, and the loss upon Grain and upon Cotton are therefore total losses to the community, as well as to the individuais concerned. Therefore these losses press harder upon the commercial world than any other amongst our numerous branches of trade.
