COMMERCIAL REPORT-14th February, 1821.

Sugar.—The demand for inferior Sugars continues dull and unsettled. The finer qualities are in considerable demand, and prices advanced. The refined goods have given way in price. Foreign Sugars are more in demand, on account of some expected regulations in Russia. Except from Demerara, the supplies of Sugar must, for several months to come, be very small. The appearance, however, of the crops for 1821 were, at the date of the last account from the Islands, very favourable. The present prices will not by any means reimburse the planter, whose distress must be severe. In no case is he getting the interest of his money. The extension of cultivation in Foreign Colonies is filling every foreign market with Sugar more than adequate to the consumpt thereof; nor does there appear any limits to the increasing evil.—Cotton. The prices of Cotton continue still to give way, and are now at a rate lower than we believe were ever previously known. The consumpt, however, continues to increase, but not equal to the supply, which is unprecedentedly large. The same cause that extends the cultivation of Sugar is also extending the cultivation of Cotton. On this article, the loss on importation must, for some time past, have been very great. It exceeds 30 per cent. in the short period of a few months. East India Cotton is sunk to a price ruinously low.— Coffee. The demand for Coffee was for some time very considerable, and the prices in consequence advanced. Of late the market is become more languid, and the prices have lately given way. The value of this article depends altogether upon the advices from the Continent. The season for exportation advances, and every mail will tend to alter the face of the Coffee market for better or for worse. The chance is in favour of improvement.—Corn. The price of Wheat may be stated on the decline, and the market full and heavy. Oats are stationary. The prices of every article of agricultural produce is at a rate injuriously low for the agricultural interest, the foundation stone of the strength of this country. As commercial affairs mend, however, the price of Grain will gradually improve, and approach its proper level; but it is a question very doubtful, if the prices will enable the landholder to realize his rents.-Rum, The government contract has made no alteration in the price of this article. It continues exceedingly low and distressed. The planter had better give away his Molasses in a present, than convert them into Rum, at its present rates; it does not pay the expence of distillation. Brandy and Geneva continue without any alteration. Tobacco is dull and heavy. Greenland Oils are on the decline. Hemp, Flax, and Tallow are each in a languid state, the latter in particular lowering in price, and much depressed. There is no material difference in any other article of commerce from our quotations. The demand for goods from foreign markets continues to improve, and there is also a considerable imoprovement in the home markets. Some branches of trade, however, still continue much depressed. This is particularly the case with Birmingham. Taking, however, the ag‘gregate of our manufacturing establishments, the condition of the labourers is very greatly improved indeed, compared to this time last year. Work is now abundant. The wages are more than doubled, and the prices of provisions are unusually low. Upon the whole, we anticipate a continued improvement in all our commercial concerns.—The general Reyiew of British Commerce for last year, is unavoidably postponed to our next.
