COLONIAL PRODUCE. Sugars. The quantity of sugars lately arrived is very incon. siderable, and though the stock of old is understood to be much reduced, yet prices continue to decline, and the inarket is very dull. In Refined there has been little variation during the month ; of late some holders have shewn a disposition to reduce their prices, as the demand continues limited. Molasses heavy and declining. A public sale of East India Sugars was brought forward the 29th April ; low white, or fine yellow, all withdrawn at 15s. to 463. ; much above the market price. Some Brazil Sugars, of uncommon fine quality, have been shown by private contract ; for fine white, very strong grain, 59s. was offered and refused. Coffee has been and continues in considerable demand, and large sales have been made, principally for exportation. Cotton. In this article very extensive. sales have been lately effected, and inquiries for exportation continue to be made. What appears a little singular is, whilst the raw material meets a demnand exceeding that of any former period, and maintains a price nearly double its fair growing value, compared with that of every other production of the soil, the manufactured articles remain at prices unprecedentedly low. Indigo.-An extensive sale, by the East India Company, took place the end of last month; the prices not generally so high as anticipated, but, on van. average, may be rated at 9d. to 15d. per lb. above the previous sale. The quantity taken in, however, for account of the proprietors, was considerable, nearly a half of the whole sale. Tobacco.—The contract advertised by the French government has excited much attention, and so soon as the particulars are more fully known, an advance in the price of this article is expected. Rum.-A very extensive transaction has taken place in this article, about 3000 puncheons of the strongest Jamaica, and of favourite marks, usually taken for home consumption, having been contracted for, to be taken on arrival. The particulars of the sale have not transpired, but prices are reported to be from 45. to 45. 3d. --This extensive quantity, withdrawn from the market, with a short import, may proba. by affect the prices. Rice continues to decline, and is offered at very low prices.

EUROPEAN PRODUCE. Hemp, Flax, and Tallow. In these articles little variation, and the demand very limited. Oils-Fish still scarce, and prices supported.Cod has been sold at £32.—Olive very dull. Provisions.--Irish continue to go off readily; pork in considerable request. 17,000 Edam Cheeses, (round Dutch) lately brought forward for sale, went of at 40s. to 52s. chiefly 49s. to 50s. In British Manufactures the demand still continues such as to produce little improvement in prices. In a few parts of the country, we are, however, glad to hear, there is some appearance of revival. The come merce of the port of Newcastle is stated to have materially improved during the last two months, and very considerable exportations of manufactured goods are said to have taken place, not as formerly, upon speculation, but in execution of real orders from the Con. tinent. We also learn from Staffordshire, that its trade and manufactories have revived very considerably of late, particularly the Iron works.

Premiums of Insurance. There has been little variation during last month at Lloyd's ; the continental risks may however be stated a little lower; to Holland, the immediate coast of France, and to Hamburgh, &c. 10s. 6d. to 12s 8d. per cent.

SINCE our last Report the weather has been remarkably favourable to field-work of every kind ; and the seed was never put into the ground with a better prospect of an early and vigorous vegetation. This, however, was much retarded by the want of rain ; and until the 12th instant, when we had plentiful showers, such of the grain-plants as had appeared above ground shewed symptoms of feebleness in many instances, and later sown fields in general were thinly and irregularly planted. It is well known, that, in this part of the island, wheat suffered more than any other kind of corn last year ; yet there is reason to fear, that oats, even when not deficient in weight or in meal, have suffered in such a degree as to impair their vegetative powers. It is oertain, at least, that where a comparison has been made between the oats of 1815 and 1816, by sowing both on different portions of the same field, the plants from the seed of the former year are by far the most close and vigorous. There has been a gradual fall in the prices of all sorts of grain for some weeks, particularly of inferior samples; though in the London market, and throughout the whole of England if we may judge from the weekly averages, they have not given way so much as in Scotland, into which very large importations have been made since the beginning of this month. ---Cattle, in forward condition, find purchasers ; and grazing lands have been let for the season at the rates of last year, or somewhat more.- Wool is expected to improve in value, the import of that article of late not having been so large as formerly. The apprehensions which were once entertained of a great scarcity must now have subsided, for there is no doubt whatever of our having enough of corn to carry us forward to another harvest. Prices, indeed, cannot be low;- but it deserves to be remarked, that if Government had interfered as on former occasions, by bounties and pro hibitions, and thus sounded the alarm all over Europe, the price of wheat, in particular, would have been higher this year in Britain than it has ever been in the memory of man.
