COMMERCIAL REPORT.

COLONIAL PRODUCE.-Sugar.-The expected supplies having arrived, and large quantities being brought into the market, prices declined considerably during the first two weeks of last month. These are, however, again improving a little, owing to considerable purchases being made for the Continent, principally for Holland and Belgium. Refined Sugars continue to meet an extensive demand, and parcels are readily sold the moment they are brought into the market. Molasses are also in brisk demand. Considerable sales of Foreign Sugars have been effected, but without any variation in prices.-Rum exceedingly dull, and may be purchased at a reduction of 2d. to 3d. per gallon since our last.- Coffee continues in steady demand, without much variation in prices. -Cotton.Pernambucco has been in considerable request, and nearly the whole in the market has been purchased for exportation ; price 26. to 2s. ld. Other sorts without variation, though in considerable demand- -Spices.-Company's Pepper, of good quality, in considerable request. A parcel was lately withdrawn at 8ļd. Jamaica Ginger is also in demand ; price £14, 118.Tobacco in very limited demand, and without variation.

EUROPEAN PRODUCE.--Hemp, Flax, and Tallow, without much variation in prices, Parcels of Hemp for arrival have been sold at £37 to £37, 155.--Ashes very dull, and prices considerably lower.

We state again, with much pleasure, that our intelligence from the different Manufacturing districts continues favourable. Trade is reviving slowly; and the best proof of it is, that all the workmen are now in employment. Wages have also risen, though, we doubt, not yet in proportion to the prices of provisions. In Glasgow and some other places, we know for a fact, that those charitable establishments which had been formed for distributing soups, &c. have been given up, as no longer necessary.
