COLONIAL PRODUCE.-Sugars have continued in steady demand during last month, without variation in prices until towards the end, when Muscovadoes advanced from 3s. to 4s. at which very considerable sales have been made. If the demand continues a few days equally brisk, very few of this description will remain in the market. Refined goods are also in request, with a small improvement in price. Foreign sugars have likewise advanced. For good white Havannah, 72s. has been realised. Coffee continues in brisk and extensive demand, and prices of every description may be stated' 3s. to 5s. higher since our last.

Cotton.-The last India sale attracted considerable attention; it consisted of 8536 bags, which were reported to be the whole remaining in the importers' hands, and the demand was in consequence extremely brisk. The shippers were the principal purchasers. Ordinary descriptions went off yd. to 14d., and middling 4d. to d. advance on the last sale prices. Other descriptions have also experienced a small advance: current prices Demerara and Berbice, 203d. to 2s. 1!d. ; Grenada and Cariacou, 2013. to 22d. ; Surinams, 2s. to 2s. 1 d.; Bower, 19d. to 20d. ; Pernams, 2s. 2d. ; Bengale, in the house, 10 d. to 11 d. The imports of Cotton into London, Liverpool, and Glasgow, were 42,487 bags, being 8448 more than those of July 1816. Indigo. Considerable purchases continue to be made at a premium of 4d. to 6d. on last India sale. Spices without variation. Pimento, of good quality, is readily sold at 9 d. to 91d. Tobacco.-The French contracts have nearly cleared the market of the ordinary descriptions, but other qualities may be purchased a shade lower. Rum. In this article there has lately been considerable transactions, but no variation in prices. .

EUROPEAN PRODUCE.—Hemp, Flar, and Tallow.--The arrivals from the Baltic being inconsiderable, owing to the continued westerly winds, prices have experienced a small advance. Brandy.-Owing to accounts from France of the almost certainty of a very deficient vintage, this article advanced a little in price, and may be expected to go still higher. The demand for British Manufactures continues improving. The accounts from Manchester and Leeds represent trade as now much brisker than it has been any time during the last two years, with every appearance of a steady demand.

AGRICULTURAL REPORT.

The almost daily showers which have fallen since the date of our last Report, and for some time before, and the present very unsettled weather, have placed the prospect of harvest at a much greater distance than we then delighted to contemplate ; and the more weighty crops are at last beginning to fall to the ground. After a careful examination of very recent Reports, from Correspondents in almost every county in Britain, we are led believe that the produce of the present season in wheat, barley, and oats, is likely to be least equal to an average on all early soils where sound seed had been sown ; but that eva in these favourable circumstances the harvest must now be late. It will be near the es of the month before reaping becomes general in the south of England ; and in Scotland the approach of the crops towards maturity has been so slow for these three weeks, the there is reason to fear the ensuing harvest will be almost as late as the last. Yet a monu of clear warm weather, after so much rain, would rapidly change the hue of our fields, and call forth thousands from the abodes of poverty and despondence to the healthy and all mating toils of autumn. Beans and pease will yield a scanty produce. The hay crop 1 not been so weighty as was once expected. Hops, and fruits of every kind, and the seru of clovers, cannot be productive. Turnips are now suffering from too much rain ; and a month past, little progress has been made in cleaning and dressing fallows. Pora are said to promise a very abundant crop, and, fortunately, a larger quantity has been plan ed than in ordinary seasons. Of all our crops, this is perhaps the one to which we way look with the most gratifying anticipations for the relief of the lower classes.

The corn markets have continued to decline, though but slowly, since the middle of con month, for which no other cause can be assigned, than the great importations of Fo grain ; the effect of which, in reducing our prices, is now no longer counteract our exports to France, where the new crop begins to come into consumption. Bu meat, as usually happens in the summer months, has fallen ; and cattle for grazing, ow to the abundance of the pastures, are in deinand, at a considerable advance of price ; )
