COMMERCIAL REPORT.-12th December 1818.

Sugar. The demand for Sugar since the middle of last month has increased, and the prices are consequently on the advance. Considerable sales have lately been effected on London, which market regulates all the others in the kingdom. The stock on hand is by no means considerable, and much less than at the corresponding period of last year. “No supplies of any consequence can now be expected from any of the colonies before May next; and the probability therefore is, that when the spring purchases are made, or as the time for these approach, Sugar will advance considerably in price, and the market be found very bare. -Coffee. There has lately been a considerable demand for Coffee, chiefly, however, on speculation. The accounts from the Continental markets are, that the prices in some are more firm than these had previously been, and in others, that an improvement had taken place. It is by no means improbable, therefore, should these appearances continue, that Coffee, as the spring approaches, may become an article of still greater speculation, and at improved prices. The still high prices, however, will render this very hazardous to the buyer.Cotton. The market for this article still continues in a very depressed state, and prices on the decline. The loss on the importations of Cote ton this year, has in many instances been severe. It is calculated as high as £5 per bale. The quantity, imported into Great Britain this year is truly astonishing. The quantity brought into Liverpool to the 5th of this month, amounts to 400,384 bags, being equal to the whole import of the United Kingdom for 1817. Into London and Glasgow, to the 5th of this month, there has been imported 223,219 bags, making, for eleven months of this year, the enormous importation of 623,603 bags, the value of which, even at the present low prices, can scarcely be less than 12 millions, if not considerably more.-Corn and Fruit. The Grain market is heavy and on the decline. The supply of both home and foreign, has been very considerable. The abundant harvest has produced such a quantity of grain of all kinds, that the market must remain moderate. The market is glutted withi every description of Fruit, and there is scarcely any demand. -Tobacco. The demand for Tobacco is extremely limited. In the markets of Holland, it is very low in price. The stock in Great Britain has materially increased. Irish Provisions. The demand for prime Beef and Pork continues good. Butters remain nominally the same.

The uncommon mild weather, which has covered the pastures with verdure almost to this date, has no doubt added to the supply of this article. -Rum, Brandy, and Hollands. The Rum market is dull, and the prices are heavy. Brandy has declined greatly in prices. Geneva is without variation. Oil. The market for this article in general continues heavy.-Tallow has declined considerably in price.-Hemp and Flax are also heavy. Wines of every description are still looking up in price. The vintage has in no place come up to the expectations formed of it, and in many places has fallen off to a very great degree, while the demand generally has very much increased.

The mercantile accounts from those places connected with the South American continent are by no means favourable, and it is much to be feared may be still worse. The horrid warfare carried on in that unfortunate country, not only destroys commerce, but involves all property in complete destruction, and which warfare is chiefly carried on and encouraged by headstrong adventurers from all countries, and by no means as is represented by the natives, at least the reflecting part of them. The seas are covered with armed vessels under what is called the Independent flag, but manned wholly by crews collected from all nations, and who, in their lawless career, pay very little respect to any flag, and harass the peaceable merchants of every nation, and occasion them numerous and se. vere losses. To the disgrace of our country, there are great numbers of British subjects

METEOROLOGICAL REPORT.

The month of November last year was reported as unusually mild and warm, the mean temperature being nearly 7 degrees above that of 1816. This season, however, it has been even higher

by nearly 2 degrees. This difference is chiefly owing to the absence of frost during the night, the mean of the greatest daily heat being only about half a degree higher than that of last year. Compared with October, the temperature has gradually declined, though not so rapidly as might have been expected, the difference of the average being only about 4 degrees. During the night the thermometer generally stood above 40, and sometimes as high as 50. The temperature has also been unusually steady, the difference between the highest and lowest in 24 hours being frequently no more than 2 or 3 degrees, and on one occasion only a single degree. The fluctuations of the barometer, with the exception of a few days about the middle of the month, have been moderate, and the average height is nearly the same as last year. The quantity of rain exceeds that of October by about an inch, and that of November last year by 3-10ths. The average of Leslie's hygrometer is upwards of degrees lower than that of October; but if allowance be made for the difference of temperature, the relative dryness of the atmosphere was nearly the same in both. The mean of the maximum and minimum temperature, contrary to what usually takes place, is lower than that of ten o'clock morning and evening; but the difference (2-10ths of a degree) is so small, that the two may be considered as absolutely coinciding. The coincidence between the mean point of deposition, and the mean minimum temperature, is equally striking, the difference being only 1-10th of a degree. It is a remarkable fact, that on the 19th of the month, the barometer remained so steady during the whole 24 hours, that three observations, viz. at ten o'clock morning and evening of the 19th, and ten o'clock on the morning of the 20th, agreed to the 1000th part of an inch ; the height of the mercury at each period being 29.750. At ten o'clock on the evening of the 20th, it had risen only 7-1000ths, and about 8-1000ths by the morning of the 21st. The month altogether has been very different from what is usually experienced at this
