grapes; and in Spain, from a dry chilling east wind.-In any other of the usual articles
of commerce commonly enumerated by us, there is no alteration sufficient to claim notice.
-Tallow has fluctuated greatly in price. The supply of Fruit from foreign parts is un-

rican colonies to the ports of Clyde is becoming very great, and daily increasing.
