Resignations and Retirements.
The month of October has been in almost every respect, a perfect contrast to the same month last year. In October 1817, the Thermometer never rose above 51ļ, and on no one day did the mean temperature exceed 46 ; in October 1818, the Thermometer frequently rose to 60, and once to 62, while the mean temperature of some days was from 55 to 58. The lowest during the month last year was 29 ; this year it is 36}, viz. in the night of the 5th, but excepting that night the temperature was never below 40. The mean of the whole month last year was 413, this year it is within a small fraction of 513, being a difference of about 10 degrees. Both, indeed, have been extraordinary, the one being as much below, as the other is above, the average temperature of October. In the state of the Barometer, the difference between the two months has not been so great as in that of the Thermometer. In 1817, the mercurial column was both higher and more steady during the first part of the month than it was this year, but towards the end it became more va. riable, and sunk considerably lower, though the average was upon the whole higher. In the state of the Hygrometer, there appears, at first sight, to be scarcely any difference at all, the mean of Leslie's, in October 1817, being 104, and this year 10. These quanti. ties, however, do not indicate the actual state of the atmosphere with regard to dryness, for, had the temperature in 1817 been as high as it has been this year, even though the moisture had been undiminished, Leslie's Hygrometer would have stood much higher. This appears more obviously by comparing the mean points of deposition, that of 1817 being 35, and this year 47. The atmosphere in October 1817 was therefore much drier than 1818. The facts respecting the mean temperature, and the points of deposition, so often mentioned in these reports, have been again verified last month. The mean of 10, morning and evening, differs from the mean of the maximum and minimum only by 3 tenths of a degree, the former, as usual, being the lowest ; and the mean point of deposition differs from the mean of the minimum temperature, only by 2 tenths of a degree.

Sugar. The demand for Sugar during all last month has, upon the whole, been limited, and the prices depressed. For a few days prices appeared to revive, but they quickly sunk back to their previous depressed state. The shipments for the Baltic may now be considered as completely closed for the season. The quantity of Sugar is also complete, in as far as regards arrivals from the West Indies, till the ensuing crop begins to arrive at market, which cannot take place before the middle of May next. There is the strongest probability, from the quantity at present on hand, that the price of Sugar will advance as spring approaches. - Coffee. The price of Coffee, though much below what it once was, may still be considered as high. The price has fluctuated greatly, and is moved by every breath of speculation, and according as the reports from the Continent are put in circulation. Upon the whole, however, the market may be stated as dull, and the prices on the decline. Within these few days there is more appearance of steadiness in the demand and the prices.- Cotton. The market for this article continues greatly depressed, and, considering the high prices paid for it in foreign countries, the loss to the importers must be very considerable. The importation this year has been unprecedentedly large, and the stock on hand very considerable, notwithstanding the continued activity of our manufactures. Large supplies are still on the way from the East Indies and other places. There is but a small chance of Cotton increasing any thing considerable in price for some time to come. The exports of Cotton from the port of New Orleans to Europe this year has amounted to 80,000 packages, which shews the immense extent of the trade of that place, and the extent to which Cotton is cultivated on the Banks of the Mississippi and the Southern parts of the United States. Corn. The importation of grain from foreign ports continues very great, yet, notwithstanding the demand in England for finer qualities, continues steady and considerable. The harvest is now concluded in superior order, and in Scotland, in particular, the quantity has been most abundant, and quality excellent. Plenty is therefore secured for another year. The prices of sheep and black cattle, particularly the latter, the great and indeed only support of the Highlands and hilly districts of Scotland, have greatly advanced, so that after their late severe disasters, the prospects of the Scots farmer is become more cheering:-Wincs. Almost every description of Wines have advanced in price, and a farther and still very considerable ad. vance in price is anticipated. The vintage in France has been severely injured by the long continuance of dry weather. In Spain and Portugal it has not turned out nearly equal to the expectations once formed of it; while latter advices inform us, that in Portu. gal the vintage has suffered severely from excessive rains during the ingathering of the Vol. IV.
