A VERY sensible change took place in the temperature of the air, at the beginning of December. The average of the first day was about 8 degrees lower than that of the last of November, and it continued to decline till about the 10th, when a keen frost set in, which lasted for several days. On the 19th, the Thermometer stood higher than on any former day, though the nights still continued cold. On the 27th and 28th, the frost was very keen, followed by warm days, and, till the end of the month, the Thermometer al. ways sunk, at one time or other of the night, to 32. The Barometer has been, upon the whole, steady, and during the frost, very high. In the state of the Hygrometer there is nothing deserving particular notice. We are under the necessity of suspending our observations of Wilson's Hygrometer, in consequence of the instrument having given way, an event which we long ago contemplated. It is not our intention to substitute another in its place, for we have found, in the course of twelve months' experience, that its indi. cations are not to be relied on. It is not to be supposed, indeed, that any animal or vegetable substance, whose texture is liable to continual changes, and, at last, to inevit. able destruction, can ever be employed for accurately measuring minute alterations in the state of the atmosphere. We hope, however, with the new year, to present our readers with another addition to our Meteorological Report, on a principle far more accurate and philosophical, and one which we believe

has never yet been used but by the author of the discovery. We shall explain it fully in next Report.

COMMERCIAL REPORT.-12th January 1819. Sugar. The demand for Sugar has continued steady, and prices have been in general maintained-in soine instances advanced. The market has every appearance of improv. ing, and the stocks every where greatly reduced, particularly in London, where the quantity on hand is considerably less than at the same period last year. The demand at present is principally for good and strong qualities of Muscovadoes. The purchases for the spring exportations are now commencing in refined goods. The holders are not anxious to press sales, as they expect higher prices as the season advances. No business has of late been done in Foreign Sugars. The stock of Sugar on hand must be greatly reduced before any fresh supplies of importance can reach the market.-Coffee. The demand for Coffee in every market may be considered as steady in some iristances; the business done has been extensive. Some public sales went off at great briskness, and those by private contract maintain the late advance. As the navigation becomes open in the North of Europe, it is probable that Coffee may come still more into demand, and bring higher prices.-Cotton. The low price of this article is now rendering it an object for great capitalists to look after. In consequence of which, there has been more business done of late, and prices may be stated a shade higher. The consumpt during last year has increase ed, but not in proportion to the quantity brought to market. The bad accounts of the state of the markets in this country for Cotton, are now beginning to reach the countries where it is produced, and must create a very considerable fall in the price, of which speculators will no doubt eagerly avail themselves. The insports from all quarters during last year have greatly increased, particularly from the East Indies, the United States of America, and the Brazils. From the great quantity, however, in the market, and the very large supplies on the way from different ports, it is by no means probable that any great improvement in price can take place for some time. The Cotton from the East Indies is daily gaining ground amongst the spinners and manufacturers.- Con. As the ports still continue open for the importation of Foreign Grain, the market may in general be stated ás dull and heavy for Grain from foreign ports. In English Wheat, the demand is more lively, and prices rather on the advance. It is not probable, however, froin the general state of the market, that any considerable advance can take place, or be permanent. Rum, Brandy, and Hollands. The Rum market continues very dull and depressed. The quotations can hardly be obtained, and good purchasers may buy at prices be
