COMMERCIAL REPORT. TIIE most prominent feature in commerce during the past month has been a rapid advance in the price of grain, the average return of wheat baving been in the proportion of 595. to 70s. per quarter; but as it resulted more from speculation than any other cause, and the speculation having subsided, the price has again considerably declined: it has, however, produced the effect, in some degree, of reviving thic bopes of the agricultural interest, and caused more general activity in every department of business more immediately dependent upon the internal consumption of the country.

The improvement in our external commerde is so gradual and slow as to preclude any strong feature of representation; and the universal opinion of capitalists in favour of an improvement in the funds, which appears likely to be realized, has tended to deprive commerce of every kind of support further than actual necessity has required, which has caused almost every article of merchandize to have declined to its lowest growing or productive value.--The crop of sugar for the present season is likely to prove less than the preceding, and the present prices steadily prevail. An improvement in the price of coffee has been contidently expected by the holders for several months; but the season for export having considerably advanced without producing that effect, they begin to bring forward extensive parcels for sale; about 20,000 bags of East India being declared for the present month, and something lower prices may still be expected. Numerous arrivals both from China and British India'thus early in the season, kaving taken place, all the productions of that quarter of the globe are in great plenty, but not in such abundance as to produce any material alteration in the present value. A sale of about 19,000 chests of indigo finished last month, threc-iourths of which were sold from 38. 4d. to 10s. per pound. A considerable increase in the duty on soap having been brought before Parliament in the course of last month, gave rise to some considerable purNew MONTULY Mag-No. 29.
