market lately has become more languid, and prices have given way. Sales are dull at our present quotations.- -Cotton. The transactions in this article have been extensive, and prices on the advance. On the week ending the 1st August, the sales in Liverpool amounted to 14,300 bags. The importations continue to be very extensive, yet the price acvances, a clear proof of the prosperity of that branch of our manufactures.- -Tobacco. There has been considerable sales made in this article, and at improved prices. The market, upon the whole, may be stated lively.- -Corn. The prices of grain, owing to the extensive supplies, both foreign and domestic, have given way. The markets every where are dull, and looking downwards. The present remarkable fine warm weather cannot fail to secure an early harvest. Already the fields are very generally assuming the livery of autumn. The crops of all kinds in Scotland will be most abundant. In the South of England and Ireland, it is said that some counties have suffered by drought. This, however, cannot be very great. The harvest, all over the Continent of Europe, and also of North America, is represented as most abundant and fine. The prices of grain must therefore soon give way still more considerably than these have yet done. -Oils. There has been extensive purchases in these articles, chiefly on speculation. The prices have consequently advanced. It may be doubted, however, how far and how long these may be maintained, as the accounts of the Greenland Fisheries, so far as these are yet received, are highly favourable.

Irish Provisions. There has been a considerable demand for prime Mess Beef. Mess Pork has been more inquired after. Butter has rather given way in price, and Bacon is steady. -Rum, Brandy, and Hollands. There has been several considerable purchases of Run, made chiefly on speculation. The imports have as yet been smaller than usual, and holders calculate upon the supply being greatly deficient. Brandy is dull, though prices have advanced abroad. Geneva is without variation.Wines. A reduction is expected in the prices of French Wines, owing to the appearance of a most abundant vintage-greater than has been known for many years. In Portugal the appearance of the vintage is favourable, though it is not calculated to be any thing remarkable, as the vines suffered considerably from frosts in the spring. From the unfavourable state of the Exchange, Sherries have advanced fully ten per cent.

In other articles of trade, the alterations, one way or other, is so trifling as not to merit particular notice. The market, for all descriptions of Dyewoods, continues dull. In Ashes there has been little doing; and Naval Stores continue in their former state.

Since the Royalists began to obtain the ascendancy in the Caraccas, and adjoining provinces of South America, the trade with the West India Islands has become more secure and extensive. On the other hand, the late accounts from Chili, so unfavourable to the Royal cause, must be very prejudicial to the trade with Jamaica. It must spread alarm and insecurity over the American coasts of the South Pacific Ocean, and consequently not only lesson the trade, but render any that is carried on very uncertain and insecure. Any farther revolution in that quarter, -or should the flames of civil war be lighted up in Peru,-it would go nigh to ruin the Commercial Establishments in Jamaica. As the Royalists possess the Isthmus of Darien, through which that trade is carried on, so the moment the Independents succeeded in Peru they would completely close up the route. Under these circumstances, no road would remain open but the tedious one round Cape Horn; and then the business would be carried on not as now, with people living in peace and quietness, but with nations divided into parties, and engaged in the horrors of war. Nor would the total stoppage of this lucrutative trade, or driving it into a more tedious and expensive route by Cape Horn, be the only loss, for the trade of late years has been carried on to a considerable extent by giving the Spaniards credit. Thus, at the time they pay for a former cargo, they carry away a new assortment upon credit. Thus the latter amount would run a great risk of being irrecoverably lost, or the time of payment protracted to a period very remote.

The month of July has been warm and wet, the mean temperature being 4 degrees, and the quantity of rain three quarters of an inch greater than the same month last year. The heat during the first three days was moderate, but increased till the 6th. A heavy rain cooled the air for some days; but on the 13th the Thermometer again rose above 70, gradually increasing every day till the 17th, when it stood as high as 80}.

A heavy rain again produced a reduction of temperature till the 24th. On that day the Thermometer rose to 76, and next day to 72. The 26th was very wet ; and it rained more or less every day till the end of the month. The Barometer has been pretty steady, and generally above the average height; and the Hygrometer also some degrees higher than July last year. The point of deposition corresponds nearly to the mean minimum temperature; and the

mean of ten morning and evening differs from the mean of the maximum and minimum only about half a degree. The rain that fell early in the month proved very beneficial to crops of every kind that of the latter part of the month has been very much the reverse.
