COMMERCIAL REPORT.-November 12, 1821. Sugar.-The Sugar market continues unsteady and depressed, particularly for the coarse descriptions. The stock in London is 2100 casks less than at the same period last year, and the average price about 6s. 6d. lower. The price of very fine sugar, compared to the inferior descriptions, is good; but the present state of the sugar market, taking it altogether, affords a very gloomy prospect for the planter. The accounts from all the different Islands, and in more particular manner from Jamaica, are, as far as
regards the ensuing crop, very unfavourable. Excessive dry weather, till a very late - period in the season, has scorched the canes to a degree that they cannot recover; and in
the Islands which had suffered less' severely from that cause, severe gales of wind in the e beginning of September have done great injury to many plantations. Provisions, also,
are become very scarce in many places, and thus an additional expence, at a period when he can so ill afford it, is heaped upon the planter. The cultivation of the foreign colonies, from the increase of the slave trade, proceeds with great activity, and the French Government are now seriously turning their attention to a plan long since recommended
to their attention, namely, to cultivate sugar and other colonial produce by colonies estaIblished in Africa.
Cotton.-In the London market the inquiry for the home market has been limited, but has increased for exportation. In Liverpool, the market has of late been dull, and prices declined about per lb. The sales are, however, considerable, and in general well attended.
Coffee. The market for Coffee, after a considerable decline, has become more steady, and a small advance has been maintained in the late sales. Havannah coffee is in request—St Domingo less so. The public sales in general go off briskly. In Liverpool, however, the coffee market is less brisk than in London.
Corn.--The price of grain has declined to nearly the level at which it stood before the late speculations and unnecessary alarm raised the market. Vast quantities of grain were bought up in Russia, Poland, and the Austrian States, upon the first alarm of a bad harvest in Great Britain, and on these purchases there must be a very great loss. The harvest is now completely concluded, and although the crops in some places are short, and in others have suffered a little from the weather, still upon the whole the crop may be stated as a fair average.
Rum.—The market for Rum is in a ruinous and depressed state. The stock in London is upwards of 35,000 casks, 15,000 more than at the same period last year. Sales can scarcely be effected at any price. Brandy has advanced considerably, and the market is more steady. Geneva is very hat. Indeed the immense quantity of this latter article smuggled into Great Britain has rendered the sales of the legally imported article altogether impracticable. Logwood remains steady. . Pot-Ashes are in fair demand. The sales of Tobacco are limited. In Oils very little business is doing. Good Ilides continue in demand. Palm Oil has declined in price. Dyewoods are steady. Carolina Rice is in limited demand. Other articles of commerce do not require to be particularly noticed from our quotations.
The advices from foreign markets are by no means cheering. The Mediterranean continues to be agitated by civil war, and rebellion. Spain and Portugal, from prohibitory decrees, and a pestilential fever in the former, renders all commercial transactions doubtful, insecure, and unprofitable. Spanish South America is agitated throughout with political convulsions and changes; and in the Brazils the seeds of revolution are so thickly sown, as to leave scarcely any room to doubt that these will produce the most fatal consequences, and a state of anarchy and confusion. The agricultural interests in Great Britain are suffering so severely as to keep the home trade in a depressed and unprofit
The troubles in Ireland are also most detrimental to the commercial prosperity of that country. Vol. X.
