COMMERCIAL REPORT.-14th March, 1821.

Sugar. The Sugar market has for some time been very languid, and the holders anxious to effect sales. There seems no great appearance of any revival, although the quantity on hand is much reduced, and no supplies of any importance can be expected for some time. The reason of this seems to be that the demand from the Continent is greatly reduced, as several places are now carrying on a trade direct with the colonies of foreign powers. In refined goods the demand for some time was considerable, and the prices looked up; but unfavourable reports having been received from Russia, regarding some regulations which the government of that country have in view, has thrown a damp upon the Sugar market. Coffee. The demand for Coffee has been fluctuating considerably. To-day there has been a revival, and the next day the market became languid. The market may, however, be stated to be much in the same state as at the date of our last. The future prospects for the Coffee market will greatly depend upon the advices from the Continent of Europe, the political affairs of which are far from being in a settled state. Should no serious convulsions take place amongst the great European powers, the demand for Coffee may be expected to improve. Cotton. The demand for Cotton continues extensive and the market steady, inclining rather to an advance in price. The value of this article has of late sunk so low, that, if the same demand continues, the price must certainly advance. The high price abroad renders the importation of it a losing concern to those who take it in exchange for goods, or purchase it with the proceeds of the sales of these goods; while the freights obtained for carrying it from the United States of America to this market are so exceedingly low as to injure deeply the shipping interest engaged in it. Still the quantity raised and brought to market is very great, though the arrivals for this year have been smaller than to the same period of last. Corn.-The Grain market may be stated generally to be firm, and the different kinds in fair demand. The condition of the labouring artisan and manufacturer being greatly meliorated, will certainly tend to increase the demand for every article of agricultural produce, and consequently raise the value of the same, which, in the course of a short time, will tend to remove the severe distress under which the agricultural interests of this country have for some time laboured, and yet labour. The prosperity of our agricultural interest is the foundation-stone of our national strength. When it suffers, all other interests must suffer.-The market for Tobacco is greatly depressed. Oil is on the decline. Beef is dull, and Pork in considerable request. Rum remains exceedingly low, and in Brandy and Geneva there is no alteration. Our general review of British Commerce is unavoidably postponed to next month, and in the → meantime we subjoin an account of the present state of the manufacturing business in one of the chief districts of Scotland, which may be relied on. In Paisley, weavers' wages have risen somewhat, and work is plenty. The manufacturers of Paisley give employment not only to men, but also to a vast number of women and children, and all have now constant employment. The womens' work is not better paid than formerly; draw-boys' wages have risen within these few months from 2s. 6d. and 3s. to 3s. 6d. and 4s. a-week. The weaving has advanced, though not a great deal, yet every person gets work, and is not obliged to be idle between webs, as lately. The weaver's situation has, of course, become vastly more comfortable than it was two years ago. However, as in the higher branches of work, a web takes several months to prepare and finish, many of the best weavers have not yet reaped the benefit to result from their new engagement. : Though the situation of the operatives be improved, as above stated, there are few sales of any consequence, and the selling prices of goods have not advanced. The manufacturers have been speculating in anticipation of a brisk spring trade, which has not commenced. Though Cotton-Yarn is exceedingly low, Silk, which is the most expensive part of our higher sorts of manufacture, has advanced in price 25 per cent. The goods must, therefore, come into the market at a higher price, and whether the demand shall Justify the expectations of the manufacturer, and reward him for his extra expense, time ** will determine.
