MONTHLY COMMERCIAL REPORT. BRITISH FRADE AND MANUFACTURES.-A numerical evidence of the present state of

trade, may be deduced from the number of bankruptcies in the London Gazette, insertegi in this Magazine.

They amounted this month, in 1810, to 973
The same month

in 1809, to 130

in 1808, to 100 Ditto

in 1807, to 97 Ditto

in 1806, to 65 Ditto

in 1805, to 87 Ditto

in 1801, to 60 Besides - stoppages and compositions equal in number to half the traders in the kingdom! These failures throughout the kingdum, have wonderfully effected the manufacture of every description of goods, and a general want of confidence exists between the manufacturer and the export merchant. The speculators at Liverpool have completely overstocked the dile ferent rarkets of South America, where, at present, English manufactured articles can be purchased at a loss of 20 per cent. to the exporter, with the exception of few articles, on which little or no credit could be obtained bere.

PORTUGAL.--A proclamation has been published at Lisbon, informing those who wished to put their valuables in a place of safety, that the ship Vasco da Gama, and ibe frigate Phænix, have been appointed for receiving money, plate, jewels, and other valuables; and that they may also deposit the same in any of the English ships of war stationed in the post. Wines in the country are uncommonly scarce and dear, and likely to continue so, as the last vintage has proved very unproductive, and the peasantry unable, from the state of the county at present, to attend to the vineyards, &c. &C.A slight slick of an earthquake was experienced at Lisbon, on the 26th of October, but without doing any material damage.

FRANCE.-The most inipurtant article in these journals, is a Decree of Bonaparte, dated Fontainbleau, the 19th of last month, of a most peculiar character, in which the ordinary notions of discretion and policy are abandoned, for the sake of the gratification of the malignant passions.' In this document it is declared, that English manufactures, found either in the public custom houses, or in private possession, shall be burnt. This law is not only extended to France, each department of which is separately named in it, but to every state and king. dom occupied by the French troops--Switzerland, Italy, Naples, and Spain, and to all the remote dependencies. The penal part enacts, that whocver'shall be found in disobedience of this Decree, to introduce English manufactures, shall be branded in the hand, and shall be liable to imprisonment for a term not less than three and not more than ten years. Sonaparte has also ordered that so merchant in his empire shall be allowed to endorse any Bill of Exchange payable in England, or drawn upon any person in the British dominions.

At FRANKFORT, the utmost distress prevailed, in consequence of the decree having been enforced, that ordered the seizure of all goods, which the proprietors had not included - in their declarations, whereby they would have been only subjected to the payment of the extra duties. The place was crowded with French custom-house officers, and a general search had taken place, when there were found immense quantities of goods, which had sot been enumerated in the declarations made to the government; the consequence of which was that they were all seized, in order to be sold for French account. Yet, notwithstanding all the' severe decrees of Bonaparte, we import and consume their brandies, wines, and other French products, all of which are paid for by bills of exchange on London! This impsit trade from France into this country requires parliamentary investigation, as it is most cer tainly a lasing concern of great magnitude to the United Kingdom. Brandy sells here from 258. to 28s. per galion, and French wines from 901. to 1001. per hogshead! Whereas the wine of Portugal, and brandy of Spain, would be a good substitute for them.
