AGRICULTURAL REPORT.

SINCE the beginning of this month we have enjoyed a few days of genial woa. pher, which has already produced a happy change on the appearance of the crups; yet their progress is thought to be nearly a month behind what it is in favour. able years at this period of the season. But it would be rash, on this account, to prediet a late harvest, from which we have suffered so much the last two years. As vegetation in this climate, when too early, seldom fails to experience a check from late frosts, we would rather hope, if the summer months be propitious, for both an early and abundant crop. The injury sustained from the severity of the last winter, is, however, in many cases irremediable. About two-thirds of some large flocks, even of grown sheep, have fallen ; and the loss of lambs on the high grounds would not probably be over estimated at the half of the whole.

Cattle for grazing, and sheep, have been selling at prices considerably advanced ; the former having been worth about 8s. per stone, of 17 pound avoirdupois, and the latter higher than last year by 20 per cent. or more. The lateness of the pastures has since occasioned some dulness in both. Grazing lands annually let for the season, may be rated at much the same value as last year, though that value depends so much on situation, and also on speculation, as scarcely to afford sufficient grounds for comparison. It would appear, however, that in a season when stock meets a ready sale, and must be bought for grass at rather high prices, the only inducement to rent grass enclosures must be the hopes of a still greater rise of prices, and, of course,

a pretty general belief in the improving state of the country. Butcher meat is now worth about 9s. per stone.

The corn markets are gradually falling ; large supplies of foreign grain have already arrived ; and as the ports must now covtinue open till the middle of August, and from the Sound list it appears our merchants are sufficiently upon the alert, it is probable that prices will become more moderate during the summer, unless it should prove as unpropitious as the last two. We subjoin the fiars for East Lothian, which were omitted in our last.

COMMERCIAL REPORT.

COLONIAL PRODUCE.-Sugars. The market during the month has continued heavy, and a still farther depression of prices has been submitted to. The supply of strong sugars, however, during last week, was inadequate to the demand, and they, of course, support their prices. Very little business is doing in the refined market ; some few purchases of lumps have been made for the Russia market, but every other description is heavy, and may be bought on lower terms. Coffee.—There has been a consi. derable advance on the coffee markets, which continues a favourite article of speculation, and prices are advancing with rapidity. The market bas risen 3s. to 5s. within these eight days. Cotton.--The sales have of late been so extensive, that the stock in London is decreasing rapidly ; but the purchases since last week have been rather limited, on account of the reports of extensive arrivals at Liverpool, and the expectation of large supplies from India to the London market. Rum. In this article, which has been heavy during the month, there is now more business doing ; the reduced stock is in few hands, who hold firm to their prices. Oils.---Greenland and South Sea oil remain without al., teration. Sperm. has given way L. 5.

The exportation from Liverpool, in the quarter ending 5th April 1818, was : Of cotton stuffs, viz. printed and white calicoes, dimities, &c. (exclusive of stock. ings,)

29,295,010 yards Of cotton thread,

40,162 lbs. Of cotton twist,

374,877 lbs. Glasgow, May 11.Our cotton market was unusually brisk last week, more than 3000 þales having been sold.-Coffee likewise sold briskly and largely, at prices fully 5 s. per ewt. higher than at any sales this season.

EUROPEAN PRODUCE.Hemp, Flax, and Tallow. The prices of tallow have suffered a small depression. Hemp and flax are dull and lower. The exchange from St Petersburgh was, yesterday, stated on the advance; it is, however, still a shade under 12.-Brandy and Geneva are both declining. The market for brandy is so heavy, that, were sales foreed on the present languid demand, a very considerable depression in prices must be submitted to.-May 5.
