COMMERCIAL REPORT.—Aug. 11, 1818.
Sugar. Towards the close of last month, the demand for Sugars, notwithstanding the numerous arrivals, became extremely lively, and extensive tales were effected in all the different ports at advanced prices. In London 6000 hogsheads were sold in one day. Since then the demand has been limited, and the market rather on the decline. The importation is now at its height, and the arrivals numerous. Owing to the backward season, crops were very late this year; and as the rains were commenced at the date of the Hx advices from the Leeward Islands, fears are entertained that part of the crop would be left on the ground—certainly it could not be finished without injuring the crop of the succeeding year. Foreign Sugars are in good request Ilcfincd are more in demand Cnff'ee. In this article there has been great fluctuations. The price advanced uncommonly high; and notwithstanding repeated depressions, it still recovers, and even goes higher than before. The price at one period exceeded 170s. per cwt. The demand froc the Continent has been very great The late high prices can scarcely be mentioned. T
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 advances, 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 tarly harvest. Already the fields arc 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. Hum, Brandy, and Hollands. There has been several considerable purchases
of Rum, 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 Dyewoodt, 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 die Caraccas, and adjoimng 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 I lorn; 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.
