FROM the middle of May to this date, the weather has been warm and genial in a greater degree than we ever remember it to liave been at this season; the therrnometer in the shade having been often above 70°. In our younger days, we have often heard of the ploughmen beginning their yoking at two or three o'clock in the morning in the month of May, resting from breakfast time to mid-afternoon, and finishing their task in the cool of the evening. This, which, if true, we were inclined to ascribe to the indolence of our bear-seed cultivators, whose labours were chiefly confined to seed-time and harvest, has been rendered sufficiently credible, and the expediency of the practice justified, by the high temperature of the greater part of last month, as well as of the present. There are yet some complaints of the grub; from the ravages of which, however, the crops are fast recovering; and in some places the hay-crop will be deficient in clover plants; but, upon the whole, the prospect of both an early and abundant harvest in our fields, orchards, and gardens, is extremely flattering. There has been but little rain for this month past, yet the drought does not seem to be hurtful, though a supply of moisture must be wanted for making the turnip-seed vegetate,-a crop for which the labour is now in great forwardness. The corn-markets declined during May, but have since begun to look up, especially for wheat. Of this grain there is understood to be less than usual on the fields, partly owing to the lateness of last harvest, and the unfavourable weather at the end of autumn, which, as well as the wetness of the summer, prevented the fallows from being completed for sowing in due season, and partly owing to the small extent of the spring sown wheats, which had very generally failed in this climate for the last two seasons. Grass-fed meat begins to come into the butcher-market, so that prices have given way since the middle of last month. A pretty good leg of lamb, weighing from 6 to 8 lbs., can now be got in our market for 3s. or 4s., and will soon be sold for the half of it. Old potatoes are still at a moderate price ; but the new, now selling per pint at as much as the lamb-leg, are still confined to the tables of the wealthy.

COMMERCIAL REPORT. COLONIAL PRODUCE.--Sugars.--Although the demand since our last report has remained pretty steady, and considerable business has been done, prices have been rather on the decline. The change of wind last week, preventing farther arrivals from the West Indies, the holders of Muscovadoes have been less eager to make sales, and though several sales have been effected at prices a shade lower, particularly strong sugars, about 80s. to 82s., the depression has not been general. In foreign, little business by private contract has recently been done ; last week, at a public sale of St Domingo Muscovadoes, they went off at low rates, ordinary brown, 41s. to 42s., good brown, 428. 6. to 45s.' Coffee. The prices of coffee have fluctuated greatly, on account of reports of a rise on the Continent; and towards the end of last month, the prices advanced from 2s. to 3s. ; but have since suffered a depression of 2s. and the market is stated to be heavy at the decline. Teas.—The sale at the India House is expected to close about Thursday next: there are great fluctuations in the prices. The Boheas have gone off 2d. and the Congous idd. under the prices of last sale. Cotton. The prices have varied little since our last, and the market remains very heavy. The East India Company have declared a sale of 19,000 bags for the 26th instant; and it is expected the quantity will be increased before the day of sale. The imports into Great Britain last month were 80,709 bags. Ricc.-Thé market has been heavy and declining, but a sale at the India House lately was higher than had been expected. It consisted of 6652 bags Bengal, common quality 18s. to 19s., good 21s. to 228. East India description, however, on account of the late large arrivals, have since been greatly depressed. Rum.—

The rum market has been heavy for some time past, and the prices declining. Tobacco. There has been little demand for exportation. The stock in London is, however, confined to a few houses, who will not submit to any depression. Oils.

- The prices of whale oil are merely nominal, on account of the failure of a great speculation. Small parcels of Greenland for immediate use continue to be sold at reduced prices. There have been considerable arrivals of sperm, and prices in consequence have declined. Every other description of oil may be stated heavy.

EUROPEAN PRODUCE.—Hemp, Flax, and Tallow. Extensive arrivals of tallow being expected, a great stagnation has taken place in the demand ; prices are Is. to 2s. lower, and the market heavy at the depression. The request for hemp has been limite ed, and prices have declined at St Petersburgh. Flax is in limited demand, and prices little varied. Brandy and Geneva.-There has been a great reduction in the price of brandy. Five puncheons real good cogniac, landed this year, sold on the 26th ult. at an average of 8s. 7d. per gallon. Prices have since that date declined materially, and the market is still heavy. Geneva is also a little lower.—June 9.
