COLONIAL PRODUCE.-Sugars. Since our last report, the market has been lively, and prices of Muscovadoes have risen 3s. to 58. per cwt. Refined have also advanced 2s. to 4s. In foreign sugars little doing, and prices unvaried. The import duty on Muscovado will from this date be 30s. in place of 27s. per cwt. The aggregate average price for the four months preceding 5th instant, was 50s. 8£d. exclusive of duty. The importation of sugars in 1817, is about 10,000 casks less than the preceding year; but the stock in London is about 3000 casks more. Coffee. The imports in 1817 are nearly the same as in the year preceding ; but the stocks are considerably decreased. The demand this week has greatly increased; St Domingo is quoted at 97s. and 98s. one report states 100s. ; but it is believed the latter is premature. All other kinds are in great request; and an advance of fully 25. has taken place on every description of Jamaica. Cotton. The imports of cotton into London, Liverpool, and Glasgow, in 1817, were 476,354 bags ; in 1816, 370,863 bags. Prices are a little ligher; Pernambucos, 2s. 1 d. to 2s. 14d.; Maranhams, 2s. to 25. 0.1d. ; Demeraras, 2s. to 2s. 1d. ; Surats, 14d. to 15d. Rum.-The prices have experienced a considerable decline, without facilitating sales, the opinion of its being admitted into France being now completely abandoned. Few transactions of any consequence have taken place. Tobacco.-Little business doing, and prices without variation. Oil.-In Greenland oil there is little alteration. Sperm is expected to advance, as there is not above a month's supply in the market.
EUROPEAN PRODUCE.-Himp, Flar, and Tallow.--Hemp is in brisk demand, and has risen considerably in price. Flax is also in request. The demand for tallow has given way, and prices are ls. to 2s. lower. Brandy and Hollands.-Both are again in limited demand, and prices have given way.
British Manufactures. We have again pleasure in noticing the continuing improvement in trade, which the approach of spring is expected greatly to accelerate. The free trade to India promises to be very advantageous to the manufactures of Glasgow, &c. ; from whence sewed muslins, and richly embroidered silk shawls, to rival those of Cashmere, are sent out to the Company's possessions; and the excellence of the British machinery bids fair to enable our manufacturers to outdo the natives in every branch of the cotton trade. Considerable quantities of pullicates, and other goods, are now exported from Glasgow to the Black States in St Domingo. Some descriptions of Glasgow manufactures are now selling 30 per cento above what they were bringing five months since. --Jan. 9.

At this season the field labours of the agriculturist are either suspended or confined to the least important operations. It is within doors, in thrashing out his crop, and feeding his cattle, that he is chiefly employed, enjoying himself moderately, it is to be hoped, at his leisure hours, in the society of his friends and relatives, after the manner of his forefathers. There has been little variation in either the
orn or meat markets since our last. The prices of grain, though not, perhaps, too high for the fair remu. neration of the farmer, after a harvest by no means abundant, are still too high, we fear, for the lower class of consumers, whose wages are not likely soon to rise to their former rate. Their condition, however, is certainly improved since the beginning of last year, as we do not now hear much of want of employment, nor of the necessity of providing it by means of parish assessments or charitable donations.
