COMMERCIAL REPORT.-Oct. 10th 1818.

Sugar. The market for this article has for several weeks been very dull; and since the beginning of last week, the prices have given way considerably. The falling in the London market is about 6s. per cwt. and at this decline the market is very heavy. The arrivals for some time past have been very considerable; but the whole of the crops for the present year may now be considered as at market, as the small quantities of produce left in the islands is scarcely worth taking into account. The quantity in the London warehouses is about 4000 less than at the same period of last year. It is therefore extremely probable that the market will soon experience a revival. No business is doing in Foreign Sugars. The Refined market has been very heavy, chiefly because the exports to Russia are closed for the season. The holders are therefore endeavouring to effect sales at a decline in price.- Coffee. The great depression of prices on this article has again brought speculators into the market ; but the prices do not vary much. Some extensive purchases, which had been made for cash, were brought forward, and sold at a considerable advance. The general opinion is, that the price of this article is now about the lowest rate it is likely to be for some time. The market may be considered at present as very dull.-Cotton. The extensive sales of this article by the East India Company in London have depressed the market in the capital. At the other ports the market is heavy, but the holders are less disposed to effect sales at reduced rates. Activity being now restored to the vast manufaca turing districts around Manchester, by the return of the workmen to their duty, will no doubt tend to keep the market steady, in the face of the extensive arrivals. The quantity imported into the United Kingdom last month amounted to 65,164 bags, which gives an increase of 42,747 bags during last month. The prodigious quantity of Cotton imported this year is sufficient to account for the present dulness in the market. The manufactures are all in full activity.-Corn. Although the ports are now shut, from the Bidassoa to the Eyder, yet it has had no effect on the London markets. Grain, which had advanced considerably in price, may now be considered as at a stand ; and the abundant harvest over all the northern parts of Great Britain and Ireland will abundantly repay the labours of the farmer in these parts, and fully make up for the deficiency in the southern counties of England, occasioned by a severe drought. The harvest in Scotland may now be considered as completely over, and the grain housed in excellent order. Potatoes, which had greatly advanced in price, from extensive speculations made to supply the London market, are now returning to their proper level, and the greedy speculators have paid most severely for their folly, having been compelled to sell the article in London cheaper than what it cost them in Scotland, besides a prodigious loss, occasioned by the potatoes spoiling from being too soon raised.-Rum, Brandy, and Hollands. The demand for Rum is again become'linited, and the prices, as might have been anticipated, are on the decline. Pur. chases can now be made lower than our quotations. Brandy is merely nominal in price. Geneva is without any variation.- Tobacco. The market for Tobacco is exceedingly heavy, and purchases may be made at a decline in price. The report of exceeding high prices in London has brought most extensive supplies from the United States. The stock is, in consequence, 9144 hhds. Oil. The demand for Whale Oil has been regular and steady, and the prices may be quoted as gradually improving. Linseed may be quoted at a small decline. In other kinds there is no variation. Tar is in demand.-In rough Turpentine there is no alteration.-Pitch and Rosin are without variation.---The demand for T'allow has been limited.--Flax is in limited request, and the price of Hemp remains steady. On the other articles of commerce there is no alteration worth stating.

PRICES CURRENT. October 3, 1818.
