grapes ; and in Spain, from a dry chilling east wind.-In any other of the usual articles of commerce commonly enumerated by us, there is no alteration sufficient to claim notice. -- Tallow has fluctuated greatly in price. The supply of Fruit from foreign parts is unusually early and fine, and the crops of Apples in Scotland are very large, and the qualities particularly fine.

Spanish America continues in the same convulsed and distracted state, and consequently our trade to that quarter limited and insecure. There seems to be a great deal of business doing up the Mediterranean. The shipments from Britain to that quarter have for some time back been very extensive. The wood trade also from the British North American colonies to the ports of Clyde is becoming very great, and daily increasing.
