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 Muscova does, they went off at low rates, ordinary brown, 41s. to 42s., good brown, 42s. 6d. 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 1d. 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 expect ed the quantity will be increased before the day of sale. The imports into Great Britain last month were 80,709 bags. Rice. The 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 22s. 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 ls. to 2s. lower, and the market heavy at the depression. The request for hemp has been limited, 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.

col, well known in the Court of Session
and caricature shops under the name of the
Kinross Lawyer. From a tradesman in
easy circumstances and of decent character;
he reduced himself, by his most litigious and
quarrelsome temper, to the state of a beg-
gar, and finally an outcast from all society.
Rather than give up his pretended rights
to the famous midden-stead, he obstinately
refused all supply from the poor funds of his
native parish: and, in order that he might
retain what he conceived would be the means
of bringing him once more within the walls
of the Parliament House, wandered about
from place to place, until at last, from his
habits of life, and his habits both of body
and mind, he became such a nuisance,
that, disowned by every relation, and shut
out from every house, it was found neces-
sary to convey him to the common prison,
which he quitted only for that asylum,
where the wicked cease from troubling,
and where the weary are at rest.
