RAW COTTON.—Production is greatly on the increase, and from the eagerness of the natives to improve this cultivation by the use of foreign seeds, an improvement in quality may also be expected.—The corps of this year is now commencing to arrive and is estimated at 550,000 bazar mas. During 1835-36, 591,203 bazar mas. were brought from the interior to this market, while the import in 1832-33 was only bazar mds. 260,490, 1833-34 by. mils. 218,620, and in 1834-35 bazar mis. 387,991.-The exports to England of this article have also considerably increased, and amounted in 1835-36 to bazar mas. 113,968, whilst the average of the exports of the 5 years previous 1835-36 is only 19,247 bazar mas. To China the exportation has also increased considerably and amounted during 1835-36 to 439,998 bazar mds. whilst only 167,691 bazar mils. appears to have been the average export of the five years previous to 1835-36. Shipments to China continue in active progress, but sales are less extensive.Tonnage for England becoming more available, we may expect active business for the next month in this article. Prices remain steady.
SALTPETRE.-Advices from home being favorable, and freights more abundant, we may expect some improvement in prices. The market is at the present time bare of fine qualities; the accounts from the Hazeeore districts are not favourable, the violent rains in 'ebruary and March having much injured the earth, and prices of the rough produce experienced a considerable increase. Our export to England during the last year fell short of the average of the five years previously by 55,868 bazar mas.
SUGAR.—The late favourable advices from England have improved the market, and the supply of tonnage during this month for the home markets may produce some further increase. Our crop is small owing to the injury done to the cane in the Ghazeepore districts during the last rainy season. The average export to England of the 5 years previous 1835-36 was 86,371. During 1835-36 our exports amounted to 519,584, showing an increase of more than the double. Several parcels have been sold of the fine new Benares at Rs. 9-3 to 9-6 without drawback and subject to the then anticipated duty of 3 per cent. ; on the other hand some few parcels inferior and old Sugar are selling at Rs. 8-12 ; this apparent disproportion is accounted for by these latter enjoying the drawback, having paid the inland duties under the former transit regulations.
LAC.—Lac Dye.—Our supplies are small, and the old stock having been cleared, the parcels as they arrive are taken freely. Our exports to the United States have considerably increased during the years, being 4,417 bazar maunds against an average of 857 of the 5 years previous 1835-36. The exports for England during the last year remain at about the same figure as the average of the years previous, being about 7,000 maunds.
Shell Lac.—Our exports to England in this product have also increased, but without any improvement in prices. Our stock continues heavy and prices are on the decline. The average export to England of the 5 years previous 1835-36, is 12,736 bazar maunds. The export of 1835-36 is 17,836, showing an increase of 5,063 bazar maunds during 1835-36.
RICE.-Our shipments to England during 1835-36 have fallen considerably short of the average of the former years, being for the last year 1,96,523 bazar maunds against 2,67,138. This decrease of 70,610 bazar maunds is owing to the discouraging accounts from Europe and to the high rates of freight. The crop is reported to have been full 50 per cent. above that of an average season, and prices continue to be lower than ever was known before.
W HEAT-The new grains is still detained by the lowness of the rivers; however, vessels from New South Wales begins to arrive, and as the harvest in that colony
is reported to have been a total failure, we may expect some vessels to arrive from those parts. HIDES.—Our o from the interior continue large, the demand for England is limited and the purchasers chiefly on American account. Freights becoming more available, the demand of this article for England will probably revive. LINSEED.—Continues as reported in our last. The fresh crop is expected in June and July with the opening of the rivers, and is said to be equal to the last. SPICES, DRUGS & OTHER MISCELLAN EOUS PRODUCE.—Market as usual in regard to sales during the season. METALS.–Copper.—The market continues to be in a healthy state, and prices have every tendency to a further improvement. The stock of the Mirzapore Depot is reported to be very small, and our stock in Calcutta is not excessive, and may be estimated at about 40,000 mds. of Slab and Tile, and 10,000 mids. Braziers and Sheeting. The exports to the interior of the last year, are about the average exports of the 5 years previous 1835-36. The importation in Tiles during 1835-36 has fallen short of the average import at the 5 years previous by 16,801 bazar mids; while on the contrary there is an increase of 7086 mds. in Braziers and Sheets. - Spelter.—Importation having been limited during the present month, prices experienced a slight improvement, and may now have further support, as the high price in England of the article will probably restrain any large shipments. ... Our exports to the interior during the past year have fallen considerably short of the average of the five years previous, which amounted to 54,738, while the exports of eleven months of 1835-36, amount only to 23,352. The abolition of the town and transit duties having taken effect on the 1st April, the Customs Register ceased on that day, and we are therefore only enabled to give extracts of the goods passed to the Interior during eleven instead of the whole 12 months. Lead.—The market continues dull of sale, prices are however supported. The imports of Pig were rather heavy during 1835-36, being 21,572 baz. mas. against an average of the 5 years previous of 17,763 baz. Inds. Iron.—We have already stated in our last number, that excessive imports from England have met with an increased consumption for the Interior, which sustained our prices beyond expectation. The imports from England in 1835-36 amount to 263,163 baz. inds. whilst the average of the five years previous was 152,888. Our exports to the interior are for eleven months of 1835-36 149,075 bazar mds. against an average of 101,263 bazar mds. of the 5 years previous. Tin Plates.—Without alteration since our last; the market continues depressed and the stock is considerable. Quicksilver.—The late arrivals decline in the prices.
have occasioned a
TWIST.-The market has not improved since our last, and the late arrivals have caused a further decline in the prices. The demand for Coloured Yarns is limited at present.
COTTON PIECE GOODS.—The demand continues active in Chambrics, Lappets, Jaconets and Book Muslin; put prices are depressed by the late heavy arrivals; in Shirtings and Longcloth the consumption being considerably extensive, the prices are upheld : our stock being rather small. Mull-Mulls, stock heavy and prices declining; on the other hand our stock of Book Muslin is very moderate, the same may be observed in regard to Lappets. In coloured Piece Goods consumption is increasing and our stocks are limited, and present prices are likely to be maintained.
WOOLLENS.–Market inactive, stock moderate and prices likely to improve as soon as the demand for the interior shall be renewed by the opening of the II Wer.
