COMMERCIAL REPORT.-Dec. 9, 1820. Sugar.-The demand for Sugar has for some time past been steady. Considerable purchases have been of late made, but without any improvement in price. No supplies of any importance can now be expected at market for several months to come, except from Demerara, and if the demand continues as it has done for several months past, it is scarcely possible but that the price of Sugar must advance. The sale of refined goods is now confined to the demand for home consumpt; the season for export to the northern ports being now closed. Coffee. The sales of Coffee may be said to be limited to the quantity used for the internal supply of Great Britain. There has been no shipments of late to the continent of any consequence, but as the spring advances, that will in all probability be considerable. Prices remain nominal, but without any disposition to droop. Cotton. The sales of Cotton have been considerable, both for home consumpt and exportation ; but as the holders evince a disposition to sell, the price has rather given way. Cotton may be stated as being still on the decline, without any prospect of revival. The importation has increased this year. The imports of the first eleven months of last year amounted to 518,095 bags, and for the first eleven months of this year 553,171 bags; making an increase of 35,076 bags. Boweds and Brazils are at present in the greatest request. Indigo.-The demand for Indigo has of late been extensive, yet the market remains firm. The holders generally anticipate an improvement both in the supply and in the demand. Tobacco. The price of tobacco may be stated on the decline, and the market dull, notwithstanding the large contract for the French government. The stock on the 1st December 1819 was 12,591 hhds, and that on the 1st instant was 15,344, making an increase of 2,753 hhds. Irish Provisions are improving in demand and in price. Butters in particular were in brisk demand last week, and the advance in price was maintained. The arrivals of Tallow are extensive beyond precedent, and no alteration in the demand.
In Hemp and Flax there is no variation. Tar may be purchased on lower terms. In Greenland Oils, the price may be stated at a little improvement. Fine Wheat experienced a brisk demand. Inferior qualities were dull. Fine parcels of Barley command high prices. The sale of Oats is dull and languid, and the price declining. Grey and White Pease are lower. In Clover Seed there is little or no business doing. Rum continues nominal in price. Brandy is rather lower. In Geneva there is no variation.
The manufactures of the country are considerably revived, but we believe the labourer is deriving greater advantages from that revival than the employer. Any increase on the demand in foreign markets from export trade is more than counterbalanced by the niisfortunes of the agricultural interests, but it is anticipated, that next year will restore things to their proper level, and give fresh life and vigour to all our establishments, agricultural and commercial. The political convulsions taking place in different countries, are by no means favourable to the extension of our foreign trade. Weekly Price of Stocks, from 3d to 24th Nov. 1820.
