COMMERCIAL REPORT.

COLONIAL PRODUCE.-Sugars.--There was a steady, but not extensive, demand for Muscovades last week ; prices without variation, with the exception of the middling kinds, which declined a little. This forenoon the market is dull, and sellers have given way 6d. to Is. per cwt. ; this reduction facilitated the sales, as there were more purchases than for some time previously. The quantity of sugar imported into London during last year was 167,401 hhds. 15,856 tierces, and 7535 barrels. Coffee. This article has been improving for some time, and is now in brisk and general demand, and the prices rapidly advancing. The advance in the course of last week was 6s. to 8s. per cwt. Cotton. There has been some improvement in the demand for cotton; the request appears to be on speculation anticipating an export demand. The quantity of cotton imported into London in 1819 is 4313 barrels, and 331 hhds. Rum.-There have been extensive purchases of rum since last week, and holders are very sanguine in the antici. pation of higher prices. The quantity of rum imported into London, during the year 1819, was 37,245 puncheons, and 880 hhds. Oils. There are about twelve vessels arrived from Greenland, and one from Davis' Straits, which bring rather unfavourable accounts respecting the success of these fisheries. The oil market is in consequence rather heavy. * Tobacco. There are renewed inquiries after tobacco, and several cargoes of Virginia are reported sold at 36s. to 38s. the 100 lbs. manifest weight.

EUROPEAN PRODUCE.-Hemp and Flux remain steady in price. Tallow continues to decline, but the market remains heavy, notwithstanding the late great depression in prices. The late demand for Brundy has subsided, and there are very few purchasers even at a reduction of fully ld. per gallon. The purchases of Geneva continue inconsiderable. London, August 8.

BRITISH MANUFACTURES.We are happy to learn from Sheffield, that the trade of that place has materially revived, and that there is every prospect of a farther amend. ment. Many able hands, in the different mechanical branches of the place, who have been for these nine or twelve months past supported by parochial support, are now in full work ; and there is a fair prospect that many hundred others now unemployed will be taken on in the course of a few weeks,

To the agreeable accounts respecting manufacture contained in the London journals, we are happy to add, that the fall trade is promising. More business than usual was done at Glasgow last week. Intelligence has been received within these eight days that fine mulls and lawns, and some very fine light jaconets, have sold readily in the Calcutta market, and brought from 40 to 45 per cent, gross profit. In Manchester the stocks in the hands of the manufacturers are very low ; a proof that goods have been selling; though there has been little bustle about it,--Glasgow Chronicle.
