COMMERCIAL REPORT.-September 11, 1821.
Sugar. There has been a good deal of business lately done in sugars, but without any material alteration in price, except for the soft qualities which have sold at a decline in price. At Liverpool, a considerable quantity brought to market remained unsold. In refined goods there has been a considerable demand, both for home consumption and exportation, and the market has accordingly remained firm. The supplies for the year may now be considered to be at market, for what remains is certainly but trifling, and the appearances for the crop of the following year amongst the West India Islands, are very unfavourable. Exceeding dry weather was injuring the canes greatly. The prices of Havannah sugars are considerably lower.
Cotton. The market for cotton, for some days past, has been flat. Extensive public sales are advertised at Liverpool, which in all probability has rendered the sales by private contract very limited. The price of Boweds and New Orleans have remained firm, but Brazils has declined in price about a farthing per pound. A good deal of the latter has been brought to market. Sea Islands have sold at a lower rate, and other kinds have the appearance of declining in value.
Coffee. The market for coffee remains extremely dull and languid. Sales can with difficulty be effected, even at a considerable decline. Finer qualities indeed being scarce, command former prices; but all others are greatly reduced in value. In London some appearances of advance and activity in the market lately appeared, but it was but of momentary duration. In short, the coffee market is very unpromising.
Corn. Since the commencement of the harvest, there has been a considerable bustle and activity in the grain markets, and prices may be stated as having advanced considerably. The crop will certainly in many places be short, but we do not think there is much cause for alarm. The weather till this time, has been very favourable for the operations of reaping; and if it continues good for a short period longer, the harvest will be generally and well conducted. The grain is ripe, and ready for the sickle, and is much earlier than from the backwardness of the spring could have been expected. The crops on the continent are abundant.
Rum, which had some appearance of advancing in price, has again sunk back.— Brandy remains firm at the prices quoted.-Geneva remains without any alteration.— Whale-oil is dull, and prices nominal.-In Tallow there has been some improvement in demand and price. India Rice is lower. The sales of Tobacco are limited; and though the stock of Hides in the importers' hands in the Liverpool market is almost exhausted, the market remains languid. The Timber market remains flat, and former prices can with difficulty be obtained.
The accounts by last mail from Jamaica, are very unfavourable. The insurrections in South America render every market in that quarter insecure and uncertain; and the same may be said of all the most active markets in the Mediterranean, from the political convulsions there taking place. The manufacturing interests in Great Britain continue in full employment, but whether to advantage or not, time only can determine.
