ColoniaL PRODUCE.—Sugar.—The expected supplies having arrived, and large quantities being brought into the market, prices declined considerably during the first two weeks of last month. These are, however, again improving a little, owing to considerable purchases being made for the Continent, principally for Holland and Belgium. Refined Sugars continue to meet an extensive demand, and parcels are readily sold the moment they are brought into the market. Molasses are also in brisk demand. Considerable sales of Foreign Sugars have been effected, but without any variation in prices—Rum exceedingly dull, and may be purchased at a reduction of 2d. to 3d. per gallon since our last.-Coffee continues in steady demand, without much variation in prices.—CottonPernambuco has been in considerable request, and nearly the whole in the market has been purchased for exportation; price 2s, to 2s. 1d. Other sorts without variation, thou in considerable demand—Spices—Company's Pepper, of good quality, in considerable request. A parcel was lately withdrawn at 8%. Jamaica Ginger is also in demand; price £14, 11s.--Tobacco in very limited demand, and without variation.
EURoPEAN PRODUCE.-Hemp, Flaw, and Tallow, without much variation in prices. Parcels of Hemp for arrival have been sold at £37 to £37, 15s.—Ashes very dull, and prices considerably lower.
We state again, with much pleasure, that our intelligence from the different Manufacturing districts continues favourable. Trade is reviving slowly; and the best proof of it is, that all the workmen are now in employment. Wages have also risen, though, we doubt, not yet in proportion to the prices of provisions. In Glasgow and some other places, we know for a fact, that those charitable establishments which had been formed for distributing soups, &c. have been given up, as no longer necessary.

SINCE the date of our last Report, a very favourable change has taken place in the appearance of the crops; and if the present fine weather continue for another month, we
may calculate with certainty on the commencement of a very abundant harvest.
heat of the last fortnight of June, and the late mild showers, have not only given health and luxuriance to the plants, which before that period were feeble and stationary, but seem to have called a great many into existence, almost instantaneously, and of an advanced growth, to occupy the spaces which, from the ravages of insects, and other causes, were then vacant. The price of grain, particularly of wheat, has fallen considerably ; and as the quality is so generally inferior as not to hold out much encouragement to reserve any large proportion of what remains to be worked up with the new crop, the probability is, that the market will continue to be abundantly supplied, from the anxiety of the holders to get quit of it before better grain come into the market. Yet it ought to be remembered, that what one month of most propitious weather has done, another of an opposite character may in a great degree counteract ; and in our northern climate much must depend upon the weather for three months to come—The harvest has already begun in the south of France, and in some other parts of the Continent, and from all quarters the Reports are favourable—Hay is generally a good crop, but the saving of it has been retarded, in this part of the island, by the closeness and humidity of the atmosphere for some days. Pastures have been very productive for several weeks, and the demand for stock has improved. The price of butcher meat has varied little for the last month.-There is now a good supply of early potatoes in the Edinburgh market, a larger quantity having been grown this season than usual. On the 8th instant, best oatmeal was still 4s. 8d. per stone of 174 lb. avoirdupois, the quartern loaf 15d., and potatoes 18d, per peck of
