Notwithstanding the additional duty lately laid on foreign brandies, 95,27 2 gallons have been entered at our Custom House since our last report ; lowever, the quantity under the King's locks, for security of the duties, have reduced the price so low as to have little or no effect on the consumers.

Wines of every description keep up their prices, and are not likely to lower, unless the vintage proves uncommonly abundant this year, of which there is good prospect in the dif. fereut Wine countries. The quantity lately entered at the Custom-House has been cuir siderable, viz. From Oporto..

18,317 Ditto Sherry France,

2,815 Ditto Claret Lisbon.

6,028 Ditto Lisbon and Buccillas Madeira (via the E. and W. Indies) 5,491 Ditto Madeira, making together 79,798 gallons of Wine.

It gives us pleasure to find a few articles, already imported from Monte Video direct, viz. 18,370 Hides, 50 tons Tallow, and 61701b. Cortex Peru (or Bark), which have been entered at our Custom-House. This, we hope, will be followed with a considerable import of these valuable articles.

The arrival of the Levant fleet, under convoy of the Juno, has brought a considerable quantity of merchandize from that quarter, much wanted in the London market, and which will produce good profit to the importers at this particular time, as the blockade of the Straits of ene Dardanelles, and of the port and harbour of Smyrna (announced in the Gazette), will put a stop to all kind of conimercial intercourse with these places for some time to come. One good effect it may produce, which is, that the non-importation of Smyrna Cotton Wool into this country will serve the Sales of our Jamaica Cotton, which article will prove a good sud: stitute for it, and at present is in very little demand, chiefly owing to the dull state of our manufactories at Manchester and its neighbourhood. The Woollen Manufactories of Leeds, Halifax, &c. for coarse goods, continue very brisk, and those of the finer sorts in the West of England are greatly demanded. In the North of Ireland the manufacture of all sorts of Linens, Sheetings, &c. goes on uncommonly favourable to that part of the country, and the markets very high, in all probability owing to the present state of Russia and Germany, whence an immense quantity of these articles were annually imported.

The imported duties on the 26th inst. at Cork', on Teas, refined Sugars, &c. amounted to 12,0001. while the Duty on Exports amount to only 191. Thus runs the balance of trade against that city. Copper Ore in large quantities have been lately exported to England and Wales from Dublin, to be smelted.
