MONTIILY COMMERCIAL REPORT. IT is with great pleasure we announce the arrival of a valuable Eait India feet, confiting of

fixteen sail, together with eleven whalers, under convoy of the Sampson tuan of war. They left St. Helena the 1st of February; our next will probably give fome particulars of their cargoes, &c. &c. We regret to find that the Adamant's convoy out lo India, has arrived at a very bad market, being overstocked with all kinds of European merchandiae, consequently the goods sent out by this fleet must leave a considerable lors to the proprietors.

The safe arrival of the homeward-bound Jamaica fileet just now has brought a large quase tity of sugars into our market, notwithstanding which the article has sold at 1s. per cwt. highet than last month, and the public fales have been very considerable, as between the 17th and 28th the following goods were sold, viz.

The average price of fugars (in the London Gazette) ending the 15th inst, was 365. 41. per cwt. exclusive of the duty of Customs paid or payable thereon, on the importation thereof ido Great Britain. The quantity of West India coffee fold between the 17th and 28th was 1034 hogsheads. 99 barrels, and 4955 bags, from 51. to 71. 2$. 6d. per cwt. This article has lowered in price neurly is. per cwt. fince our laft, no doubt owing to the want of an exportation to the northera ports of Europe, those being the principal markets for both our fugars and coffee.

MONTHLY AGRICULTURAL REPORT. THE wet and severe weather experienced in the early part of the preceding month, impe

ded, for a cime, the spring operations of plouglring and fowing, which, fince the season has been more tivourable, have been renewed with much vigour. A large proportion of seed is already in the ground, making kind and good work. The low (fens) und high drier foils were leldom ever, at this season, in a better condition; and the late warm weather has much recovered the appearance of the winter crops, and of grafies, both natural and artificial, which were considerably retarded in their growth by the prevailing cold and froły winds ---In Eng. land and Wales, Wheat wverages per quarter 76s. 6a ; Barley, 30s. 70. ; Cats, 273 101.

Tle bach wardness of the spring has also occafioned a large consumption of hay, although a large stock on hand sells at an advanced price; and to the lume cause may be attributed the reduction in value at the late Fairs, of Lean Stock, Sture theep, Dairy Cows, &c.-In Sinions field Market, Bcef fetches from 4s. to 5s. 1d. per stune of 81b.; Mucron, 4s. 81. to gs. 64; Pork, J, 68.
