The tumults which have disgraced town and country on this subject will be forgotten, amid the still graeter agitations of private property that will attend the renewal of war-while the war will naturally fix a price on corn, independent of the operation of this new statute.
STATE OF TRADE.
Lloyd's Coffee-House, March 20, 1815. That the merchant who supplies all the world with commodities valuable and useful, should maintain his tranquillity, and carry on his business without disturbance, when all the world around him is disturbed, is absolutely impossible. The value of every thing in which he deals, fluctuates with events. His money is worth more or less :~ his commodities are worth more or less: his credits are more or less certain of payment, according to the ups and downs of kingdoms and states with which he has intercourse. The recent burst of politics, therefore, by which the renewal of hostili-" ties in the utmost bitterness of spirit is brought before the eyes of every man, strongly affects the merchant; the probable 1805.. demand or prohibition of the commodities in which he deals, the facility, or difficulty of conveying them; the cost of transit, with a thousand other particulars,, fill the merchant's bosom with anxiety.
The ratification of Peace with America, -now a most fortunate circumstance for both countries-has caused a decline in the prices of cotton, tobacco, and all other articles imported from the United States, which would have been extremely extensive and rapid, had not the stocks on hand of those articles been so greatly diminished by continued consumption without supply, that those who are in the habit of using them cannot wait for fresh importation. On the other hand, the late events in France, the progress of Buonaparte inclusive:the heart of that country, with the certainty of his reaching Paris without opposition, Weeks have raised the price of French goods of every description, because the prospect of supply from that country is rendered extremely obscure. Brandy is raised: so is whatever is extensively in demand in time of war: grain-provisions-saltpetre

COTTON felt the peace with America more than any thing else. The probability of vessels arriving, the looking forward to supplies from various quarters-the want of money included, have rendered this article of uncertain demand. The manufacturers must buy: their exhausted stocks must be replenished: particular kinds, therefore, only in request, and others sometimes much enquired after, for the moment absolutely overlooked.
In fact, almost every thing has been overlooked, for several days past. What is the news of the morning? and What is the news of the evening? has been much of the employment of merchants, as well as of The suddenothers, and not without cause. ness of events has absorbed all the time and disposition that might have been employed in consideration; and enquiry of others, as to facts, and inferences, has taken place of that promptitude at doing business, which distinguished the merchant from the mere pretender to com

Esser. The wheat plants which have all along made such a fine appearance, now turn somewhat yellow, for want of dry weather. The planting of beans and peas, is quite compleat; and in some places these plants begin to make their appearance. But little spring corn on the strong lands is already sown. Since our last we have complaints of the rot among the breeding sheep, cousequently a loss in the lambs. Horses of all kinds are cheaper.linen Store pigs are lower in price, but the spring ones very dear. Turnips, from the mildness of the season, continue very plentiful.
