MONTHLY COMMERCIAL REPORT,

IN addition to the difficulties which we obferved in our laft, the woollen-trade in the weft of England at prefent labours under the want of raw-wool has become very great, from the supply not being equal even to the small demand which now exifts: the price of chains is advancing, and the difficulty of purchafing them at all, it is feared, will increafe, as the wool dealers in this part of the country are out-traded by their rivals in the north, by whom, it is well known, the Reeces of a flock of fheep are frequently bargained for a long while before the hearing feafon begins. The greater advantages derived from machinery by the manufacturers in the north, is the chief caufe of their fuperiority, as it enables them to fell goods of the fame quality cheaper than they can be made on the spot where the wool is grown. The union with Ireland is confi dered both by the merchants and manufacturers in the woollen trade as threatening them with new evils; they accordingly petitioned parliament against it, on which occafion it was ftated that "the growth of wool in Great Britain is not more than adequate to fupply the manufacturers with a quantity equal to the prefent demand, and therefore, if any wool in the raw ftate is permitted to be exported, they and their labourers must fuffer very material injury."

The discovery lately made by Mr. Thomas Foden, of a chryftalline size and paste from vege table and mineral fubitances, as a fubftitute for wheat flour in all purposes of manufacture where wheat flour is ufed, appearing likely to be attended with important advantages, and that it may fave the use of wheat flour to a very confiderable extent, the House of Commons have addreffed his Majefty to requeft that he would direct fuch further enquiry to be made on the fubject as shall be neceffary for afcertaining whether the ingredients for making this fubftitute can be furnished in fufficient quantities and at fuch reasonable prices, as to afford a fupply equal to the confumption which may be required for the various manufactures in which it may be useful; and in cale it fhall appear that the difcovery can be carried to fuch an extent as to be of confiderable national advantage, to order such sum to be advanced to Mr. Foden for that purpose, as his Majefty half judge proper, which will be made good by parliament.

Another difcovery, which promifes to be of much importance, is that of extracting ink from printed and written paper, and making other paper therefrom, fit for writing, printing, and other purpotes. A bill has been brought into Parliament for incorporating a company for the purpote of establishing a manufactory for carrying this fcheme into execution, and another bill has been brought in to exempt from duty wafte paper imported into the kingdom for the purpose of being re-manufactured, except the duty impofed by the convoy act.

Several other commercial fubjects have lately claimed the attention of Parliament, in confequence of which an act has been paffed for repealing part of the duties and drawbacks of custome on kid fkins imported, and the exemption of imported kid fkins from Excife duty on being dreffed in Great Britain; alfo an act for repealing fo much of an aft paffed in the fecond year of James L as prohibits the ufe of horfe hides in making boots and fhoes, and for the better preventing the damaging of raw hides and fkins in the flaying thereof. The ftamp duties impofed on perfumery and on licences for felling the fame, by 26 Geo. II. having fallen of very confiderably, have been repealed. A bill has been brought in for permitting the free importation of ¡infeed cakes and rape cakes in neutral ships; and likewife a bill for continuing and amending the act paired in the laft feffion for enabling his majefty to prohibit the exportation, and permit the importation of ce and for allowing the importation of other articles of grovifion, without payment of duty.

The total quantity of wheat and other kinds of grain imported into England from the 28th of December laft, to the 17th of June has been as follows; Wheat, 419,8049rs. Wheat-flour, 51.448 cwt. Rye, 55,410 grs. Rye-meal, 2,157 cwt. Barley, 10,878 rs. Oats, 108,966 grs. Oatmeal, 1,657 cwt. Peafe, 5,190 grs. Beans, 5.444 qrs. Notwithstanding the arrival of thefe confiderable quantities and the knowledge that much more is on its paffage, almost every kind of grain continues to advance, and till a reduction takes place it may be ufeful to endeavour to introduce more generally the consumption of rice, which has lately fallen five or fix fhillings per ewt. the importation thereof having been very confiderable; good Carolina rice is at prefent from 275. to 31s. and Eaft India, from 26s. to 29s. per cwt.

Raw fugars are higher fince our laft, being at prefent at the following prices, St. Kitts, 598. fo Sos. Montferrat, 58s. to 78s. St. Vincents and Nevis, 58s. to 775. Jamaica, 556. to 76s.

Cotton-wool continues to advance a little, although the quantity imported has been confiderable. Cayenne is from 3s. to 3s. 2d. Berbice, Surinam and Pernambuco, from 2s. 10d. to 3s. De merary 2s. 6d. to 25, 9d. St. Domingo, 2s. Id. to 2s. 6d. Grenada and Carriaco, 2s. 5d. to s. 8d. Barbadoes, 2s. 5d. to 2s. 7d. Martinico, 2s. 3d. to 2s. 7d.

The Bank of England have given notice that they intend to publish in the month of December next, a lift of proprietors of unpaid dividends on bank ftock, and all the government funds tranf ferable at the Bank of England to the 5th of July, 1797. All perfons entitled to fuch dividends, who are not willing that their names thould be published, fhould therefore receive the fame on, or before the ift of October next, as all dividends remaining on the books after that day muft neceffarily be included in the lift.

MONTHLY AGRICULTURAL REPORT.

WITH the exception of a week or ten days in the beginning of the month, the weather has been favourable for bringing forward the different crops; in most of the fouthern diftricts of the kingdom the fpring corns look healthy and promife to be good crops, but in a few inftances the wheats are thin, and not of fo good an appearance. In Cumberland the commencement of the month was marked with fo great a feverity, as to threaten the deftruction of every fruit of the field; but the i jury fuftained from the keen frofts and easterly winds, has been in fome meafure repaired by the more genial rains and breezes which have fince fucceeded, though the long continuance of wet and cold has confiderably hurt the greatest part of the county. The wheat crop in general has a fickly appearance, and is very thin on the ground:-Barley, on fed off turnip land, looks well, and at prefent promifes a good crop, wherever the feed has been early fown:

:

Oats, except on dry free foils, have failed much, and on many lands have entirely disappeared; circumstance which, in this county, can only be attributed to one caufe, that of the earth hav Sng been fo completely faturated with wee as to allow no grain to vegetate upon it; a cafe too general on lands of a firm clay bottom, or fubject to any kind of running fprings. The growth of the grain on fome rich loamy foils has alfo fuffered greatly from the depredations of the white fuail, or fome other destructive insects; in which cafes, the diligent farmer fhould immediately have recourfe either to night-rolling, or fprinkling quick-lime on the land fo infested during the night. sime; the latter practice has been found more efficacious, by either deftroying them at once, or cutting off their retreat, and two Cumberland bushels of good lime, are quite fufficient for an acre. The hay feafon has been fo far very good, and much grafs in the fouthern parts of the iland has been already cut and made into hay, the crops being for the most part good, but not fo full as there was reafon fome time ago to fuppofe they would be. The paftures are in general good, but the keep of lean ftock and Milch Cows has been in many places unusually fearce, probably from the circumstances of pafture land being converted to hay in marry inftances from the high prices it fetched last year.

Potatoes have in different places been confiderably injured by an infect of the grub kind, which has eaten off the stems even when of confiderable fire, and thereby completely ftopped the vegeta tion of the root. Where this has not been the cafe, they look extremely well, and in many inftances are certainly unufually forward. Larger quantities than in common years have unquef. tionably been planted.

Peas and Beans where the feed was good, are in general abundant crops and pretty full in the pod, but in fome cafes they have failed on account of the feed having been bad.

Artificial or town graffes are we believe almost every where very full crops.

The hop plantations are in general in a thriving condition, full of bine and forward in growth; but all infected with the fly, and in the strong grounds, the lice are numerous.

But although the crops of the pretent year may on the whole be fafely pronounced to be fa vourable; the pr ces or all forts of grain full keep up. Throughout England and Wales, wheat averages 120s. d. Rye, 835. Barley, 63s. 1od. Cats, 465. 1od. Beans, 75s. 2d. and Peale, 78s. 4d.

Nor has the abundance of grafs yet had much influence in reducing the prices of butcher's meat. In Carlile market, Beet felis trom sd. to gd per lb. Mutton from 4d. to Sd. and Veal from 34d. to 6d. In Smithfield by the ftone of 8ib. Bee faverages 45. to 5s.4d. Mutton 45, $d, to 5s. 6d. Veal 48. to 6s. and Pork 45. 8d. to s. 6d.

Lean ftock is fomewhat lower in fome of the provincial markets.
