COMMERCIAL REPORT. COLONIAL PRODUCE.-The transactions in our markets, during the month of April, have not been distinguished by any particular occurrence, calculated to produce greater confidence in prices of West or East India produce. The demand for Coffee has been irregular, and prices were very fluctuating. It has been observed that the prices of Jamaica and Dutch Coffees have maintained themselves proportionally higher than those of $t Domingo, Havannah, and other descriptions of foreign Coffee, which is ascribed to the small stock remaining on hand. It is stated that the crops in Cuba and Demerara will be small, and that those of Jamaica and St Domingo will not amount to average quantities. The home consumption of Coffee appears to be on the decrease, the deliveries for that purpose at Liverpool were only 260 tons ; those of last year to the same period amounted to 300 tons, whilst in 1818, 550 tons had been delivered there for home consumption, in the four first months of that year. An increase, however, is observable in the consumption of Sugar. The deliveries here have been 58,000 casks, being 16,000 more than at this time last year, and upon the whole, the trade in this article has been active throughout last month; an improvement of froin Is. to 2s. per cwt. in the prices of brown and low middling Sugars has taken place. The crops of Barbadoes and Antigua will, it is said, fall short of their ordinary amount. The sales of Cotton at Liverpool, which is the grand market for that article, were from 49,000 to 50,000 bags in April ; these were taken partly to supply the trade, in consequence of some little improvement in the demand at Manchester, and partly in speculation ; the prices of Uplands and New Orleans are about 4d. per lb. higher than in the beginning of last month. Sea Islands have declined from ld. to itd., and Brazils about d. during the same period. The quantity of American Cotton already imported this year amounts to 115,800 bags ; the total import of 1819 was 205,000 bags. Tobacco has remained pretty steady upon the whole, the inferior descriptions of Virginia and Kentucky Leaf have declined d. to £d. perlb., and ordinary stems are about fa. lower; better quali

. ties are comparatively scarce, and prices remain steady. There were no imports of Tobacco at Liverpool in April ; the stock remaining in the warehouses there is 6420 hhds. and the deliveries during the month amounted to 714 hhds. Our present stock here is rated at 10,776 hhds; namely, 10,371 Virginia and Kentucky, and 405 Marylands 5 Packages, 3 Turkey, 614 East India leaf, 10 Amersfoort, and 42 Havannah and Cuba.

EUROPEAN PRODUCE.—Prices of most export articles at St Petersburgh have continued stationary, though not much business was transacted at the time the last letters came away, in consequence of the intervening holidays. 12 hd. Flax on the spot was at 150, and on contract 145. Y. C. Tullow remained steady at the advanced price of 180 rubles on contract, and considerable business had been transacted. For Soap ditto, on the spot, 160 has been paid, and the same price was demanded on contract. London, May 2.

British MANUFACTURES.--The trade is now getting a little better in this quarter, particularly during the last week. The amendment is most conspicuous in the fancy weaving In Paisley, plaids or scarfs, and split harness shawls, have advanced about 1fd. on the shilling in the price of weaving. In Glasgow, fine plain work is easily got. Cypress weavers are in some request.-Glasgowo Chronicle, May 2.
