AGRICULTURAL REPORT.

The frost which set in early in winter has continued since our last with unabated vigour; the intervals of open weather were few and of short continuance, and the snow lay undissolved on the branches of the most lofty trees, from the 22d December to the end of that month. Since the commencement of the present month, the thermometer has frequently fallen 20e below the freezing point, and the consequence has been fatal to turnips that remained exposed in the field, particularly the red and white varieties. The yellow still holds out, and where the Swedish turnip is not cultivated, is the only variety to be depended on for supplying the stock in the feeding byres, in the ensuing months. Few turnips have been stored for winter use. The severity of the present season may excite more attention to that department in future. Potatoes have also in many instances been too slightly covered, and many are destroyed by the frost, but the extent of the loss cannot be ascertained till the frosts are over. Young wheat has hitherto suffered little, the exceeding dry state of the soil, at and before seed-time, has been favour. able to the young plants, but they may yet have to contend with spring frosts, which are always the most hurtful to growing wheat. Should the present hard weather continue much longer, field labour will get in arrear, but from the forward state to which plowing had advanced in the end of autumn, little anxiety is as yet felt on that subject. In the feeding byre cattle come on rather slowly, and sheep that feed on turnips have im- . proved little for some time past. Prices of grain continue rather low to enable the far. mer to pay his rent and other expences, but farms are still in request, and high rents are always offered. Milch cows bring high prices ; fat cattle are also in demand ; in lean stock there is little doing. Sheep have declined a little in price since November, and as the stock of turnips will soon be consumed, fat cattle will be brought to market at an earlier period than was intended. Under a temperature so low it has been for these few weeks past, vegetation has been entirely at a stand.Jan. 17.

COMMERCIAL REPORT.

COLONIAL PRODUCE.-Sugars. The demand for Muscovades, which had been limited for some weeks, considerably revived last week, and there was more business doing than for a length of time preceding. The prices are now below a medium rate, and under what the planter can bring theni to market. Good brown sugars have been taken at 55s. and very low brown at 53s. In the refined market, although there were few purchasers, there is an appearance of a reviving trade. The stock of B. P. Sugar is now 13,850 casks more than last year's at this time, present prices 15s. per cwt. lower per Gazette average.--Cotton. The cotton market for these few weeks back has been without interest. There was this week a speculator inquiring after Bengals ; but no sales of American, Brazil, or West India descriptions have been reported.—Coffee. There has been a brisk demand for coffee for this fortnight past, and some public sales have gone off readily ; but the prices obtained were very irregular, generally the result of the sales were favourable to the coffee market; and the quantities brought forward were very considerable.

The ordinary qualities of the Jamaica and the foreign sold the most readily; the fine qualities the least so. The stock of W. I. Coffee is now 3336 tons, 1 being 1100 less than at this time last year ; present prices 14s. per cwt. lower.---Rum.

There is a great improvement in the demand for Rum, both by speculators and also by export houses, in the anticipation of an extensive spring trade. The purchases report. ed are considerable ; the improvement in the prices may be stated about 1d. per gallon, and, in several instances, parcels purchased a few weeks ago have realized a greater advance. The present stock of Rum is 19,472 puncheons, and price of proofs 2s. 3d. per gall

. Stock last year same date, 16,750 puncheons, and price of proofs 3s. per gall. Tobacco. There has been a fine inquiry after tobacco for the home trade, and prices remain steady.--Oils. The prices of Greenland Oil are higher. Rapeseed Oil is scarce, and sone speculative purchases have been made. Linseed Oil is rather lower, but extensive sales have been made.

EUROPEAN PRODUCE.—There has been more business doing in Tallow, and prices are improving-Skin tallow, at Liverpool, has brought 59s. Hemp and Flar are still without variation ; but there have been more inquiries of late after the latter. In Brandy there has been little business doing; the new parcels expected shortly at market

, and it is supposed the opening price will be 3s. 2d. and 3s. 31. Geneva is without inquiry. London, January 11.

British Manufactures. It gives us pleasure to observe that the accounts from Liver. pool, Manchester, Glasgow, and several manufacturing towns in Yorkshire, state that an improvement in trade has recently taken place, and that the orders for goods for the spring trade are considerable. More webs were sent to the country from Glasgow, last Feek, than in any week for many months before ; and in Lancashire and Yorkshire, the improvement has been such, that many of the manufacturers have advanced the wages of weavers 6d. per cent. on all descriptions of cloth.-January 19.
