COMMERCIAL REPORT.-February 12, 1820.
Sugar. Since our last, the demand for Sugar has increased, and the prices have ace cordingly advanced. The sales at the different outports have been very considerable, and the deliveries from the warehouses in London have of late been extensive. The prices of Low Browns are, however, still very low, and at least 10s. per cwt. below the price at which the planter can afford to sell them. The finer qualities are more in demand. The price of Sugar, since it was at the lowest pitch, may be stated to have advanced 78. of 8s. per cwt.'; and as affairs in the commercial world become more settled and
cheerful, a farther advance must take place. The stock in the hands of the dealers must necessarily be small, and no supplies of any consequence can arrive before the months of May or June next. The crops in all the Windward and Leeward Islands must be very late ; and also, from different causes, must be below an average crop. In Jamaica, things wear a favourable aspect for the planter ; but, on the whole, we antičipate a falling off in the importation of Sugar for this year, while we may fairly calculate upon an increased internal consumpt. The prices must, therefore, advance. The increased cultivation in Demerara and Berbice, will not make up for the deficiency that must arise in the crops of other islands, while the importations from the East Indies are by no means likely to increase.-Coffee. The market for this article continues to fluctuate, according to the advices from the Continent. Upon the whole, it may be stated as rather dull, and the prices a trifle lower. The stock in this country is very much ree duced, but the demand for exportation has of late been much reduced also. The consumption, however, seems evidently to increase ; but the cultivation of this article, in various parts of the world, is greatly extended, yet, it would not appear to be equal to the demand, while the late languor in the market may be attributed to the effects of the general stagnation of business in every part of the commercial world.-Cotton. The market for Cotton, after a little revival, is again become dull, and prices may be stated a shade lower. There have of late been very considerable arrivals from the United States, and more are daily expected. We cannot at present see from what quarter any considerable impulse is to come to advance the Cotton market, nor are we of opinion, that it can in future suffer much depreciation. Events, beyond the common course, must take place to do either, and there is at present no reason to calculate on these, at least to any extent. The quantity of East India Cotton still in the market is very considerable ; and as we proceed in our observations, it will be seen that this kind is not likely to be increased. Corn. The market for grain of all descriptions, seems to have become more lively, but for what reason we are at a loss to conceive, unless it be that capitalists consider all kinds of it as below their proper level. They certainly are below what the farmer can afford to raise them at-Rum has been more in demand. Since our last, considerable sales have been effected, but we cannot state at any material advance, while the market appears to be about to sink back to its former languid state. This article has, however, certainly seen the lowest value in the scale.-Geneva is very low in price, and the market languid.-In Brandy there is little doing, but this article has also seen its lowest, and we confidently anticipate an advance in price. The shippers from France are wearied in endeavouring to beat each other out of the market, which they have found a very unprofitable trade.-The Wine market is very dull, and inferior Wines are offered at reduced prices. There is, however, no prospect of any material reduction in the prices of fine old Port Wines, while, if disturbances extend and become general in Spain, it may have the effect of advancing the price of Sherries. The market for Indigo has become more lively, and it is probable, may continue so.---Tobacco also, we should conceive, is an article likely to advance in price. Since our last, as we anticipated, things have in general, in the commercial world, wore a more cheerful aspect than they have long done. Markets for most articles are become more firm, while sales in many can be effected; but we must add, without any considerable improvement in value. This steadiness also, we believe, is more the effect of restored confidence, and a conviction in the minds of the commercial capitalists, that all articles of commerce have seen their lowest point, and are at present below their proper value, than from any actual demand. We cannot at present see any opening of importance in foreign countries, nor do we anticipate any for some time to come. In the course of our further observations, the reasons will be given for this opinion; and till the foreign demand become extensive, we cannot expect the former briskness in our internal trade. Nevertheless, we firmly anticipate, from this time forward, a gradual and progressive amendment in all our commercial affairs, but we have yet some disastrous details to receive from distant foreign markets, where the scatterings of the mighty wreck are not yet all ascertained or collected.
At the commencement of another year, some observations and reflections, upon the commercial matters of the last, become necessary. We observe, that the importation of Sugar for last year has increased. This increase, however, consists chiefly of East India Sugar. The total increase appears to be about 38,000 cases and bags. The imports from our West India colonies are very nearly equal, and amount to 280,000 casks. The consumpt is, however, materially decreased, and the export also considerably reduced, thus leaving the stock on hand greatly augmented. By turning to our Number for January last year, and comparing it with the Tables given in the present Number, our readers will see what the difference is. The Continent of Europe now receives supo plies from the Colonies belonging to the different States, and from India and the Brazils, and Cuba, where the cultivation is rapidly on the increase. The importation of Sugar at Amsterdam, in 1319, was=15,275 hhds. West India.
1,196 hhds. Brazil.
