COMMERCIAL REPORT.-March 13, 1820.
Sugar. There has been some fluctuation in the prices, and demand for this article. At the date of our last report, the market wore a favourable aspect. It afterwards became languid, and prices depressed. Within these few days the demand has, for Muscovadoes, become more animated, and the prices more steady. From the last advices from the Continent, the Refined market is become more languid.Molasses are steady, and in fair request. As we anticipated, the accounts from the islands are by no means favourable. The crops must both be short and unusually late. From this circumstance we may fairly calculate upon the Sugar market remaining steady, and if business in general revives, that the demand and prices will increase.- Cotton. The market for Cotton continues languid and depressed. The importations have of late been considerable, and the quantity of East India Cotton on hand is so great, that it must, for a long time to come, keep the market in a languid state. The quantity expected from America is very considerable. The demand for internal consumpt also cannot be increased.-Coffee. This article continues to fluctuate greatly : every thing concerning it depends upon the advices from the Continent, which must fluctuate greatly, according as the supplies arrive from different parts of the world. These are lately become very great, and a large portion of the Coffee trade is now wrested from our hands. The consumpt on the Continent of Europe continues to increase.
In all the other articles of Commerce it is scarcely possible for us to make a single remark. Every thing continues in the former languid state, nor is there the smallest appearance of any immediate revival, at least to any considerable extent. In the manufacturing districts more work has lately been doing, but at no advance for the price of labour. The accounts from foreign markets continue dull and unsatisfactory, without any cheering rays to dispel the glooin. We stated our opinion on these matters at such length in our last report, that it is unnecessary for us again to enter upon the subject. Every thing since has but tended to confirm what we there said. Some time must yet pass before we see any material revival of trade.
