MONTHLY COMMERCIAL REPORT.
THE feet from India lately arrived consists of the following fhips :--the Duke

of Montrose, Walpole, Sarah Chriftiana, and Northampton, from Bengal; the Worcester, from Fort St. George and Bombay ; 'Sir W. Pulteney, and Union, from Bombay. Their cargoes confift of 9,266 pieces Bengal piece goods, 9,123 pieces calicoes, 68,400 Madras calicoes, exclusive of a large quantity of prohibited goods, drugs, and privileged goods, anong which are 2,052 bales of cotton.

A feet from the Leeward INands is also arrived, and we are happy to say to a good market, as Rum, Sugar, and Coffee are in demand, and fetch good prices. The East India Company have declared for their March Sale, '13,800 chests of Indigo, aud of Picce Goods 34,000; Calicoes, 124,826; Prohibited, 83,704 ; Prompts, Jaly 21st.

Sweden having been obliged to Aut ber ports against us, at the instance of the Emperor of Ruflia, we may say the trade of the Baltic to this country is at present at an end; con. fequently the articles of Timber, Tallow, Tar, Pitch, Iron, Hemp, Flax, &c. must confiderably advance in price; and we trust the legislature will at this time give every encourageme to the Iron Manufacture, growers of Hemp; Flax, &c. as those valuable articles can be procured in our country in abundance, and equal to any foreign article imported.

The trade of Archangel, compared with that of other Russian ports, has been very conliderable this year; in consequence of which the prices of several articles were pushed up to an unexpećted height, such as of Flax, from 85 to 90 roubles-Tallow, 80 to 85 ditto

Hemp, 75 to 80 ditto-Bristles, 40 ditto-Mals, 170 dittuLinseed, 14 to 15 dittom Rye, 10 to 10dicto, and Wheat, to 9 roubles. Owing to the want of tonnage, so few

Mips being arrived to carry off the goods brought to market, the stock remaining on hand is very confiderable, and consists of 30,000 poods of yellow Candle Tallow, lent to Irche angel from Petersburgh; 500,000 poods of Bar Iron ; 30,000 poods of 'Train Oil; 13,000, chetverts of Rye; 60,000 ditto of Wheat; 500,000 Mats; 3,000 poods of Candles ; 80,000 barrels of Tar; 3,000 poods of Pease; 15,000 poods of Rye Flour ; 10,000 barsels of Pitch ; 12,000 cherverts of Linseed; 5,000 punds of Hemp, and 2,000 poods of Flax. Some contracts have been made for the present year at advanced prices

The markets of London and Liverpool continue full of Cotton-wool, and fetch good prices, particularly those of the Brazils, as Marinham and Pernambucco ; and the Cottoa of our own West India illands keeps steady in price, and is of remarkably fine quality. Every hand, both male and female, is bufily employed at Manchester, and its neighbourhood, in the manufacturing of Caliçoes and Cottons, &c. for South American orders; and the towns of Birmingham and Sheffield are executing large orders for the same country.

Irish Linens have confiderably advanced in price, and fill likely to be higher, in confequence of the scarcity of Flax-seed from America laft season. Should the embargo continue in America, we trust and hope the legiNature will grant premiums to the growers of Flax in Ireland, so as to encourage the farmers, as well as the poor industrious weavers of this necessary article.

NATURALIST'S MONTHLY REPORT.

DECEMBEP..
Dead Winter Montb.

The Inows arise, and foul and fierce

All winter drives along the darkened air.
FOR several days after the commencement of December, the weather was unnfually mild

and pleasant for this reason of the year. The nights have generally been frosty, but it was not until the 22d that we had any snow whatever. On the 9th, i0th, and 11th, the fun thone su powerfully, that, about mid-day, the imall insects were flying about in little swarms, in the same manner as in summer. Even two or three of the butterflies were routed from their state of torpor, and were seen to flit along the air . In the night of the 17th we had a hard black fruit, which continued till the 21st. It entirely destroyed the few autunnal flowers, which the mildness of the preceding weather had left. A confiderable quantity of snow fell on the 22d. The frott' continued till the 27th. During all this severe wea. ther, the wind has varied no forther than from north to north-east and east. It is fingular that, although the wind was nearly stationary, about east, till the end of the month, a thaw commenced in the evening of the 27th, which lasted, without intermisiion, till the 4th of January. The east is a quarter from whence, in the winter months, we nearly always lave froft, and rarely indeed any thing like open weatlier.
