MONTILY COMMERCIAL REPORT. AV event, most important to the commercial interests of thi-country, bastaken place within

the last month. We allude to the repeal of the orders in council, relative to our intercourse withi Anerica, which is now as free as ever it was, prior to our dilagreement with our trantatlantic brethren. This measure, which is highly creditable to the political talents of our rulers, has already given new life io our manufactures of every description; at the same time, that it has deitroyed the ungenerous expectations of the monopolizers of American produce. We can now mock the attempis of the French Emperor, to dry up the sources of our trade ; and smile at his endeavours to procure for his people a participation in a traffic which they have no means of carrying on. By a late decree, Buonaparte clearly evinces his opinion upou this fubject; for notwithstanding his principal ports being in a ftate of blockade, he thinks to amule and pacify the French nation, by permitting the exportation of all articles, the produce of the foil and induttry of France, and also the importation of various articles, such as iron, tin, dye ftuffs, &c. The embargo has been taken off Turkith vessels by our government, and thus, an advantageous channel is opened to our manufactures, especially the clothing and hardware branches. The Chancellor of the Exchequer bas fignified, that it is the intention of government to permit the importation of Martinique produce on one condition only-that of its being re-exported. This declaration must, doubtless, prove highly Latisfactory to our West India nterchants, who have abundance of colonial produce on hands, without being able to find a maket for the greater par: of it.

MONTHLY BOTANICAL REPORT. IN No. 115, of the Botanist's Repository, we find Ferulapersica ; the plant supposed to pro

duce the Atla-fætida ; and indeed, as it was produced from seeds sent to Peterburgh, from the spot whence this drug is known to come, there can be little doubt, when the very Atrong smell of Affa-fatida; which pervades every part of the herb,is-taken into the accouni, but that it is the real plant. From Petersburgh, it was communicated to Dr. Hope, the late profeffur of Botany, at Edinburgh, where ripe seeds were produced, and the young plants have been diftributed to many other botanic gardęus; yet it is ftill very far from being common.

Kæmpfers, in his Amænitates Exoticæ, has given a very full account of the plant which produces the Alla-foetida, and the mude of collecting it, accompanied with a figure, which fo ill accords with Dr. Hope's plant, that it has been hence concluded, that the two species must be different. Yet this author, when in Perfia, took very great pams to enquire is there were more than one ; and althongh the natives themselves believed there were two, get upon a careful comparison of them both, he was convinced that there was only onc species. But he remarks, that the leaves of different individuals were fo very unlike one ant ther, that when alone examined, no one would liesitate to pronounce them not to belong to the fame species. The umbels, however, in his figure, are fully as unlike to our plent, as the leaves; we must therefore conclude, that our author has done right in separating the Ferula perfica, from the Alfa-fatid, of Kæmpfer; but he would liave done better, had be acknowledged that, in so doing, he was following his predecessors, and that the plants were confidered as distinct in Willdenow's edition of the species Plantarum of Linnæus. An onimportant variety of Camellia japonica, in which, part of the filaments are become petal-like. Vetea acutifirra, a new species of Verea, with white sharp-pointed petals from the collection of the late Right Honourable Charles Greville, at Paddington, whose death is a public Jors to the science of Natural History Heranthemum fragrans, a new species, from the Cape of Good Hope, chiefly valuable on account of its flowers being fragrant; whiclı, as is here observed, is a very unusual circunstance in plants of this genus. Wher is here lup. posed to be a new fpecies of Cynanchum, aud pamed biccler, but which appears to us to be a iurre variety of cxt61. sum of Jacquin, and Hortus Kewinfis.

In Number 116 of the same work, we bave Mimosa Elegans, suppored to be a new fpecies, a native of New South Wales, growing ten feet high, in the coulervatory of Mr.

A. B

A. B. Lambert, a zealous botanist, and the professor of one of the first Herbariums in this country, which he makes fubservient to science, by generously affording a ready access to all inquiring botaniits. The name of-elegant is not very appropriate, as all the pinnaledleaved species are equally, and funie of them much more elegant, if we way judge from the tigure; the plant itself we bave not seen.

Mr. Andrew's received it iron Mc Dona, of Cambridge, hy whose skill and affiduity, the botanic garden of ihat Univerlity, has risen to be one of the first importance in Europe. It is much to be lamented, that the managers of this garden camiot, or do not, turnin more ample funds for the maintenance and increale of this collection; having been fortunate erongli to get a curator, who putients so much ardona in his calling, they may be very sure that the funds would be well applied, as long as the garden was under his direction; but if ampie funds were made permanent, a l'ucceffor would probably find means of applying them to fur other purpoles than the pronotion of feieoce. Callicona serrarifeha, a dowering thrub fruin New South Wales, which may perhaps be a species of the Codia of Foriter, notwithstanding the latter delerines his genus as being uctandrous, and having tour petals, whilst this has many ftamens and no petals: there circui. Itances do not in all cases divide a genus; but having seen a specimen ot Forster's Codra, we - are unable to decide. Ceratonia siliqua, a male plant, and a great curiosity, having never

The lat Lumber of the Botanical Magazine, containing Tradescantia discolor, with a specific character, by Mr. Gawler, of thirty lines!!! Yet two words are perhaps futiceni ep distinguish it from every other species of this genus. Wationia rusca alba, B. Watchnia Meriana (7.) Watsonia bumilis B. All three varieties of three-species before publthed in the Magazine ; but much moie beautiful than their prototypes. Arnica bellod aftrum: Linné referred this plan: o lais genus Duronicum ; Haller, and Scopoli, to Aiter ; Villars, and Willdenow, to Arniea. In the artificial fyftem, its characters unite it with the latter; tut in natural affinity, Dr. Sims leems to think it approaches auch bearer to Bellis, with whicta genus all the older botanists united it, and be doabts if the mere circumstance of the seeds being crowned with a pappus, be sufficient to lep:rate it from a genus, with which, in every other respect, it perfecily accords.

Gly. cine a pios; here again the author lliows his forivearance in making alterations, by retaining this plant in the genus Glycine : to us it appears, thet Morrion, with more propriely, added it to Astragalus, but it is probably a genus diftinct from either. Epacris pungens: Ur. Sious has taken an opportunity of acknowledging, that lois former fpacris, pungens, was erroneoudly so called, being a distinct species from the plant de cribed, and figured, by Carapilles This variety is a beautiful thrub. Dr. Sims observes, that in this species it is very evident, that the filaments are not really inserted into the corolia, bost merely adhere to it in tightly, ihat the coralla may be pulled off

, without removing the filaments, fome of which will remain attached to the receptacle below the gernen. In lume other species, though the fiaments are more firmly attached to the corolla, thes may nevertheleis be traced down to the receptacle. This circumstance, as the Doctor has obleived, ftrengthens the athinity to tween Epacris and Erica.

During the last fourteen days of the month, there has been more or less rain every day. We have this year entirely, or almost entirely, escaped the equinoxial gales.

It was on the 22d of March that I firit heard the death watches, (Plinus seffellatus) begin to beat. This they continued till the cold weather fet in, when they again became filent, till nearly the end of April.
