MONTIILY COMMERCIAL REPORT. IT is with great pleasure we announce the arrival of a valuable Eat India feet, confiting of

Sixteen sail, together with eleven whalers, under convoy of the Samplon tuan of war. They left St. Helena the 1st of February; our next will probably give some particulars of their cargoes, &c. &c. We regret to find that the Adamunt's convoy out lo India, has arrived at a very bad market, being overstocked with all kinds of European merchandize, consequently the souls sent out by this Aleet must leave a considerable lors to the proprietors.

The safe arrival of the homeward-bound Jamaica fleet just now has brought a large quan. tity of sugars into our market, notithstanding which the article has told at is. percwt, higher than last month, and the public sales have been very conliderable, as between the 17th und 28th the following goods were sold, viz.

The average price of fugars (in the London Gazette) ending the 15th inst, was :36. 41. per cwt. exclusive of the duty of Customis paid or payable thereon, on the importation thereof iso Great Britain.

This article has lowered in price ocurly.. per cwt. fince our laft, no doubt owing to the want of an exportation to the northera ports of Europe, those being the principal markets for botlı our lugars and coffee.

The American government having refused to ratify the treaty lately made wit's this otatry, has already caused a rise of full 10s, per cwt. in the articles of American pearl and put athes, and most likely will have the same effect on all the produce of that country; we luwe ever hope the existing differences will be foon settled to our mutual fatia a&tion.

The African slave trade being happily at an end, the merchants in London and at Liverpool are ufing their utmost exertions to disputeh veltels out to the coast for their last cargoes thence, wh ch they expect will attard them conlideralle profit in the West India market.

The demand for Irish linens (in the Linen Hall at Dublin) for the Spanish market (via Lifben) has got the prices of the finer fire up considerably, and is likely to be productive of great benefit to that numerous body of weavers in the North and South-west of that kingdom; the coarer forts retain their prices for the West India market, and to this may be attributed the fall on the Exchange between the two countries.

NATURALIST'S MONTHLY REPORT.
Love's pleasing ferment gently now begins

To warm the flowing blood.
We have as yet had no winter this year, unless occasionally a few cold days, interrupting

an extraordinary fucceflion of warm weather, may be considered as deserving that appellation. The 16th, 17th, and 18th, of April were cold, with trong easterly winds, and flight thowers of Icet and snow.

March 20. The apricot, Sil erian crab, and almond-erces are all in flower; as are likewise the bolowrocied jumitory, (tumaria cava) vernal wbitlow grafs, (draba verna) and to isfect: The first leaves or the gasberry-tree, the common lilac, and the weeping willow, also are out

March 23. The íplathes of water by the fides ol the roads, in which I had found the cancer fiugnalis (mentioned in the last month's Report), art, to my great attonithment, all dried up in consequence of the unusual drought of the leafon.

Wat lisards (lacerta aquatica of Linnæus ?) begin to crawl forth from their winter retreats and to appear at the bottom of the ponds. It is fingular cnough that I have never seen either the lacerta pulvfiris, or any kind of frog in this part of the country. Toads, however as in most other purts are fufficiently common throughout the whole of the spring and summer. I have seinaked that the water lizards do not now rise to the surface to breathe by any means fo frequently as they do in het weather.

March 25. The wiper, or adder, the common make, and the fecife lizard (lacerts agilis) were lligen abroad on this day.
