value is in the price of Compta, which has advanced 2 to 3f rupees per candy. The other descriptions remain as before, and the market. for all is firm. There are reports of a serious deficiency in the crops in Guzerat.

COFFEE.-Mocha has slightly advanced in price, and may nos bé quoted at 91 to 9; rupees per maand. The price of Malabar is stationary.

ELEPHANTS' TEETH.-Large and middling sized teeth have in. proved in value, the former having attained the rate of 95 rupees, and the latter 75 to 85, per maund.

CARDAMOMs have still further advanced, the price of short being now 51 to 52 rupees per paund.

Wool. This has been arriving freely, and purchases have been readily made at our quotations. The diminution in the value of the Khorassan and Mekran varieties arises from the careless, way in which they are got up, and from their being much adulterated. The wool of Cutch and Marwar, on the other hand, is greatly improved, and consequently fetches a better price.

OPIUM is without change, the price asked last month, Rs. 1,430 per chest, being still current.

IMPORTS. The interruption to business oceasioned by the occurrence of the Dewallee holidays, which mark the close of the native commercial year, and which occupy several days in their celebration, has ren. dered the transactions in British imports, since the departure of the last mail, very limited in extent, and unimportant in character. This festival terminates to-day, and business may be expected to be Tejewed with some degree of animation, but it is feared that the effects arising from the defective nature of the monsoon will prevent any very decided or prolonged improvement.

Metals.-The only material change in the market for metals is a falling off in the prices of the leading varieties of Copper.-This may be attributed to some forced sales made by parties in the absence of a legitimate inquiry.

COTTON MANUFACTURES. -The fabrics in which transactions have taken place since our last 'have chiefly consisted of 45-inch grey shirtings, grey madapollams, and domestics, which goods have been disposed of to a moderate extent at prices similar to those cur. rent in the early part of last month." A few grey and bleached jacconets and jamdanny lappets and bleached shirting's have likewise gone off, but there has been no active inquiry for those fabrics. Coloured and printed goods have been generally neglected, and the transactions in them have been few and unremunerating.

YARNS.—The prices of these are wholly unaltered, and the only sale of which we have heard is one of No. 40, Mule, at our quota. tion,

WOOLLENS.-The market for woollen cloths continues very pro. mising, the demand being dull, while stocks are large. We have been apprised of no transactions.

MARINE STORES.There is no change to notice in the prices of articles under this head, if we except that of pitch, which may now be quoted at 4 rs. t044 per barrel, instead of 5 rs. as was the case at. the date of our last.

Beer continues extremely dull, and in the absence of demand, no sales are reported. The prices of all brands are purely nominal, and the stocks in first hands as well as bottlers', are believed to be heavy.

SPIRITS.-But little inquiry exists for any variety of spirits, and as this has hitherto been a season of great activity, it is supposed that the imposition of the additional duty has operated as a check uoi consumption. The stocks are heavy, and increasing, while prices have a downward tendency.

RED LEAD.-There has been a sale of 100 cwt. at 13 rupees per cwt, a price slightly in advance of that formerly quoted, and at the rate thus paid the market remains firm.

COCHINE AJ :- This article is a trifle higher in nominal value, but we hear of no actual transactions.

SAFFRON.-There is no change to notice either in price or demand.

BOTTLES remain without alteration.
