Barley meets a dull trade, at the terms last quoted. The speculative demand for Beans having ceased, this article has rather declined in value. Pease, of both sorts, may be 167 quoted higher. The demand con2,287 tinues tolerably free for good sweet Oats, but not at better prices; and all samples that are unsweet meet a very heavy trade. The Flour trade is unaltered.

Monday, July 17.-There was again last week a moderate arrival of all descriptions of Corn, and this morning's supply has afforded little addition to the quantities, except of Beans, many samples of which have made their appearance. In consequence of so few samples of fine Wheat, the same are called 1s. to 2s. per quarter dearer; but in all other kinds the extent of business doing is limited, and prices remain unaltered.

mand for fine samples of Wheat is good, and such rather exceed Monday's terms; in other qualities little doing. Barley, Beans, Pease, and Oats, remain as quoted on Monday.

*Dalkeith and Haddington are given by the boll.-The Scotch boll for Wheat, Rye, Pease, and Beans, is three per cent. more than 4 bushels. The boll of Barley and Oats, is about 6 bushels Winchester, or as 6 to 8 compared with the English quarter.

Liverpool, July 11.-Some partial showers of rain were experienced in this district during the past week, but of so trivial a magnitude as scarcely to alter the aspect of the coming crops. Flour was a little higher, and the demand being good for Oats, 1d. per 45 lbs. was obtained thereon. The market of this day being well attended, sales of Wheat and Oats were made to a fair extent, the former at about last advised prices, and the latter at an advance of d. per 45 lbs. on those of last Tuesday. Prices of other articles remain much the same as on this day se'nnight.

Imported into Liverpool from the 4th to 10th July, 1826, inclusive:Wheat, 2,695; Barley, 23; and Oats, 9,572 quarters. Flour, 130 sacks, per 280 lbs. Oatmeal, 1,320 packs, per 240 lbs. Flour, Europe, 750 barrels.

Guildford, July 15.-Wheat, new, for mealing, 137. to 17. 10s. per load. Barley, SOS. to 36s.; Oats, 29s. to 35s.; Beans, 52s. to 56s.; and Pease, grey, 50s. to 56s. per quarter.

Norwich, July 15.-The supply of Wheat to this day's market was liberal and quite equal to the demand. Red sold from 48s. to 55s.; White to 57s.; Barley, 32s. Oats, 23s. to 28s. Beans, 37s. to 41s. Pease, 38s. to 42s. per quarter; and Flour, 44s. to 45s. per sack.

Bristol, July 15.-An advance has taken place in the prices of several kinds of Grain here, since my last quotations. Present prices are about as follow. Supplies very moderate.-Wheat from 5s. 6d. to 7s. 9d.; Barley, 3s. 3d. to 4s. 9d.; Oats, 2s. 6d. to 3s. 8d.; Beans, 4s. to 7s.; and Malt, 5s. to 7s. 74d. per bushel, Imperial. Flour, Seconds, 35s. to 49s. per sack.

Ipswich, July 15.-We had to-day a small market: a little business was done at about last week's prices, as follows:-Wheat, 54s. to 60s.; Barley, 32s.; and Beans, 42s. to 45s. per quarter.

Wisbech, July 15.-There was a fair quantity of Wheat offering to-day, which sold at a little advance. Oats and Beans made from 1s. to 2s. per quarter more.

Wakefield, July 14.-The supply of Wheat here to-day is rather large : the very finest samples are taken off slowly at last week's prices; but all other descriptions have met heavy sale, and in some instances rather lower prices have been submitted to. English Oats are scarce and full as dear, but Foreign, except of prime fresh quality, are dull sale, without material variation in prices. Shelling is in short supply, and obtains the rates of last Friday. Beans are unaltered in value, but the demand is less brisk.

Manchester, July 15.-There has been some heavy rain in this neighbourhood in the past week, which has had the effect of producing at least a corrective influence on prices, although it is generally considered too late to afford any material improvement in the Spring crops. The attendance on 'Change to-day was small; but the show of samples more numerous than on this day se'nnight: the market closed extremely dull, and very little business has been transacted. We make no alteration in our quotations of Wheat; but to have made any progress in sales, a trifling reduction must have been submitted to, even on the finest qualities. Oats and Malt are also heavy sale, and the turn lower. Beans and Barley continue scarce, and fully support last week's rates; still the demand is not so brisk. Flour, ready for delivery, is in tolerable request.

Newcastle-on-Tyne, July 15.-We had a better supply of Wheat from the farmers this morning, and having had several parcels coastwise during the week, the millers were enabled to select the fresh-threshed Wheats, at last week's prices, and all other sorts were 2s. per quarter cheaper. Rye is at present quite unsaleable. Grinding Barley sells at the same prices as last week, but the demand is not so good. The demand for Oats is very limited, and last week's prices are barely maintained.

COUNTRY CATTLE AND MEAT MARKETS, &c.

Norwich Castle Meadow, July 15.-We had only the very small supply of two beasts fit for slaughter to this day's market, which sold at 8s. per stone of 14lbs. sinking offal; but the show of Store Stock was very large; Scots sold at 4s. to 4s. 3d. per stone when fat; Cows and Calves sell but slowly, and Homebreds, of all sorts, the same.

Horncastle, July 15.-Beef, 7s. to 7s. 6d. per stone of 14 lbs.; Mutton, 5d. to 6d.; Lamb, 6d. to 7d.; and Veal, 7d. to 8d. per lb.

London*
Essex

Kent.

Manchester, July 12.-The supply of Cattle to this day's market being rather small, occasioned higher prices to be demanded; but the butchers not feeling inclined to give more, caused very little business to be done in the early part of the day; however, previous to the close, all were sold at advanced quotations. The trade was brisk for Sheep and Lambs, at a trifling improvement in value in the former; Calves were rather lower, and Pigs as last noted.

VOL. 59. —No. 5.]' LONDON, SATURDAY, JULY 29, 1826.

[Price 6d.

"With respect to his (Mr. ADDINGTON'S) tax upon the Funds, I dis66 agree with Mr. PITT, who does not seem to think this tax necessary, " and who expresses his hopes, that Parliament will not overturn that "edifice which it has erected with so much pains. Alas! Mr. PITT well "knows, that this edifice must be his sepulchral monument, or that "there will not be a stone to tell where he lies. He, therefore, does not "look on the tax upon the Funds as necessary to the salvation of the "State; whereas, I regard the destruction of the Monarchy as certain, "unless the Funded Debt be annihilated; and this cannot, as far as I am "able to perceive, be conveniently and effectually done, except by a tax, <i a direct and unequivocal tax, upon the Funds; or, in other words, a "deduction from the interest due to individuals from the capital Stock. "I hear a terrible outcry, excited by th's opinion; but I despise this sort "of clamour and abuse. I am fully persuaded that my opinion is correct. "It is the result of long thinking upon the subject, and has now been "communicated to my readers, not from any factious or party motive; " but from a desire gradually to prepare them for an event, which, if it the Country all at once, and totally unexpected, might be "productive of infinite mischief."- Register, Vol. IV. page 9, date 16th July, 1803.

came upon

"Be the 'miseries, however, arising from this source (a reduction of "interest) what they may, they certain'y are inevitable; for, if the Debt "be not, somehow or other, annihilated, the people must be ruined and "enslaved, and then the annihilation of the Debt comes of course. "Horrid, therefore, as the sound of National Bankruptcy is to the ears of "the selfish and the foolish, it must be borne; and their only alternative "is, bankruptcy and freedom, or bankruptcy and slavery."—Register, Vol. III. page 924, date 18th June, 1803.
