* 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, Aug. 15.-During the past week Wheats, both new and old were sparingly purchased, at the prices last quoted. Oats and Barley, which are scarce, were sold at a small advance. Flour and Oatmeal improved in value, 1s. per 280 lbs. on the former, and 2s. to Ss. per 240 lbs. on the latter. At this day's market, although a decline of about 3d. per 70 lbs. was submitted to, sales were very limited for new British and Irish Wheats, and Foreign scarcely sustained late prices. Oats and Barley were in good demand, at an advance of about 2d. per bushel, and fine sweet Oatmeal was very brisk sale, at the annexed quotations. Beans and Pease were each somewhat dearer.

Manchester, Aug. 19.-We have had a fair demand during the week for most articles in the trade, and in a few instances higher prices have been obtained. This day's, market was moderately attended, but the show of samples was extremely limited; and those of Spring Corn quite inadequate to the demand. Wheat sold rather better, at a trifling improvement.Oats still continue extremely scarce, and were much inquired for, at an advance of 4d. to 5d. per bushel.-Beans are in request, at a further advance of 1s. per qr.-Barley commands 3d. per bushel more than last week's rates, and very little offering.-Malt and Flour is the turn lower.Oatmeal is full 1s. per load dearer, and moves off readily.

Manchester, Aug. 16.-We had a tolerable supply of Cattle to this day's market, which were sold much about the same as last week. The show of Sheep and Lambs being rather plentiful went off slowly, and barely support our currency. Pigs were scarce, and in general realized a trifling advance.-Beef, 44d. to 53d.; Mutton, 44d. to 54d.; Lamb, 34d. to 44d.; Veal, 5d. to 64d.; and Pork, 4d. to 5d. per pound, sinking offal.

LETTER I.

[ocr errors]

"That it is well known to your Honourable House, that, for more than " twenty years, the particular families received a large part of the above, mentioned emoluments out of the money borrowed from the fundholders; that, during that period, more than a million of money was taken out of "the loans to be given to the Church; and that, in fact, no inconsiderable "part of the whole of the loans went into the pockets of these families; " and, therefore, your Petitioners will not suppose it possible for your "Honourable House to harbour an intention to take even a single shilling << from the Fundholders, so long as these families shall continue to receive those emoluments."-NORFOLK PETITION, 3d January, 1823.
