Liverpool, July 4-The arrivals of Grain during the week form but a moderate supply, and the sales of Wheat since Tuesday last were to a limited extent, in consequence of the forward state of the crops of this Grain, so that late prices were with difficulty maintained. Barley and Beans supported their late value. At this day's market good fresh Wheats were taken off more freely than for some time past, and Flour was in fair demand at previous rates. The injury sustained by the long drought has created much interest, and caused a general inquiry for all descriptions of Spring Corn, in which business was done to a fair amount, at an advance of 2s. to Ss. per quarter on Barley, Malt, Beans and Pease; and Oats were 14. to 1d. per 45 lbs, dearer than upon this day se'nnight. The transactions in bonded Grain were very trivial.

Imported into Liverpool from the 27th June, to 3d July, 1826, inclusive:- Wheat, 9,167; Oats, 9,164; Malt, 2,220; Beans, 542; and Pease, 245 quarters. Flour, 780 sacks, per 280 lbs. Oatmeal, 964 packs, per 240 lbs.

Guildford, July 8-Wheat, new, for mealing, 12l. to 17. 10s. per load. Barley, 50s. to 35s.; Oats, 24s. to 34s.; Beans, 46s. to 50s.; and Pease, grey, 43s. to 52s. per quarter.

Norwich, July 8-We had a large supply of good Wheat to this day's market, and but little variation from the prices of last week. Red sold from 48s. to 548.; White to 578.; Barley was higher, the best sold as high as 32s. Oats, 23s. to 27s. Beans, 37s. to 40s. Pease, 38s. to 42s. per quarter; and Flour, 43s. per sack.

Ipswich, July 8.-We had to-day a short supply of all Corn. Wheat was much the same in price as last week; but Beans were 4s. per quarter dearer. Prices as follow:-Wheat, 52s. to 60s.; Barley, none; and Beans, 42s. to 44s. per quarter.

Wakefield, July 7.-We have again a large supply of Wheat; the very finest qualities are ready sale, at an advance of 1s. per quarter. Foreign, and inferior sorts of English are very dull to-day, and hut little progress can be made in sales. There is a good supply of Oats, chiefly Foreign; fine English are a d. per stone dearer, and the Foreign sell at better prices, up to 14d. per stone. Shelling is scarce, and 2s. per load higher. The supply of Beans is better than for some weeks back; they meet ready sale at an advance of 2s. per quarter. Rapeseed is a very flat article; the duty upon Foreign is now reduced to 10s. per last; the quantity at Hull in bond is large, from 500 to 600 lasts, and the growing crop abroad is well spoken of. With the exception of a heavy shower on Saturday, the weather continues very hot and dry, and the Spring crops, with Potatoes, are suffering severely.-Wheat, Red, 47s. to 62s.; White, 50s. to 66s. per 60 lbs.; Barley, 30s. to 3Ss.; fine, 35s. per quarter; Beans, small, 49s. to 52s.; tick, 46s. to 49s. per 53 lbs.; Oats, Mealing, 14d. to 15d. per stone; Shelling, 34s. to 36s.; and Malt, 34s. to 47s. per load. Flour, fine, 50s. to 528. per sack of 280 lbs. Rapeseed, 14 to 197. per last.

Manchester, July 8.-With the exception of a few articles, we cannot note any material alteration in the trade since our last, either in demand or prices. There was a very indifferent attendance, and poor show of samples at this day's market, which ruled extremely dull, and at the close very little business had been effected.-Wheat, English, 60s, to 70s. 4d.; Irish, 54s. 11d. to 65s. 2d.; Foreign, 57s. 2d. to 638. 5d.; Barley, 30s. to 36s.; Oats, Irish, 25s. 8d. to 29s.; Pease, 44s. to 56s, per quarter, Winchester; Beans, English, 50s. to 55s.; Irish, 48s. to 50s. per quarter, 63 lbs. per bushel; Malt, 34s. to 48s. per load, of six imperial bushels.


Norwich Castle Meadow, July 8.-Our supply of fat Cattle to this day's market was small, and the demand being the same, prices are nearly the same as for some weeks previous, 7s. to 7s. 6d. per stone of 14lbs. sinking offal; the supply of Store Stock was very large, and the sales exceedingly flat; a few Scots sold at 4s. to 4s. 3d. per stone when fat; Short Horns, Ss. to Ss. 6d.

At Morpeth Market, on the 5th instant, there was a very great supply of Cattle, Sheep, and Lambs; fat of the latter sold readily; the former met with a very dull sale, and prices were lower.-Beef, from 5s. 6d. tp 68.; Mutton, 6s. to 7s. and Lamb, 7s. to 7s. 6d. per stone, sinking offal.

MR.

Now for these extracts, for which you will wish me at the devil, I dare say, and the insertion of which, you might have escaped, perhaps, had it not been for the abominable insolence of your speech in 1823, against the Reformers.
