Saturday last, inclusive.
The Scotch Markets are the Returns of the Week before.
* Dalkeith and Haddington are given by the boll.-The Scotch boll for Wheat, Rye, Pease, and Beans, 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, June 30.-The severe drought now so long experienced has again continued since Tuesday last, and during the past week sales only to a limited amount were effected for each kind of Grain, Flour, &c. at prices which barely maintained the late quotations, and in several instances a decline on Foreign and Irish Wheats, of 2d. to 3d. per 70lbs., was submitted to. This day's market was indifferently attended, when a few sales only of Irish and middling qualities of Foreign Wheats were made, at the decline above noted. For Oats and Oatmeal the demand this day improved. In other articles of the trade there was little or no alteration.
Imported into Liverpool from the 13th to the 19th June, 1826, inclusive:- Wheat, 7,350; Barley, $53; Oats, 11,679; Rye, 6; Malt, 1,187; Beans, 540; and Pease, 37 qrs. Flour, 2,187 sacks, per 280 lbs. Oatmeal, 1,533 packs, per 240 lbs.
Guildford, June 24 -Our Wheat market was from 10s. to 20s. per load cheaper on the average, but in other articles there was scarce any alteration. Wheat, new, for mealing, 13. to 17/. 10s. per load. Barley, SOs. to 35s.; Oats, 24s. to 34s.; Beans, 46s. to 50s.; and Pease, grey, 46s. to 48s. per quarter.
Norwich, June 24.-We had an excellent supply of Wheat to-day, and many sellers submitted to a small reduction in prices. The best Red sold from 48s, to 54s.; White to 57s.; Barley, from 22s. to 26s., but little done in them. Oats, 22s. to 27s. Beans, 36s. to 39s. Pease, 38s. to 40s. per quarter; and Flour, from 42s. to 43s. per sack.
Ipswich, June 24.-Our market to-day was pretty well supplied with Wheat for the time of the year, but we had scarcely any thing else. The sale was dull at last week's prices, as follow: Wheat, 52s. to 60s.; Barley, 28s. to 30s.; and Beans, $8s. to 40s. per quarter.
Wakefield, June 23.-The supply of Wheat this morning is rather large, some quantity of which is of the realized Foreign, for which there is little or no demand, except at very low prices, and it will chiefly go to granary; fine fresh samples of English fully support the rates of last week, and the supply pretty well cleared off. Oats are in good supply, and the best English are rather dearer; such Foreign as are of good colour and condition are in demand, but the middling qualities are dull. Shelling is ready sale at last Friday's prices. Fine fresh Barley is inquired after, for holding over, and there is more demand for Grinding at better prices. Beans are ready sale, and Ss. per quarter dearer. Good Malt is in request.-Wheat, Red, 47x. to 61s.; White, 50s. to 61s. per 60 lbs.; Barley, 27s. to 30s.; fine, 325. per quarter; Beans, small, 44s. to 48s.; tick, 42s. to 45s. per 63 lbs.; Gats, Mealing, new, 121d. to 13 d. per stone; Shelling, new, 31s. to 3Ss.; and Malt, 32s. to 40s per load. Flour, fine, 478. to 49s. per sack of 280 lbs. Rapeseed, 14 to 191. per last.
Manchester, June 24.-During the week we have had more inquiry for all kinds of Grain and fresh Flour at rather higher prices. At this day's market, which was well attended, there was a good show of samples, and a fair business has been transacted. Fine fresh Wheats are much sought after, and command an advance of 3d. per bushel; while inferior and foreign are quite neglected. Spring Corn improves both in demand and value, particularly Oats, which met a free sale at full id. per 45lbs. more than could have been obtained on this day se'nnight. Beans are scarce, and 2s. to Ss. per quarter higher. Malt is also 2. a load, and Flour 1s. per sack dearer. Wheat, English, 60s. Od. to 70s. 4d.; Irish, 54s. 1 d. to 65s. 2d.; Foreign, 57s. 2d. to 63s. 5d.; Barley, 26x. 8d. to 23s. 4d. ; Oats, Irish, 25s. 8d. to 20s. 8d.; Pease, 44s. to 50s. per quarter, Winchester.

This little book I shall send you in about twelve days from this time, and shall cause one copy of it to be delivered, gratis, at the house of every working man in Preston. In the meanwhile, it is my duty to write to you upon other subjects. One of which, of great interest to you at this time, is the South American Bubble.

You will please to bear in mind, that about four years ago, the Government, the merchants, and especially the cotton-manufacturers, became mad for proclaiming the independence of South America; became mad for the immense trade which they said they should have with that country; became crazy for giving liberty to the South Americans, while they kept up something pretty nearly approaching to downright slavery at home; and you will please to bear in mind, that the big Cotton Lords of Man

I always said that the project would end in dreadful ruin to Englishmen; and, before I close this letter, I will show you in what manner it adds to your present distresses.
In the meanwhile, those amiable creatures called loan-jobbers, who had set to work the several Governments, as they were called, in this South America, wanted loans of money just to begin their operations with.
