For the supply of the re-wards me, and also as a mark of quisite machinery for the five vessels, a contract was entered into by Messrs. Ricardo and Mr. Galloway, of West Smithfield, and by the terms of the contract, Mr. Galloway engaged that the whole should be completed by the month of December last. How it has happened that the business should have been protracted to this period, the Deputies, and the other individuals who have taken part in the affair, will, I hope, be called upon to explain."
I HAVE not had time to this hero his dose yet. I hear that he is in France. That, however, would not prevent me from laying the lash on him. He most richly merits it; and he shall have it in the manner that best becomes the receiver as well as the layer-on.
POOR MAN'S FRIEND.
Just published, No. 11., a little work under the above title. I intend it to contain about six numbers, at twopence a Number, to be published monthly. I intend it to be the Companion of the Working Classes, giving them useful information and advice, adapted to their present difficult situation; and especially I intend it as the means of teaching them how to AVOID SUFFERING FROM HUNGER! I intend clearly to explain to them their rights and their duties. Applications from the country should be made without delay.
my admiration of their sense and their public spirit. The other Numbers will be published on the first of each succeeding month.The price, to Gentlemen taking a quantity, will be, for one hundred, twelve shillings, for five hundred, fifty-five shillings, and, for a thousand, five pounds.
I have for sale about 50 or 60 Oak-Casks. They are quite new and perfectly sweet, never having had in them any thing but dry seeds. They are made of American white oak, are clean and clear, and very stout for their bulk. They have hoops of hickory or white-oak, and each cask contains about thirty gallons, Winchester corn-measure. An English eighteen gallon cask, made of very slight stuff, costs fourteen shillings. I will sell these for eight shillings each; and to any one who takes the whole lot, for five shillings each; and, at that price, they are cheap for the making of the tops of high fences, in which capacity they would last a couple of good long life-times. For beer barrels, their present wooden hoops would, with care, last many years, but, these may be exchanged for ironhoops at a very trifling expense. Any person, wishing to purchase them, will please to apply at Kensington, where the casks are, and where they can be seen at any time.

Price of Hops, per Cwt. in the
Monday, Sept. 11.-The supply of new Hops last week has not been so large as would have been, owing to the state of the weather. On Saturday rather more doing, and at an advance of 3s. to 5s. currency.-New Sussex, 84s. to 95s.; Kent, 81s. to 112s. to 126s.
Maidstone, Sept. 7.-Our planters are all busy in picking; and as far as can be calculated, from these few days, the produce will be fully equal to what it was laid at. We had a great deal of rain this week with some wind, but it does not appear to have done any harm to the HopsDuty, called 250,000%.!

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 Beaus, is three per cent. more than 4 bushels. The boll of Barley and Oats, is about 6 bushels Winchester, or as 6 to & compared with the English quarter.
Liverpool, Sept. 5.-With reference to the late Order in Council, as appeared in the Gazette of the 1st instant, I would now observe, that the quantities of those articles, (therein contained), now in the docks and in bond, are but trivial, say about 18,000 quarters of Oats; 1,504 quarters of Beans; 676 quarters of Rye; and about 200 quarters of Pease: but this sudden change of the Corn Laws has, as might be expected, unsettled the Corn trade here for a time, and in consequence, at this day's market, a complete stagnation prevailed, and few, or no material, sales were effected, although most descriptions of Grain might have been bought at a decline from late prices.
Imported into Liverpool from the 29th Aug. to 4th Sept., 1826, inclusive: -Wheat, 21,910; Barley, 600; Oats, 8,227; Malt, 1,118; Beans, 674; and Pease, 191 quarters. Flour 224 sacks, per 280 lbs. Oatmeal, 396 packs, per 240 lbs. American Flour, 18 barrels.

Manchester, Sept. 9.-The sudden, but partly anticipated, change in the measures adopted by Ministers, for the admission of bonded Oats, Rye, Beans, Pease, and Oatmeal, for immediate consumption; and the further importation of those articles has occasioned a complete stagnation in the trade. To-day we had a fair attendance of town and country dealers, but the business transacted was very trifling. Wheat has declined 4d. per bushel, and scarcely any sales made at that reduction.-Oats are fallen in value 1s. per 45 lbs., which induced some buyers to purchase rather freely. -Barley and Beans cannot be quoted with any degree of accuracy, and our currency is merely presumed.-Flour moves off heavily, and is is. to 2s. per bag lower.-Oatmeal (through the great depression in Oats) has given way &s. per load.--Wheat, English, 57s. Ed. to 62s. 10d.; Irish, 57s.
