Liverpool, July 18.-A continuance of partial showers has prevailed throughout this district during the past week, and by advices received from Ireland, Scotland, and the North of England, they also have experienced moderate rains, which, though no doubt advantageous to the crops of Potatoes, after-grass, and Turnips, it is feared have come too late for the Wheat crops and Spring Grain, which is now nearly ready for cutting. The prices for Wheats, Oats, &c., as last quoted, were scarcely obtainable throughout this period. This day's market was indifferently attended by buyers, and few sales of any kind of Grain were effected, although a decline of 1d. to 2d. per 70 lbs. on Wheat, 1d. per 45 lbs. on Oats, and 1d. to 2d. per 60 lbs. on Barley, were submitted to, and a small reduction in value on all other articles of the trade.
Imported into Liverpool from the 11th to 17th July, 1826, inclusive :— Wheat, 7,150; Barley, 1,453; Oats, 5,539; Rye, 1; Malt, 270; and Beans, 188 quarters. Flour, 118 sacks, per 280 lbs. Oatmeal, 1,556 packs, per 240 lbs. American Flour and Europe, 3,167 barrels.
Guildford, July 22.-Wheat, new, for mealing, 13l. to 187. 10s. per load. Barley, 50s. to 36s.; Oats, 29s. to 35s.; Beans, 52s. to 56s.; and Pease, grey, 50s. to 56s. per quarter.
Norwich, July 22.—We had a very large supply of Wheat at market to-day, with rather a brisk demand. Red sold from 48s. to 56s.; White to 58s. Barley, 32s. Oats, 23s. to 28s. Beans, 39s. to 42s. Pease, 40s. to 43s, per quarter; and Flour, 41s. to 45s. per sack.
Bristol, July 22.-Very little alteration in the prices of Corn, &c. here, since my last quotations. The following prices may be considered at this time nearly correct. Supplies very limited.-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. 9d. per bushel, Imperial. Flour, Seconds, 35s, to 49s. per sack.
Ipswich, July 22.-We had to-day but very little Corn at market. Wheat was 25. per quarter dearer. Scarcely any thing else was shown. Prices, as follows:-Wheat, 55s. to 63s. ; and Beans, 44s. to 468. per qr.
Wisbech, July 22.-There was a fair supply of Wheat to-day for the season, which, with Oats, fully supported last week's prices. Beans rather lower.
Wakefield, July 21.-We have a large supply of Wheat fresh up here to-day, and the Lancashire markets being in a dull state, owing in a great measure to the unprecedented stagnation in the cotton manufacture, the Wheat trade has been very dull, and all sorts are 1s, per quarter lower, with very little demand for the foreign and inferior sorts. The quantity of Oats at market is large, chiefly foreign; English Oats nearly support the same prices as last week, but the foreign are dull and rather cheaper. Shelling is rather heavy, but nearly maintains last Friday's prices. Beans are very dull and 1s. per quarter lower. We have had some fine rain this week, and although too late to make any great improvement in the grow ing crops, it has a considerable effect upon the minds of the buyers.
Manchester, July 22.-Throughout the last week we have experienced an extremely limited demand, and the prices of most articles have receded in value. We had a large attendance, and liberal supply of samples, at this day's market, which ruled uncommonly dull; and at the close very few sales had been made. Wheat, of all descriptions, is 2d. to Sd. per bushel lower. Oats are also offered at a trifling decline. Beans are full 2s. per quarter below the prices of this day se'nnight; and all other articles have undergone a similar depression.
COUNTRY CATTLE AND MEAT MARKETS, &c.
Norwich Castle Meadow, July 22.--The supply of Cattle to this day's market consisted only of a few lots of about three parts fat, hardly fit for slaughter; prices 7s. to 8s. per stone of 14lbs. sinking offal; but Store Stock was supplied in great abundance. What few Scots were sold were at 4s. to 4s. 3d. per stone when fat. Pigs plentiful and cheap.
Horncastle, July 22.-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.
Manchester, July 19.-The supply of Cattle this week being rather inadequate to the demand, all that were shown sold readily in the early part of the day, at an advance of full 14d. per lb. Sheep were also taken off freely at a trifle above our quotations. Lambs were rather plentiful, and the sale dull. Calves and Pigs continue without variation.
At Morpeth market, July 19, there was a good supply of Cattle, Sheep, and Lambs fat of the latter sold readily at last week's price; inferior met with very dull sale.

"That law which placed your Royal Highness's family upon the throne "says, that the people have a right to Petition the King. This is de"clared to make part of our birth-right.' This right so necessary to "King as well as people, has now been wholly set aside, as far as regards "those who are in danger of being oppressed or who may be disposed to "give your Royal Highness any information unpleasing to those in power. "No oppressed man can cause his petition to reach your sight. The Se"cretary of State may present, but he may burn, whatever is presented to "him. He, and not your Royal Highness, is the person petitioned; and with your People, you have no communication.
It matters not, may it please your Royal Highness, that "you are not the real cause of these haughty and repulsive regulations. "It is impossible for the mass of the people to know that. They find, that "they can have no communication with you; they never know whether "you hear them or not; they are never informed whether you receive "their petitions; they never hear any thing you say, or any thing of your "thoughts."-Register, Vol. XXXIV. p. 717. 722.
