Sugar. During the last month the market continued exceedingly dull and depressed, and prices were at the lowest ebb. Since the commencement of this month the demand and prices have greatly revived. Near 12,000 hhds. have been sold in London in the course of two days, and at an advance of 38. per cwt. At this advance the market looks firm, and the anxiety to purchase seems unabated. In refined goods the demand has been unprecedented, and intended for the spring shipments. The advance is about the same as on muscovadoes. It is difficult to hazard a conjecture on the future prospects of the sugar market in the present distressed state of the country. We imagine, however, that it will advance, if not considerably, at least steadily. The present demand is supposed by some to arise chiefly from the desire evinced by those, to effect purchases, who were under large contracts to deliver refined goods in the spring, at the autumnal prices ; but it is evident there is something else giving an impulse to the market, and this we conceive to be the uncommon low price of the article sunk far below its value, and therefore become an object for capitalists to look after. We hope that things will soon assume a more steady appear. ance in all mercantile affairs, and render a further advance on the sugar market certain. It is one of the great springs of our trade, and must, and does, powerfully affect all others. -Coffee. The market for coffee is more unsettled. The low qualities are on the decline and dull, but the finer qualities are eagerly bought up at high prices. The value of this article depends altogether upon the state of the continent of Europe, and the advices received from that quarter. The demand by private contract seems to be reviving ; but it is not probable that any great improvement can take place in the coffee market, particularly in the finer qualities, which are already high.—Cotton. Within the last ten days the demand for cotton has considerably revived, and the sales have been considerable. Prices have advanced a little, and the opinion at present seems to be favourable for a further advance. The stock is decreased from what it was last year, and it is generally supposed that the stock in the hands of the spinners is unusually small. --Grain. The market for grain is lower, as it regards the inferior qualities. Wines however maintain their prices. Rum is greatly depressed. Brandy is equally so; and in Geneva there is nothing doing. In almost every other article of trade there is no material variation.

Still we are without any improvement in commercial affairs ; the horizon appears as gloomy as ever, but we fondly hope, and eagerly anticipate, that we shall soon be enabled to communicate the pleasing intelligence of a general revival of business. A necessary step to this is to quiet the public mind, and free it from those just alarms which at present agitate and distract it from the mischievous designs of restless men.

Without strong measures are applied, and immediately applied, the public tranquillity cannot be preserved, and some fearful calamity must befal this country. We trust to the wisdom of Parliament to crush these alarms which terrify the nation, destroy all confidence, and must banish manufactures and commerce from those districts of the country which are the theatre of their operations.

METEOROLOGICAL REPORT.

THE temperature of the month of October has been very variable. On the 1st it rose to 62, and on the 4th, it was not higher than 50. On the 10th, it was as high as 63, and not lower than 55 during the night; but after that period never again reached 60. Dur. ing the last ten days it sunk frequently below the freezing point, and seldom rose higher than 44. The mean of the whole month, as compared with that of October 1818 and 1817, is more than 5 degrees lower than the former, and 51 higher than the latter. It may be regarded therefore as about the average for the season, and nearly the mean annual temperature. Spring water is a fraction of a degree higher than during the corresponde ing month of last year. The barometer, with a few exceptions, has been steady, and the average considerably above the mean annual height. Between the Ist and the 3d of the month, there fell about an inch of rain, after which the daily fluctuations of the barometer, for two days, were nearly half an inch. On the 8th and 9th, a sudden depression took place, which was followed on the 11th and 12th by a fall of rain exceeding 24 inches. Between the 18th and 20th, the mercury sunk from 30.1 to 29.4, and on the 19th there fell a quarter of an inch of rain. The only other remarkable depression of the barometer took place on the 22d, and was succeeded by several days of blowing stormy weather. The 24th was exceedingly boisterous, with hurricanes of snow from the north. From the prevalence of north-east winds, the hygrometer indicated considerable dryness. The mean point of deposition is about a degree and a half below the mean minimum temperature, and 8 degrees below that of October last year. The mean of the daily extreme temperatures is again lower than thet of 10 morning and evening; but the difference is only twotenths of a degree. It is worthy of remark, that, at 10, on the evening of the 10th, the day preceding that on which the heavy fall of rain took place, the temperature rose to 63, which was higher than it ever was at any other period during the month. The fact is, no doubt, to be accounted for from the sudden extrication of heat by the condensation of a great quantity of vapour.
