TOTHING new has occurred respecting the seed season, and there is little doubt but that which yet remains will be done with equal success as the former and early part. Rain is pretty generally wanted; and the late winds, frosts, and dews, have kept vegetation backward, and, in some instances, have injured the early-fruit bloom. The corn yet retains its healthy colour generally, and will doubtless escape injury, provided the present ungenial winds do not continue too long. Perhaps the corn, particularly the wheat, is nowhere very luxuriant and bulky in the gross this year, but it may not be the less productive, should we be so fortunate as to have warm and seasonable weather at the blooming time. We do not hear that any great breadth of Spring wheat has been sown; that speculation, probably, having been checked by the appearance of falling markets; in fact it has seldom succeeded, or produced a crop of equal worth with the proper Spring corn. The corn markets are daily tumbling down, and for the best reasons, the quantities already at market and on hand, appear, rather unexpectedly to some persons, fully adequate to our present and future demand, looking forward to the crop on the ground. Nothing can now raise the prices of corn, or rather prevent them from falling still lower, but the continuance of unfavourable weather to the approaching critical season; nor can any thing, under the present extensive culture, keep the prices of the neces saries of life at their present height, but the continuance of the war.
Respecting our Cattle system, turnips and all other winter crops have held out to admiration, through the Winter and Spring; and, notwithstanding the want of rain, the young grasses promise well, and, in point of quality, will doubtless prove excellent, as is generally the case in dry seasons. Both fat and lean stock, in the country, are about £74 per cent. dearer than at the same time last year. Pigs are rather short in quantity, and dear; many, however,
have been fed on the surplus of potatoes, but as summer feeding is not now so extensive as formerly, hogs will be scarce in the Autumn. Smithfield has been kept remarkably thin of late, which has, in fact, suited the reduced demand for butchers meat: this scarcity has been occasioned by the great quantity of feed, on which account stock has been held back for the May markets.Beef 58 to 5s 4d.

THE goods from the Baltic do not rise so much in price as has been usual in other seasons, while the navigation of that sea was shut up by the ice. The re-exportation of Baltic goods from England to the Mediterranean, is partly interrupted by the war with Spain, and in part otherwise diminished by the new trade to the port of Odessa.
The exportation of manufactured British goods, and those in the highest and most polished manufacture, to the East and West Indies, and to America, was never greater than at present.
The prices of raw and refined sugars have experienced a general reduction during this month.
Cotton wools have lately risen considerably in price, and are still on the adThis circumstance does not proceed from any deficiency in the ordinary supply, but from an increased demand in our manufactories, a result which must expose to the enemy the folly of his efforts to exclude our merchandise from the markets of the continent, by proving that his restrictions only tend to give new channels to our trade.
