BALTIMOFIE MARKET,
( ami INCIDENTS CONNECTED TiIEI'.EWITH,)
For the Week ending lust evening.
REMARKS.—The report of prices of Breadstuff's
in the Liverpool market, as noted in our last, received ;
by telegraph on the arrival of the Niagara at New !
York, was not correct in several instances, Com and
Meal ill particular being rated too low; Indian Corn .
should have been, as our letters and papers since by
niail confirm, 355.0385. per 'ISO lbs., and Meal 10s
17s. per brl. White and Mixed \\ heat Bs.9s. Id., ,
ami Red, 7s. 4d.u9s. bd. per 70 lbs. Baltimore and
Alexandria Flour, 30s.aS2s., and Western Canal,
:i-25.:)35. per brl. A material improvement has
taken place this week, in consequence ol the Niaga
ra's news, which will be found under their proper
head below, and large purchases particularly ol Grain
( mostly Indian Corn) have burn made and are still
making for Great Britain and Ireland. In other de
partments in business we have no improvement to
note. The Money market is becoming easier.
gO-Siiice the foregoing was prepared, the arrival
of the steamer Hiberuia at Boston has been tele
graped with advices to 26th nil. II her accounts
by this channel ean he relied on, Italian t.(U-ii was

and U.S. Flour 335. 6d.0355. Kd. —lreland and t ranee

taken place in Russia, and that the Emperor had
tied from St. Petersburg to Cronstudt.

not yet put on an active character, hut an impiovc

Blockade of Buenos Ay res—again raised —so far
as respects the enforcement by the French squadron,
' as shown by the following from the Consulate Gene
! ral of France:
I Circular to the members of the Diplomatic and Con
sular body in Monte.video.
SIR—I have the honor to acquaint you, that, agree
ably to the directions given by the Commissioner
Extraordinary of France, sent on a special mission
to La Plata, the blockade of the coasts of the Pro
vince of Buenos Ay res will cease to bo enforced from
this date by the French squadron; it will, however, !
continue to blockade the ports on the coast of the
Oriental Republic which are at present or may be
hereafter occupictl by the troops under the command
of Gen. Orilie. On the other hand, the term of 25
days, to expire on the 10th July next, has been al
lowed for the departure of neutral vessels from those j
ports.
Receive, &c.,
The Charge d'Aflairs and
Consul General of France,

Montevideo, June 15th, 1848.
DANISH BLOCKADE.
A Hamburg paper of Aug. 11, says: By a commu- j
nicatiou from the American Consul at Copenhagen, ]
there is now no doubt that American vessels which !
at this present time are discharging or loading in the
ports to be blockaded, will be permitted to depart I
even after the commencement of the blockade; it is
; to be expected that other neutral Hags will be allow- i
| ed the same privilege.
1 Hemp for Canada. —A lot of 20 tons prime dew
rotted Hemp was shipped yesterday from this city,
byway of the Illinois river, canal, and lakes, to
(Quebec, Canada. Several lots have heretofore gone
to Toronto, and other points in the British provinces.
We also noticed about 100 kegs of Larcl going on
board a steamer for Pittsburgh, and destined for
the New York market. The old channels of trade
are nearly lost sight of, in the many new and more
profitable ones springing up daily .—St. Louis Rep.,

THE BOSTON SHIPPING LIST

I worthy of the commercial character of Bostonians,
I the increased and increasing patronage of only three
years having enabled the proprietors to make it the
representative of a liberal an enterprising commit
l uity. Here are their words:
TO OUR READERS.
We commence with the present number the Sev
enth Volume of the Shipping lAst and Prices Cur
rent', with new and beautiful type from the Boston
Type and Stereotype Foundry, Spring Lane, which,
our readers will perceive, has greatly unproved the
j appearance of our sheet.
In commencing a new year, wc return o\ir thanks
for the patronage and encouragement which has thus
far sustained us, and will endeavor, by continued ex
ertion on our part, to merit it lor the future.
Notwithstanding the unfavorable and injudicious
Post Office laws and regulations, which have been
in force for some time past, our subscription list has
I been steadily but slowly increasing both at home and
| abroad. There are many, however, who avail them- j
selves of, and are benefitted by, the information we j
give, who have not yet added their names to our list, I
and who, we hope, will look upon the commence
ment of the present volume as a good opportunity to !
do so. ... c
Our advertising medium is increasing in favor with
the public generally, and is evidently one of the best
in the city. Our paper being a strictly business pa
p er —connected with all branches of trade—a refer
ence in relation to the arrivals and exports of iuer- j
chandise and the movements connected therewith —
tracing our ships and other vessels from the moment
of their arrival in port to their departure —why
I should it not be a good medium of advertising? We
know that it is, from the fact that we have constant ,
and numerous applications as to who are the holders !
; of merchandise and other similar information, and in j
such instances we would like always to refer to the j
, advertising department of the paper and let the par- j
ties speak for themselves. '

How Tar ami Turpentine are gotten. —The prin
cipal pursuits of the inhabitants in many places near
the sea-coast of the Southern States is that of getting
turpentine. It is made from the pines with which
they abound, almost to the exclusion of every other
forest tree. Many persons have no other means of a
livelihood than this employment, especially those of
the poorer clashes.
As soon as the sap begins to run in the season, a
notch is made near the root of the tree to catch the j
turpentine. This is calh d boring the tree. Then j
it is dipped nut, generally with a simple gourd, into '
buckets, which are emptied into barrels on the spot.
These are ready for market as soon as they are filled. 1
Another small portion of the tree is pared off and ,
the sap again descends freely into these receptacles, j
Under this operation, a pine will usually live for six j
or seven years, and is used in this manner until it is >
thus deprived of its bark and a small portion of its j
trunk to the height of ten or fifteen feet.
One man, it is calculated, can attend 7000 boxes in j
a season, and will collect from 100 to 130 barrels of ,
turpentine in a year. The old trees when they can
yield no more turpentine, are cut up into small pieces, i
and then piled in heaps to make tar, which is only
turpentine heated and smoked. The whole is then
covered with dirt, and a smothering fire is kept up I
beneath. As the wood slowly burns out, the tar runs
from beneath into gutters prepared for its reception.
While burning, the kiln is carefully watched day j
I and night. One hundred barrels of tar are usually
j made at one burning. When the kiln is burned out, j
i the charcoal still remains from the wood, and becomes ■
also an article of use and value.
