Still with the admitted source oi uncertainty, much light is elicited by estimates drawn from high anil respectable authorities. The population 1 » <• Britain, alone, is estimated at sixteen millions. 1 he quantity of wheat necessary for the support of tins number, were nothing to be substituted in lie 1 bread, could unt be less than a quarter and hence It! 000,000 mi Hiirn m r wheat as e ; ff ht busliols lo tnicu person of quartevs for the wholc-to this n«ld I ^H».U«W quarters fur seed.makingmthe aggregate 1 , .300,000 Hut Mr Jacobs reduces the .quantity consumed in ordinary years of productiveness to 12,000,000 and the seed being 1 , 300 , 000 —the quantity requit ed is H 300 000. The quantity produced this year is estimated at about 9 , 000 , 000 -making a defici ency of 'LHOO.OOO quarters. Now in the year six teen they made the. same quantity-the price then rose in America to from $'2.77 to >1.00. Yet, in sixteen the stock on hand of preceding crops was the.

In answer ing which l would say, that as necessity can alone reconcile the use of these inferior articles, wheat will he used wherever there is the ability to pur chase it, and hence as tire supply is unquestiona bly short of the demand, there is good ground to L-'lu ve that the present price will he maintained, ami I apprehend also that the existing scarcity will spsibly felt on our growing harvest. - The ^ricttol tobacco.

The communicationB'gneJ Dragon Marsh, presents» case of grievwuee which, if truly stated, and we have .»son to believe otherwise, is deserving of attention and prompt redress. It is admitted by the writer, that the Company have not been wanting in efforts to remedy the evil complained of, though, these efforts have proved faith in their sense ot jus trust, that the cshs grain on _ imports of grain, the product ot the harvest, and i|)(j amnun , annually consumed by the people of England . of years from 1816 to 1828, inclusive"-This statement shews, the stock on hand in 1828. to be far be|ow wl ,at it was in any of the preceding years named : andlh# E jj toro f the American comesto a similarconclu si.mwith the writer of the letter-that ''the imports of foreign grain aval bread slull's must be extraordinarily , arl , e t0 nlcet t | le consumption and keep down the price* re fruitless.

We refer our agricultural readers to the letter from I.on tlie Richmond Whig, as containing some a continua don, copied fr useful information relative to the prospect of of the demand for American bread stuff's in England. ance The writer enters into a comparison ot the present aup which ply there, with that which existed in 1816, a year i bread 9 tuffs rose to a great price in England and the Uni ted States, and shews, that the deficit is much greater now than it was in that year; the stock on hand, at the commencement of harvest in 1816, being 6,000,000 quar nly 750,000 quarte rs—and the product of the two years was about the same, make up this deficiency, he says, notmorethan 1.000,000 quarters can be expected from the continent of Europe, which, of course, leaves a large opening for this country. From these facts, he states, " there is good ground to be lieve, that the present price will be maintained, and l ap prehend also that the existing scarcity will he very sensi bly felt in our growing harvests.'* The view taken by this writer, is corroborate! by a statement we find in the Bal timore American,relative to the Corn trade ot Great Bri This statement "is taken from the official docu while in 1828, it was ters To tain. ment laid before Parliament by Mr. Jacobs,the government succinct manner the stock of igent, and exhibits in a band at the commencement of the harvest, the until next harvest."
