Liverpool, 3d Jaihjaht, 1826.
Uu llie 14th ult. we advised you of the state and prospects of our market for American produce, aud we now beg leave to inform you ot the changes that have since taken place. There has been a very moderate demand for ashes, ami a farther decline in the prices. The stock of Mon treal pot ashes in this market amounts to 14,500 barrels, against 13,000 at the commencement of last year, and tin y now sell at 29s. old and crusted at 27s. a 28s per cwt. The stock of pearl ashes is 6400 barrels, against 5000 at the beginning of the last year, and they are al most nominally 30s per cwt The stock of lT. States’ ashes is very moderate, consisting of 600 barrels of pot, and 1100 of pearl ; but for these also the demand is ex ceedinglv limited, and the prices almost nominally 3Is a 31s 6d per cu\—The stock of quercitron bark con v>g» of 2260 hogsheads, against 1450 at the close of 1824, and there is a very limited demand for it at 12s a 15* for Philadelphia, and 9s a 13s per cwt. for N. York, t loverseed 50s a 60s per cwt. with a stock of upwards of 200 tons of old seed in this market. There is an unusually largt stock of old Haxseed in Ireland, which v. ill very much depress the prices for the next season, and with even a moderate import, there seems to be , but little probability of new seed being sold at more j than 45s a 50s per hogshead. About the middle ot List month, the demand for Cot- j » >n was exceedingly dun; but, in the last fortnight, the j wants of the deaf rs and spinners have compelled them again *o resume their purchases of about 10,000 bags per week; aihi for some tone to come, it is probable that sales to that extent will continue to be made.— l li» prices still droop, and of most descriptions, the holders ale willing sellers. In the last month, tlie pres sure for money n as the most extraordinary that we ever knew: upwards ut' sixty Banks, in London and in the Country, having in that period stepped payment; but, in the last ten days, the run upon the London Banks lias ceased, and Discounts on good Bills are now readi lv procured at the rate of 5 per cent, per annum. Pub lic confidence is, however, much shaken, and a consi derable period must *-!:*pae before it can again be re stor d. The sales of Cotton last week amounted to 10,080 bags of which 4,160 were Vplands at 6LI a 7 Jd;926 at T 5-8*1 a 8jJ, and 1148 at 8 5-8d per lb.; the latter were chiefly of the new crop, and of "ini1 quali tv, at 9d; .140 New Orleans at 8d a 9^.!, a.id 280 at lUd a llicl; 55'j Alabama and Mobile at 6jd a 8til;93 Sea Islands at 2lfd a 2s 2d, and lu7 stained at 7 l-2d a 11 1-2*1 Pernambuco Cotton how sells at lljdal2jd; Mar diham anti Bahia at ll^da lid; West India and Do merira ,.t Sd a 1 Id; I'arthagena at i d a . LI; 8urat 5 l-2d a 7d: Bengalijd a 6 1 -2*1; aud Egyptian at9cl a lid. The stuck held hv the spinners and dealers in the manufacturing districts is unquestionably smaller than it was at the beginning of the last; ear. but how much it is not possible to a .certain. \Ve think, however, that th-re may he 50,000 bags ]< ss, which would in creasC the consumption and export of last year to 089, 705 bags. The i xp«*rts •:«'* v t ar amounted to 78,049 bags and in 1824 they were 52,300. The de nand forC itton good- and y irns in Manches ter is not brisk, and the trade f i s. uir time past has we believe b« cn generally unprofitable. The stocks there are not large for ti; v son of the year, but they are accumulating, and th-re is some indication that more goods will be ni.uiuf.;Ctored and more Twist spun than the demand wi'.l l kt oil' W th regard to the supplies in the present year we may remark, that all accounts concur in stating the Instcrop m the U. st.vtes to be the largest t ver grown, (except Sea Islands, and i i the degreein «h h *l»ey are scarce w II lie cotnuaru athelv dear); in Kgyptthc growth is stippposed to have been about 50,000 bags more, and in the Itru/ils it is probable that it mav be about 5>»,000 bags hss, than that of the preceding year. From the West and Hast Indies there w ill be no material variation ill tlie quantity to be received. W.tha reference to fumre prices, we observe, that the stocks of cotton in this country are considerable, and that in all other par's of Kurope they a,c small, but we think a doubt cannot at tins time be entertained, but that the supplies with the stocks will be more than equal to the consumption. As however the high prices of the early part of the last \ * ar accel crated and increased the imports, it is not mprobable but that the lower prices which now prevail, with the less encouraging prospects mat occasion the supplies to bi. withheld. Whilst the imports do not exceed the rate of the consumption, we do not tluuk that our pri ces will vary materially from those w hich arc now cur rent, but such is at presi ut the feverish state of credit, and general scarcity of money, that a very small excess in the imports w ould occasion a still further decline in the prices Cotton being now at modec.it prtc- - and likely to continue so, would in ordinary times give confidence to those who possess the means of holding it,-in either its raw or manufactured state; but from the losses and disappointments w Inch have recently at tended all investments in this article, comparatively few are now either able-or willing to operate extensively in the purchases of this or any other article; an * until confidence is restored, we recommend those who t'ur nish this market with supplies, to he moderate in their , shipments unless they also furnish or possess the means | of holding them until a more prosperous period shall an- ve. The stocks in the ports exceed the general cx- : pectation by about 30,000 bags, and since they were ' announced, the demand has be. n very limited, and pur- ! chases mav be made on rather lower terms. It will he j observable, that r gyptian cotton is yet but little used in tins country, and until the prices become nearer to those of Uplands, it is probable that Mev will continue to be neglected. Nearly 49,000 hags of American cot ton are vet held under assignment from houses who have stopped payment, the greater part ol which it . probable w ill soon be brought on the market for sale. To th Duplicate of this, we hope to add the usual ta ble of th< Stocks, Imports and bixports of Cotton for the la-i 10 years. T'i • import of turpentine to this port in the List year amounted to 77. .90 barrels, and there is now in un hands of importers and speculators, h stock of 5j,joJ barrels, bessles lo,0\jO in th- hands of the liunulactil rers: It now sells at 7s 9d a 10s oil per cwt. and is not like)V to be lower, as there call be no inducement to continue the importati n of it — I'iie imports ol tar last year were only 3-1,00 ) barrels, nut the stocks are now reduced to 7000 hands of Stockholm, 2000 ot Aico angd, and 30JO American, the last of which being par ticularly scarce, now sc'ls at 1< s a 2v>s per barrel. I i.c stock oi' Vmericaii rice in this port is reduced to o5 tierce's; 40 tierce*of old were lust week sold at 1, sfi.l, sad lfin >v at 35' per cwt. ; and as soon as a few bun ilred ti'erc- * <>t tlie new crop snail arrive, mere cuniu. j be a doubt but that the prices will he considerably low cr._white oak barrel staves sell at £9 u£14, hogshead ut 11 a £13 per thousaml. Common pine at JJda 3s, pi«ch pine 3s6il per cubic foot.—The stock ot tobacco in this port is increased to 11,%9 hogsheads, and in London it is 26,969 hogsheads; Virginia leaf may now be quoted at 3d a 9d, stemmed at 4d a 9Jd, Georgia, Carolina and Kentucky at 6.1 a 7d p.r lb., with every probability of a farther decline m prices. The scarcity of money has had ;its cflect in limiting the demand and reducing the prices of corn heat, for home use, now sells at 7s 6d a 9s 6d and (.ao.idi.tii at 6s 9d a 8s id per 7(»ibs-; wheat, in bond, at a 4s 6d per7 Ih-t; and superfine flour is almost nominally 22s a 25s per barrel; sour flour, in bond, 15s a 18s a harr.-l. The average of w heat, for the week ending the 24th ultimo, was 62s 9, of barley, it was 39s ll)d per quarter. Camp, achy logwood is in very limited request at £7 15s -;d lo £8 per ton, as is also Cuba Fustic at £9 10s to £10, and Nicaragua wood at£lUlo £26 per toil, with greatly increased stocks of all of them. The stock of Buenos Av re* hides in this market is 84,257 against 63.(XKJatthe same period last year, and they now sell at 9$ to 11 1-2.1 per lb; horse hides at 4s 6d to 5s 4d each; North American salted hides 5dto5£d per lb.— Kast India indigo 7s to 1J» 0*1; Caraccas and Guatimala 5s txt to 11s 6d per lb, and at the present moment there is not much demand for it; but the stocks are not large.

BOLTON, OGDE N & Co. London, Dec. 26. Mr. Little wood, the King’s Messenger, ar rived yesterday morning at the Foreign Office, with dispatches from Lord Strangford, at St Petersburgh. On Saturday, Mr Rufus King, the Ameri can Minister, transacted business at the Fo reign Office Yesterday being Christmas day, the Duke of York having recovered from his attack of the lumbago, his Hoyal Highness left town for the Royal Lc !ge, in Windsor Park, to spend the day and dine with his Majesty. According to accounts that may be depend ed up'-'n, the late Emperor Al< xan ler was seiz ed on the 27lh Nov. N. S. with inflammation and sore throat. He was better the following days, but died on the 1st December, in conse quence of the debility caused by the disorder, in lull possession of all his faculties, and alter he had ordered several arrangements in case of his death. The total number of failures of country hanks up to the present *ime is 61; of which five have recommenced business, and ten have appeared in the Gazette us bankruptcies. There have failed in London six banking-houses, of which one has re-opened So great a number within so short a period, for the crisis has not lasted more than three weeks, has not occurred before since the fust introduction of banking. City, Two o'clock.—This is a holiday at tliet Bank, but, in order to give every facility to the bankers and merchants, hills are taken in for discount, and, we understand, this accommoda tion will continue to-morrow and Wednesday. We have no bad accounts from the country. One very extensive house in the corn trade has suspended payment. We have not heard of am further failure. The transactions in the British market have been very extensive, and attendediili a fluctuation of ? per cent Con sols have been done at 82 7-8 and 82 5-8: the present quotation is 82.f, buyers. Money is teriainlv much more abundant. Exchequer Bills aie 2s. dis.; India Bonds, par The For eign market is much altered for the better. Mexican Bonds are 65]; Colombian, 61]; Rus sian Bonds, 78.]. In Spanish or Gitek Bonds there is scarcely any alteration; the former aie about 13, and the latter 17 IS. Some dealing has taken place in Heal del Monte Shares, at 100 pm ; but the others re? lain u ithout alti ra- j lion. Up to this hour we have not heard that anv express is in from Paris. Pv the Ganges, which arrived at Liverpool on Saturday, we have received Bomba) papers to the 31st of \ugust, containing accounts from Calcutta a fortnight later than those previous ly received. The following are extracts:— Calcutta, .lug. 2.—Letters front Prome to the 23d ult. are now before ns. They art* nut with out their importance, although they do not de tail anything specific in regard to expected o perations We are sorry to observe from them, that sickness to a considerable extent has al ready appeared, and that apprehensions of its spreading are entertained. It is slated in these letters, that nothing is to be apprehended from any operations of the enemy between Prome and Rangoon, and that the nearest point at which the enemy are said to he in anv force, and that inconsiderable, is Slunbeuiighemi.— Little doubt seems entertained as to the fact of their entrenching themselves strongly at Ava and Amnapoora; and it is a Tied, vvitn great ap parent showot reason, that iJ the Burmese con tinue to pursue the system they have hitherto followed, and if nothing but such a deserted place as Promt* was found, no advantage of any importance tun he expected Irom the occupa tion of the capital, nor can the army look for a ny valuables in the way of prize. We hope and trust that the awful leur-. which some of these letters hold out of an increasing sickness as the monsoon proceeds, will prove unfounded; hut we shah certainly look wuh no little anxi ety to tin* despatches 'hat may be expected from Sir Archibald’s head-quarters for some time to C' me.

An attempt to penetrate from Prome to Arracan had failed, the roads being impas sible for tattle, and being with difficulty prac ticable to any kind of passage whatever. The ruins bail not seriously set in at Prome, and there had been no torrents. The river, how ever, is said to have filled to a considerable ex tent, and was on the increase. Moon&heror is said to be in high favor at the Court of Ava, and not the slightest disposition shown towards any overtures ol peace 01 the death of the Bundooiuh no doubt is now entertained at rrome. CvlcuHas .flit" 4.— We have been obligingly favored with the sight of letters from Prome of »he 6th of July, wnich mention the prevalence of reports of a very alarming state, if true; but such strong doubts of their accuracy were en tertained, that they excited rather mirth than uneasiness. The reports to which wtr particu larly allude are the supposed near approach of a small army of 90,000 men (only) unde; the command of the King’s brother Of this army ' 0,000 men were supposed to be Burmese, 20, 000 Chinese, 10,000 Shaums, with 60O guns and 50,000 muskets. Oh most horrible! To be serious however, no doubt was entertained of the Burmese Chief’s ability to annoy our ar my during the rains, and cut oft’ our supplies ami communication, oi at least interrupt them. A skirmish had taken place between a party of our troops and about 400 of the enemy, w ho had seven gilt chattahs (commanders of 500 men) with them. Europeans were much wanted; and men and cattle dying very fast ” London, Dec. 26. From the French papers of Friday, which arrived last night, we make the following ex tracts:— Paris, Dec. 22—Couriers who set out from Petersburgh on the 10th and 11th of this month, have brought the following accounts: The death of the Emperor Alexander was known in this capital on the 9th. The Grand Duke Nicholas, after having announced it to the Empress Mother, called together the guard of the Palace, and took belore it the oath of allegiance to the Emperor Constantine the first The guard took the same oath immediately af terwards; all the commanders of corps, toge ther with the general staff, took the oath and signed it, and then proceeded to receive the oath of the troops of the garrison. The grief the people, and of the soldiers, has shown how much the Emperor Alexander was beloved and appreciated. It is known by letters frrom Warsaw of the ! 12th, that the Emperor Constantine had not yet quitted that city. Paris, Dec. 23—Private letters from St. Pe tersburg!! announce, that the Emperor Alexan der, who had refused the aid of the physicians till the 26th, confessed himself on that day, and from that moment received the aid of th physicians. It would be in \ain to attempt to describe the painful sensation caused at St. Pe tersburgh by the news of his death. There is a cruel mixture of affliction and hope, with which nothing can be compared. The popu lation of Moscow were in consternation as if they had witnessed a new disaster; and the grief of the Empress Mother exceeds that of any other person. She has lost a son, and the Russians a lather. The Emperor Constantine remained shut up in bis palace for 36 hours, plunged in fhe most profound grief, and refus ing to set* every body, except the Princess of Locwitz, his wife. The English journals distinguish themselves by the decency with which they speak of the death of the Emperor Alexander, and of the principal events of this memorable reign — The most liberal of these journals—The Times and the Morning Chronicle—might gixe a les son on this subject to some of our Parts journ als which insulted the tomb of a great Mon arch, even though they had been claiming some days before, with so much emphasis, the pri vilege of the tombs.

Tucsday, Dec 27, 182s. Cotton.—The Cotton market remains in a state of inactivity, the transactions being limit ed to positive wants for export and ronsnmp »ion.

Liverpool. Dec 29 Greece.—The account* from this quarter do i not bear that decided character which was ex- j peeled; for the contradictions prove, that noth-! itig decisive has occurred. On** account states I the raising of the siege of Missolonghi, and ' the very la'est, December 17, only affirms, that \ its fall was expected. The letter from Corfu of November 23, indicate, that the horrible plan is formed by Ibrahim of transporting the Greeks to Egypt,and planting Egyptians in the Morea. How far this plan can bt carried into effect will depend on circumstances; should he establish his power, then it may be very ext* n sive, and wc can conceive nothing more shock ing to humanity, nothing which more strongly re prove* that indifference of other powers, which suffers these outrages on the rights of a civilized people to exist, than thus to establish a slave trade on the shores of Greece, and to bear off, not a people already barbarous into slavery, but a people of refinement and sensi bility; men, women, and children of all ranks, the opulent being first plundered, and then transported to the fields of the Pacha on the banks of the Nile. Three European transports say th6se letters, in which were several Greek families that Ibrahim was sending to Alexan dria, have been taken and carried to Hydra, by the Greeks. European transports, be it obser ved, and what punishment, we may ask, can be too prompt, or too severe for their Chris tian commanders? We think none; and we shall be gratified to hear that a summary and just punishment has been indicted. The Monet/ Market—In this department things are getting round to their former sound condition, confidence, the great desideratum, is restored, and the failures in the country have not been, for some days, of a serious descrip tion. A most destructive storm ravaged the east coast of Ireland on Monday night. It caused great damage among the vessels at Cork; but no lives were iost On other parts of the coast, however, its rav ages were most melancholy and destructive. _ MARRIED, At Georgetown, on Sunday evening last, by the Kev.
