COLONIAL PRODUCE..Sugar.-The market has been rather heavy since our last, and a small reduction in prices has taken place. The Refined market equally dull, notwithstanding the very limited supplies. Coffee. In this article there has been much business done during the last two weeks, and prices of British Plantation and Foreign have advanced 2s. to 3s. per cwt. Good ordinary Jamaica, 75s. 6d. to 78s ; fine ordinary, 79s. to 83s. ; middling, 80s. to 88s. Dutch Coffee has advanced proportionally, and with equal brisk

The Coffee of the last India Sale went off, in some instances, at a small advance, but there was no general improvement. The Stock of Coffee in this country is at present very small, compared with that of some preceding years, yet too great to lead us to expect any permanent improvement in prices. Cotton has been in very litnited demand since our last, and prices declining. Pernambucco, 2s.

Tobacco. In consequence of the contract with the French Government, considerable parcels of ordinary have been sold about 8d. and under that rate, to the extent of 4 to 500 hogsheads ; but no alteration in prices can be stated, our market currency continuing too high for the export orders. Rum has rather improved in value. Rice. --The demand continues extensive, and prices advance with great rapidity : good new Carolina has been sold at 45s. to 48s.; the export demand chiefly for France.

EUROPEAN PRODUCE.--Hemp, Flax, and Tallow, in very limited demand, without variation in prices. Irish Provisions continue in considerable request, at improving prices.

We learn, with pleasure, from the Manufacturing Counties, that trade is reviving considerably. The manufacturers are now giving 8s. 6d. for the manufacturing of Calicoes, which they could have got done last year at 5s. 6d.
