Inland. I . The regular employment now ?o generally given to the peasantry, together with the reduction in I ' the prices of provision*, has already produced a ' sensible improvement ui the condition of the < people, isiill there remains much distress to be . relieved. Thee* are great complaints of the i backwarJness of the ordinary agricultural operations, in consequeuca of the preference which . the laborers gve to the public works. j The accounts from the country districts are ex- ( treinely unfavorable, particularly from the south t and we<t, wli-rn there is no doubt tbe prevalence , of distress affords a pretext for the wholesale sys- | tern of plunder and outrag) which, lor some tune past, I'as rendered it unsafe for the peaceably disposed to pursue their usual avocations, even in the broad glare of dav. T'ie differences between O'Connell an?l the " Young Ireland" party grow wider every day. j Mr Smith O'Brien his availed himself ol the columns of the A'tition to commence a series of I epistles " No. 1" is add'essed to the " Landed ( Proprietors of Ireland," whom he ondeavors to 1 Touse to a fr i nd! v union in behalf of a" sasceu- ! tible population," by cxclting their animosity to- 1 wa^ls England. The Governinant are now employing about 150,OiK) of the poorost 01 the peasantry, on publ.o woiki. 1 The amouilt of rent acknowledged by the re- 1 peal Association, up to the 24th of ^November last, was ?134.379 Us 4d. France, Our advico* from I'aria are ol the 2i inst. The Crauow alfiir absorb* attention in Paris. | All the Opposition and Ministerial journals exSress indignation at i<; and the subject has been iscussed in diplomatic and official communication*. The Paris correspondent of the Morning Chroniclt relates what passed ia two of these einiinaii'Catiouj. Tne first was an interview held at the request of M. Guizot, l>etween himself and Lord Normanby, on the l!)th nit. There have heen food riots in some provincial town* At Tours, the populace resisted th? exportation of grain ; soldier* were called out; and many people were wounded, others arrested. On the 25th, the people of Bou- i logna resisted the export of potatoes and cattle for | England M Adam, th? May<?r, was mobbed, i the Sou*-Prefet was nearly killed; in the midst of the turmoil, twenty five cattle were let loose and chased about the town, and in the evening the j Mayor was surenaded with the "Marseillaise " [ < He ran out of house, sword in hand, to fight the ; ( mob alone; and was rescued from the aonse- J ouencesof his bravery by the mounted National j i Guard. The authorities refused to stop the ex- | {>ortot potatoes. but me Mayor wrote to Fans, t >eggi"g for the free admission of American fi?ur i from England A* the law stands, it is prohibited unless stepped direct trom America. Tue Bay of Tunis arrived at Paris on the 221 ult ,and took up his residence at the palace of tne i Bly*<-o Bourbon. On the 23-1, the king drove from St. Cloud to Paris, and shortly afterwards the bey ' and his suite, conveyed in royal carriages of the i court, arrived at the Tuilleries, and were present- i ed to his majesty. I The Paris papers announce the death of the ' celebrated historian Michelet, whos * late work, i called " P. iests, Women, and Families," excited so much attention. i The meeting of the Frenoh Chambers is fixed < for the U'h of January. t The tixed prices of bread in Paris, for the first j fortnight of December, will be tne same as in No- i ] vember. By the accounts from the markets which t supply Paris, the price of wheat has again de- 1 clined, but at some oI them the supply had fallen \ off. In the other parts the rise generally conti- r nues. c Privato letters state, however, that only 20 out ( of 45 days' deficiency had been made un by the i laV) importation?; and that, consequently, there < f was reason to appiehend that a rise would yet take place in the markets. The Muniteur publishes an official notice from ' , the Minister of Commerce, announcing the tlis- j a covery of a mine of mercury at Monterey, in Cal- t iforma. The mine is said to be of great value, v and easy to be worked; but the existing war be- ^ tween Mexico and the United States is stated to , be likely to prevent the formation of a company , for working it. Wnat right has the French Go- t vernment to put forth a notice of this kimil Does . not California belong to the United States, and t lias not the United States' Government alono the right to its mines! Orders have been given by the government to ' the custom house department for putting into ex- J ecution the new treaty ot commerce with the re- < public of New Gronaua. 1 A royal ordinance liasjust been issued, fixing ' the '* effectif" of the French navy in time ot peace, at 226 sailing vessels and 102 steamers, as follows:?4;) vessi !??10 of the 1st class, with ' three decks, and 110 to 120 guns; 10 of 2d class, < two decks, 92 to 100 gun-: 15 of 3d class, two < decks, 84 to 90 guns; 5 of 4th class, two decks, 80 guns aud under. 50 frigates?15 of 1st, i with 52 to 60 guns, 20 of 2 I class, 44 to 50 gun*; i 15 ot'_31 class 32 to 40 guns. 40 corvettes?20 of 1 1st class, a g'lUUirtit, 26 to 36; 20 of 2i class, a bat: i birbette, 14 to 2<> 50 brigt.?30 1st class, 16 to 20; \ ' 20 2d class, 8 to 12. 30iiglitboats,2to6. 16 trans- < ports ol nbom 6o0 ions Total, 226.

Besides the above, , I tnere is to be in the dockyards a reserve of vessels 1 und frigates advanced to 14 twenty-fourths. All | 1 the vessels inferior to the friga'es, and all the ! I steamers, are to be kept constantly afloat. The sub division in classes, prev.ously quoted, may be altered, if the Minister of Marine shall think fit. The artillery for vessels ot war i? to be tho | same as already fixed, but such modifications | may be .introduced in that lor vessels on the j stocks as the Minister ol Marine nmy think neces- j I sa ry It is positively stated that the Government has 1 a treaty with a coui|iany( giving up four la<gc steameis In-longing to the btate, lor establishing rrgul?r communication between Cherburg or Havre and New York. Nothing, however, of an officially authoritative character has yet been allowed to transpire. Some ol the anti-free-trade newspapers clamor loudly for the abrogation of the treaties of 1822 Hurt between France Rnct Great Britain, and France and the United Suites. They say 1 that the-?e treaties cause the ruin of the shipping interest of this country. In the Bibleotht-que Royale there are not fewer than l.:*r2,(>'J0 engravings. The Government has caused to be published a note, setting forth that a baker at Vienna has discovered that if beet root be mixed with wheaien (lour in the proportion of one-half or five-eighths, it will produce excellent bread, equal to good wheaien bread, and keep longer. A little less water, and a little more salt than usual, should 1 be employed. The Minister of Commerce has just caused re ductionsto be made in the im|>ort duties on mar- I ble, nitrate of potash, quinquinna, woods, and < other articles. The reduction is increased in fa- , i vor of French vessels. The illustrated newspapers here giv? portraits I of General Taylor. The republican newspapers publish a violent address from the " French democracy to the de- ' i mocra* tes of Etsrope,*? on the abolition of Cra- ! i cow. It is to be translated into everv European i language, and circulated 10 the extent of WO,000 < copies. < The Chamber of Deputies allowed to thr? Min> i j itter of Foreign Atl'airs 1,430,000 fmncs, for unfor- i ' -een, secret, and extraordinary expenses, that ' might arise in the course of the year. M. Ouieot iii addition to thu sum, ha* allotted l>imself, by 1 royal ordinance, not less than '2,210,000 franc*. ( Tie French Itovernment have resolved not to advise the Duke and Duchess of Montpensier to n;ike that renunciation of all pro?pective right < to the crown of Spain, which our ambassador in 1 Pans had been instructed to demand This re- 1 ? luaal, it appears, is couched in very courteous | but equally deciaed terms. "" i Belgium. | The Chamber of Representatives, at the sitting i of 12h ult, passed the following act Art. 1. That wheat, rye, barley, Indian corn, beans, vetches, peas, oats, potatoes, potato flour, and other farinaceous articles, and rice, shall con- I ti a no free of import duty till the 1st of October, 1 1817. ' jvernment has besides the power to grant, for 'he same period, the total or partial remission i oi import du ies on floar, oatmeal, cattle, and i on all provisions not specified in the above arti- ] ele. Upon finse articles a scale tax of tencen- I time* per 4000 kilogrammes will be levied. Art 2 That wtieat, rye, barley, buck wheat, | < o us, beans, vetches, peas, potatoes, and potato tiour, are prohibited from exportation till 1st ef October, 1847. ( tjMVerninent is berdet authorised to prohibit the | exportation of II >ur, bran, and all kinds of grist, bread, biscuit, and oatmeal. Irt. 8. That <.?o* eminent may,if circumstances require it, determine, wholly or partially, the operation of the praeent act, in whatever appliee ft ? :o exportation; it may also extend it, wholly or in part, till ihts lit December, 1847. M. O'y moved?1st. That the duration of the net he fixed for the list December, 1847. 2;id.? That the free import ol cattle be decreed; and Srd?That the act should give free entry to tlour. lie also complained of the continuance of the prohibition for the export of corn. He was opposed unon all his propositions by the Ministers r>r the Home Department and Finance, and the Jh&mber passed the ministerial resolutions upon fie term of the duration of the act? by 40 HStDN iG?and upon the importation or cattle by 86 igainst 30. The proceeding* in the Chambers have pretented nothing ol interest to a foreign reader. ltaly< The expected ordinance of the Pone, au'horis,ng the formation of four lines of railway, has at ength appeared, to the great satisfaction of the rteople. His Holiness has aho authorise<l the ;i'i7.ens to form their own local guard?an immense concession. He is understoad to be detignin-' ?th-r measures of liberal reform. His popularity is immense. Spain. Goneral Flores has obtained an army of 1000 men in this country, amonsi whom are s'sverul ollieers and sub-otlicers of' the regular army. His enl s'ments hare been made avowedly for the purpose of atiarking the Government of Ins native country lie bus proceeded to the coast, and ha* probably set sail by this time. The Ciwlifcts are preparing most actively (or a rising. Cubrern is suid to be already in Spain, and vast supplies ol arms, ammunition, and clothing, have been received in England Great numbers of tlie Carlists, refugees in France, h ive been arrested in crossing the f.ontier, and the French Government has thrown all that it ?oitld lay its hands upon into prison. It is impossible to s ly what chance of success the Carhsts have; bnt it is certain that the detestation in which the present Government is held renders the present as favorable a time Jor the rising as they could deBire. If they have money, as most probably they have, they may be e>abled to put the Government in serious danger, unless England or France should take its pari. All parties, with the exception or the Carlists, are making active preparations f?r their new elections The Government party will most likely gain the victory, for the Government functionaries have either shot, or sent out of the kingdom, or depiived of the right ol voting, the greater part of their adversaries. Our newspapers have expressed great regret at the defeat of the Mexicans by General Taylor, but console themselves by expressing admiration at the daring courage with which they say they defended themselves. The Heraldo, the Government organ, calls upon England and France to re-establish monarchy in Mexico, as the only means of saving that unfortunate nation Irom the clutches of tho United States. Portugal. The intelligence from Portugal is checkered. Both tho royalists and the rebels claimed successes ; on the whole, the most decided advantages have been obtained by the Queen's forces ; but the balance ol hope still seems to lie on the ather side. Advices from Lisbon of the 20th ult., state that i batde had taken place at Chaves, in the north it Portugal, between a portion of the msurirent irmy under the command of Viscode de Su da Sandeira, and the Queen's troop*, headed by [Baron Casal, and the result had been a loss of be. ween one and two hundred killed or wsunded, jesulei two regiments (the 13th and the 15:h) vhich had deserted to the Baron Casal. This lews was considered very favorable to the royal iiuee and the present Lisbon government. Gen. 3elestino, with his division, bad entered Santarem, ind so had the Baron de Almargen, with reinorcements from Oporto. Switzerland. The detestable principles ol communism are inhappily very prevalent in this country, and it is isid that a party, which possesses some power, is letermined to endeavor to on force them on go'ernment, under nreten e of the necessity of >reuking down what they call the aristocracy of noney. These men purpose nothing less than to nake an universal distribution ol all property, ind it is needless to say that the very attempt to )U'. their doctrines into practice will create inirchy and bloodshed. Germany* It seems to be confidently believed that the Zollt'erein has, or will, denounce the treaty with Enjland, which expires in 1848 If Prussia and the Zollverein should be abl?s to form a treaty of com merce with the United States, as is now being attempted, the denunciation of this treaty would probably turn out to the advantage oi the United States shipping, tor in all likelihood it would transfer it to the conveyance of many bulky articles, the monopoly of which is at present enjoysd by British vessels. The three Northern powers, Russia, Prussia, and Auttiia. have determined between them selves, contnry to the pledged faitW in solemn treaties, to put down the republic of Cracow, as 1 separate and ind -pendent state; and this deii^ti has itctu.ill/ been carried into effect wub exraordmary celerity, it is not doubted that this C'tiuJulous o ltrngf will excite immense indignaiOO in England and France. In Germany K is universally condemned, but unfortunately] our people ili\ro not give utterance to their opinions. Unfortunate Poland now exists no more?she is sompletely and entirely absorbed in her three oppressors, Kussia, Prussia, and Austria. The ex:use put fortii for this act of iniquity is, that Cracow was a hot-bed of insurrection, and endangered the peaee of those three great powers. In our mercantile circles alarm exists that this itrocious d'-'d ol spoliation may lead to a European war, for it is not supposed that England and Prance will quietly allow it to be perpetrated.? A.t Vienna also the same alarm existed, but it appears that the Minister of Finance assured a dep nation of merchnii'R who waited upon him, that peace would in nowise be disturbed, because, as tie intimated, neither England nor hranee would take any measures on the subject of a nature likely to interrupt tho friendly relations now existing. The Orleans family are said to be much chagrined al tin; marriage ol the Duke of Bordeaux with the sister ot the Duke of Modena. A letter from Vienna confirms what was long believed, lhat Louis Philippe has been using all his infill unco at the courts of Luropeto prevent his grand* nephew from marrying any of its priucosses ? "Prince Metternicb, if he has not promoted the marriage, has, at least, suffered it to be) accomplished, recommending haVmatiers be managed with the utmost discretion. If the project had transpired, the imperial cabinet would have been expo edto the remonstrances of the cabinet ol the Tmleries, with which it mu>t in some way or other have complied, in order to keep up a friendly intercourse with France, by appearing to avert cue court ortdodena from the projected alliance. L>n tin.- contrary, the negotiation has been carried 3n with the utmost tecrecy; and when the affair was concluded, Prince Metternich got out of it in this way: he sent for M. de Flahaut, the French embassador here, and communicated to him a letter frorn4tlie Duke of Modena totbe Einperor of Austria, whereby the Duko notified to his Imperial Majesty his eldest sister's marriage with the Duke ol Bordeaux; Prince Metternich added that the Imperial cabinet had known nothing whatever of the projected alliance until the moment the Duke of Modeua's letter had rcached the Emperor, who had even greatly complainod to his jousin of Ins not having been consulted on the subject Such is what is repeated in our circles, where Prince Metternich's protottations are disbelieved by more than one. Austria. It woulci ap|>ear by private letters from Vienna .hat the incorporation of Cracow with Austria did jot take place without a strong opposition on the i>art of several members of the A ulic Cabinet. ^oum itonowriun, iinaing nimsoii in a ininorny >n that important question, had tendered his resignation, with the firm determination to retire rom public life. That reioluuon had produced lie greatest sensation at VMUM. It is stated that the Austrian government is deermined to contract a loan (Or -10,000,000 florins, ;jg?,000,000 sterling.) PimII A letter from the capital, dated Nov. 16th, >ays !?" The news of tt?e occupation of Craoow, which baa been circnlated in this city, ha* proiuced the liveliest sensation throughout the entire ovulation, and especially among the nuddle -lasses.

An extraordinary gazette announces that, on the 16th of October ttie troops of Sehsunyl warn completely defeated, with ei^ht hand red men killed, three hundred taken prisoners, and the lorn of nearly all their artillery. At the eastern and southern extremities of this vast empire the ohotara is said to exist. Tarkajr. Letters from Constantinople of the 9th of Nov. contain shocking accounts of a massacre of Nes'orian Christians in Kurdistan, by Bedr Khan Bey. Anticipating no resistance, Bedr Khan marched into the country of the Nestorians, divided his army into small bands, and sacked M villages. The inhabitants' were killed, after women and children of both sexes had been sub ?as?^ iiii ii.ii Jew ted to the utmost torture of profligacy and cruelty. Many wore impaled, among them two Bishop*. The Porte promises the French and 1 English ambassadors to punish Bedr Khan, but I ia powerless; and it is 110' improbable that <b s | i outrage ia provoked by intrigues of the Porie with i the .Nedlbriau Patriarch to undermine tho contumacious chief, who is too strong to b -crushed ! Bedr Khan had sent three hundred Christian heads to Moussoul, with the message that it' he 1 were molested, he would sent to Constantinople enough Tuikith heads to make a pyramid. Cap? of Good Hope. The last dates from Cape Town are to the 20''i September. The Suuth African Comnwcuil Journal states that, previous to the 5th September, the chief Stock had surrendered; the two other i leaders, Mocomo and Uinhala, had a*ked for peace; and thnt Krell hud accep ed the te rins ottered 10 him by the colonial aumnritiea The con j ditions otfered by Sir Andreas Stockenstrom, on ! the one side, and partially agreed to by the chiel i Krali, on the other, are slated at length. We can- 1 not tind space to enter into the details of the nego- | tiation, which Kreli appear* to have conducted ; wmi an me laci 01 a most accomplished aijjioin;itist; but from the whole it would appear to result , ?first, that tho extste?c3 of Kieli, u* chief cl K'Utirland is to bo reoogoised: second, that he, a.s ' paramount chief, should cede to the British go! vernmerit certain portions ol" the K*tfir territory, ! as according to the treaties of 1836; thud, that res- t | titution should bo mad.> to 'lie missionaries lor tho j ' losses they hail suffered; and fourth and luatly, . that Kreli should restore to th?i colony all tho colo 1 nial cattlo ound in tho country. China. The following summary of news lor the month i i is from the OverlHNd Friend of China of tho 23tli j I of September. Tae events wtncli have occurred I since the departure of the last mail are not aito! gether devoid of interest to a distant reader. | Affiirs in the provincial city are very far indeed i from bi-iug in a satisfactory *tatc: tranquillity, in | I alt probability, may be preserved until tho nor .h I I east monsoon luliy sets in, when the crisis to 1 which matters are now evidently working, wil! i most likely result in an attempt to burn out the , ; whole foreign community; the sooner suoli a po- j | rtod of commotion arises, if it is to occur &t all, J the better. The residents are fully prepared to ! defend themselves, and although tho next gather| itjg of the mob may evince a mote determined op- ' i position than they have yet displayed, with the ! assistance ot the honorable company's steamer i Medusa, we have ni> fear whatever ol the issue. ! In our columns will be found the copy ol a chop, issued on the 16th instant, wherein the number of the killed on the 8ih of July last is stated to be ; i 20, and lor each of these is demanded the head of : ; a foreigner. Another chop of more recent date, I in grandiloquence of language peculiarly Chi- I ; nese, utterly denounces an American gentleman, | I an eld resident amongst them. India. The advices from liombay are to Nov. 2, Cal- ; cutta Oct. 22, Madras Octoi*;r 24, Delhi October ! 21, and Canton Sept. 22. The mail which arrived on tho 21st ult. informed us that the din of 1 j arms again resounded in the north of India. A ! formidable rebellion in Cashmere, headed by the j ! late governor, who refuses to resign his authority I J in'o the hands of the new sovereign, has compel- ; ted Golab Singh to go out wiih all his troops to i ! endeavor to subdue them; while a contingent of! 10,000 men has been furnished by the Lahore j Durbah f?^r the purpose of cooperation. Such, i i however, is the phtcht of the domestic affairs of j I our allies, that before the army ot the mountain ! | Maharajah could march, 6000 British soldiers j j were requested to garrison hia capital?before the j Sikh soldiers could quit Lahore, the force of Sir ' John Littler must be detained. Brigadier Wheel- j er accordingly marches intothe Jumboo territory j with a strong force of about 6000 men ; and there remains till matters are quiet, or aid an circuin- j stances muy require. A considerable detach ' tnent, chiefly of artillery, is held in hand to leave | Lahore at a moment's notice for the Beas ; while | fresh troops move from Ferozepore across the Sutlej, others moving up lrotn the southward into i j the Jullundur Dooab. Mootlan matters look less j satisfactory than could bo wished for, and altoge- i ther the atmosphere of the political atmosphere j ; uiruugirjui uie oikii dominions 11 unpieasmg.? One of those wild and murderous outbursts, for which these regions seem remarkable, has occurred at Katmandoo. A favorite of the Queen, a man of high rank but low extraction, had been ! murdered. In revenge the Queen seems to have created an uproar among the people, during | which upwards of 100 of tlie chiefs, consisting of most ol the great officers of state, were cutoti. The later news is somewhat moro pacific, and states that Sheik Emaum-ood-Deen, the lender of the Cashmere revolt, was negotiating term;, and would probably yield an uucondidonal surrender, unless an eaily winter should close the pusses from Jamoo, before the army of Gholab Singh could penetrate into the Cashmere valley, in i which caso he might be tempted to olfVr a protracted resistance, or insist upon more favorable i terms than would be otherwise concc.ied. In tbe meantime a powerful force was in full maroh against him, comprising the entire army of Gho- j ' lab Singh, nnd a division ot 10,000 men under 1 | Tig Smgl), from Lahore. A British force of G000 : men, commanded by General Wheeler, J.Uit | I marched Iroin the Jullunder Duab to Jamoo, and j j the 4:h division, on bein ; relieved at Lahore by some regiments from Fero/.epore, had crossed the Haver, and occupied Gnolab Singh's domin- ; ions. The extent ol the reinforcements moving towards tha north-west were considered indicative of some important measure on the part of i i the lirtish government, but the ultorior purpose , had not been disclosed. The report that tho ..on. j l Mr. Hardinge and other officers bad been taken j i prisoner*, and were coniined in Ctshmer'i. ! ; proves to have bet-n fall*. Tue affair a of Mout 1 ! tan weie in progress of settlement at Lahore, , ; where Dewan Moulraj bad appeared in person, I ! and rendered his eubnussion to the Kegent. Fiom i ; the Sikh capital the intelligence is unimportant; S but little had trunspired, yet that litJe confirms ; the belief that (he liaal wuhdrawtil ol' the Biitish : forces will be followed by a popular outbreak, if not a successful revolution. Nothing new appears to be known of the state of Nepaul; the Maharajah has returned to his ciipital, wiiere he is niied uy his second wife. The financial difficulties of ! the Nizam's government remain as great us ever. ] Tbei?aio strange events reported liom Madras, i wtiich have been madn ttie subject of a special | reference to Cite Court ol Direeiora. The Mar- 1 quia of Tweeddale has removed all the judges of tue Suddur and Foozdaree Addavvlut, because of ' a decision they bad arrived at lavoranle to some | natives, in a suit against certain missionaries at ; Tinmvelly. The excitement at Madras was > great. 1 he natives Had held a public meeting, and called upon the government to reinstate one of the judges, Mr. Lewia.

The Krenoli Minister of Agriculture sal Commerce haa transmitted a citculor to the Prefets on the state of the provision supply, from which ws extract the followin*: Pahis, Not. 10. 1048.?The lsst season has not bsen s favomhln one: Atill th? atimltia nf thi harvkiti of 1S11 4. ?ud an importation of mora lhan two million* of hectolitre* of grain, will afford a supply adequate to the generiil consumption. without raising the average price throughout Franco, which haa boe? 33f 6c on the year, above 33f OSo. The annuol consumption of France, for the nouriahtnent of the people and their cattle, for ired and for manufacture*, may betaken at 130 000,000 of hectolitre* of wheat and other kind* of giain. The district* of the northweit, north, and northeait, (apply nearly the half of thi* <|uantitv, *ny 64,000,000 of nectolitrea. The district* of the we*t, the centre, and the ea*t, supply about a third, or nearly 40,000,000. The remaining three di*triota, the *outhwe*t, aouth anil southeait, yield rather more than a sixth, or about 30.000,000, The ordinary price of buckwheat, which in August laat was 131 31c, fell in September to llf 60c. and in October to llf 83c. The price of Indian corn fell aucce**ively, in three mouth*, from 16f 16c to 14f 18c. and in October last to ISf 40c. It is at present below lOf in the department* of the Upper Garonne, of the Arriege, ef the Aude, of the Eastern Pyrenees, kc. The potatoe harvest it genertlly better this year than last; the easy modo of trausport of this provision to the markets, and the maintenance of it* u*ual price withih tolerably moderate bounds, sufflcientlv rirova the exaggeration of the fir?t complaint tit at wn? made on the subject. At thii moment the price at Paris and Rouen is 8f the hectolitre, and at Lille of 60c, at Strosburg it ii 4f 40c, and in the aouth from 3f 60c to 3f 60a However, it muit be observed that there are only fifteen departments la whioh this vegetable has not suffered to a great .degree, either from drought er from the disease of 1846. Baft, notwithstanding, the to'al loss does not exceed a quarter or a third at that of an ordinary year, and you wiil;perceive that the inferiority of the wheat harvest has been greatly attenuated by the good quality of the produce, and almost compenaated for. in a great number of departments, by the abundance of the inferior crops; and yet the general price of the hectolitre of wheat, which, at the end of July, was f33 96c, has risen in August to f 33 06c, in September to f 34 89c, and in October to f 36 71c. The harvest has been magnificent in the ancient Polish provinces and in New Russia, which supply Odessa, in the Black Sea, Taganrog, Rostow, and the other ports of the Sea of Aaof. The enormous exportation! in the years 1844 and 1846 gave, in those countries. a great impulse to the cultivation of white crops; the extraordinary temperature ef the present year has been favorable to their develop ment. As to the quantity, the people of Poland and Russia living on rye, and the people of Bessarabia on maize, nearly the whole of the wheat may be considered as surplus and for exportation. In 1846, nearly 4,000,000 hectolitres ef grain were exported from Odessa; and the quantity disposable in 1846 and 1847 will not be less than 6,000,000 independent of the produco of Poland. The countries on the sea of Asot may supply above 1,600,000 hectolitres. On October 13th, the prices woro, of yellow Polish whoat, 141 to Iflt the hectolitre ; red wheat, ISf to lsf; red wheet of bessarabia, 13ftol4l; dried wheat, 101 60c te 1 Jlf. The export duty is 30c the hectolitre ; freight, 4f; assurance '-hi to 6 per cent; and the charge for commission, fco , 3>,' per cent.
