[From the kuropean Times, May 19.] The paat fort flight has been one of tnur.h anxiety and great trial in commercial circles. Although, occaatonal)y here ami there, symptoms of an improved trade have mauifeated iheinsrlve*. atill, generally speaking. there haa been a complete Htand in business. This hot been caused by the hi?h price of proviaiona, the scarcity of money, and the prospect of farther draina upon the reaourcca of the country to tucet the impending trinla caused by the want of food in Ireland, and the scarcity of employinent iu the manufacturing districts The importation of foreign and colonial produce have been to a pretty large extent since the 4th instant, and merchants have liberally supplied the markets ; but dealers have become cautious in their operations ; at the same time they are beginning to buy more freely of articles of direct consumption ut a small cessation in price All articles, however, being the raw material of manufactures, continue depressed and neglected. The cotton trade has suffered severely from the pressure which has prevailed in monetary circles The transactions in this article during the fortnight have been small, and prices are now considerably below our last quotations. A better feeling has. however, begun to manifest itself since merchants bad leisure to peruse the advices brought by the steamship Cambria ; a greater amount of business is being done, and prices have an advancing tendency The sales of the fortnight euding May 14 were 0.5,300 bales: of this quantity 41110 American were taken on speculation ; 1800 American. 300 Pernam. and 200 Surats. for export The limited extent of the demand which has prevailed caused holders to accept lower prices ; consequently, from the 1st to the 7th a deel ne of l4d to *,d in American, and '4d to ?,'d in all other kind* long-stapled not excepted wits estab lished. During the course of the week ending May 14. a further decline of l?d. per lb was accepted by holders of American descriptions. The prices declared by the committee of brokers, Vlay 14. for fair cotton were? Bowed. 6t,d ; Mobile. 6>jd. ; and Orleans. tt3t?d. The imports of the fortnight are .12,1133 bales ; this year. 472.2A6 The estimated, stock of cotton in Liverpool on the 14th""instant was & 18.500 bales. At the same time last year it was 7di(.870 ; thereby showing a dutlcieucy this year of 262.370 bales. The smallness of the stocks of grain all over K.urope and the consequent clearness of provisions, become more and more felt; and. high as prices were previously, a ' further and important advance has taken place in the value of breadslutfs. us well lu this country as at many of the near continental ports within the last fortnight The fear that there may not be a sufficiency of food in the king lorn to carry us on to next harvest, and the doubt generally entertained whether enough will reach us from foreign countries to make up l'ur tne home deficiency, have been the causes of the late advance; and we must aduut that the shortness of the supplies from the growers, the rapid diminution of the stocks in the granaries at the different maritime ports, and the general toue of the advices from abroad, have utlorded ample grounds',for ^apprehension Wheal has. however, now reached so high a point as to put it beyoud the reach of the poorer classes; a greatly contracted consumption must, thorefore. follow; and this may. perhaps be the means of staying any further immediate rise in the value.

Our quotations to-day show a rise of m bd lobs per quarter ou the former and Ss. tid to !*?. lid. ou the latter. 1 he latest accouuts. from lite Continental markets show that much scarcity prevails in several parts, hut us the navigation was opened up, large supplies were expected to come down the rivers in a very short time, whereby the wan is of the people of those countries would nut only be nupplo-d but that numerous cargoes would be transported to these kingdoms. Accounts from Smyrna, dated 3t)th uil mention that gruin hud further declined in value, und that the accounts from the adjacent localities on the subject of the crop were decidedly of a nature greatly to allay future anxiety, while the estimates madeot'the quantity uvailuble lor present necessities exceeded all previous returns. The market for American cured provisions keeps steady; and as there is little or nothing of this description of goods now arriving from Ireland, the importations from the United States, in most instances, meet a ready sale. The value of beef, pork, mid hauis is much the same as last noted. Uacuu. however, in consequence of the scarcity of supplies, and particularly of fresh meat which rauges Iroui 7Xd. to 9d per lb., has an excellent demand, and the ratisuow current are from 2s to 3s above,those last noted. Of vheese the arrivals during the past fortnight have been of a limited cliaracter; prices have consequently advanced Is. per cwt The prices now obtainable vary from 42s to bus per cwt , according to quality. There has been a decline of 2s or ' it. per i-wt in AinerlcsU tallow cince the 4th lost I'lial article in now sold at 44* to 46* per cwt. At present there is no Ainer can liutter in the market.

The use of sugar in distilleries instead of grain, would, of course, raise its price, as an extra quantity, to the extent of 1800 tous. would be wanted weekly.

The stock is still less thin it was last year, although there are further arrivals, whilst the deliveries forhoine consumption uud exportation continue to improve. Kice has commanded very great attention during the greater part of the last two weeks. The exc teineiit which has prevailed seems, however, to he on the decline, and prices are giving way. bengal is now quoted at 23*. 6d to 23s and Madras at 23s 6d ( leaned Kice. as it is termed, has been iu good demand; and tor < arolina prices have rose to 3o* and some so high as 36s.? The home deliveries exceed those of last year up to this period by 3146 bags, but the importation lias been heavier by 63.818 bugs whilst for exportation less has been taken by 2!'."00 bags, and the stock is larger than in 1846 at this tune by 24.000 bags, whilst prices are higher than at that time by 10* to 12s. per cwt.

Liverpool Cottom Market, May 14.?L'nder the continued pressure iu money matters, and the high prices of breadstuff's, our market this week has been much intluenced and unsettled in price; early in the week, much gloom prevailed, and low sales were being made, fully under Friday's prices for American descriptions Vet. although there does not, at this moment, seem to be the same pressure to sell, we must consider our present range of prices >? a >? lower, for American descriptions. and }i for other kinds. 478 bales loug stapled New Orleans (Mustedon) were offered at auction to-day. but not auy sold.

IP. Clare and Sons. Liverpool Cc.ttoi* Markkt?For the fPeek ending May 7.?We have passed a week of great agitation in our cotton market. On Saturday, under the influence of somewhat easier discounts and the Russian gold, a large business was done. Probably 9000 to 10,000 bales were sold, nearly one-half being on speculation. The proceedings on that day (we mean the speculative part of it) can hardly be viewed as otherwise than a somewhut'unguardeu movement, and prejudicial to the general interests of our market ; especially so, when it is considered how much our proceedings are under public notice, and how very distasteful these large speculations are at this trying moment to those parties in Loudon who aloue hare the power of affording some tempora y relief. This speculative buying, however, was followed no further?it ccosed-on Saturday. On Monday the demaud was fair?40(8) hags sold to the trade at steady prices. Tuesday was Hat aud dull in the extreme, and but little done Wednesday the game, but greatly aggravated, and forced sales for money. Yesterday again the same as Wednesday, and perhaps in a still stronger degree. This morniug. on the contrary, there appears to be a fair trade demand, without any undue anxiety either to buy or sell, and the market has a more cheerful and settled appearance. During these varied proceedings prices liuve fluctuated from about )?d advance under the speculative demand of Saturday, to decline under the money pressure of Wednesday aud yesterday, the market selling at a decline of 'ad under the published quotations of Friday last. We ought not to omit reporting that a list of the receipts at the ports of the United States, of a later date, has been received. On the 14th, It appears 133 0(10 bales less hail been brought in than at the same 1 period last year. 1 hege decreasing supplies. confirming the worn. statements of short crop, have no effect fur thi' moment, except perhaps upon the few who holding their stoc ks with ease, arc quietly looking forward, not withount confidence, to the future The exchange also couics much more favorable. 111)01) American have been taken ou speculation; and 300 American and 200 Hurats for export.

United H' okera. For the Week Ending May \4th.? We have passed another week of great depression in our Cotton market and from the same cause. There is. however, considerable relaxation as to tile main dilltcuily. namely, that of obtaining cash for good bills, aud, consequently, those holders depending upon discounts for paying their acceptances are in som.t degree relieved from the necessity of pressing sales of Cotton at all hazards. This money pressure, however, aud its cause?tile high price and appreheuded scarcity of provisions, have acted upon us so tar as to bring about a further deutine of .'ad per lb on nearly all descriptions of American, reckoniug up to last night.

With Dutch the market has been plentifully supplied, and the demand having fallen off, a decline in the value took place, tine Kriexlaud, Kiel and Holstein selling at 92s to 94s, and other qualities 74s to 90s per cwt. Several parcels are left undisposed of, especiaUy of line sorts, and there are many arrivals near at hund. Kor English the market is in a quiet state ; the supply is on the increase, whilst prices are on the decline. Kine Dorset 90s to 100s. middling 80s to 90s per cwt, and fresh at 10s to 13s per dozen pounds. Holders of bacon are asking former rates; the demand, however, has been limited for all kinds, the high rates, together with the diminished consumption, causing the town and country trade to purchase only sufficient for their present wants. vVe quote sizeable landed at 74s to 80s, and heavy, 72s to 77s. There are sellers for arrivals under these rates, but no buyers are to be met with. An opinion exists thut prices will tuke a downward movement ere long. Middles of heavy sizes have been in good demand at former rates, but small are dull of sale aud easier to buy. The value of bale is 64s to 08s, uud of tierce 60s to 63s. Kor hams there has bien a much better demand, nnd 64s to 80s are the rates paid for Irish, according to quality: and many purchases have been mudo.

Wool?There lias been a good demand for colonial at the publiu sales which have just concluded, but in consequence of the stiffness of money and the dearuess of gruin. merchants have been compelled to submit to a reduction on the rates of the last uuctions of 2d. to 2J?d. for low and middling qualities, and to rather lower prices fur the belter kinds, other kiuds have slightly falieu in value; nevertheless llie demand has been better than was expected.

Calcutta, March dO?Since our last report, the position of commercial affairs has been, generally speaking, most unsatisfactory; for although the Out lit of the 13th aunounced that government were prepared to advance a further sunt of ?1.0000. ou the hypothecation of goods, at the previous rate of ds per rupee, (a moat unaccountable proceeding, when it is considered that the Bank of Bengal has raised its rates of interest aud discount 3 per caut, and that of the government has remained unaltered! various circumstances prevent this having the ameliorating effect 'which might have been anticipated, and. in tact, render it almost a dead letter, there being but little indigo or allk remaining to go forward,and the soarcityof tounage precluding it being taken advantage of to any extent,with respect to the more bulky staples,so that the amount to be drawn Irom line source will, in all probability, be Insignificant for some months. Imports ?British Cotton Piece Goods.?The intelligence received by the mail of the dbth of January, of the somewhat downward tendency of the cotton market at home, has caused holders here in most instances in mauiI lest rather more disposition to realise than at the date of our last, to which they have been further induced by the steady advance in exchange, and we have consequently more extensive sales to report, those of grey shirtings during the past fortnight being already in excess of those of the previous month; and although in bleached there has not been so much doing, a moderate demand nevertheless exists, and sales to some extent would be p racticable were holders disposed to submit to a slight decline. Mule Twist?The speculative demand noticed In our last having entirely ceased, the reported sales show a very considerable falling off as compared with those of last month In prices, however, we have no material change to notice, holders, although willing sellers at present rates, beiug firm in resisting the slightest decline Exports?Hides ?Since the beginning of the month there has been even less disposition evinced to operate in this article, and the few parcels of ordinary and medium qualities taken for the Kuglish and French markets have been at a further reduction in prices The Americans have of late come forward more freely, and have purcl aved to a fair extent both ot oow and buffalo; and sinoe the 1st instant have exported 13d pieces. Indigo?Business siuce our last has been counned to four public sales, at which about 1000 chests of low qualities found purchasers at from former rates to a slight advance. Since the 1st of November last tbere nave been exporteu to ."Norm America oiu diesis. un Seeds?Business In these seeds for the European market remains at a atand, but linseed has been in moderate demund fur America, without alteration in value Freights?Nothing has aa yet occurred tocheck the upward tendency of freights, but. on the contrary, the favorable position of the home markets for most of our bulky export staples, aud the comparatively low prices current here, the limited arrivals during the past fortuight*and even more limited departures from England for this country, combined with the advices daily received of a corresponding scarcity of tonnage in all the adjacent ports, have enabled consignees to obtain even higher rates. Exchange?Our exchange on England has had a decidedly upward tendency for some time past, which has not been in the slightest degree checked by the large amount advertised by government as available on the hypothecation of goods, owing to the extent of funds required to be drawn for. entirely unconnected with shipments of produce, which has brought an unusual abundanoe of bills in the market, at a time when the tightness in the money murket, and the moderate business doing in imports, cause a paucity of buyers. Good paper may jbe quoted at 2s Id to 2s l>?d at six months sight, and 2s l>?d to 2s Did at ten months dute, there being, however, scarcely any buyers at the former rates. State off trade In the Manufacturing Districts. The present state of affairs in the manufacturing districts is as gloomy as ever. Our correspondents at Manchester, in their letter, dated May 14, say:? ' Since the date of our report un the dOth ult., operations, except for immediate wants, have been virtually suspended. Owing to the stringency in the money market. in the face of every disposition on the part ol those who had orders to execute, yet few. if any, contracts had been entered into. Production has been, and continues to be, considerably diminished, and though prices have given way in some instances, yet regularity in prices is well supported blocks are very light. Owing, however to an increased easiness in the money market, consequent upon the favorable change in the weather, and the elate of the exchangee, a better feeling has to-day been in operation. Neither the continental or American exchanges would indicate an unfavorable appearance With the continuance of desirable weather, aud the passed difficulties iu the money market, not much mischief is to be apprehended. The prospects of the coming harvest must necessarily have au important influence." Accounts from Leeds represent the woollen trade ae very dull there. The houses in the home trade are afraid to add to their stocks at the present high rate of provi sions, and the high rate of money prevents the foreign houses from operating, on account of the difficulty in getting bills discounted at moderate rates. Krom the circumstance, however, of the clothiers generally having for some months past limited their production to the demand, prices remain tinn. Business in the warehouses has been dull this week. At iluddersfleld no improvement has taken place, and the business which is being transacted in the warehouses quite Insiguiticaut. Our last report from Kocbdale slates, that on the 10th iust. the flannel market was better utteuded than on the Monday previous, but owing to a report of auolher failure, the market was dull nuuuiii; D iiumhtu (junuinj ?ui>unwci<- I lite were much the same an n week ago.

Prioer were much the name mm last week, hut there im a general opinion that wool will be lower in a lew day* The worsted trade both in Bradford and Halifax art exceedingly dull and gloomy, aud were it not for the small Hupply of wool in those markets, prices must recede The lineu trade in Barusley is also suffering to a very great extent. Glasgow.?Our market for cotton goods continues dull, and has even increased, nor is there any appearance of immediate improvement. Cotton is in rather belter demand; the advices brought by the Cambria has induced holders to act with more firmness, and buyers show a better disposition to operate. The pig iron market is without any change in priees; the transactions continue limited. We quote as follows:?bars, ?10; plates. Jilj sheets, ?13; nail rod, ?11; rails, ?10 10s ; pigs, ?3 15s. Cork.?There is not much business doing in any branch of trade. The corn trade is. of course, an exception to this remark. In our market for breadstuff's there is considerable excitement; Indian corn has been in enormous demand, aud us stocks are reduced. holder? obtained an advance of 40s per ton.

By the arrival of the steamship Ilibernia, at Boston, from Liverpool, we have eleven days i later intelligence from all parts of the old world. The news is principally of a commercial nature, and is unusually interesting, highly important, and exceedingly favorable. The udvunce in breadstuffs has been very great, much greater thun we anticipated, altnough we looked for an advance, in the event of any improvement in the money market. Prices in Liverpool had reached higher points than had been realized for many months previous, and the tendency was upward. It is impossible to restrain the upward movement of prices. It appears to make very little difference what the state of the money market is: food must be had, and holders seem to have it all their own wuy as regards prices. The rapid reduction in the stocks, in all the principal ports of the United Kingdom, is the best evidence in the world of the deficiency of the domestic supply, and the scarcity in the interior. This fact is sufficient to settle the question of supply ; the demand is pretty generally known; and upon this data we can form a pretty correct idea of the quantity of breadstuffs that win oe required in ureal mnuin irom ioreign countries. As the season advances, the stocks of producers become reduced, and in mrfhy instances this class have been purchasers in thejmarket, having sold themselves short. There is no doubt that the deficiency in Great Britain and Ireland is full as large as anticipated early in the season, and it is a matter of much moment in England where the supply is to come from. Amidst "the gloom and embarrassments which existed in all parts of Europe, in consequence of the high prices'ruling for food, there were promising indications of an average harvest; but we know not how long they may last or how soon they may change. Every thing depends upon the growing crops, and in the event of a deficiency approaching that of this year, God only knows what will be the result. It must be awful. The effect of the advices by the Hibernia upon this market has been very great Prices have advanced with the greatest rapidity, and the transactions in breadstuff's have been immense. The annexed ^statement exhibits prices current here previous to the arrival of the pucket-ship Rainbow, and since the arrival of the Hibernia:? Prices for Breadstuff! is the New York Market. May 31.

It is the most fortunate thing for consumers that the surplus in the country is so large, and the receipts from fhe interior so immense. The shipments will, without doubt, be large for some time to come; but we shall have new wheat in the market in about six weeks, and there is every probability of the yield being unusually large. No one cun complain for the want of a foreign demand for our breadstufTs; but we have no doubt there are many who will complain, because it is the cause of the advance in prices. The other European markets were ruther heavy. Cotton had declined in Liverpool one quarter of a penny since the 1st of May ; but at the close there were indications of an improve ment, both in sales and i? prices. The most important feature in the news, to the country generally, is the decided improvement in the London money market. We anticipated this, and our predictions have been realized. An improvement in ull departments of business in Great Britain must follow any relief in the money market, nnd the prevailing impression in financial circles, when the Iliberniu left, was that the Bank of England had passed the crisis, and its position would steadily strengthen. We have given full details of the markets in our columns to-day, which will be interesting to all those engaged in any kind of business. Tiik Foreion News.?We received by the New Haven route a file of English papers brought by the Hibernia. No mail came through ; no mail is brought over that route. We are daily indebted to the gentlemnnly conductors, Messrs. Cloyes and Dennis, of that line, for early intelligence; indeed,but for them, we should be compelled to have a special messenger to go to and from each city constantly. It is strange that the Postmaster General does not have a daily muil carried over this route; he has this done over the Long Island road. Why should he not, therefore, have a daily mail over the New Ilaven route I Mexican Privateers?The Captfre of the Bark Carmelita.?The steamer Hibarnia brings aii nuviiuni ui iur uti|>iuic ui nir .vmei ican imrK Carnu-lita, Captain Littlefield, by a Mexican privateer, called the Unica, and carried into Harcelona, Spain. The Carinelita left Ponce, Porto Rico, on the 20th of March, for Trieste, with a cargo of 350 hogsheads, 31 tierces, 55 barrels, and 88S bags of coffee, all of which is insured in Wall street. The C. is quite a new vessel, belonging to Ilirum Stetson, of Hangor, Maine. The probability is that the Spinish government will seize both the Carinelita and Unica, and hold them till our government can investigate the affair. U. S. Sun- Onto, Capt. Stringhain, from Norfold, arrived off Sandy Hook yesternoon. She will be towed to the city to-day. Sporting Intelligence.
