Politically, the 1'unjaub continued in nearly the name state of tranquillity as it has remained for some time past. The elements have, however, been at work; heavy rainB have fallen, and there has been an earthquake, which it would seem was not sufficiently violent to be followed by any disastrous consequences. On the contrary, it has Usd the effect of causing a favorable change in the temperature, of which the country was much in need. The Kurrachen custom house returns have been published, and show the total value of the exports and imports of the country to be equal to about a third of the sum annually drawn from the treasury of India for its support. The exports consist chiefly either of horses, which have merely passed through from countries above the pisses, or in money sent to iiombay in payntewl ol supplies; the imports appear to be maiuly the supplies required for the troops The country was tranquil and healthy.

[From tbo Mark Ua* Express. May II.] One of tbose sudden changes which under peculiar circumstances ere not Infrequent In the grain trtdi.hu taken place. Up to the . ummcncemenl of May, the spring *u oold and ungenlnl, and at the autumn town erupt were supposed to have been previously more or les? injured by the extreme severity of the winter, the moat gloomy torebodtugs respecting tprobable result ol tlie next liHrveat, were entertained The uneasiness on this score was greatly heightened by the exhausted at ate <)f the stocks in granary, by the belief that the quantity in the hands of tin growers wax likewise eery short. Hud by tits daily exports ou an exteusive scale from tliia country to h'rauce and other continental state*. There was consequently, nothing extraordinary in the rapid rise which occurred iu prices; indeed, fur several weeks in succession the supplies proved inadequate to meet th? home and foreigu demand, and holders were enabled to obtaiu almost any price they chose to ask At first the beneficial change which took place in lite weather produced little or uo effect, but the wonderful improvement which was gradually being worked in tlie growing crops soon began to operate, and in districts where scarcely auy corn was before supposed to be left, thceuppliex increased, at the same time arrivals from the l Baltic began to drop iu at several of the principal maritime ports, whilst buyers contracted their operation* , in proportion as sellers manifested anxiety to realise, un- , Hi business has couie to a complete stand Having arrived at this point, it may perhaps not be amiss to ex amine a lit'ix into tba real stale of the race, anil eudeav- ( or to ascertain in how fur our position In actually ohang- | uiI fur tbo better. The chief, if not the only alteration in , our favor, appears to un to be that the harvest, which threatened ,o be ? very late one. may now be reasonably { calculated to commence as early ae in average year*, whilst there is nothing about the aspect of the crops to ] give rise to any fear as to the probable yield. Thi? is certainly un immense point gaiued, as we are likely to have the new crop ready for consumption three weeks earlier than was supposed would be the case, which will make a great difference in the quantity required to be imported The cessation of exportation to thecontinent ' has. besides, done uway with an extra drain on our stocks, and tbo reaction in price thus far appears, therefore, warranted by circumstances. There is, however, some danger that the fall tuny continue too loug. We say danger, for n that case the demand from foreign countries would probably revive ; and if prices here were to recede oelow the level of the continental countries where scarcity prevails, a portion of the supply originally intended for Great llritain would be sure to be diverted from us to those States ; which might prove a serious iuconveuience. in case uuything untoward should occur to render the harvest less favorable than is now expected The fall iu the value of wheat from the highest point, taking oue market with the other, caunot be estimated at less thau lbs per quarter up to this time (Saturday '29th of -l ay); and there is every appearance of prioes going considerably lower; but when ouce the lowest point shall have been reached we are likely to have an extensive demand. The millers, dealers and bukers are working up their stocks tzlthout making any purchases ; and this they will probably continue to do so long as they have anything left. So soon, however, as they have exhausted what they have on hand they must again come into the markets; by that time sellers will probably have recovered some degree of confidence; und if id idle interval the weather should become at all doubtlul, a portion of the decline would speedily lie recovered Prices of all kinds of spring corn and pulse have been affected by the reduotiou which has tisen ptuce in wneai; ana mm win, iu a necuiu mwui. coutiuue to be the case so long us the latter article recedes. The ltd vices from Scotland do not speak so favorably of the weather as might have been expected, but in Ireland plentiful showers, with a high teniperatuie, appear to have been experienced; under the influence of which the crops have been forced rapidly forward. The arrivals of wheat coastwise Into London have not oeen large this week, the total quantity received up to this (Saturday) evening amounting to only 3,474 quarters, which, compared with the supply of the preceding week, shows afallingotf. The display at Mark-lane by laud-carriage samples from the home counties has also leeu moderate; the town millers having, however, come to the determination of not buying whilst they have any -locks, the trade has been miserably dull, with a deciued downward tendency in prices. On Wednesday scarcely a bargain was closed, in which position of affairs it became almost impossible to quote prices; but hud purchasers come forward they might have bought at;2s. to 3s. per quaiter lower. On Friday it would have been necessary to have made a further couoession of 3s. to 3s. per quarter to have effected saleB; and this factors were not indisposed to do, but so averse were the millers to act that hardly a transaction took plaoe. Of foreign wheat we have again to report a fair arrival, viz. 30.943 quarters; and a portion of the previously received supply having remained unsold there is now rather a large quantity at this port ou board ship. Importers are naturally auxious to avoid incurring landing expenses if possible, and have consequently manifested some anxiety to realize; hut the country demand having suddenly ceased it has become impossible to sell largely even at considerably reduced rates. In this state of affairs a part, if not the whole, of what has lately been received will have to be I taken to granary, and when this has once been done f there is likely to be less pressure on the market. a After our last Monday's report was written, the town i millers determined to lower the top price of flour from j this, to 80s. per sack, and they have been freely offering their best marks this week at the latter rate, without being enabled to induce the bakers to buy. Ship samples have also been very difficult of disposal, and Norfolk households have in many cases been offered 6 s to Ss. per -uck below the extreme rates of the preceding week. American flour has been wholly neglected; and the decline in the price of the latter has been fully as great as ou that of home manufacture. The quantity of English barley brought forward has been small, and the receipts from abroad only moderate. The reduction in wheat and flour has, however, had the effect of lessening the inquiry for all other kinds of grain, and barley lias not failed to feel the influence l'he trifling business done has been at terms decidedly below those of Monday last; and the difficulty experienced in making sales was greater at the close than earlier in the week. The operations in malt have been on a strictly retail scale, and the turn has been greatly in favor of the purchaser. The market has been very sparingly supplied with oats of homo growth; from our own coast only 331 quarters, from Scotland 330 quarters, and from Ireland 1,344 quintets. having come to band. Having, however, received 11,333 quarters from abroad, uo scarcity has been experienced. Neither on Wednesday nor Friday were any purchases of importance made by buyers from the country, and the local demand being very restricted, the trade was languid in the extreme. Under these circum-tances, accurate quotations cannot be given, for whilst ueedy buyers had to pay nearly former rates for the -.mail quantity they required, it is certain thrt prices is per quarter lower must have been taken to have sold largely, Jieaus and )>ease have met with very little attention; and with trilling stocks and small supplies the value of these articles has tended downwards. The inquiry for Indian oorn has fallen off very considerably; and tbougli sellers have manifested a disposition to meet buyers by taking,less money, they have been unable to make much progress. The effect of the late decline in the value of wheat in the British markets on quotations on the continent can, of course, not as yet be knowD; but the general tone of the advices from the near ports is somewhat subdued in < that experienced here. At Danzig, however, prices were i apparently still on the advance on tho 3id inst. The ' supplies down the Vistula bud been small, and a good many orders having been received to buy, high-mixed wheat, of 02 lbs weight per bushel, had realized equal to Sos. t>d. per quarter, showing a rise on the rates of that day se'ruiight of ubout tis. per quarter. The arrivals from the 11 ug. the Vistula, and Lower Poland together, would, it was estimated, amount to about 120.000 quarters by the eud of June j At Konigsberg, on the 33d inst., business was quite at . a stand for want of supplies, and very high prices were j asked for the trilling stocks in granary. , From Rostock we have no advices this week; but a letter from Stettin of th 34tb of May informs us that holders of wheat were then asking equal to 90s per quarter, free on board, for qualities weighing only 60 lb per bushel. Rye had been, and still continued, in great request for the interior, und prices corresponding with 73s per quarter hud been paid for the article. Tne transactions iu wheat had not been of much importance, owing, in the lirst place, to the scantv nature of the stock, and further, to the extreme nigh prices asked. The weather had been cold for tho season; still there wore no complaints of the appearance of the growing crops. At Hamburg much less effect appears to have been produced on the msrket by tho dull Fnglish accounts the complete exhaustion of the stocks on the spot, and 1 the coutinucd demand irom tho interior having given confidence to the sellers. The firmness of the latter had been further increased by the news from Sweden, stating that tho government had deter mined to prohibit the export of all kinds of grain except wheat, buyers had generally acted with much caution, but their wants being pressing 94s to !*;>s per quarter had been paid for wheat in retail, and equally high rates for rye, barley, and oats. In the French markets no very marked alteration appears to haveoccurred in quotations. At Paris. on Thursday, the wheat trade was quiet, but there was no decline The accounts from Havre are of a similar character; and the only thiug worthy of notice In the intelligence from the latter place is, that there were still buyers of flour, for delivery in June, at high prices, which would appear to indicate that public opinion continued in favor o( a rife during the summer months. At .Marseilles, on the 31st of May, holders of wheat were rather anxious to realize. Polish Odessa on the spot was worth only 63*. per quarter, and for delivery in June, Abs per quarter. l-'rom Leghorn our advices are of the 19th of May; the wheat trade was then decidedly dull, and Kgyptiau was obtainable at about 36s to 37s per quarter. .Marianopoli and other good qualities, on the spot, were held at equal to 64s to 66s per quarter free on board, but there were sellers for June delivery at 69s to 60s , or for delivery in July at A6* to 68s per quarter. Advices from St Petersburgh. received this morning indicate henceforth a supply of grain to tho south of Furope which will be regulate i oaly by the number of vessels In the St. Petersburgh market alone the purchases for exportation up to the present tune amount to i no less than 3,009.000 chetwerts; ''but," it Is observed, I ' thn rifldlp in hntr in it. t.n hn Hhinnod Tho n a vims t inn I Ii now extahlixhed. the Favourite,from London, and lh?

We hope the extreme anxiety if all parties on this sensitive subject, bus led to an er- f ror in tbe propagation of this report, but it comes simultaneously from so many quarters, it cannot be altogether disregarded ; it is satisfactory to know, howover, that from the diminished plant of the potato, and the a greater breadth of land Bown with other edible crops, the t country is by no means so dependent upon the former f ss It has hitherto been Under the influeucoof these favorable accounts, trade has continued gradually to improve ; discounts have been ol more easy attainment, and confidence has gained ground : at the same time great caution is manifested as to new or extended ope- J rations, it beiDg but too probable that in this varying j climate the harvest will not be seourod without such | further alarm as again to create derangement and din- 'j trust in the money market. The improvement in c cotton noticed in our last circular as having taken ( place during the preceding few days, has since e continued: our quotations on the a 1st ult. were l raised from those of the previous Friday % a % per c lb.; and (luring the following week, the improvement was t more decided in every respect; holders offered their <j stocks sparingly, and at almost dally advancing prices, | the trade bought pretty freely, and tbe market closed \ steadily at an advance of % a % per lb. on previous quo- c tations. t Sales, Sic., or Cotton. 7"! ilk , IVeek Imp't Imp't Slock Total ,*m? d I f ending Salei Sptc'n Exp't Jim. total. ?tfm.

' MUSGROVE St VANCE, Cotton Brokers. j Liverpool Cotton Market, May 31.?The market this week has assumed a more regular and steady aspcot, and the demand, though not very active, has been sufficinnt to absorb the quantity for immediate sale and to in- " duce more confidence amongst our holders ; the pressure r being greatly removed, prices have recovered, American description of fair quality to-day being placed >?'d high- , er than on Friday last, the advance being irregular, say j X a /,', according to quality; other descriptions are ( without change, but more steady than before.

I'rovisions)f all articles known generally under this denominalon, the increased importation and consumption of the resent year is also very remarkable.

Ktc.?The trade which, for obvious reasons, has xcited by far the deepest Interest in the present year as been that of grain. YVe are able uow, by the aoouuts before us, to compare the quantities imported in he present year with the two last years; but the great listinction between the present year and the two last ics in the way in which the quantities thus imported lave passed into coueumption.and which these accounts lo not exactly enable us to show, from the fact that, in he present year, there being no duty chargeable upon train, no entry has been made of the quantities entered or consumption, distinctive from the quantities importid. It may, however,generally be stated, that tho qunnities imported in the present year represent those taken or consumption, if we deduct from them the quantities e-exported; for while, last year, the imports ot grain ,nd flour, during the first six months, accumulated iu he warehouses, in the present year they hare passed ino consumption as rapidly as they have come in.

Lordor Mahkfts, June 3?Cotton?Since last report he market has had a firmer appearance, and a rise ol 4*1 per lb. has been paid. Exporters have operated rith more freedom, and a good business has been done. Che home trade, however, buy only for actual wants rhereas speculators have retired from the market. The lecline in thu prices of corn, and more cheering advices rom Liverpool, have given additional conlidenee to the Merchants here. None has been offered at public sale, ut 836 bales Bengal are declared for the 17th Instant Vccounts from the manufacturing districts are more saisfactory. which is attributed to the fall in corn, and hould prices further recede, prospects of business will t is fully expected, be more cheering.

Within the last week rtwo the iron market ha? been in a very dull state,aud Ithough the sales have been even upon a more restrict d scale than noticed in our last, lower prices have been cceptcd. The tightness in the money market and the rant of confidence has still a very unfavorable effect on Ilia branch of business. Some small sales of Scotch pig ron have been made at 66s for all No. 1. and 63s to 3s 6d cash for mixed numbers with a bill at 6Hs Rails re not cheaper, but very little doing; the quotations are ominal at 81. 10s to HI. 16.

Very full rates are obtained as the stock Ts now in few hands ; good and One is worth 31s to 60s ; inferior and middling 44s to 48s per cwt. British?new Irish butter has been operated in with caution, although there are sellers of fine quality for arrival at 90s to 92s. Au opinion prevails that a material decline from present rates will take place shortly, as the make is likely to be very large this season In Irelaud a considerable fall in the value has taken place. Of old there is none remaining unsold, but it is little wanted. Of Knglish the supply is exceeding the demand, and there are ready sellers of tine Dorset at 83s to Otis, middling ditto 88s to 92s per cwt, and of fresh at 8s to 12s per dozen pounds. The tendency of prioes is still downwards, as the supply is very large. Holders of bacon ask about previous rates, but the homo trade operate with much caution in all sorts, as the consumption is extremely small, and less than fer many years. The value of sizeable is 73s to 78s aud of heavy 70s to 76s. For delivery there has been nothing .done, although there are sellers under present rates. Middles have been operated in 'with caution, and there is a desire to sell bales at 62s to 68s. and trcs 62s to 64s. For arrival parcels are offered under those rates. For harms there is a good demand ; Irish at 64s to 78s. Lard sells less freely, but bladilered Is held for 74s to 81s, keg and firkin 60s to 70s Rice?The grain trade having been in a quieter position, all descriptions of rice have not had such an active demand as last noted. There was a fair amount of busl-. trees done during the week ending May 22, viz:?By private contract about 13.000 bags at tolerably steady prices, excepting for cargo Bengal, which has been sold at 21s 6d. The public sales comprised 8300 bags 2270 poskets Bengal, which, at the commencement of the week, wure chiefly sold at full prices, middling and good white 24s to 23s 6d; good cargo 21s 6d to 22s; the latter being at the decline before noted. 2414 bags Manilla, which were likewise taken freely at 24s to 2 is 6d. 3964 bags Madras. which met a less general demand, and were mostly bought in, but afterwards taken at previous rates, pink and low white Beugal grain 22s to 23s 6d. 200 bags of oleaa white Italian also sold at stiff prices, 26s 6d to 2Hs. 3?8 casks Carolina met a fair demand, and mostlv sold, ordinary to good, -J8s to 39b 6d. 366 bags Java sold at 33s tid to 34s 6d. The market closed heavily ou the 31st ult., and white Bengal was bought in at 34s 6d. Of 1017 bags Bengal offered on the 36th ult.. about 40u bags good white found buyers at 33s, being 3s lower; the remainder was taken in above the value; cargo 31s to 31s (id; white ordinary broken to good 33s to 3os. On the 38th, 436 bags sold at a further reduction of is; good middling to good white 31s to 31s (id. The sound portion of 1337 bags Madras was taken in at 33s for ordinary Bengal grain. 318 bags Singapore went at lower rates; broken to good 31s 6d to 33s per cwt. The deliveries of East India continue large; cleaned is very dull of sale. Tallow?A better business has been done since last report, and there has been great llrmness on the part of holders of Russian; prices have also had an upward tendency during the last eight or ten days. All other sorts of foreign have participated in this improved feeling, and there is less anxiety to sell. Tea?Rather lower rates have been submitted to by tho importers to effect sales, without causing any improvement in the demand, and the present value of common teas is now lower than ever known. A large quantity of mudiuin Congou at lid to U>id is offering, being Id to 3d cheaper, but the trade do not increase their stocks; ftne at Is 64 to Is lOd, is nearly neglected. Wool?Foreign descriptions are dull; but in prices no change from those paid at the late public salt s has been made. The arrivals of both colonial and foreign are to a fair extent. Prices of English have a downward tendency, and the market remains very quiet. There are several orders unexecuted, and it farmers were inclined to part with the new clip at slightly reduced prices, there would be a large business done. The stocks, however, are very small, and this circumstance makes the fanners firm in their demands. London Tobxcco Market, June 3.?Tho market was very much neglected last month, sales not having exceeded 400 hhdB; the trade manifested a general indisposition to increase their stocks, and the business doue was principally in selections for immediate use. At this period of the year, except under (fltculiar circumstances, operations are very limited, but for some weeks past this has been observable, and it is more than probable that tho demand has been in some measure contracted by tbc unsettled state of monetary affairs; prices have, nevertheless, been fully supported, and we have seen no desire to effect sales under our previous quotations, and which we have resumed. Advices from the United States, received yesterday, state prices as being very firm, with an upward tendency, and this also applies to some of the European markets. Imports have been 5 hlids. Deliveries?1087 hhds against 1467 hbds. in the corresponding month of 1848; 1387 hhds. in 1846; bi)0 hhds. in 1844; 1176 hhds in 1843; and856 hhdB. in 1843 Stock?38.733 hhds. against 35,749 hhds in 1846; 37.489 hhds in 1845; 16.300 hhds in 1844; 16.403 hhds. in 1843; and 13,911 hhds in 1843. In Virginia there has been scarcely any thing done deserving note,a few selections, principally for spinning purposes, comprise the sales ofthc month. In Kentucky leaf and strips sales have been 340 hbds; upwards of 140 hhds. of leaf at 3d to4>*d. and the remainder strips at 4}?d to 6>4'd. For exportation scarcely any thing done. In liavannah leaf there has been a steady inquiry for good and flue qualities, both for home trade and exportation .but stock is almost bare of these descriptions, excepting whatare held by the trade. Two or three small parcels of old and ordinary huvechanged hands at 13d to 15d, and a few bales of fine at 3s 3d to 3s 9d per lb.; 337 bales have arrived ex Veloz Kicarda, but not yet sampled. Recent advices speak unfavorably of the forthcoming importation, Ilavana Cigars?The market being very well supplied with good and fine sorts, buyers have limited their purchases, and have been disinclined to increase their stocks. Some sales have been made at lower rates, both for home trade and exportation. Manilla cheroots have been in limited demand; holders are dim at present prices. In Cuba the demand has been moderate; the present large stock has prevented the trade from buying, except to a limited extent Sales have been made at a slight decline. Columbian Leaf and Roll?In the former a very trifling business has been done; the market 1b almost bare of fine quality, and tbc anticipation of arrivals prevents manufacturers from paying extreme prices. A parcel of roll has been taken for exportation. Stock is very small. St. Domingo?63 serons have arrived, and are in course of sampling, liavannah Seed Leaf?A few cases were taken at a slight reduction from former prices. Brazil?Nothing done Porto Rico Leaf?A good parcel suitable for fibers is offered at low rates.

Amersfoort?A lev packages bare been taken for snuff purposes, at low rates. In negro bead and cavendish sales have been effected to a limited extent, chiefly of good and ilnu sorts, at steady prices. Stalks are dull of sale. Smalls are nominal. Hxvxt, Msv 31.?Cottons.?During the past week a considerable amelioration has taken place in the general aspect of business, which has assumed a more animated appearance than wo have witnessed for a long lapse of time, and from the continued promi ing state of the wheat crops, as well as the gradual decline in breadstuff* both here and on the other side of the channel, there is good ground for anticipating that the improvement will not be merely of a transitory nature. The satisfactory tenor of tho advices from Liverpool greatly contribute < to strengthen this feeling; and although the bad effect* produced by the unhealthy state of money matters have not entirely ceased to predominate, it is obvious that the baneful influence of the financial crisis is daily becoming weaker, and all apprehensions of a relapse may be said to have completely disappeared. Our market has, therefore, since last report, been distinguished by a great degree of activity; dealers from the trade have evinced a desire to operate freely, and the buying has not been altogether devoid of speculative spirit.though this has not been sufficiently conspicuous to give any impulse to the improvement, which may be mainly ascribed to the increased demand for consumption, and prices have experienced an advance ot fully 6 to (if. on all descriptions of American cottons.

British Pleoe tioods, Sto.?There has been a eery languid demand for thin description of goods, but there having been more dee ire on the part of importers to sell, the business dono ha* been, on the whole, to a fair extent, considering the season of the year, though chiefly .-ooil tied to staple* of general and local consumption Urey shirting* continue to sell freely, andjaoconets, white and grey, hare been realised to gonio extent, at about previous rat' H. Madapollauis are without auy change. White twdls are very dull of sale at low rates. Urey twills or drillings, from rece nt gales of American, are rather lower iu value.

The finer qualities of 45-inch are in moderate inquiry, but at very low rates. In other Glasgow plain cottons very llttlo has been douo Printed goods of almost every description remain without demand. Turkey red twills and cambrics are in a fair inquiry, and the stock beiug moderate prices are maintained. Turkey red mulls and jacoonets are rather lower, and for fancy goods there is generally only a moderate demand Printed haukercniefs of suitable styles are in fair request. Mule Twist?The yarn market has been very dull, and rather lower rates nave again been taken for tho limited sales that have been etTected. The stock Is large, beiug not under !>000 to 9o00 bales in importers' hands. Turkey Red Twist? The sales of red yarn aro also very small. Exports.? Raw bilk?In the absence of arrivals of the new silk, and with continued unfavourable advices from the home market, the business done in this staple has been on the most limited scale. Prices are looking down, and. unless dealers consent to submit to reduced rates for the silk about to arrive, shippers are not likely to be induced to come forward, bilk Goods?Corahs have continued in fair demand, all of good quality finding bnyers. Shipments of chop pulis are stilllight. and no transactions in these are reported. Saltpetre?Shipments to England remain very small, the advanced rates oftonnnge having again checked the limited demand that previously existed. Purchases for America cantinue large, chiefly of Chuprah, at very low rates. Co.'s rs 4-10 to 6-3 per fy raids Prices are:?Gudna, 6 10 to 6 Company's rs per f mid; Chuprah, 4 10 to 6 4 do; Refine, 6 to 6 3 do. Rice?There was rather more inclination to ship rice, on receipt of the mail per Precursor, reporting an advance of home prioes to near their previous highest poiut. The business done has however, been moderate, and prices are without change. Indigo?Latterly the demand has improved. A few days ago 318 chests were oifcred by public sale, which found buyers at fair rates. The apprehension felt for the new crop a few weeks ago bos abated, and at present the indigo districts are considered to be proceeding under favourable auspices. CxaToa, March 29.?Imports?In imports prices are higher generally than last month; though the firmness evinced by importers has iu some meusuro been counterbalanced by the effect of sales in second hands, made for the immediate wants of the dealer. In the export market very little legitimate business has been done for the English market. And tho .effect of the system of advances to the native dealers on tea shipments still continues, In some degree, to be felt. The late advices, coo. iroui r.ngianu win cneca purchases lor some tim? to come. The export of (Jongou. from shipments under advance, has been thereby materially increased; but in all other kinds, more especially in Twankay and Young Hyson, the export has been considerably under that of last year. Cotton?There has been muok speculation among the Chinese, who are the chief holders, and prices havo been rapidly forced up. The present quotations are, for cash in two mouths, Bombay 8 6 to 10 taels; Madras and Bengal 9.2 to 10 -2. Cotton yarn has advanced. For cash in two months, Nos lti to 24 are worth 30 to $32; Nos. 26 to 32, 33 to $36; Nos. 34 to 42, 36 to $38. Kxports?Tea?A fair amount of business has been done in most kinds since the departure of last mail, and generally at lower rates fur cash, the teamen being desirous to realise, that thuy may be enabled to make their arrangements for the purchase of the new crop. Silk?About 800 bales are reported as settled at from 390 to $406 per picul for Tsutlee. State ot Trade. Lancashire, June 3?The broad silk trade at Manchester and the neighboring towns has lmprovod, and this week several manufacturers have got large orders for mixed goods for exportation to America. The llnest sorts of fancy goods are in moderate request, and there is every appearance of a brisker trade in the silk business. The cotton trade at Blackburn is dull, the demand for manufactured goods is limited, and yet stocks continue low. The hands in the mills continue to work short time. The ginghim and fancy nankeen business at RadclifTe, Whitetteld, and their neighborhoods, is In a moderate healthy state. Thu woollen cloth trade of Saddleworth remains dull. The mechanics and machine makers at Oldham are generally fultv employed, at good wages The hatting business at Ashton, Benton. Hyde and Stockport, remains in a depressed stato. The hands in nearly all the cotton mills'at Bury, Heywood, Rams bottom, and their neighborhoods, are working three and four days per week. Man heitkr. June 1.?Since Friday last there has been a pretty fair enquiry for goods; but as manufacturers generally demand increased rates in some proportion to the advance in the cotton market, the actual business has been limited. Prices, though irregular, have boen generally rather higher than those of last week. For yarn, there has been very little demand; but the spinners have been very Arm in prices, and the few orders executed have been at rather higher rates. Bo far us we can learn, there is no material change in the extent of short time working; but we understand that some of the manufacturers and spinners, who have determined to reduce their time to ten hours, as soon as thu bill now before the house of lords is passed. This resolution, if extensively acted upon, will cause a sensible diminution in tho production af goods aud yarns. ? Guai ilian. I-eedm, Tuesday, June 1.?We had last week, on account of thu holldayi, a very quiet market; and to-day, thu business done at our cloth halls wore a similar appearance. There is an opinion abroad that wool, like corn, is to oome down in price; and being on the eve of the Oermun wool fairs, many transactions are susponded until this point is ascertained. Huddebifield, Tuesday, June 1.?We have had more buyers, and every thing looks more cheerful than they have done for some weeks past. It is hoped by many that the worst period is past. More business has been done in wool, and the foreign warehouses continue busy with American orders.
