COMMERCIAL REPORT.

COLONIAL PRODUCE.-Sugars.-There was a steady, but not extensive, demand for Muscovades last week; prices without variation, with the exception of the middling kinds, which declined a little. This forenoon the market is dull, and sellers have given way 6d. to 1s. per cwt.; this reduction facilitated the sales, as there were more purchases than for some time previously. The quantity of sugar imported into London during last year was 167,401 hhds. 15,856 tierces, and 7535 barrels. Coffee.—This article has been improving for some time, and is now in brisk and general demand, and the prices rapidly advancing. The advance in the course of last week was 6s. to 8s. per cwt.Cotton. There has been some improvement in the demand for cotton; the request appears to be on speculation anticipating an export demand. The quantity of cotton imported into London in 1819 is 4313 barrels, and 331 hhds. Rum.-There have been extensive purchases of rum since last week, and holders are very sanguine in the anticipation of higher prices. The quantity of rum imported into London, during the year 1819, was 37,245 puncheons, and 880 hhds. Oils. There are about twelve vessels arrived from Greenland, and one from Davis' Straits, which bring rather unfavourable accounts respecting the success of these fisheries. The oil market is in consequence ra ther heavy. Tobacco. There are renewed inquiries after tobacco, and several cargoes of Virginia are reported sold at 36s. to 38s. the 100 lbs. manifest weight.

EUROPEAN PRODUCE.-Hemp and Flax remain steady in price. Tallow continues to decline, but the market remains heavy, notwithstanding the late great depression in prices. The late demand for Brundy has subsided, and there are very few purchasers even at a reduction of fully Id. per gallon. The purchases of Geneva continue inconsiderable.-London, August 8.

BRITISH MANUFACTURES.-We are happy to learn from Sheffield, that the trade of that place has materially revived, and that there is every prospect of a farther amendment. Many able hands, in the different mechanical branches of the place, who have been for these nine or twelve months past supported by parochial support, are now in full work; and there is a fair prospect that many hundred others now unemployed will be taken on in the course of a few weeks,

To the agreeable accounts respecting manufacture contained in the London journals, we are happy to add, that the fall trade is promising. More business than usual was done at Glasgow last week. Intelligence has been received within these eight days that fine mulls and lawns, and some very fine light jaconets, have sold readily in the Calcutta market, and brought from 40 to 45 per cent. gross profit. In Manchester the stocks in the hands of the manufacturers are very low; a proof that goods have been selling; though there has been little bustle about it,-Glasgow Chronicle.

THE LATE PROFESSOR CHRISTISON.

DIED, at his house in Argyle Square, on the 25th June, ALEXANDER CHRISTISON, Esq. late Professor of Humanity in the University of Edinburgh. Among the lamented characters of eminence, whose recent loss it has been our mournful duty to record, few are entitled to a higher place in the estimation and regret of the public than Professor Christison. It will not, therefore, be deemed improper by those who are alive to the feeling of intellectual and moral excellence, that small portion of our pages should be devoted to the memory of a man, who exhibited so rare and valuable an assemblage of the highest powers and best affections of human nature. Seldom, indeed, has an understanding of such vigour and comprehension been found united with a heart so pure and undisguised.

Possessing an ardour and energy of mind which could hardly be contemplated without astonishment as well as admiration, the attainments of knowledge which he made in the different departments of literature and science were, as might be expect ed, equally various, extensive, and profound. Nor is it surprising, that, with such native force of talent, he should at first have owed the elements of what he knew, less to the instruction and aid of others, than to his own unwearied industry and application; and that, with no original advantages of birth or fortune, he should have gradually raised himself to his acknowledged eminence and respectability. He was early noted at the University as a classical scholar of the first distinction. Thus qualified, he filled successively, and with increasing reputation, different offices in the department of literary instruction, before he was appointed one of the Masters of the High School; from which, after discharging his duty in that distinguished seminary, with the high est credit to himself, he was, in consequence of his singular merits, and under the impression of his extraordinary qualifications, as a literary character, promoted by the unanimous voice, not only of the patrons, but of the community at large, to the ho nourable station of the Professorship of Humanity in the University of Edinburgh.

During the whole of Professor Christison's public life, it was always an object of interest and pleasure to observe the vigour and activity of his mind, delighting to range uncontrolled over all the fields of human knowledge, and entering with ease into the most abstruse and difficult speculations both of philosophical and of mathematical science. If he indulged any particular tendency, it was towards the study of the higher calcu hus; with a view to explain its elementary

principles in a clearer and simpler manner than, in his opinion, had yet been done. By his perpetual habits of intense thinking, from which he seemed to have little pleasure in relaxation, what to ordinary minds must have been a fatigue, appeared to his no more than merely a matter of course, or perhaps, more properly speaking, a luxury. When any topic of speculation took possession of his mind, he was eager to render it the subject of conversation, in which his powers of clear conception and appropriate expression were uncommonly great. Yet this eagerness of discussion had no connection with motives of vanity, or of selfdisplay; it proceeded only from the fulness of his heart, impressed with the importance or interest of his subject, into which, in all its bearings, he entered deeply, and with singular acuteness and discrimination.With the practice of composition he had not been early familiarised, nor did it ever become easy to him; but his judgment of it was always correct, and in verbal discussion, which was evidently his forte, he could hardly be excelled.

The knowledge he possessed on every subject, and the facility with which he brought it to bear on all his topics of conversation, were indeed admirable, and certainly formed a qualification of no ordinary value for an instructor of youth.
