LONDON MARKETS.

Tuesday, May 26, 1818. Cotton.-The Company have declared 11,700 bags Bengals for the 26th June; from the distant day fixed upon, it is anticipated that the quantity bronght forward will be very extensive. The purchases last week have been very limited.

Sugar.-The supply of new Sugars towards the close of last week became rather plentiful; a great proportion was however of ihe inferior brown descriptions, and as the importers appeared anxious to effect sales, the purchases were very considerable at prices a shade under the currency of Tuesday last.

Coffee. There were great fluctuations last week, On the Wednesday accounts were received from Hamburgh of a considerable advance in the prices of Coffee at that market; immediately the demand by private contract became general and extensive. This forenoon the market is particularly heavy, though no depression in the prices can be stated; if offers were made in the present state of the market, Coffee might be purchased a shade lower; the holders however still evince considerable confidence, and would not submit to any considerable reduction to facilitate sales.

Custom Duties, -The consolidation of the Cus. toms Act has been postponed inntil the next Session of Parliament; the Import Duties, of course, remain unaltered.

Indigo.—There is little doing; the prices can. not be stated at any variation since the late public sale at the India House.
