A mordegallech pacie

9VIT is proposed to republish, by subscrip-
tion, The Forms of the Church of Scotland,
&c. &c. &c.published at Edinburgh in the
year 1567, by Bishop Carsewell of Argyll,
with an English Preface, Notes, and some
account of the Bishop, &c.; by the Rev.
James M.Gibbon, Inverary. This ancient
and curious book, printed in the Gaelic lan
guage, at a period when there were but few
books printed even in English, must be inter-
esting to all the lovers of Celtic literature. To
them the single circumstance of there being
now only one copy of the work known to be
extant, will, independent of many other rea-
sons which might be stated, but which are
reserved for the Editor's Preface, be a suf-
ficient apology for proposing to reprint this
very rare and earliest specimen of printed
Gaelic, as the only means, both of preserv-
ing it from being utterly lost, and of pre-
venting the Gothic scepticism of future
times as to its having ever existed. The
prefatory letters addressed by Bishop Carse-
well to the Earl of Argyll, and to the Read-
er, &c. it is proposed to accompany with an
English Translation, as they contain mat-
ter which may be deemed interesting to

others as well as to those versed in the Celtic language, and prove, beyond all controversy, that the poems which relate to Fingal, his heroes, and their achievements, were recited, and written, and universally known, and highly appreciated among the Highlanders, at least 200 years before Macpherson's name was heard of

Sugars. The demand for Muscovadoes continues limited, and prices rather on the decline, notwithstanding the small quantity that there is at market. The fresh supplies have as yet not been great, but as these may now be expected in considerable quantities, it perhaps occasions the present flatness in the Sugar market. The crops, in nearly all the Windward and Leeward Islands, are exceedingly short. In the whole, we have good reason to believe, that the deficiency will not be less than 40,000 hhds. This must surely have an effect upon the market. There is a considerable demand for fine goods for the home consumpt. Molasses may be stated to be on the decline. Should business generally revive in Britain, there certainly must be a considerable advance in the Sugar market. The vast quantities, however, raised in the foreign colonies, is supplying the European continental market, thereby leaving a greater quantity on our hands than formerly used to be. Coffee. The market for Coffee has become lively, and considerable sales are making at the prices quoted. The demand from the Continent has increased, and tended to brighten the Coffee market. The great increase in the cultivation of this article in foreign colonies, is also supplying the European market abundantly, while the high prices, some time ago, has set the population, in many places, to look out for imitation Coffee, of which there are vast quantities now consumed. Considering all these things, we cannot see any chance of a great advance in this article. It will be sufficient if the market continues lively at present prices. Cotton.-The demand for Cotton was lately very brisk, and the sales very considerable, at an advance in price. The large arrivals, however, seem to have thrown a damp upon the market. About 30,000 bags have reached Liverpool in a few days. The stock on hand is still very large. Nor does there appear to be any immediate opening, such as would take away an extra quantity, either for home use or exportation. Cotton, however, is likely to maintain its price, and to be in demand. Corn. The prices of Grain are all on the decline, and markets dull. Rice is also on the decline. The Rum market is very dull. Brandy is more inquired after, but the prices of Geneva are merely nominal. The other articles demand no further notice than our quotations.

In the manufacturing districts, trade in general may be stated as better. Work is more abundant, and sales can be made, though at no great advance. The demands for f foreign markets are likely to be steady, and to increase; but, on the other hand, we fear the severe distress amongst the agricultural districts, will be severely felt in every branch of business this summer, and counterbalance any improvement which arises from demands from external markets. It will be sufficient, if the general trade of the country maintain 1 itself to its present amount, till the pressure upon the agricultural districts are in some degree removed, when we may anticipate a regular trade, and adequate profits. The attention of the Legislature is drawn to all these subjects, and in the agitation of these questions, it will ultimately be found, that there is no other remedy but patience, prudence, and econo- / my, and new markets for the industry, skill, and capital, of this country. There are many of these yet in the world, providing they are only sought out in an earnest and judicious manner. We confidently anticipate the discovery of such at an early period, and to an extent which will give full scope for the mercantile capital and credit of this country.

The peace of the country remains undisturbed; and since juries have shewn that they dare do their duty, and the laws have proven that they are not always to be violated with impunity, the votaries of sedition, and the emissaries of treason, have shrunk back from public gaze, and we hope the firmness, and determination of the sound part of this, nation, will compel them to renounce their guilty schemes, and hide their heads for ever. It is this will give the greatest stability to trade, and security to property and industry.
