WIST INDIES.There have been many fresh arrivals from the islands within the current wonilt, but the cargoes, we are sorry to state, came to a very indifferent market. Sugars conrinue dull in the London market, and at Liverpool they have fallen considerably within the course of a few weeks. Our present prices are: Jamaica and St. Lucia, 31 156. 10 41. 55. ; Barbadoes, 31. 15s. to 't guineas ; Montserrat, Sl. 17s. to 41. 6s.; and Barbadoes (clayed), 5i. co 51. 12s. per cwt. The demand for Jamaica rum is pretty regular. Leeward Island is also Jeolied for, in order to the supply of the navy contract. The former fetches from 45. 4d. to os. 1d. per gallon; and the latter from Ss. 8d. 10 4s. 4d. Little business has been done in the London cotton market of late, bui at Liverpool the sales are tolerably brisk, owing to the pinners purchasing rather freely. Jamaica cotton wool sells at 1s. 50.10 15. 60.; Barbadoes, 33. d. to is. 840.; Tubago, 1s. 61. to 1s. 9d. ; and Grenada, 15. 9. tu 25. per lb.

NORTH AMERICA. It gives us pleasure to find that the American government seems disinclined to adopt those harsh measures which it so lately contemplated. Mr. Macon's long threatened prohibitory bill it appears was, after a long delay in the Senate, returned to the House of Representatives, with which it originated, with amendments: these amead. ments were refused, and so the measure is again to go through the usual stages. Several American merchants are of opinion, that the bill will rot, in its present form, ultimately Be suffered to pass into a law; a supposition which is, in some sort, supported by the late symptons of disagreement which have appeared between the court of France and the Ame. skan legislature. The arrivals from North America within the last month, have not been izse kequent than in the preceding. Generally speaking, the commodities of North Ame. sica sell well in our markets. Tallow has been sold a little lower, but there now appears a greuty genesal expectation that this article will ere long improve. The demand for tobacco is suspended. Maryland, of different qualities, is quoted from 5d. co 16d. the former being che price of scrubs, and the latter that of fine yellow ; Virginia, from 9d. tu 11d. per Ib.
