REVIEW OF THE HEMP MARKET FOR 1860.

From WOOD & NICHOLS' Market Report

Manilla Hemp.-—The history of this article for the last three years is characterized by a gradual decline in price, which, excepting slight and temporary interruptions, has continued through the past year. The decline was arrested in the spring at 6c., by a speculative feeling, based upon an advance in rates of freight at Manilla, and price was carried to 61c. This advance was soon lost, and market remained pretty firm at 6c., until late in the summer, when increased demand for consumption stimulated holders, and appreciation followed. The market afterwards again receded, and has been steadily drooping until now. The cause for this decline is sufficiently explained by the constant addition of large car. goes to an overstocked market; and, in many instances, the pressure of a heavy surplus has crowded the price below cost of importation. The gathering of this article in the provinces of Manilla was greatly stimulated by a demand for return freight from a rapidly increasing tonnage, consequent upon the development of the California trade. As supply was thus augmented, depreciation succeeded; and, in order to realize as much as when hemp commanded better prices, the decline has been followed by increased supply. This process has been going on until confidence has been weakened ; and, as the production is inexhaustible, requiring no cultivation, the inquiry is suggested as to when it would touch bottom. It is thought that the limit is nearly reached, and that the effect of the present state of the market will bring the price to a point which will effectually stop the supply. Arrivals at Manilla to October 6th, 191,237 bales, against 181,326 do., same time in 1859.

Our statement exhibits a large increase upon the consumption of last year. This increase has been steadily growing, although for several years the shipping interest has been depressed, and the demand for its uses, which, in prosperous times, amounts to nearly one-third of the consumption, has been small. The low price of the material has undoubtedly' contributed to the result. Early in the autumn a great impetus was given to trade by the sudden appreciation of a large crop of cereals; and manufacturers found plenty of employment with the greatly increased orders, resulting from the favorable turn of fortune at the West. An extraordinary prosperous career was suddenly checked, and the country agitated by a political excitement, that has entered, with its paralyzing influence, into every department of trade and industry. Demand has subsided and values become nominal. The last sale of hemp was made at a trifling concession from 5fc. Buyers offer 54c.

Stock in the country on the 1st January, 1857, 82,140 bales; same time in 1858, 69,683 bales; in 1859, 81,396 bales; in 1860, 84,594 bales; in 1861, 86,815 bales.

Jute.—The low price of Manilla hemp has brought that article in competition with jute during the past year, and, to some extent, has driven the latter out of the market. In view of the reduced stock at the commencement of the year, and the large falling off in shipments at Calcutta, holders were firm at $92 50 @ $95; but trade was dull, and manufacturers demanded lower prices. Market gradually yielded until early in the summer, when an unexpected demand came from the South for baling use, to supply the deficiency of Western rope. With moderate supplies, a gradual reduction of stock ensued, and holders became firmer. Later in the season, a prospective short supply induced manufacturers to buy freely, and the market became quite active. Appreciation rapidly followed, and sales were made as high as $110; but the advance has been strongly resisted, manufacturers contending that, so long as Manilla continues to decline, they must stop, unless jute can be obtained at lower rates. During the last month they have done but very little, and will only meet the pressing wants of the trade until a better chance for profit exists than they now have. A small lot was brought out from England, but her short supplies have not permitted our market to be relieved from that quarter. The erop of 1859 was small and of inferior quality. Good or even fair qualities have been scarce; and a
