Barley and cat* are every where in theft pro

general as to afford very flattering hopes of the
existing restraints on their exp nation being

The ciiy of Dublin usually consumed 3400
bags of flour per week, and the recent con
sumption of the riee above mentioned, is re
turned to about 2500 bags a week—in con
ftquence of this cheap supply there has been
a drawback to that amount to bring down
the price of flour, which flour moreover
at market must ha»e felt a more material
depreciation from the demand for it being
less, and the monopolist finding it nrcefl'ary
in his own defence to fell, as the counterac

that the abundant produce of the harvell
