It appears by these averages that the extreme high prices of 97 and 83 have only been maintained for a short period, and that 80 may be considered a high price, as only three averages (from 1786 till 1824), have reached that price. In respect of the great advance of 1817 and 1824, it may be observed, the sudden reduction in the rate of interest of money operated at both periods as the principal

cause.

CALCULATION OF LONDON CONSUMPTION.-There are upwards of 6,000 acres of ground cultivated as gardens, within 12 miles of the metropolis, giving employment to 30,000 persons in winter, and three times that number in summer. There were sold in Smithfield

market, in the year 1822, 149.885 beasts, 24,609 calves, 1,507,096 sheep, and 20,020 pigs. This does not, however, by any means, form

the total consumed in London, as large quantities of meat in carcasses, particularly pork, are daily brought from the counties round the metropolis. The total value of the cattle sold in Smithfield is calculated at 8,500,000l.; it is supposed that a million a-year is expended in fruits and vegetables. The consumption of wheat amounts to a million of quarters annually; of which four fifths are supposed to be made into bread, being a consumption of 64 millions of quartern loaves every year in the metropolis alone. An advance of one farthing on the quartern loaf, forms an aggregate increase, in expense for this article alone, of upwards of 13,000l. per week. The annual consumption

of butter in London amounts to about 11,000, and that of cheese to 13,000 tons. The money paid annually for milk is supposed to amount to 1,250,000l. The quantity of poultry annually consumed in London is supposed to cost between 70,000l. and 80,000l. That of game depends on the fruitfulness of the season. There is nothing, however, more surprising than the sale of rabbits. One salesman in Leadenhall-market, during a considerable portion of the year, is said to sell 14,000 rabbits weekly: he disposes of them, by employing between 150 and 300 men and women who hawk them through the streets.
