1 NEW SPECIES OF TIMBER.—We are g aa.,ei hear that the importation of a species of timber, ca' Green Heart, from the West Indies to this country, likely to prove a source of profit to the West India ell I This timber is used for planking ships, and has beed found to be more durable nnd better for this purpo"'b I than the far-famed Teak of the East Indies. Alth°u^ this kind of wood was tried twelve or fifteen ye .( ago by some of the ship-builders in Greenock) from the high price of it, and other things, it i9 t generally used. A vessel, with a considerable P" t I of her cargo, Green Heart planking, arrived ."t& Greenock a short time ago, and not a doubt now eS'"j|j but that the importatian of this kiud of timber^ form a part of West Indian importations in a ve I few years.-Glasgow Courier,. r REVIEW OF THE CORN TRADE.—A general I vey of the late harvest, founded on authentic i" mation, received from the various counties of cannot be but alteudcd with considerable Inter and though the space allotted to the descriptive view of the Corn trade is limited, we shall endeaV through this and the succeeding week, to ofle detailed account of the prodnce of the crops of gr pulse, and seed, conteuting ourselves at present the mention of wheat, barley, oats and rye. A< • commencement of the year a late harvest was pated, owing to the cold aud ungenial state °' weather, and the consequent check which veget0 suffered. A favourable change, however, ensued P f vious to the young wheats bursting into ear, aDcl .j, aspect of the country experienced a rapid and fying change. Reaping was begun uuder the P promising auspices, and at an earlier period than tomary 5 so propitious did the weather continue^ several successive weeks, that in few seasons „ general recollection, had all species of grain stacked aud housed with less interruption or injtjr*(|)g the corn, and consequently with less expense to farmer. Failures in some districts have arisen in the quantity and qualify of the yield, but caicu!a the whole wheat crop together, we believe the ^|| ficiency will uot be found to exceed l-6th of 3 average crop, and in colour and weight, to surpasf#tj,e I average quality. The stock of old wheats J hands of the farmers at the beginning of the baf I and at the present time, was- aud is larger 0it' I many previous years. Merchants and speculators » 0{ ever, hold to a limited extent, and the quantity free foreign corn is very trifling. The eW"1" in Mark-lane is ranging extremely low, and susceptible of improvement than of further depre e< tion. The best new white wheat, of 63lbs^• bushel, is worth about 60s. per qr.; fine red, of iO 65lbs. 55s. to 06s. Barley is deficient in produC .p the extent of about l-5th of an average.

Fine and Suffolk barley is not worth more at present 34s. to 35s. per qr. The stock of malt has usually large in the hands of maltsters and the P cipal brewers, which ha9 prevented much de hitherto existing for barley,—and in the c'^ercC<^ tricts, the low price of the article, in couseqtteii the superabundant crop of apples, has induced c. of the maltsters to defer for the present the man ture of new malt. The cultivation of oats has, o years, in many parts of England, been supersede that of wheat, and to a considerable extent jn Eastern coast.
