The reports from the clothing-districts of Yorkshire, given in the

Leeds Merenry of this day, represent the markets as generally improved, and the trade altogether as in a more favourable cote lition.

The progress of the harvest has been this week retarded in the North of England by the unsettled state of the weather ; but a great deal of corn is cut ; and as the air has been cool, with wind, neither the cut nor the uncut corn has received any material injury from the rain,

which has not been soaking. Many of the crops have found their way from the field to the stack-yard, in tolerable condition ; but the great bulk of the crop from the Trent to the Tweed, and of course further North, is still abroad.—Leeds Mercury, Sept. 5.
