The last year nearly all the imports for the South have been entered at New York, while the exports from the South have been very large ; in cotton alone .amounting to about 700,000 bales.

TRADE OF GREAT BRITAIN AND THE UNITED STATES.

COTTON, BREADSTUFFS, PROVISIONS, ETC. Our London correspondent furnishes us an analysis of our trode with Great Britain during the first five months of the present year, compared with the corresponding period in 1865 and 1864. The figures presented to us exhibit many features of great interest at the present moment, and show how extensively our inward and outward trade with Great Britain has been augmented.

The total declared value of the exports of British and Irish produce from Great Britain to all quarters from Jan. 1 to May 31 was £78,227,710, whilst in the corresponding period last year, it amounted to odly £60,901,576 ; and in 1864 to £64,069,060 There is, therefore, an increase in the present year in this department of trade of nearly £18,000,000 as compared with 1865, and of £14,000,000 as compared with 1864 For each month the figures stand thus :

The total impor i in May was 1,490,636 bales being an increase of 880,000 bales as compared with May last year, and an increase of 500,000 bales as compared with the same month in 1864.

The export of cotton from Great Britain in May were less than in the corresponding month in 1865. This circumstance arose from the fact that a probability then existed of a Fenian 'war, the decline in the export being ehitfly as regards the Hanse Towns The total for the mouth is 268,945 cwts. ; against 3:3,864 cwts. in 1865, and 275,301 cwts. in 1864.

BREADSTUFFS. Now that war has been commenced on the Continent of Europe, and that a consid erable rise has taken place in the value of wheat in England, statistics relating to the extent of the imports of wheat and flour into Great Britain are of valuable im poplanee. The most significant fact to be drawn from the lalest statement of imports into Great Britain is the extent to wbich the export trade in wheat and four from French ports has been augmented during the present year. Russia, in the export of wheat, shows a very large increase; but, as regards tbe United States the figures are quite anim. portant. The quantity shipped from Prussian ports is small as compared with the exports from France and Russia. Our latest advices from London, Liv rpool, and the other principal markets of the United Kingdom, state that, in consequence of the fineness of the weather, the continuance of a high rate for money in the discount market, avd an inereasing importation, the wheat trade had become most inaetive; but, in cor sequence of the Continental war, holders of wheat were quite indisposed to make any concessions in prices. It appeared doubtful whether the advance in the quotations of 68. @ 8s. per quarter could be wholly maintained, there being a tendency to a lower range of values. The statement of imports into the United Kingdom is as follows: IMPORTS OF BREADSTUFFS INTO THE UNITED KINGDOM IN FIVE MONTHS.

The experts of British and Irish produce and manufactures in May show, as regards many articles, a diminution from previous years, not so much, indeed. from last year, at which period comparatively little business was then passing between the United States and Great Britain, but om 1864 and previously to that period.
