WEEKLY" SUMMARY. • Shipping business has been more than usually dull during the week, owing to the non-arrival of several overdue foreign vessels. The coasting trade has been of an average nature, and leaves little room for complaint as to its briskness. The weather during the ■week, has been fine throughout, attended with light aics and, calms. The only foreign arrivals of merchant ships bave been the brigantine Leonidas and the barque Constance.
