I haven't yet seen any mention of her outgoing cargoes, but The Liverpool Mercury has lovely detailed listings of her incoming ones - mostly consigned to Yates, but small portions to other merchants too.
There are the obvious ones - sugar and rum - but she also brought arrow-root, tamarinds, coffee, succades, coker nuts and (sadly), wood (logwood, lancawood spars and mahogany). [The Age of Sail was responsible for the intensive deforestation of great swaths!! of this planet.]
Would you like me to copy out a few of the incoming cargoes for you? The master was Lawrence up to 22 May, 1835 and from 29 May, 1835 the master was Farrell.

Does anyone happen to know what the ship BRILLIANT was transporting to
Jamaica from Liverpool between 1835 and 1838?
This particular ship (there are other ships named BRILLIANT) sailed to
Jamaica on Nov 13th 1835 and Sept 13th 1837 and also on Oct 1837. (Thank
you to lister who provided this information)
She was owned by J.B.YATES at that time. Later, in 1838, she was
transferred to R.KIRKS and J.TODD.
Does tobacco seem a likely possibility? Where could I find a picture of a
similar ship? What was the principal trade between Jamaica and England
this period? Where can I find more details about the sailings of this
vessel during this time period? Where can I find records for this ship and
Thank you for any tips or help you can give me, Robyn
