GRAIN AND SEED REPORT.
Messrs. Samuel Orb and Co., Stafford street, report for the week ending September 7, as follows :-Wheat : Our market for this cereal is in much about the same state as last week, sales being few as millers will only buy for actual nquiremenis, their stocks bein-' if anj thing more th.n they usually ca.e to carry at this season of the year 1 heir sales are also decreasing, as prices have been reduced by Northern miller*, co that to compete with them they are obliged to lower their limits for flour. We quote :-For extra prime red straw, up to 4s 2,1 ; Tuscan and velvet, 4s Hi ; ordinary, 3s 8d to 3s lOd ; inferior and fowls' feed, 3s 3d to 33 6d.-Oats : The demand reported last week still continues, but prices are unaltered, though we not be the least suprised to see them receding still further, as reports from both Melbourne and Sydney markets are discouraging. The grass there is luxuriant for this season of the year, and in the course of a few weeks they will be getting in their hay crop, which is, of course, the primary cause of the dull state of these markets. Should present prices not be maintained, there is decidedly an opening fur us to send Home this cereal, late shipments to there having proved fairly remunerative. We quote prime bright heavy milling up to Is BAd, though for a parcel of heavy Canadians we obtained a shade more • ordinary milling, Is 8d ; good heavy feed, Is 7d to Is 8d ; medium Is 6d to Is 7d ; discoloured, Is 3d to Is 6d, and difficult ro sell- Barley : ihere is really none offering, so that prices are nominalsay, malting, up to 4s 3d ; milling and feed, 3s to 4s.— Chaff : The market is decidedly easier since last week, as arrivals have been larger and parcels at auction pushed off at low prices to quit and save storing, consequently prices are 2s 6d a ton lower.- Potatoes : Our outside markets are closed, so that prices are somewhat easier, while the new crop is looking well both in the North and in Melbourne — beeds.— Kyegrass : Sales continue to be made on basis of late quotations, but the run is on old pasture seed, and that principally from Poverty Bay. Cocksfoot : This seed is in great demand this season, and as stocks North and here are comparatively low, a further advance may be expected very shortly. Clovers are in good demand, prices co far being unchanged.

" Ruchu-Paiba."— Quick, complete cure all annoying Kidney tßladder, and Urinary Diseases. At chemists and druggists. Kemp borne, Prosser and Co., agents, Dunedin. The thirty gold and thirty silver medals struck, according to annual custom for the Sovereign Pontiff for the Festival of St. Peter and St. Paul, bore this year, besides the Papal arms, a design repiesenting the Mediation on the Carolines question. " L'Arbitraggio delle Caroline," is inscribed round three figures symbolising Germany, Spain, and Holy Church between the two. The Orangemen paraded in lilies and scarfs in many cities on the 12th of July. Jn America no one paid the least attention to them, except to wonder at the virulent nature that could find gratification in keeping open an old bitter wound. If a post of the G.A.R., in Richmond, were to insist on a yearly celebration of the surrender of Lee, with exulting and insulting mottoes for Southern eyes and derisive music for Southern ears, the endurance of the citizens of the South wculd deserve praise. This, and vastly worse, is what the Orangemen do. There is no reason for their existence to celebrate a battle, of 200 years ago, except the vile one of engendering and fostering hatred. They are the symptoms of a poli'ical disease born of poison, and living through corruption. Nothing can win them, for they arc ignorant men ; and ignorance is the real curse of the Altniyhty. They are like the malaria and other foul diseases that we caunot get ml of, acd must be prepared for. But their future is not a promising nor a pleasant one.
