THE CHRISTCHURCH CORN EXCHANGE. The following is the report of the Christchurch Corn Exchange for the week ending Friday evening, the 12tli instant : Tho week that has passed has been but a prototype of its predecessor ; the same apathy prevailing that was its characteristic. Grain, notably wheat, continues to arrive in largo quantities, nearly the whole of which is being shipped for England. The large quantity which will this year be placed on the London market, and the quality being good, will do much towards raising the standard of New Zealand wheat. The values remain unchanged. Fine weather continues to prevail. Wheat—Good milling samples are readily saleable at 45., delivered in Christchurch. Good seconds will command 3s. 6d ; chick wheat, 3s. to 3s. 3d. Barley—Several parcels are now coming to hand. Business is being done at from 3s. 6d. to 3s. 9d. per bushel for good malting qualities ; inferior and feed parcels are by no means saleable. Oats—The bulk of the yield is being held back. Sales are taking place at from Is. 4d. to Is. 6d. per bushel, the market being dull. Grass seed—Grass seed is not much inquired for ; large stocks on hand, with but few purchasers. A few sales are affected at from 2a. Od. to 2s. 9d. per bushel. Potatoes —Potatoes are being inquired for, but very low prices are offered. No sales of any importance have taken place; it is therefore premature to name a price. Cheese and butter—For the former SJ. to Sid., with a moderate demand ; 7d. to 7£d."for the latter, with a better inquiry. [by TELEGRAPH.] Dunedin, March 12. Prime fat beef, 225.
