CHRISTCHURCH CORN EXCHANGE
The following is the report of the Corn Exchange for the week ending Friday, the 7th instant : The tone of the market has in no way altered since last week’s report. Advices from Home continue to report the wheat market languid. Buyers are not purchasing so freely ; prices, however, cannot be said to have receded. Produce of all descriptions is being offered in large quantities, but buyers are reticent. Wheat—Largo lines in good quality and in good condition, fit for shipment, will find buyers at 3s. 6d. f.o.b. Seed parcels of particular kinds are being inquired for, and will realise 3s. lOd. to 4s. in Christchurch. Chick wheat is in large supply, with rather a sluggish demand. For really good quality of this description sales have been effected at 2s. 10i. ; the market, however, is weaker, and may be quoted at 2s. Bd. to 2s. 9d. per bushel; medium and inferior quality, 2s. to 2s. 4d. Oats—The market this week is hardly so good as it was for buyers, the utmost obtainable for good milling quality being Is. 3d. to Is.-Id. per bushel. Feed parcels in large lines are going at Is. 2d. to Is. 2id., according to sample. Barley—Sales are difficult to effect, only prime samples are moving off, at prices ranging from 3s. 6d. to 3s 9d. per bushel ; fair medium samples are offered from 3s. sd. to 3s. 9d. per bushel, with hardly any inquiry.
Grass seed is very slow of sale, only the best samples meeting with any attention, at prices varying from 2s. 6d. to 2s. 9d. Cocksfoot, 2Jd. to per lb. Potatoes are still slow of sale, with very low prices offering, 275. Gd. per ton at country stations being about the money to be obtained, sacks extra. Cheese and Butter—4d. to 4id. for the former ; BAd to 9d for the latter.
