CHRISTCHURCH CORN EXCHANGE The following is the Christchurch Corn Exchange report for the week ending Friday evening, the 4th June : Business in the grain trade during trade during the week has been of the most limited description, and indeed is in a most depressed condition. Latest advices from Home regarding the wheat market are not more reassuring than formerly. The one and only grain of comfort which exists is that returns for shipments of oats to the United Kingdom are now to hand, which have netted 2s. per bushel. The quality moreover has been highly approved of, and met with ready sale, both for milling and seed purposes. It is to hoped this will give an impetus to the further exportation of this cereal. Wheat.—Seed samples are now being inquired for. Small parcels of this class are being sold at from 4s. to 4s. 6d., according to quality ; for fair milling quality fit for shipment, 3s. fid. per bushel, f. o. b. in Lyttelton, is the quotation. Chick wheat is still inlarge supply, and quotations remain unaltered. Is. 9d. to 2s. 4d. per bushel. Oats.—The recent advices from Home have caused more inquiries to be made for parcels of good heavy milling quality fit for shipment. It is reported that Is. fid. per bushel, f.0.b., has been offered for the foregoing class. Feed qualities do not, as yet, appear to have benefitted, quotations remaining as before, Is. to Is. 4d. per bushel. Barley.—The market for .this class of grain drags along a weary existence. Only parcels of undesirable malting quality are meeting with any attention, and for such very low prices are being accepted, viz., 3s. fid. to 3s. 4d. per bushel; feed and second rate quality is next to unsaleable —prices nominal. Potatoes.—A slight improvement has taken place in the market, and transactions have been more numerous. The principal sales are for forward delivery, or rather for delivery all through the season. Sales for immediate delivery have been effected at 255. to 265. at stations within a radius of 8 miles from Christchurch. For those who undertake to deliver throughout the season, and when wanted, 355. to 375. fid. is the price quoted. In all cases sacks are extra. Grass Seed.—The market remains veryflat, no sales are reported during the week. Good heavy well dressed samples, 2s. fid. to 2s. lOd. per bushel. Cocksfoot remains inactive at 2M. to 2|d. per lb. Cheese and Butter. —4d. to 4|d. for the former, and Bjd. to 9d. for the latter, with a good demand.
