CHRISTCHURCH CORN EXCHANGE. The following is the report of Christchurch Corn Exchange for the week ending Friday evening, the 30th inst.:— A slightly improved tone has been imported into the grain trade during the past week. Yalues have slightly improved, and the demand is brisker. The effect of this spurt has been to give holders more exalted views as to values and the business which would otherwise have been done has been checked. As has been previously pointed out, any material advance in prices will check the demand. Wheat.—Large lines, suitable for shipment, of good sound milling quality will find buyers at 3s. lOd. to 3s. llid., f.0.b.; similar quality, in Christchurch, 3s. lOd. to 3s. lid. Seed samples, 4s. 3d. to 4s. 6d. per bushel; second class milling quality, 3s. to 3s. 2d. ; chick wheat, Is. 9d. to 2s. 4d. Oats.—The demand still continues good, but business is being checked by holders seeking to obtain an advance on recent market quotations. Good plump milling quality is being enquired for, and business is being transacted at from Is. 6|-d. to Is. Bd. f.0.b.; feed parcels are hardly so saleable, but still are moving into consumption at from Is. 3gd. to Is. sd. per bushel; inferior feed quality j Is. to Is. 2d. per bushel. .. Barley.—First class malting samples are being inquired for and continue to command from 3s. to 3s. 3d. per bushel. Second rate quality is plentiful, with a very slack demand, at from 2s. 3d. to 2s. fid.; feed quality, Is. fid. to Is. Bd. Potatoes.—The demand for the tuber continues to be fairly good, but prices are not improved. At the prices offered, farmers are unwilling to do business, but exporters cannot afford to increase their offers. 225. fid. to 255. per ton are the prices going, sacks extra. Cheese and Butter.—4d. to 4Jd. for the former, 9d. to 9|d. for the latter. Hay.—sos to 555., delivered in town.
