Messrs Redfern, Alexander and Co. report upon the wheat market under date London, 22nd September, as. follows : —We are glad to be able to advise that since our lasi report there has been an improvement in the wheat market, especially for old foreign descriptions, which are found to be necessary for admixture with our own new crop. Unfortunately there has been too much rain lately in the north of England, where a large proportion of crop still remains in the fields, and there are some reports of sprout. In the south of England, as noted in our last report, the harvest was completed under favorable conditions as regards weather. Millers now show lather more disposition to get into stock, and there is a trilling speculative inquiry at rates in excess of those ruling ten and fourteen days since. The following are our present quotations ; Finest Australian wheat ... 46s and 46s fid F-inest long-berried New ZeaAll per 4961 b. ex granaiy here. The shipments from America during the past fouiteen days consist of 253,000 qrs. "to United Kingdom, and 405.000 qrs to the Continent. Californian shipments were 70,000 qrs to all ports. Reported visible supply of wheat 14,000,000 bushels. Best brands of Australian flour are realising 33s and 33s fid per 2Solb, with only a moderate diminished sale, English and American being comparatively cheap. Oats—lt is no longer possible to realise the fancy prices at which buyers were found for the choice qualities of New Zealand when they first appeared upon our market. This is not to be wondered at because English oats are now freely offered, and come into competition with foreign sorts, and at the same time stocks are accumulating of fine qualities from Denmark and Sweden. At yesterday’s market buyers offered for three parcels of very choice New Zealand, -in granary here, 32s for 368 II), but the bid was not accepted, although the owners were.willing to quit 'hem at 32s fid. and 335. The more tally thinner corn is not worth over 28s per 3601 b, ex store. As far as can be judged of, the of oats are not likely to improve much. Arrivals from New Zealand ports during the last fourteen days were about 5000 qrs.
