“Guardian” Office, Friday afternoon. Very little business of any bind has been done in any of the markets during the past week, owing to the holidays. The values of wheat have in no way altered since onr last quotation, though it is feared a slight downward tendency will soon result, owing to the recent fall in the Home markets. The weather has been all that could be desired for farming operations at this r season of the year. A few more showers of rain would, however, be beneficial to the crops, and if followed by genial sunshine, we may reasonably expect better farming returns than have been the case for some time. Shearing has now commenced in several sheds, and the clip is reported to be of excellent quality, owing, no doubt, to the mild winter just passed. Wool is beginning to come forward in email lots, but prices have, as yet, not teen definitely arranged on market scales on farmers’ clips sold in stores.
