The following ia the Corn Exchange report for the wook ending Friday, December 2l B t, 1888 :—

The past week has been an osoeptionally quiet one m the grain and produoo markets, orders from Australia have almost oeased but shippers have been busy getting away completed purohasoa. The Wakatipu takes a full oargp, from the south, the liindua ia now a full vossol from here to Sydney, and the Tekupo is on berth for that port and Nowonstlo, besides whioh tho Fenpont is Qhartored to load at onoe for the latter port. The rain being so goneral m the whole of Australia is buto to have an inQuonoing effect on prioes horo for the time ' boing, but the hoavy shipments now on hand are so daoresfling our local stool™ that we fear little but that good prices will bo maintained. Aocounts from the country districts are very contradictory, but wo gather from tho moat reliable information than with a oontinuanoe of favorable woather wo shall have an abundant harvest. Owing to the late spring the work of sowing is sure to bo late so wo may be caught wilh bad weather and thus sustain damage

Wheat ,—Prioos are not bo firm, but holders deolino at presentJtoJacoGpf; any relate ; business, thorefore is almost at a standstill.

Largo quantities aro being loaded for Sydney whore tboy have been sold to arrive. Short heavy food wo quote at 3s Gd, and long and inforior grades at 3d loss. Barley nominally 4s 2d to 4a 4d for prime malting; 2s 6d to 3s for feed. Beans and Peas have had somo little enquiry, but thoy aro m limitod quantitios, and holders demand Bs Od to 8s 8d for boans ; and 3s 3d to 3s 0:1 for peas. Giuss Seed. — Farmors paroolo have a fair demand at 2s 3d to 2s Od ; and merchants quote 3s Cd for tho best maobine dressed samples. Oooksfoot is quiet, best samples only commanding 3d. Daiiiy Pboddoe.— Butter has. droppoJ to Od for tho very best, and Gd to 8d for seoond quality, whilo paßtry is dull at . £d ; ohoeso is quiet with only a looal trade onquiiy at 3Jd to 4d.
