CORN EXCHANGE

The following is the Corn Exchange report for the week ending Friday, February 15tb, 1889 :— With favorable weather the harvest operations are being pushed on with rapidity. Tbe principal part of the oats are already harvested, and farmers are now busy with the wheat ; a good deal has been thrashed out of the stook, and judg. ing from the samplers reports serious errors m many instances have been committed. Wheat coming to hand is m anything but prime condition, indeed some experienced farmers maintain that unless we have nor'west weather, the grain will not be fit to thrash for the next six weeks or two months, the dull dewy weather together with the gross undergrowth retaining the moisture for such a considerable time.

Wheat— As yet, but few sales of new grain have been effected, apd prioes have as yet not been cleaily defined. Sellers ask 3a 6d to 3s Bd, while buyers are not prepared to advance over 3s 4d to 3s 6d for prime milliug. Fowls wheat varies from 2s 6d to 3s, according to quality.
