»M The following is tho Corn Exchange Beport for tho week endiog Friday, March Bth, 1889 :— Considerable quantitiei of grain have been offering during the past week, and business has been done m all lines of produce. London oables point to a slight improvement m the wheat trade, and the Australian unofficial ■tatistiots point to a considerable defioienoy m the northern colonies, American valuos, however, are not influenced m any way whioh would suggest that they will be prepared to ship to any part of the world that gives any encouragement. This, with the large surplus m New Zealand, will make the Mark Lane prioes the chief faotor m ruling our looal prices. We hear that generally the yields are very satisfactory. Oats are offering rather slow, but our outside demands are light Con* siderable sales of barley have been made at satißfaotory rateß ; buyers are still operating largely. Freights to London are easier, 80s being freely offered to shippers. WnitAT— Prime Tuscan iB selling at 8s 5d to 8a 6d with fair demand ; pearl and hunters from 8s 8d to 8s 4d, Beoond quality dull at Bs, broken, little offering at 2a 4d to 2s Gd. Oats— Milling have a quiet market at 2s 8d to 2a id ; short feed, 2s 2d to 2s 3d ; tartars (pure) are enquired for from Australia for seed purposes. Peas— Good demand for Prussian blues at 8s 4d to 8s 6d ; feed, good enquiry at 8a to 3s 2d. Bkaks are not offering.
