Wheat.— 'During the past week there bas been a slightly better demand for prime samples, and several sales have been effected, but none of any magnitude. Millers, to far, are the only operators, and still oontinne to purchase with eitrems oantion, and while prioes m Canterbury remain at their present level, holders ia this ma-ket are not likely to obtain an advance. Medium qaall'y, and not up to Northern oondltlon, is difficult to plaoe. Inferior and good whole fowls' wheat Is not over plentiful and has a fair demand, We quote prime milling Tusoan 4s ld to 4s 2d, red siraw and white velvet 3 j lOd to 4i, medium to good 3j 6d to 3s 9d, Inferior to medium 2s 9 i to 3i 4d (ax store).
