The following i> >:•* Uorn Exchange report fer tbe week < ding Friday, May 34th :- Markets all round are easier. The demand from Sydney side is not equal to the quantities offering, but shortly we expect to see this reversed as the deliveries are fast falling off, and bur wheat finds more favour m the Australian market duriug the colder weather.

There are buyers of dairy produce for the London market at 3j£d for cheese, and 7d for butter, local demand is limited. Shipping space is plentiful for London and to Sydney it is now more easily obtainable; large portions of it, however, areheii g taken for potatoes, so that the grain will not be got away any faster than heretofore.
