GRAIN AND PROD UCE.
Tho Ohristohuroh Uorn Exchange Import for tho week ending Friday, August 2ad, is as fol'owe : — London oah'ea during the past w>'ek have notod a slight improvement m tho whoat market, but as wo havo no tonnage available, tho influence on this inarkot has been nil. Sill we may hope that the improvement mnyhave the effect of drawing the American immenao surplus away from out ' adjoining colonio?. Inoaliy wa havo no improvement; to noto, exospt that a few sales of Tuscan have been made at our quotations. Ttn Sydney market is still inactive, with large stocks on hand. Oooasional enquiries foe small lines ofHuntet's and Pearl occur among the local millers, but business is of a vory naeigre nature. O*U aro dull, and with the large stocks held m Melbourne we do not antioipata any improvement for some timo to come. Barley, with the exoeption of extra prime malting, is hard to quit at quotations. Beans have improved, and the bulk have been daared for London. Grass Seed has a good country enquiry for Spring sowing. Potatoes have had a bußy time, but at the time of writing aro rather quiet, awaiting the cSeot the large shipments now on the water have on the Sydney market.
