The f ollowmg is the Corn Exchange Report for the week ending Friday, April 4th:—? The weather during the past week has been very variable, but most favorable tq those whose grass had gone off, and whose root crops were much in need of moisture. Should frosts hold off, our graziers will have much better prospects of winter feed than at ojje tjme seemed likely.
