CORN EXCHANGE REPORT.
The following is the report for the week ending Friday, April 11th, 1890: The Easter holidays have interfered considerably with business, and transactions have been limited. Wheat still continuas to go forward to London on owners account, as the prices offered by buyers are a shade below anticipated returns : the margin, however, is very small, and by no means certain, as there is always a proportion of a cargo that does not turn out we.ll, and this, brings down the average price, Oats are quiet, the only demand being for milling and seed Tartarians, the latter," true to name, and hot the. hybrid varieties frequently shown as Tartars. Barley—The market is unchanged, but few parcels of prime malting are offering, whilst of second quality anci feed there is a superabundance. Beans are coining forward freely, and the season's sample will be above average, more attention apparently being paid to threshing. Grass $eed is somewhat slacker. Potatoes, D«rwents, great difference of opinion exists as to values which will be, ruled, by the crops in-, the siste,r colonies.
