Corn Exchange Report.

The Corn Exchange report for the week ending Friday, April 18th, is as folloAVs :—

The weather at tJie time of writing promises rain, but we have of lato had so many appearances of wet which have passed off that farmers have lost faith in the usual signs. Rain is badly Avanted, both for the pastures and what root crops there are. The markets generally have shown but slight alteration on the week. Wheat is enquired for, the tonnage available having an effect on the demand. Of the shipments going forward probably one half is on groAvers' account; farmers are inclined to sell locally and end their responsibility, but cannot in many cases bring themselves to accept the prices offering. Oats—The demand is slight and no alteration in values can be noted, farmers prefering to feed the grain in preference to selling at quotations. - Barley— The same remarks as to supply and demand noted last Aveek apply. If anything, prime malting samples are ' somewhat scarce. Peas—Prussian Blues, hand threshed, meet with a good enquiry, also Avhite peas for splitting purposes. Beans —There is a good enquiry for export, but sellers are asking more than buyers are inclined to give. Grass Seed—-But little doing in either Rye or Cocksfoot. Potatoes—A feAv sales for forward delivery have taken place. Tire crop seems to be very irregular, and it is difficult to arrive at an approximate yield. The folloAying are our quotations for the Aveek ; —
