Corn Exchange Report.

The following is the Corn Exchange Report for week ending Friday, April 25thThere is but little change to report on the markets for the week. Considerable shipments of wheat are going forward to U. K. and, though latest advices are somewhat conflicting, a slight, rise would appear to have taken, place in London. Wheat is in slightly better' demand, though prices have , not advanced appreciably. Long-berried is most inquired for. Oats—Farmers decline to sell at present prices, and |» ..i".;\'r.' cannot see any reason to make b< i".( •■ ■■:!■: ■ in the face of no outside enquiry. Seed— Tartars may be noted as an exception to the general dull demand, whilst really inferior sorts arealmost unsaleable. Barley—Maltsters decline to purchase medium quality, and there is consequently considerable difference of opinion as to the value .of most of thg parcels offering, which do hot'*come "up to malting standard. Beans —As the only outlet is the London market, buyers base their offers on the present • value there, which will not admit of an increase in! quotations. Peas —The usual demand for the Sydney market for Prussian Blues continues. Grass Seed,'.bemg the off season, but little enquiry can be noted. The high prifcfl ruling for Rye Grass Seed have caused supplies to be supplemented from, outside sources. Cocksfoot, if really prime heavy jsoed, issaleable at full rates. Potatoes are somewhat easier, the, 'speculative' spurt shown* in some quarters last week havilig somewhat abated. Dairy Produce—Prices' (except for fresh butter) remain unaltered, whilst factory made commands the top price in our retail shops. It does not appear to stand " keeping" or at .-any the voyage home, if one may judge by the results of the shipments made by a local factory, which have lately been made public.
