Corn Exchange Report.

The following is the Cortr*Exch?uifee'rep'ortfor week ending Friday^ March S), :; 1890:—The question of receipts being given for grain -store in the ; x sheds at Lyttelton is likely to be brought. ;.> : before the Commissioners. There; is mo ;

doubt that if! such receipts were given it would be a great convenience vto*»both t sellers and buyers. For all round lines of wheat there is a good enquiry, as purchasers are chiefly for, export to United Kingdom. Long berried is most in demand. Grain is .still arriving in large t quantities and storage capacity is being taxed to the utmost. Oats are still without enquiry. Growers seem to realise, that it .is aqyis-

able to sell some at any rate of their stocks "- but are very reluctant to "accept prices now offering. Barley—No improvement can. be noted , and unless intercolonial" orders come to hand, it is diffiult to'^see \ what can cause an enquiry." Beans and Peas, last week's remarks apply. Potatoes —As anticipated last week some deliveries are turning' otit' in bad condition owing to the effects of frost. The , market is slightly weaker in consequence .of the lower prices ( , ruling. in f Sydney. Dairy, Produce—A good' enquiryiot |mine potted butter in Sydney shapecTkegsmay be noted.
