Corn Exchange Report.

The following is the Christchurch Corn Exchange Report for the week : ending Friday, June 13th :— The market for cereals during the week has nhown no marked feature of interest, values remaining without alteration, and enquiries, except for top lines, being lew. Wheat continues to be shipped on the basis of London quotations, which, although not exactly receding, do not show any particular buoyancy, consequently no further developments of note in this line have eventuated.

Oats, if anything, are slightly weaker, and former values are Scarcely maintained.

Barley' is withoiit animation, little or no business in this line having come within our range.

Beans and Peas require no further comment than our last week's report gives for these lines.

Potatoes —A little better enquiry for Derwenta has been received during the week for immediate shipment. Several lines have changed hands from the pit, to be delivered in July and August, at slightly enhanced values, which are purely speculative. For immediate delivery no material change is noted.

Dairy Produce—Butter: for recent potting in good kegs a little more eagerness is evinced to deal, while summer-made is , scarcely looked at. Cheese: for prime loaves a slight advance on last week's quotations, may be got; other sizes as before. We quote for the week as follows: — Wheat, prune Tuscan, 3s lid; Pearl, 2s Id; Hunter's, 2s 9£d to 2s lOd. Oats, milling, Is 7d; short bright feed, Is 6d; other sorts, Is 4d to Is sd.
