VCoi^tt- Excltaiigre Report.
The r following is the Corn Exchange , report ; for week ending Friday; June <■ 21sb ;—The wheat market remains iin-
altered. Prices'• during the week may have fluctuated to the extent of £d per bushel where a special order had to jbe filled,' but for samples and average lilies no increase in value can.be -''hofced;'" The arrival of. several vessels
under; charter to Messrs Stead and Cun.Jiinghani during/the-week to load will .ease the accumulation of stocks now lying ,V in Porter CNo sales can be noted of any ' magnitude in oats, and only really prime milling command any attention. Barley ■vwould appear to have been more largely : : grown this season than usual, as maltsters have laid in stocks and there are many -•" parcelsi still offering ; buyers decline ariy- -' thing but really prime lines, and most of '" the transactions now taking place are with a view to hold over ; feed, barley, in sympathy with oats, is almost unsaleable. Beans - .Though some nice bright samples are on the market, buyers are very chary, of purchasing owing to the rate of freight • r hence to London. Peas—Hand-threshed Prussian Blues are in fair demand ', feed sorts are quite neglected; a slight demand - for- wrinkled varieties for garden
purposes may be noted. Potatoes—Where orders are in hand buyers have paid full rates to secure lots before going into pit, but latest advices from the most fluctuat,of markets; (Sydney) are now re-assuring , t at the moment.,! Both farmers and • merchants.here, at! one time or another, . profited :or, lost (more especially the latter) by. the lips and down of what is often T £ermgd; ,the,." deceptive tuber "in Australian' markets.
