Corn Exchange Report.

Corn Exchange report for week ending Friday, July 4th :— Since last writing the weather has been cold with hard frosts. Nothing like the usual rainfall has been recorded, and farmers still want a thoroughly soaking rain. Wheat remains at last quotations, at which figure several large transactions for export have taken place, small lines are taken by local millers principally. i Oats are difficult to move ; at present | prices it can hardly fail to prove *i re-; munerative business to buy with the view of holding over, and several transactions have come under notice with this object. Barley.—A few parcels of prime have changed hands, but medium and feed quantities are entirely neglected. Beans are taken for export where the sample is bright and not too much broken. Peas.—During the week a very fair enquiry has been manifestad both for feed and hand threshed Prussian blues, consequently stocks have been somewhat reduced. Grass Seed.—The enquiry noted for Ryegrass last week still continues, and the same remark applies to Cocksfoot. Potatoes.—This tuber has seen fair sales where immediate delivery could be given. There are large stocks, and growers would do well to consider this when deciding on what to do with their crop. There is a good enquiry for early potatoes, (round) for seed purposes.
