Corn Exchange Report.
The following is the Corn Exchange report for the week ending Friday, July 11th, 1890 :■-- Cable advices from England are somewhat conflicting as to the wheat market, though there would appear to have been a slight rise m the values. The local market has not been affected, and prices are unchanged. Oats are being offered more freely, farmers having apparently given up hopes of seeing any material improvement m value, m the face of the large stocks down south: m some cases growers are accepting a shade under quotations to effect a sale. Barley.—No alteration can be noted m this cereal. Beans have seen a fair business for good samples. Peas.-r-Boilers have the usual demand, whilst feed sorts are totally neglected. Ryegrass.—The market here will be supplied largely by imported seed, stocks of locally grown being smaller than has been known for years ; prices will doubtless rule high. Cocksfoot is also • within narrow compass, and enquiries with the near approach of Spring sowing ac numerous, both for prime heavy and lower grade parcels. Potatoes. - Heavy shipments have gone forward to the Australian market during the week, and some anxiety is felt as tb the returns. Growers here are inclined to make sales for future delivery, disliking the prospects of the markee. Dairy Produce. —Few transactions have come under notice, and prices paid can hardly prove remunerative.
