Corn Exchange Report
The following is the Corn Exchange report for week ending Friday, July 18th:— Wheat — Business in wheat has been somewhat restricted, owing in part to the breaking of the cable, and as at last advices the English market was somewhat unsettled, the interruption has occurred at an unfortunate moment. Prices have hardened, and holders decline rates lately offering, pending fresh quotations from London. Oats show no improvement in value, and sales are with difficulty effected, unless at prices that are disheartening to growers. Buyers, however, see no inducement to operate to any extent. Barley—A good enquiry for prime malting exists, but medium and feed qualities, in sympathy with oats, are almost neglected. Beans are taken .to till up space in homeward bound vessels, the local demand being almost nil. Peas—Blue Prussians are in good demand. There is but little enquiry for other descriptions. Garden varieties are offering more freely with a good demand. Ryegrass—^Farmers this season will have the opportunity of supplying their wants either from imported seed or local stocks, fckrge parcels of English grown having been recently landed. Cocksfoot —A fair business in this line has come under notice, heavy bright seed being most in favor. Potatoes—Heavy shipments still continue to be made to Sydney. If in sacks, and able te be sent down to steamer for immediate shipment, a few shillings per ton above quotations can be obtained to fill orders. Dairy Produce—No alteration in prices can be noted.
