Corn Exchange Report.

The following is the Corn Exchange report for the week ending Friday, August Bth:— There has been a fair amount of business done during the week. An unsettled feeling, however, prevails, owing to the labor manifesto ; and should this uneasiness continue, sales may be difficult to effect. Wheat is m good demand, and prices are firm ab quotations. Oats.—Samples of prime, fit for export to the London market, are saleable, whilst little or no business is passing m other grades. Barley.—No malting samples on offer; feed descriptions totally neglected. Beans.—A slight enquiry continues for export. Peas.—Blue Prussians still hold their own m value, whilst feed descriptions are difficult to quit. Grass Seed.—Ryegraas is held principally by merchants. Any parcels offering have been taken ab full rates. The market closes firm. Cocksfoot.—The same remarks apply. Colonial grown clover.— Several parcels have been brought m daring the week. "Buyers are at the moment offering a shade under growera' alues. The quality, as compared wilh the imported seed, is good ; it is free from the impurities which many of the parcels of imported seed only too often contain. Potatoes.—The prospects are not at the moment cheering, Sydney advices being unsatisfactory. Dairy Produce.—Few transactions, as is usual at this season, can be noted.
