Corn Exchange Report.
+_ — - —— i The following is the Corn Exchange Report for the week ending August / 29th :— Trade is entirely paralyzed by the strike on the intercolonial steamers, and prices are purely nominal. The freight question absorbs the universal attention of those m the trade, and even when ordinary relations are again restored, there will probably be such a glut m the Australian market that prices may not recover for some time. The only cereal that has not suffered proportionately is wheat, and this is owing to the strike not having interfered with homeward bound vessels. Sales of wheat have been made at prices quoted. Last week s quotations are repeated (except as to wheat and potatoes), as under the circumstances it is impossible to give more reliable information, and even the figures given are only nominal. Our quotations for the week are as follows :—Wheat—Tuscan, 3s 5d to 3s 6d ; Pearl, 3s 3d to 3b 4d ; Hunter's, 3s 2d to 3s 3d. Oats—Milling, Is 7d ; short heavy feed, Is 5d to Is 6d ; long and inferior, Is 3d to Is 4d. Barley—Prime malting, 3s 3d ; feed, Is 6d to Is 9d. Beans, 2s 6d. Peas—Prussian Blues, 3s to 3s 6d ; feed, 2s 4d to 2s 6d. Ryegrass — Machine dressed, ss. Cocksfoot — Bright heavy seed, 4jd to 4£d ; Potatoes —Derwents, 40s to 48s 6d at country stations.
