Corn Exchange Report.

The following is the Corn Exchange Report for the week ending Friday, September sth:— Utter stagnation but poorly represents the state of the produce market. Never before m the colonies has such a state of things been recorded ; the cruelty of it is intensified by the nature of the produce that would have been sent away, which, consisting largely of potatoes and onions, is of a perishable nature. Whilst all having the interest of the colony at heart must regret the strike, its termination would be received with much satisfaction by the farmers and produce merchants more particularly. Wheat maintains its value, and sales at full rates are recorded. In connection with this millers have advanced the price of flour. Oats. —A few sales have taken place, but only for local use. With regard to Barley, Peas, and Beans, no transactions worth recording can be noted, and until the export trade is resumed no improvement m business is expected. Grasseed (rye).—The change m the weather will cause a renewed enquiry for sowing; stocks are m small compass. Cocksfoot maintains recent values. Potatoes. —Unless the stocks now m tfie colony are shortly placed on the Australian markets, heavy losses would seem inevitable to the growers. In fact m any case the cessation of shipment during the past fortnight must materially affect the values of all parcels not disposed of. Dairy Produce remains without any material alterations. Our quotations for the week are as follows :— Wheat—Tuscan, 3s 6d ; Pearl, 3b 4d ; Hunter's, 3s 3d. Oats—Milling, Is 7d ; short heavy feed, Is 5d to Is 6d ; long and inferior, Is 3d to Is 4d.
