Oats—Oats continue to maet with fair demand at slightly easier rates. The bulk now offering is slightly discoloured with the weather, but merchants are ready buyers at to-day's quotations, which are: Gartons, Canadians, and Duns 1b 6d to Is 7d, Danish Is 4>d to Is 4i&, Sparrowbills and Rosfiberrys Is 5d to Is 5JdO.S. Chaff—There is a slightly better demand for prime Quality at 52s 6d to .r >3s, on trucks.
