Christchurch Grain and Produce Market.

(From our own Correspondent),

Ohristchurch, June 30

The awakening of the London wheat market, and the absence of cheap freights, have checked the demand for shipping parcels, and local exporters are not now operating. On the other hand there ia a good enquiry by millers for prime bright wheat, and this description is firm, while grain that is discolored or sprouting is rather eaeier. A line of wood Hunter's and Tuscan sold at 2s 84d, 460 bushels of Hunters at 2s Bd, 2750 bushels Hunters (somewhat sprouted) at 28 Gsd, and 2000 bushels of the same variety in similar condition at 2s 6d at country stations. Oats are still offering very sparsely at prices within buyers limits. Owners generally are asking more than can be paid for shipping to the North Island. A line of Gartons has been purchased at Is 6d, nhd a small quantity of •parrowbills at same figure, at country stations. Eain and floods have caused an advance in potatoes, and £6 per ton is now being paid. Onions have advanced to £12 per ton, the supply being nearly ex hausted.
