The Chicago wheat market was demoralised to-day, May wheat slumping to 1 dollar 26 cents and July to 1 dollar 14 cents, until 15 minutes before the close, when Mr. Patten furiously bought 3,000,000 bushels. May wheat subsequently recovered to 1 dollar 27A cents, and July to 1 dollar 153 cents. Enormous business was transacted. STRONG MARKET IN LONDON. (Received 8.30 a.m.) LONDON, April 16.
