The new ‘ Board of Trade Journal,’ amongst other valuable matter, centains a report from Mr Thornton, of the British Legation in Copenhagen, which gives a remarkable account of the magnitude cf the egg trade of Denmark with the United Kingdom, and which (Mr Thornton siys) “must excite a painful astonishment in the breast of the English poultry farmer.” In 1867 the export of eggs from Denmark was 45,000»c0re, valued at LI,800; in 1877 it was 944,000 score, valued at L 51.385; in 1887 it had r i,en to 5,546,7-5 score, valued at L 262 514. Of this latter enormous quantity nine-tenths were sent to Britain. The trade is a recent one in Denmark, and is capable of increased development. “As a matter' of fact, in Jutland alone, which has hitherto, in spite of the superiority in size over the other provinces of the kingdom, remained rather in the background, an enormous extension in the production of eggs is confidently looked for.”
