“There is little alteration to mold in the condition of the local money market since our last report (says the ‘ trade Review’). The usual call tor funds for gathering and moving the season's produce are now steadily being made on the banks, but there- are sntlicient funds to meet these and all other legitimate demands for capital. Our reports for the year closing on September 30 maintain an excellent, level, and the new season has made a satisfactory start. A considerable amount depends on weather miiditions tor the- next two or three months, but providing these do not prove adverse there seems every prospect of an eminently satisfactory season, bringing with it a good flow of money. "Recent figures for <iiir imports are not available at present, but we think they will probable be slightly less than hist year, and this would leave a fair credit balance on our trading. So far as can he seen at present.- the prospects for general finance are for a moderate supply of funds, snfli,dent to meet legitimate needs." N.S. WALES WOOL SALES. SYDNI •IV. November 0.
