There :«, therefore, not much business to report. The market, remains firm for all lots of ruims Gar tons and Sparrowbills These are chiefly token for shipment, while lower grades meet a fair local demand. We emote: Prirnt; nulling-. 2,-j 9d to 2 B lOd ; good to best- feed. 2s 6:1 to 2s 8d; inferior to medium. 2s to 2* 5d per bushel (sacks extra). Wheat.—Our stocks are exhausted, and we have therefore no business to report.
Potatoes.—Consignments havo slackened to some extent, and the market i.=... not now so heavily -supplied. Prime freshlypicked lots mevt with good inquiry, but those in poor condition are not in request. WV quote: Best table potatoes, £5 15s to £6; others. £3 to £4 10s per ton (sacks included). Chaff.—There is a keen demand for prime chaff, both for shipping and local consumption The market at present is. barely supplied, and any consignment* of trood prime quality meet a strong market and ready sale. \V« quote: Prime oaten sheaf. £4 15s to £4 17s 6d ; choice black oat, to £5; medium tu good. £4 to £4 10.-: light and discolored. £5 10s to £5 15s per ton (sacks extra).
Messrs Dalgety and Co.. Ltd.. report as fellows: -- Oats.—The market remains firm, but there is no volume of business passing, as the quantity offering from the country is small.

'2s 6d to 2s Sri; medium to good, 2s 4d to 2s 6d per bushel (sacks extra).
Wheat.—ln the absence of supplies business in this cereal is at a standstill. The only business passing has been in small lots of fowl feed of very inferior quality, and it is difficult for us to state values. Potatoes.—Consignments of old. potatoes have been light, especially choice freshly-picked tables, which have been meeting with a good demand at au advance on late values. Xow potatoes, however, are arriving mors freely, and th« demand for old potatoes will slaoken off aa th» ntw on** oocom* mor* plentiful. Wa quota: Choica freshly-picked potatoes, £5 to £6 per ton; medium to good, £3 10a to £4 10g per ton (sacks in).
