Grey River Argus Office, nw-Tnukuii vi mveiflxd"lJueiVH{X''«tl)' 'lag o astoms on goods passed for home consumption to-day was £81 13a 2d.

Mklboubnk. —The Argus of the 9fch inst says :— , . Business in the import markets harf been exceedingly quiet throughout the day, and neither publicly nor privately, have any transactions of importance come before us; r 'ln breadstuff* there ia no improvement to refer to. JFlouris simply unsaleable save in the rao3t trifling bakers' parcels, . and for the supply of pressing wants only ;%e- quote Ll5 io Ll5 ss. Wheat is likewise very dull, though moved off with' 1 much less difficulty than flour. A shipment of 500 bags Adelaide, wheat was cleared off at 6s 2d to 6s Sd'in parcels. We also hear of the isale of a very prime parcel of New Zealand— l2oo bushels — a good- Barople— at 3s 6d. Sales of maize continue to be effected at up to 4s 3d. Sugars are moving somewhat slowly ; ther> does not appear to be much interest taken : in the market at present. Good white crystals have been quitted at L 37 to L 37 JOa. Under the hamper some 1600 bags Mauritius ra- | tions were got ; rid of this forenoon at L 22 10s to L 24. In teas, we note the disposal of the damaged portion of the Rachel's and Vision's cargoes of new season's congous at prices rangng from 12.^1 to 2s per lb net*. Candles have, met with # b,etter inquiry, but the sales effected have hotbeen of muoh extent; a few parcels liayjas found buyers at lid for best brands.} The market has of late been very barely supplied with quicksilver, and the price in consequence has risen to an extreme figure; we obser^ci however, that the California mail steamer, lately arrived, has brought forward for this port 300 bottles, and we further learn that arrangements have been entered into to keep upa regular supply in f nture. In liquids; we note an iuqniry for Hehnessy's case brandy at 26s 3d to 2(js Cd, according to quantify. :
