THE MARKETS. -c, MARK-LANE.âMONDAY. both^rom mf^-et t°"da>' the receipts of English wheat not rl an<* kent were but moderate. There was nlP« Vh sughtest improvement in the condition of the sam- (iii'ft i of t^e supply on the stands being of very damp quality. From this cause millers showed no disposition to operate, and the trade, therefore, was very slow. The small °f good and fine produce on oiler was disposed of at the full prices of Monday last; but damp qualities were very unsaleable, a large proportion being left unsold at the close of the market. The supply of foreign wheat on sale was moderately good. In most descriptions a fair business was transacted, and prices ruled firm. Heating cargoes of grain were in full average request at full quotations. With barley the market was moderately supplied. The trade for all quali- ties was very quiet, yet no material change took place in prices from Monday last. The demand for malt was in a sluggish state, at late rates. The supply of oats on sale was but moderate. The trade, nevertheless, was by no means active, and the prices of Monday last were steadily supported The supply of beans on sale was only moderate. The trade was steady at previous quotations. Foreign, more especially Canadian, peas being ottered freely, the demand, generally, ruled inactive, at about late rates. Owing to the laro-p nV rival of English qualities the flour trade was in a shiWioii state at about previous quotations. °° METROPOLITAN CATTLE MARK EX.
