THE CROPS AND THE CORN TRADE. The Mark-Lane Express says :-The light soils have been benefited by the recent rains, which have also favoured the de- velopment of winter and spring-sown cereals Grass, too, has made a fresh start, after remaining nearly stationary for two or three weeks, and the pastures are beginning to furnish a more nourishing bite for cattle. Some damage his been done to the fruit trees by the recent east winds, especially in the southern counties, but the injury has not been so general as was anticipated. Scotland has been visited by some heavy snow- storms, which have checked spring-sowing in the north; but this operation has fortunately been brought to a close in the central and southern districts, where farmers have been busy preparing the turnip land and planting potatoes. The winter- sown wheat crop looks well, and the plant has recently thick- ened considerably, tillering having taken place early and well, especially on the high-formed land of the Home Counties. The trade has been steady. There has been a steady retail demand, at prices which, if not quite equal to those of the previous Mon- day, were somewhat better than those obtainable on the pre- ceding Friday business was, however, limited.
