THE WEATHER AND THE CROPS. There have been showrers and, in some instances, heavy rains during the past week, but on the whole the weather has been fine, and dry temper- ature normal. There are wheat fields not yet in ear, and a very considerable acreage of spring corn remains in a backward condition, apparently stunted beyond the possibility of a crop of straw, or of an average crop of grain. There is now no prospect of an abundant harvest. The deliveries of native wheat are now so restricted at market after market that there can be no doubt that the crop of 1880 is very small. The few samples on offer have realised Is to 2s per qr. advance during 1 the week in several provincial exchanges and in J London on Friday Is improvement on Monday's rates was in some cases refused. English flour is J moderate supply, and brings in 6d to Is per sack more now. There is nothing like animation J in trade, which is carried on within the smallest practical limits. Trade for barley is quite nominal, and the scarcity of grmdmg sampls keeps prices firm. Malt is unchanged. There is a better feel- ing in the oat trade, and values at the close of the week were firm. A shade higher for beans and peas, with a slow steady trade.âLane 1 Express.
