THE MARKETS. MARK-LA N E. âM 0NDAY. The demand for most kinds of produce continued inactive to day, but as regards prices the market was firmer. From Essex and Kent the receipts of wheat were limited; but the quality of the produce was rather better Factors were firm in their demands, and both red and white parcels were held at an advance of from Is. to 2s. per qr. Very few trans. actions, however, took place. Fair suppl es of foreign wheat were on sale. The business doing was restricted, but the quota- tions asked were Is. per qr. higher than on Monday last. Float- ing cargoes of wheat were dealt in to a moderate extent, at full quotations. Other articles afloat were rather quiet! With barley the market was moderately supplied. The de- mand was inactive, at previous quotations. Malt was dull on former terms. For oats there was an improved inquiry, and good sound corn was quite as dear. The show was small. Beans were in limited request, at late rates. In consequence of the large arrival of Canadian, white Peas were Is. l,er quarter lower, and other sorts were drooping in value. The flour trade was quiet, at about stationary prices. Linseed and rapeseed were tirm. Agricultural seeds were steady in price. Cakes moved off slowly. METROPOLITAN CATTLE MARKET.âMONDAY. There was a heavy arrival of foreign beasts, many uf them being of second-rate quality. Trade ruled quiet, a;id prices* on the whole, were rather easier. From our own grazing districts about an average number of beasts came forward, and we noticed some excellent arrivals on the stands. Trade was rather less active than on Monday last, and that day's quotations were with difficulty sup- ported. The top price for best Scots and crosses was 53. 4d. to 5s. Oil per From Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex, and Cambridgsliire, we received about 930 Scots, itc. from other parts of England, ^60 of various breeds from Scotland, 310 Scots and crosses: and from Ireland, about 340 oxen, &c. The number of sheep in the pcns wa, ratht r short, but the animals generally were in good condition. The demand was steady for all breeds, and really choice half-breds and Southdowns realised an occa- sional advance of 2d. per 81b., the highest quotation being 5s. Gll. to 5s. Sd. per 8b). The calf trade was steady, and prime small animals changed ha uls at full currencies. In the valne ef pigs no alteration took place, but the demand was not active HOPS. No change of importance has taken place in the markets. Fine parcels are scarce, and for such full prices are paid.
