REVIEW OF THE BRITISH CORN TRADE. (From the Mark Lane Express.) We have had a continuance of wintry weather, -with,- some intensity of frost, and the like is reported in France-* and the northern parts of Europe. It has, however, been everywhere welcomed as giving a salutary check to the-- young corn, and swelling fruit buds, and enabling farmers, to get on with their carting, and other work. Holders of wheat hopeful that the hard weather would last long enough to bring an increased inquiry for foreign stocks, but Friday gave indications that it would not. We have, however, only got through one-third of the winter yet, I and we may have a few more sharp visits before the season.. has passed. There has been no decided improvement in the corn trade, and no quotable decline; but the week: closed very heavily in London, with a certain downward, tendency. Again we note a serious falling off in the Enga, lish deliveries, as compared with last year, say 18,378 qrs., which. must result either from shortened stocks or determination to wait; and as five months of the cereaL year have now passed, leaving still seven months to fill up, these seven, if furnished in the same scanty way, must, throw an increased demand upon the present surplus, granary stocks, and so help to dimini&h them. With an.. average price 10s. below the usual annual rate, well-to-do-C farmers, who are now the principal holders of English, may very reasonably expect some improvement; and aar they have no granary rent to pay, with an almost certainty that their samples will improve in condition and be more wanted by millers, they stand on a vantage ground not occupied by holders of foreign. In France, Belgium, and. some parts of Northern Germany, prices have somewhat, improved, but at Dantzic they have cheapened for inferior quality wheat, of which the bulk mainly consists. Should the frost only hold on for a month it would certainly give a tone to the markets, and with our own crop yet in its, infancy we are by no means sure either of an early of abundant harvest. What seems most against prices is the accumulation of stock in New York, the lake ports and., Montreal, as also at Odessa. The sales of English wheat noted last week were 58,4 qrs. at 43s. 6d., against 76,870 qrs. at 52s. 4d. in 1869. The imports into the kingdom for the week ending 20th. Jan. were 1,338,774 cwts. wheat, and 227,434 cwts. flour.
