THE BRITISH GbBN TRADE.

THE BRITISH GbBN TRADE. The past week and the close of the previous have brought us large quantities of rain but we hear of no such floods as in France, or of such disasters from this cause as have emphasised the advices from Italy. A wet time is considered well for wheat-planting after good tillage, so everything for the future of this country looks cheerful. 'The young plants up are healthy and strong, and a generally fine growth will no doubt be presented to face the ordinary severities of winter. But with terrific earthquakes and floods abroad, and some such signs in Ireland, we are cautioned not to be over-confident. The revolution in Spain, that once looked so threatening, as yet turns cut of so moral and healthful a character that it has the aspect of a blessing after a bad harvest, as there seems no doubt the rulers, de facto, will consider it imperative upon them to provide food and labour for the people. Thus so scenes of strife and bloodshed, which might have sprung out of present distress, may be effectually prevented, and shipments made to every part of the Spanish coast without fear. The past week records a more healthy tone as regards the wheat trade, an Irish demand agaia coming to our help both in London and off the coast. Marianopoli wheat having sold for this destination at full rates, with barley, beans, and peas bringing the same prices as wheat, and oats relatively as dear, they must be nervous indeed who force off their exceptionally fine stores of the leading grain under the apprehension of much further decline. Be it ever remembered that the admitted surplus amount does no more than place our stocks on the average scale of past years, and occasional famines are not so scarce as to warrant a thoughtless dependence on an annual growth. To distrust Providence we know is bad. but to tempt it would seem worse so let us seek to fall into that groove called the happy medium." The late dull ad vices from London have continued to exercise some influence on Europe, but only moderately so, and though New York is irregular, and lower for the prices of flour, a speculation has sprung up for Spring wheat, which has caused a rise of 3 to 5 cents, per bushel.— M&Tk-lane JSxjsress, I
