REVIEW OF THE CORN TRADE. The great improvement in the weather which commenced the day before Good Friday and gave us a unique record of holi- day traffic has not yet been of sufficient con- tinuance to dry the surface soil or to enable clay and other heavy lands to be ploughed, sown, rolled, or otherwise cultivated. Weeds are growing very fast, as they like nothing so much as sunshine on saturated surface soil. The expectation is that nothing will now be added to the wheat area, and but little to that of barley, while even oats may cede a certain area to potatoes. Some corn land will prob- ably go into grass. The wheat gradient this week is between' Leeds and Salisbury, but no market is now below 30s. Leeds, 33s. 4d. Salisbury, 30s. 4d.; range, 3s. The barley gradient is between Burton-a market not often lacking in malting quality. and Banbury, where only the lowest grade of feeding corn appears of late to have been on offer: Burton, 27s. lOd.; Banbury, 22s. 6d.; range, 5s. 4d. Oats are fetching over a sovereign as an average price in a few Midland counties. On the other hand, they are a depressed market in East Anglia: Northampton, 20s. 6d. Cam- bridge, 17s. 2d.; range, 3s. 4d. -Mark Lane Express.
