THE MARKETS. MAJJ.K-LA.NE.—MONDAY. There has been no feature of importance In the grain trade at Mark-lane to day. A want of animation has prevailed, and prices have tteen without appreciable alteration. Very few samples of English wheat have been on offer. With a thin attendance of millers business has been limited, at about late rates. A fair show of foreign wheat has been on the stands. Transactions hitve been entirely of a retail character, and had sales been forced, lower rates must have been accepted. Barley has been scarce l'he trade has been firm, and lull rates have been realised. Malt has been disposed of at about previous currencies. The oat trade has been firm. Supplies have been short, and late prices have been well maintained. For maize the dtmand has ttill been qatet, and prices have shown no change. Beans have been firm in value, with a moderate demand. In peas sales have progressed slowly at previous quotations. Flour has been quiet at last Monday's prices. METROPOLITAN CATTLE MARKET.—MONDAY.

LONDON, Monday, June 30.—In Cloverseeds few trans- actions took place. There is rather more inqaii^ for fine white samples of CI iverseed but these are held beyond the views of the buyers.
