LONDON PRODUCE MARKETS. MINCING LANE, TUESDAY. In the Colonial Produce Markets but few transactions have taken place, but undiminished strength, in current values, is maintained in nearly every department. TEA.—Not much business passing, pending the public sales announced for Friday. Scarcely anything is doing at the moment, and no effect from the China news is per- ceptible. SUGAR.—Refined descriptions meet a more frequent in- quiry, but the market is still inactive. In raw sugar the transactions are equally unimportant. COFFEE is firm in value, with a limited business passing. COCOA.-Colonial descriptions bring full prices for small parcels to fill up immediate orders. SPIRITS.—Brandy remains as last quoted, the modifications in the new scale of duties having had no effect. RICE is firmly held, and offers of former prices are in many cases refused. Arracan sold at 8s 9d, and Ballam, 10s. SALTPETRE.—300 bags 10J per cent. have sold at 38s per cv. t. J tJTE continues to engage attention, and further business is reported \both on the spot and to arrive) at firm prices, but the full particulars have not transpired. OILS.—Linseed remains quoted 27s. 6d. Rape is very firmly held, and for French refined 41s 6d is reported to have been paid. TALLOW.—The market continues firm. On the spot the price is quoted 60s to 60s 3d; April to June, 56s; and last three months, 538 per cwt.
