THE MARKETS. MARK-LANE, MONDAT. The arrivals of English wheat fresh up to our market to-day were very moderate. The condition of the produce exhibited a decided improvement from last week, yet the trade both for red and white samples ruled far from active. Factors, however, were firm iu their demands, and last Monday's prices were steadily supported. At the close of business the bulk of the supply had been disposed of. Only a moderate supply of foreign wheat was on the stands. Generally speaking, the trade was quiet, and millers showed but little disposition to operate extensively, either in American or Continental produce. In the transactions effected, however, the full prices of Monday last were obtained. Floating cargoes of grain were in average request, and prices ruled Arm. There was a moderate supply of English barley on th6 stands, and the show of foreign produce on offer was tolerably large. Good and fine malting qualities were in demands, at full quotations. For grinding barley there was a fair de. mand, at quite previous rates. Otherwise the barley trade was quiet, on former terms. In malt only a moderate business was transacted, at previous quotations. The maiket was moderately supplied with oats. Both for English and foreign qualities there was a good demand, and prices advanced quite Is. per qr. from Monday last. In some instances the improvement was n. ûd. per qr. The supply of beans on sale was very smalL Last week's advance in prices, conBt2^nl wel1 mai&tained, and in some mstances rather exceeded. Peas ruled firm, at fully late rates. The market was scantily supplied. In flour about 811 w,as transacted, at full currencies. The supply of barrels on sale was smalL METROPOLITAN CATTLE MARKET, THURSDAY. The show of foreign beasts in to day's market wss mode- rate, of sheep and calves limited. Siles progressed steadily, and the quotations had an upward tendency. The arrivals 01 beasts fresh up from our own grazing districts, as well as from Scotland, were tolerably good, and for the most part in prime condition. Nearly all breeds met a slow inquiry, and in some instances prices were a shade lower than on Monday last, However, the best Ssots and crosses produced 5s. 4d. per 81b. The supply of beasts from Ireland was very middling. The show of sheep was very limited, but in full average condition. About one third of the supply was out of the wool. The mutton trade was active, at an advance in the quotations of fully 2d. per SIb. Do vns in the wool realised 6a. 4d. per 81b. Some half bred tegs with prime skins changed hands at 6s. 6d, and even 6s 8d. per, Sib. The top figure for clippel sheep was 5s. 2d to, in some cases, 5s. 4d. per 81b. The few lambs on offer readily produced 7s. to 7s. 4d. per 81b. Calves were in short supply, and good re- quest, on higher terms. The top price was 5s. 2d. per 81b. Tile pork trade was firm at enhanced quotations. POTATOES. Moderate supplies of home-grown potatoes are on sale at these markets to day. In most qualities a steady business is doing, at our quotations. Last week's Import was 30 tons from Jersey 40 Caen 100 sacks Boulogne 5 baskets Rot- terdam 117 tons from Antwerp. Yorkshire Regents, 80s. to 100s.; Flukes, 120s. to 140s.; Kent and Essex Regents, 80s. to 1oos.; Scotch Regents, 70s. to 80s.; Rocks, 70s. to 80s.; Dunbar Regents tOs. to 110s.; Foreign, 55s to 65s. per ton. WOOL. The trade for all descriptions of English wool continues very quiet. The amount of business transacted since our last Is small, at the recent fall in prices. In the value of colonial wool, in the private contract market, very little change has taken place; the market, on the whole may be considered steady, notwithstanding that buyers operated cautiously in most descriptions. Tha first series of public sales for the year will probably be commenced on the 2nd proximo. The arrivals at present amount to 46,9J9 bales, consisting of 6,308 bales from Sidney; 16,390 Port Phillip; 403 Van Diemau's Land; 4,613 Adelaide; 53 Swan River; 142 New Zealand and 19,000 bales from the Cape of Good Hope. Advices from the Australian colonies state that the new class of wool waa good, anu that at the leading ports of shipment a fall in prices of from id. to 2d. per I b. had taken place in the prim current at the commencement of the aeaaotu
