THE MARKETS. MARK-LANE, MONDAY. About an average quantity of English wheat was on sale here to-day, but the general quality of the samples was by no means first-rate. For most kinds there was a fair, but by no means active, inquiry, at last Monday's decline in the quotations. The supply of foreign wheat was good. For the most part sales progressed slowly, neverthelesa last week's prices were supported. The transactions In floatinll cargoes of grain were by no means extensive. The number on sale was large. Malting barley was in good request, at very full prices but grinding and distilling sorts moved off slowly, at late rates. Malt, the supply of which was tolerably good, realised full quotations, although the trad,$ was inactive. Oats were quite as dear as last week, owing tCi the moderate importations trom abroad. Beans were steady in price, with a slight improvement in the demand. W& have no change to notice in the value of peas. The business doing was limited. The sale for flour was inactive, at last week's prices. Seeds and cakes met a dull inquiry. Pricey however, were supported. METROPOLITAN CATTLE MAHKET, MONDAY. The show of foreign stock here, to-day, was limited, but in fair average condition. The demand ruled steady, and prices were flrmly supported. From our own grazing districts the arrivals ot beasts fresh up this morning were moderate, and of full weight. The receipts from Scotland were rather more extensive, from Ireland limited. Nearly all breeds met a steady demand, at prices quite equal to Mondaj last. The best Scots and crosses realised 4s. 10d. per 81 tx the supply from Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex, and Cambridge- shire, comprised about 1,100 Scots and crosses; from other parts of England, 450 various breeds; from Scotland, 60& Scots and crosses; and from Ireland, 120 o*ea, cows, &c, With sheep we were tolerably well, but not to say heavily, supplied for the time of year. There was a decided improve- ment in the demand for most breeds, at an advance in the quotations of 4d. per SIb. The best Downs and half-breds in the wool realised 5s. 4d. per Sib. The best shorn sheep were inactive, at 4s. 6d. to 4s. 8d per SIb. The general quality of the supply was good There was an improved sale fot lambs-the supply of which was moderate-at from 841. to 40s. each. In calves very little business was transacted, on lower terms. The supply was limited. The inquiry for plg» was heavy; but no quotable decline took place in prices. POTATOES.
