THE LONDON MARKETS METROPOLITAN CATTLE MARKET LONDON MONDAY, October 19.—There was a large supply of foreign beafts and sheep on offer in to-day's markfetj The show of calves was seasonably extensive. Sheep, the quality of which Wiis good, were in request, at very full prices; but beasts and calves met a dull inquiry at late rates. The arrivals of home-fed beasts fresh up this morning were again large; but their general quality was by no means prime. The best breeds were, consequently, taken off somewhat freely, at full quotations, the top figure being 5b per 81b; otherwise, the beef trade was in a sluggish state, at last week's currency. From Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, and Northamptonshire, we received 2,200 short- horns, &c from other parts o'f England, 950, of various breeds; from Scotland, 3 Scots; and from Ireland, 760 oxen and heifers. We were rfgain but moderately supplied with sheep as to number. but their quality was prime. 'The mutton traders arm, and, in some instances ptices advanced 2d per 91b. A. few very supe- rior old Downs produced 5s 6d, but the general top figure, was 5s id pfer 81b. Calves were in fair average supply, and heavy request, at about previous quotations,; viz,, from a8 4d to 4s 4d perelb. There was a moderate inqulry for pigg, at stationary, prices. !> -■ ■ i' Ter tlfn. ta iink the Ofalt = Coarss and inferior a. d. s. d.

CoRN UxoHANGK MONDAY, October 19.-The supply of wheat from Essex, and Kent this morning was short; that of barley, beans, and peas moderate with few fresh arrivals of oats from our-own coast, Scotland, and Ireland. There were liberal im- ports of foreign grain and flour. Two days, in the past week proved very wet, the remainder tolerably dry, enabling formers, to make fair progress with autumnal tillage. Yesterday wM fine, this morning unsettled and damp. English wheat met a fair, sale, arid fine qualities were the same in price as last week. The demand for foreign wheat was still in retail, and prices without any quotable change. The top price of town-made flour was unaltered. Country marks were in slow request on former terms. Americans the same in priee. Choice maltix? barlev was m good request, at the full prices of last week; intermedial qualities purchased slowly, but were not offered on much tower terms. Malt was in limited demand at previous quotaiione.. lteans were rather dull at barely last week's currency Peat met a limited inquiry, and were Is per quarter lower generally There was a moderate extent of business transacted in oats, at last Monday'r, currency for good corn, with no quotable change, for other sorts. Linseed was steady in value and demand. Rapeseed commanded former currencies. Red eloverseed was firm, and fine qualities realised as much money. BRITISH. „ Shillings per Qr. Shillings per (jr.
