MANCHESTER, THURSDAY.—The trade still remains in a lifeless state. English and foreign wheat without any quotable change in value, with merely a consumptive demand. Flour could generally be obtained at a reduction of 6d. sack, and business was limited. No change in oats and beans. Maize lost last week's advance. WAKEFIELD, FRIDAY.—Wheat met with little attention this morning. Fine sorts commanded late rates, but inferior descriptions were in buyers' favour. Barley very dull. Beans, oats, and maize steady. SHREWSBURY, SATURDAY.—The general trade of this mar- ket had a slightly improved tone, and a fair amount of business was done both in wheat and barley. Those who for some weeks past have refused buyers' bids appeared to have made up their minds to sell, for beyond the delivery of grain there is no em- ployment for farmers' horses. Prices were s. d. s. d. White Wheat, ¥ 75 lbs 6 2 @ 6 9 Red ditto „ 5 6 5 9 Barley,$70 lbs 5 0 5 6 Oats, 1jJ 225 lbs IS0200 Beans, V 235 lbs 17 0 19 0 Peas, # 2-25 lbs 16 0 18 0 Malt 8 9 9 6 LIVERPOOL, FRIDAY.—Wheat was dull of sale, but was not pressed, and although the tendency of prices was in buyers' favour there was hardly any quotable change. Flour very slow, and rather lower. Beans quiet, and rather cheaper. Peas dull, at Id. Veental lower. Indian corn in limited demand, at rather easier rates. LONDON, MONDAY.—The market remains very quiet. Both English and foreign wheat met a slow sale, without quotable alteration in value. Flour a quiet trade, at former prices. Grinding barley fiat and tending lower; malting kinds firm. Foreign oats 6d. to 9d. dearer on the week for low qualities; heavy sorts the turn against buyers. Maize slow of sale.

Malt, 8s. 6d. to 9s. 6d.— There was a numerous attendance of millers, maltsters, and corn dealers, and a large quantity of wheat and barley was on offer, the samples being much better in quality than those shown at many recent markets conse- quently the best samples made good prices, while inferior and middling qualities were a shade lower. CHESTER, SATURDAY. Prime red wheat met a good demand at 8s. 4d. V loo lbs. Oats and malting barley in small supply, at unchanged rates. ABERYSTWYTH, MONDAY. WhMt, 6s. Od. to 7s.

Cattle. METROPOLITAN, MONDAY. The cattle trade was very heavy. Reduced prices had to be submitted to, toe only de- scription commanding attention being the finest Scotch beasts; 5s 4d. V 8 lbs. was quite the extreme quotation; Herefords out of date, 5s. to 5s. 2d. The British arrivals comprised 350 Scotch, 60 Irish, 1,100 Norfolk, Suffolk, and Essex, and 920 Midland and Home Counties. Sheep flat, the supply being in excess of requirements. Choice calves wanted. Pigs a very dull sale.— Prices: Beef, 4s. 4d. to 5s. 4d.; mutton, 5s. od. to 6s. 10d.; veal, 5s. 6d. to 6s. 6d.; pork, 3s. 4d. to 4s. Od. The stock on offer consisted of 3,240 beasts, 10,480 sheep, 90 calves, and 20 pigs; included in which were 826 foreign beasts and 1,350 foreign sheep. LIVERPOOL, MONDAY.—The stock on offer consisted of 1,550 beasts and 5,063 sheep (included in which were 101 American cattle and 169 sheep). There was a falling-off in the supply of both cattle and sheep, there being three Irish boats with stock which had not arrived, but the supply was equal-to the demand. A small attendance of country customers.—Prices: Best beasts, 7!d. to 8d.$lb.; second ditto, 6d. to 7d.; American 6d. to 7 £ d.; sheep, 8d. to 10d. LAMPETER. FRIDAY. -,it this day's monthly market, there was a smaller supply than usual of pigs. The number of cattle was also very scanty.

Od. P score; sows, 7s. 6d. to 8s.: porket pigs, 10s. to 10s. 3d. SALFORD, TUESDAY.—The supply of beasts at market was good. Trade was moderately active for all classes, at the full rates of last week. A few American beasts were penned, and prices as a rule had a lowering tendency. The number of sheep on offer to-day was larger than that of last Tuesday, and prices as a rule had a lowering tendency. Good calves were difficult to meet with, and made high prices.—Beef, 51d. to 7!d. ;¡jJ lb.; mutton, 7!d. to 91-d.; veal, 8d. to 9d. LONDON DEAD MEAT MARKET, MONDAY.—The follow. ing were the quotations 1* 8 lbs. by the carcase: Middling and inferior beef, 2s. 6d. 3o 4s. 4d.: prime ditto, 4s. 4d. to 4s. 10d.- middling and inferior mutton 3s.

Od. to 3s. 6d.; small ditto, 3s. 8d. to 4s. 2d.—There was only a moderate supply of meat on sale to-day, but owing to the unfavourable weather trade was very bad. Miscellaneous. LIVERPOOL PROVISION, WEDNESDAY. Beef has been dull during the past week, and prices hardly tested. Pork quiet, without material alteration. Bacon in fair demand and prices have improved 6d. to Is. Outside quotations of Cumber- land cut are 2s. 6d. higher; shoulders are unchanged. Hams firm, and Is. to 2s dearer. Cheese in fair request, and prime qualities in sellers' favour. Butter unaltered. Lard in good request, aud, after some fluctuations, showed an advance of 6d. on the week. LONDON PROVISION, MONDAY.—The arrivals last week from Ireland were 4,509 bales bacon, and from foreign ports 11,5S1 packages butter and 1,094 bales bacon. The supplies of really fine foreign butter are scarce and iii demand; best brands in casks offering at about 130s. to 136s and 140s. to 148s. offering for superior quality in baskets. Quay price of best Dutch 130s. to 132s.; inferior qualities are very irregular in prices. The bacon market ruled steady but quiet, with little alteration to notice m prices during the week for either Irish or Hamburg. IRISH AND AMERICAN PROVISIONS, LIVERPOOL, FRI- DAY.-Butter: There is a continued good demand, and stocks are in a narrow compass. Bacon in steady request, and values well maintained. Lard: A fair enquiry, and prices have im- proved is. V ewt. Cheese: Strictly choice is held for extreme prices, but any strong-flavoured are difficult to move. AGRICULTURAL SEEDS, LONDON, MONDAY.

Piercy, Long- bottom, and Faram, in their circular, say-Our market is almost bare of supplies from the growers, so that the small demand cannot be regularly supplied. Choice hops are more in request, and there is a retail demand for other sorts. LONDON HOP, MONDAY.—The business passing in our market is very limited, and prices in consequence are uneven. Choice and coloury samples command full values, on account of their extreme scarcity, while medium and low if pressed for sale realize less money.

There seems to be rather more willingness to buy, though only for actual re- quirements. It is impossible for holders to maintain values with much firmness. Botany wools are also inclining down- wards. More enquiry has taken place for export yarns, at very low limits. Piece trade very sluggish. LIVERPOOL WOOL, FRIDAY.—At the public sales held here from the 28th instant to this day 20,375 bales miscellaneous were catalogued. The attendance of buyers has been only moderate, and competition slow, except for Egyptian, such as are suitable for blanket purposes, which realized an advance of Jd. to id. on the very low November rates. Inferior Oporto have suffered a decline of d. to d., Peru id., and Lima d. 19 lb. River Plate wools, however, have brought fully late private-contract prices. The total quantity sold is about 4,900 bales. In alpaca, 430 bales Tacua have been sold during the week at ]2d., and 352 bales fair average fleece at 17d. V th.-Quotations: East India white, 6d. to lild.; yellow, 3U1. to iii-d.; L-Tay, &c., 3d. to 91d.; washed Peruvian, 9d. to 14d.; washed River Plate, lOJd. to 14d.; unwashed River Plate, 6d. to 9Jd.; washed Morocco, 9d. to lid.; unwashed Morocco, 4d. to 6d.; Egyptian white, 7d tc 13d.; Oporto fleece, loid. to lid.; mohair Is. lOd. to Is. lid.; alpaca, Is. 3d. to Is. 5d. LONDON WOOL, MONDAY.—There is still very little business passing in English wool. The tone is very depressed, and there is in conse luence no recovery from the low prices lately current. Colonial wool is in moderate request by private contract, and previous quotations are steadily supported. CURRENT PRICES. This year. Last year. (Per lb.) s. d. s. d. s. d. s. d.
