LONDON MARKETS, fee. MARK LANE, MONDAV AFTEIINOON, JULY 2.1849. The weather continues favourable for the growing grain cropi, and the reports from the country are still of a satisfactory cha- racter. The wheat trade, nevertheless, maintains a tolerably firm tone. At A] aik lane, to-day, theie was a very small show of samples, by land carriage, from the home counties, and none fresh up coastwise. The best qualities were placed early, and realised rather higher prices; but secondary sorts did not sell freely, and were certainly nLt dearer than on this day se'nnigbt. The country demand for foreign wheat was rather slow,and the local millers being exceedingly cautious, operations were by no means extensive. Polish Odessa and similar descriptions scarcely sold so well as on Monday last; but superior qualities, whether white or red, were quite ap dear as before. There was not much doing in flour, and its value underwent no change requiring notice. Barley was taken slowly, but the little business done was on terms fully equal to those previously current. Malt moved off tardily at about former rates. There were a few parcels of oats fresh up coastwise, and several cargoes from abroad, making together a good display of samples. Really fine corn being comparatively scarce, com- manded (ully as much money as on this day week, and though the sale for other sorts was tardy in the extreme, prices were not lower. English beans were rather dearer, but Egyptian were freely offered at previous prices. Peas of all sorts held firmly at pre- vious terms. We heard of no transactions in Indian corn.

The supply of beasts on sale in 10-day's market being con- siderably on the increase, and of excellent quality, the demand for all breeds was in a very inactive state, at a decline in the quotations realised on Monday last of quite 2d. per 8lbs. There was a decided falling off in the number of sheep. Prime old Downs (which were scarce) sold at prices fully equal to those obtained on this day se'nnight. Oiherwise, the mutton trade was far from active, at unaltered currencies. We had a full average supply of lambs on offer, the time of year considered. Only a moderate business was transacted in this description of stock, at last week's quotations. Calves were in fair average supply, and limited request, at late rates. The pork trade was heavy. In prices, however, we have no change to notice. Per Bibs, to sink the offal. s. d. s. d. a. d. s. d.
