LONDON MARKETS, &C. 1 LONDON CORN EXCHANGE, MONDAY AFTERNOON, MAV 3 Mort of the country markets held on Saturday were but moderately supplietl with English wheat, for all kinds of which the demand ruled steady at full prices. At the outpottsvery little business was transacted in foreign wheats. Rialting barley was scarce, and quite as dear. Grinding and distilling sorts moved off slowly. The malt trade was less active; but good sound oats, beans, and peas were film. Indian corn and flour sold" at full currencies. The latest accounts from New York are to the effect that the value of the finest flour had an upwardtendenyc, with steady shipments to the United Kingdom. Tie arrivals of Engl'sh grain up to our market last week were snixll. The quantity of English wheat received fresh up to our market to-day was limited, and prices were fully Is per qr. lower than on Monday last. We had a firm, though not to say brisk, inquiry for oats, the value of which was supported io every instance. The stock of foreign he-e is trifling. Most kinds of beans were held firmly, but no advance was noticed in prices. White and maple peas were the lurn dearer. The nominal piice of the best town-uiaue flour was 40s per 2801 bs. Shillings per quarter.

MONDAY, MAY 3. The fine rains which fell in most p^rts of England, last week, having induced many of the glaziers to withhold a portion of their stock for the present, the supply of home-fed beasts on sale this morning was comparatively limited, whilst its general quafity was not to say first rate. There being a slight decrease in the arrivals of sheep, the mutton tiade ruled tolerably steady, and last week's currencies well supported- We were tairly supplied with lambs, wliich changed hanis slowly, a? bart-ly the late decline. Ca;ves were in large supply, and heavy demand but no fur- ther decline look plaoein prices. '1 he pork trade was dull, and the best small porkers were wOlth only 3s £ d per 81 bs.

REMARKS. The metal market has showu symptoms of considerable im- provement in prioe since last week, and a large business has been transacted in iron, copper, and tin, at advancing rates. Bar iron continues film at ki 7s 6d per too, hee on board in Wales. Large orders for rails are in the market; offers of E4 17s 6d free on board in Wales, have been refosed,and the price may be quoted firm at £0 5s per ton, with an upward tendency from the extensive inquiries made for this description of iron, a great im. provement i? anticipated by the trade. A slight advance in prices of pig-iron may.be quoted there are rather more buyers than last week at a shade better; we quote No. 1 at 36s 6d f.o.b. in Glasgow, nett cash. Spelter has been very quiet, without any transactions to report. Copper--none to be had at the standard price. Offert ofjE2 per ton above the last selling prices have been refused—an ad- vance is expected. Lead continues very firm, and in good request. British lill is -03 per ton better. E. I. is advancing. 100 tons Straits sold at 81s 6d, and a quantity of Banca at 839 6d per cwt. Tin plates sell largely, but prices continue unaltered.
