LONDON MARKETS, &c. 1 LONDON CORN EXCHANGE, MONDAY, FEB. 20. Considerable inactivity prevailed in the demand for wheat in the country markets held on Saturday, notwith- standing that the supplies on offer were but moderate. All spring corn—the receipts of which were on the increase moved off heavily, and the currencies had a downward tendency. The quantity of English wheat received fresh up to our market to day, coastwise, were very moderate, and in market to day, coastwise, were very moderate, and in middling condition. By land carriage, the supply was small, and the show of samples was, consequently, limited. Notwithstanding that the news from Russia is very war- like, and that we had a fair number of country millers in attendance, the demand for most kinds of wheat^or home produce was in a sluggish state, at last Monday s prices. For forward delivery, so little was doing, that the quota- tions were almost nominal. „ .N ew UJd. Shillings per Quarter.

All kinds sold readily at the extreme rates of Monday, and a clearance was readily effected. Most of the importers of foreign wheat demanded more money; hence, the business doing was not extensive. Prices, however, were fully supported. We have an improved inquiry for barley, at extreme rates. There was only a moderate inquiry for malt on former terms. The oat trade was firm, and there was more disposition shown to purchase flower. SMITHFIELD CATTLE MARKET, FEBRUARY, 20. Owing to the strong gales of Saturday, several steamers laden with stock have not made their appearance conse quently the show of foreign beasts, sheep, and calves here to-day was limited. f v From our own grazing districts the receipts of beasts fresh up this morning were very moderate but in fair ave- rage condition. The attendance of buyers being good, the beef trade ruled brisk, at an advance in the prices obtained on Monday last of 2d per 8lbs, and a good clearance was effected. The primest Scots were worth 4s lOd^per 8lbs. Very few calves were on offer. 1 he veal t inactive at last week's currency, i he highest price was 5s 4d per 81bs. I s. d. s. d. „. s- u, »• u.

REMARKS. Rails-Some sales are reported, and the market is look- inn more healthy. Scotch pigs have fluctuated from 78s to 79s1 during the past week; the market leaves off with sellers at 78s 6d cash. Spelter is less active there are buyers atf23 los, and sellers at jC24 on the spot. Copper continues in good request. Lead is very firm, with an upward tendency. Tin-plates are in good demand. LIVERPOOL, FEB. 1G.—An active state of the Iron trade has existed during the week, and full prices have been freely given. Scotch pig iron being largely held, specula- tion fluctuates with the political changes of the day. The market has been pretty steady all the week, at 78s to 79s per ton for warrants, f o b. at Glasgow, but the market closes heavily, at 78s 6d, with buyers shy. American brands are in demand. No change in Tin plates, which are held firmly. Tin, Lead, and Copper maintain former prices firmly. I
