c ,fnr;ncrj' Column. o REVIEW OF THE PAST WEEK'S CoRX TRADE.—"With mi: a weather and Christ mas-flay coming at the end of the same week, transactions Lave been limited. Bat very little alteration in the value of wheat, th-jugh some markets with short supplies hove improved. The greater plenty of rain has raised the ponds, and the land springs have again been rising, but only at a very moderate pace; the province of dry tveather for two years leaving the sod-stratum still hard in many places. P!en- tiful and declining markers have long been the order of our weekly reports but if the consumption for malting and cattle feeding is to continue at its present rate, the close of this season will certainly find stocks of wheat very much reduced; and the country quite unprepared for f;y sudden emergency, with its increasing papula- tion. ihe average fjr the last eighteen years is 55s. 10d., and for the last nine years, 54s. od. per qr. and row, upon an average crop. prices have deaceude-d to 40s. 2.1. per qr.—difference, 14s, 3d. per qr which, at only three j qrs. per fcre, Laq's 42s. 9 1. per acre less as m mey pro- duceu iro n the land. Heavy markets have ruled abroad but the Li'ur.- s in Poland and other placet leave it possi- àl9 that the Baltic may yet r quire shipments from Britain. The free imports from France cannot last without ruinous losses. From America very little seems coming the arrivals since the 1.6.h inst. have been 80 ve-ssels, anl the business transacted as one cargo of Taganrog Ghirtia wheat, at 38,. 3d. and about five cargoes of Maize at from 29s. to 27s. 9 1. The deli- veries noted last week were 99,187 qrs. at40s.2d., against 101,379 qrs. in 1857 The Landon averages were 44-. od. on 2,282 qr?. T ie imports into the prin- cipal >j;ts of Gre it iji;-ain for the eek ending Dec. 1-5, in wheat and fliur, were 73,489 qrs. As the see.! trada approaches i's season, there was more tone in the pricfs of clovers'.ed and tr-.jV.il though considering the low stocks and reputed ti -ion^y of our ov/n and foreign crop?, very liale was doing. As r sp-ets spring coin, ti.e values of middling and inferior bar] v, as well as of b-ans and peas, have b.-e:i furtner slightly reduced. Soot..old .us scarcely been in sy\npathy with the southern a tvie-s. In Ire'and trade lias b or. rather better, with- out material change.—.Uark-Laue Express. GARDEN 0Pi:AI10 N 5. FLOWTR GARDLX AND SniirEi)E:ai-s.—Exc pt in the dri s localities nothing more can be done in this depart- ment than paying attention to o: d.r and neatne??. The bedding stuff, however, n:u-t have- ettenthm, for in all likelihood many things are suif ilrg from da fop, and such plants as appear to suffer most should be removed to other quarters where a dri-r temperature is kept. Keep tbe stock in pits an 1 freuns w- hi ventilated and the surface soil of tee pons frequently stirred. Dust wi' suiphur verbenas and similar plants aiiaokod with mildew. lie particular in heepin_- i: e intenor of pits contai log plants ot the ai>jve eie^crip'.iou as dry as cir- cuAst-tnces will permit. HARDY FRUIT AND KITCHEN GARDEN.—Figs against walilis wiIil r: quire some rot -cting material pieced over them in the midland and northern counties. Some wall trees, as pears, plums, (henries, &e., are often attacked by a species of scide msec', in which ase the infected trees should be well wash id with a mixture of soft soap, tobacco water, and lime; half pint of spirits f terpen- tine may be adoed to each. gallons of the in zture i when they are much infested. The lime is added to give to gVe consistence to the mixture, and to show that no p.rts of the trees are missed in dressing. Let this be al plied | during dry weath.r if possible, that it may remain on I !for c tiai", and hefere the frees are nailed.
