Corn Trade.



LONDON MARKETS. MARK-LANE, MONDAY, DEC. 15. We have had large supplies of wheat since this day week, which, with the unsettled state of the trade, in consequence of the ministerial crisis, have further depressed the market and we note to-day a declIne of 2s. to 3s. per qr. on English wheat. foreign wheats meet a limited demand, and sales of anv extent cannot be made within Is. to 2s. of late prices. Holders of bonded wheat remain firm, and little business doing in conse- quence. Flour very dull. and ship samples attain Is. per sack lower. The samples of barley are very largj none but the finest samples are saleable at last week's prices all ordinary sorts ate Is. per qr. lower, and very dull of sale. Beans of all sorts are In. to 2s. per qr. cheaper. White peas 3s. per qr., and maple and grey Is. to 2s. per qr. lower. H There is a large supply of oats at market, and we have-again a very dull trade. Prices, Is. per qr. lower on all descriotiona. n. CURRENCY PER IMPERIAL MEASURE.

This being the day appointed for holding the Great Christinas Market, the attendance of both town and country buyers was numerojs at a very early hour. As was to be expected, the arrivals of beasts, from nearly every part of England, were large, though not quite equal in number to those at the corresponding day in 1B44, when 5,713 were shown. The beef trade must be considered inactive, at currencies varying from 3s. 6d. to 4s. 8d. per Bibs. and at which a total clearance was not effected. The numbers of sheep were on the increase, and of unusually prime quality indeed, the oldest man living never saw so splendid a collection of that description of stock as was the case here this morning. As to weight, the Downs wete in admirable order; while the Rents, Leicesters, G loucesters, and all other breeds were in excellent condition. Although the mutton trade was not to say brisk, a full average amount of business was doing, and last week's quotations were supported in every instance. There was only a moderate number of calves on offer. Prime qualities of veal were in demand, at late rates, but other kinds hung on hand still, the whole of the supply was disposed ot. 1 he show of pigs was extxemely good in quality, but the num. ber was by no means large. Each kind of pork sold readily, at fully, but at nothing quotable beyond, last week's prices. Considering the vast supplies of stock here this morning, everything passed off extremely well, the aocommodation being of the saire character as those provided last year.
