CORN. LONDON, MOlI.day.-The provincial markets helc on Saturday were very moderately supplied witt home-grown wheat, but owing to the fiue weather, and to the continued downward move- ment in the prices in New York the trade was dull, and a fall of Is to 2s per quarter took place in the quotations. It is estimated that the sales in the United Kingdom amounted last week to 110,500 quarters,against 190,560 quarters last year. The smaJI quantities of barley offering changed hands at late rates, but oats, beans, and peas were in steady request at full prices. The flour trade was dull, and quotations had a downward tendency. On the Continent the weather has been favourable to the growing crops, and the decline in prices in New York has enabled buyers to make purchases on easier terms. The reduc- tion in the United States during the week has been in wheat about 2s per quarter, and flour and Indian corn are also cheaper. Influenced again by meteorological considerations and the flatness prevalent abroad, the trade was extremely heavy at Mark-lane to-day. English wheat was Is to 2s., and foreign 2s to 3s per quarter cheaper than on Mondav last. As regards the latter Russian, produce was the best held, the fall in few cases exceeding 2s per quarter. The attend- ance was moderate, but there was very little doing even at the reduction. Barley was dull and cheaper to sell. The malting season is now over. Malt moved somewhat in favour of buyers. Oats were in limited request and the turn lower; while maize, for which there was a very poor in- quiry, suffered to the extent of another 6d per quarter. Beans were steady. Peas met with a small demand and were slightly easier. Flour was decidedly flat, both sacks and barrels being a good Is cheaper.
