AGRICULTURE, COMMERCE AND LONDON MARKETS. IN LIVERPOOL COTTON MARKET, June II.-WC had a very quiet market today, and the sales do not exceed 1500 bags, at yesterday's prices. LIVERPOOL, June I I.-Of wheat the imports con- tinue moderate; but the arrivals of the last two days have swollen the supplies of oats, flour, and oatmeal to rather a large amount. Since this day sennight the wheat trade has been in the same languid state we have, for several weeks past, had occasion to note and even picked samples have with difficulty maintained their previous value secondary and inferior qualities have been offered on decidedly lower terms, Piime marks of flour have been in fair demand, and have realized our last quotations. A few parcels of low priced oats have been taken for provender but for mealing qualiiies the demand has been very limited 0n Friday, however, 2s 7d was ob. tained for choice Newry. The few Wicklow on the mar- ket were held at 2s 8d and good West of Ireland at 2s 5d to 2s 6d per 451bs. A little good Irish meal has been sold at 21s to 21s Cd per load, but few holders would accept these prices. One or two cargoes of Welsh barley have been taken at 3s 9d to 3s lOd per 601bs. in English there has been very little passing at late rates. Rather higher prices have been obtained for beans. Pease are in a little more request. There are numerous inquiries for bonded flour, both for export and on speculation. 17s 6d has been refused for sour; old sweet, of which there is now little remain- ing. is held at 22s to 23s per bairel. Today's Market was again dull. The best qualities of wheat must be noted Id, and general runs about 2d per 70lbs cheaper than last Tuesday. A few cargoes ot West of Ireland Oats were sold at 2s 4d to 2s 5d per 451be.; and some speculative purchases occurred in oatmeal at 21s 6d to 21s 9d per load. Flour was difficult of sale inferior marks were offering on rather lower terms. SPILSBY CORN MARKET, June 10—Wheat 46s to 54s, barley 22s to 26s, oats 14s to 18s, rye 28s to 30s and beans 30s to 32s. LINCOLN CORN MARKET, June 7.—We had a fail supply of wheat, which was taken off at last week's prices no barley offered; oats steady beans more in demand, at rather higher prices. Wheat 50s to 57s, oats 13s to 20s, barley 20s to 2Gs, and beans 33s to 37s per qr. HEREFORD.—Owing to the long continued drought, the wheat and barley crops were looking somewhat weak and sickly, and the late genial showers, therefore, so long anxiously desired, literally fell like 11 drops of fatness" upon the parched and thirsty earth. The rapidity of tbe growth of hop. is, we believe, almost without precedent, and the rain must be of service in dislodging the fly, of which, however, at present we hear but little complaint in this county. Hay harvest, which had partially coro- menctd in this neighbourhood, will now be somewhiu retarded, but with much heavier crops. Clover is look- ing beautiful and promises an abundant produce. In the orchards throughout this county, the indications of a bit" of fruit at the commencement of the blossom are likely to be fully realized; in fact the present is antici- pated to be a most excellent fruit year—a circumstance highly gratify ing, as a good supply of the county beve. rage is at all times most acceptable to our agriculturists. EAST RETFORD, June 5.-Witliiii the recollection tlf the oldest inhabitant, the hop plantations never had a more promising appearance than they have at present; notwithstanding the late dry weather, they have conti- nued to run up the poles, in some instances as much as six or seven inches a day, and the accumulation of filth was trifling, compared with what might have been ex- pected from the continued aridity of the atmosphere. Ti.e foliage ot the bine is exceedingly strong, and since last Sunday night s rain it has been as clear and as luxfiriam as the most ardent desire of a crop would wish for. The prices of old hops are upon the decline.
