TRADE. J At the commencement of the present week, \911, h ive again to report, in Mark Lane, very short supplies of English Wheat from the principal, counties, which is accounted for in a great measure by the farmers being so busily engaged in sowing! nnd although a very small proportion of the salR- pit,* fresh received by land carriage came to hand dry and of really fine quality, the millera neverthe- less were indoced to give a Iiglit advance for the best descriptions, no improvement being obtained in the damp and rough parcels. With snch limited supplies of English Wheat as have come to hand during the last two or three weeks, there seem* some reason for improved prices being obtained, but there is not at present much speculative fee:ing in the trade, and the shipping demand for Foreign Wheat having materially subsided, has a tendency to check advanced rates to any great extent. I The demand for Malting Barley has been toler- j ably lively up to the present period, notwithstand- j ing there has been very little falling off in the liberal supplies received for some time past. There seems, however, a disposition to submit to a little reduction for all but the very best samples. A more lively demand is beginning to be experienced for the best description of Foreign Barley suitable fot grinding, and there is at present a very limitedstiog of samples at market. Supplies of New Beans have not come forward quite so liberally this week, but, with the ezoefr tion of a few orders for shippiag that have lately occurred, the trade has been f." the most part very inactive, and former prices barely maintained. It is, however, very probable that the supplier of thi. article will soon diminish, when some impro elueQt in prices may be anticipated. Having now very ittle demand for fine Maple of Grey Pease suitable for seed, some reduction id price has consequently occurred, and sales generally are far from brisk. For fine while boiling "ea there is at present more inquiry, and rather improved rates are beginning to be obtained. The supplies of Oats recently have been large* I chiefly from Ireland, but a considerable proportipf of the samples are light and of inferior quality- From Scotland there was a very liberal arrival aboip a fortnight since, but we are not at present, receiving many cargoes from this quarter, as the farmers are now much occupied in fleld labours, and have also a good demand for shipping to various other places It is, however, expected, when seed time is more advanced, that further shipments 19 London will occur. Fine qualities of Lincolnshire, Polands, or Black Tartary feed, are now obtaining high prices for seed, but there is no great deal of animation in the oat trade generally, and very little improvement in prices has occurred. By some of the recent importations from Ireland the merchant* are said to have been losers, which may properly occasion a falling off in the supplies from thenoe. The supplies of Malt lately have been large, but the trade has been tolerably lively upon theo,whole at very steady prices. There is also a fair demand at the present tiint for the town manufactured and ship flour at very firm rates.-John Bull.
