'1'HE MARKETS. MARK-LANE. —MoNPAT. From Essex and Kent the receipts of English wheat were only moderate but the quality was good. As regards prices the market was steady notwithstanding that the demand for both red and white parcels ruled quiet. The market was well supplied with foreign wheat. Transactions were on a limited scale, but prices were well supported. The floating grain cargo trade was quiet in tone. In prices no change took: place. Moderate supplies of barley were 011 sale. All descrip- tions were firmly held, hut the inquiry was not active. Malt sold slowly, on former terms. Oats were in short supply and healthy request, at extreme currencies. Beans were quite as dear, with a limited sale. The show of samples was mode- rate. Peas were purchased quietly, on former terms. Busi- ne s in flour was restricted; nevertheless, the rates were firm. For maize there was a moderate inquiry, at fully late rates. Linseed and rapeseed were steady. Agrioulturalseeds were quiet. Cakes were firm in value. METROPOLITAN CATTLE MARKET.-MONDA.T. The show of beasts in the Metropolitan Market this mora- ins: wall 8.. un average for the time of year, bllt. owing to a falling off in the quality of the stock, the actual weight of meat exhibited. was somewhat less than on Monday last. The scarcity of prime stock, whIch has heen noticed for some weeks past, is doubtless owing to tle fact that the high prices current have been a suffictent inducement to graziers to forward their stock to market III a half. fat con- dition, thereby dIsposing of the same on very remunera- tive terms, and avoldmg the expense of further keep. As regards trade, a want of ammatIon was noticed, and pnces, althollgl1 not quotanly lower, had a drooping tendency. Foreign breeds were difficult to s1511.

From Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex, aud Cambridgeshire we re- ceied about 900 Scots and crosses from other parts of England, 500 various breeds: from Scotland, 164 Scots and crosss and fr.\1l1 Ireland, 40 oxen.
