THE MARKETS, MARK-LANE.—MONDAY. There was no feature in the grain trade at Mark-lane, the market being more or less nominal. Scarcely any English wheat was on sale. There was not much demand, and quotations were much about the same. A few samples of new were received, but not sufficient to stamp quotations. Foreign wheat was in moderate supply. Business was on a quiet scale, at about late rates. Barley was scarce, and sold slowlv, but at extreme currencies. Malt sold at late prices. Oats were in fair supply and quiet request. The tendency of prices was rather in favour of buyers. Maize, though quiet, was firm and quite is dear. Beans and peas sold at previous quotations. The flour market was quiet and without feature. METROPOLITAN CATTLE MARKET.—MONDAY. The cattle trade showed no particular alteration. Supplies were short, although equal to requirements, and the level of prices was much about the same. The receipts of beasts from our own grazing districts were short. The condition and quality were, on the whole, tolsrably satisfactory. Generally speaking, the trade was quieter, at late rates. The best breeds sold at 5s. lOd. to^ 6s. per 81b. From Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, and Northamptonshire we received about 1,500, from other parts of England about 250, and from Ireland about 40 head. On the foreign side of the market was a fair show of beasts, including about 200 American, and some Danish and Spanish. The demand for them was quiet, at previous quotations. The sheep pens were rathersparingly filled. The show of English breeds was, however, fairly satisfactory. There was no feature in the market, sales progressing quieter, and prices ruling about the same as last week. The best Downs and half-breds sold at 6s. lOd. to 7s. per 81b. Lambs were quoted 7s. to 8a. per 81b. Calves add pigs sold at about late rates. At Dept- ford there were about 1,700 beasts, chiefly Tonning, and about 8,000 sheep and lambs.
