THE MARKETS. MARK-LANE, MONDAY. The supply of English wheat on sale at Mark-lane to-day was smail, but the condition of the produce was good. Millers showed more disposition to buy, and the show of produce on the stands was disposed of at the rates of Monday last. There was, however, a slight tendency to improve- ment. The market was fairly supplied with foreign wheat. The amount of business transacted was moderate, and prices ruled firm. Floating cargoes of grain were in fair demand, at full quotations. The supply of barley on sale was mode- rate. For most qualities there was a fair demand, and at last Monday's currency. Malt sold heavily, and prices had a drooping tendency. The market was but moderately sup. plied with oats. For most qualities there was a steady demand, and prices were rather on the advance. Beans are in short supply, and the trade ruled firm, at full currencies. Peas, which are in short supply, changed hands at full currencies. For flour there was a moderate inquiry, at late rates. The amount of business transacted in seeds was very moderate. In prices no change took place. Oats were in fair demand, at full quotations. METROPOLITAN CATTLE MARKET. -IFONDAY.

An increased supply was received from Scotland, in prime condition. The attendance of butchers, owing to the absence of the greater portion of country buyers, was small, and the beef trade, as regards aU qualities, ruled heavy, at a decline in the quotations, as com- pared with Monday last, of 2d. per 81b.
