MARKETS. FARMING AND THE CORN TRADE. Messrs W. L. Browne & Co., report from Shrews- bury, on Saturday, February the 3rd, as follows The country markets have been but thinly attended during the week, and but a restricted business has been done. Wheat has moved to a moderate extent at unchanged prices. The quantity of barley offered has been much in excess of buyers' wants, and to effect sales it has been necessary to further reduce prices. Oats have been steady. In peas and beans there has been no change. Flour has sold more freely at last week's quotations. The demand for millers' offals has not been so active, but no change has taken place in values.

Transactions are few and far between, for there is indisposition alike to buy or to sell. Holders are quite satisfied of the value of their stocks, and users, having fully covered their requirements, do not feel in the least degree inclined to speculate. Quotations are unchanged for all kinds of wool, but strong crossbreds and English wools would perhaps, if fully tested, show a slight easing off.
