REVIEW OF THE BRITISH CORN TRADE. (From the Mark Lane Express.) With a lower temperature much of the past week has brought us night-frosts, intermingled with rain, wind, occasional sunshine, and light fogs. The check to vege- tation has. been salutary, but the want of dry weather is much felt, so few lands being in working condition. The plants of wheat, though generally small, still look well, and, with a favourable spring, the harvest may yet be as early as is wont. The opening of the year continues dull, and the heavy stocks on hand act like a checkmate on business, for notwithstanding the easy position of the money market no speculative movement has yet shown itself. Two million quarters of foreign wheat in granary, representing four and-a-half millions, pounds, is something formidable to a country not used to free exports but, soberly considered, this amounts to nothing more than one month's consumption. Our last crop, being estimated at eleven million qrs. of wheat, if we add one million more for old of the good crop of 1868, and another million for foreign stocks, then we began the cereal season with thirteen million qrs Our con- sumption being estimated at twenty-four millions, there were eleven millions to provide. Of this needful supply our receipts from the 1st of Sept. to the 31st of Dec. were 4t millions, leaving still a void of 6 millions to fill up between the 1st of Jan. and the 31st of Aug., the remaining eight months. Therefore, not- withstanding our present heavy stocks, we can take monthly re- ceipts up to then amounting to 812,000 qrs.; or if imports should reach to one million monthly, we should find ourselves in stock at the end of the term about It million qrs. That as much can be sent is not quite certain; but if it coulj, is it likdy, when it would most probably have to meet for erdinary qualities on average of 40s., or a net price of perhaps only 84s. ? We think not, for the agricultural interest abroad has been everywhere improved since our adoption off, ee trade, and enough money has been made to produce speculation among great growers or tho mercantile interest; and, be it remembered, that in such a state of plethora, it is sometimes impossible to sell at all, unless at a sacrifice.
