REVIEW OF THE BRITISH CORN TRADE. (From the Mark Lane Express.) The frequent sunshine of the past week has raised the temperature, but when the sun has been absent the air has still been cold for the time of year, and we have not yet had our quota of rain. Field work has, however, ad- vanced apace, and there is very little more sowing to be done; and this, though late, has been very satisfactorily accomplished from the pulverised state of the soil. A genial time henceforth would soon work wonders, in ger- minating the seed corn and improving the wheat; about which some are beginning to doubt, it being badly reported in the Fens and other localities, but June will more dis- tinctly tell us what we may expect. The altered weather, the opening Baltic, and the holidays have all contributed to increase our dulness, and the wheat trade has given way for the last fortnight to the extent of fully Is., while our deliveries still keep largely in excess of last year, in- dicating the pressure on the farming interest from bad crops, or continued apprehension of large foreign imports. The Baltic is certainly opening, and we may now have some first quality corn to replace the low sorts which have been lately working off from our granaries; but shippers there see prices much too close for a free trade, and there are few sanguine enough here, after the late losses, to be- come rash importers. Even in America prices have not yet adjusted themselves to British markets, notwithstand- ing their present depression. The inferior qualities of the Danube as well as much on the Azoff and Odessa, will only suit one certain class of millers here and those who mark the difference between the best town-made flour and the Norfolk-make, will see that such branches of business must be distinct. 50s. is still given for the best new Dan- zic wheat, but some inferior Russian sorts are not worth over 35s. With a difference of 15s. then in wheat there should be a difference in the sacks of flour of 12s. Now as with the generally admitted abundance abroad, there is a scarcity of fine samples, why should English farmers who have this quality, throw .away their only chance, as they near the ciose of the season, especially when the top price of flour is only 40s. per sack, and there seems no prospect of any further reduction on this side harvest? The sales of English wheat" noted last week were 59,869 qrs. at 42s.'8d., against 50,872 qrs. at 47s. in 1869. The imports into the Kingdom for the week ending April 9th were 390,681 cwts. wheat, and 74,163 cwts. flour. FLUCTUATIONS IN THE AVERAGE PRICE OF WHEAT.- March 5th, 41s.; March 12th, 40s. 9d.
