MARKETS. FARMING AND THE CORN TRADE. W. L. Browne and (Jo. report:—Since (,f Sunday and Monday we have had no rain in this district, End the growing civps and pusuires are again bad in of moisture. Hay is now being gathered in many places, the yield proving to be but little more than half an average. The cutting of peas has commenced. Wheat has been slow, the unexpected decline in America hav- ing made the trade extremely dull. With the prospect of an exceedingly light crop, oats have been steady in value, but free importations have stopped any advance. Peas and beans have moved to a moderate extent at unchanged rates. At a reduction of 6d. per sack flour has been more freely purchased. In some districts offals have experienced a better demand, but on the whoie business has been quiet, and prices must be called from 2s 6d to 5s per ton lower.
