MARKETS. FARMING AND THE CORN TRADE. Messrs W. L. Browne & Co., report from Shrews- bury, on Saturday, January the 27th, as follows The country markets have been but thinly attended during the past week.

Barley has been in good supply, but as many of the larger buyers have stocked themselves for the season, the demand has been restricted, and a rednctiou of from Is to Is 6d per quarter has been necessary to effect sales. Oats have ruled steady in value, and a ftlir inquiry for the better sorts for seed purposes have been ex- perienced. Peas and beans have been firm. Flour has found more favour with buyers, and a moderate business at last week's prices has resulted. Milling cffals have moved freely, but no change in prices can be noted.

BRADFORD WOOL, THURSDAY.—The lull in business is no doubt aggravated by the South African con- ditions, but on the whole this market stands wonderfully steady under adverse cireumstauces. 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 WOQl, but strong crossbreds and English wools would perhaps, if fully tested, show a slight easing off.
