MANCHESTER, THURSDAY.—The wheat trade his been without improvement during the past week, and a further reduction in values must be reported. To-day's market presented no new feature; English wheat 3d to 6d per quarter and foreign Id to 2d per cental lower. Flour barely steady. Peas Id per cental cheaper. Beans receded 3d per quarter. Oats and barley un- changed. Maize has declined about Id per cen- tal since last Thursday. LONDON, MONDAY.—The cargo market is some- what firmer, and red wheats for shipment are occasionally held for higher rates while Russian descriptions their is more inquiry. Maize has been firmly held with more inquiry, but closed quiet. Barley is firm and occasionally 3d. better. Oats quiet and unaltered. Beans inactive. At Mark Lane there was a fair attendance, but trade was extremely slow and discourageing to holders who in many instances were disposed to accept easier terms. English new crop wheat was in fair supply at full rates, and there was a moderate demand; old crop quiet. Foreign wheat was steadier than on Friday, but prices are fully 6d. worse on the week. Flour ruled slow at recent currencies. Maize owing to large arrivals, was about 3d cheaper. Barley was in limited request at late rates. Oats ruled 3d. to 6d. cheaper con- sequent on liberal supplies. Beans and peas quiet and nominally unchanged. CATTLE. LIVERPOOL, MONDAY.—The supply of cattle was larger than last week, and of sheep and lambs smaller. The demand was slow for each prices irregular, and generally without alteration for all classes of stock. Beef, first class, 6&d.; second class, Sid.; thit-d class, 4Jd. per lb. Mutton and lamb, 71d. to 5d per lb. Live-weight cattle, 36s. to 23s per cwt. At market, 1,945 cattle and 12,837 sheep and lambs. LONDON, MONDAY.—The total imports of for- eign stock into London last week amounted to 1.849 head. In the corresponding period of last year we received 1,014; in 1891, 12, 886; in 1890, 12,309; and in 1889, 8,312. At Liverpool were received 630 beasts from Baltimore, 912 beasts from Boston, 1,683 beasts from Montreal, and 141 beast from Norfolk, and at Southampton, 5 beasts from Jersey and Guernsey. The cattle trade has been quiet and without any special feature. Sup- plies were about the average, and were sufficient. With reference to beasts, a fair number were offered, and the general condition was somewhat improved. Business progressed quietly, and prices remained much about the same. The best Scots, Welsh runts, and Herefords made 4s 8d to 43 lOd.; choice Lincolns. 4s. 6d to 4s 8d and heavy beasts, 4s. to 4s 8d.; and heavy beasts, 4s. to 4s 4d. per 8lb. Secondary qualities met a slow sale. The sheep pens were fairly well filled. The trade was quiet at about late currencies. DEAD MEAT. JJOSTDON, MONDAY.—This morning the supply was only moderate, but the demand being very limited the market was not cleared. Prices were not firm and the trade closed with a tendency to lower rates.

WOOL. BRADFORD, THURSDAY-.—Owing to the depress- ing influence of the coal famine, and the state of the American market, the demand is quiet to-day, though for what business is doing there is no quotable change of prices. Lustre descriptions are still most sought after. Merinos are quiet. BRADFORD, MONDAY.—Though actual business in this market is still unquestionably slow and dissapointing, there is no real depression, and traders still thirjk tha- the lull in the market is only due to temporary causes. The coal strike is undoubtedly influencing business, and on change to-day it has been made the excuse by spinners for declining engagements. On the other hand country advices show that the wool trade is better outside than it is here, and there is really no pros pect of values giving way. To-day's quotations are unchanged all round. Lustres are the wools most wanted, but for merinos there is less stagna- tion. and consequently some hope that the bottom has been touched. Mohair is quiet but steady, and for alpaca some business is passing. The yarn branch is no quieter, and hopes are entertain- ed that a revival will be seen shortly, especially as merchants for a month or two past have done very little in the shape of new business. In pieces there are prospecti of a better home trade for t be winter, but the export branch is still unsatisfactory Specially the American, which is osnallj Br: ftwd's best customer for aduMcI goofr.
