MANCHESTER, THURSDAY.—Trade has been quieter iurlDg tbe past week, wich little variation in valuee. At to-day a market there was a moderate consump- tive enquiry for most articles. English wheat was fi m at recent currencies. Foreign occasionally Id ,),reental dearer. Flour fully m inhined praviors atea. Oats wero slow, but nominally unohangpd. For beans and peas prices were rather against buyers. Maize has receded twopence since last Thursday. Prime American mixed quoted 43 2d per cental. LONDON' MONDAY.—Wheat: The car^o market is quiet, but in the asrsrregfate the tone is firm, with a good inquiry for Russian wheat. Values are nominally unchanged, and red American is held above the market. Maize i& excesaively slow, but holders are fairly steady. Barley is extremely quiet, and a shade weaker. Oats firm but quieter. At Mark Lane there was a good atten- dance and more demand for wheat. English new rop made rates fully Is. higher on the week. Foreign was 6d. and occasionally Is. dearer than on Monday last, and there was a good demand at the advaoo. Flour waa in moderate request, ind in some instances was harder to buy, but heavy supplies prevented any definite improve- ment in value. Maize was disappointing, and prices were not much better than on Mondny last. Barley was somewhat in sellers'favour, hut values show little change on the week. Oats firm at full prices. Beans firmly held. Peas quiet. CATTLE. LIVERPOOL, MONDA. Y.- The supply of cattle was larger, and of sheep smaller than last week. De- mand very slow for both cattle and sheep. Prices irregular, and in consequence of the coal strikes the tendency was in favour of buyers. Prices as follows:—Beef, first class, -lid.; second class, 5id 4 third class mutton 7d to 5d per lb, Live-weight cattle 35s. to 23s per cwt. At market 2,377 cattle and 12,912 sheep. LONDON. MONDA Y.-Tbe total imports of foreign stock into London last week amounted to 3,137 head. A quiet tone has characterised the cattle trade to-day. Supplies were about the average but as usual there was a scarcity of choice qual- ities. With reference to beasts the number offer- ing was not large. Business progressed quietly Really choice stock was scarce, and such was fair- ly steady in value; but secondary and inferior descriptions were irregular. The best Herefords and Devous made 4s 8d to 4s 10d., and heavy Lin- colns 4s Gel to 4s 8d, per 81b. The supply of sheep in the pens were moderate, though their condition was scarcely up to the average. A quiet demand prevailed throughout, and prices were about the same. DEAD MEAT. LONDON, MONDAY.—This morning supply was larger—far too heavy for the small demand—and the trade in consequence was bad. Prices varied considerably, very low rates being many instances accepted to • fleet a clearance. The trade closed extremely l ad, with a large quantity of meat of all iecii-ip' ions unsold. Inferior beef, 2s to 2s 8d.; middling ditto, 3d to 3s 6d.; prime ditto 3s 6d. to 4s Scotch ditto, 3s 8d to 4s. American Liver- pool killed, 3s 4d to 3s 6d.; ditto hindquarters, 3s 8d to 4" 4d.; ditto forequarters, 2s to 2s 4d English veal 3s 8d to 4s 4d.; Dutch ditto 3s to 4s. inferior mutton 2s 4d to 3s.; middling ditto, 3s 4d; to 4s prime ditto 4s to 4s 4d.; Scotch ditto, 4s to 4s Sd.; N< w Zealand ditto, 2s 2d to 2s 4d; large pork 3s id to 3s 8d.; small ditto, 4s 4d to 5s per 81b by the carcase. WOOL. BRADFORD, THURSDAY.—The partial stoppage of mills, owing to the coal famine, and the uncertainty a to the future, tend greatly to limit purchasers at our market to-day, but what trade is done is at late rites. Holders stick well to stocks and profess con- fidence. BRADFORD, MONDAY.—There is little change in the market here from last week. pinners are feeling the influence of the coal strike keenly, and in consequence their purchases are only of a retail character. Staplers, however, are by no menns depressed by the present condition of affairs, and are not anxious to lessen their stocks materially. They have every confidence that ere long there will be a change for the better, and as a result prices are kept firm. English wools are steady, and there has been a little more inquiry for mohair. Merino is also in a good position, while crossbreds are firm. LEICESTER, MONDAY.—The wool market is still quiet, but not more io than u ual on the eve of the London sales. Staplers are holding to stocks firmly from the knowledge that consumers have worked off large quantities of the raw material and will be buyers again when the trade of the aountry gets the turn from the present deadlock. In Botany and merino wools combers and spin- nera look for harder rates, while merchants can- not be induced to expect any improvement, and in numerous instances as regards hosiery they are trading on manufacturers' stocks almost entirely.
