LONDON, MONDAY.—Wheat: The cargo mar- ket is extremely dull, with red descriptions fully 3d. worse. White wheats near at hand are weak, but in forward positions sellers are scarce. The market is in all departments considerably de- pressed by the weakness of American cables, and the general tendency in the buyers favour. Maize continues steady on passage but weak for shipment. Barley is quiet, but fairly steady. Oats dull and easy. Beans steady. At Mark Lane the attendances was moderate, but the de- mand all round was poor, with values tending against holders. English wheat has a slow sale at .1' _R_ 14 uccuae or sixpence on the week. Flour met a limited demand at 6d decline. Maize was nomin- ally unchanged with a small trade. Grinding barley is sparingly offered, and values are un. altered on the week. Oatil were hard to sell, and prices are 3d to 6d down. Beans and peas quiet at late rates.

LONDON, MONDAY.—The total imports of for- eign stock into London last week amounted to 1,494 head. The cattle trade has been quiet and featureless, and the tendency has not been strong. There was fair supplies available, and the advan- tage has rested with the buyer. Beasts came to hand in moderate numbers, but really choice stock was scarce. Business was on a limited __1_ scale, and prices remained about the same as on Monday last. The best Scots made 48. lOd, and Herefords and runts 4s 6d, to 4s 8d.; heavy Lin coins 4s 2d to 4s 6d. per 81b. The sheep pens were tolerably well filled.

Pigs were dull and weak. BIP.lHNGHA.M, THURSDAY.-Beef 5d to 7d mut. ton, 6d to 8d, Supply of sheep fair. Supply „f beasts small. Trade slow. Y DEAD MEAT. LONDON, MONDAY.—The supply of all descrip- tions of meat greatly exceeded the requirements of the buyers, and the trade ruled very bad all round. Top quotations were realised in some i I stances, but lower rates prevailed generally For middling and inferior qualities quotations are quite nominal, and for that class and for stale meats of all kinds buyers could not be found even at very low prices, and a consider- able quantity was left unsold. The pric-s were as underInferior beef, 28 Od to 2s 4d. middling ditto, 2s 8d to 3s 2d.; prime ditto 3s 4d to 4s Od.; Scotch ditto, 3s lOd to 4s 2d; Ameri- can Liverpool killed, best, 3s 3d to 3s 4d ditto second, 2s lOd to 3s Od; ditto hind-quarters, 3s Od to 3s 6d; ditto forequarters, Is lOd to 2s Od.

SDin. ners are coming more Ireely into the market and jsaies are more easily effected when st piers art- content to accept old rates. Fractional advances are asked for lustre wools, the demand for which is brisker, but so far a general increase in value- cannot be reported. For botany tops, strong cross-breds especially, there is a fair inquiry, and medium merinos are also in fair reouest. Value- of tops as a whole may be quoted^ at about h' above the whole level of prices, and this advance- is only partially satisfactory as compared wif-.h public sale prices of wool in London. Mohair i not active, but stocks have been to dearly brought to permit of a rebate ia prices. Alpaca shows'ar improving tendency. LEICESTER, MONDAY.—The turnover in th I locsl wool market is still very small indeed, bu the continued firmness in prices tends to Cleat, eonnance. it the miners generally get to worl k again this week we may fairly hope for a bettc condition of hade. In the yarn market tl::e loc consumption has been down to about a minimua but Rpinners are not anxious to contract themsel ves into heavy enga oem ints, preferring to tak. just what orders can be arranged to covtr currem requirements,, and a great deal of spinning mach mery usually working for this market is absol utely idle.
