LONDON, MONDAY.—The cargo market is firm, and there is a slight improvement in the general outlook, but trade is not specially active. Prices are nominally unchanged, and Russian wheats are claiming more attention at full rates. Maize is firm, and again the turn dearer. Barley is unchanged with rather more inquiry. Oats con- tirue firm with an upward tendency. Beans steady. At Mark Lane the attendance was moderate, but trade was on a restrict scale. English wheat was in limited request at about last Monday's prices. Foreign was nominally unchanged, but buyers held off. Flour was unaltered with a slow sale. Maize, owing to scarcity, was fully 6d. up on the week. Barley ruled firm a last week's prices. Oats gained 3d. to 6d. on the week, and there was a moderate inquiry at the advance. Beans and peas un- changed. MANCHESTER, THURSDAY.—There has not been much animation in the trade during the past week, and values have shown little alteration to- day. With a fair attendance, a moderate con- sumptive demand was experienced. English wheat, firm foreign Id. per cental dearer. Flour without change in price. Peas favoured buyers. Oats and beans repeated previous figures. Maize has advanced Id. since last market. Prime American mixed quoted 4s Id per cental. CATTLE. LONDON, MONDAY.—The total imports of foreign stock into London last week amounted to 2,814 head. The cattle trade was quiet, but the cold weather has given a tone to the market, and prices have tended against the buyer. Supplies of beasts were moderate, with, as usual, a large preponderance of second-rate stock. There were a few choice Scots offering, and they made 5s.; Hereford?, Devons, and runts made 4s lOd to 5s per 81b.; and for heavy Lincolns the charge was about 4s 4d to 4s 8d; inferior and secondary qualities experienced a dragging sale and were gi somewhat irregular in value. The show of sheep was below the average. There was a fair inquiry, and prices had an upward tendency; Si to 9-stone Downs made 5s 6d, 10-stone 5s 4d, 10- stone half-breds 5s 2d; 12-stone Lincolns 5s; and ewes 3s lOd to 4s per 81b. Calves were quiet, but prime small qualities firm. Pigs sold at late rates. The following were the closing quotations Coarse and inferior beasts, 2s 4d to 3s; second quality ditto, 3s 8d to Is 4d; prime large oxen, 4s 6d to 4s lOd; ditto Scots, <&c, 4s lOd to 5s; coarse and inferior sheep, 3a 8d to 4s 4d second quality ditto, 4s to 4s lOd; prime co irse-woolled ditto, 5s to 5s 4d; prime Southdown ditto, 5s 4d to 5s 6d; large coarse calves, 2s 4d to 3s 6d; prime small ditto, 4s to 5s 4d; large hogs, 3s 4d to 4s 4d; neat small porkers, 4s 6d to 5s 4d per 81b, to sink the offal. DEAD MEAT. LONDON, MONDAY.—This morning the supply on the market was large, and mostly of middling and inferior qualities, for which the trade was very bad, and prices most irregular, with a down- ward tendency, and much was left unsold. Prime quality of all kinds met a slow sale, the demand not being large. Inferior beef, 2s Od to 2s 8d.; middling ditto, 2s lOd to 38 2d. j prime ditto 3s 4d to 4s Od.; Scotch ditto, 3s lOd to 4S 2d; Ameri- can Liverpool killed, best, 3s 5d to 3s 6d; ditto second, 3s 2d to 3s 3d; ditto hind-quarters, 3s 6d to 4s Od; ditto forequarters, 2s Od to 2s 4d. English veal 3s 4d to 4s 8d; Dutch ditto 2s 8d to 4s 4d; inferior mutton, 28 4d to 3s Od; middling ditto 3s 2d to 3s Sd; prime ditto, 4s Od to 4s 4et; Scotch ditto, 4s 4d to 4s 8d New Zealand ditto, 2s 4d to 2s 8d; lambs 4s Od to 4s 4d; large pork 3s 8d to 4s Od small ditto, 4s 4d to 5s. per 81b. by the carcase. WOOL. BRADFORD, MONDAY.—Inactivity is again a marked feature in the wool market here. Business is of a hand-to-mouth description, and users are showing a considerable amount of caution in their transactions. English wool is quieter, and staplers are disappointed with the present con- dition of business in that department. Prices, however, remain unchanged both in domestic and botany sorts. In the latter class there is a fair inquiry for crossbreds, but botany tops generally are not in a good position. Holders of stocks are, however, still firm in the hope that an improve- ment will set in ere long. New business in yarns eomes to hand but slowly. Bright yarns are in the best position, but even in these merchants are doing little more than urge delivery of goods already contracted for. In prices a rather beti er inquiry for the Eabtis reported, but the American trade is dull. LEICESTER, MONDAY.—The past month has lieen very poor for business, the "coal war n being the chief cause, but the weather also has been much too warm and fine to stimulate ti e local trades, and what is usually the heavies! trading month of the year has been exceptionally small and discouraging. Notwithstanding this, wools and combed tops are in a strong position, and prices are very firm, with no disposition to ease on tempting offers. The yarn market shows signs of slight improvement in demand, and prices are stationary. BRADFORD, THURSDAY.—The market betrays little animation, justa quiet trade being done atold rates. Lustres and demi sorts are most sought after in English wool. Botanies quiet, but steady. Mohair and alpaca firm.
