LONDON, MONDAY.— Ihe gradual reduction of value in America is exerting considerable influ- ence upon this market, and trade is dull in the ex- treme, with indubitable evidence of depression in all departments. Maize opened firm, with offers about unchangad, but afterwards became stronger, with values occasionally lid better- Barley is firm, but not active. Oats steady. Beans unchanged. At Mark Lane there was a fair attendance, but the demand all round was dio6. appointing, and values are about unchanged from Friday. The principal feature of the marketeer. the scarcity of maize on the spot, and prices ar& 6d to Is higher on the week. Wheat and flout of all descriptions sold slowly at last Monday's figures. Barley was quietly steady with a limitecJ. demand. Oats had a firm market, but there was not much doing. Beanb and peas steady. MANCHESTER, THURSDAY.—No improvemeBfr can, be reported in trade during the put .eeI;. and values have again somewhat receded. Tø- day's market was fairly attended, and there was & moderate consumptive business. English irhnaf" 3d per quarter, and foreign Id to 2d per cental lower. Flour also declined about 3d per Met.. Beans slow, and 3d per quarter cheaper. Oats and peas unchanged. Maize, through short supplies, has advanced 2d to 3d per cental øiaeø: last Thursday. CATTLE. LIVERPOOL, MONDAY.—The supply of stock watt larger than last week. The weather favourable finr slaughter. The demand was fair for cattle, withovfr alteratnion in prices. A few extra prime beast* made over the general top quotations. A gooA demand for best sheep at rather higher pnMfc Inferior classes unchanged. Beef, first class, 614 I second class 6id. third class, 4^d. j per lb.- Scotch mutton, 8d. to 6d. per lb.; Irish muttml, 74(L to 5d- per lb. Live-weight cattle, 34B. to "er cwt./ At market, 2,754 cattle and 8,042 LONDON, MONDAY.—The total imk irts of foreign stock into London last week amounted to ntt) head. The cattle trade has been quiet, withoL-V any feature. A mode, ate supply of beasts was 08 offer, including some 150 from Scotland; but as rule the condition of the stock offered left plenty1 of room f r improvement. Really choice quaHtieIr- realised firm prices, but other sorts were dull of sale and irregular in value. The best Boot* and Herefords made Ss.; runts, 4s lOd.; and heavy Lincolns, 4s 6d to 4b 8d per 81b. The sheep penv were moderately well supplied. There was a steadJP trade, and prices had an upward tendency. The best 8-stone downs made 5s 8d., 9-stone 58 6d* 10-stone 58 4d. and 12-stone 5s, per 81b. Calves were quiet but choice qualities firm. Pigs sold slowly on firmer terms. DEAD MEAT. LONDON, MOWD AY.—The trade this morning was: somewhat disappointing, as notwithstanding a moderate supply and more favourable weather buyers were scarce, and a clearance was scarcely possible. A considerable quantity of sides from Birkenhead were very stale and plain, and most of these were unsold at the close of the market. Latest quotations. Inferior beef, 2s Od to 2s gd. middling ditto, 2s lOd to 3s 2d.; prime ditto 3s 4& to 4s Od.; Scotch ditto, 3s lOd to 4s 2d; Ameri- can ijiverpooi killed, best, 3s 5d to 3s 6d; ditto second, 3s 2d to 3s 3d; ditto hind-quarters, Be 6cJ to 4s Od; ditto forequarters, 2s Od to 2a 4d.

WOOL. BRADFORD, MONDAY.—What change there is is this market is for the worse. There is only a lan- guid demand for both English and colonial woof, and sellers have made concessions rather than allow buyers to go elsewhere. Sellers' quotations in merino are not altered, but the purchasers generally get the advantage. Mohair continues quiet and in alpaca the trade is chiefly confined to qualities. There i" not so much demand for to Cross-bred sorts are unchanged, and sales axe not so much pressed. In the home trade there is no change to report. As to the piece trade a con- siderable number of looms are idle. and with favo exceptions business is dull. The merit at present shows no sign of revival. The home piece trade is still unsatisfactory. LEICEBTSR, MONDAY.—Raw wool and combed tops still remain the most cheerful and promising features of the trade and prices are held firmly in anticipation of an advance in the near futme. But the effects of the coal trade dispute are very far reaching, and extremely disastrous to manu- facturers, workpeople, merchants, and shop- keepers. The result is that trading all round is reduced to the narrowest possible requirements^ and small orders under pressure give a very doubt- ful meaning to the word •' busy." BRADFORD, THURSDAY.—Business is scarce to. day in English wools, and the general tone of the market is dull, although there is no quotable difference in price. In Botany tops sellers are prepared to take a trifle less for a good order tlpa was asked a fortnight ago; mohair a little eamSrs, jJpaea firm.
