LONDON, MONDAY. Wheat: The cargo market continues inactive, and no business haa been recorded in any direction. There was no encouragement from America, and amyp cue general dulness and depression there are r of wanting indications that to do business priced substantially lower would have to be quoted. IJa. i consequence, however, of the recent activity ill Russian wheats the shippers of these grades main- tain a tone fairly firm. Maize is quiet with crop round firm, whilst distant positions and TIITTCJ American are a shade easier. Barley is about 1ID- j changed, closing quiet. Oats quiet but steady, HtánS quiet. At Mark Lane a moderate number (if millers and dealers were present, but Thininrrw dull and disappointing, with little change is tual value. For wheat of all descriptions the in, Io-iry was poor, and prices were nominally uo- changed. Flour ruled slow, and quotations wet* I pprtially 3d. worse. Oats were steady, with afailr I <iemand. Maize was the torn, .easier, but aaxei ..Liinerica.ii i/u vuts spoCiiaHey was in limited request and a shade cheaper. Bean* and peas quiet. BIRMINGHAM, THURSDAY.—English and foreiga wheat met a quiet trade at about last week's prices A-hize and oats unaltered; barley favouring bny- rs. MANCHESTER, THURSDAY.—Trade has bam quiet and featureless during the interval, without much variation in prices. This morning's market was moderately attended, but the business passing ,as only of retail dimensions. Wheat, both Eng- lish and foreign, repeats last week's quotations, Flour dull, though nominally unchanged. Pew reduced lid per cental. Oats and beans remaia- unaltered. Maize lost the advance noticed last Tnursday, and must be quoted Id to 2d per centat below the rates then current. I CATTLE. LIVERPOOL, MONDAY.—The supply of stock wasc about the same as last week. The demand wam J fair for cattle and prices, although irregular, wcr<? j substantially without change.

In the corresponding period of last year we j r< eived 1,756, in 1891, 9,288, in 18S0, 4,990, i» 1889, 9,678 head. At Liverpool were received 384 blasts from Baltimore, 1,301 beasts from Montreal GO5, beast from Boston, 435 beasts and 335 sheep j from Montreal, 605 beasts from New York, and j ;{58 beasts from Newport News, and at Southamp- t n 9 beasts Jersey and Guernsey. The cattle l iade has been very quiet all round, but for choice qualities of stock full prices have been realised, A moderate number of beasts were available, but /i'ime beasts were again scarce. Bnsiness through-' out was restricted. The best Scots made 5s.; Hoe- f > ds, and runts, 4s lOd. to 5s.; Devons, 4s 8d to 4 lOd. and heavy Lincolns, 4s 7d to 4a 8d per SIb. v- edium and inferior descriptions were an irregu- I lar market. The sheep pens were fairly well filled. There was a dull trade and prices were muck J rJ out the same as last week.

BIRMINGHAM, THURSDAY.—Beef ójd to lid,- mutton 6d to 8id; best beef 7id; fair supply; traae slow. DEAD MEAT. LONDON, MONDAY.—The supply in this marked I was large and the trade generally very bad. Prime descriptions in most cases were disposed of at quotations, but prices for lower qualities varied I considerably, and finished with a drooping teiF- .lcncy and the market was clemredL Latest quotations.

BRADFORD, MONDAY.—The market was quiet. :.nd there was a weakening in prices for all except t' ie most favoured descriptions. Easier raws are pecially noticeable in crossbred top.- such as 36 and 40's, and in mohair prices are probably acl hwer. Alpaca remains quiet. However, top mak- ers generally have more inquiry, and there is it belief that prices have reached the bottom point. BRADFORD, THURSDAY.—The market is to-day still quiet, both in English and Colonial sorter tiough without alterations in prices, and there I seems little immediate hope of improvement in view of the depression in the general trade,through the coal strike and the flatness of the A merieaa market. The tone is, however, not despondent- vJ ohair quiet; alpaca firm.
