REVIEW OF THE CORN TRADE. The Christmas holidays enabling a good many London workers to revisit their native counties showed them as fine a promise in the fields of autumn-sown wheat as even the very oldest could remember. The catch ciops are also very lusty and full, and thus provide a most useful supply of green food. A good deal of manure has been carted on to the land, while ditches have been cleaned and hedges attended to. England no longer presents that dilapidated husbandry which marked the later Victoria.n era. There is not enough capital embarked in culture, but things are much better than of \ore. In one thing only is there no improvement. Farmers continue autumn after autumn to thresh grain in mild, damp weather, and to hurry it upon unwill- ing, or at least apathetic, markets. A policy of holding corn until there has been a fort- night's frost round the stacks is much wanted. There has been next to no business done since the 23rd, and the gradients of home- grown corn are much as before that date. The home counties show the best wheat aver- agc-s and London is the best English market for oats, but barley is depressed in London, the Thames Valley, and the South-West. and does not command in Kent the accustomed prices which so frequently put Canterbury at the head of the week's barley markets for rural Britain. Seed oats are in some request in the South; Garton's especially show signs of an early inquiry, and in the Essex and Suffolk markets, King's. The demand for splitting beams is good. and the trade in aJI articles sold ready prepared for use is a growing one.—Mark Lane Express. CURRENT PRICES OF BRITISH GRAIN AND FLOUR IN MARK LANE.
