REVIEW OF THE CORN TRADE. Now that fairly full figures for February are available we are able to see that it was for agriculture a month of good fortune, encouragement, and progress. The great im- provement in the late sowings of wheat was a feature of February, and it is one which con- tinues. The winter beans and oats are now promising, the tares and rye above the aver- age. Clovers look better than anticipated, but trifolium seems disappointing. There is full sowing in progress not of barley and oata also, but of spring tares and beans, and of at Jeast some nursery and rapidly maturing wheat. The meadows are of a pleasant green, and good colour also marks all the growing cereal crops. The wheat gradient this week is between Leeds and Berwick, markets south of the Trent showing a more regular level at 31s. to 32s. 6d. for nearly all the chief exchanges. London quote* 32s. 7d. Leeds, 33s. Ber- wick, 29s. 8d.; range, 3s. 4d. The barley range is between Bedford and Banbury, an odd pair of markets to present a range of 6s. 2d. per qr. between them: Bed- lord, 30s. 2d. Banbury, 2-is. range, 6s. 2d. Oats are often very cheap at Hull. and this is the case to-day. On the other hand, good averages are reported from Worcestershire, Nottinghamshire, and Lincoln: Lincoln, 20s. 9d.; Hull, 17s. 9d. range, 3s. -Mark Lane Express-
