SEED.-Owing to the unsettled weather of the past week our market for new seeds rwed firmer this morning; but supplies not yet being fully to hand, prices are for the most part nominal. New rapeseed comes slowly to hand, and is fully as dear. Canaryseed remains a very heavy sale. PROVISTON.-A slight increase in the demand for Irish Butter occurred towards the end of last week, -it f0I decline of 2s. on all kinds the transactions, however, S on a limited scale, and the appearance at the close of the market indicated the probability of lower rates. Dutch of best quality, and also French, met free buyers at 2s. ad- for other kinds there was a slow sale, and no change in value. Bacon.-Prime Irish and Hambro' sides of m? cure were scarce and wanted, and prices Is. to 2s. dearer Stale and hard salted were saleable at a reduction of 2s. )5 4s. Of American sides and middles nothing new to r?ep poorr?t. Hams not so much sought after.

SMITHFIELD.—There was a full average supply of forei; stock in to-day's market, but its general quality wasinf?
